Iconic Miami Tower Illuminates World’s Tallest Digital Israeli Flag

The rooftop crown is 700-foot-high and 300-foot-wide, making it a grand display of support.

South Florida business leaders have raised their voices in outrage in response to Hamas’s attack on Israel. An iconic Miami tower is now adding its message—in lights. Until Sunday, Oct. 15, the crown of Paramount, an iconic building in Miami, will display a digital Israeli flag, which is the world’s tallest, along with the words “solidarity” in both English and Hebrew (סוֹלִידָרִיוּת).

“The Paramount Miami Tower is sending a signal of solidarity from South Florida to the people of Israel,” says Daniel Kodsi, CEO of the Royal Palm Companies – builder of the Paramount Tower. “There is sorrow and outrage in our community, which is the third most Jewish-populated metropolitan area in America,” says Kodsi, who has family members in Israel, some of whom are being “called up” for uniformed duty. He continues, “We pray for the families of the kidnapped hostages. We grieve for the victims of this massacre. And, we demand justice.”

The building will be illuminated twice every hour, for five minutes, between 5 a.m. and 6:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. to midnight. Florida is home to the third-largest Jewish population in the U.S., with approximately 620,000 Jewish people residing in the state. Of these, an estimated 550,000 live in the three counties of Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach.

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
