Michael Levin grew up in Holland, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Michael was raised in a Jewish home, attending Camp Ramah, Gratz College, USY High, and NATIV. Since he was a child he had a very strong love for his homeland, Israel.
After Michael made aliyah (moved to Israel) three years ago, he was able to achieve his lifelong dream of joining the Israeli Defense Forces. He served in an elite paratrooper unit, #890, and made the ultimate sacrifice defending Israel during combat. He fell in battle in Lebanon on August 1, 2006. He was 22 years-old.
A tribute fund bearing his name is currently being established to provide funding for specific units serving within the IDF. In honor of Michael, donations can be made to the Michael Levin Memorial Fund for Israel. Please make checks payable to "FJC" and be sure to write in the memo line "Michael Levin Memorial Fund for Israel." Please mail checks to:
