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.
why does such a term even exist? Given that chasidus and chabad is all about pnimius,  where someone's grandparents ....... shouldn't carry any weight whatsoever

Don't even try. Don't even try.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

The act of urination had to occur while Brezhnev was the Secretary-General of the Soviet Communist Party or earlier.
way too late
I guess
A "tzugekumener" is anyone who came to Lubavitch after you, similar to "newbies" on DDF.

Don't even try. Don't even try.

Talk about inclusive. Maybe @Yehuda57 is right about the insularity and I'm just not keeping up with the latest trends.

Who mentioned anything about Chassidus?

GEZHE IS A JOKE.

Either the person using it is joking, and if they are being serious, THEY are the joke.

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.

Said the non Gezhe (who is a descendent of the AR, and of Menucha Rochel IINM - which is a different kind of brand with its own comradery, but as mentioned above, that doesn't count) trying to hold onto straws and gain legitimacy.  :P

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

There are certainly deep state who in Lubavitch who are not Gezhe.

Here's a map. I'm sure many towns might be recognized. But it's only the few (Nevel, Klimovitch, Beshinkovitch, Dokshitz and maybe 1 or 2 more) that qualify for the true gezhe hallmark.



ETA: just for fun I've expanded the map to include the (Lithuanian) town where my maternal grandmother comes from, which actually had a Chassidshe community, but my grandmother's family wasn't part of it.
Well I guess I'm going to have to lay claim to some serious Gezhe status.

@Dan look at all these fresh fish lubab wannabees.

ETA: My Great great grandfather didn't just piss in Dokshitz he shi@&z there too ;)

I have it on reliable authority that Neville St. in Pittsburgh counts (maybe only if you were farbrenging at Chabad on Campus before).

My paternal grandfather is an American-born Chaim Berlin tzugekumener, and my mother is a BT. I am as fremd as they get.

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.

Takka polar opposites from lkwd!
here in lkwd we’re very into labels.
Everyone here is labeled in one way or another
