JERUSALEM (JTA) — The Satmar Rebbe distributed $5 million to 150 anti-Zionist institutions.

Zalman Teitelbaum was in Israel to present the heads of the institutions with checks made out in shekels, The Jerusalem Post reported. The checks were distributed on Thursday night in the Satmar stronghold of Beit Shemesh.

The ceremony to distribute the checks is called Pure Shekel.

Satmar ideology holds that there should not be a Jewish state and the Jews should remain in exile until the redemption, or coming of the Messiah.

Teitelbaum is in Israel for a 10-day visit to distribute the money and meet with his followers of his Hasidic movement.

  1. And you wonder why some of Isreal’s km’s Object to allowing him in
    But 5 million oh please it does nothing for these institutions
    They hate the government but take money from them

    • “Was a Democrat” and loved Jews. All Jews, Satmar, Agudah, Chiloni. Kol Yiosroel. ” Than did repentance” (Republican? I assume) Now I hate most of them like all Anti Jewish posters here. Satmar, NK, Bernie, Soros,Agudah,Liberal,Chiloni all combined about 95% of the JEWS. We know..

    • Satmar doesnt take money from the Israeli government. They dont want their government to have a say in their education nor force them to join their IDF. They want to live and let live independently.
