IDF Captain Ron Zarfati, 22, an officer in the Air Force’s air traffic control unit, was killed at the Supernova music festival while off-duty on October 7.

Her boyfriend, Idan Haramaty, was also murdered at the rave.

Ron’s father, Erez Zarfati from Hadera, told Channel 13 news in an interview that she was “super super smart, an excellent student, on the one hand very intelligent but the other hand, super colorful, full of life and taking the world by storm.”

Ron’s friend, Nehora Mizrahi, described her as “an angel with green eyes, a captivating smile, and whoever needed got an enveloping hug as well.”

“Ron was a girl of freedom, a girl of love and generosity, you had so much love, you had so much more to give the universe, but on one Saturday, evil took over, and put a halt to your dancing,” Mizrahi wrote on Facebook. “Ron, you left us to continue the path of truth and love from where you left off. To continue to accept others, including those who are different, to spread love, to smile, to wrap the needy in hugs, to be there for each other.”

Her younger brother, Bar Zarfati, wrote on Facebook that he was struggling to come to terms with the cruel death of “my angel.”

“You’re the smiliest girl that I know, the most social, the biggest angel in the universe, you always helped me and were always there for me,” he wrote. “You always wanted me to mature, and it never happened. I promise you I will get a hold of myself, I’ll be the so-called ‘big brother’ — I’ll be here for our parents, for Raz, we will all be here for each other.”

“My angel, I want everyone to know, that there was no one like you and there will be no one like you. I couldn’t have asked for a better big sister than you.”
