    Does anyone know anything about the Biala Hasidim (more than is on Wikipedia)? How many Hasidim of Biala are there? Is anyone here a Biala Hasid? Any info is welcome, thanks

    Ask the rebbe when you meet him

    I LOVE Bialer chassidim (I’m related to some), but I don’t know too much about them. I’ve heard that the Bialer Rebbe is very into being “mivaser tov” (the title of his series of sefarim), which means that he finds the good in every human being. It’s a middah that appeals a lot to would-be baalei teshuva, and he has BH been mekarev quite a number of Yidden. I forgot which area of Eretz Yisrael he lives in, but I know he goes to Tzfat often.

    I think most Bialer chassidim are concentrated in Eretz Yisrael. I know of a family in Nivei Yaakov and another in Ramat Eshkol, both baalei teshuva. I don’t know how many chassidim there are, but I would imagine it’s not many, at least relative to the more well-known chassidic sects. It’s not substantial enough that everyone has heard of them.


    Much can be gained by reading the first several pages of the small softcover Siddur “Seder HaYom, Chelkas Yehoshua”


    I have become a Biale Chassid over the years. The Rebbe Shlita is the real deal, down to earth, big talmid chacham and genuinely cares about all Jews equally. He currently lives in Tzfas but the kehila is in Jerusalem. There are thousands of chasidim worldwide but the main community is in Jerusalem. The Rebbe is an anikel of Pshische. Do yourself a favor and check out any of his many ( dozens) beautiful seforim.


    “He currently lives in Tzfas but the kehila is in Jerusalem”

    Is that right? I thought he splits his time between Lugano and Yerushalayim.
