Satmar Civil war in Bnei-Brak erupts in full swing ..as Satmar Chassidim Ignore Satmar Rebbe and Embrace R' Hersh Meisels ....

So Yom Kippur is over, and clapping "al chet" is b"h behind us, but the "git kvittel" in Satmar never materialized; not in Monroe and not in Bnei Brak.

Reb Aron Teitelbaum, Satmar Rav of Monroe, had a huge following in Bnei-Brak, and had appointed R'Hersh Meisels, his sister's son, as Rosh Yeshiva of all Satmar moisdois in Bnei Brak. He figured if he appointed family, he would be able to control the real estate etc..

As the yiddish saying goes... "a mentch tracht, in Gut lacht" loosely translated as "A person plans, but G-d laughs"

R' Hersh Meisels slowly developed a tremendous following in the community and they decided to call him "Rav" of the community elevating him from his previous "Rosh Yeshiva" position.

Well, that didn't bode well with R' Aron and like a schizophrenic, saw R' Hersh Meisels now as an enemy and unceremoniously booted him out...

This caused an outright civil war, and R' Hersh's followers numbering in the thousands totally ignored R'Aron's "fatwa" and are embracing R' Hersh.

In the video, one can hear R' Aron calling R' Hersh and his followers "ungrateful underworld gangsters" and "corrupt" and warns them that he will do everything to stop this rebellion...

Note that the fact that R' Aron called R' Hersh an "underworldnik" this derogatory term is something he never even used on the hated Zionists! R' Aron also calls his nephew, "Chief (Rosh) of the Rebellion" "a rodef" 

So I have two words of advice for the Monroe Satmar Rebbe

 Good luck!

Meanwhile in the video filmed on Simchas Torah even a blind man  can see that Bnei Brak Satmar Chassidim are embracing R' Hersh and could care less what R' Aron says or threatens...

But if I were a follower of R' Hersh I would take R' Aron's seriously, as he is no stranger to violence and had a Satmar Bais Medrish in Monroe burned to a crisp a while ago and in the video one could see the building burning and how they somehow managed to rescue the Sifrei Torah,..but not before they beat the hell out of each other in the Main Satmar Shul....

In the videos above and below, R' Aron Teitelbaum speaks and sounds like the tzaddik while his opposition are the aggressors, but in the video below you can see clearly the opposite.

It's all about power nothing to do about Torah!

Pass the popcorn but please don't burn it!
