On Saturday, October 7th, in the early morning, Hamas terrorists burst into Yahav's family bedroom in Kibbutz Kfar Aza in the south of Israel. Yahav tried with all his strength to block the terrorists, allowing his wife, Shaylee, and their one-month-old daughter, Shaya, to escape. Shortly afterward, Yahav was murdered in cold blood. Shaylee defended baby Shaya, with no food or water, for 27 hours until they were rescued.
Please help provide solace and support to the grieving family of filmmaker Yahav Winner. Your donations go directly to Yahav's widow, Shaylee, and baby, Shaya, as they navigate life after his tragic loss. Stand with us in solidarity against terror and contribute to a brighter future for this shattered family.
