Saturday morning, October 7, 2023, will forever be etched in the history of Kibbutz Mefalsim as the most challenging morning the Kibbutz has ever faced. However, it was also a morning marked by courage, heroism, and miracles. At 06:30 in the morning, our day began with the jarring sound of alarms and explosions. Many families had spent the night at a community campsite in the olive grove, a peaceful interlude that was abruptly interrupted that morning. Swiftly, they jumped into their vehicles and raced back to their homes, navigating through falling Qassems and the widespread destruction. Had they delayed by just another 10 minutes, they might have fallen victim to the murderous terrorists who were en route to the kibbutz.
