Kochava Even Chaim, 37 of Beit Hagai was one of four Israelis murdered in a terrorist drive-by shooting attack on Route 60 near Kiryat Arba, east of Hebron on August 31, 2010. Hamas claimed responsibility for the attack.
Kochava Even Chaim caught a lift with Yitzhak and Talya Ames when their vehicle was attacked by terrorists who sprayed the vehicle with gunfire. All four passengers of the vehicle were hit by numerous shots from short range and pronounced dead at the scene.
Kochava was a teacher in Efrat.
Her husband Maimon one of the first Zaka first aid volunteers to arrive at the scene discovered that his wife was among the victims.
Meir Damari a resident of Beit Hagai said,
“Only after many years of trying did Kochava manage to get pregnant and bring a child into the world.
Now she is left without a mother,” he said sadly.
Kochava Even Chaim was buried in Ashdod. She is survived by her husband and their 10-year-old daughter.
Israel's Voice commitment to memorialize each victim of terror doesn't end here. We are currently reaching out to those who have been victimized and to every family who's lost loved one(s) due to terror. Your story must be told and we intend to create a documentary for each individual. Silence is no longer an option. Contact us today to set up an appointment. firstname.lastname@example.org Our preference is to make your story heard in English, but Hebrew is also fine. Videos will be subtitled for the world to understand.
