Photos: Satmar Marks Yom Tov in Crown Heights

Satmar Chassidim gathered at the Bedford Avenue armory in Crown Heights Heights to mark Kuf Alef Kislev, the day Rabbi Yoel Teitelbaum Ztz’l, the founder of Satmar Chassidus in America, escaped from the Nazis during the Holocaust.

Well over 10,000 Satmar Chassidim packed into the Crown Heights Armory, where they danced and heard droshos from Rabonim, punctuated with a speech from the Satmar Rebbe, Rabbi Zalman Leib Teitelbaum.

The event featured a fundraiser for the Satmar Moisdos and Yeshivos.

    Why can’t tgey make the kinus banquets there if Sat Mar can fit 10000 people with tables we should have no problem fitting 4000

      Because Satmar does not seat them around round tables. They cram in many seats without any tables, and it isn’t a proper sit down meal for most.
