Interesting story. The extreme hasidic communities seem to have some similarities to the Amish. A life combining scripture and strict community standards. If you dont follow the community's strict rules, you get shunned, excommunicated, or end up leaving on your own. Using the Amish comparison, I guess one could equate Kiriyas Joel as a Hasidic version of some Pennsylvania Amish community (gmay) near Lancaster, PA.
