Netanyahu Rips European Leaders As Violence Against Jews Rises

A Profile In Jewish Courage For D-Day’s 70th Anniversary By Ed Lion

By Steve K. Walz

Jewish Press Israel Correspondent

In childhood I often played soldier with my friend Gary, not realizing his Vienna-born father was a genuine D-Day hero, a Jewish refugee soldier who stormed onto a Normandy beach in a British army tank. At the time, Gary’s father, Randolph “Roy” Rogers of blessed memory, was 23 years old and had lost his parents and many relatives to the Nazis. He remembered landing on the beach as a moment of exhilaration. But Rogers’s path to Normandy was not straightforward. He had fled from Austria to England but, considered an “enemy alien” by the British, was exiled to Australia with 2,000 other Jewish refugees in the anti-Semitic-tinged Dunera affair. Rogers, along with an estimated 500 other “Dunera Boys,” returned to England to fight in the final onslaught against the Nazis and it is his courageous story I remember as we approach the 70th anniversary of D-Day on June 6. Sadly, Rogers died at age 93 about six months short of this landmark date. But he had already retraced his trek through Normandy with Gary

JERUSALEM – As Belgian police and Interpol began a massive hunt for the lone gunman who killed four people outside the Jewish Museum in Brussels last Saturday, the Israeli Foreign Ministry urged embassy personnel across Europe to increase their security. And Israeli embassy security officers in major European capitals have told Jewish leaders to work with local police authorities in order to upgrade security measures at local synagogues and community centers. The victims in Brussels were identified as Mira and Emmanuel Riva of Tel Aviv; Alexandre Strens, a museum employee; and Dominique Chabrier, a French volunteer at the museum. The museum’s camera surveillance video showed

a young assailant using a military-issued Kalashnikov automatic rifle. The fact that he was able to easily escape by car and avoid local authorities, who were caught off guard by the attack despite a rising tide of anti-Semitic attacks in Belgium, France and other EU countries, has angered local Jewish communal leaders and Israeli officials. Belgian media reported that the gunman recorded his attack with a portable video camera attached to his jacket. One Belgian newspaper reported that local authorities fear the attack was a copycat version of what took place in Toulouse two years ago when French Islamist Mohammed Merah opened fire on Jewish children and their teachers, killing four. Speculation surrounding Mossad involvement in the investigation was fueled by a report on Israel’s Channel 10 News on Sunday that the security service

Ukraine’s Jewish Leaders Celebrate Electoral Defeat Of Far Right The upsurge of support for far right parties in several European countries was noticeably absent in Ukraine, where Jewish leaders expressed satisfaction with the poor showing of ultranationalist candidates in the country’s presidential election and the victory by oligarch Viktor Poroshenko. Poroshenko, from Odessa, won 54.4 percent of Sunday’s vote, eliminating the need for a second round, the Ukrainian Central Elections Commission announced Tuesday after counting 94 percent of the votes cast. “The resounding victory of Poroshenko in just about every region of Ukraine not only eliminated the need for a costly second round but also sends an important message of unity,” said Josef Zissels, chairman of the Vaad Association of Jewish Organization and Communities of Ukraine. Former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko was second with 12.9 percent of the vote. Vadim Rabinovich, a Jewish community leader and businessman, finished seventh with 2.3 percent – more than the combined number of votes cast for Oleg Tyagnybok of the ultranationalist Svoboda party and for Dmytro Yarosh, leader of the Right Sector movement. Alexander Levin, president of the Jewish Community of Kiev, wrote on Facebook that Tyagnybok and Yarosh’s failure to match Rabinovich “showed that in Ukraine, there is no policy of-Semitism, period.” Rabinovich called on Poroshenko to dissolve the parliament within 100 days and call a new parliamentary election. The election followed the ouster in February of President Viktor Yanukovych in a revolution that began in November over his alleged corruption and perceived allegiance to Russia. Russian-backed troops later captured the Crimean Peninsula, which Russia annexed on March 18. Several locales in Ukraine are held by pro-Russian militiamen, including the eastern city of Donetsk, where some voters were prevented from reaching ballots amid fights between the separatists and government forces.

Pope At Yad Vashem: ‘Never Again’ Combined Sources

raelis because there is no Palestinian state and Israel’s position is that there can’t be before a full peace agreement is reached between Israel and the Palestinians. The pope also made a surprise stop at the Israeli security fence, where he prayed next to graffiti that read “Free Palestine” and “Bethlehem looks like Warsaw Ghetto.” Palestinian Arabs were initially chased away by Israeli police for spraying anti-Israel graffiti on the fence, and police then erased the graffiti with white

On Monday, the final day of his Mideast trip, Pope Francis visited the Western Wall and the Yad Vashem Holocaust museum, among other major sites in Jerusalem. The pope prayed at the Western Wall and left a note inside an envelope in one of the cracks between the stones. Western Wall Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz, characterizing the restored state of Israel as “the highest proof of the power of faith to change reality,” told the pope that “Even during the most difficult years, when anti-Semitism persecuted and beat us without mercy all over the world, we continued to believe in the ancient verses ‘You are sons to the Lord your God.’ Not out of pride, heaven forbid, but out of a deep sense of mission and out of a desire to repair the world in the kingdom of God.” Francis also met with Jerusalem Grand Mufti Sheikh Muhammad Hussein at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, urging his “Muslim brothers” to “respect and love one another as brothers and sisters.” “May we learn to understand the suffering of others,” the pope said. “May no one abuse the name of God Pope Francis prays at the Western Wall accompanied by the Kotel Rav, Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz. through violence.” (Photo: Nati Shohat / FLASH90) Before visiting Yad Vashem, the pope laid a wreath at Jerusalem’s Mount Herzl cemetery, where Israeli leaders and sol- paint.

was checking to see if the Rivas, the slain Israeli couple, were the victims of an organized assassination by a foreign terror organization. The Rivas had worked for Nativ, the Jewish Agency’s clandestine aliyah arm that once operated in the former Soviet Union. After the Soviet Union’s fall, the Rivas secured jobs in the Israeli Foreign Ministry. They had recently returned from a fouryear stint as Foreign Ministry representatives in Germany. While Channel 10 News reported that Israeli officials were skeptical that the Rivas were targeted for death, the security establishment was nonetheless obligated to find out who shot them and why. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu excoriated the European political establishment for turning a blind eye to the growing number of anti-Semitic and anti-Israel attacks across the EU. “There are elements in Europe that rush to condemn the construction of an apartment in Jerusalem but who do not rush to condemn, or offer only a weak condemnation of, the murder of Jews here or in Europe itself. Even worse, they applaud unity with terror groups like Hamas, which calls for the destruction of Israel,” said Netanyahu. Israeli intelligence operatives have alerted European police and intelligence officials about the growing number of radicalized European citizens who have crossed the border into Syria to fight alongside Sunni jihadist groups, including al Qaeda, in their battle to oust the Alawite-Shiite regime of President Bashar al-Assad. The Israelis believe that dozens if not hundreds of these experienced combat jihadists

have returned to various European capitals in order to wage a terrorist battle against Jewish targets. There have been several reports in recent days that Mohammed Merah’s sister might have fled to Syria to join a jihadist unit. The attack in Brussels was followed by Sunday’s anti-Semitic attack on two Jewish brothers in Paris. While French President Francois Hollande vowed to find and arrest the attackers, he and other EU leaders were shocked this week by the stronger-than-expected electoral showing of extreme right-wing political parties, many with openly anti-Semitic agendas, across Europe. (See Week in Review, page 50.) Meanwhile, some 2,000 people, many with their small children, showed up at the Jewish Museum entrance for a vigil – a mere 27 hours after the attack. The gathering was attended by Belgian Prime Minister Elio Di Rupo and other ministers, who took time off from Belgium’s federal elections Sunday to show solidarity with Belgian Jewry. Also present was a group of young Muslim women. “We don’t know who is behind this, and it doesn’t matter. We came because we are hurting and crying inside,” said one of the women, Yfia Souad. Another group of Jews convened nearby for a screening of a film about the Holocaust. The event had been scheduled long before the shootings, but instead of canceling, organizers dedicated the event to remembering the shooting victims. Agnes Bensimon, a Jewish mother from Brussels who attended the screening, said fear would not prevent her from attending a Jewish gathering. “It’s a frightening thought, but there is no question of capitulating,” she said. “That’s what terrorists attempt to achieve, and they will not achieve it here. Sadly, we are experienced.” – Supplemental reporting by JTA

There is no denying the significance of Pope Francis’s expressions of horror and anguish over the Holocaust during his visit to the Middle East this week. As the spiritual leader of more than 1 billion Roman Catholics, his emotional words are bound to have a real impact on the way many people around the world view the Nazis’ war of extermination against the Jews. Yet candor requires that we also note the aspects of the pope’s trip that were harmful to the interests of Israel – namely, the calculated bows to both Israeli and Palestinian symbols and sensitivities. Because for all the praise the pope garnered for that show of evenhandedness, the fact is that ignoring Palestinian recalcitrance only serves to encourage more of it. It has long been clear to us that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is not prepared to negotiate with Israel if it means he’d have to make meaningful concessions. Rather, his notion of negotiations seems to entail a time frame for Israel’s meeting his unalterable demands. Indeed, when Israel balks, he simply threatens to – and in some cases actually does – renew efforts to gain recognition of his demands from the United Nations, without of course having to give anything in return. And these machinations gain momentum when he perceives that the United States or the international community is more firmly in his corner on a particular issue. Seen from this perspective, we believe Pope Francis complicated mightily the prospects for peace in the Middle East with his visit to the region. To be sure, there were pluses –in addition to his aforementioned reaction at Yad Vashem, he became the first pope to visit the tomb of Theodor Herzl, widely recognized as the father of the Zionist movement. Nonetheless, the overall effect of the trip was a boost to Mr. Abbas in

7:17 8:29 7:36 8:11 8:45 8:04 8:37 8:38 8:12 9:15

his determination that the Palestinians not have to deal directly with Israel in any serious manner. When the pope touched down in the Middle East, it was not in Jordan or within the Green Line, as other popes have done. Rather, he went directly to an area in the West Bank administered by the Palestinian Authority. And while many have spoken of the eventual establishment of a Palestinian state, the pope spoke in the present tense of “the State of Palestine.� Words like that, providing a papal imprimatur to the idea of an already existing Palestinian state, surely took Mr. Abbas’s breath away. And then came the stop at Israel’s security wall where the pontiff prayed at a section that had been spray-painted with graffiti reading “Free Palestine� and comparing Bethlehem to the Jewish ghetto in Warsaw during the reign of the Nazis. He labeled the fence as “monstrous� and touched his forehead at a place where someone had sprayed the words: “Pope we need some 1 to speak about justice.� That scene at the security wall went viral and no doubt confirmed Mr. Abbas’s view that easy symbolism beats hard negotiations anytime. The rest of the pope’s brief stay in Bethlehem was even more of a coup for those pushing the Palestinian narrative, as was evident in the coverage of media outlets far and wide. Here, for example, was The New York Times: In Bethlehem, where Francis spent six hours, he met Mr. Abbas as a peer, giving the Palestinians the kind of high-profile boost they had been seeking, and spotlighting the Vatican’s support for the 2012 United Nations

The Real Duplicity

Thank you for the May 23 editorial “What Part of Iran’s Duplicity Doesn’t the President Get?� Unfortunately, it is the duplicity of people like Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) that astounds us. He was lauded at the AIPAC conference and at the American Friends of Likud dinner for his strong support of Israel, but when it came time to choose between politics and principle, he cast his vote with his political leader, President Obama. The U.S.-Israel Strategic Partnership Act was scrapped because Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn) wanted to add an amendment that would prevent President Obama from having free rein to make whatever deal he wants

with Iran regarding its nuclear development. Corker wanted Congress to have a say in the matter. Menendez didn’t want Democrats to be confused by the facts and so he shelved the Act. We know that President Obama, at best, seems unable to “get� Iran’s duplicity. It must be up to Congress, representing the American people, to make the critical decisions. Tragically, it looks as though that won’t happen. Americans should call their senators and protest this dangerous decision-making. Helen Freedman Executive Director Americans for a Safe Israel/ AFSI

Standing Against J Street

Yasher koach to Jews Against Divisive Leadership for the May 23 advertisement that so forthrightly condemns the vote by United Synagogues for Conservative Judaism to accept J Street into the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations. The leftward lurch in recent years by United Synagogues regarding Israel clearly has dismayed much if not most of its lay membership. Assertions by J Street that it is “pro-Israel� ring awfully hollow indeed, given that J Street

repeatedly walks virtually in lockstep with the anti-Israel crowd. If the Presidents Conference must accommodate everything in the name of diversity, it surely would stand for nothing. Richard D. Wilkins Syracuse, NY

Where Are The Moderates?

Why is it that so few supposedly moderate Muslim organizations feel attacks on Israeli citizens or Jews deserve condemnation? Apparently, anti-Israel and anti-Semitic bigotry is so deeply entrenched in most of the Arab and Muslim communities, as shown by the recent worldwide ADL survey, that any violent action against Jews is acceptable. One wonders why any Israeli government would consider making peace with such an enemy. Sadly, it’s an impossible task, as demonstrated by the unyielding positions and anti-Israel rhetoric of the allegedly moderate Mahmoud Abbas. Nelson Marans Silver Spring, MD

Op-Ed

Stealth Anti-Semitism In Middle School By RICHARD L. CRAVATTS

The Rialto Unified School District school board outside of Los Angeles was in full damage control earlier this month, fending off universal opprobrium over a third-quarter English Language Arts argumentative writing/research project given to 2,000 eighth-graders. The breathtakingly ill-conceived assignment asked students to “read and discuss multiple, credible articles on this issue, and write an argumentative essay, based on cited textual evidence, in which you explain whether or not you believe [the Holocaust] was an actual event in history, or merely a political scheme created to influence public emotion and gain wealth.” Most critics denounced the assignment as absurd on its face, since it asked middle school students, after reading a only handful of brief research essays, to convince a reader that the Holocaust, one of the most documented historical events in modern human history, either happened or did not happen. Even more egregious than the notion that the Shoah might not have occurred was the statement that, as the instructions for the assignment read, “some people claim the Holocaust is not an actual event, but instead is a propaganda tool.” Given that even American high school students cannot identify, as random examples, the half century during which the U.S. Civil War was fought, name a single Supreme Court justice, identify the intent of the Bill of Rights, or identify Britain on a map of the world, the notion that eighth graders could coherently disprove something that is an historical fact, not an opinion, is obviously a useless intellectual exercise. And critics of the assignment were appalled Richard L. Cravatts, Ph.D., is president of Scholars for Peace in the Middle East.

that students were even exposed to the idea that the Holocaust was a myth in the first place, a notion only those on the lunatic fringe embrace. While the shell-shocked spokesperson for Rialto school district, Syeda Jafri, assured the media that no complaint about the assignment had been forthcoming from within the district system, either from teachers or parents, the larger question is how the committee of eighth-grade teachers who conceived the critical thinking exercise in the first place had not anticipated the calamitous reaction to their choice for the essay topic. Presumably, every member of that committee had attended college; some, perhaps, even possess advanced degrees. In an education culture suffused with political correctness – and especially on college campuses where the educators studied for their profession – an enormous amount of attention is paid to who may say what about whom and what is acceptable thought and speech on campuses where “victim” groups vie for rights and accommodations. One of the groups that does not fare well on campuses these days, however, is Jews, particularly in the context of the debate over Israel and the Palestinians. In fact, the same careless sentiments that accuse Jewish students of being inherently racist for supporting the “apartheid” state of Israel seem to have been present in the committee room when ideas for this year’s assignment were being tossed about for consideration. Consider how classically anti-Semitic the language of the assignment itself is, suggesting in the same paragraph – not once but twice – that the Holocaust “is a propaganda tool that was used for political and monetary gain,” and “merely a political scheme created to influence public emotion and gain.” Who is seeking monetary gain? Who schemed to extort the West? Who has global influence over public

opinion? Who seeks undeserved profit? For anti-Semites, the answer has always been the same: Jews. And that is the very clear message transmitted in the essay assignment. Professor Robert S. Wistrich, one of the world’s leading authorities on anti-Semitism, has noted that Holocaust denial by definition libels Jews; “that, by accusing Jews…of inventing the Shoah to extract billions of dollars and blackmail Germany or the West, the deniers add a peculiarly vile conspiracy theory to the arsenal of millennial anti-Semitism and transform the victims into superlatively cunning, fraudulent, and despicable perpetrators” – precisely what the assumption would be of any student who completed the assignment with the thesis that the Holocaust was a fraud, a “scheme,” or a “propaganda tool.” For educators seeped in a contemporary cultural of political correctness, it is nearly unbelievable that not one person in that committee room failed to see the moral lethality of the assignment’s language. No one has accused anyone involved with the assignment of being anti-Semitic, but in the highly unlikely event that had anyone on the committee had even proposed a topic that touched upon any other intellectually or culturally incendiary topic, it would have been instantly suppressed. The assignment was meant to promote critical thinking, and there is certainly a wide range of relevant though controversial topics that might have provided a rich source of intellectual wrestling for those middle school minds; topics that would not require students to contradict historical fact and that are still open to actual debate and investigation. For instance, they could debate whether African Americans

My Encounter With Jew-Hatred By Father GABRIEL ROCHELLE

Father Gabriel Rochelle is pastor of St. Anthony of the Desert Orthodox Mission in Las Cruces, New Mexico, and a member of the steering committee of the Shalom Hartman Institute’s New Paths: Christians Engaging Israel Project.

She said, “You’ve got to be careful about the Jews, because you know they have taken over Hollywood and Wall Street and all the newspapers.” At this point I looked for any exit I could find, but the prescription was not yet ready. I said, “Where do you get such slanted information?” She replied that she did not really attend a church, because most of them were bogus, but she trusted a handful of preachers she had found on YouTube. They were telling it “like it is,” including the stuff about the Jews secretly ruling everything. I thought I would throw in a sarcastic quip about the Protocols of Zion, but I realized she would have received such a statement unblinkingly, as if it were the truth and meant I was beginning to bond with her in our secret knowledge about the state of the world. I asked if she remembered that Jesus was a Jew and that the earliest church was and could only have been made up of Jews who followed him. She replied that the apostles Paul and Peter had argued about this, that Paul had won, and the Jews under Peter had lost, and nobody could force the Law on us anymore. I said that Paul struggled mightily with the issue of the relationship between Jews and Christians and that he said God’s plan was to reunite us in some mysterious way at the end of time, but that for the moment we had to struggle to find our unity on the ground. She stood upright, with a knowing look and narrowed eyes, and told me I was one of those “Christians” who had given up the faith. I heard the quotation marks in her tone of voice. So I said in a loud voice, as the anger built within me, “These people are liars, they are leading you in

the wrong direction, and you had better watch out for your soul.” At this she hastily pushed her cart down the aisle of over-the-counter medicines and disappeared around the end cap of the next aisle. My heart was pounding. People were looking but trying not to. I was rattled. I drove home the couple hundred miles, rolling the events over and over in my mind, looking for alternative ways I could have handled the situation. None appeared. This incident reminded me, in a stark way, that we have not dismantled the tide of hatred for the Jews who “rule the world.” No matter how many decades it’s been since the Holocaust, an ocean of hostility persists, capable of rising to tidal levels in this one woman in a store on a sunny April afternoon. Most unnerving is that these attitudes and concepts and ideas are not at all perceived to be loony, twisted, or in any way prejudiced. They are simply perceived as the truth. And that’s that. I look in the mirror and ask whether or not I am guilty of perpetuating these dangerous negative myths. I look away, confident that I personally am not. I have devoted a great chunk of my lifetime, energy and work to combating such nonsense. But then I remember that this teaching was not uncommon in churches for more than a millennium, and that in my own tradition pogroms often happened on Holy Thursday – when people were told the Jews killed Jesus. On a scale of world history, it is only moments since many of us (not all) have given up the teaching of contempt. We have no choice; we have to remain vigilant. Kyrie eleison. Lord, have mercy.

I was in one of those big box stores in another city, waiting for a prescription. I was wearing my cassock and vest and skufia (priest’s cap). I had attended the New Mexico Orthodoxy clergy April meeting and stopped on my way home to fill a prescription, because it was significantly less expensive than at our home pharmacy. Several people wheeled their carts past me and said hello or made various comments. Folks are not used to seeing clerical garb in public any more, not even on Roman Catholic priests, so people often will ask, “Oh what denomination are you?” That affords me the opportunity for the stock response, “I’m not in a denomination, I’m Orthodox,” which may or may not lead to further conversation. She was wearing a flower print dress and a matching scarf. The cross around her neck was tasteful, not too prominent, but nevertheless was not a mere charm; she meant it as a statement. She was, I would guess, about 40. She did not ask about my “denomination.” She allowed as how she had once visited an Orthodox church in another city in the state. In the next breath she quietly said something like, “You’ve got to be careful whom you talk to, because many people who call themselves Christians have given up the true faith.” I realized this might go rapidly downhill, so I simply agreed with her on the theory that she would wheel away at this point. I was wrong.

Do ADL Surveys Cause Anti-Semitism? By SYDNEY ROSS SINGER

The Anti-Defamation League recently announced to the world the shocking results of its international survey on anti-Semitism. It seems that, despite efforts to combat the disease of prejudice against Jews, this epidemic has spread, and now infects about a quarter of the world’s population. Clearly, it’s time to rethink the approach that has been taken in treating this social disease, including the use of surveys like the one used to test the problem, which may actually be causing more anti-Semitism. In fact, basic social psychology would suggest that the survey used by the ADL can actually reinforce and spread anti-Semitic attitudes. According to the ADL website, the survey, which has been used repeatedly since the 1960s, focused on a series of 11 statements and respondents were asked to agree or disagree with them. Here are the statements. Jews are more loyal to Israel than to [this country/the countries they live in]. Jews have too much power in international financial markets. Jews have too much control over global affairs. Jews think they are better than other people. Jews have too much control over the global media. Jews are responsible for most of the world’s wars. Jews have too much power in the business world. Jews don’t care what happens to anyone but their own kind. People hate Jews because of the way Jews behave. Jews have too much control over the United States government. Jews still talk too much about what happened to them in the Holocaust. Note that each question is a negative statement about Jews.That is a major problem with this survey. When people hear a negative statement, it has power in their minds, even if they disagree with it. If they had no prior prejudice, this exposure to negative Sydney Ross Singer is a medical anthropologist and director of the Institute for the Study of Culturogenic Disease in Pahoa, Hawaii.

thoughts about Jews would be a bad first impression. For example, imagine that someone named David wants to know what people think about him, so he hires someone to go around and ask people – even those who have no idea who David is – if they agree or disagree with statements about him. The first statement is, “David only cares about himself.” Do you agree or disagree? Of course, you don’t know David, so you might honestly say you have no idea of the truth or falsehood of that statement. But it does give you a bad feeling about David, doesn’t it? You are then told, “People hate David because of the way he behaves.” Do you agree or disagree? Now you’re thinking about why people hate David. So you must assume people do hate David, but since you don’t know him personally, you can’t honestly say why. But you now think David may be someone you would dislike, too. Next you’re told, “David thinks he is better than everyone else, is responsible for causing trouble with his neighbors, and has too much power in society.” That makes you scratch your head; you don’t know David but clearly he’s some kind of character to have such negative things said about him. And so, having been asked to agree or disagree with negative statements about David, a person whom you may never have met, you now have some ideas about David, and they’re all negative. This is how prejudice starts. You have developed anti-Davidism. People tend to agree with the crowd. That’s a fact of social psychology. If a person is told the crowd dislikes something, that person is likely to go along with that feeling. In the ADL survey, most respondents had no exposure to actual Jewish people. They only thought what others thought. The ADL’s survey inadvertently reinforced prejudicial stereotypes against Jews by giving people concrete negative statements that apparently reflected public opinion and with which agreement was a clear choice. If we wanted to ask people their opinion of the Holocaust, we could ask them to agree or disagree

with a true statement such as “Six million Jews were killed during the Holocaust.” Or we could ask them to agree or disagree with a false statement such as “The Holocaust is a Jewish fabrication to get international sympathy for Zionistic expansionism.” Are these questions equivalent in their impact? The first question reinforces the truth, the second creates doubt concerning the truth. Someone who may never have questioned the Holocaust as a real event may begin to do so by the false statement. The bottom line is that survey questions are sources of information for those being surveyed. They teach and influence as well as detect. Negative surveys, like the one the ADL used, can create the very problem it is trying to assess. Imagine if the questions asked were positive statements about Jews instead of the harmful stereotypes used. It could have asked, for example, if one agreed or disagreed with the following statements: Jews are responsible members of society in every culture in which they live. Jews are a proud people who have survived for thousands of years despite adversity. Jews are known for their philanthropy and kindness toward the poor and suffering. Jewish people feel a personal responsibility for creating world peace. Jewish people are passionate, intelligent, and kind. People admire Jews because of their rich heritage and high sense of morality and ethics. I wish I were a Jew. The Holocaust, in which 6 million Jews were killed, was a loss for all of humanity. If questions like these had been asked of non-Jews around the world, it may have produced a lasting positive impression. And that is what is needed to counter anti-Semiticism. Jews have to stop telling everyone why they hate us and start telling them why they like us. We need to be positive in a negative world. That is the Jewish way. We are a light in a world of darkness and shadows. Let’s shine our best on the world, instead of telling the world how dark it is.

Hillary: The Kim Kardashian Of American Politics By DANIEL GREENFIELD Occasionally someone pranks an unwitting MSNBC panelist or a bunch of teenagers by asking them to name a single Hillary accomplishment. Even though Hillary has piled up more awards than Charles de Gaulle, nothing comes to mind. An editorial in the Chicago Tribune has the writer asking a group of Chicago leaders the same question about Obama’s foreign policy. Silence follows. Obama and Hillary don’t just suffer from a shortage of accomplishments. They’re also burdened with a surplus of failures. Benghazi worries so many Hillary supporters because there is nothing to balance it against. There is no “But look at all the good she did.” Hillary didn’t do any good. She didn’t do much of anything except tour countries and pose for photos. As a secretary of state she made a perfectly adequate first lady. Obama talks the TelePrompter talk, but when you look at the results they’re universally awful. Obama’s policies are treated as disposables to be forgotten about. Scandal management consists of Obama making a serious face and promising to take this serious problem very seriously before heading out for a round of serious golfing. Don’t cry for Hillary and don’t write off Obama. Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Horowitz Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam who maintains a blog at sultanknish.blogspot.com. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.

Achievement of the old kind is overrated. It’s not about how high your GPA is but how many politically correct extracurriculars you have. In politics, just like in college, diversity and style increasingly count for more than achievement. From the sociology major who keeps thinking she should volunteer at a soup kitchen to the most powerful man in the country who keeps saying he wishes he could do something about all these problems, the left thinks that wanting to do something is what makes you a good person. It doesn’t matter if what you’re doing does any good. It doesn’t matter if you succeed. The politics of the left are narcissistic. Those on the left are less concerned with changing the world than with being good people by wanting to change the world. That’s why Obama received his premature Nobel Peace Prize not for what he did but for what he talked about doing. There are two Obamas. One is the real politician. The other is the imaginary Obama of 2007-08; a figment of David Axelrod’s imagination layered over with bizarre art and visions that transformed him into a superhuman being of light before he ever set foot in the Oval Office. This Obama can never fail because he doesn’t really exist. It’s this Obama who makes the public appearances on the front pages while the other Obama’s policies are discussed somewhere in the meatier parts of the paper. The idea of Obama is more real than his policies. The imaginary Obama has his counterpart in a reimagined Hillary.

Hillary’s lack of achievement as secretary of state gives her a purity that she lacked when she went from the Senate to the 2008 presidential campaign trail. It’s easier for the left to project its visions onto a blank space that spent a few years touring the world than on Senator Clinton who had actual political positions. Like Obama, she is free to be anything. She too can lower the oceans or raise them, fix all the things her predecessor broke and usher in a new age of world peace. That purity of blankness is why Obama approaches every scandal as if he had just heard about it on the evening news. It’s as if every day in office is his first day. It’s important that he have no specific track record, just the vague one of fighting for the right things like gay rights, illegal aliens and 3D printer hubs. Not to mention gay illegal aliens running 3D printer hubs. Don’t ask Obama or Hillary about Benghazi. Dude, don’t you know that was two years ago? Ask them what they think about Kim Kardashian or Donald Sterling or racial injustice in America. Ask them what their favorite movie or song is. Treat them like celebrities, not politicians. Don’t ever ask them what they achieved. It’s like asking Kim Kardashian what she achieved. Hillary Clinton will run for the White House on a platform of being famously famous. As the Kim Kardashian of national politics, she’s the inevitable nominee of her party. Her accomplishments are self-referential. Hillary’s accomplishment is being Hillary. She deserves to be the nominee because she is Hillary.

Last week I wrote about an invitation I received to speak at Congregation Ohr Torah in North Woodmere, L.I., the shul my husband established and from where he kindled the light of Torah in countless hearts. I hadn’t really been back since his passing in 1996. I always feared it would be too painful, too emotionally taxing. But when this invitation to speak came, I happily accepted. As I anticipate my appearance at the shul this coming Sunday, memories flood my mind. Questions, too. How will it feel to pass the house where we once lived? How will I feel in the shul we built with so much sacrifice and so many tears? How will I feel when I see the street on which the shul was built – Hungry Harbor Road, now also known as Rabbi Jungreis Way? In my mind’s eye I see the funeral procession passing our home. There were hundreds of people there, including members of the Nassau County Police Department. Helicopters were flying overhead. Congregation members young and old as well as rabbis and layman from all over the world had come to honor this saintly man, My Rabbi. As the procession passed our house, it suddenly came to a halt. I knew we were going to stop there for a moment but the moment turned into many minutes. I asked our driver why we were standing still. “Rebbetzin, you won’t believe this,” he said. “Take a look.” I looked and saw the pond across the street from our old house. Before telling you what else I saw, however, I’ll give you some background about that pond. It belonged to Nassau County and was surround by a fence and gate. My husband had obtained the keys so that members of the community could go there on Rosh Hashanah for Tashlich services. People started coming to the pond for Tashlich with their children and grandchildren, and every year more and more joined us. Eventually the pond was dubbed “the Tashlich pond.” My beloved husband would visit that pond not just on Rosh Hashanah but throughout the year. When our children were small he took them there to feed the ducks. He continued the tradition with our grandchildren, who loved going to the pond with their wonderful zaidie who even cared for the little ducklings G-d created. Getting back to the story of the funeral procession, what I saw when I looked out at the pond was simply amazing. There were dozens of ducks blocking the road. They’d somehow managed to come through the gates. They stood at full attention, like an honor guard rendering tribute to their kindly, compassionate rabbi. Mind you, it was winter, when ducks normally make their way to warmer climes. But here they were, watching the funeral procession of the shepherd who was always there to feed and nourish them. Was this a miracle? It’s so easy these days to dismiss anything out of the ordinary as just another natural phenomenon for which there must be a rational explanation. But there was no rational explanation for what we were seeing and there obviously was an important message in that extraordinary spectacle. So what was the message of the ducks? There is a simple principle in Judaism called gratitude. Gratitude is the ability to acknowledge our dependence on the Almighty and say “thank You.” Unfortunately, ours is a generation that feels everything is coming to us – that we’re entitled. Such an attitude is foreign to Judaism. Yes, we routinely – almost unthinkingly – thank the store clerk or the cab driver. That’s easy. But to say it with real meaning to those who have truly sacrificed themselves for our sake – our mothers and fathers, for example – is not so simple.

‘Extremists Believe The Only Good Muslim Is A 7th-Century Muslim’ An Interview With Activist and Lecturer Raheel Raza By Elliot Resnick Jewish Press Staff Reporter Criticizing Islam or Islamic society is often risky business. Say an unkind word about it and one is liable to be vilified as an intolerant, ignorant bigot. Documentary producer Raphael Shore knows this firsthand. His films “Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West” (2005) and “The Third Jihad: Radical Islam’s Vision for America” (2008), were branded Islamophobic and attacked by liberal watchdog groups. Undaunted, Shore recently produced yet another controversial documentary, “Honor Diaries,” which highlights the pervasiveness of underage marriage, honor violence, and female circumcision in Muslim societies. Although intended to help women, the film has been harshly criticized by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which successfully lobbied to have screenings of the film at the University of Illinois and University of Michigan canceled. The Jewish Press recently spoke to Raheel Raza, president of the Council for Muslims Facing Tomorrow, and one of nine activists prominently featured in “Honor Diaries.” The Jewish Press: This film bills itself as “more than a movie, it is a movement to save women and girls from human rights abuses – around the world and here in America.” And yet it seems like conservatives are the ones championing this film while liberals, who claim to fight for human rights, are generally standing on the sidelines. Why is that? Raza: It’s always been this way. I’ve been an activist for over 25 years, and I have always found that there is a deep silence when it comes to issues relating to women – especially Muslim women. Western feminist groups and liberals don’t want to touch the topic; they drop it like a hot coal…. One reason is political correctness. A second one is fear. They’re coerced into silence by Islamist organizations telling them they’ll be called racist or that there’s no need for them to speak about someone else’s culture. But we [believe] that cultural relativism should not trump human rights. It’s not about religion or culture or a specific group of people. It’s about human rights. And those who are trying to shut the dialogue or who are not supporting this cause obviously don’t care about human rights. But some people believe it’s wrong to interfere in someone else’s culture. Why is it wrong to interfere? As a human being, if you see someone else being hurt, are you just going

Accepting Jewish Values Prize In Israel, Bloomberg Strikes Universalist Tone By Ben Sales JERUSALEM – Michael Bloomberg received the $1 million Genesis Prize for embodying Jewish values. The billionaire and former New York City mayor said they could just as well have been Christian, Muslim or Hindu values. In Jerusalem last week for the first awarding of what some have called the Jewish Nobel, Bloomberg made a day of it. He appeared with Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat to discuss urban innovation, spoke to the media and received the Genesis Prize from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at a grandiose ceremony hosted by Jay Leno. The prize honors a laureate “whose actions, in addition to their achievements, embody the character of the Jewish people through commitment to Jewish values, the Jewish community and/or to the state of Israel.” Bloomberg praised Israel and remarked fondly on his Jewish upbringing that set him on the path to success, first as the founder of a major financial software and media company, then as a three-term mayor of America’s largest city. But he noted repeat-

edly that the values he absorbed as a child could have come from any culture or religion. “No one religion has a lock on great people or terrible people,” Bloomberg said at a news conference preceding the award ceremony. “The values I learned from my parents are probably the same values I hope Christians and Muslims and Hindus and Buddhists teach to their people.” The Genesis Prize is a joint project of Israel’s Prime Minister’s Office, the Jewish Agency for Israel and the Genesis Philanthropy Group, a coalition of Russian Jewish philanthropists who funded the prize. The group also funds organizations and programs that engage Russian-speaking Jews in Israel, the United States and the former Soviet Union. In selecting Bloomberg, the Genesis group chose a fellow billionaire who is perhaps better known for defending Muslim rights than Jewish ones. As New York City mayor, Bloomberg was a strident defender of plans to build an Islamic cultural center near Ground Zero in Lower Manhattan, a controversy he brought up at the news conference. “There was a brouhaha in New York when they wanted to build a mosque near the World Trade Cen-

ter,” he said. “If I’m going to be able to build my shul, they need to be able to build their mosque.” Bloomberg had said last year that he would use the $1 million to promote Israeli-Palestinian business cooperation. But at the news conference, he said the Genesis group had dissuaded him from that course, urging him instead to fund the Genesis Generations Prize, which will provide 10 grants of $100,000 each to candidates with the best “big ideas” guided by Jewish values that benefit the world. Non-Jews will be eligible for the grants. Bloomberg is a frequent visitor to Israel who once came to show solidarity with the country’s embattled towns during the Gaza war in 2009. Last week he paid tribute to the country, asking, “If the dream of Israel can be realized, what dream can’t be?” But he also made sure to emphasize his universalist bent. “We are as one with this city and this country as we can be, to build a brighter future for everyone,” he said. “With enough hard work and faith in our convictions, we can build a better world for our children and their children.” (JTA)

Shul Awareness of Public Yizkor Tefilla AV HARACHAMIM Campaign To properly commemorate those communities that were destroyed ‘v aushe kg, let us reinforce the respectful approach, seize this iumr ,g, and wait for all mispallelim, including those who have parents and traditionally leave the shul during Yizkor, to reassemble and then recite the meaningful Av Harachamim together with the proper vbuf that this communal Yizkor deserves. ABOUT AV HARACHAMIM One of the most powerful tefillos, commemorating the sacrifices of the kedoshim and, honoring the men, women and children who preceded us and enabled our Jewish survival, the tefilla was composed over 900 years ago after the bloody massacres of the Crusades. Originally only recited on the Shabbos before Shavuos, it eventually became popular to recite it every Shabbos (except on a “festive” Shabbos when Tachanun would not be recited if it were a weekday or when there’s a special event such as Birchas HaChodesh). During the Sefirah period – when most of the crusade massacres actually occurred, as well as subsequent tragedies such as the Tach V’Tat Pogroms, and in recent times the destruction of Warsaw ghetto and the massacre of Hungarian Jewry – in almost all Shuls Av Harachamim is always recited.

On Yom Tov when the Yizkor service is recited, Av Harachamim is recited after Yizkor. In effect, Av Harachamim is a communal “Yizkor” – vcuyk ubheukt orfzh – memorial prayer, and not a personal prayer.

Let us join together at this auspicious time to commemorate the Kedoshim with a communal Av Harachamim recited in unison at the end of Tefilas Yizkor.

Co-Sponsored By:

& National Council of Young Israel

For the generation of those who survived the Holocaust the final moments of ne’ilah are approaching. This Shavuos marks the 70th anniversary of the destruction of Hungarian Jews. By that time, most of Polish Jewry and the rest of Eastern European Jewry were already destroyed and the Hungarian deportations were at their peak.

Pope Francis Changes Mind On Opening Secret Archives Pope Francis nixed a plan to open secret Vatican archive files relevant to the Holocaust following pressure from Germany and France, an informed Western diplomat based in Tel Aviv told this column. Major Jewish organizations had petitioned Francis to open the Holocaust-era Vatican archives. The issue of the Vatican and its relationship with Nazi Germany has long been a point of contention in Jewish-Catholic relations. The topic is particularly timely since Francis will soon decide whether World War II-era pope, Pius XII, should be canonized. Pius XII played a private role in discreetly aiding Jews and other Nazi victims, but he did not speak publicly against the German atrocities. When he came to power, Adolf Hitler signed a compact with the Vatican in which the Catholic Church agreed to accept the Nazi government in exchange for Hitler pledging not to interfere with Vatican affairs. Historians say Pius XII knew about the concentration camps and mass murders at the beginning of the Holocaust in part from reports from priests in Germany and various occupied countries. Mass Murderer Inspired By Warcraft Character? From his eerie laugh to specific quotes in his chilling YouTube diatribe, Santa Barbara mass murderer Elliott Rodger seems to be channeling, perhaps even mimicking, a specific character from the violent Warcraft video game, this reporter has found. It has been widely reported that Rodger was an avid Warcraft player. His online manifesto states he would retreat deep into the game for hours per day and would dream of Warcraft when he went on family vacations and could not play. What has been missed is that quotes from his final YouTube video announcing his murderous intentions seem to come from the Warcraft character known as Garrosh Hellscream, whose pursuit of dominance and power lead him to hate the Warcraft races, including his own. In his last YouTube video, Rodger states in what seems like prepared remarks, “If I had it in my power, I would stop at nothing to reduce every single one of you to mountains of skulls and rivers of blood, and rightfully so.” The Hellscream character similarly went on a diatribe citing mountains of skulls and rivers of blood. Official sound files from World of Warcraft’s Mists of Pandaria have Hellscream, voiced by Patrick Seitz, stating, “I have seen mountains of skulls and rivers of blood, and I will have my world.” Hellscream then goes into a relaxed, manic laugh that Rodger seems to mirror. The Hellscream character’s pursuit of superiority may have fed Rodger’s YouTube statement, “I am in truth the superior one, the true alpha male.” Like Hellscream’s hatred for his own race, Rodger stated, “I hate all of you. Humanity is a disgusting, wretched, depraved species.” Hellscream and Rodger even evince the same speaking pattern. They both begin threats with the word “yes” expressed using similar, threatening intonation. U.S. Secretly Meets With Hamas The U.S. last week held a clandestine meeting in Egypt with Ghazi Hamad, the deputy foreign minister of Hamas, according to informed Middle Eastern security officials. Aaron Klein is a New York Times bestselling author and senior reporter for WND.com. He is also host of an investigative radio program on New York’s 970 AM Radio on Sundays from 7 to 9 p.m. Eastern. His website is KleinOnline.com.

The officials would not say whether the meeting was with a current member of the U.S. government or a former diplomat acting as a proxy for the Obama administration. Messages were exchanged about Hamas’s intentions as part of a newly formed Palestinian unity government with the rival Fatah party, led by Mahmoud Abbas, the officials said. Last week, Israel’s Haaretz newspaper quoted an unnamed White House official stating the Obama administration is leaning toward cooperating with the Hamas-Fatah Palestinian unity government, even if Hamas does not recognize Israel’s right to exist and despite objections from the Israeli government. Previously, the Middle East Quartet, made up of the U.S., Russia, European Union, and United Nations, declared it would not deal with Hamas unless the terrorist group renounces violence and recognizes Israel. The Haaretz article did not mention any U.S.Hamas meeting. Was Obama Really Unaware? When he was campaigning for Congress in 2000, President Obama unveiled a sweeping healthcare plan that modeled aspects of the Veterans Administration’s medical system. Eight years later, during his transition into the White House, he proposed in his “Obama-Biden” plan to “make the VA a leader of national health care reform so that veterans get the best care possible.” His 2000 and 2008 plans are not the only indications he was familiar with the VA medical system early in his career. Earlier this week, WorldNetDaily reported that documentation and testimony reveals that in 2005, Obama, as a U.S. senator, was briefed on dangerously long wait times for returning veterans to receive health treatment. Obama was a member of the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee. On numerous occasions he publicly chastised President George W. Bush about the wait times, treatment shortages and lack of funding to the Veterans Administration’s medical programs. On June 28, 2005, for example, Obama complained at a hearing on the VA medical care budget that “somehow it seems that we’re willing to trot in front of flags and take photographs with soldiers, but when it comes to the appropriations process, we’re not there.” Prior to the Senate hearing, in January 2005, the Chicago Sun-Times reported Obama held an emotional meeting with 500 veterans packed into a Chicago hall. The veterans complained about the way the VA was treating them, including waiting for treatment. In June 2005, Obama and other senators, including Democrats Harry Reid and Dianne Feinstein, wrote a letter to Bush demanding his administration provide for the health-care needs of America’s veterans. All this information comes amid a brewing scandal over when Obama was made aware of the VA shortages, alleged secret waitlists, and reports of offering inaccurate waiting times and scheduling failures. The waitlists kept wounded veterans lingering and may have contributed to as many as 40 veteran deaths in Phoenix alone. Tuesday, the Washington Times reported the Obama-Biden transition team was briefed in 2008 on a data integrity issue within the VA. “This is not only a data integrity issue in which [Veterans Health Administration] reports unreliable performance data; it affects quality of care by delaying – and potentially denying – deserving veterans timely care,” wrote VA officials in a briefing obtained by the Times. Asked about the scandal, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney indicated Obama first learned of it in press reports.

Always Ready To Bless – With Love The articles in this column are transcriptions and adaptations of shiurim by Rav Joseph Ber Soloveitchik, zt”l. The Rav’s unique perspective on Chumash permeated many of the shiurim and lectures he presented at various venues over a 40 plus year period. His words add an important perspective that makes the Chumash in particular, and our tradition in general, vibrant and relevant to our generation. “Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying: So shall you bless the children of Israel, saying to them (amor lahem)” (Bamidbar 6:23). Rashi says 1) Amor is similar in form to words zachor and shamor (in the Ten Commandments); 2) Amor is written in the full form (with the letter vav), [to teach us] that they should not be in a hasty or bewildered state when they bless the people, but rather they should bless them with the proper intent and with a full heart. The Rav examined both of these ideas. Why did Rashi compare the form of the word amor to that of zachor? Zachor is the infinitive form (the root form of the word). The imperative form (tzivuy) would be z’chor. If Hashem was commanding us to keep the Shabbos or to remember the Shabbos, why not use the imperative form of the word, z’chor, sh’mor? Rashi (Shemos 20:8) says that the infinitive form teaches that one must always be thinking of Shabbos. Rashi quotes the opinion of Shamai to set aside the choicest objects encountered during the week for Shabbos. The Gemara (Beitza 16a) says that Hillel had a different approach, that he would dedicate all his actions to the glory of Hashem and use the best that he had available before Shabbos. Rashi and the Rambam agree with the opinion of Shamai in this case, even though we have a principle that we always accept the opinion of Beis Hillel, because in this case Shamai’s opinion matches the commandment as written in the Torah. Zachor teaches that no matter what day of the week it might be, one must always think of, and look forward to, Shabbos. In the parshah of Bircas Kohanim, the Torah says “amor lahem” and not emor lahem. From the use of the infinitive form instead of the imperative form, we learn that once a kohen goes up to bless the people, he retains a perpetual obligation to bless the people whenever he is asked to. (This is Rashi’s opinion, Tosfos disagrees, see Sotah 38a). This perpetual obligation to bless the people is similar to the perpetual obligation to constantly remember the Shabbos. That is why the form amor is used, similar to the use of the form zachor. The Rav also explained the second statement of Rashi about the full form of the word amor. Prior to blessing the people, the priests recite a blessing that Hashem sanctified them and commanded them to bless the people with love, b’ahavah. It would appear from the text of this blessing that the true fulfillment of the biblical obligation to bless the people requires that they do it with (or through) love. I would suggest that this echoes a similar idea of the Rav in which he interprets the letter beis in the word ba’yom in the verse “Ki ba’yom ha’zeh yechaper Aleichem” (Vayikra 16:30). Ba’yom does not mean on the day of Yom Kippur. Rather it indicates that by complying with and experiencing the itzumo shel Yom Hakippurim through an attitude of contrition, regret and repentance, the day of Yom Kippur will be the vehicle through which you will attain atonement. Similarly, if the priest can be moved though a feeling of love for his fellow Jews, to bless them with a clear and joyful mindset and without reservation, Hashem will ultimately concur with and confer those blessings on His chosen people.

Rapps Continued from p.23 Lustiger.) The Shulchan Aruch notes that a priest who is in mourning for one of the seven close relatives does not bless the people during the Shiva period. The Rama extends this and says that a priest who has lost a parent should not duchen for the full year extended period of mourning. (See Orach Chaim 128:43, and see paragraph 44 regarding the requirement that the priest must be b’simchah, in a joyous mood, to participate in Bircas Kohanim.) Had Bircas Kohanim been a mitzvah of simple recitation of some text, it should have been treated the same as tefillah and Keriyas Shema, which are mitzvos that the mourner must fulfill despite his depressed frame of mind. Apparently the requirement to perform Bircas Kohanim with love prevents the kohen mourner from going up to bless the people. The Rama (ibid) rules that in the diaspora, the kohanim do not perform Bircas Kohanim daily because they are preoccupied with thoughts of daily survival and the need to earn a living, [which precludes them from fulfilling their obligation with its proper intent]. We do not find that similar pre-occupation removes the obligation to recite Keriyas Shema or to pray on a daily basis. The word amor teaches that there is a biblical obligation to perform this mitzvah, b’ahavah, which is different than other mitzvos. The fulfillment of b’ahavah requires the priests to bless the people with the

proper intent and with a full heart, and not to bless them in a hasty or perfunctory manner or in a bewildered mood. This precludes Bircas Kohanim on a daily basis in the diaspora. However on festivals that are associated with joy and simchah, the obligation to bless the people applies in the diaspora as well. The Rama notes that the blessing should be done in Mussaf, in closest proximity to the end of the service so as to connect it with the joy and simchah of the holiday felt by the people (perhaps in connection with the se’udas Yom Tov after tefillas Mussaf). In summary, the perpetual obligation to bless the people indicated by amor (similar to zachor) is connected to the obligation to bless them b’ahavah. Amor teaches that the kohen must always be ready to bless the people based on this perpetual obligation, just like the Jew must always think of Shabbos. Amor also teaches that it must be done through ahavah, that this perpetual obligation can only be fulfilled when the kohen is of a clear frame of mind.

Survey Reveals Israeli Hedge Funds Outperforming Foreign Funds TEL AVIV – An annual survey released today by Tzur Management reveals a 33 percent growth in assets for the Israel Hedge Fund industry as compared to just two years prior. According to the survey, Hedge Fund managers in Israel are currently managing $2.7 billion. The survey, which launched in 2012, now encompasses 89 fund managers, a 50 percent increase since its launch. In 2013 alone, 30 new funds were launched in Israel and the number of funds is projected to continue to rise over the coming years. The survey’s authors also announced the creation of a new index called the Tzur Capital Management Index of Israeli Hedge Funds (TCMI) which displayed that Israel outperformed the global hedge fund industry in both 2012 and 2013 with average returns of 13 and 17 percent respectively. The Israel-focused hedge fund market has also outperformed the TA25 Index over each of the past three years. Yitz Raab, Tzur Management’s CEO and founder, said, “When considering the impressive performance of Israeli hedge funds in recent years, it’s no surprise that we’re witnessing significant growth of both assets under management and the number of Israel based funds.” Raab also noted a level of healthy diversity among the investor base of

these funds, with new investments being seen across all investor categories – private, institutional, Israeli and foreign. “This is a trend that demonstrates increasing confidence in Israeli managers and bodes well for the future,” he said. While the study shows that Israeli hedge fund managers employ a wide range of strategies, Quantitative strategies which benefit from Israel’s strengths in high tech and academia have become the preferred approach by 42 percent of the funds in Israel. Yet the survey also found that the Quantitative funds were, on the whole, smaller, accounting for only 26 percent of the assets currently under management as opposed to 46 percent being held by Equity long/ short funds. The Israeli hedge fund market also continues to look beyond Israeli shores for their investment opportunities, proving local managers’ success investing globally. The survey showed that the majority of managers have no investments in the Israeli markets and about 60 percent of total industry assets are invested outside of Israel. “The data covered in our survey point to promising trend towards growth of the hedge fund industry. We are certainly looking forward to witnessing the continued success of Israeli funds,” Raab said.

Montefiore Reports To Parliament On The Damascus Affair Probably the most famous Anglo-Jew of the 19th century, the much-beloved Moses Montefiore (17841885) was scrupulously observant of his faith and used his personal standing to further the cause of oppressed Jews everywhere. He acquired land in Eretz Yisrael to enable Jews to become self-supporting through agriculture; established the Yemin Moshe quarter – and the famous windmill named for him; and launched modern Jerusalem by building Mishkenot Shaananim, the first modern Jewish housing project outside the walls of the Old City. In this September 11, 1840 letter from Alexandria, Egypt (the full text is reproduced below) – likely carried by special diplomatic messenger from Egypt to London – Montefiore writes to J.A. Smith, a member of the British Parliament, on the successful outcome of his “Mission sent out to relieve the unfortunate and persecuted Jews at Damascus.” He declares that “Jews should have the same protection as other

and recognition of their innocence. Later in Constantinople, Montefiore persuaded the Sultan to issue a firman (edict) intended to halt the spread of blood libel accusations in the Ottoman Empire. He later convinced Catholic authorities to remove the epitaph from a Damascus grave identifying the site as the burial place of the Christian monk “murdered by the Hebrews on Feb. 5, 1840.” Upon his return to London, Montefiore was given a hero’s welcome, including a big ceremony and special synagogue services and, when he met with Queen Victoria to present her with the firman, she honored him by permitting him to add the Lion of Judah holding a banner bearing the word “Jerusalem” to his coat of arms.

subjects” and thanks the British parliamentarian for his actions on behalf of the Jews in the East. The Damascus Affair (1840) drew wide international attention as accusations of ritual murder were brought against members of the Jewish community of Damascus when eight notable Jews, falsely accused of murdering a Christian monk, were imprisoned, tortured, and murdered, and the Muslim populace of Damascus fell upon the Jewish synagogue in the suburb of Jobar, pillaged it, and destroyed the scrolls of the Law. Montefiore, in his first of many missions as a shtadlan, led a delegation to Mohammed Ali, the ruler of Syria and Egypt. His now legendary successful negotiations in Alexandria (August 4-28) secured the unconditional release of the remaining prisoners

Singer Continued from p.28 In a groundbreaking effort, the American Jewish community of some 15,000 protested on behalf of its Syrian brethren, and the affair launched modern Jewish politics on an international scale. In persuading President Martin Van Buren to file an official protest, Jews were the first among new ethnic immigrants to the U.S. to attempt to sway the government to act on behalf of their co-religionists abroad. Following this major blood libel, Jews considered how to organize for the protection of the Jewish reputation worldwide, and this new sense of Jewish solidarity gave rise to a host of new institutions and organizations dedicated to serving the Jewish community and protecting Jewish life. John Abel Smith (1802–1871), a strong supporter of Montefiore’s mission in the Damascus Affair, was a British MP (1830-59, 1863-68) who won broad renown as a friend of religious toleration, leading the successful campaign to allow Jews to sit in parliament (1858). In particular, he presented Lionel de Rothschild to the House of Commons and successfully argued that Rothschild, as a Jew, be permitted to take the oath on the Old Testament only. Text Of Letter Alexandria, 11th September 1840 My Dear Sir: Believing that you will be pleased to hear from myself what success that has

attended the Mission sent out to relieve the unfortunate and persecuted Jews at Damascus, I have much pleasure in informing you that although a new trial has been decreed, yet His Highness the Viceroy has granted – An Order for the unconditional discharge of the nine unhappy persons confined at Damascus on the accusation of being privy to the murder of Father Thomas. Permission for such of the Jews as had fled from the dread of persecution and torture to return to their homes unmolested. A general declaration that the Jews should have the same protection as other subjects. More has not yet been obtained owing to the turn political affairs took immediately after our arrival and the disturbed state of Syria, and the opposition of the French authorities to any Enquiry have hitherto prevented my proceeding to Damascus to add to the irrefutable proof I have already collected of the entire innocence of my troubled co-religionists of the infamous charges made against them. I cannot however close this letter without assuring you that the influence of the great meeting which you took so active and so effective a part has already had its effect upon the condition of the Jews in the East which will I hope afford you satisfaction as it gives me pleasure to record it. I am my dear Sir, Yours very truly [signed] Moses Montefiore To J.A. Smith, Esq. M.P. London

A TASTE OF LOMDUS RABBI RAPHAEL FUCHS

uses the same terminology as the Rashba: erasing Hashem’s name in preparing the concoction for the sotah is “removing doubt and preventing issur.” The Rama explains this as follows: According to some, the prohibition of erasing Hashem’s name only applies when it is done in a destructive manner. According to this view, one may erase Hashem’s name in order to fix it, for this is not destructive. Erasing Hashem’s name in order to restore peace between a man and his wife, or to save the world, is constructive. Therefore, under these circumstances, erasing Hashem’s name does not even fall under the prohibition. But one may never transgress any other prohibition, even if it will restore peace between a man and his wife. Thus one may not break an oath in order to restore shalom. In a different teshuvah (11), however, the Rama writes that we may apply the same logic to transgress the aveirah of motzi shem ra in order to restore peace between two communities. In other words, one may commit the aveirah of motzi shem ra if it will result in restoring shalom. He explains that one may do so because erasing Hashem’s name is a greater aveirah than motzi shem ra – and since one may erase Hashem’s name for the sake of shalom, one can surely transgress the aveirah of motzi shem ra. This seemingly contradicts what the Rama wrote in explaining the position of Rav Hai Gaon. Perhaps the Rama does not rule in accordance with Rav Hai Gaon. Additionally, I would add that the Gemara in Chullin 141a applies this logic in order to give preference to performing one assei over another. The Gemara says that since we see that the Torah allows Hashem’s name to be erased for the sake of restoring shalom between a man and his wife, the assei of a metzora should outweigh the assei of shiluach hakan – since the performance of the metzora’s assei will constitute shalom bayis. This Gemara indicates that the reason why the Torah allowed Hashem’s name to be erased is not because the erasing is constructive; rather, it is because restoring shalom between a man and his wife is a greater mitzvah than other mitzvos.

May One Transgress To Restore Shalom Bayis? In this week’s parshah, the Torah discusses the halachos of a sotah, which includes grinding a scroll containing the parshah of the sotah, mixing it with water, and giving the concoction to the sotah to drink. Although Hashem’s name is included in the parshah, and generally there is an issur de’oraisa to erase Hashem’s name, the Torah explicitly permits it in this case. The Gemara says that Hashem allows His name to be erased for the sake of peace between a man and his wife. The Gemara in Makkos 11a and Sukkah 53b relates that when Dovid HaMelech began to lay the foundation for the Beis HaMikdash, water from underground began to flood the world. Dovid HaMelech thought throwing a plank with Hashem’s name into the water might cause the waters to subside, but he wasn’t sure whether he was allowed to cause Hashem’s name to be erased. Achitofel then made the following kal vachomer: If, for the sake of peace between a man and his wife, Hashem allows His name to be erased, then surely He would allow his name to be erased for the sake of saving the entire world. Dovid HaMelech accepted the argument, carried out his idea, and the waters subsided. Mefarshim ask whether it is permitted to transgress other prohibitions in order to restore peace between a man and his wife. For example, the Rashba (Teshuvos 1:854) discussess whether someone who swore that he would divorce his wife must keep his oath. Perhaps he may break it in order to restore peace between himself and his wife – just like the Torah permits Hashem’s name to be erased for the sake of shalom bayis. The Rashba concludes, however, that erasing Hashem’s name when judging a sotah is the only exception to the rule. And the reason for this exception is because the Torah is “removing doubt and preventing issur.” The Rama (Teshuvos, siman 100, os 10) quotes Rav Hai Gaon, who maintains that one may only erase Hashem’s name to 1) judge a sotah and 2) save the world.

Seeking Newcomers, Winnipeg’s Jewish Community Doesn’t Get What It Expected By Uriel Heilman When the leaders of Winnipeg’s Jewish federation sat down 13 years ago to try to figure out a way to reverse the community’s decline, they came up with a novel idea: recruit Jews from overseas. The idea was pretty straightforward. Capitalizing on the pro-immigration policies of their home province of Manitoba, the Winnipeg federation would seek out faraway Jews – mainly from troubled countries in South America – and bring them to the snow-swept plains of central Canada. The timing coincided with the economic crisis in Argentina, and after a recruiting trip by federation leaders to Buenos Aires in 2001, dozens of Argentine Jewish families arrived. But very quickly, following an initial infusion of South Americans, the main source for Jewish newcomers unexpectedly became Israel, even though the federation wasn’t doing any recruiting of or marketing to Israelis. In fact, since the inception of the federation’s GrowWinnipeg program in October 2001, some 80 percent of the 4,400 or so newcomers have come from Israel, most with roots in the former Soviet Union. In 2013, more than 300 of the 338 new Jewish immigrants came from Israel. While bolstering the Jewish community’s raw numbers, the influx has not resolved worries about the community’s future. On the contrary, some critics say the focus on bringing in immigrants, most of whom are secular Russian Israelis, has failed to halt the exodus of Jews from Winnipeg and done little to shore up troubled Jewish institutions. “The recent influx of Jewish families have been Russian Israelis who seem to be less actively involved in synagogue life and are not involved in Jewish community life to any extent at all,” said Ian Staniloff, executive director of Congregation Shaarey Zedek, the largest synagogue in Winnipeg. “We offer free membership to new immigrant families, but they

seem not to be as interested in joining or pursuing a Jewish lifestyle.” Membership in the Conservative synagogue, which is located on Winnipeg’s south side, has declined 5 to 10 percent in the last five to 10 years; only two or three Russian-Israeli families have joined, according to Staniloff. Federation officials argue that GrowWinnipeg has been a success and that the Winnipeg Jewish population has risen to 16,000 from about 13,000 before the program’s launch. “Had the trajectory continued going south, we would have lost our critical mass and the ability to fund our institutions,” said Bob Freedman, CEO of the Jewish Federation of Winnipeg. “It’s worked and given the community a real flavor in terms of language and customs. All in all, the program was a success. This community is feeling really good about itself, which we weren’t 20 years ago.” Faye Rosenberg-Cohen, the coordinator of GrowWinnipeg and the federation’s director of planning and community engagement, says the program has helped fuel a “huge revitalization in terms of our institutions and community activities.” But critics question the accuracy of the federation’s population statistics, noting the absence of scientific surveys to substantiate the numbers. Data from Canada’s National Household Survey

actually show a decline of Winnipeg Jews between 2001 and 2011. The 2011 survey counted 10,735 Winnipeg Jews by religion and 12,000 Jews by ethnic origin, down from 12,045 and 14,440, respectively. Even if the federation’s statistics are accurate, they suggest that the population of veteran Jewish Winnipegers has continued to slide because the number of newcomers is larger than the total increase in Jewish population cited. At the community’s only day school, the Gray Academy of Jewish Education, the student body has grown to 600 from 485 in 2001, and about 20 percent of the students are from Russian-Israeli families.

Total Contentment “On the twelfth day the leader of Shevet Naftali, Achira son of Einan… – Bamidbar 7:78 The Ohr HaChaim notes that the Tribe of Naftali was blessed by Moshe to be “satiated with favor” (Devarim 33:23), meaning they were satisfied with their share. They had an eiyin tovah (lit., a good eye) and were benevolent concerning that which they received from Hashem. Similarly, the name of Achira, their leader, implied that they did not look at anyone else’s allotment nor did they desire or envy it. In fact, they felt that others had received less than they had. R’ Chaim Volozhiner cites our sages who tell us that by nature, no matter how much one has he is desirous of having more. But an individual must maintain the proper perspective on financial gains and wealth, not to desire more than he has. That is the intent of the Mishnah (Avos 4:1), “Who is rich? One who is content with his lot.” Often when a person becomes wealthy he is initially very happy, but after some time elapses it becomes ordinary, and he is pained by what he believes he is lacking. The Mishnah’s expression in the present tense reminds us that it is the individual who remains in a constant state of contentment who can be considered rich. The Mishnah uses the word chelko to indicate his lot or portion, implying it is only a slice or a fraction of what he actually desires. The Chasam Sofer focuses on the use of the word chelko in the Mishnah and explains the person can be content with what he has – even if it is only a small amount – if he will regard it as merely a portion of the berachah Hashem has for him. Emunah and bitachon prescribe the confidence that the remainder of the blessing is being guarded for him, to be allocated on a daily basis. It is a source of joy for the individual because he knows Hashem will provide him with his every need, and whether the blessing is bountiful or sparse, he is happy because he knows the blessing is customized for him. When a person realizes he doesn’t have to have it all, and even his small allotment is reason to thank and praise Hashem, then he is samei’ach b’chelko. R’ Chaim Volozhiner observes that the middah of being content with one’s lot is only applicable to material possessions. An individual can never be satisfied with his spiritual share, because he must be constantly aspiring to gain spiritual worth and to grow in his ruchniyus. One of the earlier sages states that, in fact, the innate desire to have more refers to Torah, i.e. that the person is not happy

Summary of our response up to this point: The requirement of having a minimum of 10 men present for synagogue services and other mitzvot that are davar shebi’kedushah (matters of sanctity) is derived through the hermeneutic principle of gezerah shavah (verbal analogy). If the same word or phrase appears in two separate verses in the Torah, and a certain halacha is explicitly stated regarding one of them, we may infer that the same halacha applies in the second case as well. Leviticus 22:32 – which discusses sanctifying G-d’s name in public – uses the word “betoch” and Numbers 16:21 – which discusses G-d’s command to separate from Korach and his group – uses the word “mitoch.” The latter verse refers to a congregation of at least 10 people (which we know via a second gezarah shavah) and so we learn that publicly sanctifying G-d’s name requires a minyan. This gezerah shavah comes up in a Talmudic discussion (Berachot 21b) between R. Huna and R. Yehoshua b. Levi regarding someone who enters a synagogue while the congregation is already in midst of davening Shemoneh Esreh. If he wishes to catch up with the congregation, R. Huna permits him to recite Kedushah by himself while R. Yehoshua rules that it can be said only with a quorum of 10. ***** Let us examine the requirement of saying HaGomel. The Mechaber (Orach Chayim 219:1, essentially citing the Talmud, Berachot 54b) writes as follows: Four events required offering thanksgiving to G-d: 1) successfully crossing the sea, 2) traveling through the wilderness and reaching habitation, 3) recovering from an illness, and 4) being released from jail. In order to more easily remember these four events, the Mechaber offers the following as a mnemonic: “V’chol ha’chayim yoduchah selah – And all who live will acknowledge You, Selah,” taken from the Modim prayer in Shemoneh Esreh. Each one of the letters of “chayim” stands for one of the four events. Chet stands for choleh – an ill person; yud stands for yisurin – suffering (in prison), yud stands for yam – the sea, and mem stands for midbar – desert. As we will see later, the Mechaber’s choice of mnemonic is very relevant to how one satisfies the requirement to offer thanksgiving. The Mechaber (219:2) asks: “And what does one say [when offering thanks]?” He answers: “‘Baruch Ata Hashem, Elokeinu Melech ha’olam, ha’gomel l’chayavim tovot, she’gemalani kol tov – Blessed are You, Hashem, our G-d, King of the universe, Who bestows kindness upon the guilty, Who has bestowed every goodly kindness upon me.’ Those who hear respond, ‘[Amen!] Mi she’gemal’chah kol tov, yigmal’chah kol tov, selah – May He who has bestowed goodness upon you continue to bestow every goodly kindness upon you, Selah.’” The Mechaber (219:3) then writes: “It is necessary to recite this blessing before a quorum of 10, two of whom are rabbis [i.e., scholars], as the verse (Psalms 107:32) states: ‘Viy’romemu’hu b’k’hal am u’v’moshav zekeinim ye-haleluhu – Let them exalt Him in the as-

sembly of people, and praise Him in the session of the elders.’ And if there are no sages present, one should not refrain from saying the blessing. “The custom developed to recite the blessing after Keriat haTorah because [at that time] 10 are assembled. However, if someone said the blessing with less than 10 present, there are those (Tur O.C., ad loc.) who opine that his obligation has been fulfilled, while others (Rabbenu Yonah) are of the view that he has not discharged his obligation. It is [therefore] better that he repeat the blessing before a quorum of 10, but without mentioning the Holy Name – Shem u’Malchut.” (To be continued)

***** Question: In your Q&A columns in early April, you write the following which seems to be incorrect. “The Kesef Mishneh explains,

with his achievements in learning Torah and feels he is lacking. Unfortunately, however, the longing and hunger for more was transferred to financial and physical aspirations. We learn in Koheles (6:7), “His wants are never satisfied.” The Ibn Ezra explains that the soul of the person can only be sated with Torah, mitzvos and maasim tovim. True happiness and fulfillment is connected to the neshamah and its enjoyment is derived only with attention to the mitzvos of the Torah. R’ Baruch Ber expounds the Mishnah very differently and says the rich person is one who is happy with the Torah of Hashem. He knows how to rejoice in the acquisition of the Chumash he has learned, the daf he has mastered, and the laws of Shulchan Aruch he has reviewed. That is true happiness and riches. A ger tzedek who had become a learned talmid chacham once recounted the circumstances that had motivated him to embrace Judaism. He related that growing up in Europe he had been extremely troubled and disturbed by the persecution and suffering of the Jewish people during the Holocaust. He had come to Eretz Yisrael to serve the Jewish people, in the hope of thereby attaining some form of atonement. He found his calling helping children who were deaf. He noticed one Jewish woman interacting with her child in a most unusual way, and after talking with her, his life was changed forever. This mother traveled a great distance every morning in order to visit her child, who was profoundly deaf and could not communicate orally. Each morning she would warmly embrace her child, and then wrap him in a tallis katan. With tears in her eyes she would lovingly recite the Shema, Torah tzivah lanu Moshe and other small morning prayers to her child. The ger tzedek mused, “Every morning I stood in amazement watching these proceedings. It seemed strange and somewhat mystical, and I wondered to myself why she chose to do that.” One day he mustered up his courage and said to the woman. “Your son doesn’t hear or understand anything that you’re saying. Why do you continue to recite the prayers every day?” She answered, “It is true that his physical body doesn’t hear and understand, but his spiritual soul – his neshamah – absorbs every word I say. I am speaking to that holy neshamah. The neshamah appreciates the tefillos and has great joy from every single word I utter.” The ger tzedek concluded, “I was very moved by the woman’s words and immediately resolved to check out Judaism and Torah. I wanted to learn more about this unique connection between the body and soul. That was the turning point in my life.” Indeed , the Sefer Chachmas Koheles tells us that it is our task to satisfy the will of the soul. That is the reason for our creation, and that is our fuhowever, that there is a difference between the two cases. On Shemini Atzeret we would be contradicting ourselves if in the very same Kiddush we said both ‘yom Shemini Atzeret hachag hazeh’…” First, where is this Kesef Mishneh? Second, I doubt that Rav Yosef Karo said “yom Shemini Atzeret hachag hazeh” since in his Mechaber (668:1) he uses the following wording: “yom Shemini Chag HaAtzeret hazeh.” I believe this wording is universal among Sefaradim. Many Ashkenazim use it as well, though adding a heh: HaShemini. Yisrael Levi (Via E-Mail) Answer: The Kesef Mishneh is found in Hilchot

Book Series Introduces English Speakers To New Learning Methodology By Professor Alan Jotkowitz In the last forty years, we have witnessed a revolution in the study of Tanach among the National-Religious sector in Israel. This revolution has been centered around Yeshivat Har Etzion in Gush Etzion. From the beginning serious study of Tanach was part of the Yeshiva’s curriculum as taught by faculty members Rabbi Mordechai Breur, innovator of the “two concept approach” to deal with apparent contradictions in Tanach, and Rabbi Yoel Ben Nun. The study of Tanach has now become a central part of the curriculum in many yeshivas, the annual Yemei Iyun in Tanach which attract thousands to the grounds of the Herzog College, the many publications and classes dedicated to its study all testify to this renaissance in the learning of Tanach. The return of the Jewish People to its ancient homeland has also certainly had an effect as one can now study a chapter, for example, dealing with the battle between David and Goliath and a few hours later actually walk in their footsteps – an opportunity that, for thousands of years, was only the stuff of dreams and wishful prayer. Parallel to this renewed emphasis on the study of Tanach, a new methodology was also developed centered on learning the “simple meaning” of the text but also incorporating the disciplines of literary theory, geography, archeology and history in order to better understand the text. We have also witnessed, particularly in the last decade, the beginning of a conversation between this new approach and the academic world primarily on the use of literary approaches in the understanding of the text. The methodology has been criticized for its lack of fealty to the traditional medieval commentators and the midrashic tradition, and for the relative ease in which it accepts that our spiritual ancestors might have committed grave sins (e.g., King David). But, many adherents emphasize, practitioners of this new

methodology are deeply committed to the fundamental principle of Torah min Shamayim and owe allegiance to the traditional medieval commentators and the midrashic tradition. In explaining this approach Rabbi Amnon Bazak, a second generation student of this new methodology, is fond of quoting Rashbam’s description of his conversation with his grandfather, Rashi, who admitted that there was a need to continue searching for the “simple interpretations that arise anew every day.” Maggid Publishers has recently made this new and intellectually stimulating approach to the study of the Tanach available in English through the publication of a series of books called Torah MiEtzion: New Readings in Tanach. It has collected the best of essays originally published on the Virtual Bet Midrash of Yeshivat Har Etzion by teachers of the new methodology and so far has published volumes on Bereshit, Shemot, Vayikra and Devarim. The readers of these volumes will gain a renewed appreciation of the eternal messages of familiar stories, the heroic behavior of our ancestors and the sophisticated literary style in which they are presented. An implicit message of these volumes is that the word of God is presented to man in many different guises and on many different levels and the true student of Tanach should use all of his or her intellectual capacities to try to decipher these messages. If the study of Talmud requires the use of sophisticated methods of analysis, shouldn’t also the direct word of God, the Tanach, require similar intellectual and creative efforts? Learning Tanach using these methodologies can also help one gain an appreciation of the relevance of its eternal message to our times. Professor Alan Jotkowitz is director of the Jakobovits Center for Jewish Medical Ethics and associate director for Academic Affairs Medical School for International Health and Medicine, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev and a Senior Physician at Soroka University Medical Center both in Beer Sheva, Israel.

BUSINESS IN HALACHA RABBI MEIR ORLIAN

Restoring the Primacy of Choshen Mishpat

Dent Aryeh was cruising down the boulevard, following an old blue car. Traffic was moving at a brisk clip when the light ahead of them quickly turned yellow and then red. Aryeh applied the brakes firmly, but not fast enough. He bumped gently into the blue car ahead of him. The driver came out and signaled to Aryeh to pull over after the light turned green. The two cars pulled over to the side of the road. Aryeh recognized the other driver as Zvi, someone from the other side of the neighborhood. The two men assessed the damage. There was a small dent in the back of the blue car. Not a big deal, but a dent nonetheless. “Sorry about the dent,� Aryeh said. “The light turned red a little to fast to stop in time.� “Well, you should have kept a larger trailing distance,� said Zvi. “You’ll have to pay for the damage. I assume you have insurance?� “Of course,� said Aryeh. “But I have a fairly high deductable. For a small dent like this, it’s not worth involving the insurance.� Aryeh looked at the car. It had seen better days, and the new dent joined three other dents that had never been fixed. “Where do you plan to fix the dent?� asked Aryeh. “I know a body shop that does excellent work for a reasonable price.� “I’m not sure I’m going to bother fixing the dent,� said Zvi. “As you can see, the car has other dents. I’ve got other uses for the money.� “If you’re not going to repair the car,� said Aryeh, “what exactly am I paying for?!� “You owe me the money for the repair, regardless,� said Zvi. “You ruined my car. What I choose to do with the money is my issue!� “I didn’t exactly ruin your car,� said Aryeh. “As you said, the car has other dents. One more small dent is not going to make a difference to the value of the car. If you want to fix it, that’s one thing. But if you’re not fixing it anyway, I didn’t cause you any real monetary damage.� “You still owe me the full value of the repair as a cash payment,� said Zvi. “Not if there’s no intent to repair and negligible depreciation,� insisted Aryeh. “Maybe a small something, but no more!� “I have no doubt you should pay the full value of the repair,� replied Zvi, “but I’m willing to ask Rabbi Dayan how much you owe.� The two came before Rabbi Dayan. “Aryeh dented my car slightly,� said Zvi. “Does he owe the full value of the repair even if I don’t plan on repairing it?�

“One who damages has to pay the differential between the initial value of the item and its value after the damage,� said Rabbi Dayan. “Thus, in principle, we should evaluate the depreciation of the car.� (C.M. 387:1; 403:1) “Then there would be almost no obligation of damage here,� said Aryeh. “The little dent has negligible impact on the value of the car!� “It would seem that way,� said Rabbi Dayan. “However, the Shach [C.M. 387:1; 95:18] writes that this applies to something that cannot be repaired. However, when the item can be repaired the one who damaged has to pay the repair; we do not look at the depreciation.� “That’s exactly the point, though!� exclaimed Aryeh. “Zvi does not intend to repair the dent. He just wants the money!� “That might be significant according to the Shach, who seems to maintain that the primary obligation is to restore the initial state,� acknowledged Rabbi Dayan. “Presumably, he would also assess the cost of repair at the current time. However, the Chazon Ish [B.K. 6:3] takes this idea a step further. He maintains the cost of repair is established as the monetary obligation for the damage. According to him, the repair cost is assessed based on the time of damage, since this is the monetary obligation. As such, even if the damaged party has no interest in fixing the damaged item, he still owes the cost of fixing at the time of damage.� (See Dvar Chok U’mishpat, Rav Chanoch Sanhedrai, p. 289.) “Thus, Aryeh has to pay the value of the repair,� concluded Rabbi Dayan, “whether Zvi chooses to repair the dent or not.� Rabbi Meir Orlian is a faculty member of the Business Halacha Institute, headed by HaRav Chaim Kohn, a noted dayan.

Singles A Dating Primerr Rosie Einhorn, LCSW Sherry Zimmerman, ESQ A SINGLE’S STRATEGY FOR MARRIAGE GE

When It’s More Than Cold Feet How can a dater tell the difference between cold feet (anxiety about the big step they’re about to take in their relationship) and a legitimate concern about whether the person they are dating is right for them? A dater who has a feeling that something’s “just not right” needs to explore what’s behind that uncertainty and not dismiss it as mere “jitters.” If a couple has conflicting goals, values, or worldviews, the foundation of their relationship will be shaky. If attraction, connection, trust, affection, comfort, or admiration are missing, they may be moving forward too quickly, before the relationship is fully developed, or they just may not be right for each other. Discussing these issues with each other can help them know which is the case. Many people develop post-engagement misgivings because they discover that their values and what they want out of life are very different, and hard to reconcile. Why did they decide to get married before exploring these subjects? Because they thought that since they have a good time together and care about each other, everything will work out. Or, when they were dating, they sensed the differences, but avoided addressing them because they Psychotherapists Rosie Einhorn, L.C.S.W., and Sherry Zimmerman, J.D., M.Sc., are the authors of the new book “Dating Smart – Navigating the Path to Marriage” (Menucha Publishers), now available in bookstores and at targum.com.

Dear IY”H: The most recent discussion among my friends and me regarding dating and marriage revolved around whether the boy should call the girl before the first date. If not, when should the boy start to call the girl and stop relying on the shadchan to be the intermediary? In my view, it is very childish for a guy to not make the call. If you are old enough to date for the purpose of finding your bashert, you are old enough to pick up the phone. I understand that it can be a bit nerve-wracking and perhaps awkward, but this is part of the process. With practice and time, it will get easier. Having a list of topics to discuss could definitely help during the inevitably awkward silences. And the worst-case scenario is that if the conversation is somewhat awkward, there’s no harm done. It is to be expected. It is all part of the game, so to speak. Additionally, it will certainly save the shadchan a lot of time and headaches. Whether it’s a professional or amateur shadchan, why burden the shadchan with all this extra work if arranging the date can be handled by the young couple in a much shorter time period and more efficient way? Also, a professional shadchan may be busy working with quite a few cou-

were afraid if they did the relationship would break up. It was inevitable that these issues would come up at some point, and they have come up now. Other people see a different side of their fiancée after they became engaged. They find out that he isn’t independent of his parents – he may defer to them for most decisions, or feel compelled to please them, or disregard his kallah’s feelings and wishes because his parents come first. Or, they find out that the person they plan on marrying has a problem with drugs, alcohol, gambling, Internet use, even if they are not sure it is an addiction. Sometimes, they observe behaviors or personality traits that their kallah or chasan was able to hide when they were dating. This can include anger management issues, excessive criticism, jealousy, attempts to control by trying to limit contact with friends and family and insisting things his way without flexibility or compromise; or the beginnings of physical or emotional abuse. And, there are people who learn that the person they plan on marrying isn’t who they said they were – a “fulltime learner” who isn’t learning fulltime, or someone lied about their job, family, finances, or anything else that has an effect on the life the couple plans to have together. Instead of swallowing these concerns and remaining anxious and uncertain, a prospective bride or groom has to address them immediately. The first step is speaking with a trusted advisor to help clarify what they have really observed, if they have evaluated the situation correctly, and how it will impact them and their future marriage. The next step is to discuss these concerns with the their fiancée, even though this will be difficult and uncomfortable. Here, too, having a third party present, such as advisor with experience in these matters, or a couple’s therapist, can help the couple address the issue productively. They need to know if this is something they can resolve together or if it will cause serious problems down the road because they can’t. Red flags, like not feeling safe in the relationship, or sensing that mutual respect is missing, are other issues that must also be addressed in this manner. Concerns that are raised during engagement may either be due to “cold feet” or may indicate a serious problem that has to be addressed before the couple stands under the chuppah. They can’t be

ples at the same time. Imagine all the time that can be saved if the singles arranged the date’s details. Shadchanim can use that precious time to help set up more couples. Some feel that the first call is very awkward and pointless for the guy and girl, and that it often doesn’t really help move the dating process forward – especially at the initial stages. It can even potentially hinder the process. People very often come across completely different over the phone than the way they do in a natural setting. This can cause the guy and/or girl to begin the first date with a pessimistic attitude, based on a phone conversation that might have been an inaccurate impression of who he or she truly is. On the flip side, the guy or girl might get overexcited about how the phone call went only to be disappointed during the date and not give it a fair chance to succeed. Thanks for listening!

pushed off until after the marriage. Couples who deal with them now may discover they can resolve the issue (either together or with professional help) and go on to have a healthy marriage, or they will realize they can’t and decide it’s a better idea not to move forward.

Sanctified For Now And Thereafter ‘In Front of the Sun or Behind It?’ (Rosh Hashana 23b) The Mishnah on this daf is central to any discussion of the role of beis din and its power to set and sanctify a new month. It describes at length how beis din would inaugurate the new month based on the testimony of witnesses who sighted the moon. Sadly, today, we no longer have the Beis Hamikdash and we no longer have a beis din authorized to receive testimony to declare a new month. Instead, we make use of a fixed calendar based on a variety of halachic principles (see Rambam, Hilchos Kiddush HaChodesh chapter 6-8 and Tur O.C. 427-428). Based on the principles known by our Sages, we can predict when the new moons will appear. A Fixed Calendar When did this calendar first come into use? The Gemara does not explicitly tell us. The Rashba (Teshuvos 4:254) writes: “We have a tradition that this system was instituted by Hillel, the son of Rabbeinu HaKodesh (Rebbe Yehuda HaNassi). However, I know of no source for this tradition.” The earliest source we can find in which Hillel is attributed with developing the calendar, is the writings of R’ Avraham ben R’ Chiya HaNassi, one of the early Rishonim, who is known mostly for his sefarMeoros Hadaf Hayomi Newsletters are published by the Sochachover Kollel of Bnei Brak, led by Rabbi Chaim Dovid Kovalsky.

im on astronomy. In one of his works, Sefer Ha’Ibbur (3:7), he cites Rav Hai Gaon, who writes that the Jewish calendar was developed by Hillel in the year 4119 (1,655 years ago). The Ramban (Sefer HaZechus on Gittin, 36a) writes the same. He explains that when the Sanhedrin in Eretz Yisrael was disbanded and there were no longer any judges authorized to inaugurate new months based on the testimony of witnesses, Hillel devised a calendar which could be used by all future generations until the Sanhedrin would be restored. The Rambam (Hilchos Kiddush HaChodesh 5:3) writes that this coincided with the end of the era of Abaye and Rava (who passed away in the years 4098 and 4113, according to the Iggeres Rav Sherira Gaon). Indeed, we find in the Gemara that the new month was still inaugurated based on the testimony of witnesses during the time of Abaye and Rava. For example, Rosh Hashana 21a reports that one year Rava was uncertain on which day to keep Yom Kippur. Also, Taanis 29b states that Tisha B’Av occurred on erev Shabbos during the time of Abaye (which is impossible under Hillel’s calendar – see Or Samei’ach on the Rambam, ibid). On Whose Authority From where does Hillel’s calendar derive its authority? A calendar is not a beis din. On what authority does it declare that such and such a day should be the first of the month? The Rambam (Hilchos Kiddush HaChodesh 5:2) maintains that Hashem entrusted Moshe Rabbeinu with two different ways of inaugurating the new months: 1) via testimony when the Sanhedrin was active and 2) via a practical system after the Sanhedrin was disbanded. Hillel’s calendar is of the second method. The Ramban, however, argues that Moshe was told only to inaugurate the new month via testimony before beis din. According to the Ramban, beis din

in the time of Hillel ruled that Hillel’s calendar is binding on all future generations until the Sanhedrin would be reinstated. It had this authority since beis din, when necessary, is allowed to determine the day of Rosh Chodesh for a certain month long before that month arrives. The Principles Hillel’s calendar was based on a number of halachic principles including “molad zakein – do not consider a previous appearance of the moon.” According to this principle, if the moon appears in the afternoon, that day is not Rosh Chodesh, but rather the day after. Were these principles given to Moshe Rabbeinu on Har Sinai with the specific instruction that they be incorporated into a calendar when the Sanhedrin would be disbanded? Or perhaps Moshe Rabbeinu was simply given general instructions to develop a calendar that would meet certain requirements (that Pesach be in the spring and so on) with the specific details left to Sages of future generations to develop as necessary. Down To All The Details The Brisker Rav maintained that even the specific details of developing the calendar were given to Moshe Rabbeinu on Har Sinai (Chiddushei Maran Riz HaLevi: Kiddush HaChodesh, Yoma, Sukka p. 8). The Chazon Ish, however, believed that Moshe Rabbeinu was only given general instructions to develop a working calendar, and the details were left to the Sages of future generations to work out (see Chazon Ish, O.C. 140: 3). Rabbenu Saadiah’s View Interestingly, Rabbenu Saadiah Gaon writes that even in the times of the Sanhedrin, beis din made use of a calendar to predict when the new moon would appear. Testimony was only used to comply with the requirement that witnesses must testify.

THIS WEEK’S LUACH (Continued from p.7) Today is Rosh Chodesh Sivan. Friday morning: Shacharis with inclusion of Ya’aleh VeYavo in the Shemoneh Esreh, half-Hallel, Kaddish Tiskabbel. We take out one Sefer Torah from the Ark. We read in Parashas Pinchas (Bamidbar 28:1-15), we call four Aliyos (Kohen, Levi, Yisrael, Yisrael). The Baal Keriah recites half-Kaddish. We return the Torah to the Aron, Ashrei, U’va LeTziyyon – we delete Lamenatze’ach. The chazzan recites half-Kaddish; all then remove their Tefillin. Musaf of Rosh Chodesh, followed by Reader’s repetition and Kaddish Tiskabbel, Aleinu, Shir Shel Yom, Borchi Nafshi and their respective Kaddish recitations (for mourners). Nusach Sefarad say Shir Shel Yom and Borchi Nafshi after half-Hallel, and before Aleinu they add Ein K’Elokeinu with Kaddish DeRabbanan. Mincha Erev Shabbos: In the Shemoneh Esreh we say Ya’aleh VeYavo, which we also add to Birkas Hamazon as well as mention of Rosh Chodesh in Beracha Acharona (Me’ein Shalosh) at all times. Kiddush Levana at first opportunity (we usually wait until Motza’ei Shabbos). From Rosh Chodesh until Isru Chag we do not say Tachanun (others extend this practice until the 12th day of Sivan). No Hazkaras Neshamos; we do say Kel Erech Appayim but at the conclusion of Kerias HaTorah we do not say Yehi Ratzon and we do say Lamenatze’ach. Motzaei Shabbos, Saturday evening, is the onset of the 3 days of Hagbala – the preparatory period before Shavuos. According to some minhagim, the same relaxation of Sefira observance that we allow on Lag BaOmer applies to the days before Shavuos as well. See Shulchan Aruch, Orach Chayyim 493, and Mishna Berura (ad. loc.), where the various minhagim are clearly delineated.

This coming Tuesday night (candle lighting 8:04 p.m. NYC. E.D.T.), the first night of Shavuos, we wait with prayers until nighttime to fulfill the “Sheva Shabbasos temimos” – the completeness of seven weeks of Sefira. Maariv of Yom Tov (some say Yotzros), the Shemoneh Esreh of Shalosh Regalim. Kiddush of Shalosh Regalim with Shehecheyanu. It is customary to have a dairy appetizer on Shavuos. The main meal should nevertheless include meat. In Birkas Hamazon at the conclusion of the seuda we add Ya’aleh VeYavo. It is customary to stay awake all night, learn Torah and say Tikkun Leil Shavuos. Wednesday morning: Shacharis of Yom Tov (some congregations add the appropriate Yotzros as found in the Machzor), Shemoneh Esreh of Shalosh Regalim, followed by whole Hallel. We then remove two Sifrei Torah from the Ark. We say the 13 Middos. We call the first Aliya (the Kohen) but before the beracha over the Torah is recited, the Baal Keriah reads Akdamos. In the first Sefer Torah we call five aliyos – we read in Parashas Yisro (Shemos 19:1-20:23) from “Bachodesh Ha’shelishi” until the end of the Parasha. We then take the second Sefer and place it on the Bimahnext to the first Sefer and recite half Kaddish. Maftir is read in the second Sefer in Parashas Pinchas (Bamidbar 28:26-31) from “U’veyom Habikkurim” until “Veniskeihem.” The haftara is in Yechezkel (1:1-28, 3:12). The chazzan chants Kah Keli followed by Ashrei, Yehallelu, LeDavid Mizmor, etc. and we return the Sifrei Torah to the Ark. Musaf: chazzan recites half Kaddish, then all say the Shalosh Regalim Shemoneh Esreh. During the chazzan’s repetition the Kohanim go up to duchan. We conclude with Ein Kelokeinu, Aleinu, Shir Shel Yom and respective Kaddish recitals. (Nusach Sefarad say Shir Shel Yom after Hallel.) Mincha: Ashrei, U’va LeTziyyon, half Kaddish, usual Shalosh Regalim Shemoneh Esreh, Kaddish Tiskabbel at con-

clusion of chazzan’s repetition followed by Aleinu, Kaddish Yasom. Wednesday eve. Second day Shavuos: Candle lighting is no earlier than 9:13 p.m. NYC E.D.T. (Rabbenu Tam 9:35 p.m. NYC E.D.T.) Maariv is the usual Tefilla of Yom Tov, Shemoneh Esreh of Shalosh Regalim followed by Kaddish Tiskabbel, Aleinu, Kaddish Yasom. We again say Shehecheyanu in the Kiddush of Yom Tov. In Birkas Hamazon at the conclusion of the seuda we include Ya’aleh VeYavo. Thursday morning: Shacharis of Yom Tov (some congregations add the appropriate Yotzros as found in the Machzor), the Shemoneh Esreh of Shalosh Regalim, followed by whole Hallel. The chazzan then recites Kaddish Tiskabbel. We read the Book of Ruth (preferably from a scroll, a klaf). [Most are accustomed not to say the blessing Al Mikra Megilla – see Shulchan Aruch HaRav and the Taz (Orach Chayyim 490, end). The Magen Avraham (ad loc.), however, rules otherwise – that one does say a beracha – but all agree that we bless only on a scroll.] We remove two Sifrei Torah from the Ark and say the 13 Middos. In the first scroll we read in Parashas Re’eh (Devarim 15:19-16:17) from “Kol Ha’bechor” until “Asher nassan lach,” and call five Aliyos. We then take the second scroll, place it on the Bimahnext to the first scroll, and recite half Kaddish. Maftir is read in the second scroll in Parashas Pinchas (Bamidbar 28:26-31) from “U’veyom Habikkurim” until “Veniskeihem.” The haftara is from Trei Asar (Chabakkuk 2:20-3:19). The Maftir recites the first two pesukim, intercalates the piyyut Yetziv Pisgam, and concludes the haftara. Yizkor: It is customary to make an appeal for charity before we say Yizkor for the departed souls, whose text includes “Ba’avur she’ani nosein Tzedaka ... Because I shall give to

Week In Review

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

ISRAEL/MIDEAST NEWS YESHIVA STUDENTS TO LOSE STIPENDS Israel must stop providing monthly living stipends to haredi yeshiva students, the nation’s Supreme Court ruled. The stipends, which were intended to encourage integration into Israel’s workforce, were not having the desired effect, the court ruled in a unanimous opinion. Instead, the court said the funding amounted to discrimination against university students, who do not receive such stipends. The yeshiva students receive approximately $1,100 per month for four years. Set to take effect in January, the ruling was responding to a suit filed by the National Union of Israeli Students and an array of religious pluralism groups. The suit was based on a 2010 Supreme Court ruling that state scholarships to yeshiva students amounted to preferential treatment, according to reports. Israel had increased financial aid to university students in the intervening four years, but the court said the measure had not resolved the inequality between yeshiva and university students.

RELIGIOUS COURT GRANTS DIVORCE TO WOMAN WITH COMATOSE HUSBAND An Israeli government religious court granted a get, or ritual divorce, to a woman whose husband is in a coma and cannot consent. The ruling by the court in Safed took place two months ago but was made public last week. Jewish law requires the husband to consent in order for the get to be valid. But the court used a Jewish legal concept called a “get zikui” to allow the divorce because the husband would have consented if he were conscious. The ruling can act as precedent for other women with husbands in comas, but the court ruled that it would not apply to women whose husbands intentionally refuse to divorce them.

MUBARAK SENTENCED TO PRISON Hosni Mubarak, the autocratic president of Egypt deposed in 2011, was sentenced to three years in prison for embezzlement. Mubarak, 86, was sentenced after being convicted of embezzling $17.6 million meant for renovating presidential palaces. His sons, Alaa and Gamal, also were convicted and will serve four-year terms. Mubarak, who is awaiting a retrial on charges of killing protesters during the 2011 Arab Spring demonstrations in Egypt, has been in prison for three years and is under house arrest at a military hospital. It is unclear whether the time he has served will count toward the sentence.

TURKISH PAPER LINKS JEWS TO COAL MINE DISASTER A pro-government Turkish newspaper came under fire for a headline linking Jews to the coalmine disaster in Soma that killed over 100 people. The headline in Yeni Akit criticized the owner of the Soma Coal Mine Company for having a Jewish son-inlaw. According to the Hurriyet Daily News, some readers protested the inflammatory headline as hate speech. The Yeni Akit article criticized the mining owner, Alp Gurkan, for “giving his daughter to a Jew” and suggested that this is why foreign media are “attacking Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyim Erdogan” for the disaster, Hurriyet reported.

INTERNATIONAL NEWS SPANISH JEWS WELCOME VILLAGE’S DECISION TO DROP ‘KILL JEWS’ FROM NAME The federation of Spanish Jewish communities welcomed the decision to remove the words “kill Jews” from

the name of a small village in northern Spain. The statement Monday by the Federation of Jewish Communities in Spain, or FCJE, came after a majority a day earlier at a town hall meeting in favor of changing the village’s name, Castrillo Matajudios, to Castrillo Mota de Judios, which means “Castrillo Jews’ hill.” The decision corresponds with “the municipality’s desire to remain faithful to the true history of the village, whose name became Matajudios because of an error in translation and not because of any bias against Jews,” the statement read. Spanish media reported last month that Lorenzo Rodriguez, the mayor of Castrillo Matajudios, near Leon, was urging residents to agree to the name change. He said Castrillo Mota de Judios was the original name but was changed during or near the Spanish Inquisition of 1492.

The U.S. Senate voted 68-27 in Fischer’s favor four months after President Obama nominated the dual U.S.-Israeli citizen who helmed Israel’s central bank from 2005 to 2013. The Senate’s Democratic leadership agreed to a demand from Republicans for a separate vote on Fischer becoming vice chairman to succeed Janet Yellen, who moved to chairwoman in February after serving as the Fed’s No. 2 from 2010 to 2014. It was not clear when that vote would take place, but last week’s vote clears Fischer, 70, to attend the next Fed meeting, in mid-June. Fischer previously held senior positions at the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund.

FAR-RIGHT PARTIES GAIN IN EUROPEAN ELECTIONS

Arthur Gelb, a former arts critic and managing editor for The New York Times who worked at the newspaper for 45 years, died in his native Manhattan following a stroke. He was 90. The Times in its obituary the day after Gelb’s passing said he was an incisive arts critic who covered a wide range of theater productions. Later, as an editor, he pursued investigative stories and expanded the newspaper’s science, sports, dining, home and magazine sections. He had started at the Times as a copy boy. The son of Jewish immigrants from Czechoslovakia and Ukraine, Gelb worked at the Times from 1944 until his retirement at 1989. Following his Times tenure, he and his wife, Barbara, wrote two books on playwright Eugene O’Neill. In 1970, Gelb broke a story exposing widespread police corruption in New York City. He also pointed reporters to stories ranging from exposing the Jewish heritage of a leading American Nazi to Queens taxi drivers paying off inspectors. The obituary cited Gelb as a mentor to several current or recent prominent Times writers. It said that “by sheer force of personality he was a dominant figure at The New York Times for decades.”

Far-right parties across Europe won an increased share of the vote in elections for the European Parliament. Though Centrist, pro-European Union parties won a majority of Sunday’s vote led by the conservative European People’s Party, far-right parties made significant gains in France, the United Kingdom and Greece, among other nations. In Greece, the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party finished third despite a government crackdown on its leadership and will send three representatives to the European Parliament. The results, taken together with a solid showing by Golden Dawn in last week’s municipal polls, dashed hopes that the crackdown would dent popular support for the party, which has been blamed for dozens of attacks on immigrants in Greece. Many of the party’s leaders had been jailed, and its 18 members of parliament had been stripped of their parliamentary immunity. In France, the far-right National Front won a plurality of the vote with 26 percent, spurring Socialist President Francois Hollande to seek an urgent meeting of top government ministers. National Front leader Marine Le Pen called for new national elections. Le Pen is the daughter of party founder Jean-Marie Le Pen, who has been convicted several times for Holocaust denial.

OTTAWA SHUNS CALL TO CLOSE EXHIBIT SEEN AS EXTOLLING TERRORISM The city of Ottawa will not close an art exhibit denounced as a glorification of terror by Israel’s embassy and the local Jewish community. “Invisible,” the creation of Toronto-based Palestinian artist Rehab Nazzal, focuses on “Palestine…and its military occupation by Israel,” according to a gallery brochure. The exhibit, which is scheduled to end June 22, has been on display at a gallery inside Ottawa City Hall since May 9. Israel’s embassy in the Canadian capital said the exhibit “reflects a culture of hate and incitement that contradicts the values of Canada as a guardian of peace and champion against terror.” Rafael Barak, Israel’s ambassador to Canada, had met with Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson to discuss “the problematic nature of the exhibit, especially because it does not portray ‘artists, activists, writers and leaders,’ as is presented in the pamphlet, but known terrorists,” said a statement from the embassy a day after the meeting. The statement added that the artist is a relative of Khalil Nazzal, who masterminded the Maalot school massacre in Israel that took place 40 years ago this month that killed 22 children and three adults.

ARTHUR GELB, NEW YORK TIMES EDITOR AND CRITIC, DIES

SABRA TRYING TO ESTABLISH U.S. HUMMUS LAW If Sabra Dipping Co. has its way, the use of chickpeas and tahini in making hummus will become U.S. law. The hummus manufacturer, which is co-owned by PepsiCo and the Israel-based Strauss Group, has filed a petition with the Food and Drug Administration to create a standard for which dips are considered hummus. The standard Sabra is seeking would mandate that hummus be comprised primarily of chickpeas and contain no less than 5 percent tahini. The 11-page proposal asks that hummus be defined as “the semisolid food prepared from mixing cooked, dehydrated, or dried chickpeas and tahini with one or more optional ingredients,” according to a news release issued by Sabra. Similar standards exist for other condiments, such as ketchup, mustard and mayonnaise. “As the popularity of hummus has soared in the United States over the past decade, the name has been applied to items consisting primarily of other ingredients,” Sabra chief technology officer Tulin Tuzel said in the statement. “From black beans and white beans to lentils, soybeans, and navy beans, everyone wants to call their dip ‘hummus.’ ”

Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teachers complain about the discipline problems they have in school. In the good old days we never had discipline problems. The teacher would give one wallop â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a swing that started from the floor and connected like a long distance phone call. Shoen! â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who knew from discipline problems? Of course, school back then was different. For example, remember the inkwells that were on every desk with the broken ink cover that always got stuck either open or shut? Remember the ink monitor who would go around the room slopping ink all over the place as he filled the inkwells? Nu, so what made me think of this? A friend of mine reminded me of the time my little brother Berel was the ink monitor at P.S. 67 in the Bronx. What an experience! I remember when Berel came home the first day of school and proudly announced, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ma, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the ink monitor!â&#x20AC;? Who knew what an ink monitor was? But the way he talked, Mama figured it must have been just a step below a principal. She was so proud she even called Papa at work. And Papa was so thrilled he bought Berel a brand new fountain pen. In those days, who knew from a fountain pen, unless you were a bar mitzvah boy? We used a penholder, which was a round piece of wood with a slit on the bottom, and a pen point, which was a little piece of curved steel that was fitted to the bottom of the penholder. These were wonderful little gadgets. They made great darts, too! So Berel was the ink monitor. His duties included getting the huge bottle of ink from the custodianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office and gently pouring about a teaspoon of ink into each childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s little inkwell. Now, under normal circumstances, this was not a major job, but the way Berel carried on it came out like a ship launching every Monday morning. The kids would come to class sparkling with nice clean shirts. By the time Berel finished his job the shirts all had a beautiful navy blue Rorschach inkblot design on the righthand side. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t too bad for the girls â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the ink stain designs blended quite nicely with their navy blue skirts. Seriously, though, everybody in school knew immediately which kids were in Berelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s class. The ink stains became sort of a trademark. Oh, those inkwells! They were probably the first garbage disposal units. Any piece of gum you had left over you would stick in the inkwell. Any candy wrapper you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want the teacher to see went into the inkwell. And when a small crack would develop on the inkwell, all the ink would drip onto the books, which

made reading them almost impossible for the rest of the term. In fact, whenever the teachers would give homework, the battle cry was, â&#x20AC;&#x153;That page was torn out of my book!â&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the page Berel drowned with ink!â&#x20AC;? I remember one kid in Berelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s class who probably went on to work for the CIA. This kid had the mind of a James Bond. Whenever the teacher would yell at him for not knowing something, her smock would always wind up with a wad of ink on the backside. The poor teacher could never figure out how the ink got there. She even set a trap for the culprit â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but that youngster was too smart. He was never caught. Want to hear what he did? This little monster would take a piece of paper, dip it into the inkwell and then carefully rub the inky paper against the blackboard. When the teacher would lean against the blackboard the ink would be sucked into the cotton smock. By the time the ink stain on the smock was discovered, the ink on the blackboard had dried and was practically undetectable against the blackboard surface. That teacher must have gone through a hundred smocks that term â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with an ink stain always in the same place. About that fountain pen Papa bought for Berel: it was the envy of every kid in the class. Berel would delight in filling and emptying the pen a dozen times a day. And every time he emptied his pen he would squirt the ink in any and all directions. Usually it went into the golden locks of Sylvia Goodman, who sat in front of him throughout his elementary school career. That poor kid would have been stylish today with her yellow and blue hair, but in those days it was nearly a tragedy. Every time Berel squirted her hair with the ink the girl would scream, the teacher would yell, and Mama would have to put in a guest appearance at school. Poor little Sylvia would have to go to the barber to have him cut off any hair that had absorbed the ink. By the end of the term she was nearly bald. Somehow or other, though, Berel weathered the storm. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kids are really being cheated with their cheap ballpoint pens. So clean and stain free. The worst thing that can happen is that the pen suddenly runs out of ink as youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re writing a report or taking a test â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in which case you simply reach for a new one. Gone are the good old days of writing a whole page of homework neatly and clearly â&#x20AC;&#x201C; only to spill a bottle of ink over the entire page as you wrote the last word. Can you imagine how much fun that was?

Heilman Continued from p.39 head of school, Rory Paul, says the immigrants have added a whole new dimension to Gray and exposed the Canadian kids to foreign languages and cultures. But the immigrants also have helped push for a curriculum that focuses less on Judaics, and the tuition discounts they’ve been given have wrought financial havoc on the school’s bottom line, according to Paul. Originally, the idea was that the immigrants’ lot gradually would improve and eventually they would be able to afford tuition, Paul says, but two troubling trends have emerged: One, immigrant parents often decide after a couple of years to pull their kids from Gray because they’re not really interested in formal Jewish education. Two, when immigrant parents finally do well enough in their careers to afford the tuition, they end up leaving town for better jobs. “In the last two years, 30 students representing about 20 families moved away from Winnipeg to other cities to take on senior management jobs,” Paul said. “Where’s the payback to Winnipeg? Where’s the payback to all the money Winnipeg has invested in them in the first five to eight years? The cost factor is huge in terms of what the immigration is doing to the rest of the community.” Danial Sprintz, executive director of Camp Massad, a Hebrew immersion summer camp with many immigrant children, says that “those kids, while taking a lot financially, give back more than they could ever take.” Many community members describe the immigration as a tale of two cities. The immigrants from Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Mexico bring with them strong traditions of Jewish communal engagement and Zionism, and for the most part they are active community members. Then there are the Israelis, the bulk of them Russian speakers, who are mostly secular and uninterested in Jewish communal life except for the occasional Yom HaAtzmaut or Purim party. “You’ve changed the mix of the community by bringing in 4,000 secular Israelis. Is that going to be a recipe for the future? I have my doubts,” said Rhonda Spivak, editor of the Winnipeg Jewish Review, an online publication. “There are definitely people who don’t think it’s going to lengthen the life of the organized Jewish community, especially if many Russian Israelis don’t integrate into the organized community or ultimately help support the community institutions.” Despite the harsh winters and mosquito-infested summers, Winnipeg has much to offer prospective newcomers. A diversified economic base has helped make its economy the fourth-strongest among Canadian cities, according to the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, and Winnipeg has big-city amenities with a small-town feel. Perhaps most important, Manitoba is actively seeking skilled immigrants, so long as they meet certain criteria related to employability, education,  language proficiency and

Klass Continued from p.40 Sukkah (6:13, s.v. “B’zman hazeh...”). But you are correct. I should have placed the words “Shemini Atzeret” in brackets since, as you note, Rabbi Yosef Karo is very clear in Shulchan Aruch (Orach Chayim 668:1) that the text is “b’yom Shemini Chag HaAtzeret hazeh.” The Rema (in his glosses ad. loc.) explains that the custom of European Jewry is to omit the word “chag” on Shemini Atzeret because we do not find anywhere in Chumash (see Leviticus 23:36 and Numbers 29:35) that Shemini Atzeret is referred to with this word. The Magen Avraham (ad. loc.) nevertheless cites the Maharshal who writes that one should say “Shemini Atzeret hachag hazeh.” Hence the almost universal inclusion of the word “hachag” in most of our prayer books, albeit in a different order in nusachot Ashkenaz and Sefard.

Yisrael Levi Responds: The Rema is quoting Sefer HaMinhagim and is speaking of Eastern European Jewry, not all of European Jewry. The Maharil and Tosafot (Sukkah, 48a) clearly include the word “chag” but use the word order of the Shulchan Aruch, not the Maharshal. The Mishnah Berurah (Orach Chayim 668:3, 4), relying on the Gra and others, agrees with the Mechaber’s word order – which is also the order suggested by the Maharil and Tosafot. Thus, almost all contemporary Nusach Ashkenaz siddurim and machzorim follow the Mechaber et al. – and not the Rema or the Maharshal. Nusach Sefard follows the Maharshal. Non-Ashkenazim, as in almost all cases, follow the Mechaber. Thus, your last sentence needs revision, as it is not a clear-cut dispute with Ashkenazim on one side and Sefardim on the other.

Avoiding Capital Gains Tax In Real Estate Transactions By Raymond Zeitoune, Esq. and Isaac Yedid, Esq. When it comes to real estate transactions, many clients have asked what exactly is a 1031 exchange, what are the guidelines and timelines, and can a 1031 exchange legally defer their capital gains taxes? This article attempts to explain the 1031 structure in its basic and most simple form. A l031 exchange is a transaction in which a taxpayer/investor is allowed to exchange an investment property for another investment property by deferring the tax consequence of a sale. Additionally, an investor may want to buy multiple properties requiring a more complex 1031 exchange. The limitation is three properties but there are different ways to complete the transactions in order to maximize the 1031 benefits. These types of transactions are authorized by §1031 of the IRS Code. In short, §1031 allows for a tax-deferred exchange. This means that taxpayers/investors do not have to pay a capital gains tax when they sell an investment property and reinvest the proceeds from that property into a likekind or similar asset(s). The IRS Code actually reads: “No gain or loss shall be recognized on the exchange of property held for productive use in a trade or business or for investment, if such property is exchanged solely for property of like kind, which is to be held either for productive use in a trade or business or for investment.” Properties that do not qualify under a 1031 exchange are personal residences, interests in partnerships, business inventory, and property owned by dealers.

In order to qualify for a 1031 exchange, many rules have to be followed. Beware; the devil is in the detail.

Requirements for a 1031 Exchange Timelines for a 1031 Exchange: The investor (or exchanger) must follow the strict 45/180-day guidelines for a proper exchange. Once the exchanger sells his/ her property (relinquished property) he/ she has 45 days from the closing date of the property sold to identify new property(s) of equal or greater value. Once identified, the exchanger has 180 days from the day he/she sold their property to acquire the property(s) identified and close on the new property. The IRS offers no flexibility on these time periods. Like-Kind Property in a 1031 Exchange: The investor must acquire “likekind” property. This means that it must be other qualifying forms of real estate. For example, the exchanger could sell a duplex and purchase a commercial property, or he/she could sell a piece of land and buy an apartment building. The property just needs to be “like-kind.” Exchange Property Held for Investment: The property sold (relinquished property) and the newly acquired property (replacement property) must be held for investment or business purposes. Therefore, you cannot sell your primary residence and buy an investment property, nor could you sell an investment property and purchase a primary home. Equal or Greater Debt and Equity in a

Zeitoune and Yedid Continued from p.64 1031 Exchange: If the exchanger sells a property for $1 million, in which $500,000 was equity and $500,000 was debt, then the exchanger needs to purchase $1 million or more worth of property. Furthermore, the exchanger needs to use all the equity and replace all of the debt to defer 100% of the capital gains taxes. The exchanger may add additional proceeds to the new purchase if he/she wishes and the exchanger can take on additional debt if desired as well. If the exchanger does not wish to use all of the sales proceeds he/she may do a partial exchange and pay the applicable capital gains taxes on the difference. This is referred to as “boot.” Constructive Receipt and Qualified Intermediary for a 1031 Exchange: The exchanger may not receive cash from the sale. This is known as “constructive receipt” and would trigger a taxable event

on those monies received. According to the IRS safe harbor provisions, the exchanger must use a Qualified Intermediary or QI to facilitate the 1031 transaction. The QI is an independent 3rd party (not your attorney, agent, broker or CPA) who holds the sales proceeds and purchases the replacement property on your behalf. It is extremely important in today’s environment to associate only with reputable, insured and bonded qualified intermediaries. In conclusion, the main benefit of a 1031 exchange is the deferral of capital gains tax, which can be significant depending on the price of the properties involved. It is important to work closely with your accountant, tax advisor and real estate attorney to find the best possible structure for your needs. Isaac Yedid and Raymond Zeitoune are partners at Yedid & Zeitoune, PLLC. The attorneys have a combined 15 years of legal experience.

SHABBAT FORSHPEIS RABBI AVI WEISS

both of his deceased sons to whom Tamar had been married had no children. Boaz marries Ruth, but through Ruth, the line of Naomi, was perpetuated. In both stories, the man performing the redemption is reluctant to perform the good deed. Judah hesitates to allow Tamar to marry into his family; Boaz also seems reluctant to marry Ruth. Another common feature in each of these stories is that a woman teaches the reluctant man his responsibility to bring the family together. Tamar does this by reminding Judah of his responsibility to marry her and Ruth does the same, reminding Boaz of his responsibility. Finally, it can be suggested that both stories are segues to our nationhood. Soon after Judah’s family is reunited we become a nation, and the book of Exodus begins. Soon after, Ruth and Boaz marry they have a child, from whom ultimately the Messiah will come – marking the redemption of the Jewish people. Both of these stories remind us of the confluence between family and nation. In this time of great challenge and struggle in Israel, may we feel the pain of what is happening not merely as fellow members of the Jewish nation but in the deepest way, as members of our own family. Rabbi Avi Weiss is founder and president of Yeshivat Chovevei Torah and senior rabbi of the Hebrew Institute of Riverdale.

The Integral Link Between Nation And Family The story of Ruth is one of a family in dissolution. Naomi’s husband and two sons die, leaving her with her two daughters in law, Orpah and Ruth. By the end of the book, family is found once again. Ruth marries Boaz and they have a child Obed, who is raised by Naomi (Ruth 4: 17). From this perspective, the book of Ruth parallels the story of Judah and Tamar in the book of Bereishit. There, too, the family of Judah was in disarray. Two of his sons, Er and Onan, had died. Judah was reluctant to have his third son marry Tamar, the widow of his older two sons. At the conclusion of the story, Judah’s family also comes together after he has relations with Tamar from whom twins were born. Interestingly, the mechanism used to reunite the fragmented family in both stories is yibum – the Levirate marriage. In the yibum process, a man is directed to marry the widow of his brother who had been childless. In the case of Ruth, she marries Boaz; Judah does the same when he marries Tamar. Rabbi David Silber points out similarities in the yibum of the two stories. In both, a double yibum is performed. Judah marries Tamar since

brating, dancing and lifting the Torah scrolls high in the air. But this Simchat Torah was very different and very sad. What and how should we celebrate? Should we proceed as if the war was not happening? Our rosh yeshiva, Rav Moshe Horowitz, decided for us, and we marched down to the Kotel, site of the last remnant from the days of the Second Temple, to celebrate. Upon arriving, we saw that we were the only ones who had come out. I felt we were sending a message to the world and to our Arab enemies: Am Yisrael Chai! The people of Israel are alive and will continue forever. No attempt to destroy us will succeed. Soon the war will be over, and the task of recovery and healing will begin, and we will remain strong and live on! These ideas of the eternity of the Jewish people and the need to heal were expressed very beautifully by General Moshe Dayan, when he spoke at Yeshivat Merkaz HaRav on Israelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Independence Day only six months later. He spoke about healing and recovery, not failure and blame. He quoted from the Book of Genesis (Chapter 32) that describes how Yaakov returned to the city of Penuel after his â&#x20AC;&#x153;battleâ&#x20AC;? with the angel of Esau. The Torah says that the â&#x20AC;&#x153;sun showed for him,â&#x20AC;? and Rashi comments that the meaning of the phrase is a description of how Yaakov was healed after being injured during his struggle against Esau. And so, too, the state of Israel was slowly healing from its wounds. And just as our forefather Yaakov healed and recovered, so, too, would the state of Israel. Several years later, in 1977, I again walked down to the Old City on Jerusalem Day with Yeshivat Merkaz Harav. But this time I walked with my beautiful ďŹ ancĂŠe, my wife of 36 years. Our love began and blossomed in the city that had become my true spiritual home. When preparing to celebrate Israelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 19th anniversary, Naomi Shemer composed the famous song, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jerusalem of Gold,â&#x20AC;? which expresses the incredible beauty that is so much a part of the uniqueness of

Rabbi Lau noted that if someone as great as Rabbi Elazar ben Arach was susceptible to this, how much more so are we. “Don’t let one day pass without adding to your knowledge of Torah,” he said. The author of Maskil LeDavid, which discusses matters related to genealogy, conversion, military law and other subjects, Rabbi Lau is the son of former Ashkenazi chief rabbi of Israel and current chief rabbi of Tel Aviv Yisrael Meir Lau. Rabbi David Lau was the first Ashkenzai chief rabbi of the city of Modi’in and was elected to his current post in July 2013, for a ten-year term. Rabbi Doniel Lander, rosh yeshiva of Yeshivas Ohr Hachaim as well as Beis Medrash L’Talmud, welcomed Rabbi Lau and talked about the longtime friendship between both families. Rabbi Yisrael Meir Lau gave the keynote address at a 2007 gala honoring Rabbi Lander’s father, Touro founder Dr. Bernard Lander, and he also delivered a lecture commemorating Dr. Lander’s first yahrzeit in 2011. Martin Oliner, the mayor of Lawrence, N.Y. and a member of the Touro College Board of Trustees who was heavily involved in arranging the visit to the Lander Colleges, introduced Rabbi Lau and said that he was certain Dr. Lander would have been proud to see the chief rabbi addressing the talmidim.

Jewish National Fund’s Iconic Blue Box Redesigned Jewish National Fund (JNF) today introduced its re-designed pushke, better known as the Blue Box, this one highlighting the seven program areas JNF supports. “More than a century old, our little Blue Box is known the world over but it does change to keep up with the times,” said Russell F. Robinson, CEO of JNF, “Today’s pushke represents the many projects in Israel that we and our partners are funding to build a prosperous future for the land of Israel and its people.” The box has seen many iterations over the years. The first one was actually Theodor Herzl’s hat. At the Fifth Zionist Congress in 1901, Herzl removed his hat and asked delegates for donations to purchase land in Eretz Yisrael to re-establish a Jewish homeland. Two weeks later, the iconic Blue Box, or pushke, was born. Stamped with the words “National Fund,” small tin boxes were distributed to Jewish communities across the globe and numbered over a million by World War II. Their impact was immediate, generating vital funds to develop and cultivate the land of Israel. For many people, the Blue Box is an integral part

of childhood memories. More than a century after its creation, it remains a powerful symbol of the link between Diaspora Jewry and the people of Israel. Today, Jewish National Fund is known for so much more than collecting change in a box, but is as proud as ever of its iconic Blue Box – the box that built a country. The new box highlights JNF’s work in seven program areas in seven different colors: Community Building (Yellow); Forestry & Green innovations (Green); Water Renewal (Blue); Research & Development (Red); Zionist Education and Advocacy (Purple); Heritage Sites (Brown); and Accessibility & Therapeutic Services (Orange). Hundreds of colored dots representing the seven program areas are displayed from the north to the south on the map of Israel along with the statement, “Help build tomorrow today.” You may order your complimentary Blue Box online at jnf.org/bluebox or by calling 800.542.8733. You may also order larger quan-

tities of Blue Boxes for your organization, synagogue or school. JNF invites everyone to share their first or favorite memories of a Blue Box with us. Send your comments to bluebox@jnf.org or post them on our social media sites at Facebook and Twitter. Teachers and students can access the new and improved Blue Box Bob Facebook page for education materials, resources, and JNF programs. The page will also highlight JNF and Blue Box Bob events around the country and share relevant stories, pictures and videos.

process and offer advice to writers, and another one by Mrs. Etka Gittel Schwartz, who will also present writing tips. Writing workshops will be led by Mrs. Chaviva Pfeiffer, celebrated author of the Maggid series for children and Mrs. Susie Garber, author of Denver Dreams, Befriend and other books.

The Fashionable German Colony By Gedaliah Borvick

such as Baka, whose official name is Geulim, and Katamon, whose official name is Gonen – the new Hebrew name Rambam was never accepted by the public. Today, the neighborhood is called “Hamoshava HaGermanit” or “Hamoshava” for short. In order to preserve the German Colony’s charm, in 1973 the neighborhood was declared a historical site. This landmark designation limited the ability to destroy the older buildings, and as a result, many of the original homes have been restored, which has helped retain the community’s unique character. Due to its proximity to numerous cultural and religious institutions and holy sites, the German Colony has become a magnet for Jews from all over the world

– especially English-speaking families – who desire a sense of community and also want to take advantage of the myriad cultural, religious and social opportunities in the vicinity. The neighborhood is comprised of people of all ages, including many young families, but seniors in particular appreciate the German Colony’s flat terrain, which stands out in a city that is comprised of many hills.

The German Colony is an exciting and upscale Jerusalem neighborhood. It is famous for its main thoroughfare Emek Refaim, which is one of the city’s most popular streets, bustling with activity and boasting cafes, restaurants and trendy boutiques. The German Colony is centrally located, bounded Gedaliah Borvick is the founder of My Israel Home by the old train station to the north, the Greek Colony (www.myisraelhome.com), a real estate agency focused to the south, Derech Beit Lechem to the east, and Old on helping people from abroad buy and sell homes in Katamon to the west.

The German Colony was established in 1872 by members of the Temple Society, a German Protestant sect of the Lutheran church. The Templers purchased a large tract of land situated in Refaim Valley southwest of the Old City – which at the time housed almost all of the city’s population – and built a colony similar to villages in Germany. The community was comprised of one- and two-story farmhouses with green shutters, red tile roofs and fenced-in gardens, using local Jerusalem stone instead of the traditional wood and brick materials. The German Templers lived in the neighborhood until the middle of World War II, and in 1943 the British government deported the Templers as enemy aliens and Nazi sympathizers.

Why is Rosh Hashanah so different from other Jewish holidays? On the face of it, it does not seem to follow any pattern. It is celebrated for two days not only in the Diaspora but also in Israel. Yet the sages refer to the two days of Rosh Hashanah as yoma arichta – one long day. On Pesach, Shavuot, and Sukkot we keep Yom Tov for two days because during the time of the Second Temple there was doubt whether the month preceding Yom Tov was a chodesh chaser of 29 days or a chodesh maleh of 30 days. But on Rosh Hashanah, the doubt was exacerbated for the following reason. In the case of other festivals, such as Pesach, the emissaries the bet din dispatched to advise outlying districts of a chodesh chaser, had 14 days to reach their destination. In the case of Rosh Hashanah, however, the emissaries had no time at all. In fact, as soon as the witnesses had testified on the 30th day of Elul that they had sighted the new moon, that very day was declared as Rosh Hashanah. And on Rosh Hashanah the emissaries could not travel more than the techum Shabbat distance beyond Jerusalem. As a result, even those living inside Israel but outside of Jerusalem remained in doubt. And confusion reigned even inside Jerusalem. Nobody knew whether the witnesses who would testify to the sighting

RABBI BEN TZION SHAFIER

chamim that the modus operandi of the yetzer hara is to convince potential sinners that the act tempting them is permitted. Only when it succeeds, and they are convinced, will they then transgress. This statement – people only sin when they are convinced it is permitted – seems difficult to understand. If we are dealing with a pious, proper Jewish woman who got into a bad situation, she knows the act she wants to commit is forbidden. How can the yetzer hara teach her it is permitted? On the other hand, the Torah may be speaking about the opposite extreme – a woman who has gone off the path and just doesn’t care. Why does she need the yetzer hara to tell her it is permitted? She doesn’t care. So on both sides of the spectrum, the yetzer hara either should be unable to convince the person it is permitted – or it shouldn’t need to do any convincing. The answer to this question is based on understanding one of the most consistent quirks of human nature: “I never do anything wrong.” Whether sophisticated adults or schoolchildren, Supreme Court justices or convicted felons, humans seem never to do anything wrong. Wardens will tell you their jails are filled with self-proclaimed innocent men. Thieves aren’t wrong. Murderers aren’t wrong. You won’t find a gangster proclaiming, “Yes, it is evil to murder and pillage, but what can I do? I am weak and give

I Never Do Anything Wrong “Speak to Bnei Yisrael and say to them: any man whose wife shall go astray and commit treachery against him…” – Bamidbar 5:12

FREE My Miles Yehuda Schwartz 516-569-3257 yehuda@freemymiles.com

The Torah describes the details of a sotah. If a woman acts in a manner that causes her husband to suspect her of infidelity, he should warn her not to go into seclusion with that other man. If she violates this warning, then the husband is to take her to the kohen. The kohen will give her the “bitter waters” to drink. If she was unfaithful, she will instantly die. If she was not unfaithful, she will be redeemed and blessed. When the Torah lays out the details, it uses an unusual expression: “If a man will tishteh his wife.” The word tishteh comes from the root shoteh, which means insanity. It’s as if to say, “If a man will accuse his wife of insanity.” Rashi is troubled by the use of this expression. He explains, based on the Gemara, that adulterers do not sin until a wave of insanity enters them. The Siftei Chachamim explains this to mean, “until their yetzer hara teaches them it is permitted.” It seems clear from the Siftei Cha-

Shafier Continued from p.76 into my desires.” Instead, you will hear an entire belief system explaining his approach to life is actually better for society and the world. Why can’t a man just admit it is wrong to steal but he wants to do it anyway? The reason for this has to do with the inner working of the human. Hashem created man out of two distinct parts. One is comprised all of the drives and passions found in the animal kingdom; it is simply base instincts and desires. The other part of man is pure intellect: holy, good and giving. Because this part of me is made up of pure intellect and wisdom, it would never allow me to sin. It sees the results too clearly. It understands that all of Hashem’s commandments are for my good and that every sin damages me. Because of this crystal clear insight, the human would not have the free will to sin. In theory, he could be tempted to sin, but he would never actually come to the act. It would be akin to sticking his hand in a fire. In theory he could do it, but it would never happen. So if Hashem created man with just these two parts, man would not have free will in a practical sense. To allow man to be tempted so that he can choose his course and be rewarded for his proper choices, Hashem put another component in man: imagination. Imagination is the creative ability to form a mental picture and feel it as vividly as if it were real. Armed with an imagination, man

can create fanciful worlds at his will and actually believe them. If man wishes to turn to evil, he can create rationales to make these ways sound noble and proper – and fool himself at least. If he wishes he can do what is right, or if he wishes he can turn to wickedness. Even his brilliant intellect won’t prevent him. He is capable of creating entire worldviews that explain how the behavior he desires is righteous, correct, and appropriate. Man has free will. The answer to this Rashi has two levels. First, we see the power of rationalizing. Even a fully mature, pious woman who grew up in the best of homes can be convinced, on some level, that illicit relations are permitted. The yetzer hara will use her imagination and create clever and creative ways to explain that black is white, in is out, and arayos is permitted. As ridiculous as it sounds, that is the power given to the yetzer hara. The second idea is that even the woman who seems to be off the derech and wouldn’t need an excuse really does. No human can ever do something that is wrong. Because of the greatness of her soul and the truth she knows deep down inside, she understands that for a married woman to go to another man is forbidden. The only way she can perpetrate this act is if she has a rational way of explaining how in fact it is permitted. The human is incapable of doing something wrong. The only way he can do something wrong is by making it right.

As the school year comes to a close, our children, having finished their Regents and finals, can breathe a collective sigh of relief. If you’ve been helping your children with high school mathematics, undoubtedly you are amazed to see how drastically the curriculum has changed. The new integrated math is almost unrecognizable compared with what we studied a couple of decades ago. This is because educators are always trying to sharpen their methodology in order to transmit to their students in the most effective way possible. This pursuit of educational improvement has not skipped the Hebrew sector. One of the suggested innovations is to teach the alef-beis not in its traditional order but rather by grouping phonetically similar letters. Thus, the teacher would introduce the veis and vav in a group, the samech and the sin, the kaf and the kuf. He would similarly group together such letters as the alef with the ayin. When this new methodology was introduced to one of our gedolim, he summarily nixed it. He explained that the Torah says (Masechtas Shabbos 104a) the precise sequence of the alef-beis contains the fundamental values of Yiddishkeit. Thus, the Gemara states, “Alef, beis, gimel, daled stands for aluf binah gomeil dalim,” which translates as “Learn understanding and be benevolent to the poor.” It is therefore unacceptable to tamper with the order of the holy letters. When Bnei Yisrael were in the desert, they were – as a whole – a generation unparalleled in scholarship. The entire nation spent their lives studying Torah under the magnificent tutelage of Moshe Rabbeinu. Indeed, we are taught that they were called the Genera-

tion of Knowledge. Still, when it came the time to pick a master architect for the building of the mishkan, the tabernacle in the desert, incredibly they chose a young boy named Betzalel. What mastery did Betzalel possess that made him qualified for this job above all others? The Gemara tells us that it was because he knew “how to combine the letters of the alef-beis, of which the very heavens and earth were created.” So too, we are taught, “Bereishis borah Elokim es – In the beginning, G-d created with [the word] es.” The word es, spelled alef-tof, the first and last letters of the alef-beis, stands for the very letters of the holy tongue that were the actual building materials of the Ten Utterances that G-d used to create heaven and earth. To begin to illustrate this subject, we’ll start with the letter lamed, the tallest letter of the alef-beis. The Baal HaTurim says lamed is made up of the letter chaf with a vav perched on top. The gematria of that combination, chaf plus vav, is twenty-six, the same numerical value as the Ineffable Name, Yud-Kei-Vav-Kei. For these reasons, in Osios d’Rabbi Akiva we are taught that the lamed represents Hashem, the King of kings, Who towers above all others, as does the lamed. It’s fitting, therefore, that sitting on either side of this letter in the sequence of the alef-beis is the kaf, which stands for the Kisei HaKavod, the Throne of Glory, and the mem, which stands for malchus, kingship. Together these three letters make up the word melech, king. The structure of the lamed also symbolizes the heart for the lamed has a trunk in the middle with two pipe-like branches, with one going up and one going down, representing the heart that has an artery taking in the blood and another taking out the blood. Thus, the lamed stands for lev, the heart. To round out the subject, the Gemara tells us the reward for aluf binah gomeil dalim is hei vav – which, being the root of the Yud-Kei-Vav-Kei, is Hashem’s Name. Next comes zion ches tes yud, which the Gemara renders to zon, chein, meitav and yoreish, “He will sustain, show grace, demonstrate goodness, and transmit to us.” Next come kaf and lamed, meaning, respectively,

Grunfeld Continued from p.75 people from working on the 30th of Elul after Minchah time, the Rabbis merged the 30th day of Elul with the 31st day, declaring them both one long day, or yoma arichta. From this decree on, the two days of Rosh Hashanah, unlike the two days of Pesach, Shavuot and Sukkot, were no longer celebrated out of doubt but out of certainty. This distinction between the status of the two days of Rosh Hashanah and the two days of the other festivals has practical ramifications. For example, on Rosh Hashanah one may not extend the techum Shabbat 4,0000 amot in two directions, as one may on the two days of Pesach, Shavuot and Sukkot. Because the two days of Rosh Hashanah are merged into one yoma arichta, only one eruv techumin could be placed for both days to allow for walking 4,000 amot in only one chosen direction. Similarly, the argument that an egg laid on the first day of Pesach, Shavuot or Sukkot could be eaten on the second day of these festivals would not apply. An egg laid on the

first day Rosh Hashanah could not be eaten on the second. Following the destruction of the Second Temple, the dilemma of the Levites was no longer a concern. Accordingly, it was decreed that the testimony of witnesses arriving after Minchah on the 30th of Elul would once again be accepted, thereby rendering Rosh Hashanah one day. If witnesses did not arrive by nightfall of the 30th, Rosh Hashanah would be two days. The decree did not, however, apply to the Diaspora, where it could not be known on the 30th day whether the witnesses had arrived or not. Accordingly, Rosh Hashanah in the Diaspora remained two days by decree. The Babylonian rabbis who came to Israel applied the same decree there. Although we now know which day is genuinely Rosh Hashanah, we continue to celebrate two days everywhere out of respect for the tradition of our ancestors (minhag avoteichem beyedeichem).

The Siddur By Penina Metal The siddur is nothing special to look at. It is plain black with a flower embossed in its center. It was published in 1912 by The Hebrew Publishing Company and is most likely out of print. So what is so special about this prayer book? It belonged to my father, of blessed memory. Daddy kept it locked in a special compartment in our breakfront. He took it out each morning when he davened by the window abutting the china closet. I can still see him shuckling, clad in his white silk tallit with blue embroidery. He davened with such kavanah. And I wanted to daven just like him. I was about six years old and, as I sat next to Daddy in shul, I moved my lips whispering whatever sounds I could think of. “Daddy,” I exclaimed, “Is this how you daven?” Daddy’s response was a hearty laugh. I felt so proud of myself. It was only when I attended yeshiva and really learned how to daven that I appreciated Daddy’s sensitivity as well as his sense of humor. Daddy was very proud of his name, Avraham Moonish. (Moonish is a derivative of the name Menachem.) When

Daddy was called up for an aliyah, he marched proudly to the bimah. On other occasions, because he was very strong, Baruch Hashem, he took great pride in accepting the honor of gelilah. After davening, during the customary Kiddush, I felt like a little princess when Daddy put a piece of herring into a kichel and passed it on to me. Afterwards, with jaunty steps, Daddy just about danced his way home holding hands with me. Daddy had another special mitzvah that never failed to offer chizuk to the infirm or to those needing an extra measure of protection: making a Mi Shebeirach during kriat haTorah. The time came when it was Daddy who needed special protection. But it was not to be. On a hot Erev Shabbat, with Daddy looking very tired, I entreated my parents to remain with us for Shabbat. But Daddy told me that if he did, there would be no minyan in shul since many men were away in their summer homes. Of course, Daddy was right. But I never saw him again. When we returned to the house from the hospital, the first thing I did was retrieve Daddy’s siddur from its special place. Holding it close I asked my mother and sister if I could keep it, and to my shock they said that I could. To my mind, this siddur embodies the wonderful qualities that Daddy

Ritual Without Morality

The Gemara (Avoda Zarah 3a) relates that the gentile nations of the world complained about the reward that will ultimately be given to the Jewish people for observing mitzvot. Had G-d given mitzvot to them, they contended, they would also have observed

How could the nations of the world have contended that G-d never gave them mitzvot? Is it not part of our Torah mesorah that Hashem offered them the Torah prior to the Revelation on Mount Sinai and they turned it down? 2) Usually G-d helps people observe mitzvot. In

In Memoriam Cravatts Continued from p.8 are socially and culturally inferior to white people in America, a topic for which there is undoubtedly much opinion on both sides of the argument. They could, as Lawrence Summers did before he was forced to resign as president of Harvard University for having done so, question whether the reason women fail to excel in math and the sciences, and do not therefore fill faculty slots in those fields, is due to a genetic superiority in men, a controversial but oft-debated theory. There are other relevant and current debates in the marketplace of ideas that certainly are open to opinions from both sides, such as whether when a woman undergoes an abortion she is murdering a child, or if homosexuality is a mental disorder and

lifestyle choice as opposed to a physiological condition predetermined at birth. If the committee wished for students to evaluate politics and theology, they might have asked if Islam is actually “the religion of peace” or instead is actually an intolerant cult that rejects modernity, requires submission by its adherents, represses women, and has a long history of terror, aggression, and jihad against the infidel world. All of these topics differ from the one actually chosen by the committee in that none of them can be proven absolutely, and all can be vigorously argued from differing points of view – exactly what the assignment in question was meant to inspire. But obviously none of them was chosen, and the reason is just as obvious: had anyone on the committee even dared to have articulated any of the examples above, the other committee members would have been apoplectic at the very thought of questioning prevailing

orthodoxies or offending members of the groups involved. In the rarified atmosphere of present-day American culture, particularly on campuses, certain topics are off limits and the behavior of certain groups can never be questioned. None of these topics and behaviors would ever be considered for use as a critical thinking assignment precisely because every educator in that committee room would intuitively realize that members of the groups targeted might feel maligned, insulted, libeled, or intimidated by the ensuing discussion. But when Jews, and the central horror of Jewish history, were the topic, that moral sensitivity was strangely absent, and the lesson of this incident is to be found just there: that anti-Semitism infected the student assignment completely and no one even knew it had entered the room.

in a culture of entitlement. To this very day, though it happened thousands of years ago, we Jews still confess to G-d that we are forever indebted to Him for having redeemed us from Egypt. We praise His name and with joyous hearts sing “Dayeinu” – proclaiming that even if G-d had just given us one gift, we would be forever indebted. Ten days before his demise, My Rabbi, HaRav Meshulem HaLevi Jungreis, zt”l, asked to be taken outside. It was a cold, snowy January day. We tried to discourage him but he was adamant. We asked the doctors and they gave their consent – but only for three minutes. I brought him his winter coat, hat, scarf and gloves. It was a painful sight. His coat just hung on him – this powerful man whom everyone knew as the “gentle giant” looked skeletal. At one point the coat fell to the ground. It was an agonizing sight. I tried to hold back my tears. My children wheeled him outside.

I was standing right next to him holding his hand when he began speaking. With tears rolling down his cheeks he whispered, “Master of the Universe, I thank You for the spectacular world You created and for the beautiful family with which You blessed me.” At that point he named every family member. He continued: “I thank You for Your every kindness, Your mercy and compassion. I thank You for guiding me through the many turbulences of life. I thank You, I thank You…” Bear in mind that this was a man who experienced firsthand the horrors of the Holocaust, who saw his entire family slaughtered. And yet this was a man who could, with all his remaining strength, thank G-d for all His blessings. A man who knew all about true gratitude. That was My Rabbi, the man for whom those little ducks lined up in honor-guard formation as his body embarked on its last earthly journey and his soul ascended to Heaven.

Letters To The Editor Jews have an issue with gays marching in the Celebrate Israel parade. Would Mr. Brenner welcome Jews for Jesus and similar groups to the parade? If the majority of marchers in the parade are in fact from Orthodox schools, then those schools have a moral right to back out of the parade. David Goldberger (Via E-Mail)

Israel Parade Controversy (II)

One of the open secrets surrounding the Celebrate Israel parade is that it has become almost entirely a Modern Orthodox event. True, there are some non-Orthodox organizations, community centers, schools and synagogues that participate, but if you took away the Modern Orthodox organizations, schools, camps, etc., you wouldn’t have much of a parade. Likewise, a huge percentage of the spectators lined up along Fifth Avenue to show their support are conspicuously Orthodox – men wearing kippot and tzitzit and women dressed modestly, the married ones sporting tichels and caps. Many of the spectators are in fact parents, siblings, uncles and aunts of the marchers and they call out to loved ones when their

day school or organization marches past. So for people like Michael Brenner to dismiss the concerns of Torah-observant Jews, without whom the Celebrate Israel parade would be a shell of itself, is as shortsighted as it is unfair. It’s actually a terrible shame that such a small percentage of Jews living in the tri-state area bother to show up for the Celebrate Israel parade. Maybe if more of them did, Mr. Brenner would have more of a leg to stand on. Chaim Rich (Via E-Mail)

Israel Parade Controversy (III)

Reader Michael Brenner is wrong in his assertion that the Celebrate Israel Parade is not a Jewish parade. Our claim to Israel is that God promised the land of Israel to Abraham and his descendants. Israel is our land because we are Jews. Further, the same Torah that records God’s promise to give us the land of Israel also condemns the gay lifestyle. A true concern for the unity of the Jewish people would dictate that the minority capitulate to the majority, not the other way around. Josh Greenberger Brooklyn, NY

Appreciating Jerusalem, Joy Of All The Earth Beautifully Written

I would like to express my sincere appreciation for the beautifully written “Joy of All the Earth: Meditations on Jerusalem” by Faigie Heiman (oped, May 23) which you ran in honor of Yom Yerushalayim. It is a moving love letter to the magnificent city that has been the focus of our collective dreams and aspirations for thousands of years. May all of Klal Yisrael treasure the priceless gift Hashem has given us and may we B”H merit a Divine return to our miraculously reunited Holy City speedily in our days.

Lyrical

Faigie Heiman’s unusual, lyrical article about Jerusalem is at once poetically written and historically informative. Thank you to the author. Sarah Shapiro Jerusalem Editor’s Note: Sarah Shapiro is an author and editor whose books include “All of Our Lives: An Anthology of Contemporary Jewish Writers,” “A Gift Passed Along: A Woman Looks at the World Around Her,” and “Wish I Were Here: Finding My Way in the Promised Land.” She teaches writing in Israel and the United States

resolution that upgraded their status to observer state. He led a spirited Mass in a crowded Manger Square, which was bedecked with photomontages blending Christian iconography with images of Palestinians’ difficult daily reality. There he had lunch with families suffering particular hardships under Israeli occupation, and was serenaded by scores of children from the nearby Dheisheh refugee camp, home to some 12,000 people exiled from former family homes since the 1948 Arab-Israeli war. And then there was the pope’s strange invitation to Israel’s president, Shimon Peres, to meet with Mr. Abbas at the Vatican for a prayer “summit” for peace. Since the presidency of Israel is largely a figurehead position with no decision-making authority, this can only be described as an empty gesture

at best or, at worst, a move meant to underscore the widely held perception that the man actually responsible for negotiating on Israel’s behalf, Prime Minister Netanyahu, is the obstacle to peace. Back in the real world, parts of Israel still suffer recurrent rocket attacks. And while authorities have managed to foil a spate of attempted kidnappings by Palestinians of Israelis and the security wall has severely impacted the frequency of terrorist atrocities, Jews going about their daily lives in Israel are still under constant threat from their Palestinian neighbors. Despite all that, Israel has over the years released from its jails hundreds of convicted terrorists in order to encourage Palestinians to come to the negotiating table. Yet Mr. Abbas, who refuses to reciprocate in any way, gets the benefits of the pope’s “evenhandedness.” In no way can any of this encourage serious negotiations.

A Profile In Jewish Courage (Continued from Front Page)

and wrote a memoir of his wartime experience. It shows how utterly alone we Jews were during those years, with no state of our own and facing extermination as most nations closed their doors to us. ***** Roy Rogers, whose original surname was Rosenthal, was born in 1920. He lived with his parents and younger sister, Marianne, in an apartment in Vienna where he enjoyed a comfortable childhood. But when Hitler ascended to power in neighboring Germany, he saw Austrian anti-Semitism rear its vicious head. During his teens Rogers worked as an apprentice at an optometry firm with the hope of becoming an optometrist but his plans were dashed when Hitler annexed Austria to the Reich in March 1938. With uniformed Nazis swaggering in the streets, Rogers realized that “for the Jews there was no future here” and that he’d better get out. Previously he’d joined a youth organization that operated a training farm outside Vienna for young Jews intending to settle in Palestine. There he learned how to farm while still living part of the time in his parents’ apartment. He was in Vienna on November 9, 1938, when Kristallnacht erupted. He heard shouts outside the apartment, then a sharp rap on the door. His mother opened it. Two Gestapo officers stood outside. Knowing better than to resist them, she invited them in. They looked around the apartment and asked for her husband. He had gone on an errand, she said, and she didn’t know his whereabouts. Their eyes rested on the younger Rogers and they asked his age. Instinctively he replied “fifteen” though he was actually seventeen. “I was lucky that I looked young for my age,” Rogers wrote. “I later found out they arrested all Jewish males sixteen or older and took them to camps.” Sometime later Roy’s father returned home breathless, saying their synagogue had been torched while a mob cheered and police did nothing. He had melted into the crowd for anonymity and in doing so had avoided the Gestapo who had come to his apartment. In this manner Rogers and his father had been spared the Kristallnacht roundup that netted some 30,000 German and Austrian Jewish men. Rogers redoubled his efforts to flee Austria. He continued his agricultural training but also tapped into the “grapevine,” searching for any means to escape. In his desperation he even combed through American telephone directories, writing blindly to several people who shared his surname of Rosenthal asking if they could somehow help. No one ever responded. ***** Early in 1939, Rogers got a break. The British government was offering conditional entry visas for young people; thanks to his agricultural training, Roy qualified. A month later, with only a suitcase in hand, he went to Vienna’s central train station and there bid an emotional goodbye to his parents and younger sister. The scene would be etched in his memory for the rest of his life: his father’s somber, almost dazed, face; his mother weeping openly; his sister quietly standing by. He would never see his parents again. His father died shortly afterward of a heart attack and his mother perished in a concentration camp. His sister managed to emigrate to Palestine but it would take 27 years for them to reunite. Rogers was very tense at the start of the journey, fearing that at any moment Gestapo men might arrest him and take him off the train. When the train passed beyond Nazi-controlled territory, Roy finally felt a flood of relief. He would always remember crossing the Channel on a ferry, the train trip up to London, and checking in at Bloomsbury House, the Jewish refugee center that coordinated jobs and lodging for new arrivals. He began to settle in over the following months, appreciating his newfound freedom in England. But on September 1, 1939, the Nazis invaded Poland and England declared war on Germany. Rogers and 55,000 other refugees from Nazi oppression were suddenly classified as “enemy aliens” because of their German-Austrian origins. They were quickly rounded up and placed in internment camps. Rogers found himself interned on the Isle of Man off the western coast of England. Boredom, isolation and not knowing what was

Once he reaches age 20, and he did not marry, He says ‘Let his bones be shattered!’” While there is much to say about this Gemara, on the simplest level it indicates that the reverse is true – that Hashem waits for man to take action! Thus, while the Gemara (Sotah 2a) discusses the concept of a pre-ordained soul mate, apparently it is incumbent on the person to put in efforts to find him or her and is held responsible for failing to do so. Additionally, there is a known story related by the gabbai of the Steipler Gaon, zt”l, about someone who was a bachelor for many years asking the Steipler why he had not yet met his bashert. The rav answered him: “You most certainly met your bashert already and passed her up.” It certainly is difficult for some people to find a suitable mate, and, particularly, to decide on whom to choose, but this has much less to do with the Divine than with personality strengths and weaknesses. If one is having difficulty, besides praying, a person should obtain objective feedback from people he trusts to understand what role his own actions may be playing. Of course this is hard work and the feedback might be painful. However, honestly looking at one’s flaws is a positive way to move along in the shidduch process – and few things in life are more worthwhile.

Distorted Belief #4: I Need to Be 100% Sure I Am Marrying The Right Person This is irrational because it is impossible to be 100% sure about anything in life. True, there are people who feel 100% sure, but it is an illusion. What a person actually needs is a list of objective and subjective criteria that seem to make another a good choice as a life partner. Like an investment strategy, one should prepare this list in advance so that during times of stress and pressure, there is clarity from an earlier time. Subjective criteria should include: Do you feel a fondness for this person? Do you feel attracted to this person’s looks? Do you enjoy spending time with this person? Objective criteria should include: Do you share common life goals, or at least respect and endorse each other’s goals? Do you share similar values? Are you on the same page about where you will live, how to handle finances, parenting and child raising? Roles of men and women? As with every decision and investment, there is some risk. What is important is that there are enough positive factors that make the choice a good bet. Time is a factor as well. If one has been dating for three years, perhaps it is realistic to hold out for a person who scores high on all the categories in your list. However, if one has been dating for ten years, it is more reasonable to look for someone who scores well in most of the categories. Being realistic sounds the same as “settling for less” but it is not. The difference is not in fact, but in attitude. If a person resents settling and sees his

Mind Over Manners By Mrs. Rifka Schonfeld

Boys In The Back Equalizing Education Think about the perfect student, the one who sits quietly, takes notes, and participates when called on. Now, were you imagining a boy or a girl? Chances are, your image of a “perfect” student was female. Why? The attributes I mentioned – sitting quietly, participating when called on, and taking notes are noncognitive skills. These skills, which have nothing to do with a child’s intelligence, include: attentiveness, persistence, eagerness to learn, and the ability to sit still and work independently.

Cristina Hoff Summers pointed out in a February article for The New York Times, “As most parents know, girls tend to develop these skills earlier and more naturally than boys.” In essence, our educational system is “rigged” against boys. And because of this, regardless of their intellectual ability, boys receive lower grades than girls. In fact, Summers points out that teachers tend to rate boys as less proficient in all skills (math, reading, writing) than girls, but on stan-

or her potential mate as “second best,” this is a setup for disaster. Acceptance is different than settling. Acceptance means being at peace with a situation and resolving to learn, benefit from and grow from it, even if it was not what was originally planned. Do not allow yourself to marry anyone that you cannot see yourself accepting fully and growing to appreciate. (To Be Continued)

dardized tests, those same boys will score the same or better. Saying that our education system is biased against boys might be true, but you could argue that our workplaces, which require people to sit and focus for long periods of time, are also rigged against boys and their later mastery of those essential noncognitive skills. However, what’s also true is that as boys grow older, they have longer attention spans, can sit still for longer, and gain a greater ability to work independently. How can we, as parents and educators, make the learning process less unbalanced for our boys? Can we move them out of the back of the classroom? I believe we can. Here are some suggestions to help move our boys to the head of the class: More boy-friendly reading assignments. In literacy education, there are books that are labeled “boy books” or “girl books.” And, yep, you guessed it – most books that are incorporated into curricula would typically be labeled “girl books.” Instead of the more classic works of literature, curricula should include science fiction, fantasy, sports, and espionage genres. Even if the boys have not yet fully developed their “noncognitive skills” they will be

FAMILY ISSUES Chronicles of Crisis IN OUR COMMUNITIES Avodas Hashem, Emunas Hashem… And Sholom Bayis: A Win-Win Combo Dear Rachel, Unlike the sound-minded widow who wrote to you to complain about her daughter who is not as open with her as she would like (Chronicles, May 16), my daughter and I enjoy an exceptionally close relationship. We would also visit one another frequently – that is, until recently when she and her family moved out of town. The company our sonin-law has long been employed with relocated, and since his employer generously picked up a great chunk of their moving expenses, their decision to move was practically a no-brainer. I especially miss having my daughter close by. Of course, we are in touch every day, and in each conversation she pleads for us to join them. She argues that our house has become too “big” for us (we’ve lived in the same house since our children, who are now on their own, were little) and that downsizing would make life so much easier for us – in more ways than one. She certainly has a point and I might have actually given the idea some serious consideration were it not that my husband is adamant about staying where we are. He can’t fathom moving away from our beloved neighborhood, one we have been a part of for over half a century. Truth is, our neighbors are like family, the shul we’ve been members of for more years than we can count is a 5-minute walk away, my husband has a nightly shiur he’s been part of forever, and even the walls of our home are like old friends. I must admit that the thought of moving to a strange place and starting anew at our stage in life (close to retirement) doesn’t thrill me either. On the other hand, we have only one daughter. Our two sons don’t live close by, and though we get along with them fine too, it’s our daughter whom we’ve formed a special bond with. How do I convince my daughter that we are bet-

ter off where we are... or do you believe it might be worth pressuring my husband to reconsider his stance? Pulled in both directions Dear Pulled, Being close to your children even after the apron strings are cut is a priceless and beautiful thing. But everything has its limitations. Your daughter has a life, baruch Hashem, and so do you. You were fortunate to have her living close by, but nothing stays the same forever. Both of you need to adapt to this latest change in your lives. Your daughter’s desire to have you living near her is understandable – as is your husband’s wish to stay put. You, as mothers often do, find yourself caught in the middle. The following story might help you put things in perspective. In the city of Cracow in Poland there once lived a talmid chacham who eked out a living as a baker. As such, he couldn’t afford to immerse himself in learning to the extent that he would have preferred. A wealthy man who knew of his scholarly ability came along and offered the baker a weekly sum to enable him to devote his days to learning. The baker accepted the offer and with true devotion and enthusiasm applied himself to the task of studying Torah in the bais medrash all day long. This arrangement went on for some time when suddenly one day the baker approached his benefactor to say that he wished to return to his job as a baker. Taken aback, the gevir would not hear of it. Besides considering it to be a waste of the talmid chacham’s time to labor in a bakery, he claimed a deal to be a deal and saw no reason to break their Yissachar/Zevulun agreement. They decided to present their case to the holy Megale Amukos – the famed Kabbalist, R’ Nosson Nota Shapira, who also questioned why a talmid

From The Desk Of Devorah Adler Dear Devorah, My husband likes to take a nap after the Shabbos meal. Ever since we gave our 4-year-old son a large ball for his birthday, he plays with it constantly, even when my husband is trying to nap. We don’t know how to ask him to stop playing ball without seeming like selfish parents. Do you have any advice for us? Loving Parents Dear Parents, I would like to share with you a wonderful anecdote taught by the late Dr. Chaim Ginott, an expert in parenting skills who was also a gifted comedian, brilliant lecturer and teacher. During one of his parenting workshop lectures, he shared a humorous story with his audience entitled, “The Bouncing Ball.” It goes like this:

A family had a routine whereby every Shabbos afternoon from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. Daddy would take a nap on the living room sofa, Mommy would read and the children would rest. All of this changed when they gave their little boy Myron, a big yellow bouncing ball. That first Shabbos Myron goes outside to the enclosed backyard and begins bouncing his ball against the house. Daddy hears it, gets up from the sofa, puts on his shoes and goes outside. “Myron,” he says, “do you think you could stop bouncing the ball so Daddy can take a nap?” “Yes Daddy,” Myron replies. Daddy goes back inside the house, takes off his shoes and reclines on the sofa. Just as he is about to close his eyes, he hears the “boom-boom-boom” of the bouncing ball. For the second time, Daddy walks to the backyard and says, “Myron, didn’t I just ask you to stop bouncing your ball?”

Devorah Adler is a social worker in southern California. She can be reached via magazine@jewishpress.com.

chacham with such vast potential would choose to forfeit the gevir’s generous offer and return to the hot ovens. The baker argued that when he worked in the bakery he’d pray every day for the wheat to grow properly and for a successful harvest. Then he would pray for the threshing (separating the heads from the stalks) to go well. When it came time for winnowing (separating the grain from the chaff), he beseeched the heavens yet again for a natural breeze to help the process along. “With the flour ready to be worked into a dough,” continued the talmid chacham/baker, “I was mispallel that the dough be supple and rise properly, and for the oven to turn out palatable breads worthy of sale. “I still needed to pray to Hashem,” he added, “to send customers to buy the goods, as well as to savor them. In this way, I found myself relying on the Ribono Shel Olam throughout the day, for not a minute passed that I did not need to depend on Him for His chesed.” The talmid chacham concluded by explaining that with the generous support from the gevir, he had come to depend on his regular weekly stipend. Granted, it had facilitated his learning Torah all day, but – “I feel that I’ve become lax in my faith. My emunah is not what it once was...” At the time, the Megale Amukos had been about to vacate his position as Rav of Cracow, having been offered a post elsewhere. After presiding over this Din Torah, he resolved to stay on in Cracow — in a place where disputes consisted of the affluent insistent on sustaining talmidei chachamim, and where a talmid chacham was willing to give up the exalted privilege of learning without worry of a livelihood — in order to strengthen his emunas Hashem. In the same way your daughter made a move that was in the best interest of her husband, it is your role to support your husband in his avodas Hashem, in a place that has proven to be suitable for the purpose of fulfilling his spiritual requirements. Upsetting the apple cart so that you can live in closer proximity to your daughter might not end up being in your husband’s best interest. It would therefore be in your best interest to continue enjoying the closeness you share with your daughter (with appreciation for the daily chats), while looking forward to future visits (and believing that everything happens for a reason). Be up front with your daughter about having made up your mind to stay put for now. Or you can just send her this column. Wishing readers everywhere a delightful and enlightening Shavuos!

“No, Daddy, you asked me if I could stop bouncing my ball,” Myron replies with an innocent look. Daddy picks Myron up in his arms, gives him a big hug and says, “Myron, if you stop bouncing your ball and let Daddy nap for one hour, we will go to the park when I wake up. How does that sound?” “Okay. I can’t wait to go to the park, Daddy.” Daddy returns to the house and for the third time he reclines on the sofa and closes his eyes. Once more, he hears the “boom-boom-boom” of the bouncing ball in the backyard; but wait – now there is total silence as Myron has ceased bouncing his ball. What just happened? Dr. Ginott explained that treating our children with the same respect we treat others will generate their cooperation with us. When using the essential “ABCs” of parenthood – Asking, Bargaining, Choosing/Compromising, and so on – we need to remember that our children respond better when we give them the same freedom of choice we give ourselves. Even after Daddy asked Myron to stop bouncing his ball and then made a bargain with him for something he liked (going to the park) in exchange for letting Daddy take a nap, Myron still wanted the choice of deciding when he would stop bouncing his ball. It’s similar to when we have a strict diet to adhere to, and our doctor says, “Only one small slice of

FAMILY ISSUES Life Is A Game When You REFRAME By Tova Younger I was riding the bus with my son; our plan was to get off one stop later than usual for a quick errand, but out of habit, he pressed for our usual stop. “We’ll get off at the next stop. Sorry!” I apologized to driver. Not surprisingly, a barrage of annoyance tumbled out of the driver. “Why did you make me stop here? Be more careful! What do you think?” As we exited I apologized again, but really would have like to ask him, “What’s your problem? Did I cause you pain, loss of money, embarrassment? I merely delayed you about three seconds! So what?” Clearly, reframing could fill his life with joy. The barking at passengers, reacting in anger and making nasty comments had to be making him sick. His life could be different by just changing the way he thinks. Get into gear by PARKing properly! P – prioritize. A person can’t reframe without knowing how to think, and what his or her goals should be. Keep in mind the ultimate goal: coming closer to Hashem and bringing out the best in each person we meet. A – anticipate. One must always hope for the best, but anticipate and plan for the worst. For example, you check on your children twenty minutes after bedtime. You expect they are fast asleep, but find them noshing chips and reading! Whoa! Fireworks! A big hullaballoo. But what if you take a second to think before entering their room? Try, “Hmmm, it’s awfully quiet. I wonder if they are swinging from the chandelier…” Carefully open the door and see them peacefully in bed, albeit reading. Calmly announce how wonderful it is to see them making the most of their day, give an extra kiss, and remove the book. They go to sleep happy. No guilt over ending their day on a sour note. Tomorrow is time enough to employ some preventative medicine or disciplinary action. R – reframe. See below. K – Kavei el Hashem. Remember that He will determine the outcome; we must simply do our best. The Mesilas Yesharim discusses this in Chapter 19, Weighing of Saintliness. He defines what is necessary for us to arrive at a proper plan of action. 1. Character development for optimum response. 2. Consideration of all possibilities from all angles. 3. React, bearing in mind that Hashem determines the outcome.

What exactly is reframing? Simply stated, it’s a technique that allows us to understand and evaluate a situation in a different frame of mind. R – Rein in thoughts: stop instantly upon perceiving a negative spin. E – Exaggerate, laugh it off: make it larger than life, then be grateful that it is less. F – Forget it: ponder another topic, sing a song. R – Reconsider, only now you are calmer, relaxed; develop a plan. A – Always: practice with minor episodes, make reframing a habit; when we are angry, rationality eludes us! M – ‘magination – use it! Pretend the offending party apologized, brought roses, expressed sincere regret! E – Everybody can! It’s doable and so worthwhile! In the above-noted example, our bus driver could start his workday thinking, “Today’s goal is to bring good cheer into each passenger’s day!” When something goes wrong, he can recall mistakes he has made. If they are indeed few and far between, if he is very careful to avoid any extra energy expenditure with anyone he interacts with, he can be grateful for the wonderful education and upbringing he was fortunate to receive, and pray for others to grow as well. If he is not in that category, but is rather as human as the rest of us, he can remind himself of how he would like others to react to his shortfalls, and model that behavior! Those are techniques we can all use. Here are some additional thought patterns I regularly use to reframe. Evaluate them, and create your own: Reduced sentence – Imagine yourself in court being tried for some wrongdoings Initially, the verdict is death or serious illness. You beg for mercy. Little by little the punishment is lowered – minor illness, accident, dental problem, robbery… finally it is reduced to: receiving an insult. Wow! What a good lawyer you had. Celebrate! Viewed in this light, the insult need not bother you. Elephant and the six blind men – An old parable wherein a sightless group attempts to study an elephant. Each touches a different part: tail, trunk, leg, tusk, ear, body. Each says (in order), “Ah, the elephant is like a rope/hose/tree trunk/sword/floppy sheet/wall.” Each will have a different idea of what an elephant is, and each will be certain he is right.

Don’t we do that in many situations? So reframe, expand your mindset and put a positive spin on it all. Forgetting has become a major plague. When someone is derelict, don’t get upset. Judge favorably; in all probability the protagonist simply forgot. By the way, do you ever forget? Rechilus and lashon hora are among Hashem’s most despised aveiros. Be risk-aversive; reframing will distance you very quickly! Mistakes I have made – An acquaintance of mine recently borrowed a book. She lives a few hours away from me, so we agreed that she would return it to her neighbor, a mutual friend. Sounded simple, but said neighbor was not home and the book was left near the door. My first thought was, how irresponsible! My reframe thoughts were, why didn’t I give more clear directions? And why do I think I would never have done such a thing – I probably did, at some time or another. Exchange – Make use of your imagination for this one. Just imagine that the deed occurred differently or something else was said. After all, a lot of our antagonists are our loved ones, who mean us no harm. Paper or tissues carelessly left around? Exchange their reality – now they are love notes. Didn’t receive an invitation that you thought you would get? Exchange the names on any invitation for the names you want. Your real invitation probably got lost – it happens! Depending on how close you are, just go by and wish mazal tov – or be glad you have the evening off! Wish them well from the comfort of your home. Start with a decision to accept responsibility for your reactions. Your thoughts determine whether or not you will be happy. Just remember, as you catch yourself falling into a negative thought pattern, to reassess and reframe. Leave behind: R – resentment E – envy F – fatigue R – rage A –anxiety M – misery E – embarrassment You’ll become: R – relaxed E – easygoing F – fun R – resourceful A – adventurous M – managerial E – elevated

Protect Your Family From Harmful UV Rays (StatePoint) Ultraviolet (UV) rays are a danger to skin and eyes year-round, playing a contributing factor to skin damage, skin cancer and eye disorders like cataracts. With May being UV Awareness Month, it’s a great time to take steps to protect your family. “The more time you spend outdoors without protecting your eyes, the greater your risk for ocular damage,” says Dr. James Winnick, an optometrist with VSP Vision Care, the largest not-for-profit vision benefits company in the United States. Rather than avoid the problem entirely by seeking refuge inside, take steps to mitigate your risk in the sun. Consider Risk Factors While all people need to protect their eyes from UV radiation, some populations are more sensitive than others to the sun. For example, children don’t yet have the natural protection in their eyes that adults have, so they get most of their exposure before they are 18. Additionally, people living with diabetes have increased light sensitivity. No matter who you are, protecting your eyes out-

doors is crucial, say experts. “One of the most convenient ways to ensure you’re constantly protecting your eyes from UV rays and excess light is to opt for photochromic lenses, which are lenses that darken automatically to changing sunlight conditions when outdoors,” says Winnick. “These lenses can be especially useful for kids and adults who have trouble remembering to switch from their regular glasses to sunglasses throughout the day.”

sunsync starts darkening within seconds of UV exposure and returns to clear within just minutes of going indoors. More information about sunsync lenses can be found at www.vsp.com/sunsync.

Protection for Entire Family Photochromic lenses are a great way to ensure everyone in the family is getting automatic and constant protection from UV radiation – whether it’s playing in the backyard or walking from the car into the office. And an added benefit is that your eyes will be much more comfortable in all light conditions, helping reduce eye strain and squinting.

Reflected Light is a Concern Sunlight is reflected off water, sidewalks, buildings – almost everything – and it goes in every direction. While sunglasses and photochromic lenses protect from UV light passing through the front of the lenses, a new trend in eye protection takes on the back side of lenses as well. A special anti-reflective treatment can now be added to the back of lenses that helps prevent UV radiation from reflecting off of them and into your eyes. The great news is that some lens brands offer this “backside UV” treatment at no additional cost depending on the options you choose for your new photochromic lenses.

Choose Wisely It’s important to look for a brand of photochromic lenses that both darken and fade back quickly. For example, a new type of photochromic lenses called

Don’t wait for UV exposure to get the best of your eye health. Just as you use sunblock, you should have some protection for your eyes throughout the day. This May, take steps to better protect your family.

FAMILY ISSUES Schonfeld Continued from p.F1 more likely to read subjects that interest them. Of course, this does not mean that all books should be geared towards boys; rather, more books should be selected with their interests in mind. More recess. Boys and girls need time to run around and shed their excess energy. In fact, research shows that children are able to better concentrate after they have had some exercise. So, how do you maximize boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; learning? You let them run around the yard first. When they get back into class, their brains will be primed to learn. More hands-on learning. While itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true that boys lag behind girls in noncognitive skills such as sitting still and attending, this is no indication of their intelligence. Therefore, if we create hands-on

learning opportunities (which do not rely on sitting still), we will be giving boys a method through which to learn without relying on those noncognitive skills. For example, instead of talking about the lifecycle and anatomy of a plant, dissect a seed and use that hands-on activity as a jumping off point for discussion. Single-sex classrooms. Our yeshivas have single-sex classrooms, but that is not enough to ensure that boys will learn up to their capabilities. Those single-sex classroom must be run based on the above knowledge: boys read different material, they need to run around a little, and they benefit from handson learning. Our classrooms and schools are already separate. Now, we need to make an effort to teach to our boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; strengths. Boys and Reading Boys do not read at nearly the same level as girls. Reading Rockets, an organization devoted to promoting lifelong learning, states the situation bluntly: The statistics are consistent: Young male readers lag behind their female counterparts. According to the Progress in International Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS) in 2001, fourth-grade girls in all of the 30-plus participating countries scored higher in reading literacy than fourth-grade boys by a statistically significant amount. Why do we care so much about reading? Why is it important to get our boys reading to their greatest

potential? The most basic reason is that reading is the most important skill that people have in order to enhance their intelligence. Through reading, people improve their vocabularies and memories, become better writers, and even relieve stress. On a more practical level, literacy levels are correlated with financial success. In sum, we need to ensure that our boys are reading because their lives will be more fulfilling, relaxed, and comfortable. Boys and ADHD Another, often less discussed issue with boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; reading is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). We all know that reading takes concentration â&#x20AC;&#x201C; without it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get to the end of a sentence. What most people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize is that while it is a common behavioral disorder that affects between 8-10% of school age children, boys are three times more likely than girls to be diagnosed with ADHD. Of course, only a tiny fraction of boys have ADHD, but this fraction is significantly larger than the fraction of girls that have ADHD. This can also account for the differences in proficiency in boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; reading scores. Therefore, if your child son is unable to focus, is easily distracted, and often fidgets, consider getting him tested for ADHD. His lack of reading skills could be attributed to a surmountable learning disability. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s get those boys out of the back of the classroom and living up to their fullest potential!

I found the article by Lois Greene Stone, “Every Day For Mothers,” very touching and a beautiful tribute to her mother. But in some ways it could also have been a tribute to my mother. My mother, Irene Klass, was unlike any other. Without the benefit of a college education she was the most brilliant woman I have ever known.  Even though she grew up in a very difficult home, she was one of the kindest and most loving of people. I was fortunate to have many friends as I was growing up, but my mother was my best friend.  And I didn’t hesitate to tell that to one and all.  In fact, many was the time that friends would say to me, “We aren’t telling you something because you will tell your mother.”  And my answer was always the same, “Yes, I will tell my mother, I tell her everything, but she won’t tell any of your mothers or anyone else, for that matter.”  She instilled in me and my sister the Torah attributes of loving kindness, do unto others as you would have them do unto you, cleanliness is next to G-dliness, prayer, honesty, if a job is worth doing, it is worth doing well, and the list goes on and on.

But she taught us these things mainly by example. The words of Eishet Chayil all applied to her. She was rewarded with long life and the nachas to see her children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren all following in the footsteps she and my father had carved so many years before. As Lois said in her article, I hope she knew how much I loved her and how precious she was to me.

T O R A H & H A S H K A FA

The Gift Of Life Life is what you make of it. And if our lives are defined by Torah, then these weeks of Sefira are all about making the most of it.

We all know the famous Gemara (Shabbos 88a): At Har Sinai, Hashem turned the mountain on top of Bnei Yisroel like a barrel and said, “If you accept the Torah, good. But if not, here will be your burial spot.” This is based on the pasuk “Vayisyatzvu b’tachtis hahar – and they stood at the foot of the mountain” (Yisro 19:17); in which Rav Avdimi Bar Chama translates the word tachtis as meaning “underneath.” Let’s start with a simple question: Why does the Gemara refer to the upside-down mountain as a barrel? Better yet – we visualize the mountain being suspended over Klal Yisroel, ready to squash them. But if it were really like an upside-down barrel, then they would be trapped inside, not squashed. What was the point of trapping them? I heard an incredible explanation on this Gemara from Rav Yehuda Wagschal of the Mir Yeshiva in Yerushalayim. He cited the Chasam Sofer who refers to another passage in the Gemara (Shabbos 105b) that says if someone is lazy and delays in eulogizing a talmid chacham properly, that person deserves to be buried alive! A terrible fate, but what is the connection to the sin? (Pardon me if this is a little morbid but it is a Gemara and we need to understand it as this insight is imperative for our personal understanding of Shavuos.) How could one ever bury someone alive? It’s only possible if the persecutor does not consider this person’s life to be a life. He is not granting him the ability to even die because, in his book, the person is not really alive in the first place. A person who does not eulogize a

talmid chacham properly shows that he does not value the Torah and the accomplishments of a talmid chacham. This crime is punishable by being buried alive. The Gemara is teaching us a fundamental concept – the very definition of life is Torah and the value we place on it. One who does not value Torah is not alive and therefore deserves to be buried alive – he doesn’t need to die as he is nothing more than a walking corpse. Every night in Maariv, we say “ki heim chayeinu – for [the Torah] is our life” – literally! That’s what Hashem essentially said at Sinai, “If you don’t accept the Torah, I will put this barrel over you, burying you alive, because not accepting Torah means you don’t value it. Hence, you are already as good as dead!” Pretty scary. After WWII, the situation of talmud Torah in England was very dismal. There were many young children left without parents and no one to teach them Torah. Rav Yechezkel Abramsky, zt”l (Chief Dayan of the London Beis Din, 1934-1951) saw the great need to open a yeshiva to preserve Torah in the youth in England. Food was scarce and money was tight but that did not deter Rav Abramsky from opening the yeshiva and raising the funds. Late one Thursday, as he was finishing his day collecting, he turned to his associates and asked, “Is there anyone else we did not approach?” “No,” they replied. “Are you sure?” asked R’ Abramsky. “Well, there is one wealthy secular Jew but don’t waste your time. They said once you say the word ‘yeshiva’ or ‘Torah’ he

PTI TORAH BY RABBI BARUCH BODENHEIM will dismiss you.” “What is his phone number?” asked R’ Abramsky, as he picked up the phone to dial. “My name is Yechezkel Abramsky. I’m calling about a special initiative to save Jewish children. This is a matter of life and death and I would like to meet with you.” “Okay, come on over,” replied the man. He immediately went over and the man invited him in. “Yes, please tell me what is this urgent situation you are dealing with?” said the wealthy man. “The war has left us desolate and there are many young children who are not receiving any Jewish education in England. I started a yeshiva for these young boys...” explained R’ Abramsky. “A yeshiva!?? You told me you are dealing with a situation of life and death!” exclaimed the wealthy man. “Please leave immediately!” he ordered and Rav Abramsky left. Late the next Friday night, the phone rings in this wealthy man’s home. He answers. “Hello? What is the emergency that I am being telephoned at this hour?” “This is Yechezkel Abramsky I am calling about a matter of…” “--But it’s Shabbos now! You can’t use the telephone on Shabbos!” exclaimed the man. “True. But for saving lives you must violate Shabbos and I told you that this is a matter of life and death. I am saving young Jewish children’s lives and I need your help with my yeshiva!” replied R’ Abramsky. He got the check. But that’s not the point of the story. R’ Abramsky understood that Torah is literally our life and without it we are dead. It is no wonder that the two people whom we associate with Matan Torah are Rus and Yisro, both gerei tzedek. Megillas Rus is read on Shavuos and Yisro is the name of the parsha that deals with Matan Torah. These two sections of Tanach are symbols of people who valued Torah so much that they gave up everything they had - their entire lives - in order to embrace it and become a part of Klal Yisroel.

This concept of valuing Torah and recognizing that it is life and without it we are the living dead, explains the Sfas Emes, is the reason men stay up all night on Shavuos to learn Torah. Yes, we might be more productive if we went to sleep at midnight, awoke at 7:00 a.m., davened and then learned the rest of the day – minus time for a Yom Tov meal. But we really want to express our love and need for Torah, and so we stay up all night. We refer to the Yom Tov of Shavuos in our davening as “Z’man Matan Toraseinu, the time Hashem is giving us our Torah.” Yet the Gemara (Shabbos 88a) refers to Shavuos as the day of kabalas haTorah, when we received the Torah. Why the switch? Matan Toraseinu is referring to Hashem – the giver. Kabalas HaTorah is referring to us – the receivers. On Shavuos, Hashem is literally delivering the Torah and all that accompanies it: our and our children’s ability to learn it, which chavrusas we will learn with, rabbeim we and children will get, the ability to focus on and retain our Torah learning, etc. All of this is decided on Shavuos. There is nothing inhibiting Hashem from giving – as His goodness is the very purpose of Creation. And the greatest good He has to offer is His Torah. But it is we, the receivers, who determine how much of it we will actually receive. Hashem is the fundraiser’s dream – He hands out a blank check and we fill in the amount. The amount of the check is solely determined by how much we want, value and love the Torah. It’s dependent on the degree of our acceptance. Life is what you make of it. And if our lives are defined by Torah, then Shavuos is the greatest gift. It is the day on which we become alive. May we each personally accept the Torah this Shavuos with tremendous thirst and yearning to know and follow the will of Hashem. And may we be blessed with all the special blessings of the Torah.

T O R A H & H A S H K A FA One who loves can buy a factorymade knick-knack for his partner, but a personal hand-made gift is infinitely more precious. BY SHAYA WINIARZ

Serving Hashem – Your Own Way

I

n keeping with the name of its parent-sefer (Bamidbar – lit., in the desert), this week’s parsha continues detailing the accounts of Bnei Yisrael as they traveled through the wilderness. The Mishkan was finally complete, and the Torah now describes the dedication of the Mizbeyach. Each tribe’s nasi came forward with his offering, wishing to donate in honor of the inauguration. Interestingly, all 12 brought the same offering! This in and of itself wouldn’t be so surprising if not for the fact that the content of the offering was quite varied and detailed. “One silver bowl, its weight a hundred and thirty shekalim; and one silver basin of seventy shekalim; both of them filled with fine flour mixed with oil for a meal offering; one gold ladle… one bull… one ram… one sheep… one he-goat.” Subsequent to describing the offering, the Torah – which is notoriously ungenerous with its words – goes on to repeat itself 12 times, associating each nasi individually with his dedicatory gift. The two questions that beg to be addressed are as follows: Firstly, how did the nisiim all come to bring the exact same offering? Secondly, how can we justify the Torah’s uncommon display of verbosity? Wouldn’t it suffice to record the entire offering just once? The Ramban provides two answers. The first is fairly well known. “All the leaders brought on the same day this offering upon which they agreed together. [However,] it was impossible that one should not precede his friend, so G-d honored those [tribes] that had precedence regarding the divisions. However, G-d wished to [honor each one] so He mentioned each offering on its day.” What the Ramban is saying is that the nisiim didn’t just happen to decide to bring the same offering. Each item represented a deeper, underlying idea, and when the nisiim thought it out together they agreed on what would be most appropriate to

include. However, so as not to disrespect one’s involvement over his fellow’s, Hashem listed all 12. The Ramban then goes on to reference (what my research bore out to be) an extremely lengthy Midrash. Contrary to the first answer of the Ramban, the Midrash describes how all the nisiim came to bring the same offering independent of each other! The nasi of Reuven had one intention when he brought the 130 shekel-weight silver bowl, the nasi of Shimon had a different intention, and the nasi of Yissachar had yet a third purpose! Similarly, the gold ladle brought by Zevulun’s nasi was brought for a different reason than the ladle brought by the nasi of Asher. Thus, although all the offerings were outwardly identical, each nasi had his own underlying kavanos which led him to decide what to bring. However, if you’re following the give and take, you might have realized that we have not yet addressed both of our questions. While the Midrash that the Ramban quoted definitely explains how the offerings came to be identical, it does not explain why the Torah felt the need to repeat itself 12 times. True, the offerings stemmed from several diverse rationales. True, the deep concepts represented in the gifts varied from nasi to nasi. But none of these things are seen in the actual gifts. Each nasi brought the same silver bowl, the same gold ladle, and the same hegoat. If one were charged with providing a description of the actual gifts that were brought by each nasi, the list would be monotonously repetitious. Why then, according to this Midrash, does the Torah find it necessary to reiterate the same thing over and over again? I believe the answer is as follows. In each mitzvah that one performs, there are 2 parts of the person involved: the body and the heart. A mitzvah is made up of

both a physical, concrete action and also an intangible, heart-based devotion. Throughout the ages, our leaders have taught that the physical aspect is primary. R’ Chaim Volozhiner famously stated “A Jew can eat his matzah with the greatest dveykus in the world, but it won’t make him the slightest bit more holy if it’s not Pesach.” We all know that the emphasis must be on the proper fulfillment of the action. However, be that as it may, an unfortunate side-effect of stressing one aspect is that we often come to neglect (or altogether forget) the other aspect. Rachmonoh liba ba’ee – Hashem wants our hearts. Hashem wants us to dedicate ourselves loyally to His Service. When a servant loves his master, he channels his love creatively to find ways to please his master. He would never leave the framework of what his master desires him to do, and he definitely would never go against his master’s wishes. However, a loyal servant would love to find a way to give something of his own to his master. But what can a servant give of his own? All his actions are scripted; his job is pre-delineated. The answer is that within the predetermined framework, one can find ways to leave his own personal mark. One who loves can buy a factory-made knick-knack for his partner, but a personal hand-made gift is infinitely more precious. I think now we can understand why Hashem lists every single one of the nisiim’s gifts. Each one was a specially-crafted present, made with a tremendous amount of forethought, devotion and most importantly – heart. Hashem

didn’t look at the dedicatory offerings and see 12 identical gifts. Hashem saw 12 distinct individuals, each one looking for a way within the Torah framework to offer something of himself. Each prince set his heart to find the best way he could serve Hashem; each one connected in his own way. This is why the Torah lists each gift. Hashem is trying to convey that while the offerings may appear to be identical, each one is coming from a different, loyal heart and consequently is considered special, unique, and valuable. I believe this lesson applies in our lives as well. Oftentimes we don’t attach enough significance to our avodas Hashem. A contributing factor, perhaps, is the erroneous belief that there is no singularity in our actions. The lofty soul of man desires to be creative and unique. Sometimes we convince ourselves that “I daven and my friend davens. We both said the exact same words.” Or perhaps, “We both gave the same dollar to tzeddakah. There is no difference between us.” Even if we don’t consciously think these thoughts, on some level we don’t recognize the uniqueness of our actions and we become disheartened. Hashem repeated the nissim offerings 12 times (!) to counteract this misconception. You are unique. There never was anybody like you, there is nobody like you, and there never will be somebody like you. The heart and intent you put into your service of Hashem is special. It is different than anything anyone else can offer. Again, Heaven forbid that we should ever step out of the concrete, physical framework provided by the Torah. But within that framework there is no limit to the singularity and uniqueness you can offer in your avodah. May we each merit serving Hashem in our own special way and thereby make Hashem proud of each and every one of us. Shaya Winiarz is a student of the Rabbinical Seminary of America (a.k.a.

ADVICE & OPINION Romance novels and soap operas do not portray real life.

Confronting Undue Influences Dear Dr. Respler: I am a frum man with a wife and several children. My wife is a balabuste and takes adequate care of our children. My problem is that although we are quite frum, my wife has a great attraction to soap operas and romance novels. We never had a TV in the house, so my wife bought a tiny computer that she keeps in our bedroom closet. She pulls it out during the day to watch these soap operas, unrealistic movies and other shows – and she reads the romance novels the whole night. She also reads the novels on Shabbos instead of spending time with the children and me. So as to ensure that the children do not see her reading material, she uses book covers. The end result of all this is that we hardly communicate. I feel that my wife, who is a wonderful person, lives in a world of fantasy. Her unrealistic expectations of relationships affect all aspects of our personal life. She compares me to her romance “heroes,” and I seem to always fall short of her expectations. I try to be a loving husband, remembering to buy her gifts, i.e. perfumes and chocolates for Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day (which are non-Jewish concepts to me). Baruch Hashem we have parnassah, and I try to give my wife everything. She has full-time help in our beautiful home, along with beautiful clothes. But mindful that our children are young and that our family will hopefully grow, I can’t bear my wife’s values. I can’t understand why she isn’t satisfied with all that Hashem has given us, and feels the need to fill her time and mind with this garbage. Suffering Husband

Dear Suffering Husband: You are not alone in your dilemma. The damage done by these shows and books is incalculable. I know of a store in a frum community that sells an inordinate amount of books of this nature to frum women. Additionally, it is incredible how many books like these are taken out of our local libraries and brought into frum homes. Romance novels and soap operas

do not portray real life. Soap operas are stories about people with little moral values who are forever engaging in illicit relationships. The concept of being an “eizer k’negdo,” a wife who is loyal to and supportive of her husband, is not espoused in this genre. Romance novels tend to have the same harmful themes.

ADVICE & OPINION

over cof fee BY RACHEL BLUTH

UPS Delivers!

I

t is now official; we have become a three-party people, comprised of singles, marrieds and “career daters.”

Ten or twelve years ago, when I was actively involved in shadchanus, most of my clientele consisted of 30-to 40-year-old people. Sadly, most of these people are still seeking life partners today. The young people with whom I worked, those who were in the 20-25 year age range, have almost all found their soul mates, married and have families today. Yet, a vast majority from my client base who were then 30-40-year olds, are still “in the parsha” today, and some are currently over 50 – and they are still holding on tight to that well-worn laundry list of demands!   In speaking to other shadchanim over the years, regarding the great difficulties that have beset the profession and dulled the efforts and success rate for making real-life matches, many frightening similarities emerge.  Some of the top complaints have been Internet dating sites, young women opting to pursue higher education in order to attain better paying and higher qualifying positions in the work force – which makes them marriage-marketable in their mid to late twenties, men who pick and choose until well into their late thirties before becoming serious about commitment and parents who are either unyielding in their expectations, controlling or too rigid and demanding. Many of the shadchanim have watched their clientele dwindle while others have given up and shut their file cabinets in frustration.  And so, the numbers of singles and older unmarrieds has risen to crisis proportions.  Over the years, I’ve spoken at a handful of singles events, and observed first hand

the oncoming epidemic of a “singles Geriatric population” in the making.  At the end of each such event, there is always a question and answer session, publicly or in private, and a troubling pattern often immerges. What first catches the eye is the “smell of the hunt” in the room, men on the prowl for fresh blood, women (always less in number) scanning the topography for new prospects – and there rarely are any new prospects.  The air of futility and disappointment is almost always present and rarely is there a connection made at the functions that I’ve attended.  At one or two of them, I recognized almost all of the same faces, and the questions and statements made were also always the same.  These were the “career daters,” the single seekers who will be attending such gatherings until their teeth fall out and their hair turns white.  Oh, I can hear the collective “chas vesholom” you’re mentally uttering in my direction, but the truth remains that after a certain age, say almost 40 to close to 50, the odds kind of point in that direction!  The best time for successful coupling is, as I see it, in the 19-25 year range, when young people have a greater desire to meet challenges, make commitments, be willing to face any hurdles or struggle to build a home jointly with a spouse, and are more realistic and flexible in their expectations of a life partner. Thus, they are better able to adapt and be more optimistic in their quest to find their zivug.  Sadly, the same cannot be said for those who’ve done the dance for ten, twenty or thirty years before deciding that they will, forever, be twenty

in the mating and dating game. I see guys who are forty and fifty, balding, thicker around the middle with the same “requirements” in a mate as they had when they were twenty. When I try to point out that they are no longer the same as they were then, something clicks off behind their eyes and they appear to be listening to some ethereal musack (elevator music) that only they can hear.  Actually, there is one requirement which has changed in some cases, and that is that some of the men now want their prospective mates to make a considerable livelihood, bear children and keep them in the style of living they cannot seem to attain!  So much for being realistic…or has senility already begun to take root?  The women in this age group have different expectations, equally unrealistic, and different character modifications.  If these ladies are professionals, they seem to have lost a great deal of their femininity, so much so that they appear somewhat hard, unreachable and extremely demanding.  Gone is the soft, sweet and smiling demeanor of the once twenty-year-old, and in her place now resides a tough, unyielding and almost masculine female who feels entitled to everything she feels she deserves.  Steely-eyed and determined not to see the crow’s feet beginning to form at the corners of her eyes, or the ever growing number of silvery strands hiding amongst her thinning brown locks, she still sees herself as that young and entitled twenty-year-old.  And then there’s the wonderful story I recently read about a shidduch of the unlikeliest sort!  A UPS deliveryman, Terry Spiers, whose route takes him through Crown Heights, made his first shidduch earlier this year.  It started two years ago when Spiers began talking to one of the education non-profit staffers on his regular route. The woman told him about her 21-year-old daughter.

ADVICE & OPINION The Person Behind The Chair... And Beyond

Professional Disrespect BY ANN NOVICK

W

hen our loved ones pass on, we often want to do something to memorialize them. We want to choose an area that epitomizes their life and their values. We desire a lasting memory, so that everyone can remember who they were and how they lived their lives. Some of us may choose to make a donation to the society that looks for a cure for the disease they had. Our hope is that our donation will prevent others from suffering in the same way. Others may wish to endow a scholarship to a place of study that reflects their loved one’s past or reflects their love of the institution. Whichever way we choose to memorialize those we love, we expect our wishes to be honored. However, just because we are donating – usually substantial amounts – to an organization or charity does not guarantee that our specific wishes will be followed. I have discovered it is wise to presume nothing and make sure everything you want is understood, and is in writing – just as you would with every other contract you enter into. It may even be a good idea to have the ombudsman’s (who deals with the institution) name and phone number in case there is a problem. Do not enter into these situations with naivety and goodwill or you may experience exactly what this well spouse did. Shana wanted a lasting memorial for her husband. He had dedicated his life to the university where he had been employed for thirty-six years. He had

loved teaching, and working with his students was his joy in life. After the disease attacked, Shana’s family was afraid that the university would find an excuse to terminate his employment. To their pleasant surprise, instead of finding a way to get rid of him, the university accommodated his disability in every way it could. It gave him accessible lecture halls, a private phone, and worked with him as the disease progressed. Shana had tremendous hakaras hatov, and when her

husband passed on, she felt that endowing a scholarship in his memory for the furtherance of Judaic studies would be a fitting memorial. Because the university had dealt with him so morally while he was ill, it never occurred to Shana to stipulate in writing the conditions of the scholarship. After all, his family and friends were giving the money. Surely they would have control. What could possibly go wrong? The scholarship seemed to go through without a problem. But it wasn’t until three years later that Shana wondered why it wasn’t being awarded as frequently as it could have been. It was only when

What suddenly the parent of a boy who is I don’t remember was that the parsha that definitely taller than me, and whose voice week was Emor.

This was clearly intellectual maturity and a mastery of skills an opportunity lost.

As when he was little, a sudden onset of big changes can only mean one thing, a birthday is near. And while each one was big, this one is really big. In two weeks he will become a bar mitzvah.* As we countdown to the day, my husband and I reflect on what this day means, how to mark it and what we would like for him to remember. There is seemingly great pressure to orchestrate a production worthy of the Hong Kong skyline that will serve as a backdrop. We have been to simchas where international sensations performed, pop Bar Mitzvah day in Ohel Leah Synagogue star impersonators have come in posses and acrobats, snake charmers and fire education, well, actually an end to all Jewdancers amazed with incredible feats. ish education.

the fact that teenagers and the early hours of Sunday morning are often intrinsically opposed to one another. Things are certainly moving in the right direction; however, when it comes to the party we are still undecided. External expectations are certainly high and while I am rarely indecisive, with this decision we find ourselves wavering from one extreme to the next. Our extended family’s tickets are booked and the overseas frenzy over what to wear has begun. They, however, just may see that they came for a bar mitzvah, but without the bar. As a family, we know that it will be in Ohel Leah Synagogue, a place where we are all at home. We know that Jewish education doesn’t end here and this is actually just the beginning. We all know the name of the parsha. We know the theme is Torah not iPhones, European football, Disney or Madonna. With what we consider the essentials covered, there are some unique details where planning a simcha becomes very Hong Kong. Here is what I am discovering are the essentials of Hong Kong b’nai mitzvah planning:

Bar mitzvah boy with siblings and Dad outside Ohel Leah Synagogue

Invitations Again, with a bit of creativity and access to printing prices that haven’t been seen in New York since 1980, this is an easy one. The advent of digital printing also means that if you can provide the layout, the rest is easy. (If you are sending these overseas, you do have to stick to a schedule, though, and allow for extra time.) Benchers Ok, a potential pitfall. This is where things get a bit more complicated. This requires schlepers who can bring in hundreds of benchers from New York (Israel works too) and then you can customize the covers (see invitations). Candy Again, somewhat problematic. We do have a kosher market but if you want candy that is anything but the single available selection that year, again you must call in the schlepers.

Learning In a community of about 4,000 Jews with a Jewish Day School, seven congregations and many more rabbis, even off the Jewish map, we have this more than covered. We are not suffering from a lack of choices.

Tefillin/Talit Cases For both and other ritual items for the Bar Mitzvah boy. Sorry. It is back to those schlepers or some pretty serious advance planning. But in the end we have the parsha and all the rest is commentary.

Kippot In Hong Kong, we don’t need to look for the best websites for kippot. We are about 45 minutes from the Chinese border where there are tailors galore and prices are low. The trick is to find kippot from a simcha that you liked and get the name of their tailor. If you want tablecloths, this is the place for that as well.

Post-bar mitzvah, we have decided to (indefinitely) continue our family mishnah study with the rabbi. We hope our children are beginning to understand that learning isn’t reserved for a particular period in our lives or for a specific event but it is a lifelong pursuit. Our plans for how to celebrate in November are still most definitely undecided.

Mama’s Turning 90!

“Mama’s turning 90!” the cream colored postcard announced joyfully from the top of my mail pile. “Come celebrate with us…” An old, black and white photo of a lovely young woman smiled up at me, warming my heart. So Mrs. L will be 90, I mused. How does that happen? How does a smooth, beautiful face framed with wavy, auburn hair, brown eyes dancing with delightful expectation and dreams, become a face filled with age spots, a maze of wrinkles, and hanging skin? Really, if I make it to 90, I hope to age like Mrs. L. Cognitively and physically intact, she carries herself with grace and regality. Her gentle smile, warm greeting and pride in her family are evident in each of our interactions. Every Erev Shabbos I speak to Mrs. L, and over the years have grown to love her. How did we connect? About ten years ago her husband was very sick, and she asked for bikur cholim assistance. I remember her legendary devotion; she wouldn’t leave his side, not while there was a breath of life remaining in his weakened body. And she wasn’t young then, either. But she was strong and spry, and a true eishes chayil. Party day arrived, and off I went to wish the birthday girl mazel tov. A twenty-five minute drive into an unfamiliar neighborhood of rolling hills and treelined streets brought me to my destination. I pulled up in front of a small mansion-style house, and my breath caught as I admired the perfectly manicured lawn. Yes, I’ll admit it – I found myself wishing

and wistful, muzzling the green-eyed monster, as I walked the cobblestone path and stepped up the smooth stairs… Not sure what to expect, I smiled hesitantly as I walked inside. Although Mrs. L attends our shul, she and her family are more traditional. Would there be anyone else frum, anyone from our community? Scanning faces, I saw numerous scantily dressed women and men without yarmulkes. To my relief, I spotted a few familiar faces in the sea of unfamiliarity. “Mazel tov, Mrs. L!” I greeted her, and felt vindicated for my efforts when her face lit up with a thousand-watt smile. “You came, Yehudis!” She wrapped me in a warm hug, which I happily returned. And then the program began. Six female seniors, Mrs. L being the oldest, arranged themselves in a line in front of the approximately one hundred guests. To the accompaniment of lively music, they performed three dances for us. Am I allowed to stay? I wondered uneasily. Seniors or not, it’s not appropriate for them to dance and wiggle in front of a mixed audience. And wiggle they did! I found myself clapping enthusiastically along with everyone else, awed and impressed by their energy and vitality. Go, ladies, go, my heart urged, davening that we all live to a ripe old age and retain our vigor and simchas hachayim. Hashem, am I allowed to be enjoying this? My hands continued to

clap, and my smile remained on my lips while I wondered. Next on the agenda, Mrs. L thanked all of her children for traveling to be with her on this special occasion, and then acknowledged her guests. With her lilting Spanish accent and her sophisticated attire, she truly resembled a queen. And then came the clincher. Aligned on a sweeping spiral staircase was a brother and sister duo, ready to serenade their mother for her life’s accomplishments. Uh-oh, I thought. Here we go again, only this time it’s kol isha. Do I go or stay? As their discordant voices united (maybe kol isha isn’t so bad when the woman can’t keep a tune), I found myself taken with the story they told. T’was the story of a woman who bravely left her country of birth, Cuba, during the revolution, to bring her family to the safety of America’s shores. Starting over, with all the travail and determination involved in being a new immigrant, yet persevering to create a strong empire of a loving family, helping to support the family as they launched a business venture, tending to her husband devotedly for sixty years and crowning that devotion during his final illness. It was truly a majestic picture, and my eyes welled up from all the love poured into the pages of that song. Will my children ever sing such words to me? Do they appreciate me as these children do their mother? And once again I clapped and marveled at the beauty that I witnessed, albeit from a source of a man and woman singing publicly. Gulp. Driving home, I had a heart-to-heart chat with my Maker. Hashem, if life is

meant to be black and white, then I should have left in silent protest against the infractions of Your will. Yet You’ve created pastels, colors that are muted and less stark, that whisper beauty. And I believe today was a pastel party. This family didn’t have the benefit of a religious upbringing; their goal was to bring joy to their beloved mother and grandmother, matriarch of their dynasty. And in that, they succeeded above and beyond all expectations. I, as her friend, showed her love by attending, and that, too, gave her honor and joy. Is life black and white? Or are we meant to utilize pastels? Sometimes I walk down our main avenue and gasp. Why is she wearing that? I wonder, appalled. Her skirt is too short; that outfit shows every curve. And then I change my glasses. She probably doesn’t know better, or she was overcome by temptation. And simply because modest dress is not my nisayon, who says that I pass my tests in flying colors? Hashem, as I chose a pastel viewing glass to gaze upon your children today, I pray that You too, will view my failings in pastel hues and not in bold, glaring colors. That You’ll trust I don’t mean to say certain words or act in certain ways, that I will work on myself and try to do better the next time. Because I’m only human, and sometimes I fail. Because You’re my Father, and a Father always has room to love His daughter unconditionally. Pulling up in front of my modest ranch house, I glanced up at the sky. It was beautiful, a soft blue, dotted with fleecy clouds. Definitely of the pastel variety, I nodded. And I stepped out of my car, determined to be the stuff that will make my family want to sing when I, with Hashem’s help, turn 90.

Small Communities: Bighearted People

W

ould you welcome the chance to invite a couple of strangers to a Friday night dinner in your home? Not everyone would respond eagerly! True, hosting is not always easy or convenient. Luckily, on our recent trip we met some very special people who went out of their way to be hospitable. After a 30-year absence from the USA, I returned to New York with my husband for a family simcha. After that, we spent two exciting months touring coast-tocoast, beginning in October. We spent time in Washington, Virginia, Florida, New Orleans, San Antonio, Utah, California and Nevada. Although we rented a car

sometimes, we also used Amtrak and had two long bus trips. As we were traveling great distances, we used insulated food bags plus a styrofoam ice chest for car travel. We selected motel rooms with a refrigerator and, preferably, a microwave and laundry facilities. With no close relatives or friends to fall back on, we scheduled Shabbat in Orthodox communities wherever possible. After writing ahead to synagogues to check prospects for hospitality, we booked motels within walking distance. We only stayed overnight with congregants a couple of times, preferring not to burden people. Our waterproof ponchos were useful for damp weather treks.

Shabbat was in the Metairie neighborhood with Jessie and Alvin, a young couple with three small boys. Sometimes we had good communication with synagogues, but on other occasion we talked repeatedly to an unresponsive answering service. Was anyone listening? If so, why didn’t they reply to our messages? With each passing day, Shabbat got closer, and we didn’t relish the prospect of a cold dinner in the hotel room that Friday night. However, we assigned no blame, assuming that these were small communities with limited resources. Luckily, everything worked out in the end, and we found a willing host in each place we visited.

After Washington, we toured Virginia, state of the beautiful trees. During an action-packed week we hiked the trails of the Shenandoah River State Park and the George Washington National Forest in Fort Valley. Unfortunately, the Skyline drive was inaccessible due to a government closure. We visited the 19th century Bushong Farm, Virginia’s impressive Museum of the Civil War and the Newmarket battlefield. American history comes alive through the videos and museum exhibits. Similarly, the Monticello estate of Thomas Jefferson – a World Heritage site – showcases his virtuosity, his aptitude for architecture, and his beautiful gardens and plantations. Incidentally, Monticello’s survival owes much to its subsequent owners, members of the prominent Levy

family. Guided tours of the grounds and the slave quarters imparted some fascinating information. For instance, as Jefferson rode around his plantation he used a piece of lead to make notes on an ivory tablet. The University of Virginia also bears his imprint as founder and designer. A convenient free bus runs from the historic center of Charlottesville to the university and back. Our first southern Shabbat was in Richmond, Va., a fairly sizeable community, where our hosts were Helen and

Dana. Dana was quite high up in the military and worked in Washington DC. Although Helen felt unwell that week, she kindly arranged for us to join them at her cousin’s for Friday night dinner. Helen showed concern that we had chosen to stay in the hotel, while she could easily have accommodated us. This remarkable woman already had several sleepover guests from a bat mitzvah party. The next day celebratory meals were hosted in the synagogue by this family. At the simcha it was amusing to discover connections between Richmond folks and members of our shul in Raanana. On Sunday we visited the colonial town of Williamsburg, whose beautiful restoration was funded by the Rockefellers. That rainy day we found that cheaper tickets are available for seniors who ask. What followed was a long train ride to Orlando, Florida. At our next stop, New Orleans, Hurricane Sandy was not yet forgotten. Our elderly cab driver at the Greyhound bus station explained how he had come out of retirement after the destruction of his house. Shabbat was in the Metairie neighborhood with Jessie and Alvin, a young couple with three small boys. They hosted us for Friday night as there was no hotel nearby. Jessie homeschools the boys, who also attend classes at Chabad. Beth Israel was a small, attractive synagogue of the post-hurricane era which functioned smoothly, though it had no official rabbi just then. That evening we joined a dairy potluck supper in a private house with a group of young local families and enjoyed mingling with them all. After lunch in the synagogue, we walked by the levees lining the shores of Lake Pontchartrain. An afternoon shiur was followed by combined services at the Chabad synagogue.

On a bus tour of New Orleans we heard about the annual Mardi Gras carnival, then strolled through the elegant mansions of the Garden district. Other sights were the wrought iron balconies and art galleries of the French quarter, the River Walk that displayed an Agam sculpture and the National World War II

The Touro synagogue, a Reform temple since 1891, also caught our attention. Museum. We took an afternoon jazz cruise down the Mississippi river on an old steam ship, an authentic paddle wheeler. After eating our sandwiches, we sampled tasty donuts or beignets from Café du Monde for dessert, then under kosher supervision. The Touro synagogue, a Reform temple since 1891, also caught our attention. Its immense building, dedicated in 1909, houses the ark originally donated by merchant-philanthropist Judah Touro (1775-

1854) to his Spanish-Portuguese brethren of Nefutzot Yehudah in 1847. Initially named Shaarei Hesed, and later Touro, the first New Orleans synagogue was founded in 1828 by German settlers. The Sephardim reunited with the Ashkenazim in 1881 after a 35-year separation. A long train ride followed across the flat shrubland of Texas. Our next Shabbat was at Rodfei Shalom in San Antonio. Rabbi and Rebbitzen Scheinberg, 43 years at the helm, greeted us warmly. Here too we stayed with congregants, but dined in the large synagogue, as it was a special weekend with communal meals. Our hostess was Miriam, a sixtyish widow. Even though a bad leg had recently relegated her to a wheelchair, she called me ahead of time to arrange everything and spared no effort to ensure our comfort. In addition, Miriam’s sons transported my husband to services on Sunday and Monday. We were glad to learn how different Jewish communities cooperate in San Antonio, and that tolerance is the norm. Some

couples had recently moved in because of the reasonable housing and friendly atmosphere. Our fond memories include visits to the Spanish governor’s palace, the river area, the Alamo, the McNay art museum and the botanical gardens, plus a moving reunion with my elderly cousins at the kosher vegetarian restaurant. Though we arrived in San Francisco by car, we avoided driving because of the congestion. Instead, we briefly toured the sights by bus, tram, cable-car, ferry and on foot. On Friday afternoon we finally detected the storefront housing the tiny downtown synagogue – just in time to light candles. The veteran lay leader of Keneseth Israel on 873 Sutter Street is Henry Falkenberg. During the summer, when more tourists come, there is usually a quorum of men. Unfortunately, we did not have a minyan that Shabbat, but Henry organized vegetarian meals for the sociable group that assembled to pray. On weekdays my husband attended morning services at the nearby school of digital film. In Las Vegas, our final stop, we weren’t typical tourists, and our main activity was a day trip to the western rim of the Grand Canyon. When my husband went off to synagogue on Friday morning, no Shabbat invitation had come through yet. Naturally, Mordechai was surprised and delighted when Ira, a former New Yorker, came over immediately to meet and greet him. Thanks to this welcome initiative of one Jew to an-

Ira’s wife Hanna, a graphic artist, was a native of Vegas and had traveled extensively in the past through her management job. We are deeply grateful to all those special people who hosted us. The nice thing is that it can work both ways. Sam, a lone soldier from San Antonio, just came over for Shabbat, while Jessie and Alvis from New Orleans came in early March. We also hope to reunite with other people we met in the USA. Indeed, our experiences as travelers have certainly increased our sensitivity to the mitzvah of hospitality. ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­ The writer can be contacted at sdlfsusan@ yahoo.com.

AS TOLD TO YEHUDIS FELDMAN

Of Beaches And Betrayals

T

his mild April day, I take my grandchildren to the park and settle myself on a bench. An odd couple makes their way to my bench. The younger, modestly-dressed, woman sits at the far end of the bench, scanning the park for her offspring. Satisfied at each one’s location and well-being, she turns to the older woman between us, and inquires, “Ima, is it too chilly for you? I brought a sweater, if you’d like.” I sneak a look at “Ima” – actually, she’s hard to miss. In contrast to her daughter’s modest clothing, “Ima,” with lavender hair, a long, multi-colored scarf, and electric blue pants, borders on flamboyant. “Gracias, Sarita, I’m fine,” the Ima declines, and turns to me. “Today’s weather is beautiful, si?” “Gorgeous,” I agree. “A perfect day to bring grandchildren outside,” and I tilt my chin in the direction of my grandchildren playing in the sand. My seatmate flips her scarf over her shoulder and gestures to the climbing bars. “There are my grandchildren. They resemble me.”

I look in vain for grandchildren with purple hair, and nod politely. “Who would believe I’d visit a religious neighborhood, have my daughter dressed like she is, with children of her own?” my seatmate muses. “Did I ever think she’d get married? I always pictured her as a famous singer.” Sarita bursts into laughter and strokes her mother’s arm. Sensing a story, I encourage the woman to continue. “We came from Argentina ten years ago. We were not religious, but we knew we were Jewish and wanted to live in the Jewish state. We enrolled the children in schools, and my husband and I went to learn Hebrew in an ulpan. The children picked up Hebrew much quicker than we did. By the time Sarita was in high school, you’d think she was a born Israeli.” Sarita murmurs to her mother, “Well…” Her mother smiles and continues, “The children acclimated well to life in Israel, but teenagers will be teenagers. They want to experiment, try out new

things. Sarita’s best friends were Ronit Weiss, a charismatic girl from our street, and Chen Zanger, a very intelligent girl, very educated, the principal’s daughter. I didn’t know that Ronit was becoming interested in religion, Torah and all that. One summer, when I thought that Sarita and Ronit were going to the beach, Ronit convinced Sarita to go with her to the separate beach – just ladies, no men. In Argentina, no such thing. Even to go to the regular beach, we travel five hours! The separate beach is more crowded than the regular beach, since it’s a smaller area, closed off, not a whole coastline, but it’s safer. No low-life boys start up with girls there. “Months later, Chen visited Ronit. They saw Ronit’s photos of the summer and Chen was fascinated with pictures of Sarita and Ronit at the separate beach, with women wearing housecoats and kerchiefs in the background. When Chen arrived back at her apartment and told her mother, Hadas, about the photos she saw, our troubles began. She immediately suspended Sarita and Ronit from school.” “What?!” Sarita and her mother laugh heartily at my stunned reaction. “Si,” Sarita’s mother nods, “Now we laugh, but then it was muy doloroso, very painful. Hadas insisted the girls go for psychological care. Looking back, it could be her fear that Chen might become religious drove her to conclude that anyone interested in religion should have her head examined. “We were naive then. The school said to send the girls for psychological help, so we did. Hadas suggested a clinic in our neighborhood – bueno, why not? Although my husband already finished ulpan, he still needed to pass exams to be

licensed, and we didn’t have the money the clinic charged, but what could we do? The school said we had to go, so we did.” “I didn’t like the therapist they sent me to,” Sarita remembers, “Ronit wasn’t happy with her therapist either, but the school told our parents to keep us apart, that we couldn’t visit each other or talk on the phone, so we couldn’t even commiserate together.” Sarita’s mother’s eyes are clouded now and her purple hair has a grey tinge. “Week after week, the girls remained at home. We went for a meeting with the principal, a meeting with the clinic, we had the school guidance counselor over for a house visit – whatever the school demanded, we did, although I felt that I couldn’t trust them. “So much stress. I felt that no one could help us. I turned to G-d. ‘Let one of the principal’s children have a breakdown so she’ll leave us alone,’ I prayed, and on New Year’s Eve, a Russian on a motorcycle ran over Guy Zanger, the principal’s son, and broke his leg. I stopped praying then, because I saw that prayer is very powerful.” “You could still pray,” I venture, “just for good things.” Sarita gets up to rescue one of her children who’s stuck at the top of the slide, and “Ima” pulls her scarf tighter and continues, “After more than a month, the girls were finally allowed back to school; however instead of being in her former class with Mr. Levi, a relaxed, understanding red-head, Sarita was switched into Mrs. Kahn’s class. The first day she came to school, Mrs. Kahn’s class yelled, ‘Lo!’ – they wanted Ronit back in their class but Ronit had been switched to Mr. Levi’s class. Sarita was very hurt by their

We discovered that Hadas had been badmouthing Sarita and Ronit to the other boys and girls and discouraged them from visiting our girls, and she forbade Chen from any contact with our girls. “Sarita had nightmares about school, and each day she’d worry whether the principal would yell at her. Although the girls had been out of school for more than a month, Hadas warned them that they must get at least 80% on each midterm exam or they’d be kicked out again. This is school, not a motel! They were only allowed back in out of the goodness of her heart and they had better watch their every step. What might have started with concern over the girls’ mental stability was turning into abuse. “We decided to look for another school. The secular schools in the area we applied to called the school Sarita was attending to inquire about her, and later we heard how Hadas would answer. ‘Oh, Sarita Gavizon (pause). Certainly I know her. It’s a very (pause) complicated case. Your school has the infrastructure to deal with (pause) mental illness?’ That was enough to scare off any prospective schools. “To keep Ronit off the streets while she was suspended that month, her parents went with her to Arachim seminars and Torah classes. She was a charismatic girl, and in short, not only did she become religious, but she influenced her family to become religious also! After she was let back into school and dreaded meeting the principal who’d criticize her daily, she convinced her parents to let her try a religious school.” Mrs. Gavizon starts chuckling. “The

funniest part is that three times a week, Ronit traveled on the same bus in the morning as Guy Zanger, who was going for physiotherapy for his leg. Ronit always made sure he had a place to sit on the bus, and she soon had him attending Torah classes and he became religious, too!” Sarita adds, “And when he changed his name, he told people, ‘I used to be just a guy, but now I’m Gavriel (Man of G-d)!’” My grandchildren look thirsty. I pull out a bottle of water and disposable cups from underneath the stroller and pour cups of drink for my grandchildren, my seatmates, and other children who quickly materialize around our bench. Mrs. Gavizon introduces her grandchildren, sweet little things with auburn hair. “Other than their hair, they take after me,” Mrs. Gavizon says proudly. “The hair comes from their father’s side. You remember I told you about Sarita’s teacher, Mr. Levi? Well, his son became religious around the same time as Sarita – pero I’m getting ahead of myself. Where were we?” “The schools, Ima.” “Si, escuela. After I spoke with Mrs. Weiss, I figured, let’s try a religious school. We went to many interviews, but the schools told us they didn’t think Sarita would fit in, that her background was very different from that of the other students.” “Um, you went to the interviews with… purple hair?” I ask delicately. “No, of course not. This was years ago. Back then, my hair was green. Sarita, was it mint green or sea green?” “Sea green, Ima.” “Si, very pretty. Anyway, the last school we went to, we took along a cas-

sette tape recorder with a cassette tape Sarita made when she was suspended. In Argentina, Sarita took voice lessons, piano lessons, and guitar lessons. At the interview, when the principal started to give the familiar ‘I don’t think our school is suitable for your daughter’ line, I asked her to wait one minute. I whipped out the cassette player from my tote bag and plugged it in near the desk. We remained silent during the song, then the principal quickly brushed away her tears, and asked with a smile, ‘Was this an interview or an audition?’ She shook our hands and said she’d be in touch. After two days, she called and said she couldn’t sleep after hearing the song. Sarita could transfer schools the next day.” “That must have been quite a song,” I say. “Si! Sarita, how did that song go?” Sarita blushes. “Oh, Ima.” “Por favor, Sarita…” Mrs. Gavizon raises her eyebrows hopefully. Sarita looks around quickly to make sure no one is nearby and quietly sings a few lines. Haunting. No wonder the principal couldn’t sleep. Mrs. Gavizon smiles at Sarita. “Gracias. You see what a good girl my Sarita is? Very respectful. Talented, too. You did enjoy that religious school, didn’t you?” “Absolutely, Ima. Everything we went through – it was worth it to go to that school, to become religious, to live a life of meaning.” “Si, I suppose. The religious school never made us any problems. What we went through with the other school, though… You see, I have not forgotten any detail. Never had we been treated like that before in our lives. Not even by gentiles. Here in Israel we felt like we were being persecuted.” She shakes her head. “But now, everything ended nicely. Sarita married that nice Mr. Levi’s son and Ronit married Gavriel Zanger! Hadas still hasn’t accepted it, though. Not their marriage and not Gavriel becoming religious.”

I like nice, neat endings. “And what about Chen?” Mrs. Gavizon squints. “No idea.” Sarita sighs. “Chen became involved with an Arab twelve years older than she. I heard he was very charming at first, but now they live in his kfar (village) and he forbids her to have any contact with her family or friends.” “Pobrecita,” Mrs. Gavizon shakes her head sadly. “Such a smart girl. Although we never became as religious as Sarita or the Weiss family, we never discouraged our daughter from doing what she believed in.” I realize it’s getting late and that the grandchildren should wash up and eat dinner before their parents come to fetch them. I bid Mrs. Gavizon and Sarita goodbye, thank them for sharing their story (and the song), and herd the grandchildren homeward. My four-yearold granddaughter seems lost in thought. “What’s on your mind, sweetie?” I ask. “I want purple hair, too,” my granddaughter announces. “Maybe,” I answer, “maybe for Purim. Ask your parents.”

F E AT U R E CAREER SERVICES

Parents: Helicopter, Submarine Or Booster Rocket?

A

bright, articulate accounting major, just a few months away from graduation, visited my office. As we discussed what kind of position and in what type of accounting firm she wanted to work, it became increasingly clear that she did not have a passion, let alone a real interest, in becoming an accountant. My question: “What do you really want to be?” Her answer: “A writer!” My follow up: “So why did you become an accounting major?” Her response really floored me. “Because that’s all my parents would pay for!” Another time, a parent called me to say he wanted his son to become an accountant. Why? “It is a solid, respectable career where he can make a decent living. After he has a good source of income and fallback position, he can study what he really wants.” Both of these students will have to earn 150 credits over a 4-year period studying something they have little interest in! As parents, it is a given that we love our children and want what’s best for them. How do we go about making that happen? (1) The child makes his own career decision or (2) the parents make the choice. The best approach is somewhere in between with somewhat more emphasis on option 1. A parent may say, “I’m paying for your education; therefore I need to have at least a major, if not the whole, part in the decision.” However, a parent has to be extremely careful not to be biased by: (1) An assumption that I know you better than you know you. This “Father Knows Best” approach implies that I, the parent, have more life experience and it is in your best interest to listen to me, or you are too immature to make this decision. (2) The fear that you will not be successful in pursuing your career choice. The toxic message here could be that you are not smart, ambitious or passionate enough

about your choice to succeed. (3) An unfulfilled dream on the part of the parent. Failing to become what you, the parent, wanted to be, does not give you the right to encourage or force your child to fulfill your dreams. Given my dual role as a parent and Director of Career Services, I have a unique perspective that I want to share, along with some specific suggestions, on how to navigate this path. If a parent asked me for my advice regarding helping his young adult find the right career for her, here is what I would suggest: Know the awesome influence you have as a parent. Children will hear what you say or don’t say; non-verbal messages speak volumes and are extremely potent. For example, rolling your eyes when a child says he would like to be a __________ may cause his idea to be forever discarded. There was a NY subway sign a few years ago that showed a picture of a child’s eyes and ears and labeled them as the “most sensitive recording devices known to mankind!” Think about the messages you received from your parents that stayed with you long after you left home. We need to be extremely careful what we communicate to our children. Our work and life experiences will certainly influence our views. One parent confided, “Finding a job is the most difficult task in the world.” A few days later his son was sitting in my office saying, “Finding a job is the most difficult task in the world!” We talk about parents being “helicopter parents” hovering over their child’s progress at school and even on the job. I would like to suggest another label, “submarine parents,” who can undermine a child’s choices without the child consciously noticing it; this approach in the name of love can surely sink a child’s real purpose. Build your offspring’s self-esteem.

Children are very impressionable and need a parent’s love, compassion, respect and patience as they progress through their growing years. Allowing children to practice their decision-making skills early on is excellent preparation for the more complex decisions later in life. You can be like the “booster rocket” that provides the initial lift-off for your child’s growth and then “kicks in” whenever there is a need for extra thrust. Encourage exploration. Many times students come to Career Services and say, “I want to be a __________.” When questioned they often admit they do not really understand what it means to be, say, a financial analyst. As a parent, you can say, “I do not know what career is best for you, let’s explore the options together.” Make it clear that the final decision is up to them, but you are ready to assist. Encourage them to research what the career is all about. Contact us to find about doing an Informational Interview. Be aware of what is “normal” when trying to find the “right” career; this should be a labor of love. It requires work, but when the direction is right for the child, it will be exciting and rewarding. Know that just as life is not straightforward, searching for the right career can be downright messy! There is a statistic that is bandied around in the career counseling circles that people change careers, not jobs within careers, but actual careers, anywhere from 4 to 7 times. While I have not seen any studies that substantiate this claim, I know that people do change careers more often than in previous generations. Sometimes it takes a career or two to get to the best fit. The work to find the “best fit” career is not always easy, but it is ultimately extremely rewarding.

Be a role model. Some students go about their day in a self-absorbed fog, like the world was created for them, and they are entitled to receive, but not give. For the most part this mindset does not bring success in the work world. What can a parent do to rectify this mindset? Help your child to be sensitive to the needs of others. Cultivate respect for others, good personal habits, common courtesy and being responsible; impart the crucial message that you, my child, are not entitled to anything in this world – you need to take the actions to achieve the goal you set for yourself – so, aim high! Ask Hashem to help. Finally, if I could be so presumptuous as to propose a prayer for parents, it would read something like this: “Master of the World, with regard to helping my child find a career, may I honor my son’s desires, strengths and likes, and support him to look into the options without overtly or covertly coercing him to follow my ways. Let my son find his own way and let his career be aligned with his purpose in life, just like Betzalel in our Holy Torah. May I be a source of encouragement and a contributor to his self confidence that he will find what works for him. For the ultimate growth of my child, may I not be a helicopter or submarine parent, but rather like the booster rocket to propel him to reach great heights! Thank You!” Your feedback is welcome.

Shulamit Halevi Stein: Saving The Flag

Impact of Women on Jewish History

(Part II)

S

hulamit Halevi volunteered to teach Hebrew to the young newcomer from Czechoslovakia and help him cope with the lonely life of a parentless pioneer in Eretz Yisrael. In time Shulamit’s kindness and Yiftach’s gratitude blossomed into love, and in 1944 the 19-yearold Yemenite girl and the 21-year-old Czech immigrant married and settled down near Shulamit’s family in Rishon LeZion. Three years later their daughter, Yardena, was born. Having a young child did not prevent the devoted Zionist couple from involvement in underground activities. Shulamit smuggled arms for the Irgun, distributed secret posters and in general served as a clandestine contact person for the organization. Yiftach joined the Jewish Brigade and fought on several fronts. Eventually the dedicated couple settled

in Netanya, a vital center of covert military activities. In 1948 with the establishment of the Jewish State, Yiftach joined the Israel Defense Forces, serving in the Alexandroni Brigade. It was then that the tragic Altalena incident took place. A few months earlier, in accordance with a secret agreement approved by the French foreign minister, weapons valued at 153 million francs were donated by the French government to members of the Irgun. These were loaded on a cargo ship purchased by the Irgun and renamed Altalena, a pseudonym of Zev Jabotinsky. Unfortunately, the cargo ship arrived on Israeli shores with some delay, on June 22, 1948. David Ben Gurion had declared the establishment of the State on May 14, 1948. The arrival of the explosive cargo in Irgun’s possession was erroneously perceived as a threat to Ben Gurion who

without further ado issued a command to Yitzhak Rabin to shoot at the ship with a host of Irgun members aboard. The first shot ignited the ship. The Altalena was engulfed in flames. The volunteer sailors jumped into the sea and swam ashore. Among them was Yiftach Stein who had boarded the ship earlier in order to serve as contact person for Menachem Begin. Yiftach was among the last sailors to leap into the sea. Before reaching the shore he took a last look at the ship and noticed that the flag of the Irgun was still flapping, unharmed among the flames. He swam back under a barrage of bullets, climbed aboard the burning ship, released the flag from its pedestal and, wrapping the precious banner about his body, swam safely ashore. As a sign of recognition for his valiant deed Yiftach was presented with the flag of the Irgun, now the only one in existence. A year later the modest couple decided to hand over the banner of the Irgun to the

Jabotinsky museum. Years passed. Shulamit and Yiftach became grandparents to Gila, Ron, Orly and Lior Rottenberg, their daughter Yardena’s children. Yardena, an active social worker, is the widow of Dr. Shmuel Rottenberg, a beloved family physician. Yiftach died in 1992. Shulamit sought comfort for her grief by paying a visit to the flag in the Jabotinsky Museum. However, the flag was missing and no one seemed to know where it had gone. It took three years of intense searching to find the missing flag. Eventually it was installed in the Guidi Museum in Tel Aviv as a permanent exhibit in a decorative ceremony attended by dignitaries, family and friends Shulamit was later instrumental in having the government posthumously present Yiftach with a festive medal with the burning Altalena engraved on its face and the story of Yiftach saving the flag on its back. May his memory be a blessing.

Whither Thou Goest I Will Go by Ellen Wasserman “Whither thou goest, I will go,” so said the Moabite. “Thy G-d my G-d, thy land my land, I’ll share your every plight.” Naomi looked into Ruth’s eyes and, strange to say, she saw A woman who would gladly share her fate with her mother-in-law. “Thy people will be my people, my birthplace I will leave. I’ll follow you to your homeland, ‘til death to you I’ll cleave.” Naomi gazed into Ruth’s eyes and then she understood This Moabite who wed her son was gentle, kind, and good. Naomi thought of her last years, they could have been no rougher. She lost her husband and two sons, much pain she had to suffer. Why was she here in this strange land among so many strangers? Her future so uncertain now, replete with untold dangers. She closed her eyes and from her past she saw a tranquil scene. Her lovely home in Bethlehem and fertile fields of green. Lone shepherds with their wooly flocks and peaceful olive groves, And wheat stalks swaying in the breeze and air as fresh as cloves. This Holy Land of verdant fields, of mountains, rivers, streams, Was always in Naomi’s heart and always in her dreams. But then G-d shut the Heavens up, life-giving rain did cease, And in the Holy Land the food did steadily decrease. The farmers’ sickles rusted for the land lay dry and parched, And across the barren landscape, a Fearsome Famine marched.

Then Elimelech took his family from Bethlehem. The famine there, he claimed, would be a certain death to them. But the man was very wealthy, and there was no indication That if they stayed in Israel they would all die of starvation. In truth the man had riches, but he did not wish to share. Of his fellow Jews’ condition, Elimelech did not care. Responsibility to fellow Jews he abrogated, And thus to early death the man most tragically was fated.

For Jewish men they had betrothed, named Machlon and Chillyon. Now with their sudden deaths they found that they too were alone. Alone, alone, all all alone, and yet to tell the truth, Naomi had a special bond of love with her dear Ruth. The bond between them was so great, and so it was no wonder That none could possibly succeed in tearing them asunder. Their destiny was firmly linked, Ruth did not need a tether To chain her to Naomi as they journeyed forth together.

Now if Midrashic explanations we’re to understand, His sin was magnified because he left the Holy Land. The famine in the Holy Land was no threat to his life, Yet still he left the land with his two sons and with his wife. Oh irony of ironies, from famine he did flee, But death embraced him in Moab, it was Hashem’s decree. Yes Elimelech died, and his two sons took heathen wives, And by this wrongful act, the two sons forfeited their lives.

Her fate as part of Israel not once did she reject. With steadfast step by Naomi’s side into Israel she trekked. Then, unlike Dorothy, who chose to leave the Land of Oz, Ruth gladly stayed and bore a son to a kind man named Boaz. And from their blessed marriage, David, King of Israel, came, From whom Moshiach will descend, whom the whole world will acclaim. The zechus to be Moshiach one of her progeny will inherit Because of Ruth’s commitment and because of her great merit.

In Israel Naomi was well-off and in her glory, But G-d can change a person’s fate. Good luck is transitory. Oh woe unto Naomi, now alone and destitute. To go back to the Holy Land she was most resolute. And woe unto the Moabites, the wives of her two sons; For like their hapless mother-in-law, they were unlucky ones.

Though Ruth was not born Jewish, one can find in her no flaw, For like the Jews at Mt. Sinai, she gladly embraced the Law. I sit now in my synagogue, Shavuos has arrived! The scent of flowers envelops me, my spirit is revived. I hear the Chazzan reading famous words that I do know: “Entreat me not to leave thee, for Whither Thou Goest, I Will Go!”

through. January 31, 2014 “A toy store?” Breindel asked in disbelief. “Don’t kids have enough toys in America?” Bayla laughed. “Yes, but toys from Eretz Yisrael are much more exciting, even if I can buy the same thing on Thirteenth Avenue.” Her eyes flitted absently across the store, barely seeing the shelves and their contents, and Breindel found herself similarly unable to concentrate. “What did Meir say about this trip of yours?” she asked again. “That I should do what I felt was right for me. And that if this is right for me, then he approves.” Mrs. Farkash cleared her throat uncomfortably. “Why do you think it’s right for you to be here now?” “Actually, I came to check out

apartments.” Bayla spoke the words offhandedly, but the way she avoided meeting her mother’s gaze betrayed her tension. “Apartments?” her mother didn’t try to disguise her astonishment, and Bayla noticed with dismay that her mother seemed far from overjoyed at her revelation. “Yes, you heard right. I want to move back to Eretz Yisrael. I want to live near you. I want to try to make things up to you, somehow, Mommy. You’ve spent so many years on your own! Until now, we were in New York because I felt obligated to be there, but now that I know what I do, I see that I don’t owe anything to anyone.” The colorful toys performed a crazed dance before Breindel’s eyes. “And Meir feels the same way?” “He will.” Bayla’s jaw tightened, a fact that didn’t escape her mother’s attention. She’d always been good at sizing people up. “And if he doesn’t?” “If he doesn’t?” Bayla’s eyes were two pools of agony. “Mommy, all through the years, I stayed in New York, even though I hated it with a passion at first. What did I have there? I missed you and Tatty desperately, not to mention all my friends, the familiar surroundings… I couldn’t find work because I didn’t know the language, and I was so lonely! But I did it for my husband, thinking I had no choice… I don’t know, maybe I really didn’t. “And, meanwhile, you and Tatty were here, missing me too! And not only that, you actually funded it, even going into debt… making up stories about ‘our’ apartment in Eretz Yisrael

and doing everything you could to try and make things easier for me. So now, I don’t owe Meir another thing,” she said angrily, grinding her teeth together and trying to keep her voice down and remember that they were in a store, not in the privacy of a home. “It’s time for him to be understanding, even to have some of the mesirus nefesh that you – and I – had all those years.” “But you’ve put down roots there. You have children, grandchildren, a whole family!” “So what? They can visit whenever they want. Mommy, it’s time… it’s time you had a family, too.” Bayla glanced up at her mother, trying to gauge her reaction. “And you really think Meir will go along with all this?” Breindel bit her lip, wondering if it was really wise to risk inciting Bayla even further against her husband. Instead of replying to the question, Bayla removed a pile of little Playmobil sets from the shelf and murmured to herself, “The kids love Playmobil. I’ll buy them here, even though,” she paused to check the price, “they’re about thirty percent cheaper in America.” Her expression tightened again. “It’s funny; what they’ll actually appreciate is the Hebrew lettering on the box, much more than the contents. So what I’m really paying for is just the packaging, the excitement of ‘something from Eretz Yisrael.’ Maybe they would be just as excited to have grandparents in Eretz Yisrael?” Her tone was wistful, even longing, and Breindel looked at her with worry, wondering anxiously where all this was leading…

D A I LY L I V I N G For your average Israeli, spicy hot might be fun, but not for me. Allow me to repeat – easy does it!

Easy Does It! BY MINDY RAFALOWITZ

I

f you are unfamiliar with Israeli cuisine, you probably wouldn’t know that Israeli’s believe “the spicier the better.” As a newcomer over 25 years ago, spicy food was one of the hardest things for me to get used to. Until today, I can’t tolerate any more than a pinch of black pepper. No hot pepper of any kind, including chili, of course, (can’t fool me into thinking it’s actually “chilly”…). I really don’t understand what Israelis see in peppery dishes. Whenever I ask I’m told “ze kol ha’taam!” meaning “that’s what gives it all its flavor!” I strongly disagree. I feel that using pepper and hot spices in abundance prevents you from experiencing the succulent essence of the delicacy before you. This is because when your tongue is ablaze, you lose the ability to define other subtle seasonings that are meant to enhance your meal. I suspect that people use a lot of hot pepper in order to camouflage their otherwise tasteless dish (no offense intended…) I believe – easy does it! Once, I ordered falafel at an Israeli eatery. I was almost done when suddenly I felt my mouth go afire. A quick investi-

gation showed I had bitten into a fiery-hot red pepper (called shifka in Hebrew), the remnants of which I found in the small piece of pita I held in hand. At this point, not only was my mouth burning, but my throat – all the way down to my tonsils – was aflame too. I found it hard to breathe, let alone talk. Downing my cold drink, swallowing another piece of pita and even panting didn’t help a bit. I needed to call someone to put the fire out, but who?! The Fire Department? Hatzalah? What would I say – “Mouth on fire! Come quick!”? I called a good friend. Maybe she’d have an idea how to extinguish the searing blaze, fast. “You’re asking me?” was her incredulous reaction. “You’re the tip lady, you should know what to do!” she laughed. Devastated, the hot breath I was holding came out in a hiss and I was sure I saw dragon-like flames rush from my mouth. What now? I racked my quickly-frying-brain for an answer. Looking for immediate relief, my eyes fell on the ice bowl nearby. I hastily filled my jumbo cup with the frozen ice cubes and then my mouth – full capacity. Slowly, oh, ever so slowly,

Sprinkle the salt evenly over the fish, then squeeze the lemon over the fish and set aside for about 30 minutes to neutralize the “fishy” odor. Sprinkle the curry powder over the fish. Place in a Pyrex dish skin-side down. Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 400°F for about 20 minutes or until fish turns opaque in the center. Tip: If you like your fillets skinless pull the skin off with a sharp knife while still frozen.

my singed tongue began to cool and after a full hour(!), the burning sensation was finally under control. For your average Israeli, spicy hot might be fun, but not for me. Allow me to repeat – easy does it! By now, you’ve probably noticed that that’s my motto in the kitchen as well. Why work hard when you can get great results with minimum time and ingredients? Hard to believe? Easy can be delicious! Take my “Nothing Chicken” for example. It’s amazingly simple and succulent – nothing can beat it! All you need to do after cleaning the chicken parts is put them on an oven tray lined with baking paper and slide into the oven. Don’t add anything! Bake for 1½ – 2 hours and the dark golden tone will announce “dinner time”! Or make it for your Yom Tov meal and keep it warm, covered on the stove. No one will resist a hefty portion or two so make sure to make enough! Bet you won’t believe that you can make chicken soup with no chicken at all! This is something we came upon totally by mistake. It was Friday morning and we were preparing our chicken soup for Shabbos. All the vegetables and spices were in the pot, minus the chicken bones, when someone put it on boil. Somehow I got tied up with the challah dough (pun intended), planning to add the chicken later on. Later was lunchtime which meant I’d have a problem since I like to serve “Shabbos soup” (i.e. – chicken soup) for Friday’s lunch but the main ingredient was still missing. What met my eyes was quite a surprise, though, since the soup looked as “chicken-y” as ever! Even I was fooled into reminding my son to use a placemat under his hot soup bowl before putting it on the milchig table… And best of all, our parve chicken soup even passed the family

“taste test” – no one guessed something was amiss-ing… Below you will find a great recipe for tilapia fillets. This, too, falls into the category of “easy does it.” The outcome? Out of this world! You can try it with almost any kind of fish – salmon, sole or halibut with fantastic results no less. But first here’s a cheesecake question and answer: Why does my cheesecake “crack” while it bakes? I bake it on 350°F for the first 10 minutes, then lower the heat to 300°F. Is this the correct method for cheese cakes? Your method is indeed correct. The problem you describe rises from the fact that cheese products tend to expand in the heat and “blow up” so when you remove your cheesecake from the oven, it will deflate and possibly “crack.” One suggestion: Leave the cake in the oven after you turn it off, until it cools completely. Another idea: Use a good “cover-up” like dairy whipped cream. So make your Shavuos seudah this year with ease and with flair. I’m s u r e y o u ’l l find what to do with the extra time you’ll have out of the chicken… I mean kitchen!

D A I LY L I V I N G Cookbook Previews & Reviews

Dairy Rules In Dairy Made Easy BY SANDY ELLER

I

t was February 2013 when culinary queens Leah Schapira and Victoria Dwek teamed up on a joint cookbook, the first in a series of volumes that were affordably priced yet jam-packed with scrumptious triple-tested recipes, easy to understand instructions and pictures that were sure to start your tummy rumbling. Passover Made Easy was followed six months later by Starters & Sides Made Easy and Kids Cooking Made Easy debuted in December 2013. The latest addition to this series of specialized cookbooks is Dairy Made Easy, released just in time to adorn your Shavuos table with tempting treats and delightful delicacies that will wow even lifelong carnivores. Both Leah and Victoria’s names are well known throughout the cooking world with Victoria being the driving force behind Ami Magazine’s Whisk section and Leah authoring Fresh & Easy Kosher Cooking as well as co-founding

kosher recipe website CookKosher.com. In Dairy Made Easy, the two turn out a collection of recipes of all types, for all occasions. If you are looking for a fun cereal alternative for breakfast, try Sour Cream Pancakes, decadent Chocolate Croissant Rolls or a variety of breakfast shakes ranging from a Peach Cobbler Smoothie to the more nutritious Green Shake, or for the coffeeholics among us, the Blended Coffee Frappe. Your dairy lunches and suppers are about to get a complete makeover with recipes reminiscent of your local dairy bistro but easy enough to make at home, including the Roasted Veggie Galette, Grilled Avocado Sandwich and Caramelized Onion Calzones. Old favorites like grilled cheese, pizza and eggplant parmesan turn up in novel ways including the Grilled Cheese Toast Salad, where cubes of pestoed grilled cheese stand in for croutons, the tomato sauce-less Piz-

za Bianca topped with sautéed onions, mozzarella, fresh basil and parmesan cheese, and the very satisfying Eggplant Parmesan Wraps. No dairy cookbook would be complete without an array of sinfully decadent treats and there are plenty of those here as well, including three cheesecakes, one of which weighs in at a very slimming 180 calories or less. Save room for the Peanut Butter Creme Brulee, the Peach and Struesel Napoleon made with store-bought wontons, and the incredibly irresistible chocolate ganache topped Chocolate Cheese Muffins. No cookbook in the Made Easy series would be complete without a whole host of extra features. Want recipes for staples like homemade marinara, pizza dough, Israeli pizza sauce and even ricotta and cream cheeses? Want to find out more about the many cheeses available today for the kosher consumer? They are all

French Mushroom Soup 6 servings 2 Tbsp butter 1 large onion, cut into thin strips 8 oz. baby bella mushrooms, cleaned and sliced 5 cups vegetable broth 1 cup milk 1 tsp kosher salt 2 cups croutons 6 oz. sliced mozzarella cheese Melt butter in a medium pot over low heat. Add onion and sauté until golden, 10-12 minutes. Add mushrooms and continue to cook until soft, 5-7 additional minutes. Add vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Simmer for 20 minutes. Stir in milk and season with salt. Add croutons to the surface of the soup. Layer cheese over the croutons. Simmer for an additional 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted (some of the cheese will melt into the soup and the rest will remain on top). Serve by ladling the soup and some of the crouton/cheese topping into each bowl.

here and a very welcome addition is a Make it Light section which puts several of the recipes on diets and includes an eye-opening guide explaining how to use Greek yogurt in place of butter, oil, sour cream, mayonnaise, cream cheese and heavy cream. We took the opportunity to chat with Leah and Victoria about their latest cookbook. What made you guys decide to take this one on? Leah Schapira: It was a no brainer. Everyone loves dairy food. There’s something about dairy dishes that is very comforting. Victoria Dwek: Like many people, I make dairy dinners twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and I needed new ideas. If we need new ideas, I’m sure others out there do too.


May 30, 2014 | The Magazine | 19

D A I LY L I V I N G What are your favorite recipes? VD: I’m an ice cream fan, so if I was a reader flipping through the pages, I’d be rushing to make and dig into the Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream. That’s my family’s favorite summer dessert. But the recipe that truly won my heart was the Tres Leches Cake. I can usually resist cake, but not that one. LS: My favorite definitely needs to be the Sweet Chili Fries and the pizza (any of them). I also love the Arancini Balls and the Avocado Sandwich. Did you say one favorite? VD: Can you tell that we have different taste buds? For so many people, dairy is the ultimate comfort food. Why do you think that is? LS: Pasta and cheese is a combination that is ultra-comforting and when people think of dairy food, they think of that. But in our cookbook, we show you that dairy isn’t just about pasta (no need to worry, we’ve got plenty of pasta dishes too).

VD: I never thought of it that way. But I guess way more people turn to ice cream versus steak when they need cheering up. Is it possible to do a dairy meal that is both filling and not a disaster, calorie wise? VD: Absolutely, and it’s probably easier to pull off than with a meat meal. LS: Like all dishes, it’s about choices. There are lower fat content cheeses and now, Greek yogurt. VD: I think that balance is the key, even when you have a heavier pizza or pasta main dish. I’ll balance them with a light salad and soup. We have lots of those in the book. Pizza is not more calories than meat when you’re having one slice instead of three. And I like to think that cheese is protein. Years ago, cheese pretty much meant American cheese and yogurt was just yogurt, while today we have leben, yogurt and Greek yogurt. What are your thoughts on how the kosher market continues to evolve with so many exciting new products? LS: New products on the market are

all about demand. Manufacturers roll out new products as consumers’ sophistication grows and they request them. VD: Because we both also work in the food magazine world, we’re also able to see how food trends evolve on a weekly basis. We’re able to gain a sense of which new products have become refrigerator staples and which are still special purchases. That influences which ingredients we use in the recipes. We have certainly all found ourselves enamored with frozen, blended drinks and the book contains four of those, each one very different. How many different types of shakes did you consider for this book and what kind of interesting combinations did you come up with? VD: People are also very busy, so often, drinks become the meal on the go. There are lots of great smoothies out there, but our main criteria for our Peach Cobbler Smoothie, for example, was that it should be light and use a minimal amount of ingredients that are easy to remember. What’s the point of a complicated drink? It also helps that it could be made in advance and served in a pitcher for company. As far as our other shakes, we knew we needed a coffee shake, a green type of health shake, and a more indulgent milkshake. There’s one of each type in the book. Tell me the truth. How much weight

Pomegranate and Apple Salad 4 servings 1 head Romaine lettuce, chopped 1 apple, diced or sliced seeds of ½ pomegranate 1 grapefruit, segmented 2 Tbsp finely diced red onion

Dressing: ¼ cup light mayonnaise 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar 1 Tbsp water 1 tsp. sugar 1 tsp. kosher salt a pinch coarse black pepper 2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese

1. In a large bowl, combine lettuce, apple, pomegranate seeds, grapefruit, and red onion. 2. Prepare the dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, vinegar, water, sugar, salt, pepper, and Parmesan cheese. Toss dressing with salad.

did you gain taste testing recipes for this book? LS: My lips are sealed! The trick in eating all the goodies is “moderation.” VD: Yup. When you know you have to eat for your job, you’re extra careful on the other days. What future volumes do you have on the horizon?   LS: Our next book is called Secret Restaurant Recipes. It’s not part of the Made Easy series, but it’s a super exciting project. The book is a collection of popular recipes from the menus of top kosher restaurants around the world. We’ve included everyone’s favorites (quick...what’s your favorite restaurant?). Look for it next year, in the fall.

The Wonder Of G-d’s World

W

hat a wonderful world the Almighty has created! The magnificent blue sky; the golden sun that shines its warmth and its health upon us; the great mountains that tower up to the Heavens, their snowcapped peaks glistening; the lovely lakes and lush green fields – all these things attest to the majesty and grandeur of the Holy One Blessed Be He. Then, of course, there are the creatures that roam the face of this wonderful world. Each one, be he small or great, has a definite place on this earth and a specific reason for being. What? You question this? Do you wonder at times what possible purpose some little insect might have for being? This is exactly the question that David HaMelech once asked. He, too, wondered about the need for a little spider in this world. He was soon to see, however, that there was a very good reason for her creation. Indeed, the answer was to save the life of the future King of Israel. David And Shaul Before David became king he was the greatest general in the army of Shaul HaMelech. No man fought more bravely, no soldier more courageously than the Sweet Singer of Israel. One day, however, after returning from a great victory over the Pilishtim, David, Shaul and the returning armies were greeted by a joyous group who ran out to meet

them with dances and songs. And to celebrate the victory, as they danced, they sang: “Shaul has slain his thousands, but David his tens of thousands.” Shaul HaMelech was deeply insulted. The people considered David a better warrior than he! From that day on, his jealousy of the young David grew and grew until he decided that David posed a threat to the kingdom. He decided that David must die! David Flees David was forced to flee for his life and he escaped to the deserted Cave of Adullam. There he crept into the furthest, darkest corner and lay on his back weak and exhausted. Little did he know, however, that a spy for the king had seen him and at that very moment was hurrying to inform on him. As David lay in the dark, damp cave, he saw a little spider crawling about. Even in his suffering and discomfort David did not stop reflecting upon the world and the Almighty. “I wonder,” he thought, “why G-d created this ugly spider? What benefit does she offer the world that she should have merited being brought unto this earth?” To his amazement, it was as if the spider had read his thoughts, for she said: “Know you, David that nothing the Almighty ever made was created for naught.”

To Help David “I know this, little spider,” replied David, “but I must confess that though there must be some reason for your spinning your countless webs, I cannot see it.” “And yet there is, David. There is a very important reason as far as you are concerned.” “What do you mean, little spider?” “I mean that the Holy One, Blessed Be He has sent me to this cave to save you from the hands of Shaul.” David could not refrain from laughing. “The Almighty has sent you, little spider, to help me? Pardon me for doubting you but I need a great miracle now – lightning to strike the soldiers who pursue me – and not a little insect.” “And yet,” insisted the spider, “you will see. I will be the one to save you.” The Web And so speaking, the spider crawled to the mouth of the cave and began to spin a web, cleverly and swiftly. David watched in fascination as the little spider spun her delicate threads. Little by little, the mouth of the cave began to be covered with the silky strands until soon it was completely covered. Just then, David heard the tramp of many feet coming down the path leading to the cave. “It is Shaul and his soldiers,” he

cried in panic. “I must try to escape while there is yet time.” “No, no,” cried the spider. “If you try to leave the cave you will surely be seen. You must stay here. Have faith and you will see that you will be saved.” Shaul Arrives David saw that he had no choice but to obey the advice of the spider and he lay huddled in fear as the soldiers reached the cave. “The spy said that he saw David in the area of the cave. Let us enter and see if he is still inside.” David shrank back, expecting the soldiers to enter momentarily. Suddenly, however, he heard the voice of Shaul HaMelech himself: “No, it is impossible for David to have entered this cave. Behold the web that covers the entire mouth. Had David entered, he would surely have broken the web.” To David’s amazed relief he heard the soldiers turn around and continue on their way. “I am saved! I am saved, little spider,” he cried. “Indeed, you are,” replied the little insect. “And do you know what it was that saved you?” “Yes, yes. It was you and the magnificent web that you wove. Now I see what you meant. It is indeed true that the Almighty in His great wisdom created nothing for naught. All – even the tiniest insect has a reason for being and a place on earth.

Chapter Sixty-Eight

Solid Evidence “Medication bottles in the cottage?” Reb Michoel paled. “Then it really is them! Shimoni and his friends are dangerous! They have no morals, and they’ll stop at nothing to get their way!” Suddenly he was silent, and then a thoughtful expression passed over his face. “I wonder if Navon will look at things differently now…” Avi looked at him queerly. He had no idea who Navon was – Reb Michoel had never mentioned the name of the lawyer he’d consulted. He also had no idea why Reb Michoel wasn’t more worried about his father, when they now had concrete evidence that people were planning to harm him. Nonetheless, he hurried to reassure him that he was taking all necessary precautions. “I hid your father’s medicine in the shoe drawer, so don’t worry – no one will think of looking for it there. And I put empty bottles on the kitchen shelf, just in case.” There was only one problem with that – the elderly Mr. Sofer couldn’t figure out what was going on. Why was Avi hiding his medicine? All his questions were rebuffed with strange excuses, and he was becoming more and more suspicious.

But Avi would not be deterred from his task. This was a matter of life and death. Reb Michoel left early the next morning, but not before Avi promised him that he would carefully examine every single pill before giving it to Mr. Sofer. Later that day, Reb Michoel found himself once again sitting stiffly in the attorney’s office, relieved that Navon had agreed to meet with him again. Seeing the lawyer’s impatience, Reb Michoel got straight to the point. “I believe that our case can now be presented as a damages suit,” he began. The attorney raised his eyebrows and motioned for Reb Michoel to continue. He listened in interest as Reb Michoel related the latest developments, his expression growing more and more intrigued. By the time Reb Michoel had completed his account, Navon no longer resembled a bored attorney doing someone a favor by hearing his tale of woe, but rather the proverbial cat that had just swallowed the canary whole. “Rabbi Sofer, you’ve got yourself a case!” he cried, his nostrils flaring in excitement. “The first thing I will do is get a warrant for the police to search the cottage and gather evidence. Then I’ll submit an emergency appeal on grounds of immediate threat of homicide. I believe that things will move quickly once I convince the relevant people of the gravity of the situation.” Money talks, Reb Michoel thought, as he examined the four-page contract stipulating that 30 percent of compensation would be paid to the attorney in the event they won the case. He signed indifferently; it wasn’t the money that motivated him

but the knowledge that there was now a chance that his father would be able to live out his remaining years in peace. *** Even a day later, Auntie Breindel was still so flustered that she forgot to offer us tea and cookies when we arrived. Yonasan and I exchanged confused glances when we sat down – Auntie Breindel didn’t even sit down opposite us, but instead paced around as she gestured dramatically at the papers spread all over the table. “See this? Those men can’t do a thing! My Marcy discovered that they, or someone paid by them, tampered with the documents – but she found the originals! She and Mr. Portman!” I stared at her blankly, totally bewildered. As usual, it was Yonasan who knew what to say, and eventually managed to extract the full story from her. Marcy worked at the Housing Ministry, and she’d found out that the property deeds to the Shimoni cottage had been stolen. But even more sensational was Mr. Portman’s discovery that the true owners of the ramshackle cottage were not the Shimoni family at all… “Look!” Auntie Breindel crowed triumphantly. “Here it is, in black and white, that a Menachem Sofer purchased the entire property along with the garden around it. And there is no record of any subsequent sale! Which means that Menachem Sofer’s heirs own the entire valley!” “Wow,” Yonasan and I breathed, totally taken aback by this unexpected

turn of events. “Do you think those thugs know about this?” I asked Auntie Breindel. “Without a doubt,” she declared. “They did a very thorough job, and they would have gotten away with it, if it hadn’t been for the old handwritten archive and Mr. Portman’s determination to get to the bottom of things.” “This story goes back decades!” exclaimed Yonasan, busy examining the photocopied papers. “Menachem Sofer bought that cottage over sixty years ago. It’s almost like he foresaw what would happen in the future…” *** Yonasan and I walked home almost in silence, still overwhelmed. I was holding a file of papers that Auntie Breindel had pressed into my hands, insisting that the one who had started the mitzvah should finish it too. Yet how could I, when Abba had forbidden me to stay involved? “Well, I can help you out a bit – I’ll tell my father, and he’ll tell Reb Michoel,” Yonasan offered. “They speak almost every day. But you’ll have to tell Rav Miller.” “I don’t know – my father won’t be pleased, and he’ll be sure to find out. I guess I’ll just have to tell him everything and let him tell the rav himself,” I concluded. *** “So, what do you say?” Sam asked Nate, who was sitting cross-legged on his bed in the room the boys shared. “I reserve the right to remain silent,” Nate retorted. “The food’s awesome!” Zack exclaimed. His comment was met with unanimous agreement.

“And Rabbi Shifrin’s a great guy,” Zack added, and no one denied it. “Although this place isn’t so hot…” He gestured at the walls and tiny window of the stuffy apartment that served as their dorm. “But it’s supposed to be temporary. That’s what Rabbi Shifrin says.” “That’s what he says,” Nate cut in. “But you know how it goes – lots of temporary things end up becoming permanent.” “The paint’s peeling, the windows rattle, the floors creak, and the faucets all leak,” Sam grumbled. “And that’s barely half of it,” Nate added darkly. “Come on, guys. Give the man a chance!” Zack protested. “He’s promised to look for somewhere better.” “One month. I give him one month to come up with a better place than this. If he does, fine. If not, I pack my bags and move on. You guys with me?” “I don’t know. The food is good,” Zack reminded him of the culinary delights they were enjoying breakfast, lunch, and supper. *** Even Yonasan agreed that his mother was the greatest cook in the world… He forced down another meatball just as his father entered the kitchen. “I just spoke to Reb Michoel,” Rabbi Shifrin related with a broad smile. “And…” Yonasan asked impatiently. “Menachem was indeed his grandfather, a simple, honest, and extremely modest man. He passed away suddenly about twenty years ago, so I guess he never got around to telling your Mr. Sofer about the deed. Reb Michoel said he’s going to call his uncle in America to see

if he remembers anything. In any case, he plans to add trespassing on private property to his suit, which should definitely get those developers out of the way.” Rabbi Shifrin smiled at his son and added, “Such a story of hashgachah pratis…” “There’s something else you’re not telling me!” Yonasan exclaimed after gazing keenly into his father’s eyes. “There is indeed, but it’s going to have to wait until you finish those meatballs on your plate!” Rabbi Shifrin replied with twinkling eyes. Yonasan grinned, but then groaned when he saw the remaining one and a half oversized meatballs on his plate. The news would have to wait; it was going to take time to force those meatballs down his throat when he was sure he was already stuffed to the gills! *** Abba did not look at all pleased when I handed him the documents that Auntie Breindel had photocopied for us. “Didn’t I tell you to stay out of this?” he asked sternly. “I know, and I’m really not getting involved,” I insisted. “I’m just being Auntie Breindel’s delivery boy. She told me that these documents are very important, and that we must show them to the rav as soon as possible.” Abba perused the documents while I started to explain how Auntie Breindel had come to have them in her possession. When he reached the last page, his eyes widened in astonishment, and he even forgot that he was supposed to be annoyed with me. “Unbelievable!” he cried, grabbing his hat and jacket to hurry to Rav Miller’s house.
