The Month of Elul -
An Opportunity Not To Be Missed BY: RABBI YEHUDAH PRERO
he month of Elul is upon us. This month is dedicated to preparing ourselves for the upcoming holy days of Rosh HaShana and Yom Kippur, which occur on the ﬁrst, second and tenth days of the next month, Tishrei. During Elul, we should analyze all that we have done during the past year: Are we nicer people? Are we properly committed to the service of G-d and that which the Torah requires? Have we improved at all? If we have improved, then we know we are on the right track. During Elul, we should work on ways we can further improve ourselves. If we have not improved, then we have our work cut out for us. Elul is a time to plot our course, our game plan, for the upcoming year. It is a time for repentance and introspection. It is a time that we cannot let slip away. Our life depends on it. There was a farmer who every winter went to an agricultural convention. At the convention, he explored new methods for improving his crop output. He tried to discover new methods for efﬁcient irrigation, hew hybrids that produced better produce, and new farm machinery. He expended all this effort so that he could be assured that the coming year’s harvest would be successful, if not better than the last year’s. One year, while attending the convention, the farmer became ill and needed to be hospitalized. While in the hospital, the doctors discovered that he suffered from a very serious ailment that would require long term care. He was moved to a hospital near his home, and his lengthy treatment began. Months went by, and the farmer’s health dramatically improved. He was ﬁnally discharged from the hospital and returned home. What he found at home caused him great
anguish. He surveyed the entire acreage of his farm. Here he was, halfway into the growing season, and much of the land remained bare. Apparently, his instructions on when and where to plant had not been followed. Any dreams of a successful harvest were dashed. The farmer knew that he could do nothing by that point in time. Starting to plant now would not help. It was too late for that. All of the new techniques he had learned about and all of the machinery he bought could not help. All of the preparations he had made for this season were for naught. Elul is the “planting season.” We may “prepare” ourselves during the year for this season by furthering our devotion to G-d and the Torah. However, if come Elul and the High Holy days, we do not “plant our seeds” - we do not make a ﬁrm commitment to improve and in fact act on it - we have missed our opportunity to assure ourselves of a successful year. We may try to plead that we were victims of circumstance: ‘I was busy with family problems...I needed to focus all my energies on making a living...I did not have the strength, and therefore I did not have the time to increase and improve my commitment to G-d.’ However, just as excuses cannot convince seeds to sprout in the wrong season, so too excuses cannot help us after we have missed the time to prepare ourselves for our impending judgment. We should take advantage of this season so that we will all be the recipients of a bountiful harvest this year. (Based on the thoughts of HaRav Yechezkel Levenstein zt”l)
Elul is the “planting season.”

RABBI BERYL BROYDE
BLOOMBERRY FROZEN YOGURT STORE in Royal Oak is not Kosher certified. The OU symbol that was displayed there and on its nutrition sheets was unauthorized and has been removed. SOPHIA PITA BREAD is Kosher only when bearing the K-COR symbol. Some Sophia pita bread not bearing the K-COR is made by a nonKosher plant. PITA CHIPS from AMERICAN BAKERY PRODUCTS INC. are not Kosher certified. American Bakery Products’ Pita breads and Lawash breads are certified, when bearing the K-COR symbol. BROWN’S BUNS, certified by the COR, are not Pas Yisroel. SLURPEE FLAVOR CARDS on slurpee machines at 7-Eleven stores recently began bearing an OU symbol on some varieties. Please be advised that while the OU certifies many Coca-Cola and Fanta brand varieties of frozen beverage syrups, this certification applies only to the original box of syrup manufactured by Coca-Cola. The OU does not provide store level supervision to guarantee that a store is using certified syrup for the slurpee products that bear these flavor cards. Locally, the COR provides supervision for slurpees at four 7-Eleven stores, but only for certain machines in each store, as specified on the COR certificate posted there. (Lincoln & Greenfield: only right and center machines. 11 & Coolidge, 13 & Greenfield, and 11 & Lahser: only left machine.) At non-supervised stores, the COR recommends that the consumer verify, with the manager’s permission, that the box of syrup in the back which feeds the slurpee machine is a Kosher brand and variety, and also whether a non-Kosher or dairy flavor was used very recently in this same spigot, in which case there may still be a mixture in the barrel. (Stores generally do not clean the machine between flavors.) For your convenience, a Kosher slurpee list from the Chicago Rabbinical Council is attached.
RIVER RANCH FRESH VEGETABLE SALADS have changed plants and currently are not Star-K certified, and do not bear the Star-K symbol. NATURE VALLEY TRAIL MIX DARK CHOCOLATE & NUT CHEWY GRANOLA BARS are not certified by the OU. Some packages mistakenly have an OU on them. TROPICAL DELIGHT EXOTICS STRAWBERRY BANANA BEVERAGE from Canada contains non-Kosher grape juice and was labeled with an unauthorized COR 13. This product is not Kosher certified. HEALTHY PAC FROZEN BROCCOLI FLORETS bears an unauthorized OK symbol. This product is not certified by the OK. STOP & SHOP ROCKY ROAD REAL PREMIUM ICE CREAM is not certified by the OU. Some containers mistakenly display an OU D symbol. VIVA ITALIA TOMATO SAUCES are not OU certified. The OU symbol that appears on any Viva Italia tomato sauce product (Marinara, Vodka, Puttanesca or others) is unauthorized. CREMOSA BRAND RICOTTA CHEESE bears an unauthorized OK symbol. The product is not certified by the OK. SUPERIOR BAKING BROWNIE BITES are processed on dairy equipment and may contain dairy residuals. This product is certified as an OU D - Dairy product. A limited quantity of labels were printed with a plain OU without the D. These mislabeled products were primarily sold at Costco in the Northeast. eFOODS GOLD GRANOLA from Food For Health International contains dairy ingredients and is certified Kosher dairy by the OU. Some packaging is mistakenly labeled with a plain OU, without the ‘D’ dairy designation. (This product is not sold in stores, and is available only by contacting the company.)

Jewish Humor Entry to Heaven Fay’s son Harry is always getting into mischief, and she is getting quite exasperated by his antics. One day, Fay says to him, “Harry, how do you expect to get into Heaven when you’re always so naughty?” Harry thinks about this question for a little while, then replies, “Well, mom, I’ll run in and out and in and out and I’ll keep on slamming the gates of heaven until the angel at the gates says, ‘For heaven’s sake, Harry, come in or stay out.’”

The NonOlympic Flame BY RABBI AVI SHAFRAN
ll the pomp and glitter that the Olympics have this summer, all the celebrated athletes and venerated ideals, obscured the true dark heart of the Games. For although the modern Olympics are presented as a paragon of good-natured competition and a vehicle for global unity, their roots, stretching back to the ancient Greek Olympics, are gnarled and ugly. In their original incarnation, the Games were ﬁercely xenophobic; only Greek-speakers needed apply. And their competitions could be beastly and bloody; the original Olympians were singlemindedly focused on victory, even at the cost of limb or life. That should not surprise anyone familiar with ancient Greek culture; in Hellas, death was an acceptable, even noble, outcome of competitive displays of physical prowess. The ancient Greeks did not subscribe to our contemporary notions of moral good or bad; those were bequeathals to the world from the Jews, whose beliefs puzzled the Greeks, and whose own rejection of Hellenism, as it happens, is at the core of what the Jewish holiday Chanukah commemorates. What is surprising, and depressing, is that the modern Games, for all their life-afﬁrming pageantry and paeans about the “spirit of friendship,” possess a moral shabbiness all their own. True, they may no longer feature events like the pankration, a form of extreme ﬁghting that regularly saw competitors maimed or killed. And the primitive desire to utterly crush one’s opponent that animated ancient Greek competitors is at least somewhat sublimated these days. But the egotism and amorality are still apparent; as is the antipathy for Jews. Some still alive remember the summer Games of 1936 in Berlin, which Adolph Hitler exploited to help promote the Third Reich’s image. Many more recall the murder of 11 Israelis
The modern Games, for all their life-afﬁrming pageantry and paeans about the “spirit of friendship,” possess a moral shabbiness all their own. by Arab terrorists at the 1972 Munich Olympics - and how International Olympic Committee president Avery Brundage boldly declared, after a one-day suspension of the competition, that “the Games must go on!” In 2004, there was a memorial service for those 11 slaughtered Israelis, at the Israeli ambassador’s residence in Athens. Addressing the small gathering, the widow of one of the murdered athletes asked why, considering that the “whole Olympic family” had been attacked by the terrorists in 1972, the participants were gathered in a private home and not at an IOCsponsored memorial in the presence of all the Olympians. continued on page 48 COMMUNITY LINKS
continued from page 46 The answer was not supplied, but it is likely not unrelated to the fact that when Olympic federation representatives gathered in Kuala Lumpur two years earlier to prepare for the Athens Games, 199 ﬂags were ﬂown, including the one adopted by the Palestinians, but Israel’s was not among them. Relevant, too, was the unpleasantness of Arash Miresmaeili, the Iranian judo wrestler who had been scheduled this year to compete with an Israeli but who, it seems, stuffed himself with food during the days before the bout so he would be disqualiﬁed for his weight class. Quoted in an Iranian newspaper as having “refused” to compete with an Israeli, he was awarded $115,000 by Iran for “sacriﬁcing” a gold medal. The IOC, for its part, pretended that the entire episode was just the unfortunate saga of an athlete who neglected to count his calories. There is no dearth of Israel-hatred these days in the world, nor of what most of it really is: Jew-hatred. But the particular Jew-focused animus that has accompanied the Olympics in modern times might serve as well as a reminder of something more fundamental: how diametric the essence of the Games is to the Jewish faith. The Greeks’ highest ideal was physical accomplishment; the Jews’, moral. In contrast to the Olympic motto of “citius, altius, fortius” “swifter, higher, stronger” - the Jewish credo was a simple, hopeful “holier.” The Hellenist worldview placed the human being on the highest pedestal. Nature was perfect and the human body and mind were its highest expressions. What “gods” were paid homage in Hellas were but actors in a sort of celestial soapopera. The idea of an ultimate Creator, and that He expects self-control from His free-willed creations, was seen by the Greeks as just so much Jewish pollution. In the second century before the Common Era, the Seleucid Empire sought to impose Greek belief on its subjects, including the Jews in Judea, who were ordered to abandon practices that seemed particularly antagonistic to Greek belief. According to Jewish historical accounts, circumcision, with its none-too-subtle message of man’s imperfection, and the Sabbath, whose rest from work ﬂew in the face of nature’s ceaseless toil, were speciﬁc targets; as was the Jewish ideal of modesty, which the Greeks saw as the expression of unnatural shame over the human body. 48
In contrast to the Olympic motto of “citius, altius, fortius” - “swifter, higher, stronger” - the Jewish credo was a simple, hopeful “holier.”
Some Jews willingly accepted the new culture, and eventually became absorbed into it. Others, though, through whom Judaism persevered, resisted and eventually rebelled, establishing their independence from the Seleucids. Chanukah celebrates their refusal to abandon the Jewish ancestral faith. In Jewish tradition, the Greek era is called a time of “darkness,” a reference to its unenlightened worldview. The candles lit on Chanukah are meant to symbolize how, in the words of the Talmudic rabbis, “a small bit of light can push away a large amount of darkness.” And indeed, over the millennia that ensued after the ﬁrst Chanukah, the Jewish vision of right, wrong and human responsibility has persevered over the once-ubiquitous Greek culture, which, at least in its original form, today resides only in museums and college courses. The darkness that has yet to be banished, though, is the hatred for Jews that accompanied contempt for Jewish ideals. May that animus too, despite its current popularity, soon go the way of the pankration and Greek gods, forever exorcized by the small but powerful lights of Chanukah menorahs everywhere.
