The wedding is scheduled for Wednesday, Rosh Chodesh Cheshvan (October 17) in Brooklyn. The last wedding in the Satmar Rebbe’s household took place on June 11, 2008, Isru Chag Shavuos, when Rabbi Elchonon Chaim Fulop married Rebbetzin Hendel, the youngest child of Rabbi Zalman Leib Teitelbaum, Satmar Rebbe, and Rebbetzin Chaya Sarah Teitelbaum, Satmar Rebbetzin. Rabbi Elchonon Chaim is the son of Rabbi Yekusiel Yehuda (Zalman Leib) Fulop, member dayan of the Satmar beis din.
That wedding was attended by tens of thousands of chassidim from around the world in the main Satmar Beis Medrash at 152 Rodney Street, the new Satmar Beis Medrash at 550 Bedford Avenue, and at Ateres Avrohom Hall, 75 Ross Street, adjacent to the Satmar Rebbe’s residence.
The forthcoming marriage will provide chassidim from around the world an opportunity to take part in a grand Satmar simcha. The weddings of the Rebbe’s children, from the time he was anointed as Satmar Rav of Williamsburg, are as follows: Rebbetzin Chana was married in Teves 2002 in the Marcy Avenue Armory; Rabbi Aaron was married on Rosh Chodesh Cheshvan 2003 in the Crainway Building; Rabbi Lipa on Rosh Chodesh Cheshvan 2006 in the New Satmar Beis Medrash on Bedford Avenue; and Rebbetzin Hendel on Isru Chag Shavuos 2008 in the New Satmar Beis Medrash on Bedford Avenue.
The upcoming wedding on Rosh Chodesh Cheshvan will take place in a gigantic area within the Navy Yard Complex that can accommodate the tens of thousands of anticipated guests.Rabbi Gershon Tannenbaum
