0202 – Points of View from Jerusalem


"[Last Tuesday] the youngest daughter of Rabbi Enshil Fuchs, an important figure in the Breslov [1] community, celebrated her wedding. As is customary to do at the wedding of one's last daughter to be wed, the father, Rabbi Fuchs, danced with a straw broom, in accordance with Jerusalem tradition [2]. Other rabbis and the general public participated in this joyous occasion."

– B'Hadrei Haredim

0202 Editor's Notes:
[1] Beslov – a branch of Hasidism, formed in the late 18th century by Rabbi Nachman of Breslov, whose grave in the Ukraine is visited by thousands each year. Breslov Hasidism, in many new forms, has gained popularity mostly in the second half of the 20th century.
[2] The broom dance is customary in some Hasidic sects, meant to symbolize the joy of marrying off one's youngest child.
