Brooklyn College Controversy:

Orthodox students and America’s changing campus By Bayla Sheva Brenner

Ohel’s Bais Ezra home on Arlington in Cedarhurst, home to 5 resident young men, was destroyed by Sandy.

Ohel:

Cedarhurst home to be rebuilt By Malka Eisenberg The Cedarhurst house with the beige siding, white portico and red front door had become a home, set up for the special needs of its residents and became a fixture of the neighborhood but Hurricane Sandy swept it away. The Ohel Bais Ezra home for young men on Arlington Road was, for the most part, destroyed by the October storm. Its five resident young men with developmental disabilities, aged 18 to 21, were evacuated the Sunday before the storm and have been temporarily relocated to an assistant living center in Boro Park. The Regency graciously took the five young people in, providing them with their

Despite protests and outrage from Jewish students, community members and politicians, Brooklyn College hosted a BDS event, a group promoting boycotts, divestments and sanctions against Israel , last Thursday. The event was officially endorsed by the college’s political science faculty. Despite the controversy, the show went on, and the endorsement remained. And so does a question. If a college department officially sanctions speakers who are on record calling for the elimination of the Jewish State, can a clearly identifiable Jewish student expect to be treated fairly? Could this jeopardize an Orthodox student’s academic career? “Students have expressed fears about going to political science classes,” says Rabbi Reuven Boshnack, 37, the Orthodox Union’s Seif Jewish Learning Initiative on Campus (JLIC) rabbi at Brooklyn College. “Some have stopped attending; some will drop the courses. The students expressed that they feel alienated by the college and administration.” Brooklyn College is one of 16 campuses across the United States and Canada where JLIC rabbinical couples, as part of the Hillel office professional team, serve as Jewish educators, role models and community organizers on campus, providing a Torah haven for Orthodox Jewish students on campus. Rutgers University faced a similar situation last year. According to Rabbi Akiva Dovid Weiss, 33, JLIC rabbi at Rutgers, an anti-Israel campus group called BAKA, affiliated with the Students for Justice in Palestine, ran an event on Holocaust Remembrance Day called “Never Again for Anyone,” comparing the Palestinians to the

However, in Rutgers’ case, no particular university department gave the event its explicit stamp of approval, raising the question: Could last week’s Brooklyn College faculty-endorsed event set a new precedent? “We tried to approach the [political science] department and help them realize their mistake,” says Melanie Goldberg, 21, a journalism major in her senior year

at Brooklyn College, and an active JLIC member for four years. “They refused to answer our emails and phone calls.” She says that many of her professors feel free in class to make anti-Israel statements. She recalls a history professor deciding to skip over the Holocaust, rather than cover it. “He said, ‘Everyone knows what happened already; it’s not necessary to teach it,’” says Goldberg. “I asked him how do you know Continued on page 3

Continued from page 1 own floor, but the feeling of displacement continues. “It was a great home,” said Laurie Adler, a parent of one of the young men. “It was not just a house or a place to live, but an established home for these boys. They are teenage boys, old enough to leave home.” She noted that they are local boys and an integral part of the Five Towns community. They contribute, she added, and they “have what to give and have delightful personalities. The home made them part of the community where their families can see them.” She explained that homes for the developmentally disabled are “usually not frum and are far away” from the families, and the families thus can’t see them often and that dislocation is “harsh.” With the Ohel Bais Ezra home here, said Adler, “They can be part of the same community as the parents, make lives for themselves, and have a quality of life. They all have Jewish identities.” The home is “carving a space for this demographic within the Jewish community. It’s a tremendous blessing. They can remain in touch with their families integrated in the community.” She pointed out that they knew their neighbors, went to the shuls and are part of the “fabric of Jewish life in the Five Towns. They are very much missed.” She is very grateful that the assisted living facility took them in, but pointed out that it’s “not meant for teenage boys” and that they have to commute to school or jobs. She pointed out that it’s hard for the parents to see them and the quality of life for them is down. The Bais Ezra home was specifically outfitted for the needs of the residents, explained Lisa Sheinhouse, Assistant Director of OHEL Bais Ezra’s Residential Programs. The home was set up with communications devices. There are pictorial schedules for each boy, using pictures so they know what to expect since the residents, she said, have “limited communication skills, so (with the pictures) they know the routine.” She pointed out that the assisted living facility at the Regency was

The staff members are trained by OHEL to work with the boys and many have worked with the developmentally disabled before, said Sheinhouse. All five homes in the Five Towns area, Hewlett, Woodmere, Laurence, Cedarhurst, Far Rockaway, were in evacuation zones and were evacuated before the storm. “It is their home,” said Sheinhouse. “They live there, they play, they have fun recreational activities; they form a family. They come home from school and relax, the staff showers them, gives them their medication, gets them ready for bed. They have a cook and the more fuller functioning help prepare side dishes and salads. They learn yoga and do arts and crafts. Staff is there 24 hours a day, seven days a week.” The idea for the home was initiated in 2007. They started working on the house in April 2008 and it was set up and opened in September 2008. By December all five residents were in their new home. “We hope that in the next two months we will move into a

home in Hewlett temporarily,” she said. “Initially we didn’t think that it was that bad,” said Moshe Hellman, OHEL’s president. “We didn’t make an issue of it the first week or two. But then we saw that it had too much mold and damage. We need to start on it ASAP. We need the approval of the State. They have to look over the plans. They don’t move very quickly. The Board of OHEL approved the rebuilding to go forward.” Two of the boys had rooms on the main floor and 98% of their belongings were destroyed in the storm, said Sheinhouse. The specially outfitted sensory room was on the second floor and that along with some of the belongings of the boys on the second floor was not destroyed. But much was, including personal photographs, the playroom downstairs, DVDs, CDs, therapeutic equipment on the main floor, special games for feelings and emotions, toys, arts and crafts projects, a special educational computer donated by Gruss and a touch screen computer for the boys who can’t use a mouse. “Gone,” said Sheinhouse. “The special carpeting and flooring, bathrooms without hard edges, special chairs to facilitate standing from a sitting position, all has to be replaced.” She said that she is not sure what will be

done with the house but that an engineering study is being done. She is certain that the home will be raised and that they will be rebuilding in the same location. “That’s our home, we haven’t reached a decision as to how we’re rebuilding. It’s walking distance to every family in that area. We are part of the community. They miss them. The higher functioning are aware, the others are not. They see that they are not home, that they are not seeing their families as much. They are aware that something has changed and not for the better.” She said that there is progress, that they are working with FEMA, insurance and the Office of People with Developmental Disabilities. Sheinhouse thanked the girls from SKA High School for girls for raising money for them and for the day that the SKA girls took the five young men with their siblings and families on an outing to Fun Station. “The SKA girls have been wonderful,” she said. “They raised a lot of money for them and presented them with toys.” Sheinhouse expects “at least a year of rebuilding” before they can return to their home in Cedarhurst. “It’s very devastating,” said Adina Wertman, the mother of one the developmentally disabled boys displaced from the Cedarhurst home. “The boys are very far from the neighborhood. We want them back in the neighborhood as soon as possible and back to their normal routine.” She said that it will be better when they can return to a normal school, bus and home routine, that have been disrupted by the move. “We appreciate the support of the community when reaching out to help get these boys back home,” she added. “It’s a tremendous blessing,” said Adler, “thank G-d that they are safe; that’s more than a lot of people can say. We want them back. We can make choices for ourselves but we are responsible for their quality of life.” “The two higher functioning residents say they want to go home a million times,” said Sheinhouse. “They say, ‘I want it back to normal.’”

Orthodox students at America’s changing campus Continued from page 1 everyone knows? He said, ‘Everyone in this room knows.’ And that was it.” It’s not exactly the academic milieu former Brooklyn College attendees recall. “My parents were astonished,” says Melanie Goldberg. “My mother, who was born in Israel, graduated from Brooklyn College and can’t believe what’s going on.” Brooklyn College alumnus Alan Dershowitz, now a renowned Harvard Law professor, author and political commentator, concurs. “It’s not the way it was when I was growing up,” he says when interviewed. “It’s more difficult to be pro-Israel on a college campus today. Being perceived as pro-Israel on many college campuses today is dangerous to the career of a student.” “Brooklyn College’s political science department will be losing some outstanding students and minds from its class rooms,” says Rabbi Menachem Schrader, JLIC’s founding director, concerned that young Jewish men and women in Brooklyn may have to reconsider going into the political science field, or look to other CUNY campuses for their education. “The president of Brooklyn College has been supportive of Jewish activities and Hillel on campus; JLIC as part of Hillel is

no exception to this overall support,” Rabbi Schrader said. “Backing the Political Science department on their decision was an unfortunate mistake. Our students will find worthy professors to study under; they will just have to search a little harder.” “Our voices need to be heard,” says Rabbi Boshnack, who called JLIC’s partnership with Hillel a unified Jewish force. “Academia could move as far to the left as they want, but they are not going to find a podium to speak from, at least where Orthodox or any Jews are [listening]. We made it clear that this is unacceptable. If you want to engage in dialogue, that’s one thing, but if you want to spew hate, that’s something else.” Rabbi Boshnack advises his students to follow the bold words of someone who blazed this path before. “Rabbi Shlomo Freifeld of blessed memory use to tell his students, when you’re on a college campus, you can’t be made out of Jell-O,” he relates. “A professor is just a guy with a Ph.D, Masters, or BS. His job is to impart information, not to spout propaganda. You know what you believe; don’t be afraid to challenge untruths. [And finally], in the true academic tradition, read what you’re reading, but also –think about it.” Hillel and JLIC plan to use last week’s up-

setting event as an opportunity to teach students about the Arab/Israeli conflict, as well as defining academic freedom as it applies to freedom of speech. “You can’t equate the spewing of hatred with academic freedom,” says Rabbi Boshnack. “Otherwise, you are moving back to Goebbels from Hitler’s regime. When you repeat a lie enough times, everyone believes it; even you start to believe it.” Rabbi Boshnack also plans to teach a course on RavAbraham Isaac Kook’s works, dealing with the role of the modern State of Israel as it relates to Jewish destiny on an

individual and communal level. “I want to show that our inner longing to have a nation, and the desire to defend it against the libel of other nations, is not just about wanting a land – a place to be,” he says. “That feeling of connection to Israel comes from the Jewish soul, from the very depths of who we are.” On and off the campus.

Opinion Exclusive: The REAL reasons Obama is going to Israel (satire)

T

he news that President was going to Israel sometime in March was surprising to some (myself included). After all he already won the election without going to Israel during his first term, he did all he could to demonize the Jewish State ever since he became president, and lets face it his recent picks to senior positions in his administration, John “Why The Long Face” Kerry, Chuck “That Dammed Jewish Lobby” Hagel, and John “Its not Jerusalem POLITICO its al-Quds” Brennan TO GO all have questionable records on Israel. On top of that there is no love lost between Obama and Israeli PM Netanyahu. In fact, Obama did his best to make sure Bibi Netanyahu lost the recent election (he failed). My liberal friends tell me Obama is going to Israel because the love and support Jeff Dunetz he has for the Jewish State and he wants to right the wrong of not visiting this important ally his first term. Other reports say President Obama will deliver an unequivocal message to the Israeli leadership during his March visit that it must abandon all talk of a military strike on Iranian nuclear targets and support Washington’s diplomatic efforts with Tehran (at least that’s what Israel’s leading daily Yedioth Aranoth and other sources reported earlier this week. Needing to get the real answer, I did what I usually do with perplexing questions such as this-- sent my Cousin Ben the Spy (his mother wanted him to go to law school, but that is a story for a different day). Ben does some moonlighting for me at times, especially around Pesach (he come to my house for the Seder and wants to make sure his matzo balls come from the batch of hard ones). So I sent Ben to find out the real reason Obama was visiting the holy land. Ben was the perfect man for the job. When he was in college, he spent his summers on a rig in the middle of the Jellied Sea fishing for Gefilte fish. I asked Ben to sneak into the White House

and find out the real reason Obama felt the need to visit Israel now. To get unrestricted access to the White House, Ben disguised himself as the officer of the AFL-CIO who’s responsibility was to recruit illegal aliens into the union and it was there he was able to meet and question the president’s number one adviser, the Teleprompter of The United States (TOTUS). Within twenty-four hours Cousin Ben the spy and he came back with the information (he also came back with a some silverware from the White House kitchen-- but I made him go back and return those pieces). Rather than come back with only one reason for the trip, Ben came back from 1600 Pennsylvania Ave with an entire list of reasons.

From the Desk of President Obama’s TOTUS Reasons I am sending Obama To Israel •Cheap Gifts-Daughter Sasha is approaching her 12th birthday and has 10 Bar/ Bat Mitzvahs to go to in the next year. •Passover begins the evening of March 25th; it’s obvious that Obama wants to pick up some good Kosher for Passover desserts for the annual White House Passover Seder. •Chuck Hagel doesn’t want to go. As part of accepting the Secretary of Defense position, Chuck Hagel made Obama promise he wouldn’t have to visit Israel (apparently he is intimidated by Jews). •It worked for Egypt. Soon after he was elected the first time, Obama went to Egypt. Three years after the Egyptian government was overthrown and an Islamist (Muslim Brotherhood) government took-over. Obama hopes his visit will do the same to the Jewish State. •To Pick up T-Shirts for CIA Nominee John Brennan. Brennan who has called Jerusalem al-Quds wants Obama to pick him up a t-shirt when he visits Ramallah. Something cute such as “My President visited alQuds and all I got was this lousy t-shirt.” •His Annual Check-up. Even Obama’s health costs have gone up because of Obamacare, he is hoping he can get a physical more cheaply in a country with so many Jewish Doctors. •The Flotus wants to go shopping. Apparently Michelle Obama is tired of shopping in Europe, Brazil and other places she has

THE JEWISH

traveled [with or without the POTUS]. She plans to take some friends and shop. Note: This one I find hard to believe, Michelle Obama would NEVER use hundreds of thousand of taxpayer dollars just to go shopping in a foreign country, Wait she did that with her Brazil trip--Never mind. •CPAC. The Annual gathering of conservatives in Washington D.C., CPAC (the Conservative Political Action Conference) is midMarch. Obama believes conservatives have cooties (which is why he never negotiates with them), and wants to be out of town so he doesn’t catch anything. •Bad Back. The President’s back has been bothering him and he can’t bow as he had done with so many other leaders. There is no way he would bow to an Israeli leader. •To Scold Bar Rafaeli. It’s no coincidence the announcement of his trip was made right after the Super Bowl. The president wanted to meet the Israeli super-model directly and tell her that Go Daddy commercial where she kisses the nerd was GROSS! WOW! Ben really did it this time. I can’t believe he was able to sneak into the White House and extract all this information. He really earned the hard matzo balls. By the way, Ben’s contact, Mr. TOTUS added that there might be other reasons, but these are the ones he discussed directly with Obama. Some people will read Cousin Ben’s report and say that it’s nothing but rubbish. But honestly doesn’t it make more sense than the other reports? If Barack Obama loves Israel and values her alliance with the U.S., he wouldn’t rush to the Jewish state to deliver an unequivocal message to the Israeli leadership that it must abandon all talk of a military strike on Iranian nuclear targets, he would help Israel develop a plan to protect herself. So those reports must be false. Jeff Dunetz is the Editor/Publisher of the political blog “The Lid” (www.jeffdunetz.com).

Letters to the editor No Academic Freedom Dear Editor: I sent the following e-mail to Karen Gould, the President of Brooklyn College, on 28 January 2013. There has to date been no response; nor do I expect one, for whatever answer Dr. Gould may give can only have rough ramifications for her and her college: TO: Karen Gould, President, Brooklyn College CUNY RE: “BDS Movement Against Israel” Hate Forum Dear President Gould: As you well know, a “BDS Movement Against Israel” program is now scheduled next week at your College. The event is sponsored by one of your academic Departments. Given the backgrounds and past records of the scheduled speakers, the event promises to be an unrestrained hatred-inducing pep rally. You have been credibly reported to chant the mantra of “Academic Freedom” in response to concerns expressed to you. And, quite frankly, as an Adjunct faculty member at a CUNY school, and a supporter of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, I am also a staunch proponent of academic freedom on our college and university campuses. But if you truly champion the cause of academic freedom, then you will be content-neutral in defending the free expression rights of your students and faculty members. Accordingly, I propose to work with some Brooklyn College students to organize an event to entitled “The Black Race and the Bell Curve,” where topics addressed would include (1) the disproportionate propensity of Black people to commit crimes; (2) Out-of-wedlock births in the Black community; (3) Collecting reparations from the Black community for the riots in Cambridge, Harlem, Watts, Cicero, North Philadelphia, Newark, Camden, Los Angeles, Louisville, et cetera; and (4) Repealing the 13th Amendment to the Constitution so that slavery can be reinstituted and the Black people can thereby be taken off the streets and put to productive work on the plantations. If such an event were to be planned for the Brooklyn College campus next month (which it will not, because I certainly have no intention of actualizing this hypothetical hyperbolical proposal), would you be giving it the same “Academic Freedom” defense as you now accord the event scheduled on your campus on 7 February? Would you tolerate one of your academic Departments sponsorship of such an event? Is there a single standard for “Academic Freedom” at Brooklyn College, or is special license given when it comes to bashing Jews and Israel? Kenneth H. Ryesky, Esq.

The Kosher Bookworm: A Purim Choice to Be

A scary Jewish spirituality path

T

here is so much that has been written about Purim that choosing something light and merry for review this year was not so hard. Nevertheless, based upon much discussion I am once again taking a serious tact in presenting to my readers a solemn theological and spirituality based path in this year’s review of Purim material based upon the writings and teachings of Rabbi Jeremy Kagan’s latest work, “The Choice to Be” [Feldheim, 2012]. In this work we are given a serious, somewhat history based theological presentment of the basis of the Purim celebration. Fairness to the author dictates that you be given as much of the author’s take, in his own words, for your edification of his views.There will be some ideas here that might challenge someof your long held notions. Rabbi Kagan gets deep into the origins and causes behind the Purim based history in this work’s chapter 21, “A Deeper Darkness” with a sharp focus upon the deeper meaning of the Persian role in the Purim story. The author’s take is then played out in perspective to the Arab role in our history. By inference Rabbi Kagan is actually focusing upon an, as yet, undefined future in our ongoing quest for redempAlan Jay Gerber tion. Consider the following: “We have spoken much about the four kingdoms that exiled the Jewish people, culminating in Rome. But we have been silent about the Arabs, who both oppressed a large segment of our people for over a thousand years and are the primary agents of physical pressure on the Jews today. Culturally our oppressor remains Rome, so the Arabs must be understood as an added element that comes to color the end of the Roman exile.” Rabbi Kagan then relates to us the following as a footnote to the above teaching. “As much as the Arab element constitutes a difference be-

tween our present circumstances and those under which the Purim salvation occurred, it also highlights an aspect of similarity, for Yishmael and Persia are deeply entwined with one another. Iran’s adoption of Islam and alignment with Arab politics is only a recent development but is at least indicative of a deep connection. [Islam only emerges in the 7th century of the Common Era. Our exile to Persia was hundreds of years before the Common Era, at a time when Persia was Zoroastrian rather than Islamic.] But there are commentaries who equate the ancient Persian Empire with Yishmael [See the Maharal, Netzach Yisrael, ch. 21]…..Both in the Persian exile and today we are dealing with a combination of Esav and Yishmael, the difference being that at Purim, Haman representing Esav, operated in the context of the Persian Empire representing Yishmael, whereas today Yishmael is operating within the context of Esav [ Rome].” Hmm….never learned this in yeshiva. Continuing in the main text Rabbi Kagan continues his history based teachings by stating that, “The Arabs have yet to exile the Jewish people, so they are in a different category than the four kingdoms.” To this point Rabbi Kagan once again resorts to the footnote method to further elaborate on his basic premise. Read this note carefully, and ponder deeply its significance. “The Arabs never exiled us from the Land of Israel, they only oppressed us after we were already out of the Land. Even then, it was only to a portion of the Jewish people. Though Greece also never forced the Jews out of the Land of Israel, they did culturally dominate us in the Land at a time when the bulk of the Jewish people were living in the Land – which is the equivalent of exile.” I for one had never considered this perspective before I read this work. Rabbi Kagan goes on further by giving credence to Arab Muslim spirituality by stating that, “Today we are faced with the Arabs, who are themselves genuinely religious. To overcome them it is not enough merely to become G-d’s servants – which they also are. Rather, we are forced to perfect our

service, especially in the area of prayer.” I sure hope that the good rabbi does not mean to set up these prayerful ones as role models for our spiritual emulation. There is much more to read and absorb of Rabbi Kagan’s writings on this and on other topics relating to our people’s destiny. Some of you might find these takes to be of interest, some of you might regard these ideas to be a stretch upon your personal religious beliefs. Nevertheless, the author’s views are worth a consideration as an expression of belief within our tradition. I state this because of the glowing approbation given to this work by Rabbi Aharon Feldman the esteemed Rosh Yeshiva of Ner Yisrael who wrote the following: “Based on RAMCHAL and classical sources, the book presents the basic concepts of G-d, man and the Jewish people in a clear, modern idiom and convincingly demonstrates how exercising free-will to subordinate oneself to G-d’s will is the path to creating a true sense of self, and how Torah satisfies man’s deepest longings for meaning and purpose.” To this take by Rabbi Feldman, I truly wonder if he took note and gave the following quote by Rabbi Kagan much serious notice. “In Persia we required a threat to bring to consciousness the realization of how far we were from connection to G-d and how desperately we needed that connection both spiritually and physically. The Creator has demonstrated in the recent past that He is not averse to using extreme methods to make this idea clear. It is frightening to consider the possibilities available today to make this point. Will rounding off our era of history require this kind of intervention again?” If this quote sounds scary and ominous to you, you are not alone.

Having convenient access to quality healthcare is important to everyone. That’s why you should know more about plans to bring world-class healthcare to the Five Towns. The Lawrence School Board recently voted to sell the former Number 6 School in Woodmere to Simone Development, a leading healthcare developer. Simone plans to transform the building into a state-of-the-art, multi-specialty outpatient care center to be operated by Mount Sinai, a world-renowned academic medical center. A public referendum vote on the sale will be held March 20.

Here’s why you should vote YES on March 20. The proposed state-of-the-art facility will provide comprehensive and integrated healthcare services all under one roof. It will be staffed by primary care physicians and specialists and include urgent care, diagnostic imaging and a wide array of medical specialties. And best of all, it will be located just minutes away in your own neighborhood!

The new facility offers many additional benefits for the community:

Please Vote YES on March 20!

Who’s in the kitchen

Back in the day, kid’s birthday parties were simple affairs O

ur Moms made a cake, there were bowls of pop corn, potato chips and some type of candy. An over the top party might have had crepe-paper streamers, balloons and maybe even pizza. Entertainment consisted of musical chairs, pin the tail on the donkey etc. Judging by today’s standards, we adults got the short end of the party stick! For my 9th birthday I decided I wanted a Cinderella theme. All my friends were asked to dress as Cinderella. One by one all the girls arrived dressed as Cinderella. Didn’t think any step sisters would show up. Then the last girl arrived….. as Batman, complete with cape and black boots. I was really annoyed at her but in those days Judy Joszef we didn’t hold grudges, which is a good thing, because 25 years later, “Batman” moved in across the street from me. Good thing I like you Gina Mallin, that, and the fact you always seem to have the missing ingredient I need when I’m baking or cooking. When I had kids things changed. What was in vogue then were “entertainers” We would hire someone to dress up as a character that our kids were enamored with at the time. We’d serve pizza, cake and give out

goodie bags. Today there is no such thing as a party in a house. Will it be the museum, Gymboree or zoo? Do you want the full party package? Face painting, balloon animals, rides and ponies? Or is your kid a baseball fan? Parents are making parties at the park…..not the ones we played in as kids, I’m talking Citi Field and not just reserving a few rows, we’re talking renting the entire stadium. You didn’t think my husband wouldn’t have a party story, did you??? When Jerry was turning seven he was invited to his friend Lenny Schwartz ‘s birthday party. Jerry came home so excited he could hardly contain himself. He told his mom of the ice cream and cake, lots of snacks, pin the tail on the donkey and musical chairs, and most impressively, he lived in a private house and had his own room. His mom said “You want a great birthday, I’m going to make you a great party. Invite 3 friends for next Sunday, this is going to be a party you will never forget” And how right she was about that. Jerry invite his two best friends and “Lenny”, this would be a good time to impress him. Sunday couldn’t come soon enough….. and then it couldn’t end fast enough. Jerry’s dad picked him, his brother and three friends up from school. When they entered the apartment Jerry turned white. There in the living room were all his aunts

,uncles and cousins. Men in suit and tie, women in shabbos finery complete with little mink stoles. Moishe Oysher, Chatzkilla Ritter and the Barry Sisters were playing on the Victrola and the happy crowd was dancing to the beat. As if that wasn’t enough, the table was laden with all sorts of “kid friendly” food…..stuffed cabbage, roast, chopped liver, shlishkes, gefilte fish and Hungarian nut rugalach Lenny asked “Hey Jerry, where’s YOUR party?” Jerry responded “just wait Lenny it’s gong to be great” After a while Jerry’s dad realized he had to save the day so he grabbed a ball and took the boys downstairs to the courtyard. So there they were, laughing, playing catch and having fun when the door opened and his cousin summoned them back upstairs at Jerry’s mom’s request. His dad pitied the kids, but he wasn’t ready to disobey a higher authority.” Sorry kids “ he said “we have to go back to the party”. Speaking of birthdays, this coming week we celebrate President’s Day. Rumor has it that George Washington said “I cannot tell a lie, I chopped down the cherry tree”. So my friends, I bring you Tart Cherry Crumb Cake, enjoy!

More tax revenue for your local schools.

VOTE

YES on March 20

Communities everywhere are searching for new ways to generate revenue without burdening taxpayers. Residents of the Five Towns have a unique opportunity to bring much-needed new tax revenue to their community. The Lawrence School Board recently voted to sell the former Number 6 School in Woodmere to Simone Development, a leading healthcare developer. Simone plans to transform the building into a state-of-the-art, multi-specialty outpatient care center to be operated by Mount Sinai, a world-renowned academic medical center. A public referendum vote on the sale will be held March 20.

Here’s why you should vote YES on March 20. If approved, the sale will result in a direct payment of $12.5 million to the School District. This new revenue will help reduce school taxes as well as improve existing schools and provide services to local private institutions. When completed, the new facility will generate an estimated $1 million in annual taxes, with 70% going to the School District.

The new facility offers many additional benefits for the community:

Parshat Terumah

The cover that needs support Chapter 26 explains that the curtain which cordons off the Holy of Holies (HoH) will be put in place, after which the Aron will be brought in to the HoH uncovered, after which the Kapporet will be placed on top â&#x20AC;&#x201C; inside the HoH (26:33-34). When it comes time to put everything together, Moshe is instructed to erect the Mishkan, to then place the Aron HaEidut (Ark of the Testimony) in its spot, and then to raise the dividing curtain (40:2-3) (no mention of the Kapporet). When he actually puts it all together, Moshe puts up the walls, places the Luchot in the Aron, puts the poles in their rings, and then he closes the Aron with the Kapporet. The Aron is then brought into the Mishkan, seemingly complete, and the curtain is hung up, designating the Aronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s area as the HoH. (40:20-21) That he changes the order of the original instructions when he puts all together (covering the Aron outside the HoH is not surprising â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the original instruction was more about making the items than about how to erect the Mishkan (Ramban 26:33). But according to the Netzivâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s line with which we opened, there is depth to be found in the instructions which seem to indicate the Aron will not be going into the HoH complete with cover, but will achieve its completeness only after it has been brought to its resting place. Continued on page 19

oncluding his commentary on 26:34, the Netziv comments â&#x20AC;&#x153;vâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ein davar rik baTorah,â&#x20AC;? there is no worthless item in the Torah. In other words, every detail in the Torah, from the choice of a word here versus there, or even a seemingly additional letter, has depth to it. Those who study â&#x20AC;&#x153;Scriptureâ&#x20AC;? alone will never understand this, and those who choose to study using translations will miss the nuances. Arguably the most prominent of the vessels of the Mishkan is the Aron â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Ark â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which has different deRabbi Avi Billet scriptions at different times: Hakodesh (the Holy Ark), HaBrit (Ark of the Covenant), HaEidut (Ark of the Testimony â&#x20AC;&#x201C; housing the Tablets). It is mentioned twice in our parsha, along with the cover â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Kapporet â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which adorned its top. 25:10-22 describes how they are to be made, with 25:16 explaining that the Luchot will be placed in it, followed by placing the cover on top. [Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll leave you to research why the Luchot placement is repeated in 25:21]

Hebrew Academy of Long Beach partners with Yashar Lachayal Students at the Hebrew Academy of Long Beach wrote letters to soldiers in the Israel Defense Forces, wishing them a happy Purim. These letters will be delivered to soldiers by the Israel-based non-profit organization Yashar LaChayal. Every Purim, Yashar LaChayal delivers mishloach manot to combat soldiers throughout Israel. Rabbi Friedman’s 10th grade students wrote the letters to soldiers, hoping to make Purim more joyous for those soldiers serving on Israel’s frontlines, even on holidays. According to Rabbi Friedman, “I know how much the soldiers appreciate these letters, especially the ones serving day and night to protect the Land . We appreciate them in the United States so much, and wish them a Happy Purim.” Scott Weissman is one of the students writing the letters to soldiers. Scott noted, “It’s a very good thing to do because the soldiers realize that there are people looking out for them and thinking of them. I know that if I was a soldier, I would love to get these letters and packages.” Yashar LaChayal staff and volunteers work with donors around the world to provide soldiers with the goods and services they need to stay comfortable and healthy, but are simply not covered by the regular IDF budget. The goods include warm winter outerwear, water backpacks, extra sturdy backpacks and other items requested by soldiers and their commanders. In addition, efforts are made to assist lone soldiers - volunteers in the IDF without family in Israel - and needy soldiers, providing them with access to personal goods and toiletries that they do not have the means to purchase, as well as assisting them with basic household goods. Yashar LaChayal volunteers will be packing mishloach manot in Israel the week before Purim, and will send the packages to soldiers on the borders, on the mountains and hilltops and to soldiers on bases in remote areas, making sure that the soldiers have an opportunity to celebrate Purim while they are engaged in their critical tasks. For more information about Yashar LaChayal, or to participate in the Yashar LaChayal Mishloach Manot for Soldiers Campaign, visit them on the web, www.yasharlachayal.org or email them at info@yasharlachayal.org.

A smile can go a long way One of the best ways to be happy is to make others happy. Some people volunteer at hospitals, childrens` organizations and such; that`s a huge mitzva and the volunteers no doubt bring joy to others` and thereby to themselves. But not all of us are cut out for that, or simply just don`t have the time. An easy way, though, to bring joy to others is through giving them a simple smile. And sometimes that smile can save your life, as it did for Yaakov the mashgiach ...

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.

Continued from page 12 Netziv asks about the extra word in 25:21 when we are told that the Kapporet will be placed on the Aron “m’il’maalah” - “from above” – as if there is another way the Kapporet could rest on the Aron. The instruction to Moshe was that when he brings the Aron into the HoH, uncovered, the Ark will be called the ‘Ark of the Testimony’ – a term used to describe the Ark when the Luchot are visible. The Kapporet is to be on top of the Aron in some manner, but not fit in place. It is to be placed on “from above” (25:21) so that the Aron will not be brought rotated at a 90 degree angle – with the opening facing sideways while one of its sides faces upward, supporting the not-yet-positioned Kapporet during transport. Rather, the Ark enters the HoH in the position that it will be placed on the floor, just with the Kapporet, the rectangular cover, placed perpendicular to its proper positioning. The Netziv concludes that this was the order, consistent with the instruction and with the actual placing – the curtain was hung up, but not solidified in place. Then the poles were inserted in the Ark, then the Kapporet was placed on top (not in its exact position), the Ark was brought into the HoH, and the Kapporet was straightened out once the Aron was resting in its spot in the HoH. The curtain was then tweaked to solidify the distinction between the Holy and the HoH. In 40:20, Netziv goes into further detail, essentially describing the Ark as “Aron HaKodesh” only when it is sitting in the HoH with its cover properly positioned

(which might make it not ‘the Holy Ark,’ but ‘The Ark of the Holy (of Holies)’). The message of the Aron not being completely covered until it is in its resting place in the HoH, according to Netziv, is one spanning all eternity. The Ark is the “Ark of the Testimony” when it is not where it belongs, and as long as the Luchot are still visible. Symbolically, this means that the concept of the Ark is to bear witness to the event of Revelation, the connection between God and the Jewish people, and that the Luchot, or whatever represents them, should be visible to us as long as there is no Mikdash to house the Aron in a closed up room entered once a year. The kapporet was placed above the Aron incorrectly, requiring support to avoid falling during transit to the HoH. So too, anyone who is going to support Torah must be standing at the sides, ready in waiting, to see that the cover of the Torah does not fall. This is particularly important in times when the Aron is not in the Mishkan or the Mikdash. The effort to support Torah in our day-to-day existence requires resilience and affirmation. Even when we are living dedicated Torah-oriented lives, we need to bear in mind that without the Mikdash, we can never achieve completeness – the cover of the Aron needs support so it can serve its purpose – first to bear witness, and hopefully to one day serve as a channel for representing the greatest holiness in our lives, when the real Aron – the Aron HaKodesh, complete with cover – once again rests on the floor of the Mikdash HaShlishi – the Third Temple.
