Eric Eliezer Levenson Center for Hope

Eric Eliezer Levenson spent grew up in Passaic/Clifton, attending yeshiva day school and participating in and leading youth and teen groups. After a 14 year battle with depression, Eric took his own life in 2016, at the age of 28. Eric suffered in silence, and yet still managed to graduate from college with a degree in music and psychology.

In the years until his death, Eric was a direct care worker for people with developmental disabilities. He felt strongly that someone needed to be the voice for those who cannot advocate for themselves. The Levenson family has established the Eric Eliezer Center for Hope, as a program of the Jewish Family Service of Clifton-Passaic, in order to continue his legacy of caring for others. The Center is committed to ensuring that other young adults who may be suffering can readily access the support they need.

The Eric Eliezer Levenson Center for Hope is committed to ensuring that emerging young adults, ages 18-30, who are having difficulty finding themselves socially and vocationally, receive the support they need. It provides vocational and career counseling as well as other career related assistance.
