5 years old and I got sick four months ago. I don't like the doctors, and the days I have to be in the hospital because of my treatments. The needles really hurt. At least when I'm not in the hospital, I get to go to my special Kapayim class. There I have friends, other kids who also go to the hospital like me. Our Morahs teach us aleph-beis, parsha, and numbers. We even had a mock wedding and I was the kallah! My sisters and brothers only get to go to the Kapayim cabin once a week, but I get to go there a lot more! I wish I don't have to sleep in the hospital ever again, so I can go to school every single day. Will you daven for me?

A NUTRITIOUS PROGRAM In reference to last week’s letter regarding school lunches, I’d like to state my viewpoint as a grandmother with grandchildren attending various heimishe mosdos. Contrary to the way school lunches were described, I’m amazed at the delicious and nutritious foods available at every meal. The variety of food is funded by the grace of various programs, and I want to express my appreciation to the government for sponsoring the programs and to the mosdos who are conscientiously implementing the programs and encouraging their students to eat healthily. Like my grandmother used to say after she arrived to America and witnessed the opportunity available here: G-d Bless America. The Mendlovic Family

As a mother of a first-grader, I’d like to reply to the letter last week criticizing school lunches. I am actually really impressed with the wellrounded and nutritious menus that make up my daughter’s lunches every day. It is also amazing to see how the girls are taught all about proper nutrition and food groups and are empowered with information to choose the right foods. A Grateful Mother of a Monsey Mosed

pool, homework, doctors’ appointments and being present for my children, there is so much to juggle. I feel guilty every time my husband helps out with cleaning, cooking or laundry since this was not what I saw at home, and I need a constant reminder that, yes, there will always be the traditional roles, but in this day and age when women help out with parnasah, it only makes sense that the workload at home is shared too. Thank you for bringing awareness to the subject. Anonymous

BRINGING LIGHT TO AN IMPORTANT MATTER Thank you for such a wonderful weekly; your paper is amazing! I read it every week from cover to cover! I’d like to remind the community of a very important concept: the importance of wearing a reflector whenever you’re walking on the street when it’s dark. As a driver, I can testify it is impossible to see you at night, and I constantly have to make shortstops right in front of pedestrians. I can’t think of the tragedies that were avoided by just an inch… I’d like to ask you, please do it for yourself, do it for me and do it for the entire community: Wear a reflector; it will save your life! Thank you! A Driver Concerned About Safety

RE: CREATING PROBLEMS WHEN THERE ARE NONE (ISSUE #127) I applaud the therapist who spoke out in Issue #127, encouraging us to “let kids be kids.” The pressure that is put onto our children these days is enormous. I have worked in the public elementary schools, and unfortunately, I have to agree that this seems to be a unique problem that we have created in our own community. In the outside world, teachers are usually trained to deal with all types of children (with indiscriminate love and patience), and all of these therapies that are so commonplace here are reserved for the kids who really need them. Hopefully teachers and parents will take note and stop having unreasonable expectations of the children in their lives. A.M.

DO IT WITH ALL YOUR HEART First of all, I love when you present simple features with such clear instructions. It never occured to me to use a parchment paper on top of the dough when rolling it out for cookies. The other tips in the Food and Family column on Chanukah baking were phenomenal as well. My kids were able to create the cookies all on their own and a great time was had by all. Thank you! I also wanted to thank you for providing a forum where important topics can be addressed. Recently, I was in need of a volunteer’s service, and I want to point out a very important matter to all the wonderful people who give of their time and volunteer for the klal. Your work is so greatly appreciated. However, if you feel burned out, please take a break from volunteering. I’m trying very hard to be dan l’kaf zechus a woman who was rude to me when I did nothing wrong. Perhaps the person she dealt with before me was difficult and she was stressed out, but that by no means justifies hurting me so deeply and accusing me of wrongdoing. I understand the difficulties of volunteering: I dedicate my entire morning at least once a week to the klal. It could be frustrating, but either do it with a smile, or not at all. Please keep your practical ideas coming. Name Withheld

THE INSIDE NUTRITION BY TANYA:

EDITION CHAPTER 19

By: Basya Kovacs

SO...THE BIG QUESTION: Did I have a doughnut this Chanukah? I was asked this question approximately 30 times this week (and I am assuming there were more clients who wanted to ask, but were too polite), and the answer was absolutely! My personal feeling is that if it is such a big deal to use oil on Chanukah, it must mean that the rest of the year, we should be staying away from fried food! So I literally try not to eat anything fried the entire year, and I don’t fry anything for my family either. (That’s not to say that my children don’t fry food for themselves. I came home to a platter of fried beef egg rolls last night that my 12-year-old daughter created from scratch!) So once a year, I fry doughnuts for my kids, toss them with powdered sugar and we all have some. My kids have great memories of this and think my doughnuts are the world’s best doughnuts! Just don’t tell them the dough is store-bought pizza dough. There are some things they just don’t need to know. Many of my clients were surprised that I had a doughnut. But with a proper understanding of our dieting philosophy, eating a doughnut on Chanukah makes perfect sense. Nutrition by Tanya is famous for “allowing” pizza and sushi while on the diet. (I put the word “allowing” in quotes because I always tell my clients that they are allowed to do whatever they want! Everything they eat every single day is a choice — they don’t need my permission.) If they want my recommendation, I will tell them that yes, they are allowed pizza. And sushi. And a doughnut on Chanukah. And cheesecake on Shavuos. And treats at night if needed, etc. What is the mindset behind this philosophy? Did pizza and doughnuts suddenly become dietetic? Are they suddenly low-calorie foods? Obviously not. So why are we allowing (or recommending) that our clients occasionally partake in these favorites? We have found that dieters don’t do

46 / THE MONSEY VIEW / December 27, 2017 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

well when they feel deprived. Just like there is only so long someone can go carbfree or gluten-free without eventually giving up on their diet, it is unrealistic to ask someone never to eat pizza again. We really and truly believe that if this is going to be our clients’ new lifestyle, then it needs to be sustainable. We don’t believe in doing anything for short-term results. How many people have sworn off carbs only to be derailed by the crust of their child’s pizza? How many people have sworn to “eat clean,” which they then do until the next week, month or until the next simcha or yom tov? This is why we incorporate certain “must haves” into the program. If you are going to eat it anyway, do so in a controlled, measured way, as part of your plan. This way there is no guilt, no derailing and no need to throw the whole diet in the trash and gain all the weight back. And it works. As I write this article, Chanukah is drawing to a close, and most of my regular weekly clients have weighed in. The results are astounding. I can count on one hand how many people gained more than a pound over Chanukah, and in fact, most of my clients have lost weight. And interestingly, many of my clients reported back to me that just knowing that they could have the doughnut was enough. They didn’t actually even eat the doughnut, because they found that they didn’t need it. They just needed to know that they could have it if they wanted to. That wasn’t enough for me, but that’s okay! It’s allowed on my plan! Basya Kovacs is a nutrition counselor at Nutrition by Tanya and is the manager of the Monsey, Monroe, and Staten Island locations. Nutrition by Tanya offers personalized and practical weight management and nutrition counseling for men, women and children.

Parshas

Vayechi

By: Malka Schneps

MALKY* SAT BY LITTLE MOISHY’S CRIB in the hospital, davening for a yeshuah. At just five weeks of age, Moishy had suffered a major seizure and stopped breathing. Hatzolah came and revived him, but it happened again. And again. In the ambulance, the EMTs administered CPR continually all the way to the emergency room. Day after day, Malky sat by her son’s crib. Although she had just become a mother for the first time, she stood up and fought for her baby. For example, she demanded that the doctor sign off on an apnea monitor for when her son would be discharged. The monitor would ring an alarm if little Moishy ever stopped breathing again, allowing Malky to administer infant CPR while waiting for Hatzolah — she had learned the basics of infant CPR since that fateful day. The doctor did not want to sign off on the apnea monitor, telling Malky that it would be better for the baby to “pass on” after a few moments of not breathing rather than to suffer a long, drawn-out illness. “Think about what’s better for the baby,” the doctor said. “Don’t you want to minimize his suffering?” Young Malky stood firm in her resolve and told the doctor, “It is not my place to decide how or when it is better for this child to die — that is G-d’s job. My job is to do what is best for this baby moment by moment, and right now it is better for him to live!” Needless to say, Malky got the monitor. Malky stood equally firm when a well-intentioned visitor suggested she place the baby in an institution. She respectfully responded, “Hashem gave this baby to me, and I will care for him myself.” Malky did bring Moishy home and continued to fight for his life — but she knew that the real fight was taking place in Shamayim. Malky had noticed that the doctor had only said what disease he suspected the boy to have — he had not made an official diagnosis. As long as the doctor, who acts as Hashem’s shaliach, does not make an official diagnosis, thought Malky, there is more hope. If he had made an official pronouncement, then we would need a true nes. Malky looked out the window and watched as healthy children rode past on bicycles and scooters. That will be my son, she thought determinedly. Perhaps I

should go to Eretz Yisroel and daven by the Kosel. Ah, to stand in the Presence of the Shechinah and pour her heart out. But how could she leave the country when her baby needed to be at the hospital three days a week? Malky gave the matter more thought, and then she remembered learning once that kivrei tzaddikim have the kedusha of Eretz Yisroel. So one day, Malky arranged to travel to the tziyun of a tzaddik buried in New York State. She poured her heart out, crying copious tears and begging the tzaddik to intervene in Shamayim on her son’s behalf. Malky returned home from the tziyun, and within two hours she received a phone call from the son of the Skulener Rebbe, shlit”a, who had been notified six weeks earlier about the baby’s illness. “I have a message from my father, the Rebbe: The child will be fine.” Baruch Hashem, the illness completely disappeared; Moishy is now completely healthy and learning in a top yeshivah, ka”h. What is it about tzaddikim that enables them to bring the light of the Shechinah even into chutz l’aretz? This week’s parsha begins, “Vayechi Yaakov b’eretz Mitzrayim… — And Yaakov lived in the land of Mitzrayim” (Bereishis 47:28). The Sfas Emes quotes the Chiddushei HaRim that the Torah is not telling us that Yaakov dwelled in Mitzrayim (“vayeishev Yaakov”), but rather that Yaakov lived there (“vayechi Yaakov”). Yaakov remained connected to the Source of life even in decadent Egypt, unlike resha’im (l’havdil) who Chazal say are considered as dead even when alive. Yaakov lived because he was firmly attached to emes. B’emes, Hashem is equally in chutz l’aretz as in Eretz Yisroel, and equally in galus as in geulah — but Hashem is more revealed in the place of Eretz Yisroel and in times of geulah. It is therefore easier for most people to perceive Hashem in Eretz Yisroel. But the Sfas Emes explains that a tzaddik like Yaakov understands that galus merely hides Hashem more than Hashem is hidden in geulah, but Hashem is equally there. May we attach ourselves to emes and have emunah that Hashem is with us wherever we go and connect ourselves to the true Source of life wherever we may be.

56 / THE MONSEY VIEW


It was three years ago that Rabbi Zev Freundlich, dean of Mesivta Shaarei Arazim, found himself wondering why there were few, if any, extracurricular activities available to elementary-school-aged boys in the Monsey area. Having witnessed his own yeshivah’s success motivating boys in the beis medrash by giving them the opportunity to cultivate their outside talents and abilities, Rabbi Freundlich decided that the time had come for an after-school program that would give boys a chance to stretch their creative wings, an effort that he knew would boost participants’ personal pride and simchas hachaim. Shaarei Arazim itself has been known for nearly 20 years as a yeshivah where enthusiasm for learning and a commitment to excellence in other areas go hand in hand. Ninth graders build their own desks and use them throughout high school, and the mesivta’s famed marching band and Chinese acrobatic troupe have performed at numerous events throughout the New York area and beyond. Other unique electives have included a rowing team, boat building and a cooking class that prepares the dinners served nightly in the yeshivah. Creating a program of age-appropriate classes that would click with younger boys was a continuation of the same idea, one that Rabbi Freundlich approached with his trademark enthusiasm. In its first year, the after-school program started small with a one-hour Tuesday night music program on the yeshivah’s campus that gave boys ages nine through twelve the ability to learn to play the keyboard, saxophone, trumpet, flute, clarinet, drums, guitar and violin. Rabbi Freundlich insisted on hiring professional teachers, including well-known drummer Mr. Shmuel Klaver and veteran music teachers Rabbi Avraham Kahn and Mr. Mendel Deutsch, with several Shaarei Arazim students working as assistants to keep things running smoothly. “We had 50 boys that first year,” Rabbi Freundlich told The Monsey View. “We had kids from just about every school in Monsey, from Darchei Noam and Yeshiva of Spring Valley to Satmar and Pupa and every yeshivah in between.” From the start, Rabbi Freundlich made it clear that the afterschool program was intended for boys who were looking to discover, develop and expand their natural abilities in a positive, wholesome environment. As the menahel, Rabbi Freundlich is on hand at all times to ensure the safety and security of all students in the program, which has a strict no-electronics rule to maintain a high level of ruchniyus. Buoyed by the success of its debut, the program grew in its second year, with 80 boys enjoying the music classes as well as two new additions: a choir and a highly popular gymnastics class taught by former Olympics gymnastics coach Mr. Frank Adams. It was clear that the boys were gaining tremendously, and raising the bar a little higher, Rabbi Freundlich announced a full-scale end-of-year per-

THE MONSEY VIEW / 57


formance as a chance to show friends and family just how much participants had accomplished. More than 400 people enjoyed the red-carpet event that included an impressive, dramatic production, a 23-man acrobatic troupe and a choir accompanied by an orchestra comprised of almost two dozen pieces. Demand for Shaarei Arazim’s after-school program skyrocketed for the 2017–2018 school year. Classes were added on Sunday afternoons and Thursday nights, in addition to the Tuesday night sessions, and the ten-week program also incorporated a new intermediate level for the music and gymnastic classes, giving participants the opportunity to further hone their skills. By the time the program opened this fall, there were 160 boys registered for an assortment of classes, which also included some new offerings. “We have basketball coached by Mr. Mike Vergis, a professional coach at a local high school; woodworking; and a model airplane class that is part of New York State’s STEM curriculum, which focuses on technology and engineering,” noted Rabbi Freundlich. “In addition to the choir — led by Rabbi Moshe Serebrowski, who has produced several children’s albums — we also have professional voice lessons and a recording studio, and we will be producing a CD at the end of every semester.” Word of the after-school program has spread primarily by word of mouth until now, and even Rabbi Freundlich admits to being wowed by its steadily increasing numbers. The after-school program will have even more new electives offered for the winter semester, which starts on January 13, with a new Motzei Shabbos program exclusively for thirteen- and fourteen-year-olds. “We are going to have a culinary arts class where the boys will learn to make sushi, carve fruit and decorate cakes,” said Rabbi Freundlich. “There will also be a martial arts class; a photography class that will address light, focus and exposure skills; and a simcha shtick class with Israel Gourion, one of the legendary Twins from France, who will teach juggling, unicycling and balance.” Other new electives for the winter session, which will run through March 22, are art classes, which will teach sketching, painting and sculpture, and a chess class, which in addition to the basics of the game, will focus on concentration skills and strategic and logical thinking. Rabbi Freundlich expects to have approximately 300 boys enrolled in the winter session, and the after-school program will continue after Pesach, giving any boys who participated this year the chance to take part in another end-of-year performance. “What are we planning for this year?” asked Rabbi Freundlich. “Honestly, I don’t know yet. But it will be something big.” Looking ahead to the future, Rabbi Freundlich is already tossing around ideas for year four of the after-school program. Car mechanics and drama are both being considered, and Rabbi Freundlich hopes to be able to expand the program to a full six nights a week. “Our boys need creative outlets,” said Rabbi Freundlich. “I have seen so many boys benefit from extracurricular activities on many levels, and it is very rewarding to see how much positive feedback we have gotten from the community.” The Shaarei Arazim after-school program is held at the school’s campus at 201 Route 306 in the center of Monsey.

Saving a Life When a Moment of Prayer is a Lifetime of Prayer Based on a lecture by Rabbi Fischel Schachter

A

A family was once on vacation in Teveria. One day, the mother and her two daughters made their way down to the Kineret for a swim while the father traveled to the gravesite of R’ Meir Baal HaNes. Swimming in the water, the girls enjoyed themselves, but soon the older daughter began drifting off a bit too far, and being unable to swim very well, she started to drown. It was then that the mother, frantic and herself also incapable of swimming, began hearing her daughter yell for help. Running to the highway, the mother began flagging down oncoming cars in a plea of desperation. After much effort, a luxurious car pulled over to the side, and out walked a welldressed man. “My child is drowning! Please, can you help?” the mother cried. Without hesitating, the man removed his coat and ran to the water, his wife screaming in the background, “Remember, you just had a heart attack!” The man jumped into the water, and after a short while, located the girl and brought her ashore. Letting out a sigh of relief, the mother looked at her daughter, grateful that she survived. But then she looked again and gasped. Lying before her was not her older daughter, but her younger daughter. Her younger daughter must have swum into the water to help her older sister. “I still have another daughter in the water!” the mother screamed to the man. Diving back in, the man looked around, asking, “Where is

62 / THE MONSEY VIEW / December 27, 2017 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

she?” “Over there,” cried the mother as she pointed to the water. Finally spotting the girl, he began dragging her to the shore. By now, a number of people had gathered around, nervously watching the man in the water. As the man continued holding the girl, he soon was met by a throng of bystanders, who were yelling, “Her head is still in the water! Lift her head out!” Realizing that the girl’s head was still submerged, he immediately lifted it up and placed her body on the sand. Within moments, a medic rushed over and started performing CPR, after which an ambulance crew arrived to take her pulse. But, unfortunately, they did not seem too optimistic. “Her head was in the water too long,” they said. She was rushed to the hospital, where the doctors, as well, returned with sullen faces. “There doesn’t seem to be too much hope.” While the family began fervently and anxiously praying for the girl’s recovery, she was sent for an MRI. After its completion, the doctor walked in with the results. “I don’t believe it,” he said, “but your daughter has regular brain activity; she is perfectly healthy.” Two days later, the girl was released from the hospital. “We never saw anything like this before,” the doctors said. “With her head underwater for quite a while, she couldn’t breathe and should have suffered major brain damage.” But, to everyone’s relief, she miraculously pulled through. A few days later, the family arranged a seudas hoda’ah, thanking Hashem for the miracle. Looking to invite the man who saved the two girls, they called the hospital thinking that perhaps he had called to find out how the girl was doing. And


sure enough, he had done so. Receiving his phone number, the family contacted him and invited him to the meal. He was an attorney from a non-observant kibbutz and had never experienced any close connection to Yiddishkeit his entire life. Yet after accepting the offer to join the family for the seudas hoda’ah, it seemed he had something on his mind that he wished to tell the family. After asking if he could share his story with the family, he went on to relate the following. “Just before this incident, I had been recovering from a heart attack. My wife and I were traveling up north for a vacation when we saw a woman frantically waving down cars in the street. My wife told me to keep on driving as it didn’t seem like there was any major problem, but I stopped to help. I used to be an Olympic swimmer, but after becoming ill, I hadn’t swum in years. Just last week, though, as part of my recovering therapy, I had decided to swim laps in the hotel I was staying at. At the time, my wife mentioned that it was dangerous for me to swim, but I replied that for some reason, I felt like I needed to do this. Now I know what I meant when I said that. If I hadn’t practiced my swimming then, I don’t think I would have been in shape to save your daughters. “So I jumped into the water. Coming back with your first daughter, you then told me that your other daughter was still in the water. I then dived back in again. But this time, as I neared the shore, it was brought to my attention that I had kept her head underwater. Unable to deal with what I had done, I came back crying to my wife. ‘I killed the girl!’ ‘What do you mean?’ asked my wife. ‘I didn’t pull her head out of the water! It’s all my fault that she’s now dead.’ I didn’t know what to do with myself. BY: ELAN PERCHIK

Editorial Director of TorahAnytime.com

“And so, some time after the incident, I decided to drive back next to the water and climb to a nearby mountaintop. When I finally made it up there, I began to talk to Hashem. ‘G-d, never in my life have I prayed. I grew up in a kibbutz and scoffed at the idea of prayer. This is the first time in my life that I am doing so. If this girl dies, I will never be able to live with myself again. Please consider as if I have prayed my whole life, and combine all those prayers to save this girl.’ After finishing my prayers, I proceeded to drive to the hospital and check up on the girl. “As soon as I arrived, I was updated with the news: Your daughter had woken up an hour earlier and was doing much better. She would survive and soon return to her full health. “The moment I heard that, I couldn’t believe my ears. She had awoken during the very few moments I silently stood in prayer on the mountaintop. At the exact time I had turned to Hashem in heartfelt prayer, she came to her senses.” Instead of giving up and despairing, this man took his broken heart and poured it out to Hashem in prayer. It was a prayer he had never uttered before in his life, and it wrought a miracle. Even at a moment we think all hope is lost, nothing is ever lost. Never are we to give up when trying circumstances confront us. Our words emanating from the heart directly reach Hashem and hold the potency of effectuating miracles.

Reb Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin Comes Home to Monsey THERE WERE CELEBRATIONS of epic proportions on December 20 as word spread that President Donald Trump had commuted Reb Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin’s sentence in the final moments of Chanukah, something described by many as a modernday miracle. Within hours of the White House announcement, Reb Sholom Mordechai was on his way out of the federal penitentiary in Otisville, back to the house that the Rubashkins had purchased on South Gate Drive in New Hempstead in 2015. By the time the couple arrived home at approximately 8:30 p.m., multiple blocks in the area had been shut down by police to accommodate the crowds of well-wishers who showed up to welcome Rubashkin home after he served eight years of a 27-year-sentence, a jail term that was pronounced excessive by more than 100 legal experts, as reported on VIN News. The Ramapo Police Department was on hand for crowd control, called in by Yossi Margareten of Chaverim of Rockland, whose team was also present at the scene. Dressed in his spodek and his yom tov finery, Rabbi Meshulem Nussen Spiegel of Beis Medrash Tefila L’Moshe on Brockton Road stood on the front porch of the couple’s home, welcoming them with the bracha Shehecheyanu. The crowds continued to celebrate outside as the Rubashkins went into their home where they were greeted by family members and close friends. After emerging from his home approximately 90 minutes later, Rubashkin addressed the singing and dancing crowd,

66 / THE MONSEY VIEW / December 27, 2017 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

speaking briefly of the unwavering emunah that sustained him during his long ordeal. After boarding a bus donated by Monsey Trails for the night, Rubashkin told photographer Shimon Gifter that he had no advance warning that he was about to be released. “I was eating seudas Zos Chanukah, that the Eibishter should make a nes, and the Eibishter made a nes,” said Rubashkin. “They told me to leave the cell, and they didn’t tell me anything. And they took me to a different building, and that was when they told me that the president had assigned clemency.”

Even guards at the prison were taken aback, according to Rubashkin. “The guards, some were very surprised,” said Rubashkin. “Others were very, very happy.” Rubashkin said that he has no doubt that the many tefillos said on his behalf and the achdus displayed by Klal Yisroel as they united in his support played a role in his release. “It shows you what ahavas Yisroel can do, that’s what I’m thinking” said Rubashkin. “With ahavas Yisroel, we all unite and we find that we are all brothers. We love each other. We ask Hashem, our Father, to help us, and He helps us.” After leaving Monsey, Rubashkin traveled to Boro Park to visit with his parents, Aron and Rivka Rubashkin. Thousands packed the streets to welcome Rubashkin home, with massive crowds showing their support at Lubavitch world headquarters at 770 Eastern Parkway, Rubashkin’s next stop, where singing and dancing continued well into the night. The Rubashkins completed their whirlwind trip with a pre-dawn visit to the Lubavitcher Rebbe’s ohel in Cambria Heights, where they davened and left kvitlach at the Rebbe’s tzion. A Friday morning meeting with the Skverer Rebbe was similarly well-attended, as hundreds of area residents turned out to greet Rubashkin who had an audience with the Rebbe. Because his sentence was commuted and he did not receive a presidential pardon, Rubashkin is still subject to an unspecified period of supervised release and will be obligated to make financial restitution as outlined by the court.

There are certain life-changing moments which get embedded in our memories to the point where we will always remember where we were and what we were doing at the time of the incident. Hearing the news of Reb Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin’s release will undoubtedly also remain a moment of “Where were you at that time?” When The Monsey View offered to me the opportunity to speak with a daughter of the Rubashkins, I didn’t hesitate for a moment. I was eager to take part in this simcha and share this special time with Monsey residents — a community who played a major role in this chapter.

70 / THE MONSEY VIEW


How long has your family been part of the Monsey community?

mother who knows her son is on the way home and only wants to know his ETA.

My mother and siblings moved to Monsey shortly after the sentencing, approximately six years ago. At first they lived with my newly married brother and sister-in-law, and then after about a year or two, relocated to their current residence on South Gate.

For those of us who weren’t so lucky to join in his welcoming, would you describe the scene outside your parents’ home that night?

Why Monsey, of all places? With my father being in Otisville, my mother wished to be as close as possible, and of all communities, Monsey seemed the best choice. The people here are also most similar to what the children were used to in Postville, making for an easier transition.

The news of your father’s release came as a great shock to all of us. Was it shocking for your family as well? Honestly, we lived every day with the true belief that our father can come home that very day. There were times when it seemed more probable than other times, but we believed it could happen at any given moment. But if you ask if we had any specific prior notice, the answer is no, we didn’t. Though we were hopeful that Hashem would send us this miracle, we had no idea when it would come, so the news took us by great surprise!

Was this constant belief shared by all members of your family? It was a belief we all lived with. My mother, in fact, always carried my father’s clothes in her car to have them ready at a moment’s notice. My grandmother, who people expected to be the most fragile, not only believed, but lived with the reality of his return every day. As many know, she owned and operated her restaurant on 13th Avenue in Boro Park for many years, a place where all were welcome and served warm meals regardless of their ability to pay. After my father’s incarceration, Tehillim became her daily companion, and she would complete Sefer Tehillim for him every day. With the news of his release, people wondered how to break the news to her for fear of shock at her advanced age. But my aunt said, “She knows it’ll happen; don’t fear.” She then proceeded to tell my grandmother, “Mamme, Sholom Mordechai kumt aheim.” My grandmother simply responded, “Gut, ven?” like a

Our plans had been to celebrate at 770, but we first wanted to pick up some essentials from home in Monsey. What we expected to be a mere few-minute stop turned out to be a major welcoming party of thousands of celebrators. The streets were crowded with people singing, dancing and celebrating this miracle, and I literally had to push my way through the throngs and announce my identity so as to be allowed in. Chaverim members took part not only in ensuring everyone’s safety, but also with their music and song. It was an incredible feeling seeing my father “home,” in this home, for the first time. The overwhelming feelings made my legs weak. My parents’ house, too, was so packed, you could barely move. The multitude of people who came to share in our celebration was heartwarming — there was an estimated crowd of around 3,000! When we boarded the bus heading to Crown Heights, they wouldn’t even let me off to retrieve anything due to the overcrowded streets. It was nearly impossible for family members to get through, which is why those who had to join met the bus at Ramapo High School.

Other than being your neighbors, how did the Monsey community play a role throughout all these years? The Monsey community has really played a central role in our lives. Monsey’s wonderful askanim went out

December 27, 2017 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 71 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


of their way to help, people traveled to Otisville to visit my father, and caring Monsey residents were there for my mother and siblings at all times. This community has really outdone itself. We will be forever grateful to the people of Monsey and their askanim, especially Rabbi Pinchos Lipschutz who spearheaded the efforts of the askanim in the legal world as well as well as in our day-to-day lives.

What’s the plan now? Will your family stay in Monsey now, as many of us wish? As of now, there are no longterm plans, either way. But the community sure made us feel welcome to stay!

Finally, is there any message you’d like to share with the Monsey community, specifically? There really are no words to describe the hospitality that this community has displayed. My family was looked after and cared for. From little signs of support like leaving a heartwarming note to a package left by the door for my mother and siblings, the community was always there for us, without us having to ask. The feeling of being thought of with concern and warmth made our family feel like we were part of the community, rather than just temporary dwellers. So my message would be one of my father’s: Keep on being the shamash. If there’s a fellow neighbor in need, don’t wait to be asked. Go and find the candle that needs to be lit. “I’ll have your kids for a bit.” “Can I send over soup tonight?” “I’ll arrange your Shabbos food this week.” We all have our times of need, times when we need one another. With simple gestures of chesed, when we’re in things together as one, we’ll merit “Barcheinu avinu kulanu k’echad” and the ultimate geulah.

Turn Your Leftover Challah Into

A Gourmet Melaveh Malka

Sitting around the table, sipping hot cocoa and playing a game of classic Rummikub… nothing beats winter melaveh malkas. Here are three fantastic recipes that will help you use the leftover challah that wasn’t finished on Shabbos. If you don’t have any leftover challah, just use white bread for the same delicious results. Here’s to spending fantastic quality time with your family.

THE MONSEY VIEW / 77


CHALLAH CROUTONS These are great over a standard Caesar salad. Toss some lettuce, cherry tomatoes and a bottle of prepared Caesar salad dressing together with these crispy, spicy croutons, and you’re good to go. To really take your salad over the top, add a half bottle grated parmesan cheese.

INGREDIENTS: Leftover challah, cut into thick slices 1 stick margarine, melted 2 cubes frozen garlic 1 tsp. salt 1½ tsp. parsley flakes

DIRECTIONS: 1. Mix margarine and spices in a small plate and brush over challah slices. 2. Cut challah into chunks and place in a single layer on a prepared baking sheet. 3. Bake on 350° for about 15 minutes, until croutons are browned. Cool before serving.

78 / THE MONSEY VIEW


SPINACH AND CHEESE STRATA A strata is made from cubes of bread — or in this case, challah — placed in a pan, topped with vegetables and cheese and soaked in an egg mixture. It’s comfort food at its best! The strata featured here is a spinach version, but feel free to sauté any vegetables of your choice (think peppers, onions and mushrooms) in place of the spinach.

INGREDIENTS: Cubed challah, crusts removed 1 onion, diced 4 cloves garlic, diced 1 lb. frozen spinach, defrosted Oil for sautéing 2 cups shredded cheese 5 eggs ¼ cup milk Salt and pepper

DIRECTIONS: 1. Sauté onion and garlic in oil until wilted. Add spinach and mix until completely combined. 2. Spread single layer of cubed challah at the bottom of a 9x13 pan. Cover challah with half of the spinach mixture. Cover spinach mixture with 1 cup shredded cheese. Repeat another layer each of challah, spinach and cheese. 3. In a small bowl, mix eggs, milk and spices. Pour over everything in 9x13. Bake covered on 350° for 1 hour.

THE MONSEY VIEW / 79


SUGARED CHALLAH BALLS This is a more of a patchke than the previous recipes, but it can be an enjoyable melaveh malka activity for all.

INGREDIENTS: 1 medium challah, crusts removed ½ cup sugar 1 T. vanilla sugar 1 egg Raspberry spread Confectioners sugar Oil for frying

DIRECTIONS: 1. Place challah into a bowl of water and let soak for about 10 minutes. Squeeze water out of the challah. 2. Add sugar, vanilla sugar and egg to soaked challah. Because every challah is slightly different in size, you might have to adjust sugar and egg measurements. The consistency should be that of a wet dough. 3. Heat oil in a large pot. Form a ball of dough with the challah mixture, add spoon of raspberry spread to the top and cover with additional dough. Fry in oil until light brown. 4. When done frying, sprinkle confectioners sugar over balls. Serve immediately.

“Do you like you like crossword puzzles?” The question seemed nearly ludicrous, considering the formal invitation that had arrived in the mail. For the young women who’d received the summons, they’d assumed the invites had to do with courses they were taking. And now, as they sat privately with the professor who’d invited them, many girls were baffled. Why were they being asked about their affinity — or lack thereof — for word games? For some young women, the answer was no, and they were subsequently dismissed from the meeting. For those who answered yes, however, the second question was quick to arrive. “Are you engaged to be married?” Those who were, were sent on their way. The unengaged fans of crossword

puzzles had little inkling that their lives were about to drastically change. It was at this point they were informed that they had been hand-picked by the U.S. Navy to enroll in a special course that would teach them cryptanalysis — the work of decoding encoded material. Should they choose to accept and pass the entrance exams, these young women would become vital players in the Allied forces. Until this point, cryptology (the work of both encoding and decoding) had little foothold in the world of war. Before World War I, communication over distance had been lengthy in process, leaving much news old news by the time it reached the intended party. With the advent of radio communication, cryptology slowly began picking up speed, and by the time evil Hitler and his fiendish friends in power

never to foe. If anyone asked what these women did for a living, they were trained to answer that they emptied wastebaskets, sharpened pencils and the like. In reality, the work was intense, cerebral and emotional at times, as it would often happen that women would decode messages bearing information about the loss of loved ones, the pain worsened by the undertone of pride that came from the enemy who wiped them out. Some women walked away with psychological damage. Their work was definitely not secretarial in nature. Over in Arlington, Virginia — a hop, skip and jump from America’s capital city — an educational institution was requisitioned by the army and encircled in reams of barbed wire. The young women who arrived at Arlington Hall felt the gravity of war as they entered the complex guarded by uniformed soldiers. Here they would spend the duration of the war, learning, cracking, decoding. It was summer when the first wave of women arrived, and a hot one it was. With no air conditioning, the code-breakers who entered the hall dressed in crisp clothing soon found themselves drenched with The Enigma coding machine sweat. Fans mounted high above did little to alleviate the heat and much to annoy the women as encrypted papers would often To this end, the U.S. Navy targeted the Seven Sisters take flight.

While recruits to the Navy cryptology program were learning about spelling patterns, letter frequency (E is the most oft-used letter) and basic rules of deciphering, the U.S. Army was also on a mission to recruit young women to a similar program. The Army reached out to schoolteachers and other civilians, offering them a chance to make a difference in the war — a chance to save the lives of their loved ones who had been shipped away to the European theater where war raged on a daily basis. In all, roughly 11,000 young women answered the call and enrolled either under the Navy or the Army as cryptanalysts — though very few outside of the military knew of their contribution until recently. Oaths of secrecy were required to be taken; the punishment for revealing information: death. Never were details of the work they were doing to leave their lips, neither to friend nor family, and certainly mounted attacks against the rest of the world, communications were flying back and forth across the globe at an unheard-of rate. It was time to take the work of cryptology seriously.

Intercepted transmissions from the Purple machine would prove to be the most valuable source of information the Allies could receive. General Baron Hiroshi Oshima served as Japan’s ambassador to Germany and was a close confidant of Hitler, yemach shemo. He was also an erudite communicator who wrote long and detailed reports that were sent back to Tokyo — and of course, were delivered right into American hands via the Purple machine. Reports from many sectors of the Axis forces were discovered this way, and many of their military actions and shipments were disrupted, saving thousands upon thousands of American lives. As for the Enigma, the most complex version called “The Shark” proved extremely difficult to crack. And cracking it was a must. The year 1942 was devastating to the Allied American soldiers heading to beach of forces, with German U-boats sinking more Normandy on D-Day than 500 Allied ships attempting an Atlantic encrypted into U.S. ciphers before being passed along crossing. March 1943 proved to be worst of all, with 95 the intelligence route, requiring them all to be decoded ships downed in that month alone. Breaking The Shark back into the original, unknown codes. Once this was meant revealing the whereabouts of the deadly U-boats done, a batch of women were trained to sit and analyze that menaced the Allies. In a stroke of hashgacha pratis, a cipher book was salmessages, looking for patterns they’d seen before. Those working on Japanese transmissions were kept separate vaged from a sinking U-boat downed by British forces from those working on German transmissions; likewise in October 1942. This helped British code-breakers dein regard to Italian messages and so on. Even within cipher an Enigma message for the first time, revealing each division, different ciphers were clearly being the location of fifteen U-boats, saving many Allied lives. used for different transmissions. These decoders were Despite this success, The Shark was a complex machine trained to recognize and remember patterns they’d with ever-changing ciphers, leaving the Brits locked out seen in previous messages in order to pick out individ- of the solution more often than being ushered in. In order to truly gain mastery over the Enigma, mulual words, numbers or frequent letter pairings. Once an opening was made in the cipher, the rest of the message tiple high-speed machines that were capable of testing would quickly follow. At that point, the decoded mes- every possible code combination needed to be built. The sage would have to make its way to a team of translators. Allied forces decided that America was the right place for this. Over 100 bombes, as the machines were called, Only then would the final message be understood. There are many complex ways to encode a message, were built and put into operation at the Naval Annex ranging from simply substituting one letter for another, to incredibly intricate ciphers that involve rotating variables, unusual/infrequent patterning and challenging math procedures. Some encryptions could only be understood with the help of codebooks that acted like dictionaries, attributing random numbers and letters to various words, symbols and punctuation. For Allied forces to capture these codebooks was a boon beyond belief. Two of the most challenging communications to decipher came from the Japanese Purple machine and the German Enigma. The Purple machine was unique in the fact that six letters were encrypted separately from the other twenty. Breaking the code of six letters was relatively easy, but breaking the “twenties” stumped Americans for close to two years. It was a woman named Genevieve Grotjan who finally broke the code.

near Washington. The code-breaking team was almost entirely female. Though it took a while to master the science behind The Shark, by September 1943 the U.S. bombes were deciphering all Atlantic U-boat messages within roughly twenty minutes of transmission, allowing them to sweep the ocean clear of U-boats as well as the German submarines that refueled them. The tide had turned, giving the Allied forces the upper hand. The information coming in from the Purple machine and The Shark proved invaluable. Long, detailed messages from Oshima and Erwin Rommel, the Nazi field marshal, well described Axis encampments, specifically along the beaches of Normandy. It was largely due to these intercepted transmissions that Allied forces decided to attack precisely at Normandy in what is historically known as D-Day. To throw the Axis off their trail, Allied forces created what Winston Churchill called a “bodyguard of lies,� using double agents and falsified radio transmissions to create the appearance of Allied forces amassing in much larger numbers and over a much larger area than the Axis expected. To complete the ruse, two phantom armies were created: one supposedly positioned near Norway, fabricated for the purpose of retaining the German forces in that location when the attack on Normandy began; and the second, supposedly preparing for a cross-channel attack at Pas de Calais, the area the Germans were led to believe would be where the Allied siege would take place. In order for these phantom armies to appear as if they truly existed, cryptologic communications between these armies and the rest of the Allied forces needed to exist in realistic form. After all, just as the Allies were code-cracking against the Axis, so too were the Axis code-cracking against the Allies. A large percentage of these false communications originated in Arlington Hall, fabricated by the female code-breakers who, until recently, no one even knew existed. There they studied typical Allied transmission patterns, learning to mimic these communications in timing, frequency, volume and language. All of their efforts were not in vain. The ruse worked perfectly and the downfall of the Axis was at hand. D-Day was a great success, despite the tremendous loss of life on all sides, leading to the beginning of the end of the war. While the soldiers who fought valiantly on the battlefield to vanquish evil will forever be remembered for their contribution, it is only now that the women who made up roughly 80% of America’s cryptology unit are going down in the history books. With the recent revelation of their participation in war efforts, they will no longer be remembered as the girls who supposedly emptied wastebaskets and sharpened pencils. They will be remembered as Girls of Grit.

Across the United States, the noose is being lowered for cursive writing. No longer a part of the Common Core Standards, educational institutions throughout the country have dropped the teaching of this time-honored skill from their curricula. It is sad to think that many children across the U.S. will no longer be able to sign their own names and form the letter connections.. It is frightening that even today, there are U.S. students who see historical documents and are unable to read their words, as if if they were attempting to decipher ancient writing in hieroglyphics. We’ve entered the digital era, and there’s no going back, but is the written word to go entirely extinct for the adults of the next generation? Not in Monsey, and not as long as our premiere institutions have a say in the matter. Principals from our local heimishe schools weigh in to tell us why they keep cursive writing alive, and why they are determined not to deny their students the gift of proper handwriting.

Mrs. Weinberger

BNOS YISROEL VIZNITZ Why we teach and enforce cursive writing: Even as the world goes digital and the teaching of cursive writing is being dropped by many schools across the country, we believe that as human beings, this basic skill of being able to communicate by hand is one that every child deserves to master. And the responsibility for teaching and ingraining this skill lies with the educators during students’ formative years in elementary school. Some educators have also dropped the teaching of multiplication, arguing that with the use of calculators and other technology, children no longer need to access this knowledge. But it is our duty to give the students under our tutelage the tools for these basic skills; we may be a computer generation, but we won’t ever turn into machines. Our students still need to pick up a pen and write a note, as they will need to be able to compute math facts mentally as part of daily living. When teaching cursive, our goal is not perfection, but proper formation and letter connections — and fluency.

How we encourage our girls to learn and perfect their handwriting: Over the years, we have instituted programs and contests to motivate the students throughout elementary school to learn and practice the proper formation of the letters and their connections. We also enforce writing in script on all submitted work, so the girls are fluent and comfortable with writing in cursive by the time they graduate elementary school. “Bell work” in our school, which is completed during the first few minutes of class time, consists of a rotation system of math facts and handwriting, which further ingrains these skills as habit.

Why we teach and enforce cursive writing: We’ve researched the benefits of script writing, and it runs so much more deeply than the mastery of the skill, which in itself is an important factor. The learning of cursive improves brain development in areas of language, memory, organization and thinking, and stimulates connections in the brain. The act of writing cursive also promotes increased comprehension and self-control. We want our students to have those gains, and so cursive writing is an important part of our curriculum, learned in third grade and enforced throughout elementary school.

How we encourage our girls to learn and perfect their handwriting: We continue much practice of script writing in fourth grade, and as time goes on, they master the skill beautifully.

Mrs. Ungar

OHEL BLIMA ROCHEL OF BOBOV MONSEY Why we teach and enforce cursive writing: Unlike Unlike much of the world out there today, we are staunch advocates for teaching cursive writing. The world of digital technology is not something we encourage, and we feel that proper handwriting is a crucial part of each student’s education. In our society specifically, handwriting is important for our students, who will grow into the Yiddishe mothers of tomorrow. Whether it’s a mitzvah note or just a thank-you card, we want our girls to be able to rely on proper and fluent handwriting in their day-to-day correspondences. In addition to the practical aspects of this valuable skill, we believe that handwriting is an integral part of one’s identity and a reflection of one’s personality. This goes further than in-depth handwriting analysis; just looking at one’s handwriting says so much about a person. We want to empower our girls with the gift of being able to present themselves properly, and therefore we enforce neatness not only in cursive, but in handwriting in general.

How we encourage our girls to learn and perfect their handwriting: Our girls in grades 1 through 5 have handwriting books with work that is completed on a consistent basis at the start of each day. To motivate the girls to write neatly and accurately, rewards for properly written papers are distributed biweekly through our special handwriting program. While we generally do not offer incentives for learning, this is one area where we want to motivate our girls to keep practicing, even if they don’t presently appreciate what they stand to gain in the future. Our third grade has an exceptional teacher who, with a one-of-a-kind curriculum, motivates and encourages the girls, introducing them to the world of cursive with clarity. We also enforce writing in script across the board in grades 3 through 8, and papers only get graded if written properly in cursive.

Why we teach and enforce cursive writing: Cursive writing is a tool that we want our students to be able to bank on as they grow into adulthood. It’s something that may take a lot of effort to learnwhile developing find motor skills. Even a student who doesn’t appreciate it now will later be grateful for this means of communication they gain by mastering the art of script writing. We’re giving them a gift they’ll cherish down the road.

How we encourage our girls to learn and perfect their handwriting: We have it on our curriculum as a mandatory subject, but we motivate the girls by teaching them how to write the letters in a fun and creative way. They work on perfecting their handwriting since all written work is submitted in script.

Mrs. Friedlander

UTA OF SATMAR Why we teach and enforce cursive writing: The physical act of learning and practicing cursive writing gives the girls training that is so lacking in this era of instant gratification and impulsivity. In addition to the mastery of a tool that will allow our students to come across professionally as adults, students stand to gain so much from the learning process itself, where repetition and discipline are required as the girls form the letters time and again until mastery is achieved. This practice trains children in the process of investing effort and concentration and polishing their work until they reach perfection. Today, in a society where little matters in terms of formality and etiquette has taken a downward turn, cursive writing is a skill we want to teach. There’s something special about handwriting that we want our girls to have.

How we encourage our girls to learn and perfect their handwriting: Since so much precious time in third grade is dedicated to training the girls in cursive, we definitely reinforce it in the upper elementary grades by requiring all written work to be submitted in script only. Of course, there are some exceptions, such as when there’s the need to spell out words in print on spelling tests so that the alphabet should be easy to differentiate and when a particular student is struggling with fine motor skills. Other than that, however, script writing is expected across the board through eighth grade.

Mrs. Neuberger

BNOS ESTHER PUPA Why we teach and enforce cursive writing: We teach and encourage cursive writing because we want to upkeep the cultural tradition of proper writing, and we feel it is an integral part of education. A person who doesn’t know how to hold a pen or write properly is lacking a basic tool of expression. There’s a personal touch — a sense of connection — that comes through in the handwritten word. Computer-generated text may have the same content, but there it’s lacking emotion; the words come across as cold and impersonal. Even print writing will never convey the same feelings as a note written in cursive, and if our girls will be using their handwriting, and we hope they will, they may as well access the tools that allow for quicker note-taking and communication.

How we encourage our girls to learn and perfect their handwriting: We have a phenomenal curriculum that encourages our girls to practice and habitually integrate cursive in their daily writing. During certain parts of the day they write only in cursive, and we focus on practice and perfection throughout their elementary school years.

Mrs. Sian Cohen and Mrs. Sara Levy

YESHIVA OF SPRING VALLEY Our approach to cursive writing: The skill of writing in script is immeasurable. We incorporate script into our third grade curriculum. We also want our students to have the ability to read cursive documents and fonts. We then review and promote cursive in fourth grade and encourage our learners to write in cursive in fifth grade. However, from sixth grade and on, our students can choose their preferred handwriting. By that point our students are computer-literate and proficient in typing up their own projects and assignments. Because of today’s technological advances, computer-generated reports are encouraged in junior high.

While calligraphy in ancient history was the only medium for recording material, the art has not been lost through the ages, despite the advent of the printing press. Rather, it developed further, progressing alongside the rest of the world and matching the needs of the people. Today, calligraphy is all about taking a set of alphabet and turning it into something akin to art. That’s the reason some favor calligraphy more for its design than content, and in those cases, when decorative calligraphy may result in a piece of art that is beautifully illegible, that may be fine, too!

104 / THE MONSEY VIEW / December 27, 2017 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

CALLIGRAPHY TOOLS Calligraphers the world over use different tools to create their art, which only makes calligraphy more expressive. The Chinese, for instance, use brushes of various sizes and textures to create the distinctly sweeping strokes their characters are known for. Those writing Roman calligraphy, however, mostly favor pens with a variety of differently shaped and sized nibs to create narrower and wider strokes. A dip pen, or nib pen, has no internal reservoir to hold the ink. As its name suggests, a dip pen gets dipped into an inkwell so that it can continue writing, though it may also be refilled by syringe or eyedropper. Some calligraphers choose to attach an external reservoir to a dip pen to allow for a few minutes of un-


interrupted writing. Though all this must mean quite a headache for a calligrapher, dip pens can handle preferred types of ink that would clog a fountain pen, and it can also more easily create finer lines and lines of varying widths. A fountain pen, contrary to a dip pen, contains an internal reservoir for ink. This reservoir can be refilled in manners similar to the dip pen, though some fountain pens use removable reservoirs prefilled with ink.

CALLIGRAPHY HANDS Hands in calligraphy don’t refer to the appendage — though these most certainly do play a big role! — but rather refer to the script of writing.

Roman Rustic Capitals

Roman Rustic Capitals was used in ancient Rome as the written and less rigid version of the large block letters used for inscriptions in that era. This hand gives a strong, though not too harsh, impression. Interestingly, ancient Romans only used 23 letters, because those were the sounds needed to represent Latin, their most central language. The letters J, U and W were later added to the set to express the sounds of other languages. The Roman Rustic J and W were created by modern calligraphers, but the U is most commonly still represented by the V. Also, in Roman Rustic, the B, F and L are slightly taller than the rest of the letters.

Uncial

Uncial is a majuscule script, which means it uses only capital letters, and in ancient times, it was used to write Roman, Greek and Gothic, a Germanic language. This hand has a rounded look, possibly because it was also used to write Greek, though some say this rounded manner of writing became more popular when parchment replaced papyrus as the writing surface of choice. Parchment was much easier to work with than papyrus, which had been much

rougher and required a surer hand with sharper angles and multiple strokes.

English Roundhand

Gothic

Gothic script, also known as Blackletter or Textura, is a formal-looking script characterized by its heavy, angular style and vertical lines. A wide variety of styles fall under Gothic script, and today they are used most commonly in invitations, certificates and other formal documents, as well as for their design. The reason such a heavy script was so popular in medieval Europe? Gothic script can be condensed, which translated into less space used per block of text, and subsequently, lower production costs.

This hand is characterized by wider and narrower strokes that create a beautiful, shaded script. English Roundhand is sometimes referred to as Cop-

A HAND IN HISTORY American historians have recorded the lives and stories of many illustrious individuals in our country’s history, but alongside those famous names we all know worked lesser-known people who played a vital, though not nearly as grand, role in the establishment of the United States of America. While it is difficult for us to imagine a world where every document was handwritten, that world did exist along with the tools and players to make it work. Capitol Hill of old kept a large staff of master penman, or engrossers, whose job was to letter the text of important documents. Engrossers, now extinct, are people we hardly hear about, but their writing appears on the original handwritten documents now preserved in the National Archives. Though the first draft of the Declaration of Independence was written by Thomas Jefferson, researchers believe that Timothy Matlack, an influential political figure, was the engrosser chosen to pen the final copy. The Declaration was written in English Roundhand, or Engrosser’s Script, and its heading and the phrase “Free and Independent States” in the text were lettered in the Gothic hand. The United State Constitution is another handwritten document beginning with the famous words “We the People.” The Constitution was penned by Jacob Shallus, an Assistant Clerk to the Pennsylvania General Assembly, who was paid $30 for his efforts. A steady hand seems to have run in his family; his brother Thomas was a well-known mapmaker.

perplate script ever since it was produced on copper plates used for printing in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. These plates themselves were based on the elaborately styled English Roundhand of the time. Another name for this hand is Engrosser’s for the engrossers of old who would use this hand to copy important documents (see sidebar).

Italic

Italic, a semi-cursive hand, is also known as Chancery Cursive. It is a basic calligraphy hand that is great for beginners to learn, yet it produces a script that is pleasing to the eye and easy to read. The cursive script was first developed when medieval scribes, who used delicate quills, found it easier to refrain from lifting their hands while writing. The word “cursive” itself is derived from Latin cursivus, which means running.

PART 8

TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE I’M ON A HIGH. I just got my alltime favorite complaint, again. (No, not compliment. Complaint.) I love hearing from people, “I’m not sure this is really me; it sounds too good.” Honest, word for word. Most people are decent enough to preface their complaint with a compliment: “It looks really nice. Thank you for getting this done so quickly. Just one thing…” Then I brace myself as their tone of voice quickly transitions from grateful client to worried consumer. But every time I get ready to hear that they don’t like the way it sounds, or don’t feel like it portrays their strengths well, that’s never it. It’s always the same problem. My initial response is that everything and anything can still be changed. When I send out a resume, I write clearly in the subject line, “first draft,” and I don’t charge until the customer is satisfied. Pretty high

myself.” I reminded him that we could still make any changes that he liked and that he would have the final say on every dot on the page. Then I started reviewing what had been written about him, translating every word and phrase from “Resumese” to plain English. “I was just a day camp counselor, not a Program Leader,” he insisted. “That’s just another word for it,” I told him. “Was it a program? Did you lead people (or children)?” Yes. “Managing daily functions” meant he made sure all noses were wiped and that the potato chip bags were put in the garbage. Or, shall we say, in the sanitary waste disposal compartment. Instead of saying that he worked

standard, and it’s been working. I received a request yesterday from a young man looking for his first job. Recently married, his work experience was… kollel. After hearing what kind of job he was looking for, I assured him that I could put together a resume that would make him sound as good a candidate as he really was. We spent about 15 minutes on the phone, during which he responded to my questions about his “I was just a day camp personality, interests, life counselor, not a Program experiences and general information. Leader,” he insisted. I got the call today a few minutes after Shloimy received the first draft of his for his father’s Amazon business resume. He thanked me for getting during bein hazmanin, packaging it done so quickly and then con- items and dropping them off at tinued with his complaint: “It just UPS, he became an E-Commerce sounds too good; I’m not sure that I Executive Assistant with a seasoncan really say all these things about al position at XYZ Inc., where he


was responsible for ensuring timely orders and deliveries, tracking shipments, and minute-to-minute inventory management using top-quality industry software. Huh? Yes, that’s right. That’s you. And so we went through the page, translating each word from English to “Normal People English.” After listening to me defining and defending the descriptions of himself like a seasoned lawyer in court, he admitted defeat. I asked him if there was anything at all that he felt wasn’t completely true. If so, we would have to delete it. “No,” he said. “It’s all true, it just sounds better than if I would have said it.” Which is why he was paying me to do it for him, I reminded him. Job accomplished. Of course, exaggerating details and puffing up experiences too much is a bad idea since it will come to haunt the potential employee during the interview when asked to describe exactly what it was they did at certain positions. If a person will not be ready to respond on the level that the resume made them sound, they will come off as a fool and likely screw up the interview. It’s important to keep the descriptions within the boundary of realism, with just enough proper adjectives to give the resume a positive spin. The point of the resume is obviously to highlight a person’s strengths, which is what I aim to do. But hey, we all have our weaknesses. This is mine.

FUN FACTS

Approximately 90% of the U.S. population is right-handed, with only the remaining 10%, which amounts to about 30 million people, being left-handed. Righties tend to be more logical and analytical. Left-handed people are generally more creative. They are drawn to careers in art and music. According to one study, left-handed people have much better problemsolving skills and higher IQs than right-handed people.

Exactly what defines one’s handedness is arguable. Some say it’s determined solely by the hand used for writing, while others disagree and say the handedness is based on which hand is used to do all tasks.

Studies have shown that if a left-hander injures his dominant hand, he has an easier time learning to use his other hand than a right-handed person who needs to learn to rely on his left hand. Most musical instruments, game equipment, gadgets and tools such as can openers, scissors and door handles are designed for right-handed individuals. Writing in a spiral notebook, for instance, can be uncomfortable for a leftie. Writing English is also hard, since it’s written from left to right.

There are some stores, such as Lefty’s: The Left-handed Shop, that cater specifically to the left-handed minority. Infants don’t yet choose one hand over the other when grasping an object. A child between 36 and 48 months of age will generally begin to lead with his dominant hand.

Left-handedness is more common in identical twins than single individuals, with 21% of identical twins having one twin who’s left-handed. A surprisingly high number of recent U.S. presidents were left-handed. Of the last seven, four were lefties: President Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Gerald Ford. Other popular left-handed figures include Aristotle, Albert Einstein, Benjamin Franklin and Bill Gates.

112 / THE MONSEY VIEW / December 27, 2017 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

August 13 is International Left-Handers Day, when lefties celebrate with the purpose of increasing awareness about the left-handed lifestyle. Advice on how this day should be celebrated includes creating a “leftie zone,” a designated area where everything must be done in a left-handed fashion. And that rule extends to any right-handers who enter the zone.


An ambidextrous person is someone who can do any task equally well with either the right or the left hand. At least three presidents have been given this designation. One of them, James A. Garfield was said to have the ability to write Latin with his right hand and Greek with his left hand simultaneously. (The other two were Harry S. Truman and Ronald Reagan.)

FORCING CHANGES In the past, left-handed individuals were often viewed as inferior. This is why, in many cultures, lefthanders were encouraged and sometimes forced to perform activities and write with the right hand.

Forcing left-handers to change the use of the hand that is not natural for them can have very bad effects including learning disorders, stuttering and shyness, to name a few.

The custom of forcing children to change is encouraged still today in many Asian countries. In India and Indonesia, it is considered rude to eat with the left hand. In Taiwan, close to 60% of the children studied have been forced to change handedness. In Japan, only 0.7% of natural left-handed individuals use their left hand for writing.

HANDEDNESS IN HALACHA According to halacha, a left-hander is one who does most activities, such as writing and cutting, with his left hand. In the Torah, a left-handed person is referred to as one whose power in the right hand is limited.

A kohen was not allowed to perform the avodah in the Beis Hamikdash if he was a leftie.

The most striking difference for left-handed individuals halacha-wise is the manner in which the tefillin shel yad is put on. A right-handed male will bind his tefillin on his left hand, while a left-handed person will bind it on his right hand. Some say that determining with which hand to put on tefillin depends on which hand is used in writing; thus, a left-handed individual who does everything with his left hand, but uses his right hand in writing, should wear tefillin on his left hand, as all right-handed people do. The reasoning behind this is that we say in Shema, “U’kshartem l’os al yadecha,” which refers to the mitzvah of tefillin shel yad. Immediately thereafter, we say “U’chesavtem... — and inscribe them...” Since the action of binding the tefillin is juxtaposed with “inscribing,” we learn from here that the hand with which one uses to write is the same hand with which one binds his tefillin.

When making a bracha, one should hold the dvar mitzvah in the hand that he uses more. A right-handed person should hold the food, besamim, kiddush cup or shamash of the Chanukah menorah in his right hand, while a left-handed person should hold the object in question in his left hand.

At the completion of Shemoneh Esrei, the custom is to take three steps backwards. One should take the first step with his weaker foot to show that it is not pleasant for him to part with Hakadosh Baruch Hu. Therefore, right-handers should begin with the left foot and a left-hander should begin with the right foot. The same reasoning applies to removing one’s tefillin. One should use his weaker hand for the same purpose of not rushing to finish.

ACROSS


I’ll quickly call the factory’s security guard. It’s dangerous for children to deal with thieves.

There’s something suspicious in the storage room. Come quickly!

Until Avraham comes back, we’ll put heavy boxes at the exit so our suspect won’t escape.

Let’s go! We’ll enter through the building. I have a key.

I must create a distraction.

I’ll throw something heavy out the window. They’ll think I jumped out from there and will run to catch me. Meanwhile, I’ll escape from the main entrance. We saw him behind this row.

h! Great! It worked! Now I just need to push away the barrier the children made.

You heard that? Seems like he escaped through the window.

We’ll catch him!

We’ll join you.

Recap: Mutty hears someone in the factory’s storage room and runs to get the security guard.
