Audio: Satmar Rebbe Rav Aharon: Please No Propaganda for My Eretz Yisroel Trip


Rav Aharon Teitelbaum of Satmar is set to travel to Eretz Yisroel this coming month to take part in the marriage of his nephew, a son of Rav Chaim Tzvi Meisels, as well as the bar mitzvah of a grandson of the Dushinsky Rebbe.

In a drashah delivered last night at the chanukas habayis of a new bais medrash in Kiryas Yoel, the Rebbe discussed the upcoming trip. “I’m going, im yirtzeh Hashem, in a few weeks to Eretz Yisroel on the occasion of a simcha in the family. I want to be mechazeik the mosdos in Eretz Yisroel. ”

The Rebbe turned to his Chassidim and said: “I ask that you remain home. I do not need you to join me… I was offered to spend Shabbos in Meron. I have never spent Shabbos in Meron… Im yirtzeh Hashem, on Shabbos Parshas Pekudei I will be in Meron.

“In the past,” he continued, “I traveled to Israel Eretz Yisroel without noise, without propaganda, and I didn’t take with me a crowd. Now, as well, I don’t need a kabbolas ponim, no lights on the street, no notices in the street, big and small, no special vehicles and all these forms of nonsense,” said the Rebbe .

“I’m working to ensure that the bochurim won’t be busy with silly things like this.”

  1. That’s a big step in the right direction. Kal HaKavod that he should speak out against it, even if people ultimately won’t listen.

  2. So Matzav is in high cover-up mode on this one. The thought police and the sanitizers are out in full force. Didn’t expect any better from the little babies that run your stupid website.

  3. You left out the fact that in the past nearly 10 years since he became Rebbe he abolished all these things. Find some real news to report.

  4. Dear Typical, Are you a follower of this person? or were you once a follower. It definitely sounds like the latter. No need to bash another jew!
