Police released the names of the four Israelis murdered in the gruesome terrorist shooting in central Tel Aviv on Thursday, the morning after the attack.
The four lives taken in the shooting at Tel Aviv’s Sarona Market on Wednesday night were Ido Ben Ari, 42, Ilana Naveh, 39, Michael Feige, 58, and Mila Mishaev, 32.
Ido Ben Ari, an executive at Coca-Cola’s Israeli headquarters, lived in Ramat Gan, and left behind two children, a wife, parents, and three siblings.

His wife and children were with him at the Max Brenner restaurant where the attack took place. His wife was taken in serious condition to Ichilov Hospital, where she underwent surgery.
She was listed in moderate condition as of Thursday. Ben Ari served in the elite Sayeret Matkal unit in the IDF, won a presidential award for his service in the reserves, and was an active volunteer for the emergency response organization ZAKA.
Ben Ari was buried Thursday evening in Yavne.
Dr. Michael Feige, of Midreshet Ben-Gurion, was the head of Ben-Gurion University’s Israel Studies program, and a sociologist and anthropologist specializing in Israeli society, collective memory and political myth.
In 2010 he won the Association for Israel Studies’ Shapira Prize for best Israel Studies book, for his research comparing Peace Now and Gush Emunim. He left behind a wife and two children.

Prof. Oren Yiftachel, head of the Multidisciplinary Studies Department at Ben-Gurion University, said Feige “was an outstanding person, a charming person and a great researcher. He was not political, though he researched political subjects…He was a very important researcher who dealt with sensitive subjects and found interesting insights. He was one of the best, open and willing to listen...This is a great loss for our university.”
Mila Mishaev grew up in Rishon Lezion, and most recently lived in Ashkelon.
She left behind her parents and three siblings, who were visited yesterday by social services case workers. Ashkelon Mayor Itamar Shimonis said the municipality is in touch with the family, and will help them in any way possible.
Ilana Naveh of Tel Aviv left behind four daughters. Her funeral took place Thursday in the Yarkonim cemetery.
