A Short Story: Best of... Hyperlocal Religious wars
Usually we think of religious wars as something happening between two nations, not between two sects in the same Hasidic section of the same neighborhood. Welcome to Holy Williamsburg!
From the Broadway Triangle to Rose Plaza, to a bevy of court cases fighting over naming rights, nothing is dull among the Satmars. Even Marty Markowitz couldn't resolve this one (and Steve Levin doesn't want to). The latest event to set off the sects? Whose matzoh tastes the best.
