Video, Photos: Satmar Rebbe Arrives in Israel


The Satmar Rebbe arrived in Israel on Sunday night, on the occasion of his granddaughter's wedding which will take place on Wednesday. This is an historical visit by the current Rebbe, his first to Israel since he was appointed.

Immediately after he landed at the Ben Gurion airport, the Rebbe went to Jerusalem and participated in an anti-voting protest rally at the hareidi Mea Shearim neighborhood, where he was greeted by tens of thousands of devotees.
