Tzvi has dedicated his life to giving back first by
becoming a paramedic, then by helping paramedics reach the local community by
founding Hatzalah Chicago. Designed to save
lives, the organization has over 80 volunteers who respond to emergencies and
help people get the care they need.
Tzvi is a role model to teens in
the Chicagoland area, educating them about life-saving measures like CPR and how
to get EMT training through an educational program he developed. By forming
close relationships with schools, municipalities, and hospitals, he educates
people about saving lives and donates medical supplies to those in need.
Additionally, he serves as a police chaplain with the Oak Park Police
Department and a district advisory committee member at the 024 District Chicago
Police Department. He is also a board member at Joan Dachs Bais Yaakov-Yeshivas
Tiferes Tzvi Elementary School and a member of the Jewish Community Advisory
Group at AMITA St. Francis Hospital.
