Meet your walking group at the time and place that was given at the time of your booking, and get ready to be immersed in the Hasidic culture of Williamsburg. Follow your guide through the neighborhood and see shops, eateries, synagogues, schools, and historical sites. Along the tour, sample some traditional Hasidic foods, and learn about the contemporary Hasidic faith and value system, the history of Jewish Williamsburg, and the origin of Hasidism’s major sects, including Satmar. End your tour at a Kosher deli that serves Hasidic meats. Then it’s your choice whether to go your separate way or stay for a bite to eat (own expense).

Frieda, the tour guide, is very aware of not “annoying” the locals. On our tour, we did not feel any “ill will” from the community. In fact, she was greeted warmly when we sat down in one of the local establishments to have some lunch. If you are fascinated to learn more about the Hasidic community, you must take this tour with Frieda. I’d take the tour again, it was that good!
