What is the Pidyon Rashash? It's a redemption revealed by the Arizal, taught by the holy Rashash. The Rashash instructs in his Sefer (Nekudot Hakesef) to set aside 160 pure silver coins and evoke rachamei Shamayim with esoteric tefilos. The Pidyon Rashash is renowned to have brought about yeshuos for refuos, shidduchim, parnassah, children, shalom bayis, and more, for yidden through the generations. In honor of the Rashashâ€™s yahrtzeit, the esteemed talmidei chachamim of Kollel Chatzos will perform the Pidyon Rashash in Meron. Each pidyon is performed specially for every individual.

After reading your article on bariatric surgery, I have some questions. How many years post-surgery are the women who shared their experiences? What happens five years down the line? With the sleeve, I think the stomach can stretch over time, allowing more food to be consumed at once. I’ve heard from those who have done the sleeve that they tend to feel cold very quickly. What does this stem from? And for those who don’t keep to the diet as they should and don’t take the correct vitamins, what happens then? Is it dangerous? Thank you so much for your informative articles. Please keep them coming! H. Friedman THE MONSEY VIEW RESPONDS: The women who were interviewed are respectively three and a half years, two years and a few months post-surgery. We encourage readers to share any additional info they may have.
After reading about bariatric surgery, I was left wondering how anybody could think that doing one of the surgeries is at all healthy, even if the patient is very obese. It seems like caloric intake postsurgery is well below what the body needs to survive, due simply to the inability to eat normal-sized portions. I have a neighbor who lost tons of weight after doing the surgery, and while she looked great for a while, she is now terribly gaunt and I am almost scared to look at her. If someone does a surgery that is non-reversible, I worry that they may run into significant health problems due to starvation. Why have we, M&S SHOE REPAIR

RESPECTING PROFESSIONALS I would like to address a topic that is eating at me for a while. My husband is an ehrliche yungerman who works hard as a handyman to make parnassah and support his family. There are unfortunately many days when he comes home degraded and dejected by the second-class attitude he receives in some homes where his prices are considered negotiable and something to bargain about. Just imagine yourself waiting for your $500 at the end of a tiring week, and your boss approaches you and sweetly suggests, “How about if we just settle for $400?” Of course all workers — especially our Yiddishe brothers — should be treated with respect, but do you realize that any handyman, plumber, electrician, etc. went through rigorous training and expensive testing and licensing to qualify as such? He didn’t just “learn a few tricks”! Do you know what he knows? Please give him the respect you show to all upstanding professionals! Understand that he, too, has expenses in his line, he has a family to support, and yes — his time is worth the amount he is charging. With hope for an understanding response from our wonderful community. Your Handyman’s Wife
KNOWING YOUR PRODUCE I was shopping in Costco, and as I was selecting some produce, I saw a label on the tangerines stating that the products were from Israel. I wanted to share this l’to’eles harabim, so that Costco shoppers can be aware that many produce they sell are from Israel and should not be purchased, as they pose halachic concerns.

RE: IN SEARCH OF A CURE (ISSUE #131) In response to “Desperate for Relief,” I would like to share with you my experience, which will hopefully shed light on your issue. My six-yearold child started suffering from minor cough tics, which I first thought were medically related. After extensive testing and seeing all specialists in the field, I was given the tic verdict. The doctors told me to ignore the symptoms as most of these cases disappear with time. When I spoke to others for guidance, I was told that tics are emotional and that I should just give some more TLC to my child. However, I knew my child is outgoing and has a happy personality, and this answer didn’t sound right. There was one more possibility I wanted to rule out, and that was PANDAS. This is an autoimmune response to strep and other infections. The antibodies that a body produces to fight off the infection irritate a small portion of the brain and can cause tics or other symptoms. (Note: PANDAS can also cause way worse symptoms, including personality disorders.) Although the specialist dismissed this as an “unknown condition,” I contacted Dr. Susan Schulman who is known for her expertise in this matter. You can read her book Understanding Your Child’s Health for more information on this. (As an aside, I urge all parents to read her book as she has exceptional experience in all areas of health for our children.) After testing with some antibiotics, we started seeing definite im-

provement. We monitored the situation closely throughout, and after a few months were, baruch Hashem, able to wean the child off the medication with a near-100% refuah.

RE: THE HEALTH OF OUR CHILDREN (ISSUE #130) I would like to take issue with what R.S. wrote in her letter regarding school lunches. She wrote that “with many two-working-parent households, the concept of serving a hot, nutritious first meal of the day seems to have fallen at the wayside.” As a working mother, serving a warm breakfast is high on my list of priorities. Among the food my kids get served in the morning are scrambled or sunny-sideup eggs, vegetable salad, pancakes, grilled cheese sandwiches, and yes, sometimes just cream cheese sandwiches and cereal and milk. Do they never go to school hungry? Oh, yes, but that’s more due to the fact that they are not always in the mood for food than the fact that their mother works. Please don’t blame lack of function in a house on the fact that Mommy does not stay home all day. Thank you, A Working Mother

THE INSIDE NUTRITION BY TANYA:
EDITION CHAPTER 22
By: Basya Kovacs
50 / THE MONSEY VIEW / January 17, 2018 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
I HAD AN INTERESTING experience this week when I took on a client because the nutrition counselor she was originally working with could no longer fit her slot into her schedule. During our session the client mentioned to me that she asked both myself and the other nutrition counselor the same question and received two different answers. To be honest, my first thought was that she shouldn’t go looking for second opinions, just stick to her counselor and trust her guidance. But being that after a schedule change she really did have access to two nutrition counselors, I thought it only fair to hear out the discrepancy and see if I could make any sense of it. The question at hand turned out to be in regard to lentil soup. Because this client was a vegetarian, we were hard-pressed to find proteins that would satisfy her and still provide her with the necessary nourishment. I turned to beans, chickpeas, quinoa and lentils, all of which are high in protein, to fill that need. Apparently, however, she must have been left somewhat unclear as to how to fit lentil soup into her plan, and she texted her other counselor asking if the lentil soup should be counted as a protein or a starch. The counselor rightly answered, “It counts as a starchy soup; just add a protein to complete the meal.” She then texted me and inquired the same — is the lentil soup a protein or a starch? — to which I answered, “Use it as a protein, and add a starch to the meal.” Two different counselors, two different answers.
I explained to her that the other counselor wasn’t wrong and neither was I. Lentil soup is a wonderful food with plenty of protein, carbohydrates and fiber and can technically be counted both ways. I was happy that I looked into it rather than assuming my coworker or I was wrong. In general, whenever I hear from a client that a different client was “allowed” something that he or she wasn’t, or that a different counselor “allows” a certain item, my first thought is, there must be a good reason for this discrepancy, and even more, this is why people shouldn’t follow each other’s plans! Each plan truly is customized and becomes more and more customized as time goes on and the client settles into their food plan.
This is why people shouldn’t follow each other’s plans! For example, I have one client on our plan who takes her treat every single night. I encourage her to do so, because as a picky eater, she doesn’t eat much chicken, fish or meat, and her dinners are far from filling. Although I encourage her to expand her palate and fill up on vegetables, I know that her dinner is always a bit sparse.
Now in M onsey ! Therefore, I encourage her to take her treat at night, because I prefer that she have a prepackaged, portioncontrolled treat rather than a night of nibbling from the cabinet. This same client has a relative, also on the plan, whom I actually discourage from taking treats. She has a slow metabolism and is a quite disciplined eater, and she loses best by eating nothing after dinner. She recently asked me why her sister-in-law is “allowed” to have a treat and she isn’t. Without causing family drama, I explained to her my rationale for discouraging her treat and told her that each and every client is a world unto themselves. I have plenty of similar examples where two clients will receive different answers from the same nutrition counselor, or one client will receive two different answers from two different nutrition counselors. So keep in mind that when we say that every plan is tailor-made for the needs of each client, it’s not just cliche. What we are really saying is that we actually listen and pay close attention to each client’s habits and needs and base our recommendations on what will work for them as individuals.

IT WAS PAIN THAT FEW PEOPLE could even imagine. One by one, Rabbi Yosef Ekstein lost four children to Tay-Sachs disease. Even more difficult to imagine was Rabbi Ekstein’s response to the years of pain that he had suffered: He founded Dor Yeshorim. It took many years of hard work for his idea of community-wide genetic testing to be accepted, but he was willing to put in the effort if it meant that other families would be spared the pain that his own family had endured. Today, more than 20,000 individuals are tested for up to sixteen genetic conditions through Dor Yeshorim each year, and the incidence of genetic disease within the frum world has declined dramatically. Rabbi Hershel Weber was leaving shul when he witnessed a man suffer a heart attack and fall to the ground unconscious. Someone called 911, but they took so long to arrive that the man passed away. Rabbi Weber resolved to figure out a way for medical help to arrive faster so that more lives could be saved. He reasoned that if more people throughout the community were trained as EMTs, then help could arrive more quickly. Rabbi Weber founded Hatzolah, which today boasts the fastest response time in the country. At the age of thirteen, young Yaakov Yosef Herman was entrusted into the care of cousins in America until his family would have the money to join him. He had a job that paid $1.25 a week, and his cousins agreed to give him room and board for $1.00 a week. A few weeks after beginning this arrangement, the cousins told young Yaakov Yosef that they were raising his rent; he would now have to turn over all of his earnings to them. In response to this betrayal, Yaakov Yosef moved out. Having no place to stay, Yaakov Yosef spent that Shabbos alone on a bench in the park. At the tender age of thirteen, the boy resolved to always keep an open home, never turning away a person in need of a place to stay. Indeed, that is exactly what he did. Before Yaakov Yosef married, he made sure his kallah agreed to keep an open home. Rabbi Herman became world-famous for

his hachnasas orchim. Brany Rosen was happily married and had a job she enjoyed, but something was missing from her life: children. As year after year passed by without the cry of baby, Brany heard a different cry. Surely there were other couples suffering through childlessness, but were suffering alone. Brany went on to co-found A TIME, an organization dedicated to easing the suffering of couples facing the challenge of infertility. What began as a forum for couples to band together in their challenge is now a worldwide organization providing rabbinical guidance, medical referrals, Shabbatons, travel support and numerous other services. In this week’s parsha, Hashem commands Klal Yisroel to establish a calendar based on the cycle of the moon as opposed to the sun, like most calendars. What is the connection between the moon and the Jewish People? The Sfas Emes explains that the moon can shine through even the darkest of nights. Likewise, the Jewish People are uniquely capable of spreading light in the darkest of places and the darkest of times. What do Rabbi Ekstein, Rabbi Weber, Rabbi Herman and Brany Rosen all have in common? Each one faced a situation of tremendous darkness, and each one responded by spreading light. Similar stories abound. How many stories have we all heard or read about people giving away their last slice of bread during the war so that another person might live? How many people entrust their life savings into free-loan gemachs, so that others might borrow the money they need to get by? Moshe Rabbeinu grew up in the lap of luxury, raised as the son of Paroh. Nevertheless, he saw his brethren suffering slavery and injustice, and he could not stand by. Moshe sacrificed everything he had b’gashmius and ultimately led his people out of bondage. The ability to see past our own pain or our own desires and needs and to reach out and help others is imprinted into our spiritual DNA. May we all tap into this ability and merit the light of the geulah speedily in our days.

O H W ES R A C When the pain becomes unbearable
When the rounds of chemo seem endless When the nausea overtakes you
SHLOME CARED “TATTY, DON’T FORGET ME, PLEASE DO SOMETHING TO HELP OTHERS WHO SUFFER ALONE.” Those were your words, my son, before you died and you were only seventeen. How many tears we have shed over the years remembering the look in your eyes, your pale, almost transparent skin ... my Shlome... how we miss you ... For three years we had waged a bitter battle together. Three years of sleepless nights and frantic days. We got to know all the doctors who are worth anything anywhere in the U.S. We became experts in all the procedures and got to know all the pros and cons. You fought with incredible courage and, upon realizing the end was near, you decided to win the battle. Instead of succumbing in defeat, you asked us to make this battle a victory by having it bring joy and assistance to others. Instead of making this harrowing experience a blow, we'll just let it be a shining cornerstone of solace and mercy for others. Instead of letting the memory of a dear, beloved child, so full of life and kindness, fade like a sepia photo, we decided to make it last forever as a bastion of strength and true Chessed. We did it and we named it after you, Zichron Shlome Refuah Fund. Today, Zichron Shlome Refuah Fund is one of the largest and most active organizations for cancer stricken people and their families. Today, Zichron Shlome lets countless families know and feel that they are not alone. We have given away hundreds of thousands of dollars to desperate families. We helped pay doctor bills, hospital bills, insurance co-payments, wigs, airfare, transportation, rent, utilities, getaways and more. We pay for homemakers to enable the children to stay at home while their parents are coping with the sick. No, Shlome, we haven't forgotten you and we never will. We did more than that. We made sure that your memory will keep on living by giving others the gift of life and love, just the way you wanted it. We made sure that your name lives on! We have spread the word, ”Nobody Should Ever Suffer Alone.” When one family is experiencing hardships, we all share the pain. Zichron Shlome teaches us that every patient counts, every donor counts, and every donation counts!

IT’S ONE OF THOSE DAYS… LittleOne’s whimpering with an upset stomach, ActiveBoy’s performing his workout on the banister, Preschooler’s barking cough reverberates through the house and BigKid’s conked out on the sofa with yet another virus. And you’re wondering how you’ll get through the day in your overtired state. You’ve had enough. You grab your ever-expanding list for the health-food store and run out, promising your kids that you’ll finally be buying the relief they need. You pace down the alphabetized aisles and easily spot everything you need — according to the recommendations of friends, nutritionists and of course — Bubby. You realize you forgot to ask around regarding supplements for combating your persistent exhaustion. So you ask the salesman, who is happy to point you to some glass bottle he insists “everyone uses.” So

“Our objective isn’t to just give you the vitamins you grab you’re looking for — one of those too; we’re here to give “everyone” can’t be mistaken, can you the results they? You look away as you you’re scribble your signature on the CC pad, deliberately overlooking looking the costs. “If my family will start functioning again,” you for.” soothe your apprehension, “it’ll be all worth it.” But 60 sick-days and $600 later, nothing’s changed — aside from every side effect listed, including dizziness (upon gawking at the bills) and mental confusion (weren’t we supposed to feel better?). Relax, there’s a remedy for that too. But this one actually works. And it comes in the form of an amiable haven of nature by the name of Rise Wellness.
THE ROAD TO HEALTH
S “This has been my life ever since my teenage years,” recounts Yoel Stein of Rise Wellness. “With numerous medical requisites for health food, remedies, as well as supplements — both preventive and clinical — I had my fair share of tries and fails, hopes and disappointments. These experiences afforded me the opportunity to learn and greatly expand my knowledge in the fields of health and natural medicine.” Like many, Yoel’s quest for health was met with countless frustrations. But on the rocky path he treaded, he also took notice of the many others attempting the same bumpy trek. “I had to do something to make this an easier and more honest journey for everyone else. I did lots of research, became learned in health issues, and in my eighteen years in this field, gained profound insight by the experiences of those in the pursuit of health.” Which is why he furthered his research and is expounding his knowledge and experience at this wellness boutique he launched.
A PEEK INTO THE WELLNESS BOUTIQUE
S We all know that medication isn’t a “one size fits all.” But when it comes to supplements, we tend to think of them as universally equal. But since no two people are alike, how can their needs be one and the same? “Rise wasn’t launched as just another health food store.
60 / THE MONSEY VIEW / January 17, 2018 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
We’re here for you as a wellness boutique, to cater to your individual needs. Sure, you can hop into any health-food shop and grab any vitamin off the shelf, but our objective isn’t just to give you the vitamins you’re looking for — we’re here to give you the results you’re looking for.”
BUT IT DOESN’T WORK!
S Most of us have sighed these words in exasperation, whether after months of not seeing results or after having the treated issues crop right back up after discontinuing our supplement regimens. “What am I doing wrong?” you ask yourself time and time again. “In fact, more than half of the customers have this claim,” Yoel says. “They tried everything, but nothing worked. That’s because they fed their body supplements it didn’t need, instead of the specific supplements their body demanded.” This is where the Rise Advisor steps in. “Sometimes it’s as simple as switching brands; one brand may not give you the results you’d get from another brand. I also encourage clients to bring in their blood work when looking for supplements. I take note of the underlying issues and overlooked markers — deficiencies or imbalances — that doctors don’t always point out, for reasons like the levels not (yet) being of clinical importance, or just because there’s no remedy for that issue in the medical field. So although there may not be medication for certain underlying issues, there’s almost always a natural way to combat the issue so you can function at an optimal level. And waiting for an underlying issue to actually reach clinical importance is never a good idea. The sooner you tackle an issue, the easier (and in the long run — cheaper!) it is to relieve it. Here at Rise, we look for the real issues — so that we can offer real solutions.” It’s not for naught that they say, “Early to Rise… makes a person healthy, wealthy and wise!”
PREVENTIVE VS. CLINICAL
S Getting the formula right is one thing. Getting the dosage right is another. “There’s a need for understanding the difference between preventive supplements and clinical supplements. Sometimes it’s a matter of not taking the correct formula, while other times it may simply be a matter of taking incorrect dosages. Taking preventive supplements or dosages when you’re coming down with a virus likely won’t do much. That is why getting the dosage right is one of the key factors in getting the relief you need. “Then there’s the issue of overlapping supplements. We know that vitamin or mineral deficiencies are damaging. But overdoing it can be damaging as well, and surely doesn’t give you the results you’re looking for. And this is an all-too-common occurrence when taking multiple supplements. Which is why we take everything into account and create a personalized regimen, ensuring your body gets what it needs, in the amount it needs.”
S But suppose you really did take the correct supplements at the correct dosages. And still nothing. Is there anything else out there that can really help? Worry not, there is. In his years of research, Yoel didn’t merely research remedies and dosages, but quality also came under his scrutiny. “Most brands,” he admits, “cut costs to heighten profits. Cutting costs is okay, but too often, quality gets c o m - promised. Generally, for preventive supplements, it won’t make much of a difference. But when your body begs for a bit more TLC, these brands just won’t do.” This is where professional brand vitamins make all the difference. “You won’t find this in most health-food stores, because it’s marketed only to licensed profession-
62 / THE MONSEY VIEW / January 17, 2018 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
It’s not for naught that they say, “Early to als. But you will find Rise… makes a it at Rise Wellness. And the qualperson healthy, ity and potency of the wealthy and professional brand supplements far outweigh any wise!” other brand. This stuff works!” RAW ON THE RISE
S Though vitamins and supplements are vital, there’s nothing as beneficial as raw nutrition. Which is why Rise offers freshly squeezed juices as well as freshly baked spelt goods. “You may have seen juice bars before. You may have even tried those. But while freshly squeezed juice may seem as pure as their origins, the heat given off by the juicing blades kills a great deal of the benefits you think you’re getting from the produce. Which is why we use a hydraulic press in the juicing of our fresh fruits and vegetables. So the delicious drink flowing into your bottle retains all the vitamins and minerals as it did in its solid, natural form.” Whether as a refreshing snack, a boost on-the-go or as a multiple-day juice cleanse to reset your body, there’s nothing quite as satisfying to both your discerning taste and equally discerning body. As Dr. Axe says: “If you want to prevent [illness], then eat like you have [illness].”
HAVE YOUR HEALTH — AND YOUR MONEY, TOO
S One of the chief reasons customers return to Rise Wellness time and again is due to their unparalleled pricing, including their price-match guarantee. “Living this lifestyle,” admits Yoel, “I know how basic the need for health is. Supplements aren’t a luxury — and they shouldn’t be. We strive to give our community the health they need — at prices they can afford.” It’s natural for parents to think of their children first, to sacrifice everything — even their own health — for that of their children. But healthy parents make healthy children, and Rise knows that well. So you no longer must choose between paying for your own supplements or those of your children. Take care of yourself, and Rise will do the rest — with a free monthly supply of vitamins for each of your children — for the entire year! It’s easier to build up a child than it is to repair an adult. Rise will build, so you won’t need to repair.
Raise healthy kids with Rise. Rise Wellness is on a mission to encourage children to practice healthy routines. That’s why we’ve made it easy, free and fun!

From Wall to Window Painting a Picture of Light amid Darkness Based on a Lecture by Rabbi Zecharia Wallerstein
As Mr. Lefkowitz began to get on in years, he decided that it would be best if he moved into a nursing home. There he could receive all the assistance he needed and be supervised by doctors and nurses around the clock. Aside from age, Mr. Lefkowitz faced another complication — his inability to walk around freely. Having lost his legs earlier in life due to a disease, he would move from place to place using a wheelchair, yet that did not take away from his optimistic attitude. As a wealthy man in his own right, he was the only gentleman in the nursing facility who had a room to himself, but that was soon to change when the head of the nursing home approached Mr. Lefkowitz with a request. “We have a man who would like to move into our home, yet there are no available rooms at the moment. Would it be possible for him to move in with you for one month?” Lefkowitz, a sweet and considerate man, happily complied. And so, the next day, there was Mr. Friedman situated in the room, across from Mr. Lefkowitz. Wishing to welcome his new roommate, Lefkowitz got into his wheelchair and rolled over to Friedman’s bed. “Hi!” Lefkowitz said with a big smile. “Friedman, you’re my new roommate for a month! It’s going to be great. I can just imagine that we will become best friends.”
66 / THE MONSEY VIEW / January 17, 2018 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
While Lefkowitz was full of joy and excitement, Friedman was just the opposite. A miserable, grizzly old man, he had no interest in talking to Lefkowitz. “Can you please get away from my bed?” shouted Friedman. Getting the message loud and clear, Lefkowitz slowly made his way back to his side of the room. “He just needs a little time,” figured Lefkowitz. “I’m sure he will warm up soon.” Later that night, Lefkowitz heard the sound of sobbing. Looking over across the room and seeing Friedman crying, Lefkowitz immediately got into his wheelchair and rolled over to Friedman. “Friedman, what happened? Why are you crying?” “Please get away from me!” said Friedman. “Can’t you tell what my problem is?” Unsure what Friedman was referring to, Lefkowitz just sat there in silence. “I’m blind!” said Friedman, “and I don’t want to hear your stories. Please don’t come over to me and act like you’re the happiest man alive. Five years ago, I lost my eyesight, and since then I haven’t been able to see my children and grandchildren. Just do me a favor. Let me just live as I am in my dark world.” Lefkowitz, listening to Friedman’s story, was left in a total state of shock. Rolling back toward his bed, all Lefkowitz could think about was what he could do for Friedman. Within a few minutes, there was Lefkowitz back at the bedside of Friedman. “Friedman!” called out Lefkowitz, “I have an idea in mind. You are blind, and I have no legs. In a couple
weeks from now, when we will be good friends, you know what we can do? You can place me on your shoulders and we will go all around the nursing home cheering people up. I will be your eyes and you will be my feet. We will be the funniest pair in this entire facility.” Not receiving any response from Friedman, Lefkowitz continued. “But if you are not in the mood for that right now, I’ll tell you something else. I have been an artist my whole life and have a keen perception for detail. So let me do you a favor. I will go over to the window every day and be your eyes. Whatever I see outside, I will describe to you. We’ll try it out for two days. If afterward you no longer want me to describe the outside view to you, I will immediately stop. Just give it a little bit of time.” To Lefkowitz’s delight, Friedman agreed to the plan. The next morning, at 5:30 a.m., Lefkowitz woke up and called out to Friedman. “Sunrise, sunrise…! It’s pretty dark out there, but I see a little pink… Just off to the north, there is a large cloud… and there is a man walking a dog…” Describing in vivid detail everything he saw, Lefkowitz covered the entire panoramic view from the woman holding the umbrella, to the fire hydrant, to the trees, benches and children playing in the park. This continued for some time that day, as well as the following day. And then for a third day, and then a week and then a month. Friedman was absolutely mesmerized by Lefkowitz’s descriptions and began to slowly but surely take a liking to him. Sure enough, within a short while, Friedman and Lefkowitz were best friends and remained roommates way after the first month was up. And there they were. Running up and down the halls of the nursing home cheering up everyone they came across, and besides for having a great time themselves, everyone else was too. This went on for a year, with Lefkowitz talking about the snowflakes, the changing color of the leaves and everything else in between. Friedman could not get enough of Lefkowitz’s optimism and beautiful depiction of the world he saw. One morning, Friedman called over Lefkowitz. “Lefki,” he said, “for my whole life until five years ago, I was able to see like everyone else. But I have to tell you something. I never saw a sunrise in my whole life, I never looked so closely at a snowflake and I never appreciated the beauty of a tree blooming in the spring. Being blind in this room with you, I have seen more than I did when

I had my eyesight. I would just like to thank you.” Listening to the kind words of Friedman, Lefkowitz let out a smile. As could be imagined, Friedman’s mood by now had entirely changed, and the friendship he enjoyed with Lefkowitz was cherished above all else. One morning, Friedman awoke slightly later than usual. Having a feeling that he had overslept and wondering why Lefkowitz had not woken him up earlier, he called out across the room, “Lefki, where are you? It’s late. Did you oversleep?” But there was no response. Panicking, Friedman called over the nurse. “Nurse, where’s Lefkowitz?” “I am very sorry to tell you, Mr. Friedman,” the nurse said, “but Mr. Lefkowitz passed away last night. He had a heart attack in the middle of the night while you were sleeping, and we did not want to wake you. We rushed him to the hospital, where he passed away.” Friedman could not believe his ears. “The funeral is today,” continued the nurse, “at 11 o’clock.” “What time is it now?” panicked Friedman. “I must go to his funeral!” “It is 9:30,” said the nurse. “If you would like, we can make arrangements for you to attend.” Friedman remained in bed, shocked, but still had one more request to make before the nurse left the room. “Nurse, could you please do me a favor? In memory of my friend Lefki, can you go over to the window and describe what you see outside? Is it raining? Are there clouds? Lefki used to do this for me every morning. If you could please do me this favor and just let me know what is going on.” Standing there a bit confused, the nurse said, “I’m sorry, but what exactly would you like me to do?” “You know,” repeated Friedman, “go over to the window and describe what you see.” The nurse looked back at Mr. Friedman with a blank stare. “Mr. Friedman, I am very sorry, but there is no window in this room.” Friedman was confused. “What do you mean?” he asked. “Don’t play around with me. There’s no way that can be true! Every morning, Lefkowitz would tell me in such great detail everything that was going on!” Asking the nurse to help him out of bed, Friedman proceeded to inch his way toward Lefkowitz’s bed and began touching the wall all around in search of a window. But he could not find one anywhere.

And then Friedman realized what Lefkowitz had been doing. “I cannot believe it,” he said. “For an entire year, Lefkowitz stood by a wall and pretended it was a window. He was describing such spectacular sights when all he was doing was looking at a wall!” Friedman could not believe that this was true, but it was. At the funeral of Mr. Lefkowitz, Friedman asked if he could say a few words. “If the Jewish Nation knew who Mr. Lefkowitz was, this would be a funeral similar to the funeral of the greatest of leaders,” he said. “And that is because my dear friend, Mr. Lefkowitz, did something for me that no one can imagine. Every single day for the past year, he would sit in front of a wall and turn it into a window. He would share a world with me that even when I could see, I didn’t see. He would describe the beauty of the world and open a window that didn’t exist. I will forever be grateful and indebted to him. He not only turned the physical wall in front of me into a window; he turned my life, which was a wall, into a window.” Every single Jew holds the capability of taking somebody else’s wall and making it a window. We can take the wall of one who is undergoing a challenging time and create a window full of breathtaking color and opportunity. We can become the artists who add color to the dark life of a fellow Jew who is distant from Hashem, depressed or grumpy, and enlighten their world to the true beauty of life and its endless potential. And even if we ourselves do not have our own window, but struggle with our own problems and have our own wall to deal with, we can take that wall, which we, along with so many others, stare into, and turn it into a window of beauty, of opportunity and of meaning. Rabbi Zecharia Wallerstein is the founder of Ohr Yitzchak, Ateres Naava Seminary for Girls and Ohr Naava Women’s Institute in Brooklyn, N.Y. Ohr Naava is a unique program designed for women ages 17 through 120 who are interested in furthering their Torah experience. The program, under the leadership of Rabbi Zecharia Wallerstein, started out as a Wednesday evening class in a small classroom known as a “Chabura.” It brought together girls who had just returned from studying in Israel, college students who needed a weekly moment of inspiration, and most of all, Jews of different backgrounds with one common goal: to grow and change. The signature of Ohr Naava is to provide a multitude of programs, absolutely free of charge, for women wishing to make the time to grow, change and further their Torah knowledge.

Area Hospitals Unaffected by Nationwide Shortage of IV Bags, Say Officials LOCAL HOSPITALS say that they are not experiencing any serious problems despite a nationwide shortage of intravenous saline solutions caused by the particularly difficult hurricane season combined with this winter’s severe flu outbreak. Baxter International, a major supplier of IV saline solutions, sustained major damage at its three manufacturing plants located in Puerto Rico. FiercePharma reported that the Food and Drug Administration intervened in November, getting the Baxter plants bumped to the top of the list to have electrical power restored after Puerto Rico’s electrical grid was decimated by Hurricane Irma in October. According to The Journal News, this year’s flu season has been intense, with an 86 percent increase during the last week of December in the number of people hospitalized due to the virus, but both Good Samaritan Hospital and Nyack Hospital are reporting that patient care has not been affected by the diminished supply of IV bags. “The national shortage has had
no impact on patient care at Good Samaritan Hospital or any of the facilities in our ten-hospital network,” said Helene Guss, director of communications for the Westchester Medical Center Health Network, which includes the Suffern facility. IV bags have been in short supply at Nyack Hospital where medical staff has resorted to using alternative methods to administer medications, which include using larger IV bags so that fewer bags are required or
giving certain medications via injections instead of through IV bags. With all of Baxter’s facilities now up and running after being reconnected to the electrical grid, the shortage is expected to improve shortly. The FDA has also given two more companies its approval to sell the bags and is allowing Baxter to temporarily import sterile fluids from overseas factories in order to increase the diminished supply of IV bags.
Police Drones: Coming Soon to Skies Near You YOU MIGHT BE USED to looking in your rearview mirror for state troopers, but the New York State Police will be launching its first aerial drones this month in order to enhance public safety and assist in natural disaster response. The State Police Unmanned Aerial System program was announced last week by Governor Andrew Cuomo and will encompass four areas served by the state police, including Troop F which is based in Middle-
72 / THE MONSEY VIEW / January 17, 2018 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
town and covers Rockland, Orange, Sullivan, Ulster and Green Counties. According to the governor, 14 more drones will be deployed by April and will be used for law enforcement and public safety missions, with faster response times and the ability to navigate dangerous situations better than their manned counterparts. They will also be used to document and reconstruct serious automobile accidents, which will get roads opened faster, benefiting mo-
torists. Officers who operate the drones will be required to undergo 32 hours of hands-on training and will be FAA certified. “This state-of-the-art technology will improve emergency response, improve operational and cost efficiencies and increase trooper safety,” said Cuomo. “We will continue to implement innovative technologies to improve our ability to protect New Yorkers across this great state.”

The classic apple, pretzels and chips are the most common snacks that get stuffed into briefcases daily. But which kid doesn’t enjoy a change, especially one that is loaded with Mommy’s love? I have memories of a dear friend and classmate who used to come to school daily with what appeared to us as a bag of at least six fresh chocolate cupcakes, which she’d generously share — and she was one of six siblings or more who received the same snack lovingly prepared by their mother in the wee hours of the morning. You, too, can make wonderful, warm memories.

FRESHLY POPPED POPCORN Down to the very last kernel As kids, our most common take-along snack was popcorn. We’d enjoy to hear the popping sound as we sat around the breakfast table, and would later feel Mommy’s love as we munched and shared the abundance during recess time. Popcorn pops best in a heavybottomed pot. I use an 8-quart Farberware pot. And never leave the kitchen while making popcorn. Trust me, I’ve had my experiences of a smoky kitchen and burned pots.
INGREDIENTS: ⅓ cup oil 1¼ cup popcorn seeds
DIRECTIONS: 1. Heat empty pot on high heat. 2. Add oil and 3 to 4 popcorn kernels.
#1 SALTY Salt to taste with a fine-consistency salt, such as Diamond Crystal fine salt.
#2 SPICEY 3 T. fine salt 1½ T. sugar 2 T. paprika ½ tsp. cayenne pepper
#3 SWEET AND SALTY
½ tsp. white pepper
2½ tsp. salt
1 tsp. cornstarch
3 T. sugar
Combine all ingredients in a spice jar and sprinkle over popcorn as desired.
Combine and pour over popcorn.
3. Wait to hear the kernels pop after approximately a minute to a minute and a half. 4. Add the rest of the seeds and cover the lid tightly. 5. Allow kernels to pop until you no longer hear the steady popping sound. 6. Remove pot from flame immediately, and transfer to a large bowl or large brown paper bag. 7. Season with seasoning of your choice.

CHOCOLATE GRANOLA STICKS INGREDIENTS: 1 cup oil 2 cups brown sugar 1¼ cups honey 2 T. vanilla sugar 4 eggs 2 cups flour
Wholesome, delicious and chock-full of goodness, this makes for an especially appropriate snack for those who tend to skip breakfast. Not all children like the slightly bitter taste of sunflower seeds. You can replace them with an extra half cup of chopped nuts.
3 T. cocoa 1 tsp. baking powder 2 tsp. cinnamon ¼ tsp. salt 2½ cups oats 1½ cups rice krispies 1 cup craisins ½ cup chopped nuts 1 cup chocolate chips ¼ cup sesame seeds 1 cup shredded coconut ½ cup sunflower seeds
DIRECTIONS: 1. Preheat oven to 350°. 2. Mix oil, sugars and honey on high speed until well combined. 3. Add eggs and mix. Lower speed of mixer and add flour, cocoa, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. 4. Add the rest of the ingredients, mixing until evenly distributed. 5. Spread batter on lined cookie sheet and bake 45 to 50 minutes. 6. Allow to cool and cut into bars of desired size.

CEREAL TRAIL MIX Treat your children to a wholesome snacking experience. The baking adds crispness to the cereals, giving them a fresh and crunchy flavor. If your family enjoys falafel flavor, sprinkle on some cumin after baking. Do not attempt to bake all ingredients in one pan. That was my first try, and the wheat squares soaked up all the oils and spices.
INGREDIENTS: 4 cups Taanug Wheat Squares 4 cups Arrowhead Mills Puffed Corn 1 5-ounce package BB Thin Whole-Wheat Pretzel Sticks 4 ounces oil 2½ tsp. salt ½ tsp. black pepper 1 tsp. paprika 4 cloves garlic, quartered, or garlic powder
DIRECTIONS: 1. Preheat oven to 300°. 2. Mix oil with spices and garlic. 3. Place wheat squares in a 9x13 pan. Puffed corn and pretzels should be placed in a separate 9x13 pan. 4. Pour less than half of the oil mixture onto the wheat squares and mix. 5. Pour the remaining oil mixture over the pretzels and puffed corns. 6. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring every ten minutes 7. Mix contents of both pans together, and enjoy!

Have you ever found yourself spending too much time in the snack aisle in search of snacks that are at least somewhat healthy, perusing their labels intently in an attempt to decode which of the hundreds of packages will pass your basically-healthy-snack test? With every other snack bag boasting phrases like “baked, not fried,” “multigrain” or “low-fat,” you’re still left with endless options and are no closer to any real clarity. You may have found yourself muttering “never mind” and hopelessly filling your cart with whichever snacks were most readily available. Finding healthy snack options can indeed be stressful. The key answer here lies in the ingredients, not in the labels. For example, a bag of potato chips, containing just potatoes, oil and salt, may be a healthier option than hot-and-spicy multigrain chips with a jaw-breaking ingredient list practically as long as the bag itself. And when in doubt, consider snacks containing hard-to-pronounce ingredients your foes. Except quinoa; quinoa’s your friend. To spare you the time, I strolled down the snack aisle and went through each of the common snacks, one by one, comparing their ingredients and filtering them down to a list of what I’ll call “least unhealthy snack options” priced within the modest budget. Of course, snacks like fruits, nuts (when possible) and home-baked granola bars are healthier options. But that isn’t always feasible. So go ahead and stock that snack box at home, and leave your unease back on the grocery shelves.
POPCORN A classic snack, popcorn satiates the crunch crave in a healthy way. Having been dubbed “the only 100% whole-grain snack,” popcorn’s benefits exceed those of most classic snacks. With just popcorn kernels, oil and salt, its ingredient list easily outranks the others! Though it may be higher in sodium, it also contains more fiber than most chips — a noteworthy benefit. Though flavored chips are generally not recommended, the Sunrise brand offers all-natural spiced popcorn, so go ahead and munch on barbeque and onion-garlic goodness guilt-free!
CORN CHIPS AND TORTILLA CHIPS Unflavored corn chips and tortilla chips also top the list with their mere three ingredients: corn, oil and salt. Although these chips don’t provide large amounts of any one vitamin, they still offer a decent amount of phosphorus and magnesium, both of which are essential trace minerals. With 19 grams of carbohydrates appearing high, corn chips in fact has a low glycemic index of 42, which means it won’t spike your sugar levels, but rather result in slowreleased energy to take you through the day.
88 / THE MONSEY VIEW / January 17, 2018 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
SOY CHIPS Soy chips scored high on this list with its short and simple ingredient list, as well as its benefits. Unflavored, it contains just four ingredients: soy flour, rice pieces, oil and salt. Soy chips is a great source of protein â€” at seven grams! â€” making for a great energy-boosting snack with fuel to last through a good chunk of the day. Additionally, its 10 percent daily value of iron, 9 percent fiber and significant amounts of folic acid and calcium make soy chips a rather beneficial munch!

Crunching Down Some Snacking Myths MULTIGRAIN SNACKS ARE HEALTHIER FOR YOU. It’s whole grain you should be looking for, not multigrain. Though they may seem nearly identical, they suggest very different things. Multigrain simply implies that it includes more than one grain, like rice, corn and wheat, for example. On the other hand, whole grain implies that the grain is in its wholegrain form, like whole-wheat bread, whole-grain rice, etc. Whole grains provide many nutritional benefits and make for a wonderful food choice.
SWEET POTATOES ARE HEALTHIER THAN POTATOES. Contrary to popular belief, sweet potatoes aren’t the “whole-grain” version of potatoes. There sure are many healthful properties in sweet potatoes, but it isn’t necessarily a super-food. And its shunned counterpart, the “regular” potato, in fact, has nutritional benefits too, with higher contents of several vitamins and minerals compared to the glorified sweet potato! So here too, opt for the one with healthier ingredients rather than turning a blind eye for the sake of eating sweet potatoes. A bit of both, rather than a lot of just one, is what makes for a balanced diet.
BAKED CHIPS ARE HEALTHIER THAN FRIED. Though we may wish to believe so, commercial factories don’t bake their snacks like we bake ours in our little kitchens. Manufacturers are here to make their snacks taste good — and they’ll do whatever it takes to achieve that perfection, oftentimes with additives that aren’t necessary with traditional fried snacks. Baking may also result in compromised health properties. For example, baked potato chips contain less vitamin C, have a considerably higher sodium content, and may also contain high amounts of acrylamide compared to traditional fried potato chips. Acrylamide, a cancercausing chemical, forms when high-carb foods (like potatoes) are heated at high temperatures.* And since frying requires less heating time, the fried chip comes out the least affected. So although baked chips may save you some calories and fat, you’ll still be chomping down on some less pleasant alternatives. It all boils down to portion control. Mindless munching on a family-sized bag of multigrain or whole-grain, sweet potato or white potato, baked or fried chips easily piles on unhealthy amounts of calories, fat and those impossible-to-pronounce foes. *Source: cancer.gov

HONEY BRAIDED PRETZEL TWISTS A twist on the standard pretzels, honey braided pretzels make for a more appealing choice. The ingredients are: enriched wheat/whole-wheat flour, sugar, brown sugar, vegetable oil, honey, salt and yeast. This makes for a filling snack and provides a host of other benefits, like four grams of protein, two grams of fiber, 15 percent daily value of iron and impressive amounts of minerals, including thiamin, niacin, riboflavin and folate.
GOLDEN FLUFF WHOLE-GRAIN NOM NOMS AND ANIMAL CRACKERS I listed them together since their ingredient lists and nutrition facts are nearly identical. Of the countless cookie options compared, these two were winners. With simple ingredients and fairly healthful advantages, these are fun and appealing options for kids. Though their basic ingredient lists may be longer, they’re still quite simple compared to the other cookies. Their ingredients are: whole-wheat flour, bleached and enriched flour, sugar, oil, invert sugar, brown sugar, natural flavor, soy lecithin, leavening, salt, dextrose, egg whites and flavors or chocolate chips according to flavor. The wholegrain benefits make these a sweet choice for the sweet tooth.
January 17, 2018 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 91 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
POTATO CHIPS Though the potato chip has gotten a bad rap, it actually found its place on this list! With just three ingredients — potatoes, oil and salt, its ingredients are of the simplest in the chips basket! Its offshoots, potato sticks and/or fries, have identical ingredient lists and nearly identical nutrition facts and may be healthier since they take longer to consume, resulting in a greater sense of fullness, as well as easier digestion. Potato chips are also on the lower range in sodium content versus many other chips, averaging at only 110 milligram (five percent daily value) per serving.
VEGGIE STRAWS AKA FLUTES This potato veggie medley is a good option for when kids are looking for a “colorful” snack. You may have expected this snack to top our list because — vegetables! But the truth is that the paltry amounts of actual vegetables thrown in is pretty insignificant, less than the amount of salt in the chips! Let’s think of the vegetables rather as healthy food coloring, which is pretty much the purpose it serves in these. So we’re evaluating this as a potato snack, with its ingredient list reading: potato starch, potato flour, oil, salt, dehydrated vegetables, cane sugar and turmeric (a very healthy spice, in fact!). Veggie straws offers impressive amounts of calcium (10 percent daily value), potassium (12 percent) and small amounts of vitamin D. So although this may not have been what you expected of a veggie snack, veggie straws still make for a fairly wholesome snack.
POTATO POPPERS This has found itself lower on the list compared to potato chips because of its less basic ingredients. Whereas potato chips are just potatoes, oil and salt, potato poppers contain: potato flakes, potato pieces, potato starch, oil, soy flour, malic acid and salt. It still has earned its “least-unhealthy snack option” name by containing no significantly harmful ingredients. Although its ingredient list may be more complex than that of potato chips, it does contain reduced amounts of fat, at two and a half grams per serving, versus the 10 grams per serving of potato chips. There are some brands, like Landau’s, who offer all-natural spiced versions.
CORN POPS This melt-in-your-mouth snack also earned its place on our list by merit of its containing merely three ingredients: corn meal, vegetable oil and salt. It doesn’t provide significant amounts of any vitamins or minerals, but you do get the benefit of sparing your body the harmful junk of most other snacks. So long as you stick to the unflavored varieties, of course.

They say kids will be kids, but we can skip the cliche and say that kids have always been kids! The classic games you played were the same your parents and grandparents played, and many date back hundreds or even thousands of years. They seem to have passed from one generation to the next practically by osmosis, regardless of century and continent, because do you remember having been taught these games? Neither do I! They simply exist as part of childhood, as surely as scuffed shoes and missing teeth. Hide-and-Seek This classic can be played in any place, indoors and out, and with any number of players. It starts with whoever is “It” trying very hard not to peek while the other players scatter. And so the count begins: “One, two, three…!” This game has many versions and is a go-to activity for children the world over. In the basic version, the seeker tries to find all hidden players, and the first to be found is the next round’s seeker. In another version, the players try to reach safe “home base” before being found, and in yet another version, the players found join the seeker in finding the remaining players. In another adaption, there is one hider who then gets joined by each seeker who finds him. The equivalent of this game was first recorded by Greek writer Julius Pollux almost two thousand years ago, but it seems as though it has evolved into a modern version in Greece as well.

Blindman’s Buff While we may have played Marco Polo, a variant of blindman’s buff, who doesn’t remember the thrill of being led around, blindfolded, until even the most familiar of areas turns into a space full of all sorts of obstacles and unknown corners? Like hide-and-seek, records of Blindman’s Buff date back to approximately 2,000 years ago in Greece. This game is also played all over the world and is known in each country by a different name. In Europe, especially, the names vary almost comically: In Italy it is known as mosca cieca (blind fly), in
An illustration in a 1912 Chinese elementary student’s schoolbook
Germany as blindekug (blind cow), in Sweden as blindbock (blind buck) and in Spain as gallina ciega (blind hen). Marco Polo is a game similar to blindman’s buff, but is most commonly played in a pool. The great explorer Marco Polo grew up in Venice, which may explain the game’s association with water. Hopscotch When the sun comes out in the summer, so does the chalk, and soon sidewalks and driveways are full of hopscotch courts — at least until the next rainfall. This game was first known to English speakers as “scotch-hop” or “scotch-hoppers” for the children who would “hop” over the “scotch,” which means an incised line or scratch. Mention of scotch-hop was recorded as early as the seventeenth century in both one edition of Poor Robin’s Almanack and in a manuscript of Book of Games. While this game was actually first played in what is now the United Kingdom, it was created by Romans based in Britain during the era of the Roman Empire. The original hopscotch courts were over 100

feet long and were used for military exercises by foot-soldiers training in full armor! Roman children, watching the military train, would draw their own, smaller courts, and so the game spread throughout Europe and beyond. Some versions of hopscotch have “London” written in the last square to represent the very end of the Great North Road, a 400mile road from Glasgow to London the Roman military used. Jumping Games Jump rope, used as a fitness tool or game, dates back a few thousand years to when Egyptians used vines for jumping. Some researchers have also found records of jump roping in ancient China, but the jump rope we play is probably based on the Egyptian version, which spread through Europe, all the way up to the Netherlands. In North America, jump rope was then introduced by these early Dutch settlers, which is probably why one of the most common jump rope games is called “double Dutch.” Jump rope is as popular now as it was centuries ago, and for inner-city children in the mid-1900s especially, jump rope was the game of choice because anyone could find a rope to play with. Chinese jump rope, which can be traced back to the seventh century, is a combination of string games, hopscotch and jump rope. It took until the mid- to late-1900s for the game to spread to other countries, and today it is a popular favorite of children the world over. Ball From the tiny squash ball to the full-size basketball, the world of sports played with a ball (or two) is huge. Whether played pro (think baseball, football, basketball or volleyball) or in our own backyards (think monkey-in-the-middle, elimination, dodgeball or machanayim) many outdoor sports involve balls, and it seems to have been this way for centuries • THE GREEKS Here again the credit goes to Greek writer Julius Pollux for mentioning ball games in his works, but not many details remain regarding rules and methods of play. Apparently, the Greeks, in line with the gymnasiums and sports they’re known for, viewed playing ball as a less intense physical exercise and activity, and that’s why it was usually the children who played these games. Records mention putting the ball on the ground, tossing it in the air and some sort of game that involved feinting. A game Pollux describes in greater detail most closely resembles football played today. • THE ROMANS According to researchers, there were three types of balls ancient Romans played with. There was the pila, their smallestsized ball used for simple tossing and catching; the paganica, a heavy feather-filled ball; and finally the follis, a large ball filled with air that was played by players wearing gauntlets, a heavy glove used to strike the ball.

STAMPS Something that never quite goes out of style, a stamp collections is a conglomeration of used and new, colorful designs and antiquelooking ones. Deep down in our young imaginations, each of us had this dream that one day we would find a rare stamp, and our collection would not only be a fun pastime, but actually our ticket to the world of the rich. Who knows, maybe there is something worthwhile tucked into my album? It’s in my basement storage still, the one collection I never parted with in the quiet hope that maybe there’s something there not worth getting rid of.
SANDYLION STICKERS These sheets of three squares of the most fun stickers sets with perforated lines for trading and sharing, were a very important part of our elementary
Remember those pads, which we’d delightfully trade, that came in various shapes, vivid colors and schoolish designs? The crayon box, the apples in different colors, the school bus with the smiling student faces and the trademark blackboard are some designs that sparked my imagination — and now, my memory. And when the teacher had a sign on the wall to match, there was just nothing more exciting than that. Available in sets of large and small, those were the cutest things ever created. There’s just one unsolved mystery: How many small papers have the value of one big one?
Although this favorite kitten had her more popular seasons, it’s one of those timeless brands that are never quite fully out of style. I do recall, though, the times when trading

“Class dismissed!” The recess bell would ring, and out would come our snacks, the jump ropes — and our albums. Some years it was more “in” and other years less so, but an integral part of recess time throughout our school years was most definitely our albums and our shoe boxes holding that year’s fads. We’d delightfully barter our goods as we weighed and considered while amassing colored little papers and stickers and knick-knacks of delight. Enjoy this trip down memory lane as we explore the items students collected over the past 20 years or so.
school years. And fun attributes only brought up the value. Did you have a “feely” sheet, one that had scented stickers or were yours glittery? You probably were able to get two of the standard kind for just one of those. If you were even contemplating parting with them, that is. And every basic collection included the birthday cake set!
stationery sets — envelopes, small and large papers and all — was all the rage. Personally, my most cherished stationery set was the one that gave off a strawberry or orange scent when scratched.
HI BEARY Capturing the minds of children everywhere who filled up albums with this delightful character, this cute little bear was on paper and envelope sets, and also on different notepads. The minis came in round, triangular, and also in rectangular wedged pads with papers that got bigger and bigger. (A sheet from the back of the book was all that more valuable than a front one for savvy traders everywhere.) My sister fondly recalls having her eyes on a particular set in my album, one of Hi Beary leisurely swinging outside. I should’ve let her have it all those years ago. Had I done so, I would probably still be her favorite sister today!
LISA FRANK Colorful rainbows of fun followed us everywhere for a while on stickers, pencils, pens and notepads. While I was personally past the stage of collecting those myself, I was a pretty frequent buyer of Lisa Frank stationery. How else would I convince my nieces to stay in bed while on babysitting duty?
January 17, 2018 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 105 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
Another standard collection that has been in students’ pencil cases every few years, these came in the most intricate and fun shapes as well as in intriguing multi-piece ones. (I’m remembering a particular fruit set, a proper puzzle and a cell phone, but the variety was endless!)
At one point, stationery took backstage and napkins entered the trading scene. Oh, what a colorful world of options and what fun this col-
Girls everywhere wanted to collect each of these numbered sheets featuring a set of dark-haired dolls alongside products or places. I remember a fruit/vegetable category in particular where each pad of sheets had the dolls standing beside a pepper, eggplant, orange and so on. Oh, the thrill of a new pad, especially when it came from a box of yet-unseen designs!
The doctor’s office became everyone’s favorite destination when it meant adding another few stickers to a growing collection. And suddenly the doctor’s secret was out, and rolls of these
PRECIOUS PRINCESS Following the order of the alphabet, Precious Princess showcased items, along with their names, next to a golden-haired doll. In fact, a first-grade teacher found that her girls were picking up certain words way above their grade level. Just goes to show that information presented the right way is the best form of learning.

lection was. It kept us on the lookout at the dollar shop, at the party shop and at basically any kind of shop. And at simchos, too, when nobody was looking. (No wonder the baal simcha never had enough napkins to go around.) Coming in an endless array of designs and prints, in brands and with characters, the selection was a feast for the eyes.
delightful stickers with different fun attributes (Pieces! Scented! Sparkly!) appeared in homes everywhere to be frantically traded.
CLOTHING TAGS Baby clothes and designer wear come with some beautiful tags, and why just discard them if the girls were so excited to hoard them, admire them and trade them with their friends? This free and fun collection didn’t last long, but it sure was a convenient idea while it did!
SILLY BANDZ Originally invented by a Japanese designer who designed shaped rubber bands to discourage people from throwing them away, these bracelets came in many interesting shapes and themes (some unidentifiable or requiring a very vivid imagination), and the kids couldn’t get enough of them.
THE TRENDS MAY HAVE BEEN FLEETING, BUT THE MEMORIES THEY CREATED ARE EVERLASTING.

MENTION OF THE WORD EPIDEMIC raises fear and elicits anxious responses in even the most calm and collected. However, in this day and age, bullying of children is unquestionably an epidemic. Defined as “willfully and repeatedly causing harm to others through verbal or physical assault or through social exclusion,” bullying is rampant within American schools, both public and private. According to the Journal of School Health, about one in every five students in the U.S. is bullied each year. Further, data from the National Education Survey indicate that 160,000 children stay home each day from school for fear of being bullied. Were any medical issue to affect one in five children and cause that much absence from school, there is no question that it would be a top priority on both the media’s and the authorities’ agendas. Perhaps we don’t attend to bullying because we ourselves (as adults) are unprepared and ill-equipped to handle this problem for sheer lack of knowledge of how to respond. Bullying evokes strong feelings in both us and our children, and navigating this tough terrain is not always simple. Here are a few clear and simple steps we can take to tackle the bullying epidemic. The first step is to recognize the problem. To this end, some children are open about their thoughts and feelings. They are the ones who come home and relate the events of their day — about the projects they made in school, the things they learned and the interactions they had. When such children are bullied they will usually come home in tears and relate instances of being picked on or excluded. However, many children are not as forthcoming with their emotions and experiences. These children may not be as open about being bullied, and their feelings may not be as apparent. Instead, their reactions may manifest in not wanting to go to school, behavioral problems, having trouble sleeping or eating or displaying general signs of moodiness. Note that not all children with these tendencies are being bullied, but when these behaviors occur, it’s important to have a conversation to gain more information and get a sense of how things are going at school. Now, if parents believe that their child is being bullied, what should they do? Well, some parents who were bullied themselves may recall being coached to fight back and may have been encouraged to match bullying with physical aggression. Others may have had the opposite experience of their own parents shrugging off their experiences by saying “kids will be kids.” These reactions may influence the way parents respond to their own children being bullied and may not be effective in helping
children cope with the experience or helping them avoid it in the future. Instead, psychological science shows that the following five steps are the first place to start: 1.
VALIDATE! It’s essential to convey to children that their feelings about being bullied are valid and worthy of respect. This helps to create open communication so that children feel safe telling their parents when there is something wrong. As discussed, many children do not naturally open up to their parents about being bullied, and creating a safe, open and nonjudgmental space for children to share is crucial.
2. ENCOURAGE children to carry themselves confidently to avoid being an easy target for bullies. Encourage them to make eye-contact and walk with their head up, even when they are not feeling confident. 3. At home, use ROLE-PLAY to practice ways of confronting and responding to a bully. Help your child practice what he/ she will say using a strong, firm voice, or by simply ignoring and walking away. Practice not using comebacks, putdowns, insults or physical aggression. Make a list of possible responses and practice those together. 4. When a child is being bullied, COLLABORATE with teachers to make them aware of the issue. When calling the school, avoid blaming them or being confrontational. Instead, find the common ground of wanting to help your child and gain commitment to working together toward that goal. Use specific examples of bullying incidents,
January 17, 2018 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 111 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
and avoid making assumptions or judgments. Also, be prepared to learn that your child may have had some share in causing the interaction as well. 5. Find creative ways to RESTORE AND MAINTAIN children’s self-confidence outside of school. Encourage them to pursue interests and talents, and help them feel a sense of mastery. Let them know they are not to blame for being bullied, and praise them for responding effectively when provoked. Taking the above proactive approach to bullying has been proven to be more effective than the reactive responses of the past. It not only helps children avoid being bullied, but also teaches new skills that can be generalized and used for conflicts later in life as well. Most importantly, these strategies address the underlying attack against a child’s self-esteem that bullying represents, which is an essential life lesson. Bullying is an epidemic like any other. The good news is that there are symptoms, warning signs and methods of treatment. Having the knowledge of how to protect our children and guide them in navigating this experience will aid them in maintaining their self-esteem while staying healthy, happy and safe.

Miss Lucy had a baby. She named him Tiny Tim. She put him in the bathtub to see if he could swim. He drank up all the water. He ate up all the soap. He tried to eat the bathtub, but it wouldn’t go down his throat. Miss Lucy called the doctor. The doctor called the nurse. The nurse called the lady with the alligator purse. In walked the doctor. In walked the nurse. In walked the lady with the alligator purse. “Measles” said the doctor. “Mumps” said the nurse. “Nothing” said the lady with the alligator purse. A dollar charged the doctor. Fifty cents charged the nurse. Nothing charged the lady with the alligator purse. Out walked the doctor. Out walked the nurse. Out walked the lady with the alligator purse. In the original, the doctor didn’t call for an operation, but in the one I used to sing with my friends, he did — and the nurse and the lady in the alligator purse echoed him!

Getting Ready for the Job “Hi. I was wondering if you can help me with a resume?” “Sure! How can I help?” Yitzy launched into his story, explaining that he was working as a junior warehouse manager in his uncle’s business, but had to look for another job since the business was unable to afford keeping him much longer as it was not doing well. This had been his first job, which he had been at since his wedding five years before. He was now a father and quickly needed something new. I asked what kind of job he would be looking for. “Anything,” was the answer. He would be okay with a similar job in another warehouse, but was also open to other kinds of work. Being that this had been Yitzy’s only experience, he had no idea what else he would enjoy. I asked him a few questions about what parts of the job he had liked and
120 / THE MONSEY VIEW / January 17, 2018 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
for someone like him. Having a resume with no one to read it is a waste of time, money and effort. Back to the good old concept of the market, where people don’t sell what isn’t bought. He got back to me with four job listings that interested him in the fields we had discussed. Additionally, he had a few friends who were happy to give a copy of his resume to their bosses who owned sales and warehouse businesses. Great! Now we could get started. We spent a few minutes on the phone going over details, and I got to work. The next day I sent him a completed resume, which we reviewed that afternoon. After a few minor changes (I do tend to make people
disliked. I got the impression that he was a social, outgoing type who could think of the big picture, was very organized and capable and had the skills to be an excellent manager. We discussed a few suggestions about the kinds of jobs that fit his needs, including travel and salary. He decided to look for either a management position in He’s taking the oppora store or warehouse or a sales positions in a heimishe business tunity of losing a job to that would pay a decent base salwork on self-developary. Ideally, he would have liked to get an entry-level job in sales ment and will likely then with the goal of becoming a sales find a better job where manager, which would use his strong skills well and likely have he has more potential. the highest earning potential. I wasn’t ready to get to work on his resume just yet, though. First I sound too good), we had a final copy needed him to make sure that not only ready to go. We discussed how to write was he looking for this kind of job, but a cover letter, and I attached a sample that there were such jobs available format I suggest using.
One more thing I thought would be useful to Yitzy was EQ development. He had a great personality, great skills and was confident and smart. There were a few areas, though, that he had mentioned having a hard time with, which I suspected would only get harder as he moved on. Yitzy did not enjoy dealing with daily issues in the team he had to manage, did not like having to make sure that others took work as seriously as he did and had little patience for other people’s suggestions at work. Luckily, these are all areas that make up a person’s EQ — Emotional Intelligence. The good news is that unlike personality and inborn abilities, this area is what we consider “middos,” which can be improved using specific techniques in the workplace. He was interested in learning more, especially when he heard that people with higher EQ scores tend to make another $20,000 a year compared to people with similar abilities but lower EQ scores. This would be especially helpful in being promoted as a manager, where interpersonal skills are just as important — if not more — than ability. As part of his job preparation, Yitzy is planning to test in EQ and create a plan based on his areas of weakness to give him the best chance to succeed. He’s taking the opportunity of losing a job to work on self-development and will likely then find a better job where he has more potential. Losing a job doesn’t get much better than that!

Growing up, we had two snack boxes: the “special snacks” box, which was reserved for special occasions, and the “simple snacks” box, which was for everyday snack time. By now, most of the “special snacks” made their way into the “simple snacks” box, and the “simple snacks,” well… we rarely see them anymore. It may be hard to believe, but the classic snacks we don’t give a second thought to were once celebrated innovations. Let’s take a moment to look back at these moments in history and celebrate the births of our all-time favorites.
French explorers found popcorn being made by the Iroquois Indians in the Great Lakes regions. It’s believed that Native Americans would throw their corn ears right into the fire in order to pop the kernels in impressive fashion. With the colonists settling in North America, this Native American snack was adopted as a classic American treat. Popcorn wasn’t limited to snacking, but it was also reported to have been eaten with milk and sugar, like a breakfast cereal. Colonists would sometimes add molasses to their popcorn, creating a snack comparable to today’s kettle corn.
Legend has it that potato chips, originally called potato crunches, was invented in 1853 by George Crum. Crum was a chef at the Moon Lake Lodge resort in Saratoga Springs. On one occasion, a customer protested that his fried potatoes were too thick. When Crum made a thinner batch, the customer was still displeased. Exasperated, Crum fried them to a crisp, expecting to irritate the fussy customer. Ironically, the fries were a hit and the potato chip was invented!

TORTILLA CHIPS The triangular tortilla chip was popularized by Rebecca Webb Carranza in an attempt to salvage the misshapen tortillas rejected from the automated tortilla machine that operated at her Mexican deli and tortilla factory in southwest Los Angeles. When Carranza found that the discarded tortillas, cut into triangles and fried, were very much enjoyed, she sold them for a dime a bag at the factory. The tortilla chip turned out to be a favorite, which earned her the Golden Tortilla award in 1994 in recognition of her contribution to the Mexican food industry.
CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
The chocolate chip cookie was invented by American chef Ruth Graves Wakefield with the help of her sous-chef Sue Brides in 1938 when she owned the Toll House Inn in Whitman, Massachusetts. In this era, the Toll House Inn was a popular restaurant that featured home cooking. It is often inaccurately reported that she accidentally developed the cookie, that she expected the chocolate chunks to melt to create chocolate cookies, but in fact she stated that she intentionally invented the cookie. Up until then, chocolate used in desserts was always melted, and she sought something different for her guests. She added chopped-up bits from a semi-sweet chocolate bar into her cookie dough and named the recipe “Toll House Chocolate Crunch Cookies,” as featured in her Toll House Tried and True Recipes cookbook.
It is believed that people of the Middle East were among the first to discover that fresh fruit could be preserved year-round if pureed, cooked and dried. In fact, as early as at the turn of the 20th century, fruit leather was introduced in a small Syrian community in New York City. Though its original name had been amardeen, people referred to it as “shoe leather” because it was as tough as shoe leather. Boy, have we come a long way!

This looks interesting. I wonder what these booklets are.
Dan, did you see the chutzpah of the missionaries?! They’re trying to fool us!
Something’s fishy here. It looks like missionary material.
I’m running to notify the anti-missionary organization.
Anti-Missionary Organization They must deal with this!
Yes, we’ve gotten many calls about the booklets that were distributed. We’re trying to deal with the issue.
I must finish…. Hundreds of homes in Eretz Yisroel got these terrible missionary materials directly in their mailboxes.
Wait, my cell phone is ringing.
Hi. I’m Gavriel from the chocolate factory. Your son Avraham fell and it looks like he broke his leg. I think you should come.
Who is calling him directly during such an important meeting?
Recap: After Avraham falls from the tree, Gavriel is called from the office to help, as he knows first aid.

RIDGE AND KENNEDY DRIVE Spring Valley
Zip code: 10977 Area mileage: 0.23 square mile Overview: Many purchasers of Ridge area properties are developers of multi-family homes, as the zoning works well for this type of construction.

There are currently three homes for sale in the Ridge area at an average price of $495,000. There are also two commercial properties for sale on the market, and many off-market deals in the $550,000 range for twofamily-home properties. There are currently three homes for sale on Kennedy Drive, at an average sale price of $254,000. The cheapest home on the market is priced at $199,000 and the most expensive home is for sale at $289,000.
