The Grand Rabbi's Bagleiten Ceremony | HIGH HOLIDAYS in the streets of JEWISH BROOKLYN ep 6 (video)

For my last video in this series, I attend a Bagleiten. A Bagleiten is a special tradition of the Satmar sect, and it takes place at the end of three major holidays: Sukkos, Shavuos and Passover. The entire congregation accompanies the grand rabbi home at the end of each of these holidays, and the Rabbi steps out on the balcony to address the congregation. Hasidic Rabbis are in a way royalty, and this ceremony is a royal procession with the presence of the New York police force and lively crowds. Due to the split in the Satmar sect, the Bagleiten is not as big as it used to be.
