Etymology of the name GADAR.
Meaning of the baby name GADAR.


GADAR.  Armenian name, probably derived from the name of the Palestinian city, meaning "highest point" or "summit."

ZEITOON.—This ever-interesting town is especially so this years,—this year of the great fire,—which has been followed by a religious awakening such as has not been seen there before.  Gadar, the girl who last year was reported as going about among the women teaching them to read, continued her work until the fire in August scattered the people into the vineyards on the hillsides... (Life and Light for Woman, v.18, 1888)

... Said R. Joseph: Whence do I adduce this teaching?  From the following Boraitha: "Rabbi permitted the inhabitants of Gadar to descend to Hamtan but forbade the people of Hamtan to ascend to Gadar."  Why did Rabbi decree thus?  We must assume, because the inhabitants of Gadar (who lived above the people of Hamtan on the slope of a mountain) made a partition at the foot of their city while the inhabitants of the city of Hamtan did not make a partition at the foot of their city; hence Gadar which had a partition as safe from falling, and the legal limit, which was measured from any part of the city included Hamtan, but the people of Hamtan, which had no partition and was consequently not safe, could measure their legal limits onlly from their houses and thus it did not include the city of Gadar. (New Edition of the Babylonian Talmud, v.3, 1897)
