Yuval Engel

11

Yuval is a remarkable child, full of wit, humor, and vivacity. Her friends call her 'Yubi'. Yuval is a bundle of energy; she is humorous and mischievous, and it's impossible not to fall in love with her. In her free time, Yuval likes to swim, take part in the kibbutz youth movement, go on nature walks with her family, ride horses, and care for her two adorable dogs.
The Engel family moved to Kibbutz Nir Oz 12 years ago; parents Ronen (54) and Karina (51), and their three children; Tom (21), Mika (18) and Yuval (11).
Four members of the Engel family; Ronen, Karina, Mika and Yuval were kidnapped by Hamas terrorists on October 7. Tom, the firstborn, did not spend that weekend on the kibbutz. In the family’s last messages, they said they were hiding in their sealed room, aware of what was taking place on the grounds of the kibbutz.
While they were held hostage in Gaza, Yuval spent the whole time on her sister’s side, without their parents. After 30 days in Hamas captivity, the two were reunited with their mother, Karina.
Karina Engelbert, a recent cancer survivor, holds Argentine citizenship. The family has been trying to get assistance from the Argentine Embassy in Israel and through South American media.
Karina, Mika, and Yuval were released on November 27, 2023 as part of a temporary cease-fire deal, and were reunited at home with Tom.


Tragically, after 55 days of uncertainty, the family was informed that Ronen had been murdered. The IDF confirmed the death of Ronen Engel on December 1, 2023, while his body is still being held in Gaza. Ronen left behind a heart-broken family.
