Arbel, Omer and Yonatan Kedem Siman Tov

Resident of the Gaza Envelope

The Kedem family stands as a poignant symbol of goodness and love. Tamar, who was not just socially active but a spirited activist, led an inspired campaign for the Eshkol Regional Council, capturing our collective hearts in recent months. Tragically, she was killed along with her partner Yonatan and their three young children: Shahar, Arbel, and Omer. This is a horror and a crime against humanity that contradicts any moral law and international law. A stain on the murderers, their senders, and supporters. It will take a long time to return to a new life. Clearly, Tamar’s initiatives and spirit will continue to influence Eshkol. And the memory of this charming family, which was eradicated cruelly, will not be erased.

    Words cannot express the grief and rage that American Jews feel from the depths of our soul at the murder of this beautiful, joyous family. We promise to spend the rest of our days working for their memory, planting seeds of goodness and tirelessly battling evil. May God avenge their blood.
