In Memoriam of:

Moti Elkabetz

Age: 40

From: Moshav Yeted

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.

Moti Elkabetz, 40, from Yated, was murdered by Hamas terrorists at the Psyduck music festival near Kibbutz Nirim on October 7.

He was murdered alongside his 17-year-old nephew, Matan Rosenberg, and his brother-in-law, Noi Maudi.

He was buried next to his brother-in-law in Moshav Avshalom.

He is survived by his wife, Sivan, sons Idan, 12, and Noam, 11, daughter Romi, 5, and his parents Mazel and Roni and his siblings Lior, Ran, Peri and Linoy.

Elkabetz worked in agriculture and was a huge fan of the Hapoel Beersheba soccer club, and also loved to bake, his friends and family recalled, noting that he was the “jokester of the family WhatsApp group.”

He would take his boys to Hapoel Beersheba games, and they discovered after his murder that one of the last photos they took at a game together featured Idan wearing a jersey with “7” and Noam wearing one with “10” — the date he was killed.

His wife, Sivan, posted a photo on Facebook sitting on the ground between the graves of her husband, Moti, and brother, Noi: “Sitting between my two angels, I feel you close to me and I miss you and can’t believe it.”

On his gravestone, it reads: “Unique in unconditional love, you will always stay in our hearts, pure and good of heart, God will protect you… You were taken from us too soon, there is a hole inside us and longing in our hearts. You were an angel and you will remain an angel.”

Sivan later wrote: “We love you and miss you, you are so very missed, Moti my beloved husband, and Noi my brother, rest in peace… My angel, my life, my heart, I love you, I miss you, your loss is felt so much.”
