Hasidic People: A Place in the New World

By Jerome R. Mintz | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

This work would not have been possible without the cooperation and assistance of a great many persons in the Hasidic community. Those who have helped are among the rank and file as well as the leadership. There are still others who are related to the Hasidic community in one way or another. I am also grateful to the dozen or so Hasidim from various courts who read chapters in manuscript and offered their criticism and comments. It is impossible to name them all here but they all have my thanks and gratitude. Many of those who aided me have diametrically opposed views from each other. Of course they are not responsible for my point of view and analyses.

Israel Friedman was an invaluable guide to the history of the Boyaner Hasidim. I am grateful to the Friedman, Brayer, and Heschel families, without whose cooperation I could not have recorded so much of the history of the Rizhin dynasty. Lubavitcher Hasidim (including Simon Jacobson, Aaron Raskin, Mendel Shemtov, Yehuda Krinsky, Avrom Flint, Barukh Jacobson, and Pinchas Korf among others) offered tremendous help and assistance. I especially thank Simon Jacobson for his critique of several chapters. I am also grateful to a number of Satmar Hasidim and a great many Hasidim from a variety of courts whose identities I must protect. I thank also Rabbi Morris Shmidman and the Council of Jewish Organizations of Borough Park, and Samuel A. Weismandel of the village of New Square. In addition to providing valuable testimony, Dr. Rashi Shapiro read and commented on the chapters on family concerns. Edwin Svigals and Lawrence Fine read the manuscript with great care and made valuable suggestions.

Martin Needelman and Nathan Lewin read and commented on chapters containing legal materials and generously made available to me a variety of legal documents. Terrence L. Olivo reviewed material concern-
