The Hasidim are first of all Orthodox Jews. They believe that the Torah, the five books of Moses, is the literal word of God, and that carrying out this word is. Although the Jewish religion is over years old, Ultra Orthodox Hasidic culture began only around years ago - in Eastern Europe.

A new movement was introduced that emphasized physical activity (example: dancing) over studying text (example: reading Talmudic books).

Hasidim belong to a movement that was founded by Rabbi Israel Baal Shem Tov, who taught love, joy and humility—both in our service of G‑d and in our treatment of fellow human beings. Hasidic and Yeshivish Jewish Tradition puts in a great amount of effort in close family relations.

In those communities the level of Chesed (generosity and charity) is extremely high. Children are encouraged to help each other and always be nice, as this can be reflected in the many charity drives lead by young kids.

Hasidism, sometimes spelled Chassidism, and also known as Hasidic Judaism (Hebrew: חסידות ‎, romanized: Ḥăsīdut, ; originally, "piety"), is a Jewish religious group that arose as a spiritual revival movement in the territory of contemporary Western Ukraine during the 18th century, and spread rapidly throughout Easternmost affiliates reside in Israel and the United.
