    In the country where I live there is the city called Uman. The absolute majority of the people on Earth have never heard about it, but the city has significant importance for one of Hasidim branches (so called Braclav Hasids), because there is a grave of one of their main teachers. Every year several tens of thousands of Hasids come there to celebrate Rosh A-Shana.

    This pilgrims have overall a bad image among local citizens, because of their aggressive behavior, alcohol addiction, noise and mess.

    What image the Hasids have among the Jews, especially religious ones? How their teachings are viewed - as the more strict and pure form of Judaism or as one that is somewhat deviant?

    Yes, they go to Uman because of Rabbi Nachman.
    You come off like a Ukrainian Nazi calling Hasidim Jews bad.

    Sounds like they know how to party. Do any of those hawt IDF babes show up there too?

    I'd almost renounce my Christian faith and become Jewish for one of those, 'cept I'm part Cherkee and suck at growing a decent beard. :biggrin:

    It is just a silly remark. The reason I ctreated the thread wasn't about telling that Hasids are bad. But it is pointless to argue that some aspects of their behavior cause them to have dubious reputation in the place where I live.
    The main reason of this thread is to explore what Jews and other people think about this branch and how this branch comes along with mainstream Judaism.

    I am fascinated with the idea that there are Chassidic jews who are alcoholics.
    I never encountered even one in a long career that included treating the complicatioins of alcoholism

    I guarantee this guy has never met or had any social interaction with a Hasidic Jew. I would be willing to bet he's never had any interaction with any Jew who wasn't his landlord, boss, or court-appointed attorney.

    He only knows what his pappy taught him and is looking for a reason to justify his own hatred of a people of whom he has no acquaintance.

    Yes, I have never meet any Hasidic Jew and maybe if I had there would be no reason to post this thread. But I do meet Jews and some of them were my neighbors.
    My hatred towards Jews exists only in your head. So, stop posting this nonsense.

    It was certainly a wrong term it seems. I meant their extensive use of alcohol during celebrations, not that they are alcoholics in the common sense.
