Until the OP requests a title change to correct their meaning then its WYSIWYG whether it was meant to be something else or a Freudian slip. By the body of the post the OP meant "giyur", but did so little research on the word that they typed "ger" even though most British chronicles use giyur/giur but never ger.

Gerim refers to a group of converts(the suffix often indicating a plural). Hence, I assumed Ger means convert, and indeed I have seen it in the context of Reform Judaism as well.

Because those within the communities are taught (brainwashed) from birth to fear the outside. Thus what is considered the norm for them in reality is not the norm for others outside of the communities. And as stated by TFF in other threads, they know nothing about left wing media as it is not kosher for them to even hear it. They only read what they are allowed to read and see what they're allowed to see.
Just another example of the hogwash media propaganda. The only true sentence in this statement is that we have a different "normal."

Pruzhany, these claims are so cliche. Can't you come up with something else, puleeze. Find another like the forbidden soy products. That was, at least, original, even if was equally ludicrous.

JB is entirely correct.

And for all the anti Chasidic postings in this thread, well, there are no Chasids in this forum to defend their practices. Maybe we should just stick to the OT.

There is article after article of Chasids being not being representative of Torah Observant Jews. The only propaganda is the continuous cover-ups you spout when the truth is already out. Its time for you to come out of your bedroom and see the real world as it is. Good luck when you decide to cross the threshold into reality.

Its not anti-Chasidic to post the truth. And you know better since you know Chasids are forbidden to access this type of site. All you can do is post articles that state the opposite of each link I've listed. BTW I call it the Tanakh. Why are you calling it the OT? Freudian slip?

LOL Reality!! Reality is G-d and His Torah. Everything else is a smokescreen.
