AMOS - Amsterdam Modern Orthodoxe Sjoe
AMOS (Amsterdam Modern Orthodox Shull) is a young and vibrant community. Three years ago from within the traditional “einheidsgemeente” a small group of mainly young families started up a shull along the lines of the modern orthodox philosophy that has in this short time grown to be the largest orthodox minjan in the Netherlands.
With a commitment to excellence, we value an unwavering devotion to Halacha (Jewish Law) and tradition whilst embracing and contributing towards the positive components and aspects of modernity and are accepting of the totality of the Jewish community no matter what level of observance, knowledge or commitment.
We have deep respect for society at large and recognize our obligation to contribute positively by providing a warm, welcoming and non-judgmental atmosphere in which Jews of all levels of knowledge and observance will be attracted and inspired. We do this by trying to create a feeling of family in which every individual is appreciated and valued and invited to participate and contribute towards our community.
We also hold true to and embody the great religious significance and redemptive nature of the State and land of Israel.

Chabad at the Hague
The Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, in 1994 need to trade this life for a higher existence. More than forty years, the Rebbe led a Hasidic movement, which under his leadership has become one of the most famous and largest movements in contemporary traditional Judaism.
About three hundred years ago in Russia Chassidism originated. The Ba'al Shem Tov (1698-1760), the first Hasidic Rebbe saw that there was a large group of people within Judaism who was barely able lack of Jewish knowledge to maintain itself as a jew. The difficult material conditions, anti-Semitism and pogroms were doing it almost impossible for knowledge enrichment. But Judaism without knowledge is like a body without a soul.
The Jewish intelligentsia of that time had little interest in this issue and was mainly concerned with enriching their knowledge. From this came the famous Jewish study centers, such as those in Vilna, continued. The Ba'al Shem Tov and his closest followers, all great Jewish scholars, proceeded, initial disguised as shoemakers, traders and vagrants, among their fellow Jews and conferred secretly support materially and spiritually. Thus was born the infrastructure from which the Hasidic movement shot. The simple, poor, ignorant Jews evolve and, in turn, went to work to support others as they had learned of the Ba'al Shem Tov. The movement grew and the idea that in addition to the Talmud Study the prayer and the study of Jewish philosophy are essential, gained ground.
The Ba'al Shem Tov was succeeded by Rabbi Dov Ber of Mezeritch (? -1772). In the period after he took a cleavage site in the Hasidic movement. The students of Rabbi Dov Ber had spread across Russia and Poland and formed their own circles. After the death of Rabbi Dov Ber developed these circles on their own way.
They were obviously based on the teachings of the Ba'al Shem Tov, but are distinguished by specific features and an individual approach. The movements that arose as a result of this "split" are absolutely not comparable to the various movements within Christianity. After all, within Christianity existence dogmatic differences between the groups, while that in the hasidic currents is not the case. The Hasidic movements namely are all based on a doctrine, namely, the Torah and tradition, or more correctly, the Written Learning (Tanach) and the Oral Torah (Talmud).
