  Satmar (Hasidic dynasty) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Satmar is a dynasty of Hasidic Judaism which originated in the Hungarian town of Satu Mare ( Szatmárnémeti in Hungarian, originally in the Austro-Hungarian Empire and presently in Romania).
The Hasisic house of Satmar traces its roots to Rabbi Moshe Teitelbaum ( 1759 - 1841), Rebbe of Sátoraljaújhely (Ujhel), Hungary.
Satmar's views were formulated and espoused by Rabbi Joel Teitelbaum and are maintained by Rabbi Moshe Teitelbaum and his son and likely successor Rabbi Zalmon.

 Marvin Schick: Notes on Satmar
Interestingly, Satmar family size is lower in Borough Park, perhaps because this is a more upscale community and in tune with a familiar pattern, socio-economic status impacts on family size.
The Satmar economic infrastructure is substantially based on private enterprise, not governmental funds, as is evident from the great many housing units being built with private capital.
Satmars benefit somewhat ironically from their strong devaluation of secular education, particularly for males, and the concurrent arrangement whereby relatively few young men remain in yeshiva more than two or three years past the high school period.

Satmar is named after a Hungarian town, whereby a thriving Jewish community existed before WWII.
In the beginning, some in the community were very suspicious of having a Hasidic Rav, but the new Rav was very keen in dealing with those people in a very subtle and accommodating way, as he strategically won their hearts over.
The Satmar community as well as the entire Hasidic community was grieving at the tremendous loss.

Satmar is the largest of the Chasidic sects of Ultra Orthodox Judaism, which began hundreds of years ago in Eastern Europe.
Satmar was the name of the town on the Hungarian – Romanian border which was home to Rabbi Joel Teitelbaum, first Grand Rabbi of Satmar, for whom the village is named after.
Currently, the vast majority of the residents are members of the Satmar Chasidic Community, who choose to reside in KJ to be close to family and friends, who share their culture and language.

Unlike Satmar and other established Orthodox congregations, the Belz'e sect was originally founded as a "Chasidus", not as an official congregation.
Satmar was very angered by his decision to send delegates to the secular Israeli "Knesset" and instruct his followers to vote.
Satmar was angered even more, and managed to obtain signatures from significant segments of the Hasidic and Ultra-Orthodox in an attempt to renounce and even ostracize the Belz'e Rebbe.

 Satmar Chassidim   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Satmar is a small town in Hungary which had a sizeable Jewish community before the Holocaust.
It was in Satmar that Rabbi Joel Teitelbaum (1887-1979) demonstrated such an exceptional scholarly ability that in 1929 he was named the Rav or chief rabbi of the orthodox community there.
The Satmar Chasidim denounce Israel on the grounds that the Gemarah teaches that Jews should not forcibly enter Israel; that Jews should not rebel against the nations of the world; and that the nations of the world should not oppress the Jews “excessively” during the Exile.

The court added, however, that the Satmars' constitutional right to exercise their religion freely did not require a separate school, since the parents had alleged emotional trauma, not inconsistency with religious practice or doctrine, as the reason for seeking separate treatment.
Since the Satmars do not claim that separatism is religiously mandated, their children may receive bilingual and bicultural instruction at a public school already run by the Monroe-Woodbury district.
The Satmars also used basements of some of their buildings as schools and synagogues, which, according to the town, was also a zoning violation.

Critics claim the Satmars strip the Yemenites of their culture, separate them from their countrymen, and teach them Yiddish and other Satmar traditions, leaving them ill-prepared to live in the modern world.
Jarfi said anti-Zionist Satmar representatives offered parents in Yemen hundreds of dollars to send their children to study in the United States, claiming Israel would cut off the children's sidelocks and abduct the wives and daughters of Yemenite families.
Satmar leaders said their only intention was to help their fellow Jews, and the Yemenites were not controlled by the community nor denied the right to travel to Israel.

As the War approached, the Satmarer Rav was smuggled out of harm’s way, first into Switzerland, where he remained throughout the War, and afterwards in 1946, into Israel.
By the 1960’s, the Satmar community in Brooklyn had grown rapidly and the rebbe had gained many new adherents from immigration to the United States, and his opinions and blessings were sought by thousands.
The Satmar community grieved at the tremendous loss of their rebbe, who had led his followers according to uncompromising principles, in which he deeply believed.

 S.C.J. FAQ: Section 2.11. Who We Are: What is Satmar Chasidism?
Satmar was founded by Rabbi Yoel Teitelbaum (1887-1979); it is now led by his nephew Rabbi Moshe Teitelbaum.
Satmar is based in the Williamsburg section of New York City and in the nearby Hasidic village of Kiryas Yoel.
Although Satmar is large and very influential, it has not received much positive publicity, and is often subject to stereotyping.

 "My Neighbor, My Father, The Rebbe":Rabbi Yoel Teitelbaum
The Satmar Rav, a direct descendant of both the famed Yismach Moshe and the Chavas Daas, was recognized as a young man for his unusual lomdus, hasmadah and tzidkus - Torah scholarship, diligence and piety - assuming his first rabbinical position as Rav of Muzheyer at the age of seventeen.
Thus, the Satmar Rav's relentless demands for the highest religious standards proved to be an important contribution toward changing the complexion of a significant segment of Orthodox life in America.
For evidence of the living legacy of the late Satmar Rav, we tend to look at the self-contained communities of his followers that crowd this or that old-world corner of various urban centers; or that are found in unlikely suburban locations, such as New York's Monroe township or Rockland County.

 Satmar's Sisters of Mercy
Throughout the day, Satmar women from the neighborhood would bring in a big sheet of sponge cake, or a large tub of homemade applesauce made in their private kitchens.
None of the Satmar women would allow me to know their names or to take their picture, yet we were strangely intimate, these women and I. After all, we Jews are more sweetly intimate than we suppose.
We may never speak again, these Satmar women and I, but it was as if we shared the same lake, a piece of G-d's beauty, the water rippling flowing from one side to the other.

Large numbers of Satmar Hasidim settled in the United States after World War II and now live mainly in Williamsburg and Borough Park in Brooklyn New York, in Kiryas Joel in up-state New York, as well as in London and in Jerusalem in Israel.

The Satmar handicapped children were then forced to travel to the public school in an adjoining community, run by the Monroe-Woodbury School District.
The Satmar parents requested the school district to provide special education at a "neutral site" in the Village, as would have been permitted under the law; but the district refused.
It is difficult to bring up a child as a Satmar Hasid when the state insists upon educating all children in schools dominated by the majority culture.

It's clear that the Satmar population is growing exponentially with each generation, because of all the children they are having.
If the Satmorim want to keep growing at this pace while at the same time being loyal citizens of the society they live in--which is part of Satmar ideology--then they should start thinking ahead and planning for the future how they can make their presence something desirable to locals when they expand like this.
But today, all Satmar seem to be able to offer locals is that law enforcment resources aren't strained because there is virtually no crime in their communities (unlike other populations on welfare living in projects).

 The Heir Unapparent
The occasion was the annual fund- raising dinner last Dec. 5 celebrating the escape of the founder of the Satmar Hasidim from the Nazis, when, according to Satmar tradition, the founder intoned the verse after setting foot on Swiss soil.
The split is perceived as deeply painful for Moses Teitelbaum, who assumed the leadership of the Satmars in 1979 when his uncle died without a son and the group's rabbis chose him, the only nephew, as the most authoritative figure.
It surprised many Satmars, who assumed that Aaron, the eldest brother, who was born in 1947, was next in line according to Hasidic custom.

The Nahari family is among at least 60 to 70 Yemenite families who were brought to North America by the Satmar, according to the head of the Jewish Agency Aliyah Delegation in North America, Michael Landsberg.
He explained that members of the Satmar had taken two Nahari children on a "play date" at an undisclosed location at the time the original flight was ready to board.
According to Israeli documentary filmmaker Nitzan Gilady, who produced 'In Satmar Custody' this year, which followed the story of one Yemenite Jewish family, the Jaradi's who were brainwashed by Satmar missionaries in Yemen before being brought to Monroe, New York, the Satmar are indeed running a deceptive operation.

 A Hassid and A Heretic: Bobov   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The main difference that Bobov has to Satmar is that they were never trained to fight in the name of god and thus even the youngsters had a have a hard time doing what we do best.
This is not comparable to satmar where there is real and lasting division among the chassidim; this is a case of a small group of troublemakers who *shouldn't* be rewarded for their efforts.
Satmar has its own problems that it would do well to face instead of pretending that every group is as corrupt and lacking in positive content as they are.

The Satmar Rebbe, Moses Teitelbaum, had in the past (in the 80's and early 90's) fought a fierce battle against the "Bnei Yoel", the breakaway group from Satmar after he was nominated as Rebbe in 1981.
The Satmar Rebbe would hold fierce speeches against this group, denounce them as opposing the old Satmar Rebbe Joel Teitelbaum and accusing them of destroying his "mosdos" (religious educational institutions).
In a most bizarre change of direction, the Satmar Rebbe is now fiercely opposed to his son's sovereignty.

"Satmar is divided against itself, it has been and continues to be, and this is part of that ongoing struggle," said Samuel Heilman, a New York University sociologist and expert on the chasidic community.
Spokesmen for the main Satmar leadership downplayed the significance of the Green announcement.
Green's Satmar endorsers said they were backing the candidate because he understood their need for affordable housing and special education and because he had proposed a job-training plan.

His nephew, Rabbi Moses Teitelbaum was eventually chosen to assume the mantle as the Grand Rabbi of the Satmar community imbued with all of the authority and command of power that his predecessor enjoyed.
Thus, although Rabbi Moses Teitelbaum continued to serve as the Grand Rabbi of the Satmar community, the dispute between the supporters Rabbi Aaron and those of Rabbi Zalman Leib divided the two camps to the point that they each disputed the other side’s legitimacy to be identified as true Satmar Chasidim.
All the civil legal disputes were ultimately ancillary issues used to dress and color the core issue (one of religious legitimacy) in an effort to have this far-reaching dispute resolved by a secular court in which a civil court could not intervene, except in violation of the First Amendment.
