R’ Eli Baitelman, a young father from the Los Angeles Chabad community, passed away on Motzei Shabbos, 16 Iyar, 5783.
He was 40 years old.
Eli served for many years as a dedicated Shliach of the Rebbe in Pacific Palisades, California, and had a tremendous impact on the lives of hundreds of students, youth, campers, and their families.
Using his talents in his recent endeavors as a businessman, he proudly and joyously focused his interactions to further his Shlichus life, as he helped, inspectors, tradesmen and associates connect with their true heritage, especially through Mivtza Tefilin.
He was a loving husband and father, dedicated son, and a “go-to” man for his family, friends, fellow shluchim and balei battim. He will be remembered for his big heart and his unassuming acts of kindness.
He is survived by his wife Elka (nee Berger) and their children Avi, Henna, Sholom, Miriam, Rosie, Chana and Matti.
He is also survived by his mother, Mrs. Yocheved Baitelman – Crown Heights, and his siblings, Yechiel Baitelman – Richmond, BC Canada; Yossi Baitelman – Studio City, CA; Yochonon Baitelman – Porter Ranch, CA; Zisi Cunin – Pacific Palisades, CA; Ari Baitelman – Los Angeles, CA; Yanky Baitelman – Westwood, CA; and Sruly Baitelman – New Haven, CT.
He was pre-deceased by his father R’ Avraham Moshe Halevi (Avi) a”h Baitelman.
