PARKLAND, FL- As the heartbreaking and painful day of February 14 approaches, we have been searching for a meaningful and comforting tribute to immortalize the 17 angels and all those who have been affected by the harrowing tragedy.

Chabad of Parkland has commissioned world renowned artist and sculptor Joel Amit from Israel to create a one of a kind MSD Eagles Nesher Memorial. It will be proudly mounted in the lobby of the Michael & Betsy Brauser Chabad of Parkland Center for Jewish Life.

Joel has sculpted 3320 Eagles representing every Marjory Stoneman Douglas student who was affected by February 14. These eagles form the shape of 17 Eagles that are soaring to heaven through a heart.

This masterpiece will be completed and unveiled by Joel in a special ceremony on Thursday, February 13, 2020, on the eve of the second anniversary.
