Tal Grushka

IDF

Those who met Tal for the first time saw a handsome, tall, and sturdy man, who appeared almost tough. But Tal had a special gentleness, combined with sensitivity and a bit of charming nerdiness you just don’t see anymore these days.

Tal served in Nahal as a company commander. He was a special leader. When his soldiers would finish their week at the base, he would tell them to call their grandmothers before Shabbat.

Tal was one of those serious people who you could rely on in any situation, but alongside his seriousness, he had a sense of humor and a playful spirit that captivated all his little nieces and nephews who always looked up to him with big eyes.

Tal was the kind of person who could deliver a sharp speech that could motivate not only his soldiers but also all the trees, bushes, and rocks around him that witnessed it, and he could also decide to write a slam poetry piece and deliver it with professionalism.

On that cursed Saturday, Tal and his soldiers were called to the south. There was a house in the Gaza village where hostages and terrorists were located. Tal went there with seven soldiers with his characteristic sense of determination and courage and did not return.

His soldiers say that they owe their lives to him.

Tal is survived by his parents, Adva and Yossi, his brother, Itai, and Hadar. That Saturday, he lost his life and saved lives with bravery, determination, and courage.
