Fearing Bias, Israel Keeping Distance From UN Probe Into Gaza Fighting

The Guns Of August And Divine Providence By Ed Lion

By Ben Sales

The 100th anniversary of the start of the Great War prompted me to dig out an old family photograph that had stunned me as a child. A creased and worn black and white picture, it depicted a young man wearing a spiked World War I German army helmet. “What’s that guy with a German helmet doing in our family photos?” I had asked my father. Bemused, my father, Kurt Lion of blessed memory, responded, “Don’t you recognize Uncle Sigmar?” He laughed. “You just saw him last week. That photo was taken just after he was drafted into the German Army, way back in 1914.” I was seven years old when I first saw the photograph but I already knew the general story of my German-Jewish family’s history in Europe. Some in the family like Sigmar and his older brothers had emigrated to America in the early 1920s, before the Nazi rise to power. Others – including my father, his parents, and several sets of his uncles, aunts, and cousins – remained in Germany and were trapped in the

TEL AVIV – The United Nations probe into the Gaza conflict hasn’t even begun, but Israel already is convinced it won’t end well. In a resolution adopted by a vote of 29-1 with 17 abstentions, the UN Human Rights Council moved last month to establish a commission of inquiry “to investigate all violations of international humanitarian law and international human rights law in the Occupied Palestinian Territory.” The United States cast the sole vote against. Last week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu criticized the council for choosing to investigate Israel rather than nearby crisis zones such as Iraq or Syria, and implied he would not cooperate with UN investigators. “The report of this committee has already been

written,” Netanyahu said following a meeting with visiting New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. “The committee chairman has already decided that Hamas is not a terrorist organization. Therefore, they have nothing to look for here. They should visit Damascus, Baghdad and Tripoli. They should go see ISIS, the Syrian army and Hamas. There they will find war crimes, not here.” Israel has been down this road before. Following the end of the last Gaza conflict, in early 2009, its government refused to cooperate with a UN investigation led by the South African jurist Richard Goldstone. The probe, dubbed the Goldstone Report, alleged that Israel had intentionally targeted civilians, though Goldstone later personally retracted that allegation. Israel rejected the original report as inaccurate and biased.

Gaza Rocket Fire Violates Cease-Fire; IDF Responds Israel launched a series of strikes in Gaza on Tuesday following fresh Hamas rocket attacks that were launched despite a cease-fire. Three rockets from Gaza landed in open areas near Beersheba and two were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system near Netivot. The rocket attacks came despite a temporary cease-fire that was extended Monday night and scheduled to expire at midnight on Tuesday. In light of the violation, Israel recalled its negotiating delegation from Cairo. Israeli and Palestinian negotiators have been attempting to forge a long-term cease-fire through indirect Egyptian-brokered negotiations. (JNS)

Hamas West Bank Operation Aimed To Start New Intifada Hamas planned to start a third intifada and seize control of the West Bank from Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian Authority, the Shin Bet security service said. On Monday, Shin Bet said it arrested 93 Hamas operatives in the West Bank in May and June who were planning a series of massive attacks on Israeli targets, especially the Temple Mount, in order to start the conflagration. Terror cells were set up in 46 Palestinian West Bank towns and villages – including in and around Jenin, Nablus, eastern Jerusalem, Ramallah, and Hebron. (JTA)

U.S. Officials: No Change In Procedure For Arming Israel U.S. officials denied reports of a change in the procedure through which the government supplies arms to Israel. Speaking to reporters, State Department Deputy Spokeswoman Marie Harf said: “Let me be clear: There has been no change in policy, period.” But she also said that, “Given the crisis in Gaza, it is natural that agencies take additional care with deliveries as part of an inter-agency process.” Harf’s statements were in reply to questions based on a report that appeared in the Wall Street Journal, which said the White House was delaying the completion of a sale of Hellfire missiles to Israel and that the Obama administration has made even routine arms transfers subject to White House and State Department approval.

Pro-Palestinian Protesters Prevent Israeli Cargo Ship From Unloading In Oakland By Hana Levi Julian JewishPress.com Pro-Palestinian protesters prevented an Israeli cargo ship from unloading at a California port over the weekend. The protesters gathered at the Port of Oakland to stop a ship from Zim Integrated Shipping Services, Israel’s international maritime cargo company, from docking and unloading. The protest was under the auspices of the Block the Boat coalition organized by the San Francisco-based Arab Resource and Organizing Center. The ship docked at the port Sunday evening after remaining at sea on Saturday to avoid arriving in the middle of a protest by thousands of pro-Palestinian demonstrators. Unionized dockworkers at the port on Sunday honored the picket line and refused to unload the ship. “Workers honored our picket and stood on the side of justice, as they historically have,” the center said in a statement on its website. “Oakland said no to Zionism and blocked the boat for an entire weekend. This is the first time in history that this has happened. Israeli apartheid is falling one port at a time.” Several hundred Oakland protesters gathered in a picket line Sunday after the ZIM vessel docked at about 5:30 pm. That was some 24 hours after it was forced to circle in the Pacific Ocean to avoid a mob of

Israel Keeps Distance (Continued from Front Page)

This time, the commission will be chaired by William Schabas, a Canadian-born professor of international law at Middlesex University in London. Schabas said in an Aug. 12 interview with Israel’s Channel 2 that it would be “inappropriate” to assert that Hamas is a terrorist organization. Last year, Schabas said that Netanyahu would be his “favorite” leader to see tried at the International Criminal Court. Schabas’s father is Jewish and he sits on the advisory board of the Israel Law Review. In the Channel 2 interview, he said he would not let his personal opinions affect his investigation. “What someone who sits on a commission or a judge has to be able to do is to put these things behind them and start fresh, and this is of course what I intend to do,” Schabas said. “It’s in Israel’s interest to be there in that discussion and give its version of events. If it doesn’t, then that leaves an unfortunate one-sided picture of it.” Israeli cooperation could have softened his report’s conclusions, Goldstone wrote in the 2011 Washington Post op-ed in which he backed down from the report’s most scathing criticism of Israel. Goldstone noted that subsequent investigations by the Israeli military indicated it was not Israel’s intent to target civilians. “Although the Israeli evidence that has emerged since publication of our report doesn’t negate the tragic loss of civilian life, I regret that our fact-finding mission did not have such evidence explaining the circumstances in which we said civilians in Gaza were targeted, because it probably would have influenced our findings about intentionality and war crimes,” Goldstone wrote. “Israel’s lack of cooperation with our investigation meant that we were not able to corroborate how many Gazans killed were civilians and how many were combatants.” Among Israeli legal experts, there is broad agreement that Israel must do its part to present its version of events, even while disagreeing about how best to do that. Only Israel’s state comptroller has indicated that he will be investigating the Gaza conflict. Amichai Cohen, an international law expert at the Israel Democracy Institute, said the comptroller’s probe is insufficient and that Israel should launch an

thousands at the same port the previous day. A few dozen police officers monitored the picket line, according to KTVU TV, which interviewed 26-year-old Mohamed Shehk, media and communications director of the Oakland-based Critical Resistance group. “As a Palestinian, I have always been a strong supporter for the Palestinian cause for liberation,” Shehk told the news outlet. He added that he also supports “various movements of liberation around the world.” “We will not stand for the murdering of Gazans,” he said. The ultimate goal of the blockade, said protesters, is to stop the company from unloading at the Port of Oakland altogether. They plan similar blockades against ZIM in Tacoma and Seattle, organizers said. The ILWU dockworkers’ union chose to honor the picket line and refused to unload the vessel. A similar blockade against ZIM was backed by the union in 2010. Saturday’s massive anti-Israel rally was covered only by independent bloggers and the UK-based newspaper The Guardian. Sunday’s blockade was covered by local TV stations KTUV and KPIX bur received no national coverage. One of those involved in organizing the demonstration, Arab Resource and Organizing Center executive director Lara Kiswani, said her organization was discussing “how to escalate our tactics.” – Supplemental reporting by JTA

investigation by experts. “The comptroller himself doesn’t have knowledge in international law, in criminal law, in military law. That’s not his specialty,” Cohen told JTA. “You need something independent and transparent.” Hillel Neuer, executive director of the Geneva-based NGO UN Watch and a vocal critic of the Human Rights Council’s treatment of Israel, said Israel should do what it did in 2009: publish accounts from the conflict that show its side of the story without directly cooperating with the investigation. “If the UN decides to have a one-sided inquiry, they will write a one-sided report,” Neuer said. “I’m confident Israel will make sure that the commission will have no excuse to say they didn’t have the information.” Shlomy Zachary, a lawyer with the Palestinian legal rights group Yesh Din, urged Israel to cooperate with the United Nations, noting that its decision to work with a 2010 UN investigation of the so-called flotilla incident helped mitigate criticism of Israel. That probe, known as the Palmer Commission, was charged with investigating the storming of a Turkish boat aimed at breaking Israel’s naval blockade of Gaza. The report ultimately condemned the raid, but it also criticized the conduct of protesters on board the ship and determined that the Gaza blockade was legal. “When Israel cooperated with international bodies, the results were in favor of Israel,” Zachary told JTA. “When Israel is not willing to cooperate, it creates the suspicion it has something to hide.” Neuer agreed that the 2010 probe was a good model for UN investigations, but he noted that it was supervised by the UN secretary-general, not the Human Rights Council. Neuer said that given the commission’s record of bias, Israel’s options are more limited. Ultimately, the conclusions of the latest investigation will not be legally binding on Israel. But if its conclusions are harsh, it could further ratchet up international criticism. Cohen said that could put added pressure on Israel to exercise restraint should another round of conflict take place. “The point in these commissions isn’t just to research the past, it’s to tell the future,” Cohen said. “The main problem is that a commission will say from now on, this or that should be prohibited. This is very problematic for Israel. That will make it harder next time.” (JTA)

A Pundit’s Prophetic Words By JASON MAOZ Last week The Jewish Press carried an op-ed column by Charles Krauthammer titled “Israel and Hamas: Does No One Remember Anything?” The piece was a study in penetrating clarity; in other words, typical Krauthammer. It’s little wonder his book Things That Matter: Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes and Politics (Crown Forum) topped the nonfiction bestseller lists for several months in late 2013 and early 2014 – a highly unusual feat for a collection of previously published newspaper and magazine columns. Probably my favorite piece of writing from Krauthammer appeared as the cover story of the November 9, 1998 issue of The Weekly Standard and was titled “The Coming Palestinian State.” As I noted several years back in one of my Monitor columns, the article, which unfortunately is not included in Things That Matter, fairly shouted crystal ball. (Note to Monitor readers: I hope to resume the column in the near future on at least an occasional basis.) Krauthammer began “The Coming Palestinian State” with a defense of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s performance at the Wye River summit (this was, of course, Netanyahu’s first go-round in the prime minister’s chair), which had been derided by critics on both the left and the right. Netanyahu, Krauthammer wrote, had by the time of his election in 1996 come to accept Oslo as a fait accompli – had in fact campaigned not on a platform of abrogating the treaty but of insisting on Palestinian compliance and reciprocity. “The point,” argued Krauthammer, “is that Netanyahu never was a zealot. He has long believed that a solution to the Palestinian question would require some territorial compromise. He was never a ‘Land of Israel’ ideologue. He would, of course, have preferred to hold on to every inch for security reasons. But he understands realities.” Jason Maoz is senior editor of The Jewish Press. He can be contacted at jmaoz@jewishpress.com.

Netanyahu’s primary goals were to halt the one-sided nature of the negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority and to somehow safely steer the country through, if not completely around, the interim territorial withdrawals agreed to by the previous Israeli government. Yasir Arafat had been under the impression that even before the start of “final status” negotiations Israel would hand over approximately a third of the disputed land in each of three redeployments – in effect leaving Israel with no bargaining chips just as the key issues of Jerusalem and Palestinian statehood were placed on the table. “Netanyahu’s entire strategy for the last two years,” Krauthammer explained in that 1998 article, “undertaken at huge diplomatic and personal political cost, has been to reduce Arafat’s expectations. He had to make Arafat realize that whatever the provocations, whatever the diplomatic damage, however sour Israeli relations with the Arabs, however damaged Israeli relations with the United States, however many rock-throwing and tear-gas incidents this would provoke on the West Bank, Arafat was simply not going to get 90 percent of the land in the interim phase. “On this he won. Wye ratifies the victory. Arafat had 27 percent of the territories when Netanyahu came to power. Wye gives him 13 percent more. Oslo’s interim phase will end with Israel having given up 40 percent of the land. “From the Israeli point of view, this is an extraordinary achievement. It leaves Israel with a serious chunk of territory on the West Bank to bargain with.” It was when he turned his attention to the specifics of what Arafat received at Wye that Krauthammer’s tone took a darker turn. That additional 13 percent of land promised to Arafat, he pointed out, was crucial not so much for its size as for the isolated pockets of Palestinian-controlled territory that would now be linked. And with Gaza and the West Bank connected by two special roads, the land under Arafat’s jurisdiction suddenly appeared more than ever like a real state. The biggest prize of all, he added, was that President Bill Clinton would shortly travel to Gaza to formally ad-

dress a large conclave of Palestinians – a visit ostensibly tied to an understanding that Arafat would convene the Palestine National Council for the purpose of excising the anti-Israel clauses in the PNC charter, though it was always unclear how serious the Palestinians were about the undertaking. What was clear, wrote Krauthammer, “is that an American president will come to Palestine to bless its Congress, address a Palestinian festival celebrating coming independence, and launch it on that road.” A road, it should be said, that Clinton fully supported. Krauthammer made the point, downplayed or ignored by Jews who loved to contrast Clinton so favorably with the first President Bush, that at the 1991 Madrid peace talks the Bush administration “explicitly declared that it would not support a Palestinian state.” No such declarations were ever heard from Clinton, or, for that matter, from Clinton’s successor, George W. Bush – who, while exhibiting a warmth toward Israel that was hard to discern in his father, became the first sitting U.S. president to champion, in unambiguous terms, an independent Palestinian state. In the end, Krauthammer feared, Wye would be seen to have set the groundwork for the creation of a Palestinian state and the outbreak of war. (Proving that even the most prescient of mortals will not get everything right, Krauthammer predicted that Arafat in a few months would fulfill his pledge to declare a Palestinian state on May 4, 1999.) It was only a matter of time, Krauthammer was convinced, before one side or the other would be forced, most likely by cataclysmic events, to surrender its chief claims. “That,” he concluded, “is the crisis waiting to happen. For now, Wye is the bridge to that crisis, the last agreement between Israel and the Palestinians we are likely to see before the fateful showdown.” So wrote Krauthammer two years before Arafat launched the Second Intifada in September 2000, ushering in one of the bloodiest eras in Israeli history and in the process wrecking the delusions of Israel’s so-called peace camp.

Last Defense Of Obama’s Defenders On Israel Has Evaporated By SETH MANDEL There is much to say about last week’s Wall Street Journal report on the further deterioration of U.S.-Israel relations under President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu. But there’s one aspect in particular that stands out. And that is the fact that if the basic structure of arms transfers from the U.S. to Israel is described accurately in the story – and it appears it is – the last refuge of Barack Obama’s defenders on his attitude toward Israel has evaporated. Obama never hid his contempt for the Israeli government or the majority of Israel’s voters. Even as a candidate in 2008 he let loose, ranting about Likud in a way that showed his lack of understanding of the basics of Israeli political life as well as his desire to push back on Israel’s supporters in the U.S. After he became president, only the most dedicated leftists were surprised when he, in entirely predictable fashion, picked silly fights with Israel and tried to collapse its elected governing coalition. (Though it can also be argued that those leftists were cheered by this course of action.) There was always, however, one defense Obama’s fanboys in the media would fall back on: at least he is dedicated to ensuring Israel has what it needs to defend itself. This was generally thought to be a fair point, though never as compelling as they hoped it would be. After all, “Obama hasn’t abandoned Israel to a bloody genocide at the hands of its neighbors” is quite a low bar to clear. But the Journal story takes apart the idea that Obama has always had Israel’s back when the chips were down: White House and State Department officials who were leading U.S. efforts to rein in Israel’s military campaign in the Gaza Strip were caught off guard last month when they learned that the Israeli Seth Mandel is assistant editor of Commentary magazine.

military had been quietly securing supplies of ammunition from the Pentagon without their approval. Since then the Obama administration has tightened its control on arms transfers to Israel. But Israeli and U.S. officials say that the adroit bureaucratic maneuvering made it plain how little influence the White House and State Department have with the government of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu – and that both sides know it. The munitions surprise and previously unreported U.S. response added to a string of slights and arguments that have bubbled behind the scenes during the Gaza conflict, according to events related by senior American, Palestinian and Israeli officials involved. So the essential resupply was not approved by Obama, because it didn’t have to be. It’s simply the default setting: the two countries’ defense departments have military cooperation on autopilot. But when Obama found out, he put a stop to the automatic resupply. In other words, Obama sought to downgrade the U.S.-Israel military relationship. A general defense of Obama on Israel’s security goes something like this, from Obama’s dedicated press ally Jeffrey Goldberg: “On matters of genuine security, Obama has been a reliable ally, encouraging close military cooperation, helping maintain Israel’s qualitative military edge over its regional rivals and, most important, promising that he won’t allow Iran to cross the nuclear-weapons threshold.” You tend to hear some variation on that theme from time to time, usually when Obama is busy picking fights with Israeli leaders. Diplomatically, he may be consistently harsh on Israel, so the thinking goes, but at least

he’s absolutely committed to Israel’s security. (The Iran part of that Goldberg quote, by the way, is also up in the air, considering the president’s consistent attempts to water down or derail sanctions on Iran and his desperation for a deal that lets Iran drag out the process.) But even that case has imploded. As the Journal explains: On July 20, Israel’s defense ministry asked the U.S. military for a range of munitions, including 120-mm mortar shells and 40-mm illuminating rounds, which were already kept stored at a pre-positioned weapons stockpile in Israel. The request was approved through military channels three days later but not made public. Under the terms of the deal, the Israelis used U.S. financing to pay for $3 million in tank rounds. No presidential approval or signoff by the secretary of state was required or sought, according to officials. A U.S. defense official said the standard review process was properly followed. Now, if that were all there was to the story, it would only partially demolish the flimsy case for Obama’s supposed dedication to Israel’s security. After all, just because Obama wasn’t involved in the resupply doesn’t mean he opposed it. But then we come back around to the Journal story’s larger revelation, in which Obama sought to put the brakes on the process. Obama’s defenders have always had an uphill climb because the president’s diplomatic hostility is not unconnected to Israel’s security. But now we know the president is not fully committed to Israel’s security – and, since the general process of how Israel procures ammunition goes around the president, the public is left to wonder if he ever was.

Until talk of a Gaza cease-fire started percolating, the U.S. was largely supportive of Israel’s Operation Protective Edge. President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry rarely missed an opportunity to proclaim Israel’s right to defend itself (though with the caveat that every effort be made to minimize civilian casualties). As the war went on, the U.S. refrain included statements to the effect that there could no rewarding of Hamas’s aggression. Yet at some point, American statements began referring to the need for cease-fire negotiations to include such matters as Hamas’s demands for a lifting of the Israeli and Egyptian blockades, the easing of restrictions on civilian travel through now closed crossings out of Gaza, and the opening of a Hamas seaport and airport. At first glance this sudden, albeit tentative, legitimizing of Hamas’s political agenda seemed out of place, given the U.S. government’s inclusion of Hamas on its list of terrorist organizations. And it also unceremoniously pulled the rug out from under Israel. In fact, the change is not just contrary to the longtime U.S. position toward Hamas, it also seems to run counter to virtually all of the Obama administration’s stated goals in the Middle East. For years the president and more recently Secretary Kerry have been touting the virtues of a twostate solution to the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians. Why then would they act in a way that bestows esteem on Hamas, which vociferously opposes an enduring agreement of any kind with Israel, and that boosts Hamas in the eyes of Palestinians as the engine of Palestinian success, inevitably inviting a comparison with the hapless Mahmoud Abbas who, at least publicly, champions a two-state solution? And now, according to a story broken by the Wall Street Journal, Hamas can even claim that its efforts

resulted in America’s holding back on arms supplies to Israel. Another reason why it makes no sense to strengthen Hamas is that doing so will inevitably benefit Iran. Despite the current differences between Hamas and Iran over Syria, does anyone doubt a Hamas seaport or airport would be an enormous boost to Iranian interests? And why would the U.S. align itself on these issues with Turkey and Qatar, longtime advocates of Hamas’s interests? Both have served as significant props for Hamas’s scuttling of any serious talk of a resolution between Israel and the Palestinians. It is also inexplicable that the Obama administration would act in defiance of the interests of Arab countries that would be key to securing a two-state solution. It is no secret that Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and Jordan are diametrically opposed to Hamas, if only as a matter of self-preservation vis-a-vis the militant Islamist world. Moreover, as a collateral matter, what kind of signal is the United States sending to Islamists around the world? That ultimately there need be no fear of Washington, even respecting its loyalty to allies? These developments are perplexing, to say the least. So much so that even Obama’s first secretary of state is distancing herself from the administration’s Mideast mess. To be sure, Hilary Clinton has an eye on a White House run in 2016, so her sincerity is suspect. Whatever her motivation, one can only hope Messrs. Obama and Kerry get their foreign policy act together well before the next presidential campaign begins in earnest. For better and for worse, they are the leaders we have – and will remain so for another two and a half years.

Folly Of Compromise

Re “No Compromise With Hamas� (editorial, Aug. 15): Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is responsible for the safety of the citizens of Israel. What should he do when people who want to destroy Israel fire rockets into his country in order to kill his people? Should he compromise and limit the destruction of enemy capabilities as long as fewer than, say, ten Israelis are killed each day? Should he reduce that number to five? Furthermore, should he permit the rebuilding of the Gaza terror tunnels leading into Israel? These tunnels were designed for the purpose of mounting attacks on civilians in nearby Israeli communities. Israelis do not want innocent civilians to be killed. But Netanyahu is well aware that Hamas uses civilians as human shields. President Obama should recognize that civilian deaths in Gaza are the result of Hamas’s actions and that as soon as Hamas stops launching rockets into Israel, peace will come to that area. Arthur Horn East Windsor, NJ

Dismantling The Times

Jerold Auerbach is to be commended for his meticulous dismantling of The New York Times in

terms of its coverage of the war in Gaza (“All the ‘News’ That’s Fit to Castigate Israel,â€? front page essay, Aug. 15). There is no doubt in my mind that the Times’s current Jerusalem bureau chief, Jodi Rudoren, is the worst the Times has had in that position since Deborah Sontag more than a decade ago. And Rudoren doesn’t let up. Just a few days ago CAMERA’s Alex Safian analyzed an Aug. 11 piece by Rudoren on the Gaza seaport Hamas wants built. Rudoren wrote that just three months after construction of the port began in 2000, Israel destroyed it: “It was here that a European contractor began building a commercial seaport back in July 2000, only to have its work destroyed by Israeli tanks and bombs within three months. Now, Palestinian leaders trying to negotiate terms in Cairo for a durable truce have made the revival of the seaport project a prime demand.â€? The article also noted that the port was “first promised by the Oslo Accords in 1993.â€? Writes Safian: “Got the picture? The port was promised in 1993, and when construction began in 2000, Israel, for some apparently mysterious reason, almost immediately sent its tanks and bombs to destroy it‌.

“The Gaza port construction was indeed destroyed in 2000, but the Times neglects to tell its readers that this was in fighting that was part of the Second Intifada, the violent Palestinian war against Israel that followed Yasir Arafat’s refusal of the Clinton peace proposals. “And yes, a seaport authority was mentioned in the Declaration of Principles, and in more detail in the Interim Agreement‌. But, of course, the negotiations were a two-way street: Israel agreed to certain things, like allowing a Gaza port, in return for the Palestinians agreeing to certain things. And one of the main Palestinian agreements was that in the Palestinian territories there would be only one armed Palestinian entity, and that would be the police force of the Palestinian Authority (PA).â€? In other words, the idea that a second armed entity, in this case Hamas, would enter the picture was not something remotely envisioned by negotiators. But Rudoren, either through ignorance or duplicitousness, conveniently left that crucial information out of her article, just as she neglected to mention the circumstances in which the port was destroyed in 2000.

When My Father Fought The Anti-Semites In Lodz A Brief Tribute on his Yahrzeit – 28 Menachem Av By NATHAN LEWIN

My father, Dr. Isaac Lewin, z”l, was elected to the Lodz City Council at the age of 30, shortly after he and my mother, a”h, settled in Poland’s second-largest city. Lodz’s population was one-third Jewish, and my father’s reputation as an articulate spokesman for Jewish religious causes was already established by 1936. He was not only the elder son of the Reisher Rav, Aaron Lewin, z”l, hy”d, who was an extraordinary gaon and a brilliant orator in Polish twice elected to the Polish Sejm, but my father had written scholarly articles and opinion pieces for widely distributed Hebrew, Yiddish, and Polish publications while in his twenties. The task of defending the rights of Lodz’s Jewish residents was not an easy one. One of two volumes of my father’s essays published by Mossad HaRav Kook in 1988 (“Demuyot Ve-Iruim Historiyim”) contains 15 pages describing speeches he made during the four years he served in the Lodz City Council, including translations of transcripts of sharp exchanges with rabid anti-Semites in that elected body. Today’s anti-Semites want to throw Jews out of Israel into the sea; in the Thirties it was common for their predecessors to call on Jews to “go to Palestine!” My father reports in his essay that on November 9, 1936, a card-carrying member of the openly anti-Semitic National Democratic Party broke into a Jewish-owned store on Kolinski Street and murdered Yisrael Isaac Zendel and Yaakov Yoseph Berkowitz. These murders followed the party’s public campaign of hatred against Lodz’s Jewish population. Zendel left a widow and two infant sons. Berkowitz left a widow and seven young children. My father proposed that the city provide some financial assistance to Nathan Lewin is a Washington, D.C. attorney who has argued numerous cases in the U.S. Supreme Court.

the bereaved families. His resolution was scheduled for debate on January 28, 1937, and he was allotted five minutes to speak in its favor. That morning another Lodz Jew, Shimon Klemner, was murdered by a National Democratic Party member. The council meeting was held in the evening. My father stood to speak and managed to utter only “honorable council” when he was shouted down by Casimierz and Bronislaw Kowalski, two brothers on the council who were members of the anti-Semitic party. Casimierz shouted, “Take care! Hold your tongue.” Bronislaw joined in with a derisive half-Yiddish half-Polish warning that delivered the same message to the Jewish speaker. My father noted that he had, by that date, attended four meetings of the council and could more easily speak openly of the murders that had taken place on the streets of Lodz. He was, he said, effectively inviting the angel of death into the council meeting. At this point, the transcript reflects disturbances on the floor and the mayor calling for “Silence, silence.” My father continued, “Maybe the tears of orphans and widows will influence you to finally do what is best for the country and the city. For several months terrible crimes have been committed on the streets of Lodz. The anti-Semitic campaign has borne fruit. And this morning another victim has been added, a young Jew, 27 years old, who harmed no one, was stabbed and killed on Sterling Street.” At this point the transcript reflects that one of the Kowalskis interrupted, “So what? Only one? Bravo, bravo. And how many Poles have you killed?” My father responded: “This is an urgent matter. It deserves your silent attention.” Another of the Jew-haters on the council, Mr. Czernick, then interjected, “In 18 years only one? Only one

dog-soul? I am ready to kill hundreds of you in one hour.” The mayor, ringing a bell, called again for silence. My father continued with a protest against the vile murders and called for cooperation in the city of Lodz, which owed so much to the ingenuity and efforts of its Jewish residents. The anti-Semitic campaign had resulted in many victims, he said, and he ended with a request that the City Council lead Lodz’ population to peace. “The municipality must teach the people the ways of peace and call on all its citizens to live in peace.” Another rabid anti-Semite, by the name of Schweidler, then called out, “In Palestine you can speak of peace.” My father replied: “We are proud of Palestine and you have no right to tell us what to do in Palestine.” At this point, Casimierz Kowalski yelled: “Go to Palestine!” The transcript then reflects disturbance on the floor, and the mayor again ringing his bell. My father followed with a request for justice, interrupted by a call from the floor, “What justice? Maybe Talmudic justice!” He responded, “I am proud of Talmudic justice. The Talmud is the source of righteousness and justice.” In a footnote to this summary of a stormy Lodz City Council debate, my father notes that because their remarks appeared to endorse the murder of Klemner, Kowalski and Czernick were criminally prosecuted. They swore that the council’s transcript was inaccurate and that they had not said what was reported. They were acquitted in a trial held in Lodz in October 1937. The prosecution appealed and a Warsaw appellate court reversed the lower-court decision in January 1938. The defendants were sentenced to six months’ imprisonment, with execution of the sentence deferred for three years. Poland was invaded by Hitler in September 1939.

A Frank Discussion With The UN Secretary-General By Rabbis MARVIN HIER and ABRAHAM COOPER

Rabbi Marvin Hier is dean and founder of the Simon Wiesenthal Center; Rabbi Abraham Cooper is the Center’s associate dean.

• Why, we asked the secretary-general, wasn’t the Human Rights Council investigating the underground terror tunnels whose sole purpose was to kidnap Israelis and launch a mega-terrorist strike on Rosh Hashanah? • How is it, we asked, that UNRWA, the UN agency mandated to help Palestinian “refugees,” would allow its facilities to house Hamas rockets and then return them to the terror group when word got out? Why didn’t any of the thousands of UNRWA employees who know exactly from where Hamas is firing rockets inform the secretary-general that Hamas was violating international law by situating its launchers in heavily populated neighborhoods, sometimes just a few meters from UN facilities, in order to attack Israeli civilians? We didn’t accept the secretary-general’s explanation that UNRWA is not there to make political statements; after all, during the fighting UNRWA officials repeatedly gave interviews to the international media criticizing Israel’s actions. We suggested to Mr. Ban that he himself had crossed a line with his rush to judgment in characterizing Israel’s attack on a UN school as “criminal,” when it wasn’t at all clear who was responsible for the attack. • Why, we wanted to know, does he insist that 75 percent of the Palestinian casualties in Gaza were civilian, when Israel has provided the names and ages of 900 Hamas terrorists killed in the conflict? • And why does he criticize Israel for “disproportionality” when it is confronted with Hamas’s strategy of weaving its military and terror infrastructure in heavily populated civilian areas with many mosques and hospitals? We pointed out that if these new “rules” had been in place at the end of World War II, Winston Churchill and the president of the United States would have been the leaders put on trial at Nuremberg. • The secretary-general was also asked how it was

that UNICEF, an organization devoted to protecting children – and one heavily supported by Jewish philanthropy for 50 years – condemned Israel for targeting children when in fact the opposite was true. • We raised the issue with Mr. Ban of the toxic attacks on Jews in Europe, Australia, and the Americas and urged him to take all necessary measures to ensure that the next UN General Assembly, which meets during the High Holy Days, doesn’t turn into another hate-fest against Jews. • Finally, we told the secretary-general that if the rights of democratic countries to respond to naked aggression against their citizens are further curtailed, the only winners of future wars will be the terrorists. Overall, the Jewish leaders were quite disappointed with many of the points the secretary-general offered in response. We disagreed with his position that he is only the CEO of the United Nations and we pointed out that as head of the organization he had a responsibility to reign in the anti-Israel Human Rights Council and to demand fairness and balance rather than a lynching disguised as an impartial investigation. Unfortunately, the secretary-general held firm to his position that 75 percent of Palestinian casualties in Gaza were civilians and that Israel’s actions in Gaza constituted a “disproportionate” response. Despite our disappointments, Jewish leaders will continue to press officials in Washington and elsewhere to defend the justice of Israel’s struggle; to demand that terrorists like Hamas and their sponsors be held accountable for their war crimes and crimes against humanity; and to insist that European democracies fully defend the rights of their Jewish citizens. It will be a long, uphill battle – one that will demand the kind of solidarity Jewish leaders brought to our meeting with Ban ki-Moon.

Last week two delegations, one from the Simon Wiesenthal Center and the other from the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, sat down for a 90-minute meeting with UN Secretary-General Ban ki-Moon in his office for an open and frank discussion about the latest war in Gaza ignited by Hamas. Anyone who has met Mr. Ban knows he is a person with deep respect for Jewish values. A former foreign minister of a country (South Korea) with neighbors like North Korea, Communist China, and Russia, he reiterated to the 11 Jewish leaders in the room – including Malcolm Hoenlein, Abraham Foxman, and leaders from Bnai Brith and Hadassah – that “I understand very well Israel’s security concerns.” The secretary-general and his team took notes as we outlined the Jewish world’s deep concerns: • The audacity of the UN Human Rights Council in appointing a commission to investigate the Israeli incursion into Gaza without ever mentioning the name Hamas, which is the only reason Israel had to (re)act in Gaza. Legal experts we consulted listed at least 19 violations of international law by Hamas, including crimes against humanity victimizing both Israelis and Palestinians. We have no doubt the current commission will attempt to outdo the outrages of the original Goldstone Report, an investigation so fatally flawed that it was later disowned by Judge Goldstone himself. Heading the new legal lynching is a Canadian jurist who previously urged that former president Peres and Prime Minister Netanyahu be put on trial.

David Grossman – The Pain And The Pity By MOSHE DANN

Moshe Dann, Ph.D., is a historian, writer and journalist. His collection of short stories, “As Far As the Eye Can See,” will be published in September by the New English Review Press.

That seems to characterize Arab societies, but what evidence is there that it is true for Israelis? Grossman naively asks: “How can it be that we have been suffocating together inside this bubble for over a century?” Inside that bubble of Arab violence and terrorism, Jews have been building a state, while Arabs try to destroy it. For Grossman, apparently, it’s all the same. “How could [Israel],” Grossman asks, “have wasted the years since the last conflict without initiating dialogue, without even making the slightest gesture toward dialogue with Hamas, without attempting to change our explosive reality?” Grossman makes no reference to Israeli assistance, concessions, and negotiations with the Palestinian Authority – which pays Hamas’s salaries – nor PA incitement, nor the tolerance of the Israeli branch of Hamas, nor the daily supply of water, electricity, food, and building materials that pour from Israel into Gaza, nor Hamas/Islamic Jihad missile and terrorist attacks, nor the unambiguous vows to wipe out Israel. He accuses Israel of ignoring “the Arab League initiative that could have enlisted moderate Arab states with the power to impose, perhaps, a compromise on Hamas” – although there is no evidence to support his conclusion. This is a “conflict that could have been resolved years ago,” he says simplistically, without discussing the responsibilities of Arabs and Palestinians for what has happened. If only Israel would “alleviate the suffering of the Palestinian people, especially those in Gaza, by making peace with the Palestinians [which] can also be a basis for peace with the other Arab states.” We assume that means compliance with all of their demands: withdrawal to the 1947 UNGA Par-

tition Plan lines, or the Armistice lines of 1949; the return of all Arab Palestinian “refugees” and their descendants to Israel; and dividing Jerusalem. He seems oblivious to Hamas’s weapons smuggling and the role of Hamas terrorists in fomenting terrorism in the Sinai Peninsula and assisting Muslim Brotherhood groups in Jordan, Syria, and Iraq. Should Hamas be given a safe harbor in a failed state? Nor does Grossman fault UNRWA for allowing its facilities to be used by terrorists, and using civilians as human shields. Grossman seems incapable of condemning Arab and Islamist terrorism, the indiscriminate targeting of civilians, placing rocket launchers and weapons in schools, hospitals and mosques. Instead, he rationalizes it as a response to legitimate grievances. This misses the moral point: nothing justifies the deliberate targeting of civilians. Nothing. There is no excuse for engaging in and advocating genocide and violent jihad; such behavior is evil. What makes Grossman’s argument dangerous is that by defending Hamas terrorism because of what he considers legitimate demands, any and all Islamic terrorism – including al Qaeda’s 9/11 attacks – can be justified. If attacking Israel as the “Little Satan” can be justified, then attacking America as the “Great Satan” can also be justified. Blaming Israel for not succumbing to Arab demands and refusing to accept the reality of Arab/ Hamas/Islamist terrorism threatens not only Israel’s existence but encourages the forces of savagery in the region and around the world. Using Grossman’s metaphor, upon the grindstone of terrorism we can all be ground into ashes and dust. We need Grossman’s eloquence and sensitiveness – but even more, we need the truth.

In a July 27 New York Times op-ed (“Stop the Grindstone of Palestinian-Israeli Violence”), Israeli author David Grossman’s call to end violence appears to be motivated by idealism. Grossman’s pain is authentic; he abhors violence. The pity is that such a gifted writer is so tangled in politics (the two-state delusion) that he fails to understand the danger of Arab terrorism, and has abandoned his own people and the army in which his son sacrificed his life. Blaming Israel for the violence in Gaza, he ends up justifying Hamas’s terrorism. Acknowledging the legitimacy of Israeli fears of Hamas violence, he balances it with Hamas accusations that Israel is “occupying Gaza” by prohibiting entry into Israel, restricting access to Judea and Samaria, and preventing smuggling of weapons. Presenting suicide bombers and missile attacks as merely defensive weapons of the helpless and oppressed, he justifies terrorism: “What is the response to Gazans who say that the tunnels and rockets are their only remaining weapons against a powerful Israel? In this cruel and desperate bubble, both sides are right.” This confuses perpetrators with victims. Does preventing Hamas from acquiring weapons give it the right to murder Israelis? Is Hamas terrorism justifiable because Israel is more powerful? This turns morality inside out. Grossman equates the two sides: “They both obey the law of the bubble – the law of violence and war, revenge and hatred.”

52 Ways To Improve Your Life (First of Three Parts) The Gemara tells us our nation is compared to the moon. One of the reasons for this analogy is that just as the moon renews itself every month, so we are expected to renew ourselves constantly and work continuously on self-improvement. The Chofetz Chaim teaches that there are four distinct time periods when a Jew should make a cheshbon hanefesh, a spiritual accounting. They are: nightly before going to sleep; Erev Shabbos before Kiddush; Erev Rosh Chodesh; and before the New Year. In Masechtas Berachos (19a), the Gemara teaches that if you see a sage sin in the night, don’t even think about it the next day for he definitely already did teshuvah. So we see that the description of a wise person is one who is constantly checking himself and rectifying his mistakes with alacrity. The Midrash tells us, “The word ‘now’ conveys repentance.” This means the great enemy of self-improvement is procrastination, and the primary way to ensure success in this area is by training oneself to change now rather than later. In the Yom Kippur liturgy we say, “Hashem does not desire the death of a sinner; rather his turning from his ways, and then he will live.” Note that an immediate and total change is not expected but rather just a turn in the right direction. Thus it is critical at this time of year, when Hashem renders a decision on our very lives, to show Him we are attempting to improve ourselves. As we head toward the New Year, let us realize that the Hebrew word for year is shanah. It can mean sheinah (to repeat) or sheenah (to change). This is the challenge before us. Will this year be just another repeat of previous years, or will we make it a year of change and find favor in the eyes of Hashem? Interestingly, other units of time in the Hebrew language also convey the message of change. Thus, chodesh (month) means l’chadeish, to renew. Sha’ah (hour) means to turn, as in the verse “V’el Kayin v’el minchaso lo sha’ah – And to Kayin and his offering He did not turn.” It is my hope that this list I compiled will help readers approach the Heavenly Throne with the preparation necessary to be zocheh b’din (successful in one’s judgment) and earn a year of good health, prosperity, and happiness. 1. I will make Hashem my very first thought every morning as I open my eyes with a passionate thank you – modeh ani l’fanecha. 2. I will wash my hands generously, not gingerly, removing the tumah, rededicating myself to the service of Hashem, and readying myself for prayer. So too I will not just “touch the tap” when coming out of the bathroom or before my prayers but will always wash my hands correctly. (The Chazon Ish said that correct morning netilas yadayim can ward off depression.) 3. I will make it a habit to greet my loved ones with a smile in the morning, starting off their day with the assurance that they are loved and cared for. (This is hard but very rewarding.) 4. I will adopt a mantra: do not scream in the home, do not scream in the home, do not scream in the home. (This one is even harder than #3.) 5. I will say the birchas HaTorah with special fervor and introduce this habit to my children, showing them how to say “v’haarev na es divrei Torasecha – Please sweeten your Torah in our mouths” with a heartfelt plea that we should learn to enjoy our Torah studies. I heard from one of our gedolim that this is a great segulah to acquire a zest for learning. 6. I will try to always attend minyan, recognizing that my prayers at home might be disregarded but at minyan they never are. 7. I will remember that davening is called the service of the heart and if I pray without kavanah I’m

really missing out on most of the effectiveness of tefillah. As the Chovos Halevavos states, prayer without thought is like a peel without the fruit and a body without a soul. 8. With this in mind I will finally make it my business to learn the meaning of the more difficult parts of prayer, such as the daily “yom,” recognizing how ridiculous it is that I have been saying it for so many years without meaning and realizing happily that when I study it once I’ll understand it for the rest of my life. With the help of Hashem we will continue with items nine through twenty-nine next week.

Exodus From Israel To Egypt 100 Years Since The Turkish Expulsion Of Jews By Rafael Medoff This year marks the 100th anniversary of the expulsion of thousands of Jews from Turkish-ruled Palestine to Egypt, in a dramatic reversal of the historic exodus from the Land of the Pharaohs to the Land of Israel. But from that tragic episode in 1914 would emerge a Jewish fighting force that would help liberate the Holy Land from the Turks. Turkey entered World War One in October 1914, joining Germany in its fight against Russia, England, and France. In Turkey’s eyes, all Russian citizens, including the many Russian-born Jews living in Palestine, were now enemy nationals. Fueled by wartime hysteria and Muslim religious sentiment, the Turkish authorities in the Holy Land turned against the country’s foreign-born Jews. On Dec. 17, the Turkish governor of Jaffa, Beha A-Din, ordered the mass expulsion of the 6,000 Russian-born Jewish residents of that city. Over the course of the next three months, thousands more Russian-born Jews were expelled from Palestine or fled just ahead of the deportations. By the spring of 1915, more than 11,000 Russian Jewish exiles were living in British-occupied Egypt. Yaakov and Frieda Brodetzky were among the deportees. “My parents were newlyweds when the expulsion was ordered,” Moshe Brodetzky, 88, of Los Angeles, told JNS. “They spent their ‘honeymoon’ – and the next three years – in exile in Egypt.” With generous support from the Egyptian Jewish community, the exiled family built a new life for itself in the Mafruza and Gabbari refugee camps near Alexandria. “My father earned a living by becoming a teacher in a Talmud Torah that the refugees established for their children,” Brodetzky noted. Meanwhile, back in Turkish Palestine, the rest of the local Jewish community struggled to survive. Some, including two of Frieda’s brothers, went into hiding to avoid being inducted into the Turkish army, where anti-Jewish discrimination was rife. Others, such as future Israeli prime minister Moshe Shertok (Sharett), sought to ingratiate themselves with the authorities by volunteering to serve in the armed forces. Frieda’s father devised a unique way to elude the Turkish censors and communicate with his exiled daughter.

For Jews Displaced By Ukrainian Fighting, Israel Beckons By Cnaan Liphshiz Each time he dispatches a car into Lugansk, Rabbi Shalom Gopin readies himself for hours of anxious anticipation. The scene of brutal urban warfare between Ukrainian troops and pro-Russian separatists, this eastern Ukrainian city now has no regular power supply, running water or cell phone reception. Mortar rounds can fall without warning. Much of the population, once 450,000, has fled. But despite the risks, Gopin, the city’s exiled chief rabbi, has dispatched over a dozen cars to Lugansk, each one intended to quietly ferry Jews to a camp he runs for the internally displaced in Zhytomyr, near Kiev. More than 117,000 people are internally displaced within Ukraine, the United Nations reported earlier this month. Recently, Rabbi Gopin welcomed several cars to Zhytomyr carrying a total of 13 passengers. For Gopin, each arrival brings relief, but also sadness over the disintegration of a community he has spent 15 years building. Initially intended to provide temporary shelter for Jews fleeing the fighting in the east, the facility, which functions mainly as a summer camp, is now home to 250 displaced Ukrainians. Gopin says more than half have no plans to return. “It’s a sad reality,” Gopin told JTA. “Many people are now realizing the bad situation may remain, so people who never even thought about making aliyah are going ahead with it. The city, my home, is emptying of Jews as it slowly consumes itself out of existence.” The Jewish Agency for Israel, the quasi-governmental agency responsible for facilitating immigration to Israel, is expecting more than 3,000 arrivals from Ukraine this year – a 33 percent increase over the 1,982 Jews who immigrated in 2013.

More than 1,550 individuals have immigrated to Israel from Ukraine in the first five months of 2014 alone, more than double the 693 who arrived in the corresponding period last year. Hundreds of the new immigrants hail from Lugansk, a city of 7,000 Jews. Many others come from Donetsk, a rebel-held city with more than 10,000 Jews that is under constant shelling as government forces prepare to storm it. “My sense is that 80 to 90 percent of the Jewish population of Donetsk already emptied out of the city, including my own family,” said Sasha Ivashchenko, who fled the city last month and is waiting to make aliyah with his wife. The couple married recently in a ceremony in Donetsk held with the background noise of bombardments by Ukrainian warplanes. In Zhytomyr, Alexander, a refugee in his 50s who asked to be identified only by his first name, fled Lugansk after three men with rifles entered his small packing factory in the city’s industrial zone and informed him it had been “commandeered for the city’s defense.” One of the men, who Alexander believes were pro-Russian separatists, asked him to leave. “So now even if the fighting stops, I expect there will be very little for me to come back to,” Alexander said. “I stayed here because this was my place, my business. Now there’s no point.” When Alexander left the city late last month, public transportation was still operating. But rail traffic ground to a halt on July 26 following the shelling of the train station, effectively trapping much of the population – including hundreds of elderly Jews – in a city that many warn is the site of a looming humanitarian catastrophe. Currently there are 47 urgent cases of Jews in need of rescue, according to Eleonora Groisman, the founder of a nonprofit that maintains a database of Jews seeking

rescue. Among them is a woman in her 80s trapped inside her Lugansk apartment. Getting such people out is a complex and risky operation that requires traversing a circuitous route through Russian territory and greasing the palms of forces encountered along the way. Using his contacts with rebel leaders, Rabbi Gopin has established an escape route in which a driver picks up the evacuees in Lugansk, crosses the border into Russia and then returns to Ukraine farther north in an area not held by separatists. “You have to understand, the rebel-held area and its surroundings are totally lawless,” said Gopin, a Chabad emissary who first settled in Lugansk 15 years ago. “So the car could get stopped and detained or turned back by rebels, suspicious government forces or even thieves preying on the helpless – complications that increase exponentially what is already a serious risk.” To deal with such possibilities, Rabbi Gopin provides his drivers with an envelope full of cash for bribes. “Luckily, we’re talking about bribes at around the $50 or $70, so that’s still affordable,” said Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, founder of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, the Jerusalem-based organization that has spent millions providing relief to Jews in Ukraine. To outsiders – and even to some Ukrainians – the decision by thousands of Jews to remain in a war zone seems incomprehensible. But it’s no mystery to Natan Sharansky, the Jewish Agency’s chairman, who was born in Donetsk. “The Jews who stayed, they are the hardcore,” said Sharansky. “They’ve watched friends and family leave throughout the 1990s and after, choosing every time to stay. But there comes a time when reality trumps even the hardcore.” (JTA)

SHABBAT FORSHPEIS RABBI AVI WEISS

WELCOME TO OUR WORLD

Adding And Subtracting From The Torah This week’s Torah portion gives us a curious mitzvah. It tells us not to add or subtract to the commandments (Deuteronomy 13:1). This seems to go against the idea of the ongoing development of Jewish law on the part of the rabbis (Deuteronomy 17:8-13). Consider, for example, one of the dietary laws. The Torah states that one may not eat meat and milk together. The rabbis take this prohibition and extend it to include the consumption of fowl and milk. Does this extension violate the prohibition of adding to the Torah? Rambam feels this in fact may be the case. He codifies that if one maintains that fowl and milk are enjoined by Torah law, this extension is a violation of adding to the Torah. However, if the rabbis declared that as an added precaution, because of the similarity between fowl and animal food, fowl together with milk is rabbinically forbidden, then including fowl as a rabbinic prohibition is perfectly legitimate (Laws of Mamrim 2:9). This idea helps explain a well-known midrashic comment on the Garden of Eden narrative. According to the text of the Torah, Eve tells the serpent that God had commanded that the tree of knowledge not be touched. Eve, however, adds to the decree. As the Midrash explains, God had only forbidden eating, not touching. The serpent then pushed Eve against the tree, declaring, “as you have not died from touching it, so you will not die from eating thereof.” In the words of Rashi: “She added to the command [of God]. Therefore, she was led to diminish from it” (Rashi, Genesis 3:3,4). One could argue that Eve acted properly; after all, she, like the rabbis, only tried to protect God’s commandment by extending the prohibition to touching. Her mistake, however, was saying that God had actually issued such a command. She should have declared that while God forbade eating from the tree, she decided as a precaution – as a “fence” around the law – not to touch it as well. Thus, rabbinic law is pivotal. Still, it is important to understand which laws are rabbinic and which are biblical in nature. One final note: Separate from rabbinic legislation and interpretation is the halachic realm of chumra. Chumra is imposing a very stringent observance of the law. While stringency can elevate spirituality, it is essential to know when a practice falls into the category of chumra and when it does not. Failure to make this distinction can often lead to the chumra becoming the only accepted practice. This can be dangerous because it can lead to a lack of understanding and intolerance of the sometimes-wide range of practices within a certain rabbinic law. So rabbis can extend the laws when there is a critical need, but they must do so with the realization of their responsibility not to blur the lines set out in the Torah. Throughout the ages rabbis have done so with the hope that their interpretations and legislations bring people closer to God and to one another. Rabbi Avi Weiss is founding president of Yeshivat Chovevei Torah and senior rabbi of the Hebrew Institute of Riverdale.

COVENANT & CONVERSATION RABBI LORD JONATHAN SACKS

Defining Reality One of the gifts of great leaders, and one from which each of us can learn, is that they frame reality for the group. They define its situation. They specify its aims. They articulate its choices. They tell us where we are and where we are going in a way no satellite navigation system could. They show us the map and the destination, and help us see why we should choose this route not that. That is one of their most magisterial roles, and no one did it more powerfully than did Moses in the book of Deuteronomy. Here is how he does it at the beginning of this week’s parshah: See, I am setting before you today the blessing and the curse – the blessing if you obey the commands of the Lord your God that I am giving you today; the curse if you disobey the commands of the Lord your God and turn from the way that I command you today by following other gods, which you have not known. (Deut. 11:26-28) Here, in even more powerful words, is how he puts it later in the book: See, I set before you today life and the good, death and the bad… This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Therefore choose life so you and your children after you may live. (Deut. 30:15, 19) What Moses is doing here is defining reality for the next generation and for all generations. He is doing so as a preface to what is about to follow in the next many chapters, namely a systematic restatement of Jewish law covering all aspects of life for the new nation in its land. Moses does not want the people to lose the big picture by being overwhelmed by the details. Jewish law with its 613 commands is detailed. It aims at the sanctification of all aspects of life, from daily ritual to the very structure of society and its institutions. Its aim is to shape a social world in which we turn even seemingly secular occasions into encounters with the Divine presence. Despite the details, says Moses, the choice I set before you is really quite simple. We, he tells the next generation, are unique. We are a small nation. We have not the numbers, the wealth nor the sophisticated weaponry of the great empires. We are smaller even than many of our neighboring nations. As of now we do not even have a land. But we are different, and that difference defines once-and-for-all who we are and why. God has chosen to make us His stake in history. He set us free from slavery and took us as His own covenantal partner. This is not because of our merits. “It is not because of your righteousness or your integrity that you are going in to take possession of their land” (Deut. 9:5). We are not more righteous than others, said Moses. It is because our ancestors – Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel and Leah – were the first people to heed the call of the one God and follow him, worshipping not nature but the Creator of nature, not power but justice and compassion, not hierarchy but a society of equal dignity that includes within its ambit of concern the widow, the orphan and the stranger. Do not think, says Moses, that we can survive as a nation among nations, worshipping what they worship and living as they live. If we do, we will be

subject to the universal law that has governed the fate of nations from the dawn of civilization to today. Nations are born, they grow, they flourish, they become complacent, then corrupt, then divided, then defeated, then they die, to be remembered only in history books and museums. In the case of Israel, small and intensely vulnerable, that fate will happen sooner rather than later. That is what Moses calls “the curse.” The alternative is simple – even though it is demanding and detailed. It means taking God as our sovereign, judge of our deeds, framer of our laws, author of our liberty, defender of our destiny, object of our worship and our love. If we predicate our existence on something – some One – vastly greater than ourselves then we will be lifted higher than we could reach by ourselves. But that needs total loyalty to God and His law. That is the only way we will avoid decay, decline and defeat. There is nothing puritanical about this vision. Two of the key words of Deuteronomy are love and joy. The word “love” (the root a-h-v) appears twice in Exodus, twice in Leviticus, not at all in Numbers, but 23 times in Deuteronomy. The word “joy” (root s-m-ch) appears only once in Genesis, once in Exodus, once in Leviticus, once in Numbers but 12 times in Deuteronomy. Moses does not hide the fact, though, that life under the covenant will be demanding. Neither love nor joy come on a social scale without codes of self-restraint and commitment to the common good. Moses knows that people often think and act in short-term ways, preferring today’s pleasure to tomorrow’s happiness, personal advantage to the good of society as a whole. They do foolish things, individually and collectively. So throughout Devarim he insists time and again that the road to long-term flourishing – the ‘good,’ the ‘blessing,’ life itself – consists in making one simple choice: accept God as your sovereign, do His will, and blessings will follow. If not, sooner or later you will be conquered and dispersed and you will suffer more than you can imagine. Thus Moses defined reality for the Israelites of his time and all time. What has this to do with leadership? The answer is that the meaning of events is never self-evident. It is always subject to interpretation. Sometimes, out of folly or fear or failure of imagination, leaders get it wrong. Neville Chamberlain defined the challenge of the rise to power of Nazi Germany as the search for “peace in our time.” It took a Churchill to realize that this was wrong, and that the real challenge was the defense of liberty against tyranny. In Lincoln’s day there were any number of people for and against slavery but it took Lincoln to define the abolition of slavery as the necessary step to the preservation of the union. It was that larger vision that allowed him to say, in the Second Inaugural, “With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds …” He allowed neither abolition itself, nor the end of the Civil War, to be seen as a victory for one side over the other but instead defined it as a victory for the nation as a whole. I explained in my book on religion and science, The Great Partnership, that there is a difference between the cause of something and its meaning. The search for causes is the task of explanation. The search for meaning is the work of interpretation. Science can explain but it cannot interpret. Were the ten plagues in Egypt a natural sequence of events, or Divine punishment, or both? There is no scientific experiment that could resolve this question. Was the division of the Red Sea a Divine intervention in history or a freak easterly wind exposing a submerged and ancient river bank? Was the Exodus an act of Divine liberation or a series of lucky coincidences that allowed a group of fugitive slaves to escape? When all the causal explanations have been given, the quality of miracle – an epoch-changing event in which we see the hand of God – remains. Cul-

Sacks Continued from p.14 ture is not nature. There are causes in nature, but only in culture are there meanings. Homo sapiens is uniquely the culture-creating, meaning-seeking animal, and this affects all we do. Viktor Frankl, the psychotherapist who survived Auschwitz, used to emphasize that our lives are determined not by what happens to us but by how we respond to what happens to us – and how we respond depends on how we interpret events. Is this disaster the end of my world or is it life calling on me to exercise heroic strength so that I can survive and help others to survive? The same circumstances may be interpreted differently by two people, leading one to despair, the other to heroic endurance. The facts may be the same but the meanings are diametrically different. How we interpret the world affects how we respond to the world, and it is our responses that shape our lives, individually and collectively. That is why, in the famous words of Max De Pree, “The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality.” Within every family, every community, and every organization, there are trials, tests and tribulations. Do these lead to arguments, blame and recrimination? Or does the group see them providentially, as a route to some future good (a “descent that leads to an ascent” as the Lubavitcher Rebbe always used to say)? Does it work together to meet the challenge? Much,

perhaps all, will depend on how the group defines its reality. This in turn will depend on the leadership or absence of leadership that it has had until now. Strong families and communities have a clear sense of what their ideals are, and they are not blown offcourse by the winds of change. No one did this more powerfully than Moses in the way he monumentally framed the choice: between good and bad, life and death, the blessing and the curse, following God on the one hand, or choosing the values of neighboring civilizations on the other. That clarity is why the Hittites, Canaanites, Perizzites and Jebusites are no more, while the people of Israel still lives, despite an unparalleled history of circumstantial change. Who are we? Where are we? What are we trying to achieve and what kind of people do we aspire to be? These are the questions leaders help the group ask and answer, and when a group does so together it is blessed with exceptional resilience and strength.

es to protect themselves from Israeli defenses. The videos also show missiles being fired by Hamas militants from apartment houses, and they use hospitals and mosques as weapons storage areas and launching sites. We traveled to the Gaza border and climbed into a tunnel – one of dozens – uncovered by Israeli forces that enabled Hamas terrorists to sneak into Israeli communities to commit their vile acts. These tunnels are particularly heartbreaking when you consider the cost to build them could have gone to building schools, hospitals, and housing for those most truly in need. We were shown the incredible Iron Dome defense system and came away feeling proud that it had been developed in partnership with the United States. It was also clear that Prime Minister Netanyahu is right: Israel uses rockets to protect civilians, while Hamas uses civilians to protect their rockets. Over the course of our visit, we were also blessed to meet a number of Israeli soldiers. These young men and women were from Israel, America and from nations around the world. Looking into their young faces and listening to their stories touched our hearts and reminded us that freedom and democracy often come with a price, sometimes a terrible price. Our trip was not all business all of the time. We also met a number of Israeli citizens and were greatly impressed by their optimism and energy despite living in a place where sirens warn them several times, day and night, of incoming Hamas rockets. We left Israel both inspired and

Last week’s diplomatic mission to Israel to express our solidarity with the Jewish homeland had a profound effect. The mission was important, which became abundantly clear when we boarded the El Al flight. The passengers on board, one after another, rose to thank Governor Cuomo, myself and our fellow delegation members for committing ourselves to demonstrating New York’s solidarity with Israel. Their outpouring of support reminded us that this trip was not only critical but also an extraordinary privilege. Although our stay was short, our itinerary was packed with eye-opening experiences and unforgettable discussions. Our meetings with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, President Reuven Rivlin, former president Shimon Peres, and Defense Secretary Moshe Ya’alon exposed us to the immense challenge of leading a nation and protecting a people who are faced with relentless attacks from terrorist forces whose primary goal is to erase Israel from the map of the world. The most poignant lesson we learned was about the vast difference between international media accounts of the conflict and the on-the-ground reality of defending the Jewish State. We viewed surveillance tapes showing Hamas militants firing missiles at Israel and then escaping in ambulanc-

A TASTE OF LOMDUS RABBI RAPHAEL FUCHS

ban in the midbar is a machlokes. Rabbi Yishmael maintains that they were allowed to eat meat only from a korban or from an animal unfit for a korban, namely a chaya (e.g., a deer). Rabbi Akiva maintains that in the midbar after klal Yisrael received the Torah they were allowed to eat meat from an animal without shechting it. The requirement to shecht an animal before eating it came into effect only when klal Yisrael entered Eretz Yisrael, as is mentioned in this week’s parshah. According to Rabbi Akiva if one wanted to eat meat from an animal in the midbar he would have to perform a process called nechirah. Rashi explains that nechirah is cutting from the nostrils down to the tail. According to both opinions the mitz-

The Origin Of Shechitah In this week’s Parshah, Re’eh, the Torah commands us that if we want to eat meat we must first shecht the animal. This command came as klal Yisrael were about to enter Eretz Yisrael. Hashem said that when klal Yisrael enters Eretz Yisrael they will have wide boundaries and it will not be very convenient to always come to the Beis Hamikdash every time one wants to eat meat. Therefore if one wants to eat meat he may shecht an animal any place that he wishes, outside the Beis Hamikdash. Whether klal Yisrael were permitted to eat meat that was not a kor-

PASSOVER 2014 AT BETH SHIFRA: A Festival to Remember We have passed over the festival of matzos once again and with the help of Beth Shifra and the generous contributors and dedicated staff, hundreds of people who otherwise would have had no Seder and no holiday have great pesach memories – some for the first time in their whole lives. Since 1970, Beth Shifra, Brooklyn-based organization have made it our mission help those of the New York Jewish community, who need help the most: poor people (and there are many), new immigrants, elderly people, shut-ins and just plain, ordinary people who otherwise might have little or unfortunately no connection more than we often realize with Yiddishkeit. “It was absolutely unbelievable,” marveled Rabbi Chaim Prussman who founded the organization 45 years ago and who has led it ever since. “We were able to serve hot meals and give food packages to very person that came everyone was served with a smile, and at no cost to them. We turned away no one!” with a great many people showing up for the sedars each night at Beth Shifra’s new Pesach headquarters, 6222 23rd ave, in Brooklyn. Rabbi Prussman said a long list of people deserve a big hakoras hatov for making Beth Shifra’s 2014 Pesach as successful as it was. Certainly, right near the top of the list is the management of the Jewish Center-Rabbi Goldstein and his congregants get a big yasher koach” , said Rabbi Prussman. We thank the following lecturers: Rabbi’s Alexander Guth, Rav Berkowitz, Rav Berkstein, Rabbi Tannenbaum, Rabbi Seidman, Mr. & Mrs. Goodstein, Rav Dov Kaplan and Shmuel Gershbind Esq. who embraced our participants with their inspired insights.. We are grateful to the Jewish Press, TV Views,Faigy at the Algemeiner, Zev Brenner, Country Yossi and Dcd Interactive Marketing for helping to publicize our work. We also want to thank our volunteers that helped package and disseminated them as well as Gregory, Faigie, Sandra, Frankie, Daniel, Howie and Mendel. The Sorcer family helped tremendously in distributing the food, and Simone was a right-hand-man from beginning to end. We also thank, Mitnadvim (718636-2384) donations of appliances, and our suppliers: Manishevitz, Kedem Wines, Gold’s, Streit’s Matzah Co, Rabbi Lebovic of GoKosher, Rabbi Hettelman, Benny – Globex Kosher Foods, BaTempte, Klein’s Ice Cream, Redi Record, RiteLite Toys, Gefen foods, Pomegranate, Quality Frozen Foods, Paperific on 38th and Met Council. The preparations were complicated by the fact that we couldn’t take over the premises of the place until four days before the holiday— but with everyone pulling together, the job got done. With Rabbi Lebovic of GoKosher overseeing the actual koshering process, along with Beth Shifra’s own mashgiach, Rabbi Hettelman, “everything was so clean, every inch of the refrigerator and the ovens were immaculate.”

Once the kitchen was prepared and the food was in place, the cook cooked all of the food, supervised by Rabbi Hettelman. “They started sunday and didn’t finish till late Sunday evening , and continued Monday before pesach till erev pesach. While the kitchen at the Jewish Center was being kashered and food and wine was being brought in to prepare for the holiday, other preparations were under way as well. A major task was getting the word out to New Yorks’ large and diverse Jewish community that there was a place where they could come and eat for the holiday – and it wouldn’t cost them a dime. Rabi Prussman sent out notices and paid advertisements about the upcoming Sedars and food distribution in Russian, Yiddish and English newspapers. Editor Ari Kagan from the Russian – language newspaper covered the Russian front and had it sent to a number of other Russian papers.; four Yiddish newspapers – Rabbi and Rebbitzen Friedman’s papers. The Title as well as Der Yid, The Blatt and the Algeimeiner Jouranal; six English newspapers – Country Yossi Family Magazine, TV Views, The Connections, Jewish Press, Twenties and Thirties and Hamodia. Colonial Records who cooperated with us in modifying our many different flyers designated for our different audiences: singles program, kiruv, families, various languages and kids programming. 10,000 Beth Shifra Russian/ English flyers were distributed in Boro Park and Bensonhurst were distributed by Reliable Circulars-Mitch. Two radio shows: Country Yossi and Zev Brenner. While all of this was going on at the Jewish Center, Beth Shifra, as usual, was also running Sedorim and festive meals on yom tov at Rabbi Mordechai and Sorya Sorcher at 2102 Avenue T. “It was a packed crowed for the Sedarim over a 100 each night and 60 at each meal” said Rabbi Sorcher. Please DO YOUR PART to help Beth Shifra pay for Passover and continue to serve our community year round, with a tax-deductible contribution: Beth Shifra, c/o 1719 Avenue P, Brooklyn, N.Y. 11229. Beth Shifra, P.O. Box 700, Brooklyn, N.Y. 11229 FOR MORE INFORMATION, PLEASE CONTACT US AT BETH SHIFRA at (718) 449-1397 , or visit its website: www.bethshifra. org. We are pleased to announce that this year we had 36,474 hits in March and 29,283 hits in April! Beth Shifra’s activities on behalf of New York’s Jewish community have been endorsed by many gedolim, other prominent rabbis and numerous community leaders. All these good times, kindness and mitzvas don’t happen by themselves. In addition to the inspiring donations of supplies and manpower, many expenses accrue on the way to the promised land. We cannot continue our indispensible services without your generous contribution.

A Humbling Lesson (Part III) The Talmud teaches that if there is ever a conflict, saving a life always has priority over mitzvah performance. An obvious example would be if someone’s life is in peril the person must go to the hospital on Shabbos and the driving to get to the medical facility does not constitute chillul Shabbos, but rather a fulfillment of the Torah injunction, “You shall live by them [the mitzvos],” from which the Talmud derives, “and not die by them.” There are, however, three exceptions – known as yehareig v’al ya’avor, sometimes referred to as the Three Cardinal Sins. Regarding these three critical transgressions, the law is that one must be prepared to give up one’s life rather than commit the sin. The specific application of when one must be prepared to sacrifice one’s life rather than violate a Torah precept pertains to idol worship, sexual crimes and – not derived from a Torah verse – murder. The reason that there is no specific verse regarding the latter, such as when under the threat of death you are ordered to kill someone or be killed yourself, is because a verse is not required to teach that which is logical. “Who says,” asks the Talmud, “that your blood is redder than another person’s? Perhaps the opposite is the case.” Regarding the last instance, the chassidic rebbe, Reb Simcha Bunim, noted that this seminal Talmudic ruling conveys an important lesson about humility. “The fact that we cannot kill an innocent person to save our own lives is based on the presumption that we cannot know whose life is more important in the eyes of God. If even in so crucial a moment we have no right to deem ourselves superior to another, what right can we possibly have to do so on less critical occasions?” Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, in his Codes of Jewish Ethics (volume I), highlights another ramification of this Talmudic teaching: Don’t exploit others, as historically was done through slavery, as is done today by those who overwork, underpay, or otherwise wrong their employees. How can one assume that one’s blood is more precious than the blood of those whom one mistreats? And this teaching has implications in far less serious areas than matters of life and death and exploitation. For example, a humble person will not push ahead of someone else in line. One who pushes assumes that his place is in front of where he currently is. And when he acquires that place he seeks a place even further ahead.

by Rabbi David Ashear

Think about living a life of no stress. No anxiety. No fear. Is it an impossible dream or can it be achieved? And can YOU achieve it? Our Sages’ clear answer to these life-transforming questions is: Yes. What it takes is emunah, faith. Faith in Hashem and His goodness, belief that He cares for you, and is completely involved in your life. If you believe that totaltotal ly — you’re on the path to emunah, the road that leads to real happiness. Living Emunah is based on Rabbi David Ashear’s “Daily Emunah” talks, which have transformed the lives of thousands of people. Through the classic lens of Torah thought as well as true-life stories we discover what emunah is and what it isn’t, and how to bring it into our homes, offices, and lives.

vah to shecht animals which one wishes to eat began only when bnei Yisrael entered Eretz Yisrael. According to Rabbi Yishmael one was not permitted to eat such an animal prior to entering Eretz Yisrael, while according to Rabbi Akiva one was permitted to eat animals if he would perform nechirah. The Gemara in Chullin 17a asks: According to Rabbi Akiva, after bnei Yisrael entered Eretz Yisrael, would one be allowed to eat the leftover steaks from an animal that one had performed nechirah on? The Gemara does not resolve the quandary, and leaves it as a teiku. Rashi explains that this question has no halachic bearing on us today, and pertained only to that generation. In essence, Rashi says that the Gemara is only asking the question for “drosh v’kabel s’char.” This is the same phrase that the Gemara uses in explaining why the parshiyos of ben sorer u’morer, ir hanedachas, and a house with tzaraas were written in the Torah, despite the fact that they have never and will never actually occur. Drosh v’kabel schar – learn and receive reward. The Rosh fundamentally disagrees with Rashi. He says that the Gemara would never contemplate a question that had no practical application. The Rosh therefore explains that this question can be applied to other common-day applications. For example: If one takes a neder upon himself not to eat a certain food beginning at a designated time, and he still has some of that food in his home when the neder begins, may he continue eating those items that he had from before the neder

began, or not? Similarly, if beis din decides to forbid something such as cheese of an akum, and one has some still in his possession. The Rosh says that this would be similar to the Gemara’s question regarding the leftover steaks from an animal that had nechirah performed on it in the midbar. Since the Gemara did not resolve the question it remains a safek. Therefore if the question pertains to an issur d’oraisa we will rule stringently. If the question regards an issur m’derabanan, then we will rule leniently, as is generally the case with all sfekei d’Rabanan. The Shaarei Teshuvah in Orach Chaim 551:11 quotes the Birkei Yosef who extends the logic of the Rosh to the leftover meat from Shabbos Chazon (the Shabbos in the Nine Days). The meat that was prepared for consumption on Shabbos Chazon was permitted to be eaten on that Shabbos. When Shabbos is over the prohibition to eat meat during the Nine Days resumes. The leftover meat from Shabbos should fall under the same category as the meat left over from the midbar when klal Yisrael entered Eretz Yisrael. Since refraining from eating meat in the Nine Days is only a minhag, we could be lenient and rule that one would be able to eat the leftover meat from Shabbos after Shabbos. The Shaarei Teshuvah says that although this would be permitted, if it is not the minhag in one’s place of residence one may not begin to enact this custom. This would fall under the category of poretz geder – a fence breaker, whom, it is said, will be bitten by the snake. For questions or comments, e-mail RabbiRFuchs@gmail.com

the wheat, 13 terrorists came out of a tunnel from Gaza into the fields of Kibbutz Sufa where they planned to carry out an attack on the kibbutz residents. The terrorists were counting on stealthily making their way from the tunnel to the kibbutz, camouflaged by the wheat fields. But when they emerged from the tunnel, there was no wheat at all and so they were immediately spotted and eliminated by Israel’s soldiers. A massacre was prevented. Rabbi Chaim Walder, the well known author, told the following story on his weekly radio program during the war, a story which he heard first hand. A religious man, we’ll call him Dovid, went to Gaza to distribute green tzitzis to soldiers going into battle. At the same spot where he was, there was an officer, we’ll call him Tomer, who was extremely anti-religious and started ranting against everything and anything that had to do with Judaism. Dovid asked him some very pointed questions, which challenged the officer’s way of thinking and opened him to listening to what Dovid had to say. Before they parted, Dovid wrote out the six words of Shema Yisrael and gave it to Tomer, telling him to say it twice a day, as well as during any time of danger. Dovid then wrote his own name and phone number on the bottom of the paper, and they parted – Dovid to the home front, and Tomer to the front lines. About a week or so later, Dovid received a phone call saying that he was wanted urgently in one of the hospitals where wounded soldiers were being treated. He went immediately and was brought to the bedside of Tomer, whose head and chest were heavily bandaged. Tomer told him that after he asked Dovid to be brought to him because he had experienced an outright miracle in the merit of what Dovid had taught him. Tomer had been severely injured in battle, and was lying on the ground, unable to move, when he saw a live grenade rolling towards him and about to explode inches away from his body. Unable to distance himself from the grenade, which was about to cause his certain death, Tomer suddenly remembered Dovid’s words and cried out with all his heart the Shema Yisrael that he had been practicing ever since his encounter with Dovid. At that moment, said Tomer, an absolute, undeniable miracle occurred and the grenade stopped just at the tip of Tomer’s weapon, which was lying on the ground beside him. Tomer was somehow able to fling the grenade back to where it came from and, against all logical possibilities, his life was spared. He called Dovid to his bedside to thank him and to tell him that now he knows that there is a G-d. The following story, reported by Rabbi Yosef ™ Mizrachi, appeared in the August 3 edition of

Some Of The Myriad Miracles Of This War By Naomi Brudner As in all of Israel’s wars, Operation Protective Edge, too, is filled with miracles. I’d like to share some of them with you, miracles that are clearly, absolutely Divine. Colonel Ofer Winter, commander of the Givati Infantry Brigade, describes an unquestionable miracle that he experienced during this war. He and his soldiers had planned a military action that was to take place before sunrise so that the darkness would conceal them and allow them to proceed undetected. However, the mission was delayed and they had no choice but to continue – even as the sun began to rise, rendering them visible to the enemy. Suddenly, Winter said, a heavy fog came down on them, and concealed them until they completed their mission. He compared it to the Clouds of Glory that protected the People of Israel when they traveled in the desert, and said, “It was really a fulfillment of the verse, ‘For the L-rd, your G-d is the One Who goes with you to give you victory.’ ” Colonel Winter added that during wartime the soldiers see many miracles. And when it comes to our enemies, the opposite happens. The following was told by Aharon Samet, the mashgiach of the Badatz Eidah Chareidis who is in charge of the wheat harvesting for shemura matzos. Because they needed wheat for two years because of the upcoming shemitta year, they needed to harvest green wheat. They went throughout Israel looking for suitable wheat but didn’t find any until they reached Kibbutz Sufa near the Gaza border (this is before the war) which, due to unusual circumstances (such as the farmers sowing the wheat in mid January whereas most other fields were sown in November and December), had just what they needed – two thousand acres of green wheat. Just a day or two after they completed harvesting and transferring all

Brudner Continued from p.28 Israel Today. A non-religious soldier was one of a group operating the Iron Dome in the Tel Aviv area. They spotted an incoming Hamas missile and it was clear that it was meant to hit the Azrieli Towers, a major Tel Aviv commercial center, the Kirya (comparable to the Pentagon) or the central Tel Aviv railway station. In any case, hundreds of lives were endangered. They immediately fired an Iron Dome missile to intercept the incoming rocket but it missed. They fired a second time and that, too, missed. This is extraordinarily rare, said the soldier. With only seconds left before the oncoming rocket would reach its destination, they fired another Iron Dome missile and this, too, missed. With only seconds left before the missile would reach its target and cause a terrible disaster, suddenly, said the soldier, a huge eastern wind appeared from nowhere and pushed the incoming missile out to sea where it fell into the water, harming no one. “We were all shocked,” said the soldier. He explained that the equipment they have is incredibly exact which makes missing a target almost impossible. Plus, they are aware of all meteorological factors and there was no wind at all before the one that came and prevented a great tragedy, and there was also no wind afterwards, either. It came from nowhere, he said, redirected the missile, and disappeared. As soon as he could leave his post, the soldier looked for someone who had tefillin and asked him to put them on him, and help him with the blessings. And he took upon himself to keep Shabbos, something he had never done. Shortly after that, he called a rabbi he once knew and asked where there was a yeshiva in his city. “I’m going to be released in a couple of months, and I want to learn in a yeshiva.” The miracle was that obvious. A mother of a chabdnik who brought packages of food and nosh from the home front to the soldiers said that her son told her the following true story. Some soldiers who had a short respite from the front lines were taking cover in a small house. They had been given food packages that had been sent to them from civilians who they didn’t know but who were concerned for their welfare and wanted to express their gratitude for their mesirus nefesh for Am Yisrael. One of the soldiers took out something to eat and saw a note attached to it that said: “I know that you are protecting me and this is a small way to show my appreciation. I just have one request – that you make a blessing before you eat what I sent you.” The soldier wasn’t religious and didn’t know how to make a blessing. He looked around and saw a religious soldier sitting in another corner of the room. The first soldier crawled over to him for help with making the blessing. As he finished reciting the blessing, a tremendous explosion shook the room. An RPG rocket had fallen exactly where the soldier had been sitting just seconds ago. The soldier burst into tears, knowing that his life had been

saved by a miracle. There is a true story that has been told in Eretz Yisrael and which has also reached the foreign press. In case you haven’t heard it – and even if you have – I’d like to share it with you: An interview was overheard in which an Arab asked a Hamas commander: “What’s the problem? Why aren’t you hitting your targets? Don’t you know how to aim?” To which he was answered: “We know how to aim very well. We are experts. But their G-d moves the missiles.” I’d like to share with you that Rabbi Moshe Shternbuch speaks strongly about the importance of being aware of the miracles that are happening to us constantly, and acting accordingly – which means improving our behavior, and also earnestly expressing our gratitude to Hashem for His miracles. One of the gabbaim of his shul said that when there was a gathering to say Tehillim because of the war, Rabbi Shternbuch said that they should first say the chapter of Tehillim, “Mizmor LeTodah,” which thanks Hashem for all His goodness and kindness. He explained that we shouldn’t just ask Hashem for more and more kindness and miracles without first thanking Him for all the kindness and miracles which He has already done for us. He also said that only if we are completely clear that salvation depends on Hashem alone, will Hashem save us ... and we will merit further miracles. I’d like to add something I heard several times recently regarding miracles. It’s written in the Psalms that the gentiles will praise Hashem for all His miracles that He does for Am Yisrael. The question is asked: why should the gentiles praise Hashem if the miracles are done for us? The answer is that the gentiles, who know of all the efforts they made to hurt and destroy us, efforts that we don’t even know about because they didn’t come to pass, or were unsuccessful, because – and only because – of Hashem’s loving, Divine intervention. Rabbi Lazer Brody, who lives in Ashdod, says: “... a grad missile ... sneaked pat the iron dome missile defense system and landed in Ashdod ... As usual, the newscasters broadcast ... ‘the Iron Dome intercepted three missiles over Ashdod ... but one missile fell into open spaces.’ For a listener who isn’t familiar with Israel,” says Rabbi Brody, “it sounds like the missile landed someplace similar to the Sahara Desert or the Grand Canyon. But in tiny Israel, open spaces are parking lots and vacant sandlots. It’s about time that we open our eyes and recognize Hashem’s phenomenal providence, protection and patience. Such miracles that have led to such a miniscule level of casualties and damage, obliges us to understand Hashem’s message, awaken from our spiritual slumber and to return to Hashem. We don’t want another war; if we all wake up and do teshuva, this war will be the last.” May all of us continue to share stories of Hashem’s kindnesses and miracles, may Hashem continue to have compassion on our soldiers, and on all Am Yisrael, and in the merit of our realizing that all goodness is from Hashem, may we all experience soon the complete redemption, the Geula.

Dirshu’s Bein Hazemanim Program in Eretz Yisrael Answers the Call of the Gedolim Thousands of Bnei Yeshiva Learning Daf HaYomi B’Halacha Hilchos Sukkah By Chaim Gold “Once again Dirshu is stepping into the breach at a time of great difficulty for Klal Yisrael.” That is the way Rabbi Shlomo Rozenstein, Dirshu’s Director of Public Affairs, described Dirshu’s revolutionary Bein Hazemanim Program in Eretz Yisrael. Dirshu’s Bein Hazemanim Program is immeasurably enhancing the summer bein hazemanim for thousands of bachurim throughout Eretz Yisrael while affording them a practical way to answer the call of the leading Gedolei Hador to strengthen themselves in learning during this bein hazemanim. Rabbi Rozenstein explains, “This summer in Eretz Yisrael has been one of the most difficult summers in memory. The country has been at war with an implacable foe. Soldiers were fighting on an extremely difficult battlefield and our bnei yeshiva were fighting with the koach of Yaakov, the kol Yaakov - unremitting dedication to Torah and tefillah. “The Gedolei Yisrael from across the spectrum addressed these trying times and encouraged all bnei yeshiva to learn and daven with tremendous mesiras nefesh to invoke rachmei shamayim on behalf of Am Yisrael. “The gedolim also cautioned that this bein hazemanim must be different than a regular summer bein hazemanim. Regardless of whether or not there is a viable ceasefire, the situation facing Am Yisrael both in Eretz Yisrael and in the diaspora is not simple. Although certainly, bnei yeshiva need a change of pace, nevertheless, the kol Yaakov of limud haTorah and tefillah must be heard strongly during bein hazemanim too,” the gedolim declared. “Dirshu Displayed its Unique Koach” One younger Rosh Yeshiva of a very large yeshiva gedolah in Eretz Yisrael related, “We heard the call of the ziknei hador, but on a practical level, it was difficult to enact. This is where Dirshu displayed its unique koach. Dirshu stepped in with a practical method to implement the call of the Gedolei Hador. Showing the remarkable ahavas haTorah that characterizes the organization and using its organizational talents and sparing no effort or resources, Dirshu created a program that would formulate the learning during bein hazemanim into an organized program with small incentives. This program is aimed to ensure that the kol Yaakov of thousands of bnei Yeshiva will resonate strongly throughout bein hazemanim arousing the resultant Divine Protection that comes through the pure limud haTorah of bnei yeshiva, especially during bein hazemanim - a time when it is often difficult to maintain the kol Torah on such a scope and scale.” The gedolei Roshei Yeshiva enthusiastically greeted the news that Dirshu will be running a special bein hazemanim program. Not only did they express their gratitude and admiration to Dirshu for stepping into the breach, but they have strongly encouraged their talmidim to join the program, thus continuing to participate in the defense of Eretz Yisroel during this very difficult summer.

HaRav Yissocher Frand shlita, inspiring the Siyum participants

Bochurim in Eretz Yisrael taking part in the Dirshu Bein Hazemanim program The Program Dirshu designed a learning program to appeal to a wide range of bachurim from every segment of Klal Yisrael. Providentially, Dirshu’s popular Daf HaYomi B’Halacha Program has just begun learning Hilchos Sukkah, the often complex laws of Sukkah. The hanhala of Dirshu has designed a special Daf HaYomi B’Halacha program for this bein hazemanim that will allow bnei yeshiva to come out from bein hazemanim with comprehensive knowledge of a significant part of the halachos of Sukkah. Rabbi Avigdor Bernstein, a senior member of Dirshu’s hanhala, explained, “With Sukkos just around the corner, it is truly a “davar b’ito,” a timely limud. Moreover, many bnei yeshiva do not have the time, during Sukkos, to learn the halachos of building the Sukkah and what constitutes a kosher Sukkah. During the Elul zeman when the focus is on teshuvah and the Yamim Noraim, the halachos of Sukkah are not usually learned. Once Yom Kippur comes, Sukkos is just days away. Dirshu has especially published 20,000 beautifully designed Daf HaYomi B’Halacha Sukkos booklets containing the daily limud with helpful diagrams and other important material to enhance the understanding of the halachos and to offer chizuk.” How it Works In Eretz Yisrael, there exists a yeshivas bein hazemanim system in virtually every Chareidi neighborhood. Yeshivas bein hazemanim enables bnei yeshiva to come learn together in a local beis medrash in an organized fashion. It generally consists of one seder per day with prizes such as sefarim or small stipends awarded for steady attendance. Dirshu has linked with yeshivas bein hazemanim programs across the length and breadth of Eretz Yisroel sharing not only its program, but offering a matching grant program doubling the sefarim rewards given by each of the respective yeshivas bein haze-

manim. Dirshu has also liaised with numerous yeshiva camps in Eretz Yisrael, who have also adapted the Daf HaYomi B’Halacha on Hilchos Sukkah as their summer limud. In addition, Dirshu will be giving a special stipend to any talmid who takes the test on the entire program spanning from Siman 625-630. “In truth,” says Rabbi Motti Kroizer, a senior member of Dirshu’s hanhala, “the prizes and stipends are not what have made the program so popular with the thousands of participants. The fact that Dirshu understands the learning needs of bnei yeshiva and invests time and effort to create a structured program is the real reason for the program’s phenomenal success. The prizes and stipends are merely sweeteners gifted to bnei yeshiva who are already learning, that show how much Dirshu values the avodas hakodesh of our most precious commodity, the bnei yeshiva!” “Daf HaYomi B’Halacha is the perfect limud for a summer bein hazemanim,” says Rabbi Avigdor Bernstein. “It is an opportunity to learn the complex halachos of Sukkah in a comprehensive fashion with the Mishna Berurah. Dirshu’s new edition, with its voluminous Biurim and Musafim that brings so much context and depth as well as piskei halacha of all the leading gedolim past and present who lived after the Mishna Berurah was published, offers the talmidim a wide-ranging knowledge and an extremely engaging seder. “I recently toured the country visiting a wide array of Dirshu Yeshivas Bein Hazemanim locales and watched bachurim learn and debate the halachos of Sukkah. It was an eye-opening experience! I developed an even greater understanding of why the Gedolei Yisrael so trust Dirshu and appreciate its role in facilitating limud haTorah on an unimaginable scope and scale. The resultant rachamei shamayim invoked on behalf of Klal Yisrael is certainly also on an unimaginable scope and scale!”

Rabbis Thrive In Chaplaincy Program By Rabbi Yaakov Klass The CCRC, the Central Committee of Rabbinic Chaplains, was organized to assist those who wish to pursue their calling as Orthodox Jewish chaplains. The committee organizes classes in CPE (clinical pastoral education), enabling Orthodox rabbis to become certified chaplains and expand their career opportunities in the chaplaincy field. A CPE class at Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center in Brooklyn was tailor-made for Orthodox participants. Rabbi Michoel Chazan, director of chaplaincy services at Kingsbrook for the past 13 years, and one of the founders of CCRC, is the principal organizer of these CPE classes. The next class will take place in September. (For more information, call Rabbi Michoel Chazan at 718-604-5530.) The following group of rabbis, after taking a minimum

&

By Rabbi Yaakov Klass van ic ouka ‘r b“zk

Prayer And Its Origins (Part III)

Question: The Gemara in Berachot states that the sages authored our prayers. Does that mean we didn’t pray beforehand? Menachem (Via E-mail) Summary of our response up to this point: The Gemara (Ta’anit 2a) explains that “to love the L-rd your G-d and to serve Him with all your heart” (Deuteronomy 11:13) refers to a type of service that is of the heart, i.e., prayer. The Patriarchs and their progeny before the revelation at Mount Sinai were not bound by the Torah, yet our sages teach us that they nonetheless observed the mitzvot, including the mitzvah of prayer. They state that the Patriarchs established the three daily prayers (Berachot 26b). Abraham established Shacharit, Isaac instituted Minchah, and Jacob introduced Ma’ariv. They did not establish the formal text of these prayers. Rather, they set the times of day for prayer. In his Sefer HaMitzvot, the Rambam records prayer as the fifth mitzvah in his listing of the positive precepts. The Chafetz Chayyim lists it as the seventh mitzvah in his Sefer HaMitzvot Hakatzar which includes only those precepts that are possible to observe outside the Land of Israel now that we are bereft of the Temple, suggesting that prayer serves as a replacement for the Temple service. Last week, we quoted the Rambam’s discussion of prayer in his Mishneh Torah (Hilchot Tefillah 1). He writes that we are required to pray daily, praising G-d and imploring him for all our personal needs, followed by words of gratitude for all He has given us. Since it is a positive precept that is not dependent upon time, women and slaves are required to pray. Originally, there was no set wording or order to the prayers. After the Jews were exiled and interspersed among the nations, however, they no longer all spoke the same language, and many were unable to articulate proper prayers. Hence, the Rambam writes, Ezra the Scribe and his beit din established a set text as well as fixed times for prayer. They organized the 18 benedictions of the Amidah (Megillah 17b-18a) and set two daily prayers to correspond to the two daily offerings in the Holy Temple. They also established a third prayer, Mussaf, for those days on which an additional sacrifice would have been offered in the Temple. Finally, they also established an optional evening prayer, called Arbit or Ma’ariv, which all of Israel ultimately accepted upon themselves as an obligatory prayer. The Rambam also discusses the role of the sheliach tzibbur, which was established for those who could not recite the prayers themselves. The fact that a distinction was made between those who knew how to pray and those who did not is proof that some had memorized a text while others had not mastered it. ***** When one refers to tefillah – more specifically, the prayers one is duty-bound to say three times daily – one is really referring to Shemoneh Esreh, the 18 benedictions that constitute the Amidah, instituted by Ezra and his beit din. The Gemara (Megillah 17b-18a) explains the scriptural sources for each of the 18 benedictions and the reason for Rabbi Yaakov Klass, rav of Congregation K’hal Bnei Matisyahu in Flatbush, Brooklyn, is Torah Editor of The Jewish Press. He can be contacted at yklass@jewishpress.com.

RABBI BI DOVID GOLDWASSER GOLDW

Preoccupied “You shall gather together all its booty to the midst of its open square, and you shall completely burn the city and all its booty in fire, and it shall be an eternal heap and it shall not be rebuilt” – Devarim 13:17. When a city becomes so spiritually corrupt that the majority of its inhabitants are idol worshippers, the Torah instructs us to destroy the entire city without keeping any of its spoils. The Chofetz Chaim observes that if an entire city succumbs to idol worship it signifies that it was built by people who were solely in pursuit of materialism and profit, with no interest in raising their spiritual levels. Thus, they were very content to rid themselves of any vestiges of G-dliness and were vulnerable to the attraction of idolatry. Consequently, that which brought about their downfall – their entire wealth – must be completely destroyed. Our sages present a similar concept in the Talmud (Shabbos): that a city whose residential roofs are taller than the beis medrash will ultimately be destroyed. It is explained that this practice suggests the residents value their homes and their material wealth more than spiritual pursuits, represented by the beis medrash. As a result they become involved in evil ways and the city becomes a hub of tumah and sin. Unquestionably, silver and gold have their value, but we must be aware of the danger of becoming overly obsessed with wealth. Its potential to lead to idol worship obviously speaks of its influence in preventing us from seeking to fulfill our mission in this world. The Chovos HaLevavos tells us that the ability of human beings to engage in business and commerce so that we can have what we need is one of the great kindnesses Hashem has given us. Yet silver and gold, i.e. wealth, can only buy so much; other possessions cannot be acquired even with limitless amounts of wealth. The Shaar Bechinah states that there are few people who have a lot of money; most have only a little. In fact, if everyone was wealthy it would be difficult to attain our daily needs. Once everyone has money, its value diminishes. The shoemaker or the baker would have no motivation or need to get up in the middle of the night to toil and sweat. Silver and gold are a means of survival, but they have assumed an imaginary value. In the past, people were content with what they had; the pursuit for riches was not as fervent. There was less jealousy and covetousness. The difference between necessities and luxuries was clearly defined. Today, the luxuries have become necessities. In our age we see that overindulgence has become an issue even in the secular world. There is talk of “consumerism” and “consumption.” The term “shopaholic” is now official and it affects millions of people around the world. It is an outgrowth of the skewed percepthe order in which they are recited. A nineteenth benediction – “V’lamalshinim” – was added later by Rabban Gamaliel (II) Ha’Nasi due to slanderers and informers who sought to cause great harm to the Jewish people. As a result, Shemoneh Esreh actually includes 19 benedictions.

tion that material possessions and their universal pursuit have in our lives. We recite in the Hadran upon the completion of a tractate of Talmud, “… We run and they run. We run to life of the world-to-come and they run to the well of destruction.” The expression “well of destruction” implies that whatever one’s initial pursuits in the realm of materialism, it will inevitably terminate in destruction. The Michtav M’Eliyahu explains that real attachment is only derived relative to properties of the soul. One cannot truly bond with anything extraneous of this. Shlomo HaMelech adjures us (Mishlei 23:4), “Do not weary yourself to become rich.” Dovid HaMelech, likewise, advises us not to exert our energy and time in accumulating wealth (Tehillim 128:2), “When you eat the labor of your hands you are praiseworthy and it is well with you.” Yaakov Avinu asked Hashem only (Bereishis 28:20), “Give me bread to eat and clothes to wear”; he was satisfied with having his minimal needs met. As we approach the Shemittah year, it is important to take note of R’ Yonasan Eibeschutz’s observation that it is a time of Hashem’s great ratzon (good will). It is an opportunity for the individual to demonstrate his disregard for the idols of silver and gold, i.e. his material wealth. Shemittah is a manifestation of the importance of not becoming too involved in business and the pursuit of material wealth. The observance of Shemittah raises our level of spirituality. We return to the basics of true emunah and bitachon in Hashem, heightening our awareness that everything we have, including our livelihood and sustenance, comes directly from Hashem. Rabbi Binyamin Mendelsohn (1904-1979) was the famed Rav of Komemiyus who assumed the leadership in campaigns for observance of Shemittah in Eretz Yisrael in 1952, guided by the Chazon Ish. He was well known for his mesiras nefesh and his great desire to learn Torah at all times. When he was a young boy a new device was introduced to the world with great excitement. People eagerly anticipated its arrival on the market, and talked about it for weeks. The radio had come of age, and everyone wanted to see this instrument that could transmit voices from far away. When the first radio arrived in the neighborhood, everyone ran to see it. That is, everyone except for one individual – Binyamin Mendelsohn. His friends were astounded when he didn’t join them and asked him why he had not come. “Aren’t you interested?” they asked him. Binyamin enthusiastically answered, “I am definitely very interested. But there is something else I find equally fascinating and incredible, and it is difficult for me to turn away my attention from it.” His friends thought that he had perhaps discovered another new invention of which they were not aware. “Tell us about it,” they begged Binyamin. “Actually,” said Binyamin, “I am involved in a very complex matter in the Talmud which is compelling. It says that the Mishnah does not follow Ben Nannes. There are many issues here. Why not? What is the basis of the logic in the dispute with Ben Nannes? What is the argument of the sages? Why is he called Ben Nannes and not Rav Ben Nannes? There is much to explore and research, and I have become deeply absorbed in the matter. I, therefore, have no time for this new innovation,” concluded the future gadol. That the Amidah is the central focus of every prayer session is evident from the following halachot cited by the Mechaber (Orach Chayim 109:1): “One who enters a synagogue and finds that

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

Burnt Toast A premature engagement can cause a new kallah to feel doubt and anxiety, even when she’s engaged to the right person. When the opposite happens and a couple dates too long without moving forward to engagement, the parties can suffer even more. Often, their relationship will end, even when the man and woman seem right for each other. Jared and Annie met at the engagement party of their roommates, and hit it off right away. They agreed on politics, liked the same films, and were both reading the same novel. Over the next couple of weeks, Jared and Annie kept bumping into each other at different places – the supermarket, a bris, and a bicycle shop. It turned out they were both avid bike riders. Jared joked that they’d probably meet next time in the bike lane and invited her to go biking the following Sunday. That was their first date. Jared and Annie soon fell into a pattern of seeing each other a couple of times a week – a movie, dinner, biking, bowling, studying together. They were both in graduate school and felt comfortable with the role they played in each other’s lives. Annie graduated after they’d been a “couple” for more than 14 months, and when Jared took her out to celebrate they spoke about their plans for the summer. Annie remarked, “It’s great to plan a vacation, and I want to take one before I start work. But I thought that since I’m finished with school, and you have one year left to go, we might talk about when we want to move things forward.” Jared innocently asked, “What things?”

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. They are co-directors of Sasson V’Simcha – The Center for Jewish Marriage, Inc. To invite the authors to present a program for singles, parents, or mentors in your community this fall, contact them at info@ jewishdatingandmarriage.com.

“What do you mean ‘what things’? You and me. We’ve been going out for more than a year.” “So?” “So, I thought we’re moving in a certain direction.” “You mean, like, marriage? Look, Annie, I think we’re great together, but I don’t want to think about marriage for at least another couple of years. I want to finish school and start paying off my loans. Plus, I can’t even see myself being married at 25. I thought we’d keep dating and see what happens in a couple of years.” Annie had no words to respond. She couldn’t wait for the date to end. Did this mean Jared would be ready to get engaged in two years? Did she want to wait that long? Would she get frustrated with the wait and would that negatively impact their relationship? And what if Jared wasn’t ready in two years? What would she do then? Why hadn’t she and Jared spoken about their expectations for the relationship earlier? She felt ready to get married to Jared. Did she want to keep dating him if he couldn’t commit to her now? Would Annie and Jared’s relationship survive if they agree to keep dating and talk about engagement in couple of years? Or, is going to end up like what happens when someone leaves bread in the toaster for too long – burnt toast that can’t be salvaged? Jenny and Daniel grappled with the same problem. Throughout the ten months that they’d been dating, Jenny hadn’t told Daniel that that something bothered her. Try as she might, she couldn’t get used to how Daniel sometimes acted when he got angry. He often bottled up his frustrations, and when they reached a crescendo he’d explode, letting forth a stream of angry words and insults. It would take him a couple of hours to calm down and get back to himself. Jenny didn’t feel comfortable when this happened. She also didn’t like how Daniel reacted when they started to argue. If their disagreement heated up, Daniel would suddenly become silent, turn red, and walk out. He’d call her up a few hours later, after he calmed down, and act as if nothing had happened. When Annie wanted to discuss the issue they’d disagreed about, Daniel refused and said, “Let’s just move on.” Annie felt as if nothing ever got resolved. Annie liked everything about Daniel except for how he handled being upset, and kept suggesting that he talk to someone about how to handle his anger better. She also expected that Daniel would eventually realize that they should try to resolve issues they disagreed about once he was calm, but even though she kept asking him to try this, it never happened. Like many other people who stay in a relationship that has

A Change Of Heart As told to Penina Pinchasi My twin daughters Dina and Tirza are so different that comparing them was rarely an option. In looks and nature, they are almost opposites and people have difficulty believing they are even sisters, let alone twins. They opted to go to different seminars (as Beis Yaakov high schools in Israel are called) and although they were more or less the same academically, Tirza decided to stay on after 12th grade and study computer programming, while Dina couldn’t leave school fast enough. Her choice of school had been a mistake she had long ago decided, but changing to another school wasn’t a viable option. She just wanted to leave school at the end of 12th grade.

good possibilities, Jenny kept dating Daniel long after it should have been clear to her that he was not able to deal with his anger and his reluctance to try to resolve disagreements. Jenny began to resent Daniel’s inability to see that his unhealthy approach to conflict was a real problem for her. She started to pull back from him emotionally, but Daniel thought she was doing this because he hadn’t yet proposed. He was shocked when he spoke about getting engaged and Jenny, who finally realized that she’d been spinning her wheels for too long and would never get out of the quicksand she was stuck in, broke up with him.

damaged by corrosion. In addition to trapping pollen, bacteria, dust and exhaust gases, the cabin air filter prevents leaves, bugs and other debris from entering the HVAC system. Cabin air filters should not be cleaned and reinstalled. Instead, they should be replaced every 12,000 to 15,000 miles or per the owner’s manual. Most filters are accessible through an access panel in the HVAC housing, which may be under the hood or in the interior of the car. An automotive service technician can help locate the cabin filter and replace it according to the vehicle’s owner manual. Some filters require basic hand tools to remove and install the replacement filter while others just require your hands. To learn more about cabin air filters, view the Car Care Council’s car care minute video or the car care guide at www.carcare.org. There you can also order a free printed copy of the guide. (NAPSI)

Auto Teller Continued from p.24 A humble person will contemplate, “What gives me the right to assume that my time is more valuable than his?” In more practical terms, a humble person (not only a decent person) will not double- or triple-park. The thought of causing others inconvenience is anathema to him or her. Such an individual will not cut a line – not at a buffet, nor on the entrance ramp to the Brooklyn Bridge – for they do not believe that their time is more important than the time of others. There are many “likewise” categories regarding humble people, which is why it is not coincidental that they are appealing individuals. If we think about those who annoy us, the humble ones never make it to the list. Let us analyze some of these “becauses.” A humble person bears no ill will toward those who disagree with her or him. Such an individual is aware that people have the right to understand the world differently, and that their perceptions might have something to teach her or him. Another fair generalization about humble people is that they do not see themselves as superior to others – or more deserving. Accordingly, they are less apt to suffer from a sense of entitlement. Instead, they are grateful for all that they are blessed with. Nothing is more effective to diminish envy than gratitude. There are a host of compelling reasons and obligations to

lead a humble life as this series of columns has, and shall be, exploring. But the reduction of envy – which is such a major cause of anxiety and dissatisfaction – should be adequate enough. Envy is triggered when we perceive that we lack what others have and to which we feel entitled. This is foreign psychological territory for a humble person. The practical application of how to implement this characteristic of the humble, as Rabbi Joseph Telushkin has pointed out, is to identify an area regarding each person we know, in which he or she is our superior. As it says in Chovos Halevavos, a great sage was asked, “How did you come to be accepted as the undisputed leader of your generation?” The scholar responded, “I never met a person in whom I did not find at least one quality superior to me.” Once we have identified the other person’s superior trait, let this become our immediate association with that individual. Whenever we hear that person’s name or see him or her, this is what should flash in our mind. Generally, we do the exact opposite. Nature is that the first association we usually have with others is their faults. For example, if we see someone arrive very late to davening, or hear someone’s cell phone go off during a lecture, these uncomplimentary images become our associations. There is no shortage of reasons why this is inappropriate, but as we have attempted to explain, a humble person will never be plagued by this. (To be continued) Chodesh Tov – have a pleasant month!

Discretion ‘Vendors Of Fruits And Clothing… May Sell In Private’ (Mo’ed Katan 13b) The Mishnah states that professional animal trappers may trap a large number of animals on Chol HaMo’ed to sell for the festival. However, while a non-professional may perform labor on Chol HaMo’ed This week’s Daf Yomi Highlights is based upon Al Hadaf, published by Cong. Al Hadaf, 17N Rigaud Rd., Spring Valley, NY 10977-2533. Al Hadaf published semi-monthly, is available by subscription: U.S. – $40 per year; Canada – $54 per year; overseas – $65 per year. For dedication information, contact Rabbi Zev Dickstein, editor, at 845-356-9114 or visit Alhadafyomi.org.

Klass Continued from p.33 the congregation is praying the Amidah should act as follows: If he is able to start his Amidah and conclude before the chazzan reaches Kedushah or Kaddish [at the Amidah’s conclusion], he may pray. If [he can’t conclude in time], he should not start his Amidah.” The Mechaber continues, “And should he enter [a

in public, a professional must perform his work out of public view. The Magen Avraham (Orach Chayim 533:9) explains that he must do so because the large quantities with which he is dealing may cause some people to think he is conducting business for after the festival. Out Of Public View The Mishnah states a similar halacha with regards to a merchant selling his wares on Chol HaMo’ed. Even though he may sell items on Chol HaMo’ed that are needed for Yom Tov, he must conduct his business in a discreet manner, e.g., at a remote location and out of public view. The Gemara also states that if a businessman’s storefront faces the street, he may not leave the door open in the usual manner because that would attract too much attention (and there is a concern that observers will think he is selling items for post-festival use). Perishables The Gemara qualifies this halacha: A merchant selling perishable food (such as certain vegetables or fish) may sell his wares in public. Since the food cannot last until after the festival, it is obvious to an

synagogue] after Kedushah, if it is possible for him to begin his Amidah and conclude before the chazzan reaches Modim, he should say it. If it is not possible, he should not say it. The same rule applies if he is [not able to conclude before the chazzan reaches Modim but is] able to reach Modim [in his own silent Amidah], or one of the other benedictions for which one bows, at the same time that the chazzan reaches Modim. In that case, he should commence with his prayer….” The Mechaber proceeds to relate numerous other

THIS WEEK’S LUACH (continued from p.7) This Shabbos is Shabbos Mevorchim; the molad of Elul is on Monday evening, 34 minutes 14 chalakim (a chelek is 1/18 of a minute) past 7:00 p.m. NYC E.D.T. Rosh Chodesh is two days, Tuesday and Wednesday. Rosh Chodesh Elul: Monday night Maariv we add Ya’aleh VeYavo. At Maariv only, one does not repeat the Amida if he forgot to say Ya’aleh VeYavo (Shulchan Aruch, Orach Chayyim 422:1, based on Berachos 30b, which explains that this is due to the fact that we do not sanctify the month at night). Following the Shemoneh Esreh, the chazzan recites Kaddish Tiskabbel followed by Aleinu, Kaddish Yasom. Tues. morning: Shacharis with inclusion of Ya’aleh VeYavo in the Shemoneh Esreh, half Hallel, Kaddish Tiskabbel. We take out one Sefer Torah. We read in Parashas Pinchas (Bamidbar 28:1-15), we call four Aliyos (Kohen, Levi, Yisrael, Yisrael), the Baal Keria recites half Kaddish. We return the Torah to the Aron, and continue with Ashrei, U’va LeTziyyon – we delete Lamenatze’ach. The chazzan recites half Kaddish; all then remove their tefillin. (Other minhagim are to remove the tefillin before the half Kaddish recital – see Mishna Berura, Orach Chayyim 25:59.) Musaf of Rosh Chodesh, followed by Reader’s repetition and Kaddish Tiskabbel, Aleinu, Shir Shel Yom, Borchi Naf-

shi and their respective Kaddish recitals (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: 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. Tuesday eve. and Wednesday, the 2nd day of Rosh Chodesh, the order of the day is the same as yesterday. We start to sound the shofar from the second day of Rosh Chodesh at the conclusion of Musaf, and at the conclusion of the Shacharit Tefilla on subsequent days for the entire month of Elul. We then say LeDavid Hashem Ori (Psalms 27), morning and evening, until Shemini Atzeres. We start reciting that psalm only after Shacharis but not after Ma’ariv the night before. The Sephardic and Oriental communities also start the recital of Selichos. (Minhag Ashkenaz is to start from the immediate Saturday night before Rosh Hashana. (This year on September 21.) Kiddush Levana at first opportunity (we usually wait until Motza’ei Shabbos). The following chapters of Tehillim are being recited by many congregations and Yeshivos for our brothers and sisters in Eretz Yisrael: Chapter 83, 130, 142. – Y.K.

observer that it is being sold for festival consumption and there is no room for suspicion or confusion. Based on this logic, the Rema (Orach Chayim 533:4-5), citing the Mordechai, rules that (in contrast to trappers of animals) a fisherman is permitted to fish in public on Chol HaMo’ed since people will understand that he plans to sell the fish for festival consumption. The Magen Avraham (loc. cit. s.k. 10) disagrees, and maintains that a fisherman is forbidden to catch fish in public – even though it is apparent that he intends to sell the fish for the festival consumption. Modern Refrigeration In Zichron Shlomo (Hilchos Chol HaMo’ed Ch. 5, Note 26) it is asserted that professional fishing in public is forbidden in contemporary times even according to Rema. Since we now have the means of preserving fish (by freezing and canning), it is no longer evident that fish caught on Chol HaMo’ed will be consumed on the festival. (Selling fish, baked goods, vegetables and other perishables in public, however, is still permitted today because these items, when sold at retail, are usually purchased for immediate use, not to freeze or can.)

situations relating to latecomers to shul. The Mishnah Berurah (Orach Chayim 109:8) explains the Mechaber’s statement regarding reaching a benediction at which one bows simultaneously with the chazzan reaching Modim as follows: “Even though [the latecomer] is unable to recite Modim D’Rabbanan together with the congregation, this is not a matter of concern; he is [seen] bowing with them and thus it is permissible l’chatchilah….” From these halachot we see that the Amidah is the main component of tefillah. Nevertheless, when one joins in a prayer session, one surely finds that there is far more to our daily tefillah service than the Amidah alone. (To be continued)

Week In Review

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

ISRAEL/MIDEAST NEWS IDF DEMOLISHES HOMES OF KIDNAP/MURDER TERRORISTS

The homes of two of the men said to have planned and carried out the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teens in June were demolished, while a third was sealed off. The homes of Hussam Kawasme, who was arrested last month and admitted to planning the attack, and Amer Abu Aysha, accused of carrying out the kidnapping and murder, were demolished late Sunday night, the Israel Defense Forces said in a statement. The Hebron home of Marwan Kawasme, Hussam’s brother, was sealed off and is set to be demolished. Marwan Kawasme had been freed in the Gilad Shalit prisoner exchange. Hussam Kawasme of Hebron was apprehended last month while attempting to flee to Jordan under a false identity with the help of his family. He reportedly admitted to serving as the leader of the cell that perpetrated the murders of Gilad Shaar, Naftali Frankel and Eyal Yifrach. He said that funding for the attack, which he used to buy weapons, came from Hamas in Gaza. The implementation of the demolition order, which was issued by the IDF in mid-June, was carried out following three appeals to Israel’s High Court of Justice. The court affirmed the IDF position regarding the intention to demolish the houses.

STATE COMPTROLLER TO INVESTIGATE GAZA CONFLICT The state comptroller will investigate Israel’s military conduct and decisions made during the recent conflict with Hamas in Gaza. The announcement came in the wake of allegations of Israel Defense Forces war crimes during the monthlong conflict in which more than 1,900 Palestinians were killed, according to sources quoting the Gaza Health Ministry. Palestinian human rights organizations claim more than 80 percent of those killed were civilians, while Israel says the number is much lower. “In light of claims that Israel allegedly violated the rules of international law and is not checking IDF actions as required by international law, State Comptroller Judge (Ret.) Yosef Shapira has decided to launch an inquiry into the decision-making processes on the military and political level during Operation Protective Edge, and the inspection and investigation mechanisms of the IDF and the government,” the comptroller’s statement said. Earlier last week the United Nations selected Canadian law professor William Schabas to head an international probe into the conflict.

YAZIDI TODDLER UNDERGOES HEART SURGERY IN ISRAEL A child from the persecuted Yazidi ethnic group of northern Iraq received heart surgery in Israel. The 17-month-old, Wisam, and his father arrived in Israel in June in advance of the surgery. Wisam was born with congenital heart disease. Wisam’s family, including his mother and two newborn twins, was among the 200,000 Yazidi families besieged by ISIS, the militant Islamist group, on Mount Sinjar in Iraq. Dr. Lior Sasson performed the seven-hour surgery at Wolfson Medical Center in Holon, outside of Tel Aviv.

SAJBD, is taking legal steps against Tony Ehrenreich, provincial secretary of trade union umbrella body COSATU, after he accused it on Facebook of complicity in murder in Gaza. “The time has come to say very clearly that if a woman or child is killed in Gaza, then the Jewish board of deputies, who are complicit, will feel the wrath of the People of SA with the age old biblical teaching of an eye for an eye,” he wrote. “The time has come for the conflict to be waged everywhere the Zionist supporters fund and condone the war killing machine of Israel.” The board said it was instituting criminal and civil charges against Ehrenreich for alleged hate speech and incitement to violence against the community’s representative body. Ehrenreich said that he stood by his statement, that he was not anti-Semitic, and was not calling for violence against Jews. His focus was on the SAJBD for what he described as condoning violence against Palestinians.

Congregants at a synagogue in the Hamptons pledged more than $1 million at a fundraiser for Israel. The money raised at the gathering at The Hampton Synagogue in Westhampton Beach will go to the UJA-Federation of New York’s Israel Emergency Fund, which assists organizations that provide medical treatment and economic support for Israelis in the wake of conflict. “I am humbled and overwhelmed with gratitude and pride over the show of support by our congregation, that realizes the depths of the trauma – of the pain and suffering of Israelis – and reached deep to help however they could during this tragic and terrible crisis,” the synagogue’s rabbi, Marc Schneier, said in a news release.

DUTCH MINISTER SUSPENDS OFFICIAL WHO SAID ZIONISTS CREATED ISIS

LAUREN BACALL, FILM LEGEND AND RELATIVE OF SHIMON PERES, DIES

A Dutch government employee who said the ISIS terrorist group was a Zionist conspiracy was suspended pending further disciplinary steps. Dutch Justice Minister Ivo Opstelten announced the decision about Yasmina Haifi, a former project manager for the ministry’s Cyber Security Center, after Haifi wrote on Twitter: “ISIS has nothing to do with Islam. It’s part of a plan by Zionists who are deliberately trying to blacken Islam’s name.” She later removed the statement, citing work-related “sensitivity.” Commenting on Haifi’s statement, Vice Premier Lodewijk Asscher said: “When I heard it, it made me sick to my stomach.” Asscher is a member of Dutch Labor, or PvdA, which is also Haifi’s party. “[Haifi] will not be returning to this function, not ever,” said Opstelten, who described himself as “shocked” by the contents of her message. Her statement, he also said, was “incompatible with her responsibilities” and “therefore she was removed. She is not the right person for this job.”

Film legend Lauren Bacall, the daughter of Jewish immigrants from Poland and Romania, died in New York last week at age 89. Born Betty Joan Perske in Brooklyn, Bacall was related to former Israeli president Shimon Peres (nee Szymon Perski), although they did not meet until they were both famous adults. After her parents’ divorce, when she was 6, she took the second half of her mother’s maiden name, Bacal, later adding an “l.” Her big break was a role, at age 19, in the film “To Have and Have Not,” where she played opposite Humphrey Bogart. The two married in 1945. Bacall went on to perform in more than 40 films. She also performed on stage, winning Tony Awards for her starring roles in the musicals “Applause” and “Woman of the Year.” Her 1980 autobiography, Lauren Bacall: By Myself, won a National Book Award.

WARSAW TO RESTORE 1,000 JEWISH TOMBSTONES USED FOR CONSTRUCTION

Leonard Fein, a veteran Jewish activist and writer, died last week at 80. Fein’s death was announced by the Forward newspaper, where he was a longtime columnist. A prominent voice of Jewish liberalism and leftwing Zionism, Fein was the author of numerous books on Jewish issues and politics. Fein was the founder of Mazon: A Jewish Response to Hunger as well as the National Jewish Coalition for Literacy; he was also a founder and board member of Americans for Peace Now, the American affiliate of Israel’s Peace Now movement. In 1975, he co-founded Moment magazine with Elie Wiesel. Fein was a former professor of political science and social policy at Brandeis University, where he also taught Jewish studies.

The city of Warsaw has agreed to return and preserve 1,000 Jewish headstones that were used to construct a recreational facility inside one of the city’s parks. The headstones, which are currently part of a pergola and stairs at a park in Warsaw’s Praga district, will be returned in the coming months to the Brudo Jewish Cemetery in Warsaw, according to a statement by From the Depths, the international commemoration nonprofit that led talks on the subject with city officials. The city allocated a budget of $180,000 for the project, according to Jonny Daniels, From the Depths’ U.K.born, Israel-based founder. The pergola at Praga district is one of countless sites scattered across Poland in which Jewish tombstones were used as construction material, according to Daniels, whose group earlier this year brought dozens of Israeli lawmakers to a meeting with counterparts from Poland and other countries, and a visit to the Auschwitz death camp on the 69th anniversary of its liberation. “In the 1950s, the communists were in full swing of building structures and monuments out of matzevas, which they often broke into pieces,” Daniels said, using the Hebrew word for a Jewish tombstone. An effort to locate headstones will begin this month with help from volunteers from the University of Warsaw.

Whenever I use Yiddish words or expressions in this column, I’m sure to hear from readers who complain that the translations aren’t a hundred percent accurate. Please understand that this is what we learned – right or wrong. This was how we interpreted the words we heard Mama and Papa say. In a sense, some of our relatives spoke Yinglish, a combination of Yiddish and English. For example, the words ah bissel mean “a little.� People would say “Give me ah bissel soup.� Actually, it was said with Yiddish inflections as follows: “Gib mir ah bissel zoop.� If you heard, “ah bisseleh zoop,� that would mean “very little soup.� You have to master the ch sound for the next one. How often have you heard “ah broch�? That is similar to “a catastrophe.� It is usually said with an “oy� as in “Oy, ah broch!� When we were kids and did something wrong, Mama would say “Oy ah broch hut mir getrofen!� This happened whenever my little brother Berel would come home with his report card. All Berel’s marks were usually below water – you know, below “C� level. I’ll never forget how Mama said “Ah broch tsu mir� and clapped her hands to her face when she saw my sister wearing lipstick for the first time. This really seemed like a catastrophe. Who knew where it would lead? Here’s one that was used quite often around our house. “Ah deighe hob ich,� which means, “I couldn’t care less� or “why should I worry?� Mama would use that combination when my sisters would gang up on her and say, “Ma, we have to go to the movies this week – it’s a Bing Crosby picture!� Mama would say, “Ah deighe hob ich?� She couldn’t have cared less. Here’s one I well remember: “Ah farshlepter krenk.� It literally means a chronic ailment, but it wasn’t only used for that. For example, when we would have to take the bus to the Catskill Mountains in the summer on the old Route 17, that was “Ah farshlepter krenk.� It could be interpreted as a pain in the neck or a drawn-out illness. When my sisters would come home from school with an A in work and an A in conduct on a report card, Mama would kiss their foreheads lovingly and say, “Ah gezunt oif dein keppeleh,� which literally meant “Good health on your head.� How about this one: “Ah glick hut mir getrufen.� That was actually used as a sarcastic remark that meant, “Oh, whoopee, I’m thrilled to pieces.� But since it was sarcastic, it could be interpreted as “forget about it!�

The following was probably the first Yiddish term we learned: “Ah klog tzu mir.â€? That meant, in its simplest interpretation, “Oh, my goodness gracious!â€? “Ah klog tzu meine sonim,â€? which literally meant “ a curse on my enemies,â€? was used when a neighbor would come in to tell Mama the landlord was going to give everybody a 10 percent increase in the rent. “Ah leben oif dirâ€? was a blessing. It meant, “You should live and be well and have some more experiences like this one.â€? Mama usually cooed that combinations of words to my little brother Berel whenever he passed an arithmetic test – which was quite seldom. Here’s one phrase Mama and Papa practically wore out: “Ah nechtiger tog.â€? That meant literally: “A night-like day.â€? It was a sarcastic expression used to mean something absurd, or “That’s ridiculous!â€? How about the word “halevaiâ€?? It means “It should only be.â€? When you hear of someone having good luck, like winning a raffle for a trip to Israel, you might say, “Halevai it should happen to me.â€? “An alter bocherâ€? is a single fellow, a bachelor. When a young girl falls in love with an older man they might say, “Zee gait mit an alteh bocher.â€? Here’s one: “An oomglick hut mir getrofen!â€? Mama would say it every time Berel came home with a note from his teacher asking Mama to make a personal appearance at his school. It means “A catastrophe has befallen me!â€? Here’s one we all should use at least once a day: “Azoy!â€? That means “Really, you don’t say! You mean it?â€? There are so many different interpretations for one word or combination of words in Yiddish, it’s difficult to break it down into simple classical sentences. For example, take the word “behaimeh,â€? meaning an animal. But it means more. For example, if you call someone “ah behaimehâ€? it means he is an uncouth, foolish person. Here’s another great one: “billig.â€? That means, cheap, inexpensive. I’m sure you’ve heard the expression “billig vi borscht – cheap as borscht.â€? Here’s one you might use if someone comes into your place of business and says, “Someone just hit a car outside. Do you own a red sedan?â€? If you don’t own the red sedan you’d say, “Chas Vecholilehâ€? which means “Heaven forbid!â€? When you want to describe the tumult that happens when all the relatives’ kids get together for the Seder, you might say “ah chamalyeh!â€? which means “the ultimate racket.â€? It’s another way of saying bang, boom, punch, slam‌etc.

to protect ourselves from these painful contractions?” Our sages have an answer. It is clearly written without room for misunderstanding: “Let he who wishes to be spared the birth pangs of Messiah occupy himself with Torah and gemilas chasadim [acts of loving kindness] and let him be scrupulous about Seudah Shlishis [the third Sabbath meal].” The first two commandments – Torah and gemilas chassadim – are self-explanatory. One who is committed to Torah and mitzvos and to reaching out with loving kindness must become a better, more spiritual person. Eating a third Shabbos meal, however, is not as readily comprehensible. We are enjoined to have three Shabbos meals (seudos) – Shabbos eve (Friday night), Shabbos noon (following prayer in the synagogue), and late in the afternoon as the Sabbath Queen prepares to depart. Through these three meals we honor the three Patriarchs, the three sections of our Scriptures (Torah, Prophets, and Writings), and the three Sabbath meals of manna G-d provided for us during our sojourn in the wilderness (Exodus 16:25). The final Shabbos seudah is called Shalosh Seudos, which translated literally means “Three Meals” rather than Seudah Shlishis – the third meal. Our sages explain the reason for this is that all three Shabbos seudos are embodied in this one. The third meal presents a most auspicious time for prayer. To this day, when I close my eyes I can hear the sweet voices of my revered father and my beloved husband of blessed memory leading their congregants in singing Psalm 23, the psalm that is traditionally chanted at the Shalosh Seudos: “The L-rd is my Shepherd, I shall not want…” The task of the shepherd is a lowly and lonely one. Day in and day out he is destined to wander from place to place seeking pasture for his flock, and yet David did not hesitate to refer to G-d as a shepherd, for he perceived G-d’s love as so total, so encompassing, that when it comes to caring for His children nothing is beneath Him. What a magnificent and fortifying thought – no matter where life takes us, even if we have to walk in the treacherous valleys overshadowed by death, we need not fear, for G-d our Shepherd will always be there to lead us to greener pastures even if at first we do not recognize the pasture He is leading us to is indeed greener. Still, it is difficult to comprehend how the mere acts of eating of a third meal, singing Psalm 23, and discussing words of Torah can have such awesome power that they can actually protect us from the suffering that will accompany the birth pangs. (To be continued)

Continued from p.21 have to contend with a fifth source of tribulation that will come from Yishmael (the Arab nations), who will inflict terrible suffering on the world and on our people. We are the generation destined to witness the fulfillment of the prophecy given to Hagar (Genesis 16:11-13): “Behold, you will conceive and give birth to a son, and you shall call him Ishmael…and his hand shall be against everyone and everyone’s hand against him, and over all his brethren shall he dwell…” There is yet another amazing prophecy in the Yalkut Shemoni, a midrashic compilation that eerily foretells the events of today. Rabbi Yitzchok said, “The year in which Melech HaMashiach will be revealed, all the nations of the world will be provoking each other. The king of Persia [Iran] will provoke the king of Arabia [Saudi Arabia]. The king of Arabia will go to the king of Edom [the Western nations; i.e. the president of the United States] to take counsel, and the king of Persia will threaten to destroy the world. “The nations of the world will be outraged…. Israel too will be…in a state of panic and ask, ‘Where do we go?’ “But say unto them, ‘My children, do not fear. The time of your redemption has come…’ And this last redemption shall be different from the first that was followed by further bondage and pain. After this last redemption you will not experience any further pain or subjugation.” Had you heard these prophecies centuries ago when they were first written, you might have scoffed. But today the impossible has become possible and events are unfolding so rapidly that we have difficulty absorbing their impact. So how are we to understand it all? The Yalkut compares our suffering to birth pangs. But birth pangs are deceptive; when the contractions begin it’s easy to ignore them since they are mild and occur between long intervals. As the birth becomes imminent, however, the contractions intensify and the pain becomes more intense. And just when it appears the woman can no longer endure the pain, the baby is born and new life enters the world. It is these labor pains to which we are witness today. How long will they last? It’s anyone’s guess but one thing is certain – please G-d, the birth is sure to take place. In the interim we may ask, “Is it possible to ease the suffering? Is it possible

The Book Shelf From Europe To Palestine To The U.S. The Story Of A Man, His Family, And His Community By Joel Mandel Title: Travails and Conquests: The Life of Dr. Leon A. Reich Author: Yaakov Kornreich Publisher: CreateSpace It can be said that history consists of a collection of the individual stories of people whose lives made a lasting impact. The biography of Dr. Leon Reich is one such story. It spans three critical eras of modern Jewish history. Leonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story begins during the years before World War II, and describes how Jewish families in Central Europe grappled with the life or death decision of whether to stay or flee in the face of the gathering Nazi storm. Leonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story continues as his family joined the struggling Jewish community in Palestine, and describes his unique contributions as a soldier and technician to the defense of the newborn State of Israel in its desperate fight for its survival. Leon then goes to the United State, and becomes part of the post-war renaissance of the American Orthodox community. He and his wife join a group of dedicated lay leaders in Flatbush, Brooklyn, and Leon plays a pivotal role in the development of some of the leading Jewish educational institutions of our times. As a child Leon and his parents voluntarily gave up their relatively comfortable situation in Poland a few years before the war to face the challenges and hardships of a new life in Palestine. The family arrived and started over with a small dairy farm on the outskirts of Tel Aviv where Leon grew up as a boy. When he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t in school Leon helped out with the milking and deliveries to the farmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s customers in Tel Aviv. Leon also volunteered for training with the Haganah youth, and was a member of the first unit to be called up for combat duty in November 1947. Leon experienced the War of Independence from a soldierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perspective, while remaining true to his Jewish ideals and beliefs. Faced with a moral dilemma, he refused to obey his unitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s orders to go to the beachfront and open fire on the Altalena, an Irgun ship that was filled with Holocaust survivors and arms to defend the country against the Arab invaders. Eventually, the Israel army recognized Leonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s technical skills and put him in charge of a special unit that modified, repaired and improved the aiming devices on the weapons and equipment used on the front lines. During this period, Leon demonstrated the creativity and imagination that was to mark his professional and communal leadership activities for the next 60 years. After the war ended, the army wanted Leon to participate in the further development of Israelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense industries. But Leon did not want a career in the military. He refused to accept a commission as an officer, and demanded his army discharge so that he could pursue a civilian career in optometry. His goal was to go to the U.S. to enroll in a highly regarded optometry program at Columbia University in New York City. To satisfy the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entry requirements, Leon planned to take the required courses at a community college in California, where he would

live and support himself with the help of family members living in the Los Angeles area. Leon arrived at Idlewild (now JFK) Airport in New York City on September 9, 1950, the day before Yom Kippur. Waiting for him at the gate was his fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cousin, Esther Richman, who invited Leon to spend Yom Kippur with her family at their home in Flatbush before continuing to California. Richman was accompanied by her daughter, Rosalie, a Brooklyn college student who came along to the airport for the ride. She and Leon quickly developed a friendship. Leonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s invitation to stay for Yom Kippur was extended to Sukkot and beyond. He missed his first semester of college classes, but by the time Leon finally left for California, a lifelong bond had been formed with Rosalie. The two were married the next summer, and returned from California to live in the Richman home in Flatbush when Leon gained admission to the Columbia program. After obtaining his optometry license, Leon started a neighborhood practice in the Richman home which specialized in the diagnosis and treatment of eye conditions, rather than selling eyeglasses. He became involved in the research and development of a more practical type of hard contact lens that was superior in several ways to the newly introduced soft contact lenses. He also developed a multi-disciplinary approach to diagnosing students with learning disabilities connected to treatable vision problems. In both cases, Leon had to battle the entrenched establishment to gain a hearing for his new ideas. Leon and Rosalie sank deep roots in the Flatbush community. They bought a home of their own and sent their three children to the Yeshivah of Flatbush. Leon and Rosalie were part of a group of religious parents who successfully fought to establish strict Orthodox standards of conduct for the Yeshivah of Flatbushâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lay leaders. When some of the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s non-Orthodox donors retaliated by halting their donations, Leon organized a parent volunteer-based fundraising campaign which enabled the yeshiva to finance its operations without having to rely on large individual contributions. In the 1960â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Leon launched an ambitious effort to expand an existing advanced studies program for alumni of the Yeshivah of Flatbush High School into an accredited Jewish college. Working with Dr. Bernard Lander, Leonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan evolved into the concept for Touro College. Leon was instrumental in enabling Touro to receive its charter from the New York State Department of Higher Education in 1970. In 1987, Leon was seriously injured in a mugging attack outside his home. After his miraculous recovery, Leon became determined to show his gratitude by applying the practical expertise in construction that he had gained in a side career as a small real estate investor and developer to meeting the needs of the Jewish community. Among those projects, Leon personally supervised the construction of the attractive new building of the Young Israel of Avenue J in Flatbush. Leon was also a driving force behind the establishment of a badly needed regional emergency medical center, located in Efrat, where his daughter and her family now live. In the meantime, Rosalie earned a Ph.D. from New York University, and became a full professor in the English literature department of the College of

Staten Island. In the early 1990â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Rosalie was asked to serve as national president of Emunah Women. With Leonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s support and encouragement, Rosalie used her communication skills to vigorously defend the rights of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel, and to refute supporters of the Oslo peace process in the media and international forums. This book is much more than a memoir to friends and members of the Reich family. It bears witness to the historical events and accomplishments in which Leon and Rosalie Reich played a significant part. In the process, it paints a vivid picture of the times and Jewish communities in which they lived, illuminating them for all generations, while offering Leon and Rosalieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unique perspective on issues with which the Jewish community still struggles to this day. All proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to the Young Israel of Avenue J. The book may be ordered direct from Amazon.com.

Preschoolers in the Rambam Day School of Representatives Visit Moscow Touro College Savannah, Geor-Dr. Robert Goldschmidt, Touro’s vice Last month, gia learn for about president planning and assessment, and Rabbi the Aleph Bais Dr. Simcha Fishbane, executive assistant to Touro and their names. President and CEO Dr. Alan Kadish, touched down

in Moscow to visit the local Touro campuses, the Lander Institute of Jewish Studies and Moscow University Touro. During the two-day visit to the Russian capital, they assessed the schools’ compliance with the accreditation standards of the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and met Rabbi Berel Lazar, chief rabbi of Russia. The administrators’ primary fo-

cus was academic oversight, but they said the most gratifying aspect was hearing about Touro’s impact on the local Jewish community. Of all the meetings they attended, Dean Goldschmidt said those held with the students were the most worthwhile. The students spoke of their professional aspirations, which include careers in Jewish education and Jewish communal service, as well as establishing their own businesses or working for foreign companies with branches in Moscow. By earning American degrees through Touro, they believe they can present themselves as the best candidates. Dean Goldschmidt also appreciated that the students were enthusiastic about their programs of study and praised their educational experience.

Earlier this month, the Rachel’s Children Reclamation Foundation held its annual commemoration of Rachel Imeinu’s yarzheit.

Rebbitzen Jaeger Speaks At Passaic Torah Institute This past Tisha B’Av more than 300 women heard divrei chizuk from Rebbetzin Tehila Jaeger. Rebbetzin Jaeger spout about chesed, reminding her listeners that chesed begins at home, and only after we give to those closest to us can we seek to give our time to communal chesed organizations both locally and abroad. The rebbetzin also implored the women to recognize that all deeds of chesed, both large and small, have to be given the same focus as we do not know the reward for our mitzvos. In addition, she stressed the great importance of davening for our brothers and sisters in Eretz Yisrael. For a copy of the shiur, visit ptiweb.org.

Eldan’s Expressway For Incoming Customers Eldan has launched a new and unique service at Ben-Gurion Airport – the Eldan Expressway, offering customers a fast and efficient process for picking up their rented vehicle, without having to wait at the rental counter. The new service is based on integrated technology; the reservations service is completed on the company website; details about the pick-up point of the rented vehicle are sent by text message directly to the customer’s cell phone; the rental contract is filled out on a tablet with no need to print it out. Eldan’s branch at Ben-Gurion Airport is the company’s largest branch. Customers include tourists (more than

50 percent of the branch customers), mainly from the United States and Europe, and Israelis living

abroad and returning to Israel for a home visit. The branch is open 24 hours a day. With the realization that customers arrive at the service counter after a long and tiring journey, Eldan devised this special service, easing and expediting one of the first steps of a tourist’s visit to Israel: Eldan’s Expressway. Shai Dahan, CEO of Eldan, said, “Eldan is a staunch advocate of service and innovation, and the Expressway reflects both principles. Through this new service, we allow our customers, who have had a long flight, to save valuable time and leave the airport as quickly and with as little fuss as possible.”

Im Yirtzeh Hashem Continued from p.35 a family as well, would be very difficult, so we decided she should wait until she was in her second year of studies before starting to date. But as Dina was now out of school and doing a vocational course part time, she decided she wanted to go into shidduchim right away. She met two boys who weren’t “Mr. Right” and then one of our sons-in-law suggested a boy he had grown up with and who sounded much more likely. The boy’s family did their checking out and a meeting was agreed on, but before it took place the boy’s family backed out. Dina wasn’t too upset as she hadn’t met him yet and so was not emotionally involved, but our son-in-law was most surprised at the sudden change of heart. Had they heard something unpleasant about Dina? We couldn’t imagine what. She was an extremely popular girl among her peers and teachers. Had the boy’s parents been bothered about the fact that she had left school early? But they had known that all along. We told him not to ask the boy’s parents what their reasons were, but to leave it. If it wasn’t bashert it wasn’t bashert. About a month later, we got a call from our son-inlaw. The boy’s parents had changed their minds and wanted the couple to meet. It took only two meetings for them to realize “this is it” and now, 10 years and seven children later, they are still extremely happy. But, of course, we always wondered what had caused the initial refusal and the change of heart. It was only some time later, when we had become good friends and relatives that we dared to ask our mechutanim what had happened. They sheepishly replied, “It sounds ridiculous now, but we wondered

if she perhaps had a personality disorder or was maybe even a bit schizophrenic. At first we got a picture and reports of her being very popular, but quiet and reserved and likes to take a back-stage role in things. Then, just when we decided she would be suitable for Yaakov, we suddenly heard two reports of her being ‘the biggest macher in the class,’ ‘the one always volunteering and being chosen to organize school events and machanot,’ and we just couldn’t reconcile these two conflicting pictures we were getting. “It was only a month or so later that we suddenly discovered that people we had been speaking to had confused her with her twin sister, who is really the exact opposite of her. Thank God she hadn’t met someone else in the meantime or Yaakov could have missed his bashert.” In retrospect, maybe we should have been more proactive when they first called it off and asked our son-in-law to check why. What if they hadn’t discovered their informants’ mistake – I shudder to think what might not-have-been as

Keeping Jerusalem By Hillel Fendel & Chaim Silberstein

Dovish Professor Demands Jewish Prayer Rights On Temple Mount Does the Israel Police Department have a handle on the potentially explosive fabric of coexistence between Jews and Arabs in the Holy City? Given the breakneck pace of events in and around Israel these days, most people might have trouble remembering the Arab riots that took place in several Jerusalem neighborhoods early last month. The police have not forgotten, however; over the course of one night last week over 50 suspects were

arrested. A total of over 600 Arabs have been arrested or detained in the past few weeks. The riots were particularly violent and widespread by Jerusalem standards. Stricken neighborhoods included Shuafat, Beit Hanina, Ras el-Amud (Maaleh Zeitim), and elsewhere. Policemen were injured, light-rail tracks and cars suffered considerable damage, rocks were thrown at buses and police, and trash bins were burned. Such results may not seem like much, given the tally of urban riots around the world. Ferguson, Missouri, for instance, has seen a week of looting and violent clashes between protesters and highly militarized police officers, over the shooting death of a black youth by a white police officer. The Jerusalem riots had an international flavor to them, however. Hamas gave its blessing to the disturbances, which began after Muhammad Abu-Khdir was found murdered in a forest; three Jews have been charged. A Hamas spokesman said Hamas “salutes” the “Jerusalem uprising against the occupation…” At one point, the U.S. State Department issued a travel warning for Jerusalem, urging American citizens to “defer nonessential travel and exercise caution.” Despite all, police seem to have the situation well under control. Nearly 200 of the suspects have been charged with crimes as of now – a strong indication the authorities will not allow politically-charged considerations to govern the day-to-day running of city affairs. Would that this spill over into housing affairs as well, with homes built wherever Jews want, not just in places that do not ruffle White House feathers. There is one area, however, where the police do seem to allow political consideration to get in the way. Let us quote Law Prof. Moshe Negbi, a legal expert and Israel Radio commentator known for his leftist, dovish positions: “I cannot accept under any circumstances the situation in which believing Jews are…deprived of the

possibility of actualizing their faith and religious service on the Temple Mount,” Negbi wrote in the most recent Makor Rishon weekend edition. “This arbitrary ban is an ugly stain on our democracy, and it also undermines the rule of law. It is a blatant violation of the values of freedom of religion and equality…. It is also a trampling of the Law of the Preservation of Holy Sites, legislated by the Knesset right after the Six-Day War, according to which the harming of the right of anyone to visit the Mount is punishable with five years in prison.” “Yet, behold,” wrote Negbi, “the Israel Police, which is charged with enforcing this law, is precisely the body that erects obstacles in the way of Jewish believers on their way to the Mount.” Negbi also had criticism of the court system for not demanding explanations for this situation. He similarly chastised the civil-rights organizations “who demand equal recognition for liberal streams and for Women of the Wall, yet stand quietly by while Jews are prevented from praying on the Mount because of a Waqf ‘veto’ and threats of violence.” Perhaps most notably, Negbi concludes that the guarantee of freedom of religion for all religions, and certainly for Jews, in all sites that are holy to them must be an absolutely necessary condition for a final arrangement in Jerusalem. His words – surprising for a man of his general political outlook – come on the heels an unexpected appearance in this connection by the chief rabbi of Tzfat at the Knesset Interior Committee this week. Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu asked the police to enhance both security and accessibility for the increasing numbers of Jews visiting the Temple Mount. Eldest son of the late Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu, Rav Shmuel called for an end to the “disgrace” on the Mount, and said that Jewish visitors must be protected more actively. “The number of Torah-observant visitors is increasing,” the rabbi told the police representatives at the session, “and the questions I receive indicate that this rate will continue. I ask you: Please protect my children and my students!” “Even at my own Sabbath table,” he said, “we have dynamic discussions about whether to visit the holy site. Half of my children do so.” He confirmed to the panel that his father, a former chief Sephardic rabbi of Israel, had called for the construction of a synagogue on the Temple Mount. The violent events in Jerusalem, and especially the threats of violence on the Temple Mount, emphasize the tenuous hold Israel has over the holy city of Yerushalayim. It appears that nearly every

road begins as a difficult thorny trail, then it opens up and the rest of the way is clear. The other path begins as a smooth passageway but ends in a thicket of thorns. An old man sits at the crossroads and warns the passersby, “Be careful. This road begins smoothly, but ends up all thorns. Rather choose the other road. Even though it begins as a difficult path, it opens up and will carry you well.” Anyone who listens to the man will work at the outset of his journey but will travel in peace the rest of the way; whereas anyone who ignores the advice of the old man will get caught in the thorns for rest of his passage. The Daas Zakainim explains this is what the Torah is telling us. If a man sins and follows his inclinations, he will find comfort in this world – but when he dies, he will go to a place that is all thorns. However, if one works in this world and labors in Torah study and mitzvahs, he will merit the World to Come – which is all goodness, joy, and happiness. This Daas Zakainim is difficult to understand because the meanings of the verses seem self-evident – serve Hashem and you will receive blessing; violate the mitzvahs and you will be cursed. It doesn’t seem he is adding much to our understanding with this

Life: The School Of Growth “See I have placed in front of you today a blessing and a curse. The blessing: if you will listen to all of the mitzvahs of Hashem your G-d as I have commanded you today…” – Devarim 11:21 In these verses the Torah sets out two divergent paths. One leads to ultimate success and blessing, the other to devastation and curses. If you follow in the ways of Hashem, you will be richly rewarded. You will look back at your years of sacrifice with enormous joy and satisfaction, saying to yourself, “Whatever price I paid was so worth it. I am now being compensated beyond anything I could have imagined.” On the other hand, if you don’t follow the Torah’s ways, there will come a time when you will deeply regret your mistake and you will look back and say, “How could I have been so foolish? How could I have chosen so poorly?” The Daas Zakainim brings light to this concept with a mashol. He says it is comparable to a crossroads. One

Shafier Continued from p.62 mashol. If the point is that punishment and reward aren’t in this world but rather in the next, that concept doesn’t need a parable. What point is the Daas Zakainim trying to bring home to us? Progressive Weight Training A yeshivishe fellow went to a power-lifting gym to learn how to work out. As a kid, he had little experience with sports and was clearly out of his element. Recognizing this, the coach showed him various exercises and worked closely with him. One day, this fellow was overheard saying, “That coach, I don’t know what’s with him. Every time I get the exercise right, he goes and adds more weight to the bar. What’s wrong with him?” The point this fellow missed was that progressive weight training is all about increasing the load. The goal of the activity is to coax the body to grow. By gradually increasing the workload, the body is called upon to respond. The work should never be easy. The nature of the activity is to incrementally increase the demand placed on the body, thereby causing it to grow. This is a good parable because in life we are put into many situations. If a person doesn’t understand why he is on this planet, he will have many questions. Why is life so difficult? Why is it that when I finally get things under control, a whole new set of circumstances arises that sets everything out of kilter? Why can’t life just be easy? The point he is missing is the very purpose of life. Hashem put us on this planet to grow. Many of the challenges and situations are given to us specifically for that reason. It isn’t by accident, and it isn’t because Hashem doesn’t pay attention. Quite the opposite, these situations were hand-designed to demand from us. They are catalysts to change who

we are. In weight training, the movement of the bar isn’t the significant part; the demand on the body is. So too in life, the situations I face are far less significant than my reactions to them. Who I become is a result of my attitude and the way I handle my challenges. When a person understands this perspective, life itself makes sense. If not, the situations in life seem arbitrary and unfair. The answer to the Daas Zakainim seems to be that this mashol defines our path in life. The road we are being asked to take isn’t easy. It isn’t laden with roses and doesn’t smell like lilacs. It has thorns. A life properly led will have moments of doubt, pain, and confusion. That doesn’t mean we are on the wrong path. Quite the opposite – if life is going too smoothly, it’s a bad sign. Since the purpose of life is to grow, we need the challenges of life to help us reach our potential. If the road is too level, that is likely a sign we have chosen the wrong path. Hashem wants us to enjoy our stay on this planet, but there is a plan and a purpose to it all. If a person lives his life in accordance with the Torah, he finds deep satisfaction, an inner sense of peace and tranquility, and true simcha. But it isn’t a walk in the park. There is much work along the way.

There are trials, travails, and circumstances that demand growth. If a person responds appropriately, he finds a sense of inner peace because he is in synch with his purpose in life. That sense of balance is an indicator that he is on the right path, and the work he puts in on that path will bring him to true joy, happiness, and elation in this world, and much more so in the World to Come.

The Three Prayers Of Moshe 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. This week’s d’var Torah is dedicated in honor of the marriage of Elana Kreitman and Michael Kahn. Shabbos Mevorchim Chodesh Elul falls out either on Parshas Re'eh or, on occasion, on Parshas Eikev. The themes of repentance and free will to return to Hashem connect these parshiyos to Elul. The central theme of Selichos is the repeated recitation of the 13 attributes of mercy revealed to Moshe when he received the second Luchos. Each of the three 40-day periods spent by Moshe on Mount Sinai associated with the receipt of the Luchos was defined by a unique prayer, as described in the union of stories related in Ki Tisa and Eikev. The first was prior to descending Mount Sinai with the original set of Luchos, the second when he returned to ask forgiveness and the third when he returned to retrieve the second set of Luchos. Moshe says that Hashem accepted his prayers and agreed not to destroy bnei Yisrael after each of his prayers. Why did Moshe have to pray three separate times for the same thing? Why was the third prayer necessary if Hashem had already given him the second set of Luchos? The first prayer of Moshe was Vayechal, where Moshe's petition was that no matter how bad bnei Yisrael were, the Egyptians were worse. The Jews should not be destroyed lest the Egyptians rationalize

their defeat during the exodus. Hashem agreed and suspended the immediate judgment and sentence of destruction. When Moshe descended the mountain and saw the golden calf he decided to break the Luchos. He reasoned that the Luchos were the marriage document between Hashem and knesses Yisrael. If they would accept that document they would be obligated by the laws of the Sinaitic covenant and would be deemed to have violated them with the eigel and punished accordingly. Moshe decided it was better to leave them in their unconnected state vis-à-vis Hashem and broke the Luchos. When the Jews saw what Moshe had done they realized their sin and began to have thoughts of repentance. Moshe ascended the mountain a second time. Now, not only did he have to ask for forgiveness, he had to convince Hashem, so to speak, to renew the covenant with the people. Moshe's original prayer suspended the execution of judgment, but he could not ask for forgiveness while the Jews were still dancing around the eigel. By breaking the Luchos, the covenant was broken. Hashem told Moshe that he agreed not to destroy them – “l'hashmid” – but there was no requirement to grant them a second covenant. They can exist like any of the many nomadic tribes that roamed the desert, all of whom disappeared and played no role in the divine direction of the world. As to the promise to the patriarchs to give them a Torah and Eretz Yisrael, Moshe's children will multiply and after many generations eventually they will receive the Torah. Moshe prayed for 40 days that not only should they not be destroyed physically, but that they should be granted a new covenant and reacquire their status of am ha’nivchar without reservation. At

the end of his efforts he was rewarded with a command to hew new tablets, as Hashem forgave them. They were re-granted their important role in the divine plan. Moshe said Hashem did not desire “hashchisecha.” That verb, l'hashchis, does not mean to destroy physically. It indicates an undermining and dismissal of someone or something, an emotional or spiritual destruction. For instance an ineffective educator is considered a mashchis as s/he causes a student to abandon the potential each child has that is waiting to be nurtured and developed. The confidence of a person who has invested great effort into preparing a masterful lecture can be destroyed by the words of a jealous colleague, a mashchis. The resulting lack of confidence will cause the next lecture to indeed be inferior. The Rav noted that this explains the significant role the Jewish people played throughout history, despite our relatively tiny population. The

However where Israel and Jews are involved, they become the dominant issue and the others are relegated to second story status. One could take the Rav's description of world events from some 60 years ago, update them to use today's date and the news would be exactly the same. Moshe's second tefillah successfully restored the covenant with Hashem and reestablished the Jewish people’s unique historical  of our quality, am ha’nivchar, not our quantity. If Moshe received the second set of Luchos, why did he again pray for 40 days and nights during the third visit to Mount Sinai? Moshe recognized that similar situations will occur in future generations when Jews will violate the covenant. Who will call

them to repent, as Moshe had? Hashem answered him with the promise of the 13 attributes that begin with the repetition of Hashem's name. Chazal say this refers to Hashem before and after the sin. Hashem promised to provide that inner voice to the Jew, constantly prodding him to return to Hashem, to live a holy existence. Hashem promised that He will accept the Jew and erase the blemish after he sins as long as he repents. When a politician violates the public trust he resigns his post. He may express remorse, but the community is not required to maintain him in his position. A felony conviction remains on record after the convict pays his debt to society. Our covenant with Hashem says that no matter how far we may stray, we can always return to Hashem and reset our relationship. When thousands sinned by attending the parties of Achashveirosh, it was the barely audible sound of Hashem prodding them to return that saved the day. A kohen gadol who sins and commits even a major transgression punishable with lashes returns to his status after he repents.

Hashem promised to be both father and mother to the Jewish people. Both love the child, however the difference between them is that a father will play with the child as long he is clean. As soon as the child soils himself he will return the child to the mother. After the mother cleans the child, the father will take the child again. If Hashem acted only as father, teshuvah would not be possible. It is the maternal aspect of Hashem that allows us to return completely  formula for teshuvah, the core of the month of Elul, was the result of Moshe's third prayer.

In the sixth aliyah he RABBI MEIR ORLIAN Restoring the Primacy of Choshen Mishpat heard the reader mention “shemittah” a number of times. “When is shemittah?” Yisrael asked his father. “Very soon!” replied Mr. Silver. “This coming year, in just one month, shemittah 5775 begins in Israel.” “It’s a shame that outside of Israel we don’t have a chance to perform this mitzvah,” said Yisrael. “Anyway, I thought that shemittah was already addressed at the end of Sefer Vayikra, in Parshat Behar. What’s it doing here?” “We’re leining now, and shouldn’t be talking,” Mr. Silver gently quieted his son. “At the Shabbos table we can discuss it at length.” When they returned home, the Silver family sat down to eat the Shabbos meal. Mr. Silver made Kiddush and Hamotzi hey ha an entr e of sh an sang a Shabbos song. “Could you please tell me about shemittah now?” Yisrael asked his father. “I was just getting to it,” replied Mr. Silver. “The mitzvah of shemittah has two aspects. One is to rest the land and refrain from agricultural work, which applies only in Israel and was discussed in Parshat Behar. The other is to relinquish outstanding loans that are past due, which applies throughout the world and we read about this morning.” (C.M. 67:1) “You mean that if I lent someone money and he hasn’t paid me back, he won’t have to repay after shemittah?” asked Yisrael. “I never heard of loans being cancelled!” hat is eca se i e instit te ing a form called ‘pruzbul,’ whereby you give authority of the loan to beis din,” explained Mr. Silver. “Then the loan is not cancelled and you are allowed to collect it even after shemittah. Pruzbul is usually done nowadays just before Rosh Hashanah.” “Can I come with you this year when you do it?” asked Yisrael. “Sure,” replied Mr. Silver. “I don’t remember, though, whether the pruzbul is done this year – before the beginning of shemittah – or next year before

the end of shemittah.” h sai israe o can e n o t “We can ask Rabbi Dayan when we go to Minchah,” said Mr. Silver. “Then at Seudah Shlishis we can share the answer with the family.” After Minchah Mr. Silver and Yisrael approached Rabbi Dayan. “We were discussing shemittah of loans and pruzbul at the Shabbos table,” Mr. Silver said. “When should the pruzbul be written – before Rosh Hashanah this year or next?” “Shemittah cancels loans only at the end of the shemittah year, sunset of 29 Elul 5775,” replied Rabbi Dayan. “The accepte practice is to e the pruzbul then, but some are meticulous to arrange a pruzbul also the end of this year, 5774.” “What is this based on?” asked Yisrael. “The Torah, in Parshat Re’eh, states as follows,” replied Rabbi Dayan. “ ‘At the end of seven years you shall institute a remission. This is the matter of the remission: Every creditor shall remit his authority over what he has lent his fellow.’ ” “Since the verse states ‘at the end of seven years,’ the loan is cancelled only at the end of the shemittah year,” explained Rabbi Dayan. “Thus, it seems that there is no need to draft a pruzbul until the end of next year. This is the ruling of the Shulchan Aruch, based on the Rambam.” (C.M. 67:30-31) “Then why do I remember something about a pruzbul before shemittah?” asked Mr. Silver. “The Rosh [Gittin 4:18,20] cites a Tosefta that the pruzbul should be written ‘the eve of Rosh Hashanah of she-

vi’is,’ i.e., before the shemittah year begins,” replied Rabbi Dayan. “He explains the verses to mean that shemittah cancels the loan at the end of the seven years, so that the borrower is required to repay it during the shemittah year but the creditor should not express his authority throughout the shemittah year. Therefore, the Rosh maintains that the pruzbul should be made before the shemittah.” (SM”A 67:53) “How do other authorities deal with the Tosefta?”

Why Do Ninety Percent Of Baby Fish Die? By Karin Kloosterman Zoology researchers Roi Holzman and Victor China at Tel Aviv Universi-

ty weren’t the first to notice that more than 90 percent of fish larvae die in the wild, and that more than 99 percent of fish won’t live to reach maturity. They are the first however, they believe, to explain why this is happening – and their research could help conservationists give fish a fighting chance on fish farms and in the wild. The research was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS). Combining biology with physics, the two researchers uncovered

Continued from p.68 a process called hydrodynamic starvation. Their studies show that most baby fish are destined to die because they are unable to feed from their environment due to a process limited by the physics of water. “Unlike mammals, most fish release eggs and sperm externally in the water. There is almost no maternal care. The fertilized eggs drift to the ocean where the larvae hatch,” Holzman tells Israel21c. “In the beginning they have no mouth and feed off their yolk sac. Once they start feeding, most of them start dying. Within two weeks, over 90 percent of the larvae have died. This phenomenon has been known for over a century.” Multiple hypotheses over the years have speculated that the problem stems from pollution, drifting, unsuitable habitats, lack of food, predation or disease, he explains. But even under the best conditions, at least 70 percent of newly hatched fish still die. For example, the Tel Aviv researchers found that at Har Dag, a veteran fish farm in Eilat, typically 250,000 larvae survive from one million hatched eggs. “It’s obviously something else that is happening here. There are no predators, they don’t drift and they have plenty to eat,” says Holzman. “I started thinking about this problem four years ago and yet found no one who had come up with a good answer. In research, your best commodity is your question, not your answer.” What Holzman and his colleagues discovered is linked to the physics of small things. There is an interaction of fish bodies and their surrounding fluid, and this interaction changes with size. Due to weak electric signals between a body and the water, a small layer of water sticks to the surface and gets dragged around with the fish. We don’t feel this when we dive into the water because humans are so much bigger than fish larvae. But this layer lies heavy on the tiny larvae. “When you are small you drag a proportionately huge layer of water around with you, which changes the way organisms feed and swim. When you are very small you can’t use fins or a propeller, but swim with a screw-like instrument called flagella,” Holzman explains. This business of swimming with flagella can get sticky and can prevent a small larva from opening its mouth to generate a flow of water carrying in prey. “This mode of feeding can fail,” says Holzman, who set up an experiment that increased the viscosity of water, using dextran, showing how even bigger, more successful larvae can fail at feeding, and then fail to thrive. “We showed that in these conditions the bigger larvae behave and feed like the small ones. Like the movie Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, we took old larvae and made them feel tiny again. They failed to feed because of the high viscosity in the water. They were not adapted under these circumstances,” says Holzman. They put all the experiments on film, which was no easy task as the larvae are three to four millimeters long and almost transparent. Their mouths are about 100 to 200 microns in size, and take a quick 20 milliseconds to open and close. Holzman is reasonably sure that fish larvae die off not from pollution, but a survival mechanism inherent in nature: “The whole reproduction mode is coping with the loss of so many, like sperm production in human males. “But I think there is an edge here. If this is the system, we can think about what we can do artificially to increase survival to get better products when doing agriculture – to increase growth rates.” He thinks that overfishing, rather than hydrodynamic starvation, is the simple reason why fish populations have crashed globally. Next, the scientific community may be able to apply Holzman and China’s finding to figure out ways to improve the odds for fish around the world.

A Rose Among Thorns In Tribute to Rose M. Tunis – Raizel Mirel bas Elchanan Mordechai By Penina Metal Her actions were like a light shining in the darkness. Her life was predicated on doing Hashem’s will to the best of her ability. So set was she in her ways that she could not comprehend that there might be more than one way to serve Ha Kodosh Boruch Hu. For example, recovering from heart surgery was no excuse not to bentch the chodesh. When her grandson brought her a siddur with a different nusach, she was shocked that it did not include the very beautiful Yehi Ratzon tefillah. Kashrus, as well as all of the mitzvoth in the private purview of women, were performed with modesty and her customary attention to detail. Tzedaka? One gave tzedaka without fanfare (b’seter). Testimonial dinners were not her way. She raised so much money for our yeshiva by administrating voluntarily, the simcha and memorial funds of our school formerly known as Yeshiva of Hudson County, now renamed The Rosenbaum Yeshiva of North Jersey. (This system unfortunately has fallen out of practice, but if I may humbly suggest, reinstituting this program will provide sorely needed funds for yeshivot and mosdot). All of us attended Stern College, so we dormed. We often brought home friends for Shabbos. There they found not only delicious home-cooked meals, but a surrogate mother, who would take their concerns to her caring heart.

Choshen Mishpat Continued from p.67 asked Yisrael. “It seems pretty explicit!” “The Rashba writes that the Tosefta’s version is inaccurate and should read, ‘the eve of Rosh Hashanah of [motzaei] shevi’is,” answered Rabbi Dayan. “Some manuscripts, in fact, have this version.” “What is the bottom line?” asked Mr. Silver. “Should I bother drafting a pruzbul this year?” “The common practice is to follow the majority of authorities and draft the pruzbul only toward the end of shemittah, in 5775” replied Rabbi Dayan. “The Chazon Ish and Rav S.Z. Auerbach, zt”l, acted so. However, some are meticulous to prepare a pruzbul also before the shemittah year, in 5774, in deference to the opinion of the Rosh and his version.” (See Pischei Teshuvah 67:5; Shemittas Kesafim U’pruzbul, by Rav Zvi Cohen, 12:17, 32-34.)

We grew up and married, b”H, so Mommie “adopted” our neighbors’ concerns as her own, offering a friendly ear and whatever help she could. A new baby for one of her co-workers meant that Mommie would clip and save diaper coupons for them. She loved without limits, and while she expected nothing in return, she did expect a kind word or a phone call simply to ask how she was feeling as the years and infirmities plagued the last 10 years of her life. I can still hear her preach, “There is no excuse for bad manners!” She drilled it into her children and in turn so have we inculcated this basic menschlichkeit into the generations that she leaves behind. During her lifetime, Mommie used to say: “There is only one beautiful baby in the world and every mother has one.” To this belief, I can state my own: “There was only one outstanding mother in the world and she was mine!” Mommie, I am working so hard to bring Mashiach. I cannot comprehend how I have continued on without you, but you have set the standards and I am trying so hard to live up to your expectations until the coming of the geula, bimheirah bi’yameinu, keyn yehi ratzon. Amen. Your Loving Daughter #2, Penny

Letters To The Editor Tribute To Jabotinsky On the night of Aug. 12 at the Fifth Avenue Synagogue, Cantor Joseph Malovany, the shul’s esteemed cantor, opened the annual Ze’ev Jabotinsky memorial event co-sponsored by Americans for a Safe Israel and the Nordau Circle with beautiful renditions of Hatikvah and the Star Spangled Banner. I made the introductory remarks, stressing that Jabotinsky’s ideology was the motivating force for the creation of AFSI by Shmuel Katz, his brilliant biographer. Thanks to the driving forces of Drs. Rael and Eric Isaac, and AFSI’s first chairman, Herbert Zweibon, a”h, to whom the evening was dedicated, Americans for a Safe Israel has always embodied the Iron Wall philosophy of Jabotinsky. Judy Freedman Kadish, AFSI’s director of special projects and MC for the evening, introduced David Krakow, longtime member of the Nordau Circle. Dave brought with him a tape of the Betar Song, and with the help of AFSI board member Charlie Bernhaut, the song was played with the Betarniks in the audience standing and singing along. It was a touching and beautiful moment. Professsor Rebecca Kobrin of Columbia University described how Jabotinsky formed the British army’s Jewish Legion in World War I and created

Betar, the Haganah, and the Irgun. AFSI chairman Mark Langfan used his famous maps to illustrate how Israel must be able to defend itself against the ever-increasing range of enemy rockets and why it should be recognized as NATO’s only ally in the Mediterranean. Other speakers included Yifa Segal, recently arrived from Israel, who electrified the audience with stories about the Israeli news agency Tazpit, which, she explained, is devoted to disseminating the full and truthful story of Israel to international media outlets; and Glen Richter, longtime AFSI member and devoted participant in AFSI Chizuk missions to Israel who made his name as leader of the Student Struggle for Soviet Jewry. Toward the end of the event, Cantor Malovany sang the Kel Maaleh Rachamim for Jabotinsky, moving many in the audience to tears. Judy Kadish invited everyone to join AFSI on our next Chizuk mission to Israel, Oct. 26-November 5, suggesting this might be the best way to carry the Jabotinsky message forward.

Thank You, Sean Hannity Jewish Press readers will no doubt take interest in our open letter to radio/TV talk show host Sean Hannity expressing appreciation for his support of Israel. The letter, excerpts of which follow, has appeared on websites and blogs all over the Internet. Dear Sean Hannity, …Schindler’s List was 1,200 strong and below you will also find 1,200+ deeply grateful signatories – among them the legendary Jackie Mason. Mr. Hannity, on behalf of GA-GA for Israel, our members and the 1200+ individuals of both the Christian and Jewish faiths, I would like to extend a profound thank you for your courageous and unrelenting support of the State of Israel. Your recent reporting from the Jewish homeland was first class – as are you – and it offered a purview of Israel that other journalists rarely dare to show. Sadly, among the casualties of this war launched by Hamas is the truth – a casualty that even the wholly capable care not to resuscitate. But…you’ve done well to breathe life back into it, to resurrect it. You took your viewers on a brave and heartfelt journey from Hamas’s terror tunnels to Israeli-playground bomb shelters, from historical sites to the broken heart of an Israeli mother whose son was kidnapped and killed by Hamas…. They say Israel has nine Iron Domes, but you, Mr. Hannity are the tenth one as you persistently knock the lies and misinformation out of the air and shield Israel with the full force of your integrity,

beliefs, and honest news coverage…. Israel is the only true democracy in the Middle East…. On a daily basis Israel is innovating world-changing cures and technologies, from 3D printing to the endoscopy capsule PillCam to devices that help the wheelchair-bound walk and the blind see. The Israeli army is among the first responders [to] natural disasters around the globe…. If only Israel’s enemies would engage themselves in such positive pursuits instead of perpetually conspiring to wipe Israel off the map, they would certainly do better for themselves and their people. Instead of laboriously digging tunnels to import weapons of terror, which they launch indiscriminately at civilian targets, let them build infrastructure and a future for the next generation of Palestinians. If a tree grows in Brooklyn it can grow in Gaza too, if only they’d plant one! And so, Mr. Hannity, it is with the deepest gratitude, appreciation, and reverence that we thank you for your support, your decency, and your valiance and for seeing the aforementioned beauty in Israel that too many choose to ignore. Your actions have truly resonated in our hearts and your steadfast friendship gives us great comfort that we do not stand alone. May God’s own words be the last here and fill all your days: “I will bless those who bless you.” Aliza Davidovit Founder Rhoda Sonken Administrator Ga-Ga for Israel

The Metzitzah B’Peh Decision A three-judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals sitting in Manhattan created a stir over the weekend with its decision in the continuing metzitzah b’peh controversy. The court unanimously overturned a ruling by district court Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald that had effectively dismissed a challenge to the constitutionality of New York City’s right to regulate metzitzah b’peh, or religiously grounded oral suction of the circumcision wound opened during the course of a bris milah. The case involves a city requirement that metzitzah b’peh not be performed without written, informed parental consent. Metzitzah b’peh is one of the traditional means for cleansing of the wound occasioned by circumcision and is believed by many to be integral to bris milah itself. While the appeals court did not invalidate the notice and consent requirement, as some have erroneously claimed, it did rule that Judge Buchwald had erred in applying an insufficiently exacting test for determining whether it’s an intrusion on the free exercise of religion. In fact, the appeals court sent the case back to Judge Buchwald to determine whether there is sufficient evidence available to demonstrate that the regulation served a “compelling state interest” that could not be met by a more narrowly drawn means that is less burdensome on religious practice. This is the so-called strict scrutiny test for constitutionality, as distinct from the rational relationship test that had been applied by Judge Buchwald. Under Judge Buchwald’s approach, the city only had to show that the regulation was generally and reasonably related to the city’s overarching responsibility in the area of protecting the health and safety of its citizens. That is, since the city can generally regulate contact

with open wounds, a religious context is of no moment. But the appeals court found that the regulation was directed at the religious-based practice of metzitzah b’peh and therefore the more rigorous test was appropriate. So now actual fact will take center stage. Several years ago the city concluded that the metzitzah b’peh procedure created unacceptable risks for newborns in terms of the transmission of neo-natal herpes through contact with a mohel carrying the herpes virus. Given findings that more than half the adult population of the United States carries oral herpes, the city promulgated a rule requiring any mohel intending to perform metzitzah b’peh to provide parents with a form listing what the city believed to be risks associated with the procedure and a place for parents to record their consent if they still wished to go through with it. The form also contained the city’s recommendation that the procedure not be performed. Some religious organizations and mohelim challenged the regulation of metzitzah b’peh as an undue restriction on religious practice, citing what they alleged was the inconclusiveness of the evidence offered by the city to justify the infringement on the right to perform metzitzah b’peh. Although the regulation is still in effect and enforceable, going forward the city will nevertheless have to demonstrate to the district court judge, with convincing, factual evidence, that there is a distinct causal connection between metzitzah b’peh and neo-natal herpes. And even if there is, can measures short of the consent requirement be employed? It will be interesting to see what the city can come up with in the course of the legal proceedings. Sterile statistics and generalized conclusions will no longer do.

Time and Place of Sale: The Sale will be held on September 3, 2014 at 2:30 p.m. in the United States Bankruptcy Court, Cadman Plaza East, Brooklyn, New York, in the Courtroom of the Honorable Carla E. Craig, Courtroom No. 3529. b. Sale Pursuant to Third Amended Chapter 11 Plan: The Seller of the Property is the Debtor.

The Guns Of August (Continued from Front Page)

vise of Nazi brutality. Seeing the photo of Uncle Sigmar in his youth had left me dumbfounded. Sigmar Guggenheimer, of blessed memory, was my great-uncle and I knew him as a smiling, kind-hearted figure distinguished in our family for the notes and cards he penned in both English and Hebrew calligraphy. It was hard for me to imagine the gentleman I knew being so young at one time. And in a German uniform? It made no sense. To this day I remember how I stared at the photo in silence. My father, knowing what I was thinking, smiled and answered my unasked question. “Of course Uncle Sigmar didn’t know, and nobody else knew, what was going to happen,” he said. “The world was different then, and we Jews were a part of Germany. Nobody then could ever have imaged how things would turn out.” And that, in a nutshell, encapsulated all the geopolitical change that would come about from the Great War. The crisis was ignited on August 1, 1914 when Germany declared war on Russia. Quickly, the other European powers, inflamed by fierce national rivalry and bitter border disputes, entered the fray – Russia, France and Britain on one side, the Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman Empires and Germany on the other. Significantly, August 1, 1914 fell on the 9th of Av, the Jewish national day of mourning. Unbeknownst to anyone at that time, the Great War would lead directly to an even more catastrophic war a generation later – World War II and the greatest tragedy in Jewish history.

I

n their headlong rush to war, the armies on both sides drafted millions, including hundreds of thousands of Jews. In Germany alone more than 100,000 Jews served in Kaiser Wilhelm’s army and at least 12,000 died in combat. The prospect was high that Jews would wind up fighting each other, religious brethren forced by circumstances to slay each other. Such a predicament is immortalized in a Yiddish ballad about a French and a German soldier grappling in hand-to-hand combat. The stronger, about to bayonet his adversary, hears the man pray the Shema in a quaking voice. He drops his weapon and exclaims, “We’re both Jews; we’re brothers!” This story typifies the predicament of the Jews of the Diaspora, cast adrift without borders of their own, sometimes forced to fight each other under foreign flags, a bitter poison fruit of galus. I once told my father, who was born eight years after the Great War in a German border village, about this ballad. He nodded and said that during World War I he had relatives on the other side of the Rhine River in France, but thankfully knew of no such confrontation among the mishpachah. He told me Sigmar, who was 27 in 1914, rarely spoke of that time, but he showed me several photographs of Sigmar in a cavalry uniform posing astride a horse. From history books we know that World War I, with its savage trench warfare and mustard gas attacks, had an atrocious death rate. Sigmar, however, emerged intact. He later moved to America with his wife, raising two daughters and enjoying a peaceful life here until his death in 1985 at the age of 98. But life would not end so peacefully for three of my father’s other uncles – Marx, Benjamin, and Herman – as well as his own father, Philip, all of whom had served in the German army during World War I. Philip had been drafted at age 43 in the second year of the Great War. At the time he was a cattle dealer and kosher butcher but in his twenties he’d been a master chef at a renowned Jewish-owned hotel in Karlsruhe near the picturesque Black Forest, the German equivalent of Grossinger’s in the Catskills. Experienced in catering and food management, Philip was put in charge of a mobile field kitchen that provided meals for an army company in Serbia on the Eastern front. In a bittersweet tone my father recounted an incident in 1916 in which his own father became “a hero of the kaiser’s army and the German nation; a lot of good it did for us Jews.” A Serbian cavalryman had suddenly appeared

and was charging toward a food wagon when Philip stopped him with a sharp-aimed shot, saving the lives of the soldiers clustered nearby. For that, he was awarded an Iron Cross of Valor. But in the cauldron of anti-Semitism that followed the Great War and would lead to Hitler’s ascendance, his Iron Cross ended up meaning nothing. On Kristallnacht, Philip, his brother Benjamin, and brothers-in-law Marx and Herman would be arrested and taken to Dachau for the “crime” of being Jews. They were held for eight tortuous weeks before being allowed to return home to their wives. Two years later, Philip, his brothers, and their wives were deported to internment and death camps where they eventually died. Philip’s wife, my grandmother Rosa, was Uncle Sigmar’s favorite sister. She was gassed at Auschwitz. I can only imagine how anguishing it must have been for him; he fought so nobly for the kaiser in the First World War only to see Germany turn on the Jews and slaughter his family in the Second. That was an all too common experience of German Jews, 30,000 of whom won field decorations in the Great War. This of course saved none of them, as those who could not escape became victims of the mad German plan to exterminate the Jews. Nazi SS commander Heinrich Himmler received “formal approval” for this extermination policy on August 2, 1941, which also happened to fall on the 9th of Av. All we know too well, some six million Jews were slaughtered in World War II, a direct outgrowth of the First World War twenty years before. This number comprised two thirds of European Jewry and a full third of the world’s Jewish population, a catastrophe from which we Jews, at least in numbers, have not yet recovered.

T

he world wars caused unimaginable anguish for the Jews but God also scripted a great glory for our people. The medieval-style Turkish Ottoman Empire had held sway over the Middle East for more than four hundred years. Under Ottoman rule, Eretz Yisrael was left uncultivated and neglected, a wasteland of desert, malaria-ridden swamps, and crumbling villages, with even Jerusalem falling into ruin. In his 1867 travelogue The Innocents Abroad, Mark Twain described his trip to the Holy Land where he found a “desolate country.” It is “a silent mournful expanse,” he wrote, “whose soil is rich enough, but is given over wholly to weeds…. We never saw a human being on the whole route…. There was hardly a tree or shrub anywhere. Even the olive tree and the cactus, those fast friends of a worthless soil, had almost deserted the country.” The land, pervaded by poverty and neglected by uncaring absentee landlords, had always had some Torah-observant Jews living there in such places as Jerusalem, Hebron, Safed and Tiberias. These were mostly poor souls living on the tzedakah of Jews in the Diaspora; the Turks at best tolerated their presence. Palestine remained in this forlorn state until the virus of anti-Semitism flared up anew and brought an increasing number of Jews to its shores in the early 20th century. In the last decades of Tzarist Russia, waves of deadly pogroms were unleashed on the helpless Jews there, prompting many thousands to settle in Eretz Yisrael. These pogroms and the notorious Dreyfus Affair galvanized prominent Austrian Jewish journalist Theodor Herzl to seek salvation for the Jewish people by creating the modern Zionist movement. Herzl tirelessly wrote and spoke about Jewish emigration to Palestine. He even met with Abdul Hamid, the sultan of the Ottoman Empire, and with Kaiser Wilhelm, asking them for help in establishing a Jewish homeland. They said no – and in World War I they and their regimes would be toppled. Russian Jews who fled to Israel began transforming the neglected, barren land. There was a Zionist-minded scientist, however, who went in a different direction. Born in Belarus in 1874, Chaim Weizmann left his birthplace to study in Germany and Switzerland, receiving his Ph.D. in chemistry. In 1904 he arrived in England where he became a lecturer at the University of Manchester. At the university he developed a groundbreaking method to mass-produce acetone, an important ingredient in ammunition. This process became essential for the British military in meeting its armament

needs during the Great War and Weizmann became famous for his work. Still an ardent Zionist and now with connections in the British Parliament, Weizmann lobbied for the milestone Balfour Declaration in which Britain expressed support of the establishment of a Jewish homeland in Palestine. This all came about as the Ottoman Empire collapsed and was carved up at the end of World War I. While the Balfour Declaration gave our people an “official” foothold in the Holy Land, Britain closed its doors to Jewish immigration in our greatest time of need barely a generation later, favoring Arabs over Jews in the hopes of getting oil from the rest of the Middle East. Attempts were made to partition Palestine between Arab and Jews, with the Jews getting only a small fraction of the land. This was contrary to Britain’s original promise in the Balfour Declaration. When the British Mandate expired on May 14, 1948, David Ben-Gurion declared a Jewish state in this truncated area. But the surrounding Arab armies immediately descended upon it “to drive the Jews into the sea.” And so it was that a small ill-supplied army representing 600,000 Jews in the infant Jewish state defeated well-armed Arab armies representing millions of oil-rich Arabs, the victory a stunning testament to divine providence – hashgacha pratis. Created from the ruins of the Ottoman Empire were the Arab countries we see today falling into bloody tribal chaos. States created with arbitrary borders by the victorious powers after the Great War, they all had populations of Jews who in most cases had lived there long centuries before the Muslim Arab conquests. When these new Arab states became independent of Turkish and Western imperial domination, the persecution of their native Jews rose to intolerable levels. These Mizrachi Jews poured into Israel, well over half a million of them. Though it had started on the winning side, another political casualty of the Great War was the Romanov dynasty of Russia, whose regime had presided over the bloody pogroms. Russia fell to the Bolsheviks in 1917 but amid the ensuing chaos Jewish communities were once again caught in the crosshairs of violence. Between 1917 and 1921, Jews were attacked by a succession of anti-Semites – Cossacks, Polish militias, Ukrainian nationalists, and demobilized Austrian and German troops who on their way home from the Eastern front took delight in brutalizing our people. All told, as many as 250,000 Jews were killed and more than half a million left homeless in the recorded 1,326 pogroms that destroyed hundreds of centuries-old shtetls where Jewish life had once thrived. This destruction was centered in the Ukraine where a generation later more than a million Jews were killed by the Nazis and their enthusiastic Ukrainian collaborators and where today nationalistic conflict still rages on. Under the Communist regime of the Soviet Union, the Jews were virtual prisoners for much of the century and when it finally dissolved in 1991, Russia’s Jews left for Israel in great numbers, in what Benjamin Netanyahu termed “a great miracle.”

B

efore our very eyes ancient prophecies are being fulfilled – the ingathering of the exiles, the blooming of the land, the beginnings of the return of the ten lost tribes. Today, for the first time since before the Roman destruction of Jerusalem, more Jews live in Israel than anywhere else in the world – nearly 6.2 million of the world’s total Jewish population of 13.8 million. All this came about as a result of World War I and its ramifications. The first principle of Jewish faith as elucidated by Maimonides, his first Ani Ma’amin, is “I believe with complete faith that the Creator is the Creator and ongoing Driving Force behind everything that is created. He alone brought about, brings about, and will bring about everything that happens.” From our vantage point today, as we look back 100 years to the Guns of August, we can perhaps catch a glimmer of His plan, a plan He assures us will be for the eternal good of the Jews and of all humanity.

Torah & Psychological Insights Into Relationships By Rabbi Simcha Feuerman, LCSW Chaya Feuerman, LCSW

My Spouse Is Ugly To Me (Part I) “I never found my spouse attractive. I never should have listened to…why was I so willing to allow this to happen? It was like I was sleepwalking. One minute I am dating, the next minute I’m engaged, and in what seems like a few seconds later, I am married!” It is a source of heartbreak and distress when a man or woman comes to our office, and confesses utter dissatisfaction and hopelessness about a spouse’s appearance after years of marriage and several children. While perhaps in a different era, the appearance and attractiveness of a spouse meant less, today it is incredibly important. A man who finds his wife unattractive may make every effort to keep his feelings to himself, but it gnaws away at him like a cancer. If he shares his feelings, then it becomes a source of strife and insecurity for his wife. (Note: we are using the male gender out of convenience. There are many women who are not attracted to their husbands as well.) There are various aspects and dimensions to this, depending on what phase of marriage a person is in, which may require different strategies to heal the situation. Let us look at several circumstances where this problem is experienced. • An engaged couple, where one has cold feet, not because the fiancé is unattractive in an objective sense, but because he or she doesn’t feel any attraction or chemistry. • An engaged couple, where one has cold feet because he or she finds a specific body part or feature of the other to be repulsive. • An engaged couple, where one has cold feet because he or she finds the other person unattractive. • A newly married couple where either of the above three problems manifest themselves after marriage and not before. • A couple, married for a long time, where this

problem was existed from the beginning, but it was ignored (or his or her rabbi advised to ignore it) and now it is becoming unbearable. • A married couple, where one spouse’s appearance changes negatively over time, such as a major weight gain. Cold Feet The “cold feet scenario” is a type of situation very often mishandled by well-meaning friends, relatives and rabbis. The chosson or kallah is told, “Don’t worry, it’s just nerves. You’ll get married and everything will be fine.” While of course the likely explanation for a person’s inability to find his fiancé attractive is that it is some kind of displaced fear or anxiety about marriage, it is not always the case. The stakes are too high for approximations and generalities. Sometimes a person really is not attracted and just suffered from a lack of assertiveness coupled with family pressure. This person wakes up later in the engagement, or even worse, after the wedding. At times, these situations can be repaired. After all, love and even attraction can grow. However, nobody should ever advise an engaged person to get married if he or she is not feeling attraction, unless a very thorough discussion of all the aspects has taken place, and the adviser has decades of experience, with perhaps some ruach hakodesh as well. As far as parents are concerned, a chosson or kallah cannot go into a marriage feeling coerced, pressured or uneasy about his or her choice. He or she must have a place and space to work through those emotions. Of course it is entirely possible that the panic is irrational, but a person must know that the choice to go forward is his or her own and it will be supported and respected. A broken engagement may be expensive and emotionally difficult, but divorce is even more costly and tragic! (To Be Continued)

Mind Over Manners By Mrs. Rifka Schonfeld

Overcoming Shame And Becoming Vulnerable: A Life Lesson Dr. Brene Brown spent over a decade studying shame and its effect on society. She explains that we often believe that shame is reserved for only the unfortunate few who have survived terrible traumas. But, this is not true. Shame is a universal emotion. It is something we all experience. She writes, “And, while it feels like shame hides in our darkest corners, it actually tends to lurk in all of the familiar places,

SERUV LISTING

including appearance and body image, motherhood, family, parenting, money and work, mental and physical health, addiction…” Brown asserts that the less we understand about shame and its effect on our feelings, thoughts and behaviors, the more power it can have on our lives. Once we understand the way shame works, we can figure out how to talk about it and overcome it to live

What Is Shame? According to Brown, shame is the intensely painful feeling or experience of believing we are flawed and, therefore, unworthy of acceptance and belonging. Shame is often confused with guilt and humiliation. While guilt focuses on what we’ve done (as opposed to what we would have liked to have done), shame focuses on who we are. You might feel guilty that you cheated on your diet, but you feel shame if you experience yourself as a cheater. Humiliation is another word that is often confused with shame. When you are publicly called out about an action you took, you feel humiliated if you believe that the person who rebuked you was inappropriate. Conversely, you feel ashamed if you believe that you deserved rebuke. In other words, shame is an emotion that imprisons you – labels you as “bad,” “stupid,” “fat,” and traps you into believing that these are correct assessments of your worth.

FAMILY ISSUES A Life Unexpected: Frum and Childless By Bayla Sheva Brenner “. . . and the childless one should not say, ‘Look, I am a shriveled tree.’ For this is what Hashem said to the barren ones who observe My Sabbaths and choose what I desire and hold tightly onto My covenant: In My house and within My walls I will give to them a place of honor and renown, which is better than sons and daughters. I will give them eternal renown, which will never be expired” (Isaiah 56:3-5). Even though I married later in life, I anticipated having children. I still can’t believe it’s not going to happen. I wasn’t prepared for this. In the child-centered frum world, a childless woman comes face to face every day with reminders of what she lacks — at every school bus stop, supermarket, clothing store, shul, shiur, simchah; in every Jewish newspaper, every magazine and inevitably, every conversation. I longed to speak to others like myself — at once fully connected to the frum community, and galaxies apart. I networked, seeking childless women who had passed the point of trying to conceive. Potential contacts expressed reluctance about approaching the childless friend, neighbor or aunt. They said it was a “touchy” subject. Nevertheless, several women came forward to speak about their journeys. The majority of them chose to remain anonymous. The reasons for their inability to bear children varied. Either they married late or had medical issues. Some experienced failed adoptions; for others, such a route wasn’t an option. Their common bond was their pain and the hard-won wisdom born from living without that which one wants most. “Since I was very young, I dreamt of having ten kids,” says Bracha Melzer (her real name), in her sixties and living in Brooklyn. “Hashem decided that would not be my path. As difficult as it is to accept, ‘no’ is a full sentence.” Like many of us, Bracha sought medical help and prayed; like all of us, she cried. She says that letting go of the hope of ever having children proved the hardest part. For Chana, fifty-four, married thirty years and the daughter of a Holocaust survivor who lost most of his family, the hardest part was relinquishing the expectation of continuing the family line. “It was really devastating for me,” says Chana, the only woman in her small Jewish community without children. The sense of urgency hit some of the women while they were still single. “[As I got older,] my dates would always want to know if I could have children,” says Tziporah, a Brooklyn therapist in her sixties who married in her late forties. “I felt shame associated with it. . . Although I’m no longer ashamed of what Hashem has decided for me,” she says, “I still dream about babies.” Finding Ways To Create Life If frum society defines motherhood as the essence of a Jewish woman’s identity, then who is she without a family to raise? It’s a question we ask ourselves constantly. We have to. Our lives don’t include the thrill of due dates, feeling a baby’s first kick, birthday parties, PTA, bar/bat mitzvot, visiting day, high school plays, chatunot and grandchildren. We have to consciously construct our days — and our nachat. In lieu of the daily demands of motherhood, we experience an unremitting clamor for meaning. And irrespective of what our Plan B is, it has to fill us body and soul, in a way that only something as eternal as giving to others can. The women I spoke with contribute generously to the community as educators, doctors, therapists, life-coaches or youth group leaders. No matter how rewarding the work, at the end of the day, these women remain childless. Keeping one’s spirits up

takes continuous effort, coping tools and a lot of spiritual creativity. Although she finds her job as a kindergarten teacher highly gratifying, Yidis, fifty-three and living in New England, admits she struggles every day to stay afloat. “I keep myself very busy,” she says. “Otherwise, I’m smack in the middle of the yetzer hara’s playground. When I find I’m going down the wrong path, I ask myself, ‘What’s my mission now, at this very moment?’” One of those trying moments led to a life-changing brainstorm. Fifteen summers ago, Yidis gazed outside her window to find a large assembly of neighbors, all mothers, on lawn chairs happily chatting as their children played. “I thought to myself, ‘Yidis, you have two choices: you can either go insane or you can do something productive,’” she relates. She chose the latter, launching a Torah learning center for secular and newly frum Jewish women. “You have to pour the angst into something else,” says Yidis. Bracha “refused to wallow in the pain.” A certified life-coach, she’s also an advocate and group leader for Sister to Sister (a resource and support network for frum single mothers and their children), and she volunteers for an organization that assists parents of children with learning challenges. “I pleaded with Hashem that I should be able to really enjoy children,” she says, “to listen to them, laugh with them, be able to call friends and ask how their children are doing. It takes work, but children are part and parcel of the world, and I don’t want to be shut out of that experience.” Unlike our parental peers, we need to actively seek out opportunities to express our mothering instincts. The childless Jewish woman’s need to nurture finds its way to receptive hearts of children of all ages. “My husband is the ‘candy man’ at our shul,” says Sarah, an Internet marketer in her sixties, married for twenty-three years and living on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. “So, I’m Mrs. Candy Man. The kids come in droves. They get upset when we’re away.” Over the years, the couple has hosted scores of grateful single men and women for Shabbat. “We’re well-known in the community for taking people in at the last minute,” says Sarah, who was single for many years. “No one should eat alone.” “I learned from a rebbetzin that there are many ways women can give to the world,” says Tziporah. “[One primary way for me to do so is through] my relationship with my husband. I’ve watched him develop and I feel our love for each other grow. That’s the foundation of my life.” Lessons in Sensitivity Women love to talk about their lives. If they are parents, they talk about their children — incessantly. “It’s not that they are doing it to hurt anyone,” says Chana. “People just don’t take that extra step to stop and think, ‘If I say this, how is it going to affect the next person?’ I just try to listen and push my pain aside.” Leah, a physician and Torah teacher living on the West Coast, finds certain communal gatherings challenging. “A few weeks ago, at our Friday night Tehillim group, someone was kvelling about her large family. The following week, someone else went on and on about a new grandchild. I want to hear about people’s children and grandchildren, but when the gushing goes overboard, it gets very difficult.” Chatunot and bar mitzvot present a particularly uncomfortable social venue for the childless. Caught up in the life-cycle celebration, mothers around each table launch into conversations about pregnancies, schools, seminaries and shidduchim, oblivious to the childless seated among them. “When I find I can’t turn the conversation around, I get up and

dance with the children,” says Bracha. “One time I gave one of the little girls a hug and she asked if I had a boo-boo; she felt a tear on my cheek. I said I had something in my eye. I don’t think I fooled her.” Many women turn these trying experiences into lessons in sensitivity. As with any person outside of what the frum society deems the norm, the childless woman learns, albeit the hard way, to become more considerate of other people’s vulnerabilities. “When I’m with friends who are single, I’m careful not to say ‘my husband,’” relates Bracha. “I say his name instead. I think it’s less hurtful.” Yom Tov Without Children Every year before Pesach, Chana pleads with Hashem, “Please don’t let us be alone for Sedarim.” Inevitably, they’re invited out; she finds that it’s a mixed blessing. “Every time we go to someone else’s home, I see them with their large families, together for all the yamim tovim; I get such pangs,” she laments. “I will never have that.” On Simchat Torah, while mothers watch their children dancing with their fathers, for the childless woman, it can feel heartbreakingly lonely in the women’s section. “At Purim events, parents and kids get together and I feel like I have no reason to be there,” says Chana. When Pesach comes around, Sarah and her husband opt for programs overseas. They’ve been to Sicily, Sardinia and Puerto Rico and Croatia — among other locations. “We meet a lot of people, hear great Torah lectures.” Others prefer to stay home. “We have a full yom tov table both nights,” says Dassi, an attorney in her fifties living in Manhattan. “Our guests ask the Four Questions in different languages. You can create a whole new way of enjoying the holiday.” Bracha and her husband agree; they invite Russian immigrants and those without spouses to their Sedarim. Sharing the Wisdom As with any chronic “have-not” situation, childlessness could easily thrust women into victim mode. Some choose to see it as an opportunity to exercise their gratitude muscles. Adina Fischlewitz (her real name), a former art teacher from Queens, New York, decided to shift her focus from what she lacked to what she had: free time. “No one gets everything in this life. So I went for what’s most important — becoming the best me.” She attends shiurim regularly, joined a mussar vaad and launched the We Are Doing A-OK project, an initiative involving women doing acts of kindness (A.O.K.) for others in their communities. “It takes looking around you and seeing the thousands of things Hashem gives you,” she says. “You have to get into the kishkes of how blessed you are. Get to know who you are, what you can do, your limitless potential; it’s a constant avodah.” Without the busyness and distractions of parenthood, childless women often develop a heightened awareness of the passage of time. “Children help you forget that you are going to die,” says Naomi, a computer scientist from Manhattan. “You see them as a part of you that lives on. I feel like I have more of a reminder that I’m here by myself and it’s all up to me. [Consequently,] I’ve developed a sense of gratitude for just being alive every day.” Different Path/Unique Purpose A childless woman sees herself on the periphery of mainstream frum life. She was born a woman, with a woman’s nature and inclinations, so why does her life look so different from most of her peers? “I don’t know things that other women know,” says Tziporah. “That is probably the most challenging part — not having any idea of what it means to have [a child] grow inside of you, watching him or her grow up and later separate from you. That’s a

FAMILY ISSUES Chronicles of Crisis IN OUR COMMUNITIES Give Peace A Chance: It’s A Venture Worth The Gamble Dear Rachel, Regarding the letter from the father who doesn’t have contact with his daughters (Chronicles, July 25), I think there might be another side to this story. While you are correct in saying that parents should never make the children pawns in their ongoing battle, many times it’s a parent who causes the child to turn against him or her. I have known cases where a parent uses the visits with the child to constantly bad-mouth the other parent. Even when the child is uncomfortable and asks the parent to stop, the hurtful lashon hora continues to assail the youngster. Is it then any wonder that when this child is older he or she no longer wants to have anything to do with that parent? And while you are absolutely correct about the mitzvah of Kibbud Av v’Em, when unable to respect a parent, we are advised to move away from him or her so that we do not violate that commandment. Perhaps real justice is on the side of the father, in which case your answer is appropriate, but perhaps it is the actions of the father himself that has distanced his children - in which case he should do a cheshbon ha’nefesh and the children should be commended for finding a way not to be in violation of the commandment. Seen Both Sides of the Coin

Dear Seen, All sorts of scenarios involving domestic unrest and upheaval are sadly a part of our existence, and far be it from us to judge who deserves and who does not deserve to be hurt. Moreover, the father who wrote the letter in the column you refer to indicated that he hasn’t had any communication with his daughter since he divorced her mom and the child was twelve. This would have placed him in an unlikely position to influence his daughter one way or another. If anything, it seems more plausible that her mother whom she lived with would have had the chance to sway the children against their father. Whether that actually happened or not is anyone’s guess, but it is long in the past and the child, now a grown woman, seems to be denying herself the chance to re-acquaint herself with her father and to form her own opinion of him. While a young child cannot be blamed for falling under the influence of a parent, as an adult he or she should be mature and astute enough to ascertain that a feuding husband and wife who didn’t see eye to eye on anything could have easily – consciously or unconsciously – conveyed their animosity for one another to their hapless children. In Yiddish there is a saying – einredenish is ehrger vi a krenk (delusion is worse than an illness).

Brenner Continued from p.F2 huge part of the human experience that I don’t know anything about . . . It makes me feel not quite part of the human race.” While vacationing with her husband in Maine, Yidis caught a powerful glimpse of the childless woman’s unique role. We were out in a boat. The tour guide pointed out a black bird, a cormorant. It looked awfully silly standing on a rock with its arms [spread] out, airing out its wings, like it was airing out its underarms. He explained the cormorant is different from other birds; the feathers are not as water resistant as [those of] other birds. Because of that, it can dive very, very deep. Because it has a heavier structure [denser bones than most other birds], it’s not able to fly as high as other birds; it can only fly over the surface of the water. I thought, “What if this cormorant spent its days looking up at the other birds and thinking: ‘Boy, I can’t fly like that. Look at them soaring and swirling in the upper skies, having a blast. What happened to me?’” If he were to spend his days like that, he’d be one miserable cormorant. But, if he were to say to himself, “Hashem gave me this particular ability to go deeper than any other bird, to go way beneath the surface and to bring up things that no other creature can,” he would have a completely different perspective. A smart cormorant thinks about the gifts God gave him. Not assigned the typical job description of a frum woman, we have to ask God what He wants from us every day, and in every situation. My most intense “God-what-do-you-want-fromme?” moments arise at britot, bar mitzvot and chatunot. It requires Herculean effort to accept my feelings of jealousy and loss, while sharing in the simchah of other families building Klal Yisrael. I fo-

cus on the spiritual reality behind my tug-of-war. Here’s my golden opportunity to ace a nisayon and break through to my higher self. I don’t always succeed; the battle continues. As a family therapist, Tziporah sees how parents who seem to “have it all” also need to consciously work each day on becoming the people they are meant to become. “So you have a large family, a normal Jewish life. Meanwhile one of the children is in trouble at school and your husband cannot help but scream at the kid,” says Tziporah. “We’re all here to maximize who we are.” Sometimes it takes a childless woman to help mothers appreciate their blessings. Zehava is a Brooklyn-based artist in her sixties, originally from the Southwest. One day, she stopped by a local pizza shop for a midday bite. She smiled as she noticed a young mother enter with her fouryear-old daughter in tow. Her expression quickly changed as the mother plopped her daughter down and shoved a slice of pizza in front of her, all the while yammering on her cell phone. “The poor girl kept looking up at her mother, then nibbling at her pizza,” says Zehava. She saw another mother walk in with four children and sit at a nearby table. This mother interacted with each of her children, asking them what they wanted, telling them stories and eliciting laughter. “The other girl stared at those kids the entire time,” says Zehava, “like, ‘why can’t I have that?’ Before I left, I went over to the woman on the cell phone and said, ‘Excuse me, I couldn’t help but observe that the entire time you were here with your daughter, you didn’t say one word to her. If you don’t start paying more attention to her, she’s going to need therapy.’ I was rude to her; I was so annoyed. It’s a zechut to have children. I want to put it out there: cherish the gifts you have.” Leaving Their Mark As a ba’alat teshuvah born to Holocaust survi-

These girls seem to be suffering from such delusion, to the point of foolishly denying themselves the gratification that comes from family unity. If she (the older) hasn’t seen or spoken to her father since she was a child, she can’t possibly know him well enough to dislike him or to have come to any rational conclusion about him. The least she can do is give him a fair chance to prove himself worthy of being accepted into the family as a father and grandfather figure. As we all know, there are two sides (often three) to every argument. Must the father resort to heaping blame on his ex to settle the score and to curry favor with his children? This father does not wish to go that route; the “blame game” is distasteful to him (as it should be), though he’d surely have plenty to say from his standpoint. Parents/grandparents who are finding themselves tragically shut out of their children’s lives and who have attempted verbal reasoning to no avail might perhaps consider writing a letter to their children. The written word is far more effective than verbal communication, and a heartfelt letter can speak volumes. Face to face physical confrontation, on the other hand, has the potential of arousing emotions that can rush to the fore and are often difficult to keep in check. As a result, words spoken in anger can worsen matters. Again, whether one is or is not deserving of his or her painful experience, it is certainly not up to our children to judge whether their derision is coming to us or not. In any case, the adult child who deliberately causes a parent to cry out in pain will be held culpable and accountable for the hurt he or she inflicts on that parent. Man has an everlasting goal: to seek out peace and pursue it... bakesh shalom ve’radfeihu... Without shalom (peace) there can be no shleimus (wholeness). Let us each pray to Hashem for peace and family harmony and bear in mind that our All-Merciful Creator can effect a positive change in the blink of an eye.

vors, I’m baffled and saddened. Instead of reconnecting the shattered link to thousands of years of mesorah and mesirut nefesh, it all ends with me. The majority of the women I interviewed named this as the most difficult aspect of their nisayon. “There are different kinds of pain,” says Bracha. “The kind when you’re married and it doesn’t work out, when you lose a child or when you are [an older single] waiting to get married. For me, [the deepest pain] was the realization that I was the end of the line; there would be no one to carry on after me.” Arianna, in her fifties, asks, “Who will say Kaddish and Yizkor [for me]?” Although we may not see the fruits of our labors in the obvious ways that mothers do, we continue to give birth to positivity despite our seeming void. During the throes of infertility treatments, Bracha consulted with the Bostoner Rebbe. Sensing his compassion, she broke down crying. “He actually laughed,” she says. “I asked him why he was laughing. He said, ‘You have more children than you know how to count.’” His words confused her at the time. Now, she’s no longer confused. “Hashem wants me to make an impact on this world in the best way I know how,” says Bracha. “If someone does a positive act because of my example, then I had a baby. That person who received the kindness is going to take it forward forever. Like the Rebbe said, I have more children than I know how to count.” Ultimately, after 120 years, whether we’ve had children or not, we all leave this world with only ourselves and the relationship we’ve forged with Hashem. “This journey has drawn me closer to God,” says Tziporah. “The more I trust Him and open up to His will, the less I feel like He’s angry with me and rejecting me. I know that whatever challenge I have today, that’s the one I’m supposed to meet. When I remember to turn it over to Him, the day goes beautifully.”

to recognize the negative effects of shame on your life and to transform yourself in an effort to control it. Courage. Shame is an emotion that tunnels inside of us – it cannot survive being shared. The most damaging thing we can do when we experience shame is to bury the story and hide it from everyone around us. Instead, it’s important to have courage and share the story with someone you trust. The root of the word courage actually comes from the Latin word for heart (cor). In that sense, courage can be about sharing your heart with someone else. Compassion. While it is important to share the story, it is equally (if not more) essential to share the shame story with the right person. There are multiple ways that well-intentioned friends can react that will not help assuage the shame. Some of those responses could be: anger at the person who did this to you, feeling bad for you, or wanting to make it better without really listening. Look for a friend who will say, “Oh, that sounds terrible. I am so sorry. I’ve definitely been there. I can’t stand when I feel that way.” Connection. Through your courage in sharing and your friend’s compassion, you have created a powerful connection to somebody outside of your shame. You can now feel loved and accepted – which are the true antidotes to shameful thoughts. Remember, the definition of shame is “the intensely painful feeling or experience of believing we are flawed and therefore unworthy of acceptance and belonging.” Once you forge a connection, you feel you belong. Vulnerability: The Flipside of Shame After spending so much time studying shame and its negative effects, Brown wanted to study its flipside. As she investigated people who lived wholehearted lives, she discovered that the common denominator among all of those who had overcome shame was vulnerability. According to Brown, vulnerability is “the core, the heart, the center, of meaningful human experiences.” She references Theodore Roosevelt’s speech

in order to explain what she means. President Roosevelt said, “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs.... [And] if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” How does this connect to vulnerability and happiness? She posits that through her research she has seen time and again that those who live happy lives allow themselves to be vulnerable. Vulnerability is about showing up in the arena, getting dusty and sweaty, and not about winning or losing. Brown illustrates this idea through a story about a man she once interviewed. He once told her, “My whole life, I never got too excited about anything. That way if things didn’t work out, I wasn’t devastated, and if they did, it was a pleasant surprise.” And when this man was in his 60s, his wife of 40 years was killed in a car accident. He told me, “The second I realized she was gone, I knew I should have leaned harder into those moments of joy. Because not doing so did not protect me from what I feel now.” Instead of loving the moment and exposing himself, instead of being vulnerable, this man lost out on moments of joy. Vulnerability and Parenting Brown asserts that we can be better parents when we allow ourselves to be vulnerable. She tells her children (and herself), “Above all else, I want you to know that you are loved and lovable. You will learn this from my words and actions.... You will learn that you are worthy of love, belonging, and joy every time you see me practice self-compassion and embrace my own imperfections.” Through an embrace of our vulnerability, we can help our children feel a sense of love and belonging – perhaps the most important elements of leading a happy life.

Bliss, Loss, Under Fire, Peace? My Summer in Israel

The End Of Summer

The Perturbed Educator Responds


Dear Editor, I find the recent column by Dr. Yael Respler (Conversational Lessons, 6-20) and the letter by Harold Marks (Inbox, 7-25) deeply disturbing. The suggestions lower the marital relationship to one of competition and gamesmanship, presuming that people see their spouses as constantly under review for potential exchange, foster a lack of communication among spouses and friends, and encourage husbands and wives to manage their relationships out of fear that any positive opinion of a member of the opposite sex will drive spouses away. M.G. states that competition “has no place in marriage” and yet suggests that wives limit praise of other women due to the competitive threat that those women might represent in the shallowest of relationships. M.G. counsels that a wife be careful when speaking of a single friend or of another friend’s weight loss. Although sometimes maintaining shalom bayit may require holding back some thoughts (e.g. God’s withholding details from Avraham about what Sarah said, per Rashi Gen. 18:13), this is the exception, not the rule. Full description of the single friend might help find the right shidduch and might also show a wife’s sense of security with her husband. A woman’s comment about someone else’s appearance might be a helpful signal to her husband to provide emotional support for his wife, who may be struggling with her self-image. A spouse should not have to walk on pins and needles in conversation with his or her spouse, who should be a trusted confidant. Undermining robust communication can do far more damage than should result from the favorable mention of a friend. M.G. suggests that a woman not share her exhaustion with her sister because the sister might share what her own husband has done to help. The supposed “lesson” is not to start this dialogue, lest you imagine

that your sister’s husband cares more. Once again, the suggestion to close off dialogue is alarming. Can a woman not seek her sister’s support and advice in regard to life’s challenges? Besides, learning ways that one’s spouse might provide additional support hardly seems to be a negative result for either husband or wife. The column also promotes a path to painfully insecure relationships. Dr. Yael suggests that a wife avoid interactions that include her husband and anyone who might be attractive to him. The fact is that there will always be someone whose surface beauty outpaces one’s spouse’s (my wife is a notable exception). If simple interactions with members of the opposite sex lead a spouse to think he or she would be better off with another person, the solution is not to avoid such interactions but to build a more meaningful understanding of marriage, which should not be compared to relatively superficial interactions with people over Shabbat lunch or even more extended social interactions. Additionally, avoiding the panoply of potential social interactions, including gatherings with mixed groups, could lead to the kind of isolation and boredom that can threaten a relationship. Marks’s response notes that there is always competition and therefore husbands and wives should try to remain attractive to each other. Indeed, it is important to remain attractive to one’s spouse, and “what’s out there” might affect what our spouses find attractive. But our interest in attracting our spouses should be a matter of keeping a relationship strong, not about insecurely looking over our shoulders. Marks states that “a husband and wife have to be fools not to understand that competition is always close by.” No, they just have to have reasonable expectations for a committed relationship, and to be secure enough not to believe that their partners are always shopping around. It is that kind of relationship that will allow for healthy interaction between spouses and among spouses and their peers.

T O R A H & H A S H K A FA Who does not want to get close to Hashem? Yet, how do we do that?

YESHIVA NER BARUCH - PTI BY RABBI BORUCH BODENHEIM

The Way To Cling In Parshas Re’eh, we have the mitzvah of “Uvo Tidbakun – and to Him you shall cleave” (13:5) How does one cling to Hashem? Rashi quotes the Gemara (Sotah 14a) that asks: Is it possible to follow G-d who is infinite? The Gemara explains that cleaving means you shall emulate Hashem’s qualities – just as Hashem clothed Adam and Chava, so too we should ensure people have clothes to wear. Just as Hashem visited Avraham Avinu when he was sick after his bris milah, so too we should visit the sick.  The way to cleave to Hashem is by incorporating the characteristics of the Almighty in our daily life, to act with compassion and to care for others. Why does Rashi use this Gemara to explain this mitzvah of clinging to Hashem when clearly the Gemara is talking about the mitzvah of following Hashem?  Rav Aharon Kotler zt”l (late Rosh Yeshiva and founder of Beis Medrash Govoha – Lakewood Yeshiva) explains that Rashi is giving us an entirely new

perspective on caring for others. “Kirvas Elokim li Tov – Closeness to G-d is what’s good for me,” says Dovid HaMelech.   Think about it. Who does not want to get close to Hashem? Yet, how do we do that? Initially, we might think of tefillah or Torah study, which is true.  When it comes to chesed, we view it as a very important mitzvah, but not a mitzvah that unites us with Hashem Himself, as Torah and tefillah help us do.   Yet, from this Rashi, we see that simple mundane acts of caring for others constitutes clinging to Hashem… literally.  Even small talk that makes a person feel important and cared for, picking up an item at a supermarket for your neighbor, visiting the sick or listening to what’s bothering someone – all of these are clinging to Hashem Himself, just as much as Torah and tefillah. This is precisely why Rashi quotes

this Gemara on the mitzvah of clinging to Hashem, because by performing the mitzvah of following in Hashem’s ways, we are then clinging to Him. As we are now entering the month of Elul, I am reminded of a story.   It was the eve of Yom Kippur. The whole town was in shul.  The Rav concluded his impassioned plea for everyone to do teshuva, and the Chazzan was ready to start Kol Nidrei. Unexpectedly, the Rav turned to his shamash and says, “Come with me.” They left shul and walked until they reached a home at the far end of town. The Rav knocked on the door. A weak and ill-looking 12 year-old girl answered the door.   “How do you feel?” asked the Rav.   “I feel weak,” said the girl.   “Refuah Shleimah. I want to wish you a Gmar Chasima Tova.  Tell me… did you get a new dress for Yom Tov?” asked the Rav.  “I did, but my weakness is so on my mind I can’t focus on the dress,” replied the girl.   “Can you tell me what your dress looks

like?” asked the Rav. “Well, it’s pink and has ribbons on the sleeves ...” The girl continued to describe the dress in great detail. Incredibly, the girl’s spirits seemed to perk up, and color started coming back to her cheeks.  “I can even show it to you,” added the girl.  She then ran to get the dress and showed it to the Rav. At this point, the girl looked healthy and well.   “It’s beautiful… the perfect Yom Tov dress!  I want to wish you a sweet year,” and with that the Rav left back to shul.   Small talk. Showing interest. A little chesed. That’s cleaving to Hashem. Rabbi Baruch Bodenheim is the Associate Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshiva Passaic Torah

PARSHA PERSPECTIVES BY RABBI DR. DAVID HERTZBERG

Parshat Re’eh

O

n June 18, 1940 Winston Churchill delivered one of his most famous speeches. France was on the verge of surrendering to Germany and Churchill needed to prepare England for the prospect of soldiering on alone against the Nazis. With the hundreds of thousands of casualties suffered during World War I still on everyone’s mind, Churchill needed to provide meaning, purpose and inspiration for the heavy price to be paid and burden to be borne in the upcoming war. To this end, to quote President Kennedy, he “mobilized the English language and sent it into battle.” These are the words with which Churchill inspired his fellow citizens: What General Weygand called the Battle of France is over. I expect that the Battle of Britain is about to begin. Upon it depends our own British life, and the long continuity of our institutions and our Empires. The whole fury and might of the enemy must very soon be turned on us. Hitler knows that he will have to break us in this island or lose the war. If we can stand up to him, all Europe may be free and the life of the world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands. But if we fall, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new dark age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science. Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that, if the British Empire and its Commonwealth last for a thousand years, men will still say, “This was their finest hour.” With these stirring words Churchill helped inspire his nation to fight on. He successfully provided existential purpose to the upcoming conflict. While nobody wants to suffer, people will more readily do so when they understand why it is necessary. General Eisenhower also understood

this concept. On the eve of the invasion of France, in June 1944, Eisenhower wrote a message for all the military personnel participating in the battle. You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brave Allies and brothers-in-arms on other Fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over the oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world. Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle hardened. He will fight savagely. But this is the year 1944! Much has happened since the Nazi triumphs of 1940-41.

Eisenhower understood that motivated men will fight much harder and longer than unmotivated men. The United Nations have inflicted upon the Germans great defeats, in open battle, man-toman. Our air offensive has seriously reduced their strength in the air and their capacity to wage war on the ground. Our Home Fronts have given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons and munitions of war, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained fighting men. The tide has turned! The free men of the world are marching together to Victory! Good luck! And let us beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble

undertaking. Though Eisenhower had to be very careful, for security reasons, what information he put in the message, he managed to convey the historic significance of what the soldiers, sailors and airmen were about to do. Like Churchill, Eisenhower understood that motivated men will fight much harder and longer than unmotivated men. Successful leaders have always ensured that their troops knew the answer to the question: “Why are we fighting?” The importance of people understanding what they are doing and being committed to the underlying rationale of their cause is relevant in all spheres of life. The Alshich points this out in a very incisive observation in this week’s parsha. With regard to Maaser Sheini the Torah states (14:24): “If the path shall become too long

the pasuk. When in fact does, “the path become too long for you, so that you will not be able to bear the burden”? When the person perceives the path to Yerushalayim as too far. When a person doesn’t understand why he has to go somewhere, even a fifteen-minute car ride seems too long. However, if it is somewhere he wants to go, then even a twelve-hour flight is bearable. Although the Torah provides an option for such a person, the underlying issue is that the person doesn’t understand the importance of the mitzvah. Thus, to encourage this person to come happily to Yerushalayim, we must enlighten him as to the importance and meaningfulness of the endeavor. A group of people once approached the Chofetz Chaim asking him to convince one of their neighbors to close his factory on Shabbat. They began to instruct the Chofetz Chaim in the inner workings of the person’s business so that when the factory owner claimed he couldn’t With these stirring close his factory for certain business words Churchill and production reasons the Chofetz Chaim would be able to counter helped inspire his his arguments. The Chofetz Chaim explained that he would certainly nation to fight on. implore the man to close his business on Shabbat, but would take a different for you, so that you will not be able to bear approach. The man, he explained, knows the burden, for the place Hashem your his business. There’s nothing the Chofetz G-d will choose to place His name there Chaim could say in this regard that could will be far from you, for G-d has blessed really convince him to close. But the real you.” The Torah acknowledges that un- issue is not the business, it’s that he does der certain circumstances it might be too not understand the importance and value difficult to transport all of the produce of Shabbat. Therefore, the Chofetz Chaim designated as maaser to Yerushalayim. In said he would focus on inspiring the perthat case a person is allowed to redeem the son as to the value of Shabbat. If the person produce for money, and bring the money is convinced of that, then all the business to Yerushalayim, and eat the food purchased issues will resolve themselves. with this money.

ADVICE & OPINION

The Perturbed Educator Responds Dear Dr. Respler: I am the letter writer of last week’s column, Attaining Both Torah U’madda. While I appreciate your response, this issue is not about being judgmental but rather it is simply telling it like it is. If no one is blunt in his or her assessment, nothing will improve. It baffles me that in America, yeshivot can get away with having no secular curriculums in high schools. And if the facts are trivialized in your column, we are not doing anyone a favor. My letter was not meant to hurt people; it was intended to open people’s eyes. After all, we are talking about our futures. After a certain number of generations (and that certain number may be upon us soon), the resources of parents and grandparents will run out. When that happens, who will support these families if the husband does not have much of an education (or any at all) or a job? We learn that Torah u’madda are connected. The husband should practice both, for with so many children in many families it is beyond unfair to put the onus of earning a parnassah squarely on the wife’s shoulders. A Perturbed Educator

Dear Dr. Respler: I love my husband dearly. He is very involved in our community, runs a large business, and is a great father and husband. I always admired his ability to prioritize his time and the important things in life. When he arrives home, he shuts off his cell phone and focuses exclusively on our family. Since the war in Israel, though, my husband has become obsessed with his phone and the war’s latest developments. I also try to keep

Dear Reader: Since your husband was very responsible in shutting off his phone before Operation Protective Edge, chances are good that his current behavior is probably just a passing phase. Keep in mind that due to

Dear Dr. Yael BY YAEL RESPLER, PH.D. WITH ORIT RESPLER-HERMAN, PSY.D. Dear Perturbed Educator: I don’t know how any high school in America gets away without teaching an English curriculum. You are right in your belief that a disturbing issue is taking place. We now have a generation of young people who want to be supported in their learning, and although this may be a beautiful concept in theory you are right in questioning how this policy will make for a better future. The fact is that other people’s money dries up at some point. While I do not have the answer to this growing problem, there are supporters of both the concept of Torah u’madda and that of learning full-time to sustain the world. The issue arises when a generation produces mostly learners and not enough learners/earners. However, I know of many young men who were once learners and who hold respectable jobs as learners/

Unlike some friends whose husbands obsess with their phones, I always felt fortunate that my husband had his priorities in order. I don’t know how to handle this situation. Even though he agrees with me after we’ve discussed this situation, he continues to be obsessed with events in Israel, causing a disconnect with our family. Do you think he is now addicted to his phone or is this just a passing situation due to the terrible situation in Eretz Yisrael? I welcome your feedback. A Reader

so many people’s love for Klal and Eretz Yisrael, they have become addicted to the news and are acting very much like your husband. Please tell your husband that while you are also very worried about the mat-

earners. These young men, though, probably received better secular educations than the ones you’ve described and are probably not suffering from the learning difficulties that you’ve witnessed. This issue might become more complicated if a new generation arises whereby fewer opportunities exist for the would-be learner/earner. If this happens, an economic crisis in the frum world could ensue. Even as I hope that your letter helps readers understand the importance of receiving a secular education, this may not be the goal of the community you are referring to. Nonetheless, the goal of guiding our children and other Jews b’derech haTorah must continue unabated. Hopefully, the level of ahavas Yisrael will rise as a result. I hope this response better serves you and Jewish Press readers. Hatzlachah!

You don’t seem to have much to worry about since you note that your husband has always been attuned to your family’s needs. Hatzlachah to you, and may we merit shalom and the coming of Mashiach soon!

Mid-August And The Natives Are Restless

S

o here we are, just past the mid-August mark and things are somewhat strung out.

The bungalow colony chevra have become a bit knit-picky and judgmental and the lawn circles have become smaller and cliquier. The all-accepting environment of early July has dissipated and people are looking at each other a bit askew.  I guess it’s all that close and cloyingly in-yourface togetherness that has become too much as the summer winds down and you know you won’t have to see “those people” until next year – or maybe ever again!  Little pockets of discontent erupt amongst the ladies who knit, crochet, needlepoint or whatever, that force once close friends Dana Mase is the Executive Director and Founder of Ride Kind Therapeutic Riding, located in Rockland County NY.

Monticello’s Walmart figuratively lives for this time of year, when they clean up in the clothes department, the kosher aisle and anything else we use from them that’s not nailed down or hammered to the walls.  So the Motzoei Shabbos activity of leisurely perusing through the aisles now becomes a race for who can get what first.  Even the kids are feeling it.  They’re more edgy, argumentative and warrior-like, possessive about their toys and things they so willingly shared with their summer friends at the beginning of the season.  It’s as if they can smell the musty classroom air that’s competing with the last sweet smells of summer.  They no longer take pleasure in rolling around in the grass, because much of the grass has taken on a course, hay-like quality, heralding the oncoming Fall.  Climbing trees losing their leaves does not hold the same jungle-like adventurous feel that climbing the heavy, lush green-leafed trees of late Spring/early Summer did.

Reaction To The Legacy We Leave

The Person Behind The Chair... And Beyond BY ANN NOVICK

I

n a recent column (August 8), we discussed the

legacy we caregivers may leave our children, especially

the young ones who grow up with an ill parent. I noted that these children often learn, despite our best efforts, to put themselves last. Below is a letter from a mother who expected her children to react in this manner, but was surprised when the exact opposite occurred. Dear Ann, I appreciated your article about the legacy we leave and the example we set for our children. I always said I would never raise my children the way my parents raised me, and I would give them a better childhood than I had. That’s not to say my parents did everything wrong, they didn’t, and I believe I passed the positive lessons along to my children. I wanted to share with you a situation I faced and how my children dealt with it. My husband/their father has a chron-

ic illness, and although it is physically not noticeable, it does affect him in other wa y s . H e has cognitive issues, brain fog, fatigue, and depression and takes a number of medications. My children are adults and out of the house for several years. They are aware of their father’s symptoms, but maybe not completely aware. We have always been straight and honest with them, never sugar-coating situations and they were aware of most crises that took place under our roof. We felt that would prepare them better for adulthood. We also taught them the importance of earning and saving money – just like our parents taught us. We taught them about charity and volunteering – good values for a child of any age. I had to be away for two weeks. I had not been away for this amount of time before and was leaving my husband to deal with remembering to lock doors, shut off the stove, eat, etc. Previous times that I had been away, at least one of my kids was still living at home and could be relied upon to double check things. Was the garage door closed when Dad left for work? Was the oven/stove turned off? Simple safety concerns that my husband could not be trusted to remember. This time I had asked both children to please check in with their dad every couple of days to make sure everything was all right, as I would have limited contact. He was not aware I asked this of them; he would have been upset that

I was not trusting him to handle things while I was away. Truth is, I didn’t trust his memory and he does sleep soundly at night because of his medication. I do not feel this is too much to ask of children. Whenever they have a “need” and require our help/advice, we are always willing to help out. During my two weeks away, I was able to text the children occasionally (my husband does not text) to relay a message to their dad from me. This meant they had to call him to relay the message. My son did as I asked and relayed the messages, but did not let me know if everything was well. He just did what I asked. My daughter did not acknowledge my text messages and did not relay them to her Dad. They are aware of his cognitive deficiencies, but perhaps since they have not been living at home for several years are not aware of how his abilities have decreased. I was disappointed in how they did not back me up in my absence. Fortunately, all was well when I arrived home. However, I have to wonder if raising them with the reality of

life’s difficulties turned them off from taking adult responsibility of their parent, or is it a lack of maturity? I thought my daughter would be a “take charge” person, and my son would be the carefree one. While the roles were reversed, neither of them really “took charge.” Maybe because the illness is invisible, they forget about the other symptoms. Perhaps when they have children of their own, their outlook on illness and care giving will be different. I am not comfortable asking them why they did not “step up” and check on things. Perhaps I was not clear as to my expectations. I do know that should the situation come up again, I will handle it differently and be more direct. Estelle M.

F E AT U R E Challenging Parenting Life Lessons From Raising An Autistic Child

Because Menachem lives in Israel, he can feel the ruach in the air.

AS TOLD TO GILA ARNOLD

Part Eight

W

hile the challenges of making aliyah with a special needs child are certainly not to be dismissed, for those who mistakenly believe that this is an automatic reason not to move to Israel, or that Israel can’t possibly have the level of services that America provides, Menachem’s father, Dan, states emphatically and passionately that the exact opposite is true. The father speaks: From the outset, I must say that I’ve never lived in the U.S. with a special needs child, so I can’t make comparisons about services here versus there. But I can say, unequivocally and whole-heartedly, that the services provided in Israel are absolutely excellent, and that we’ve always been fully satisfied with the level of care and expertise we’ve encountered. But beyond that, there are certain significant advantages to raising a special needs child in the Jewish State. My son lives and breathes Judaism. Even if he’ll never be able to be called up to the Torah, will never learn a daf Gemara or even a pasuk in Chumash, and couldn’t tell you when Shabbos comes out, Judaism is a part of his life in a way that it could never be if we were living in chutz la’Aretz. By the very nature of his disability, his primary education is experiential rather than text-based. Because Menachem lives in Israel, he can feel the ruach in the air and thereby “learn” about Pesach, Purim and Rosh Hashanah; he can go to the Kotel and to Kever Rachel and imbibe the experience of holiness. Living in our Orthodox community means that Shabbos feels different than the rest of the week when we walk outside. And for Menachem, this has the

added perk of enabling him to take walks on the quiet streets of our neighborhood, something that is too dangerous for him to do on a weekday, when there is a high risk of him darting in front of an oncoming car. Living in the Jewish State also means that everything – even public school-based special education programs – runs on a Jewish schedule. The school vacations are for Jewish holidays; no need to worry about expensive respite care for days the children have off but the parents still need to work. The food served is kosher, and the holidays and culture taught is our own. I don’t have to worry about what foreign ideas he might be exposed to while in school.* And the wonderful thing is that all this is just about free! In America, the cost of a similar Jewish, private special education program can run between $50-100,000 a year. Here, I pay about 2100 NIS ($610), and my son is given an education in a school that is fully staffed, with teachers specially trained for his needs (there are two teachers and often an assistant as well in each class of five children), plus speech therapists, occupational therapists, music therapists and a doctor on staff. Menachem is in a mamlachti dati (national religious) school, which means that they daven every day and learn Jewish-themed lessons. We also receive free transportation to the school, which has long hours (this is specifically the case for children with autism – the school hours for children with other disabilities, such as Downs syndrome, aren’t as long). He gets picked up at 6:50 in the morning, and is home at 5:30 in the afternoon. And his school, like all schools here, is six days a week, and his program runs through the summer, except for a two-week break in August, during which there are both

day camps and sleep-away camps available. Then, there are the additional benefits our government grants us: a significant monthly stipend (which is determined based on the severity of the disability) to help us pay for household help and a permit to bring in a foreign worker for that purpose; a handicapped parking permit and a discount on our car registration; additional paid sick days for me and my wife, beyond what a regular employee is entitled to; and even a government-issued card that entitles us, when we have Menachem in tow, to skip to the front of the line in places like government offices or supermarkets! While Menachem can’t speak, he is bilingual in his comprehension of English and Hebrew. (A noted difference between the two therapy approaches, as discussed in an earlier article, is that the DIR-floortime model allows for using the two languages in his therapy, as they come up naturally in his environment – i.e. English at home and Hebrew at school – whereas ABA insists on consistency throughout, so that if he is learning Hebrew commands in school, he should hear the same Hebrew at home.) Since my son was born in Israel, the bilingualism came naturally; for a special needs child making aliyah, the dual language burden, particularly past the natural age of language acquisition, is something that has to be weighed, and the proper approach to introducing the second language should be discussed with a professional. What other issues does the potential oleh need to be aware of? Well, for starters, you’ll want to make sure that your child’s diagnosis will be accepted in Israel. When dealing with cognitive disorders like the autism spectrum, definitions can get pretty fuzzy. The DSM-5 has changed the parameters of what’s considered “on the spectrum,” and it’s now harder to get a diagnosis of autism. So it’s

important to know what criteria are used in Israel to diagnose your child’s disorder. Next, check that the medications your child currently takes are covered by the National Health Fund. These medications can get quite expensive – as much as $10 a pill. If they aren’t covered, find out if there are comparable medications that are. Be aware of the timing of things here. In order to get accepted into a special education program for a given academic year, the child must receive approval from a placement committee, which involves a whole process of evaluations. Find out how early you will need to be here in order to have this taken care of before the start of the school year. One thing we have found we are missing in the services here is accessibility to alternative and cutting-edge therapies. For example, research is starting to emerge about the connection between stomach-based disorders and autism, but such therapy isn’t readily available here. There are some alternative medications we’ve had to ship from the U.S. because we couldn’t get them here. If you’re not into alternative medicine, then it isn’t such an issue, but this is something to be aware of. We have had to face the fact that living in Israel with a child like Menachem means we will never be able to go back to the U.S. to visit. Neither of us is able to handle caring for Menachem for a prolonged period on our own while the other is abroad, and we certainly couldn’t bring him on a plane. So our family visits us here instead. This is just one more life reality we’ve had to adjust to while raising our special needs son. But if we’re going to be tied down to any one location in the world, we are extremely blessed that that place is here in our homeland.

Shabbos Mevorchim Elul

e bentch Rosh Chodesh Elul on Shabbos Parshas Re’eh, Rosh Chodesh falling on Yom Shlishi and Yom Revi’i (Tuesday and Wednesday, August 26 and 27). As the summer winds down, the reality of the serious days ahead begins to sink in. The call of the shofar on the first of Elul will further wrest us from our repose, reminding us that we have serious work ahead. As we read in our machzorim on Rosh Hashanah, Hashem recalls everything – nothing is hidden from His eyes. He judges not only man, but also nations… every nation in the world. “...v’al hamedinos . . and over the nations you enact your edict – which shall succumb to sword, which to peace… which to hunger and which to sate... the dwellers within the nations – who to life and who to demise... “ In His infinite kindness, Hashem grants us a grace period of forty days beginning with Rosh Chodesh Elul and culminating in Yom Kippur. During this time we do a cheshbon ha’nefesh and express our sincere remorse for all our wrongdoings. Dear G-d… You have conferred upon woman special status at the start of each new month; every Rosh Chodesh offers us a unique opportunity to seek divine favor as reward for having stood steadfast in spurning the demands of our men to relinquish our gold jewelry for the purpose of constructing the golden calf. As I am about to bless the new month of Elul, I tremble with fright before You, for You will soon be sitting in judgment of all creation, and what am I but earth and ash like the lowly worm… I come to plead for compassion and pity, Ribbono Shel Olam, and beg You to open for us the portals of teshuvah and tefilla so that our iniquities be pardoned, so that You will inscribe us in the Book of Life on this coming Rosh Hashanah and bless us in all our undertakings.

he also personally undertook to keep the lights by the amud of his local beis medrash burning round the clock. For years on end, it was known to all that the mitzvah of maintaining the Ner Tamid belonged to Reb Shaya. Reb Shaya’s employer once had an impressive business deal to conclude with a client from a faraway land and appointed his trusted employee to travel there and conclude the transaction. Several days following his departure, the news circulated – the ship Reb Shaya had traveled on was lost at sea and was believed to have sunk to the depths of the ocean. Reb Shaya’s young widow and only child were inconsolable. The townsfolk took pity on them and looked out for their physical and emotional needs. Before long, an affluent widower was suggested as a shidduch for the poor widow who sought a heter to remarry. Her behest was declined; there were no witnesses to

Dear Father in Heaven who can see into every heart from His holy dwelling on high… cleanse me of my sins and endow me with benevolence and good-heartedness; renew my soul and imbue my spirit with resilience to withstand the temptations that come my way … so that I will abide by Your Holy Torah and mitzvos all the days of my life and the letters of Elul will transform to denote ashrei lach ve’ashrei le’nishmasach – praiseworthy is to you and praiseworthy is to your soul.

the tragedy and in the vastness of the sea it was feasible for one to swim to the safety of an island. The widow accepted the ruling with no bitterness of heart and sadly became an agunah with no relief in sight. A few months later the gabbai of Reb Pinchas Koritzer arrived to collect each family’s contribution towards the tzaddik’s wage. The gabbai’s list containing the names of whom he was to visit was kept meticulously updated; the names of those who had passed on from this world were taken out. Apparently the news of the sinking ship had not reached the ears of the dwellers of Koritz, for the gabbai soon showed up at the almanah’s door. When he announced that he had come to solicit the yearly offering from her husband, the woman stood speechless. Misunderstanding the widow’s emotions, the gabbai assumed the family

* * * As a devout chassid of the Koritzer Rebbe, Reb Shaya could always be counted on for his yearly stipend towards the support of the Rebbe’s household. Though Reb Shaya was a man of modest means, earning but a monthly wage as a wheat merchant,

was experiencing financial difficulties and offered to return at a later time. When the woman clarified that she had no husband and was in fact an agunah, the disbelieving gabbai insisted it could not be so. The holy Rebbe himself had reviewed the names on the list and had personally crossed out those who could no longer give tzedakkah in this world. As the Koritzer Rebbe had left the name intact, it was a sure sign that Reb Shaya was alive and well. “Why then has he not returned home to me?” asked the bewildered woman. The gabbai advised her to ask the Rebbe himself. The almanah wasted no time and set off for Koritz, to personally unburden her heavy heart to the tzaddik. When she ended her tale of woe, Reb Pinchas Koritzer assured her that if her husband’s name was on the list, he was among the living somewhere in this world and advised her to be patient for it was not always simple for one rescued at sea to return quickly. It was another several weeks before someone came to the home of Reb Shaya to gently break the good news to his wife: her husband would soon be coming home to her. Upon his jubilant return, Reb Shaya had an amazing story to tell. As the ship began to submerge, he had reasoned that he’d have nothing to lose by diving into the sea. Reb Shaya began to swim without holding out much hope for survival – when suddenly he spotted a large barrel of olive oil “swimming” towards him. Reb Shaya was able to cling to the barrel and to life and allowed himself to be carried along, until he found himself on dry land – a small island with few inhabitants. Here he awaited the boat that he was told visited the island once a year, to be able to make his way back home. As Reb Shaya expressed his hakoras hatov for G-d’s great miracle, he had no doubt that the barrel of olive oil was sent to him due to the mitzvah he had undertaken to consistently provide light for the shul with shemen zayis. Reb Pinchas of Koritz ben R’ Avraham Abba Shapiro was niftar on the 10th day of Elul.

Like the one you used to make.” I hold out the foilwrapped roll but she does not take. She does not see. “ Yo u r e m e m b e r , Savta?” my words trip over each other. “You made this delicious cookie-dough roll with chocolate oozing out from all sides. I loved it, Savta. And you knew I loved it, and always made sure to give me some. You even sent me a roll to camp once, remember?” Her head tilts further to the side. “And it was so crispy. Mine never comes out quite the same. Savta.” A wild inspiration strikes. “Maybe you’ll teach me how to make the chocolate roll? Then I could bring you one like you’d always made.” A guffaw. Savta, laughing? “So Savta, when will you teach me? Maybe now?” I’m a little kid again. Whining. But I want to. I need to. I need my Savta back. “Hmmph.” I open the foil and take out a slice. “Please have some, Savta.” A small smile. Savta murmurs a bracha and chews half a slice of chocolate roll. Brown streams trickle down her chin. “Is it good?” “Very good.” The second half-slice falls from her hand. It’s been enough for her. I take Savta’s hand again. “Who are you?” “Malka!” Now it’s a sob. “Your granddaughter, Rochel’s daughter!” “Rochel?”

“Your daughter!” Savta, your daughter! You cried when you gave birth to her, you struggled to raise her, you cried again when you married her off – and you don’t know her name? She shrugs ever so slightly, and then sighs in exhaustion. Poor Savta. Does she really want to say, “Just leave me alone?” “You know, Savta? I loved to come to you Shabbos afternoons. It was always so lively and fun, with all the cousins visiting and the nosh you gave us. The peanut chews – those were the best. You always knew how to make us happy.” A wisp of a smile. “I love you, Savta.” The smile grows. Am I talking to her neshamah now? “So now you understand me, Savta?” I can’t resist. Another smile. I take her hand again. It is limp and bony. But still it lifts up and strokes my hand, like it used to. I brush away a tear and move Savta’s wheelchair closer to me. I put one arm around her shoulder and the other around Chaya’s and sing slowly, thoughtfully. Savta hums along. “Im eshkachech Yerushalayim…” How can I forget you, O Jerusalem? How can you forget me, Savta? How can you forget a long, beautiful life? How can you forget years of struggle and triumph? How can you forget precious moments with your family? Are your memories not in your bones, in your very flesh? If they are not, then where are they? They must be in your soul – the soul that will never forget, for eternity.

Olam Chesed Yibaneh

everything leaves traces.

BY ANN GOLDBERG My newly married daughter and her husband were in a shop in Safed during the summer. While paying for their purchases they were discussing where they would pitch their tent for the night. The shopkeeper looked up and said, “You don’t want to sleep in a tent. It can get quite cold here at night. Come back with me to our house, we’ve got a spare room.” When my daughter told me this story and of the pleasant evening they spent with the family and the lovely room they slept in, I couldn’t help but smile. She takes this kind of chesed for granted. After all, she was born here and that’s the way we look after each other in our homeland. I thought back to my first similar experience. I was even younger than she is, only eighteen years old, straight out of school in Britain. I had come to Israel to learn Hebrew and was in a kibbutz ulpan for 6 months. We were a motley bunch of young naive kids who acted a bit impetuously sometimes. After a few weeks, some of us grew impatient waiting to get our first glimpse of Yerushalayim Ir HaKodesh and decided not to wait for the official ulpan visit. We took a bus to Jerusalem one Friday afternoon, and then another to the youth hostel in Bayit Vegan. What we hadn’t bothered to do was check if they had room for ten of us. They didn’t; they were completely full. By now it was perilously close to Shabbos. We explained our predicament to the manager who allowed us to leave our muktzah possessions in his safe and, at the suggestion of one of our group, we made our way to the nearest shul. When we got there, this girl saw someone she knew and explained to him our predicament. After davening, the rav made an announcement asking if anyone would volunteer to host one or two of us. There were far more volunteer families than stranded girls and we all enjoyed a wonderful Shabbos, while also experiencing our first taste of spontaneous Jewish hospitality in our homeland. Many years later, I was to experience that same spontaneous chesed, that innate desire to help a fellow Jew, under far more difficult circumstances. When my mother was in the hospital

in London, having broken her leg, my sisters and I took turns being with her. By this time I was married and living in Israel. I left Jerusalem on motzei Yom Kippur, and upon arriving in Heathrow, went straight to the home of the complete stranger who agreed to host me. I intended on spending Sukkos with my mother at the hospital, keeping two days Yom Tov instead of the usual one, and was given a key to a bikur cholim apartment near the hospital. Each room in the apartment had its own individual lock so that several people/families could use it and there was no problem of yichud. Every possible comfort and assistance had been thought of. My sister from Teaneck, who had been with our mother until Yom Kippur, and had used this apartment, had added the final touch by leaving me the key on a Shabbos belt. Then, without warning, on erev Sukkos the doctor decided to transfer my mother to a rehabilitation hospital on the other side of London. I couldn’t complain or refuse. They had been given a list of days when she couldn’t be moved, but of course, Erev Yom Tov wasn’t on it. As I hurriedly packed up her belongings and accompanied her to her new hospital, I made a call to my sister back in Jerusalem and asked her to help me find new accommodations. I had no telephone numbers on me and no time to do my own research. It would be Yom Tov in less than 6 hours and if I didn’t find somewhere else to stay, I would be sitting next to my mother’s bed on a chair for two days. A couple of calls later – one to the rav of the kehilla nearest the hospital and another from him to a family in that kehilla living nearest to the hospital itself – and I was set up for Yom Tov. A home, a sukkah, all my meals, a bed and a new friendship. Mi ke’amcha Yisroel. My children weren’t at all surprised when I told them of the siyatta d’Shmaya I had experienced as well as the tremendous kindness of everyone. “Mum, why are you so surprised?” one of them asked. “Where there are Yidden, there’s always chesed.”

Traces Of A Sandcastle BY LOIS GREENE STONE    “Why don’t I build a sand castle?” Kevin wiped sandy grit from his tiny hands onto his bathing suit bottom. “That’s why I’m at the seashore!” I watched him take his plastic pail and shovel, then, together, we selected a spot near water so the sand would be muddy, but far enough away so the tide wouldn’t destroy his work. “Will my pail be pulled into the sea? Is this spot really perfect?” As he pounded his pail into sand, he tried to recite his dad’s favorite jingle. “She shells sea shells. No, that isn’t right. Sea shells and she sells. She sells sea bells. I can’t do it!” He filled it with sea water to make the sand heavier, like modeling clay. Hours passed; the castle grew layer by layer. Sand was in his hair and under his fingernails; it itched the skin beneath his bathing suit. I told him a bath would make his skin smooth again, and building was hard and important work. He ran back and forth with the water pail. He dug his shovel deeper and deeper finding cool, damp, heavy sand. Kevin worked every day for a week. His castle was getting taller, and the sun-baked finished parts seemed strong. He was also able to say, “She sells sea shells at the seashore” and felt grown up. Storm warnings came from a weatherman, but Kevin told me his castle could escape calamity. He was proud of his creation, pleased with his useful hands. During one night, winds blew and ocean waves reached farther on shore than they had all summer; Kevin’s castle was swallowed by restless water. In the morning, he stood at the place he’d spent so much time and asked me and the sea, “Why?” Water trickled to his bare toes

and moved away. Though the castle had caved-in, the sand stayed. How could I tell him that something remains from any creation? Everything leaves traces. Maybe he knew. He picked up his pail, shoveled wet sand into it, paced five giant steps further away from the sea, emptied the pail. “Okay,” he shrugged, and began again. Traces. Yes, everything leaves traces. At his bar mitzvah, he realized his Torah learning and rite of passage was Hashem helping him shrug off those who doubt a higher power. Standing near his father and grandfather, all clad in prayer shawls, his transition into manhood was a guide to understanding that, as his childhood sand castle had caved in, the sand stayed; the Jewish people “stay” even when wars and anti-Semitism attempt to wash us away. May 2014. He received his bachelor’s degree from the same university, with the same major, as his dad had 29 years earlier. As he was once pleased with his useful hands at the shore, he was pleased with his useful mind and abilities. While physically he won’t be an undergrad ever again, something remains: knowledge, and a better sense-of-self. “Why?” became a more complicated question than in his sandcastle days. Yet the “shore” stays long after the temporary “castle” vanishes. He’ll start a different phase of adult life. Twenty-two years ago, his pidyon haben was an extra-special celebration a month after his bris. May 2014, one of his first cousins gave birth to a son, and I became a great-grandmother. The new baby boy will have a pidyon haben. Creations. Not only does something remain from each, we pass to one another our memories, rituals, love of life and learning. Everything leaves traces.

For These We Cry BY LIBI ASTAIRE

Rabi Yishmael ben Elisha, Kohen Gadol

A

wesome may be an overused word in our day, but how else can we describe the task given to Rabi Yishmael ben Elisha, Kohen Gadol? The cruel Roman emperor had decreed that ten Sages of Israel must die. How were they to know if this was a heavenly decree that could be rescinded by doing teshuvah or if the decree was an unalterable expression of Hashem’s Will? The others asked Rabi Yishmael to ascend to Shamayim and find out. As with Rabban Shimon ben Gamliel, the first Sage to be martyred, there is some doubt as to which Rabi Yishmael ben Elisha was one of the Ten Martyrs mentioned in both Midrash Eleh Ezkerah and the piyyut by the same name. Was this the Rabi Yishmael who served in the Second Beis HaMikdash as Kohen Gadol, and who was a friend of Rabban Shimon ben Gamliel? Or was it the Rabi Yishmael ben Elisha who came from a family of Kohanim Gedolim but who lived at the time of Rabi Akiva – after Churban Bayis Sheni? Although a compelling argument can be made for either claim, we will follow the opinion of those who believe that it was the Rabi Yishmael who served in Bayis Sheni as Kohen Gadol. The Talmud states that the Kohen Gadol

has to be greater than the other Kohanim in strength, physical beauty, wisdom and wealth so that he will be respected by all (Yoma 18a). Rabi Yishmael was known for his exceptionally beautiful physical appearance and, according to Midrash Eleh Ezkerah, he had a face like an angel. Where did such beauty come from? The Midrash tells us that for many years Rabi Yishmael’s parents were childless. Finally, his mother asked his father, “So many other people have children. Why don’t we?” He replied that the problem could be found at the door of the mikvah. When other women saw an inappropriate thing right after immersing, they returned to the mikvah and immersed again. Because she wasn’t careful about this, they hadn’t merited having children. “I will be careful from now on,” she promised. Sure enough, the next time she left the mikvah the first thing she saw was a dog. She returned to the mikvah, immersed and departed—only to be confronted this time by the sight of a pig. This went on until she had immersed eighty times, and then Hashem at last took pity upon her. He sent the Malach Gavriel, in the appearance of her husband, to sit by the door of the mikvah so that he would be the first thing she saw. That night she conceived and,

according to the Midrash, her son resembled Gavriel in both form and face. Although he was himself blessed with many outstanding attributes, according to the Gemara (Berachos 7a) it was Rabi Yishmael who teaches us that the blessing of even an ordinary person shouldn’t be treated lightly in our eyes. Once Rabi Yishmael entered the Kodesh Hakedoshim to offer the incense and he had a vision of Hashem seated upon His throne. Hashem spoke to him, saying, “Yishmael, My son, bless Me!” Rabi Yishmael then uttered his famous blessing, “May it be Your will that Your mercy overpower Your anger and Your mercy prevail over Your other attributes, and that You act toward Your children with Your attribute of mercy and go beyond the letter of the law for them.” Hashem nodded in response to Rabi Yishmael’s bracha which led him to say: if Hashem “acknowledged” my blessing even though I am just flesh and blood, we too should not belittle a blessing given to us by someone we consider to be a simple person. When Rabi Yishmael was asked by his colleagues to ascend to Heaven and determine if it was Hashem’s Will that they should accept martyrdom, Midrash Eleh Ezkerah tells us that it was the malach Gavriel who was the Kohen Gadol’s guide. It was also Gavriel who explained the reason for the decree. The Attribute of Justice came before Hashem every day and demanded, “Did You write even a single superfluous letter in Your Torah? Did not the brothers sell Yosef? Yet You have not yet punished them or their descendants for this!” “Could Hashem not find anyone until now who could receive this punishment?” Rabi Yishmael asked Gavriel. “Why did He choose us?” Gavriel replied that never before had Hashem found ten righteous and holy

men in a single generation like the brothers. Thus, the decree could not be annulled. When Rabi Yishmael returned to this world and related to the others what he had learned, they mourned that not even teshuvah could avert the decree and rejoiced that Hashem considered them to be as righteous as Yosef’s brothers. They had no more questions. Rabban Shimon ben Gamliel and Rabi Yishmael were the first to be martyred. While Rabi Yishmael was still lamenting the death of his good friend, Caesar’s daughter saw him through her window. She sent a message to her father, asking him to let Rabi Yishmael live. When her request was denied, she sent a second message: “Flay the skin off his face so that I can look at it instead of a mirror.” This request was granted. When the cruel executioners reached the place where Rabi Yishmael’s tefillin sat, his cries ascended all the way to the Heavenly Throne—but he did not cry out because of the physical pain. “I am not crying for my soul,” he explained to the Roman ruler, “but because of the mitzvah of tefillin that you are taking from me.” “Do you still have faith in your God?” Rabi Yishmael replied, “Even if you kill me, I will not lose my faith.” The soul of Rabi Yishmael then departed his body (Midrash Eleh Ezkerah). According to Mishnah Smachos 8, when Rabi Akiva and Rabi Yehudah ben Bavi heard the news that both Rabi Yishmael and Rabban Shimon ben Gamliel had been murdered, they tore their clothes and donned sackcloth. They understood that Am Yisrael’s troubles were going to increase and grow worse. Next Week: For These We Cry— Rabi Akiva ben Yosef

Victims

I probe a little deeper and Shula takes me into the

Of

world of phantom pains and prosthetic limbs.

Still Alive But Forever Lost On November 27, 2001 Shula Gaon, mother of three, was caught in a terror attack at the central bus station in Afula, northern Israel. The terrible injuries she suffered did not heal and the decision was made to amputate her left leg. The family’s loss didn’t end there: Miri, her thirteenyear-old-daughter, lost her childhood when she stepped into the role her mother could no longer fulfill; three-year-old Hodaya, unable to accept her mother as an amputee, lost the chance for a warm relationship with her. “We fight terrorism by carrying on with life,” says Shula. “All the same, some things are gone forever.” Too Young for Life Insurance Shula describes the day of the attack – ironically, the day she traveled with a friend to Afula to cancel her life insurance policy. “We’d decided young people don’t need life insurance,” explains Shula. On the way back home, as the women approached the central bus station, they heard shots. They assumed these were the usual shots fired by the neighboring Arabs as part of their wedding celebrations. “We continued walking, but when we saw people running into shops and locking the doors, we realized something was wrong,” Shula says. “We could find nowhere to hide, so three of us squashed into an alcove, one behind the other. I saw someone running past and then coming back. With his jeans, T-shirt and gelled hair, I didn’t know if he was one of ours. Until he raised his gun and shouted, ‘Allah Akbar.’ We ran. My friend wasn’t injured. I was shot six times in my legs,” Shula says. Loss Upon Loss Over the next month, Shula underwent ten operations in an effort to save her legs. Trauma followed trauma: one day, a nurse who was under the mistaken impression

that Shula had been briefed, casually mentioned that since gangrene had set in, Shula’s leg was going to be amputated from the thigh down. After the amputation, Shula spent eleven months in the rehabilitation unit at the Tel Hashomer Hospital. The two-and-a-half hour bus ride meant that Shula’s husband and children rarely visited. Although Shula was fitted with her first prosthetic leg within a month of the amputation, it took several years and numerous operations before doctors were able to fit one that offers Shula a degree of successful mobility. I probe a little deeper and Shula takes me into the world of phantom pains and prosthetic limbs. “Sometimes I feel the blood flowing in my left leg. I feel terrible aches in a limb that isn’t even there,” says Shula. Attaching a prosthetic limb isn’t as simple as I’d imagined. Since the flesh of the stump grows back, it must be trimmed. For a month after every operation, the stump must be allowed to heal, which means that Shula cannot use the limb at all. In addition, since perspiration affects the attachment of the prosthesis, Shula is forced to spend the long Israeli summers shut up at home. “I never knew that I’d be able to wash the floor with one leg,” she says as an aside, giving a last window into her daily struggle. A Family Shattered Like a widening ink stain, the devastating effects of a terror attack spread out from the immediate victim to every family member. Before her injury, Shula was able to support her family respectably working as a chef on a kibbutz. That is no longer possible and the family struggles financially. Even her dental care, a necessity as the drugs that helped her cope with PTSD affected her teeth, was possible only thanks to an earmarked donation. Of course, So-

cial Security does help. But the process is filled with bureaucratic twists and turns. It takes six months after application for the monetary assistance to come through. In the meantime, victims need to pay for taxis, babysitters, food, cleaning help. This is where OneFamily works differently: “When I see a need, we move in immediately to fill it,” says Batya Weinberg, Shula’s coordinator. “We help ensure that the family has the money to meet basic needs.” Shula’s husband, Shmuel, suffers from epilepsy – the aftermath of the trauma he experienced in the army when he found a soldier who had committed suicide. While Shula was once able to shoulder all household responsibilities, her limited mobility has forced him into taking a more active role that puts him in danger. Since it’s impossible to predict the occurrence of an epileptic seizure, a simple trip to the bank becomes a cause for anxiety. Hodaya, three-years old at the time of the attack, is still unable to accept her mother’s limitations. In kindergarten she refused to let her mother attend her birthday party; eventually they held it at home. As the years passed, Hodaya has allowed her mother to attend school events – as long as she sits at the back. Most recently, Hodaya neglected to mention another milestone to her mother: when they reach sixteen, many children in Israel go together with their parents to receive their ID cards in a ceremony at the President’s house. “You couldn’t have come anyway,” Hodaya told her mother when Shula mentioned that she’d have liked to attend. Shula doesn’t judge her daughter. Instead she summarizes her hurt in a simple sentence: “You miss out on a lot.” But it’s the loss of her daughter Miri’s childhood that pains Shula the most. Since both Shula and Shmuel’s parents had passed away at the time of the attack, thirteen-year-old Miri had to master the art of mothering. The incredible pressure of responsibilities too heavy for her shoul-

ders left deep scars that stunted her ability to move towards a career. Today, Miri is twenty-six and works as a shop assistant and has little hope of furthering her education. The Mask That Almost Never Falls Thirteen years after the attack, Shula still struggles with PTSD: “I often see him in front of me and can’t fall asleep because I’m replaying the attack. And I never lock the door: I need to know I can escape.” In addition, the trauma has caused Shula blood imbalances and heart trouble. And yet, she fights on. “Even though I can’t be the mother I once was, I find the strength to move forward because I want to be there for my children,” she says. “I became an actress and I never, ever let my mask fall. My children know that I’m often in pain, but I don’t talk to them about it. And I never discuss my amputation with my husband.” There is one place, however, where Shula feels safe enough to let her suffering show: OneFamily’s support group for terror victims and their spouses. Several groups of, on average, twelve couples meet monthly to share their struggles and learn coping tools. “Here they learn that whatever happens in this non-normal situation is normal,” says Batya. In addition, retreats, attended by injured adults once or twice a year, feature recreation activities as well as marriage counseling, therapies and meetings with social workers. Here, victims draw the strength and gain the support to continue their lives. “By giving up, I’d be giving in to terrorism,” says Shula, summing up her grit in face of adversity. However, when I ask about her plans for the future, she gives a chilling answer that shows how far the family has been shattered: “I’ve had my turn,” she says. I shudder. Shula is still young, with years ahead of her. I pray that she will find the strength not only to continue living, but also to regain some of what she and her family lost.

F E AT U R E When shopping for vintage, always pay attention to cut, fabric, BY REBECCA MORDECHAI

and pattern. Simi Polonsky and Chaya Chanin

Revisiting The Fashionable Past An Overview Of Brooklyn’s Jewish-Owned Vintage Hotspots “I’m sorry, but vintage shopping isn’t for me,” said one girl apologetically to the owners of The Pink Rack, a small vintage shop located in Midwood. The owners, sisters Chani Deutsch and Rivki Oppenheim, were faring their goods at Ohr Naava’s Brooklyn Market, a two-day shopping event that curated a group of sartorially-savvy Jewish vendors in Brooklyn and raised money for the famed women’s Torah center. Deutsch and Oppenheim wanted Orthodox-concentrated areas, like Flatbush, to embrace the vintage trend that other Brooklyn hotspots (e.g. Crown Heights, Williamsburg, and Park Slope) have enjoyed for

years now. And with this in mind, they drove several racks of ‘70’s caftans and ‘50’s skirts to the Brooklyn Market. Yet, like the girl mentioned above, there are still those who are reluctant to sink their fashion-hungry claws into these particular styles. “But this girl was only reluctant until a fabulous leather vest caught her eye,” said Rivki about the former vintage nay-sayer. “And then she ended up leaving with not one but six other vintage pieces!” concluded her sister, Chani. The Pink Rack owners, who started running their business from their house last August, sometimes experience a customer’s hesitance to abandon the predictability of Macy’s shopping for the quirky adventure that is vintage scouring. Nevertheless, with their no-nonsense

styling tips (“we’re absolutely honest about which vintage cuts we think will flatter you and which ones won’t”), their collection of contemporary belts available to quickly modernize, say, a wide ‘80’s dress, and their pre-purchased dry cleaning services, Deutsch and Oppenheim take away much of the doubt that may surround vintage shopping in the Orthodox community. Keep in mind, however, that Deutsch and Oppenheim are not the only sister entrepreneurs to proudly bear their style-conscious swag. Simi Polonsky and Chaya Chanin, co-owners of Frock Swap, a consignment store based in Crown Heights, are the very first Orthodox women to have kicked off the vintage craze. The sisters, who grew up in Australia, founded Frock Swap in September 2009. Armed with the nostalgia of their hometown’s unique style and beaches, they introduced an at once modest, creative, and “let’s-not-take-fashion-so-seriously” panache to Brooklyn’s female Orthodox community. They also, of course, shared their love for vintage: “When we were 15

As of late, vintage has definitely been in vogue in the Orthodox community. years old, we begged our mum to drive us to the vintage shops every Sunday. We knew all the best ones around,” said Simi. And what, precisely, are the

benefits to hunting vintage rack, I ask? “Well, vintage clothes tend to be much more modest than what they sell today. They didn’t have miniskirts in the ‘50s,” answers Simi. “Also,” adds Chaya, “vintage clothes allow Orthodox girls to look

uniquely fashionable and individualistic.” Indeed, anyone who favors vintage knows this is true; Frock Swap’s racks have everything from a refined, 40’s-chic Christian Dior coat to a long-sleeved 80’s party dress with a one-of-a-kind print. Surely one cannot find these pieces, at such reasonable prices, (Frock Swap’s clothes are marked down from $400-$1000 to $50-$400) at Saks or Neiman-Marcus. When asked how one can revamp vintage clothes, Simi responds that it’s smart to pair with them with contemporary items, like modern stilettos or a denim button up. “We wouldn’t tell you to wear a vintage dress with a vintage purse and a vintage pair of kitten heels. It’s definitely more aesthetically appealing and creatively

engaging to mix the new with the old.” Chaya adds that one can also take off shoulder pads or fix the sleeve style to make a vintage item look more current. “When shopping for vintage, always pay attention to cut, fabric, and pattern,” she advises. In addition to vintage, Simi and Chaya buy and consign contemporary merchandise from high-end brands like Missoni, Chloe, and Prada. Frock Swap has what to offer for every sartorial taste and every fashionable inclination. But as it turns out, mother-and-daughter teams can also spearhead this particular Brooklyn trend – not just sister duos. Eva Muller and her daughter, Shevy Goldman, have formed an inter-generational and artistic vision behind their popular Flatbush vintage shop, MyMothersArmoire. Opened in December 2013, it is the first to offer an actual vintage storefront to the Orthodox female community. As I sit down with Shevy, she starts to reminisce about the vintage shopping trips her mother used to take her on. “At first, I wasn’t very into it,” she says. “But then I found an absolutely gorgeous vintage dress when I was 15. And since then, I fell in love with vintage and started to wear it with pieces from mainstream stores like Zara and J.Crew.” Incidentally, Muller has not only influenced her daughter’s style, but also the name of the store. “My mother has a beautiful armoire with Hermes scarves hanging next to vintage YSL bangles and vintage Chanel-esque flower accessories. When my mother wasn’t there, my sister and I used to tiptoe around the armoire and play dress up.” MyMothersArmoire has an exceptionally inviting feel to it. It is at once cozy and elegant with highly organized racks, chic chairs, and a table with magazines for

fashion reference. Furthermore, the staff is friendly and accommodating. “How can this be more flattering to my figure?” and “How can this be tailored?” are questions I frequently overhear customers asking the saleswomen. Muller’s and Goldman’s helpful tips are further strengthened by their knowledge of high-fashion; they are very aware of trends and encourage stepping out of the proverbial box by, say, mixing one’s prints. They even tell customers to bring a blouse or skirt that’s otherwise collecting dust in a closet to MyMothersArmoire. With their trained eye, Muller and Goldman are able find the best “matching” piece for the formerly lonely blouse or skirt and create an inspired outfit. It’s also interesting to note how each of these vintage trendsetters has her own modish flair and allows vintage to influence her in a different way. Frock Swap’s Simi likes a 1960’s Go-Go Girl style with boxy shift dresses while Chaya prefers the hip energy of the 1970s with its loose cuts and fringe detailing (regardless, both sisters were dressed fabulously when I met them). Unlike the preferred bohemian style of the Frock Swap owners, however, Shevy gravitates toward the structured femininity of the 1950s: “I am in awe of the dresses in classic movies like My Fair Lady and Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” Although their fashion preferences may differ, all these vintage stores recognize one undeniable constant: the importance of social media and marketing. The Pink Rack, Frock Swap, and MyMothersArmoire regularly post pictures of their merchandise on Instagram; follow them and you’re guaranteed eye candy and sale updates. Lastly, in addition to the above stores, there is a fourth Jewish-owned vintage gem in Brooklyn. Known as Life Vintage,

this shop is a stand-out, not only because it culls a terrific collection of antiques, but it also donates all of its proceeds to Chai Lifeline! Walk into Life Vintage (they have three locations in the Park Slope and Prospect Heights areas) and shopping becomes the antithesis of the mundane; one can easily justify otherwise self-indulgent purchases because, “Hey, my dollars are going to an extremely worthy cause!” Moreover, the interior design and merchandise of Life Vintage offers a charmingly whimsical vibe. Pink Hoover floor polishers from the 1960s, antique lamps, a collection of classic vinyls and color-coordinated clothing racks will demand an appreciative sigh from hipsters and modern shoppers alike. Runway clothes (from the likes of Valentino and Burberry) are also offered to customers at a fraction of the retail price at Life Vintage. As of late, vintage has definitely been in vogue in the Orthodox community. This reality has also motivated women to start their own home-

It’s definitely more aesthetically appealing and creatively engaging to mix the new with the old. based shops. “Orthodox women are realizing they can be very successful entrepreneurs. We have a

lot of friends in this business and we’re supportive of them. It’s inspiring to see women do this and there’s a need for it,” says Chaya. There is undoubtedly a need for modest, affordable, fashionable clothes in the community, and fortunately for us, these four Brooklyn vintage shops are trying their best to close that gap. “You’re just happy when you wear vintage,” concludes Shevy simply. And, truthfully, who can argue with that statement? Vintage will always offer an intriguing story, a distinctive allure, and best of all, a creative outlet for Brooklyn’s budding fashionistas.

The End Of Summer

T

he week between camp and school can suck the life out you – and it happens every year. School hasn’t even started yet and it’s more than likely that you already feel like you’re falling behind. I know I do. Between sorting through last year’s uniforms to see what still fits, scrambling to buy new shoes, not to mention all the school supplies on the lists (and might I ask the burning question: What’s up with the Ticonderoga pencils? What’s wrong with plain store-brand pencils?!), you know what, I’m done. Not finished with my to-do list done, but done nonetheless. Tapped out physically, emotionally – and financially, too. So last year at this time, I made sure to hurry. I hurried so I could slow down. I avoided the shoe store by ordering shoes online; I raced through Target one night, sans kids, for all the school supplies and we held a school-uniform-family-fashion show. And when we looked up from the light blue/dark blue polo-shirt folding frenzy, it was only Tuesday. Three glorious days left to summer.   I’ll be doing the same thing this year.  Taking it easy, at least to me, means staying home. No trips to Dutch Wonderland or Hershey Park or even the beach. We are going to relax and we are going to be productive at the same time. Or, if we’re being honest, I am going to relax and the kids are going to be productive, but in a fun way. I promise.  The first mission is to bake muffins, many m a n y muffins. Enough muffins to stock the

freezer with loads of fun grab-and-goschool snacks. These particular muffins are oatmeal but feel free to improvise and use your own favorite muffin recipe. Oatmeal Muffins  (makes 12) 1.5 cups Whole Wheat Pancake Mix 1 cup uncooked oatmeal (not instant) 3/4 cup brown sugar 1 cup soy or rice milk  1 egg 1/4 cup oil  4 ounces of applesauce  ​Preheat the oven to 425° degrees. Let the kids do all the prep work by themselves, mixing by hand. Pour the batter into greased muffin tins and bake for 13 minutes. In our house, I am still the only one who can touch the oven, but if you have older kids, it’s quite likely that you can remove yourself from this muffin-baking frenzy completely. In any case, take the muffins out of the tins and allow them to cool completely before either wrapping each one in foil or placing each muffin in a snack-size bag before freezing. I generally pack lunches the night before, so the muffins thaw in the fridge overnight.  I have also, on occasion, gone a little crazy and added in chocolate chips, dried cranberries or even blueberries.  Let’s move on. The house smells fantastic and the muffins are baking away; it’s time to look forward to Sukkot. Don’t look at me like that, just breathe deeply and hear me out. I am fully aware that talking about Sukkot sounds insane and that you have not yet even entertained the idea of putting together a Rosh Hashanah menu. It’s okay, no one has. Well, some people have, but we can’t be friends with them. 

The plan for right now is to make the easiest decoration ever – the paper chain. Except we’re not going to use paper (ha!), we’re going to use colored foam sheets, available in a package of assorted colors at your local craft store. Foam sheets will seem a little pricey compared to construction paper, but they are so worth it. And the truth is, they’re not even all that pricey – about $6 for a pack of 40 sheets. We first made chains with these foam sheets a few years ago and our chains are still brightly colored and looking good, despite many Sukkot rainstorms and a hurricane during a kiddie birthday party (don’t ask).  First, get yourself a pair of good scissors and a stapler, or if you have an older child, hand over the scissors and stapler and go sit on the couch. But before you sit down, be sure that the sheets of foam are being cut into strips, about 1” wide and the length of the short side of the foam sheet. If you cut up the whole package of sheets you will have more than enough strips.  My kids decided what color patterns we would use and what color would go next. They handed me strips, I stapled (in a very zen-like state, I might add) and an hour later we had five huge chains and one relaxed mommy.  We like to hang these fun and festive chains around the house indefinitely and just move them outside to the sukkah at the right time. But that’s just us. You can feel free to store them with your other decorations in the special, super-organized bin you have just for Sukkot decorations, which lives on the top shelf in the garage. Are you laughing too? Because there’s no bin? And no shelves in the garage? Yeah, me too. That’s another reason why we keep them hanging in the playroom all year ‘round.

If you are anything like me, you will likely feel very ready for a nap right about now, what with all that climbing up and down the stepladder in order to hang the foam chains up. Now would be a good time to talk to the kids about relaxing during these last few days before school starts. You can demonstrate by showing them how to build a fort using blankets and sheets and pillows and the backs of dining room chairs and couches. The kids can pile inside the fort with a snack, a drink and library book from the stack that was probably due last week. And with a little luck, they might even fall asleep in there – which can only mean one thing. Cue nap time for Mommy. Here’s a fort building tip – keep the roof (flat bed sheets) from falling in on itself by attaching the sheets together with big black binder clips – the kind of clips one might use to hold many papers together. And here’s another tip. Keep the walls of the fort sturdy by draping the sheets over the side of the couch and then lying down on top of the section of the sheet that extends onto the couch. You are not being unproductive; you are protecting the integrity of the fort. Like every good mother would. And when you all wake up from your collective naps, you will feel refreshed and ready to sort and label the two tons of school supplies that are still sitting in the trunk of your minivan. Go ahead, grab that Sharpie and inhale that new notebook smell. It’s a brand new school year, make it a good one.

I don’t know what to do.” “Sit tight,” the guard ordered. “I’ll see what I can find out.” Fifteen minutes later the guard yelled his name. “Listen, Weinmann, your lawyer had a heart attack and is undergoing bypass surgery as we speak. Looks like the hearing is postponed indefinitely.” A primal scream rose up from Chaim’s throat, startling the few prisoners nearby. The scream continued for a full minute, a cacophony of agony demanding release. “Weinmann, lockdown,” the guard ordered impassively. “Inappropriate inmate behavior. Effective immediately!” Chaim fell onto his knees and, with the guard pushing him along, crawled back to his cell. Tears dropped freely down his cheeks; he hadn’t cried this way since he was a small child. Freedom had beckoned to him like a whisper – he was almost able to touch it. And with savage cruelty, it was snatched away again, with no hint of when it might return. His cell door was slammed tight behind him. Curling up into a tight ball on the cold floor, Chaim rocked back and forth, sobbing until blessed sleep wrapped him in its comforting hold.

How long had it been since Breindel had owned anything new? Not since the outbreak of the war, which she could barely recall. “I purposely knitted it a little large for you, so that it will fit you when you’re older too. Now, you can just roll up the sleeves, and you can unroll them as you grow! Oh, you’re simply a beauty!” she gushed, and her fleshy cheeks dimpled in pleasure. Marie, in contrast, was aghast when Breindel returned to the house. “THIEF!” she cried. “Where did you get that sweater? You stole it! Give it back right away!” “I didn’t! I didn’t!” Breindel screamed, as Marie tried to tear it off her. “The baker’s wife gave it to me! It’s mine!” Marie was so furious that she stormed right over to the bakery to verify Breindel’s tale. She returned shortly after and glared so furiously at the girl that a tremor passed through her. Three weeks later, while washing the dishes, a porcelain plate slipped through Breindel’s fingers and shattered. With a furious shout, Marie tore Breindel’s sweater off her and announced that she was confiscating it as payment for the platter. The girl ran sobbing to the bakery and wept that her stepmother had stolen her precious sweater from her. The older woman was so enraged that she recruited her husband and two nephews to join her on the walk to Marie’s farm. A furious argument ensued between the women until Marie had no choice but to return the sweater. If her mistress had gazed repugnantly upon her until that day, her expression now became one of outright loathing. Never had Breindel

TEENS & TWENTIES

Bliss, Loss, Under Fire, Peace? My Summer in Israel By Rivka Hia The only way to really understand what happened in Israel this summer is to have been here. I arrived in Israel on May 27. It felt the same as it had the last time I was here, a little under a year ago. I roamed the shuk eating fresh figs, hiked my ancestors’ paths, camped out on the beach, learned at seminary, and met with friends all over the country. On Friday, June 13, my adventures were marred by the taste of what living in Israel really means. I was waiting in the Central Bus Station with my friend, Phil, who was in uniform. A soldier hearing us speaking English asks if we know what happened. Three of our boys have been kidnapped, he says, near Hebron. We think: Impossible, Phil would be the first to know, his unit is in Hebron. As Shabbat arrives, the news is verified. Shabbat in Tel Aviv; the synagogue packed with scores of Jews of different affiliations, gathering together to recite Tehillim, the words ascribed to King David. They worked for him, let this be over soon. Sunday comes, but it’s not over. Travel plans with friends are still on, though it’s hard not to constantly check my phone for updates. I feel the urgency during our tefillos. Natives slap me with “Are you crazy?” as I wait for a hitchhike, and I retort “We can’t live in fear.” I see my the face of my seminary teacher, Rachelle Fraenke on television. This was happening. One minute you’re shaving s h wa r m a o f f a pit, then the shwarma guy tells you he read a (fake)

WhatsApp that the boys are dead. I visit Phil’s base in Hebron, and see the conditions his unit works under. Soldiers are no longer the attractive gun-holders I knew from teen tours. These are my friends,

spending their 20th and 21st years following orders and “eating dirt” in the field. The condition of their equipment helps me decide on my latest project. I contact friends and family, and raise enough money to donate headlights and water backpacks, around $10,000, through Yashar LaChayal. The project was personal. I couldn’t just prance around the country, freeloading protection from kids my age. They were putting their lives on the line to ensure our safety. What was I doing? I start volunteering with Ethiopian teenagers in Kiryat Malachi, teaching English in a summer camp with YU Counterpoint. I learn about the government’s low expectations for the teens. This manifests itself in camp, where my campers tell themselves they have poor English. I see that without us, most of these campers would be on the street, many without food at home, with no aspirations to even finish high school. But we believe in them. It’s June 30 and we’re eating dinner. After nightly words of Torah, our head counselor rises. She generally speaks only when there is news, and in these past few weeks no news has been good news. I ha-

ven’t checked my phone in the hour since dinner started, and in a way I was grateful that the news was coming from someone I knew. It was over: the three kidnapped boys were dead. We walk back to our dorm in silence. All staff meetings were canceled, all plans postponed. All we could do was lie on the grass in silence. We ask each other: Why do bad things happen to good people? What happened to all of our prayers? Will I spill my theological crises to strangers on the bus, or will I put my headphones back in my ears as if nothing has happened? I think of Robert Frost’s poem “Home Burial” – is it better to mourn or better to move on? A question I would find myself asking all summer. For camp at least, my personal answer didn’t matter. The next day I would come to camp with a smile and my usual excitement. Our campers needed us. On July 6, the dorm is on lockdown. Our program head reminds us where our merchav mugan, safe area, is in case we need it. Malachi’s first siren blasts the next day, and we miraculously all reach the safe area in under forty-five seconds. They tell us to pack overnight bags for a day or two. As I pack my bag, I’m on the phone with Phil who updates me. In the middle of their search for terrorists, his unit is packing up and getting ready to go to Gaza. In the middle of my packing, our head counselor tells us to bring our suitcases with us. At that moment I knew we weren’t coming

back. The counselors call that night “the Exodus.” We left in a rush in the middle of the night to Jerusalem, leaving our campers behind without saying goodbye. We were free to leave, and they would stay, sirens, rockets, and all. I try to make the most of my time, but I miss my campers, I miss what I came to Israel to do. I don’t think we’re running our second camp in Dimona after leaving Malachi early. To my surprise, we go to Dimona after all. Objectively, the media knows Dimona by headlines: sirens, rockets, depravity, soldiers at war. But I know my Dimona campers, whose favorite activity is singing

“Am Yisrael Chai,” in the most unexpected of places – the safe room of camp during the siren. Death looms over the country, but camp moves on. We make cards, videos and cookies. We give the cookies to soldiers and Dimona residents, “cookies to lift your spirits,” I say, because people don’t like handouts. We were part of the city, more than just working with the municipality and the education ministry. We were with them, lived every red alert with them. On the last day of the program, we bring our Malachi campers to Jerusalem for the day to finally say goodbye. Our summer comes full circle. They remember the vocabulary words

we taught them. I tell them they could do whatever they put their mind to, as they look at me with wide eyes; they’d never heard that before. The counselors can’t help but compare Malachi and Dimona, both development towns in the South, but they couldn’t be more different. And why would I, or any of my American friends, or any Israelis living in the center or north know this? Israel exists beyond Jerusalem and Tel-Aviv, as does its potential and talent. On one of my last days in Israel, I saw Rachelle Fraenkel at the learning in memory of her son Naftali, and Eyal, and Gilad. Through her gleaming eyes and smile it was hard to see a woman who had just lost her son. I saw a woman who strengthened a nation. Israelis have never felt so close to each other. And while my donated flashlights didn’t find the boys alive, they helped the soldiers through difficult days in Gaza. The light at the end of Hamas’ terror tunnels is the IDF, maybe with one of my flashlights. I don’t know when this operation will end, but I wonder if we’ll be left with something more than battle wounds. In the words of one of my friends who was in Gaza: “The important thing is to increase the love in the nation, and try to maintain the unity that was formed through the Operation after it’s over.” I hope we can do that.

The Wall

As thousands of salty tears flow, As my nation prays as one I know We must pray to G-d and find solace At the WALL.

My land is under attack My country’s fighting back, I run with all my strength To the WALL.

Centuries of crumbling stone Tell a story all their own, Fragments of lives are hidden In the WALL.

There are screams and cries of fear As missiles fly through the air, As they fall upon us we go To the WALL.

Scraps of parchment are wedged in the cracks Heartfelt prayers for things which we lack; Yisrael we must unite At the WALL.

We are shattered more each day As the lives we know are taken away, The only thing that still remains Is the WALL.

When the world is being yanked apart, When you’re in pain know inside your heart You can always pray to G-d At the WALL.

By Chayala Nachum

Stories About Tzedakkah Binyamin HaTzaddik was in charge of the tzeddakah box in his town. One day, during a time of great hunger, a woman approached him for some money. “I swear to you,” he replied, “that there is nothing left in the pushka.” “Sir,” she begged, “if you don’t help me, my seven children and I will die from hunger.” Binyamin HaTzaddik then supported the woman out of his personal funds. Some time later, he became ill and was near death. The angels in heaven appeared before HaKadosh Baruch Hu and cried “Ribbono Shel Olam, You Yourself decreed that he who saves one life is considered as if he saved the entire world. Yet Binyamin HaTzaddik,

who saved a woman and her seven children, should die so soon?” The Heavenly Court immediately tore up the harsh decree and it was said that twenty-two years were added to his life (Bava Basra 11). ***

One day Rabi Elazar, Rabi Joshua and Rabi Akiva traveled to a distant city to raise funds for the community pushka. There was a wealthy man, Aba Yudin, who was known for his kind heart and for his great contributions to charity. But time wreaked havoc with his estates and he soon became a poor man. When Aba Yudin saw the sages approach, he felt ashamed, realizing he

couldn’t afford to donate to their cause. He entered his house very dejected. His wife noticing his mood, questioned him about his sadness. “The rabbanim are here and I can’t give them a thing,” he replied. His pious wife then had an idea. “We still own a little plot of land,” she said. “Sell half of it and give the money to the sages.” He followed her advice and, before departing, the rabbanim offered him a bracha. “Aba Yudin, may the Lord return your wealth, for all the kind deeds you do.” The following day while Aba Yudin was plowing his small field, his sole remaining ox fell into a deep hole and broke its leg. Aba Yudin began digging around the hole to help his ox, when

he spied a hidden casket. Opening it, he found many jewels, a diamond and gold and Aba Yudin became very wealthy again. The following year, when the rabbanim returned, they inquired about Aba Yudin. “Aba Yudin?” was the reply, “Who can have the honor of seeing his face. He has become so wealthy, powerful and rich.” When Aba Yudin heard they were in town, he rushed out to greet them. “Your prayers for me have multiplied tenfold,” he exclaimed. They replied, “Although your gift was very small last year, we placed your name at the top of the list,” and upon him they then quoted the sentence in Mishlei, “The gifts of man precede him, it leads him before the great.”
