  1. I am sorry for your loss and I feel that your son was very specail person and Yet B”H I have 2 Kids and I feel the pains of your loss and the curel of that person who had not been very smart and not logical and want to be Nichum Aveilim and May the Omnipresent Console you among the other mourners of Zion of Jerusalem..

  2. Palgey Mayim Yardu Eini.
    I am utterly devastated for your loss. I have taken upon myself improved gedarim in a few aspects of my life and intend to keep to them b’n forever in the merit of Leiby. Tenuchamu min Hashomayim

  3. I am a professional who has been blanking out thinking of you and Leiby for the past day and a half. I have never felt such a low, I feel as if I am sitting shiva. The pain is tremendous for all of us. There are no words to comfort you and your family, we are davening for you.
    Hashem should give you strength to move on. Only Simchas.

  4. Sitting in my office, i am not able to concentrate on my work today, just like the last days since i heard of the disapearance of Leiby A”H. My heart is aching with yours, and i have cried on numerous occasions since learning of the fateful news. Hamokom yenachem eschem besoch shear aveilei zion veyrushalaim, umocho hashem dima meal kol ponim OMEN!

  5. As a part of Klal Yisroel and a human being, i feel your pain, and sorrow..
    Its such a horrible, thing that happened to all Klal Yisroel. But as you know Hakadosh Baruch Hu in His infinite kindness sends people only nisiyonos that they are able to overcome. There is nothing to say about what happened,Except that you should be and I’m sure you are proud of having a son like Leibby, he has for sure a special neshomah, (being zoche to bring into this world a special neshomah as his, show that you too are special), through what was happening, he managed to bring klal Yisroel together. I want to tell you something that happened, when I sent messages to all people in my community and people from other towns in france, to join for a tehilim conference, people that didn’t even want to hear about torah, came. And when we told them the heartbreaking new, one of them said that she will take upon herself things to become more religious. Leiby’s neshomah is very special .. And you were zoche to have him, until now. its hard to accept it, but Leibby’s Neshomah has fufilled it’s mission,and it did with a Kiddush Hashem.
    All parents’ dream is to send their kids to the best Yeshivos, but Leibby is in the greatest one we can ever dream of :The Yeshiva shel malo. He is sitting with Hakadosh Baruch Hu by the Kisei Hakavod. We should all take something upon ourselves, we are all concern as Leibby returned to his creator, as a kaparah for all of us.
    I’m taking upon myself to be more careful while I’m reciting Brachos before eating.
    And as I plan and will Imy”h begin a Kiruv program for school girls , I want to do it for Leibby h”yd as a Aliya for his Neshomah.
    May Hashem gives you a Nechoma Kerova.

  6. We don’t know why Hashem tests us. And sometimes he tests beyond what we think we can possibly handle. But one way to handle this test that I cannot even begin to understand, is to know that through all this Hashem loves you and Hashem really loves Leiby, he is being taken care of with all the warmth and love that you cannot possibly imagine. He is basking in the warmth and in a great place up there. Just knowing that should hopefully console you. May Hashem said Mashiach quickly so all these frightening incidences can turn into a Yeshuah!

  7. shalom,

    I am french, I live in Paris and my english is not very good but i really want to tell Leibby’s parents that here , all the french jews think to you . We are sure that your son is a tsadik who is sitting at Hachem’s table with the great tsadikim.
    we are davening for you.
    May Hashem gives you a Nechoma Kerova.
    valerie ifrah

  8. As a father of a boy about the age of Leiby I can not begin to imagine your pain. We’re all feeling it. I too sit in my office and simply can not think or work.

    We’re one nation and if one of us is hurt we’re all hurt.

    With a heavy heart we received the devastating news yesterday.

    We are davening and giving tzedakah in Leiby’s name. His neshama should have an aliya.
    May the one above console you with the rest of the consolers of Yerushlayim.

  9. To Leiby’s parents,
    There are no words for us to say to you. we cannot fathom your enormous pain. As I lay awake at night, unable to fall asleep from this true nightmare, I think of you, and feel for you. My heart is broken though I have never met you or your precious Leiby before, I feel so close and connected. We are all Hashem’s children, Hashem loves all of us, He loves you, and He most certainly loves Leiby.
    I am a young mother of small children and this has hit home so hard. I cannot take this tragedy off my mind…I have decided to take upon myself something in the zechus of Leiby’s special neshoma. Although I definately should, I dont always find the time to daven. I would like to be mekabel on myself to say birkos hashachar bli neder every morning. I know its small, but I would like to keep to it…our hearts and tefillos are with you and I will be davening for all of you when I light my candles Friday night. Hamakom yinachem eschem betoch shaar avlei tzion veyerushalayim…
    may we see the coming of mashiach and reunite with Leiby speedily in our days.

  10. Hashem has brought a neisayon to you, your entire family and to all of klal yisroel through your son. I can imagine that Ganz Klal Yisroel wanted to know Leibby. In a way we all do now. my family and i wish that you feel comforted soon with your strength and emunah from Hashem. I know that hashem gave you this neisayon because you will be able to rise from it stronger and with more emunah and bitachon than ever before. May Hakodesh Baruchu in wrap you with comfort, love strength and good long health to raise your children and grow together as a stronger family. My family wishes you all the comfort and love in the world. “hamakom yinachem eschem bisoch shaar availai tzion yerushalaim”

  11. I can not even fathom the pain your family must be going through. please be strong, for your son. He would want his family to be happy- not sad. I never met him, dont live anywhere even close to him, but i miss him already.
    It kills me to know that this young boy, a future great member of society was taken away from us.
    May G-d bless you and your family in these hard times. Again, your son wouldnt want you to be upset, so for him- smile every day. And every time you smile, think of him. and every time you think of him; smile.

    (quick note to the mom)
    you raised a wonderful young boy. you did the best you could do. NOTHING- is your fault in anyway, and dont ever blame yourself!

    Sincerely yours, with tears in my eyes;
    Mr. Conservative
    Lakewood, NJ

  12. Dear, rabbi and mrs Kletzky
    I don’t even know where to start from I have so much pain inside me I can’t even begin to explain. Wensday morning when i got to work my heart dropped when I heard the news and till this very second that I’m writing this letter I still have this crazy pain inside I never in my life felt such a crazy pain berfore its an inside pain that I can’t explain. Than I tried to start working and before I even had a chance to work I jump up and just start telling my co worker I don’t understand and this kept on going on the whole day and last night I couldn’t sleep so I just asked myself what’s bothering me so much everyone is telling just don’t think about it. But I can’t stop thinking about it. The reason why this is bothering me so much is because when I was younger I had a very hard life than I went off the derech now b”h I’m a frum working man. I sufferd a lot in my life but nothing close to any pain like this I always thought that what I went therew in my 25 years in this world has to be the most painfull and it can’t really get that what I thought till wensday morning. My heart goes all out for you. I’m not going to be able to change the world but I can change myself and in the zechus of your son I’m taking something on which for a long I’m having a battle with but now I decied that’s it I’m going to change rite now for the zechus of the niftar. When I was in aushwitz the hardest thing for me to handle was that they told us that the nazi would make the jews burn other jews for me that was to much to handle how can another jew kill another jew? There is another thing that I want to start working in the zechus of the niftar is to get along with people no matter who they are being nice and thinging about others. To treat people the way I would like them to treat me. I want to work on being more of a selfless person and not always thinging about myself how can I help another jew. That means when we get to work/yeshiva/school in the morning and say good morning with a smile and make the other person feeling good that already helping another person just by say good morning with a smile you can change someones life and I know this first hand when I was off the derech the people that helped me the most weren’t those kool kiruv rabbis it was the simple people that just treated me with love and simple respect. May the holy pure neshome of your dear son have an aliya. May we olny see happiness in the future of our lives. Just remember I have a real soft spot for this story and I hope you get the strenth to see the possitve of thew whole story becuse in everything in life in every case there is always possitve and negtive but it depends how you look at it. Even in a case where the negotive overrides the possitve but if you only look at the posstive it will override the negtive. And in this story b”h there is possitve parts of the story b”h he was able to be buried as a jew that is a very big thing. When I was visting in aushwitz that was something that bothered me a lot is that they didn’t get buried as a jew. All the nice jews that took off to look for leiby thank you. I can write for hours but I have to go learn now and I think that leiby rather that I go learn torah now. May we be all together in jerusalem very soon…

  13. the whole of klal yisroel is sitting shiva this week. i havent eaten in two days, i skipped work, havent left my home and i havent slept well. the same is true with dozens of my friends. Laibey baby is like a brother to me even tho we havent met. watching a few video clips and seeing his pictures is enough for me to feel his zerizus for life. the brother-llike kesher is real for me. thank you for giving him to klal yisroel. thank you for giving him reasons to be only b’simchadik. laibey is an inspiration to all of us.

  14. I am so sorry for your loss. Even though I don’t know you personally, I feel as if I do. No child should ever have to go through with that. I can only wish that everyone in the family will be able to move on with their lives and that Hashem will help you to have many future simchos. I will never forget your son and the great boy that he was even if I didn’t know him. May you all be well and may Hashem be with you.

  15. no words ….. only tears……. ive never cried so much before .who can have words after precios leiby zt’l a true korbon was taken from our midst….. one thing i can try to say is that everyone in klal yisroel feels ur pain….. from yidden here in america to yidden in eretz yisroel. the entire klal yisroel is shooken up by such a story…. and anacnu imu betzarah….. may you only know of simchas…and no more tzaros … and may hashem grant you with many more happy health children until 120…… and we should be zoceh to see mesiach tzedkanu bemhara be’yamu amen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and we shud be zoceh to see leiby zt’l . “hamakom yinachem eschem bisoch shaar availai tzion yerushalaim”

  16. I’m lying here in bed crying. I’ve been crying for over an hour. All the letters and articles about your Little Precious Tzaadik, make me keep on crying. No words can console you, I and everyone else know that. But any little bit that can add to the posibility, that realizing how many people were touched by your Sweet Little Tzaadik Leiby, that it might give you both a drop of Nechama, is well worth it. I will keep on crying for a long while. May you and your family have the strength to go further. May hashem grant you superhuman strength to cope and deal with the saddest tragedy i’ve heard in my life time. I can’t stop crying for you.

  17. Condolences for your tragic loss sent to you from Australia. May you have some peace knowing that people all over the world are sending love to your family and thinking of your son.

  18. I want to be a better human being in evry fibre of my body, in merit of the little angle leibe . . .my condolences to the whole familly The shock was so great even in our small community here in canada ,we felt like we lost one of our own. May his memory be a blessing and an inspiration for all jews whatever there background may be to be united foreever. Amen

  19. I don’t know you and can’t and won’t try to feel your pain

    But all i can say is that he must have bin a really special boy that god picked him from all the children in the world to be a kaparah for the rest of us.

  20. Mishpachas Kletzky,
    You know yidden all over the world have been united by your Leibele. We in Manchester, England are numb and are thinking about you all constantly. May your korbon not be in vain, may this achdus last and end the pain. We have no words of consolation, but we daven HKBH gives you the strength, courage and hope to get through this painful dreadful time. Hamokom yenachem eschem besoch shar avlei tzion viyerusholyaim. Zol nisht vissen fin kein tzar!

  21. Hamokom Yinacheim Eschem Bisoch Sha’ar Aveilei Tzion V’yerushalayim! May Hashem comfort you and may you not know of any more tza’ar. My heart is with you!

  22. Hamokom Yinacheim Eschem Bisoch Sha’ar Aveilei Tzion V’yerushalayim! May Hashem comfort you and may you not know of any more tza’ar.
    As we don’t understand any of Hashem’s ways but its only for the best and lets hope that we will always only be able to see the good with our human eyes.

  23. Your son A”H” was nifter and the responsibility is not yours but rather all of Klal Yisrael’s.
    I cry bitter tears for you personally, and that Hashem somehow needed to do this.
    Maybe it is possible for us to try and do better, each on our own level, each on his or her area as we personally understand.
    I myself have begun working on myself for more achdus between myself and others.

  25. Jew and gentile alike mourn the loss of your little Leiby. When a child is taken before his time, the whole world loses a gift.

  26. Dear leiby we all cried for you. We all waited and waited to hear good news but hashem had different plans that we don’t always understand. Lieby your in gan eden and I am sure that you will tell hashem to send moshiach and take us out of gulus leiby the tears of hudreds of thousands is lighting up the heavens even the sky was crying when right before the start of your leveyo there was a brief heavy downpour tell hashem that we want moshiach now that we have had already enough

  27. Dear Mishpachas Kletsky:
    I am numb. I am a yid who lost both my parents, sat shiva as a ben yochid, and want to share something with you. I had to try to explain to my small children on two occasions where their Zaidy and Bubby went. I explained to them that everything that made Zaidy who he was, didn’t die. He lives on. Only his guf gave out. The neshoma of a yid doesn’t die. It goes on to a more ruchnious-dika existance. So it is with Leiby HY”D. He lives on in Gan Eiden. He will never hear Loshon Hora, Never be tempted to do an averia. He went as a pure neshoma. It is we down here in this temporary world that are struggling. Make no mistake. His patira has moved the entire nation of Klal Yisroel. May our cries reach the heavens and move our master over to the throne of rachamim so he may finally end this terrible galus once and for all.
    Hashem Yisborach should strengthen you and may Leiby HY”D be a maylitz yosher for all of us. Hamakom yenachem eschem bisoch shar availey Tzion Vi Yerushalyim.

  28. Mishpachas Kletzky you are constantly in our thoughts. May Hashem bring the ultimate nechama BEMHEIRA so we can know of no more tzar.
    Hamokom Yinachem Eschem Bsoch Shaar Aveilei Tzion Yerushalayim.

  29. I’m sitting here, on motzei shabbos, more then 5 days after the search began, almost 4 days after the bitter, bitter news reached my ears. We all davened, learned, and did hishtadlus lezchuso. But hashem had other plans. I will never forget the feeling that washed over me Wednesday morning at 5:23 am, when I received the text message bearing the bitter news. I along with the rest of klal yisroel will remember that for the rest of our lives.
    Why hashem took away klal yisroel’s little brother like that, we will never know. But, hashem only gives nisyonos to people that can handle them. Therefore, if hashem felt that you, the parents can handle such a nisoyan, you must be really special people. But you should know that this nisoyon was not just for you but for all of klal yisroel. Hashem felt that all of klal yisroel can handle such a nisoyon. Now, looking around it looks like klal yisroel is having a very hard time pulling through this nisoyon and learning from it. But, I know that you, along wiith all pof klal yisroel will pull through the passing of such a tzaddik, because if he felt we wouldn’t be a able to pull through we wouldn’t have gotten tested. Ashrecha that you are the ones that were chosen to host a tzaddik like this for almost 9 years.
    We cannot and never will be able to feel your pain but, know that klal yisroel is suffering with you.
    I can go on for very long……. But umocho hashem dima meal kol ponim and may we have no more tzarros in klal yisroel and may our korban Leiby ZT”L be a meilitz yosher for his family and for us all. And may he beg hashem for us, please to bring moshiach……we have suffered enough in this golus

  30. Its now sunday morning six days since leiby has shaken the world conscious. I am still weak I am stll sad there are no words for comfort only our belief in hashem and bitochen could make this bearable. Leiby your memory is always going to be alive we will never forget you our tears for you the thousands and thousands of tears will never dry up only moshiach and techias hamesim will dry those tears. Before I start my seder every day I will say your name lezecher nishmoscha

  31. I cry for all of you; I cry for all of us.
    I cry for a boy I never knew who touched my heart like my very own.
    I cry for all of us for we failed to touch the hearts of the misguided.

  33. my heart aches for you, my eyes weep for you, my leibby be in the warmth of hashem. In his short time, leibby taught us about love, kindness, and life, and in his death he teaches us still, may we all learn from this fine young man. I will keep you in my heart, and my prayers, bless you

  35. We are so sad, we feel an unbearable pain in our heart and we cry but we’re sure that this pure little nechama is right next to Hashem & learns now directly from Him Our thoughts are with you dear Kletzky family

  36. no words can console you, the parents, grandparents and siblings… all of klal yisroel around the globe are crying with you. we are all suffering along with you. But one thing is on all our minds… Leiby must have been something very special – how a young boy can be zoche to create such achdus in klal yisroel and to be zoche to me melave to his rest place by thousands of people in person and via hookups ….only big tzadikim are zoche to this…. and this is obviously a zchus for the family to have raised such a neshame.

  37. L’chvod Mishpachas Kletzky,

    K’lal Yisroel shares your pain.

  38. As soon as I heard the news, I told myself that I’d come to the levaya and take part in the community mourning the loss of this yiddishe neshamele.
    He died al kiddish Hashem both because he was returning from his day in camp after summer learning and two, because of the tremendous achdus that he brought klal yisroel. I’m sure little Leibela is sitting next to the kisay hakavod along with all the other kidoshey yisroel.
    Hamakom yenachem eschem besoch shar avalay tzion v’yerushaliym.

  39. words can’t console us. i feel like Laibey-baby is my own little brother. this was going to be his summer to show the world how grown up he is. please know that you – all of you are never alone. we, all of ysiroel, are crying, hurting. you knew him best, but we love laibel too. and you are not alone in keeping his memory alive and you are not alone in your pain. you will never be alone.

  42. Words cannot articulate the pain and anguish we feel for the kletsky family. almost a week later we can not stop crying. I feel as if Leiby was my own son, or my little kid brother. I have engraved a picture of him in my heart forever. We hope to share in many simchas in the future, and we have every intent to have leiby live on, at least in our family by each of us taking on numerous hours of no loshon hora a day, b’n, until bias hamoshiach. May we see no more tzoros,

  51. There are no words. Let me just repeat what you Rabbi Kletzky said by the levaya. Leiby Z”L has a new family all of Klal Yisroel. This is the way we should feel about a fellow yid all the time. Leiby’s pure neshama broght this out. May he be the shliach to bring Mashiach.

    May all the Achdus created by your special sweet Liebe Zt’zl be a Zechus for his Neshama and may he be a Meilitz Yoisher for Your Entire Mishpacha and for Gantz Klal Yisroel.

  54. To the family of Leiby Kletzky, A”h,

    I have never met Leibby a”h or your family. When I heard of the terrible tragedy that had befallen the entire klal yisroel, I took upon myself to change something that I have been trying to change in myself for over a year but had never succeeded. I wanted it to be in the zchus of such a special boy a”h that I conquer my yetzer hara with. I have this nisayon every day and every day when I don’t fall to it, I think of Leibby a”h. It is his teiyere neshama that gets the credit for all of it.

    I pray for your family that Hashem comfort you in this terribly difficult time.

  56. i still can’t sleep. so i will write. Rabbi Kletzky, you mentioned how honored you were to have our little Leibey for nearly 9 years. but i want to add how honored we, klal yisroel are that you and the rebbetzin had our little Leibey for those 9 years. You raised him in a Torah home and instilled good middos and eidelkite into our Leibey. it was these middos and menchlikite that inspired him to switch sports teams to the loosing side in an effort to help them win. it was your home that taught our Laibey to daven with such focused kavanah that it inspired his rabbeim. it was your example that made him a macher with many friends. i understand that he was the spitting image of his father in every way. thats because you, Rabbi Kletzky, served as a stellar role model and taught our Leibey by example. And now, in the same way, you are teaching all of klal yisroel how to handle the very worst possible trauma and horror imaginable. I cry and hurt that am yisroel lost such a hidden treasure. ive read all of what the gedoli yisroel have to say about our loss of Leibey. but the only words that stopped my crying and lessened my hurt were your own. the words you said to our Leibey and to the Abishter that he was a gift to klal yisroel for those nearly 9 years. your lives and our lives have forever been enriched by our Leibey.
    thank you , Kletzky family, for raising our Leibey in a home or torah u mitzvos, a home of shalom bayis, a home that prepared him for such a beautiful and rich life where he was able to fulfill his purpose in olam ha zeh in those nine years and perfect his neshama so greatly that Hashem was compelled to bring him out of this dor. and thank you, Rabbi Kletzky, for requesting of your son to include all of us in his davening.

  57. To the Chosheve Kletsky Mishpacha,
    Klal Yisroel is mourning alongside you. It is obviously a kaporo for this generation. As a parent of a child with mental illness, I thought that this was the worst punishment, seeing a child suffer & wonder why Hashem put him here on this earth & not minding fulfilling his mission now on earth. I try to be strong & with your suffering, I am reminded of my own & cry tears for you as well. Hashem should give you the strength to move on in life & this experience for klal yisroel will never be forgotten. Thousands have done tshuva because of this & that is a tremendous zchus for the neshomo of little Leiby a’h. May Hashem comfort you among the mourners of Tzion as we, as a nation are now mourning the bais hamikdosh.

  58. Dear parents of Leiby,
    The shiva is over and the pain is still so raw, I share in your pain and would like to offer some words of comfort. Me and the rest of the world were deeply affected by the tragedy. The summer went from calm and peaceful to tragic and sorrowful. I have taken upon myself to be extra careful with brochos. May my kaballah and the rest of the good that came out of this tragedy be a zechus for Leiby in shmayim and us mourners down here. May hakodosh boruch hu comfort you among the mourners of yerushalayim. Hamokom yenachem eschem b’soch avulei tzion byirusholayim.

  59. I traveled to the levaya of Leiby zt”l even though I never met him or you. There were chasidim , litvish , sefardim, etc. and not one dry eye ,everyone was crying , it was very emotional . I haven’t slept well in days , and constantly thinking of him . My family was mekabel a kabolo upon ourselves and I was mekabel a personal kabolo as well , in zechus of his neshomo and from hisragshus hateshuva . My he be a maylitz yoisher for his family and for klal yisroel . Hamokom Yinachem Eschem B’soch Shar Availey Ttzion V’Yerushalaim

  60. Never have so many been so deeply touched. It was so devastating to see this unfold and so many are in pain. This beautiful young boy has been mourned and will never be forgotten by so so many……….. may his parents find comfort and may his dear neshama have an aliyah.
