Apple Pie

Roi Biber Z"L

Roi served in the Yahalom Unit. He completed his military service in November 2019 after serving for 5 years as an officer. Known for his infectious smile and deep blue eyes, Roi was loved by everyone around him. He was known for his kindness and equal treatment of everyone, regardless of their background. Friends from both home and the army agree that Roi was simply number 1 in everything - in humanity, in helping others, and in dedication.

Roi was a graduate student in mechanical engineering at Ben-Gurion University in Be'er Sheva. Before the war, he was approaching his third year of mechanical engineering studies at the University, where he lived with his partner, Maya, for 3 years.

Roi was drafted during the early stages of the "Iron Sword" war and fell during an operation to destroy enemy armored vehicles on 18th November 2023. He was 28 years old at the time of his death and left behind parents, two sisters, and his partner.


Roi only loved to eat one cake: his mother Karen's apple pie.
