Living proof of the sustaining power of religious culture, New York’s flourishing Hasidic communities represent a unique example of a society inextricably linked to its past. Maud B. Weiss and Michel Neumeister, two German photojournalists, have recorded the daily life of the Satmar community, visiting the synagogue and the yeshiva, observing family and business activities, documenting the close-knit web of life in the home and on the streets of the neighborhood. This is a moving portrait of a community that has simply refused to go along with the rush of modernity, a community centered on faith, family, and tradition.
