(Courtesy of Yeshiva World News) 

The Passaic Jewish community was in shock upon hearing of the petira of Dr. Elliott Samet, z”l. He was in his 60s.

Dr. Samet was one of the leading pediatricians for the Jewish community in Passaic for decades. He was a prominent board-certified pediatrician in the community, who was in practice for around 38 years.

In addition to being an incredibly dedicated doctor, Dr. Samet was a brilliant talmid chacham and a tremendous ba’al tzedaka. His patients were always treated like his own children. So much so, that there was always a long line of kids and their parents at his house to show him and his wife their Purim costumes. He proudly hung all of the photos in his office.

He was a founding board member of Passaic Hatzolah.

Hundreds of families and thousands of patients are mourning the tremendous loss of yet another victim of the COVID-19 pandemic.

About Dr. Elliot Samet, z”l, by Yitsy Kleinman and family:

You were always there for your patients at all times of the day. From the simplest to the most complicated cases, you would never rest. You were there 1000 percent of the way to make sure the children of the Passaic/Clifton community were cared for.

Your legendary smile, your beautiful voice and your sense of humor kept everyone smiling.

Your encouraging words when times were hard always brought a sense of calm to your patients. You always stressed safety, while giving your patients the encouragement for the jobs they were doing as parents.

We will never forget the lines in your home office—of all the people going through hard times. Your financial help to countless people was done quietly, never requesting acknowledgement.

You were a true tzaddik in every form.

May you be a meilitz yashar for klal Yisrael and your gansa mishpacha.
