WHEN SECONDHAND IS NOT RECOMMENDED (Re: The Stuff Exchange, Issue 240) I was touched to see your giveaway list. How beautiful it is that others are so willing to share the items they no longer need. I wanted to point out, though, that using a secondhand car seat may compromise its safety. The first reason not to use a car seat that has been used before is that you can never be sure of its history — the interior components of a car seat that has been involved in a crash may have been damaged, even though the seat looks perfect from the outside. Another reason to be careful is that each car seat has an expiration date, after which it may not be as effective in protection, and the owner’s manual would be needed to know when it expires.

BIT BY BIT IS DOABLE (Re: Bite-Size Pesach Cleaning) Your bite-size Pesach cleaning program is awesome! I had two simchos this past week, but I still managed to take a half-hour every day to do my task. Thank you for getting me so motivated to do a mitzvah b’simcha and b’shleimos. I can’t wait to see your future ideas. I can just imagine how incredibly creative they’ll be! I’d love to see a recipe for chocolate molds; they’re simple to make and taste great! Thank you for your amazing work! A Happy Reader

WHAT TO DO (Re: And Everyone Was Gawking, Issue 222) This letter is quite late in coming, and I apologize. Being that it took time and thought to write, it kept being relegated to the procrastination pile. Ruchy Reese wrote an article about someone being taken to the hospital by Hatzolah and how everyone was watching. This touched a raw nerve in me. It’s been 38 years, and I can still feel the humiliation and embarrassment I felt when I had a sudden lifethreatening emergency and had to be rushed to a hospital in Manhattan to have an emergency procedure done. As we emerged from my house, I was lying on a stretcher, and I thought I would die from embarrassment. There were so many people outside the house, standing and watching us in our time of fear

and distress. Worst of all, the crowd of spectators was not only limited to children! I vividly recall covering my face, thinking that perhaps if I couldn’t see the people, then maybe they couldn’t see me either. Where is the feeling of v’ahavta l’re’acha kamocha? Klal Yisroel is so great in so many middos. What about thinking how you would feel in such a case, with a whole block of neighbors stretching out their necks to see exactly what’s going on? Please, I beg of you. Next time you witness a Hatzolah call on your block, r”l, keep walking — and do something constructive: Say a kapitel of Tehillim for the person. It will be much more helpful for both of you! S.T.

YOUR VOICE THANK YOU, ALL! Thank you so much for producing Monsey’s most amazing weekly. We read it from cover to cover each week. I would like to use this forum to give a grand shout-out to all of our amazing salespeople who are going above and beyond during this very hectic Erev Pesach/coronavirus chaos. I was in Rockland Kosher on Sunday morning, having been told that everyone and their first cousin was out. Entering the store I was expecting empty shelves, but I was pleasantly surprised to find a fully stocked store. When I thanked Mr. Fried, he told me he had been in the store all night with his team, preparing it for the customers. Thank you, Mr. Fried and all the employees who work nonstop to make sure we have all we need and want. A Grateful Shopper

Motzei Shabbos: 45 minutes a†er the zman-12:00am


By: Malka Schneps

PA RS H A S VAYA K H E L- P E K U D E I This week’s parsha begins, “Vayakhel Moshe es kal adas bnei Yisroel vayomer aleihem eileh hadevarim asher tzivah Hashem la’asos osam. Sheishes yamim tei’aseh melacha u’vayom hashvi’i yih’yeh lachem kodesh‌ lo s’va’aru aish b’chol moshvoseichem b’yom haShabbos — And Moshe called all the community of Bnei Yisroel to assemble, and said to them, ‘These are the words that Hashem has commanded that you should do them. Six days shall work be done, but the seventh day shall be holy for you‌ You shall not kindle a fire in any of your dwelling places on the Shabbos dayâ€? (Shemos 35:2-3). At a time when we are being told that we must practice “social distancing,â€? our parsha opens with Moshe Rabbeinu calling upon Klal Yisroel to assemble together, and Moshe begins to teach Klal Yisroel the halachos of Shabbos. Shabbos is the source of all blessing. The mahn that fell in the desert was wrapped in a layer of tal (dew). The gematria of tal is 39, an allusion to the 39 melachos of labor. The mahn did not fall on Shabbos, which hints that the 39 melachos are forbidden on Shabbos. This is also a hint to the fact that our sustenance comes in the merit of our keeping Shabbos. While we do not work for parnassah on Shabbos, Shabbos is the source of our sustenance all week, as the Zohar Hakadosh states, “The six days of the week receive their blessings from Shabbos.â€? R’ Elimelech Biderman, shlitâ€?a, cites the Chasam Sofer, ztâ€?l, that Hashem wishes to bestow upon us great blessings, but we need a ves-

sel in order to receive the blessings. Chazal say, “Hakadosh Baruch Hu found no vessel that could contain blessing for Yisroel other than peace� (Mishnah Uktzim 3:12). The vessel of peace is hinted at in the parsha as well, as we noted above: “You shall not kindle a fire in any of your dwelling places on the Shabbos day.� The greatest peace in Klal Yisroel is when we achieve total unity. When Klal Yisroel assembled together at the base of Har Sinai to receive the Torah, we achieved such a great level of achdus that we were k’ish echad b’lev echad (Rashi on Shemos 19:2). At the time that Klal Yisroel received the Torah, we were not only brought together physically, but we were united in our hearts. We are presently facing a difficult and painful situation whereby we are increasingly being forced apart physically. Therefore, we must work to be unified in our hearts. We can still be k’ish echad b’lev echad. The Zohar Hakadosh notes that there are 600,000 osiyos in the Torah. The Megaleh Amukos explains that this number corresponds to the 600,000 Yiddishe neshamos. Likewise, the letters of the name Yisroel stand for “yesh shishim ribbui osiyos la’Torah.� Just as if even one letter is missing from a sefer Torah, the entire sefer Torah is pasul, so, too, is every person essential to Klal Yisroel. R’ Paysach Krohn explains that there are no words in the Torah containing fewer than two letters, indicating that none of us can stand alone. We need each other. How can we come together if we are kept physically apart? We should always have in mind all of Klal Yisroel when we daven. Learning Torah is essential, as not only is it our protection, but it is our common cause, as it says, “Torah tzivah lanu Moshe morasha kehillas Yaakov – The Torah that Moshe commanded us is the heritage of the congregation of Yaakov� (Devarim 33:4). Also, we should work to achieve peace, as this is not only the source of unity but is also the vessel through which we can receive Hashem’s mercy. We should work to forgive people and not harbor grudges against anyone. We should also keep in mind anyone who might feel disconnected from Klal Yisroel in any way, chas v’shalom. If we know of anyone who may be lonely or isolated, now would be a great time to pick up the phone and make that connection. May we all strive to achieve true achdus, and in that zechus may Hashem remove this harsh decree from upon us.

Bring in your Shabbos with

SINCERITY.

There was the candy aisle, and next to it, the chocolate display. Dark chocolate, milk chocolate, cream-filled confections and luscious hand-crafted pralines drew customers’ eyes. Only store insiders knew about another display in between the enticing layers — a layer of tiny poisonous pellets. Morning after 84 / THE MONSEY VIEW / March 18, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


morning, the store manager in Monsey checked the poison; the pellets remained intact, untouched. As for the rodent-bitten chocolate bars, they were quickly removed from the display. When Pest Arrest was called in, the store manager was at his wits’ end. He’d tried so many forms of traps and repellents, but nothing seemed to get rid of his nemeses: the chocolate-loving mice. Mr. Pollak of Pest Arrest analyzed the problem carefully. Armed with extensive technical knowhow culled from thirteen years’ experience, an out-of-the-box mindset, and plenty of seichel, he understood that these mice were discerning, and so he decided to beat them at their own game. “We studied the rodents’ behaviour and used our observations and their love of chocolate to lure them into entrapment,” he relates. “The mice problem was soon gone, and it never came back.” Mice are far from the only culprits who boldly wreak destruction on property if left unchecked. A mother in Spring Valley was taken aback one day when one of her children leaned against the wall of her bedroom. The wall seemed to give way, and an immense swarm of bees poured into the room and onto the startled child. It was an emergency call to Pest Arrest that saved the day. Mr. Pollak had to open up the Sheetrock, which he found that the bees had penetrated, building a hive inside its cavity. He expertly contained the entire hive of distressed bees while removing them and securing the wall. Pests ask no one’s permission before in-

vading our space, nor do they discriminate. Mr. Pollak takes pride in his unrivaled knowledge of a huge range of rodent and insect issues that can arise. In the past thirteen years, Pest Arrest has earned the trust of a diverse local clientele, from offices to food establishments, and wedding halls to private homes. The sparkling reputation and excellent hygiene ratings of many local businesses is Pest Arrest’s testimony to success. Pest control is a science, but it also requires creativity and problem solving. More than anything, though, the job gets done because Mr. Pollak and his team care about your peace of mind. In one instance, he was able to solve an apparently unsolvable fly infestation by ingeniously searching an entire commercial kitchen. The hall managers had tried to exterminate the pesky creatures several times, but they kept reappearing. It was Pest Arrest’s thorough approach that revealed an open jar of moldy tomato sauce, hidden from sight, which was a breeding ground for larvae, creating the infestation. His tales from the trenches are many and varied. Housewives are understandably furious when an audacious nest of roaches feasts on the fruit of their kitchen labors; Mr. Pollak’s method can remove the entire distasteful infestation. Worse yet, nobody wants to talk about bedbugs, but those bloodgorging minibeasts have no compunction about invading the finest of homes, stealing hard-earned rest as they stalk sleepers. Pest Arrest receives calls from many tearful homeowners. Discreet and professional, their technicians are known for whiteglove service, with the benefits of the latest technology and independent testing. They will leave no pillow unturned — and no bug alive.

get their homes ready for Pesach and spring, pests that hibernate during the winter are getting ready to emerge too. Ant colonies come to swarming, teeming life.

State of Emergency Declared to Combat Coronavirus Pandemic With the number of coronavirus cases continuing to rise daily, Rockland County Executive Ed Day announced an official state of emergency on March 16 in an all-out effort to slow the spread of COVID-19. As of Monday afternoon, the coronavirus had already taken the lives of seven New Yorkers and infected 950 people in New York, including 18 confirmed cases in Rockland County alone. Day announced a four-pronged approach to fighting the coronavirus and noted that additional restrictions could be implemented in the coming days if additional action is needed to further limit the virus’ local growth. All Rockland County public schools serving children in grades kindergarten through 12 were ordered closed as of Tuesday, with private schools given one additional day to prepare for the closure, which currently is to extend through March 30. Post-high school educational institutions will also be shuttered, though dormitories and dining areas are permitted to remain open for noncongregational purposes. Day care, preschools and prekindergartens, which had originally been exempted from the state of emergency, were temporarily shut down just hours later to comply with a directive issued by Governor Andrew Cuomo. The state of emergency also addressed hoarding, with a short-term two-per-household/business limit on many commonly used cleaning supplies, foods, paper goods, bottled water, toiletries and pharmacy items, taking effect on Monday afternoon and lasting for five days. A limit of four pounds per day was also imposed on items including fresh meat, produce and fish, with a two-gallons-per-day restriction imposed on milk for the same time period. Other measures included in the state of emergency were a requirement for all salad bar and buffet items to be offered in sealed containers and a warning to those who

92 / THE MONSEY VIEW / March 18, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

are tested for the coronavirus to quarantine themselves while awaiting results and further instructions from their physician or the Department of Health. Anyone found violating the state of emergency could face misdemeanor charges, punishable by up to three months in jail, a year’s probation and fines of up to $500. Those who fail to comply with the school closure orders or the coronavirus testing directive could also face additional penalties from the DOH of $2,000 per day, per violation. The state of emergency did not in any way reference shuls, though Day urged listeners to avoid congregating whenever possible. The county executive warned that the state of emergency could be extended and additional orders issued as well, a possibility that looms large if the number of coronavirus cases grows significantly larger in the Monsey area than in other parts of the county. Throughout his remarks, Day emphasized that the measures were not intended to be punitive, but rather to ensure public safety. He called on stores to allow those at greater risk from the coronavirus, such as the elderly, those with chronic medical issues and the immunocompromised exclusive access during their first hour of opening each day, giving them the ability to avoid long lines, reducing potential exposure to the virus. Day noted that it was time to put any differences aside and work together for the common good, urging Rocklanders to check in on their neighbors to ensure that they were coping well during an admittedly difficult time period. “It is more important that we work together and support those who are struggling,” said Day. “We are embarking on a very difficult journey, but I have faith in all of you, my friends and neighbors. Together we can overcome anything that stands in our way. We did it before, and we will do it again.” Day’s statements came just hours after the governors of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut issued a joint directive on the virus, taking a regional approach to more effectively slow the virus in the entire tri-state area, following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control. The three governors handed down uniform standards intended to limit crowds for social and recreational purposes, which went into effect on Monday night, prohibiting gatherings of 50 or more people, transitioning restaurants from dine-in service to takeout only, and temporarily closing theaters, gyms and casinos. “This is not a war that can be won alone, which is why New York is partnering with our neighboring states to implement a uniform standard that not only keeps our people safe but also prevents ‘state shopping,’ where residents of one state travel to another, and vice versa,” said Governor Andrew Cuomo. The effects of the coronavirus are being felt all over Monsey, where confirmed cases had been reported last


Make Your Own Hand Sanitizer Empty store shelves have become a common sight over the past week, and shortages have been reported on items ranging from bottled water to paper towels and just about everything in between. Hand sanitizer, a convenient way of eradicating 99.99% of germs when soap and water are not available or practical, has become increasingly difficult to find, but is surprisingly easy to make on your own. Hand sanitizer consists of nothing more than two commonly found ingredients: isopropyl alcohol, a basic first-aid supply, and aloe vera gel, used for relieving burns. The recipe takes just minutes to make, according to Business Insider.

week in one yeshivah and one local business. Area libraries locked their doors for two weeks or more on Friday, and by Monday night, numerous yeshivos had already been closed in the Monsey area, with just a handful opening for a final pre-Pesach day on Tuesday morning. Both Kehillat New Hempstead on Union Road and Kehillas Bais Yehudah on Lime Kiln Road are closed for now, and Congregation Ohaiv Shalom in New Hempstead was limiting its davening to a maximum of eleven men at each of two minyanim under the guidance of Rav Dovid Cohen, who noted that it was absolutely assur for a twelfth man to join the minyan. Monsey Trails was running a limited schedule this week to accommodate the unusually low number of commuters, but outside the area, the closures appeared to be far more extensive. All New York City public schools are closed until at least April 20, and with New Jersey’s closure of all public and private schools in the state, Bais Medrash Govoha took the unprecedented step of shutting down as of Wednesday, though efforts were underway to find alternate locations where learning could continue in state-sanctioned groups of 50 people or less. In the Five Towns, over a dozen shuls have closed, while the Vaad HaRabbanim in Baltimore and the Rabbinical Council of Bergen County both announced the closure of all local shuls, cautioning residents to daven alone and not to arrange home minyanim. In a message recorded with County Legislator Aron Wieder, Dr. James Israel warned local residents to take the highly contagious coronavirus seriously. Dr. Israel stressed the importance of frequent hand-washing,

avoiding kissing the mezuzah and sifrei Torah, and warned that those who have cold symptoms, a sore throat or a fever should stay home from shul, noting that coronavirus can be deadly. “I would like to request that everybody take this virus very, very seriously and do their job to protect contagiousness from somebody else,” said Dr. Israel. “Wishing everybody good health, arichas yamim and besuros tovos. We ask Hakadosh Baruch Hu to protect us from this and many other sicknesses.”

Recap: A man comes to check out the cuckoo clock, says that the clock is worth much more than 250 shekels, and pays $2,500 for it. The Potolskys are dumbfounded, and Elisheva is nervous about the strange story, especially as it comes on the heels of so many other strange events. The Potolskys move into their new home the next day and prepare to host Elisheva’s father for the first days of Pesach.

Australia “Yes, yes, thank you. Low alcohol, please.” He looked at the clear, red liquid that slowly filled his crystal goblet to the lip. “Right you’re going to let me steal your afikoman?” seven-year-old Benjy asked him cheekily. “Because yesterday my father didn’t let.” “Tell me when exactly you want to take it, and I’ll decide then,” the guest replied with a smile. “Kadesh!” Benjy’s father announced, and placed three square matzos into his tall tiered Seder plate as they all stood up. The guest preferred not to pick up the full glass in his hand, and instead encircled the narrow stem of the goblet with his fingers. His hands were not what they used to be, and he had no desire — even after being a Pesach guest here for fifteen years — to stain the family’s pristine silk tablecloth and make it awkward for everyone. He insisted on staying young, and when those parts of him that refused to remain young emerged, he did his best to conceal them. He drank most of the wine in the glass and leafed through the leather-bound Hag-

gadah on the table in front of him. It was the night of Pesach, the Festival of Freedom, so why did he feel like his brain was in prison? It was roiling with thoughts that kept turning over in his mind, preventing him from enjoying the company of his devoted relatives. His fingers played with the lace napkin that had been arranged into a fan next to his gleaming plate. He didn’t like the design on the napkin, nor did he like the plate. He also hadn’t enjoyed the Seder the previous night and feared he would not enjoy tonight any more. What was going on? He must be tired. He hadn’t been sleeping well, and he would have to come to terms with the fact that tonight would also end earlier than he would have liked. You get old, that’s how it is. And as long as you stubbornly refuse to take sleeping pills, take into account that your days start at 3 a.m. He set his empty goblet down with the weariness of an old man. He liked Pesach vacation at Daniel’s home in Perth, but although the visit was as pleasant as ever, these things seemed to drain him at this point. He wasn’t twenty anymore, and he needed his bed, his house, his quiet and his privacy…

His back stiffened in pain, and he leaned against the back of the chair, unable to move for a moment. He closed his eyes and reflected on the fact that he hadn’t been at the orthopedist for quite some time. He’d never tolerated doctors. “Are you afraid they are going to tell you to write a will?” Alexander Korman would tease him in those halcyon days when they were both young, busy and successful, and the thought of wills only flashed rarely through their minds, if at all. “And if so?” he used to answer. “Let’s say I am afraid of that. Why can’t I be? Isn’t it my right?” “It’s your right, of course,” Alex — he should rest in peace — would always reply. Your right. Indeed, it is your right to ponder wills very rarely, he told himself bitterly, because you know that if you think about them too often, you’ll get into trouble. As it is, you spend most of your days trying not to think. Not about the past, not about the future, and not too much about the present either. The problem is that when you age — and there’s no denying you are aging — your head automatically fills with thoughts. Unwanted, wanted — they don’t ask permission to barge in. Okay, enough already! It’s Pesach tonight! Be happy! The family in Bnei Brak is also celebrating Pesach happily tonight. Maybe he should send someone to Bratislava to try to dig into the past again. Why not? He had been most pleased with Leonid’s recent work. True, investigations into the present were simpler, but Leonid was very good at what he did. He hoped that Leonid would do a good job of meandering through the pathways of the past, which had gone up in smoke, seemingly silenced forever. Again these thoughts?! On Seder night? “I wish you lived closer to us,” Benjy whispered to him as he wiped his lips after emptying his smaller, child-sized becher. “I like it when you come to our house. My mother and father like it also.” Really? He was somewhat doubtful about that, but to their credit, he had to admit, they had never tried to get out of hosting him each year. He preferred not to think too much about why they were so devoted to him. Each year, Daniel called a week or two before Pesach and reminded him that they were expecting him for all of yom tov, of course. Getting to Daniel required a domestic flight of just a few hours, and he would spend the whole week of Pesach in Perth. And this year, here he was again. “Urchatz!” Daniel announced. “Uncle and I will wash our hands now.” “I’ll bring the cup and bowl!” Benjy volunteered. He seemed to have adopted their guest this year, and was determined to wait on him hand and foot. As he stood with the towel on his shoulder, polite and patient, he asked, somewhat randomly, “How are you related to us, anyway?” He smiled at Benjy, took the towel off the boy’s little shoulder, and wiped his hands. Benjy’s mother answered patiently, instead of

him. “Stop badgering him with questions, Benjy. It’s a bit complicated to explain. He’s a cousin of Zeidy and Bubby who lived in Eretz Yisroel; you didn’t know the family. And when Arik was in eighth grade, he went on a summer trip to Eretz Yisroel and met him.” “Uh-huh,” twenty-year-old Arik said, from the other side of the table. He yawned. “Can we continue? I’m hungry already.” “A cousin of Zeidy or Bubby?” the boy pressed. “Zeidy. Now go back to your seat. And don’t get the drapes wet when you pass! How many times do I have to tell you that?” The guest sat, paging through the Haggadah in front of him. Drapes. He couldn’t imagine that the family in Bnei Brak had drapes, even for the Seder night. They probably did not have crystal glasses or pure silver napkin holders, either. But he hoped that they had managed to use a bit of the generous yom tov grant that they had received to buy some new things for themselves.

middle, to make the whole thing more symmetrical?” Elisheva retreated to the kitchen. “I don’t think the silver has to be in the center,” Eliyahu answered, in the same patient, respectful tone that he used when speaking to his oldest sister. “I think the seforim belong in the center, and it’s more appropriate for the silver to be placed on the side.” “So why wasn’t it like that in your old bookcase?” “Because I didn’t have the choice. The silver display was built into the middle of our old bookcase, and that was it. We bought a floor sample from the store twenty years ago. Here, the person who installed this asked me exactly how I wanted to plan the layout of the shelves.” “Nu, very nice. And what other furniture did they give you?” She looked up as Elisheva set a mug of hot tea in front of her. “Oy, Elisheva, I told you not to!” “It’s fine; let us host you with the honor you deserve. When do we ever have a chance to have you?” “That’s right. In your old apartment, it was nearly impossible to get into the dining room. So what’s with the furniture? I see your antique table is still here. And the chairs.” “We were supposed to get a table with eight chairs, and another coffee table with a couch and two armchairs,” Eliyahu said. “A coffee table,” she repeated. “Menachem, why aren’t you sitting down? Yehudah, you too. Take a drink or something to eat while I take another look around the apartment.” “The children are showing me the large porch,” her husband, Menachem, said. “I never would have believed there could be such open air in Bnei Brak at this time of year.” “Well, the sixth floor on the outskirts of the city — what did you expect?” she said. “Wait until some more buildings go up here, and you’ll want to run back to your little porch in our house in Yerushalayim.” She turned back to Eliyahu. “So, a coffee table, you said, Eliyahu? Really now. A set of matching chairs sounds good — better than this whole hodgepodge you have here. But armchairs? Why do you need them? And a couch?” “We always had a couch, but it’s old already. And I like this table and don’t really want to replace it. So we asked for only the chairs and the couch, and they let us exchange the rest of the stuff for bedroom furniture — dressers and beds. But they’ll only be coming in after Pesach.”

As it is, you spend most of your days trying not to think. Not about the past, not about the future, and not too much about the present either.

* * * * * “I don’t believe it, Eliyahu!” Yocheved stood gaping at the built-in bookshelves that were packed with seforim. Then she spun around to her brother. “Where is that very dignified, traditional bookcase of yours?” “In the storage room downstairs,” her brother answered patiently. Elisheva was bustling from the kitchen to the dining room, serving dates and nuts, Pesach cookies, cake, and homemade lemonade. “Don’t bring in so much food,” Yocheved scolded her. “Sit down for a minute. What is this? You’ve already let Eliyahu put his seforim into the wall?” “It’s not a wall.” Eliyahu looked over at the plaster shelves. “It’s a built-in bookcase. What difference does it make what a seforim shrank is made out of? It’s easier to use than the wooden bookcase.” “What’s easier about it?” Yocheved turned to look at her younger brother. “The shelves don’t sag.” “Oh, you think plaster is stronger than pressed wood?” she asked, hardly concealing her scornful tone. It wasn’t directed at Eliyahu, of course, but at the offending, modern new bookcase that she decidedly did not approve of. “Plaster is not stronger than wood, but metal is. And there are enough metal bars in those shelves.” “And the silver display,” she said. “Why is it on the side? Why didn’t you put your silver items in the

by downstairs, so it’s okay.” “I miss my friends who live near the old house,” Meir said, “but it’s not so far. On Isru Chag I’ll go help my friend collect wood for the Lag Ba’omer fire. It’s only a fifteenminute walk.” “Oh, that’s not too bad. All the kids stayed in the same schools, right?” “Yes,” Elisheva and Eliyahu said together. “So what’s with your apartment? When are your tenants moving in?” “They’ll get the key a week after Pesach. I don’t know when they are actually planning to move in.” Elisheva passed Yocheved a platter

They’ll pay a few months’ rent up front.” Menachem nodded approvingly. “That’s good.” “Yes, it sounds very good,” his wife added. “So, you’ll have some more ma’aser to give for Aunt Minna’s operation, right? Yankel told me that you gave him a nice amount, but you know how it is; there’s never enough money.” “We’ll see,” Eliyahu said. “What does that mean, ‘we’ll see’?” “It means that I have a few ideas about what to do with my ma’aser money, and I have to look into it.” “What’s there to look into? What other things were you thinking of doing with it?” “Buying a sefer Torah for a shul,” he replied. “A sefer Torah!” Yocheved stared at him as though he’d swallowed five whole dates with the pits. “How much are you renting that apartment out for, Eliyahu, that you can deduct ma’aser of one hundred and thirty thousand shekels?!” At the doorway of the porch, Binyamin was chatting with his cousin Yehudah, Aunt Yocheved’s youngest child. They both turned around when they heard her voice rise. “What costs one hundred and thirty thousand shekels, Mommy?” Yehudah asked. “A sefer Torah.” “A sefer Torah? Our yeshivah got a new sefer Torah before Purim that cost more than a hundred and forty thousand.” “Nu.” Yocheved looked triumphantly at Eliyahu. “After all, Eliyahu, you didn’t become a millionaire. Although…” She looked around. “Maybe this apartment might delude you into thinking otherwise.”

Yocheved conducted another walk-through of the house, which passed without any comments, and then they all sat down in the spacious dining room. “I understand that your father isn’t here anymore,” she said to Elisheva. “No, he left back to the nursing home on the first day of Chol Hamoed. But he enjoyed being here very much, baruch Hashem.” “I’m sure.” Yocheved’s eyes, which were usually narrowed with suspicion or criticism, also knew how to smile. “Plenty of space, wellraised grandchildren, a devoted daughter and son-in-law… So, children, what do you say about the new house?” “It’s nice,” Chani and Esti said in unison. “And big,” Devoiry added. “But Mommy doesn’t let us ride our cars here,” Shloimy complained.

Biden and Sanders Debate Amid Coronavirus Outbreak THE PULSE: Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders faced off

against each other in their first one-on-one debate. The debate, initially scheduled to take place in Phoenix, Arizona, was moved to Washington, D.C., due to coronavirus concerns. There was no audience present, and one of the moderators, Jorge Ramos, had to pull out due to exposure to the virus.

108 / THE MONSEY VIEW / March 18, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

THE DEBATE: Both candidates used the platform of

the debate to blast the Trump administration’s handling of the COVID-19 outbreak. They also focused on health care and environmental concerns. Biden, taking on the role of the de facto nominee, directed much of his criticism toward President Trump and, at times, even struck a conciliatory tone with Sanders. THE IMPACT: The debate was likely Sanders’ last

chance to strike a blow at Biden’s candidacy. Biden currently leads Sanders 860 to 706 in the delegate count. A Biden implosion would essentially be Bernie’s best chance to regain his political momentum. However, Biden held his own and fended off many of Sanders’ attacks. It is unlikely that the results of this debate will fundamentally change the trajectory of the campaign.

Administration Under Pressure for COVID-19 Response

Chaim Blum//845.274.4196

‫מחזור המפורש‬

THE PULSE: The Trump administration has

been on the receiving end of much criticism for its response to the coronavirus. Much of the criticism has been directed against the president for his initial reaction of downplaying the threat of the virus and for his administration’s failure to procure adequate testing kits. Many have also criticized the president for spreading inaccurate information regarding the illness and for muddling the administration’s policies to contain it. In early comments, the president repeatedly insisted that the virus was under control and that it posed a threat similar to that of the seasonal flu. He intimated that the hype around the virus was the work of Democrats and the media with the intent to take him down. In a recent speech, intended to calm a jittery nation, the president appeared to announce that all travel from Europe would be shut down, and that cargo shipments of goods would be halted. He also said that copays and deductibles would be waived for coronavirus treatment. In the hours after the speech, the administration was forced to clarify that the travel policy does not apply to U.S. citizens arriving from Europe, that the ban does not apply to goods and cargo, and that copays and deductibles are being waived for coronavirus testing but not treatment. THE IMPACT: Americans understand that the situation regarding COVID-19 is unprecedented and fluid. Many will understandably not hold the president accountable for what appears to be the inevitable spread of the disease in the United States. However, the president will need to account for how he deals with the impending crisis. It is imperative that his messaging is accurate and correct and not hyperbolic or merely wishful thinking. Trump did act decisively in shutting down travel from China when the virus first broke, but evidently, that was not enough. Friday’s bipartisan Emer-

gency Relief Bill that the administration helped draft and support is likely the kind of political leadership that Americans are looking for at this time of national need.

Bipartisan Emergency Bill Passes the House THE PULSE: An emergency bill to help address the

coronavirus crisis passed the House with strong bipartisan support. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin hammered out the details of the bill. The bill includes mandated paid sick leave for many workers. It increases funding for food assistance programs and provides funding for free coronavirus testing. The legislation is expected to pass the Senate and be signed into law by the president. THE IMPACT: The bill is a rare act of bipartisanship

in a bitterly divided Washington. The bill passed 363-40 with one abstention by Independent Representative Justin Amash. Those who opposed the bill argued that it was passed in haste and that there was no accurate estimate of the real costs involved. Those who supported the bill stressed that it provides crucial aid for the health of the country and that it provides vital economic assistance to many Americans. Equally important is the message it sends that Congress is capable of addressing the pressing issues of the day and is not paralyzed by partisan gridlock. The administration signaled that this was not necessarily the last relief bill and that another bill with aid for airlines and cruise companies suffering from the economic downturn may also be in the offing.

Iran-Proxy Strikes U.S. Base on Soleimani’s Birthday THE PULSE: On Wednesday, the birthday of Qasem

Soleimani, Iranian proxy forces attacked Camp Taji, a U.S. base to the north of Baghdad, and killed two American soldiers and a British serviceman. The

110 / THE MONSEY VIEW / March 18, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

attack also wounded fourteen others. The U.S. retaliated with attacks against Kata’ib Hezbollah, the Iraqi-based Iranian proxy that the U.S. accused of carrying out the attacks. On Saturday, Kata’ib Hezbollah once again fired rockets at Camp Taji and wounded three American military personnel. The American response to Kata’ib Hezbollah received a sharp rebuke from the Iraqi government, which called it a “violation of Iraqi national sovereignty.” THE IMPACT: President Trump portrayed the killing of Qasem Soleimani as an act of deterrence that would dissuade Iran from future attacks against U.S. troops, bases and embassies. Trump has staked his foreign policy on the limited but effective use of U.S. power. If Trump’s strategy proves effective, it could serve to bolster his foreign policy credentials ahead of the upcoming election. However, should the policy prove ineffective in halting Iran’s aggression and should tension with the Iraqi government continue to rise, it will be harder for Trump to argue that his policies have had the desired effect.

Louisiana and Georgia Postpone Primaries THE PULSE: Louisiana announced that it was postponing its primary scheduled for early April to June. Georgia also announced that it would be postponing its primary. The postponement of these elections is due to coronavirus fears. The March 17 primaries in Arizona, Florida, Ohio and Illinois are all scheduled to proceed as planned. Many voters have chosen to vote by mail to avoid social gatherings at polling places. Illinois broke a World War II-era record for mail-in ballots. THE IMPACT: Biden leads in polling in all these

states. Sanders is struggling in Florida, as many voters there are highly critical of his past comments regarding the Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. If Biden can win convincingly in these primary contests, the primary race may effectively come to an end as campaigning in the age of the coronavirus has become exceedingly difficult, and Sanders will have no realistic path to the nomination. Ultimately, the primaries in Georgia and Louisiana may not be necessary at all.

Sweet. Soft. Chewy. Pesach Cookies Recipes and photography by: Miriam Pessy Wercberger

It doesn’t really feel like Pesach at my shvigger’s without my sister-in-law’s chocolate-chew and melt-in-the-mouth cookies. I was ecstatic when she allowed me to share these classics with you. These recipes go to show that even without the bells and whistles of fancy ingredients, you can create mouthwatering yom tov treats.

Chewy Meringue Pops With Praline Filling 126 / THE MONSEY VIEW / March 18, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


Making your own praline is an exciting process and so rewarding. Sandwich it between these meringue cookies, and get ready for a treat that’s chewy, yummy and festive! Thank you, Leah Stern, for being the inspiration behind this recipe. Meringue Cookies Ingredients 4 egg whites

Praline Ingredients 1½ cups chopped filberts

1 cup sugar 1 cup finely chopped walnuts

¾ cup sugar 1 T. water

Directions 1. Preheat oven to 250°. 2. Line baking sheets. Beat egg whites until stiff. Slowly add sugar. Turn off the mixer and gently fold in the nuts. Drop spoonfuls into round mounds on the cookie sheet. Bake for 50 minutes.

Chocolate Drizzle Ingredients 3 T. confectioners’ sugar 2 T. cocoa 1 T. water

Directions Mix until smooth. If chocolate hardens after a while and is too thick to drizzle, place it into a bag, pierce the bag with a toothpick and drizzle, rather than adding water to the chocolate. This will achieve a stiffer icing that doesn’t melt off the cookie.

Directions 1. Preheat oven to 375°. 2. Spread filberts onto a cookie sheet. Roast for 15 to 20 minutes, mixing occasionally to prevent burning. Remove from the oven and set aside. 3. Place sugar and water into a pot set over medium heat. Allow to cook without mixing until sugar turns amber in color, approximately 5 to 10 minutes. 4. Add nuts and whirl the pan so the nuts get evenly coated. Working quickly, spread nuts onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Allow to cool. Break into pieces, and blend in a food processor for a few minutes until a smooth paste is formed.

Four-Layered Coffee Ice Cream Cake By: Miriam Paskes Photo credit: Imageination by Frimet Chana 845.558.6770

This dessert is a winner in taste, elegance and presentation. It’s fascinating to see what one can make when using even the most basic of ingredients. You will need to make each recipe twice, for a total of four layers. Read assembly instructions before starting.

128 / THE MONSEY VIEW / March 18, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


Coffee Cake Prepare this cake twice and freeze.

Ingredients ¼ cup freshly squeezed orange juice

6 eggs, separated 1½ cups sugar

½ cup ground filberts

½ cup oil 1 T. coffee dissolved in 1 T. boiling water

¾ cup potato starch

Directions 1. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, and preheat your oven to 350°. 2. In the bowl of a mixer, on high speed, beat the egg whites and sugar until stiff. Gently fold in the yolks, oil, dissolved coffee, juice and filberts. Lastly, fold in the potato starch. 3. Pour into prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 38 minutes. Allow to cool, and then place in the freezer.

Coffee Ice Cream Note: This is delicious as an ice cream on its own, too. Make a double batch and freeze in a 9x13” pan.

Ingredients 6 eggs, separated

⅓ cup oil

⅔ cup sugar

1½ T. coffee dissolved in a bit of boiling water

Directions 1. In the bowl of a mixer, beat the egg whites and sugar on high speed until a very stiff snow forms. 2. Very gently fold in the yolks, oil and dissolved coffee.

Assembly 1. Prepare two cakes and freeze. 2. Make one ice cream recipe. 3. Remove one cake from the freezer, and pour one recipe of the coffee ice cream over it. Immediately place back into the freezer. 4. When the ice cream is completely firm, remove from the freezer. Take the second cake — along with the parchment paper — and holding on to the edges of the cake, flip it on top of the ice cream. Remove the parchment paper and place the assembled layers back into the freezer. 5. Make another recipe of the ice cream, and pour it over the first three layers. (If your ice cream isn’t stiff, create a border around the cake with two layers of silver foil so that it doesn’t run down the sides.) Freeze again. I like to store the assembled ice cream cake in a large Rubbermaid storage bin. Optional: When serving, top each slice with a few sliced almonds. Roast the almonds at 400° for about 7 minutes, stirring once in the middle.

It is a scene reminiscent of Cold War dystopian fears. Once-bustling American cities are on lockdown. Schools and shuls are closed indefinitely. Supermarket shelves have been emptied of bare essentials. Doctors and nurses are working overtime to save the ill. The world as we know it is on pause, and nobody can even venture a guess as to when it’ll all be over. As we go to print, these scenes are incrementally becoming more of a 2020 reality. The enemy? A microscopic piece of genetic material; a virus called SARS-CoV-2, causing a disease named COVID-19. The symptoms? Fever, coughing, sore throat, runny nose, body aches, and in more severe cases, difficulty breathing. The impact? We can’t even begin to fathom. It all began quietly — too quietly, perhaps — in the Wuhan region of China, when in the months of November and December a number of people exhibited flu-like symptoms, which were soon determined to be caused by a novel strain of coronavirus. Experts suggest that it might have stemmed from an unhygienic seafood and bird market, where the virus first made the jump from animals to humans. The virus turned out to be extremely contagious, and by the time Chinese officials publicly admitted to the existence of this new virus, countless individuals were infected, the city was placed on lockdown, and a ball of hurt was stealthily unleashed throughout the world. Chinese health officials quickly found themselves overwhelmed, unable to handle the huge number of patients requiring hospitalization. In an impressive ten-day span, they built

a 645,000-square-foot makeshift hospital that could service up to 1,000 patients! Some 7,500 laborers worked around the clock to put together an entire hospital made of prefabricated pieces,

which could be snapped together like pieces of a Lego set. The building of the hospital garnered so much attention that a livestream was set up so viewers around the world could follow the progress.

Wuhan is an economic hub, which sees millions of travelers from around the globe. With the virus yet to make headlines, individuals who contracted the disease ended up being personal couriers for this deadly virus. Iran was particularly hard hit when a merchant traveling from Wuhan to Qom (a city that sees many Muslim pilgrims to a local shrine) ended up turning the coun-

try into another global coronavirus epicenter. The virus infected many leading Iranian officials, including the vice president, members of parliament, and the deputy health minister who defiantly announced — while visibly weak, sweating and pale — that the country has “almost stabilized” the outbreak, before himself testing positive the very next day. As of this week Monday Iran has officially seen over 850 deaths, but some analysts suggest this number could be underreported. Satellite imagery has shown a massive number of graves being prepared at a cemetery in Qom, which suggests that Iran expects the death toll to rise significantly. Another country particularly hard hit is Italy. Many reasons have been suggested: an older population, more smokers, limited hospital resources and more. Early this week, the death toll reached nearly 2,000 out of 25,000 reported cases. After first ordering a lockdown of just one region, the Italian government has since put the entire country under a national lockdown, restricting citizens' movement and activities until April 3. The only retailers still open are pharmacies and supermarkets.

Corona Comes to the USA We live in times of hyperconnectivity, and it was a matter of when, not if, the COVID-19 would make its first appearance in the USA. In late January, a number of individuals who had traveled abroad returned home after having contracted the disease. The first large outbreak we were aware of was in a nursing home facility in the state of Washington. After dealing with what appeared to be a flu outbreak, dozens of staff and patients tested positive for coronavirus, and since mid-February, at least 20 deaths have been tied to this outbreak, with a large number of the facility's patients among the dead. With a virus this contagious, it wasn’t long before community-spread positive tests began popping up around the country. Community spread refers to virus transmission where the source is unknown and the patient hasn’t traveled or had any known contact with an infected individual. The first such case in the tri-state region was a Jewish attorney in New Rochelle, who tested positive and was hospitalized with respiratory complications. A couple of days later his son also tested positive, as did his wife, daughter, neighbor, friend, friend’s wife, and friend’s two sons and daughter, before positive tests came back for members of his congregation and a couple of other friends. This case was a perfect illustration of how this highly contagious disease spreads exponentially, and helps explain the drastic measures NYS officials took after this outbreak.

Jewish Life Affected In the busy days before Purim, Yidden in Eretz Yisroel and around the world began feeling the brunt of the virus spread. In addition to the troubles of those who tested positive and their families, increasingly restrictive measures were announced by the authorities, and life as we know it came screeching to a halt. At first, it was only the shuls and schools that housed anyone infected with the coronavirus that were closed down. But soon enough, governments announced measures to slow the spread of the virus, many of which will have a

In Eretz Yisroel, where nearly 350 cases have been confirmed, but no deaths reported, baruch Hashem, Prime Minister Netanyahu first announced that all new arrivals will be required to self-quarantine for fourteen days. Within days, new far-reaching measures were announced, including the closing of all government-run schools, bans on gatherings of more than ten individuals, suspension of all leisure activities and more. Early this week, as the ten-person gathering maximum went into effect, footage circulated of weddings that took place outdoors where neighbors and friends sang along and participated from nearby porches. In Chareidi circles, communities have been following the directives of Harav Chaim Kanievsky, shlit”a, who suggested that yeshivos and schools remain open. In order to comply with the government ruling, the classes and minyanim are kept strictly to only ten in size. In Antwerp, Belgium, the government has been forceful in its suspension of public community gatherings, and police even ordered a stop to the Shabbos morning davening at a number of shuls, including those of Pshevorsk and Satmar. Locally, the serious measures announced by the authorities are still trickling in as this article is being written. What was first a ban on gatherings of 500 people, has since been lowered to just 50 people and on Monday, the State of New Jersey announced a general curfew every night from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. In addition, all schools have been ordered shut for a couple of weeks and it’s already becoming clear that life will not return to normal until at least after Pesach. While some children are surely enjoying this extended school break, it remains to be seen how this will affect preparations for what promises to be a Pesach season we will never forget.

Flattening the Curve At this point, experts agree that the virus can no longer be fully contained here, especially since the United States was way behind other countries when it came to mass testing. Since asymptomatic people can transmit the disease, even speeding up testing capacities significantly would not be enough to halt the spread. What is left to do then is what many are referring to as flattening the curve. The goal is to slow the spread of the virus so that we don’t have millions of people ill at once and overwhelm our hospital system, like what happened in Italy. The best way to understand this is by calculating the effects of exponential growth. Let’s assume that we go about our lives as normal and every sick individual makes just two new people sick over three days (a fair assumption). Now take a

142 / THE MONSEY VIEW

calculator and start doubling the 4,000+ confirmed U.S. cases to 8,000, then 16,000, 32,000 and so on. It will only take a month or two until 100,000,000 Americans contract the virus! There is no way society can possibly manage such a catastrophe. The only thing left for experts to do is to try and flatten the curve, and see to it that we practice social distancing so that the virus doesn’t transmit so quickly and our health care system can handle the elderly and weak who need care. While we turn our eyes Heavenward and daven for the best, we can all help flatten the curve by listening to the advice of medical experts, stay home as much as possible and practice proper hygiene.

Answering Coronavirus-Related Questions on the Minds of Many Is it possible that the media is exaggerating matters for sensationalism or political reasons? The media is always an easy target, but nearly all epidemiologists, health experts and government officials around the globe seem to agree on the gravity of the situation. Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu, who is not one to easily succumb to media pressure, has been among the most forceful in his response.

Why can’t a vaccine be developed to immunize society? Even with an accelerated timeline, experts estimate that it will take over a year for a vaccine to be made widely available. Vaccines for one virus cannot immunize against another virus. The new vaccines will need to be rigorously tested to ensure that they are effective and don’t cause more harm than good.

Are all patients infected with the same type of coronavirus? Some studies have demonstrated that there are currently two types of coronaviruses spreading around the globe, with the more aggressive variety being more popular. More research still needs to be done as this can have an effect on vaccine development.

How long after contracting the coronavirus do symptoms appear? This can vary from two days on the short end to two weeks in other cases. On average, patients will start seeing symptoms at around day five and can expect the symptoms to get worse over a period of a few days.

Can you transmit the coronavirus before or after experiencing symptoms? It is possible to transmit the virus before symptoms appear; it appears that COVID-19 is different from other viruses where asymptomatic individuals rarely transmit the disease. While patients are experiencing symptoms, they are generally infectious, and

144 / THE MONSEY VIEW

once recovery begins, they most likely cease to be contagious.

When will things return to normal? White House point man Dr. Anthony Fauci from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said Sunday that the outbreak will only get worse before it gets better. Because the USA has lagged far beyond other countries in its testing capabilities, it is fair to assume that the number of positive cases and casualties will spike significantly in the near future. Once the situation gets better, it will take a week or two until the improvement shows up in the data.

Is this virus more dangerous than the flu? At this point the exact death rate is hard to pin down, but it appears to be much more deadly than the flu, especially for the elderly. Additionally, because it is far more contagious and the symptoms take longer to appear, we risk overwhelming our health care system, which can lead to devastating consequences.

Is the coronavirus dangerous for young, healthy people? For the most part, the virus isn’t overly dangerous for those who are young and healthy, but there are exceptions. However, the greatest risk of healthy people contracting the virus is that it can easily be transmitted to the elderly or those with underlying health conditions. That is why everyone needs to take this very seriously.

What can individuals do to help stop the spread of the virus? We’ve all heard by now the importance of washing our hands and staying home if we feel ill. However, every one of us needs to practice social distancing to whatever extent possible. The more we go near others, the more likely we are to contract the disease and then further transmit it. If done right, social distancing will significantly slow or break the chain of transmission, and with Hashem’s help, turn the tide against this terrible affliction.

With COVID-19 causing us all to be on high alert, handwashing is being touted as one of the best defenses against the virus. But surprisingly, hand-washing wasn’t always encouraged‌ Step back in time and meet Dr. Ignaz Semmelweis, the hero of hand-washing.

152 / THE MONSEY VIEW


Vienna, 1846 Beyond the walls of the First Clinic, panic-laced whispers were being carried on the wind. Women are dying there, they said. New mothers are leaving behind their infants. It was as if the angel of death was silently roaming the maternity ward, searching for victims. And no one knew how to stop it. When Dr. Ignaz Semmelweis was appointed as an assistant to a professor in the maternity ward of the Vienna General Hospital, commonly referred to as the First Clinic, he was astounded by the monumental problem facing him: namely, the death of nearly 10% of new mothers under the clinic’s care, due to what was termed “childbed fever.” To further confound matters, the mortality rate was significantly lower but a short walk away, over in the Second Clinic, where patients were attended to by midwives instead of physicians-in-

training. Every time he thought of the difference in mortality rate, it drove him mad, making him wonder what caused women to succumb at such vastly disparate rates in the two wings of the same hospital. With determination, Dr. Semmelweis set out to discover the answer to this terrible mystery and put an end to needless death. He began by comparing everything in both wards: the temperature, the medical techniques in use, the issue of overcrowding… But one by one,

THE MONSEY VIEW / 153


each potential cause became disqualified — until, finally, Dr. Semmelweis was able to hit upon the one apparent difference: the staff themselves. In the Second Clinic, midwives and midwifetrainees attended to women and infants as their sole occupation. But in the First Clinic, the physicians-in-training only showed up to tend to the new mothers after a daily shift in the “dead house” — what we would now refer to as the morgue — where they’d examine cadavers and discuss possible causes of death. Could it be, Dr. Semmelweis wondered, that some sort of cadaverous particles are being transferred to the maternal patients, and in some way, causing childbed fever? To test his theory, he instituted a policy that would require hand-washing with chlorinated lime between a stint in the morgue and the examination of patients. Astoundingly, the ma-

ternal death rate of 18.3% in April of 1847 was followed a month and a half later — after the hand-washing policies were put in motion in mid-May — with a mortality rate of but 2.2%. By July, the rate dropped even lower to a mere 1.2%. In the year that followed, two months achieved an absolute zero percent death rate — something completely unheard of at the time. To further encourage positive improvements in mortality rates, Semmelweis eventually required medical

154 / THE MONSEY VIEW

instruments to be washed, as well, and despite the grumblings of the nurses, insisted that bed linens be changed between patients. While all of these requirements sound absurdly obvious to us living in the generation of Purell and disposable examination gloves, cleanliness at a microscopic level was not a consideration in those days. In fact, instead of the pomp and circumstance that should have heralded Semmelweis’ discovery, physicians of the day considered it an insult to be told that their hands were unclean, considering it an assault on their gentlemanliness. Sadly, Dr. Semmelweis was discredited and ridiculed, spending a tumultuous two decades fighting for the medical establishment to recognize his breakthrough. Ultimately, however, he spent the last days of his life in a straitjacket in an insane asylum, having been admitted by other physicians on the claim that he’d lost his mind. Because really now, who could imagine that something invisible to the naked eye could be the cause of death for so many people?* It would take a couple more decades before Louis Pasteur and the germ theory of disease would prove to the world that, yes, there truly are microscopic pathogens that swarm even on apparently clean surfaces, able to infect and bring death and destruction to the unsuspecting. Posthumuously, Dr. Ignaz Semmelweis has earned his place in history as the hero of hand-washing. As for us, let us be heroes in our own generation, exercising care and caution to prevent spread of the coronavirus and other harmful pathogens. Armed with a bar of soap and a kapitel Tehillim on our tongues, let us go forth and wage war on harmful microbes. *Note: To be fully truthful to history, it is said that Dr. Semmelweis did exhibit odd behavior toward the end of his years, which may have been psychological in nature. However, it is speculated that his admittance to an asylum was not solely based upon his behavior, which may not have been severe enough to warrant admittance.

WHY YOUR CURB IS CLEAN On Service and Sanitation Prepared for print by: Shevy Hollander

160 / THE MONSEY VIEW / March 18, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

Now, before Pesach, much of what we’ve been hoarding for the past eleven months finds their way into big, black bags and tossed into cans. But do we give any thought to what happens to everything we’re emptying out of our home and into the street? In this interview with Mike, a local sanitation worker who was kind enough to share his insight, we give you an inside peek at what the work looks like from the truck.


Can you share with our readership what your work hours look like?

I wake up at 5:00 each morning and clock in at 6:00. The length of my shift varies, depending on the day and whether we get a help truck (there’s sometimes a second truck that does Herrick and Decatur avenues for us, since they are very heavy streets). On a day when there’s no second truck, the work can take a full twelve hours. On Mondays and Thursdays, we do one or two runs around areas of Monsey that encompass West Maple Avenue, Monsey Boulevard and the surrounding streets. On Wednesdays we pick up cardboard and bottles, and on Tuesdays and Thursdays, we have a route for solid waste in Spring Valley. Are there times in the year when you need to keep longer hours?

In the summertime there’s always more trash to collect, so the hours are generally longer than in the winter, and when it comes to the weeks and days leading to Passover, of course, we get very busy. We always get help trucks on those days, and even then, we put in full twelve-hour shifts each day.

I tell the driver all the time, “This is my gym!” I get a great workout from the work alone, and although I’m still quite young, this work will keep me young and in good shape as I get older. How did you get into this line of work?

It’s not easy to secure a position with the sanitation department. They get many applications and are pretty selective when it comes to filling these positions. However, I know a lot of people working there, and a friend gave a recommendation for me, so I was lucky to be accepted. How long have you been working in the sanitation department?

It’ll be a year in August. What are some things you enjoy about your job?

I get to be outside and interact with a lot of people. There are many people I got to know along the route whom I’m glad to greet on a weekly basis. What is the most difficult aspect of your job?

How much trash can a garbage truck hold at once?

One truckload holds about 20 tons, which is 40,000 pounds of trash. Once the truck is full, which often happens in the middle of our route, we drive up about twenty minutes to the Rockland Waste Management facility in Hillburn to dump the load in our designated spot, and we then return with the now-empty truck to finish the route. So on a day when you’re doing two runs, do you and your partner actually lift 80,000 pounds of trash?

Definitely the weather! Which do you find more difficult, the extreme heat or the extreme cold?

The cold. I don’t mind the heat that much. In fact, if I’d have the option of doing garbage collection in Florida, I’d like that very much! The past winter was great, though, with much milder weather and barely any snow. But worst of all is the rain. Besides making the work unpleasant, everything gets heavier when it’s wet.

That’s not the case every day, because our second run doesn’t always leave us with a full truckload, but we do a great deal of lifting. Some cans can be attached to the lifter and get emptied automatically, but most cans are not equipped with the bars that connect to the truck, and so we manually lift most bags out of the cans. That’s a great deal of exercise! Do you still go to the gym on top of this?

Well, I’d love to go to the gym, but I don’t have the time. And like

March 18, 2020 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 161 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


Do you have any air-conditioning and heat in the cab of the truck?

I don’t even get to be inside — I stay outside, on the back of the truck. Wow! Do you wear any special protective clothing to stay safe on the job?

The sanitation department supplies me with work gloves — we obviously won’t use our bare hands — and another safety requirement is steel-toe boots. We also get the uniforms. However, I definitely dipped into my own pocket, too, to make sure I’m safe on the job. I purchased a good rain coat, waterproof boots, and whatever else is needed. Have you ever found anything in the trash that you took home?

I can’t say I have. Most of the time I’m in such a hurry that I dump the bags into the truck and go! Are there any gestures from families that you and your colleagues appreciate?

I always appreciate when people offer snacks and drinks — especially cold drinks when it’s hot out. We

162 / THE MONSEY VIEW / March 18, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

can’t carry much on ourselves, and we are out for hours and hours, so I am very grateful when people are kind enough to offer something. What would you like Monsey families to know? How can we make your job easier?

Though the days we collect the garbage is physically strenuous, it’s the recycling day that’s the hardest. People don't seem to know that the town requires that all cardboard be folded flat and tied up; most people just put the boxes out, and then the wind blows it all over their yards and even on the road. While we’re not required to collect whatever is not at the curb, I don’t have the heart to leave the cardboard all over the place, and I collect as much as possible. If people would heed the town’s requirements, our jobs would just be so much easier. Another thing I’d like people to know is that certain garbage — specifically, construction waste like Sheetrock, cabinets, etc. — has to be collected directly by the town, and a call has to be placed before they are put out. We are not supposed to take such items on a regular run. Thank you, Mike, not only for the sheer labor and toil you invest to keep our local streets clean, but also for sharing with us what it’s like to work in sanitation!

A TWO-WEEK SERIES

168 / THE MONSEY VIEW / March 18, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


By: Gitty Kay

It’s almost Pesach! What comes to mind for most of us is getting the house cleaned, the cooking and baking done, and coming up with ideas on how to set our Seder table to be fit for a king! While the cleaning and cooking must get done — let’s be real, otherwise there is no Pesach — take a few minutes out of your busy schedule to think about the Seder decor. Because while good food makes an oneg yom tov, good food plus a beautiful table — now that’s a yom tov of royalty! Whether you’re making this beautiful pillowcase for the head of the Seder or for other participants, it’s sure to make a statement of honor. Stay tuned for more Pesach DIY ideas to match this look!

YOU WILL NEED: • A yard of fabric • Pillow (or stuffing) • Pencil • Scissors •  Alef-beis tracers or printouts • Puff paint or any fabric paint • Small paint brush • Beads • Needle and thread

BEFORE YOU BEGIN:

For the fabric Choose a fabric that will match the rest of the table setting. Think of the dishes you will be using, the coloring of the room, the tablecloth, etc. Make sure that the threads of the fabric aren’t too thick, so that the fabric won’t unravel when the fringes are cut. Also make sure the fabric is not too flimsy, because such fringes will fall flat and won’t look as pretty.

For the aleph-beis You can either buy a package of tracers, or print out the letters you need, cut them out, and trace. The font size used in the sample is 700.

For the paint and beads The puff paint and beads should match the fabric you chose. A good idea is to take the fabric along to the craft store so you can choose accordingly.

March 18, 2020 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 169 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


LET’S GET STARTED!

The base 1.

Fold the fabric in half, and spread it out on your work surface. If the fabric has an edging that you don’t want, cut it off.

2.

Place the pillow about 4 inches off the corner.

3.

Cut the fabric around the pillow, leaving 4 inches of extra fabric on all four sides.

4.

Iron the fabric if there are undesired creases.

5.

Mark the four corners of your pillow with a pencil.

6.

Using the pencil mark as your guide, cut out squares on all four corners. Make sure you are cutting both layers of fabric. This is for the front and the back of the pillow case.

7.

Cut fringes on all four sides. The fringes should be approximately the width of three-quarters of an inch each. Use the empty square ends as your guide to know how long the slits should be. Again, be sure that you’re cutting both layers of fabric.

8.

Get rid of unwanted threads by softy pulling on them, or by cutting them off.

4.

Working with one letter at a time, draw a thin outline with the puff paint.

1.

Cut out the letters (if you are using printouts).

5.

2.

Start by placing the ‫ ס‬first. Since it’s the middle letter, make sure it’s in the center of the fabric. Then place the ‫ ח‬and ‫ פ‬on the two sides.

Squirt some paint inside the letter. Using a paint brush, fill in the letter completely. Be careful when touching the outline.

6.

For the next two letters, you may want to turn the fabric sideways. This way the painted ‫ פ‬is not in the way, and you don’t need to worry about smudging it with your arm.

3.

Trace the outline with a pencil.

Glam time!

Make it a case!

1.

Once the paint is dry, play around with your pearls or beads. Place them at random on your fabric, until you get your desired look.

1.

Place the pillow in between the two pieces of fabric.

2.

Thread a needle. Carefully sew the beads onto the fabric. Start from the bottom upward so the rest of the beads donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t roll off as you sew.

2.

Start by tying two end fringes in a double knot.

3.

Work along all four corners of the pillow, pulling the fabric tightly over it. Double-knot the fringes.

3.

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget to knot the thread on the back of the fabric after sewing each bead.

4.

For the clusters, thread all the beads together. Sew down the other end, forming a circle. To secure all beads in place, sew tight loops over the thread between the beads.

Tie random fringes around the perimeter to make sure the pillowcase stays neatly centered on the pillow.

4.

5.

Tie the remaining fringes with double-knots. And your masterpiece is ready for the Seder!

the care you want refuahhealthcenter.com

March 17, 2020 An open letter from Refuah Health Center: While the coronavirus continues to impact our day-to-day lives, we want to share with you, our patients, what we’re doing to keep patients and staff healthy. When scheduling an appointment, you’ll be asked a series of questions to determine if you are at risk of exposing others to coronavirus. It is our intention to keep contagious individuals from infecting others. To that end, most individuals with coronavirus can follow the recommended protocol and recuperate at home. Again, anyone experiencing fever, cough, sore throat, or body aches should assume that he/she has the coronavirus and should isolate in his/her home. The current recommendation is to isolate for seven days from the first sign of illness as well as three days with a normal body temperature before returning to your daily routine. If you or someone you know is suspected to have the virus and is experiencing difficulty breathing, please call Hatzolah immediately. Our greatest concern is for our community’s elderly and immunocompromised. While the majority of infected individuals get better after a short time, the elderly and chronically ill are at a much greater risk of experiencing severe complications. This is the vulnerable group that we, as a community, need to protect and keep out of harm’s way. Following are some practical tips for individuals over the age of 60 and those with chronic health condition such as diabetes, hypertension, or lung disease:

1. Refrain from crowds as much as possible. 2. If you must be with other people, keep your distance of at least 6 feet. 3. Avoid young children who may be carrying the virus and show few or no symptoms. 4. Call Refuah if you have any concerns about how you are feeling. Refuah is currently setting up a program whereby vulnerable patients will be seen in their own homes. The safest choice you can make at this time is to stay home! We are actively monitoring the situation, and will update you as soon as new information becomes available. To decrease unnecessary exposure, we ask that you cancel any nonessential medical or dental visits and suspend any nonessential gatherings. Stay well, Your RefuahHealth Team

A world of potential


Applying Ourselves to Our Appliances Here’s an uncomfortable truth: Some tasks are more exciting than others. It’s the nature of the beast. But there’s an upside to it: It gives us the opportunity to creatively find ways to make these less-than-delightful tasks more enjoyable. So, let’s! As we tackle our appliances, let’s take the opportunity to fill our hearts with gratitude for all these wonderful tools available to us. They say that happiness is the key to success — but it’s gratitude that is the key to happiness. Be grateful and your world (and work) will be more beautiful! I’ll also recommend some upbeat music while you work, comfortable shoes and a smile. They’ll put a bounce in your step and a song in your heart.

Motzei Shabbos

Depending on your home layout and family dynamics, you might be ready for the dining room table, chairs, sofas and recliners, either tonight, or the coming Motzei Shabbos. Technology has been good to us, and there are a plethora of tools available, from the vacuum cleaner to the steam machine, to make this task easy and effective. March 21

Sunday March 22

Dining Exteriors

The dining room/living room exteriors are the official task of the day. This is also the time to focus on the room’s walls — if you haven’t yet. The halachic requirement is only for the areas within kids’ reach, but I suspect you’d like to give the room where your Seder will be led a fresh, clean feel l’kavod yom tov. Especially when the Miracle mop makes wall-washing so very easy!

Monday March 23

Small Appliances

From Bosch machines to toaster ovens, our smaller appliances tend to be employed for actual chometz use. As such, we naturally want to give it a proper cleaning. But prior to breaking the machine apart in an attempt to get to dirt you can’t reach (or possibly even see) you might want to ask a shailah about how far it is necessary to go. Keep in mind that you’ll probably be “selling” these appliances, making efforts to eradicate tiny crumbs not only futile but probably entirely unnecessary. For those areas easily reachable, you can use a steam machine or even a toothbrush, but don’t expect perfection, as that is entirely unrealistic. Your general responsibility here is to wipe over the entire appliance (the Magic Eraser is especially useful for hard-to-remove food stains), but don’t allow this to be more difficult than it needs to be.

Tuesday

March 24

March 25

Oven If your oven is self-cleaning, then today, when the kids are out of the house, is the time to open the windows and let the magic happen. If, however, your appliance has that annoying tendency not to clean up after itself, then tonight, when the little ones are in bed, open the kitchen windows, put on rubber gloves, and spray it up. Most oven cleaners are toxic, and I know you know that — but your kids might not. So while I recommend leaving it overnight to work its magic, do make certain to wipe all outside surfaces, and make sure the kids don’t have access to the area until it’s entirely cleaned. Also, remember to dispose of the chemical cleaners once the task is done. No amount of money is worth the potential risk.

Dishwasher, Second Freezer or Oven Some are luckier in the appliance department than others. Having more room for your appliances certainly makes your life easier year-round — but it also gives you a bit more work this time of year. (But when counting your blessings, remember to include these, too!)

Bite-Size

PESACH CLEANING

Thursday March 26

To save energy, unplug your unit prior to cleaning. Remove all contents and dispose of anything not needed. Wipe down items you wish to keep. Remove shelves and wash thoroughly. Pay special attention to the underside of shelves and drawers, the refrigerator “ceiling,” back wall, and the gasket — which tends to accumulate crumbs. Avoid using bleach on the gasket, as it can dry out the vinyl, causing cracks. To clean the grate underneath or behind the refrigerator (as per fridge repairmen, this is an important aspect of refrigerator upkeep!), try a super-long scrub brush. And if space permits it (this is true of all of your free-standing appliances), it would be wise to move it aside to vacuum and wash underneath.

March 27

OF THE EIGHT-WEEK COUNTDOWN

Fridge and Freezer

We’re keeping the fridge for last, but do be wise and do this task before your weekly grocery order. It is always easier to work with less items around.

Friday

WEEK 2

Bonus tips: • Maximize your refrigerator’s efficiency (and keep your food fresh!) by ensuring your fridge is well sealed. Place a lit flashlight inside the fridge and close all lights in the room (nighttime works best), and you will be able to see if and where light escapes. To tighten the insulation seam, blow direct heat from a blow dryer and reshape the rubber sealing. • Refrigerator liners, typically used for Pesach, weren’t invented only for this season. As long as the fridge shelves are solid (and not built for air circulation), the liners work well for year-round use. Use one now! You can still store this week’s non-Pesach Shabbos food on lined shelves. Do keep real chometz out of the fridge (unless it’s double-wrapped or well sealed), but doing your work early doesn’t preclude eating home on Shabbos Hagadol.

Kitchen Odds and Ends

Start smart: Write a list of all the odds and ends you still want to complete today. Assign an approximate time frame to each group of tasks, and you’ll be surprised to discover how few minutes are required for each one. Timers keep you focused, they get you working faster, and ultimately, make you feel like the winner you are! Some odds and ends you may want to clean today are the light fixtures, hot water urn, Keurig machine, microwave, etc. While the microwave is assigned for today, many still prefer to leave their unit available for some last-minute chometz. Considering this is the convenience the microwave was created for, plus the fact that cleaning it is a minimal task, it is not a bad idea. Which is why I will once again remind you that you’re all capable of judiciously reviewing your calendar and allocating your not-yet-done tasks for the right days. For quick and thorough microwave cleaning, try this: Fill a microwave-safe bowl with ½ cup water and ½ cup vinegar, and nuke for a full seven minutes. Keep the doors closed to allow the steam to loosen any stuck-on dirt. After the water has cooled down (5 to 10 minutes), you should be able to easily wipe the inside clean with a paper towel or microfiber cloth. On the exterior of the microwave, the Magic Eraser truly works like magic!

Motzei Shabbos March 28

If you’re not eating home on Shabbos Hagadol, now’s the time to get to the stovetop, table and chairs. Completing your work ahead of time allows you to kasher or open the Pesach kitchen and start your cooking earlier in the week.

The purpose of art is to express an idea that will make us think — and potentially see things in a different light. In recent years, a number of artists have diverged from traditional art forms to employ unusual items in their creations. Whether their intentions are to make us consider our excess, our careless waste, or the fragility of life, their art is often as inspiring and thought-provoking as they are creative.

ANN SMITH

HA SCHULT

This German artist created hundreds of human-sized trash figures — and they’ve all traversed the globe over the past 23 years. They’ve visited places like a park in Tel Aviv, the Great Wall in China, a city center in Rome, the waterfront in Brooklyn and the pyramids in Giza. Each sculpture is made of aluminum cans, plastic bottles, computer parts and more.

Using discarded computer parts, this artist forms delicate creations in whose construction each part seems to fit perfectly. The intended message is about adapting and seeing how useful — and beautiful — every item around us can be.

ROBERT BRADFORD

Utilizing discarded childhood toys and game pieces, this artist creates charming sculptures that are intended to evoke nostalgia and make the viewer smile.

188 / THE MONSEY VIEW / March 18, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


By: Tziri Hershkovitz

PABLO PICASSO

Picasso was most famous for his painted art, though he did create sculptures, as well. In 1940, years ahead of the “trash art” movement, he created the whimsical Bull’s Head from a bicycle seat and handlebars. Although the piece wasn’t appreciated by critics at the time, it is now proudly displayed at the Musee National Picasso-Paris, where its simplicity and subtle humor is enjoyed.

NOAH DELEDDA

There is beauty in the most mundane and cheapest pieces of trash, or so claims the talented artist who scrubs away the outer layer of cans, brings it to a beautiful shine, and then proceeds to transform it with stunningly delicate designs.

ATELIER HAPAX

Got clutter lying around, which you want to hold on to for some inexplicable reason? This French artist will take your trash and transform it into something meaningful and beautiful — like a chess set created from cardboard pellets.

TYREE GUYTON

PALM SPRINGS MUSEUM

In Palm Springs Art Museum, art lovers were disappointed to find a pile of full Hefty trash bags as one of the showcased features. The message was supposed to make them think of all the waste we humans create on the planet, but most visitors felt that it was their time and money that was wasted.

When this retired-firefighter-turned-artist realized that dilapidated homes nearby were drawing the wrong element to his hometown of Detroit, Michigan, he went about transforming the houses with trash he found lying around — and some buckets of colored paint. Dubbing his project “the Heidelberg Project” (after Heidelberg Street, where he’d grown up), Guyton proceeded to enhance houses, vacant lots and even entire streets.

March 18, 2020 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 189 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


PTOLEMY ELRINGTON

Upcycling is a step above recycling, where people transform, rather than reuse, material that would otherwise end up in the landfills. This artist employs highway flotsam (most notably hubcaps) to create his captivating sculptures.

MAURIZIO CATTELAN

In December 2019, a banana installation made the news. The artist used a simple banana and duct tape to make a point — though most were left scratching their heads, unsure of what that point precisely was. The art then made even greater news, because despite the $120K price tag (!), there was a daring art lover who… actually ate the banana! The artist insisted that his art wasn’t destroyed and that a new banana could be placed in its slot. After all, he reasoned, it wasn’t as if the banana was going to stay fresh forever. Some argue that the stunt upped the value. It certainly increased the piece’s popularity.

Ultimately, the value of art is determined by you, the consumer. If you find a piece thought-provoking, or even just entertaining, then it has served its purpose. If, on the other hand, you find the “art” foolish and a waste of space… well, then, it technically is still trash — albeit in another form.
