For the second time this week, tens of thousands of Israelis accompanied a lone IDF soldier to his final resting place.

Some 30,000 people attended the funeral Wednesday of Max Steinberg at Mount Herzl in Jerusalem.

Steinberg, 24, grew up in Woodland Hills, a suburb of Los Angeles, and made aliya after visiting Israel on a Birthright seminar in 2012. According to the Jerusalem Post, he served as a sniper in the Golani Brigade.

At the end of his eulogy for his son, Steinberg’s father – visiting Israel for the first time – said Am Yisrael Chai, spurring the crowd to repeat the sentence through tears, and to sing Hatikva.
