I personally see no problem with what Satmar did. They lobbied for the land and they got it. Black and Latino leaders could have done the same.
I would love to see Mrs. Freier become the role model for all Hasidic women – and not just for those like the ones she attended school with.
The extreme emphasis on tznius (modesty) has even led to husbands and wives being buried in separate locations.
My harsh criticism is reserved for extremist behavior that is a result of those Hashkafos – even if it is from my own.
