Bain Hazmanim is here. The outdoors beckon and everyone has an eye for a place away, far out, with fresh mountain air. If you’re looking for an invigorating mountain retreat, with a cooler temperature than can be found locally and a destination closer than New Hampshire, Killington may just be your place. Temperatures in August average in the 70s during the day and drop to the 50s at night. (Bring along warm sweaters!) All travel times are calculated from Killington Grand Resort Hotel, which is the center of Killington.

THIS WEEK Decoriel presents a

RE: PEDESTRIAN SAFETY (ISSUE #106)

Everest Equity Company , Inc. THE

ResidentialandCommercialMortgages TwoExecutiveBoulevard,Suite201 Suffern,NewYork10901 845.357.6900

Safety has become a hot topic these days — for both drivers and pedestrians. Still, as road safety corrections are put into place and safety laws are put into practice, let us remember that ultimately our safety is only and completely in the hands of Hashem. We’d therefore want to take safety measures in the form of a tefillah or personal improvement as a zechus for our safe return. May Hashem protect us and be with us when we go and when we come and whenever — wherever we are. P.K.

In response to the letter that “Another Broken Friend” wrote in response to to R. Niederman’s letter about pedestrian safety: While your pain about the Route 59 tragedy cannot be discounted, it does not in any way negate the importance of R. Niederman’s message. I reread both letters and he/she does not blame the people involved in the Route 59 accident at all (as you seem to imply). Rather, he/she is talking to the nameless woman on Maple Avenue (and other women, men, children, etc.) who carelessly do their own thing and don’t consider the cars on the road. This is not a rant against Yiddishe mothers at all! It’s a plea to all Yiddishe people to be careful! When I was a child, we had two simple rules which many of you may remember as well: 1.When you see a car, move to the side of the road. 2. Look both ways before crossing. Please help me understand why I see people sauntering slowly across the street in a 30 mph zone. Please explain to me why I need to navigate an obstacle course of children on bikes while their mothers

sit on the side and don’t tell their kids to get out of the way. Please help me understand why the driver has to constantly look both ways to avoid collisions with people darting out into an intersection or from between parked cars. As a pedestrian for many years and now a driver, I can honestly admit that a pedestrian cannot comprehend the heart-stopping moment of realizing that young man has suddenly materialized in front of your car and that there’s a whole row of cars in back of you, leaving you with the choice of hitting a pedestrian or being involved in a rear-end collision. Or worse, realizing that your frantic stomp on the brake may be too late. As a pedestrian, it is very easy to blame the “crazy drivers.” You may be right, but I don’t want you to be dead right. Please do not put yourself into a dangerous position. A Driver Who Cares

Dear “Another Broken Family,” I read your letter with a mixture of shock and confusion. Shocked that you would interpret R. Niederman’s letter in such a manner and confused that you believe that the writer didn’t have the pedestrian’s safety in mind. Where does a mother being up all night with a crying baby enter the picture of pedestrian and driver safety? As a mother with young children, who both drives and walks with a stroller, I see both sides of the safety issue as valid. When I am driving along main roads and even smaller roads, I am appalled to see young mothers pushing carriages with children as well as children on the side using their carriages as a way to get drivers to stop. It is very commonplace to see a mother on Maple Avenue standing safely on the sidewalk while her stroller is in the street, hoping and waiting for a car to stop so she can cross. As a driver, I can tell you that it would not be safe for me to make a short stop and let her cross the street while there are cars behind me and in front of me. She should cross at crosswalks, intersections where there are lights, or when there is a lull in cars, and I say that because I care for her — not because I am sitting in an air-conditioned car comfortable and annoyed as you suggest drivers feel. Also, drivers are focusing on the road in front of them and not on pedestrians on the sidewalk who are looking for an opportunity to dart out and attempt to cross between cars. This is so incredibly unsafe. I have witnessed a boy on a bike being hit by a car doing that very same thing, crossing the street on his bike between cars. The driver who hit the child kept repeating, “He came out of nowhere... he came out of nowhere.” Baruch Hashem, the kid was unharmed. Do you know what that driver felt like? Had their story had a different ending he could have spent the rest of his life in deep, deep guilt over something that was never his fault. The road is for cars and for drivers who are looking ahead of them and trying to drive safely which pedestrians need to keep in mind. The sidewalk is for pedestrians as are crosswalks, intersections and corners. As a mother who walks down Maple Avenue to the grocery on an almost daily basis with a stroller, I can tell you that I stick to the sidewalk and cross when the lights at the intersection are red. I know that cars and drivers cannot always make split-second decisions to stop because I am in the way and I respect the drivers. Maybe it is because I am a driver that I have that healthy respect for the road. Living near a busy street I witness “almost” accidents every single day. There is a screech of skidding breaks, drivers stopping and screaming out the window, “Whose child is this?” Sometimes it’s children and sometimes it’s adults, but it’s one common theme: not a care in the

world to anyone but themselves. Being dan l’kaf zechus, I can only say, that these pedestrians never saw the limited view from the driver’s seat or ever thought about the lifelong repercussions that can occur from their actions. Don’t get me started on all the men and bochurim dressed completely in black trying to cross Maple Avenue at night in the Monsey Boulevard section, when I am driving through Maple Avenue and my window is slightly foggy and maybe there is even a little drizzle or fog in the air combined with bright glare and reflections from other cars. I drive with my heart in my stomach, hesitantly, foot by foot, as shadows and silhouettes emerge from the haze inches from my car. Do they even know what they look like to a driver? I have oftentimes tried to take a picture just to show you the view but the pictures come up solid black. Put on a blindfold to get an idea.. Now about that road...there is some responsibility for the drivers too: Not stopping properly at stop signs, red lights and school buses, or driving too fast, especially when there are kids around. If both drivers and pedestrians would mutually show some respect for each other, Rockland will be a safer place for all. Signed, A Mother with a Stroller and A Driver Who Drove for Two Years without Air Conditioning in her Car

Dear Taken Aback, Pursuant to R. Niederman’s letter, and subsequently yours, some observations can be made. It’s quite obvious that both of you have written your submissions in the heat of the moment and under considerable stress. R. N. had nearly collided with a young mother and her children l”a, while you were grieving for your friend who suffered a tragedy, l”a. Her letter was one of pedestrian safety awareness while yours was nonconstructive and somewhat condemning — citing her lack of compassion and understanding. In reading her letter, I sensed that she is very concerned about pedestrian and driver safety, hence the strong tone. She is in no way denigrating Yidishe mothers — I wonder why you thought so. She is expressing anger at situations where mothers aren’t paying full attention to safety rules thereby putting themselves, their children and others in danger. (There are marked and very definite crossing areas on most roads in Monsey that are designed to facilitate safe crossings.) It is now Erev Tisha B’Av, let’s stop for a moment and reflect upon what we should be concentrating heavily on — loving a fellow Jew, and not belittling others or making hurtful comments. May Hashem look down upon us with rachamim, and may He hasten biyas haMoshiach to free us from all our tzaros! From a Grandmother Who Has Witnessed Many Near

RE: SEEKING INFO (ISSUE #108) Dear Concerned Parent, My child had a tick, and I was able to take it out. Two weeks later, my child felt weak. I was able to see a mark of a bite as big as 6–7 inches. Her back was hurting her and she was constantly tired. After the medication prescribed by our doctor didn’t help, someone referred me to take a homeopathic combination by the name “Pro Meir’s Tick Balance” together with “Pro Meir’s Throat, Ear Relief & Winter Health” from the company All Natural. These two things, baruch Hashem, helped her. My daughter no longer has any weakness and completely recovered. These two products are available at your local health food store. For any questions, I can be contacted through The Monsey View. A Parent

In regard to the parent who seeks advice for Lyme disease, I can tell you from experience that Lyme disease doesn’t always get healed so fast. I don’t know which antibiotics you took; I was prescribed a strong antibiotic twice a day for four weeks, which my doctor said was the minimum dose. Baruch Hashem, I didn’t need more than that, but he did say that he sometimes prescribes it up to eight months, as needed. I was treated by an expert in Lyme, Dr. Loen Kohanbash at ParCare in Williamsburg. He is very skilled in this field. Many travel to him after contracting Lyme disease, and local organizations refer patients to him. He accepts Medicaid. For those who have private insurance, there may be specialists who are more local. I can be contacted through The Monsey View for phone numbers. S.H.

EXTRA HOURS OFF Thank you for providing a forum for sharing our comments and concerns. I am wondering if there is someone out there who can explain to me why day camps end early on Erev Tisha B’Av. There are no major preps to do (unless it takes you a while to switch into your Crocs and boil some eggs). Since most day camps start late the day after the fast, we pay a small fortune for a full week, when in reality, Thursday is the only full day of camp this week! I’d appreciate if someone can enlighten me as to why the system is this way. May we all be in Yerushalayim next year! C.K.B.

As told to: Basya Lev

I HAVE A STORY that happened twice and I feel inspired to tell it to all. The zechus of helping someone do the mitzvah of kibud av v’em is truly amazing, especially when it goes beyond the call of duty. I have elderly parents who have full-time aides, but my siblings and I have set up a rotation to make sure one of us spends Shabbos with them in their home each week. Some of my siblings don’t live in their vicinity and have asked me to find them a place to stay when it’s “their” Shabbos. I have a friend who lives close to my parents and one time I asked her if my brother could stay at her home. She said she used to have place in her basement for guests, but had turned that area into a playroom and it was not always cleaned up. I reassured her that it was fine, since he would be spending most of the time at my parents’ home. It worked out well and she let him sleep there the next few times when he needed a place. One day my friend mentioned to me that each time there was a rainstorm her basement got flooded, including the playroom. The interesting thing was that twice when my brother stayed at her home and there was a rainstorm, the basement got flooded, but the playroom wasn’t touched. The water stopped by the door!

will address food and exercise, and the second half of the text will discuss the importance of our emotional well-being — how to deal with stress, cravings and how to cope on an emotional level. And to get the most out of the article, the idea will be to integrate your physical and emotional selves. I hope this makes you smile. I know I feel pretty good about taking this approach.

Technical Tips for Losing Weight

An Integrative Approach to Weight Loss SUCCESSFUL WEIGHT LOSS IS COMPLEX and requires an integrative approach. What I mean is that focusing entirely on diet alone, or spending only time on your emotional wellbeing, will only yield short-term results. This is because oftentimes, despite the fact that countless people simply want a food plan to lose weight, only a handful of them actually stick to their plan in the long term. The reality is that the majority of us, myself included, overeat when we let ourselves get too hungry. But more often than not, we overeat as a reaction to discomfort in our bodies — for example, tightness in our chest and throat, accompanied by negative thoughts such as sadness and guilt — can get us to binge on too many treats. You might tell yourself, I’m overwhelmed with work, and I deserve a slice of cake! And it’s fine to indulge every now and then. It’s overeating on treats, rather, that can cause problems. If your kids are grouchy, for instance, the negative thoughts will likely pile up. And to cope with the stress, you may turn to the fridge and pantry. Let’s face it: High-carb foods will comfort you in the moment, but they aren’t a sustainable coping mechanism. And in terms of dieting alone, I really think a food plan is only so effective. How long will you stick to your food plan before you veer off-course? The majority of our struggles boil down to being bored, tired, or so anxious that we feel compelled to treat ourselves more often than we should. As such, chances are a food plan alone will not last very long. The only way most people can lose weight and successfully maintain it is by taking that integrative approach I mentioned — that is, by seeing your body as a complex entity with a range of thoughts, emotions and physical sensations. Therefore, it’s practically impossible to take care of only your physical self without looking after your emotional health. Now that we’re on the same page with this, I would like to take an integrative approach to my article; the first part

Even though every excuse you come up with is valid, it’s still important to recognize that you are stronger than the thoughts and feelings at the back of your mind.

• Many people wake up to a coffee in the morning, and that’s perfectly okay. However, if you want a good cleanse, drink a glass of warm water with a squeeze of lemon before your coffee. • Another great way to cleanse is to eat a red pepper on an empty stomach in the morning. • Keep treats like chocolate in the freezer so they’re more enjoyable to eat. Savor them over a warm drink, or let them melt on their own so you get more out of them. • Hot and spicy foods rev up your metabolism. Just make sure your stomach can handle the heat! • Keep a food log and write down everything you eat in real time. This is much more practical than trying to remember what you ate at the end of the day. The entries only take about 20 seconds each.

Using an index card, write down a specific goal on one side. For example, state that you want to exercise for 10 minutes each day for the next five days on the elliptical. On the other side of the card, write down every excuse you can think of not to work out. Maybe you’re too tired, too busy or simply apathetic. Maybe you don’t have an elliptical, you don’t feel

like going to the gym or it’s too hot to go on a walk outside. The takeaway here is that even though every excuse you come up with is valid, it’s still important to recognize that you are stronger than the thoughts and feelings at the back of your mind. You have power, and you can choose to be strong! Unless you are paralyzed, imagine someone offer-

ing you a thick wad of cash to work out for 10 minutes even though you are really tired. Would you accept the offer? Or, say someone close to you is sick and the cure is your working out for 10 minutes. Would you make the time for it? Although these are imaginary situations, they illustrate that you are stronger than your thoughts and feelings.

AFTER SPENDING THE hardest three-week period of the Jewish calendar filled with anxiety and trepidation, with the pinnacle of intensity on Tisha B’Av, we are blessed with Shabbos Nachamu, a Shabbos specifically aimed at consoling the Jewish people. The Shabbosos of consolation begin on Shabbos Nachamu, but seven haftaros of consolation are read between now and Rosh Hashana. The idea of consolation is so important in Yiddishkeit that we gather together for seven consecutive weeks to listen to the words of the prophet Yeshayahu. As we absorb the words of Yeshayahu and reflect on how to apply them in our day-to-day lives, im yirtze Hashem we find a way to climb out of the depths of the Three Weeks and Tisha B’Av and into the light of the Yomim Tovim. It is a slow journey, but we do it together as a nation. All over the world, Jews are reading the same haftorah each Shabbos, which creates a sense of a worldwide network of comfort and consolation. Sometimes when people experience tragedy and suffering, I am at loss as to know how best to react. I am worried I may say the wrong thing and increase the person’s pain. The issue with my worrying about saying the wrong thing is that it can lead me to saying nothing, and sometimes saying nothing can be worse than saying the wrong thing. If the per-

74 / THE MONSEY VIEW

son is a close friend, I may know exactly what this person needs, but sometimes, even with a close friend, knowing what to say or do can be hard. There are many different approaches on how best to comfort someone who is mourning the loss of a relative or who is experiencing hard times. The concepts of comfort and consolation run deeply through Jewish sources, and many interesting ideas and techniques can also be adapted from general psychology. Sometimes a person needs you to be physically close, while other times, all a person needs is space. Perhaps the person suffering is in need of reflection so that they can know that others relate or they may need someone to listen without responding. A kind word can help or can be the last thing that a mourner wants to hear. Suffering, mourning and sadness are uniquely experienced by each individual, therefore it makes sense that different people appreciate different forms of compassion and sympathy. I am grateful that in Judaism we have something to say to someone who is in mourning. When we encounter someone in aveilus we don’t have to struggle to break the silence, because Hashem has given us the exact right words to say. That first moment when we aim to alleviate the mourner’s pain and to show the person who is suffering that we are here for them is integral. The question I always have for myself, after that first moment, is what does this person need in order to feel heard and comforted today, next week, or the next few months and beyond. Over time, the needs of the person may change. Perhaps, the mourner isn’t ready to reach out while they are overwhelmed during the early stages of mourning, but will need a listening ear in several months once they are truly able to process the pain. I understand that every-


one needs something different and I have found that the best thing to do is to ask. How you ask will depend on the individual and what type of relationship you have with them. It is important not to be intrusive, but, at the same time, if the person understands that you want to be there for them in the way they most need it, when they are ready they will be able to reach out to you. The need for reaching out to people who are in pain does not only occur after a death. There are many situations where members of our community would benefit from knowing that someone is thinking about them, but the question always is how best to go about it. People cherish their privacy, therefore there is a fine line that should never be crossed which may lead the per-

A kind word can help or can be the last thing that a mourner wants to hear. son to feel embarrassed. At the same time, some people will suffer in silence, waiting for someone to knock on their door or for their phone to ring. If you know someone is struggling and you pass them in the street, if you look them in the eye and smile they will know you care. This simple action could lead them to call you and let you know what would help them in their time of need. A simple smile can be the key to unlock feelings of hurt that they may be dealing with and give them the strength to reach out for help. Every year, Hashem gives us seven opportunities to gather together on Shabbos to create an environment of sympathy, empathy and compassion in order to climb from the depths of the Three Weeks to the heights of the Yomim Tovim. We gather together because when a person is going through a hard time, feeling isolated can magnify the intensity of the feelings. If we are guided by this principle of providing comfort and consolation as a group experience that happens over time, we can understand how best to help people who are in mourning or who are going through hard times and struggling. There is always a benefit to people knowing that others care and are thinking of them. They may not respond to your consolation in the way you anticipated, but the fact that they know someone cares and wants to be there for them could provide the emotional strength they need to get through the day. If we reach out and are there to comfort and console each other, just like Hashem reaches out to us, perhaps next year we will be welcoming Moshiach.

Mahwah Residents Unite to Fight Against North Jersey Eruv UPSET TO DISCOVER THAT AN ERUV had been put up within their community, more than 200 Mahwah residents flocked to an area park last week, the first step in a grassroots effort to have the eruv removed. VIN News reported that Mayor Bill Laforet said that he had only recently been informed of the 22-foot-long white PVC piping that had been installed on utility poles within Mahwah. Laforet ordered the eruv to be removed by August 4th, saying that it violated a town ordinance that prohibits any signs posted on trees, poles or rocks. Laforet said that because the piping would indicate where carrying would be permitted on Shabbos, it falls under the legal definition of a sign and therefore cannot be placed on utility poles in the township. While Laforet may have been unaware of the eruv until two weeks ago, Mahwah police chief Jim Batelli said

that he had been informed of the eruv in May, as had some officials at Mahwah Town Hall. Organizer Robert Ferguson stressed the importance of focusing any possible effort to have the eruv removed on the legal aspect of the matter and not on religion. “We do not not want these people living in our neighborhoods,” said Ferguson. “We want them following the law.” Still, numerous comments made it clear that Mahwah residents are afraid of an influx of Jewish residents, with several remarks alluding to existing problems in Kiryas Joel, Rockland County, Lakewood, Toms River and Jack-

76 / THE MONSEY VIEW / August 2, 2017 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

son, all of which have large Jewish populations. Other remarks discussed recent busloads of out-of-state children using local parks and out-of-state residents knocking on doors in the township, offering residents cash for their houses. Organizers urged attendees to report any of the above activity to local police. An ordinance enacted just last week will limit use of township parks to local residents only. Speaking for the Monsey eruv, Rabbi Chaim Steinmetz said that the eruv was constructed legally with the approvals of Orange and Rockland, which owns the poles, and local officials. He said that the eruv extends into Mahwah, Upper Saddle River and Montvale because it was the only way to provide coverage for all residents of Suffern, Airmont and Chestnut Ridge. Rabbi Steinmetz also said that the eruv should not be viewed as a planned expansion into Mahwah and its adjacent neighborhoods in Northern New Jersey, but rather as a service to people in existing communities in Rockland County who are currently outside the eruv’s boundaries. Orange and Rockland spokesperson Mike Donovan said that opposition of this nature to an eruv in the area is unprecedented. “We have never seen anything on this scale before,” said Donovan. “We usually get a flurry of questions right away in a new area, but then it kind of dies down.” Speaking after the meeting, Laforet said that residents of his township are fearful of what the eruv may bring. “You hear about what has gone on in Kiryas Joel. Communities in Rockland County that have been decimated for whatever reason that has unfortunately been tagged to this community,” said Laforet. “The fear is what has happened historically does not happen here in Mahwah. I believe that is an honest concern.”

march Chapter Twenty By: Chany G. Rosengarten

Recap: Henya gets the entire town excited about hosting guests and newcomers.

SHE AWOKE. SITTING IN BED, her spine ramrod and alert, Henya dared not feather the air with breath. Something horrible in her dream… or was it real? She sniffed the air for smoke, listened for movement, sought out the danger. She wiggled her toes, though she was afraid to move in the darkness. In the mirror, a glint of light. Danger. Gripped by whispering danger she felt along her duvet to the diamond-shaped cutout in her linen, for the blanket within. It was twisted like a cowboy’s lasso, the tossed line of a shipwrecked boat. The house was silent but she

saw, through the curtains, a slip of moonlight. Her heart beating. Fear. She remembered. Bianca was here. There was a soothing there, a pacifying, a calm rustle, like… when her mother appeared, in nightmares, patting, caressing and shushing, until the heart returned to itself. Convincing Bianca, then her husband, then Bianca again, and her doctor… Henya had never worked this hard, and she knew now what Yosef Yitzchok might have endured on his way to building this shtetl. But she was here. Bianca. And now she could heal. That first supper, she’d set the table for a king. Both Mr. Heller — whom she loathed by now, but would forever remain civil toward — and his wife, sat down while she served. Yosef Yitzchok, too, made a great effort to remain open and friendly, chatting with Mr. Heller about his business, talking about the sewage pump they were now installing, about the deed on the house, steering clear of the subjects that excited him most, the people, the animals, the trees and water, mostly the town, the dream he’d created. But they spoke well enough while Henya plied them with stuffed peppers, stuffed chicken bottoms, and a letcho full of kroft. They all retired early, Henya clearing up from dinner and prepping for the next day, peeling mushrooms, de-stemming green beans, keeping herself busy and happy. Her friend was here. She wondered, too, about the time frame. Already, she sensed that the air in her house was shifting, giving way for others. She worried about all the things Yosef Yitzchok had said but she’d been too adamant to hear. Now she was in her bed, and restless, afraid. Her dreams had been disturbing. She was there again, in the shock. She lay back down on her quilt, smoothing it, attempting to dream into its comfort. She lay,

Pudding-based

Desserts

Rediscover homemade pudding’s comforting simplicity. See how simple it is to prepare and then use the following base recipe to create these three delicious and easy desserts that take just minutes to prepare. If making homemade pudding is completely beyond you, don’t worry, you can just as easily use instant pudding, without anyone being the wiser… Either way, these Shabbos Nachamu desserts are sure to be showstoppers!

VANILLA OR CHOCOLATE PUDDING INGREDIENTS: 2/3 cup sugar ¼ cup cornstarch ¼ teaspoon salt 1/3 cup cocoa (for chocolate pudding) 2 ½ cups soy milk 4 egg yolks ¼ stick margarine 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

DIRECTIONS: 1. Place a sieve over a medium bowl and set aside. 2. In a medium pot, off the heat, whisk together sugar, cornstarch and salt. If making chocolate pudding, add cocoa powder. Slowly add milk, a few tablespoons at a time, making sure to dissolve cornstarch. Whisk in egg yolks. 3. Mixing constantly, cook over medium heat until bubbles appear. Reduce heat to low and cook for an additional 2 minutes, whisking constantly. Remove from heat; immediately pour through sieve into bowl. Stir margarine and vanilla extract into hot pudding. 4. Place plastic wrap directly on surface of pudding, to prevent skin from forming. Chill at least 3 hours. Whisk pudding well before serving.

PEANUT BUTTER AND CHOCOLATE PARFAITS INGREDIENTS: 1 ½ cups whip cream ¼ cup creamy peanut butter 1 recipe cooled chocolate pudding 6 white sandwich cookies

DIRECTIONS: 1. In a large bowl, whip 1 cup whip cream until peaks form. Reserve. 2. Place peanut butter and remaining ½ cup (unwhipped) whip cream in another bowl; whisk until smooth. Add the whipped whip cream and gently combine peanut butter mixture with whipped cream, using a rubber spatula.

BOSTON CREAM PIE CAKE: 3 eggs

½ cup soy milk

1 cup sugar

¾ stick margarine

1 ½ cups flour

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 ½ teaspoons baking powder ½ teaspoon salt

½ recipe cooled vanilla pudding

CHOCOLATE GLAZE: ¼ cup whip cream

4 ounces baking chocolate, chopped

DIRECTIONS: 1. Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 9-inch round pan with cooking spray. 2. In a bowl, beat eggs and sugar until thickened and lightened in color, about 5 minutes. Slowly mix in flour, baking powder and salt. 3. Combine soy milk and margarine in a small pot and bring to a light boil. Mix in vanilla extract and pour the soy milk mixture into the batter. 4. Pour into prepared round pan and bake for about 35-40 minutes. When cake is completely cooled, split cake horizontally with a sharp serrated knife. 5. Spread bottom half of cake with the vanilla pudding and gently place top of cake on pudding layer. 6. To make chocolate glaze: Bring whip cream to a boil in a pot. Remove from heat and add chopped chocolate, stirring until smooth. Wait until glaze has thickened and cooled, about 10 minutes, and then spread over cake with a spatula. Let glaze drip down sides of cake, and let set for about 15 minutes.

DIRECTIONS: 1. Preheat oven to 400°. Place squares of puff pastry on a parchment paper and prick all over with a fork, to prevent pastry from puffing up unevenly. Bake until pastry is golden, about 20-25 minutes. Let cool completely. 2. To assemble napoleons: Top one pastry square with pudding and sliced strawberries, top with another pastry square and more pudding and sliced strawberries, top with a third puff pastry and dust with confectioners sugar. 3. In a small plate mix strawberry jam and water until semi-smooth, add additional water if needed. Sprinkle over napoleon or over plate.

TENOYIM CELEBRATED IN A HOUSE

What’s really special about this tenoyim is that since it’s done in a large home, we’re able to set up four different spaces — each with a unique feel! As it’s summertime, we make sure to keep the color light, and the rooms airy for an expansive, inviting feel.

Keeping with the host’s preferences, we dress the men’s room in simple, yet elegant gold and silver. The towering height and combination of muted gold, silver and crystal make quite the statement; there’s no need for flowers here.

At the drink station, glass dispensers filled with pina colada, cranberry and mango drink add a touch of summer color, while keeping the clear look.

We’re lucky to be working with a white, marblelook kitchen. Plexi dishes of various heights work perfectly here! Cakes of varying heights atop plexi glasses, plexi drawers filled with crackers and breadsticks beneath white salad bowls, tall wine glasses filled with cookies, and shallow nut and chocolate dishes allow us to keep the spacious feel.

This elongated twig topped by a nice cluster of flowers brings a touch of elegance without obscuring the spread or overcrowding the room.

Shelving adds some more height and stacks the miniatures, so that each one gets its just due. Lots of white in the cakes and mousses is just another way of keeping things light.

INDOOR ROOM

Opting for a summer feel, we choose lacy tablecloths in light shades of yellow and green for these small tables. The graceful glasses add another touch of elegant green without overburdening the tabletops. White chairs are the natural color of choice for a summer event with an outdoor feel. Since we’re using cocktail tables, we don’t want to clutter the tabletop with flowers. We’re lucky that the room has a high ceiling, so we choose to go “up” instead: Tall vases topped with white and green hydrangeas and mini yellow roses are quite the thing!

102 / THE MONSEY VIEW


Out on the porch, we want to keep that outdoorsy look. Utilizing the same flowers we’ve used indoors, we cluster them differently to match the ambiance here. These crossed twigs, with flowers spilling over from all directions, fit the bill perfectly.

OUTDOORS

Grass table toppers work wonders for outdoor elegance! Topping full length, light-green tablecloths, they make for a sophisticated, yet natural, backdrop setting for small candles and glass bottles.

OVER THE PAST THREE YEARS, WE HAVE SUCCESSFULLY PLANNED AND EXECUTED HUNDREDS OF ORIGINAL EVENTS IN A MYRIAD OF THEMES. WHILE EACH WAS DIFFERENT AND TOTALLY FRESH, THEY WERE ALIKE IN THEIR AUTHENTICITY OF THEIR HOST’S DISTINCTIVE EXPRESSION. WE PLEDGE TO COLLABORATE WITH YOU AND REALIZE YOUR DREAM EVENT WHILE RESPECTING YOUR BUDGETARY APPETITE.

Welcoming the Newest Member of the Family

WITH JEWELS

Monsey jewelers share the ins and outs of jewelry-buying for your kallah. 108 / THE MONSEY VIEW / August 2, 2017 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


KALLAH BRACELETS WITH BEJEWELED

1

2

When do people generally buy a kallah bracelet?

Most kallahs receive a bracelet upon their engagement. We offer the mechutanim (to be) a choice so the kallah can choose a bracelet she’ll love! We also accommodate mechutanim traveling out of town to enable them, too, to experience Be Jeweled’s gracious service.

3

What’s the price range of the average bracelet you sell? It’s hard to quote an average, since we respect all our customers’ standards. The average kallah bracelet will often cost between $1,800 - $2,300. Of course, we offer a magnificent selection of higher-end, designer pieces, as well.

What’s trending in bracelets now? There are the classic styles that many opt for, specifically the tennis bracelet — which can be designed in a variety of different styles. As for what’s current, there’s never one style that gets purchased exclusively. We have an amazing selection to choose from and our goal is to have each customer purchase the bracelet that suits their style, budget and taste!

4

How often do you sell a diamond bracelet to someone other than a kallah? A lot more often than you think! People like to upgrade and update their jewelry and will often trade in their outdated pieces. Since diamonds make the best gifts when it comes to yom tov or any occasion, a bracelet will very often be the gifting choice. We also sell diamond bracelets which are suitable for young adults.

5

Do you have any tips for cleaning diamond bracelets? It’s important to bring in your jewelry to a reliable jeweler for a once-a-year maintenance and cleaning. Jewelry that’s cared for delicately will last longer and leave the wearer feeling treated at all times.

ENGAGEMENT RINGS WITH SIMCHY AND ESTI ROSENFELD OF FORTUNATE JEWELS

1

When do people generally buy the engagement ring? Some mechutanim buy a ring before the engagement (though they often end up coming back for ring size adjustments). Those who present the ring after the engagement generally buy a bracelet to present at the l’chaim. We give them a plastic ring sizer to take home so that they can get the ring size, and then purchase the ring for the vort.

2

3

What’s your average price range in diamond rings?

That’s like asking for an “average price” for a car. It depends on whether you’re going for a small family car, a trendy sports car, or a Rolls Royce. In fact, the price range in jewelry is even broader than in cars! Additionally, though the engagement ring and diamond are generally purchased at the same time, they are really two separate entities. Engagement rings are typically valued within a broad, yet set price range ($700-$5,000), whereas a diamond, as the saying goes, is priceless. Within our large selection of diamonds, you’ll find so many different shapes and sizes, the prices are bound to vary greatly! Center diamonds start at $800 and can go up to $10 million! Depending on the buyer’s preferences (and financial situation), we sell diamonds from a starting price range of $1,500.

How do I detect quality in a ring? If you want to spend a little extra on one specific piece of jewelry for a kallah, we recommend the diamond gets it. Diamonds, as the famous DeBeer’s slogan goes, are forever; it’s not something a woman will exchange, sell or stop wearing because it went out of style. Even when women redesign their setting, they keep their engagement diamond.

That said, it’s hard for the untrained eye to know what to look for; it’s important to choose a jeweler you trust. Based on Simchy Rosenfeld’s background in high-end jewelry manufacturing, we know how to perform thorough quality control on each piece that makes its way onto our table. Some things we examine are: • Polish and metal/gold finish. • Proper setting in terms of height and symmetry. Our recommended minimum for the 4 C’s: Color – I, Clarity –SI2, Cut – Excellent, Carat Weight – 1 carat and up.

110 / THE MONSEY VIEW / August 2, 2017 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


4

What’s trending now? The most popular trends are in the following design categories:

5

How often do you sell diamonds that aren’t for kallahs?

Quite often. Since chasunah takanos were enacted in several kehillos, many kallahs are gifted with CZ centers during their engagement. At a later time, the husband often purchases a diamond for his wife to replace the CZ. We also sell many replacement diamonds when women lose their rings. While we cannot obliterate the agmas nefesh of losing an engagement ring, we strongly recommend that people purchase jewelry insurance to mitigate the heartache over financial loss (though we can do nothing about the sentimental loss).

Offshoots in design and style can be created within each category.

6

Do you have any tips for easy ring cleaning?

That’s an excellent question! Rings and other everyday jewelry are especially prone to losing their sparkle to dust and moisture. It’s a pity not to invest the tiny bit of effort it takes to restore the brilliance. A safe, at-home cleaning method is to simply apply a solution of warm water and dishwashing soap, and then brush with a soft toothbrush before wiping with a lint-free cloth. When cleaning jewelry over a sink, plug the drain to catch stones that may come loose. Routine inspection and cleanings help assure that your jewelry shines the way it’s meant to! It’s also worth mentioning that jewelry care includes protecting it from harmful chemicals. Exposure to chlorine, for example, can damage and discolor the ring and weaken the prongs, making stone loss possible.

We also want to emphasize that jewelry purchases are expensive; make sure you go to a knowledgeable dealer you know you can trust.

“I

“I STARTED HEALING the first time I spoke about my Lyme disease,” says Rachel. “After a year of suffering and groping in the dark, not to mention spending thousands of dollars, I started living again. “A world of organizations opened up for me: support groups, medical referrals and good old-fashioned friendships. I laugh about my secrecy today. I mean, it’s not as if I purposely imported deer and implanted a tic onto my body.” Alcoholics Anonymous seems to agree with Rachel. “You’re only as sick as your secrets,” goes the popular saying at AA, one of the most successful programs in treating alcohol addicts. As long as you keep your addictions a secret, you distance healing and help. As soon as you admit to those around you that you have a problem, the solution is closer than ever. In fact, the reveal-

114 / THE MONSEY VIEW / August 2, 2017 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

ing of the secret is the first step in healing. “The secrecy was worse than the sickness,” Rachel continues. “The fear of exposing that I had Lyme paralyzed me, and I often found myself crying in frustration. I would offer to make supper for a kimpeturin while feeling so sick myself just to keep the secret intact.” Esther agrees. She claims that she didn’t suffer as much from her congenital heart disease as much as she suffered from the secret. “I once told my second grade teacher that, “I can’t run because I’ll overwork my heart,” and she found it hysterical. At PTA she shared this incident with my parents. I was then taught a whole list of lies to memorize and practice. I was trained like an army sergeant.” Therefore, Esther was so used to keeping everything taboo that when her child was diagnosed with dyslexia, her knee-jerk reaction was to do the same. Her husband didn’t

let her, though. And today she’s grateful. Her daughter is a confident, open sixth grader with a large group of friends. “The funny thing is,” Esther says, “everyone would’ve figured it out anyway, but my daughter would’ve felt defective keeping such a secret.” She looks pensive, “That’s what I felt like as a kid. Defective. Second best, because if it’s so embarrassing to admit that I visited a cardiologist,

The revealing of a secret is the first step in healing. there must be something really, inherently wrong with me.” “And, I’ll tell you a secret,” she chuckles at the word secret, “when it came to shidduchim, we had to share


Now, they’re where they belong – proudly splashed on magazines and part of performances. They bring light to the world and happiness to many homes. the information anyway. So I can’t think of a single benefit keeping a secret has.” Well, it seems secrecy is a hotly debated topic regardless of the society you live in. The strong desire everyone has to “fit in” and not be looked upon as different has made secret-keeping an explosive topic, at best. The mirrors in army bases remind soldiers every day how important military secrets are. Each time a soldier looks into the mirror he’s reminded of the responsibility he carries. “If you talk too much this soldier may die,” is painted onto the mirrors. A soldier sees his own face and is reminded of the gravity revealing a secret has. “When I was diagnosed with yene machla, the first thing I decided was not to tell a soul besides for my immediate family,” says Liba, a powerhouse of a woman and leader of a large organization. “I knew that the push to get well and stay upbeat was contingent on my ability to upkeep my routine and not be viewed as an invalid. Baruch Hashem, I have never regretted my choice.”

SO IS THERE A SECRET TO THE SECRET-KEEPING RULE? Society at large has been trying to bring secrets to an end. By normalizing previously abnormal situations, we have made great strides in spilling the beans. Not too long ago, children with Down syndrome were hidden away. Now, they’re where they belong – proudly splashed on magazines and part of performances. They bring light to the world and happiness to many homes. The same goes for mental illness.

The psychiatric institutions of old have been demolished and laid to rest, but not without many victims. Nowadays, there are countless heroic individuals dealing with mental illness while keeping down a job, going to school and raising families.

SO THAT’S ONE SIDE OF SECRETS THAT HAVE GONE INTO THE OPEN. But we still have a way to go. Especially when it comes to shidduchim. The fear of becoming second-best or damaged goods is real and palpable for every girl and boy entering the parsha. As long as it’s a secret, they believe, the problem doesn’t exist. Every family has imperfections. That’s our way of growing and it’s Hashem Who created us all. So in reality, it is silly to hide your secrets. Many shidduchim have been ruined because of a revealed secret. But perhaps it’s better this way? Finding out secrets after the wedding is way, way worse. Ask anybody who has found out their spouse has kept something back from the shadchan. We all know a marriage or two that has sadly ended because of such a secret. Often, it’s not the problem that ruins a marriage, it’s the secret that does. At a certain point the secret might become irrelevant, but the fact that you kept the secret does not. The issue starts many years before shidduchim. Many teachers can attest to the numerous times a girl goes through school suffering unimaginable pain because her parents refuse to seek help or medicate the child in case it’ll ruin her shidduch. The parents have good intentions. They want to protect their child.

But then again, later in life, the child often doesn’t “turn out right” because they haven’t received the help they so desperately needed. “Despite the dangers, keeping secrets is part of human nature. Even when there is risk involved in keeping a secret, we believe there is greater risk in its disclosure,” says psychiatrist Peter Zafirides, an expert on the psychological effects of secrecy. “Simply, we decide that the disclosure of the secret will be more painful to us than keeping it hidden. So, it stays a secret.” And the dangers are real. Because our natural instinct is to disclose a secret, keeping it inside doesn’t allow our brain to function naturally. “Sleep may be disturbed, which could lead to emotional mood swings and a propensity to be illtempered or lose your cool,” says Dr. Allen Towfigh, a neurologist and sleep medicine specialist at New York Presbyterian Hospital/Cornell Medical Center. “You may also have difficulty with memory and learning. And the excess release of cortisol will cause a host of other ailments, including possible increase or loss of appetite and disruption of metabolism.” However, keeping secrets definitely has its merits. Manufacturers guard their secret recipes and ideas zealously, otherwise their goods are worthless. Employees who spill such secrets are regarded as criminals. At the other end of the political spectrum, Hillary Clinton’s entire presidential contest has been based on revealing secrets, covering up secrets and lying about the secrets! As Benjamin Franklin wisely said, “Three may keep a secret if two of them are dead.” How often is it worth it? The rule of thumb definitely is, if it’s another person’s secret you’re keeping, guard it with your life. The Chofetz Chaim writes about the huge aveira of revealing secrets. If it’s your own secret, think it through well, and weigh whether it’s worth the sacrifice. Usually it isn’t. Unless, it’s a surprise birthday party, of course.

THE INFORMATION YOU GIVE about a young man or woman may make or break a shidduch. The Chofetz Chaim said that, regarding a shidduch, people speak when they ought to be quiet and hold back when they ought to speak up. The yetzer hara, he explains, works both sides of the fence. In those who have important information that should be conveyed, he stirs up such a dread of speaking lashon hara that they hold their tongues. In those who are eager to pass on their fleeting negative impressions, he provides ample encouragement, warning them not to violate the Torah’s prohibition against “standing by as a fellow man’s blood is shed.” Each one of us may be called upon to give information for a shidduch. Therefore is incumbent upon us to be familiar with the actual halachos, so as not to be swayed by the wily yetzer hara who will convince us to speak when we should be silent, or to remain silent when we should speak. Following is a brief outline of the halachos of giving information for a shidduch. As with any area of halacha,

Negative information that should be relayed must comply with the five rules of toeles: 1. THINK THROUGH YOUR RESPONSE CAREFULLY. Is the information totally accurate? Do I know it firsthand, or is it completely or partially based on second-hand information? (Secondhand information is permitted to be shared only under specific circumstances; consult a rav for more details.) 2. DON’T EXAGGERATE. Don’t exaggerate or embellish, or you

118 / THE MONSEY VIEW / August 2, 2017 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

a rav should be consulted for further clarification, as needed.

For the caller: It is vital that the one who is seeking the information make it clear that it is for a shidduch. Otherwise, if the person giving the information speaks negatively about the subject, he or she would violate the laws of lashon hara, since they would not realize the information was being sought for a legitimate reason.

For those giving information: Before giving information, ask yourself: • How well do I really know this person? • What is the source of my information? • How do I feel about this person? • What will happen to this information once I disclose it? The answers to these questions will ensure your words are accurate and not exaggerated, and that only what should be said will actually be said.

run the risk of violating Motzi Shem Ra, the prohibition against slander. There’s a big difference between, “he’s quiet,” or “he’s very quiet.” 3. TRANSMIT THE INFORMATION WITH THE EXPRESS PURPOSE OF AIDING A SHIDDUCH. It’s crucial that your motivation for transmitting negative information be for the constructive purpose of aiding a shidduch. If you must give important negative information about a person you dislike, you must at least temporarily eradicate negative feelings from your heart so you can

transmit the information with the right intent. Otherwise, refer the inquirer to someone else who can convey the information with proper intent. 4. ENSURE THE INFORMATION IS TRANSMITTED IN THE LEAST HARMFUL WAY POSSIBLE. If the shidduch must be stopped, it may be enough to say, “I don’t think this shidduch is for you,” without revealing negative information about the boy or girl. If the caller persists, “Maybe I’ll want the shidduch anyway. I don’t want you to be the judge,” only then can you


pass on the information, provided that the other conditions are met. If, when giving just a part of the negative information, you know the person will not go ahead with the shidduch, you must stop at that point, because any further negative information is no longer for a constructive purpose.

don’t need it for purposes of a shidduch, you are not allowed to share it. If the information is so serious that the shidduch must be stopped, try to achieve that outcome by another means. THERE ARE THREE CATEGORIES OF INFORMATION:

5. WEIGH THE AMOUNT OF HARM YOUR INFORMATION IS LIABLE TO CAUSE AGAINST THE BENEFIT. If you aware that the person you are speaking to is indiscreet and will spread the information further to people who

1. OBJECTIVE, ESSENTIAL INFORMATION. If the rules of toeles are met, this information must be volunteered, even if you aren’t asked. This includes faults that are detrimental to establishing a Jewish home, such as seriously flawed

character traits, lack of religious commitment or definite health or emotional problems. 2. SUBJECTIVE, ESSENTIAL INFORMATION. Is he smart? Is she personable? Questions about middos, learning, intelligence, family and age, for example, can be answered truthfully, if asked. 3. UNIQUE, PERSONAL PREFERENCE. You may not lie, but you may withhold information that has no bearing on a happy marriage, for example if the boy or girl loves music.

THE MONSEY VIEW / 123


Laden with emotion nearly impossible to express with words, a simcha is an event that affects its maker on every level. From the physical to the spiritual, the baal simcha is invested in every way. And while much of the excitement may find expression through decor and heartily-given brachos, it is the music that encapsulates and elevates the unspoken feelings that flow through the simcha-maker’s veins. But how do you make sure that the both the environment is well-presented and that the music played will help you express the sentiments of the event? That’s where an event producer steps in, ready to make your simcha a hit without a hitch, from the music to beyond. It’s the event producer who hires the right people for every occasion, making the event less stressful for you. Whether you need a party planner, a caterer, a simple musician, a florist or a multi-piece orchestra, a good production manager takes the 1,000-piece puzzle (sometimes 10,000 pieces!) and completes it for you. What you get is a beautiful combination of the best of the best — catered specifically to your needs. The Monsey View interviewed event producer Mr. Gershy Moskowitz to get a better feel for what event producers do. What exactly does your job entail? Mr. Moskowits: At Gershy Moskowits Productions and Co., we check every item off the simcha planning list, whether for a chasunah or any other event. We arrange fantastic decorations and superb lighting, arrange the catering, book halls, set up sound systems, plan entertainment, work with the band and singers… What not?! Our office works very hard to make sure that every baal simcha feels confident and happy that their event will go smoothly and professionally. How long are you managing events? Mr. Moskowits: I’m in this business for 20 years. It started when I was 18 and my closest chaver got engaged. He was in Eretz Yisroel at that time, and right before the chasunah, his mother called him frantically saying she hadn’t given deposits in time and lost everything she had penciled in for. What could she do?

124 / THE MONSEY VIEW / August 2, 2017 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

My friend called me to see if I could help, and I got the ball rolling. It was a gorgeous chasunah. I saw I had a knack for arranging events and have been at it ever since. When I started my company, I was the only one doing this. At which point do you usually come into the picture? Mr. Moskowits: From the get-go. Sometimes, and pretty often actually, I’ll be the one to find the date and location that suits the simcha, and I’ll arrange everything. Basically, I offer a “one-call-that-does-it-all” type of service. How do you accommodate people with varying budgets? Mr. Moskowits: When I begin making plans I always start with a smaller budget in mind that can accommodate most families, then if I hear that the baal simcha wants more, I’ll add on and build up to suit the client’s additional desires. Do you always work with the same vendors? Mr. Moskowits: No, I work with everyone in the simcha industry because there are so many different choices! I help baalei simcha find the most appropriate vendors for their tastes and expectations. After doing this for almost 20 years, I can comfortably say that I know how to do my job well. In all, the job I do is also about making shidduchim — finding the right vendors for each simcha!

When it’s time for the big event, are you on site to make sure everything falls into place? Mr. Moskowits: Of course! I’m always present at the events I’ve arranged. The baal simcha sees a difference in action and feels less pressure if the event planner or arranger is there,

overseeing everything. Did you ever have a big flop, and if yes, how did you save face? Mr. Moskowits: There is always the potential for things to go unplanned, but Baruch Hashem, I am very organized and have a portfolio of all ex-

tra items that can be used as a backup if something goes wrong, like if an instrument breaks or the sound system isn’t cooperating. Thankfully, there was never a real flop that wasn’t salvageable and that left the baalei simcha unhappy. Facilitated by Sara Goldstein

IN CON VERSATION WITH THE MUSIC MAKERS The Monsey View is joined by Mr. Y. Orlansky, founder of Yedidim Choir and Mr. Avrumi Berko, One Man Band How do you accommodate when someone has an out-of-the-box or over-the-top request? Mr. Berko: If it’s doable and reasonable then I will follow through with what the baal simcha wants. Otherwise I will let him know before the simcha about anything that I have concerns about, and we’ll make adjustments so it works out for everyone involved. Mr. Orlansky: We’ve had some interesting requests… Apparently singing isn’t our only profession. One time, six elderly men needed four men on a Shabbos afternoon for a yahrtzeit seudah to round out a minyan, so they hired us. It wasn’t conventional, but what a brilliant solution! That was some davening... How do you prepare for an event? Mr. Orlansky: I’ll evaluate every job to send out the perfect combination of singers to make the event really special and to make sure that there is chemistry between them on stage. We spend time practicing, working with the singers to make sure that all the harmony lines are in sync. Working together with all this incredible talent brings out the strength in each of us individually. Mr. Berko: I basically have the songs down pat; it comes to me while I play. It’s more fluid and natural that way. If it’s a production job, then I prepare in advance. I would also say that although

126 / THE MONSEY VIEW / August 2, 2017 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

satisfying our customers is our number one goal, the less requests the customer has, the more it works to their advantage. Unless there is a specific song that’s special to the hero of the hour, just trust us! Mr. Orlansky: Agreed. Listen to what the professionals are telling you! How much in advance does a client book you for a simcha? Mr. Berko: Chasidishe clientele book around 6–8 months in advance, while Litvish and Sefardishe clients usually have shorter engagement periods, so they call around two months before the event.

By: Shevy Hollander

The largest diamond ever discovered was the Cullinan, weighing in at 3,106.75 carats (1.33 pounds!). It was cut into over 100 different diamonds. The three largest ones are on display as part of the crown jewels in the Tower of London.

Diamonds occur in a variety of color: steel gray, white, blue, yellow, orange, red, green, pink/purple, brown and black. The coloring in diamonds come from impurities or structural defects; the purest diamonds are transparent and colorless. The diamond is April’s birthstone, the most expensive one! Precious, but not delicate: The diamond is the very hardest natural substance. Nothing can scratch a diamond except for another diamond. Although the United States accounts for less than one percent of the world’s diamond production, it has the largest diamond market, buying more than half of the world’s total gem-quality diamonds.

The value of a diamond is determined by the four C’s:

CUT The cut refers not to the shape of a diamond, but the precise artistry and workmanship that are required to fashion a diamond so it delivers the most sparkle and light.

COLOR The evaluation of most diamonds is based not on color, but an absence thereof. A perfect diamond has no hue, and as the degree of colorlessness goes down, the value decreases with it.

CLARITY While no diamond is perfectly pure, the less inclusions (internal flaws) and blemishes (external flaws) it has, the higher its value.

CARAT WEIGHT This is the measurement of how much a diamond weighs. A bigger diamond will obviously have greater value than a smaller one.

Lab-created diamonds may be synthetic in that they are man-made in lab conditions that simulate earth’s natural environment, but they are identical to natural diamonds, to the eye, and also chemically and atomically. Even the biggest diamonds experts cannot tell them apart. Unfortunately, their prices are also quite similar to earth-mined diamonds… THINK DIAMONDS ARE LIMITED TO JEWELRY?

This Mercedes-Benz is covered in Swarovski crystals, reportedly a replica of a diamond-covered automobile owned by Saudi Arabian Prince Al Waleed, which may or may not be in existence.

For some kids, it’s not enough to be born with silver in their mouth, they get diamonds (and white gold!). This diamond pacifier, fit for a newborn prince, is on sale at Knees N Toes for $17,000. Its makers, though, do not recommend actual use.

Days to Serenity

HI EVERYBODY! Second half officially started and with it comes the new resolve of trying to relax. I’m not so talented in this area as some project or another keeps popping up every day, baruch Hashem. But it’s still on my bucket list! What’s on your bucket list? If it’s swimming with the dolphins, I’ll definitely join you. Let’s first organize our pocketbooks so we can find some cash to fund the trip.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 3: PHOTOS CONTINUED If you got adventurous yesterday and scattered all your photos on the dining room table, have no fear. We’ll make your table ready for Shabbos so it doesn’t look like a photo store gone awry. If you didn’t have a chance to get boxes, use shoe boxes. The 5-by-7” disposable pans also work wonders for short term. Stack photos neatly and in order. If the photos do not have dates, date them in the back. You’ll thank me down the road. Take half an hour for this. The rest you’ll do another time at your leisure. FRIDAY, AUGUST 4: CANS, PASTA, ETC.. I really, really recommend getting something to organize your cans in. I say it for everything, but some things need it more. Unless you don’t mind buying four cans of tomato or four cans of mushrooms every week ‘cause you’re not sure you have any left, only to come home and see that the ones you bought are precisely the ones you have. Or the week you are convinced you have six cans of tomato sauce at home ready for your meatballs only to come home and have to borrow one from your neighbor because you had six cans of baby corn and eight cans of crushed pineapple instead. So now organize them as best as you can in neat rows. Write a list of what you have and stick it on the inside of the cabinet door. Each time you use a can, cross it off the list. Works really well. Don’t overbuy! Although cans last a long time, the extras clutter the cabinets for no worthwhile reason.

SUNDAY, AUGUST 6: POCKETBOOKS I love this job! Always goodies in here! (You hope!) My friends know if we’re sitting in a car for a long drive, their pocketbooks will be scrutinized and organized, not necessarily in that order. Some people are happy about it; others not as much. ;) They hold onto their bags for dear life when they see me. Pocketbooks are not shopping bags, not diaper bags and not garbage bags. Just so you’re clear on that: a pocketbook should rather be on the smaller size. A wallet, siddur, small brush and mirror. Tissues, travel pack of wipes. Some bags vary. I always have a notebook and pen on hand as well as my trusty measuring tape. Receipts from last year’s Pesach order does not require to be held hostage in your bag. The ones you do need keep neatly folded. Only the ones you need! So glad you have credit cards. 50? The ones that you don’t use, out. Even happier for you that you have tons of pennies ‘n nickels ‘n dimes ‘n quarters in


August 2, 2017 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 141 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


there. You’re not a bank. Although of course we wish we were. Shake the bag out and put all your change in the pushke. Keep some quarters in a small pocket. If you find me around town (or see me with the dolphins) I’ll gladly organize your pocketbook free of charge. I’ll just help myself to all the change as payment.

days #21 through #25 Thursday, August 3 / Photos Continued Friday, August 4 / Cans, Pasta, etc. Sunday, August 6 / Pocketbooks Monday, August 7 / Children’s Books Wednesday, August 8 / Seforim Shelves

MONDAY, AUGUST 7: CHILDREN’S BOOKS TRACK YOUR WEEKLY PROGRESS AND WIN!

Okay, so the way I see it with children’s books: It’s always really tough to get rid of any of them. That’s why you have a shed. Seriously, though, it’s better to keep the ones that your kids graduated in the shed than sitting on your shelves collecting those little white particles I call dust. I also feel that as with toys, the kids gets overwhelmed with a large selection. The more book choices they have, the less they actually want to read. A while back one of my clients didn’t have space for extra shelves. I put the books in an extra drawer and it looked so neat. Whatever fits in there, stays. The rest goes. TUESDAY, AUGUST 8: SEFORIM SHELVES

Prize will be drawn weekly! E: comments@themonseyview.com | F: 845-600-8483 This week’s lucky winner is:

Let’s start with the top half today. My rule: If it doesn’t fit, get it out. That simple. Clean and dust the shelves, put the seforim/ books back neatly. Don’t stack.

27 YEAR OLD GIRL FINDS HER BASHERT

I

t was like riding a roller-coaster. Within seconds, your orientation changes from up to down and then back up and down again. At 27, I had been seeking a shidduch for a very long time. And so many times, I had thought, “This is it! He is the one!!” and then… it fell apart. Why couldn’t I find my bashert? I had been to all the shadchanim and decided to turn to the ultimate Shadchan- Hashem! I signed up for membership with Tehillim Kollel, who I knew employed sincere and dedicated men to daven for the klal, at one of their daily locations, where Tehillim Kollel representatives daven in an established place each and every day: Amuka, the Kever of Yonasan ben Uziel, renowned for being a holy site for bringing about shidduchim. I then continued my hishtadlus, trying to seek out new shadchanim that I had not yet contacted. I am ecstatic to share that my personal roller coaster ride with Shidduchim is over. A few months after signing up, I became engaged to my wonderful chassan! The ultimate Shadchan came through for me! And thankfully, the roller coaster ride is over.

Tu B'Av is aLmost here! Grab the opportunity to find the perfect zivug for yourself, a family member or friend. Tehillim Kollel’s special Makom Kavua at Amuka increases the deep spirituality of this day, place and time.

KLEIN’S CARAMEL CONES: GOOD OL’ ICE CREAM IS NEW AGAIN! It’s the oldest, most classic of things. It’s the newest, most exciting of things.

caramel fudge. Are you salivating yet? You’ve never anything like it!

Sounds like a paradox? Well, as with all products introduced by the kings of kosher ice cream, even the classics keep being reinvented and reintroduced with a delicious twist, a fun addition with a redesigned study in yumminess. Today we introduce to you the totally classic - yet totally new; ordinary - yet reinvented, ice cream cone. While there is nothing as basic, yummy and summer-like as a good ol’ ice cream cone, the new Klein’s Caramel Cones are simply beyond regular. Just consider the makeup of this cone: A delicious, crispy sugar cone lined with authentic milk chocolate, filled with Klein’s caramel ice cream and topped with decadent

We say that with confidence, as nothing else can compare to this piece of Klein’s carameliciousness! Once you taste this, you too will agree that it is a word! Throughout the summer of 2017 and throughout the rich sixdecade creamy history of Klein’s, we are constantly being told that every new product is a “must try”. And indeed, this outstanding cone is yet another must-try produced by Klein’s. After all, a company that keeps churning out one must-try product after another, summer after summer, must be doing something right!

E PI S ODE # 4

I’M DODGING THE WAVES at the separate beach, but I don’t feel relaxed. My raging thoughts confound and disturb me, robbing me of any sensation of calm. This is great, I think as I catch another wave, but it will end, and then it’s back to the grind. Back to challenge, back to frustrations. I push past the waves and recline on the shore, just where sea meets land. The water rises and covers me like a warm blanket, then recedes into the huge sea. Rise and fall, just like

life. Is vacation the rise and life a constant fall? That’s a depressing thought. Am I taking vacation because it’s the real pleasure in life? Is it the goal that makes all of life’s turmoil worthwhile? No, no and no. I burrow my legs deep into the sand. The answer comes instantly, like it just fell from the

146 / THE MONSEY VIEW / August 2, 2017 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

clear blue sky. I must love my life. That’s the goal. Then vacation can recharge me — toward that goal. If I don’t love my life, vacation and the return to normal life will only be painful. It will just accentuate how hard I find my life and how I wish I could always be lounging at the beach. I thump at the wet sand, vigorously furrowing deep holes before the water comes and washes it all away. I’m almost angry. Can’t I even enjoy vacation? I stare up at the sky, willing it to provide me with more answers. The key is loving life. But how? When life is full of challenge, how can I love it? I charge back into the sea, letting the question slowly settle inside me. I jump with each wave, considering this thought, rejecting that one. Fortunately, clarity is so accessible in this clean, natural backdrop. I realize that it’s a two-pronged battle: change and embrace. I will have to make changes where things aren’t working. If I’m


overburdened, I’ll find a way to minimize my workload or get more help. I’ll work on solving certain issues for once, instead of resisting them and failing each time. And as for the rest, I will modify my outlook — and embrace it. I close my eyes. Changing perspective is not an easy task. It’s the way I look at children, at burdens, at responsibilities. Those can be drudgery or a delightful challenge. I can throw up my hands when it gets hard, or I can believe in myself and charge those same burdens with positivity and optimism. But enough thinking. I clear my mind and enjoy the calming waves a little bit more. I take deep breaths while lying on my back on the shore. Soon, it’s time to pack up and go home. I comfort myself: There will always be more ice cream — or vacation, or swimming, or whatever I’ll call it. Life resumes its frenetic pace. But I’ve made a promise, and one evening, my husband and I take an honest look at my life and my perspectives. And then we brainstorm about how I can best fill my vacation needs. We decide that I would take a periodical day off. Once a month, it’s mine to spend as I please. No house chores, no childcare — everything will be outsourced. It would take some planning, but it’s doable. I’d have to arrange with a babysitter a day earlier, have my husband buy some

food (or open a can of tuna!) and think of a schedule for my coveted vacation day. It could include buying a good breakfast, enjoying a morning walk, reading a good book, taking a trip to the boardwalk, or spending time with a friend. I firmly believe that more money doesn’t always equal “more.” Three-day getaways have lost their appeal for me — at this point anyway — and I’m satisfied with my smallscale plan for a self-care day. When I send off the kids on my first vacation day, the feeling of freedom is incredible. There is always something beckoning in real life, and now — nothing. I’ve been through many of such dreamy vacation days by now, and I reflect on the results: Sometimes, the turnabout is profound, and I feel refreshed and refilled with purpose. At other times, the day off doesn’t do much for me. I discovered that it all depends on how I begin my day. Closing my eyes at the start of my vacation day and internalizing that I’m going to fill up does wonders. It’s not which book or what food I enjoyed that day, not what I did or didn’t do. It’s all in the mind, in the thought that I’m taking time for myself to reflect and recharge. For life. Because ultimately, life lived with inspiration and purpose is the goal of it all. It’s the best part.

By Ann Zeilingold

Real Estate Mazel Tov! It’s a House I ALWAYS LIKEN THE PURCHASE of a home to a shidduch. The buyer needs to find the right house that they can turn into a home — or if the buyer is an investor — the right house that can attain the returns required to make it a good investment. The realtor plays the role of shadchan. There needs to be a “shidduch” between the buyer and the mortgage professional and the real estate attorney, too. Buying a home is so personal and individual. About 15 years ago, I received a call late at night. It was a conference call with a realtor and a buyer. The buyer related that he had closed on a home that morning. As they drove home from the closing, the they saw a sign for an “Open House” for a house around the corner from their new home. They were curious as to what was for sale in their new neighborhood and they stopped to see the house. And they fell in love. They no longer wanted to live in the home that they had just purchased. They called their mortgage broker who said that he couldn’t help them buy another house when they had just closed on a home that day. To put this in perspective, the new house had a pond in the backyard. The grounds were woodsy and rustic. The house had three small bedrooms but the floor plan was all open with a rustic log cabin look and heavy wooden beams and the whole back was made of sliding doors. The home that they had just closed on was a bit larger with gleaming cherry wood cabinets and granite countertops. The two houses couldn’t be more different. I was able to help them with the loan and they still live in

A house truly is a shidduch.

the house, but the point of this story is that a house truly is a shidduch and while some people would hate that rustic look and the small bedrooms wouldn’t appeal to them at all, this family fell in love with this house. The other home was more typical, and it easily sold to another family quickly. Their original realtor hadn’t even shown them the house that they eventually bought and settled in. She didn’t read them right and didn’t realize that they were not the typical buyer and therefore they hadn’t known that such a home was even available. A realtor needs to understand the needs of the client and to be able to connect them to the right home and the right professionals to facilitate the whole process. It’s no fun to look at so many homes, week after week, and none of them are the right fit, or to find the right house but the mortgage professional doesn’t gain the buyers’ trust and the lawyer either isn’t reachable or able to connect to the buyer so the parties end up not being in sync with each other. Buying a house, is most likely the single largest purchase a family will make in their lifetime, so the decision and the experience is a major, major event. Therefore finding the right shadchan, and being meshadech with the right professionals can make all the difference.

21ST ANNUAL ASIFA TO BENEFIT KUPATH EZRAH At this time of the year as we mourn the destruction of the Bais Hamikdash and the loss of our holy land Eretz Yisroel, we are also reminded of our long and bitter exile. We grieve over our blood soaked past. We memorialize the famous cities throughout the Diaspora that were famed for its greatness. Vilna, Cracow, Warsaw, Lublin, Pressburg just to mention a few. We picture the holy tzadikim and great Talmidei Chachamim as they davened in the magnificent shuls, and learned Torah in the great Batei Midrashim and Yeshivas. They are all gone, their voices snuffed out, their places of Torah learning and prayer destroyed. Hashem with His infinite mercy has not forsaken us. He brought us to these shores and with great Siyata Dishmaya we were able to rebuild wonderful Torah communities here in the United States. One of the greatest and largest Torah communities is Monsey and its environs. To date there is over 13,000 religious Jewish families living in Monsey. The voices of Torah learning are heard in hundreds of Batei Midrashim, Kolelim, Yeshivas, and Talmud Torahs throughout this great city. It is also famed for its many tzedaka and chesed instituitions .One of the crown jewels of these tzedaka institutions is Kupath Ezrah of Rockland County which serves as the Kupas Aniyim of the city for the past 57 years. The past Sunday, July 23rd The Kupah celebrated its 21st Asifa at the Atrium Plaza. The guest speaker was Harav Ahron David Dunner Shlita, Dayan of the London Bais Din. Rabbi Feivel Mashinsky president of Kupath Ezrah opened the event with a tribute to all those that helped make this Kupah such a renowned institution. As a sign of Hakaros Hatov to all of its most generous donors, the Kupah minted commemorative coins and had them blessed by Gedolei Hatorah and Admorim in Eretz Yisroel and here in the US. Hearing about the wonderful works of this Tzedaka, these Gedolim where more than eager to take part in this endeavor. These coins serve as a Shmira, a protection for one’s household coupled with the blessing for everything good. Dayan Donner Shlit’a, the guest speaker made a special two day trip from London to speak for Kupath Ezrah on this occasion. The Dayan pointed out that there are no guarantees in life, except what our Torah and Chachameinu Z’l promised us. He quoted many Midrashim and Gemaras that spell out the rewards of those that support such a Tzedaka like Kupath Ezrah, that distributes cash stipends in such an honorable and discreet manner. The Rav quoted a Targum Yonason and Yerushalmi that stated that since 4/5s of the Jews in Egypt died during the plague of darkness, their families were adopted by those that left Egypt. The Yerushalmi bestows honor and praise on these wonderful Jews that adopted four families each. The Dayan suggested to the assembled that they should do so as well. Everyone who can should adopt at least one family, or maybe as many as four families in order to bring light warmth and happiness into the homes of the less fortunate members of the community. He concluded with the promise of the Navie that Tzion and Yerushalayim will be rebuilt with the merit of Tzedaka, Amen For more information about the Blessed Coins please call the office at 845-426-6504 or Rabbi Feivel Mashinsky at 917-617-0385.
