Shmuel Chagbi

Shmuel Chagbi

Born on the 17th of Cheshvan, 5713, in Be'er Sheva
Fell in the Yom Kippur War on the 11th of Tishrei, 5734.

Shmuel was a bright and diligent student, and in his youth he excelled at Tanach and Talmud. He had an ability to understand profound ideas and possessed a spectacular, rare memory. He understood things excellently, was able to delve to the root of matters, and didn't rest until he understood each and every Talmudic passage correctly.

When learning in the Yeshiva, Shmuel's voice could be heard above all the others. It was a clear voice that testified about the self-confidence of its owner, about the possession of a deep understanding, and a talent for self-expression. He was diligent in his studies, stemming from a deep feeling of destiny. His learning was done with excitement and a true love.

On the day before Yom Kippur, he was sent to strengthen the Hermon outpost. Shmuel was killed during the bitter battle over the outpost.

In a letter of consolation to the bereaved family, the commander of his unit wrote: "Shmuel was an excellent soldier, dedicated to the mission, and loved by all the soldiers and officers in the unit."

May His Memory Be Blessed
