My ancestors were Galitzianer Chassidim, and I'm trying to figure out the minhag of Galitziana in regards to waiting between eating meat and milk. Does anyone know what the minhag is?
Six hours. That's the default, what you'd see in "Poland", which included Galicia back then.
Three hours is German and British; one is Dutch; Sephardic practices vary widely.
(I also happen to know people with strong Galitzianer roots, and they keep six!)
I am of Galitzian roots and we wait 6 hours. Ashkenazic Jews in general didn't used to wait six hours, based on the Rama it was accepted to wait 6 hours. Ashreinu!
