It’s entertainment. And a fad.February 27, 2023 4:28 pm at 4:28 pm #2169734
If to you ‘it’s especially the music’, yourro probably unaware of all the real pros/cons.February 27, 2023 4:28 pm at 4:28 pm #2169733lakewhutParticipant
Music, wearing a gartel, and knowing a few chasidish stories doesn’t make you a chasid. You either follow one fully or you’re just straggling along.February 27, 2023 4:44 pm at 4:44 pm #2169756DaMosheParticipant
It’s a great example of “Feel Good Judaism”, where people believe that anything which gives you a warm fuzzy feeling is bringing you closer to Hashem.February 27, 2023 6:05 pm at 6:05 pm #2169761commonsaychelParticipant

Is it really just a fad? In plenty of Shuls, new positions like mashpia are popping up everywhere.February 27, 2023 6:07 pm at 6:07 pm #2169771

Its all in the Shtreimlach!!
What misnagid has not walked by a chosid bedecked in a 16 inch fur headpiece delicately balanced on his head on a hot summer day along with a beautifully tailored bekishe and not experienced a deep sense of envy and anguish about not having been born into yiddeshe royalty. Its not just feel-good niggunim.February 28, 2023 2:43 am at 2:43 am #2169835KuvultParticipant
The exact same thing was said about Chasidism even long after it was firmly established.February 28, 2023 11:59 am at 11:59 am #2169915lakewhutParticipant

I think you should all research the names Gershom Scholem and Martin Buber and then come back here and opine on neo-chassidis.February 28, 2023 9:59 pm at 9:59 pm #2170158
