It's the 33 yartzeit of the Satmar rebbe , Yoel Teitelbaum, and haredim associated with Edah Charedit figures (Rabbi Yair Hoffman, for example) and Satmar hasidim extoll the greatness of a man who was arguably one of the worst Jewish leaders in history.
In the 5 Towns Jewish Times, Rabbi Yair Hoffman writes that:
Those that knew the Satmar Rebbe, Rav Yoel Teitelbaum zt”l, loved him. After the Nazi beasts yimach shmam almost completely destroyed European Jewry, the Rebbe faced one of the most enormous challenges a spiritual leader could face. And he succeeded. The Satmar Rebbe rebuilt a broken nation, one person at a time.
He took broken men. He taught them. He inspired them.…
Of course there were hard line positions that he had taken that were not understood by others. But no matter where anyone stands, and by any yardstick, he was a Tzaddik Gammur and a Gadol HaDor.…
But Teitelbaum was a fraud, a man whose decisions killed Jews, a man who refused to thank his Zionist rescuers or to even acknowledge they had saved him. In pre-War Hungary, he was widely considered to be a bully and a thug.
