The Knesset and Defense Ministry will honor the memory of American-born IDF soldier Michael Levin in its Remembrance Day for the Fallen of Israel’s Wars ceremony on Sunday night.

Short documentary videos will be combined with songs and poetry readings about the fallen.

Levin immigrated to Israel from Philadelphia in 2002 and joined the Paratroop Brigade. He fought in the Second Lebanon War, cutting short a vacation to the US to rejoin his comrades.

On August 21, 2006, a Hezbollah sniper killed Levin in the southern Lebanese village of Ayta a-Shayeb. He was 21 years old.
