Ari Zenilman


Ari Zenilman, 32 years old from Jerusalem. Son of Robert and Lisa. Chava’s husband and father of Ahia, Tali and Maayan Nechama.
Simchat Torah Shabbat was supposed to be the first Shabbat for the young Zenilman family in their new home with baby Maayan, who was born on the eve of Sukkot. With the outbreak of the terrorist attack, Ari was drafted into the reserves and left without hesitation and not before asking the neighbors to look after his family. Two months later, on 10.12.23, Ari was killed in a battle in the southern Gaza Strip, when the infantry force he was operating in was hit by an IED at a school where terrorists and anti-tank squads of Hamas were operating.

Funeral Date: 11/12/2023
