  1. I careless, Haredi are not Jews. People like them should go else where .

    Comment by Vera Lucia Zeitune Ylvisaker — February 12, 2014 @ 10:31 AM

  2. “A HEATED BIDDING WAR AMONG ALL THE RICH MEN OF SATMAR”??? All the Rebbes who I know, never “charged” or were “bid on” or were “raffled off”, even if the final price was given to Tzedakah. Rebbes are supposed to be there for their followers – to answer their questions, to give them advice – not to be “seen” or “visited” by those who could not afford to “pay for him”. WHAT ABOUT ALL THE POORER PEOPLE – DON’T THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO BENEFIT FROM THE REBBE’S WISDOM???

  3. It is wisdom to reject Israel. I don’t think so.

  4. I hope Israel doesn't let this enemy of the state and the Jewish people in.

  10. He lives in Jerusalem and doesn’t recognize Israel as a Jewish State?

    Comment by Richard Sandler — February 12, 2014 @ 4:00 PM

  11. Wouldn’t pay a penny to be near these people who have set themselves apart and are no longer part of our people !

    Comment by Michael Pertz — February 12, 2014 @ 4:42 PM

  12. How much do we have to put together to never have to hear from these jew haters again?

    Comment by Michael Mostofsky — February 12, 2014 @ 2:50 PM

  13. I hate this glorification of mere humans. They should be ashamed of profiting of there reputation.

    Comment by Thomas Günther — February 12, 2014 @ 4:55 PM

  14. Price of hosting the Satmar Rebbe overnight = Priceless!
    (Not to mention the mitzvah miles in olam habah!)

  15. Satmar is not on the Israeli dole – a lot of satmar chassidim in israel work and/or own businesses – otherwise they live off of charity from Satmar – it is against their belief to accept money from Israeli government

    Comment by Rabbi Joseph Kolakowski — February 12, 2014 @ 4:39 PM

  16. I agree, people should know what they are talking about before publishing articles. this is bad-talking.

    Comment by Todd Carter — February 12, 2014 @ 4:41 PM

  17. Satmar is a cult and anti-Israel. Why is this cult leader traveling to Israel? Israel should deny his entry.

    Comment by Ben II — February 12, 2014 @ 6:52 PM

  18. Idolatry pure and simple. He should join the Israeli army and encourage all the haredim to follow suit. I am certain God will understand that without us Jews there is no God. And without a powerful Israel there would be no Jews and no God left on this earth, or somewhere where he/she resides.

    Comment by Aldo Mimoun — February 12, 2014 @ 5:04 PM

  19. every satmer "avrech" (young man) should immediatly be deleted off the Dole list (bituach leumi) ! a million + for a rebbe? dont encourage the Shnor machine !

    Comment by Ora Cooper — February 12, 2014 @ 5:14 PM

  20. Why is this not labeled as an opinion piece and runs as a HEADLINE – the very first headline no less? What does this say?

    Comment by Sylvia Poe — February 12, 2014 @ 5:37 PM

  21. to Ann Cohen – the old Rebbe zya did ask for big money to come to Chicago – but he gave it back to renovate Chicago mikvah because of a letter he received from a woman in Chicago

    Comment by Rabbi Joseph Kolakowski — February 12, 2014 @ 6:38 PM

  22. Satmar does not take money from bituach leumi

    Comment by Rabbi Joseph Kolakowski — February 12, 2014 @ 6:40 PM

  23. David HaMelech was a soldier
    Yehoshua was a soldier
    Hashem loved them. Join the army!

  24. Being just a simple Jewish dude that has been in the country most of my life…living a observant quiet existence…I often have wondered why Haredi are remarked as not Jewish . I have heard of this numerous times…and my Rabbi sez it is for me to discover. So…I am taking it that they are to some and to some are not…….any remarks would be appreciated….Shalom…

    Comment by Leo Erwin — February 12, 2014 @ 7:01 PM

  25. Agree completely.

    Comment by Martha Rettig — February 12, 2014 @ 7:05 PM

  26. Your Rabbi is wise. Mine says the same thing. Less observant Jews don't like how the Ultra Orthodox "get all up inteir goodies", especially in Israel. Then, there's the whole Sefardic vs Ashenazi "Who's really a Jew?" debate. The Satmars are a very interesting group. My personal opinion is, "Whoever is brave (or maybe dumb) enough to want to be an Orthodox Jew, and observe the Mitzvot, in a world that is still very dangerous of those openly Jewish…… they're Jews. Me, I have papers. But, look at "Who" asks to see them.

  27. Satmar do take welfare and this is a fact of life I pay for! The Satmar are disgraceful Jew-hating sectarians and are only above Neturi Karta. You dislike "the Zionist state" because it isn't "Jewish enough" yet you and your people did NOTHING to build a state! Satmar love to pray at the Tomb of the Patriachs in a Hebron and at the wailing wall in Jerusalem! Both built by Herod, if he was even Jewish he certainly was not religious! So you can venerate what Herod built but stick your finger at what Golda Meir built?! your self righteous indignation. Stay in galut where your ghetto mindset belong!

    Comment by Sara Chana Mandell — February 13, 2014 @ 1:09 AM

  28. Believe the lie dude… They take the money like everyone else… They are on the dole. If the satmar community can afford this amount then they can afford to pay for themselves and stop taking money for welfare, and STAR PAYING FIR THEIR OWN SECURITY so the Israeli police and army will no longer be burdened with this ty community.

  29. Who doesnt love a good righteous battle?

    Comment by Cookie Jar — February 13, 2014 @ 2:58 PM

  30. to Sara Chana Mandell – Satmar doesn't allow their chassidim to go to the Western Wall or Hebron – you have no idea what you are talking about – as far as defense, we wouldn't be in this mess if it weren't for the Zionists – before the 1890's when the Zionists started coming, Jews and Arabs lived in peace.

    Comment by Rabbi Joseph Kolakowski — February 13, 2014 @ 3:17 PM

  31. Idolatry? I might call it idiocy, but its not idolatry. I hate their ideology, but on the other hand, going with the IDF and blindly following it is more like idolatry then that. And Yes I am pro- IDF but only when it fights against the Arab enemies and nothing more (especially not when it fights against Jews, which is evil!)

    Comment by Mozik Bukharsky — February 13, 2014 @ 9:51 PM

  32. They were also religious, so become Torah observant.

    Comment by Mozik Bukharsky — February 13, 2014 @ 9:52 PM

  33. Mozik Bukharsky Agreed mea ahuz :-)

    Comment by Andrzej Lozowski — February 14, 2014 @ 4:32 PM

  34. Mozik Bukharsky and "become Torah observant" is addressed to whom? :-)

    Comment by Andrzej Lozowski — February 14, 2014 @ 4:34 PM

  35. to Andrez – in order to Jews to fight wars, we need a prophet to establish a State – we were sent into exile and need to wait for Moshiach

    Comment by Rabbi Joseph Kolakowski — February 16, 2014 @ 2:25 AM

  36. Dear Readers
    Why is it that I only see such deep hatred for your fellow religious Jews the Haredim and Hassidim – paralleled or more than your hatred for Arabs and Muslims, is it because their strict lifestyles threaten your own peace, or is it just because they remind you of the old traditions, but, I do not understand how you can hate so much those of your own religion? Are they really the worst sect of Judaism?
    Anyway I have gone through every article written about these ultra religious – and they are all written in a nasty, vicious, sarcastic at-the-best, way possible.
    The comments after are normally loaded with loathing jeering and nasty jibes – loaded with hared!
    Are you all there, really Jews? Orthodox Jews?
    Sorry – but I loved Jews.
