Aharon, son of Yephet and Miriam, was born on August 1927 in the remote village of Hotsan, Yemen. His father was a traveling merchant selling groceries, while his mother was a dressmaker. He lost his father when he was only six. His mother continued his father’s business, wandering from village to village. When she would return, Aharon helped in the store thus helping to support the family. Customary to Yemenite Jewish tradition, Aharon studied from the age of five with a “Mori” (a children’s tutor).
When he was 15, his mother decided to make aliya. After many adventures they reached Aden. They resided for about eighteen months at a refugee camp. Aharon served as the camp guard.
In 1942 Aharon made aliya with the Youth Aliya and settled at Marmorek village, near Rehovot. His older brothers who had immigrated before him, resided there. He experienced severe absorption difficulties and unemployment. Aharon worked in the orchards and later, at the Beit-Naballa British camp. He served for a year as a Jewish settlement policeman up north. After returning home he assisted his mother at her store.
He joined Lehi in 1943, taking part in various operations. He was active mainly in the central region and Rehovot, and specialized in demolition.
When Lehi was integrated in the IDF Aharon enlisted and was assigned to Company A of Commando Battalion 89 of the 8th Brigade. He fought with his comrades in Operation Danny at Kola, Tira, Beit-Naballa and Lod.
He deployed with his battalion to the Southern Front and there he fell during the battle which took place at the village of Kartiya, on July 17 1948. Kartiya was taken but he did not live to see this victory.
Aharon was laid to rest at the Rehovot Cemetery.
