As Kerry Works On Peace Framework, Jewish Groups Keeping Low Profile

Israeli Scholars In The Left’s Cross Hairs By Richard L. Cravatts

By Ron Kampeas

As the recent calls for boycotts and sanctions against Israeli universities by the American Studies Association (ASA) and the Modern Language Association (MLA) clearly indicate, an ideological imbalance in the professoriate has resulted in a collective antipathy toward Israel as the latest villain in the academic left’s panoply of oppressors –this time of the victim of the moment, the Palestinians. These alleged transgressions on the part of srael are often further con ated ith the ie that the “brutal occupation” of Zionism has unleashed “crimes against humanity” through U.S. complicity; that as its proxy in the Middle East, Israel tarnishes America through its misdeeds and mirrors the U.S.’s own imperialistic, militant, and anti-Muslim impulses. This view of the colonial oppression by the occupier, Israel, against a guiltless indigenous people, the Palestinians, is, of course, nothing new on campus. What was unique about the MLA’s and the ASA’s approach was the breathtakingly Orwellian notion that not only was Israel itself guilty of

In contrast to the noisy Iran sanctions contretemps between the administration and much of the pro-Israel community, the leading centrist Jewish groups have largely adopted a wait-and-see approach as Secretary of State John Kerry works on the framework agreement. The American Israel Public Affairs Committee, which usually takes the lead in framing community response to peace talks, has been quiet, congressional and administration insiders said. “As we have since the beginning of the process, we continue to support Secretary Kerry’s diplomatic efforts to achieve a secure and lasting peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians,” AIPAC spokesman

Marshall Wittman said in a statement to JTA. There are a number of reasons for the community’s relati ely lo pro le n addition to their focus on ran, centrist groups do not want to prematurely weigh in on an anticipated proposal that has yet to see the light of day. The muted response also echoes the approach taken by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has emphasized that he is receptive to Kerry’s efforts, even as he has suggested that Israel will not necessarily have to agree to all the elements of an American framework proposal. In addition, the Obama administration has tried to head off concerns by stressing that it is developing the framework in close consultation with Israeli and Palestinian leaders, emphasizing that there will be no surprises. At least 50 Jewish organizational leaders received

It’s no secret that many in the academic community support boycotts as a means of pressuring and punishing Israel. So it’s understandable that proposed legislation to prohibit use of public funds to promote boycotts – authored by New York State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver and now being considered by the Assembly – has created an uproar. An identical bill was passed last week by the State Senate. But the logic employed by those opposed to the legislation escapes us. After all, opponents of the bill – including those not openly hostile to Israel – claim it stifl es free expression and academic freedom, yet the law only seeks to discourage actions designed to limit those very values. The statement of intent in a section of the bill itself, which critics conveniently leave out of any discussions, provides an important context in which to consider the legislation. Here are some excerpts: The legislature hereby finds that it is beneficial to students of this state to have access to an education that is not bound by borders and to have the opportunity to obtain a global education…. A global education allows students to connect, compete, and cooperate with their peers around the world. Therefore it is the policy of the State of New York that colleges not use state funds to support boycotts of countries, or higher education institutions located in countries, that host higher education institutions chartered by the Board of Regents of the University of the State of New York. In order to implement this policy the operative provisions of the law provide, in pertinent part: No college in this state may use state aid provided directly to such college to: fund an academic entity, provide funds for membership in an academic entity or fund travel or lodging for any employee to attend any meeting of such academic entity if such entity has issued a public resolution or other official statement or undertaken an official action boycotting a host country or higher education institutions located in such country. Significantly, in terms of free expression and academic freedom, another provision of the bill clarifies that it does not limit the attendance by any employee of a college at any event of an academic entity that boycotts a host country or higher education institutions located in such country and attendance at meetings of any such entity shall not be used by the college with regard to employment decisions.

Typically, though, for most opponents who have gone public with their views, the pro-free speech and academic freedom thrust of the bill is ignored. Thus, the New York City chapter of the Center for Constitutional Rights airily concluded in a letter to legislators last week that the legislation “attempts to stifl e constitutionally protected speech by denying aid to colleges and universities who fund membership in organizations that support boycotts of an enumerated list of countries, including Israel. But government restrictions and regulations cannot be based on the desire to punish speech that aims to infl uence public opinion on a nation’s policies and actions….” It was even more pronounced for The New York Times. In an editorial titled “A Chill on Speech,” the Times presented the issue as follows: The New York legislature is moving to pass a bill that would bar state financing for academic groups that have taken official action to boycott higher-education institutions in Israel. The initiative, which last week passed the State Senate, is now pending before the Assembly. It should be voted down by lawmakers, or, if they prove feckless, Gov. Andrew Cuomo should veto it. The bill was introduced after the American Studies Association, an organization of scholars, in December adopted a resolution supporting a call by Palestinians to boycott Israeli academic institutions. The group said it would refuse formal collaborations with Israeli academic institutions or with scholars who represent those institutions or the Israeli government until “Israel ceases to violate human rights and international law.” .... The New York bill is an ill-considered response to the American Studies Association resolution and would trample on academic freedoms and chill free speech and dissent. Academics are rightly concerned that it will impose a political test on faculty members seeking University support for research meetings and travel…. Apparently, the wholesale disenfranchisement of the entire Israeli infrastructure of higher education is of no moment. There is much to commend the anti-boycott bill, if for nothing else than as a public rebuke for the arrant sophistry of the Times and others of like mind. But more to the point in terms of the proposed legislation, is New York State not permitted to try to address efforts at closing off higher educational opportunities for its students? The Assembly should approve the bill, as the Senate has already done, and Gov. Cuomo should sign it.

Murderers’ Agenda

John Kerry adamantly wants to carve a Palestinian state out of the center of Israel, even though Palestinians assassinated the U.S. ambassador in the Sudan, aided in the murder of 241 Marines in Lebanon, allied with Saddam Hussein in the Gulf War, and celebrated the

9/11 attacks on America. It is unconscionable for the secretary of state to promote the agenda of murderers of Americans. In God we trust; not in a delusionary John Kerry. Chaim ben Zvi Queens, NY

Abbas Again Says No To Israel As A Jewish State By P. DAVID HORNIK At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu again sounded the Jewish-state theme. After meeting there with Secretary of State John Kerry, Netanyahu told reporters: The meeting was very good…. I restated the two principal issues that concern us: mutual recognition of two nation states – with one of them being recognized as the Jewish people’s nation state – and of course, security. The next day on Israeli TV, Justice Minister Tzipi Livni, a dove and outspoken believer in a two-state solution who is also chief Israeli negotiator in the current Israeli-Palestinian talks, made a surprising, uncharacteristically stern statement of her own: If [Palestinian Authority president] Mahmoud Abbas continues to insist on positions that we and the rest of the world consider unacceptable, the Palestinians will be the ones who pay the price. At least one of the “positions” she was referring to was undoubtedly one that Abbas voiced, as he has on many other occasions, last month. In an interview on Moroccan TV, Abbas said quite plainly: “Palestine can never recognize Israel as a Jewish state.” Just a week before that he had received backing from nine foreign ministers of the Arab League, who P. David Hornik is a freelance writer and translator living in Israel. He is the author of “Choosing Life in Israel.”

notified Kerry that they, too, would not accept Israel as a Jewish state. Some believe the Jewish-state issue is no big deal in itself, a hitch created by Netanyahu to foil the negotiations. Didn’t the Palestinians already recognize Israel in 1993 at the start of the Oslo process? That was, of course, the “peace process” that resulted in the creation of the Palestinian Authority, waves of terror against Israel, and repeated attempts – up to the present one driven by the Obama administration – to reach a final agreement. The process was officially launched by an exchange of letters, dated September 9, 1993, between the then leader of the PLO, Yasir Arafat, and the then Israeli prime minister, Yitzhak Rabin. Arafat’s letter stated: The PLO recognizes the right of the state of Israel to exist in peace and security…. [T] he PLO affirms that those articles of the Palestinian Covenant which deny Israel’s right to exist, and the provisions of the Covenant which are inconsistent with the commitments of this letter are now inoperative and no longer valid. The PLO in fact never invalidated those articles and provisions of its covenant. Even more significantly, though, the meaning of Arafat’s “recognition” of Israel emerged in the 2000 Camp David Summit, which basically broke down over Arafat’s insistence on the “right” of millions of descendants of refugees to “return” to Israel. In other words, Israel could exist – so long as it was flooded by Arabs and, by demographic fiat, ceased being the Jewish state.

Ironically, the Jewish-state demand was first made by a group of leftist Israeli intellectuals in talks with a group of Palestinian intellectuals in July 2001 – a little over nine months after the Second Intifada terror onslaught against Israel had erupted in the wake of Camp David. And the demand was first officially raised by none other than Livni, then foreign minister in Ehud Olmert’s government, in negotiations in 2007 with a Palestinian delegation. In adopting the demand, then, Netanyahu was in no way breaking new ground. Which brings us back to the present, and the continued ironclad Palestinian and Arab refusal to accept the existence in their midst of a single non-Arab, non-Muslim, Jewish state. In a sense, all the failure and havoc wrought by the Oslo process – from suicide bombings and rocket attacks to UN-centered Palestinian diplomatic warfare against Israel to unending incitement – were implicit in that lack of a “Jewish state” proviso in the original Oslo documents. Not that a miraculous transformation would occur even if a Palestinian or Arab leader were to endorse those words. But the absence of those words speaks volumes about the religio-historical depth of the regional delegitimization of Israel. On the Israeli left and in Washington (including, in recent times, the Clinton, Bush, and Obama administrations) there is great resistance to internalizing that lesson. Finally assimilating it, however, would mean getting over the pointless obsession with the Palestinian issue and taking the U.S.-Israel alliance out of its baneful shadow.

Netanyahu’s Modest Proposal By SHLOMO GREENWALD

How political movements gain footholds remains one of the great true-life mysteries. In the 1960s and early 1970s, for example, Yasir Arafat was generally viewed as a thug and a terrorist by most of the international community, as was his Fatah movement and the PLO. So why and how did this movement become acceptable – even admired – on such a wide scale? Some will point to Arafat’s indefatigable spirit and determination. Others will note geopolitical shifts, such as Israel’s beginning to move away from its socialist roots, thereby allying itself more fully with the United States at a time when the U.S. was increasingly being viewed as a bully on the international stage. Still others will impute anti-Semitic motives to those seeking to further the Palestinian cause while ignoring or downplaying the causes of dozens of nationalistic movements on every continent. One thing is certain: it must start with an idea. And that brings us to Benjamin Netanyahu. Full disclosure: Netanyahu has been one of my favorite Israeli politicians for a long time, despite his prisoner releases and settlement freezes. Maybe I’m a sucker for his polished English, witty oratorical style, and clever sarcasm. My personal feelings aside, he has always been a force to reckon with. He’s advocated – and, more important, implemented – strong security and defense policies and, at least thus far, resisted the strongest negotiating demands of the Palestinians (and sometimes the Americans). Shlomo Greenwald is associate editor of The Jewish Press.

Given the circumstances and constraints, he’s usually acted admirably and courageously. He did so again with his recent suggestion that Jews living in settlements over the green line should remain there, under Palestinian rule, should a peace agreement with the Palestinians be implemented. It was a brilliant tactical move that perhaps signals the beginning of an era of thinking differently about the Palestinian-Israeli conflict – and that just might fill a decades-old perception gap. To say the hundreds of thousands of Jews driven out of Arab countries in the years after Israel’s founding have not received the same share of attention as Palestinian refugees is akin to saying foosball tournaments don’t receive the kind of television air play accorded the NFL. Certainly not one of those Jewish refugees has ever been invited to address the plenary session of the UN General Assembly, nor has the subject inspired 7,000-word articles in The New Yorker documenting their sufferings. More to the point, can anyone offer a satisfactory explanation, without invoking anti-Semitism (which no doubt does play a part in it), as to why Israel is repeatedly lambasted for the exodus of Palestinians – during a war, mind you – some sixty-six years ago even as more than a million and a half remain in the country as Israeli citizens? Meanwhile Algeria and Egypt and Iraq and Libya and Morocco and Syria and Yemen receive nary a whisper of rebuke for persecuting Jews and confiscating their property. Predictably, both right-wing and left-wing Israelis have harshly criticized Netanyahu’s remarks; the right is never happy with any indication a Palestinian state may be on the horizon and the left frequently

CULINARY DEPOT THE LEADING DESIGNER AND SUPPLIER FOR ALL KOSHER COMMERCIAL KITCHENS

parrots Palestinian concerns. Those Palestinians concerns may best be summarized by PA negotiator Saeb Erekat, who responded to Netanyahu’s statement by saying, “Anyone who says he wants to keep settlers in the Palestinian state is actually saying that he doesn’t want a Palestinian state. No settler will be allowed to stay in the Palestinian state, not even a single one, because settlements are illegal and the presence of the settlers on the occupied lands is illegal.” So here you have two propositions: Netanyahu says I’ll work for a Palestinian state but you must treat Jews living in that state as we treat Arabs living in Israel; Erekat says nothing doing. I understand that many defenders of Israel believe there’s no point in taking the higher road, in looking reasonable while the Palestinians look belligerent, because the international community will always blame Israel for everything. But ideas have to start somewhere. And Netanyahu has reinvigorated an idea, or at least he will have done so if the media catch on and give it its due. The proposal is simple and certainly just: Israel will negotiate with the Palestinians for the creation of a Palestinian state, but the state must not be Judenrein. Jews should be allowed to live in their homes. But this idea must grow; it must break through. So if you’re in a position to spread the idea, please speak out, call out, write out. No Palestinian state unless Jews are allowed to live there as free men and women, just as Muslims and Christians freely walk the streets (and vote and work and go to school and become members of Knesset) in the Jewish state.

Christie Faces Uphill Fight For His Political Life By JONATHAN S. TOBIN In the first days after the Bridgegate scandal, it appeared likely to me that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s chance of winning the Republican presidential nomination in 2016 had been lost. But it never occurred to me that within a month he would be fighting for his very political life rather than just a shot at the presidency. Yet the latest twist in this bizarre scandal has brought Christie to the point of a political deathwatch. Last week, The New York Times reported that the lawyer for David Wildstein – Christie’s longtime friend, political ally and the man he appointed to the board of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey that administers the bridge – stated in a letter that evidence exists tying the governor to the scandal. It is true that the language in the letter was, as the Washington Examiner’s Philip Klein pointed out, “slippery.� The governor, in fact, did not deny knowledge that the lanes were closed but rather that he knew the traffic jam was the result of a political prank played on the citizens of the region in order to get even with the Democratic mayor of Fort Lee for his refusal to endorse Christie’s reelection. As such, it may well be that Wildstein’s mouthpiece is merely seeking to exonerate his client on charges that are serious enough to cause him to invoke the Fifth Amendment when he testified about Jonathan S. Tobin is senior online editor of Commentary magazine and chief political blogger at www.commentarymagazine.com, where this first appeared. He can be reached via e-mail at jtobin@ commentarymagazine.com.

the incident before the state legislature. On its own, the letter means nothing. The willingness of the Times – and those who followed its characteristically anti-Republican lead on the story – to jump on the lawyer’s vague hints about possible evidence illustrates the widespread desire of the liberal mainstream media to destroy Christie. But the blistering counter-attack from the governor’s office on Wildstein, his lawyer, and the Times tells us just as much about how much trouble Christie himself thinks he’s in today. By issuing a statement that dredges up every questionable incident in Wildstein’s life as proof of his lack of credibility, Christie’s office raised as many questions as it answered. After all, if Wildstein is as bad a character as Christie now claims, how is it that the governor not only wanted him as a friend but also gave him one of the most choicest patronage plums available for Christie to bestow? However justified the governor’s denunciation of Wildstein may now be, the desperate nature of this counter-attack may be a sign that Christie knows this struggle isn’t about the presidency but his ability to serve out the remainder of his term in Trenton. The cascade of negative stories about Christie that Bridgegate has unleashed seemed to be creating a death-by-a-thousand-cuts scenario that liberals could use to take down a political foe. By forcing the governor and his defenders to respond not only to the allegations of responsibility for the bridge lane closings but also accusations that he had wrongly withheld Hurricane Sandy aid dollars from cities with mayors who didn’t play political ball B�H

with his administration, such as Hoboken’s Dawn Zimmer, Christie’s political future would appear to be destroyed even if none of the charges turned out to be true. But the letter from Wildstein’s lawyer raises the possibility that there may be evidence that Christie lied about the bridge even after the scandal broke in January. If so, you can forget about the discussions about whether Christie can recover in time to run in 2016 or even if he should remain as head of the Republican Governor’s Association. If true, Wildstein’s bid to evade accountability for his role in this mess could end by forcing Christie’s resignation. But even if Wildstein’s accusation comes up short on proof and Zimmer’s claim that she was blackmailed to agree to back a Hoboken project that would benefit another Christie crony also cannot be substantiated, Christie’s governorship has suffered a mortal wound. If he is lucky, he will spend the next four years fighting a rear-guard action to fend off claims that he knew about the bridge scheme, the alleged Hoboken shakedown, and every other possible problem that will emerge as a Democratic legislature, the U.S. attorney and their cheerleaders in the press put his administration under a microscope. If he isn’t lucky, his opponents will find one or more instances of direct ties between the governor and some misdeed that he can’t talk his way out of or be dismissed as partisan smears. In other words, whether he is guilty or not, his ability to govern New Jersey, let alone roam the country as a major political figure, may already be over.

A TASTE OF LOMDUS RABBI RAPHAEL FUCHS

Can A Non-Kohen Light The Menorah? This week’s parshah, Parshas Tetzaveh, briefly begins with the mitzvah of lighting the menorah. It is written in the pasuk that Aharon and his sons should ya’aroch (arrange) the menorah and its light. By mentioning Aharon and his sons it is implied in the pasuk that the menorah must be lit by a kohen. Additionally, in Parshas Beha’aloscha, it is stated in a pasuk that Hashem specifi cally commanded Aharon and his sons to light the menorah. Yet, interestingly, the Rambam writes in Hilchos Beis HaMikdash (9:7) that the menorah may be lit by anyone – including non-kohanim. Therefore, if a kohen prepares the wicks and brings the menorah outside the Kodesh, a non-kohen may light the menorah. The Rishonim (see the Raavad there, who contends that this is only allowed b’dieved, and Kesef Mishnah there, who cites a Ritva and the Tosafos Yeshanim in Yuma 24b) were bothered by this ruling. They questioned the Rambam from the abovementioned pesukim, which indicate that this could only be performed by a kohen. Rav Chaim Soloveitchik, zt”l, explains that according to the Rambam the lighting of the menorah was not part of the mitzvah. The mitzvah is that the lights should constantly remain lit. A kohen had to prepare the wicks and the oil, as that was an avodah, but lighting the fi re was not an avodah. The pesukim that indicate that a kohen must be ya’aroch the menorah were referring only to the preparation of the candles, not the actual lighting of them. Since the lighting of the candles was not part of the actual avodah, a non-kohen was permitted to light the candles. Regarding the mitzvah of the menorah, the Chinuch also says that the mitzvah is to have the lights remain lit. It is written in the sefer, Mikraei Kodesh, by Rav Tzvi Pesach Frank, zt”l, that the Imrei Emes (the Gerer Rebbe) asked Rav Chaim the following question: Since a midrash says that the ner ma’aravi was never extinguished, how did they fulfi ll the mitzvah of lighting the menorah? They should have extinguished it in order to fulfi ll the mitzvah by relighting it.

Hineni Super Singles Supperette For Ages 40 +

The Imrei Emes suggested that it is written in Maseches Shabbos that adding oil to a lamp is a violation of the melachah of mavir (lighting a fi re). The midrash does not say that a miracle similar to that of Chanukah occurred in which the ner ma’aravi replenished its oil supply. So perhaps they added oil to the ner ma’aravi, constituting a havarah. This is not a simple answer, for one could argue that although it is considered a havarah, it is nevertheless not a hadlakah (lighting). Based on the above explanation, Rav Chaim answered that there is no mitzvah to light the menorah per se. The mitzvah is that the light should remain burning, which it did. The sefer, Hararei Kedem, asks the following question pertaining to the Rambam’s view: When the Rambam wished to give an example of how a non-kohen could light the menorah, why did he have to say that a kohen took the menorah outside of the Kodesh? Why could the Rambam have not said that a non-kohen happened to be fi xing something inside the Kodesh? It is stated in Hararei Kedem that the Rambam understood that the mitzvah of the menorah in the

Beis HaMikdash was not to light the menorah but rather to place down a lit menorah; in other words, hanachah oseh mitzvah. But one need not actually put down the menorah, for merely lighting it in its place served as actually placing the menorah. Thus, if a kohen was to bring the menorah outside of the Kodesh and a non-kohen would light it there, the kohen is performing the hanachah when the kohen brings the menorah back inside the Kodesh. This hanachah must be performed specifi cally by a kohen, as that is the mitzvah that the pesukim refer to when they indicate that the mitzvah must be performed by a kohen. However, if a non-kohen were to light the menorah in the Kodesh, that would be the hanachah. Since the hanachah must be performed by a kohen, a non-kohen would not be allowed to light the menorah inside the Kodesh. Hence the Rambam had to describe a scenario whereby the menorah was removed outside of the Kodesh so that a non-kohen could light it. For questions or comments, e-mail RabbiRFuchs@gmail.com.

New York’s Mayors, Israel’s Defenders By Daniel Treiman

New York City’s new mayor, Bill de Blasio, drew some attention last week with his remarks at an American Israel Public Affairs Committee event. “Part of my job description is to be a defender of Israel,” de Blasio said. De Blasio isn’t the first New York City mayor to see the job this way. New York City mayors have been outspoken defenders of Israel since its establishment – and of the Zionist cause even before that. They have visited Israel, called for American aid, opposed arms sales to Israel’s enemies, snubbed visiting foreign leaders who were hostile to Israel, and criticized U.S. presidents on Israel-related issues. To be sure, there has been plenty of ceremony, symbolism and sound bites, the pro forma pronouncements of New York City politicos. Fiorello La Guardia But some mayors have gone further, engaging in substantive and passionate pro-Israel advocacy. In 1938, Fiorello La Guardia – de Blasio’s favorite mayor – warned Britain not to back away from promises of a Jewish homeland in Palestine. “This is no time for England to monkey with her honor,” La Guardia said. (He had dispensed with prepared materials that the Emergency Committee on Palestine had provided to him, describing them as “too diplomatic.”) Mayor William O’Dwyer, who led the city at the time of IsRudy Giuliani rael’s independence, campaigned in 1948 for a strongly pro-Israel plank in the Democratic Party’s platform. The next year, he urged support for Israel – a “new nation carved out of chaos by the spirit of love and human respect” – and dismissed calls for Jerusalem’s internationalization as “poppycock.” O’Dwyer’s successor, Mayor Vincent Impellitteri,

called on Congress to aid Israel in 1951. Later that year, Impellitteri visited the Jewish state, where he was hailed by Jerusalem’s mayor as “one of Israel’s staunchest friends.” Mayor Robert Wagner also paid a visit to Israel and urged the United States to send arms to Israel. In 1957, he told a Jewish National Fund dinner that he would give the cold shoulder to Saudi Arabia’s King Saud on his visit to New York. That snub was condemned by U.S. Secretary of State John Dulles, criticism that Wagner called “ridiculous.” Mayor John Lindsay – like de Blasio, a tall liberal – followed Wagner’s lead in snubbing foreign leaders who were unfriendly to Israel. In 1966 he canceled a dinner for Saudi Arabia’s new king, Faisal, after the monarch had made anti-Israel and anti-Jewish remarks, a move that led one Arab activist to call New York “Tel Aviv of the Atlantic.” In 1970, Lindsay declined to give an official welcome to visiting French President Georges Pompidou amid controversy over France’s arms sales to Israel’s enemies. Lindsay also strongly criticized U.S. policies toward Israel. In 1970, he lambasted the Nixon administration for “encouraging the intransigence of Israel’s adversaries.” In 1972, he warned that the Vietnam War was undermining America’s commitment to Israel: “As we sank in the mire of Southeast Asia, we sapped our strength to guarantee peace Ed Koch on Israel’s borders.” That same year, Lindsay made his first visit as mayor to Israel. Lindsay’s successor and New York’s first publicly identified Jewish mayor, Abraham Beame (La Guardia’s mother was Jewish, though he was an Episcopalian), snubbed a visiting, pre-peacemaking Anwar Sadat, drawing criticism from the Ford administration. Beame later joined 15 other American mayors on a visit to Israel. Ed Koch was, of course, an outspoken supporter of Israel before, during and after his mayoralty. As mayor, he crit- Bill de Blasio

icized both President Carter and President Reagan for what he saw as their betrayals of Israel. David Dinkins, New York’s first black mayor (and de Blasio’s former boss), continued the mayoral tradition of participating in pro-Israel rallies and visiting the Jewish state, though he was critical of Israel’s ties with apartheid South Africa. Mayor Rudolph Giuliani in 1995 had Yasir Arafat booted from a city-sponsored concert, even as the John Lindsay PLO leader was meeting with American Jewish leaders on the same visit. De Blasio’s predecessor, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, also spoke up for Israel. On a 2009 solidarity visit to Sderot, the rocket-battered southern Israeli town that de Blasio has also visited, Bloomberg experienced the town’s plight firsthand: He was rushed to a protected room after a rocket was fired from Gaza. “I think intellectually I understood what the people of Sderot were going through, but this time it’s more etched in my memory and more personal than reading about it or seeing it on television,” Bloomberg said.

Addressing the annual Al-Quds Day rally in August, Elias Hazineh, former president of Palestine House in suburban Toronto, called for “an ultimatum” to Israelis: “You have to leave Jerusalem. You have to leave Palestine…. We give them two minutes and then we start shooting. And that’s the only way they’ll understand.” B’nai Brith Canada and the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs asked police to investigate Hazineh for possible hate crimes.

Offenses of this nature have to be approved by Ontario’s attorney general. On Jan. 30, police informed the complainants that no charges would be brought against Hazineh. “We are disappointed by the decision not to confront hatred on the streets of Toronto,” Frank Dimant, B’nai Brith Canada’s CEO, said in a statement. “It seems that we have sadly grown accustomed to hearing hateful rhetoric spewed at these pro-Iranian regime, anti-Israel events.” Anita Bromberg, national director of legal affairs at B’nai Brith Canada, said hate crimes prosecutions in Ontario hinge on two legal criteria: whether

a charge would be in the “public interest” and the chance of a successful prosecution. Hazineh later said his comments were not meant to be taken literally. “I made a comment that when somebody robs a bank, the cops don’t negotiate for 45 years,” he told the Jerusalem Post on Aug. 11, a week after his public speech. “They come and they say, ‘Listen, drop your gun, come out with your hands up, or you’re dead.’ This is not an actual threat to move there and shoot people. This is not what I said nor did I mean it this way.” (JTA)

Jewish Agricultural Colonies In America (Part I) Introduction (All quotes in this section are from “Jewish Agricultural Colonies in the United States” by Leo Shpall, Agricultural History, 24, 1950, page 121.) There were very few Jewish farmers in Europe during the seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Indeed, in many parts of Europe Jews were forbidden to own land. Despite this there were some Jews who always felt they should return to the agrarian way of life their forefathers had pursued in ancient times, and that America was an ideal place to establish Jewish agricultural colonies. “In 1819, William Davis Robinson printed and circulated a 40-page pamphlet in London entitled ‘Memoir Addressed to Persons of the Jewish Religion in Europe, on the Subject of Emigration to, and Settlement in, One of the Most Eligible Parts of the United States of North America.’ The object of the pamphlet was to induce wealthy European Jews to create a fund for the purchase of a large tract of land in the upper Mississippi and Missouri territory and found an agricultural settlement for poor Jews. “According to Robinson’s plan, each immigrant was to receive a number of acres of land on credit. It also called for the transportation of the immigrants to their places of settlement, assistance in buying the necessary implements, and the establishment of rules governing the reimbursement of the capital. Robinson was confident that the investment would eventually prove of great advantage and magnitude. The prevailing opinion was that the entire project was designed to induce English Jews to buy land through Robinson’s mediation. Recent investigations prove, however, that it was a sincere attempt, but it received no response. “In 1820, Moses Elias Levy conceived a plan to establish an agricultural settlement in the United States, and he purchased a vast tract of land in Alachua County, Florida. He settled Jewish families from Delaware, New York, and New Jersey and some from Europe on the land and spent more than $18,000 building houses and supplying the settlers with agricultural implements. By 1823, more than fifty persons were settled on the land. Levy had agents publicizing the project and praising the fertility of the soil. The project, however, was short lived as many immigrants hesitated to settle there because of lack of proper accommodations.” In 1837 an agricultural colony named Sholom was founded at Wawarsing (Warwarsing) in Ulster County, New York. Under the leadership of Moses Cohen, some thirteen Jewish families settled there. “The land was divided into lots of 5 acres each, and a site was selected for a village. Contracts were awarded to build houses at a cost of $400 each. The settlers requested the Congregation Anshe Chesed of New York to loan them a Sefer Torah until they could secure one from Europe, and they also asked for lamps for their synagogue. “The newcomers cleared the land and built roads. For five years they tried to make farming pay, but circumstances forced them to add to their earnings from the produce of the land by manufacturing and trading. Notwithstanding, the colony carried on. The climax, however, came when the factories in the neighborhood were shut down. After a few years of further struggling, the settlers found it impossible to continue. They sold their belongings in 1842 and moved away.” A Proposal by Julius Stern The first issue of Reverend Isaac Leeser’s periodical The Occident was published in April 1843.1 In it, a letter from Julius Stern, a resident of Philadelphia, appeared in which Stern stressed the necessity of settling Jews on land. Stern wrote: “Being convinced that the Israelites of Germany

do not enjoy the full privileges of citizens in our age, and that many causes operate to defer the attainment of this desirable object for a considerable time, I, some years ago, expressed a wish that a considerable number might emigrate to the United States and found a colony in some of the western territories. “A considerable number of our people has indeed come to this country, but without a common plan, without a fixed object to unite their interests; and every one, therefore, was obliged to rely upon himself. As many had not learned a trade, and a few only understanding agriculture, commerce was the only resource which they had left; but most of them being without the necessary means to be merchants in the proper sense of the word, they were obliged to become itinerant traders or peddlers, a business most troublesome, and, in the present scarcity of money, most unproductive and most onerous. Under these circumstances these people cannot possibly attain that happiness, for which their heart yearned when they were still in their native country.… “Not until we are able to earn a respectable and independent livelihood, and live without the corroding care of procuring our daily bread, shall we be able to rejoice for having emigrated from Europe, look

upon this land as a second fatherland, and cherish it from the core of our heart. But to attain this object it is requisite that the greater part of us should devote themselves to the pursuits of agriculture and the breeding of cattle, which occupations are the best props of every state, the safest means of securing to a family a happiness based upon a rock which can brave the storms of the times. “This object could be best accomplished, and would require comparatively little exertion and outlay of money, if a number of Israelites were to purchase a large tract of land in one of the western territories, where Congress disposes of the land at $1.25 per acre. On this tract a number of dwellings might be immediately erected for those who are not occupied in agriculture, in a place which would form the center of the first agricultural district. The farmers would of course live each on his farm. “In such a colony, the highest capacities of mind and heart, which, as every unprejudiced observer will confess, can readily be discovered in a large number of individuals of our nation, would be sooner and more rapidly developed than our present social life admits of, where so many circumstances unite to sti-

special mission in Benghazi was attacked Sept. 11, 2012.

Petraeus Warns Of ‘Nightmare’ Scenario At a conference in Tel Aviv last week, former CIA Director David Petraeus warned of a “nightmare” scenario in which missile proliferation could provide terrorists the capability to shoot down a civilian airliner. Petraeus didn’t mention that the largest terrorist looting of Man-Portable-Air-Defense-Systems, or MANPADS, took place immediately after the U.S.-NATO military campaign that helped to end Muammar Khaddafi’s rule in Libya. Khaddafi had hoarded Africa’s biggest known reserve of MANPADS, with his stock said to number between 15,000 and 20,000. Many of the missiles were stolen by militias fighting in Libya, including those backed by the U.S. in their anti-Khaddafi efforts. Petraeus made his remarks about MANPADS at the annual conference of the Institute for National Security Studies, a think tank at Tel Aviv University. He referred to a video posted on YouTube by the Sinai-based Ansar Jerusalem jihadist group, which claimed it had fired a surface-to-air missile at an Egyptian helicopter. “I mean, shooting down a helicopter with an apparent shoulder-fired missile is a big deal,” Petraeus said. “As you know, that was always our worst nightmare, that a civilian airliner would be shot down by one. Which is why we were so concerned when they moved around,” he said. The MANPADS didn’t just “move around,” though. Thousands were looted when Khaddafi’s reserves were unprotected following the NATO campaign there in 2011. At the time, CBS News reported the U.S. was unable to secure “thousands” of MANPADS. CBS quoted a “well-placed source” divulging that hundreds of missiles were tracked going to Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, AQIM, the Al Qaeda franchise based in Algeria that is now considered to be one of the gravest threats to the U.S. In a largely unnoticed speech to a think tank seven months before the Benghazi attack, a top State Department official described an unprecedented multi-million-dollar U.S. effort to secure the MANPADS. He said the efforts were taking place in Benghazi, where a leading U.S. expert was deployed. The official, Andrew J. Shapiro, assistant secretary of state for the Bureau of Political-Military Affairs, explained that U.S. experts were fully coordinating the collection efforts with the Libyan opposition. Shapiro conceded that the Western-backed rebels did not want to give up the weapons, particularly MANPADS, which were the focus of the weapons collection efforts. The information may shed light on why the U.S. Aaron Klein is Jerusalem bureau chief and senior reporter for WorldNetDaily.com. He is also host of an investigative radio program on New York’s 770WABC Radio, the largest talk radio station in the U.S., every Sunday between 7-9 p.m. His website is KleinOnline.com.

Has The Pot Been Assigned To Call The Kettle Black? Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker, who recently was named to a new presidential panel to review the government’s handling of “big data” stored at National Security Agency databases, has a history of her own tied to investigating the personal lives of other people. That’s because she is a primary funder of the Media Matters for America progressive activist group, which previously declared “war” on Fox News and reportedly sought to look into the personal lives of journalists. In 2012, Media Matters found itself in hot water after the Daily Caller exposed the group’s purported illicit tactics, including compiling a de facto enemies list and reportedly seeking to investigate reporters and news personalities. The Daily Caller reported it obtained internal memos from Media Matters that revealed the group employed an “opposition research team” to “target its political enemies.” Reported the Daily Caller: “Included in the list of targets are right-leaning websites, conservative think tanks, prominent financiers and donors, and more than a dozen specific Fox News Channel and News Corporation employees.” One memo reportedly stated that Media Matters investigations “will focus on the backgrounds, connections, operations and political and financial activities of the individuals.” This information came amid reports White House staffers held regular meetings and even a weekly conference call with Media Matters. The Media Matters donor list includes the Pritzker Family Foundation, which donated a total of $400,000 to the progressive attack group in 2007, 2008 and 2009. The family foundation is directed by Penny Pritzker. Senate Confirms Muhammad Jamal Network’s Involvement In Benghazi Attack A Senate investigation confirmed for the first time that an Egyptian organization participated in the deadly attack on the U.S. special mission and nearby CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya. The 88-page Senate report states that “individuals affiliated with terrorist groups, including … the Mohammad Jamal Network, participated in the September 11, 2012, attacks.” Until now, the U.S. government has not connected the Egypt-based Jamal Network with the Benghazi attack. In October 2013, the State Department declared the Muhammad Jamal Network an official terrorist organization. However, the agency’s indictment of the group and its leader, Muhammad Jamal, doesn’t mention Benghazi. The State Department document says “Jamal formed the MJN after his release from Egyptian prison in 2011 and established several terrorist training camps in Egypt and Libya.” The United Nations, meanwhile, has accused Jamal of participating in the attack. A UN Security Council resolution issued in October 2013 added the Jamal Network to its list of Al Qaeda groups. Unlike the State Department description, the UN resolution details Jamal’s alleged involvement in the attack on the U.S. special mission and nearby CIA annex.

New York Senate Passes Anti-Boycott Bill The New York State Senate last week approved a bill that would suspend funding to educational institutions which fund groups that boycott Israel. The legislation approved in a 56-4 vote bans state funding to colleges that fund organizations boycotting “countries that host higher education institutions chartered by the Board of Regents of the University of the State of New York.” A number of New York-based universities have Israel branches. The bill does not mention Israel, but its sponsor, state Sen. Jeffrey Klein, made clear that academic

boycotts of Israel were what led him to introduce the legislation. “I will not allow the enemies of Israel or the Jewish people to gain an inch in New York,” said Klein, a Democrat representing the Bronx and Westchester County. “The First Amendment protects every organization’s right to speak, but it never requires taxpayers to foot the bill.” A similar bill introduced in the state Assembly by Speaker Sheldon Silver has 48 sponsors among the chamber’s 150 members.

Be Fair To The Settlers he settlers’ share in srael’s security in blood and money is greater than that of any other sector in Israel’s population. As is widely known, there are a disproportionately large number of soldiers from the settlements ghting in combat and elite units hat is less idely known is that the settlers are the most economically productive sector in Israel; they are the true

middle-class. As such, their share in taxes paid to the state, which trickle down to the military budget, is proportionately the highest in Israel. he idea of abandoning them to the murderous hordes of the PLO and Hamas is evil and cruel. But if someone seriously intends to do this, it is only right that the settlers’ proportional part in the IDF be left in their hands gi ing them the ability to defend themselves. he main obligation according to some, the only obligation) of a state toward its citizen is to provide them with security. If the state of Israel is incapable of upholding its basic contract with its citizens in udea and Samaria, that is ne ut ust as there is a price tag attached to a couple when they decide to divorce, so too is a price tag attached to a state when it chooses to opt out of its basic contract with its citi ens hat price tag the state cannot lea e ith all of its shared assets he settlers, ho la fully built their homes and paid with their taxes and lives in order to receive promised security from their state, deserve to have their investments returned. he settlers should ma e this case to the state ou want to leave? No problem. Just return everything that you have taken from us, the things that helped you provide us with your basic commitment to us: security. Give us the weapons that were bought with our tax dollars so that we will be able to defend ourselves. Anybody who thought that we could prevent Israeli retreats ith con incing and lo e or ith demonstrations and a determined struggle must understand that those methods ill not or here is one ay to prevent retreat and to change direction: to rule. It is time to understand that he who rules makes the rules.

BUSINESS IN HALACHA RABBI MEIR ORLIAN

Handing It Over BUSINESS At the conclusion of who put it down next to HALACHA a IN morning class, Moshe him. turned to his classmate RABBI MEIR ORLIAN Yossi. “I’m heading to a cousin’s bris and then going shopping,” he said. “Could you take my backpack home with you? I’ve got a new laptop in it. “ “No problem,” said Yossi, taking the backpack. During lunch break, Yossi met with some friends in the park. While they were eating, his father called, saying he was stuck with the car and needed help. “I’ve got to run,” Yossi said to his friends. He turned to Nachman, who lived a few doors away from him. “Someone asked me to watch his backpack, with a laptop inside,” he said. “Can you please take it home? I’ll pick it up in the evening.” “Sure,” said Nachman. “Give it to me.” Yossi handed the backpack to Nachman,

While the group was sittingestoringthere, someone the rimacy of hoshen Mishpat came from behind Nachman. He grabbed the bac pac and ed hey jumped up and began to chase him, but the thief hopped on a bicycle and got away. In the evening, Yossi came to collect the backpack. “I’m sorry, but a thief came and stole it,” Nachman related. “You can ask the rest of the group; they witnessed it with their own eyes.” “You’re kidding!” exclaimed Yossi. “What am I going to tell Moshe?” “You were an unpaid guardian [shomer chinam] and so was I,” replied Nachman. “Just say that an unpaid guardian is exempt from theft [C.M. 291:1]. Sorry about the loss, but there’s nothing to do.” Yossi called Moshe. “Real sorry about the backpack,” he apologized.

the protector of the fruit, for without it the delicate fruit would not survive. The various components of the vine are indeed similar to their corresponding features in a human being, who cannot survive without the lungs and the various organs that support, protect and sustain life. Judaism has always valued every Jew, regardless of station. All Jews are required to assemble once every seven years during the festival of Sukkos, from the wood chopper to the water drawer (Devarim 31:11). Hakhel was not limited to the intellectual or wealthy elites. The covenant that Hashem forged with Moshe on behalf of the Jewish people includes every Jew. The Gemara mentions that the grape clusters refer to Moshe and Aharon, the paradigm of what a Jew can be. However, while it is important to treat the scholars like Moshe and Aharon with proper respect, one must not diminish the dignity of other jews who are not at that level. Without these Jews, the scholar could not reach his level. Rashi (Chulin ibid) notes that the common people are critical to the system as they or the elds and provide the food and basic materials that the scholars require. The schiolar must never make demands on the community, the other components of the vineyard, and become a pose’ah al roshei am kodesh, one who treads on the heads of the holy nation (Sota 39a). For example, a scholar should not expect or take pride in the

The articles in this column are transcriptions and adaptations of shiurim by Rav Joseph Ber Soloveitchik, zt”l. The Rav’s unique perspective on Chumash permeated many of the shiurim and lectures he presented at various venues over a 40 plus year period. His words add an important perspective that makes the Chumash in particular, and our tradition in general, vibrant and relevant to our generation. The Gemara (Chulin 92a) compares different segments of knesses Yisrael to components of a vineyard. This is consistent with the Torah comparing man to a tree (Devarim 20:19). Rav Shimon ben Lakish comments that the branches of the vine represent the baalei batim, a term that Rashi explains to mean the people who are involved in the various core community institutions, such as charity organizations. The scholars are compared to the grape clusters, the core fruit of the vine. The simple people (amei ha’aretz) are compared to the leaves of the vine, which provide shade and protect the fruit and the vine. Each of these aspects of the vineyard are critical, as the fruit in particular and the vine in general cannot survive without any of them. The leaves of the vine, like the peel that surrounds the fruit, is referred to as shomer l’pri,

Continued from p.18 honor accorded him when others stand up for him when he enters a room. The Rav related a story of Rabbi Akiva Eiger, the scholar par excellence of his time, who traveled for the rst time to the city of ins , ithuania for the wedding of his son. When he arrived, the people of the city unhitched the horses from his wagon and carried his carriage into the city as a sign of honor. Rabbi Akiva Eiger wept quietly and recited the confessional prayer; he was bewildered as to how he could have come to a situation of treading on the heads of the holy Jewish people. While there is an obligation on the rest of the community to honor the scholar, the scholar must be very careful never to take it for granted and to be mindful of the dignity of the Jewish people. (Note, a similar idea can be seen in Parshas Yisro, where Yisro rebuked Moshe for making the people stand all day while he sat in judgement. Rashi notes that Yisro rebuked Moshe for apparently taking lightly the dignity of the holy people, Shemos 18:13). The Torah tells us that Hashem spoke with Moshe from various places. These included the Holy of Holies between the Cherubim, by the altar of the burnt offerring (mizbach ha’olah) and in the courtyard of the Ohel Moed. In this week’s parshah, Parshas Tetzaveh, Hashem tells Moshe that he will meet with them, i.e. bnei Yisrael, regularly (Shemos 29:43). All the meetings and conversations between Hashem and Moshe were for the sake

of the e ish eople f there ould be no bnei Yisrael, there would be no need for Moshe. i e ise, ashi comments that Hashem told Moshe to descend from the mountain after the people sinned with the golden calf because the only reason he was granted higher status is for the Jewish people. Now that they have sinned and were about to be rejected, there would be no reason for Moshe to continue to enjoy that status (Shemos 32:7). According to Rashi, for Moshe to be the intermediary for regular meetings between Hashem and knesses Yisrael, Moshe could not separate himself and remain aloof from the people. Had he chosen to be an elitist and isolate himself in the Holy of Holies, away from the rest of knesses Yisrael, he would have been like the fruit without the branches or the protecting leaves of the vine. He would lose his connection to the rest of bnei Yisrael and could not represent them. Only by standing outside of the Holy of Holies could he maintain his critical role as that link between Hashem and the people, to hear the voice that emanated from between the Cherubim on behalf of all of bnei Yisrael. Rabbi Joshua Rapps attended the Rav’s shiur at RIETS from 1977 through 1981 and is a musmach of Yeshivas Rabbeinu Yitzchak Elchanan. He and his wife Tzipporah live in Edison, N.J. Rabbi Rapps originally distributed this and other shiurim of the Rav’s via the Internet (mj-ravtorah@shamash. org). Rabbi Rapps wishes to acknowledge Rabbi Dr. Israel Rivkin for his assistance.

Touro Community Remembers Dr. Bernard Lander On Fourth Yahrzeit The Touro College community gathered at Yeshivas Ohr Hachaim on motzaei Shabbos, Jan. 25, to commemorate the fourth yahrzeit of Rabbi Dr. Bernard Lander, founder and first president of the Touro College and University System. Dr. Lander was a scholar and community leader whose great strides and foresight in the arena of education allowed Touro to become the venerable and successful institution it is today, with 32 schools in five countries. For the better part of seven decades, Dr. Lander met and advised mayors, governors and presidents. Of his countless accomplishments, he had said that he was most proud that not only did he provide opportunities for those who lacked, but that he was able to create institutions that strengthened the learning of Torah. Featured speaker Rabbi Nosson Scherman, the general editor of Artscroll/Mesorah Publishing, discussed a story in Bereishis to illustrate the accomplishments of Dr. Lander. He said that when Pharaoh asked Yaakov Avinu how old he was, the 130-year-old Yaakov answered, “Few and bad have

been the days of the years of my life and they have Rabbi Scherman during his speech entitled “Dr. not reached the life spans of my fathers.” Rab- Lander: A Man Shaping an Era.” bi Scherman said that according to Rabbi Shimshon Raphael Hirsch, Yaakov responded in this way to demonstrate that even one who has lived for many years may not have many days in his life in which he’s made a difference. “Every day of his life mattered to Yaakov Avinu,” he said. “Rabbi Dov Baer Lander lived every day of his life, a long, long life, and to the last day he was dreaming and thinking and planning and doing and building and accomplishing. No day was wasted.” Rabbi Scherman noted that Dr. Lander established Touro so that the Jewish community could operate within the secular world without having to sacrifice its Yiddishkeit. “He was here to provide Jewish men and women with a dignified parnassah so that Dr. Bernard Lander they could remain shomrei Torah and mitzvoth without compromise. That was his goal,” said Rabbi Doniel Lander, rosh yeshiva of Yeshivas Ohr Hachaim and Dr. Lander’s son, spoke about the principles involved in the verse “Im kesef talveh…” (“If you should lend money…”), which was read from Parshas Mishpatim the morning of the commemoration. He said that lending money is considered a greater form of chesed than tzedakah because it spares the poor person from embarrassment. The Torah, he said, is teaching a lesson that the true mitzvah is not in the amount of money one gives to a poor person, but rather the rachamim that motivates him in the first place. Rabbi Lander said that it was that rachamim that pushed his father to create Touro. “My father, alav hashalom, devoted his life to the needs of klal Yisrael,” he said. “Although he was a very generous man personally, his greatest form of tzedakah was to offer the gift of dignity to thousands of mishpachos that could not obtain parnassah in the system before the establishment of Touro.” Rabbi Lander recounted a story about his father: several years ago Dr. Lander met a Jewish man while he was on a trip to Moscow. They talked for some time and at the end of the conversation Dr. Lander asked the man to call him when he came to the U.S. Fifteen years later the man approached him, and Dr. Lander immediately asked why he never called. “This is not simply to say that my father had a good memory, although he did,” said Rabbi Lander. “But it was because he cared. This fellow needed his chesed and my father cared about him.” To commemorate Dr. Lander’s third yahrzeit a year ago, Touro released Dr. Lander’s biography, The Lander Legacy: The Life Story of Rabbi Dr. Bernard Lander, by Peter Weisz (Ktav Publishing House, Inc.). The book begins with the story of David and Goldie Lander, both European immigrants to the U.S. The book describes the Touro founder’s early years as a young rabbi in Baltimore, his numerous accomplishments and the experiences which convinced him of the need to create great yeshivas and academic institutions under Jewish auspices. Rabbi Moshe Krupka, executive vice president of Touro College, said that Haman wanted to destroy the Jewish people in the month of Adar because it is a time of hester panim. Rabbi Krupka quoted Rabbi Gedaliah Schorr, who said that Haman did not realize that there are certain shepherds in every generation who see the adversity and who then motivate klal Yisrael and bring about a salvation. “This evening we are here to remember such an individual who saw choshech and brought light to klal Yisrael,” he said. At the time of his passing in 2010, Dr. Lander had achieved more in one lifetime than most could in ten. While advocating for and working on behalf of klal Yisrael, he was able to impact on so many diverse communities, cultures and causes across New York and the country. He helped Touro evolve from a tiny school with 35 students in the first graduating class to a flourishing international institution serving over 19,000 students worldwide. At the start of the evening Moshe Lander, Dr. Lander’s grandson, made a siyum on Masechet Yevamos as a tribute to his grandfather.

While inpatient volume go down s grown, making the develpatient care center all the npatients can be better acexisting hospital building. nd other medical providers between the outpatient and so allow patients to access ess and convenient manner, be located within the NYM campus. The site currently consists of a physician parking lot and a number of low-rise buildings, owned by NYM. I am told that the proposed new building is expected to house: • An outpatient surgery center, with 12 operating rooms for sameday surgery; • A new endoscopy suite with six special procedure rooms; • A cancer center of excellence that would include both radiation oncology and chemotherapy; • Diagnostic radiology services;

• Institutes for Neurosciences, Orthopedic Medicine and Surgery, Women’s Health and Cancer Care; • An after-hours urgent care center; • Support spaces (central sterile, patient waiting areas, etc.). Some of these speci c programs could change as plans are nalized, because healthcare is continually changing. But the central idea – to develop a modern healthcare facility that meets the needs of our borough – will remain the hospital’s goal. For the past six months, I have watched the hospital engage in an unusually open community process with Community Board 6, the Park Slope Civic Council, elected of cials, community leaders and hundreds of community residents. Some community residents asked why, instead of building a new building, New York Methodist couldn’t just take over one of the Brooklyn hospitals currently in danger of closing. The notion that many problems could be solved by having NYM take over a failing Brooklyn hospital is appealing but, unfortunately, flawed. For a hospital outpatient center to function ef ciently and appropriately, it must be on or immediately adjacent to the hospital campus. And, the buildings of the suggested hospitals were built many years ago for inpatient use. I’m told that it would be prohibitively expensive to acquire these buildings and convert them for outpatient use. Along with my colleagues at NYM, I was very pleased with the recent vote of Community Board 6 to recommend to the City’s Board of Standards and Appeals that the hospital be granted the variances necessary to build the project. I am delighted that the expansion of New York Methodist Hospital to create a better experience for both inpatients, who will benet from space made available in the current buildings and outpatients, who will bene t from the most upto-date medical procedures in a comfortable, modern space, has received this support from the community. Rabbi Shimon Hecht is hospital chaplain at New York Methodist Hospital.

RABBI J. B. SOLOVEITCHIK, ZT”L FROM A LECTURE SERIES BY RABBI AHARON ZIEGLER

on Wednesday, one feels that the week is turning; it is now moving towards Shabbat. By Thursday morning, the anticipation of Shabbat builds,

many Shabbat preparations as possible. By doing that, we pull Shabbat into the week. This idea is not new, having already been introduced by Shammai and Hillel. As the Gemara (Beitzah 16a) relates, if Shammai came across a delicacy early in the week, he would set it aside for Shabbat. If he came across an even greater delicacy later in the week, he would set it aside for Shabbat item on a regular day. He thus considered even his weekday meals to be in honor of Shabbat. Hillel, on the other hand, would eat whatever came into

Being A ‘Shomer Erev Shabbat’ Rav Soloveitchik often said that America has many shomrei Shabbat Jews but not many shomrei Erev Shabbat Jews. Rav Soloveitchik depicted a typical American scene of a Jew working on Friday until the very last moment. He rushes home, arriving 15 minutes before candle-lighting time, heads into the shower, jumps into the car, and speeds to shul just in time for the beginning of Minchah. This is not Shabbat! Kedushah requires preparation. To be a shomer Erev Shabbat Jew means one does not leave Shabbat preparations for the last minute, which often results in outbursts of anger, frustration, or tension that engulf many homes in the hours or minutes before candle-lighting time. It means one sets the Shabbat table on Thursday night or leaves work on Friday afternoon an hour earlier than is strictly necessary. It means going shopping for non-perishable Shabbat foods on Sunday, almost as soon as Shabbat is over. Being a shomer Erev Shabbat Jew requires an entire change in mindset. It means feeling that the week is divided in half so that with the recitation pesukim of Lechu Neranenah at the end of the Shir Shel Yom

ting delicacy for Shabbat at the end of the week. In our era, we need not worry like Hillel and Shamai. Any imaginable delicacy for Shabbat is available to us at any time at a price affordable to practically anyone. The examples of Hillel and Shammai, however, still teach us that our weekday focus should be on Shabbat. If it is, and we act accordingly, our Erev Shabbat can be one of serenity and tranquility, almost a part of Shabbat itself.

For many people, the idea of estate planning seems a little off-putting or taboo. Estate planning is simply the process of getting your affairs in order so that you make things easier for your surviving family members when the time comes t doesn’t ha e to be dif cult, expensive, or depressing. All you need to do is take a few simple steps: take a look at what you own, write a will and a few other documents, and re ie the bene ciary designations on your retirement/insurance accounts. Estate planning is something you do for your family. Get it done, and you’ll feel better knowing that you’ve taken care of them. Estate planning is also about practical issues. After you pass on, many of the tasks and decisions your loved ones will have to handle usually aren’t covered by the estate planning documents that are left behind. You can save your family some headache by making your wishes known on these issues: • ho should be noti ed of your death? • Did you prepare a ill or li ing trust? Where did you keep them? • Do you o n a life insurance policy, pension, annuity, or retirement account? Where are the documents stored? Do you ha e ban accounts Do you have a safe deposit box? Do you o n stoc s, bonds, or money in mutual funds? Where are the records? Do you o n real estate here are the deeds? Most of us carry this information

around in our heads and never discuss it with our family members in a comprehensive way, which causes our loved ones to have to sort it all out after a death. The key is to avoid unnecessary losses. Costly or painful losses can result from a failure to organize your affairs. Stocks, bonds, bank accounts, real estate, and insurance policy bene ts may go unclaimed and be turned over to the state government. This happens surprisingly often. Each year, millions of dollars go into state treasuries because the rightful property owners couldn’t be found. On a more personal level, relatives or friends may not be promptly informed of a death, and valuable pieces of family history may not be passed down to future generations. Fortunately, losses like these can be avoided with a little bit of planning, sorting, and organizing. Therefore, it is important to organize your information so that it is readily accessible at the time of your death. Making things easier for your family is not dif cult, but it may be time-consuming. It’s best to break the task into manageable sections and take it one step at a time. Start by thinking about some broad categories of information: Funeral plans (arrangements and whom to notify; do you want to be buried in Israel?); Insurance policies; Wills, living trusts, deeds, and other important documents; Pensions and re-

REBBETZIN’S VIEWPOINT REBBETZIN ESTHER JUNGREIS

RABBI JONATHAN Sadly, her situation is not an isolated one. In our troubled society we see such occurrences again and again.

Dear Rebbetzin Jungreis, Every week I receive e-mails from Hineni on the parshah and print them out before Shabbos so that my children and guests can read and discuss them during the Shabbos meals. I particularly appreciate the insights of your son Rabbi Jungreis but was jarred when I read his column on Mishpatim, in which the laws of the Hebrew slave are mentioned. When speaking of a Hebrew slave, the Torah is referring to a common thief who is unable to make restitution for his crime. In ancient Israel there were no jails; instead, a family would take in such a person in order to rehabilitate him and help him live an honorable Torah life. The law demands that he as well as his family be taken in, treated with dignity, and given the wherewithal to start a new life. The lesson is obvious. If a common criminal must be treated with such dignity and respect, how much more so must we relate with respect to all our fellow men and give everyone another chance? So what was it that jarred me about that parshah column? It was the concept of a second chance. A year and half ago my daughter met a man. She fell head over heels for him. She was 28 at the time. Most of her friends were already married. From the time she graduated college she was always the bridesmaid, never the bride, though she’s a beautiful girl who involvers herself with communal tzedakah and chesed activities. So you can imagine how thrilled I was for her when she told me she’d met the man for her. There was only one problem. “Mom,” she said, “he was married once before, though brie y t didn’t or out hey ere both very young at the time and thankfully there were no children.” I was a little surprised, but in today’s world hearing that someone has been divorced does not have the same connotations it did when I was growing up. I told my daughter I believed in second chances but that she should get to know him better before making a long-lasting commitment. She took my advice. There was no rush. Seven months later he proposed and she was ecstatic. Suddenly, though, as lled ith trepidation When my good friend called to wish me a mazel tov, I broke down. “I don’t know what’s wrong with me,” I said. “I davened for this, and now that it’s happened I’m so worried.” My friend told me it was normal to have these feelings and that when the shock wore off I’d be happy and busy planning a wedding. She was right about one of her predictions. I was busy. But I was

Rebbetzin Continued from p.30 not happy. Slowly reports started coming in. People who never speak a word of lashon hara were asking me if I really knew the man’s family. Others were telling me to examine his background. I didn’t know what to do. Nevertheless, in my efforts to be fair I kept telling myself, as I’d told my daughter, that everyone deserves a second chance. My daughter was happy. I could not ask for anything more. I didn’t want to destroy her spirits. We booked a major hotel for a big wedding. We hired an orchestra and a florist. We had gowns made for my daughter and her bridesmaids. Tuxedos were bought for the two little boys who were to carry the rings. A caterer was hired. Deposits were sent to all the vendors. The invitations went out in the mail. But the whispers about my prospective son-in-law continued, though now I was hearing specific things. What was I to do? How was I, a widow without anyone to help me, supposed to act now that I had more troubling information not only about the young man but about his family as well? How could I tell this to my daughter without devastating her? On the other hand, how could I keep quiet and see her embark upon a possibly suicidal course? Was my desire to see my daughter married and have her give me grandchildren more important to me than finding out the truth about her man? Meanwhile, the wheels were in motion. The responses to the invitations were coming in. The wedding was just weeks away. Finally I decided I had to act. I picked up the phone and called the family of this man’s first wife. The negative reports I’d already heard were nothing compared to what I was now hearing. I did some further checking and learned that what the family told me was factual. I had to let my daughter know. I braced myself for what I knew would be a difficult, perhaps heartbreaking, encounter. (includes garage, porches and attic) “Sweetheart,” I said, “I love you very much and want you to be happy. But I could never forgive myself if I didn’t tell you what I now know. I spoke with Mr. S., who as you know is a righteous and honorable man who would never speak ill about anyone. But when it comes to a shidduch, Jewish law dictates that you must tell the truth in order to avert disaster. He knows your dad is no longer here to protect Ganei HaEla has a range of homes from you and is genuinely concerned because the person 1,350 sq. ft to 3,688 sq. ft. you are about to marry is not the person you think he is.” But didn’t you tell me everyone deserves another chance?” my daughter cried out. “Yes,” I replied. “I did say that and I’m sorry, but this information is impossible to ignore.” To make a long story short, my daughter decided she would postpone the wedding. But with her decision to postpone came another reality that was more painful than anything I’d ever experienced. My little girl literally shut me out of her life. She wouldn’t talk to me. She wanted nothing to do with me. She started going to couples therapy with him. Every attempt I made to reach out to her was met with sadness and silence. Baruch Hashem, time is the great healer and my daughter has been getting over her hard feelings and we’ve begun to repair our relationship. But while I believe she is stronger and wiser for the experience, I no longer believe in second chances.

Sabbath Shuttle? (Part VI)

Question: Is it permitted on the Sabbath or holidays to take a shuttle to synagogue? The neighborhood shuttle runs from 9-5 daily, is driven by a gentile, has a designated stop schedule, and is free of charge. In my case, it would be very helpful as I have major difficulties walking the almost one-mile distance from my apartment to shul due to a medical condition known as peripheral artery disease. I am close to 80 years old. I live in the Bal Harbor area of Miami Beach, FL, and I know that many Orthodox Jews who live in high-rises use a Sabbath elevator or take regular elevators and allow someone else to press the button. Several people sit in wheelchairs (including a local Orthodox rabbi who is ill and cannot walk) and are wheeled to shul. I fail to see why taking the shuttle bedi’eved is different than taking a Sabbath elevator or being pushed in a wheelchair. Although I know I should ask my shul rabbi, I would appreciate hearing your opinion. Hershele L (Via E-Mail) Summary of our response up to this point: My uncle, Rabbi Sholom Klass, zt”l, discussed this matter many years ago based on a responsum of the Chatam Sofer, who addressed a query from a Jewish physician who had to travel on Shabbat to deliver a gentile baby. The Chatam Sofer noted that we are prohibited from riding an animal or in a coach on Shabbat because of the command to rest one’s animals on this day (Exodus 20:10). Furthermore, we might tear off a branch to use it as a whip. We are also prohibited from traveling more than 2,000 amot on Shabbat (Techum Shabbat). The Chatam Sofer argued, however, that these concerns don’t apply to the case at hand. The animal belonged to a gentile, not a Jew, and the doctor was asked to ride in the coach, not on the coachman’s seat (and so there was no concern that he would tear off a branch to use as a whip). Techum Shabbat is also not a problem because the wagon was higher than 10 tefachim, and the air above that height is considered a makom petur. Also, if the coach was 4 x 4 amot, it is a private domain. We are generally prohibited from telling a nonJew to violate Shabbat. But the doctor in this case was not asking for anything. As far as the rule about not violating Shabbat for non-Jews is concerned, the Chatam Sofer argued that it does not apply to our times when we dwell amongst gentiles. Because of darkei sholom, we must do everything to help them as we would our own. Thus the Chatam Sofer ruled that the doctor was permitted to attend to the non-Jewish patient on Shabbat. We considered the argument that being pushed in a wheelchair is comparable to riding in a shuttle on Shabbat. Shemirat Shabbat K’hilchatah (vol. 1, 34:27) states that a disabled person may be pushed in his wheelchair, or wheel himself, if the area he is in has an eruv. There is no problem of performing an uvdin d’chol (a weekday-like activity) or a concern of metaken kli shir (that one will fix the wheelchair on Shabbat if it breaks). Since this person cannot ambulate without a wheelchair, the wheelchair is considered an extension of his or her body. Thus, these concerns don’t apply. However, Rabbi Neuwirth notes that it is prohibited to use the motor of a motorized wheelchair on Rabbi Yaakov Klass, rav of Congregation K’hal Bnei Matisyahu in Flatbush, Brooklyn, is Torah Editor of The Jewish Press.

RABBI BI DOVID GOLDWASSER GOLDW

What A Shame! “You, Son of Man! Tell Bnei Yisrael about the Beis HaMikdash, and let them be ashamed of their iniquities and calculate the design of the Beis HaMikdash” – Yechezkel 43:10 The haftarah of Parshas Tetzaveh declares that if the Jewish nation is shamed by what they have done, then let them know the structure and the design of the Second Beis HaMikdash, its exits, its entrances, the buildings, its halachos, its teachings. Write it down before their eyes so that they will guard its form and its rules, and they will fulfill them. Metzudas Dovid explains that when the Jewish nation would be told about the Second Beis HaMIkdash they would recall the First Beis HaMIkdash that had been destroyed because of their aveiros and they will be ashamed of the sins they committed. R’ Yechiel of Zhlotsov adds that the details of the Beis HaMikdash included the avodah, i.e. the korbanos that would atone for the sins of Bnei Yisrael. Had they not sinned there would be no need for sacrifices. The Malbim comments that shame is a prerequisite for teshuvah and atonement, as our sages tell us (Berachos 12b), “One who does an aveirah and is embarrassed is forgiven for all his sins.” The Ohr HaMeir tells us that each one of a person’s limbs has a counterpart in the various components of the Beis HaMikdash. Thus, when a person sins, its representative element within the Beis HaMIkdash is desecrated. The realization that the destruction of the Beis HaMikdash resulted because of the sins of all of Klal Yisrael resonates strongly and fosters feelings of shame and remorse because no one wants to feel personally responsible for such ruination. This is the beginning of teshuvah. One has the capacity for an even deeper level of shame when he acknowledges his own shortcomings by conceding to his friend’s attributes. In effect, he loses his arrogance and recognizes that he has to reach higher. We learn that after the Mabul, Cham did a despicable act in humiliating his own father. Rav Bentzion Firer asks: In what merit was Cham saved in the first place? He observes that before the Flood there were other people in the world, which was a deterrent to doing something wrong, as there was a possibility of shame. However, after the Flood there was no one left but Cham’s family. Unfortunately, in front of family there is no shame. In homes where there is a lack of shalom bayis there is also no shame, and anything goes. At times people are deterred from acting improperly when they’re embarrassed of what others will say. Our sages derive (Nedarim 20a) that “It is a good sign if one is shamefaced,” and that “One who has shame will not be quick to sin.” The Talmud further tells

Sabbath. We argued, therefore, that riding in a vehicle on Shabbat should surely be forbidden. Rabbi Tuvia Goldstein, zt”l (Responsa Emek Halacha, vol. 1:26), quotes the Ben Ish Hai’s ruling permitting the use of a non-motorized bicycle on Shabbat in an area with an eruv. The Ben Ish Hai rejects the argument that riding a bike should be prohibited due to mar’it ha’ayin since mar’it ha’ayin only applies to cases where the action appears like a biblically prohibited act (e.g., eating meat with almond milk). Riding a bike, however, is not such an act since it is clear that the person is moving via peddling, not via a motor.

us of one who is not abashed that it is certain his ancestors were not present at Har Sinai. The Ran says the revelation at Har Sinai served to inculcate the Jewish nation with the middah of shame, which was to be transmitted to the future generations, as it says (Devarim 29:14), “Whoever is here with us, standing today before Hashem, and whoever is not here with us today.” R’ Tzadok HaCohen elaborates and notes that even at the moment a person does an aveirah Hashem still protects the individual with Divine Providence. When the individual acknowledges he has done something against Hashem’s will, and appreciates Hashem’s loving kindness notwithstanding his transgression, the person is shamed. Accordingly, when Yechezkel HaNavi relates the particulars of the Beis HaMikdash, and exalts its holiness and majesty, each member of Klal Yisrael will be ashamed of his aveiros. The Kol Tzafayich says when they are presented with the unlimited potential and the true calling for which they are destined, it evokes a different kind of humility. The Alshich comments on the pasuk in Mishlei (1:10), “If sinners seduce you, do not be enticed,” and says this reference is not limited to being misled into sin. Even if one is lured to do a mitzvah he is forbidden to listen to the sinner for his intent is not good. We read in the Torah that Moshe told Aharon to approach the Altar, and Rashi explains that Aharon was embarrassed and afraid to approach the Mizbei’ach. Our sages tell us that humility is very praiseworthy. Nevertheless, one must be careful, for often the yetzer hara will try to deter the person from doing a mitzvah by engendering misguided feelings of shame. Moshe therefore told Aharon, “Don’t be ashamed. You specifically were chosen for the kehunah gedolah, and only you can bring the Shechinah to dwell amid Klal Yisrael. The Evil Inclination wishes to deter you from this mitzvah, therefore you must distance yourself from the shame you are feeling.” The Satmar Rav was once present at a vort (an engagement party) for the son of a prominent family. As is the custom, the chassan got up to speak some divrei Torah in honor of the occasion. He had said only a few words when he was interrupted by the singing of those who were assembled. This, too, has become customary in order to allow the chassan to save face if he cannot speak. The Satmar Rav, however, was surprised. He was a great and diligent scholar, and he really wanted to hear the chassan speak. He put up his hand and requested the crowd to stop singing. The group became quiet and the chassan began to speak again. Once again, those present began to sing even louder. The Rav again raised his hand to silence them. An elderly chassid made his way to the Satmar Rav and said, “The Rav is aware that it is customary to interrupt the chassan so that he should not be embarrassed in case he doesn’t know his drasha.” The Satmar Rav replied, “What you are saying is true. But there is no longer shame in America. Let him continue because he will not be embarrassed anyway.”

Regarding the concern that the bicycle may break and the rider will be tempted to fix it, the Ben Ish Hai writes that it is not a common occurrence. Yet, many others disagree with the Ben Ish Hai’s ruling. Responsa Yaskil Avdi states that perhaps the Ben Ish Hai was not proficient in the workings of a bicycle since they were not common in his day. When alerted to the true facts, the Ben Ish Hai reportedly prohibited their use on Shabbat, even within an eruv. Responsa Keren David (Orach Chayyim 96) dis-

COVENANT & CONVERSATION RABBI LORD JONATHAN SACKS

The Counterpoint Of Leadership One of the most important Jewish contributions to our understanding of leadership is its early insistence of what, in the eighteenth century, Montesquieu called â&#x20AC;&#x153;the separation of powers.â&#x20AC;? Neither authority nor power was to be located in a single individual or office. Instead, leadership was divided between different kinds of roles. One of the most important of these divisions â&#x20AC;&#x201C; anticipating by millennia the â&#x20AC;&#x153;separation of church and stateâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was between the king, the head of state, on the one hand, and the high priest, the most senior religious officer, on the other. This was revolutionary. The kings of Mesopotamian city-states and the Pharaohs of Egypt were considered demigods, or chief intermediary with the gods. They officiated at supreme religious festivals. They were regarded as the representatives of heaven on earth. In Judaism, by stark contrast, monarchy had little or no religious function (other than the recital by the king of the book of the covenant every seven years in the ritual known as hakhel). Indeed the chief objection to the Hasmonean kings on the part of the sages was that they broke this ancient rule, some of them declaring themselves high priests also. The Talmud, in Kiddushin 66a, records the objection: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Let the crown of kingship be sufficient for you. Leave the crown of priesthood to the sons of Aaron.â&#x20AC;? The effect of this principle was to secularize power. (In Judaism power, except that exercised by God, is not holy.) No less fundamental was the division of religious leadership itself into two distinct functions: that of the prophet and the priest. That is dramatized in this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parshah, focusing as it does on the role of the priest to the exclusion of that of the prophet. Tetzaveh is the first parshah since the beginning of the book of Exodus in which Mosesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; name is missing. It is supremely the priestly, as opposed to prophetic, parshah. Priests and prophets were very different in their roles, despite the fact that some prophets, most famously Ezekiel, were priests also. Here are the differences: 1) The role of priest was dynastic, that of prophet was charismatic. Priests were the sons of Aaron. They were born into the role. Parenthood had no part in the role of the prophet. Mosesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own children were not prophets. 2) The priest wore robes of office. There was no official uniform for a prophet. 3) The priesthood was exclusively male; not so prophecy. The Talmud lists seven women prophets: Sarah, Miriam, Deborah, Hannah, Abigail, Huldah, and Esther. 4) The role of the priest did not change over time. There was a precise annual timetable of sacrifices that did not vary from year to year. The prophet, by contrast, could not know what his mission would be until God revealed it to him. Prophecy was never a matter of routine. 5) As a result, prophet and priest had different senses of time. Time for the priest was what it was for Plato: the â&#x20AC;&#x153;moving image of eternity,â&#x20AC;? a matter of everlasting recurrence and return. The prophet lived in historical time. His today was not the same as yesterday, and tomorrow would be different again. One way of putting this is that the priest heard the word of God for all time. The prophet heard the word of God for this time. 6) The priest was holy, and therefore set apart from the people. He had to eat his food in a state of purity, and had to avoid contact with the dead. The prophet, by contrast, often lived among the people and spoke a language they understood. Prophets

SENIOR FORUM ALAN MAGILL

The Friday before the Super Bowl, dozens of people had made their predictions and were looking forward to watching the game. I asked my supervisor for the key to the prize closet. Alas, when I opened the closet my excitement about the contest was instantly diminished by what I saw. The best of the prizes was some flimsy footwear you put on when you’re coming out of a pool. These gifts clearly did not match the excitement of the game and of the guess-the-score competition spawned by it. I went back to my desk saddened that these people who had already had so much taken away from them in their all-too-often isolated lives would be getting such uninspired gifts. My Friday workday ended at 3 p.m., and though the odds seemed long, I knew I wanted to come up with better prizes. I had an idea. I would call the National Football League. When I got through to someone, I explained the purpose of my call. I was told to call a company that handled Super Bowl paraphernalia and was given the number. It was around 1:45 p.m. now and I wondered if my efforts were all a fool’s errand. How could I buy anything when the powers-thatbe wouldn’t authorize one penny for something they thought they already had? But call I did. A woman answered the phone and when I explained the purpose of my call, her answer thrilled me. “Sure, we can get something nice

Super Bowl Gift To A Paralyzed Man Why do we do things? Do we engage in a certain activity because we know it’s the right thing to do, or because we wish to bring credit and praise to ourselves so that we can move up the ladder of life? Years ago I was in a situation where I had to choose between the two. I was working in a nursing home/ rehab center as a recreation therapist. The center was cut off from the nearest big city, and many of the seniors there, along with people of all ages in the rehab wards, seemed to have little contact with the outside world. Since a number of the people there were sports fans, I decided to come up with a pre-Super Bowl competition in which contestants could write down on a sheet of people their guess of who would win the big game between the Washington Redskins and the Buffalo Bills and what the final score would be. Those whose answers were closest to the actual outcome would win a prize. The contest caught on like wildfire and a lot of people signed up. My supervisor told me the nursing home’s auxiliary provided gifts for such events, and when we got closer to the Super Bowl he would give me the key to the closet containing those prizes.

The Face Of Holiness ‘Inscribed on the Tzitz HaZahav’ (Sukkah 5a) Among the eight garments of the kohen gadol was the tzitz hazahav, a golden plate that he wore across his forehead. It stretched from ear to ear and was fastened in place by three strings of techeles which were tied behind the head. Our Gemara teaches that the words “Kodesh L’Hashem – Sanctified to Hashem” were inscribed on the tzitz, with the word “Hashem” above and the words “Kodesh L’ ” below. The Rishonim offer several interpretations of where precisely the words were inscribed. Which Order? According to Rashi, the words were inscribed one above the other. This opinion is supported by the Yerushalmi, which states that Hashem’s name sat upon the words “Kodesh L’” like a king sits upon his throne. According to this opinion, the words were not inscribed in the manner in which they are meant to Meoros Hadaf Hayomi Newsletters are published by the Sochachover Kollel of Bnei Brak, led by Rabbi Chaim Dovid Kovalsky.

be read (since the word “Hashem” comes first as opposed to second). Nonetheless, we inscribe the words in this order due to divine decree (see Ritva on Shabbos 63b). Other opinions interpret the Gemara in such a manner that the words are, in fact, inscribed in the proper order. Rabbeinu Tam (Shabbos ibid, s.v. “V’kasav”) and other Rishonim maintain that “Kodesh L’” was inscribed at the beginning of the second line and “Hashem” at the end of the first line. Thus, the words can still be read from right to left in their proper order (while still keeping Hashem’s name “on top” [Maharsha on our sugya]). The Rashba (Shabbos, ibid.) suggests that “Kodesh L’” was inscribed at the end of the first line and “Hashem” at the beginning of the second. What about our Gemara that states clearly that “Hashem” is supposed to be “above” and “Kodesh L’” is supposed to be “below”? The Rashba interprets “above” to mean “on top” – i.e., at the top of the second line, meaning, the beginning of the line – and “below” to mean “at the bottom” – i.e., at the bottom of the first line, meaning, at the end of the line. The Rashba and Ritva suggest that theirs is the optimum interpretation of the Gemara since in their understanding, the words “Kodesh L’ Hashem” can be read correctly from right to left and from top to bottom (as we normally read Hebrew), with the honor of Hashem’s name still preserved since nothing is inscribed above it.

At Times It Was Inscribed… Based on the Rambam (Hilchos Klei Mikdash 9:1), we can offer a different explanation. The Rambam asserts that even the Chachamim agree that a tzitz with “Kodesh L’Hashem” inscibed on one line is kosher. They simply state that it is better, l’chatchila, to inscribe the words on two lines. The Rambam even writes, “At times they were inscribed on one line.” Thus, the fact that R’ Eliezer bar R’ Yossi saw a tzitz with all the words on one line is not surprising. Some Acharonim contend that according to the Rambam there is no disagreement between the Chachamim and R’ Eliezer. The Chachamim maintain that the words should be inscribed on two lines, and R’ Eliezer adds that, b’dieved, if they were inscribed on one line the tzitz is still kosher (Rishon L’Tzion, Sefas Emes, et. al; the Kesef Mishnah, however, does not agree with this interpretation of the Rambam).

sion on behalf of the Jewish people. While he was there, he visited the royal palace and was shown the kohen gadol’s tzitz, with the words “Kodesh L’Hashem” inscribed on one line. Why, then, did the Chachamim insist that the words were inscribed on two lines. Didn’t they believe R’ Eliezer bar R’ Yossi? The Meiri explains that the tradition of the Oral Law was so well guarded (and transmitted from one generation to the next) that the Sages relied on it even when it contradicted empirical evidence since evidence can sometimes be misleading. In this case, perhaps R’ Eliezer saw a counterfeit, or an improperly designed, tzitz.

Applications Available For NY School Safety Equipment Program The New York State Education Department has announced that applications are now available for nonpublic schools in New York State seeking reimbursement for eligible school safety projects. As explained by Deborah Zachai, director of Agudath Israel of America’s Yeshiva Services Division, in the aftermath of the tragedy in the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., New York allocated $4.5 million in funding for non-public schools for the purchase and installation of safety equipment. Eligible projects include the installation of external lighting near the entry of the building, external cameras, intercom systems, and remote electronic systems to unlatch doors as well as replacement of doors and door

Magill Continued from p.37 out to you folks.” I asked, “How much will it cost?” She said, “Oh, there’s no charge. We’re happy to do it.” She explained that she would send actual game day programs along with banners and posters, and she would do so via next-day express. I thanked her profusely. On Saturday night, when I picked up the big box that had been mailed to me, I was like a little boy in a candy store thrilled to get my hands on the goodies. Opening the box did not disappoint. Sure enough, there were game-day programs that would be sold in Minneapolis the next day at the game. There were banners for each team and color posters with a football theme. When I got to work on Sunday I knew I had more than enough prizes to give out to the contest winners. So I took some of the game-day programs and went into the rehab ward. There was a certain young man I wanted to see. I knew him as a sweet guy who didn’t let his paralysis get the better of him. Though he would lie in bed most of the day, he was determined to do what he could for himself. He couldn’t use his fingers but he had a stick with which he could turn pages of a magazine and change the channels on his television set. When I entered his ward I saw he was watching the Sunday morning news shows. I asked, “You gonna watch the game tonight?” He replied, “You bet.” I told him I had something for him and took the glossy game-day Super Bowl program out of the envelope. It seemed amazing that I was even handing it to him. Here he was, alone, in an institution on an island, cut off from the nearby big city, 1,200 miles from where fans would soon be buying these programs for $10 as they sat down to view the big game. When I handed it to him and he saw what it was, his eyes lit up. He let it drop to his bed and with his stick started turning the pages. At that moment he was certainly connected to the bigger world. When I left him he was looking through the program with a big smile on his face. Before leaving the ward I gave a program to another appreciative person. I was so glad I hadn’t given up that previous Friday afternoon when I called the National Football

hardware. To allow as many schools as possible to participate in the program, the State Education Department has extended the deadline for the submission of the grant applications from April 15, 2014 to May 30, 2014. This is good news for yeshivas planning to improve their security systems. The deadline for purchase and installation of eligible security equipment has also been extended to May 16, 2014. The State Education Department will conduct a webinar for principals and administrators in the weeks ahead. “This program will allow our yeshivos to make important safety upgrades,” says Zachai, “and we are happy to be able to help them maximize this opportunity.”

League. The game that night was exciting to watch and the audience at the residence – predominantly people in their 70s, 80s, and 90s – enjoyed it very much. The next morning I was happy to give out team banners and posters to the winners of the contest. And they were very happy to receive them. You’re never too old to feel like a kid again. Later that day, my supervisor said he wanted to speak with me about the Super Bowl gifts I had given out. I thought I might be on the receiving end of some very nice compliments. Instead, I was strongly criticized for not following proper procedure and using the auxiliary gifts. When I got back to my desk I thought about what my supervisor had said. To be sure, it might have been a problem if the auxiliary people, who worked so hard for the institution, had expected me to use the donated gifts. But they had no idea their gifts were supposed to be used for this Super Bowl contest. Making people genuinely happy, I realized, was a far greater reward than any compliments or praise.

Dear Anonymous: [F] Like your single friends, you – as a young woman in your low-mid 20s – are understandably frustrated with the shidduch scene, as the system seems to be getting to you. Seemingly unable to get past a third date while remaining active in the dating scene, the disappointment only grows. As you perceptively and introspectively wonder if the problem is due to the possibility that you might have commitment issues or that you are perhaps doing something wrong on your dates, you wisely sought the advice of those who know you best. With limited information at hand, it seems to me that if none of the people you asked had any constructive advice or criticism for you, you may simply be in the clear. I suggest that you consult a mentor. As we’ve written often, the importance of speaking to someone with whom you have a close relationship – one who is older, more experienced, and wiser than you – cannot be overstated. It is essential for one’s dating career (and prospects for success), and for life in general, for everyone in your position to have a mentor. Consider yourself blessed if your mentor doesn’t think you have any commitment issues or that you are doing something self-destructive on your dates. It may be hard right now for you to believe, but you are much luckier than you think! I have some close friends in similar situations who have dating relationships (if they could even be called that) that always end nowhere; I also have close friends who have been involved in several very serious relationships. Neither scenario is easy, each with unique challenges. But be comforted that as frustrated as you are, you have it so much easier than them. Why? Because all of these girls are in the same boat – they’re still single! (They will hopefully find their basherts very soon.) And the heartache and drama created by their long relationships are incredibly painful, and physically and emotionally draining. And at the end of the day, they’re still single – no closer to getting married than you. So it is very understandable that you feel as if you are spinning your wheels and getting absolutely nowhere. Please recognize that in no way am I minimizing the pain and frustration that you are experiencing. But remember that one day, when you meet the right one, you will be endlessly grateful that you didn’t have to go through serious relationships with the wrong one. May you meet Mr. Right very soon!

Week In Review

Stories That Didn’t Make the Front Pages Edited by JASON MAOZ

ISRAEL/MIDEAST NEWS TRANSFER OF FUNDS FOR SETTLEMENTS STOPPED OVER MISUSE ALLEGATIONS Israel’s fi nance minister halted the transfer of state funds to settlements following a television report that the money was being misused. Yair Lapid reportedly stopped the transfers while the allegations in a report on Israel’s Channel 2 are being investigated. According to the report, more than $42 million given to the settlements by the previous government to offset losses from a West Bank construction freeze were used inappropriately, specifi cally by being transferred to the settlers’ Yesha Council for advocacy purposes. Channel 2 reported that the settlements received the money in secret payments as compensation for losing out on city taxes from houses that were not built during the 10-month settlement building freeze that ended in September 2010. Thousands of housing construction starts were delayed during the freeze. The funds were transferred as “security grants,” according to Channel 2.

REPORT: KERRY FRAMEWORK INCLUDES SHARED JERUSALEM U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s pending framework for Israeli-Palestinian peace reportedly will include a shared capital in Jerusalem and recognition of Israel as a Jewish state, New York Times foreign affairs columnist Thomas Friedman wrote last week. The plan also would include land swaps based on the 1967 lines, security arrangements in the Jordan Valley and no “right of return” to Israel for Palestinian refugees and their descendants. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has rejected using the 1967 lines as the basis for a border with a Palestinian state and opposes relinquishing Israeli sovereignty within Jerusalem. He also wants Israel to maintain a dominant security presence in the Jordan Valley for the foreseeable future. Regarding Kerry’s proposal for the Jordan Valley, Friedman describes only “unprecedented security arrangements.” Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has said he will not recognize Israel as a Jewish state or negotiate away the rights of Palestinian refugees.

INTERNATIONAL NEWS BLOOD LIBEL FRESCO CAUSES UPROAR IN POLAND The leader of a Jewish community in Poland accused Catholic clergymen of perpetuating a local blood libel. Alicja Kobus, chairwoman of the Jewish community in Poznan, made the accusation in an interview with the Gazeta Wyborcza daily about a fresco that depicts a blood libel and adorns a cathedral in the city. The fresco, which was painted by the 17th-century Franciscan monk Adam Swach, depicts a local blood libel that claimed Jews desecrated communion bread before its consumption by Christians. The men are seen sticking pins in the bread as a demon watches them approvingly. Following queries about the fresco from journalists, the church recently placed a sign explaining that the scene is a blood libel. But the sign, the daily reported, was placed on a different floor of the cathedral, several hundreds of yards away from the fresco, which is located on the upper floor, near the

OMISSION OF JEWS FROM EU HOLOCAUST-DAY STATEMENT RAISES IRE A leader of Flemish Jewry criticized the European Union’s foreign policy chief, Catherine Ashton, for not mentioning Jews in a statement about the Holocaust. The statement by Ashton on Jan. 27, International Holocaust Remembrance Day, was “a departure from [recognition of] the uniqueness of the mass murder by the Nazis of the Jewish people” and of Roma, Raphael Werner, the chairman of the Flemish Forum of Jewish Organizations, said in a statement issued Wednesday. In past talks over commemoration projects with the government of the Flemish region – one of three entities that make up the federal Belgian state – the Jewish group has advocated a policy that refers to the uniqueness of the persecution of Jews and Roma, resisting government-backed initiatives that instead highlighted universalist values. In her 122-word statement, Ashton wrote, “We honor every one of those brutally murdered in the darkest period of European history.” She added, “We also want to pay a special tribute to all those who acted with courage and sacrifi ce to protect their fellow citizens against persecution.” The statement did not mention Jews or anti-Semitism.

EUROPEAN JEWISH OFFICIALS DEFEND CIRCUMCISION Representatives of European Jewish groups defended ritual circumcision at a hearing of the Council of Europe. Offi cials from the European Jewish Congress and the Conference of European Rabbis presented facts and defenses of Jewish male ritual circumcision during the hearing on Tuesday. The hearing was called after the council’s Parliamentary Assembly, or PACE, passed a resolution last October suggesting that religious circumcision contravened “the rights of children’s physical integrity.” Rabbi Moche Lewin, executive director of the Conference of European Rabbis, said, “There is no doubt that we would prefer the issue of milah not to be on the political agenda at any level in Europe, but what was demonstrated today is that wherever it is discussed or debated, the Jewish communities of Europe will be unequivocal and robust in our defense of our fundamental religious rights.” The resolution, while not binding on member states, has acted as a catalyst for anti-circumcision initiatives in several European states.

U.S. NEWS ISRAEL AS ‘MAJOR STRATEGIC ALLY’ BILL PASSES KEY HOUSE PANEL The House Foreign Affairs Committee approved a bill that would enhance the already close U.S.-Israel defense relationship. The bill initiated by U.S. Reps. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (D-Fla.) and Ted Deutch (D-Fla.), the top two members on the committee’s Middle East subcommittee, passed unanimously. Leaders of the full House of Representatives will decide if the measure goes to the full House for consideration. It names Israel a “major strategic ally” of the United States – no other nation has the status – and

includes measures that would encourage enhanced cooperation such as missile development, energy and homeland security. The measure also calls for expanding the reserve of U.S. weapons stockpiled in Israel and recommends that Israel join the U.S. visa waiver program, allowing for unfettered travel between the countries once Israel meets its requirements. Similar legislation is under consideration in the Senate.

ABUSE LAWSUIT AGAINST YESHIVA U. TOSSED A federal judge tossed out a $380 million sexual abuse lawsuit fi led against Yeshiva University by 34 former students of its high school for boys in New York. Judge John Koeltl of Manhattan District Court in his 52-page legal opinion said the victims, who range in age from their late 30s to their early 60s, waited too long to speak up in accusing the institution of turning a blind eye to molestation they alleged to have suffered at the Manhattan school. “Statutes of limitations strike a balance between providing a reasonable time for victims to bring their claims while assuring that defendants have a fair opportunity to defend themselves before evidence is lost or memories fade,” Koeltl said. “In this case, the statutes of limitations have expired decades ago, and no exceptions apply.” Kevin Mulhearn, the plaintiffs’ lawyer, called Koeltl’s decision an “abomination and a disgrace” and said he plans to appeal.

LONGTIME CONGRESSMAN WAXMAN TO RETIRE Rep. Henry Waxman, the dean of Jewish lawmakers in the U.S. House of Representatives, is retiring. Waxman (D-Calif.), 74, who was fi rst elected to Congress from a Los Angeles-area district in 1974, will fi nish out his term, which ends next Jan. 2. Waxman has risen to leadership positions in the House, most recently as the senior Democrat on the powerful Energy Committee, which he chaired from 2009 to 2011. Waxman was perhaps most prominent as the chairman of the Oversight Committee during the last two years of the George W. Bush administration, convening hearings about the conduct of the Iraq War. The longest serving Jewish House member, Waxman has taken a lead on pro-Israel issues, most recently in joining with Energy Committee Chairman Fred Upton (R-Mich.) to advance a bill that would increase cooperation with Israel in energy research.

When I was growing up, the shadchan, or marriage broker as the term is translated today, was a far cry from our modern-day commercialized professional introduction services. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get me wrong. I would never make light of the people who operate these services. In fact, I think they do more for mankind than most people. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just that once upon a time a shadchan took a more personal approach to matching up singles. Take the case of Irving and the wonderful neighborhood shadchan â&#x20AC;&#x201C; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll call her Mrs. K. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who was determined to rescue him from a life of lonely bachelorhood. Irving was a neighbor of ours in the Bronx. He was a very nice boy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not too bright but a nice boy. Handsome he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t either, but personable â&#x20AC;&#x201C; well, not exactly personable, but letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s put it this way: when he kept his mouth shut he looked like any other normal human being. He worked for his father, who had a small dress factory in the garment center. Irving would push a hand truck in the cloak-and-suit jungle through sleet and snow to make certain those dresses would get to their destinations. The years passed and Irving was still single. His parents were quite concerned. Finally, Irvingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother went downstairs to Mrs. K. and asked if she could find a girl for Irving. The shadchanim back then didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have fancy offices. They operated out of their modest apartments, consuming gallons of tea as clients sat with them discussing their interests and preferences. Very often, the young couples would meet at the shadchanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s apartment â&#x20AC;&#x153;accidentally.â&#x20AC;? For example, if a girl was to be introduced to a boy, the boy would be invited to the shadchanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s apartment to discuss something. In the course of the discussion, the girl who was to meet the boy would come into the apartment holding a cake pan with a freshly baked sponge cake, allegedly for the shadchan. The bit here is that the girl didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the shadchan had company. The shadchan would invite the boy to join them for tea and sponge cake and shoen â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the wheels of matrimony were moving. Of course, the girls never baked the cakes. The girls Mrs. K. sent up to Mama couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even boil a pot of water. The shadchan had a deal with Mama. Whenever a prospective client was ready for an introduction, Mama would bake a cake. The girl would stop at our apartment and Mama would ask her to take it down to Mrs. K. Naturally, the girl never said she baked the cake â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the shadchan would say something like, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it wonderful to find pretty girls today who know how to bake?â&#x20AC;?

Using the old sponge cake routine, Mrs. K. set Irving up with a girl named Sophie. As she usually did after the introductions were made, she announced that by sheer coincidence she had two tickets to a Jewish show on Second Avenue that night. She gave them to Irving and Sophie, explaining that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d bought them to help a charity and it would be a pity if they went to waste. Since Irving always went to work with his father, he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how to travel on the subway to get to the theater. Mrs. K. didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know this and neither did the girl. When the couple met up at the East 179th Street station, Irving was too embarrassed to ask the man at the booth where to get off. He figured heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d ask someone on the train when Sophie wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t looking. So they got on the first train that came along and rodeâ&#x20AC;Śand rode. Irving kept waiting for someone to sit next to them, but no one did. Finally, when they got to the end of the run, Irving majestically announced, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where we get off.â&#x20AC;? They were somewhere in the hinterlands of Flatbush. So they got back on a Manhattan-bound train â&#x20AC;&#x201C; only this time they went too far in the opposite direction and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get off before they were way out in Queens. The two of them were still riding the rails when the show they were supposed to have seen was long over. We never did figure out whether Sophie was as clueless as Irving about the trains â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or whether she shrewdly let him take the lead, figuring that the time spent on the subway would give them a chance to really get to know each other. The two became engaged and were soon married. Nu, how did things go for couple? Not too badly, as it turned out. When Irvingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father passed away he left him the small dress business. What Irving knew about running a dress business could have filled a thimble. When an order came in he would turn it over to the foreman and that was that. Then one day a real garment center cowboy came in and offered to sell Irving material that had been popular 40 years before. This character had discovered the goods at some ancient warehouse and figured heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d dump the load on Irving. Sure enough, Irving bought everything â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and practically mortgaged his business to do it. The sharpie sure knew how to pick his pigeons â&#x20AC;&#x201C; no one in his right mind would have bought the stuff. But the following year some designer in Paris dreamed up a style that was a perfect match for the material Irving had bought. When word got around that Irving had cornered the market and had a warehouse full of the material, the money came rolling in. He was on easy street from that day on.

Sacks Continued from p.35 could come from any social class. 7) The key words for the priest were tahor, tamei, kodesh, and chol: pure, impure, sacred, and secular. The key words for the prophets were tzedek, mishpat, chesed, and rachamim: righteousness, justice, love, and compassion. It is not that the prophets were concerned with morality while the priests were not. Some of the key moral imperatives, such as “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” come from priestly sections of the Torah. It is rather that priests think in terms of a moral order embedded in the structure of reality, sometimes called a “sacred ontology.” (See Philip Rieff’s My Life Among the Deathworks, University of Virginia Press, 2006.) Prophets tended to think not of things or acts in themselves but in terms of relationships between persons or social classes. 8) The task of the priest is boundary maintenance. The key priestly verbs are lehavdil and lehorot, to distinguish one thing from another and apply the appropriate rules. Priests gave rulings while prophets gave warnings. 9) There is nothing personal about the role of a priest. If one – even a high priest – was unable to officiate at a given service, another could be substituted. Prophecy was essentially personal. The sages said that “no two prophets prophesied in the same style” (Sanhedrin 89a). Hosea was not Amos. Isaiah was not Jeremiah. Each prophet had a distinctive voice. 10) Priests constituted a religious establishment. The prophets, at least those whose messages have been eternalized in Tanach, were not an establishment but an anti-establishment, critical of the powers-that-be. The roles of priest and prophet varied over time. The priests always officiated at the sacrificial service of the Temple. But they were also judges. The Torah says that if a case is too difficult to be dealt with by the local court, you should “go to the priests, the Levites, and to the judge who is in office at that time. Inquire of them and they will give you the verdict” (Deuteronomy 17:9). Moses blesses the tribe of Levi, saying that “They will teach



Your ordinances to Jacob and Your Torah to Israel” (Deuteronomy 33:10) – suggesting that they had a teaching role as well. Malachi, a prophet of the Second Temple period, says: “For the lips of a priest ought to preserve knowledge, because he is the messenger of the Lord Almighty and people seek instruction from his mouth” (Malachi 2:7). The priest was guardian of Israel’s sacred social order. Yet it is clear throughout Tanach that the priesthood was liable to corruption. There were times when priests took bribes, others when they compromised Israel’s faith and performed idolatrous practices. Sometimes they became involved in politics. Some held themselves as an elite apart from, and disdainful toward, the people as a whole. At such times the prophet became the voice of God and the conscience of society, reminding the people of their spiritual and moral vocation; calling on them to return and repent; reminding the people of their duties to God and to their fellow humans; and warning of the consequences if they did not. The priesthood became massively politicized and corrupted during the Hellenistic era, especially under the Seleucids in the second century BCE. Hellenized high priests like Jason and Menelaus introduced idolatrous practices, even at one stage a statue of Zeus, into the Temple. This provoked the internal revolt that led to the events we recall on the festival of Chanukah. Yet despite the fact that the initiator of the revolt, Matityahu, was himself a righteous priest, corruption re-emerged under the Hasmonean kings. The Qumran sect known to us through the Dead Sea Scrolls was particularly critical of the priesthood in Jerusalem. It is striking that the sages traced their spiritual ancestry to the prophets, not the priests (Avot 1:1). The kohanim were essential to ancient Israel. They gave the religious life its structure and continuity, its rituals and routines, its festivals and celebrations. Their task was to ensure that Israel remained a holy people with God in its midst. But they were an establishment, and like every establishment, at best they were the guardians of the nation’s highest values, but at worst they became corrupt, using their position for power and engaging in internal politics for personal advantage. That is the fate of establishments, especially those

whose membership is a matter of birth. That is why the prophets were essential. They were the world’s first social critics, mandated by God to speak truth to power. Still today, for good or otherwise, religious establishments always resemble Israel’s priesthood. Who, though, are Israel’s prophets at the present time? The essential lesson of the Torah is that leadership can never be confined to one class or role. It must always be distributed and divided. In ancient Israel, kings dealt with power, priests with holiness, and prophets with the integrity and faithfulness of society as a whole. In Judaism, leadership is less a function than a field of tensions between different roles, each with its own perspective and voice. Leadership in Judaism is counterpoint, a musical form defined as “the technique of combining two or more melodic lines in such a way that they establish a harmonic relationship while retaining their linear individuality.” It is this internal complexity that gives Jewish leadership its vigor, saving it from entropy, the loss of energy over time. Leadership must always, I believe, be like this. Every team must be made up of people with different roles, strengths, temperaments and perspectives. They must always be open to criticism and they must always be on the alert against groupthink. The glory of Judaism is its insistence that only in heaven is there One commanding voice. Down here on earth no individual may ever hold a monopoly of leadership. Out of the clash of perspectives – king, priest, and prophet – comes something larger than any individual or role could achieve.

Kaf HaChayim (Orach Chayim 404:8) notes that many who ride bicycles on Shabbat are not b’nei Torah and, if given permission to ride within the town limits, will likely travel beyond them since one can traverse numerous amot quickly. He also writes that a fl at tire may cause the rider to violate the labor of metaken manah and notes that the custom in Israel is not to ride bikes on Shabbat or holidays. I noted that many strollers today have air-filled tires that occasionally require additional air. People use such strollers, however, without concern for metaken manah. I suggested that we abide by what our sages teach us in Berachot 45a – that we don’t seek to overburden people in matters where we can opt for leniency. Last week, we discussed using elevators on Shabbat. Rabbi Ben Zion Hai Uziel, zt”l (Responsa Piskei Uziel 16:7), cites the Mechaber (Orach Chayim 276:2), who permits a Jew to benefit from a candle lit by a gentile if the majority of those present are not Jewish or if the gentile lit the candle for his own use. From this ruling, Rabbi Uziel derives that a Jew may ride on an elevator on Shabbat together with a gentile as w/ long as he doesn’t specifiC cally ask the gentile to acGr olle ad ge company him. We also discussed per Shabbat elevators, which Month stop automatically at ev-

Continued from p.34 agrees with those who prohibit wheeling baby carriages in an area with an eruv because of metaken kli shir or uvdin d’chol. Although Tractate Beza (25b) prohibits a blind man walking with a stick and a disabled person being carried on the holidays for long distances, baby carriages are not used for distant transport. Rather, they are used to stroll in public places. The Machtzit Hashekel (Orach Chayim 522:1) cites numerous authorities who permit using a cane if there is concern that the person will fall. Rabbi Goldstein concludes that wheeling baby carriages is permitted on Shabbat within an eruv, but riding bikes isn’t (because bikes are used for long distances and, therefore, riding one is an uvdin d’chol). He notes, though, that those who opt for leniency have authorities upon whom to rely.

ery fl oor. Many authorities permit the elderly and infirm to use them, while some, like Rabbi Yosef Eliyahu Henkin, maintain that everyone may use them. ***** Sometimes a seemingly unrelated factor can resolve a halachic dilemma. In our case, this “invisibility factor” was alluded to several weeks ago in a letter to the editor published in The Jewish Press (1/3/14) by my friend Dr. Joshua Canter, who has a dental practice in Boro Park, Brooklyn. Here is the letter: That Black Man Might Be Your Brother The purpose of this letter is to make the olam aware of an issue that comes up for many of us on Shabbos. I am not writing this to discuss when it is permitted to approach a nonJew to help you out on Shabbos. Rather, I wish to focus on whom you might be inadvertently choosing to assist you. The reality is that we have many converts in our midst. They come in many nationalities and colors. I am a dentist in Boro Park and have a black Jewish dental assistant whose parents converted. To be brief, her father was a soldier in World War II. He was so moved by his exposure to survivors in the concentration camps that he decided to undergo an Orthodox conversion and moved his fledgling family to Jerusalem. Unfortunately he died at a young age and the chil-

Klass Continued from p.48 dren grew up experiencing much difficulty. One daughter went off the derech and moved back to the U.S., where she adopted a totally secular lifestyle. She had a few children who knew they were Jewish but knew little about Judaism. One of those children was recently in New York to visit his aunt. Walking in Flatbush on Shabbos, he was approached by two frum women who asked him to help them by turning on a light. How should they have known that the black man with braids was a Jew? After they hinting to him several times what it was they wanted him to do, he understood and flipped on the light. A child witnessing the event sheepishly told the women, “I think he is Jewish.” The young man promptly responded, “Yes I am, and Shabbat Shalom.” Let this story teach us not to make any assumptions.

Tel Aviv’s Religious Reawakening By Gedaliah Borvick I have always valued Tel Aviv’s importance as Israel’s largest economic hub and as a leading center for medicine and education. I also appreciate its wonderful museums, parks and performing arts venues. As Tel Aviv is known for its hip atmosphere and famous 24-hour culture, I never expected the city to become a destination for young religious people. I was wrong.

Ever since its establishment in 1909, Tel Aviv has always been home to religious Jews. In the early years, the city even had prohibitions against some forms of commerce on the Sabbath. Interestingly, Tel Aviv is the only major city in Israel that has only Jewish places of worship, an important factor which attracted many chassidic reb-

bes. By the 1960s, there were close to 50 chassidic sects that were based in Tel Aviv. But by the early 1970s, the city began to become more chic and housing prices skyrocketed. Observant Jews began to leave in droves and most of the city’s 500 synagogues experienced dramatic declines in membership. Around the time of Israel’s 2005 disengagement from the Gaza Strip, many people felt a visceral need for Jews in all segments of society to reconnect. A number of religious organizations became active in Tel Aviv, aspiring to improve relations between the city’s religious and secular populations and strengthen the city’s synagogues. In addition, groups of young families – called “garinim” (literally “seeds”) – started moving in to Tel Aviv to help revitalize the city’s religious environment. Another element that has in uenced the el Aviv religious landscape has been the arrival of numerous European – primarily French – observant Jews. With a air and passion for ne cuisine, many of these immigrants have opened kosher restaurants, bakeries and gourmet food stores. Notwithstanding the in u of young idealistic families and European immigrants, probably the main in uence on the religious upsurge in Tel Aviv has been the large religious singles

NJ Conversion Therapy Law Challenged In Court A recently enacted New Jersey law that prohibits therapists from assisting minors with “sexual orientation change efforts” has been challenged by therapists on the grounds that the law is unconstitutional. A federal district court judge upheld the law, and the challengers have appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals. Agudath Israel of America as well as Nefesh, an international association of Orthodox Jewish mental health professionals, ha e led a friend of the court brief, arguing that the law violates the constitutional free speech rights of both therapists and minors seeking counseling. he brief notes that hile e ersey nds it perfectly acceptable for minors over 14 to check themselves into and out of psychiatric hospitals where they can be given powerful psychotropic medications, the state deems them incapable of deciding to seek the help of a licensed therapist to reduce or eliminate unwanted sexual orientation, behavior, or identity. New Jersey has effectively decreed that the decision to seek help of that nature is per se harmful to that minor, despite substantial evidence to the contrary. Agudath Israel and Nefesh argue that psycho-

logical counseling is speech and as such is protected by the \ the United States Constitution. Numerous cases cited in the brief offer proof that the right to receive information is a fundamental constitutional right connected to the right of freedom of speech. Those constitutional rights have been extended to teenagers as well as adults in previous court rulings. The authors of the brief were noted free-speech expert Ronald Coleman, Agudath Israel’s general counsel Mordechai Biser, and Mark Kahn, a law student at Georgetown Law School. “This issue was considered carefully by the members of the Moetzes Gedolei HaTorah, the Council of Torah Sages of Agudath Israel, who felt strongly that youngsters struggling with such a sensitive challenge should have access to the type of professional help that will enable them to lead healthy Torah lives,” said Mordechai Biser. “We hope that the Court of Appeals will take our views into account and strike down this serious infringement on the rights of therapists to freely practice their profession and the rights of minors to receive therapy that they seek.”

city for this spiritual resurgence, as it is relatively open-minded and accepting of nonconformists. New and innovative congregations have been established throughout the city, which address the needs of professionals and students from diverse cultural and religious backgrounds. The city’s renewed religious vitality has also affected the older synagogues, as a number of these establishments now offer innovative programs and lectures. In addition, numerous outreach centers are thriving in their efforts to help secular Jews explore their heritage. There are many learning centers that offer a full spectrum of classes on practically every level from beginner to highly advanced. Many of these centers augment their learning programs with social and entertainment programs, serving as vibrant hubs for Jewish activities and addressing the need for healthy environments for singles to meet. Although many religious singles moved to Tel Aviv in order to enjoy a more liberal lifestyle, there is no mistaking the increased interest in religious activities among the city’s secular population. In Tel Aviv’s tolerant environment, countless people who ha e spent their li es shunning religion are nally discovering their Jewish roots.

A Diamond With A Flaw “You shall place both stones on the shoulder straps of the ephod, remembrance stones for the Children of Israel.” – Shemos 28:12 Moshe was commanded to make garments for the kohanim. Included in these was the ephod, a piece of clothing similar to an apron, with two shoulder straps on top holding the avnei shoham, gold settings that contained precious stones. Hashem told Moshe to engrave the names of the twelve shevatim (tribes) onto these stones as a remembrance. Rashi explains that this was so that the memory of Reuven, Shimon, Levi, etc. would be invoked when the kohen gadol did the avodah, and Hashem would then remember their righteousness. This Rashi seems to be difficult to understand. The avodah (service) of the kohen gadol is vital and highly sensitive; the world’s very existence depends on it. As a result, there are many items that are avoided in the avodah so as not to bring up even the faintest memories of sin. While there is no question the namesakes of the shevatim were men of extraordinary greatness, that greatness was also tainted with the sin of selling their brother. Didn’t that sin permanently affect who

Hashem Created Us Knowing We Would Sin When Hashem formed man, it was not for him to be perfect. Perfection rests in the realm of the malachim (angels). A malach will spend its entire existence without sin. Malachim are perfect. But malachim aren’t men. Man and man alone was given the unique opportunity in all of creation – to determine his destiny, either becoming the greatest of all or sinking below the animals.

they were? Shouldn’t that be reason enough not to mention their names in such a critical situation? The answer to this is based on an issue of perspective. Imagine there are two large diamonds in front of you, one a beautifully cut jewel with a minor flaw, the other the same as the first, but flawless – a perfect diamond. If we were to ask a diamond expert to appraise the two, there is no doubt that he would tell us the difference between them is huge. He would say the diamond with the minor flaw is worth a fortune while the completely flawless diamond is almost worthless — because it is a fake. One of the signs a diamond is real is that it has a flaw. While it may be a very minor imperfection and almost unnoticeable, all genuine diamonds have flaws. The only perfect diamonds are made of cubic zirconium, and are costume jewelry.

To allow man to create who he would be for eternity, Hashem gave him free will. However, free will doesn’t mean the theoretical ability to choose; it means being put into situations where either choice is viable and either option is real. Man has to be challenged. To allow for that, man has to be tempted to choose either good or bad and be given the ability to make mistakes. Every man will make mistakes. Some are large and some are small, but the idea of man living without sin isn’t part of the picture. The answer to the question on Rashi seems to be that the shevatim were in fact men of unimaginable greatness, but they also had a s and sinned.

SHABBAT FORSHPEIS RABBI AVI WEISS

Arbiter Of Checks And Balances Built into an open democratic system of government is the idea that too much power should not be invested in any one individual. Such a policy leads to dictatorship. Hence the concept of checks and balances, in which individuals in government invested with power are checked and balanced out by other individuals. Indeed the principal of checks and balances is basic to the American political system. This idea is also found in the wisdom of the Torah. Each individual in Torah leadership has unique tasks and, in the end, limits and checks the power of the other. For example: the navi (prophet) serves as the bearer of ethical standards; the melech (king) heads the executive branch; the Sanhedrin is the judiciary. And, as our parshah points out, the kohen serves as the ritual model for the am (the people). When a leader assumes more than one of these roles it leads to devastation. This type of devastation actually occurred in the time of the Maccabees who became not only the executive heads of the people but also the ritual leadership. The Torah takes the concept of checks and balances a step further. Built into the respective roles of Jewish leadership is the recognition that each of these powerful and important leaders is subservient to a higher power, to God. In the end, God is the ultimate check and balance. The navi never speaks without the imprimatur of God. Unlike the Christian model where a man-god spea s in the rst person, our navi speaks with the refrain, “Thus says the Lord.” Similarly, the melech must carry a Torah with him at all times. He does this so that he constantly understands that he does not dictate the law; rather, the Torah dictates the law to him. Even the judiciary has its limits, for the highest court can only offer the law based on the foundations and principles set forth at Sinai by the Almighty. t is not only the role de nitions that con ey limitation of power. Even the clothes worn remind the leaders of this message. Around the head of the priest is the tzitz (a plate of pure gold), upon which the words “Holy to the Lord” are stated (Exodus 28:36). In contrast to the ancient priests who so often abused their power, our kohen is reminded constantly that whatever his power, it emerges from the Almighty. In this sense the priest in the Tabernacle is a ing of the story of Adam and e in the Garden of Eden. There, in the beauty of Eden, they disobey God’s words. Here, in the mishkan, a kind of Garden of Eden within the larger world, the kohen is mandated to follow the word of God. It is not a coincidence that in Eden God made clothes for Adam and e Genesis n the ing story the priest also wears clothes (Exodus 28:4). Here, however, the priest, unlike Adam and Eve, follows the word of God. In contemporary times, when politicians feel so entitled they often act as if they are superhuman, the roles and messages presented in the Torah teach us that in the end, each person, no matter her or his stature, is human and fallible. Only God is infallible and stands alone as the ultimate check and balance. Rabbi Avi Weiss is founder and president of Yeshivat Chovevei Torah and senior rabbi of the Hebrew Institute of Riverdale.

But anyone familiar with outreach work realizes that this is a long-term goal usually taking many years of hard work and close relationships. Meanwhile, however, every advance in Jewish practice and commitment by any Jew is welcome and positive.

Members Of Congress Try To Persuade Maryland Transportation Dept. To Sever Ties With French Rail Company That Aided Nazis WASHINGTON, D.C. — On a recent trip to Poland to observe the 69th anniversary of liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp, Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney stood by the very rail line that brought over a million men, women and children to their death. The Holocaust could never have occurred on such a ast, methodical and murderously ef cient scale, had it not been for transportation infrastruc-

ture of a modern industrial state. Eichmann’s willing collaborators made sure the death trains ran on time o , an af liate of one of the same railroad companies that brought victims to the Nazi death camps could win a contract to build a new metro line in the DC area. Maloney joined with Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen to send a letter to Maryland’s Department of Transportation requesting that the state se er all ties ith a French rail rm that aided the Nazis during World War II and has never been held accountable. Maryland’s Department of Transportation recently announced that Keolis, a company which is majority-owned by Société Nationale des Chemins de fer Français (SNCF), has been selected to bid on the Purple Line rail extension project. In World War II, SNCF collaborated with the Na-

zis to transfer more than 76,000 Jews and thousands of others to concentration camps, but has not provided any restitution to victims. “SNCF refuses to hold itself accountable for its role in the Holocaust, and ignores a moral obligation to the survivors and veterans who are taxpayers of Maryland,” wrote Maloney and Ros-Lehtinen. “While we look forward to the innovative Purple Line, we do not believe that it should be done through the partnership of Keolis as an entity of SNCF.” Last year Maloney and Ros-Lehtinen introduced the Holocaust Rail Justice Act, which would provide Holocaust survivors their day in court against SNCF. The bill has not seen committee action. Following her visit to Auschwitz, Maloney vowed to redouble her efforts to pass the Holocaust Rail Justice Act, saying: “Any promises of ’never again’ and ‘never forget’ ring somewhat hollow, if we are willing to do business with a company that aided and abetted the Nazi killing

machine. The world must not forget their collaboration with evil, even if they turn out to be the lowest bidder.”

Rahr Donates 50 Ambucyclyes To Israel’s United Hatzalah JERUSALEM – Stewart Rahr surprised a jubilant group of United Hatzalah supporters by quadrupling his initial donation of 12 life-saving ambucycles at a ceremony held in his honor on Tuesday. The selfmade billionaire from Nwew York made the generous offer at a dedication ceremony on the roof of Aish HaTorah, in Jerusalem’s Old City, overlooking the Kotel plaza. He called on all present to make donations that he would match, the result was a total of 50 ambucycles with an estimated value of $1,300,000. These matching donations included eight ambucycles donated by Daniel Greif of Toronto, eight ambucycles donated by David Hager of Los Angeles, and three that were contributed by Ron Daniels. This comes in the con-

“Mi’shenichnas Adar marbim b’simcha – With the start of the month of Adar, we add to our happiness.” This year we have a double dose of happiness, since it’s a Jewish leap year, which contains two Adars. It’s interesting that when the rabbis discuss how to increase one’s joy, they offer ideas such as learning Torah, for there is no joy like the learning of Torah. Others suggest drinking a little wine, since wine gladdens the hearts of men. hen reflecting on this question, I had a sudden thought. Perhaps the sages are recommending that with the onset of Adar we should make an increased effort at making other people happy. After all, this is the season of mishloach manos and matanos l’evyonim, sending presents to our friends and giving gifts to the poor. It is the time when Mordechai and Esther strove to unite the Jewish people in brotherly love. Thus, we can suggest that Adar is the time to research ways to bring one’s spouse more happiness. he very beginning of this pursuit is finding some available time to spend with your mate. I know many couples that are so weary from the grind of commuting to work, making a living, chauffeuring the children, doing homework, paying bills, running errands, cleaning, cooking, and attending all kinds of simchas that all they have left is physical and mental collapse. Adar is a good time for a reality check. Am I living up to the commitment I made under the chuppah to ensure my mate’s happiness? During the two Adars, find the time to ask your spouse for a report card on your relationship. It will be a springboard to discuss how you can improve at making each other happier. Then there are the children. The old adage that the best present you can give to your children is more of your presence is an extremely vital concept. So too is the suggestion that the word family is an acronym for Father And Mother I Love You. How much do we invest in our children’s happiness? Do we spend money on the foods they like, time on the trips they look forward to, clothing they will enjoy, vacations they dream about, shidduchim they worry about? Are we there for them? Of course, we must always consider our parents. For grownups, it’s especially easy to forget our responsibilities to parents since they aren’t front and center in our everyday lives. The Gemara tells us, “That which is not in front of us is easy to forget.” But the Fifth Commandment demands from us that we be forever vigilant in increasing our parents’ joy. Sharing our accomplishments with them and taking the time to visit, to call or even to e-mail or text is a sure way to increase the happiness of those who are responsible for our very existence. Last but not least, we shouldn’t forget the advice of the Rambam: There is no greater joy than gladdening the hearts of the widow and the orphan, the poor, and the convert; making time for the lonely; cheering up the elderly, the ill, and the forlorn. These are sure ways to make our two Adars truly meaningful. May it be the will of Hashem that we merit to make many people happy, and in that zechus may we blessed with long life, good health, and all kinds of happiness.

A TREASURY OF TORAH RIDDLES RABBI MORDECHAI WEINTRAUB, Z”L

??

Solutions To Last Week’s Torah Riddles Torah Personalities Riddle: Which historic leader led a campaign to preserve Jewish religious values in the face of pagan opposition? Solution: Judah the Maccabee, who was from the priestly dynasty of the Hasmonean family. Leading the revolt against the Syrian ruler, Antiochus Epiphanes, Judah led the campaign to preserve Jewish religious values in the face of pagan opposition. On Kislev 25, 165 B.C.E., he rededicated the Second Temple in Jerusalem. The Gemara (Shabbos 21b) says that the Festival of Chanukah is celebrated for eight days because of the miraculous character of the pure oil found in the emple hough suf cient for one day, the oil burned for eight days.

Mitzvos: Commandments Riddle: Explain how someone can fulfill the mitzvah of tzedakah without giving tzedakah. Solution: This can occur when someone solicits others to give tzedakah to the poor. As the Gemara (Baba Basra states “He ho gets others to ful ll mitzvos is greater than he who does so himself.”

It is also sometimes read in the language of the land where the wedding ceremony is being performed.

Times And Places Riddle: About which document does the Gemara say: “The parties [always] quarrel”? Solution: According to the Gemara (Shabbos 130a), “There is no Kesubah – marriage contract – in which the parties do not quarrel.” Tosfos Kesubah (dowries) with incorporated additions into the Kesubah caused the squabbling. Note: Today, the Kesubah’s standard document (purchased in most sefarim stores) consists of mostly blan ording, the details of hich are to be lled in by the of ciating rabbi hus there is ery little reason, or no reason at all, for squabbling between the parties since the details are discussed and nali ed before the wedding ceremony. This document, given to the bride for safekeeping, is her legal proof of her husband’s obligations toward her. The Kesubah is read in Aramaic right before or during the marriage ceremony.

Torah Personalities Riddle: Name the authors of the first three berachos in the Birchas Hamazon.

This Week’s Torah Riddles

Mitzvos: Commandments Riddle: Describe the scenario whereby a person is required to give mussar to a fellow Jew. What conditions apply to the person giving the mussar? Laws Riddle: According to the rabbanan, describe the scenario whereby a Jewish farmer working on his boss’s farm is permitted to eat from the farm’s produce – even while he is not on the job and his boss has not granted him permission to do so. The solutions to these Torah Riddles, plus additional Torah Riddles, will appear in next week’s column.

TALMUD TOPICS RAPHAEL GRUNFELD

Divine Protection (Daf Yomi Sukkah) The Torah proclaims the 15th day of Tishrei the beginning of the seven-day festival of Sukkot and requires that during that time we dwell in boots. Typically, the Torah gives no reason for its commandments and we are left to fathom them for ourselves. But the mitzvah of sukkah has a stated reason: “That your generations may know that I made the children

of Israel dwell in booths when I brought them out of the land of Egypt.” If the holiday of Sukkot commemorates the exodus from gypt, hich too place in the rst month of isan, why are we told to dwell in boots in the seventh month of Tishrei? The answer may lie in mystery the Torah invests in the number seven. On the seventh day of each week we dedicate time, that precious and irretrievable asset, to God. And in return God shelters us in His cloud, where the pressures of time are suspended for the day. Give and take is the essence of every relationship, including that of God and man. But when we came out of Egypt, we did not understand that. The wealth we accumulated from the Egyptians on the way out was invested in the golden calf. And so God summoned back His cloud of protection and left us to the pressures of our own possessions. It was only in the seventh month of Tishrei, when Moses returned from the mountain of God with the gift of amnesty, that e nally agreed to donate our cherished possessions to the building of God’s house rather than our own. Between the eleventh and the fteenth days of Tishrei, the Jews busied themselves with the building of the Mishkan, God’s residence. When the Mishkan was completed on the eve of the fteenth day of ishrei, God and man renounced their respective permanent residences. God descended from his lofty residence and resided in the House we built for Him. And we leave behind the house we built ourselves and reside in

the sukkah He builds for us. What were the desert sukkot made of? Some maintain they were God’s clouds that protected us from the elements as we trudged through the desert. Others say they were real booths we built ourselves. he et i suggests that both opinions are right According to him, when the Jews encamped, they built their own sukkot. And when they were on the move, God protected them with His Cloud of Glory. Indeed the very construction of the sukkah seems to incorporate both opinions. The roof must be made of natural vegetation, unprocessed and unused by man, and like all Godly things it must be of a substance that cannot be contaminated. Without the roof there is no sukkah. But without the walls there is no roof. In fact, the walls must be erected rst or else the sukkah is dis uali ed ust as the Shabbat is a joint venture in time between God and man, so too the sukkah is a joint venture in space between God and man. This perhaps explains why so many of the fundamental laws of eruvin (tzurat hapetach, lavud, gud asik, korah and lechi), are derived from the laws of Sukkot. When we are on the move in life, exiled from place to place, we turn to God, our Partner, for the protection of His cloud. When we are given the luxury of settling down, God turns to us, His partner, for the protection of our walls. Perhaps that is why the Ushpizin, the guests Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, Aaron, Joseph and David, who according to the Kabbalah reside with us in our sukkot, feel so at home there – for they knew a nomadic existence in which they shared their fragile homes with God and God with them. n the rst t o nights of Sukkot, eating in the sukkah is a orah re uirement that must be ful lled A person may not say, “I would rather skip dinner altogether and not eat in the sukkah.” One must, unless one is sick, have dinner in the sukkah. On the other days of Sukkot there is no Torah requirement to eat in the sukkah, and one may decide (except on Shabbat and Yom Tov) to skip all meals and eat fruit or snacks outside the sukkah. Regular meals, however, must be eaten in the sukkah.

employer may give large sums to charity does not mean that he will pay employees more than the amount agreed upon. So too, one cannot assume that G-d’s treatment of human beings will be the same as His treatment of animals. Animals are graced with benevolent kindness since they have no Torah to uphold. Human beings, though, have rules e ards are granted for ful lling mitzvot and punishments are meted out for nonobservance. A prayer, therefore, that asks G-d to extend the mercy He grants animals to human beings obscures the ne distinction bet een these t o orlds n a way, one is asking for a dilution of the ef cacy of “re ard and punishment” and seeking a life without standards.

G-d Expects More From Us Question: The Talmud (Berachot 33b) notes that it is improper to implore G-d: “Just as You have shown mercy upon a bird’s nest [with the mitzvah of shiluach ha’kan], so, too, may you have mercy and compassion on us.” Why is this prayer improper? Answer: The following is based on a taped shiur of HaGaon HaRav Yoshe Ber Soloveitchik, z”l: Animals and humans are treated differently by Hashem. Animals aren’t obligated to act in a certain manner. G-d sustains animals without any regard to their morality. Life for animals is the result of an act of kindness by G-d. Human beings are not granted such grace. They have goals to achieve and standards that must be maintained. Let us imagine a worker hired by the hour to complete a speci c tas n the middle of the job, he says to his employer, “ ’m leaving, pay me for the entire job.” No employer would honor his request.

simchas hachaim. either lived long enough to see dorei doros, but they were ultimately zocheh to an exponential return on their investment. Their four children merited to produce nearly forty grandchildren, and those grandchildren continue to do likewise. But I am getting ahead of myself. The exact details of that nocturnal levayah have long since faded from my memory. However, one poignant story shook me to the core of my being – and remains with me still. As our beloved aunt, a sister-in-law of the nifteres, recounted the tale with a gleam in her eye and unmistakable excitement in her voice, all of us stood in awe and reverence, absorbing its message. She had suddenly awoken from a deep sleep in the wee hours of the previous night, understandably startled but at the same time surprisingly calm. And on that dark night of the funeral, she shared with us her remarkable dream from the night before. Her brother, our beloved Uncle Avram, had appeared to her, wearing his finest clothes and sporting a broad, oyous smile. “Why are you so happy?” she inquired. “ ou look absolutely radiant.” “I ust heard,” he ecstatically replied, “that my beloved wife is coming to oin me ” She awoke with a start, the crystal-clear image of his beaming face still dancing in her mind. So when the phone rang early the

Celestial Reunion By Naama Klein It was an eerie and surreal experience, one I will likely never forget. The night seemed even darker than usual, inky black and moonless. Undeterred, we shuffled along, a quivering mass of humanity, united in our love, determined to participate in this final ourney. he flight from ew ork had arrived mere hours before, and the holiness of the land precluded waiting until morning. So there we were, her relatives and friends weeping softly and grieving deeply, as we escorted our beloved sister-in-law, aunt, mother and grandmother to her hallowed resting place. We were devastated by the tragic loss of such a wonderful and special person – so dear and cherished to us all – while still in the prime of her life. Her incomparable husband, Avram, with his ever-present smile and twinkle in his eyes, had departed this world several years before, a victim of the same insidious machalah. They had married young, as if they somehow had a premonition that their beautiful lives and relationship would be cut short, leaving their loved ones bereft and uncomprehending. Together they raised a magnificent family of fine bnei Torah, sincere and emesdik like their parents with the same trademark

Israel Real Estate Insider To Tour U.S. As the Israeli real estate market continues to heat up and investors look towards Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and all around the country for the opportunity to cash in or nd the home of their dreams, Shia Getter, author of the recently published Everything You Need to Know about Buying Real Estate in Israel will tour the U.S. to offer private consultations. According to Getter, who has decades of experience consulting buyers and managing properties, the biggest mistake customers make is coming into a deal uninformed. This lack of knowledge motivated him to write his book. “Real Estate is a whole different ballgame in Israel and one where it’s all too easy to get taken advantage of,” Getter says. “Our goal is to inform potential buyers to the extent that they will be able to make the best possible

decisions – ones that can help save hundreds of thousands of dollars.” The book, which was recently released by Feldheim Publishers, offers a review of all the key issues, such as identifying the best projects, managing the confusing process of securing a mortgage, and knowing what issues require legal counsel and where buyers can go it alone. While in the U.S., Getter will hold meetings in Teaneck on February 11, the Five Towns on February 12 and Miami on February 24. Getter will be available to advise potential buyers on hich pro ects are best for their speci c needs and budgets and what pitfalls to avoid as they move ahead in the process. o nd out more or to arrange a one-on-one meeting with Getter, contact mail@thegettergroup.com or visit www.thegettergroup.com.

In Memoriam Lea Goodman: A Tzaddekes In Our Time By Miriam Schiffman My family was blessed to know Lea Goodman, a”h, a tzaddekes in our time. Lea was a devoted and dedicated rebbetzin in Woodridge, New York, who quietly and humbly performed mitzvahs and chesed 24/7. She had both inner and outer beauty but was modest in her bearing. Her hachnassas orchim, her assistance to anyone in need, reflected her determination to help Klal Yisrael in all ways. On a personal note, Lea had a deep interest in my well being and would regularly call to ascertain that we were well. She would not end a con-

versation with me without some chizuk and a d’var Torah that would always carry me until the next phone call. There is not a member of my family who does not have a personalized crocheted scarf from Lea – even our newest grandson. Despite the declining state of her health, she made sure our grandson’s recent shalom zachor included an enormous sleeve of delectable wafers. Even more emotional for us was that this woman of valor had made sure a bottle of wine with her heartfelt wishes written on the label arrived at the baby’s

pidyon haben. Lea was already in olam haba when the bottle of wine was opened. She was still performing mitzvahs, only now from shamayim. She called me a week before her petirah. As always, she blessed me and wished me all good things. There is a great void in our hearts and in this world, now that Lea is no longer among us. What is certain is that her righteous family will follow in her footsteps and carry on the mitzvah of tikkun olam. May her neshamah have an aliyah.

Gordon Zacks, Republican Jewish Coalition Co-founder, Dies Gordon Zacks, a founder of the Republican Jewish Coalition and an unofficial adviser to George H.W. Bush, died following a brief illness. He was 80. Zacks, a businessman, was among the co-founders of the RJC in 1985. For Bush, as vice president and president, Zacks served as an unofficial adviser and confidant on Israel-U.S. relations, the Middle East peace process,

Soviet and Ethiopian Jewry, as well as the political landscape of the American Jewish community. Bush said in a statement, “Barbara and I were deeply saddened to learn that our dear friend Gordon Zacks has passed. We are saddened because he was one of my staunchest and earliest political supporters, and both a trusted and respected advisor on our critically important relationship with the state of

Israel. I leaned on Gordy frequently, and valued his advice.” Zacks was board chairman and CEO of his family’s business, R.G. Barry Corp., for 25 years until 2004, after which he was named the company’s non-executive board chairman. He held the latter post until his death. (JTA)

Values And Behavior Of A Superman In The Body Of A Clark Kent By Rabbi Aaron I. Reichel, Esq. I’ve had the privilege and pleasure of writing about members of my family who played important roles in changing the course of American Jewish His-

But my father-in-law, who just passed away, is no less heroic a figure, though no book has immortalized him – yet.

of his parents and in many ways reached the highest level of other traditional Jews who had the benefit of the best Jewish education from childhood to postgraduate rabbinical studies. An earlier Abraham was known in the Bible to invite guests to his tent, from every direction. But this Abraham did something else. If he would find an animal with a broken leg, he would bring it into his home, heal it, and then set it free. Birds, cats, dogs, it could be any living creature with any problem, but note that every solution was implemented with no expectation of any benefit in return. In the Bible, Moses was singled out for once having observed a fellow Jew being beaten unfairly by a taskmaster, and for physically intervening to save him. But the Abram who was just taken from us was known, throughout his years in the Soviet Union, to rescue total strangers who would have otherwise beaten each other to a pulp in their drunken stupor. Abram would see total strangers fighting, and then rush over, with a rush of adrenalin, to separate them even

Letters To The Editor Authority builds not just a few apartments but entire new neighborhoods in the territories, nobody says a word. The canceled exhibition would have highlighted the 3,000 year-old Jewish presence in the Land of Israel – a fact that might upset the entire basis for the international community’s constant pressure on Israel to withdraw from those historically Jewish lands. In an honest negotiating process, that would not be a problem; historical facts would be weighed along with other factors in considering the competing claims.

Whither Modern Orthodoxy? Deafening Silence

I was pleasantly surprised by your Jan. 31 editorial "Who Speaks for Modern Orthodoxy?” – especially given the silence you referred to on the part of the OU and the RCA concerning inroads being made into the Modern Orthodox community by proponents of the oxymoron called “Open Orthodoxy.” What is most interesting regarding that movement’s latest deviation from normative Orthodoxy is that in the past, movement leaders would hide behind the mantra of "avu shteit” – where in the Shulchan Aruch is it prohibited? – when questioned about their practices. But this time is different. In discussing the exemption of women from the mitzvah of tefillin – and referring to a scenario where a woman feels she would like to go beyond what is required by the letter of the law and don tefillin – the Rema (Aruch Chaim, volume 1, 38:3) states that we are "mochin b'yadan" – that we must protest in the event of such circumstances. Such unambiguous terminology leaves us with no doubt as to how halacha views this unfortunate practice. Your call for the RCA and the OU to end their deafening silence could not be more appropriate. Joey Aron Brooklyn, NY

Shocking Inaction

Kudos to The Jewish Press for speaking out in your wonderful editorial “Who Speaks for Modern Orthodoxy?” The silence of the major Orthodox groups you mentioned – the very groups that should be setting standards and criticizing the self-appointed authorities – is shocking. This inaction has resulted in the dangerous perception that Modern Orthodoxy has no standards and that any rabbi who has a popular following can decide when and how to make major departures from longstanding Orthodox practice. I have no doubt that Rav Soloveitchik, as he did in his lifetime, would have spoken against the outliers’ drift toward Conservative Judaism in their embrace of non-halachic conversions, interdenominational dialogue, and women rabbis (among other troubling developments). As was pointed out in the editorial, only the RCA, the OU and Yeshiva University have the standing and the influence to stanch the drift. Robert Markowitz Brooklyn, NY

Editorial Continued from p.7

Continued from p.7 tific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) had canceled a planned exhibition on the Jewish presence in the Land of Israel, on the grounds that it could undermine current negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority. The decision is, of course, a slap in the face to Israel and Jews everywhere. Yet there is a certain peculiar logic to UNESCO’s decision. The current Israel-PA negotiating process seems to be based on the notion that the Judea-Samaria territories belong to the Palestinian Arabs, no questions asked. That’s why every time Israel builds a few apartments in those areas, the international community screams about “illegal settlements.” Yet when the Palestinian

The Rav On Women Wearing Tefillin

“Who Speaks for Modern Orthodoxy?” was on target, especially in its recognition of the silence of the OU, the RCA, and the roshei yeshiva of YU. I’d like to share a story about women wearing tefillin that involved Rabbi Yosef Dov Soloveitchik, recounted by Rabbis Aryeh and Dov Frimer in their article “Women’s Prayer Services – Theory and Practice” in the Winter 1998 issue of Tradition: R. Soloveitchik believed he had good reason to doubt that greater fulfillment of mitzvot motivated many of these women, as illustrated in the following story, related to us by R. Yehuda Kelemer, former rabbi of the Young Israel of Brookline, Massachusetts. During the mid-1970s, one of R. Kelemer’s woman congregants at the Young Israel of Brookline was interested in wearing a tallit and tzitzit during the prayer services. After R. Kelemer had expressed to her his hesitations about the matter, she approached R. Soloveitchik – who lived in Brookline – on the matter. The Rav explained that in light of the novelty of the action, it needed to be adopted gradually. Accordingly, he suggested that she first try wearing a talit without tzitzit (which is, of course, allowed for women.) The Rav asked the woman to return to him after three months, at which time they would discuss the matter further. When the two met once again, she described to R. Soloveitchik the magnificent nature of her religious experience in wearing the tallit. The Rav pointed out to the woman that wearing a tallit without tzitzit lacked any halachically authentic element of mitzvah. It was obvious, therefore, that what generated her sense of “religious high” was not an enhanced kiyyum hamitzvah, but something else. Under such circumstances, the Rav maintained, wearing a tallit was an inappropriate use of the mitzvah. Consequently, the Rav forbade the woman from wearing a tallit with tzitzit. Jack Lieberman (Via E-Mail)

the talks is the potential of chaos. Does Israel want a third intifada?” A remarkable formulation by any measure. But this past weekend he went even further. Speaking at the Munich Security Conference about what he saw as the dangers inherent in the failure of Israeli-Palestinian talks, Mr. Kerry said: “The risks are high for Israel. People are talking about boycott. That will intensify in the case of failure. Do they want a failure that then begs whatever may come in the form of a response from disappointed Palestinians and the Arab community?” An uproar quickly ensued, as Israeli officials charged Mr. Kerry with pushing Israel to make concessions to the Palestinians while blaming Israel as the recal-

citrant party in the negotiations. A State Department spokeswoman hurriedly tried to calm things down, stating that Mr. Kerry was only attempting to tell his audience what others are saying. But the idea that his audience – which included leaders and decision-makers from around the world who were gathered to debate global security and foreign policy issues –needed to be advised that Israel is the target of a growing boycott movement is a bit much. It is increasingly evident that as the American secretary of state sees it, the key to peace is for Israel to pocket any and all of its negotiating positions and accept whatever the Palestinians put on the table. With Mr. Kerry reportedly poised to reveal his “framework” proposals, this becomes all the more troubling.

Supreme Court Hears From Orthodox Groups In Obamacare Suit Seven national Orthodox Jewish organizations joined a friend of the court brief filed on January 28 in the Supreme Court of the United States by the National Jewish Commission on Law and Public Affairs (COLPA) opposing the federal government’s position that the federal law protecting religious freedom may not be claimed by owners of corporations or for-profit businesses. The case before the high court concerns the legal validity of the requirement in the Obamacare law that for-profit corporations must pay for their employees’ insurance coverage for contraception services. The amicus curiae brief was written by Nathan Lewin, a leading constitutional law expert who has argued 28 cases in the Supreme Court and teaches a seminar on religious minorities in Supreme Court litigation at Columbia Law School. (For a link to the full text of the brief, see this editorial at JewishPress.com). The brief informed the court that though “the Jewish faith does not prohibit the financing of contraception,” the legal position taken by the administra-

tion threatens to curtail religious observances by American Jews inasmuch as Jewish law does not distinguish between and among different forms of business ownership Describing the recent experience of seven Brooklyn merchants who, out of religious conviction, posted signs in their stores barring immodest dress, the brief noted that it made no difference to their religious observance whether the businesses were or were not operated as corporations. The Orthodox Jewish organizations that joined in COLPA’s brief were Agudas Harabbanim, Agudath Israel of America, National Council of Young Israel, Rabbinical Alliance of America, Rabbinical Council of America, Torah Umesorah, and The Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregation of America. In a statement Mr. Lewin said, “It is important to convey to the Supreme Court that a bad decision in these cases could have a very harmful effect on the religious observances of the American Jewish community. A unified Orthodox response to the threat was essential.” We heartily agree.

Adar 10 – March 1, 1349: The Black Death persecutions swept into the oldest Jewish community in Germany. The alderman of Worms sentenced the entire Jewish community to death by being burned at the stake. Rather than submit to rape and torture, many Jews set fire to their homes and perished inside. Five hundred and eighty Jews died.

following morning, and the tragic news was haltingly relayed, it came as no surprise to our dear aunt. Her beloved brother, from his exalted place in shamayim, had already informed her in the most wonderful possible way. In fact, after making some rudimentary calculations, she quickly discovered that she had awoken from her dream at the precise time that her much-loved sister-in-law had returned her

Reichel Continued from p.74 when both were bigger and brawnier than he was. He saved many noses from getting broken, limbs from getting shattered, and lives from being ended, by simply following the Biblical injunction of not standing idly by the blood of another, lo ta’amod al dam re’ekha. He was like an action figure, a superman, except without the super powers, but only with adrenalin and a super sense of knowing right from wrong, and enforcing what was right when he could. Abram was a general in G-d’s army whether he was in uniform or not. In the section of the Bible that Jews all over the world read the first Shabbat after he passed away, all rose for the recitation of the 10 Commandments. When Abram had been a relatively “young” 70 years of age, in America at last, he didn’t know how to lead the services, but he did what he could, to the maximum. He saw people standing during parts of the services, but instead of just going with the flow and standing and sitting as the others did, he stood at attention, a soldier in G-d’s army, throughout the prayers. He was the only layperson in the entire synagogue to show such supreme respect to his Heavenly Commander. His talents transcended his work. He was multi-talented. He was an engineer who was grant-

guardian if the item was stolen, because he gave it to a competent person. However, the ruling is like Rav Yochanan, who obligates the initial guardian.” “Why is he liable?” asked Moshe. “What is Rav Yochanan’s rationale?” “This is a dispute between Abaye and Rava,” answered Rabbi Dayan. “Abaye explains that a person does not want his item entrusted with a third party. Thus, the initial guardian was inherently negligent in handing it over to another person. Rava, however, explains that although it was wrong to hand the item over to another person, this does not constitute negligence and does not make him liable. Rather, the first guardian is liable because the owner can refuse to believe the oath of the second guardian that the item was stolen, so the concern of actual negligence remains.” “What is the difference between these two reasons?” asked Nachman. “There are three differences, situations in which the reliability of the second person is not an issue,” replied Rabbi Dayan. “For example, if the owner commonly entrusts the second guardian with comparable items, he cannot say that he does not trust him; he would have to accept his oath. A second difference is when the initial guardian was also present at the time of the theft; he can swear about the theft to exempt himself. A third difference is our case, where there are witnesses to the event; there is no need here for an oath by the second guardian.” “The halacha is in accordance with Rava’s rationale,” concluded Rabbi Dayan. “Thus, Yossi is exempt from the theft, as any other unpaid guardian [shomer chinam]. despite the fact that he handed the item over to another person.” (C.M. 291:26; Shach 291:47) Rabbi Meir Orlian is a faculty member of the Business Halacha Institute, headed by HaRav Chaim Kohn, a noted dayan.

A thousand weeks of shiva and infinite recitals of the prescribed words of nechamah could not have had a greater impact than this simple story, recounted with such obvious love and joy. All of us returned to our respective homes and lives, buoyed by the image of the magnificent reunion that was simultaneously taking place in Heaven between two unique souls that were destined to forever be united. The dark night no longer held any fear or concern; instead, it heralded a bright and glorious tomorrow. ed patents for bringing new ideas into the world; he painted, published poetry, played piano, composed piano compositions without formal training in this skill; was probably the only person in the Steinway documentary “Note by Note” who played on a non-Steinway piano, as a Steinway piano was filmed being brought into our house for our son, Raphy, to play. Abram Kanevsky also inspired our comparably eidel 21-year-old daughter, Ariella, to continue to play, to this day, ever so beautifully. He once said to Isabella, his daughter, “You are so busy, you should cross me off the list of people you have to take care of.” Of course, he was always at the top of the list, along with everyone else in our immediate family. Now he is at the top of another list, for Yizkor. He was a model of a man, and he set an example that no man – or woman – can easily replicate. He had been born in Dnepropetrovsk, the childhood home of the last and most legendary Lubavitcher Rebbe, from when the future rebbe was 5. The same way that so many people felt comforted by the blessings and prayers of this most charismatic and influential Lubavitcher Rebbe, so did we always feel that when grandpa dyedushke prayed for something good to happen, it would happen. We felt he was on the same spiritual height as a tzadik. We can only hope and pray that his soul will continue to pray from on high, so effectively. May his memory be a continuing blessing, and a continuing inspiration to us all.

Israeli Scholars In The Left’s Cross Hairs (Continued from Front Page)

the many alleged transgressions assigned to it by its libelers, but a boycott against Israeli academics was warranted because the academic establishment itself is complicit in Zionism’s excesses and a core element of the bemoaned occupation, oppression, and denial of Palestinian self-determination. This fatuous notion, in fact, is one of the core principles of the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI), articulated in its “Academic Freedom or Academic Privilege: In defense of the Academic Boycott of Israel,” which suggests that “Israeli universities…are part and parcel of the prevailing ideology that accepts and treats the political regime in all its aspects – the military, the intelligence agencies, the government – as a benign feature of the social-political landscape.” Moreover, in the post-colonial gibberish that characterizes the language of victimhood, it is academics themselves who facilitate and perpetuate the unjust occupation, since, in the PACBI’s view, “academia is, by and large, Israel’s most effective propaganda tool to colonize people’s minds and falsely project the state as a normal country on the world stage despite its violations of international law, and its occupation, apartheid and colonialism.”

A

t the MLA annual conference in Chicago last month, delegates considered a resolution to call on the State Department “to contest Israel’s arbitrary denials of entry to Gaza and the West Bank by U.S. academics who have been invited to teach, confer, or do research at Palestinian universities.” The panel discussion which addressed that issue was called “Academic Boycotts: A Conversation about Israel and Palestine,” and included, as one of its panelists, Omar Barghouti, the co-founder of the PACBI. His view is that Israeli academia not only has a moral obligation to right the wrongs in Israel, but it is a co-enabler, if not co-conspirator, in the continued occupation and oppression of Palestinians. “For decades,” Barghouti has written, “Israeli academic institutions have been complicit in Israel’s colonial and racist policies. Funded by the government, they have consistently and organically contributed to the military-security establishment, and, therefore, to perpetuating its crimes, its abuse of Palestinian human rights and its distinct system of apartheid.” Ignoring the highly visible contingent of Israeli academics on the far left who ferociously denounce the same Zionism, occupation, and oppression that are Barghouti’s regular targets of attack, he nonetheless contends that academics do not merely accept Israeli policies affecting the Palestinians, their research and scholarship helps perpetuate the status quo. “Not only do most Israeli academics defend or justify their state’s colonial narrative,” Barghouti suggests, “they play a more active role in the process of oppression.” Why an academic boycott? Because, Barghouti says, a boycott “directly targets the academy itself as one of the pillars of this oppressive order.” And the language of the ASA resolution that led to a vote to boycott Israeli academic institutions contained the nearly identical sentiment, namely, the ASA’s decision was based on a recognition of “the extent to which Israeli institutions of higher education are a party to state policies that violate human rights.” Making academics responsible for, even complicit in, the machinations of the current government, and justifying a boycott as a result – as if Israeli academics, in this instance, even have the collective power to influence and change the status of the occupation and other aspects of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict – is normally an anathematic proposition for professors. Besides applying a perverse double standard to Israeli academics by making them liable for the actions of their government, and punishing them for this perceived liability, the idea that universities in Israel are any more influential in shaping government policy, administering the nation’s laws, or overseeing its defense is itself a radical departure from what is ever blamed on the university and the people who comprise it. The ASA also made central to its academic boycott the idea that Israeli universities conduct research to support Israel’s military, and that this research contributes to the continuing plight of the Palestinians.

“This complicity has been extensively documented,” the ASA website reads, “and manifests through direct research and production of military technologies,” including the “development of weapon systems used by the occupation army in committing grave violations of human rights.” As the academic boycotters might have noticed, and should know had they not been experiencing paroxysms of self-righteous indignation toward Israel, American universities, like their Israeli counterparts, rely on, and frequently accept, billions of dollars of defense-applied contracts from the Department of Defense – specifically, between 2000 and 2006 the total number of contracts to universities rose from 5,887 to 52,667, with $46.7 billion granted to universities in 2006 alone. In fact, many of the universities in which some of the foremost defamers of Israel teach have benefited from the largesse of the Department of Defense, and could, by the same logic being applied to Israeli universities, be condemned for facilitating and contributing to the creation of the military/industrial complex that many on the left decry as emblematic of U.S. imperialism, colonialism, and militarism, similar to how Israel is maligned for the same offenses. Those anti-Israel American scholars, then, would find themselves boycotted, even though they obviously do not share the ideology of an imperialistic, hegemonic United States. David Lloyd, a pro-boycott speaker who spoke on the MLA panel, is a professor at UC Riverside, part of the California university system that in 2009 received $766,179,039 in defense-related research funding. That embarrassing detail about his own university system aside, Lloyd is still content with denouncing any connection with Israeli universities and the country’s military. “By endorsing the boycott,” he wrote, “we withhold our consent from collaboration with academic institutions that are part and parcel of Israel’s ongoing occupation, furnishing its technical infrastructure and expanding onto stolen lands.” Stanford University, as another example, which in 2011 received nearly $72 million from the Department of Defense, is home to Joel Beinin, professor of history and Middle East history. Beinin, a self-proclaimed Marxist, is a rabid anti-Zionist who singles out Israel for criticism of its varied and frequent transgressions, all the while excusing the social and political defects of the neighboring Arab states who surround it and blaming the pathologies of the Middle East on Western imperialism and the continuing colonial impact of the U.S.’s proxy in the Levant, Israel. In fact, in those rare instances when Beinin is even willing to admit to the existence of Islamic terrorism, he is quick to find its root cause with its victims, not its perpetrators. Terrorism, Beinin has wildly suggested, is a “product of postcolonial anxieties about U.S. global supremacy, and the regional dominance of the U.S. alliance [with Israel] in the Middle East,” not, of course, the product of a jihadist impulse of barbaric madmen seeking to impose their own form of Islamic imperialism in the Middle East and in the West as well. Beinin’s intent is to make any defensive actions on the part of Israel seem an overreaction, regardless of how many of its citizens have been murdered or how many threats against its very existence have been proclaimed. “According to both Ehud Barak and Ariel Sharon,” Beinin wrote, dismissively, “Israel is engaged in a war despite the spectacularly unequal military balance in the conflict,” as if a nation reacting to unprovoked attacks on its citizens is compelled to insure that its enemy is equally armed and that the fight will be “fair” – something only a college professor, from the comfort and safety of his Stanford office, could possibly consider. Sharing Beinin’s worldview is Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s unctuous Noam Chomsky. MIT, like Stanford, has been very successful in attracting Department of Defense funding, $876,792,510 in 2009 alone, which has seemingly not impeded Chomsky from making his views widely known about how atrocious his country and its military are. Chomsky, whom Harvard’s Alan Dershowitz has called the “godfather” of anti-Israel thought, when he is not lecturing on the evils of American capitalism and its ruthless lust for “empire” busies himself by blaming Israel for every problem of the Middle East’s

highly dysfunctional, authoritarian regimes. Like other anti-Zionists in the West and in the Arab world, Chomsky does not even recognize the legitimacy of Israel, believing its very existence to be a moral transgression against an indigenous people. Chomsky draws the perverse parallel between Israelis and Nazis so frequently in his writings that, to paraphrase the wry Professor Edward Alexander, he would be rendered nearly speechless if he were unable to use the epithet of Nazi against Israel in every sentence he utters. “Israel has tried killing, beating, gassing, mass arrests, deportation, destruction of houses, curfews and other forms of harsh collective punishment,” Chomsky wrote, and yet, even in the face of this hideous, Nazi-like behavior by Israel, “nothing has succeeded in enforcing obedience or eliciting a violent response.” In 2011, the University of Michigan was awarded almost $15 million in defense contracts, which ought to have been upsetting to the school’s conspiracy-frenzied Juan Cole, who routinely takes swipes at Israeli and American defense policies while simultaneously excusing Arab complicity for violence or terror. In fact, according to Cole, it is the militancy of the West that causes the endemic problems in the Middle East, and makes America guilty for its moral and financial support of Israel. “When Ariel Sharon sends American-made helicopter gunships and F-16s to fire missiles into civilian residences or crowds in streets,” Cole wrote in 2004, “as he has done more than once, then he makes the United States complicit in his war crimes and makes the United States hated among friends of the Palestinians. And this aggression and disregard of Arab life on the part of the proto-fascist Israeli Right has gotten more than one American killed, including American soldiers.” There is, of course, no mention in Cole’s fantasies about why American or Israeli soldiers would be involved in military actions in the first place, affirming the view that it is Western imperialism and oppression that disrupt and embroil the otherwise taciturn political state of the Arab world. At Harvard, which annually receives some $44 million of Defense Department funding, Sara Roy, a researcher at the University’s Center for Middle East Studies (CMES), has been an apologist for Hamas. She and Boston University professor Augustus Richard Norton co-authored an article for the Christian Science Monitor in which they conjured up the fantasy of a “New Hamas,” a benign political group the authors felt were deserving of recognition by Western diplomats. And in her own op-ed in the Monitor, she only started counting rockets lobbed into Israel from Gaza after, she said, Israel violated some illusory cease-fire of which apparently only she and the “new” Hamas were aware. In her view, it was only Israel’s defensive reaction to the attempted murder of its citizens that prompted Hamas rocket attacks from Gaza, nothing else.

T

hose who have criticized the decisions by the ASA and the MLA to call for academic boycotts against Israeli universities, did so, first, because academic boycotts are antithetical to the core principles upon which the university was founded. That is, suppressing the academic freedom of one country’s scholars, making it impossible for them to express their views or disseminate their scholarship, and banishing them from contact with other scholars defies what the university is supposed to stand for – among other things, an open and free exchange of ideas in an international “marketplace of ideas.” That alone is reason to reject calls for academic boycotts. But the current accusation made against Israeli scholars – which are not, tellingly, made against any other academics from any other country – that imputes a moral responsibility on Israeli academics for the political behavior of their government is particularly baleful. In this perverse assault on academic integrity, and even good sense, a whole nation of scholars is tarred with same brush of virulent anti-Israel activism, so that, as the British writer Howard Jacobson put it, “All are guilty by association with the heinous ideology of their country, that is to say, guilty by simple virtue of being Israelis.” Richard L. Cravatts, Ph.D., author of “Genocidal Liberalism: The University’s Jihad Against Israel & Jews,” is president of Scholars for Peace in the Middle East.

Torah & Psychological Insights Into Relationships

By Rabbi Simcha Feuerman, LCSW Chaya Feuerman, LCSW

When You Think Your Child Is Engaged To the Wrong Person (Part II) After the mazal tovs and excitement wear off, a nagging feeling begins to set in. Your child doesn’t seem to be happy and is sometimes tearful and overstressed. You notice certain behaviors in your future son or daughter-in-law that appear to be red flags. What can a parent do? To interfere or not to interfere? Are you ready for your child to blame and resent you for the rest of his or her life that you ruined a chance for happiness? Last week, we began discussing red flags and behaviors to look out for. To briefly review, last week we discussed (1) Socially inappropriate and disrespectful behavior; and (2) Controlling, Needy or Jealous Behavior.

Given the severity and consequence of the decision, people should also consider involving a rav as well. While there are times when the degree of the problem is overly stigmatized and exaggerated, there are also times when serious problems are minimized by well-intentioned advisors who do not understand the true extent of the problem. As we mentioned last week, having noted some of these concerns, of course there are always counter-considerations and one red flag cannot be the sole source of your decision. Furthermore, it really should not be your decision at all, but rather the chosson or kallah’s decision, which we will discuss in greater detail later in this series.

Other Red Flags Dishonesty. While not everyone is always truthful, there are lies, and then there are lies. If a chassan or kallah is dishonest about a major life event or condition, this is a sign of disrespect toward the other and/or lack of character. If the person was caught in the lie and did not own up to it, it is even more problematic. However, even if disclosed voluntarily, waiting until after the engagement to reveal the truth must be taken as a serious breach of trust. High debt. If a person comes into a relationship with high credit card debt, it may very well be an indicator of an inability to manage impulses and live within a specific reality. Married life begins with so many challenges today, including finances. A large amount of credit card debt can be disastrous. Addictions and Major Mental Illness. People can change and addicts can recover, and everyone deserves a chance. This is true – in theory. However, would you want your child to marry someone with these issues? This type of circumstance requires careful assessment of the degree of the problem. The young couple first, and possibly the extended family (if the therapist and couple are in favor of this), should be involved in an in-depth exploration with a therapist who is well-versed in the particular addiction or disorder.

Orange Flags There also are issues that generate concern, but are not necessarily blazing red flags. Families Do Not Get Along. Some amount of familial tension is normal and the Gemara tells us there is no marriage without some quarrel (Kesubos 2a, Tosafos Layom). However, if there is a high degree of fighting and incompatibility amongst the in-laws and families, the couple is starting out at a disadvantage. If the discord is about deeply held beliefs and values, and not just whether there will be 3 pieces in the band or 4, then it is of even greater concern. The chassan or kallah has cold feet. Much of the time, cold feet is just normal anxiety, or abnormal anxiety within an acceptable range. However, when the chassan or kallah feels ambivalence or doubt as to whether or not he or she is attracted to the other person or ready to get married, that is a problem. Sometimes, fear creates a pattern of anxiety, hurt and mistrust on both sides that can interfere with the formation of a proper emotional bond. As difficult and irrational as this can be, the best stance for the side that does not have cold feet to take, is “We are not ready to move forward until you have worked out your issues and fears. And while it is inconvenient and perhaps costly, we are willing

FAMILY ISSUES

Chronicles of Crisis

IN OUR COMMUNITIES

Thought-Provoking Points of View “Home” Is Where The Heart Is… Dear Rachel, Some columns ago you ran a few interesting letters on the subject of aliyah. In the opinion of a highly respected Yerushalayim-based rabbi, it is better to live in chutz l’Aretz and have your heart in Eretz Yisrael than to live in the Holy Land and have your heart in chutz l’Aretz. Interpret as you wish Woman, Thy Name Is Vanity! Dear Rachel, I am writing regarding the kallah who asked her friends to display their affection for her at her wedding from afar (Chronicles, Dec. 13). She wanted to make sure no one would rumple her feathers, literally, so that she’d look picture-perfect on her big day. This brings to mind a girl I once knew who kept passing up on shidduchim on account of a boy’s hair color. Red or any hint of it (e.g., auburn’ish, strawberry blond, etc.) was out of the running. Women! A “Tough Talk” Advocate Dear Rachel, In Chronicles of Jan. 3, a woman wrote to you about her frustration on the job. As a nursing mother, she needs to pump and store her milk during work hours. Her employer, while accommodating, is behaving like a male chauvinist. In my humble opinion, Rachel, you were much too mild in your response to this woman. Her boss has the gall to drop a comment like “that’s what I call

milking the system” and all you can suggest is that this may be his way of unwinding or his attempt to be nice after giving her flack all day? I would have advised her to tell him to take it home to his wife. I’ll bet he wouldn’t dare talk to her the way he talks to his hired help. Men! Honor, Honoring And Honorable Dear Rachel, I’d like to elaborate on your answer to “See No Easy Cure,” the person who wrote about a marriage that is busting up due to the husband’s self-absorption and obsession with kavod. The writer says most of us agree that it is “better” to be a doctor than a nurse, or to drive a BMW instead of a Honda. She goes on to say that these are normal and acceptable beliefs. Well, maybe by those shallow enough to attribute “bekovod���dik” to people of material acquisitions. Without a doubt, a doctor’s profession is a prestigious one, but what does this have to do with kavod? There are arrogant doctors with terrible bedside manners and physicians who are as humble as they come. I also know people who can afford to own three BMWs yet choose to be seen driving a Honda. Honor me not Dear Honor me not, Your points are well taken. In clarification, however, the word “honor” has various connotations. The author of “Kavod: The Hidden Lurking Menace Among Us” (Chronicles, Jan. 17) was referring to

We encourage women and men of all ages to send in their personal stories via e-mail to rachel@jewishpress.com or by mail to Rachel/Chronicles, c/o The Jewish Press, 4915 16th Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11204.

“honor” as in according special recognition to someone. The Yiddish word bekovod’dik denotes “honorable,” a distinction applicable to a person as well as to a career or position. One can have an honorable career yet shy away from honor (kavod) or being honored. Callous Or Clueless…? Dear Rachel, As I was reading the column about the scourge of kavod, my mind took me back to last winter and an embarrassing incident that pained me both physically and emotionally. It happened in Boro Park on a late Shabbos morning when I was returning from a bikur cholim visit. The streets were covered with a new dusting of snow that hid some ice patches that had formed as result of an earlier rainfall. About a block and a half away from my house I suddenly slipped and fell. Maybe it was the position I was in, or perhaps it was due to the fact that I’m no youngster and not of slim build, but somehow I couldn’t manage to pick myself up off the ground. It also didn’t help that there was nothing on either side of me close enough to grasp for support. As I looked around helplessly for someone to give me a hand, I was relieved to see clusters of men apparently coming home from shul after davening. But instead of stopping to see if I was okay or needed help, they all walked right by me as if I was invisible to them! Thank G-d it wasn’t long before a lone black-hatted bochur stopped to help me and even offered to see me home to make sure I made it safely to my door. I was enormously grateful to him and just want to say that this young man was in my eyes more honorable than any of the “mature” men who found it beneath their station to offer help to a woman. Disappointed in Mankind Dear Disappointed, The young man who came to your aid without hesitation knew it was the right thing to do, whereas the men who chose to pay you no heed were either ignoramuses or knew better but were callously unwilling to be caught in an act others might have disapproved of. Shomer negiah (the prohibition of physical contact between a man and a woman) does not apply in a case of pikuach nefesh. Moreover, a male who does not come to the aid of a female in a circumstance such as yours is considered to be a pious fool (chassid shoteh).

13 Things To Know About Dating The Second Time Around By Alana Fine 1. Set In Stone Somehow when we were teenagers and dating for the first time, everything about our life was flexible. We could pick up and relocate, switch jobs, date someone without a job, and be carefree about future plans. Now after having had children and spouses, we can’t relocate, our jobs are fixed, the way we parent our kids is set, and there isn’t much flexibility. People either fit into your life as it is now or they don’t. 2. Step Out Of Your Comfort Zone It helps to be flexible and step out of your comfort zone because you never know where your shidduch will come from. Be open to attending singles events, potluck mixed meals, new shuls, new restaurants, using a shadchan, putting your profile (and picture) on dating websites, and going on Facebook divorced groups like “Frum Divorce” and “Frum Divorced Singles.” It’s important to make as many connections as possible. Just because you didn’t think you were compatible with someone you dated doesn’t mean his or her friend won’t be perfect for you. So be friendly and let your dates see you for the person that you are. After a date gone wrong, it’s important that neither person walk away feeling dejected.

3. How Do I Do My Research? With the advent of Facebook, it’s so easy to check someone out. I do a search, look at our mutual friends and message the ones that I’m closest to with a request for information. If the person isn’t on Facebook, and I was set up through Saw You At Sinai or a shadchan, I start by calling his references. I ask those references for names of other people who may know him (or her). It helps if you have a rabbi or friends who have contacts in the neighborhood he is from. It’s important to determine if this person is stable and has healthy relationships with others. Be careful of he said/she said information. Each side in a divorce has a story, and you have to sift through what you hear to make the best judgment possible. There is no fast and easy rule to determine the truth. However, if you’re still confused and not sure what to believe, you can start by feeling someone out over the phone or giving it a date or two to see. 4. Is He Date-able? If someone has cheated, dealt with an addiction, was abusive, etc., should you automatically stay away? If you’re willing to be open, find out if that person has made strong efforts in therapy towards recovery. Are credible therapists backing him/her? Are there several years of recovery under his or her belt?

Alanna Fine lives in LA where she’s completing her MSW. She looks forward to no longer having the expertise in write dating articles. She can be reached at 2ndtimearound4me@gmail.com.

Are you taking a risk? Yes, but life is a risk and anyone can fall. You don’t know where anyone will be five years from now. With the proper support services and a strong will, sometimes a person is capable of change. 5. Our Religious Levels Are Different Everyone has things he or she won’t compromise on religiously. If you’re willing to date someone who is traditional and growing, determine exactly what you can and can’t live without. You need to ask yourself if you can focus on the content of your date’s character instead of questioning his or her religious level. Can you appreciate that person without pushing him or her to grow at your pace? I believe that being mutually understanding and respectful of someone else can be grounds for a healthy relationship. 6. Just Divorced If you are dating a newly divorced person (just got the get, with or without the civil), be prepared to hear a lot of venting about the ex. You will most probably hear about every issue in the marriage, explicit details about the civil divorce case – and a lot of negativity. It doesn’t matter how long someone has been separated or has a get without a civil divorce. There is something about the legal paperwork and the final proceedings that brings back all of the feelings surrounding a di-

FAMILY ISSUES From The Desk Of Devorah Adler Dear Devorah, When my five-year-old daughter gets sick, she refuses to stay in bed and rest. I entertain her with games but then get very little housework done. Can you recommend some ways I can get her to rest more? Yocheved in Kew Gardens Dear Yocheved, Your daughter isn’t trying to annoy you; she just wants to feel your comforting and nurturing presence. Being confined to bed probably feels punitive to her. She is obviously bored and lonely, so you need to fill up the hours with activities that will keep her in bed. Here are some ideas: Give your daughter a toy doctor’s or nurse’s kit, an egg timer and an infant monitor. Put the parent’s monitor in your kitchen and show your daughter how it works. Tell her to go into the kitchen and listen for your voice. This will reassure her that she can speak to you while she is resting in bed. It may be somewhat in-

Fine Continued from p.F2 vorce. Although there are several exceptions, in general I would suggest allowing a person to heal for at least six months to a year after the civil divorce and get are finalized before agreeing to a date. A year is a good amount of time to transition and gain some distance and detachment from an ex-spouse. Hopefully he or she will have used the time to reflect, do some inner work, and process the marriage and divorce. 7. It’s Not Exclusive Till You Say So Dating the second time around basically means that anything is fair game. Your job is to put yourself out there and to be present in a relationship. That means opening yourself up to the person you’re dating, being vulnerable and letting him or her see you for the person you are. If someone values your worth and is crazy about you, he will focus on you to the exclusion of all others. Each person you date provides you with valuable learning lessons, to learn more about yourself and what you’re looking for. 8. Slow It Down When a person is used to being in a marital relationship, it can be easy to see a dating partner in the role of a spouse and get comfortable very quickly. It’s easy to get swept up in the excitement of a new relationship and want to be together all the time. When this happens, that excitement can fizzle out sooner than you think – especially with online dating. Many of my friends have experienced the intense two-week contact, and then never hear from the other person again. It’s really important to pace things out and give a relationship the time and space it needs to build. It’s important not to emotionally unload every issue onto the person you’re dating because the relationship doesn’t have the strength needed to weather any storm. It’s also important to maintain a level of privacy, because you honestly don’t know if you will end up with the person that you’re dating. It goes without saying that any information spoken about during a relationship should be kept private and not repeated all over town after a breakup. 9. It’s All About the Kids Sometimes the people we date have issues with our children. There are little hints they drop while we’re dating that should tip us off, but because we really like the person, we overlook them. One man I dated kept telling me I was forcing him to grow up and he wasn’t sure he was ready to be a stepfather. Look at your date’s reaction when you tell stories about your kids. See how he or she reacts if you have to cancel a date because of a parenting emergency.

convenient, but for the next few days, do some housework early in the morning before she awakens and at night after she goes to sleep. Create a diary that she can use to keep track of her medicine, her meals and her daily activities. Fold a dozen sheets of pastel colored paper in half, staple them in the middle, paste her picture on the cover, and with magic markers write, “Chava’s Get Well Story Book.” Half of the “story book” is the diary and the other half is to be used as a coloring book. If you have one, bring a rocking chair into her bedroom. Give her a tray on which she can color, write, read books and play with puzzles and games. While she plays, sit in your rocking chair and catch up on whatever suits you. Play some soothing music. When she gets tired, put her on your lap, cuddle her and let her enjoy the soothing rhythm of the rocking chair while you sing songs to her. Then put her back in her bed and tell her you need to make lunch and she can talk to you on her monitor but needs to stay in bed. Make sure you ask if the person you’re dating wants more children. It may sound like a given but I’ve encountered men who have had their kids and didn’t want any more. It’s also important to find out what your date’s children are like and how the dynamics would work if you combined families. 10. Emotional Stability Men who don’t have their life in order, a.k.a. are not emotionally stable, may or may not find stability anytime soon. You are blessed if you find that out sooner rather than later. Some signs of emotional instability: he doesn’t have an apartment or regular place to live, he’s in between jobs, can’t stick to his decisions, makes grandiose statements and changes his desires daily. Some examples: “Let’s move to Europe,” “I think I’ll change careers and be a _____” “I want to blow money on _____.” You get the point. He consistently doesn’t follow through and do what he has promised to do, and talks big. His feelings for you may change rapidly and go from being crazy in love with you to having serious doubts. Remember, this isn’t about you. The person you’re dating needs time to get his life in order. There may always be someone desperate enough to settle for this type of person, but you need to ask yourself, why would you be willing to tolerate this person and stay in the relationship? Introspection is key here. 11. Self-Sabotagers If someone has a history of childhood abuse or severe dysfunction, chances are, he or she will continue choosing people who perpetuate dysfunction – that is why therapy is important. Sometimes the person he or she dates will share similarities with a dysfunctional parent. For example, if David had to parent his mother growing up, he may seek out a woman who is incapable of caring for herself. Two men I previously dated, both of whom had experienced childhood trauma, told me that I was the healthiest person they had ever dated. That was a message. When a person is comfortable in a dysfunctional relationship, he will be calm with a healthy person, but eventually sabotage things. Both men eventually self-sabotaged our relationships.People who self-sabotage feel that they don’t deserve to be happy or loved. When someone shows them love or vocalizes it, they cannot deal with the feelings. Counseling can help a person make healthier relationship choices and gain self-worth. 12. Let’s Take a Break Certain men/women will say they need a dating break because they’re “not ready to be in a relationship or they need time to get their lives in order before continuing to date.” If these statements are true and not just an excuse to end the relationship, these people probably shouldn’t have started dating in the first

Turn on the egg timer for ten minutes and tell her when the bell goes off, lunch will be ready. Make her lunch appealing by cutting up sandwiches into snack size bites, use pretty bowls for her soup, vegetables and fruit salad and add some potato chips and punch. Bring her lunch to her on a tray, along with your own so you can keep her company. After lunch is naptime for your daughter. Now you can get more housework done. When your daughter wakes from her nap, give her the doctor’s kit and her dolls and tell her, “I think your dolls are not feeling well. They need you to take care of them.” While she tends to her “sick” dolls, fold some laundry and enjoy your rocking chair again. Express interest in what she’s doing and give her your admiration. Hug her and say, “I just know you will feel much better tomorrow. I love you so much. You take such good care of your dolls.” Give your daughter a gold star in her story book for every 3 hours she stays in bed. When she has accumulated a dozen gold stars, reward her with a new box of crayons or a toy. When your husband comes home, remind him to comment to her on what a good girl she was to stay in bed. If there are older children in the house, ask them to make get-well cards for their sister. She will feel so cherished and loved. place. However, many people will jump right back into the dating scene the day after they have requested a break. This means they can handle dating, just not dating you. Requesting a break doesn’t usually lead to anything more than either dating again at a later time with an eventual breakup, or a break with a soon-to-be followed break-up, but it feels more comfortable to just ask for a break. 13. The End It’s always fascinating to observe the way a person treats someone at the end of a relationship. That person could have been the biggest mensch ever during the dating period, but when it’s over, somehow the person ending things shows you a shocking side. When ending the relationship, it’s not necessary to list everything you found wrong in the other person. You can just say that you don’t think things will work out. What I personally don’t appreciate is closed communication during the dating period. If someone didn’t think things would work out, he should have brought up those issues while we were dating. Choosing to let issues pile up and then breaking up with someone isn’t very constructive because once it’s over, it’s over. Second time around dating can be more than frustrating. It can feel like someone’s repeatedly taking a sledgehammer to your heart. The rejection and emotional investment involved with dating and singles events can be overwhelming. What I have learned is that I need to give a relationship everything I’ve got because second chances are rare once a relationship ends. I’ve also learned to not tolerate disrespectful behavior. If someone is sporadic or inconsistent in his contact with me, I will bring it up. If nothing changes, I will break things off – out of respect for myself. I once commented during a lecture that so many guys are just looking to play and not get serious. The speaker responded, “You’re not looking for a guy, you’re looking for a husband.” He was right. Making general statements about all men or women does everyone a disservice. Those of us who have been divorced awhile often wonder why it has taken so long. I look back at how I was seven years ago when I first got divorced and see a completely different person in my mirror today. The lessons that I’ve learned about men, relationships and communication, the quality friendships I’ve built, the intimate time I’ve spent with my son, and the growth I’ve gone through are invaluable. I’ve also learned that you attract who you are, so it’s important to create the life that you want someone to join. I can only hope that we will look back on this time, hopefully soon, and know that it was all worth it. My fellow dating warriors, may you be blessed with awareness, openness, and perseverance. Know that I’m here to support you.

FAMILY ISSUES

Schonfeld Continued from p.F1 miliar with the feelings expressed above – paralyzing fear, difficulty breathing, dizziness, and nerves. But, while panic attacks are real and extreme, everyone experiences some sort of anxiety on a daily basis. The question is: how much is too much? As your child grows and learns more about the world, it is natural for him to be hesitant or fearful of new circumstances. In some ways, it is good if your child is afraid – it will make him more cautious and careful. He will take fewer risks that could be potentially dangerous. However, too much anxiety can be debilitating and detrimental. Because different fears are appropriate at different ages, a great way to assess the level of your child’s anxiety is to be aware of the stages: Preschool Separation anxiety, or a child’s difficulty in being apart from his parents, is not only typical, but developmentally normal for children in preschool. However, it is generally a transient experience and most children can be easily distracted from their anxiety. Fear of the dark is natural once your child hits the age of two or three. Using night-lights or glow in the dark stars to brighten the room should help your child overcome this fear. If your child refuses to go to sleep or wakes in terror because of the dark, this might be a sign of a larger issue. Kindergarten – Fifth Grade Generalized anxiety can sometimes manifest itself in children during the intermediate ages of 9 and 12. A child who worries excessively and obsessively about school performance, the state of the world, his health, and the health of his family members could be exhibiting signs of generalized anxiety disorder. Pay attention to whether his anxiety is controlling him or he is controlling it. Sixth Grade – High School Social Phobia is an anxiety disorder that can

Response to Last Week’s Chronicles of Crisis A “Flabbergasted Mom” doesn’t understand why her “adorable son” misbehaves despite the fact that she has had “in depth one-on-one discussions” with him and despite her attempts to “boost his self-esteem.” She now blames his behavior on “Asperger’s syndrome” based on a psychiatrist’s evaluation. If I could address the mother directly, I would say: There’s nothing wrong with your son. Most normal kids misbehave. The only reason they ever stop is because someone makes them stop. You have not made him stop, and so he doesn’t. What your son needs is not therapy or medication (they will likely compound the problem). What he needs is discipline. G.R.

emerge when children enter their teenage years. Often, children with social phobias will withdraw from social situations and refuse to participate in extracurricular activities. Sometimes, they will refuse to go to school and will only choose to speak to their parents or siblings. They may get very real headaches, stomachaches, or diarrhea on school days – but the pain comes from their brains, not their bowels. All Ages Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). PTSD involves anxiety and stress about traumatic events in one’s past. This disorder frequently occurs after violent personal assaults, such as mugging, domestic violence, terrorism, natural disasters, or accidents. Children who experienced an extremely disturbing event might subsequently develop generalized anxiety. PTSD is often triggered by sounds, smells, or sights that remind the sufferer of the trauma. Some symptoms of include: • Anger and irritability • Guilt, shame, or self-blame • Substance abuse • Depression and hopelessness • Feeling alienated and alone • Feelings of mistrust and betrayal • Headaches, stomach problems, chest pain Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). The New York Times defines obsessive-compulsive disorder as “an anxiety disorder in which people have thoughts, feelings, ideas, sensations (obsessions), or behaviors that make them feel driven to do something (compulsions).” Some examples of OCD are excessive hand-washing to ward off infection or repeatedly checking the locks on the door to ensure that they are secured. Children with OCD often recognize that their behavior is excessive, but cannot stop themselves from their compulsive actions. The Link Between Anxiety and Depression There is a connection between childhood anxiety and teenage depression. Many doctors say that prior to puberty, the equivalent of depression in children is anxiety. The same biochemical issues that children who experience childhood depression deal with are mostly like to lead to depression once they enter puberty. As a matter of fact, children who have anxiety are more likely to have teen depression. About half of depressed teenagers had a childhood anxiety disorder and of those teens who suffer from anxiety disorders and depression, 85% of them had their anxiety disorder first.

Parents: Be Part of the Solution Marianna Csoti, in her book, School Phobia, Panic Attacks, and Anxiety in Children, outlines the different ways that parents can help their children overcome anxiety: Do not speak about the anxiety in front of your children. Parents should avoid discussing their child’s worries in front of him. Hearing about his own problems can often cause more anxiety and result in his seeing the problems as larger than they are. Do not introduce your own worries. Parents should try to remove any unnecessary pressure from the child, as he needs to be protected from stress. Reassure your child. Your child should be told that his fears will not always be with him and that he will eventually feel better. Listen to your child’s anxieties. Allow your child to express his fears even if they seem silly to you. This does not mean that you have to “give in” to his every whim; rather you are showing him that you are aware of his suffering. Create a gentle start to the day. If your child struggles with going to school, wake him early in a gentle manner (with music or cuddles) allowing him time to adjust to the reality of going to school. Stick to regular routines. Even though the summers and vacations have their own schedules, sticking to the same bedtime and morning wake-up throughout the summer and school year will allow your child to feel more secure. Seek a professional opinion. Anxiety is a serious issue that cannot always be solved by a caring and capable parent. If you feel that your child’s anxiety is affecting you and your family, seek a professional opinion.

Re: Bringing Your Yiddishkeit To Life, 1-10-2014 Everything is a circle. People look at where they are on the circle. The trick is to be able to see the whole circle. Then it does not matter where you are on it, as the beginning is the end. If you travel on a Mobius strip, you see only one side of it. But you go from beginning to end, and see all of it, only a piece at a time. You need to reflect on all of it. Cut it down the middle lengthwise as many times as you want, make as many strips as you want, part it as many times as you want, it is still the same strip. It is like that. It is infinity, and is infinite. The entire creation glorifies God; man just does not see it entirely.

I have a great-aunt who never spoke of her time in the camps. Not to her children or grandchildren. She mentally distanced herself from the people she loved the most, most likely to protect them from the horrors and, of course, to try to eliminate the horrors from her memory. Today, in her nineties, she is locked in her mind with Alzheimer’s. Her son grew up with serious difficulties. Her daughter knows very little about her mother. It’s very sad for the family. They lost a beautiful vibrant young lady to Hitler’s concentration camps in the 1940’s. They lost so much of their mother due to the repression on the horrors and now, it’s too late.

TORAH

BY RABBI YEHOSHUA BLASS

Present, Yet Anonymous

O

ne of the most striking features of this week’s parsha is the absence of Moshe Rabbeinu’s name, an omission which occurs only once from the beginning of Sefer Shemos until Moshe’s death at the end of Sefer Devraim. The Ba’al HaTurim notes this omission and quotes the Zohar which attributes the absence to Moshe Rabbeinu’s quasi challenge to Hakadosh Baruch Hu in Parshas Ki Sisa to either forgive the nation or else “macheini na misifrecha asher kasavta - erase my name from the book which You have written.” The Ba’al HaTurim comments that even though the nation was forgiven and saved, the kelalah of a chacham must in some way be fulfilled – hence Moshe’s name has been partially “erased.” While the Zohar’s rationale for excluding Moshe’s name makes sense, what it doesn’t address is why it was done specifically in Parshas Tetzaveh as opposed to any other parsha. (See the Ba’al HaTurim, Tosefes Bracha and others for various explanations.) To fully make sense of this issue one needs to understand two other incidents in Moshe Rabbeinu’s life that the meforshim struggled to fully comprehend. The first is the drama that played out at the end of Sefer Shemos immediately after the Mishkan had been erected. The Torah tells us that “lo yachol Moshe lavo el O h el M o e d – Moshe was unable to enter the Ohel Moed,” the sacred space of the mishkan. Rashi, quoting the Sifra, believes that Moshe’s inability to enter the Ohel Moed, at this specific time, is because “shachan alav he’anan – the cloud of glory

had descended upon the mishkan.” The Medrash asserts that once the cloud of glory ascended, once the specific manifestation of G-d’s Shechinah was no longer present, then Moshe was free to enter. The Netziv challenges this explanation with a different Medrash that relates that Moshe Rabbeinu had entered the Kodesh HaKadoshim, a place where the Shechinah was always present. Additionally, the Gemara (Yoma 4a) records the position of Rav Yosi HaGelili who maintains that when Moshe stood on Har Sinai he was ensconced by the “kevod Hashem.” Why would Moshe be allowed to come in close contact in these two instances, but not right after the Mishkan was erected? (See Rav Avigdor Neventzal for a beautiful explanation.) Secondly, there is another Gemara (Menachos 29b) equally famous and perplexing. In short, the Gemara relates that when Moshe Rabbeinu was “alah la’marom,” when he ascended on high, he was able to gaze into the future and see Rabi Akiva, who derived the laws found in the Oral Torah from the most minute detail found in the Written Torah. To some degree this Talmudic exegesis was foreign to Moshe, and the Gemara records that “tashash kocho,” that he became saddened by his exclusion from this system. Subsequently, the Gemara records that as Moshe looked on, one of Rabi Akiva’s students asked him where he knew a certain halacha from. Rabi Akiva answered that it was “halacha l’Moshe m’Sinai,” it was a tradition passed down directly from Moshe Rabbeinu. Upon

hearing his name, the Gemara tells us, “nisyashva da’aso - Moshe became assuaged.” How do we explain that Moshe Rabbeinu felt both saddened by his exclusion and then ultimately buoyed by the mention of his name in the Talmudic proceedings? I recently saw a letter written by Rav Yehuda Copperman, dean emeritus of Michlalah, that offers an insight into Moshe Rabbeinu’s life that sheds light on the questions we have heretofore raised. Moshe’s birth is described somewhat anonymously as “Vayeleich ish m’beis Levi vayikach es bas Levi.” One would think that the circumstances leading up to Moshe’s birth would be handled with greater fanfare and focus on who these great individuals were, where they came from and what was outstanding about their personalities. (See the Shaarei Orah for a beautiful explanation.) Rav Copperman noted that this lowkey approach was meant to highlight that the focus for Moshe Rabbeinu was purely on the mission he was called to perform and the degree to which he succeeded or failed in that mission. The Torah doesn’t necessarily care about his lineage, but rather, ultimately, whether Moshe’s talents and potential would be actualized in service to the Jewish people. Perhaps it was important to Moshe to feel as though he was playing a role in facilitating the Geula, or in Kabbalas HaTorah or in the Mesorah, but it was never about Moshe being front and center and dominating the narrative. Moshe’s somewhat anonymous beginning highlights the demand on us to never overly focus on any one individual’s accomplishments, but on the larger themes of contributions to a cause that transcends the individual. If this is the case then we can resolve some of the issues we have raised previously. We understand that if Moshe were to enter the Mishkan at the very moment that it was completed, when the Shechinah had descended, then the Mishkan and the Shechinas haMishkan would become associated with Moshe Rabbeinu. Moshe inherently knew that he could help build and facilitate the Mishkan, but that at the most significant moment, when the Shechinah had descended, he needed to take a step back. This perhaps is what took place in Menachos as well. Initially, when Moshe was unfamiliar with the Talmudic discourse he became somewhat despondent by his lack of knowledge of some of the

specific mechanisms of Torah Sh’Baal Peh. Once he heard the reference to halacha l’Moshe M’Sinai he was assuaged by the knowledge that he was able to help facilitate the Mesorah even if the halachic and Talmudic process had extended well beyond his vast contributions. This brings us back to our original question: Why is Moshe Rabbeinu’s name omitted specifically from Parshas Tetzaveh? Rav Zalman Sorotzkin in his Oznaim LaTorah suggests that when Chazal established the cycle of Krias haTorah they specifically arranged that Tetzaveh would fall out either the week before or after the seventh of Adar, the day of Moshe’s birth and death. Rav Sorotzkin notes that leaders of other religions invariably become the focal point of the religion’s beliefs and practices, and the leader’s day of birth or death becomes a critical day on the calendar. Not so with Moshe Rabbeinu, who understood that

while he played a critical role in helping to facilitate the birth of the nation he was never the focal point – it was always about playing a role in a larger scheme. Specifically during the period of time when Moshe Rabbeinu might become lionized and even deified, the Torah excludes his name from the parsha. Moshe Rabbeinu’s life continues to inspire us thousands of years after his death. The integrated characteristics of modesty and strength that allowed Moshe to become the paradigm of a strong leader, but one whose ego did not rule the day, is an eternal model that still resonates for anyone in a leadership role. Moshe’s life demonstrates that an individual of strength, confidence and conviction is able to step back, content to just try to fulfill ratzon Hashem. May we continue to strive, in every area of our life, to integrate the messages of Toras Moshe.

Shabbos: A Day With Hashem Three Zones

E

veryone knows that when we fly to Eretz Yisroel, we pass through time zones quite rapidly. As a result, the time normally allowed for davening Shachris passes by in a blink of an eye – if you aren’t careful you can miss the whole thing! However, most people don’t know that every Shabbos we also pass through three different “time zones,” otherwise known as z’manim, quite quickly: night, morning, and afternoon. Every part has its own facets and qualities, and we act differently during each one. The Tur (O.C. Siman 292) deduces this from the fact that on Yom Tov we say the exact same Shemoneh Esrei for all three tefillos. On Shabbos, however, the middle bracha of each of the tefillos is different. This is because each part of Shabbos corresponds to one of three special Shabbosos. Friday night corresponds to Shabbos Bereishis – therefore we discuss the creation. Shabbos morning corresponds to the Shabbos when we received the Torah, so in Shachris we mention that. And finally, Shabbos afternoon corresponds to the Shabbos of the World to Come, so in Mincha we talk about the Oneness of Hashem, which will be clearly revealed at that time. These three Shabbosos were the three greatest revelations of Hashem’s presence in the world. The Maharal writes (Tiferes Yisroel, Chapter 40) that until Shabbos Bereishis the world was a mundane place. Once Shabbos arrived, through the great holiness and kedusha of the day, the world attained the ability to accept the presence of Hashem and He caused His Glory

to dwell in this world. In truth, the Chafetz Chaim writes (Shem Olam, Chapter 4) that the kedusha of the rest of the week is only through Shabbos. Thus, the “Grand Entrance” of Hashem into the world was on that first Shabbos. The next revelation occurred when we received the Torah. Even though Hashem had “entered” at the time of Creation, our job in this world was still not clear. On the Shabbos of Matan Torah, through the greatest revelation of Hashem’s Glory ever, we saw clearly the purpose of the entire world and received His Torah, which tells us exactly how to live our lives. And finally, the Yom Shekulo Shabbos – Olam Haba, when we will clearly see that there is no other power in the world besides Hashem. What still needs to be explained is the correlation of each special Shabbos to a given z’man of Shabbos. On a simple level, we can say it is based on the time that each one occurred. Hashem entered the world right at the beginning of Shabbos, and Matan Torah occurred in the morning. And since the geulah will come at the time referred to in Zecharya (14:7) as “V’haya leis erev y’hyeh ohr – And towards evening it will become light,” Shabbos afternoon corresponds to that time. However, there is a much deeper connection, which opens our eyes to a brand new aspect of Shabbos.

Getting Closer and Closer The Gemara in Sanhedrin (58b) states that for a non-Jew to keep Shabbos is considered an extremely severe offense. The Midrash (Shemos Rabba 25:11) explains this with a parable. When the king sits across from the queen, anyone who passes between is invading their privacy and will obviously be punished severely for his audacity. So too, Shabbos is the day when we spend private time together with Hashem. Keeping the laws of Shabbos is the way we block out the whole world and focus exclusively on our relationship with Hashem. Therefore, when an outsider joins he disturbs an intimate time and deserves a harsh punishment. This reveals to us just how close we can get to Hashem on Shabbos! Close relationships take time to build. The same is true for our relationship with Hashem through Shabbos. At the start of Shabbos, we begin to get close to Him. As we pass from one stage to the next, our relationship gets stronger, until finally, by the end of Shabbos, we reach the highest level of closeness possible in this world; a minuscule preview of the extreme closeness of the World to Come. This can be seen clearly in the way each tefilla begins. The Elya Rabba (O.C. 292) explains that each of z’manim of Shabbos corresponds to a different stage of the marriage process. In the first step, called kedushin - betrothal, the chosson gives the kallah a small amount of money or its equivalent (such as a ring) and says that he is mikadesh her. By doing so he sets her aside from the whole world, but she still does not enter his domain. The beginning of Shabbos correcorre sponds to the Creation of the world. At that time we did not have a personal connection to Hashem, but Hashem had set the world aside, preparing it for its ultimate purpose of helping us to get close to Him through Torah and mitzvos. Since the world was created for us, specifically so that we can achieve that goal, this act was equivalent to the first stage of our “marriage” to Hashem – the kedushin. Therefore, we start off with “Ata kidashta - You have made holy.” morn On Shabbos morning we receive the Torah and enter the next stage, nissuin – marriage, when the bride leaves her

father’s home and enters the jurisdiction of her husband. Through the Torah we received a personal connection to Hashem. He chose us from all the nations and gave us an instruction manual. Thus we say: “Yismach Moshe - Moshe rejoiced!” for this is the time of the marriage celebration. Then, finally in the afternoon, after we have passed through so many hours of the holiness of Shabbos, we reach the yichud stage – seclusion, when the chosson and kallah are all by themselves, completing the marriage bond.
