(Re: The Yiddishe Yingele, Issue 247) My greatest appreciation to The Monsey View for creating an amazing magazine that caters specifically to our heimishe community. It is so special and unique to have a magazine in which every article pertains to and seems customized just for us. I especially loved that the Pesach issue had amazing recipes with minimal ingredients, which my family was really able to benefit from. Also, the family-sized cake recipes were a real hit. Thank you! This Wednesday, after my boys colored the picture in the magazine, checked out their fellow kids’ creations, and looked at the photos of the latest goings-on, I finally got a sneak peak. I loved the article “Secrets From Cheder.” It was so interesting and exciting, and had me remembering my boys’ cheder firens. Then I saw the adorable picture of the Yiddishe yingele upon his upsherin, and I was disappointed. That kappel the article is referring to, when has it become a fashionable item? How can we compare that to the little Yerushalmi boys having their curls chopped off and a big, black velvet kappel pinned onto their hair? And then I turned the page and saw what was meant to be an upsherin portrait, but to me looked more like a juvenile version of the story Caps for Sale. This isn’t about making this heilige item nicer as in hiddur mitzvah; it just cheapens it. Let us not get sidetracked. Let us keep our sights on our mesorah, and just like on Pesach, when we try to eat what our parents have eaten, let’s try

A CAMP THAT’S CALLED CORONA (Re: Corona Diaries) Kudos to Camp Corona and the super-mommy behind it. What better way to spend these overwhelming times in Klal Yisroel than encouraging simcha in a Yiddishe home, shalom between siblings, and constructive time spent together? Many frum families are now resorting to DVD-watching and online conferences as well as other technology to keep kids busy, and your technologyfree activities are a breath of fresh air! To the mother who wrote decrying Camp Corona’s message of “fun,” here’s my take: Teaching children to feel the pain and loss of Klal Yisroel without burdening them is an art. Depriving them of fun and play in order to impress upon them others’ sadness and would probably cause resentment and bitterness rather than empathy. Simcha in a home is the secret of our survival and a display of our love for Yiddishkeit! In our home, I acknowledge others’ pain by encouraging loving-kindness and respect and by telling the kids how special their schoolwork is and what a zechus their Torah learning is for all affected by the coronavirus! Their davening and Tehillim are making a kiddush Hashem, and that is what’s keeping the world upright these days. So please keep the constructive, traditional, fun ideas coming! R.R.

easy to work with, and the taste was out of this world. In regard to the Camp Corona series, I feel the focus of the feature is so off. At a time when so many of us are struggling, to be focusing only on our children having fun just seems so wrong. The ideas featured in the series are cute and doable, and there’s nothing inherently wrong with them. However, the attitude of making this all about the enjoyment of our children just strikes me as wrong. Yes, we are all working hard to have our children enjoy their days. No, we don’t want them to look back at this time as a time of dread and worry. And still, there’s a difference between enjoying ourselves and having “camp.” A little sensitivity to your readership, most of whom are struggling with COVID-19 to one degree or another, would go a long way. Once again, thank you for a great magazine. A Reader
RIKI SCHREIBER RESPONDS (Re: Not a Time for Camp, Issue 247) Dear Mrs. Weiss, Thank you for sharing your thoughts in last week’s issue about my column. The one thing that amazes me most about all of us, really, is how at the end of the day, what we want most is simply to do what Hashem wants of us. Our struggles (at least most of the time) center not so much about doing the right thing, but about finding out what the right thing is. And that’s so, so beautiful. Allow me to respond to your suggestions with some thoughts of my own. First of all, one of the beautiful things about Yiddishkeit is that there are so many ways to serve Hashem. As long as we are guided by rabbanim and a Torah-true Yiddishe hashkafah, we cannot go wrong. The derech you mention, of teaching our children to sometimes deprive
themselves for their chinuch, is a high road that has been used by gedolim, leading to some of our greatest giants. As you are aware, it is not the only way, but I would also like to add that, for most of us, it is also quite a risky one. While every decision regarding a specific derech of chinuch needs Torah guidance, the road of deprivation for the sake of building our children is a very, very fine art that requires special care and special guidance, more so than any other way — and especially in the tenuous generation we live in. Personally — and not only during these times, but also when faced with some major personal struggles — our derech has always been one of simcha; not in ignoring the sad situation, but precisely while living through it (and there’s a significant difference). I remember being told, after an especially agonizing and life-changing diagnosis, that if we truly believed that Hashem just did this to us for our good, then we wouldn’t make do with accepting it — we would be dancing and thanking Hashem for the tzarah. We truly believe that simcha is appropriate always. There is a great difference between the current situation and hearing about people going through pain in other times. The coronavirus is unfortunately affecting all of us. It is not “another Yid’s suffering”; it is our own. All of us have been affected, some terribly and irrevocably. One of the differences in the way we react to pain is dependent on whether it is our pain, or someone else’s. In response to someone else’s pain, words of emunah and joy are insensitive. To our own pain — we respond with simcha. And as much as my series tried to portray the joy and fun with which we are trying to infuse our home, the coronavirus is our struggle, too, with all the fear and anxiety and pain and worry for our sick loved ones — just like everyone else. It is our struggle, too, and therefore our response to it is simcha. An even greater aspect of this dif-

ferentiation is where our children’s emotions lie before we choose our way of guiding them. The coronavirus is not simply a chance to react to someone else’s pain. For most of our children, it is their own source of fear and uncertainty in these very turbulent times. Our children are not far-off spectators who can choose to ignore what is going on around them; for the most part, they are active players, feeling powerful emotions of fear, anxiety, and even trauma. They are that “other person” whose feelings we are concerned with right now, no less than people experiencing the more debilitating effects of the virus. With their much more limited capacity to absorb the uncertainty going on around them, and hearing far more information than we can imagine, or than they can appropriately absorb, their own experiences can be extremely traumatic. We need to remember that right now, we have another job: to get our children through this nisayon emotionally healthy and calm. If we focus on them as the sufferers no less than those who are sick, this can guide our way of addressing them at this time, perhaps differently than we may choose at other times. I will end once again with the most important point I wrote here — important enough to be repeated and concluded with. Any derech is okay — as long as there is solid da’as Torah behind it. But we do need to receive that da’as Torah. Wishing much health and happiness to all of Klal Yisroel. Riki Schreiber

(Re: Corona Diaries, Issue 247) As a teacher, I feel there are two big factors that were not taken into account when the Corona Diaries mentioned teachers. 1.

lower level (they might be one of the younger ones, weaker learners, or are not up to par for other reasons). We have students diagnosed with all kinds of disorders who need a special approach. We also have students who are, baruch Hashem, very bright and finish their work in seconds — and we are kept on our toes keeping them entertained. Another kind of situation that we teachers face is students being absent. So, yes, it’s true that we don’t actually teach all different ages, but we’ve got all different types of students from all kinds of backgrounds, which sometimes makes it feel like they’re of different ages. 2. What makes you think that teachers “don’t teach while simultaneously rocking a stroller with one foot and stuffing egg salad into a three-year-old’s mouth...”? I have news for you: Even teachers are in the same situation as you right now. And in addition to all that, we are busy preparing and distributing sheets, Call us today and we will reaching out to our students, running make your house look live conferences, recording lessons for brand-new again! hotlines, marking papers, and so on. And the saddest part is that a lot of you don’t even realize how much work and effort a teacher is investing in her job right now. I know that it’s a very overwhelming time for everyone, and that the hotlines/conferences can sometimes cause more stress than benefit, but I also know that some of my students literally glow when listening to their teacher’s voice and they thirst to learn. We actually do try to make the work very light and doable, because we are not here to cause Fully you more stress. licensed I would like to thank the parents & insured who go the extra mile during this criCall or text today 845.352.5348 sis to show appreciation to their kids’ www.rowmers.com • firstname.lastname@example.org ...................................................................... teachers.

YOUR VOICE NO ONE LIKE YOUR NATION I want to extend a big thank you to all of the Hatzolah members of Rockland County who literally put their lives at risk and let the norm of their life be completely disrupted by taking call after call around the clock in order to help save another Yid. There is nothing greater than saving a Yiddishe life, and you keep doing it with devotion and sacrifice. There is no one quite like the Jewish nation. May your s’char know no bounds.

PLEASE BE AWARE OF THIS SAKANAH! Dear Parents and Bachurim, When riding one’s bike on the road, one should never ride against the oncoming vehicles. When one walks, the law states that one should do so against the traffic. But when one rides a bike, the law requires the opposite — to go with the flow of the traffic due to the following reasons: 1. In the event of collision, the impact is doubled. (A car drives at 35 mph, and the bike at 15 mph, and if they collide, ch”v, the combined impact would be 50 mph!) 2. When a driver emerges from a side street or driveway and wants to make a right turn, the driver will look to the right briefly to watch out for pedestrian traffic, but will then turn left to look out for oncoming vehicles. When a bike rider is riding against oncoming traffic, he is not seen by that driver. Please drive safely! A Concerned Driver and Bike Rider

PA RS H A S B E H A RB E C H U KO S A I Parshas Bechukosai begins, â€œIm bechukosai teileichu vâ€™es mitzvosai tishmeru vaâ€™asisem osamâ€Ś â€” If you follow My statutes and observe My mitzvos and perform them, then I will provide your rains in their time, and the land will give its produce, and the tree of the field will yield its fruitâ€? (Vayikra 26:3). The Torah then goes on to list all of the brachos that will come upon us if we are compliant, and all the klalos that will befall us if, chas vâ€™shalom, we do not. The pasuk appears to be redundant, first telling us, â€œbechukosai teileichu,â€? and then enjoining us, â€œmitzvosai tishmeru.â€? If the Torah were telling us that we must perform mitzvos, it would be enough to say so only once, which means this double phrase may be alluding to another message. Rashi cites the Toras Kohanim to explain this seeming redundancy by taking note of the deeper meaning of â€œteileichu.â€? The root word of teileichu translates to â€œwalk,â€? implying a strenuous activity. He concludes that the significance of â€œvâ€™chukosai teileichuâ€? is that we must toil in the study of Torah in order to fulfill the mitzvos. The Baal HaTanya explains the same seeming redundancy in the pasuk by taking note of the deeper
meaning of the word â€œbechukosai.â€? The word â€œbechukosaiâ€? has the same shoresh as the word chakikah, which means â€œengraving.â€? The Baal HaTanya explains that a person can write something in one of two ways: by applying ink to parchment, and by engraving. When a person writes with ink, the words never become an actual part of the parchment itself; the ink rests upon the parchment, and the ink and parchment remain separate. On the other hand, when something is engraved in stone, the writing becomes an inseparable part of the stone itself. (Likkutei Torah, Bechukosai) How do we engrave the Torah in ourselves? The Sfas Emes in Parshas Chukas, noting the same relationship between chukas and chakikah, explains the way to engrave the Torah within ourselves through a teaching of Chazal: We must make the Torah our primary occupation. We must learn Torah, but we must also live the Torah with every action we perform. Furthermore, we must perform those actions with the proper intent, doing so for the sake of Hashem. Whether a person is at work or at home, serving Hashem must be their primary focus in life at all times and in all circumstances. We cannot know exactly why Hashem has sent a mageifah at this time, but we do know how to tap into the wellspring of brachos as offered in this parsha: We must make serving Hashem and living a life of Torah our main focus in life. From when we wake up and say Modeh Ani until we say Krias Shema at night, everything we think, do and say should be in line with living a Torahtrue life. We must always be aware of our actions and our intentions, and endeavor to think, act and speak correctly at all times. And if we ever make a mistake, we must not allow it to derail us, but learn from it and correct it, and always keep moving forward and upward. But there is a caveat. A person can have wonderful intentions and set out to keep mitzvos, but without proper knowledge and understanding, he can do the opposite instead, chalilah. A person can know that it is a mitzvah to fast on Tisha Bâ€™Av, for example, but he may be ignorant of the fact that we do not fast on Tisha Bâ€™A if it falls out on Shabbos. With all of his good intentions, this person might fast on Shabbos at a time when he is not supposed to. The Ohr Hachaim Hakadosh, in explaining why the Torah uses the word teileichu in the above pasuk, cites Avos 2:6 that an unlearned person cannot be truly pious. It is not enough to love Hashem and pursue mitzvos wholeheartedly; one must also know that his actions are correct, and to do so, one must learn Torah. During these trying times, we can aim to tap into the brachos promised in the Torah by toiling to learn Torah and working to live by the Torah. And of course, we can cry out to Hashem for mercy, because everything is in Hashemâ€™s hands.

From Schoolkids to Nursing Home Patients, Cuomo Continues the Battle Against COVID-19 A rash of serious illnesses in our area that has sickened dozens of toddlers and school-age children and has claimed the lives of at least three is being closely scrutinized to determine a possible connection to the coronavirus outbreak. Until now, children have been largely unaffected by the pandemic. But in recent days, dozens have been diagnosed with possible symptoms of Kawasaki disease, an inflammatory syndrome that does not usually cause the respiratory issues typically associated with COVID-19. Governor Andrew Cuomo has reached out to state departments of health nationwide to make them aware of this development and is working with the Centers for Disease Control to develop national criteria for identifying and responding to similar cases. According to the governor’s office, early recognition of the syndrome is crucial, and parents are urged to contact their physician if their child has fever for more than five days, severe abdominal pain, diarrhea, vomiting, change in skin color, difficulty breathing or is too sick to drink fluids. “Rest assured we are doing everything we can to learn more and keep parents informed,” said Cuomo. Cuomo’s plan for a return to some semblance of normal mandates prescribed declines in hospitalizations, hospital deaths and new hospitalizations, as well as having a predetermined percentage of regular hospital beds, ICU beds and monthly coronavirus testing rates. The governor is also requiring each region to have 30 contract tracers in place for every 100,000 residents to control the spread of the coronavirus. Web MD reported that contact tracing is a centuries-old and widely used tool in managing viral epidemics that tracks places an infected person visited while they were contagious. Individuals who might have come in contact with that person during that time period will be approached by contact tracers and asked to self-quarantine as well. Currently, the Mid-Hudson Valley region, which includes both Rockland and Orange counties, has met only five of Cuomo’s mandatory criteria, failing to have a fourteenday decline in hospital deaths, or fewer than five deaths in a three-day average, and having more than two new hospitalizations per 100,000 residents on a three-day average. Gradual reopenings are expected to begin
66 / THE MONSEY VIEW / May 13, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
on May 15 in the Finger Lakes, Southern Tier and Mohawk Valley regions of the state, who have met all seven criteria laid out by the governor. Construction, manufacturing, agriculture, forestry, fishing and curbside pickup at retail stores will all be permitted under the first phase of the governor’s plan, albeit with strict social distancing and cleaning protocols, health screenings and adjusted hours in place to prevent the further spread of the coronavirus. Landscaping, gardening and low-risk outdoor recreational activities in approved areas have also been greenlighted by Albany. The high rate of coronavirus-related nursing home deaths has become a major issue for Cuomo, who has been hammered in recent days for forcing nursing homes to admit patients who tested positive for the virus. An executive order issued by the governor will require all nursing home and adult care facility personnel to be tested twice weekly for COVID-19, with all positive results reported to the Department of Health within 24 hours. Under the order, hospitals will no longer be allowed to discharge any patient to a nursing facility until they test negative for the virus. Intent on curbing the coronavirus in Rockland County, the Department of Health has amended its ongoing isolation order to extend the isolation period from seven to ten days for anyone who tests positive for the coronavirus. Those who have completed the required isolation period can contact the Department of Health to request a letter confirming that they are no longer considered infected and are cleared to return to work. The ongoing isolation period has left many itching to resume their normal lives, and two major Jewish groups, Agudath Israel of America and the Orthodox Union, released lengthy precaution-filled guides on the eventual reopening
of shuls, strongly prioritizing safety over the obligation of davening with a minyan, once local governments have eased restrictions. Both outlined plans for multiphasic returns to tefillah b’tzibbur over a period of multiple weeks, first outdoors and then inside, which included significant spacing of eight feet or more between masked mispallelim, with restrictions placed on minyan size and touching sifrei Torah. Meanwhile, all eyes are on the laboratories, where the race to develop a vaccine against the coronavirus continues. NBC News reported that Pfizer, Inovio and Moderna have all reached the first phase of their clinical trial, and 14,000 healthy people have volunteered to take part in a study that would infect them with COVID-19 to accelerate testing, with 35 members of Congress asking the Food and Drug Administration and the United States Department of Health and Human Services regulators to consider the unprecedented step of testing a vaccine on human subjects. “I definitely think it’s going to be pursued,” said Dr. Matthew Memoli, director of clinical studies at the National Health Institute’s Laboratory of Infectious Diseases. “So many things could change, but I think it’s likely we could see [a vaccine] at some point in the future.”

Shoppers Rejoice Prematurely Before Mall Owners Retract Announcement For just a few hours, it seemed as if life might be taking one step closer to normal as the largest mall owner in the country, Simon Property Group, announced that it would be reopening the Woodbury Common Outlet Mall and The Shops at Nanuet on May 16. But delight turned to disappointment shortly thereafter, reported The Journal News, when a clarification was issued explaining that while Simon would be opening properties in Arizona, Delaware, Indiana, Louisiana, Michigan, Nevada and New Mexico, its New York sites would continue to remain shuttered. “Simon does not have plans to open these properties on May 16, and of course, will fully comply with all local and state orders,” read the statement. Rockland has been hit hard by the mall closures, leaving the county scrambling to make up for lost revenue from its largest tax contributors. County Executive Ed Day acknowledged that he does not have the authority to open the malls at this time. “Any decision rests solely with the governor, as he has barred our ability to take any local action related to COVID-19,” said Day.

Recap: Blumi calls Elisheva to find out how the yad got to her. She inquires whether Elisheva has a son who learns mishnayos for niftarim at night. Elisheva answers in the negative, and although the two are happy that Blumi has found her father’s yad, the mystery still remains — until Miri tells her mother that one of her sons does, in fact, spend nights learning for niftarim. “Tomorrow, Tatty’s going to take us to the sofer, where we’ll get to see the almostfinished sefer Torah,” seven-year-old Yitzy informed his brother, who had come home from yeshivah for Shabbos. “Do you want to come along?” “I’ll see it at the hachnasas sefer Torah, b’ezras Hashem.” Binyamin smiled and parked his suitcase near one of the beds in the large boys’ room. It was the first time he was coming home for Shabbos after the final room arrangements with the new furniture had been made. “You’ll sleep with Shuey, Meir and Yitzy,” his mother had told him a few minutes earlier when he walked in. “Put your things in the second room — the big one — and then come back here to have a drink.” Her voice was a bit loaded, and he looked at her quizzically. Then he went to put his things down. “This is the room with the most kids!” Yitzy explained to him proudly. “We’re four. Mommy gave the little kids a different room. And the girls got the really tiny rooms — Riki and Devoiry in one room, and Esty and Chani in another. Poor girls. It’s so boring to be with just two people in the room.” While Yitzy was talking, Meir, the older of the two, stood there and gazed at Binyamin.
Binyamin stared back. “Is everything okay, Meir?” he asked. “Yes. Just that Mommy said that if you don’t want to sleep in the room with us because it’s too crowded, then she’ll give you the last room, near the one that will be Zeidy’s. It’s empty now; we just dump stuff in there.” “Nu?” Binyamin asked. “So, do you want to move to that room?” Meir’s lips protruded in a pout; he already seemed offended. “No,” his eighteen-year-old brother said. “I’m sure I’ll enjoy it here with you very much.” “And it’s not too crowded for you?” Shloimy, who suddenly burst into the room, asked. Binyamin chuckled. “If we all slept together in the old dining room, and it was just fine, why should it suddenly be crowded for me now?” “I heard a neighbor here telling someone that she heard that before we moved, we had a ‘miserably tiny house.’” Shloimy rubbed his chin. “I’m not sure what that means, but I know what ‘tiny’ is, and I know what ‘miserable’ is, right?” “Right,” Binyamin affirmed. “I overheard it as I was approaching the fifth floor, so when I got to the top of the
May 13, 2020 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 71 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
stairs, I went over to her and said that we actually had a very big dining room, and we weren’t miserable at all.” “Hmmm!” Binyamin responded. “She was probably very surprised to hear you saying that.” “She was a little confused,” the little boy admitted. “So was the other neighbor. But then she said she was very happy to hear. And her face got redder and redder, and she opened the door that said… well, it doesn’t matter which name it said on their door, because it’s lashon hara. And she went inside quickly. But right we weren’t miserable, Binyamin?” “Of course not.” “Tatty says that money is not what makes people happy,” fourteen-year-old Shuey said. Until now he’d been sitting on his bed with his nose in a book. “But if you can buy things with money, then you get happy,” Meir said. “No,” Binyamin said. “That’s not true.” “Why not?” Meir asked. “Because it’s not true,” Binyamin repeated. “Tatty said that if you answer ‘because,’ it means you don’t have an answer,” Meir said triumphantly. “It’s not that there is no answer,” Shuey argued back, siding with Binyamin. “It’s just something you’ll only understand when you grow up.” “That’s worse than no answer,” Meir grumbled. “And I think that if I would have money to buy all sorts of things, I would be happy.” “I have money,” Binyamin said, without thinking, “and that doesn’t make me happy.” “Because it’s not really money,” Meir scoffed. “It’s just coupons for seforim. I saw what you get from yeshivas bein hazmanim and all that.” “No, we get a little bit of real money for tests. I also have some other money,” Binyamin said, not sure what he was trying to prove or why he was trying so hard. “I have almost fifteen hundred
72 / THE MONSEY VIEW / May 13, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
shekels. Believe me, Meir, that it doesn’t make me particularly happy.” And it was not only because he had hoped to save up a larger sum of money before going back to that building to look for the owners of the envelope — and to hear how much money had been in there. Elisheva leaned on the door of the room. “There’s cake and coffee waiting for you, Binyamin,” she called, smiling at him. Was he only imagining that she was blinking faster than usual? He followed her to the kitchen and sat down at the table, which was covered with a white tablecloth. Everything was gleaming, and the aroma of Friday lunch wafted from the stovetop. “I overheard what you told the boys,” his mother said, sit-

Can you make that much from learning mishnayos at night?” He raised his head from his cup and studied her; her face was expressionless, or rather, was an attempt to look expressionless. “It only happened a few times,” he said in a restrained tone. She lowered her eyes to the tablecloth, as though there was nothing more interesting going on right now than the white lace design. After a long moment, she raised her eyes. “Perhaps we’ll talk about that another time. But Mrs. Hartstein feels terrible about the whole story.”
“Mrs. Hartstein?” “The woman from the silver yad.” “The silver yad?” “That we found under the fridge.” “Huh? What does that have to do with the mishnayos that I went to learn?” You mean, with the money that you went to earn, she wanted to say. Instead, she answered, “That’s what was in the envelope that Mrs. Hartstein gave you.” “The silver yad was in the envelope?! And it had been in the house the entire time?” He didn’t touch his cup of coffee. “In the house? I was sure it had fallen out in yeshivah or on the street, and that someone had found it while cleaning up and had taken it!” “Well, no, it was in our old house.” “But how did it get under the fridge? I’m sure that I didn’t take it out of my jacket as long as I was in the house, and my jacket wasn’t in the kitchen at all. It was the day I had the flu, remember?” His tone was apologetic and confused all at once. “You know how the little ones like to play with your jacket, Binyamin. They must have taken it to the kitchen. I need to ask whoever it was that found the yad — Bentzy, I think — how it got out of the envelope.” “The envelope probably tore.” He stood up, then sat back down. “Come on, eat,” his mother said. “Yes…” He made a bracha and tasted a few crumbs. “The question is why you didn’t go back to Mrs. Hartstein. She gave you something to watch, that something disappeared, and you don’t go to ask what it was? To apologize? To speak to them about what to do next?” “I wanted to save up some money before going back there, so I should have what to repay her with...

case what I was watching got lost, I would be exempt from paying it back. But I would have had to pay anyway, because in order to be exempt I would need to make a shvuah.” “You don’t need to pay or make a shvuah now,” his mother said, and some of her trademark warmth and softness returned to her voice and movements. “The yad was found. But you can’t disappear from someone like that, Binyamin,” she added quietly. “It’s not the way to do things. Why didn’t you come to me about it?” “How could I have done that?” He swallowed. “Was I supposed to have burdened you and Tatty with this problem, too?”

“Which hand do you choose?” Janek Cohen asked. Ulush raised a pair of surprised eyes to him. Surah had cried all night, and only at dawn had Ulush reached the conclusion that it was not hunger (the baby had pushed away the bottle), and not the cold (there was enough wood in the oven, and the small blanket was heavy enough), and it wasn’t thirst or fever. It was her mother’s mood, which undoubtedly was having an effect on the ten-month-old tot. This loneliness, the isolation that felt even worse among millions of people, was intolerable. Janek’s cousin had turned out to be very kind when they’d come to New York seven months earlier, exhausted from their journey. He had hosted them in his home for a week and a half, but his wife had begun to show signs of irritation, which only mounted as time went on. One afternoon, Ulush had gotten up, packed their two suitcases, and asked Janek to go and find them a room to rent. He understood her. What was there for her to look for in this city? She had only Janek and Surah. Not a single person from Slovakia lived anywhere near them. When she went out on the street,
she didn’t know a soul — and no one knew her. “Which hand?” Janek repeated patiently. “Right,” Ulush chose. “A letter.” Her husband smiled. “You chose a letter from Edo.” “Edo sent another letter? How lovely! I love reading what he writes!” She took the envelope and turned it over, slowly reading the Hebrew words on the side of the sender. Suddenly she noticed that Janek was still standing in front of her, his left hand behind his back and a mischievous spark in his eyes. “You didn’t tell me I could choose another hand, too,” she said, smiling. “Try.” “Okay, so… left.” He ceremoniously handed over another envelope. “A letter from… Gustav?” she asked in shock. “Yes. Two letters came at once. Read it; I’ll hold Surah.” She opened Edo’s envelope, and out of the corner of her eyes, she noticed her baby giggling in Janek’s arms. Her eyes scanned the lines, and a smile slowly spread across her face. “Sweet,” she said, when she finished reading it. Her eyes glistened. “I would bring him here to us, if I could. He writes so nicely, thanking us again as if it’s the first letter he’s sending. Oy, if I would have money, I’d buy him a ticket to come to us right away; I see that he’s lonely there in Eretz Yisroel.” “And what does Gustav say? Where was he sent from the ship?” She put down one envelope and picked up the other. “He’s also so alone there…” she said with a sigh, a few minutes later. “They sent him to an orphanage in Yerushalayim. But he has a nice counselor.” She perused the letter. “He was disappointed that Edo wasn’t there, because he wants to meet up with him. Maybe we can try and arrange something from here, get them to be placed together? Why is each one alone?” To be continued...

Biden Campaign’s Tampa Event Results in Failure THE PULSE: In an attempt to shore up his visibility, the Biden campaign rolled out a virtual event with swing-state voters in Tampa, Florida. The event was billed as a rally and featured Florida State Senator Janet Cruz and former Florida Republican Governor turned independent, turned Democrat, Charlie Crist. However, the rally did not unfold as planned. There were technical difficulties throughout and many awkward moments. At times, featured speakers did not appear to realize that they were already live, images appeared pixelated, and voice and sound tended to fade. Joe Biden seemed to recognize the problems when he told the audience that “I wish we could have done
78 / THE MONSEY VIEW / May 13, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
this together, and it had gone a little more smoothly.” The Tampa Bay Times reported that the event “didn’t go great.” The Trump campaign wasted no time drawing attention to Biden’s failure. Trump campaign spokeswoman Emma Vaughn put out a statement that “Joe Biden’s ‘virtual rally’ was a fundamentally unserious comedy of errors that displayed the depths of his campaign’s incompetency.” THE IMPACT: The Biden campaign finds itself in an
unprecedented quandary. Running an active campaign in the age of quarantine is unchartered territory. President Trump receives constant public exposure in his day-to-day handling of the virus. Joe Biden remains confined to his home and is unable to hold rallies or otherwise interact with the public. Being
that Biden does not hold public office, he tends to be overshadowed by other leading Democrats, such as New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The Trump campaign attempts to portray Biden as old, frail and past his prime. His lack of public exposure helps to feed that narrative. Biden continues to lead Trump in much of the polling, but it will be a challenge for him to show the American people that he is active and vibrant and capable of holding the highest office in the land.
Trump Campaign Considering Drive-In Rallies THE PULSE: According to multiple reports, the Trump
campaign is considering drive-in rallies. These rallies would allow the president to address the crowd either live or by video while those in attendance remain parked in their cars. The president thrives on large gatherings, and such a format may provide him with the ability to continue reaching out to his supporters and bring a sense of excitement and passion to his base. THE IMPACT: The drive-in rally concept has a real allure; however, the Trump campaign will need to address numerous logistical difficulties for it to become a reality. Trump rallies frequently draw thousands of participants, but most outdoor venues that are capable of hosting drive-in events cannot hold more than a few hundred cars. Additionally, such sites are often distant from urban centers and are not always easily accessible. The Secret Service will also need to ensure that vehicles are properly inspected and that all occupants are thoroughly vetted. Concession and restroom availability may also prove to be a challenge in the era of COVID-19 transmission.
Obama and Trump Tussle Over COVID-19 Response and Michael Flynn THE PULSE: In a private call with Democratic party operatives, former President Barack Obama criticized the Trump administration’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. He referred to the Trump administration’s response as “an absolute chaotic disaster.” He also criticized the decision of the Justice Department to drop charges against former National Security Director Michael Flynn. Obama said that “our basic understanding of rule of law is at risk.” President Trump wasted no time in hitting back and accused Obama of committing “the biggest political crime in American history” by al-
legedly having “used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration.” THE IMPACT: Many Americans have become accustomed to such overheated political rhetoric and have learned to discount it. Unfortunately, such rhetoric mainly serves to enrage those who are already convinced of the justness of their cause. It does nothing to change minds or encourage critical thinking. General Michael Flynn lied to the FBI and VP Mike Pence. His lies put him at risk of blackmail from the foreign governments that were aware of his deceit. Flynn admitted to his crimes and pleaded guilty. Recently released FBI memos showed that FBI investigators had contemplated setting up Flynn to lie. The details of the FBI memo are troubling, and this led to the Justice Department’s decision to dismiss the charges against Flynn. Unfortunately, such tactics are not limited to Michael Flynn and are apparently frequently used by law enforcement agencies. Many partisans on the right chose to ignore Flynn’s crimes, and the partisans on the left tend to ignore the worrisome actions of the FBI.
The Butterfield Effect and COVID-19 OPINION: In the 1990s, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and New York Times writer Fox Butterfield penned a series of articles addressing the apparent paradox of why incarceration rates were rising during a period when crime rates were falling. The Wall Street Journal opinion columnist James Taranto pointed out that perhaps the reason crime rates decreased was that more criminals were now behind bars. He coined the term “Butterfield Effect” to describe the failure to recognize the success of policy and to invert proper cause and effect. Writing for The Bulwark, Robert Tracinski points out that today we risk a COVID-19 version of the “Butterfield Effect.” The policies of social distancing have helped to flatten the curve, lower the death rate, and prevent hospitals from becoming overwhelmed. Now, due to the success of these policies, some see the COVID-19 restrictions as alarmist and unnecessary. Hospital capacity did not max out, and worst-case scenarios did not materialize, so therefore, social distancing is an undue burden according to this line of faulty logic. The economy must reopen, but the success of the policies of mitigation must not lead to a false sense of complacency. Politicians and government officials will struggle to find the right balance. The success or failure of these policies will impact lives, the economy and political fortunes.

Walk into a baby nursery in any hospital, and even at this newborn stage, you’ll be able to pick out countless differences between the babies. Some are dark, some light; some are long, some short — and there’s everything in between. Some will be shrieking, others whimpering quietly, and yet others sleeping peacefully. Black hair, blonde hair, brown hair and maybe even a redhead! Of course, as babies mature and develop into children — and eventually, adults — physical, emotional, social and behavioral differences can be observed in all areas. To us, as parents, it means that each child has their own appearance, emotions, needs, behaviors and habits, all of which we want to cultivate in healthy ways.
This will allow our children to harness their individual qualities in a manner that will help them become responsible and confident adults with distinct personalities. Attitudes based on beliefs in food and diet culture have led to unfair and unreasonable expectations of our children. As a result, we can
THE MONSEY VIEW / 97
unintentionally overlook our children’s uniqueness and promote unhealthy food habits and behaviors simply by advocating for mistaken standards that society has set. Children can present us with differences in their tastes, physical build and eating habits. Let us explore these and find out how we can validate and celebrate these differences in order to build healthy food habits for life!
Differences in Taste
If children are taught that they can gently refuse foods in a polite way and that there is zero pressure on them to eat, they are more likely to experiment and interact with FOODS.
Humans experience food mainly through taste and texture; therefore, the types of food that we select depends directly on the pleasing sensations they cause in our mouths. Many factors can influence the sensations that we experience, including age, gender, genetic variations, food exposures and conditioned responses. Normally, children’s taste buds are more perceptive than their adult counterparts — the reason they may have a greater aversion to strong tastes and textures. Consequently, they may refuse to eat or even try unknown foods. By consistently exposing children to all foods, including those with strong tastes and those that they dislike, children can interact with the foods and maybe even learn to like them. We may find authentic cultural foods too spicy or too exotic for even our adult palates, yet children who grow up in these cultures eat those same foods with no issue, as they were exposed to these tastes since birth. Similarly, if we consistently serve the foods that aren’t preferred, children get a chance to interact with and experience these foods, so that they become part of their tolerated, or even liked, foods. PROP tasters are people with the genetic variation that causes bitter flavors to be sensed more strongly than the same flavors in non-PROP tasters. They generally don’t like black coffee, grapefruit and bitter vegetables like cabbage, cauliflower and broccoli. Some people are PROP and non-PROP tasters and are more okay with some of the bitter compounds over others. Thus, some children, depending on their genetic makeup, will tolerate bitter foods better than others. Additionally, as parents, part of our feeding responsibilities is managing when children respond to foods impulsively. If children are taught that they can gently refuse foods in a polite way and that there is zero pressure on them to eat, they are more likely to experiment and interact with foods, leading to less aversions and more pleasurable experiences when eating.
98 / THE MONSEY VIEW / May 13, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
Child keeps selecting safe foods, like potatoes, pasta, meat and cucumbers from their plates, ignoring broccoli, oranges and other strong-tasting foods. Keep serving the strong-tasting foods alongside the safe foods. Keeping portions of the strong-tasting foods smaller makes it less overwhelming for the child to possibly try them. Child says that a specific food is “yuck!” Tell your child that they don’t have to eat the food, but they can’t talk this way about food. Child refuses to try new or strange foods. Tell your child that they don’t have to eat the food, but encourage them to touch, smell and lick the food (in this order).
Physical Differences Your child’s hair or eye color does not affect their inherent worth or what you think of them. So, too, body size, height or shape has no influence on their worth and should not be used to judge them. Just as hair and eye color are genetically predisposed, often body size, height or shape is a result of genes! Society has us believe that thinness is health, power and beauty. This is actually not true (and explaining why is beyond the scope of this article). Promoting body positivity and acceptance, rather than an unattainable model of thinness, allows your child to blossom and flourish emotionally, physically and mentally. Research studies have shown that disparaging comments about bodies promote disordered eating habits, low self-esteem and emotional dysregulation. We want our children to know that all bodies are good bodies, and that despite what others may try to convince them, being confident, healthy and happy is what counts more than any of society’s beauty standards.

What every child wants to hear in order to respect, validate and celebrate their uniqueness: • I love you and accept you. • I love you no matter what! • You are great at… • I love how you did… • I’m so happy that you… • Wow, that’s tough!
48 Route 59 Monsey, NY May 13, 2020 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 99 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
Children are vessels for love. Tell them that you love them unconditionally, because they are who they are. Give heartfelt compliments that praise the way they are, and focus on humanity instead of appearance. Validate their feelings and insecurities about their bodies, and just listen! Likewise, children learn from their parents, who are their role models, so shower yourself with self-love in their presence. Think about the message that your diet and body-image talk is sending to your kids.
Since we are our children’s role models, it makes them feel safe to hear that their parents respect and celebrate themselves! What every child wants to hear you say about yourself: • I eat healthily because I care about how I feel (if true). • I enjoy the foods that I eat! • I love myself and accept myself.
Differences in Eating Habits
One would think that every child should eat more or less the same amounts of food, and that their diet wouldn’t vary much from one day to the next. But as any veteran parent will tell you, different children need different amounts of food, and the amount consumed for each child can vary even from one day to the next. Kids are intuitive eaters, which means they will eat as much as they need of each food on each day. Even if they may seem to eat a very unbalanced meal, they will balance out their intake over days, weeks and even months. To respect that, we cannot tell our children how much or what they must eat, as over a long period of time, this can encourage disordered eating habits. We can reiterate the need for children to be mindful of their hunger and fullness level so they can use them to gauge how much they should eat. Some of the ways to encourage healthy eating habits, by being mindful of hunger and fullness, are creating scheduled meal and snack times and making mealtime family time. In the same vein, some kids have more challenging sensory needs than others, and will touch, squish or throw foods. They may also be more sensitive to color and smell. Respecting that means not forcing the kid to eat something they don’t like, yet also stating and reinforcing age-appropriate boundaries to teach them manners and etiquette. When we celebrate our children and treat their needs with respect, we give them the gifts of self-esteem, emotional regulation and the ability to make healthy choices.

can fill an entire ledger with my parenting wrongs; can fill entire nights with regrets over heated words and hasty actions and should-have-nots. But there’s one thing I pride myself with: I don’t lie to my children. I’ve witnessed too many scenes that left me cringing, heard too many mothers weave terrifying tales to make their children do what they must: stories of shelters for children who won’t go to sleep, surgeons for children who won’t eat. I’d wince, pained at this exploitation of the innocence of youth. And each time I’d vow that this was one thing I would never do. I won’t lie to my children. My word is my word. And then, after one exhausting afternoon, I was standing over the bathtub, dripping from another deluge that had hit me in the face, wondering how I could possibly get the energetic splashers not only to bed, but actually in a slumbering state — their shampooed hair spread across their pillows instead of trapped in their siblings’ tight grasps, their eyes sweetly closed instead of gleaming with mischief. And I needed to do it fast, before I’d melt into a puddle of stress on the floor and simply cease to exist. I had no fighting power left in me (the reason there were three kids in one bathtub to begin with); it was all in shambles together with the Legos on the hallway floor and the untouched supper plates on the table. I sat down on the low bathtub wall, leaning against the tiles, and closed my eyes. I let the droplets drip down and in, let the squeals cascade over me. Let the steamy, soapy air engulf me, course through my blood, heat my insides. The heat rose to my face and finally exploded. “Kids!” I let out a bellow, waving a towel in their direction. “Out of the bath. NOW!” The towel was tugged out of my hand, steeped in bathwater, and positioned on the ocean floor. I stood helplessly, tears (maybe just condensation?) fighting their way against my eyelids. My mouth

opened and closed, thousands of threats, and bribes, storming my brain. And I did what I promised I never would do. “If you’re not out of the bath before I finish counting to ten,” I said in my spookiest voice, “Mommy is gonna call the Sleep Police.” And I waved the phone at the three little people whose attention I finally had. “What’s the Sleep Police, Mommy?” “The Sleep Police,” I slowly, slowly said, “is a special policeman who comes to the house of children who do not listen to Mommy when it’s time to go to bed.” “What does the Sleep Police do, Mommy?” one little mister asked as he lifted himself out of the bath. His siblings soon followed his lead. “The Sleep Police is very, very scary. I think you should get into your PJs right now, and get under your blankets. Because I am al-

most, almost going to call him!” As I watched a much more somber towel-clad crew rush to find their pajamas, my hopes soared — and my heart dropped. What had I done? I’d lied. Fabricated a tale. Exploited the trust and the precious innocence of my very own young ones. I stood at the window, looking out to the street, half hopeful that my kids would finally go to sleep, but beating myself up for the trick I’d played. There was no way I could still extricate myself from this mess. In the next few minutes my kids would either call my bluff, or they would, by some miracle, fall asleep, and I’d have what to regret all night. It was too late to take back the words. Down the hall, the titters were getting louder, and my very trained ears intercepted the slightest thump of the first pillow
being thrown. I was in a rut. And upset at myself. And annoyed at the kids who’d driven me to do this. And frustrated at my husband who really should have been helping me instead of being who-knewwhere.
I’d lied. Fabricated a tale. Exploited the trust and the precious innocence of my very own young ones. Crash. Wham. A stifled giggle. A louder shout. “Kids! Do you want me to...” I half-heartedly started. And then I saw the car. And I knew that this time I was going to be saved. “Oy!” I crossed over to their room. “Run into bed quickly! The Sleep Police is here!” “Really, Mommy? There’s really a policeman here?” They quivered under their blankets, too curious to resist peeking out. I no longer even cared whether they were ready to sleep or not. Because I heard the sound of the front door opening. “The Sleep Police is here,” I shout-whispered, a hint of a smile on my lips. Footsteps came down the hall. “Tatty!” three tremulous voices squealed. “Tatty is the Sleep Police!” “Yes, Tatty is the Sleep Police,” I affirmed as I ducked out through the doorway. Quietly, stealthily, I tiptoed down the hallway — to prepare myself a warm, sweet glass of coffee, and to renew a sacred vow.

What Is Occupational Therapy (OT)?
Some Facts About Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD)
• Although it may sound like it, OT is not about finding people jobs, or occupations.
• SPD Affects 1 in 20 preschool kids, and 16% of school-aged kids.
• An OT will assist an individual to become as successful as possible despite limitations and/or disabilities (whether physical, cognitive or mental) to achieve the life they want to live to be as independent as possible. This may entail use of adaptive equipment. • OT is one of the most diverse professions out there. We work in hospitals, schools, private practice, mental health facilities, outpatient clinics, sensory gyms and even burn units! • While physical therapy’s main focus is strength and movement, OT’s main focus is always to cultivate independence. Both professions are extremely important in treating individual limitations, and often there is a team approach. • OT is the only in-hospital “spending category” that has been shown to lead to better patient outcomes and therefore less chance of readmission, as seen in a 2017 Study published by Johns Hopkins University. • OT’s primary goal is cultivating independence and function that will help individuals throughout their lifetime. This is always the end goal! A favorite saying in OT is, “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.”
112 / THE MONSEY VIEW
• 40% of children with SPD also have ADHD. • Children with SPD often misinterpret signals from their environment or body. • There are three main subtypes of SPD: Sensory Modulation Disorder (SMD), Sensory Discrimination Disorder (SDD) and Sensory-Based Motor disorder (SBMD). • Children with SMD may be either hypersensitive or hyposensitive to any of the senses — or sometimes both, even to the same sense, which can make diagnosis confusing. • Children with SDD often find the world a confusing or scary place due to their inability to discriminate between certain sounds, smells and touch, making their behavior very unpredictable. This subtype is rarely found alone and usually comes along with other sensory symptoms. • Children with SBMD often have poor motor and postural skills based on sensory input, and they often have trouble with joint stabilization, performing certain movements and are often clumsy. These kids often reach their milestones late and have difficulty with learning to ride a bike or sports games. • Early diagnosis of SPD, with frequent and intense intervention, leads to better outcomes. • Patricia Wilbarger was an OT and clinical psychologist who coined the term “sensory diet” and came up with the famous “Wilbarger Brushing Protocol,” or therapeutic brushing technique. Further information on SPD can be found on SPD.org or by reading the “The Out-of-Sync Child” or “Sensational Kids.”
History of OT • As far back as ancient times, some OT techniques were already used by Greek physicians for treatment of mental illnesses. • Occupational Therapy (OT) emerged as a profession in the year 1917 by three men and three women (three years before women were allowed to vote!). It was officially coined Occupational Therapy in 1921. • Initially, OT played a role in treating patients with diseases like polio and tuberculosis. • Even though children are a major patient group in OT today, OTs didn’t begin working with children until the mid 20th century. • Dr. Jean Ayres pioneered the study of Sensory Processing Disorder in the early 1970s.

Some SensorySmart Activities Did you know there are eight senses, not just five? They include tactile (touch), olfactory (smell), auditory, visual and gustatory (taste), as well as proprioception, vestibular and interoception.
VESTIBUL AR SENSE
is our sense of movement. Activities that are rhythmic are calming and can help improve a person’s focus and attention span. Movement that is not rhythmic can raise alertness levels. Vestibular input is the strongest of all the senses and can have lasting effects of as long as 6 to 8 hours after sustained activity! Try it at home! Trampolines (mini ones are safer) Backyard swings Pogo sticks Large therapy balls Bikes and scooters
is our sense of touch. Deep-pressure touch releases dopamine and serotonin, both feel-good chemicals. Try it at home! Texture play such as shaving cream or Mr. Bubble foam soap Rice or sand play with hidden objects Water play with large sponges or squirters Orbeez water beads Deep-pressure massage by parent on child’s back or feet Weighted blankets or weighted vests (can be found online) — recommended weight is 5% to 10% of body weight
114 / THE MONSEY VIEW / May 13, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
is our sense of where we are in space; its receptors are located in our joints. Proprioceptive activities usually include “heavy work” activities that often improve muscle strength and release serotonin, a calming chemical in the body.
is our sense of smell.
Try it at home! Climbing monkey bars, or even just hanging from one for a period of time Wheelbarrow walking Commando crawling on belly Animal walking, e.g., crab walking, bear walking, etc.
Try it at home! Use aromatherapy candles in the house to set the mood. Introduce diffusers with essential oils; lavender to induce calm, and peppermint and lemon to raise alertness levels.
Scooter boards on belly Wall push-ups, chair push-ups Weightlifting, for older teens or adults THE
AUDITORY SENSE THE
is our hearing sense. SENSE
is our sense of sight. Try it at home! Mazes, dot-to-dots and coloring within the lines Eye-hand coordination games, such as ball games, tracing and cutting objects Visual perceptual games, such as Mastermind, Rush Hour and puzzles Make sure to check your child’s eye health, and be aware of common visual problems. Headaches, skipping words or lines while reading, double vision or other visual complaints may need further evaluation by an optometrist or developmental optometrist.
Try it at home! Turn on calming music in the background; play fun or more upbeat music when trying to increase energy in the household. Be mindful of children who are hypersensitive, and remember to respect their sensory needs.
May 13, 2020 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 115 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
is our sense of taste.
is our sense of our internal environment, such as hunger, thirst or when we feel tired. It also alerts us when our bladder is full and when we’re upset or happy.
Try it at home! Crunchy pretzels, carrots and sugar-free gum can provide proprioceptive input to the jaw and can help with focus and self-regulation. Peppermint candies or sour foods are alerting and can also help desensitize mouths of picky eaters.
Areas in Which OT Can Help • Fine motor skills, including pencil grasp • Handwriting problems • Visual perceptual/motor skills • Oculomotor dysfunction and visual deficits • Sensory integration • Reflex integration (some OTs have special training in this area) • Social skills • Motor skills and praxis skills • Coordination skills • Overall strengthening toward a specific goal
116 / THE MONSEY VIEW / May 13, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
Try it at home! Mindfulness activities can help a child or adult become more self-aware and correctly identify a feeling, and then connect the feeling or signal to an appropriate action.
Matters To Be Mindful Of • Each developmental milestone is crucial to your child’s development. Allow your infant to move and engage with their world! Tummy time is essential for the development of your infant’s neck, upper body and back muscles and helps develop and integrate their primitive reflexes. Each milestone successfully achieved by the infant helps lead to the next one. • Exersaucers and infant seats are necessary, but not recommended for extended periods of time. • Crawling in a typical quadruped pattern is important, because it allows the child to use his body in a contralateral pattern, which is important for reflex integration and development of future skills! Try to avoid scooter crawling or atypical patterns by allowing as much tummy time as possible after birth and throughout infancy. • Hug and cuddle your baby, infant and child as much as possible. This allows them to feel comfortable with touch and promotes parent-child bonding and secure attachment. Touch and cuddling is especially important for the newborn immediately after birth and in the first several months, but it continues throughout life. • Never force a child into any kind of activity. If something seems worrisome, seek a professional’s advice! And trust your gut.

Shavuos is coming, and what can be more satisfying than creating magnificent milchig goodies? So you’ve got your cheesecake, all baked and ready, staring at you like a blank slate. How to decorate this thing and make it look beautiful and delectable at the same time? With just a couple of ingredients and little time, you can have a masterpiece to be proud of! Start by heating 6 tablespoons of heavy cream (whole milk also works well) in the microwave for about 45 seconds. While the cream is heating, break up two bars of dairy chocolate in a heatproof dish. Once the heavy cream is hot, pour it over the chocolate and let stand for 1 minute. Stir the mixture until all the chocolate is melted and you have a smooth glaze. If needed, microwave at 15 second intervals until all chocolate is melted and smooth. You now have two options:
You can leave the glaze to cool for a couple of hours until it’s firm. Once it’s cooled, you can pipe it onto the cheesecake using a star tip. Another option is to pour the glaze over the cake while it is still warm. Begin at the center and move outward until you reach the edge. To get a beautiful drip effect, put approximately ¼ cup of the glaze into a squeeze bottle (or a Ziploc bag with a small hole). Move the bottle around the edge of the cake, squeezing a bit of the glaze wherever you’d like a drip. Squeeze a little for a short drip and more for a longer drip. Now that you have a beautifully glazed cake, here’s how to easily make a statement: Melt half a bar of white dairy chocolate. Place into a squeeze bottle (or Ziploc bag with a small hole). Along one side of the cake, start drizzling the chocolate onto the cheesecake back and forth a few times. Next, do the same at the top. Take a few Kliks balls and place them around strategically for a sleek, tempting look.

More Cheesecake Tips • Want a crack-free cheesecake? Place your cheesecake pan into a larger pan filled halfway with water and bake as directed. Allow to cool in the oven.
Cappuccino Pops Cheesecake flopped? Mix it with crumbs, and using a small cookie scoop, scoop small balls onto a cookie sheet. Stick a lollipop stick into each ball and freeze overnight. Melt two bars of dairy chocolate with 2 tablespoons oil. When melted, add in almond brittle. Remove the frozen lollipops from the freezer and dip them into the chocolate.
• Oops! Cheesecake cracked? Once the cake has cooled in the fridge, fill the crack with sour cream or glaze. • To get the best flavor from your cheesecake or babka, serve it out of the fridge after letting it sit for approximately 15 to 30 minutes.
Just Jar It! Want to give your dessert an instant upgrade? Just jar it! Place some cake in an individual container or jar (even leftover cake will do). Top with a dollop of cream, and voila — an upscale dessert! Add a mini spoon for an added bonus.
To Better the Babka Here’s how to get a perfectly level cheese babka: After rolling up the dough, cut it in half, and twist one thin end with one thick end. When placing it into the pan, make sure it fills the pan fully so it rises evenly.

For about eight weeks since Purim, our entire existence was confined to the ten people living in our home. Ever since school “resumed,” however, we have been getting little reminders of other human beings living somewhere on the same planet as we are. Namely, my children’s teachers. Suddenly they have a say in what our day is going to be like! (I admit that’s not always a bad thing.) 126 / THE MONSEY VIEW / May 13, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
One piece of homework that my teenage daughter received from her teacher involved coming up with five things that this corona situation has taught her. My daughter, wise girl that she is, has been using the rare advantage of having bored family members around to help get some of her schoolwork done. And so, she presented us all with this question around the supper table one day. It didn’t take anyone long to think. “Caring for others!” was the eight-year-old’s contribution, honed further by the sixteen-year-old: “Being willing to go to huge extents and even stay confined at home for months for people we might not even know.” “Listening to gedolim!” by the ten-year-old was followed by: “Yeah, especially when their psak is that you shouldn’t go to school!” and shared laughter. Humor aside, I was astonished and more than a little moved at the profound insights that continued to flow as the kids warmed up to the challenge. It was a true nachas moment. My thirteen-year-old, her eyes narrowed in contemplation, said, “What I learned was just how powerful one silly action can be. I mean, a guy just ate something, and look at what he did to the entire world! This means that we could never imagine just how far one action can go, and we’ll never really know which action it would be, either!” And she’s right. I think we all thought of that idea at some point or another over the last few weeks. My husband then shared the image that he envisions whenever he thinks of this concept. Chazal tell us that a person should always view the entire world as though it is exactly 50-50 — half zakai, half chayav. And our one action will determine
which way the scales will tilt. One action! I don’t know about you, but I’ve learned this concept in elementary school, and multiple times since then as well. But never has this imagery been so poignant, so believable, as it is now, when Hashem has shown it to us in the most literal way possible. It’s a concept that we can apply to almost every area of our lives, and most importantly (and obviously), to our avodas Hashem. But since this essay is supposed to be about Camp Corona, I’ll tell you how I applied this insight to our camp. Every day, when we drag ourselves out of bed to begin another long, long day of keeping the children occupied in the same four walls that are slowly becoming more and more claustrophobic, we have a choice. It’s not about the situation, or our kids’ moods, or what we happen to have planned — or not — for this day. It’s about one thing: me. My one action as I step into this new day. Sometimes we mothers forget how powerful we are in our children’s worlds. The children only seem to be doing their own thing as we move about our day around them. In reality, their eyes and ears are constantly attuned to us and to our attitudes. As we begin another day, or another hour or minute of the day, we are in fact standing at a crossroads. Our children’s experience is completely pareve. We are the ones who can tilt the scale and determine what kind of day this is going to be — and what kind of experience this entire corona period is going to be for them. We can let the day drag us to wherever it takes us (and I don’t know about you, but that usually doesn’t end up being the prettiest place). Or we can decide to be mature and make the decision ourselves. To put a huge smile on our face, a bounce in our voice, enthusiasm in our movements — and tilt the scale deep down to where we want it to go.
I read this one on our local community list, and it indeed proved to be so much fun that I sat down that very night and shared it with every mother I know:
Homemade Moon-Bounce! You will need a pack of balloons (preferably around 100 pieces) and a duvet cover. Blow up all of the balloons. Fill the duvet cover completely. (Since we had only 50 balloons on hand, we tied up the ends of the duvet cover to make it a bit smaller.) Now let the fun begin! Believe me, you will not need to tell the kids what to do. This surface absolutely invites lying, rolling, rocking, climbing and squishing. You will be very, very tempted to join them yourself! NOTE: The balloons will probably take longer to pop than you expect them to, but since sharp movements and jumping will cause some of them to pop, try to begin with softer use first, and let the jumping commence later, once the kids have had their fill of sensory fun.

With BPA-free baby bottles and little glass jars of pureed vegetables iconic of the current era’s baby food scene, it’s hard to believe that previous generations once lacked these near-necessities. But the truth is that the whats, whens, and hows of feeding little ones in bygone eras and various locales would be shocking to modern-day parents.
Filling Up Hungry Little Tummies Infant foods used as a replacement to maternal milk were sorely lacking throughout history, often missing vital nutrients required by the human child. They were also often made with animal milk that wasn’t pasteurized, leading frequently to illness. Summertime, especially, was known to have a high infant mortality rate, due to the rapid pace at which milk would spoil. In ancient Egypt it was recommended that cow’s milk and boiled wheat kernels be mixed together and fed to the infant for whom maternal milk was unavailable. Over in Rome, a physician of renown advised that foods such as breadcrumbs soaked in wine or milk be introduced to an infant’s diet from the age of six months.
The Mechanics of the Meal Some of the earliest discovered feeding vessels for infants were made from clay and featured a small spout for liquid to drip from, drop by drop. Some of the findings had been designed in the shape of animals, perhaps in the attempt to delight the hungry little ones. Cow horn bottles were common in the Middle Ages. The narrower end of the horn would be perforated, and parchment or cloth would be placed over the opening to slow the speed of the emerging liquid. Babies of the Victorian era (1837–1901) were often fed with uber-popular glass or earthenware bottles with rubber tubing that allowed the child to suck liquid from within the bottle. This apparatus was difficult to clean and
Pap, a mushy meal consisting of bread or flour cooked in water or milk, was a common way of feeding non-nursing infants in the 16th to 18th centuries. This was especially prevalent among the upper crust who often saw their babies only once a day or so, leaving their child in charge of the nanny at all other times. The pap boat was the feeder of choice, and upper-class babes often had ones with elaborate designs. It wasn’t until well into the 1900s that more complex infant formulas, which were able to provide adequate nutrients for a human child, became available.

allowed dangrous bacteria to breed, earning the bottles the monikers of “killer bottles” or “murder bottles.” During that era, the infant mortality rate skyrocketed, with only two out of ten infants reaching their second birthday — the bottles largely to blame. The first ban against them was enacted in Buffalo, New York, in 1897, though they could still be found in circulation until 1920.
Gerber Little Sally Gerber was ill, and her doctor recommended a diet of strained fruits and vegetables. This type of food prep was time-consuming and strenuous, and Sally’s mother desperately sought an easier way to feed her child. That’s when she had the brainstorm to use her father-inlaw’s canning company to prepare the food for Sally. A short time later, in 1928, the family business had dabbled enough in baby foods that they decided to pivot their focus and create a commercial line of infant foods. The Fremont Canning Company changed their name in 1941 to become the now well-known Gerber Products Company. Gerber’s first baby foods were strained peas, prunes, carrots, spinach and vegetable beef soup.
In 1894, the first “banana feeder” was introduced to the public, being touted as easier to clean and safer than previous options. This type of bottle sold well until the 1950s. Pyrex introduced the first straight-walled heat-resistant glass baby bottle in 1924. Around the 1960s, the first plastic bottles came into being… and as they say, the rest is history.
In 1974, Gerber released a new product line called Gerber Singles. It was marketed to young unmarrieds as a quick no-cook meal, but being rather similar to the pureed baby food in the infant jars, the product line flopped… On the other hand, the baby food diet fad, which was popular some ten years ago, encouraged adults to eat fourteen jars of baby food per day, and only one chewable meal… Go figure.
One study found that the average American baby eats around 600 jars of commercial baby food by the time he is a year old. After more than 100 reports scattered across more than 30 states reported glass shards in Gerber baby foods in 1986, Gerber released a statement that parents should be vigilant about listening for the “pop” sound of their vacuum-packed pop-top lids. This ensures (or greatly raises the chances) that a baby jar hasn’t been tampered with. Squeezable pouches are the newest baby food fad to hit the market. These pouches allow babies to easily feed themselves, as well as keep the contents uncontaminated as the food can be squeezed onto a spoon, with whatever remains safely stored away for later.
