Two Satmars Celebrate Separately for Single Cause

Thousands of Satmar Chasidim Gathered Together To Celebrate Kuf Alef Kislev. This is an annual event celebrating the miracle of the Satmar Rebbe's rescue from the Nazis on 21 Kislev, 1944.

On 21 Kislev 1944, the Satmar Rebbe, Rabbi Yoel Teitelbaum Zatzal, was rescued from the Bergen-Belson Nazi concentration camp along with 1368 other Jews. Since then, for the past 65 years, Satmar Chasidim have celebrated the day as a day of festivities which includes Divrei Torah, singing, and meals.
