REB YAAKOV’S VORT (Re: Inspiration on the Parsha, Issue 249) Shalom u’bracha. I’d like to compliment the writer of the dvar Torah on Parshas Bamidbar. It was well written and given over very nicely. I just wanted to point out an incorrect attribution. It was Reb Yaakov Kamenetzky, zt”l, who said that vort 45 years ago, and not, lbcl”c, Reb Chaim Kanievksy, shlit”a. The names must have been confused. I would love to hear where the writer sourced this attribution. Thank you, and keep up the good work. Aryeh Schechter

MALKA SCHNEPS RESPONDS: The source for its being Rav Kanievsky’s vort is the sefer Talelei Oros on Parshas Bamidbar, written by R’ Yissachar Dov Rubin.

A KASHRUS NIGHTMARE (Re: Stop and Taste the Flowers, Issue 249) As the wife of a mashgiach, I’ve heard again and again about the many types of infestations found in flowers waiting to be plated for exclusive simchos, often leaving mashigichim with no choice but to throw them out, and how time-consuming and complicated the checking process is. Your article about edible flowers, which mentioned the author “popping some petals” into his mouth, left me horrified and sickened. After reading two more pages on how wonderful eating flowers is, I

found a couple of sentences about checking for bugs and consulting a posek. Talk about burying the lead! The advice to consult a posek should have been in the opening paragraph, not hidden at the end. Statistics show that most people only read the first third or so of an article, and then skip to the next article. Those beautiful pictures entice people to emulate dangerous behavior and can cause thousands of innocent Yidden to violate halacha all in the name of a pretty plate. What would have been a wonderful and inspiring article is a kashrus nightmare waiting to happen. And how sad that when a mageifah gives us the time to stop and smell the flowers, some forget that those pretty flowers are also jam-packed with bugs. Please note that on occasion there are small containers of edible orchids found in one or two of Monsey’s supermarkets. These seem to be the only ones ever available locally. And if one looks closely at the packaging, they will note that the flowers are very rarely marked “checked,” and most often marked “unchecked.” Like raspberries and artichokes, in this writer’s opinion, flower-checking should be left to the experts. Chavie K.
A ONE-SIDED ISSUE (Re: Political Pulse, Issue 249) I really enjoy your politics column. You are often the only one to objectively analyze both sides of an issue. But sometimes an issue only has one side. The case of General Flynn is a matter of right and wrong. You write that Michael Flynn “lied to the FBI.” I am unsure of how you know this as a fact; an FBI agent actually wrote after interviewing Flynn that it was apparent from Flynn’s body language that he was not lying. He later changed his views in order to prosecute Flynn. You also write that Flynn admitted to his crimes and pleaded guilty. The truth is that he didn’t; not at first. But then they threatened to put his
64 / THE MONSEY VIEW / May 27, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
kid in jail, so Flynn pleaded guilty to protect his son. Your article also makes no mention of the fact that he is now retracting his plea, since new documents have come to light. I can write pages about the injustice done to Flynn, a war hero who gave 30 years of his life to this country. But my point is simple: Honest reporting means reporting all facts. Framing this as a two-sided issue, as if both parties are equally wrong here, is a great disservice — and not just to truth, but to justice. Riki AVROHOM LEVI RESPONDS: Thank you for your feedback; it is most appreciated. I write that General Flynn lied to the FBI, because he seemingly does not contest that allegation. In the motion to withdraw the plea filed by Flynn’s lawyers, they argue that the government breached the plea agreement by recommending that Flynn receive jail time. The motion also claims that omissions regarding Turkey on Flynn’s FARA form were the fault of the lawyers who prepared the form, and not of Mr. Flynn. The argument in Mr. Flynn’s favor is not that he was truthful with the FBI, but rather that his lies were immaterial, as the FBI already had wiretapped evidence of his conversations with Kislyak. Writing for The Hill, Alan Dershowitz makes the point succinctly: “They are asking whether Flynn lied or the FBI acted improperly as if the answers to those two questions are mutually exclusive. The possibility that both are true, in that Flynn did not tell the truth and that the FBI acted improperly, is not considered in our hyperpartisan world, where everyone, including the media, chooses a side and refuses to consider the chance that their side is not perfectly right and the other side not perfectly evil.” As for the point that you make regarding Flynn’s attempt to retract his plea: In the first paragraph of the in-depth analysis of the Flynn saga that appeared in the May 20th edition, it clearly states that “Flynn has attempted to withdraw his guilty plea on the basis that he was delib-

erately set up by the FBI.” I imagine that your criticism is in reference to the brief summary that appeared on May 13, which did not mention Flynn’s attempt to withdraw his plea. I apologize for that omission.
RE: SIMCHOS OF THE FUTURE
(Inbox, Issue 249) R.K.’s letter last week about changing our chasunah standards was true to its point and surely voiced the opinion of many others. However, calling upon the masses to “start lowering the standards” and implement the drastic changes that many people are now suggesting, like celebrating chasunos in homes, giving fake jewelry, etc., is highly unrealistic and will b’derech hateva not materialize. (I wouldn’t mind if it does, but turning a blind eye and being unrealistic doesn’t do any good.) Instead, each individual should Call us today and we will make their own subtle changes and make your house look minor spending reductions, little by brand-new again! little, without being worried about how it will be perceived by others. Each person and family has their unique priorities and feelings about what is doable for them and what is not.

RE: AT THE OTHER SIDE OF THE TELEPHONE (Inbox, Issue 248) Dear Teacher, You are right. I stand corrected. While my intention was merely to introduce the week’s installment with some humor, considering the tremendous efforts our teachers invest in teaching our children, I admit it may have been hurtful, and I apologize. Regarding your protest about my comment that “teachers do not need to teach right now while simultaneously rocking a stroller… and stuffing egg salad…” allow me to point out that the words “right now” were not in the original column. I was comparing between a teacher in a classroom, and a mother trying to entertain kids of multiple ages at home (in our case — from age two to seventeen). I still maintain that that is a gap that is not found in the standard classroom, though making that point should not have made it sound like the teachers have it “easy.” We all know how far from the truth that is! As I said, I do apologize for using humor that may have seemed disrespectful to our wonderful teachers’ work, and at the same time I will fervently agree with your description of the hard work that teachers have to put in now, in addition to going through what the rest of us are going through. I know, because my own husband is a teacher. In his school, there are no conference calls. The teachers leave a recorded lesson, then a recorded test, the children then leave recorded answers, then recorded comments and questions… It goes on and on and on, and can get overwhelming to the point of being impossible. I am fully with you on the huge applause that our special teachers all

YOUR VOICE THE RESPONSIBILITY TO OBEY Baruch Hashem, the weather is turning more and more beautiful. It is so special to spend time outdoors with family. But, please, when visiting local parks, remember to obey all park rules. The past two weeks, at various parks and lakes, children were seen running up and down the playground equipment, though they was clearly roped off with caution tape and large posters were displayed in Yiddish and English forbidding their use due to COVID-19. Because we are bnei melachim, we have a huge responsibility to behave in that manner wherever we go. When a non-Jew is seen using the playground illegally, it generally doesn’t make waves. However, when a Yid is seen using the playground illegally, a person may stop, take a picture, and post it, and it can then go viral and cause an endless chillul Hashem. We do not, chas v’shalom, want to be the cause of that. So, go ahead, and take your bikes, scooters, rollerblades, hoverboards, or just take a stroll around the park. But all in the right manner and frame of mind, and while following all guidelines.

UPON ENTERING HIS HOUSE I’d like to share a thought about the current situation. Hakadosh Baruch Hu has sent us a very strong wake-up call, and it’s time to reevaluate our position in this world and to remember that we are here as in a vestibule to prepare for the great banquet hall of Olam Haba. Every person knows in which area he needs to improve, and hopefully these issues are being addressed individually. There is one communal area, though, where we can all do better and that has, baruch Hashem, finally become more relevant. By this I mean the halachos of kedushas beis haknesses u’beis midrash, which is an extension of the mitzvah of morah mikdash. There are specific halachos in Shulchan Aruch, Orech Chaim (siman 151), which we have to learn and be mekayim l’maaseh. But to make it meaningful, lasting and to master it fully, we can try this easy yet quite effective hachanah: As we head to shul, or to beis midrash to learn, we should think for a moment, “I am going into a makom kadosh.” And when entering we should think, “I am entering the House of Hashem!” This small conscious hachanah will instill a subconscious awareness and a subliminal feeling of the chashuvas and kedushas hamakom. The more that one is ragil to make this hachanah, the more the awareness becomes an integral part of him, and as time goes by, he will find that the halachos of kavod beis haknesses are ingrained within him and easy to be mekayim. Haba l’taheir mesayin oso. Y.M. Shain EDITOR’S BULLETIN: We regret that there was a mistake in last week’s recipes for “The Blintz Passed Along.” The milk (3 cups) was inadvertently omitted from the ingredient list.

PA RS H A S N A SS O The girls in the first grade class at Torah Academy were completing a worksheet when there was a knock on the classroom door. The girls looked up to see their principal in the doorway, and they stood up in respect. â€œMrs. Levine, would it be okay if I spoke with the class privately for a moment?â€? the principal asked the teacher. â€œAbsolutely,â€? Mrs. Levine answered. â€œIâ€™ll wait in the hallway.â€? After Mrs. Levine left the classroom, the principal addressed the girls. â€œYou have had a wonderful year of growth and learning, and you have much to be thankful for. Soon the year will end and you will leave for summer vacation, and next year you will have a new teacher. I am sure that you would all like to thank Mrs. Levine for all she has taught you this year.â€? The girls nodded their heads
and waited to hear more. â€œI have printed out a coloring sheet with a pre-printed thank-you note and a cheerful picture. Each of you is to take the coloring sheet home and color it in nicely. I will collect them from you tomorrow at this time, and at the end-of-year assembly, we will present them to your teacher.â€? The principal handed out the thank-you notes, and each girl packed it away in her briefcase, colored it at home, and returned it to the principal as directed. At the end-of-year assembly, Mrs. Levine was surprised and delighted to receive the stack of thank-you notes from her class. When she returned home that evening, she read through each one. The notes all featured the exact same pictures and the exact same words, but each one was colored differently. Some girls underlined certain words that had more meaning for them, while other girls highlighted different words. Some girls spent more time coloring certain parts of the picture, while others emphasized other parts of the picture. One girl in particular, who was very close to the teacher, spent a very long time working on hers, highlighting each letter in the note with a different color crayon, and really turning her picture into a masterpiece. The girls all gave what appeared to be the same exact thank-you note, but in reality, each note was as unique as the girl who colored it. Parshas Nasso describes the opening of the newly erected Mishkan. The nasi of each shevet brought the first korbanos to the Mishkan, one nasi per day. On the first day, Nachshon ben Aminadav from Shevet Yehudah came: â€œVâ€™korbano kaâ€™aras kesef achas shloshim umeiâ€™ah mishkalahâ€Ś â€” And his offering was one silver bowl weighing 130 shekels, one silver basin of 70 shekelsâ€Śâ€? The list goes on in great detail, and

the Torah uses 53 words to describe the korbanos that Nachshon ben Aminadav brought to the Mishkan. On each of the next eleven days, each nasi brings the exact same korbanos as Nachshon ben Aminadav, and the Torah repeats the list in the same detail. The Torah, which never wastes a single word, uses the same 53 words to describe the identical korbanos of each nasi, for a total of twelve times. Why would the Torah write out the same exact list twelve times, rather than simply writing the list once, saying that each of the nesiyim brought these korbanos on each of the first twelve days? The Midrash explains that although it might appear as though the nesiyim all brought the same korbanos since the list of korbanos was the same, in reality, each nasi had a different kavanah (Bamidbar Rabbah 13:14). Because each nasi had a unique kavanah when bringing his korbanos, his korbanos were unique. Similarly, we all daven the same exact tefillos every day. We all say Shema, and we all daven Shemoneh Esrei. In reality, each one of us has unique kavanos, so our tefillos are unique. The girls in the story above all colored the same picture for their teacher, but each girl emphasized a different aspect, according to her feelings and her relationship with the teacher. Likewise, each of us brings a unique dimension to the tefillos we daven. Our tefillos are all unique and are all needed. Whether we are davening with the tzibbur or alone at home, our tefillos and those of other people truly count, and each is precious in Hashem’s eyes.

Numerous Restrictions in Place as Cuomo Allows Limited Minyanim After weeks of being officially shuttered by New York State, shuls are allowed to open their doors once again under a plan announced by Governor Andrew Cuomo that includes a lengthy list of limitations. “At this time of stress and when people are so anxious and so confused, I think those religious ceremonies can be very comforting,” said Cuomo. “But we need to find out how to do it, and do it safely, and do it smartly. The last thing we want to do is have a religious ceremony that winds up having more people infected.” Under the new guidelines, people are permitted to daven indoors, with minyanim restricted to a maximum of ten people in each building. A shul that has multiple buildings could have ten people in each one, as long as each building has its own entrance and exit. Anyone touching a shared object in shul, such as a sefer Torah, is required to wear gloves, and congregants who do not live in the same household must remain six feet apart from each other at all times. That distance would be doubled to twelve feet during any singing, a provision that is likely linked to a Centers for Disease Control report on a Washington choir practice attended by 61 individuals that resulted in 52 cases of coronavirus, two of which proved to be fatal. According to The New York Times, because people project their voices at a loud volume when they sing, they are more likely to emit virus-carrying droplets into the air. “When you project your voice, you can project more virus,” said the local county health officer, Dr. Howard Leibrand, commenting on the incident in the beginning of May. “So, it seems like this would be a pretty good indicator we shouldn’t be going back to large groups singing in an enclosed space … because that would be the same sort of situation as this.” The guidelines also recommend leaving doors and windows open to ensure adequate ventilation. People are also encouraged to bring their own siddurim and chumashim to shul to avoid touching communal seforim as another way to prevent the spread of the virus.
At Long Last, Albany OKs First Phase of Reopening in Hudson Valley It was good news for Hudson Valley residents as Gov-
82 / THE MONSEY VIEW / May 27, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
ernor Andrew Cuomo gave the region the go-ahead to begin the first phase of his four-part plan to reopen after the number of hospital deaths finally dipped below statemandated levels. The Hudson Valley, which includes Rockland, Orange, Sullivan, Westchester, Dutchess, Ulster and Putnam counties, was the eighth of New York’s ten regions to be greenlighted by the governor. Cuomo made the announcement on Shabbos, saying that he expected the Hudson Valley to have the required number of contract tracers in place by Tuesday, allowing construction, manufacturing, agriculture and wholesale trade to resume, with curbside pickup or in-store pickup or drop-off allowed at retailers. The reopening will be a gradual process, with Albany monitoring the outcome of each phase for two weeks before allowing any area to proceed to the second phase, which will open up professional services, retail stores, barbershops, hair and nail salons, administrative support and real estate. Restaurants, food service businesses and hotels are part of the third stage of the governor’s plan, with entertainment, recreation and schools included in the fourth and final phase. Doubt continues to swirl on whether camps will open this summer or schools will start on time in September. Hoping to impress upon the governor the need to get schools up and running again as quickly as possible, Senator Simcha Felder sent a letter to Cuomo asking him to bump schools up to the first phase of his plan, explaining that remote learning is ineffective for the many private school families who do not use online learning platforms. Felder also noted that while students are struggling, the special education population is facing “catastrophic, lifealtering repercussions,” because remote learning does not meet their educational needs. “New York’s students are our future and if we continue to delay their education, it will be at great financial and societal expense,” wrote Felder. “With the recently released guidance from the CDC on the procedures for [the safe] reopening of schools, it is time to move education into phase 1. When the experts determine we can enter phase 1 with proper health protocols in place, education must be at the forefront, not at the end.” Cuomo continued to emphasize the importance of masks and social distancing as the state’s regions continue reopening, noting that safety measures are important to prevent the further transmission of the virus. “Don’t underestimate this virus,” said Cuomo. “We know that it can rear its ugly head at any moment. But what do we need to do? It’s not rocket science. Wear a mask. Wash your hands. Social distance. Use hand sanitizer. But most of all, wear a mask.”

Hospital Visitors Allowed Under New Pilot Program A concerted effort to lobby Albany to lift its restrictions on hospital visitation has paid off, with Governor Andrew Cuomo announcing a two-week pilot program that will run through June 9. Hamodia reported that elected officials at the city, state and local levels lobbied Albany to reverse the ban that had kept nearly all visitors out of hospitals — and to allow volunteers who tested positive for coronavirus antibodies to stay with patients. Volunteers would serve as patient advocates and communicate with their family members, easing the burden on overworked hospital staff and providing relief to patients and their loved ones. The pilot program would have screened visitors clad in personal protective equipment staying with patients for a predetermined amount of time. It is being implemented in Maimonides Medical Center, Coney Island Hospital, Westchester Medical Center, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Lenox Hill Hospital, New York Presbyterian, NYU Langone Orthopedic, Hospital for Special Surgery, Jacobi Medical Center, Montefiore, Interfaith Medical Center, Richmond University Medical Center, Mt. Sinai Hospital in both Manhattan and Queens, two Long Island hospitals and four upstate hospitals. Assemblyman Simcha Eichenstein said that he is hopeful that the program can be further expanded. “These last two months have been heartbreaking,” said Assemblyman Simcha Eichenstein. “I have heard far too many tragic stories of patients who were forced to spend their last days alone at the hospital without a family member or caregiver to advocate for their basic needs.”
On the Verge of Financial Ruin, Small Businesses Call on Cuomo to Ease Restrictions Frustrated by weeks of closures, small business owners have banded together to protest the inequities that have prevented them from earning a living while large stores have been allowed to remain open under state guidelines. The coalition, titled Reopen NY, held a press conference in Lower Manhattan last week, calling on Governor Andrew Cuomo to allow them to open shop and save their businesses from collapse. The group pledged to operate their businesses safely by limiting foot traf-
84 / THE MONSEY VIEW / May 27, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
fic, following social distancing protocols for employees and patrons, and providing hand sanitizer and gloves for customers if necessary. A statement released by Reopen NY on May 20, signed by 289 businesses owners, said that while they understood the need to temporarily close down to help New York flatten the coronavirus curve, the extended shutdown has had devastating financial repercussions for them, their employees and others.
“We are talking about a basic, fundamental human right,” said attorney Ron Coleman, who represents Reopen New York. “Everyone is entitled to make a living.” Numerous small businesses opened their doors on May 24, in defiance of the standing orders, to demonstrate the need for their services, reported Hamodia. Many displayed Reopen New York signs in their windows, but things turned ugly as police responded to reports throughout the city of illegally opened stores and proceeded to shut them down. “The large corporate department stores like Target and Walmart, while being allowed to open to sell food, sanitizing supplies and the like, are also permitted to sell toys, clothing and a whole host of other items,” said one customer waiting on line to enter a store. “As a resident of the community, we want to show our solidarity with our local shops.” One particularly small business was slapped with a summons on Friday, with Yeshiva World News reporting that a group of children selling lemonade and popcorn on a Williamsburg sidewalk were shut down by the NYPD. The father of one of the children was charged with running a social gathering and ordered to appear in court in September.

Recap: Blumi and Elisheva have a warm conversation in which Elisheva tells Blumi about her father’s past and the fact that despite his efforts, he was never able to obtain any information about his identity. “Where’s Mommy?” Miri closed the door to her parents’ house behind her, and smiled as her younger brothers fell upon their nephew. “Mommy’s on the phone with her millionaire,” Chani said, calmly rescuing the baby from her younger brothers’ hands. “With whom?” “She has a new friend from England,” Esti explained. “She calls here like twice a day. Don’t ask. They realized that they both went to school in Zichron Meir as girls, but that this Blumi was a grade older than Mommy. But they still share childhood memories of Bnei Brak, school and all kinds of ancient contests they had back then — that type of thing. As if Mommy is bored and needs a new way to fill her time.” “Twice a day?” The description amused Miri. “About. Okay, maybe there are days when it’s only once. But trust me, they speak often enough!” “What does she call Mommy about? She’s the one from the silver yad, right?” “Yes. They are sponsoring the seudah for the hachnasas sefer Torah, and pekelach for the kids. She calls Mommy to ask her about every little thing — first course, dessert, what to put into the pekelach, what kind of torches they’ll distribute to the kids, and what kind of van they should rent for the
parade.” “Van?” Miri opened the fridge, looking for something cold to drink. “Yes, a van with lights! And a crown!” Yitzy bounced around her, and Bentzy and Shloimy started dancing around the table. “Shmuely also wants to dance!” Uncle Yitzy said. “He’ll watch you from here.” Miri smiled at her son who was still being firmly held by his responsible aunt. “Nu, sing some hachnasas sefer Torah songs so he should get familiar with them already!” Under the cover of the singing-cum-shrieking, as the little ones began dancing boisterously in front of Shmuely, she leaned over to Chani and asked, “Is this millionaire lady connected somehow to the millionaire man from Australia? Or this apartment? Or both?” “Of course not!” Chani looked at her in surprise. “Only the yad was from her. I mean, it is hers. She didn’t even mean to give it to us. And Binyamin told me that he wrote an apology letter, and that Mommy and Tatty faxed it over to her.” Miri nodded, her expression inscrutable. She hadn’t yet met Binyamin since she’d revealed his secret to their mother. She had no idea what he was feeling toward her. “Because he was supposed to take care of

it for her, but instead he lost it.” Eleven-year-old Esti played with the knob of the corner cabinet. “Not that I really understand what exactly happened… although I guess it’s not my business anyway. But she’s not connected to any of the other new things. This house is from the U’shemartem auction, and the millionaire is from Australia.” “Right,” Chani said. “And this Blumi is from England. So I can’t see how any of these things would be connected.” “So how much time do they spend talking to each other?” Miri asked. “How much longer will this phone call take?” “No way to know. Sometimes forty-five minutes.” Esti was very encouraging. “But sometimes it only takes ten minutes.” Chani smiled at her nephew. “So basically, it’s an average of twenty-seven and a half minutes.” She glanced at the clock. “Now it’s about twenty-two minutes since she called. I checked. So you have a good chance that in about five minutes, Mommy will be all yours.” *****
New York, 5709/1949 “Are you not sleeping, Ulush?” Janek looked at the clock. “That’s a shame, because Surah finally fell asleep… What are you doing there?” “Writing letters.” “To Gustav and Edo?” “Who else do I have to write to, if not them?” She folded the two papers and slid them into the envelopes she had prepared. “What did you write about in your letters?” “I told them a bit about America, the streets, the people…” “I hope you didn’t describe too much.” The edges of his eyes twitched. “It would be a shame if you were to tempt them to come to America and prevent them from realizing that dream.” “I don’t think my descriptions would make anyone want to

come here.” Her lips attempted a smile. “On the other hand, I didn’t make us sound too pitiful — don’t worry.” “Worry? I’m not worried.” He fingered the edge of his blanket. “And if I am worried about someone, it’s you. When things
long come for him to do this. He left the orphanage in Yerushalayim early one morning, without telling anyone. He arrived in Bnei Brak late that afternoon. He walked slowly through the streets, trying to find the address that Ulush had

She had no idea what he was feeling toward her. calm down there, would you want to travel to Eretz Yisroel to see how they’re doing?” “Very much,” she said. “But I know how vague ‘when things calm down’ really is.” “Because the situation there really is not clear,” Janek said simply. “I’m sorry, Ulush. I also love Gustav and Edo. I also put myself at risk for them and forged a bond with them. But since they are no longer in danger, I don’t think it would be wise on our part to do all kinds of things just because we miss them. True, the war is over, but the Arabs are still very unsettled.” “I’m not doing all kinds of things,” she replied. “I just wrote them letters, and I gave each one the other’s address. At the very least, they should be together. Who do they have in Eretz Yisroel besides one another?” *****
Eretz Yisroel, 5709/1949 Gustav really had no one. Edo, on the other hand, had a few new friends that he had made in the orphanage. But that was not the only reason why Gustav set out on his trip. The paper from Edo’s mother, which had been lost, galvanized him to find his friend. The time had
sent him, without asking anyone for help. Finally, he stood in front of the white building and squinted. Yerushalayim was nicer. Perhaps Edo would want to come back with him? No, he would probably want to go to his uncles and grow up there, with them. What about the fact that the paper, with his uncles’ names on it, had disappeared? It didn’t matter. It would be enough for the group that searched for people’s relatives to announce that a child by the name of Yosef Ludmir, from Petrzalka Street in Bratislava, was looking for his uncles. There was no one who had relatives from Europe who didn’t listen out to hear if they had been saved. “Edo?” The man with the short gray beard thought for a moment. “We don’t have a boy by that name here. Maybe he has a new name, a Jewish name?” “I don’t know,” Gustav said desperately. “In Europe we called him Edo. Maybe I can go from room to room to look for him? Even though it’s been more than a year since we were together, I will certainly recognize him. For sure.” “The children aren’t here right now; they went to pick fruits in the orchard,” the man said gently. “Maybe you’d like to go to the dining room in the
meantime? I’ll ask the cook for a bowl of soup for you. They’ll be back soon for supper.” It was tempting, and he was very hungry. “All right,” Gustav said quietly. “Thank you.” The soup arrived a few minutes later, fresh and steaming. It didn’t have as many vegetables as the soup in the Yerushalayim orphanage had, but it was still very tasty. He wondered what kind of food Edo usually got here; he knew it was nothing compared to what he would get when he would meet his relatives. Suddenly he heard voices from outside coming into the large dining room. Gustav leaped to his feet, abandoning his spoon. None of the boys had entered yet, but Edo had suddenly become a very real thing instead of someone who belonged to his memories of the war and the postwar period, beginning from that night when he had asked Theodore to please take the little boy in, because his mother was crying so much… Gustav listened closely to the noise of the children outside. There was a cacophony of voices, running footsteps, friendly calls… but there was no Edo among any of the names he heard. Maybe Edo really wasn’t here, and Ulush had just mixed up the address? Okay, it was called Batei Avot, but who said there wasn’t another place with a similar name? He retreated to the wall. But suddenly… Suddenly he saw Edo. It was him: short and smiling, running with two big oranges in his hands, hurrying along with the other children to… what was there in the corner? A box? Yes. They were all putting the fruits they had picked into the box. Gustav held his breath, studying Edo, who stood for a long moment peering into the box. Then Edo joined the other children as they jostled to wash their hands and raucously took their places at the tables. None of them noticed the empty side table and the lone boy standing next to it. Edo didn’t
notice either. He sat down next to another boy, picked up the plate that was there, studied it in the light, and then put it back down on the table. Did he really not see him? With his lips pressed together, Gustav slowly walked along the length of the wall until he reached the door. Then he turned on his heel, slipped out of the room, and disappeared. A few moments later, the man with the beard came to inquire if the soup had been good and if he wanted more — and also if he had found his Edo. But Gustav was no longer there. He was running breathlessly, without looking back, trying to dodge the light raindrops as best he could. He ran and ran until he got to the bus stop. Only then did he stop. And he could not help but think of that day in Bratislava when he had also fled in the rain. Then it had been strong rain — a storm, really; now it was just a light drizzle. And then he had been running from Theodore. Now he was running from Edo. Why meet him anyway? He couldn’t even tell him who his uncles were. Wouldn’t it be better to come back here later, when he could tell Edo everything? About his mother, who had cried that night in the wind, about the paper she had given him, and most importantly, who his relatives were? After all, he didn’t need to be in an institution, because he had a home. He had family. Maybe he would look for Edo’s uncles himself, through the office that helped people search for relatives. When they would find the uncles and know who they were, Edo would be happy to get all the details. And he would not need to come here himself again; they would make sure to get to Edo. Maybe he would come just to tell Edo that he was the one who had given over all of the information. But maybe not. Perhaps he wouldn’t want to meet him then either. To be continued...

Vote-by-Mail Sets Off a Partisan Divide THE PULSE: Michigan, Nevada and California recently
announced that all voters in their states would receive applications to request a vote-by-mail ballot. Numerous states currently allow mail-in voting, but many require that the voter provide a reason for not voting in person. The logic behind the relaxation of the vote-by-mail requirements is that it will help stop the spread of COVID-19 by alleviating crowds at polling places. It will also allow voters who are fearful of contracting COVID-19 to vote from the safety of their homes. However, President Trump is vehemently opposed to expanded vote-bymail procedures. He fears that voting by mail is subject to fraud and has threatened to cut federal funding to
94 / THE MONSEY VIEW / May 27, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
Michigan and Nevada over their plans to mail ballots to voters who request them. The California GOP has sued California Governor Gavin Newsom over his vote-bymail directive and is seeking to get a court to overturn it. Elections fall under the jurisdiction of each state, and the federal government has limited leverage on the matter. Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak angrily hit back over the threatened cut to funding and said, â€œFor the president to threaten federal funding in the midst of a pandemic over a state exercising its authority to run elections in a safe and legal manner is inappropriate and outrageous.â€? THE IMPACT: There have been some limited cases of voter fraud associated with mail-in ballots. The most notable example was a 2018 congressional election in North Carolinaâ€™s 9th district. A court overturned a Republican
congressional victory due to illegal ballot harvesting. However, extensive studies have shown that mail-in ballot fraud is not widespread and that it does not tend to favor one party over the other. Proponents of mail-in voting believe that they can overcome any shortcomings in the system. One of the main concerns is ballot harvesting. Political operatives are allowed to collect multiple ballots and return them to a polling station on behalf of voters. A simple remedy to this flaw can be to outlaw the ballot’s return to the polling station or post office mailbox by a person other than the voter himself. There are concerns regarding ballots that are returned late and do not get counted. Problems also arise when ballots are submitted unsigned or when signatures on the ballot do not match the signature on file with the board of elections. Disqualification of such ballots can lead to prolonged political wrangling and questionable election outcomes. The supporters of voting by mail argue that the benefits outweigh the risks and point out that Trump himself voted by mail in the recent Florida Republican primary.
Republicans Notch Two Congressional Election Victories THE PULSE: Republicans won two special elections
held for open congressional seats. Republican Tom Tiffany scored a comfortable victory in the reliably red 7th district of Wisconsin. The newsworthy event was that Republican Mike Garcia won a congressional seat in California’s 25th district that had previously been held by a Democrat. It is the first time in over 20 years that Republicans have flipped a congressional seat in California. THE IMPACT: Mike Garcia is a former Navy pilot who received strong support and backing from President Trump. Republicans are hailing his election victory as a sign of strength and are hoping that it portends to future congressional victories in November. Historically, special elections are a less-than-accurate indicator of future voting results, as turnout in these elections is usually significantly below average. The vote in California was also based almost entirely on mail-in ballots (see above). In any case, these victories are good news for Republicans and will serve to boost the morale of Republican candidates in tight races across the country.
Biden Lambasted for Remarks on Black Voters THE PULSE: During an interview with the popular “Breakfast Club” radio program, Joe Biden responded to a question from the host of the show by saying that “If
you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.” Biden received backlash for his comments, which were racially insensitive and appeared to take the black vote for granted. Biden apologized and said that his comments were “much too cavalier” and acknowledged that “the comments have come off like I was taking the African American vote for granted” but that “nothing could be further [from] the truth.” THE IMPACT: African American voters powered
Biden’s historic primary comeback against Bernie Sanders. Many of them view Biden as an ally who has historically supported the needs of the African American community. The fact that he served as the vice president to the first African American president is seen as a plus among black voters. It is essential that Biden retains the support of this constituency and not alienate them with comments that are perceived as demeaning and unappreciative. Biden’s quick apology will help to assuage his supporters’ concerns, but he will need to be more sensitive and aware going forward.
GOP Rep Calls on Trump to Stop Creating Paranoia THE PULSE: Donald Trump has lashed out at political
opponents and accused them of all types of unsubstantiated crimes. He insisted that former President Barack Obama and former VP Joe Biden are guilty of criminal acts. Last week Attorney General William Barr publicly stated that he does not expect “a criminal investigation of either man,” but that has not stopped Trump from accusing them of “the biggest political crime and scandal in the history of the USA.” Trump has also claimed that Obama administration officials are deserving of prison terms of “at least 50 years.” Trump has also lashed out at reporters such as CNN’s Jake Tapper and accused them of illegal activities. One of the most egregious attacks that Trump has leveled is against MSNBC host and former Republican Representative Joe Scarborough. Trump has insinuated that Scarborough is responsible for the death of an office intern who was found dead in Scarborough’s Florida office in 2001. The death of the intern has been investigated and determined to be accidental, but Trump has continued to propagate the theory that Scarborough committed murder. THE IMPACT: On Sunday, Representative Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) called on Trump to stop with his accusations. In response to the Scarborough accusation, he said it is a “completely unfounded conspiracy. Just stop. Stop spreading it, stop creating paranoia. It will destroy us.” Kinzinger is attempting to make a point. Democracy depends on voters having a precise grasp of reality, and distortions of truth will destroy the country’s foundation.

A minhag with a mesorah ...
THE NUMBER ONE STEP FOR A STRESS -FREE SIMCHAH Making a wedding is always an exciting and emotional time. The whole family, mechutanim, grandparents, children and not to mention the chassan and kallah, get pulled into the excitement as they count down to that special day, when they’ll ﬁnally be led under the chuppah. The to-do list is long and detailed. You need to clothe the entire family. Furnish the apartment. Buy the shtaﬁr, plan the logistics of the chasunah, organize the sheva berachas and... the list never really ﬁnishes. You try to think of every detail. You take note of every advice shared by your family and friends. You daven and hope that everything goes well and your simchah will be a ‘simchah with simchah’. You ﬂip through every sefer for segulos that ‘guarantee’ you more Siyata dishmaya. Is there something more you can do, you wonder?
The answer is yes. And fortunately, it takes only one phone call!
to do to make sure you can celebrate your simchah with peace of mind. So yes, just one phone call to Einey Yeshuah and, like the hundreds of mechutanim before you, the real stress and worry is over. One short phone call and you’re registered in the ‘’Sefer Hasimchah’’. That’s all it takes to ensure that Einey Yeshuos has you and your family in mind with the special segulos and practices, all based on solid tradition.
And, as you move forward, from the ﬁrst exhilarating moments of anticipation as you bring in Shabbos Aufruf, until that satisﬁed sigh of nachas and sheer gratitude at the last sheva berachos, you’ll have the calmness and serenity of knowing that you’ve done your part in bringing this extra protection and siyata dishmaya to your special occasion
Already as far back as in the times of the Tashba’’tz (around 600 years ago) we ﬁnd a minhag for mechutanim to practice certain segulos to ward oﬀ the Eyin Harah (Tashbatz, Katan, Ch 464). Still later, the Shevet Mussar cautions about protecting against Eyin Harah especially families of Chasan and Kallah! In fact, that’s one of the reasons why we break a glass under the chuppah - to protect against any Eyin Harah that may be present (Ohr Hachamah). We see that based on our mesorah, protecting against Eyin Harah is the correct and necessary hishtadlus for you

The soprano song of a single swallow tickled Chananel’s ear, gently pulling him back from soaring on High. As he opened his eyes, other birds joined the choir, greeting the dawn with praise for their Creator. Straightening up, Chananel noticed gentle rays streaming in through the open door. Avigael. Why had she left the house so early? Quietly washing, Chananel tiptoed past where Noam was sleeping, afraid to waken the slumbering babe. “I see that you have woken the sun this morning, rather than the sun waking you.” He spoke to Avigael’s back, her not having noticed his approach. She quickly stood and turned, a treasure cradled in her arms. “Chananel, look! I’ve attached dried pomegranates to our basket. Isn’t it beautiful?” Examining the tiny red ornaments, Chananel praised the work of her hands. The willow reed basket had kept Avigael busy over the course of many days as she’d dried and stripped the branches he’d 120 / THE MONSEY VIEW / May 27, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
harvested and lovingly weaved them together. It was a simple basket, full of heart. And now it was ready — and so was he. From the time he’d found the first budding olive, wrapped a thin reed around it to signify its sanctity as a first fruit, and whispered “harei elu bikkurim,” Chananel had been dreaming of this day. Today he would clip his ripened fruit and begin his journey toward the Beis Hamikdash.
The trip from Gush Chalav to Meron passed quickly, as Chananel allowed himself to relive the memories of the previous year. The sights, the sounds — the utter sanctity; mere words failed to capture the essence of the bringing of bikkurim. With mounting anticipation, Chananel eagerly looked forward to the moment he’d once again hand over the best of his land. Not that he had much. Being orphaned of both parents
from a young age had given him a difficult start in life. But in the blessed way of Am Yisroel, the community had stepped in and cared for him until maturity, when they’d married him to a yesomah of fine character. Wealthy neighbors who’d watched him grow up had gifted him a small plot of land with scarcely a minyan of olive trees. It wasn’t much, but it was enough — nay, it was more than enough! It was his. And for that he was thankful. With Avigael and Noam staying in her cousin’s home while he was away, Chananel was able to be fully in the moment, savoring each step he took in the colorful sandals he’d crafted especially for this journey. As he walked, he spoke to Hashem in his own words, thanking him for such a blessed life. Soon Meron was in sight, and clearly there was action in the center of town. Throngs of people from surrounding hamlets and Meron proper had gathered together, some with donkeys carrying bulging bags of goods and others with simple packs on their backs, like Chananel, who’d be making the trip by foot. Coming closer, the sounds of chatter drifted through the air as friends old and new greeted one another and prepared to travel together. The sweetness of the mitzvah permeated the streets, so tangible he could almost taste it on his
tongue. Nodding at his fellow travelers by way of greeting, Chananel spread out blankets and prepared to settle down for the night. A young boy stuck his head out of a nearby doorway and asked him his name, revealing his own for good measure. “We’d invite you to sleep in our home,” he said, the gap between his teeth playing up his boyish charm, “but Father says it isn’t allowed.” “Your father is a learned man,” Chananel said with a smile. “Those who bring bikkurim sleep only in the city streets for fear of becoming tamei should there be a mes found within a house.” Chananel tousled the lad’s hair. “But your desire to be machnas orach is surely appreciated both here and There,” he said, pointing toward the Heavens. The young boy grinned and scampered off, leaving Chananel to rest up for the days of walking ahead. When morning dawned, those who’d slumbered in the streets roused themselves with vigor, as the waking call of “Kumu v’naaleh Tzion el Hashem Elokeinu!” rang out. Soon they were on their way, a flute-player gaily leading the procession with heart-lifting, feet-lifting music. As one, the pilgrims sang in jubilation, “Samachti b’omrim li beis Hashem nelech!” Throughout the day they journeyed, Chananel conversing and singing with people he knew from back home and those he’d only just met. It was a conglomeration of Yidden; young and old, rich and poor, unlearned and wise. Together they created a beautiful tapestry of Hash-

em’s nation, a living work of singing, fragrant, colorful art. Even the ox that walked in front of the moving mass of people was pleasant to behold, its horns gilded in gold, an olive branch crown upon its head. For two-thirds of the day they traveled, stopping early to allow others who’d just learned of the passing caravan time to gather their bikkurim and join them. Despite the hours on his feet, Chananel remained energetic; he could easily walk through the night! But he didn’t begrudge the newcomers the wait, knowing that every person would add to the glory of the King by coming as one of a multitude. The rest of the day was spent in camaraderie, with food, learning and conversation shared amongst the crowd. “How long will it take us to arrive?” a first-year bearer of bikkurim asked that evening to a group of men who’d gathered in a circle. “Should be about five days, b’ezras Hashem,” an older, welltraveled man answered, “if we make haste... We’ll have to extend our route, bypassing the Kutim. They’re acting up again, harassing pilgrims. Best to avoid the Shomron and risk running into them.” Many of the men nodded knowingly as the speaker described the path they’d take to avoid the area around Har Gerizim where the trouble-making Kutim were settled. They’d all grown up hearing how the Kutim, pseudo-Jews, had tried to thwart the rebuilding of the Beis Hamikdash, claiming that Har Gerizim was the true Har HaBayis. Due to the Kutim’s meddlesome efforts, the construction of Beis Sheini had been delayed eighteen years. Even now they remained a thorn in the side of the Yidden. “We’ll have to follow the Yam Ginosar down, and then head through Yericho before we turn inward to Yerushalayim, even though it will add an additional two days to our journey.” As Chananel drifted off to sleep that night, the faces of Avigael and
Noam flitted through his mind. For them, every extra step was worth it. Better to be safe than to expose oneself to danger. * * * At the end of the final full day of travel, the very air resonated with an unseen energy. A thread of excitement weaved its way through the camp. Soon, soon they would be there. The olim had come so far, and now, just outside of Yerushalayim, they’d stopped to prepare their bikkurim. A runner had gone ahead to announce their arrival early the next morn to prepare the inhabitants of the Holy City to greet them with great fanfare. All around Chananel, the people he’d traveled with were pulling bags off of donkeys or slipping them from their own shoulders, lovingly emptying the contents for which they’d traveled so far. Figs, dates, pomegranates, grapes, sheaves of wheat and barley… Some had only one species, others had two or more. Those who hailed from the Galil, like Chananel, had sacks of olives, considered the most valuable of the sheva minim. The oil they produced fetched greater prices than wine, and for this reason, many of his neighbors were wealthy. Their baskets were quite unlike his simple reed one; theirs were overlain with silver and gold, some of their baskets large enough to hold vast quantities of bikkurim. Even though Chananel was bringing one-sixtieth of his crop, as per the sages’ ordinance, his bringings fit well enough into a mediumsized basket. For a while he fussed over the presentation, moving the justripe olives this way and that, until he was finally satisfied with the display. Contentedly, Chananel settled back to watch those who weren’t yet finished. Those who’d come with multiple minim were either dividing them into separate baskets or layering them, one species at a time, inside a single basket. The grains were on the bottom, the fruits on the top, and
between each species was a layer of leaves or grass. Those who had traveled from far away or had waited for their various crops to ripen in order to bring everything at once had dried figs and raisins instead of fresh figs and grapes. No matter what each basket carried or how it was presented, the basket owners all felt the same warm feelings of gratitude to Hakadosh Baruch Hu for blessing them with such bounty. On the morrow, they’d be able to express those feelings through the offering of their first fruits in the Beis Hamikdash. * * * Throngs of people gathered in the streets leading to Yerushalayim, the dwellers of the city eager to greet the bearers of bikkurim. Artisans and officials alike stood together in reverence for those coming to perform the great mitzvah of the bringing of first fruits. Seeing the heartwarming reception before him, Chananel’s spirits ran high. Though a simple man, a farmer of but a few trees, he felt that he was someone worthy of great respect by virtue of this mitzvah. One by one the olim poured into the city, and when all of the travelers had
124 / THE MONSEY VIEW / May 27, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
entered the gates of Yerushalayim, the flute-player began a new melody. As one, they opened their mouths to sing: “Omdos hayu ragleinu bisharayich Yerushalayim!” As they wound their way through the streets of Yerushalayim toward Har HaBayis, Chananel saw little children clapping their pudgy little hands in delight, their mothers peeking through the doorways at the festivities. All along the streets, workers and shopsmen stopped what they were doing and greeted them: “Acheinu, our brothers, you have come in peace!” When the group came near to Har HaBayis, they paused to finish their preparations. Though many pilgrims had brought everything they needed, others had last-minute purchases to make. Chananel was of the latter group; he’d had no desire to tend to pigeons along the trail! He inched his way along, sliding in and out of the crowd to exam-
ine the stalls that dotted the streets. Some vendors were selling animals for korbanos and others sold ornamental fruits to be used in decorating
All around Chananel, the people he’d traveled with were pulling bags off of donkeys or slipping them from their own shoulders, lovingly emptying the contents for which they’d traveled so far. Figs, dates, pomegranates, grapes, sheaves of wheat and barley… the bikkurim baskets. With great care, Chananel inspected grapes for freshness and perfection, and purchased a few bunches to place around his olives, which were now at peak ripeness, having reached full maturity during the course of the journey. He
then worked his way through the crowds to where pigeons, both the young and the mature, were being sold. He selected several and paid for them. Two of the birds he tethered to his baskets to be offered as olah offerings; the others he’d carry in his hand and gift to a Kohen. When fully prepared, Chananel removed his sandals, washed the dust from his feet, and waited near the entrance to Har HaBayis for others to join him. Nearby, the ox with gilded horns stood ready to be offered as a shlamim on behalf of the community of travelers. After a short while, everyone was ready to begin the ascent. One by one, each person hoisted his own basket upon his shoulder. Even the very wealthy who’d had servants and donkeys transport their supplies until this point were obligated to personally carry their fruits from the moment they stepped upon the mountain. As the sweet notes of the flute rang out, signaling the commencement of their aliyah, they surged forth, singing the verses from Tehillim: “Hallelukah hallelu Kel b’kadsho… Kol haneshamah tahallel Kah hallelukah!” Up, up, up they went, heading toward the Beis HaBechirah, the House of His Choosing. With each step, the basket balanced on Chananel’s shoulder felt lighter despite the physical exertion. It was as if his soul was carrying him, the lightness he felt inside overpowering the force of gravity. Stepping into the Azarah, the pilgrims were greeted with the heavenly song of the Levi’im: “Aromimcha Hashem ki dilisani…” Only the singing of Levi’im could be heard; from everyone else there was silence. The tremendous awe of the moment washed over the travelers. They’d come so far, and finally they were here, in Hashem’s own House. It was the most holy, beautiful place in Creation. Chananel quietly watched as the first bearer of bikkurim stepped forward, his basket perched upon
his shoulder. Memories of yesteryear played through Chananel’s mind, reminding him of the first time he’d brought bikkurim, only one year prior. Suddenly, the world swam before Chananel, everything rapidly shifting out of focus. It was only due to siyata d’Shmaya that he was able to prevent his basket from toppling. Vidui Bikkurim! How could he have forgotten?! Was it only a year ago that he’d suffered overwhelming disgrace? That his face had burned like the flames of the mizbe’ach, heated by the fire of shame? Last year, when he’d brought bikkurim for the first time, he’d been expected to read passages from the holy Torah. It was only through the redness of his face and the silence in place of his speech that the Kohen had surmised his secret: The young man before him had never learned to read. Tall and proud, young and strong… but an orphan, the son of returnees from Bavel who hadn’t known Lashon Kodesh. Was it his fault he’d never been lovingly taught the alef-beis on the knees of his father or crouched in front of a Torah scroll with a melamed? For what reason should he bear the indignity of being less than everyone once again? Chananel was overwhelmed with feelings of inferiority. He frantically imagined himself running out of the Azarah and down Har HaBayis, leaving his pain far behind. But wait. What was that? Slowly, he refocused, the images in front of his eyes taking shape. The pilgrims were going forward to wave their baskets in the prescribed manner, and instead of reading the passages that one must, they were repeating, word by word, after a designated reader. Each and every one of them. The man next to him leaned in and whispered, “They’ve changed the system this year. Too many people were ashamed of their inability to read that their em-

barrassment stopped them from bringing bikkurim. So the Chachamim appointed an official reader to ensure that no Jew suffers humiliation. Here in the Beis Hamikdash, we are all treated with dignity.” The cooling waves of relief instantly washed over him. I can do this! I can do this! Chananel silently cried, the gift of dignity having been restored to him. When it was his turn, Chananel stepped forward and made a confession — not that he was illiterate, but that he had “come to that Land that Hashem swore to our forefathers to give us.” He was helped, without shame, by the reader who had “helped” all the others before him. When he finished the vidui, he lowered the basket from his shoulders and held it by the rim. The Kohen stretched forth his hands and placed them beneath the basket, and together they waved it up and down and in all four directions. Upon completion, the official reader and Chananel read aloud the passages from the Torah recounting Lavan’s attempt at destroying Yaakov, the cruelty of the Mitzriyim, and the afflictions we suffered at their hands. But, oh! We cried out! And Hashem heard us, and took us out of Egypt, “to this land, a land flowing with milk and honey.”
“And now,” Chananel declared, his voice bold and unwavering, “I have brought the first fruit of the ground, which you, Hashem, have given me.”

“And now,” Chananel declared, his voice bold and unwavering, “I have brought the first fruit of the ground, which you, Hashem, have given me.” The Kohen then directed Chananel to place his basket at the southwest corner of the mizbe’ach, and prostrate himself. Falling forward, Chananel found himself caught in sobs the likes of which he’d never experienced. For in this journey, his understanding, like his olives, had matured. From the time he’d left the comfort of his little stone home in Gush Chalav, he’d undergone a reenactment of exile, wandering about with no roof over his head and no place to put down his packages.

Tomorrow he would return to Gush Chalav, but tonight he would sleep within the walls of the Holy City, as commanded. As he walked away, he fervently prayed that he would be able to fulfill the proclamation of the bas kol that rang out as he’d completed the bringing of the bikkurim: the promise that he would merit to bring them again the coming year.

Tehillim plays a huge role in our lives. Many pesukim in davening are selected from sefer Tehillim. Kapitlach are said daily as a zechus for a refuah sheleimah for a loved one. In fact, whoever wants a yeshuah in any area recites a few chapters of Tehillim. 1
What is Tehillim, and why is it so popular among Klal Yisroel? May one recite Tehillim before davening? May it be recited by heart, or at night? All these and other issues will be addressed in this article. 134 / THE MONSEY VIEW
Tehillim 3 There are 150 chapters in sefer Tehillim. There is a discussion as to how many chapters were written by Dovid Hamelech.4 Many of the chapters were composed while he was in danger — wandering in the deserts while escaping his enemies — and also during times of joy and light. In sefer Tehillim, Dovid joined the tribulations of his people with his own. When he petitioned for himself, he petitioned for the entire nation, for he identified well with their suffering and with their joy. Through these psalms, Dovid drew closer to Hashem. It has become customary for Yidden to grab a sefer Tehillim when they need to reach out to Hashem for salvation or for praise.5 Dovid Hamelech was born and was niftar on Shavuos;6 therefore, many say that this is an opportune time to recite Tehillim.7 Many have the custom to visit his grave as well.8
Benefits of Tehillim The Maharsha9 says that reciting Tehillim brings one to fear of Hashem. The Pele Yoetz10 says that saying Tehillim has many benefits. He concludes that “One who routinely says Tehillim is protected from all harm befalling his house, his family, etc., and that one who wishes to attach himself to Hashem and His praises should be connected to a sefer Tehillim.”11 Dovid Hamelech asked of Hashem that saying Tehillim should be considered like learning Negaim and Ohalos. Some explain the connection as follows: Tehillim is not necessarily meant to be said by everyone, since Dovid Hamelech wrote it at different times in his life, and the same episodes may not arise for every individual. Negaim and Ohalos are not applicable to everyone either, but we still learn them and get rewarded. Therefore,
Dovid Hamelech requested the saying of Tehillim should be rewarded as if we learned Negaim and Ohalos.12 Saying Tehillim protects you in this world and in the next.13 The Pele Yoetz writes, “We have a tradition that one who has a problem, or pain, or is traveling on the road, should read the entire Tehillim all day without stopping, with kavanah and humbleness; he will see wonders. This tradition has been tried and tested (and works).”14
First, since one is davening for a refuas hanefesh, it will bring about a refuah of the body.18 In addition, one
The Point of Saying Tehillim
is saying the Tehillim so it should be a zechus — and the zechus should help the sick person.19 According to some poskim, one should only spell out the name of the sick person with the 119th chapter of Tehillim if the patient is in grave danger.20 Some poskim are of the opinion that one should not say in the yehi ratzon after Tehillim, “in the merit of sefer Tehillim.”21 Others are not concerned about this since it can be considered a tefillah, and this is the accepted custom.22
Saying Tehillim (besides the benefits based on Kabbalah)15 brings one to d’veikus to Hashem, just as Dovid Hamelech was when he was compiling Tehillim. When one reaches this level, it is a zechus for himself or for the person for whom he is saying Tehillim. Therefore, instead of learning, we say Tehillim for a sick person since this brings closeness to Hashem. Based on this, one should understand the meaning of the words he is saying.16
Why Is It Permitted to Recite Tehillim? There is a halacha stating that words of the Torah may not be used to heal someone.17 Nevertheless, it is permitted to recite Tehillim with the intention of bringing about healing. Many poskim say that the purpose of reciting Tehillim is to improve spiritually, and based on that, there are two explanations.
Saying It Slowly One should recite Tehillim slowly and with the proper pronunciation. One should not fly through it quickly.23
When to Recite the Name of a Person When reciting Tehillim in public (like in shul) and mentioning the name of a person who is not well, the name of the person should be mentioned before the Tehillim is
THE MONSEY VIEW / 135
said.24 When davening for a sick person, one should mention the person’s name, and then the mother’s
name.25 For example, ploni ben plonis. Some explain that there is less kitrug on a woman since she is obligated in fewer mitzvos. Therefore, it is a zechus to mention the mother’s name.26
Reciting Tehillim Before Davening There is a discussion in the poskim if one may recite Tehillim before davening.27 The accepted custom is to permit it only with a minyan.28
Reciting Tehillim by Heart Tehillim is routinely recited by heart. This practice is questionable, as we will see. The written Torah (Torah Shebichsav) may not29 be recited by heart,30 even one word.31 One reason is that one might not pronounce the words correctly.32 Verses that are well known by everyone may
136 / THE MONSEY VIEW
be recited by heart,33 such as pesukei d’zimra,34 Birchas Kohanim,35 Krias Shema,36 Shiras Hayam37 and others.38 The opinion of many poskim is that the restriction only applies when being motzei someone else in his obligation,39 but saying a pasuk to praise Hashem or for tefillah is allowed.40 Others say that the whole concern applies only to pesukim from the Torah.41 Some are even more lenient and maintain that the whole concern is in regard to reciting it with the trup, but without the trup it is permitted.42 Some poskim hold that if an individual is fluent with a particular verse, then he may recite it by heart, even if most people are not fluent with that verse.43 Most poskim do not allow it unless it is fluent by all.44 Others say that if one does not say a complete pasuk by heart then it is permitted (such as those mentioned in the Gemara).45 Many have the custom of reciting pesukim by heart, such as vayehi binso’a ha’aron, kedusha, etc. Some explain that we can rely on the opinion that holds that the issur only applies if one is being motzei others.46 If a public speaker does not have a chumash readily available, he can recite a pasuk by heart.47
Teachers48 often ask students to memorize Shiras Hayam, Shiras Devorah or Tefillas Chana. This is permitted for a number of reasons.49 Some permit reciting Tehillim by heart, since it is considered a tefillah.50 Moreover, we can rely on those poskim who maintain that the whole concern is being motzei someone in his obligation.51 The Chayai Adam52 frowns upon this practice. Nonetheless, the custom is to recite those chapters that are fluent to all, such as Shir Hama’alos Mimama’akim, and Shir Hama’alos Esa Einay.
Reciting Tehillim Before Chazaras Hashatz Neither the tzibbur53 nor the shatz54 may talk while waiting for chazaras hashatz. Glancing into a sefer is permitted.55 Some say that one may catch up on certain parts of davening that he might have missed,56 or may even recite Tehillim.57
Learning Mikra — Reciting Tehillim at Night The Midrash says that Moshe Rabbeinu knew it was day when Hashem taught him mikra and that
When Dovid Hamelech petitioned for himself, he petitioned for the entire nation, for he identified well with their suffering and with their joy. it was night when Hashem taught him the Mishnah and Gemara.58 Based on this, some say that one should not read mikra at night.59 Kabbalah also frowns upon this.60

Some explain that learning mikra at night arouses the middah of din.61 Nonetheless, there is no actual issur.62 If one reads the pesukim with a targum, this inyan does not apply.63 One may say mikra on leil Shabbos, Motzei Shabbos,64 leil yom tov,65 leil chol hamoed, and leil Yom Kippur.66 The pesukim that are customarily recited at Krias Shema al Hamittah are permitted, since they refer to night.67 One who has a seder halimud every day in Tanach and did not finish learning before night may finish the seder at night.68 Some permit saying mikra during bein hashmashos.69 Many poskim say that Tehillim is not included in this inyan at all.70 Others only permit Tehillim after chatzos.71 Some say it is permitted to read a pasuk for rachamim (and not limud).72 The minhag is to recite pesukim of Tehillim on Yom Kippur night.73
Tehillim on Shabbos Since Dovid Hamelech was niftar on Shabbos, many have the minhag to recite Tehillim on Shabbos.74 Tehillim should not be said in public on Shabbos for a sick person who is not in danger.75 When reciting Tehillim for such a person, it should not be obvious that the Tehillim is being said for him.76
Reciting Tehillim at Different Times 77 It is stated that one should recite Tehillim during the days of Elul, selichos, and during the Yomim Noraim.78 In addition, one should recite Tehillim on Shabbos Shuvah.79
Saying Tehillim for 40 Days Straight There is a well-known segulah that one who says Tehillim for 40 days is saved from harmful events.80
Splitting the Recital of Tehillim It is customary to split the recital of Tehillim among many people in order to finish it every day.81 If one is saying a chapter of Tehillim b’tzibbur, each pasuk should be said separately.82

I lock my bedroom door and lean against it, panting, relieved that I’d avoided a direct hit. He is on the other side of the door, wielding a broomstick, poised to attack. I am many times his age, many times his weight, and almost double his height, but my hands are trembling from helplessness and frustration — and my heart is pounding with fear. Fear. I am afraid of my son. I sit down and try to shut out the banging as wooden stick hits door. “Open the door! I’m gonna unlock it!” Just breathe, I tell myself, as something hard (PlayMags?) hits next, and then pieces continue to beat a relentless staccato on the door. The light on the cordless goes on, and I check it disinterestedly. I’m in no state to talk to anyone. Oh, but it’s Goldy. Good ol’ Goldy. The one person who can listen without judging. She couldn’t have chosen a better moment to call. I don’t know why she called or what she wants; I don’t even give her a chance. “I can’t take it!” My despair spills into the phone. “I don’t know what to do! I just locked myself into my bedroom. Ruvi was holding a broomstick, ready to hit me. I mean, he hit, but he missed.” Goldy doesn’t say anything yet. Good. “What else am I sup-
posed to do? Tell me what! I had him evaluated. I took him for therapy. I took parenting classes. Read books. I tried structuring the afternoons. I tried positive reinforcement. I brought him to an audiologist. To a neurologist. I tried a host of vitamins. We’ve paid thousands of dollars and spent hundreds of hours. And when he gets into this mode, he’s simply out of control. I don’t know what to think anymore!” I hear Shuey protesting. I tense up, listening out for trouble, but all seems okay outside my fortress. “I’m scared for myself — but even more for the other kids. You have no idea what he did to the baby this afternoon. And Ruchy’s homework is shredded on the kitchen floor. And Shuey’s face has so many scratches, he said his rebbi keeps asking how he got hurt.” I am crying. “I can’t believe I can’t handle my own son. That I need to protect my kids from their brother. When something sets him off, all I can do is bite my lips and tell Hashem, ‘Please. Please don’t let his siblings get harmed. Please make him grow up healthy. Please help me deal with him. Please give me koach so I shouldn’t explode...’ Because everything I try backfires. It’s come to a point where the best option is just not to do anything, so that I won’t do anything damaging when pushed to my limits like that.” I pace the floor miserably. What’s Goldy to say? I’m just so thankful she’s not sharing with me all the unsolicited gems I get from all over. Just be more firm. Give him two good petch. Did you try Rebbetzin X’s course? Did you try this therapeutic method? That one? “You are doing so much hishtadlus,” comes Goldy’s calm reply. “You’re doing everything you can... and more. Just keep davening, because that’s all you can do. “You know,” Goldy continues. “I recently heard — I wish I’d remember who this was — about an exceptional person and talmid chacham whose mother was asked to share her chinuch secret. She said that she can take no credit. When her son was a child, he was impossible. Unmanageable. He’d get into trouble at school. Do dangerous things. Fight. And she was at a loss. There was nothing she could do to tame him or make him behave. “She shared that every time her son would be in trouble or do something terrible, she took out a sefer Tehillim and said a kapitel, asking Hashem for help in raising
THE MONSEY VIEW / 145
her complex child.” I listen. “Wow,” I say, and let the idea flow through me. I unlock my bedroom door and head downstairs to the kitchen to set the supper table. I have a plan. It takes less than fifteen minutes to put it to test. “Hey!” Ruchy yells. “Ruvi put his licked pasta in my plate. I’m not eating supper! Ewwy!” Of course it was Ruchy’s plate — with her specialty gluten-free pasta. A confetti shower of chicken nuggets accentuates the announcement, courtesy of Ruvi. He then takes the ketchup bottle and squirts a helping onto Aidy’s high chair tray, making sure it drips onto her sleeves as well and leaves a trail on the floor. He’s holding the bottle of juice, and I know just where that’s going to land... My emotions contort in dizzying overwhelm. I open my mouth to protest. To protect. To defend. To yell. To make every parenting mistake in the book. And instead, I head to the seforim closet to get my Tehillim. “Ashrei ha’ish,” I whisper in the relative quiet of the living room, swallowing a sob. I say pasuk by pasuk listlessly, still numb around the edges. I turn to kapitel beis. “Lamah ragshi goyim…” My pace is slower now, the timeless words soothing me. “She’al mimeni v’etnah… Just request of Me and I will give…” The tears start to come. I ask — a wordless, senseless, pained request, but Hashem knows. Before I am even done, I already have company on the couch. “Ma,” Ruvi’s anxiety flares up as he takes in my tears. “What are you doing?” The others stand at the periphery of the room. I hug him close, if a little stiffly. I draw his siblings near. “I am davening,” I say. “I am asking Hashem that He should make my kinderlach grow up to be good. To do mitzvos. Not to fight. I’m davening for all of you.” In varying degrees of maturity, I see them taking it in. And so, with my sefer Tehillim in a handy spot — and many more difficult moments ahead — I know that there’s something I can do. I will sometimes fail. I will sometimes forget. I will sometimes lose it... I will also lose track and keep repeating the same kapitlach to make sure I don’t miss any. But over the next few months, I will always come back to draw strength and clarity from the hallowed words of Dovid Hamelech. I will finish the sefer, and I will start it again. I will eventually regroup to try new hishtadlus, learn new skills, but foremost, I will use this priceless tool I have, a therapeutic method that always helps.

URGENT LETTER On Tuesday, June 9th their will be a very important election in the East Ramapo Central School District. The School District is mailing over 60,000 voters a ballot as the voting will only be done by mail due to the current Pandemic.
VOTE NO ON PROPOSITION 1
INCREASE ON OUR PROPERTY TAX Very many people have recently lost their jobs and have not had any work as a result of Covid-19. The public schools are now closed for a few months and might not have regular session in September. We expected a cut in their total budget however instead the School District decided to increase the nearly quarter of a billion dollar budget. We have to send a clear message, our community can not and will not absorb any increase in taxes. For the school board please vote for the following candidates who will be working for all the students in the District:
JO-ANN HENDERSON R MARK W BERKOWITZ O F E T O V JOEL FREILICH HARRY GROSSMAN Even though the Community has successfully elected fair candidates to the board for many years, and they achieved much for all the students in the district, this year it's a difficult situation as the voting is by mail only and there is a strong possibility we may lose. One cannot bring people to vote from the shuls, no transportation, 61,000 ballots being mailed so we have no idea how many votes will be mailed back. As soon as one receives the ballot in the mail please fill it out and mail it immediately. There is no need to put a stamp on the envelope. If God forbid we lose this election the chinuch of our children may be in jeopardy. The ballot by mail is our only chance to vote. With the help of Hashem may we all have health, parnasaah and nachas from our children.

Basketry is the art of weaving pliable materials into functional objects, such as mats or containers.
Baskets of the Past Basket weaving is a craft that goes back as far as history can remember. Back in the day when there were no plastic or cardboard containers and few other options existed for storing items, baskets were an indispensable choice.
Materials Baskets can be woven from various materials. The most common ones are wood splints, cane, metal wire and horsehair. Creative basket weavers can intertwine many other kinds of materials to form baskets. For example, nature lovers will challenge you to take a walk in the woods and collect loose stems or branches and demonstrate how nearly anything can be twisted into a basket. Others have used recycled plastic bags, dyed into various colors, to create plastic baskets.
Serving multiple purposes, baskets were used to hold clothing and food, and even carry water. To historians and ethnologists (those who study the characteristics of people and cultures), baskets tell a story. By studying a basket, they can determine a lot about the socioeconomic heritage of a place. To that end, fragments of baskets were discovered in ancient Egyptian pyramids. In other locations, parts of woven basket liners were found in old pottery shards. These finds proved to be very revealing.
Functions of Baskets Baskets were traditionally used, first and foremost, for storage and transport. Additionally, baskets were also used while harvesting, cooking, and processing seeds and grains. They were also used as laundry receptacles and as nets to catch fish. In the times of the Beis Hamikdash, Yidden decorated beautiful baskets and placed their first fruits inside to be brought to Yerushalayim. In 2020, baskets are commonly used for plants, storage and traditional picnics. And letâ€™s not forget the classic mishloach manos baskets!

Weaving With Kids? Weaving is an exciting activity that kids can enjoy. Though you can experiment with various supplies, the simplest is probably to weave a paper basket. In a few short steps, your child can fashion a basket of his own! • First, cut strips of paper of the same width and length. • Using four horizontal strips and four vertical strips, weave the base of the basket, leaving loose ends on all four sides. • Fold up the loose ends and weave two strips around the now-standing sides to complete the basket.
Unique Baskets It took 56 women 40 days to weave the world’s largest recorded basket. Made of wicker and bamboo, it served as a fundraiser for an organization in Saudi Arabia. At 72 feet by 48 feet, and some 40 feet tall, the basket weighs 13.4 tons! Over in Ghent, Belgium, Jos de Troyer twisted a basket measuring 34.5 feet in diameter and weighing 99,000 pounds. In April 2000, he hung it over the town square in Ghent’s historic center, where it is still hanging now, twenty years later! In the United Arab Emirates, a landscaping company was tempted to create the largest display of hanging baskets. They succeeded at breaking the world record by suspending 2,968 baskets blooming with plants and floral arrangements.
The Longaberger Basket Building Imagine making millions from crafting wooden baskets! Dave Longaberger founded his basket-building company in a small workshop in Ohio in 1973. By 2000, the company was worth $1 billion and employed more than 8,000 workers. In 1998, the company moved into its iconic seven-story-high building, shaped like a Longaberger basket! A trademark “Longaberger” is known to be of superior quality. As popular collectors’ items, their handcrafted pieces have sold for as much as $1,700. How do you know if your solid maplewood basket is a bona fide Longaberger? Every Longaberger fashioned since 1982 has the date, weaver’s initials and the company logo stamped on its underside. Longaberger went out of business in 2018.

From Pyramid Plumbing Supply & Showroom
With construction, renovations, and remodeling halted, the plumbing industry, took a direct hit. Many of our hardworking brothers in the plumbing ﬁeld suﬀered a ﬁnancial blow, leaving their families without their sole source of income. Our local workforce is big and the demand is smaller than ever. As one of the leading wholesale and retail plumbing supply distributors in Rockland County, I can truly attest that the professionalism, dedication, and quality of our heimishe plumbers and contractors will make supporting them a win-win situation.

להגדיל תורה ולהאדירה ביתר שאת ועוז ברב אונים ידיהם רב להם להתברך בזכות הבל פיהם של תשב"ר הנעימים יעשו פרי לטובה בזכות "תפארת בנים" יראים ושלמים במהרה נזכה לעלות עיר קדשינו בשיר ורננים

From Metrex Realty
The real estate industry was aﬀected by the Covid shutdown like the rest of the industries. We had to stop showing houses and meeting clients in person. B"H we were able to switch over to virtual showings and somewhat continue doing business. At the same time we need to remember the rest of the stores and local businesses who were forced to close in their prime season. It's in our hands to help them get back on their feet BS"D.

Now that construction has been deemed 'essential' it is more important than ever to keep our brothers in mind. By hiring heimishe subs, who in turn will go out of their way to employ heimishe workers, you will create a ripple eﬀect of providing parnassah ב ד ר ך כ ב ו דto many of your brothers! Framers, trimmers, electricians, plumbers, painters, ﬂooring companies and low voltage, to name just a few, are counting on you to support them in their time of need.
