    I never knew him but he seems like he was a very special person, a real pioneer and a real chosid. May we be re-united with him with Moshiach now!

    Rabbi Giter was someone who was an inspiration to everyone and his passion about the Rebbe was unbelievable. The way he spoke about his shichus and about the importance of being a chossid was relayed to people in such a touching way.

    Rabbi Giter was an incredible man, and this is a loss for the entire community and the Lubavitch world because he helped and spread so much. I write this in tears.
    Your neshama should have an aliya and Hashem should comfort the family.
    Moshiach Now!!

    Rabbi Giter and Leah Giter lived a mile from my home in Minnesota. I often came for Shabbat dinner, and came to their synagogue Seders, where they were good enough to find me a Hebrew-English Haggadah and to translate into English as well as Russian. I studied with him about Jewish mysticism, and he was so helpful to me about some personal issues. I loved his brilliant mind and his inimitable sense of humor. My condolences to Rebbitizin Leah, and to his children…

    Boruch Dayan HaEmes – words escape me, the pain I feel for you a mere drop in your pain – may you find comfort in continuing the mission of your holy father, both in his holy Shlichus and his very core, at all times a chosid – the ultimate role model for all. May we see him immediately with the coming of Moshiach.

    Beautiful young women of the special giter family. Certainly hashem will shower his chessed and rachamI’m upon you and your relentless mama, and your brothers, for, your father did so many acts of chesed and tzedakah behind the scenes, and asked of nothing in return.

    Hard to believe this is happening! We remember Reb Gershon and his vibrant energy and a love for every Yid. A true and committed chossid of the Rebbe! We will never forget our special Shabbaton we spent together in the mountains near LA. May your endless zechussim light up shamayim and bring Moshiach taking us all out of this dark golus immediately! Moshiach Now!!!

    I just saw this very sad news. Rabbi Gershon Giter was a true chassid of the Rebbe and a mensch. I enjoyed hakafot with him in Paramus and trips to the Rebbe in Crown Heights. For sure he will be a melitz yosher for his family and Klal Yisrael. May his family know of no further sorrows.
