  • The Mission Continues

    As in the past so it remains today - we were and still are under the selfsame commitment to adhere to the directions of the Gedolei Yisrael, who stand guard against breaches of purity threatening our camp. When we were required to ask – we asked. When we were instructed to depart – we left. The moment we are summoned back to raise the flag, every other consideration is pushed to the side and we answer: We are ready!

Belz: Restoring the Glory of Old

After years of wearing a kolpik for the hadlakah, the Rebbe shlita will now be wearing a spodik

Yochanan Weisberg 15/12/2009 11:55

Last night, the Belzer Rebbe shlita appeared in his Beis Medrash wearing a spodik for the hadlakah.

Up until now, the Rebbe would wear a kolpik, however from now on he will wear a spodik as it has lately been discovered that before the Holocaust, tzaddikim would wear spodiks for the hadlakah, and not kolpiks.

The Rebbe asked his assistant to order a spodik for him earlier this week, and last night he wore it for the first time.

For those who don't know the difference between a spodik and a kolpik: the spodik is made out of tails from an animal called 'fischer', while the kolpik is made out of the fur of an animal called 'soyval'.
