Photos: Thousands, Led By Satmar Rebbe, Rally Against Israel in Front of UN

34

Yesterday, a protest in front of the United Nations in New York during the UN General Assembly drew thousands of Satmar Chassidim, led by Rav Zalman Leib Teitelbaum, Satmar Rebbe of Williamsburg.

The protest was held during the speech of Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu to demonstrate against what organizers called the “religious decrees” and “forced army conscription” in Israel.

Earlier, Satmar’s Hisachdus Harabbonim of the US and Canada issued a call for its adherents to attend the demonstration in front of the UN building. A letter encouraging participation said that in light of the “terrible decrees” in the Holy Land “against religion and the holy Torah…we must summon the entire world against the evil ones.”

Some of the attendees carried signs protesting the State of Israel.

Speakers at the asifa addressed the crowd from a shtender to which an American flag was affixed.

  2. thousands?? Millions…
    i was in shomer shaboss yesterday and saw flyers from CRC explaining (trying to) why they do this non-sense… they claim they represent 250k ppl??? HUH???

  3. I wonder if the next time any of these people tries to go to Eretz Yisroel and he is denied entrance as an enemy of the state how he will feel then. How will they feel when they too can no longer visit or attend Simchos there.

  4. Is this the setting to do this?

    Is this what hahshem wants from us??

    Hahshem wants each one of us to be a good jew before demondtat6ibf against Israel, a place that we’ll get wheb moshiach comes.

  5. It is a mitzvah to be mefarseim this so the condemnation from the Olam Hatorah is loud and clear. We do not sanction such rallies which put Klal Yisroel at risk.

    • I attended the protest a few years ago but oppose the current protest.A few years ago the protest was over an actual new decree to draft those learning in Yeshiva. Today while the future of Lomdey Torah in EY still isn’t 100% secure being that Bibi is not currently looking to draft them (nor was he the instigator back then) making a protest by the UN is at best counterproductive.

  6. how come i didnt know about this the decrees arevery real the gezeiros are real from the sonei torah whether the rally was the right time is another sheilah but whatw as expressed is the daas of kol rabboseinu

  7. Why didn’t Matzav post details about this protest PRIOR to it happening so people such as myself could have attended?

    This is needed to be done more frequently considering the Israeli government’s repeated attacks against Torah Judaism.

  8. # 1 you left out the best part: עַתָּ֣ה תִרְאֶ֔ה אֲשֶׁ֥ר אֶֽעֱשֶׂ֖ה לְפַרְעֹ֑ה כִּ֣י בְיָ֤ד חֲזָקָה֙ יְשַׁלְּחֵ֔ם וּבְיָ֣ד חֲזָקָ֔ה יְגָֽרְשֵׁ֖ם מֵֽאַרְצֽוֹ:

  9. To Ben Torah I think you should change your name to sonei yisroel not Ben Torah a true Ben Torah would be sitting and learning not out making a chilul Hashen
