Mother of three was a teacher for the blind

Elizabeth Devorah Goren Friedman, 54, was a mother of three children who had survived a serious illness and was a teacher for the blind in Jerusalem. She died on the operating table in Shaare Tzedek Hospital and was buried late at night in the Givat Shaul cemetery in Jerusalem, surrounded by hundreds of family members, friends and students. "You were a good friend and a good mother. You made sure we were all happy," her son Issachar eulogized, adding, "You have taught us that volunteering is part of a person's life." "A sinful murderer destroyed a brave life that was filled with your courage to fight back. In spite of the difficulties you encountered during your life you overcame everything with a smile on your face," Friedman's husband said during the eulogy. Friedman is also survived by a second son, Tzvi, and by a daughter, Yael.
