Noy Leyb (@noybeyleyb)

Noy Leyb, a Canadian-born entrepreneur, made a significant choice: he left behind his tech startup job in New York to serve in the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) as a paratrooper reservist. His journey took him to the front lines in Gaza, where he documented his experiences through photos and videos. With 25,000 Instagram followers, Leyb became a Gaza war influencer. Leyb’s unit, a commando combat unit, actively engaged in targeted attacks. He vividly described moments of combat and close calls with death. The silence of war, punctuated by intense action, left a profound impact on him.

Before his military service, Leyb was a Co-Founder & COO at BachPlace, an online planning tool and marketplace for bachelorette party planners. His diverse work experience includes roles as a Sales Manager and Marketing Manager in different industries.

Leyb expressed surprise at the hatred he encountered in Gaza, including finding posters of terrorists in children’s bedrooms.
