HB Presents: A Link That is Cool

The Chassidic Rebbe Name Generator......I ask you, what more could you want in life? These are the wise words of I, ...the holy Reb Zalmy Gedalyahu Stein of Obrin , also known as the 'TIVOer Rebbe'. Don't call me Lauren anymore.

Okay...since I am assuming that was a Jewish link...and I'm not Jewish...I need an explanation. I put in my name, and this is what I got:

You are very wise, humble and pious, Kendra...
from this day forward you will now be known as the holy Reb Avigdor Yechezkel Lynn of Lizhensk ,
also known as the 'Heroiner Rebbe'...now let your chassidish adventures begin, your talmidim are waiting!

I don't understand at least two of the words in that paragraph. Help please? :)

Okay...no one else answered my comment yet, so, Rabbi-in-training Daniel, what does Rebbe, talmidim and chassidish mean?

Judy said...

Just call me the holy Reb Nachum Yechiel Griscom of Mozole ,
also known as the 'Beatie Boyer Rebbe'.

Kendra - I have no clue what all that means, but I am fairly confident that it won't fit on the scantron sheet of an SAT test!

Maybe someday I will get an answer to my many questions...someday.

Hey Kendra!
Thanks for the comments. Sorry it's taken a day to get back to you on this. :) We've just been busy around here. Ok, good questions... "Rebbe" simply means "Rabbi". It's just another way to say it. I think "Rebbe or Reb" is mostly used by chassids (chassidish),a sect of orthodox Jews. "Talmidim" is "students" in hebrew! I hope this helps you out. I had to decifer mine too, pretty new words! :)

Not a problem, Lauren.
Now that I understand what it said, I feel much better. :)
Of course, I don't consider myself to be a true Rebbe. :)
Unless you count teaching Sunday School. Does that count? lol
Love you.
