I am trying to figure out if @Dan is a Telsher! It would explain SO MUCH!

Closeted, maybe. That's why he has a car that hides its doorknobs.

This thread is pretty enlightening. Perhaps usernames can have a little symbol reflecting which users are purebloods vs mudbluds. It is imperative for others to know.

It's quite obvious all the people posting here are bitter tzugekumener drek dripping with jealousy over not being gezhe

Alas, the only time I was in Wickliffe was for Kaparas one year. Outdoors.

But the Rosh gave me a bracha with my lekach one year that I shouldn't be such a yekke.

ANd this is the supposedly inclusive chassidus? Rav Gifter ZTL said that anyone who touched the doorknobs of Telshe became a Telsher!

We're so inclusive that everyone would qualify, hence the additional barriers for this elite qualification.

You're about to live up to your username with this behavior :P

The

*Frog Dissection Ahead*

Gezhe is a joke. It's a term whose definition changes depending on the context and who's using it. It generally means OG Lubavitcher from specific Chassidic towns. It's not something 99.9% of Lubavitchers take seriously. The most common current usage, outside of jokes, is when relative newcomers think they aren't getting a seat at the table because the "gezhe" are Deep State and control the game. You're getting a peak at 50 years of gezhe jokes.

A "tzugekumener" is anyone who came to Lubavitch after you, similar to "newbies" on DDF.
