Dikla Arava


Murdered in the Gaza Envelope. Her son Tomer, 17, was kidnapped to Gaza along with her partner’s daughters, Dafna, 14, and Ella, 8. Her partner Noam Elyakim’s condition is still unknown. A terrorist posted a live video on her personal Facebook showing them as hostages. She leaves behind a family and children.

“I knew Dikla Arava for just a few hours. She was one of many wonderful people deciding to make a change in their lives and going into teaching and education after earning at least one academic degree,” a colleague says. “We met on orientation day; an impressive and beautiful woman entered the room. Her calmness and nobility won me over. There are students who make their way into your heart, and the relationship with them becomes deep and very special, even after they’ve graduated. Without really knowing her, I knew deep down that Dikla would be one of those: the one who would lead the group, connect people, offer a kind word, and even bake a cake.”

Funeral Date: 12/10/2023
