  • 2 Joel KJ // May 27, 2009 at 3:03 pm

    Teitelbaum = Palm tree

  • 3 Azi // May 27, 2009 at 7:13 pm

    I never realized that about the palm trees, i always see these trees in pictures of the Satmar Rebbes.

    There is a mistake on the Rebbe’s Kever.

    On the fourth line of text it states;
    מי יתרץ הויות ומי – יפרק שברים
    What was meant to be stated is
    מי יפרק הויות ומי – יתרץ שברים
    Why would someone separate what is broken?

    Now it is too late to do anything.

    Has someone noticed this before?

    יפרק מלשון פרק ית ענך מפם אריותא

    But the question is what does it say in the source, which is somewhere in the Kinus for Tishah B’av.

  • 8 Shloimie // Apr 23, 2010 at 3:00 pm

    I am only repeating what a well known Rav said.

    Do a search on Most of the times the loshon מי יפרק הויות ומי – יתרץ שברים is used.

    Shloimie, I guess you can read Yiddish.
    Here are discussions about the topic you brought up,

    And the original one,
    In this second link, scroll up a little and there he brings up some more points of interest regarding certain words that are used on tombstones.

    My grandfather, my mother’s father, R’ Chaim Shmiel Deutsch hyd, was the Satmar Rebbe’s first hois bucher in Orsheve during WW1. I met the Satmar Rebbe in 1960 as a 13 yr old boy and he was thrilled that my grandfather had living offspring. He gave me a bruche that I should be a voil chasidishe bucher.

    From my knowledge, Klausenburger Rebbe is credited with rebuilding Chasidic Jewry in the United States.

    Reply to Chaim Yitzchok, this is the first time I am told that Klausenburger Rebbe is credited with rebuilding Chasidic Jewry in the United States.
    Till now I only heard/read that Satmerer Rebbe built Chasidic Jewry in the United States with great unbeleaveable stories to go along. I would be very interested to hear similar of the Klausenburger Rebbe.

    אם לא להלהיט את המקום ולהלהיב את הרוחות,
    למה בכלל התחילו לספר פה מפעולות הרב מקלויזענבורג זצ”ל ?

    Bobov maybe also, The Satmar Rebbe and the Bobover Rebbe, Rav Shlomo ZT”L.

    I am descended from Moses Wolf (Farkas)Teitelbaum of Kopocs Apati (near the city of Kisvarda) he was a mezaros (butcher), in Kisvarda but lived in KA. He had three sons my great grandfather Maier, Herman and Bernat. Is anyone aware of the existence of such a family. they were not Hasidic but they were very religious. Herman and Bernat left KA and went to Nyirbator where they were empoloyed by Naftali Teitelbaum at the Synagouge.

    Rabbi Shraga Feivel Mendelwitz is credited for building yidishkeit in America prior to ww2. The Boyaner Rebbe among other chasidic rebbes were m’karev these American youths and gave them a Ruach chasidus. Later on when the Satmar Rebbe arrived he finished off what they had started.

  • 20 Musmach // Nov 6, 2011 at 1:28 pm

    This discussion (x is credited vs. y is credited) is beyond narishkeit. There are many rebbeim and non-rebbeim who can be credited with building Torah Judaism in the US both before and after WWII.

    B”H I had the opportunity to see the Rebbe several times at the large Satmar Beis Medrash in Williamsburg. Also, in the summer of 1972 I was living in Far Rockaway, and my best friend and I walked on a Shabbos afternoon all the way from Far Rockaway to Belle Harbor, where the Rebbe’s summer home was. All along the way many of NYC’s “finest citizens” were leaning out of their apt windows shouting antisemitic epithets at us, but we were not deterred. When we finally got to the Rebbe’s house we davened Maariv and then we were shown into the room where the Rebbe was to hear him make Havdolah, and we were then the first to wish the Rebbe a “gitte voch.” We then asked a chosid for bus fare so we could return to Far Rockaway. It was a Shabbos I will never forget.
