The Pious Ones Download  102 A sense of connection and purpose in a changing world From the intense sectarian politics to the conflicts that arise over housing transportation schooling and gender roles The Pious Ones also chronicles the ways in which the fabric of Hasidic daily life is threatened by exposure to the wider world and also by internal fissures within its growing population What lies ahead for the Hasidim and what lies ahead for American culture and politics as these Ultra Orthodox Jews occupy a greater place in our socie. If the Hasidic community continues to grow as rapidly as it has been it will become the majority of Jews in the US later this century according to this book That is a scary thought since they are fundamentalists whose religion is completely different than mainstream Judaism in many important and unexpected ways For example regular Jews prize learning and follow all sorts of professions like other American men and women Hasidim generally can barely speak or write English and do not go to college because it s only important for men to study Torah and Talmud Women s sole purpose is to have babies so they spend their lives raising children and cleaning and cooking and they are not allowed to sing if men are in the same room and must shave themselves bald after marriage etc The way Hasidim cult worship their leaders treat people who disagree or have defected or disrespect the communities around them are appalling Altogether Yikes is an understatement They have a lot in common with the Amish started in Europe 17 18th centuries speak a distinctive language do not allow their children the education otherwise legally reuired by US and this also shows how religious groups get special treatment wear somber old fashioned clothing eschew TV etcThis book should have been about 100 pages shorter So much of it was uninteresting detail or repeat as many chapters were clearly expanded from articles the author had previously written Given the stifling nature of life for a Hasidic woman from a feminist perspective I was disappointed the author did not interview a woman who had left the Hasidic world
