Max Steinberg and Nissim Sean Carmeli grew up in America and had a passion for Israel.

Their love of Israel led both to join the Israel Defense Forces and fight against Hamas in Gaza Strip, where they were killed on Sunday.


Nissim Sean Carmeli was a Lone Soldier – an American who threw his fate in with the people of Israel and came to serve in the IDF.

He loved Maccabi Haifa and when news of his death broke, the team called for people to come to his funeral, to honor this brave young man who chose to be Israeli with all his heart, with all his soul, with all his might.

20,000 people came out to honor his sacrifice today in Israel.
