THE WINNING CHOICE F O R D RY A N D S E M I S W E E T W I N E
T ura isfor winners The story of a burgeoning winery considered one of the premier boutique wineries in Israel begins with a man’s love for his country, the feel of its earth beneath his hands, and the pride he takes in cultivating its crops. Tura’s success is attributed to two words that encompass every bottle of wine - Patience and Inspiration. The process toward perfection is a slow art and requires skill and patience, joined by the holiness of the land that inspires the creation of such fine grapes. Each bottle brings with it the heart and soul of Israel and is produced with the purpose to celebrate with, uplift, and enjoy. Tura’s award-winning lineup features a variety of celebrated wines to satisfy every palate.

ASK BEFORE YOU WRAP (Re: Out With the Chometz; In With the Pesach, Issue 194) Thank you so much for your publication, which we enjoy immensely every week. In last week’s Pesach preparation column, the writer mentioned lining the refrigerator with saran wrap. My cousin had this idea one year, and when she asked a baal machshir about it, she was told not to use it. I am not sure whether there is indeed a problem, but I do want to make readers aware that not all plastic is alike and that they should ask a shailah before using this, or anything else they are not sure about.

all your needs.
EDITOR’S NOTE: As per the psak of the Belzer Dayan, shlit”a, and as per Rabbi Blumenkranz’s book, all plastic wraps are permissible to be used on Pesach. As with any halachic matter, ask your personal rav for an individual psak.

(Re: Visiting the Monsey Pesach Grocery Scene, Issue 193) I read with consternation T. Gestetner’s article regarding those who inadvertently ate chometz items on Pesach due to various mix-ups or mislabelling. It was very enlightening, so I’d like to thank the author. However, why should we stop here? What about the fact that dairy products can be mistaken as pareve? Before Purim, I was chatting with a woman at the supermarket about a particular dairy chocolate bar in the nosh section. She said she was avoiding buying it for fear her family members might mistakenly eat the chocolate after the fleishig seudah she’d be serving, because of its red-themed wrapper.

Perhaps it’s time for kashrus authorities to institute a collective takanah that all cholov Yisroel products should have a uniform color (or at least a uniform alert label), so that people shouldn’t be nichshal. Unfortunately, I was once nichshal by assuming a red-wrapped granola bar was pareve. How about taking it a step further still? How about a takanah that every kosher food company that markets their goods to glatt kosher food stores should offer uniform color-coded labels for meat, pareve and dairy, as well as a different colors for Pesach? And — directly below the label, add the bracha for that food item? I’m looking forward to even more kashrus improvements in our community. A Reader

A FRIGHTENING LESSON This past Shabbos afternoon, a miracle occurred on the corner of Suzanne Drive and Francis Place. As is well known, there’s a low cement wall overlooking the lake at that corner. A two-year-old was sitting on the cement ledge, holding on to the metal bar on top. From one second to the next, she slipped under the bar, straight into the mud and water 12 feet below! Miraculously, she landed unharmed. She was transported by Hatzoloh and checked out in the hospital, and b’chasdei Hashem, she is fine. The onlookers are still traumatized! Beware: When you take your children to visit the ducks, make sure not to let anyone sit on top of that low cement wall, even while holding on. Ein somchin al haness! May we continue to share and hear only good news, until Moshiach, amen. Residents of Suzanne Drive

I’ve always known that our Yiddishe shopkeepers are amazing people, but just today I learned it again. My boys needed shoes and went to Men’s Shoe Box because they love the friendly service, excellent fit and quick shopping experience. We had a discount coupon, which they had left at home, but the store owner graciously credited us, even though it was a great hassle for him to do so. This is something only a fellow Yid would do! Thank you! A Grateful Customer

alking into EZ Glass & Mirrors, you will be dazzled by the sparkle ricocheting off every surface. Glass and mirrors can be objects of beauty, and EZ Glass certainly boasts a variety of aesthetic pieces. The showroom displays samples of exquisite products and a huge database of pictures to spark anyone’s imagination. Speaking to owner Isaac Gross, it’s clear he knows his stuff. He knows the industry, he knows his clients, and most importantly — he loves what he does. “Commercial jobs, home jobs — we love them all,” he says, with the passion of a man there to serve his clients. At EZ Glass & Mirrors, you bring your dream, and they make it come true. Everyone knows it’s easiest to construct a product according to fixed measures. Many a craftsman will only accept clear-cut, standard jobs and lack the willingness to get involved in complex specialty jobs with individual requirements. At EZ Glass you’ll find the opposite. Here there is no standard; everything is custom-made. “Can you tell me about an unusual specialty job you’ve done?” I ask Mr. Gross. Actually, he can’t. That’s because here, “everything is a specialty job.” Clients have come to expect customized service and careful attention — because EZ Glass is there to serve their individual needs.

Together, they make one professional team. Glass does wonders to the ambiance of a home or office: Impressive glass railings can take any place from standard to stylish. Glass wall partitions customize an office to reflect its character and needs. Mirrors expand the perception of space in any room, and installing one can do miracles in a tight space. You decide on the shape and size; EZ Glass & Mirrors will provide it. You will also find a large variety of glass tabletops at EZ Glass, and shower doors, too, are a constant; with their large volume of shower door orders, they’ve seen and done it all. The saleswomen at the shower section will expertly guide you through the many practical and beautiful options. So much more than a showroom, most of the glass and mirrors are fabricated on site by the EZ Glass & Mirrors staff of glass experts, and are then finished to perfection with their
highly sophisticated glass-edging polishing machine. EZ Glass & Mirrors provides your practical, regular glass needs too, of course. A broken window is a hazard, and EZ Glass makes that a priority. Local schools have come to rely on their quick and expert service — as well as anyone who wants a job done right. And EZ glass makes it convenient, too: They will come to you for

Rockland Property Taxes Second Highest in US A report released by a Californiabased real estate tracking company awards our little corner of New York the dubious honor of having the second highest property taxes anywhere in the country. With an average 2018 property tax bill for a single-family home coming in at $12,925, Rockland County was second only to West-
chester, whose average property tax bill was $17,392. Rounding out the top five were Marin County, California, and two other nearby counties — New Jersey’s Essex and Bergen counties. A tax cap enacted in New York in 2011 to slow property tax increases limited the hikes to a maximum of 2 percent per year, reported The Jour-
nal News. The tax cap was made permanent by the recently passed state budget and was supported by Governor Andrew Cuomo. “We needed a permanent property tax cap, which was also controversial and a lot of people didn’t want to do that,” said Cuomo. “But it is essential for people outside the city who pay that tax.”
A Show of Appreciation to Rebbeim at Chasdei Lev’s Annual Monsey Pesach Distribution It was a truly inspiring afternoon on Sunday, March 24, as over 100 volunteers turned out to distribute orders to 608 rebbeim as part of Chasdei Lev’s annual Pesach food initiative. Rebbeim from 81 participating yeshivos took part in the Monsey distribution, enjoying the opportunity to order a combined total of 27,354 cases of Pesach necessities, including matzah, grape juice, chicken, meat, gefilte fish, salmon, groceries, paper goods and more, through Chasdei Lev. All of the items were heavily subsidized, with Chasdei Lev, distributors, manufacturers and yeshivos giving rebbeim the opportunity to purchase their Pesach needs at a significant discount as a way of demonstrating their hakaras hatov to those who devote their lives to chinuch. Volunteers began arriving at Palisades Credit Union Park the night before the scheduled distribution, driving to Pomona as soon as Shabbos ended. Nearly a dozen men worked through the night, unloading 26 pallet-filled tractor trailers and laying the orders out in neat rows. When rebbeim arrived at the ballpark the next day, they were greeted by smiling volunteers wearing orange shirts
144 / THE MONSEY VIEW / April 17, 2019 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
bearing the words “Thank You” who directed them to the aisle where their order was waiting for them. Men and boys of all ages were on hand throughout the parking lot, packing orders directly into the rebbeim’s cars, thanking them profusely for their dedication to their talmidim. Refael Reese was one of those volunteers who spent a sleepless night readying the pallets for the rebbeim. “As the son of a rebbi, I understand how important it is to show appreciation and also how grateful the rebbeim are to Chasdei Lev for all that they do,” said Reese. Town of Ramapo Supervisor Michael Specht visited the stadium during the distribution, clearly impressed by what he saw. “This event is a perfect example of all that is good in the Town of Ramapo and an amazing organization of volunteers,” said Specht. “I was especially gratified to see students giving

back and saying thank you to their teachers. Over 600 teachers’ lives were made a little bit easier as they prepare for the upcoming Passover celebration. Chasdei Lev is an organization we can all be proud of.”

What is a sleep center?
CliCk itdesign 845.445.9646
A sleep center is a medical facility dedicated to diagnosing and treating patients with sleep related problems. Rockland Sleep Center offers the most recent advanced technology in sleep diagnosis and treatments to improve sleep health. We are affiliated with board certified top specialists in the field of sleep medicine who excel in patient care. Approximately 70 million people in the United States suffer from sleep problems, and more than half have a chronic sleep disorder. There are more than 100 types of sleep disorders, which means it’s important to get a proper diagnosis with individualized treatment. Most adults need seven to eight hours of sleep each day. You know you’re getting enough sleep if you feel refreshed when you awaken and remain alert throughout the day. If you consistently have trouble sleeping or are very sleepy while you are awake, you may need a professional evaluation to determine if you have a sleep disorder.
Answer these questions to see if you may have a sleep problem. • Do you feel sleepy during the day even after a good night’s sleep? • Do you often wake up at night and have trouble falling back to sleep? • Have you been told you snore loudly? • Have you been told or suspect you stop breathing while asleep? • Do you have morning headaches? • Do you toss and turn all night? • Do you suffer from high blood pressure? • Have you fallen asleep at inappropriate times, such as while driving? If you answered yes to one or more of the preceding questions you may have a sleeping problem. While this questionnaire isn’t a substitute for a professional diagnosis, it can help you determine whether or not to seek a professional opinion.
What is a sleep evaluation? Obstructive Sleep Apnea Left Untreated
Understanding Sleep Apnea Snoring is often more than just annoying. It may be a symptom of a more serious sleep disorder called obstructive sleep apnea. However, not all people with sleep apnea snore. Usually when you sleep, the muscles that control the upper airway relax; this is normal. However, if they relax too much, the airway narrows and you snore. The muscles can relax even further causing a blockage of the airway and you actually stop breathing. This is called “Obstructive Sleep Apnea” (OSA). Other factors can cause this as well. An enlarged uvula or swollen tonsils, a nasal obstruction or certain facial attributes can also cause OSA. Each episode can last ten seconds or more and has been known to happen hundreds of times a night; disrupting your sleep without you even being aware that it’s happening. Sleep apnea is often associated with excessive daytime sleepiness because your rest is regularly disturbed. However, you may not have symptoms and still have apnea.
In addition to affecting your overall quality of life, Obstructive Sleep Apnea can cause serious health risks.
Cardiac Problems Abnormality Heart rhythms, heart attack and heart failure
Increased Traffic & workplace Accidents
Memory Problems & inability to think correctly
High Blood Pressure
We’re here to help!
Regain control of your life through proper diagnosis and treatment. Our goal is to help you achieve restful, regenerative sleep!
A sleep Evaluation is painless. Each patient completes a questionnaire about their sleep problems. An extensive consultation appointment with a board certified sleep specialist then focuses on your history and symptoms of sleep problems. During this appointment the sleep specialist may determine you require an overnight sleep study.
How will my sleep study be monitored? The sleep rooms at Rockland Sleep Center are private rooms with private bathrooms and showers. The rooms are furnished with full size beds, recliners and cable television. A variety of electrodes and monitoring devices are connected to you during the sleep test. While asleep, our registered technologist monitor your brain wave activity, muscle activity, blood oxygen levels, airflow from your nose and mouth, and your chest and abdomen effort of breathing. After your testing is complete, a technologist will perform an analysis of your recording. The physician will then interpret your test. Once a diagnosis has been made, your options will be explained to you. Together, we determine the most effective treatment for your particular sleep disorder. The most common treatment today is Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP). The CPAP equipment provides a gentle flow of positive-pressure air through a nasal mask to keep your airway open while you sleep, preventing snoring and apnea. You will experience immediate relief and find your energy and vitality restored. While CPAP works in most cases of sleep apnea, other methods might need to be employed to solve your sleep problem. Some less common treatments include oral appliances and or surgery. Your treatments will be most effective if you are fully informed of your condition and follow the prescribed actions that need to be taken to bring you the safest and quickest relief.

MOST SALMON CAN CAUSE DISEASE
Most salmon are fed a high disease causing Processed Omega 6 (PO6) diet & have no healthy Omega 3. WHY?
PO6 is cheaper & has the salmon quickly gain weight. HOW DOES PO6 CAUSE DISEASE?
PO6 disables the crucial function of cell membranes responsible for a healthy transfer of oxygen/hormones in and out its cell. These cells that are now deprived of oxygen and hormones wreck havoc in a variety of ways, which we see as diseases.
BECAUSE YOUR HEALTH MATTERS
BENIGN & MALIGNANT GROWTHS:
Cells start mutating, grow into abnormal growths and start feeding off sugar DIABETES:
Insulin is powerless to lower elevated blood sugar levels, causing weight gain and over time Type 2 Diabetes. HEART DISEASE:

PROLOGUE Bratislava, 5704/1944
With a hungry look in his eyes, he looked into the distance, gripping the wrought iron bars. His cheek already had a reddened imprint of a leaf, left there by the metal carvings, but he didn’t feel anything. His eyes gazed into the night in an effort to see something. But, like every night, nothing happened. He shook the gate and wept quietly, tearlessly and soundlessly. The gate responded with thin wails of its own. Perhaps that was why he didn’t hear the footsteps approaching from behind him. “Gustav, what is going to be with you?” The child shrugged. “Again you’re out here, shaking in your pajamas? Are you waiting for the soldiers to come and kill you, or do you prefer to die from pneumonia?” The man behind him laughed at his usual joke. “Maybe I need to try and leave you outside for one night,” he said. “Come.” And he stuck his big hand into the boy’s small one. “No!” the boy objected. As usual. “Don’t tell me no. Come!” Theodore gripped Gustav’s shoulders forcefully, and the boy writhed away, flailing his arms and legs. He closed his eyes, waiting for the blow. But remarkably, it did not come. Theodore left him alone. Gustav opened his eyes cautiously and saw Theodore standing next to him, his eyes narrowed as he looked very far off into the distance, to the end of the fields beyond the gate. “Are you also waiting for your mother?” the boy whispered. Theodore looked at him with a smile, put a
finger on his lips, and again, looked out into the distance. Gustav tried to figure out what he was seeing, because there really was nothing out there. No one ever came by. “What are you—” “Quiet, I said,” Theodore chided, annoyed. “Maybe I’m seeing soldiers who’ve come to get you. Maybe they saw in their binoculars that you’re standing near the gate. It would be better for you to go inside.” “Don’t want to.” The boy shrugged again. “And there’s no one out there anyway.” “There is,” Theodore replied, and lifted him up. “You see there, at the edge of the fields, someone moving? He’s coming closer.” He put the boy down on the path. “Run to the Father, Gustav, and tell him that someone is approaching the back gate and that he should hide you.” “Don’t want to,” the boy said. “He’ll put me in the cellar. And he doesn’t need to; it’s not soldiers. When the soldiers came last time, Janko told me what happened. A few soldiers came with guns to the main entrance, in the middle of the day. It’s not like now, where this person is coming like a thief in the night.” “I see you suddenly know how to speak,” Theodore murmured, his eyes never moving from the figure advancing directly toward them. It kept falling, rising and plodding on. “At night you usually only know how to say, ‘No, no!’ and cry. What happened?” “I want to see who it is,” the boy said, craning his neck. “Why?” “Because...” He fell silent and pressed his face to the bars of the gate. The figure was very close already, and it continued walking

in their direction. “Mother...?” he whispered. Bnei Brak, 5774/2014
Elisheva wiped her hands on her apron, switched off the tape recorder, and went out to the hallway, peeking behind the brown accordion door of the study. Sudden silence from the boys could be very suspicious, because it was hard to believe that indeed, they’d all finally fallen asleep. Perhaps they’d escaped to the closed porch to see what the girls were doing? Her suspicions turned out to be for naught. The door at the end of the dining room, which led to the girls’ closed-in porch, was closed. The girls were quiet in there, busy with their homework, and they wouldn’t come out until everyone else was asleep. Meir, arms wrapped around his ball, was lying on the couch, seemingly in a deep sleep. Itzik slept on the pullout bed, and his foot — one of the main culprits of that evening’s bickering — was, as expected, resting above him, on the couch next to Meir. Shloimy was on the folding bed; he wasn’t quite asleep yet, but his blank gaze at the ceiling made it clear to Elisheva that he was on the verge of drifting off. Bentzy was lying quietly on the green mattress, his finger stroking the seam between the tiles closest to him, over and over again. The playpen was hidden by the large desk, but the gurgling that she heard indicated that her little one wasn’t falling asleep again so fast, not after being woken up four times in the past two hours. Quickly, before the half-awake ones would see her and become fully awake, Elisheva went back to her fleishig counter, switched on the tape again, and continued cutting vegetables. A few more minutes, and the soup for tomorrow would be ready. Perhaps she should rewind the speech to the beginning, because she hadn’t really been able to concentrate before. She switched off the tape recorder, pressed rewind — and just then the phone rang. Miri. “Hi, Ima?” “Hi, Miri. What’s doing?” “Everything’s fine, baruch Hashem.” Her daughter sounded exhausted. “So why do you sound so tired?” “The kids tired me out. It’s so hard to get them back onto a schedule after yom tov. They forget what circle time is, and what a teacher is, and what picking up toys is all about, and what it means that their mother is leaving but that she’ll be back to pick them up at the end of the school day.” “I really understand you,” Elisheva said as she filled the soup pot with water. “Not that the babies in the day care center are trying to run away from circle time, but they are also confused and crying a lot. Gitty, my coworker, says that they’ve totally forgotten their schedule at day care.” She chuckled.

“And I’m not even talking about myself. But I’ll get used to it also.” “I actually forgot to ask you about that, Ima! How is it going at work?” “Baruch Hashem. The staff is wonderful, and the little ones are very sweet. Sometimes there are hours that are difficult, but...” She listened for a minute in the direction of the kitchen door. What was that sound? Was it one of the children making noise, or was it coming from the street? “But what, Ima?” The noise stopped. Maybe it was the ringing of someone’s phone as he walked in the street. Elisheva went back to her pot with the water, and forgot what she’d wanted to say. “But baruch Hashem, everything’s fine,” she concluded. “I’m sure you’ll do well,” Miri said confidently. “And are the kids getting used to it?” “They have no choice, and when all is said and done, it’s not too bad. There are so many children in the world whose mothers work, you know.” “Yes, when I was Meir’s age, you still worked,” Miri recalled. “I remember that I couldn’t stand Mondays, when you wouldn’t get home until close to four o’clock, and I had to play nicely with Tzippy all that time. How’s she doing? Still in the clouds?” “She doesn’t have time to be in the clouds too much. It’s very intense in school right now.” Elisheva laughed. “But she’ll take off again, I’m sure, b’ezras Hashem.” They spoke for a few more minutes about Tzippy, the kallah, and all the preparations for her wedding that had to be done, and then they hung up. Elisheva wanted to turn on the shiur again, but then Nati called her from the study. She hurried over and saw his head peeking out from behind the desk. He was standing in the playpen and smiled when he saw her, but then his expression turned puzzled, as though he was remembering something. “Birdie!” he said. “Here!” “Where is there a birdie?” Elisheva asked, trying to find a way to get to him. She unintentionally stepped on the edge of Bentzy’s mattress, but he was fast asleep and didn’t stir. “Here!” Nati repeated, looking in the general direction of the big window. Elisheva followed his gaze. The shutters were closed — how could he see a bird through them? Or hear one, during these busy evening hours? He lay down with resignation as Elisheva approached. “Good boy!” she said with a smile, and picked up his pacifier from the floor. “Good night, sweetie.” “Birdie,” he insisted, and pointed at the window yet again. Elisheva stroked his cheek and went over to open the window. As expected, all of the neighborhood birds were safely ensconced in their nests at this hour; not a one was in sight. “There’s no bird-

ie here, Nati’le,” she said, and wended her way out of the room, taking care not to wake any of the sleeping children. “Cuckoo! Cuckoo! Cuckoo! Cuckoo!” Elisheva recoiled and spun around sharply. There was that noise again, and now it didn’t sound like a cell phone ring from outside. It was coming from here, from somewhere in this room. And it was such a familiar yet far-off noise... She stood frozen in place. Meir shifted and muttered something, but none of the other children moved. After all, the noise was not very loud, but it definitely gave her a jolt. She looked to the end of the room, near the window. Her eyes opened wide. In a flash, she dashed by the sleeping children and stood in front of the broken cuckoo clock. She stared at it, at the old clock that her father had given her when he’d moved into an assisted living facility. The old clock that hadn’t worked in more than twenty years. The wooden cuckoo bird stood in the tiny doorway and cuckooed loudly, over and over again. Elisheva was unable to tear her gaze away from it, though she felt rather detached from the stormy reality that had just enveloped her. A faint sense that something was about to change flashed through her mind, but she didn’t have time to dwell on it. The cuckoo bird called, “Cuckoo!” for the 10th time, and then it slowly closed its beak and retreated into the little box, disappearing behind the red wooden door.
CHAPTER ONE “I’m going to warm up the bottles. Should I make a cup of tea for you, Elisheva?” Elisheva stopped rocking the playpen. “Yes, Gitty, thanks.” “In a minute she’ll fall asleep, and then we’ll be able to sit down for a few minutes together,” Gitty said. “How much sugar in your tea?” “One teaspoon.” Elisheva flashed her coworker a grateful smile, which did not convey the fact that she didn’t have too much patience today to sit and chat about this and that. Gitty had been right. After another minute of Elisheva rocking the playpen, Ruchie, the fifth baby under her care, fell asleep. In the second row, where Gitty’s charges lay, it had been quiet for more than five minutes already. Only she, Elisheva, was still running around, putting in a pacifier here, picking up a baby for a hug there, rocking lightly, or tucking in a blanket. It wasn’t so pleasant, taking into account that Gitty was at least seventeen years younger than her and had only one little boy of her own, while she, the mother of thirteen children, was having trouble coping with the multitude of tasks that were part and parcel of taking care of several little ones at the same time. “It’s all a matter of getting used to it,” Mrs. Gottlieb, the day care center director, had told her when she’d hired her. “You have the experience, baruch Hashem, but dealing with several little babies at once is something that even experienced mothers find difficult. Ask anyone who has triplets...and I’m talking about a group of five babies here!”
Elisheva had replied that yes, sure, she understood, and b’ezras Hashem she would make every effort to integrate and to invest her all into taking care of each child. Baruch Hashem, she was doing well — that was true. But next to Gitty, who was already working here for four years, though in terms of age could almost be Elisheva’s daughter, she sometimes felt a bit strange and inferior. The younger woman came back from the kitchen with a small tray containing two cups of tea and some cookies. “That’s it?” she asked. “She fell asleep?” “Baruch Hashem,” Elisheva replied as she sat down at the table in the corner of the room. “Thanks, this was so nice of you.” She slowly made a bracha and sipped the tea. It was hot and sweet, just the way she liked it. She glanced at her watch. It was 11:15 a.m. already. “My Baruch has a virus,” Gitty shared with her. “My husband took him to kollel with him; I had no other choice. Just this morning he developed a fever and was throwing up. I couldn’t tell Mrs. Gottlieb that I wasn’t coming in just a few minutes before I was supposed to be here, and I couldn’t bring a sick two-year-old child here with me, either.” She broke her cookie in half and glanced at her phone. “No missed calls. I hope everything is okay.” Elisheva, who did not usually like it when people fiddled with their phones while they were having a personal conversation, was relieved that now she, too, could glance at her phone and check for missed calls. But no, her phone did not indicate that anyone had tried
April 17, 2019 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 159 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
calling her. She put the phone down on the shelf. “It’s one of the things that I found hard about going back to work,” she said as she sipped her tea. “The fact that I’m not in charge of my own time anymore. Suddenly, there are urgent things that need to be done, things I need to take care of…but I can’t, because I’m here instead.” She smiled. “I don’t want to say I’m stuck, because I shouldn’t complain. Baruch Hashem, I found a good job that I’m happy with; at my age it’s not so simple to go back to the workforce, especially when my training in most fields is about zero.” “You used to be a preschool teacher, didn’t you?” “A thousand years ago,” Elisheva said with a laugh. She glanced at her phone again. She didn’t want to call them, but why weren’t they calling her yet?! What was going on? “How many years were you a preschool teacher?” “Ten years. When my oldest was ten and I had eight children, the school I worked for closed down. It worked out very well for me to stay home and live off the severance pay I received. Then, eventually, I began to look for work. I didn’t really find anything, and my husband and I saw how good it was that I wasn’t working out of the house. So I lowered my job search to a minimum. Then, baruch Hashem, the next few children were born quite close together, and by that point, I was staying home by choice.” She smiled. “Today, I’m trying to be young again.” Gitty was tactful enough not to ask why; it was possible that the simple answer rose in her mind even without her asking. But even if she would have asked, she wouldn’t have gotten an answer, because at that moment, Elisheva got the call she had been desperately waiting for. “Hello?” she said tensely. “What’s going — a boy? A boy! Mazel tov! Baruch Hashem! You sound great, Miri! How do you feel? How
160 / THE MONSEY VIEW / April 17, 2019 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
is the baby?” As if of their own accord, tears began rolling down from her eyes. “The kids will be thrilled...I’ll see when I can leave, and as soon as I can, I’m coming. Feel good, Miri!” “Your daughter?” Gitty asked as Elisheva hung up. “Yes. She had a boy. Our first grandchild!” Elisheva’s eyes sparkled. “Wow, mazel tov! Today’s grandmothers are so young... Now I understand what you meant before about having a hard time not being in charge of your own time. I’m sure you really want to be there right now!” Elisheva gazed into her cup of tea. “But like I told you before, I really can’t complain. Miri had a boy, a healthy child, baruch Hashem, and I...” A tear fell right into the teacup. She laughed and pushed the cup away. “And I got something so sweet! There’s no way I’m going to kvetch if there is a drop of saltiness mixed into it!” “What happened, Elisheva?” Mazal, the teacher of the toddler group, was standing at the door. “You sound really excited!” “She just had a grandson!” Gitty explained in a hushed voice. If Mazal had heard the minor commotion on the phone, then talking any louder was certainly liable to wake up some of the children. Within a few minutes, the whole staff had heard the good news, and a flurry of hugs and warm wishes followed. Even Mrs. Gottlieb came in to say that if things were calm, and Gitty was willing to take over for her, Elisheva could leave five to ten minutes early. Elisheva thanked her gratefully — and right at that moment, the Dvir twins woke up together. Elisheva hurried over, mentally saluting their mother for the hundredth time for managing with these babies at home. At the age of eight months, the twins still didn’t sleep for more than two hours straight, and when they woke up, it was always, always together. So she would leave a few minutes early and run to the hospi-

tal, and before that, she’d call the house to tell the news to whoever came home first…was it Chani today? And she would ask her to warm up lunch for everyone. She would also call her father; she hoped he would be able to hear her well through the phone. He would surely be excited. And the children would be ecstatic and would start making plans for the shalom zachor, and the bris, and everything else that the birth of a new baby involved. She passed a hand over her forehead, and without noticing, her movements grew slower and more sluggish. “So, is there a name in the family that everyone’s expecting the baby to receive?” Gitty asked. Her little break was also over, and she was feeding a blue-eyed, very alert little boy. “Yes, there is someone,” Elisheva said tersely. “Who?” “My father-in-law, alav hashalom.” “So your husband will surely be very excited about this, huh?” “Sure.” Elisheva smiled, but the smile didn’t iron out the creases on her forehead. “Baruch Hashem.” Gitty looked at her for a long moment and then decided to back off. She continued attending to the children, who were waking up one after another, but every so often she glanced over at Elisheva. Something had changed suddenly; she seemed tense and preoccupied. She was acting normal, or at least almost normal — she sang to the babies, fed them, and laughed at their antics — but the crease between her eyes didn’t move from its place. In the end, Gitty just couldn’t contain herself. “Elisheva!” she said, sounding almost like she was scolding her. “You just had a grandson!” “I didn’t forget.” Elisheva smiled, but the smile wasn’t completely happy. There was also rebuke in her tone — and a warning: Don’t preach to me, young lady, whose whole life is still ahead of her. The warning didn’t help. “I’m
glad you didn’t forget — because it sure looks like you did.” Gitty approached Elisheva, wondering how to sound supportive but not nosey. “Is everything okay?” “Baruch Hashem. The baby is healthy.” “Nu?” Elisheva waved her hand, trying to appear nonchalant. “If it would have been a girl, it would have been easier for me, that’s all.” She picked up one of the Dvir twins who was crying again. “But, baruch Hashem, we are only grateful, believe me.” Gitty didn’t understand why having a boy first in the family was less preferable than having a girl, but decided now that she’d better clamp down on her curiosity. She didn’t say anything, and Elisheva, who already regretted her revealing remark a hundred times, was relieved at the pause in the interrogation and didn’t offer another word. What would Gitty think? That she wanted a girl so they could name her after her mother, aleha hashalom? Elisheva would have been very happy if that would have happened, but she hadn’t exactly pinned high hopes on Miri naming a daughter of hers Treina. So they would name the baby Shmuel, after her father-in-law, who had passed away seven months earlier. He had been a good man, a generous person, known for his placid nature. Eliyahu would be overjoyed. And she? She would suppress all of her worries, because as Eliyahu told her, worries wouldn’t solve the problems anyway. If Eliyahu was always able to be as placid and tranquil as his father, then she could also make the effort. Especially in light of the fact that little Shmuel would surely remind her, with his very presence, of what her father-in-law would always say: Hashem planned our path in life in the best possible way. We just need to daven so that the miracles can come down to the world. A generation goes, and a generation comes, and now new Shmuels were coming down to the world.

Making Pesach Without a Pesach Kitchen A S T EP - B Y-S T EP S ER I A L I Z ED SUMMARY BY: CHANA RIVKY SPITZER
you can provide that service, the following does not apply to you. But, I, and I can safely assume many others, would rather spend yom tov morning davening and catching up on some z-z-z’s. And some time on Chol Hamoed out of the kitchen too, please. So learning how to properly divide, freeze and reheat food is the key to really enjoying your hard work. This also helps when guests cancel at the last minute, or company shows up unexpectedly.
or Second Days. But unless you’re feeding a large crowd at every meal, freezing a fullsize pan of kugel is probably not the best idea — some of it will inevitably go to waste. How many times can you smile at the same food in your plate before it goes bad? Either divide your mixture and bake several smaller pans and defrost as many as you need for each meal, or bake one large pan, and once cooled, slice through the kugel with a knife across the length and width of the pan. Then, slide a strip of parchment paper into the space created, thereby dividing the kugel into several sections. Cover well and freeze. Remove as many sections as you need per meal.
Kugels: Most kugels freeze and reheat well, so make a double batch — one for now, another for Chol Hamoed
Blintzes/Pesach lokshen: I personally dislike frying crepes, so the first thing I do once my kitchen is set up
FREEZING, STORING AND REHEATING FOOD
You’ve been on your feet, peeling and chopping, cooking and baking, frying, and maybe tasting, too. The place smells delicious, and you’re pleased that you have what to feed to your crowd. You’re ready to call it a day and hit the sack. And you’re feeling great; with such plentiful food, you’ve got good reason to. It’s only when you look around the kitchen and realize that all this food needs to be stored somewhere, somehow, that you freeze in place, suddenly overwhelmed. Time to learn how to freeze the food instead of yourself. If your troop will only have their food fresh, and

is make a batch that’s big enough to last through the entire yom tov. I slice the lokshen and divide the yield into sandwich bags, making sure I have enough bags for every meal, plus some extra in case of company or larger appetites. I place the bag on the cover of the soup pot to warm along with the soup. You can also warm lokshen by placing it in a pan on the hotplate, with some soup poured over so it doesn’t dry out. Filled crepes freeze beautifully. Line a large pan with plastic wrap. Set blintzes down, making sure they don’t overlap. Cover with more plastic wrap and another layer of blintzes. Keep layering plastic and blintzes. The plastic prevents the blintzes from sticking to one another so you can defrost only as many as necessary. Crepes can be frozen, too, but need to be warmed before filling or they will crack. Soups are great freezer foods, especially the blended variety. To give defrosted soup a freshly blended taste, reheat soup, then quickly whirl with an immersion blender. Chicken/meat: I admit that chicken tastes better when cooked fresh, so I prep it ahead and freeze it ready to cook. Chicken bottoms can be cleaned and placed in a pan with sautéed onions, salt, and even sliced vegetables. Pop the frozen pan — adding some sliced potatoes — into the oven (or onto a blech/hot plate) on Chol Hamoed morning to enjoy a no-fuss meal at night. Chicken cutlets can be coated and frozen layered with plastic wrap. The plastic keeps the pieces from sticking to one another, so you can remove the amount you need each time. If you like a sauce over your cutlets, prepare and freeze in separate containers, then defrost along with your chicken. Ground chicken/meat can be mixed with eggs, salt and spices, and poured into a pan, ready to bake or fry. Meat freezes best, so you can cook a larger amount before yom tov and freeze the rest for Chol Hamoed or Second Days. Add leftover meat from yom tov to your cholent for extra flavor. Fish: Gefilte fish can be frozen raw, or cooked — simply defrost to use. Of course, fish slices are best cooked from fresh fish, but if you’re buying in bulk before yom tov and freezing, the following works well, with minimal change in texture: Fill a Ziploc bag halfway with water, drop some slices in, and zip closed. Lay flat to freeze, separating slices into a single layer. Defrost bags as needed.
Vegetables: Veggies are best cooked fresh, although you can peel, dice or slice, and freeze, ready to be used. Beets are the exception, which I learned when an ambitious kitchen helper peeled all the beets we bought for Pesach and put them up to cook. I had no idea what to do with so many cooked beets at once, so I dropped them into a Ziploc bag, which I put into the freezer. On Chol Hamoed, I defrosted, grated and tossed a salad out of those frozen beets. I served it to my unsuspecting family, and no one was the wiser. I haven’t tried freezing raw potatoes, but I do prep them ahead by peeling and setting them in a bowl of water for up to 24 hours (even longer in the fridge). Speaking of potatoes, if you’ve cooked up a whole pot because on Pesach you need to have cooked potatoes in the house, but they don’t seem to be going that well, try chopping them into small cubes, and warm in a frying pan with some oil. When hot, pour in some beaten eggs and salt. Continue cooking while stirring, until eggs are set, and serve as a filling breakfast or lunch. Reheating food on a hot plate or blech: To keep food from burning at the bottom, fill a large pan with hot water and place smaller pans of food inside. Alternatively, line a pan with parchment paper and place food inside. Pour some water between the pan and paper, adding water as necessary to keep the bottom moist. Wishing you all much hatzlacha in your final preparations! May we be zoche to make Pesach in Yerushalayim still this year with the coming of Moshiach. Chana Rivky

1 onion, diced
1 ripe avocado
1 T. oil
1 T. grated onion
½ cup mayonnaise (recipe to the right)
1 plum tomato, peeled and finely diced
½ tsp. salt
Salt to taste
1 tsp. sugar
1 T. olive oil
1. Saute onion in oil over low flame until very soft and lightly browned.
1. Mash avocado and combine with rest of ingredients.
2. Combine with rest of ingredients.
2. Cover with plastic wrap directly over avocado to prevent discoloring.
½ tsp. salt 1 tsp. sugar 1 tsp. lemon juice
Grilled Eggplant Dip INGREDIENTS
DIRECTIONS 1. Peel tomatoes and slice thinly. (For easier peeling, drop tomatoes into boiling water for a minute, then immediately rinse in cold water. Make a slit in peel and pull off all around.)
1 eggplant ¼–½ cup mayonnaise (recipe to the right) ¼–½ tsp. salt
2. Spread tomato and onion slices on a baking sheet and bake at 400° until browned, about 30 minutes.
1. Loosely wrap whole eggplant with silver foil (leaving top open), and bake at 400° until very soft, about 1 hour (may vary, depending on the size of eggplant).
3. Combine with rest of ingredients.
3. Add mayonnaise to desired consistency. Salt to taste.

2. Cool slightly, then scoop out flesh. Blend until smooth.
Mayonnaise INGREDIENTS 3 egg yolks 2 T. chopped onion 1½ cups oil, divided 2 T. lemon juice 2 T. sugar 1 tsp. salt
DIRECTIONS 1. In food processor, blender, or with hand blender, blend egg yolks with onion until light and bubbly. 2. While blender is running, slowly pour 1 cup oil in a steady stream over yolks. Mixture should thicken. 3. Add lemon juice, sugar and salt. Mix well. 4. Add remaining oil and blend again until just well combined. Note: If your mayo doesn’t thicken during step 1, don’t fret; it happens to all of us (it actually happened to me when I was making the mayo for these pictures). Just blend an egg white well, and then with the blender running, slowly pour the flopped mayo in, and continue with the rest of the directions.

The beis midrash was filled to capacity. All eyes focused on the podium, behind which stood the master maggid, Reb Sholom Schwadron. Delivering a classic talk on the topic of teshuvah, he roused the audience. â€œImagine that the inhabitants of the local cemetery were given the opportunity to return to this world for just one hour. Nar ein shaah, nar ein shaahâ€Śâ€? He intoned repetitively in a slow, moving sing-song.

Such was the power of a maggid. He enthralled his listeners, talking to their very hearts and souls in a most captivating way. The mesmeric style, the traditional rise-and-fall chant, the ability to inspire and arouse an audience to change, to draw closer to the Ribono Shel Olam; it is the hallmark of maggidim of yesteryear. Beloved by All
arrived in a town and noticed signs placarded on the streets announcing his arrival. How did they know I was coming? he wondered. Sure enough, he soon found out that the “Dubno Maggid” publicized in the ads was an impostor masquerading as him! The maggid attended the lecture, wishing to hear what his impersonator had to say. Needless to say, the real maggid was displeased, and he later repeated lessons he’d learned from the experience, in parable form. This counterfeit speech was probably not a singular
Cherished by Klal Yisroel throughout the generations, the maggid often traveled among his fellow Yidden, inspiring them with words of chizuk, stories and parables, in a way that was uncannily attuned to their moods and spiritual needs. An emphatic bang on the shtender, a cry that bounced echoes beyond the walls of the room, and a whisper that spoke volumes. Listeners were hooked. They laughed along and cried along. They felt the maggid’s desire to increase kavod Shamayim, the heart that emanated from within, the sincerity, and the truth. The Dubno Maggid once
Reb Sholom Schwadron
“Look at the door!” he startled the aud ience. “There is the elter bubbe and the rav who passed away last year…and there is Berel and Yankel and Yossel. They’re all coming in!” The stunned listeners all turned to the door, already imagining that they would indeed see their departed friends. “Move over!” Reb Sholom resumed his vivid act, pulling everyone along with his imagination. “The niftarim are asking you to make place for them. ‘We have just one hour. Nar ein sha’ah, nar ein sha’ah!’ they cry.”
Reb Yankele Galinsky
Maggid and the Maggid On Seder night, we introduce Maggid with the four questions. The pages in the Haggadah that follow go on to explain, clarify and answer. The night is specifically set up to be in question-and-answer form, because when one asks a question and gets an answer, the knowledge goes more directly into his heart than it would if he were simply listening to a discourse. In the same vein, maggidim often based their talks on questions posed to them, enlightening listeners with the brilliance and simplicity of their response — directly to the heart.
192 / THE MONSEY VIEW / April 17, 2019 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
occurrence — and it goes to prove how beloved the maggid figure was: guaranteed to draw a crowd! Intensive Self-Work The maggid was a genius in Torah, a gaon in middos and a giant of spirit. He didn’t merely speak. Famous maggidim of recent generations weren’t orators who searched for listeners because they had a need to give something over; they were remarkable men who worked on themselves to attain great heights in Torah, middos and avodas Hashem. Their words spilled forth from the overflowing wellsprings of tochen and hashkafos they grew to attain. Like a fountain that would not run dry, they articulated thoughts and feelings from deep, real places within. This attribute endeared them to listeners, inspiring them to take the messages to heart. Having grown up as an orphan, Reb Sholom Schwadron said about himself that he had every excuse not to turn out the way he did. It was a conscious decision that led him to remain in the world of Torah, eventually becoming a famed orator. The content of a maggid’s speech was often comprised of mussar that demanded inner work and introspection. Yet a successful maggid delivered speeches that were full of wit, candor and wisdom, so that even the most direct rebuke came across subtly enough to be received well by listeners. Reb Yankele Galinsky, for one, had an approach that steered clear of outright mussar, focusing on waking up his audience instead. Perhaps this could be attributed to guidance from the Ponovezher Rav. The Ponovezher Rav once asked Reb Yankele, “A Yid

dreamed that he was in a large forest surrounded by lions, bears, snakes and scorpions. What could be done to help him?” Reb Yankele wondered what the Rav was insinuating. The Rav continued, “I’ll tell you. We could do one thing — we can wake him up so his dream goes away! So, too, with your drashos. There is no need to tell people mussar. Just wake them up from their dreams and then they will improve on their own. Everyone knows his drawbacks… All that is necessary is to wake the listeners from their sleep.” On a Light Note
Profiles of Prominence
Reb Yankele Galinsky repeated this parable in the name of the Dubno Maggid. A child was deathly ill. Without medication he most certainly would not get better. Nevertheless, he refused to take the medicine, keeping his mouth tightly sealed. His parents begged, cajoled and pleaded with him. Still, they could not convince him to swallow the syrup. Suddenly, the father told a funny joke. The child opened his mouth to laugh in response, and the medicine was shoved inside. Oh, how the maggidim employed this technique, peppering their talks with well-placed jokes! Pointing out human foibles and imitating idiosyncrasies in a light way got listeners to laugh

The Dubno Maggid 1741–1804
At 18, Reb Yaakov Kranz became a maggid in Mezeritz. Two years later, he went on to orate in other cities, eventually settling in Dubno, where he lived for eighteen years. The Dubno Maggid was a staunch talmid of the Vilna Gaon, following his derech, as evident in his talks. His works, including a treasure trove of parables, were published after his petirah.
at themselves. To really laugh, and to take a non-judgmental look at themselves, aspiring to actuate real change. With an entertaining sense of humor, Reb Sholom Schwadron was famous for using exaggerated mannerisms in his mimicking. “Hafla v’fela — wonder of wonders!” he would chuckle. Individual Styles Maggidim employed their individual backgrounds and styles in the vital life lessons that they articulated. Mention a mashal, and you’re at the heart of the Dubno Maggid’s legacy. Volumes of parables by the Dubno Maggid were compiled posthumously and are used the world over by teachers and speakers attempting to drive home a point. The Dubno Maggid once explained — using a mashal, of course — how he so eloquently matched fables to current life lessons, always right on the mark. “Once,” the maggid said, “I was

Niftar at 92 years, during the chuppah of his granddaughter. Buried in Har Hamenuchos. Reb Benzion received this name for he was born at the gates of Yerushalayim just when his parents arrived there from Yadel, a suburb of Vilna. Reb Benzion learned in the famous Eitz Chaim yeshivah. He received semicha from Reb Shmuel Salant’s beis din at age 22. The beis din hired him to go from village to village, to teach the halachos of terumos and maasros. Wherever he went, he spoke, always from the heart. Reb Shmuel Salant also appointed him as official lecturer in Yerushalayim.
strolling in the forest and noticed tree after tree with targets drawn upon them. Each one had an arrow exactly in the center. Then I met a boy with a bow in his hand. ‘Are you the one who shot all these arrows?’ I asked. ‘Yes!’ he said. ‘Tell me, how did you always manage to hit the center of the target?!’ ‘Simple,’ the boy replied, ‘first I shoot the arrow, and then I draw the target.’” Reb Yankele was described as “diminutive in stature, but towering in personality.” Reb Yankele Galinsky, a scion of the Novardok school of thought, where bitul hayesh (nullifying all traces of ego and self-centeredness) is of core importance, used to poke fun at himself. “If you ever see a hat walking on the street, know that [Reb] Yankele is underneath it.” On another occasion, he quipped that when he stood near a table, his eye-level reached the tabletop in such a way that all he could see was the part of the cup that was full, rather than the part that was empty! This, he explained, was what kept him in the
Reb Sholom Schwadron 1912–1997
Buried in Har Hazeisim Born in Yerushalayim, Reb Sholom was orphaned from his father at age seven. He became a talmid muvhak of Reb Leib Chasman, and also learned under Rav Elya Lopian, Reb Chatzkel Levenstein and Reb Meir Chodosh. Reb Sholom was a brother-in-law of Reb Shlomo Zalman Auerbach. His speaking career began with the Gemara shiur he delivered to his neighbors in Shaarei Chesed, Yerushalayim. He later became famous for his public Friday night shmeussen in the Zichron Moshe shtiebel in Geulah, earning the title “Maggid of Yerushalayim.”
constant state of simcha that he was known for. Reb Sholom Schwadron, who was orphaned as a child, employed much emotion in his talks. In an instant, Reb Sholom could switch his tone from mournful to happy. One second the audience would be dabbing at their eyes with tissues, and the next, they could be roaring with laughter. He delivered punch lines that drove home his point indubitably, knocking listeners to action. The crowds kept coming back for more. Listening to Reb Bentzion Yadler, one could not help but feel his boundless love for Eretz Yisroel. He journeyed across the breadth of the Land by donkey — the quintessential maggid — visiting little villages and settlements and engaging their inhabitants with his warm words. Despite the sometimes small crowds in these farflung corners, his masterful storytelling brought much enjoyment. He concluded every talk with a passionate, “Hashiveinu Hashem eilecha v’nashuvah,” imparting our deepest yearning for teshuvah and the ultimate Geulah.
Reb Yankele Galinsky 1920–2014
Niftar at 93, buried in Beis Hachaim of Ponovezh, Bnei Brak Perhaps the last of the maggidim of his generation, Reb Yankele perpetuated the character of Novardok, Bialystok. Together with the yeshivah, he was exiled to Siberia. He later moved to Bnei Brak, where he was close with the Chazon Ish and the Steipler. He traveled to immigrant communities throughout Eretz Yisroel, as well as around the globe, delivering passionate drashos.

Pesach is story time. It is a time to gift our children with a precious legacy: the eternal story of Jewish redemption.
200 / THE MONSEY VIEW
SAY THE WORD “STORY” and a child’s face will light up. Stories are that magical, enchanting journey into different worlds and times. They open the door to realities unknown and the mysteries of our world. Storytellers hold the key to this door — and this is what makes them beloved and admired by children…and the inner child of every adult.
Storytelling is an art. Rabbi Leibish Lish’s storytelling career began without planning. As a boy he regularly attended the Tiferes Yonah afternoon program. Tiferes Yonah, originally founded by R’ Shlomo Feldman, z”l, in Boro Park over 30 years ago, offers a learning and inspiration program for cheder-age boys during Shabbos afternoon and off-school hours. Many famous speakers today, such as Rabbi Fishel Schachter and Rabbi Leibish Langer, started out telling children stories there. One day, Rabbi Lish was in the Mount Kisco area, and he decided to visit the kever of Rabbi Shlomo Feldman out of hakaras hatov for all that he’d gained at Tiferes Yonah. There he met Rav Shlomo’s son, and R’ Leibish playfully asked, “Nu, so when will you invite me to speak at Tiferes Yonah?” The idea hadn’t occurred to him until the words left his mouth. Two weeks later, he was asked to speak for the boys at Tiferes Yonah. Since then, Rabbi Lish has lectured in every single yeshivah in the New York area, both in Yiddish and English. He has also traveled to Canada, and as far as England, to deliver his speeches. His storytelling career has been the springboard for various other worthy activities and his involvement in several organizations. Rabbi Lish visits sick children in hospitals to
encourage them and cheer them up. His banner project is support for yesomim. Orphaned himself as an eightyear-old child, he is intimately familiar with the challenge. He visits shivah houses to speak to the yesomim. With his very presence he shows them that there is light at the end of this tunnel, and that life can and will be good. Rabbi Berl Soifer, child storyteller extraordinaire, began his career as a singer and storyteller for other CD producers. Over time, he began composing his own CDs and also opened a private recording studio. He aims to teach children important life lessons through his engaging stories and songs. His “Meister” series is a child’s therapy toolbox, empowering children, through masterfully woven stories, to grow in areas they may be struggling. One of

Rabbi Soifer also has a series that brings Nach alive, where he imparts the knowledge of those periods in Yiddish history in a relatable manner. Last year, he launched a new series with a CD that brings Yetzias Mitzrayim alive.
The Ideal People whose life work is inspiring others must subscribe to a generous helping of idealism — and indeed, they do. Rabbi Lish is clearly driven to giving his entire being for Yiddishe kinder. He acknowledges that this is a gift from Hashem — “No, I cannot point to the ‘key’ to successful entertaining” — that he faithfully uses to educate and inspire the masses.

of children in the Skver community about technology. This was the first event of its kind, later to be replicated in many communities around the globe. He spoke passionately about the dangers of technology and inspired the children to sign a commitment to keep away from forbidden devices. This first assembly was the precursor to many other positive undertakings in that community, and Rabbi Lish is proud and grateful to be witnessing the successful results. Rabbi Soifer reaches children in an authentic, personal way. He sees his job as getting into the mind of a child and tapping into what they really need and want to hear. “It’s not pashut to be pashut” takes on new meaning here. The average adult can carry on a child-geared conversation for five minutes. But engaging in a real conversation involves special wisdom and intuition. Rabbi Soifer equates this with Shlomo Hamelech’s wisdom of understanding animals’ language. One might think, That’s what you call wisdom? To speak to a bird or a lion? The answer is yes — getting down to another’s
Reb Leibish Lish
level, divesting yourself of your being, and getting into another’s mind requires unique talent.
On Stage Storytellers seem almost like magicians, effortlessly pulling off performance after exciting performance with nary a cracked knuckle. But that isn’t so. “Stage fright is normal,” Rabbi Soifer says. And this is true for any entertainer at any level. He does report feeling calmer when he is perfectly ready and has the story laid out in his mind to that last detail.
Rabbi Lish surprises me by sharing that his stage fright is the same whether he faces an audience of 25 or 10,000. It makes no difference that he’s performed in dozens of cities in packed auditoriums. The bigger surprise is that he considers stage fright not just a normal, but actually helpful! It challenges him to put in all he’s got to make it a performance he’ll be proud of. Rabbi Lish puts some secret weapons into use before he performs. He fights fire with fire: Just as his mission is spiritual, so are his tools. First, he says a chapter of Tehillim for hatzlacha; he gives money to tzedakah; and he calls his mother for her blessing, which, coming from an almanah, he believes is especially potent. After going through these “tactics,” he feels confident that his performance will be a success.
A Time to Remember
Reb Berl Soifer recording a CD in his studio
204 / THE MONSEY VIEW
As entertainers with many exciting projects behind them, they’ve had their share of memorable events. Rabbi Lish speaks of a special event by the Bnei Emunim organization, where
Reb Leibish Lish visiting the Skulener Rebb, zt”l
he addressed 13,000 children at a hachnasas sefer Torah graced with the participation of gedolei Yisroel. This was his largest audience, and he felt awed and privileged to be a part of it. The best part? While he was animatedly speaking to this massive audience in the great outdoors, the wind suddenly snatched up the notes clutched in his hands and carried them on its swift wings. But the show went on. Like the master performer that he is, Rabbi Lish just went on speaking. “Everyone has flops,” Rabbi Lish stresses. “What matters is how you get yourself out of it.” The kuntz, then, is not ensuring a foolproof performance, but rather preparing a lot of humor and a can-do attitude. Rabbi Lish remembers an almost-flop, as well. As he was walking up the steps of the stage facing a crowd of 1,000 children, he asked a child what story the previous speaker had shared. What he heard made him stop and turn back. The speaker had told the exact same story he’d planned to tell! But like the excellent actor that he is, Rabbi Lish kept his composure and got onto stage. He lifted his eyes to the Ribono Shel Olam and said a tefillah, took a long breath…and began a different story. But no, he didn’t run home afterward, cheeks aflame with shame. This was one of his best performances yet!
The Impact One of Rabbi Lish’s experiences makes for a great story on its own. He once performed in front of children while recording it as a CD at the same time. The heartrending story told of a boy who was constantly bullied by his peers in camp, and he’d often escape to the woods and cry his heart out there. One day, a kind
206 / THE MONSEY VIEW
staff member spied him in the woods, and he encouraged him and brought him back to the camp. The story ends happily with a contest motivating the boys to treat each other kindly. A few weeks after the CD’s release, Rabbi Lish got a phone call. The man on the line introduced himself and shared that he had just listened to this CD and had bawled throughout. “You think you made up a nice story,” he said, “but it’s a true story. That kid was me!” This man had been bullied 20 years earlier in camp, and he used to escape to the woods, just like the boy in the story. “And you know who pulled me out of the forest? Your father.” Rabbi Lish calls this “regards” from his father, so many years after his passing, sent through one of his stories. Rabbi Soifer shares that the feedback that he receives, which gives him a glimpse of how his work impacts children in real life, makes the hundreds of hours that are invested in each CD worthwhile. One story that stands out in his mind is a struggling young bachur who made a complete turnaround after listening to a protagonist in “Der Meister Shlissel” overcoming his weaknesses. Another boy sent a heartwarming letter of how he was able to resist the peer pressure to purchase unrefined footwear after listening to “Der Meister Frient.” The Skverer Rebbe, shlit”a, who strongly encourages Rabbi Soifer in his work, even asked for a copy of that letter!
For You, Child Performing before children is an art and
talent. How is it different from performing for adults? “Performing for children is both harder and easier,” says Rabbi Soifer. It’s harder because the performer is charged to do a really good job. Children sniff out the truth easily; an entertainer has to really deliver. But once you’ve found your way with children, they’re yours. If you sing well, play a catchy tune, and know how to engage children, they will be your avid listeners. And that’s what makes it easier. Unlike the adult world, where popularity is gained through heavy publicity and social acceptance, children connect to an entertainer who is real. They

don’t necessarily buy a CD that’s heavily advertised or that sports the name of a famous singer on its jacket; they will want to hear their favorite, child-friendly storyteller at bedtime — which Rabbi Berl Soifer is. WHAT STORIES do you tell? How do you make them come alive? An answer to these questions is most certainly an enigmatic smile and an invitation. In Storyland we don’t explain; here we entertain. Now let me tell you a story…

As the yom tov of Pesach approaches, our excitement keeps growing. It’s a special time, one of great spiritual lights, when a great awakening comes down. It’s a special time for us to feel who we really are — bni bechori Yisroel, whom Hashem rescued b’Yad chazakah (with His strong hand) from the fortyninth level of tumah, from the most powerful land in those times, Mitzrayim. The Nesivos Sholom explains that it is written in the Aseres Hadibros: “I am Hashem, your G-d, Who took you out of Mitzrayim,” and not “Who created this world,” because the greatest sign of Hashem’s power is Divine Providence over everything, like we merited to see in Mitzrayim with all the makkos. Moreover, the seforim explain that every year, all the hashpa’os tovos and lights of hashra’as HaShechinah that occurred during the time of Yetzias Mitzrayim are again awakened and brought down to us. Pesach is a time to nullify ourselves to Hakadosh Baruch Hu, to show Him that we believe that everything that happens is Divine Providence and for our ultimate good. Indeed, this is what the Yidden did in Mitzrayim, displaying that they are relying completely on Hashem, and that is what brought the yeshuah for Klal Yisroel. The Apter Rav, zt”l, writes that this nullification is the main avodah of a Yid — to nullify oneself throughout
218 / THE MONSEY VIEW / April 17, 2019 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
the year to Hashem’s Divine Providence. This is what will bring him to a place of real simcha. Maybe that is why we were called bni bechori Yisroel — My son, My firstborn, Yisroel. The name “firstborn” symbolizes that we are privileged to be something very special in Hashem’s eyes. We are the people who have the ability to see that everything occurs with Divine Providence and therefore recognize that we can rely completely on Hashem. I will never forget an experience of many years ago, which occurred after the collapse of the Iron Curtain of the USSR, of communist Russia. Someone from the only shul in Lvov asked me to bring a package of matzos to a very special Yid and his wife for Pesach. He was among those who had been listed in the files of the KGB as someone who violated government laws by practicing religion under the communist regime in Lvov, Ukraine. When I arrived at the couple’s apartment, I rang the bell. An older woman opened the door for me, but she did not let me in. She looked up the stairs of the apartment building, then down. Once she was sure that no one was watching her and trying to catch her violating “the law,” she finally allowed me to enter and thanked me as she took the package. Even though practicing religion was already allowed at that time, she was so accustomed to living with constant fear and hardship that the new reality had seemingly not completely registered yet. The constant fear she had clearly been living with on a daily basis made a deep impression on me; these people had truly nullified themselves before Hashem, giving themselves over completely to Him. Even the most difficult circumstances couldn’t stop them from believing and knowing who they really were, devoted ovdei Hashem who wore the title “bni bechori Yisroel.” As we get closer to yom tov, we want this message to carry over. Chazal, with their wisdom, provided us with the opportunity to give it over at the Seder, empowered as we are with the mitzvah of “v’higadata l’vincha — and you should tell your
son.” We are here to give over the mesorah, which we were zoche to see and receive from the previous generation, to our children. The mesorah always stays the same. However, sometimes the “dust” of today’s society dulls the beautiful shine of the mesorah and requires us to think of more ways to make the experience of a lichtige Seder more geshmak, so that it will leave a strong mark upon the memory of our children — for them to give over to the next generation. During the time of the Beis Hamikdash, we fulfilled the mitzvah of eating the Korban Pesach. One of the halachos of the Korban Pesach is that one must (preferably) eat it together with others. One of the reasons for this is to remember the outstanding achdus among Klal Yisroel at the time of Yetzias Mitzrayim. The Yidden were able to nullify themselves before Hashem as they
that can make them feel as though they are witnessing the incidents of Yetzias Mitzrayim right then. Many children also bring to the table the haggados they created in cheder or school. Because this is one that they worked on themselves, while hearing the rebbi or teacher describe the reason for everything we do, this haggadah has the potential of having a greater effect on them than any other haggadah. For this reason, it is our responsibility to show how valuable that haggadah is, how precious it is in our eyes and in the eyes of Hashem. By acknowledging their haggadah in this way, we will connect them to the Seder being conducted. As parents, we must also remember that the Seder is not about conducting a show of how one leads a Seder, but rather about showing our sincere feelings toward the many great chasadim tovim Hashem Yisborach performed in saving us from the tumas Mitzrayim and making us a nation of bni bechori Even though practicing reliYisroel. This is what the Baal Haggadah means by saying, gion was already allowed at “V’chol hamarbeh l’saper al Yetzias that time, she was so accusMitzrayim — harei ze meshubach”; tomed to living with constant hamarbeh l’saper, enhancing fear and hardship that the the recounting on Seder night, new reality had seemingly not is a result of sincere feelings and real emunah.

HILCHOS CHOL HAMOED
It says in Pirkei Avos that one who disgraces the moed has no share in Olam Haba.1 The Gemara says that one who disgraces the moed is likened to having worshipped avodah zara.2 Many commentaries hold that these maamarei Chazal are referring to someone who does forbidden melachos on Chol Hamoed.3 It is therefore needless to say that it is very important to familiarize oneself with the halachos that pertain to the days of Chol Hamoed. The following are a few common halachos that come up during those days.
Though the reason is so that one shouldn’t enter the moed with dirty clothing, nevertheless, even in a case where one has washed his clothing before the moed and now wants to wash them again, it is still assur because not everyone will know it has been done before and might therefore think it is mutar to be done on Chol Hamoed.10 The issur also applies to washing with a washing machine, because the reason of not entering the moed with clean clothing also applies here.11
Washing/sweeping/vacuuming the floor The halacha is that, generally, work that does not consist of professional tasks and is needed for the moed is mutar to do on Chol Hamoed. Therefore, one who usually washes/ sweeps/ vacuums his floor every week can also do so on Chol Hamoed in a simple way that doesn’t require much exertion.4 But one shouldn’t shine floors and use special brushes to clean them, because these aren’t done often and are considered scheduling work on Chol Hamoed, which is assur.5 Similarly, those who don’t clean their floors every week shouldn’t do so on Chol Hamoed, because this is also like scheduling work for Chol Hamoed, which is assur to do.6 One should also not shake out a rug to get rid of its dust, because it is not something one does often, so it should have been done before Chol Hamoed.7
Washing children’s and babies’ clothing Children who dirty their clothing all the time may have their clothes washed as long as one ran out of clean clothing and is only washing one piece of clothing at a time as needed.12 If one is using a washing machine, then he may wash even a few pieces of clothing (as much as will be needed for the moed) at one time and does not have to wash one and wait until it gets dirty and then wash again.13 One is considered a child approximately until between the ages of four and seven, depending on the maturity of the child in regard to keeping himself clean.14 Babies’ clothing, which get dirty even more often than older children’s clothing, may be washed even a few at a time, even if one is not using a washing machine. However, it is best to wash with a washing machine.15
Washing dishes One can wash dishes that he will need for the moed. Even in a case where he will not need it, it is mutar to do it if he does it so that the house should be clean. In a case where he will leave the house and not come back until after the moed, then he shouldn’t wash the dishes because this would mean working on Chol Hamoed for after the moed, which is assur.8 Washing clothing Even though generally something that is not a professional task and is needed for the moed is mutar, the chachamim nevertheless prohibited washing clothing on Chol Hamoed. The reason for this is just like the reason why the chachamim assured getting haircuts on Chol Hamoed, which is so that one will do it before the moed and enter the moed with a proper haircut. Similarly, here the chachamim assured washing clothing on Chol Hamoed so that they will be washed before Chol Hamoed and the moed will be entered with clean clothing.9

Washing things that get dirty all the time Things that get dirty all the time, such as cloth handkerchiefs, may be washed if one needs them for the moed. The reason is that even if one were to wash it before the moed, he would need to wash it again on Chol Hamoed because it constantly gets dirty.16 In these cases, too, one may only wash them one at a time, as needed for the moed, unless one is washing with a washing machine, in which case one may wash even a few at a time as long as they will be needed for the moed. Someone who sweats a lot, and therefore would not have enough socks and undergarments for the whole moed, may wash his socks and undergarments.17 Some say that this is only if he feels very uncomfortable wearing the sweaty ones.18 Washing stains Many poskim allow one who got a stain on his clothing on
Chol Hamoed to wash the place of the stain.19 Preferably, he should do it while still wearing it.20 If it got stained before Chol Hamoed, then he should wash it before the moed like all other tasks that need to be done before the moed.21 Shaking off dust and brushing hat It is mutar to shake off dust even with a hat brush because this was not included in the issur of washing on Chol Hamoed.22 Extenuating circumstances One who came from a far place, one who was released from capture or prison on Chol Hamoed or immediately before yom tov, one who was put in nidui and was taken off of it on Chol Hamoed, as well as one who made a neder to not wash his clothing and was matir the neder on Chol Hamoed may wash his clothing on Chol Hamoed.23 However, one who didn’t wash their clothing for other extenuating circumstances, even those that weren’t his fault, may not wash his clothing on Chol Hamoed.24 The reason for this is that in the cases above it is clear to everyone that he wasn’t able to wash them before the moed. However, other personal reasons for not washing one’s clothing aren’t clear to everyone, and therefore, washing clothing in such circumstances may cause others to wrongly learn from him that it is mutar to wash clothing on Chol Hamoed.25 One who has only one set of clothing If one has one set of clothing, then it is mutar for him to wash that set on Chol Hamoed.26 Some say that one who hadn’t washed his clothing before Chol Hamoed may not wash them even if he has only one set of clothing; but others argue and allow even one who hadn’t washed them before yom tov to do so.27 But even according to the lenient opinions, one should l’chatchilah wash them before yom tov. One who has only one set of Shabbos or yom tov clothing, but has other weekday clothing that are not befitting for yom tov, is considered as having one set of clothing, and he can wash his Shabbos or yom tov clothing on Chol Hamoed.28 But if he has two or more sets of Shabbos or yom tov clothing and both of them became dirty, he may not wash them because the heter was given only for someone who has only one set of clothing.29 Ironing Most poskim hold that unprofessional ironing is mutar if it is needed for Chol Hamoed.30 One should only iron to take out wrinkles, but not make new lines that last a long time.30 It is best to iron before yom tov. 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 halacha says that clothing of babies may be washed even a few at a time even if one is washing by hand because they get dirty all the time. However, it seems that today, when we use diapers that one throws out, it is not clear if this heter applies because they are not constantly getting dirty to the point where they constantly need new ones (unless they constantly throw up, as some babies do). Therefore, it is best to wash with a washing machine when one wants to wash more than one
See Shulchan Aruch 531:3.
26 Shulchan Aruch 534:1. See Mishnah Berurah 534:9 and Kaf HaChaim 534:11, that some hold this heter doesn’t apply today because we don’t have eizoro mochiach. But since the Rif, Rambam and Rosh are meikel, one can certainly be meikel.
See Kaf HaChaim 534:12, where he brings a machlokes. See Igros Moshe, Orach Chaim, Vol. 1, 163, who brings a raayah from Tosfos to be meikel. See also Chol Hamoed K’hilchasah 5:6 in the biurim where he discusses this at length. 27

Though family resemblance may be lacking, the horseradish is cousin to broccoli, cabbage, mustard and wasabi.
Speaking of wasabi… Do you love the kick of that condiment with your sushi? Chances are that you actually love horseradish. Wasabi is expensive and difficult to grow, unlike its cousin, making green-dyed horseradish the secret solution to your sushi needs.
Horseradish is an exceptionally easy plant to grow. Gardeners know that once planted, horseradish, being perennial, will come back again and again and again… Not only does it return, but it does so very enthusiastically. For that reason, it’s best planted at the edge of a field to prevent it from overrunning other types of vegetation.
Horseradish roots can grow as long as 20 inches, while the leaves and flowers can stand up to five feet tall.
Horseradish is a hardy plant, capable of surviving extreme winter temperatures, even as low as -20F! The root plant actually requires cold periods during its growing cycle.
Horseradish is a vegetable that is still mostly planted and harvested by hand.
Around 60 to 80 percent of the world’s horseradish is grown in Collinsville, Illinois. The town also hosts the yearly International Horseradish Festival, which includes activities such as a horseradish-eating contest and a recipe contest.
Imagine that fields of horseradish plants smell pungent? Not exactly. The overwhelmingly heady fragrance of horseradish only appears when the root is crushed, setting off a chemical reaction that results in that “straight to the brain” feeling you get after grating maror.
That pungent chemical reaction created by crushing the horseradish is part of the plant’s natural defense system, helping repel animals that would otherwise love to eat it.
Despite its name, horses and horseradishes really don’t go together. Consumption of the plant can be fatal for horses.
So where’d horseradish get its name? Multiple theories abound. Some say that the English mistook the German name for horseradish, meerrettich, as a compound word made of mahre (meaning “mare,” aka, a female horse), and rettich (meaning radish). They then took that translation and called the vegetable by that name. Others claim the name was thus called because of an old European custom called “hoofing,” in which horses would stomp on the roots to make them easier to shred. Yet others claim that the “horse” in horseradish is meant only in a figurative sense, focusing on the roots’ obvious strength and power.

Horseradish has long roots (pun intended) in history. It’s been used as both a food and as medicine for many years.
In some parts of the U.S., horseradish used to be known as “stingnose.”
AS FOOD In the U.K., horseradish is grated and mixed with vinegar. Mustard/horseradish blends are also popular.
In Germany, lemon juice is frequently used in place of vinegar.
In Russia, horseradish is commonly mixed with grated garlic and tomatoes.
The first bottled horseradish was sold in the 1860s, making it one of the first convenience foods.
AS MEDICINE Horseradish root was used by the Greeks as a rub for lower back pain, and by early Americans as a rub to treat headaches.
There are currently many studies published on the potential health benefits of horseradish. A study done by the University of Illinois suggests that upping intake of dietary horseradish can be a positive step in preventing dreaded diseases, due to anti-carcinogen enzymes in the plant. Horseradish is high in vitamin C. It also contains potassium, calcium, magnesium and oils, which may have antibacterial properties — though you’ll likely not be able to eat enough of it to gain those benefits.
People claim to have used the root to treat UTIs, bronchitis and chest colds.
Congested? A whiff of freshly grated horseradish can clear out those sinuses in a flash. Want to up the congestion-clearing action? Try this recipe: Combine a grated 8-inch long chunk of horseradish root with 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar, 2 tablespoons water and a pinch of salt. Eat three times a day (if you can tolerate the smell and taste!).
KEEP YOUR CHREIN FRESH WITH THIS SIMPLE RULE: To keep it hot, keep it cold! Always refrigerate your chrein.

unparalleled, otherworldly Kol Torah they succeeded in 1200 bochurim! A wedding creating a kiddush Hashem hall transformed into a Bais of epic proportions. Medrash! Retzufos Seder The kiddush Hashem began at during Bein Hazmanim! the entrance. Posters stating This past Thursday night, I “Disconnect – In Order to attended the annual Vhaarev Connect” encouraging the Na “Simchas HaTorah.” The bochurim to turn off their Vhaarev Na program, the phones, greeted them as they brainchild of Rabbi Dovid entered. Imagine over 1000 Newman, is not merely a teenage boys and not one boy learning program but a on his cell phone. It felt closer lifestyle, where bochurim to being in the great Yeshiva learn and then chazer again of Volozhin in the 1800’s than and again until they “own” the in Monsey in 2019. gemara. I watched 1200 bochurim gather into the hall to begin a three hour retzufos seder with tremendous hasmada. This was the first day of Bein Hazmanim, following a six month winter zman, yet the atmosphere was like that of the first day of the zman. I took a quick glance at what my tablemates were learning. One set of chavrusos were As the seder ended, Harav chazering Masechtas Yissocher Frand rose to Succah, another were about address the crowd. “I have
to complete Taanis for the been in Yeshiva for 56 years eighth time. Through this and have seen thousands
of bochurim,” he said. “The ones who are successful are not the ones with the most kishron but the ones with the greatest ratzon.” The room was full of those who, through persistent chazara, have developed that great ratzon.
wasn’t surprised. “Have you ever seen the Chosson stand on the sidelines? Tonight, everyone here is the chosson. Of course they’re all dancing!”
As we sat down to a lavish dinner, Rabbi Avrohom Mordechai Newman, MC for the evening, introduced Then came the highlight. his brother by comparing The misaymim, those who Vhaarev Na to a fire that had mastered an entire masechta, were asked to come up to make a joint siyum. Hundreds of boys surged forward, each glowing with pride. The Y’hei Shmei Raba literally shook the walls. Then came the dancing. Bochurim from 35 different yeshivos and backgrounds all held hands, dancing together with overflowing simchas haTorah. A band member commented that he’d played at weddings for 10 years but never before had he witnessed a crowd in which everyone, without exception, were all part of the dancing. But Rabbi Newman
is spreading rapidly and creating a passion for learning in the hearts and minds of thousands of today’s bochurim. Rabbi Dovid Newman began his remarks by welcoming each of the 35 yeshivos by name, making
each one feel special and appreciated. “The greatest display of simchas haTorah and chashivus haTorah is 1200 bochurim dancing with such a bren for the sake of Torah, without a drop of alcohol, showing themselves and Avinu shebashamayim what really makes us high,” he exclaimed. Rabbi Mordechai Wolmark, Rosh Hayeshiva of Yeshiva Sharei Torah where Vhaarev Na originated ten years ago, then shared a powerful message. Mastery over Shas seems so far and distant. But Vhaarev Na enables you to be “koneh” a masechta. Once you are “koneh” one masechta, Shas is well within reach. We were then honored to hear from one of today’s greatest askonim, a man who carries the financial achrayus of klal Yisroel on his shoulders, R’ Shlomo Yehuda Rechnitz. He shared a lesson of everlasting profundity. “I wish I would have a way to
convey and convince you that a blatt Gemara is more enjoyable than any pleasure in this world!” Coming from an individual who has tremendous economic success made the relevance of his message speak volumes. His moving words shared with such passion, pierced the hearts of the bochurim, all well aware of the material pleasures this world has to offer. R’ Shlomo Yehuda then presented two gifts to a brand new song which he the bochurim. The first was composed in honor of the event to the words of “Kulanu Yodei Sh’mecha.” The second was an offer to leather-bind every bochur’s well-worn gemara, according it the honor it so rightly deserves.

A number of bochurim also addressed the crowd. They spoke passionately of their own personal experience with “Vhaarev Na,” how it transformed their lives and infused it with simchas haTorah. Their ideas were thematic.
Before Vhaarev Na, learning was challenging, even bitter. Vhaarev Na introduced them to a world where Torah learning could be not only sweet, but the very essence of who they are. One bochur described chazara as the royal spice which allows access to the true sweetness that lies within the Torah. Some described how they find themselves thinking in learning while exercising, or even in bed while dreaming! What made this particularly unique was the
kabbalos for the “day after.” Each bochur received a kabbalah card to fill out; how many blatt or hours they were pledging to learn over bein hazmanim. Incredibly, over a 1,000 cards were given in!
I say “You are the heartbeat of Klal Yisroel”! On April 11, 2019 twelve hundred bochurim, from all across the world gathered to celebrate the incredible feeling that comes from chazering, clarity and ownership. As they learned, sang, and danced, the outside world, its challenges and temptations, were reduced to absolute irrelevance. And up in Shamayim, Hashem was surely smiling upon His precious children, Chazu Chazu bonai chavivai….
The final part of the evening was an uplifting kumzitz. The bonds that were created through Torah were now strengthened through song. Rabbi Chaim Nosson Segal’s message thundered through the hall. In the past event I have referred to you as the heroes and royalty of Klal Yisroel, more information tonight For regarding the Vhaarev Na program please visit Vhaarevna.com or email Rabbi Dovid Newman at email@example.com.

Brethren around the world assist Tov V’Chesed with record pre-Pesach food distribution In
what has become Israel’s premier Pesach food drive, this year’s distribution by Tov V’Chesed saw its greatest effort to date as staff and volunteers wrapped up the season by delivering close to 1,200,000 pounds of food items to over 40,000 children of poor and impoverished families. The costs of this initiative were covered by the generous donations made by Jewish communities around the world. In the weeks leading up to the distribution, tens of thousands of mailings were sent out to Tov V’Chesed supporters. The tremendous response enabled the organization’s largest effort to date. Leadership at the organization, headed by the renowned R’ Yaakov Eliezer Shisha, has expressed gratitude to all those who came to their assistance. Due to the unprecedented support, tens of thousands of recipients were able to receive a Pesach package stocked with chicken, matzah, wine, fruits, vegetables and much more. One aspect of the Tov V’Chesed distribution that has earned praise from receiving families is the dignity with which the assistance is provided. Instead of adding shame to their struggles by making them drag their food
bundles through the streets, Tov V’Chesed enlists an army of volunteers who drop off the aid packages at the doorstep of each recipient. This approach is a unique one and is just one of the reasons why this distribution is considered the gold standard in the Jewish world. This year, the organization set out on a mission to assist every family that reaches out for support. For years, the list of requesting families grew longer and longer and the organization’s leadership was unable to meet the demand. Rabbi Shisha shared that this feeling would gnaw at him throughout the Seder night and all of Pesach. This year, he was determined to see to it that no hungry child is left behind. To that end, Tov V’Chesed significantly expanded its fundraising and logistics operations. A larger warehouse space was rented, more volunteers were enlisted to assist with packaging and delivering, and more effort was put into the fundraising operations. The results speak for themselves as thousands of families all over the holy land each received a delivery of 8-10 large boxes containing over 40 different food items. As the food distribution wrapped up, it was clear that Klal Yisroel came together to do Kimcha D’Pischa the right way, and brought Simchas Yom Tov to thousands of destitute families.
