Thousands Attend Yahrzeit of Satmar Rebbe

Thousands of Chasidic Jews streamed into Kiryas Joel Last Week Tuesday for the annual commemoration of the death of Rabbi Joel Teitelbaum, the founder of the Satmar Chasidic movement and namesake of the Satmar village in Orange County.

Worshippers visit Teitelbaum’s mausoleum each year on his yertzheit,  Rabbi Teitelbaum died at age 92 in 1979, two years after Kiryas Joel was created.

It was created in 1974. I know because my parents were the first ones to move in, in July 1974
