In Memoriam of:

Jake Marlowe

Age: 26

From: Ma'alot

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.

Jake Marlowe, z"l, was murdered at the Nova festival where he worked as a security guard.

Born in London, Marlowe moved to Israel two years ago. His friends described him as a kind, easy-going young man, who was “a massive fan of Israel."

A successful musician, Marlowe formerly played bass and toured with the UK hardcore band Desolated. 

Jake left a settled life in England out of an inner voice of Jewish and Zionist identity, to the city of Ma'alot, worked in construction and dreamed of enlisting. 

According to his lifelong friend, Daniel Aboudy, Jake was "A staunch Zionist, Marlowe moved to Israel to connect with his Jewish roots a few years after finishing his studies at London’s JFS school. He was a massive fan of Israel, he was thriving there and living his best life.”
