Letters to the Editor Lights Off Upstairs Have you seen the latest simchah trend? I am so disgusted with the display of opulence from so many in the community. Recently, I attended an aufruf, and what was intended to be a nice affair preparing this young man for the kedusha and seriousness of marriage, was turned into a disco. The venue was dimly lit (almost too dark to even see your fellow guests), with flashing lights going all over the room. Mind you, this is for a morning affair hosted in a shul, not nighttime. Why are lights needed? What a gesture of gashmiyus. Will this become the norm for all parties now where everyone will ask, “Who is doing your lighting?” Even if some families baruch Hashem have the means, why not save the money and give to tzedakah in the name of the young couple?

Avi Sender Kishke and Kiruv I enjoyed reading Elimelech Meisels’s article “From the Kiruv Files: A Shabbos Meal to Remember.” One can never know what impact a standard Shabbos meal can have on an unaffiliated Jew. This is why efforts like The Shabbos Project are so important. There have been countless Yidden that made their back to the fold over a hot bowl of matza ball soup and a plate of cholent. You don’t need to be a great talmud chacham to mikarev a lost soul. They just want to see the warmth of a Jewish family and the pleasantness Shabbos. Invite a guest over this Shabbos! H. Grunberger

Heartbreak

By Rabbi Goldwasser

S

halom bayis is one of the many compelling challenges of today. Hardly a day goes by that I do not get a sheiloh or am asked an eitzah relating to matters of shalom bayis. Often, when I am invited to speak, I am requested to address the topic of shalom bayis. In truth, shalom bayis is an achievement that sometimes requires a herculean effort. The Talmud relates (Gittin 52a) that R’ Meir once heard about a married couple who, lured into the Satan’s trap every single Erev Shabbos, could not stop fighting on Fridays. R’ Meir invited the couple to his house for three consecutive Fridays. Of course, in his home the couple did not fight. As a result, the husband and wife were able to develop a peaceful and long-lasting relationship. R’ Meir overheard the Satan bemoan: Woe, that R’ Meir expelled me from my home. Nowadays, I often wish that R’ Meir could be here to vanquish the Satan who seeks to destroy the shalom bayis of so many homes. Be that as it may, my address is often sought when the couple is either attempting a last-ditch effort to save their marriage or have divorced officially but still require arbitration to resolve outstanding issues. It was due to the latter concern that I made the acquaintance of *Eli and *Rachel. I met Eli first, and it was immediately apparent why I had been called in. Eli harbored a lot of bitterness, resentment and hurt. He was practically incapacitated by the divorce and believed that his wife was totally responsible for the breakup of their marriage. In retaliation, he was making it very difficult to settle some unresolved matters. In order to appropriately guide Eli, to enable him to let go and move on, I needed to gain a better perspective of their marriage and its subsequent failure. I engaged him in an amicable conversation and asked pertinent questions. I noticed that sometimes when he referred to his ex-wife, Rachel, he called her his “wife.” Once or twice Eli actually said something almost complimentary, about her.

June 10 - July 17, 2018

When we ended the first session, he remarked that this had been the most painful experience of his life. “Rabbi,” he said, “as soon as I can finally wrap this up, the better off I will be,” and he quickly left the study. Two days later, I met with Rachel, the ex-wife and we had a similar discussion. She placed the blame for the lack of shalom bayis that culminated in divorce squarely on her husband. She noted that the divorce was much easier for him, because the stigma associated with divorce was solely reserved for women. She had many harsh things to say about him, and I found it necessary to constantly redirect the conversation. At one point, though, she did seem to be interested in how her ex-husband was faring. As we ended our first session, Rachel impatiently said, “How long is this going to take? I just want this over!” I assured her that I would work as quickly as humanly possible. My post-mortem analysis of the two initial meetings was knotty. I was curious about the true deep feelings of the two individuals. I found it interesting that Eli sometimes still thought of Rachel as his wife, and Rachel expressed an interest in how Eli was getting along. I wondered whether these lapses were merely a slip of the tongue or perhaps more Freudian in nature. I met a few more times separately with each party, and finally could not resist asking each of them whether they retained any positive feelings for each other. To my great surprise, Eli said, “Of course, she’s not all bad. There were good things about her too.” However, when I asked Rachel about her feelings she wailed, “I hate him! How could I like anything about him?” However, her outburst seemed to belie another undercurrent of emotions that I sensed. I gave the matter some thought, and then informed Eli and Rachel that our next session would need to be a joint one. They had not seen each other for over a year and were quite hesitant about agreeing to such a meeting. Nevertheless, I explained that this joint session was necessary for two reasons. One, it would be more timeinfo@hbiz.us • 718.608.5952


efficient to coordinate direct communication between the two than to serve as an intermediary, constantly relaying each other’s responses. Secondly, I pointed out, the arbitration could only be finalized with their formal mechilah of each other. I cited the Rambam (Hilchos Teshuvah 2:9-10) that Yom Kippur and repentance only atone for sins between man and Hashem, but sins between man and his fellow are only forgiven when one asks the other for his forgiveness. The Rambam states, “Even if he only spoke badly about him, he must mollify the other person and ask for his forgiveness.” The Rambam advises that it is assur to be hateful and difficult to appease, and when the sinner asks for mechilah he should wholeheartedly forgive him. I insisted on the joint meeting despite their reluctance. After we had made some significant headway, I suggested that Rachel and Eli ask each other for mechilah. I explained that it was the proper thing for bnei Torah to do before they could move on with their lives. To my surprise, there was no response. Nobody moved; in fact, I’m not sure anyone breathed. “I know it’s difficult,” I said. “I understand there are many raw emotions here, but it’s something that has to be done.” After a few moments, Rachel erupted in a cry, “How can I ever be mochel him? Look what he did to me!” Understandably, the response was quick and harsh. “What I did to you? Look what you did to me!” The invective and insults began to fly. Finally, I intervened. “I agree there is a lot of hurt on both sides. Are there any positive feelings?” Rachel then quietly said, “It was never my dream in life to end up divorced.” Eli shot right back. “It wasn’t mine either!” and with that he broke down, shedding bitter tears. He looked at Rachel and said, “Do you think I wanted this?” The exchange between the two of them during the next few minutes defies explanation. Each one spoke of their expectations and hopes that things would have worked out differently. They deplored the reality of divorce. info@hbiz.us • 718.608.5952

That was my cue, and I quickly contended that it was never too late. They looked at me incredulously. “What’s not too late?” “Exactly as I said,” I explained. “It’s never too late for you.” “But we are divorced; the get was already given,” they both said in unison. I replied gently, “As R’ Yisroel Salanter stated so eloquently: As long as the person is alive there is still time to rectify a situation. I believe,” I continued, “b’emunah shleimah, that you were both meant to be together. In fact, when a couple who were meant to be together experience insurmountable challenges and choose to divorce, and then see a faint glimmer of hope for reconciliation, they are permitted to remarry and fulfill a special mitzvah.” I also told them that R’ Shmuel Vital is cited in the Sheilos U’Teshuvos Be’er Mayim Chaim, “In my eyes, there is no greater mitzvah than one taking back his wife whom he divorced. It is a strong inspiration for shalom bayis.” R’ Vital quotes the Medrash on the words “Do not hide yourself from your kin” (Yeshayah 58:7) that this also refers to a spouse that one has divorced. “I’m not that quick on the uptake,” said Eli. “What is the Rav suggesting?” “I would like to suggest that you spend time together reacquainting yourselves, and explore any possible options of reuniting,” I said. “How about all the insults and the hurt?” they asked almost simultaneously. “Remember,” I said, “you were each mochel the other. Your past history has been deleted and you can start afresh.” We discussed my suggestion at length, and before Eli and Rachel left my study I had their commitment to at least sit down and talk. After five months of meetings, compromises and healing, I was invited to be the mesader kiddushin for Eli and Rachel, who had achieved the near-impossible feat of granting unconditional mechilah and developing a deeper appreciation, understanding, and admiration for each other that would last a lifetime.  15

Self-Regulation is a skill everyone needs to manage the daily trials and tribulations. Sometimes we become incapacitated to cope, and with all the pressures on our youth, all too often we are seeing more self-regulation needs in this general population. Managing emotions and monitoring behaviors is a particular challenge for some. Self-regulation skills need to be taught and learned so that our children have the capacity to manage everyday conflicts, preserve under stress and maintain a mentally healthy state of being. The Zones of Regulation (2011) curriculum, comprises of lessons and activities designed by Leah Kuypers, M. A. Ed., OTR/L to help children and students gain skills in the area of self-regulation. The lessons and learning activities are designed to help the children recoguse strategies to regulate the Zone they are in. In addition to addressing self-regulation, the students will be gaining an increased vocabulary of emotional terms, skills in reading facial expressions, perspective on how others see and react to their behavior, insight on events that trigger their behavior, calming and alerting strategies, and problem solving skills. Zones trainings provide strategies to teach children to become more aware of and independent in controlling their emotions and impulses, managing their sensory needs and improving their ability to problem solve conflicts. Practical ideas are provided that can easily be incorporated into the classroom and home.

"Out of my 16 years as a school social worker I can count on one hand the workshops I have attended that provided extremely meaningful AND applicable information in which research has students in a meaningful, highly impactful way. THIS is one of those workshops." -School Social Worker, Minneapolis Public Schools, MN "Presenter was engaging, professional, knowledgeable, humorous and 'real'. Lots of practical ideas for incorporating lessons into the classroom." -Special Educator, SASAD, IL "Wonderful presentation, very good presenter, loved the down to earth approach." -Occupational Therapist, Cincinnati, OH

Tale of Two Closets

t was the best of closets, it was the worst of closets. One was relatively vacant, the other was jam-packed. But, which was the best and which was the worst? Naturally, our tale begins in a clothing store. After all, these are closets we’re talking about. Although this shopping trip took place over 20 years ago, the memory is still clearly etched in my mind. Really, it was not a special event; I am not even sure why it made such an impression on me. A woman selling girls’ clothing was running a sale – I no longer remember the amount of the discount– but, it was enough to get me there and scour the racks for bargains. I remember leaving the clothing sale, empty handed, wondering why anyone would spend such a fortune on clothing for little girls. And they called this a sale!?! I couldn’t help but notice a neighbor of mine with a few daughters there, heading out with an armful of garments. It could be she was preparing for a simcha, but I knew that she kept her girls very well-dressed and wondered: why and how does she spend so much money on something that is not really very important? At the time, I had one daughter, Adina, and several sons. Although some in my situation may have spoiled their daughter, I was very careful not to get into that. Besides, it seemed to me so inefficient to get expensive clothing for one little girl, who had no sisters after her to pass them on to. So, Adina had to manage with a limited wardrobe. For school, she had a uniform, so during the week she always had what to wear. Add a couple of things for Sundays, and that part of her wardrobe was easily taken care of. For Shabbos she also had 34 |

a couple of outfits; all in all, however, she really didn’t have a lot of stuff. Although I was grateful for any clothing passed to me, somehow, I didn’t get much, and she had to get by with minimal attire. I am sure she wasn’t so thrilled, but she was a good and respectful daughter and accepted my way. I recall planning her wardrobe for her year in Eretz Yisroel. “Girls are taking a third suitcase!” she told me. “What will we do?” Just a reminder – back in those days, a suitcase was able to hold 70 pounds. That was plenty, in my mind. “I don’t get it,” I responded. “You need to wear a blue skirt every day – take a couple of those. A few blouses, and a couple of Shabbos outfits. You do not intend to look for a shidduch while there, so what else do you need?” Always a sensible girl, she agreed. Well, we had a good laugh later, when she shared the following conversation with me, one that had taken place between her and her roommate. Upon arrival to her dorm, all the young ladies were greeting old friends from camp and getting to know the new girls, while settling into their rooms and unpacking. Adina had unpacked quickly and was sitting around, when her roommate asked, “Can I check out your closet?” “Sure, go ahead,” Adina told her. The roommate opened the door, stared for a moment, and asked, “But where are your clothes?!” Where, indeed! “They’re in there,” Adina cheerfully responded. She didn’t need more. Did any of the girls? With Hashem’s help, I continued having children, and a few girls came along. As my family grew and aged, a few new factors came into play.

Sleep Apnea: The Benefits of an Oral Appliance Over CPAP By Dr. Jacques Doueck, Diplomate Academy Clinical Sleep Disorder Disciplines Whether it’s the snoring and gasping or the tossing and turning, when you suffer from sleep apnea, it keeps you from resting well and feeling good. At Doueck Dental & Sleep Medicine, our team of specialists understands the difficulties sleep apnea cause both in the bedroom and out of it. Although many doctors go straight to recommending a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine, we don’t. While CPAPs effectively treat the symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea, they’re not always the best option. In many cases, oral appliances (small devices you wear in your mouth) can treat your sleep apnea symptoms just as effectively as a CPAP machine and with much less hassle. Here’s why:

Oral appliances stay in place better than CPAP masks CPAP machines use masks that cover either your nose or your nose and mouth, straps that hold the mask in place, and a motor that blows a continuous stream of air into your lungs, keeping your airways open.

An oral appliance, on the other hand, consists of two small devices that look like mouthguards or retainers. They’re held together by a small hinge and snap onto your lower and upper teeth. This device moves the jaw forward and into an alignment that keeps your airways open. Due to how they’re designed, oral devices tend to be more comfortable than CPAP machines. The device is more likely to stay in place and cause fewer sleep disturbances.

Oral appliances travel easily If you’ve never seen a CPAP, it’s more than just a mask and straps. A tube attaches the mask to a machine, which holds the motor and pushes the air. While the machines are smaller now than in the past, they’re not always easily portable.

Oral appliances, though, are small enough to put in your pocket and take with you to a hotel. They’re not only easily portable, but they’re also quiet, silent in fact, unlike the constant hum of a CPAP machine. Since they don’t make noise, oral devices make travel easy on those you’re traveling with, too. Those sharing your sleeping space don’t have to listen to the CPAP machine all night, nor do they have to listen to you snore.

Sleep Apnea: The Benefits of an Oral Appliance Over CPAP By Dr. Jacques Doueck, Diplomate Academy Clinical Sleep Disorder Disciplines

Oral appliances are simple to care for When you have a CPAP machine, it requires daily care. Each morning when you wake up, you have to clean your mask with soap and warm water and dry it with a towel. Once a week, wash the CPAP tube in your shower, letting the water run through it. Wash or change the machine’s filter once a month.

Oral appliances require little care. Clean them as you do your teeth, brushing gently with a toothbrush and nonabrasive toothpaste. Store in cool water with half teaspoon of dishwashing liquid (Like Palmolive). Never use mouthwash, over-the-counter effervescent denture cleaner, or alcohol to clean your oral appliance.

Try an oral appliance first

As a dentist with advanced training in treating snoring and sleep apnea Dr. Jacques Doueck can custom fit you with the right oral appliance for you. There’s no reason you shouldn’t try one of these custom-fit sleep apnea devices before opting for a CPAP machine. Oral devices are easier to use, travel with, and clean. And because of all that, you’re more likely to use an oral appliance than you would a CPAP machine, which is reason enough to give one a try.

TORTURE. Going to use insect repellent? Get one that is mixed with sunscreen. The less things you need to apply, the better. Toes are one of the most sensitive areas of our body. Be sure to get him waterproof shoes. The smell of chlorine in a pool can be overwhelming. You can try noseplugs to help him with the odor. Outdoor pools should be better than indoor pools, because the smell has more room to dissipate. If your child still can’t take the smell, stick to beaches and lakes instead of pools. With the appropriate preparation, summertime can be a wonderful experience for you and your child. Think in advance, prepare, respect your child’s sensitivities – and have a great time!  To find out more about Hand On OT, visit www.handsonotrehab.com.

a new baby boy, so the girls were staying with me, their bubby, for a few days. One of the exciting aspects of coming to my home, was that they didn’t need to pack a thing. Tehila had extra robes for them, tights, clothing, even slippers. It really gave me the shivers. Adina and I had a good laugh, but I couldn’t help but wonder: will Tehila manage her life as beautifully as her older sister? Will Tehila continue in the way of ‘make-do’, a concept so precious to me, and so ingrained in her older sister? Will Tehila be able to relate with disdain to a materialistic, demanding lifestyle; running after every new fashion, needing more and more things – better and newer, in the neverending cycle that some girls get into? Good attitudes, good friends, and a strong relationship with her family, allowed Adina to pull through her test. I hope they will do the same for Tehila.

were able to wait in between jumps. What if your child throws up as soon as you pull out of the driveway? Give them ginger (real ginger – not ginger flavor). Find ginger candies and let them suck the candies in the car. Visual screen stimulation can also help overly sensitive children. You can let them look at pictures on your iPhone or iPad. When You Get There There may be so many fun things to do that you’re busy from morning ‘til night. Make sure you work in time for your child’s sensory diet. You’ll benefit both in the short-term (being sensory regulated will make her more willing to try new experiences) and in the long-term (you won’t have lost ground when you come back to school and a regular schedule). Separate Beaches and Pools Apply sunscreen BEFORE you get to beach. You know that gritty sensation of trying to put sunscreen on when your legs are sandy? For you it’s annoying. For your sensory child, it’s

mitzvahs, and naturally, there was a need to dress up for these simchas. With a few sisters close in age, it was no longer so inefficient to buy girls’ clothes; we could make good use of what we bought. At the same time, we moved to Eretz Yisroel, where clothing gemachim function as second-hand clothing stores. Now I could purchase skirts, blouses, all kinds of garments, each for about a dollar, or even less. With all these changes, my younger daughters ended up with a lot more clothing than their older sister had. We now arrive at the tale of the second closet. Bursting at the seams. My seven-yearold daughter, Tehila, has so many dresses, jumpers, and skirts that I am embarrassed to count them. The contrast was emphasized when I was hosting my granddaughters, who are about the same size. Their mother, Adina, my darling daughter who grew up and managed with a minimal wardrobe, had 42 |

MONTHLY TORAH RIDDLES

?

By Mordechai Weintraub, z"l.

Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 Q5 Q6

Who am I? The Torah commands me to retire from active service at the age of 50. Who am I? I may not do my job if I drink a glass of wine.

How Is This Possible? I have the option to recite the tefillah of Mincha at the end of the proper time for Mincha, yet I do not recite it. How Is This Possible? The congregation must read the same Parsha twice in the same year. How Is This Possible? I make models. However, I am forbidden to create this particular model of metal, yet I may create the model using any other material.

How Is This Possible? Normally, the Kohen, Levi, and Yisroel – in that in order – get an Aliyah to be called up to the Torah to recite the Brachos. However, on this day, each of three Kohanim got an Aliyah, one Kohen after another. (Please note: there are two possible solutions).

Q7

One of the reasons for the destructions of Eretz Yisroel was the lack of respect for a specific Bracha. Which Bracha was it? SEE RIDDLE ANSWERS ON PAGE 70

MONTHLY TORAH RIDDLES

?

ANSWERS TO THE RIDDLE QUESTIONS FROM PAGE 61

By Mordechai Weintraub, z"l.

A1 A2 A3

I am a Levi. The Rambam (Hilchos Klei Hamikdash 3:8) ruled that a Levi was disqualified from serving at the Mishkan and at the Beis Hamikdash at 50 years of age.

I am a Kohen. The Rambam (Hilchos Bais Hamikdash 1) states: “If a Kohen drinks a quarter of a log of undiluted wine that was at least forty days old, it is forbidden for him to enter the Beis Hamikdash beyond the area of the Mizbeach.” I haven’t davened Mincha and the day is waning, and the sun is going down. However, I have also not yet davened Musaf, and there is only time for one Tefilla before Shkiya. I should daven Musaf. I can repeat the Ma’ariv Shmoneh Esrei as a Tashlumin – as a make-up for Mincha, according the Shagas Aryeh 19. (See the Mishnah Berurah 286:13).

A4

It is possible for the Torah portion of “Vayailech” to be read in Shul twice in the same year. The rule is: Whenever there is a Shabbos between Yom Kippur and Succos, the Parsha of “Vayailech” is read on Shabbos T’shuvah; otherwise the Parsha of “Vayailech” is read before Rosh Hashanah. Therefore, in such a year, we read the Parsha of “Vayailech” on the first Shabbos of the year (Shabbos T’shuvah) and it will be read again on the last Shabbos of the year.

A5

I am a Jew who makes models. I am forbidden to build a model of the Menorah that was in the Bais Hamikdash. However, this is only forbidden if my model is made of metal, but I may form it out of any other material, according to Rav Moshe Feinstein (Igeres Moshe, Yora Dayah, Chalek 3:33). The reason for this is: Any Menorah that is not of metal would be disqualified at the Beis Hamikdash. Therefore, it is not included in the prohibition.

A6

The day was Simchas Torah. On that day, the first Kohen was called up to the Torah for the ‘Chosson Torah’ Aliyah. The second Kohen was called up to the Torah for the ‘Chosson Bereishis’ Aliyah. The third Kohen was called up to the Torah for the ’Maftir’ Aliyah (See Mishnah Berurah 135:36). Alternatively, that Shabbos there were only kohanim present in the Shul. Therefore, three Kohanim each received an Aliyah, one Kohen after another Kohen, as per Shulchan Aruch (Orach Chaim 135:12).

A7 70 |

The lack of respect for the Bracha of Birchas Hatorah, was one of the reasons for the destruction of Eretz Yisroel, according to the Gemara (Bava Metziah 85a-b, Rashi).
