Ben Mizrachi, 22, was murdered by Hamas terrorists while attending the Nova music festival in southern Israel on October 7, 2023. A former IDF medic, reports indicate he was killed while using his skills to help the injured.

Mizrahi, originally from Vancouver, immigrated to Israel after high school and immediately joined the IDF. He had finished his service and was planning to enter the real-estate field in Israel, the Canadian Jewish News reported.

He had two younger sisters who had also made aliyah. His parents flew to Israel immediately after news broke of the terrible attack, but were told that their son had been killed only once they had arrived. His funeral was in Israel, on October 11.

“He was always the first one to start a dance. He could connect with anyone — no matter what age or background. He was all of our parents’ favorite friend, and was a son every parent could only dream about,” a friend told the paper.
