We toured the Hasidic community of Williamsburg with Frieda on Christmas Day and I can't think of a better way to celebrate. It felt like we were walking with a friend -- who easily and eloquently described the day to day life in this community,...More

Frieda led a wonderfully informative and warm tour. I think it's so special that Frieda is doing this, because without her, this opportunity to learn more about the Satmar community in such a nuanced, personal, and immediate way might not exist at all. I loved...More
