Satmar Rebbe Forced to Partially Disrobe for TSA Agents At The Airport (Photos)

Satmar Chassidim were not too happy with the TSA, as the Satmar Rebbe of Williamsburg (Rav Zalman Leib) was forced to partially disrobe at the airport as he returned from vacation in Miami Beach.

The alarm sounded as the Rebbe passed through the metal detector, and the TSA agent requested the rabbi to step aside.  The rebbe’s gabbaim attempted to influence the security staff that this was not respectable, but to no avail.

Security officials explained they do not make exceptions for anyone and the Rebbe was forced to remove some of his clothing.
