The Great Equalizer BY RABBI YAAKOV MENKEN

“You shall dwell in Sukkos for seven days; every member of Israel shall dwell in Sukkos. In order that you know, for all generations, that I placed the Children of Israel to dwell in Sukkos, when I took them out of the Land of Egypt; I am HaShem your G-d.” [23:32-33] In what “Sukkos,” or booths, did G-d place the Children of Israel? Rashi (Rabbi Shlomo Yitzchaki) quotes from the Talmud: this refers to the Clouds of Glory, which surrounded and protected the Jewish nation during their forty years in the desert. The holiday of Sukkos reminds us that we are not self-reliant. This is the time of year when people pack up and move inside, and (in agricultural communities) celebrate their good harvest -- like Thanksgiving in the United States. At exactly this time, G-d tells us that we must move out of our homes, and live underneath an all-natural, unfinished roof that doesn’t even fully block the sun. Sukkos is a great equalizer -- whether rich or poor, we are all living under

r

qq

the same incomplete roof of “schach.” Instead of celebrating our good fortune, or worrying about a bad crop, we celebrate our unique relationship with HaShem and the protection which He gives us. Like the Jews in the desert, surrounded by the Clouds of Glory, we declare that it is not our houses, our own resources, which sustain us. While we were sitting in his Sukkah, Rabbi Moshe Silberberg pointed out the following: when the sun is shining, and everything is bright, then we look up -- and it doesn’t seem as if there is too much schach. It is there, but we do not recognize it so much. But at night, when things are dark -- that’s when you look up, and you really see the schach. In the best of times, and even more so in the worst, may we always merit to recognize G-d’s protection! Reprinted with permission from www.torah.org

The Cycle of Six followed by Seven BY RABBI YISROEL CINER We are presently in the midst of the month of Tishray, the seventh month. We find that six mundane units are followed by a holy seventh. The six days of the week are followed by Shabbos. Each six-year cycle is followed by the Shmittah year (no work is performed on the fields). And the first six months are followed by Tishray, the month that is illuminated by so many holidays. In order to understand the connection and transition from Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, to Succos, the holiday of the Clouds of Glory, we must have an historical perspective. On the fifteenth day of Nissan, Bnei Yisroel {the Children of Israel} had their exodus from the oppressive slavery of Mitzrayim {Egypt}. The travel through the wilderness was accompanied by the ‘Annanei Hakavodthe Clouds of Glory’ that led the way while also casting their protective shield over the nation. Forty-nine days later, on the sixth day of Sivan, Bnei Yisroel stood by the foot of Har {Mount} Sinai as the heavens opened up and all heard the word of Hashem. Moshe then ascended the mountain to remain there for forty days in order to be taught the entire Torah and to then bring down the Luchos {Tablets upon which the Ten Commandments were written}. Bnei Yisroel miscalculated, thought that Moshe was dead, and sinned by making the Golden Calf. Moshe descended on the seventeenth day of Tammuz, saw the Golden Calf, and broke the Luchos. As a result of that, the ‘Annanei Hakavod’ were withdrawn. Moshe ascended the mountain again to plead forgiveness on behalf of Bnei Yisroel. On Yom Kippur, the tenth of Tishray, Moshe descended carrying Hashem’s message of “Salachti--I have forgiven.” On the next day Moshe gathered Bnei Yisroel to command them to bring sacrifices, which were then brought on the twelfth and thirteenth of Tishray. On the fourteenth, the materials that Moshe had collected were brought to the artisans who would be constructing the Mishkan {Tabernacle} and on the fifteenth the actual construction began. On that day, the Annanei Hakavod returned and served as a Succah--the loving protection that Hashem gave to His children. We reenact that display of love and intimacy by moving out of our houses into the Succah each year on the fifteenth day of Tishray. 22

Closeness, distance and then an even greater closeness. We don’t commemorate those first Annanei Hakavod--they didn’t last. It is the Annanei Hakavod that followed the repentance that are commemorated yearly. Closeness, distance and then an even greater closeness. This is a pattern that is repeated not only on a national level but also on an individual one. One of the most moving stories I’ve ever heard is told in Hasidic Tales of the Holocaust about a young girl named Ida. In 1944, she, her family and the rest of her Czechoslovakian town were sent to Auschwitz. The arrival platform was the last time she saw her family as only she and a sister passed the selection. She was given the job of sorting the clothes of the gassed according to size and quality to ready them for usage by German civilians. One night, a strange noise was heard under the three-tiered bunk bed where Ida slept along with thirty-five other girls. The other eleven had to turn in order to enable Ida to get out and see what was causing this noise. Under the bed, curled up into a frightened ball, she found a little girl who had escaped the children’s Aktion by hiding in the latrine and had later hid herself in the barracks. The girl’s name was Estherke and she had big blue frightened eyes and beautiful blond curls. Ida immediately fell in love with Estherke as her life took on renewed purpose and meaning--saving the life of Estherke. Her meager bread rations were split in half and somehow managed to sustain them both. When her camp was going to be evacuated Ida knew that Estherke would never pass the selection. She worked out a plan where Estherke, bundled in a blanket, was thrown over the electrified fence into the waiting arms of a male inmate in the adjacent men’s camp. Later that afternoon the package was sent again into the awaiting arms of Ida now in her new camp. In January 1945, when the camp was again evacuated, Ida had Estherke on her back in a continued on page 26 COMMUNITY LINKS

continued from page 22 knapsack as she began the infamous death march. Through winds and snow Ida marched on with her precious cargo until they arrived in Bergen Belsen. After months of horror, in April 1945, Ida, her sister, Estherke and the rest of those who had somehow managed to survive were liberated by the British. All wanted to return to their hometowns to see who might still be alive. For the ďŹ rst time since that fateful night in Auschwitz, Ida had to part from Estherke. They agreed to meet back in Prague in two weeks time no matter what the outcome of their searches would be and each went their way. The two weeks passed, Ida returned to Prague but Estherke failed to return. Months of intensive search yielded nothing. Estherke seemed to have vanished. Ida met and married a survivor and moved to America. Her sister outmaneuvered the British blockade and made her life in Israel. In the early 1950â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Ida went to Israel to visit her sister. On a very hot day she fainted in the street and was brought to a hospital by two young soldiers. A friendship developed and they visited her each day. As Ida was being discharged, she asked them how she could repay their kindness. One of them told her that he was getting married the next day and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d want her to be at the wedding. And so, with a gentle breeze blowing off the

mountains of Jerusalem, Ida found herself among other guests trying to ďŹ nd a familiar face. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bride is coming,â&#x20AC;? someone near her said. Ida moved forward to get a glimpse of the girl that had been described so lovingly. The door opened and she watched in amazement as her beloved Estherke walked in. And so, under the bright stars shining over the Holy City, Ida stepped forward and escorted her Estherke to the chupah {bridal canopy}. Closeness, distance and then an even greater closeness. The odyssey of Ida and Estherke. The odyssey of the Annanei Hakavod returning after the forgiveness of Yom Kippur. The odyssey that every soul takes as it departs from the heavenly sphere to enter the earthly realm, only to later return bearing the fruits of its earthly journey. There is another group of ordinary six that is followed by a holy seventh. The world will exist for six thousand years and then, after the transformation that the Moshiach will have brought toward the end of those six thousand, it will be rebuilt for the holy seventh. May this be a year of blessing and redemption, where the world will leave its present state of distance and confusion to begin the era of ultimate closeness.

Links to the Vaad COOKING ON SHABBOS I make a Chinese chicken for the Shabbos day meal which has a bit of a sauce in the bottom of the pan. May I heat up this chicken on an overturned pan on the blech in the morning? No, you may not. While many poskim hold that it is permitted to place cooked, dry food on top of a empty overturned pan which is placed on the blech, all poskim agree that it is forbidden to do so if the food being heated is a liquid, or will turn into liquid when it becomes hot. In your case, where there is liquid on the bottom of the pan, it is forbidden to place that pan of chicken anywhere on the blech. Similarly, it is permitted to place dry, cold meat, chicken or kugel on top of the lid of a pot of soup or cholent which is on the fire or in a crock-pot [even if the heat source is not covered], or directly on top of a radiator, even if the food will become piping hot after sitting on the lid or radiator. But it is forbidden to do so if the food contains a liquid which will become yad soledes bo, approximately 120°F or higher. Whenever food is reheated on Shabbos, care should be taken that the food items not be completely wrapped and sealed in aluminum foil. Instead, the edges of the foil should be left slightly apart to avoid the prohibition of hatmanah. Is it permissible to warm up frozen challah or pitas that have a bit of ice or frost on them, as it will definitely melt when they are placed on the blech? It is not permitted to warm up frozen challah or pita that have a bit of ice or frost on them, since that ice or frost has never been cooked and it will now become cooked on Shabbos. Is there a permissible way of making tea from a tea bag on Shabbos if I forgot to prepare essence? The opinion of Rav Moshe Feinstein was that it is permitted to use a tea bag on Shabbos when it is being used in a keli shelishi, which means that the water is poured from the urn into cup A, and from cup A into cup B, and then the tea bag is placed in cup B. He permitted doing so even if 40

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

the water in cup B is yad soledes bo (over 120°F). But many other poskim disagree with that ruling and do not permit using a tea bag in any cup, if the water temperature is yad soledes bo or higher. It is recommended to be stringent. I’m wondering if I’m allowed to read a recipe from a cookbook on Shabbos in order to prepare a dish that doesn’t involve any forbidden activities, such as a salad dressing. It is permitted to read a recipe from a cookbook to prepare a dish that doesn’t involve any forbidden activities. Am I allowed to measure in a measuring cup or spoon if I am careful to over- or undermeasure? If a particular food would not taste good unless it was prepared exactly as the recipe specifies, e.g., a dressing that must be spiced or flavored just so, then it is permitted to use a measuring spoon or cup to measure those ingredients precisely. But it is forbidden to use a measuring cup to measure foods where a little more or a little less of an ingredient will not affect the overall taste and quality of the dish, e.g., a pasta salad or a rice pilaf, where more or less pasta or rice will hardly make a difference in the taste of the finished product. It is permitted, however, to use a measuring cup or spoon if it is used for approximation and not for measuring an exact amount. My husband accidentally took off the chulent from the blech instead of the rice. Were we allowed to put it back on? As long as the cholent is still warm and it was completely cooked at the time that it was accidentally removed, it is permitted to be returned to the blech. Preferably, it should be returned to the blech before it is put down on the counter or table. But, b’diavad, even if it was put down on the counter or table it is permitted to be returned to the blech. If for some reason your cholent was cooking on the stove top without a blech and it was accidentally removed, it is permitted to place a blech on the fire on Shabbos and then return the cholent onto the blech.

Jewish Humor The First Jewish President The year is 2016 and the United States has elected the first woman as well as the first Jewish president, Susan Goldfarb. She calls up her mother a few weeks after election day and says, ‘So, Mom, I assume you will be coming to my inauguration?’ ‘I don’t think so. It’s a ten hour drive, your father isn’t as young as he used to be, and my arthritis is acting up again.’ ‘Don’t worry about it Mom, I’ll send Air Force One to pick you up and take you home. And a limousine will pick you up at your door.’ ‘I don’t know. Everybody will be so fancyschmantzy, what on earth would I wear?’ ‘Oh Mom,? replies Susan, ‘I’ll make sure you have a wonderful gown custom-made by the best designer in New York .’

‘Honey,’ Mom complains, ‘you know I can’t eat those rich foods you and your friends like to eat.’ The President-to-be responds, ‘Don’t worry Mom. The entire affair is going to be handled by the best caterer in New York , kosher all the way. Mom, I really want you to come.’ So Mom reluctantly agrees and on January 20, 2017, Susan Goldfarb is being sworn in as President of the United States . In the front row sits the new President’s mother, who leans over to a senator sitting next to her. ‘You see that woman over there with her hand on the Torah, becoming President of the United States ??’ The Senator whispers back, ‘Yes I do.’ Mom says proudly, ‘Her brother is a doctor.’

When you carry a card from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, you get incredible value.
