    1. It is with great shock that we heard of the Rabbis passing. My husband and I always tried to make time to listen to Rabbi Gordon’s daily class on the internet. the Rabbi always put a joyful touch on the teachings of the parshah.

    2. What sad news. Listening to Rabbi Gordon’s Chumash classes was such a breakthrough for me. Transitioning from being a single girl to being married with small kids. Keeping up with Chitas was ( and still is) a challenge. I often listen to Rabbi Gordon’s Chumash, and Tanya classes while doing things around the house. I love his jokes, upbeat attitude and way of making things so clear.

      This is so sad.

      So sad
    3. I didn’t realize he wasn’t well, just recently emailed him to ask him to teach a series on heichaltzu.

      I love his daily Chumash and Tanya classes.

      what a big loss.

    4. I learn chitas because of his shiurim.
      I was waiting for new classes.
      He will be so missed.
      He will really live on till.Moshiach comes through his amazing contribution to us all.

      What a Lost
    5. I never met you- but you are my teacher.
      I never met you- but you motivated and inspired me.
      I never met you- and I feel like I know you!
      Even though I live overseas,
      I am a student of yours through the classes you shared on Chabad.org
      Even though I am a Shlucha, you made me a Baalas Teshuva.
      This news is simply devastating!
      May we experience the true and complete Geula speedily-today!
