Fund for Yonah Goldman

A website has been set up by the family of Yonah Goldman, a'h, at

Yonah is my friend who was tragically killed in a car accident a couple of weeks ago in Israel, moments after committing his final act of chesed: picking up a woman who needed a ride out of the pouring rain and dropping her off at a covered gas station on the side of the highway. He left behind a wife, Dina, and a son, Benyamin. The website has information regarding the fund that was set up in his memory, and his parents' shul in Baltimore, Shomrei Emunah, has helped greatly and one can contribute to a fund they've created as well. Here is the information:

Yonah Goldman Benefit Fund:

A fund has been created to assist Yonah's wife and son with everyday living expenses. Unfortunately, the fund is not tax deductible. However, ma'aser money can likely be donated. Anyone who would like to make a contribution can send it to:

Yonah Goldman Benefit Fund

Keren Moreshet Yonah:

An additional fund has been set up through Congregation Shomrei Emunah in Baltimore, called "Keren Moreshet Yonah."

Checks can be made payable to the Shomrei Emunah Tzedakah Fund with "Moreshet Yonah" indicated on the memo line.

Donations can be sent to the shul's office at:

Credit Card donations will also be accepted through the shul's office by calling (410) 358-8604.
