ווידיאו דחסידי גור

[Hat tip to RB]

This is a nicely put together video, albeit using one of Avraham Fried’s signature tunes by Yossi Green.

It’s a little perplexing. What is the audience? Is it meant to be viewed on the internet?

Is it’s main point fidelity to a Mesorah through Mesiras Nefesh? In that sense, what is the uniqueness over others (apart from size)? I’m not sure it captured the uniqueness of Ger?

  1. Reb Iche,

    I didnt know that Ger is on a recruiting drive! What an absolute self-serving uber-schmaltzy piece of stylized sentimentalism.

    That’s a good frageh you raise, who on Earth is meant to be the audience??? Its clearly aimed at capturing the Israeli/American market, no doubt seeking donations from Amerikanischer philanthropists! Nu Vuden. It definitely did not capture the “uniqueness of Ger, if the Hayligeh Kotzker knew this nonsense would ever exist…….or maybe he did, may His memory be a blessing and guide us through these dark days of the internet.

  2. This appears to be the work of ichud moisdois gur, the central organization charged with the budget of all gur moisdois.

    It seems directed at frum non practicing, (as in no levush etc) decedents of gerer chassidim, who have some gefil to their past.

    There are many of those, including very
    weathy ones, all over the world.

    It tries to pull what ever emotional strings it can.. Probably.was.given out in the mail or shown at one of their 5 star luxury European retreats.

    The igud/ichud is very savvy and
    regarded as one of mist successful fundraising apparatus in the frumme world.

    1. Seriuosly! How many descendants of Ger have a gefil to their past?????? Most wouldnt even know that an Alter Zaide of theirs was once a Chussid! Nice theory though. But then your psot got even better, apparently they are even cashed up Gerer descendants, how do you know that?????????????????
