PARENTING CLASS II (For Men & Women) RABBI DANIEL FRANK, DIRECTOR, M.A.P. SEMINARS, INC.

Topic:

ADOLESCENCE: “Rapid Alert” TODAY’S ADOLESCENTS FACE YEARS OF RELENTLESS CHALLENGES. The combination of peer pressure, materialism, and out-of-control exposure throws our youth into an almost impossible battle to keep focused on the values that are most important to us – and hopefully them. This seminar teaches parents how to convey to these vulnerable and unsuspecting adolescents how to navigate through the turbulent teen years – not only to survive, but to develop inner strength, resilience, and character to make good choices and withstand the challenges they face.

Rabbi Frank currently directs M.A.P. (Motivation and Performance) Seminars, Inc., maintains a private practice in marriage and family therapy. In the past, he had served as rabbi of the Young Israel of Westport, Ct. and director of the Torah Learning Center in nearby Stamford. More recently, Rabbi Frank supervised Ohel’s School Based Services Program in Rockland County as well as Ohel’s Mental Health Clinic in Northern New Jersey. As an international lecturer, educator, and licensed therapist, Rabbi Frank gives presentations on education, parenting, and personal growth. His approach includes a blend of theory and strategy that empower audiences with the knowledge and skills necessary to effect meaningful changes in their lives.

Rabbi Doniel Neustadt Halachah Hotline 248-559-5005 x100 Kashruth Product Helpline 248-559-5005 x103 cordetroit@gmail.com www.cordetroit.com

CONTEMPORARY KITCHEN ISSUES by Rabbi Doniel Neustadt May a housewife have a non-Jewish cleaning lady clean her kitchen if no frum person is at home? It is never a good idea to allow a person who does not keep kosher—Jewish or not—to have free access to your kitchen. It is quite common for a cleaning lady to bring her own non-kosher food into your kitchen and use your oven or microwave to warm it up, or use your kosher utensils to stir or serve her non-kosher food. Even if the cleaning lady does not bring her own food into your home, there remains the likelihood that she will prepare something for herself in your kitchen in a manner which will render your oven, pots, pans or dishes non-kosher. Mixing meat and milk together, transgressing the laws of bishul akum or gaining access to unsealed meat and fish are just some of the things that could go wrong when a kitchen is accessed by an individual who is not knowledgeable or reliable concerning kashrus. Whenever possible, such a person should not be left in your kitchen unsupervised. In the event that this truly cannot be avoided, there are a number of safeguards that can be instituted to lessen the likelihood of making your kitchen non-kosher. First and foremost, the cleaning lady must be told in no uncertain terms that she may not bring any of her own food into the house, nor may she cook, bake or warm any food in the kitchen—not for herself or for anyone else. The slightest infraction of this rule will result in her immediate dismissal. Secondly, all unsealed food which cannot be clearly identified as kosher, e.g., meat, chicken, skinned fish, cheese or wine, should either be resealed or stored under lock and key. Thirdly, the microwave oven should be sealed with a tamper proof seal. In addition, one of the following two procedures must be implemented: 1. A neighbor or a relative must drop in at random times throughout the day to check up on the cleaning lady. The cleaning lady should be told in advance that someone will be checking up on her. 2. A video camera must be installed to monitor the kitchen area. The cleaning lady should be told that a camera is operating at all times. The tape should be periodically reviewed to verify that no cooking, baking or warming has taken place anywhere in the kitchen and that no outside food has been brought in. In the event that the above precautions were not followed and a cleaning lady was left alone in the kitchen without any supervision, a Rav should be consulted to decide the status of the kitchen appliances, pots and pans, and dishes. Depending on the exact circumstances, the Rav may decide that nothing at all needs to be done and everything in the kitchen remains kosher, or he may decide that the ovens must be koshered, and that the pots and dishes—or at least some of them—may not be used for 24 hours. A related question arises when a wife needs to step out for a few hours, but does not wish to leave her kitchen un28

supervised while the cleaning lady is working there. May she ask her husband to remain at home to supervise the cleaning lady? Depending on the circumstances, that may entail a gross violation of the laws of yichud or other restrictions pertaining to modesty and purity. Cases such as these, ostensibly commonplace and innocuous, do, in fact, have to be carefully weighed and balanced and, if necessary, presented to a Rav for a ruling. If a microwave was mistakenly used for both meat and dairy dishes, what could be done? It is forbidden to use the same microwave to warm or cook both dairy and meat if both the dairy and meat dishes are uncovered. It is strongly recommended not to use the same microwave for meat and dairy even if one is careful to keep all of the food covered while being cooked or warmed. One should make every effort to get two separate microwave ovens and designate one for meat and the other for dairy. In the event that uncovered dairy food was heated in a meat microwave or vice-versa, the microwave is considered not-kosher, especially if there was a substantial amount of liquid in the food being warmed. Whether or not the microwave can be koshered is a subject of debate among contemporary poskim: Some hold that it can be koshered using a modified hagalah procedure, which entails scrubbing the roof, walls and turntable of the microwave clean, waiting twenty-four hours, placing a cup of water inside the microwave and heating it for 5-10 minutes until thick steam fills the oven. If the food being warmed touched the turntable directly (without a plate or napkin in between) then the turntable should be koshered through hagalah in hot water. Other poskim, however, are wary of koshering a microwave using this procedure. The practical halachah will depend on the specific details of the case which should be presented to a Rav for a ruling. If an item is labeled DE, may it be eaten in a fleischig meal? An item which is labeled DE means that pareve food was processed on hot equipment that was previously used for dairy and no koshering took place between the dairy run and the pareve run. [Sometimes, DE means that the pareve product was processed on dairy equipment which was not totally clean of dairy residue.] There is no way for the consumer to tell whether or not the dairy equipment was ben yomo at the time the pareve food was processed or not. Therefore, we are careful not to eat any DE products together with meat or chicken, since it is forbidden l’chatchilah to eat meat or chicken together with pareve foods that were processed in hot ben yomo dairy equipment. It is, however, permitted to eat DE products after eating meat or chicken, even during the same meal, and even without cleaning one’s mouth in between. continued on page 34 COMMUNITY LINKS

continued from page 28

If onions cut with a clean meaty knife are ground in a food processor, does the food processor become meaty? The answer to this question is a matter of dispute. Some poskim hold that the “absorbed meaty taste” that was transferred into the onion from the meaty knife is further transferred into the blades of the food processor, thus rendering the blades of the food processor meaty. Other poskim disagree and maintain that the taste cannot be transferred further and the food processor remains pareve. Although l’chatchilah one should avoid this problem by taking care to cut onions with a pareve knife or by designating a food processor for meaty items only, when necessary, one may rely on the lenient poskim who rule that the processor does not lose its pareve status. Which stringency is more important to observe—the stringency of eating only chalav Yisrael products, or the stringency of eating only pas Yisrael products? Eating only chalav yisrael products and avoiding chalav stam is more important. Pas palter, as opposed to pas Yisrael which is baked by a Jew, refers to bread and other baked goods that are kosher but were baked in a non-Jewish bakery. Pas palter is permitted to be eaten according to the Shulchan Aruch and most major poskim. While it is certainly meritorius to partake of pas Yisrael only, it is only a chumrah, above and beyond the strict letter of the law. The permissibility of drinking chalav stam, on the other hand, which is milk that was milked by non-Jews without Jewish supervision but under government regulation, is a subject hotly debated among the poskim. While there are prominent poskim who allow drinking chalav stam in the United States and one is permitted to rely on their ruling, the vast majority of the poskim do not agree with this leniency. According to the majority opinion, therefore, chalav stam is not merely a chumrah but is strictly forbidden. What’s a more important stringency – to avoid chadash or chalav stam? Avoiding chalav stam is more important, even though chadash is a biblical prohibition while chalav akum is not. Whether or not chadash is forbidden nowadays, when the fields are owned by non-Jews and we are not dwelling in Eretz Yisrael, is a long-standing dispute among the early authorities, with no clear consensus reached. On the contrary, most European Jews did not consider chadash to be a problem, as it became customary to follow the more lenient opinions concerning Chadash nowadays. Those who are lenient in chadash, therefore, are following a well-established tradition, based on the opinion of early, classic poskim. The leniency to drink chalav stam, on the other hand, is different. There is no long-standing tradition to permit it, as chalav stam was not available in Europe. It was always assumed and accepted by all poskim that unless a Jew was present at the milking, the milk is forbidden to drink. It was only recently, in the United States, where some prominent poskim ruled that we may rely on government regulation to permit milk that was not supervised by a Jew. This controversial ruling does not have the same halachic power as a ruling based on a centuries-old tradition, and thus it is a more important stringency to keep. Should a seven-year-old child be made to wait six hours between meat and dairy? He or she should not be made to wait six hours but the child should be taught that this is the correct thing to do. The parents must judge whether or not the child is ready— 34

physically and emotionally—to understand and undertake this halachah. The education process should be gradual and steady, conforming to the development and temperament of the child. Once he or she is nine or ten years old, then the child should be ready to accept and understand that this is what the halachah demands of him. What procedure should be followed when baking an uncovered pareve liquid cake batter or dough in a meaty or dairy oven? The oven should be thoroughly cleaned from any meat particles and residue, preferably with a potent cleanser. The oven should then be heated to its highest setting for an hour and the racks should be lined with a fresh piece of foil. The oven is now ready to be used and anything baked in it will be considered pareve. While some people are more stringent and wait 24 hours before using the oven for pareve, this is not required. An open bottle of non-mevushal wine was left on the fridge door, and a non-Jew opened the door and cleaned the fridge. Is the wine permitted? When leaving a non-Jew alone in a house, all non-mevushal wine should be sealed. If the bottle is unsealed, it should be put away under lock and key. B’diavad, however, we do not prohibit drinking the wine from the unsealed bottle unless we have reason to believe that the cleaning woman either drank from the bottle directly, poured herself a drink from the bottle into a glass, touched the wine itself (not merely the bottle), or picked up the bottle, uncorked it and shook the wine. If we have no reason to believe that any of the above occurred, we do not prohibit the wine. If a sealed or unsealed bottle of wine was left in the refrigerator door, and the non-Jewish cleaning woman opened the door of the refrigerator but did not remove the bottle of wine from its place, the wine may be drunk. All of the above halachos apply to non-mevushal grape juice as well. Note: Contemporary poskim are divided as to whether or not the mevushal wines and grape juices on the market today are exempt from the halachos of stam yeinam or not. In the United States it is customary to rely on the more lenient views. Is Challah taken from dough made out of six pounds of flour that will be used half for challah and half for cinnamon buns? Is the brachah recited? Challah should be taken but the blessing over the mitzvah should be omitted. Although the original dough contained six pounds of flour which is sufficient to require hafrashas challah with a blessing, in this case it is questionable whether or not the divided dough—which will be used for two different types of baked goods and will not be combined—is considered as one dough or as two separate pieces of dough, each one containing only 3 pounds of flour. Since the halachah remains unresolved, we fulfill the mitzvah but we do not recite the blessing. Is a kosher pizza store required to double tape pizza being delivered by a non-Jew? It is strongly recommended that they do so, and the kashrus agency supervising that establishment should insist on this procedure taking place. B’diavad, if unsealed pizza was delivered by a non-Jew (or a Jew who does not keep kosher), there are several circumstances which will permit the pizza to be eaten. A Rav should be consulted.

New Shoes for

Pesach

From ”Kaddish for my Mother” by Ruchie Weisberg

S

pring came to my mother’s little village. Flowers were in bloom, the grass smelled sweet and fresh. Fruits were ripe for the picking. There was much activity during Chag HaAviv; the house had to be meticulously cleaned for Pesach; the wood stove cleaned of all chometz; the kneading board had to be replaced with a freshly cut piece of wood. My mother remembered all this with much fondness as she told us about life on the farm in the spring before Pesach finally arrived. But truth be told, she said, this was not the only reason for her excitement and anticipation. No, for my mother it meant, new shoes! Her mother would travel to Prague and buy her family new spring clothes and shoes for the holiday. This year was my mother’s turn. Her year to get new shoes. She fantasized about how they would look, what color, what style. She hoped not the same utilitarian, ugly brown oxfords that she had worn through until the soles of the shoes were almost transparent. Their wear couldn’t be helped, of course, when she had to trudge through mud and dirt to feed the chickens, but at least for a while they would be new and she would try her hardest to keep them in mint condition. The awaited day finally came. Her mother travelled to Prague the day before and was scheduled to return that afternoon. My mother tried to keep busy with all her chores, but every once in a while she would run to the door awaiting her mother’s return. And return she did with a new pair of suspenders for Simcha, a new yarmulke for her brother Pesach. Avrohom received the desperately needed new pants and for the older girls: a blouse for Sarah, some new stockings for Baila. My mother waited patiently until her mother’s gaze fell upon her beloved Chana, her dutiful daughter. Chanala, she said “I ran out of money and the shoes were so expensive, I just could not buy them. You’ll see we’ll polish yours up really nicely and I will crochet a new collar for your blouse. You will look like a princess, and next year, I promise, you will be the first on the list”. As my mother told this story it was clear that her pride far exceeded her disappointment. “Mama, she said, “next year Moshiach will be here and we shall all have as many shoes as we could possibly dream of.” Last year, a few weeks before Pesach, I decided to do something that would be a z’chus for my mother’s neshoma. I contacted Rabbi Shaul Broner and asked him if he, as a representative of Matan B’seter, would distribute funds that I collected from family and friends to large families, so that their children would have new shoes for Pesach. I called this project the “ Y’SHOE-AH Foundation” in memory of Chana Bas Yosef. This year I’m starting much earlier. Anyone interested in being part of this project can call Shaul Broner at (248) 968-5646 and designate the funds that they wish to donate to go to large families for the purchase of new shoes for their children for Pesach.

The Megilos BY RABBI BORUCH CLINTON

Esther

T

he book of Esther contains the story of the Jewish holiday of Purim, and that is when there is a Mitzva (commandment) to read the scroll in public. The setting for the story was the Persian empire. It was the last few years of the 70 years between the destruction of the first Temple (422 BCE/ 3338) and the building of the second. Achashverosh (Xerxes) was the man at the top of the young empire. His rule stretched from India in the east to the western Mediterranean. Virtually the whole known world stood under his domination - including nearly every Jew alive at the time. There’s a great danger in having all the eggs in one basket (in other words having all the Jews under the rule of one man). What would happen if someone dropped the basket? Well that’s exactly what nearly happened. Haman held the position of Prime Minister, second in power only to the King himself. To say that Haman was not a great friend of the Jews would be an understatement. In one way or another, Haman received permission from the king to kill every Jew in the empire on one day (the 13th of the month of Adar). Nearly one year before the date of execution, Haman sent secret orders to the governors of each of the empire’s many provinces - orders that were not to be opened until the appointed day. Being a very suspicious man, Haman kept the whole affair as quiet as possible, not wanting to give the Jews an opportunity to upset his plans... However, three things occurred at or before the birth of Haman’s plan that would have a great effect on the outcome: The king, in a drunken rage, killed his (main) wife, Vashti, and replaced her by way of a high-stakes beauty pageant. The new Queen was a Jewess named Esther (although no one at the time knew she was Jewish). Mordechai (a member of the Sanhedrin and Esther’s uncle) happened to find out about Haman’s plan and began to act against it. Mordechai also happened to overhear details of a plot to kill the King - and warned the King, saving his life. It was these three things that spelled the end of Haman’s plan. Esther’s relationship with the King, Haman’s uncontrollable hatred for Mordechai (the king’s savior) and the cooperation of Esther and her uncle all brought about the downfall of Haman and the salvation of the Jews.

50

That’s the story. But the story itself is not the essence of the book of Esther. There are many wonderful events in our history that bear repeating, but they weren’t necessarily included in Tanach (the Bible). In the eyes of our rabbis, there’s something more to the story of Purim Every single event of the book can have a purely rational explanation. It is possible, in the natural course of things, that Esther, the Jewess, was chosen from all the thousands of women to be the King’s wife; it is possible that Mordechai could have accidentally heard of Haman’s plan to kill the Jews, and of the plot to kill Achashverosh; it is possible that Haman could have just happened to have such a strong hatred for Mordechai... and then just happened to have arrived in the King’s bedroom as the King was thinking about honoring that same Mordechai. All of these things are believable in a natural context. But how likely is it that they should ALL happen, and at just the right time? The book of Esther, therefore, is the story of the quiet, invisible hand of G-d in history. The book is an expression of our belief in G-d’s directing control in all human activities. Add up all the coincidences in this book (or in your own lives!) and you’ll sometimes see how it just doesn’t add up. So that’s the story. But there’s one more thing. Why did G-d have to allow the Jews to get into such hot water... only to bail them out with such an impressive succession of quiet miracles? Wouldn’t it have been better to kill baby Haman in his crib or something like that? The answer, our rabbis tell us, is that the Jews of that generation needed this trouble to inspire them to see the hand of G-d, and to return to a greater level of Mitzva-observance. Thus, Mordechai’s response to the crisis makes sense. Did he organize mass rallies outside the Persian embassy? How about a petition? Letterbomb campaign? Nope. He “tore his clothes and put on sackcloth and ashes (signs of mourning)... and he cried a great and bitter cry” (Esther 4 1). He arranged that in every province to which news reached, there was “great mourning among the Jews and fasting and crying....” Why does someone fast if not to impress Someone Above (G-d). What’s the best way to impress Him? Teshuva - repentance and honest change. Now that you have the whole story of Purim, everything else is just detail.

The Lesson of Hot Chocolate

A

group of graduates, well established in their careers, were talking at a reunion and decided to go visit their old university professor, now retired. During their visit, the conversation turned to complaints about stress in their work and lives. Offering his guests hot chocolate, the professor went into the kitchen and returned with a large pot of hot chocolate and an assortment of cups porcelain, glass, crystal, some plain looking, some expensive, some exquisite - telling them to help themselves to the hot chocolate. When they all had a cup of hot chocolate in hand, the professor said: “Notice that all the nice looking, expensive cups were taken, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress. The cup that you’re drinking from adds nothing to the quality of the hot chocolate. In most cases it is just more expensive

and in some cases even hides what we drink. What all of you really wanted was hot chocolate, not the cup; but you consciously went for the best cups... And then you began eying each others cups. Now consider this: Life is the hot chocolate; your job, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain life. The cup you have does not define, nor change the quality of life you have. Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the hot chocolate God has provided us. God makes the hot chocolate, man chooses the cups. The happiest people don’t have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything that they have. Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. And enjoy your hot chocolate.

“The happiest people don’t have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything that they have.”

Ark of Inclusion I BY RABBI MORDECHAI KAMENETZKY

n the portion of Terumah the Jewish nation was tasked to build the Mishkan. Each one of the utensils is specified as to how it should be constructed, its width, its length, and its height. The type of material whether it was gold, silver, or copper, is enumerated and the details of its ornaments are provided. The procedure for the construction of each vessel is preceded by a command stated in the singular form: “And you shall make” “And you shall make a show bread table.” “And you shall make a Menorah.” “And you shall make an Altar.” The command is directed toward Moshe to delegate the construction. The Aron Kodesh, the Holy Ark is different. Its command is not stated in the singular form, rather in the plural. The Torah does not say and you shall make a Holy Ark, it states, “And they shall make a Holy Ark.” The commentaries ask, why was the command to build the Ark the only one that was given to a group?

the old Jew a little bit about himself. “Tell me,” he inquired, “I watch you as I say my shiur. Sometimes you look intrigued but at other times you seem totally disinterested. The trouble is I would like to make the shiur more interesting for you during its entirety, but I can’t seem to make out what perks you up and makes you doze?” The old man smiled. “I never had a Jewish education. I can barely read Hebrew. I do not come to the shiur for the same reasons that the other men come.” He paused as his eyes pondered his past. “You see, I was a soldier in the Red Army during World War II. Every day our commander would herd us into a room and put a gun to our heads. He commanded us to recite the names of every member of the Politburo. And we did. We learned those names backwards and forward. I come to this class to hear the names of every rabbi in the Talmud. If I cannot learn at least I will know the names of all the great sages! “That.” he smiled “is my Daf HaYomi!”

The Torah is given for everyone to learn and to experience - each one according to his or her own level and ability.

In a small shul in Yerushalayim, a daily Daf HaYomi shiur (Talmudic folio class) was held each morning before Shacharis. An elderly Russian immigrant attended the shiur. Quiet as he was, his behavior in the shiur intrigued the lecturer. He would never ask a thing. Often he would nod off. Sometimes, when the Rabbi quoted a particular Talmudic sage, the old man’s face would light up - especially when the Rabbi mentioned an opinion from a obscure Talmudic personality. This behavior continued throughout the summer. Always quiet, the man would sometimes nod off, and at other times he would perk up. Then winter came. The group of men would gather around the table in the frigid mornings huddled close as they would warm to the strains of the Talmud and the straining heater in the old synagogue. The old man never missed a class. One morning a rare snow blanketed Jerusalem. No one showed up to the shiur except the Rabbi and the elderly Russian Jew. Instead of giving his usual lecture, the Rabbi decided he would ask 66

Although the show bread table, the Menorah, and the Altar can be constructed by individuals -- the Ark that holds the Torah is different. One man cannot make it alone. It must be a communal effort. Just as the Torah cannot be learned by one man alone, its Ark cannot be built by an individual either. The Torah is given for everyone to learn and to experience - each one according to his or her own level and ability. Lighting a Menorah is a clear-cut ritual delegated to the Kohain. The Altar is used for the sacrifices brought by the kohanim. The Torah is for everybody. And each individual has his own Shas and Daf HaYomi. Each person has his share in Toras Yisrael. Everyone extracts something holy from the Torah. To some it may be extrapolative halachic theory, while for others it may be the refinement of character. And still for others it may be the names of Abayai and Rava.
