Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. New Square is the anglicized form of Skvyra, a town in Ukraine, where the Skver Hasidim have their roots. The village was established in 1954, when twenty families moved from the Williamsburg area of Brooklyn, New York City to a 130-acre dairy farm under the leadership of their Rebbe, Yaakov Yosef Twersky. The founders planned a group of five-room cottages and streets named after Presidents of the United States. The founders intended to name the settlement New Skvir; a typist-generated error Anglicized the name. In 1958 the settlement had 60 families.New Square''s neighboring communities began to protest against the development of New Square as the non-Jewish people and Jewish people wanted single-family homes in a manner described by Jerome R. Mintz, author of Hasidic People, as "well-delineated" as opposed to "a crowded and disorganized urban sprawl." The concerns were related to property taxes, sewage systems, property values, and control of school districts.
