Satmar Rebbe Gets Stopped By Airport Security

Rabbi Zalman Leib TeitelbaumThe Williamsburg Satmar Rebbe Rabbi Zalman Teitelbaum was stopped by TSA agents on his way back to New York from his winter vacation in, I'm told Miami Beach. (His brother, the Kiryas Joel Satmar Rebbe, vacations in Palm Springs, California and prays at the Chabad House there.) It was a routine check, and nothing illegal was found. But since we have pictures…

Such security checks are warranted, no matter what one's station is in life.

P.S. I wonder what the reception will be like if he visits the State of Israel just before the election ?

How do you say "Don't touch my junk" in Yiddish?

Haha awesome!

In the early 1990's, Formula 1 legend Ayrton Senna had his passport photo replaced by a team mate with a photo of male genitalia of equivalent size. Senna's fame meant he rarely had his passport checked, but on a later trip to Argentina this prank resulted in officials holding the Brazilian for 24 hours.

It seems that Mossad agents in Miami wishing to stop Teitelbaum visiting Israel to illegally distribute funds to bribe yeshivas not to allow their talmidim to vote, played the same trick.

However, Baruch Hashem, this Zionist conspiracy failed when US border guards concluded that Teitelbaums resemblance was sufficiently close to the photo in his passport, to allow him through.

I guess being a Satmar rebbe pays well and mostly in cash.

The satmerer rebbi goes from one vacation to another his whole life is a vacation next is going upstate for summer does he ever earn his living or just lives of others work,what a racket he has going for him.

Wait, hold on. Did you just say the KJ Satamar Rebbe goes to CHABAD in Palm Springs?! Please elaborate, Shmarya, for this alone is noteworthy.

Zalmi tietelbaum will be flying delta airlines this motzie shabis january 12th on the nonstop jfk-tlv. This based on info from jdn.co.il

What about the hasidic injunction not to look at goyim?

when i read the title , my first thought was they found two pounds of ecstacy on him .

the authorities are tightly focused on chassidim at airport , MORE THAN ANY NORMAL TRAVELER , bc they have a strong potential of smuggling drugs [ for money, of course ].

security at airport should not feel embarrassed to search him , especially around his ' private parts' . they should use examination gloves to avoid getting an infection .

TO Jabba.

Nice pics
When did the satmar "rebbe" look like that??????

To Yochanan

I think you can "Don't chapsem" as a loose trancilation.. Mabey Weberman a satmar chusid can correct me if i'm wrong.

"How do you say "Don't touch my junk" in Yiddish?'

K'vud k'dishes admor shlit'a has no junk down there. He uses it only for holy purposes. Most other have plenty of junkdown there.

"Rir nisht un mayne gilgul sheleg"

In the bottom picture, who is the dude with the ID card and what kind of ID is it?

"Rir nisht un mayne gilgul sheleg"
What to whom will he say that the goyim dont speak yiddish why need to know it,well my yiddish would translate it to , rir nisht un myne baytzim :))

Sorry that you posted you own pictures.

You are "ah Grobyan" in the full sense and in any way you translate that.

i had a feeling the TSA were 'aroni's, now its confirmed.

Isn't Miami Beach known for bare breasts and go-go boyz?

The TSA guy said של נעליך מעל רגליך

He was not "strip searched."

Matzav is not only days late to the story, it got it wrong.
