    In his personal reflections, Rabbi Gordon shares unique words of consolation that the Rebbe told his father and grandfather at the shiva of his paternal grandmother in 1957.

    “When someone passes away,” said the Rebbe to the Gordon family, “They don’t leave. They just go up to the second floor.”

    Only Rabbi Gordon is able to console all of us who mourn him deeply. This shiur just came from the second floor.
    Seeing and hearing you just as I do when I watch your shiurim is a nechamah.

    Just so hard to accept...

    … and how amazing to have right here the message that the Rebbe gave to him, that a lost loved one is still here—just on another “floor”.
    Because what he says here is exactly how we all feel about him!! He will always be with us especially in his daily shiurm that he has bequeathed to the world.Rabbi Gordon has a major zchus to have inspired thousands…

    May HaShem comfort the entire Gordon family. I was a member of his father’s shul in Maplewood, New Jersey and met Rabbi Yehoshua Gordon on many occasions when he visited his parents(may their memories be blessed). I share the loss with you and May we all greet Moshiach soon to reunite with all whom have gone up to the second floor.

    I have been a student of Rabbi Gordon for many years. Through my journey he has been there as teacher and his passing leaves me with great sorrow. I only regret that I could not meet him in person. As long as I am alive and able, G-d willing, I will continue studying with him. As a teacher he was, and will continue to be, in a class by himself. Unsurpassed. And I will continue to be his student.
