Know that time, enemies, the wind and the water
Will not erase you
You will continue, made up of letters
That is not a little
Something, after all, will remain of you.

A version of this article appears in print on Feb. 2, 2018, Section A, Page 20 of the New York edition with the headline: Haim Gouri, Writer and Poetic Voice For New State of Israel, Is Dead at 94.

The handwriting of a person is unique and there is no other like it. It reflects something of their personality, something of them. Creating a font in their name will leave a mark of them in our world.

The Ot.Hayim Initiative was born out of the pain, sorrow, and mourning that we all share following the murderous terrorist attack on Israel.

Designers create fonts from the handwriting of the victims and fallen soldiers of the Iron Swords War on October 7, 2023, in collaboration with the bereaved families, to commemorate the memory of their loved ones.

  • All partners in the Initiative do so on a volunteer basis.
  • The fonts are named after the person being commemorated, and are published under that name.
  • All fonts will be available for download on the Initiative's website, alongside a photo of the original handwriting of the person being commemorated, their photo, and their life story.
  • The fonts will be available for free use on any computer and in any home, for anyone who wishes to use them: families, students, teachers, designers, etc. In this way, we pray that something of the personality and uniqueness of our loved ones will be preserved and shine into the world.
