Sgt. First Class Urija Bayer


Sgt. First Class Urija Bayer, 20, a commando in the Maglan unit from the northern town of Maalot-Tarshiha, died of wounds sustained in fighting in southern Gaza on December 14.
A Messianic Jew whose family moved to Israel from Germany to help Holocaust survivors, Bayer leaves behind his parents, Gideon and Nelli, brother Zuriel and two sisters Rachel and Odelia.
Bayer’s uncle Micah Bayer said that his nephew “believed deeply in what he was doing. I met one of his friends from his unit who was also wounded and he said that Urija was the strongest man in the unit, physically and mentally.”
