Friedman is an avid Twitter user, and often features his wife in his tweets. She and Friedman's daughter Aliza, who made aliyah in 2017, baked hundreds of challahs after Hurricane Harvey to raise funds for construction efforts. Last August, the couple traveled to Sderot to bring homemade cupcakes to children experiencing post-traumatic stress disorder.

He has also often taken to the social media site to express condolences to the families of terror attacks. After the murder of a man from the settlement of Har Bracha, Friedman wrote that 20 years prior, he had donated an ambulance to the community. He has similarly sent comforting sentiments to the families of the Israelis killed in attacks in Halamish, Havat Gilad, Har Adar, and several other cities and settlements.
