Orit Ozerov, a Foreign Ministry employee, was was born in 1974, and grew up in Jerusalem. Orit joined the Foreign Ministry about four years ago, and worked as an office manager while studying for her Master's degree.

Her colleagues at work describe her as always having a smile on her face, possessing a contagious cheerfulness, and an aura of friendliness which affected everyone around her. Her sense of humor and kindness were matched only by her grace, and her charming childlike features.

May God bless her memory. I copy Orit's full story below.

She fulfilled her tasks with great devotion, loyalty and pleasantness, generating a very positive influence on all of her colleagues.
