SHOPPERS GUIDE | 782.8022

OUR ANCESTORS MEDICINE I read alot about how our ancestors always had fermented foods as a part of their diets, and that it was the only way they could survive without today's medicine and antibiotics. I can now say I'm a witness, since I started giving my kids Fer-Real Foods sauerkraut and green beans, they have not had a strep throat or flu, it's truly amazing. Shoshana Lipshitz, Boro Park

My mother used to make raw combucha. As kids, we didn't like it that much, but it was still very beneficial to our system. When I saw Fer-Real kombucha with the flavors, I thought to myself I needed to try it, it has immediately become a staple in our household, as soon as we run out of it, my kids beg me to buy more, they love the fizz and we stopped buying regular soda.

Fermented vegetables was a tradition in our family growing up, I remember my mother making pickles & fermented tomatoes, we loved it and had some with dinner every night and we barely had to see the doctor, we were always in perfect health, so thank you for bringing it back to our diets! Boruch Klien, Lakewood NJ

My father used to make Borscht every year, he used to start right after Purim, buying the ingredients, buying a brand -new peeler & knife,we also had a special corner in our dining room where we used to make it. Fer-Real Foods Borscht brings back great memories! C. B. Weiss, Monroe NY

MUMOIN CHECK CASHING

Monsey is known to be a town of chesed, with many organizations and gemachim. However, there’s one gemach that hasn’t reached our town yet, and that is the “snow-shoveling gemach.” All around town, you’ll find many children outside in the snow making snowmen, playing, etc., but in my neighborhood, I’ve not yet had a knock on the door and the question, “Can I please shovel your driveway?” Instead, the children stand and watch me shovel as entertainment (since I’m not a youngster anymore), but they don’t offer to help. So please, Monsey parents, educate your children and explain to them the meaning of chesed. A Monsey Resident

AN UNEXPLORED TOPIC (Re: Clinging to Kedusha Just a Little Bit Longer, Issue 183) After reading your past issue, I had to thank you for an inspirational read and well-sourced articles that completely changed the way I view Motzei Shabbos. (I washed for melaveh malkah this past week entirely in your zechus.) When seeing this week’s topic, our family marveled how you keep coming up with interesting, relevant and unexplored ideas to address week after week. Nothing like The Monsey View! N.P.

A SHABBOS STAPLE (Re: Shabbos Classics in a Snap, Issue 173) Although it’s been weeks since it was published, I’d like to thank Rivky Weiss for the recipe of the one-pan lokshen kugel. It is the only recipe that I currently have clipped, and it has become a staple in our house. It’s a great-tasting kugel that requires half the work of the traditional one — a win-win in our hectic home. T.K.

THE CLEANING HELP DISCUSSION CONTINUES (RE: Inbox, Issues 180–183) I don’t have much to say in regard to the rising wages of cleaning help. I understand both sides, and don’t have anything to add. However, one writer said something to the effect of cleaning help being a “necessity,” and this bothered me. While obviously there are many cases where having cleaning help is actually a necessity, please don’t fall into the trap of believing that this holds true for everyone. We have created a terrible situation for ourselves by believing that our very lives depend on our cleaning ladies, and this dependency is unhealthy! There are plenty of families who clean their homes on their own, even when both parents work full time. Some do it to save money (and believe me, you can save a lot), and others do it purely as a matter of principle and chinuch, with their kids being expected to pitch in. You may opt for cleaning help, but if you do so, realize that it’s possible that it may actually be something you’re treating yourself to, as opposed to a necessity like running water and heat. L.G.

YOUR

VOICE DEAR PARENTS OF OVERWEIGHT CHILDREN, I’m sure you will pick up on the deep-searing pain between the lines of my plea. I now stand at the other side of the road, and I beg of you to heed my advice. I was always chubby and now have chubby children of my own. Please take it from someone who knows. You can’t and won’t succeed at putting your children on a diet. The only thing you will succeed at accomplishing with insisting they lose weight is crushing their self-worth to smithereens. You may very possibly also succeed at turning them into extremely obese adults. “Look, I did succeed,” you may say. “My eight-grader lost 40 pounds! I know how to do this!” If that is the case, you’ve won the battle but lost the war. It is incredibly sad to see young children define themselves by their weight. It is a tragedy when a woman who wears size 10 or 12 is depressed because she can’t shake off those extra few pounds. It is an indescribable catastrophe for a young adult to dwell on failure multiple times, when instead she could focus on other aspects of her life where she can shine. Please have rachmanus on your dear children.

They get teased enough in school. Make your house a safe haven for them. What should be done as a parent of an obese child? When my kids were younger, I drilled into them that they were precious and cute. When they complained that they were fat, I told them, “You are yummy the way you are.” It was a moment of pure nachas when my child answered someone who teased her about her weight with, “I am cute the way I am!” Obviously, this will not be enough when the child grows older. I clearly remember thinking as a youngster, “It’s not enough that I am fat and ugly, but I also can’t have all that yummy food that every else enjoys.” How sad! When my children became a little older, I pointed out to them all their positive traits. I constantly tried to explain that being skinny isn’t a solution to all problems. At the same time, of course, I encouraged healthy eating. I spoke about the importance of eating protein. I had delicious, colorful fruits and vegetables handy. But I never said, “You have to lose weight.” Never. It does not help. And even if it does help at the age of 12, 13 or 14, it will backfire later in life in a terrible way. When children will feel completely ready, they will be motivated from within. And those results will be everlasting. (Don’t stand over them even then. Allow them to experience the consequences on their own.) I also want to point out that weight is a nature. I have some very skinny kids (I don’t know where they took that from!) who eat a lot more and a lot faster than my overweight children. Being overweight is not a child’s fault. Name Withheld

Parshas Mishpatim By: Malka Schneps

R’ ELIMELECH BIDERMAN, shlit”a, has told the story of a family with 11 children who lived in a small, three-room apartment in Kiryat Sefer. The family drew up a plan to add two more rooms to their apartment, but they would not be able to proceed with the addition unless every one of the neighbors in their building consented to the plan. All of their neighbors agreed to the plan except for one. A machlokes broke out among the residents of the building over this family’s refusal to grant permission for the construction. Someone turned to Rav Eliezer Turk, shlit”a, to see if he could help restore shalom in the building. Rav Turk called the home of the neighbor who refused to consent to the addition. The wife answered the call and informed Rav Turk that he was wasting his time in calling them, because they would never agree to the addition, no matter what he said. Rav Turk told her, “Al pi halachah, you are not obligated to be mevater. However, there is a general principle that when a person is mevater, it brings yeshuos. So let me ask you, are you in need of any kind of yeshuah?” The wife replied that they were indeed in need of a yeshuah; they had an older bachur for whom they could not find a shidduch. In fact, they were not even receiving phone calls from shadchanim about him. Rav Turk told her, “I am not a navi, but I am sure that if you will be mevater, then you will see a yeshuah.” The wife discussed the matter with her husband, and they decided

60 / THE MONSEY VIEW

that they would be mevater. They approached their neighbor to offer their consent to the construction and to apologize for their previous refusal. As they were speaking to the neighbor, the phone rang. It was a shadchan calling with a shidduch suggestion for their son. Soon after, the son became a chasan. The yeshuah had come exactly during the moment when they were mevater. R’ Biderman points out that being mevater and increasing peace is mesugal for yeshuos. He brings a source from this week’s parsha, where it says, “If you see the donkey of your enemy buckled under its load, would you refrain from helping him? You shall surely help along with him” (Shemos 23:5). Onkelus translates the words azov ta’azov (you shall surely help) as, “remove from your heart everything you have against him, and help him unload the donkey.” The Bris Menuchah explains this to mean that if you put aside any negative feelings against another person, then Hashem will remove all sins and troubles from you. Thus, the meaning of the words “azov ta’azov” is that if you will get rid of your hard feelings, then Hashem will bring you yeshuos. Rabbi Shaul Kassin, zt”l, brings a similar conclusion from stories about Rav Aharon Leib Shteinmen, zt”l. Rav Shteinmen used to say, “Many people search high and low for all sorts of different segulos in order to merit a yeshuah, but they don’t realize that the best segulah is simply having the middah of vatra-

nus. Breaking one’s negative middos is a tried-and-true segulah. Sarah Imeinu, who was childless for many years, took Hagar into her home in order to work on her middos, and she was zoche to have Yitzchak Avinu. Rochel Imeinu did the same thing, and she was zoche to have Yosef Hatzaddik and Binyamin.” Indeed, whenever people would come to Rav Shteinmen begging for a yeshuah, he would advise them, “Be mevater! Be mevater! There is no better way to merit a yeshuah than to be mevater!” There was once a fight between the head of a chesed organization and his senior manager, which got to the point where the head of the organization wanted to fire the manager. However, he decided to first consult with Rav Shteinmen. Rav Shteinman told him, “Al pi halacha you are allowed to fire him, but haven’t you and your wife been waiting many years to have children? A rare opportunity has just been presented to you. If you can be mevater, you will have an unbelievable zechus, and that zechus may be the one you need to be zoche to have children. So be strong and be mevater!” The man agreed to be mevater, and a year later Rav Shteinman was sandek at the bris of the man’s newborn son. Living in galus as we do, who among us does not need a yeshuah? Indeed, being in galus, Klal Yisroel is in need of the ultimate yeshuah. May we all find ways to be mevater and, in that zechus, be zoche to the ultimate yeshuah, bimheirah b’yameinu.

Parenting is a lifelong series of questions.

But what happens when you can’t find the answers?

1.

Will my child ever grow out of this behavior? Am I doing something wrong that’s causing my Bochur’s difficulty? How can it be that, just six months ago, things were so different?

How can I avoid the constant debating with my teenager?

2. Why is she not as social as her sister?

Is there something I can do to motivate my child? Am I wasting my time and money on therapy? Are my expectations of my child unreasonable?

3. Is there anything I can say in my child’s difficult moment that will calm him down?

How am I supposed to know what will help my child? Do I need to just accept that this child might be different? Does my child need to be evaluated? Is it too late in the game to regain some control of my child’s situation? Is medication the only solution for my child’s anxiety?

Is there a way for my job as a parent to become just a bit easier?

Measles Epidemic Declared Over in NJ Communities, While Local Counts Continue to Increase The measles outbreak may have ended in Lakewood and Passaic, but in Rockland County, the number of cases of the highly infectious virus continues to rise. Officials announced on January 16 that both the Ocean County and Passaic County Departments of Health had declared the outbreak over, with no new cases identified in over a month, reported the Asbury Park Press. Ocean County public health coordinator Daniel E. Regenye commended all those involved in the effort to halt the outbreak in the Lakewood area. “We received tremendous support from the community at large and partnered with pediatricians, schools, administrators, health care providers, the faith-based community and many other local groups throughout the outbreak, and each one played a vital role,” said Regenye. Nearly 3,000 doses of the measles vaccine were distributed at Lake-

wood’s CHEMED Health Center. But in our area, the number of reported measles cases have been increasing, with 122 confirmed cases in Rockland County and 11 more under investigation as of January 24. County health commissioner Dr. Patricia Schnabel Ruppert said that the continued spread of measles in the greater Monsey area is due, at least in part, to a lack of cooperation and reporting from those who are not visiting their doctors when they suspect a possible case of measles, reported The Journal News. “If they’re not going to their doctors and their providers, it’s not becoming a case to us as early as it could,” said Ruppert. “Therefore, there are further exposures.” No new measles cases have been reported in New Square in more than six weeks, while Spring Valley and Monsey have seen additional confirmed cases. Since the outbreak began in the fall, 14,000 doses of the

MMR vaccine have been given in our area. Efforts by community leaders and doctors have helped curtail the spread of the disease, noted Ruppert. An informative booklet titled Tzim Gezunt written last year by an Orange County medical center was mailed to 15,000 households in Monsey, Spring Valley and New Square. The booklet was accompanied by a letter of support from members of the local medical community including Dr. Benyamin Friedman, Dr. Yaakov Kiffel, Dr. Gavin Joffe, Dr. Seth Kurtz, Dr. Batya Wagner, Hillcrest Medical Associates, Partners in Pediatrics, Pomona Pediatrics, Refuah Health Center and Williamsburg Pediatrics. Two measles-related deaths have been reported in Israel. No fatalities have been reported here, although several people have been hospitalized with the measles and a baby born with congenital measles remains under quarantine at home.

Salmonella Worries Prompt Massive Flour Recall A voluntary national recall by General Mills has consumers being advised not to use five-pound bags of Gold Medal Unbleached Flour bearing a “better if used by” date of April 20, 2020. A statement issued by General Mills said that it detected the potential presence of salmonella while sampling the product. No reports of any illness related to the product have been received, according to General Mills. Consumers in possession of affected flour are advised to discard it and to contact General Mills at 1-800-230-8103 to obtain a replace-

66 / THE MONSEY VIEW / January 30, 2019 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

ment coupon. The recall does not affect any other Gold Medal flour products. Jim Murphy, president of General Mills meals and baking division, said that the company is continuing its efforts to educate the public about the dangers of eating products containing raw flour, which includes cookie dough and cake batter. The CDC has also warned against consuming uncooked cake mix and allowing children to play with or eat raw dough, including homemade playdough. Flour is a raw agricultural prod-

uct that has not been treated to kill germs, and contamination can occur in the field or during processing. Potential bacteria are typically killed in cooking. Consumers are also advised to wash their hands with hot water and soap after handling raw flour and to toast flour before using it in cookie dough that will be eaten raw or in homemade playdough. Symptoms of salmonella poisoning include fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain, and can cause severe illness in rare cases.

HILCHOS BORER | PART 8

BORER THROUGH USING A UTENSIL We mentioned in previous articles that when faced with a mixture of two different types of foods or items, or a mixture of ochel (food) with pesoles (garbage),1 one can avoid issues of borer by following three conditions: 1) taking what one wants to eat or use now from what one doesn’t; 2) taking it only immediately before eating or using; and 3) using one’s hands and not a kli that helps in the separation process.2 Let’s discuss the third condition, which is not using a kli that helps in the separation process. The halacha says there are three types of keilim. The first type is assur mid’Oraisa to use, the second is assur mid’rabbanan, and the third is mutar. A kli designed specifically for borer is assur mid’Oraisa. A kli that isn’t designed specifically for borer, 1 See Taz 319:12; Shulchan Aruch HaRav 319:8; Mishnah Berurah 319:15; not like the Ohr Sameach, Shabbos 8:11, who holds there is no borer by keilim.

Shulchan Aruch 319:1; see Shulchan Aruch HaRav 319:1, who explains these three conditions constitute derech achilah and therefore it is mutar. 2

Shulchan Aruch 319:1; Graz 319:1.

If one does not use the lid, but just pours from the pot, then it is a machlokes haposkim. (See Mishnah Berurah 319:55, Shaar Hatzion 44 and 49 in the name of the Chayei Adam who is machmir, Shemiras Shabbos K’hilchasah perek 3, footnote 189, where he brings the Mishbetzos Zahav 506:3 that seems to assur this. Kaf HaChaim 319:111). One should anyway avoid this because one is putting himself in a makom machlokes of what is considered “being taken.”

but helps in bereirah is assur mid’rabbanan, because using it may lead one to use a kli designed specifically for borer.3 The use of these two categories of keilim is assur even if one did it for immediate use and took the ochel from the pesoles.4 Finally, a kli that does not help in bereirah is muttar to use as long as one also follows the conditions of immediate use and taking ochel from pesoles. What is assur to use? Please note that we will not differentiate between keilim that are assur mid’Oraisa and keilim that are assur mid’rabbanan. A strainer is assur because it is a kli that makes the separation easier and is designed for bereirah. One is also not allowed to use cutlery or a pot lid to strain unwanted foods by holding it against the brim of the pot.5 It is

See Kaf HaChaim 319:113 who assurs. See Chazon Ish, Orach Chaim 53, “min,” who is mesupak. See Shevet Halevi, vol. 1, siman 84 who says because the heter wasn’t clear to the Chazon Ish, one must be machmir. See also Shevisas HaShabbos borer 49 and 52. See Rav Shlomo Zalman Auerbach, zt”l, brought in Shemiras Shabbos K’hilchasah, perek 3, footnote 140, where he is metzaded l’hatir keilim that are used usually right as one serves the food immediately.

a machlokes if it is mutar to strain unwanted foods by maneuvering the brim of the pot with one’s hands.6 One should avoid doing this for an additional reason, which is mentioned below. A slotted spoon used as a strainer7 and a teakettle with a strainer at its tip are considered keilim for borer and are therefore assur to use on Shabbos.8 It is a machlokes whether a salt shaker with rice inside (to prevent the salt from clumping together) is a forbidden kli because it keeps the rice in and lets the salt out,9 and one should avoid using it on Shabbos (see below for an additional reason to avoid this). There is another reason to assur all these “strainers” — like a lid and pot, slotted spoon, tea kettle with a strainer and salt shaker with rice. We mentioned in previous articles that when it comes to the condition of taking ochel from pesoles, there is a machlokes haposkim regarding what is considered being taken. Some say that what is being poured out is being taken,10 while others say that what is remaining in one’s hands is being taken.11 Since this is a machlokes between great poskim, one should never put oneself in such a situation. So there is also this additional reason to assur the cases above. A peeler is assur because unlike a knife, it doesn’t just cut — but also helps in separating, and is designed for doing so.12 An apple corer and a kli designed to remove an olive pit are assur to use on Shabbos.13 Also, it is assur to use a spoon to precisely take the cream from the top of the milk or the oil from the top of the soup. This is because in these cases, the spoon is performing the borer process in a way one’s hands wouldn’t be able.14 See below for cases when it is mutar to use a spoon. What is mutar to use? A kli that does not help in the separation process is mutar to use on Shabbos. So if one uses cutlery because one doesn’t want to dirty his hands, or if the food is too far away, and he is using cutlery to reach it, then it’s mutar because the kli is not helping in any way to ease the bereirah.15 However, one must remember that this is only mutar if one also follows the conditions of immediate use and ochel from pesoles. One may use a knife to peel fruit for immediate consumption because a knife just helps cut — but not to separate.16 The separation done with the knife after it cuts can be done just as easily with one’s hands, making it mutar. One may use a nutcracker to crack nuts because it just breaks the shell, but does not separate it from the nut.17 The purpose of this column is to bring awareness to matters of halacha. As with any halacha-related questions, consult your rav for a psak.

THE MONSEY VIEW / 85


hen I was a young child, my parents packed up their six children and belongings and moved from our home in Monsey to Eretz Yisroel And it was there, in Yerushalayim, that I grew up. When a distant relative introduced me to my British-born husband when he flew in from Hong Kong to spend Pesach in Eretz Yisroel, I was immediately intrigued by the name Sassoon. I was already familiar with the famous Sassoon family — aka “The Rothschilds of the East” — from the stories my father would tell us at the Shabbos table about this remarkable family. We heard everything, from their history in Baghdad, escape to India, and amazing business success; to their unmatched philanthropic contributions to many yeshivos, communities and institutions around the world; to their unwavering commitment to Torah and mitzvos. In particular, my father would speak about the honorable Mrs. Flora Sassoon (1856–1936) of Bombay and London,

86 / THE MONSEY VIEW / January 30, 2019 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

who was considered royalty both in India and in England. The eldest of twelve children, her father, Hagvir Yechezkel ben Yehoshua Gubbay (1824–1896), insisted on teaching his daughters as well as his sons Tanach, Mishnah and Ein Yaakov, and hired ordained rebbeim who traveled from Baghdad to Bombay to teach them in their home. Years later, the learned Flora Sassoon would correspond with various gedolim in Eretz Yisroel and Europe asking shailos, and many rabbonim, such as the Chofetz Chaim and Rav Avraham Yitzchak Hakohen Kook, wrote to her to request support for their yeshivos. When meshulachim came to London to collect money, they would have to come well prepared because she would quiz them on Torah — this was how she would


find imposters. In 1971, her grandson Rabbi Salomon Sassoon, zt�l, was zoche to move from Letchworth, England, to to Bayit Vegan and lived just a few buildings down from us. What were the chances that my chasan would be related to this amazing mishpacha? Turns out he was! We were married one year later in Yerushalayim, Ir Hakodesh. As Hashem had already given me the experience of moving eastward to a new continent as a child, I was now prepared for yet another move eastward, this time to the Far East. And so, two weeks after our wedding, I landed at Kai Tak airport in Hong Kong after a rather shaky descent, carefully guarding the shiny new Shabbos candlesticks hidden away in my hand luggage together with other precious wedding gifts. My husband, who had returned before me, was waiting at the arrivals gate with a beautiful bouquet of flowers and a huge smile on his face!

Yitzchak Sassoon in Ohel Leah Synagogue

The drive from the airport at night was surreal, with red taxis and buses whizzing through the narrow, winding roads — on the

wrong side! (In China, motorists drive on the left as in England. This made me very dizzy.) The misty, humid night air was heavy and thick, and the tops of the imposing skyscrapers disappeared

January 30, 2019 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 87 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


into the heavens, like the Tower of Bavel. The loud, unintelligible sounds coming from the taxi’s radio sounded like Chinese — because it was! Despite all this, I was there for a purpose and was excited and enthusiastic to start a new chapter of my life together with my husband.

Our apartment was very small and was located on the 11th floor of a building in the Mid-Levels district of Hong Kong. Exploring my new home, I looked out the large bay window and gazed beyond the tall, imposing skyscrapers out onto Victoria Harbour with its numerous boats and barges floating through. The serenity of the scene was broken by the constant sounds of steel piles being pounded deeper and deeper into the ground, to make way for yet another new skyscraper on a minuscule parcel of land. I saw area workers climbing up and down bamboo scaffolding, working on yet another new structure. Taking inventory of my husband’s food supplies in the tiny closet-like kitchen, I found a carton of UHT milk from Australia in the mini fridge, and in the cabinet, a packet of Osem instant rice mix and a few rolls. Since Pesach was one week away, my husband and I soon took the escalator down to Central to shop for Pesach dishes, pots and pans. We didn’t need much because most of our Pesach meals would be eaten at the Jewish Community Center of Hong Kong, known as the JCC. At the time, Rabbi David Tzadok was the mashgiach tamidi there.

As I wanted to impress my new husband with my very own yom tov cooking, I decided to visit the JCC kosher store to buy some provisions for Pesach. The store was very small,

88 / THE MONSEY VIEW / January 30, 2019 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

but Stella, the storekeeper, spoke English and was kind and helpful. Aside from Empire, Aaron’s and Solomon’s frozen chicken and meat, the store sold Ungar’s gefilte fish rolls, a few odd cholov Yisroel dairy products, condiments, Osem products, cans of tuna and sardines, chocolate, candy, wines and grape juice, and some other random kosher l’Pesach products. I managed to find enough products to cook two delicious meals for the last days, and we even invited a guest for those meals.

built had affected his neshamah and deepened his commitment to Torah and mitzvos beyond his expectations. This was a magical place for him, and he was always so proud to be a descendant of the founding family. Now, I was so happy to join him! After davening, we walked across the shul plaza and straight into the beautiful ballroom. The room was divided in sections for the two organized Sedarim scheduled to take place there that first night. We joined our friend Rabbi Neta-

Hachnosas Sefer Torah in Hong Kong

Finally Pesach arrived. The shul was lit up. Oh, how my husband loved this shul where he felt so at home! It was a member of the Sassoon family, Sir Jacob Sassoon, who built Ohel Leah in 1902, naming it after his mother. Not having had any children who survived him, he bequeathed the shul and adjacent land, which houses the JCC and the Carmel School, to the Jewish community. During the five years my husband had lived in Hong Kong before our engagement, davening in this ancient shul and being part of a community that his ancestors

nel Meoded for the first Seder, and Rabbi Lopin, the Rabbi of Ohel Leah, and his wife in their home for the second Seder. On the first night, the tables were elegantly set, and highly professional Chinese chefs, who had become familiar with Jewish cuisine and customs, prepared a festive meal. What a beautiful kiddush Hashem it was, as Yidden of different backgrounds came together to celebrate Pesach in this foreign land. The seudah the following morning was also delicious and elegantly served. Generously sponsored by

the trustees of the Ohel Leah Synagogue, this meal was intended to create an atmosphere of community achdus, and the zemiros and diveri Torah delivered by the rabbi were beautiful.

After Pesach real life began, and I focused on setting up my house, enjoying every minute of it. When my husband was at work, I used the time to visit shops, compare prices and products, and get familiar with the territory. We sometimes met for lunch at the JCC or down in Central at a small restaurant called Shalom Grill, operated by a small breakaway community called Shuva Yisrael, which was established and supported by the Darwish family members. Across the Harbour, in Kowloon, was Rabbi Meoded’s shul, Kehillat Zion, and he and his wife also ran a small restaurant. Chabad of Hong Kong, led by Rabbi Avtzon and his wife, was also active and served meals, mainly on Shabbos and yom tov. A few months passed, and Rabbi Yaakov Kermaier and his wife Ilana arrived from Riverdale, New York, as the new rabbi of the Ohel Leah Synagogue. He initiated many new activities for the members, including a Lunch n’ Learn every Wednesday.

At this point, I had my shopping routine pretty much under control. I did all of my meat, wine and dairy shopping at the JCC kosher store. It was always exciting to find something new when a new ship-


Letters from the Chofez Chaim and Rav Kook to Flora (‫ )פרחה‬Sassoon. Source: ‫ ״פרקים בתולדות יהודי בבל״‬:‫אברהם בן יעקב‬

ment arrived. Luckily, I was skilled at cutting up a whole chicken by myself, as parts were not always available. The JCC hired a full-time baker, Tony, who made the most delicious challos, always baked fresh for Shabbos and yom tov. One could never eat enough of them! His breads, rolls, baguettes and pitas were also amazing. Cakes and pies were also baked at the JCC kitchen and were usually served on Shabbos, at special events, and in the restaurants. Over the years, as our family grew, we ordered birthday cakes for our three children, in a variety of themes. They were artistically crafted and made to perfection. All you had to do was give them a picture of what you wanted, and they would skillfully create the cake. I shopped for fruits and vegetables at the regular supermarkets on my city block, where one could find American brands of food boasting OU, Kof-K, Star-K or OK symbols. As Hong Kong is a small territory, with no space for farming, it relies on imported food products to feed its vast population. This was lucky for us! Rice, eggs, oil, beans, oatmeal, pasta, cereals, and canned goods were all readily available. There were also products from the U.K., so I obtained a London Beis Din guide book to help me identify them. A favorite Motzei Shabbos outing for us was a visit to the International food stores to search for products bearing a kosher symbol. A discovery of a frozen pie crust, bread, yogurt, cookies or whatever it was would deem our venture a huge success!

Another highlight of keeping kosher in Hong Kong was the amazing Barbeque and Buffet meals the JCC would serve on Wednesday and Sunday evenings. For a fixed price, you could help yourself to a wide variety of delectable steaks, hamburgers and hot dogs. Of course, the overflowing platters of salads, grilled vegetables, potatoes, delicious mousses, cakes and desserts were outstanding as well!

On the beautiful yomim tovim of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, the shul would fill up. Rabbi Yaakov Kermaier and the shul committee would hire a special chazan, usually from Eretz Yisroel, to conduct the tefillos, and there would be many new faces participating in the davening. On Motzei Yom Kippur, the entire community was invited to an unusually lavish Break-the-Fast buffet, sponsored by the honorable Kadoorie family of Hong Kong.

On Sukkos, a huge sukkah was built in the courtyard between the Ohel Leah Synagogue and ballroom. Yom tov meals were catered by the JCC. Almost everyone in

January 30, 2019 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 91 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


Ohel Leah Synagogue, Hong Kong

the community came to eat there as it was almost impossible to build one’s own sukkah in Hong Kong. Fondly remembered and greatly enjoyed was “Sukkah Yaki Night” on the second night of Sukkos, when the JCC chefs prepared a sumptuous banquet of Japanese food. It was something really incredible. Of course, all of this came with a price, but it was definitely a reasonable sum and well worth the money.

Another amazing feature of living in Hong Kong was the free sit-down Kiddush luncheon after davening on Shabbos. Many people celebrated bar mitzvahs, aufrufs, yahrzeits, as well as different special occasions, which attracted Yidden of all backgrounds to come to shul to daven, socialize and become active in the community. Many amazing people have become closer to Torah observance because of the warmth, acceptance and intellectual stimulation of the community.

As hashgacha pratis brought me to Hong Kong, I took it upon myself to do what I could in the area

92 / THE MONSEY VIEW / January 30, 2019 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


of hachnosas orchim and kiruv. I encouraged my husband to bring home guests from shul on Friday night, even at the last minute, and I always tried to prepare extra food. We met lots of interesting Yidden from all over the world in this way. One of them was Ariel, an agronomist from Eretz Yisroel. He was sent to China every so often to help the Chinese develop a better tomato harvest. We insisted he eat a Shabbos meal by us every time he came, instead of cold food in his hotel room. We also hosted a mashgiach from the OU on his way back from China to inspect a tomato sauce factory. There were lots of giggles when he told us how he found a shoe in the big vat of tomato sauce! Then there was a frum businessman who came for a meal several times and brought us pickled esrog slices that he loved! I was also very appreciative of another guest who brought us a rare treat from New York: a tasty brick of Cholov Yisroel American Cheese — worth its weight in gold!

Purim in Hong Kong was equally special and very much celebrated by all. The Women’s League of the Carmel School organized a mishloach manos fundraiser every year. They would order hamantashen from the JCC kitchen, in addition to other goodies related to the theme of the year. I decided to send a mishloach manos to my son Shimmy’s speech therapist, an Australian Jewish woman who never frequented the JCC. She was so touched that we became friends, and eventually, she sent her sweet four-year-old to the Jewish school. We later had her over with her husband for our Pesach Seder. It was amazing to see what a mishloach manos can do!

As in all Asian countries, there was a market for everything. The fish market was no exception; outdoor stalls sold every kind of fish imaginable. One year I decided to cook homemade gefilte fish using a fresh fish. I went to the fish market and felt what our grandmothers and greatgrandmothers were faced with when having to pick a kosher fish. Luckily, my bekius in the halachos of kashrus kicked in. I chose a kosher fish by its fins and scales and took it home. I had my domestic helper clean it, and we ate it for yom tov!

Everyone in Hong Kong had a domestic helper. It took a while until they understood the kosher kitchen rules, but they usually caught on fast and respected the guidelines. One of my helpers was very makpid on the rules. She even asked me a “shailah�: Could she put dairy garbage and meat garbage into the same trash can? The answer was yes! Another helper was amazed that we, the Yidden, were still around. She had read about us in school in the Philippines and had thought we were something of the past! Another religious Chinese-Indonesian nurse was so thrilled to help me in the hospital when I had a baby, because she said I was so lucky to be from the Chosen Nation. She was right!

I always felt the hashgacha of Hashem with me. Toward the end of our stay, I organized

94 / THE MONSEY VIEW / January 30, 2019 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


a Rosh Hashanah fundraiser for the Carmel School, where our children were students. For a special price, the school delivered flowers and honey to anyone who was interested. We hired a lovely florist to make the flower arrangements, and we got an abundance of orders. Now all I needed to do was find small jars of kosher honey for the arrangements. I didn’t know where I would find those jars and searched all the local supermarkets and International stores with no luck. Even the JCC kosher store did not have them, and they would not arrive on time if ordered. Time was running out. Desperately, I decided to once again try the local supermarket directly across the street from our apartment. To my astonishment and surprise, on the shelf were tens and tens of small honey jars with the OU hechsher on them. They were exactly what I was looking for! Hashem was certainly smiling down at me that day — I have no other explanation for this!

All in all, I can say that it is very possible to live a meaningful and kosher life in Hong Kong, thanks to the trustees of the Ohel Leah Synagogue who continue the legacy of the Sassoon family. I was very happy to have this experience, but after eight years of living in Hong Kong, it was time for us to say goodbye and move on. We packed up our precious belongings, namely our children, furniture and valuables, and can take pride in saying they were all truly “Made in China”!

Over the Moon with a New Moon Every country has its signature item they pride themselves with. Russian matryoshka dolls, Belgian chocolates... No matter the distance they’ve traveled, they are easily linked to their country of origin; no “Made in” sticker necessary. And China… well, China has gotten really skilled at… Made in China stickers. Maybe that’s just because the actual items bearing those stickers often don’t last long enough to be remembered.

Not only does China compete with other Western countries, but currently, the Tian Fu New Area Science Society is attempting competition with nature itself! After all, why shoulder the exorbitant costs of streetlamps when you can simply place another moon in the sky? This may seem ludicrous, but according to Chairman Wu Chunfeng of Chengdu Aerospace Science and Technology Microelectronics System Research Institute, streetlamps may be a thing of the past by the year 2020. The “illumination satellite” would be launched to orbit above the Chinese city of Chengdu, and in conjunction with the actual moon, will reflect sunlight down to earth with its mirror-like coating. It won’t just be the natural moon’s assistant; the artificial moon is expected to be eight times brighter than the real moon and will be able to light up an area up to 80 kilometers in diameter! But most astounding is their key focus: control of the moon. Unlike the real moon, the location and illumination of this satellite would have the ability to be controlled or even shut off completely. And in the event of natural disasters and power outages, it could be directed to illuminate the affected areas.

It is no wonder, then, that China is thought to be a cheap, Third World country, where roads are made of plastic and cars aren’t meant to actually seat people. But the China of our minds is not the China of today. China may be highly skilled at exporting flimsy knockoffs, but they are also proving to be an innovation powerhouse. January 30, 2019 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 99 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


The Drive to Reduce Pollution In an attempt to control the dense pollution that envelops the major Chinese cities and to reduce their reliance on oil, China is currently adding a London-sized electric bus fleet — that amounts to 9,500 buses — to its roads every five weeks, according to a report from Bloomberg New Energy Finance. Not only has the air pollution lessened in the cities after the transition to electric buses, but the noise pollution has dramatically decreased as well, with the silence of the electric buses replacing the hissing engines of the standard buses. Shenzhen, China, has now become the first city to switch 100 percent of its buses to electric models! With an estimated 385,000 fully electric buses globally, China is leading the green transit revolution by boasting 99 percent of those buses! Also in the hope of becoming the leading exporter of electric vehicles, China currently has the world’s largest electric car market, with 6 out of the 10 major manufacturers being Chinese.

Charging Ahead on the Road to Electrification

Obey Speeds or Say Cheese

Chinese highways are now literally being paved with good intentions… Though we’re accustomed to fueling up for our drive on the highways, drivers on China’s expressways will be able to take a drive down the highway to fuel their cars. These photovoltaic roads are in the process of being constructed with solar panels underneath a transparent coating, along with sensors that will monitor traffic flow, weight load and temperature. The photovoltaic cells embedded in the road will power electric cars as they drive. Who needs gas stations when you can just refuel simply by… driving?

If you’re driving down a Chinese highway, you may want to keep smiling. Or, alternatively, you may want to abide by the traffic laws. Not that you’ll be pulled over for failing to do so, but it may cost you an overpriced portrait print. That is because for the most part, Chinese drivers don’t have the pleasure of being pulled over by blaring sirens. Not because they worship the laws, but because the ticketing system has mostly been replaced by radar-detecting cameras along roads and highways that send violators their tickets by mail. No use arguing; the tickets include snapshots with proof of the infringements.

Why waste valuable land space when you can easily use the sea as a host for power plants? In an attempt to showcase their commitment to renewable energy, China’s waters now boast the world’s largest floating solar power plant, built atop a flooded coal mining region. This mega-farm can produce enough energy to power 15,000 homes! The cooling effect of the water beneath and around the panels serve as a unique advantage in making the panels more efficient. This megaproject is just one part of an ongoing effort to clean the air from the thick smog that’s been blamed for over a million deaths each year, according to studies.

The New Face of Digital Payment Chinese customers will soon have the option of paying with a smile! Facial recognition payment is being debuted at some Chinese retailers, allowing customers to pay by essentially flashing a smile at a self-serve screen. The 3D camera scans the customer’s face to confirm their identity. Similar to fingerprints, the facial recognition technology uses a series of algorithms to analyze the customer’s face based on a variety of physical traits and links them to an internal database storing their information. Travel lighter and get through checkout literally “in the blink of an eye!”


China’s Growing Pains China is making a ruckus over its accomplishments — and the cries of its underprivileged citizens are being drowned out by the applause. China boasts about its technological advancements, but its own citizens are the victims of their country’s prosperity. Life in rural China sharply contrasts the technologically advanced lifestyle enjoyed by China’s wealthy. Extreme poverty forces many of the countrymen to leave their villages in search of employment in the congested cities, leaving their families behind and returning home only once a year. Not to squander their meager paychecks, these migrant workers sleep and eat in run-down quarters at their factories, which often closely resemble neglected prisons. Further complicating things for the factory workers, China’s Hukou system makes it difficult for migrant workers to integrate into China’s affluent society. The Hukou system is a social system that assigns benefits based on rural and urban residency status. Benefits like pensions, education and healthcare are easily available to the urban citizens, while the rural individuals are, for the most part, left to fend for themselves. This Hukou system is largely responsible for the nation being so deeply divided, and it leaves the workers vulnerable to maltreatment by their urban employers. Though some argue that these restrictions have gradually eased over the years, they are still disproportionately affecting the poorest citizens.

Will China emerge as the powerhouse it strives to be, while its backbone is being crushed under the intense weight of the country’s prosperity?

3D-Printed Speed They say that Rome wasn’t built in a day. That’s probably because it wasn’t built by the Chinese. In China it’s not uncommon to have major construction completed before you’d even notice the need for repairs. In one such instance in 2014, a Chinese company called WinSun Decoration Design Engineering used 3D printing to build a 10-house village in under a day! This impressive feat was accomplished by generating 3D-printed concrete components, which were then transported and assembled on site.

Too Far Too Fast The Chinese government is setting off alarm bells by taking technology to frightening new levels. Combining facial recognition with their social credit system that ranks and punishes citizens according to behavior, China is tightening its grip on its people. With their mass surveillance system monitoring over 200 million cameras across the country, faces within swarming crowds can be easily identified within a few seconds, with efforts to achieve 90 percent accuracy. And in the event of obscured faces, new gait-recognition software is capable of identifying individuals based on their silhouette and gait! Of the newer additions to China’s surveillance arsenal are sunglasses with built-in facial recognition. Worn by the police, they are used to scan crowds on a more personal level. Purportedly implemented to reduce crime and terrorism, this expanding authoritarian surveillance poses a chilling threat to civil liberties, a frightening case of innovation going too far.

hen Shmuel Goldstein* joined the company, it was a rather small operation, and Shmuel’s task was to be the office manager. Applying his astute business acumen, he helped the company reach top tiers in its field. Over the years, it went global, and offices were opened in various countries, one at a time. That turned Shmuel into an international traveler. With the opening of each new branch, Shmuel’s responsibilities increased manifold. Instead of simply steering one office to perfection, he would travel to each site and set up the new office. Once the local staff was properly trained and the branch was running smoothly, he would return home from where he continued to supervise the operation remotely. Shmuel held the keys to many locations and supervised the managers and staff members of each one. Shmuel attributed his unbelievable success to his trust in his rebbe. Before each new venture, he would speak with his rebbe, get his blessings, and consult with him about the halachic issues involved. There were times when

“Here is the key to your room,” he was told at reception. “Your suitcase will be brought to your room shortly.” He was assigned a room on the 39th floor, but it didn’t bother him since he anyway wasn’t planning to leave his room over Shabbos. Shmuel took the elevator and scrambled to find his room. He quickly washed his face and hands and opened his siddur to daven Mincha and Kabbalas Shabbos. Soon he had davened Maariv as well, but still his suitcase had not been delivered to his room. Shmuel stepped out into the hallway Quick calculations proved he and met a hotel staff could still make it in time for member. “I’m not sure why my suitcase Shabbos, but things contindid not arrive yet,” he ued to veer off plan. said.

At one point, a new branch was opened in the Far East. With the blessings of his rebbe, Shmuel scheduled his trip, booked a ticket and packed his bags with all of his personal and business needs. He was scheduled to arrive on a Friday morning. To Shmuel’s dismay, his flight was delayed. Quick calculations proved he could still make it in time for Shabbos, but things continued to veer off plan. First Shmuel was held

But how was he to get there?! There was no way he would go into the elevator on Shabbos. Shmuel turned to the emergency stairs and began his downward trek. At the bottom, he identified his suitcase, opened it up and removed the bottle of wine as well as two challos he had brought along. After all the unforeseen twists this trip had surprised him with so far, at least he’d be able to partake of some sort of seudah! Holding the food in his hands, he went back to the emergency exit staircase. The number 39 is enormous, when that’s how many floors one has to climb. Still, Shmuel would not consider any other option. Slowly, he began to go up, one step at a time. At the 20th floor, Shmuel sat down on the top step to catch his breath. He rested for a few moments and then pulled himself up again. Every muscle ached and his entire body swayed from the pressure. He used his imagination to comfort himself and could almost hear his Kiddush and taste the challos in his dry mouth. Sweating profusely and with


hardly an ounce of energy left, he counted 37… 38… and finally — 39! He invigorated himself with the fresh surge of energy that reaching his goal provided and darted to the door. Still clutching his precious food close, he did not notice a small protrusion at the edge of the stairs, and he tripped noisily. Ouch! But before he could even feel the pain, he heard the loud crack of his wine bottle as it crashed down the steps. Wine cascaded downward, creating a red waterfall whose smell soon filled the entire stairwell. Shmuel stood up and peered at the The number 39 mess.

He left behind has to climb. the challah that Still, Shmuel had fallen into the puddle and took would not conthe single remainsider any other ing one with him. option. It would have to suffice for Kiddush and the seudah. And he needed to summon the cleaning crew. Shmuel pushed the staircase door open and entered the hallway. And there, to his disbelief, stood a Yid, dressed in a shtreimel and bekishe with a broad smile on his face. “Shalom aleichem! Gut Shabbos!” The Yid’s arm was outstretched in greeting. “You’re invited to my room,” he said. “I have wine, fish, meat and everything we need for a Shabbos seudah!” Shmuel could barely get to himself. “From… from where did you come?” he stammered. “I was in my room, preparing for the seudah, when I heard the sound of someone falling and the sound of broken glass. I thought to myself that whatever happened really isn’t my business, but something told me I had to go check it out.” Shmuel and his new host, who remarkably had been given a room on the very same floor of this towering hotel, sat down to a meal that was more uplifting than any Shabbos seudah Shmuel had experienced for a long time. When Shmuel later related what happened to him in the Far East that Shabbos, he stated emphatically, “In the merit of my acceptance of all that happened to me — lovingly and without a trace of anger — Hashem brought the two of us together. If not for the broken bottle, both of us would have passed a lonely Shabbos on the same floor, so close, yet totally unaware of each other’s presence.” Name has been changed for privacy.

By: Hadassah Steinman

Chopsticks, one of the hallmarks of East Asian culture, are the kitchen and eating tools of choice in the countries of China, Japan, Korea, Thailand, Vietnam and more. Used in pairs of two equally sized sticks, chopsticks are most often made of bamboo, plastic, wood or stainless steel. Chopsticks made of ivory, jade, gold or silver are also available for those who choose to dine in luxury.

Researchers believe that the impetus for chopsticks being introduced was the nonviolent teachings of an ancient Chinese philosopher who believed that knives, which connote violence, had no place at the table…

For us knife-and-fork users, chopsticks seem highly awkward and impractical, but to a third of the world — which amounts to as many people as those who use our “standard” cutlery — chopsticks are the number one eating tool. While it does take practice to be fully comfortable using chopsticks, they’re actually simpler to use than you’d think! The trick? Keeping one chopstick in position at all times, while using only the second one to maneuver food into the grasp of the chopsticks. This is how: 1. Place the first chopstick at the base of the thumb of your dominant hand, letting it rest on your tucked-in ring and pinky fingers. 2. Place the second chopstick between the top of your thumb and forefinger, and place your middle finger underneath it. 3. Using your middle finger, move the second chopstick up and down to pick up food.

CHOPSTICKS BY COUNTRY CHINA Chinese chopsticks are generally longer than chopsticks in other countries, and most households use chopsticks made of lacquered bamboo. Exercising proper etiquette while dining is very important to the Chinese, and a child’s handling his chopsticks incorrectly reflects badly on his parents. Some pointers: • It is considered poor etiquette to spear food with a chopstick. Anything that is too difficult to grasp with

120 / THE MONSEY VIEW

chopsticks should be eaten with a spoon. • Digging or searching through food is frowned

upon and is referred to as “digging one’s grave.” • Chopsticks should never be used upside down. The only


time this is considered acceptable is when one is stirring food or transferring something from another plate when there are no serving chopsticks. • Since this sound is reminiscent of beggars trying to catch the attention of passersby, it is considered impolite to tap one’s chopsticks on the edge of one’s bowl. • For some mysterious reason, it is considered perfectly acceptable to use chopsticks to shovel rice from a plate directly into one’s mouth. • When serving oneself, one’s chopsticks may not pass over the chopsticks, hands, etc. of another person, and rested chopsticks should never be pointed at other people seated at the table. • Chopsticks resting on top of a bowl means that one has finished eating, while chopsticks resting at the side of one’s bowl indicate that one is simply taking a break and will resume eating shortly.

JAPAN The Japanese use chopsticks of varying sizes, beginning with extremely long chopsticks that are used for cooking and stirring. Chopsticks used for eating are considerably shorter and come in sizes appropriate for men, women and children. Many Japanese chopsticks have grooves at the pointed ends to prevent food from slipping from their grasp. Chopsticks are typically made of lacquered wood or bamboo, though disposable chopsticks used in restaurants — which come attached at the top to indicate that they haven’t been used — are unlacquered. Though plastic and metal chopsticks are appreciated for their durability, they’re less popular since they tend to be slippery. In Japan, chopsticks that aren’t in use should be resting on a chopstick rest. But what to do when using disposable chopsticks, which are very popular in Japan? Diners using those chopsticks are encouraged to use the paper wrapper — folded up — in lieu of a chopstick rest, and then stick the chopsticks back into the wrapper when they’re done eating.

THAILAND Historically, Thai people used their hands to eat, until they borrowed the idea of using a fork and spoon from the West and learned about chopsticks from the East. This is the reason you’ll find many kinds of eating tools in Thailand, depending on the dish served, and so — no chopsticks when eating rice!

KOREA Koreans use chopsticks of medium length, which are paired with a matching spoon. Most Korean chopstick-spoon sets are made of metal, and many have an elaborate design etched into the grip.

Contrary to the Chinese, Koreans eat rice with a spoon, possibly because they consider lifting a plate to one’s mouth poor etiquette...
