Born and raised in the United States near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Michael Levin (z"l) grew up in a traditional, loving Jewish home. At the young age of sixteen, Michael had decided that he wanted to move to Israel and join a front-line combat unit in the Israeli Defense Forces. That dream was fulfilled when he made Aliyah in 2003 and joined the elite paratrooper unit #890. On August 1, 2006, Michael was killed in combat at Aita-Al-Shaab in Lebanon.

This is presented through the music of Naomi Shemer, the songs of Rachel, the poems of Shaul Tchernokovsky, magnificent film footage of Israel, a message from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the words of Michael's family, friends and those who ...
