Does "The Gehza thing" [sic] keep you up at night? Ask away.

Firstly how do I tell apart a Gehza from a Tzugekumener? A Reitzes is probably of course a Gehza but how about A Lazar? (Both remote cousins of mine). Don't tell me the most famous Shliach in the world isn't considered Gehza just because he's a descendent from Yekkes.

The most prestigious shliach can indeed not be gezhe. You can be gezhe and not even be an observant Jew. So long as your grandparents urinated in select Russian/Ukranian towns. Depending on which town any gezhe Lubavitcher stems from, the other towns won't count.

You might get some indications here and possibly here (a book was recently published in EY with essays from RZP, I was translating it in my mind to English as I was reading it, I might take up the task if/when I have time).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Or Chabadsker
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Chabadnik is an Israeli term. Chabadsker is only used by non-Lubavitchers (often when trying to pass as a Lubavitcher).

Not sure about the Ukranian towns (Yekatrinoslav/Dnepro doesn't cut it, and I'm doubt if Nikloaev does). Maybe Belarussian. It's basically a handful (Klimovitch, Nevel, Beshinkovitch, and maybe another 2 or 3 that I can't think of at the moment. The fact that you had famous Chassidim in Nikolaev, Homel/Gomel, Horodok/Gorodok, etc. doesn't make those Gezhe. The purebred is a product of a select few towns).

Ok, didn't answer the first part of my question, but follow up question, if labels are for t-shirts why all the sect names?

Who says labels are for t-shirts? Sounds like a line that came off of a t-shirt.
When you find yourself agreeing with me more often than not, it's time for a cheshbon hanefesh.

IDK. My t-shirts are tagless.

As for labels and sect names, I respectfully refer you to the links in my post above.

So as long as they were there for a few hours and had a drink? Is it davka grandparents? What about people who they themselves urinated in these towns?

Not my field of expertise.

Labels are for t shirts. And pants. And undershirts, etc. Though sometimes we prefer tagless because the labels get in the way, the information is still helpful and necessary and thus still printed.

Will non-lubavitchers get canceled if they ask questions in this thread?

We already know your opinion on Chassidim. Ask away.
