14.10.2012

Ger, or Gur (or Gerrer when used as an adjective) is a Hasidic dynasty originating from Ger, the Yiddish name of Góra Kalwaria, a small town in Poland.
Prior to the Holocaust, Ger was probably the largest and most influential Hasidic group in Poland.[citation needed] Today it is one of the largest Hasidic dynasties in the world.[citation needed] It is now based in Jerusalem. The rebbes who lead the movement have the family name of Alter. The founder of this group was Rabbi Yitzchak Meir Alter (1798–1866), known as the Chiddushei HaRim after his primary scholarly work by that title.

Ger, or Gur (or Gerrer when used as an adjective) is a Hasidic dynasty originating from Ger, the Yiddish name of Góra Kalwaria, a small town in Poland.

Prior to the Holocaust, Ger was probably the largest and most influential Hasidic group in Poland.Today it is one of the largest Hasidic dynasties in the world. It is now based in Jerusalem. The rebbes who lead the movement have the family name of Alter. The founder of this group was Rabbi Yitzchak Meir Alter (1798–1866), known as the Chiddushei HaRim after his primary scholarly work by that title. Almost all Gerrer Hasidim living in pre-war Europe (approximately 200,000 Hasidim) perished during the Holocaust.Rabbi Avraham Mordechai Alter, who managed to escape, set about the task of rebuilding the movement in the British Mandate of Palestine.

Under its post-war leaders, the movement began to flourish again. Presently, on major occasions such as Shavuos, more than 12,000 Hasidim may gather in the main Gerrer beth midrash.

Large communities of Gerrer Hasidim exist in Israel in Ashdod, Bnei Brak, Jerusalem, and Tel Aviv, as well as in New York, Lakewood, New Jersey, Los Angeles, London, Antwerp, Zurich and Toronto. Several satellite communities have also been established in small towns in Israel, such as Arad in the Negev desert, Hatzor HaGlilit in the Galilee, Kiryat HaRim Levin in Tel Aviv, Beit Shemesh and Kiryat Gat. Ger maintains a well-developed educational network of Talmud Torahs, yeshivas, and kollels, as well as Beis Yaakov schools for girls. Its leaders dominate the Agudat Israel religious movement and political party in Israel. The men are distinguished by their dark hasidic garb, and by their pants tucked into their socks called hoyzn-zokn (not to be confused with the breeches, called halber-hoyzn, worn by some other hasidic groups). They wear a round felt hat, and a high, almost-pointed kapel. On Shabbos and Jewish holidays, married men wear the high circular fur hat of the Polish Hasidim, called a spodik by Galitzyaners (not to be confused with the much flatter shtreimel worn by married men in Hasidic groups which do not hail from Congress Poland).

Ger follows the way of the Kotzker Rebbe in stressing service of God in a sharp and objective way, as opposed to the mystical and spiritual orientation of other Hasidic groups. Ger also places much emphasis on Talmud study. During both Friday night and Shabbos morning services, worshipers take a break — usually one hour long — which is devoted to Torah study.

Hebrew is spoken, unlike other hasidic movements where Yiddish is used.

כשאני לעצמי
ואתה לא איתי
מה אני כשאני בנפרד
כי אני יהודי
לא הולך לבדי
רק איתך, ידידי, יד ביד
עם אחד, שיר אחד
בוא אחי ותן לי יד
ונוכל לשמוח ולרקוד יחד
כאיש אחד בלב אחד
לא רוצה להיות לבד
רק לנצח שבת אחים גם יחד
להיות משפחה
זהו סוד השמחה
כי ביחד הכל טוב יותר
ואנחנו שרים
כל ישראל חברים
על אף אחד לא נסכים לוותר

אם נצליח לאהוב
ונשיר הנה מה טוב
המשיח עוד יגיע בקרוב

Translation:
When I am for myself
And you are not with me
What am I when I am separate?
For I am a Jew
I do not go alone
Just with you, my friend, hand in hand
One nation, one song
Come my brother and give me your hand
And we will rejoice and dance together
As one person, with one heart
I don’t want want to be alone,
Just forever brothers sitting together
To be a family
Is the secret of joy
For everything is better together
And we sing
All Israel are friends
We won’t give up on anyone

If we can successfully love
And sing ‘how pleasant..’
The Moshiach will come soon

Life Giving Water

 26.01.2014

Our sages teach that in the merit of Miriam’s righteousness, a miraculous well accompanied the Jewish people throughout their wanderings in the desert and provided them with water.

Through her unique contribution, Miriam acts as a role model for all Jewish women.

Just as water serves a vital function in the body by dissolving nutrients from food and transporting them to every part of the body, the Jewish woman serves an indispensible function within the Jewish people as a whole.
