Chasidic Judaism is broken up into various communities around the world. I was just curious if any of these communities have ever moved to "consolidate" and absorb into a new larger community?
Obviously, there would need to be agreements about aligning Halacha interpretations but assuming the differences were slight enough and each community was majority in approval, has such a merger ever happened?
Perhaps the families of two head Rabbis of different communities married into one another? Circumstances such as this.
