JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Seeking book recommendation on orthodox/ultra orthodox Jewish sects #general

Barbara Meyers

I am interested in reading about the various sects within orthodox/ultra
orthodox Judaism. I would like to learn about their origins, and founders. In
addition I would like to read about the differences in their everyday
lifestyles, traditions, beliefs, and practices, >from one another. I am hoping
there exists a book that covers all sects. If not, can anyone please tell me
about how many sects there are, along with the names of them in case I need to
read about them individually should there be no book that covers them all.

Thank you and please respond privately,
Barbara Meyers
