Hasidic school suing village
South Blooming Grove — A Hasidic school is suing the village for denying its request to rebuild a bungalow cottage into a model home for a new Hasidic community near Kiryas Joel.
Sweeney contends that the non-Hasidic neighbors of the property conspired to thwart these plans in 2006 by incorporating the Village of South Blooming Grove, which includes the property. Village officials have denied this contention.
My understanding is that Hasitic communities become these Jewish ghettoes that we have heard about. They have huge families and high social needs because of it.All three groups — Sheri Torah, Keen Equities and Blue Rose Estates — share the goal of turning the bungalow colony into a Hasidic community, Sweeney said.
If there is some truth to the first paragraph that I have quoted, it is interesting. Does another community,regardless of what it is, have a right to say that we do not want to be swamped by a Hasitic colony? My opinion is yes, but many would disagree with me.
I do not believe it is uncommon to see friction between the Hasitic community and their neighbours, this wikipedia article points out.
