Teitelbaum, Joel, of Satmar

   US chassidic rabbi. Teitelbaum, the ‘Satmar Rebbe’ was descended from a Hungarian dynasty of chassidic zaddikkim (‘holy men’). In 1944, he was one of the Hungarian Jews allowed to leave by arrangement between Rudolf KASZTNER and Adolf EICHMANN. After the war he re-established his yeshivah in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, New York. As an ultra-Orthodox Jew, he rejected the right of Israel to exist before the coming of the Messiah.
