Yizkor

Translated by Jerrold Landau

May the nation of Israel remember its sons and daughters who fell in the Israel Defense Forces, the faithful and brave ones who gave their lives in the battle for the founding of the State of Israel. May the nation of Israel remember and be blessed through its children, and mourn over the eternal splendor, the beauty of bravery, the holiness of the will and the dedication of those who perished in the terrible battlefield. May the brave ones of the War of Independence and the victory be engraved upon the heart of Israel for all generations.

Shaul Averbukh of blessed memory

Translated by Jerrold Landau

He was the son of Emanuel and Sara, a family of farmers from the village of Vaskovtsy in the region of Orheyev. He spent his childhood in the vineyards, fields and forests on the banks of the Dniester. He loved agriculture and was expert in all of its manifestations. He pined for agriculture even when he studied the trade of carpentry. “I feel the field,” he would say. “The machines are not in accordance with my spirit.” He was a member of the Hashomer Hatzair movement in Bessarabia, and he prepared himself to make aliya. He made aliya in 1935. He joined the Shamir Kibbutz (near Ramat Yochanan) and worked toward the conquest, and also worked in the port of Haifa. He was active in Shamir during the disturbances of 5696 (1936). He took part in reconnaissance. He was a member of the Fire Squadron under the command of Wingate. In 1938, he transferred with his squadron from Shamir to add to the strength of Kibbutz Negba. He immediately participated in the local defense and was one of the pillars of the battle of Negba. He had gray eyes, a smile, strength, power, and a good heart. He was quiet and modest like a working man during the time of peace, but the strength of his spirit was especially revealed as a soldier who fought with extreme might, self sacrifice and boundless dedication. He was calm and collected at all times of nature. He willingly accepted every command, but he was not interested in commanding others. He always went out at the head of every activity.

At the beginning of May, 1948, he was active in the region of Negba as the head of an armored force of Palmach. He was the right hand man of the Negba commander Yitzchak Dubno of blessed memory. When the Egyptians invaded, he was a machine gunner in the front lines against Irak A-Syudan guard. At times of need, he was also involved in laying mines. He went out to the minefields each night to gather the weapons and armor that had been left by the enemy. In his final activity, he went out to lay mines around an Egyptian tank that was stationed between Negba and Irak A-Syudan. He fell a few hours after the commencement of the second truce of that period, on 12 Tammuz 5708 (July 19, 1948). He was buried in Negba.

Anshel Asher Kamchi of blessed memory

Translated by Jerrold Landau

Anshel was born in Orheyev. He received a traditional education during his childhood, and later studied in a gymnasium. He was a veteran of Gordonia, and he always desired to make aliya to the Land. His desire was for a life of agriculture in the land of Israel, and in 1935, his dream was realized and he made aliya. His first steps were in the direction of agricultural work. However, there was unemployment in the Land, and despite this, many of the orchard owners in Hadera did not engage Hebrew labor. This affected him strongly. He was not content, and continued to struggle for his livelihood in agricultural work.

On Friday 27 Tammuz 5696 (July 17, 1936) he was killed by shots from an ambush next to Kfar Kakon, as he was returning to Hadera from his work in the neighboring orchards. He was 22 when he died.

Yehudah Spivak of blessed memory

Translated by Jerrold Landau

Yehudah Spivak (the grandson of Yudel Spivak) was born in Orheyev. He made aliya to the Land in 1933. He was injured during an ambush on the Netanya – Givat Chaim Road on 14 Elul and died on 19 Elul 5696 (1936) at the age of 23.

He and his three sisters were educated by their elderly grandmother. In the Land he was a driver. He was injured on the road as he was sitting at the steering wheel, and he died.

He was always prepared for this. After the death of his friend Kamchi, he said to his friends: You will see that I will also fall as I am at the wheel on the road. Regarding the question – Why, for what reason, do you drive on the roads during these days? He would answer: Who will drive? It is forbidden to show them that we are cowards and people who give in.

Anshel Asher Kamchi

Anshel Asher Kamchi

In his diary entry from 4 Nisan 5689 (1929), I found the following written, along with everything else: “I desire to defend my people with my blood and my soul.” He was 14 years old at the time. Years passed, and he became fully immersed in the pioneering youth movement. He influenced his friends in the gymnasium to follow after him, and they did so. He had the power of persuasion, and many of his friends respected this appropriately. “With Anshel in Gordonia” was also our place. While he was still a child, just beginning to read books, he would bring friends of his age to the couch near the hot fireplace during winter days and read to them Jewish history, especially the legends of the strength of our nation in ancient days.

Chaim Kamchi

Two weeks before his death, he wrote to his friend Mordechai Ziserman about his work situation and how he became accustomed to it. The following is the content:

“I wandered about for many weeks and was not able to get myself set up with work. I was very worried, for I saw no possibilities before me. I returned to Hadera. After weeks of idleness, I began to work in an orchard for 15 grush a day. I could not continue in that orchard. I found another place where I worked only until the outbreak of the disturbances, for the orchard was located near Kakon, a dangerous Arab village. After two weeks of idleness, I worked once again for 14 days in another orchard. Later I transferred to this orchard where I now work in spurts, for it is also located in a dangerous place. However I hope that I will be able to earn enough to sustain myself, if only I remain healthy. I got used to work quite well. I passed through the most difficult period of getting used to a working life, and now I have no more fear of work, for I participated in the most difficult tasks in the orchard and did not retreat. I work hard and return from work tired. I would be happy if the few hours of rest would be richer in content, but I have not yet found this. I have male and female friends, but I am not sufficiently interested in them so as to be able to spend time in their company and forget the tribulations of the day of work. If only we were together, friends from the past, it would undoubtedly be good for us. Of course now, with the agitated state of life, we cannot think about actualizing our plans.”

From “The Disturbances of 5636” page 659, by Mordechai Ziserman

Moshe Roitman of blessed memory

Translated by Jerrold Landau

Moshe Roitman

Moshe Roitman

He was born in Orheyev in 1899. He assisted his father in the sheep and cattle trade while he was still a lad. However, business was not in his spirit, and he was attracted to the work of the land. Moshe went out in 1917 to work in the fields with his brother and two of their friends.

He joined the Forer group in 1920 and made aliya to the Land. He remained in Haifa, and looked for work already on his first day there. He started in a bakery and moved over to the port. He was among the defenders during the disturbances of 1921.

That year, we arrived in the Land as a group of chalutzim, and Moshe greeted us with words of encouragement. He advised us to join a group of porters who work at the port (the group of Berel Raptor).

Moshe excelled with his diligence and eagerness. After some time, we obtained animals for the work. The competition from the Arab wagon drivers was fierce, however thanks to the connections Moshe had with the Arab merchants, and his talent of being able to forge good relations with whomever he came into contact, we were able to withstand the competition for two years. When the group broke up, Moshe continued to work among the Arabs on his own. Moshe was a strong, fearless youth. One day, he decided to open up a butcher shop in the Arab marketplace in Haifa. He had to pay rent for the store, and he was a Jew among the Arabs. He trusted in himself and in his relations with his Arabic acquaintances that nothing bad would happen to him…

When the disturbances of 1929 broke out, we warned him and begged him not to go to the marketplace. However he laughed and said, “I am not afraid.” He went and did not return. He was murdered by one of his neighbors.

Moshe, the fine land, my friend who was loved by his fellowman, was brought to burial without any opportunity to bid him farewell. Only four friends, myself included, were given permission by the British to accompany him to the cemetery in lower Haifa, to be buried among the rest of the victims in Haifa.

May his soul be bound in the bonds of eternal life.

Menachem Rotkov of blessed memory

Translated by Jerrold Landau

Menachem Rotkov

Menachem Rotkov

Menachem the son of Mordechai and Tzipora Rotkov was born in Orheyev on November 11, 1925. He was educated in the Tarbut School in his city, and he made aliya to the Land with his parents in 1936, and continued his studies. Due to the difficult economic circumstances of the family, he was forced to end his studies at age 13. After a long and difficult job search, he was accepted by the Af”k Bank. He quickly demonstrated his practical talents, diligence, his love of order, dedication to work, and primarily his well-developed sense of responsibility. He endeared himself to his workmates and to his entire surroundings. He joined Hatzofim and Gordonia, and devoted most of his free time to work in the movement. He decided to go to Hachshara (preparation for agricultural work in Israel), but he had to delay this for two years due to the situation with his family, until his father found a job. Only then, at the age of 17, did he go to Degania Alef. About a year later, he transferred to Neve Eitan, and there to his permanent place in the Chermonim group (Chemdia). He was a member of the secretariat of Chemdia, the central work committee, the organizer of work, and the security forces. He was the first to fill any responsible and dangerous task, without hesitation. He saw service in the Haganah as a personal obligation and found his place at all times, even though by nature he was not one who thirsted for battle. He excelled with his straightforwardness, his external neatness and the pureness of his heart. He was modest in his actions, a lover of peace, a faithful friend to his friends, and a dedicated and beloved child to his parents.

He formed a strong bond with the land and its soil. At the age of 14, he was one of the first of the demonstrators against the While Paper. He was injured during the demonstration. He always bore the idea of national independence and communal life upon his heart. He desired a life of labor and creativity. He gave expression to all of his thoughts and desires in his letters and articles.

As a soldier and a commander, he had great influence upon his men with his appearance, his personality, his persuasive talents and his faith. He bestowed of himself upon his charges. He was drafted in May 1948, and served as a company commander of the 13th squadron of the Golani Brigade. He participated in the defense of the farms in the region of Beit Shean, Gilboa and the Jezreel Valley. At the end of the first ceasefire, on July 9, 1948, the Iraqis opened a large attack and began to advance in the direction of Zarin. Some of their forces turned to the eastern Gilboa in the direction of Sandala-Mizaar. Menachem and his squadron were in the brigade whose task it was to check the advance of the enemy in that direction and to guard the left flank of our forces. A soldier of his squadron was injured during the battle with the enemy on July 10, 1948. Menachem left his fortification and hastened to assist the injured soldier. On his way he was shot in the neck and he fell on the spot. Due to the conditions, his corpse remained on the spot along with the rest of those who fell in the battle. Only after 30 days were the bodies of the martyrs given over to the hands of the Israel Defense Forces, and Menachem was brought to burial in the cemetery of his kibbutz.

May his soul be bound in the bonds of eternal life.
