// Talk of Town

WE ARE MOURNING It bothers me when I hear people hung up on the details of the Nine Days, kvetching about its various halachos, and trying to find halachic loopholes so they can bathe, wash laundry or get away with the aspects they find inconvenient. Please remember what this time period is all about and what we are mourning! Focus on the tzaar haShechina, not on making yourself comfortable! When sitting shiva for a loved one, r”l, would one try to get a heter to make himself comfortable or to find joy in the week? We have to approach this time of mourning in the same manner, focusing on a loss so deep, that thoughts of convenience, of comfort, of lavish dairy meals and of even music will find no place at this sad time of year. May we be zoche to the rebuilding of the Bais Hamikdash, and may this time of mourning be reversed to a time of real joy. M.R.

POST-POOL WEAR It is wonderful that our women and girls are taking advantage of local pools during the hot summer months. I know you take great pains to ensure that there is a suitable mechitzah around the pool when you’re using it. Please don’t downgrade your level of tznius when you’re out of it. Kindly take a few minutes to get decently dressed before heading home so as to preserve your dignity and the kedusha of our town. Pool owners, it would be extremely appropriate for you to post a sign stating “Pool users, please do not leave our premises without proper dress,” or something to that effect.

RE: WHEN IT RAINS IT POURS (ISSUE #106) Dear Drenched, I am really very sorry that you got soaked while waiting for your child’s bus in a heavy rainstorm. I was actually driving one morning while it was pouring, and I really felt bad for all of the water-logged pedestrians like yourself. But your letter actually made me laugh out loud. Do you really expect drivers to “veer away” when we see you? That is very dangerous. Imagine a driver being so courteous that every time she sees a person on the curb she veers away. She would look drunk, and would also likely cause a car accident. There are enough things to keep an eye out for during a heavy downpour, especially in the mornings with little children on the streets. Obviously if you’re waiting on a large, quiet street, then a driver who doesn’t veer away is most likely thinking “target practice.” But if I’m driving on Route 306, for example, please understand you’re going to get drenched. And honestly, yes, I’m sorry about it. An Apologetic Driver

Dear Surfing, Your letter had me cracking up! I really love the humor you injected into your letter, even though I was the one who was drenched… I totally understand your point about driving safely through the streets, and the one about potholes, etc. I just wanted to clarify: I live on a quiet street and the particular car that drenched me had the full two-way street to himself at the moment I was soaked. There were no oncoming cars and there was a huge puddle near the sidewalk. (Thank you O&R for that lovely gift you left behind…) It was entirely feasible for that specific driver to veer away. All I ask is that drivers do their best to be considerate. Once Drenched, Now Dry

RE: PEDESTRIAN SAFETY (ISSUE #106) I was deeply pained by R. Niederman’s letter. As a good friend of the family involved in the Route 59 accident, I was completely taken aback at the lack of sensitivity in giving pedestrian safety instructions while the wound is so fresh and everyone is oozing with pain. This is not the first time in which I’ve experience young mothers being criticized discriminately. Where is your compassion? Where is your understanding? Do you really think that you, from the comfort of your air-conditioned car, are more concerned for the safety of the baby in the stroller than his mother who cares for him devotedly throughout the day and night? Do you really think she uses him as a traffic sensor? Are you truly concerned about their safety? Why hasn’t it occurred to you to stop unhurriedly, and gladly, and let the family safely cross the road? These Yiddishe mothers waiting to cross the road with their children are deserving of utmost respect. They should be admired, looked upon with awe, and mostly, helped instead of criticized. Young mothers, your work is inspiring. And only a young mother like me knows how very concerned you really are about the safety of your children. Another Broken Friend

The proposed idea of a sidewalk for pedestrian safety on Route 59 east of Route 306/Main Street, Monsey may be a good idea, but only if everyone uses it and doesn’t try to cross the street in middle of the block, right in front of oncoming vehicles. There is a beautiful new sidewalk along Forshay Road, but this week alone

t o n s i s Thi sert... s e d a t s ju ERT THIS IS A DESS

arve P A L L I N O VA M I S S I M With CRE


I passed two yeshiva boys strolling on the opposite side of the road, not utilizing the sidewalk! For years now there has been a sidewalk on College Road between Highview Road and Route 59. Yet almost every week there are grown men and yeshiva boys walking on the opposite side of the road on a narrow shoulder, even at night without reflectors! It is time all parents, yeshivos and shuls help educate their people. They must use available sidewalks, cross safely and always wear reflective walking strips at night. Those on bicycles should have mounted lights and certainly wear reflectors at night. I do not want to be responsible for accidentally hitting someone. A Concerned Driver

RE: THE RACKET UPSTAIRS (ISSUE #102) In response to the upstairs/downstairs neighbors discussion, I want to mention something I once heard from a wise woman: There are those who hear, but don’t hear, who see, but don’t see. And there are those who don’t hear, but hear, who don’t see, but see. So, dear neighbors, without mitigating the need for proper soundproofing let’s choose to hear and not hear, see and not see. And both we — and our neighbors — will gain. A Downstairs Neighbor

When I first became an upstairs neighbor many years ago, my downstairs neighbor asked me to install carpeting in my apartment. Besides for this request being excessive, I have a dust allergy and carpeting was out of the question. But there are a number of inexpensive things upstairs neighbors can do to be more neighborly and considerate of their downstairs neighbors, and also benefit by having increased sound privacy. 1. Make generous use of area rugs. Area rugs can be inexpensive and don’t need installation. Plus, they add beauty to a home. Put down runners in your hallways where little feet run. A large colorful rug can really brighten up a playroom and dull the sounds of toys falling, and in addition your children will benefit from its cushioned tumbling surface. Shag rugs in bedrooms and living rooms will absorb noise, footsteps, and children jumping off beds and couches. A cushioned rug pad (placed underneath a rug to keep it from slipping) adds an additional layer of sound absorption. Another benefit is that your floors will be protected from wear and tear and their finish will last longer. 2. Use felt pads on chair and table feet and other

42 / THE MONSEY VIEW / July 26, 2017 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

moveable furniture to keep it from scraping when moved, and rubber pads on furniture that is not meant to be moved. Not only will your downstairs neighbors be grateful, your floors will be too. 3. Use soft door stops and soft door closers (these are inexpensive and easily available at hardware stores) if door slamming is an issue in your home. 4. If possible, use “soft” furniture like bean bag chairs and foam couches in kids’ rooms, for children who like to plop or jump around on furniture. Put felt pads on hi-risers or use a trundle. I’ve heard people say that beds being pulled out late at night over their sleeping children’s’ heads is one of the sounds that bother them most. S.Y. Berger

Dear Downstairs Neighbor, We are, baruch Hashem, a large family trying our best to keep the noise level to a minimum. I want to let you know that we can hear you, too, through the pipes and walls. I hesitated if I should share with you that I am privy to your arguments, running and jumping around and door-slamming, and I think this is the right opportunity to do so. Your Upstairs Neighbor

AN OPEN LETTER TO RETAILERS I try not to shop at the malls and department stores, because I don’t want to be exposed to the lack of tznius there, but lately I’m seeing no better in the heimishe stores! Retailers, no matter whom you hire, they must be dressed modestly. Each store owner has an achrayus not to expose Yiddishe kids and women to immodest sights that will forever remain in their minds. I also want to tell the customers that it always helps when you request something. I’ve had it on more than one occasion that I pointed out to shopkeepers the lack of tznius of their hired help, and they agreed with me and changed the guidelines in their store. Say it in a nice way, and your awareness will effect change. Thank you. A Monsey Shopper EDITOR’S BULLETIN: We’ve received feedback from several readers that upon visiting Borough Park in Waldwick, NJ there was a clearly marked sign stating that the park is “for residents only.” We would like to make you aware that the locals do not appreciate when nonresidents visit the park. We’ve received a similar report from a visitor to Finch Park in Ramsey, NJ.


Hot cocoa would be great right now, no?

Ugh, in this blizzard, curling up with a hot mug would be the best thing in the world.

Imagine that! I’ve got the best thing in the world.

You are the best thing in the world.

I know. I’m like an island in a storm.

As told to: Basya Lev

I SAW HIM AND SLOWED DOWN, but it was too late. The sirens went on and I asked Hashem that they shouldn’t be for me. Soon the police cruiser was right behind me. I pulled over and so did he. The policeman got out of his car and approached mine. He asked me if I knew the speed limit and told me how fast I had been driving. He then took my license and registration after glancing at my insurance card and went back to his car while I davened that I should only get a warning. He returned with a ticket. Although I do tend to drive fast, it had been about twenty years since I had received my last speeding ticket. It had been my first. I now held the second one in my hands. I pulled away and at first was upset about the ticket, but my next thought was that it was obviously bashert. We don’t usually think about the bad things that don’t happen because Hashem is watching over us. Perhaps because I received the ticket, an accident I was supposed to be in did not occur. One thing I do know, I have now been trying to change my driving habits. I realized if I believe using the cell phone without a Bluetooth while driving is wrong, then so is speeding. So, when you are behind that person driving the speed limit and it feels like you are going at the pace of a turtle, just know that person might be me! Also, I might have just saved you from your own speeding ticket!

Becoming Weigh Smarter Compassion and Self-Care: Questions and Answers THERE HAS BEEN A FAIR AMOUNT of activity going on in the last two weeks. I’m referring to people calling and emailing me with questions relating to self-care and compassion. In response to this, I would like to share a few questions and answers and give you some clarity.

Q. I’ve been struggling with my weight for quite some time. Basically, I am a yo-yo dieter, gaining and losing the same 25 pounds over and over again. I’m pretty much fed up with the whole situation, so how can I stop feeling angry and frustrated about where I’m at? How can I transform those feelings into compassion? A. This a a great question, and one I’ve been asked multiple times. This is a troubling pattern for many of you. First, notice that you have thoughts and feelings of anger and frustration. Although some of you may wonder who could possibly care about your thoughts and feelings, I’d like to emphasize that I hear you and I understand where you’re coming from. And that’s exactly my point. When it comes to our emotions, it doesn’t matter whether they’re “valid” or not — if you’re experiencing any type of negative thought or feeling, there are two options. You can allow yourself to get all hyped up by your emotions. You can tell yourself that you will never lose weight and maintain it because you simply don’t have the self-control to do so, and then you can lose yourself in the thrashing feelings of a heavy heart, tightness in your throat or even burning anger in your chest. My take on this is that you should allow yourself to feel and

You can either follow your emotions and thoughts by being extremely hard on yourself and becoming very rigid in your food plan, or you can break free from those negative thoughts and feelings and start to feel compassion for yourself.

think what comes naturally to you, since it’s the way you react to those thoughts and feelings that matter. Your reaction, in fact, will make or break your weight-loss goals. The second option is to overcome the negative cycle and react to your feelings in a positive way. You can either follow your emotions and thoughts by being extremely hard on yourself and becoming very rigid in your food plan — and end up overeating all that junk again — or, you can break free from those negative thoughts and feelings and start to feel compassion for yourself. This will allow you to break the cycle and find a solution to all the craziness.

Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) This technique is so powerful that it’s definitely worth practicing. The effects are truly wonderful. In short, ACT teaches you to be aware of any negative thoughts, feelings and emotions — like guilt, sadness, cravings and anger — by simply monitoring those feelings and realizing that they can’t hurt you unless you choose to react to them in a negative way. It’s easier said than done, but I can guarantee that with a regular ACT practice throughout the day, your life will never be the same! Q. How can I be happy if I have so much weight to lose and I continuously sabotage my own hard work? A. I really like this

question because it touches on a common theme that so many of us experience. I feel it needs to be given greater importance, so today, I will share a few beliefs that many of have, and continue with more ideas next week.

The Happiness Trap You’re supposed to feel happy all

the time, right? Well, that’s not really possible. In fact, it’s a common belief that is simply inaccurate, misleading and not representative of mortal human beings. This brings us to the next problem, which is that if you feel you should always be happy, and you’re not, you may feel like something is wrong with you or that you’re defective in some way. You

may criticize yourself or feel weak. And as discussed, that’s where ACT therapy comes in. It’s based on a totally different assumption — the assumption that we must accept what comes our way and react in a productive manner that will take us closer to our goals. Stay tuned for more information on changing your outlook next week.

The Nine Days

and Tisha B’Av By Malka Schneps

PARENTS UNDERSTAND THE whirlwind of contradictory feelings that deep, powerful love can generate. On the one hand, you want to hold on to your children forever, to keep them in your loving embrace and never let go — but on the other hand, you do not wish them to remain babies forever. Ultimately, we yearn to see our children grow up and establish their own homes, yet this will cause us the pain of loss borne of love, ultimately nullifying our own identities as their nurturers. The Nine Days and Tisha B’Av are a time of contradictory feelings borne of love. The Gemara in Bava Basra 60b states, “Whoever mourns the destruction of Yerushalayim will be zocheh to see its rejoicing.” Surely tzaddikim mourn the Beis HaMikdash and yearn to see its rebuilding. And yet, the Gemara in Sukkah 52a states that in the future, Hashem will shecht the yetzer hara in the presence of both the tzaddikim and the reshaim, and both will cry. The Maharsha and R’ Yaakov Emden suggest that the tzaddikim will cry because they will no longer have the ability to earn their own Olam Haba by overcoming the yetzer hara. How can it be that tzaddikim yearn for the very thing that will lead them to cry over their own loss? It says in Mishlei, “Ner Hashem nishmas adam — The neshamah of man is a candle of Hashem.” (Mishlei 20:27) The Tanya, in Perek 19, explains that our neshamos are like the flame of a candle that always flickers upward. The candle’s flame yearns to escape the wick and unite with its source above even though it doing so would end its own existence, as it would no longer give forth light below, and its light would be nullified within the brightness of its source above. Likewise, the Tanya explains, the neshama yearns to leave the body and become one with Hashem, even though its identity would be completely nullified in the process. Why should the neshama seek to leave the body and unite with its Source if this would mean nullification? There is no rational explanation for this desire — it results from the neshama’s essential nature by which it is drawn to its Source with a longing beyond comprehension. The Tanya explains that this longing of the neshama to be united with its Source is the “hidden love” we inherited from the Avos.

56 / THE MONSEY VIEW

The longing that the tzaddikim feel — and that we strive to feel — is a selfless longing rooted in deep love. The ahavas Hashem of tzaddikim leads them to feel the pain of the Shechina in galus. They want to see the Bais Hamikdash rebuilt because they want Hashem’s light to be revealed in this world, even if this would take away from their own ability to earn Olam Haba through their own efforts. This seems to be the answer to the original question of why tzaddikim yearn for the geulah even though they themselves will suffer a loss. Their love for Hashem is true and selfless, beyond their own personal desires, but in line with their truest, deepest desire: to come close to Hashem — so close as to become one with Him to the point of self-nullification. At this time of year, we are enjoined to mourn the loss of the Bais HaMikdash. It can be difficult to mourn the loss of the Bais HaMikdash when we have never experienced having one. The Bais HaMikdash made it possible for us to come closer to Hashem. Perhaps if we focus on our desire to come close to Hashem by building our ahavas Hashem, we can then better mourn the loss of the Bais HaMikdash. The Zohar teaches that Hashem, the Torah and Klal Yisrael cannot be separated. If we want to strengthen our ahavas Hashem, we can work on strengthening our ahavas Yisrael and our ahavas haTorah. Indeed, in his first public address as Rebbe in the year 5711, the Lubavitcher Rebbe, ztz”l, began by stating that ahavas Hashem, ahavas haTorah and ahavas Yisroel are all one, and cannot be separated. The Rebbe concluded, “The galus was due to the opposite of ahavas Yisrael, and through ahavas Yisrael we will merit the final Redemption speedily in our days.” It can be challenging to feel true, deep mourning for the Bais HaMikdash because we have never experienced it firsthand. It might be easier to work on our ahavas Hashem, as we experience Hashem’s relationship with us at all times. But easiest of all may very well be to work on our ahavas Yisrael, for we are one people, and opportunities to express our love for one another surround us each and every day. In the zechus of our ahavas Yisrael, may the Bais Hamikdash be rebuilt speedily in our days.

EVERY YEAR, as Tisha B’Av draws closer, I can feel a change in my mood. The world always starts to look a bit darker and to feel a bit scarier. I often ask myself what could have changed, seemingly overnight, to cause me to feel this heightened sense of anxiety. In general, I try not to be exposed to negative news. It’s just an emotional road I’d rather not go down. In the current world we live in, I would have hoped that stories of happy endings and gratitude would be promoted throughout the world, and I truly believe that these types of stories do exist, even on a global level. Instead, we are constantly bombarded with endless narratives that make us hold our family members close and daven harder. Throughout my life I have always been sensitive and this sense of vulnerability becomes more acute leading up to Tisha B’Av. Although not everyone in my community speaks openly about it, I sense that others feel the same way. After three weeks of heightened sensitivity and

awareness of the struggle the worldwide Jewish community faces, I find that every year I reach Tisha B’Av and still have difficulty connecting to the intensity of everything this day represents. This paradox of my heightened awareness paired with my inability to connect to the full extent of mourning on Tisha B’Av has always left me wondering how I, as an individual, and we, as the greater Jewish community, can find a way to truly connect on an intellectual, emotional and spiritual level to Tisha B’Av. I believe that the main mental block I encounter while trying to relate to the intense sadness of the day, is that I try to take in all of the tragedies that the Jewish people have experienced during this time of year at once. When I look at the list of every event that has happened during the Three Weeks, and on Tisha B’Av in particular, my mind becomes too full of questions and I am too overwhelmed to be able to accept the entire list of tragedies. Somehow, the events merely become bullet points on a tally that seems never-ending. Alternatively, I have tried to focus on one major tragedy — the fact that we no longer have a Beis HaMikdash, but that feels so distant and so foreign to the life I live now that it is hard for me to comprehend what we are missing. Over the past few years, I have worked very hard to see Hashem in the little occurrences in my life. When I go to the bank machine and the exact denomination of bills

What I do see and understand, though, is what is going on today in our community as a whole and, although it is hard for me to comprehend that our tragedies are connected to our actions as punishments, I can see what division and strife between people has done to us as a nation. We do, Baruch Hashem, have moments of achdus, but our divisions seem to continually plague us on a daily basis. If we could work together to turn the tables and have fleeting moments of division and As I noticed the small moa norm of achdus rather ments in my life where I could than what sometimes feels like the opposite, connect to Hashem, the big perhaps we can stop in its tracks moments also became clearer. history and bring Moshiach.

I found that as I noticed the small moments in my life where I could connect to Hashem, the big moments also became clearer. I imagine when we had the Beis Hamikdash, Hashem was so prevalent in our lives that

Manslaughter Charges Filed in Route 59 Accident THE 62-YEAR-OLD MAN WHO SLAMMED into a family walking along the side of Route 59, injuring three and killing one, will be facing manslaughter charges, according to Rockland County District Attorney Thomas Zugibe. Albert Gomez was allegedly trying to pass a car service that he believed had cut him off when he took to the shoulder of the roadway and hit the pedestrians. A mother and her 13- and 9-year-old daughters were seriously injured, and a three-month-old baby boy who was in his carriage at the time of the accident passed away

several days later. Gomez was charged with one count each of felony manslaughter and felony criminally negligent homicide, two counts of felony assault and one misdemeanor count of assault, reported Rockland Daily Voice. “This defendant was driving recklessly and aggressively when he sped onto the shoulder of Route 59 and crashed into an unsuspecting family, tragically killing an infant,” said Zugibe. “Rockland County will not tolerate this blatant disregard for life over a traffic dispute.”

Relief on the Way for Spring Valley PD LONG PLAGUED BY OUTDATED and unreliable vehicles, the Spring Valley Police Department will be receiving five new police cars this fall. The village’s board of trustees unanimously approved a $200,000 expenditure for the new cruisers at a meeting held last week. The cars are expected to cost $41,000 each and will supplement the village’s aging fleet of thirteen police cars, many of which have been sidelined because they are in need of repair, reported The Journal News. SVPD police officer and Police Benevolent Associa-

tion president Matthew Galli said that currently officers have been sharing the village’s five working police cars. Galli described the addition of five new cars as a positive step in the right direction, but noted that the older police cruisers being used will need replacement because of the heavy wear and tear they endure. “Police cars are constantly being used, and even though they will be new they will experience the same wear and tear as the old cars, and we need to stay on top of retiring old cars and replacing with newer ones.”

It made sifting the flour — bang bang bang on the wall of the stainless steel sieve — a rhythm, a joy. It made whipping the eggs, until stiff peaks formed and she could turn it upside down and it would still not slide, a delight. The sponge cake came out of the oven with a crusty blanket, and the kokosh cake oozed sugary delight. The hupchokes sat, drying in the oven until they would calcify . Henya mopped the bathrooms. She wrung rags and hung them on the porch rail so they dried in the summer sun. The house smelled of sugar and chocolate and lemon and soap. The floors glistened. The aroma itself could arrest a person’s soul. It was late afternoon, and after spending the day in his playpen, surrounded by inanimates, Faivel was restless with his unengaging toys. She was also done. There was a knotted ball at the base of her neck which, when she moved, protested vehemently. She fed the little boy and changed him into a sailor outfit, but not the one she was saving for tomorrow, when Bianca would arrive. She was excited, truly.

Intention is everything. She was excited. She felt it in the way her carriage rumbled over the dry pebbles and sank into the wet sand, while she puckered her face to unclog it and continue. The sun was raking the lawns outside, small hills casting shadows. She felt it in the breathlessness of running up the stairs to Tilla’s porch. Tilla was there. Again, she knocked the dust from her rugs and swept the porch, appearing busy, checking the winding roads outside out of the corners of her vision. “I see you are happy,” Tilla said.

Taking to the Baking

Classic kokosh cake, a delicious old-fashioned treat which consumes many hours in preparation, yet yields ultimate results in taste Most of us have our set way to bake yeast cakes and generally don’t look for new ideas. Nevertheless, we are sometimes up for new challenges and are ready to try something a bit different without compromising old-world flavor. These three choices are for just those moments. Stock up your freezer before the erev yom tov rush and may we be zoche to greet Moshiach while we break the fast on this or another repast.

1 DOUGH, 1 FILLING = 2 PRESENTATIONS This yeast dough was passed down to me by a friend from her late grandmother’s recipe collection.

WHO ARE THE NAVY SEALS? IN CASE YOU HAVEN’T HEARD yet, the Navy SEALs are the maritime component of the U.S. Special Forces. SEAL stands for SEa, Air and Land — signifying all of the places that SEALs must be comfortable operating. In others words, anywhere a human can go!

The SEALs are known to be the most elite military group in the entire world and very few can pass their training requirements. Here’s a peek inside.

PREPARING FOR BUD/S Joining the Navy SEALs is known to be one of the most arduous processes known to man. Very few who even dare

90 / THE MONSEY VIEW

to try will make the grade. In fact, only a third of those who sign up for for the SEAL training program, called BUD/S (Basic Underwater and Demolition/SEAL training), will graduate to become a fullfledged SEAL. But this isn’t to say that men don’t try. The opportunity to become a SEAL is open to experienced military personnel and laymen alike, granted they pass the tests issued them. After going through basic physicals to procure a squeaky clean bill of health, those who dream of becoming a SEAL will take the Physical Screening Test (PST) which contains minimum standards for swimming, push-up, curl-up and running abilities. (See sidebar for minimum and encouraged requirements.) In order to reach these standards, many hopefuls will sign up for BUD/S preparatory schools where they will dedicate time to building muscle and getting into the mindset required of a SEAL. A BUD/S prep school focuses on steadily increasing various types of endurance, enabling the applicant to stand a better chance of becom-


ing a SEAL. One of the most common issues that trainees encounter are ankle tightness which can lead to weakness, aches and injury when challenged during real SEAL training. The reason for this is that most people don’t spend time practicing with swim flippers, which is one of the most vital parts of the SEAL uniform kit. SEALs are required to swim in rough conditions in frozen rivers, turbulent seas and over long distances — all of which are hard to accomplish without the right gear. Swim flippers enable SEALs to swim better, faster and longer. Flipper training is just one of the prep exercises for future BUD/S trainees. Prep schools also work on weight lifting, track running, underwater focus skills and more. In the SEAL mindset, slow and steady is the way to go. Every day, muscles are stretched to that day’s max — which won’t be the same as the following day, and certainly won’t be the same as what they’ll endure as a SEAL. It’s all to enable them to better handle the even more challenging BUD/S program.

BUD/S Once an applicant passes the PST it’s off to Coronado, California, home to the BUD/S training program at the Naval Special Warfare Center. It is here that those who

make it through the training will mold their bodies into powerful weapons of war and learn basic seaman skills, hand-to-hand to combat, navigation, raids and prisoner capture, communications, demolition, skydiving and so much more. They’ll also be getting very cozy with the infamous BUD/S logs — wooden beasts that weigh between 180–210 pounds. During training, teams of 6–7 will be formed, groups that will carry those logs together as a team for hours at a time. They’ll do sit-ups together — while holding the logs, swim through the ocean — while holding the logs, and just about anything you can think of — while holding the logs. The purpose of the logs goes far beyond strength training; it teaches the men to work

together as synchronized team, a vital aspect of any well-functioning SEAL unit. SEAL training is conducted in phases. The first phase includes introduction and the infamous Hell Week, the second phase focuses on combat swimming and diving, which transform SEAL trainees into the what is known as “frogmen,” and the third phase focuses on land combat and then combines all if the previously obtained skills.

FIRST PHASE INTRODUCTION Introduction to BUD/S is a doozy. SEAL wannabes get their first taste of the high standards that are required of them at the uniform inspection that takes place right away. Standing ramrod straight, the trainees are inspected head-to-toe by instructors. What may seem to be a perfect uniform to the layman is often met with scorn by those in the know. Even a loose thread on the inside of a pocket or speck of dirt can mean consequences. Those who fail to meet standards are shamed, forced to run on all fours to form a new group in the back of all other trainees. If one dare question why a loose thread is so important, he is met with the answer, “If I can’t trust you with your uniform, how can I trust you with a gun?” A valid point

July 26, 2017 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 91 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


indeed. Things just get more intense from that point on. One of the first experiences a new recruit will undergo is a taxing midnight-tomorning physical training that includes non-stop, fast-paced exercises that go on for hours and hours. Not only that, but the trainees do all exercises after being caked with mud and spritzed with water. It is cold, dirty and oh-so intense. But it’s nothing to compare to Hell Week!

choose to forgo the offered sleeping slots altogether in order to avoid the trauma of having to force themselves awake once they’ve fallen into highly desired slumber. This is

pain!): food. With four meals a day and multiple snacks, SEAL trainees know that at least they won’t go hungry despite the torture they experience from constant movement and lack of sleep. And if extreme exhaustion isn’t enough to contend with, utter grime makes the situation even more miserable. Though there are several hygiene stations where soon-to-be (or maybe not!) SEALs can give a quick wash up, it’s a only a matter of moments before they’ll be sent to slog through the mud or jump into the Pacific once again. While many consider Hell Week to be about brute physical ability, SEALs know that it’s really a battle for mental control. They must learn to overpower their bodies with their will, subjugating the whispers of a doubtful mind. During the torturous week, instructors repeatedly

sleep deprivation that even a mother of newborn multiples wouldn’t envy. Throughout the five days of Hell, trainees can be found sleeping while standing or even running, and many times, face-down in a meal. But at least one thing is supplied in abundance (other than

tell the trainees that it’s okay to give up, mimicking the inner voice of socalled reason. They even await those who ring the bell of defeat with donuts and hot coffee, an enticement to see who will give in and who will be able push through the pain of desire. In the world of SEALs, only the mentally strong will succeed. Hell Week is a cold, wet, exhausting and emotional experience

HELL WEEK: The best way to separate the wheat from the chaff. By the third week of Phase 1, potential SEALs are given the challenge of their life: to survive the famed Hell Week. Explosions and wild gunfire open the week in a chaotic breakout reminiscent of camp. For the next five days it will be 20 grueling hours of training per day, with less than four hours of sleep for the entire period, offered in two slots of two hours each on two separate days. Some trainees

that not everyone is able to endure. Those who do, usually go on to become full-fledged SEALs.

SECOND PHASE In Phase 2, swimming skills are the main focus. Drills start out with learning basic floating, flipper and alignment skills and progress to performing complex underwater operations. Drown proofing is one of the most intense parts of the program, with trainees’ feet and hands being tied prior to their diving into a pool, where they will have to bob for air. The point of the exercise is to train future SEALs to avoid panic when underwater. To further remove the panic reflex, instructors also harass divers in another training, this time after swimmers have been trained in SCUBA. The instructors swim to the trainees and violently flip them around, simulating strong tidal waves and ripping away their oxygen gear. Other times, instructors will remove a diver’s mouthpiece and knot the oxygen cord, requiring the diver to remove his SCUBA pack and untangle his gear before getting that gulp of fresh air — a process which can take several minutes. All of these scenarios may seem cruel to an onlooker, but in truth, they are preparing the trainees for real-life situations that can — and most likely will — occur for a Navy SEAL. During missions, SEALs are often required to carry 60 pounds of gear through dangerous tides, all sorts of terrain, and of course, enemy territory. Better to train hard while home!

SEAL Physical Screening Test There are minimal SEAL contracts given per training session, allowing dreamers the opportunity to train as a SEAL. The minimum PST standards are listed below, but the Navy encourages hopefuls to aim for the recommended standards to increase their chances of landing a contract. Minimum Standards: Swim 500 yards in 12.5 min 50 push-ups in 2 minutes 50 curl-ups in 2 min 10 pull-ups in 2 min 1.5-mile run in 10 min 30 sec

Recommended Standards: Swim 500 yards in 8 min 50 sec 100 push-ups in 2 minutes 100 curl-ups in 2 min 100 20 pull-ups in 2 min 20 1.5-mile run in 8 min 50 sec

THIRD PHASE The culmination of the threeand-a-half week third phase is a training on San Clement Island, California, though it actually starts offshore where SEALs-in-training are sent into the ocean to swim to shore, saddled with 60 pounds of gear. The swim takes roughly 45

July 26, 2017 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 93 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


minutes, after which trainees shed their wet gear, hoist up their packs and begin an uphill run to the obstacle course where they will be challenged to crawl under barbed wire, jump from log to log, climb high walls and multi-story wood frames, and balance on rope crossings. All of it with that huge pack on their backs and weaponry dangling from their sides. After that, there’s still no rest for the weary. It’s straight to the target range where wannabe SEALs have to prove that they can still accurately operate their weapons despite mind-numbing fatigue. Once they’ve proved their skill, it’s straight back into the water for another long swim! Once all phases of the six month BUD/S course is complete, those who have persevered and achieved are finally awarded the Navy SEAL Trident, the signet testifying to their hard work and dedication. They are now certified SEALs. Even after graduating, the training continues, molding the now graduated SEALs into the finely tuned weapons of war they’ve dreamed of becoming to protect their country. In total, the average SEAL trains for 2.5 years before deploying on his first mission.

WHAT KIND OF MISSIONS ARE SEALS INVOLVED IN? Those who have trained as SEALs are reserved for the most complex, dangerous and top-secret missions the U.S. government has. While most SEAL missions are classified, and SEALs try very hard to stay out of the limelight for security reasons, certain missions have leaked out, with one of the most famous being the neutralization of terrorist Osama bin Ladin, yemach shemo. The truth is that we’ll probably never know the extent of the SEALs’ activities, but just by looking at their training, we can imagine how intense they must be!

LEARNING FROM THE SEALS Throughout the ages there have always been men of might, dedicated to physically and mentally conditioning themselves for the causes they truly believe in. The Navy SEALs are but one extraordinary glimpse into what it means to be a man of might. Beyond the physical capabilities these special seaman have trained themselves in is the remarkable mental ded ic at ion to their iden-

tities as Navy SEALs. SEALs who were once ordinary men are now working in perfect tandem, their moves synchronized and harmonized by the millisecond. Every gesture is calculated not only with themselves in mind, but the ultimate good of their team. No SEAL would ever dream of doing something that would throw his unit off, thereby putting them into potential danger. What is good for one, is good for all. Every SEAL knows that their team is collective unit, a breathing organism made up of human parts, of but which they are one cog in the well-oiled machine. Every move of a single member affects the others. Likewise, remarkable is SEAL trainees’ undivided focus on their instructors. Seeing a SEAL unit train is seeing a group of eyes that never waive, intense gazes constantly on their higher ups, their guides. Whether their faces are caked in mud, their bodies are screaming in agony, and their limbs are begging reprieve, SEALs will never lose their focus. There is always too much at stake. We, too, can be men of might by taking these lessons to heart. It is the mental conditioning that we are soldiers of the most elite unit in the world, and that our every interaction with others in our team can spell the difference between life and death that will make us men of might. It is the building of achdus, of working in tandem with our fellow Jews for the greater good. And of course, it is all about never taking our eyes off of our Instructor. May we merit to accomplish the most important mission of all and bring Moshiach speedily through our perfect, synchronized mitzvos.

GROWING UP IN MONSEY, there was always a buzz about George Washington’s presence right in our little hamlet. And these legends are most probably not unfounded, despite lack of hard historical evidence. The cemetery at corner Saddle River Road and West Maple Avenue where Revolutionary veterans, seemingly those who fell in battle, (as well as those who fought in the War of 1812 and in the Civil War) are interred, is but one hint of a war brushing past our neck of the woods. Another clue is the now-filled bunker on Elyon Road (that Viznitz graduates of the 1980s recall exploring), dating back to the war that turned us into a country. The historical home on Corner W. Maple Avenue and Blauvelt Road, where George Washington is said to have spent some time is another whisper of that era. The map on the next page shows the WashingtonRochambeau Revolutionary Route in red and the troop campsites are the triangles. Notice how the route took the troops from Haverstraw and down to Suffern, literally passing through Monsey on the way. So while no hard evidence is in place, the fingers are definitely pointing in our direction. There are plenty of sourced locations near us, though, that were influenced or served as quarters of some sort during the Revolutionary War, which we will be exploring.

1 Rockland County Courthouse Main Street, New City, NY

Being the highest point on South Mountain (which runs through Pomona and Haverstraw) High Tor served as an important lookout and signal point for the colonists to watch British activities on the Hudson. It was also used as an air raid watch during World War II.

This site was purchased in 1774. The courthouse was temporarily housed in various places (Coe’s Tavern being one of them), while the construction was delayed by the Revolution, only being completed in 1784. In 1798, when Rockland County was formed, New City became its seat of government. The current courthouse (pictured below) is the third one built on the site.

As the highest peak in western Rockland County, the Torne also served as a lookout point, where soldiers would look out for British ship movement on the Hudson. As legend has it, George Washington lost his watch on this mountain.

WASHINGTON AND THE HUDSON General Washington recognized the strategic importance of the Hudson in gaining independence. The Continental Army had forts and lookout points at different spots overlooking the Hudson, and focused on gaining and maintaining control. Washington personally spent a third of the Revolutionary War in the Hudson Valley.

De Wint was George Washington’s temporary headquarters on four separate occasions during the Revolution. It is also the oldest surviving structure in Rockland County. Those of you who read Phoebe and the General as part of your literature course, will recognize the name Samuel Fraunces of Fraunces Tavern fame, who came up from NYC to prepare a dinner that Washington hosted for the British general in the De Wint House as they were negotiating the final withdrawal of British troops in 1783.

Sneden’s Landing (which is now Palisades) is right past Piermont at the Hudson. The Sneden family operated a ferry at Sneden’s’ Landing along with the Dobbs family, who operated from the opposite shore (Dobbs Ferry) over the Hudson River. Sneden’s Landing and Dobbs Ferry saw considerable activity during the Revolutionary War. In 1775, when Martha Washington rode up to meet George Washington, she used the Sneden’s Ferry to cross the Hudson River.

The Philipse family were loyalists, and their home was used by English general Sir Henry Clinton in 1779. The family was attainted for treason and their manor was confiscated and later auctioned off.

In this triangle at Lafayette and Washington Avenues is a Revolutionary cannon in commemoration of the tavern owned by John Suffers at this location, which sheltered many Continental Army officers, including Washington.

In a daring midnight attack on the British, Continental Army troops defeated British troops, who suffered heavy losses in battle. While not one of the major battles in the war, this was an important victory in terms of boosting the morale for the Continental Army and in giving them access to cross the Hudson at a later point.

West Point Years before the area became known for its military academy, West Point played a crucial role in helping the new United States during the Revolution, by preventing the British from controlling the Hudson. High above the Hudson, overlooking an S-curve just 60 miles north of NYC (which was controlled by the British) Washington referred to West Point as “the most important post in America.” It was fortified in 1778 by professional engineers and stayed in the Continental Army’s control throughout the war.

Fort Montgomery and nearby Fort Clinton were the scene of a fierce battle for control of the Hudson. The Patriots, who were outnumbered, fought desperately until they were driven out of their forts. The Bear Mountain Bridge was built at this site.

Camouflage: stems from the French word camoufler, which means to blind or disguise.

Once upon a time, guns were a game of hit-or-miss at war, with the accuracy of the historic muskets being rather lame. When the rifle was introduced to warfare in the 19th century, things took a drastic turn. All of sudden, targets became much, much easier to hit, causing militaries to invest heavily in camouflage techniques for their combatants. It was during the First World War that military camouflage rapidly evolved. CAMOUFLAGE IN ACTION

There are many different types of camouflage patterns used in military uniforms. Patterns vary according to factors such as the the terrain of deployment, which can be the forest, desert, a snowy landscape, etc.

In 2004 the U.S. Army invested billions of dollars to develop a new camouflage pattern that would conceal soldiers in all sorts of terrain, as well as both by day and night. Yeah. Big flop. Soldiers based in jungle and tropical positions basically became sitting ducks while wearing the Universal Camouflage Pattern, sticking out like a bunch of sore thumbs. The UCP will be completely retired by 2019.

New versions of camo clothing feature pixelated patterns which disrupt outlines and can help wearers avoid radar detection. 116 / THE MONSEY VIEW / July 26, 2017 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

Camouflage doesn’t just apply to clothing. Face paint can help soldiers avoid infrared sensors.


Even ships, vehicles and weapons can tap into the cover of camo.

Snipers often make use of environmental elements like shrubbery or tree stumps to enhance their cover. NATURE’S CAMO

Hashem created many animals with built-in camouflage as a survival and/or hunting mechanism. Big cats blend well into their surroundings to enable them to sneak up on prey. Here a lion hides in similarlycolored savannah grass. Even his eyes are amber!

This butterfly avoids detection while resting on a tree.

Watch where you step! This horned viper blends right in.

The chameleon is wellknown for his ability to change color according to his surroundings.

Some hares turn brown in the summer to match the dirt and white in the winter to match the snow.

How many deer can you find?

E PI S ODE # 3

I AM DESPERATE. After several years of dealing with my Nachman’s extreme hyperactivity, we now gratefully started him on medication. And I’m pining for vacation. This is not an oxymoron: the adrenaline that kicks in when things are hard holds you up, but when it’s gone, and you can let your guard down, you may well collapse. Thanks to a caring mentor who walked me through the challenge, I am aware of this and set out to care for myself so I can care for my family. “Staycation,” I declare. I saw this idea featured gaily in the magazines and it seems attractive. “Who says we have to spend money? I can enjoy vacation in our fivestar home!”

120 / THE MONSEY VIEW / July 26, 2017 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

My husband doesn’t object. We agree that shipping out the kids is too complicated, so instead of an intensive two-day hiatus, I’d take a week off of work and housework, and devote the mornings to vacation: reading, walking, taking long baths, davening. I’d spend the afternoon with the kids and enjoy lazy evenings. I’m proud of my plan. It’s economical, simple and effective. On Day One, Nachman wakes up at 5:30 a.m. and has double the amount of energy that I do. By the time the kids leave at 8:30, I am shaking with hunger and fatigue. I head off to bed — and wake up three hours later in my darkened bedroom, ravenous and wondering if it’s Shabbos, weekday, and do I live on Earth? By noon I’ve regained my equilibrium and head


full-force into vacation mode. I shut the ringers on my phones, get out a good book, prop up my pillows and dive in. The experience is delicious — and I don’t even stop for chocolate, it’s that good. But the clock at my side, which I didn’t glance at even once, worries me now. I take a peek, and my cotton candy fairy-tale land dissolves instantly. The kids will be home in a few minutes. I close my eyes, swallow hard — but there’s something hard there blocking me. This is a mean joke. A measly hour and some — that you call vacation? Well, what could I expect after sleeping off half the morning, I tell myself, inwardly blushing at my laziness. A more honest and kind part of myself admits it’s not laziness — it’s need. I am not one of those who deprive myself of sleep while waving the banner of efficiency. But then what’s left of vacation? Lunchtime finds me tense and irritable. I drag myself out to the park with the children just to survive. Something isn’t working here. Well, tomorrow is another day. I go to sleep with the hope that tomorrow I will finally “redeem” my vacation rights. So dawn breaks, and yes, 5:50 a.m. is better than 5:30, but I’m still finished by the time my vacation officially begins. One precious vacation day follows another, and by the end of the week I’ve read only half a book and feel cheated. It was a good idea — on paper. You know those ideas that are perfect in theory, but just don’t add up in real life? Like some shidduchim where everything seems to fit in, but won’t work when the human factor enters. Staycation with a challenging child at home doesn’t really work, I admit. I’m going to have to do it again, right this time. Soon it’s back to school, yomim tovim, and all that hap-

py, hectic stuff. Then, finally, the time is ripe for a real vacation. A women’s getaway beckons. Many interesting programs are splashed across the page, some of which I’ve always wanted to experience. A famous violinist, a speaker everyone raves about — here it’s all on the menu for my taking. That’s it, you have to work hard if you want a vacation, I decide. We pay some of the large sum upfront, get arrangements for the kids when my husband won’t be available, and I pack my bags. I don’t go with a partner — out of choice. The programs are each spectacular, and I paid for them, so I cannot miss any, can I? But they leave me little “me time”, so by Day Two, I’m smarter. I choose which ones to attend, and enjoy the rest of the time alone. Two nights and three days end really quickly, and soon I’m back home. The first thing I see (well, the second, after the streaked floor) is my husband’s eagerness to see if I’m all “healed.” Do I have to announce that this was the best thing ever and I won’t ever have a hard day for the rest of my life? Truth be told, the retreat was much too busy and noisy, and just not my style. I am sure I won’t do it again. But I plaster on a smile and assure him, “It was ama-aazing.” Because vacation must be the balm for all ails.

I’m proud of my plan. It’s economical, simple and effective.

Days to Serenity

HI EVERYBODY! Here’s what I’m hearing about organizing the home in the summer: A few of you are like, Are you kidding? I want to sit back and not do anything for eight weeks, so why are we having an organizing contest? The rest of you are saying, Yay, I’m so excited for this! Just what I need! Here’s my take: Summer is definitely supposed to be a relaxing time for everyone. What we’re doing here is not contradicting that. On the contrary. We’re giving you a task a day that’s simple and effective for when life gets back into schedule, uh sort of. Whenever that happens. If it runs into more than a 22-minute activity, then you’re defeating the purpose! 15–22 minutes to clean the fridge. 15–22 minutes to organize the junk drawer. 15–22 minutes to move things around in the shed. We’re not Pesach cleaning now! And definitely not making things perfect. Our goal is to take a half-hour tops five days a week through the long days of summer and make your home ready for the hectic days of school/yom tov time. Kudos to all of you who are joining and enjoying! The rest, just rest. ;) Either way, I’m loving this journey, and thank you all for the positive emails!

THURSDAY, JULY 27 GUEST ROOMS A room that sits empty through the week awaiting your guests doesn’t always bode well for clutter. In some houses, the echoes you hear, and not so faintly, is “Where should I put it?” (The clothing that need mending, the outgrown, overgrown, under-grown or otherwise not-useable-atthat-moment clothing) The reply? “Oh, put it into the guest room.” That can be a short-term solution if you shut the door quickly and don’t walk in until the next pile of clutter goes in there. And when your guests call to invite themselves for Shabbos Na-

chamu, you are so thrilled to host Shmilli and Fraidy and their six adorable kids. So let’s make the room presentable. Dump all the stuff from the guest room into your bedroom and redump it back when the guests leave. You were going to do that, weren’t you? Yeah I thought so. • Keep the guest room empty, like literally. Unless it doubles as a office or you keep your treadmill there (which for some reason turns into an exercise machine for more clothing), keep it clutter-free and tchotchke-free. • The closet should have hangers and some basic travel stuff. • Tissues on the night table, Shabbos lamp. A copy of The Monsey View. A nice water bottle. A hand towel. • Extra Pillows. Not much more is needed. If the room is too comfortable, your guests will not want to leave and that poses a dilemma. Where will you redump the stuff from your bedroom?

FRIDAY, JULY 28 POTS AND PANS Give your toddler a pot and a cover for some background music. Pots ‘n pans, oh so grand. Okay, doesn’t really rhyme, but how would we manage without them? • Empty the drawer, give it a wipe (or scrub, ummm, depending on when you cleaned it last). • Before you put them all back in your cabinet, maybe ask yourself if you need all sizes? • Pot missing a cover? Pot looks brandnew even if you have it for years — is it because essentially it is brand-new and was never used? Why not find a different home for them so you can have more space to store your pots neatly? Okay, you can get back to Shabbos preps. We just took a small detour. SUNDAY, JULY 30 PORCH/ DECK I love BBQ season! (I love snow as well but it scares people off when I say that, so we’ll stick to barbecuing on your deck.) • Table and chairs, swimming pool, bikes, scooters, grill. They all belong there if you don’t have a shed to put it in. • Just small details, like arranging them all neatly on the side, so a burger doesn’t fall into the pool, sounds like the right idea. • Sweep the deck to ensure that itty-bitty insects are kept at bay. • The water from the kiddie pool should be emptied each night and the pool turned standing up to dry. • It’s not an easy task to clean your porch every night but maybe make it into an incentive for your kids to get the ice cream or win the Toys 4 U raffle and have them pick up the 29 plastic cups and all the stuff that flew in from the west. MONDAY, JULY 31 LINEN CLOSET The folding and refolding perfectly takes time. Now we’re focusing on emptying the closet.

126 / THE MONSEY VIEW / July 26, 2017 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

• Throw out anything with stains and rips. • Give away what is not being used. • If you have a set that’s missing a sheet or pillowcase, either replace it with a simple white or solid matching color or decide if it goes on the giveaway pile. • The same goes for towels, washcloths and hand towels. Having too many clutters the closet. • Wipe shelves, put in something that smells gooood. Even if the closet is not so organized, once it has that good smell, nobody notices. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 2 PHOTO ALBUMS This is a sore spot for me! I love pictures, and scrapbooking is one of my hobbies, aside from shoveling snow. ;) • The ideal way to keep your pictures organized is to buy matching photo albums in bulk. You line them up neatly, even the empty ones. As soon as you develop the photos, label the album and put the pictures in right away. • If you don’t have albums, get the photo boxes. They’re great for doubles and pictures you don’t put into the album. • Label, label, label! That’s the trick to keeping the pictures in order. Down the road when your grandchildren will want to see your daughter (or you) playing with a fidget spinner, you will be able to find that specific picture in no time. Granted, if your photos are all over the place, this will take more than 22 minutes. We will continue with the photos on Thursday so you have more time and can go out and buy albums and boxes. Catch you later, Sara! Sara Goldstein is a professional organizer serving Upstate, Brooklyn and beyond. COMING NEXT WEEK: THURSDAY, AUGUST 3: PHOTOS CONT. FRIDAY, AUGUST 4: CANS/PASTAS ETC.

Absolutely not!

It’s a sign that the time has come for you to spread the light of your Torah to others.

I’m sure all the difficult questions I couldn’t answer were signs that I should discover you.

Stand up, and accept a position that is fitting for you.

Real Estate The VA Loan A TOPIC THAT WE DON’T HIT UPON often is special mortgage programs. The reason why I don’t write about them usually is because, for the most part, they don’t apply to our reading audience. One such program is the VA (Veterans Administration) loan. This is the loan designed for members of the military or those who have served in the military. Lately, though, I have come across some borrowers, from our community, who have served in the U.S. Army. So, although rare, in our circles especially, this loan can be applicable to some. This loan allows for 100% financing, no money down. There is no MI. This MI, mortgage insurance, is what is usually charged to borrowers borrowing less than 20% down. On a $400,000 loan, this savings can be as much as $350 per month! For the veteran, this loan is great and has lots of benefits. The rates are the same as other loans and the benefits of $0 down and no monthly MI is huge. For both the homeowners selling their home and for the realtor putting the deal together there are some challenges in accepting the offer with VA financing. Firstly, even though the loan can be $0 down, no seller wants to go into a contract of sale with no money given at contract signing. What would stop the buyer from walking away from the deal if there was no contract deposit at stake? What is the solution? The second concern is the appraisal. Appraisals on VA loans are notoriously problematic. Often the appraisal values don’t come in and there are repairs required to be fixed prior to closing. The VA takes an active role in that appraisals are ordered from the VA directly, there-

Although rare, in our circles especially, this loan can be applicable to some.

fore in a lot of cases the appraisers are not local. If the realtor, or even the buyer, wants to appeal the value with a new comparable or a question regarding a value adjustment, for the most part even though there is a process on how to do this, no changes will be made because the appraiser has no one to answer to. If there was an appraisal management company, and received appeals to value, the appraisal management company will require a response, whether positive or negative. The VA is huge and they don’t require the same type of responsiveness. This challenge is very hard to overcome, especially if there are multiple offers on a property. The VA loan also has different qualification requirements. The VA considers the number of family members and what residual income is left over after the mortgage is paid. A calculation is made to make sure that the borrower will be able to afford the payment. Therefore, if we have two veterans and both earn the same, and purchase a similar property with the same purchase price and taxes, but one has four family members and one has seven family members, the one with a smaller family may get approved while the one with a larger family may not! So, while a VA loan may not apply to vast readers of this paper, this loan is certainly interesting.
