The twelfth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks is coming up in two short weeks – and with it will come a memorial service for Danny Levi, an Israeli-born firefighter who lost his life due to health damage sustained as he tried save victims at the World Trade Center. Danny’s brother, Tzahi Levi,a firefighter in Rishon Lezion, is organizing a memorial service for his brother on the first anniversary of his death at age 54.
Tzachi Levi said that his brother had lived in the New York area. A firefighter turned air conditioning installer, Danny Levi was head of the volunteer fire department in a Long Island suburb. When terrorists crashed planes into the World Trade Center, Levi, like thousands of other rescue workers, rushed to Ground Zero to try and help out.
