According to his close friends Max Steinberg was a very special young man. He shined in his honesty, his love for others and his responsibilities for man and country; his smile was his brand name.
Last night, to a house full, at the Saban Theatre, in Los Angeles, the community held a memorial service for Max, who made the ultimate sacrifice to defend the State of Israel when fighting in Gaza. Max was killed in the Solid-Rock-Protective Edge War.
Max was an American Jewish young man who saw his calling to serve in the IDF in the elite Golani Brigade. He was a marksman and exceptionally good soldier. From the stories his friends, his sister Paige, his brother Jake and his parents Evelyn (Evie) and Stuart told through-out the night I got to know much about Max. I almost feel I know him. We have lost a good young man, we have lost a hero.
I send Max a prayer and ask Max to continue watching over us from the heavens. May Max’s soul be blessed for eternity.
