MUMOIN CHECK CASHING

(Re: The Binding of Blessings, Issue 274) In regard to the article you published about tefillin, I’d like to bring awareness to another few points one should have in mind when purchasing tefillin. • The sofer should be certified (have a ksav kabbalah) to write parshiyos. • The ksav should be valid. (It usually expires after three years.) • The parshiyos should be checked by a certified bodek. (Being bodek tefillin is a profession different from writing tefillin, and it requires a separate ksav.) The bodek needs to have the qualifications to be bodek (i.e., a keen eye to catch mistakes). • The bodek should be well paid for his work (he should be paid for his time and not per job) so he should be able to check the tefillin without pressure. As you wrote, consider that a pair of tefillin has 3,188 letters, and if even only one letter is pasul (e.g., touches another letter, isn’t whole in one piece, or is missing a fraction), the whole tefillin is pasul, and each time one makes a bracha on it, it is a bracha l’vatalah. Thank you for your amazing publication, E. Herzog P.S. We’re working on organizing a mechon to upgrade the bedikah of tefillin (as there is an urgent need for it). For comments or suggestions please call: 845-669-6066.

The Chaya Sury experience has only gotten better.

SIMCHA SEASON SENSATION (Re: Chocolate Rings and Glittery Things, Issue 274) We were very excited to see the chocolate molds featured. It’s simcha season, after all, and it looks like a pretty doable thing to send over to a baal simcha. I’d like to know what type of molds were used and where they are available. I’m also wondering if there’s any solution to avoid air bubbles. A Reader

MALKY TAUBER RESPONDS: These rings were made in silicone molds. Molds like these are available wherever baking supplies are sold. To prevent air pockets, place the entire mold in a pan while the chocolate is still melted, and tap it gently several times against a hard surface such as a table or counter.

(Re: The Binding of Blessings, Issue 274) I enjoyed the beautiful article about tefillin. On page 146 the author writes that one should leave the cover on the shel yad to protect the corners. There are different views on this subject. Many of the poskim are of the opinion that the shel yad should not be covered. See Aruch Hashulchan (32,88), Shu”t Levushai Mordechai (2,178), Pardas Yosef (Tetzavah 25,11), etc. Eluzer Brieger Yeshiva Torah Vodaas

(Re: Just What I Needed, Inbox, Issue 274) My letter is in response to “A Working Mother” who commented on the chicken cutlet recipes featured in an earlier issue. She writes that before she heads out for work, she leaves a tray of frozen chicken cutlets to thaw on the counter, and then prepares the chicken upon her return home. She says, “As my mother taught me, if the chicken is still really cold when you handle it, it’s still perfectly fresh, and Mother is always right!” I take issue with the above statement, assuming that “A Working Mother” has a regular part-time or full-time job. First of all, chicken should never be allowed to defrost on a kitchen counter or sink or similar. The USDA clearly states on their site, “Perishable foods should never be thawed on the counter or in hot water and must not be left at room temperature for more than two hours. There are safe ways to thaw food: in the refrigerator, in cold water, and in the microwave.” They are the experts in food safety, and we should all

trust them. Yes, it’s true that the chicken may still feel cold when you return home from work, but you can’t know what is going on inside. Not all of the pack will defrost at the same rate, so there may be some parts that are warm and starting to enter the danger zone where bacteria can multiply quickly, while another part of the chicken is cold or even frozen. What may have worked for you or your mother in the past (or so you think) may have just been your good fortune. But to promote bad practices in a letter to the editor that is read by hundreds, if not thousands, of readers is very, very dangerous and misleading. I don’t think you would want to be held responsible for any person contracting a foodborne illness because they followed your advice. I encourage everyone to follow the instructions outlined in the feature or spend a few minutes reading up on food safety and handling. Hopefully, it will spare you an illness or two! Rachel N.

A HIT IN MY HOME (Re: Cutlets in Your Kitchen, Issue 273) Thank you for the chicken cutlets recipes. I’m always on the lookout for new good recipes that use cutlets, and now I got a great selection of

ideas — and such awesome tips! I tried a few of the recipes, and they were a hit in my home. Lots of hatzlacha! M.M.

YOUR VOICE CENSOR THE COLLECTION Dear Parents of Sticker-Collecting Girls, My daughter, too, is caught up in this craze. However, if we’re honest with ourselves, we’ll realize that the stickers our daughters are trading leave much to be desired. I’d go so far as to say that there’s a sickness in our midst, and it’s coming into the community by way of stickers… You see, just yesterday I peeked in my child’s sticker book and almost fainted. Our sweet, Yiddishe daughter had stickers that would make anyone with any decency blush. I’m flummoxed as to why any Yiddishe parent would buy such stickers for her child and allow her to spread them around the neighborhood and among her classmates! If we don’t dress in a certain manner, how can we allow our children to have stickers that portray characters dressed in ways that are far from halachically okay? This

“innocent” activity is the perfect way for tuma to creep into our pure children’s minds and make the non-aidel pictures seem so much less horrible than they truly are. Can we kill the sticker phase? Probably not. The trading of stickers brings children much joy. But at the very least, please, please ensure that your children have and trade only stickers that don’t go against everything we stand for! A Concerned Parent

A FIELD OF OPPORTUNITY There are many people in the community who are looking for parnassah, yet there is a field of opportunity that is largely untapped: bus driving. As you may have noticed, many drivers from outside of our community are driving buses full of heimish children. Wouldn’t it be better if someone from Klal Yisroel would be sitting at the wheel? The job is well paid, and the hours can be as few or as many as one would like. It requires a specialized license, the reason not just anyone can be a bus driver. But that license, the CDL, isn’t too hard to get. Right now the field is ripe with job offerings. Is it time to go for your CDL? Hoping to See Yidden in the Driver Seat

WEEK 10:

QUESTIONS, QUESTIONS, QUESTIONS This week we present responses to a selection of questions received from readers.

1.

With regard to the halacha that one may not enter a shul other than for Torah or tefillah — I’ve toured quite a bit of Eretz Yisroel and have visited many of the old shuls in Tzefas. Was I allowed to walk in just to see and admire the shul? Also, ruins of ancient shuls have been uncovered in places such as in Beit Alfa and Tzippori — are they also subject to the same halacha? A Tourist

Good question. Shuls with rich histories are most beautiful to visit and admire, but one must bear in mind that the rules of kedusha certainly apply.[1] Entering merely to admire the shul is not a mitzvah and is categorized as entry for a personal purpose. Since one cannot fully appreciate these shuls from the outside by peering in through a window or door, one would be allowed to enter pursuant to the guidelines that were mentioned. Thus, entering would require some learning, the saying of a pasuk, or at least pausing in place for a few seconds in reverence of the kedusha present.[2] Regarding the archeological finds in Beit Alfa, Tzippori and other sites around Eretz Yisroel — although shuls in Eretz Yisroel generally retain their inherent kedusha when in a state of disuse or even when in ruin, many of these sites pose no issue at all. The reason for this is that although these sites clearly indicate that they were some sort of place of worship, to suggest


that these were shuls of halacha-observant Yidden is dubious at best. All indicators point to these belonging to some type of misguided Jews, such as Tzeddukim or similar. Many of these sites bear mosaic floors with, among other questionable images, the clear depiction of an avodah zara. Despite the fact that they are officially listed as a “beis knesses,“ there is no reason to assume that these places have any kedusha at all, and plenty of reason to assume otherwise.[3]

2.

I know this question is not really about hilchos beis haknesses, but you mentioned some of the guidelines for keeping on a head covering. I do quite a bit of swimming for exercise and like to listen to Torah classes or shiurim while I do my laps. Is it a problem that I’m thinking Torah while my head is uncovered? Mordechai R., Lakewood

As mentioned, the highest level of wearing a yarmulke is mandated in a beis knesses and when reciting Hashem’s name, such as in a bracha. While the Mishnah Berurah rules that Torah study also falls within this category, it is not entirely clear that it has the same level of severity. As such, a case could be made that insofar as in a pool or similar environment a lack of head covering is most natural, it does not convey any lack of respect. Again, this would not rank as a sufficient factor in regard to saying a bracha, only in regard to Torah study. An additional mitigating factor in your case is that your Torah involvement is one of thought alone, something below the level of verbal expression. An illustration of this difference is that we do not make Birchas HaTorah prior to thinking Torah thoughts in the morning, as the bracha is required only on a higher level of Torah involvement: that of speech and possibly that of writing.[4] Considering these factors, it is fair to say that while it may be laudable to wear a bathing cap in deference to kavod haTorah, doing so is certainly not halachically required.[5]

3.

In regard to the issue with bringing weapons into a shul, where do we draw the line on lethality? How about a large piece of sharp glass that can inflict lethal wounds? That definitely can shorten lives and be called a mekatzer yamim. What about a sharp plastic knife? Or a large piece of cloth? Also, what’s your source equating a beis midrash to a beis knesses regarding lethal weapons, given that the Shulchan Aruch (151:6) discusses only the latter? Yechiel R., Boro Park

cloth and see a weapon. Shattered glass is quite dangerous, but again, I don’t think people view it as a weapon. Water can cause drowning, but water is not viewed as a weapon. It’s a matter of how people perceive the natural identity of each item, not necessarily its ability. (On a related note, an interesting — and somewhat harrowing — question was posed after World War II. Each year, the yeshivah in Har Tzion would mark a special day of tefillah in memory of a town in Europe that had been eradicated by the Nazis. For added effect, the chazzan would wear a gartel consisting of a rope with which one of the Yidden in the town had been hanged. Was this permissible? The ruling they received, found in Teshuvos Kol Mevaser, was to refrain from using this rope in light of the fact that it had played a role in shortening a life... There, though, the rope was not a theoretical weapon, but something that had actually been used for murder.) As far as your second question, my apologies for the lack of citation. Although, as you mentioned, the Shulchan Aruch and the Mishnah Berurah express this halacha only in the context of a beis knesses, the Biur Halacha (siman 151, s.v. B’sakin aruch) clearly applies the halacha to a beis midrash as well. This is established by the Aruch Hashulchan, too. This application is quite logical, as a home for Torah is certainly a place dedicated to fostering longevity, as we say in davening, “Ki heim chayeinu v’orech yameinu.” Rabbi Elias is a maggid shiur at the Yeshiva Gedola of Hampstead in Montreal, Canada. Rabbi Elias’ daily halacha/parsha shiur, given at the Agudah of Montreal, is available at www.TorahDownloads.com. For questions or comments, you can write to collectedaudio@gmail.com.

Worth noting: Tour guides bringing groups of non-observant Jews into these shuls should take care to do so in a halachically acceptable manner, be it in regard to this halacha, the halacha mandating a covered head, or other, and not be a cause of lifnei iver lo sitein michshol by placing a Jew in a situation where he will violate halacha.

‫ודלא כמש"כ בתשובת כפי אהרון דלדבריו נמצא שאיסור כניסה נתבטל מכל וכל‬

Although they do feature depictions of the Menorah as well as other Beis Hamikdash motifs, it is important to realize that historically, many of these groups believed in some convoluted form of a hybrid system including both the Beis Hamikdash and avodah zarah. People in the days of Eliyahu Hanavi worshipped the Ba’al while still professing belief in Hashem. The Tzeddukim aimed not for their own temple, but to serve in the Kodesh Kodashim of the Beis Hamikdash. The confluence of strange, forbidden imagery together with that of the Mikdash strongly indicates belonging to such a group.

[3]

]4[

In regard to your first question — it’s hard to draw a definitive demarcation line, but I think it’s pretty fair to say the examples you gave don’t naturally have much of a lethal connotation. Yes, pretty much anything can kill under the right circumstances, but the average person will not look at a piece of

[5] A discussion of this question, addressing as well a number of other factors invoked, appears in Teshuvos Shemen Zayis Zach by Rabbi Zev Cohen, Rav of the Choshen Mishpat Kollel in Chicago.

Vaccines Potentially Days Away, Even as More Restrictions Loom The first Americans to be rolling up their sleeves and getting a COVID-19 vaccine may be doing so as early as Chanukah, while bad news continues to roll in from all over the area. According to CNN, the scientific head of President Trump’s vaccine team Moncef Slaoui said that if all goes well, vaccine distribution could begin on December 11 or 12. Pfizer submitted an application for an emergency authorization for its COVID-19 vaccine to the Food and Drug Administration on Friday, with the agency’s vaccine commission scheduled to meet on December 10. If approved, the vaccine could be rolled out within a day or two, though Saloui said it could take until May for enough vaccines to be manufactured throughout the country, potentially bringing life back to normal. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the country’s leading vaccine expert, warned that a significant majority of Americans would need to be vaccinated in order for herd immunity to be achieved. “We need to get as many people as possible vaccinated,” said Fauci, who explained that the vaccine is being vetted by the FDA as well as independent advisory committees in order to ensure its safety. But things are looking less rosy in the short term, with New York City schools shut down last week and Governor Andrew Cuomo warning that all of New York City could be shifted into an orange zone, capping shuls at 33% of capacity with a 25-person maximum, limiting both indoor and outdoor gatherings to 10 people, and closing all schools that have remained open. A Sunday morning press conference had the governor cautioning that parts of Staten Island could be heading to red-zone status that would close schools and nonessential businesses, with shuls limited to just 10 people, regardless of size. In Rockland County, additional areas have been placed under yellow-zone status, including Pearl River, West Haverstraw, Stony Point and Suffern, with additional microclusters added in Westchester and Orange counties. The tri-state area reached a dubious milestone on Sun-

day, confirming its one millionth positive coronavirus case. Newark Mayor Ras Baraka has put his city on a 10-day lockdown starting on November 25, while New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy ordered restaurants statewide to close nightly by 10 p.m. and lowered the limit on indoor gatherings from 25 people to 10 people. New York restaurants, bowling alleys and gyms statewide have also been ordered to close by 10 p.m. in order to prevent gatherings that could potentially spark the spread of infection.

Severe Pandemic-Related Financial Shortfall at MTA Could End MetroNorth Trains to Rockland Faced with plunging ridership and rising costs, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority announced a potential budget filled with cuts and price hikes that would also spell the end of all train service to Rockland County. The Associated Press reported that the MTA is hoping for $12 billion in relief from Washington to help it get through the year 2024, with an internal study showing that it may take until that time to restore ridership to near pre-pandemic levels. Without those federal funds, the agency said that it is faced with nearly 10,000 job cuts, toll hikes at its bridges and tunnels, service slowdowns, and the complete elimination of any services west of the Hudson River. Adding insult to injury, the proposed service cuts were omitted in both the MTA’s presentation to its board and in its official press release, prompting Rockland County Executive Ed Day to slam the agency for its apparent disregard of west-of-the-Hudson commuters. “At the end of the day, we have transportation people looking for alternatives right now,” Day told NBC News. “I’m calling the MTA out now. If you are going to have that kind of elimination from service, I want to be released from any connection to the MTA. We will contract for our own service here in Rockland County. Period. And we will keep our own money.” Also slashed was ferry service between Haverstraw and

Ossining, as well as bus service put in place to take riders across the river in its stead. Two of four express trains that used to run on Metro-North’s Pascack Valley line were eliminated in 2018 and have yet to be restored. Day said that the MTA’s proposed doomsday budget leaves Rockland as the most underserved member of the Metropolitan Commuter Transportation District. “Eliminating west of Hudson rail service would leave Rockland County with no MTA service whatsoever,” said Day in a statement. “That said, we are already working with our state elected officials on legislation to leave the MTA and no longer subsidize services we do not receive.”

Elections Finally Over as Jaffee, Weber Both Admit Defeat With absentee ballot counting tapering off, two highly contested local races have finally been decided, with Michael Lawler unseating longtime Assemblywoman Ellen Jaffee and Elijah Reichlin-Melnick topping William Weber in the state Senate race. The Journal News reported that Lawler, deputy supervisor of Orangetown, had a margin of just over a thousand votes, sending Jaffee packing after seven years marked by contentious relationships with the Jewish community. Jaffee made waves in 2015 when she called into question the integrity of Jewish votes while discussing a school board election on the Assembly floor. She blamed the chassidic community for her defeat, saying it “had more to do with the voters in New Square disliking my support of East Ramapo School District and the students of color. “They wanted someone who will bow down [to] the public school community, defund the East Ramapo School District,” said Jaffee. Like Jaffee, Lawler supports the concept of a monitor who would have veto power within the East Ramapo School District, but he criticized her bitter refusal to accept her defeat. “The reality is that she lost touch with her district on the issues of affordability, education and public safety and failed to make a coherent argument warranting reelection,” said Lawler. Reichlin-Melnick, a trustee for the Village of Nyack, beat out Weber by just over 7,000 votes, picking up more than 3,000 votes through absentee ballots. Reichlin-Melnick promised to earn the support of those who voted for Weber who ran unsuccessfully for Town of Ramapo supervisor in 2017. “I am going to hold my opponent accountable for his pledges to fully fund education, not raise taxes on the middle class, be fiscally responsible, and support our law enforcement,” said Weber, noting that had no plans to seek public office again. Reichlin-Melnick will be taking the state Senate seat that had been held by David Carlucci for ten years. Carlucci gave up his position hoping to se-

cure the Democratic nomination to succeed Nita Lowey in the House of Representatives, a spot that was ultimately won by Mondaire Jones.

Chaverim Answers the Call as Punishing Storm Causes Blackouts and Flooding Members of Chaverim had their work cut out for them as a fast-moving storm hit the Monsey area on November 17, taking down trees and power lines, and leaving thousands in the Hudson Valley in the dark. The storm blew in quickly at approximately 8 p.m., bringing with it torrential downpours and winds that topped 50 miles per hour. Most of the damage occurred in Pomona and on Spook Rock Road, but other areas were affected as well, with a fallen tree blocking Old Nyack Turnpike at Hammond Road and floods swamping Francis Place at Ronald Drive and Park Lane at Adar Court. Phones rang off the hook at Chaverim, with multiple volunteers responding to each location, cutting and moving tree limbs, guarding fallen power lines until help arrived, unclogging leaf-filled sewers, and setting up emergency generators for those who rely on lifesaving medical equipment.



An Interview with

RAIZY FRIED

Author of Lekovid Shabbos Kodesh, a Shabbos Lifestyle Book By: Gila Stern

Gila: Your book is definitely not just a cookbook. It’s an engaging read and a valuable, comprehensive resource. Can you tell me more about the concept behind your book? Raizy: The initial concept has been on my mind for a few years. Shabbos is the central point of our lives, the culmination of the entire week, showcasing our purpose and bringing us full circle. It forces us to stop and connect with our Creator, and gives us the tools and opportunities to be present and take a look at the faces of our families. If not for Shabbos we would be running in circles! Shabbos is so incredibly important, yet the book I wanted to read about Shabbos––a Shabbos Lifestyle book––didn’t exist. So I decided I would create it. Gila: That’s a very ambitious goal! I can see that a lot of thought and work went into this project. How long did the whole journey take you, from your initial idea until your book became a reality? Raizy: I’ve been creating and curating the best over the last few years, with the thought that I might eventually write a book. Around two years ago, it became a more serious possibility, and I started pulling together a book outline. Baruch Hashem, I got busy with life and had a baby in the middle of all this preparation. We started working seriously on the execution and creation of this book in July, and it was already in print by Rosh Hashanah. Gila: Why did you decide to do a book on Shabbos? Raizy: I believe a big chunk of our duties as Yiddishe mammes and homemakers is bringing Shabbos into our homes. We do it 52 times a year! It can be challenging, especially since it all goes down at the end of the week, when we often find

ourselves exhausted. I believe we women can use all the tips, ideas and empowerment we can get! Both my husband and I grew up in true Hungarian–Chassidishe homes, where the Shabbos was glorified as it should be. We put in a lot of effort to honor the Shabbos Queen and fill our home with that special Shabbos ambiance, and we see a lot of berachah in return! I wanted to give all women the tools and tips to bring this special Shabbos feeling into their homes. This book was written for the Jewish woman. It covers every single element of Shabbos! It begins with the emotional mindset of how to enter the Shabbos feeling like a queen. It elaborates on oneg Shabbos, with many details and tips on how to fill our Shabbos with the most beautiful and pleasurable things. Then, of course, there are practical ideas, including over 95 of my favorite recipes, along with hacks, table setting ideas, flower care, and even Thursday night dinner ideas. Gila: Let’s talk about the recipes for a minute. Who are these recipes intended for? How difficult are they? Raizy: I think there is something for everyone! I included all the basic heimishe recipes for traditional dishes, including Chulent and Heimishe Fish with Kotchenyu. A young newlywed who wants to cook a heimishe Shabbos has everything she needs in this book. It can also help fill in the gaps for someone who’s still looking for that perfect Yaptchik, Yerushalmi Kugel or Chicken Capon recipe. The book is also filled with hacks for

AN INTERVIEW WITH RAIZY FRIED


common struggles––like how to keep farfel from drying out, and how to get your apple compote to be that perfect pink. In addition to the basics, there are also plenty of new recipes. An older, experienced cook who has her Shabbos food up to par, but is interested in adding something a little different, will find a favorite new kugel, a different roast recipe, or a new dessert to enhance the Shabbos meal. Gila: Your book isn’t rustic or modern. It has a certain elegance and timeless style which isn't often found in today's cookbooks. I found the whole style and aesthetic of the book to be very appealing – it’s a gorgeous masterpiece! How would you describe the style you chose, and what made you choose it? Raizy: I wanted this book to feel very feminine and tell the story of the wonderful Hungarian–Chassidishe lifestyle I grew up with. My goal was to infuse the book with this culture and the nostalgia that I feel as I look fondly back on my childhood. In keeping with this theme, each photo was styled using the finest china and linens. We didn’t use a single background

or slab of wood in this book; everything looks just the way it does in my own home, on a real Shabbos table with a vasse tishtech (white tablecloth). All the photo shoots took place in my own home, and my whole family was involved. I styled the book azoi vee es past (as it suits) for the Hungarian I am! There are no weathered spoons or crumbs lying around the plate. Sprinkling thick salt and crumbs may be trendy and natural looking, but that’s not real for us Hungarians: we clean up, definitely before we snap a photo! Gila: You shared a special part of yourself with this book. I think many women will connect to your ideas. How do you feel about the project, now that it’s done? Raizy: This book was written with my deepest passion and love. This is a special project that I enjoyed working on immensely. My home was filled with music and the productive atmosphere that emanates from the creation of meaningful work. I hope others will find it just as meaningful, and that it helps bring the beauty of Shabbos into their homes.

CHAPTER EIGHT RECAP: Ariella

receives a Shabbos invitation at her deceased husband’s parents’ house, but she declines it, not up to all the emotional work that a Shabbos there would entail. She reminisces about her ADHD behaviors as a child and how differently Osher’s manifested itself.

T

he story of the black sheep was about a prince who had been sent into exile because of his misbehavior — so contrary to the rest of his refined and cultured family members — and thought he had been forgotten there forever. Because he was so unruly, he never bothered to read the letters from his father, the king. Osher’s preschool teacher had told the class the parable in kindergarten, and Osher had returned home fascinated by the story of the prince who was the black sheep of his family. Reb Elazar and his son Nechemia, who was home from yeshivah for Shabbos, listened to Osher’s account with interest. “One boy asked the teacher if the mischievous prince would stand on the benches during circle time and jump onto the floor, ‘like Osher does.’ The kids all laughed, and the teacher told the boy that we don’t talk that way, but it didn’t help. And when my sister Ariella came to pick me up at the end of the day, I told her everything, and she went over to that boy and told him that when she was little, she also jumped off the chairs in her kindergarten class. But the girls didn’t make fun of her, because it’s not a nice thing to do.” Osher didn’t know that he was the first one of the boys to be doing this kind of “session” in the Reinesses’ private kitchen. The Friday night seudah was long over, and only he had gone up to help Reb Elazar and his son organize the refrigerator so that everything

could fit back in. “It’s a good thing you had an older protective sister,” Reb Elazar remarked. “Nu, did the boys stop insulting you after that?” “Yes, but only because a few days later I switched to the other class, so that boy didn’t have a chance to tease me anymore.” “What was the other class like?” Nechemia asked. “I went down to the lower class, to the three-year-olds. I was the oldest there, and it was nice.” “It was nice?” “Yes. The teacher there told the boys that I was her helper, and I played with everyone in the sand, and when we played with the toys, I told them stories.” “Stories about the black-sheep prince?” Reb Elazar chuckled. “Those, too. But I didn’t tell them that he was wild and bad. I just said that he didn’t read his father’s letters, so he didn’t know how much his family was waiting for him.” “And without being bad and unruly, Osher, do you also feel black and forgotten?” “Not forgotten. I know my parents haven’t forgotten me.” Osher leaned against the wall and looked into Rabbi Reiness’ caring eyes. Nechemia had moved to the other side of the kitchen, where the hot plate with the cholent was, allowing his father the privacy required for this heart-to-heart talk with his new student. “I’m happy you know that.” Reb Elazar sat down on one of the chairs. “Do you want some cholent, by the way?” he asked. “No, no. I don’t like cholent.” He gazed out of the window. “My family thinks about me all the time — I know they do. They were even able to send me a —” His eyes caught sight of the row of lemonade bottles on the dairy counter. “A bottle of lemonade, just like that.” His voice registered shock. “Exactly like that, Rebbi. How did that happen? Did my family send you a bottle of lemonade, too?!” “Yours was exactly like this?” Rabbi Reiness asked. “Yes,” Osher said. “I recognize the bottle. I thought it was something my sister had made herself. Now I see that it’s something store-bought, and that you also bought some. It’s good stuff. You can tell from the taste.” “I agree,” Reb Elazar said. Nechemia observed the conversation taking place six feet away from him, though he didn’t understand a word of it.

Osher Nechemia and I took a walk down to the beach on Motzei Shabbos. He didn’t have a lot of time until his bus to Yerushalayim was scheduled to leave, but he told me that he needed ten minutes next to the sea. “If my parents moved to the end of the world, I should at least enjoy it a bit,” he said. I suggested that he could enjoy it a lot more often if he came to learn and work in his father’s carpentry shop. He laughed and said that maybe, instead, I should come

back with him to his yeshivah in Yerushalayim. I told him that I didn’t even want to try, because I’d already given up on all standard yeshivos, and he stopped laughing. That was a shame, because he laughs just like his father; he has a pleasant laugh that’s not a drop scornful. He asked me why I was so despondent, and I decided that I didn’t really feel like spilling out my guts to someone who was twenty and a half. Even though I really admire his father, he was really just a stranger to me. So I just shrugged, and we sat down on the sand in silence. I don’t know what happened in the end, but suddenly I did start to talk. Digging in the sand with one hand, I described how I’d been a little rambunctious boy, and that when I grew older I got less wild on the outside, but that it didn’t help me concentrate more inside. I talked a lot, and he sat quietly and listened. Once, Ariella had told me that I talk too much about myself, and that I “forget to finish.” I don’t know what she means by that, because I don’t usually tell people about myself. But I guess when I do find the right person, I spill out everything I’ve kept bottled inside me for a long, long time. It didn’t look to me like Nechemia was very bothered by my long stories. Maybe it really didn’t bother him — or maybe he was annoyed, but having received his father’s chinuch, he just didn’t show his annoyance. Whatever it was, he stood up from the sand and said that he wanted to be my friend because he liked me, but he had no choice right now and had to run home to get his suitcase and hurry to the bus stop. We made up that next time he comes home from yeshivah, we’ll talk again. Not that I’m sure I’ll be able to; I can’t talk on demand. And I also don’t know how I’ll feel about him then, especially since it might be in only another month or two. I don’t know if I’ll be here in another month or two; I might leave this week.

After Nechemia left, I went into the carpentry shop. Only Dovid was there, sawing at something. He ignored me, just as he’d been ignoring me since that time when I spoke to him in a way that he didn’t like, as Reb Elazar put it. So I ignored him, too. I took a plank; I don’t even know what for. It was just an old, broken plank standing on the side. I used the short saw to cut off the two broken ends, turning the plank into an even rectangle. Then I picked up a pencil that I’d spotted on the floor

“And without being bad and unruly, Osher, do you also feel black and forgotten?”

134 / THE MONSEY VIEW / November 25, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

and began to sketch on the plank. I didn’t sketch anything in particular — just some slanted lines here and there, and some other scribbles. Suddenly, Dovid was standing next to me. He looked at my board and asked, “What are you doing?” I didn’t answer him, because I didn’t know myself what I was doing. I just continued sketching, until there was no more room left to sketch. “You’re not answering me, or what?” Dovid’s voice was hard. “What do you want me to tell you? I don’t know what I’m doing,” I said. Then I held the plank at a distance so I could get a better look at what I’d done. “You know the saying, ‘If you have nothing to do, then don’t do it here’?” “And do you know the saying, ‘Chacham einav b’rosho’?” He looked at me strangely. “What’s the connection?” “There is no connection. Just like what you said has no connection.” “What I said makes sense,” he snapped. “I said that if you came here to waste time and annoy me with your philosophies —”

“I didn’t come for that,” I answered calmly. “And the one who started philosophizing here about all kinds of strange sayings was not me,” I reminded him, and continued gazing at the sketches on my plank. Dovid moved away in a huff to continue whatever he’d been doing before. After a moment, I approached the table where he stood, wondering if I could do something with my plank. “Is there something I can use to carve the wood with?” I asked. “I mean, if I want to make these drawings into carvings.” “Oh, you’re suddenly interested in carpentry?” He stared at me for a long moment, as though he hadn’t yet decided whether I was normal or not. “Not carpentry. Just this plank.” He stood there for a few long seconds and then left the table. I thought he was leaving the shop, but then I saw him rummaging around on one of the messier shelves on the right side of the room. He came back with a strange-looking tool. “You plug this into an outlet,” he said, “and hold it by the handle. Just be careful, because the metal tip spins and gets very hot, and if you don’t watch your fingers you could get a serious burn. And that would not be fun, let me tell you.” Maybe he was waiting for me to tell him thank you for the tool and the warnings, but I was already immersed in my work, and I forgot to thank him. If this was carpentry, then maybe I really did like it. Only at about 1:30 at night, when I was ready to go up to my room, did I remember Dovid. But by now the carpentry shop was empty. So I put my smooth plank, whose sketches and scribbles had now been transformed into the words The Black-Sheep Prince, off to the side. Then I took another old, broken piece of wood and carved the words Thank you into it. To be continued…

Biden Announces National Security Team THE PULSE: Joe Biden announced the formation of the

new national security team that will serve in his administration. Tony Bilken is slated to serve as secretary of state; Alejandro Mayorkas as director of Homeland Security; Avril Haines as director of national intelligence; and Jake Sullivan as national security adviser TONY BLINKEN: Blinken served as deputy secretary of state and deputy national security adviser in the Obama administration. He has spoken approvingly of the Abraham Accords Peace Agreement that was successfully negotiated by the Trump administration. He hailed the accords as a positive development for the region that would allow

144 / THE MONSEY VIEW / November 25, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

for the creation of new business opportunities and more significant interactions between the people of the Middle East. Blinken has been critical of the proposed sale of F-35 fighter jets to the United Arab Emirates and is opposed to the idea of advanced weapon sales being approved by the American government as a quid pro quo for peace. Blinken believes that the sale of F-35s to the United Arab Emirates may undermine Israel’s qualitative military edge in the region. In a recent interview, Blinken said that he recognizes that the Palestinians and Israelis are far apart on many issues and that the likelihood of a peace agreement between them is low, but that neither side should take actions that preclude the possibility of peace in the future. Blinken also believes that it was wrong for the Trump administration to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal, as it has left Iran without oversight on its nuclear ambitions. Blinken, who is Jewish, was raised by a stepfather who survived the Ho-


locaust. Blinken was instrumental in securing funding for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system. Former Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren called Blinken “a true friend of Israel” and said that “he could think of no finer choice” for secretary of state. ALEJANDRO MAYORKAS: Mayorkas is Jewish and was born in Cuba. His mother is a Holocaust survivor. Mayorkas served as deputy assistant director of Homeland Security in the Obama administration, where he played a leading role in the thawing of relations between the U.S. and Cuba and DACA’s implementation. He has referred to the Jewish community as “my community” and said that the threats of rising anti-Semitism keep him up at night. He supported grants for security for nonprofits as well as funding to implement security measures for Jewish institutions. Mayorkas has also been instrumental in combating online extremism and anti-Semitism. The OU’s executive director for public policy, Nathan Diament, told Jewish Insider that Mayorkas “was a very good partner in the leadership of DHS.”

AVRIL HAINES: Haines served as deputy national security adviser in the

Obama administration. She has received criticism in the past from some in the pro-Israel community for signing a letter calling on the Democratic Party to oppose Israel’s plan to annex parts of the West Bank. The letter was also signed by ambassadors Martin Indyk and Dan Shapiro, who are considered friendly and supportive of Israel.

JAKE SULLIVAN: Sullivan believes that the Iran nuclear deal is the best way to stop Iran from producing a bomb. Since America pulled out of the agreement, Iran has increased its uranium production and reduced its nuclear breakout time. Sullivan has praised the Trump administration’s Abraham Accords, saying, “It’s good for the region, it’s good for Israel, it’s good for peace.” THE IMPACT: The selection of Blinken, Mayorkes, Haines and Sullivan

aligns with Biden’s stated goal of forging a centrist approach to confront the issues facing America. Biden chose to go with experienced, noncontroversial appointees. He decided to forgo candidates like former national security adviser Susan Rice, whom he feared could serve as lightning rods and stir up partisan resentment.

Biden Announces Pick for Treasury Secretary THE PULSE: As we go to press, Joe Biden announced his pick of former Fed Chairwoman Janet Yellin to serve as treasury secretary in his incoming administration. Yellin is considered a centrist mainstream candidate who can appeal to the Democratic base and the business community. Greg Valliere, the chief U.S. policy strategist at AGF Investments, said, “She seems to be popular in all factions, from the financial markets to Main Street.” Yellin, who is Jewish, will be the first woman to serve as treasury secretary.

Dictator Hugo Chavez, and communist nations such as Cuba. Longtime Trump ally Chris Christie called the press conference and Powell’s claims a national embarrassment. Fox’s Tucker Carlson said he reached out to Powell and that she got angry with him when he asked her for evidence to support her claims. He also stated that nobody on the Trump legal team could confirm that they had seen evidence for Powell’s allegations. Powell’s dismissal is a fall from grace for an attorney who rose to prominence in the conservative political universe as a lawyer for former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

state by 12,670 votes. Raffensperger pointed out the tallies of the Dominion voting machines matched the ballots’ results tabulated by hand. The only discrepancies in the vote were due to human error in uploading vote totals, and those errors were not enough to change the outcome of the election. Raffensperger also alleged that South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham had reached out to him and inappropriately requested that he find a way to reject valid ballots that favored Joe Biden. The Trump campaign announced that it would demand an additional machine recount to verify Georgia’s election results. THE IMPACT: Raffensperger said

THE IMPACT: Powell’s dismissal

is an effort by the Trump campaign to shore up its legal team in its lastditch attempt to get the judiciary to intervene and stop the election’s certification for Joe Biden. Trump’s legal team has been beset by setbacks as judges have not been swayed by their claims. In a further blow to their efforts, a Pennsylvania judge rejected the campaign’s attempt to block the Pennsylvania vote totals’ certification. Judge Matthew Brann wrote that “this Court has been presented with strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusations, unsupported by evidence.” Republican Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey called Judge Brann “a longtime conservative Republican whom I know to be a fair and unbiased jurist.” Toomey called on Trump to accept the outcome of the election and facilitate the presidential transition process”; Trump vowed to appeal the decision all the way to the Supreme Court.

Georgia Hand Recount Confirms Election Results THE PULSE: Georgia’s Attorney General Republican Brad Raffensperger announced the state results’ certification after a hand recount confirmed that Joe Biden won the

that the GOP is looking for scapegoats to explain their election loss. He said that while he voted for Trump and is disappointed in the outcome, he understands that it is time to move on. He encouraged the GOP to focus on winning the Georgia Senate elections and to recognize that Joe Biden has won the presidency. Raffensberger is among a growing list of Republican state officials who have called on Trump to concede.

Michigan Certification Saga THE PULSE: The Wayne County Board of Canvassers originally deadlocked 2-2 along partisan lines on whether to certify the county vote totals. The two Republicans opposed the totals’ certification due to discrepancies in ballots cast in Detroit’s absentee voting precincts. However, similar discrepancies were also present during the primary elections and in elections in other municipalities in Michigan, and it was not a cause of certification delays. After a harsh blowback, the two Republican members agreed to certify the election on condition that a future audit would address these voting irregularities. However, both Republicans later signed an affidavit that they only approved the election results under pressure and requested to withdraw their consent to certify


the results. In the ensuing uproar, the press revealed that President Trump had reached out to the two Republican board members before they signed the affidavit to withdraw their approval. President Trump also reached out to leading Michigan Republican state officials. He invited Republican Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey and Republican Speaker of the House Lee Chatfield to a White House meeting.

Representative Fred Upton said that “the voters have spoken” and that “it is over.”

Trump Directs GSA to Begin Transition

“That little pointele that makes all the difference”

THE PULSE: As we go to press, President Trump has directed the General Services Administration to begin the transition process and cooperate with the incoming Biden team. The president pledged to keep up the good fight and has yet to concede the race.

Secretary Pompeo Visits the West Bank THE PULSE: Secretary of

THE IMPACT: President Trump’s

act of reaching out to Michigan officials shows that he is committed to the narrative that widespread fraud has transpired. He is attempting to get states to hold off on certification, thereby allowing state legislatures to appoint pro-Trump delegates to the Electoral College. However, Trump received strong pushback for what many perceived to be inappropriate interference. After meeting with the president, Shirkey and Chatfield released a statement that said, “We have not yet been made aware of any information that would change the outcome of the election in Michigan, and as legislative leaders, we will follow the law and follow the normal process regarding Michigan’s electors, just as we have said throughout this election.” Michigan Republican

State Mike Pompeo paid a visit to the West Bank. The visit was historic as it was the first visit by an American secretary of state to areas considered occupied by the international community. Pompeo toured the town of Psagot and was presented with a specially branded Pompeo wine from the Psagot Winery. During his visit, Pompeo announced that all settlement goods imported to the U.S. will be marked as “Product of Israel” or “Made in Israel.” He issued a statement, saying, “We will continue to oppose those countries and international institutions [that] delegitimize or penalize Israel and Israeli producers in the West Bank through malicious measures that fail to recognize the reality on the ground.”

THE IMPACT: Pompeo’s visit was

considered private, and the State Department did not issue an official readout. However, Pompeo’s visit and his statements reinforced the strong ties that the Trump administration has fostered with Israel and highlighted the Trump administration’s strong support of Israel in the international arena.

A PROJECT OF:

A world of potential



“If words are the pen of the heart,” taught the Baal HaTanya, “then song is the pen of the soul.” Both give voice to what is inside man, but singing, specifically, comes from one’s very essence. It is such an integral expression of man’s inner workings that the first human to sing to Hashem was Adam Harishon himself, when he composed the first song, Mizmor Shir L’Yom HaShabbos. Is it any wonder, then, that Shabbos is a day in which man is enjoined to open his mouth and bring forth song? On Shabbos, the Yid takes the place of the six-winged malachim who, the Midrash says, use one wing per day to create music but are silenced on the seventh for lack of an additional wing.

On Shabbos, the six-winged creatures said to the Holy One, “Ribbono Shel Olam! We have no other wing [to make music for you on Shabbos].” The Holy One answered them, “I have a wing upon the Earth that sings before Me, as it says, ‘From the wings of the earth we heard zemiros*…’” – Tosafos on Sanhedrin 37b *Yeshayahu 24:16 We Yidden are that seventh wing. According to the Noam Elimelech, in the last kapitel of Tehillim, Dovid Hamelech writes six different hallelukahs that are dependent on musical instruments and correspond to the six days of the week. But the last pasuk says, “Kol haneshamah tehallel Kah, hallelukah.” Shabbos needs no musical accompaniment. On the contrary, the praises of Hashem come straight from the neshamah, drawn out through the singing of man. Moreover, the power of neginah is increased on Shabbos, as indicated by the double “hallel” in this pasuk, for the Yid receives a neshamah yeseirah on this most holy of days. How great, then, is our obligation to beautify the Shabbos with song! The Lubavitcher Rebbe once said that “a melody should be sung with the same care that one would employ in citing a Torah commentary learned from one’s teacher or rebbe.” To that end, let us delve into the zemiros and niggunim that grace our Shabbos tables so that we may better understand and appreciate them.

THE MONSEY VIEW / 169


TRADITIONAL SHABBOS ZEMIROS

The zemiros that have been passed down for hundreds of years and are sung at Shabbos seudos around the world are rich with mysteries of Torah. These zemiros were composed by talmidei chachamim and tzaddikim, with a depth of meaning behind each word. Here is a glimpse at the stories and ideas behind a few of the traditional songs:

AZAMER BISHVACHIN/ASADER LISEUDASA/BNEI HEICHALA Theme: Only the most holy of men can comprehend the deep kabbalistic secrets encoded within these zemiros. The layman, however, can appreciate that the zemer of AZAMER BISHVACHIN focuses on the holiness of the incoming Shabbos and the forces that rise up to prevent the Yid from experiencing the increased kedusha of the day and embracing Shabbos as it is meant to be: a time of praise and connection with the One Above. Despite their meddlesome attempts, the forces of evil are weakened and cry out when they realize that with the onset of Shabbos, Hashem is united with His beloved People. The zemer continues, relating the joy and blessings that are ushered in with Shabbos, and speaks of the ruchnius intentions behind the physical Shabbos meals. Finally, in a moment of intense closeness between man and his Creator, the Yid asks for blessings and protection, knowing that Composer: Shabbos is the source of blessing. The heilige Arizal, Rabbi Yitzchak Luria, zt”l ASADER LISEUDASA, sung before the day meal, tells of the singer who has “prepared About the Composer: the feast” of Shabbos day. Commentaries on the zemer relate that “preparation” involves By the time the young Yitzchak Luria was eight years old, the study of Torah, praising Hashem and he was already an accomplished scholar. Though he was good deeds. Only by preparing in such a born in Yerushalayim, he and his mother moved to Egypt manner is a Yid able to invite Atika Kadisha, after the passing of his father, where they lived with his the Holy Ancient One, to his table.

There he continued to grow ally, the Gemara relates that the Shechinah in wisdom, and at around the age of 15, it is said that he can be present only when there is simcha. authored his own commentary on the Gemara. By age Therefore, the Shabbos meal should be attended with great joy. 17, he began learning the Zohar, unlocking its secrets. Like the wine on which Kiddush is made Revered as the greatest kabbalist of all time, as well as — which is a prime physical indulgence that one of the most pious of men, the heilige Arizal opened can be elevated in the service of Hashem up worlds of Torah thought that otherwise would have — this zemer illustrates that a Yid seeks to been closed to even the most brilliant of men. Without turn the physical meal into one of spiritual the Kisvei Ari — his scholarly teachings that were redelight by engaging in Torah, to “adorn the corded mainly by his talmid Rav Chaim Vital — the Zohar table with precious mysteries.” BNEI HEICHALA speaks of the unique mowould be incomprehensible. ments of shalosh seudos and the power they Rabbi Yitzchak Luria was called “the Ari” even in his contain.

While the resh the late afternoon hours are a time of judgand yud stand for “Rabbi Yitzchak,” the alef stands for ment, on Shabbos “there is favor, but no “Eloki — G-dly.” He is the only sage to have received this anger.” It is an exhortation to the Yidden appellation, for he truly was “the G-dly Rabbi Yitzchak.” to take great joy in these moments, to come before Hashem in supplication and praise. Date of origin: During these moments of intense favor, the singer asks Hashem to banish — and ultiThe span of the Arizal’s life encompassed but a few mately destroy — all evil. short years — 38, to be exact. These zemiros were composed sometime during his lifetime, between the years 5294 and 5332 (1534–1572 C.E.).

TZAMAH NAFSHI Theme: This zemer acknowledges the greatness of the Creator and man’s inability to comprehend His wisdom. On the other hand, it speaks of the lowly man who has a yetzer within him that seeks to draw him ever downward. “How can one repent?” the question is asked. The zemer then answers the question: “If they but desired…” For man, the zemer repeats after each stanza, is “heart” and “flesh” — not one without the other. The Yid whose soul thirsts for Hashem will uplift his inclinations and proclaim: “Libi u’vesari yeranenu l’Kel chai!” The zemer then begs Hashem to remember the love He has for our patriarchs who were devoted to Composer: Him, and, in their merit, Rabbi Avraham ibn Ezra, zt”l, comto bring Moshiach and the monly referred to as “Ibn Ezra” Geulah, and to perform techiyas hameisim.

Interesting to note: Until the Chasam Sofer discovered this zemer and proclaimed it to be filled with mystical wisdom, the zemer wasn’t well known. It became the Chasam Sofer’s custom to recite it before the Shabbos evening seudah. In recent years, the niggun has become a popular kumzitz song.

his day. Even his “simple” poetry cannot be fully understood by anyone less than a tremendous talmid chacham, for every word contains a treasure trove of meaning.

Dates of origin: Sometime during the lifetime of the Ibn Ezra, between the years of 4852 and 4927 (1092–1161 C.E.).


DROR YIKRA Composer: Rabbi Donash ben Labrat, zt”l

About the Composer: Rabbi Donash Halevi ben Labrat was a talmid of Rav Saadia Gaon, as well as a poet and grammarian of great renown. He introduced a new style of Hebrew poetry, which was criticized by some of his contemporaries but ultimately praised for its beauty. Rabbi Donash ben Labrat is quoted by Rashi many times.

Date of origin: Sometime between 4680 and 4750 (920–990 C.E.), more specifically believed to be around the year 4721 (960 C.E.).

Theme: It was during a period of both intense sorrow and intense joy that Donash ben Labrat penned Dror Yikra. He had lost a son and married off a daughter within a short span of each other. Perhaps this influenced the emotional tone of the poem, which is a plea for protection for Klal Yisroel, for peace and for the Geulah. It is also one in which he begs Hashem to “smash my foes with wrathful anger.” Ultimately, Dror Yikra is a song of freedom, for that is what “dror” means. Freedom from oppression is elaborated upon extensively in the poem, but the final stanzas of the zemer conclude with the prayer that our mouths be filled with joyful song — an expression of freedom that comes only when the Yidden are able to live fully in servitude to the Bashefer. To that end, Rabbi Donash ben Labrat exhorts the Yidden, “Let your soul know Torah, then it will be a crown on your head. Observe the mitzvos of your Holy One. Observe your Shabbos.” Truly, there is no greater freedom than that which a Yid finds in observing the mitzvos. THE AUTHOR’S SIGNATURE: Four times within Dror Yikra the name “Donash” is spelled out; only the middle stanzas do not spell his name. Likewise, every word in every stanza, aside from a solitary word in the middle, ends with the same Hebrew letter. INTERESTING THOUGHT: It is said that the poem was dedicated to the author’s two beloved children mentioned above, the son and the daughter, which may be hinted to in the opening stanza with the words “l’ven im bas.”

YIDDISH & CONTEMPORARY NIGGUNIM

Though not traditional zemiros that are typically found in a siddur, Yiddish niggunim often make their appearance at the Shabbos seudah due to the emotional and inspiring words they frequently contain. Here’s the story of one moving niggun:

GALUS, GALUS Young Yitzchak Isaac Taub was but a young boy when he was orphaned of his father and needed to support his family by shepherding a flock of animals. His soul, however, was lofty, and like Dovid Hamelech, he spent his days in the fields singing to Hashem. Rabbi Aryeh Leib Sarah’s*, a tzaddik who was held in high esteem by the Baal Shem Tov himself, sensed that there was hidden kedushah deep in the Hungarian forest. He traveled from Russia and sought out the boy, whereupon he found him singing a haunting niggun:

Composer: The Kaliver Rebbe, Rabbi Yitzchak Isaac Taub, zt”l, also known as “The Sweet Singer of Yisroel”

Date of origin: Sometime during the Kaliver Rebbe’s early years; his lifetime spanned the years 5511 to 5581 (1751–1821).

Galus, galus vi grois bist du! Shechinah Hakedoisha, vi veit bist du! Ven dos galus valt klener geven Valt di Shechinah nenter geven… ...Galus, galus, ver avek genemen? Lomir zich shoin baide tzuzamen kimen!

Galus, galus how vast you are! Shechinah Hakedosha, how far you are! If this galus were smaller The Shechinah would be closer Galus, galus, who will take you away? Let us come together already!

When Rabbi Aryeh Leib Sarah’s asked the boy where he had learned the niggun, Yitzchak Isaac answered that everyone in the area knew the tune; however, instead of singing about the Shechinah being so far away and the galus being so very long, the area’s shepherds sang about the forest being so vast and a loved one being distant. At a tender young age, the future Kaliver Rebbe had felt the hidden sparks of holiness in a non-Jewish niggun and “kashered” it, much the same way in which other rebbes had collected marching niggunim from non-Jewish sources. Rabbi Aryeh Leib Sarah’s understood that this child was the source of kedusha that he was seeking, and he approached Yitzchak Leib’s mother and convinced her to allow him to leave home to learn under the Nikolsburger Rebbe, Rebbe Shmuel Shmelke Horowitz. The lad grew in Torah and yiras Shamayim and eventually was appointed the Kaliver Rebbe. Even when he was Rebbe, the Kaliver could be found strolling through pastures, hunting down new niggunim that had been given to the shepherds. After he learned and paid for each niggun, the non-Jewish shepherds would promptly forget the tunes, as if they had never known them in the first place… *Rabbi Aryeh Leib Sarah’s name is notable due to its unusual possessive nature. He wanted to be called in a manner that was reflective of his mother, giving her credit for everything he was. He was Sarah’s; he was his chashuve mother’s child.

SKULENER RENDITION OF LECHA DODI Composer: The Alter Skulener Rebbe, Rabbi Eliezer Zusia Portugal, zt”l

Date of origin: 1959

For years, the Lecha Dodi heard in the hallowed walls of the Skulener shul was a slow, very moving niggun. Then came the post-war period when the Rebbe was taken captive by the communists and imprisoned in a Romanian dungeon where tefillah was expressly prohibited. Not davening was not an option for the Rebbe. With great mesirus nefesh he behaved uncompromisingly as a Yid despite the abuse he suffered. One Shabbos, when he’d begun Kabbalas Shabbos, a guard noticed that he was engaged in prayer, and knowing that he was powerless to prevent the rebbe from davening, decided that, at the very least, he had to rush him along. “Hurry, hurry!” he commanded the Rebbe, likely fearing for his own life should the Rebbe be caught praying under his watch… At that moment, the Rebbe began a new, faster rendition of Lecha Dodi — the rendition that continues to this day.

BEN ZION SHENKER’S RENDITION OF TEHILLIM 23, MIZMOR L’DOVID Reb Ben Zion Shenker, the famous composer, was only a bachur when the tune for the famous rendition of Mizmor L’Dovid that we all know and love Composer: came to him. The young Ben Zion had been in Eretz Yisroel and decided to visit his uncle Reb Ben Zion Shenker in Haifa for Shabbos. He wasn’t feeling well, however, and wasn’t up to eating shalosh seudos in shul, as he would normally have done. As he was eating the seuDate of origin: dah in his uncle’s home, the niggun simply came to him. He repeated it over and 1953 over again so that he wouldn’t forget it before he was able to record the notes. As soon as Shabbos ended, he took a sheet of plain paper and drew lines to hold the musical notes, which he then wrote down. Ben Zion Shenker spent his career recording not only his own compositions, but also taking great care to preserve those of his chassidus, Modzitz. The rebbes of Modzitz and Skulen were two of the only rebbes who composed their own niggunim, rather than collecting and “kashering” songs in the manner of the Kaliver or having them written by lay composers. In Modzitz, singing was regarded as a powerful force of tefillah. Rabbi Yisroel Taub, the first Rebbe of Modzitz, commented on Tehillim (106:44), “He saw their suffering when he heard their singing,” saying that the Yidden were helped specifically through Miriam’s act of preparing drums for Shiras Hayam before they even left Mitzrayim. The faith of just knowing that one would sing when the redemption was nigh was an act of emunah, which set in motion the redemption. “From this we can learn that any Jew who is in trouble, Heaven forbid, and sings a song about future salvation, will receive help from the Holy One, Blessed Be He.”

WORDLESS NIGGUNIM Chabad chassidus is unique in the fact that the Baal HaTanya didn’t print Shabbos zemiros in his siddur, aside from those composed by the Arizal (discussed above). He wanted the chassidim to sing wordless niggunim, which bring a person to a higher level than words can ascend. Similarly, the Skulener Rebbe would repeat certain zemiros without the words after first singing them with the words. He explained that singing a melody without words allows one’s feelings to soar on the wings of a niggun, bringing them to the loftiest spheres.

Calendars often list two zmanim for Shabbos: one, typically unlabeled, and another ending later titled “Rabbeinu Taam.” It’s a misnomer, though. While Rabbeinu Taam’s Shabbos indeed ends later, as listed, it also begins later, and the time listed as the beginning of Shabbos on those calendars can be so early that Rabbeinu Taam would have considered it forbidden to start Shabbos so early! Today, the difference is academic. Every Jewish community starts Shabbos with sundown, but recalling a time when that was not so and how it came to be is important. Shabbos is a day of love. Klal Yisroel demonstrates its love for Hashem through Shabbos observance, and, Shabbos also speaks of Hashem’s love for His world. That’s why, when yom tov coincides with Shabbos, we add the word “b’ahavah” to prayers throughout the day. The word “ahavah” covers all affections, from that which motivates a soldier to sacrifice himself for his country to the one-sided liking a diner has for spaghetti. All of them share a common point: the one loving is happy the loved one exists. He wants the loved one to exist. That being the case, Creation was the greatest act of love ever, and Shabbos commemorates it. In studying the history of opinions regarding the timing of Shabbos, we also uncover a third love to which Shabbos testifies: the love Yidden have for each other. For that reason, those opinions are worth exploring.

The sun descends every Friday whether the kugel is ready, the challah is baked, and even if traffic is stopped. It refuses to give us even a few extra minutes. But it was not always so. Many righteous Yidden of the past never raced against the sun on Friday, and worked even long after it had set. How that could be, and why it is no longer so, requires some explanation. Shabbos begins at night. There was, after all, erev and then boker — evening and then morning. Night, however, is a fluid concept. English labels the degrees of darkness one might

call night Astronomical, Nautical, and Civil Twilight, but Aramaic lacks equivalent terms. Thus, the Gemara describes when Shabbos begins using mil. There is day. There is night. There is bein hashmashos in between, which might be either but is considered night to be safe. Rabbi Yehudah explains

hashmashos is the 13.5 minutes preceding it, as Maseches Shabbos says. His opinion creates a mystery, however. If sunset directly precedes bein hashmashos, “sunset” must fall 58.5 minutes after the sun goes down. This is possible because, in this reckoning, the sun disappearing beneath the horizon is

After the war, refugees from different European cities came to the United States, and for the first time, Americans witnessed faithful Yidden beginning Shabbos after sundown and in no uniform way. in Pesachim that bein hashmashos lasts four mil, roughly 72 minutes, after sundown. In Maseches Shabbos, he shortens bein hashmashos to three-quarters of a mil, about 13.5 minutes. Commentators have explained the contradiction in several ways. The most familiar psak holds that Shabbos begins according to what it says in Maseches Shabbos. Bein hashmashos follows sunset, lasts 13.5 minutes, then night falls. This is the opinion of the Biur HaGra, the Maharal, and the Baal HaTanya in his siddur. Several of the Ge’onim wrote similarly. Cairo and many Sefardic communities kept Shabbos according to this tradition for centuries. Baghdad, like Germany, started Shabbos at sundown, but ended it by observing the stars, another method given in the Gemara. For most Yidden in Holland, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary and Ukraine, however, Shabbos began and ended according to Rabbeinu Tam. Rabbeinu Tam addresses the differences between Maseches Shabbos and Pesachim by reconciling them. Nightfall, he offers, comes 72 minutes after sunset as in Pesachim. Bein

only the first of two sunsets. Bein hashmashos follows the second, an event explained by one of the Gemara’s models of the universe. In Pesachim 94b, the Greek scientists suggest that the sun travels over the earth during the day and under it at night. Jewish scientists disagree, contending that the sky is a dome. Day is caused by the sun traveling east to west within it. At evening, the sun slips under the lip of the opaque dome and arcs

backward over it, arriving back in the east come morning. The second sunset is when the sun goes beneath the dome’s lip. Bein hashmashos is the time it takes the sun to travel beneath the dome’s edge. Once the sun makes it to the other side, it is officially night. By the time of the Rishonim, the Greek view was assumed, and the Rambam fully endorses it in Moreh Nevuchim and Mishnah Torah. While the Rishonim didn’t agree with the physical explanation of Rabbeinu Tam’s schedule, most, nevertheless, accept the timing itself — and the Shulchan Aruch rules that Shabbos begins and ends according to Rabbeinu Tam.

RABBEINU TAM IN AMERICA While many Europeans accepted the zmanim of Rabbeinu Tam, Americans never did. Jews had lived in America for centuries, but rabbanim were rare until Lithuanians began to fill America’s rabbinical posts in the late nineteenth century. By the twentieth century, American Jews were mostly familiar with the opinion of the Vilna Gaon. The struggle for Shabbos observance cen-

tered on convincing them to follow it. Post-Holocaust immigration complicated matters. Every European city had scheduled Shabbos according to its own calculations. After the war, refugees from each came to the United States, and for the first time, Americans wit-

While the Vilna Gaon’s Shabbos begins with an obvious sign, Rabbeinu Tam’s requires the calculation of a mil. Most recognize the mil as eighteen minutes long, but calculations vary greatly. The different definitions of mil meant Yidden in America were suddenly accepting Shabbos up to two hours apart! Understandably, this caused confusion. In 1952, the Satmar Rebbe, Rav Aharon Kotler and 47 other Rabbanim agreed to a compromise: America would adopt a chumrah of the Mishnah Berurah. Shabbos would start at sunset but end according to Rabbeinu Tam, calculated with an eighteen minute mil. This compromise, however, would sacrifice several minhagim. A chumrah of the Ramban, that any tosfos Shabbos — including candle lighting — must follow a visible sunset, would necessarily be set aside. A more widespread minhag would have to end, too. Most Ashkenazim had accepted a separate shittah of Rabbeinu Tam to light Shabbos candles after plag Mincha. A woman who lit earlier had to snuff out her candles and light again, or her lighting did not count. Plag Mincha of Rabbeinu Tam, however, is sec-

Today Yidden begin Shabbos according to a mathematical calculation of when sundown is. Few, if any, contemporary poskim permit someone to bring in Shabbos according to Rabbeinu Tam, even in an emergency. Rabbeinu Tam’s time is seen as an end-of-Shabbos chumrah even by those who use it to calculate other time-bound mitzvos, and outside of areas with a large chassidish population, few end Shabbos according to Rabbeinu Tam’s shittah. Conversely, nobody ends Shabbos 13.5 minutes after sunset, either. The custom of most

places in America is to end Shabbos when three stars would appear, according to astronomy and mathematics. At some points in the year, this time approaches certain calculations of Rabbeinu Tam’s time. So if the compromise failed, why do Rabbeinu Tam communities still observe it? Faithful Yidden understand differing opinions. Ashkenazim can eat meat that Sefardim consider treif. Ashkenazi understanding of flavor transfers renders some Sefardic meals problematic. There are hundreds of other examples. Nobody is bothered. The compromise, however, was not made for faithful Jews. It was made for the sake of those on the edge or lost completely. Calls for Shabbos observance are much harder if Shabbos seems arbitrary, and those unfamiliar with the halachic process could confuse halachic subtleties with hypocrisy. If Rabbeinu Tam communities lose some preparation time, they also earn a special merit. True, they light candles earlier than their ancestors would have allowed; but when they light, they are not just lighting Shabbos candles anymore. They are also leaving a light on for Jews who desperately need to find a way home.

If we close our eyes and let our breathing slow down, we can feel it: the pulse of the universe. There’s a heartbeat and a rhythm — a meaning and a purpose — to this perfect world. On Erev Shabbos Kodesh we feel time slowing down from a frantic rush to a soothing hum. It’s as if the Clockmaker Himself is rewinding the clock and adjusting its pace. If we allow ourselves, we can experience the holiness of the day through the preparations leading up to its arrival. Like Rifky, a”h, did.

208 / THE MONSEY VIEW / November 25, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

While most of mankind still huddled under their blankets, savoring those final few hours of sweet slumber, Rifky would toss hers aside. Because on Friday mornings there was something far more enticing coaxing her to start her day: the opportunity to spend some quiet hours conversing with the Eibishter as she prepared a feast in His honor. Shabbos was coming. The day the Shechinah spends with Klal Yisroel. And Rifky was up bright and early, whispering her techinos as she prepared her Shabbos meals.

ROYAL GRACE

When COVID-19 swept through our community, it took our sweetest and brightest. Rifky Deutsch (nee Werzberger), a”h, was one of our tragic losses. Admired and adored by all who knew her, Rifky’s joy in living was surpassed only by her joy in serving Hashem. She was the embodiment of simchas hachaim, tznius, generosity and perpetual growth. But there was a secret that few knew, a simple but powerful commitment she upheld. For 25 years, until she was in a COVID-induced coma, Rifky had not missed even one week of taking challah — not when she married off, nor when she was feeling ill. Not even when she gave birth to either of her sets of twins! Baking challah was precious to her, and she genuinely reveled in the opportunity to infuse her home with the blessings that accompany this special mitzvah.


November 25, 2020 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 209 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


PRIVATE SPACE A couple of years ago, on a teleconference line (recorded for posterity, b’hashgacha pratis), Rifky regaled her listeners with a vivid depiction of what her Erev Shabbos was like. Rifky’s story began many years ago, in a season heavy with “erevs.” Moved by how the preparations enveloped her home in an exalted atmosphere, she committed to creating this experience every week. From then on, she never failed to bake challah on Erev Shabbos. Ever.

WHISPERS TO HASHEM Her greatness wasn’t just that she baked challah, but rather how she did it… and why she did it. Once she recognized the privilege she was granted — the opportunity to convene with Hashem for however long she chose — she decided to make the most of it. Slowly, her Friday mornings began earlier and earlier so she could accomplish more in her day and be ready for Shabbos by chatzos. She’d start in the wee hours, motivated purely by the opportunity to spend time in that exalted space. And with her own poetic techinos for the Shechinah on her lips, she’d begin preparing for the heilige day. After she’d complete her Shabbos preparations — the food freshly cooked; the cakes, pies and muffins lining her counters; the blech set and her Shabbos table bedecked for royalty — she would head to her parents’ home where she’d assist with Shabbos prep, all the while relishing the opportunity to fulfill the mitzvah of kibbud av v’em.

SHABBOS, MY SHABBOS

The message Rifky so wished every Yiddish woman would know was that the kedusha of Shabbos permeates everything we do; it’s in the preparation and in the food itself. She insisted that not only was the flavor of her Shabbos food divine — and those who were privileged to taste it wholeheartedly agreed — but more than that: She appreciated that the food, prepared with so much thought, heart and purity, was imbued with the kedusha and ko’ach of Shabbos. Rifky bemoaned

210 / THE MONSEY VIEW / November 25, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

the attitude of an “off Shabbos” and the delight in not needing to prepare for the big day. Instead, she urged us women to recognize that preparing for Shabbos isn’t a chore, but a privilege. And that is the secret she wants us all to know: We each have the opportunity to connect to that holiness — should we choose to do so. Hearing her describe the joy and beauty, we can’t help but desire that connection too.

THE CHALLAH LADY

A local rebbetzin, who was a childhood friend of Rifky’s, recently remarked that when she saw Rifky she was humbled and inspired. For years, she hadn’t realized she was in the presence of greatness. Rifky’s sweet personality ensured that her spiritual ascent was as subtle as it was steady — like the woman herself. When asked about her amazingly inspiring Fridays and overall impressive transformation, she was quick to point out that it hadn’t happened overnight; it was always one commitment that inspired the next, as if improvement and growth were inevitable. And perhaps they were.


r a t i Geussonyss L for Bo BY T

Rifky made no secret of the catalyst, the initial inspiration that struck her as a young 27-year-old mother to be mafrish challah every single erev Shabbos: Challah is roshei teivos “chutz l’derech hateva.”

KALLAH CHALLAH

With Rifky’s passing leaving a void in our hearts and the desire to connect to her purity and energy, her dear friend, the indefatigable Blimie Brunner, conceived a beautiful and fitting tribute that would continue to inspire while collecting zechusim l’ilui nishmasah. Rifky’s life force was her challah baking. She recognized the incredible opportunity this mitzvah provides. To that end, the Ohel Rifka Challah Gmach was founded, offering a unique service: kallah challah. On her wedding day, when a kallah has such a tremendous ko’ach, allowing her to be mafrish challah provides her

RIFKY’S ETERNAL CHALLAH

One August day, Rifky traveled back home to the city from the mountains to attend a family aufruf. She entered her home, stuffy with summer heat, planning to get to work preparing food for the simcha. On top of the fridge, she noticed a bag of forgotten challah. Rifky was ready to dispose of the bag, expecting it to contain some moldy remains. Only there wasn’t a bit of mold in sight! The challah looked and smelled as fresh as the day it had been baked. Torn between rational expectations and accepting the chutz m’derech hateva phenomenon she was witnessing, Rifky opted to embrace the miracle — and use the challah for the chicken stuffing she was preparing for the aufruf. Should we attempt to comprehend the miraculous, or humbly accept that there are things out of our realm of understanding? Perhaps her purity, sincerity and devotion elevated her to a plane where she merited the miraculous, but Rifky would have laughed at the notion. She was “normal,” she’d insist. And she was. Only she wasn’t. May Rifka Yocheved, a”h, bas R’ Benzion HaLevi, n”y, be a meiletz yosher for all of Klal Yisroel.

with an additional conduit for her precious tefillos! The simple premise, promoted by the incredible Mrs. Suri Jaroslowitz, quickly evolved into a full-functioning gemach. The process is rather simple. A volunteer brings dough to the kallah at the address and time specified. The kallah makes the bracha, and the volunteer takes the dough back home. Some of the amazing volunteers make a seudah challah or bilkelech for the yichud room with the dough, or breakfast rolls for the following morning, but those are absolutely extras. The goal is simply to provide the kallah with the awesome opportunity to perform this mitzvah on her wedding day. As one volunteer gushed, “Thank you for the zechus! I’m on a high! It was absolutely beautiful connecting with a kallah (who was a stranger — until I arrived with my dough). I davened for her, and she will do the same for me. I can’t begin to express the emotions I’m experiencing right now!” A kallah’s mother shared, “You have no idea what the

212 / THE MONSEY VIEW / November 25, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

kallah challah did to our home! It shifted the focus of the day from hectic wedding prep and concern over aesthetics... to suddenly feeling that the day was a heilige day. The challah dough transformed the atmosphere.”

NOT ASKING FOR DIAMONDS The Ohel Rifka Challah Gmach operates through generous volunteers inspired to be part of this powerful movement. As we expand into more communities, we’re eager to get the word out — both so that our volunteer group should grow (there’s no commitment when you join the group!), and even more importantly, so that more kallahs become aware of this opportunity and don’t pass up the chance to be mafrish challah on their wedding day — for free. If you’re inspired to volunteer or would like to create a chapter in your community, we’d be thrilled to get you started! All her life, Rifky gave generously and graciously. The challah gemach is our opportunity to reciprocate. Volunteers and kallahs can contact Ohel Rifka Challah Gmach at 929-257-1333, kallahchallah@ gmail.com and kallahchallah. com. ‫לע"נ רבקה יוכבד ע"ה‬ ‫בת בנציון הלוי נ"י‬

I even tried acupuncture at one point but it didn’t help. At one point I got other pains as well such as stomach pain, back pain and chronic fatigue. I would fall asleep at shiur every day. One day someone told me that I should try the sarno method since it can really help me. It actually helped me tremendously! Within a few days I got rid of my stomach pains and back pains and fatigue. A short while later I was able to get rid of my headaches too. I am off pills today and have my life back after learning the sarno method.

Get Your Flu Shot This Fall – It’s Important! Getting vaccinated for the flu this fall is more important than ever. Not only will the flu shot help keep you and your family healthy, it can help reduce the strain on our already overextended healthcare system; keeping hospital beds and other medical resources available for people affected by coronavirus disease (COVID-19). This is no ordinary flu season; it’s a flu season amid a pandemic. With two dangerous viruses going around at once, it’s imperative that we protect our community by getting the vaccine we already have: the flu vaccine. While a flu shot won’t protect you against COVID-19, it offers many other benefits. Flu vaccines have been shown to reduce the risk of flu illness, hospitalization and even death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there’s no evidence that a flu vaccination increases your risk of getting sick from a coronavirus, like the one that causes COVID-19. Those at high risk for flu complications include young children, pregnant women, people ages 65 or older and individuals with certain chronic health conditions. Anyone who is six months or older should get a yearly flu vaccine. The CDC recommends getting vaccinated in September or October, but a flu shot anytime during flu season can help protect you. “Getting the whole family vaccinated against the flu is very important this year, especially for young children.” Says Dr. Chana Cook, Pediatrician at Monsey Health Center. “Since children are often asymptomatic when carrying COVID-19, any symptoms they may display can likely be influenza. Getting them immunized early can curtail their chances of getting sick.” If you have a child or children that are not insured they may be covered under Vaccine For Children (VCF). Similarly, Seniors enrolled in Medicare can have their vaccine administered at no cost, as Medicare Part B covers one flu shot per flu season, per beneficiary. “Coming in to get your flu shot is safe and easy.” Says Dr. Cook. “Here at Monsey Health Center we are exercising every precaution to make the building COVID free and safe for all our patients, by keeping all COVID testing outside our facility, frequently disinfecting all patient rooms and waiting rooms, requiring all individuals age 2 and over to wear a mask when entering the building and having staff wear full personal protective equipment (PPE).” What is the difference betWeen flu and cOVid-19? Influenza (flu) and COVID-19 are both contagious respiratory illnesses, but they are caused by different viruses. COVID-19 is caused by infection with a new coronavirus called SARS-CoV-2 and flu is caused by infection with influenza viruses. Because symptoms of flu and COVID-19 are similar, it may be hard to tell the difference between them based on symptoms alone. Testing may be needed to confirm diagnosis. It is possible to have the flu and COVID-19 at the same time. Health experts are still studying how common this can be. While it’s not possible to say with certainty what will happen this fall and winter, CDC believes it’s likely that flu viruses and the virus that causes COVID-19 will both be spreading. CDC has developed a test that will check for A and B type seasonal flu viruses and SARS CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Testing for both viruses at the same time will give public health officials important information about how flu and COVID-19 are spreading and what preventative steps should be taken. “At Monsey Health Center, we have set up a separate testing center to test for both COVID-19 and the flu. We have even added a heated waiting unit now that the weather is turning colder.” Dr. Cook assures the public that, “Patients can feel safe knowing that testing is quick and easy. We have rapid results as well as sending out specimens for more extensive overnight testing. We also do blood draws to test for antibodies. Only those who have tested negative for COVID-19 are allowed into the main building for routine care and sick visits. Parents can rest assured that our Pediatric department is safe and COVID free. We have been very busy seeing all of our newborn patients as well as our bigger kids. We want to ensure that all of our families are safe and healthy through this extraordinary winter.” Please protect yourself, your family and your community by getting your flu shot this fall. Remember to follow all public safety guidelines by washing your hands frequently, practicing social distancing and remember to wear a mask when out in public, especially where social distance guidelines cannot be easily followed. To make an appointment to get your flu shot, or flu and COVID testing, call Monsey Health Center at 845-352-6800.


WINE VS. GRAPE JUICE

Grape juice is produced using a special method that stops the fermentation process, preventing the juice from turning into wine. The result: a nonalcoholic, fruity grape beverage, suitable for Kiddush, Havdalah, the Arba Kosos and abundant drinking pleasure.

Whereas wine is alcoholic, grape juice does not contain alcohol. You might think grape juice is more “natural.” But, in fact, wine is the naturally obtained grape-derived drink, while grape juice is achieved only with human intervention. The delicate process of creating grape juice requires care in the way the grapes are crushed, which preservatives are used, and how the juice is bottled. No foreign substance that could cause it to ferment may enter. Making grape juice isn’t that simple, after all!

GRAPE JUICE IN HALACHAH Since grape juice would turn to wine if it were left to ferment, grape juice is placed in a similar category to wine, and the bracha Borei Pri Hagafen is recited. It is a mitzvah min hamuvchar to use wine that has aged 40 days; still, grape juice is generally considered perfectly acceptable for Kiddush and other mitzvos that involve wine.

UNCORK THE HEALTH BENEFITS You know it’s delicious, and it comes in handy for Kiddush, but did you know that grape juice is also good for your health? Concord grape juice is recognized for providing similar heart benefits to those of red wine — but without the alcohol. It’s rich in antioxidants, including resveratrol and flavonoids. Grape juice may be linked with: • Reduced risk of blood clots • Maintaining healthy blood pressure • Decreased low-density lipoprotein (LDL, or “bad” cholesterol)

218 / THE MONSEY VIEW

BRIGHT BURGUNDY, RUBY RED, PERFECTLY PURPLE How does grape juice get its deep red color if the bottles are labeled, “No coloring added”? The pigment in the skin of some red grapes accords the juice its rich color. Special care during the pulping and juicing process allows the skin to diffuse its coloring into the liquid.

THAT “MUST” BE HOMEMADE! If you’re someone who appreciates serving fully home-produced foods down to the Kiddush wine, you probably know what “must” is. Freshly squeezed grape juice that contains 7% to 23% pulp, skins, seeds and stems is commonly known as “must,” and it’s generally homemade.

KEDEM: LEADING BRAND OF KOSHER GRAPE JUICE You can find it on nearly every Shabbos table. It is sweet and tart, with a velvety touch to the tongue, and a deep shade of purple. Kedem Concord Grape Juice: enjoyed by those who want to skip on alcoholic wines — and by kids, of course!

FIRST SIPS Since it’s such a staple in most Yiddishe homes, you might be surprised to hear that the idea of introducing non-alcoholic “wine” was nearly nixed by Kedem’s founding vendors… Reb Yonah Herzog transported the family’s pre-war winemaking tradition to American shores. In the late 1950s, he proposed the idea of a new line: alcohol-free grape juice. Reb Yonah’s sons were unconvinced, certain that grape juice would reduce wine sales and ultimately hurt the business. As a cheaper item than wine, grape juice would cause consumers to curtail their wine purchases and opt for the cheaper grape juice — or so they thought. The exact opposite occurred. People who wanted wine continued buying it — and people who couldn’t drink wine were now downing grape juice! Indeed, today, Kedem is the leading brand in the grape juice industry worldwide.

1.5-LITER GLASS BOTTLE: The only size bottle that isn’t mevushal; all other Kedem grape juices are pasteurized. 64-OUNCE BOTTLE: The most popular choice. 32 COUNTRIES: Kedem exports grape juice globally and across the USA. BLUSH: A great example of Kedem’s trademark customer relations! With the arba kosos of Seder night in mind, consumers asked for a lighter version of their popular grape juice — but still in red. This led to the making of a new product less than a decade ago. A crowd-pleaser, Kedem Blush Concord is far more popular than was anticipated. IN QUOTE: “I wouldn’t give my hashgacha, only to people who don’t need hashgacha…” — the Tzehlemer Rav, Rav Levi Yitzchok Grunwald, zt”l, in regard to Reb Yonah Herzog, whom the Rav held in high regard. With his faithful supervision, and heartfelt tefillos for siyata d’Shmaya, the Tzehlemer Rav’s hechsher boosted the popularity of Herzog’s products in those early years.

WHERE

WHAT

WHEN

Grown in upstate New York, the grapes are crushed and processed in the winery in Marlboro, NY.

The most popular variety, Kedem Concord Grape Juice is made from concord grapes.

Harvest begins in late August and carries through November.

The grape juice is transported in large refrigerated tankers to Kedem headquarters in Bayonne, NJ, where it is bottled.

It is the juiciness of these special grapes that creates the delectable flavor that cannot be duplicated by grapes grown elsewhere. Kedem carries some 30 to 40 varieties of grape juice, including several size bottles. Your average retailer stocks at least one dozen. There’s concord, regular, blush, light, sparkling, fresh, peachflavored, organic, bio-dynamic... and the list goes on.

The grape juice is produced during the harvest season and is stored in large refrigerated tanks to be bottled as needed. This allows consumers to receive freshly bottled grape juice all year round.

Sending a son from our small village to the big city is not simple. But it’s worth it! He’ll be learning in a yeshivah!

Is everything ready? Food? Clothing? I also prepared a bundle of cash for him.

If only the parents of these boys could send them to yeshivah… I’m so grateful I can afford it.

Good, so you can load the case onto the carriage outside.

Oy, oy, oy...

Oh, you!

You must hear me out!

220 / THE MONSEY VIEW


Must?!

Is?

Is dangerous! Very dangerous! There are bad people there! They can hurt your son! Rob him!

If so, my son won’t travel alone! I’ll go along with him and not leave him even for a minute.

Your son’s journey is — Really?

Let’s go, son! We’re leaving.

Father?

Where’s the money you prepared for me?

The money? What do you need it for?

Whatever you need — just ask me for it! I’ll be here with you the entire way…

WHAT DOES THIS TELL US? Yaakov davened that Hashem be with him — that He protect him on his journey, that he should return in peace to his father’s home, and also that he should have parnassah. Hashem answered him: “I am with you, and I will watch over you… and I will return you to the land.” But He didn’t give him any promises in regard to parnassah. Why’s that? Because Hashem already promised Yaakov that He would be with him and protect him throughout the journey. When your father is with you, you can ask him for anything you need. Yaakov Avinu didn’t need a promise for parnassah; he didn’t need a bundle of cash for the way. Hashem was with him on his journey and could give him anything he needed. (The Dubno Maggid)
