Remembering a Good Friend

Remembering a Good Friend

No comments

For more than a few decades, Herb Friedman has been a dear friend of the Dreskins, of The Jonah Maccabee Foundation, and of Woodlands Community Temple’s Jonah Maccabee Fund. He supported Billy as a rabbi, the many projects of the Foundation, and (most especially) the music we brought to Woodlands in support of Jonah’s fund there.

Herb died this weekend.

But what a life he lived. Devoted to family, friends and community, Herb made a real difference in this world. So many people have benefitted from his life and work that we would never be able to list them all here. Suffice it to say, we are incredibly grateful he was here and that we were lucky enough to know and love him.

In Judaism, we use the expression, “Zecher tzadik livracha … may his memory be for a blessing.” No question here. Herb was a blessing and always will be a blessing.

Here’s a list of folks who’ve contributed to The Jonah Maccabee Foundation in Herb’s memory:

Alexa Kaner

Susan Cicelsky, retired RCSD

Joyce and Edward Kelley … thinking of your father who has departed and yet his heart, love and teachings still live on in you

We’re grateful to you all.

Ellen, Billy, Katie and Aiden Dreskin
