    Ger, or Gur is a Hasidic dynasty originating from Ger, the Yiddish name of Góra Kalwaria, a small town in Poland.

The rebbes who lead the movement have the family name of Alter. The founder of this group was Rabbi Yitzchak Meir Alter, known as the Chiddushei HaRim after his primary scholarly work by that title.
