    I urge everyone to please make the effort to go. If I was in CH I would be there. Such a tragic loss, it’s the least we can do for such a bochur.

    The entire shchunah should be there!!!

    My heart goes out to Gedalya’s mishpocho. I am a parent of one of his close friends at Tiferes. This young Tzadik’s name and his accomplishments were part of our discussions at home. I’ll quote my son D, Gedaliya was the pillar of der Zal.
    He was outgoing, brilliant, fun, a Talmid Chacham, loyal friend, A Yid, vi GoT Hot Gebotn. Baruch Dayan Emmet.
    Zichrono Li”vracha. Zein Nushume Zol Zich Meen in Gan Eden. Gedalya, Neshama Yekara-you will be remembered Le’olem Ve’ad.

    @#5, I would say it’s Gadalya Ben Avraham. May his Neshamah have a aliya, and beg Hashem for Moshiach

    Baruch HaShem, I had the zchus to be there.

    I didn’t hear about the levaya until I was walking down Kingston and saw the humongus turnout. Baruch HaShem, I had the zchus to be there. From the young girls to the alterer bubbys, hundreds of women (aside from the men and boys) turned up to pay respects to the niftar. I hope it will be a comfort to his parents.
    May Hashem shower us all with his revelation of Moshiach Now.

    How special to name a baby after him.

    It would be helpful if someone put out the halachos of what to do after the levaya (hand washing, how far to walk, etc.) a lot of people were confused…

    I love his Shuirim on Geulah & Moshiach!!

    His life is now making people aware of the Rebbe’s hoira to learn these topics. Go online and study with him, bring Moshiach Now through him!!

    After a neshamah passes on it’s not about Davining, it’s more so about learning משניות or learning in general לעילוי נשמתו or giving Tzdaka any other good deed.

    What about his parents?

    Did they come in for the Levaya? Has anyone spoken to them? What an unbelievable tradgedy!

    In the Zechus of Gedalia Ben Avrohom I will be learning Mesechta Midos

    In the Zechus of Gedalia Ben Avrohom I will be learning Mesechta Midos

    Gedalia gave Shiurim in Geula and Moshiach. The Rebbe MH”M quoted the Rambam in Hilchos Teshuva That every one should view the world when deeds put on scale as half merits and half opposite and when doing one mitzvah you tip the scale towards merit and you cause Teshua vehatzolo. If every one at the Levaya and does who could not make it make a Hachlota in Gedalyas zechus whether taking A full mesecta Mishnayos a Perek give tzedoka say tehilim with more Kavono we will merit Moshiach Now. and YES Publisize what you are doing this way the chances… Read more »

    Write To His Parents

    Write To His Parents! I would like to suggest over the next few days as we collect our thoughts, people should post comments addressed to his parents. No doubt that it would be a source of great ניחומין to them. The most helpful element in bearing the pain of a personal tragedy is knowing that others care. For his parents to read of how everyone thought so highly of their beloved בן יחיד, -how special he was considered in our community, would be of enormous comfort to people who must feel so alone now. Not to be accused of just… Read more »

    To #15. If someone will daven for the neshama that’s wonderful. Please don’t make someone feel less than positive for offering a good thing. Besides, #5 may well have meant “learn” in addition to daven – which is not dissimilar. As for my dear fellow Crown Heightsers, THANK YOU. A I no longer live in Brooklyn I could not be at the levaya. But I’m so happy to see the turnout. The least that the community can do for someone who CHOSE to be one of us and whose neshama was snuffed out in our schnuna. #13 – BRILLIANT IDEA… Read more »

    an investigation?

    an investigation?

    BS there will be no real investigation. the only thing that will & is being accomplished is more harassment more checkpoints on E.p only in front of 770 & harassment of motorists on Kingston that was very clear yesterday harass innocent motorists & pedestrians fail to properly protect them prevent real crime & give the city the much needed revenue they lost from the suspension of Alternate side nothing more nothing less

    An investigation may show that no one except the malach hamuhves was at fault. This is a tragedy that is beyond the scope of understanding and is so excruciatingly painful… Aibershter, please take care of his parents.

    It was not a car accident

    It was negligence at best on the part of the truck driver who killed someone who was walking in the crosswalk with the green light on his side. Just last night at about 10.30 pm I heard the sudden roar of a truck accelerating as a garbage truck literally sped round the corner of Kingston and Carroll going faster than I’ve ever seen a garbage truck go. It wsa like some kind of game. The driver knew what happened and where- the whole sanitation department knows. But these are who we are dealing with.. Please report things as they happened-… Read more »

    I know that its a long time after Gedalia passed away, in fact it’s almost his first Yartzeit. I just wanted to say- Davening for someone’s Neshama to have an Aliyah is a beautiful thing. I don’t think you should discourage anyone to do so. Gedalia was a close friend of an older man and he happened to know our close friend. Through a long story, both Gedalia and his friend ended up at our house for Succos. As I am the only child at home, I had no one to play games with, and seeing this, Gedalia stopped talking… Read more »
