Due to a frightening experience I had, I feel it an obligation to bring awareness to the Monsey community. As per New York State law, a new driver may drive a vehicle after passing the written exam, but a licensed driver in the passenger seat is required until after the road test is passed. Other states require that even a licensed driver who is new practice only in a vehicle equipped with an extra stop brake for the driving teacher. When I learned to drive, I at first practiced with just a licensed friend near me. Unfortunately I made an accident, and even though my friend saw me going straight into a tree, without the extra set of brakes he couldn’t avoid the accident. We miraculously came out unharmed, but with great damage to the car and property. For years this has been haunting me, and I’ve always wanted to warn new drivers: “Even if the law might allow it, do not learn to drive with just a friend until you really know what you’re doing!” Still Shaken
DROP THE DIALECT During a recent phone conversation with an acquaintance, she paused to give instructions to her cleaning lady. “She’d understand you without the accent,” I quipped, my light tone belying my opinion of the matter. I wasn’t prepared for the onslaught; as turns out, this friend had plenty opinion of her own. “This is the way I speak to her; she surely doesn’t mind!” I’d love to hear the opinions of your readership. To me, speaking this way to anyone displays a lack of respect, and I think that everyone M&S SHOE REPAIR

should be treated with respect, regardless of their IQ, work output, wage requests (skyrocketing, I know) or otherwise. It’s time we realize that “Doris, can you please polish the silver today?” works just as well (and better!) than “Tooday I vant yoo to pahlish de seelverr.” Let’s make a kiddush Hashem as we get our homes sparkling!

JUST PLAIN FUN IS ENOUGH It saddens me to hear about some of the extravagant activities and rewards local day camps offer. Camp is so much fun; why is there a need to spend money unnecessarily for hair-raising experiences and to raise the standards for our youngsters? The average family juggles so many expenses; why do we need this thrown into the mix? Let’s keep our priorities straight. A Concerned Mother
CHOKED IN TIME After a frightening episode that occured in my home yesterday, I have an important message to share. Anticipating an easy time with supper, I purchased ready burgers, which I would broil in my oven. I placed them onto a broiling pan and was horrified to see it erupt into flames. The inside of the oven was red and black plumes of smoke were filling up the entire kitchen. Fearing that our house was about to burn down, I rushed to my children’s bedroom, while my husband, thinking quickly, grabbed the fire extinguisher from the cabinet, opened the oven door and sprayed it onto the flames. In no time, the flames were gone. All these years, I was slightly amused at my husband’s insistence on keeping a fire extinguisher in the kitchen. Now I thank Hashem for his foresight and encourage each of you out there to obtain one too. It saved my family and my home. Grateful
RE: FAILURE IS AS FAILURE DOES (Inbox, Issue 154) Dear Upset Parent, I was struck by how different your educational philosophy is from the one I was raised with. I don’t know which school your child attends or how it grades students. In most schools, however, grades are not the opinion of the teacher, nor should they be based on a teacher’s subjective opinion, ever. They are not a measure of good behavior or of effort. They are clearly defined reports of the students’ understanding of the course material. Grades are not rewards. They are gauges of how much material each student learned. Normally, grades are earned by taking exams on the material that was covered. If the student answers 93

Ideally, the test material should be chosen so that 50 percent of the class earns a C. In many schools this is not done, and there are too many A’s and B’s. Obviously if 80 percent of the class is doing above average, the word average has lost its meaning. D’s are for those who are below average, which should still be a sizeable portion of the class. Not everyone is average academically. Many, many good people are not as intelligent as most other people. That is not an insult to them; that is the way Hashem chose to make humans. Some are tall. Some are short. Some are athletic. Some are physically weak. Some have a difficult time picking up information, and others are unwilling or incapable of putting in the effort to acquire information. F’s are for those who have failed to acquire the information to a degree that could be reasonably considered acceptable. Yes, that person who failed is a failure in the context of that class, in the same sense that one who runs is a runner, or one who teaches is a teacher. It does not necessarily mean they are a failure in any other life context, however. Here, however, a skilled teacher will be aware of why each student has retained the material as he did. For some, it was the best their

G-d-given ability allowed. For others, it was due to lack of effort or outside events interfering. For others, their style of learning may be suited for a different teaching technique and changing classrooms may be a good option. In other cases, when grades have shifted dramatically in a short period, barring a head injury, it is obvious something has changed in the child’s life. This evidently is what’s happened in your daughter’s case, and it behooves you, as a responsible parent, to work with the teacher to find what it is and repair the situation. Blaming someone for “failing” your daughter is not helpful to your daughter. Finding out what caused the failure and correcting the situation, and perhaps giving her the tools so that she will succeed from now on, is helpful and vital. Learning how to fail, yet pressing on with sufficient motivation to succeed again, is a necessary skill every child needs to learn. In regard to stress at school: The hard reality is that childhood is a preparation time for adulthood. If a child is failing to sufficiently prepare to take his or her place as a responsible adult capable of minimally caring for himself and ideally able to contribute to society, a parent or school may need to apply pressure that will induce stress. In the school I attended as a young man, our teachers would keep each child in a state of stress sufficient for them to constantly feel on the edge of “losing it,” without ever letting one reach a point where he did “lose it.” Like lifting weights to become stronger, this forces the child to grow intellectually and emotionally more powerful. As adults, they will face situations that could break them. If they have never learned how to suck it up and soldier on, the

consequences of failure and surrender when in charge of a household would be much greater than the consequences of emotional strain as a child surrounded by loving family willing to encourage him and nurse him back to emotional equilibrium. J.G.

How Can I Want What I Already Have?
Dear Mother, I feel very sorry for you, and I validate your complaint. I also want you to understand that a student who earns top grades won’t necessarily be the best wife and mother. So don’t panic. You can be sure that there are good times coming. You will, im yirtzeh Hashem, see a lot of nachas from your daughter and all the others. Of course, we have to teach our children responsibility and yes, they have to study and take tests, but each one in accordance with her capabilities. Additionally, it’s a teacher’s job to do her utmost to ensure that each student does well, whether by providing a modified test, or if something is beyond a student’s capabilities, exempting her from a specific subject instead of causing her to fail. V’ahavta l’reacha kamocha applies to students, too, and they should be handled with respect and care. May we all see nachas from our children. Anonymous P.S. when I inquire about shidduch prospects for my children, I never ask about marks or to see report cards. I don’t think these things make a difference in life.

As a long-time teacher, I was saddened to read a letter about a teacher who failed a young student. I’ve always viewed my sacred job first as building students and only secondarily
ye s H i Va B a is BinyoMin as educating students. Yes, while scholastics are important — we want to raise knowledgeable, responsible students, wellversed in the three R’s — their self-esteem and respect take precedence. “They will forget what you said, but they will never forget how you made them feel.” How careful one working with impressionable young souls must be never to step on their delicate charges. Every word must be measured. Each day, upon entering the classroom, my foremost tefillah is not to hurt my talmidos in any way — and yes, I do daven for their success, too! The responsibility of a mechanech is huge. And a document as important as a report card that students save should be honest and not misleading, but should not have any harsh comments or marks (of course, there is a place for that too, but every measure should be taken to prevent it proactively). It is the teacher’s business to make a student succeed, or at least make her feel successful on her own level by modifying the work as needed, if she is struggling in that area. After all, success is what breeds success. And failure generally does no good to any person, child or adult. A Teacher
Dear Heartbroken Mother, As a teacher of elementary school children, my heart breaks for you and your daughter. You are 100 percent right; no third-grader or her parents should see F’s on her report card (especially after seeing B’s the semester before). The only thing that I want to point out is that perhaps the teacher herself is not to blame. In the school where I teach (perhaps it is your daughter’s school), the hanhalah has a policy of overseeing all report cards before they are sent in the mail and having the final say on all grades given and

comments written. I have oftentimes given a student the fairly computed grade only to see the hanhalah white it out to replace it with a lower mark (on occasion even an F). Sometimes the lowered mark is due to the fact that the student struggled the year before and the principal wants to prove that she needs resource room or academic evaluations; and sometime it is due to the fact that the next academic year is anticipated to be more challenging and the principal wants to preemptively lower her grade this year just so that the parents have nothing to complain about the next year when the girl may really start to struggle. They often edit my comment section as well to include points that they would like to make to the parents, even if they are not in line with what any of the teachers have seen in the classroom. It is wrong and puts us teachers in a very uncomfortable position. I have often been so embarrassed and ashamed to send out a report card that is not a reflection of what I myself have seen in the classroom, and I have always hoped that the parents knew that it was just the principal trying to push her agenda, and not me being an unfair teacher. So please do not assume that it is the fault of your daughter’s teacher alone. Nevertheless, regardless of who is responsible for the F’s, you and your husband should call a meeting with the hanhalah (and, if possible, the teacher) to discuss how wrong and unfair it is. Regarding your final point of the tremendous pressure that our schools put on our children: You are right. We place way too much emphasis on academic achievement and high grades and not enough on instilling simchas hachaim and self-confidence, and appreciating the children who do not “fit the mold.” I wish you much hatzlacha in trying to rectify what was done to your daughter this year, and I hope that you have a better experience next year!

Dear Basya, I was told that I would never be hungry on your plan. However, I do find myself hungry, especially at night. Can you tell me if I am doing something wrong? Or is this just a normal part of dieting? Signed, Hungry at Night
Dear Hungry, CHAPTER 13
I often find that when clients are hungry at night, it can be traced back to something that happened earlier that day or even the day before. Here are some areas that I like to investigate: 1. Did you eat breakfast within two hours of waking up, or did you wait too long? 2. Did you go longer than three hours without eating at any point during the day? 3. Did your meals incorporate enough vegetables to fill you up and to give your brain time to process that it is full? 4. Did you drink all your water, or are you somewhat dehydrated? 5. Did you choose the most filling proteins or just the most convenient ones? For example, tuna tends to keep people more full than an ounce or two of reduced-fat cheese. 6. Are you sure you are hungry? Maybe you are having a craving, which will pass. Maybe you are stressed, or exhausted, and need to find some form of
76 / THE MONSEY VIEW / July 4, 2018 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
stress relief. Maybe you are so habituated to eating at night that it just feels like hunger! 7. Are you experiencing any hormonal changes or medication changes that can affect your hunger? If, after investigating all of the above, you are sure that you are still hungry, discuss it with your nutrition counselor. A client who is losing well may be encouraged to add more food to their day to alleviate the hunger without affecting their ability to lose weight. Best of luck, Basya Please send in your nutrition question to email@example.com, Attn: Basya.

Being A Yidi Teaches You How To Achieve Long-Term Weight Loss Success B'H, us Yiden have many situations where we are surrounded by food. Therefore, it can make it very challenging when trying to lose weight. At the same time, being a Yid also teaches us everything we need to achieve life long success. As Yiden we have the Torah; following the Torah requires us all to live a certain way. In the way of Hashem. This demands from us a level of discipline to stick to what we believe and trust to be true and right. To put in the work whether we feel like it or not. In order to lose weight and keep it off we need to be able to live a certain way as well. It too requires discipline to stick to what is right for your goals whether we feel like it or not. Being a Yid has trained us and given us all the tools we need to achieve long term success. When you look at it from this perspective it is clear to see that even though there is a lot of food throughout the Yiddishe calendar it isn't the culprit. You do have the discipline it takes to control yourself. The fact that you're Jewish proves it. To help you understand what is going on and what you can do to ensure long term success, we first have to separate the two situations. Crackdown on why we act one way towards one and a different way towards the other. Different as they are. As Yiden, the Torah is something that we value tremendously. It is our way of life.
Being a human makes us driven by our values. That is how Hashem created us. When we don't live within our values we feel empty inside.
Determine your core values. Your core values are the values that you deem crucial for you to become the person you want to be in your life. Some questions to help you spark this exercise would include:
What's more, we put all of our resources; time, energy, money, etc. in to the things we value the What are the most important things to you and most. the life you lead? That is why no matter what, we won't be Mechalel Shabbos. Even if we were to get Why are these values true to you? $1,000,000 by breaking Shabbos. Create your mission statement. Why? Once you have a list of your core values it's time Because Shabbos is Kodesh. to create a mission statement. It is Hashem's day. A mission statement is a short statement that you keep revisiting all the times to remind you of It is our day and we hold it in the highest what is important in life. regards. On the other hand, when it comes to weight loss Being stressed out emotional people we can find and starting a diet we don't give it much thought. ourselves getting carried away. Reacting to our life. Doing things we don't want to be doing. When asked, 'Why do you want to lose weight?' The typical answer given is, “To be healthier.” Just like we need to be emerged with the “To look skinny”. teaching of the Torah all the time (tztitis, mezuza etc) less we may find ourselves slipping away When asked, 'Why you want to be healthy? Why you want to be skinny?' So to, we need something to keep our core Most people don't have an answer . . . values at the top of our minds. Right now, weight loss is a nice idea. It doesn't sit very high on your list of values. As soon as something that is higher on your list of priorities comes up your compliance to the program goes down. Although health and looking good can be strong motivators, if they aren't your top priority then it remains a nice idea.
With a clear life mission, you can see where weight loss and your health as a whole falls into your core values. At the Smith System we work one on one with each client helping them create action driven goals that align with their core values. We coach and support until self sustainability is achieved.

PENINA HAD A DIFFICULT dilemma, and she approached her rebbetzin in the hopes of finding clarity. Her chasan had asked her to take on certain chumros in how she covered her hair that were very different from the way women in her family covered their hair. Penina understood why he was asking it and she was ready to agree, but certain fears were holding her back. For one thing, she was afraid that the women in her family would be critical of her for making such a change. Another fear Penina had was that people in the community would assume that she was covering her hair in this way to look more choshuv. Penina also feared that people in the community would look at how her family background differed from her chasan’s and make comments about the appropriateness of this choice. Penina unloaded her worries to her rebbetzin, and at the end she sighed, “I’m not looking to make waves, but I do feel ready to take this step and grow with my chasan in this way.” “I’ve known you all your life, Penina, and I know you would do this l’Shem Shamayim. You have always been a tzanuah, and I can see that you genuinely want to do this for your chasan as well as for tznius. For you this is the right thing, so push your fears aside. If you receive criticism for taking this step, listen kindly but do not allow the opinions of others to cause you to doubt yourself. You will see tremendous bracha from this.” We must do the right thing at all times and in all circumstances. The first step is to be 100 percent sure what the right thing is. Just as Pinchas consulted with Moshe Rabbeinu, we must seek da’as Torah. Once you know what the right thing is, then do it. Don’t allow the opinions of other people, as wellintentioned as they are, to hold you back. Nothing bad can come from doing what is truly right. It can feel uncomfortable, but do not allow embarrassment or fear to hold you back. Pinchas did not allow public opinion to sway him. Pinchas was teased and scorned for his act — witnesses accused him of taking after his mother’s idolatrous family background
82 / THE MONSEY VIEW
— but this did not shake him. Furthermore, Pinchas risked his life to do this mitzvah. He killed the nasi of Shevet Shimon in the presence of the shevet, so there was a danger that the shevet would take revenge on Pinchas. This, too, did not deter him. Pinchas saw a mitzvah that was difficult, but he did not excuse himself from getting involved, assuming that someone in a position of leadership would take action if it was necessary. Pinchas ran to Moshe Rabbeinu and asked, “Did you not teach us this on your descent from Har Sinai: ‘[Such a man] is punished by zealots’?” Moshe replied, “May the one who reads the letter be the one who carries it out” (Rashi, Bamidbar 25:7, quoting the Gemara Sanhedrin 82a). Certain what the right course of action was, Pinchas then acted immediately, l’Shem Shamayim. Pinchas did not do the mitzvah for self-gain, yet we see that he was richly and eternally rewarded. Hashem made a personal, private bris with Pinchas — a bris shalom. Hashem also rewarded Pinchas and all of his descendants with a bris kehunah. Pinchas was a grandson of Aharon Hakohen through his father, but he had not been a kohen because he was born before his father was anointed kohen. The kehunah could only be transmitted to sons born after the anointment of a kohen. Now, in the zechus of this mitzvah, Pinchas became a full-fledged kohen as well. When a person sets out to do a true mitzvah with pure motives, Hashem helps him. It says in the Gemara (Sanhedrin 82a) that Hashem performed six nisim in order that Pinchas should not only succeed in doing this mitzvah, but succeed in such a way that it was clear to everyone that he did the right thing. If we set out to do a difficult mitzvah, we should not do calculations and wonder how it will be possible to fulfill. Nobody does anything in this world on his own power. We all require siyata d’Shmaya in everything we do, as it says, “Hashem leads a person in the way he wants to go” (Bamidbar Rabbah on Parshas Balak and Gemara Makkos 10b). May we focus ourselves on only wanting to do what we are sure is right, and in that zechus be zocheh to do more and more mitzvos.

Hatzoloh of Monsey
Past, Present and Future: A Tale of Your Generosity
A conversation with Hatzoloh Executive Director Mr. Simcha Klein as he takes us through Hatzoloh’s 40-year lifesaving heritage, a journey that leads from humble beginnings to the vitality of Monsey’s community.
These days, Monsey Hatzoloh is the talk of town In the streets, shuls and places of assembly, community members are greeted with large signs calling on the locals to “Get Ready.” Homeowners are receiving colorful brochures informing them of Hatzoloh’s special campaign, with the expectation that they will choose one of the various opportunities to take part in this crucial effort. And in conversations throughout the neighborhood, people are discussing the exciting evening awaiting the crowds at the Hatzoloh dinner next Wednesday, July 11. Bottom line, Hatzoloh is clearly the topic of the day around town. It is fitting, then, that we take a peek behind the scenes and get a brief overview of Hatzoloh of Monsey and its illustrious history. Read on to get a deeper look into how Hatzoloh operates, how it executes its holy mission, and how it plans to meet the increasing needs of Monsey’s ever-growing communities. For this comprehensive view, we reached out to Mr. Simcha Klein, a renowned activist and dedicated member of the Hatzoloh board. Mr. Klein was kind enough to take time out of his busy schedule to share some fascinating information about
86 / THE MONSEY VIEW
our local Hatzoloh.
A fledgling Hatzoloh in a new community About 40 years ago, when the Monsey community just started taking root, Hatzoloh began as a little upstart serving our area. It’s impossible to tell the story of the early Hatzoloh days without recognizing the dedicated, heroic and devoted efforts of R’ Mendel Hoffman, who was instrumental in directing the thenmodestly sized organization. In the early 1990s, when an influx of city residents meant many more families settling in Monsey, there was an obvious need to expand the Hatzoloh efforts and establish a strong organization that could meet the area’s evolving needs. That led to the founding of our Board of Directors, which now consists of devoted members charged with ensuring that day-to-day operations run smoothly and implementing whatever new projects and upgrades are required. It is fitting that at this year’s dinner we will be honoring these tireless heroes by acknowledging their decades of dedication to Hatzoloh and to the Monsey community. In the years since, Hatzoloh has vastly expanded its footprint in Mon-
sey and nearby neighborhoods. Over 150 members, of which 25 are highly skilled paramedics, stand ready at all hours to save lives at risk. Hatzoloh now operates a fleet of 12 ambulances, each outfitted with cutting-edge technology and equipment. These ambulances are housed in three garages, one at our Monsey headquarters, one in Spring Valley, and one in the Forshay area.
Hatzoloh today, a daily resource To handle the almost 15,000 calls that flood Hatzoloh’s emergency line annually, we enlist 25 skilled dispatchers who are available at all hours, every single day of the year. The dispatch room is centered in our headquarters throughout most of the year, and often mobilized in the private homes of our volunteers on Shabbos and yom tov.
Growing with the growing community Throughout the 1990s and 2000s, Monsey was blessed with steady growth. Every few months another street or another sector of a neighborhood joined the community. As parts of Airmont, Forshay and Spring Valley became increasingly more populated, Hatzoloh made certain that each new area had its needs met and covered by commit-
ted volunteers. When necessary, Hatzoloh would even set up a temporary garage so that an ambulance was never more than moments away. As the balance of a life can be determined in precious minutes, these garages ensured that our mission of saving lives was never compromised. This gradual expansion was handled well by Hatzoloh and its directors up until the early 2010s. In recent years, however, Monsey suddenly saw explosive growth. With the housing crisis affecting our brethren in Brooklyn, many families packed up and left the congested city behind. A large number of them emigrated to greener pastures in our region, which led to a frenzied expansion of Monsey’s borders. What was once a small locale now stretched miles and miles from the NJ border down south to the hills of Pomona up north. At Hatzoloh, as always, we did everything in our power to meet the growing demand. New members were recruited and a temporary garage was opened in Pomona. (We would be remiss if we didn’t take a moment to mention the generosity of R’ Mechel Tauber who gave us the right to use his property for the aforementioned garage.)
Hatzoloh: There for Monsey When it comes to saving Jewish lives, there is no hesitation and no impediment that will stand in Hatzoloh’s way. That’s why our Board of Directors marked it as critically important to update our existing equipment so we could effectively meet the rapidly expanding needs of Monsey’s populace. First, it was determined that two new, highly advanced ambulances will need to be purchased — to the tune of $250,000 each. These ambulances would serve new areas exactly where they are needed. They also cannot be parked just anywhere, as the expensive equipment needs to be protected from inclement weather conditions. That means that along with the ambulance costs comes the additional garage expense, amounting to a few hundred thou-
sand dollars per garage, to house the ambulance and accommodate the machinery required for its continued maintenance. Additionally, Hatzoloh urgently needs to enlist more volunteers in Monsey’s newer neighborhoods. Oftentimes, the difference between life and death can be as little as 90 seconds, so reaction times are critical. An increase in membership ranks would guarantee that every single call gets an instant response, no matter where on the local map. Beyond the need for training, new volunteers also incur additional costs as they must be outfitted with equipment and top-notch medical instruments in their bags. They also need expensive radio communicators that run in the thousands of dollars per device. On top of that, there’s a crucial need for an upgraded communication system. With our area’s growing geography, including some of the mountainous topography to our north, there’s a demand for a system that ensures that every call and response comes through clearly without any interference. In the world of hatzolas nefashos, it would be unthinkable to lose critical moments because of communication issues. At the moment, Hatzoloh is relying on a radio system on loan from
the county. But the need is pressing for a system of our own. The cost of this upgrade is astronomical: close to 2 million dollars!
Monsey: There for Hatzoloh In order to reach such vital goals, Hatzoloh has launched this new readiness campaign to raise funds for the aforementioned purchases. Every Monsey resident is being asked to join in our lofty mission by committing to a minimum donation of 36 life-saving dollars per month. Families with the ability to contribute more will hopefully sign up for larger amounts as well. Besides the personal benefits and the enormous mitzvah and merits that come with it, Hatzoloh will also be offering valuable prizes and gifts to all who take part in this crucial fundraising drive. Hatzoloh will also offer an opportunity for generous benefactors to sponsor “Life Packs.” This is the gear each medic is equipped with, which contains and helps transport lifesaving equipment like defibrillators and other vital instruments. For $25,000, these generous supporters will have their names embroidered on their sponsored bag. The zechus of literal hatzolas nefashos will surely be of great merit to those who join in this benevolent goal.

Thruway Mincha Area Now Open in Sloatsburg FOR THE 25TH consecutive year, the Sloatsburg Mincha area is open once again, giving travelers making their way to the Catskills on Thursday night a safe place to daven Mincha and Maariv. As previously reported by VIN News, the concept of a Mincha area was originated in 1989 by Rabbi Edgar Gluck, after members of the New York State Thruway Authority, who observed groups of men pulling over onto the shoulder of the highway at the Harriman toll plaza and waving down other travelers to join them for a minyan as their children played on the side of the highway, expressed concern about roadside safety. Rabbi Gluck, a special assistant to the New York State Police, collaborated with officials and Governor Mario Cuomo’s office to create a designated Mincha area that would allow for greater safety. Held in different locations over the first several years, the Sloatsburg Mincha area was first designated in 1993 as an official prayer spot and was re-established on the Thruway between exits 15A and 16 by Kiryas Joel resident Rabbi Morton Friedman twelve years ago. The official davening spot was named the Tefilas Mordche Mincha
Area in memory of Rabbi Friedman in 2010. Open from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. every Thursday night during the summer season, the Mincha area is located on the upper level of the parking lot, and travelers are asked to abide by the following rules: • Daven only in the designated Mincha area. • No food sales are permitted. Kosher food is available in the vending machines on the upper level. • Tzedakah solicitations are prohibited at all times. • All children must be supervised. Children should never be left alone in a vehicle for any length of time. • Yield to pedestrians in the parking lot. • Parking in handicapped spots without proper permits is forbidden. • Drive carefully and obey the posted speed limit at all times. Rabbi Abe Friedman, who continues his father’s tradition of supervising the Mincha area, urged all drivers to respect the rules of the Mincha area.
“We are extremely grateful to the Thruway personnel and the New York State Police for working with us to accommodate the needs of the many travelers who will be heading to the country every Thursday night,” said Rabbi Friedman. “We count on everyone for their continued cooperation, so that we can continue providing this vital service for many years to come.”
Ramapo Comes in Second on List of Fastest Growing Town in NYS THE TOWN OF RAMAPO is making headlines once again, this time as the second fastest growing town in New York State. According to The Journal News, data from the United States Census Bureau shows a 9 percent growth rate in Ramapo, up from 126,272 residents in April 2010 to an esti-
88 / THE MONSEY VIEW / July 4, 2018 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
mated 137,510 in July 2017. With an additional 11,238 residents calling Ramapo home since the last census, the town is second in growth only to Nassau County’s Town of Hempstead. Boasting an 11 percent growth rate since the April 2010 census, the Town of Monroe made number
six on the list, growing from 29,814 to an estimated 44,314 residents over the past seven years. The only other Rockland County town to crack the top 25 on the list was the Town of Clarkstown, whose 4 percent growth rate took the town from 84,518 to 87,578 residents.

Lost, Found — and Stranded The Thai Cave Rescue
Lost A soccer team of 12 young boys between the ages of 11 and 16, along with their 25-year-old coach, went missing on June 23 in the Tham Luang cave network in Chiang Rai, Thailand. A sudden downpour during the current monsoon season flooded the cave’s entrance, trapping them deep underground. After seeing the unclaimed belongings at the cave entrance, a ranger alerted authorities, and a search immediately commenced. Narrow passages and murky waters made the rescue efforts very difficult, and the operation involved more than 1,000 people, among them Thai Navy SEALs, as well as experts from different Asian countries, the U.K., Sweden, Australia and the U.S. Continuous rain caused additional flooding, interrupting the operation midway. Military divers took to the area, and sniffer dogs searched for shaft openings, hoping for alternative entrances.
Found The group was found after 10 harrowing days, very weak, thin, but otherwise in satisfactory health, huddled on a ledge surrounded by water. Relatives who stood watch outside the cave’s entrance since their disappearance greeted the news with jubilation. The boys told rescuers that they were hungry, and then asked which
day it was, as the lack of light took their entire sense of time away. They also inquired if they could leave. While lost, they sustained themselves with water drippings from the walls, but it’s hard to explain how they survived the ordeal. Medical teams were sent inside the caves to assess the group’s health. Health conditions were categorized as red, yellow or green, with red signifying severe injuries, yellow mild injuries, and light injuries classified as green. In an unofficial assessment on Monday, most boys were assessed in the green category. They were given energy gel and are slowly being fed by medical experts to work up their strength.
Stranded “We found them safe. But the operation isn’t over,” announced the Chiang Rai governor. Indeed, the high flood waters — which are predicted to rise further from expected rains — makes evacuation extremely risky. There are several evacuation options
90 / THE MONSEY VIEW / July 4, 2018 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
being considered. Scuba diving to freedom. Without even the energy to stand, let alone swim or dive, the boys are too weak to attempt a dive rescue at the moment. There are plans, though, to teach the trapped boys how to scuba dive, although many claim it is not a viable, and a very dangerous, option. Pumping out the water. Pumping the cave empty with giant pumps is working to some extent, but since additional heavy storms are expected, there isn’t much hope pinned on its success at this point. Sitting and waiting it out. Experts feel that a rescue attempt while waters are still high could be “unbelievably dangerous” for the boys and rescuers. Two medical officers in the Thai Navy have volunteered to be locked in with the boys with enough food and supplies to sit there for three or four months until the water subsides and an evacuation can be attempted. Getting enough supplies through the narrow passageways is a challenge, though. There’s also fear of rising water levels. Alternate exits. The mountain is being scoured by teams, in search of ventilation shafts that can provide a “back door” to the cave system from which the boys can be extracted. The heavy mud covering the terrain and overgrown jungle that covers it makes the task very difficult.

“…Yehoshua the son of Perachia says: Make for yourself a rav, acquire for yourself a friend, and judge every man favorably.” (Avos 1:6) IN THIS WEEK’S PORTION of Pirkei Avos, the mishnah instructs us to appoint a moreh derech, someone who will guide our family and whom we can consult when necessary. However, it’s interesting to note that the mishnah uses the word “make,” and not a more appropriate word like “choose” or “appoint.” What is the meaning of this unusual word choice, to “make” for oneself a rav? In Sefer Devarim, the Torah outlines the reward Klal Yisroel will receive “…if you keep all these commandments… to love Hashem your G-d, to walk in all His ways, and to cleave to Him” (Devarim 11:22). Rashi comments on the words “vedavka bo,” wondering how it is possible for us, physical beings, to “cleave” to Hashem. Rashi then says, “... hadbak betalmidim u’bechachamim — cleave to talmidim and to chachamim.” By building a strong connection with tzaddikim, we will come closer to Hakadosh Baruch Hu and, in Rashi’s words, Hashem “will consider it as though you cleave to Me.” Different people have different levels of connection with tzaddikim. There are some who appreciate from afar the special, holy people that Klal Yisroel has among its leaders. Others turn to tzaddikim only when they have a pressing matter to discuss or a complex halachic query. Finally, there are those who develop a true, meaningful connection with gedolim and consult them regularly regarding matters both big and small. What is the purpose of this connection? True talmidei chachamim are connected to the Torah, and they merit having the Shechinah dwell upon them. When someone is connected
July 4, 2018 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 95 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
to tahor, tumah loses its power over him. Therefore, by forming a connection with tzaddikim and learning how to form a real connection with Hashem, a person becomes closer to Hashem, too, and is thereby protected by this connection to Hakadosh Baruch Hu. Ultimately, the level of our connection to tzaddikim is dependent on our commitment to establishing this bond. When we better understand the purpose of this connection, we become more motivated and committed to developing it. Our level of commitment regulates both our connection to talmidei chachamim and our connection to Hashem. Many years ago, a simple Yid lived in the city of Lizhensk. He
The kind of rav the mishnah is referring to is one that we must “make” for ourselves — through time, effort and work. produced whiskey for the people in his shtetel as a living. Every time his machine would break down, he would bring it to Maran Yisroel, Reb Elimelech of Lizhensk, zt”l. Reb Elimelech would examine the machine from all sides, touch some things, and soon the machine would begin to work again. After many years of the Yid visiting with the broken machine, Reb Elimelech passed away. By then, the man was also quite old, and he soon passed away as well in middle of his sleep. The malachei chabalah (malachim of destruction) were able to grab his neshamah and keep it from ascending to the Next World, and for some time the man continued to believe that he was still alive and living in this world. He “woke up,” davened, and went to work on his machine as always. After some time, the imaginary machine “broke down” again, as it had in real life, and the man wanted to take it to Reb Elimelech, as he
96 / THE MONSEY VIEW / July 4, 2018 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
had throughout his life. Though the malachim who wanted to keep their hold on him tried to dissuade him from going to Reb Elimelech, he insisted on doing so. He finally found Reb Elimelech where he was residing in the Higher Worlds. The Rebbe was then able to explain to the man that he was actually no longer alive and told him to remain there with him, thus finally freeing him from his existence in an imaginary world. This simple Yid had developed a pure, temimus’dig connection with Reb Elimelech during his lifetime by asking the Rebbe for help whenever his machine broke down. Ultimately, that relationship not only impacted him during his lifetime, but also saved him in the Next World. In reality, our connection to talmidei chachamim reflects our connection to Hashem. It is essential for each one of us to find a tzaddik or rav, be fully machniah to that moreh derech, and consult him regularly so that he can guide us and help us continue growing in ruchniyus. It is important to note that a true, deep connection — one with someone who can get to know us intimately and can truly care about us and understand our needs — doesn’t happen without effort. For this reason, the mishnah doesn’t merely tell us to “choose” or “appoint” a rav. After all, it’s neither enough to simply pick a rav, nor is it helpful to keep “choosing” a new rav — changing who our rav is every other day, based upon whether we do or don’t like something. Rather, the kind of rav the mishnah is referring to is one that we must “make” for ourselves — through time, effort and work. After our rav has already been chosen, we make that person our rav by working to develop a meaningful and close relationship, one that will provide the true connection that can ultimately help us grow as a person and form a deeper connection with Hakadosh Baruch Hu.

THEY ALL ASK THE SAME THING. Anyone who hears that I am relatively new to Monsey wants to know if I have adjusted, if I like it and if I have family here. Despite not having any siblings or siblings-in-law in Monsey (yet), I have made my nest here as comfortable as possible and have already woven wonderful memories into it. My day usually begins with a cup of coffee. In my tiny kitchen in the city, everything was crammed into that small space, and the contents that didn’t fit in the cabinets sat on the counter. Here, my large kitchen includes a cabinet just for the coffee and Styrofoam cups. I even have a wonderful window in my kitchen where I watch the trees sway as I leisurely sip. Trees! Real, live trees, leaves and even some grass! I never thought I would raise kids who love the grass enough to have helped me pull a hose through my entire house and weave it through the front porch to irrigate the grass when the sprinkler system failed. They also dragged pails of water in the scorching heat to make sure the grass wouldn’t die. I often sit and grade my students’ work on the grass or Here, on my back porch, looking up at the sky from time to time. my large It still astonishes me that I can see sky and not more kitchen buildings. I live on a street that is loincludes cated between two dead ends. I watch buses from almost a cabinet every single school and yeshivah in Monsey ride past my just for the house. I smile at the thought of all the little (and not so coffee and little) Yiddishe boys and girls who attend mosdos here in Styrofoam Monsey, and every day I get to marvel at the wonderful men cups. who drive those buses. The streets are not very wide. Often they have to contend with a small mail truck, a large garbage truck and some double-parked cars. And yet, bus drivers maneuver their buses with the greatest care to help each other pass! They never honk. The respect they have for each other and the unparalleled patience with which they drive their charges to and from school should be applauded by

every Monsey parent. Once my children leave to school, I can make the beds, get my house in order and think about dinner. While at first it was difficult to always have my freezer stocked since I can’t just run to the grocery store for chicken, I have learned to embrace being more organized and having a stocked fridge, freezer and pantry. I learned how to make proper phone orders, as well as to be specific so that I actually get what I ask for. My freezer is always stocked so I can have food for the multitude of guests I host. Speaking of guests, I never before had the ability to host anyone, aside for a Shabbos meal here or there. Now I have guests all the time. I love having my parents, in-laws, siblings, nieces and nephews over. Especially since it’s the only time I get to spend with the city dwellers. This past Sukkos I was able to host my sister and her children in our beautiful sukkah without worrying that the rats in my backyard would eat the challah on the table. (My sister, who lived very close to me in the city, proudly set the table in her sukkah one year and came back to challah crumbs. The rats had completely demolished them.)
AFTER SCHOOL After my children get home from school, be it summer, spring or fall, they spend lots of time outdoors. There is an amazing selection of parks that are easily accessible, free and local. On one recent Friday afternoon, my husband and I found one park entirely empty. We played catch with our children and Tatty and Mommy were “It”! You should have seen me going after my children up and down the slides. I never did that in my life before.
THE SOUNDS OF SUMMER During the summer, the children always listen out for the happy sounds of the ice cream truck. Where I previously resided, outside the parameters of the Jewish community in Brooklyn, only non-kosher ice cream
trucks visited. My children would watch as all the non-Jewish children ate their ice cream. They knew that we would have ice cream from the truck in the summer, when we’d go to the Catskill Mountains. Now, I may have to deal with saying no to soft ice cream a bit more often than I would like to, but I will take that over having my children pining for the ice cream truck anytime. Another sound of summer that I look forward to is the that of the crickets. I love going to sleep while they spend their time being as noisy as ever and miss the sound as it fades away in the last days of August. Having spent childhood summers in the Catskill Mountains, the sounds of crickets are apparently embedded in my psyche and associated with the most wonderful memories. The first summer I lived in Monsey, I would call my mother each night and just let her listen to the crickets. I had to share the joy with someone!
WHEN THE WEATHER TURNS While the winter in Monsey does mean hunkering down and spending lots of time indoors, my family is glad for the increased amount of snow days, which means more crafting, baking and laughter. We also take advantage of the snow and use our sled! Back in the city, giving my children a ride on a sled meant simply pulling them along the curb. Now they can actually sled their way down huge mountains of snow.
A DIFFERENT TYPE OF CONVENIENT One of the things people often ask me is how I don’t miss the conveniences the city affords. While it is true that many places are not accessible by foot, taxis are cheap here. I also love the fact that hailing a taxi often works. Last week, I tried to escape my home without my husI learned how to band noticing as I wanted to surprise him with a birthday make proper phone gift. It was challenging, since he learns in a beis midrash right orders, as well as next door to my house and is sometimes on the phone in the driveway. I ran down the block, to be specific so hailed a taxi and got in. There was another lovely woman in that I actually get it who agreed to have me share her taxi. I explained to her why what I ask for. I looked like a harried runaway and why it was so important for me to get into the taxi right away. She laughed and soon after the taxi dropped her off, he took me to the shop I needed, waited ten minutes and then took me home. The birthday surprise was awesome! No taxi in the city would ever agree to help me do that! I must confess, though, that I barely use taxis because I try to schedule my appointments and shopping around my husband’s schedule so he should be able to drive me. And I do walk a lot! When I moved here, my daughter and I tried to get to an address quite ambitiously in the heat of the summer. We had no idea there were any shortcuts and walked for an hour in what felt like 100 degrees. When I told my neighbors quite proudly of my escapade, they clucked their tongues
114 / THE MONSEY VIEW / July 4, 2018 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
in sympathy and told us about all the shortcuts we could have taken. We still laugh at that when we talk about the challenges of not being a native. But laughter aside, I love the exercise I get when I walk — nothing is simple or straight. Going up and down all those hilly streets is a real workout. While I can’t get to places easily, the deliveries in Monsey make life very convenient. I have quite a few daughters, and to stand in line and purchase hosiery for them and myself would never take under an hour. Now, I stay in my lovely home, make a phone call and voila! My order shows up at my door. The same goes for dry goods, hair accessories and even skirts! Speaking of shopping, I appreciate The Monsey View tremendously as it helps me stay abreast of shopping opportunities, sales and other local events.
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. We still go away for the summer, because my husband is employed in a boys camp. But now we don’t do traffic! No city, FDR, tunnels and bridges. It is so reliable — one hour and five minutes from my door to Monticello. My siblings travel three or four hours through city traffic to get there. It’s hard for me not to brag. We are also closer to our relatives up north in Montreal.
IT TAKES A LIFETIME So when people ask me if we like it here, the answer is yes, Monsey has turned out to be a wonderful match for us. Have I adjusted? Not quite. Some of my children had a rough first year, but thanks to their wonderful rebbes, teachers and principals, they have eased in. Before they had completely adjusted, though, I had a lump in my throat every morning when I put them on the bus and davened for them a lot. Have I forged 35 years of relationships already? Not at all. I left everything behind: coworkers, doctors, neighbors and shopkeepers. They trusted and knew me, and I trusted and respected them. I still keep up with my pediatrician from the city, and she has turned out to be a wonderful friend. Mostly, I miss my wonderful family and would love to be closer to them, spend more time with them and see them more often. The basic secret to being happy anywhere is having realistic expectations and being positive. Those two made it possible for me, even if fully adjusting will take a lifetime. And even though moving here was very far from my initial plan, I am certainly glad it was part of the Master Plan.

Miracles of Today A POWER OF TEHILLIM LIVES ON
TEHILLIM KOLLEL ACTUALLY EXISTS!! It wasn’t the first time Yossi had teased him. “How much do you pay each month for that bogus service? You really think there are men out there, davening for you? Those stories are all made up. Better to save your money and spend it on real things!” Eli had heard it all before. But he knew Tehillim Kollel was real and arguing with his friend was pointless. Then, in January, Eli traveled to Eretz Yisroel for a family simcha. On his trip, he made sure to visit Meron- and sure enough, he found them- Kollel Meron! They were there, just as Eli expected them to be. When they finished their Tefillos, Eli walked over to introduce himself as a long time member. He even had a meaningful conversation with the menahel! Eli left feeling uplifted and grateful that he had a chance to spend time with these special people. Back in the states, Eli bumped into Yossi at the local supermarket and began telling him about his trip. “You know, Yossi, I went to Meron, and guess who I saw there?” Yossi listened, dumbfounded to find out that the Tehillim Kollel is actually real. “There are truly minyanim of men saying the entire Tehillim every day?” “I saw it with my own two eyes!” said Eli. “Well then, sign me up! I have a daughter in shidduchim!” said Yossi. A few weeks later, Yossi’s daughter became a Kallah- and Yossi joined Eli as a full-force believer and supporter of Tehillim Kollel.

THE MONSEY VIEW / 121
After living in Canada — first in Montreal and then in Toronto — for over 30 years, I relocated to Monsey about nine years ago. My friends, upon hearing that I was moving away at my stage in life, inquired, “Isn’t it hard at your age (as if I were 85 years old!) to move?” To this question I replied, “If I wait any longer, it will get harder!” Truth is, I wanted to live closer to my kids, and Monsey seemed like a good choice. No real in-town living (i.e., Brooklyn) for me! My husband grew up in Denver and needs trees and grass even more than I do. At the time of my move I was not acquainted with Monsey at all, having visited only once or twice in my life. I knew exactly two people in Monsey plus another Torontonian who had moved six months prior to me. I was pleasantly surprised by how lovely Monsey turned out to be, both in terms of the people and my neighborhood. The diversity of the population stuck me. When I renovated the
122 / THE MONSEY VIEW / July 4, 2018 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
house I bought here, all of the workers were frum and all from different walks of life. My contractor was a Sephardi, the electrician a chasid, and the plumber a Litvak. Everyone was so welcoming and friendly. When I visited Toronto shortly after moving, I was asked how I like it in Monsey. (I guess they were waiting for me to say I miss Toronto.) But truthfully, I was already so happily settled here. For me, food shopping was especially amazing. In Toronto, I had to buy my dairy products in one store, fruits and vegetables in another and go to two more stores for meat and fish. Here, everything was conveniently available under one roof. And the variety of products with good hechsherim was dazzling. The first thing I showed guests from Toronto were the food stores. Usually their mouths remained agape for a while. I met and became friends with some really incredible women. That we came from far different backgrounds never mattered. I also reconnected here with some old friends from long ago. The first Shabbos that I spent in Monsey, a neighbor came over to be friendly and welcome me to the neighborhood. As we stood chatting outside, another neighbor, who lived right beside me, and her husband were returning from shul. The first
neighbor said,” Let me introduce you to Mrs. So-and-so. She used to live in Montreal.” Her name did not ring a bell from my Montreal days, but suddenly, the woman looked at me and with a sudden flash of recognition said, “I know who you are!” “But I don’t know who you are,” I replied. “Who are you?” I searched her face for clues and at first came up blank. Finally, it all came into focus. Turns out we had been classmates and sat together in B.Y. Seminary in Williamsburg. I had not seen her in over 40 years, and here she was, my new neighbor in Monsey! What are the chances of that happening? Another time, a grandmother came to pick up her einekel at the school where work, and I recognized her from my eighth grade class in the Bronx! These encounters happened numerous times as time went on. Each time I met an old acquaintance or my husband found an old chavrusa, I was amazed all over again. Life certainly has some interesting twists and turns. I HAVE MET many wonderful and holy people here in Monsey; sincere and ehrliche women. One incident that I experienced a few years back left a deep impression on me. One day I was pushing my wagon piled high with purchases out of a grocery. As I approached my car, a woman came over to me and asked if I had an extra bag. I told her I could double up some of my packages and empty a bag for her. I had no idea why she needed the bag, but it didn’t matter. She then explained that she had just shopped in another grocery and did not feel

it was respectful to go into this grocery with bags printed with the other store’s name and logo. Hence, she wanted to put her purchases in a different bag. I was taken aback by her sensitivity for a business establishment. How many of us would have thought the same way? I gave her the bag and told her how special I thought she was being. She just smiled and thanked me. I do not know who she was and I never saw her again. Surely a special neshamah. Another time I was shopping in Marshall’s during Chanukah. A woman approached me and asked if by any chance I had a siddur to lend her, as she hadn’t had time to say Hallel, and it was still before shkiyah. As it turned out, I happened to have a siddur in my purse. I lent it to her and left her to find an inconspicuous spot to say Hallel. When she was finished, she found me and returned the siddur, so grateful that she’d been able to finish her davening. Another special neshamah to add to my ever-growing list. I love engaging with the people I meet each and every day. There are so many interesting stories to be shared, so many good and kind people to learn from. And they can be found right here in our own backyards, deer and all!

Like a tree casts shade over a delicate garden, a tzaddik’s presence within a community begets shelter and blessing. Early in Monsey’s frum history, Reb Yaakov Kamenetsky, zt”l, was among the eminent gedolim to favor the town with his presence, a gift that brought decades of bracha and helped shape the character of the community forever. BACK IN 1967, WHEN A SMALL cluster of families lived in rural, wooded Monsey with Bais Medrash Elyon and Bais Shraga at their center, Reb Yaakov retired from his position as Rosh Yeshivah of Mesivta Torah Vodaas in Brooklyn. He decided to move out of the city, and his new home was 38 Saddle River Road, a small and unpretentious house close to the community’s heart. Reb Yaakov had grown up a world away from America, in the Lithuanian village of Dolhinov. As a bochur he learned in Minsk, and then joined the famous Slabodka yeshivah, where he learned for 21 years as a contemporary of Rav Aharon Kotler, Rav Reuven Grozovsky, Rav Yitzchok Hutner, Rav Yaakov Yitzchok Ruderman, zichron tzaddikim livracha, and other giants. In 1926, Reb Yaakov became Rav of Tzitavyan, a tiny town in Lithuania. The older Kamenetsky children were born there. Then, in 1937, the family moved to America. Reb Yaakov initially accepted a rabbinic position in Seattle, and later, in Toronto. From 1948 to 1968, Reb Yaakov headed Mesivta Torah Vodaas. Since his first rebbetzin was niftar at a
young age in 1954, he married Mrs. Chana Uhrman of Toronto in 1958. In 1967, Reb Yaakov retired and moved to Monsey. But retirement was far from a quiet withdrawal; Reb Yaakov remained extremely active on the communal scene. He was one of the generation’s foremost spiritual leaders, a renowned posek and rosh yeshivah, and a member of the Moetzes Gedolai HaTorah
approach, dealing with only part of the parsha each time: One year the shiur covered the sedra until sheini, the next year from sheini until shelishi, the third from shelishi until revii. Reb Yaakov’s Pirkei Avos shiur given on summer Shabbos afternoons were also replete with his own chiddushim. On Sunday mornings, cars from Williamsburg and Boro Park drove up to Saddle River Road as Reb Yaakov’s talmidim from the city came to his house to hear their Rebbe’s shiur. Naturally, gedolim and rabbanim were drawn to the great and humble tzaddik who lived in little, outof-the-way Monsey. Reb Yaakov was a magnet for difficult halachic and communal questions. Rav Moshe Feinstein often visited Reb Yaakov in Monsey. The two discussed matters of policy that affected the whole of American Jewry. Rabbanim came to do “shimush” too. Before Rav Daniel Levy took up his position as Rav of Zurich, he spent three weeks in Monsey, watching Reb Yaakov closely. During Sukkos, chashuve guests flocked to visit Reb Yaakov’s sukkah on his deck. Once, the tzaddik stood up to leave his sukkah after a meal, and just as he stepped into his house, the entire sukkah collapsed. Ever unpretentious, the elderly Rosh Yeshivah could be seen hurry-

Reb Yaakov was a magnet for difficult halachic and communal questions. for decades. His seforim, the famous series entitled Emes LeYaakov, have been published on Chumash, Shas and Shulchan Aruch. Some of Reb Yaakov’s chiddushei Torah were said in Monsey for the first time. On Friday nights during the winter, Reb Yaakov gave a Chumash shiur. Mr. Kalman Weber recalls that he had an interesting
ing along Saddle River Road to mail letters himself. On Tisha B’Av afternoon, when halacha recommends visiting a beis olam to recall our mortality and be inspired to teshuvah, Reb Yaakov used to fulfill this by walking along Saddle River to visit the historic cemetery at the corner of Maple Avenue. He had an incisive mind that

Reb Yaakov’s unusual humility served almost as a façade for his greatness.
made him renowned as "chakima d'Yehudai" — the wise man of the Yidden. Aside from his geonus in learning, Reb Yaakov’s ever-present warm smile, modest, unassuming ways, sharp sense of humor and expertise in dikduk were greatly admired. He was a fount of sage, yet practical, Torah wisdom, and thousands streamed to Monsey to seek his advice. Mr. Anschel Weissmandl remembers growing up as the tzaddik’s young neighbor and spending much time together with Reb Yaakov. “Once, Reb Yaakov went away, and we kids hung a huge sign across the driveway from tree to tree, announcing the tzaddik’s arrival in glowing terms, with all the traditional honorifics of ‘Tzaddik bah la’ir…’ Reb Yaakov arrived and thanked us. Then he said, ‘People might see the sign and think that the Satmar Rebbe is here. Then they’ll come to the door, and knock, and it will be embarrassing to find only me here. So the best thing would be to hang up the sign inside the house.’” This unusual humility served almost as a façade for his greatness. When Reb Yaakov arrived in Monsey, he davened in Bais Shraga on Shabbos. He soon realized that instead of waiting for the rosh yeshivah there to fin-

ish Shemoneh Esrei so they could start chazaras hashatz, the crowd was waiting for him. Immediately, he stopped davening there to protect the kavod of the rosh yeshivah. Soon, a minyan began to assemble in Reb Yaakov’s dining room. Within a few months, the basement had been converted into a small beis midrash, which was used on Shabbos and yom tov. While the impact of the tzaddik’s presence is immeasurable, the following story, told by Mr. Mechel Tauber, is a powerful example of how much Monsey owes to Reb Yaakov Kamenetsky. “At the beginning of the 1980s, my father, Rabbi Ezriel Tauber, purchased and donated the plot of land for Ohr Somayach in Monsey. It was a couple of acres of land that held about five old bungalows, and the plan was to take these down and build the yeshivah. We worked with the Town of Ramapo planning department to get permission to build, but our application was consistently refused. This went on for a few years. Ohr Somayach began to use the campus as it was, but it was under a violation, and we were constantly fighting with the town. “Then, one day, I got a call from the director of planning, asking me to come and see him. To my great surprise, he had had a complete change of heart. He was open to working with us to build the yeshivah campus. I couldn’t understand why he had changed his tune, so I asked him to explain. “The official replied that his elderly mother was depressed and unwell and lived in a care home run by nuns on Saddle River Road, corner Grove. The previous morning she had been taken for a walk and, at the same time, Reb Yaakov Kamenetsky had been taking his walk. Reb Yaakov greeted her with a courteous good morning, and that afternoon, instead of this official finding his mother lying in bed, she was sitting up in her chair and smiling. “‘I got a blessing from the great rabbi this morning,’ she reported. ‘And I feel like a new person.’ From then on, this woman tried to time her morning walk to coincide with Reb Yaakov’s. And her son said to me, ‘If your rabbis can change my mother’s life with just a blessing of good morning, you can build your yeshivah.’” The yeshivah went up. From a small nucleus, Monsey grew into a sprawling community. And like ripples in still water, the benign effect of the tzaddik’s serene faith and presence continues to uplift in ever-increasing circles.

YOU'VE BEEN READING a lot about hiking; your aunt from the city (who you’d never thought would step foot into the woods) gleefully recounted her hiking experience while vacationing in New Hampshire; and your son can’t stop talking about his yeshivah camping trip in the Adirondacks. All of this got you thinking: “Can I hike? Is this for me?” But as you decide that next Sunday may be a good opportunity for a hike, scenes of being lost in the woods quickly fill your imagination. You can vividly see yourself sitting on a rock all alone, as the moon rises and the temperature falls; feel the cold rain droplets penetrating your thin shirt as you see flashes of lightning in the distance; hear rustling in the bushes around you and the sound of coyotes howling in the distance. And that lost version of yourself wonders, Will anyone ever find me? And with that picture in your mind, you cancel your hiking plans. “Maybe next season,” you try to convince yourself. Fear no more. This summer, CommSAR is bringing you a series of articles on staying safe while enjoying the outdoors. The topic of this article, which addresses the possibility of getting lost and what to do if that does happen, may be the most important of the series.
Summer ’18 PSAR (Preventative Search & Rescue) Campaign by COMMSAR
136 / THE MONSEY VIEW
One Chol Hamoed, a few members of CommSAR met a couple at a trailhead in Harriman State Park dressed in their yom tov finest. They came to explore what the woods had to offer and asked us if they could find anything interesting, like boating, if they’d enter the woods there. Since their taxi had left and they were determined to spend some time there, we did our best to give them a crash course in hiking and wilderness safety. We offered some landmark tips, and off they went. This couple did not pre-plan their hike, had little know-how to manage their hike
and certainly had no gear. Luckily, we did not get called out for a search. Another hiking group we met did not share the same fate. We met a group of boys hiking up a mountain and noticed how disorganized they were. They lacked leadership, ran out of water and were not sure where to go. That evening we had a meeting and used this story as a prime example of the importance of outreach and education. During the meeting, the call came in. That hiking group had splintered, and some were now lost on the mountain. While the outcome was not tragic, baruch Hashem, this fiasco was preventable.
LEARN HOW NOT TO GET LOST • PRE-PLAN. Pre-planning a hike involves knowing where you’re going, what trails you’ll be taking, arming yourself with a trail map, having a way to contact help, notifying someone on the outside of your plans, knowing the basics in safety, checking the weather, and knowing what to do in an emergency. • BE ORGANIZED AND IN CONTROL. Being in control on the hike involves constantly looking out for trail markers, making sure the group stays together, and making the right decisions based on the current situation (i.e., Is the hike taking longer than expected? Will we make it back before dark? Before the storm?) Assign lead and sweep hikers who will lead and follow the group, respectively, to ensure everyone is safe, walking at the right pace and in the right direction. • TAKE ALONG APPROPRIATE GEAR. Make sure you have the basics in appropriate gear and equipment. This includes sturdy footwear (hiking boots or good sneakers), a fully charged cell phone, plenty of water, two sources of light (flashlight/headlamp), a map, a whistle and rain gear.
WHAT TO DO WHEN LOST You should always follow the pre-plan; never go off the trail or separate from your group. In the event that

you do find yourself lost in the woods, remember to stay put, stay calm and keep warm and dry. • STAY PUT. The more you wander off trail, the more difficult it will be to find you. Keep that in mind when exploring the immediate area in hopes of finding the trail, an open field, appropriate shelter, phone signal, etc. • STAY CALM. Think methodically (not emotionally). Call 911 (not home or camp). It’s crucial to preserve phone battery — keep conversations short and memorize details beforehand (trail color, landmarks, injuries, etc.) so that you don’t waste time on the phone. Texting works better in low-reception areas. Ration your food and water. • STAY WARM AND DRY. If it appears that you will need to spend the night in the woods, build a campfire to provide heat, light, comfort and smoke (for rescuers to be able to spot you). If the weather is cold or wet, build a shelter using dead branches and leaves. When children get lost, they often hide because they are afraid of being punished. They may also hide from rescuers because they are considered “strangers.” As such, when hiking with children ages 5 to 11, make sure to go over with them the Hug-A-Tree principle.

Tell your child: • A tree is your friend. As soon as you realize you are alone and lost, find a big tree and hug it. If you get tired, you don’t have to hug it the entire time, just stay next to the tree. • Make yourself big. Blow a whistle if you have one, wave your arms or your jacket when you see rescuers. • We will come get you before your body needs food or water.

love you and all we care about is that you should be safe at home. • Searchers are your friends; they will know your name. Older children can be taught concepts we teach adults, such as walking to a clearing, waving to a helicopter, etc. IN UPCOMING ISSUES we will take your hand and guide you on the trail. We’ll go over basics for beginners and other tidbits for the more advanced. We started with this article to inform readers that the key lies not in avoidance, but rather in education. The risks are very low — if you’re an educated consumer. The reward is priceless. Hashem has placed us in an area of beautiful vistas, mountain lakes, rolling hills and forested canopies, and it is up to us to enjoy them.

This preserve has the Mianus River flowing through the gorge, with different types of bedrock and beautiful views to behold. The paths, 3.5 miles of well-maintained guided trails in total, are narrow and winding, yet rugged, for an authentic hiking experience. No dogs, bikes or vehicles are allowed on premises, making it clean and in excellent condition. At the parking lot, you can choose one of three trails to take. The green trail is the shortest trail, at just 0.6 miles, and leads to beautiful river views. The blue trail, a 2.1-mile round trip, takes you a bit further down the river. For the complete experience, the red trail, at over 4 miles for the round trip, takes you over an old wagon pass and leads to the S.J. Bargh Reservoir overlook and to the Havemeyer Falls. (The weather has an effect on water amount and level.) Visit the Trail Map and Shelter off the parking lot prior to setting out for a trail map, water fountain and additional information. There are also restrooms near the parking lot.

GIVE ME SHADE BECOMES HEATED In honor of their 20th anniversary, Tri-state Awnings launched an exciting national contest. People are invited to submit a letter explaining why they believe they should receive a free awning. Since its launch only a week ago, hundreds have already responded. Will the boy who needs an awning for medical reasons win, or will the public vote for the woman who has an important event to host? Perhaps you have a better reason that will win over all… With letters ranging from creative to conniving, this contest is picking up steam every day. “Awnings are so much more than just a cover for your sukkah,” explains a Tri-state Awnings representa-
tive. “We’re excited to let people explore the many benefits of an awning.” From young girls waxing poetically to earnest parents pleading their case, Give Me Shade has families all over vying to win. Contestants who purchase their awning before July 20 win even more. They actually get a 120% refund on their purchase! Tri-state Awnings, founded by Martin Lichtman in 1998 has been a pioneer in the industry. With a team of experts, they constantly reinvent and improve their products. From applying special coatings
to keep awnings from fading to introducing the Instant Sukkah; a revolutionary awning that transforms your porch into a sukkah in less than 30 seconds!-they have outfitted over 18,000 porches in New York, New Jersey, Chicago and Montreal. As the temperature of the season hits a soaring 100*, Give Me Shade is like a national outcry for protection from the sun. With only 10 days left to join the contest, its time to put pen to paper and convince Tri-state Awnings to Give You Shade!

CENTRALIA, PA Contrary to its name, Centralia is anything but central or important. In fact, in 2002 the USPS even discontinued its zip code, and as of 2013, there were exactly seven people living in the town. Which begs the question: How does a perfectly ordinary borough turn into a near-ghost town? The answer: a coal mine fire, which began burning deep underground in 1962 and is still burning today. Smoke containing toxic fumes and gas continuously rise from underground, and the danger of sinkholes opening is constant. The last few residents have tenaciously held on to their homes and claim the fire has moved on to different areas by now, but Centralia, Pennsylvania, looks dead as ever.
WHITTIER, AK Nearly all residents in this Alaskan town, home to 214 people in 2015, are neighbors. Very close neighbors. Not only do they live in the same tiny town and even on the same street, they even live in the same building! Their not-too-varied list of addresses places them all in a 14-story building named Begich Towers. But no fear, there’s enough room in the building for town services, too; Begich Towers houses a post office, general store, grocery, laundry, hospital, the Whittier Police Department and the mayor's office, as well as a play area with a pool. And tourists seem to be welcome; there’s even a small hotel neatly packed in.

COLMA, CA Also known as The City of the Silent, Colma is home to 17 cemeteries! In this city, which measures just under 2 square miles, there’s nearly a thousand dead per single living resident, and the motto is “It’s great to be alive in Colma.” Is there any wonder why? Colma was originally established for this purpose when, in 1900, San Francisco no longer allowed new burials to take place within city limits. While all residents were initially employed in the cemetery business, in the last few decades, their cemetery-dotted horizons expanded, and they turned to other retail businesses as well.
MONOWI, NE Despite being named for a flower, the name of this town is appropriate indeed, because what is it if not “mono” when there is a population of... one? Of course, the population used to be much more impressive nearly a century ago, but the numbers dwindled, and then dwindled some more, until Rudy and Elsie Eiler were the only residents of the town. In 2004, however, the population was slashed in half again when Rudy died, leaving Elsie the town’s mayor, bartender and librarian, who pays taxes to herself.
Aren’t you glad you don’t live in Difficult, Tennessee; Lick Fork, West Virginia; Two Egg, Florida; or, worst of all… Ketchuptown, South Carolina? Here is a sampling of our country’s more strangely named cities. NAMELESS, TN There are a number of variations to the story behind this town’s name, but the most accepted version is that when residents applied for a post office, they left the name of the town blank on the application. The Post Office Department then stamped “Nameless” on the form, and paradoxically, Nameless now had a name.
WHY NOT, NC It seems as though Why Not, NC, also thought Why, AZ, was asking a question, and countered with “Why not?” The truth is, however, that this town also has the United States Post Office to thank for its name. When the townspeople met to name their town after planning a local post office, they couldn’t decide on a name, and the conversation went something like this: Why not name it this? Why not name it that? Why not name it a third way? Until one clever local said, “Why not name the town Why Not and let’s go home?” And that was that.
WHY, AZ While the name of this little town seems to be begging for an answer, Why is actually an extended version of Y, which at one point described the two major highways in town that intersected in a Y. Since Arizona’s law demands a minimum of three letters in a town name, Y turned into Why, and the name stuck, even when the highways were later rebuilt to form a safer T-intersection.
BORING, MD Strangely, this town had originally been named the very boring Fairview, but since there are too many Fairviews in the U.S., the the postal service (here they are again!) demanded a rename. That’s when the locals decided to honor their first postmaster, who went by the name David J. Boring, and thus, the town’s new name was anything but.

What happened? Mutty looks awful!
Don’t ask! Gavriel scared me and said we have to stop snooping. But Gavriel is your father’s friend. Maybe you’re just stuck on Avraham’s fantasies.
Enough! I’m confused. I’m going to ask my mother what to do.
What happened? Who’s crying?
I’m positive that Gavriel is a spy!
Recap: Mutty hurries to the factory to tell his father about the breakin at the clubhouse, and Gavriel harshly tells him to stay out of the factory’s affairs.

Featured Home Style:
HIGH-RANCH The high-ranch is the most common architectural style in the Monsey area. High-ranches are also referred to as bi-level homes and raised ranches.
ATTRIBUTES: The high-ranch floor plan includes two levels. There are typically a few steps to the front door, and the entry has a small landing between the two levels, from where there are steps going up to the main level and steps leading down to the lower level (which is often entirely above ground and not considFYI: Most highered a baseranches in our ment). The area were built upper level between the generally en1950s and 1970s. compasses the main living and sleeping area, typically including a kitchen, dining room and living room on one side, and three bedrooms on the other. The lower level usually has a lower ceiling and houses a garage and a large open area, which is often finished to include a laundry station, another bedroom and an open living area.
PROS: Lower level is often entirely above ground, with a walk-out entrance and regular windows and light conditions. The two full levels offer enough living space on a small lot.
CONS: Having the living area and the bedrooms in the same area (both on the main and lower levels) makes it more difficult to manage the organization of the home, and the fact that it doesn’t have a foyer makes the state of neatness immediately apparent to visitors. There also isn’t much extra living space, as the rooms are small and the hallway is narrow. A lot of stair-climbing is needed if the lower level is in constant use as a playroom or laundry room.
FYI: The current average price for a high-ranch in our area is $489,000. The most expensive high-ranch in the area is priced at $1,350,000 and the cheapest one at $399,000.
UPGRADE POTENTIAL: It’s simple to finish up the lower level for a rental apartment/motherdaughter (of course, a permit is required). Extending is possible, but is a complicated process.
