Vito Lopez scandal stoking Hasidic sects’ feud

The battle between two Satmar Hasidic sects is about to reach biblical proportions.

The scandal engulfing Assemblyman Vito Lopez — the most powerful ally of Rabbi Zalman Teitelbaum’s faction — has created a window of opportunity for the faction led by older brother Rabbi Aaron Teitelbaum to capture the highly coveted Williamsburg congregation the sibling rivals have fought over for a decade.

At stake is a $372 million real-estate empire.
