Fredo, Abraham (Avi)


Son of Rivka and Chaim, was born on January 4, 1962 in Jerusalem. Avraham was a member of a large family with Zionist educational motivation. He began his studies at the elementary school in Yefe Nof. After completing eight years of study, he moved to the military boarding school of the Herzliya Gymnasium in Tel Aviv, but for family reasons he was forced to return to Jerusalem. He continued his studies at Denmark High School, moved to an external school and passed the matriculation exams. Prior to his induction into the IDF, Avraham wanted to volunteer for an elite combat unit – the paratroopers or the Golani reconnaissance unit – and finally he got what he wanted: he arrived at the Golani reconnaissance unit and was later sent to a squad commanders’ course. After the course of the course, he was promoted to the rank of corporal and was appointed as a commander in his battalion, and he underwent a sabotage and mining course and was sent to an officer’s course, On June 10, 1982, a month before he finished his officers’ course, Avraham was hit by a Syrian artillery shell and killed, and he was laid to rest at the military cemetery on Mount Herzl in Jerusalem, leaving behind his parents, three brothers and a sister. At the Ziv School in Jerusalem, a study room dedicated to the subject of the Land of Israel was written by the Minister of Defense in a letter of condolence to his family: “Deputy Abraham Pardo gave his life for his homeland. He fell on the axis of Micha in Lebanon. Was one of the cadets who excelled in the course. He believed with all his might in the way he went and boasted about the spiritual baggage he brought from his parents’ home. Was beloved by his comrades. “The commander of his unit wrote to his family:” Your son Avraham fell in battle with the Syrians and the terrorists. He fell in a difficult battle that led to the opening of the main axis to the Bekaa Valley and to the suppression of the terrorists and the Syrian army beyond the range they could hit on our northern border. Avraham was at the end of his career as a cadet, one of the best cadets in the company. Felt great pride in his family and the education he had won. They were proud that you had the privilege of raising and educating a son like Abraham, of the way he went and of the example he served. “
