Hassidim in Israel Give Riotous Welcome to New York Youth

Download PDF for this date

Police had to be called in to keep order at Lydda Airport yesterday when hundreds of singing and dancing followers of the Satmar Rebbe accorded a riotous welcome to Aharon Teitelbaum, 18-year-old grandnephew of the Rebbe.

The youth came here from New York for his wedding today at Bnai Brak. One of the enthusiastic Hassidim broke a leg when he fell as the crowd surged forward to greet the youth. The youth was wed today to Shoshana Hager, 17, daughter of the Rabbi Yehoshna Hager of Bnai Brak and granddaughter of the Rabbi of Vishnitz, Rabbi Haim Meir Hager.
