In his new book, Haaretz photographer Gil Cohen-Magen captures the every day life of Hasidic Jews in Israel. Cohen-Magen spent the last decade putting together "Hasidic Courts" after building bonds with different Hasidic communities over the years, which allowed him to gain unprecedented access to sects that rarely invite outside attention.
