Lichter, Simcha (Simchala)


An only son of his parents Yehuda and Zissel. He was born on January 16, 1947 in the city of Ulm in Germany. The family immigrated to Israel in 1949. Simcha studied and completed his studies at the Shahal Elementary School and the Bar-Ilan High School in Netanya. He belonged to the Bnei Akiva youth movement. Was an outstanding student even though, in addition to his studies, he worked at night to help support the family, since his sick father could not bear the burden. He was humble and cautious in respect of others; He observes a religious obligation and observes the mitzvot between man and place as he would have done with the mitzvot of Shinn. He liked to help his friend in everything when necessary and because of the pleasing qualities his friends and acquaintances loved him. Was drafted into the IDF in August 1965. He planned to study mathematics and physics at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem after completing his regular service, but before completing his military service, the Six-Day War broke out and took part in the battles for the liberation of Jerusalem. And when his convoy, carrying water, fuel, food and ammunition, climbed a minefield in the Golan Heights, the machine he was traveling in crashed and he was seriously wounded and died on the hospital on Wednesday, Sivan 5727 (June 11, 1967). He was laid to rest in the military cemetery in Nahariya. The “Bnei Akiva” Yeshiva in Netanya dedicated a second order to his memory. In a booklet on behalf of the Netanya municipality, “the eternal glory of the sons of Netanya who fell on their guard” was immortalized. His memory was included in the publications of the high schools “Shachal” and “Bar-Ilan” in Netanya, and in “Eli Ilan”, the student newspaper in Netanya.
