Police cuffed 26 Satmar Hasidim and charged them with burglary and criminal mischief after they entered a Williamsburg synagogue office, officials said yesterday.
The intrusion appeared to be part of a continuing dispute between factions supporting two sons of Satmar Grand Rabbi Moses Teitelbaum for leadership of the community.
The arrests at 9:49 p.m. Tuesday came on the Jewish Holiday of Simchat Torah, which began at sundown Tuesday.[...]
They also charged private guards brought guard dogs into the synagogue.
"To bring a dog in a synagogue is unbelievable," said Abe Klein, 29, a follower of Aaron. "That's like a real, real, real bad thing - like you're bringing a dog on God."

- poor fashion taste (hat-bags)
- fighting in shul
- poor vocabulary
