Satmar Chassunah

On Wednesday, October 17, Dovid Elimelech Halberstam will marry the daughter of Rabbi Hanoch Henach Ashkenazi, son-in-law of Rabbi Aaron Teitelbaum, Satmar Rebbe. Rabbi Hanoch Henach serves as the Rav of Beis Medrash Avnei Tzedek in the Atzei Temarim section of Kiryas Yoel.

Rabbi Hanoch Henach, father of the kallah, is the son of Rabbi Yitzchok Ashkenazi, Alesker Rebbe; son of Rabbi Elimelech Ashkenazi, zt”l (1916-2012), Melbourne Seagate Rav. The Alesker Rebbe is the son-in-law of Rabbi Menachem Mendel Shlomo Taub, zt”l (1901-1977), Kaliver Rebbe in Williamsburg and author of Chakal Tapuchin.

The chassan’s father is Rabbi Avrohom Halberstam, Rav of Khal Minchas Chinuch in Boro Park and Rosh Kollel Tartikov. Rabbi Avrohom is the son of Rabbi Boruch Noson Halberstam, zt”l (1922-2006), Keshaniver Rebbe in Boro Park; son of Rabbi Dovid Halberstam, zt”l, Keshaniver Rebbe; son of Rabbi Boruch Halberstam, zt”l (yahrzeit 11th Tishrei), Keshaniver Rebbe; son of Rabbi Moshe Halberstam, zt”l (d. 1915), Keshaniver Rebbe; son of Rabbi Dovid Halberstam, zt”l (1818-1893), Keshaniver Rebbe; second son of Rabbi Chaim Halberstam, zt”l (1797-1876), revered Sanzer Rebbe and author of Divrei Chaim. Rabbi Boruch Noson Halberstam’s mother, Rebbetzin Rivah Malka a”h, was the daughter of Rabbi Chaim Yitzchok Yeruchom, zt”l Hy”d (1864-1943), Altshtater Rav , murdered during the Holocaust.

Rabbi Avrohom Halberstam is the son-in-law of Rabbi Asher Aleksander Babad, zt”l (1910-1985), Tartikover Rav who lost his wife and children in the Holocaust. Emigrating to the United States in the early 1950s, Rabbi Usher reestablished his family and the remnants of his congregation, first on the Upper West Side of Manhattan and later in Boro Park. Rabbi Asher was the son of Rabbi Yitzchok Babad, zt”l, Tartikover Rav; descendent of Rabbi Yosef Babad, zt”l (1790-1874), Tarnopoler Rav and author of Minchas Chinuch, a widely studied work on the 613 commandments of the Torah. The Minchas Chinuch was a brother-in-law of the Rabbi Chaim Halberstam, zt”l (1793-1876), Sanzer Rav and author of Divrei Chaim.

The aufruf took place this past Shabbos in Khal Minchas Chinuch in Boro Park and was followed by a gala kiddush attended by thousands. On the day of the chassunah, buses will bring guests from Bedford Avenue at the BQE in Williamsburg at 4:30, 5:15, 6:15, 6:45, 7:30, 8:15, and 10:15, returning at 7:45, 9:00, 10:15, 11:00, and after the mitzvah tantz; and from 49th Street down from 18th Avenue to Fort Hamilton Parkway at 3:45 and at 6:20 and returning at 7:45 and after the mitzvah tantz.

Satmar Rebbe

The chassunah will take place in Kiryas Yoel. The Satmar Rebbe will receive kvitlech at his home on Sanz Court prior to the chassunah from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. The Main Beis Medrash in Kiryas Yoel will close at 1 p.m. for wedding preparations. Minchah minyanim will be conducted in the Ekstein Hall on the lower level of the shul building. The kabbalas panim for the chassan will take place in the Kollel Hall beginning at 5:30. The kabbalas panim for the kallah will be held on the first level of the Keren Vayoel Moshe Building starting at 5:30.

The chassan will be escorted with song and dance to the badeken ceremony beginning at 6:30. The chuppah is scheduled for 6:45 on an elevated platform in the shul’s parking lot.

The Satmar Rebbe, while still on the platform after the chuppah, will bless everyone collectively. A fleet of coach buses will be standing by to ferry all ladies to the Beis Rochel Paradise Hall where they will be served the chassunah meal. Special buses are reserved for family members. Men will come to the Main Beis Medrash where the entire middle level, including the entrance lobby, has been prepared for the serving of the wedding banquet meal. Yeshiva students will be positioned on multi-level standing bleachers where they will be served sandwiches and cold drinks. In addition, all guests will be able to partake of smorgasbord tables.

The Satmar Rebbe will rejoin the simcha at 9 p.m., at which time all tables and chairs will be moved aside. The chassan and the kallah will enter their respective meal settings at 9:15. Birchas HaMazon is scheduled for 11 p.m., followed by the arrival of the ladies to the ladies’ galleries for the mitzvah tantz.

Today, fifty years and six million (!) people later, Israel is truly a different world.

There will always be items that don’t freeze well – salads and some rice- or potato-based dishes – so you need to leave time to prepare or cook them closer to Yom Tov and ensure there is enough room in the refrigerator to store them.

This is an important one in raising a mentsch (and maybe even in marrying off a mentsch! listening skills are on the top of the list when I do shidduch coaching).

While multitasking is not ideal, it is often necessary and unavoidable.

Maybe now that your kids are back in school, you should start cleaning for Pesach.

The interpreter was expected to be a talmid chacham himself and be able to also offer explanations and clarifications to the students.
