bringing you the best in certified organic kosher products and takeout.
You donʼt need to be a health nut to shop at Organic Circle. Studies have shown that organic food is of higher quality than conventional products. Organic products are fresher, since theyʼre preservative-free and have shorter shelf life and get restocked often. They have a natural and rich taste, since theyʼre free of artificial colors, flavors and sweeteners. And of course, theyʼre healthier for you and the environment, since theyʼre free of harmful pesticide and fertilizer application. Organic foods are not only free of dangerous substances, but they also contain a wealth of vitamins, minerals and enzymes. Organic produce was found to provide 21% more iron, 27% more vitamin C, 29% more magnesium and 14% more phosphorus than standard fruit and vegetables. “People hear the word organic and automatically think produce, but in fact, almost every type of food can be found in an organic version.”
Fresh Takeout Organic Circle has a full line of ready-made, tempting takeout. Made with 100% organic ingredients, our meals are fresh, healthy, and delicious. Call or email your order for free delivery to anywhere in the tristate area!

THE UPSIDE OF MONEY (Re: Money Habits, Issue 17) I want to thank you and commend you for raising this topic in such a beautiful, real and Torah’dig way. I was raised with the opposite view in regard to finances, and it took years of hard work to change my perspective. Baruch Hashem, now I know that money is not a bad thing and that Hashem has enough to go around. We only need to submit and be a keili to receive His blessings. A Grateful Reader

comfort in knowing you’re not the only one trying to catch a few more winks and attempting to go about the morning routine amid the intermittent ringing, but I’m with you. A practical suggestion to all mothers out there who want to minimize chances of gezel sheinah: Preprogram your phones with the phone numbers dialed at unusual hours of the day or night (think a shiur/hotline that gets you through that final stretch in the wee hours). By ruling out human error during dialing at times when our memory is not at its best, you may be saving the day for a fellow Yiddishe mother. P.F.
A SKIN SOLUTION (Re: The Winter Hunt for Health, Issue 16) Last winter my son had an interesting skin issue on one part of his face. I tried everything, from natural manuka honey to cortisone cream, to all types of oils and moisturizers in between, but nothing seemed to work. When I found the exact same thing on the exact same spot a few weeks ago, I decided to wait until the winter is over and not waste my time and energy on trying new ideas. But after reading Ruchy Reese’s article about dry air, I decided that I have nothing to lose by trying a humidifier. I opted for the cheapest one and got it prescribed by my pediatrician. After two nights of sleeping with a humidifier next to his bed, my son’s skin is, baruch Hashem, completely healed! Thank you, Ruchy Reese and The Boro Park View, for your informative and interesting articles. Keep them coming! A Fan
READY AND WAITING (Re: Shabbos, I’m Waiting for You!, Issue 12) We love The Boro Park View! Thank you so much for the article you featured about getting ready
on time for Shabbos. Since that week, we are, baruch Hashem, ready every Friday on time. Thank you! This is all in your zechus! The Twersky Family
YOUR VOICE THE ULTIMATE PROTECTION Thank you for giving us a place to voice our thoughts. In light of the recent attacks on Yidden and the increased police presence, I’d like to share something I remember hearing from Rav Avigdor Miller, zt”l, which is so pertinent now. Rav Miller asked: What was the difference between the outcome of the story of Purim and the outcome of the Holocaust? Both resha’im set as their goal “l’hashmid il’harog il’aved es kol haYehudim.” But why did the latter partially succeed and the first one not? Rav Miller answered this with the following explanation: During World War II, we had politicians, newspapers, etc., so our thoughts were distracted from the only Source our salvation could come from. During the times of Mordechai and Esther, on the other hand, we had no options other than the tried-and-true method: “Lech kenos es kol haYehudim” — to daven and to do teshuvah. Please, let’s not make the same mistake again. This increase of police presence cannot possibly truly protect us. Of course, we are very grateful to them for their honest efforts, but our only protection comes from Above. So while we should take sensible, practical steps, let that not take the place of focusing all of our energy Heavenward. Anonymous

PA RS H A S SHEMOS Morah Steinâ€™s fourth grade class was behaving very chutzpahâ€™dig one day. Despite repeated warnings, their behavior only worsened, so Morah Stein cancelled recess for the entire class for the rest of the week â€” four recesses in total. Instead of spending a half-hour each day on the playground and enjoying their snacks, the girls would have to remain in their seats and write essays on the importance of respect. During the first missed recess, the subdued girls quietly wrote their essays without complaint. By the second missed recess, the girls were already feeling the effects of the punishment, especially as the window in the fourth grade classroom provided an excellent view of the inviting playground. By ten minutes into their third missed recess, the girls were utterly miserable. A portion of the class began to whine and complain about their hands aching, about their hunger, and about the torture of not getting to play on the playground. â€œThis is ridiculous!â€? cried one girl.
â€œThis punishment isnâ€™t going to teach me to be more respectful â€” just the opposite!â€? whined another. At the same time, another faction of the class had a completely different response. They understood that their teacher had been perfectly justified in punishing them, but nevertheless, they, too, felt they could no longer tolerate the missed recesses combined with the essay writing. They politely raised their hands and asked to approach Morah Stein. When they reached Morah Steinâ€™s desk, the girls sincerely apologized and asked her to please release the class from further punishment. Morah Stein saw in their earnest faces and polite demeanors that the lesson had really been learned. They were indeed displaying more respectful behavior. Morah Stein then agreed to cancel the remainder of the punishment, and without further ado, dismissed the class to the playground. It says in this weekâ€™s parsha, â€œVayehi vayamim harabim haheim vayamas melech Mitzrayim vayeiâ€™anchu vâ€™nei Yisroel min haâ€™avodah vayizaku vataâ€™al shavasam el haElokim min haâ€™avodah. Vayishma Elokim es naâ€™akasam vayizkor Elokim es briso es Avraham es Yitzchok vâ€™es Yaakov â€” And it came to pass in those many days that the king of Mitzrayim died, and Bnei Yisroel sighed from the labor, and they cried out, and their cry ascended to Elokim from the labor. Elokim heard their cry, and Elokim remembered His covenant with Avraham, with Yitzchok and with Yaakov.â€? (Shemos 2:23â€“24) The Kli Yakar points out that instead of writing â€œvayeiâ€™anchu vâ€™nei Yisroel min haâ€™avodah vayizaku â€” Bâ€™nei Yisroel sighed from the labor, and they cried out,â€? the pasuk could have stated, â€œâ€œvayeiâ€™anchu vayizaku vâ€™nei Yisroel min haâ€™avodah â€” Bnei Yisroel
It is certainly okay to cry when we suffer, but we must cry appropriately.

sighed and they cried out from the labor.” Why did the Torah instead word this statement in two separate statements, one about sighing and one about crying out? The Kli Yakar explains that there were two factions among Bnei Yisroel. The righteous group cried out in tefillah, davening to Hashem to save them from their suffering. The second group cried out in complaint, not in tefillah like the first group. Thus, the pasuk separates the two statements, because they represent the two factions. We also see in the lashon that only the cries of the righteous reached Hashem, and it is their cries to which Hashem listened: “Bnei Yisroel sighed from the labor, and they cried out, and their cry ascended to Elokim from the labor. Elokim heard their cry, and Elokim remembered His covenant with Avraham, with Yitzchok and with Yaakov.” From this, we see that it is certainly okay to cry when we suffer, but we must cry appropriately. We must not complain about our portion in life, but we certainly may cry to Hashem and ask Him to remove our suffering. In fact, it was the cry of the people that triggered the redemption, not the fact of their suffering. The Torah does not say that Hashem saw their suffering and began the redemption, but that Hashem heard the cry. Hashem had been waiting for us to cry out to Him, to daven to Him, before bringing our salvation, just as He waited for Adam Harishon to daven for rain before he brought rain to water the earth. Especially in light of recent events, let us all cry out to Hashem to bring about the geulah sheleimah bimheirah b’yameinu.

In Dual Appearances, Rabbi Rottenberg Offers Brachos in Albany, Makes Public Statement in Monsey Making his first official remarks since the Chanukah machete attack that shook the Jewish community to the core, Rabbi Chaim Leibish Rottenberg delivered the invocation preceding Governor Andrew Cuomo’s State of
the State address and, later the same day, held a press conference outside his home. Rabbi Rottenberg traveled to Albany on January 8, speaking with the governor before the unveiling of Cuomo’s 2020 “Making Progress Happen” agenda, which included a proposal that could have those who perpetuate mass-scale hate crimes facing life in prison without the possibility of parole. Offering his blessings in Albany before the State of the State address, Rabbi Rottenberg uttered a prayer for Cuomo to be guided along a path that would protect the rights of New York’s Jewish community and would promote tolerance for all. Rabbi Rottenberg also noted that while he will never forget the horrors that unfolded in his house on the seventh night of Chanukah, positive memories linger in his mind as well. “I will never forget how, in the face of tragedy, we were blessed by G-d,” said Rabbi Rottenberg, “the miraculous fashion in which the attacker was subdued, which limited what could have been a far worse and fatal event. We pray that Divine Providence should contin-

ue protecting us from evil forces who are out to harm us physically, or from those who are out to attack our Chasidic, traditional way of life and system of education.” Just hours later, Rabbi Rottenberg spoke out again in front of his home, refusing to speak with reporters or to even mention the name of the intruder who entered his home, reported NBC News. “Despite all the horror, we hold strong and stand tall in our faith in the Almighty,” said Rabbi Rottenberg. “The Chasidic people in Rockland and across New York State may look different, dress differently, speak a different language and choose to educate our children according to our traditions — we, like many diverse people of Rockland County, are all created in the image of G-d.” Just one day later, there was another significant press conference in the Monsey area, with Rockland County Human Right Commissioner Constance Frazier introducing a plan to curb acts of hate. Frazier spoke about meeting with elected officials, community leaders, schools, and religious and ethnic groups to implement long- and short-term strategies to end divisiveness. Mentioning both hate speech on social media and New York’s newly enacted bail reform law, Frazier called on elected officials who visited Rockland in the wake of the Chanukah attack to become more involved, stressing the need for changes to be made at the federal level. “Rockland County is the smallest county in the state, and yet the most diverse,” said Frazier. “It is that diversity that will be our strength as we embark on this journey together.”
Local Politicians Blast City Officials for Lax Attitude Regarding Hate Crimes; Mayor Announces New Security Cameras In a scathing letter dated January 7, Senator Simcha Felder called on Mayor Bill de Blasio to resign over the recent rash of anti-Semitic hate crimes.
Now booking night layette appointments. Please call: 347-267-8047
Felder threw the blame squarely at City Hall for creating a climate that emboldens those who would perpetuate violence. “Mr. Mayor, your dismal failure in responding to this crisis is stunning, even for a mayoralty marked by dereliction of duty and severe mismanagement,” said Felder. “Open your eyes. Hate has taken full advantage of your negligence and the dangerous, irrational policies heaved upon this city by your administration. On your watch, hate has come home to roost, and despite your assertions, hate has found a very comfortable home here.” Felder also slammed de Blasio for relying on security cameras for protection instead of increasing manpower in Orthodox Jewish communities, noting that police officers can actually stop crimes while cameras simply record them. “We don’t need an administration that kicks up more fuss over the mistreatment of turtles and geese than human beings,” said Felder. “This city is in a death spin, and you, Mayor de Blasio, are at the helm and completely incapable of righting its course. The only thing you can do to protect the people now is resign.” One day later, City Councilman Kalman Yeger joined Felder with strong words for elected officials who had shown up days earlier for a Brooklyn Bridge march to protest anti-Semitism while doing little else to put an end to the hatred. Speaking passionately at a council charter meeting, Yeger blasted politicians and members of the media for repeatedly fanning the flames of anti-Semitism, specifically calling out those who “spent Sunday posing for pictures with Jews but spend the other 364 days of the year festering hate against my community.” Yeger pulled no punches as he took on critics of yeshivah education saying, “When, ever, has anyone seen a group of yeshivah students run down a street and smack someone in the head? Why is that never discussed? How we raise our children to be honorable, intellectual, decent members of society? How we are kind to one another? Instead, you paint us all with a scarlet letter of derision.” Hamodia reported that Mayor de Blasio announced last Friday that 100 new security cameras were being installed in Williamsburg, Crown Heights and Boro Park. Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said that the cameras would be used to “support increased patrols and the targeted deployment of counterterrorism officers at key locations to ensure that everyone is safe.”

Recap: Tzippy’s wedding invitation creates waves as the recipients wonder why the wedding will be held earlier than scheduled, and in a school gym. Eliyahu Potolsky returns the money he’d borrowed for the wedding, with a brief explanation to the gemach director about the grant he’d received. He also gives ma’aser from the money. “Shaina?” It was Nechama Kagan, Shaina’s cousin from Petach Tikvah. As principal of Bais Yaakov Zichron Elchanan, Shaina Rosen was a busy woman, and her cousin had caught her just as she was about to leave her office. “Hi, Nechama, how are you?” “Baruch Hashem, nothing special here. Tell me, we got a very strange invitation today from friends on the block... What’s the story with Stockhammer and Potolsky? Bais Yaakov Zichron Elchanan is your school, isn’t it? Since when do people make weddings in your gym?” “It’s really just a one-time thing.” “Is it true that Stockhammer’s son, the chasan, is sick? And he’s supposed to have surgery in a month, so they’re making the wedding early?” Shaina switched off the light in the office. “I haven’t heard that,” she said cautiously. “So what did they tell you?” “That they got money from a special fund if they would make the wedding on Rosh Chodesh Teves, and being that all the regular halls were already taken, they were looking for an alterna-
tive that could work.” “Strange. Maybe this money is just an excuse to cover up the truth... I heard that they asked a rav, and he told them not to drop the shidduch. A school gym as a wedding hall...? Who called you about it?” “Mrs. Stockhammer herself. From what I understand, she’s the one dealing with all the details of the wedding: the band, the photographer and all that.” “Interesting... And are you even allowed to rent out the gym in the first place? It probably belongs to the municipality, no?” “We really aren’t allowed to.” “And so?” “We gave it to them to use for free. They promised to take care of the place, and it’s during Chanukah vacation anyway, so if it won’t hurt the school. And if the chasan’s and kallah’s families can be helped financially because of it — well, why shouldn’t we do this chesed?” “Are they bringing in a caterer, or organizing the food themselves?” Nechama could not imagine Bayla

Stockhammer — or her daughters, for that matter — standing and cooking in such quantities, and then transporting all the food to the hall — or rather, school. But she knew that many people were in dire financial situations these days. And if the rumors about the chasan were true, chalilah... Who knew what people were going through...? “I don’t know. I asked if they needed help with anything. She told me thank you, but no.”

***** “Eliyahu?” Eliyahu didn’t like talking on his cell phone in the street, but when Yocheved, his oldest sister, called in, he knew that he had little choice in the matter. So he stepped off the sidewalk into a small park that he was just passing. At this evening hour, the park was deserted. “What’s doing, Yocheved?”
Eliyahu didn’t like talking on his cell phone in the street, but when Yocheved, his oldest sister, called in, he knew that he had little choice in the matter. “Baruch Hashem, everything is wonderful. How are you? How is little Shmuel?” Eliyahu nodded absently, and a moment later remembered to say, “Baruch Hashem, excellent.” When had he last seen his grandchild? Yaakov and Miri hadn’t come for three Shabbosos already; Elisheva was just so overwhelmed and tired. And she was hardly home during the week, so he didn’t think Miri came by very often then either. In any case, going out with a baby in the winter probably wasn’t such a good idea. “Does he look like Tatty, zichrono l’vrachah?” “I think so.” “Actually, at the bris I thought he looked very much like Yaakov’s side of the family,” Yocheved remarked. “What do I know of these things?” her brother replied. In reality, the baby did not look much like their father at all. In his opinion, he didn’t look much like anyone in particular; he was just a baby! “I’m not very good at figuring out whom babies look like.” Yocheved chuckled. “That’s how all men are... But babies also change really fast. Well, I’ll be able to

see him again myself soon enough. I heard from Elisheva that you moved the wedding up, hmmm?” “Didn’t you get an invitation?” “We got it, yes, just this morning. What did people say about the fact that the wedding is in such an unusual venue?” “No one said anything to me so far,” Eliyahu replied. “And if people will say something? Are you planning to tell them about the guy from Australia?” “To the extent that we can, I guess. We’re not going to publicize it, but we probably will give a brief explanation. I don’t think it’s wise to keep it a secret; people won’t understand where we suddenly had the money to afford such a big, beautiful apartment for Tzippy.” “Yes,” Yocheved agreed. “The truth is that Yankel Feigenbaum — you know, Minna’s Yankel — asked me about it.” “How did he hear?” “His mechutanim live in the building on Nechemiah Street, the one where you bought Tzippy’s apartment.” “So you can tell him about it briefly,” Eliyahu replied. It began to drizzle. “Well, I figured that’s what you’d say, so I already told him. He was very happy for you.” “Baruch Hashem.” Where was his umbrella when he needed it? “He told me that his mother needs to have cataract surgery on both eyes, but it’s something very complicated. They want to fly her to America.” “They want to go to America for cataract surgery?” “Yes, it’s apparently not a simple case at all.” “Wow, I hear. I hope she has a refuah sheleimah.” Had he forgotten his umbrella at Auerbach’s gemach? “I’m talking about Aunt Minna. Tatty’s sister.” “I know who Yankel Feigenbaum’s mother is, Yocheved.” He didn’t know why he was irritated; perhaps it was because of his absent umbrella and the monotonous drizzle that was seeping into his hat. He took it off.
If he would be buying a new hat for the wedding, and making his Shabbos hat into his weekday one, then he wouldn’t care too much about what was happening to this hat. But it had only been just over a year since Miri’s wedding, and he’d bought a new hat then. That one — unlike this one — was in excellent shape. So there really was no excuse for him to use the grant money to buy another hat... “If you know who she is, then why are you being so cold about it? It’s your aunt.” “I didn’t notice that I was being cold.” Eliyahu began walking back in the direction he had come from. “I wished her a refuah sheleimah, and I’ll
apartment for Tzippy now, won’t you have 40,000 shekels for them? How much did the apartment cost? Two or three million, huh?” “Yocheved.” Eliyahu stopped at the entrance to Auerbach’s building, and hoped he wasn’t sounding too brusque. “Yocheved, I don’t have an extra penny! Tell them that. Not 40,000, and not 4,000! Actually, I will have 4,000.” “How is it possible that you don’t have money, after this whole story?” “Yocheved, the money didn’t just land on my head one fine day!” He wiped the raindrops from his forehead. “It was designated for a very specific purpose. We got a sum of money, as did the chasan’s parents, and we have to submit receipts for all of our purchases and expenses. Don’t you understand? I can’t take any money from the account and use it for something that is not for the wedding!” “So how do you have 4,000?” his sister probed. “I got permission to take off ma’aser money from the grant.” “Oh, and that’s the ma’aser, a tenth? Are you trying to tell me that you got only 40,000 shekels? And how much did the apartment on Nechemiah Street cost?” “I don’t like these interrogations, Yocheved,” Eliyahu said quietly. “But I will tell you that I don’t have to take ma’aser from the money I got for the apartment. We asked a shailah, and that was what the rav said.” “And how much did you get besides for that?” “I have to go inside to someone now,” Eliyahu said, halting the conversation, “before it gets too late and I can’t knock anymore. I’ll talk to you another time, okay?” “Fine. And I’ll tell Yankel, who’s calling in on the other line, that you can give him 4,000 shekels, alright? Not that he’s going to be very excited. It’s not even going to cover a roundtrip ticket. But I’ll tell him you said that this is all you can give right now.” To be continued...
He didn’t know why he was irritated; perhaps it was because of his absent umbrella and the monotonous drizzle that was seeping into his hat.

daven for her when I find out the exact date of the surgery. What else did you want me to do?” “Ask how they are planning to pay for such an expensive operation. I don’t need to tell you that Aunt Minna has no money, do I? And her children are in the same situation, more or less.” The drizzle intensified just a bit. “Like all of us...” “Not exactly.” “Right, not everyone in Klal Yisroel is penniless, baruch Hashem.” “So you’re not going to ask how they’re planning to get the money?” “Nu, how?” “They’re trying to go around collecting for it.” “Hashem should help them. I hope they’re matzliach.” “They are planning to talk to you, too, you know.” “Me?” “Yes.” Yocheved spoke in her characteristically direct style. “If you have money for such a stunning

Senate Impeachment Trial Set to Begin THE PULSE: Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi
announced that she would stop withholding the articles of impeachment from the Senate. She said that she intends to send both articles of impeachment against President Trump to the Senate as early as this week. Once the Senate receives the articles, the impeachment trial can get underway. THE IMPACT: Pelosi held back the articles of impeachment as a means of exerting pressure on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Pelosi had hoped to pressure McConnell into agreeing
58 / THE BORO PARK VIEW / January 15, 2020 www.thebpview.com / 718.408.8770
to Democratic demands to call witnesses during the Senate impeachment trial. McConnell did not cave to Pelosiâ€™s pressure and refused to accept her demand that the Senate agree to a framework to call witnesses before the trial begins. However, Pelosi was successful in drawing attention to the issue. Republican Senator Susan Collins of Maine announced that she is working with a small group of like-minded Republican Senators who are attempting to find a way to call witnesses to testify at the upcoming trial. McConnell himself did not rule out the possibility of agreeing to call witnesses once the trial begins. Former National Security Adviser John Bolton is one witness whom Democrats would like to hear from, and he has recently indicated that he would be willing to testify should the Senate subpoena him.
Iran Controversy Heats Up THE PULSE: Top administration officials briefed Congress on the killing of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani. They made the case that Soleimani posed an imminent threat to U.S. interests. President Trump claimed that Soleimani was planning to attack four U.S. embassies. However, many members of Congress were not convinced. Republican Senator Mike Lee called it the “worst briefing” he has ever received on a military issue. Libertarian Republican Senator Rand Paul continued to be critical of the president’s decision. Both have indicated that they would support a War Powers Resolution being introduced in the Senate to limit the president’s ability to take military action against Iran without first consulting with Congress. Staunch Trump ally and supporter Congressman Matt Goetz (R-FL) also announced that he would support the House version of the resolution. In an interview with Face the Nation, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper admitted that he had “not seen” any specific evidence that Soleimani had planned to attack four embassies as President Trump had claimed. THE IMPACT: Trump’s decision appears to have paid
handsome dividends. The strike successfully removed a foe of the United States who was personally responsible for the deaths of many American citizens. The attack served to enhance America’s deterrent capability. It showed that America would not sit idly by while Iran continues to push the envelope with its attacks on American infrastructure in the region. The relatively meek response of Iran to the killing of Soleimani appears to show that the fear that a strong reaction to Iran would trigger regional destabilization was overblown. The mistaken downing of a Ukrainian Airliner by the Iranian air defenses further served to increase the pressure on the Iranian regime. Multiple protests in Tehran against the government and Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei appeared to vindicate the aggressive policy of the Trump administration. President Trump sent a message in Farsi to the people of Iran that American stands with them and against their government. However, Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of the Iranian-backed Hezbollah terror group, vowed to take action against America for Soleimani’s death and said that the Iranian missile attacks against the U.S. base was only the beginning, and not the end, of the Iranian response. However, many members of Congress are still livid that the president did not consult them before carrying out the attack. The constitution grants Congress the power to declare war, and the War Powers Resolution of 1973 limits the president’s ability to use military force without Congressional authorization. Past presidents, such as Bill Clinton, have also been accused of violating the War Powers Act. However, under Article II of the constitution, a president has the right to exercise mili-
tary power to defend American citizens. This is why the Trump administration’s justifications for the attack are so important. It is also why the shifting explanations with regard to the type of threat Soleimani posed from different members of the administration are proving problematic. In a recent ABC/Ipsos poll, 56% of Americans opposed the administration’s actions regarding Iran.
Marianne Willamson Withdraws From Race THE PULSE: Self-help author Marianne Willamson an-
nounced that she is withdrawing her candidacy for the Democratic presidential nomination. THE IMPACT: Williamson is a granddaughter of Jew-
ish-Russian immigrants and is the author of four bestselling books. Her candidacy has always been a long shot, and she did not qualify for the last three Democratic debates. However, she scored some notable moments in her early debate performances, when she drew attention to the Flint water crisis and the outsized influence of corporate political donations.
Cory Booker Suspends Campaign THE PULSE: New Jersey Senator and former Newark
Mayor Cory Booker announced that he was suspending his campaign and would no longer be seeking the Democratic presidential nomination. Booker did not qualify for the upcoming Democratic debate, and even though he fielded an extensive ground operation in Iowa, he failed to poll among the top-tier candidates in that pivotal early-voting state. Ultimately, Booker’s campaign was unable to raise the necessary funds to sustain his campaign, and his message failed to resonate with voters. On the day he withdrew, he was polling at 2% nationally. THE IMPACT: Booker’s withdrawal from the presidential race allows him to concentrate on his campaign for reelection to the Senate in 2020. Booker has a political career ahead of him, and that is likely part of the reason why he decided to call it quits on a presidential campaign that he realized was out of his reach. Booker is a leading voice on criminal justice reform, and he was instrumental in getting the First Step Act criminal justice reform bill passed in the Senate. Booker is also a leading proponent of gun control legislation. Booker retains his status as a force to be reckoned with within the Democratic party, and some are touting him as a possible vice presidential contender.

ANCIENT GRAINS M O D E R N I Z E D
Recipes and photography by: Miriam Pessy Wercberger
Centuries before the invention of Motrin and antibiotics, the Rambam, a brilliant physician, taught us to eat in a way that nurtures our bodies, minds and souls. In the following recipes, the spotlight is on ancient grains, which offer more nutrients than the refined grains available today. These superfoods have made a comeback recently as people are experimenting with foods that taste great while nurturing and protecting.

In the meantime, mix honey, soy sauce, ketchup, vinegar, garlic and sriracha. Dip cutlets in sauce, coating both sides. Once broccoli has baked for 15 minutes, add chicken to the same pan. Lower the oven temperature to 400° and roast for an additional 20 minutes. 4. Remove from oven and top cutlets with sesame seeds. To assemble grain bowls: Divide cooked farro evenly among four bowls. Top with sliced cutlets, cabbage, roasted broccoli and a sprinkle of sunflower seeds
1 tsp. salt, divided 1 lb. ground beef 1 egg 1 T. soy sauce 1 T. ketchup 1 tsp. garlic powder ¼ tsp. black pepper

Cordova, Spain, 1148 Jewish life in Cordova was brought to a halt when it was overrun by the Almohades, an extreme and aggressive Muslim sect. Until that point, Cordova was a bastion of Torah and Yiddishkeit where Jews enjoyed a serene existence, steeped in learning and a connection with Hakadosh Baruch Hu. The Almohades heralded their unsolicited arrival with a brutal decree for the Yidden: Convert or be killed. A great number of the community was ruthlessly murdered. Some, however, were unable to withstand the pressure and converted. Rabbi Moshe ben Maimon, later known as the holy Rambam, was but thirteen years old at the time. His family was of the few locals who managed to escape. Gone were the peaceful days of his youth. Gone was the opportunity for calm, undisturbed learning with his father, Rabbi Maimon, the dayan of Cordova On the streets of old Cordova, Spain

and a talmid of the Ri Migash. Gone was the extensive seforim library of Rabbi Maimon, burned by the Almohades. In its place, a new life began. For the next eleven years, the Maimon family was on the go, running from one point of refuge to another in their quest for a peaceful place to reside. They wandered through Spain and Northern Africa, eventually settling in Fez, Morocco. Here, too, the Almohades spread their sphere of influence. Many Yidden converted to Islam outwardly, keeping the Torah in secret. The Rambam publicized his Iggeres Hashmad, which discussed the issue of apostasy in depth. Before long, his condemnation of such conversions pitted him as a primary target of the ruling Muslims. Thus it was, that about five years
after settling in Fez, the Rambam returned to the escape routes, this time setting out for Eretz Yisroel. After a short while, for unknown reasons, the family sojourned yet again, this time settling in Fostat, Cairo. Remarkably, it was against this backdrop of persecution and instability that the Rambam established his repute as a leading Torah authority. He began writing his first great work, a commentary on the Mishnah, in his mid-twenties. The manuscript came along with him on his travels and was finally completed once in Fostat.
Fostat, Cairo, 1171 A few months after the family settled in Fostat, tragedy struck
Overview Reb Moshe ben Maimon was born in Cordova, Spain, on Erev Pesach 4895/1135 CE. He was orphaned from his mother at a young age. His father, Rabbi Maimon, was a direct descendant of Dovid Hamelech. When the Rambam was thirteen years old, savage Muslim rule in their hometown led the family to flee. They wandered for more than a decade, stopping in Fez, Morocco, and Eretz Yisroel before eventually settling in Cairo. A halachic authority, the Rambam authored many seforim, including Peirush Hamishnayos, Mishneh Torah and Moreh Nevuchim. The Rambam also demonstrated medical brilliance, promulgating discoveries in health and healing, and serving as royal physician. He was niftar on 20 Teves, 1204, and was laid to rest in Tiveria. Chief in prominence in gedolei Sefard, the Rambam illuminated the entire Torah world for all generations with his rich legacy.

with the passing of Rabbi Maimon, the Rambam’s revered father and teacher. The Rambam’s younger brother Dovid undertook to support the entire family, entering the field of diamond trade. It was a quintessential Yissachar-Zevulun partnership; Dovid handled the business affairs, and the Rambam learned without financial concern. Soon this arrangement, too, fell upon misfortune. On a business trip to India, Dovid’s ship sank at sea. Most of the family’s wealth, converted into a collection of precious gems to be traded, went down in the Indian Ocean along with Dovid. The Rambam was deeply affected by the loss of his brother. Aside for his personal bereavement, this turn of events forced Reb Moshe to take over the family’s finances. No longer could he remain enclosed within the four cubits of halacha without a care. Turning to the education of his youth, which included mathematics, medicine and philosophy, he began to practice medicine. His fame as a doctor of note spread quickly. The Grand Vizier Alfadhil appointed him as personal physician. Soon the Rambam was hired by Sultan Saladin. The Rambam’s rise to prominence was not taken lightly in the royal court. The former Muslim physician of the Sultan as well as other court ministers constantly sought ways to diminish his influence and even eliminate him altogether. Brilliantly, and with much siyata d’Shmaya, the Rambam outwitted their every attempt.

The Rambam’s grave after undergoing reconstruction in Teveria, Israel.
The Rambam’s days were packed full; he held three positions at the same time! The Rambam once wrote about it in a letter, commenting that he barely had time left to learn. The strain of his daily schedule was incredible. After a long day in the Sultan’s court, the Rambam would arrive home only to find it crowded with patients seeking his medical counsel. The burden of the community’s affairs fell on his shoulders, too, as the official “Naggid” of the city. Similar to the Reish Galusa in Bavel, the Naggid was responsible to collect all Jewish taxes and represent the Jew-
ish community in the royal government. And, of course, this was all in addition to his religious responsibilities as rav. Despite all this, the Rambam authored many seforim. Looking at the veritable library attributed to his name, one can wonder how he had the time and ability to compile, research and write so many major works in his lifetime. And yet, the
writings of the Rambam merely took up a sliver of his schedule!
Prolific Author The Rambam’s novel approach in writing his seforim was unprecedented and never replicated. He sought to explain the Torah in a manner so that every Yid could achieve true clarity, and he used drastic new measures to organize the material. To this end, he usually wrote in Arabic, the prevailing language in his region, but his works were soon translated into
The Rambam’s description of the basic symptoms of pneumonia — acute fever, pain in the side, short, rapid breaths and serrated pulse and cough — are still referenced to by doctors even today!

Lashon Kodesh. His first major work was the Perush Hamishnayos, an extensive commentary on the Shisha Sidrei Mishnah. Included in it are his famous Shemoneh Perakim, which includes an introduction to Pirkei Avos, and the thirteen ikrei emunah. The Rambam stated that every Yid must believe in all these principles, for it is kefirah not to. These passages of Ani Maamin, found in our siddur today, are a somewhat revised version of the original verses. The principles are also written poetically in the tefillah of Yigdal, at the beginning of Shacharis. The Rambam’s next monumental opus was the Mishneh Torah, also known as the Yad Hachazakah. In it, the Rambam compiled halachos and minhagim from Talmud Bavli and Yerushalmi. In line with his systematic way of thinking, the Rambam arranged it by topic rather than by following the order used in Shas. In response to the study of Greek
and Arabic philosophy that was unfortunately gaining popularity among Yidden at the time, the Rambam authored his next work, the Moreh Nevuchim. It was written with a philosophical slant, aimed at shedding light to those already exposed to foreign thought. Still, Moreh Nevuchim was criticized for opening the eyes of sheltered Yidden who
may never have had questions in the first place.
Proficient Physician Shortly after he began to practice medicine, the Rambam became known for the devoted and compassionate way in which he treated pa-
The Gates in Fez In Fez, the Rambam’s fame as a scholar who excelled in Torah and academia spread among Yidden and Muslims alike. Before long, his strong stance on the issue of forced conversion earned him the Muslims’ contempt, and he was personally persecuted as a threat to Islam. One day, he was chased by a gang of Muslims. As he approached the city gates, the mob nearly overtook him, and the Rambam called out Hashem’s name. A lion suddenly appeared at the gate, and many of the gang retreated. But then they resumed their chase, and as they neared the second gate, the Rambam cried out the Shem Hashem again. This time his pursuers found themselves chained to the ground. At the third gate, a pillar of fire separated the Rambam from the Muslim gang. These gates are called the Lion’s Gate, the Gate of Chains and the Gate of Fire until this very day.

tients — on top of his advanced skills and knowledge. He paid close attention to anyone who needed his care, Yid or gentile, rich or poor. As the sultan’s personal doctor, the Rambam’s fame spread even farther. From as distant as England, he was contacted by King Richard the Lionhearted who wanted him as his personal physician, too. The Rambam ultimately turned down the offer, preferring to remain in Egypt where he used his status to help his brethren under Islamic rule. The Rambam bequeathed us with more than fifteen treatises on the theory and practice of medicine. He made some discoveries way back then regarding medical issues we face today, such as asthma, hepatitis and hemorrhoids. His description of the basic symptoms of pneumonia — acute fever, pain in the side, short, rapid breaths and serrated pulse and cough — are still referenced to by doctors even today! The Rambam also described diabetes, positing that it was less common in cold Europe and more prevalent in warm Africa. In his seforim, the Rambam mentions medicine and guidance for leading a healthful life. Physical well-being and caring for our bodies, he notes, are part of our spiritual obligation. The Rambam didn’t believe in merely treating symptoms of disease. With a “whole body” approach, he first examined the patient’s eating habits, fitness levels, and emotional and psychological well-being. Both in times of health and illness, he advocated the mind-body balance.
Twilight Reb Moshe ben Maimon passed away shortly before the age of seventy. His wish to be buried in Eretz Yisroel was fulfilled, and he was laid to rest in Tiveria. The site of his kever, frequented by many, was recently renovated, and placards of the passage, “M’Moshe ad Moshe lo kam k’Moshe — From the time of Moshe Rabbeinu until Moshe ben Maimon, there was no one like Moshe,” still stand.

Everyone knows the name of the Rambam — but do we really understand his impact? Many influential people have walked this planet, leaving a mark that’s felt even long after they’ve passed on, but few have single-handedly accomplished as much as Rabbeinu Moshe ben Maimon, the heiliger Rambam. With medical knowledge that catapulted him to a position of great prestige and led to the authorship of several volumes on various health topics, the Rambam earned his place in the annals of history as a physician par excellence. For this, his name has been plastered across buildings, institutions and journals and is held in high esteem even by those who have little to do with Torahtrue living. But even more profound than all of this is the impact the Rambam had on Yiddishkeit. It’s not for naught that his tombstone bears the words, “From Moshe to Moshe there arose none like Moshe.” Aside from his incredible intelligence and analytical thinking, the Rambam was known as a gentle soul, unable to turn away those who sought his help. In a letter to his friend, Rabbi Shmuel ibn Tibbon, the Rambam discouraged him from undertaking an arduous and dangerous sea journey, explaining that it would be impossible for them to meet for more than a few minutes. He described his overtaxed schedule, which in-
80 / THE BORO PARK VIEW / January 15, 2020 www.thebpview.com / 718.408.8770
volved waking early and traveling every day (aside from Shabbos) to the Sultan’s palace to care for those who required his medical services. This alone was nearly a full day’s work, but then there was still a return journey and many more hours of attending patients in his own home. In the Rambam’s own words: When I come home, my foyer is always full of people — Jews and non-Jews, important people and not, judges and policemen, people who love me and people who hate me, a mixture of people, all of whom have been waiting for me to come home. I get off my donkey, wash my hands, and go into the hall to see them. I apologize and ask that they should be kind enough to give me a few minutes to eat. This is the only meal I eat in twenty-four hours. Then I go out to heal them, write them prescriptions and instructions for treating their problems… I talk to and prescribe for them
The Daily Rambam In 1984, the Lubavitcher Rebbe established a daily learning schedule for the Mishneh Torah. Thousands of people each day learn the Rambam on either the three-chapter or one-chapter-a-day schedule.

Also Known By The Mishneh Torah is also referred to as the Yad Hachazakah, which alludes to the fourteen sections of the work. “Yad” has a gematria of fourteen. The Mishneh Torah, being the Rambam’s greatest work, is often simply called by his name, as in, “Did you learn the Rambam today?”
even while lying down on my back from exhaustion. And when night begins, I am so weak, I cannot even speak anymore...
And yet, despite the pressure of work responsibilities few can imagine, the Rambam was one of the most prolific contributors to the world of Torah learning. Neither the burden on his body nor the one on his soul stopped him from accomplishing what few can even fathom. The Rambam was intimate with suffering, having been orphaned of his mother at a young age and exiled from his homeland. It was during this especially difficult time, while
fleeing the Muslim sword, that the Rambam wrote his first great work, a commentary on Mishnayos known as the Sefer Hamaor. “I was working on this commentary under the most arduous conditions,” he wrote, “as we were driven from place to place... while traveling by land or crossing the stormy sea.” An average man may have given up the goal of scholarship due to the circumstances — but the Rambam was no average man.

Of Philosophy and Fire Despite the esteem in which he was held by world Jewry, two of the Rambam’s major contributions to Yiddishkeit became the focus of much controversy: the Moreh Nevuchim (Guide to the Perplexed), which deals with philosophical aspects of Yiddishkeit, and the Mishneh Torah, which aside from being a complex body of law, also contains philosophical concepts in Sefer Hamada, its first section. These philosophical sections were received in vastly disparate manners by Yidden in the French provinces after the Rambam’s passing. The Jews of Southern France were, by and large, blessed with security not seen farther north. This was a prosperous region where the Yidden were given liberties such as land ownership and importation rights, and in many ways, even admired by the non-Jewish community. For a significant portion of this segment of French Jewry, the philosophy of Yiddishkeit was a treasure; finally they would know what to answer the non-believer should they be lured into philosophical discussion! Up north, however, the Yiddishe community had little contact with the outside world, as they were looked upon with scorn and bitterly persecuted. Their lives centered around being

mekabel ol Malchus Shamayim in simple faith, far away from the eyes of those who hated them. For the rabbanim of the northern kehillos, philosophy was automatically associated with the free-thinking communities of Spain — communities that had lost large numbers of religious adherents to foreign concepts that had lured them away.
There were rabbanim in Southern France who shared the views of their northern brethren, believing the Moreh Nevuchim and Sefer Hamada to present significant spiritual dangers for those who were not sufficiently prepared to delve into the philosophical depths. This was a machlokes between the poskim, though many great rabbanim were in favor of the dissemination of these texts. The Ramban, who was born during the Rambam’s last years, also felt that some of the concepts within these seforim were not meant for the masses. To that end, he proposed that Sefer Hamada be learned, but not Moreh Nevuchim. The controversy over the seforim died down when the Dominicans, a segment of the Catholic Church that went on to lead the Inquisition, burned these seforim — claiming they were blasphemous and a stumbling block that prevented the Yidden from converting to Catholicism. At that point, all of the Yidden realized that the Rambam’s honor had been terribly affronted. The controversy fizzled out, and over the years, the Rambam’s various seforim have been afforded a place of honor on Yiddishe bookshelves all around the world.
caused him to become a pillar of Medieval-era Yiddishkeit, his name known far and wide. At only 42 years of age, the Rambam was appointed Chief Rabbi of Cairo, and Jewish communities from all over the world sent him halachic shailos. The Yeminite community, especially, afforded the Rambam great honor, and even added a line to their Kaddish that said, “May He establish His Kingship... in your lifetime and in the lifetime of the entire House of Israel and in the lifetime of our teacher Moshe ben Maimon.” The tremendous love the Yeminite community felt toward the Rambam was on account of his literally saving them — both in body and in soul. In that era, the Yemenite Jews suffered terribly under religious persecution from the Muslims. To compound their suffering, a Jewish apostate was heavily attempting to convince the community that because Moshiach hadn’t yet
An average man may have given up the goal of scholarship due to the circumstances — but the Rambam was no average man. come, it was time to embrace the Muslim religion. The hurting and confused Yidden of Yemen reached out to the Rambam, who, with gentle words and a flowing pen, banished any confusion from their minds through a lengthy letter known as the Iggeres Teiman. Additionally, the Rambam entreated Saladin, the ruler in whose court he was a physician, to prevail upon the Muslims of Yemen to ease their persecution of the Jews, which he did. The Morrocon and Spanish Jews, too, benefited greatly from a letter that the Rambam wrote. Though the Maimon family had left Spain when the Almohades — a fanatical Muslim sect — conquered the region, many Yidden still remained in those lands and were forced to choose between exile, death or conversion to Islam. With fear of the sword hanging above their heads, many accepted an external life of Islamic practice but continued to observe the mitzvos in secrecy. At that time there was a respected person among the Yidden who declared that Jews who pretended to convert were transgressing on multiple fronts, and that even their mitzvos were held against them as sin. The Rambam, departing from his usual manner of gentle encouragement, wrote a scathing letter in response, rebuking the “long-winded foolish babbling and nonsense.” Point by point, he refuted that person’s position, clarifying the halachos of conversion under duress for the suffering community, giving them hope and strength. And while the specific aspects of that
January 15, 2020 / THE BORO PARK VIEW / 85 www.thebpview.com / 718.408.8770
supposed conversion only involved uttering a statement without involving violation of the mitzvos, the Rambam nevertheless ended the Iggeres Hashmad stating that one should choose exile and “...leave these places and go to where he can practice religion and fulfill the Law without compulsion or fear.” Likewise he wrote, “If he is compelled to violate even one precept, it is forbidden to stay there. He must leave everything he has, travel day and night until he reaches a spot where he can practice his religion; the world is sufficiently large and extensive.” Through the Rambam’s wise guidance and utmost clarity in halacha, not only were Yiddish lives saved, but Yiddishe neshamos, as well. And his reach continues to affect us today, largely in part due to his magnum opus, the Mishneh Torah.
He’d been through enough pain to deeply relate people in difficult situations. For the Rambam, gentleness and caring was the responsibility of every Yid.

86 / THE BORO PARK VIEW / January 15, 2020 www.thebpview.com / 718.408.8770
their holy tomes, you’ll surely find the Mishneh Torah, a staple in every Yiddishe home. No matter one’s nusach of prayer, style of dress or pronunciation of Lashon Kodesh, each and every Yid knows that the Mishneh Torah is a wonder in its own league. But what exactly is it that sets this collection apart from anything that came before or after it? Aside from the fact that the Rambam, a young exile, began this world-changing compilation at a mere 25 years of age, the breadth of Torah covered in the Mishneh Torah is astounding. When he set out to write the Mishneh Torah, he had in mind to make the laws of the entire Torah accessible to every man. Though the Rif before him, the heiliger Rabbi Yitzchok Al-Fasi, had penned Se-
fer Ha’halachos — a groundbreaking compilation that extracted the laws a Yid must know from within the depths of the Gemara — the Rambam went a step further and codified the entire body of Torah law by topic, including those halachos that are not currently able to be fulfilled. The Rambam wrote in his introduction to the Mishneh Torah: ....A person will not need another text at all with regard to any Jewish law. Rather, this text will be a compilation of the entire Torah Shebaal Peh, including also the ordinances, customs and decrees that were enacted from the time of Moshe, our teacher, until the completion of the Gemara, as were explained by the Geonim in the texts they composed after the Gemara. Therefore, I have called this text Mishneh Torah; a person should first study the Written Law, and then study this text and comprehend the entire Torah Shebaal Peh from it, without having to study any other text between the two.
There were those who feared that the Rambam was attempting to do away with the study of the Gemara, but that was not his intent at all. His goal with the Mishneh Torah was to provide a simpler format for the average man to understand and have within his grasp the full scope of Jewish law — but not at the expense of studying the Gemara. In fact, in the laws detailed in Talmud Torah (1:11), he writes that one-third of a man’s study time should be devoted to the Gemara. In the attempt to make the work more accessible for all Yidden, the Rambam wrote the Mishneh Torah in Lashon Kodesh instead of Arabic (which he used for all of his other works), or the traditional Aramaic. He also used brevity in language, and for that reason, failed to cite his sources. On this point, the Rambam wrote that he regretted the omissions and that should time allow
him, he would go back and compile them. He was, unfortunately, niftar before being able to accomplish this. It is fascinating to note that the last two chapters of the Mishneh Torah, in the sefer entitled Malachim u’Milchamos (Kings and Their Wars), deal with a set of halachos that our nation has never yet been able to fulfill, but pray to fulfill every day: the laws related to the era of Moshiach. There he writes of the tasks that Moshiach is required to accomplish in order to actually be crowned Moshiach, and he describes what Moshiach’s times will be like. He also reminds us what it is about Moshiach that we truly look forward to. In the Rambam’s own words: The chachamim and nevi’im did not yearn for the coming of Moshiach in order to have dominion over the entire world, to rule over the gentiles, to be exalted by the nations, or to eat, drink and celebrate. Rather, they desired to be free to involve themselves in Torah and wisdom without any pressures or disturbances, so that they would merit the World to Come, as explained in Hilchos Teshuvah. In that era, there will be neither famine or war, envy or competition, for good will flow in abundance, and all the delights will be freely available as dust. The occupation of the entire world will be solely to know Hashem.
–Hilchos Malachim U’Milchamos, 12:3–4
The coming of Moshiach is about shleimus haTorah, about fulfilling Hakadosh Baruch Hu’s will in entirety and living our lives in exquisite closeness with Him. Though we may not, at this very moment, be able to keep all of the laws and ordinances decreed upon us, by learning this sefer that the Rambam has gifted us with, we will be better prepared for that day when it comes, bimheirah v’yameinu.

The Rambam is famous for his incredible contributions to the Torah world, but during his lifetime, he sought not to financially profit from his vast Torah knowledge. To that end, he also worked as a physician. A man of tremendous knowledge and wisdom, the Rambam was enormously successful as a doctor, and many people are familiar with his preventive health guidelines. Much of this guidance can be found in Mishneh Torah, Sefer Hamada, De’os, chapter four. These guidelines cover everything from nutrition to sleep to bathing to exercise, and most intriguingly, come with an alluring promise: a long life. Before setting out to detail his guidelines, the Rambam placed them in the proper perspective, stating: “Maintaining a healthy and sound body is among the ways of Hashem — for one cannot understand or have any knowledge of the Creator, if he is ill.” The following is a brief summary of the Rambam’s guidelines for health as related to diet, exercise and sleep. (There are other guidelines that can be found in De’os, chapter four, which are not included here.) Before reading the advice, keep in mind the words of Rabbi Leib Kelemen, who points out that this information was stateof-the-art over 800 years ago, but if a pointer contradicts modern medicine, one should heed the advice of modern doctors whose knowledge is drawn from more recent research based on current conditions. Always seek the guidance of your doctor before making any changes to your diet or lifestyle.
90 / THE BORO PARK VIEW / January 15, 2020 www.thebpview.com / 718.408.8770
The Rambam’s Guidelines Walk to raise your body temperature before you eat. Alternatively, exert yourself in some other way to the point of sweating each morning, rest a little to regain your composure, and then eat. Bathing in hot water after this exercise is also beneficial. Afterward, wait a short while and then eat. Always eat while seated, or while reclining on your left side. Never eat unless hungry, and never drink unless thirsty. Never eat until your stomach is full; stop at three-quarters of full satisfaction. After eating, do not exert yourself until the food has been digested. Never put off relieving yourself, even for an instant. Sleep for eight hours each night, and time your sleep so that you awaken just before sunrise. Sleep on your right side at the beginning of your sleep, and on your left side for the final portion of sleep. Wait three or four hours between eating and sleeping. Do not nap during the day. Eat poultry before meat, and eggs before poultry. In general, eat lighter foods before heavier foods. Foods that have a laxative effect, such as grapes, figs, mulberries, pears, melons, certain types of cucumbers, and
certain types of squash, should only be eaten before the main meal. Foods that have a constipating effect, such as pomegranates, quinces, apples and certain pears, should be eaten immediately after the main meal, and not in large amounts. In the summer, eat foods without many spices, and include vinegar. In the rainy season/winter, eat seasoned foods, many spices and include mustard and sharp foods. The following foods are extremely harmful: large fish that are aged and salted, cheese that is aged and salted, truffles and mushrooms, meat that is aged and salted, wine from the press, cooked food that has been left over until it produces an odor, and any food with a bad smell or a very bitter taste. These are like poison to the body. Other foods that are harmful, though less harmful than those mentioned above, should only be eaten in small amounts and not often. These include large fish, cheese or milk that was left out more than 24 hours after milking, the meat of large oxen or he-goats, horse-beans, lentils, chickpeas, barley bread, matzos, cabbage, leeks, onions, garlic, mustard and radishes. Foods that are harmful, though less harmful than those listed above, include waterfowl, young pigeons, dates, bread roasted in oil or kneaded in oil, flour that has been sifted until no bran remains [white flour], fish brine and pickled fish oil. Do not eat these in large quantities. Figs, grapes and almonds are beneficial, whether fresh or dried. As long as one exercises, exerts himself greatly, does not eat to the point of satiation, and is able to relieve himself with ease, one will not suffer sickness and will grow in strength, even if he ingests harmful foods. Whoever is sedentary, does not relieve himself when he has the need, or is constipated, will be full of pain for all of his days, and his strength will fade away even if he eats the proper foods and follows the rules of medicine. Overeating is like poison to anyone's body. It is the main source of all illness. Most illnesses that afflict a person are caused by harmful foods or by filling one’s stomach and overeating — even healthful foods.
Interestingly, there are foods that the Rambam lists as harmful that many today consider to be healthful, such as chickpeas and dates. Chickpeas, and all beans, but especially red kidney beans, contain a toxin called phytohaemagglutinin. It is important that the cooking of all beans, including chickpeas, includes fifteen minutes of vigorous boiling to remove this toxin. Dates are an excellent source of potassium, but too much potassium can lead to hyperkalemia. Thus, while dates are considered very healthy today, one should not eat too many each day. Furthermore, modern science seems to confirm that restricting calories does indeed lead to a longer life in lab animals and has been shown to slow the ageing process in humans. Another concern regarding the Rambam’s guidelines for health is whether or not his promise of long life still holds true. Unfortunately, we are living in times when there is chemical contamination in everything, from the air we breathe, to the food we eat, to the water we drink, and this may have a negative effect on our health no matter how hard we work to maintain it. In modern times, we must try to avoid exposure to pollutants as much as possible. A study conducted at Michigan State University in East Lansing showed that living with HEPA air filters reduces blood pressure by an amount similar to the effects gained by exercise or reduced sodium diets. That said, we should certainly do what is within our power, and doing our best to maintain a healthy lifestyle can only help. Ultimately, the Rambam’s advice seems to be to use moderation in life: to eat, but not too much, and not the wrong foods (whatever those may be); to sleep a full eight hours each night, and not to nap; to exercise, etc. Maintaining our health is a vital component of our avodas Hashem, and there are many steps we can take to do so, from fixing our diets to improving our sleep schedules. May it be with hatzlacha!

Life at a Glance MENACHEM, age 24: works in sales LEAH, age 23: runs her own business sewing custom gowns and dresses ARON, age 3.5 MIRIAM, 18 months Both kids are in daycare. In the past year, Leah has had to cut down on work because Miriam has been sick a lot. Menachem’s job isn’t bringing in enough to cover, and their debts are catching up with them. Real numbers and real facts. Identifying details have been changed to protect privacy.
Recap: Finding themselves in serious debt, Menachem and Leah realize that it’s time to take charge of their finances.
We’ve scheduled an appointment with a financial coach — I finally talked Menachem into it. He’s still really upset about my not agreeing to the cash advance, but at least we agreed not to talk about it anymore. We’re very serious about this meeting; by now we’re both willing to do whatever it takes to turn our financial life around. I know we have our work cut out for us, but I feel like change is coming. Menachem, on the other hand, is still skeptical about this; he feels that as good as the coach is and whatever plan we come out with on paper after our session is over, we still have to go home to face an empty fridge, stacks of bills and a landlord we can’t pay. I’m not proud of the beginning of our meeting. It feels like we’re both telling on each other — nitty-gritty things like my picking on Menachem’s sesame chicken takeout (which he buys way too often! He never eats my food anymore) and his attacking my cleaning help. I kind of expected the coach to tell us what a deep mess we’re in and how horribly we botched up, but I’m pleasantly surprised when he gives us hope. He tells us, “Don’t blame each other; support each other. You are victims of the credit card company’s marketing tactics and of the American debt mentality.” He helps us realize we’re not the only crazy ones — that this is something many, many people go through. Yes, we made some not-smart decisions, but that doesn’t mean we’re not smart. He encourages us to stop being so hard on ourselves and on each other, and to support each other through this. He says, “You can — and will — make this work. The past is gone, so learn from your mistakes and focus on the future.” I’m excited to start doing just that.
These feelings are very common. Many people are reluctant to pay a financial coach to sit with them when they’re behind on rent and groceries. And the truth is, Menachem is right — we coaches don’t give out any magic potions that make the bills go away. But we do help you get your financial pegs in order, pinpoint what is going wrong, plan out your goals, and help you create a strategy to get there. You will leave with a clear plan of action and the hope and peace of mind that it brings. At the end of the day, what you end up paying your financial coach is peanuts next to the money you’ll earn and save with the insights you gain from him.
January 15, 2020 / THE BORO PARK VIEW / 95 www.thebpview.com / 718.408.8770
Menachem: We are hesitant to give up our credit cards right away, so the coach encourages us to lock them into a fireproof box. Borrowing money is a very big deal. I never realized that when I swipe my credit card in the shoe store, I’m technically taking out a loan… He tells us that once everything is paid off, we should have plastic surgery — where we cut up all of our cards and do a confetti party. The sound of it makes us smile. The coach helps us create an inventory of all the debts we have. There’s place on the sheet for assets, but we currently own nothing. Seeing it all in black and white is overwhelming; we owe more money than I wanted to let myself believe. $33,242.67! But there’s also relief in having it all written down in one place; my brain can let go a little, and it feels like the first step toward the future. I can do this!
Coach’s Take • Lock your cards up in a fireproof safe. Use only debit cards — no more credit. • Create an inventory of all the debts that you currently have. Knowing what you’re facing makes it easier to conquer.

Start with the smallest debt first. Once that’s paid off, transfer the minimum payment you used to pay for that — plus any extra income — to the second smallest debt, and so on. • Paying it off in this order will help you lower the amount of lenders you owe and alleviate the stress of having so many collectors on your back.

The Dirshu Siyum HaShas at Tel Aviv’s Yad Eliyahu: An Overview of a Very Special Night BY RABBI NACHMAN SELTZER I waited for the moment when every seat in the gigantic arena at Yad Eliyahu would be full, knowing that the sight of thousands of bnei Torah celebrating the Siyum HaShas in loving achdus was not something you see every day. I wasn’t disappointed. Black and white in every section of the arena. Here and there, I could see someone in a yellow vest circulating – Yad Eliyahu security – the contrast in colors catching my eye. The evening began with Reb Moshe Mona Rosenblum taking his place before the orchestra and leading them in a medley of thunderous marches. While the orchestra played, people found their seats, until the arena was completely full – a picture for all eternity. As with all Dirshu events, things moved along a strict timeline. The moment the orchestra finished playing, the MC announced the chazzan for Ma’ariv, Rav Yirmiyah Damen shlita. Watching more than ten thousand serious bnei Torah daven Ma’ariv together was a special moment for me. Utter silence filled the great hall, as the gigantic kehillah began davening Shemoneh Esrei. Far down below on what is normally the parquet floor of the basketball court, long tables were set up for the gedolim who were taking part in the Dirshu Siyum HaShas. In the middle of the floor a gigantic table was set up. It was covered with a beautiful tablecloth and surrounded by light-colored chairs. In the center of the table were hundreds of flowers. This regal table was set up for the “Nivchanei Kinyan Shas” – the incredible talmidei chachamim who had been tested on the entire Shas – in one sitting!!!! Rav Shimon Galei shlita, one of the premier gedolim of Bnei Brak, began the evening with words of chizuk to an audience thirsting for exactly what he was giving them. He spoke with his trademark earnestness and concluded his remarks with a kapitel Tehillim, which he recited line for line with the audience. After Rav Shimon’s speech was finished, there was an explosion of sound from the stage, where a full adult choir and children’s choir stood and sang the opening song of the evening. Two singers stood on the stairs separating the two sections of the stage, and sang one of the songs made famous on the CD produced by Dirshu for the previous Siyum HaShas sevenand-half years ago. “Dirshu Hashem V’uzo, Bakshu Panav Tamid!!!” While the singers sang and the orchestra played, pictures filled the screen
102 / THE BORO PARK VIEW / January 15, 2020 www.thebpview.com / 718.408.8770
at the back of the stage – pictures of thousands of Dirshu participants taking tests in batei medrashim around the world. Needless to say it was a memorable sight. After a musical interlude that turned into a quasi kumzitz in which every member of the audience participated, the MC introduced Rav Chaim Feinstein shlita and invited him to be misayem the Shas. Here it was, the great moment had arrived and Rav Feinstein recited the final words of Shas with emotion and sincerity. He was followed by the Admor of Alexander shlita who recited the Hadran, and Rav Leizer Yudel Finkel shlita, rosh yeshivah of Mir, who said the Kaddish with great concentration as every person in the gigantic arena stood in their spot . Every “amen” shook the rafters. And then there it was – the final “amen!” The orchestra broke out in magnificent melody. The choirs sang, as did the singers, and best of all, throughout the arena, thousands of Dirshu Yidden – and those who are not yet officially members
of Dirshu – joined hands and began dancing in their places. “Yehay Rava Kadamach…” Picture the scene. Thousands of emotional Yidden dancing in their places and clapping their hands in time to the beat. Picture their faces as they sing. Imagine the sound. It was truly beautiful in every way. A scene of achdus, a true celebration of Torah learning. “Ana, ana, ana, avda d’Kudsha Brich Hu….” Rav Dovid Cohen shlita, rosh yeshivah of the Chevron Yeshivah, was then introduced and he spoke with his regular passion and enthusiasm for Torah and Klal Yisrael. He was followed by the rosh yeshivah of Ponovezh, Rav Boruch Dov Povarsky shlita, who sat beside Rav Dovid Hofstedter shlita, Nasi of Dirshu, and spoke to the crowd as if they were all his talmidim. This was followed by another interlude of joyous song and dance. Reb Motti Steinmetz suddenly appeared and sang two new songs which had been composed especially for the Dirshu Siyumim of 2020. His pure voice rose through the room, to the ceiling and upwards. And that was just the beginning. Because when he sang the famous song “Habein Yakir Li Efraim,” you could feel the excitement rippling through the room at hearing such a special voice, singing such a special tune. For the thousands of bnei Torah who filled the room, taking part in such a unique evening – it wasn’t just about what was happening in the arena. Because every word of Torah and inspiration that they were listening to, every Kaddish, every “amen,” every uplifting song and music note, would remain with them way after they left Yad Eliyahu at the end of the night and returned to their everyday lives.

Rav Nissan Kaplan shlita, rosh yeshivah of Daas Aharon, approached the podium. His speech was extremely powerful. He exhorted the audience to grasp the opportunity of the Dirshu Siyum HaShas to take something onto themselves and to not leave the arena without choosing an additional component for their learning and avodas Hashem. When he finished, the orchestra began playing again and every person in the room rose to their feet and began to dance. The sight of so many people dancing for the honor of Hashem was inspirational in the extreme. The song changed to “Yamim al Yimay Melech,” as Rav Gershon Edelstein shlita, rosh yeshivah of Ponovezh and Rav Chaim Kanievsky shlita entered the arena. The clapping intensified once again and every voice was raised in song. People were jumping in their spots, as the princes of Torah took their places beside Rav Dovid Hofstedter. “Ashrei Ha’am Shekacha Lo, Ashrei Ha’am She’Hashem Elokav!!!”
YOUR CUSTOMERS ARE READING IT. MAKE SURE THEY SEE YOU THERE.
Rav Gershon Edelstein was then introduced and he spoke to the crowd, in his concise style, reminding them of the reason everyone had gathered together at Yad Eliyahu in the first place and what the goal was for such an evening. This was followed by a speech given by Rav Chaim’s son, who read the words and beautiful berachah penned by his illustrious father, especially for this evening. Another letter was read by the son of the Belzer Rebbe shlita on behalf of his father, the Admor of Belz, and was followed by a drashah delivered by Rav Boruch Mordechai Ezrachi shlita, who spoke with all his heart. All in all, the evening had been absolutely incredible on every front. It was a night that nobody there would be able to forget. It was a night of Torah celebration, a night of pride in being a Yid – and every person in the great hall knew it and felt a tremendous debt of thanks to Rav Dovid Hofstedter for everything he constantly does for Klal Yisrael. “Ashreichem, Ashreichem, Ashreichem Yisrael, Talmidei Chachamim!”

Morocco borders both the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea; only two other countries, Spain and France, can claim the same! In clear weather, Moroccans standing at the narrowest point of the Strait of Gibraltar, where the ocean and sea meet, can look across the nine miles of water to see peninsular Spain. The beautiful country of Morocco is just a bit larger than California. Its diverse topography includes desert, forest and mountains, as well as vast expanses of coastal plains. Its famous Atlas mountain range collects rainwater and snow, effectively irrigating its valleys, all while the Sahara Desert to the southeast remains hot and dry. At the same time, its coastal areas remain nice and fertile, and that’s where most Moroccans live. Interestingly, even though only 18% of Moroccan land is farmable, nearly 45% of Moroccans are employed in agriculture. Popular Moroccan exports include many vegetables and fruits, and they’re especially known for their dates, which get transported worldwide. Morocco is also known for its export of paper pulp, cork, and many minerals, chemicals and metals, and they are also the world’s largest exporter of sardines.

Similar to the United Kingdom, the Moroccan government is a Parliamentary Constitutional Monarchy. This means that the king of Morocco is head of state, while the prime minister is the head of the government. Since 1933, Moroccans have been celebrating Throne Day to mark the day their king ascended to the throne. With each new king’s ascension to the
throne, a new day earns this designation. Nowadays, Moroccans celebrate Throne Day on July 30. The United States of American owes Morocco a debt of gratitude for their being the first country to recognize the U.S. as an independent nation — even though the year was only 1777 and the War of Independence was not yet over. Fez, the second-largest city in Morocco (Casablanca ranks first), is lucky enough to have a hat named for itself. Oddly, however, the fez was worn by the Ottomans, who never reigned over Morocco. Instead, the fez got its name for the dye used to color the hat, which was sourced in Fez, Morocco.
North Africa’s indigenous Berbers mostly inhabit the mountain ranges, but their early presence in the country left its mark on the common language. While Morocco’s official languages are Arabic and Berber, people also speak Darija, which is a Moroccan Arabic that was heavily influenced by the Berber language. Moroccan architecture, cuisine and culture in general is a combination of the influences of the many countries bordering the land. Immigrants from European countries like Spain and France, as well as those who came from the Far East or from south of the Sahara Desert, all contributed to the country’s rich culture, which — along with its
picturesque landscape — is why Morocco is such a popular tourist destination. Tourists visiting Morocco should know that snake or monkey charmers performing on the street expect to get paid if their photograph is taken. No showing off for free! And giving directions? There’s a fee for that, too! The most popular Moroccan beverage is green tea served with mint leaves and other ingredients. Moroccans drink this tea all day, at each meal, and offering this beverage to guests is considered proper hospitality. For guests, it is important to note
that refusing a cup is considered very rude! How did green tea gain such popularity in the country? The story goes that in the nineteenth century, some British merchant ships became stranded off the coast of Morocco, and lucky for the Moroccans, the shipmasters saw no point in doing anything other than simply unloading their cargo…

2020: The Ayin Horah Free Year?
Little Yisroel sits proudly on his Tatty’s lap. His face is aglow. Zaidy picks up a scissors and snips off a curl.
LET’S GET THE FACTS STRAIGHT:
Another snip. Another snip. 15 minutes later neat payos grace his face. Yisroel’s face is positively shining. He poses for a picture.
A week later the film is developed and his mother proudly shows off the pictures to all her friends (about 15 in all).
Little Zalmy sits proudly on his Tatty’s lap. His face is aglow. Zaidy picks up a scissors and snips off one curl. His mother snaps a photo. Another snip. Another photo. Another snip. Another photo. 15 minutes later neat payos grace his face.
Zalmy’s eyes are positively shining. His mother posts the pictures. Within an hour they receive 187 Likes. By the end of the day the pics have gone viral.
Einy Yeshuah offers Simcha Packages to protect you and your family of Ayin Horah during a Simcha, so that you can be truly relaxed and joyous.
Now, you judge. Since more publicity allows for greater Ayin Horah, has the likelihood of Ayin Horah grown stronger or weaker by 2019?
