Rebbe's death splits Satmar community

Like in New York, Satmar's headquarters, the Israeli branch of the virulently anti-Zionist Hassidic sect is marred by a bitter dispute - still unresolved - between Teitelbaum's two sons Aharon and Zalman Leib.

In Israel, the two camps, roughly equal in size at between 750 and 1,000 families each, are split between Jerusalem, which is pro-Zalman Leib, and Bnei Brak which is pro-Aharon. The two camps even have their own educational institutions, synagogues, neighborhoods and rabbis. Institutions that bear the name Yitav Lev identify with Zalman, while Satmar Center is pro-Aharon.

"Aharon is not fit to be the next Satmar rebbe because he broke the Satmar rule against speaking Hebrew in the home," said Der Yid's Weiss, who spoke to The Jerusalem Post in fluent Hebrew. "After the death of our rebbe we will continue to wave the anti-Zionist flag. That is one of our main goals."
