Fort Lauderdale divorce attorney and commercial litigator Marcy S. Resnik, Esq., a partner with Kahn Chenkin & Resnik, P.L., and her family were recently awarded the “Guardian of Israel” award from the Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center in Miami.
Ms. Resnik, her husband Barry I. Resnik, MD, and two of their children, were recognized before an audience of 1,500 for their “outstanding leadership, dedication and commitment to the Synagogue, the community, and the State of Israel.”
Recipients of the prestigious award are visionaries who are chosen for their efforts to preserve Jewish traditions and heritage and to ensure Jewish continuity through the education of children.

“My husband and I feel humbled to have been included in this year’s recipients,” Ms. Resnik said.
