In 1935 several young activists broke ranks with the Agudas Yisroel in Yerushalayim. This group soon came to be called the Neturei Karta. Espousing an extreme anti Zionist stance, the Neturei Karta leadership had it’s fair share of colorful characters over the years.

Rav Amram Blau was famous, less so the likes of Rav Leibaleh Weissfish or Rav Dov Sokolovsky. Each one added a dimension to the activities of the Neturei Karta, leading it through external disputes even with the Eidah Hachareidis, and internal ones within the Neturei Karta itself. Not limited to the alleyways of Meah Shearim, their influence was felt in the Vizhnitz court in Bnei Brak, in the United States and beyond.
