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?

What I said was abundantly clear. If you can't yell, "Mein zeideh hot gepished in Nevel" you ain't squat.

DEFINITELY wouldn't qualify? Do you really think anyone can enter the exclusive club of purebreds by traveling to a said location and relieving themselves there?

That would nullify the entire premise of Gezhe!!! What kind of heresy are you advocating?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Are you ignoring the Klimovitch clan? With known implications at a certain yeshiva.

Not sure about the Ukranian towns (Yekatrinoslav/Dnepro doesn't cut it, and I'm not doubt if Nikloaev does). Maybe Belarussian. It's basically a handful (Klimovitch, Nevel, Beshinkovitz, 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).

What about a descendent of one of the Alter Rebbe's early chassidim whose ancestors didn't reside (or address their bodily needs) in? What about if someone's ancestors lived in Lubavitch itself and were Chassidim of the Tzemach Tzedek/Rebbe Maharash/Rebbe Rashab?

We already know your opinion on Chassidim. Ask away.
How long are the horns? Are everyone's uniform, or do some have longer ones that others? Does it hurt when they knock into things? Do those house-sized teffillin apply a lot of pressure to them? Do you ever have to trim them? Do they turn white when you get old?

Tie them in a knot under your yechi yarmulkah and the rest of the questions are a non-issue since nobody sees them or is blinded by your messianic puff paint.

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

I can tell you first hand descendants of the Alter Rebbe himself are not gezhe

Please. Stop with this nonsense. The qualifications were made abundantly clear. There is only one way to qualify!!!

That's because Telshe didn't serve kasha.
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.

We'll include you, you just don't get premium elite founder status.
When you find yourself agreeing with me more often than not, it's time for a cheshbon hanefesh.

The act of urination had to occur while Brezhnev was the Secretary-General of the Soviet Communist Party or earlier.
