GRAND RABBI ARON TO LEAD SHABBOS SERVICES
Grand Rabbi Aron Teitelbaum will lead many thousands of followers from around the world gathering under a huge tent (approximately 20,000 square feet) erected on Lee Avenue corner Taylor Street in Williamsburg for Shabbos (the Jewish Sabbath) starting this evening. Worship services will commence tonight (Friday, April 28) at 8:00 p.m., on Saturday morning (April 29) at 9:30 a.m. and Saturday evening at 7:00 p.m.
Grand Rabbi Aron, the oldest son of Rabbi Moses Teitelbaum obm, arrived in Williamsburg, Wednesday (April 26) and, as the new Grand Rabbi, plans to reside there. Grand Rabbi Aaron’s highly skilled qualifications and credentials as a speaker and charismatic person and as a dean and a rabbi who served Satmar in many positions for so many years make him well-qualified to serve as Grand Rabbi. Grand Rabbi Aron presided as rabbi of Siget in Williamsburg until 1982, when he was promoted Chief Dean of Satmar College in Kiryas Joel; after three years he was promoted to be Rabbi of the (village) Shtetel Kiryas Joel where he has since lived. In 1999 the Satmar Congregation’s lawful board selected him as Rabbi for the entire Satmar congregations and institutions around the world. that same lawful board selected Aron as Grand Rabbi.
If you plan to make a visit to Grand Rabbi Aron during the Shiva, or thereafter, please contact Rabbi Leib Glantz at (917) 647-7770.
