The sudden, tragic and untimely passing of R' Eliyahu Matisyahu (Eli) Friedman OBM on the morning of April 17, 2018 a mere few days after the birth of his daughter Malyah Leah and less than a year since his marriage to Rivka (nee Orenstein) has left the young family without any means to support themselves.
Elias (Eli) was a beloved figure in the Jewish paramedic circles of Manhattan, where he served as Critical Care Paramedic with SeniorCare, and volunteered with Hatzalah of the Upper West Side (UWS).
A $500,000 campaign was launched to ensure that his wife Rivka and their young daughter Malyah Leah should be taken care of. Please donate generously!
