Enter the world of Hasidic Williamsburg, and be immersed in its history, culture and traditions. Join a walking tour led by New York City Licensed tour guides and students of contemporary Hasidism. Our guides grew up in the Hasidic community and continued to explore Hasidic life and society after leaving the community. We lead you through these streets and tell its unusual history with the sensitivity of an insider and the objectivity of a professional and the empathy of our shared humanity.
Our visitors are led through the neighborhood of shops, eateries, synagogues, schools and historical sites. They learn about the faith and value system of contemporary Hasidism, the history of Jewish Williamsburg, and the origin of Hasidism and its major sects, including Satmar. Groups learn about traditions of Hasidic marriage and family, the cultures of Hasidic women, men and children, dress, language and education in lively conversations, with emphasis on understanding and learning. Questions are always encouraged - we are eager to share. We want to hear your ideas, and we want to leave you with new thoughts and new ways of thinking about Hasidic culture.
