Known for his engaging smile and a demeanor that brought joy and positivity to any setting, Neria was beloved for his lively spirit and unique sense of humor. His presence invariably created a warm and welcoming atmosphere, enhanced by his singing voice and positive energy.

On October 7th, in a sudden and violent attack at the Nativ HaAsara area, Neria demonstrated extraordinary heroism that would define his legacy. During an episode of extreme danger and chaos as the base came under surprise attack, Neria stood out for his composure and leadership.

His bravery and selflessness in those harrowing moments preserved many lives and left a profound impact on his comrades and all who knew of his valor.
