  • The Mission Continues

    As in the past so it remains today - we were and still are under the selfsame commitment to adhere to the directions of the Gedolei Yisrael, who stand guard against breaches of purity threatening our camp. When we were required to ask – we asked. When we were instructed to depart – we left. The moment we are summoned back to raise the flag, every other consideration is pushed to the side and we answer: We are ready!

Satmar: Kevias Mezuzah of Simchah Hall

A new, magnificent hall that will ease the burden of parents who are making chasunahs in Satmar was inaugurated last week. The first chasunah was held this week

Yosef Feffer, NY 18/11/2009 07:33

The Satmar Rebbe affixed mezuzahs in a new, magnificent wedding hall in Williamsburg last week. The hall, named 'Pardes Feiga', will significantly ease the financial burden of parents who are marrying off their children.

The Rebbe especially returned from the 'Divrei Yoel' Satmar camp in the Catskills, where he is currently vacationing, to participate in the kevias mezuzah event at the simchah hall in Williamsburg.

The hall opened its doors to the public on Monday of this week, when the first wedding was held. The hall offers subsidized prices for parents who are struggling with the chasunah expenses of their children.

Only a handful of askanim participated in the kevias mezuzah ceremony, including philanthropist Rabbi Eliezer Kastenbaum and his family. Rabbi Kastenbaum funded the entire building of the hall, upon the request of the Rebbe shlita.

After the Rebbe had affixed almost all mezuzahs, he honored the philanthropist with the kevias mezuzah of the last one, after which the Rebbe conducted a l'chaim tisch.

This week, a grand dinner on behalf of the 'Tov V'Chessed' tzedakah organization will be held in the hall, which has already gained popularity within the frum community, and several simchahs have already been booked at the simchah hall.
