    What to Expect
    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).
