PEARL ESSENCE

Q A

I saw someplace that “most lipstick contains fish scales” what does this mean?

It’s referring to pearl essence (or pearlescence), is a substance extracted from (kosher) herring scales. It provides the shine to herring, and serves the same function in certain cosmetics. It doesn’t pose a kashrus concern.

HAFRASHAS CHALLAH AMOUNTS

Q

I’m mafrish challah every time I bake my 6 pound Shabbos challah recipe, and a neighbor told me I also have to be mafrish challah when I make homemade pizza. Do I have to be mafrish challah from pizza? If yes, how large does the recipe have to be?

A

The general rule is that if one bakes a large enough batter of any of the five primary grains, they must be mafrish challah. Everyone agrees that the five primary grains are wheat, barley, rye, oats, and spelt, but there is a three-way disagreement as to how much of those grains must be in a batter for hafrashas challah to be required, as follows:

Shulchan Aruch (OC 456:1 & YD 324:1) tells us the shiur (quantity) for which hafrashas challah is required is equal to the volume of 43.2 eggs. Thus, the shiur is volumetric and is equal to the displacement of 43.2 eggs. How does that translate into modern

measurements? The three primary opinions are Rav Avraham Chaim Na’ah, Rav Moshe Feinstein, and Chazon Ish who respectively are of the opinion that 43.2 eggs is the same volume as 10.5, 15, or 18.25 (eight ounce) cups. The common practice is that if one bakes a batter with less than 10.5 cups of flour they are not mafrish challah, if they use between 10.5 and 18.25 cups they are mafrish without a bracha, and if they use more than 18.25 cups then they are mafrish challah and recite the bracha. As noted, the shiur for hafrashas challah is a volumetric amount, and it is the same for all of the five primary grains. However the density of the different grains is not the same, and therefore when one converts the shiur into weight the amounts are different depending on which ingredient is being used. We calculated the conversion for wheat flour, oat flour, and whole oats, and found the following: Wheat flour – 2.75 pounds (separate without a bracha) and 4.75 pounds (separate with a bracha); oat flour – 2.5 pounds (no bracha) and 4.25 pounds (with a bracha); whole oats – 2 pounds (no bracha) and 4.25 pounds (with a bracha). For example, if one bakes oatmeal cookies with 2 pounds of whole oats they should be mafrish challah without a bracha, but if one bakes their own pizza with wheat flour – as in the original question – they would not be mafrish challah unless they used at least 2.75 pounds of flour and would not recite a bracha unless there was at least 4.75 pounds.

Can A Person Sleep For Seventy Years? BY RABBI LABEL LAM

H

ow odd it feels to look out at a frozen landscape of trees standing as skeleton-like statues, knowing that it is time to celebrate the “New Year for Trees”- Tu B’Shevat. It may make us wonder aloud as we crunch on carobs and down some dates, “What’s wrong with this picture?” The appointed season for the “New Year for Trees” is, on a practical level, a fiscal cut off point to determine which fruits belong to which year. It occurs at that time when the trees are ready to blossom as winter’s water graduates to become syrup through the xylem and phylum. The Talmud relates a famous incident regarding Choni Hamagel. He was troubled by a verse we are all familiar with: “Shir Hamaalos…When Hashem returns the captivity of Tzion, we will have been like dreamers.” Since the time of the exile between the first Beis HaMikdash to the second was seventy years, Choni Hamagel wondered, “Can a person sleep for seventy years?” Choni Hamagel met a young man on the road planting a carob tree. He inquired how long it would take for that tree to bear fruit. The man told him, “Seventy years.” Choni Hamagel asked him if he thought he would be around to reap the benefits of his labor. The man informed him, “When I came into this world, I found a carob tree that others had planted for me. Just as my ancestors planted for me, I plant this tree for my descendants.” Shortly after that brief encounter, Choni Hamagel fell into a deep slumber. Remarkably, he awoke seventy years later to find the grandchild of that farmer picking carobs from the same tree. Choni Hamagel revisited his own community where he had been presumed dead for many years. He heard his Torah being quoted in the Beis Medrash. He even encountered his very own grandchildren, but

20

JANUARY 2014

nobody believed him to be the real Choni Hamagel. He was in a world not his own, so he prayed to taken from that world and, once again, his wish was granted. (Taanis 23A) We imagine that this should have been a dream come true. In fact, it was an intolerable nightmare. Why? The first part of the story is perhaps the key to explain the second. The man planting the tree lived with the accepted reality that we are here in this world to plant. “Those who sow with tears, reap in joy!” In this world of action, we perform tasks whose results are beyond our imagination. Just as we enjoy the benefits and the bounty of sacrifices made by previous generations, we too are receiving and passing on dreams to future worlds. It is not our purpose in this place to reap the results of our investments. We are granted just enough nachas to encourage us to keep on moving and doing. To be a mere spectator in life without an active purpose is an exercise in futility and likely yields a lethal dose of frustration. It is told that Rabbi Shlomo Hyman, zt”l, the first Rosh HaYeshiva at Torah V’Daas, was once giving a shiur on a snowy day. Although there were only two students present, he gave the lesson with the same thunderous enthusiasm as if the room was filled with many more. One of the students told the Rebbe, “There are only two of us here!” Rabbi Hyman answered, “I’m teaching you, your children and all your talmidim. I see thousands here.” One of the students was inspired at that moment to begin a dedicated career of education. There were thousands in the room that day. On Tu B’ Shevat, we honor the vision, the process, and the endless possibility for productive living. Since, as King David says, (Psalms 90:10) “The days of our years are seventy” (25,550 days to be exact), we might appreciate that question differently, “Can a person sleep for seventy years?” Reprinted with permission www.torah.org.

Jewish Humor Little 5-year old Sarah was playing a word game with her Bubbie. She had just drawn her second “O”. Switching the letter cards around, Sarah put them together in front of her and with a triumphal cry, she said “Look Bubbie, I made a word!” Looking at her cards, she had lined them up to spell K-O-O-B.

For all your household needs Reasonable prices, quick service.

Yisrael Goldstein 773-590-2102 yigoldstein@yahoo.com

Bubbie Beckie asked, “What kind of word is ‘koob’?” “No Bubbie, you’re not saying it right -- it says ‘book’.” “But, darling, you’ve spelled it backwards!” her Bubbie explained lovingly. With a sigh reserved for dumb adults, she explained, “Of course I have. I’m Jewish!”
