Do you want to scratch beneath the stereotypes and understand your Hasidic neighbors? I was raised in the Satmar Hasidic community and specialize in the Williamsburg enclave. I study the community with a mix of fascination and warmth. My focus is of an amateur sociologist’s rather than of an evangelist’s. I explore how the infrastructure, history, values and customs all come together to make the anti-modern way of life sustainable. I like to mix big-picture systemic analysis with zaftig storytelling. I like to challenge you while still giving you a terrific time. I can speak to many aspects of the community and let your areas of interest guide our visit. Some food tasting is included in the tour.
During this time, when I get almost no regular tour booking, it is very difficult to run regular public tours. I prefer to give private tours for now. I will work with you to make it financially feasible.
