My Machberes

Satmar is one of the largest and leading chassidishe communities. What happens in Satmar is closely followed by the entire chassidishe world. No Satmar home is permitted to have Internet access. Children from homes with Internet access are not accepted into any Satmar school. Business Internet usage outside of the home must be filtered. Computer kiosks have been established where individuals can conduct private and business Internet usage 24/6 at minimal cost. Of course, the kiosks are filtered and computer screens are fully viewable and monitored at all times by appointed chassidishe managers.

Several pages in the Satmar weekly newspaper were recently devoted broadsides and articles promoting the rally. The Satmar Rebbe, however, did not call on his followers to attend the rally, nor did he prohibit participation.

Speculation focuses on the possibility that the Rebbe, seeking to conform to the conduct of the Divrei Yoel, founder of Satmar, chooses not to attend any event where foreign languages, i.e. English, might be spoken. Further, with yeshivish and Modern Orthodox participation, not everything discussed or formulated would be necessarily acceptable to the hashgacha of the Satmar community.
