In Memoriam of:

David Shalev

Age: 75

In Loving Memory of the Innocent Souls Taken Too Soon. United in peace, their light shines on in the hearts left behind. October 7, 2023, a day of sorrow, but their memories guide us toward a hopeful tomorrow.

David z"l and his son Tal z"l were brutally murdered in their home in Kibbutz Nir Oz. You were also connected in your life to the worlds above, and now they surround you with love. David would stand in the center of the grass in front of Eve and Yehuda's house, he would bend and spin around, and in his hands a thick and long rope that draws a huge circle of movement. Around him would stand in a circle his three sons, sometimes cousins from the Peleg family would also join. David and the rope would rotate and the cousins jump one by one as the rope passes under them. Be careful not to hit the rope or get disqualified and leave the game! David was the son of his mother who she and her sisters survived the Holocaust, who lost their entire family and came to this country thinking "Never Again". In recent years, David devotedly cared for Aunt Ester, the third sister who survived the Holocaust and was a childless widow. The cruel death of him and Tal and all the other murdered and victims of the horrible massacre is heartbreaking, may their memory be blessed.
