THANK YOU, DR. SIMCKES! When my daughter fell off her bike and knocked out her front teeth, I was at a loss. She was in terrible pain, and time was of essence if I wanted to save her teeth, but I could not get through to her dentist. I called my family dentist, hoping to get an emergency appointment, but he refused to see my child. Desperate, I called Hatzoloh, who advised me to contact Dr. Simckes on his personal cell phone. Since he was out of town, he couldn’t see my daughter, but he took the time to listen, advise, and to refer me to someone who could help, despite the fact that my daughter is not his patient! He even encouraged me to call back for any additional information I may need. Thank you from the bottom of my heart; your kindness to another Yid in a time of need was something that touched me so. We will be forever grateful and remember this chesed. R.I.
all your needs.
THE FIRST CHOICE FOR BABY
M&S SHOE REPAIR
MUMOIN CHECK CASHING
(Re: FYI – Baby Food, Issue 248) It was very interesting to read about how baby food has changed over the years. I wanted to point out that one very crucial piece of information was missing, especially as far as the kosher consumer is concerned. In the past, mothers had to rely on either homemade baby food or baby jars that might not have been on par with their kashrus standards. Today, Yiddishe mothers no longer have to compromise when supplementing their babies’ nutrition. For me, it was a big bracha to discover several years ago that there was finally a baby food company that had a heimishe hechsher. Thank you, First Choice, for making life so much more comfortable and easy for us! A Local Parent

(Re: A Celebration in Color, Issue 247) We look forward to The Monsey View every Wednesday. Your featured articles are always a delight to read and present a pleasant balance of information and humor. I also enjoy noticing the details that your graphic designer implements in the layout. We especially enjoy your weekly recipes. The instructions are clear, and the recipes are simple and fun and use standard ingredients, with heimishe hechsherim, that my local grocery carries. And the end results are as delicious as the pictures look! We’ve come to appreciate the simplicity and heimishe style as a breath of fresh air in comparison to what is being promoted in the world at large. This week, however, we were surprised to see the upsherin table spread. We were wondering if it was in line with the sidebar of the article Call us today and we will “The Yiddishe Yingele” that read, “I make your house look would never have been able to focus brand-new again! on the significance of this milestone while pulling off a grand event… Indeed when the external trappings are undone, it is so much easier to concentrate on what’s really happening.” I actually do love to patchke. I just feel that Yiddishe simchos have become a pressure versus a purely freiliche simcha saturated with the simple joy of the event taking place. Perhaps we should be investing this energy, not in elaborate spreads, but in preparing our upsherin yingele Fully with sipurei tzaddikim daily?

REPLICATING THE BAR (Re: A Celebration in Color, Issue 247) Thank you for an amazing publication! True to your mission statement, your magazine is enjoyed by all family members. Even my four-year-old son asks to read “the View”! We all love the interesting serial story, and I especially enjoy trying your recipes! F.C. Salamon’s upsherin display was beautifully presented, and we look forward to trying the taco bar idea. I was hoping to find included in the feature the recipe for the pickled onions, or information regarding where it can be purchased. I’ve tasted it in restaurants and always wondered how I can replicate it. Looking forward to your response, A Mother FRIMET CHANA SALAMON RESPONDS: A friend made these for me, which is the reason I did not include the recipe. Here are the basic instructions: Slice a red onion thinly, and mix it with ½ cup apple cider vinegar, some water, kosher salt and sugar. Place over heat until salt and sugar are dissolved. Let the mixture sit in a Ball jar for at least a day.
ONLY IN KLAL YISROEL I made upsherin during these turbulent times, and since there would be no guests and I wanted to make the occasion more festive, I was looking to order balloons for my son. I flipped open to the classifieds and called the number listed on the first ad I came across: Helium Balloons on Edwin. After discussing my options, I asked the woman I’d reached if she had a certain balloon. She didn’t, but immediately offered to refer me to someone else who might have what I was looking for. This was

after she’d spent some time on the phone with me, yet she still nonchalantly offered her competitors’ contact information! When I protested that it was fine — I was ready to settle on what she had in stock after taking so much of her time — she said, “No really, here, I have the list...” I was very impressed with her forthrightness and willingness to help. It delivered a real lesson in bitachon regarding parnassah — she knew that “sending” customers to competitors would not affect the money that was preordained for her! May it be a zechus for Klal Yisroel! H. Ludmir
DON’T GIVE UP HOPE! Being quarantined for weeks gives us bubbies a lot of time for reading and thinking and hoping for the Geulah Sheleimah. Yidden, please don’t stop davening and don’t give up hope. Moshiach may not have come on Pesach, nor on Pesach Sheini, but he is on the way. According to many sources, Galus Mitzrayim was supposed to be 430 years long, but Hashem redeemed us after 210 years. So the geulah came 220 years early. Our world is supposed to exist for not more than 6,000 years. We are now up to 5780 years, and there are 220 years left. Let us daven that Hashem will also take us out of this galus 220 years early, which means this year! Let’s not give up hope. R.L.

Just a few months ago, it would have been utterly preposterous to have contemplated making a chasunah in a house or a backyard, but the current situation is revealing a new joy. And we’re getting good at being simple! I feel the time is ripe for change. We’ve paid too heavy a price when trying to impress others with our chasunah expenditures escalating beyond anyone’s means. Unfortunately, we’ve been privy to weekly fundraising campaigns for baalei simcha, which robs an average wage-earner and his entire family of every vestige of pride. But today we’re discovering there’s a way to get our children married without destroying our financial health! Much has been discussed, initiatives have been suggested, but never have we come face to face with the knowledge that these proposed changes are actually easy to implement. A simple “home chasunah” has such a distinctive atmosphere of serenity — none of the hoopla and tumultuous chaos we’ve come to know, where one can hardly hear their own voice or remember guests who made a real effort to attend. I believe the chasanim and kallahs of 2020 are our trailblazing heroes and can be dubbed the pioneers of “Simchos of the Future,” trendsetters of real joy and harmony. The sooner we spring into action, the sooner we can make drastic changes for ourselves, our children, and all future generations. I hereby open the floor to you to suggest real, concrete ways to reset a new normal. Let’s be brutally honest as a community. Let’s have a real talk about changing for the better! We need change in the way we do tenoims, aufrufs, Shabbos sheva brachos, nightly sheva brachos, gowns, hairdos, actual night of wedding expenses, etc. Here’s to hoping for some real, open dialogue. Let’s go, Monsey! R.K.

PA RS H A S BAMIDBAR Torah Academy was a large school, with five parallel classes in each grade. Each of the five eighth grade teachers had a unique set of talents and skills that served her well. The teacher from Class A was skilled at putting together theatrical productions, so sheâ€™d often prepare short skits that tied into the lessons she taught. She was also responsible for the annual eighth grade production. The teacher from Class B was extremely artistic, and her bulletin boards, posters and handouts were enhanced by her masterful drawings. The teacher from Class C was quite intellectual, and she used her gift to put together study sheets that took the hardest subjects and broke them down in a way that students on all levels were able to understand. The teacher from Class D was musically inclined, so she often upped her lessons with songs whose lyrics were
catchy as well as educational. The teacher from Class E was an amazing baker, and she would find a way to incorporate her talent into her lessons. Everyone was amazed at how she had the girls weave dough to bake little baskets for Parshas Shemos, representing the basket that Moshe Rabbeinu was placed into as a baby. The teachers all respected each other greatly, but a bit of jealousy and rivalry developed. Each one would see the posters, hear the songs, or smell the baking, and feel a twinge of envy. Then, one day just after Sukkos, the principal made an announcement. The eight graders of all girlsâ€™ schools in their region would be working on a fair that was due to take place just before Purim. Each school would be assigned a topic relating to Purim, and they would each present the topic with posters, a baked item, a song, a play and a booklet that theyâ€™d distribute to explain their topic. Suddenly, the teachers were no longer jealous of each otherâ€™s gifts, but were grateful to have such a talented team. The teachers collaborated and divided the tasks according to each teacherâ€™s talents, developing strong feelings of closeness and unity as a result. Rather than seeing themselves as distinct individuals, as they once had, they now saw themselves as members of a unified team. It says in this weekâ€™s parsha, â€œIsh al diglo vâ€™osos lâ€™veis avosam yachanu bnei Yisroel mineged saviv lâ€™Ohel Moâ€™ed yachanu â€” The Bnei Yisroel shall encamp,
Because they now had the Mishkan at the center of their focus, the shevatim, with their unique qualities, became like the limbs of one body, working together for a common, holy purpose. each man by his division, with the flag of their fathersâ€™ house; a distance from the Ohel Moâ€™ed they shall encampâ€? (Bamidbar 2:2). At this point, Bnei Yisroel had been traveling together for more than a year since leaving Mitzrayim, as indicated a few pesukim earlier: â€œHashem spoke to Moshe in Midbar Sinai, in the Ohel Moâ€™ed, on the first day of the second month,

in the second year after leaving the land of Mitzrayim …” (Bamidbar 1:1). Only after a year of travel did Hashem arrange the shevatim according to their flags. Why did Hashem wait until this point to do so? Maran Harav Chaim Kanievsky, shlit”a, answers this question as follows. Camping according to the flags of the shevatim could bring an element of separation into Klal Yisroel. Each shevet had unique traits and talents that distinguished it from the other shevatim, and without the Mishkan, it would have been dangerous to arrange the camp according to the flags, because the separation could breed divisiveness, jealousy, competitiveness and strife. However, when the Mishkan was erected at the center of the encampments “on the first of Nissan in the second year,” this danger dissipated. The shevatim were now camped around the Mishkan, and the Mishkan was their common cause, unifying them. Because they now had the Mishkan at the center of their focus, the shevatim, with their unique qualities, became like the limbs of one body, working together for a common, holy purpose. Each and every one of us has a unique set of talents, gifts and life circumstances, all to help us fulfill our unique tafkid. If not for the fact that we were granted these gifts in order to fulfill Hashem’s will in this world, these distinctions could lead to jealousy and competition. However, if we center our lives on avodas Hashem, and if we focus on our role as members of Klal Yisroel rather than ourselves as isolated individuals, then our perspective shifts and we recognize that we are all limbs of one body. May we all strive to center our lives on the Torah, bringing peace to Klal Yisroel, and bracha and yeshuos to the world.

Despite the busy schedules they’re keeping these days, we had the honor and privilege to catch a few moments with the Hatzoloh Coordinators of Rockland County and hear how things have been going amidst the Covid 19 crisis. We appreciate the time they took to share some insights with us and want to extend a personal thank you to: Dovid KirschenbaumUnit 93, Shaya Licht- Unit 21, Shimon Silber- Unit 18, Yosef Lehman- Unit 57, Avrohom Boruch Rosenberg- Unit 29, Reuven Austerlitz- Unit 41, and Joshua Hans- Unit 59.
When was Hatzoloh of Rockland County founded? Hatzoloh of Rockland County was founded in 1977 and started out with nine members, whose training was an EMT course given by the state of NY.
Let’s contrast that to the Hatzoloh of today. We’ve come a long way in the 40-plus years since we’ve opened our doors to meet the growing needs of the community. We currently have over 200 members, including EMTs, paramedics, dispatchers and service units.
How does a potential member go from application to institution? An application is submitted to the Hatzoloh office. The application is thoroughly reviewed and the licensing details verified. The application is then passed on to the membership committee, which determines a variety of eligibility factors. The standards for our organization are set very high, so the process takes much time and is not easy. Once found eligible, the application is recommended to the co-
78 / THE MONSEY VIEW
ordinators who arrange for appropriate training and onboarding.
What training are we talking about? So it obviously varies by rank, but I’ll walk you through what it takes to become a paramedic for Hatzoloh. Once a Hatzoloh EMT has shown that he can handle the call volume and responsibility that come along with being an outstanding EMT, he can request to enroll in paramedic school. If it is determined that he can commit to the training schedule and workload, he gets referred to a paramedic program. The program can last between eight and ten months and consists of hundreds of hours of training in school and in ambulances. He gets tested vigorously along the way and then needs to pass the State and regional certification. He is then briefed regarding protocol unique to Hatzoloh of Rockland. Once his education is complete, he will take on the role of Paramedic Observer to an estab-
lished paramedic and shadow every call, acquiring invaluable training under an experienced professional. Eventually, when Hatzoloh ascertains that the time is ripe, he will be upgraded to full-level paramedic and join the official ranks. Undergoing this program shows true commitment to the community.
Is there any ongoing training? Of course! Every single member of Hatzoloh is constantly training. There are monthly medical lectures and biweekly halacha lectures to make sure that every member is fully up-to-date regarding medical advancements and has full clarity regarding difficult halachic situations that come up on Shabbos, yom tov and in general.
What was the average call volume for Hatzoloh in the pre-crisis days? On an average day, we answered an average of 32 calls, with 95% of them being emergencies and 5% being calls related to hospital transfers. This translated into 15 to 20 calls for every active member over the span of a month.
Let’s dive right into the crisis. What was the uptick in call volume during COVID-19? Some days the increase was at 500%! On the peak days, Hatzoloh dispatched members to a total of 180 calls. It obviously waxed and waned throughout the crisis. It is also important to note that each call took a lot longer than usual. People were in panic mode and needed to be calmed down and spoken to, sometimes at length. Many patients were scared of being transported to the hospital due to the reports that were being spread regarding negligent care. We did what we could to safely treat members of the community at home, and that, too, took a lot of time.
How did you meet that increased need? Our members rose to the occasion. Many members were out on calls around the clock — literally, they were out morning, noon and night without any
breaks. Members needed to be reminded that Shabbos was coming or that Pesach was drawing near. Days and nights blurred into endless blocks of time spent saving lives. Let’s not forget that every Hatzoloh member had his own family quarantined at home and trying to make Pesach, many for the first time. It is only through the unconditional support of their wives that they were able to come through with the flying colors that they did.
What did you do to protect your members in the direct line of exposure? We are happy to report that, b’siyata d’Shmaya, not a single member of Hatzoloh of Rockland got sick through exposure; we took a very proactive approach. One of our paramedics is a local PA and tested one of the first cases here in Rockland. Once he updated Hatzoloh on what was happening and what could be expected, we sprang into action. We ordered the necessary protective gear like masks, gowns and full protective suits. At one point, we ran into a little challenge. The N95 masks are only effective with a strong seal around the face. Since many of our members have beards, the seal didn’t work. But the safety of our members is priority, and we scoured the market for an alternate solution. We found a special PAPR (powered air-purifying respirator) mask from Eretz Yisroel that was selling for several hundred dollars apiece. Without batting an eyelash, we ordered over 100 pieces for all of our paramedics and a majority of our active EMTs. We held constant meetings via Zoom with our medical director and our members to keep everyone updated and informed throughout the crisis. Our service units did a tremendous job mak-
THE MONSEY VIEW / 79
ing sure that ambulances got extra cleaning in between calls. They worked tirelessly to keep our ambulances, garages and members fully stocked with crucial items and supplies. Our members felt protected and cared for, and that gave them the peace of mind to continue servicing the community.
You mentioned setting up patients at home versus transporting them to hospitals. How did you go about it? Under normal circumstances, a Hatzoloh member arrives at a scene, treats the emergency and takes the patient to the hospital. During COVID-19, the protocol was completely changed. There was a lot of fear regarding hospitalizations, especially since no family member could accompany the patient. Every time a Hatzoloh member arrived at a call, he needed to do an assessment based on our doctors’ guidelines to determine whether the patient could safely remain at home. If it was established that the patient met the criteria, Hatzoloh provided the patient with an oxygen concentrator and pulse oximeter, and family members were trained on their usage. Many, many people were safely set up this way and managed to avoid a hospital stay. Even those who eventually needed to be transported enjoyed additional days with their family, which included Pesach in many cases.
How did you determine which hospital to transport a patient to? Many factors were taken into account before transporting a patient. We were in touch with all the hospitals and were aware of the treatment opportunities each one was offering and the level of availability each hospital was facing at any given time. Based on those factors and the specific needs of each patient, the transport location was determined.
Can you share an inspiring moment that you drew chizuk from? One of our own members called on Hatzoloh for help. He was transported to the hospital and spent three and a half weeks fighting for his life. When Hatzoloh went to pick him up and bring him back home, the entire Hatzoloh celebrated his recovery, and it really boosted the overall morale.
How has Hatzoloh’s budget been affected by the crisis? Purchasing supplies and equipment to meet the safety needs of our members and our patients has taken a huge toll on Hatzoloh’s budget. In addition, much of our existing equipment will need to be replaced due to the extensive wear and tear of the past few months. Also, we are sourcing extra supplies to stockpile in the event that we face another crisis. At the same time, Hatzoloh is constantly updating its equipment to continue keeping the community safe and to remain prepared for any eventuality. Ambulances, for instance, need to be purchased for the growing areas of the Rockland community, such as New City and Airmont, in order to better respond to emergencies in these locations.
What’s your parting message to the community? As a community, we have a responsibility to remain vigilant and follow the appropriate guidelines. We acknowledge that times are difficult; we are all going through challenges on many levels. Hatzoloh will continue being there for the community and will continue taking a proactive approach no matter what the future will bring.

Avi Kehat saw millions of tzedakah dollars go to waste. With skill and determination, he revolutionized the world of online fundraising through the launch of The Chesed Fund. Chesed had finally found its home.
88 / THE MONSEY VIEW / May 20, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
A number of years ago, an overly cynical taxi driver shared with me a piece of sage advice that I’ve kept in back of my mind since. In a heavy Israeli accent, he told me, “Listen brother, everything is business.” In some ways, the world of online tzedakah fundraising has been no exception. This growing industry now boasts expert marketers, pricey web platforms, credit card processors, email list rentals, tech mavens, writers, graphic designers and more. But one Israeli man has apparently not met our

wise taxi driver. For this Beit Shemesh resident, not everything is about business. In 2015, software developer Avi Kehat started working on a side project that would provide individuals and organizations with a free platform for fundraising. He gave it an appropriate name: The Chesed Fund.
90 / THE MONSEY VIEW / May 20, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
Five years and nearly $80 million later, this platform has clearly meant business for thousands of mosdos, organizations, families struck by tragedy, and Yidden in need. Just last month alone, a total of $8 million was fundraised on TheChesedFund.com, with most of the donations going toward helping families devastated by the coronavirus pandemic. The Chesed Fund does not take any commission or charge any fees. Mr. Kehat says that he built the website after seeing how much organizations were losing in fees with competing services. â€œThere is so much pain and suffering in the world; I wanted to create something that would help individuals and organizations keep as much as possible of the funds they raised.â€? To that end, he began dedicating his evenings to building the infrastructure of a free online crowdfunding platform. Mr. Kehat, a computer software engineer by day, would work deep into the night to get this venture off the ground. With a goal of eliminating costs, the software had to be simple, efficient and intui-
tive so that individuals could run campaigns entirely on their own. Assistance is readily available to those who request it, but it isn’t required, and a campaign can be set up in a matter of minutes. Each campaign can also opt to fill out a verification form, and a designated employee is tasked with contacting references and establishing the campaign’s legitimacy. Donors will then see a verified campaign stamp of approval on the campaign page. The Chesed Fund covers its overhead costs through the generosity of donors. After each donation, tzedakah givers are asked if they want to tip a few dollars toward the website’s operational expenses. The site does offer some premium features for a small fee, but those fees merely cover the additional expenses and do not provide much of a profit. Surprisingly — or unsurprisingly, after speaking with members of the team — free doesn’t mean the experience is inferior. Grueling hours have been put in over the years to build a system that rivals and exceeds anything that’s out there on the market. Being free also doesn’t mean being basic. There are many options available to suit the needs of each individual campaign. Campaigns can be run online or over the phone, with options for outsourcing the work to a call center, hiring a team to answer phones, or doing it in-house. Never tiring from enhancing the platform, Avi and his team are in the process of developing an automated phone system to process payments. What makes their leadership proud is how simple and easy it is to use their proprietary software. To illustrate The Chesed Fund at its finest, Avi shares the story of a frantic call they recently received. A yungerman called in to share that he was sitting at shalosh seudos with a couple of friends, and after hearing about an acquaintance who was struggling financially, they decided to create a small fundraising page so that they could all network for donations. The campaign was set up on Motzei Shabbos, but it went unexpectedly viral, and after a few hours they’d already reached $50,000. Having counted on raising $2,000 to $3,000, the caller was in no way prepared to receive such a large sum into his bank account and deal with the legal logistics of such a transaction. Of course, The Chesed Fund was able to arrange for a non-profit organization to receive the funding and process it correctly. Most campaigns on the website are of a serious nature — like helping orphaned families, providing financial aid to tzedakah organizations, funding burials costs, and so on — but Avi and his team are more than okay with
When Avi hears of these campaigns, he smiles. “Chesed is chesed, and spreading smiles certainly qualifies!”
users putting the fun into The Chesed Fund. One group of friends created a page to raise money for a chasan and kallah to enjoy a limousine and bottle of Glenfiddich on the way home from their wedding, and there was a young girl who launched a campaign to send her special-needs brother to camp so that she could have some quality time with her parents at home. When Avi hears of these campaigns, he smiles. “Chesed is chesed, and spreading smiles certainly qualifies!” Over the years, the website has hosted major campaigns launched by prominent organizations including Hatzoloh, Aish, Kupat Ha’ir and Va’ad Harabbanim. One of the Aish campaigns was especially notable, as it had actually begun on a different platform, but when those servers crashed, it was moved to The Chesed Fund and raised nearly $1,000,000 in a matter of hours. The fact that organizations with their own in-house fundraising software rely on an outsider to handle the heavy volume during their most crucial hours is a testament to the supremacy of this platform. Mr. Kehat and a group of partners operate and manage the website as volunteers who don’t collect any compensation, though The Chesed Fund does boast a paid support staff to handle site users’ needs and provide necessary support. The staff works remotely in Baltimore and Ramat Beit Shemesh, Eretz

Yisroel, and the entire operation maintains a non-corporate feel, with each member playing a role in making this massive chesed operation possible. The current pandemic has cemented The Chesed Fund’s reputation as a leader in this field. With so many tragedies occurring in a short time, r”l, campaigns were being set up in haste before the next victim overtook the headlines. A quick visit to the website while this article is being written shows over 30 corona-related campaigns being run simultaneously. A banner on the website announces that over $8,000,000 has already been raised through the generosity of nearly 100,000 donors for this particular plight alone. Not surprisingly, this has been the biggest fundraising month since its inception. Mr. Kehat makes sure to note that The Chesed Fund’s success is truly a testament to Klal Yisroel’s generosity. The best designed systems are useless without a nation of ba’alei chesed who are always there for one another in a time of need. Mi k’amcha Yisroel.

Recovering from Covid-19?
Coronavirus Patient Zero Shares His Story in First Media Interview Six weeks after being released from the hospital, Riverdale attorney Lawrence Garbuz, New York’s first coronavirus patient, and his wife Adina spoke of their harrowing experience with NBC Today. Garbuz shared that he had been feeling slightly under the weather in February, but that as a lawyer who spent his days sitting at a desk and who had never traveled to China, the idea that he might have contracted COVID-19 never once crossed his mind. After waking up one night with a slight fever, the father of four decided to stay home from work the next morning, making an appointment to see his doctor that day. Instead of being handed a prescription, Garbuz was sent straight to a local hospital. While he had always been healthy and vibrant, the 50-year-old’s condition deteriorated quickly, and the decision was made to transfer him to a Manhattan hospital that could provide better care. Seeing her husband struggling to breathe on the ambulance ride to the city, Adina Garbuz insisted that he be intubated during transit instead of waiting until they got to the hospital. “He was suffering, and I couldn’t watch it,” said Adina Garbuz. “I am looking at him, and I didn’t think he was going to make an ambulance ride in that state.” Adina Garbuz recalled the night her husband’s diagnosis was confirmed. It was 9 p.m. when she got the official notification, and she spent a full night on the phone with various departments of health, discussing how to proceed and sharing the places her husband had been, which included shul, a bas mitzvah, his Manhattan law office and Grand Central Station. “That was the most important,” said Adina Garbuz. “I didn’t want anybody else to get sick. I mean, I knew what we were going through, and I didn’t want anybody else to do that.” Garbuz, who had no pre-existing conditions before contracting the coronavirus, said he believes his wife’s decision to have him intubated in the ambulance saved his life. He remembers nothing at all from the time he entered the emergency room in Westchester until he woke up from a coma in a New York City hospital, a full three weeks later. Finally back at home after his extended hospitalization, Garbuz said that he hasn’t dwelled on the fact that his was the first confirmed coronavirus diagnosis in New York, which has since become the pandemic’s epicenter in the United States. Instead, he is focusing on recuperating and on his family, recalling seeing a picture of his

children that someone had placed near his hospital bed. “I was able to look at them every single day, and my goal was to go home, and that was my only goal,” said Garbuz.
Summer Camps Still Being Discussed in Albany With schools closed indefinitely, weary parents hoping for even a small amount of respite are pinning their hopes on being able to send their children to camp this summer, but Albany officials have yet to come to any official decisions as of Sunday. Hamodia reported that emerging cases of a Kawasakilike disease that has already affected 120 New York children, claiming three young lives so far, are further complicating an already difficult matter. Asked about camps at his daily press conference, Governor Andrew Cuomo said that initial decisions were being made on the assumption that children were not being largely affected by the coronavirus, a fact that has changed in recent weeks. “If you now change your facts again and say children may be affected, not with the traditional COVID respiratory illness, but they may have a more serious inflammatory illness, which can be a heart disease issue, that’s a different set of facts,” said Cuomo. “We have to respond to the facts, and it’s especially tricky if the facts change.” Over 200 similar cases have been reported nationwide, and according to the governor, five other countries are also reporting similar illnesses in children. Representatives of over 65 camps sent a joint letter to Sullivan County governmental officials, offering a lockdown plan for the summer that would eliminate trips, visiting days and out-of-camp off-days for staff to ensure that campers would remain far apart from local residents. The May 7th letter also said that overnight camps would likely cancel their day camp programs, and that in the event of a Catskills coronavirus outbreak, Hatzoloh would transport patients to city hospitals to avoid overwhelming local medical centers. Ending with a final reminder that summer camps generate millions of dollars for the local economy, the letter concluded with a plea for a positive recommendation to Albany. “We love Sullivan County and see ourselves as partners in an economically viable and safe environment. We implore you to write a letter to the governor telling him that you welcome overnight camps with open arms!” The summer camp discussion came at the end of a

It was a mazel tov of epic proportions as the Ben Simon family of France welcomed five girls and one boy at the Hautepierre Hospital in Strasbourg, France, on May 15. The premature babies weighed between 1 pound 6 ounces and 1 pound 9 ounces each. All are in good condition and are expected to remain hospitalized for months. The babies’ father, Rabbi Ovadia Ben Simon, is an avreich who is well known in the Paris suburb of Epinay-sur-Seine. The Ben Simons, who have two older children, moved from Paris to Strasbourg approximately two years ago.

press conference where Cuomo announced that the state was doubling its testing capacity to 40,000 tests per day, available at 700 sites throughout the state. The governor urged anyone with any coronavirus symptoms, including coughing, chest pain or loss of smell or taste, as well as anyone who came in contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19, to get tested in order to further limit the spread of the deadly virus. Hoping to counter the notion that testing is time-consuming, difficult or painful, Cuomo had a doctor ready to join the press conference and test him for the virus on the spot. Standing up from his chair, without flinching, Cuomo underwent the six-second nasal swab, asking Doctor Elizabeth Dufort who performed the test, “That’s it? That’s it? Nothing else?” before turning again to reporters and saying, “There is no reason why you should not get the test, and you don’t even have to be New York tough to take that test.”

Ramapo’s Budget Deficit a Thing of the Past?

The $5 million sale of the Suffern Quarry may very well be the shot in the arm that the Town of Ramapo needed, potentially wiping out a $3.7 million deficit and leaving the town with a potential $1.3 million surplus. Ramapo bought the 60-acre property formerly owned by Tilcon for $1 in December 2006, reported The Journal News. Efforts to sell the property — which overlooks downtown Suffern and extends to out-of-use Tilcon Quarry — to a developer were underway as the site has become both a problem and a danger, drawing swimmers and resulting in multiple trespassing arrests. The quarry site is being sold to DelCalzo Realty of Paramus, which plans to build 500,000 square feet of industrial space on the land. Suffern Mayor Edward Markunas made it clear that no zoning changes would be made to allow residential housing on the site. Ramapo Supervisor Michael Specht said that the impending sale was good news for the town, which has been using strict financial management to eliminate a deficit that had stood at $13.7 million in 2017. “We feel confident that we will achieve our goal of a positive general fund balance by the end of 2020,” said Specht.

Monsey Community Embraces Campaign to Support Local Retailers Impacted by COVID-19 MONSEY, NY — In news that was greeted with great anticipation by local store owners, an awareness campaign was recently launched to help breathe life into our community’s retail sector. The initiative, aptly named Life Support Awareness Campaign, encourages families to continue shopping local during the current crisis and support the stores we have come to rely upon throughout the years. The coronavirus pandemic has hit all businesses hard, but in our community the effects have been felt even more strongly. What is generally the busiest season right before Pesach saw storefronts shuttered and customers buying online or clutching their wallets tight. The lost revenue isn’t all, though; storeowners who borrowed or invested inordinate amounts of capital months in advance to prepare for this season were left with inventory and debt that threaten to sink their life’s work. Many retailers operate on small profit margins, and seeing their business completely closed for a number of weeks or months could mean inevitable bankruptcy. The campaign asks the community to remember that these owners are hardworking individuals who have spent years or decades to build their businesses, and our support during this time is critical to keeping their stores afloat until things return to normal, b’ezras Hashem. In recent days, posters and digital media campaign ads have begun making waves in the community. Individuals and families are being encouraged to patronize local shops even when it might be more convenient or cheaper to purchase online or elsewhere. The eagerness to cooperate has been universal, and business owners have expressed gratitude for the incredible grassroots support. One Monsey resident commented that he doesn’t view it as if he’s only helping a fellow Yid in need, because he remembers the not-too-distant past when Monsey wasn’t blessed with the stores and purchasing options we have today. “It is in our personal interests to see our retailers thrive,” he wrote. The campaign was launched by The Monsey View in conjunction with the talented Menachem Kohn owner of Admark, a popular local marketing agency. The magazine has long had a front-row seat to the Monsey retail scene, and its leadership felt that they couldn’t stand by and watch so many hardworking community members lose everything they’ve worked on for so long. Some retailers are still forced to exclusively offer curbside pickup, among other restrictions, but owners are working together and pressuring political leaders to allow them the same freedom offered to stores like Walmart and Home Depot, which are able to sell nonessentials with reasonable social distancing measures in place. Despite the minor inconveniences, it is expected that the community will warmly rise to the challenge and support local shop owners during this road to recovery. Lechu v’hisparnesu zeh m’zeh.

Recap: Binyamin comes home for Shabbos, and his mother finally accosts him about the questionable way he went about earning money. Elisheva tells him all about Mrs. Hartstein and the silver yad that had been in the envelope — and that has thankfully been found. Ulush is feeling lonely in New York. She and Janek receive letters from both Gustav and Edo in Eretz Yisroel. The boys are each in a separate orphanage, and both of them are feeling lonely too. “Elisheva?” “Yes?” “Hi, it’s Blumi Hartstein.” “Oh, hi, Blumi. How are you?” “Great, baruch Hashem. Listen, how many children do you think will be attending the hachnasas sefer Torah?” “We don’t really know.” Elisheva set down the basket of wet laundry and adjusted the phone wedged between her ear and shoulder. “We have to ask the gabbaim in the shul, and then add our own children to the count.” “Oh, won’t the procession begin in Bnei Brak? Won’t it be leaving from your house?” “We would want it to, but it’s a bit too much of a mess to divide a hachnasas sefer Torah between two cities, you know?” Elisheva chuckled. “It will leave from Rav Tawil’s home; he’s the rav of the shul. They’ll finish writing the letters there.” “I’m asking because we want to donate pekelach. I hope you don’t mind that I feel like I have a part in this hachnasas sefer Torah.” “You really do have a big part,” Elisheva said warmly. “You are sponsoring the seudah. Tell me, do you have any idea, once we’re talking, if there is room to inscribe a l’ilui nishmas on the outside of the sefer Torah?”
“It’s not a velvet mantle, you know,” Blumi said. “It’s made of wood. Unless you ordered one with silver as well?” “No,” Elisheva said, “but my husband got the phone number of an expert wood craftsman, and he’ll speak to him. I want to write that it should be l’ilui nishmas my father’s family, but I’m not sure if it’s funny to ask for such a thing, if there’s no room.” “Honestly, I don’t know,” Blumi said. “But I’ll ask my husband, or my mother-in-law, if I don’t catch him. Both of them should know the answer to that. Do you need a lot of space? Was it a big family?” “It’s sad.” Elisheva’s laugh was hollow and lacked any mirth. “There’s nothing to write. My father knows nothing about his family.” “He knows nothing? What does that mean?” “He was a little boy during the war, and he was in a Christian orphanage in Bratislava, in Slovakia. When the war ended, he was handed over to Jewish people, but no one had any information about his background. And then he came to Eretz Yisroel, grew up here, and that’s it…” “Oy, it’s scary to think about it.” Blumi rocked slowly back and forth in her rocking

chair. “And that’s how you grew up? Without any family on your father’s side?” “Without family would have been normal. There were lots of lone survivors like him; he wasn’t the only one. The thing is —” she groped for the right words “— he didn’t even have memories; he had no past. When there’s no past, you have to work very hard to create a good future. As a child, he wandered from place to place, until eventually he found himself, baruch Hashem.” “Oy, it sounds horrible…” “Were your parents Holocaust survivors?” Elisheva put the empty basket down on the floor. “You seem to be about my age.” “We might be around the same age, but if you’re telling me that your father was a little boy during the war,” Blumi said, “that means that my parents were much older. My older brothers are already marrying off their grandchildren; I’m the youngest.” She paused. “My mother and father married in Eretz Yisroel before the war. My mother was from Yerushalayim, and her family was originally from Hungary; my father was born in Hungary, but came to Eretz Yisroel with his family at age twelve. So I grew up with lots of relatives on both sides.” “The type of family I always, as a girl, dreamed of having,” Elisheva concluded. “Where do your brothers and sisters live? Do your children at least have lots of cousins?” “They do, but from my husband’s side. I’m an only child.” “Really! So you really grew up like that, in absolute silence.” “Not absolute silence…” Elisheva chuckled as she pulled the shutters closed. “I was a very active girl, baruch Hashem, and my mother wasn’t too quiet either… But my father is,” she added thoughtfully. “Is what, the quiet type?” “Yes, the very quiet type. I
have no idea if it’s an inborn trait, or if life did it to him.” Blumi shifted in her chair, the one her daughters had bought for her twentieth wedding anniversary. “It sounds so sad… Wasn’t it possible for him to try to figure out who he was, maybe based on his first name?” “He got his secular first name in the orphanage. He got his Jewish name after the war. So no one knows what his real name is.”
“I don’t think so. At least, I don’t remember any traveling or searching during my childhood. But on the other hand, it’s possible that there were things I didn’t notice.” She paused. “He never told me anything. Although just a few years ago, he told me about one effort that he did make, when he was a bachur.” *****
Haifa, 5723/1963* The street was sleepy, baking in the burning sun. Yisroel Bentzion walked down the narrow sidewalk, which was covered with wild berries that had fallen from the tightly crowded trees, and studied the house numbers. Twentyfour. Twenty-six. Twentyeight. A small flight of stairs brought him to the door on the first floor. The Weiss family. He knocked. “Is Reb Akiva here?” he asked the woman who answered the door. “No, he’s not home now,” Rabbi Weiss’ wife said. “Do you know where I can find him?” “He should be coming home at lunchtime. Do you want a drink?” “No, thanks. Is… is it alright if I come back at lunchtime?” He was ready to go back down the stairs. “Sure.” The little shul that he found on the street hosted him until after Mincha. Perhaps one of the mispallelim here was Rabbi Akiva Weiss? He had been too young and confused to remember the people who had surrounded them all those years ago… It took several moments after the end of davening until he was able to pick himself up and try again. Aside from the fact that he was a Yid, he had not a single detail to offer about himself. That was not a good place to start with any shadchan. If he hadn’t done it
“He got his secular first name in the orphanage. He got his Jewish name after the war. So no one knows what his real name is.”
106 / THE MONSEY VIEW / May 20, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
“What’s his name today?” “Yisroel Bentzion. I guess one of his Jewish counselors chose the name.” “And there was no family who adopted you, or something like that, in the picture?” “No.” Elisheva paused and then added, “On second thought, there was a couple that was involved in smuggling my father out of the Christian orphanage, and he did keep up with them to some extent. I remember there being some letters and shanah tovah cards from them. And then, when I was ten years old, they came to Eretz Yisroel for a visit, and we traveled to mekomos hakdoshim with them. That was the only time in my life that I got a little taste of what it’s like to have a grandmother, because Ulush, aleha hashalom — that was the name of the woman — was a very warm person.” “They both passed away already?” “Yes. And we don’t have any connection to their children.” “And your father didn’t try, over the years, to search for his real family?”
for help. “Regretfully, anything was possible after the Holocaust. You are not the only one, my dear Yisroel, who began life again from zero.” He smiled at the young man. “And as far as I can see, you grew up nicely.” “Yes. Baruch Hashem.” Yisroel smiled. A small smile — and a miserable one — but a smile nonetheless. “I remember a few such children whose parents did not leave any details, or whose information got lost. Most of them were from Poland, but there were also some from other areas…” Rabbi Weiss sighed. “Eliyahu Hanavi will answer all of these questions and mysteries, when he arrives.” “Amen…” Yisroel whispered, his mouth dry. Even the water he tried to sip could not alleviate the parched sensation in his throat. “Where are you these days?” “In Yerushalayim.” “And what about Janek and Ulush Cohen? Have you kept in touch with them? Where are they?” “In America. And yes, we are in touch, to some degree.” He stood up and turned toward the door. “Very nice. Don’t forget to invite them to your wedding!” “B’ezras Hashem.” He smiled again. “In the right time.” “And me as well, okay? I’ll try to check, Yisroel, if perhaps there was some information about you that I don’t recall right now. Don’t give up.” Rabbi Weiss escorted his young guest to the door. It was clear to them both that the last sentence had been uttered only to keep that tiny ray of hope still alive. *****

“And no one ever found a single relative who could reveal to my father who he is,” Elisheva concluded, after sharing the story with Blumi. To be continued... *This segment is based on a true, sad incident that occurred in the home of my grandfather, zt”l, in Haifa in those years. Just like in the story, in the real case as well, my grandfather was unable to help the bachur who was begging for some information about his own identity.
until now, then it was no doubt time. He had to at least try. The street welcomed him again, much busier than it had been earlier. Again he arrived at the small structure, and this time, he was ushered into a large room. He gratefully accepted the cup of cold water, and then Reb Akiva walked into the room, tall and smiling, and shook his hand. “I’m not sure if you remember me,” Yisroel said shyly. “But I was referred to you by Agudas Yisroel. You were an activist with them after the war, right?” The man nodded. “Do you remember, perhaps, that you helped smuggle two children out of the Catholic orphanage in Bratislava, three years after the war?” Less than twenty seconds elapsed. “Wait, Janek Cohen and his wife were involved in that story, right?” “Yes.” “What’s your name today?” “Today? Yisroel Bentzion. That’s what I wanted to ask you; perhaps you know my real name.” “Your real name…” “Yes. If you have any information about me, or about my family in Bratislava…” Rabbi Weiss gazed at him for a long time. “I’m afraid not,” he said after a moment, in a gentle tone. “I didn’t keep any information about any of the children from them. We shared everything that we knew. I remember you. Both of you, actually.” “And you really knew nothing about our origins?” “Nothing. The activist who took the risk to get you out of there also sneaked into the offices, but there were no details there. I remember your story to this day, because it was a bit unusual to discover Jewish children literally under our noses, three years after the war.” “But how can it be that no one knows anything?” Yisroel’s gaze looked like that of a little chick whose legs had gotten tangled in the mesh of its cage. “Nothing?” Reb Akiva’s eyes tried to emit softness, as if to stroke the feathers, the trapped legs, the eyes crying out

The Michael Flynn Case Explained THE PULSE: The Michael Flynn saga has dominated the political news cycle for the past week. Many are rightly disturbed by the events for various reasons. However much of what has transpired is being framed by political operatives to further their agendas and to stoke heated passions for political gain. Below is an attempt to portray the players and facts in a dispassionate and reasoned way. BACKGROUND: Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn served as a senior adviser to the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential campaign and briefly served as national security adviser in the early days of the Trump Administration. Flynn courted controversy when he failed to report that
110 / THE MONSEY VIEW / May 20, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
he had been on the payroll of the Turkish government and pled guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russian foreign minister Sergey Kislyak. Vice President Mike Pence publicly stated that Flynn misled him regarding the nature of the Kislyak meeting, and that was the basis for Flynnâ€™s firing as national security adviser. Recently revealed documents show that FBI agents considered getting Flynn to lie. Flynn has attempted to withdraw his guilty plea on the basis that he was deliberately set up by the FBI. In a controversial decision, the Justice Department decided to drop all charges against Flynn. However, the final decision regarding Flynnâ€™s fate will rest with Judge Emmet Sullivan. He will decide to either accept the Justice Departmentâ€™s recommendations or to proceed with sentencing. The case has inflamed political passions and will almost certainly be a point of contention in the upcoming presi-
dential race. Below is a summary of the key players and events.
agreed to cooperate with the Mueller investigation, though he has recently attempted to change his plea.
LT. GEN. MICHAEL FLYNN: He is a former Trump
THE LOGAN ACT: This is a federal law that criminalizes negotiation by unauthorized American citizens with foreign governments having a dispute with the United States. It is questionable if the Logan Act applies to members of an incoming administration. However, the accepted norm is that only one administration negotiates at a time. It is likely for this reason that Flynn was less than candid about his contacts with Kislyak.
campaign adviser and national security adviser. He served in the military for 33 years. He co-authored a book on how to fight radical Islam. He led crowds in feverish chants of “lock her up” at the 2016 Republican National Convention. He founded the Flynn Intel Group, which lobbied on behalf of foreign governments. SERGEY KISLYAK: He is a Russian diplomat who served as Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Kislyak developed contacts with various members of the Trump campaign. On December 29, 2016, the outgoing Obama administration placed sanctions on high-level Russian officials. On that same day, Kysliak held multiple phone conversations with Lt. Gen. Flynn to discuss these sanctions and Russia’s response. Flynn recommended that the Russians not escalate the situation. VP MIKE PENCE: Flynn misled
Mike Pence regarding the nature of his discussions with Kislyak. Although he discussed sanctions with Kislyak, he led Pence to believe that he did not. Then press secretary Sean Spicer stated that the decision to fire Flynn was “not based on a legal issue, but based on a trust issue.” President Trump said, “I fired him because of what he said to Mike Pence” and that “He didn’t tell the vice president of the United States the facts, and then he didn’t remember, and that’s just not acceptable.” THE FBI: The FBI was in the midst
of an investigation named “Crossfire Hurricane” that was looking into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. FBI agents interviewed Flynn, and he misled them on multiple accounts. Flynn denied discussing sanctions with Kislyak and denied that he had lobbied the Russians to oppose a security council resolution critical of Israel. Flynn pled guilty to lying to the FBI and
GOVERNMENT OF TURKEY: Michael Flynn failed to disclose that he was doing lobbying work as a paid agent of the Turkish government. Failure to register as a foreign agent is a federal crime. This charge was dropped, most likely in light of Flynn’s guilty plea and the assistance that he provided to the Mueller investigation. NEWLY
Recently, information has come to light that the FBI considered closing Flynn’s investigation before they interviewed him. However, Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok advised that the file remain open, which enabled the FBI to talk to him when knowledge of the Kislyak phone calls came to light. There was an internal FBI debate regarding the nature of the Flynn interview, with one agent writing, “What’s our goal? Truth/ Admission, or to get him to lie so we can prosecute him or get him fired?” Flynn voluntarily submitted to the interview. PETER STZROK: Worked as a deputy assistant general in the FBI. He also worked as part of the Mueller team. Robert Mueller dismissed him due to the controversy surrounding many anti-Trump messages found on his phone. Some have used these messages to allege that the FBI was biased against Trump. However, it must be noted that the FBI and its director, James Comey, decided to go public with their decision to reopen the Clinton email investigation
days before the election. The public announcement cost Clinton much momentum, and likely, the votes of many would-be supporters. THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT: In
light of the newly released memos, the Justice Department decided to accept Flynn’s lawyers’ argument that the charges against him should be dropped. They argue that Flynn’s lies were not “material” to a crime, as there was no real reason to interview him in the first place. However, the Mueller report states that Flynn’s lies “materially impaired the investigation of Russian election interference.” JUDGE EMMET SULLIVAN: He is the presiding judge and is tasked with sentencing Flynn. He will decide if the charges should be dropped or not. He has asked U.S. District Judge John Gleeson to present a counter-argument to that of the Justice Department. He has also stated that he will accept amicus briefs allowing third parties to weigh in on the merits of the case. Over 200 former Justice Department officials signed a public letter critical of the Justice Department’s decision to drop the charges against Flynn and calling on AG William Barr to resign. JOE BIDEN AND UNMASKING:
The FBI was aware of Flynn’s discussions with Kislyak, because the FBI routinely eavesdrops on phone calls of foreign agents located in the United States. When such spying takes place, the identities of any U.S. citizens involved must remain masked. The identities of U.S. citizens cannot be disclosed without sufficient reason and cause. According to documents released by the acting Director of National Intelligence, members of the Obama administration sought to unmask Flynn’s identity. Republicans tend to see this as a sinister attempt to use the information to damage the incoming Trump administration. Democrats tend to see it as a legitimate request to know who was discussing the Obama administration sanctions with Russia. WASHINGTON POST LEAK: In

the final days of the Obama administration, somebody leaked to the Washington Post that Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn was under investigation by the FBI for his ties to Russia. Leaking classified information is a crime. CONSERVATIVE MEDIA: Much of the Conservative media has pounced on the Flynn saga and has attempted to portray Flynn as the unfortunate target of a bureaucracy intent on undermining the Trump administration. They have used the events to level frenzied accusations of criminality against former President Obama and presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden. COUNTERVIEW: Many in the mainstream and liberal media are concerned about the actions of the Justice Department. They perceive a troubling trend of allowing political bias to dictate the terms of justice. They are disturbed by the recent decisions of the Justice Department to interfere in the sentencing of Trump confidant Roger Stone and see the decision to drop charges against Flynn as a continuation of this trend.

case does not appear to bear out all the hysterics. Michael Flynn is guilty of lying on multiple counts, as well as not disclosing his work for Turkey. Lying put Flynn at risk of blackmail from foreign actors who were likely aware that he lied to Pence and the FBI. As such, Trump’s decision to fire Flynn was fully warranted. The recently released FBI memos are problematic, but many legal observers point out that these tactics are commonly used during FBI interrogations. It is not an indication of a sinister plot against Flynn but instead of an overall problem with FBI questioning tactics. The unmasking requests require context and may or may not be excusable. The leak to The Washington Post was illegal, and the leaker should be held accountable.
In Other News: Justin Amash announced that he would not be seeking the Libertarian party’s nomination and that he would not be running for president in 2020. President Trump announced the rollout of “Operation Warp Speed” to fast-track the development of a COVID-19 vaccine. President Trump lent his support to anti-lockdown protestors, who harassed a news reporter covering their event. The pro-Trump event organizers apologized for the incident, but the president did not retract his comments of support.

Simplicity is the key to true elegance. When it comes to setting the table for Shavuos, starched white tablecloths, an abundance of elegant dishes, and pinks, pastels, florals and flowers come to mind. For this year’s Shavuos tablescape, we wanted to bring elegance and class back home, because traditional elegance never goes out of style. I teamed up with Miriam from the Naperie, who not only made my vision and sketches come to fruition, but she went above and beyond that. The result? A traditional yet elegant, affordable yet attractive, soft yet show-stopping tablescape. Foodwise, Shavuos is the highlight of the year for me, because I’m a huge fan of anything dairy; I’m a cheese-over-juicy-steak-anytime kind of fan. When Shavuos prep begins, I’m in dairy utopia. And now, I’m so thrilled to share with all of you the Shavuos recipes I grew up on and love to indulge in during yom tov, with some new tips and tricks that’ll surely be helpful in saving you time and making the preparations so much easier. Gut yom tov! Rivky

When it comes to setting a table, remember: Layer, layer, layer. Placing dinner plates on chargers, or salad plates on dinner plates, adds dimension and interest to the table. Top with beautifully bound napkins or flowers, and youâ€™ll instantly have an elegant tablescape.

Yom tov is all about tradition, and Shavuos is no different. The kreplach, the blintzes, the cheesecakes — tradition, tradition, tradition. Shavuos is a special time of the year for my entire family, because we get to indulge in all my Babby’s decadently delicious dairy Shavuos treats. Her melt in-the-mouth cheesecake and her fresh, heavenly kreplach make even the strongest of dieters see their resolve go. So obviously, two of the dairy recipes featured are my beloved grandmother’s recipes. I’d like to pause here a moment and say something to all of you who are shaking your heads and thinking, I’m never doing this — I’ll leave it to my Babby. So to you I’d like to say, I hear you. I feel for you. But don’t turn the page just yet; continue reading first! Deep breath in, deep breath out. You can do it! Before I called my Babby to ask her for the recipes, I was kind of nervous that I was even thinking of trying her recipes! Kreplach? Me? But Babby calmed me down, and with endless patience (in the face of my endless string of questions), she gave me a step-by-step, kreplach-forthe-dummy tutorial and shared some of her most treasured kitchen secrets. Thank you, Babby! Is there a better time for blintzes than Shavuos? Nope! Which means we have to make ‘em! The blintzes recipe below is from my mother, who got it from a friend, who got it from a friend, who got it from a friend (thank you, whoever you are!), and it is, by far, a winner of a recipe. The credit for the dairy cookie recipe goes to my younger brother. He’s the most talented gourmet home-chef. The food he cooks and goodies he bakes are restaurant-worthy — including these mouthwatering cookies we were once lucky enough to taste. I tweaked the recipe to make it easier for us simple chefs, but I should warn you beforehand: These cookies will be gone before you can say cheese (pun intended), so I would advise you to bake them when no one’s around. Note: All of these recipes can be prepared in advance. They freeze well and will taste perfectly fresh when defrosted.

You will need: 2 9-inch round disposable pans (or 1 12-inch springform pan, with the bottom lined with a parchment paper and the sides buttered)
2 bags Ostreicher’s lemon cookies
1. When the mixture is smooth, pour it into the springform pan, or divide between the two disposable pans. Bake at 350° for 1 hour and 10 minutes. Do not open the oven door to peek in on the cheesecake. Opening the oven causes the temperature to change, which might cause the cheesecake to crack.
2 sticks butter 1¼ cups sugar
Directions 1. In a small pot, melt the butter. While it’s melting, crush the cookies, using a rolling pin for the smoothest results: Place the bag of cookies facedown on the counter, and roll a rolling pin back and forth over the bag. Spill the crushed cookies into the springform pan, or divide between the two disposable pans. 2. When the butter is melted, add it to the crushed cookies in the pan, and add the sugar. Mix really well, and once it’s combined, press down all around the bottom of the pan to form a nice, thick, even crust. Use a spoon to smooth out any bumps.
2. When the cheesecake has finished baking, turn the oven off and leave the cheesecake inside. Set the timer for 1½ hours — and leave the oven door closed! 3. When the timer rings, you can remove the cheesecake from the oven. Place it in the refrigerator for a minimum of 4 to 6 hours to let it set before decorating.
Decorating Directions Cheese Filling 1½ lb. J&J farmer cheese 2 J&J whipped cream cheese 1 large (16 oz.) sour cream 4 T. cornstarch, diluted in 4 T. milk 2 cups milk 4 eggs 1½ cups sugar 2 T. vanilla sugar
Directions Place all ingredients into a bowl. With a fork or whisk, mix it all together. Small clumps are perfectly okay.
124 / THE MONSEY VIEW / May 20, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
1. Before decorating: If you baked the cheesecake in a springform pan, open and release slowly. If you baked it in disposable pans, make a small cut in each pan and tear off the sides, leaving the bottom under the cake. 2. The fun part is obviously the decorating. The options are endless! I used whip and cherries because my Babby has been doing this ever since I can remember, and it’s the best kind of topping out there. 3. The whip mixture requires one carton whip, whipped and then combined with one instant vanilla pudding. 4. Cover tightly when you’re done and freeze.
May 20, 2020 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 125 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
Cheese Kreplach Dough 1 large (16 oz.) sour cream
2 J&J whipped cream cheese
2 T. oil
8 cups flour
Dash of salt
Directions Mix all of the ingredients together to form a dough. You might need to add some flour. Roll out the dough into a large rectangle and cut into 3-inch squares.
Filling 1 lb. J&J farmer cheese
6 T. sugar
Pinch of salt
2 T. vanilla sugar
Directions Mix all ingredients.
Assembly Directions Place one teaspoon of filling in the center of each square. Fold one edge over to form a triangle. Close it securely by pressing with a fork all around or by pinching with your hands. Drop each triangle into boiling salt water for about 20 minutes, and then place into a pan.
Crumbs The best crumbs for the kreplach, my Babby says, are made from challah! Take a dry piece of challah (any leftover challah that remained pareve) and blend in the food processor. Saute the crumbs with some butter and oil until theyâ€™re golden. Coat the kreplach before freezing. Allow the kreplach to thaw on the counter overnight before serving. In the morning, cut some cubes of butter and place them on top of the kreplach. Warm them on a small flame or in the oven at 300Â° for about 45 minutes. Sprinkle sugar on top immediately before serving (optional).

The Blintz Passed Along Crepes
8 oz. plain cream cheese
3 cups flour
1½ lb. farmer cheese
1 cup oil
8 oz. sour cream
¾ cup sugar
½ cup sugar
3 T. vanilla sugar
1 T. vanilla sugar
A generous pinch of salt
⅓ cup milk
Directions 1. Blend all the ingredients with an immersion blender until no lumps remain. Alternatively, you can do it with a fork, too — just make sure the batter is smooth. 2. Prepare a dish lined with paper towel for the ready crepes. 3. Set a medium-size frying pan on a medium-low flame. Pour a bit of oil into the pan, and tilt the pan so the oil coats the bottom and sides of the frying pan. When the oil is hot, pour an almost-ladleful of the batter into the pan. Tilt the pan all around so you get the mixture evenly all over, and place it back onto the flame. You know the crepe is ready to be flipped when the edges start looking brown and the inner rim looks nice and firm. Flip the blintz with a spatula, count until 10, and then remove it from the pan before placing it on the prepared dish. 4. After frying two or three crepes, you will need to add some more oil. Always make sure to keep the pan oiled; otherwise you’ll be busy scraping bits and pieces off the entire time. Repeat this process until the batter is used up. 5. When the crepes are cooled, we’re ready to roll. Literally.
128 / THE MONSEY VIEW / May 20, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
½ cup confectioners’ sugar
Directions Mix with hand beaters, whisk or fork.
Assembly Directions 1. Place a heaping tablespoon of the filling onto the lower part of the crepe, about an inch from the edge. 2. Fold the lower edge of the crepe over the filling. Fold the sides of the crepe inward, as though you’re folding an envelope. Roll the blintz up and over the filling like an egg roll, tucking the edges in as you roll. 3. Line up the filled crepes in a disposable pan pan (placing parchment paper between the rows) and freeze. 4. The blintzes taste great after being thawed in the fridge overnight. But if you want to take it to the next level, you can fry them! Pour ¼ cup oil into a pan and heat over medium flame until hot. Do not let the oil turn brown or start smoking — if this happens, discard the oil and try again. Carefully place the stuffed blintzes flap-side down into the hot oil, and warm them in batches of three — this will give you space to turn them easily in the pan. The blintzes should fry for 1½ to 2 minutes until they’re brown and crispy. Serve warm. 5. You can serve the blintzes plain, or add some whip, strawberry sauce, caramel cream — or whatever else you may fancy.

Dairy Chocolate Goodness Bites Ingredients 2½ sticks butter, cubed 1 cup brown sugar 1 cup sugar 2½ cups flour ¼ tsp. salt 2 tsp. baking powder ¼ tsp. baking soda 2 eggs 3 cups dairy chocolate chips 2 bars dairy chocolate, topping
Directions 1. Place butter cubes into a mixer, and mix until you’re left with smaller pieces — the butter shouldn’t be whipped. Next, add the brown sugar and sugar until you have small nuggets of butter and sugar. Then add the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda — and again, you want clumps, not a smooth mixture. Add the eggs and mix, letting it stay crumbly. Last, add the chocolate chips and mix again. Bring the dough together with your hands and form balls, about 1 generous tablespoon per cookie. 2. Place formed balls on a cookie sheet or tray and freeze overnight or for a minimum of 6 to 7 hours before baking. 3. Preheat the oven to 375° and place the cookie sheet in the oven so that it gets hot. When the oven is preheated, carefully place the balls onto the cookie sheet, with plenty of space between each cookie. Bake the cookies for about 17 to 20 minutes and let them cool. 4. Melt the two bars of dairy chocolate and drizzle over the cookies for some added pizzazz. 5. Freeze cookies, and allow to thaw for an hour or two before serving.

If Pesach is the yom tov of flour (or no-flour, as the case may be), Shavuos is the yom tov of… flowers. That’s why it makes perfect sense to write about all of the wonderful ways to enhance our yom tov seudos with edible flowers. However, when I set out to find out more about which flowers are edible, I realized that in my almost 30 years in Eretz Yisroel, I have yet to see any edible flowers for sale in the local market (save for sunflower seeds and safflower oil), and I didn’t quite know where to begin. Herring I could write about, as my hit recipe of the Pesach season was homemade tilapia schmaltz herring in wine sauce. But, of course, this was neither made from (nor, frankly, smelled like) flowers, so it was no eitzah. So, my game plan was to do some field research, schlepping to Machane Yehudah, where they sell everything edible that’s kosher (or is it everything kosher that’s edible?). I was on the hunt for a food-flower seller whose brain I could pick, and maybe I would also peruse the “flower sections” of a few upscale restaurants along the way. All this, of course, was before the coronavirus pandemic struck, closing not only the market and restau-

rants, but also the bus service to get there, as well as my legal right to venture more than a hundred meters from my home. So, with my deadline fast approaching, and with my seeking authenticity, my only remaining option was to head out to our small backyard garden and start munching. “What are you doing?” my wife asked me as she watched me popping some petals of her favorite red geraniums into my mouth. “I’m working,” I answered. “I think you’ve been housebound for too long,” she muttered, bemused, before leaving me to my meshugas. But it did yield some to’eles. I found out that rose petals taste fresh and fruity, sort of like the loquat fruit they sell here regularly (and in New York around Tu B’Shvat time). I later learned that the petals of each of the over 150 species of roses are edible, though they don’t all taste the same, and that the best-smelling roses are also the best-tasting ones, which makes “sense,” as the two sens-
May 20, 2020 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 139 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
es are related. Besides being eaten raw, like in my garden-side snack, or mixed into various fruit or green salads, rose petals can be dried and added to granola or mixed herbs. (In the aforementioned market, the spice sellers sell small dried pink roses by the ounce that smell like Gan Eden.) Rose petals can also be muddled (i.e., pressed and bruised with a pestle to let out their flavor) and added to liquids to create rose-infused beverages, jellies and jams, and especially the fragrant and exotic rose water (more on that soon). Rose hips, the small, sour fruits that form on the rosebush after the flowers are pollinated, are packed with vitamin C, and some say that certain compounds in roses can reduce anxiety, helping one to relax. As mentioned, I also sampled our homegrown geraniums, which were lemony and tasted like their pleas-
ant smell. They also make great edible decorations for cakes, iced desserts and other confections. Like other small edible flowers, they can be put into ice trays, covered with water, and frozen to form gorgeous floral ice cubes. The leaves are also edible and can be chopped and added to soft butter for a flowery treat at your milchig Shavuos kiddush. We don’t have that many flowering plants in our garden, so next I went for a stretch: the little yellow flowers clustered on the center stalk of our six-foottall aloe vera plant. These were pungent and tasted
140 / THE MONSEY VIEW / May 20, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
like Chinese bean sprouts, though I didn’t yet have the chance to cook them to see whether they’d keep this quality in a stir fry. Besides the flowers, much of the aloe vera plant is both edible and medicinal. Some of the touted uses of the juicy gel that fills this succulent cactus-like plant’s leaves are as an anti-cavity toothpaste; to relieve pain from ulcers; reduce depression and improve memory; gently alleviate constipation; and reduce scarring from second-degree household burns. I first discovered this last benefit many years ago, when I’d gotten a minor but nasty burn at the health food restaurant I’d been cheffing for at the time. When the owner appeared with a cut aloe leaf, I was puzzled. But following instructions, I smeared some of its juice (goo, really) onto my hand, bandaged it, and when I woke up the next morning, there was nary a trace of neither scar nor pain. And just recently, of course, when the coronavirus first hit here in Eretz Yisroel, and hand sanitizer, never a very popular item here, sold out its small supply from stores overnight, the aloe vera plant proved very “handy.” Mixing its pulp-juice (30%) with alcohol (70%) made a great homemade sanitizer substitute. My great garden experiment abruptly ended when I pondered biting into one of our calla lilies that had recently bloomed, until my research revealed they were poisonous! (Of course, I made sure the other flowers were edible before I munched on them — what, do you think I wouldn’t?) Other popular edible flowers include: Hibiscus flower: A large, colorful blossom that grows in Eretz Yisroel and other warm climates. Hibiscus can be eaten raw but is often used to make a citrusy, deep-red herbal tea (sometimes coupled with rose hips). Some claim that hibiscus can have a positive impact on cholesterol and blood pressure. Dandelion: This ubiquitous, nudnicky weed is actually a

highly nutritious edible flower (as is the rest of the plant). Eaten raw or cooked, dandelion can be used to make a variety of foods, from jelly to wine. Lavender: This small, light-violet flower grows wild in my neck of the woods and has a distinct aroma. It can be eaten fresh or dried and goes well with a variety of ingredients, such as citrus, berries and savory herbs. Some put small sacks of dried lavender under their pillows, as the scent is supposed to help one sleep. It’s also known as a natural mosquito repellent. I sometimes dab a little lavender oil around my
There are many great flower-based recipes out there (lavender cheesecake, anyone?), but one I’d like to share with you is for a rose water–flavored confection known as Turkish Delight. This chewy, colorful confection, which can be a sweet Shavuos treat, is actually the precursor of the modern jelly bean! Here’s the traditional recipe.
Rose Water Turkish Delight Ingredients 4 cups sugar
1½ T. rose water
4½ cups water, divided
2 or 3 drops red food coloring (optional)
1¼ cups cornstarch 2 tsp. lemon juice
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 tsp. cream of tartar

ears before I go to sleep to keep the m o s q u it o s away. (I don’t mind if they bite me; just don’t buzz in my ear and wake me up!) Honeysuckle: We actually do have this in our garden, but it has yet to bloom this year. Honeysuckle has a strong, intoxicating scent, and its “honey” — the nectar in its center stamen — is truly as sweet as honey and can be “suckled” right from the flower (kids love to do this). These and all flowers, of course, need to be inspected for insects. Some are more susceptible to infestation than others, and you should consult a posek familiar with these matters.

1. Line a 9x9” baking pan with aluminum foil. Spray the lined pan with nonstick cooking spray. 2. Place the (granulated) sugar, lemon juice, and 1½ cups of the water in a medium-size saucepan over medium heat. Stir until the sugar dissolves, and bring the mixture to a boil. 3. Insert a candy thermometer. Boil the sugar mixture, without stirring, until it reaches 240° on the thermometer (it will take approximately 45 to 60 minutes). 4. While the mixture is boiling up to temperature, place the remaining 3 cups of water into another, slightly larger, saucepan. Add the cornstarch and cream of tartar, and whisk until the starch dissolves with no lumps. 5. Bring this second mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring or whisking continuously. It will become thick and pasty. 6. Once the sugar syrup is at 240°, remove it from the heat. Slowly and carefully pour it into the cornstarch mixture, whisking it in until the two mixtures are fully blended. 7. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for about an hour, whisking every 8 to 10 minutes, until the candy has turned

for the whole family... & all those extra guests.
9. Pour the candy mixture into the prepared pan and allow it to sit overnight, uncovered (or, if you’re concerned about bugs, covered with an air-permeable cloth), until set.
11. Enjoy your “delight”!
As I was finishing up this article, my wife mentioned that a special yellow tulip from a bulb she’d planted back in the winter was finally starting to bloom. “Really? Maybe I can eat it,” I said. But, hey! Why was the door to the garden locked? Nesanel Yoel Safran is a writer, chef and student of Torah and life.

10. The next day, dust a large cutting board (or other work station) with the confectioners’ sugar. Using the foil as handles, flip the foiled, solidified candy onto the sugared surface. Slip off the foil from the back, and dust the top of the candy with additional sugar. With an oiled chef’s knife, cut the candy into small squares, dusting all sides of the squares with powdered sugar to prevent sticking.

From Oberlander & Co. “Many of the local small business owners I service are dependent on the yom tov shopping season to cover the costs of running a store all year round, and to be able to support themselves and their family. They stock up pre-season using loans; With the current peak season crash, many have been le� with a great amount of merchandise and no way to pay oﬀ those loans, which are accumulating interest at a rapid pace. Of course, the vendors will not supply them with next season's merchandise unless they are paid in full, which will leave them without any way to cover their losses unless the community helps them now”

There’s something very refreshing about setting a table in the summertime — especially when it’s for Shavuos! The light and bright colors, the fresh flowers — and delicious cheesecakes, of course! — create a mood of pure joy. Here’s an idea to add to your Shavuos table collection. These tulip goblets will pop on any table. Choose to stick to colors that match your tableware, or have fun adding new colors to your usual look. You need time and patience to create these hand-painted masterpieces, but the satisfaction you’ll feel when they’re all done makes it all so worth it! 150 / THE MONSEY VIEW / May 20, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
Supplies: Stemware Enamel gloss paint Soft-bristle flat paintbrush Plastic plate Cup of water (for cleaning the paintbrush) Paper towel (for drying the paintbrush) All supplies can be purchased online or at local craft and home goods stores.
Choose your paint colors:
Before you begin:
Best is to buy a variety pack of small paints. Very little paint is used for each glass.
Clean the glasses from any dust or dirt, and make sure they’re completely dry.
Here’s a list of colors you will need. Feel free to paint each one differently, or to paint all glasses the same color.
Spread a plastic tablecloth or newspapers on your work surface. Prepare all of your supplies.
• White • Yellow • Green • Light purple • Dark purple Purple can be made by mixing red and blue. Make it lighter by mixing with white paint, or darker by adding a bit of blue and red.
Things to remember while painting: Wash and dry your paintbrush in between colors. Be careful not to touch areas of the glass that have wet paint!
• Red • Pink Pink can be made by mixing red and white. • Orange Orange can be made by mixing red and yellow.
Painting on glass: Find the painting position that’s the most comfortable for you. You can leave the glass sitting on the table or hold it in one hand while painting with the other.
Color guide: Each tulip needs three colors/shades to create a 3D effect of overlapping petals. There’s the base color (pink, orange, yellow, light purple), a lightening color (white for most, and yellow for the orange tulip), and a darkening color (red, orange, dark purple). • Pink tulip: pink, white, red • Orange tulip: orange, yellow, red • Yellow tulip: yellow, white, orange • Purple tulip: light purple, white, dark purple
Use the paintbrush very lightly. Do not press hard on the glass, as doing this will create deep brushstroke marks and leave “empty” spaces of glass. Leave a considerable amount of space empty at the top rim of the glass, so the paint shouldn’t reach the drinker’s mouth.
May 20, 2020 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 151 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
2. Working on one petal at a time, paint a layer of the base color. Paint long, neat strokes, as theyâ€™re very visible.
1. Draw the petal outlines. Starting at the tips, draw teardrop shapes. Draw four or five overlapping petals per glass.
3. Paint a second layer of the base color.

Add the lightening color (white or yellow) on the left side of the petal, blending it in the middle.
Blend the three shades accordingly. You may want to add some more of the base color to the middle of the petal.
7. Continue with the above instructions for the rest of the petals, working to the right. Slightly overlap each petal, contrasting the lightest part over the dark.

Blooms Worthy of Mention COLORED HYDRANGEAS are unusual in
their ability to measure levels of soil acidity. Want to turn your pink hydrangeas blue? Regularly bury some coffee grounds or citrus peels in the ground to add acidity to the soil around your plant, and by next year, your newly colored hydrangeas will appear, out of the blue…
The Arrangement of Color The beauty and elegance of flowers don’t end with each individual bloom; pair them together, play with height and hue, and you’ve got an arrangement worthy of attention. And we’re not the first ones to think so, either. Going back to ancient times, it seems that civilizations across the world also understood the language of floral design. Archeologists have turned up flower vases of ancient Egypt, and Japan, for centuries, has been studying the art of what they call ikebana, which has inspired simple and linear-styled arrangements in floristry worldwide. There are many kinds of floral bouquet designs, from neat handheld NOSEGAYS and CASCADING BOUQUETS, to more modernlooking bunches of a more simple aesthetic.

Then, upping the game, there are BIEDERMEIER-STYLE BOUQUETS, with each type of flower arranged in concentric circles, and POMANDER ARRANGEMENTS, which are gorgeous flower balls often attached to ribbon handles for easy carrying or hanging.

Free-standing arrangements are often of the traditional ENGLISH STYLE, which can be appreciated from every angle, and then there are arrangements designed to be enjoyed only from one side. Whatever the design, a pretty arrangement needs choice blooms, and even more importantly, an eye for color, balance and style. A pomander arrangement

The SUNFLOWER, a sunny bloom if there ever was one, can provide more than just a pretty visual. This wonderful flower has the ability to soak up toxins from the soil in addition to the nutrients it needs, and this is the reason fields and fields of sunflowers were planted in both post-disaster Chernobyl, Ukraine, and Hiroshima, Japan. The sunflowers helped clean up radiation-damaged terrain and water sources, and they cost significantly less than removing and replacing contaminated soil.
The MOONFLOWER, of the morning glory family, is a perfectly round white or pink blossom. While it also resembles the full moon, the uniqueness of the moonflower is that it only opens at night, revealing its beauty only to the moon. As soon as the morning sun hits its petals, the blossom hides, until the next evening. The DAFFODIL is the national flower of Wales, and in one royal instance, it is used as a form of payment!

The Principles of Floral Design
for the Isles of Scilly, which is part of his personal assets as Duke of Cornwall. Over in Scotland, the prickly and spiny THISTLE is the national flower. Legend has it that sometime in the 1200s, an invading Norse army made their arrival known — much too prematurely — when a barefoot soldier stepped on a thistle and cried out. This unintended cry of warning gave the Scots the ability to ward off their enemy, and their gratitude to the humble thistle remains part of their history until today.
A cotton, or Scottish, thistle
The first principle is BALANCE, which provides an arrangement with stability. If a design is symmetrical, then maintaining balance is simple, but with an asymmetrical design, when one side extends higher than the other, it may be necessary to add weight, as in heavier clusters right above the container, to the other side. It’s also important to remember the SCALE. A small alcove requires only a small design, but a large room can afford a larger arrangement. Also, maintain a sense of proportion between the flowers and their container, as well as between one flower and the next. When designing an arrangement, one element of style needs to take DOMINANCE. This can be a repeated color choice, texture or size that will result in an arrangement that is harmoniously pleasing to the eyle.
While there are several plants A chocolate daisy that have that intoxicating chocolatey scent, the CHOCOLATE COSMOS and CHOCOLATE DAISY flowers offer pretty blooms as well, providing both an olfactory and visual feast, all at once. While this fact may or may not have your kids appreciate this green veggie on their supper plate, it is interesting to note that BROCCOLI is, in fact, a flower! However, the veggie-flower is harvested to eat before the blooms appear, which is why the edible broccoli would indeed look rather odd in your Shavuos bouquet.
Another principle to remember is creating RHYTHM. Whether an arrangement has a focal point or not, you want someone viewing the flowers to enjoy the entire design, eyes moving along with the patterns and line of direction for the complete experience. Any good florist or layman with an appreciation of flowers knows that COLOR plays a huge role in the mood an arrangement creates. Choose the colors that are most likely to inspire the feelings you’re looking for, and use contrast to hold interest. ORIENTATION means remembering to style the arrange-
ment around an axis, without losing some of the design when flowers appear to meet in different places.
Florals and the First Family Many members of the White House staff have little to do with the politics of the day and more to do with maintaining the most famous home of the country. One of these staff members is the White House chief floral designer, who is in charge of the florals decorating the White House, both for everyday enjoyment and for state functions and other events. Located in the basement of the Executive Residence is the White House Flower Shop, where everything floral comes together. The chief floral designer plans and designs arrangements based upon the specifications of the first lady, as well as the chief usher and social secretary, and there are special considerations when planning arrangements for major affairs involving visiting heads of states or dignitaries. Certain flowers have different symbolic meanings in different cultures, so care is taken not to offend visiting diplomats, and attention is also given to their personal favorites. In the words of Dottie Temple, chief floral designer during the Nixon, Ford, Carter and Reagan administrations, “President Francois Mitterand of France loved roses,” and “Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher fancied anemones.”

A chashuva talmid of HaGaon HaRav Yosef Tzvi Dashinsky zt"l related the following hair-raising story which he heard from his Rebbe:
here was once a terrible mageifa in the city of Kalamayer l"a. In response to this, HaGaon HaRav Hillel Kalamayer zt"l declared a taanis for the whole city. Towards the end of the taanis, the rav gave a fiery, heartfelt drasha on the topic of tznius. He spoke specifically about the sheitels which the women started wearing then, instead of tichels. The women were so inspired that they began throwing down their sheitels from the women's gallery (and they instinctively covered their heads with kerchiefs). Immediately afterwards, the mageifa stopped! (Am Segulah Chelek 2, pg.692)
