On November 13th, we learned that Israeli-Canadian Vivian Silver – believed captured in Gaza – was murdered in her home in Be’eri. It took 5 weeks for them to identify her body.

Vivian has been an inspiration to the NIF family since before October 7th. She was a woman of compassion, humanity and an endless, deep and lasting commitment to Jewish-Arab partnership and to peace. Our hearts have been ripped out.

On social media right now, tributes to Vivian by dozens of her Israeli colleagues are being shared and reshared literally in the thousands. News articles are exposing her life’s work to millions.

We’ve collected some of those tributes online here.
