LET’S REEVALUATE NOW (Re: A House of Candy, Issue 193) I was amazed at the talent that Monsey children displayed in their beautiful nosh creations, and I truly admire the cooperation of their parents in this hectic time. I feel that now that we literally stare all this junk in the face, it’s appropriate, even though it’s Erev Pesach, to address this nosh problem that we have created for ourselves. As a parent of a large brood, ka”h, I find that I’m challenged when buying mishloach manos that will be b’chovadig for my children to give and also with limiting their consumption when they are each a little entrepreneur of a virtual nosh dynasty. When bombarded with this abundance, the children don’t even appreciate all the goodies. They, too, become overwhelmed with securing and hoarding the overflowing bags and boxes of nosh. Perhaps we parents can come up with a fantastic program prior to Purim to entice the kids and to limit the mishloach manos overflow unitedly and joyfully, thereby avoiding the wastage (and even worse, the consumption) and this vexing struggle that most families encounter after Purim. The potential gain will be tremendous for the prat and the klal. S.F. P.S. I must mention that #40, the dentist chair by the Tessler family, was irresistibly sweet.
BE SMART, BE SEEN I recently traveled to attend a simcha in Monsey. As we were driving down the local roads, I was surprised to see how few people wear reflectors. And, yes, it is very hard to see a person who is dressed in black without a reflector. The difference between those responsible enough and those who just can’t be bothered is striking. Please, for your own
