Rabbi Allan Nadler - 15 days ago

Dear Simone, Avi, Daniel and Michelle, I'm so very saddened to have just learned of The passing of Dr. Gabriel. I have so many very fond memories of lively and illuminating conversations with your husband/father during my decade at the Shaar Hashomayim. Whether at Kiddush, or at Erev Shabbat dinners on Strathcona, it was always a joy to spend time with all of you. Dr. Whiteman was unfailingly charming, gracious, learned and witty -- and a rarity in the community in his intense interest in and knowledge of Modern Hebrew literature and culture. He was one of a small number of people from whom I could learn about such rare delights as recent essays in Ha-Do'ar, and with whom I could discuss Bialik's or Rachel's or Tchernichowsy's poems. A renaissance man in the finest sense. Most of all he was a kindhearted,, good and caring man and the consummate gentleman. My deepest and warmest condolences to all of you during this difficult moment. Yehi Zichro Baruch.

Josie and Arthur Roskies - 15 days ago

Dear Simone, Avi, Daniel and Michelle, We just hear the terrible news of Gabe's passing. He was a very dear friend, a wonderful human being and we both loved him very dearly. He was kind, funny, an intellectual with never a bad word about anyone. We spent many hours of good times together and we shall miss him in many ways. Although we knew, of course, that he was ailing of late, his death came as a great shock to us.. We are still in Israel, but we want you to know that we are with you in spirit and that we know that as we are writing this, it is just 2 hours before his funeral. May Hashem comfort you at this difficult time. Love from Josie and Arthur Roskies
