Deborah Feldman was born and raised in the Hasidic community of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, New York. She is the author of the New York Times Bestselling memoir, UNORTHODOX: The Scandalous Rejection of My Hasidic Roots (Simon and Schuster.) Currently, she is working on a follow-up memoir, which finds her embarking on independence as a single woman and mother, finding a new kind of Jewish life for herself, and discovering the far-flung yet familiar community of many like-minded "religious refugees" of all faiths around the world, due out from Blue Rider Press, Penguin, in October of 2013.
I grew up in the Satmar sect. However, I can add a little bit of context to that answer. The Hasidic sects are sometimes intertwined in interesting ways. For example, because rabbinical families can only marry their children off to each other, often the rabbi of one sect will hook his children up with the kids of another rabbi of a friendly sect. This happens very often, among lower-ranking families as well, and so some children will be raised in ostensibly “Satmar” homes but one of their parents may be from a different sect, and so they have this extended family that belongs to that sect. Although they may identify as Satmar, and spend a lot of time in Satmar institutions, they will also encounter the communities and institutions of the other sect throughout their lives.
