In Memoriam of:

Ido Even

Age: 14

From: Kibbutz Be'eri

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.

Rinat Segev-Even, 44, Chen Even, 45, and two of their children, Alon, 16, and Ido, 14, were murdered in Kibbutz Be’eri on October 7 by Hamas terrorists.

Tomer, 11 and Nir, 8, succeeded in fleeing and escaped alive.

For hours the family begged for help — with Rinat even posting on Facebook saying that they were hiding in their safe room, demanding the IDF to show up — but no help arrived.

After 12 days, their bodies were finally located and their deaths were confirmed.

Yuval Segev, a political reporter and a cousin of Rinat, eulogized the family and expressed the enormous pain their losses have brought.

“The Even family from Be’eri — you were six people, and now just two remain,” wrote Segev. “Little Tomer and Nir, without parents, without your big brothers, without a home.”

Segev wrote that it is “important that you know, no matter how cliche it sounds, that they were the absolute best.”

Rinat, he said, was a social worker “who worked with and helped people that nobody else cared about. She was a great listener, a moral support and even sometimes financial support to so many people.”

Chen, Segev wrote, “was an incredible father. A tough guy with a heart like butter.”

Alon, he said “was one of those kids who succeeded in being liked by everyone and getting along with all without any noise or fanfare.” And little Ido, he said, “was the funniest kid in class, one of those who drive the teachers crazy but they can’t get mad at him.”
