FAQ #6

Reserve your spot today! 845.826.6767

WILL THE METHOD YOU TEACH IN YOUR FOOD FOR LIFE COURSE WORK FOR ME? The method has core principles which should be followed but is very exible. Each parent makes it work within their personality and family dynamics. The method is taught in a fun, practical and interactive way so that you come away with a real understanding and appreciation of the method and can learn how to incorporate this into your family meals and life choices. The results which families have seen are astounding!

MUMOIN CHECK CASHING

(Re: The Fruit Board, Issue 235) Thanks for a wonderful magazine. Being that your magazine is so popular, I feel obligated to make you aware of an issue that may negatively impact the many Yiddish kinder you reach. Food, and especially its presentation, is a big deal in today’s day and age, and that’s wonderful! It’s great that creative people out there have this healthy outlet, and that Hashem’s beautiful world is accentuated. However, let’s remember that we are Yidden and that we have to be careful with what we eat and how we eat it. Strawberries with their green stem are beautiful and appetizing, but fruits that are halachically permissible are even more beautiful! Miriam

When reading last week’s Tu B’Shvat edition, I was pleased to find a list compiled from the New Square Kashrus Council, which included information on various fruits and their levels of bug infestation. As I turned to the recipe section, I noticed that there were recipes that included fruits in their ingredients that were clearly ruled by the NSK as forbidden to eat due to infestation. About blueberries, the NSK stated, “Blueberries have been found to have a high rate of infestation and should not be used.” The same was written about strawberries.

UPGRADING... These fruits, in addition to some others, were clearly displayed in the pictures and in the list of ingredients. (The strawberries shown were completely whole with the leaves still attached. Even hechsherim that are more lenient than the NSK do not allow strawberries to be eaten in such a form!) Not only was it disappointing to find contradictory information printed in your magazine, there is also the risk of causing a less knowledgeable Jew to mistakenly eat bugs as a result of innocently following a recipe printed in a kosher magazine. Printing a magazine that will reach a large population is a great responsibility, and care must be taken that ideas and information displayed are in strict accordance with Torah values and halachic rulings of today’s rabbanim.

QUESTIONS ABOUT CLEANING

Teens & Adults

(Re: Bite-Size Pesach Cleaning, Issue 235) Thank you so much for your guide to Pesach cleaning — I look forward to participating! I have a question about the solution that you suggested to use for cleaning pillows and comforters. It seems appropriate for top loader machines. Would it work in a front loader, too? And if yes, where would I pour in the mixture — directly into the machine or in the detergent compartment? Three cups of water seems a bit much for the detergent compartment. Thank you so much for helping us get to Pesach in an easy, calm (and even exciting!) manner. B. Klein

This Is For You!

TZIRI HERSHKOVITZ RESPONDS: When using the recipe in a front loader, make sure to dissolve the ingredients fully in very hot water before adding it to the washing machine. Try “deflating” the pillows as you put them into the machine, and then pour the ingredients directly onto the innermost pillow. It is also a good idea to put the cycle on a SOAK setting before proceeding with the regular wash. Hatzlacha!

Just In! Beautiful new styles especially for teens and adults.

I’m confused about an ingredient in the whitening recipe mentioned in the Pesach program. Where can I get Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda? I’ve tried asking for it at my local grocery, and all I managed to get my hands on is Arm & Hammer baking soda, but I’m quite sure that’s not it. A Reader TZIRI HERSHKOVITZ RESPONDS: Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda is sold in most large superstores like Walmart. Essentially, it is pure sodium carbonate and works amazingly well as a laundry booster. If it is difficult to locate, “super washing soda” can be created at home from baking

soda. The instructions are relatively simple: In an oven preheated to 400°, pour a ½-inch-thick layer of baking soda on the bottom of a baking dish. Bake for approximately 1 hour, stirring once halfway through. Once the texture thins, allow it to cool and pour into an air-tight jar.

A JUXTAPOSITION (Re: Bite-Size Pesach Cleaning, Issue 235) While I usually enjoy your magazine, reading it this week left me upset. The fact that “Pesach is inching closer” is “not quite bad news, but an awareness you might have been hoping to avoid”? Pardon me for disagreeing, but a yom tov given to us by Hashem is reason for rejoicing, and many of us do genuinely look forward to it properly — without stress. The article was terrific and very well written; it gave the readers hope and energy, and the optimism that yes, we can clean our houses and make every corner spotless. However, it should have been printed in one of your June or July issues, when so many people are off from work and have the extra time to focus on house-cleaning. It is misconceptions like this one that are the cause of the needless pre-Pesach anxiety many women feel. We are only obligated to search for actual pieces of chometz. My rav once told me a bedroom should take between ten and fifteen minutes to clean, twenty if it has a lot of things in it. In his words, “open the drawers, pick up the clothes, and look for pieces of chometz the size of Cheerios or larger. Unidentifiable crumbs remain in the drawer. Put clothes back.” In areas that you don’t eat, you are only searching for, and removing, actual pieces of chometz, not crumbs. It is an inspection that is relatively easy to perform. Don’t just believe me; ask your rav. I loved the article. But the juxtaposition between its content and “Pesach” bothered me; the two have nothing to do with each other. A Balabusta Who Doesn’t Stress Pesach

A FAMILY FAVORITE (Re: The Cuckoo Clock) I’d like to share with you that every week when I return home after running errands on Wednesday, I sit down to read The Monsey View, and the first page I turn to is the serial. I enjoy it so much that I call my children and grandchildren to read it, who, in turn, enjoy it too! M.S. C U S T O M

Luxurious Standards Meet

Since the first residents moved into Ramat Givat Zeev 18 months ago, the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive It’s been a year and a half since the first residents moved into RGZ, and the excitement of living in Ramat Givat Zeev is genuine and constantly growing to all those who enjoy it as residents, guests and future owners. According to members of this brand-new upscale community, the reason is clear. Never before has an entire neighborhood been built to such a high standard with many of the founder’s proposed goals fulfilled in the initial stages of occupancy. Already in the beginning stages, Ramat Givat Zeev gained publicity by virtue of the quality residents who purchased there – doctors, lawyers, rabbis, businessmen, university professors, and hundreds of families from abroad. It was the first frum neighborhood built in Israel to such a high standard, and word spread across the Jewish world. Since the first group of residents moved in, the achdus, positivity, friendship and unity among community members has attracted more and more families. The community feel, the friendly neighbors and the peaceful atmosphere have resulted in a quality of life above and beyond accepted norms in most chareidi communities. The infrastructure is also built to a standard previously unheard of, with shuls, schools, gardens and greenery all around, plenty of parks, and a huge community center to open later this year. Avi Weinstock, a well-known figure in the community and one of the first residents, recommends Ramat Givat Zeev for families interested in a quality life style with proximity to Yerushalayim. “I came here because I wanted an upscale neighborhood without having to compromise.” Weinstock, a longtime Yerushalayim resident who previously lived in Ramot and Givat Zeev, says he and his family couldn’t be happier. “After purchasing, I remember thinking that if they’d give me everything they promised, I’d be in great shape. Practically speaking, I found, and I know I’m speaking for most of the other residents, that I received much, much more!” These beautiful, spacious apartments – a rarity among apartments built for the chareidi sector – come along with large rooms, an aboveaverage technical standard, as well as quality of life. “There is room for the kids to run around, parks, basketball courts, a tennis court and tended gardens. My son can go out and play or ride his bike with friends, and my wife and I feel completely at ease that he’s safe.” Weinstock has only words of praise for his neighbors. “The neighborhood has attracted the finest frum families, creating

a sense of community that you don’t find in many other places. I know of families who came here specifically because of the Talmud Torah.”

On Vacation All Year Round Yehuda Meshi-Zahav, head of the ZAKA rescue and recovery organization, moved into Ramat Givat Zeev several months ago. “As far as I’m concerned, where I live is Greater Yerushalayim,” he explains with a smile. “We’re just 15 minutes away from the center of town, and can get anywhere with ease. “Ever since I moved into my new apartment, wherever I go, I start making comparisons. And I can tell you that my home is always nicer. The standards are much higher than you’ll find in other neighborhoods, the prices are affordable, and we enjoy a quality of life that you have to experience to believe. “I feel as if I’m on holiday all year round. The kids too – they have many more parks than in most other places, with big, open green spaces and special playground equipment.” Meshi-Zahav notes with satisfaction the special feeling that exists in the community. “Everyone feels at home here. It’s something rare that is not to be taken for granted. We have Americans, Europeans and Israelis all learning together. There are Tehillim groups and lectures for the women, avos uvanim for fathers and sons, and many inspirational community events. On Simchas Torah, over 300 families held a communal seudah! Where would you find such a thing?!”

“Israel’s Most Beautiful Neighborhood” The Chish Nofei Israel company succeeded in creating a precedent in real estate in Israel when it built an entire neighborhood, including all necessary services, prior to occupancy. Reporters and senior real estate professionals who toured the site in the course of construction expressed their amazement at the luxurious standards, praising Ramat Givat Zeev as

“the most beautiful neighborhood in Israel.” From the outset, the marketing campaign for Ramat Givat Zeev attracted many residents from abroad who had been thinking about Aliyah, but were concerned they wouldn’t find a place that would meet their basic requirements.

Because of the Chinuch and Warmth of Rabbi Horowitz When the neighborhood was still in the planning stages, one of the first questions potential purchasers asked was about the chinuch. In this respect, too, the developers invested uncompromising efforts to find the right fit. Ramat Givat Zeev’s schools are headed by Rabbi Avraham Horowitz, one of the community leaders, and formerly the principal of the largest Jewish school in Chile. Rabbi Horowitz agreed to leave the educational empire he’d built up over 25 years, making Aliyah with the express purpose of creating an outstanding, nurturing chinuch environment that would be uniquely suited to the residents of the new neighborhood. “Our community is made up of those who affiliate themselves primarily with the chareidi world because they themselves attended chareidi institutions in their formative years, but who are looking for the benefits of community life, something sorely missing in the Israeli chareidi society,” Rabbi Horowitz observes. “B’ezrat Hashem, we opened the doors to our school, Torat Chessed, at the beginning of this year. It is indeed shaping up to be a community school, in part due to our demographics, but mainly because of the overwhelmingly positive attitude toward the school. The families hail from Ramat Givat Zeev and from the surrounding areas of Givat Zeev, Har Shmuel, and Ramot, and they have been tremendously supportive of our initiatives and of the school in general. Our experienced staff feels incredibly blessed with the positive feedback from our parents, and constantly rave to me about the unparalleled level of parent participation. “Due to these initial reactions to our efforts and the general demand for schools such as ours (mamlachti chareidi), we’ve already opened next year’s admission process, from kindergarten through fourth grade, for both boys and girls. Indeed, these are auspicious beginnings for our community school!” The recently increasing Aliyah wave brings along an extreme increase in prices. For that reason, many families are taking advantage of this tremendous opportunity, and are now making Aliyah, a decision that is not easy, but one that these families know is so right at this time.


By: Malka Schneps

PA RS H A S Y I S RO Little Chaim and little Yanky were running around as their mothers chatted nearby. All of a sudden, the two boys ran into the street where a delivery truck was approaching, heading straight for the two boys. Thankfully, the driver spotted the children and slammed on the brakes, stopping just in time to avoid a disaster. The two mothers screamed and ran to retrieve their sons, pulling them to safety on the sidewalk. Chaim’s mother grabbed him by the arms and turned him to face her. “Don’t you ever run into the street! EVER! You could have been hurt or even killed, chas v’shalom!� she screamed at him. Then she burst into tears of relief and pulled Chaim into a tight hug. As Chaim listened to his mother’s sobs, and as he felt her tears drip onto him, Chaim knew he would never frighten his mother like that again. He would stay out of the street. Meanwhile, Yanky’s mother took a softer approach. She took Yanky by the hand and gently led him to the sidewalk.

TEFILLOS. 82 / THE MONSEY VIEW / February 12, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

Yanky’s mother looked down at Yanky and smiled. “Yanky, zeeskeit, you gave Mommy a big scare. Please don’t run into the street again, okay?â€? The two mothers delivered the same message, but in vastly different ways. Which child is more likely to have not only heard but also listened to and internalized the message? Which child is less likely to run into the street again? Only one child is likely to be ready to answer along the lines of naaseh v’nishmah, and say, “Yes, Mommy — I have heard you and I understand. I will listen.â€? That child is the one whose mother gave over the vital message with a fiery passion. When the Torah describes Matan Torah, the lashon greatly emphasizes the dramatic fire and loud noise with which the Torah was given, as it says in this week’s parsha, “Vay’hi vayom hashlishi bih’yos haboker vay’hi kolos uv’rakim v’anan kaveid al hahar v’kol shofar chazak m’od‌ — It came to pass on the third day at morning that there was thunder and lightning‌ and the blast of the shofar was powerful, and the entire nation that was in the camp trembled‌ And Har Sinai was all in smoke because Hashem had descended upon it in fire, and its smoke ascended like the smoke of a furnace, and the entire mountain quaked violently. The sound of the shofar was becoming stronger and stronger‌â€? (Shemos 19:16,18–19) Hashem gave us the Torah with great fire and loud noise. Likewise, when we teach Torah to our children, we must do so with fire — with hislahavus. That does not mean that we should give the Torah with anger, chas v’shalom, but with a passion. The more passionate we are about Torah, the more likely it is that

When we teach Torah to our children, we must do so with fire — with hislahavus.

the Torah be emblazoned into the hearts, minds and souls of our children. We need hislahavus in the way that we ourselves perform our avodas Hashem, and we need hislahavus in the way in which we teach Torah to our children. A child cannot grasp the great importance of our mesorah. But a child does look up to the adults in his or her life and values what he or she perceives to be important to the adults. The word mashpia comes from the word shapua, which means an incline. An incline, such as a roof, allows water to flow down. Our values flow down to our children, so in order to properly impart the Torah to our children, we must keep the Torah ourselves, and we must do so with passion. Now we see all the more why the actions of Amalek were so evil. Rashi cites the Midrash Tanchuma regarding the pasuk, “Remember what Amalek did to you… how he encountered (karcha) you along the way…” (Devarim 25:17). The word karcha has the shoresh kar, which refers to heat and cold, so the pasuk can also be rendered, “Remember what Amalek did to you… how he cooled you off (karcha) along the way…” Amalek cooled the fire in our hearts for avodas Hashem. We can see this using gematria. If we remove the fire from Yisroel — removing the letters aleph and shin — then the gematria of the remaining letters yud, reish, and lamed is the same as the gematria of Amalek. Cooling our hislahavus not only endangers our own avodas Hashem, but it also threatens our ability to pass down our mesorah. May we all stoke the fires of passion for Torah in our hearts, and in doing so, pass on our mesorah to future generations.

In Big Win for Yeshivah Parents, State Postpones Implementation of NYS Private School Education Guidelines An exceptionally large number of public comments had the New York State Department of Education postponing any decisions regarding potential guidelines that could regulate private school education. Under state law, the DOE is required to review all public comments before approving any new guidelines. In a statement released this past Monday, Board of Regents Chancellor Betty Rosa said that public feedback plays a crucial role in any policy changes that could affect private schools statewide. During a state-mandated comment period that ran from July 3 to September 3 this past summer, the DOE received more than 140,000 responses regarding its proposed regulations that could potentially mandate an expanded curriculum in all of New York’s private schools. DOE personnel are continuing the review process, which is proving to be far more time-consuming than originally anticipated, prompting the announcement that no decisions would be forthcoming at this time. In its statement, the DOE acknowledged that many of the comments expressed concern that the suggested guidelines would infringe on personal rights and run counter to parents’ religious beliefs, in addition to limiting the unique education offered at private schools. Interim DOE Commissioner Shannon Tahoe said that the agency would re-engage with the private school community to further discuss any possible educational guidelines. According to Hamodia, Tahoe said that the number of comments received was unprecedented, a factor that influenced the DOE’s decisions to postpone any changes at this time.

An Epic Display of Kavod HaTorah at Dirshu Siyum in Newark The wave of Daf Yomi siyumim that has been sweeping North America since late December

88 / THE MONSEY VIEW / February 12, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

came to a final, triumphant climax this past Sunday as Dirshu celebrated the culmination of the 13th cycle of Shas at three venues in Newark, New Jersey. Dirshu had originally planned to hold its siyum at the Prudential Center arena, whose capacity varies from 17,500 to 19,500 seats, depending on the event. But as ticket sales progressed at a dizzying pace, Dirshu added two more venues for its siyum, expanding the program to New Jersey Performing Arts Center and the New Jersey Symphony Hall, with an exclusive women-only event. Well over 45,000 people turned out for the Dirshu siyum, which was graced by the presence of rabbanim, roshei yeshiva and dayanim who came from near and far, including the Sanzer Rebbe, shlit”a, Rabbi Dovid Cohen, shlit”a, Rabbi Shimon Galei, shlit”a, and Rabbi Aharon Taussig, shlit”a. Thousands more listened on live streams that were broadcast over phone lines and other media outlets. Hamodia reported that the first speaker of the evening was Rabbi Zev Smith, who said that the intense learning and chazarah of the Dirshu program creates a magnificent, bejeweled crown for Hakadosh Baruch Hu. Rabbi Smith called on Dirshu participants to spend even more time in the beis midrash, while simultaneously crediting the wives for their dedication. “Teyereh Yidden,” said Rabbi Smith. “If there is so much limud haTorah going on, it is because there are n’shei chayil who realize that their greatest pleasure is to shpatzir zich (take a stroll) with their husband’s kol Torah.” In his address to participants, Rabbi Taussig noted that the siyum was being held on Tu B’Shvat, a day that is well known for its ability to bring greatness into the world, adding that the first Siyum HaShas had been held exactly


89 years ago. Rabbi Taussig related that Rav Meir Shapiro told his student, Rabbi Shmuel Wosner, that he had merited two children — Yeshivas Chachmei Lublin and Daf Yomi. “The pasuk in Vayigash says ‘shnayim yaldah li ishti,’” said Rabbi Taussig. “Shnayim is roshei teivos of Nishmas Meir Yehuda Shapiro and yaldah is roshei teivos of Daf Hayomi and Yeshiva Lublin.” The siyum also featured an unprecedented musical production that included both the Shira Choir and the Malchus Choir from Eretz Yisroel, with approximately 50 musicians from both Hamenagnim and the Freilach Band performing together, according to Yeshiva World News. An emotional and riveting thirty-minute presentation titled Hinei Yomim Ba’im told the story of a father and son who were at the 1923 Knessiah Gedolah in Vienna where Rabbi Meir Shapiro first proposed the idea of Daf Yomi, and it also chronicled both world wars, demonstrating how limud haTorah sustained Klal Yisroel even during its darkest moments. Dirshu has already held siyumim in England, France, South Africa and Yerushalayim, with the final siyumim to be held in Pinsk and Radin in March.

Citing Security Concerns, New Yorkers Banned From Federal Trusted Traveler Programs Get ready to spend more time at the airport on the return trip home from Eretz Yisroel and other international locations after a move by the Department of Homeland Security that will keep New Yorkers out of nationwide trusted traveler programs intended to speed up border crossings. ABC News reported that the state was informed by DHS last week that it would be accepting no new applications or renewals from New Yorkers for programs such as Global Entry, NEXUS, SENTRI and FAST that expedite the process of re-entering the country. The surprise announcement came a day after President Donald Trump spoke about illegal immigration in his State of the Union address, with DHS pointing the finger of blame at the state’s recently enacted Green Light Law. This law cleared the way for illegal immigrants to apply for driver’s licenses while simultaneously blocking both Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Protection from accessing Department of Motor Vehicles records. In a three-page letter to state officials, DHS said that it was barring New Yorkers from enrolling in the programs, because federal agencies would be unable to protect citizens from “menacing threats to national security” because of its inability to access the DMV’s database under the Green Light Law. Effective immediately, state residents will no longer be able to enroll or re-register in federal trusted traveler programs, a move that will affect 80,000 pending applications and another 150,000 New Yorkers whose memberships will be up for renewal by the end of the year. The

move also affects nearly 30,000 commercial truck drivers enrolled in a program that gives them faster access at border crossings between the United States and Canada. It will also create delays and higher costs for anyone selling used cars titled in New York to out-of-state buyers. The DHS action does not currently affect the popular TSA PreCheck program, although it did not rule our further limitations in the future. “These are all unfortunate consequences of New York’s Green Light Law,” said DHS Acting Deputy of Security Ken Cuccinelli. “Obviously, we would urge New York to undo that law and restore some sanity to its own attempts to help preserve public safety.” Governor Andrew Cuomo was quick to lash out at the president for the ban, saying it was politically motivated and an abuse of power, noting that thirteen other states and Washington, D.C., have Green Light laws of their own but have yet to see similar restrictions. New York State Attorney General Letitia James said that she planned to file suit against the Trump administration for unfairly targeting Empire State residents. “This new policy will negatively impact travelers, workers, commerce and our economy, so we will fight the president’s shortsighted crusade against his former home,” said James.

Weeks After Being Released Under Bail Reform, Suspected Yeshivah Burglar Arrested Again It was the second arrest in as many months for an unnamed man accused of a string of yeshivah burglaries in the Monsey area and in Brooklyn. The Ramapo Police Department reported that the 34-year-old was arrested last Friday morning in the early morning hours after forcing his way into a yeshivah in New Hempstead and setting off the security system. Police who responded to the scene were able to confirm that the intruder was the same individual being sought in numerous yeshivah burglaries in the area. After setting up police perimeter around the yeshivah, officers conducted a foot search and found the suspect in a heavily wooded area. The same man had been previously arrested on January 10 for burglarizing other yeshivos and was released the same day on his own recognizance under New York’s new bail reform laws. Police said that the suspect robbed another yeshivah on the same day and continued targeting yeshivos in Ramapo, Clarkstown and Brooklyn over the next month until his capture last Friday. The suspect is described only as a homeless man. He was charged with multiple counts of burglary, grand larceny, petit larceny, criminal mischief and criminal possession of burglar’s tools and was arraigned in Ramapo Justice Court, where bail was set at $70,000. He is also wanted on several outstanding charges, arrests and bench warrants in other jurisdictions.

The Missing Ingredient To Achieving Your Health Goals 92% of people that set goals don’t achieve them. There are many formulas on how to create goals. The most powerful variable in the goal-setting equation, the piece which I believe 92% of us are missing, is the meaning we put behind our goals. To help you understand this let us use the example of health and fitness— something that I deal with every single day. Before I begin working with any client that number one question I ask them is why do you want to exercise. More often than not I get a confusing look with an answer saying “What do you mean? I want to exercise because I need to be healthy”. The next question I ask is “Why do you want to be healthy?” At this point I am sure people think there is something wrong with me. The response I normally get back is, “What do you mean why do I want to be healthy? I want to be healthy because I want to be healthy”.

But when you understand what health is all about, for me it is all about living the best life you can so you can perform at your best every single day, health is not about getting by it is about performing at your best. When the going gets tough its immensely will be a lot easier to get motivated to push through when I remind myself of my true reasoning to perform at your best. Here is the thing I just gave you my meaning to what I believe health to be. What is meaningful to me may not be meaningful to you. You have to take the time to ask these difficult questions to find what is important about being healthy to you. No one can give it to you. Only you can create the meaning that is right for you. If you truly do want to succeed with your health, become fitter, take a moment to think why is this important. Then remind yourself every single day. If you would like to have a systemized approach to healthy living and have the support team in your corner reach out to me on (845) 671 - 9945

Being healthy within itself is a very good idea and I agree we need to be healthy. Here is the thing, the road to health is paved with many hills and mountains. When the going gets tough what is going to motivate you to push through?

Recap: Packing is well underway in the Potolsky home, but Elisheva is worried about people being jealous and causing ayin hara. Eliyahu tells her that using some of their money to write a Sefer Torah can ensure that they’ll be okay. Back in Bratislava, in 1948, Gustav is slowly recovering in the hospital, with Ulush and Janek visiting him regularly. Then, when the police pay a visit to the pediatric ward, Janek realizes that it’s dangerous for them to be seen with Gustav, and he begins to focus on getting out of the country. “Excuse me, did the van from Atah Imadi pass already?” The woman who turned to Elisheva was elderly and seemed to be somewhat blinded by the bright sunlight. “I think it should be here any —” Elisheva, shading her eyes with her hand, didn’t have a chance to finish her sentence before the white van drove around the bend in the road. She climbed aboard and was on her way to spend another day at Tel Hashomer Hospital, in hopes that everything would go smoothly and that her father would feel well enough to be released in a day or two. This was life — strong, turbulent, often drowning out all plans. She had planned and thought and run around and hoped that by this week, they’d finish all the packing and would finally be able to move. But the infection that her father had come down with had upended all of her organized plans. For the past three days, since Rosh Chodesh Nissan, she and Eliyahu had been taking shifts at the hospital, in Internal Medicine C, while the children were doing the best they could on the home front. Just then her cell phone rang, and an unfamiliar number appeared on the screen. “Ms. Elisheva?” “Yes?” Her voice was laced with puzzlement.

“This is Mahmoud from Internal Medicine C.” Her heart skipped a beat. “The hospital?” “Yes. Your father wants to know when you are coming. He’s alone right now.” “I’m on my way,” she replied to the Arab nurse. “Is everything alright?” “Everything is fine. He just didn’t want to eat anything and is waiting for your food.” “Yes, yes, I’ll be there very soon.” Eliyahu, who had been with her father all night, had probably gone down to daven Shacharis, knowing that she was supposed to be arriving just about then. She leaned on the window to her right, staring at the passing scenery. Baruch Hashem, the staff at the old age home had discovered her father’s very high fever in time, and had summoned them. They’d rushed him to the emergency room, where the doctor told them they were fortunate that he had been brought in early enough. Her father had immediately been started on intravenous antibiotics, and the infection seemed to be healing nicely. “General rehabilitation; geriatric rehabilitation,” the volunteer driver announced. “Anyone getting off?” “I am.” A young bachur stood up. Something about his profile reminded Elisheva of her Binyamin.

She was fully aware that something had been bothering Binyamin lately, and she wasn’t buying any of his stories. For two months already something had been off, and she had even wanted to send him for blood work at the beginning of bein hazmanim, but then she’d gotten completely involved with her father. Whatever the case, Binyamin had tried to assuage her fears. “I’m fine, Mommy,” he declared over and over. “I feel good, baruch Hashem. Nothing hurts, and

Elisheva had begun to question Binyamin — had he borrowed money from someone? What exactly was he referring to? I’m not weak. Pale? Maybe it’s still from the flu I had.” That was possible. But something was bothering him, and it was niggling at her as well. He had always been such a mommy’s boy. Why wasn’t he sharing this with her? What was he afraid of? Only once, on Motzei Purim, had he said something to her. He’d been helping her put away all the stuff they had gotten for mishloach manos, and he’d blurted out a strange sentence. “Mommy,” he’d said, his voice somewhat hoarse from having drunk a bit too much, “if I were to tell you now that I owe someone quite a sum of money, would that be terrible? I mean, because now you’ll have some kind of income from renting out our apartment, right?” She had begun to question him — had he borrowed money


from someone? What exactly was he referring to? — but he’d quickly assured her that of course not; he’d never taken a penny from anyone for anything. It sounded true, and he hadn’t said another word on the subject since then. Still, the strange question had dogged Elisheva the entire next day. “Main hospital building, cardiology and emergency room; last stop,” the driver said. She collected her thoughts and her bags and got off the van. As she walked down the corridor, her phone rang again. She saw Mahmoud’s number pop up again. “Hello?” she said, a bit impatiently. “Ms. Elisheva?” “Yes.” “Are you coming? The head nurse wants to talk to you about discharge.” Elisheva pressed the elevator call button. “I’m already here.” A few minutes later, Elisheva was already standing next to her father’s bed. “You’re going to be released, Tatty, b’ezras Hashem. Today or tomorrow. You’ll come to us then, won’t you?” “No,” he said weakly. He’d always spoken quietly, but since the stroke two years ago, his voice had become even more feeble, especially when he was lying down. “But why?” She sat down on the armchair in which Eliyahu had slept the night before. It was a bit low, but this way she was able to see her father’s face. “It’s not our tiny apartment where everyone can hear everyone else. It’s a huge apartment, and if you get the room farthest from the center, you’ll see that it doesn’t matter that it’s not a separate suite yet. It will be calm and quiet for you there!” “No,” he repeated in a whisper. “But why would you want to go back to the nursing home?” She just couldn’t understand her father. “I’m used to it there.” “I promise you, Tatty, that it won’t be hard for you to get used to our house. And even if maybe, maybe, maybe you don’t get used to it — you can always go back to the nursing home then!” “No.” She sighed. “Mr. Yisroel Benzion, here is your medicine.” The nurse who entered helped her father sit up, sip a bit of water, and swallow the pill. Elisheva didn’t recognize the pill. “What is this?” she asked. “It’s not his blood pressure medication, is it?” “No, it’s the antibiotics. Since last night, he’s not getting it through IV; he’s getting it orally.”

Her father lay back down. “Nu, Tatty, if we don’t even have to deal with an IV after you are released, then why do you want to go to the nursing home? I want you near me, especially since you’re so weak and so…” She stopped, already hearing her father’s “no.” But this time he surprised her when he said, a bit more loudly, “Enough.” “Fine,” she said resignedly. Eliyahu arrived. “Good morning!” He smiled at her. “So, what’s new?” “They want to release my father today or tomorrow.” “Baruch Hashem. Yes, the doctor on the night shift told me that too.” “I wanted him to come home to us. You know, some of the furniture is already in the new house, and we can easily prepare a room for him. Someone could sleep with him for the first two days until we all get there with the rest of the stuff.” “But your father doesn’t want to.” “How do you know?” “Late last night they called me from the nursing home to see how he’s doing.” Eliyahu put his tallis bag on the night table. “Your father made it clear to me, three times, that I should tell them that he’ll be going back there. I tried to say that we don’t know for sure, and that we’ll see where he’s going to go, but —” he smiled at his father-in-law “— my shver knows better than I do where he is headed.” The older man nodded with satisfaction. “All right, so I’ll be going home now,” Eliyahu said. “There’s a van at 10:30. I already put on Tatty’s tefillin, and he davened. Is there something that you want done now at home?” “Maybe the fridge. We need to empty and clean it, and prepare it for the move. Will you be up to it?” “Binyamin and the big girls will help me.” “Tzippy and Miri said they’ll be happy to lend a hand, too. You can call them if you need their help.” “The girls at home will help me. I think it’ll be enough.” He took his tallis bag back from the night table. “We’ll be in touch later in the day, okay?” “B’ezras Hashem. Thanks, Eliyahu.” She opened her bag. “Tatty, do you want to wash? I prepared a sandwich and an omelet. The protein is especially important for you now.”

the dogs’ owner was saying. “I can’t hear you,” the man said patiently. “Say that again, please?” There were a few moments of calming sounds, and then the barking faded somewhat. The sentences after that were very clear. Too clear. Maddeningly clear. “He’s not going to live with them?” The man uttered each word slowly, no longer sounding patient. “Are you sure?” “Yes.” A single bark accompa-

And what did the family tell you regarding the subject that is important to me? I want to hear exactly, not approximately.” “Rabbi Potolsky tried to say that perhaps the grandfather would come and live with them, and that they would see exactly what the arrangements would be, but his father-in-law kept saying something in the background, and it sounded like a firm refusal.” “Oh, he’s the one who’s refus-

ing?” “Apparently.” “Why ‘apparently,’ if you say that this is how the conversation went?” “Because I have experience with such stories. Sometimes the family doesn’t want the elderly person to live with them, but they pretend that they do. And when such a person senses that his family doesn’t really want him, he prefers to maintain his own dignity and live in the nursing home, rather than become an unwanted burden on his children. You know, like a ‘spare me

the favors, thank you very much’ kind of thing.” Again, the barking overpowered the conversation. “Sorry,” the speaker apologized. “Give me a minute to calm them down again…” “Look,” the caller said after a moment. “I want you to find this out for me. If the impression that you get is that the family is going to live in that gorgeous penthouse that they won, but they want to throw the grandfather back into the nursing home, well, then, they will only lose out from it.”

“Don’t say ‘throw’ about our nursing home. It’s a very dignified place.” “Dignified or not, it’s not your nursing home that interests me right now, you hear? I want you to get to the bottom of this.” “And if the grandfather is the one who prefers it this way?” “Then I’ll need to decide what to do.” “Fine,” the man said. Another few yips, and the conversation came to a close. To be continued...

Buttigieg Wins Iowa THE PULSE: South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg emerged the victor in the Iowa caucuses. Buttigieg garnered 26.2% of the vote and 564 delegates, while Bernie Sanders got 26.1% of the vote and 562 delegates. Former Vice President Joe Biden finished a disappointing fourth behind Elizabeth Warren, with only 15.8% of the vote and 341 delegates. THE IMPACT: Buttigieg’s strong showing has thrust him into the limelight. Recent polling out of New Hampshire has him locked in a tight race with Bernie Sanders for the lead in the Granite State. Buttigieg is seeking to portray himself as a moderate candidate to the right of more radical candidates, such as Bernie

106 / THE MONSEY VIEW / February 12, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. His strong showing is likely costing Joe Biden votes. Should Buttigieg’s surge result in a poor outcome for Biden in New Hampshire, it will likely erode Biden’s argument that he is the most electable candidate. The next primary state of South Carolina, with its large African-American population, is considered a must-win for Biden. Biden will need to make a strong stand in South Carolina to stay viable. The primary beneficiary of Biden’s poor performance is likely Michael Bloomberg. Bloomberg has stayed out of the early primary contests and is betting on big wins in the Super Tuesday primaries of March. If centrist Democrats begin to panic over Biden’s inability to win over voters, they may view Bloomberg as the most viable centrist candidate in the race, thereby creating a narrow pathway for Bloomberg to win the nomination.


THE STATE OF PLAY: Buttigieg will now begin to see a stronger focus on his policies and ideas. Buttigieg is a Harvard graduate and Rhodes Scholar. He served in the Navy and did a seven-month tour of duty in Afghanistan. Buttigieg portrays himself as a moderate, but most of his ideas are in line with his party’s liberal orthodoxy. He supports background checks on gun purchases, a carbon tax, and wants to increase taxes on the wealthiest Americans. However, he is opposed to the use of tariffs and supports boosting the defense budget. Buttigieg’s appeal to moderates is due mainly to his temperament and his military service. Buttigieg’s position on Israel is mixed. He has been critical of Israel’s plans to annex areas of the West Bank and has said that he would leverage aid to Israel to stop it from taking unilateral actions that would negatively affect the realization of a two-state solution. However, Buttigieg has vocally defended Israel’s right to defend itself and has placed the blame for the Palestinians’ predicament in Gaza on Hamas. Buttigieg also forcefully criticized Congresswoman’s Ilan Omar’s comments comparing Israel’s human rights record to Iran. Buttigieg is a strong supporter of the equality act, which is opposed by many religious groups who fear that it will erode religious liberties.

Senate Acquits President Trump THE PULSE: The Senate voted mostly along party lines

to acquit President Trump on both articles of impeachment. The lone senator to cross party lines was Mitt Romney (R-UT), who voted to convict the president on the charge of abuse of power. Romney is the first senator in American history to vote to convict a sitting president of his own party.

House by security officers. Former Ambassador Gordon Sondland was fired from his position as Ambassador to the European Union. Many have expressed concern over these actions. Lt. Col. Vindman is a recipient of the Purple Heart and served the United States of America valiantly. He was subpoenaed to testify and testified under oath to the truth as he saw it. The vindictive actions of President Trump will serve to instill fear in those who are employed by this administration. It will likely cause people who observe wrongdoing in this or any future administration to decline to report their concerns and to refuse to testify truthfully at potential hearings. According to reports, Republican Senators Susan Collins of Maine, Thom Tillis of North Carolina, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, and Martha McSally of Arizona tried to convince Trump to leave Sondland at his post, but to no avail. It is not the first time that Trump has used the powers of government to attempt to silence his critics. In August 2018, Trump revoked the security clearance of former CIA Director James Brennan because of Brennan’s vocal criticism of the Trump administration. It should be noted that the action against Brennan was unprecedented at the time. Previous administrations did not revoke the clearance of their critics. General Michael Flynn led chants of “lock her up” at Trump rallies, and yet did not have his clearance withdrawn.

Trump Approval Ratings Soar to His All-Time Best THE PULSE: The most recent Gallup poll has Trump’s approval rating at 49%, which is his all-time personal best. The poll results show the great divisions that are present in the country. Trump’s approval among Republicans is at 94%, but only 7% of Democrats approve of his performance. Among independents, his approval rating is at 42%.

THE IMPACT: President Trump was triumphant in

his post-acquittal comments. He publicly thanked the members of Congress who helped him and openly criticized those who crossed him. The fallout from the impeachment trial may be far-reaching. The trial served to energize the Republican base, and the Republican National Committee has raised substantial funds off of it. However, the acquittal has also put Republican senators, such as Susan Collins of Maine and Cory Gardner of Colorado, in unenviable positions. They are both locked in fierce reelection battles, and their opponents are seeking to use their acquittal votes against them. On the other end of the spectrum, Democratic Alabama Senator Doug Jones likely ceded any chance of reelection when he voted to convict President Trump. THE FALLOUT: Allies of President Trump fiercely attacked Senator Romney and his motives. The President reassigned Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman and his twin brother Yevgeny Vindman from their jobs at the National Security Council. Both were escorted out of the White

THE IMPACT: Trump’s improved numbers are likely

due in large part to the success of the economy. Additionally, Trump has achieved some notable successes with the passage of the USMCA and the signing of a stage-one trade deal with China. Trump has also shown that many of his decisions to buck conventional wisdom did not trigger the adverse effects that many predicted would ensue. Moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem did not result in widespread outrage in the Arab street. Killing Qasem Soleimani did not result in World War III, and placing tariffs on China did not sink America into recession. However, even at these record polling highs, approximately half the country does not approve of his job performance. This is likely due to his combative style and to the disapproval of some of his more controversial approaches to issues of national concern. Trump won the election in 2016 by narrowly winning key states. He must retain these voters to win reelection. These numbers are positive news for President Trump and will be a cause of anxiety for Democrats looking to replace him in 2020.

ASK THE THERAPIST Q: Sometimes I get so overwhelmed with my busy life that I want to cry. Everyone else seems to be functioning better than I. What’s wrong with me? A: While it is common to feel overwhelmed during the sleepdeprived years raising young children, I cannot address your specific situation without knowing more about your life. Please consider the following questions seriously: Were you raised in a critical or chaotic home?Are you realistic about your expectations of yourself? Do you know how to care for yourself? Do you have enough support? Can you organize things or are you easily distracted? Have you historically felt insecure or inadequate? These issues may contribute to anxiety in a small or large way. Sleep deprivation may magnify insecurities and irritability. Comparing yourself to others can be dangerous too. Not only do you not know another person’s inner life, but we are not created equally in regard to managing life. If feelings of emptiness and helplessness define your inner life, please seek professional help where you can learn about your feelings and figure out skills to manage life. We are all loved equally by Hashem, though we were not created with the same strengths and weaknesses. Please make reaching YOUR potential your priority by getting the help you need before you suffer needlessly. Malka Harris Susswein , LCSW YOU CAN EMAIL YOUR QUESTION TO PROJECTOHR@CMADC.COM

114 / THE MONSEY VIEW / February 12, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


Achieve the richest fudge-frosted cupcakes ever — and do so in just an hour! And the best part yet? No mixer required; both the batter and the frosting are one-bowl recipes. Top them with a colorful sprinkling of fun or with mini chocolate chips for a triple chocolate whopper! Yields 15 cupcakes

INGREDIENTS 1¼ cups flour

½ cup light brown sugar

⅔ cup unsweetened cocoa

1 egg plus 1 egg yolk, lightly beaten

1½ tsp. baking powder

⅓ cup liquid whip

½ tsp. baking soda

½ cup oil

½ tsp. salt

2 tsp. coffee granules

¾ cup sugar

¾ cup boiling water

FROSTING ½ stick margarine, melted

½ cup unsweetened cocoa

⅛ tsp. salt

¼ cup hot water

1½ cups confectioners’ sugar

1 T. corn syrup

DIRECTIONS 1.

Preheat oven to 350° and line muffin pans with baking cups.

2.

Whisk together flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl, and make a well in the center of the mixture. Add sugars, egg, egg yolk, whip and oil to flour mixture, and whisk in until just incorporated. Dissolve the coffee in the boiling water, add to batter, and whisk in until smooth. Fill each baking cup just over half full with batter.

3.

Bake cupcakes for 22 to 23 minutes. Remove from oven. Cool cupcakes for 10 minutes, then pop into the freezer for about 20 minutes to finish cooling.

4.

For the frosting, combine all ingredients in a medium bowl (I used a disposable 32-ounce container) and whisk until well combined. Whisk frosting one more minute, until smooth and glossy. Spread a spoonful of frosting over each cupcake. Decorate with your topping of choice.

5.

Store cupcakes in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer; bring to room temperature before serving.

Fluffy Vanilla Cupcakes

116 / THE MONSEY VIEW / February 12, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

Elegant

Cream-Filled Cupcakes

Topped With a Chocolate Rose

118 / THE MONSEY VIEW


These cupcakes are stunners! A fluffy vanilla cake, pastry cream filling, and beautiful chocolate ganache topping make this one spectacular cupcake that’s as delicious as it is beautiful!

CUPCAKES Use one recipe of the Fluffy Vanilla Cupcakes

CREAM FILLING 12 oz. whip 1 container ready-made vanilla custard

CHOCOLATE GANACHE TOPPING 13 oz. real chocolate chips 2 T. corn syrup (this gives the ganache a sheen) 1 cup liquid whip

DIRECTIONS 1.

Prepare one batch of Fluffy Vanilla Cupcakes.

2.

Cut out a half-inch circle from the center of each cupcake. (I used the back of a piping tip, but a corer or knife also works great.)

3.

 Prepare the cream filling: Beat the whip until stiff, and gently fold in the custard. Pour it into a piping bag or large Ziploc bag with the corner snipped off. Fill the centers of the cupcakes with cream. (You will have leftovers that you can use on any other cake or with fruit.)

4.

 Prepare the ganache: Place the chocolate chips, whip and corn syrup into a large bowl (I used a disposable 32-ounce container). Heat in the microwave, stirring frequently, until completely melted and combined. Place the chocolate ganache into the fridge, stir after a half-hour and then place back into the fridge for approximately another hour, or even a bit longer, until it feels firm enough to be piped. Pipe the ganache onto the filled cupcakes. I used the Ateco 844 tip (which is a large star tip) and started at the center, slowly moving outward around the circumference of the cupcake.

5.

Refrigerate until ready to use. You can also freeze these cupcakes and defrost overnight in the fridge.

*If the chocolate ganache becomes too firm, continue to microwave it in 5-second increments until it appears ready to be piped. If it’s too soft, refrigerate for a bit longer. *To simplify the decorating, allow the ganache to cool on your counter for just 10 to 15 minutes, and then blob a spoonful of the ganache on top of each cupcake.

Join us for a visit to Bohemia, current-day Czech Republic, as we go back in time to this hotspot for Jewish healing in years gone by. Resort towns in the area, such as Carlsbad, Marienbad, Franzensbad and Piestany were privileged to host a fair share of Yidden and gedolim during their heyday in the mid-1800s until World War II.

THE MONSEY VIEW / 125


CARLSBARD 1900

Dateline: Late 1800s–Early 1900s Welcome to Carlsbad, Czechia! Dobry’ den! Ah gutten! This is a place where Yidden of all types find themselves at home, or rather, comfortable for a well-deserved vacation. Set in a picturesque landscape, it’s a tranquil town, wellsuited for relaxation and healing. During peak season, in the summertime, Yidden fill its gas lamp–lit streets and stroll the promenades and wooded forest paths. Rich Yiddish life pulsates here! Enter one of the famous resort town’s restaurants, and you’ll be asked which stamp of kashrus suits you. After all, the availability of food matches the standards of every

126 / THE MONSEY VIEW / February 12, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

kind of Yid — for every kind of Yid can be sighted in the neighborhood these months. There is also a minyan for every sect, some imposing shuls built to serve the open Jewish community, and improvised rooms set up temporarily as batei midrash for the followers of various chassidic courts. You can find a mikvah, a beis hachaim and even Jewish hospitals — and Yiddish-language newspapers are sold at the stands. Elegant parks and comfortable lodgings make this an idyllic resort destination. But the core selling point are the bathhouses and hot mineral springs. They come here for healing and cures and to rest and relax without the day-to-day worries of life back home. From as far as Galicia and Russia, Austro-Hungary and Ger-

many, Yidden find their way to this jewel of healing in the heart of Bohemia. Bohemia stands at a juncture between Eastern and Western Europe, making it a natural choice for Yidden from both directions and bringing together varying cultures and mindsets. Young, resourceful doctors introduce innovative methods of treatment that give all the more reason for the ailing to visit this restorative destination. Guests drink the waters, bathe in the mud, and engage in the latest X-ray, light and gas therapies and treatments. The springs contain natural therapeutic and medicinal properties, and visitors emerge feeling healthier and stronger. It’s a rejuvenating place. Many of the local hospitals and

GEDOLIM WHO VISITED Resorts like Marienbad and Carlsbad were graced with the presence of the Gerrer Rebbe, zt”l, the Rebbe of Sadigur, zt”l, the Belzer Rav, zt”l, and the Satmar Rebbe, zt”l. These personalities often arrived with an entourage of followers. They walked through town in traditional attire: long suits, peyos and black hats. They certainly captured the attention of other guests, and interestingly, were rarely targeted negatively as a result.

CHASSIDIM IN MARIENBAD

P H OTO S : S T U D I O H A N S L A M PA L Z E R , R I C H A R D S VA N D R L I K , I V E LT, P I N I D U N N E R , G O O G L E

During a visit to Marienbad in 1891, Mark Twain commented on the chassidish presence in town. “Almost the only striking figure is the Polish Jew. He is very frequent. He is tall and of grave countenance and wears a coat that reaches his ankle bones, and he has a little wee curl or two in front of each ear. He has a prosperous look, and seems to be as much respected as anybody.” Many close and unlikely relationships were formed in these resort spots between gedolim from various parts of Europe who might never have come together otherwise. The connection between Reb Aharon of Belz, zt”l, and the Imrei Emes of Gur, zt”l, had roots in Marienbad. Reb Elchonon Wasserman, zt”l, looked to spend as much time as possible in the Belzer Rav’s presence when they’d meet in Marienbad, recalling the esteem in which the Chofetz Chaim held the Belzer Rav at a convention in Warsaw. Reb Yehoshua of Belz once visited Piestany, and some local misnagdim mocked him. His son, Reb Yissachar Dov, was disturbed. He asked his father how it could be that people still did not see the advantage of chassidus and were so callous as to ridicule them. Reb Yehoshua replied that his son needn’t worry. “That was before I davened ‘Atah chonen l’adam da’as’ in Shemoneh Esrei. They’ve already done teshuvah.” They were still speaking when the Yidden came to ask forgiveness. Reb Yehoshua told them to travel to Belz. Years later, when repeating the story, the Reb Yehoshua of Belz pointed out some “yoshvim” in Belz. “They are descendants of those Yidden…” he said.

healing centers are subsidized and sponsored by large Jewish communities, like Vienna, Prague and Berlin, and by private benefactors as well, making treatments at the springs available to simple workers and tradesmen, too. The influx of Yidden — men, women and children — during the summer season transforms Carlsbad into an authentic “Jewish space,” with Yidden outnumbering gentile guests. During high season, Yidden are afforded friendly, cordial treatment by native and visiting gentiles. During the off-season winters, hostility is certainly more noticeable.

A Day at the Spa Many of the gedolim and guests have come to the resort towns dotting Bohemia on doctors’ orders. The mineral spa waters are renowned for their curative properties, both for those who drink and immerse in them. But it isn’t just the water itself… The experience begins with the journey to the “bader.” The change of scenery and distance from everyday concerns are the first part of this health-promoting experience. Without the distraction of domestic affairs or business worries, guests have an opportunity to really rest. Some even consider it inappropriate to read newspapers while regaining their health! Life in the city is rigorous, and many city Yidden seek to calm their nerves with the relaxing effects of the water. Doctors recommend a ritualized, synchronized daily routine that includes scheduled meals and no strenuous activities. Between treatments, visitors are encouraged to take short excursions and stroll the promenade and woods. For the rabbanim and rebbes who come, the relaxed HOT SPRING FOUNTAIN IN CARLSBAD

pace affords them more time to learn freely, undisturbed, between treatments. It also offers them the opportunity to meet with other gedolim, who are here for remedies too. Chassidim and talmidim who join their rebbe’s retreat strain to catch a glimpse of every interaction and bend low to listen in to the conversations of these great men. Even the “simple talk” and stories they share are interesting — not to mention watching the milchamta shel Torah they engage in.

MARIENBAD, VIEW OF THE SO-CALLED JUDENGASSE

THE CHASAM SOFER IN PIESTANY In the summertime, the Chasam Sofer visited Piestany for healing purposes. He wrote many teshuvos from there. Still, the Chasam Sofer viewed his visit as yissurim and a galus from his kehillah and yeshivah, all done simply for the sake of refuah. The Chasam Sofer would use the bathhouse privately, with no one else permitted entry while he was inside. The well was enclosed by heavy iron doors that were kept open all day, while the public came and went. Once, as the Chasam Sofer went in, the heavy doors closed on their own. It was humanly impossible to open the doors alone from inside. And no one outside knew that he was stuck inside. The Chasam Sofer realized he was in great danger. He immediately began to review his maasim and suddenly remembered that about one month before, Rav David Deutsch, a distinguished rav and the author of Ohel David, had passed away, and he hadn’t eulogized him. Chazal say that one who neglects to be maspid a talmid chacham is deserving of being buried alive. The Chasam Sofer pledged that if a miracle would happen and he would survive, he would deliver a hesped on the niftar. Suddenly, the doors opened on their own and the Chasam Sofer kept his promise.

The mineral springs found in these Bohemian resort towns are natural miracles, and the healing powers that Hashem conferred upon these fountains of blessings were already recognized as far back as the Middle Ages. The valuable waters contain a variety of minerals, sulphur and hydrogen sulphide, among other properties that heal and prevent many ailments. Drinking the water, bathing in it, and applying the mud treatments cures, soothes, remedies and restores vibrancy to many who come searching for it. The healing waters can get as hot as 70 degrees Celsius (158 degrees Fahrenheit). With as many as 60 different treatments, including balneotherapy, physiotherapy, mechanotherapy and kinesiotherapy available, visitors follow individual therapy plans upon the recommendations of local doctors. Mud baths characteristically relieve pain and improve mobility. Some come for beauty treatments, too. Common conditions that benefit from the spa waters include musculoskeletal diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, arthrosis, osteoporosis and back pain. People come for rehab following accidents and surgeries and after suffering injury to the central nervous system. Issues with nervous components and diabetes have been treated here, too. Carlsbad became known as the leading spa for “sugar,” with the composition of its springs favorable for diabetes, long since labeled a “Jewish disease,” and Piestany is famously known for healing rheumatism.

Historical Development The healing springs in Bohemia are formally mentioned in writing as early as 1549, but people already took advantage of their curative powers even earlier, during the Middle Ages. The first bathhouses in Piestany were constructed in 1778. In 1813, they suffered from flooding and were eventually rebuilt in 1820. This time, they were larger and more developed, and a spacious park was added to the design. In 1830, the health spa officially opened for business and began to gather international acclaim. Royal guests such as the Austrian Emperor Charles I, German Emperor Wilhelm II and Bulgarian Tsar Ferdinand I lodged there. And still today, the region welcomes thousands of foreigners annually.

Tucson, Arizona: a land of warm desert sand, towering cacti and panoramic views. For some busy New Yorkers, the promise of sunsoaked days whispers in their ears as they rush through the blustery streets, telling them it’s time to get away, to defrost a bit. For others, it’s the hope of healing that beckons. Like many others before them, they’ll board a plane, often with children in tow, to try out the Arizona air, praying for relief for whatever ails them.

T

hese wintertime visitors are nicknamed “snowbirds” by the locals, referencing the bird-like tendency of out-of-state visitors to flee the cold weather back home and temporarily settle down where it’s warm. Luckily for heimishe snowbirds, there’s a cozy nest waiting for them in Tucson, replete with other “birds of the feather.” Welcome to Brauner’s Resort.

“It started nearly 50 years go, when the Satmar Rebbe, zt”l, came out here with a bunch of chassidim. After being here for about two weeks, the Rebbe said that it was time for him to go home, but that

140 / THE MONSEY VIEW / February 12, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

everyone else should remain. Aside from the Rebbe and his gabbai, the group stayed.” Mrs. Brauner, proprietor of Brauner’s Resort, is pleasant and forthcoming, happy to share with

me the history of the place she loves. “As the Rebbe advised, my fatherin-law stayed here, at first in a rented two-bedroom apartment, where he hosted the davening, and then in a house he bought. It was about 41 years ago that he bought our first property in Tucson, which came with two accessory houses. Since then, we’ve been building and updating. We now have six apartment buildings with about 30 apartments in total.” As for the guests who come, they hail from all over, and from all walks of frum life. “It started out with mostly elderly visitors who came for the warmer weather, but as people realized that the air quality here is so amazing, and the environment has such an impact on health, people started to come for all sorts of conditions, ranging from asthma to psoriasis to arthritis. It’s mostly a younger crowd now, with children.” Many people who have come for therapeutic purposes leave feeling so much better, causing them to spread the news far and wide. “Recently I’ve even received calls from people in Toronto and Golders Green!” Mrs. Brauner tells me. Fortunately for people who travel from afar, everything is available at the resort aside from personal effects. “We have people who come and bring nothing more than the clothes on their backs,” Mrs. Brauner says, telling me that all apartments are equipped with kosher kitchens and that the on-site grocery rivals any corner store in New York, fully stocked with all the basics, including meat and even ready, refrigerated meals. For families who come with hopes of healing, this is a tremendous boon, allowing them to focus their energies on spending time in the great outdoors, imbibing the fresh air and catching those


rays of sunshine. Even yearround local residents frequent the store during the open season for a taste of heimishe food. Nearby, there are many lovely outdoor activities for those on the go, including the possibility of hiking in the mountains or exploring the breathtaking Sabino Canyon. Another popular attraction is a beautiful zoo, and there’s plenty of shopping as well, for those in need of retail therapy. Though Tucson is technically a city, the air quality is classified as good, with low pollution and humidity. Many asthmatics find that breathing is less laborious there. As one visitor told me, “For the first time in years, I feel that I can breathe without thinking about every breath I take. It’s as if an elephant has been removed from my chest; I can get out and enjoy life!” Another visitor, a mother of a young child with asthma, told me that her pediatrician recommended a permanent move because her child can go for extended periods of time in Tucson without flaring up,unlike at home. The truth is, attempts have

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO “I can’t guarantee that everyone who comes out to Tucson will experience healing for their condition. Very many do, but some don’t,” Mrs. Brauner says. This puzzle of who is helped by what, and when, confounds so many people around the world. To that end, it’s important to recognize that though geographical and weather features of various locales can impact our bodies in significant ways, we may not always achieve the result we’re hoping for when visiting a place that is touted to be blessed with properties of healing. Sometimes we won’t know why others achieve healing while we don’t, but there are instances in which the answer to that question is hidden in the diagnosis. Getting the correct diagnosis before attempting any treatment can be paramount. For example, while Seasonal Affective Disorder (winter depression) can be alleviated by a vacation in a sunny spot or even light therapy, other mental health conditions may dangerously worsen if conventional treatments are neglected in favor of trying nature first. Likewise, certain skin conditions run the risk of actually worsening upon sun exposure, rather than being helped by it. Though true eczema and psoriasis have historically responded favorably to the sun, the current generation is full of photosensitive misdiagnosed “eczema” and “psoriasis” patients who’ve actually developed steroid damage through using these powerful medications in a wrongful manner. These patients frequently flare when exposed to the sun due to vascular sensitivities, and often feel that they are “allergic” to the sun or heat. Such patients would find themselves very uncomfortable under the Arizona sun. Any time there is a question about what type of treatment a person should undergo, it is important to have an accurate understanding of what their body is afflicted with. Once they have a correct diagnosis, appropriate treatments are easier to come by. And for many, a vacation in Tucson is exactly what the doctor ordered!

been made at establishing a yearround community, but so far, all have fallen through. As Mrs. Brauner says, “It’s not so simple. You can’t just start a community with ten families; you need much more than that. You need a school and a cheder and other things, as well.” When it comes to off-season need, however, the resort has been opened from time to time for individual families. Though the season officially begins Zos Chanukah and ends a week before Purim, there have been requests for groups to stay over Pesach or even in the middle of the summer. People who come just to vacation typically stay for shorter stints during the main season, while those who come for symptom relief for various conditions are encouraged to stay for three weeks or more, as it can take time to see change taking place. Some skin conditions, such as cases of true eczema and psoriasis, have historically been known to typically respond well to sun exposure, though it takes time for clearing to happen. But if and when that clearing comes, it can last for extended periods of time, allowing visitors to take the relief they gain back home with them. “Last year there was a baby with

142 / THE MONSEY VIEW / February 12, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

bad eczema who came out and ended up spending seven weeks here, his family staying over Purim, even after everyone else had left. By the time he went home he was clear, and he still is clear, even now.” Some forms of mild mental health conditions, too, can respond well to the sunny nature of Tucson. Winter blues and cabin fever can

relaxed,” Mrs. Brauner explains to me. “Everyone greets each other and is very polite. Even the city bus driver always has a cheery greeting for the passengers.” In a tongue-incheek manner, Mrs. Brauner tells me that it is easy to pick out who the New York drivers are on the street… In general, those who come to the resort are treated to a country-like atmosphere in the middle of winter. There is a private playground for the children, and the women often gather around for a good shmooze. Over in the beis midrash, the men have the chance to take part in a full day of learning, complete with shiurim. Brauner’s is especially honored to host the chashuveh dayan from Monroe every winter. “People who used to go to Palm Springs started frequenting our resort,” Mrs. Brauner says, “because taking out a house in Palm Springs

For families who come with hopes of healing, this is a tremendous boon, allowing them to focus their energies on spending time in the great outdoors, imbibing the fresh air and catching those rays of sunshine. be shaken off with a vacation in the spring-like weather. Even for the average, healthy person who just needs a break from the same-old, same-old, a vacation in Tucson can do wonders. One woman who goes annually tells me that she waits for her trip all year, because it gives her that rest and mental lift she needs to get through the daily grind in the following months. “The world is slower here, more

is a hassle in regard to kashering and ensuring one has enough food. Here, guests have all their heimishe needs provided for, without the hassle.” Not everyone needs a refuah, baruch Hashem, and not everyone’s a snowbird. But should any of us need what Brauner’s provides, it’s great to know that there’s a home away from home for all of us, just a flight away.

Myth #1: Steroids are evil! Steroids, also known as cortisone, are powerful hormones that can be safe when used correctly. However, they are most commonly used in a dangerous manner. This can cause rashes to worsen and a new, terrible condition to develop, called Red Skin Syndrome (RSS). Children are especially at risk.

Myth #2: Natural skin care products are safer than doctorprescribed medications. Many products marketed as “natural” contain unlabeled and very potent steroids. Many people have been harmed, thinking a product is natural when it is actually tainted with unlabeled medications.

Myth #3: But I used so little! How can my rash be steroid-induced?!

Myth #4: I haven’t used steroids in months! My rash can’t be Red Skin Syndrome!

When used incorrectly, steroids can cause damage in an extremely short period of time, especially when used on areas of thin skin, such as the face, armpits or groin. Young children have especially thin skin and can suffer damage almost immediately.

In most cases, the symptoms do not become severe soon after stopping treatment, so many people don’t link their worsening symptoms with previous steroid usage. The symptoms significantly worsen as the drug washes out of the body over the course of months. At that point, spreading of the rash is common, causing redness to invade surrounding areas. Flaking, oozing, and burning are key symptoms. Real eczema is never as severe as RSS, but because it occurs in the place of the original rash, many people think their eczema is just getting worse.

When our pediatrician assured me that my baby's dry skin just needed a dab of Vaseline, I believed him. But when baby Simi's face grew coarser and coarser, I believed my motherly instincts more. Simi was born in the winter, and by the time Pesach rolled around, her skin was so rough I didn't need a doctor to diagnose it as eczema. Thus began our journey on the tumultuous roller coaster that is eczema. I first consulted with an allergist, having been told that facial eczema is generally food-related. After testing the baby for the five basic allergens, the allergist concluded that my baby was only mildly allergic to raw egg whites. He advised me to stay off egg whites for four weeks and check for improvement. This coincided with Pesach, and I remember being hysterical about that. Well, today I've come a long way. I didn't enjoy ice cream or scrambled eggs over Pesach, but Simi's

146 / THE MONSEY VIEW / February 12, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


skin did not clear up. So the search went on. A cousin recommended a woman who was said to identify allergens more accurately. There I received my gift: a megillah of prohibited foods and the chirpy consultant's assurance that "you'll figure it out, it will get easier." No more wheat, dairy, potatoes, spices, eggs, onions, garlic and soy, to name very few. Sometimes I literally went hungry, and things did not get easier so fast. That summer, we were going to a new bungalow colony where my

husband would be a melamed. Our home for those two months was a little cabin literally in the middle of the woods, with foxes for company. The advantage at this bungalow colony was my disadvantage: We got food from the main kitchen every day. I didn't have a gas range or oven and couldn't cook on my own (though later I did get myself an electric grill). I also tried all kinds of formulas so I could bottle-feed Simi, but she absolutely refused bottles. So there I was, a hungry mother constantly holding a crying baby. But there were some pinpricks of light that made this impossible situation the slightest bit bear-

able. It was summer, my children were kept busy in day camp, and I didn't have to cook for my family. I had to protect Simi from scratching herself, so my day was a carousel of holding the baby, keeping her arms down, and wiping the blood off her face. She woke up every morning in a pool of blood — and she often slept in my bed, because I had to hold her hands down at night so she wouldn’t scratch herself in her sleep. When she moved, I woke up and grabbed her hands, and then she woke up, and we'd often be up for hours. My sisters in Eretz Yisroel knew well how my nights looked; they kept me company throughout those long hours. Simi's face made a cute baby into anything but. All you saw were two huge blue eyes popping out of a hor-

ribly raw face. Her eyelids, behind her ears, in her ears — no area was spared. Desperate that I was, I then consulted with another alternative medicine practitioner (please check with your rav about the permissibility of any such practice), who declared that 60% to 70% of the problem was the laundry detergent I used. She recommended I change to Arm & Hammer’s Free & Clear, which is free of dyes and harsh substances. And the good news: On her plan, I was allowed white wheat, butter, cherry tomatoes, and many other foods previously barred from my diet. That very week, on Rosh Chodesh Av, I sat down to a lavish feast: fresh onion rolls with butter and a big salad with cherry tomatoes. Finally! I could actually enjoy some of the world’s bounty. Not for long. Four hours later, after feeding Simi, the nightmare

bloodcurdling howls. Oh, did that salad exact a heavy price. It was all too much, too fast. I realized I shouldn't have swallowed the hypothesis whole and gone on to enjoy myself. Maybe I could have tried only one of the foods and tracked the reaction. But my other lesson was comforting, at least. I had been doing something right until now. My impossible diet was keeping the condition from reaching its very worst. All of my trouble had not been for nothing. I did switch my laundry detergent, and that Erev Tisha B'Av found me washing all the linens and towels. Simi was always everywhere, in everyone's beds and arms, so I made sure to wash everything with the new detergent. With this change, Simi's skin was no longer totally raw; obviously, it was doing her some good. There is no such a thing as a quick fix. Nevertheless, everyone around me seemed to have the answers, and I got plenty of advice and comments from random people. I've been informed by a doctor in hospital corridors (where I was visiting to treat a different child) that my child has a bad case of eczema and that I should

I shudder remembering how Simi threw herself from pain, thrashing like crazy, desperate to just get out of her skin. I couldn't even hold her; she flew out of my arms. I spent the night bawling along with Simi. She slept for a few seconds, then jerked awake with

do A, B and C. Really, now — I was very aware of my child's condition and we were past all those “remedies.” A friend who has a child with eczema said she would tie a bib on her baby with the announcement: Don't offer advice, offer help. I've been told about "amazing" and "lifechanging" treatments, which when verified, turned out quite underwhelming. My greatest fear was infection. I've heard horror stories about eczema infections that have led to long hospital stays and heavy meds. I obsessively cared for any open wound with my own go-to remedy: MR cream and powder for burns (though this should not be taken as professional medical advice). Also, since my child was a baby and we could hold her hand and prevent her from opening wounds, we had a better chance of preventing them. Baruch Hashem, Simi was not on antibiotics even once. At that point, after the change in detergent, things were slightly better, but they were still not good. My home was totally dysfunctional; there was nothing going on except holding Simi's hands down. And when things got this desperate, I found myself in a whole new place. Things previously waved away as "out of the question" suddenly became an option. We'd heard over those chaotic months that Davos, Switzerland, was a well-known destination for


eczema sufferers. I always thought, "Yeah, right." Sure, I was so going to pack myself up and leave a family of children for weeks to go gallivanting in the Swiss Alps. Well, then the time came. Things have to grow on you, I learned. Circumstances slowly shift your limits until you find yourself doing things you'd never have done before. I saw this with my three-year-old, as well, who has eczema on her palms. A mother once told me she sent her child to school in gloves, and I thought, "Never. It's not that bad, is it?" But the day has come where I'm defying my "never"; these days, I send my daughter to preschool in gloves. Now Switzerland would actually become a reality. I got busy with making passports for the entire family. The plan was that I would travel with my preschooler and baby in the beginning of Elul, and the rest of the family would join for the yamim tovim. The end of the summer found me in a whirlpool of trip arrangements, along with the exciting preparations for my youngest sister's wedding. While my siblings were busy with hairdos and gowns, I was taking down winter coats and cooking and freezing stacks of meals. Right after my sister's sheva brachos, we were off. My mother joined me for the first week (days after her daughter's sheva brachos!) to help me get settled. Chesed really makes the world go round; it's not just a cliché. My sisters made it all possible. While I was away, my children went to them after school, and they prepared meals for my husband. Before my husband flew to Switzerland to join us, they packed up spelt goodies for me, which was so thoughtful. My daughter’s preschool teacher sent us a huge package with crafts: from Play-Doh and beads, down to the feather and glue for the kapparos picture. The day we left, Simi was looking her worst. That was a good thing; I definitely didn’t have any second thoughts! After a two-hour ride from the Zurich airport to Davos, we went straight to the Cresta hotel. For most of my six-week stay, I would be in Etania, a motelstyle establishment on the Davos mountains, but for now, I enjoyed the full food-and-board services in this hotel. After Shabbos, my mother and I started exploring the four Davos mountains to figure out which ones I could brave on my own with the two little ones. Some mountains can only be accessed via chairlift or cable car, and others have trains that ride into a manmade cavity carved into the mountain. Mt. Jakobshorn turned out to be our choice. This one we rode up in a cable car. On the mountain, I could relax on a bench while my children enjoyed some kiddie toys. There was a doll house, a bike and some blocks to occupy them. Sometimes hordes of traipsing cows surprised us at the spot. After my mother left, I transferred to Etania. Etania is a six-floor building, with each floor divided

Oh, did that salad exact a heavy price. It was all too much, too fast. I realized I shouldn’t have swallowed the hypothesis whole and gone on to enjoy myself. into two. Each family is assigned their half-floor with a kitchenette, three rooms and a porch. Since Etania is quite high up on the mountain, the air right outside is also healing. At night, I would bundle up Simi and have her sleep on the porch so she'd get all the healing air she could. At Etania, kosher bread and challah are available for ordering, but if the mashgiach would forget to turn on the oven at the bakery one night, there would be no bread the next day. There is no official kosher supermarket in Davos; when local Jews shop, they carry a list of the products approved by rabbanim.

One day, I discovered a supermarket with a kosher section. I eagerly went to check it out and saw four items: grape juice, wafers, chrein and ice pops. I grabbed two $4 ice pops off the shelves for myself and my daughter, and we sat outside in the rain contentedly sucking this kosher treat! Two weeks after I arrived in Davos, the rest of the family finally joined me. The sun cooperated as well, and stunning weather welcomed my husband and starry-eyed kids. My three-year-old proudly showed them around "our" place. For my children, this was beyond anything they could dream of. Each

day, we took the cable car up the mountain and had a real-deal chol hamoed trip! On Rosh Hashanah, we enjoyed a shul on the ground floor of Etania. As a mother of little children, it was a rare treat to sit in at most of the tefillos. The crowd was completely heimish, but varied: There were chassidim of all kinds, Litvish folks from Bnei Brak, and Sefardim. After Rosh Hashanah, we took some more family trips. When my sisters asked what activities we were planning for chol hamoed, I told them that we enjoyed these trips every day! Simi's skin didn't improve immediately. For the first three weeks of our stay in Davos, there was no change. After that, her skin was not yet good, but it was not at its worst. It was just before Sukkos — when another mother looked at Simi and asked me, "You came for this?" — that I took a look at my baby and realized she was looking better! While not smooth, her face didn't look re-


pulsive anymore. Change is never quick or straightforward. Some days she did better, some days worse. When I sat in the playroom one day, an English woman sitting near me looked at my baby and said, "She's not looking good today. Were you eating apples?" I looked at her in shock. How did she know that I'd been relying on lots of apples to supplement my meager diet? "Apples are no good for her," she claimed. When Simi broke out again, my new friend said it was a grain I'd

eaten. I argued that I didn't eat any grains — until I remembered the barley in my soup. This English native was very on top of me, helping me tweak my diet. Sukkos was an experience. This is probably what it was like in the shtetl: Families celebrating yom tov together. All of the sukkahs — graciously provided by Etania's management — stood on the large lawn. One family began to sing zemiros; the next joined. One father began to tell a story; the other families were silent and listened.

We were all in it together, facing similar circumstances. It was a bit like a support group, and I appreciated the power of being "in it" together. We shared stories, experiences and ideas. The atmosphere was beautiful and supportive. And then Sukkos — and our stay in Davos — ended. As we boarded the airplane on the morning of Isru Chag, Simi's face was clear and baby-smooth. I leaned back in my seat and exhaled in relief. An hour later, her cheeks sported two bright red patches. My pulse quickened. For

Etania and the Davos Solution The healing properties of the air in Davos were discovered in the 1800s by a doctor who looked into the curious phenomenon that the people in Davos were not afflicted by tuberculosis, which raged at the time. Many ill people, including Jews, came to Davos in the hope of being cured. However, some came so sick that they unfortunately passed away there, as testified by the Jewish cemetery in that area. Davos soon became popular — and expensive. A charity committee in Zurich decided to open a facility on the Davos mountains, named Etania, to host the ill for affordable prices. This establishment ended up serving as a haven for people escaping the horrors of the Holocaust, as well, and also facilitated the healing of the many wounded, broken souls after the war. People stayed there for as long as two years until they were strong enough to venture out into the world again. The Etania lobby showcases old pictures of people sleeping on the building porches to take full advantage of the heal-

ing air of Davos. In the late 1900s, once tuberculosis thankfully faded into history, Etania became virtually empty. By the 1990s, it was a forsaken, neglected property that cost more to maintain than its services could cover, and its owners wanted to sell it. Now, however, Etania is back on the map, and many families searching for relief from allergic conditions visit each spring and fall. The air in Davos has no dust mites, very low allergen levels, little pollution and beneficial sun rays, and these factors can sometimes enable the skin to heal.

this I spent six weeks in Davos? We disembarked with a redfaced baby, a child with fever, and two vomiting kids. I thought I would lose it right there. But as we headed home, I remembered hearing that things could get worse before they got better. The first week Simi's skin was very irritable, but by three weeks after arriving home, her skin began to clear up. It was unbelievable to watch the foods I ate show up on Simi's skin! If I kept to my regimen carefully, things were good. If I cheated, I paid the price, until things improved again after about ten days. But unlike before, when my diet only curbed total disaster, after our trip it really kept her complexion clear. When we spent Shabbos at my parents' one week, I realized I’d forgotten my spelt challah. I took the risk and tasted a small piece of my mother's wheat challah at the Shabbos day meal and seudah shelishis. I waited one day, two days, and nothing happened. So I learned

that when I'm desperate, very small cheats can sometimes wiggle their way through the system! Dairy, however, is a big no-no; there are almost immediate flare-ups with the smallest nibbles. Is it a pain to keep to this prohibitive diet? Yes, especially when I'm not home, and there's absolutely nothing for me to eat. But on the whole, I’ve discovered reservoirs of strength I never knew I had, and this did become the new normal. Today, I do spend time baking, because if I

The day we left, Simi was looking her worst. That was a good thing; I definitely didn’t have any second thoughts!

crave good food, I'll do something crazy like bake some spelt kokosh cake — just for myself! People like to comfort me with claims that in this day and age you can find "everything" in spelt or egg-free varieties. I’d like to argue that point. There is very little out there that conforms to my complete diet, and whatever does — well, go splurge on a $7 spelt challah just for yourself every week. I'm grateful to Hashem that we’ve come this far and that my baby is comfortable and mostly eczema-free. I don't know what the future holds. Most Davos veterans report that relief usually lasts several months, and then it's back to the mountains again. It is encouraging to note that eczema and allergic conditions often disappear as the child matures. However, some eczema sufferers do find permanent relief after one visit to Davos — and by strictly keeping away from any triggers, if they’re lucky enough to know what they are — and I sorely hope Simi will be one of them. Please note: The protagonist of this story did not travel to Davos as a participant of any treatment program.

Let the Games Begin Are you ready? Let’s go! The tools required for this game are: a timer, a pen and a paper — and if possible, more than one player. Since we’ll be heading into the kids’ domain this week, we’re approaching it with the same excitement kids usually do at the outset of a game. Note that the duration of the “game” will vary, depending on the amount of rounds you need to go (i.e., the amount of rooms involved). So let’s keep our energy level up with fun and cooperative players. The cool thing about this game is that it can be played in a single-player version, as well. The rules will be slightly different, but the end results will be much the same — perhaps more rounds and more plays, but still a whole lot of fun! Pesach season is a great opportunity to introduce the kids to housework. Besides the extra pair of hands that’ll give you, it’s a prime opportunity to educate them on a subject that will serve them well in the future. It is up to us to show them that there is fun to be had here. If we turn it into drudgery, then

158 / THE MONSEY VIEW / February 12, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

any kid with an ounce of sense will run for the hills. So instead, let’s teach them the easy, effective and enjoyable approach. Of all the education you ensure they receive, the ability to take to their tasks with gusto and ease is likely one of the most important. So let the games begin! The “game” can be played in a variety of ways. Each “player” can choose one area that they believe they can complete in the allotted amount of time, or the tasks can be picked from an actual deck of cards. The children can “earn points” by tallying the number of tasks they’ve completed, but even if no points are awarded, this setup is a fun way to get the kids involved in housework while teaching them that this can be a great opportunity to spend time with, and do something for, other family members. The varying game options are many, but the most important tool you can employ is a happy attitude. Kids are natural mimics, and if you approach this with joy, so will they. Besides, an upbeat attitude always makes our work easier.


Sunday

Today’s task will focus on all the kids’ dressers. (The closets are being done next week.) Start by writing a list, itemizing every drawer involved — so that you will get to enjoy that fulfilling feeling of crossing your accomplishments off the list. February 16

Many of us frequently complain about the lack of closet space. Now, I’m not going to have the gumption to entirely disagree with you, since chances are that I’ve never visited your home, but may I anyhow suggest that you take a closer look at the dresser in question and note how many items aren’t being used? Now’s the time to give yourself and the kids the gift of comfort and space. Side bonus: Putting away laundry will be so much easier when the closet isn’t stuffed with unnecessary and unused items.

Monday

The official focus will be the toy box and games. If you have a designated playroom, then that is what we are focusing on today. The actual toy closet, though, will be done alongside the other closets next week. February 17

Even cleaning the toys, when approached with the right attitude, can be part of funtime: •

Have your kids wash down the big toys with damp, soapy rags. Supply them with old toothbrushes and Q-tips and let them go to town!

Smaller toys like Clics, Lego, Playstix, etc. can be zipped into a mesh bag and washed in the dishwasher, or washing machine on a gentle cycle. To drown out the inevitable banging, and to protect your machine, add washable stuffed animals to this load.

Place dolls inside a pillowcase and add them to your next towel or linen load. Wash on a regular cycle. This can do wonders for most dolls, though I’d recommend skipping the delicate ones, as they don’t fare as well in the washing machine.

Remember: Once your toys and games are cleaned, they can still be played with in a chometz-free zone. Toy rotation is a wise approach year-round. It makes daily cleanup easier, minimizes the pre-Pesach workload, and adds an element of excitement during children’s playtime. Here’s how you go about it: Once you’ve cleaned all toys, decide on which will be put out of reach and which will be played with in the current rotation. With too many choices, nothing looks appealing. Toy rotation will give the kids the opportunity to enjoy what they have, without being overwhelmed by too many options. Set up the toy rotation by dividing your toy and game collections into two or more parts and rotating the “on duty” toys every few months, or even once yearly!

PESACH CLEANING

WEEK 7

OF THE EIGHT-WEEK COUNTDOWN

Wednesday

Today we’re going to thoroughly wash down the baby’s crib. To make quick work of this task, a super-efficient approach would be to “wear” two clean cotton socks on your hands. One can be dampened with a mild detergent and the other should be dry.

This task will require a second pair of hands. Thankfully, if there are kids’ rooms to deal with, I’m suspecting that those helpful hands, baruch Hashem, exist.

If you don’t have a crib, look around the rooms and see what other tasks you can perhaps finish up, or “borrow” from another day.

Like in the master bedroom last week, strip the bed linen and wash down the bed frames prior to vacuuming and flipping the mattress.

Junior Works of Art Our desire for a spacious and clean room might seem like we’re discouraging creativity. By forcing the kids to get rid of their artistic creations (whether Clics, Playmags, drawings, or other arts and crafts), we give them the message that these objects rank lower on our list of priorities than a clean home. The simplest and most powerful way to demonstrate that you value your budding artists’ work is by taking photos of their creations and storing them in photo album “portfolios.” This way you can institute the policy of dismantling toys every evening, conveying the message that the kids’ creativity is admired, yet their room still needs to be clean.

Life at a Glance MENACHEM, age 24: juggles three jobs LEAH, age 23: runs her own business sewing custom gowns and dresses ARON, age 3.5 MIRIAM, 18 months Both kids are in daycare. In the past year, Leah has had to cut down on work because Miriam has been sick a lot. Real numbers and real facts. Identifying details have been changed to protect privacy.

Recap: Menachem and Leah explore the reasons why they chose to take responsibility for their full debt as opposed to trying to settle with the credit card companies.

Leah: When we first reviewed our budget two weeks ago, we knew we would have to cut back in some areas. Some things were no-brainers — like going through all of our subscriptions and memberships and cutting out what wasn’t a must (which ended up being all of them!), and stopping to eat out. Coach’s Take But we still need to cut some more if we are going to make this work. Menachem thinks maybe we could let our cleaning help go, but I don’t think I Good job, Leah! It’s can handle that. I’m a creative — not the world’s most organized person, and not so important to go good at cleaning — but the clutter really gets to me. I can’t think in a disorganized through all of your space.

Got questions for the coach? Email rushmorefinancial@gmail.com, and write “View Q” in the subject line.

Coach’s Take Good work! A whopping 150,000 tons of food get tossed out in households in America every single day. It’s equivalent to about one-third of daily calories Americans consume. That’s just got to change!

to try to stick to a food budget of $500 a month. My new method is this: Every Motzei Shabbos, I take inventory of what’s left in my freezer and pantry from the previous week, and I create a menu using those ingredients. This dramatically cuts down on waste for a couple of reasons: 1. I repurpose leftovers as different recipes. 2. Because I have a meal plan, I only buy what I need for those meals, instead of just getting whatever I see in the grocery. As a side bonus, I don’t find myself stuck without essential ingredients while I’m cooking, so that’s working out great! I also started to plan cheaper suppers in general. We rarely eat chicken during the week anymore, and when we do, it’s in creative recipes using the chicken I remove from the soup bones. (After I cook a big pot of chicken soup, I freeze the chicken from the bones in small containers.) There are so many things I’m learning to make from those! Shawarma, meat pizza, chicken salad, pasta with chicken and pesto, and my favorite: chicken gnocchi with sauce and scallions. It does take some time to pick the chicken off the bones, but I find it’s not all that bad, especially considering what yummy dishes they end up as!

166 / THE MONSEY VIEW / February 12, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

Coach’s Take Extreme debt needs extreme measures! If you go extreme and put all of your energy into cutting, cutting, cutting and putting every penny toward debt, you’ll get out of it quickly. And it feels good to throw all that money toward your new pet project — snowballing debt! I find that people who go slower often get burned-out before they make any real progress, so speed is crucial.


When I want to make fish for supper, I buy frozen tilapia — $4 for a bag of six pieces, as opposed to $14.99 per pound of more expensive fish. (I know it’s not as healthy as Atlantic salmon, but it won’t kill us to eat it once every week or two). We also started eating more eggs instead of dairy (it’s cheaper than cheese), and more vegetarian proteins instead of meat or dairy. (The best thing is that my kids get so excited now when I serve them chicken! Who ever would have thought?) For breakfast and lunch, I started serving sandwiches on plain bread instead of bagels. It’s delicious toasted, and so much cheaper! The kids eat oatmeal or eggs, or cereal and milk (we try to get the cheaper brands). I buy the large yogurts instead of the single-serve, and I make granola myself instead of getting the readymade ones (you can make six times the amount for the same price!). Same goes for tuna, egg salad, sushi, blintzes, chickpeas and almost everything else. Yes, it takes time — there’s a reason they charge so much! But you can really stretch a dollar far doing that. Menachem and I also take leftovers for lunch, instead of just leaving it to rot in the fridge until it’s spoiled enough to throw out. Our Shabbos food has changed a lot too. We stopped buying salmon plus gefilte fish; we just choose one each week. No use wasting half of it. Our chicken is either just plain chicken on the bone, or one of the fancy recipes I make out of the repurposed soup bones. We stopped putting

flanken in our cholent and use chicken or turkey instead. We cut our food budget down to what we consider an extreme, but after all those changes, we’re still eating surprisingly well! Here’s what a typical menu in our home looks like now: SUNDAY: Shabbos leftovers, or French toast

and fruits or veggies MONDAY: lentil soup with chickpeas (great

affordable protein!), bread and roasted zucchini TUESDAY: shawarma (made out of the chicken from the soup bones), pita, hummus and Israeli salad WEDNESDAY: rakott krumpli (a Hungarian dish made with potatoes, eggs, and cheese — very filling and super cheap, especially if I top it with only a bit of cheese) and vegetable salad THURSDAY: potato kugel, farfel, chicken soup

and chickpeas Overall, It’s been working great! So far, I’ve been spending less than $100 a week (!), plus a little bit more for last-minute Shabbos shopping. Way to go!

Meet the Coach Eli Shimon

How Do You Host? 1. HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT DROP-IN GUESTS? I have a pristine guest room all ready for whoever needs a place to stay. As long as the guest is happy to come, I’m happy to have them — but it might mean I’ll be changing linen while they’re standing in the hallway! Last-minute guests are a nightmare!

2. WHAT IS YOUR PREFERENCE IN REGARD TO GUESTS HELPING OUT? I like to give my guests the royal treatment; they aren’t allowed to lift a finger! Isn’t it more comfortable when the guests feel at home? I let them help me serve meals and clean up.

4. WHAT KIND OF FOOD AND AMENITIES DO YOU LEAVE OUT FOR GUESTS? Bottled water and cups Water and light snacks A whole welcome package including water, snacks, magazines, etc. A welcome package and various toiletries, in case they forgot something at home I tell my guests that “my house is your house” and give them full access to everything.

5. IF YOUR GUESTS WOULD LIKE TO GIFT YOU, WHAT DO YOU PREFER MOST? A fruit or chocolate platter or other nice dessert Flowers Wine A toy for the kids A serving dish or something else pretty for the home

3. WHAT DO YOU PREFER GUESTS DO WITH THEIR LINEN? Make the beds nicely and go on their merry way. I’ll wash the linen before the next guests arrive.

A handwritten note of appreciation

6. WHAT’S ONE THING YOU WISH YOUR GUESTS WOULD KNOW?

Strip the linen and leave it on the beds; it makes my life so much easier!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

However they leave the room is fine, as long as they were comfortable being here!

On Being the Guest 3. DO YOU ALWAYS BRING A GIFT WHEN YOU ARE HOSTED?

1. DO YOU FIND BEING A GUEST STRESSFUL? No. I make myself right at home and enjoy myself.

Of course! I really appreciate the work a host puts into preparing for our arrival.

It’s stressful to pack and repack, but while I’m a guest, I really enjoy myself.

If it’s family I’m staying with, and I stay there often, I’ll buy a bigger gift after coming a few times rather than a small gift each time.

Yes. Making sure my kids don’t act too wild and break something or bother anyone keeps me constantly on edge.

I’m deeply appreciative, but I can’t always bring a gift.

I’m only uncomfortable if I have to share a bathroom with the family.

Yikes! I didn’t realize gifts were expected! 2. DO YOU MIND HELPING OUT YOUR HOST? Not at all! After they worked so hard to prepare for me, I’m more than happy to lend a hand when possible!

4. WHICH TWO ITEMS DO YOU APPRECIATE THE MOST WHEN YOU’RE A GUEST? A well-stocked bathroom A Shabbos lamp

I wish I were able to help more, but I feel uncomfortable doing so in someone else’s house.

Seforim A clock

I’m always busy watching my kids! How can I possibly help out?

Spare hangers A full-length mirror

I don’t think it’s fair that I’m expected to help out after all the stress of packing and coming!

Hot springs are heated by water that rises from deep within the Earth’s crust, where temperatures soar. Some hot springs are deliciously warm, but others are too hot to safely immerse in. Hot springs that are found in volcanic areas often reach boiling point. The water from hot springs is commonly viewed as being very therapeutic due to the high mineral content frequently found in them. This is because waters that rise from inside the earth pass through multiple layers of earth and pick up minerals along the way. Despite potential health benefits, hot spring immersion does come with an element of risk. Thermophiles are heatloving organisms that thrive in hot springs. Some of them can cause serious illness or fatality. For this reason, developed hot springs usually contain treated water, ensuring a safe dip. In untreated bodies of water, it is recommended to avoid immersing one’s face or to wear nose clips, as the nasal cavity is the prime route that certain dangerous organisms enter the body. There are 1,661 listed hot springs in America.

172 / THE MONSEY VIEW / February 12, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

The hot springs at Yellowstone National Park are, for the most part, too hot to touch. In fact, warning signs have been posted and boardwalks have been built to keep tourists contained. Sometimes, though, the foolish are drawn to the unique coloring of the hot springs and get too close… In this case, it always pays to follow the rules!

Turkey has a collection of especially beautiful hot springs named Pamukkale, which translates to “Cotton Castle.” The gorgeous springs in their limestone basins feed one into another in this multitiered wonder.


By: Ruchy Reese

Chaudes-Aigues, France, lays claim to having the hottest hot springs in Europe. The hottest hot spring in their town is called the Source du Par and reaches a whopping 179 degrees, just a bit under boiling point! Bear in mind that a temperature of 150 degrees can cause burns in most people in less than two seconds.

The Waimangu Cauldron in New Zealand is also known as Frying Pan Lake in reference to its near-boiling temperatures and the steam that rises from it.

There are more than 30 natural hot springs near Chaudes-Aigues, and locals have learned how to harness their power. Using the aid of gravity and simple wood pipes, spring water is delivered to their homes, providing them with heat and hot water.

It’s not just humans who love a good soak in warm water; the Japanese macaques who live at the Jigokudani Monkey Park in Japan have decided that a warm soak makes for a great day. As the story goes, the macaques had been raiding local farms and were in danger of being eliminated by farmers. To bait them away from the farms, owners of a Japanese inn who were fond of the monkeys began placing apples in a valley where there were hot springs. When winter came, the ruse began to work, and the monkeys came to eat the apples. Some of the apples had fallen into the hot springs, though, and one young monkey fell in while trying to retrieve one. He became scared and scrambled out. But then it happened again, and he realized he’d chanced upon a good thing! Soon there were monkeys lounging out in the hot springs, munching on apples‌ Ahh, the good life! These days, tourists from around the world visit the park to peek at the soaking monkeys.
