This important campaign will help fund another year of the activities of Aaron's Culinary Experiences established in loving memory of Aaron Friedman. The number 18 is Chai life in Jewish tradition. Three times 18 represents the strength of life. Aaron's eternal soul lives on through the acts of goodness and kindness that are performed on his behalf.

Message from David and Gail Friedman

Dear Friends,

Tuesday, November 6th, the 28th day of Cheshvan on the Jewish calendar, we mark the second anniversary of the tragic passing of our dear son Aaron. Our family marks this day with special prayers, lighting a candle, and performing acts of kindness and charity in his beloved memory.

Exactly one year ago on the first anniversary, we partnered with Chabad of Northridge and established Aaron's Culinary Experiences in our son's honor. As you may know, Aaron was a professionally trained chef and he absolutely loved cooking and sharing his passion about food with others.

Aaron's Culinary Experiences enables children, teens, adults, and seniors to experience our faith traditions through the joys of cooking. This program welcomes individuals of all faiths, all backgrounds and all ages. We were privileged last year to underwrite the first full year of activities of Aaron's Culinary Experiences and we are absolutely thrilled with the results of our investment in this wonderful program. In the first year alone, more than 1,000 children, teens, adults, and seniors participated in a wide variety of engaging culinary programs and hands-on educational experiences.

As we mark the second anniversary, we are launching a campaign to secure additional funds to supplement our family’s ongoing support for the second year of Aaron's Culinary Experiences, which will allow this program to grow and deepen its connection to the community.

We are turning to you, our dear friends, family and acquaintances, to invite you to join us by making a gift to this innovative educational program. Your tax-deductible contribution in any amount will help us extend the reach of Aaron’s Culinary Experiences to an even greater number of children and adults who will learn the joy of cooking, and how celebrating our traditions through food brings families, friends and neighbors, together in a uniquely meaningful and memorable way.

We hope to meet our 2018 campaign goal by November 28th, the second anniversary of Aaron's passing on the secular calendar. May we count on your support? We thank you in advance from the bottom of our hearts for your kindness, love, and friendship, and for joining us in extending the blessed memory and loving soul of our dear son.

May we all have good health and only happy occasions to share together in the future.

With warmest regards,

Gail & David Friedman
