Encyclopedia > Satmar

Satmar is the largest Hasidic group in existence today. Originating in Hungary (now Romania) in the town of Satu Mare (Hungarian Szatmárnémeti), the members were dispersed by the Holocaust and World War II. Large numbers of Satmar Hasidim live in Williamsburg and Kiryas Joel in New York, as well as London and Israel. The sect is most widely known for the opposition to Zionism of its most prominent leaders, Rabbi Moses Teitelbaum and his predecessor Rabbi Joel Teitelbaum.

Marvin Schick: Notes on Satmar (986 words)
Interestingly, Satmar family size is lower in Borough Park, perhaps because this is a more upscale community and in tune with a familiar pattern, socio-economic status impacts on family size.
The Satmar economic infrastructure is substantially based on private enterprise, not governmental funds, as is evident from the great many housing units being built with private capital.
Satmars benefit somewhat ironically from their strong devaluation of secular education, particularly for males, and the concurrent arrangement whereby relatively few young men remain in yeshiva more than two or three years past the high school period.
