Rebbe which means master, teacher, or mentor is a Yiddish word derived from the identical Hebrew word "רבי" (Rabbi). It mostly refers to the leader of a Hasidic Jewish movement.

Usage

Today rebbe has three meanings:

  1. The leader of a chasidus (hasidic movement) is called a rebbe. His followers would address him as "the Rebbe" or refer to him when speaking to others as "the rebbe" or "my rebbe". He would be referred to by others as the rebbe of a particular chasidus. It is this definition that is the focus of this article. In Hebrew, a chasidic rebbe is often referred to as an admor, which is an abbreviation for Adoneinu, Moreinu, veRabbenu ("Our master, our teacher, and our rabbi"). In writing, this title is placed before the name of the chasidus, as in "Admor of Belz"; while the title rebbe comes after the name of the chasidus when used as an adjective, as in "Amshinever Rebbe".
  2. A person's main rosh yeshiva or mentor, who teaches (or taught) him/her Torah or gives guidance, would be referred to as "my rebbe".
  3. Yeshiva students or cheider (elementary school) students, when talking to their teacher, would address him with the honorific rebbe. They would also refer to him when speaking to their classmates as "the rebbe" or when speaking to others as "my rebbe".

Terminology and origin

The Hebrew letters for rebbe, resh-bet-yud, according to some interpretations, form an acronym for "rosh bnei yisroel", meaning "the spiritual head of the Children of Israel". More than just a rabbi, a rebbe by definition needs to be a Tzaddik; and if his influence is felt even outside of his own circles then he would also be considered a manhig Yisroel, (one of the spiritual leaders of his generation).

Distinctions between rebbe and rav

A rebbe is distinct from a 'rav' or 'rov' (a word usually translated as rabbi, who is a leader of an Orthodox Jewish community, either hasidic or non-hasidic) in that a significant function of a rav is to answer questions of halacha (Jewish law). It is not uncommon for a hasidic Jew to have a rebbe as a spiritual guide and to go to a (another) rav for a ruling on an issue of religious law. Unlike a Rav who has to be a man; there have been a few female rebbes; among them the Maiden of Ludmir.

Hannah Rachel Verbermacher, better known as The Maiden of Ludmir, is popularly known as one of the few female rebbes in the history of the Hasidic movement. ...


Chasidim use the term to denote someone that they perceive not only as the religious leader of their congregation, but as their spiritual adviser and mentor. A rebbe is someone whose views and advice are accepted not only on issues of religious dogma and practice, but in all arenas of life, including political and social issues.


There may be non-chasidim who use the concept of a (non-hasidic) rebbe in this context and would also use this term. Example: "I will ask my rebbe, Rabbi so-and-so, for advice about this personal matter."


Among chasidim, a rebbe is referred to in Hebrew as "Admor", and a rav is often referred to as "Av Beis Din", the leader of a beth din, even if he does not lead any beth din. In some instances, such as Munkacs and Sanz, the two terms are sometimes interchangeable. A beth din (בית דין, Hebrew: house of judgment, plural battei din) is a rabbinical court of Judaism. ... Mukacheve (Мукачеве, Ruthenian: Мукачів (Mukachiv), Russian: Мукачево (Mukachevo), Hungarian: Munkács, Slovak and Czech: Mukačevo, German: Munkatsch, Yiddish: Munkacz) is a city in Zakarpattya region of southwestern Ukraine. ...

Chasidic rebbes

The first and greatest chasidic rebbe was the founder of Chasidism, Rebbe Yisroel Baal Shem Tov. During his lifetime he was referred to mainly as "The Holy One" rather than as "Rebbe," and his disciples were "magidim" or "preachers", such as the Magid of Chernobyl or the Magid of Rovno (now known as the Magid of Mezritsh). The first "rebbe" to be known as such was the Baal Shem Tov's grandson, Rabbi Boruch of Mezhbizh who was referred to as "The Rebbe" during his lifetime. After him, those who rose to positions of leadership and their successors began to be called rebbe. The title gradually came to suggest a higher spiritual status.

Each chasidic group refers to its leader as "The Rebbe."


Outside of chasidic circles the term "Grand Rabbi" has been used to refer to a rebbe. The practice became widespread in America in the early 1900s when chasidic rebbes began to emigrate to the United States and a title in English was needed to distinguish them from other "rabbis".


As an example, Grand Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the leader of the Chabad Lubavitch Chasidim, was referred to as "The Rebbe" by Lubavitcher Chassidim; and to non-Lubavitchers he was called the Lubavitcher Rebbe or the Chabad'sker Rebbe. For the third Rebbe of the Chabad Lubavitch dynasty see Menachem Mendel Schneersohn Menachem Mendel Schneerson (April 18, 1902 – June 12, 1994), known as The Rebbe[1], was a prominent Hasidic[2] rabbi who was the seventh (and to date, final) Rebbe (spiritual leader) of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement. ... It has been suggested that Hasidic philosophy be merged into this article or section. ...


Relationship of chasidim to their rebbe

A chasidic rebbe is generally understood to be an exceptionally righteous person (called a "tzaddik"). According to Kabbalah (and particularly the chasidic understanding of Kabbalah), the world is sustained on the "shoulders" of several exceptionally righteous people in a generation (tzaddikim). These people are understood to have perfected their personal service of God to such an extent that they become literally and physically aware of God. These righteous people's perception (of both spiritual and physical, not to mention temporal matters) transcends the apparent boundaries of existence, such that a Rebbe will appear to be able to "see the future," or at least have strong insight into the life and trials of another. Furthermore, a rebbe is said to be able to affect divine providence. Hasidic Judaism (Hebrew: Chasidut חסידות, meaning pious from the Hebrew root word chesed חסד meaning loving kindness) is a Haredi Jewish religious movement. ... Tzadik may mean one of the following: The eighteenth letter of the Hebrew alphabet, written צ or ץ; also spelled: tzadi, tzodek, sade, sadhe; The Hebrew word for righteous one, and a title given to a Hassidic spiritual leader; also spelled: tzaddik, tsadik, zadik; plural: tzadikkim; A New York-based... This article is about traditional Jewish Kabbalah. ...


As a result, chasidim in some chasidic circles seek their rebbe's advice for a variety of concerns: spiritual, physical, and even business concerns. Furthermore, many people seek the blessing (brocho) of a rebbe (and a chosid will specifically seek the blessing of his own rebbe) for anything from minor (and all the more so major) physical troubles, to grand spiritual concerns. Many famous and common stories of a rebbe's intervention involve women who successfully seek a rebbe's blessing for fertility so that they can conceive after having been barren for many years.


Given a rebbe's physical awareness of God, and the Rebbe's transcendent perception of Godliness, many chasidim take special care to observe the specific and sometimes minute practices of their Rebbe. Even things that seem mundane may nonetheless be seen by chasidim as incredibly significant. For example, Lubavitcher chasidim frequently shape their fedoras to match the way that the Lubavitcher Rebbe shaped his hat-which was more flat then many others. Many Skverer chasidim (of the Skverer Rebbe in New Square) wear their peyos identical to those of the Skverer Rebbe. While chasidim do not always follow the specific practices of their rebbe, the rebbe is able to create practices that may be specific and unique to his chasidim. For example, Rabbi Aaron Roth (Reb Areleh, as he was called) the first rebbe of Shomer Emunim, told his chasidim to pause frequently while eating their meals in order to keep them from overindulging (while this practice may be viewed as meritorious even outside of that circle, it is nonetheless a practice that is unique to the chasidim of Shomer Emunim and its offshoots). Chabad Lubavitch, also known as Lubavitch Chabad, is a large branch of Hasidic Judaism. ... Skver (also Skvir or Skwere) is a Hasidic group that originated in the Ukrainian city of Skvira. ... New Square is a village located in Rockland County, New York. ... Within Jewish religious culture, used to refer to the sideburns of a man. ... The Rebbe of Toldos Aharon Toldos Aharon is the most devout Hasidic sect to date. ...


A chosid will usually love his rebbe like a close family member, if not more so. But the degree and nature of this belief varies depending on the movement. In some movements the chasidim believe that their rebbe is the "tzadik hador" (greatest and holiest saint of the generation) and would regard any thought that detracts from his perfection and holiness as heresy. Other sects lessen this idealization to some degree or another. Since many rebbes are sons-in-law or students of other rebbes, it makes sense that they would view themselves as subordinate to those other rebbes. Nonetheless, their chasidim remain loyal to them because of their special loyalty, a family connection, or a belief that a specific tzaddik (though there may be others of greater spiritual stature) connects best with one's soul. For example, the Kosover Rebbe makes yearly pilgrimages to the Tosher Rebbe. Nonetheless, his chasidim remain very loyal to him. The most well-known "rebbe of rebbes" was the Satmarer Rebbe, Rabbi Joel Teitelbaum. Tzadik may mean one of the following: The eighteenth letter of the Hebrew alphabet, written צ or ץ; also spelled: tzadi, tzodek, sade, sadhe; The Hebrew word for righteous one, and a title given to a Hassidic spiritual leader; also spelled: tzaddik, tsadik, zadik; plural: tzadikkim; A New York-based...

Functions carried out by Rebbes

There are some functions which are exclusively the domain of hasidic rebbes:

  • Reading kvitlekh
  • Leading a tish

Others are not exclusive to hasidic rebbes, but are often an important part of their role:

  • Participating in family celebrations of the chasidim, such as weddings and brisn (circumcision ceremony)
  • Performing mitzvos etc. in the presence of their chasidim, such as kindling the Chanuka lights and drawing water to bake matzos with
  • Leading the prayers on Shabbos, Holy Days and other special occasions
  • Delivering learned or inspirational discourses (in Chabad Chassidus, this is one of the main roles of a Rebbe)

Kvitlekh

A rebbe has times when chasidim (and other petitioners) may come for a private audience. A kvitl (Yiddish for note, plural kvitlekh) is a note with the name of the petitioner and a short request for which the rebbe is asked to pray. The formula in which a person's name is written is one's own Hebrew name, the son/daughter of one's mother's Hebrew name, such as Shimon ben Rivkah (Simeon the son of Rebecca). Hasidim believe that rebbes read supernaturally "between the lines" of a kvitl, and in every hasidic movement there are numerous anecdotes relating how the rebbe saw things that were not written in the kvitl. In most hasidic groups, the kvitl is written by the rebbe's gabbe (secretary), however sometimes the petitioner writes it him or her self. Usually, but with some exceptions, a pidyon (redemption) of cash is customarily handed to the rebbe under the kvitl, however this is not obligatory. This is considered to be the conduit through which the blessing is given, and a redemption for the soul of the petitioner. ("A gift makes its receiver glad" is given as an explanation: a blessing only comes from a joyous heart.) It is also customary to tip the gabbe, although this too is not obligatory. A Gabbai (Hebrew: גבאי) is a person who assists in the running of a synagogue and ensures that the needs are met, for example the Jewish prayer services run smoothly, or an assistant to a rabbi (particularly the secretary or personal assistant to a Hassidic Rebbe). ...
