Walking amongst the community and seeing the dress, etiquette and daily lifestyle first hand while listening to Frieda explain it...was a culture shock and enthralling. Frieda's honesty and respect...More

Stepping in to the Hasidic part of Williamsburg was like stepping in to a whole different country. The people were all dressed in traditional Hasidic clothes, there were no smartphones and the children were playing in the middle of the street. The Kaparot Ceremony had...More
