The Neutra family’s world was shattered when their 21-year-old son, Omer Neutra, went missing amidst the escalating Israel-Gaza conflict.

Who is Omer Neutra?

Omer Neutra, hailing from Long Island, was known for his athletic prowess, love for the New York Knicks, and his vibrant social circle, according to his doting parents.

Having spent a gap year in Israel in 2020, where he dedicated himself to assisting children with special needs, Omer later joined the Israeli military. His last communication with his family, mentioning the apparent calm on the Gaza border, was swiftly followed by a worrying silence that continues to grip the Neutra family.

According to Omer’s mother, Orna Neutra, the family strongly suspects that he was abducted by Hamas. Described as someone passionate about peace-building, Omer had plans to return to Long Island for college, eagerly anticipating a future that has now been abruptly overshadowed by uncertainty and concern.

In the midst of the ongoing conflict, the Neutra family’s plea remains resolute: the safe return of their beloved son, Omer, whose disappearance has left a void in the lives of those who cherish him dearly.
