Next time I visit @ExGingi I will stop in Williamsburg and walk around. Will I be safe?  :)

Stop by to say hello! There are literally hundreds of tourists every weekend brought by professional tours. Often too many :)

Satmar, like the rest of chassidic schools, do have secular studies in the afternoon.

First and chief language for chassidim generally is Yiddish. English is spoken as well, predominantly by the girls. To what extent and age, YMMV.

IINM the only schools that don't teach ANY English can be found in Crown Heights.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Mermelstein's have gone downhill IMHO. Must be Covid-19 fallout.

Never been either, but from the sounds of things when you dig into it, what people outside of Williamsburg* like about it is not the food but the nostalgia.
*not saying Williamsburg is different, I just don't know

That's commendable! If only they would stick with Yiddish entirely then it would be completely praiseworthy.. But hey, they gotta proselytize so I can't judge them :P

Correct. They pride on making heimish Hungarian style food, not cheap fast food, which is true but nothing high end at all. It draws much more outsiders than locals. Locals have heimish food for dinner every night.

There are probably over dozen DDF members who can easily trace back to the Chasam Sofer (including myself).

+1
Let's start counting :)

The smaller schools that my kids (boys and girls) attend make use of Yiddish front and center.

Not seeing anything that would explain this. Referring to a pig as a דבר אחר doesn’t mean you can’t/shouldn’t look at it.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

We all have our beliefs. No reason to attack them.

Quote
34. Is it right to quarrel about difference in Religion?
No; belief is a matter over which every person must be permitted to decide in his own conscience, according to the knowledge which has been given him; it is wrong to hate or despise any one because he has a different belief from ourselves.
