An interesting development in the institutions of Satmar Beit Midrash, which belonged to a member of the Association of Rabbis, in the past, will become a Satmar Talmud Torah, the presidency of the Mhr"y Satmar Rebbe.

Williamsburg Satmar institutions, counters over ten thousand students. Past week, purchased a new building, fifteenth in the series, to be used in the building for kindergarten and yeshiva ketana.

But it turns out that the building has a glorious history.

When Satmar institutions board members began to make contacts for the purchase of the building, they were shocked to find this building was once a Beis Midrash "Tiferes Yisrael", which was founded in תרפ"ד by rabbi of the community Rabbi Israel Doswitz zt"l president and chairman of Association of Rabbis U.S. Rabbi Doswitz died in תשט"ז and slowly the community disintegrated and dispersed.

In the following years the building was owned by gentiles and served as a special needs kindergarten. The facts were brought before the Rebbe, president of the institutions was asked to end the negotiations and purchase the building quickly, thus returning the former glory to the building.

This week, as noted, the building officially became a Satmar institution of Torah.
