Yale Strom: The Hasidim from Brooklytn (a Photo Essay)

Yale Strom published yesterday a bunch of great images on Facebook. It's about the Hasidim from Brooklyn, their past and present. Looking at these images it somes to my mind a neighborhood in Brooklyn that I visited in 2009, inhabited by Szatmar Hasidim, a very conservative community with roots in Transilvania. Past and present: today there are among them more and more Latin-American immigrants: children are playing together.

Let me add here another image published by Yale, and a youTube video. You'll recognize Yale among the guys there: he's wearing a red shirt, has kind of yarmulke on his head and seems to be the happiest one.

  • Hi... I know I'm a year late... but my grandfather is in that first photo and my father has been looking for a copy of this photo for years. Do you know where I can obtain an original or at least a clearer copy? I tried contacting Yale Strom via facebook but received no reply. Thanks so much for any help you can give me.
