Hasidic

Walking through the park today, I saw an unusual sight.

I think they belong to a particular sect of Judaism. If I am right they are called Hasidic Jews. They do not shave the sides of their face because of a biblical commandment, which is why they have extremely long sideburns. They were speaking Yiddish which is a language particular to Jews.
