An ancient road connected Jaffa and Jerusalem passed through Lod and Ramle. This road has a new number 44. Along the way between Jaffa and Ramle, there were three large Arab Muslim villages. Yazur (modern Azur), Beit Dajan (modern Beit Dagan), and Safuria - modern Kfar Chabad. During the reign of England in Palestine, a railway ran passed near Safuria, and there was a railway station.

A clothing store is located directly opposite the train station. That makes a lot of sense. But first, let's do a little order in our perception of the Jewish religious world. All Jews are divided into Sephardic and Ashkenazi. Sephardic communities mainly lived in Arab countries and communities of Ashkenaz in European countries. There are Jewish communities not related to such a division, for example, the Jewish community of Italy, or Georgia. Ashkenazi Jews are divided into Hasidim and Lithuanian Jews. Chabad is part of the Hasidim. Chabad is an abbreviation of three Hebrew words: Hochma (Wisdom) Bina (Comprehension) Daat (Knowledge)

The Hasidim have the righteous - spiritual mentors - tzadikim. He points the way and leads his adherents - Hassidim. They wear a white shirt throughout the day and Saturday. It is just like a uniform. This kind of uniform helps to separate from other people. To be separated. To adhere to their laws of rules and traditions. This allows you to preserve the unique foundations in everything - in the most basic that a person has - in the way he dresses. Clothing serves as a tool for highlighting special days. For example, they put on a short jacket during all days of the week, but on Saturday they put on a long coat. All clothing is high-quality clothes.

Boys wear the hat from the age of 13 years. They assume the responsibility of preserving traditions and doing righteous deeds. This should be displayed in clothing. During prayer they impose Hartel, this rope divides the body into upper and lower parts. More spiritual and earthly part. Women wear a wig. This makes her look more modest. The Hasidic community is very dense. The community understands and emphasizes responsibility for each other. A woman seeks modesty and looks modest so as not to seduce another man. Seducing someone else's man is not fair to his wife and not fair to the community. Young people get dated only through matchmaking - "Shiduh". Between matchmaking and wedding usually take place 4-5 meetings.

Rabbi Sholom DovBer Schneersohn founded religious school Yeshiva Tomkhei Temimim for the study of Hasidic philosophy according to the purest Chabad tradition. Students of this yeshiva were named 'temimim' from the single form of the word "Tamim," which means pure, perfect. After the communist revolution, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchok Schneersohn left the Soviet Union in 1927 and reestablished the yeshiva in Warsaw, Poland.

A study in the yeshiva goes according to specific rules. One of the most important rules is that students discuss with each other. They argue, seek the truth, and then listen to the teacher. Adolescents of age 16 -19 study in Yeshiva. Students learn Talmud. First, the study is called the Talmud Girsa - when they study not deeply but a lot. Around ten in the morning, the lesson begins. Pupils know which pages of the Talmud they will study during the day. After discussion among themselves, they listen to the interpretation of the Talmud and afterward there is an addition. Not only study is important in yeshiva but the atmosphere.

Mikvah Kfar Chabad
Uploaded by Evgeny Praisman
Mikva. Kashrut Saturday and Mikeva are three things a religious woman preserve. In the hands of a woman is the purity of the family. Taharat Amishpaha. Every month there is a period in the life of married couples when for about two weeks they cannot even touch each other. When this two-week period ends, the woman goes into mikvah, and the relationship is updated. This greatly enhances the relationship. Mikveh is perceived with reverence and modesty because they know that in the evening when a woman goes to Mikvah, there will be a relationship this evening. This usually happens when stars appear. Men go every day in the morning to Mikvah.

The settlement of Hasidism from the USSR was very ideological. The first inhabitants were mostly recent immigrants from the Soviet Union, survivors of World War II and Stalinist oppression. Regarding their aliyah, the Jewish Observer reported: “There were several noteworthy aspects of this Aliyah. The Chabad members refused all offers of help from religious and political organizations; they insisted on going on the land. Adapting themselves to modern agricultural methods ... To them, it was a point of honor to live as they were taught. This meant subsisting only on what they earned by their own toil"
