Student Union opens ‘hasbara’ room in effort to fill public diplomacy vacuum.
Chaim Israel, who wears a shtreimel on Shabbos, has served as the president of the Boro Park Y for many years and is president of Agudath Israel of Boro Park West (9th Avenue). He is frequently found on the roster of panelists at Agudath Israel annual conventions and is seen in almost every picture of Boro Park activists at significant community events. He also is a longtime member of Community Planning Board No. 12.
Universally respected, Chaim Israel plainly is an individual who should be given serious attention as a chassidishe candidate for public office. He will be strongly supported by all segments of our communities. Though this writer considers Chaim Israel a good friend, this writing and vote of confidence is totally unsolicited.
On the second day of Chol Hamoed Pesach, April 10, Moshe Chaim Labin was engaged to the daughter and oldest child of Rabbi Chaim Zvi Teitelbaum, Jerusalem Satmar Rav and oldest son of Rabbi Zalman Leib Teitelbaum, Satmar Rebbe.

Present were only close family members and specifically invited kehilla leaders.
That evening, thousands gathered in the Main Satmar Beis Medrash in Williamsburg to mark the joyous event. The assembled sat at or stood around the tables while yeshiva students stood on standing-room only bleachers waiting for the Rebbe, together with other family celebrants, to enter. When the Rebbe stepped over the beis medrash doorstep, spirited singing erupted and accompanied him until he sat on the podium.
