This field, located in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Flatlands, honors veteran and local civil leader Jacob Joffe (1925-1962).

Born in Palestine, Jacob Joffe left his homeland to fight with the Jewish Brigade of the British Army during World War II (1939-1945). After the War, he returned to his home to fight as an officer in the Israeli Army for the nation’s independence. In March 1950 during the war, Joffe met Natalie Aronow. After a month of courtship, they married. Three months later the couple immigrated to the United States, took up residence at 1142 57th Street in Brooklyn and founded the civic association, Futurama.
