Remembering Shabse Gordon Print Email

When I heard the other day that Shabse, a"h was niftar I was stunned. I sat down in disbelief and then told the people I was with that this was a man that was a true legend. For decades it seemed that everywhere I went when I introduced myself one of the first questions always and inevitably was---are you related to Shabse Gordon? For a long time I said that I wasn't because I really didn't think we were though people seemed to find that odd considering that for all those years there were two Gordon families in Crown Heights and both lived on Montgomery Street. As time passed I grew accustom to the idea that despite the apparent coincidence---we were indeed not related.
