Do Satmar hassidim follow the Mishnah Berurah? If this is not the case, what sefer or sefarim do they use?

  • Just as a provisional, partial answer, I know they don't follow the MB because up until very recently they not only let out shabbos at the R''T zman, they also took it in at that time, which lead to some weird situations. – Tatpurusha Jul 14 '14 at 20:31
  • There are instances where people deviate from the Mishna Brurah and rely on another shittah it dies not mean they don't usually pasken like him – sam Jul 14 '14 at 20:43

    Welcome to Mi Yodeya. Interesting first question. I think that there are other communities, including a few Litvishe yeshivas (but I'm not sure which ones) that look at other authorities ahead of the Mishna Berurah, and I'd also like to know which ones. – Bruce James Jul 14 '14 at 20:54
  • Maybe learning the Sugya (up to late acharonim) and Shimush? – Shmuel Brin Jul 14 '14 at 20:56

The chassidim in communities i know, this means poskim and dayanim, who bishita don't view the mishna berurah as the posek achron rely upon the rav shulchan aruch. This is a general attitude, not limited to satmar.

    Do you mean the Shulchan Aruch haRav? – Mol Jul 14 '14 at 21:33
  • Yes. But chassidim call it rav shulchan aruch. – user6591 Jul 14 '14 at 21:38

    Satmar Chassidim do learn Shulchan Aruch Horav in their Yeshivos and generally follow his rulings. – Meir Zirkind Jul 15 '14 at 3:53

    Its ok. I've been called worse by better people. I also know Rabbi Frankel who fed Reb Yoel all the lashon hara about the state before he wrote Vayoel Moshe, so I know nothing in there was written with the clear objectiveness a seffer deserves. – user6591 Jul 17 '14 at 17:16

I've been in a Yeshiva with Satmar guys. By Halacha Seder they learnt Mishnah Berira. Reb Leibel Willger isn't Satmar but he uses Mishnah Berira all the time!
