Has anyone else noticed that on the Orthodox church calendars often found in the eastern US (printed by Vestal in New Jersey) the Saturday of Cheesefare Week, the day of the ascetic fathers (monks) in the liturgical books, is called the day of the holy Hasidic fathers?

Well, both are Judæo-Christian, Eastern European, bearded, mystical and have a charismatic tradition of eldership that’s passed down (in fact some claim the Hasidim got the idea of a rebbe from the Russian Orthodox старец).

But Drake Adams believes it’s not a typo but Hanukkah carried over into this Christian calendar. Perhaps it commemorates both the last legitimate Temple priests and early Greek and other Christian monks.

That's hilarious, Serge! I've never noticed that.  I will be sure to scan all future calendars for this hehe.

The funny calendar from Vestal is in three languages in four orthographies: English, Slavonic in pre-1918 Russian Cyrillic, Slavonic in Latin letters with accents (the Ruthenian way - looks like Slovak) ... and Serbian. The title 'Holy Hasidic Fathers' is a secondary note for that day only in English.

That's what I thought.  I was pretty sure which one you were talking about.  No one has it though...i'll keep searching.  Some serb's gotta have it...
