Neta Boaziz (Morali), 40, of Rishon Lezion, was murdered by Hamas terrorists at the Supernova music festival on October 7.

She was slain alongside her boyfriend, Shay Muzzafi.

Although Shay’s body was identified after a few days, Neta was considered missing for more than a week until her body was recovered. She was buried in Rishon Lezion on October 16.

She is survived by her three children, Ofek, Eden and Or, her mother Shoshana, brother Henry and sister Hen. Her father, Pyer, died in 2020.

Her friends and family said she loved attending raves and music festivals, and didn’t care that some people told her she was too old to continue that life.

Her friend, Dana Israeli, noted that Neta and Shay met through a social group of divorcees, “and it was love at first sight that only grew and blossomed, you were a winning couple, loved and surrounded by friends and loved ones who you attracted toward you with your incredible energy.”

Neta’s close friend, Rinat Bachar, noted that she would hear from her almost daily — “‘I have so much to tell you, call me,’ that’s your almost daily sentence that hasn’t been heard since that day. And now I have so much to tell you and I can’t.”

Her sister, Hen, wrote on Facebook about the feeling of “wanting to call you but I know that nobody will answer on the other end.”

Hen noted that the sisters “went through not easy times throughout the years, with many ups and downs. Now I am sorry for every moment I wasted not being close to you. In these moments we understand how much everything is dwarfed and how much nothing really matters. I am comforted by the fact that we were in a good period, that we spoke, laughed, gossiped with each other.”

At least in your final moments, Hen added, “you were in Shay’s arms, who embraced and protected you until the last second, at least he loved you like in the movies, like you always dreamed you would have.”
