Local Egyptian Jews recall exodus By Sergey Kadinsky The most respected institution in Egypt is not taking sides. Standing by as supporters and opponents of embattled President Hosni Mubarak fight on in Cairo’s Tahrir Square, the soldiers are also guarding the Ben Ezra synagogue from potential looters. “I spoke just now with Mrs. Weinstein, the President of the Cairo Community. She is safe and sound and indicates that army security forces have replaced the police guarding the synagogues,” Yves Fedida of the France-based Nebi Daniel Association wrote in an email. The Jewish community in Egypt numbers only a few dozen individuals, but it has numerous synagogues and cemeteries to maintain. Carmen Weinstein’s chief task is raising funds for their upkeep. “Weinstein raised the money, got the squatters out of the cemetery and identified the graves,” said NYU political science professor Youssef Cohen, 63, who last visited Egypt in 1998. Following the overthrow of the monarchy in 1952, the government’s strong Arab nationalism and opposition to Israel led to a massive exodus of the once sizable community. Under Murabak, Egypt became a major recipient of American aid in return for keeping the peace with neighboring Israel. “Mubarak was a highly westernized man. He wanted to create a modern Egypt, but there was too much poverty and unemployment. That’s what’s fueling the problem,” said Cohen. Cohen said that on his last visit he did not experience overt anti-Semitism, but Continued on page 2
“Israel is on the frontlines.” One on one with Ari Fleischer extremists. And that’s again why it’s such a conundrum.
By David F. Nesenoff David F. Nesenoff: What is going on in Egypt? Do you have some new personal insight? Ari Fleischer: My heart is with the protesters; who doesn’t hope that this leads to freedom and democracy. But my mind is cognizant of recent Middle East history and I’m wary of how this is going to play out. So this is a classic conundrum of foreign policy, American ideals and real politic. DFN: As far as Israel is concerned and the Muslim Brotherhood, there’s certainly a great fear that putting the democracy label on terrorists legitimize certain groups. Is this your understanding? AF: Israel is on the front lines and it has the most to win or lose. When you’re on the front line, even if it’s a cold peace that lasted for 30 years, its something you don’t want to miss. And so the stakes in Israel are much higher than the stakes in the United States. It’s a little easier for Americans to hope for a democracy because we won’t suffer the immediate consequences the way Israel would… if it turns out to be like Iran 1979.
DFN: Some say that President Bush bet on Hamas losing when there was a democratic election and that might have been the wrong call on his part. AF: Or he thought Hamas would be exposed for what they are. And eventually the people of Gaza would throw Hamas out because they weren’t delivering on a better and more peaceful life. That was
Bush’s bet but I don’t think that matters anymore because he’s not in office. I’ve got to say, and I say this as a partisan Republican, Barack Obama has largely handled this well. My view is that the best course for Israel and America is what I call slow and steady. Slowly say goodbye to Mubarak, and steadily push for reform.
DFN: You worked with President Bush as his Press Secretary; would a Republican administration handle the present situation differently? AF: President Bush was vociferous in speaking out for the freedom agenda. And he believes very strongly that left to their own devices, people will seek peace and freedom. Of course when you leave people to their own devices, those devices can get hijacked by Muslim

DFN: On another issue, since you’re an expert on publicity and public relations …in Israel they call it hasbara, there are many who say that Israel has the worst hasbara. Muslim Brotherhood has better hasbara, and Hamas and the Palestinians are better at representing themselves whether it be through Internet or through images. What’s Israel’s problem; is it that simple? AF: Its nonsense if anyone says that Hamas or the Islamic BrotherContinued on page 3

Egyptian WOW DEALS! Crazy Savings on Hot NEW Styles! Jews YEAR END CLEARANCE SALE remember HUGE Continued from page 1 conceded that it was only because he was in contact with a limited segment of the population. “These were secular intellectuals and they were very friendly. My name is Cohen so everyone knew that I was Jewish,” said Cohen. The highlight of his visit was the restored Bassatine Cemetery outside Cairo, where his mother is buried. “She died when I was 5, so I don’t really remember her,” said Cohen. Last year, he published “Odette,” a fictionalized memoir of his childhood exodus to Europe, Brazil, and United States, and his return to visit the grave of the mother he barely knew. The other Egyptian city with a Jewish population, Alexandria is having a tougher time amid the unrest. “All the main police stations in downtown Alex have been torched with some burnt to the ground. Thugs are roaming the streets,” writes Fedida. Without the army and police, the synagogue was watched during the day by the leader of the Alexandria Jewish community, Ben Youssef Gaon, and the synagogue’s Egyptian warden, Abd El Nabi. “We should all recognize the courage it takes to be there, caring at this time,” writes Fedida. The Jewish community in Egypt was once a diverse mixture that included descendants of Spanish Jews who fled the Inquisition, Syrian Jews, and Ashkenazim. Alongside the Jews, there were also Karaites, a Jewish sect originating during the Talmudic period. Most Egyptian Jews fled to Israel, with smaller communities in the United States. After years of documenting the assets confiscated by the Egyptian government, retired banker Joseph Wahed, 75, cofounded Jews Indigenous to Middle East and North Africa (JIMENA), seeking recognition for the suffering endured by Jews expelled from Arab countries. “They confiscated our businesses and apartments. Being Jewish became a criminal offense,” said Waged, who belongs to a Karaite congregation in California. “We could not take our Torah scrolls with us. We had to sneak them out of Egypt.” Among some American Ashkenazi Jews, the sight of crowds chanting for elections and democracy is inspiring even as Jews from Egypt urge caution. Michael Lerner of the liberal Tikkun Magazine wasn’t the only rabbi to offer praise for the protesters. “I was inspired by the coming out of thousands speaking truth to power and advancing personal liberty,” said Rabbi Etan Tokayer of Kingsway Jewish Center in Brooklyn. His wife Esther, a daughter of Syrian and Egyptian Jews disagreed. “My wife thought that my inspiration was naïve and that I did not understand the Arab mentality because [the unrest] could lead to chaos.”

Continued from page 1 hood has better hasbara than Israel. They don’t. Those groups are largely reviled throughout the west. Israel is controversial but not in the same category. This is also a tendency for the Jewish community and certainly for Israelis to be tough on themselves. Which is unfortunate. But Israel’s fundamental problem is that they used to be the David of the region against the Goliath. And in the last two decades or so Israel became the Goliath against the Palestinian David who throws rocks. That more than anything has created the current condition against Israel. In addition to the coldhearted calculations that some leaders in particular Western Europe make about kowtowing to their Arab constituencies at the expense of their Jewish constituencies and at the expense of Israel. DFN: If you were sitting before an Israeli administration, and they wanted to improve their image, are there specific things they should be focused on? AF: I would love to see Israel recognize more than anything else the power of the video. To arm its drones with high-resolution TV cameras. They need to show the world rockets being fired from schools in Gaza, rockets being stored in mosques. They need the video proof. DFN: You mentioned that President Obama is doing a fair job concerning going slowly with Egypt. How’s he doing in general? AF: I think he is whistling past our graveyard of the dead. Sorely lacking form his
State of the Union was a real ring of a bell that our nation is going broke and we’ve got to stop the debt. He ignored it. He gave it lip service. Any temporary political bumps he may get are insignificant compared to whether or not our one leader is leading us on the most important fiscal issue our nation faces.
DFN: What are you doing these days? What are you up to? AF: I’m having a blast. I have my own communications company. Half my clients are corporations and half my clients are sports organizations. I help people with message development strategy.
DFN: Do you think he changes with the wind? With November there was some nuance of change? Is there something coming soon, other than before the next election? AF: My sense is that he is an ideological liberal but he would rather be successful and he will pack in the wind and figure out how to be successful which isn’t very reassuring. I’m much more comfortable with the Ronald Reagan style of elected official. You know who they are and what they stand for.
DFN: Did I notice you had something to do with Tiger Woods recently? AF: I worked for tiger.
DFN: Any thoughts on who the Republicans are going to put up in the next election? Sarah Palin is a name being bandied about. Mitt Romney, Huckabee just came back from Israel. Are these the same old players or is there someone new? AF: The Republican field is absolutely wide open. I would be surprised if Sarah Palin jumps in. I think it’s going to be a battle between the new names, possibly John Thune, Mitch Daniels, Tim Pawlenty. And the old names, Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee. I can see those two groups of Republicans squaring off in the primary. I’m looking for a new face of the Republican Party. I think that would be the most interesting and exciting thing for somebody who is new but of presidential timber to emerge.
DFN: Can it include damage control? AF: It is more about ongoing dissemination of message and avoiding damage control. DFN: Your name is Ari. So what’s your relationship to Judaism? AF: It’s a big part of who I am. My mother is an immigrant to this country. She fled from Hungary in August 1939; she was one of the last to get out. I was raised a Conservative Jew, bar mitzvahed a Reform Jew. While I was in Washington I would also go to Lubavitch services. So I’ve touched a lot of Jewish bases. I’m raising my family as Reform Jews. My religion is important. It’s a big part of my life. DFN: Any specific Jewish values that have caused you to reach success and bring success to other people’s lives? AF: I think it’s caring about others and a willingness to listen. You have to hear what the other side says. I was raised a Democrat and I think a lot of that has to do with Jewish values. I think I have the heart of a liberal and the mind of a conservative. Which is a
pretty good way to be. DFN: Why do Jews tend to be liberal? AF: A good part of it in the northeast, especially among women are social issues where the Jewish community is strongly proabortion and pro-stem cell research. They have an inordinate fear of Christian conservatives. There’s a sense of discomfort with conservatism. DFN: Does this Jewish liberal attraction cause harm concerning support for Israel? AF: There’s a neutrality movement vis-àvis Israel in the Democratic Party. The Jewish community knew that George Bush would stand by Israel through thick and thin. And I don’t think the Jewish community has a strong sense whether Barack Obama would do the same. The base of the Democratic Party on this issue is essentially neutral. It is not pro-Israel. It’s not pro-Palestinian. It is essentially neutral. Which is frightening to me. I became a republican because I believed in Ronald Reagan and peace thru strength. Israel practices peace thru strength every day. The liberal community fears peace thru strength. They’d say Israel just give up the west bank, just do it. You’ll be fine. DFN: If asked, would you entertain putting on your old hat, if a Republican administration came to Washington in the future? AF: Only if it’s Ambassador to Bermuda, but I’m very happy to be retired. I’ve worked in Washington for 21 years and loved it. But my time is done in Washington.
Touro remembers Bernard Lander on his first yartzeit By Sergey Kadinsky Dr. Bernard Lander was one of the longestserving college administrators in the country, leading Touro College from its founding in 1971 until his death at age 94 last February. A rabbi and sociologist by training, he used his Jewish and secular careers to create and nurture a leading institution of learning in the Jewish community. “Judaism has a tradition of universal literacy that has served us well,” said Touro College President Dr. Alan Kadish. “Traditional Judaism also places importance on precedent and respect for tradition, but that does not mean we are static. Each generation produces new scholars.” On the first anniversary of his passing, Touro College honored Dr. Lander with a series of lectures by Tel Aviv Chief Rabbi Yisroel Meir Lau, kicking off on Feb. 3 at Lander College for Women in Manhattan. “This will be a weekend of inspiration as we celebrate the legacy and life of a great Jewish leader,” said Dr. Mark Hasten, chairman of the Touro Board of Trustees. “A man like Dr. Bernard Lander comes along once in a generation, or perhaps once in many generations.” The evening lecture was attended by a number of prominent individuals including Israeli Consul General Ido Aharoni, Orthodox Union President Simcha Katz, and Rabbi Moshe Tendler of Yeshiva University. “We first met when Touro was a dream not yet dreamed and our relationship has grown closer over the years,” said Rabbi Tendler. “His daughter goes to my school and my daughter Michelle teaches at Touro.”

Tel Aviv Chief Rabbi Yisroel Meir Lau speaks at Rabbi Dr. Lander’s yartzeit Rabbi Tendler recalled Dr. Lander’s visits to his Monsey home, coupled with offers to work at Touro. “He’d tempt me to be a dean at one of his new schools, but I have a school.” The keynote speaker, Rabbi Lau, connected the silver trumpets of parshat Terumah to
the legacy of Dr. Lander. “Our nation is not a nation but not for the Torah. How do we do it in the 21st century when we have all the influential communications?” “The trumpets are communicating to call the whole nation to the Torah. We have the
radio, the newspaper, and the magazine. Dr. Lander knew how to blow those trumpets,” said Rabbi Lau. “He was a spiritual giant in his accomplishments.” Chief Rabbi Lau also visited the Lander College for Men and Yeshivas Ohr Hachaim in Queens and concluded the weekend with a fundraiser for the scholarship funds of the Lander Colleges. Hosting the fundraiser at the Lawrence Country Club was Lawrence village mayor Martin Oliner, a member of the Touro Board of Trustees who has also taught at Touro Law School. “Bernie was brilliant. He had an uncanny ability to analyze and understand the most complicated issues,” Oliner wrote in Nasi BeAmcha (A Prince Amongst Your People), a book of essays remembering Dr. Lander published by Touro College in conjunction with the event. In his lifetime, Lander led a college that has grown to 31 locations in 4 states and 5 countries, educating upwards of 18,000 students. But even as Touro expanded, Lander continued to live a modest life. “Bernie was selfless. He treated every dollar of Touro’s as if it were hekdesh,” said Oliner, using the Hebrew term for funds set aside for charitable purposes. Speaking to Lander on a daily basis, Oliner recalled a leader who still took the subway to his modest home in Forest Hills well into his 80s, and flew coach when visiting Touro campuses in Europe and California. “With his perseverance and unrelenting style came a blessing from heaven,” wrote Oliner. “Suggestions that seemed more like smoke and mirrors were blessed with success.”

Ari Fleischer: Frontlines
Three Keys I do believe there is nothing more arrogant than stating that humans control the weather certainly better than at other times in history, but they are not yet zero. We don’t know everything. We can do all kinds of things to restimulate the heart, keep patients alive, and revive those who have flatlined. A machine can keep a person’s organs alive for a significant amount of time (I am not going into the hot debate of defining the end of life). But we cannot bring back to life someone who has been dead for a few vital minutes. And, in the rare case when doctors have given up, done all they could, and the patient “comes back” nonetheless, it is generally noted that some things are in G-d’s hands, as their advent is beyond what human science can explain. And, it goes without saying that resurrection as described in some of the Biblical stories (Elijah, Elisha) is beyond the scope of the abilities of Man. From a religious perspective, I do believe there is nothing more arrogant than stating that humans control the weather and climate more than G-d controls the weather and climate. The Torah certainly makes the case that humans ought to take care of our world to the best of our abilities because we can easily destroy it. And yet there is a seeming contradiction. Bereshit 1:28 has G-d blessing the newly created humans, “...Be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth and subdue it; v’kivshu’ha - have dominion over...every living thing....” At the same time, in Bereshit 2:15 G-d takes the newly created human,”... and placed him in the Garden of Eden l’ovdah ul’shomrah - to cultivate it and to guard it.” In an article about Judaism and the environment, which originally appeared in the OU’s Jewish Action magazine and can now be found elsewhere online, Rabbi Barry Freundel concluded his analysis of the subject thus: “...The true meaning, then, of the Biblical command of ‘subdue the world’ is not to conquer the world by raping and destroying its resources. Its true implication is found in G-d’s other statement to Adam about how to function in the Garden of Eden, i.e. ‘to work it and to watch it.’ Responsible use mixed with sincere concern, progress with restraint, growth and technology with conservation and preservation, is the Torah’s ecological agenda.” That refers to our responsibility. The bottom line remains, however, that G-d is still in charge.

With the abundance of storms that have everybody talking about the weather, one wonders how much the global warming camp can convince their opponents that “we” control the weather. Record snowfalls across the country seem to indicate to me that G-d, and not Hummers or Styrofoam cups, is still in charge. The Gemara (Taanit 2a) certainly concurs with this assessment, when it states, “Rabbi Yochanan said, ‘There are three keys in the hands of G-d that are not entrusted to an agent. They are: the key of rain, the key of conception/childbirth, and the key of revival of the dead.’” While it may be a stretch to include snowstorms in the “key of rain” that G-d controls, I am willing to go out on that limb with the confidence that not too many people will object. The Gaon of Vilna implied from a different passage in Taanit 9a, that there is no concept in Jewish thought that is not hinted to in the Torah. For the source, or hint, to the idea of the keys G-d holds, he looks at ParRabbi Avi Billet shat Tetzaveh, Shmot 28:36 where the Torah, in describing the creation of the Tzitz (forehead-plate) says “…and engrave on it in the same manner as a signet ring, [the words], ‘Holy to G-d.’” In Hebrew, the last four words of this verse are, “Pituchai Chotam Kodesh LaHashem.” The Vilna Gaon takes this phrase to mean, “The manners of ‘CH’T’M’ are distinctly set aside for G-d.” The three letters of the word “Chotam” are an acronym for the three keys the Gemara says are in God’s hands. Chet = “Chaya,” the ability to conceive and give birth to a child. Taf = “T’chiya,” or resurrection. Mem = “Matar,” rain. These three powers are “kodesh la’Hashem,” separate for G-d, and were not touched by any stranger. It is amazing to behold the advancement of science and technology in our world. In a certain sense, we have given ourselves the opportunity to play G-d in so many aspects of our lives. We can fertilize reproductive material in test tubes to implant a viable embryo in a uterus, and we can incubate fetuses, once they’ve developed viable organs and features, to a point that, in some cases, they can live normal lives even if they’ve emerged from the womb at 24 weeks gestation. But, we cannot create the materials that create the embryo. And we cannot replicate those essential first few months in the womb. And as much as we know about medicine, there are still children who do not survive pregnancy, and there are still mothers who do not survive childbirth. The numbers are

Chocolate cake is for dessert The notion that democracy is best for all times and for all circumstances feeds into an unhealthy obesity of trouble. A gang of bank robbers can vote on who will be their leader, who will drive the get-away car, and who will load the guns and blow open the vault. Must their illegalities become appropriate and acceptable simply because there was an election? The one-dimensional evaluation of morality drawn with the simple stroke of the democracy brush is a dangerous picture. And it is one that is all too often promoted by our American flag waving leaders. There is a sense that when given the multiple choices of what should be done, the answer always has to be D: Democracy. This is partly because of the way it nobly sounds and partly because of a fear of the options. But the alternative does not have to be A: Anarchy, B: Belligerence or C: Communism either. When in doubt we should check off E: Educate. Unfortunately teaching and learning takes effort and energy (E and E). Who are these candidates representing the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, Hezbollah, the Palestinian Authority, al-Qa’ida, the Taliban, the Egyptian Islamic Jihad, Fatah, the Abu Nidal Organization, Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, and the Abu Sayyaf Group? Maybe they are not electable and shouldn’t be on the slate, but rather need to be E: Eradicated, Expelled, Expunged, Expired, and Extricated. But the educating of an unbiased world history is not a well-traded commodity in the global marketplace. The masses have an absurd need for an immediate evaluation as to whom is the supposed underdog. Their usual bleeding heart observation is quickly noted and then bingo… a vote is required. And don’t forget to send out Jimmy Carter to make sure the stained blue fingers of the voters are counted and discolored with fairness and equity. Once the great election saga has ceased and the winner is proclaimed then the ‘terrorist’ label is wiped clean. How can he be a murderer of women and children, he was elected as part of a democracy? And so all
become betwixt and befuddled when faced with the Muslim Brotherhood and with Hamas. The universal standards of “We will not negotiate with terrorists!” get filed in a cabinet drawer labeled “But they were elected!” The once band of bloodthirsty brothers is now invited to perform and sing at our wedding. Somehow the only qualification for garnering the nomenclature of democracy is the capability of erecting a voting booth. What further exasperates the boiling caldron of nasty international relations is our comfort level that dictates with whom we fight. You show me an established nation with a cross-eyed monarch, then bye-bye and blow him to bits. But we are gun shy when it comes to a blindly inhumane, international monster without a flag. In fact we’ll assist him with his stump speech. If only the enemy in this war against terror had a seat at the UN, our life would be easier. We would then invade and beat him up. The terrorist chair is not represented in the General Assembly, although there are numerous backsides warming up a place for a few of them to sit and hang their flags. Even if we are unwilling to decimate the terrorists’ very existence, at the very least we shouldn’t push for their democratization leading to their legitimization. How ironic it is that this feigned thrust for the almighty democracy spits in the face of Israel who continues to be the only democracy surrounded by vipers, thugs and rogue nations. Israel, like the United States, lived through a process before reaching its first election. An appetizer of a long deep-rooted history of human justice was ordered. The entrée filled with values and equitable standards was savored stemming from a recipe of morality. And then and only then was the tray presented with the choice of chocolate cake. Democracy. Those who prematurely rush to consume the rich dessert as their entire stable of sustenance are doomed to be unhealthy… and they get sick over everyone around them.

To the Editor: Your article [A story of divine providence] touched me deeply. The Land of Israel and the Children of Israel are one. That captures the simple truth so brilliantly. Hashem picked the right shaliach in you. I also cry when I leave Israel! Welcome and wishing you so much hatzlacha.
To the Editor: When I read your opening paragraph [of A story of divine providence] my throat tightened and my eyes teared. I knew this was going to be good. We have followed this story online since the Helen Thomas incident. It was so good to read the full story, especially to see the guiding hand of the Holy One. I have put The Jewish Star in my Internet Favorites. I, as a Christian, love Israel and the Children of Israel, and I also have several Jewish friends and acquaintances. Your articles will give me good insight. Oh, and your David’s Harp column is hilarious! Thank you, and blessings!

Yankie & Luzer What sect of Judaism are we a part of ?
I thought you knew!
The secret telephone tapes Usually it takes years, maybe decades for the discovery of top-secret documents or recordings to be declassified and released to the general public. But recently a highly confidential taped phone conversation between Washington and Cairo was leaked. The tape begins: “Hosni are you there?” President Barak Obama’s voice can be heard saying. “Oh, Barak Hussein, asalam DAVID’S HARP alekem,” the president of Egypt, Mr. Mubarak, answers. And then Obama counters, “alekem asalam.” Mubarak asks, “So, how are you doing habib, my friend?” Obama hesitates, “Uh, I’m doing fine uh… my friend, but uh… by the way, you’re on the speaker phone, Secretary of State Hillary David F. Nesenoff Clinton is with me.” Mubarak perks up, “Ah, Hillary, how are you?” “I’m concerned President Mubarak, these are very difficult times,” Hillary is all business. “Please give your husband, Bill, my very best regards,” Mubarak offers. “Yes, I will certainly relay to him your sentiments,” Hillary comments in her official tone. Mubarak recalls, “Those
were the days… when Bill used to visit. We had some great times.” Hillary confirms, “Yes I will certainly extend to my husband your fond words. “We had such good times, that Bill of yours is a lot of fun, he’s very charming.” Hilary is quick, “Yes, fun and charming, but we…” Mubarak interrupts, “If my limousine could talk…” President Obama jumps in, “Hosni, it’s important that we talk.” Mubarak agrees, “Yes, yes, but please call me Hose. I am a very informal relaxed man. I am just sitting at the kitchen table in my humble home as my wife bakes bread for our family.” “Listen Hose, we need to get a grasp on what is going on over there with this revolt.” Mubarak assures them, “It’s no big deal; the streets are filled with people very similar to your Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade.” Obama challenges Mubarak, “Sir I think we both know that this situation is of grave consequence to not only your country but to the world.” Hillary interjects, “If I may mention, we are concerned about the safety of your citizens and your security as well.” “Your husband, Bill, was quite a guy, those were some good times; no they were great times. I would love for him to visit again, maybe not right now, but soon all will be good again with better times.” Hillary is losing her patience, “President Mubarak, I will definitely be talking to my husband, but what I am talking to you about are these difficult times right now. We un-
derstand that this revolution might have originated from Facebook, do you have any knowledge or indication concerning how it began?” “Yes, of course,” Mubarak answers with great confidence. “Zuckerberg stole it from the frat rowing team, then hooked up with Justin Timberlake and the rest is history. “No! No! Where did the revolt begin?” Hillary and Obama yell together. Mubarak is calm, “You don’t understand the Middle East and the Arab world. It’s just a disagreement between me and my people. They want to eat everyday and I think they should eat every other month. But this is old news; I have already agreed to hold fair elections in September. And I plan on running for re-election at that time.” Obama is stunned, “You must be kidding me; you plan on running for reelection?” Mubarak confirms, “Yes, for sure, and I already have my ad campaign. I have hired George Stephanopoulos as my manager; he’s put together a great promotion. Get this, ‘vote for me… Hosni Mubarak, the lesser of two evils.’ Or ‘I’m just like the Washington Barak but with a Mu in front of it.’ And how about this one, ‘would you rather have a ruthless, maniacal bloodthirsty leader or my very bad opponents?’ Killer stuff, yes?” Hillary can’t take it, “You have to leave the country; do you have some place to go?” Mubarak answers, “I’m not really sure, I was wondering if Bill still has that cabin in West Virginia?” Hillary is confused, “What cabin? Where?” Obama implores, “You can’t come
to the United States, you should flee to some place in your region.” Mubarak admits, “I’ve been speaking to my good friend Benjamin in Jerusalem.” “Are you out of your mind,” Obama is dumbfounded. “You’re not implying that you think you can go to Israel?” Mubarak explains, “Well, it’s not as difficult as you may think. All I have to do is convert to Judaism, then immigrate under the law of return and move to Petach Tikveh. I’ll get a house, car, cash, and a refrigerator. I can even get an aliyah at the Kotel’s early vatikin minyan. I’m too old for military duty, but maybe I’ll work for Egged Transport securing bullet proof glass and steel reinforcements on the buses headed to Ariel and Kiryat Arba.” Obama challenges Mubarak, “Do you really think this is a viable solution to the problem at hand?” “Well it may not be the optimum plan,” Mubarak confesses. “There are some tenuous factors that might not place this strategy in the best light. It’s going to be a bit of a horse race to see which will happen first, the conclusion of the revolution with my departure or the Israeli government figuring out who can conduct conversions.” Banging at the door can be heard. Mubarak panics, “I think they are here at the palace. They are going to break in and kill me and my family. We are going to have to leave quickly. I must tell my wife to take the breads out of the oven, they will not have enough time to rise…” The tape ends.

Bringing laughter back to kids with cancer Sunrise Day Camps’ year-round programs gives sick children and their families a chance to have fun again Sunrise Day Camp, for children ages 3 to 16, is the onl y dedicated day camp in the nation for children with cancer. Operated by the Barry and F lorence Friedberg JCC, it is situated on the Henry Kaufmann Campgrounds, a 300-acre wooded site in Whea tley Heights in Suffolk County, just minutes from the Nassau County border. The camp is free of charge to all children being treated for cancer or related disorders. It boasts one of the largest private swim complexes in the w orld and miles of wooded, tree-lined recreational areas. Children enjoy indoor air-conditioned shelters, log cabins, wooded campsites, ball fields and courts. Daily activities include swimming, basketball, baseball, volleyball, golf, cookouts and campfires. The campers can also take part in the art studio and music and drama w orkshops. “We bring a sense of normalcy to these children,” said the camp’s executive director, Michele Vernon. “We give them the fun and the laughter tha t was tak en from them because of their illness.”
Sunrise on Wheels is an in-hospital outreach program for children and families who are in a hospital’ s outpatient clinic for all or part of the day. Waiting for checkups, laboratory results and treatments can be a long and difficult process. But children’s faces light up when Sunrise volunteers roll out a rainbo w tie-dye trunk to reveal coloring books, crafts and stickers, hand-held g ames and e ven
Sunrise Day Camp relies on the g enerosity of donors. It will be hosting the fifth annual Friends of Sunrise Coc ktail Party and Auction on March 17 at the Glen Head Country Club. On June 5, the camp’s sixth annual Walk to Help the Sun Rise will be held at the Henry Kaufmann Campgrounds in Wheatley Heights. “We want these f amilies — t he parents, the siblings — to enjoy their children, and we want the children to enjoy their childhood, despite their illnesses,” said Vernon. “They need to see that they are not alone, and there can be some normalcy in their lives.”

The Kosher Critic
You say, “Chorizo” I say, “groundbreaking kosher” D
ing about this is that many life long kosher eaters have never had the opportunity to try things like Chorizo or Borewors Sausages. These unique sausages are usually only available as a kohser product in the regions where they are culturally popular but thanks to Jack’s Gourmet they can now be purchased at most kosher grocery stores. Currently there are five different sausages offered. They are Chorizo, Bratwurst, Boerwors, Hot Italian and Sweet Italian. Each of these sausages is amazing in their own way and contain nothing but meat and spices. No artificial ingredients or fillers. Soon Jack’s Gourmet will be releasing a lamb Marguze and they are looking into creating a poultry based line. Providing these items to the kosher market is quite honestly groundbreaking. Finally traditionally ethnic dishes with these ingredients can be authentically reproduced. Nothing illustrates this better then the fact that The Prime Grill one of New York’s most prominent kosher restaurants now offers a gumbo made with Jack’s Gormet Chorizo. Personally I used a combination of the Italian sausage and the Chorizo to make a knock your socks off Jambalaya last Shabbat. I think it is safe to say that Jack’s Gourmet will have a prominent place in the homes of kosher consumers everywhere

uring the hustle and bustle of Kosherfest is it easy to get caught up in the crowd and miss something. The narrow aisles are always packed with press, distributors and food enthusiasts and so often times in order to deal with the crowd you move more quickly then you should and end up overlooking something that is truly spectacular. It is unfortunate that this year because of that exact reason I missed my first opportunity to try Jack’s Gourmet Sausages the best new kosher product on the market. Lucky for me Jack’s Gourmet’s Operations Manage, Dr Alan Broner, is dedicated to making sure that people get Zechariah Mehler the chance to try his product and so several months later at a tasting in Teaneck I would find out that the product, Susie Fishbein called Kosherfest 2010 best in show, was not just one of the best new products but probably one of the finest kosher products currently available. Jack’s Gourmet is a company that specializes in providing high end deli meats and sausages. A relatively new company, Jack’s is dedicated to offering the kind of products that until now has been almost non existent in the kosher world. Since they opened Dr. Broner has been

From the Heart of Jerusalem
One under the sun By Samuel Fisher The four-thirty morning air felt like icewater on my sleepy flesh. The Old City stones slumbered all around me, and above me stretched a starry nighttime sky. Not a soul stirred in the square as I made my way bit by bit. As I approached the Wall, inarticulate murmurs of prayer wafted into my ears. Deep within the walls of the sleeping city lay a core long since awake, pulsating with spiritual energy. My footsteps were the only sound as I turned the last corner and the Kotel came into view. Before me stood a mass of Jews gathered to pray. My step quickened as I hurried to join the community. I entered the prayer area and started wrapping my tefilin with the large group. There was not a trace of daytime in the sky. But as we began the morning blessings, a pink haze was just barely beginning to paint a watercolor hue over the horizon. With more clarity than ever before, I felt the entire earth rotating under me and carrying the city slowly into the sun’s rays. The moon powerfully reflected the sunlight from millions of miles away. The colossal planetary motions became tangible and apparent. Nature was unfathomably mighty. The Chazzan led the group with a thick and penetrating voice. I was engrossed in my siddur, carefully following his every word and mouthing along with him. Gathered in a place sacred to all of our ancestors, praying with the same faith to the same God, Jews from all different backgrounds unified in prayer.
But behind I heard someone struggling to keep up with the group. The pace of prayer was particularly important because we intended to say the Amida service precisely with the sunrise. But eventually this man behind me was so far behind the group that his prayer seemed entirely distinct from ours. Most striking was that despite his aloofness, he prayed with vigorous volume. As hard as I tried to focus on my words, his shameless voice was impossible to ignore. I lost my place time again due to his persistent discordance. As we proceeded, the lagging prayer only grew louder. I was relieved when we reached the Kaddish, where the congregation recited in unison. Here I heard the masses join in one and overpower the lone davener. With each word I said, I felt the mighty backing of a universal community behind me. I was enjoying the single voice of the group gathered at the spiritual center of the world. I could hardly believe when I heard the dissenter still davening aloud after the Kaddish finished. He deliberately isolated himself from the entire group by insisting on his own pace. I was deeply disturbed that this davener seemed to have no interest in the rest of us. What is Judaism without the community? And suddenly the dissenter was reciting the Chazzan’s Kaddish. Now I understood. I looked up from my siddur and saw that gathered behind me was a group huddled around a second Chazzan. With slow, pained reluctances, my eyes continued to wander and I saw many, perhaps six other minyanim dispersed across the courtyard. I
listened closely and heard them each reciting distinct parts of the service. How wrong I had been. In this one place, universal Jewry was not united but blatantly fragmented. As sunrise approached, “Shema Yisrael Hashem Elokainu, Hashem Echad” rang in my ears over and over as the minyanim advanced separately. I heard a once harmonious symphony painfully distorted by offset parts. The words drummed in my ears in monotonous competition. Individuals were yelling the pre-Amida blessings. The many voices rang in cacophony as everyone rushed to catch the sunrise. There was jumbled disarray. Heartpounding anticipation became fury and chaos. Each man aloud to himself. Rising tones quickened. The masses erupted, “Ga’al Yisrael!” And suddenly, silence. Dead silence struck the pandemonium instantly and uniformly as the hundreds of men come together in soundless climax. All was still as the first sunrays
stretched over the horizon. Out of the depths of dissonance emerged a unity stirring in its finality. For although the minyanim gathered disjointedly, God only created one sun for us to share. That morning I saw that unity is rooted in shared experience. It takes a phenomenon of such grand consequence and scale as the sunrise to bring the masses together. What we forget is that God shows us the sunrise every single day. Much too often entire communities get so involved in their own davening paces that they forget to look up and catch the light. Samuel Fisher grew up in Newton, Massachusetts and graduated from Maimonides School in 2010. He is spending the year studying in Yeshivat Orayta in the Old City of Jerusalem after which he will attend Harvard College.
ARI’S INSURANCE ASSURANCE Hi Ari, Aside from increasing my deductibles or reducing coverage, how can I decrease my auto insurance premium (my auto policy is already combined with my homeowners policy)?
• A Modern Orthodox Ivrit B’Ivrit Limudei Kodesh Program • An outstanding General Studies Curriculum
Thank you, Rachel R.
Our 1st grad ers receive their first Siddur
Hi Rachel, The following three solutions may help:
• Dedicated and nurturing faculty • Quality Jewish education with Great Neck educational standards, grades Toddler-8th • Ivrit B’Ivrit Judaic Studies program for learners at all levels Technologically
1. Many auto insurance carriers offer the option of paying your entire premium in full at the time of the policy renewal. If you are financially able to do so, you may be entitled to a premium reduction of approximately 10% or more.
2. If both you and your husband have not completed a defensive driving course in the last three years, you can now do so online at your convenience: https://harmonia.dmv.state.ny.us/pirp/. That would reduce your liability and collision premiums by 10% as well. 3. Lastly, you may review with your agent to confirm that you are receiving all possible credits that you are entitled to (alarm, ABS, airbags, daytime running lights, multi-vehicle discount, homeowners credit, etc). Many times, insurance carriers do not have access to new vehicle information and do not provide you with the proper credits, which may decrease your rate by more than 5%.
To arrange for a personal tour, please call Rabbi Yeshayahu E. Greenfeld, Dean at (516) 487-8687 ext. 136. Rabbi Jeffrey Kobrin, Middle School Principal • Mr. Randolph Ross, General Studies Principal Mrs. Elana Helfgott, Director of Early Childhood

Opinion Egyptian Opposition Leader Mohamed El Baradei --Is He “Good For the Jews?”
s of this writing there is only one definite result of the Egyptian protests: as of September 2011, Hosni Mubarak will be out of office. The choices to replace Mubarak are many. But the sad truth is unless someone from the ranks of the Egyptian military replaces Mubarak, the Muslim Brotherhood will probably control whoever is chosen to lead the government (Nasser, Sadat and Mubarak all came from the military). POLITICO A potential canTO GO didate to run a postrevolt Egypt is opposition leader Mohamed El Baradei. If one is to believe the propaganda streaming from mainstream media, El Baradei is a moderate who will continue Egypt’s close ties with the United States and Israel. However El Baradei has never been particularly friendly to the U.S. or Jeff Dunetz Israel, and is making overtures to the Muslim Brotherhood. El Baradei’s newfound friendship with extreme terrorist elements in his country is not surprising when one realizes that this is the man who, during his term in the United Nations, single-handedly delayed the imposition of sanctions on Iran for at least three years, allowing the rogue regime to get much further along the process before facing the (tepid) anger of the world. First appointed to his position as Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in 1997, El Baradei’s real entrance into the world stage was in 2002
when he argued against the US invasion of Iraq. Later that year, when the UN’s attention turned to Iran’s nuclear program, El Baradei became a more vociferous opponent of the West who did everything he could to protect the Iranian regime. From 2002 to 2005, the quarterly IAEA Iran reports contained details of violations, obstruction of inspector’s visits, important inconsistencies between official claims and the results of tests from samples taken from various facilities, and other forms of noncompliance. In each case the final assessment prepared and signed by El Baradei absurdly concluded the mountain of evidence did not demonstrate Iran was seeking nuclear weapons. This process delayed imposition of sanctions until Iran was much further along in the process. Eventually, even the reluctant countries; Russia, China, and India recognized the overwhelming evidence, rejected El-Baradei’s confusing assertions, and voted in September 2005 to officially start the sanctions process. That didn’t stop El Baradei; in 2008 the Wall Street Journal accused him of trying to hamstring sanctions against Iran: “Just weeks after President George Bush toured the Middle East to build Arab support for pressure on Tehran, Mr. ElBaradei appeared on Egyptian television on Feb. 5 to urge Arabs in the opposite direction, insisting Iran was cooperating and should not be pressured… They cheer his self-imposed mission — to hamstring U.S. efforts to constrain Iran’s program, whether or not the regime is violating its non-proliferation obligations or pursuing nuclear weapons.” (ElBaradei’s Real Agenda 2/25/08) In August of 2009 El Baradei was accused by Israel and France of hiding evidence that

Iran was pursuing a nuclear weapon. Citing “senior Western diplomats and Israeli officials”, Haaretz reported that the evidence had been submitted to the IAEA in a secret annex written by its inspectors in Iran and signed by the head of the IAEA team in Tehran. Officials from the US, France, Britain and Germany had been pressing El Baradei to include the material in the report that was to be released at the next IAEA’s general conference, but it was never released. Later that year it was discovered Iran had built a secret nuclear plant, instead of scheduling an immediate inspection, El Baradei scheduled it for about a month down the road, giving Iran a big time window to “clean the joint up for company”. When the IAEA head arrived in Iran for the inspection one of the first things he did was hold a press conference announcing that Israel, not Iran was the leading threat to peace in the Middle East. For all that hard work protecting Iran, this “moderate” resistance leader was well rewarded. According to a September 2010 report in the Egyptian newspaper Al Youm Al Sabeh: “In a communication to the Attorney General of Egypt, Dr. Yasser Najib Abdel Mabboud, has accused Dr. Mohamed ElBaradei, former Director General of International Atomic Energy Agency and a candidate in the Egyptian presidential elections, of receiving funds exceeding $7 million (US) from Iran’s leadership as support for ‘political re-
form in Egypt.” The “moderate” leader made a Meet the Press appearance on Super Bowl Sunday and seemed to equivocate on the Egypt/Israeli peace treaty, an obvious gesture to the Muslim Brotherhood who has said they want to cancel Camp David: “It’s not just dependent on Egypt… It also depends on Israel. Israel should not continue to apply a policy of force, vis-a-vis the Palestinians, should agree to what everybody knows, that Palestinians have the right to establish a state similar to what the proposal of former...” El Baradei spent most of his UN career doing all that he can to blunt the U.S.-led efforts to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons even to the extent of hiding evidence that proved Iran’s intentions and trying to deflect blame on Israel. If his recent association with the Muslim Brotherhood and his continuing relationship with the radical government of Iran are any indication, El Baradei will not be a “friend of the Jews,” living here in the United States or in Israel.
El Baradei’s new- found friendship with extreme terrorist elements in his country is not surprising

TERMS OF SALE Such tax liens shall be sold subject to any and all superior tax liens of sovereignties and other municipalities and to all claims of record which the County may have thereon and subject to the provisions of the Federal and State Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Civil Relief Acts. However, such tax liens shall have priority over the County’s Differential Interest Lien, representing the excess, if any, of the interest and penalty borne at the maximum rate over the interest and penalty borne at the rate at which the lien is purchased. The Purchaser acknowledges that the tax lien(s) sold pursuant to these Terms of Sale may be subject to pending bankruptcy proceedings and/or may become subject to such proceedings which may be commenced during the period in which a tax lien is held by a successful bidder or the assignee of same, which may modify a Purchaser’s rights with respect to the lien(s) and the property securing same. Such bankruptcy proceedings shall not affect the validity of the tax lien. In addition to being subject to pending bankruptcy proceedings and/or the Federal and State Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Civil Relief Acts, said purchaser’s right of foreclosure may be affected by the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery and Enforcement Act(FIRREA),12 U.S.C. ss 1811 et.seq., with regard to real property under Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation(FDIC) receivership. The County Treasurer reserves the right, without further notice and at any time, to withdraw from sale any of the parcels of land or premises herein listed. The Nassau County Treasurer reserves the right to intervene in any bankruptcy case/litigation where the property affected by the tax liens sold by the Treasurer is part of the bankruptcy estate. However,it is the sole responsibility of all tax lien purchasers to protect their legal interests in any bankruptcy case affecting their purchased tax lien, including but not limited to the filing of a proof of claim on their behalf, covering their investment in said tax lien. The Nassau County Treasurer and Nassau County and its agencies, assumes no responsibility for any legal representation of any tax lien purchaser in any legal proceeding including but not limited to a bankruptcy case where the purchased tax lien is at risk. The rate of interest and penalty at which any person purchases the tax lien shall be established by his bid. Each purchaser, immediately after the sale thereof, shall pay to the County Treasurer ten per cent of the amount for which the tax liens have been sold and the remaining ninety per cent within thirty days after such sale. If the purchaser at the tax sale shall fail to pay the remaining ninety per cent within ten days after he has been notified by the County Treasurer that the certificates of sale are ready for delivery, then all amounts deposited with the County Treasurer including but not limited to the ten per cent theretofore paid by him shall, without further notice or demand, be irrevocably forfeited by the purchaser and shall be retained by the County Treasurer as liquidated damages and the agreement to purchase shall be of no further effect. Time is of the essence in this sale. This sale is held pursuant to the Nassau County Administrative Code and interested parties are referred to such Code for additional information as to terms of the sale, rights of purchasers, maximum rates of interest and other legal incidents of the sale. This list includes only tax liens on real estate located in the Town of Hempstead. Such other tax liens on real estate are advertised as follows: TOWN OF HEMPSTEAD

I am a mother of two as well as a kindergarten teacher. I have come to realize that I use up all of my energy and patience throughout the day to deal properly with my 20 rambunctious students. However, that leaves my 2 little ones at home getting the short end of the stick. By the time I get them home and walk in the door, I have had it, and I have little to no patience to deal with my own kids. I can’t quit my job, although I do love it, and need it financially, but I don’t like how I am able to keep it all together during the day, only to let it all out at my kids in the evening. What to do? -Mean Mommy
Dear M.M., Sorry, but I really can’t bring myself to call you “Mean”, so I had to change your alias to “M.M.” You know, that actually may be one of the solutions here—M&Ms. Seriously, you pop them in your mouth on the way home from work so that you are not famished enough to take a chunk out of the granite with your teeth (or in my case, Formica) when you walk in the door. Here’s a little trick that I use, especially on Fridays. When I leave the office, and, to use my sister’s expression, can feel my stomach eating itself, I splurge on a quick slice of pizza to go, wolf it down on the way home and greet the little ones with cheese-induced tranquility. My advice to moms who are having trouble holding it together for their kids is this: eat, sleep and use the bathroom. That’s right, the bathroom. Needing to use the bathroom can make a person more likely to lose their temper. So make sure that your basic needs are met before you attempt to meet the needs of others. Most working moms give their all at work and have very little reserve left when they come home. Problem is, your students are likely pushing the same buttons as your kids, so your tolerance for whining is probably lower than a woman who’s working in a nonschool setting. Well, except for therapists, but a 38-year old whine is really on a different pitch than
that of a 5-year old. But back to you. What can you change at work? I’m talking small changes. Like delegating more to your assistants. Or, dare I say, (and this is very hard for me to write, since I send my preschoolers off knowing that their amazing teachers beam at them the whole day), don’t be such a great teacher. Don’t be a bad teacher, but don’t try to put on your best face or your best “Five little monkeys” voice. Give a weaker smile, sprinkled with some pearly whites. Or, you can even look into an administrative position for next year—you’ll still be in the setting that you enjoy, but you won’t be in the trenches of it. Now let’s explore the changes we can make at home. Try to get involved in their imaginary play. It will keep things lighter for you and not give them an opportunity to disobey you. It doesn’t take much. Your son is setting up stuffed animals, ask how much a ticket to his zoo costs. Your daughter is cradling her doll, give the doll a kiss and say, “How old is your baby?” And then go make yourself a cup of tea (or in my case, a milkshake). Research has proven (and I’m talking about the research that is reliable and valid), three important components to a good parent for young children are: love with limits, emotion coaching (as in stay away from, “Don’t cry”, and change that to, “Oy, you’re so upset.”) and getting involved in their imaginary play. When we come home, and our focus is just to feed the kids and get them into bed, we are missing the moment. The moment of fostering a relationship with them. And now is when they are primed for it. Two other pieces of advice: 1. If you are married, work on that relationship more than keeping your cool with your kids. To give an extreme example, research is only now discovering an effective way to mitigate child abuse. And that is when the mother and father are happy with each other. 2. If the tide is still against you, consider Zoloft along with those M&Ms… -Aviva Aviva Rizel is a Marriage and Family Therapist in private practice who can be reached at AvivaRizel.MFT@gmail.com.

North Shore Hebrew Academy High School
Celebrates our Intel Semifinalists Jonathan Nachman & Sarah Toledano TWO NORTH SHORE HEBREW ACADEMY HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS NAMED AS INTEL SCIENCE TALENT SEARCH SEMIFINALISTS
Jonathan Nachman and Sarah Toledano, seniors at North Shore Hebrew Academy High School in Great Neck, have been named as Semifinalists in the 2011 Intel Science Talent Search. Often called the “Nobel Prize for High School Students,” the Intel STS is one of America’s most prestigious science research competitions for high school seniors. Semifinalists and their schools each receive $1,000. The 40 Finalists of the 2011 Intel STS will be announced on January 26, 2011. These students will travel to Washington, D.C. in March to compete for over $630,000 in awards. Jonathan’s project was titled “Green Micropatterning: Stamping Candida antarctica /ipase% onto Polyİcaprolactone .” His research produced a completely new and environmentally friendly way to produce microprocessors. Sarah’s research, titled “Strychnine Distinguishes between Two Populations of Į1 Glyince Receptors in H(. Cells” determined a way to distinguish between two populations of nerve receptors—information which may prove vital to the development of more effective and safer anesthetics. This is the second year in a row that North Shore Hebrew Academy High School has had multiple winners in this renowned competition and the fifth out of six years with a semifinalist.
