Cochav Elkayam-Levy has been selected to receive the Israel Prize for solidarity for working to bring attention to Hamas’s crimes against women and children in the October 7 atrocities.

“It is with great privilege that we work to raise awareness and give voice to the silenced victims and families whose lives were shattered by the October 7th atrocities,” she says in a statement released by Hebrew University of Jerusalem, where she is a human rights law expert. “We must stand firm against the stark denial and the increasing tide of antisemitism.”

“I also want to express my heartfelt gratitude to the numerous individuals who have tirelessly dedicated themselves to this vital cause alongside me,” she adds.
