Satmar is the largest Hasidic group in existence today. Originating in Hungary, the members were dispersed by the Holocaust and World War II. Large numbers of Satmar Hasidim live in Williamsberg and Kiryas Joel in New York, as well as London and Israel. The sect is most widely known for the opposition to Zionism of its most prominent leaders, Rabbi Moses Teitelbaum and his predecessor Rabbi Joel Teitelbaum.
