Pre-booked this as had become aware of this group of people when I was in Brooklyn about four years ago. The Rabbi who led the tour (only about eleven of us) was warm and friendly and very approachable. Everyone we met was open and friendly, despite leading what appeared to be a very controlled and insular life. The synagogue trip was a real eye-opener as not a bit what I expected it to be - clearly it is where everything happens! Go if you are interested. I did not come away with any real insight into WHY people choose to live in this way.

To explore a different culture with soul and values that lifts up the spirit, go to Brooklyn. Nothing I have seen in London, Rome, Barcelona or Paris left me with a more enduring sense of the varied culture and religious perspectives with roots in distant past but still highly relevant in today's world. The tour is educational and enjoyable and suitable for all ages. Not to be missed.

We took the subway from midtown Manhattan to Brooklyn for this fascinating behind the scenes tour....subway with transfer only took 40 minutes. We had a well versed chassidic man lead us. This tour took us to services, a mikvah and more. The 2 grandmas from AZ highly recommend this experience.
