An unusual meeting took place last night in Bnei Brak close to midnight. Rabbi Shimon Elituv, of Yerushalayim, spoke privately with the Satmar Rebbe at his residence. The conversation was about the spiritual and material state of the Jews in Argentina. Rabbi Elituv served as Rov in Argentina, and there is a large Satmar community there as well.
The Satmar Rebbe admires Rabbi Elituv's work with at risk youth and remarked that this is the call of the hour-to find ways to open various programs for them and instill in them a love for Torah and Chassius.
The Satmar Rebbe was interested to know where Rabbi Elituv learned his fluent Yiddish, and Rabbi Elituv explained that he learned Yiddish from the Sefer Maamorim 5701-02 when he was a young talmid in Tomchei Tmimim in Lod.
Two prominent Torah figures also wanted to meet with the Satmar Rebbe but were not given an appointment since they gave their approbation to the book "Hagaon" that is disrespectful of the Baal Shem Tov and his successors.
