In the "shtetl" the Christian competition was quite visible as they used anti-Semitic practices against the Jews. However, when such a Jewish "baal-melachah" (craftsman) as Reb. Itshe Fenster appeared on Fri-day evening at the Bejt Hamidrash for "Kabalath Shabbat" a different man was revealed. You saw a good-looking Hassidic Jew with traditional Hassidic clothing, dressed in a black silk coat "Chalath", bound with a "Gartel" (silk belt worn during prayers) with a wide, fur-edged hat a "Straimel ...
