The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2020


Aaron Teitelbaum


Rabbi Aaron Teitelbaum is the leader of part of the Satmar Hasidic community based in Kiryas Joel, an Orthodox enclave in New York’s Orange County. In Oct. 2020, Teitelbaum was in the headlines after he forcefully condemned protests against coronavirus lockdown restrictions mounted by Orthodox Jews in Brooklyn’s Borough Park neighborhood. "None of you should be seen at these protests," Teitelbaum declared. “Praise unto the person who doesn’t follow in the ways of evil.” (Photo: Wikimedia / Creative Commons License)
