Hila Keylin, 41, from Mazkeret Batya, was killed by Hamas terrorists at the Supernova music festival on October 7.

She is survived by four children as well as her parents and four siblings.

Her daughter, Lior Saadi, wrote on Instagram that “my mother was the most beautiful person I ever saw.”

She said her mother went to the festival “to celebrate her birthday,” and never came home.

Hila’s relative, Shiran Bouhin, wrote on Facebook that she “can’t believe you’re no longer alive.”

“We won’t see your joy for life anymore, your contagious laugh, the ease with which you took life,” she added. “My heart is broken. I hope you’re in a better place now.”

Her close friend Ayala Shaye wrote on Instagram that the pair were inseparable as they attended parties, festivals and gatherings together.

“My whole life she’s been with me, laughing, crying, dancing — my other half,” she wrote. “I can’t grasp writing about her in past tense… you left your speaker here, but without you I have nobody to listen to music with. I know that in heaven right now you are happy and dancing the way you loved.”

Her friend Niko Peri wrote on Facebook that Keylin lived as she died.

“Everything in high gear,” he wrote. “How much you loved life, joy, and of course music which moved you… you always loved noise and chaos, that was your life and that was your death. Rest in peace Hilush.”
