June 18, 2019: Hi all - we are closed for donations at this time. If the needs change, we'll re-open and send out an update. For now, please follow for  medical and other updates through https://nathanielsoldier.wixsite.com/nathanielsoldier/home/ and continue to pray for Netanel -  Netanel Ilan ben Shayna Tzipora. Thank you so much for your donations and support. 

UPDATE 2/19/19: Netanel is out of the ICU! He will be needing 24/7 care, rehab, and therapy. The GoFundMe funds will be used to cover a lot of this care.

Our friend, IDF soldier Netanel Felber, was critically injured in a terrorist attack on December 13, 2018. His family remains at his bedside, and is currently unable to return to work. Please help them meet their daily and monthly expenses while he is hospitalized by donating to the Felber Family Fund.    

Joe and Judi Felber moved to Israel 12 years ago with their 3 children. All 3 have served in the Israel Defense Forces. Nathaniel (Netanel) is 21 and currently serving a military assignment in the West Bank protecting civilians. While on duty, he was shot in the head during an act of terrorism. The funds we are raising will go towards paying the Felber's living expenses while they are not able to work and remain at his bedside. Expenses such as: rent, utilities, food, missed income, transportation to and from Jerusalem to their home, as well as transportation costs for family to visit from the USA to help.

Our team is made up of a few families that were neighbors with the Felber's in White Oak, Maryland. We have remained friends throughout several moves. We are working with Judi's sister Barb Abramson Seiden to arrange for the Felber's needs and to give them the funds.

Hello friends -

Our GoFundMe is now coming to a close. We cannot begin to thank all of you enough for your donation (for some more than one!).

We are keeping a close watch on next steps. You can keep following along by subscribing to the updates site: https://nathanielsoldier.wixsite.com/nathanielsoldier

The latest updates are that they are trying to schedule the cranioplasty (the surgery to replace his skull). The Felbers were also filmed for a news story: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iVceHskVNXo
.
We had a global tefillah (prayer) for Netanel on his Hebrew birthday. Here is the video of his IDF unit singing to him after the prayer and birthday celebration: https://www.facebook.com/dov.lipman/videos/2258394777742329/

Again, thank you all for your incredible kindness in donating to Netanel’s recovery. We ask that you please continue to keep him in your prayers: Netanel Ilan ben Shayna Tzipora.

Thank you,

Thank you so so much to all of you who have donated so far. We cannot tell you how much we appreciate the support.

Bit of an update for those who are not on the Caring Bridge Site:

He's doing relatively well all things considered. Today he had a procedure to put a PEG tube in which will be his new source of nutrition/food. He's also now breathing a bit without the ventilator. While he still need's the oxygen supply, he is breathing more and more on his own.

We also now know that when he's out of the ICU (hopefully soon), he'll need round the clock care. In addition to the original intention, a portion of the the money we've raised will go to paying for his post ICU care.

Please also continue to daven/learn if that's your thing. Netanel Ilan ben Shayna Tzipora.

Thank you again.
