Yoel Teitelbaum (1887-1979), better known as the Satmar Rebbe, is perhaps most infamous for his scathing critique of Zionism and the State of Israel. In 1968 he published a book entitled Al Ha-Geulah ve al ha-Temurah (On Redemption and Exchange), his response to the Six-Day War. This book attempts to create a Jewish theology of the Antichrist. In this session, we will study sections of that book in translation and explore his ideas and their implications for contemporary Jewish existence.
