adj. Of or relating to Hasidic Judaism or Hasidic Jews.
"[T]he Satmar and other Hasidic movements represented an alternative version of the “New York Jew” — the assimilated cohort that was already heading to the suburbs when Williamsburg began to fill with strictly Orthodox refugees from Hitler’s Europe. Moreover, while their fellow Jews were largely joining the professional class, the Hasidim had more in common with Puerto Rican and African-American residents as proponents for and beneficiaries of federal and state aid to the poor."
