The Lakewood community – and the world beyond its borders – was shattered by the unfathomable loss of Eli and Raizy Neydavoud. A tragic accident claimed the lives of these two extraordinary people as well as that of their unborn first child, cutting a shared bright future devastatingly short.
Eli and Raizy’s time in this world was sorrowfully short, but their impact on everyone who knew them was immense. The pair were known for their ever-present smiles and exuberant demeanors, during happy times and challenging times alike; their kindness and consideration for others was legendary, matched only by their fervent love for Torah. This crushing loss leaves a gaping void where two generous, genuine personalities filled every space they entered with cheer and positivity.
Their families, left reeling in the aftermath, are determined to create light, healing, and meaning, a fitting legacy for a most beloved couple. The child care center at Chai Lifeline will bear Eli and Raizy’s names, perpetuating their signature joy and radiance. The child care center is designed to bring comfort and peace of mind to countless families blessed with young children, earning untold merit for the just-budding Neydavoud family.
The child care center will serve as a steady, reliable drop-off point for families dealing with serious illness or crisis. Parents facing an urgent crisis – will never need to scramble for appropriate, professional childcare for their babies and toddlers. These young children are showered with love and care while their parents tend to the family’s medical needs with confidence and calm, secure in the knowledge that their little ones are in excellent hands.
With much appreciation the Rothenberg and Neydavoud families.
