Finally, a Quantifiable Definition

09 May

Heimish is the Modern Orthodox of Chassidus.

All the good food, yiddish, and tradition, with none of the obligation.

    You have stumbled into a vortex of contention, my friend.

    My father has a heimishe havara. However, if anyone accuses him of being chassidish, he’ll get an earful. In terms of the chicken/egg thing, the regional dialect was first, not the sect(s).

    And in terms of obligation . . . chassidim can be more loosey-goosey than others when it comes to chumras.

    Chassidim have dibs on good food?

    Yiddish, woo!

    Ouch! None of the obligation? I guess you don’t know anyone who’s modern Orthodox.
