Tziyun Rashbi is Not a Tourist Site

Thousands of Satmar chassidim took part in last week’s marking of the yahrzeit of the Rebbe Shlita’s father, the Beirach Moshe of Satmar ZY”A held in the main Kiryas Yoel beis medrash.

During the yahrzeit tisch, the rebbe spoke about those who are exposed to unfiltered internet in the workplace, stating they have fallen into the hands of the sitra achra. The rebbe stated one must be moser nefesh to avoid such a situation.

The rebbe concluded with reference to Kever Rashbi in Meron, stating the holy site is not a tourist site and as such, those going to the kever to be mispallel should not bring a camera. He stressed that traveling to Rashbi on Lag B’Omer should be for the purpose of davening and not taking photos.

  1. The Tziyun Rashbi is no different than any other Tziyun. If you can take pictures you can take them at all kevorim. If pictures are assur then they are assur at all kevorim. I dont see why he singled out Rashbi.

    Maybe the Satmar hold that one may not take pictures of tziyonim?

  2. WIY he was talking about kever RASHBI since now is the time that people go there but of course he’s talking about all kevarim

  3. If I take a picture of my grandfather’s grave, it doesn’t turn out into a tourist attraction, and leaves its kavod intact. If hundreds of people are popping flashes, that’s a little different. In addition, a tanna deserves even more respect.

  4. #1, what are you not understanding? It’s very obvious what he’s saying. Of course you can take pictures of tziyunim, but the purpose of going should not be to have a good time, it should be to daven. The carnival atmosphere at Kever Rashbi is not appropriate, and he is trying to do something about it. What do you suggest?

  5. If you are a Kehilla Yoel resident this interests or concerns you for the rest of us who are not, its an opinion of this Rebbe and that’s all it is…..

  6. no and there was no such thing as anti tzioni or tzioni at the time of rashbi. and the site of rashbi is a very very holy site so yes there is a difference between rashbis kever and others

    also i have been to meron many times on long baomer and i have tried to take pictures of the tziun then and either the pictures came out blury or my camera randomly broke then so go figure
