    Shabbat Shalom 🙂

    It’s a difference in how literally they approach Torah, for one thing, I would suggest. The ultra Orthodox tend to be more insular. One could also argue that the insane group Nateuri Karta fall under the ‘ultra orthodox’ heading!

    I’ll stop now so that our more Orthodox Jewish friends can offer more insight 🙂

    Well, first the Ultra-Orthodox don’t like to be referred to as Ultra-Orthodox. They prefer the names of what ever particular group they refer to, or as Charedi.

    As to the differences . . . the biggest that I can think of is that the Ultra-Orthodox tend to add extra layers to their observance that the Modern Orthodox would not. For example, Chabad encourages using Chalav Yisroel over regular kosher milk, and other groups may dress more modestly or in garb traditional to their communities.
