After living in Monsey for a number of years, we have just been notified that there are problems with passing the Jewish cemetery on Saddle River Road (when entering or leaving Monsey), as well as the one on Route 306 (between Viola Road and Grandview Avenue). There are trees in the cemetery on Saddle River Road that connect from the location of the graves to the trees that hang over the street. On Route 306, there’s a tree in a neighbor’s yard (closer to Grandview) that hangs over the cemetery and also over Route 306. Please be aware of this when passing these areas. A Kohen
OUT OF THE WOODS On Sunday, September 30, Hoshana Rabbah 2018, I set out with my two children, ages seven and nine, at 11 a.m. for a short hike in Kakiat Park. Two and a half hours in, I realized something was wrong. The description given of the trail was that it was a loop (meaning that it will bring you back to where you started). By 1:30 p.m., it was evident this trail was not a loop, and we were deep in the woods of Harriman State Park. To backtrack two and a half hours would risk getting lost even further. My cell phone service was close to nonexistent, but through my GPS, I was able to locate a large lake about a mile to my east. With the hope that cell service would be better at the lake, and at the very least would give me a point of reference, we made our way to the lake. Once there, cell service was somewhat improved, and I was able to make contact with Mr. Jacobovitz at Chaverim of Rockland County. Understanding that I was four hours from yom tov and sunset, and at least three hours from where I started, I was panicked, but trying to

remain calm in front of my children. There was no more calming influence than Mr. Jacobovitz. Once I gave him the description of the lake I was at, he very calmly responded, “Let me just tell you; you aren’t lost. We know exactly where your location is. Don’t worry about anything else. I am dispatching two teams to your location right now.” We were able to find a spot along the lake that provided a good, open view so we’d be able to spot anyone around the lake. It took a couple of hours (the area we were in was reachable only by hiking to it), but eventually, we spotted a bunch of men from Chaverim across the lake. We called out to them, and they spotted us. After calling the team on our side of the lake, we were found a short while later by the team from Chaverim of Rockland. These were men who were with their own families, getting ready for Shemini Atzeres, and simply stopped what they were doing and began hiking an hour and a half before yom tov to reach a man and his two children, whom they didn’t know and had never met. They weren’t annoyed, and were only happy to find us safe. Before beginning the long hike out of the park, they gave us food and drinks. They talked to us like we were their family. One of them held my seven-year-old for an hour, making conversation with him like they knew each other for years. I have no words to describe the men of Chaverim of Rockland. Had we not had their help, it is scary to think about what could have been as we reached nightfall. These are people who must have so much love for each and every Jew, to do what they do regardless of day, time and situation. I am in such awe of a group of people like this. Thank you so very much to Moishe Jacobovitz, Yossi Margaretten, Bery Eisenbach, Sruly Klein, Moshe Lefkovits, Motty Roth, Sruly Rosenberg, Yoel Loeffler, Shlome Spira, Moishy Keren, Moshe Farkas, Yossi Schwartz, Simcha Pollack, Rafael Rosenberg, Shloime Spira and Tzvi Teicher. I am indebted to you all. B’ahavah, Ari Markowitz
MAKE IT WORK FOR YOU (Re: Your Voice, A Babysitter’s Take, Issue 167) Dear Fellow Babysitter, There are a few options you can do to make babysitting work for you: 1. Divide the hours of the whole year and charge a monthly fee. 2. Be upfront with your clients, and tell them that if they take off or their baby is sick, you will still charge. 3. Trust in Hashem. He knows exactly how much money we need, and He does provide.
I am a babysitter too, and I love what I do. I provide all food for my charges and enjoy seeing them well-fed and happy. The parents leaving their babies/children would love to be home with them; they are just trying to make ends meet. I’ve seen many times that one or two babies didn’t come for a few days a week... and Hashem had other ways of providing for me and my family. The point is that nobody is trying to shortchange you. You simply have to be upfront when a parent signs up with you as to what your terms are. S.B.
As you ended off your letter, my babysitter does charge a flat monthly fee, with headchecks given every September for the following 10 months. It’s simple as that, no need to stress about it. It works perfectly on my end, and hers too. A Monsey Mom
Dear Babysitter, The points you made are valid. However, I would like to share another few points with you. First of all, many office employees do not get paid pay per hour and do not get paid for yom tov, personal days, etc. People in other professions, including therapists, shadows and respite workers, are in the same boat. So there are many people who understand you. When I, as a therapist, show up to a session and the child is sleeping, or the parent forgot to call to cancel, I miss out on more than the session’s pay: time, gas and babysitting. In addition, many people working as professionals are, in regular months, not eligible for any government programs, and during the months that the income is so meager that they do fit the criteria, they don’t either get the financial assistance, because they cannot get it for the short time they really need it. So how does everyone do it? The answer is not how they get by. The answer is how they deal with the inconsistency. You yourself have expressed the consistent inconsistency. You know when yom tov and bein hazmanim is, so there are no surprises there. Especially if you’ve been doing this for several years. We all make decisions regarding our job/career, and you can make a decision to take babies on monthly salary only, as I know some that do that. You may also run on your children’s school schedule if you wish; I have had babysitters do that, and if you are the babysitter people like sending to, this will usually not keep them back. Good luck! J.G.

Parshas N o ac h
By: Malka Schneps
WE HAVE THE POWER to build or destroy this world. It says plainly in Pirkei Avos (5:1) that the world was created with ten utterances instead of just one so that the reshaim who destroy the world will receive punishment for destroying the world that was created with ten utterances, and so that the tzaddikim who sustain the world will receive reward for sustaining the world that was created through ten utterances. When we do what is right, and if we do what is not right, chas v’shalom, our actions have powerful effects on the world. Nowhere do we see this more vividly than in Parshas Noach, where Hashem brought destruction upon the world because of the world’s wickedness. The world was destroyed so completely that the Radak concludes that that the mabul led to a second act of creation, as it rendered the world once again in a state of “tohu vavohu.” Rabbi Dovid Fohrman explains that a closer reading of the parsha reveals numerous parallels between the end of the mabul and the beginning of the creation of the world. It says on the first day of creation, the ruach of Hashem hovered over the waters. Toward the end of the mabul, Hashem caused a ruach to pass over the flooded Earth, causing the waters to recede. Parshas Bereishis: “V’ruach Elokim m’rachefes al p’nei hamayim… — And the spirit of Hashem hovered over the face of the water.” (Bereishis 1:2) Parshas Noach: “Vaya’aveir Elokim ruach al ha’aretz vayashoku hamayim — And Hashem caused a spirit to pass over the Earth, and the water subsided.” (Bereishis 8:1) On the second day of creation, Hashem separated between the upper waters and the lower waters, and created shamayim between them. By the mabul, the springs below and the windows above were closed, and it no longer rained from shamayim. Parshas Bereishis: “And Hashem made the expanse and it separated between the water that was below the expanse and the water that was above the expanse… And Hashem called the expanse ‘shamayim’…” (Bereishis 1:8) Parshas Noach: “And the springs of the deep were closed, and the windows of shamayim, and the rain from shamayim was with-

held.” (Bereishis 8:2) On the third day of creation, Hashem caused the lower waters to gather into seas, and He caused dry land to appear. Hashem then created plants and trees. Toward the end of the mabul, Hashem caused the water to recede, and the teivah landed on a mountain. Noach sent out a dove, and it returned with a branch from an olive tree. Parshas Bereishis: “And Hashem said, ‘Let the water that is beneath shamayim gather into one place, and let the dry land appear,’ and it was so… And Hashem said, “Let the earth sprout vegetation, seed yielding herbs and fruit trees…” (Bereishis 1:9-11) Parshas Noach: “And the waters constantly diminished until… the mountain peaks appeared… And the dove returned to him in the evening, and behold, it had an olive branch in its mouth…” (Bereishis 8:5,11) The dove returned with the branch at evening, which is a hint to day four of creation, when Hashem created the sun and the moon, and, with them, day and night. On the fifth day, Hashem said, “Let birds fly over the earth, across the expanse of the heavens.” (Bereishis 1:20) Noach released the dove again after it brought the olive branch, and the dove did not return. Thus, the world was once again populated with birds. On the sixth day, Hashem created animals and humans, and Hashem blessed Adam to be fruitful and multiply. After the mabul, Hashem commanded Noach that the people and the animals should all leave the teivah to once again dwell in the world. Hashem then commanded them to be fruitful and multiply. If, as the Radak says, the mabul led to a second creation, it means there was a destruction of the first creation. We saw in Pirkei Avos that the reshaim cause a destruction of the world while tzaddikim sustain the world. Whether you do something in public or in private, in big ways or in small, your choices and your actions matter very much. You have the power to help sustain the world or, chalilah, to tear it down. Which side would you want to be on? The choice is yours.

that transformed this gymnastics program into Monsey’s premier extra-curricular destination
“How did GymPros pull it off?” This question was the one I constantly got after writing my second feature on the GymPros program (See The Monsey View, Issue 119). Last year, I spent a couple of breathtaking hours watching GymPros in action. From the Team girls soaring in the air with confidence and skill, to the office staff handling the comings and goings in their beautiful new facility, I was blown away by the professionalism of this program, which, just four short years prior, was located in a 250-square-foot dining room. After-school activities have been around as long as school itself. We have all seen swimming programs, dance lessons, art schools, music classes, etc. come and go. But never before has a frum girls’ program had such stayingpower or taken off to this extent. You don’t get hundreds of smiling kids and a sterling retention rate in one simple sentence. Excellence and beautiful symmetry don’t just happen. How did it happen? Since this question seems to be on the minds of many parents deciding on the right extracurricular program for their daughter, let’s explore how GymPros truly went Pro! Below are the five key points to GymPros’ success.
Systems and Structure Adults — and kids — thrive on structure. Successful homes and successful enterprises are directly linked to predictability and organized systems and procedures. GymPros has a system, and it works! Instead of doing registration over the phone or having a schedule that constantly changes via text, GymPros streamlined everything with a beautifully designed website that includes all programs, all necessary information, and most importantly, the ability to sign up through the customer portal where parents can also keep track of scheduling, check their accounts and always be in the loop. These efforts are spearheaded by the exceptional office staff led by Daytime Office Manager, Mrs. Zissy Wulliger, and Evening Office Manager, Mrs. Miriam Goldberg, who keep the wheels greased and whose tremendous devotion to students and family are integral to GymPros’ success. Similarly, a training program was developed for all coaches so that every student has a coach who can maximize their abilities and provide them with training befitting a true GymPro.

Growth Mentality Key #2
Instilling #GymProsPride Since day one, GymPros has made it its mission to instill pride in each and every student, a pride that transcends the limited hours they spend in the gym. Every GymPros member is a “gymnast” and a part of this wonderful sport. Parents share how joining GymPros helped their daughter do better in school or improved their self-confidence, social standing and gave them a sense of fulfillment. This pride in being a “GymPro” stays with them even after they leave the program. Recently, a GymPros student suffered a broken hand in a fall at school, which meant she wouldn’t be able to continue her training for a while. It was extremely validating when her mother called a few days later saying that her daughter wants to buy a GymPros T-shirt. Her #GymProsPride was independent of her currently taking part in the classes. In a similar vein, there is something truly remarkable about how the team girls support and cheer for each other. Despite the competitive nature of these classes, the gym erupts in applause and high-fives when a student masters a tough-tolearn skill or executes a perfect routine during a competition. Parents who witness this phenomenon for the first time are blown away. This attitude is seldom, if ever, seen in this industry. This attitude starts at the top with Team Director, Tricia Wymore, whose warmth and energy affect the entire team.
Your Time, Maximized At GymPros, a one-hour class is sixty full minutes of gymnastics. There are no disturbances, no time wasted time on getting ready, and no time lost on waiting for the previous class to finish. This has been one of the core objectives of Malky Blum, founder and director of GymPros. There are designated areas on the second floor of the facility for changing, waiting and observing through the viewing glass. When the bell rings on the hour, that is exactly when students are taken down to the gym by a coach to immediately begin their warm-ups to the sound of the lively GymPros warm-up song. Coaches are diligently trained beforehand to maintain a specific class structure so that every class runs efficiently and no time is wasted between rotations for the different gymnastics events. The bells during the class advise coaches and students when the next rotation is about to begin. With small groups, there are no issues with oversized classes or a high student-toteacher ratio. Needless to say, this leads to happy kids, satisfied parents and coaches who love what they do.
64 / THE MONSEY VIEW / October 10, 2018 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
Kids have a tremendous desire to grow. If they can constantly be challenged to reach new heights, kids will not only thrive, but they will take pride in doing so. Over the years, GymPros has evolved to offer a wide range of programs, ensuring that there’s an option for each student, wherever her training is up to. This program is the first in our community where a girl can join as a three-year old and continue growing throughout all of her school years. Because gymnastics goes from basic skills like handstands and forward rolls, up until USAG Level 10 and beyond, the continued success gives our students a passion, drive and identity, which parents are eager to support. Team Head Coach, Janina Molina, has decades of experience in training all USAG levels, which means that there is no ceiling to a student’s growth. On the other hand, if a parent is only looking for a one-year commitment, GymPros is the preferred after-school destination. GymPros now has three general tracks, each offering a variety of programs for elementary school girls with their own unique training structures. The first and most popular option is the Recreational Track for girls who wish to enjoy the wonderful sport of gymnastics in a fun, instructional class. Then there is the more demanding Stars Track for girls who wish to take their training to the next level, with more rigorous training and advancement in skills taught. And lastly is the Team Track, where girls get to compete against other Jewish gymnasts from around the country. GymPros also offers preschool classes for girls ages three to five, the age where it’s easiest and best to build a gymnastics foundation and where most elite gymnasts start their training.
Laser-Focused GymPros is zeroed in on gymnastics, and they do it as well as anyone possibly can. When you’re laser-focused on what you do best, you have the ultimate legup on your competitors. Monsey’s gymnastics moms want quality and are willing to pay for a program that will justify the cost. Like most after-school programs, GymPros started small. It was a one-woman show that handled registration, coaching and all other facets of the business. Within a few years, the decision was made to go all out and take the program to the next level. One of the first hires was Mrs. Ruchama Katz (née Kaufman), now the director of the Recreational Program. Little did anyone imagine that three years later GymPros would have a staff of 25+ active coaches. More recently, GymPros took the leap and moved to a 6,000-square-foot facility. GymPros doesn’t believe in doing things halfway. The renovations and amenities are beautiful and topnotch. There were also the additional purchases of the most elite equipment on the market to give the gymnasts the tools they need to succeed safely by using the very same equipment that Olympian gymnasts use. As GymPros gets ready for another season of gymnastics training, these keys will be the core factors in ensuring that students and parents enjoy an experience that GymPros hopes will be all pros with no cons.

NYS Department of Health Issues Measles Alert for Newark and New Square A health advisory issued by the New York State Department of Health is warning medical providers and hospitals to be on the lookout for new cases of measles after a confirmed case of measles was reported in a traveler from Israel who spent part of Sukkos in New Square. According to the DOH, the traveler had not been vaccinated against the measles, potentially exposing passengers who were at Newark Airport from 5:30 to 10:30 a.m. to the infectious disease on Friday, September 28. Other potential times and places where possible exposure may have taken place include: September 28: • Beis Medrash of New Square, between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. • Sukkah next to Avir Yaakov Boys’ School between noon and 4 p.m. September 29: • Beis Medrash of New Square, between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. • Sukkah next to Avir Yaakov Boy’s School, between noon and 4 p.m. • Refuah Health Center (New Square), between 11:30 p.m. and 2 a.m. September 30: • Beis Medrash of New Square, between 12:30 and 4 p.m., and between 5 and 9 p.m. October 1: • Refuah Health Center, between 12:30 and 3:30 p.m. Measles symptoms include a high fever, rash, cough,
runny nose and red, watery eyes. Individuals who are not immune to the measles could exhibit symptoms anywhere from 7 to 21 days after exposure. In order to provide immunity to the measles, the DOH recommends that all children receive two doses of the MMR vaccine, one between 12 and 15 months of age and the second at age four to six. Anyone who may have been exposed to the disease or has symptoms that are consistent with the measles is urged to contact their local health care provider as soon as possible.
Simchas Torah Tornado Hits Rockland County One of five tornadoes that were confirmed to hit the greater metropolitan area on Simchas Torah touched down in our area, with 100-mph winds ripping a milelong path from Harriman State Park and through Stony Point. The Journal News reported that an EF1 tornado hit at approximately 4:10 p.m. on Simchas Torah, uprooting many trees in a path that was as much as 100 yards wide. Numerous trees and power lines were downed during the five-minute duration of the twister, but thankfully, there were no reported injuries and no major damage to any homes in the area.
68 / THE MONSEY VIEW / October 10, 2018 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
“You felt the heavy storm, the burst, the lightning, heavy rain and just the fierce gusts,” said Stony Point Supervisor Jim Monaghan. “You felt the strength and velocity of the storm.” Some parts of the area received more than four inches of rain, with five-hour downpours dumping so much precipitation on the area that it would have been the equivalent of a 16-inch snowstorm, said one meteorologist. The National Weather Service also confirmed that a twister with 110-mph winds hit in Westchester County, with tornadoes also slamming Long Island and two Connecticut towns.

I love stir-frying because with the right technique and a little oil, you can quickly serve up a super-tasty version of your fried food without all the extra calories. Your stovetop will stay clean, too! All you need is a decent wok (I prefer ceramic because it cooks evenly and is naturally non-stick) and a wooden spoon to get yourself started. These three recipes pair well with basmati rice or any rice of your choice. By: Ruchi from @Cookstas | Photo Credit: DESIGNY | 845-232-1380 | @designy_photo

A DISCUSSION WITH THE KOL HANESHAMA PARENTS Name: B. N.
Name: S. F.
School: BAIS RUCHEL SATMAR
Grade: 2ND AND 4TH
Joined: DRAMA & PAINT
Joined: PANTOMIME DANCE
Q: HOW DID YOU FIRST GET TO KNOW KOL HANESHAMA? A: I already joined them the very first time it ran, when they were only accepting 20 girls into the program. The following winter I was thinking of expanding my daughter’s experiences to include other programs but she insisted (in her own words): I want to join Kol Haneshama or nothing at all.
Q: HOW DID YOU FIRST GET TO KNOW KOL HANESHAMA? A: A big percentage in my daughter’s class were planning to join one of the various Sunday programs.
Q: WHY WAS KOL HANESHAMA SO SPECIAL TO HER? A: She loved the environment. It was exciting and positive. The instructors were like family, really caring about each girl’s progress. Even for myself, every time I spoke to the main office I was treated like a personal friend. Her joy touched my younger daughter and her cousins who all joined as well. Q: THAT’S SO NICE TO HEAR. WHAT CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE? A: It was so wonderful and heartwarming. I loved the beautiful costumes and professional technology that were provided. Q: WILL YOU BE SENDING TO THIS YEAR’S PROGRAM? A: Absolutely. It’s the best investment in my children. I’d do it for any price.
86 / THE MONSEY VIEW / October 10, 2018 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
Q: WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE KOL HANESHAMA? A: I was considering another option since I originally thought it was cheaper. When I did more research I realized that the Kol Haneshama classes do not just offer entertainment, but a fully developed skill-building curriculum. These skills help with every part of life, as discussed in an interview with Mrs. Wertheimer that was printed last year in The Monsey View. Q: I NOTICED YOU SAID “I THOUGHT OTHER PLACES WERE CHEAPER.” WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY “I THOUGHT”? A: Simple. The original price was more than the other programs. But then I realized that throughout the program there was never a single additional charge. They already included supplies, costumes etc. It was so thoughtful of them. Q: WILL YOU BE SENDING TO THIS YEAR’S PROGRAM? A: I would love to, but my daughter is entering sixth grade. I hope my school will be using them for the school’s performances, since I know that many schools used Kol Haneshama, for their performances and the girls gained almost as much as in the Sunday Program itself. Q: THANK YOU FOR YOUR INPUT AND THANKS FOR YOUR TIME.
Name: H. R. School: PUPA Grade: 5TH Joined: FULL PROGRAM Q: HOW DID YOU FIRST GET TO KNOW KOL HANESHAMA? A: I was hooked by the ad, and B”H it was a wonderful decision. Q: WHAT WOULD YOU TELL OTHER PARENTS CONSIDERING KOL HANESHAMA? I was looking for a program to fill my daughter’s hours on the long and boring Sundays. There were several Sunday day camps in my area, but my daughter is very mature and needed real, solid lessons. The fact that Kol Haneshama has multiple skill-building courses in one place gave me the
chance to enroll her in multiple classes on her level, all in one convenient location. Q: WILL YOU BE SENDING TO THIS YEAR’S PROGRAM? A: I’m looking forward to enroll my younger daughter since my older one is in sixth grade. I am so excited to see the opening of the Kol Haneshama High School program, and I am looking forward to joining them in a few years. Hopefully by next year they will have all classes open so we can make them a part of our life. Q: WE APPRECIATE YOUR TIME.
Name: B. N. School: VIZNITZ Grade: 3RD Joined: PANTOMIME DANCE Q: HOW DID YOU FIRST GET TO KNOW KOL HANESHAMA? A: It was an interesting story how I got to them since I somehow missed seeing the Kol Haneshama ads. Q: CAN YOU SHARE IT WITH OUR READERS? A: My daughter was having a hard time making friends in her class. When I discussed this with her teacher, she encouraged me to enroll her in Kol Haneshama. The program had started already, but b’hashgachah pratis, my close friend worked in the program and offered to help me get her in.
B”H, they were so understanding and went out of their way to make us comfortable despite our late start. Q: DID THE PROGRAM DO WHAT YOU EXPECTED? A: Absolutely! Not only did she start making friends confidently and easily, but the teacher was amazed and said: If I could bring the Kol Haneshama program into the school as a curriculum, I would do it.

Surely you’ve heard the buzz by now, about a new, natural product on the market that will cure just about everything. But is CBD oil really all it’s cracked up to be?

Do the terms CBD, THC, cannabis, hemp, and medical marijuana confuse you? Or do you not know enough about these concepts to even recognize the terms? You’re not alone. Most of us are just now starting to hear of the massive movement that’s rolling across the country, causing everyone to sit up, take notice and ask: How’s an oil supposed to change the world? Let’s break it down.
Controversial Cannabis Cannabis is a plant group. One with a bad rap. That’s because it includes the marijuana plant, which became Enemy #1 in the War on Drugs. The government began cracking down on the growing and selling of all cannabis plants as early as 1906. At that time, any concoction carrying cannabis was required to carry a label that read POISON. Over the course of years, cannabis became ever-more distasteful to the government, which finally added cannabis to the Schedule 1 drug list — meaning that it has highabuse potential and severe safety concerns — in 1970, with the con-

gressional passing of the Controlled Substance Act. Under this act, cannabis was outlawed for any purpose, even medicinal. But what the CSA didn’t take into account is that there are different types of cannabis. Within the cannabis classification, there are three subgroups: cannabis sativa, cannabis indica and cannabis ruderalis. And within those groups, there are even more groups and crossbreeds. Both hemp and marijuana are plants within the cannabis sativa group, but there’s a drastic difference between the two. And that has to do with the chemical compounds each plant contains.
THC vs. CBD All of the cannabis plants are
chemically complex, with many chemical compounds contained inside them. The two that are most well-understood and currently under focus are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). Despite being similar in structure, THC and CBD behave vastly differently. THC is responsible for the mind-altering effect that caused cannabis to be banned in the first place. CBD, however, actually acts as a foil to THC, reducing the psychoactive effect of THC. Now we can understand what makes hemp and marijuana different. While marijuana plants have been specifically bred to contain THC levels of anywhere from 5 to 30 percent of a plant’s chemical makeup, hemp has a THC level of less than 0.03 percent.
CBD CONCERNS While CBD extracts sound like a promising avenue for many medical conditions, there are a few concerns. Hemp, from which CBD is extracted, is a plant that has the ability to cleanse soil from radioactive fallout, heavy metals, and other toxins. In fact, after the Chernobyl disaster, hemp was planted to cleanse the soil there in a process known as phytoremediation. Plants that have absorbed these chemicals are no longer safe to use as food or medicine. That causes one to question the growing conditions of commercial CBD. Are pesticides or other chemicals used in the growing of hemp, and how does it affect the plant? Labeling, too, has been an issue. In one study, 7 out of 10 CBD products sold did not contain the amount of CBD touted on the label. Even worse is that due to the unregulated market, the contents of any product may be vastly different from what the label claims. Some products may not include CBD at all, or may include unlabeled medications. One should only buy CBD products from a reputable company that sends their products for third-party testing.
Hemp in History Before hemp became outlawed on these shores, it was a vital part of American economy. To that end, even George Washington grew hemp. In fact, long before America became what it is, hemp was a valuable resource around the world. The hemp fiber has been historically used in clothing, thread, sacking, sails, naval ropes and much more. The seeds were used as food and oil, and the entire plant was known to be medicinal — though to be fair, most historical texts make no distinction between hemp and its cousin, marijuana, when used in a medicinal capacity. That makes it hard to know which remedies made use of the mind-altering capabilities of THC, or those of CBD. Writings from ancient China indicate that cannabis plants were used in treating hair loss, blood clots, tapeworms, ulcers, dry mouth, hemorrhage and more. The Romans, Greeks and Egyptians, too, were found to have used cannabis for pain-relief and to calm inflammation. Cannabis use spread across Europe and was a routine part of life in India. Everything from tumors to asthma were considered treatable with cannabis. The Rambam, too, was said to have relied heavily on cannabis as one of his tools of treatment, though I’ll admit, I haven’t yet found

the exact source… And now, with the relaxing of state and federal laws, cannabis as a source of medicine is becoming a current reality. While medical marijuana is obtainable in many states through dispensaries for certain medical conditions, CBD oil is now available without prescription — and of course, without the mind-altering effects of medical marijuana.
The Rise of CBD A little girl named Charlotte Figi is largely responsible for the legalization of CBD oil. Charlotte suffers from a seizure disorder called Dravet syndrome. Dravet syndrome is rare, and thankfully so, because it is vicious indeed. Characterized by frequent and/ or prolonged seizures, life with Dravet syndrome is a constant fight for life. In Charlotte’s case, seizures were a multiple-times-aday occurrence, with as many as 300 seizures at-

tacking her body per week. Several times her heart completely stopped, due to the intensity of the seizures, and she was once placed in an induced coma, for her own safety. Doctors were hopeless, finding Charlotte’s case of Dravet syndrome completely untreatable. And then the Figis read about another little boy with medicine-resistant seizures who had been helped with cannabis. Charlotte’s doctors told them they had nothing to lose, and so the Figi’s obtained a low-THC marijuana extract to try on their child, and lo and behold, during the first week of treatment Charlotte experienced no seizures! Convinced they were on the right track, the
HOW TO GET OUR HEMP?! After the WWII attack on Pearl Harbor, the importation of hemp from the Philippines was halted, leaving the United States in a tough position. Hemp was a necessary part of the war effort, with hemp playing a massive role in naval equipment. On the one hand, growing and selling hemp was illegal in America, though importing had been allowed. Now that it wasn’t possible to import hemp, the government established a company called War Hemp Industries and grew one million acres of hemp on American soil. After the war, the company was shut down and hemp was once again illegal.

Figis set out to find long-term treatment for Charlotte. To that end, the now-famous Stanley brothers who own the CBD-oil producing company Charlotte’s Web (named in honor of Charlotte Figi, of course), began cultivating a unique crossbreed of hemp and marijuana plants to produce a plant with a super-high CBD yield and a super-low THC one. With this new source of CBD, Charlotte’s seizures dropped from more than a thousand a month to an average of about four. Charlotte’s story made the world stop and look, and question. What else can CBD oil help? To that end, little is known about the full extent of what CBD oil can help, but the list is growing daily.
The Stories Come Pouring In Super skeptic that I am, CBD oil originally sounded too far-fetched to be worthy of a second glance, and then, the stories started pouring in. And not from strangers. From close friends, neighbors, family. A brother-in-law with severe psoriasis (without steroid damage) drastically cleared only a few weeks after beginning to take CBD oil. A nearly paralyzed neighbor regained the ability to walk. A child who’s failed every medical treatment for drop-attack seizures is now having less seizures per week than before starting CBD oil. A woman who tried CBD for her arthritis found that it didn’t help that condition, but it did bring her lifelong asthma under control. The stories sound, perhaps, too good to be true. Can it really be that cannabis can cure or soothe so many things? Sadly, there are few medical studies to date exploring the long-term safety of CBD-heavy cannabis, as well as the specific mechanisms of how CBD actually affects the body, though it is believed to activate certain receptors in one’s own body that deal with pain and inflammation. That’s not to say there are no studies on what CBD can do. In one study, CBD injections lowered rats’ pain response to surgical incisions, and in another, orally administered CBD oil reduced pain from sciatica. Mice who were genetically predisposed to Alzheimer’s were given CBD, and it was found to be helpful in preventing mental decline. It is also suspected that CBD can lower blood pressure, help prevent heart disease, and control symptoms of neuropathy. But the studies are still too few and limited to give us the full scope of this po-

tential wonder drug. We know little of side effects, medication contraindications or specific dosing requirements. As of now, a Cochrane review of medical cannabis recommends
that cannabinoids be reserved only for people who have difficult conditions that are uncontrollable with pharmaceuticals or other means. Yes, there are broad hopes that
CBD can help with many ails, and with laws becoming ever-more flexible in regard to cannabis research, we’ll be hearing a lot about CBD in the days to come.

KOSHER GOLD The Only Strictly Kosher CBD Oil on the Market || Q&A with Mr. Isaac Kahan Being the only kosher-certified producer of CBD oil in America with a heimishe hechsher sets your product apart from the crowd. What is it that makes strict kashrus supervision necessary?
Though the actual CBD oil is solely plant-based, there are several kashrus concerns. Most of the companies that extract CBD oil add flavorings for palatability. To that end, grape seed is used heavily, and anything with grapes presents a problem. Animal fat is also included in trace amounts, to give the product a certain smoothness. We invested in our own equipment to extract CBD, rather than to try to kasher equipment used by other companies, as it would be very difficult, if not impossible, to kasher everything correctly. Production takes place in Colorado Springs, Colorado, with hemp that is purchased from growers we trust. Due to the market being completely unregulated, there are always concerns that so-called “natural” products really aren’t what they claim to be. What guarantees that Kosher Gold is what it claims to be?
That’s actually how I became involved with producing CBD oil. For a long time, a group of friends and myself had been trying out all sorts of CBD products for different conditions. We noticed that some products worked great, and others didn’t work at all. We ended up sending many products to be tested, and found that many of them contained no CBD at all! It was outrageous, and that’s when we decided that we had to make it ourselves. We started knocking on doors of CBD-producers in Colorado and realized that many companies had secrets they didn’t want revealed, so they didn’t let us in. One company agreed to show us the ropes, but was clearly trying to lead us the wrong way. Baruch Hashem, we found a few small companies that really helped us get into the business. Our goal is to
provide a quality product for those who need CBD oil. Every single batch of CBD oil is sent to an FDAapproved, third-party lab to test the ingredients. In fact, we use two labs, one near the production facilities and another far away in Connecticut. The one in Connecticut has no idea what we are sending or why we want it tested, so we know that they have no ulterior motives to modify the data. Do you also test for purity of the hemp? Knowing the hemp absorbs any toxic chemicals, more than other plants, it’s a bit scary to consider what they might be absorbing if the growing conditions are unhealthy.
Yes, that’s very important. The lab tests and analyses include tests for absorbed toxicity, as well as for purity and potency. Furthermore, we only use hemp that is grown totally organically; no pesticides have been used at all. Is there anything else that sets your product apart from crowd?
Our service. Every person who purchases CBD oil from Kosher Gold receives either my personal phone number, or the number of the local consultant, and is encouraged to call us and discuss their personal condition with us so that we will be better able to determine the best and most effective symptom-based individual dosing regimen to fit the customer’s specific needs. This personal consultation is something that no other company offers. Kosher Gold is under the double hechsherim of Rabbi Yakov Kohen of Texas, and the Beis Din Minchas Chinuch. Products can be purchased in Lakewood, Brooklyn and Monsey. Please call 914-523-5056. For general questions, or for locations outside of Monsey, call Isaac at 856-4312038.

Why the Last Diet You Tried Doesn’t Work Moshe Klein, Holistic Health Practitioner Dieting takes work, discipline, and perseverance. And for those of us who’ve made the effort, we really deserve results. Yet results are rare — only one out of ten people actually lose the weight they set out to get rid of. As I employ nutritional counseling and cleansing diet in my work, my clients often beg for a weightloss plan. We tend to think that cutting down on fat and carbs will miraculously save us from carrying around the extra, shameful baggage of weight. But if cutting out the dressing on a salad is so effective, why are all those strugglers still struggling? The truth is more complex. Our body wants to preserve the balance between acid and alkaline. Acid creates illness in the body, and while we need some acid for digestion and other body functions, too much of it makes us sick. Acid is a byproduct of many things, including junk food. But the primary source of acid is stress. When we are anxious, the body releases an overdose of acid. When we think negative thoughts — about ourselves, about others — we create negative energy and juices in our body, which our body then stores as fat. Our body creates closets, or pockets of acid, as not to overload itself on that toxicity. What creates more fat baggage? Eating a cheese Danish — or hating ourselves, guilting and shaming and name-calling ourselves for eating it? It seems that the acid from hating our action creates more acid than the actual acid of the food. Our bodies are built for digestion. It canhandle the cheese danish; it knows how to rid itself of extra calories. But not when we overload our system with stress. So when my clients ask me for an eating plan, we definitely work with replacing nutritionally empty foods with nutritionally dense foods. But along with cutting out junk food, we cut out junky thoughts. To learn more, listen to recorded lectures by Moshe Klein.

I don’t recall how old I was when I suffered my first migraine attack — somewhere in my high school years, I think. Nor do I remember whether I was at home or in school. There are no details to root the setting firmly to the banks of my memory. What I do remember — vividly — is the pain. It came in searing waves that washed over me with each beat of the pulse at my right temple. Jagged bolts of lightning strobed across my vision. A brilliant, shimmering light appeared to my left — dazzlingly bright, like the sun. It expanded, twanging with sharp zigzagging borders and brilliant blue and orange colors. The brightness was abruptly followed by blindness, an emptiness in my field of vision, and soon I could see almost nothing on my left side. I was terrified; what was happening? “I can’t see,” I said plaintively, a statement that might have panicked my mother had she herself not been a migraine veteran. She gave me an Excedrin Migraine caplet, and I was soon ensconced in a blessedly cool and quiet room, window slats angled against the invasive rays of the midday sun. I crawled out of bed five hours later, hair wet from the washcloth she’d placed over my eyes, thickheaded and craving salty pretzels. And that was it: I had migraines. I was a migraineur, the strangely fancy-sounding, technically accurate moniker for people who spend an inordinate amount of time whimpering under their blankets. Migraines are not just headaches. From the Greek hemi (half) and kranion (skull), migraine is associated with severe, throbbing pain, typically only on one side of the head; an aversion to light and sound; sometimes nausea and vomiting, all of which are aggra-
vated by movement. About 20 percent of migraine patients get an aura before the headache, as I did during my first migraine experience as a child. Auras involve distortions of vision. People see jagged lights or have blind spots in their visual field. But auras can take other forms as well: a prickling pinsand-needles feeling on parts of the body, speech disturbances or distortions of sounds. For some, a migraine might include extreme sensitivity to touch, partial blindness, vertigo, or the inability to speak. There are also vestibular migraines — attacks associated primarily with dizziness — and abdominal migraines, where pain is instead felt in the stomach. Both of these may occur without head pain and can be bewildering to patients seeking a diagnosis. Chronic migraine is defined as headache occurring on 15 or more days per month for more than
THE MONSEY VIEW / 103
three months, which, on at least 8 days per month, has the features of migraine headache. I am part of the 1 percent of the U.S. population that make up this hapless group. Although migraine symptoms have been described since antiquity, doctors still struggle to understand their cause. For a condition so prevalent — it affects a staggering 39 million men, women and children in the USA — medical knowledge thereof is scant. In my search for pain relief, I was repeatedly advised by my doctors that the best treatment available is prevention.
I WAS A MIGRAINEUR, THE STRANGELY FANCYSOUNDING, TECHNICALLY ACCURATE MONIKER FOR PEOPLE WHO SPEND AN INORDINATE AMOUNT OF TIME WHIMPERING UNDER THEIR BLANKETS. I was sent home from consultations with neurologists and pain-relief experts with educational pamphlets listing common migraine triggers and was advised to keep a detailed journal to to identify my own triggers. My research was so disheartening. Triggers include sleep (too much, too little), food (overeating, missed meals), sugar, dairy, stress, certain weather conditions (extreme heat, high humidity, atmospheric pressure), hormonal fluctuations, alcohol, chocolate, caffeine (which, paradoxically, seems to also help alleviate pain for some!)... the list goes on. I was vexed. I related with almost each trigger, and realized that I had some others, too. Fluorescent lights; the glare of a computer monitor; commercially prepared food; riding in a vehicle for more than just a few minutes; certain smells — especially air fresheners, scented candles and commercial cleaning chemicals — anything that has a strong artificial scent will immediately trigger a five-alarm migraine. My neurologist suggested Topamax, a preventative prescribed for chronic sufferers, to reduce the number of episodes. Some background about migraine medication: Most drugs used to treat migraine until now have been repurposed; they were first

developed to treat conditions that are not ours: Botox, anticonvulsant drugs, antidepressants, beta-blockers — drugs whose efficacy was not intended, but stumbled upon. The triptan that keeps my migraines at bay was created in 1992, the year I entered elementary school. It was the first and, until recently, the last class of drugs ever created specifically for migraine sufferers. This strange dearth of specialized treatment is mostly thanks to a long-standing lack of research into what happens in a person’s body during a migraine attack, says neurologist Dr. Peter Goadsby, the director of the UCSF Headache Center. Which, in turn, is due to the fact that migraines were entirely invisible until the advancement of imaging technology. “You can’t see them, which made them terribly difficult to quantify and to get people to take seriously,” says Goadsby. “You know, if you turn up to work with an ankle in a cast, everyone offers you a seat and treats you like a queen for the day. If you turn up with a migraine they’ll shout at you like they did yesterday, turn the lights up, and wonder why you’re moaning.” And as for the preponderance of repurposed treatments — well, they’re basically just a product of how many people suffer migraines. “Some 18 percent of the population gets migraines,” he says. “And naturally, migraineurs get other problems. A sharp doctor sees that propranolol is helping their patient’s blood pressure and their headaches, so they do a clinical trial and soon propranolol is given out to migraineurs whose blood pressure is fine.” It’s a difficult conversation, Goadsby says, when he has to explain to his patients that there isn’t a migraine preventative made specifically for migraine prevention. “I have to say: You don’t have epilepsy, but I’m giving you an anti-epilepsy drug. Or you don’t have depression, but I’m giving you a strong antidepressant. They’re forced to choose what side effects they’d prefer from a rag-tag collection of things that are meant for something else: a tricyclic antidepressant, which might
make them tired and give them dry mouth; a seizure medication called Topamax, which might make it so they can barely remember what their name is. It’s a real drag.” Indeed, for the 10-month duration when I was on Topamax, I experienced a hodge-podge of side effects that was unnerving: I lost more than twenty pounds (My doctor confided to me that he actually sometimes prescribed the drug to patients whose only symptom was obesity!), and I couldn’t taste carbonation; all carbonated beverages tasted flat to me and I stopped drinking ALTHOUGH MIthem.

I didn’t realize what was happening at first. As a teacher, I depend on my ability to deliver a lesson with clarity. Suddenly, for the life of me, I could not marshal my thoughts to explain a concept. Words eluded me. I started sentences, but was at a complete loss on how to finish them. Also, when I would meet acquaintances on the street, my mind would draw a blank — I could not remember their names. I still cringe when I remember being asked by my husband’s aunt, a short while after my brother’s
IF A MIGRAINE HITS
If a migraine occurs, try the following: • Although caffeine can be a migraine trigger for some people, for others it works as a treatment. The dose is one to two cups of strong coffee at the first sign of an attack. • Have a starchy food, such as rice, potatoes, crackers or bread. Yes, wheat products are migraine triggers for some people, but if you can tolerate them, they might actually help. Some people find that they actually crave starchy foods during migraines and that digging into toast, crackers, pasta, potatoes or other starchy foods reduces the headache or nausea, and can even shorten the attack. Experience will tell you whether these foods help. • Fresh powdered ginger, 500 to 600 milligrams (about ¼ teaspoon), in a glass of water has been helpful in anecdotal reports. It can be repeated every few hours, up to about 2 grams per day. • Calcium might be able to treat migraines, as well as prevent them. • Lie down in a quiet, dark room, and sleep if you can. Use hot or cold compresses, and massage the blood vessels at the temples. • Biofeedback and acupuncture have been helpful for many people as well.

engagement, who the kallah was. I smiled blankly, and waited — waited! — for the name to slip out of the murk in my mind. After an interminable moment, face burning with shame, I squeaked out, “I don’t remember! I have a headache!” The pain of a severe migraine is horrible, the nausea can be gutwrenching, the fatigue is a drag… those are all physical symptoms that, while miserable, are separate from my sense of self. My intelligence and ability to interact, however, are critical elements of my personality. When I’m shrouded in a dense brain fog, I don’t feel ill; I feel dumb. I discontinued the topiramate. This is when my neurologist prescribed Imitrex, a triptan drug that was a true game-changer for me. It was the first drug I had ever tried that provided complete relief. The comfort of knowing that this potent weapon was in my arsenal is indescribable. However, during one bumpy bus ride to school, as the sun’s glare slashed through the dusty windowpane, as the volume of the background chatter seemed to increase and echo in my ears, as my vision began to blur, I sensed the impending drumroll of a migraine gathering momentum. I reached into my briefcase for the emergency pill I always kept there. “See this little pill?” I asked my seatmate, “It’s got superpowers. I thank Hashem every day for its invention.” My seatmate, intrigued, leaned forward to examine the foil packet. “Imitrex!” She recoiled. “ It’s not worth it! Don’t! Get a substitute and go home to sleep off your migraine — anything! But don’t take this pill!” I listened with growing alarm as she told me of her father’s use — within prescribed guidelines, she stressed — of the drug. After a few years, he acquired permanent tinnitus, or ringing in the ears that is so invasive it sometimes keeps him from falling asleep at night. When I called my doctor in a panic later that day, he expressed scepticism that Imitrex was behind the tinnitus. He cautioned me sternly against overusing this powerful drug and said that it did have a severe side effect: Almost any IT MADE ME pain reliever or migraine abortive has the potential, when overused, WONDER UNto cause rebound headaches. A rule of thumb is that if you are taking EASILY WHAT medication for your headache 10 or WAS IN THE more days of the month, the medication may actually be perpetuatDRUG THAT ing, or even causing, the problem.

It is our most common problem. These patients... in an attempt to treat themselves, actually make the problem worse.” This rebound syndrome is especially common if your medication has caffeine, which is often included in many pain relievers to speed up the action of the other ingredients. Though it can be helpful, caffeine in medications, along with the other sources you get (coffee, tea, soda or chocolate), makes you more likely to have a rebound headache.

THE PHASES OF A MIGRAINE Migraines tend to manifest themselves in stages. Medical researchers have identified four distinct migraine stages, though this does not mean that all patients will go through all of them during an episode. 1. Prodromal Phase: Early Warning Signs Hours before the migraine begins, many people may feel irritable; thirsty; cravings for specific foods; sleepy, with a lot of yawning; or unusually energetic and excitable, or depressed. 2. Aura Phase: Strange Feelings Start Some migraineurs get an “aura” that begins before the headache or comes along with it. It may not happen with every headache, though. This aura can include changes in visions (flickering lights, blind spots, past images, hallucinations); skin sensations (tingling, “pins and needles,” numbness); and language issues (trouble with communicating, expressing thoughts, understanding, as well as confusion). 3. Attack Phase: The Headache Begins The attack portion of a migraine can last from a few hours to several days. The pain usually begins above the eyes, typically affects one side of the head (but may happen to the entire head, move from one side to the other, or affect the lower face and the neck), tends to feel throbbing, and may throb worse during physical activity or when you lean forward. Other symptoms during this phase include unusual sensitivity to light, sound and smells; lightheadedness and fainting; and nausea and vomiting. During this phase, a migraineur will probably want to rest quietly and will find it difficult to do normal activities. Postdromal Phase: After It Stops The final migraine stage is not necessarily painful, but it can be very dispiriting. Symptoms of this post-migraine phase usually last a day and may include extreme tiredness, sluggishness, confusion and head pain that flares up when you lean over, move quickly, or get a rush of blood to the head. Research into this final migraine stage started about ten years ago, and there is not too much evidence of physiological causes. Some of the migraine hangover feelings may be related to the pharmaceutical treatment taken by migraine patients during the headache stage, but this is far from conclusive. The postdrome symptoms are generally easier to manage than the other migraine stages. The treatment focus is on preventing a descent into depression; to this end, hydration, rest and over-the-counter pain relief are recommended.

intense that I cannot bear the agony; it can be so difficult to resist another pain reliever! THIS SUMMER, the second-ever treatment created exclusively for migraine — the first-ever migraine preventative — has been released. It is called Aimovig. Hard on its heels — just a few weeks ago — another migraine drug, Ajovy, was approved by the FDA. Both drugs are administered subcutaneously (via injection) usually once monthly.
I STARTED SENTENCES, BUT WAS AT A COMPLETE LOSS ON HOW TO FINISH THEM. Both drugs target a neurotransmitter called CGRP, which has been shown to spike in patients in the midst of a migraine. The injections modulate patients’ CGRP levels to prevent attacks from happening, instead of treating them once they’ve already begun. This new category of CGRP monoclonal antibodies is an incredible breakthrough for migraine prevention. Significantly, both Aimovig and Ajovy have favorable side-effect profiles, are well-tolerated, and are quite effective in clinical trials. Because the burden of migraine and chronic migraine is so great, effective treatments that help people get out of bed are worth their weight in gold. As Dr. Goadsby says, “Soon we’ll be able to say to our patients: You have migraine, you have a lot of migraine, we’re going to give you something that was created specifically to prevent migraine. And what it’s called is a migraine preventative.” HEADACHES STEAL so much of my life. The list is long; it includes family simchos, workdays, a clean and well-functioning home, self-respect, my sense of humor, and sometimes, my sense of self. Headaches steal entire days; they get sucked into a yawning vacuum as I lie in silent frustration and misery in bed, writhing, waiting for yet another migraine headache to flare down and die away. Headaches throw a long shadow over my life. I live with the
awareness that they can strike at any time, and I need to live my life over, under and around that reality. (And I must always remember to bring along Excedrin Migraine wherever I go!) It can take a lot of energy and effort to stay positive every day. When a migraine strikes, recognizing that it will pass and that I’ve handled it before is helpful. I have had to learn how to consciously relax when I am under stress, to let go, to give up control. Learning my limits and listening to my body is an ongoing process. In a phone conversation the other day, my sister commented, “You sound so relaxed. All your girls are home since before yom tov. You must be so overwhelmed! How do you keep your calm?” I realized, at that moment, that migraines
I LIVE WITH THE AWARENESS THAT A MIGRAINE HEADACHE CAN STRIKE AT ANY TIME, AND I NEED TO LIVE MY LIFE OVER, UNDER AND AROUND THAT REALITY. have changed me, shaped me, in a subtle but profound way. Chronic migraine will (probably) be a constant presence in my life. I intend to keep looking for treatments and will not stop until I’m symptomfree. In the meantime, I work every day at making the life I am blessed with the best it can be, b’ezras Hashem. And that’s what gives me hope — believing I can live a rewarding, joy-filled life even with chronic migraine.
NEW MIGRAINE TREATMENTS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT
If you have migraines, you probably already use one or more of the many migraine treatments out there. They can work well — but they don’t always. If you still find it hard to stop or prevent your headaches, you’ll want to know what else you can try.
CEFALY is an electrical stimulation device, worn like a headband across the forehead. According to the FDA, it’s effective and has few risks and side effects when used properly. It is the first TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) device approved for treating migraines before they start. CGRP INHIBITORS: CGRP (calcitonin gene-related peptide) is a molecule involved in causing migraine pain. CGRP inhibitors are a new class of drugs that block the effects of CGRP. Erenumab (Aimovig) was the first medicine specifically approved to prevent migraine attacks in 2018. This same year, fremanezumab (Ajovy) was also approved. With each, you give yourself an injection once a month with a pen-like device.
Your doctor might recommend BOTOX if you have chronic migraines. About every 12 weeks, you get 31 Botox shots around your head and neck. Each session takes 10 to 15 minutes. After your first session, it may take 10 to 14 days for your symptoms to improve. If you get migraines on fewer than 14 days a month or you get other types of headaches, Botox isn’t your answer. MILD ANESTHESIA SPG (SPHENOPALATINE GANGLION) NERVE BLOCK. This short, simple procedure numbs the SPG, a group of nerve cells inside and behind your nose. The FDA has approved three devices for doing this. It works because your SPG is linked to your trigeminal nerve, which is involved in these headaches. During this procedure, during which you’ll be awake, your doctor will insert a catheter into your nose, one nostril at a time. Through an attached syringe, you’ll get an anesthetic that will numb your SPG and the area around it. Your doctor may use an X-ray machine to be sure the tube is inserted correctly. Once the numbness wears off, you may still feel relief for some time. COUNSELING: Several types of counseling can help. In ACCEPTANCE AND COMMITMENT THERAPY (ACT), you accept that you have some migraine pain instead of trying to control it completely or avoid it. You commit to “grow away” from a focus on migraines to discover goals and values you want more of in your life. And then you take action toward those goals. MINDFULNESS-BASED THERAPY. Mindfulness is the practice of being aware of your mind and body right now. Distracting thoughts come up, but you let them go. You may find that this helps you manage your migraine pain without being derailed by it. You might also feel less anxious or depressed about it. You simply notice your thoughts, emotions and body sensations. You’ll still need medication and other treatments; mindfulness is simply an additional practice you can do by yourself.

Some of life’s parenting questions are easy. “Mommy, how many weeks/days/hours to Cousin Yenta’s wedding?” “Do you like my drawing, Mommy?” (Eight bobbly stick figures in proportion with family members’ sizes, complete with labeled hearts on top.) “Mommy, can you please make French fries and ice cream for supper tonight?” Some questions are not as simple… Like how to keep your equilibrium and foster a betterthan-miserable experience for your children during cold/virus/flu season. Have you ever questioned your sanity as you helped yet another child through a painful sore throat, hacking cough or the dreaded flu? As you disinfected the throw-up bowl for another round? As you scheduled yet another doctor’s appointment? Boosting your family’s immunity is not just about popping a pricey supplement. And it’s not just necessary for the winter season either… It is a constant practice of lifestyle choices that influence and work with the body’s needs. You may already be implementing some of these immune boosters in your life, while others may seem too hard at the moment. Even if you are not ready to apply all of these on a steady basis, every little bit makes a difference.

Incorporate fresh animal fats into your diet on a regular basis, especially from good-quality meats and dairy, and particularly egg yolks. Are you still eating egg-white omelets? You are way behind times, my friend! There has never been a more misunderstood facet of nutrition than saturated fat. You’ve heard it all your life: “Saturated fat clogs your arteries,” or “You’ll become grossly obese and be shipped off to audition for a Weight Watchers experiment.” Baruch Hashem, this veil of dietary ignorance is starting to lift. Popular health guru and once anti-saturated fat zealot Dr. Andrew Weil, M.D., admitted that he was wrong in his judgment of the effects of saturated fats on health. “Saturated fats found in butter and coconut oil play key roles in immune health,” he said. “Loss of sufficient saturated fatty acids in white blood cells hampers their ability to recognize and destroy foreign invaders, such as viruses, bacteria and fungi.” World-renowned alternative medicine practitioner Dr. Joseph Mercola commented, “A misguided fallacy that persists to this day is the belief that saturated fat will increase your risk of heart disease and heart attacks. This is simply another myth that has been harming your health for the last 30 or 40 years. The truth is, saturated fats… provide the building blocks for cell membranes and a variety of hormones. Immune cells depend on cholesterol to fight infections and repair themselves. Studies have shown that folks with high levels of (good) cholesterol have a higher protection against infection… Diets high in poorquality fat (i.e. vegetable oils like canola oil, corn oil, cooking sprays, margarines, and hydrogenated, partially-hydrogenated and trans-fats) cause inflammation and lead to immune abnormalities.”
Incorporate cold-pressed oils into your diet. Cold-pressed oils have immune-benefiting components that trigger anti-inflammatory healing. Udo Erasmus, Ph.D., the creator of Udo’s Choice®, is an international authority on fats, oils, cholesterol and overall human health. In his best-selling book, Fats That Heal – Fats That Kill, he explains that olive oil is a time-proven, healthgiving food that’s been used in Mediterranean countries for centuries. Its long list of benefits include lowered risk of heart disease, anti-inflammatory effects, activation of liver and pancreatic enzymes, and anti-cancer, anti-bacterial and anti-viral activity, among many others. It is an excellent source of oleic acid (omega-9), a monounsaturated fatty acid that has an ability to strengthen the Th1 arm of the immune system. However, standard processing procedures like heat, deodorization, refining, degumming, etc. destroy and remove its vital substances. This is why it is very important to buy unrefined virgin cold-pressed olive oil. Other common and health-giving cold-pressed oils include hemp oil, flaxseed oil, coconut oil, evening primrose oil and high-quality nut/seed oil blends.

C Eat cod liver oil each day. Cod liver oil has been around for as long as history has been in the making. In the Roman Empire, garum was produced by fermenting fish livers and guts and was used as food and medicine for the Roman soldiers on their marches across Europe. The U.S. National Library of Medicine brings an article by Dr. George Griffing, Professor of Medicine at the St. Louis University, where he proclaims: “Mother was right about cod liver oil.” He and others of his caliber bring dozens of evidence-based, science-backed studies on how a daily dose of cod liver oil is beneficial for a wide range of conditions including ulcers, arthritis, cardiovascular issues, cancer symptoms, diabetes, cognitive function, cholesterol and mental conditions, among others.

Drink freshly pressed vegetable and fruit juices. In the industrialized world we live in, we breathe, bathe in, ingest, walk on and cook with toxic chemicals. They settle, unwelcome, into our tissues and brains and overwhelm our immune systems. So how to remove the junk? Hundreds of scientific studies have been done on the benefits of juicing raw fruits and vegetables to help the body detoxify and enable it to fight infections. Documentaries have been made, and there are wellness centers, such as the Hippocrates Health Institute, that operate with a main focus on therapeutic juicing. Can you eat a pound of carrots in one sitting? With one cup of carrot juice you can! The digestive system has virtually no work to do when digesting the juices; they get absorbed in 20 to 25 minutes, providing the body with a concentrated amount of nutrients. Commercial juices, on the other hand, are highly processed and pasteurized, which destroy all enzymes and most vitamins and nutrients.
Take a high-quality probiotic supplement. If space constraints wouldn’t be an issue, I’d fill up two articles’ worth on the studies and evidence of the powerful probiotic. Instead, I’ll bring to you a little snippet of a study done in the National Institutes of Health. The National Library of Medicine (NLM) is the world’s largest biomedical library and the developer of electronic information services that delivers data to millions of scientists, health professionals and members of the public around the globe, every day. The aforementioned study is pages and pages long with the most eye-opening information. To quote a few lines: “Probiotics play a role in defining and maintaining the delicate balance between necessary and excessive defense mechanisms including innate and adaptive immune responses… Probiotics regulate…immune responses… Results of evidence-based analyses from human studies and animal models show that probiotics have potential for clinical effectiveness on intestinal diseases, including infectious diarrhea, antibiotic-associated diarrhea, atopic diseases, necrotizing enterocolitis, ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome and extra intestinal diseases, such as allergy.” Go out and get yourself some probiotics.
Eat traditionally fermented foods. To quote NLM again: “Fermented foods have been a well-established part of the human diet for thousands of years, without much of an appreciation for, or an understanding of, their underlying microbial functionality, until recently. The use of many organisms derived from these foods, and their applications in probiotics, have further illustrated their impact on gastrointestinal well-being and diseases affecting other sites in the body.” Fermented foods are full of beneficial bacteria and good yeast. They synthesize nutrients like biotin, folate and vitamin K2, which protect our cells from damage, nourish the brain and support the skeletal system. Good bacteria actively fight harmful bacteria and control inflammation. Today, very few people in the U.S. have had any fermented food other than alcohol. Fermented foods can be purchased in the fridge section of some health food stores or done at home. (Yes, you can really do it at home easily. Join my fermenting class to get in on the fun!) Remember, veggies pickled in vinegar or jarred on the grocery shelf will not have probiotic benefits.
While putting these recommendations from theory to practice will make a big difference in your immunity, there are eating habits that actually damage immunity. These main immunity destroyers are sugar and everything containing it, processed carbohydrates and chemically altered or artificial fats. Whatever you do (or stop doing), there’s no better immune booster than a daily plea to the One Above. Gezuntheit!

TYING AND UNTYING TWO OF THE 39 MELACHOS OF Shabbos are kosher (tying) and matir (untying). One needs to be extra careful with these melachos since one is very used to tying and untying during the week, and as a result, the hands sometimes do so on automatic mode.1 Let us take a look at some practical applications of these melachos. May one tie his shoelaces, a bow on a dress, a plastic bag, a baby bib, etc. on Shabbos?
Little Sarala has a beautiful Shabbos dress with a nice, big bow on the back. “Mommy! Make my bow!” she whines. Again? Mommy thinks. Alright, let me try to make a double-bow knot to make it tighter… Or what about mischievous little Moishy who simply cannot eat his chicken soup without a bib, as much as he disagrees? Well, Moishy already knows how to yank off the
Velcro one, doesn’t he? So then you finally outsmart him — with a bib that needs to be tied! Are these scenarios muttar on Shabbos? Before getting to the examples, let’s get a brief understanding of the halacha itself. The first thing to know is that not all knots have the same halachic status. Some knots are assur mid’Oraisa, some are assur mid’rabbanan, and some are muttar to tie. Both the type
See Ben Ish Chai, Parshas Ki Sisa 1.
There is a machlokes Rishonim as to which knots are assur mid’Oraisa, assur mid’rabbanan and muttar l’chatchilah. According to the Rif and the Rambam, a knot that is made professionally and made to last forever is assur mid’Oraisa. If it is made professionally, but not made to last forever, or made to last forever but not made professionally, it is assur mid’rabbanan. If it is neither professionally made nor made to last forever it is muttar l’chatchilah. However, according to Rashi and the Rosh, the determining factor is only time. A knot that is made to last forever is assur mid’Oraisa, if it is made to last for a mediocre period it is assur mid’rabbanan, and if it is made to last for a short time it is muttar l’chatchilah. See Beis Yosef 317:1 for a detailed explanation of the different opinions as to what is considered a long, mediocre and short time. 2
3 See Tur, Beis Yosef, Shulchan Aruch 317:1. See Mishnah Berurah 317:6, who says in the name of the Pri Megadim that one day is 24 hours. There is a machlokes whether one is allowed to make a knot only for less than one day or less than one week. The Ben Ish Chai and the Kaf Hachaim rule that one is not allowed to make a non-professional knot unless it is made to untie within one day. See Biur Halacha 317:4 “Sheinam” who is also machmir unless it is a makom tzorech. 4
See Rema 317:1 and Biur Halachah, 317:1 “Hakosher.”
Rema 317:1; See Birkei Yosef (brought in Shaarei Teshuvah) who says the minhag in his place was to tie a knot over a knot.
6 There is a machlokes if a bow on top of a single knot has the halachic status of a knot. The Mordechai (brought in Beit Yosef), Taz (317:7) and Magen Avraham (317:15) all hold it has the halachic status of a knot, while the Agur (brought in Rema 317:5) and the Levush (317:5) hold that it does not have the halachic status of a knot. The Mishnah Berurah (317:29) is machmir, and therefore one should only tie it with the intention to undo it within a day. 7
See Chut Shani, Shabbos, vol. 2, p. 228.
See Biur Halachah 317:1 “Hakosher”; It is worth mentioning that this is assur anyhow because a tzitzis knot is considered a strong knot, which is always assur to make on Shabbos.
9 Shemiras Shabbos K’hilchasah; some seforim mention that if one makes the second knot using just the bows, then one can undo it simply by pulling on one string and therefore it should be muttar. Based on this they left the psak of Shemiras Shabbos K’hilchasah b’tzarich iyun. However, this is dependant on whether one of the strings passes through the two bows. If no string passes through the two bows, then one is essentially making a double knot, which is assur, as mentioned in Shemiras Shabbos K’hilchasah. Since for one who is not an expert in how this knot is made, it is rather easy to make an assur knot, one should stay away from even making another knot on top using the two bows.

of knot and the amount of time intended for it to last can change the halachic status of the knot.2 Practically speaking, the halacha says that only knots that aren’t made professionally and are made to last less than 24 hours (or, in a case of need, less than one week) are muttar to make and undo on Shabbos.3 The poskim say that since today we are not experts in what is considered a professional knot, one should not make any knot that is tight enough that it wouldn’t undo itself with time.4 Examples of these assur types of knots are a knot over a knot (i.e., a double knot) or a single knot at the end of one string.5 These types of knots are assur to make, even if one has in mind to undo them within a day. A bow that is made on top of a single knot is not considered a professional knot. Accordingly, one is allowed to make a bow on top of a single knot, if one has in mind to undo it within a day (or, in a time of need, within a week) of tying it.6 Similarly one may untie such a knot if at the time of making the knot, one had in mind to undo it within a day (or, again, in a time of need, within a week). When tying shoes, dresses, bags, etc., one may make a bow on top of a single knot in a way that one can undo it by pulling on one string, as long as he has in mind to undo it within a day. Similarly, one may undo such a knot if at the time of making the knot one had in mind to undo it in less than a day (or, in a time of need, within a week). However, one may not make a knot on top of a knot (a double knot) or undo it since that is considered a tight knot that is assur to make on Shabbos. However, intent does not play a factor when it comes to a knot that people usually, or even sometimes, tie to last forever. Such a knot, regardless of whether the person who makes it has in mind to undo it before then, is still assur to make. Therefore, one may not tie or even tighten the knot of tzitzis, even if one has in mind to undo it within a day since it is usually made to last.7 Based on this, for those who leave their shoes tied forever, even when taking them off and putting them back on, it is assur for them to tie their shoes on Shabbos, even with the intention to undo them within a day.8 So when Mommy wants to tie Sarala’s bow even tighter with a double-bow knot, she is essentially making a double knot, which is assur on Shabbos.9 And when putting on Moishy’s bib, just be sure to tie it in a bow on top of a single knot while having in mind to undo it within the day.

Headaches are one of the most common causes of pain, and at some point or another, we’ve all had our turn clutching the head, pinching the bridge of the nose, or applying pressure to the temples. However, while they can certainly be highly uncomfortable, 90 percent of all headaches — including tension headaches, migraines and cluster headaches — are harmless.
Headaches don’t discriminate. Almost. Even kids sometimes suffer from headaches. However, women get headaches about four times more than men do, and oddly, headaches occur with less frequency and with less severity as a person ages.
While treatment varies and depends on the cause, most people treat their headaches with over-the-counter medication. It is recommended to proceed with caution when one turns to medication on a steady basis, however, since doing so can cause rebound headaches, which occur as a result of treating headaches with medication too often.
The ancient Greeks and Romans used peppermint tea when plagued by headaches, and also treated themselves with drinks infused with chamomile, rosemary or lavender. Less pleasantly, they would also wrap their heads with raw potato, cabbage or onion to find relief.
Since the brain has no pain receptors, what feels like discomfort of the brain is actually an artery, vein, muscle, the brain stem, or even parts of the eyes, ears or teeth complaining. Sometime the pain can be caused by a tight headband, hat or swimming goggles, for example, and in those instances, loosening the offending article of clothing will relieve symptoms. Brain freeze, a sudden and sharp pain in the forehead very familiar to those who favor cold treats, is actually referred pain, which means that it is sourced elsewhere. In this case, it is the sudden constricting and dilating of the capillaries in the sinuses — which occur as a reaction to the sudden change in temperature — that cause the pain, but since the nerve in the area is a major facial nerve, the brain interprets the pain signals as coming from the forehead.

Astonishingly, there are over 200 kinds of headaches, with some of the more common primary ( harmless) headaches being tension-type headaches and migraines, and to a lesser degree, cluster headaches. Interestingly, researchers are still not certain about how exactly these headaches happen, though many theories have been believed (and disproved) over time.
TENSION HEADACHES These headaches are often described as a dull tightness or band of pressure, and they are often the result of contracted neck, shoulder or head muscles. Tension headaches can be either episodic (if they occur less than 15 days a month) or chronic (if they occur more than that). They can last from a half hour up to a few days, and about 80 percent of the U.S. adult population will get a tension headache every now and then, with 3 percent of the population suffering chronically. As its name suggests, tension headaches most typically result from outside stressors, such as fatigue, anxiety, bad posture, hunger, low iron levels, too much alcohol, and so on. It is best to avoid such triggers, and then treat the headache when it is still mild, if it occurs. A heating pad may also help relieve symptoms.
While migraines may begin with symptoms like seeing spots of light, etc., during the actual headache attack a migraine typically feels like a pulsing or throbbing pain on one or both sides of the head. Accompanying symptoms may include light, touch or smell sensitivities; nausea and vomiting; lightheadedness; and/or blurred vision. A migraine is the third most common ailment in the world, with approximately 2 percent of the world population chronic sufferers. Migraines affect more women than men, can last for a few hours up to a few days, and usually occur between one and four times a month. Some sufferers have found that a cold pack (or ice cubes wrapped in a towel) on the forehead or even a cold shower can be helpful in relieving symptoms.
CLUSTER HEADACHES While cluster headaches typically pass faster than tension or migraine headaches, a cluster headache brings on intense pain that feels like burning or piercing behind or around an eye. Such a headache often lasts between 15 minutes and 3 hours, and can be accompanied by a reddening or teary eye, drooping eyelid and runny or stuffy nose of the side of the pain. Cluster headaches affect men about three or four times more than women, and they usually appear before the age of 30. They are called cluster headaches because they occur in groups during a cluster period, appearing one to three times each day for a few weeks or months. These cluster headaches generally appear during the same time each year, and thatâ€™s why people often mistake them for seasonal allergies.

Hello. I’m here on behalf of the antimissionary organization in Israel. By law, and with authorization from the local police, you must release the children.
You’re right, but they went to another country willingly, and they didn’t even tell me where they went.
What do you mean? They are your responsibility.
I don’t believe you!
By all means, come in and check. There’s no one here.
Hurry to the car that will pick you up in the parking lot.
Great, all of us are stuffed in the car. Drive quickly, but be careful. The Israelis are waiting for us below.
Kids, bend down so they don’t see you.
They’re fleeing, and they almost ran over us!
Recap: The anti-missionary agents approach the building. The boys are rushed to the hiding place.
