Giving Back to the Community
Through his work with Jewish Community Services (“JCS”), Michael has volunteered to deliver food to and spend time with homebound senior citizens in Miami. In addition, he has chaired an annual “Miami Heat Watch Party” to raise money for JCS’s services. In 2015, the event raised over $3,000 to purchase microwaves for local, homebound senior citizens that rely on JCS’s “Meals on Wheels” program. In 2016, the event raised over $6,000 to benefit the homeless. Michael and his wife Sari also co-chaired a JCS fundraiser which raised over $20,000 to send the children of victims of domestic violence to summer camp.
Michael also volunteers with Dade Legal Aid’s “Put Something Back” Pro Bono Project, serving as a Guardian Ad Litem. In that capacity, he interviews families, teachers, and witnesses, and provides reports and testimony to the Court in order to advance the best interest of children involved in domestic disputes.
