LETTER FROM THE EDITOR Hi Everyone, Just because the Purim merriment is over, doesn’t mean it’s time to stop the laughter and joy! That’s why the Buzz Magazine, Brooklyn’s only frum publication delivered door to door, has ramped up this issue with a whole slew of fantastic articles for your reading fun and enjoyment. Our Cholent Pot features intriguing letters to the editor and spot-on responses to previously submitted personal dilemmas. We explain the true meaning of ‘shelo osani isha’ and why it’s necessary for our Rabbonim to censor what we hear and see. In the article ‘Buying Time’ we focus on the importance of preserving every moment, while the ‘Three Most Important Words’ teach just how significant are the little things we say to those we love. You’ll be enthralled by the miraculous story ‘Long Lost Numbers,’ in which a loving reunion is brought about through Divine providence. Laugh out loud at our nostalgic look back at 400 years of Jewish food, and giggle at yet another wild shidduch episode in Mismatched. With the latest news, the greatest recipes, and the savviest technology, the Buzz has got something for everyone!

The Kishke

The Potatoes

Dear Editor, I’m 23 years old, and I just became a kallah two months ago. I’ve been meeting with my chosson once a week, and things are going fine except for the fact that I’ve lately become very anxious. I find myself listening carefully to every word he says, looking to find something wrong with him. Of course, over all this time we’re together he’s said a few things that bothered me slightly. That’s only normal, as everyone says silly things sometimes. But I can’t stop trying to interpret these slipups! Intellectually, I know that nobody’s perfect, but it’s like I’m trying to find my chosson’s faults so that I’ll be prepared for any surprises in the future. How do I know if my pre-wedding jitters are normal, or if I should call things off? K.P.

Dear Editor, I’m eighteen years old, and my parents are just now going through a divorce. Of course, I love them both and I hate to see them go their separate ways. I understand why the divorce was necessary, but the pain is tremendous. They’re being very good about my feelings, and trying as hard as possible to be civil toward each other. Still, I’m not sure how to be supportive of them both without taking sides. I don’t want to hurt either one of them, but I want to let each of them know that I sympathize. It’s hard to show love to one without offending the other. Y.N.

The Spilled Beans Dear Editor, I haven’t asked my boss for a raise in three years. He’s a tough guy, and I’m too nervous to approach him about it. I don’t know what to say or how to say it. It’s not like I’ve done anything special at work recently that would deserve a raise, but I’ve been working at the same salary all this time and I could really use the extra cash. Any ideas on how to go about it? Thanks, H.R.

The Flanken Dear Editor, There’s a very mean girl who works with me in an office. She’s always making snide comments and trying to outdo me in front of the boss. I’ve tried ignoring her, even though it’s been very difficult. I feel like it’s gotten to the point where I have to do something, though I don’t want to threaten her. I want to stay calm and I’m afraid once I react to her, I’ll lose all control. I keep telling myself that anyone who acts this way must be dealing with issues that have nothing at all to do with me. I wonder if I should confront her or just keep swallowing my pride? N.W.

SHIDDUCHIM

Mismatched! True stories of disaster dates, submitted by our readers! BY Anonoymous Reader

I

waited for my date to arrive. I kept looking from my watch to the window, and back again, hoping he wouldn’t be too late. Eventually, a car drove up and parked in front of my house. It desperately needed a coat of paint, one of the windows was wrapped in a double layer of duct tape, and smoke billowed out of the hood. The car limped forward on all four wheels like a sagging, bagging, junk-heap hunk of tin. By the time my date finished parking, the engine sputtered and died. The guy got out and apologized profusely for showing up in that clunker. Then he sheepishly suggested we take the train to Manhattan. We walked in to a fancy restaurant, and took our seats. A white-gloved waiter came over and asked what we’d like to order. I looked at my date’s face and saw that he’d suddenly gone beet red. I signaled the waiter that we’d like some privacy for a few minutes and asked him what was the matter. He cleared his throat and said, “I… um… I keep my wallet in my jacket.” I waited, wondering why that confession was so embarrassing. “And?” I prompted. “Don’t most people keep their wallets in their jackets?” “Yes.” He swallowed. “But most people don’t keep their jackets in their

cars.” “Oh.” So I paid for dinner. We had a pleasant conversation, he was pretty enjoyable company. Then the waiter asked us if we’d like something to drink. I asked my date

what he’d prefer, and his eyes lit up with sudden inspiration. “We’ll have just two glasses of hot water,” he pronounced. “Just hot water?” I asked. “Yep. Wait ‘till you see what I’ve

got.” The waiter came back carrying two glasses of steaming water. I thanked him, and he left. Then I tuned in to what my date was doing. He dug deep into his pants pocket, and pulled out a crumpled, crimped little tea bag. “See that? We can make our own tea!” I gaped, my mouth hanging open in astonishment. “Our own tea!? Why in the world would you carry a tea bag in your pocket?” “Well, you know, a glass of tea costs a fortune in these places. I figured, why not bring a tea bag along and save ourselves the expense.” Now, don’t get me wrong. I respect a person who’s frugal with their money. But in my opinion, this was taking things to an extreme. After riding the train, paying for dinner, and drinking shatnes-tested, woolflavored tea, I called the shadchan to let her no I would not be going out with that particular boy again. My date’s last name was Wissotzky.

HUMOR

400 Years of Eating Latkas By M. Goldbrenner

A

pancake-like structure not to be confused with anything the House of Pancakes would put out. In a latka, the oil is in the pancake. It is made with potatoes, onions, eggs and matzo meal. There is a rumor that in the time of the Maccabees they lit a latka by mistake and it burned for eight days. What is certain is you will have heartburn for the same amount of time. Matzoh: Matzoh is the Egyptians’ revenge for leaving slavery. It consists of a simple mix of flour and water, and has no eggs or flavor at all. When made well, it could actually taste like cardboard. Its redeeming value is that it does fill you up and stays with you for a long time. However, it is recommended that you eat a few prunes soon after. Kasha Varnishkes: One of the little-known delicacies which are even more difficult to pronounce than to cook. It has nothing to do with Varnish, but is basically a mixture of buckwheat and bow-tie macaroni

[noodles]. Why a bow-tie? Many people discussed this and agreed that

some Jewish mother once said: “You can’t come to the table without a tie!” or, G-d forbid “An elbow on my table?!” Blintzes:

One observer claims it began when a fortune cookie fell into his chicken soup. Not to be confused with the German war machine, Blitzkrieg. Can you imagine the N.J. Post 1939 headlines:

16 Bringing you the Buzz on Savings & Events I To advertise, call 718-513-9885

“Germans drop tons of cheese and blueberry blintzes over Poland shortage of sour cream expected.” Basically, this is the Jewish answer to crepe Suzette. Kishka: In the old days they would take an intestine and stuff it. Today we use parchment paper or plastic. And what do you stuff it with? Carrots, celery, onions, flour and spices. But the trick is not to cook it alone but to add it to the cholent [see below] and let it cook for 24 hours until there is no chance whatsoever that there is any nutritional value left. Kreplach: It sounds worse than it tastes. There is a Jewish debate about its origins: One observer claims it began when a fortune cookie fell into his chicken soup. The other claims it started in an Italian restaurant. Either way it can be soft, hard or soggy and the amount of meat inside depends on whether it is your mother or your mother-in-law who cooked it. Cholent: This combination of noxious gases had been the secret weapon of Jews for centuries. The unique combination of beans, barley, potatoes, and bones or meat is meant to stick to your ribs and anything else it comes into contact

HUMOR with. At a fancy Mexican restaurant [kosher, of course] I once heard this comment from a youngster who had just had his first taste of Mexican fried beans: “What! Do they serve leftover cholent here too?!” My wife once tried something unusual for guests: She made cholent burgers for Sunday night supper. The guests never came back. Gefilte Fish: A few years ago, I had problems with the filter in my fish pond and a few of them got rather stuck and mangled. My son (5 years old) looked at them and commented “Is that why we call it ‘Ge Filtered Fish’?” Originally, it was a carp stuffed with a minced fish and

vegetable mixture. Today it usually comprises of small fish balls eaten with horseradish [“chrain”] which is judged on its relative strength in bringing tears to your eyes at 100 paces. Bagels: How can we finish without the quintessential Jewish Food, the bagel? Like most foods, there are legends surrounding the bagel, although I don’t know any. There have been persistent rumors that the inventors of the bagel were the Norwegians who couldn’t get anyone to buy smoked lox. Think about it: Can you picture yourself eating lox on white bread? Rye? A cracker? Naaa. They looked for something hard and

Toshiba Unveils

Disease-Detecting Breathalyzer By Relaxnews

J

apan’s Toshiba on Tuesday unveiled a breathalyzer that it says can detect a wide range of diseases just 30 seconds after a person blows into the machine. The device, about the size of a small dishwasher, has a nozzle into which the patient blows several times. It then analyzes the puffs for traces

of several gases, which can signal the presence of several health problems including diabetes, stomach ailments, and even the ordinary hangover. “A breath exhaled into the machine is irradiated with an infrared laser, and then trace gases are detected,” the company said in a statement. Those gases include acetaldehyde, methane, and acetone, all of which can point to the presence of various

36 Bringing you the Buzz on Savings & Events I To advertise, call 718-513-9885

health problems. Toshiba said it would expand the number of gases—and diseases—that its machine can detect, with an eye to starting commercial production next year. The healthcare segment is a key unit for Toshiba, which is best known for its consumer electronics.

HEALTH

Baby Flat Head Syndrome: One Mother’s Story

I

cradled my baby in my arms and listened to her rhythmic breathing. All was right with the world. I cupped my hands under her tiny head and cooed. Then, I noticed it. Something was wrong. Her head did not feel smooth and round like my other babies had. The shape of Avigayil’s head somehow felt different in my right and left hand. I lifted Avigayil up to get a closer look and make sure I wasn’t just a paranoid mother imagining things. Avigayil was 3 ½ months old and no, I wasn’t imagining things! Only a mother would notice this, but I could tell Avigayil’s head was flat on the back, towards the right. The front was round and curved, but the back of her head was flat. Was I getting carried away, or were her ears uneven, too? I went to my pediatrician in a panic and explained what I saw. He examined her and tried to calm me, but I was still nervous. He said that Avigayil’s head would reshape itself in a few months. He prescribed more tummy time, repositioning at night, and I complied. I waited and waited some more. I tried positioning her on her right side. I tried positioning her on her left side. I bought an “Exer-saucer” so she would be motivated to play while upright. I listened to her scream in frustration when I placed her on her stomach -- not one of her favorite positions, I quickly learned. I did whatever I could to keep her off her back. Nothing changed. I was frightened and concerned.

By; Rochelle B. Silberman Was everyone around me taking this too lightly? I pictured my beautiful little girl growing up with a deformed head. If there was anything I could do to help my baby, I was willing to try. That’s when my professional insights kicked in. My two decades as an orthotist, fitting orthotics and braces (no, they’re not just for feet) taught me the wonders o f t h e

right splint or appliance, a n d most importantly, about my right to seek a second opinion. I asked my pediatrician to refer me to a pediatric neurologist and promptly made an appointment. Avigayil was 4 ½ months old at the time. Back Sleeping: A Caveat for a Lifesaver Dr. W., Avigayil’s neurologist said that Avigayil had a condition called positional plagiocephaly. In other words, the bones of her skull were

38 Bringing you the Buzz on Savings & Events I To advertise, call 718-513-9885

not the usual, symmetrical shape. This was something I was extremely familiar with as an orthotist, but as the mother of a child with this diagnosis, it shocked me. Avigayil’s condition was a common problem with a simple solution. A little physiology lesson first: The skull feels like one large hard bone, but it didn’t start out that way. Nature’s wisdom restrains the skull bones from suturing together so that they can slide over each other in the birth canal. The fontanels or soft spots on a baby’s head are there until the bones seal together. Since 1992, when the National Institute of Health created the “Back to Sleep” campaign, the number of babies with positional plagiocephaly has been on the rise. To prevent sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), parents were instructed to flip babies on their backs for naps and nighttime. In due course, occurrences of SIDS dropped by 38% since 1992. However because babies now spent more time on their backs, cases of positional plagiocephaly or poor positional molding rose by 70% within the same time frame. Furthermore, the ’92 backsleeping campaign coincided with the rise of portable car seats used as baby carriers. Between the two, babies were spending more time with their heads against flat surfaces. Babies’ soft skull bones were paying the price. Shockingly, when the first wave of “Back to Sleep” babies turned up with a higher incidence of plagiocephaly, doctors reached for their scalpels

HEALTH instead of other measures. They misdiagnosed babies as suffering from cranio-synostosis, a serious condition that occurs when the bones of the skull fuse together too soon. Cramped brains don’t function as they should. Risky four-hour surgeries were scheduled to resolve the problem… and performed unnecessarily. In Children’s Hospital in Denver, 215 babies underwent the surgery in one year. Once the correlation between back sleeping and positional molding was made, the numbers plummeted. Since then, surgeons in the same hospital performed the surgery only a small fraction of that. Baby Helmets Help During Avigayil’s appointment, Dr. W. prescribed a special helmet, also known as a cranial remolding orthosis. The helmet, made of ultralight plastic and other state-of-theart orthopedic materials, would guide Avigayil’s head in a controlled growth to a more rounded shape. To benefit from the therapy, Avigayil would have to wear the helmet 23 hours a day for 3 - 4 months. The initial fitting for the helmet (which looks like a bike helmet but cuter) was similar to a fitting for a first pair of shoes. Avigayil squirmed, but it was over within a few minutes. The entire procedure was completely painless. After a week of wearing the helmet, which covered her forehead and the back of her head with an opening at the top, I could feel Avigayil’s head returning to normal. My relief made me want to shout the news from the rooftops. However, one day during the third week that Avigayil was wearing her helmet, I was grocery shopping with her in the stroller. Another mother shopping in the store kept peeking around the aisles and staring at my baby. By now I was used to this. Some

people would just stare, some would politely coo “how cute”… and some would actually come up to me and ask me about it. Either way, I didn’t really care. I just kept reminding myself of the outcome. I knew why Avigayil attracted attention: How many helmet wearing babies have you seen? The woman finally came up to me and asked me about the helmet. I was more than happy to explain it to her. A Prescription for Greater Compassion I left the store feeling a much lighter load on my shoulders. Through her nosy questions, the woman unveiled a glimmer of insight into the reason why by divine intervention, my own Avigayil had positional plagiocephaly. I realized that the condition was, in fact, a special gift to me. Because of my personal experiences, I could now share authentic empathy with my patients, and offer them hard won, heartfelt answers to their concerns. After 3 months, Avigayil didn’t have to wear the helmet anymore because her skull was deemed nice and round. Avigayil is older now, and when I show people pictures of when she was a 3-month infant, no one can believe the difference. That simple, plastic helmet worked wonders. Since then, I have fit thousands of babies for their helmets. I can really relate to frantic parents because of my experience with Avigayil. During the initial fitting, I spend more time calming nervous parents than soothing the baby! I feel confident reassuring parents that the helmet works wonderfully, because I know my own Avigayil did so well with it. What I Wish I had Known I offer you the lessons I’ve learned from this experience. As a mother and as an orthotist. Speak to your doctor…ask

questions. Practically every parent I’ve met with a child with a mis-shaped head tells me that they noticed it right away, but didn’t know where to turn. Turn everywhere! Your pediatrician or a pediatric neurologist is a great start. They have answers! Don’t wait. With helmet therapy, time is of the essence. Make sure your practitioner is accessible. When I make a helmet for a baby, I give the parent’s my cell phone number and explain that during that time I consider the helmet babies “my babies”; the parent may reach me at any time during the “therapy” with any concerns. Choose an orthotist with an office that’s convenient. Because a baby’s brain and skull nearly double in size during the first two years of life, the helmet needs to be checked every 10 to 14 days and is often readjusted. You want this to be a pleasant and convenient experience, not a hassle. Helmets are cute: Some parents are very worried about the aesthetic look of the helmet. For this reason, I create helmets with fun, colorful designs such as bows and flowers for girls and trucks and planes for boys – laminated onto the surface. Though it’s scary to see that your baby has a head that doesn’t look quite right, it is something that can be fixed. If your baby’s head is flat or bulged on one side, it needs to be taken care of immediately, the younger the better. Take your baby to the pediatrician and explain your concerns and then get her fitted for a helmet as soon as possible. Remember…. It’s a short therapy for a lifetime result! Rochelle B. Silberman is an orthotist specializing in pediatrics. She’s been designing and fabricating orthopedic and neurological braces for over 30 years. Ms. Silberman has lectured on this topic internationally. For more information, you can contact her at Kidi-Splints (516) 256-9306

TORAH

Give That Back! By Rabbi Mordechai Kamenetzky

T

he Torah tells us that if an individual succumbed and stole property, or deceitfully held an item entrusted to him, there is a mitzvah to make amends. “And he shall return the stolen object that he stole, the fraudulent gains that he defrauded, the pledge that was secured with him” (Leviticus 5:23). The redundancy is glaring. Of course the stolen item is what you stole. Surely the pledge was secured with you. And the fraudulent gains are those that you swindled. Why does the Torah repeat the action words, “that he stole, that he defrauded, that was secured with him?” Rabbi Moshe Sofer, beloved Rabbi of Pressburg and author of the noted work Chasam Sofer, was about to preside as a judge in a difficult lawsuit. A few days before trial was to begin he received a package from one of the litigants. It was a beautiful sterling kiddush cup. That Friday night the Chasam Sofer took the cup out of its velvet pouch, and raised it for his entire family to see. “Look how beautiful this becher is. Do you notice the intricate etchings? It must be worth a fortune!” The family looked on in horror. They knew that the gift was sent as a form of a bribe. They could not imagine why the Chasam Sofer had removed it and was seemingly admiring it. Abruptly, the Chasam Sofer stopped talking. His eyes became sternly focused on the cup. He began, once again, to speak. “But, my children, the Torah tells us we may not take a bribe! Therefore I will put this beautiful cup away and

never use it. It must be returned to the sender immediately! He must be chastised for this terrible breach.” Then he continued. “You must be wondering why I even looked at the cup. You certainly must be bewildered why I even admired it openly. I will explain. How often is it that I am

When I had the opportunity to observe the Torah’s prohibition against corruption, I wanted to make sure that I did it from a vantage of passion. offered a bribe? Never! I never felt the passion or desire to accept a bribe, as it was never offered! When I had the opportunity to observe the Torah’s prohibition against corruption, I wanted to make sure that I did it from a vantage of passion. I wanted

50 Bringing you the Buzz on Savings & Events I To advertise, call 718-513-9885

to realize what I was turning down. I wanted to value the Torah’s command over an exquisite and ornate silver goblet. I felt that by working up our appetite for the item we surely would appreciate its refusal.” Perhaps the Torah is hinting at the most proper aspect of restitution. There are two reasons to return a stolen item. First, you are in possession of an item that is not yours. Simple. But there is another reason. Every one of our actions helps mold us. By returning an item that we once desired enough to have stolen, we train ourselves to break the covetous constitution of our nature. We learn that even though we want something, we may not take it. That redemption is much more effective when the attachment for the item is still active. A stolen item that one may have forgotten about or lost desire for may be much easier to return. After all, ten years after you stole a bicycle you probably would be driving a car. The desire for the bike is no longer there. Maimonides teaches us that the greatest act of teshuva (repentance) is when the passion for the crime still exists. Repentance is always accepted, but if the item is still categorized in your mind with the expression “the stolen item that you stole, the fraudulent gains that you defrauded, the pledge that was secured with you,” then the repentance is more meaningful. When desires conflict with conscience - and conscience prevails -- that is true teshuvah.

STORY

Lincoln’s Jews By Ron Whiter

W

hen Cesar Kaskel first saw the notice, he likely rubbed his eyes. In a daze, he probably ran home to his family. One look at him and his wife would have realized that there was something dreadfully wrong. “Why, what is it? What happened?” she surely asked. And then he told her about the order for every Jew to leave his home within twenty-four hours. “Leave? Why? What have we done?” she may have asked, bewildered. And he may have answered: “Do they ever say why when they throw Jews out of their homes? I just never thought it would happen in America.” Whatever the precise words of their conversation, Kaskel informed his spouse about General Ulysses S. Grant’s General Order 11, signed on December 17, 1862. As Military Governor of the newly conquered Civil War territory, he had issued the order in Holly Springs, Mississippi, mandating the total expulsion of “the Jews, as a class” from an area corresponding with what is today Northern Mississippi, Kentucky and Western Tennessee within “twenty four hours,” without trial or hearing. In Paducah, Kentucky, many families were expelled. They could not believe they were being forced from their homes in so abrupt a manner. A certain Mr. Silverman from Chicago, visiting the town, unfortunately came to share the fate of his local brethren, who on December 17, denied even

rail transportation for their exodus, were forced to travel all the way to

It quickly became apparent that Lincoln knew little or nothing about the Jewish expulsion Memphis by foot. For his efforts to use some contacts to get a desperate telegram through to General Grant,

52 Bringing you the Buzz on Savings & Events I To advertise, call 718-513-9885

Mr. Silverman was promptly thrown into a Holly Springs prison. For his part, Cesar Kaskel tried to contact the President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. He wrote an urgent telegram to the White House, protesting “this inhuman order, the carrying out of which would be the grossest violation of the Constitution and our rights as citizens under it, which will place us...as outlaws before the whole world.” As it happened, his letter was the second to find its way to Lincoln’s desk concerning the Jewish people. A few days earlier, a missive had arrived from one B. Behrend, the father of a religious Jewish soldier in the Union army. Behrend wrote to request Lincoln’s assistance in allowing his son to observe the Jewish Sabbath. He asked Lincoln, “as your namesake Abraham,” for his help in this matter. “This will be exactly lawful, as the Constitution of the United States ordains it, and at the same time be exactly according of the teachings of the Bible, as recorded in Leviticus XIX, 18: “Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.” Kaskel realized, due to the desperation of the situation, that he had to make a trip to Washington. With the help of Congressman Gurley of Ohio, he secured an appointment to see President Lincoln. Together, they were quickly admitted to Lincoln’s office on the second floor of the White House. It quickly became apparent that Lincoln knew little or nothing about

STORY the Jewish expulsion. Kaskel, however, had brought documentation along, and provided a first-person account of Jews being evicted from their homes. After carefully listening, Lincoln asked, “And so the children of Israel were driven from the happy land of Canaan?” Kaskel said, “Yes, and that is why we have come unto Father Abraham’s hands, asking for protection.” Lincoln replied “And this protection they shall have at once.” He then ordered that General Order 11 immediately be revoked. Historians debate whether Ulysses S. Grant was the one responsible for the expulsion, or whether he had merely carried out the wishes of an anti-Semitic higher government official. What is clear, however, is that Lincoln was very sympathetic to the plight of the Jewish Americans affected by the order. Perhaps, in part, because of a letter from a Sabbathobservant soldier’s father. .

STORY

Buying Time By Amy Wilde

E

arly last spring on a cold Sunday afternoon, my 9-year-old daughter came home from school excited. Emma had learned how to make paper footballs, a close relative of paper airplanes. Before she could even take off her coat or hang up her backpack, she grabbed a stack of paper to show me how to make them. The result was a folded triangle that looked vaguely like a football. I was only half paying attention when she asked me if I thought she could sell them. “Sure,” I said, while I kept right on thinking about more important things. Thirty minutes later I looked out my front door. There was Emma setting up shop at the end of our long country driveway. She had a sturdy white table she’d dragged all the way from the shed out back, marketing materials, a box for change, her favorite green camping chair, her big winter coat, and lots and lots of white paper. I wanted to laugh, but I was actually kind of proud of my little entrepreneur. She sat there for two full hours trying to sell her paper footballs. Car after car passed. One lone jogger

promised to buy a football next time he ran by; Emma gave him one for free. My parents were up visiting, and

As the sun started to set, I watched Emma take down her makeshift shop, and I wished she could sell hours instead of paper footballs. they bought a few at 10 cents each. And I may or may not have bribed my son, David, to buy several for his

54 Bringing you the Buzz on Savings & Events I To advertise, call 718-513-9885

friends. Otherwise, nobody stopped. As the sun started to set, I watched Emma take down her makeshift shop, and I wished she could sell hours instead of paper footballs. She’d have miles of customers waiting in line to buy extra time, and everyone would have a story to tell: “I’ve been away from my kids all day at work, so please sell me eight hours. Tonight we’ll play board games, make cookies, watch home movies and stay up way too late.” “My wife and I never talk or laugh much anymore, so five will do me great. It’s been too long since I took her on a real date.” “I’ve been saving all year to buy a new car, but I think what I’ll do instead is buy 300 hours and restore that old ’74 out in the shed.” “I only need three hours, but I’ll put them to good use. My neighbor needs help cutting down a tree, and now I don’t have an excuse.” When her till was chock-full and the customers finally gone, I’d buy two hours for myself. And I’d spend every minute of them making paper footballs with my Emma.

LETS DISCUSS IT

Thank You Hashem…

For Not Making Me a Woman?!

I

n a recent letter to Ohr Samayach, someone asked the following question: Dear Rabbi, If women are equal to men in Judaism, why is this not reflected in the text of the Morning Bracha? Why does the man say “...Who has not made me a woman,” whilst the woman must be content with “... Who has made me according to His will?” In a similar letter, another questioner asked: Dear Rabbi: I am writing a speech for the Sisterhood of my Temple in Valley Stream, New York. I would like the women to appreciate the beauty of the woman’s role in Judaism. The women know that at morning prayers men say a blessing about not being created a woman. They don’t know the reason. Could you please provide me with some thoughts on this issue? The following was their response: First, let’s look at things in context. This bracha appears in the Siddur as part of a group of three blessings: “Blessed are You Hashem, our G-d, King of the universe... (1) Who has not created me as a non-Jew.” (2) Who has not created me as a

slave.” (3) Who has not created me as a woman.” What is the connection between these three categories - non-Jew, slave and woman? The Otzar

The function of these blessings is to acknowledge our responsibilities by identifying the mitzvot which are addressed to us. HaTefillot explains that these categories are in ascending order of Mitzvah responsibility. The first category is that of a non-

60 Bringing you the Buzz on Savings & Events I To advertise, call 718-513-9885

Jew. Non-Jews are obligated in the seven categories of Noachide Laws. The next category is that of a slave. For a Jew to own a slave, the slave had to go through a type of partial conversion including circumcision. The slave then became obligated in most of the Torah commandments. The third category is that of a Jewish woman. She is fully obligated in all the commandments, with the exception of approximately 15. The function of these blessings is to acknowledge our responsibilities by identifying the mitzvot which are addressed to us. When a Jewish woman makes the first two blessings she has sufficiently identified her responsibilities. For a Jewish man to identify his responsibilities, an additional blessing is necessary. Now, the question remains, wouldn’t it be nicer to phrase this blessing in the positive? Why not say “Blessed are you Hashem...Who has made me a Yisrael?” Maybe, but there’s a problem. Let me explain with a parable: Let’s say you’re the forward for the English Lions. It’s the deciding match of the World Cup, and the score is tied with 3 seconds remaining. You have an open shot on the goal. You step on the ball. You fall down. You lose. Afterwards, you step into a London

LETS DISCUSS IT pub. The place is full of irate fans crowded around the TV set while the image of you stepping on the ball is shown over and over again in slow motion. Now, I ask you: Do you announce your arrival? What am I driving at with this parable? We have an important “goal” in this world: The mitzvot. Saying these brachot in the positive would be like the soccer player going into the pub and declaring, “I’m the forward for the Lions.” Saying “I’m a Yisrael” would invite the response, “Oh, but are you keeping all the mitzvot of a Yisrael?” Therefore, we make the point indirectly: “I’m not a non-Jew, I’m not a woman.” Certainly this is not an expression of pride, but rather an acknowledgment of our goals.

MIRACLES

Long Lost Numbers

A

s a child growing up in the Bronx, the last four digits of Terry Noble’s phone number were 7401. Coincidence: When Terry was assigned a social security number, the last four digits were 7401. And years later, when he found himself as a volunteer on a kibbutz in Israel – where he now called himself Tuvia Ariel – he worked with a carpenter whom he respected. The carpenter was a wiry, solid man; the dedicated, silent type. Ariel learned that the carpenter was one of the few who had escaped Auschwitz and survived, that he then joined the Polish partisans, then the British Army. It sent him to Palestine, where he deserted to join the Palmach, the Jewish fighting force, and helped Israel win her independence in 1948. But more than awe piqued Ariel’s curiosity about this survivor’s experiences in the Holocaust. Ariel had read the number tattooed on the carpenter’s arm. Coincidence: The last four digits were 7401. “Don’t talk about it!” Ariel recalls the carpenter telling him forcefully, painfully. “I lost my whole family, my mother, my father; there was a brother in back of me, a brother in front of me – I’m the only one left. Don’t bring it up again!” Ariel didn’t. Except once. Ariel was raised in a non-observant home, in which the Shemoneh Esrei

was not recited. Then he went to Israel to volunteer. In 1967, on the fiftieth anniversary of the Russian Revolution, he saved his life by cutting off his own leg as it got caught in a machine he operated on a kibbutz – a machine that sucked his leg into its

The man barked, “You think I’m just a materialistic American tourist, don’t you? Well, I’ve paid my dues!” grinder and from which the rest of his body escaped only by his quick and gruesome self-amputation. A little over ten years later he became a religiously observant Jew. By then, he was rotating between a wheelchair, crutches and artificial legs, but he could never stand still long enough to pray the Shemoneh Esrei. Then, that Friday, he did it. After

72 Bringing you the Buzz on Savings & Events I To advertise, call 718-513-9885

walking home from shul (only three blocks), he choked up and said, “That’s the longest I’ve walked in 22 years.” Ariel volunteered on two kibbutzim. The one where he lost his leg preferred that he leave the country. As a frum Yid, he was an embarrassment to the kibbutz. But Ariel would not leave Israel, no matter what. It took him about five years of various struggles to get into tourism schools; and somehow, between cars, crutches and artificial limbs, which kept him in pain and then went bad altogether, he remained a tour guide for 15 years. Toward the beginning of his career, when he was the low man on the totem pole, he was assigned to pick up tourists at the international airport in Lod and bring them to the main office, whereupon an experienced guide would take over. One day he picked up an American, ostentatiously wealthy, flamboyantly dressed and mannered. Even crude. Ariel could not bring himself to be friendly, so he was formal. Halfway from Lod to Jerusalem, the tourist, a perceptive man, yelled, “Pull over!” Ariel pulled over. The man barked, “You think I’m just a materialistic American tourist, don’t you? Well, I’ve paid my dues!” He yanked up his sleeve to show Ariel a number tattooed on his arm. Ariel looked, almost went into shock, and before he knew what was happening the tourist was saying,

MIRACLES “I lost my whole family … a brother in front of me, a brother in back of me…” Ariel’s mind burned. The man’s face was florid. Ariel calmed himself, saying simply, “Was your brother’s name Shimon?” The red face turned white. “We’re turning around,” Ariel said. “I’m not taking you to Jerusalem.” Ariel made a U-turn and drove one-and-a-half hours to the kibbutz where he had worked with the wiry carpenter, near Afula. The psychic noise in the car was palpable. Finally Ariel reached the kibbutz and then the carpenter’s shed. He saw his former supervisor for the first time in ten years. Without introduction, he said simply: “Was your brother’s name Reuven?” The carpenter’s face turned white. Ariel returned to the taxi and unloaded it, telling his American tourist, “Come. I am bringing you to your brother.” He led him to the carpenter’s shed, but he did not enter. He did not want to infringe on the privacy of the moment. Then Ariel made a U-turn and drove to the entrance of the kibbutz. He stopped, and wept. Why? When he had seen the numbers tattooed on the tourist’s arm, the last four digits were 7-4-0-2.

HUMOR

A Bit of a

Workout By Moshe Marony

I

live in rural New Hampshire. After three months of convalescing from major surgery - during which exertion was limited to putting on thighhigh white circulation socks - I looked like the Marshmallow Man. I had gained so much weight! My doctor recommended daily walks. On my first morning out, my neighbor Gedalia doubled back, stopped his car beside me and rolled down the window. “Car break down?” “Nope, just walking.” I replied. Gedalia, who walks the equivalent of the Appalachian Trail around his 120-acre farm every day, frowned. “Get in. I’ll give you a ride.” I told him it was doctor’s orders. I needed to regain my strength and stamina. “Get in,” Gedalia repeated. “I’ll give you a ride.” After a stop at the general store for coffee and doughnuts, I returned home from the first day of my new exercise routine having walked the distance of a standard living room, and eaten two glazed doughnuts. So began my workout. On day two, it was the same story, different neighbor. When Gedalia’s cousin Chaim stopped, I politely declined, explaining I had to lose weight. “Yeah, that’s what Gedalia said,”

Chaim said, nodding. “But I wanted to see for myself.” We looked at each other in awkward silence. I climbed in, and we headed to town for coffee and doughnuts. Two weeks into my journey to the new, healthier me, I had walked all of

Two weeks into my journey to the new, healthier me, I had walked all of a single mile and gained seven pounds. a single mile and gained seven pounds. I could barely fit into my socks. As a last-ditch effort to avoid my well-intentioned but sabotaging neighbors, I set the alarm for 4 a.m. Now even if I accepted a ride, it was too early for breakfast.

74 Bringing you the Buzz on Savings & Events I To advertise, call 718-513-9885

With an LED light strapped to my head and a sturdy walking stick in hand, I headed into the gloom. I quickly discovered that, even in my 40s, I am still afraid of the dark. Every snapping twig became a stalking cat; every shadow hid a marauding mountain lion. With my recent fattening, I was no doubt a tempting treat for the hungry beasts that lurked around me. To scare off the packs of wild dogs that were certainly circling me, I would randomly swing the walking stick over my head and growl loudly. For good measure, I threw in some flailing karate kicks. Unfortunately, I scared only Leah, Chaim’s wife, who happened to be on her front porch witnessing my wild spectacle. By the time Irv, our local police officer, picked me up in his cruiser, I had lost my headlamp and walking stick, as well as my way in the dark. He brought me to the station, poured me a cup of coffee and offered me a doughnut. I ate two. On the way home, he stopped at his garage and pulled a barely used treadmill out from under a pile of winter coats, offering it to me in return for a promise never to go walking before daybreak again—at least not while wielding a walking stick, growling, kicking, and wearing a headlamp and thigh-high socks.
