New York - Historic footage of the Satmar Rebbe, Reb Yoel Teitelbaum zt’l, has emerged as thousands are expected to flock today to Kiryas Joel for the Rebbe’s 36th yahrtzeit.

The footage shows throngs of thousands of exuberant Chasidim accompanying the Divrei Yoel from the old Satmar Beis Medrash at 550 Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg to a waiting car prior to his last trip to Eretz Yisroel in June 1965.

Also seen are many women who turned out for the occasion as well as hundreds of flag waving children pushing their way onto a school bus, desperate for an opportunity to see the Rebbe off before he set sail for Eretz Yisroel, with one youngster climbing in through the bus’s open windows.

The Berach Moshe, successor to the Rebbe, can be seen in the footage which also includes touching shots of the Rebbe’s wife, Rebbetzin Alta Faiga Teitelbaum as the Rebbe departed from Williamsburg.

The Satmar Rebbe’s tzion is located in the Kiryas Joel cemetery on Schunnemunk Road.  Well over 50,000 men are expected to come to the beis olam today to light candles, bring kvitlach and to daven at the Rebbe’s kever.  This past Sunday, the tzion was opened exclusively for women to pay their respects to the Rebbe who died on August 19, 1979 at the age of 92.

Maybe someone can clarify but why would he have been going to EY when he so much opposed the establishment of the medinah prior to z'man moishiach.

I believe the Rebbe, zt'l, had a deep love of Eretz Yisroel.

זכותו יגן עלינו A real Tzadik which we will never see until Moshiach.

The Satmar rebbe was the Rav in Yerushalayim Eida Hachareidis even though he lived in the states. He used to travel there to give support to all yidden who were not part of the Zionists. He was there once before about ten years prior the Holocaust.
After the war he lived for a short while in Eretz Yisroel. He loved and desired the holy land and that is one of the reasons he was so anti the establishment of a Jewish state before the coming of Moshiach.He couldn't sit by being quiet knowing the holy land which is holiest by Jews the Palterin Shel Melech is full of secular people living a life as non-Jews.

And even IF it would of been a religious run government all a bunch of holy people still it is not allowed to have a Jewish state.
It is a must for every Jew who seeks the truth to learn his Sefer Vayoel Moshe and El hagualh val Hatmurah where he writes clearly everything about the evil of Zionism. The sefer is based on the Torah,Talmud,Rambam all down to the Achronim.

The fact that it's also the medinah of Israel doesn't change the reality that it's still Eretz Yisroel.

Keshushas Eretz Yisroel has nothing to do with the State of Israel. The medinah has been around for 67 years. The Kedusha has been there for over 3000 years

"A real Tzadik which we will never see until Moshiach"
Why do you try to create a Satmar version of the Chabad Moishichist nonsense? Do you plan on running up and down Bedford Avenue (instead of Eastern Parkway) with a yellow flag and insisting Reb Yolish rather than Reb MMS will be coming back "soon"? Reb Yolish was definitely a real Tzadik as you say and lets leave it at that.

Where do you see in what he wrote that he is even remotely near what Chabad did with the Rebbe?

Amazing historical footage. True Satmar Chassidim will not view the film. They are totally opposed to any use of technology, except for parnosah. This will never be publicly shown by any Satmar organization. Nevertheless, it is priceless. Also of considerable note is the women in the film. Today, their being so close is outlawed. Also, the colorful clothing is considered today against tzniyus. Especially interesting are the woman on the ship, standing alongside men in close proximity to the Rebbe zt"l. The Rebbetzin, a"h, spoke at the funeral in 1979 when the Rebbe was niftar. Something we'll probably never see happen again.

The rebbe had a far look. He knew the tzionim are far worse today then in his time . In his time they were cutting up jewish dead bodies in forced autopsies and chillul shabbos. Who would imagine there would be tattoo shops and toieva parades

I went to a Levaya today. Women and girls were not allowed to be seen. I said where does Halacha forbid women at a Levaya. The head guy said "my Halacha forbids it" I said I prefer HaShem's Halacha. He told me if women can be seen "the show won't start".

You need to stop paying attention to the bumper stickers. The rebbe ztl had a great love for EY and all yidin therein. His problem was with the tzionistishe medina. When the rebbe for out of Hungary, do you know where he went first worth intention of settling.... ERETZ YISROEL!!

You obviously have your head in the sand. I'll bet the video was already seen but a major chunk of the kehilla. Stupid they aren't!

The Rebbe z"l was one of the last living kanaim but more importantly he was a great ohaiv yisroel. Halevai that his followers should include his ahavas yisroel in their interpretation of his shitta and not just demand that everyone else follow his shitta because it is the only correct one, which it isn't.

I see people (children and adults alike) pushing, pulling, even being hit by others and a school boy being pushed into a school bus through the window. The Rebbe, ZTL, could not see this happening around him. But now seeing the film unfortunately this has not changed today. Manners? Far Vos? The papers and dirt on the ground on the today's pictures.....no it seems that middos have no part in this....so the women left the scene but the manners stayed.
