Community leader and father, Rabbi Gershon Giter Of Blessed Memory,  has left behind a wife who is in urgent need of your support.
Donate generously to ensure that her needs and dignity are preserved.


Rabbi Gershon Giter provided guidance in all life matters for many Jews in Minnesota over the course of 3 decades, until his untimely passing at age 61, on August 5, 2015. 

In 1990 the Lubavitcher Rebbe gave Rabbi Giter his blessing to serve the Russian speaking Jews of Minnesota. A former refusnik, a man of strong faith, he and his wife Leah dedicated their lives to helping their fellow Russian Jews discover their roots. The center they established in the Twin Cities provided a warm and nurturing environment for the observance of Shabbos and holidays. Rabbi Giter organized and officiated at hundreds of brissim and chuppahs. He and his family distributed kosher food, provided educational programs, and often paid out of their own pockets for the Jewish education of children.

Mrs. Leah Giter, who has given and continues to give to so many fellow Jews, is now in dire need of financial assitance. She faces the challenge of being the sole breadwinner of her family.

Help us raise the first $80,000 to ensure his widow and children celebrate Tishrei in dignity!

Your tax deductible contribution is much appreciated. All proceeds from this fund will go to provide financial assistance to Mrs. Leah Giter. Your gracious donation is being facilitated by Machne Israel, Inc. 

The fund is administered by Machne Israel Development Fund and overseen by Rabbi Shlomo Friedman of Lubavitch Youth Organization.
