Bar-Or, the eldest of three brothers and the son of Noa and Kobi Bar-Or, was also a gifted and versatile music composer, who had already composed several significant music pieces at a very tender age. He was described by his mentor, Prof. Michael Wolpe, as an “extraordinary talent, one in a generation. He was on the way to becoming one of the most important Israeli composers.”

At the age of 18, Bar-Or’s composition “Heartbeat rhythm” was performed by the Israel Chamber Orchestra during a concert entitled “Sounds in the Desert.”

Bar-Or had completed his music studies in school and had done a year of national service before joining his combat unit in the Nahal brigade of the IDF.

May his blood be avenged.
