Zionsville, IN (FOX19) -
A community came together Tuesday night to pray for a local boy struck by lightning over the weekend.
Ethan Kadish, 12, of Loveland, was one of three injured when lightning struck at the Goldman-Union Camp Institute near Indianapolis.
Early Wednesday morning, he left a children's hospital in Indianapolis to come back to Cincinnati via a medical transport plane. He will now be treated at Cincinnati Children's Hospital.
The other two children injured in the incident have since been released from the hospital and are at home with their families.
Through songs, prayers and well-wishes, congregants at the Rockdale Temple are hoping for a full recovery or Ethan.
"Your presence and your prayers have meant more to the Kadish family than you can possibly know," said Rabbi Sigma "Sissy" Coran, of Rockdale Temple.
Ethan was hit by lightning while playing ultimate Frisbee with other campers. He was one of three injured. The other two were a boy and girl, both nine years old.
"The circumstances of his injuries should not be really why we're here, but his personhood, his humanity, and the boy, the young man he is becoming," added Coran.
The support to help Ethan recover isn't just coming from the Rockdale Temple, or the camp, or even Cincinnati. It's coming from all over the world.
"I want you to understand and know that across North America, across the world, there's the embrace that we all hope Ethan and his family feel," said Rabbi Steven Mills of the Union for Reform Judaism.
Ethan's family has described him as a team player, not just in sports, but with the doctors and nurses taking care of him.
"He recently hit two home runs in one game, and we hope that he is in the process of hitting a few more along the way," said Coran at the prayer service.
Mills also read some comments from the camp's director, Rabbi Mark Covitz. He also sent along his well-wishes and prayers.
The Kadish family was not in attendance, as they were still at the hospital in Indianapolis. They watched the service through a live stream on the Internet.
The Kadish family has also issued this statement:
We want to express our appreciation for everyone's support and prayers. We cannot begin to describe the gratitude we feel for the swift response of the camp counselors and staff members of Goldman Union Camp Institute. Their extensive training and the camp's preparedness allowed them to be lifesavers when the urgent need arose.
At this time, Ethan is receiving the best medical care available and responding appropriately. Words aren't sufficient to communicate our appreciation to the medical caregivers who have been involved in our son's care and treatment.
The families affected are establishing the Miracle Kids Medical and Rescue Fund at Goldman Union Camp Institute to provide medical equipment and supplies to the camp so that it can continue to have world-class assets onsite to keep the campers safe at all times.
Your continued thoughts and prayers are welcomed and needed for our son's recovery.
We also offer our own thoughts and prayers for the complete healing of the two other campers affected by this tragic incident.
We ask for privacy as we focus on Ethan's care and the needs of our other children.
