(Re: A Tree in the Field, Issue 235) I’d like to thank you for the phenomenal article on nuts that you featured in the Tu B’Shvat issue. The pictures were positively magnificent and the information fascinating! I was so excited to share it with my husband and children, certain that they’d be equally thrilled with all the new information. I was pleasantly surprised by my husband’s reaction; he immediately called his chavrusa, and told him to check out The Monsey View! He then explained to me that they had been struggling that very day in kollel to understand a halacha that differentiates between the brown shell of a nut and the hard green outer covering. None of them had ever heard of this hard green outer covering! (And the poskim of previous generations, including R’ Akiva Eiger, zt”l, had difficulty with it too.) The entire kollel was abuzz with the fascinating and informative article the next day! Kol hakavod to you for being the conduit of knowledge for bnei Torah. M’galgelin zechus al yedei zakai...

CLEANING ALSO THE BITE-SIZED (Re: Inbox, Issue 236) I absolutely love your magazine and read it from cover to cover every week. I especially like the articles about Pesach cleaning, and I take issue with the letter-writer who wrote that you should only be looking for chometz the size of Cheerios. I’m curious: Will she only be sending two minim for one person on Purim as the halacha requires? Or will she be busy shopping/ baking/wrapping for days (or weeks) on end? So why criticize enhancements to a mitzvah as great as cleaning out your chometz? The letter-writer is right that we shouldn’t stress about extras before Pesach, but there is something special about thoroughly Pesach cleaning our homes. A friend of mine had the shock of her life when she removed a piece of shelf liner from a kid’s drawer and discovered an entire pack of spaghetti perfectly lined up. She would’ve never spotted it had she done it superficially. Wishing all Yiddishe women hatzlacha in their work! A Housewife

MAKE IT WORK (Re: Bite-Size Pesach Cleaning) I just wanted to write in and say that I think some people are missing the point of your Pesach-cleaning program, which is to inspire us to accomplish our Pesach prep in a way that allows us time to avoid lastminute panic. For myself, I’ve found that it doesn’t work for me to do the tasks in the order listed, but I am able to draw inspiration and some practical tips from the column, even if it means that I don’t enter the contest drawing. I’m okay with that. For me, having an eight-week countdown is enough motivation to keep me moving. It reminds me exactly how close to Pesach we are, and that things really are doable. I think that for those who complain that the schedule is overdone or too intense, just use your seichel to take any good advice you find and modify it for your own situation. It’ll be win-win all around! B.F.

gram! Since I’m already writing, I am reminded of a debt of gratitude that’s about a year overdue. The article about food coloring, featured in the pre-Purim issue of last year, mentioned that symptoms of food coloring allergy may include itchiness and asthma. My daughter had been diagnosed with asthma a few years back, and nobody in her medical team ever mentioned this as a possibility! Moreover, she had been complaining for a while about itchiness, and when I didn’t see a noticeable rash I didn’t know what to make of it. After reading the article, we got our answer to both! Thanks to your dedicated work, my daughter now knows to stay away from the nogoodies. The results are astounding! I have since shared this important piece of information with a family member who also has an asthmatic child, and she, too, has been seeing great improvement. So as much as your magazine enhanced our lives until then, we now literally consider it our life-saver. A simple thank-you letter could never be enough. A Grateful Reader

As we are nearing our next yom tov Purim, the happiest day of the year, I sit and think back to the past Shushan Purim. I was sitting on the couch with two bags stuffed with the junk food that my children had happily sold to me. I’m generally not one who thinks it’s fair to take away Purim nosh, or even force kids to sell it, but when seeing so much junk, I decided to casually mention that if anyone wanted to sell ten pieces of junk for $1, I’d be a willing buyer. To my surprise, some of my children actually jumped at the offer. They tried to bargain, of course, but we managed to negotiate and the deal was on! And then it occured to me how truly bizarre the situation is: We mommies want our children to feel good and part of the “in group,” so we buy all kinds of nosh for their mishloach manos at great expense. We hand out beautiful packages to one and all, and then Mommy sees the bulging bags of nosh, and pitying her children’s digestive systems, offers to buy off some. The kids go for it, the bags exchange hands — and then the nosh goes into the garbage. Purim is almost here, and all of us are running around in circles, getting ourselves into the same old game: Buy nosh, send mishloach manos, buy the nosh off from your kids and dump it. Is there a better way? I wonder. A Mommy Who Wants Happy Children

PA RS H A S M I S H PAT I M Parshas Mishpatim begins, “V’eileh hamishpatim asher tasim lifneihem — And these are the laws that you shall set before them� (Shemos 21:1). Rashi notes that the parsha begins with the letter vav, which means it is a continuation of the previous parsha. Last week’s parsha detailed Matan Torah, and this week’s parsha begins with mitzvos that Hashem is commanding Klal Yisroel. Thus, we would expect that the first mitzvah given after Matan Torah to be one that is foundational to the Torah. And what is the first mitzvah brought down in Parshas Mishpatim? “If you acquire an eved Ivri, six years he shall serve; and in the seventh he shall go out free...� (Devarim 21:2). Of all the mitzvos in the Torah, the very first one given after the parsha of Matan Torah is to free the eved Ivri. One might wonder why this mitzvah was chosen, especially in light of the fact that it only applies in Eretz Yisroel during times of Yovel, and therefore was not immediately relevant. Further reflection on this mitzvah raises more questions, such as why davka the ear was pierced, why the ear was pierced for something

Bring in your Shabbos with

TEFILLOS. 98 / THE MONSEY VIEW / February 19, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

that is actually permitted and not for doing aveiros, why the ear was pierced near the doorframe, and why a martzei’a was used to do the piercing. Rabbi Daniel Glatstein, shlit�a, brings a beautiful explanation that answers all of these questions while shedding unique light on why we were enslaved in Mitzrayim, how and why we left Mitzrayim, and the nature of our relationship with Hashem. Rabbi Glatstein cites R’ Avigdor Miller, zt�l, that sometimes in the Navi we find additional details about events described in the Chumash. The Navi Yirmiyahu relates that Hashem declared, “I made a bris with your fathers on the day that I brought them out of the land of Mitzrayim, out of the house of slavery, saying, ‘At the end of seven years you shall let go your fellow Yid who has been sold to you, and when he has served you for six years you shall let him go free...’� (Yirmiyahu 34:14). We see here that Hashem made a covenant with us that he would take us out of Mitzrayim on condition that we would free the eved Ivri. Furthermore, the Navi goes on to explain that it was the failure of people to free their servants that brought the churban Yerushalayim. So we see that the mitzvah of the eved Ivri is a yesod of the entire Torah, and the reason is because we were only freed from Mitzrayim in order to become servants to Hashem. Choosing to remain a servant to a human master, or refusing to release a servant from such servitude, defies the entire purpose not only of our being redeemed from Mitzrayim, but also from the reason we were brought to be slaves there to begin with. The

Hashem brought us to be slaves in Mitzrayim for the express purpose of learning servitude.

      Â  

      �    �� �    �   ­��    €  �‚ƒ�    „   …�  †

      


Shlah Hakadosh explains that Hashem brought us to be slaves in Mitzrayim for the express purpose of learning servitude. At the time we prepared to leave Mitzrayim, Hashem gave us two mitzvos: pesach and milah. These are the only two mitzvos asei that incur the punishment of kareis if one fails to fulfill them, chalilah. The Bnei Yissaschar explains that these mitzvos were given when we were taken out of Mitzrayim so that we would be under obligation as we left Mitzrayim, ensuring that we would know we were not being set totally free, but that our servitude was being transferred from Paroh to Hashem. Thus, the mitzvah of eved Ivri is truly foundational. Now we can answer the questions raised in the second paragraph. The Gemara (Kiddushin 22b) explains that the ear that heard Hashem say, “Ki li v’nei Yisroel avadim — For it is to me that the Bnei Yisroel are servants” (Vayikra 25:55), is to be pierced for choosing a human master instead, because it undermines the entire reason for our slavery and for our redemption, which was to become servants of Hashem. The door frame serves as a witness to the ear hearing the above as Hashem skipped over our houses during Makas Bechoros. The martzei’a that pierced the ear has a gematria of 400, which is the number of years Hashem decreed us to be in Mitzrayim. Returning to the opening pasuk of the parsha, it says that these are the laws that Hashem set “lifneichem.” The Sfas Emes explains that they were set before us because we have the power to choose whether or not to accept ol Malchus Shamayim. May we all make the right choice to accept Hashem’s Malchus over us, and, in so doing, merit the geulah sheleimah, bimheirah v’yameinu.

Although goals are essential, they can also be the very thing that makes compliance to the program that much more difficult. At the end of the day we all want to succeed. We all want to see our hard work pay off. On the days we see ourselves moving closer to our goals we feel motivated, confident. We tend to feel inspired to stick to the plan. d On the other hand the days that we don’t see any progress we have the tendency to want to give up. We are sure all this hard work is for nothing; there is something wrong with our program. If goals are essential to our success while at the same time our motivation tends to be dependent on them it is no wonder the success rate is so lunch. Now what if there was a way to get the benefits of achieving goals without having your motivation being reliant on your results. Do you think that would be more beneficial? The wonderful thing is that this is entirely possible. I want to introduce you to 2 types of goals. ou An outcome goal is a goals that you have no direct impact on. A good example could be trying to lose 20 pounds. You have no direct control if you are going to lose 20 pounds. A behavior goal is something that you have direct impact on. For example a goal to go shopping twice a week to pick up fresh produce is something that you can control.

DON’T ASK FOR PURPLE CANDY.

With 108 varieties, we’ll simply get carried away, so you’ll need to be more specific. Are you referring to the grape candy popcorn? Lavender jordan almonds, or purple rock candy sticks? Find your exact shade of the sweetest confection, and see how Purim perfection will be a peice of candy.


It All Started With a Passion As a lover of all things beautiful, Blimy Wassertheil, founder and curator of Handpicked, has always been enamored by the magic and mystery of vintage items. “As a kid, I’d spend hours looking through my grandmother’s huge collection of old buttons, beads and endless yards of lace, and I’d sift through my father’s old letters to snip off the cool stamps,” she says. One of her favorite pastimes is scouting out antique shops and admiring magnificent 19th century furniture (preferably French!), luxurious vintage tableware, and turn-of-the-century clothes. Besides being fascinated by these mysterious links to the past, Blimy is awed by the amazing detail and supreme splendor of these pieces. “You can only find contemporary artistry like that in very expensive, luxury items,” she says, “and even then, the old-world charm is not always there.” For most, living a life of luxury is not attainable, and for Blimy, doing without all that inspirational art and beauty was just an incredibly dull proposition. And she knew she wasn’t the only one who felt that way. And so, Handpicked was born. An entrancing place that’s part museum, part store, Handpicked became the enchanted nook for all art and fashion lovers. Housed in a modern-day, vintage-looking space, current luxury-label dresses, made of the highest-quality materials and boasting perfect tailoring, hang alongside gorgeous

106 / THE MONSEY VIEW / February 19, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


vintage laces and breathtaking beaded masterpieces. Plush vintage mink stoles and buttery-soft cashmeres complement modern tulles, taffetas and trimmings. Each Handpicked item is a piece of art. And most importantly? It’s at a price point that most can afford. “Because you’ll find exquisite items out there,” Blimy says, “but we need to be able to buy it and enjoy it, too!” Stepping into the store, one is automatically uplifted by its majestic and magical ambience. Mrs. Riva Gluck*, an avid admirer and frequent Handpicked visitor, says, “You feel beautiful just by walking through the door!” Many have made Handpicked their weekly outing where they enjoy browsing the latest new arrivals and admire the workmanship and brilliance. It’s a pleasure to watch people inhale with appreciation while fingering the quality fabrics and cherishing the hard-to-find elegance. The most popular sentiment shared in the store is: These are real clothes! Where can we find real clothes these days? Indeed, they are. The best moments are those of nostalgia. Those who’ve been shopping for clothes in the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s enjoy a trip down memory lane, and history literally comes alive for them in the shop! Mrs. Schapiro*, who was shopping for the wedding of her youngest daughter, was literally moved to tears when she found the exact same Escada sweater as the one she had worn to her own engagement 35 years ago! And Mrs. Eva Rosenthal* was delighted when her daughter purchased a charming Gunne Sax dress from the ‘70s. “Oh! How I remember the Gunne Sax dresses,” she exclaimed. “They were so pretty, and all the fancy girls in the class had them. But we were never able to afford them. And look, 50 years later I’m buying one for my daughter!”

Nearly 250,000 Honda Odysseys Recalled for Potential Fire Hazard A possible wiring problem that could cause fire has Honda recalling nearly a quarter million of its popular Odyssey minivans. The recall affects all 2018 and 2019 Odysseys, as well as some 2020 models. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a wire harness used by an accessory power outlet in the third row is the source of the problem. A total of 241,339 vehicles are affected by the recall, which is expected to begin on March 16. Owners will be notified of the recall by mail and will be asked to bring their vehicles to an authorized Honda dealer for the repair, which will be done at no cost. Owners can also contact Honda at 1-888-2342138 for more information about the recall.

customers for five cents each, but according to the New York Post, it could take as long as five years for manufacturers to meet the new demand for paper bags. The 30 Gristedes and D’Agostino stores in New York placed their orders for paper bags back in December, but a store spokesperson said that the chain has only gotten one case of paper bags per store so far. “Our supplier took the order, but also warned us that there is a shortage of paper bags,” said the spokesperson, who noted that the limited supply could also spark a price hike on the bags. New York is woefully unprepared for the bag ban, say experts; the legislature held its first hearing on the issue last week, nearly a year after the legislation was passed. Phil Rozenski, a spokesperson for Novolex, one of sever-

With Plastic Bag Ban Looming, Experts Predict Years-Long Paper Bag Shortage New York’s statewide ban on plastic shopping bags is due to take effect in just a few days, but those who are hoping to pay a nickel a bag for paper bags when they head to the store to buy groceries might be in for a rude awakening. A new law that goes into effect on March 1 prohibits any store that charges sales tax from providing customers with plastic shopping bags. The law is intended to decrease pollution and protect the environment, and while it does ban shopping bags, it does not disallow bags used for uncooked meats, fish and takeout items; newspapers; bulk items such as produce, grains and candy; dry cleaning bags; and restaurant takeout bags. Also exempted are trash bags, food storage bags and bags sold in bulk quantities. Stores will have the option of selling paper bags to

114 / THE MONSEY VIEW / February 19, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

al large bag manufacturers in the country, said that the relatively small supply of paper bags will pose a major problem, with New York facing a shortage of three billion bags over the next five years. “The New York law needs four or five factories that don’t exist today,” said Rozenski. As of February 22, Stop & Shop stores will be offering free reusable bags in exchange for plastic bags, reported Supermarket News, with a limit of one free bag per customer. Store representatives will also be available to answer any questions and to offer free giveaway items for those who come to trade in their bags.

“Sustainability is a priority at Stop & Shop, and we’re committed to encouraging the use of reusables and to helping our customers make the transition,” said Stop & Shop President Gordon Reid. The New York City Department of Sanitation is also doing its part to wean residents from plastic bags, reported QNS.com. Over 70,000 free reusable bags have already been distributed to city residents, with another 100,000 expected to be handed out before the ban goes into effect on March 1. “City residents use billions of single-use carryout bags every year, and they are frequently used for only a few minutes at a time,” said Sanitation Commissioner Kathryn Garcia. “Plastic bags are particularly troublesome as contaminants in our recycling, as they often clog machinery, and we’ve all seen plastic bags stuck in city trees around the city.”

A new Amazon fulfillment center, which will house large items such as patio furniture and outdoor equipment and will be Orange County’s largest building, won the approval of the Montgomery Town Board, Zoning Board of Appeals and Planning Board last week. The Times Herald-Record reported that the 1,010,880-square-foot warehouse will be located at the intersection of routes 17K and 747 in the town of Montgomery, located approximately 17 miles north of Kiryas Joel and 11 miles east of Bloomingburg. The $75.2 million project was awarded a $20.5 million tax break by the Montgomery Industrial Development Agency. Amazon has more than 75 fulfillment centers nationwide, and the Montgomery warehouse is expected to create over 800 jobs within two years of its completion and 300 construction jobs. Bill Fioravanti, director of Orange County Economic Development, said that the project could create significant employment opportunities in the town. But not everyone is ready to roll out the welcome mat for Amazon. Barbara Lerner, whose property borders part of the Amazon site, said that the fulfillment center wasn’t a done deal just yet, citing two pending lawsuits. “The judges will be the determining factor,” said Lerner.

C H A P T E R F O R T Y-T H R E E

Recap: Elisheva’s father is hospitalized due to an infection, but he insists that when he recovers, he wishes to return to the nursing home rather than move into his daughter’s new, beautiful home. Someone is angered about this, and tells Emmanuel from the nursing home to find out what is behind the elderly man’s decision. “It’s hard,” Elisheva’s father said suddenly. “What is hard, Tatty?” She bent over him. “Does something hurt you?” He shook his head from side to side. “So what is hard?” “It’s hard,” was his answer. He sighed. “The weakness?” Again, a shake of the head. “Being in the hospital?” “No.” “So what is it?” “Being alone.” “But Eliyahu was here all night, Tatty,” she said, almost pleadingly. “He just went down to shul for Shacharis. I know it’s not easy to be alone, but I really tried hard to come early…” He waved his hand weakly. “Not that?” she asked. “When I was a boy,” he said, “and I was alone…” All at once, the few photos she knew from that time flashed through her mind. Photos from her father’s childhood. Two were from Europe; the rest were already taken here in Eretz Yisroel. He gave the impression of being a calm, worry-free child, and in some of the pictures, he was also surrounded by friends.

“Did your friends have families?” She slid her finger along the metal railing of the wide bed. “Most of them probably didn’t.” “They had names…” he whispered, and closed his eyes. “They knew who they were.” “And you didn’t…” She lowered her tone automatically — either taking his cue, or because her father’s roommate was suddenly wheeled in, surrounded by relatives who were making quite a racket. She and Eliyahu had gotten to know some of the roommate’s children over the past three days, and the size of that family was evidence that even in the postwar generation, the differences continued. Her parents had only one daughter — her — and they remained a small, somewhat solitary family, with hardly any relatives except for two of her mother’s cousins. Like Elisheva’s father, none of her mother’s close relatives had survived the war, but she at least had a name, an identity and a past. She had been ten when she was sent to hide with gentile neighbors, and she took her memories with her. But Elisheva’s father had nothing. Today, though, Hashem had compen-

sated them with a large family, and her father was living to see the nachas. Perhaps he would reconsider and agree to come live with them, just so he could bask in that nachas all the time? Maybe that was the reason he had suddenly raised the topic of his past? She peeled back the foil cover of a yogurt, wondering if she should say anything more on the subject. Behind the curtain she could hear the voices of the roommate’s three children. Their tones were a bit elevated; they seemed to be disagreeing about something. Elisheva wondered what it was about this thin curtain that made people think that it was made of soundproof cement. Her phone rang. “Mommy?” two voices chorused together. They must have been arguing about who would speak, and then decided to use two handsets at the same time. For a second, she felt like putting her phone on speaker, just so there would be some noise on her side of the curtain, too. “What’s up?” she asked. “No, I can’t hear anything like this. Only one person at a time, please.” “Mommy.” It was seventeen-year-old Riki. “Don’t ask what we found under the refrigerator!” “Maybe I’d better ask what you didn’t find…” Elisheva chuckled. The bottom of her fridge was very low, and a miscellany of odd items always accumulated in the space between the floor tiles and the fridge. It was only possible to retrieve those items by moving the fridge, which happened only rarely, when she was giving the fridge a good cleaning. “Hmmm… your silver ring?” “No,” Riki said, sounding dejected for a moment. “I hope we’ll still find that.”

“B’ezras Hashem. So what did you find?” “Besides for lots of dirt and torn pieces of paper and some old kindergarten arts and crafts, there’s this silver yad, with a pointing finger. You know, the type used during krias haTorah.” “What? That sounds to me like another project someone brought home from preschool.” “Project? It’s not made of cardboard, Mommy.” “I think I once saw such a thing made out of plastic. Maybe the teacher spray-painted it silver when they were learning about a Sefer Torah?” “But it looks like real metal, Mommy,” Shuki interjected on his extension. “And it also sounds metallic when you bang it. It’s a little smaller than what we have in our shul, but I think it’s real silver. There are even black stones on it.” “Really? Strange… Who found it?” The facts here seemed fuzzier, because she got two conflicting answers at the same time. Riki said “Shloimy” at the same second that Shuki said “Bentzy.” Then an argument broke out, and a few of the other children joined in the background. “We moved the fridge together,” Riki finally said. “But we didn’t get behind it right away. First we went to get shmattes and cleaners and all the things we’d need. In the meantime, the little ones climbed in behind it to find the usual treasures, and that’s when they found it.” “What does Tatty have to say about this?” Elisheva asked as she stood up to close the crack between the curtain and the wall. Not that it would lower the arguing voices coming from the other side, but perhaps she’d get more of a sense of privacy — and she could only hope that those on the other side would feel the same way. “He just went out to buy some bulbs; he hasn’t seen it yet.” “Okay, sounds interesting,” Elisheva said. “Put it on a high shelf for now, and show it to Tatty when he gets back. No one at home knows what it is? Or how it got to us?” “No.” “Did you ask everyone?” “Except for Tatty and Esty, who is at the neighbor downstairs.” “Okay. Maybe they will know something.” Elisheva leaned back, studying her father. He had finished eating his yogurt and was now in the middle of bentching. No, she would not raise the subject again of where he should go home to. It would

probably just irritate him. Maybe he would agree to come for the first days of yom tov. In the meantime, though, she would not badger him. After all, to be honest, he would probably get more rest in the nursing home than in her house, big as it might be. But a week or two after Pesach, she would ask him again to move in with them. Permanently. * * * * *

Bratislava – 5708/1948 The nurse who entered the room found the boy standing next to the bed, holding on to it and swaying unsteadily. “You got out of bed?” she cried angrily. “Without permission?” He gazed at her, and she wondered how much he was actually seeing. “Come,” she said, in a gentler tone. “Come lie down again.” She lowered the metal bar so that he could sit, and then she turned around and looked at him. “Wait a minute. How did you get down?” He was silent. “You climbed out!” she declared. “Do you know how dangerous that is? Now get back into bed, quickly.” He didn’t move. “Quickly!” she repeated, raising her voice. “Come on!” He arched his knees and climbed onto the bed, but didn’t lie down. “Where are they?” “Who, Janek and Ulush Cohen?” “My pants.” “Your pants? Here they are. You’re wearing them.” He lowered his eyes. “No. My pants.” “A big boy acting as stubborn as a baby! You mean the clothes that you came to the hospital with?” “Yes.” “Oh, they took everything to the laundry.” “I had things there,” Gustav whispered. “In the pocket.” “I’ll find out which doctor had admitted you here, and we’ll ask them what they did with those pants. Now you are going to lie down here like a good boy, right? And don’t get off the bed without permission. It’s dangerous. Your legs are still weak.” She was about to leave the room when she heard

Again, the two Jewish men came, and he just hugged his thick pillow with dry eyes, gazing out the long, high, rectangular window in the corner of the room.

him whisper again: “And where are they?” “The pants again?” “No, Janek and Ulush.” “I don’t know. Ulush was here with you at night.” “Janek didn’t come by today.” “Right. Maybe he’ll come tomorrow.” “But the police came instead.” “And you were sleeping. How do you know?” “I know,” Gustav mumbled. Of course he knew. Janek had told him that whenever people like that came in, he should make sure to be asleep. There was no need to explain what people “like that” meant; he understood perfectly. So this morning, he had “slept,” and the police had marked down that he was there, but he didn’t know what exactly they had written. He knew that Janek’s friends had come up with a new name for him, and had handed all kinds of documents to the hospital, but he didn’t remember which name they had given him. “So today the police were here when you were sleeping, and Janek might come tomorrow when you won’t be sleeping,” the nurse repeated. “And maybe Ulush will come by at night,” he whispered hopefully. But Ulush didn’t come that night. And Janek did not come by in the morning, either. Instead, two Jewish men came, but they hardly spoke to him. They just conversed between themselves, patted him a bit, and then left. The next day again, Janek and Ulush did not come. Again, the two Jewish men came, and he just hugged his thick pillow with dry eyes, gazing out the long,


high, rectangular window in the corner of the room. What had happened to Ulush? Had she gone to Edo? But he was in Eretz Yisroel. Had she also traveled to Eretz Yisroel? Together with her new baby? And left him here alone? The next morning, the same nurse came in. She had a scary face, but Gustav knew that deep down she really had a good heart. “I found it,” she said secretively as she slipped a hand into the pocket of her white coat. “It wasn’t so easy, because they almost threw it out; they are afraid of infection. But in the end, it stayed here in a box. But —” She took out a rusty pocket knife. “This knife really has to go straight to the garbage now. It’s dangerous, especially since it’s rusty. If you cut yourself with it, you can get very sick. “Oh, and you also had a paper in your pocket. The people here on staff and the man who found you in the street tried to read what it said. They wanted to know who you are, but the water washed out the words and turned the paper into mush. So they had no choice but to throw that out.” “So the paper was thrown out?” the boy asked. “What am I standing here and telling you for the last five minutes?” the nurse snapped. “There’s no paper. Finished. It was torn. Destroyed. Thrown out.” “But maybe I remember what it said,” he whispered hoarsely. She was already gone. “Yosef Ludmir, from Petrozhelka 10…” He gazed out the window. He could not remember the names and addresses of Edo’s uncles in Eretz Yisroel. He had never been able to pronounce the strange words. He hoped that Edo would find them anyway. Or that they would find him. To be continued...

Bernie Narrowly Wins New Hampshire Democratic Primary THE PULSE: In a close race, Bernie Sanders won the

Granite State Democratic primary by capturing 25.7% of the vote. Pete Buttigieg performed solidly and came in second, with 24.4% of the vote. Amy Klobuchar surprised many pundits with her strong showing and came in third, with 19.8% of the vote. Both Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden disappointed. Warren finished fourth, with 9.2% of the vote, and Biden finished fifth, with 8.4% of the vote. THE IMPACT: Since 1972, only candidates who have finished first or second in either Iowa or New Hampshire have gone on to win their party's nomination. Bernie Sanders

132 / THE MONSEY VIEW / February 19, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

and Pete Buttigieg have now achieved front-runner status. However, historical precedent may not be a reliable guide for the chaotic political atmosphere of today. Nonetheless, Joe Biden, who based his pitch to voters on his electability, is clearly in trouble. He will need a big win in either Nevada or South Carolina to stay viable. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said that despite Biden's poor performance to date, she is not counting Biden out. Much of the Democratic establishment is hoping that he can turn things around. Elizabeth Warren's poor performance also casts serious doubt on the future of her campaign. Warren, a senator from Massachusetts, was expected to perform well in the neighboring New England state. However, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders was able to parlay his geographic ties to the region for his benefit while Warren was not. THE STATE OF PLAY: The Democratic primary calcu-


lus has changed significantly. Bernie Sanders appears to be the candidate that progressives have coalesced around. Should Warren continue to falter, he will be the only viable progressive candidate. However, the centrist Democratic vote continues to be split amongst Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg and a surging Amy Klobuchar. Additionally, once the Super Tuesday contests begin, Mike Bloomberg will also be playing for the same constituency. As long as each of the centrist candidates believes that they have the best chance to win the centrist votes, they will likely stay in the race. The longer that they all remain in the race, the longer the centrist vote will remain split. The splintering of the mainstream vote may give Bernie Sanders the opening that he needs for the pathway to the nomination. Most recent polling shows a sharp increase in support for Sanders in Nevada and South Carolina.

Andrew Yang, Deval Patrick and Michael Bennett Exit Democratic Primary Race

Hampshire and won it decisively. New Hampshire was the first state that Donald Trump won in 2016, when he captured 33% of the vote. In a pre-election rally in Manchester, New Hampshire, Trump continued to peddle the unsubstantiated and discredited claim that the only reason that he lost the 2016 general election vote in New Hampshire to Hillary Clinton is because the Democrats bussed in voters from neighboring Massachusetts. To date, there is no evidence to back up this claim. Despite the president’s strong showing, Bill Weld still managed to draw close to 14,000 votes. Being that Bill Weld has absolutely no pathway to the nomination, these votes were likely cast primarily as a form of protest. New Hampshire is a partially open primary state, and undeclared voters can vote in any party primary that they choose. It is possible that Weld drew support from Democratic voters, but it is also likely that disenchanted Republicans decided to cast their vote in the Democratic primary to throw their support behind more moderate candidates like Amy Klobuchar. Trump still polls overwhelming support amongst the Republican base, but even a loss of a small number of voters can prove problematic. Former Trump adviser Steve Bannon said in a statement that if Trump loses just 3% of traditional Republican voters, it will be hard for him to win re-election.

THE PULSE: The Democratic field of candidates con-

tinues to narrow. Entrepreneur Andrew Yang, Colorado Senator Michael Bennett, and former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick all announced that they were quitting the race for the Democratic nomination and ending their campaigns.

Reports: Bloomberg Considering Hillary as Running Mate

THE IMPACT: All of these candidates failed to gain traction in either Iowa or New Hampshire. Governor Patrick was a late entry into the race, and his message never caught on. Senator Bennet's message of pragmatism and practical bipartisanship did not resonate with voters in the current hyper-partisan political climate. Andrew Yang drew the most national attention, as he performed well in his debate appearances. He garnered a dedicated cadre of "Yang Gang" followers. However, Yang had no path going forward. Announcing his withdrawal from the race he said, "I am the math guy, and it is clear tonight from the numbers that we are not going to win this race." The winnowing down of the race will serve to help settle the field of likely nominees and limit the choices of voters to the most viable candidates.

THE PULSE: News aggregator Matt Drudge claimed

President Trump Decisively Wins New Hampshire Republican Primary THE PULSE: President Trump cruised to victory in New Hampshire by winning 85.6% of the vote. Former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld came in second, with 9.1% of the vote. Other candidates won a combined total of approximately 5% of the vote. THE IMPACT: President Trump campaigned in New

that sources close to the Bloomberg campaign informed him that Michael Bloomberg is seriously considering Hillary Clinton as his vice presidential running mate. According to the report, internal Bloomberg polling showed that having a Bloomberg-Clinton combination would prove to be a formidable force. The Bloomberg campaign did not deny the report outright and instead put out a statement saying that "we are focused on the primary and the debate, not VP speculation." The report was not confirmed by any other news sources. THE IMPACT: Naming Hillary as his running mate

can likely provide an initial boost to the Bloomberg campaign. Clinton has countless party connections and a strong base of supporters among the Democratic base. Having Clinton on board can also bolster Bloomberg's standing among specific segments of Democratic voters, especially those who accuse him of attempting to buy the nomination. Clinton would also get another crack at political success and possible redemption for her disastrous 2016 campaign. However, such a move is also fraught with risk. Hillary Clinton is a lightning rod for the political right. President Trump was highly successful in ginning up opposition to Clinton's dubious business practices and alleged political malfeasance. Republicans would love to relitigate Clinton's email and server scandal. Clinton's impact on the ticket can easily be more of an unwanted distraction than a positive boon.

Babka Goes Elegant Recipes and photography by: Miriam Pessy Wercberger

138 / THE MONSEY VIEW / February 19, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

Homemade babka is the gift that keeps on giving; it turns house into home, homemaker into balabusta. Have a freezer stocked with babka, and you are armed for any eventuality. Ever since my neighbor Mrs. Jacob shared her famous recipe with me, my freezer is seldom devoid of a batch of babka, kokosh cake or rugelach. For this Purim I decided to share the love so you can stock your freezers with delectable treats for mishloach manos, the Purim seudah, and ah gantz yahr! Simchas Purim!


DOUGH 5 lb. challah flour

2 cups apple or orange juice

1 lb. margarine (at room temperature)

1½ cups oil

1½ cups sugar

5 eggs (at room temperature)

3 oz. fresh yeast, diluted in:

Dash of salt

2 cups seltzer (at room temperature)

FILLING 4 lb. sugar

1 heaping tsp. cinnamon

4 cups cocoa

1 cup oil

1 cup flour

2 egg whites

3 heaping T. vanilla sugar

1 tsp. salt

1 heaping T. coffee granules (no need to dissolve)

STREUSEL TOPPING (OPTIONAL) 2 sticks cold margarine

1 tsp. cinnamon

2¼ cups flour

¼ tsp. salt

1 cup brown sugar

DIRECTIONS 1.

Preheat oven to 350°. Add 6 cups of the flour to the mixer. Add remaining ingredients, mix well, and then add remaining flour. Mix until a dough forms. Cover and allow to rise for 1 hour.

2.

Once dough has risen (and challah has been taken), divide dough evenly into eight parts. I find a food scale very helpful for this step.

3.

Mix all filling ingredients together in a large bowl. Divide filling evenly among eight containers.

4.

Mix all streusel ingredients by hand to form coarse crumbs (optional).

5.

On a lightly floured surface, roll one part of dough into a large, thin rectangle. Brush dough with some oil, then spread with one part of the filling. Roll tightly, jellyroll-style, into a long log. To create mini babkas, cut the roll in half widthwise. Take one half, fold it in half, and twist to create a babka. Place in a mini loaf pan. To create buns, cut the rolled-up log into 2-inch buns, and place them into cupcake holders.

6.

Cover and allow to rise for 1 hour. Brush with beaten egg and top with crumbs.

7.

Bake babka in preheated oven for about 45 minutes. Bake buns for approximately 40 minutes.

At

every aufruf, young Moishe Engel would scamper around with the other boys collecting the loot — the little baggies of goodies tossed at the chasan as he’s called up to the Torah. The treasures within typically included some candies along with the traditional rozhinkes mit mandlen, raisins and almonds. While his friends were ready to toss aside the nuts and dried fruit in favor of the more “valuable” sweets, by the age of eight, Moishe would barter his candies for his friends’ small boxes of Sun-Maid raisins. The other young boys might not have appreciated the value of those dried grapes, but Moishe knew that with a little effort and some tender care, he could transform the fruits into something precious.

THE MONSEY VIEW / 151


With his mother’s encouragement and support, the young boy pored over relevant books, and by ten years of age, he was laboriously working with grapes, as well, provided to him by his uncle, a local green grocer. And a few years later, at his own bar mitzvah, young Moishe Engel bentched on the very first wine he had created out of those cherished packs of raisins. “It tasted awful!” he now laughs. But the passion awoken couldn’t be stilled.

The Art of Fine Wine “This is a very delicate, neshamah kind of work,” Mr. Engel tells me. “It’s an art that requires an element of refinement; you can’t be forceful or messy. I believe it to be a very healthy and beautiful outlet. And as a bonus, this one has a spiritual element to it, a refined elevation.” With Purim around the corner, and the heavy emphasis on wine consumption, Mr. Engel believes that this message cannot be understated. Wine is a special, chashuve drink, and when being part of its creation, one instantly recognizes it. In Yiddishkeit, Reb Moishe likes to point out, no other juice is as exalted. Whereas other juiced fruits and vegetables, even when fermented, are downgraded to a bracha of shehakol, grapes are the only fruits that are upgraded to hagafen. “Up until now, it was a mere grape, and now it has been transformed into something that can be used on the mizbe’ach in the Beis Hamikdash, for nisuch hayayin!”

The Process Mr. Engel is passionate about the entire winemaking process. The 21-day process starts with a small machine that cuts a little slit in the grapes and then destems them. The stems need to be removed so that they don’t add an unwelcome bitter taste.

152 / THE MONSEY VIEW

“In winemaking, like in life, every step matters. If there are rotten grapes or a little bacteria, the entire barrel will be ruined, and all the work done would retroactively become worthless.” The machine then proceeds to crush the grapes lightly before it is transferred to an oversized bowl (which can hold up 30 gallons!). For approximately three weeks, the grapes are left to ferment. The exact time frame depends on temperature, the type of grapes used, and just how sweet one wants the wine. Every fruit has sugar, and when fermented, the


sugar turns into alcohol. For less sweet and more alcoholic wine, it is necessary to allow the grapes to ferment fully. For a sweeter wine, the process needs to be arrested earlier. In commercial winemaking, chemicals are typically used to speed up the fermenting. (Conversely, sulfates are also added to prevent the alcohol content from going up.) “The issue with using chemicals for fermenting is that while you get both the sugar and the alcohol, you’re not obtaining the ‘full body’ of the grape. A full-bodied wine is one that is fermented for longer, so that all flavors and nutrients are extracted, even from the skin.”

The Grapes Mr. Engel is quite fastidious when it comes to his grapes. “Before I buy a batch of grapes, I test it to know how much sugar there is so that I know how long it needs to ferment. I also carefully watch as the levels of alcohol and sugar change. Every grape is different.” He draws a parallel here, saying that it is important to remember that there are many types of people, as there are grapes, and that each can be transformed into something beautiful. And each is special in their own right. This year, Reb Moishe is particularly proud of a great Italian grape he obtained in Texas from a large, familyrun vineyard. What’s so impressive about this particular grape is its deep, rich flavor, with an almondy-fruity taste. The wine promises to be sublime!

February 19, 2020 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 153 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


All We Need Is… Time A Proud Family Legacy Winemaking has been a proud family legacy for generations. Reb Moishe’s maternal grandfather, Reb Shia Klein, a”h, arrived in London from Hungary in ‘56, with his wife and three young daughters in tow. He immediately set about creating his own Kiddush wine, as he had done back inderheim. His wine was soon famous among the local frum Yidden, and two of his chashuve customers would go on to become big rabbonim: the Kalever Rebbe from Williamsburg, Reb Moshe Taub, shlit”a, and the Toldos Aharon Rebbe, shlit”a, from Yerushalayim. The high esteem in which Reb Shia was held was well earned. Faithful and firm in his convictions, he never compromised on any element of Yiddishkeit, especially kashrus, and was reluctant to simply accept the status quo. At that time, when London Yidden didn’t have access to cholov Yisroel butter, it had been acceptable, with rabbinic approval, to purchase the local butter. Reb Shia, though, wouldn’t be meikel on matters of halacha. He would repeatedly travel to Holland with his young daughters, where the family would churn their own butter and bring back the self-labeled containers to London. And so Reb Shia was known for his butter and wine, but churning butter was never a business. Like all else in his life, when it came to kashrus, it was merely a matter of principle. “That desire to do things our own way, the right way, runs in our blood,” Reb Moishe says.

154 / THE MONSEY VIEW / February 19, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

Once the grapes have finished fermenting, it’s time to press them. “I have a press that manually extracts the juice from the pulp,” Mr. Engel explains. “We then put the juice into airtight barrels, both wooden and glass.” Among the factors that are pertinent for optimal wine production, beyond temperature and even the necessity of a clean, odorless, environment, are the keilim used. They need to be sterilized so there are no detrimental influences. “Even with the best grapes, if the environment or other exposures are negative, the final product will definitely suffer.” And that environment especially matters when barrelling. Whereas wood adds to the flavor, glass has no impact at all. Some prefer glass, because it leaves less up to chance. That’s also why commercial vats are typically stainless steel, which, like glass, have no real influence on the taste. “When you put the juice into the barrel, there’s still some bubbling going on, because it’s still fermenting a bit, and this fermentation generates air bubbles. An airlock seal is therefore essential — it allows air to escape the bottle, but without allowing the air into the wine.”

While We Wait… Maturity and further developments happen far from prying eyes. According to halacha, the wine is techni-


February 19, 2020 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 155 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


cally ready for Kiddush after four months — and it’s definitely drinkable, but for the ultimate experience, it is ideal to wait two years for the wine to reach its prime. Over the ensuing months, the wine is raked. Because the sediments at the bottom can give the wine a bitter taste, there is great care in removing it from the wine with a pressure method: A pipe is put into the higher barrel, and the wine then flows into the lower barrel — all without disturbing the settled sediment at the bottom. At this point, the process of creating the wine is more or less complete — other than the waiting, of course. But there is

To Live and Learn For Mr. Engel, a successful insurance broker, wine selling is less of a business and more of a meaningful pastime. He does sell some of his superior wine to cover the expenses of this “fun hobby,” and those who’ve been lucky enough to taste it will vouch for its perfection. But his desire isn’t so much to profit off this venture as much as sharing his passion with those who can appreciate it. As he reverently explains winemaking to the many who are keen to learn about the process, he particularly focuses on our capacity to transform the mundane into something elevated. “I obviously enjoy the process myself, but there is such fulfillment in allowing others in on the awesomeness of the transformation. When I decided to start teaching the winemaking process, I immediately thought of how this will be rather fascinating for bachurim.” In the bein hazmanim season, he works with teenagers. “I find that for many of them, it provides something positive to look forward to, something to focus on. But even more than that, there’s so much they can learn from the metamorphosis. About their potential and capacity to change into something more.” In his work with bachurim, he draws parallels between the maturity of the grapes and that of human growth. He explains how every type of grape will yield different results. And he stresses that even if a boy has to deal with a rosh yeshivah who is not happy with him, or even if he feels like he will never measure up with an older or younger brother, it is paramount that the child realizes that he might not be like the other grapes — but he doesn’t need to! He can be wonderful in his own right. “Just like grapes can be transformed into wine,” he stresses, “every person can be elevated and transformed to serve Hashem. And once that happens — you become a different bracha. Something else entirely!

156 / THE MONSEY VIEW / February 19, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


one further step involving the pulp, which can be utilized to create stiffer drinks. “Once I separate the juice from the pulp, I ensure that nothing goes to waste by adding sugar to the remaining pulp and re-fermenting and distilling it three times. This extracts a purer, higher-quality alcohol, creating a cognac of 140 proof. “This pulp-created 140-proof spirit can then be added to the fermentation of any other fruit such as cherries, making for a really good cherry brandy or kirsch.”

Kindred Spirits “My kids, ages eleven, eight and six, all enjoy being part of the process! It has become a family project,” their father proudly shares. “On the days that the bucket still holds the beginnings of the wine, they’re very involved. When the pulp swims up, it needs to be pushed down with a special tool. “Each child has their own batch

of grapes that they monitor throughout the process. They take the responsibility seriously! They run downstairs first thing in the morning, before school, before Shabbos and immediately after Shabbos. It’s a fun, pleasant and healthy family activity! The children are also involved in pouring the wine into the barrels with a funnel. This requires a delicate hand and concerted focus. Getting frustrated just makes one prone to error. And even the cleaning up is part of the experience. “According to the Maharsha, you can identify the techinas hanefesh of the person who made the wine. The person’s personality matters,” Mr. Engel says. He’s proud of his children’s involvement and appreciates that the process aids in maturity, personality development and overall refinement. And, of course, he’s pleased that that passion for winemaking is already extending to the next generation.

Ad D’lo Yada Nothing in our calendar is by chance. Grapes are fermented in harvest season, which takes place right after Sukkos. Simple math will tell us that Adar is four months later

— and that’s when the first batch is ready for consumption. Purim and wine go together, but Reb Moishe has his own insight into the tradition of ad d’lo yada. “The common misconception is that it is necessary to become so drunk that one can’t tell the difference between arrur Haman and baruch Mordechai. Over the years, there have been many different interpretations of ad d’lo yada, but I believe that it simply means that when drinking a sufficient amount of wine, a person’s true essence is revealed. “Some people might give that tzaddik impression, but wine can reveal their true nature. On the other hand, there are people whom you never thought much of, yet after a few glasses, their sincerity and ehrlichkeit shine through.” Wine is revealing — and transformational.

Lofty Libations Not all wine consumption is the same — outside circumstances can impact the way even the best wine is appreciated. Sometimes the same wine tastes differently, depending on the surroundings or one’s temperament that day. A nicer weather, or simply taking on a more positive attitude, can suddenly allow us to appreciate the beauty and full flavor of the wine — and life. L’chaim!

There are about as many opinions about drinking on Purim as there are Yidden, but for me, I see it as sort of a yearly “checkup” (Nichnas yayin, yatza sod). Once a year, when the mask is off, I get an inside peek at where I’m really up to. Some years, I have to admit, the results were somewhat… sobering, but most years, baruch Hashem, I was happy to discover that there were no hidden Hamans inside of me, waiting to jump out.

THE MONSEY VIEW / 163


Besides whether to drink on Purim, there’s also the question of what to drink. Obviously, wine’s the ikkar inyan, but I think wine must have been stronger back then (as indeed Chazal tell us), because nowadays, to drink enough to get seriously “besumi” wouldn’t leave in the stomach any “room-y.” I’ve tried different eitzos over the years. For a while, my Purim drink was vodka with Pepsi Max. I found that the latter’s high caffeine content would counteract the former’s tendency to put me to sleep (which, according to some, would actually be the best way to be yatza). Of course, I’d have a glass or two of wine as well, as a nod to tradition. But being a creative cook by vocation and avocation, I’ve since branched out into exploring other, more-interesting (and tasty) homemade concoctions that can add a little “spirit” to the Purim seudah, and to the after-fish l’chaim at the Shabbos table, as well. (Speaking of which, why is it that after making Kiddush and a small l’chaim at the Shabbos table, I already can feel tipsy, but on Purim, cup after cup of wine doesn’t seem to make a dent?) Others may be different, but to me, a good recipe has to have just two qualities: It has to be simple and taste good. I don’t like to patchke, and also, I feel it’s more of a kuntz — and the sign of a good cook — to be able to make more out of less. (I think this is a pretty common Yiddishe trait, and in fact, I once heard that it’s about our wanting to come as close as possible to emulate the Eibeshter’s making the world, “yesh m’ayin.” But then again, maybe we’ll just consign that one to a Purim Torah and move on to making some fun, easy and delicious recipes — yesh m’yayin!

PURIM SANGRIA

Sangria is a traditional Spanish drink consisting essentially of wine and fruit. I call this recipe “Purim” Sangria to distinguish it from my famous (at least among my family and friends) “Pesach Sangria,” as this recipe calls for some added brandy to give it more of a kick, while on Pesach we personally only use wine and not (even kosher for Pesach) liquor. It’s best made the day before to let the flavors mix. This recipe yields a large pitcher.

INGREDIENTS 1 standard-size bottle of red wine Dry, semi-dry or sweet, depending on what you like. Another option is to use dry wine and then sweeten it to taste with sugar or your favorite diet sweetener.

½ cup brandy 2 oranges 1 lemon Sprigs of fresh mint leaves (optional)

DIRECTIONS 1.

Pour the bottle of wine and the brandy into a large pitcher (at least 1½ times the volume of your wine bottle). You can taste a bit with a spoon at this point and sweeten as desired.

2.

Slice the oranges and lemon horizontally into about ¼-inch slices. If not seedless, remove the seeds from the slices. They can be either peeled or unpeeled. It looks nicer unpeeled, but the peel’s intense citrus zest can strike some as bitter (and halachically, it may also be preferable peeled). Add to the wine/brandy mixture.

3.

Refrigerate. (It’s best to do so overnight, though it will still taste good fresh. It can last in the refrigerator for at least a week, and actually tastes better with age!)

4.

Serve in glasses (on ice, or not), with a sprig of fresh mint over the lip of the glass (optional) to decorate.

HEIMISHE CHOCOLATE LIQUEUR

This classic, creamy, parve liqueur can be made as lightchocolate, medium or dark, and lends itself to various flavor options.

INGREDIENTS 12 eggs ½ cup vodka ½ cup cocoa powder (for medium chocolate coloring; add an additional ¼ cup for dark chocolate; use ¼ cup less for light)

½ cup powdered sugar (or equivalent of diet sweetener) 2 tsp. vanilla extract

DIRECTIONS 1.

Crack and check the eggs (for extra-thick liqueur, use only the yolks of twice as many eggs). Pour into a blender, or the blending cup of a hand blender.

2.

Add the vodka, cocoa powder, sugar and vanilla. Blend until thoroughly mixed. (You might have to coax the chocolate powder down with a spatula during the blending process, as it tends to clump up near the top.)

3.

Pour mixture into your decanter, pitcher, etc. Chill and enjoy! Store refrigerated.

FLAVOR OPTIONS: To make Mocha Liqueur, substitute instant coffee powder for half the cocoa powder. For Mint Chocolate Liqueur, add a teaspoon of mint extract. Experiment with different flavorings; I’ve found hazelnut extract makes it especially geshmak.

PIÑA COLADA

This is a refreshing, Caribbean-based drink, mixing tangy pineapple with creamy coconut. A friend reported to me that he was once on a Caribbean cruise, and they docked and stopped off at one of the local island tourist traps. He watched as some tourists from another ship eagerly imbibed the free piña coladas being freely offered by the smiling sales clerks. Happy at getting “something for nothing,” they were sure they’d taken advantage of the natives — who actually got the last laugh, as the now-tipsy tourists ended up spending ten times as much as they ever would sober!

INGREDIENTS 1 cup pineapple juice

1 cup cream of coconut

⅔ cup light rum (If preferred, you can substitute for vodka, with a tablespoon of rum extract.)

DIRECTIONS Pour all ingredients into a blender or the cup of a hand blender. Blend, and serve over ice. As delicious as it is easy. L’chaim!

Tutus and face paint are a fun combination for any time of year! But you can’t prance around in such a getup on just any day. Thank You, Hashem, for Purim, when we can express our creativity and watch children (and some adults, too!) glow as they proudly show off their costumes.

Face Painting

Face paint done right is a costume on its own. Wear the right color clothes, and you have a full look! And it’s pretty simple, especially if you have a photo to copy. Here you will see step-by-step instructions for three adorable looks. But with these few tips under your belt, and any face paint picture to copy, you’re good to go!

Supplies needed:

Basic colors:

1: Face paint The most important thing to keep in mind is to buy the right type of face paint. I recommend waterbased, washable face paint. When mixed with a bit of water, the paint should be smooth and opaque, dry quickly, and wash off easily with soap and water. Many face paints come in packages with a few colors. Check to make sure that the package you purchase has either the specific colors you need, or the primary colors in addition to black and white.

2: Soft bristle brush, with a fine tip

With these colors you can create any color you’ll need.

3: Small sponge A face paint kit will usually come with a brush and sponge. Otherwise, you can use any good paintbrush and makeup sponge.

4: Fine grain glitter (optional) 5: Cup of water

Add red for warmer brown, or purple and green for darker shades.

6: Paper towel

February 19, 2020 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 173 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


Good to know before you start: • Before you begin, assess the face you’ll be working on. See if you may need to adjust the design based on the shape and size of the face. (Think: A smaller forehead may need the snowman’s head lower down, closer to the nose.) • Looking at a full picture can often be overwhelming: Where should you start? Try breaking the picture you want to draw into smaller shapes. That usually helps. • To start painting, wet the sponge or brush with water. Rub it gently on the cake of paint. The less water you use, the more opaque the colors will be.

SNOWMAN 1. Using a wet sponge rubbed into white paint, create a small circle between the eyebrows.

2.

Continue by making wide moon-shaped strokes around the eyes, and longer moons shaping the cheeks.

3.

Add white down the nose and on the eyelids.

4.

Switch to the brush, and with black paint, draw the hat and outline as shown.

• Always start with the background color using a sponge (like the pink on the ballerina) or with the filler colors (like the white on the snowman). • Once the background and fillers are done, proceed to draw the black or white outlines. Using the brush, overlap the background color (you don’t want a gap of skin showing). • Last, focus on the small details that need a brush. • Make sure to wash your brush and sponge between colors!

And now you’re ready!

174 / THE MONSEY VIEW / February 19, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

5.

Add little black dots for the eyes, mouth and buttons on the nose.

6. Time for the

orange carrot! Using a brush, press down between the two eyes of the snowman and slowly bring the brush off the forehead to create a narrow tip. (Mix red and yellow to get orange.)

7.

For extra sparkle, add some glitter with your fingertip.


CLOWN

BALLERINA

1. Start with the filler col-

ors using a sponge around the mouth, nose and eyes. Make sure to wash the sponge between colors. (Mix white and blue to get light blue.)

1. With a sponge, paint the eyelids and sides of the face pink. (Mix red and white for pink.)

2.

You don’t want exact outlines of pink; once the background is done, stretch the pink paint softly by using a clean sponge and blending it into the skin.

3.

Using thick white paint and a brush, create the swirls as shown. You may want to practice this first on your arm until you get the hang of it.

2. Using the brush, create the black outlines. 3. Add white strokes

as shown to enhance the outlines.

4.

Add some glitter with your fingertip for extra glam!

TUTUS If you’re like me, you might love crafting and creating but have no idea (or interest) in sewing. And if you’re like me, you probably want to know how to make a costume without a sewing machine... By making a tutu, is my answer! Tutus are not only fun to wear; they are also fun to make! Follow along as I show you how to make these adorable skirts.

Supplies: 1: 6-inch rolls of desired color tulle These can be found in craft stores, gift wrapping shops, or on Amazon. You’ll need one full roll for a size 2–3 skirt. If you’d like, you can also use regular tulle that you would buy in a fabric store and cut it into 6-inch strips. In that case, you’ll need 1½ yards for one size 2–3 skirt.

2: Rubber (for the waistband) 3: Needle and thread 4: Scissors 5: 1-gallon water bottles Or anything about that size to use as a “mannequin” for your tutu while you make it.

Let’s get started! Before anything, you need measurements. Measure the child’s waistline and the desired length from the waist down.

176 / THE MONSEY VIEW / February 19, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


1. Cut a piece of rubber for the waistband. You may want to make the waistband an inch shorter than measured, since the rubber stretches. Using a threaded needle, sew the loose ends together to form a circle.

4.

Place your rubber waistband on a gallon water bottle (or whatever you are using; I used two bottles because I couldn’t find anything bigger at home).

5.

2.

Double your desired skirt length and measure one piece of tulle. Use that piece to guide you as you unravel the roll of tulle and keep folding it to the same length.

Work with two pieces of tulle at a time. Fold them in half (together). Find the center with your finger.

6. Place the

tulle, loop facing down, behind the rubber.

3.

Find the center at the edges of your big “new roll” of tulle. Cut along the fold. Do the same on the other end. You should now have lots of strips of tulle that are all the same (or almost the same) length.

7.

Pull the four loose ends down through the loop.

February 19, 2020 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 177 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


8.

9.

Pull them down tightly until the top forms a tight knot on the rubber.

Continue until your waistband is covered in tulle.

10.

When you’re done, check if any pieces are too long and trim accordingly.

VARIATIONS: 1. For a multicolored tutu,

2.

For a doublelayered look, like the ballerina’s, first do the bottom layer, following the standard instructions. When you’re done, add another, shorter layer by knotting the tulle in between the knots of the first layer.

like the clown’s, I attached the different colors of tulle in sets of three.

Your Closeted Life Story Between the Megillah and the Haggadah, there’s a lot of emphasis on telling our stories. Awareness of where we come from, and all that has transpired since then, gives us a sense of identity. It tells us who we are. Our stories are important — and it is not only told in words. Our homes, specifically our closets, tell a tale, and they tell it through our possessions. They speak of past values, present priorities and dreams for the future. This week we’ll “trim” some of this redundantly written story, because as boring or exciting as that story may be, it can likely benefit from some expert editing. To that end, this week we will be decluttering the closets in your home — another area where food shouldn’t reside. You may have picked up on the idea that the countdown starts with areas that are typically chometzfree year round, but would still benefit from a refreshing spring cleaning. Redefining our cleaning as a pre-yom tov task turns the work into a mitzvah! We’re clever that way. As we reorganize our wardrobe closets, let’s not Being that I don’t know the layout of your forget the actual purpose of the project: Pesach home, it would be somewhat presumptuous cleaning. The true halachic requirements here of me to assume that you have just these five are the pockets and cuffs. Optimal tools are the closets. This is why I trust you all to act like vacuum cleaner alongside an old toothbrush. It the smart women you are and write a list of all needn’t take long — but it does need to get done! the closets in your home before your start and assign a reasonable workload for each day.

Sunday February 23

Master bedroom closet

Sometimes it can feel painful to dispose of our possessions. But the initial sting does fade after just a few minutes — and disappears entirely when we open those closet doors and smile at the order and space in our little slice of heaven. A Pesach-ready closet can be achieved in 30 minutes with three simple steps: 1. Empty the closet in its entirety. 2. Wipe the shelves, rods and walls. Vacuum and wash the floor. 3. Replace the items. Once the closet is empty, each item should get looked at and seriously assessed with the triple-question questionnaire: Do I love it? Do I use it? Do I need it? Honesty is your friend here, and if none of the questions were met with an affirmative answer, the item can’t make it back into your closet. It’s that simple.

Monday February 24

Kids’ closets

The kids’ closets can likely benefit from a healthy weeding. Check for items hiding at the back and bottom of the pile, and consider whether it’s time to let them go. Among the many benefits, spacious and organized closets make putting laundry away a more pleasurable chore.

Bonus tips: • Small boxes or bins, placed on upper shelves and neatly labeled, are ideal for out-of-season clothing. (This is not the space for those items that never proved useful, but “Hey, you never know!” Be honest. You do know.) • Shoes easily mess up our closets because we assign them a general area, without any of the pairs having a designated spot. For the kids’ closet, cubes built to run up one narrow area can rectify that easily — provided you assign specific spots for each pair.

Tuesday February 25

Linen closet

Another day, another closet. But after removing all contents, before you put the linen sets, tablecloths or towels back onto the shelves, ask yourself this: When was the last time I used it? When will be the next time? If those questions stump you — you know what you have to do. Once your linen closet only has items you actually use, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the space you’ve earned. Do this successfully with each closet, and there will only be one thing left to say: Welcome to your new home!

PESACH CLEANING

Wednesday February 26

WEEK 6

OF THE EIGHT-WEEK COUNTDOWN

The entrance closet

The most important rule for the entrance closet is for it to only store items that are seasonally relevant. Functionality is key! For an inexpensive yet nifty solution, consider the versatility of hooks. Hooks work especially well for kids’ jackets and knapsacks by making use of otherwise dead space. Even more conveniently, hooks installed at the right height will make it feasible for kids to put their own stuff away. That’s a double win! Another clever tip for this closet is to assign individual bins either for categories (scarves, gloves, rain bonnets, etc.) or for each child. Assigning a location for all the odds and ends that belong in the entrance closet is the simplest way of ensuring order.

Thursday February 27

Toy and game closet

Toy closets can generally benefit from decluttering as well. If a game has parts missing, pieces that are broken, or has never captured your family’s interest, it is wasting prime real estate! A rule of thumb: The less toys accessible, the more appealing the remaining games look. Work with the toy rotation concept I mentioned last week, and you’ll quickly realize that having less games within reach means that both cleanup and maintenance are now much easier.

Friday February 28

Makeup day!

Today you get to make up whichever closet you may have missed.

Sunday March 1

Between 12:00 p.m and 12:00 a.m.

Call The Monsey View and leave a voicemail at 845-600-8484, ext. 803, stating that you have completed this week’s tasks. Include your full name and phone number.

Final Thoughts The newly spacious and organized closets in your home will be giving you so much joy; let’s spread some of that cheer into other people’s lives — it’ll double your happiness! Which is as it should be: Mishenichnas Adar marbin b’simcha! When giving things away, recognize your opportunity to give — at no cost to you. Giving should always be done with a smile, which holds true even when the smile can’t be seen. So as you review those items you plan to give away, make sure they’re clean and there are no missing buttons or torn hems. Fold sets into each other, pinning accessories onto the outfit they belong to. When blessed with the opportunity to give tzedakah and enhance others’ lives, let’s do our best to make the recipient feel good about the handout.

‫נפלה עטרת ראשינו‬ Klal Yisroel has lost one of our great Torah luminaries, HaRav Pesach Eliyahu Falk zt”l. His legendary halachic works extol the value of a modest Bas Yisroel and are pillars of guidance and clarity in all areas of tznius.

“When such unorthodox methods of deception are used to circumvent this mitzvah, one naturally feels that, ‫“ — נפלה עטרת ראשינו‬The crown of our heads has fallen” (Eicha 5:16) (Rav Falk in his sheitel book on laced sheitels/tops/fronts)

Look married. Look modest. Performing this mitzvah properly procures great dividends:  It is a source of Yiras Shomayim

A Woman that recently started covering her hair overheard on e lady say to another, “I didn’t know that you stopped coverin g your hair.” to which the woman responded, “Chas v’shalom! it’s the new lace front…” The woman observing this was horrified. This doesn’t make any sense…

 It is a source of Kedusha and inspiration  It demonstrates submission to Hashem’s will  It protects from illness & pain  It demonstrates the purity of Jewish family life  It is a powerful merit for children who outshine all others

and “About lace front sheitels: ...It’s made purposefully to hide absolutely true totally the fact that this person has a wig on her head and it’s not her into hair... It’s in our hands to stop it, not to allow this treife reality to seep our society. Whatever we can do to stem it, it’s our obligation to do so.” can be heard on As stated by Rav Falk zt’’l the day before his petirah (original recording Inspire by Wire, option 7,6,3,1)

Life at a Glance MENACHEM, age 24: works in sales 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. Menachem’s job isn’t bringing in enough to cover, and their debts are catching up with them. Real numbers and real facts. Identifying details have been changed to protect privacy.

Recap: Leah shares her food strategies and how they were able to dramatically cut their grocery budget down to $500 a month.

Leah: It’s been four weeks, and it’s time to plan our next monthly budget. March, here we come! We start out with our basic budget from last month and work off that. Some things worked pretty well (we were able to stick to our $500 food budget!), but others need to be adjusted. (One example is taxis. We really could use more, especially with Menachem working such long hours... I ended up walking a lot, which is fine for exercise, but not for my time-sensitive schedule.)

Coach’s Take As we discussed last month, It can take up to three months of budgeting to have a budget that accurately predicts your expenses and reflects real numbers. That’s why updating your budget every week is so important. Tracking your actual income and expenses and comparing them to what you predicted helps you plan for the time left before the money runs out. Plus, you’ll have an easier time writing future budgets when you have real numbers to base them on.

Breakdown

We’re aiming for $1,000 as soon as possible. We’re already up to $70, which means we need another $930. But with the projected income and expenses this month, it seems we have enough for $816. We’re putting the rest ($114) onto our wish list, so if the money comes in unexpectedly (which is what sometimes happens with Leah’s gown business) or if we end up spending less than planned on anything, that’s the first thing it’ll go to.

Menachem:

Meet the Coach

Now that we’re budgeting and I’m bringing home a better income (more than my wife, for a change!), life is a lot less stressful. Coming home now is the highlight of my day! I work so hard to provide for my wife and kids, and I’m proud of it. I think of them all day and look forward to seeing the kids’ shining little faces and tucking them in at night. One big thing that has changed is that we can communicate about money freely — just facts and feelings, no blame or judgment. We’re budgeting, planning and problem-solving together, and I feel that this helps set the tone for respectful communication in other areas of our life as well.

Coach’s Take Money is a topic that could and should be planned and discussed by every couple. Now that Menachem and Leah are reviewing their budget every week, so much stress has been eliminated, and even overall communication between them is improving.

Where Corks Come From Ever wondered what exactly cork is? Cork comes from a tree, the cork oak, whose bark is stripped to harvest the cork. The bark is then boiled, softening it, after which the rough outer layer is stripped away. When all is cleaned up and ready, sections of cork are punched out in cylindrical shapes for use as wine stoppers. At least 50% of cork used worldwide comes from Portugal. The country makes 40 million cork wine stoppers a day, and southern Portugal has 1.8 million acres of cork forest! The cork oak is a protected species in Portugal, where specific laws were instituted to protect trees from being damaged. When the bark is stripped following these laws, trees are unharmed and regrow their bark, allowing them to continue bringing cork to the world.

200 / THE MONSEY VIEW

Cork is only harvested when the tree reaches 25 years of age. After that, the trees are given around 9 years of rest before they are harvested again. The first harvest of cork bark is unusable. The second harvest, too, is not suitable for making wine stoppers. It is only the third harvest and beyond that yield wine bottle–worthy cork. Imagine: Every natural cork wine stopper you hold is typically 43 years or older! Cork harvesters are highly paid, and it takes a year of apprenticeship to learn to do the job correctly without harming the tree.


By: Ruchy Reese

Plugging It Up Before cork wine stoppers were invented, French vinters plugged wine bottles with wooden pegs wrapped in hemp rags that had been soaked in oil. Corks used in wine bottles are typically made of a single piece of punched-out cork, whereas champagne bottles usually have stoppers made of cork particles. Ever wondered why you can get the cork out of a bottle but can never seem to get it fully back in? This is because cork contains what’s called an “elastic memory.” It can be compressed to up to half its normal size, but will return to its original shape with time. Corks that are made to be slightly larger than bottle openings are compressed using powerful machinery before being inserted. Over a short period of time, the cork re-expands, leaving you unable to push it back in! It’s not just wine that has been stopped up with cork; some of the first bottles of Coca-Cola featured cork stoppers. Cork is a very environmentally friendly material. It is biodegradable and sustainable, and it recycles easily, leaving behind no toxic residue. Cork can be immersed in liquid for centuries without rotting. There’s one “cork” that’s known less for wine and more for beer… That would be the city of Cork in Ireland. Wine stoppers make up most of cork’s use; however, with cork’s highly prized qualities of being lightweight, buoyant, fire-resistant and hardy, it is sometimes used in shoes, flooring, insulation and more.
