With Israeli-Palestinian Talks Teetering, Fatah And Hamas Sign Unity Accord

Observance Of Yom Ha’Atzmaut And Yom Yerushalayim By Rabbi David Brofsky

Combined Sources

In 1949, a year after the establishment of the state of Israel, the Israeli government declared that the fifth of yar should e o served as a national holiday. In response, the chief rabbis of Israel, R. it cha a evi er og and . en- ion eir Hai Uziel, recommended to the Chief Rabbinate ouncil that the fifth of yar e o served as a day [commemorating] the joy of the beginning of the redemption of the Jewish people.” his esta lishment of a new festival posed a great halachic dilemma. Some suggested that instituting a festive day for the entire ewish people to cele rate even those who did not personally experience the miraculous events constitutes a violation of the i lical in unction of bal tosef, derived from the verse ou shall not add to the mitzvot]” eut. . n the almud we find this prohi ition applies to adding parts to already existing mitzvot such as wearing five tzitzit instead of four ut am an implies that this in unction may also include adding a new holiday (see Hilchot Megillah V’Chanukah, .

Supreme Court To Review ‘Israel’ On U.S. Passports Decision The United States Supreme Court announced that it would review a July 2013 decision by the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia that struck down a 2002 federal law permitting American citizens born in Jerusalem to request that Israel be recorded as their place of birth on their passports. The State Department, which issues passports, has refused to enforce that law and “Jerusalem” is listed as the place of birth. In most cases, the country of a passport applicant’s birth is listed. Last year, the court of appeals ruled that the law is unconstitutional because it “impermissibly infringes on the President’s exercise of the recognition power,” as laid out in the Constitution. In 2003, the parents of Menachem Zivotofsky, who was orn in erusalem in filed a lawsuit seeking to enforce the law. They were represented by the noted constitutional lawyer Nathan Lewin in bringing the case and in several subsequent proceedings, including one before the U.S. Supreme Court in 2012 involving a preliminary procedural issue. Lewin is representing the Zivotovskys in the current case before the U.S. Supreme Court. In a statement, Lewin said, “When the Supreme Court reviews the historical evidence it will am confident agree with the conclusion of the leading scholars who say that Congress has always participated in issues of “recognizing” a foreign sovereign. And it will surely see the folly of the State Department’s unrealistic and harmful policy of denying that Jerusalem is in Israel. By the time Menachem Binyamin celebrates his bar mitzva in November 2015, he should, be’ezrat Hashem, have an American passport that recognizes the indisputable fact that he was born in Israel.” (Jewish Press staff)

Abbas Continues To Demand Concessions From Israel By Steve K. Walz Jewish Press Israel Correspondent JERUSALEM – Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas told Israeli journalists in Ramallah on Tuesday that he is demanding a list of concessions from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in order to extend the current Israeli-Palestinian peace talks. But he refused to mention what concessions the Palestinians are willing to make. That same day, chief PA negotiator Saeb Erekat and Israel’s lead negotiator, Justice Minister Tzipi ivni met for nearly five hours in Jerusalem. No tangible results were reported, as next week’s negotiation deadline approaches. At the press conference with the Israeli reporters, Abbas threatened to cancel the Oslo Accords, dismantle the Palestinian Authority, and force the Israeli government to pay the salaries of PA employees and the police. The current talks are deadlocked over demands by Abbas for Israel to release Israeli Arab terrorists who hold Israeli citizenship; completely halt construction in Judea, Mahmoud Abbas Samaria and Jerusalem; recognize East Jerusalem as the capital of alestine and formally su mit a plan for final orders within the next two months. For his part, Abbas has refused to recognize Israel as a Jewish state and has declined to forego the Palestinians’ demand to exercise their “right of return” into Israel. He has also declined to agree to a formal end of hostilities between Israel and the PA, and has opposed any Jewish settlement in Judea and Samaria. American interlocutors, including Secretary of State John Kerry and special envoy Martin Indyk, have been viewed by Israel as not having been critical enough of Abbas for his seemingly hardened stance. Abbas’s hard-line stance at the press conference with the Israeli journalists and his signing of a unity agreement with Hamas prompted Netanyahu to say

that Abbas is “not interested in peace. Abu Mazen [Mahmoud Abbas] must choose: either peace with Israel or reconciliation with Hamas.” Economy Minister Naftali Bennett, head of the pro-settler Habayit Hayehudi Party, told a gathering in the mixed Jewish- and Arab-populated city of Ramle, “I suggest to Abu Mazen that if you’re going to shoot, then shoot – don’t talk. The state of Israel is stronger than Abu Mazen’s threats. We hear again and again the recycling of the same threat that if we don’t go forward [with the peace process], if we don’t give him everything he wants, then oy va voi for us because he will dismantle the Palestinian Authority. This is the seventh time Abu Mazen has made this threat. What is Abu Mazen essentially telling us? That if we don’t release murdering terrorists, if we don’t divide Jerusalem, [and] if we don’t retreat, he will commit suicide. Friends, he must improve the incentive. Something here isn’t working.” While the prospects for extending the peace negotiations for at least another few months look bleak, political commentators in Israel generally maintain that as has no financial or political alternative at his disposal. Veteran TV anchorman and Israel Hayom political analyst Dan Margalit wrote, “Jibril Rajoub, Mohammed Dahlan and even Marwan Barghouti [Palestinian militants and Fatah political rivals] have not waited until 2014 in order to let a transitional leader smash their dream of succeeding him, to give up on the ruler’s seat in Ramallah and the royal honors and red carpets around the world, and mainly not to give up on the donations from around the world to those who eat for free. Abu Mazen can leap to his oblivion, but the political family around him will not be dragged along with him. He lacks the power to dissolve the Palestinian Authority.”

Fatah And Hamas Sign Accord (Continued from Front Page)

Israel while allying with Hamas. “If Abbas signs a unity government agreement with Hamas, he is signing the end of negotiations between Israel and the P.A.,” he said. Jewish Home party leader Naftali Bennett called the unity an “alliance of terror.” The U.S. State Department said the accord, which comes less than a week before U.S.-imposed deadline of April 29 for a peace agreement between Israel and the P.A., raises concerns. “It is hard to see how Israel will negotiate with a government that does not recognize its right to exist,” State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki said. “The Palestinian reconciliation deal raises concerns and could compliSen or a a ea er ou a u ar ou en or atah o fi cate the efforts to extend peace talks.” cial Azzam Al-Ahmed; head of the Hamas government Ismail Hani“The ball is in the Palestinian court yeh; and deputy speaker of Palestinian Parliament Ahmed Bahar to answer questions about how govattend a meting in Gaza City on Tuesday. ernment announcement affects peace (Photo by Abed Rahim Khatib/Flash90) talks.” PA legislature.

‘A Road Never Traveled, Leading Nowhere’ By ELLIOT RESNICK It’s a scene I’ve been part of many times: I say “Good Shabbos” to a young boy standing next to his father. The boy ignores me. The father remains silent. I recently was speaking to an older person, playing devil’s advocate on behalf of the child and his father. “The boy will grow up fine eventually,” I said. “Why force him to answer me at this age?” “But that’s part of chinuch,” the person replied. “Why should teaching derech eretz be absent? We don’t let children break Shabbos, we don’t let them eat non-kosher food, why should we let them be rude simply because they will eventually – possibly – turn out fine?” Why indeed? Why do so many parents permit their children to ignore their friends’ greetings? Why do so many of them let their children run amok in the house? Why do so many of them allow their children to behave in atrocious ways – scurrying about during speeches at family simchas, disturbing adult conversation at the Shabbos table, creating a ruckus at restaurants? It wasn’t always this way. Anyone over 60 remembers a different world – one in which children were – yes – seen but not heard. Watch any old black and white movie and you will be struck by the respect children once accorded adults and the manners and general obedience they displayed. A principal of a large yeshiva recently told me that he sees a vast difference in behavior between students today and those attending school just 25 years ago. “These children will all turn out fine eventually.” But is that really true? Will someone trained to obey from an early age become the same adult as someone whose passions and whims are given free reign as a child? Rav Samson Raphael Hirsch writes, “To be good is an art, perhaps the most difficult art that any human being may be expected to acquire and practice… As is the case in any other field, masters are not born; only practice can make perfect.” And therefore, like any other “field of endeavor…practice must begin at an early age if it is to be crowned with the laurels of mastership in maturity.” Upon refl ection, what Rav Hirsch writes seems self-evident; indeed, it was conventional wisdom once Elliot Resnick is a Jewish Press staff reporter and author of “Movers and Shakers: Sixty Prominent Personalities Speak Their Mind on Tape” (Brenn Books).

upon a time. If a child is seldom required to yield his desires and needs to those of others, surely doing so as an adult will not come naturally to him. If saying “please,” if sharing one’s toys, if gladly giving up one’s bed for a guest, if waiting patiently while one’s mother is on the phone – if all these behaviors are not instilled in a child from an early age, surely his moral will and habits will differ from those who received proper training as youngsters. As a doctoral candidate at Yeshiva University, I’m constantly astounded at the number of students who sit by the computers in YU’s library – surrounded by fellow students working quietly – and start chattering on their cellphones for minutes on end for all to hear. Surely it’s not a coincidence that our narcissistic age – recently dubbed the “Me Me Me Generation” by Time magazine – just happens to come on the heels of the first two generations of adults brought up by parents who rebelled against the disciplinary approach of their forebears. Surely the rising divorce rate is not unrelated to the number of adults who have been raised to think the world revolves around them. What about self-esteem? Won’t disciplining children damage their self-esteem, causing them to become timid, dependent adults? Though this argument is voiced fairly often, I confess to finding it rather surprising. If we were the first generation living on earth and debating parenting methods in a laboratory, I could understand the argument. But we aren’t the first generation. Hundreds have come before us. And virtually all of them, as far as we know, grew up under “authoritarian” parenting. In other words, individuals who grew up under this “Prussian” disciplinary model – and who should, ostensibly, possess low self-esteem – were responsible for the American Revolution, the French Revolution, the Russian Revolution, etc. And today, the Arabs, who still grow up with old-school discipline, are overthrowing governments and toppling dictators in the Middle East. In other words, their self-esteem seems rather healthy. More importantly, though, instilling self-esteem should not be the goal of parenting. Indeed, according to Judaism, self-esteem is a rather bad trait to possess. One is not supposed to esteem oneself. “Be of exceedingly lowly spirit,” Pirkei Avos states. According to the Rambam, humility is one of only two traits for which one should abandon the golden mean. “If a man

is only humble,” he writes, “he is not following a good path. Rather, he must hold himself lowly and very unassuming.” The Ramban, in his famous letter to his son – published by ArtScroll as A Letter for the Ages – spends fully half of it urging his son to be humble, which he calls “the finest of all admirable traits.” He says man is “as frail as the maggot or the worm” and instructs his son to let “all men seem greater than you in your eyes.” He should “learn to stand meekly before man, and fearfully before God” since, as Mishlei teaches, “On the heels of humility comes fear of Hashem.” In more recent times, Abraham Joshua Heschel writes, “A religious man could never say: ‘I am a good person.’ Far from being satisfied with his conduct, he prays three times daily: ‘Forgive us, our Father, for we have sinned.’” Indeed, all this is obvious. Judaism never encourages feeling good about oneself. In no mussar work or classical Jewish work of any kind is self-esteem emphasized. Nowhere in davening do we say, “I’m good enough,” as one popular Jewish organization urges its members to shout. Not only is self-esteem not accorded the prominence given to it today, it’s barely even mentioned in classical Jewish literature – if at all. Judaism is all about our duties to God and others. It is not about the self, and esteeming oneself is the opposite of what a Jew (or any human being) should feel. That’s why Judaism requires us to start the day with “Modeh ani – Grateful am I” rather than “Ani modeh – I am grateful.” The first word we utter in the morning should not be “I,” explains the Alter of Slabodka. Our modern-day “obsession with me” is nothing less than “the avodah zarah of our time,” Rabbi Jonathan Sacks said in a recent lecture. So let us not be confused by the self-esteem craze or parenting theories concocted by theoreticians in the 1960s. These theoreticians have sent us down “a road never traveled, leading nowhere,” as gadfl y psychologist John Rosemond puts it. Let us return to the chinuch practiced by the older generation – the one that produced respectful children rather than obnoxious ones, the one that emphasized obedience and derech eretz rather than self-esteem, the one that cared about how kids acted rather than how they felt, and the one that produced a generation of fine menschen rather than the increasing number of unpolished adults walking the streets today.

Race Hacks Will Never Face Up To The Truth By BRUCE S. THORNTON The usual race-hack suspects recently attacked Congressman Paul Ryan for stating that the problems plaguing the poor – incarceration, fatherless children, drug abuse, rampant violence, and welfare-dependence – are a consequence of a dysfunctional culture that scorns marriage, parenthood, education, work, and virtues like self-control. It’s understandable that the race-industry grievance-mongers want to defl ect attention away from Ryan’s message. Since the rise of identity politics and anti-poverty programs in the 60s, the plight of the black underclass has worsened, even as the self-selected race tribunes – professors, “activists,” lobbyists, government employees, celebrities, politicians – have fl ourished. Given that the moral capital financing the race industry comes from the misery and suffering of underclass blacks, race-grievance entrepreneurs must ward off solutions to those problems that challenge the narrative justifying their own power. That narrative is simple: white racism explains the epidemic of black-on-black murder, children without Bruce S. Thornton is a professor of Classics and Humanities at California State University and the author of several books including “Searching for Joaquin: Myth and History in California.”

fathers, lack of education, and dependence on the government dole. The biggest victims of the narrative, of course, are those minorities who bear the brunt of the misguided programs and illiberal ideologies that buttress the race industry. Rather than gaining the self-respect and sense of achievement that comes from earning one’s daily bread by one’s own efforts, the clients of what has been called the “poverty-industrial complex” are kept mired in dependence. At the same time that civil rights legislation and the dismantling of de jure segregation were achieved – clearing away the impediments to access to the opportunities created by the post-war expanding economy and shifting social mores – a new de facto segregation appeared in the promotion of a “black identity” the essence of which was separate and distinct from that of white people. This mythic identity embodied old cultural-Marxist critiques of the soul-killing, inhibited, “air-conditioned nightmare” of white middle class American life, fused with race-hatred and the sick glamor of revolutionary violence. Elite left-wing whites enthusiastically embraced the version of black identity, for they despised a middle class they had long characterized as rubes and squares inferior to the cultural mandarins safely en-

sconced in upscale neighborhoods and prestigious professions into which black street-rebels rarely ventured. The problem, of course, is that the virtues and habits needed for success – delayed gratification, self-control of appetite, self-discipline, and education in the skills and mores valued by the larger culture – were stigmatized as “acting white” and as acts of race betrayal. Meanwhile, more blacks are murdered by other blacks in one year than were lynched by racist mobs between 1882 and 1968, more black babies in New York are aborted than are born, nationally black unemployment remains twice as high as white, 1 in 3 black men will go to prison in their lifetime, the black high school graduation rate is 12 points lower than white, black male college graduation rates are nearly 25 points lower than other students – by almost every measure of social and economic well-being from infant mortality to longevity, blacks lag behind whites despite nearly 70 years and trillions of dollars worth of programs that were supposed to improve these dismal statistics. Those truly concerned with these problems need to address the genuine racism holding back millions of black people: a dysfunctional culture created by the unholy marriage of government social welfare entitlements and the self-interested identity politics of race hacks.

The Celebrate Israel Parade (formerly the Salute to Israel Parade), scheduled for June 1, has drawn extraordinary advance criticism this year. It seems parade organizers, ostensibly to be as inclusive as possible, have acceded to requests to participate from the New Israel Fund, Partners for Progressive Israel and B’Tselem. Critics, however, maintain that the three groups are tied to the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS), which seeks to organize punitive action against Israel. While some groups associated with BDS seek the elimination of Israel as a Jewish state and advocate boycotts against products produced on both sides of the Green Line, the three groups in question claim their interest is purely in seeing Israel change its policies vis-Ă -vis areas beyond the Green Line and that they therefore support boycotts only of products produced there. This, these three groups say, is designed to strengthen Israeli democracy and Israel’s standing in the world, which makes them “pro-Israelâ€? and therefore eminently qualified to participate in the parade. For us this is a distinction without a difference. To our mind anything outside the Israeli political process designed to force the elected government of Israel to change its policies cannot be deemed pro-Israel. To be sure, parade organizers argue that “[t]here’s no BDS in the paradeâ€? and condemn BDS as a “clear and present danger to the future of Israel.â€? And in a statement they went on to say that while they “strongly disagreeâ€? with the three groups for their support of boycotts of products from over the Green Line, the groups “fit within the guidelines of the parade,â€? having signed a statement that says they “identify with Israel as a Jewish and democratic state.â€? While we would never question the parade organizers’ staunch support for Israel, they plainly do not agree with the notion that private organizations attempting to force Israel to change its policies is inconsistent with “pro-Israelâ€? self-identification. Yet the actions of such groups serve to delegitimize Israel’s negotiating position and undermine any leverage it might have. Indeed, in this sense we cannot perceive any differences here with Mahmoud Abbas’s absolutist claims and adamant

refusals to compromise on the major issues. And what can Israel say to its critics who will gleefully trumpet the acceptance by the leading pro-Israel event in the United States of such vociferous opponents of Israel’s settlement policy? Truth be told, these “limited� BDSers are hardly fanciful, philosophical moralists. They are savvy, presumptuous, hard-nosed zealots whose targets for economic and political demise only happen to be a couple hundred thousand Jews they consider dispensable. Thus, Partners For Progressive Israel has this on its website: In response to the recent passage of the Boycott Bill by the Knesset, a bill which blurs the Green line by making no distinction between Israel proper and the Settlements, we are reiterating our call to American Jews to “Buy Israel -- Don’t Buy Settlements (They’re not the same)�.... The following is a list of products and produce made in West Bank Settlements and sold in the U.S. Please boycott these products and produce. It’s important to note that products made in Settlements bear the label “Made in Israel� but this is inaccurate. If you know of any other products or produce that are made or grown in West bank Settlements and sold in the U.S., e-mail us...and we will add them to the boycott list. B’Tselem says this about itself: Why Is B’Tselem bringing [its] work to the United States instead of keeping it in Israel? American foreign policy plays a vital role in shaping Israel’s policies in the Occupied Territories. The debate in the United States is often based on a false dichotomy between Israel’s legitimate security concerns on the one hand, and Palestinians’ basic rights on the other. As an Israeli human rights group, we are uniquely positioned to inform and enrich this debate, providing the facts necessary to evaluate Is-

Palestinian Agenda

Re: “Fate of Talks Hangs in Balance as Kerry Confers With Obama, Lieberman� (front page news story, April 11): My skepticism about the sincerity of the Palestinians’ efforts to negotiate a settlement with Israel has been borne out by events. I agree with your editorial position that all along Mahmoud Abbas was simply trying to secure the release of Palestinians held in Israeli prisons for crimes ranging from mayhem to outright murder and always intended to return to the UN for the establishment of a Palestinian state. Israel, at the insistence of the U.S., participated in the charade by providing the Palestinians with incentives to sit at the negotiating table, largely in the form of the prisoner releases. Once they got most of the releases accomplished, the Pal-

estinians started saying that there would be no negotiations over core issues like the status of Jerusalem, and recognition of Israel as a Jewish state. Israel simply had to agree to the Palestinian position according to the Palestinians. This should be a lesson to all of us. The only results of the sham negotiations is that now the Palestinians are emboldened and there are more than a hundred terrorists free to continue the war against innocent Israelis. Shalom Hoenig (Via E-Mail)

What Resolution 242 Really Said

Kudos to The Jewish Press for putting the Obama Mideast policy in perspective. (Middle East Reassessment,� editorial, April 11). Setting the 1967 lines as a framework for negotiations between Israel and

the Palestinians is an important departure from the policy of the Johnson administration, which shepherded Resolution 242 through the UN in the aftermath of the SixDay War. Back in 1967, the Johnson administration recognized that the Arab world would never accept the legitimacy of Israel and that therefore, to discourage the Arabs from initiating periodic wars seeing the destruction of Israel, Israel would need to keep as much land as it needed to provide for fully defensible borders. The UN ambassador at the time, Arthur Goldberg, brought this about through artful jousting with the Soviet Ambassador, Nikolai Fedorenko, leading to UN Resolution 242 which provided that Israel did not have to give up the – i.e. all –

Tradition & Technology: E-learning In Jewish Day Schools By LAURIE RAPPEPORT

Orthodoxy is often perceived as resistant to change, but the vibrancy of many Orthodox day schools indicates otherwise. In my experience as an educator, Orthodox schools are interested in exploring different types of educational formats. In particular, online learning is becoming an increasingly important component of day school frameworks. Schools incorporate E-learning for a variety of reasons: • Online learning enables schools to incorporate Israeli educators who have expertise in particular subjects and can offer an Israeli flavor to the learning. • Computer activities allows for differentiated learning. • Partnerships can be established between Jewish classrooms in North America and Israeli classrooms. • Day schools can combine classes, including sex-segregated groups in which boys and girls participate in the same online class but don’t meet or interact in “real time.” • The variety of available online tools creates a dynamic classroom environment that fosters increased student participation. • Online learning promotes collaborative learning in which students have numerous opportunities to interact with their peers and use their classmates’ knowledge, comments, and research to enhance their own knowledge of a subject • There are more and varied opportunities for teachers to assess student progress and for the students themselves to evaluate their own progress. Over the past year I have been involved with JETS, Jerusalem EdTech Solutions, an organization that offers online educational programming to Jewish day schools throughout North America. These schools span the Jewish spectrum, but it’s clear that increasing numbers of Orthodox schools are adding E-learning to their Laurie Rappeport lives in Safed, Israel. She is an online Israel and Jewish studies educator for JETS Israel and works with the Jewish Educators Awards to increase the visibility of online education in the Jewish educational landscape.

curriculum, with encouraging results. The teachers are enthused, the students are engaged, and the depth and strategy of online education allows for deeper, broader, and more intensive learning opportunities. JETS course options cover a wide range of Jewish and Israel-related curriculum including core curriculum subjects in Tanach and Gemara and issues that impact on students’ connection to the land and state of Israel. Schools use online learning to promote the students’ language acquisition, to reinforce different concepts, and to open up students’ encounters to new worlds and experiences. Web-conferencing enables students to discuss ideas and concepts interactively – often with the facilitator or peers in Israel. Some schools are reporting significant success in “flipping” their classrooms so that learning activities that could once take place only in the classroom can now be completed in the student’s home, leaving the classroom for teacher-directed learning and more one-on-one interaction. JETS is presently facilitating a year-long Contemporary Jewish Issues course with Yeshivat Kadimah of St. Louis. Kadimah is a new high school and the classes are still small. JETS and Yeshivat Kadimah established the Contemporary Jewish Issues class as a synchronous class in which the entire student body can participate in the class together, even as the boys’ and girls’ sections remain separate. Smadar Goldstein, JETS director and the class facilitator, meets with the students twice a week via web-conferencing. She presents the course content and the activities both orally and visually via a Learning Management System (LMS). Students use the LMS to view their assignments, complete their assigned work individually or in small groups, track their own progress, receive and respond to teacher and peer comments, and make use of a variety of evaluation tools to assess their achievement. The Contemporary Jewish Issues class has always been one of most popular JETS programs. In presenting the class to Yeshivat Kadimah, JETS is taking the

course one step further by incorporating reflections on Jewish heritage – the students examine multiple aspects of Jewish history in the light of current events that are impacting on Israel and on the Jewish world. The multi-generational discussion includes the opinions of historical Jewish leaders and thinkers, textual study, and biblical and rabbinic perspectives. The course began with an overview of the destruction of the 2nd Beit HaMikdash and the political and nationalistic aspirations of some of the various Jewish groups of the era. Using online polls, research tools and shared documents, the students are able to review the historical background of the era, examine the decisions that the Jews were forced to make, and apply their knowledge to today’s land for peace controversy. The course has gone on to cover a wide range of additional subjects that are as pertinent to the present day as they were to the Jews of previous centuries. The topics include acculturation and assimilation, law and morality, universalism and particularism, Intellectual openness, creating a modern Jewish army, Jewish medical ethics, and democracy. One of the most innovative aspects of the E-learning course involves the students’ ability to create their own projects and share them with their peers. Students work on their own projects while simultaneously reviewing the work of their peers. This adds to each participant’s overall understanding of the subjects under discussion. Last November the yeshiva invited parents to a meeting at which they were introduced to the E-learning class in which their children were participating. Parents were able to observe how the students are enjoying a highly effective classroom environment that promotes their understanding of complex issues. Everyone came away highly impressed. “The way you’re learning is unbelievable,” said one attendee. “Taking what you’re good at – modern technology, chat rooms, discussion forums – and turning it into online educational experiences is something I never could have done and yet you clearly are learning so much.”

Breaking The Fwd:fwd:fwd:fwd:fwd Chain By Rabbi DANI STAUM

I get the point. We all get the point. There are Jews who act inappropriately. There are Jews who look religious but who commit disgraceful acts when they think no one is looking. There are Jews who shame us all. No one is denying that. But is it really necessary to forward to everyone we know every article in every newspaper or on every website that describes an incident in which a Jew did something wrong? Let’s say the stories are completely true. And, for a moment, let’s even put aside the laws of lashon hora (as if that can be done). Is there something to be gained by every Orthodox Jew being aware of the shameful acts of fellow Orthodox Jews? Is there something to be gained by publicizing our own degradation? It’s not as if we are aren’t aware that such things happen in our community. We are charged to love every Jew. Granted, it’s not always easy to do so. But as any psychologist will tell you, it’s a matter of focus and perspective. In a cynical and sarcastic society, where we all suffer from jealousy, fantasies about everyone else having it better than we do, and all manner of inferiority complexes, we often zero in on the negative. We are quick to judge and condemn others, without seeing the whole picture. But even when Jews have indeed acted reprehensibly, how can we love our own people if all we talk about is how they are doing things wrong, cheating, acting immorally and being lousy citizens? If a person tells a therapist he feels lowly and Rabbi Dani Staum is the rabbi of Kehillat New Hempstead as well as guidance counselor/rebbe at ASHAR/ Bais Hachinuch in Monsey, New York. He is also a monthly columnist for The Jewish Press Magazine.

worthless, the therapist will instruct him that for every negative thought he has about himself he must counter with five nice ones. The therapist may even insist he write the positives down and keep it logged in a journal for constant review. Perhaps whenever we receive or read about yet another terrible story concerning frum Jews, we should remind ourselves about how much good there is in our community. What about those beautiful articles depicting the chesed, the heroes, the love and passion exhibited in furthering our service to Hashem? Those articles circulate, but not nearly with the same speed as the negative ones. The level of Torah study and mitzvah observance today is beyond compare. Recently, a neighbor related that she arrived home from a tzedakah event and remarked to her husband that she was so proud to be a part of such a special people. Though she had attended many such events before, that night it struck her just how remarkable it is that they are so commonplace in our community. Virtually every night there are similar events taking place for the benefit of a myriad of organizations. Tanna D’vei Eliyahu speaks glowingly about the intense pleasure God has, as it were, when we speak kindly of our fellow Jews. Rav Avrohom Pam, zt”l (quoted in Haggadas Mareh Kohain), dolefully noted that it is common to hear people, even people of stature, bemoaning the spiritual degeneration of our time. Rav Pam said we must realize that God has no pleasure from such negative speech, adding that he wasn’t referring to one who rebukes or admonishes others. In such a case it is surely fitting to explain to someone (in a genial and gentle fashion) what he has done wrong. Rather, Rav Pam explained, he was referring to those who stand together “conversing about

things.” While speaking, they begin to discuss people and events and they lament the spiritual erosion of our time. If one wishes to find fault with Jews, “iz duh vos tzu g’foonin” – “there is what to find.” But if the purpose of one’s words is simply to speak negatively, he is doing a great disservice to the world. “Perhaps this malady,” Rav Pam warned, “is one of the causes for the delaying of Mashiach.” It’s not a matter of being blind to the truth of our faults but rather a matter of focus and perspective. What does one choose to see? Unless one has the ability to correct and rectify evil acts, he should not speak negatively about other Jews but should seek out their positive traits and focus on them. There are many serious challenges in the Torah world. There is, however, no dearth of merits that we possess. The fact that the Torah world rebuilt itself as it did after the destruction of European Jewry by the Nazis is the greatest testament to our resiliency and greatness. It all depends on what we focus on. We surely need to contemplate and plan for how we and our children will navigate the maze of challenges that confront us as Torah Jews. At the same time, we need to know we are part of a people who are never happy with past achievements and are always striving for greatness. We are a people of unstoppable resilience and faith. We are a nation that has the courage to be different, and to be accused of being eccentric for our beliefs. But if we aren’t careful we can easily allow the negativity and shameful acts of some members of our community to overshadow all the beauty. Something to think about before we decide to share an article on social media or push the send button on an e-mail.

Jews In Space By BRUCE BAWER

At the end of his 1981 movie A History of the World, Part I, Mel Brooks added three funny fake “trailers� for non-existent movies, one of them being Jews in Space. The trailer showed a Star of David-shaped spacecraft, crewed by bearded guys in yarmulkes and prayer shawls, winning an interstellar holy war. In titling this piece “Jews in Space,� I’m not referring to that kind of Jew in space – I’m talking about a category of Jews who seem so hostile to their own people and heritage that they’ve entirely escaped the gravitational pull of basic common sense, decency, and fact and spun out into the orbit of rabid anti-Israeli and pro-Islamic radicalism. Jews such as the following: Richard Falk, U.S. jurist. Falk should have been forever disqualified from holding any responsible position when, after meeting the Ayatollah Khomeini in 1979, he mocked claims that the ayatollah was fanatical or reactionary. Later appointed UN Special Rapporteur on human rights in Palestine he repeatedly compared Israel to Nazi Germany, saying that it exhibits “genocidal tendencies� and warning of a forthcoming “Palestinian holocaust.� To Falk, the Boston Marathon bombings were an understandable act of “resistance� to U.S. imperialist hegemony and Americans’ outraged reactions were rooted in “Islamophobia.� And Falk is a 9/11 Truther whose call for a study of U.S. officials’ alleged involvement in the annihilation of the Twin Towers moved even morally lethargic UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon to label his charges “preposterous.� Roger Cohen, British-born New York Times columnist. A series of staggeringly fatuous columns Cohen Bruce Bawer is a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center and the author of “While Europe Slept� and “Surrender.� His newest book is “The Victims’ Revolution: The Rise of Identity Studies and the Closing of the Liberal Mind� (Broadside/HarperCollins).

wrote in 2009 about a two-week visit to Iran cemented his reputation as “American journalism’s most prominent Iranian apologist� (to quote The Weekly Standard ‘s Michael Goldfarb). Notwithstanding Ahmadinejad’s rants about wiping Israel off the map, Cohen praised Iran as the Middle East’s most democratic state, other than Israel, and insisted that viewing it as totalitarian was a “grotesque caricature.� When he spoke at an L.A. synagogue, an audience of Iranian Jews responded with derisive laughter to his naivete about the true intentions of Hamas and Hizbullah. Ronnie Kasrils, South African politician. After spending over a quarter-century as an anti-apartheid guerilla fighter, Kasrils, the African National Congress’s highest-ranking white leader as well as a longtime member of the South African Communist Party Politburo, joined the post-apartheid RSA government – serving for several years as Minister of Intelligence – and began advocating zealously for the Palestinian cause. Among his goals: to convince his fellow South African Jews that the suffering inflicted by Israel upon Palestinians is “far worse than anything our people faced during the most dreadful days of apartheid.� To Kasrils, Israelis are “baby killers� and “Nazis,� and Israel’s security fence is totally unjustifiable – this from a man who during the Cold War (when he was trained by the KGB and Stasi and counted both Che Guevara and Fidel Castro as chums) accepted the Kremlin line that the Berlin Wall was necessary to keep West Germany from destroying the GDR. Sarah Schulman, U.S. writer. Schulman, a lesbian novelist and playwright who teaches at the City University of New York, is the leading promoter of the insipid concept of “pinkwashing� – the claim, which in the last couple of years has gained traction in the American and European academy with alarming speed, that Israel markets its liberal gay-rights record as a way of distracting from an illiberal policy of oppressing innocent Palestinians. Schulman, who comes from a family of Holocaust survivors, has marched with members of Hamas.

Dror Feiler, Swedish-Israeli artist. Raised on a communist kibbutz, Feiler has lived in Sweden since 1973. The head of several pro-Palestinian groups and an organizer of the Gaza “Freedom Flotillas,â€? he’s worked alongside Hamas leaders. At a 2010 rally in Turkey, Feiler stood by in silence while another speaker decried “the filth that is Israelâ€? and the crowd shouted “death to Israel.â€? “Snow White and the Madness of Truth,â€? a 2004 art installation by Feiler and his wife, Gunilla, memorialized Hanadi Jaradat, a Palestinian suicide bomber who killed 21 people in Haifa. Anna Baltzer, U.S. activist. Baltzer heads the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation (an International Solidarity Movement front), sits on the boards of several other such groups, and tours the U.S. telling audiences how evil Israel is and extolling Palestinians’ “armed struggle against illegal occupation.â€? Frequently accused of fabricating accounts of Israeli misdeeds and of claiming to have witnessed events that are, in fact, mere hearsay, Baltzer continued to promote the tale of the Jenin massacre long after it had been discredited; the details of another of her stories, about a pregnant Palestinian who purportedly lost twin babies because she was held up at an Israeli checkpoint, have changed repeatedly.

A TASTE OF LOMDUS RABBI RAPHAEL FUCHS

Fooling The Blind One of the many different mitzvos mentioned in this week’s parshah, Parshas Kedoshim, is the prohibition of lifnei iver – placing a stumbling block in front of a blind man. Mefarshim discuss what sort of “stumbling blocks” are included in this prohibition. Rashi quotes the Toras Kohanim, which says that the pasuk refers to offering someone bad advice, i.e., advising someone to sell his field for a donkey. There is a machlokes in the Gemara in general whether a pasuk may be interpreted entirely non-literally, or whether we are always bound to the basic text. In this case, the question would be whether it is prohibited to actually place a stumbling block in a blind man’s path or whether the pasuk refers only to giving someone bad advice. We pasken that we are bound to the wording of a pasuk; therefore, it is prohibited to place a stumbling block in a blind man’s path. The Gemara says that it is prohibited to give someone the opportunity to perform an aveirah that he otherwise would not have due to the prohibition of lifnei iver. For example, one may not give a nazir – who is prohibited from drinking wine – a glass of wine that he could not otherwise have gotten, for this constitutes a “stumbling block” for him. A man unable to control himself from transgressing is considered an iver. The Gemara, in Avodah Zarah 22a, says that someone should not rent his field to a kusi because the kusi will work the field on Chol HaMoed and people will wrongfully accuse the landlord of working on Chol HaMoed. The Gemara asks: Why are we only concerned about the landlord’s bad name? Why aren’t we also concerned about the landlord transgressing the prohibition of lifnei iver? After all, the landlord has given the kusi a field that he can work on during Chol HaMoed which he would not otherwise have had. The Gemara answers that the prohibition of lifnei iver does, indeed, apply in this case, and a person should therefore not rent his field to a kusi on Chol HaMoed. Tosafos points out that this Gemara serves as a proof for Rabbeinu Tam, who says that t lifnei iver

even applies to giving someone the opportunity to perform a rabbinic prohibition. Why? Because in Tosafos’s opinion, performing work on Chol HaMoed is only prohibited mi’de’rabbanan. The Ramban disagrees with Tosafos on both points. The Ramban proves that working on Chol HaMoed is prohibited mi’de’oraisa from the fact that the Gemara says that someone transgresses lifnei iver by creating a situation whereby one can work on Chol HaMoed. According to the Ramban, lifnei iver only includes giving someone the opportunity to perform de’oraisa prohibitions, not rabbinic ones. Tosafos, in Chagigah, also opines that the prohibition of lifnei iver only applies to de’oraisa prohibitions. The Minchas Chinuch (mitzvah 232) asks an obvious question on the Ramban and Tosafos: How can giving someone the opportunity to perform rabbinic prohibitions not fall under the prohibition of lifnei iver? Is telling someone to transgress a rabbinic prohibition not considered bad advice? Why, then, is placing a rabbinic “stumbling block” in someone’s path not included in lifnei iver? I would suggest that there is a difference between giving bad advice and placing a “stumbling block” in the path of a “blind man.” When a person gives advice to someone who trusts him, the advice itself is the stumbling block. But when someone gives another person the opportunity to do an aveirah, the aveirah is the stumbling block. The aveirah offers its own temptations. The person who placed it in his fellow’s path is not being trusted at all. What the Torah prohibits is giving people the opportunity to do aveiros that they otherwise would not have had. This can only apply to aveiros that the Torah has prohibited, not to rabbinically-prohibited aveiros. If someone were to give his fellow the opportunity to make a bad deal without advising him in any way to make the deal, he would not be transgressing lifnei iver. Similarly, if one were to give his fellow the opportunity to perform a rabbinic prohibition, he would not be transgressing the prohibition of lifnei iver. On the other hand, if someone advises another person to transgress a rabbinic prohibition, he does violate lifnei iver because it is surely considered bad advice to violate a rabbinic transgression.

Where am I going to get stories? I already used You once described yourself as a “mohel who

has a mission.” What did you mean by that? When I do a bris, especially for a family that’s not religious, I feel that I have a responsibility to make it such a meaningful event that they will never forget it. A family that’s not religious doesn’t have too many religious occasions. We have Shabbos and Yom Tov and all the mitzvos – we have ways of being inspired – but how are these people going to get inspired? So you have to do something at the bris to make them feel a connection to the previous generations, to Hashem, and to Torah. One of the ways I do that is I have one of the parents speak about the person the baby is named for. When you do that, all of a sudden the bris takes on a totally different approach because they realize they’re not only talking about the future of this child, but the legacy of his past. I always tell people that the Rebbe Reb Elimelech writes that when you name a child after someone, you make a connection between the neshamah of that child and the neshamah of the person he’s being named for. When I was writing that for the bris milah book, I took the page out of the typewriter to write the word neshamah [in Hebrew]. Now, write for yourself the Hebrew word neshamah. What do the middle two letters spell? Shem. Isn’t that incredible? When I saw that, I thought I would faint. The word shem is right in there – the two neshamos are connected through the name. So that’s what I tell people, and that’s what I mean by a mission. The bris is not just the technical aspect. It’s being mekadesh shem shamayim in such a way that the people leave elevated. What would you say is the most interesting bris you did for a non-frum family? One of them was for a Russian family. The father called me up and said he wanted the bris in the afternoon after he came home from work. So I came to the house on Tuesday – eight days after the child was born – but there was nobody there except the mother, the grandmother, and the baby. The mother looks at me, and says, “What are you doing here?” I said, “What do you mean? I told your husband, Ivan, that the bris is today.” She said, “He thinks it’s tomorrow, everybody’s coming tomorrow.” So I called her husband. He was in the gym, working out, and I said, “Ivan, listen, I apologize, maybe I didn’t make myself clear, but today is the eighth day. We have to do the bris today.” I thought for sure he was going to say, “Listen rabbi, we’re not doing it, come back tomorrow.” But instead, he said, “Rabbi, how much time do we have left?” I said, “Half-hour.” He said, “Okay, you get everything set and I’ll be there.” I couldn’t believe it. So I’m setting everything up and he walks in about 15 minutes later, sweating. I told him to wash up [because he had to be the sandek], I gave him a yarmulke, and we did the bris. We finished five minutes before sunset. Then I said, “Listen to me, Ivan, I have to come visit the baby so I’ll be here at the exact same time tomorrow. Don’t say anything to anyone and tomorrow we’re going to make a beautiful ceremony.” So the next day, I come. Many people are there and everybody thinks we’re making a bris. We bring out the baby, I say “Baruch haba,” and then I put my arm around Ivan and said to everybody: “You don’t realize what kind of tzaddik you have as a friend. You see, Ivan never went to yeshiva and he couldn’t possibly know how important it is to have a bris on the eighth day, but his neshamah told him that if God says it’s supposed to be on the eighth day, you do it no matter what, even if nobody’s here.” So I said, “Rabbotai, I’m going to go through a ceremony and I’ll explain the whole ceremony, but I want you to know that your friend did the bris yesterday and you can be so proud of him.” It was so moving.

COVENANT & CONVERSATION RABBI LORD JONATHAN SACKS

Followership There is a fascinating sequence of commands in the great “holiness code” with which our parshah begins that sheds light on the nature not just of leadership in Judaism but also of followership. Here is the command in context: “Do not hate your brother in your heart. Reprove [or reason with] your neighbor frankly so you will not bear sin because of him. Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord” (Leviticus 19:17-18). There are two completely different ways to understand the italicized words. Maimonides brings them both as legally binding. Nahmanides includes them both in his commentary to the Torah. The first is to read the command in terms of interpersonal relations. Someone, you believe, has done you harm. In such a case, says the Torah, do not remain in a state of silent resentment. Do not give way to hate, do not bear a grudge, and do not take revenge. Instead, reprove him, reason with him, tell him what you believe he has done and how you feel it has harmed you. He may apologize and seek to make amends. Even if he does not, at least you have made your feelings known to him. That in itself is cathartic. It will help you to avoid nursing a grievance. The second interpretation, though, sees the command in impersonal terms. It has nothing to do with you being harmed. It refers to someone you see acting wrongly, committing a sin or a crime. You may not be the victim. You may be just an observer. The command tells us not to be content with passing a negative judgment on his behavior (i.e. with “hating him in your heart”). You must get involved. You should remonstrate with him, pointing out in as gentle and constructive a way as you can, that what he is doing is against the law, civil or moral. If you stay silent and do nothing, you will become complicit in his guilt (i.e. “bear sin because of him”) because you saw him do wrong and you did nothing to protest. This second interpretation is possible only because of Judaism’s fundamental principle that kol Yisrael areivin zeh bazeh – All Jews are sureties [i.e. responsible] for one another. However, the Talmud (Bava Metzia 31a) makes a fascinating observation about the scope of the command: One of the rabbis said to Raba: [The Torah says] “hocheach tochiach,” meaning that you shall reprove your neighbor repeatedly [because the verb is doubled, implying more than once]. Might this mean hocheach, reprove him once, and tochiach, a second time? No, he replied, the word hocheach means even a hundred times. Why then does it add the word “tochiach?” Had there been only a single verb I would have known that the law applies to a master reproving his disciple. How do we know that it applies even to a disciple reproving his master? From the phrase “hocheach tochiach,” implying: under all circumstances. This is significant because it establishes a principle of critical followership. In past essays we have been looking at the role of the leader in Judaism. But what about that of the follower? On the face of it the duty of the follower is to follow, and that of the disciple to learn. After all, Judaism commands almost unlimited respect for teachers. “Let reverence for your teacher be as great as your reverence for heaven,” said the Sages. Despite this the Talmud understands the Torah to be commanding us to remonstrate even with our teacher or leader should we see him or her doing something wrong. Suppose a leader commands you to do something you know to be forbidden in Jewish law. Should you

PA Pressures U.S. To Pressure Israel The Palestinian Authority is engaged in a multipronged effort to press the U.S. to continue talks to create a Palestinian state beyond Secretary of State John Kerry’s deadline for momentum at the end of this month. According to informed Middle Eastern security officials, the PA pressure tactics include re-establishing its terrorist group, the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades; threatening to dismantle the PA; and efforts to reconcile with the rival Hamas terror group in the Gaza Strip. Kerry had imposed a deadline at the end of April for the outline of an Israeli-PA interim agreement, but the talks have reportedly stalled. The dismantling of the PA is unlikely if for no other reason than the rank corruption in its midst. Companies controlled by Abbas’s sons have been accused of siphoning more than $1.5 billion in international aid to the PA through various offshoot companies. Another pressure tactic clearly being used by Abbas is a threat to reconstitute the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, the so-called military wing of Abbas’s Fatah organization. Last week, this reporter and several other media outlets received text messages from members of the Brigades based in the northern West Bank city of Nablus. The messages claimed the Brigades is once again back in the fight and is preparing for a new round of confrontations against Israel, including attacks against the Israel Defense Forces. The Middle Eastern security officials said that for the moment there is no indication the Brigades have been given any green light by Abbas or other top PA officials to carry out attacks. Meanwhile, in yet another effort to pressure Washington to extend the talks, Abbas’s Fatah party is set to meet with leading members of the rival Hamas group to talk about reconciliation. The clearly intended message is that if a peace deal is not reached, Abbas will be left with no other option but to reach out to Hamas. Last week, Kerry blamed both Israel and the Palestinians for the collapse in the talks, but he placed much of the responsibility on Israel. Kerry claimed Israel’s refusal to release Palestinian prisoners, including convicted terrorists, as part of a gesture to Abbas, was behind the failure of the talks. Kerry ignored Abbas’s refusal to recognize the Jewish state’s existence or his drive to seek United Nations recognition despite a pledge not to do so. Kerry also did not mention the rampant anti-Israel incitement in official PA media. Soros, Gates Tied To Controversial Prison Firm Billionaires George Soros and Bill Gates – both outspoken supporters of immigration reform – are investors in a controversial private prison firm that houses detained illegal aliens. Soros and Gates are shareholders in GEO Group Inc., which operates prisons under contract with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE. GEO has been represented by the lobby firm headed by Tony Podesta, the brother of White House counselor and Center for American Progress founder John Podesta. GEO, the world’s largest operator of private prisons and detention centers, was known as the Wackenhut Corrections Corporation. It has faced a string of negative publicity following numerous Aaron Klein is Jerusalem bureau chief and senior reporter for WorldNetDaily.com. His website is KleinOnline.com.

deadly events in its prisons and accusations of inmate abuse and poor conditions. Among its 59 U.S. prison facilities is the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma, Wash. The GEO website describes the center as a “privately-owned detention facility under contract with Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) to house detainees pending removal process.” While Soros and Gates support numerous immigration activist groups through their respective foundations, the immigrant groups may be surprised to learn the Northwest Detention Center does not offer educational or vocational training programs to those housed in its complex. “Detainees may, however, participate in correspondence educational programs, at their own expense,” reads the center’s website. Besides his work on behalf of so-called immigrant rights, Soros reportedly recently also funded a Chicago non-profit that helped enroll prison inmates in Obamacare. The group, which calls itself Treatment Alternatives for Safe Communities, was also funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Obama Nominee Once Rummaged Through Classified Trash President Obama’s nominee for secretary of Health and Human Services is a former Bill Clinton deputy chief of staff who was once in the news for picking through Vince Foster’s classified office trash bin. Foster was Clinton’s deputy White House counsel and a law partner of Hillary Clinton. His 1993 suicide was the subject of much speculation and three official investigations. A 1995 Senate committee investigating the socalled Whitewater affair also probed Foster’s death. Whitewater refers to the Clintons’ controversial real estate investments, including investments into the Whitewater Development Corporation, a failed business venture. Last week, Obama introduced Sylvia Mathews Burwell, director of the White House Office of Management and Budget, as his nominee to replace Kathleen Sebelius as HHS secretary. Overlooked in the news media profiles of Burwell was her role in the Foster affair, particularly her possibly instrumental role in disposing of the contents of Foster’s classified office trash can. In 1993, Burwell, who then went only by her unmarried last name of Mathews, was an assistant to Clinton’s domestic policy adviser. The night of Foster’s suicide, Burwell reportedly “inventoried Foster’s trash,” claiming in testimony two years later that she was, according to a Los Angeles Times description, “looking, in vain, for some clue to why he killed himself.” At issue was what she may have found in Foster’s classified trash bin. She claimed to the Senate committee investigating the Whitewater affair that nothing in the trash shed light on Foster’s death or his state of mind at the time of his suicide. Another issue was that Burwell reportedly also retrieved what The New York Times described at the time as a “special bag of garbage containing classified and sensitive papers that was usually destroyed by the Secret Service.” The bag’s contents were reportedly never examined by anyone else. Burwell told the Senate committee she obtained the classified trash bag from the Secret Service and started looking though it until she realized that “it contained all of the classified garbage from the West Wing,” the Times reported. Upon that realization, Burwell said she sought the opinion of Clinton’s top attorney, Bernard W. Nussbaum, who told her Foster did not have a classified trash bin and that she should return the bag to Secret Service for disposal since it could not have contained any of Foster’s trash. However, it later emerged that Foster had a special classified garbage bin in his office and the bag – which was reportedly destroyed – may have contained Foster’s classified trash.

Sacks Continued from p.13 obey? The answer is a categorical No. The Talmud (Kiddushin 42b) puts this in the form of a rhetorical question: “Faced with a choice between obeying the master [God] or the disciple [a human leader], whom should you obey?” The answer is obvious. Obey God. Here in Jewish law is the logic of civil disobedience, the idea that we have a duty to disobey an immoral order. Then there is the great Jewish idea of active questioning and “argument for the sake of heaven.” Parents are obliged, and teachers encouraged, to train students to ask questions. Traditional Jewish learning is designed to make teacher and disciple alike aware of the fact that more than one view is possible on any question of Jewish law and multiple interpretations (the traditional number is seventy) of any biblical verse. Judaism is unique in that virtually all of its canonical texts – Midrash, Mishnah and Gemara – are anthologies of arguments (Rabbi X said this, Rabbi Y said that) or are surrounded by multiple commentaries, each with its own perspective. The very act of learning in rabbinic Judaism is conceived as active debate, a kind of gladiatorial contest of the mind: “Even a teacher and disciple, even a father and son, when they sit to study Torah together, become enemies to one another. But they do not move from there until they have become beloved to one another” (Kiddushin 30b). Hence the Talmudic saying, “Much wisdom I have learned from my teacher, more from my colleagues but most from my students” (Ta’anit 7a). Therefore, despite the reverence we owe our teachers, we also owe them our best efforts at questioning and challenging their ideas. This is essential to the rabbinical ideal of learning as a collaborative pursuit of truth. The idea of critical followership gave rise in udaism to the world s first social critics, the prophets, mandated by God to speak truth to power and to summon even kings to the bar of justice and right conduct. That is what Samuel did to Saul, Elijah to Ahab and Isaiah to Hezekiah. None did so more effectively than the prophet Nathan when, with immense skill, he got King David to appreciate the enormity of his sin in sleeping with another man’s wife. David immediately recognized his wrong and said “chatati – I have sinned.” Exceptional though the prophets of Israel were, even their achievement takes second place to one of the most remarkable phenomena in the history of religion, namely that God Himself chooses as His most beloved disciples the very people who are willing to challenge heaven itself. Abraham says, “Shall the Judge of all the earth not do justice?” Moses says, “Why have You done evil to this people?” Jeremiah and Habakkuk challenge God on the apparent injustices of history. Job, who argues with God, is eventually vindicated by God while his comforters, who defended God, are deemed by God to have been in the wrong. In short, God Himself chooses active,

critical followers rather than those who silently obey. Hence the unusual conclusion that in Judaism followership is as active and demanding as leadership. We can put this more strongly: leaders and followers do not sit on opposite sides of the table. They are on the same side, the side of justice and compassion and the common good. No one is above criticism, and no one too junior to administer it – if done with due grace and humility. A disciple may criticize his teacher; a child may challenge a parent; a prophet may challenge a king; and all of us, simply by bearing the name Israel, are summoned to wrestle with God and our fellow humans in the name of the right and the good. Uncritical followership and habits of silent obedience give rise to the corruptions of power, or sometimes simply to avoidable catastrophes. For example, a series of fatal accidents occurred between 1970 and 1999 to planes belonging to Korean Air. One in particular, Korean Air Flight 8509 in December 1999, led to a review that suggested that Korean culture, with its tendency toward autocratic leadership and deferential followership, may have een responsi le for the first officer not warning the pilot that he was off course. John F. Kennedy assembled one of the most talented group of advisers ever to serve an American president, yet in the Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba in 1961 committed one of the most foolish mistakes. Subsequently, one of the members of the group, Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., attributed the error to the fact that the atmosphere within the group was so convivial that no one wanted to disturb it by pointing out the folly of the proposal. Groupthink and conformism are perennial dangers within any closely-knit group. My favorite example is one given by James Surowiecki in The Wisdom of Crowds. He tells the story of how an American naturalist, William Beebe, came across a strange sight in the Guyana jungle. A group of army ants was moving in a huge circle. The ants went round and round in the same circle for two days until most of them dropped dead. The reason is that when a group of army ants is separated from their colony, they obey a simple rule: follow the ant in front of you. The trouble is that if the ant in front of you is lost, so will you be. Surowiecki’s argument is that we need dissenting voices, people who challenge the conventional wisdom, resist the fashionable consensus and disturb the intellectual peace. “Follow the person in front of you” is as dangerous to humans as it is to army ants. To stand apart and be willing to question where the leader is going is the task of the critical follower. Great leadership happens when there is strong and independently minded followership. Hence, when it comes to constructive criticism, a disciple may challenge a teacher and a prophet reprimand a king. Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks is the author of many books, most recently The Great Partnership: Science, Religion, and the Search for Meaning.

hile I find meaning in the enduring and the eternal. For I am charged with that most sacred mission, To transmit all that our forebears lived for, loved for and died for. I span the generations, Making the wisdom of the past live now So that the future will have meaning. I make wisdom live, for I am no mere bearer of knowledge. I do not simply teach the mind; I reach the heart. And when I reach the heart, I teach the soul. To those who say two generations hence, “What will I be if not a distant memory,” I respond: “Though the minds fade, memories linger. Though the body fails, the spirit prevails. Though the scroll burns, the letters dance in the air. Though we cease to be, through our children we live in eternity.” Truly I am part of this destiny, for I live in the world of tomorrow. I am a teacher!

William Rapfogel Pleads Guilty William Rapfogel, the ousted leader of the Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty in New York, pleaded guilty to first-degree larceny ednesday for his role in a scheme to steal more than $7 million from the social service agency. Rapfogel, who had served as CEO and president of the Met Council from 1992 until he was fired last August, entered a guilty plea in New York state Supreme Court in Manhattan, in a plea deal that calls for him to receive a - to -year prison sentence and repay the charity $3 million, according to Newsday. avid Cohen, Rapfogel’s predecessor at the council, also pleaded guilty

for his role in the scam. Rapfogel was fired after financial irregularities were discovered in an investigation initiated by the Met Council’s board of directors. New York State Attorney eneral Eric chneiderman and the state comptroller’s office then opened a probe. Rapfogel inflated the Met Council’s health insurance payments by several hundred thousand dollars a year and then split the proceeds with politicians who supplied grants to the agency. An annual breakfast he hosted drew many influential political figures. (JTA)

A Place Called Crown Heights By Penina Metal I pass by the house several times a week and whenever I do, a warm feeling enfolds me. It’s a simple two-story brick home, but to me this home symbolizes a very special time period that changed my life forever. So we will now go back on a time machine, back to the past and to the young 10-year-old I was when this story unfolds. My father, a”h, our shul’s secretary, came home with some interesting news that sent me into a tizzy. The shamus of our shul, Rabbi Moshe Margolin, a”h, (he was also an officer of Ezras Torah in New York City) had submitted his resignation to the shul’s board. He had assisted our rav, Rabbi Aaron R. Charney, a”h, for several years but was moving to, in Daddy’s words, “A place called Crown Heights, probably to ensure the likelihood of proper shidduchim for his children.” This explanation made absolutely no sense to me. First, the oldest child was only 13, so why should that be any consideration at this point in time? Second, and more importantly to me, what was I going to do when my best friend, Leah, was moving away to this faraway place called Crown Heights? I was inconsolable! To my dear mother’s credit, she arranged for me to spend Acharon Shel Pesach with the Margolins in Crown Heights. The Jewish flight from Crown Heights, which occurred in the mid-1960s, had not yet begun. Thus, there was standing room only on Eastern Parkway on a Yom Tov afternoon, as all manner of Jews sat and chatted on the benches dotting the parkway. I had never visited a frum neighborhood before. In Bayonne, New Jersey, where I grew up, although there was a kosher butcher shop, the “kosher” bakery was open on Shabbos. In the supermarket, Mommy would scrutinize every label marking the different foods. Oftentimes one could hear the clickety-clack of her typewriter as she inquired about the reliability of the various hechsherim that were posted on the different items. But no kosher grocery store existed. Imagine my excitement to find numerous kosher shops throughout the neighborhood. And the sound of Yiddish could be heard throughout the shechunah. Additionally, Reb Ben Zion Shenker, the ba’al menagen, was the Margolins’ upstairs neighbor. Many frum Jewish kinderlach played outdoors on the lovely Yom Tov afternoons. All this made it very hard for me to return home to Bayonne and continue to spend more lonely Shabbosos there. I vowed that when I would grow up, I would speak Yiddish to my kinderlach and I would move to “a place called Crown Heights.” Mommy wisely said nothing, assuming in her innocence that I would snap out of my irrational reverie before too long. But she was wrong. Those early childhood impressions stayed with me forever and I now live “in a place called Crown Heights.” In fact, I live around the corner from a certain nondescript two-family house where I experienced a wonderful Yom Tov that changed my life forever. * * * * *

Until this day she blesses me for those sefarim. She uses them to help her get through most of her challenges. She recently became a dialysis patient and her whole life focuses on the three days of treatment and its aftermath. (She is so happy to have Shabbos off.) She always has her Tehillim with her, and prays with it all the time. I continue to daven for her every day and check on her daily progress. On December 25 her husband became ill and was rushed to the hospital. The doctors told her that he had less than a five percent chance of survival after all the surgeries were completed. They basically offered no hope whatsoever. She whispered in his ear not to go to the “light” or to any deceased relatives that he might envision because we were all davening and saying Tehillim for his speedy recovery. As the doctors shook their heads, he came out of an induced coma. In disbelief the doctors said it was not their doing but rather a true miracle that such a choleh could survive this illness. He returned home a few days later. Right before lighting my Shabbos candles, I called them and Avram ben Dobrish an-

swered the phone. He told me to keep davening for him because nothing else worked to save him. Just to hear his voice – strong and alive – brought tears of happiness to my eyes. This is an example of the power of prayer. Even an atheist must sometimes believe. Here’s another reason why: My friend went into the hospital for a “quick, simple” procedure. Unfortunately, she suffered severe and significant complications. As a friend, all I could do was daven and say Tehillim on her behalf. Her prognosis was poor and she almost didn’t make it. I believe in the power of prayer through the recitation of Tehillim. I am grateful to HaKadosh Baruch Hu for giving us this precious tool for refuah. Elka Masha bas Rivka Chava still has a long road to recovery but she has the help of her many friends who daven on her behalf. Her husband, though not a believer, thanked me profusely for my prayers and kindness. My friend, like my cousin, returned home on the same day – before Shabbos. Such is the power of Tehillim.

While waiting on line, Mrs. Cooper met someone from her shul, Mrs. Fleisher, with a shopping cart containing 20 cans of tuna. “Could I have missed a sale here?” Mrs. Cooper asked herself. She turned to Mrs. Fleisher and asked, “Is there a sale on tuna?” “No,” replied Mrs. Fleisher. “However, I’m hosting a lot of people for Seudah Shelishis this week, so I need

a lot of tuna. The price is reasonable, though, $1.19 a can.” “I just picked up a case of tuna at the supermarket up the block, three for $2,” Mrs. Cooper said. “You may want to buy the tuna there.” Mrs. Fleisher thought for a moment. “Thanks a lot for telling me; I really appreciate it,” she exclaimed. “I was planning on going there anyway. Watch my wagon for a minute, while I return the tuna to the shelf.” She removed the tuna from the shopping cart and returned it to its place. The kosher store manager, who was standing nearby and overheard the discussion, gave Mrs. Cooper a disapproving look. Although he didn’t say anything, his frown made her wonder whether it was right of her to tell Mrs. Fleisher about the sale at the nearby big supermarket. Mrs. Cooper came home and asked her husband what he thought. “I have this dilemma all the time,” she said to him. “I could tell every customer where they could get a better bargain!” “I guess that until Mrs. Fleisher pays for the tuna, there’s no problem in retuning it to the shelf,” he said. “But I understand the ethical dilemma. You might want to try Rabbi Dayan and hear his perspective.” Mrs. Cooper called Rabbi Dayan and asked: “When I see someone in the process of buying something, can

What does it take to be a hero? By Mordechai Kastelbaum

It happens so often that we almost don’t notice it. We’re in Shul, at the supermarket, playing with our kids in the park, or just taking a stroll. Then we hear the familiar siren. Our neighborhood Hatzalah volunteer speeds away to respond to an emergency. Yes, it is a scene that we experience so often that we often forget what is actually taking place. It seems so natural to see a team of frum people helping a fellow Jew in need that it’s difficult to imagine a time when someone would dial 911 in an emergency. Let’s take a look behind the scenes to see what takes place during a Hatzalah call. At Hatzalah’s command center, a group of dispatchers is on call 24/7 to field a vast array of calls for help. It takes about 15 seconds to assess the situation and put out a call for assistance. These dispatchers volunteer to work in shifts at all hours of the day and night. They have families, they have jobs, they have responsibilities… but they also have Hatzalah. When the community needs their help, they step up to the plate to help. Within about 60 seconds, a volunteer will answer and quickly make his way to the scene of the emergency. This process happens at lightning speed, with an average response time of just a few minutes. Oh, what it takes to be a Haztalah volunteer. Sometimes it seems almost glamorous to bystanders, yet few really appreciate the dedication that it entails. It means a commitment to respond – at a moment’s notice – to an emergency at any time, 24/7/365. Literally, 24/7/365. It means dropping everything in middle of a work day, sometimes to return after an hour or more, after transporting the patient to the hospital. It means being in a constant state of alert, in case a call comes out in the neighborhood. It means running out in middle of dinnertime or on Shabbos afternoon. Or even in middle of Kol Nidrei or the Pesach Seder. That’s real commitment! At the scene of the emergency, a pair of members immediately begins to stabilize the patient. These crucial moments require a strong background in medical training, know-how, and plain common sense. All the while, they must take the whole situation into account, calming frightened parents or family members and relaying important information to the command center. It starts with an initial period of training and orientation, followed by ongoing education in the latest techniques which take place every few months. And of course, there are tests and regular reviews to ensure that every member is performing satisfactorily. It takes a lot to become a Hatzalah member and takes even more to maintain that membership. It’s a whole career of its own. If only people knew! What is most remarkable is that EVERY Hatzalah member is a volunteer. They don’t get paid for their time and heroic efforts, and many times they don’t even get a thank you. They work under some of the most intense conditions, both physically and emotionally, yet they are always level-headed and calm in these harrowing circumstances. It is no surprise that Hatzalah has dedicated the annual Dinner/BBQ in honor of its 125 members. Nor is it an overstatement to proclaim them to be our community heroes. After all, do you know of any other group of people who are so wholly devoted to their neighborhood, and indeed, to Klal Yisroel? Yet, according to insiders, from the 10,000+ local Jewish residents that benefit from Hatzalah’s constant guard, only about 10% participate in the annual dinner, their most important fundraiser of the year. It costs more than $1,000,000 annually for Hatzalah to operate, but the cost is utterly insignificant when compared to the enormous impact that the organization has. Just talk to any person whose life has been saved by Hatzalah. Or speak to their father or mother, husband or wife. Ask them what Hatzalah is truly worth to the community. It is simply invaluable. Aside from providing the crucial funds that enable Hatzalah to function on a daily basis, the dinner also gives us, the lucky beneficiaries of Hatzalah’s work, the opportunity to give chizuk and much due credit to the valiant volunteers. It sends a strong, united message that we notice, we care, and we truly appreciate their devotion. And, just as importantly, it encourages their families – both their wives and their children – who also sacrifice so much to enable Hatzalah to continue and thrive. Whether we have personally called Hatzalah or not, we all owe a great debt of gratitude, both to the organization and to its amazing volunteers that keep our community safe. The Annual Dinner/BBQ will take place on May 4th at the Sands and the suggested annual contribution is $250. It is a small donation that goes a long way in protecting our families, our neighbors and the entire community. On May 4th, take a moment from your schedule to show your support for our Heroes. They deserve it! Log on today to place an ad in the Commemorative Virtual Journal and make your reservations at www.HatzalahRL.org/BBQ.


SHABBOS-FRIENDLY MOBILITY • 1-855-SHAB-LIFT (742Friday, April 25, 2014

When the Torah mentions the obligation to rebuke a fellow Jew, it ends with the words, “and do not bear a sin because of him” (Vayikra 19:17). The Targum translates this as, “and do not receive a punishment for his sin.” According to the Targum, it appears that if Reuven ate a ham sandwich and I didn’t rebuke him, I would e punished for his sin. his seems difficult to understand. Why should I be punished for his sin? At most, you might argue that if I was capable of rebuking him and didn’t, I would be responsible for the sin of not rebuking him. But how do I become responsible for the sin he perpetrated? He transgressed it; I didn’t. The answer to this question is based on understanding the connection one Jew has to another. The Kli Yakar brings a mashol. Imagine a man who is on an ocean voyage. One morning, he hears a strange rattling sound coming from the cabin next to his. As the noise continues, he becomes more and more curious until finally he noc s on his neighbor’s door. When the door opens, he sees that his neighbor is drilling a hole in the side of the boat. “What are you doing?” the man cries. “Oh, I’m just drilling,” the neighbor answers simply. “Drilling?” “Yes. I’m drilling a hole in my side of the boat.” “Stop that!” the man says. “But why?” asks the neighbor. “This is my cabin. I paid for it, and I can do what I want here.” “No, you can’t! If you cut a hole in your side, the entire boat will go down.” The nimshol is that the Jewish people is one entity. For a Jew to say, “What I do is my business and doesn’t affect anyone else,” is categorically false. My actions affect you, and your actions affect me – we are one unit. It is as if I have co-signed on your loan. If you default on your payments, the bank will come after me. I didn’t borrow the money but I am responsible. So too when we accepted the Torah together on Har Sinai, we became one unit, functioning as one people. If you default on your obligations, they come to me and demand payment. We are teammates, and I am responsible for your performance. The Targum is teaching us the extent of that connection. What Reuven does directly affects me – not because I am nosy or a busybody, but because we are one entity, so much so that I am liable for what he does. If he sins and I could have prevented it, that comes back to me. A member of my team transgressed, and I could have stopped it from happening. If I did all that I could have to help him grow and shield him from falling, I have met my obligation and will not be punished. If, however, I could have been more concerned for his betterment and more involved in helping to protect him from harm and didn’t, I am held accountable for his sin. This perspective is central to understanding why rebuke doesn’t work. When Reuven goes over to Shimon and “gives it to him good,” really shows just what did wrong, the only thing accomplished is that now Shimon hates Reuven. o properly fulfill the mitzvah of tochachah, there are two a solute requirements. he first relates to attitude, the second to method. What’s My Intention? When I go over to my friend to chastise him, the first question must as myself is hat is my intention?” If my intention is to set him straight and stop him from doing a terrible sin, I will almost certainly fail. he only intention that fits the role of a successful mochiah is: “This is my friend; I am concerned for his good.”

CHODESH TOV RABBI HANOCH TELLER

Breakfast And Happiness (Part VII) Who is going to be happier, the person who is grateful for being alive or the person who takes it for granted? Religion inculcates gratitude to instill obedience to the Lord, and the byproduct is contented people. If one were to focus – merely pay attention – when making a berachah, not only would the Almighty be happy, so would the one offering the blessing. Berachos inculcate gratitude; the more you appreciate, the happier you are. The Jew begins his day by saying: “Modeh ani l’fanecha, melech chai v’kayam… – I am grateful to be alive another day before the King…” Could there be a better way to start the day? Not everyone wakes up in the morning, and I am so happy to be among the fortunate ones. I once brought a not-yet-religious guest we had over for Shabbos to the Neve Yerushalayim seminary for beginners. Years later she confessed that when she walked into the dining room and saw everyone talking to their food before they ate it, she thought that they were really spaced out. But now, years later after ecoming religious herself she finds berachos her fulcrum for appreciation and subsequent

happiness. The common perception is that happiness is awaited. Accordingly, people expectantly go through their lives awaiting the event that will make them happy. f only find the right girl or land the right o ll be happy.” (One cannot deny that the right one is a big help and the wrong one is a big hindrance.) The common question, “What makes you happy?” assumes that generally one is not happy; something must occur to make one happy. It would be far more productive to think au contraire. Unless something is actively impinging on your happiness, be happy. There is so much to make one happy, content, appreciative and grateful. Thus the default should be, “happy.” The alternative is being chronically unhappy. f one were to ma e a list five years ago an insight from Dennis Prager) of the things that would make you happy, chances are that most of that list has been achieved. But are you happy? In all likelihood the answer is negative, which means that there is either something wrong with your list or something wrong with your attitude. Prager further pointed out that most people associate happiness with fun, but the words are not synonymous and the concepts vary sharply. Fun is the oy you experience during an act happiness is the subsequent state. In other words, the tingle on the tongue from Coca ola is fun. ut when it is over it s over. i ewise a roller coaster ride and a humorous video clip. These may be fun activities, but they do not make you happy. Sometimes engaging in fun can diminish happiness. t s fun to eat cheeseca e ut once you get on the scale, you are less happy than when you ate the cake. Attending a sporting event is fun, but afterwards when you are caught in stadium traffic you are hardly happy. How much more so if the fun activity was sinful. The reason that fun cannot provide happiness – indeed diminishes the chance of achieving happiness – is twofold. Firstly because fun is a drug, and like all drugs, you must always increase the dosage. Yesterday s fun does not satisfy as much today hence you must up the dosage. It used to be fun skiing, but now you must ski slalom or ungee ump or attempt s ydiving. he list of extreme sports is ever expanding. Horror movies of yore do not provide the same punch of terror as contemporaneous genre. omorrow s films will contain even more blood, organs and severed body parts in order to raise the adrenalin level and keep you scared. The same is applicable to anything associated with fun. e it a car a new dress ewelry or heroin. s long as fun is confused with happiness the o ect that provides happiness today will be lacking next year. This is not to say that there is no place for fun, but it would be best viewed as a spice. Spices are wonderful to enliven bland food, but they cannot sustain by themselves. Living only for fun would be comparable to being nourished solely by oregano and thyme. It will kill you. Hence fun, if not viewed as a spice but as the source for happiness, will become addictive and therefore destructive. (To be continued)

Footballs’ 49ers rarely drop the ball. But how many of us make it through 49 nights from the second night of Pesach all the way to Shavuot without losing count? Sometimes we never even make it to the first yard line. e are so usy preparing for second night Seder that we miss evening prayers in shul and forget to count Day One. Sefirat Ha mer, the counting of the forty-nine days, connects the festival of Pesach, which celebrates the Exodus, to the Festival of Shavuot, which celerates the giving of the orah. hile still enslaved in Egypt, the Jews were told that following the Exodus, “Taavdun lo im al hahar hazeh,” they would receive the Torah at Mount Sinai. The extra Hebrew letter “nun” appended to the word “Taavdun” was a message to the enslaved ews that fifty days after the Exodus their status would be changed at Sinai from servants of Pharaoh to servants of God. In anticipation of the evelation the ews egan to count fifty days toward Shavuot. Sefirat Ha mer is linked to three concepts: (1) the omer sacrifice chadash or new grain and (3) the two loaves of bread brought on Shavuot as a first harvest offering to God, bi urim l Hashem.” The omer sacrifice n the evening preceding the 16th day of Nissan, the Jews of Temple times would go out into the fields and cut sheaves of arley. he arley would then e ground into our and rought to the Temple on the 16th day together with a male lamb in its first year. Chadash: Until the omer sacrifice was rought on the eve of the sixteenth of Nissan of the current year as described, it was prohibited to harvest barley, wheat, oats, rye and spelt crops which had been planted or had taken root after the sixteenth of Nis-

san of the previous year. Such forbidden crops were called chadash and could be harvested and eaten only after the completion of the omer sacrifice. i urim: On the festival of Shavuot the first harvest wheat offering was brought consisting of two loaves of baked bread together with seven sheep, one bull and two rams. he orah eviticus as s us to egin counting seven complete weeks starting on the evening of the omer sacrifice. he am am explains that seven weeks were required to raise the Jewish nation out of the depths of despondency to which they had sun during their slavery. hereas one wee is sufficient to restore an individual to his natural state of divine purity, the entire nation required seven weeks. The omer sacrifice of loose arley our was more fitting for animal consumption than human consumption and symbolizes the depths to which the Jewish slaves had sunk. The bi urim sacrifice of wheat a ed read sym oli es the refined spiritual heights they reached by Shavuot. After the destruction of the Temple, the omer sacrifice ecame inapplica le. hat a out chadash? Is one permitted to harvest or eat chadash prior to the day the omer sacrifice would have been offered had the Temple not been destroyed? And what about Sefirat Ha mer? If it is linked to the omer sacrifice why has it survived the destruction of the emple hether or not chadash applies outside Israel depends on the interpretation of the words “bechol moshvoteichem” in the verse (Leviticus which prohi its chadash “in all your dwellings.” According to the rabbis (Kiddushin 47a), the words “in all your dwellings” do not apply outside the land of Israel but rather to the land of Israel after the first fifteen years of its conquest and division y oshua. According to Rabbi Eliezer, however, the words “bechol moshvoteichem” give chadash a worldwide application even today. Rabbi Eliezer’s view is adopted by most of the ishonim. The Shulchan Aruch rules that chadash applies inside and outside Israel and to Jewish and non-Jewish-owned lands. Nevertheless, based on the

Pirkei Avot (Part I) Question: I have two questions regarding Pirkei Avot. First, is there a specific reason that the last chapter is read on the Sabbath before Shavuot, or is this just a quirk of the calendar? Second, in that last chapter we find a list of qualities that enable one to acquire Torah knowledge, including anavah, humility. I find this difficult to believe in light of the Gemara in Gittin that chastises one of the scholars for his anavah, saying that it ultimately caused the destruction of the Beit Hamikdash. Zvi Kirschner (Via E-Mail) Answer: From your question, some readers might mistakenly conclude that Pirkei Avot is only studied between Pesach and Shavuot. Such is not the case. In fact, halacha specifies that we study Pirkei Avot all through the summer (Rema, Orach Chayim 292:2): “We are accustomed not to organize a study session [on Shabbat afternoon] between Minchah and Ma’ariv, but we do recite Pirkei Avot in the summer [i.e., from the first Shabbat after Pesach until the Shabbat before Rosh Hashanah] and Shir Hama’alot [a collection of chapters of Tehillim that includes Borechi Nafshi (Psalm 104) and the series of Shir Hama’alot (Psalms 120-134)] in the winter.” The Magen Avraham (ad loc.), citing the Mordechai, explains why we don’t organize a study session between Minchah and Ma’ariv: We fear that the study session will continue until chashechah (dusk), and we won’t have an opportunity to partake of the seudah shelishit. (This explanation, incidentally, seems to contradict those who maintain that in times of need – such as when erev Pesach falls on Shabbat – the study of Torah satisfies the seudah shelishit requirement.) The Gaon of Vilna (in Biur HaGra) explains why Shir Hama’alot are recited in the winter and Pirkei Avot in the summer. As winter days are short, with Minchah relatively close to nightfall, there is little time for both Torah study and seudah shelishit. In the summer months, however, when the days are longer, there is time for both. The Chafetz Chaim notes (in his Sha’ar HaTziyyun commentary) that the study of Pirkei Avot differs from in-depth study, which we avoid even in the summer months because it may interfere with the seudah shelishit. He says that Pirkei Avot is just an utterance, an amirah – something we recite as opposed to something we analyze. He also says (in his Mishnah Berurah commentary) that since many people come to shul on Shabbat afternoon and engage in idle conversation, it is beneficial for people to listen to words reproof that will cause them to refrain from such idle conversations. (Obviously, when we refer to summer and winter in this discussion, we refer to the times when the applicable prayers for these seasons begin. The “summer” begins on Pesach, when we start saying “veten berachah” and “morid hatal,” which are our summer prayers for dew. The “winter” begins at the conclusion of Sukkot, when we start saying the prayers for rain – “mashiv haruach” and subsequently “tal Rabbi Yaakov Klass, rav of Congregation K’hal Bnei Matisyahu in Flatbush, Brooklyn, is Torah Editor of The Jewish Press.

Dignity R’ Akiva had twelve thousand pairs of disciples…and all of them died at the same time because they did not treat each other with respect. – Yevamos 62b To illustrate the prestige and stature of R’ Akiva’s disciples, we will describe the greatness of the Tanna R’ Meir Bal HaNess, who was one of R’ Akiva’s students. The Talmud states (Eruvin 13b), “In his generation there was none equal to him. Why wasn’t the halacha determined according to his views? Because his colleagues could not fathom the depths of his mind …he was called Meir because he enlightened the sages in halacha…R’ Yehuda HaNasi said that the reason he, personally, was sharper than his colleagues is because he sat behind R’ Meir. Had he sat facing him he would have been even sharper.” Nevertheless, when he came to learn with R’ Akiva he could not grasp his lectures and he went to learn by R’ Yishmael. He then returned to R’ Akiva and ultimately sat at the head. All 24,000 disciples of R’ Akiva were of this caliber. When these 24,000 talmidim died, because they did not give honor to each other, the entire world was left desolate. Rashi explains that the mitzvah of “v’hadarta pnei zakein” refers to honoring a sage, or one who is acquired wisdom. The halacha is that two talmidei chachamim do not have to stand up for each other and it is sufficient for them to acknowledge each other, i.e. it’s a nice thing to do. We learn that 930 different types of death were created in the world, and the disciples of R’ Akiva were afflicted with the most dreadful one. Why was this their fate? What provoked the anger of Hashem? The Maharsha writes that it is possible that they spoke lashon hara about each other. But this is difficult to understand, for it is neither mentioned explicitly nor are we inclined to hunt for aveiros one may have committed. R’ Yeruchem of the Mir clarifies the Maharsha by citing Rashi’s statement (Bereishis 32:11) that Yaakov was afraid he did not deserve to be saved from Eisav because his merits had been diminished and he may have become sullied by sin. The Ramban points out that Yaakov himself testified that he had lived with Lavan and guarded the 613 mitzvos, whereas Eisav committed five major aveiros in one day (Bava Basra 16b). He notes, though, that tzad-

u’matar li’veracha.”) Since there are six Sabbaths between Pesach and Shavuot and there are six chapters in Pirkei Avot, we devote an entire Shabbat to the study of each chapter. After Shavuot, specifically in the month of Elul, there are weeks when we study two chapters on one Shabbat. We always read the last chapter on the Shabbat before Shavuot and the fifth and sixth chapters together on the Shabbat before Rosh Hashanah. This last chapter is referred to as Kinyan HaTo-

dikim are always fearful of sin. Was Yaakov afraid of the two mitzvos in which Eisav excelled – kibbud av v’eim and yishuv Eretz Yisroel? It is explained that Yaakov was the superior of the avos, and he was held responsible for even the most minor infraction. For Eisav, who had cast off the ol malchus Shamayim – the yoke of the Heavenly Kingdom – his two mitzvos were indeed very significant. We learn that Hashem is very exacting with tzaddikim and they are held to a higher standard. R’ Akiva expounded and exemplified the mitzvah of loving one’s friend like one’s self. By not giving honor to one another, as the disciples of R’ Akiva, they were held accountable for the lapse, and it was considered as if they had spoken lashon hara about their colleague. Therefore, their deaths were warranted. The eminent rosh yeshiva R’ Isser Zalman Meltzer was often consulted by the greatest talmidei chachamim in the world. He was known far and wide for his genius, his brilliance, and his righteousness. Once, related Rav Yaakov Galinsky, special arrangements were made for him to come and test the students of Yeshiva Eitz Chaim. It was a momentous occasion – a great honor for the yeshiva as well as the students. When he entered the room, a hush fell over the entire assemblage. His first question concerned a comment of Tosfos on the tractate of Talmud that the students were studying. One of the students immediately volunteered an erroneous answer. R’ Isser Zalman did not want the child to be embarrassed in any way, so he quickly said, “Perhaps you mean to explain it like this” and offered an alternate explanation. However, the child adamantly said, “No, that’s not how I was going to explain it,” and he continued with his unsound response. R’ Isser Zalman then said, “Perhaps you meant to say this” and offered another explanation. Once again the child said “no” and insisted on staying on course with his explanation. The teachers who were gathered were losing their patience, but R’ Isser Zalman – who never wasted a moment of his time – continued unsuccessfully for more than ten minutes to deflect the child’s answers in a way that would preserve his dignity. The child, however, was unyielding and stubbornly maintained his line of thinking. Finally, R’ Isser Zalman excused himself and left the room. He began to pace the hall, whispering to himself, “Kavod habriyos includes children as well.” When he returned to the room he started from the beginning, as if he had just encountered the child for the first time, and elaborated on the words of Tosfos in a way that saved the feelings and the honor of the child.

rah (lit., “the method of acquiring Torah”). It is not part of the original mishnayot compiled by R. Yehudah HaNasi, but is rather a compilation of Tannaitic Beraitot that were subsequently added and appear in the Vilna Shas as the sixth chapter of this tractate. The term Kinyan HaTorah is based on two mishnayot (6:5-6). (In most siddurim, the list of the 48 qualities through which one acquires Torah knowledge is included in mishnah 6:6; however, in the Vilna Shas it is split into mishnayot 6:5 and 6:6.)

Altered States

‘Examining A Bechor Is Not The Same’ (Beizah 27a) The commentators ask why examining a firstborn animal to see whether it has a blemish – which will determine its future status – is different from examining the organs of a slaughtered bird or animal to determine whether it is a tereifah. Rashi (s.v. “alma…”) explains that a ruling regarding kashrus is not comparable to mesaken (a “repair”). A kashrus decision only clarifies and confirms the halacha; the ruling does not establish a new status nor does it revise a food’s previous status. However, mesaken actually gives an object a new status. In the case of a bechor, the expert’s pronouncement actually renders the bechor permitted (to be given to a kohen). This week’s Daf Yomi Highlights is based upon Al Hadaf, published by Cong. Al Hadaf, 17N Rigaud Rd., Spring Valley, NY 10977-2533. Al Hadaf published semi-monthly, is available by subscription: U.S. – $40 per year; Canada – $54 per year; overseas – $65 per year. For dedication information, contact Rabbi Zev Dickstein, editor, at 845-356-9114 or visit Alhadafyomi.org.

A Treasury of Torah Riddles Rabbi Mordechai Weintraub, z”l

Solutions To Last Week’s Torah Riddles Torah Personalities Riddle: Who is considered a tzaddik even though he sinned most of his life? Solution: According to the Gemara (Sanhedrin 99a), a ba’al teshuvah becomes a tzaddik. Laws Riddle: What single act need a person perform to acquire property in different locations from the same owner? Solution: A chazakah (Bava Basra 67a). This is because of the Talmudic rule: “All parts of the world are connected to each other.” Times And Places Riddle: What is considered a Yom Tov for women but not for men? Solution: Rosh Chodesh. The Mishnah Berurah (417:1) offers this explanation: “Rosh Chodesh was declared a Yom Tov for women because they did not take off their nose rings for the golden calf.”

This Week’s Torah Riddles Torah Personalities Riddle: Which biblical figure had a son who was a kohen, another son who was a king, and a daughter who was a prophetess?

What Is Forbidden? The Taz (Orach Chayim 498:9) draws a different distinction. In the case of a questionable tereifah, the rabbi’s ruling is not so significant because he does not change the animal’s chazakah since an animal is presumed to have been born without a defect. Therefore, his ruling is not nir’eh ke’mesaken. In contrast, regarding a bechor (which is also considered to have been born without a defect), the established presumption is that it is forbidden for slaughter (outside the Beis Hamikdash) until we can prove that that it has developed a blemish. Ruling that a bechor developed a blemish alters the status of the animal and therefore is nir’eh ke’mesaken.

What We Have Seen The Korban Nesanel (os 40) disagrees, arguing that he has seen numerous rabbis who issued such rulings on Yom Tov. Moreover, he cites the Terumas HaDeshen (siman 54, as cited by the Magen Avraham, Orach Chayim 323:14) who explicitly permits rabbis to rule in this manner. A Bechor Is Different Nonetheless, the Korban Nesanel agrees that one cannot permit a bechor on Shabbos or Yom Tov. He explain that an expert’s ruling on a bechor’s blemish is akin to a judgment in a monetary lawsuit (which the Mishanh forbids on Shabbos and Yom Tov) because it results in a transfer of ownership. The firstborn animal is initially in the possession of hekdesh, and through the expert’s ruling it is transferred to the possession of a kohen. This type of ruling is similar to a monetary judgment whereby, as a result of the judge’s ruling, the defendant pays money to the plaintiff.

An Established Status According to the Taz, there are certain halachic rulings that cannot be made on Yom Tov. Suppose that before Yom Tov one had a mixture of kosher and non-kosher meat that was forbidden because most of that mixture consisted of non-kosher meat. On Yom Tov additional pieces of kosher meat fell into the mixture, and a rabbi is asked to determine whether the mixture is now permitted because it might consist mostly of kosher meat. Since the mixture was initially forbidden, the Taz would not allow the rabbi to issue a ruling on Shabbos or Yom Tov to permit it since such a ruling would alter the established status of the mixture.

A Word Of Caution Even though the Terumas HaDeshen permits a rabbi to rule on whether bittul has occurred in a mixture, he says that directly causing bittul by intentionally adding kosher meat to a mixture is forbidden because that is certainly considered an act of mesaken.

Laws Riddle: When can a person smell the ketores without being punished?

THIS WEEK’S LUACH

Times And Places Riddle: On what day can a man’s heavenly accusers not denounce him? Historical Events Riddle: What instrument was only used by Moshe and not by any of his successors? The solutions to these Torah Riddles, plus additional Torah Riddles, will appear in next week’s column.

(continued from p.7) This Shabbos is Shabbos Mevarchim, we bless the new moon. Rosh Chodesh Iyar is 2 days, Wednesday and Thursday. The molad is Tuesday afternoon, 38 minutes and 10 chalakim (a chelek is 1/18 of a minute) past 4:00 p.m. (in Jerusalem). Rosh Chodesh Iyar (first day), starts Tuesday evening. Maariv: we add Ya’aleh VeYavo; if one forgot to say Ya’aleh VeYavo, at Maariv only, one does not repeat (see Shulchan Aruch, Orach Chayyim 422:1 – based on Berachos 30b – explains this as due to the fact that we do not sanctify the new month at night, and this rule applies even when Rosh Chodesh is two days). Wednesday morning; Shacharis: usual tefilla with inclusion of Ya’aleh VeYavo in the Shemoneh Esreh, half-Hallel, Kaddish Tiskabbel. We take out one Torah scroll. We read in Parashas Pinchas (Bamidbar 28:1-15), we call four Aliyos (Kohen, Levi, Yisrael, Yisrael), the ba’al keriah recites half-Kaddish. We return the Torah to the Aron, Ashrei, U’va LeTziyyon – we delete La’menatze’ach. Chazzan says half-Kaddish, all then remove their tefillin. Mincha: In the Shemoneh Esreh we say Ya’aleh VeYavo, followed by chazzan’s repetition and Kaddish Tiskabbel, Aleinu and Mourner’s Kaddish. Birkas Hamazon: In the Grace after Meals we add Ya’aleh VeYavo, as well as mention of Rosh Chodesh in Beracha Acharona (Me’ein Shalosh) at all times. Wednesday eve. and Thursday, 2nd day Rosh Chodesh, the order of the day is the same as yesterday. Kiddush Levana at first opportunity (we usually wait until Motza’ei Shabbos).

Auto Orlian Continued from p.22 I tell her where she can get it cheaper?” “There are two conflicting responsibilities here,” replied Rabbi Dayan. “The answer depends mostly on whether the person has already made a firm decision to purchase the item.” “What do you mean?” asked Mr. Cooper. “On the one hand, there is a prohibition against causing damage to the storeowner,” explained Rabbi Dayan. “This is true not only for direct damage, but also for indirect damage [grama]. On the other hand, there is a responsibility to spare the customer from loss, which is extension of hashavas aveidah.” (C.M. and GR”A 378:1) “So how do we deal with this?” asked Mr. Cooper. “The Gemara [B.B. 21b] indicates that when someone is surely expecting revenue, such as a fisherman closing in on a certain fish, thwarting him is considered damage,” replied Rabbi Dayan. “The Chasam Sofer [C.M. 379] extends this to a customer who has decided to purchase. Then, you should not help the customer through causing the storeowner damage. However, if the customer is still deliberating whether to buy the item, the storeowner cannot consider him as sure revenue. Therefore, the mitzvah of hashavas aveidah would warrant sparing the customer the extra cost.” (Mishpetai Hatorah, Hashavas Aveidah #8) “Are there other relevant factors?”

asked Mrs. Cooper. “If the customer initiates and asks, you are required to respond with proper advice,” replied Rabbi Dayan. “Also, if the customer is your relative, you can advise her even if she already decided to buy the item, since there is a priority to look out for the welfare of your relatives. In addition, if the storeowner is demanding an unfair price or cheating the customer on quality, you should inform the customer; this is not considered causing the storeowner damage. In all cases, though, you must be careful not to speak lashon hara about the store. You can say, ‘The item is cheaper at the other store,’ but should not say, ‘Prices here are always in the sky!’” (See Chofetz Chaim, Rechilus 9:10) “Does it make a difference whether the store is Jewish owned?” asked Mrs. Cooper. “If the store is not Jewish owned, it is permissible to alert a Jewish customer of possible saving,” replied Rabbi Dayan. “Although damaging a non-Jew is also prohibited, discouraging potential customers in this way is not considered causing damage in that case. Therefore, the mitzvah of hashavas aveidah to the fellow Jew remains.” (See Pischei Choshen, Geneivah 9:1; Nezikin 9:2) Rabbi Meir Orlian is a faculty member of the Business Halacha Institute.

The Blue Card Pays Homage To Holocaust Remembrance Day With Fundraising Social The Blue Card, a national non-profit organization dedicated to aiding over 2,000 needy Holocaust survivors, recently announces its annual fundraising social event, Pong on the Terrace, which takes place on Thursday, May 1 from 6:30 - 9:30 p.m. on the Sunset Terrace at Chelsea Piers. The event is open to the public. Tickets may be purchased by visiting the organization’s website (bluecardfund.org) and, in the top-right corner, clicking on the Bluecard Events link, and then clicking the Ping Pong Social box. Featuring a competitive ping pong tournament, open bar, silent auction and panoramic views of the Hudson River at sunset, the event will be graced by Aviva Sufian, The White House’s first special envoy for U.S. Holocaust Survivor Services and Ambassador Ido Aharoni, consul general of Israel in New York, who will provide opening remarks.

23:16) to mean Sunday. Because the Torah requires one to count “seven complete weeks” one should count at the beginning of the day, which in Jewish law begins on the preceding night. The optimum time to recite Sefirat HaOmer is after Maariv immediately following the appearance of three stars. If however it is difficult to find a minyan at that late hour, one should recite Sefirat HaOmer with an earlier Maariv minyan, even at plug haMinchah time, without a blessing, rather than wait and count alone. On Friday night and Yom Tov night, Sefirat HaOmer is recited in the synagogue after Kiddush and at home before Kiddush. On Motzaei Shabbat, Sefirat HaOmer is recited after Kaddish Titkabal and before Havdalah. Based on the verse referring to “standing grain” (Deuteronomy 16:9), one should count standing. As with the lulav, so too with the omer, one must count oneself (ulekachtem lachem, usefartem lachem) and one cannot rely on someone else to count on one’s behalf. Women are not obliged to count but may volunteer to count the omer with a blessing. The verse that requires one to count “seven complete weeks” means that if one missed a whole day and did not remember to count until the following night, one can no longer recite the blessing before counting on the following days. If, however, one remembered one’s omission during the day, including

Continued from p.26 Rema as clarified by the Shach, one may eat chadash outside of Israel on the strength of the halachic rule of double doubt and the halachic rule of the majority. The double doubt is as follows: (a) perhaps the grain took root in the previous year, and (b) even if not, it can be assumed that the grain took root at least in time before the 16th of Nissan. The rule of the majority is that most grain has been stored for a long time and comes from previous year’s crops. As for Sefirat HaOmer, the majority opinion (with which the Rambam disagrees) is that it has no biblical application today and was instituted by the rabbis zecher leMikdash, in memory of the Temple. The Torah (Leviticus 23:15-16) requires one to count both the days and the weeks of the omer. On the first day one counts “Yom echad la’omer” not “Yom rishon la’omer” so as to make it perfectly clear that the first day of the omer is the day following the first day of Pesach and not the day following Shabbat. In so doing we reject the opinion of the Sadducees who interpreted the words “mimochorat  hashabbat” (Leviticus

at twilight, before nightfall, one may count that day without the blessing, and on the following days one may count with a blessing. Based on the majority opinion that Sefirat HaOmer today is of rabbinical origin, if one is not sure whether one counted the previous day, one may continue to count the following days with a blessing. If one is asked at twilight what day of the omer it will be tonight, one should reply with yesterday’s count, but if asked before twilight one may reply with tonight’s count. According to some opinions, a rabbi or a chazzan who leads the counting of the omer may recite the blessing, even if he knows he omitted a previous day’s count. A person who crosses the dateline and gains or loses a day may, according to certain halachic opinions, disregard the local count and continue counting, as he would back home.

Continued from p.23 If I am looking out for kavod Shamayaim, or if I am a do-gooder concerned for the betterment of the world, my words will accomplish the exact opposite of their intended purpose. I won’t succeed in separating my friend from the sin; I will only succeed in separating him from me. he first requirement for the proper fulfillment of tochachah is that it must be out of love and concern for my friend. The second condition for tochachah to be effective has to with the way it is delivered. Do You Shout When You Put on Tefillin? The Chofetz Chaim was once approached by a certain community leader who complained that no matter how much he reproached the people of his town, they didn’t listen. The Chofetz Chaim asked this person to describe how he went about rebuking his townspeople. The man described his method of yelling fiery words at them. he Chofetz Chaim asked him, “Tell me, when you put on tefillin, do you shout and carry on? Why do you feel the obligation to do so when you do this mitzvah?” One of the most basic concepts of human relations is that people hate criti-

cism. We hate it worse than poison, and we avoid it like the plague. When you criticize me, I become hypersensitive. If you whisper, I hear it as loud speech, and when you speak quietly, I hear it as if you are shouting in my ears. Being aware of this is vital in choosing the method, tone, and words with which I approach my friend. The mitzvah of tochachah is to help my friend improve. Without a strategy that is sensitive to human nature, even the best of intentions will ac fire. o succeed in this mitzvah, I need to choose my words very carefully, making sure they are as soft and non-offensive possible. This is the second requirement of the mitzvah. The reality is that this is a very difficult mitzvah to perform correctly. ypically we find ourselves either not wanting to get involved or saying things that cause more harm than good. But when the driving force in doing this mitzvah is concern for the good of our friends, and we carefully study human nature and choose our words guardedly, Hashem will help us to perform it properly.

TouroCOM Students Find Success On Match Day Students graduating from Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine (TouroCOM) in Harlem in June have completed an outstanding round of residency matches for fall, according to results from the school’s fourth consecutive Match Day. Out of the 131 students eligible for matches in the class of 2014, 98 percent were successfully matched – with many going to the most respected residency programs in the country. “The class of 2014 has performed well throughout their training. These students continue to prove themselves by the successes shown in their matches to such fine institutions in New York, New Jersey and throughout the country,” said Dr. Robert B. Goldberg, Dr. Robert B. Goldberg, dean dean and professor and professor at TouroCOM. at TouroCOM. “Our graduates are well prepared to meet the needs of the medically underserved people of all backgrounds. e send them off with pride and confidence. n a press releases issued y the school officials said that “TouroCOM is committed to training osteopathic physicians, with a particular emphasis on practicing medicine in underserved communities, and to increasing the number of underrepresented minorities in medicine. A cornerstone of the school’s mission is to graduate qualified osteopathic physi-

cians into primary care residencies in specialties including family medicine, pediatrics, internal medicine, obstetrics and gynecology.” “TouroCOM graduates continue to distinguish themselves by placing into many of the most prestigious residency programs in New York and across the United States, in the most desirable specialties,” said Dr. Kenneth J. Steier, dean and professor at the TouroCOM-Middletown Campus. “It is noteworthy that 55 percent of this year’s graduates chose primary care, and 65 percent are staying in the New York metropolitan area, with a majority working in medically underserved communities.” Of the students in the graduating class, 25 percent were matched to residencies in general internal medicine, 14 percent in pediatrics, 12 percent in family medicine, 9 percent in emergency medicine, 7 percent in psychiatry and 4 percent in OB/ GYN. Included among the area’s hospitals receiving TouroCOM graduates are Maimonides Medical Center, St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital, Staten Island University Hospital, Palisades Medical Center, St. Barnabas Hospital, Westchester Medical Center and New York University Medical Center. In other parts of the country, the graduates will be residents at Georgetown University Hospital, Univer-

sity of Cincinnati Medical Center and Walter Reed Army Medical Center, among others. All of the TouroCOM students will become osteopathic physicians; however, they were eligible to apply for both allopathic (M.D.) and osteopathic (DO) residencies. The allopathic residency matches are made by the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) and the osteopathic matches by the National Matching Services (NMS). NRMP residencies are open to students at both allopathic and osteopathic medical schools. The NMS residencies are open only to DO students. Selections are based predominantly on student performance while on rotations at hospitals, as well as their national board scores.

As We Take Leave Of Pesach With Pesach in our rear-view mirror, and as we begin once again to eat pizza and pasta with gusto, we need to ask ourselves what spiritual lessons we are taking with us from the Yom Tov. Here are some ideas. When we left Egypt, the Midrash (Shemot Rabbah) tells us, the dogs did not bark. In reward for this, they were granted, for all time, first shot at treif meat, and with their excrement we treat the parchment of our sifrei Torah. On the other hand, during the plague of frogs, some of the frogs entered into the Egyptian ovens. Yet these brave frogs were never given a reward for their act of heroism. From this, Rav Yosef Chaim Sonnenfeld extrapolates the great lesson that it is a much greater feat to keep one’s mouth shut (like the dogs) than to leap into an oven (like the frogs). Thus, we need to realize what a

great accomplishment it is when we refrain from harmful gossip or speaking in shul during davening. Included in this opportunity of greatness is cultivating the talent to keep one’s mouth closed and not answer back, even when your spouse has a momentary lapse in judgment and says something tinged with sarcasm or talks to you mockingly or just plain nastily. The ability to let the moment pass instead of creating a louder conflagration promises great reward in this world and the next. Let’s remember the sage words of Rebbi Shimon in Pirkei Avos, “All my days I grew up among the Sages and yet I did not find anything greater than the ability to know when to keep quiet.” Here’s another thought. Recently, when the Daf Yomi focused on Sukkah, the Gemara related the curious ritual of the water-drawing ceremony. The Gemara informs us that such sages as Rav Yochanan and Abaya used to juggle – some juggled eight cups filled with wine yet they didn’t spill, they weren’t dropped, and they didn’t touch one another. Obviously, if these great Sages, whose every thought was invested with holiness and spirituality, did these rituals, the ceremony was not some simple circus act. I’ve always felt they were teaching us the fundamental lesson of the importance of properly juggling our priorities. A person must be able to hold many balls in the air without dropping any of them. One has to give the proper attention to one’s responsibility to Hashem, to one’s spouse, to one’s children, to one’s parents, to one’s friends, to one’s

employer or employees, to one’s shul and community and to oneself. The woman who is the chairperson of the tzedakah Chinese auction but is not home to cook for her family or to do homework with her children is dropping some very important balls. The man who is the hero in shul but is never there for his wife is not doing a good act of juggling the priorities of life. Let me share with you a Pesach example from Rav Chaim Kanievski, shlita. In his home bedikas chametz is a very serious business, taking about three hours, and he always enlisted the assistance of his grandchildren. When checking closets, he had them remove utensils, look behind, and then put them back in. But he would caution them to put back the utensils as they found them; otherwise the rebbetzin would be distressed and their effort would be counterproductive since bedikas chametz is only rabbinical while causing the rebbetzin aggravation would be a biblical infraction. This is a true example of getting our priorities straight. May it be the will of Hashem that we contemplate the many lessons we discussed over Pesach and try to put them to good use in our daily lives, and in that merit may we be blessed with long life, good health, and everything wonderful.

Leichman Continued from p.48 it in Israel in general,” Norton explained at a pre-conference press briefing in Jerusalem. “In Soroka in particular, the setup has what it takes to be a world center in this area.” Soroka, the teaching hospital for Ben-Gurion University Medical School, is the sole hospital serving the diverse population of the Negev Desert. It has launched a $40 million development project to construct a cancer research and treatment center to better serve the South’s resident Bedouin Arabs, Jews, Christians and military personnel stationed there. The diversity of the patient population is the main reason that Norton pinpointed Soroka for a long-term study of breast cancer and bones with his colleague Dr. Ethel Siris, director of the Toni Stabile Osteoporosis Center at Columbia University Medical Center. The study began in 2010 with funding from the New Jersey-based Cure Breast Cancer Foundation. “Soroka was carefully chosen for this research,” Norton says. “It is one hospital serving many people in one geographic area; it keeps immaculate records; it has superb clinicians and great science; and it has a university right there. I’ve been setting up cancer programs for decades, and this is literally made in heaven.” The study seeks to challenge the assumption that women who have breast cancer don’t get osteoporosis, and vice-versa. Siris and Norton suspect that medications to manage breast cancer over many years might harm bones. “The relationship with bone health has intrigued me for decades because most of the long-term patients I treat also have abnormalities in bone – sometimes too strong and sometimes too weak,” says Norton. “Understanding bone metabolism, how bone cells communicate, the role of the white blood cells in the bone marrow and how that relates to cancer growth, is an exciting and emerging area. We’re making some collaborative discoveries with the help of the extraordinary talent of individuals at Soroka, and we will be pursuing this aggressively.” At the conference, Soroka endocrinologist Dr. Merav Fraenkel updated participants on this study, which is the first-ever attempt to evaluate the relationship between bone health and breast cancer progression. Dr. David Geffen, Soroka’s chief of breast oncology services and co-chair of the conference, says 15,000 patients have already been evaluated retrospectively, and the prospective part of the study is about halfway done. He expects it to result in a definitive guide for physicians to advise breast cancer patients on how to keep their bones healthy. Geffen tells Israel21c that several Israelis are contributing significantly to cutting-edge cancer research. Dr. Eitan Friedman, director of oncogenetics at

Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer, is one of those leading lights. At the conference, he discussed the genetics of breast cancer in Jewish women. “Prof. Friedman has done a lot of important investigations as to which mutations of the BRCA-1 and BRCA-2, and other genes, are present in which subpopulations,” says Geffen. “In Israel, we have a unique combination of people from different ethnic groups that make this kind of study possible. The research done by Prof. Friedman and colleagues at other institutions in Israel has significantly advanced the ability to do genetic testing and prevention.” Personalized decision-making in chemotherapy for breast cancer is another area where Israeli scientists are making strides, says Geffen. “For many years, we had rough guidelines of who to give chemotherapy to, but we gave it to a lot of people who probably didn’t need it and suffered side effects. Now there are some molecular genetic tests that enable us to characterize the individual’s tumor and probably characterize their risk.” Israeli researchers have also been demonstrating how the genetic test 21G (21-gene recurrence) can effectively predict which patients are most likely to be helped by chemotherapy. “We have made unique contributions to the medical literature about the usefulness of this test and have shown that molecular analysis gives a more accurate picture than the traditional pathologic approach,” Geffen says. Cure Breast Cancer Foundation founder Andrew Abramson, whose wife has suffered three bouts of breast cancer, came in for the conference with his family. He tells Israel21c that the breast cancer-osteoporosis study is the first one his foundation is supporting in Israel. “It was a byproduct of the research we’ve done in New York with Dr. Siris, a bone specialist,” he says. “My wife is on the verge of osteoporosis, so she could very well be helped by the results of these studies.” Norton, considered one of the foremost breast cancer researchers in the United States, emphasized that the general theme of the conference was how the “microenvironment” of the body – genetic factors and obesity, for example – affects the growth of cancer. “Most early cancer research focused on the cancer cell, while in the last 15 years we’ve been paying more attention to how they relate to the cells in their environment, such as blood cells. We’ve realized the entire human body is involved, because of the extraordinary communication between cells and the chemical receptors that make this possible,” says Norton. Soroka Medical Center Director-General Dr. Ehud Davidson noted that with the growth of the Negev, Soroka is positioned “to become a larger player in groundbreaking research and advanced healthcare. This conference helps us realize this dream.” (Israel21c)

Letters To The Editor

Spielberg And Obama

I recently read that “Schindler’s List” director Steven Spielberg plans to honor President Obama for the president’s work in human rights. This will take place at a planned May 7 event to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Mr. Spielberg’s Shoah Foundation, an organization Mr. Spielberg founded to chronicle video and audiotapes of survivors of the Holocaust and other genocidal events of the 20th century. “President Obama’s commitment to democracy and human rights has long been felt,” Mr. Spielberg said recently. Are we talking about the same Barack Obama who fiercely campaigned in 2008 that if he were calling the shots, the United States “wouldn’t have gone into Iraq in the first place”? How can these liberals honor Mr. Obama for championing human rights when he openly states that even in the post-Sept. 11, 2001, world, he would have allowed a mass-murdering, torture-chamber-operating tyrant to continue with business as usual? Moreover, in the spring of 2009, even when he was already president and could have made an impact, Mr. Obama did nothing to support the Iranian people who were protesting against their oppressive government. The protesters were ultimately violently dispersed. I have a suggestion for Mr. Spielberg. Instead of honoring a “leader” who is a complete fraud on the issue for which he is being honored, bestow the honor in memoriam on a real president who did make a global difference in human

Continued from p.7 land it seized in the Six-Day War. Unfortunately, with the passage of time that understanding has faded, helped along by the growth of anti-Israel sentiment around the world and certainly in the UN. That careful distinction in language has become the victim of historical revisionism to the point where even presidents ranging from Ronald Reagan to George W. Bush to Barack Obama have come to view the resolution as somehow granting equal status to Israeli and Palestinian concerns, when in fact the Palestinians weren’t a factor at all in the UN talks following the Six-Day War. The only question was how much territory Israel would eventually relinquish to Egypt, Jordan and Syria in the event of a peace agreement. Richard Stein (Via E-Mail)

rights: Ronald Reagan. In the 1980s, when most of Hollywood had joined the “nuclear freeze” chorus, the Reagan administration accomplished the unthinkable in less than a decade. It facilitated the tearing down of the Iron Curtain and rang the chimes of freedom in formerly oppressed Eastern Europe and Asia. As I see it, if Mr. Spielberg’s Shoah Foundation wants to be intellectually honest on the issue of human rights, it should do a video tribute of Reagan’s finest hour. This came when, in the late spring of 1988, Reagan and wife Nancy triumphantly walked hand-in-hand through the Kremlin courtyard amid the adulation of the Russian people. This was truly a moment in history that just a few years earlier no one could have foreseen. It’s about time Reagan got his just accolades from the Hollywood community. Brian J.

Good And Evil

Re Steven Cymbrowitz’s “My Visit to Munich – Pain and Lessons Learned” (op-ed, March 28): Evil and unwarranted hatred are realities that exist in our world. The human being has an infinite capacity for evil that, left unchecked, can destroy the world. The Torah tells us that the “impulse of man’s heart is evil from his youth” (Gen. 8:21). Man is not born good. He has to become good by forging his character, bending his baser instincts, and learning that there is another beside him and an Other above him. The Holocaust shows what can become of human beings when they permit the beast within them to control them. It teaches us that we must be alert to the existence of evil, both in others and in ourselves. Once we are aware of its reality, we can work to uproot it. The mitzvot of the Torah are designed to help the spiritual qualities within us dominate the beast within. Further, we learn from the tragedy of the Holocaust that to be silent in the face of evil is to acquiesce in it, encourage it, and help it grow. History teaches us that evil triumphs when good people remain silent. But when good people rise up against evil, evil will perish, and good will prevail. Rabbi Dr. Bernhard Rosenberg (Via E-Mail)

raeli policy in light of security needs and applicable legal standards. B’Tselem has established a presence in the United States to enable Americans to support a human rights agenda that will protect the rights of Israelis and Palestinians alike, while also strengthening Israel’s civil society and its democracy. As for the New Israel Fund, despite its fervent denials it seems to have even closer ties to the BDS movement; as investigative journalist Edwin Black noted in the Huffington Post, “until 2011, generous NIF grants to the boycott van-

guard were indispensable to establishing and fortifying the budding international boycott movement.” NIF support for BDS groups, writes Black, also included acting as a “go between for other donors…. Go-between financing to create a tax-deductible transaction is a key feature of the global boycott movement.” Despite our confidence in the pro-Israel bona fides of parade organizers, we wish they’d have chosen not to welcome those whose views and actions are clearly inimical to Israel’s best interests on a variety of counts. Indeed, parade organizers should never have wanted anything to do with them.

Brandeis’s Two-Faced Policy Several years ago, when Brandeis University announced it would grant an honorary degree to playwright Tony Kushner, there was a hue and cry due to his notorious statements questioning the legitimacy of the Jewish state and claiming Israel was built on theft of Palestinian land and Palestinian suffering. He also stated that “The biggest supporters of Israel are the most repulsive members of the Jewish community.” Brandeis went ahead with the Kushner award (the school has also bestowed an honorary degree on longtime Israel-basher Bishop Desmond Tutu) and issued the following explanation: Brandeis bestows honorary degrees as a means of acknowledging the outstanding accomplishments or contributions of individual men and women in any of a number of fields of human endeavor. Just as Brandeis does not inquire into the political opinions and beliefs of faculty or staff before appointing them, or students before offering admission, so too the University does not select honorary degree recipients on the basis of their political beliefs or opinions. However, two weeks ago Brandeis withdrew an honorary award slated to be given to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, an interna-

tionally recognized defender of women’s rights with a particular focus on the Muslim world’s practices of female genital mutilation and forced marriages. Brandeis, which had to have known about her record of criticism of Islam, pulled the honor after pressure from a Muslim advocacy group and a number of faculty members and students. A university statement explained the withdrawal this way: She is a compelling public figure and advocate for human rights and we respect and respect her work to protect and defend the rights of women and girls throughout the world. That said, we cannot overlook certain of her past statements that are inconsistent with Brandeis University core values.” An obvious double standard is being employed, doubtless because Brandeis is not prepared to risk Muslim ire even as it had no problem disregarding Jewish objections to honoring Mr. Kushner and Bishop Tutu. But where is the outrage from the black community over this insult to an individual of unusual accomplishment and commitment who happens to be a woman of color? And why the silence of feminists in the face of such a slight to a vocal opponent of female oppression?

Observance Of Yom Ha’Atzmaut And Yom Yerushalayim (Continued from Front Page)

Ramban alludes to the conclusion of the Gemara, which describes how the sages found a biblical precedent for the establishment of the reading of the megillah. Others argued that this view is not cited by other Rishonim. Indeed, we often see that the rabbis instituted mitzvot. Rather, the distinction lies in whether these mitzvot are perceived as biblically obligatory, as Ramban himself mentions. Furthermore, Ramban may have only questioned the institution of the mitzvah of mikra megillah, and not the establishment of a festive day. Finally, commemorating Yom Ha’Atzmaut was not intended as an addition to the Torah but rather an application of the well-established principles of hakarat hatov and giving hoda’ah to HaKadosh Baruch Hu for saving the Jewish people and giving them a country in Eretz Yisrael.

I

n grappling with this issue, numerous poskim looked for prior historical/halachic precedents. Centuries earlier, the Acharonim debated whether a community may establish a personal “Purim,” a day of thanksgiving commemorating a miraculous event that occurred. R. Moshe Alashkar (1466-1542) rules that a community certainly has this authority to establish a “Purim in order to publicize a miracle that happened on a specific day,” and it is binding upon generations to come. R. Chezekiah da Silva, in his commentary to the Shulchan Aruch, the Peri Chadash, confirms that numerous communities have instituted festive days in order to commemorate miraculous events. He cites R. Alashkar but disagrees. He contends that nowadays we rule that “batla megillat ta’anit” – the days enumerated by the chronicle Megillat Ta’anit, which commemorates joyful events that occurred to the Jewish people during the time of the Second Temple and were celebrated as festive days, are no longer in practice. Therefore, not only are these days not observed but one may no longer institute holidays that commemorate festive events. R. Moshe Sofer, known as Chatam Sofer, rejects Peri Chadash’s argument. In a responsum written in 1805, he argues that although one may not establish a day that commemorates an event related to the Beit HaMikdash, one may certainly establish days that commemorate other miracles. Furthermore, the Talmud never meant to discourage or prohibit establishing festive days for cities or countries but rather only a festival meant to be observed by the entire Jewish people. In fact, Chatam Sofer relates that the Sefer Yosef Ometz records a miracle that occurred in Frankfurt am Main on the 20th day of Adar, and they established it as a festive day for generations to come. He relates that his teacher, R. Natan Adler, as well as his community, which was located far away from the city, also observed this festive day. Interestingly, in a different responsum, Chatam Sofer criticizes the celebration of the hilulla (yahrzeit) of R. Shimon b. Yochai on Lag B’Omer in Tzefat. He claims this celebration may constitute the establishment of a holiday that is not in commemoration of a miraculous event, which even he maintains would be prohibited. Indeed, throughout the Middle Ages and until modern times, communities have instituted their own festive days, often known as Purim Sheini or Purim Katan. R. Ovadia Hadaya (Jerusalem, 1890-1969) cites examples of numerous communities that observed their own local “Purims.” R. Hadaya strongly argues in favor of establishing a festive day in commemoration of the establishment of the state of Israel. Similarly, R. Meshulem Roth (18751963), a member of the Israeli Chief Rabbinic Council, authored a responsum on this subject. He argues that it is certainly permitted to establish a festive day that commemorates the salvation of the Jewish people, and that the quote from Ramban cited above referred to the establishment of a holiday without any purpose. He writes: Indeed, there is no doubt that that day [the fifth of Iyar] – which was established by the government and the members of the Parliament, the elected representatives of the people, as well as the majority of the great Rabbis to celebrate through the land, to commemorate our salvation and our freedom – it is a mitzvah to make it [a day of] happiness and Yom Tov and to recite Hallel.

Friday, April 25, 2014

The Talmud records the eighteen days on which one recites the full Hallel (Arachin 10a). Elsewhere, the Talmud seems to present contradictory evidence regarding the origins of Hallel (Berachot 14a; Ta’anit 28b). The Rishonim therefore debate whether the recitation of this Hallel constitutes a biblical mitzvah or a rabbinic one. In addition to these eighteen days upon which the entire Hallel is recited, the Talmud mentions the custom of reciting Hallel on Rosh Chodesh and omitting two of its psalms (Ta’anit 29a). This “half-Hallel” is recited on Chol HaMoed Pesach as well. The Rishonim debate whether one should recite a berachah upon reciting this Hallel or not, or whether to do so only when it is recited publicly. The custom of Ashkenazim is to say the blessing, while Sephardim omit the blessing. While it seems intuitive that the Hallel recited on Chanukah is mi’de’rabbanan, Chatam Sofer maintains that through reciting Hallel on Chanukah or fulfilling the mitzvot on Purim, one fulfills a biblical commandment of commemorating deliverance from near death. While the Hallel recited on the festivals expresses one’s simchat Yom Tov, the Hallel of Chanukah relates directly to the miracle of Chanukah. What is the source for this type of Hallel, and may it be recited on other occasions? According to the passage in Pesachim (117a), the prophets instituted that Hallel should be recited on every holiday and upon the redemption of the Jewish people from misfortune. Rashi explains that an example of such redemption from misfortune is Chanukah. To what extent does this source serve as a precedent for reciting Hallel upon being saved from danger? The poskim raise a number of issues. First, what kind of “redemption” obligates one to recite Hallel? R. Zvi Hirsch Chajes (1805-1855), known as Maharatz Chajes, suggests that the Talmud refers only to the miracle of the flask of oil, not to the military victory, because Hallel was only instituted as a result of the miracle of the oil, which was a “nes nigleh,” blatant and apparent to all. Some argue that the pronouncement of Israel’s independence and the ensuing military victory do not constitute a “nes nigleh,” and therefore do not qualify as deserving of Hallel according to this theory. Others maintain that the victory of the small Jewish army against the surrounding Arab states does constitute a “nes nigleh.” Second, when the Gemara states that upon being redeemed, “they” should say Hallel, of whom is it speaking? Behag writes: When our Rabbis remarked that there are eighteen occasions during the year on which the individual Jew recites Hallel, they did not mean to imply that it must be recited in private; rather, whenever we speak of the entire house of Israel as opposed to the individual Jew, they are not restricted to the eighteen occasions in the year, and they may recite Hallel whenever they are delivered from trouble. These Rishonim clearly limit the application of this Gemara to cases in which all of Israel was saved, such as during the Chanukah miracle. This gives rise to the question of how we view the miraculous events of 1948 (or even 1967), and whether they can be said to have affected “all of Israel” in the same manner as the Chanukah miracle. In summary, we see that a number of Rishonim derive from the Talmud that if the entire nation is saved from danger, they may recite Hallel. They disagree as to whether this applies to individuals as well and whether this Hallel should be recited with a blessing. May one invoke these sources in order to justify or mandate reciting Hallel on Yom Ha’Atzmaut? Numerous Rishonim rule that a miracle that does not occur to an entire nation does not warrant Hallel, and even according to Me’iri, who would sanction it, this Hallel is recited without a blessing. Based upon the above reasoning, R. Hadaya rules that Hallel should be recited without a blessing on Yom Ha’Atzmaut due to the precarious security situation. R. Ovadia Yosef also rules that Hallel may be recited without a blessing, as did R. Yitzchak Herzog (cited by R. Yosef). R. Meshulem Roth, in the responsum cited above, argues that Yom Ha’Atzmaut should be observed as a festive day, and that naturally one should recite the full Hallel, with a blessing, as well. The non-Zionist religious community, which in large part opposes the recitation of Hallel on Yom

Ha’Atzmaut (and Yom Yerushalayim), has not, for the most part, formulated its halachic objections. R. Yitzchak Yaakov Weiss, former head of the Eida Hareidit, recorded his opposition to reciting Hallel on Yom Ha’Atzmaut and Yom Yerushalayim. In addition to his general belief that supporting the state of Israel constitutes heresy, R. Weiss also raises halachic objections. He, like R. Azulai, notes that the Shulchan Aruch does not codify the passage from Pesachim which teaches that the prophets established that one should recite Hallel when one is redeemed from danger. In addition, even according to that source, as we mentioned above, some limit it to a miracle experienced by the entire nation. Furthermore, he cites Peri Chadash, who opposed local annual festive commemorations. Interestingly, R. Yosef Dov Soloveitchik, whose recognition of the significance of the events of 1948 and 1967 is well documented, objected to reciting Hallel, as he objected to any changes in the liturgy. He sanctioned, however, reciting half-Hallel, without a blessing and at the end of Shacharit, as this does not constitute a major change in the liturgy.

A

lthough we have seen different motivations for reciting Hallel without a blessing on Yom Ha’Atzmaut, either due to doubt, or because the takana of the prophets never included reciting a blessing over Hallel, or in light of the undesirable security and spiritual situation of the state of Israel, we might suggest a different approach. In addition to the eighteen days on which one recites the full Hallel, one recites Hallel on the evening of Pesach during the Seder. This Hallel has puzzled the commentators for centuries, as it appears to violate numerous classic halachic norms: it is recited at night, it is interrupted by the meal, and it is not preceded by a berachah. The Rishonim question the nature of this Hallel and why it does not conform to the classic models of Hallel. R. Hai Gaon, as cited by the Rishonim, offers an intriguing explanation. He distinguishes between Hallel of the eighteen days on which one is obligated to read (korei) Hallel, and the Hallel of the Seder, which one is obligated to sing (shira) in response to the miraculous events of yetziat Mitzrayim. This Hallel of “shira” is meant to be a spontaneous outburst of song expressing praise and gratitude to the Almighty for the redemption from Egypt. A berachah before such a Hallel is not only unnecessary but also inappropriate, as it undermines and negates the very essence of this Hallel. One might suggest the Hallel described by the Gemara in Pesachim, which one recites in response to a miracle, should also be “spontaneous,” a “shira,” and not preceded by a blessing. The closer one is to an event, the less formal and more “natural” the Hallel is. If so, then this model of Hallel, without a blessing, may actually be the more appropriate Hallel for Yom Ha’Atzmaut. Those who pray in Religious Zionist communities in Israel on Yom Ha’Atzmaut can testify to the genuine feeling of fervor and relevance with which Hallel is recited on that day. While this discussion may be applied equally to Yom Yerushalayim, some believe that the victory of the Six-Day War more closely resembles the redemption described by the Talmud. Therefore, the Chief Rabbinate, in a ruling signed by R. Isser Yehuda Unterman, R. Yitzchak Nissim, R. Shlomo Yosef Zevin, and R. Shaul Yisraeli, ruled that Hallel should be recited with a blessing on Yom Yerushalayim.

O

ne can certainly build a strong case in favor of establishing a day dedicated to praising God for the creation of the state of Israel – as well as the victory of the Six-Day War. Over the past 66 years, rabbinic figures have grappled with the appropriate means of celebrating these days, including the recitation of the berachah of Shehecheyanu, reading a portion from the Prophets during the morning service, and reciting Hallel at night and/or during the day, and even at Minchah time. Ultimately, Klal Yisrael, guided by its leaders, will determine the most fitting means of celebrating these days, and one should view, in retrospect, these attempts in their proper context – finding the proper means to offer thanksgiving to HaKadosh Baruch Hu.

Torah & Psychological Insights Into Relationships

By Rabbi Simcha Feuerman, LCSW Chaya Feuerman, LCSW

Thirteen Distorted Beliefs That Sabotage Marital Harmony (Part III) One of Cognitive Behavior Therapy’s great contributions to the emotional health of mankind is its ability to identify the power of incorrect or maladaptive beliefs and how they shape our feelings. If a person can allow himself to question his thoughts and beliefs, and become less defensive, he can change the way he is affected by what happens to him. Last week we examined treating others with respect and enjoying our time even when we are angry or hurt. Distorted Belief #5: Romance and love come automatically and should not require any effort. If we have to work at it, it must be less genuine. What is maladaptive about this belief: In point of fact, the greatest artists, athletes, talmidei chachamim and tzaddikim work hours a day at developing their “natural talent.” Almost anything worth attaining requires consistent and sustained effort – and romance and love are no different. Love, like the conception of a baby or the emergence of a towering tree from a minute seed, requires mundane and simple caretaking efforts to bring it into existence. We must prepare fertile territory, put in plenty of effort, and then pray for G-d’s blessing. A healthy marriage takes constant effort on the part of both spouses – communicating needs, sharing disappointments, complementing and accepting good faith efforts. Couples who are “koveyya ittim” to spend together going out on dates once a week are rewarded with feelings of connection, reduced stress and more romance. There is always something that seems to be a bigger priority. Don’t be lazy and don’t expect ro-

mance and passion to happen by magic. Plan surprises, take care of your looks (men too!), and treat your spouse well so you don’t have to fight an uphill battle of resentment when you do finally have time together. Correct Belief: I will learn the ways to please my spouse and work at it as much as realistically possible. I must inform my spouse what my needs are without drama, accusations or embarrassment. I will look for and choose opportunities to enjoy life with my spouse so that when I think about my spouse, I will have positive associations in my mind and heart. Distorted Belief #6: If my spouse doesn’t listen to me, care about what I want or respect my wishes, becoming verbally abusive, sarcastic, and vindictive will “teach him a lesson.” It will also make him take me seriously and get him to change. What is maladaptive about this belief: Most people become oppositional, sullen and/or passive aggressive when they feel attacked, blamed, forced or coerced. It is a rare tzaddik who, in the face of a barrage of hostility and negativity, says something like “Oh, my bad, you are right, I’m sorry.” (If you are married to such a tzaddik or tzaddekes, then you probably don’t need to be reading any of this. But for the rest of us, it pays to read on.) Correct Belief: Though I can feel frustrated and angry, and at times be totally justified, I must choose to speak in a manner that is collaborative and strategic instead of losing my cool. It won’t help me improve my marriage if I use my spouse as a punching

bag (figuratively!) to vent my anger. If I am calm and mindful of the goals, while it will feel like it is going to take even longer to get what I want, the chances for a solution are actually far greater.

Do You Think Like A Criminal? Dr. Miriam Adahan I once heard a lecture by a rabbi who visits prisoners as part of his work. “It’s fascinating,” he observed, “that there are no guilty people in jail. Every violent prisoner I ever met claims that he is innocent. He blames his actions on his mother, his bad friends, his environment, his lack of a valued father figure, unsupportive teachers, bad luck or the bad character traits he was given, etc.” He is never responsible! When a person sees himself as a victim of forces beyond his control, he will easily justify his bad behavior as inescapable (“He made me do it! I couldn’t control myself”) and excusable (“They deserved it”). While no parent thinks he has a criminal mentality, without realizing it, this is how many think. When we hear about the arrest of a parent or teacher who has abused children, the story often includes the person’s excuses, such as, “Her whining drove me crazy,” “He never listens to me,” “I told him a million times to stop and he wouldn’t,” “She woke me up!” “He’s so chutzpadik,” “He made a huge mess,” “She lied,” “All she wants is candy,” “He spilled the juice,” “He can’t sit still,” “He got bad grades,” “They won’t go to sleep unless I hit them,” “They won’t clean up unless I scream.” Parents are sure, “Anger educates! What’s wrong with hitting? It gets them to behave! It’s the

most natural thing in the world!” These parents don’t realize that they are thinking like criminals. For example, 1. Urgency: I must have what I want! I must have it right now! I cannot bear to feel deprived. Wanting something means I must have it! 2. Entitlement: People exist to serve me! They must make me feel happy, satisfied and important. My life should be free of discomfort, deprivation or distress. If anyone disturbs me, he or she deserves to be hurt back. 3. Intention: People should be obedient, respectful and cooperative. If not, it’s because they have a deliberate intention to hurt me. 4. Blame: I’m not responsible for my behavior. They made me do it. Their bad behavior made me act bad. Bad events make me act bad. 5. Vengeance: If I don’t get what I want, I feel hurt. That gives me the right to hurt back. I can punish, hit, slap, kick, scold, scream, pinch, nag, etc. That’ll teach them not to do it again! Anger educates. With anger, I get a sense of self-respect and control. It is normal for a child to think this way. Because his prefrontal cortex (PFC), located in the forehead, is undeveloped, he cannot contemplate future consequences, delay gratification or engage in complex

problem solving. Instead, his animal brain, located at the nape of the neck, is in control. When a dog is annoyed, he barks. When a snake is disturbed, he bites. When a child is annoyed, his initial response is to strike out at whoever upset his equilibrium. However, by bar/bat mitzvah, he must have developed the skills necessary to overcome this initial response. We teach children impulse control by example. They can only learn by watching us overcome our initial response! So, first validate that a child’s whining, arguments, demands and messes definitely disturb us. But a disturbance does not compel us to lose control. Test this by imagining that a child was in a coma for weeks and then came home and jumped around or made a mess. Instead of thinking, “This annoying brat is driving me crazy,” you’d think, “Thank G-d he’s acting like a normal child!” It’s all about mindset. Beliefs, not external events, create behavior. Another proof is to imagine the next time you get angry that someone is walking up to you and saying, “I’ll give you $10,000 tax free if you respond with patience and compassion each time your child misbehaves.” Guess what? You’d beg your child to misbehave! What changed? Your thinking! Instead of screaming at him for disturbing you, you’d be thinking, “I’ll be rewarded for displaying patience and com-

Will I Live Or Die? By Rabbi Gideon Weitzman Director, Puah Institute As we discussed last week, The Mishnah (Avot 1:18) states that the world stands on three things: on judgment, on truth and on peace. The Torah goes even further, stating “Distance yourself from a lie” (Shemot 23:7). The Gemara explains that not only may one not lie, but one may not even give the impression of a lie. For example, a person cannot stand next to a witness in a court of law, even if he does not say anything, as this gives a false impression that he is also a witness. Therefore, we reason that a doctor who performs genetic testing and uncovers previously unknown information about a familial genetic disorder is obliged to reveal all the facts to the patient, regardless of possible negative consequences. The Tanach, however, relates an interesting episode which would seem to suggest a different approach. Elisha was Eliyahu HaNavi’s main disciple. In Melachim (II, 8:7-14) we are told that Elisha went to Damascus, where the king of Aram, Ben Hadad, had become ill. When he heard that Elisha was in the neighborhood, the king thought it opportune to send his servant, Chazael, to ask the prophet whether he would live or die. Chazael brought gifts to Elisha, who had been told by Hashem that the king would die. He also realized that it would be dangerous to share this information with Chazael, who would then pass it on to Ben Hadad. Elisha answered in an ambiguous manner. “ ‘Go say to him, You shall definitely live,’ even though G-d has shown me that he will die.” The commentators point out that the words “say to him – emor lo” may be read in two ways: either “tell him he will live” or “say that he will not live” since the word “lo” may be read as either “to him” or “no.” Elisha deliberately left the answer vague, leaving Ben Hadad with the impression that he would live.

FAMILY ISSUES The lesson to be learned from this story is that while we are not permitted to tell an outright lie, there are times when we may be evasive, leaving things purposely unclear. Why did Elisha feel the need to be ambiguous? Why did he choose not to tell the whole truth? Some explain that since Ben Hadad was already ill, receiving the Divine prophecy of imminent death would have only made his condition worse. And since Elisha could not save him, what would be gained by telling him the truth? He therefore allowed Ben Hadad to cling to hope even though he knew what was actually going to happen. This would seem to indicate that doctors do not always have to share all information with patients, especially when nothing can be done to heal the illness – as in the case of genetic abnormalities. But there is another story of an interaction between a different prophet and king that conveys an alternate message. When Chizkiyahu, the King of Israel, was critically ill, the prophet Yeshayahu came to visit and relayed a Divine message: “Set your house in order, for you will die and not live” (Melachim II, 20:1). Chizkiyahu became overcome with grief and offered a heartfelt prayer to G-d to heal him. Yeshayahu was sent back to the king with a new message: “G-d has heard your prayer and will give you another 15 years of life; and you will overcome your enemies.” In this second story the prophet gives a precise, if gloomy, directive; he does not couch his message in unclear terms. He tells Chizkiyahu that he is destined to die, and no one can prevent it. Of course he could not know that the king himself would pray so hard that G-d would decide to change his fate. The Midrash in Kohelet Rabba states that when one goes to visit the sick, one usually tries to offer the patient hope and pray that G-d have mercy on him. A doctor, too, gives medicine to his patient and instructs him what, and what not to, eat in order for him to get better. No one tells a critically ill person that he is going to die, so as not to frighten him. Yet, the prophet came and told Chizkiyahu the brutal truth, point blank. It is possible that Yeshayahu knew that his frightening message would motivate the king to pray from the depths of his heart. So, while physicians generally try to give their patients hope, they must also give them all the information relevant to their case – especially when a person may be able to change his condition, or just set his affairs in order. This is also a halachic requirement. “If someone is

Mind Over Manners By Mrs. Rifka Schonfeld

The Problem With Bullies With all the recent attention that bullying has gotten in the media, it is not surprising that the subject is highly researched. This month in Pediatrics, the official journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics, a new study was published about the longterm effects of bullying. The psychologists studied more than four thousand children over the span of six years in three cities. The study dealt with children who never experienced bullying, children who experienced bullying in the past and present, children who experienced bullying in the past only, and children who experienced bullying in the present only. The researchers checked on the children’s mental and physical health in fifth, seventh, and tenth grade. What the researchers found is not groundbreaking, but confirms what many of us in education have been noticing for years. Children who have been bul-

lied in the past, and do not work through the negative feelings of self-depreciation and depression at the time of the bullying, are more likely to be depressed and have low self-esteem as they grow older. Children who were bullied in the past also tend to be heavier than their peers if their feelings of decreased selfworth are not addressed at the time of the bullying. The study clearly indicates that even if the bullying is stopped, without remediation, it carries long-term mental and physical effects. So, what can be done to fight the long-term effects? First, we need to create a zero-tolerance plan for bullying in our schools. Who is a Bully? Contrary to popular belief, bullies need not be boys and they need not be big and strong. Many bullies are girls or boys who are smaller than many of

about to die we say to him, ‘Confess – many confessed and did not die and many who did not confess died. In the merit of your confession you will live and whoever confesses has a portion in the next world’” (Shulchan Aruch, Yoreh Deah 338:1). In cases where there is no hope, and the patient must prepare for the worst, he needs to be made aware of the gravity of his situation. This needs to be done in a clear and practical manner, in a way which will not cause unnecessary fear and anguish and will afford the patient dignity and peace. Another way of explaining the difference between these two episodes is to say that it depends on who is receiving the information. In the first case Yeshayahu knew Chizkiyahu and was fairly confident that the bad news would not break him; on the contrary, it would encourage him to mend his ways and pray to God for a better outcome – which is what subsequently happened. But in the second case Elisha suspected that Ben Hadad would not react well, that he would give up hope and become despondent. He therefore provided an ambiguous answer that actually allowed Ben Hadad renewed optimism. We have to consider the consequences of relaying information, and we need to understand that different people will react differently to the same knowledge. Even if someone claims he wants to know everything, and will be able to live with all the ramifications, this is not always the case. If the medical professionals involved are convinced that the knowledge will be detrimental to a person’s life and health, and there is nothing practical that can be gained from knowing, they need to carefully consider what they share and how they phrase it. One may not lie, but one also does not always have to tell the whole truth. Modern-day poskim have discussed at length whether or not to tell a critically ill patient the details of his prognosis and the severity of his situation. The son of a man critically ill with cancer once asked Rav Betzalel Stern, who had been rav in Melbourne after the war, if he should tell his father the extent of his illness, since the doctors had not – possibly for fear of making his condition worse. The father had now lost patience and insisted on knowing all the details; he asked his son to be honest with him. Rav Stern replied that if the father were to know everything about his situation he would lose heart since there was no treatment for the cancer. As such the father was not obliged to tell him. In our next column we will see an interesting source for this halachic decision. their peers. Rather than physical attributes, bullies share many emotional aspects: • Abuse of power: Children who are bullies thrive on abusing the social power in their hands. They want to make other people feel bad because this way they maintain their control over the people around them. • Self esteem. Many bullies will put other people down to feel better about themselves. On the other hand, there are bullies who are very self-confident and simply bully because they believe everyone should behave according to their wishes. • Lack of empathy: Children who put other people down or attack them physically lack empathy, the ability to understand what other people are feeling. They do not care how their actions negatively affect others. • Role models: Often, children who are bullies have role models in their home (perhaps an older sibling) who exhibits bullying behavior. Children who bully are not often brought in for social skills training or counseling. Rather, it is the victim who gets help. If schools implement social skills training in order to build healthy self-esteem, instill empathy, and create positive role models, both the bully and the victim will be benefit. In effect, a school-wide effort to teach essential social skills could change the school’s whole culture. Who is a Victim? While children who are the victims of bullying of-

Parenting Simply By Adina Soclof, MS. CCC-SLP Dear Adina, My son is struggling in school. He doesn’t seem to try at all and he is getting more and more belligerent. The teachers suspect a learning disability. My husband and I are totally at a loss. We don’t know what to do. Any suggestions? Mom At A Loss Dear Mom, It can be difficult for parents when they are told that their child is falling behind in school. Getting reports of a child’s lack of motivation, interest or even defiance in the classroom can be frustrating. However, parents should not despair. There could be perfectly good reasons for a child’s behavior and there is help available. Many times children struggle in school because they have some learning issue. A savvy teacher easily spots some learning issues, but sometimes learning disabilities are subtler and go undetected. Learning disabilities usually fall under these 3 categories: 1. Dyslexia: difficulties with reading. 2. Dysgraphia: difficulties with writing 3. Dyscalculia: difficulties with math. All three are a result of visual-spatial difficulties, which means trouble processing what the eye sees, and language processing difficulty, which is trouble processing and making sense of what the ear hears. Dyslexia is the most well known LD category. It is the name for specific learning disabilities in reading.

Dyslexia is a neurological disorder that causes the brain to process and interpret information differently. Some early signs of dyslexia in young children include having trouble with letter recognition, matching letters to sound, pronouncing words, learning new vocabulary and using new words properly and learning the proper sequence of the alphabet, numbers and days of the week. School-age children might have difficulty with, reading, spelling, memorizing facts and numbers, following multi-step directions, and difficulty comprehending math word problems. Teenagers and adults with dyslexia will have difficulty with reading, understanding non-literal language, jokes, puns and idioms. That is in addition to trouble managing time and organization skills, memorization, and trouble summarizing a story. Dysgraphia is a learning disability that makes the act of writing difficult. A child’s brain needs to complete a complex set of motor and information processing skills when writing. Children need to locate each stroke of their hand relative to other strokes and learn and remember the size, form, and feature detail characteristic of each letter. Young children who present with dysgraphia have tight awkward pencil grips and body position. They have trouble spelling, and messy handwriting. They find forming letters challenging, will say words out loud and tire quickly when writing. Older children will have trouble with grammar and syntax. They may concentrate so hard on their

From The Desk Of Devorah Adler Dear Devorah, My daughter gets upset when we go out and have to wait on line in stores. She gets angry and cries and wants to leave. She is three years old and I cannot seem to reason with her. Can you give me some ideas on how to handle things? A Distressed Mom Dear Distressed Mom, When small children have little or no control over their environment, they may express their frustration by acting out or crying. Feeling unable to express their frustration in a productive way, they tend to focus on the tedious waiting, so they make a big fuss in order to draw our attention to their discomfort, hoping we will respond accordingly. To a child, waiting 20 minutes may feel like a long time, while we take it in stride. We know from experience that a crowded store results in a waiting line; that is when we whip out our favorite book or magazine and skim a few pages. But toddlers who have to wait on line tend to become impatient and let us know it so that we can address it and change the situation for them. Their time zone connection from desire to fulfillment is different than ours. When you know you will visit various businesses which may entail waiting lines, pack a tote bag with your daughter’s toys and a small old blanket so she can play on the floor by your feet. Then you can break

up a waiting period of 20 minutes into small increments of five minutes allotted to various distracting and playful activities such as grooming her doll, coloring a few pages, playing with her toy telephone, working on a small puzzle and so on. As she plays, tell her she has five minutes for that particular toy. This shifts her focus from complaining about the long waiting line to finishing her playtime with her doll and moving on to her puzzle. As she entertains herself, interact with her every now and then and praise her for her self-control and her sweet demeanor. You can keep a “waiting toy-tote-bag” prepared in your front coat closet ready for these occasions and simply change the toys inside for variety. Include snacks and boxed juices. The day before you go out for a shopping excursion involving waiting on line, tell your daughter about it, and indicate you expect her to play nicely while waiting. An hour before you leave remind her again and ask her what she would like to wear so she can look pretty. When we prepare our toddlers for annoying or uncomfortable experiences, it gives them the knowledge of what is about to happen so they are not caught off guard. She will know that there will be a line in the bank or the store and she will look forward to the games or toys you packed for her to play with. Instead of it being a negative stressful situation, you have transformed it into a positive one. You can do a little of your own complaining by

writing they might not comprehend what they have written. They have trouble coming up with ideas and organizing their ideas on paper. They will try to find creative ways to avoid writing assignments. Children with dyscalculia may have difficulties recognizing numbers and understanding the relationship between the idea of the number (3) and how it exists in the world (3 pancakes, 3 chairs). They might have poor memory for numbers and an inability to organize objects in a logical way. As they get older they may have trouble with memorizing their multiplication tables, problem-solving skills or difficulties understanding math vocabulary. They may also avoid games that require strategy to play. Adults who have dyscalculia may have trouble estimating the cost of bills and budgeting their checkbooks. They might also have poor organizational skills and difficulty with managing their time, like sticking to a schedule or approximating time. Children who exhibit any of the above LD’s will obviously experience more stress when trying to learn. This will cause them to lag behind their peers academically, and accounts for their behavior at school, the shutting down, lack of motivation and defiance. Parents should recognize that although reading, writing and math are important skills, difficulty in these areas do not preclude children from living a meaningful fulfilling life. Children with learning disabilities are usually attracted to hobbies where they do not have to rely on the area of learning that is a challenge for them. Care should be taken to find children’s strengths, the activities that they enjoy and cultivate interests in those areas: dance, drama, karate, chess, or art. It does help to identify learning disabilities as soon as possible. If a child gains the proper support from parents, teachers, tutors and other trained professionals, he can overcome his disabilities and become successful in life.

saying, “Oh, I do wish this line would move along, I have so much baking to do.” Your daughter can view your displeasure and see how mildly you reacted and she will understand that we can dislike certain situations in public arenas, yet still voice our complaint in a quiet tone. You need to role model for her how to complain or react in a way that does not upset her or those around her. And since little girls like to imitate their mothers, she will hopefully learn for the future that she can dislike an experience or situation and react to it without getting emotionally upset and having a noisy temper tantrum. When she resists having a tantrum, praise her lavishly and give her big hugs and kisses. Tell her, “What a big girl you were today to act so grown up in the bank and you did not even complain. Mommy is so proud of you.” If the waiting exceeds your limit, simply leave the store and return another day. Try not to stress your daughter too often with shopping outings that entail long waiting lines. Remember this is only temporary. As your daughter gets older, long waiting lines won’t bother her so much, if at all. By then she might find something else to complain about. Each experience which we face with our children and overcome the inherent obstacle teaches them there is more than one way to solve a problem. We cannot always avoid an annoying situation, but we can modify our exposure to its effect on us by taking our attention off of it and onto something enjoyable and pleasurable. Consider inviting another mother to go shopping with you and your daughter and she will then have instant playmates. You daughter might not be inclined to rush into a tantrum in front of her friends so this may act as a deterrent for her. While one of you attends to business, the other mother watches the children in a seating area and vice versa. May Hashem bless you with much happiness and nachas.

Adahan Continued from p.F1 passion.” Notice, as upsetting as a person’s behavior might be, it does not compel you to respond with anger, just as it does not compel you to get drunk or eat a dozen cookies. Rage is often the drug of choice for frustrated parents. They don’t realize that they could think differently and respond more effectively. To overcome this mindset, think: No Urgency: Discomfort is part of life. As long as there is no danger involved, a mature person bears discomfort with patience and inner fortitude. No Entitlement: I am not entitled to have perfectly obedient, brilliant, orderly children who bring me nothing but praise, glory and nachas. Hashem is good. So, everything He does is good. He wants me to have a child who is self-centered, lazy, moody, ADD or violent, etc., because He wants to force me to work on my middos. No Intention: I give children the benefit of the doubt. I assume the child is always doing the best he can with his present level of consciousness and intelligence. If he could do better, he would! Yes, he disturbs me at times, but, according to Jewish law,

Schonfeld Continued from p.F2 ten have low self-esteem, it is unclear whether this low self-esteem is a result of or a cause of the bullying behavior. Below, I explain some common characteristics of children who are bullied: • Isolated: Victims of bullying are often loners. They spend a lot of time alone and therefore do not have a good support network. • Different: Children who are slightly different – either religiously or physically – will be targeted. These differences set them apart and make them an obvious target for bullies. • Strong Response to Bullying: Perhaps the most significant characteristic of children who are bullied is their response to the bully. Children who are bullied on a consistent basis show their hurt and anger to the bully, rather than ignoring him

FAMILY ISSUES he has no malicious, criminal intention to hurt because he is ruled by instinct and impulse. Children have no true freedom of choice until bar/bat mitzvah age and even then, are not obligated fully until age twenty. In contrast, adults can have an intention to hurt, which is why they can be imprisoned while children cannot! No Blame: Children are to blame for my jangled nerves, but they are not to blame for my behavior. The key to gaining control over the animal brain is to see their faults and misbehavior as an opportunity to demonstrate good middos. Just as no one develops strong muscles from sitting on the couch all day eating chips and drinking soda, I won’t develop strength of character from a life of ease and comfort. So, I’m grateful to You, Hashem, for causing my child to act like this so that I can have an opportunity to strengthen my middos. The child’s chutzpah or difficulties are not random events which have no meaning. This is G-d’s way of forcing me to fix an area of weakness in my character. The only way You could get my attention was to have the child spill the juice, fight with a sibling, wake me up or whine incessantly. So I’ll work on faith, forgiveness, non-punitive assertiveness, gratitude and self-control. Solutions, not Vengeance: I need to find creative or her. It’s important to note that I am not “blaming the victim” in anyway. No one should have to deal with bullying. Rather, again, I am explaining how we can change the school culture. If we embrace differences and explicitly teach children to ignore negative behavior (but approach an adult at a later time), we will take great strides towards eliminating bullying in our schools. Who is a Bystander? This is the hardest parts for schools and parents to grasp: We are all bystanders. If we see bullying and do nothing about it, we are complicit in it. In essence, we are saying to everyone – the bully, the victim, and the other children around – that bullying is acceptable. Experts identify four different types of bystanders: • Assistants – who actively join in the attack. • Reinforcers – who give positive feedback to the bully, perhaps by smiling or laughing. • Outsiders – who stay back, stay quiet and unwittingly condone the bullying behavior. • Defenders – who try to intervene to stop the

solutions. Perhaps he is feeling bored, neglected or sad. Maybe he has MTHFR* and is taking out his inner agitation and distress on his siblings or me. I will validate his pain and teach him how to calm down and focus on mature solutions. Our children must see us respond to the endless frustrations, disappointments and losses of life with patience, faith and compassion or they won’t know how. Focus on the spiritual benefit. It seems ridiculous, but do it anyway, because it works! Bring G-d into the picture. If you get enraged, punitive and vengeful, you teach your child that it is acceptable to act like a criminal and to justify lashing out and hurting you back. On the other hand, if you seek solutions, the child will learn that painful events are opportunities to strengthen middos. This is the most valuable gift you can give a child! *MTHFR is a genetic defect carried by almost half the population. It has a great number of manifestations, including anxiety, depression, agitation and physical ailments. Dr. Adahan is available for phone consultations.

Occasionally, teachers in the schoolyard will assume “boys will be boys” or “it will pass,” but in reality they are acting as “outsiders” – quietly condoning the bullying act. And, this can be the worst type of bystander for the victim. After all, if the victim knows that someone sees and is doing nothing about it, they feel completely abandoned. Again, I cannot emphasize enough how important changing the social environment is in order to eliminate bullying. We need to explicitly teach children the skills they need in order to be defenders. Through role-playing, classroom activities, and books tailored to intervention, we can teach every child to stand up for those around him. Bullying is a whole school approach: Use a staff meeting to raise awareness of bullying. • Gather information about: a) The problem b) Solutions that other schools have employed • Develop clear guidelines that every teacher can enforce at all times. • Set up parent conferences with parents of children who are victims or bullies. • Distribute pamphlets that lay out the guidelines in a clear and concise manner. In individual classrooms a good teacher will: • Notice when a student is isolated and sad •Address the bullying behavior immediately – and not say that it is just “normal kid stuff” •Create a zero tolerance policy for bullying •Place value on respect and teamwork – give points for this on group projects

Next, we need to deal with the bullying when it happens. What this article from Pediatrics has taught us is that even if we end the bullying, there is still a lot of work to be done to ensure that the victim does not suffer long-term damage. To that end, we need to enlist school guidance counselors, specialists, and parents to rebuild and restore children’s self-images. Otherwise, those individual bullying incidents could last a lifetime.
