SHOPPERS GUIDE | 782.8022

ALL DISEASE START IN THE GUT I was diagnosed with crohn's disease at age 17, my symptoms have healed, but I was still on meds, until a half a year ago, when I found "Fer-Real" lacto-fermented vegetables, now I am completely off meds. Chaim Moshe S. Monroe, NY

My kid has been dealing with eczema for almost 3 years now, we tried everything, all types of creams and therapies, We even contemplated a trip to Switzerland, since we found "Fer-Real" fermented vegetables & beverages, he looks much, much better, bear in mind it's only been a few weeks since we started.

After just a few weeks of eating fermented vegetables & drinks, I've seen a major change in my weight-loss Journey, I actually feel how it reseals my leaky gut, and those few extra stubborn pounds, are not so stubborn anymore... Chana K. Williamsburg

I was dealing with postpartum constipation, everything I tried failed, until I found "Fer-Real" fermented vegetables, it's been a couple of weeks and I'm all cured. Zissy B. Flatbush

TIMELY INSPIRATION (Re: Ignited by the Chanukah Lights, Issue 174) After being so inspired by the series by Rabbi Dovid Steiman and enjoying the positive effect it had on my approach to Chanukah licht on the first night of Chanukah, I felt I had to write in and express my appreciation for the timely inspiration. It was the boost I needed to stress on what’s important and to really make my kids the central focus at this time. Inspired

amazing ideas that I plan to implement in my own party at home. I’d like to know how to prepare the spiced cauliflower and roasted nuts for the soup. A.T. ROSA GOLD RESPONDS: I apologize for the omission. For the spiced cauliflower, toss a bag of frozen cauliflower florets with ¼ cup oil, 1 tsp. paprika, ½ tsp. garlic powder, 1 tsp. turmeric, and salt and pepper. Place it on baking sheet, and roast at 450° for 15–20 minutes. Garnish with parsley flakes. For the nuts, simply roast sliced almonds in the oven for several minutes.

APPRECIATION FOR ALL This is a reminder not to forget about the bus drivers when teachers are being tipped. I also like to bring cookies or some other token of appreciation to the office staff at school at this time. B.K.

A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP (Re: Sales Superstar, Issue 170) The Monsey View’s recent series about our local salespeople was a wonderful look into our heimishe businesses and a reminder of how special our storeowners and salespeople truly are. It brought to mind my own recent experience with a local mattress store, Sleep Tight Bedding. Having not purchased mattresses in many years, we were somewhat confused with all the options available. Mr. Roth and his amazing salesperson, Elazar, were patient and knowledgeable, and while making us feel like we were their top priority, walked us through all the options and choices and explained all the minute differences of a vast selection of mattresses. Their care and devotion continues to provide us with a comfortable night’s rest! Thank you! A Happy Shopper

CUSTOMER SERVICE, DELIVERED After a hectic day out with my grandchildren in Shoppers Haven, I realized in dismay that I had arrived home without my groceries. I tried to get through to someone at Rockland Kosher, hoping they’d be able to locate my bags so I can pick them up. But before long, there was a knock at the door and Rockland Kosher’s delivery man arrived with my shopping bags. Someone at the store had apparently looked up whose order it was and made sure to have it delivered as soon as possible. An Awed Customer

A WARM GESTURE Dear Mrs. 35 Calvert Drive, Unit 301, No words are adequate to express our “warm” feelings of appreciation toward your heartfelt gesture last Wednesday night. Our family, which includes four little children, was waiting in the cold for over a halfhour, and you made such a kiddush Hashem by caring and inviting us all into your warm car to wait. Thank you! A Grateful Family

GROWING PAINS Bli ayin hara, there is so much community growth happening round our parts that buildings are popping up wherever one looks. Along with buildings come builders, of course. And that brings me to my concern: It is absolutely heart-stopping to watch workers high above our heads scurrying about, lifting heavy objects, balancing on narrow beams and engaging in complicated building tasks. A simple slip of the foot or a moment of imbalance could have devastating effects on the worker, his family — and our community. Dear roofers, framers and sheetrockers: Please take steps to ensure your workers’ safety. One building company in NYC, Gilbrane, instituted a rule requiring workers to wear a safety harness at heights above six feet, and in doing so, saved the lives of 20 people who fell — in only a five-year period. One can never be careful enough, and a little effort can change the possible outcome for many people. Hoping for a Change

Parshas

Mikeitz By: Malka Schneps

IN THIS WEEK’S PARSHA, Yosef Hatzaddik plants his goblet in the bag of Binyamin. The Midrash tells us that when the goblet was found in Binyamin’s sack, the brothers believed that Binyamin really had stolen it. They beat Binyamin about the shoulders, shouting, “Thief, son of a thief, you have shamed us! You are your mother’s son! Your mother likewise shamed our father when she stole the household idols from Lavan!” The Midrash goes on to reveal that it was in the zechus of that undeserved beating on Binyamin’s shoulders that Binyamin later merited to have the Beis Hamikdash built in his portion, as Moshe declared: “Beloved of Hashem… He dwells between his shoulders” (Devarim 33:12). (Midrash Tanchuma [Buber], Mikeitz 13) Rashi notes that this refers to the Beis Hamikdash dwelling in Binyamin’s portion. When you think about it, there are are two kinds of suffering: suffering related to something we have done and suffering unrelated to anything we have done, which therefore appears “undeserved.” Every measure of suffering, however, has the ability to bring good for the sufferer, depending on how they respond to the suffering. In Binyamin’s case, he quietly accepted a beating that he did not deserve. Binyamin did not turn the beating into a fight by striking back against the undeserved beating he received from his brothers. His silence earned him a tremendous reward: the Beis Makidash built within his portion. Every time we suffer, we have the opportunity to wipe out a past transgression or usher in a new bracha. While we do not want to suffer, and we try to avoid suffering, as long as we are in galus, suffering is inevitable. Indeed, galus is replete with suffering, but there are moments of light within galus, and there are reprieves from certain types of suffering. Chanukah is such a time, Zos Chanukah in particular. R’ Elimelech Biderman, shlit”a, mentions three ways that Zos Chanukah is a segulah to help with some aspect of galus. Childlessness is one suffering that can occur within galus. The Bnei Yissaschar states, "The earlier rabbanim often say that Chanukah is mesugal for the

84 / THE MONSEY VIEW

childless women to bear children... In my opinion, the segulah is primarily on Zos Chanukah..." Another suffering in galus is the struggle for parnassah. Rebbe Pinchas of Koritz, zt”l, said that Zos Chanukah is mesugal for parnassah. He learned this from the eight words of praise we say in Vayivorach Dovid. The eighth word of praise is wealth (Divrei HaYamim I 29:11). This corresponds to the eighth day of Chanukah, because on that day one can merit parnassah and wealth. R’ Biderman points out that the other days of Chanukah are also mesugal for wealth and parnassah, citing the Arugas Habosem, zt”l, (Vayigash) who teaches that in the pasuk, "For the sake of parnassah, Hashem sent me before you..." (Bereishis 45:5), the word shlachani is roshei teivos for “l’hadlik ner Chanukah shmonas yamim — The candles of Chanukah are for eight days.” Those who light the Chanukah licht for eight days will merit parnassah. Of course, the ultimate end to suffering would be the coming of Moshiach. Indeed, R’ Biderman concludes with a lesson from the Sforno about Moshiach from this week's parsha: It states, "Pharaoh summoned, and Yosef was called, and he was rushed out of the dungeon..." (Bereishis 41:14). The Sforno writes: “Yosef was saved quickly, as it states, ‘they rushed him out,’ like all of Hashem's salvations that happen immediately. As it states (Yeshayah 56:1), 'My salvation is close to come.' ...This is what happened in Mitzrayim, as it states (Shemos 12:39), 'They were banished from Mitzrayim.' As Chazal tell us that their dough didn’t have time to rise before the King of kings, Hakadosh Baruch Hu, redeemed them. This will also occur in the future, as it states, 'Suddenly he will come to his heichal, the master (Moshiach) whom you are awaiting' (Malachi 3:1).” Yosef’s salvation came quickly, the Bnei Yisroel were redeemed from Mitzrayim quickly, and ultimately, we will be brought out of galus quickly. Yeshuas Hashem keheref ayin. May we all be ready when it happens, and may it come quickly. A freilichen Chanukah!

Remodeling a kitchen is exhilarating — and exhausting. Before you whip up that welcome-home supper or serve your husband coffee in that perfect, gleaming new space, there’s a daunting runaround to stores and a dizzying series of choices to be made. Because after finally settling on your kitchen design, you must trek to the tile stores, armed with samples of the cabinets, to choose your wall tiles, floor tiles and backsplash. Then, laden with tile samples plus the cabinet samples, you make your way to select the countertop. If you’re tired of running around, there’s an easier way. Royal Granite and Tile offers a unique combination for retail clients: cabinets, tiles, quartz and granite in one showroom. Simply put: no more schlepping around. “When you remodel your kitchen or bathroom, there are so many factors involved in unifying the design,” says proprietor Mr. Chaim Kwadrat. “Clients want to be sure that their colors are a perfect match, and they sometimes expend a lot of energy running between

tile and counter retailers. With us, you choose all the elements of your new kitchen in one stop. We have an immense selection of quartz and granite countertops and a huge range of wall and floor tiles in porcelain, stone, ceramic, glass—you name it. What Royal offers is an all-inclusive, bespoke kitchen experience.” It’s not only your kitchen that can be custom-ordered at Royal Granite — all elements needed for bathroom design are there under one roof. There’s a selection of wall and floor tiles in the most contemporary colors and styles, elegant vanity units — as well granite and quartz for custom designs. And that’s not it. Royal Granite also sells Jacuzzi tops, benches, saddles and niches. After eight years of serving Monsey homeowners in their current location, Royal Granite and Tile is making an exciting move to a 3,000-square-foot showroom. The expansion will enable their full range of counters and tiles to be displayed in use, on tiled kitchen and island fixtures. In our very bright showroom, customers can view the beautiful natu-

December 5, 2018 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 91 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


ral quartz and granite when they’re at their best, to help the customer select the perfect match. “When we opened, there was a feeling in the community that you had to travel to New Jersey to get the best prices on granite,” Mr. Kwadrat confides. “Baruch Hashem, in eight years of service, we have busted that myth and gained Monsey’s trust. Royal Granite and Tile is famous for our fair pricing.” While newcomers to the industry may sell inferior materials at bargain prices, Royal’s experienced buyers offer their customers only high-quality quartz from reputable sources, yet still manage to keep pricing reasonable. Customers can view slabs in the showroom, or go to the yard to see even larger blocks of natural stone. Royal Granite also constantly emails photos of differently colored quartz to their clients. “Don’t think that you’re paying more just because we speak Yiddish too, and don’t think that you’re not getting great quality because we don’t charge top dollar,” quips the owner. In fact, builders and architects of some of Monsey’s larger residential projects have turned to Royal Granite for their counter and tile supplies. It’s the voice of experience that makes all the difference when it comes to your project. “We sometimes get frantic calls from people who have ordered their granite elsewhere, but didn’t realize that their sinks and faucets and cabinets had to be ready before the countertop was fitted,” says Mr. Kwadrat. “Our clients, on the other hand, save money and avoid mistakes and delays because we accompany them throughout the process, from design to completion.” A few years ago, Mr. Kwadrat and his partners noticed an interesting trend. Customers who came in to purchase bathroom tiles were always flipping through his catalogs in search of vanity units. “There was such a great demand for vanities! I got used to people taking the catalogs home and ordering vanities for their new bathrooms from my catalogs. Others were ordering them online.” Obviously, this was not ideal. Colors and designs can vary from online images, and may not match the intended color scheme. In answer to this demand, the new Royal Granite showroom will feature an entire selection of bathroom vanities, simplifying the design process and ensuring you can pick the perfect matching tiles on-site. Next door to Electric Outlet and Lighting by Fran, the new Royal Granite and Tile showroom is well worth a visit, whether your next project is the redesign of one room or the construction of an entire complex. Let our designers help you create your new kitchen. In one stop. End of story.

92 / THE MONSEY VIEW / December 5, 2018 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

“I had a beautiful experience. The Royal Granite staff are the nicest people to deal with. We got five-star service from choosing to installation. Mr. Kwadrat knows each and every tile he sells and worked along with us, and Mrs. Kwadrat even took me to the fabrication yard to choose the actual countertop pieces. My house came out gorgeous.” Fraidy Lefkowitz, Spring Valley

“We walked into the store slightly unsure of what we wanted, but with Mr. Kwadrat’s help and willingness to make a special order, I was happy and my wife was happy. He helped us to see the whole picture and make the right decisions. It was a great experience.” David Goldberger

Satmar School Charges Village of Airmont with Religious Discrimination in Federal Lawsuit A 75-page lawsuit filed in federal court last week by Central UTA, Congregation Yetev Lev of Monsey and a group of parents charges the Village of Airmont, village officials and the Suffern Central School District with conspiring to prevent a yeshivah from opening within its borders, as part of a larger effort to discourage chassidish families from moving into the area. The Journal News reported that Central UTA has been engaged in a lengthy battle with local officials after buying a 21-acre property on Cherry Lane that most recently housed Ateres Bais Yaakov during the school year and Camp Regesh during the summer months. Since the property was purchased in August 2016, Central UTA and Congregation Yetev Lev in Monsey have unsuccessfully attempted to gain permits to erect two buildings on the campus to accommodate more students. Among the charges leveled against the village were allegations that it unfairly fined the school and that it had delayed basic approvals despite the school having passed safety inspections. The lawsuit also alleged that

the school district denied required transportation and special needs services to local children. A statement released by the mother of one special needs student at Central UTA said that the district has been both unresponsive and unhelpful. “This is all just really sad,” said the mother. “Some of the other mothers have had the same experience and simply gave up trying to get the district to help their kids.” Sean Mack, the attorney for the Village of Airmont, denied allegations of discrimination. Mack issued a statement saying that there would be no comment on the pending lawsuit, noting only, “The village is obligated to, and does, uphold and enforce the laws equally.” This is the third time since the establishment of the village that Airmont officials face a federal lawsuit accusing them of discrimination against the religious community. The village lost the first two battles of this nature, costing taxpayers several million dollars in legal fees and penalties.

Macy’s Says Goodbye to Nanuet Though it has been a part of the local landscape since the Nanuet Mall first opened in 1969, Macy’s will be closing its two-story Shops at Nanuet location in the early part of 2019. The Journal News reported that the store will start running a two- to three-month-long clearance sale in mid-January. At Home, a nationwide chain of superstores dedicated to home décor with 177 locations in 36 states, will be taking over the first-floor portion of the Macy’s store, while Macy’s will continue serving county customers at its Palisades Mall location in West Nyack. The other original anchor store of the Nanuet Mall, Sears, filed for bankruptcy earlier this year. Its Nanuet store was one of 142 Sears and Kmart locations that will be closed as the company undergoes restructuring. The Nanuet Macy’s originally opened as Bamberger’s on September 25, 1969, in a gala event, with hot air balloons floating overhead, strolling musicians serenading shoppers and puppeteers entertaining youngsters. At the store’s grand opening, small children were given the opportunity to leave impressions of their hands in the still-wet cement. The store’s name was changed from Bamberger’s to Macy’s in 1986, and when the Nanuet Mall underwent massive construction and was transformed into the Shops at Nanuet

in 2013, some of those handprints were salvaged and were joined by another row of cement handprints left by children of the construction workers who were involved in the project. Joe Farkas, founder and CEO of Metropolitan Realty Associates, which is purchasing the Macy’s location, said that he intends to preserve that slice of history which he considers to be a homage to childhood. “I would clearly never have those handprints destroyed,” said Farkas. “Whatever is there we will protect and store properly and replace after all renovation work is completed.”

Beyond the Custard

Doughnuts — the choices are endless. And while every food establishment in town boasts its specialty, nothing beats a homemade one. The authentic experience of frying doughnuts on your stovetop is an exclusive Chanukah opportunity. Treat your family to this handson experience, and while you’re at it, whip up one of the featured fillings for a super treat. Ah frylichen Chanukah! Leah Stern

December 5, 2018 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 101 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


I used to search for a new doughnut recipe each Chanukah, until I tried this one. This dough has a perfect consistency and doesn’t form air pockets, which most doughnuts have. The results are delicious, time and again. I like to put some wine into any doughnut recipe, as it helps them remain fresher. You may use water only, if wine is not available.

The Ultimate Doughnut

Yields 32 doughnuts

INGREDIENTS 7 cups flour

DIRECTIONS 1. Knead all ingredients into a smooth dough. Cover and let rise for 45 minutes. 2. Divide dough in four. 3. Divide each quarter in four.

3 T. dry yeast

4. Cut each piece in two. You should now have 32 uniform pieces of dough.

2¼ cups warm water

5. Roll each piece into a smooth ball.

½ cup white wine

6. Place on lightly floured parchment paper, cover with dish towel, and allow to rise for an additional half-hour.

½ cup sugar

7. Fry in hot oil, covered, for 2 minutes. Turn over and cook until done.

½ tsp. kosher salt

Caution: Never leave flame unattended.

½ cup oil 2 T. vanilla sugar Oil for frying

FRYING TIPS: 1. Place one 9x13 pan into another for a sturdy makeshift pot. Fill halfway with oil and allow to heat before frying. 2. Place a peeled carrot into pan to prevent smoking and to keep oil clean.

102 / THE MONSEY VIEW


TO FILL DOUGHNUTS: I use a syringe to fill doughnuts, but they can also be done with a pastry bag fitted with a small, round tip. In a pinch, even a sturdy Ziploc bag with a medium-size hole will do the job.

If you’re a peanut butter fan, you’ll most definitely go nuts over this one.

INGREDIENTS

Peanut Bliss Filling

DIRECTIONS

1 container (16 oz.) whip

1. Beat whip until stiff.

6 T. instant vanilla pudding

2. Add pudding and peanut butter and beat until until well combined.

¾ cup creamy peanut butter.

was some fifty years after the war, at a family simcha, when Reb Yisrael Meir Schwartz, z”l, a Holocaust survivor who lived his last years in Monsey, imparted a touching message that defined his existence. “Al pi halacha,” he stated, “there are four occasions when a person is mechuyav to publicly thank Hashem: upon release from prison, after overcoming a sickness or hospitalization, after crossing an ocean and upon safely passing through a desert. I have lived through all of these ordeals, so I can surely bentch gomel for all four! “As far as tefisah, there can’t be a bigger jail than the lagers from which I escaped with my life. Regarding the release from a hospital, after liberation I faced a nearly fatal illness for two years, and again came out alive! Then I crossed the ocean to America, not knowing where I was heading, but when I got here, I managed to swim against the current nevertheless and stay afloat. Finally, I settled in the midbar of Los Angeles [where he lived after the war]. You couldn’t find a bigger desert than that, so devoid of heimishkeit… “For these four reasons, I have to thank the Ribono Shel Olam over and over again…” he said emotionally.

THE MONSEY VIEW / 113


Four Primary Circumstances That Warrant Birchas Hagomel During the times of the Beis Hamikdash, when a person was saved from life-threatening danger, he was obligated to bring a Korban Todah, a symbol of his gratitude to Hakadosh Baruch Hu. Today, in lieu of the korban, we thank Hashem through the bracha of “Hagomel l’chayavim tovos, shegmalani kol tov.” These words express that even though we may not be worthy, Hashem has bestowed upon us life and survival, in a show of everlasting matnas chinam. Birchas Hagomel is customarily recited along with an aliyah to the Torah, but it is halachically sufficient to say the bracha before a minyan, even without an aliyah.

Other Times When Gomel Is Recited There is much discussion over whether or not the bracha of Hagomel is limited to the four primary circumstances requiring public hoda’ah. Today, most opinions maintain that it should be said after being saved from any danger, either with or without the Shem Hamalchus. So if one escaped a hold-up safely, got away from a wild animal on the loose or survived a fire, he probably would say Gomel. The same is true if one survived a wall falling on top of him or managed to exit a dangerous neighborhood unscathed. One common opportunity presents after travel by airplane. Even though fewer people are harmed in plane crashes than in car accidents, landing safely after flying above areas that are impossible to live in is deemed reason enough to convey appreciation. This makes international flights a reason to bentch Gomel. Of course, in the event of real danger during the flight, such as an emergency landing taking place, Gomel is

114 / THE MONSEY VIEW / December 5, 2018 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

definitely recited. When a person is involved in a traffic accident that could have caused major injury or fatality and emerges unharmed, he would certainly be required to bentch Gomel. When it comes to illness, rulings vary. Some only say the bracha if they had been bedridden to the point of danger, while others would deem the flu, high fever or pneumonia sufficient cause for bentching Gomel. After general anesthesia, even for more minor procedures such as a hernia or cataract removal, Gomel would be recited.

The Bentching of Gomel Many poignant moments have been witnessed in shul as gratified survivors of a gamut of dangerous circumstances pour forth their emotion before the Sefer Torah. “The car flipped over… it was a miracle I was unharmed,” a person who just walked away from a car accident would say. “Baruch Hashem, we all got out in


time!” another might relate, even when there was nothing left of his house. All those present in shul share in the excitement of seeing one of their “steadies” back after a prolonged hospital stay. “Amen. Mi shegmalcha kol tuv, Hu yigmalcha kol tuv selah!” comes the resounding cry in response to their heartfelt bracha. Indeed, may Hashem, in His infinite, ultimate kindness, protect all of us Yiddishe kinder from every danger and bring the ultimate yeshuah with the final Geulah when we will all be able to express our gratitude, loud and clear.

Did you know? • The bracha of Gomel is not recited when danger is averted. So if you were nearly involved in a traffic accident, or if you were supposed to be somewhere but you were not there when tragedy struck, it would not warrant the bentching of Gomel. • If you go on safari in Kenya or walk a tightrope over waterfalls, you probably would not bentch Gomel, because you intentionally put yourself into the dangerous situation. • Children do not recite Gomel, and an adult should not say it on a child’s behalf. Thus, if one’s son fell off his bunk bed, ran into the street against oncoming traffic or was saved in some other miraculous way, the father would not recite the bracha.

Personal Experiences of Thanks Rav Elyashiv, zt”l, once requested to be taught to say “todah rabbah” in English. “Why?” they asked him. He responded that he wished to thank his doctor who only spoke English. “Why bother? We can say it on your behalf!” But Rav Elyashiv insisted, repeating the words, “Thank you,” again and again until he could say them well. He later explained his reasoning. The shaliach tzibbur is motzei everyone with all brachos of Shemoneh Esrei — besides for Modim, which must be said by each individual. This shows us that when it comes to hoda’ah, it isn’t possible for one person to fulfill the obligation of another. Every person must individually express his gratitude. Modim continues with, “al she’anachnu modim lach,” which further demonstrates that a Yid must be grateful for the opportunity to thank Hashem in the first place! Hashem yearns for our gratitude, and by thanking Him, we prompt Hashem to give us more reasons to show appreciation. Here we present you with a few personal recollections from people who have recognized the good in their situations, transforming it into a harbinger for further nissim and yeshuos.

• Because of its public nature, women do not recite Gomel. In Yerushalayim, there is a minhag for women to bentch Gomel after birth, since that is a time when she would be required to bring a korban. Many Yerushalmi women find making the bracha before a minyan the hardest part of the ordeal!

excitement, disbelief, astonishment — it felt like a fantasy or novel unraveling before our very eyes. Where were you when you heard that Rabbi Rubashkin was released? Yes, this was breaking news with an impact, the kind that leaves you to reminisce about just when and where you were when you heard it. Approaching the first anniversary of the momentous day, we took the opportunity to speak with the Rubashkin family for an inside glimpse.

The Zos Chanukah Miracle

Wherever Rabbi Rubashkin goes, Yidden of all spectrums pine to hear his words of chizuk and share in the wondrous miracle. What were some of the words of hoda’ah that Reb Sholom Mordechai expressed? The first thank you to the Eibishter upon his release was expressed in the warden’s office, when Sholom Mordechai was told of the astounding developments. “Hodu l’Hashem ki tov!” were the first words that came out of his mouth. As the night progressed, expressions of gratitude to Hashem continued, in a little speech in Monsey, then in Boro Park, once again at 770 in Crown Heights, and finally at the Ohel of the Lubavitcher Rebbe. In truth, his words of hoda’ah are still being heard. At every speaking engagement for adults and for children, Reb Sholom Mordechai continues to share the miracle, thanking Hashem again and again. Did Rabbi Rubashkin bentch Gomel? Is there anything momentous you can tell us about the seudas hoda’ah? On the morning following his release — on Thursday — Sholom Mordechai bentched Gomel at 770. Many Yidden came to see and hear, to share in the miracle up close. We can’t count how many seudos hoda’ah there were. There was a seudah the night following his release and quite a few smaller seudos took place over the next few days. We are actually hoping to have a large kinos hoda’ah thanking Hashem on Zos Chanukah, the first anniversary of the miracle. The public was part of the tzarah and a big part of the simcha. Naturally, the public will be invited to take part in the hoda’ah. (See details below.) Can you point out any specific nissim, situations where Yad Hashem was visible despite the tzarah, and how it garnered appreciation? The sequence by which Sholom Mordechai was released is pretty known to the public. Extraordinarily unique, it became a mantra — Aleph, beis, gimmel, an acronym for Emunah, Bitachon, Geulah. This was a message our family lived with all these years. It actually began some ten years earlier, back when Sholom Mordechai was sitting in the county jail in Iowa, pending bail. At a hearing on aleph Shevat, having been denied bail, all

116 / THE MONSEY VIEW


seemed dismal, yet the court overruled the order on beis Shevat. And on gimmel Shevat, he was set free. That was in 2009. Then, nine years minus one month later, at the beginning of Teves, Hashem followed the same sequence. On aleph Teves, Sholom Mordechai received an envelope from the appeals court. It stated that the court had denied the last possible appeal. It seemed there was no further legal remedy; they had exhausted all avenues. In essence, this meant that the battle was over. He would need to sit for another eighteen years or so. In a remarkable twist, on the following day, beis Teves — Zos Chanukah — Sholom Mordechai was summoned to the warden’s office with the unanticipated revelation. And in a blink, as gimmel Teves began, he was out — a free man. These were the first thoughts that filled Sholom Mordechai’s mind… Just one day earlier, all seemed impossible, and then… It was as if Hashem was saying, “Watch this! I can take care of My child and free him!” Hodu l’Hashem ki tov!

Perhaps it isn’t a coincidence that Rabbi Rubashkin was so quickly and unexpectedly released on Zos Chanukah. While it could have happened any other day of the year, this served to highlight the potency of these special days. Let us capitalize on this bright treasure in our reach. Join R’ Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin as he relives the neis of Zos Chanukah 5778 alongside Avraham Fried, Avremi G. and the Shira Choir. The kinos hoda’ah will take place on Zos Chanukah, December 9, in Brooklyn. The men’s event will be at Ulam Hagadol at 4217 New Utrecht Ave., and the women’s event will take place at Gan Yisroel at 13 Church Ave. Doors open at 7:30 p.m.

she’bechol yom imanu. We leave our homes and send our children out on a daily basis and expect everyone to arrive home, safe and sound, just the way they left. Every so often, the Ribono Shel Olam, in His everlasting kindness to us, orchestrates details to create show-stopping nissim that remind us of just how many miracles surround us constantly. Ki malachav yetzaveh lach lishmarcha b’chol derachecha!

A CalamityFree Collision

JUST MOMENTS after Mrs. Grunfeld* told her babysitter that she would be home within two minutes, she was involved in a car crash, and was all the more grateful that she actually did make it home, safe and sound.

118 / THE MONSEY VIEW

Can you give us some background of what happened? It was close to midnight, and we were on our way back to Monsey from a chasunah in the city. Actually, we were already in Monsey, driving down Herrick Avenue. Suddenly, we noticed a car turning in from Stephens Place, at quite a high speed. We all saw the car coming at us, but it was too late to move out of the way. The crash was inevitable. There was a loud bang. Then there was silence. The car filled up with white powder (from the air bags). We were all thrown off our seats and pinned into various corners of the car. It was deathly quiet. No one moved. After a few moments, I called out, “I’m okay. Is everyone okay?” I was holding my breath. I had no idea if the others were badly hurt or if they were even alive. I was particularly worried for the front-seat passengers. One by one, the others called out that they were alright. “Quick! Let’s get out!” We were afraid the car might burst into flames. We all crawled out through the doors of the twisted vehicle. There was shattered glass all over. When we looked at the minivan

from outside, banged up beyond recognition, we could hardly believe that not only had we all survived such a terrible wreck, but also that none of us were badly hurt!

Did your husband bentch Gomel? How did you mark the occasion? Of course he did. The accident happened on a Wednesday night. The following morning, my husband bentched Gomel. Throughout that day, and over the next few days that followed, we could not stop thinking of and thanking Hashem for this major neis. It was hard to sleep or eat or focus on anything else. We were all grateful for life itself! Just being alive was a privilege! On the next Rosh Chodesh, the extended family gathered for a siyum and seudas hoda’ah. The accident deeply affected all of us. On that fateful night, there had been many branches of our family in the car — two couples, one married sister and another sister who was then a kallah. It felt so good to be sitting together, healthy and happy, a whole family. Passing the site of the miracle evokes feelings of gratitude all over again. Each time I remember, “Baruch she’asah li neis b’makom hazeh!” Any meaningful aspects of the miracle to highlight? One of my first reactions, after discovering that all of us passengers were well, was that “shluchei mitzvah einan nizukin.” We had made the effort to participate in a chasunah simply to wish our aunt, the grandmother of the chasan, mazel tov. Despite the precious time it cost us, we all felt it was worthwhile when we saw the smile we had brought to her face. And even those minor blackand-blue marks that we got were a source of gratitude, as they marked the warm memory of Hashem’s love and chesed to us.

building his sukkah, Mr. Weiss, a 35-year-old father of six, lost his balance and fell off his second-floor porch. Despite the dire prognosis, he got back on his feet in no time, singing the praises of Hakadosh Baruch Hu all the while. Ki nafalti kamti.

Rise or Fall?

Can you tell us what happened? Honestly, I don’t really know! One second I was standing on a ladder on my porch, with a drill in my hand, and the next thing I knew I was flat on my back on the grass below. I was too shocked and too weak to even call out for help. It took a good few minutes before anyone realized what had happened. By the time Hatzolah was called, I was already more alert and joked with the volunteers, even though the pain was excruciating and I couldn’t move. I think they appreciated my wit!

120 / THE MONSEY VIEW

What were your thoughts? The first thing I remember thinking was how lucky I was that I was aware of my surroundings. It meant that I was really alive! I actually did not lose consciousness throughout the ordeal. It was such a bracha. The siyata d’Shmaya that followed us throughout the parsha was so obvious that it was impossible not to keep thanking Hashem even during such a difficult situation. That day, I was taken in for emergency surgery on my spine. It was a delicate procedure and took many hours. The doctors warned us that the recovery process would take months and would require a lot of physical therapy. They wouldn’t even promise that I would regain the ability to walk! Lo and behold, just three months later, I was already on my feet, home from the rehab! The recovery was so quick and amazing. I was very grateful for the

support of my family and friends. During the first few weeks, when I was in the hospital, they stayed by my bedside round the clock. They kept my mind occupied and learned with me to distract me from the pain.

How did you commemorate your recovery? I did so in many ways. The first time I went back to shul, I bentched Gomel. You cannot imagine the level of emotion in the room. Everyone was genuinely excited to see me. The exhilaration we all felt as I limped over to the bimah is indescribable. The Rav of our shul arranged a seudas hoda’ah for the steady mispallelim. Many of them had been involved in the hospital shifts, and all of them had davened for my recovery. My chaburah made a seudah as well, and, of course, we had one for our extended family, too. Any parting words? People stare at me when I walk down the streets, still with a limp. But it doesn’t bother me much. I feel like I am a walking demonstration of Hashem’s boundless chesed! Just recently, I was walking with my son, and he pointed out the interesting colors of the sky. It was just before rain, and there was literally a bright silver lining shining from behind the clouds. I took the opportunity to discuss the concept with him and we reminisced together over some of the brightest moments during our time of difficulty. My fall was hard on my kids, and it felt good to be able to look back and actually express the love Hashem showed us. Yes, even during the most challenging times, with the right pair of glasses, it is possible to spot the light and feel His warmth!

in a frenzy, those red and orange tongues of fire, against the black backdrop of night. And as the last flickers were doused, smoldering burnt ashes were sole evidence of the merciless fiery dance. Sole? Well, not really! The glowing embers of acceptance and appreciation are the true triumphs of the blaze, and they continue to shine bright. As flames engulfed their home, the Golds* were overwhelmed with gratitude that everyone was safe. Allow yourself to sense some of the searing emotions of the nisayon and the neis.

Glowing Embers 122 / THE MONSEY VIEW

Can you tell us about the fire? It was a hectic time of year, shortly after Sukkos, on a Sunday night. My boys were dorming in yeshivah, but two of my children, as well as a young bachur who lived with us, were sleeping home. We also had two toddler-aged grandchildren over. That night, I headed to bed early. That was unusual for a Sunday, because at the time, there was a shiur in my basement every Sunday evening. After the shiur the women would linger, schmoozing, until as late as 11:30 p.m. — or even after that. I used to wait up so I could lock the house after they left. But this week was different. Somehow, by 10:45 p.m., all the shiur attendees had left, and I was able to lock up and go to bed. I was happy, because I was particularly exhausted. This in itself was a neis — the basement was empty. Under normal circumstances there still would have been people there who’d possibly have a hard time getting out. It must have been a few minutes after falling asleep that I vaguely heard the smoke alarm. I didn’t even get out of bed to check if everything was okay. After all, every so often, the alarm would ring… Just then, my daughter, who had been at a classmate’s simcha, came home. She ran in, yelling, “Mommy! There’s a fire!” My husband went to the front of the house to check if it was safe for us to go out. He heard crackling and glass breaking. I grabbed one grandchild and my daughter grabbed the other. We called my son and ran out. Standing outside, we suddenly remembered. Yossi! Where was he? The bachur who slept downstairs in our basement… We ran over to the window of his bedroom and we could see that the fire had already caught on to the edge of his bed. We couldn’t get to ourselves! Was he okay?! There was no way we could go inside… By that time, many people were coming,


though there were no fire engines in sight yet. Suddenly, we saw Yossi! He was walking toward us from the other side of the house. “I’m here! I’m okay!” he shouted. When Yossi had noticed the fire, he had dashed for the basement door, but it had been jammed. After banging and trying to get the door open by force, he’d finally managed to break the knob open using scissors.

What was your initial reaction to the devastation? First came the shrek, the fear, as we agonized over Yossi… How would I face his parents?! As soon as we saw him come out alive and fine, nothing mattered anymore. The entire house went. We were left with practically nothing but the nightclothes on our backs, but I couldn’t care. Everyone was alive! Nobody was hurt! I was so thankful, so grateful. How did you celebrate the great nissim? The morning after the fire, we had nothing, not even a sock or shirt to our name, but baruch Hashem, we lived to tell the tale! On Chanukah, we made a seudas hoda’ah for the family. Every year, when Sunday Parshas Vayeira, rolls around, we remember the neis and thank Hashem again, without any official “parties.”

Flakes may be falling while latkes are frying — but we pray that isn’t happening in the same pan. Yet in my house, that scenario almost played out...

December 5, 2018 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 127 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


After a decade of stir-frying, hash brown–making and egg-scrambling, my pans began to peel. Pieces of black Teflon chipped off, peppering even non-peppered food that inevitably worked its way to the garbage, its cook looking on in disgust. This can’t be healthy, I thought, promising myself I’d purchase new cookery. And so the hunt for the perfect pan began. But with so many makes and models to choose from, I was in a bit of a quandary. To narrow down my list I set two criteria: The pans I purchased must be both affordable and of the least threat to health.

TEFLON-COATED Starting at my previous ending point, I decided to poke my nose into the topic of Teflon to find out exactly what those flakes on my now-trashed pans had been all about. What I found wasn’t pretty. A preliminary search led me to a rather wishy-washy statement put forth by the American Cancer Society (ACS), which states:

Other than the possible risk of flu-like symptoms from breathing in fumes from an overheated Teflon-coated pan, there are no known risks to humans from using Teflon-coated cookware. While PFOA is used in making Teflon, it is not present (or is present in extremely small amounts) in Teflon-coated products. Because the routes by which people may be exposed to PFOA are not known, it is unclear what steps people might take to reduce their exposure. According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), people whose regular source of drink128 / THE MONSEY VIEW / December 5, 2018 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

ing water is found to have higher than normal levels of PFOA or similar chemicals might consider using bottled water or installing activated carbon water filters. Never having been one to take statements at facevalue, I decided to dig further. PFOA (perfluorooctanoic acid), the chemical referenced by the ACS, is a soap-like powder that was used for smoothing lumps from Dupont’s product, Teflon, for many decades. While commonly associated with non-stick pans, Teflon has also been used in many other applications, such as in the coating of lightbulbs, in furniture protectants, or in certain cosmetics and food packaging. Due to ease of cleanup, Teflon-coated pans have held prime reality in

the cupboards of millions for quite a long time, and that doesn’t appear to be a very good thing at all — though we probably wouldn’t know that little secret had it not been for a herd of cows. Early in the 1980s, farmer Wilbur Tennant witnessed a drastic change in his cattle shortly after selling 66 acres of his Parkersburg, West Virginia, property to the Dupont company to be used as a chemical landfill. A creek running through Dupont’s portion trickled into a field where Tennant’s cows were pastured. Within weeks, the cows that had been as loving as pets to the Tennants began acting deranged, salivating heavily, charging the farmers and taking a downhill turn in health. One by one the cattle began to die, but only after suffering terribly and in unnatural manners. Dissection of the affected cattle revealed enlarged organs tinted chemicalblue and hues of bright green. William Tennant reached out to local lawyers to sue Dupont for poisoning his cattle, but none of them agreed to accept a battle they deemed to be doomed. Not only that, but most of Parkersburg felt indebted to the chemical company in some capacity, as the local infrastructure was largely based around the factory and the jobs it provided. In the face of local rejection, Tennant looked beyond his town’s borders and hit gold when he contacted Rob Billot, an environmental lawyer who was usually charged with representing big name companies instead of filing against them. Looking at the pictures of the deformed dead or dying cows, however, left Rob Billot mad, angry that water that was also being consumed by humans was being so obviously poisoned by chemical giant Dupont. Billot prepared for battle. And what a battle it was! Throughout the years Dupont hoarded numerous private research studies on PFOA — known to Dupont as C-8 — conducted by both Dupont and its supplier of C-8, the company 3M, while employees were repeatedly reassured that the chemical was of no concern. This was despite “Teflon flu” that frequently affected workers, causing flu-like symptoms; high death-rates of test animals; and frequent, varied cancers among workers. To make matters worse, two out of seven babies born to women who worked with Teflon were affected with severe facial malformations. One of the mothers of the affected children later related that Dupont’s on-staff doctor called to question her about the health of her newborn child. He specifically asked if there were any

TOXIC LETTERS PFAS: Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a group of chemicals that includes PFOA, PFOS and GenX, as well as thousands of other chemicals PTFE: A chemical commonly known by the brand name Teflon. Companies other than Dupont also use this chemical, but are not allowed to call it “Teflon.” PFOA: Perfluorooctanoic acid, a chemical used in the manufacture of Teflon by Dupont until 2013 C-8: The pet name given to PFOA by Dupont GenX: C-8 replacement chemical currently used in Teflon production deformities, but then parried any suspicions about C-8’s involvement. Later that week all female employees were barred from further working in the Teflon division. Internal documents later released under court order showed that C-8 had been suspect by Dupont as being a highly toxic chemical since at least 1954, with confirmation of that suspicion reached by at least 1961. Aside from the immediate threat to workers coming into close

contact with the chemical, Dupont continuously allowed C-8-tainted fumes to be released through smokestacks and also disposed of the chemical in unlined landfills and near rivers, allowing for soil and water absorption of the toxin. Barrels of illegally dumped C-8 were even netted by fishermen in the open sea. Memos from Dupont executives revealed that methods of reducing pollutants from entering the environment had been up for discussion at one point, yet these methods were deemed not “economically attractive.” With Billot knee-deep in incriminating documents, Dupont fought back aggressively behind the scenes, filing for gag orders which were (thankfully) overturned, and even convincing West Virginia to change the legally acceptable parts per billion of C-8 exposure from their own originally recommended maximum of 1 part per billion to a mind-blowing 150 parts per billion. Toxicologists who were unaffiliated with Dupont, on the other hand, set the max safety exposure level at only 0.2 parts per billion! According to a peer-reviewed study, Dupont had dumped nearly 2.5 million pounds of C-8 into the area surrounding its West Virginia plant by year 2003. Workers, their family and other folks in nearby towns were falling ill with both documented diseases and mysterious ailments. And yet, in what may be one of the least-hilarious jokes of the century, Jim Forte, Dupont’s marketing manager, was quoted in a 1993 article (right in the midst of Billot’s investigations) as saying, “Consumers like it as much for the convenience of ease of cleaning as for the health aspect, that you can use less fat.” Ultimately, Dupont settled with Wilbur Tennant outside of court for an undisclosed amount in 2001, but that was only the beginning. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) filed a lawsuit against Dupont for concealing the known dangers of C-8. Dupont settled with the EPA for a total of $16.5 million in 2015. EPA, itself, launched investigations on the chemical’s toxicity and was alarmed to find that the blood of an average American adult contains four-to-five parts per billion of PFOA. In fact, a 2007 analysis done by the CDC revealed that 99.7 percent of Americans have the chemical in their blood, and that even newborns now carry PFOA in their bodies. Nearly impossible to biodegrade, PFOA was found to be building up in the world rather than breaking down. Prevalence of this chemical is now so widespread that animals as far as Antarctica have been found to have PFOA in

their blood. EPA findings were released in 2002, in which they suggested that PFOA may not only prove dangerous to those drinking contaminated water, but also to the general public who’ve used Teflon pans. While all of these findings were coming to light, Dupont continued to hide its head in the sand, refusing to take blame and actually increasing Teflon production. And in a particularly devious act, Dupont created a spin-off company, Chemours, in 2015 to continue manufacturing Teflon, with the world being none the wiser, and to hopefully limit the amount of compensation that they assumed would be demanded by area residents affected by C-8. IN THE END, Dupont announced in 2017 that it would pay up to $921 million to the roughly 3,550 plaintiffs severely affected by the release of C-8 into the area near its West Virginia factory. And 3M, Dupont’s supplier of PFOA, has reached a $850 million settlement with the state of Minnesota, where the chemical was manufactured, to be devoted to cleaning up the state’s chemically-polluted water system, a process which will be neither quick nor easy. Sadly, both Wilbur Tennant and his wife died of cancer — likely a result of living near the Dupont factory — before seeing how their cows impacted the world. Nowadays, the Teflon formula has been modified to be PFOA-free, but the new chemical replacements they use have been denounced as well by over 200 scientists in a 2015 document called the Madrid Statement. Hero Rob Billot, the lawyer who beat Dupont from its haughty horse in regard to C-8, has now — as of October 2018 — filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of all Americans who have these potentially dangerous chemicals (PFAS) in their blood. Instead of a cash payout, he is seeking the establishment of a scientific team who will intensively study the entire body of chemicals and their effects on humankind and the environment. When previously confronted about the safety of these new chemicals, Chemours (aka Dupont-indisguise) proclaimed that “a significant body of data demonstrates that these

DON'T BE FOOLED! It’s easy to get excited over the words “enameled” or “porcelain enamel,” but it’s also easy to be tricked into buying something you’d really rather not. A neighbor sent over a new pan she’d bought bearing those words, but upon further inspection we realized that the enamel coating was only on the exterior. The interior? Teflon!

alternative chemistries can be used safely.” Since the lawsuit was filed, however, Dupont/Chemours has refrained from issuing a statement. As for me taking a chance with the new generation of Teflon, I think I’ll pass. Because as they say: Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

CAST IRON Like any modern housewife, the thought of perfect grill marks on chicken and veggies enticed me, and in my quest for the best cooking ware, a grill pan was near the top of my list. With Teflon-coated pans obviously out of the running, cast iron seemed the most obvious choice. Unlike most of the non-stick stuff, cast iron is a surface that needs some tender-loving care, but for that bit of effort, you earn a pan with few health concerns. In some ways, cast iron is actually an aide to good health.


Hey Sarah, how's the wedding planning going? Crash dieting, but still have stubborn fat. Ugh...

That’s because iron from the pan is absorbed into the food being cooked, and for most of us, that’s great. Our bodies need the iron. Some people, though, need to be stringent with their iron intake, such as those who have a metabolic disorder that causes them to have an overload of iron in their bodies. Adult men and middle-aged women generally require less iron than children and younger women, so they, too, should not overuse cast iron products. Rotating between various safe cooking ware is recommended. It should also be noted that acidic foods, such as tomatoes, vinegar or apples, also drastically increase the amount of iron being absorbed. And a new pan, just barely seasoned, will leach more iron into food than a well-seasoned one. That brings us to the glitch in the system: preseasoning. In order for cast iron pans to do their job, they need to be “seasoned.” That means they need to be heated and coated with oil from time to time to prevent rusting and deterioration of the pan. Unfortunately, for cast iron–pan hunters like myself, the days of kosher cast iron seem to be over. Once upon a time, a customer would purchase a cast iron pan and set about seasoning it herself. Now, in the easy-life generation, manufacturers have switched over to offering “pre-seasoned” pans. Up until a few years ago, the company Lodge used OU-certified kosher oils to season their pans, but they’ve since switched to a non-kosher soybean oil for pre-seasoning. Other companies pre-season with grapeseed, while some prefer lard. Because of this, cast iron cookery currently presents difficult questions. There are various opinions of how to kasher it, or if one may kasher a pre-seasoned pan at all. The best option is to consult your local rav. As for myself, I’ll wait for (and applaud!) the enterprising Yid who will decide to bring non-seasoned cast iron cookery to our community. Though I felt pretty sad that I’d have to currently forgo my cast iron grill pan, it was time to move on, with the additional criteria of finding a pan that’s kosher l’chol ha’deos…

STAINLESS STEEL Stainless steel is a timeless kitchen essential, and for good reason. High-quality stainless steel can be a healthy choice of cooking ware. The key to successfully using stainless steel is understanding how to safely use it. These are some tips I’ve come across: • Stainless steel pans come with a grading. The

safest grades are types 304 or 430. The difference is in how much chromium and nickel the pot contains. Type 304 contains 18% chromium and 8–10% nickel (represented by the numbers 18/8 and 18/10). Type 430 contains only 0.75% nickel and is most suitable for those who have a nickel sensitivity. The downside of lower nickel content is that the pan is more susceptible to corrosion. • Because the human body needs only traces of nickel and chromium, we don’t want those leaching into our food. In test studies, however, new stainless steel pans were shown to leach both metals at pretty high concentrations when acidic foods were cooked in them. Leaching became less after the tenth round of cooking, though acidic foods did encourage leaching in even older cookware. It is recommended that new pots be washed well and then boiled with a water/vinegar combo multiple times before use. Acidic food is best not cooked in stainless steel. Considering that I’ve got plenty of good-quality stainless steel pots nestled in my cabinets, I’m not interested in buying more of them to replace the Teflon pans. But we’re certainly getting closer to the winning choice…

GLASS, CERAMIC AND GLASS-CERAMIC COMBOS Over and over again I’ve seen that glass (think Pyrex) is the absolute safest way to cook food, especially if you want to make something with high acidity, such as tomato sauce. But how do you use glass on a stovetop? I wondered. Then I (re)discovered CorningWare, which is a glassceramic combination. (And had flashbacks to watching rice bubble in in an amber pot as a small child.) Well, that solves the glass-on-the-range issue... Unless, of course, doughnuts are on the menu. Only water-based foods can be cooked in Corningware or you risk shattering the glass in a potentially dangerous situation. Ceramics, like glass, are made from natural materials and also get a big thumbs-up. But to ensure safety, care must be taken to check before purchase that all glass, ceramic and combo cookware are lead- and cad-

FLYING UNDER THE RADAR Somehow, the fact that bird owners have known for years about Teflon’s toxicity just slipped under the radar. They’ve known all along that owning a Teflon pan means risking a dead bird...

mium-free, which low-end manufacturers may use in the making of their products. As with all types of pots, it seems that buying from a reputable maker is the way to go. Xtrema seems to be the most esteemed ceramics company out there, though the prices are a bit too Xtrema for my personal taste.

AND THE WINNER IS? Truth be told, this quest for the perfect pan has been quite upsetting, mostly because of Dupont’s nasty secret, but also because my lost dream of owning a cast iron grill pan ached as well… But that ache faded when I found that cast iron comes in an enamel-coated version! These awesome inventions have the heat-retention capabilities of cast iron, but require no seasoning as they are coated with enamel, a glass-based glaze that also stops the iron from reacting to acidic foods and makes clean-up a breeze. A real win-win! Enameled cast iron comes in the forms of skillets, grill pans, and the uber-awesome Dutch oven, which can go from range to oven to broiler and back again. Cooking, baking and frying — all in one pot! (No grill marks, though.) The La Creuset brand is said to last indefinitely and be of the highest quality, but I’ve wound my way back around to the Lodge brand, which actually produces enameled cast iron pans in addition to their pre-seasoned ones. I haven’t yet found a currently available grill pan from their company, so for that I’d try the brand Tramontina, which also looks amazing. While La Creuset runs in the several-hundreds-ofdollars-per-pan range, Lodge and Tramontina won’t require me to take out an additional mortgage to cover the cost…

WHAT IT ALL BOILS DOWN TO When all’s said and done, the Lodge enameled cast iron Dutch oven speaks loudest because of its low threat to health, affordable pricing, lack of kashrus issues and the added ability to do just about all. If I’m going to invest in only one pot for now, this is the one. It looks like Dutch doughnuts this year! Disclaimer to avoid potential misconception: Ruchy Reese is a regular housewife who has used Teflon, disposable pans and plastic dishes just a bit too often. And though Teflon has been discharged from duty and “bekelech” will be replaced with Pyrex more often than not, there’s no promise that plastic won’t make it’s appearance at hectic moments. Likewise, MSG-seasoned snacks and sugary candies will continue delighting her children on Shabbos and special occasions, because it is her belief that mental health and happiness should be balanced with the sechel’dig pursuit of physical health. She encourages others to only take upon themselves doable life changes, dependent upon their own unique circumstances.

136 / THE MONSEY VIEW / December 5, 2018 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

PERHAPS NOT PRACTICAL A heavy Dutch oven might not be the best solution for scrambled eggs. When it comes to skillets, I’ll be sticking with stainless steel. I also bought a Greenpan non-stick frying pan, which is officially considered non-toxic. I can’t say my full faith is in it, but it’ll be used occasionally.

Designed by Craft It

There’s something about Chanukah-themed crafts that excite children at this time of year. Perler bead crafting is a fun and relaxing activity for all ages. It keeps children happily occupied as they select just the perfect shade of each color, and they get to enjoy the fruits of their labor almost instantly. And since most homes are stocked with Perler beads, parchment paper and an iron, no major preparation is needed. Here are some adorable patterns for Chanukah that go well with standard Perler pegboards. Older children can simply follow the patterns, and younger children can cut out the pattern and place it underneath a clear Perler pegboard so they can easily create the design.

DREIDELS This uses the Perler heart-shaped board. Two dreidels fit onto each board. You can experiment with a nun and hei, too, both of which are simple to form with beads.

HALACHOS AND MINHAGIM OF CHANUK AH PART 2

Using and benefiting from the lights One is not allowed to use and benefit from the Chanukah lights.1 Several reasons are given for this: 1) Because of bizui mitzvah.2 2) Because it will look like one lit it for his own use and not for the mitzvah.3 3) Since the miracle happened with the Menorah of the Beis Hamikdash, the din is like the light of the Beis Hamikdash, which one may not use.4 Therefore, the minhag is to have a shamash so that if one makes use of the light of the menorah, it will be the light of the shamash, which is kept higher.5 Today, if electric lights are on, one need not worry, since one is using those lights. However, even with our electric lights, there is still an idea to light the shamash according to Kabbalah.6 Working while the neiros are burning The minhag is for women to refrain from working for the first halfhour that the neiros are burning.7 One reason is so that it should be a reminder that they are not allowed to use the light for other purposes.8 Another reason is so that they shouldn’t have hesech hadaas from the neis.9 Though in some places men also refrain from work,10 according to many opinions, this minhag was only taken on by women because the neis happened through a woman. Yehudis, the daughter of Yochanan the Kohen Gadol, was taken captive. She fed the leader of the enemy

156 / THE MONSEY VIEW / December 5, 2018 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

dairy, which made him thirsty. This caused him to drink a lot and become drunk; when he dozed off, she beheaded him, and the rest of the enemy camp fled.11 According to most poskim, the type of melacha that women refrain from is the same as the type of melacha we refrain from performing on Chol Hamoed. So women can cook and bake, but shouldn’t wash clothing, sew, etc. Also, tasks that require a lot of physical exertion, like washing the floor, should be avoided.12 In some places, though, women are noheg not to do any melacha at all — even cooking and baking — because it may cause hesech hadaas from the neis.13 Moving the lights One should not move the lights after they are lit for the duration of a half-hour because then it will look like it was lit for one’s own use and not for the mitzvah.14 According to some opinions this halacha applies even after the first half-hour.15 Therefore one should make sure to place the lights in a safe place and away from kids at the time of lighting so that one shouldn’t have to move it later. In a case where one didn’t do so and there is a real need to move it, for example to keep it away from children or because of chashash of fire, chas v’shalom, one may move it.16 Sitting by the lights after lighting Even though there is no obligation to sit by the lights after the lighting, many have the minhag to sit by

the lights for a half-hour. The Yesod V’shoresh Ha’avodah says that at this time, one should sing songs of praise (such as Maoz Tzur) to Hashem and speak about the nissim that happened, especially to one’s children.17 The Imrei Pinchas learns that there is an idea to look at the lights from both the nusach of Haneiros Halalu (where we say that we are not allowed to use them but only look at them) and also from the fact that the halacha requires one who does not light, but only sees the lights, to make a bracha on them.18 The deeper reason behind this is as follows: It is brought that the ohr haganuz, through which Adam Harishon saw from one end of the world to the other, and which Hashem concealed for the tzaddikim for the future, is revealed in the Chanukah lights. This is one reason that we light 36 lights during Chanukah — to correspond to the 36 hours that the ohr haganuz was around before it was hidden away.19 Therefore, some have the minhag to look at the lights after lighting them and bask in the ohr haganuz that is revealed on Chanukah.20 Reciting Al Hanissim On all eight days of Chanukah, Al Hanissim is recited in birchas ha’aretz in Birchas Hamazon and after Modim in Shemoneh Esrei.21 It is not said in Al Hamichyah because its recitation is only a minhag, which was only taken on with regard to Birchas Hamazon.22 One who forgets to say Al Hanis-


sim in Birchas Hamazon should only go back and say it if he realized before saying Hashem’s name at the end of the bracha — but if he remembered after saying Hashem’s name, he should not go back. In such a case, when one reaches Harachaman, it is good to say “Harachaman Hu yaaseh lanu nissim v’niflaos keshem she’asisah laavoseinu bayamim haheim bazman hazeh… Bimei Matisyahu... ” and continue with the rest of Al Hanissim from there.23 On Rosh Chodesh, one should say this only after the Harachaman of Rosh Chodesh, because Rosh Chodesh is a 1 See Shulchan Aruch 673:1 where he paskens that even tashmish kedushah is assur and brings as “yesh” the opinion that tashmish kedushah is muttar (see Biur Halacha there the machlokes achronim if this is also true of tashmish keva or not).

more common occurrence.24 One who forgot to say Al Hanissim in Shemoneh Esrei should go back and say it if he still hasn’t said Hashem’s name in the bracha of hatov shimcha; if he has already said Hashem’s name, he should not go back. In this case, one may add it at the end of Shemoneh Esrei after Elokai Netzor but before Yihyu L’ratazon.25 If one forgot it then, too, he can say it after Yihyu L’ratzon but before taking three steps backward.26 If he forgot to say it even after taking three steps back, he should not go back to say it.

Compiled by: Hadassah Steinman

The number seven symbolizes that which is natural. Hashem created the world — which represents teiva — in seven days. Similarly, there are the seven heavens and the seven years of shemitah, each a phenomenon that also represent teiva. The number eight reaches one level above that, and symbolizes that which is l’maaleh min hateiva. Thus, while seven symbolizes perfection, eight symbolizes a level even higher than that.

TAKE A CLOSE LOOK AT THE THESE EQUATIONS. DO YOU SEE THE PATTERNS?

The eight days of Chanukah reflect the yom tov’s essence of transcending teiva, because the neis of Chanukah defied all logic. Remarkably, the word Chashmonaim contains both the letter ches and the word “shemoneh”!

1,234 × 8 + 4 = 9,876

1×8+1=9 12 × 8 + 2 = 98 123 × 8 + 3 = 987 12,345 × 8 + 5 = 98,765 123,456 × 8 + 6 = 987,654 1,234,567 × 8 + 7 = 9,876,543 12,345,678 × 8 + 8 = 98,765,432

SEVERAL EXAMPLES OF THE SIGNIFICANCE OF NUMBER EIGHT:

123,456,789 × 8 + 9 = 987,654,321

A bris milah symbolizes the bris between Hashem and the Yidden, a covenant that supersedes teiva, hence the significance of the eight days before milah. Also, since the passing of eight days means that there will be a Shabbos before the bris, this, as well, elevates the mitzvah to the next level.

9 x 9 + 7 = 88

There are seven notes of music today, also reflecting the “complete” seven. However, the Gemara says that while the kinor in the Beis Hamikdash had seven strings, during Yemos HaMoshiach, the kinor will have eight strings, and a complete musical scale will include eight notes. This is the reflected in the words “Lamnatzei’ach al hashminis...”

98 x 9 + 6 = 888 987 x 9 + 5 = 8,888 9876 x 9 + 4 = 88,888 98765 x 9 + 3 = 888,888 987654 x 9 + 2 = 8,888,888 9876543 x 9 + 1 = 88,888,888 98765432 x 9 + 0 = 888,888,888

In Lashon Hakodesh, the word “‫( ”שמונה‬eight) shares its root with the word “‫( ”שמן‬oil), which also symbolizes elevation. Indeed, oil was used on the klei sha’res in the Beis Hamikdash, and also to anoint the king and the Kohen Gadol, elevating each of them to the next level.

Have you ever wondered why the word “eight” has the silent “gh”? Of course, the number eight in Yiddish is pronounced “acht,” with the guttural “h” sound, but this etymology can be traced all the way to Lashon Hakodesh — in the aleph-beis, it is the ‫ ח‬that has the numeric value of eight. As we all know, “oct-” is the word root indicating the number eight. An octant is an eighth of a circle, an octet is a group of eight singers or instruments, and a word that is octosyllabic has eight syllables. An octogenarian is lucky enough to have witnessed eight decades, an octarchy is a government ruled by eight people, and the number octillion follows the pattern of million, billion, trillion, and so on, and has 27 zeros. Go on, count them! 158 / THE MONSEY VIEW / December 5, 2018 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

A week later

As the manager of the competing factory, Tom stole money from Sapir Chocolate Factory and used the money to fund missionary activities.

Order in the court!

Suspect number 325, Mr. Tom, as well as all of his associates, both here and internationally, have been found guilty of embezzlement and of transferring money to illegal entities.

We are acquitting Gavriel. He discovered the deception a year and half ago, and when he looked for proof, he found that the plot ran much deeper than just theft. He pretended to cooperate and worked as a double agent so he could document all of the missionaries’ illegal activities.

Gavriel, you are so courageous! Now we can get compensation and restore the factory.

Our organization’s biggest issue was resolved because of you!

Thanks to Gavriel, we uncovered the plot to kidnap the children, as well as other terrible things that were taking place.

Hello. I have a signed warrant. You are all free, and you, the nun, will be punished for all of your illegal actions to try to convert Jews from their religion.

We now have all the documents to indict you, missionaries!

Wh

at

?

You turned a bitter chocolate factory into a sweet one.

THE END Recap: Gavriel is arrested. In court, the judge says that Gavriel had uncovered a criminal ring and enabled justice.
