"Named After American Cities!"
Gandalin commenting on Clevelander Chassidus:
Do you think Pittsburgher, Clevelander, and Bostoner are any more grotesque than Tchernobler, Satmarer, or Munkatcher?
The Rebbes bring great kavod to the cities fortunate enough to be named for their courts!
In our brilliant and illustrious Jewish history, think of how the towns of Kovno, Vilno, Berditchev, Pumbeditha, Carpentras, and so on and so forth, resonate with the glory of the Torah that was learned and expounded in locations that otherwise would be rather barren of more than local interest.
Even were European culture and its American extension to disappear, the names of these cities would not be forgotten in the annals of the eternal people.
