Rabbi Schneur Zalman Schneerson founded Lubavitch Chassidus but what nusach did his father Boruch follow?

    This is a comment: (why can't I leave comments??) you can even ask the same question about Rabbi Schneur Zalman himself. he only put his nusach together later on in life. what nusach did he pray till his own nusach was finalized? – larry909 Nov 18 '16 at 12:29

    Rabbi Schneur Zalman Boruchovitch, his son the Mittler Rebbe's last name was Schneuri, and the Tzemach Tzedek was called Schneerson. The father, Boruch, was a student of the Bal Shem Tov, but his family was from Bohemia originally. If he was davening with early Chassidim, then he was probably using some sort of Chassidic nusach like Sefard. His family most likely used Ashkenaz before. – David Kenner Nov 18 '16 at 12:37

    @DavidKenner, if he was from Böhm, he likely followed a variant of the old Minhog Österreich, as was followed in Prague. (Minhog Österreich eventually split and developed into Minhogei Polin/Lita) – Noach MiFrankfurt Nov 18 '16 at 14:00

    More like Boruch Schneerfather. (Schneur Zalman Schneerself?) – Double AA Nov 18 '16 at 14:56
