I have revised the Hassidic section, and I do not believe that any Hassidic person considers themselves and "Orthodox Jew", nor would an Orthodox Jew consider the Hassidim to be part of the Orthodox religious group. In fact, Hasiddic sects began a separatist movement from Orthodox Jews more than 300 years ago. So, I have revised that section, and am beginning an article, "Hassidim".

Nancy, thank you for your efforts. However, this is not quite correct. In fact, Hasidic Judaism is per se a substream of Orthodox Judaism. See "User:Daniel Breslauer/Structure of Judaism-section on Citizendium" for an overview of the structure of Judaism. You'll see that the structure here is: "Judaism -> Orthodox Judaism -> Haredi Judaism -> Hasidic Judaism -> tens (hundreds) of Hasidic groups." Also, all Hasidim view themselves as being Orthodox Jews. --Daniel Breslauer 10:10, 13 November 2007 (CST)
