is dedicated to

As an Israeli start-up, we felt that we had a moral obligation to honor the soldiers who sacrificed their lives in the "Swords of Iron" war. We chose to dedicate our startup in memory of this specific fallen, Lavi Buchnick, since he is our main investor's nephew and cousin of our Chief Operating Officer.

Moshav Paduim

Circumstances of death:

Fell in the battle of Kisufim

Lavi was a child who loved the nature. He grew up in Moshav Peduim in the south of Israel. He is mostly known for his love of open fields and open spaces.
In his childhood, he was a very good student who was surrounded by friends all the time.
After graduation (pre-army service) he volunteered in the community for a year. As soon as he enlisted in the paratrooper corps, he excelled in training, and completed a parachuting course and a commander's course.
On the early morning of the 7th of October 2023, Hamas opened a war against Israel. Lavi with his combat squad were launched to Kissufim. There he fought bravely for hours against the terrorists to save innocent civilians and his friends' lives.
Despite all the difficulties, He fought with all his power and strength against the terrorists from 9:00 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. Sadly, on this Saturday, he was killed during the battle and died.
Lavi was a patriot IDF fighter who lost his life too early. He was only 20 years old.
The motive and the sentence he repeated as a mantra was "To be an Israeli means to give your all to your country and your nation. And if you have to die, then for the sanctification of God and for defense your homeland."
