In Memoriam of:

Idan Herman

Age: 26

From: Kibbutz Palmachim

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.

Idan Herman was a first-year engineering student at the Afeka College of Engineering in Tel Aviv. Raised in Palmachim, a kibbutz on Israel’s central coast, he loved the sea.

On Saturday morning, Oct. 7, his parents, Revital and Avri, got a call from their son saying that he and his girlfriend, Eden Naftali, 23, were at the Supernova music festival near the border with Gaza and that he and other concert-goers were under attack by Hamas terrorists. At one point he stopped talking and Revital could hear only gunshots.

Avri Herman told the Wall Street Journal that his son was hit with shrapnel in his leg and chest. They later identified his body at Soroka Medical Center in Beersheva, after first being shown a body of another victim. Idan was buried last week at Palmachim, close to the sea. Survivors include his two sisters, Noa and Nofar. Eden was also confirmed dead.
