Jerusalem - Jewish history was made last night as for the first time in over thirty years, the Belzer and Satmar Rebbes met in the home of the Belzer Rebbe in Telz Stone.
The meeting, which took place at 12:50 AM Israel time, lasted over thirty minutes and hundreds of chasidim and onlookers waited outside to catch a historic glimpse of the heads of the two Chasidic sects, who are brothers in law, meeting together.
The last several weeks have been spent ironing out the particulars of the meeting between.
Telz Stone was sealed off completely today, with only residents permitted to enter the area and the Belzer Rebbe's house on Rechov Baal Shem Tov was surrounded by heavy security.
The Satmar Rebbe, R' Aron Teitelbaum, who is in Israel for a wedding, was accompanied by three of his Gabbaim and traveled from Bnei Brak to Telz Stone in a caravan that totaled twenty five vehicles. The Belzer Rebbe who had been staying in Jerusalem for the past few weeks went to his apartment in Telz Stone specifically for this meeting and was accompanied by his son R' Aharon Mordechai Rookeach, R' Shimon Wolf Klein, R' Michel Firer, R' Pinchas Friedman, R' Mordechai Brisk, R' Mordechai Ringel, R' Zev Farkas and R' Aharon Fried. The two Chasidic leaders reportedly discussed customs of their respective Chasidic sects.
