    They need our support. They should never experience any more pain or hardships and soon be reunited with their loved one. He was an exemplary chossid and is an example to all of us what it means to dedicate oneself to furtherance of the Rebbes goals.

    I remember he would translate and explain the Rebbe’s sichas for neshei Chabad, Tzefat. He made the Rebbe’s words alive and intelligible for countless people, and his energy, warmth and love of chassidis lit a fire in everyone’s heart. What a loss. May Hashem comfort his family and community.

    Rabbi Ceitlin was also a wonderful Tanya teacher in tzfat seminary, where I learned about 17 years ago.He inspired many students with his teaching, stories and beautiful farbrengens! He was a caring teacher, kind man and wonderful chossid! Hashem should send comfort to the family!

    This is too devastating!!! R Cietlin was the epitomy of a chossid – Such Ahavas Yisroel, real Pnimiyusdikeh hiskashrus – an unbelivable shliach – he would farbreng for hours with amazing stories and powerful lessons that will not be forgotten…. He would tell us about the mesirus nefesh in Russia and the mesirus nefesh of nowadays; he would often react for us the scenes of 770 of the Rebbe to give us a taste of what it was like. With his witty humour and sharp catch phrases he would keep everyone on the ball whilst instilling strong Yiras Shomayim and… Read more »

    Boruch Dayan Emes and since tzaaras rabim chatzi nechomo, his family should know that anyone who has ever met him feels the loss. The Rebbe once went to a shiva during the Yuds (printed in Toras Menachem) and said that by chasidim we know that passing on is just going from a bayis (poshete ground floor) to a (light and bright) alya, top floor, but that the same person remains. Reb Aaron Lazer Ceitlin’s warmth and understanding was unparalleled and was infectious. When he’d visit Montreal he’d farbreng for the bochurim and was uniquely inspiring in a way that you… Read more »

    Rabbi Tsetlin was an incredible teacher and shliach. When he farbrenged and taught us in seminary, I was able to feel his emes and love for the Rebbe and Chassidus shine through. He was truly a giant of a man! He lived his life on another plane. He was constantly on fire, passionate and on the go and one the kindest people too. He accomplished an innumerable amount and inspired so many with his shlichus in Tzfas as well as all the thousands of lives he taught and inspired in the seminaries in Israel, Gan Yisroel Detroit, the trips he… Read more »

    I was visiting my boys in CGI NY and Rabbi Cietlin was there with his devoted wife. I was in awe when I saw him, such a big, great man but so sick. His wife was helping him eat healthy foods in the dining room of camp. I was so shy but I wanted to tell him how much inspiration he gave me through my year in Seminary, Tzfat. Rabbi Cietlin farbrenged many times for us. I’m so glad I found the courage to speak with him and let him know that. It was heartbreaking to see him that way.… Read more »
