In Memoriam of:

Yaacov (Kobi) Shemaya

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.

When Asher, z"l, Kobi's son, was dropped off at the base on the morning of the fighting, his father Kobi z"l decided to drive him to the base and the two fell into an ambush by Hamas terrorists near Re'im.
