The farmlands of the Pennsylvania Dutch Country are among the most productive in the nation. But many of the farmers here are different from most Americans, different by choice. For they are the Old Order Amish and Mennonites, also known as "The Plain People." These people trace their heritage back hundreds of years, and yet, despite all the time that has passed and the many changes that have taken place in society, they still live and work much as their forefathers did. Their families and their farms are their top priorities, second only to their God. The Amish are very devout in their faith. They believe in the literal interpretation and application of Scripture as the Word of God. They take seriously the Biblical commands to separate themselves from the things of the world. There are more than 20 different varieties of Amish and Mennonites in this area. We will be referring primarily to the more conservative Old Order Amish, who still hold to the original doctrines and traditions of their faith. The Amish wear plain clothing and do not permit worldly grooming. young men are clean-shaven, and married men wear untrimmed beards, but are not allowed mustaches. The women wear head-coverings in obedience to Scripture, and follow the Biblical command that beauty should come not from outward adornment, but from the inner self. The children dress the same as the adults. You will see their horse-drawn carriages on your drive through the countryside. Church members are not permitted to own cars because they allow easier access to the worldly influences of society. The Amish here drive their "Lancaster Gray" carriages which are all identical in style and color. Because the Bible teaches against open displays of wealth, all status symbols are discouraged. This is another reason for the uniformity in Amish carriages and clothing styles. The Amish place a high value on farming and farm-related occupations. Closeness to the soil and to nature is important to them in providing a wholesome setting for their families. They view the city as a center of non-productive lifestyles, and feel the Christian life can best be maintained in a rural environment, with only minimal influence from the outside world. Out in their fields, you are likely to find a farmer walking behind his team of horses or mules. While some gas or diesel powered equipment such as milking machines are permitted, tractors are not allowed in the fields. Despite these restrictions, Amish farms are well known for their productivity. You can identify the Amish homes by their lack of electrical powerlines, a buggy in the yard, and a windmill alongside the farm building. Since they do not use electricity, these windmills and waterwheels provide the needed power for pumping water. Gas stoves, refrigerators, and kerosene lamps are standard in Amish homes, while central heating is considered an extravagance. The family plays an important role in Amish society. Amish families average seven children, and each child is given his own specific responsibilities. An Amish dialect known as Pennsylvania Dutch is spoken within the home and among fellow Amish. Amish children attend one-room schoolhouses until they meet the state's compulsory education requirements at age 15. With the practical training and work experience they receive at home, any additional education is thought to be unnecessary. Children also receive a thorough Bible training within the home. Amish parents feel they are responsible to God for the spiritual welfare of their children. When the children get married, their parents will help them get started on their own. The youngest son will eventually take over the family farm, and an addition called a Grossdaddi House will be built onto the main house for their parents. Just as Amish parents feel obligated to take good care of their children, so children feel a responsibility to look after their older parents. Seldom are older family members sent to nursing homes. There is a strong community spirit within the Amish membership, and they often reach out to help members in need. Barn- raisings are an example of their love and service to one another. The Plain People trace their origin back to the Protestant Reformation in Europe, where there was an emphasis on returning to the purity of the New Testament Church. One group of reformers rejected the popular concept of infant baptism, and became known as Anabaptists. Menno Simons was a leader of this movement, and his followers came to be called "Mennonites".

My wife and I visited a most scenic area of Lancaster County, PA. There we saw and met people of the Amish faith. We experienced the feel of the real Amish home-life from one of their buggies driven by an Amish person who graciously answered our inquisitive questions about their culture. We saw Amish men and women on their leg-powered bicycle-like scooters. Their well-kept and picturesque farms were a delight for our cameras. We shopped in two stores where the Amish buy their clothing and food. The Amish are a group of traditionalist Christian church fellowships. The Amish are known for simple living, plain dress, and reluctance to adopt many conveniences of modern technology. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amish

They typically wear plain clothing with nothing as fancy as a button or a zipper, travel by horse-drawn buggy and shun modern conveniences like electricity. It's that Old World charm of the Amish that draws 8 million tourists - and $1.9 billion - each year to Pennsylvania's Lancaster County, home of the nation's largest Amish community of 31,000. What the Amish don't do, supporters say, is tote rifles as part of a violent protection racket - as depicted in the television show "Amish Mafia" - or regularly defy their religion, like in "Breaking Amish" and "Breaking Amish: Brave New World." And, Amish horror stories are not the norm, despite the plot lines of the upcoming "Amish Haunting."Last week, more than a dozen state officials, including Governor Tom Corbett and Congressmen Joe Pitts and Patrick Meehan, issued a statement citing "bigoted" and "negative, inaccurate and potentially damaging portrayal of (the) Amish" and demanding an end to the shows.The Lancaster Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Convention and Visitors Bureau, and a regional interfaith coalition of clergy echoed those comments. http://news.yahoo.com/tourism-vs-reality-tv-exploiting-pennsylvanias-amish-120806390.html http://www.wochit.com

Right under The Ball@ Times Square New York City May 20th 2017 This was recorded May 20th 2017 The Amish (/ˈɑːmɪʃ/; Pennsylvania German: Amisch, German: Amische) are a group of traditionalist Christian church fellowships with Swiss Anabaptist origins. They are closely related to, but distinct from, Mennonite churches. The Amish are known for simple living, plain dress, and reluctance to adopt many conveniences of modern technology. The history of the Amish church began with a schism in Switzerland within a group of Swiss and Alsatian Anabaptists in 1693 led by Jakob Ammann. Those who followed Ammann became known as Amish. In the early 18th century, many Amish and Mennonites emigrated to Pennsylvania for a variety of reasons. Today, the most traditional descendants of the Amish continue to speak Pennsylvania German, also known as "Pennsylvania Dutch", although a dialect of Swiss German is used by Old Order Amish in the Adams County, Indiana area. As of 2000, over 165,000 Old Order Amish lived in the United States and about 1,500 lived in Canada. A 2008 study suggested their numbers had increased to 227,000, and in 2010 a study suggested their population had grown by 10 percent in the past two years to 249,000, with increasing movement to the West. Most of the Amish continue to have 6–7 children while benefiting from the major decrease in infant and maternal mortality in the 20th century. Between 1992 and 2013, the Amish population increased by 120%, while the US population increased by 23%.[better source needed] Amish church membership begins with baptism, usually between the ages of 16 and 25. It is a requirement for marriage within the Amish church. Once a person is baptized with the church, he or she may marry only within the faith. Church districts average between 20 and 40 families, and worship services are held every other Sunday in a member's home. The district is led by a bishop and several ministers and deacons. The rules of the church, the Ordnung, must be observed by every member and cover most aspects of day-to-day living, including prohibitions or limitations on the use of power-line electricity, telephones, and automobiles, as well as regulations on clothing. Most Amish do not buy commercial insurance or participate in Social Security. As present-day Anabaptists, Amish church members practice nonresistance and will not perform any type of military service. The Amish value rural life, manual labor and humility, all under the auspices of living what they interpret to be God's word. Members who do not conform to these community expectations and who cannot be convinced to repent are excommunicated. In addition to excommunication, members may be shunned, a practice that limits social contacts to shame the wayward member into returning to the church. Almost 90 percent of Amish teenagers choose to be baptized and join the church. During adolescence rumspringa ("running around") in some communities, nonconforming behavior that would result in the shunning of an adult who had made the permanent commitment of baptism, may meet with a degree of forbearance. Amish church groups seek to maintain a degree of separation from the non-Amish world, i.e. American and Canadian society. There is generally a heavy emphasis on church and family relationships. They typically operate their own one-room schools and discontinue formal education after grade eight, at age 13/14. Until the children turn 16, they have vocational training under the tutelage of their parents, community, and the school teacher.

The Pennsylvania Dutch left Germany hundreds of years ago and are a fascinating subculture of the United States. Many people of heard of the Amish, but might not completely understand what exactly this community is beyond the fact that they wear strange clothing and don't have TVs. Which is understandable given how closed off this community can be. However, I am SO lucky to be able to know Doug Madenford, a member of the Pennsylvania Dutch community and while he isn't Amish and will claim to not be an "expert" (though I would challenge that assertion) he knows a LOT about the Amish. Join me as I talk to Doug Madenford about The Pennsylvania Dutch and the Amish so that we can better understand this group of people beyond their clothing and the ridiculous reality tv shows in which they've been featured. Check out Doug's channel!! https://www.youtube.com/user/dmadenford and his website http://padutch101.com Hi! I'm Kelly and I am an American who lived in Germany for 18 wonderful months. While I lived abroad before in Turkey and had done quite a bit of traveling beforehand, those 18 months in Germany definitely broadened my perspective of Germany, Europe, and even the US in so many different ways! I wanted to share my perceptions with you guys through YouTube so that maybe you can gain context to things you've heard about, or learn new information or a different perspective, or maybe this is everything you've heard before and further confirms your world view.

The Amish (Pennsylvania Dutch: Amisch, German: Amische), sometimes referred to as Amish Mennonites, are a group of Christian church fellowships that form a subgroup of the Mennonite churches. The Amish are known for simple living, plain dress, and reluctance to adopt many conveniences of modern technology. Die Amischen sind eine täuferisch-protestantische Glaubensgemeinschaft. Sie haben ihre Wurzeln in der reformatorischen Täuferbewegung Mitteleuropas. Im Jahre 1693 spalteten sich die Amischen von der Gruppe der Mennoniten ab. Im Jahr 2010 lebten sie in 28 Staaten der Vereinigten Staaten sowie im kanadischen Ontario in 427 Siedlungen und 1826 Gemeindedistrikten. Amische führen ein stark im Agrarbereich verwurzeltes Leben und sind bekannt dafür, dass sie viele Seiten des technischen Fortschritts ablehnen und Neuerungen nur nach sorgfältiger Überlegung akzeptieren. Die Amischen legen großen Wert auf eine Familie mit klar vorgegebenen Geschlechtsrollen, Gemeinschaft und Abgeschiedenheit von der Außenwelt. Wie andere täuferische Kirchen praktizieren die Amischen ausschließlich die Bekenntnistaufe und lehnen entsprechend der Bergpredigt Gewalt und das Schwören von Eiden ab. Sie stammen überwiegend von Südwestdeutschen oder Deutschschweizern ab und sprechen untereinander meist Pennsylvaniadeutsch. Les Amish sont une communauté anabaptiste présente en Amérique du Nord, vivant de façon simple et à l'écart de la société moderne. La première règle amish est : « Tu ne te conformeras point à ce monde qui t'entoure ». La majorité des Amish appartiennent à l'Ancien Ordre (Old Order), très rigoureux, qui regroupe 47 000 personnes environ en Pennsylvanie, 55 000 en Ohio, 37 000 en Indiana et 59 000 dans d'autres États aux États-Unis (ainsi qu'en Ontario, au Canada). Gli Amish sono una Confessione religiosa di origini cristiano protestante anabattista, nata in Svizzera nel Cinquecento e stabilitasi negli Stati Uniti d'America dal Settecento. Attualmente la più grande comunità Amish si trova in Ohio. Da alcuni studiosi di religioni vengono considerati come Protestanti Conservatori, e da altri come appartenenti all'ampia famiglia delle chiese libere insieme con i Mennoniti, i Fratelli Quaccheri ed altre, poiché con queste hanno numerosi punti dottrinali in comune. Parlano tradizionalmente un dialetto tedesco chiamato Tedesco della Pennsylvania. Amiske (norsk: en amisk mann, en amisk kvinne, amiske/amiskene/amiske mennesker, navnet kommer av grunnleggeren Jakob Ammanns etternavn) er en trosretning innenfor protestantisk (anabaptistisk/mennonittisk) kristendom som er utbredt i USA. De lever i et bondesamfunn uten moderne hjelpemidler som strøm og biler. Det er omkring 198 000 amiske i 20 delstater i USA. Flesteparten bor i Pennsylvania, Ohio og Indiana. De fleste amiske (mennonittene) snakker en tysk dialekt kjent som Pennsylvania-tysk, av dem selv kalt deitsch. De Amish is een mennonitische, rigoristische protestantse geloofsgemeenschap in Noord-Amerika. Het zijn volgelingen van de Zwitser Jakob Amman (1644 - 1730) die in 1693 brak met de minder radicale mennonitische hoofdstroom. Door geloofsvervolgingen in Zwitserland gedwongen trokken veel Amish naar het platteland van de Elzas en de Palts. Kleine groepen kwamen in Nederland, Polen en Rusland terecht. Vanuit Europa emigreerden veel Amish gemeenschappen vanaf 1737 naar Noord-Amerika omdat hun levenswijze in Europa vaak nauwelijks getolereerd werd. Anderen sloten zich in de loop der tijd weer aan bij de mennonieten of andere doperse bewegingen. Het aantal Amish wordt geschat op 230.000 tot 250.000. Door de traditioneel grote gezinnen groeit deze bevolkingsgroep anno 2011 nog steeds snel. Los amish (pronunciación AFI: [ɑmɪʃ]) son una agrupación religiosa cristiana de doctrina anabaptista, conocidos principalmente por su estilo de vida sencilla, vestimenta modesta y tradicional y su resistencia a adoptar comodidades modernas. Son alrededor de 230.000 personas, principalmente en 22 asentamientos en los Estados Unidos de América y en Ontario, Canadá. Amish é um grupo religioso cristão anabatista baseado nos Estados Unidos e Canadá. São conhecidos por seus costumes conservadores, como o uso restrito de equipamentos eletrônicos, inclusive telefones e automóveis. А́миши (англ. Amish, нем. Amische, пенсил.-нем. Amisch) — религиозное движение, зародившееся как самое консервативное направление в меннонитстве. 阿米什人（Amish）是美國和加拿大安大略省的一群基督新教再洗禮派門諾會信徒（又稱亞米胥派），以拒絕汽車及電力等現代設施，過著簡樸的生活而聞名。

Who Are the Amish? Mark Louden, Professor of German Recorded: November 21, 2013 The Old Order Amish are one of the most familiar religious groups in America today. Spread out across thirty U.S. states (including Wisconsin) and Ontario, the Amish population is doubling every twenty years. While many outsiders are aware of certain visible aspects of Amish culture, including their distinctive dress, use of horse-and-buggy for transportation, and limitations on technology, in this presentation we will explore the faith and values that are at the heart of their society. Along the way we will clarify a number of misunderstandings about the Amish, including many propagated by popular media. Mark L. Louden is a Professor of German at the UW--Madison and co-directs the Max Kade Institute for German-American Studies there. A fluent speaker of Pennsylvania Dutch, he received his undergraduate and graduate education at Cornell University and taught at the University of Texas at Austin before joining the UW faculty in 2000. His main research and teaching interests include Germanic linguistics and German-American studies. He is the author of the forthcoming book, Pennsylvania Dutch: The Story of an American Language.

Not far from the hustle and bustle of city life live the Amish of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. These deeply religious people shun the conveniences of modern society to live a simpler life where transportation is a horse and buggy and horsepower really means horsepower. The Amish are very devout and take seriously the biblical commands to separate themselves from the things of the world including electricity. Power comes from propane, kerosene, wood, coal, or natural gas. As the world around the peaceful farmland changes, so have some of the traditions of the Amish. Transportation is no longer limited to horse-drawn buggies. "There is a division among the Amish over the automobile. One group got automobiles, another group kept the horse and buggy. we just simply name them old order -- drive the horse and buggy, and the new order -- drive the automobiles. They have electric, they have meeting houses and they don't have green shades." But many traditions remain. Amish children attend one-room schoolhouses through grade eight and farming is the mainstay of Amish life. There are normally two horses on a farm for buggies. Several mules are kept for farming. Milking is one of the most important sources of income on the farm. Many Amish leaders believe their separation from the outside world strengthens their community. And that community is thriving. Despite what many on the outside would describe as a backwards lifestyle, the Amish population in Lancaster County has almost tripled over the past half century.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Jacquie Hess, Aunt of Roberts' Wife: "We just talked about what had happened and how it could happen and that they have forgiven what has taken place and that there is no hard feelings. And they want us to just all pull together as a community and still just keep our trust in God to help us all get through everything." 8. Low angle shot of funeral procession STORYLINE: A procession of 34 buggies and carriages carried mourners to a hilltop cemetery in Nickel Mines, Pennsylvania on Thursday as the Amish community buried the first of five girls killed by a gunman inside their tiny one-room schoolhouse. Two state troopers on horseback led the cortege, followed by a long horse-drawn buggy carrying the body of seven-year-old Naomi Rose Ebersol. The route wove past the home of Charles Carl Roberts IV, the 32-year-old milk truck driver who took the girls hostage on Monday morning, tied them up and then shot them. It was the first in a series of funerals on Thursday for victims of the West Nickel Mines Amish school shooting. All roads leading into the village of Nickel Mines were blocked by state police so the Amish could gather privately in homes to remember Ebersol, 13-year-old Marian Fisher, and sisters Mary Liz Miller, who was eight, and Lena Miller, who was seven. The funeral for a fifth girl, 12-year-old Anna Mae Stoltzfus, was scheduled for Friday. In Lancaster County, there were prayer services for the victims at area churches, but the traditional funerals for the girls where an expected 300 to 500 people we due to attend were closed. Amish custom calls for simple wooden caskets, narrow at the head and feet and wider in the middle. An Amish girl is typically laid to rest in a white dress, a cape, and a white prayer-covering on her head, said funeral director Philip W. Furman. The Amish have actually reached out to the family of the gunman, who committed suicide during the attack in the schoolhouse. Jacquie Hess, an aunt of Roberts' wife, said members of the Amish community comforted the Roberts family hours after the shooting and extended forgiveness to them. Among Roberts' survivors are his wife and three children. Roberts' relatives may even receive money from a fund established to help victims and their families, said Kevin King, executive director of Mennonite Disaster services, an agency managing the donations. The attack on the school began Monday morning when Roberts took over the one-room school, sent the adults and boys out and bound the 10 remaining girls at the blackboard. He was in the school for about an hour before he shot his hostages and turned the gun on himself as police closed in. Five young girls survived the schoolhouse attack but were seriously injured. County coroner Gary Kirchner said one of those girls - a six-year-old who has been treated at Penn State Children's Hospital in Hershey, Pennsylvania - was expected to be taken off life support so that she could be brought home.

Full Time RV Family - A day out in Pennsylvania Dutch Amish Country We couldn't stay in Pennsylvania Dutch country without visiting the Amish. So we drove about 45 minutes to the Amish Village in Lancaster. As we drove around the area where we were staying we passed many Amish farms so naturally we wanted to know more about them. It was fascinating walking through the Amish house and seeing how these people live and the hardships that they put themselves under. On the bus tour the driver, who seemed besotted with the Amish, showed us how to determine if a farm was an Amish farm, what the small booths were on each Amish property, what the Amish did for fun, how to tell if a man or woman was married and how the Amish dated.

Since I played golf while the others went on this tour here is Karen's blog about the day in Lancaster with the Amish people........ They are governed district by district where the rules may differ, however women don't get to get any say in anything but are valued to have as many children as God provides. The 'rules' do not allow for individuality, so clothing is plain with no embellishments and no electricity supply to houses. That way you don't have to 'keep up with the Joneses' since you can't buy the latest gadgets or appliances. Interestingly they have permitted adapting appliances for use with either propane gas or air compression. We did see large numbers of solar panels, so apparently it's ok to use power you can store, just so long as it's off the grid. No telephones to the house, but apparently many homes have a 'phone box' near the boundary of their property in the event of an emergency. Businesses are permitted to use electricity, phones (including mobiles) and increasingly the Internet as otherwise they would not be commercially competitive. Children are all educated in single room schools by Amish and only up to 8th grade so there are no Amish doctors, lawyers or dentists, however the Amish make use of all available medical facilities and current treatments. As a result they have improved life expectancies and in fact have increased their proportion of the population by 120% in 20 years. They are spread over several states in the US as well as in Canada with new communities established as need to expand arises. We saw several farmers working their fields and no working by GPS here! Still using horse or mule drawn ploughs, tillers, harvesters and the best was a muck spreader! No diesel tractors allowed in the fields, but we did see several small bob cats carting timber about so couldn't really see how that works. No owning or driving motor cars, however they travel inside someone else's, so may hire a taxi or van to go shopping. Gas irons and the old Singer sewing machines and if propane is not allowed the they use wood range stoves. I think the whole idea about the electricity or propane use inside a house is about pride or one upmanship. It's a bit hard to outdo the neighbour if you're reduced to using a washboard and wringer...

AMISH BUGGY RIDE. It was a cool Amish Buggy Ride. The Amish are a group of traditionalist Christian church fellowships with Swiss German Anabaptist origins. The Amish are known for simple living, plain dress, and reluctance to adopt many conveniences of modern technology. #travelvlog #pennsylvania #lancaster #amish
