He shall be greatly missed! Thank you Rabbi Gordon for sharing your wisdom and love for the Torah! You have inspired me greatly and I'm so sad that you are gone...You have certainly had a full life. Thank you a thousand times for making your life a living example of what it means to enjoy the study of Torah!

Rabbi Gordon went one storey higher Thank you very much for this video full of positivity. "The presence of a righteous person is felt even more after his passing."
I will continue to learn with Rabbi Gordon online and retell other people the teachings, explanations and stories I heard from him. Rabbi Gordon's impact is eternal.
May Moshiach come speedily, in our days! Reply

Honoring Rabbi Gordon I just never thought that he would die. He was such a remarkable teacher, fun to listen to, able to instruct the teaching of Torah and Tanya in a special way. I remember asking on my comments for the teaching to be in Hebrew and English so that I would be able to learn the pronouciation in Hebrew, and did just that. I am very greatful. Thank you Rabbi for your compassion and understanding. B"H Reply

This really makes no sense for me.
I just don't accept the information.
I spent hundreds of hours listening to Rabbi Gordon and he became part of my life. Reply

Shalomyah I may never have known, heard from or about Rabbi Gordon. Nonetheless, I feel the very same sense of loss as you all do (having lost my mother at 59 just 4 months ago). My heartfelt condolences with the family, as I earnestly urge us to grieve, not as those who have no hope. Yahweh El gave, He has yet taken. Blessed be He.

To the família of R Gordon I wish that H' consoles you among all Am Isroel that needs consolation. R Gordon's classes were and are excellent and gave and give me support while I am leaving in Israel now without my books that I left in Brasil. Because of him I can still study Chumash and Tanya. There are no words for gratitude. That H' bless you all. Reply

I also would like to give my condolences to Rabbi Gordon's family . I loved his teachings I loved the way he would teach and how he was a very down to earth kind of person. I am not Jewish but I too love the Jewish people as so do many more that I know. May God bless you and comfort all who mourn for this wonderful teacher.

Rabbi Gordon I have been listening daily to Rabbi Gordon's Torah podcasts for the last year or so, and each day I look forward to hearing his wisdom, his clarity, his humor, and kindness. I cried today when I heard the news of his passing! May his memory be for a blessing, and my sincere condolences to his family and friends. Reply

Am watching this now and the words said at the 5:00 mark give me the chills. may Rabbi Gordons memory be a blessing...

What people dont realize is there are very few Rabbi Gordons even in Chabad. The Jews of california are very fortunate to have had him.

Baruch Hashem I want to thank Rabbi Yehoshua Gordon for his time to teach in such a dynamic way helping Yidden to understand Torah and mitzvos! I have been following along the parsha for already 3 years. I encourage everyone to take time with Hashem and learn his Torah with this outstanding Rabbi, outstanding as my dear Rabbi Yitzchock Raskin a great Torah scholar as well! Thank you for your dedication! May hashem send Moshiach soon! Reply
