Eden Ohayon, 24, from Tirat Carmel, was murdered by Hamas terrorists at the Supernova music festival on October 7.

Ohayon was missing for three days before her body was found, and she was buried in the Sde Yehoshua Cemetery in Haifa on October 10.

She went to the festival with her cousin, Yarin Ephraim, who worked with her at The Cocktail Box, a customizable bar service for private events, and was tending the bar alongside her colleague Orel Abuhatzira. All three were murdered

Ohayon is survived by her mother, Iris Benhamo, and her two older sisters, Ori and Omri.

She grew up in Haifa and moved to Tirat Carmel with her mother in 2021.

During her time in the IDF, Ohayon began working on the side at the Dream Bar, a company that provided and served alcohol at private events, first as a server and later as a manager. Eventually, she rose through the ranks and ended up founding The Cocktail Box by Dream Bar with Abuhatzira and Ephraim.

Her boss and friend, Eyal Ben Dahan, wrote a eulogy for her on Facebook, praising her giving personality and professionalism.

“Thank you for being by our side; thank you for being a part of my family. Run the world from above as only you know how,” wrote Ben Dahan.

Ohayon’s friend Lian Margi told a local Haifa-based news outlet that she loved parties and would often post pictures from her adventures to Instagram.

She even posted to Instagram from the Supernova festival, just hours before the massacre happened.

“She was the most beautiful [person] in the world,” Margi said. “[And] the most sociable person there is. The happiest. She never stopped laughing until her last day. She had an incredible love of life.”

Another friend, Daniel Mozer, wrote a memorial post on Instagram mourning the loss of Ohayon.

“You will be forever etched in my heart, my Eden, with your curly hair and blue eyes that captured the whole world,” wrote Mozer.
