Schwartz, from nearby Sharon, Mass., was a lifelong Patriots fan and was mentioned by name on the board and over the PA while the team honored the young man and 21 other victims of terror attacks in Israel.
“This is such a fitting tribute to Ezra and is so meaningful to his family and friends,” Dov Lipman, who wrote to Pats owner Robert Kraft about honoring Ezra, told The Times of Israel. “Mr. Kraft is a first class human being who does what is right and just. His support for Israel during these tough times has been unwavering and a pillar of strength for all of us. I am usually a Washington Redskins fan but tonight -- and possibly from now on -- we are all Patriots. Let’s go Pats!”
