Enough is Enough

Ad Mosai? How much longer do we have to wait, Almighty HASHEM Tzur Yisroel, WHY?!? We DEMAND For MOSHIACH NOW!!

Enough Already

I remember growing up as kid with gershon in Montreal. What a special he was the Director of Bies Rivka worked hand in hand with Rabbi Kramer. Such a special man. Always so nice. May Hashem comfort the family. Enough Already ad mosai!!!

Helped us shluchim in crazy places
March 29, 2020 8:31 pm

He was from the only ones who thought about the Shluchim struggling with special needs kids….he founded Yaldei Shluchei Ha’rebbe

Was a very warm and special person

No words!

This is too painful. Why? Not fair!
Gershon is a gem, his shoulder held so many people’s tears with grace compassion and kindness unparalleled anywhere else.

I will miss him tremendously!!!

This bloodshed needs to stop!

We need Moshiach now!!

This is crazy! When will Moshiach come already ? This is the last generation but we cant wait any longer. Ad Mosai!!

We need Moshiach now!!

So sad. I didn’t know him, but I’m crying for the family.

R’ Gershon was a shtarke chosid. One thing that always stood out for me was his extreme seriousness for chitas and rambam. Every shabbos i would see how he davened, and made sure to finish all the shiurim.

An Amazing Person!

He had a kind nature and was very lucky to have the Hechts as his models.
His wife and family should find the comfort they need.
Moshiach Now!!

He was such a special man
March 29, 2020 9:17 pm

Most people would never hear of the Chesed that he did for people. He did it quietly and discreetly without ever drawing attention to himself or to the one receiving it. The name Yedei Chesed is the perfect name for the organization he directed. He was a Mentch who believed in Hashem with a fiery simplicity. He helped me through some of the toughest times in my life. You are loved and will always be missed. If he were still alive I know he would tell people “Use me as an example and stay at home!” Ad mosai!

I am a witness of this

He helped me through some of my toughest times as well. He gave me many hours and wise advice for how to help my special needs child and get her what she needs. Not because I live in Monsey or because my child is a part of his programs. We don’t even live there. Just because he cared. I will miss him.

A Powerhouse of a Man
March 29, 2020 9:28 pm

This is so painful and raw. Really no words.

Reb Gershon was a true Chosid who went way beyond the call of duty for his fellow yid. He was a tremendous Dugma Chaya for all and never gave less than his best. He will be sorely missed.

I can’t believe he’s no longer among the living. Hashem please save us and bring an end to this bitter golus!

Wonderful Great Person
March 29, 2020 9:30 pm

Ad Mosai – I worked with him in Toronto day camp.
Fine and nice person.
Please Hashem send us Moshiach.

He was such a special man
March 29, 2020 9:34 pm

I spent many Shabbosim in his home and got to witness firsthand the type of person he is behind closed doors. He spends his free time learning all day long when he wasn’t helping people indiscriminately. He had a heart of gold and was a living example of what it means to be a chosid and a mentch. I leanred many things from him including how to conduct a proper pesach seder. He had a fiery simplicity in his avodah and did it rain or shine. He also is the composer of a song many people sing on shabbos “It… Read more »

he was there for shluchim with special needs children in ways that can’t be measured. you always knew you could call him. he had the info and connections you needed. he called you back, spoke with such kindness and warmth. treated you like you were family. he was so kind, so warm, so in the know and utterly selfless. his loss is unfathomable. may hashem comfort his family

A phenomenal Chosid and human being. A tragic loss for Klal Yisroel. May his family be comforted amongat the mourners of Zion.

Emess . No Bluff

Gershon was emess. No bluff. No fluff.
He was modest ,kind,and a true chossid . Never doing things for publicty- doing them because they had to be done and with aidelkeit.
Rochel ,our hearts are with you . You always personified an Eshess Chayil.
May Hashem give you the strength for this challenge in life. May the Aibersher make it as short as possible by bringing MOSHIACH NOW!!!
Golus ,you’ve served your purpose BE GONE WITH YOU!!!

So sad. So so sad.

He was a giant in Chesed
March 30, 2020 10:55 am

At Yedei Chesed, he wasn’t just our boss, he was also our father. He helped people during their toughest times, he assisted so many families in ways that we will never know. We lost a giant in Chesed. Hashem please send Moshiach and bring an end to the bitter Golus!

He had such a good aura around him! He will be deeply missed until we will be reunited by Mashiach.

I think this is who hired me the 2nd time around* at ULY, Ocean Pkway, Brooklyn – when I had just gone in for a tuition meeting for my 2nd son. no mention in his write-up but he was only at ULY for a very short time. a very nice man. so sad.

*1st time around was Rabbi Kotlarsky, A’H.
