Definition of Lubavitcher in English:



  • A member of a Hasidic community founded in the 1700s by Rabbi Shneour Zalman.

    • ‘After the burial, some Lubavitchers left, others continued to say Tehillim.’
    • ‘His sister, he points out, is a Lubavitcher with seven children in Miami Beach.’
    • ‘Although some Lubavitchers were reluctant to publicly admit it, many held that their leader, Menachem Schneerson, was the messiah and they were waiting for him to reveal himself.’
