He was that Chassidishe Uncle the Rebbeim recommended everyone have. I was literally just reminiscing about a Yud Shevat memory of shlepping him out of bed to farbreng with the students at Tiferes Bachurim in Morristown. It was the best Farbrengen we ever had. I can still hear his beautiful voice teaching is the niggun ‘Oy Rebbe’ and how he illuminated the history of Chabad Chassidim. I still cannot read Likkutei Dibburim without thinking of him. He was a giant and a powerhouse and I will always remember him. BDE

He was a giant in his honesty, humility and love. He was a giant in his midos, humor and connectivity. Our giants are leaving us. But this giant’s legacy can never leave us. BDE.

I grew up in Worcester and have fond memories of wonderful Rabbi Gordon. People came to shul on Yomim tovim just the hear him Daven, his voice was pure 24 karat gold. He was a warm loving teacher and father, and may his Neshama be a Molitz Yashar for us all. He will be sorely missed. May his family be comforted among the mourners of Tzion and Yerushalayim.

Used to daven near him Friday night as a kid

Such a sweet soul. Always had a kind word or a silly story to share with me. Would run into him in the super market and he would ask me how I was doing in school, etc, even years later. BDE

BDE. I knew him from Morristown from decades ago. He was very kind, down to earth and super funny. Just remembering him bring a smile to many people’s faces.
