Mac and Cheese

Roey Weizer Z"L

Roey Weizer was a sergeant in the intelligence unit of Battalion 13. He served in a fortified position on the Gaza border. With the outbreak of the Iron Sword War, he managed to reach the security room and be in a protected place. Following the situation assessment, he decided to go out with three other soldiers to engage in combat with the terrorists, divert the fire from the security room, and allow the other soldiers and command personnel to gain time and enter a secure area. In the exchange of fire, Roey saved about 12 soldiers and was killed while protecting his friends and the country. He was 21 years old at the time of his death.


This dish was Roey's favorite. Roey was very particular about his food, and this was one of the few recipes he liked to indulge in straight from the baking dish. Occasionally, family members would find Roey eating from the dish even in the late hours of the night.
