It’s a sticky issue we’d all much rather just ignore, but the situation in Hasidim-dominated South Williamsburg shows no signs of letting up (an ongoing dispute over bike lanes in the area is a case in point). Of course, that doesn’t mean a few laughs can’t help ease the tension, which is why I suggest watching this animated short (which is also a trailer for this new book by Melvin Konner) entitled The Golem by Stephen Levinson and Jason Reich:

Now you’re an expert on hipster-Hasidim relations. Congratulations.
