9780820407593: Satmar: Two Generations of an Urban Island

Satmar is a Hasidic community of Jews originating in an area that once belonged to Hungary, parts of which are incorporated in neighboring countries. They have settled in the United States in the '40s and '50s. Determined to resist assimilation, they succeeded, not only for themselves, but managed to retain virtually all their offspring within the fold. Changes nevertheless occurred especially since the change of leadership. In this book, the author discusses both the continuity and change offering a sociological analysis of both vital processes. The new edition brings their story up to date, projecting some prospects for the future.
