Miami Beach Brothers Play Football for a Good Cause

For the second year in a row, Jared, Koby and Evan Resnick held the Quarterbacks for the Holocaust Memorial Miami Beach, which raised $14,400. Conceived last year by 15-year-old Jared as a Bar Mitzvah project, this year's event enlisted 46 young athletes and local event sponsors for a flag football tournament on Sunday, December 10 at Normandy Isle Park.

The Resnick brothers are great-grandchildren of former Miami Beach Vice Mayor Abe Resnick, z”l, a survivor of the Shoah and a founder of the Holocaust Memorial, who was instrumental in commissioning the property where the landmark was built.

Each participant in the flag football tournament paid an $18 entry fee. All proceeds were donated to the Zachor Society, which helps preserve the structure and Mission of the Holocaust Memorial. The Holocaust Memorial Miami Beach is a Committee of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation.

The Mission of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation is to mobilize human and financial resources to care for those in need, strengthen
Jewish life and advance the unity, values and shared purpose of the Jewish people in Miami, in Israel and around the world.
