Yom HaZikaron (Israel memorial day)



We invite you to participate in our at home baking initiative, offering engaging home-based activities designed to deepen our understanding of the October 7 attacks victims. We are collaborating with “Tastes Like Home”, an initiative bringing forth the stories of different hostages through their favorite cookie recipes. You will be able to purchase a baking kit, and share a favorite recipe and life story of a fallen hostage. Each kit costs $36. All proceeds will be donated to the Hostages and Missing Families Forum.

Options include:

  • The late Uriel Baruch’s Chocolate Balls: Uriel, married to Rachel with two young kids, exudes immediate warmth, sporting an ever-present smile. He lives by seizing every moment, embodying joy, laughter, and optimism. Meeting Rachel at a party, he cherishes adventures and gatherings. Yet, his absence weighs heavy: his kids yearn for soccer games, his family awaits joyful moments, and his friends anticipate lively parties. Tragically, Uriel was abducted from the Nova party in Re'im, leaving loved ones in a torturous limbo until March 26, when his family received the news that he was murdered and that his body is held in Gaza.
  • The late Ran Gvili’s Kinder Rolls: Late Major General Ran Gvili, of the Negev Special Patrol Unit, epitomized quiet compassion, aiding many discreetly. His genuine care for others defined him, always attentive and eager to assist. He enjoyed motorcycles, gatherings with friends, family time, and arak lemonade. Despite being on sick leave awaiting surgery, Ran's warrior spirit impelled him into action when needed. Tragically, he fell in battle at Kibbutz Alumim, and his body was kidnapped to Gaza. He was supposed to celebrate his 25th birthday on Sunday, October 8th.
  • The late Eitan Levi’s Chocolate Chip Cookies: Eitan Levy, a devoted father and compassionate man, cherished weekend trips with his son Shahar and indulged in hearty meals together. He adored his two German Shepherds, Casey and Belle, whim he trained lovingly. As a dedicated taxi driver, he was always ready to assist others. Eitan found joy in music, particularly the Revivo Project and Dudu Aharon. Tragically, his life took a dark turn on October 7 when he disappeared after dropping off a friends at kibbutz Be'eri. Sixty-two agonizing days later, his family received the devastating news of his murder and captivity.
