El Malei Rachamim
My dear friend Noa Freudberg, Noel bat Joseph, tragically died on September 30, 2021. We met in Torah study class at Shomrei Emunah, and she became the God-given sister I never had.
A licensed social worker, Noa made many contributions to society, to her patients and to the many people whose lives she touched and saved. She was bright, talented kind and compassionate. She was Educated at Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic in Pittsburgh, Noa had great analytical skills and social justice values. She worked at University Hospital in Newark as a medical social worker. She was also in private practice for many years. Many psychiatrists would refer patients to Noa because of her skill, kindness and empathy.
Noa loved animals and her dream was to work on a farm, rescuing abused animals. She volunteered with many social action committees.
Noa was a God-given sister whom I loved very much. She was there for me when my mother was dying. I will miss her every day – her smile, her jokes and all my times with her
May the memory of Noa Freudberg be a blessing.
