Gerer Rebbes Synagogue and Ger Rebbes Graves:
Góra Kalwaria, Poland

by | Dec 23, 2019 | 0 comments

On the way from Warsaw to Lublin, we made a stop in the town of Gora Kalwaria, better known in the Chassidic circles as the city of Ger.  Even though it was nighttime, we were able to make this stop, since during this trip we were with the Project Mesorah Poland Tour and the leaders knew exactly where to go despite the darkness.

We disembarked from the bus at a cute little patch of green Park which I later learned is calledSkwer pomnik Adama i Ewy. We walked a couple of minutes until we reached the courtyard of the Synagogue of the Rebbes of Ger. The synagogue is not open to the public, but we saw the courtyard that was used during the Holidays to accommodate all the chassidim.

From there we made our way over to the Jewish Cemetery (not in walking distance). At the cemetery are the graves of two of the famous Rebbes of Ger: the Chidushi Harim and the Sefas Emes.
