Pataki mourns Satmar Rebbe

NYGOV: STATEMENT FROM GOVERNOR GEORGE E. PATAKI "Today I join the Congregation of Satmar Hasidim, and many other New Yorkers, in mourning the loss of Grand Rebbe Moses Teitelbaum. A survivor of the Holocaust, Grand Rebbe Moses Teitelbaum carried on the legacy of his uncle and predecessor Rebbe Joel Teitelbaum in rebuilding a community that was devastated by the Nazis. Today, New York is home to a flourishing network of Satmar schools and religious institutions that will live on as a tribute to the Teitelbaums. The Rebbe Moses Teitelbaum touched and inspired the countless people who came into contact with him while shepherding his congregation to enormous growth over the past decades of his leadership. May his memory be a blessing for all of us."
