Teitelbaum, Moses


Teitelbaum, Moses
▪ 2007

      Hungarian-born rabbi (b. Nov. 17, 1914, Ujfeherto, Hung.—d. April 24, 2006, New York, N.Y.), served from 1979 until his death as the spiritual leader of the Satmar Hasidim, an ultra-Orthodox Jewish sect that increased its membership more than 50% under Teitelbaum's leadership. After succeeding his uncle Rabbi Joel Teitelbaum, the nephew expanded the sect's holdings, building schools and expanding their real-estate interests. Though two of his sons became involved in a bitter succession battle that threatened to divide members, the sect continued to increase its membership under Teitelbaum.
