Torah scroll dedicated in honor of lone soldier who fell in Gaza last summer

A year after lone soldier St.- Sgt. Max Steinberg’s death, his family and friends gathered again in the country Max fell in love with – this time to commemorate his service and sacrifice to the State of Israel with the dedication of a Torah scroll.

On Sunday afternoon at the Aish Hatorah Center overlooking the Western Wall, Chief Rabbi David Lau, joined by Max’s family, penned the final words of a Torah scroll written in honor of the lone soldier.

The Los Angeles native was 24 years old when he was killed last summer in Operation Protective Edge while he was serving as a sharpshooter in the Golani Brigade’s 13th battalion.
