Welcome to the Tribe
of Nova Foundation

The Tribe of Nova Foundation is an Israeli non-profit organization initiated right after the atrocities on October 7th, by the producers of the Super Nova festival. The Tribe of Nova Foundation was formed to provide assistance for those impacted by the events. This includes financial aid, social integration, mental and occupational therapies for the survivors and their families as well as the abductees who are still in Gaza. In addition, we also coordinate commemorations in memory of the members of 'Nova tribe' community who did not survive. Donations go to commemorate the murdered and to support the bereaved families and the survivors of the festival.

Who Are We?


On 7 October 2023, Simchat Torah, young adults came together to celebrate but found themselves in a war zone, experiencing shock and horror as the terror group Hamas launched a surprise attack on Israel from the Gaza Strip. As part of the onslaught, 364 people were murdered, 40 kidnapped (3 released thus far) and hundreds wounded. This mass killing constituted the largest massacre of Israeli civilians. Sadly, 3,882 Super Nova Festival attendees, have endured deep trauma, and all the survivors will carry the atrocities they witnessed with them throughout their lives. The festival, attended mainly by 20–40-year-olds, from 36 countries around the world, was put together under the tagline of “friends, love and infinite freedom.” 


On the day following the tragic events of the dark Saturday, all the organizers of the Nova event decided to take action and start the journey of healing the victims of the Nova community. Since October 8th, much has been achieved, learned, and created a place that the survivors can see as a safe space to call home to regain their strength, and cope with the trauma together.
