NachNachim Forming Political Party To Run For Knesset

In the craziest, and perhaps the most interesting, announcement I have heard in a very long time, the NachNachim division of Breslav, the guys who dance through the streets and on the roofs of panel vans with music blasting, have announced that they will be forming a new political party and running for Knesset in the upcoming elections. They even think that, despite their relatively small numbers, they can achieve a whopping 10 seats.

According to the article in Ladaat, the group has chosen the letter 'Nun' (נ) as their party letter for voting, after the name of Rebbe Nachman. I would have expected them to choose ננח or נחנח or maybe אומן, but נ works as well.

They say their goal is to bring holiness to the Knesset, and to obtain funding for Breslav institutions. They too, along with various other sub-sectors of the Haredi community (such as the "new haredim", such as the Yerushalmim, Rav Amnon Yitzchak's people, and others), claim that the reps in UTJ and SHAS only work each for their own sector, while ignoring the needs of baal teshuva community.

One law we can be pretty sure they will work for passing, if they do actually run a party and succeed in getting into the Knesset, is a law legalizing marijuana.


(can you imagine these guys in the Knesset, drafting laws for the country? I love it!)

  2. is a law legalizing marijuana.
    What a bullshit way to end a post about any Hassidim. The Na Nach's I know don't toke up.

  3. what do you have against toking up? I am in favor of legalizing marijuana.
    Besides for that, I know some who smoke pot fairly regularly, and I have come across many more who were clearly toked up....

  4. Why do we need another ridiculous party in the Knesset?

  5. I don't think you need to be too worried about this ridiculous party getting in, despite their prediction of winning 10 seats . it would be fun to see though.....

  6. What I think about smoking is irrelevant to making a wild generalization about this group of Jews. You make it seem that it's part of being a baal tshuva Breslever as if they are all pot heads. This ain't about being the Green leaf party.

  7. Na Nach's are not an Israeli Jewish version of Rastafarians.

  8. NaNachs don't use marijuana. They may be crazy, but they are law-abiding, good people.
    Oh - and even if you know one who does, EVERY group in society has people who use marijuana. That doesn't mean that the entire group does.
    And NO, I am NOT Breslov.

  9. Maybe if you were Breslov, you would be more aware that the majority of knockknockers are generally high.
