Dovid Berg, a person known to assist others in any way he could, passed away in April during Passover after a battle with COVID-19 that affected his existing health concerns.

Soft-spoken and kind, he always tried to see the best in others and was beloved by all who knew him.

When something in the synagogue or community needed to be taken care of, Berg could be counted upon to take it on his own shoulders. He looked after those in poor financial situations, helping them with food and other needs. He found jobs for some community members and matches for others, looking for them to meet compatible Jewish men and women.

He was also a musician, playing different instruments and composing songs.

Berg had undergone the challenges of a kidney transplant and dialysis, and still maintained his happy demeanor throughout the ordeal.

A video was made after his passing with many community members honoring him and sharing their many memories of the good he strived for on a daily basis. He is survived by his wife, Chavi, and their six children.
