The right way to make a distinction between different Haredi sects

A writer for the Brooklyn Eagle ideally points out the differences between some Haredi sects:
In New York, the Hasidim are the most visible Ultra-Orthodox Jews, although there are others, such as the Breuers in Washington Heights. There are significant distinctions between the Hasidic sects in Brooklyn. For example, the Satmar in Williamsburg are very anti-Israel, while the Lubavitchers in Crown Heights are pro-Israel. Also, the Lubavitchers actively engage in outreach to non-Orthodox Jews, seeking to educate them about religious observance, while the Satmar and many other sects basically separate themselves from outsiders.
Well said. While the Lubavitch obviously aren't perfect, they certainly have better visions than the Satmar.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
