  1. I remember the levaya almost like yesterday. Did not understand even 1 word of any hespeidim as I was pretty young. One thing that I remember vividly was even though the Satmar community was in a state of deep mourning almost like losing a parent, they had the presence of mind to set up a huge area of food and drinks for all the people who came to the levaya!
