RE: EMOTIONALLY HEALTHY AT ANY WEIGHT
ATTRIBUTION I just wanted to point out that the quote featured on your shopping survey: “I passed a store which advertised that all their merchandise was 50% off. So I walked right past it and saved the other 50%, too!” is culled from Rabbi Avigdor Miller’s wisdom. Thank you, G. E.

Dear Esty, Thank you for taking the time to clarify what you meant. I really liked how you described how self-esteem is affected by the way we either enhance or degrade our value system through actions. Perhaps I am the odd one out at the end of the day… Although I definitely feel better, my insides cleaner, and have an extra bounce in my step at a healthier weight- I refuse to let myself feel guilty if I choose to eat food- whatever type it may be- when hungry.

by to this day: “Never feel guilty or embarrassed unless you have done an aveira.” I don’t consider that extra piece of cake an aveira, especially if it strengthens me to take care of my family. Yes, I would physically feel better lighter and thinner- but this is what works at this moment in time for my family. So cake never even makes it onto my value system, thus not usually affecting my selfesteem in a large way. In general, I feel our society is too laden with guilt- and that is so crippling to a person’s self worth! By the way, as I used to be a raw food vegan and lived on fresh juices, raw fruits and vegetablesI can testify to the validity of the juice diet you mentioned previously. I was on springs! The natural enzymes from the veggies kept me going, and I definitely miss that extra dose of vitality, although I’ll be the first to admit that devoting my life to juicing is absolutely impossible at this point in time… Unless of course, someone were to do it for me… Is there anyone that is trained in creating juices and delivers them before the nutrients die out?

How disappointed we were to see that most of the words in the winner’s list were not found on the
board! Please carefully review the list and choose the real winner. Thank you, A Boggle player EDITOR’S REPLY: We are sincerely sorry for the disappointment that Monsey View Boggle fans experienced upon seeing a list that did not acknowledge their efforts of fair play.

RE: SUPERVISOR’S MEZUZAH I’m writing regarding the letter from a sofer concerned about the kashrus of the mezuzah on the office door of Supervisor St. Lawrence. A mezuzah in a public place doesn’t have to be checked so often (less than once in fifteen years), which leaves no room for concerns about the Kashrus of a 15-year-old mezuzah. The only thing is that this mezuzah is perhaps on a private office, where if he would have been Jewish he would be obligated to check it more frequently, but that is not the case… A reader I read your interesting article on Christopher St. Lawrence. There was only thing that was bothering me. I’m not sure why it’s a chashivos that he has a mezuzah on his door. The halacha mifurish is that a goy is not allowed to have a mezuzah on his door, because you don’t know what he will do with a mezuzah. Halachically, he would have to take the mezuzah off his door.

RE: THE CHANGING FACE OF MONSEY (ISSUE #24) Dear Resident Who LOVES Monsey, I was not born in Monsey, I did not grow up in Monsey, I did not get married in Monsey, but I DID move to Monsey from a different state eleven years ago. Guess what! I may not be an original Monsey resident, but I also love Monsey for the same reasons you do. I chose to move to Monsey without having family or friends living here. (I still don’t have biological family living here, but several original Monsey families have adopted my family so maybe I could be considered an original Monsey resident by default!) I also would love if Monsey would have stayed the same Monsey that I moved to. However, I am tired of everyone putting the blame on the newcomers. I think the blame has to be shifted a little. It isn’t the people from the city who are ruining Monsey. It is our builders and rich people in real estate who surprise... surprise… have probably been living in Monsey for as long as
you have. (Yes, I can think of a few names as I type this.) Why our distinguished politicians are allowing the growth to go upwards and not outwards is another question to ask. If you need to blame someone, turn to these groups who care more about their money and power than what is good for the community. Growth is not a bad thing when done responsibly. B.L.T.
We, being the children of Avraham Avinu, have the middah of chesed and hachnosas orchim ingrained in our beings. What makes you the “original” resident of Monsey? Your parents also came here.

BY ESTY WEISS
What’s the Most Effective Way to Burn Fat with Exercise?
ADDING A SPRINT TO YOUR DAY
When I mention exercise to my clients, or to people in general, what usually comes to their mind is spending two hours at a gym, an hour-long walk, or a 45-minute aerobics class. This usually comes along with a frown on their face clearly stating: I don’t have the time, and I don’t enjoy it. So why bother?
As usual, any type of consistent movement is better than not doing it at all. Swimming, walking, dancing, running, and using exercise equipment are all great ways to burn calories. What I want to suggest to you is how you can add a sprint to any type of workout to increase your fatburning capabilities. Following are some examples of how to do it.
If this sounds familiar to you, I have some good news. The slogan I like to use is “shorter and smarter.” Allow me to explain.
SHORT VERSUS LONG PERIODS OF EXERCISING: This may come as a surprise to you, but it’s a good one! If time and enjoyment is indeed an issue for you, then you’re going to like this: I’m not sure where the notion of “spending hours” at the gym is coming from, especially because it’s even more effective to exercise 4-5 times a week for only 25 minutes, than doing an hour’s worth of exercise three times a week! It’s crucial to know the reason why shorter workouts have been shown to be much more effective for weight loss. Every minute you spend exercising, you obviously want to get the most out of it. How can that be accomplished? When you exercise for a shorter time and incorporate ‘sprinting’ wherever you can, you will not only burn calories while working out, but it will have an after-burn effect as well. Which means that you’re going to continuing burning calories for many hours after the exercise session. In addition, your overall metabolism will be raised. Sounds good for 25 minutes,

If you are new to sprinting, build yourself slowly up to 25 minutes. It might take you a few weeks to get there, but it will be worth your while. For now, even if you can only do 8- to 10-minute rotations, and you feel wiped out, that’s great! Cool down, then stop and continue with this sprinting exercise next time, adding one minute to each session.
EXERCISING IN THE MORNING/NOON VERSUS AT NIGHT: A very common question I often get is: when is the best time of the day to work-out?
Well, any time is definitely better than never!

noon is best, since you still have a long day ahead of you to reap the benefits of the afterburn effect. Exercising at night will only burn off the calories for the workout itself, because you’ll be going to sleep shortly thereafter.
WHAT ABOUT WEIGHT TRAINING? This is in fact a critical part in exercising, which shouldn’t be taken for granted. Weight training is extremely important for inch-loss; and while you’re shedding all that fat, it helps to keep your muscles in shape. However, lifting weights is something that you need guidance with. If you’re not lifting correctly, you might really be wasting your time. So either join a class, get a trainer, or have someone experienced show you how to do it. If you decide to sprint for 25 minutes four times a week, you can weight train for 25 minutes the other two days. You can balance it out however it works best for you. As every instructor, book, and gym coach would advise, you need to speak with your doctor before embarking on any exercise journey.

Terror in Paris BY ROCHEL LEBOVITS
With shock and horror the world watched as Paris, France was attacked yet again by Islamic State Terrorists, this time perpetrating the worst attack on Parisian soil since WWII. The attack took place Friday night, November 13th. A total of eight terrorists were involved, shooting at civilians with machine guns and detonating suicide vests at locations throughout Paris over a period of 100 minutes. The final outcome was at least 129 civilians murdered with 100s more injured, scores critically. There were many tourists among the victims including US Citizens. French President Hollande issued a strong statement vowing to crack down on terror and declaring a state of emergency. Countries across the world quickly joined in condemnation of the attacks offering help and condolences to the

people of France. The following night, famous sights around the world were colored in blue, white and red, the colors of the French flag, in solidarity with the people of France. On Sunday, the French Air Force in an apparent response to the attack, bombed some 20 locations in Raqqa, Syria, an ISIS stronghold, reported to be terrorist recruitment and training sites.

TIMELINE At least 129 people are dead, and another 352 injured, after three teams of jihadis struck the Stade de France football stadium, a handful of bars and cafes, and then finally the Bataclan concert hall. FIRST TWO ATTACKS: STADE DE FRANCE
1-2 The attacks began at 8:17pm GMT at the Stade de France, a sports stadium, where a game was taking place.
THIRD ATTACK: LE PETIT CAMBODGE AND LE CARILLON BAR
The first explosion, a suicide bombing, was at an entrance to the stadium. A suicide bomber approached the gate with a match ticket when he was frisked by a security guard who turned him away.
The game was being watched by 80,000 spectators among them was President Francois Hollande who had to be evacuated from the stadium.
He backed away from the gate and detonated his vest at about 8:20pm GMT near Gate D of the stadium, killing one other person. A passport with the name Ahmed Almuhamed, 25, from Syria, was allegedly found nearby.
FIFTH ATTACK: CAFÉ ‘COMPTOIR VOLTAIRE’
FOURTH ATTACK: LA CASA NOSTRA PIZZERIA AND LA BELLE EQUIPE BAR
4 At 8:25pm GMT a separate team of gunmen arrived in a car and attacked diners at t Le Petit Cambodge and Le Carillon bar in the Canal Saint-Martin area of eastern Paris, killing 15.
A second suicide bomber, Bilal Hadfi, 20, blew himself up near Gate H several minutes later. No one else was reported killed. Hadfi is said to have fought with ISIS in Syria.
5 From there, the militants drove around a mile south-east – apparently past the area of the Bataclan concert venue – to launch another attack, this time on La Belle Equipe bar in Rue de Charonne. At least 19 people died after the terrace was sprayed with bullets at 8:38pm GMT. The attackers then drove off.
The same unit then drove about 500 yards to La Casa Nostra pizzeria and opened fire on diners on the terrace of the restaurant, killing at least five people.
SIXTH ATTACK: BATACLAN MUSIC HALL
Five minutes later, Ibrahim Abdeslam, 31, set off a suicide vest outside the outside cafe 'Comptoir Voltaire' on the Boulevard Voltaire and close to the Bataclan theatre. He hired a car used in the attack.
SEVENTH ATTACK: NEAR STADE DE FRANCE
7 At 8:49pm GMT, the third group (believed to be three men and a woman) armed with AK-47s stormed the Bataclan music hall and began shooting members of the crowd. Survivors claim three blew themselves up and a fourth person was shot dead by police before they could detonate their bomb.
At around 8:50pm GMT a third blast took place near the Stade de France, this time by a McDonald’s restaurant on the fringes of the stadium. The boom caused terror among spectators who had already been attempting to flee the stadium following the first two explosions. The attacker who detonated his suicide vest was identified as a 20-year-old French man living in Belgium.
AFTERMATH The following morning, ISIS claimed responsibility for the attacks across Paris, saying 'eight brothers wearing explosive belts and carrying assault rifles' conducted a 'blessed attack on... Crusader France.' That afternoon, three people traveling in a grey VW Polo were arrested at the French/Belgian border when police traced the car after it was sighted outside the Bataclan theatre at the time of the attacks. - One of the Bataclan suspects was found carrying a Syrian passport under the name Ahmed Almuhamed who traveled to France as a migrant through Greece on
October 3. Ferry tickets reveal he traveled with another man named Mohammed Almuhamed. - Omar Ismaël Mostefai, 29, from Courcouronnes, Paris was also named as a Bataclan suicide bomber. The petty criminal and father of one was known to police as a radical and had traveled to Algeria and Syria. He was identified by the fingerprint on a severed digit found after he detonated his suicide belt. - Mostefai's father, a brother and other family members have been held and are being questioned. - The car used by the terrorists who murdered diners outside the Casa Nostra pizza restaurant and
the La Belle Équipe cafe was found abandoned 20 minutes away in Montreuil with a cache of weapons inside. - Seven people were detained in Belgium linked to the atrocities - three at the border and four in Brussels. Five are from the Molenbeek area of Brussels known as a 'den of terrorists'. - French media reports suggest three of the men involved were brothers, but police have not confirmed the reports. - French police are still hunting for two gunmen on the run and an ISIS bombmaker likely to have made the suicide vests T H E M ON S E Y V I E W /
Stone TWENTY FOUR Chaya’s Story Do you believe in miracles? I asked myself after the moment died down, left as I was with the weight of unsaid words sitting deep in my gut. Malka’la showed me the linens. I understood from her words that not only linens, but dresses, specifically her wedding dress — the one she would wear once, on the day only she, and her future, and her new husband exist — should be beautiful. Not just because she needs a dress. Not because of my obligation as a mother, to send a daughter to her own wedding dressed as a bride. Not that. She wants, no, needs — if she is to heal from constant want —to start her life off like the queen that she is. Seventeen years ago she nestled in both of my arms, and I looked at her face. I saw neshamah there. I saw a bag of bones and flesh, intricately formed and woven with blood vessels, deep lines,

Malka’la’s chest rose and fell, her nostrils like the wings of a nestling butterfly. I looked at her eyelids, her black lashes brushing the crest of her cheeks.

It makes room for unexpected wisdom.” I felt calmer. I breathed deeper, and my chest shuddered as I took in the air, took it down, knew that it is there, always. I have never passed out from hunger. Never have my children gone barefoot, although holes in their soles have posed a problem on a rainy winter day.

Miracles do happen. It is the magic that takes a mother with frayed and angry nerves and turns her into a completely different human being. It takes an experience and changes it. Just by remembering.
How many times can a vow be broken before it is a vow no more? Our Creator has always been here. He is here, right now, with me. He knows how this will turn out, what dress Malka will adorn herself in, where the money will come from as it passes through our hands. I have to be still, listen, to be. That’s my job. Because the rest will happen, as everything does. Snow falls, melts, washes away. Children are born, grow up, marry. I am fortunate to be part of this process. As a spectator, a beneficiary. I felt good again. I decided to write a note to Malka’la. To tuck it under her pillow. If it was so hard for me to say it in person, she deserved to hear it now.

Unaccepting of what is. Chuna, in his bed in the hospital, is covered in white and blue sheets. On its pristine bleached weave, every dust thread shows. Duvid’s shoulders and coattails are brown with dust. They are the dust of action. The imprints of courage, of doing what needs to be done.
“I have one option. My boss will give us a dirah in Mattersdorf. Malka’la will work to pay it back. The store, the fabrics, will be hers. To earn. To pay him back.” I looked at Duvid. Part of me listened as he outlined the plan. Part of me just watched his movements, how his shoulders curled in on him, how he wanted to give his daughter much, much more. “Duvid,” I said. His head jerked up, and for the first time in this conversation, he looked at me. “Thank you for being the catalyst for such a

miracle. Malka’la will have where to live.”
“Duvid, what is it?” I asked. “You look exhausted.”
“It’s saddling our young child with more than she can carry.”
“I am,” he said. “I worked hard.”
“I, too, want to give my daughter more than I have to give away. The bitterness makes me pull back and give even less.”
Can I accept comment?
He said it without a trace of resentment. Maybe even pride. I wanted to talk to him about Malka’la. But I was afraid to. What if his reaction was the same as mine? I wanted someone to help me up and out, and therefore I’d have no tolerance for someone in the exact place as me. Could I accept where I am? “Malka’la’s chasunah almost here,” Duvid said.
I grew very still, guarding myself against more chaos. “Yes,” I said.

I looked down at the note I had started. You are a queen at your wedding; let’s make it beautiful. I drew a sketchy picture of a bride, adorned in a long and flowing dress. On the bodice I added an arrangement of flowers, lace, and beads. I set a shimmering crown on her head with a few heavy strokes. I went to the sleeping quarters and tiptoed to her pillow. She was awake. She looked like she’d been crying. “Malka’la,” I said. “You can start sewing tomorrow. Sew the linen. Sew yourself beautiful things. Your wedding is coming.” “I know,” she said, her voice scratchy. “I need help. And Chuna needs help. He needs it more than I do. Maybe the wedding should wait.” To be continued…
He was listening. “I trust that she will be supported by the same Provider that has been here for us. She has where to live. What a stone off my shoulders. Now we can start preparing for the chasunah.” Excitement filled me. Miracles do happen. You can mistake them for other things, happenstance perhaps, but not if your heart is cracked open.

SOY SAUCE RICE
If you don’t have an oven-proof pot, just make sure your pot handles are covered well with silver foil before placing in oven. Remember that the pot handles will be boiling hot when you remove the pot, so be careful!
This tasty rice goes especially well with Chinese dishes. I don’t add salt to it, since soy sauce is pretty salty, but feel free to adjust according to your personal taste.
2 tablespoons oil 1 onion, diced 2 cups rice Salt and pepper 2 teaspoons consommé soup mix 1 tablespoon parsley flakes 1 bay leaf ½ teaspoon thyme 3 cups water Preheat the oven to 400. In a medium ovenproof pot, sauté onion in oil until just golden. Add the rice and brown for an additional 5 minutes. Add salt, pepper, consommé, parsley, bay leaf, thyme and water. Bring to a boil and cover pot. Place in oven for 17 minutes. Let rest 10 minutes before uncovering and removing bay leaf. Mix well before serving.
2 tablespoons oil 1 small onion, diced 1 cup rice 2 tablespoons soy sauce 2 cups water Sauté onion in oil until wilted. Add rice. Sauté rice until very toasted. Rice should be light brown; it can take up to 5-10 minutes. Add the soy sauce and stir to combine. Add the water and bring to a boil. Lower the flame and continue to simmer, covered, until the water is absorbed (about 10 minutes). Let sit for a few minutes before serving.

When rice is halfway cooked, add green beans to the pot - along with some additional water and seasoning, and cook until the green beans are soft. For a full onepot supper, add in cubed chicken nuggets.
FRIED RICE This rice takes a little bit longer than the other two to prepare, so it’s not for a rushed nightly supper, but it’s worth the effort when you have a little extra time to play around in the kitchen. 1 cup rice 2 cups water 2 tablespoons oil, divided 1 small onion, diced 2 eggs 1 cup frozen peas and carrots 1 tablespoon soy sauce 1 tablespoon onion soup mix In a medium saucepan bring the water to a boil.

rice and lower the flame. Simmer covered, until all the water is absorbed, about 10 minutes. Let rice cool in refrigerator for a few hours or overnight. In large frying pan, heat 1 tablespoon oil. Beat the two eggs and add to frying pan. Let sit until eggs are set. Remove from pan and cut
into small pieces. In the same pan, add 1 tablespoon oil. Add onion and sauté until wilted. Add cooled rice and continue sautéing. Add soy sauce and onion soup mix. Mix well. Add peas and carrots and eggs. Fluff and serve. Enjoy!

INFORMATIONAL By Ruchy Reese
CREATIVE STYLES The balaclava, also known as the modern-day ski mask, is the warmest option on the market. Every part of the face is covered, save for the lips, nostrils, and eyes. Eagle feathers feature prominently in Native American ceremonial wear, while porcupine fur was usually worn on the battlefield. Perukes, also known as wigs- were high-style in the 18Th century. Made out of horse, goat, or human hair, they were frequently powdered with orange or lavender scented powder that hopefully camouflaged any unpleasant odors coming from the wearer. (Keep in mind bathing was a once-a-year ritual for most people of that era!) Looking to decorate your hat with your own creative style? Keep in mind that as per world hat etiquette, women should only place decorations on the right side of her head covering.

HEADCOVERING IN HALACHA It is forbidden for a man to walk fourcubits with his head uncovered. When donning a tallis, one is required to cover his head completely, letting the tallis hang over until it reaches below the mouth, with the fringes wrapped around the neck, for the time it takes one to walk four cubits. Many men have the custom to cover their heads with two head coverings, for many reasons. One of them being that there is a shita that the full head must be covered- which modern day yarmulke design fails to do.
The trees are almost barren now, and the crisp fall air holds within it the promise of winter. It won’t be long until we look outside and see the world covered with a pristine blanket of white snow. Cheeks and noses will be cherry-red with the frosty breeze, but with cozy headgear, the battle against the cold will be halfway over! No matter what your style, whether it’s a fuzzy winter-cap, kutchma, or big, furry earmuffs - we bet that you’ll have something on your head. Let’s keep warm and toasty and explore the world of hats and headgear!
Make sure you listen to your mother on those cold winter days and put your hat on before heading outdoors! Twenty percent of body heat is lost through the head, especially through the forehead which lacks insulation.
Ever counted the pleats in a Chef’s hat? I’ll save you the trouble! Each hat is made with exactly 100 pleats, to represent the 100 ways an expert Chef can prepare an egg. Makpid on always wearing a hat and planning a trip to London? Keep your eye out for black taxis! They are specially designed with high ceilings so that you don’t have take off your hat when sitting inside. When visiting a construction zone you’ll most likely be handed an orange or pink hard hat reserved for visitors. Laborers usually don yellow hard hats, while supervisors usually are crowned with white. Interestingly enough, there is a law that forbids dancing while wearing a hat in Fargo, North Dakota. Doing so may result in a jail sentence! Ever heard the phrase “Mad Hatter”? Once upon a time, felt hats were made using mercury in the process. Over time, hat makers that had been exposed to the chemical developed violent twitching and derangement, thus earning them the sad nickname of “Mad Hatter.” Nowadays, hat making doesn’t involve mercury and is much safer.
“Big Wig”: a term used to denote a snobby person. Historically, only the most well-to-do could afford the biggest, fluffiest, hardest-to-care-for wigs. Snoopy Cap: The inner headgear worn by astronauts. Over at NASA they lost their creativity when it came to the outer piece however, boringly calling it “helmet.” Newsboy: Popular up until the 1950s, this 8-section small-brimmed hat has made a comeback! Although it was worn by the working class of newsboys and cab-drivers, it is now a popular hat to stylishly dress your little boy in! Bonnet: A hat that ties under the chin, typically with a brim framing the face. Historically worn by women and children, now it’s most popular for infants.
When You Build Your Dream Home Build It On A Superior Foundation The Superior Advantage America's finest homes are being built on our foundations. Maybe it's because Superior Walls is the leader in residential precast foundation systems. Maybe it's because our high-strength concrete walls are created in a factory-controlled environment with built-in insulation. Or maybe homeowners just like warm, dry basements. Whatever the reason, more new homes are resting on Superior Walls foundations.

Kosherfest! World renown as the world’s largest kosher certified products trade show, approximately 6,000 supermarket heads, caterers and kosher food establishments attend yearly. With over 325 exhibitors featuring their kosher certified products and services for the kosher market, there’s always something exciting to see. It’s here that suppliers of kosher certified products have the greatest opportunity to reach thousands of buyers from across the globe by presenting their products and/or services at the Kosherfest event. Kosherfest serves the kosher food industry, which has seen a tremendous explosion of growth in recent years. Gone are the simple days where small, rundown grocery stores stocked the basic food items. Gone are the days when one pizza store served the entire community. Today large, immaculate supermarkets are stocked with every imaginable kosher item, restaurants with exotic and intricate dishes, and large

Over 325 exhibitors featuring their kosher certified products and services for the kosher market.
“People think positively about kosher food,” said Mordy Dicker of Englewood, Executive Vice President of Business Development for KEDEM/Kayco, “it’s become trendy.” Kayco is a merger of KEDEM Foods, Kenover Marketing and B&W Foods. The company has a huge distribution center in Bayonne and is now the largest kosher distributor in the world with thousands of products and more than 100 brands.
Three chefs engaged in a heated culinary battle during Kosherfest’s 8th Annual Culinary Competition presented by The Center for Kosher Culinary Arts. The winner, Chef Jasmine Einalhori of Sage Kitchen, beat out Chef Bryan Gruka and Chef Albert Bijou with her dish of turkey Bolognese with bean radish radicchio and fennel salad with watermelon radish during the 30 minute cook-off. A trophy and $500 cash prize was the winner’s prize. The contest was hosted by judges Joshua Massin, Alan Boner, and Jamie Geller.
^ Preparations for the cook-off
At the Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secausus, New Jersey, on November 10th and 11th, the Kosherfest event brought together thousands of buyers and vendors alike, from all specters of the kosher market. Jews from all walks of life comprised the bulk of attendees. Before entering the hall where the booths were displayed, attendees passed a long wall of showcases highlighting new kosher products. The floor of the show was divided by aisles; on the side of each aisle each vendor displayed their products in creatively decorated booths to catch the buyers’ eyes.
Numerous exhibitors put out samples of food their company produces so that buyers can get a taste of what they have to offer. This year, while there were no overt trends in the kosher food industry, there appeared to be a growing momentum towards healthful, and specialty foods like glutenfree cooking and baking alternatives. Companies like Kedem (also known as Kayco) have continued to expand their gluten-free lines which began last year. Health Garden, an up and coming company of healthy sugar subsitutes, displayed an entire line of

healthful sweeteners. As in previous years, the continued success of ready-made frozen foods like pizza, prepared fish and side dishes for the kosher consumer abounded. Another subtle but interesting trend we noticed, were large sized snack packages typically sold to grocery stores, but now being bought by individual kosher consumer. Pas Yisroel displayed large canisters filled with small pastry snacks that are to be sold in grocery stores. It was thrilling to catch a behind the scenes glimpse of the up and coming new food products!

Hachnosas Sefer Torah at FountainView
Dedication Ceremony Brought Generations Together Over 300 people gathered together last Sunday, November 15th to celebrate the Hachnosas Sefer Torah at FountainView at College Road, Rockland County’s premier retirement community. The community received a Sefer Torah from the Sperling family to commemorate the memory of Paul and Helen Sperling, who were residents of the community. Joining in the celebration with the Sperlings, were the community’s senior residents, staff and family, area residents and children from Yeshiva of Spring Valley, Mezamrin, who carried flags commemorating the occasion. The festivities included the Rabbi Yerachmiel Seplowitz writing the final letters in the torah, the march throughout the lobby accompanied by the Yedidim Choir, the procession and dancing outside the community entrance and the concluding ceremony in the community’s town hall. Rochelle Graubard, the Sperling’s daughter, spoke of the inspiring life their parents enjoyed at FountainView. She said that her parents came on a trial basis and were truly impressed with the service, the well-kept grounds and the pool. But most important, the personnel at the community were exceptional in how they accommodated everyone’s needs and treated them with dignity and respect. In particular, her father was ecstatic that there is a shul on the premises and enjoyed daily prayer services. Paul and Helen Sperling were married for 72 years and Paul lived until 100 years old. Rochelle noted that the family felt a Sefer Torah seemed the most fitting way to immortalize the memory of their mother and father. Neither of them was ostentatious and they always valued what was

truly important. The family felt now it is befitting to commemorate their lives with the simcha and love of Torah. The magnificent Hashnosas Sefer Torah coincided with the day after Paul Sperling’s Hebrew birthday and honored the couple for the boundless love they exhibited for their fellow Jews and their dedication to Yiddishkeit.

THE PROBLEM WITH GRAY
My husband drives a gray minivan. So does my son, and so does my son-inlaw. Three of my neighbors also drive gray minivans. Check the parking lot of any supermarket, yeshiva, catering hall or bungalow colony, and you’ll notice that most of the cars parked there are… gray minivans! Apparently, the car companies had a deal with the navy’s surplus division to buy their leftover gray paint. So, what’s really wrong with everyone’s car being the same color? If you ever stood on a street corner with four large Amazing Savings bags waiting to be picked up, you know that this phenomenon poses a big problem. There you are, looking for a gray van. And it just so happens that out of every five or six cars that pass your way, at least three are gray vans. My husband does not understand the problem. “Just
I once went into a grocery store to pick up a few things. My husband parked near a snow bank to wait for me. While I was inside the store another spot became empty and he moved the car, but he forgot to call me to say that he had moved... With two grocery bags in hand, I climbed the snow bank and opened the passenger side door. At the wheel sat a young man, who at first glance resembled my son-in-law. My first thought was “What’s he doing here?” The young man’s thought must have been a little more alarming, “What’s she doing here?” As I started to ask him where his father-in-law had disappeared to, I realized my mistake. I was mortified!
My first thought was “What’s he doing here?” check the license plate!” he advises. Try that from two hundred feet away, especially when your view is partially blocked by a TOR bus waiting to drop off its passengers. Anyone who is married to a gray minivan driver has her stories, some humorous, some not, about approaching the wrong car. Here are two of mine.

Another minivan confusion occurred when my neighbors were making a simcha in a hall that had very limited parking. My husband parked on the street while we went inside to wish the baal simcha “Mazel Tov”. When I came out of the hall I headed straight to the place where we had left the car, not knowing that my husband had come out before me and had found a
IN AND AROUND OU
more convenient spot. Boy was my friend’s husband surprised when I opened the passenger door of his car. Boy was I embarrassed! Even some car services are in on the gray mania. Just last week, I called a car service to ask him why the car wasn’t there yet. His answer was: “One more minute, gray minivan.” In the ensuing minute (more like 180 seconds) I counted seven gray minivans, five of them passing by consecutively. When his lease was up recently, my husband let me choose the color of our new van, showing me the choices in the car dealership’s brochure. (That’s the only thing I get to choose. The other options are my boys’ department.) I
actually thought I had chosen a shade of brown. To my utter disappointment, he drove up in a brand-new van: gray again. No wonder they say you should not trust anything but reallife coloring. The only solution to this dilemma seems to be ordering a custom color car. How about burnt orange, avocado green, or a bright fuchsia? The problem with this solution is twofold. First of all, I doubt that my husband would want to drive such a car. And secondly, I am also sure that the year I decide to do this, so will everyone else, leaving me back to square one. And so my friends, THAT is the problem with gray.

I absolutely love the phone orders that my favorite dry goods store offers. It slices my shopping trip in half!
I once walked into a store and saw something I liked at the right price and they had it only in the size I needed - I knew it was there for me!
I find the sales help in Prim absolutely amazing. They give me their honest opinion, the store is very well stocked and I am in and out in no time!
I love the convenience of the stores that offer over-the-phone shopping (like DG Express). I just make a phone call and everything gets delivered to my door.
The thing I find myself shopping for most is hosiery. They donâ€™t last me through the week!
I walked into Designerâ€™s Spot for weekday pants and walked out with a Shabbos outfit for my two girls and a weekday set for my entire family all under $200! Great service and great prices.
I recently shopped at Sareka. Their great prices, selection and friendly sales help make it a wonderful experience.
Before Yom Tov when I went shopping for shoes at Shoe B-doo, I could easily focus on one child at a time because the other children were occupied on the slides.
The biggest factor for me is a store that has a fair return policy. That way, a customer doesnâ€™t have to be trapped with making a decision.
I was looking for a particular black skirt in my size in S&W. The saleslady was so nice. She checked it up and saw that there must still be one last one in the store. She browsed through hundreds of skirts in the dressing room, and bingo! She found it!
I once went out to shop with my triplets and we found something that made all of us happy!
I needed a certain pair of SAS shoes to bring to my sister-in-law in Israel. Mrs. Litzman from Monsey Shoes customordered them for me!
I saw something I loved, which the store had in all sizes except for mine. A few weeks later, I walked into a different store, found the same item, and saw that they only had my size left, in my preferred color 50% off!

G N I T N E R PA Q&A By Faiga Bineth
I am the mother of an extremely bright and intellectually gifted three-year-old girl, ke”h. Over the summer, we were debating back and forth whether or not we should register her for school. On the one hand, she is quite gifted; on the other hand, we were concerned about her social and emotional readiness. We are aware that beginning school is a milestone which involves many changes and adjustments to new experiences. Since she is by nature more of a sensitive child, we couldn’t determine whether or not she was ready to flourish in a classroom environment. After much thought, we decided to delay the option of school for another year. However, now that school has started, I am faced with a daunting responsibility in determining what my role is as a mother in this uncommon situation. I would love to hear from you what my focus should be this year.
THE PARENTING COACH RESPONDS: You’ve actually touched upon a hotly debated topic. In the past, age has been the single most used criterion for starting school. Yet research in the fields of education and neuroscience has improved the understanding of childhood development, allowing for more discussion on this issue. Frequently, parents with gifted children simply cannot wait for their child to start school. After all, they believe that their child obviously possesses a mind the likes of which has not been seen in generations. Who would not rush this little genius into preschool at age two? Moreover, how can they deprive the Jewish people of the future accomplishments of their little gadol hador for even one day? We have to understand though,
/ THE MONS E Y V IE W
that there is an emotional factor in determining school readiness. As R’ Chaim Friedlander zt”l pointed out, there is a strong emotional element involved in a child’s preparedness for formal education. Although the mind
Every mother should strive to be a “Chava” - the cultivator of the language and the thoughts of her child. may be ready, what good is it to begin schooling if the body, emotions, or spirit is still weak? Therefore, as we try to determine a child’s readiness for school, we must concern ourselves primarily with her emotional and social readiness. There is a great deal a child can benefit from staying home
The Rosh Yeshiva thought for a while and then responded: “At age five, I recommend that he be studying blocks!”
/ THE MO NS E Y V IE W
an extra year. There is an old Yiddish adage that goes: “Unter a mammas fartich is gut tzu zein,” translated as: “It is good to be beneath a mother’s apron.” This is to imply that a child can learn so much just by being around her mother in the security of her home. Rav Shamshon Rafoel Hirsch zt”l asserts that it is the mother of a child who is primarily responsible for his or her early education. Just as the first mother in the history of mankind was named Chava, which literally means “giver of thoughts” or “she who speaks,” every mother should strive to be a “Chava” - the cultivator of the language and the thoughts of her child. Thus she is duly charged with the role of teaching language and thinking skills to her child. Rabbi Hirsch further explains that a mother shouldn’t concern herself with specific schoolwork in anticipation of eventual schooling, like teaching the child to recite multiplication tables etc. Although the intention may be pure, it is often more damaging than helpful. Rather, instead of teaching her child learning-based skills, a mother should confine her activities to something far more important: she should teach her child “how to learn.” This means that she should teach her how to think and speak properly, to perceive things correctly, and to utilize her senses consciously and intelligently. The easiest and quickest way to work on the “how to learn” set of skills is through play. Although some adults think that play is a waste of time - it is actually play that allows children to reach their highest potential. It is absolutely essential for their survival and development! When children are given the freedom to play, their minds, bodies, and spirits fully develop and thrive. The methods used to convey the knowledge of “how to learn” require much sensitivity, creativity, and involvement. Listed below are just a few activities that serve a useful purpose.
DRESS-UP /PUPPETS: The “childish” speech, games, toys, and social interactions of children are critical to their maturation and development. It is often difficult to wait and to be sure that all systems - physical, emotional, as well as intellectual, are ready, especially when we are faced with an outstanding mind. However, we must remember to keep the glow on our children’s faces by raising them in accordance with the vision of proper chinuch promoted by Chazal. Sometimes that means keeping our gifted three-year-old home for yet another year of focusing on healthy play.
MEMORY GAMES: Children gain much by playing memory

games. By memorizing where items are located, the brain is sharpened. They are excellent for concentration and strengthening memory. BUILDING TOYS: Building toys are a useful tool in developing many skills, and also gives the child a sense of accomplishment. The child should be praised on the effort of building rather than for the outcome of it. In this vein, R’ Yitzchok Ruderman zt”l was once asked by a well-meaning father what subject to learn with his five-year-old son. The Rosh Yeshiva thought for a while and then responded: “At age five, I recommend that he be studying blocks!” PUZZLES: Puzzles are great for the development of the mind, and as an added benefit they are generally non-competitive. CUT AND PASTE, CLAY, FINGER-PAINT ETC...: These activities help a child learn how to utilize her intellectual capacities in conjunction with her physical skills. Such ability is a necessary prerequisite for schooling.

LET’S GET CRAFTY
ACTIVITIES TO FOREVER OBLITERATE THE COMMON KVETCH
MOMMY, I’M BORED!
It’s the season of coats and jackets and multi-colored leaves crunching merrily underfoot. It is also the beginning of children being underfoot. “Mommy, I’m bored,” is bound to become the popular refrain as the children begin spending more and more time inside due to the chilly weather. When the standard toys and games lose their innate appeal, try the following - the perfect solution to alleviate the boredom! Girls and boys alike can enjoy these indoor play ideas. (And we won’t be surprised to see older siblings and Mommy joining the fun!)
MASKING TAPE CITY Age Level: 2-10+ Time Frame: 30 minutes-3 days Supplies needed: masking tape
Designate an area for construction. Begin by sticking strips of masking tape to the floor to create roads, parking lots, shopping centers, etc. Raise the fun level up a notch by building the masking tape city over couches, boxes, into closets…Kids could
even create a maze for drivers to get lost in. Once done, bring on the traffic! You may want to leave the tape for a couple of days to get the most out of each turn in the road. And the best part? Tearing away all the masking tape, of course!
MARSHMALLOW TOWERS Age Level: 5-15+ Time Frame: 30 minutes-3 hours Supplies needed: marshmallows, toothpicks
Kids are bored of legos and blocks? Try this new twist on building! Use marshmallows as connectors and toothpicks as beams! Let imagination get to work as children
erect skyscrapers, bridges, and little houses. Really want a challenge? Use big marshmallows with spaghetti sticks and aim for the ceiling…Can you beat the projects pictured?
FLYING SCHOOL Age Level: 3-10+ Time Frame: 30 minutes-1 hour For those of you who’ve been sent out of class for throwing paper airplanesthis is your opportunity for atonement! Teach your little ones the fine art of paper airplane c r a f t i n g (There’s a diagram for those who were studiously writing notes in that classroom…) and have your pilots test their flying skills. Cut holes in the oak tag of various sizes and designate a point-value for each size hole. Hang from a doorway or empty area and let those airplanes fly! Tally the points each child earns when his plane flies through the holes.
Supplies needed: oak tag, construction paper, scissors, marker

CREDIT SCORE Affects Your Mortgage Rate
your report," says Matt Hackett, underwriting manager at Equity Now, a direct mortgage lender in New York.
BY ANN ZEILINGOLD
HOW TO CLEAN UP YOUR CREDIT
Your credit score: The higher your credit score, the lower the interest rate. Not only is a high credit score vital in getting a low mortgage rate, it influences whether you can get a home loan at all. Buyers below a certain threshold, typically a FICO score of 620, have a better chance of striking oil in their bathtub than securing a mortgage. It's possible, but it will require some really strong compensating factors. Depending on the lender, the mortgage rates offered to the highest and lowest credit tiers can vary as much as a full percentage point and a half, says Louis Spagnuolo, a former vice president of mortgage banking at WCS Lending in Boca Raton, Florida. Good credit can save you thousands on your mortgage. On a $400,000.00 mortgage loan, 4% costs $1,909.66 monthly and 5% costs $2,147.29 monthly. Over a 30-year period, the difference is huge, $85,546.80!
WHAT LENDERS LOOK FOR Lenders prefer borrowers with low balances, a long history of on-time payments and a mix of credit utilization -- for instance, a car loan and a couple of revolving accounts such as credit cards. "Lenders look at several variables on the credit report: outstanding debt; the outstanding debt relative to the total available debt; the length of the credit history; and the pursuit of new credit -- how many inquiries are on
/ T HE MONS E Y V IE W
Buyers below a certain threshold, typically a FICO score of 620, have a better chance of striking oil in their bathtub than securing a mortgage.
Ideally, you'll check your credit report a year or so before buying a home. That gives you time to correct errors in the report and change ways you use credit to improve your score. Get credit reports from Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. Make sure you get reports from all three. The information they contain can vary. Scour everything from the way your name is spelled to previous addresses to checking that each and every account is yours and reported correctly. If an account has been closed, make sure that is accurately reported. "Sometimes people will quickly glance over their information and that's it. But you should take the time and look
at the account numbers," says Steve Katz, senior marketing communications executive for TransUnion.
CORRECT AND WAIT All three credit bureaus make it easy to dispute errors online. If everything is correct, pay off balances and let time do the rest. The credit reporting agencies do charge a fee if you want to know your credit score. Lenders look at all three scores and use the middle one, Hackett says.
WHAT ELSE YOU CAN DO
new lines of credit in a short time. Multiple new accounts can decrease your credit score. Pay down your credit cards and don’t charge them up. This is one of the easiest way to raise your score. Do not co-sign for others because besides affecting your score if it is not paid on time, it will affect your debt ratio. Lesson to the wise: Reach out within a year of purchasing a home, or as early as you can to determine your creditworthiness, and if necessary, institute a course of action to facilitate a smooth mortgage closing.
If you're buying a home soon, try not to apply for new credit. Though it's not always avoidable -- for instance, if you need a car loan or college financing -- you should resist opening several
