Ronen Fleischmann Memorial Fund
“Ronen” is a Hebrew name derived from the word “joy.” That simple word aptly describes the beautiful, sensitive, thoughtful boy who died by suicide at the age of 15.
Ronen had a joy for life and took joy in helping others. Whether it was helping kids with disabilities at camp, being a buddy to incoming students at his school or raising money for cancer research, he gave unconditionally. However, Ronen, who so eagerly reached out to others, could not ask for help himself. He kept his experience with depression hidden.
Eli Fleischmann and Annette Duvdevani’s support of Kids Help Phone, in memory of their son, recognizes that youth often need to reach out, but don’t know where to turn. By supporting us as we expand our reach, the Fleischmanns aim to provide care to others who may need help.
We thank the Fleischmanns and all who contribute to the Ronen Fleischmann Memorial Fund.
