Yingele...

Ish Chosid Hoyo.


Viznitser Rebbe.

Once upon a time... Ying is extremely excited. In a couple of minutes he'll be off to the holy Rebbe. The rebbe had an ainikel, and tonight is the Vachnacht. The Rebbe, despite his weakness, will be Fiering the Tish. An hour later, he's finally in the Rebbe's Chotzer. The Cheider has just finished, and all the little kids are running into the Beth Medrash. Men - in black - of all ages are hastily running towards the grand Shul. He is getting more and more excited! Soon he'll be seeing the bright face of his rebbe, soon he'll be shaking his holy hands. "Ven Kimt de rebbe Arain?" he impatiently asks, eagerly waiting for the big moment.

Ying can't be bothered shleping to the Rebbe. What's the big deal of a Vachnacht? The white ostrich delivers one every couple of months. He feels distanced. Distanced from the holiness of the Rebbe. He doesn't want to go, doesn't want to feel alone. Save the screaming and fighting, tonight he's off to the rebbe.

He climbs onto the high parentches. His friends slowly help him up onto the stands. A large hush falls onto the crowd - The Rebbe Is Do! The music is on full blast, and the parentches are dancing lively. 'Kol rino viyeshio', they all sing united, 'the rebe zol leben a mazel tov'. The whole place looks like one large waving black carpet.

God almighty! Look at all those boys on the parentches! All climbing. pushing and fighting just to get a tiny glimpse of the rebbe. The music is actually pretty good. Oh look! The rebbe is here. Wow! Look at that shining gold beketche! Pure silk. He wonders what a rebbe does with all the money. Ying would join the dancing - but doesn't feel comfortable. He doesn't feel at home.

Everyone is joining the Rebbe's simcha with such joy and pleasure as if it's their own. The rebbe starts clapping rhythmically his hands, all the chassidim follow. The rebbe gets up and they all join hands. The music pumps up, the singing loudens and the dancing intensifies. One can feel the ecstasy in the air.

He looks around, scanning all the black-hatted chassidim. He doesn't understand; how come they are as happy as if it where their own simcha? Maybe they are just faking the happiness? Maybe this is all a show? And look at the kids. Naively believing that the rebbe is almost God. On the other hand - maybe he is really holy, and it's all not just an act...

The crowd is once again hushed - the rebbe starts speaking. Everyone freezes, trying to understand his smart words, trying to absolve his great wisdom. Ying pushes himself forwards; maybe he might hear some of the holy words that the rebbe is whispering. The rebbe's face, so pure. The holiness, sweetness and brightness that shines from his face, touches ying's heart.

He feels disconnected. Ying doesn't see anything in common with the chassidim, nor with the rebbe. They are all so holy, so innocent. His heart stays untouched, unchanged.

The large fish slowly makes it's way from the rebbe's table, and everyone starts pushing their way to it. He manages to grab a tiny piece of sherayim. Everyone bentches, and the rebbe leaves to his house, followed by all the chassidim, with happy sing and lively dance. Ying gets back to Jerusalem, proud of belonging to his rebbe's army. He says shema with real devotion and concentration. Hi head hits the pillow, falls asleep and is deep in his dreams of becoming one day - like his rebbe.

You crazy? Ying push and get dirty just for a piece of fish? Nothing will happen if he wont taste some sherayim. He leaves the place feeling alone. He has lost his rebbe, the rebbe lost him. Nothing in common, it's just not his place. Anymore.

I am astonished at how much I changed in just one year.

  • Ying,

    Wow! Powerful stuff. What happened over the course of the year? It could be something all of us go through. Do you want to get that spark back? Pray tell.

  • It could be that Viznits is not for you. It is not uncommon that Hasidim switch Rebbes, or that a Litvak becomes a Chosid or vice versa. Some UOs become MOs and vice versa. Same thing with Chardalim. You probably know this better than I do. In short, there are a lot of legitimate ways to serve G-d. I hope you find a way that you identify with. And that does not mean that you have to be a card carrying member of any group. It just means being comfortable with yourself and how you serve G-d.

  • Wow nice one, unfortunately I know that longing feeling only to well, of being there but at the same time not being there. Of physically being part of it, but emotionally being detached from it. Of standing there on the paranshe and some how ending up as the one who is caught in the cross current of the movements from both sides and getting a bashing; both physically and emotionally.
    Ying while you are still young do yourself a favour and find a place where you do feel emotionally at home, a place where you can feel you have enough in common with others to feel Connected . Or else you will end up an old bok and kal like me with no place to call home (not that it does not have its up side too). But one thing make sure that you do not let glitz replace substance, externalism replace sincerity, deeds replace soul (not sure if in today’s frum world that still exists). And most impotently don’t become a LEMMING, because you are way to smart for that and in the end it will only back fire.

  • It isn't viznits that's the problem. I admire the rebbe - and a couple of others - wholeheartedly. It's not chassidus that's the problem, I feel more at home following the same old way my grandparents did, than being a litvak. Actually, I can't stand being yeshivish. No offence, but it's just the experiences I got from yeshiva.

    God - I want my spark back.

  • TRK - I haven't for a long time. But I will.

    Tanks Mamme, thanks l-o-r.

    Cosmicx - If chasidus is not for me, then I don't know what is for me. I can''t stand davening and not knowing for whom, doing mitzvas and not having full love of God. I can't stand keeping bosor vecholov, in plain fear of the shulchon oruch. Where is the love?

    Lost, thanks. You are amazing.

    You understand yourself and you know what you want.

    Believe me, that is more then half the battle.

    Just keep going. I think you will find what you are looking for.

  • Where is the love?

    G-d loves you. Imagine your parents knowing each and every thing you do, every thought in your head, and loving you anyway. Imagine how good you would feel accepting that love. Why shouldn't you?

    About your Rebbe I know very little. It seems to me that he might give you a human glimpse of how G-d feels about you. I know these things are complicated, but could you arrange to speak to him? My mother finds speaking to her Rebbe very comforting, and she has had a lot of spiritual pain and confusion in her life.

    I just love your innocence!! In the chasiddeshe world the rabbis are beyond approach. Sure you can go for a quick hand shake or for a quick yes and no answer for a conveyer belt kind of question. But to discuss your “little” spiritual issues, not a chance; unless you have an inflated bank account. Most the feeling ying and most of us bring up in blogsphere are taboo and the subjects and issues are enough to get us stoned in the charade (yes I misspelled this, but after seeing in word the synonyms I could not resist not changing it) world just for asking them.

    By Blogger LostSpirit, at Monday, June 06, 2005 10:46:00 AM  

  • Thanks Rebbele. I'll just do it.

    Tuesday - You have taught me a valuable lesson today. I always took it for being so simple and normal, that I actually forgot about it.

    Talking to the Rebbe. Sounds nice, but almost impossible. I had a couple of occasions where I was able to speak to him lengthy, but I was too shy to open up and be honest with him. After all, he'll start looking at me (and my family) differently.

    There is this other rebbe here in Jerusalem who actually likes me. I'm calling him this afternoon and see when I can pop by. I can't be totally honest, but that's what a rebbe is for. So I'll just open a tiny bit and see what happens.

    By Blogger survivor, at Monday, June 06, 2005 1:54:00 PM  

  • Oh, Ying........
    How many times have I stood upstairs in the ladies shul, straining for a look at the Rebbe, watching the bochorim on the tall parentchis, the men below around the tish, and wishing I could be one of them.
    Wishing that I could block out all the "vochendike" thoughts floating around in my head, and lose myself completely in the aura of greatness that is the Rebbe and his chasidim.
    Wishing I could truly say that I believe every word, every gesture,the meaning of every morsel of "sherayim"
    Ying......if we can't believe in this, what's left??
    I know, for myself, that I love Hashem.....true, I've been a bad girl and defied HIM plenty, but HE is my father who loves me, who loves us all......I really believe that.
    OH, YING....I want you to find that spark.......and I want to find it too..... Don't give up!!
    My heart is with you!!

  • ying I couldn't have felt more at home at the curent post, I had the same problem like you, and young man, most people won't understand it. From what I read in your posts you seem to be a person who is looking for the ultimate truth in life and basically you feel dieceved all your years for beliving in something that you think that it might be corrupt{don't get me wrong, I don't me the acutual rebbe}.Anyway I think your should start looking for a sort of a "alternative rebbe"I know a few who you might enjoy, ever been at amshinov?

  • Yingele:

    Many moons ago, I too shared your love and devotion to my "Rebbe". That has long gone, and as I realised from "my Siyum Hashas drosho", the less we do for God, the less effect the emotions which are generated from “tishen” and the like, have on us.

  • lostspirit-

    A few years ago, I was living in Boston. I met a family who had brought their daughter to Boston for medical treament not available elsewhere. They were staying at the Rofeh house, which is a tzedaka of the Bostoner Rebbe. I asked the mom if the Rebbe had given her daughter a bracha, but she said she could not possibly get in to see him. I (who am a total nobody) called the Rebbe's secretary, and the girl and her mom met with him that afternoon. Some things are easier in Chutz La'aretz, I guess. (I know everything is easier away from NYC)

  • Yingele,
    Here is a song by Julia Blum which I identify with, and maybe you will too.
    MIN HAMEYTZAR
    So if it's true,
    And if it's right,
    Why can't I change myself tonight..
    Why show me truth
    in black and white
    Then push me back and forth and back
    How can I choose one
    And not choose them all
    In my mind I run
    In my life I fall.
    Everywhere I turn
    I'm up against the wall
    Looking back and forth and back
    And as I cry
    What most I fear
    Is to lose myself
    As I draw near
    Too many voices in my ear
    Push me back and forth and back
    And as I persist
    As I hope to do
    Help me be myself
    While I cling to you
    Don't let me tear myself in two
    Rushing back and forth and back

    MGirl - Nice song. You still go to the vaabe shil to get a glimpse at the rebbe?

    Anon, glad I'm not alone. Actually I have been to the Amshinover. He's a real kodosh vetohor, but not my cup of tea...

    By Blogger yingele, at Tuesday, June 07, 2005 12:18:00 PM  

  • Dear Frummer, bull's eye. That's exactly it. It's not the rebbe, the chasidus or the corruption that's the real problem. I mean, sure it is - but that's not the real source of the disconnection. What you said, is.

    Thank you Tuesday. Fiction? Don't know, never tried. Don't think I'm that good at it anyways.

    Gaboyim ruin the chasidus. All those rebbe's with tens of gaboyim, making it almost impossible to reach the rebbe. Than what's the point of having a rebbe? I don't think the baal shem tov had 7 gaboyim... And if he did, he would of never been a real baal shem tov.

    The Litvishe gedolim aren't any better. Ponovitch is just a small example. And re: gaboyim, rebisteve etc. Ever tried talking to R Chaim Kanievsky or R Shteinman? Just as bad as by the rebbes.

    2. ONE TO BUTTON HIS SHIRT.
    3. ONE TO POUR THE NEGGEL VASSER.
    4. ONE TO TIE HIS SHOES
    5. ONE TO MAKE HIS FOOD
    6. ONE TO DRIVE HIM AND THE MOST IMPORTANT IS THE TUSHI WIPER. CANT HAVE A REBBE WITH A DIRTY BOTTOM CAN WE?

  • Shulem - you want your kids to always look up to the rebbe and one day, Heaven Forbid, they'll be disappointed n rebel their heads off?
