Forty-five days after the October 7 massacre, the communal dining hall at Kibbutz Be’eri reopens for the first time.

Kibbutz Be’eri was one of the hardest-hit communities when some 3,000 terrorists breached the Gaza border and rampaged through communities, massacring some 1,200 people and kidnapping around 240, while committing unimaginable acts of brutality and cruelty.

Over one hundred people were slaughtered at the kibbutz, with dozens more kidnapped and taken to Gaza as hostages.

Kibbutz member Miri tells the Kan public broadcaster that it was very special to see the images of the dining room being used again at Be’eri.

“It’s very moving to see these images. The dining room is colorful and shiny, full of people, and the neon lights are on,” she says.

While the community was largely evacuated after the assault, a number of people remain there for basic agricultural needs, as well as a civil defense unit.
