    hi. I am a bais rivka student that just returned from an amazing inspirational shabbaton. The theme of the shabbaton was “bishvili nivra hahelem, and that even in times that the good in the world seems hidden we need to find the good. In honor of gedalyas memory I take upon myself that even in a time of tradgedy, I will recognize that hashem is running this world and there is a greater picture. Although in such times it is difficult to find the good, it really is for the good. May gedalya be a guteh better for his family… Read more »

    It’s been an honor to have learned with and from Gadalia, may his Neshama find peace and bring Moshiach. He was a true tzadik, and had a passion for Torah and ahavas yisroel that I hope to emulate. A real simin teshuva for all the community and all those that have known him.

    He, being a Baal teshuva, inspires me, frum from birth, to generate a fraction of his determination and passion for yiddishkeit. I say proudly that those of us born frum have much to learn from people like Gedaliya and other baalei teshuvah. Maybe if I can become a ‘bt’ in some way this will be a boost for the Neshama of the deceased.
    Thank you Gedaliya.

    Dear friends,
    Having read the tragic news, it is deeply painful. The intentions of this article are purely positive. It is however kind of a bit out of place. When someone writes “remembered” it refers to something in the past. Just like the Rebbe didn’t say Ziya the whole first year. Again the intentions are good, but he is not remembered, he is very present. It’s just a painful state (I hope I make sense).

    The anguish of the parents must be unfathomable!
    I’m wondering if anyone will name their baby after him as a great comfort to the parents. I know as he died tragically and so young, a sheilo must be asked but please can we maybe think about it… He left no descendants…
    His parents need comforting in any way we can!

    There was a tragic accident today in crown heights where a 25 year old boy was killed by a sanitation truck it is very unfortunate that the family cannot cover the funeral costs. If anyone can be part of this huge mitzvah of helping a person to bury them it’s is one of the biggest mitzvahs you can be part of. If anyone can help please direct to the organizers of the funeral you will pay them direct they need to raise 6k by tomorrow morning. Thanks to whomever can help out and may we only share good news.

    Everyone in Crown heights should make it a priority to go to the Levaya, the Yeshivos and high schools should send their students. The shops on Kingston should close for the hour and go to 770. This young Bachurs life and tragic passing should be an inspiration to all of us and be the last Levaya in Gauls.

    Is there a mosad or perhaps is the Yeshiva taking checks for those who want to help. This is very important so those who can and want to help can do so.
    Our hearts go out to the parents; we feel their pain immensely.

I will especially miss our interesting conversations in Yiddish during meal times. He was my Yiddish speaking friend in the Yeshiva. Thank you for your kind, comforting words throughout these past few years and your helpful advice on a variety of topics.

    My heart goes out to the parents, as we desperately yearn for Techias Hamaisim now!! Here’s a suggestion for all of us: Besides the fact that we’re learning about Ahavas Yisroel in Tanya now, it is clear from what I’ve read, that Gedalya loved every Jew unconditionally. Perhaps we can all take on something in the area of Ahavas Yisroel for his Neshama, which could include being careful not to judge others, be careful with our words, taking care of grudges etc. If we all did at least one act in the area of Ahavas Yisroel, it would certainly be… Read more »

    6. Loving Bochur wrote: B”H What Rabbi Hecht said does not do justice to the character, hasmada, emisdigekite, loving-care, and overall Goodness of Gedalia, may his memory be a Blessing for us all… It’s extremely hard to digest. Gedalia could always be found in his makom kavua in the Zal, straight in plain view of the main glass entrance doors for all to see, and who was available to all those who saw him at any given time! Don’t get me wrong, Gedalia never ceased; he would learn straight through the day and into the night! He was usually in… Read more »

    I remember meeting him in Morristown. I could tell he was a special guy right away. I asked him what Gedalya means and he told me, big G-d. My only way of understanding why HaShem would take such a special person from the world is that He’s a big G-d and it’s way beyond comprehension. Gedalya’s soul should have a graceful aliyah
