Seinen Hauptsitz hatte der Rabbi Friedmann in der Kleinstadt Bojan (ca. 20 km östlich von Czernowitz), wo sein Vater Isak Friedmann (gestorben 1917) und er seit Ende des 19. Jh. die chassidischen Rabbiner-Dynastie aus Sadagora fortsetzten.
Zwei Zeitzeugen erinnert sich:
„It [Bojaner Rebbe's Shul] is close to the other building where he lived, at the corner of Dreifaltigkeitsgasse and verlängerte Albertinengasse, whereas the entrance to the Schul was on the verlängerte Albertinengasse. Until April 1940, when we left for Palestine, I went to pray "davenen" in that Schul in the weekdays. It was the closest Schul to our house in Balschgasse 7.“ Paul Heger, 27.

„I used to come to the Rebbe's Schul every Friday night with my father and brother, my uncle Moshe Landau, and also on Saturdays a.m., holy days, as well as for the Rebbe's Tisch (it used to be quite a celebration - 1933-1940). In hindsight, it was an exciting atmosphere. I still remember the "Gabayim", Hazanim, Pinye (Spector) "der Hazen", who eventually conducted the services and the choir at the the well-known Choir Schul. I was a member of the Choir (soprano).“ Avraham Kogan, 27. November 2016 (Quelle: czernowitz.ephes.com)
