My family is from there, but we've lost our ancestral minhag due to secularization and subsequent return to different sects within orthodox Judaism. I am just curious in reclaiming my ancestral traditions.

  • @Danno, the shtetlach, as a general rule, each had some unique minhagim which did not travel to neighboring communities. Even in Germany, in the centres of the Ashkenazi community, Speyer, Worms, Mainz, and Frankfurt often had differing minhagim and variants in nusach, despite cities' relative closeness. – Noach MiFrankfurt Jun 23 '15 at 1:39
