Dr. Josef Eckstein found out that on the 20th Maccabiah flag appears his mother's photo, Zelda Shuliak, who participated in the 2nd Maccabiah Games in 1935.
The medals, which she was awarded, and that he played with as a child, have been donated to the Maccabi Museum. Until today Yosef keeps his mother's running shoes.
Zelda Shuliak photo is part of the new branding book for Maccabiah 2017 - combining old and new. We are pleased and excited to honor Zelda and her son Josef
