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

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-

(Re: A Breath of Fresh Air, Issue 236) I’m writing in response to the article about the baby with eczema. The mother of the baby was describing her baby scratching herself, and I felt her pain all the way. We had the same story, and we’re still in it, but one very important thing really helped me: There are mittens from the company Scratch Me Not that babies can’t take off, and they were really helpful in our case. I want to share this information to help other people whose babies have eczema. These gloves are available either on Amazon or at www.scratchmenot.com.

MUMOIN CHECK CASHING

(Inbox, Issue 237) I’m not sure why “A Housewife” assumes I’ll be busy with my mishloach manos for “weeks on end.” I happen to put them together a day or two before Purim. But aside from that, the point I’m trying to make is that people need to differentiate between cleaning the house (aka spring cleaning) and searching for and removing chometz (aka Pesach cleaning). The letter-writer says that “there is something special about thoroughly Pesach-cleaning our homes.” I believe that’s wrong. There may indeed be something special about thoroughly cleaning our homes (and there is! There really is!), but please do not claim that this has anything at all to do with Pesach. If you choose to deep-clean your home at the same time as preparing for Pesach, then

gezunterheit. But titling an article “Pesach Cleaning” when it discusses how to clean windows, curtains and lampshades is misleading. Signed, The Same Balabusta Who Doesn’t Stress Pesach

RE: STUCK IN THE MUD (Inbox, Issue 233) In your February 5th issue, a reader responded to your letter. I fully agree with the four points mentioned and would like to add to that. 1. The Yidden in the midbar only got enough mann each day for that day. I once heard that nobody finishes saying Parshas Hamann and suddenly finds a million dollars in their bank account. So how does it work? When one’s emunah is really strong, he does not need a million dollars! He is happy with whatever he has for today and believes that Hashem will send tomorrow any money he will need tomorrow! This is the lesson of Parshas Hamann — to have the belief that Hashem truly feeds each of us every day. 2. The Mishnah Berurah says that the main segulah of Parshas Hamann is the pasuk: “Vayamdu ba’omer v’lo he’edif hamarbeh hamamit.” If anyone took more or less than an omer, it didn’t affect the outcome. You will never have more or less than Hashem wants you to have, no matter the hishtadlus! 3. The tips from the financial coach are really great and important. Anyone with an income that can make it work should budget as part of their hishtadlus. But when bederech hateva it just can’t work, do not use credit cards. Budget for the week, the day, or even the hour. Buy any good sefer on emunah, and learn for ten minutes a day to understand how. Daven to Hashem, believe, and you will see that a Yid is never truly stuck in the mud. Hashem will get you out of it. 4. The Tur (Orach Chaim: 242) states: “V’al yomar ha’yach achaser parnasasi… chutz mei’hotza’as Shabbos… levu alei v’ani pora…” We all know the story of Yosef Moker Shabbos. The happy ending just makes so much sense. We had more than once that we literally spent our last dollar to be mechabed Shabbos, “borrowing” from our bank account all the money we knew we would need for the next week. The results? By the time we needed the money, we always got it back — plus more — from ways we couldn’t even have dreamed. After all, Hashem promised. C U S T O M

5. I once heard a story about a person who was poor, started saying the Ani Maamins (I think three times a day), and became wealthy. At one point he stopped and lost all his money. Let’s try to do our best hishtadlus while remembering that it all depends on Hashem. Then we will surely see a lot of bracha! A Reader

YOUR VOICE

Keep your sanity.

ALLERGY ALERT I write this to all party planners, and anyone who sends home-baked goods to simchos. Everyone is aware of peanut allergies, and many schools even ban peanut-based snacks. Sesame allergy, however, while not as prevalent as peanut allergy, perhaps, is just as dangerous. It used to be that sesame seeds on rolls were the only thing an allergic person had to watch out for, and it was visible to the naked eye. Lately, however, halvah, which is made from sesame seeds, became the “new” ingredient in many baked goods. A relative, who is always very cautious about what she eats, actually landed in the emergency room after eating what seemed like a plain cookie at a simcha. If you must use halvah, please put a note near the tray (like many rabbanim advise to do if a dish is milchig). Let’s keep our simchos safe for everyone. Shira Weiss

THE REALITY OF THE RACE As we are about to display our mishenichnas Adar signs, and the congestion in our shopping areas is mounting, I pause for thought. What brings us simcha? And is it the simcha that Chazal refer to? Or is it all about creating the theme for our costumes and mishloach manos? Does it bring us simcha to make that “perfect impression,” to run that frantic race that has us gripped in its clutches, a race we almost don’t realize we’re running? Dare we wonder why stress-related disorders are so rampant today? Why our children are so genuinely needy? Why the therapy industry is booming? (The junk they consume only compounds these issues.) We rationalize: “It’s simchas yom tov, and I need a creative outlet!” Let’s be real. L’achar meah v’esrim shanah, when the emes alone will testify, how will we reap the fruits of our labor? Let’s take the time and energy we are blessed with and invest in our life’s everlasting treasures. And may we experience the eternal joy of true simcha, always. Sincerely, M.G.

PA RS H A S T E RU M A H Before becoming rebbe, R’ Mordechai of Zvhil, zy�a, was learning in Yeshiva Eitz Chaim in Yerushalayim. R’ Mordechai’s daughter got engaged at that time, and he needed to raise $26,000 to cover the cost of the chasunah. R’ Mordechai approached the administrator of the yeshivah and requested a list of the names and addresses of the wealthy people who supported the yeshivah, explaining that he wished to write letters to the donors to request donations toward his daughter’s chasunah expenses. Wishing to help, but not wanting to diminish the capacity of the yeshivah’s current donors to continue supporting the yeshivah to the greatest extent possible, the administrator gave R’ Mordechai a list of names and addresses of people who had supported the yeshivah in the past, but who had not donated in a long time. When R’ Mordechai came home with the list, his wife pointed out that the list was probably a list of people who no longer had the financial means to donate large amounts. R’ Mordechai replied that it did not matter, as he was simply doing his hishtadlus, to which his wife responded that if all he wanted was to do his hishtadlus, then really he would only

need to send out one letter. Seeing the truth in her words, R’ Mordechai sent out one letter and then returned to his learning. Not long afterward, the person to whom R’ Mordechai had written responded with a money order for the full amount of $26,000. Tremendously grateful, R’ Mordechai returned to the yeshivah administrator to thank him for his help, explaining that he had received the full amount. The administrator was dumbfounded and asked if R’ Mordechai’s letters had all been answered. R’ Mordechai explained that he had, in fact, only sent one letter, and baruch Hashem, he’d received the full amount he needed from that one donor. Surprised, the administrator called the former donor who had sent the large money order to R’ Mordechai and pointed out to the donor that if he could afford to send $26,000 to R’ Mordechai, then surely he could start to support the yeshivah again. The man replied that, sadly, he was no longer wealthy and was not in a position to support the yeshivah. In fact, it was not his own money that he had sent to R’ Mordechai. What had happened was that after the donor’s own daughter

The extent to which we believe in our hearts that Hashem is hidden in everything in this world and in everything that occurs, is the extent to which we’ll merit to have Hashem dwell among us.

became a kallah, she was diagnosed with a serious illness. The man went to R’ Moshe Feinstein, zy�a, and asked how to handle the situation with the chasan and his family. R’ Moshe Feinstein replied that if the man’s daughter had money of her own, then she should donate it for hachnasas kallah, and in that zechus she would walk to the chuppah in good health. The man’s daughter withdrew all the money she had in her bank account and sent it to R’ Mordechai to pay his daughter’s chasunah. It had been his daughter

who’d sent the $26,000, not the donor himself. It says in this week’s parsha, “V’asu li mikdash v’shachanti b’socham — And they shall make for Me a sanctuary, and I shall dwell among them” (Shemos 25:8). The Sfas Emes explains that the word mikdash has the same shoresh as the word kadosh. Kadosh means holy, but it also means separate. Hashem is holy, and Hashem is separate, because Hashem is hidden. The extent to which we believe in our hearts that Hashem is hidden in everything in this world and in everything that occurs, is the extent to which we’ll merit to have Hashem “dwell among us,” meaning that we will be zoche to a greater awareness of Hashem. A person will merit the revelation of Hashem to the extent that the person believes in Hashem. Purim is approaching, bringing with it a similar message. Just as Hashem’s name is never mentioned in Megillas Esther, yet His hand is abundantly clear in the story, so, too, is Hashem running the world, though we may not always see it. Hashem indeed runs the world whether we see it or not, but the more emunah we have, the more we are zoche to seeing Hashem’s hashgacha in the world. R’ Mordechai, who later became the Zvhiler Rebbe, believed strongly that it is Hashem Who is running the world, and he understood that his own hishtadlus needed not be more than writing a single letter to one person. In the zechus of the strength of his emunah, R’ Mordechai was zoche that the entire amount he needed came in response to that one letter, which was indeed an open revelation of Hashem’s hashgacha. May we all strengthen ourselves in our emunah and be zoche to the time when the galus will end and Hashem’s Presence will be clearly revealed. May it come speedily in our days.

Community Members Shine in Library Stabbing Emergency response teams within the local community were the first to make it to the scene of a fatal stabbing that took place at Finkelstein Memorial Library, rushing the victim to the hospital and comforting panic-stricken patrons. The incident took place at approximately 2 p.m. on February 18 on the library’s third floor. The Spring Valley Police Department reported that 25-year-old Blanchard Gaudin stabbed security guard Sandra Wilson repeatedly after she asked him to lower the volume of the music he was listening to on his phone. Gaudin’s attempts to flee the scene were thwarted by library patrons. “The floor was packed with Yidden,” Chaverim coordinator Yossi Margaretten told The Monsey View. “One yungerman took a chair and threw it in his face, and then

Hospital. Chaverim members stayed on scene while the library was locked down by police, reassuring visitors who were stunned by the violence that occurred in a place that is frequented by thousands of local families. According to The Journal News, Glaudin had been arrested in December and held in the county jail for several days after being charged with a violent attack that took place in Nyack Hospital, where he was a patient, several weeks earlier. He was held on $100,000 bail, but with no indictment issued by the Rockland County District Attorney’s Office and no preliminary hearing held, he was released under New York’s new bail reform laws. Glaudin had been ordered to undergo a mental health examination and had missed several court-ordered hearings in January because he was hospitalized. Libraries are often frequented by homeless people, and Glaudin reportedly tried to sleep in the library one night, with staff members expressing concerns about him on multiple occasions. While incidents of library violence are rare, Finkelstein has security guards stationed on each of its three floors, and Executive Director Laura Wolven said that it is continuing to explore ways to protect patrons. “We are trying to make the best decisions for our patrons while keeping them safe while providing the best possible service,” said Wolven.

Better Cell Phone Service Ahead on PIP’s Northern End?

a 15-year-old jumped him. Two Yidden helped him out, holding the man down until police arrived.” Rockland County District Attorney Thomas Walsh offered his praise, saying, “I want to commend the brave citizens who reacted without fear for their safety by subduing the suspect. We will ensure that justice is served in this horrible crime.” Margaretten said that nearly twenty Hatzolah and Chaverim members responded within minutes. Hatzolah members performed CPR on Wilson, but the 52-year-old mother of three who had recently become a grandmother was pronounced dead a short time later at Good Sam

A meeting held last week should bring relief to travelers on the Palisades Interstate Parkway as well as visitors to Harriman State Park, with plans underway for Verizon to provide cell phone service in areas where coverage is spotty and, in some places, nonexistent. The northern portions of the highway and parts of Route 6 have long been known for their dismal cell phone services. A meeting held between Senator David Carlucci, Senator James Skoufis, local EMS agencies and NYS Police on February 20 highlighted the dangers of not being able to call for help when emergencies arise. “When first responders are delayed in getting to a crash scene, lives can be lost,” noted Carlucci. “The stretch of roadways that we are talking about are very busy, and we saw in 2019 nearly one fatal accident every month.”

Carlucci said that construction of two cell phone towers has been approved on parklands that are owned by the state, and that while Verizon has known about the problem since 2015, it has been slow to act on the matter. Plans call for a 70-foot tower in the Overlook Lodge area of Bear Mountain and a 120-foot tower at the southern end of the Anthony Wayne Recreation Area’s southern parking lot. The Journal News reported that both towers will be built this year by Homeland Towers for Verizon, but no firm timetable has been announced. Regional Manager Vincent Xavier said that his company has been working to resolve the coverage issues. “We anticipate the project moving forward rapidly and hope other carriers will join this effort in short order,” said Xavier.

Bais Yaakov Names Clarkstown and Citizens Group in $10M Discrimination Suit One month after Clarkstown purchased a failing church property after refusing to grant permits to a Bais Yaakov that had contracted to buy the parcel, the town is facing a $10 million federal discrimination lawsuit. The Journal News reported that Ateres Bais Yaakov alleged that its constitutional rights were violated through the town’s “calculated and discriminatory efforts” to deny the school the permits it needed for the nearly three-acre parcel on Demarest Avenue in Nanuet. According to the lawsuit filed under the federal Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act of 2000 (more commonly known as RLUIPA), those actions sabotaged Ateres Bais Yaakov’s efforts to obtain the funding to purchase the property. The lawsuit, which also names the Nanuet Citizens United to Protect Our Neighborhood group as a defendant, charged that Clarkstown’s purchase of the property, to be used as either a senior housing development or parking for the school district, was proof of “its disingenuous efforts.” The legal filing asked the court to force Clarkstown to sell the property to Ateres Bais Yaakov for $4.55 million, the same amount that the town was paying for the parcel, and for all of the required permits to be issued, allowing the school to operate. It also requested that $10 million in damages be awarded to compensate for financial losses that have been sustained due to the legal wrangling, which included declining enrollment, the cost of renting temporary space, and storage and other fees. “The town set out on a plan to abuse their power as a municipality to block Ateres from purchasing the property at the behest of, and encouraged by, individuals who want to keep Orthodox Jews out of their neighborhood, and their plan worked,”

120 / THE MONSEY VIEW / February 26, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

said attorney Yehudah Buchweitz of the Weil, Gotshal & Manges law firm, which is representing both the school and its founder, Rabbi Aaron Fink. A statement released by Weil, Gotshal & Manges said, “This is but the latest example in the town’s pattern of wreaking havoc on religious property applicants to prevent their engagement in the Clarkstown community.”

After Twelve Days on the “Lamb,” Runaway Sheep Finally Corralled The escapades of the wayward sheep, which had been spotted in numerous locations throughout the Town of Ramapo, have come to an end after it was found more than ten miles away in a group effort by multiple agencies. The Ramapo Police Department reported the first sighting of the sheep in Chestnut Ridge on February 14 and asked for help in finding its owners, hoping to prevent the wandering animal from being injured. Despite releasing pictures of the sheep showing a yellow tag on its right ear, days later its owners still hadn’t been identified, and the animal continued winding its wooly way through Ramapo. Videos released by the Ramapo Police Department on February 19 showed the sheep frolicking in a Wesley Hills playground. Sightings were also reported on Forshay, Dorset, Morris and N. Rigaud roads, as well as in the Brick Church cemetery. The sheep was finally trapped in a fenced-in Stony Point backyard on February 22. Members of the Rockland County Sheriff’s office, the Stony Point Police Department and the Hudson Valley Humane Society rescued the sheep, which was taken to the Hudson Valley Humane Society. After hearing of the sheep’s rescue, Maureen Fallon commented that she had caught a glimpse of the sheep just one day earlier on Suffern Lane in the Garnerville area, thinking to herself at the time, “Oh my, that’s a really big, fluffy dog.”

Is Your Mindset Holding You Back from Healthy Living? Maintaining a healthy lifestyle requires you to have a growth mindset.

Now in order to change your belief you first have to be aware and honest of your mindset.

To help you understand what it means to have a growth mindset let us discuss how most people go about trying to live a healthy lifestyle:

If you’d like to gain a deeper understanding I would highly recommend the book Mindset by Carol Dweck.

Majority of people try to change their way of living by following some sort of program that would give them a fixed way of being. The program would provide strict rules of what you should/shouldn’t eat and when as well as an exercise routine that they must follow and so on. Here is the thing, life is not set in stone. Life can not be confined to a specific set of rules. Life Li plays by its own rules.

Once you are aware of the difference between both On mindsets you want to start recognizing what areas you behave in a fixed mindset and start to adapt the growth mindset. For example: Say you find yourself not living the healthiest lifestyle due to lack of disciplined with your food, feeling overly stressed or not managing to be active the last couple of days.

The fixed mindset says, “Either I have or I don’t." “Either I can eat healthy or I can’t.” “Either I can exercise or I can’t.”

Take time to reflect on what can you learn from this experience. What can you do better? What steps can you put in place in order to make sure you grow?

When life li throws its curve balls and you fall of the band wagon your fixed mindset reiterates your doubts for you. It says, “this is not for you.”

When you start practice a growth mindset in all areas of your life there is no holding back where you can go.

On the other hand, the growth mindset is eager to learn. It’s eager to acquire new skills; eager to grow from the experience. For a growth mindset, when life throws that curve ball gr it is a wonderful opportunity to learn and grow. The difference between those with a growth mindset VS those with the fixed mindset is that they believe that they have it. It is simply a matter of belief.

Recap: The Potolsky children find a mysterious yad while cleaning behind the fridge for Pesach. No one knows who it belongs to. In Bratislava, 1948, Gustav wonders why Janek and Ulush stopped visiting him in the hospital. He learns that the paper he had in his pants pocket when he was brought in to the hospital — which had the names and addresses of Edo’s uncles in Eretz Yisroel — was destroyed. All Gustav remembers from it is Edo’s real name — Yosef Ludmir — and his old address.

The little house slowly underwent a change. Every piece of furniture was cleaned, packed well, and prepared to be sent to the new apartment. The children ate “Erev Pesach suppers” long before they were used to doing so every other year, but Elisheva knew that something had to give; she couldn’t be perfect on all fronts. So they ate pitas and pastrami and franks, and baruch Hashem, no one seemed to be the worse for wear because of it. “We’ve finished the dining room,” Eliyahu said with a sigh of relief late one night. The bookcase was dismantled, the seforim were packed in boxes, and the table and chairs were wrapped in plastic. The little ones were sleeping, crowded tightly into the bedroom. Later, they would be transferred back to their mattresses in the dining room. Elisheva sat down on a plastic chair. “There are two things left to pack, both of which are mysteries: the cuckoo clock and this silver yad.” “Right.” Eliyahu squinted. “What is this? A mystery without an answer, or what?” “There has to be a solution,” Devoiry said, looking from one parent to the other.

“Things don’t just land in homes out of nowhere…” “Maybe one of the little ones brought it in from someplace?” “Who? No one knows what it is,” Elisheva replied. Since they’d found the yad the morning before, the children had gone around to all of the neighbors in the building, asking if they had any idea who it belongs to. Maybe one of the neighbor’s children had brought it over when they’d come to play? But, as Eliyahu had predicted, no one knew anything about it. “We’ll ask what to do with it,” he concluded now. “And what about the cuckoo clock, Elisheva? What do you want to do with it?” Everyone in the room turned to look at the old clock. It was nice, but aside from taking up space in the room, there wasn’t much to it. It really didn’t take up too much space in anyone’s heart. “My father liked it,” Elisheva said hesitantly. “He got it as a wedding gift from a good friend, a watchmaker. But it would often break down…” “And it’s broken again now, too. It’s been so for years already,” Eliyahu said decisive-

ly. “The cuckoo calls every once in a while, but without any rhyme or reason… I don’t see any use for it. Can we throw it out and be done with it?” “We can try to sell it,” Riki suggested. “A cuckoo clock is a valuable thing.” “Not a broken clock that is seriously out of whack. We looked into it once; a repair would cost several hundred shekels.” “And how much does a working cuckoo clock cost?” Binyamin asked. “It depends, of course. But in general, I’m sure it starts at about fifteen hundred shekels; maybe you can get one for a bit less.” Their father passed a hand over his forehead. “I never really researched it, because I never planned to buy a cuckoo clock.” “We got it from Zeidy when he moved to the oldage home,” Elisheva reminded them. She looked at the clock again. “I think that if my father doesn’t mind, we should try to sell it. After all, it’s nice, and someone worked very hard to make the exterior beautiful. Maybe we can get two hundred shekels for it, or two hundred and fifty. If it doesn’t sell, we’ll throw it out.” “We just need to open it up beforehand,” twelveyear-old Chani said with a laugh. “Open it?” her mother asked. “Why?” She blushed. “Because in stories, all kinds of mysterious and ancient items are hidden in old clocks. So it would be a shame to just throw all of those secrets into the garbage...” “The secrets and the treasures!” Binyamin laughed. “Let’s go, then. You have the honor of opening it, Chani.” Elisheva stood up. “I have a key. But it was opened so many times already, that I don’t think you’re going to find anything more major than some dust in there.” “Why was it opened?” Binyamin asked. “Bubby, alehah hashalom, would keep documents in the bottom of the clock, and sometimes also money. But nothing was left of it.” She looked at her daughter’s disappointed expression as she stood in front of the open compartment of the clock, and at her big brothers who were snickering behind her back. “Don’t be disappointed, Chana’le. I told you there’s nothing in there. But it’s good to see that you have a sense of responsibility; you wanted to check the inside of the clock before doing anything with it. That’s an excellent middah.” “Is it possible to open the top?” “The top?” “The cuckoo’s house.” “Chani, are you planning to cut up the clock or something? Then we won’t even be able to sell it afterward.” Devoiry raised an eyebrow. “We can pick up the little roof,” Elisheva told them, “and peek inside. But I’m telling you, Chani, Zeidy opened this roof lots of times, when I was a curious little girl who wanted to see if there were any secrets in there. Kind of like you, Chani! But really, there’s nothing there.”

“But would you let me check it again now?” Elisheva nodded, and then yawned. “And then we’re going to sleep, all of us. Tomorrow is another day of hard work.” Chani climbed onto the plastic-wrapped chair and opened the roof. Despite the earlier snickers, everyone watched her curiously. She peeked inside, and then stuck her hand in. “What’s going on? Is there something inside, or are you just keeping us in suspense?” Riki nudged her. “There’s nothing here.” Chani shook her head. “Nothing besides for the actual cuckoo bird and the metal piece that connects it. I just wanted to be sure.” She jumped off the chair, and like a final accord to the slight tension in the dining room, the little door opened, and after two months of no one hearing any sign of life from the cuckoo bird, it popped out and made its famous call three times. “That’s it!” Elisheva laughed once the cuckoo bird had retreated back into its little house. “The bird had its piece, and now it’s our turn — good night!” * * * * *

“Gustav is about to be released, and the orphanage is being closed down. But they didn’t get certificates for all of the children.” Ulush nodded, patting baby Surah’s back. “What will they do then?” “Well, it’s clear that the curtains are soon coming down on the British show in Eretz Yisroel, but it’s impossible to know how long the last battle will take… And the problem is that it’s really not smart to wait here until it happens, because by then it might be too late.” She nodded again. “So the children will probably travel to Eretz Yisroel ille-

gally — on the children’s ship. It’s the only solution they found right now.” “Gustav too?” “Looks like it. Rabbi Walkin already agreed to take him until the place closes down, because since the police already searched there, there’s less of a risk that they’ll come by again.” “So Gustav will also go to Eretz Yisroel,” she said thoughtfully. “And what about us?” “I found out about the children’s ship.” Janek spoke slowly. “The list is closed already. The ship is full.” “And we have no chance of getting certificates, so we can enter Eretz Yisroel legally?” “I can try, but it will take a long time. And in the last two weeks, there were a few new developments that I still haven’t told you about.” He stood up and walked over to the little cabinet in the corner. “Remember Mendel Kokis, my cousin?” “The one from America?” “Right.

Elisheva sat down on a plastic chair. “There are two things left to pack, both of which are mysteries: the cuckoo clock and this silver yad.” nearly a year ago.” She turned to him. “Entry visas to America?” “Yes.” He closed the cabinet door and returned to the middle of the room. Her eyes were riveted on the envelope in his hand. “This morning we received a positive answer.” Ulush’s eyes widened. “To go to… America?” “I think it’s worth it.” She sat down slowly, gazing at Surah’s round, cherubic face. “Why?” “War is going to break out soon in Eretz Yisroel, and I’m afraid for you and the baby. And it’s not like we have any feasible way of getting to Eretz Yisroel now, anyway. Also, if we go to America,” he glanced at the envelope, “my cousin wants to pay for part of our tickets.” “So does that mean that we won’t be going to Eretz Yisroel? And won’t meet up with Edo and Gustav?” “Well, we can always leave America if we want to. But first I want to see what will happen with the Arabs there in Eretz Yisroel.” He toyed with the envelope, and she realized that he was purposely lowering his eyes so as not to meet her gaze. “And I’ll tell you the truth, Ulush: I have no strength for more S war.” P R I N G 2 0 2 0 “But we’re sending Edo and Gustav there —” “They were never in our official charge, Ulush.” He got up and went back to the cabinet. “We were only watching them for a temporary period of time.”

“But we saved them!” she objected. “Then you can say we were the shlichim, the emissaries designated to help them. But we don’t have the right to make decisions about their future. Most of the people here are choosing to travel to Eretz Yisroel. And that was the natural choice for all of the children under their care, including Edo and Gustav.” Ulush went over to the window. The distant green hills of the village of Senica spread out expansively before her, dotted with well-tended wooden cottages. She’d never lived in a village before the war; she was a city girl through and through. Scenery like this was always associated with vacation, travels and trips. But during the war, when the area where she’d been was so green, light, magical and flourishing, she lost all her love for the green of the trees, the expansive grass and the blue skies. All she dreamed about was Eretz Yisroel’s blue sky. But her dreams were not hers alone anymore. They had to meld with someone else’s dreams. And he was being logical… oh, so logical. “So we’ll be going to America?” Her voice was flat; only her lips trembled. “And you say that it will be easier for us to get there, and that it will be safer for the baby…?” “Yes.” He closed the cabinet’s wooden door. “And I promise you, bli neder, that if we don’t manage there and you aren’t happy, we’ll go to Eretz Yisroel.” “Cohen?” someone called from outside. “Janek?” Janek went to the door and opened it wide for Aryeh Lieber. “I was at the Agudah offices in the city, and I heard that the ship arrived.” “The ship? The one departing next week?” “No, the ship that arrived in Eretz Yisroel. The ship with your Edo on it.” “It arrived safely?” Janek

breathed a sigh of relief and turned around to make sure his wife had heard the good news. “Nu, and what’s happening with the children?” “Right now, they’re under the auspices of... that group — the group whose ideology we want to keep the kids away from, and Akiva sent an urgent message to our people in Haifa that there were three children of ours on the ship and that they need to be transferred to suitable places.” “Of course!” Janek said. Then he wrinkled his forehead. “Do you think there will be a problem?” “I have no idea who they are dealing with there. Schwimmer, the group’s representative we dealt with here, was very fair and promised that they would not take our children beyond making sure that they got there safely.” “I really hope so,” Janek said. “Thanks for the news, Aryeh. I appreciate it.” “And we’re going to accept your cousin’s offer and go to America, just like that?” Ulush’s eyes flashed behind him. “When who knows what’s happening with Edo in Eretz Yisroel and what kind of chinuch he’s going to get?” Janek kept his voice calm and low. “Ulush, even if we do decide to go to Eretz Yisroel, it will take a long time, so we need other people to handle the matter for now, anyway.” He was quiet for a moment and then went over to the window where she stood. “People who are better suited than us for this kind of thing,” he added quietly. She slid her fingers along the clean slats of the wooden shutter. “And Gustav?” she whispered. “Gustav is traveling together with the rest of the children from our orphanage, not with those people. At least you can be relaxed about that.” To be continued...

Sanders Cruises to Victory in Nevada THE PULSE: Senator Bernie Sanders scored a re-

sounding victory in the Nevada caucuses. He won 46.8% of the vote. Joe Biden finished second, with 20.2% of the vote. Pete Buttigieg came in third, with 14.3%; and Elizabeth Warren finished fourth, with 9.7%. Michael Bloomberg did not compete in Nevada and was not on the ballot. Former Vice President Biden attempted to frame the results in a positive light. In an election night speech to his supporters, Biden lauded his first second-place finish as a sign of a comeback. “We’re alive, and we’re coming back,” he said. How-

144 / THE MONSEY VIEW / February 26, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

ever, Biden’s optimism may be misplaced; even though he finished second, his vote total was less than half of Sanders’. THE DELEGATE COUNT: After strong showings in

the primary and caucus contests of Iowa, New Hampshire and Nevada, Senator Sanders has begun to build a formidable delegate lead. Sanders currently leads the pack of contenders with 45 pledged delegates. Mayor Pete Buttigieg is second with 25, and Joe Biden lags in third place with 15. Current polling projects that Sanders will perform well in South Carolina and in many delegate-rich states that compete in the March 3rd Super Tuesday contests. Current polling has Bernie Sanders winning California and shows him neck and neck with Joe Biden for the lead in Texas. Barring the


withdrawal of some moderate candidates before Super Tuesday, it is likely that Bernie Sanders will secure a plurality of delegates and an insurmountable lead for the nomination. Even if some moderate candidates pull out, it is not at all clear that it will be enough to blunt Bernie’s momentum. Polling averages show Sanders defeating both Bloomberg and Buttigieg in hypothetical one-on-one matches among Democratic primary voters. Biden and Warren are the two candidates that appear best poised to challenge Sanders in one-on-one matchups. THE

CHALLENGES: Mainstream establishment Democrats have begun to panic over Sanders’ rise. They perceive the echoes of President Donald Trump’s victorious anti-establishment campaign of 2016. Sanders can expect to be on the receiving end of harsh and pointed criticism by his primary competitors. They will now be aiming to topple him from his front-runner status. There is also the possibility that Michael Bloomberg will begin to use his wealth to unleash a barrage of negative ads against Sanders and his campaign.

THE ISSUES: Sanders is a proponent of left-wing

Democratic socialism. Historically, socialism has not been a popular ideology in the United States. The past peak of socialist support in the United States occurred in 1912 when socialist presidential candidate Eugene V. Debs won 6% of the vote in that year’s presidential election. However, Sanders’ message is currently resonating with a significant number of American voters. DOMESTIC POLICY: Sanders is promising to imple-

ment big government programs, such as guaranteed universal health care, free child care, and free pre-K. He promises “College for All,” which would include tuition-free college and cancellation of outstanding student debt. Sanders is also a vocal supporter of the “Green New Deal” and vows aggressive action to address climate change. He is a supporter of DACA. He is committed to a moratorium on all deportations of illegal immigrants until a thorough audit of past practices is complete. Sanders advocates for expanding social security and increasing union membership. Sanders has not adequately explained how he would fund these proposed government projects. The federal government is currently running record-breaking deficits, and it is hard to see where funding for massive new government entitlements will come from. Sanders concedes that he will have to raise taxes but claims that he can fund his projects by primarily taxing the rich. Sanders also argues that proposed savings on the costs of health care premiums and deductibles will offset in-

creases in the tax burden. Many fear that the increased taxes and government oversight that Sanders envisions will harm the business environment and hurt the American economy. ISRAEL POLICY: Sanders claims to be a supporter of Israel. Following his college graduation, he lived on an Israeli kibbutz for six months. He has publicly criticized Hamas for its missile barrages against Israel. However, his record on issues related to Israel has been highly problematic. Sanders is a vocal advocate for the Palestinian cause. He has been highly critical of Israel’s actions toward the Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza. When fighting flared in 2016, Sanders falsely accused Israel of killing “10,000 innocent Palestinians.” In reality, the figures, according to the UN, were 1,462 civilian deaths, and even that lower number was contestable. He was the only Jewish member of the House who disagreed with a resolution blaming the Second Intifada on Palestinian terrorism. He was one of 45 representatives who voted against a resolution expressing support for Israel’s West Bank security barrier. He was also one of 21 U.S. senators who refused to sign a resolution espousing solidarity with Israel during the 2014 Gaza conflict. In a very public slight to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, the Israeli government and American supporters of Israel, Sanders announced that he would refuse to attend the annual AIPAC conference. He accused the pro-Israel lobbying group of connection to “leaders who express bigotry and oppose basic Palestinian rights.” CONTROVERSIES: Sanders is a highly controversial figure. In 1988, while Mayor of Burlington, Vermont, Sanders chose to vacation in the Soviet Union. Upon his return from behind the Iron Curtain, he gushed positively about the Moscow metro and the low cost of theater tickets in Yaroslavl. Sanders praised the low cost of housing in Russia and the Russian health care system. At no point during his trip, or during his posttrip press conference, did he speak about the plight of Soviet dissidents or criticize Russia’s human rights record. Sanders has also spoken positively about Fidel Castro and his communist takeover of Cuba. In a recent interview, Sanders refused to distance himself from his earlier comments. Instead, he doubled down and stood by his claims. He stressed that even though he disagrees with Castro’s repression of the Cuban people, he feels that Castro had a beneficial impact on his country in the areas of education and health care. As Sanders gains momentum, these past controversies will likely attract more attention and may serve to impede his path to the nomination.

Apple Crumble Tart With Pecans

152 / THE MONSEY VIEW

This very elegant presentation with a divine, meltin-the-mouth taste is a winning combination! While it is a bit more timeconsuming to make than your average apple pie, each of the components can be made two to three days in advance and refrigerated; even the dough can be pressed into the pans and frozen. However, assemble the pies only prior to baking.


Crust

Apple Filling

Yields enough for two pies.

Yields enough for two pies.

INGREDIENTS

INGREDIENTS

1½ sticks margarine, at room temperature

8 Cortland apples, cut into small cubes

⅓ cup sugar

⅓ cup sugar

1 egg

⅓ cup light brown sugar

½ tsp. vanilla extract

1 tsp. cinnamon

2 packed cups flour

2 T. lemon juice

DIRECTIONS

DIRECTIONS

In a bowl, mix everything together by hand. Divide dough in two. Press each part firmly into a pie pan. (I rolled each part of the dough into a long log and then pressed it into the bottom of the pan and halfway up the sides.)

In a large saucepan or pot, mix all of the ingredients. Cover and place over a medium flame and saute for approximately 25 minutes, stirring several times, until apples become a little soft.

Crumble Yields enough for two pies.

INGREDIENTS 2¼ cups flour 1¼ cups sugar 1 T. baking powder ¾ tsp. salt 1¼ sticks margarine ½ cup chopped pecans (not glazed)

DIRECTIONS Mix the first five ingredients until crumbly. Mix in the pecans.

Assembly 1. Preheat oven to 350°. Press each part of the divided dough into a pan. 2. Divide the apple filling between the two pies; spread over crust. 3. Press half of the crumble onto each of the pies. It will look quite dense, but it’ll shrink a bit as it bakes. 4. Bake for 50 minutes. Allow to cool before very carefully removing from the pans. You may want to keep it on the bottom support of the pan. 5. Top with confectioners’ sugar if desired. Best when used the day you bake them.

Apple and Blueberry Turnovers These puff pastry turnovers are light and flaky little puffs that are filled with delicious, fresh fruit fillings. The fresh fruits lend a burst of flavor that really wins over their overly sweet store-bought counterparts. They’re super easy to make, since you start with storebought frozen dough. As an added bonus, they freeze beautifully raw, and you can pop them out of the freezer to bake any time you like!

154 / THE MONSEY VIEW


Blueberry Filling INGREDIENTS 1 package puff pastry squares, 36 pack

INGREDIENTS 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries ½ cup sugar 1 T. lemon juice 1 T. cornstarch 1 egg, beaten, for egg wash

Apple Filling INGREDIENTS 2 Cortland apples, diced very small ¼ cup sugar ½ tsp. cinnamon 1 tsp. lemon juice 1 T. flour 1 egg, beaten, for egg wash

DIRECTIONS 1. Preheat oven to 375°. Mix together the apples, sugar, cinnamon, lemon juice and flour. 2. Work with one piece of dough at a time. Place a spoonful of filling in the center of the dough. Pinch the edges tightly together and place on a lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough squares. 3. Brush with egg wash. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until lightly golden and puffed up. Top generously with confectioners’ sugar or drizzle with lemon glaze.

DIRECTIONS 1. In a small saucepan, stir together blueberries, sugar, lemon juice and cornstarch. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Continue cooking for approximately 2 minutes until the sauce thickens. Remove from heat and cool completely. 2. Place a spoonful of the filling in the center of each dough. Pinch the edges tightly together and place on a lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough squares. 3. Brush with egg wash. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until lightly golden and puffed up. Top generously with confectioners’ sugar or drizzle with lemon glaze.

Lemon Glaze (optional) INGREDIENTS ½ cup confectioners’ sugar 1 T. lemon juice

DIRECTIONS Whisk together until smooth. Drizzle over cooled turnovers.

Carrot Muffins Yields approximately 45 muffins. These muffins are just the right size, and they are moist and flavorful. This recipe yields plenty, but the muffins freeze well and are great to have on hand to upgrade any meal or special occasion.

156 / THE MONSEY VIEW


Muffins

Frosting

INGREDIENTS

INGREDIENTS

3 medium-sized loose carrots, grated

1 carton whip

4 eggs

⅔ package instant vanilla pudding

2 cups sugar

2 heaping T. cornstarch

1½ cups oil ¾ cup orange juice 1 T. baking soda 1 T. cinnamon

The cornstarch prevents the frosting from wilting at room temperature.

Chopped walnuts for sprinkling

DIRECTIONS 1. Beat the whip until stiff. Fold in the pudding and cornstarch.

1 tsp. salt 3 cups flour 1 tsp. vanilla sugar

DIRECTIONS 1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line muffin tins (I use disposable tins) with cupcake papers.

2. Pour the frosting into a piping bag or Ziploc bag fitted with a large star tip. Squirt a little bit of frosting onto each muffin and top with a light sprinkling of chopped walnuts.

2. In the bowl of a mixer, beat the eggs, sugar and oil well. Add the orange juice and then the dry ingredients. Then fold in the grated carrots. 3. Fill cupcake papers three-quarters full. 4. Bake for approximately 24 to 25 minutes. Do not overfill your oven. If you have two ovens, you can bake them all at once between the two. (Remember that the kashrus status will depend on which oven you used, unless you ask a rav about burning out your oven/s in advance.) If you have only one oven, I suggest you bake as many as fit on one shelf and refrigerate the rest, which you should bake right after the first batch comes out of the oven. 5. Allow muffins to cool completely before topping.

There’s no such thing as picture-perfect! Remember those days you stayed awake until the wee hours of the morning to put the finishing touches on your mishloach manos masterpieces? (No? Me neither...) Okay, okay‌ In all honesty, we as a society (the younger version of myself included) tend to get carried away with mishloach manos prep, striving for perfect food and perfect presentations. We all want our edibles to look just like the mouthwatering photos we see in advertisements. But oftentimes, despite our best

February 26, 2020 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 165 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


efforts, they don’t. And there’s good reason for that. The food advertisement industry has many secrets for making food look outrageously delicious — but many of those tricks actually make the food completely inedible! Let’s rip off the mask of food photography and take comfort in the fact that even if our best efforts fall flat when compared to “perfect” adverts, our gifted foods will be the real — and edible! — deal. Disclaimer: Though these tricks (and other ones) are used by some food photographers, there are many other food photographers who aim to capture only real foods with real presentation when possible. Please note that The Monsey View prides itself on presenting real, unaltered foods in the weekly food section.

In the spirit of Purim, let’s begin with spirits and their less lively kin.

Ever seen those enticingly bubbly champagnes? The secret here is Alka Seltzer tablets! And, um, soy sauce mixed with water, of course. For why should anyone waste a perfectly good (and expensive!) drink when they can get away with a look-alike?

This foamy, frothy beer looks awfully awesome, doesn’t it? Dish soap! It’s added to the cup before the beer is poured, allowing it to bubble upward in a rich lather.

166 / THE MONSEY VIEW / February 26, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


Those little bubbles around the edges of an invitingly warm cup of coffee? Yup, dish soap again, added gently to the surface with a dropper.

There’s nothing like a cold drink on a hot summer day, the droplets of condensation on the outside of the glass testament to the chilled beverage within… But the heat of the photographer’s lights will warm any drink up pronto, so to fake that chilled look, a glycerin mix is spritzed using a spray bottle. The droplets stay put, and the effect is easily achieved. This trick is often used to make fruit look dewy as well.

February 26, 2020 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 167 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


Let’s move on to meats.

Plump and perfect, those succulent cuts of meat just look so appetizing! You’d probably not want to eat them, though… When cooked, meat shrinks, losing some of its oomph and emphasizing any unwanted textures. Sometimes photographers will char the top of a slice of meat with a blowtorch, leaving the insides undone. To make the meat shine, it’ll either be bathed in oil or at least smeared with it, and shoe polish can darken up meat that is too red.

When it comes to poultry, the secret to a perfectly golden skin is to paint it! Furniture stain on the raw bird is popular for such a shot…

Gorgeous grill marks make every tummy rumble, don’t they? Unless they’re actually drawn on with a Sharpie… A more savory method of adding grill marks is to char meat with a charcoal starter.

Every wonder why your burgers seem so… flat? Well, they’d also have added height if you were to put cardboard between the layers! (And toothpicks, to hold all the ingredients in place.)

To make a dish appear piping hot, food photographers will place dry ice, soaked and heated cotton balls, or burning incense sticks behind a dish.

No food is spared. Even decadent desserts and fabulous fruits are treated to “enhancements...”

Though it’s common knowledge that mashed potatoes are sometimes used as a stand-in for ice cream, shortening mixed with powdered sugar is another popular no-melt ice cream option.

170 / THE MONSEY VIEW / February 26, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


Whipped cream? Shaving cream! (It doesn’t melt under hot lights.)

Nobody likes soggy cereal… Especially food photographers! To avoid this, a base layer of wiggly Jello is topped with glue, and then pieces of cereal are delicately positioned on top of the glue. Bon appetit!

Oh, those vineyard-fresh grapes… Or are they dusty with talcum powder?! Deodorant works, too. And to add shine, hairspray!

For strawberries that look less than 100% rosy, as strawberries are often wont to, red lipstick is used to color in the gaps and enhance their color.

For uber-perfect pancakes that won’t absorb the luscious syrup motor oil running down them, just give them a good spray with Scotchgard. Dig in!

Super-stretchy gooey cheese might better be better off termed “superstretchy gluey cheese”! To get the perfect “cheese pull,” as it’s called, glue is (or was, according to those who say this is an outdated method), mixed together with melted mozzarella and painted on the pre-cut edges of the slice, exaggerating that cheesy stretch when lifted. And, oh, to keep the rest of the pie in place while pulling the slice away? Nails, straight through the pie and into the table.

For faux melted chocolate: Cocoa powder, brown food coloring, and… Borax???

We live in a world in which morning dawns and the tide ebbs and flows. In which grass is green and beaches sandy-colored. In which rivers rush and mighty rocks stand still. And there, behind the facade of science, of the rules of nature, is the hidden Hand of Hashem. In fact, the more we study the workings of teva, the more we see His imprint in His wondrous works. Nothing is a clearer example of this than the Purim story, where miracles are deftly woven into an illusion of happenstance, where seemingly natural occurrences lead to miraculous salvation. So it really is no wonder at all that dotting the landscape that is nature are gentle hints and surprising shocks of the supernatural. And although some of these mysterious phenomena can be explained with a whole load of scientific jargon, we know that the natural and the supernatural, the wonder and the wondrous… they’re all the work of the greatest Artist of all. Ein tziyer k’Elokeinu.

Crooked Forest POLAND Nestled in a protected Polish forest is a grove of pine trees that make up the Krzywy Las, or Crooked Forest. How these trees became so perfectly deformed — each bending north in a distinct arch before continuing its vertical ascent — is a mystery indeed. It was in the 1930s that these pine trees were planted, and the hypotheses as to how their hook-shaped trunks came about vary; most go with the theory that they were purposely damaged as young saplings by farmers; others that a snowstorm knocked them out of shape. The motive brings up another series of guesses, among them speculation that they were intentionally disfigured to enable the creation of naturally formed timber for luxury furniture.

Stone-still is a paradoxical description in this playa, this dried-up lake with its hexagonal mudcrack polygons that form when the ground is completely dry. Their weight notwithstanding (some of the bigger rocks in the playa weigh as much as 700 pounds!), these great, big rocks occasionally sail on ground, as proven by the “racetrack” trails they leave behind — imprints upon the ground that have been as long as 1,500 feet! Amazingly, the land is flat, so inclines can’t be to blame for this fascinating phenomenon. So baffled by the mystery (Is it a small amount of water that makes the surface slick? Hurricane winds? Thick sheets of ice? Dust devils?) were scientists, that in 2011 they set up “the most boring experiment ever.” The experiment was named so because they knew they may be in for a long wait; stones usually stay at rest for a decade or more before being upended from their inertia. Scientists brought to the playa rocks fitted with custom, motion-activated GPS units and installed a weather station capable of measuring wind gusts. After only two years, they got lucky and were finally able to observe their subjects in motion! It needs a rare combination, was the conclusion: the playa to fill with some water, and the pond to freeze and then begin to melt during periods of light wind. These circumstances form floating ice panels upon which the stones can glide. The discovery, though, still doesn’t make the fact any less marvelous.

Bermuda Triangle NORTH ATLANTIC OCEAN Even though the mystery you grew up on has already been tamed to a great degree, the Bermuda Triangle is still a legend. In years gone by, a great number of aircraft and ships were said to have seen their demise or disappearance over this loosely defined region in the area between Florida and Puerto Rico and the Island of Bermuda. More current research has dismissed the paranormal activities of this area, chalking up much of the mysteries to inaccurately reported or embellished incidents. Today the “Devil’s Triangle,” as it is also known as, is actually a heavily traveled area frequented by cargo and cruise ships, and also flown over by both commercial and private aircraft. Another similar legend is the Michigan Triangle, a place of deadly mysteries where boats set out to sail on the placid waters and suddenly disappeared. In 1891, the Thomas Hume all but vanished on a clear day (some of the wreckage was discovered over a century later in 2006); in 1921, a ghost boat drifted back without passengers; in 1937, a captain disappeared from aboard a ship; and in 1950, an airplane vanished while flying over Lake Michigan. The Sargasso Sea is another liquid area with many peculiarities and shipwrecks — a mystery even older than the Bermuda Triangle.

Stonehenge WILTSHIRE, ENGLAND One of UK’s most famous landmarks and cultural icons, Stonehenge has been the cause of much speculation and debate. Theories abound, but no one is quite sure how this circular formation of stones came to sit on the Salisbury Plain. What is almost undisputed is that the 13-foot-high stones, each one weighing in at about 25 tons, are quite impossible to manually move due to their massive size. While archaeologists have a pretty fair idea of when they seem to have been constructed (in three phases, the first one being a little over five thousand years ago), aside from the fact that there was a burial site there at one point, little else is known, and many questions remain: Who constructed this monument, and what was the purpose? And then the unthinkable: How were these massive pillars hauled at a time when manual labor reigned? One famous aspect of Stonehenge is its perfect framing of sunrise at summer solstice and sunset at winter solstice, but its other physical attributes just don’t point enough to its being there for astronomical observation alone.

Water appears to be running uphill in Moncton

A car smoothly glides down this Canadian hill. The driver eases on the gas pedal, and suddenly, the car starts rolling backward — uphill! Does the top of this hill have some super magnetic powers? How can it completely defy Newton’s first discovery? While it is highly disconcerting to watch a collection of water slowly flow uphill, there’s actually less mystery and more illusion involved in this phenomenon, which exists in many areas on the globe. Gravity hills are real-life optical illusions, with an uphill slope set against another steeper one in the background that makes your brain see the road you are traveling as being either level or downhill. The more dramatic displays of this fascinating phenomenon draw many visitors, but there are lesser-known hills closer by, one actually being in Franklin Lakes, NJ, and another one in Jackson, NJ. But don’t try anything dangerous, because there are cops on the lookout for drivers too curious to drive safely on these busy ramps and roads, and attempts usually cost a handful of dollars and points before anything of interest is observed.

Al Naslaa Rock Formation TAYMA, SAUDIA ARABIA

188 / THE MONSEY VIEW

This megalith is — quite literally — a huge mystery. The Al Naslaa Rock, standing solid on two pedestals a fraction of the size of the weight they carry, has a laser-like, perfect split right in the center with flat faces that are said to be completely natural. How did this happen? When did this happen? How long will this rock keep its precarious balance? There are some theories, of course, most running along the lines of a shifting ground, fault lines, or volcanic shifts, but since its discovery in 1883 in the Tayma Oasis in Saudia Arabia, no one was able to crack the mystery of the crack.

Australia’s Pink Lake

Lake Retba

The Meeting of Waters in Brazil

190 / THE MONSEY VIEW

This spectacular Liquid Rainbow, or “River of Five Colors,” is fascinating to observe from the end of July until November. Red takes dominance, but the water that flows also has sections that are yellow, green, blue and black. What colors the water are actually plants of different colors on the riverbed. Similarly, there are other beautifully colored bodies of water, such as Lake Retba off the Peninsula of Senegal in northwest Africa, and Pink Lake in Western Australia, both which are colored by the pink bacteria and the red pigmented algae that grow when the water’s salt content reaches a high point. There are also some amazing confluences between two differently colored rivers that make for a fascinating sight, such as the Meeting of Waters in Brazil where the dark Rio Negro converges with the pale sandy-colored Amazon River. What’s astounding to see is that they don’t mix, just flow side by side.


Vinicunca Rainbow Mountain PERU

Another vivid multi-color beauty lies in the Peruvian section of the Andes, where mountains with stripes in fourteen different colors — ranging from turquoise to lavender to burgundy to pink to gold, and then some — stand tall — very tall. The different minerals the mountain is made up of are what make up this aesthetic wonder. And while it may be true that “you can’t have the rainbow without the rain,” here the rainbow loses its grandeur with wet weather, and it’s best visited under blue skies, prime time being August.

It was one of those weeks, and if I thought so at the beginning of the week, the end of the week proved it even more. It started on Shabbos. “Ma! Come quick! Avi needs you!” Chana Sara gasped, her skirt getting tangled around her ankles as she tore up the stairs. “There’s water gushing all over the floor in the basement! Avi says he thinks a pipe burst in the boiler room, and he wants to know how to turn off the water!” Was I supposed to know? Menachem had gone to shul, so there was no asking the head of the household, and no one seemed to have a clue. Sure, I vaguely remembered him showing me the shut-off valve once upon a time when we moved into the house nearly thirty years ago, but as to where it was actually located, I had no idea now, three decades later. I ran downstairs to find water spreading all over the floor and into the various rooms adjacent to the boiler room. “I am going to run to the neighbors,” Chana Sara said as we all stood helplessly watching the water surge onto the floor and spread through every room. “Maybe they’ll know what to do.” It was a good idea. We do have the best neighbors, and someone would certainly be around who could help us — or so I hoped. Yudi from across the street arrived at the scene. “Let me see if I can find where the water is coming from,” he said, “see” being the critical word here since it was completely dark in the boiler room.

196 / THE MONSEY VIEW


“I can’t make out a thing,” Yudi admitted. We could hear the water sloshing around his feet with each step he took well before we could see him emerging from the depths of the room. “I’m going to get Mr. Kim,” I said. The Kims lived two doors down. It was very convenient to have them as neighbors; they had willingly helped us out on Shabbos and yom tov on more than one occasion over the years. This meant they knew enough by now to understand that I needed their help without my having to directly ask for it. The light they switched on in the boiler room proved what I had feared: It was the hot water heater, and it had an everwidening hole at the bottom of the tank. Once the light was on, Yudi found the valve and shut it off so that the tank would not keep refilling, which on the one hand would stop the flow (once the 50 gallons of water had finished spilling out onto our floor), but we were now without hot water. It was hard to enjoy the rest of Shabbos with water lapping around the basement floor, soaking the carpets and sending all kinds of detritus floating down the hallway from the boiler room, but we all made a determined effort. After Shabbos, Menachem came home from shul looking stressed. Right after Havdalah, he put in a call to the plumber who recommended that we also call a water damage cleanup and restoration specialist as soon as possible. By the next day, much of the Sheetrock in the basement had been knocked out so the walls could dry out, the carpets had been marked as a complete loss and removed, and there were four huge fans blasting away to dry things out to prevent mold from set-

come over to help with setting up the sheva brachos, had made. “The table setting is so elegant,” she’d commented, looking over the blue-and-gold themed tableware I had selected, right down to the color-coordinated blue-and-gold leafpatterned napkins she was arranging into each glass. “I got it all at Amazing Savings,” I told her. “Wow,” she said. “You have good taste!” And then she added, “I still can’t believe what you’re telling me about your basement.” “Seeing is believing,” I said. “Have a look, and then you’ll be able to commiserate with me firsthand.” “Brachy?” she called up from the basement a few moments later. “I thought you said you got rid of all the water.” “We did,” I said. “That is what all the fans are doing now — drying up any of the remaining damp patches.” “Damp patches?” she said. “I wouldn’t call what I see ‘damp patches.’ There’s a huge puddle of water on the floor.” “Not again,” said Menachem, beating all of us down the stairs. This would be the third time in a week that the drain line of our air conditioner system was giving us trouble. The coils had even been vacuumed the previous week, but with little apparent success. “Clogged again?” I asked Menachem when he was back upstairs. He looked harassed. “We’ll be hosting thirty people in four hours from now,” Menachem said, after frantically dialing our HVAC service technicians. Now he looked more than a little harassed. “The temperature outside is over 90 degrees, and we have no air conditioning! What do you mean you can’t come until tomorrow after-

The plumber had come and gone, and we were now the proud owners of one new 50-gallon hot water heater “I can’t believe what the basement looks like,” Menachem said, clearly traumatized after watching the workers remove our carpets and demolish most of the walls of the basement we had finished not that long ago. “The carpet is ruined. The walls are gone. The plumber’s bill is just the tip of the iceberg.” It was true. The plumber had cost nearly $2,000, and now with the demolition and restoration, the bill was only going to get higher. “Relax,” I said to Menachem, who was looking pretty uptight with all that was going on. “Everything is under control.” I knew he had not slept well since Shabbos, and I was worried about him. Especially since we would be making sheva brachos that night for our neighbor’s son, who also happened to be our mechutanim. This only compounded the strain we were all feeling. The only one showing it, though, was Menachem, especially after the discovery our neighbor Shana, who’d

noon?” Unable to force the secretary to change her mind on the scheduling she had arranged, Menachem hung up the phone looking beat. “It’s okay,” I said, worried about Menachem, who looked wiped. Not only was this whole thing affecting his sleep, but he hadn’t had any appetite either since Shabbos. “Take it easy, Menachem. We have no air conditioning, but we have good neighbors. I am sure someone would be able to lend us a window unit.” “I‘ll find a neighbor with an air conditioning unit,” Shana volunteered. “One should be easy enough to remove from a window for just a few hours.” “But it’s so hot,” Chana Sara said. “Who would want to give us their air conditioner on a day like this?” “We have the best neighbors,” I said. “Especially if we start with asking the neighbors who are coming tonight,” Menachem suggested. “They’ll be a lot more willing to let us borrow one for the evening rather than coming to a house with no air conditioning at all.” “And we can also use the fans from the basement,” suggested Chana Sara. “Just for a few hours during sheva brachos. Maybe in the kitchen, at least, if it gets too hot.” “Those fans are doing a very important job. Besides, they’re way too big,” Menachem said. “But I’m sure we’ll be able to find a neighbor who can spare some fans.” And so it was. The neighbors came through with flying colors — though the fans and the air conditioning unit did not stand a chance against the heat generated by the weather and compounded by the sheer number of bodies in the room. The simcha was coming along beautifully, though I was still worried about Menachem who I noticed was only picking at his food. I was also worried that he might be coming down with a cold, given that he kept wiping his nose on the gold-and-blue leafed napkin at his place. Two speeches later, Menachem got up to bring the kos to Shana’s husband who was going to lead bentching. “Ta,” Avi said, putting his hand on his father’s arm. “Are you feeling okay?” “I’m pretty exhausted,” Menachem replied. “Nothing more, although I am kind of looking forward to this night being over so I can finally get some sleep. But other than —” “You look terrible,” Avi said. “I think you should come into the kitchen and sit down.” “What’s wrong?” I asked, turning away from the dessert plates I was clearing from the table. Then I saw what was wrong. “You’re right,” I said. “His color is definitely off.” “It is?” If Menachem hadn’t looked good before, now he looked decidedly ill. “I don’t really feel sick. I


mean, it is hot in here, and I haven’t been feeling totally fine, but you really think I look ill?” I nodded mutely. “He looks blue,” said Shana as soon as she came into the kitchen. Menachem had left the table so as not to cause a stir. “Are you okay?” Menachem nodded, studying the tips of his fingers, which had taken on a decidedly grayish-blue tinge. “Are you sure his breathing is okay?” Shana pressed. “Maybe he’s dehydrated?” “He hasn’t been feeling well all week,” I said. Baruch Hashem for a next-door neighbor who was a Hatzolah volunteer. Chana Sara ran over to get him. “I just hope he’s home,” said Shana, “and not out on another Hatzolah call.” “I’m here, I’m here!” said Mr. Aronson, pushing his way into the kitchen. Avi, in the meantime, went back into the dining room to cover the bentching and sheva brachos. “I don’t know,” said Mr. Aronson after the examination. “He seems to be fine. His vitals are good, other than his blood pressure, which is a little high. The EKG we ran is per-

fect, but his color is really off.” “Oy,” said one of the Hatzolah volunteers who’d been summoned, trying to lighten the mood, “I sure hope it wasn’t the speeches that did him in.” “I’ve never seen anything like this before,” Mr. Aronson said as he and the rest of the Hatzolah volunteers were researching any possible cause for the strange blue tinge on Menachem’s face and hands. Oxygen deprivation? Drug interaction? History? There was nothing that anyone came up with that even remotely made sense. “I don’t know,” said the last two volunteers who’d shown up to add their two cents to the mix. “Whatever this is, it’s not a classic case of anything we can find. It’s probably nothing, but what I do know is that we would feel a lot better if you went to the hospital to check this out. Better safe than sorry, and we will sleep better tonight knowing you did that.” “Go, Brachy,” said Shana. “Chana Sara, Avi and I will take care of cleanup. Everyone is leaving soon anyway, as soon as they finish Maariv.” And so, hearts in our mouth, we climbed into the ambulance, its sirens screaming, and took off for the

hospital. One look at Menachem’s grayblue features, and he was taken right in and given a whole battery of tests, all done stat. Soon the EKG came back as normal once again, as did every other test. The lab results were also normal — except for a small potassium deficiency. “There is nothing definitive that we can find,” said the puzzled emergency room doctor several hours later as he handed us our discharge papers. “I’ll eat more bananas,” Menachem joked weakly as we made our way home. We were relieved, but felt that the ax could still fall any minute. The week went by with everyone walking on eggshells around Menachem. His coloring was back to normal, and he was doing his best to take it easy and get lots of rest. At the same time, everyone in the family, not to mention the entire neighborhood, was trying not to show how worried they were. Having an undiagnosed problem is frightening. “Mrs. Levinson sent over some banana muffins,” said Chana Sara brightly, when Menachem walked into the kitchen after shul one morn-

“We’ll be hosting thirty people in four hours from now!” Menachem said, after frantically dialing our HVAC service technicians.

ing. “That’s really nice of her,” I said, appreciating our neighbors anew. She’d obviously heard about Menachem’s potassium deficiency, the only thing we’d been able to peg the entire weird episode on, though the pieces were not at all fitting together in any way. “You can take them to work,” Chana Sara said. “And I made banana pancakes for breakfast!” “Thanks,” said Menachem, noticing the sliced bananas on the side. Then there was also Chana Sara’s banana smoothie, and packed in his lunch bag, another banana. Clearly, the potassium deficiency was going to be a thing of the past in no time. By the time Shabbos rolled around again, we were just grateful that the rest of the week had been peaceful. No new water leaks, and the air conditioner and hot water heater were as good as new. We had yet to find a contractor to fix the mess in the basement, but I could see that Menachem was trying not to let that bother him, for all of our sakes. Still, there was that gray-blue shadow hanging over all of us; we had no idea what had caused Menachem’s episode. A visit with his primary care physician was scheduled for the upcoming week. The moment Shabbos was over, the phone rang. “Shabbos just ended!” I said, not-

One look at Menachem’s gray-blue features, and he was taken right in and given a whole battery of tests, all done stat. ing the ringing phone with some trepidation. Who was calling us the second Shabbos was over? Was it good news or bad? Shana’s voice burst over the line. “You are not going to believe this.” “Where are you?” I asked. “I went to Yosef and Aviva’s for Shabbos,” Shana said. “That is so nice,” I said. “How is the baby and how —” “Brachy! Just listen to me. You are not going to believe this, but they had the same napkins as you had at the sheva brachos.” “Wow,” I said, trying to generate the appropriate enthusiasm for having the same taste in paper goods as Shana’s daughter-in-law. “Brachy,” Shana went on, “Yosef’s hands turned blue just like Menachem’s did!” “What?” I gasped. Yosef was just a young boy in his twenties. “Is he okay? What happened? Did you have to go to the hospital?” “No! No!” Shana was laughing. Laughing? “It was during shalosh seu-

dos, and he wiped his hands on the same blue-and-gold leaf napkins you used at the sheva brachos. It was the napkin all along. It leaks color! There is nothing wrong with Menachem!” Nothing wrong with Menachem! I could not believe my ears. All that worrying, the whole terrible, awful, overwhelming week — the worry, the not knowing. Could it be true that all along it was the dye in the napkins? Yet it all made sense. The tests had come back with nothing, nothing at all, because there was nothing wrong with my husband. Suddenly, all of our problems were wiped away. It did not matter that my basement was still a wreck. It did not matter that we still had not found a contractor. It did not matter that huge bills were piling up — from the hot water heater, the plumber, the water damage restoration company, the air conditioner repair, the new carpet and the restoration of the Sheetrock. Nothing mattered, other than the fact that I had the most wonderful neighbors who were looking out for me even when they went away. And best of all, my husband was just fine — no longer feeling blue — as all of our troubles had been wiped away in one stroke by a single patterned paper napkin placed in the right hands, at the right time, in the right place, by the right neighbor.

A Watered-Down Week We’re on to the refreshing part of the eight-week cycle. We’ll lighten up on the load of Pesach cleaning this week, water down our intense focus — and… I think I’m all out of puns. Even as we recognize that the upcoming week’s true priority is Purim prep, we aren’t giving up on the countdown. One of the lovely aspects of a calendar is that we get to prepare for the expected. And since we have wisely counted on Purim prep week showing up right about here, the schedule has been planned accordingly. And so, while the priority this week will certainly be Purim, I know you can find those few minutes daily to stay on the countdown track.

Sunday

We’ll start with your bathrooms — once again an area that isn’t intended for food consumption or storage. These rooms can still benefit from a deep cleaning, though, and now is as good a time as any to cross “bathrooms” off your Pesach-cleaning list. March 1

Today’s official focus will be the vanity cabinet under the sink. If you’ve got multiple bathrooms, you’ll need to set the timer for each one individually. Remember: The goal is not to wipe over and replace the same items year after year. If the products there weren’t used, then the garbage can is probably a better place for it.

206 / THE MONSEY VIEW / February 26, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


Monday March 2

The task assigned for today will be the medicine chest. But if there is a cupboard or shelf in this room, let’s pay attention to that as well.

To organize your medicine chest: • Check expiration dates and dispose of products accordingly. • Toss leftover partial doses of old medicine. • Get rid of any items you don’t or won’t use. • Consolidate any doubles that have already been opened.

Tuesday

Let’s designate today for Purim preparation and allow the washing machine to do the heavy Pesach cleaning — by washing all shower curtains, decorative bathroom towels and bath rugs. (Do give those rugs their own designated load. They deserve it.) March 3

Bonus bathroom tip: Get hooks for the back of the bathroom doors. Instead of transferring bath towels to the hamper (where they cramp space and possibly cause a musty odor), or even throwing them right into the wash (which is entirely unnecessary), a simple and smart solution would be to hang each family member’s towel or bathrobe on a hook on the back of the bathroom door to dry.

Wednesday

Let’s wash up the tiled bathroom walls. Get your kids to help you with this task, and make it a fun competition. Keep in mind that ammonia or bleach-based products tend to strip the grout and might even discolor or damage your tiles. Your ideal spray would be an inexpensive, homemade vinegar solution. March 4

Magic Glass and Tile Solution 2½ cups white vinegar

1½ cups Dawn liquid dishwashing detergent

1. Microwave the vinegar for two minutes for optimal potency, carefully add both ingredients to a goodquality spray bottle, and shake well to combine. 2. Squirt onto the tiles, glass shower doors and mirrors, wipe away with a cotton or microfiber cloth, and watch the magic happen! (For heavier scum buildup on shower walls and doors, you might want to let the solution sit for a bit longer before wiping it away.)

Bite-Size

PESACH CLEANING

Thursday

Today we look at the laundry room shelves or cabinets. These often house a hodgepodge of bottles of detergents that are either too old, never worked well enough, or perhaps were “enhanced” with scents you really despise. March 5

Here’s my question to you: Why are you holding on to those bottles? Ownership of clutter does not need to be a permanent condition. Let those items go! If the shelves will be limited to the items you actually use, the resulting spaciousness will allow ample room for an extra bottle or two of the products you do employ. Bonus year-round laundry room tip: Before each towel or shmatte load, dampen a small hand towel or rag and wash around the top and front of your washing machine. Maintenance is the simplest and most effective trick to having a clean home.

WEEK 5

OF THE EIGHT-WEEK COUNTDOWN

Friday

Back in the laundry room, today’s focus is on exteriors only. Wash the front of the cabinets, washing machine, dryer, and let’s make quick work of the walls. Depending on the size of your room, this can likely be done in just fifteen minutes. Use a timer and prove to yourself just how capable you are! March 6

Sunday March 8

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

Life at a Glance MENACHEM, age 24: works as a retail salesperson 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: Menachem and Leah draw up their next budget. Things are slowly falling into place, and they feel the stress lifting off of them.

Menachem:

Leah:

I gave notice at my morning job today. My afternoon boss wants me to come in fulltime, and with the pay he offered me, I’ll end up working a lot less hours for almost the same salary. I’m excited to start my workday at 10 instead of at 7; it means I can daven and learn like a mentch and still spend some time with my family before I leave for work. I’ll end up coming home with $185 less per month, but working 72 hours less than I did until now. And I’ll also be eligible for weekly bonuses based on performance, so I think it’ll even out. It just seems like the right move. I took the questionnaire the coach gave me, and I’m feeling pretty good about it. There’s a lot I’ve learned about the retail line I’m in, and I’ve got lots of ideas on how to make things run smoother on the job. I think I’m good at what I’m doing — all that fancy sales training is being put to good use now!

Good news about this month’s budget: It looks like I’ll be bringing home more than the regular $1,500. We’ll definitely be able to fill up our emergency fund, probably pay off the next card in the snowball (yay!), and maybe even take the kids to the aquarium during winter break! Hooray! Our coach gave us a questionnaire about our performance in the workplace, and even though it is mostly geared for employees, I was able to find some tips for improving as a business owner. I keep imagining myself as the employee — would a boss be pleased with my performance? What can I do to earn a bonus this month? How can I add more value to the company? It’s changed my perspective, and I feel like I’m making headway. I was able to take on more jobs than usual, which is great for the monthly income. Plus, it’s the best feeling in the world to create these beautiful dresses and know that my clients look and feel so beautiful at their simchos!

Coach’s Take Here’s a simple questionnaire that can help you figure out how to maximize your value as an employee.

From a scale of 1 to 10 — with 1 representing your rating as “employee of the year” and 10 being terrible — rate yourself as an employee.

Showing up:

Skill and productivity: How would you rate yourself at the job you actually do? Why do you think you’re good at it? _________________________________________________________________

_____ Do you show up on time?

________________________________________________________________

_____ Do you leave only after the agreedupon time?

Is there anything you can do to raise the rating you gave yourself?

_____ Do you take vacation days or sick days more often than necessary?

_________________________________________________________________

_____ How often do you break, and for how long?

________________________________________________________________

_____ Are you back on time after lunch?

Do you do only what’s expected of you, or do you go above and beyond to make yourself useful?

_____ Do you take smoking breaks?

_________________________________________________________________

_____ Are you productive all day, or do you burn time chatting at the water cooler?

Attitude: _____ Do you come across as positive, ready and excited to be there? _____ Are you a team player? _____ If you work with customers, do you greet them with a smile, or do they secretly annoy you?

________________________________________________________________ When you have an idea or see opportunities to make things run more smoothly in the business, do you jump into it? Run it by your boss? Or just skip over it because “they don’t pay me enough for that”? _________________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________ If you were your own boss, what would you want to see yourself doing better? How can you make yourself more valuable as an employee? _________________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________

Rate yourself honestly, and see what else you can do to be the best you possibly can at your job. If you feel like you’re already there, ask your boss for a performance review. Bring up three reasons you feel like you’re an above-average employee, and list three things you’ve accomplished that brought the company results. Ask your boss what else you can do to qualify for a raise. Let’s see what happens!

216 / THE MONSEY VIEW / February 26, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

Accomplishments: List three traits you’ve improved on or accomplishments you’ve scored within the past six months on the job. _________________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________

Our eyes deceive us. Those little purveyors of sight are fascinating creations that interpret the world around us by transmitting data to our brains. But when not all information is readily identifiable, our cerebral matter will immediately fill in the blanks. And with our brains being so gullible, what you see is not always what you get. Enter: optical illusions.

Are You Mocking Me? The word “illusion” comes from the latin word illudere, which means “to mock,” and indeed, we recognize we are being made fools of when shown an illusion. Which begs the question: Why are we so eager to be mocked? Perhaps we relish the idea that life can surprise us in the simplest and most complex ways. It is also reassuring to realize that there are mysteries that leave even philosophers and psychologists befuddled.

Optical Illusions Optical illusions vary, but their common thread is that they introduce us to images that disagree with reality. We feel pleasantly disoriented as we realize that what we thought we were seeing is completely different from what is real. So then, how do we know what’s real? The answer is, we don’t. Of course, there are indisputable truths, but many “facts” are relative. We all are aware of positive and negative, hot and cold, and darkness and light — but even those concepts are open to our interpretation.

A. Coming out of a dark room, a mildly lit room appears bright. Coming in from sunshine, that same room seems dark. That phenomenon explains the Checker Shadow illusion. Note how squares A and B are actually the same color. Your expectation and automatic mental adjustment are playing tricks on you.

By: Tziri Hershkovitz

B. The Gradient Sun illusion is doing the same thing. Moving your eyes closer and farther away from the page alters the white’s brightness — because your eyes “adjust,” much like they would when you come in from the bright outdoors. Obviously, the page isn’t changing colors, but your brain is capable of doing that for you.

C. It’s doing the same with the bowl of red strawberries — which don’t have a single red pixel in the image. But look at it long enough, and you’ll see the red. Why? In the previous illusion, your brain was providing the necessary lighting adjustment; now, it is doing a “color balance.”

D. The Kanizsa Triangle is a perfect example of the brain filling in for something that is not there. That triangle you see doesn’t exist. The image is actually of three “Pac-Men” and three v’s, cleverly aligned. That white overlapping triangle is a figment of your imagination!

E. The Scintillating Grid illusion has had philosophers disagreeing on whether it’s an illusion or full-on hallucination. Their conclusion that we are, in fact, not hallucinating doesn’t detract from our fascination in seeing what isn’t there. The black dots we see at all corners disappear as soon as we look closely. Scientists are still debating as to which neural process is responsible for this trick, but even without fully understanding the intricacies of our brains, we can still be enthralled by this illusion.

G.

F. Akiyoshi Kitaoka, a professor in Japan, created a multitude of “moving” images with geometric shapes by utilizing his understanding of visual illusions, 3D art and many other facets involving our perceptual gullibility.

222 / THE MONSEY VIEW / February 26, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

The headache-inducing Square-Circle-Spiral illusion employs the same “intertwining” principle to confuse our brains into seeing spiraling circles when, in fact, a simple finger tracing will reveal that each concentric circle stands alone.


H. The Cafe Wall, a variation of the Zollner illusion, has evenly spaced lines that convincingly appear to be slanted. Some artsy architects have chosen to design buildings with their windows slightly off center, giving a similar, dizzying illusion.

I. Among my favorite illusions is the Ponzo illusion. The three cars in the image are the exact same size (grab a ruler if you doubt me!). The top one just seems oversized because our brains tell us that at that distance, it would need to be smaller.

Life Lessons

Personal Bias

Illusions also explain why circumstances in life seem more difficult or frightening when we are alone, in the dark or under stress. The exact same situation is lightened, literally, in the light of day and among supportive friends.

Reb Shmuel bar Nachmani says in Gemara (Brachos 55b), “We do not see things as they are. We see things as we are.” With so much of reality open to interpretation, when faced with something new, or even strenuous — just smile! Our brains are gullible enough to be influenced by that simple act. It will instantly make our world look and feel brighter.

On Being a Guest

1. Do you find being a guest stressful? I make myself right at home and enjoy myself. 27.00%

It’s stressful to pack and repack, but while I’m a guest, I really enjoy myself. 32.00%

Making sure my kids don’t act too wild and break something or bother anyone keeps me constantly on edge. 30.00%

I’m only uncomfortable if I have to share a bathroom with the family. 11.00%

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! 74.00%

I wish I were able to help more, but I feel uncomfortable doing so in someone else’s house. 19.00%

I’m always busy watching my kids! How can I possibly help out? 6.00%

I don’t think it’s fair that I’m expected to help out after all the stress of packing and coming! 1.00%

3. Do you always bring a gift when you are hosted? Of course! I really appreciate the work a host puts into preparing for our arrival. 52.00%

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 7.00%

I’m deeply appreciative, but I can’t always bring a gift. 35.00%

Yikes! I didn’t realize gifts were expected! 6.00%

Here’s what Monsey hostesses would like their guests to know: It is our greatest pleasure to host. Please come more often! It would be much easier if you tell me what you need so that I don’t have to guess! We enjoy our guests so much. Please tell us if there’s anything you need! Be sensitive to our neighbors, and keep the noise level down (e.g., be careful when moving a chair or other furniture, or walking with heels, etc.).

please tell me what else you need. Please keep the kids occupied and quiet on Shabbos afternoon. Please let us know when you leave. I’ve had several times that the door was closed, and I wasn’t sure whether the guests had left or if they were still there! When you see our home from up-close, and it’s not as clean as you imagined, and the kids are all around, please be accepting and don’t expect perfection.

All I want is for you to feel comfortable here,

February 26, 2020 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 229 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


Feel free to ask me for anything you need. Please don’t leave your own food in my guest room. I would love it if my guests would be honest with me.

I want to give my guests a royal experience, but somehow, life happens! I enjoy having you as guests. Please feel pressure-free in my home. I love my guests!

If you have to cancel, let us know as soon as you know! Please don’t wait until close to Shabbos. Remember that last impressions last. Try to leave while the vibes are still positive. Hosting is not always as easy as it seems. Please give advance notice! Please make sure not to leave your stuff lying around, and please don’t roam around the house. We love it when you come, but please remember that it’s a bonus that you’re being hosted, and don’t have any major expectations. Be thankful. I don’t have a separate guest room, but if it works for you, I’m glad to have you as a guest in my home! It’s greatly appreciated when you don’t arrive too early and leave soon after Shabbos. Appreciate the hard work, and say thank you! Hachnasas orchim is a really rewarding mitzvah. All of my kids enjoy having guests. Basic cleanliness is very appreciated. I like to see you comfortable and calm. Don’t fret about the mess your kids make and about helping me. Please don’t make too much noise. Make yourself comfortable, and let us know if there is anything we can give you. I don’t appreciate gifts from my guests.

230 / THE MONSEY VIEW / February 26, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

Please take care of your kids. My guests should know how much we enjoy having them! Call before you come. Never come unannounced. I’m easygoing; you can ask for anything if you’re missing something. We love having you, but please don’t bring food into the bedrooms — you are welcome to eat in the kitchen at any time! Make yourself at home. We love to spend time with you! But please don’t get involved when our kids misbehave. Respect my home, and of course, the people living in it! Either come early and help out, or come late when everything is done. Feel free to use anything from the closet, fridge, drawer, etc. and to set the AC/heat to a comfortable temperature. I enjoy my guests; they are not in my way. It’s important to let your hosts have a little privacy. When you see that we’re having a private talk, try to go into your room or a side room, and don’t stay right under their feet. It’s hard when guests arrive early on Friday before I’m ready for them. And please don’t help; I am particular about my dishes, table and the way I run my home. My job is to make you feel at home. Your job is to feel at home!


Here’s what Monsey guests want their hostesses to know: Please respect my privacy and give me my space. Please don’t feel pressure when I’m around. I only enjoy being your guest if you enjoy my presence without having any expectations of yourself. Thanks for hosting! I am so appreciative that you are putting us up! A calm host with a good listening ear in a relaxed atmosphere is more appreciated than gourmet food and fancy accommodations. Just be calm — I’m not judging you. Thank you for hosting! You’re not bothering me when you ask me for help. I really appreciate your hosting. It is so beautiful when people give to others! Please relax. Enjoy our company. And please know that I don’t notice everything. I won’t remember what clothing you wore. I won’t remember every nitty-gritty thing that was lying around. I’m very easy to please. I try my best to leave everything the way I found it, but it is extremely difficult to leave things perfect when coming with small children. Please forgive me if I leave the room or house in less-than-perfect condition. Please make sure the guest room doors close properly and have working locks. I am also human — I don’t expect perfection from my hosts. Hachnasas orchim is greater than kabbalas Pnei haShechinah! What a great mitzvah! I try my best to help out. I don’t want to be a burden on my host. Please offer us food even if you think we’re really comfortable in your house — we’re usually

too shy to take on our own! More than anything else, we appreciate a clean and presentable room. We hate to feel like a burden. We are so happy to be your guests, and we appreciate your hard work. I love to help with serving and cleaning up. But please don’t ask me to take care of your kids. Please let me help out more! You don’t have to serve us all the time. You can show us where the basics are, and we’ll help ourselves. If your guest room is under an action-packed, noisy part of your home, please try to keep it as quiet as you can — or warn your guests beforehand. Letting me help only makes me feel more comfortable, as does letting me serve myself instead of being served. I love being at your house. Please don’t refuse help. I really try to keep your house clean and make sure that my kids don’t eat up all of your food. Please let us know what your combination lock number is, or where your key is, before we arrive, so that we shouldn’t have to bother you if we arrive late. Do not work too hard to prepare for us. We hate to see an overworked mother because of us. No need to stress. Please don’t pressure yourself to make everything perfect. It feels so unnatural and stressful, too. I hate burdening you. Please let me help you with your workload, so I feel useful and not like a burden.

February 26, 2020 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 231 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


We appreciate extra boxes of tissues, hot water for coffee, and a chair or suitcase stand. I love coming and enjoy the extra help I get with my kids, even if staying home is easier as far as structure and routine are concerned. It’s important to let guests know to feel comfortable to take whatever they need from your fridge or cabinets so they shouldn’t feel bad asking for anything extra. Please don’t whisper secrets in front of your guests! Please don’t excuse yourself that all is not perfect. Relax! I’m here and I want your company more than any fancy sixcourse shalosh seudos! A hostess who takes pressure makes her guests take pressure. Don’t worry about your kids’ behavior; they are normal. My kids are at their best behavior now because they are guests. They’re rowdy at home too! I wish my host would know that if I offer to help, I really mean it. It’s uncomfortable for me to watch everyone working while I sit on the couch; I’d much rather help out too! A pleasant atmosphere is more important than a perfect home. I hate it when the hostess is stressed because of me. It feels so uncomfortable. Let me know what your combination lock number is so I won’t be stuck outside, especially on Shabbos. Children are uncomfortable when not in their familiar setting and may be more clingy and needy away from home. TLC always goes a long way. And we are more appreciative than we can express!
