Dear Neighbor, All these years you've had a Parnosoh, and now for the first time in your life, you're no longer employed. You're embarrassed and don't know where to turn. Tomche Shabbos is no longer limited to what we're best known for, a package dropped off at the door on Thursday nights. In fact, food distribution is no longer a majority of our assistance to the community. We have an active job placement division that knows of various job openings, one of which may be right for you. We also have an emergency fund that helps with medical bills, utility shut offs, chassunahs, helping people who can't make ends meet, and other extenuating circumstances. I urge you to contact me as soon as possible so that we can hold a confidential conversation. I don't know who you are, but I'm waiting for your call.

SUPPERS TO THE RESCUE (Re: Food Section) This is a long overdue thank you for your simple and delicious recipes, especially the most recent features on one-pan meals and chicken cutlet dinners. The honey-mustard salmon supper recipe (Issue 270) was so good and so simple, and it got rave reviews from my husband! (That’s a real compliment, coming from a picky, only-likes-this-or-that eater.) I’m trying out one new chicken cutlet recipe per week, and so far, they have all been winner dinners! The best part is that most of the recipes you include call for basic pantry staples that I always have at home. I also want to thank you for your exciting and original contests, both for adults and kids of all ages. I was really hoping to participate in the early bedtime contest, but unfortunately, it was impossible for me to make it to bed by 10:45. (I did try, though! My sister even placed reminder calls that first week to encourage me...) Keep up the fantastic work! With appreciation, The Vogel Family
THE MOST IMPORTANT LESSONS (Re: Students at the Stove, Issue 275) I’d like to bring awareness to readers in regard to the cooking contest. Women may not realize that in the process of teaching our daughters how to cook, we also need to teach them the relevant halachos, such as how to check onions, beans, etc. Thank you so much for the contest. We’re really enjoying it. Goldie S.
CLARIFYING THE COOKING CONTEST (Re: Students at the Stove, Issue 275) We have three girls in the house willing to help out with Shabbos food. Do they each have to prepare the foods you assign? Also, if we won’t be home one of the weeks in which the program runs, is it still

Gebentcht With Girls SHIFRA FIDDLE RESPONDS: You may prepare any other Shabbos food, as long as each participant cooks six Shabbos dishes over the course of the program. As for your second question, if a participant misses a week, she can make up for it by cooking two dishes another week.
WRAP IT HEALTHILY (Re: Students at the Stove, Issue 275) The cover page to your cooking contest shows a picture of a foil-
110 / THE MONSEY VIEW / December 2, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
wrapped roll cooking in the cholent pot. Aluminum foil, in general, is not the healthiest thing to use with food, but to have it cooking all Shabbos and emitting unhealthy particles into the cholent is really not a good idea. Kol tuv, G.K.
WHEN PRESSED FOR TIME (Re: Cutlets in My Kitchen, Issue 273) Another good idea for those times when we’re faced with frozen cutlets too close to suppertime is to cut
the chicken into really small pieces (kitchen shears are great for this) and cook or saute it with your favorite seasonings and add-ons. It’s an excellent method for last-minute preparation, since small pieces defrost instantly and need minimal cooking time. Quick Cook

Perhaps this idea might help: Whenever my daughter brings home a sticker that is not appropriate, I have an entire container of permanent markers of all colors prepared just for this purpose. We color the sticker to transform it into a tznius’dig version, and everyone is happy. Of course, if something is entirely inappropriate, we discuss it with our daughter and get rid of it.

YOUR VOICE WELL-TAB TO THE RESCUE When my husband experienced severe COVID-19 symptoms this fall, the possibility of being admitted to a hospital scared him. Although conditions have drastically improved since the first wave back in March, patients are still anxious about being left all alone. Imagine how surprised I was, when in the ambulance on the way to the hospital I was presented with a pair of tablets that were programmed to be able to communicate with each other 24/7. One unit was to be clamped to the side of the hospital bed, and one was to be clamped somewhere at home. This enabled us to maintain contact with each other, bringing reassurance to the entire family. I marveled at the way technology could be used for such a wonderful cause. The Hatzoloh member told me that these tablets were made possible by an organization called Well-Tab, established to create a most necessary contact between patient and family when no hospital visitation is allowed. This marvelous equipment allowed us to hear the doctor’s report as he made his daily rounds, and for my husband to have many virtual “visitors” throughout his fifteen-day stay at the hospital. My husband could “partake” in yom tov seudos and in a simchas beis hasho’evah, view singing grandchildren, and even Birchas Kohanim! The service that Well-Tab provides around the clock is unbelievable. Not all hospital personnel are comfortable with the screens, and one night we were in touch with the organization for hours until they were able to convince the nurse on duty to plug the unit back into the wall before power failed. Yes, the time was 4:30 a.m., and the volunteer staff at Well-Tab was on duty! Whenever the connection went down, we called the number on the back of the tablet, and they immediately assisted us with restarting the program. According to the psak of rabbanim, they were available Shabbos and yom tov — anything to reduce the anxiety level of the choleh under these trying circumstances. And what’s more — these state-of-the-art tablets, userfriendly and valued at $1,100 a piece, were at our disposal completely free of charge! Mi k’amcha Yisroel! A Grateful Recipient

HOW DO YOU FIND THE PERFECT GIFT FUR HIM?
Mom’s got questions, Hamaspik has answers. Get guidance to help your child grow. My child is 15 months and isn’t walking yet. Should I be concerned? If your child can pull himself up to stand and cruise, he is already learning how to walk and will likely soon begin to walk independently. It is concerning if at 15 months he is still only crawling, or if he isn’t walking on his own at 17-18 months.
My 15-month old isn’t saying many words. Should I get her evaluated? At 15 months, most babies can already say a few words. By 18 months, a child should be able to say 10-15 words with intent, even if they are unclear. It’s also important to consider other aspects of language development, such as pointing to objects and following simple directions.
My child is 12 months and not rolling or crawling. Is this a delay? Babies commonly roll over at 4-7 months, and begin to crawl at 8-9 months. Not doing so at 12 months appears to be a delay. Your child can be evaluated to determine if he is eligible for Early Intervention (EI) services to get help learning to crawl.
My 4 month old child doesn’t make eye contact. Does he need EI services? Children over the age of 4 months who do not make eye contact, such as looking at you when being fed or smiling when being smiled at, should be evaluated for services.
My 14-month old is having difficulties eating. Can she get evaluated? Feeding issues or delays generally do not qualify a child for EI services. If there is a delay in another area, for example motor or language, the feeding issue can also be addressed.

AHAVAS HASHEM Sitting beside his father, Yanky points along as he carefully mouths each word of the tefillos he is saying. Many, if not most, of the boys in his third grade class have difficulty being in shul for any stretch of time, and inevitably end up spending time in the hallway with friends or else only arriving in shul much later, as the davening draws to a close. Not Yanky. Though it is certainly difficult for him, as well, he is determined to be an “adult” mispallel, remaining in his seat, focused on uttering each word with devotion. Yanky’s father looks on with pride, watching his son say the words of Shema and following along attentively during Krias HaTorah. An immense feeling of pride wells up inside him. Affectionately, he leans over and gives Yanky a kiss on his forehead….
While every father wishes for his son to grow and succeed, and would rightfully feel quite proud of such a son, the kiss is nonetheless misplaced. To quote the Rema, “V’assur l’adam l’nashek banav haketanim b’veis haknesses l’haros she’ein ahavah k’ahavas haMakom, Baruch Hu — It is forbidden for a person to kiss his young children in shul, to firmly implant the message that there is no love comparable to the love of Hakadosh Baruch Hu.” Nothing compares to the level of love Hashem has for us, and conversely, if we truly appreciated Him and what He does for us, our love for Him would transcend any love we could possibly have for another human being. So, you say to yourself, what’s the big deal? Just because I’m supposed to love Hashem I can’t show my kid how much I love him, too? Let’s try to put this into perspective. Picture a wedding scene. It’s at the chuppah, right at the climax. The chasan is put-
ting the ring onto the kallah’s finger as he utters the fateful words that will forever change their lives. Suddenly, there’s a commotion as one of the photographers puts down his camera, rushes over to the chasan, and embraces him in a bear hug. “Moshe Baruch, it’s you! I almost didn’t recognize you! Don’t you remember me? It’s Gavriel, your roommate from back when we were together in mesivta! Remember those awesome bein hazmanim trips? Goodness, it’s been ages; we really need to catch up...” Meeting up with a longlost best friend can be quite emotional — but this is clearly the wrong time and place for such an expression. Hakadosh Baruch Hu loves each and every one of us tremendously, beyond anything we can imagine. We as well, are charged with a mitzvah of ahavas Hashem, developing a genuine heartfelt love toward Him that rises above all of our personal matters and concerns and drives us to come near to Him. Right now, I’m talking to Him and He’s right there, focused and listening to me. It’s a moment to reflect on the unparalleled love He has for me and for myself to feel a love for Him. At this moment, I have nobody else in the world. It’s not a time for me to show affection to others. So go ahead and tell your son how proud you were to watch him daven — but hold off on the display of affection until after you leave the shul. A practical application: There are various customs regarding conducting a chuppah ceremony in a beis knesses. Unfortunately, it is common that after the chuppah, relatives and well-wishers will impulsively bestow a kiss along with mazel tov wishes. While conducting the chuppah may be al-
lowed, the show of affection certainly is not. Observing the various communities around the globe, however, it is readily apparent that different kehillos maintain different approaches in this regard. Among Ashkenazim, this halacha is observed quite literally, with only a rare example of a kiss within the beis knesses, usually by someone unaware of this halacha. However, among Sefardim and those of Eidot Hamizrach, be it of Syrian, Egyptian, Moroccan or other descent, there is a clear tolerance in many situations. It is standard to kiss the hand of the rav or chacham. When returning to one’s seat after an aliyah, many kiss the hand of their father. Why is this so? First and foremost, the halacha is codified by the Rema, but finds no mention at all in the words of the Shulchan Aruch. This sets the stage for the disparity between various kehillos. That said, even Sefardim generally accept the concept of this halacha and frown upon random kissing of children, parents and so on. Those who allow it limit it to a specific range of instances, whereby the act can be described as one of kavod haTorah — respect for the Torah: those who read it, and those who are masters of it. Their understanding is that only acts of affection are proscribed, but kissing the hand of the chacham is akin to kissing a sefer Torah — something very much a part of our ahavas Hashem, not an independent and unrelated emotion. I will now digress briefly, with the understanding that this can be something about which many people have passionate opinions. It is important, though, to at least provide a proper framework for any discussion.
IN SUMMATION: 1. One may not kiss a child, or any other person, within a beis knesses. 2. Certain kehillos have historically had some degree of allowance; even among those kehillos, however, the tolerance is limited to a kiss as a display of kavod haTorah, not of affection.

THE PERFECT TIME TO BUILD YOUR SON'S MUSIC SKILLS.
Every parent is proud to have their child sit beside them in shul. Most children, however, find it difficult to sit for protracted periods of time, particularly when they do not yet have a command of the language necessary for appreciating tefillah. To bring them or not to bring them? At what age? At what cost? What if the only option is to bring a child for the full davening, whereby he’ll sit through Shema and maybe an aliyah or two, but otherwise be playing games in the hallway? The Mishnah Berurah provides two extremely pertinent points, with some elaboration: • Disturbing the concentration of even a single mispallel is quite problematic. Preventing a person from doing a mitzvah is always a serious matter, and preventing a person from being mispallel properly no less. • We place tremendous value on education. As we have done for generations, bringing our children to shul from a young age can be both a fulfillment of our chinuch obligation, as well as a way to instill an appreciation for kedusha and yiras Shamayim from a young age. We must, however, remain focused on our goal. Our job is not to be a Shabbos morning babysitter; our job is to educate. There are many ideas and opinions of how to best achieve this, but the objective must be at the forefront of our decisions. Is the experience I am molding one that will bring my son, over the long run, to a better appreciation of tefillah and what a beis knesses is all about? As the Mishnah Berurah emphasizes repeatedly, we are dealing with a real risk of “hergel naaseh teva,” repeated actions becoming nature. After years of talking in the back, playing games to alleviate boredom, and running in and out without being taught how to act with some level of reverence, it is only natural for this child to grow into an adult with no appreciation for tefillah, no reverence for a beis knesses, and no desire to challenge himself to reach higher. There are multitudes of techniques, and numerous approaches and answers, regarding putting our chinuch into action. Every child and every setting is unique. It is critical, however, to remain true to the mission of chinuch with which we are charged. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

Notably, one of the 24 things the Rambam enumerates as being a roadblock to teshuvah. This applies just as well to adults in regard to talking in shul while waiting for chazaras hashatz and other such situations.

Nothing compares to the intoxicating smell of meat that has been on the smoker all night. But with the new Fired Up menu at 306 BBQ, the options now go well beyond the smoker. You know what they say: Where there’s smoke, there’s Fired Up. “What’s for supper tonight?” This question is only matched in its frequency by the frustrated, “Mommy, where are my shoes?” Ari Pollak, new managing partner at 306 BBQ, has set his sights on making the answer as expansive as possible for all local families. The kosher food scene has seen many dishes and styles join its ranks in recent years, but few have had the impact and success of smoked food. At 306 BBQ in the Wesley Kosher shopping center, patrons sit down to authentic smoked meat that would make any Texan proud. Food connoisseurs and novices alike can’t help but thoroughly enjoy the most tender, juicy and intensely flavorful cuts of beef they’ve ever been lucky enough to put on their plate. On a recent mid-morning visit, I had the opportunity to go behind the scenes and see how the magic happens. The enormous smoker, which can hold about 60 briskets at once, had been working since the evening before to slowly prepare the brisket, pastrami and ribs for the next day. The doors to the smoker were locked, and the mashgiach was summoned to open it for us. Ari tells me that the smokehouse is under the strict supervision of the Hisachdus hechsher because he wants all Monsey residents to know they can count on the highest standards of kashrus. A mashgiach is on premises the entire time, and only he has the key to the smoker, which he gladly opened for us. Another door led to the wood chamber where large chunks of hickory wood are slowly burned to produce authentic smoke flavor. As soon as those doors opened, I wanted to drop my notepad and break out the napkins. The overpowering aroma of the most delicious barbecued meat is simply irresistible. I asked Ari about the new “Fired Up” menu and why he is expanding beyond smoked meat. “Everyone already loved our food, and with this upgrade, we want families and those celebrating special occasions to know they can rely on us for any high-quality, delicious, fleishig supper they might be in the mood for. We now serve burgers, sandwiches and fried delectables, with a salad bar that offers over 50 toppings. Our menu is quite large, but there are three things all items have in common: They’re all delicious, they’re all made in-house with the highest standards, and they’re all served quickly and efficiently. Ari has unique insight into the preferences of local families.

BRISKET: JEWISH OR TEXAN For American Jews of Ashkenazi descent, brisket is undoubtedly the most iconic cut of beef served at yom tov meals as part of traditional Jewish cuisine. It is the meat used to create the quintessentially Jewish deli meats of pastrami and corned beef, and to this day, many will not skip out on eating braised brisket on Pesach and Rosh Hashanah. At the same time, smoked brisket is considered the “National Dish of Texas” with an impact that is deeply ingrained in Texan life. So how does one piece of meat star so prominently in two vastly different cultures? The answer lies in how the brisket is prepared and made so fantastically flavorful. Brisket is a very tough cut of meat as it comes from the shoulder area, which carries much of the cow’s weight. The connective tissue running through it needs to be broken down to make it edible, and when it is, the meat becomes tender, juicy and incredibly tasty. The only way to do that is by cooking it low and slow. Ashkenazi Jews living in poverty would braise the then-cheap meat in liquid until it broke down and turned soft. They brought this dish with them to America, and it eventually made its way to Texas where smoking meat was already popular. Because smoking is another low and slow cooking method, Texans came to embrace the brisket as their very own. Today, the brisket has come full circle at the popular, kosher 306 BBQ smokehouse. Not satisfied with just Texas-style smoked brisket, the menu was expanded to include Kansas City-style and other smoked briskets, and since it’s all about remembering roots, managing partner Ari Pollak, a native of Montreal, has also made sure to add cured Montreal Smoked Meat to the mouthwatering menu.

His most recent job was lead chef at Aishes Chayil, where he catered to a mostly chassidish clientele. He has trained at the acclaimed Culinary Institute of America, and his experience includes stints at large international catering groups. “We are adding some items that have never been on menus before, and at the same time, we will also be serving four kinds of cholent, with all the trimmings that have become part of Leil Shishi. This is now a place for everyone.” It isn’t just hyperbole. The new menu includes an amazingly varied list of options, with a kids menu to top it off, and the layout was reconstructed to fit the new Fired Up vision. The inviting rustic party room nearby and the popular 306 BBQ truck will still be available for rent, and the smoked offerings will still be the star of the show, but 306 BBQ is clearly thinking bigger and bolder than ever before. Whether it’s picking up a quick fast food meal for the family, or sitting down for an elegant night out, this is now the place for Monsey residents and visitors to go. As I get ready to leave, I ask the energetic Mr. Pollak where he sees his food establishment go from here. “I want families to look at us as a place they can always rely on for a delicious and affordable meal. The new menu and focus on service means we are no longer just a niche, once-inawhile destination for something different. We think Monsey is ready for more, and so far, the feedback has been tremendous.”

Shas Yiden - a Bracha Amidst a Pandemic - 853,965 blatt
By Rabbi Eliezer Sandler Last week, sixty-three incredible young talmidei chachomim gathered in a hall in Beit Shemesh. Their wives did not attend this year due to the current health situation, which also prevented the 12 Shas Yiden avreichim geonim in London from attending. They were all celebrating their annual Siyum Hashas, having collectively completed 853,965 blatt of Gemara, Rashi and Tosfos! Prior to the festive meal, the avreichim geonim underwent two hours of grilling questions on the entire Shas. The examiners are recognized as leading talmidei chachomim – Maran Hagaon Harav Chaim Weiss, Rav of Beitar Illit and Maran Hagaon Harav Bunim Schreiber, Rosh Yeshiva of ‘Netiv Hadaas’. Both examiners are known as geonim charifim and bekiim in Shas. Without any papers or references on the table before them, they reeled off some 150 questions that included: asking for page citations, facts, logic and for detailed information that basically required knowledge of the Talmud by heart.
The questioners were both amazed at the prowess of each of the avreichim geonim. Questions that were ‘thrown’ at the avreichim geonim received a thunderous response from all, simultaneously. (A video of the farher is available to be viewed on the Shas Yiden website www.shasyiden. com, which has videos of past annual
farhers.) Over the 12 years since Shas Yiden’s inception, its successful growth and the mastery of Shas by the avreichim geonim has captured the attention and imagination of the gedolei Torah all over, and who have been effusive in their praise at how they have made the idea of becoming a Shas Yid achievable and popular. After personally
examining the Shas Yiden every year with searching questions, Maran Sar Hatorah, Hagaon Harav Chaim Kanievsky, shlit”a, exclaimed “Zei kennen Shas” (They know Shas!) and then agreed to become the Nasi of Shas Yiden.
Meeting the Challenge and more
The avreichim geonim effortlessly followed the questioners’ changing from masechta
Note from Sar Hatorah to the 63 Siyumei Hashas
25 Marcheshvan 5781 (Note: The Nasi of Shas Yiden, Harav Chaim Kanievsky, shlit”a, was unable to attend the Siyum, which he does every year, and penned a note to the Shas Yiden.) In honor of the Siyum Hashas of the kollel avreichim geonim Shas Yiden under the leadership of our friend Hagaon Harav Avrohom Halevi Eisen, shlit”a. It is difficult for me to participate on this Yom Tov of these tens of talmidei chachomim, gedolei Torah; they are all outstanding in Torah. They know the entire Shas on which I have personally tested them and saw that they are knowledgeable in the entire Shas. I send my best wishes that they should acquire knowledge of the entire Torah to learn, to teach, to guard, to do and to fulfill all the words of Thy Torah in love. And may the Gaon, our friend (Rav Eisen) shlit”a, merit to open many more kollelim and to cause Torah to grow and be glorified.

Shas Yiden avreichim geonim
Sample Questions from the Siyum Hashas Farher To Watch the Farher click on: w w w.shasyiden.com QUESTIONS: 1. When Tannaim and Amoraim are about to lecture on a particular masechta, they have opening ‘styles’. How many are there for Maseches Megilla and where are they recorded? 2. Which similar sugya is to be found in Brochos, Shabbos, Eiruvin, Pesachim and Succah? 3. What was the name of Abaye’s father? 4. Where are to be found 2 chapters in 2 masechtos of 2 different orders of the Mishna, both in the same place
in its Mishna, and they both begin on the same page number and the same side of the folio, in the same location and row number? 5. Who is the Amora who appears a few times in the Talmud, made a statement which was strongly questioned and he was shamed, and in the end it was known that he was correct? 6. Where in Shas are the sugyos that mitzvos require intent? 7. Where is the law of “Bari veshema” (“Clear and Perhaps”) to be found in Shas?
ANSWERS: 1. Fourteen – Megilla 11a, and according to Hagaos Habach and the Gra – another 2 2. Dmai ha lo chazi lei – is not suited for him, that if he wishes he can render his possesions hefker and he is rendered poor, and the dmai is now suited for him as it says in a Mishna – Brochos 47a 3. Keilil – Rashi, Zevachim 118b 4. Perek Keitzad, Yevamot 16 and Bava Kama 16
5. Rava – Gittin 29b, 77b, Bava Metzia 81b, 97a, Avoda Zara 22a; and also Rav Papa – Bava Metzia 81a 6. Brachos 13a regarding the Reading of Shma; Eiruvin 95b regarding Tefillin; Pesochim 114b regarding matza and maror; Rosh Hashanna 28b regarding shofar 7. Kesubos 12a and 16a; Bava Kama 35b and 118b; Bava Metzia 37b
to masechta. Questions ranged from how many times does such an expression or ruling appear in a particular tractate to complex reasoning from one tractate to another. Someone unfamiliar with Talmudic study would have been very hard pressed to follow the pace of questioning and the complexity. When Rav Weiss finished his testing of the avreichim geonim, he said that he very
much regretted being unable to meet with the Shas Yiden on Shabbos, for dialoging with them would be the highest and most fulfilling oneg (pleasure of) Shabbos. After concluding his searching examination of the Shas Yiden avreichim geonim, Rav Bunim Schreiber commented “I sat with them for a long time and discussed many subjects from all over Shas, and I am a witness that their mastery and incredible
knowledge is unlimited. It was an inspiring and heart-warming sight to see tens of avreichim geonim rising to the house of Hashem to become great scholars in all of Torah.” For more information and to donate to Shas Yiden, please call 718-702-1528 or write to: 1274 49th Street #562, Brooklyn, NY 11219.
Shas Yiden – the ‘Disruptive Technology’ of Torah Learning
The Pozna Rov, Hagaon Harav Avrohom Eisen reciting the Kaddish in memory of his father
“Shas Yiden is the ‘disruptive technology’ of the Torah world today,” exclaimed one of the most ardent monthly supporters of the Shas Yiden kollelim network in Israel and London, UK. Disruptive technology is an innovation that significantly alters the way that consumers, industries, or businesses operate, and sweeps away the systems or ‘habits’ it replaces because it has attributes that are recognizably superior, he explained. “Ever since Shas Yiden came on the Torah scene 12 years ago, its impact has been felt throughout the Torah world. The five kollelim where 75 incredible avreichim geonim and baalei middos (people of noble character) are groomed, have become an integral part of the world Torah landscape. “Every avreich completes the entire Shas five times each year (13,555 blatt), knows it b’al peh and they have regular public farhers. Thus, today such proficiency is not only acclaimed and accepted, but many across the Torah world are trying to emulate their example, boruch Hashem.
All the Shas Yiden dancing in celebrating the Siyum
“Not only are they amazing, but I have never had such fulfilment from any of my charity giving. It hasn’t cost me a dime. Whatever I donate in any particular year, is returned from my investments, and more. For me, it is a ‘disruptive tzedakah’ as well. Thank you, Shas Yiden.” Hagaon Harav Avrohom Eisen handing out gifts and envelopes with a cash gifts for the wives of the avreichim geonim

Supreme Court: New York’s Limitations on Houses of Worship Unconstitutional In a victory for religious rights, the highest court in the land has overturned New York State’s draconian restrictions on houses of worship, classifying them as a violation of religious rights guaranteed by the Constitution’s First Amendment. The Supreme Court ruling was announced just before midnight on November 25, granting requests filed by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn, Agudath Israel of America, Agudath Israel of Kew Gardens Hills, Agudath Israel of Madison, Rabbi Yisroel Reisman and Stephen Saphirstein. The legal actions asked the court to lift limits enacted by Cuomo that allowed just ten congregants at prayer services within areas designated as red zones, and slightly higher numbers in New York’s orange and yellow cluster zones. An opinion written by Justice Neil Gorsuch, one of five conservative justices who sided with the religious groups, said that Governor Andrew Cuomo acted unfairly when he chose certain businesses to be classified as essential, and therefore not bound by capacity limits he imposed on other entities, such as houses of worship. “It turns out that the businesses the Governor considers essential include hardware stores, acupuncturists and liquor stores. Bicycle repair shops, certain signage companies, accountants, lawyers and insurance agents are all essential too. So at least according to the Governor, it may be unsafe to go to church, but it is always fine to pick up another bottle of wine,
146 / THE MONSEY VIEW / December 2, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
shop for a new bike or spend the afternoon exploring your distal points and meridians. Who knew public health would so perfectly align with secular convenience?” wrote Gorsuch. Gorsuch observed that allowing laundromats, banks, hardware stores and liquor stores to remain open while forbidding religious institutions enforcing the same safety precautions crossed a constitutional line. “The only explanation for treating religious places differently seems to be a judgment that what happens there isn’t as ‘essential’ as what happens in secular spaces,” wrote Gorsuch. “Indeed, the Governor is remarkably frank about this: In his judgment laundry and liquor, travel and tools are all ‘essential,’ while traditional religious exercises are not. That is exactly the kind of discrimination that the First Amendment forbids.” Agudath Israel of America hailed the victory as historic, noting that it reaffirmed “the bedrock American principle that religious freedom shall not be a second-class right in the United States.”
Slammed for Hypocrisy, Cuomo Disinvites His Elderly Mother for Thanksgiving In a textbook example of “Do as I say, not as I do,” Governor Andrew Cuomo found himself in an awkward position after disclosing in an interview that he would be having two of his adult daughters, as well as his 89-year-old mother, as guests in Albany for Thanksgiving dinner. Having repeatedly urged New Yorkers not to travel for Thanksgiving, to keep their distance from the elderly who are at high risk for COVID-19, and to spend the holiday with people with whom they normally interact, Cuomo’s remarks raised eyebrows and drew mountains of criticism. According to The New York Times, the governor urged New Yorkers to use this Thanksgiving, a holiday often spent with loved ones who gather from near and far, as an opportunity to pay homage to health care workers, essential workers and those who lost their lives during the pandemic.
Imagine... “Why don’t we really honor that this Thanksgiving?” mused Cuomo. “And saying yes, we’re going to be alone physically, but we are spiritually together, celebrating in a way that is even deeper than just the proximate location of sitting next to someone.” Within hours, the governor’s holiday plans had been revised. His office backpedaled by pointing out that he had said that his plans were subject to change, and that he hadn’t really meant to say his mother Matilda and his daughters would be joining him for the holiday. “Given the current circumstances with COVID he will have to work through COVID and will not be seeing them,” said gubernatorial senior adviser Richard Azzopardi. “Don’t tell his mom — she doesn’t know yet.”
Accidental Multimillion-Dollar Order Gives Evergreen a Chance to Shine A seven-year-old Monsey-area boy was clearly thinking big, following up his mother’s grocery order with one of his own, which included 999,999 turkeys at a price of $5,585,944.14. The boy, identified by Evergreen only as Yonatan, was placing what was supposed to be a pretend order on the store’s website, which included multiple items including the turkeys, 21 pounds of red peppers, 23 bottles of coffee creamer, 3,000 bags of red cabbage as well as half a pound flounder fillets, cartons of brown eggs, boxes of large trash bags, bottles of dishwashing soap and cartons of cherry tomatoes, all in quantities of 9,000 each. The order came to a total of $62,826,244.64. Yonatan’s mother contacted the store immediately after receiving an email confirmation of her order, which was canceled promptly. Not wanting to disappoint Yonatan, Evergreen invited him back to the store, gifting him a fifteen-pound turkey and handing his mother a gift card. After choosing his turkey, Yonatan busied himself on the store’s newly installed self-serve kiosks, putting together another order, this time consisting of just one turkey, but also including a 9x13” pan of chicken shawarma, 6,001 9x13” pans of crispy chicken fingers, 9,000 medium charcuterie boards, another large quantity of coffee creamer and an assortment of candy. This order, totalling $140,195.86, wasn’t put through. Sharing the story on social media, an Evergreen spokesperson commented on the ease of their new self-serve ordering system, with one observer noting, “It’s so simple, even a seven-year-old can do it.”
Suspect Arrested in Monsey Glatt Assault A 41-year-old man was arrested last Thursday after assaulting a delivery driver at Monsey Glatt. According to Yeshiva World News, the driver was unloading his truck when the unidentified man wanted to leave the parking lot and asked him to move his vehicle. When the driver asked the man to wait a few minutes while he completed his delivery, the suspect responded by punching him in the head. A crowd of people quickly emerged, with Chaverim responding in time to hold the suspect until the Town of Ramapo Police Department arrived on scene to make an arrest. The suspect was charged with felony assault second degree due to the age disparity between the two men, as per New York State penal law, and was arraigned and released on his own recognizance. The victim suffered a concussion and received multiple stitches to his face, with Hatzoloh of Rockland responding to the scene.

explains to Rabbi Reiness and his son Nechemia why he feels like the black sheep of his family. He visits the carpentry shop, where he surprises himself by doing some carving work — and enjoying it.
he wheels of the accordion cart protested as Ariella wheeled it down the street; they were not enjoying the overuse after a long hiatus. Ariella pulled the cart behind her, deliberating whether she should go into the hardware store to buy something to oil them with. She glanced at her watch. No, she’d better leave that for later. Zahava’s little students were waiting. They had made up to begin at 10 a.m., and now it was two minutes past ten… “Good morning, Ariella.” “Good morning, Mrs. Mayer,” Ariella said, not looking at her watch anymore, though the voice of her high school teacher gave her an urge to glance at it again. It was a reminder of those days when Mrs. Mayer would stand at the gate of the school to greet the latecomers. “How are you, Ariella?” “Baruch Hashem, good. How are you, Mrs. Mayer?” Mrs. Mayer chuckled. “Baruch Hashem, the usual. I’m busy with school… So what’s doing?” “Baruch Hashem, things are fine.” Ariella nodded as if to underscore what she said, and now she did check her watch again. Not because of her memories of being scolded for coming late to school, but because of the children in Zahava’s playgroup. She had promised to come play for them in honor of Rosh Chodesh, as a nice gesture to her friend, and she didn’t really fancy coming late. “I thought about you a lot this past week,” Mrs. Mayer remarked. “Thank you,” Ariella said politely.

“You’re probably thinking that I’m just being super nice, and that’s what people like to say when they meet someone they haven’t seen in a long while. But I really did think about you a lot this past week.” Her teacher leaned on the gate, a sign that she was planning more than just a polite exchange of pleasantries. “In what regard did Mrs. Mayer think about me?” Ariella asked, not affirming or negating her teacher’s assumption about what had passed through her mind when she’d heard her empathetic remark. “I met someone who asked about you. And I remembered suddenly, as I was telling her how wonderful you are, how fond I am of you…” “I’ve always been a big fan of Mrs. Mayer as well,” Ariella said directly. “Thank you for saying nice things about me.” “I hope something will come of it…” And I hope not, Ariella felt like whispering. She smiled abashedly. Her teacher showered her with brachos, and they parted ways. Blocking out her thoughts, Ariella dragged her accordion cart up the stairs of Zahava’s building. She looked at the door of the rented apartment and remembered how she’d come with Zahava and her mother more than five years ago to set up the apartment before Zahava’s wedding. “You really came!” Zahava welcomed her friend with a grin and ushered her into the large, enclosed porch. “Thanks so much, Ariella! Kinderlach, look who came to visit us — my friend Ariella, the music morah!” About fifteen two-year-olds surrounded Ariella, some more hesitant and others overly friendly. “Accordion, accordion!” one blond child shouted. “That’s right,” Ariella replied, surprised that the word was in his lexicon. “This is my accordion. And do you want to see what else I brought for you? What is this?” She pulled out a little bag of dreidels from her case. The children were quiet. “Wait, we didn’t learn about those yet,” Zahava said as she walked into the room with a cup of juice. “It’s just Rosh Chodesh Kislev. There’s almost a month to learn about Chanukah. But it’s great that you’re going to get us into the NIQUE HIGH-END COLLECTION OF: spirit. Kinderlach, who knows what this is?” They all gazed silently at the bag. Zahava took one dreidel Kallah bags • Evening bags • Handbags • Wallets and spun it on the low table.

your playgroup!” Within a few minutes, the accordion knew all the kinderlach in Zahava’s group very well. It sang and played and danced and spun, and told them about the miracles and wonders of Chanukah as everyone sang along. “That was so much fun!” Zahava said when they finished. “Maybe you can come do this regularly — for pay, of course. Look how beautifully the children cooperated!” “I told you already, you can do the same thing with recorded music. But you’re right, I should come here every now and then, if only for my own plea-
sure. I really enjoyed this, too.” Ariella shrugged off the accordion. The children crowded around her, reluctant to part from the large, wine-colored instrument. “My tatty is going to buy me an accordion!” a voice announced confidently, very close to Ariella. “He said on Chanukah he is going to buy me an accordion.” She looked at the child. It was the same little boy. Could he be older than he looked? “How old are you, Chaim’ke?” she asked. “Two and four months.” Ariella raised her eyebrows at Zahava. “Four months! Nice vocabulary!
He gets updated every month?” She laughed. Zahava smiled. “He’s a very precocious child for his age,” she said in a low voice, while the children continued stroking the accordion even after it was packed away in its case. “And yes, a month ago, he told me that he is two and three months old. And the month before that, he laughed about being two and two — months, that is.” “Sounds like a borderline genius, doesn’t it?” “Perhaps,” Zahava said quietly. “Now come to the kitchen a minute. I may not know much about IQ and all that, but I בס”ד

do think he is quite exceptional — for sure more than just a ‘very precocious child.’” “He must be an oldest, and his mother spends all day talking to him and teaching him things.” “Actually not.” Zahava took a deep breath. “He’s an orphan, Ariella. His mother passed away a short time after he was born.” “Really,” Ariella replied. And instead of walking into the kitchen, she turned back toward the porch. “Come here a second, Ariella!” Zahava hurried after her. “I don’t like it when you shut me out and run away in the middle of a conversation. Why do you do that?” “Oh, maybe because I don’t think that you have to marry someone just because he has a gifted son.” “Did I ask you to do anything? Did I talk about marriage? It’s true that I wanted you to get to know Chaim’ke because of his father, but it was only by way of an introduction…” “Zahava.” Ariella sighed. “Please. Leave me alone for now, all right?” “What do you mean?” “Let me recover from my visit to Belgium.” Zahava opened her mouth to say something, but then closed it. She toyed with the handle on her oven door. “Fine,” she said eventually. “Do you want a drink? That’s why I called you into the kitchen. It’s dry outside. And you sang and exerted yourself.” Her friend was quiet for a moment. “Okay, thanks. I’ll take a drink. Even though we both know that you took me to the kitchen to tell me quietly that Chaim’ke Braun doesn’t have a mother and that it’s a big mitzvah to raise an orphan.” “I didn’t plan to tell you about the mitzvah aspect.” Zahava smiled without meaning to. “Why not?”
“Because I didn’t give much hope that the conversation would get that far.” “You’re right.” Ariella put her empty cup down on the counter. “Thanks, Zahava. And thank you for the opportunity to visit your playgroup. Maybe I need to switch from being a private tutor to being a music teacher in preschools. The kids are beyond adorable.” “I think so too!” “And I mean all the kids in your playgroup. Not just the one who is two years and four months old.” “Fine, fine, I get it, Ariella.” “Good.” Ariella returned to her accordion and grasped the handle of the cart. “Goodbye, kids!” she called out, and left. She strode briskly down the street, as if running away from something. What was it with people today? At least her parents were not pressuring her about this right now. They were too busy with Osher. She raised her eyes. The street had darkened at once; a large, low cloud had slipped over the sun. She didn’t like winter; she’d always been a spring girl. And despite its being Kislev, the day had started off so beautifully… But not all days that start off nicely finish that way. She knew that from experience. And it seemed to be happening yet again… What was that acrid smell in her stairwell if not the mushroom soup she’d cooked for herself, burning because she’d forgotten to turn off the flame before she’d left the house? The kitchen was cloudy with smoke. She groped her way to the stove to turn off the flame, before tossing the disposable, now-blackened pot straight into the garbage. Drops began to spatter on her window. Ugh. She felt bad about the few shekels the pot had cost, but she was

even more upset about the soup. What could have been better on such a day than a bowl of filling, hot soup? Now she was just in the mood to crawl into bed, switch off the phones, and burrow under the blanket that blocked her off from the whole world. And that’s exactly what Ariella did.
Osher Wait a second. If Ariella didn’t know that I’m in Acco now, then how did she send me the lemonade? So maybe it wasn’t even her. No one was in our room. I went over to the Reinesses’ ancient telephone and dialed Ariella’s number. But she didn’t pick up, neither at home nor on her cell phone. I deliberated for a moment, and then I called home. I didn’t want Tatty or Mommy to answer. I didn’t want
“So tell them it’s a trial, and maybe I’ll be back next week. And if I decide that I’m staying then… well, I’ll give them more details then.” “Nice. They’re supposed to wait patiently for another week, huh?” She spoke as if she were my older sister. “And in the meantime, what? Do you know how worried they are?” “You can see that for yourself,” I answered her quietly. “They’re not calling the police, right?” “Right, but…” “So why not?” She didn’t answer me. “Because Rabbi Steinhaus once told Tatty that he can trust me.” “And they know that you sometimes disappear for short periods of time…” She couldn’t help herself. “Right,” I answered, irritated. “And if I am chased, then I run even farther. Now tell me, is Ariella there?”
“Actually not.” Zahava took a deep breath. “He’s an orphan, Ariella. His mother passed away a short time after he was born.” them to ask me where I was exactly, because I doubted they’d be satisified with the answer: that it’s only a trial, so why bother telling them anything about it, and if I do end up staying here, I’ll tell them more. But I knew that it was more likely that one of the girls would pick up, either Shoshi or Lakey. Tatty and Mommy know that most of the calls are for them, anyway. “Osher!” I was right; it was Shoshi. And I couldn’t decide if she was excited that I was calling, or disappointed that it was me and not one of her friends. “How are you, Osher?” “Baruch Hashem.” “We…” She paused for a second. “We miss you. Where are you?” “I’m someplace. It’s only for a trial. If it doesn’t work out here, I’ll go back to Daas Torah.” “How can you do this?” Shoshi asked. “Don’t you ever think about how Tatty and Mommy are going out of their minds with worry about you?”
160 / THE MONSEY VIEW / December 2, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
“No.” “Do you know if she sent me lemonade?” “Sent you lemonade? To where?” “To here.” “If she doesn’t know where you are, how can she send you something?” Shoshi asked logically. And then she said suddenly, “Wait, so does she know?” “No, she doesn’t know,” I answered. But my answer didn’t help. Things only got worse. “Oh, Mommy’s just coming in,” Shoshi said. “Mommy, do you know that Ariella knows where Osher is?” I didn’t want to hear what Mommy answered. I didn’t want to hear how they misunderstood me yet again, whether it was my fault or someone else’s. And I didn’t want to hear Ariella get in trouble because of me. I hung up the phone. To be continued…

THE PULSE: President Trump gave his approval for the
General Services Administration (GSA) to provide transition assistance to the incoming Biden administration. The White House also signed off on Joe Biden receiving the Presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Daily Brief (PDB) on national security matters. Biden said that while he has not had direct contact with President Trump, the White Houseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s transition efforts are sincere. The president insists that he remains committed to the legal fight and his team is still battling the results in court, but their efforts have so far met with little success. Below are some allegations of misconduct that were widely circulated yet turned out to be less than sinister. ALLEGATION: There were more votes cast in Wiscon-
sin than registered voters. Wisconsin counted 3,239,920
168 / THE MONSEY VIEW / December 2, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
votes but only has 3,129,000 registered voters. RESOLUTION: The 3,129,000 registered voters num-
ber is from the 2018 election. According to the Wisconsin Election Commission, there were 3.68 million active registered voters in 2020 and nearly 3.3 million cast ballots in the election. Wisconsin also allows same-day voter registration. Biden won Wisconsin by over 20,000 votes. The Trump campaign paid for a recount, which did not turn up any evidence of fraud. The recount netted Biden an additional 87 votes. ALLEGATION: Republican voters in Maricopa County,
Arizona, were given black Sharpie markers that would cause the ink to bleed and invalidate their ballots.
RESOLUTION: Maricopa County election officials clarified that their voting machines could count ballots marked with Sharpie ink. The election officials stated that Sharpie ink is actually preferable as it dries faster and does not smudge like ballpoint ink. Arizona Attorney General Republican Mark Brnovich said he has no evidence that the use of Sharpie markers disenfranchised voters. He dismissed allegations of widespread voter fraud in Arizona and pointed out that Republicans did better than expected in state-level elections. He said that “if indeed there was some great conspiracy, it apparently didn’t work.” ALLEGATION: Dead people voted in Pennsylvania,
Georgia and Michigan. RESOLUTION: A careful analysis of the cases highlight-
ed by those alleging that dead people voted resulted in a less than nefarious conclusion. Here are some examples: James Blalock died in 2006. It was alleged that he cast a vote in this election cycle. However, the vote in question was cast by his widow, who is registered as Mrs. James Blalock and always voted under that name. Deborah Jean Christiansen died in 2019 and allegedly cast a vote in Cobb County, Georgia, in 2020. In truth, the last ballot cast under her registration was in 2018. A different woman named Deborah Jean Christiansen, born in the same year, voted in Cobb County in 2020. William Bradley, who would be 118 in 2020 and died in 1984, cast a vote in the 2020 election. Michigan election officials confirmed that his son, also named William Bradley, cast a vote that was incorrectly entered under his father’s name. The son did not vote twice. Bradley is one of many allegedly dead voters found to be alive. Donna Brydges, who is 75 years old, confirmed to the AP that she is alive despite reports to the contrary. Pennsylvania officials estimate that approximately 100 votes were cast legally by people who succumbed to death during the time between mailing in their ballots and Election Day. Pennsylvania also uses a default birthdate of 01/01/1800 to protect the confidentiality of certain registered voters who are victims of crimes. This default date erroneously gives the impression of dead people voting. Even though occasional mistakes may happen, states have robust systems to strike dead people from their voter rolls. No evidence has been presented to indicate that widespread fraud of dead people voting was perpetrated. ALLEGATION: Biden received 100% of votes received overnight in Michigan. RESOLUTION: This claim was made by Matt Mackowi-
ak, a conservative commentator and chairman of Texas’ Travis County Republican Party. Mackowiak later retracted the claim and said that it was incorrect. Allegations were also made that trucks delivering food to election officials were, in reality, dropping off fraudulent ballots for Joe Biden; however, a Michigan judge dismissed these
charges as baseless when the testimony of those making these allegations did not hold up to scrutiny. Biden’s totals increased throughout the night as was expected because Biden’s supporters tended to vote absentee, and mail-in votes were tabulated after the in-person counts were reported. ALLEGATION: Michigan precincts had vote tallies that were out of balance RESOLUTION: Many Michigan precincts reported totals
that were out of balance. However, none of these discrepancies would be enough to overturn Biden’s victory of over 150,000 votes. The mismatches in the Detroit area applied to less than 400 votes. Election officials insist that these problems are due to bookkeeping errors and are not the product of fraud. Often these issues arise when one spoils their ballot and is issued a new one or when one signs in to vote but leaves before voting. These problems are not new and were worse in 2016 when Trump carried the state by a little more than 10,000 votes. ALLEGATION: Dominion voting machines used algo-
rithms to fraudulently increase Biden’s vote totals. RESOLUTION: This allegation was made by Sidney Pow-
ell, an attorney for the Trump campaign. She could not provide evidence to back up her claim, and the Trump team eventually cut ties with her. Georgia’s Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger ordered a hand recount of all votes tabulated by the Dominion voting machines in his state. No discrepancies in the machine counts were found. The Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency declared the election “the most secure in American history.” ALLEGATION: Pennsylvania had widespread irregulari-
ties with mail-in voting. RESOLUTION: Judge Matthew Brann, a longtime con-
servative Republican whose appointment to the bench was backed by the Federalist Society, called the allegations “speculative” and “unsupported by evidence.” He criticized the attempt to disqualify the mail-in ballots. He wrote: “In the United States of America, this cannot justify the disenfranchisement of a single voter, let alone all the voters of its sixth most populated state.” A federal appeals court also rejected the claims of fraud. Judge Stephanos Bibas, a Trump appointee, wrote for the three-judge panel who were all appointed by Republicans that “Free, fair elections are the lifeblood of our democracy. Charges of unfairness are serious. But calling an election unfair does not make it so. Charges require specific allegations and then proof. We have neither here.” Pennsylvania experienced delays in the tabulation of mail-in ballots because, unlike Florida, which allowed the counting of ballots as they arrived, Pennsylvania law barred the opening of mail-in ballots until Election Day.

continue to contest the election results in many states. However, many states are moving ahead with the certification of their totals. The president’s legal actions may have a beneficial impact in upcoming elections. They will likely serve as an impetus for states to streamline their processes and improve mail-in voting procedures. States like Pennsylvania will probably amend their laws to allow mail-in ballots to be tabulated as they arrive instead of on Election Day. Wayne County will work to improve its bookkeeping of tallies. States will need to ensure that all changes to election laws follow the correct process and are not implemented unilaterally by a governor or state legislature. However, once all the allegations are heard in court and the election is certified, it is essential that faith in America’s system of democracy not be undermined. Due to social media’s advent, it is exceedingly easy for the purveyors of misinformation to spread their ideas to a broad audience. This is tragic because should people lose confidence in the ability to effect change through the electoral system, a resort to violence often becomes the only method to achieve one’s aims. The United States justified its involvement in the Iraq War because of the belief that the establishment of fair and free elections in Iraq and the Middle East would be an antidote to strife and violence. Natan Sharansky made the case that the spread of democracy is essential for the defeat of terror. Americans must remain confident in the ability of their country to conduct fair and free elections. State election officials from both parties have publicly made the case that the election results were accurate and have begun to certify results. Republicans and Democrats are both working hard to turn out the vote in Georgia’s upcoming Senate runoff. Despite the heated political rhetoric, they expect that the election results will accurately reflect the majority’s will.

BLACK AND WHITE Wit h a Burst of L ight Recipes and food styling by: Rivky Friedman
When Chodesh Kislev makes its grand debut, I’m ecstatic. The jelly-filled doughnuts, the crispy potato latkes, the warmth and joy of family time — it’s Chanukah! Chanukah is also a great time for me to channel my creative energy into party ideas. Tablescapes, food, themes — I’m in my element! I always try creating a theme that’s unique yet classy, and of course, easy to pull off — like this one. I love how this presentation panned out, and I’m more than excited to share it with you. The black-and-white tones are sophisticated and elegant, yet the vibe is fun and joyful. May the light of the Chanukah licht bring happiness and simcha to all!
Ah freilichen Chanukah! Rivky Friedman
Bringing my dreams to fruition was possible thanks to Miriam from the Naperie team. Thank you for the gorgeous tablecloths, glasses and napkins, and for your valuable expertise. Working with you was part of my Chanukah joy! A shout-out to my dear mother and sisters, Kreindy and Temmy, for all your help, always.

L AT K E BURGER Latkes? Check. Fried onions? Check. Pulled Beef? Check. Winner? Check, check! Having your latke serve as the “bun” is everything. It’s fun, it’s insanely delicious, and it’s sure to garner lots of oohs and aahs from your guests.
6 Spanish onions, sliced into half-rings (cut the onion in half vertically, then slice it horizontally into half circles) 6 tsp. olive oil DIRECTIONS 1. Coat the bottom of the pan with olive oil. Heat the pan on medium-high heat until the oil shimmers. 2. Add the onion slices, and stir to coat the onions with the oil. Spread the onions out evenly over the pan and let cook, stirring occasionally. 3. After 10 minutes, sprinkle some salt over the onions. To keep the onions from drying out as they cook, add a little water to the pan. 4. Let cook for another 30 minutes to an hour, stirring every few minutes. When the onions start sticking to the pan, allow them to stick a little and brown, but then quickly stir them before they burn. Continue to cook and scrape, cook and scrape, until the onions are a rich, browned color.
PULLED BRISKET 2 lb. second-cut brisket 1 cup ketchup
While the onions are sautéeing, prepare the latkes: LATKES (Yields 14–16 latkes)
1 cup barbecue sauce ¼ cup water ½ cup light brown sugar ¼ tsp. salt ½ tsp. paprika ½ tsp. garlic powder DIRECTIONS 1. Line a 9x13” pan with parchment paper. 2. Place the meat inside, then score it. (With a sharp knife, cut a deep X into the meat. This lets the sauce/juices seep in.) 3. Mix the sauce ingredients and pour the mixture over the brisket. 4. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake at 350° for 3 hours. 5. Once the meat is done, use two forks to pull apart and shred the meat. (I prepared the brisket a few days before serving and just warmed it up when I was ready to stack the “burger.”)
6 potatoes 6 eggs ½ cup flour 1½ tsp. salt Dash of pepper DIRECTIONS 1. Grate the potatoes and drain off all the liquid. 2. Add the remaining ingredients, mixing well. 3. To achieve the burger shape for the latkes, use a round cookie cutter to fry them. Place the cookie cutter into the pan and spoon some latke mixture inside. When the bottom of the latke starts turning golden, remove the cookie cutter, flip the latke, and fry it until the other side is also golden. A S S E M B LY Spread some spring mix on a plate and place a latke on top. Add a heaping tablespoon of sautéed onions. Top with a tablespoon of pulled brisket, then cover with another latke. Stick a skewer down the center of the “burger” so it stays neat and in shape.
SUPER CRISPY SALAD This salad was introduced to me several years ago by my aunt Chany, and it has since become a staple in our family. This is the salad we look forward to for yom tov and never get bored of. It has so few ingredients, yet itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s refreshing and utterly delicious.
INGREDIENTS 2 boxes fresh mushrooms, sliced 1 bag (8 oz.) romaine lettuce 1 lb. fresh snap peas 1 box alfalfa sprouts 1 cup toasted slivered almonds DRESSING 1 cup mayonnaise 1 T. vanilla sugar 2 T. sugar 2 T. lemon juice 1 tsp. parsley flakes 2 cloves garlic Pinch of salt and pepper DIRECTIONS 1. Combine the vegetables and the toasted almonds. 2. Mix the dressing ingredients and pour it over the salad.

This pull-apart doughnut tower was made by my very talented sister and her friend Chana Malka. They used a standard doughnut recipe for these mini doughnuts, and then glazed and decorated them. They then spread chocolate on a styrofoam cone and arranged the doughnuts on it.
A knotted napkin adds dimension to any place setting.
This black-and-white pattern is called buffalo plaid. You can find items with this print in your local party shops.

BOARDS There is nothing more impressive than a good food board. Loaded with a variety of foods and different spreads, there’s always something for everyone. I’m a huge fan of (any) boards because the advantages are (more than!) threefold: 1. It’s served buffet-style, which means there’s no plating and constant serving for the host. 2. Preparations are minimal and assembly is easy. 3. It’s enjoyed by young and old alike because (did we already say this?) there’s something for everyone. Also, it may look like something you wouldn’t think you can create — but it’s actually really simple to do. You just need the right boards, a variety of foods, and you’re ready to start! While a complete food board certainly looks like a piece of art, here are some tips for easy assembly: • Choose a platter according to the size board you want to make — large plates, trays and wooden serving boards all work great. Use one large platter, unless you’re planning to have platters on a few tables. In that case, prepare multiple smaller platters. • Add visual interest by using differently sized bowls for things like dips and spreads. Start by placing these bowls on the platter, then use them to prop up meats, fries and other components. • Next, place the larger components on the board, using the bowls as starting points. As you start placing things, don’t worry about filling in all the space. Reserve some of each component to fill in space later, if needed. Continue placing the foods in clusters until you’ve completely covered the board. This process is actually relaxing and fun; turn on relaxing music and let the magic happen. • Feel free to customize your board to your liking. The options are endless!

After all has been said and done, there’s something delightfully satisfying about sitting at a Chanukah party that you’ve helped orchestrate, especially one at your in-laws. There’s a heady peace in the midst of that happy chaos, in knowing that you’ve been through gift- and menu-hashing and can now bask in the results of all that hustling. So yes, I did feel almost petulant at the thought of missing out on that pleasure. My in-laws had gone ahead with longed-for renovations, and would still be sans an operational kitchen on Chanukah. And so, in an unprecedented twist, they’d be eating out. Instead of hosting the annual family get-together, they’d be gracing the tables of each of us married offspring, celebrating individually with one family per night. No collaborative planning. No matzav. No conference call to plan the conference call to decide the timing of the menu-and-gift-planning conference call. No downtime with all of us sibs-in-law laughing and scratching pen to paper in efforts to win the gaily wrapped mystery gift. The giddy frenzy of trying to connect, connect, connect before the big party was over and humdrum life got in the way again. But the desire to honor and impress some of the most important people in my life was alive and dancing. And when I fully shifted gears and accepted the scaling down of events, I felt privileged to finally give something back to my in-laws, whose life force seemed to derive from unconditional giving. So I happily snatched up the first night’s slot (I’d be the trailblazer, with no need to compare menus with anyone for fear of overlapping!) and went on to create a spread worthy of the most discerning Hungarian palate. And in a nod to fluffy childhood memories, we played a timeless children’s Chanu-
kah CD, which we paused at the perfect part to serenade Zeidy and Babby as they walked in: There was that telling creak of the door, the trill of happy kids, and then the CD Zeidy boomed: “AH GITTEN CHANUKAH!” There was lots of laughter at that, and our much downsized party commenced. What may have been lacking in fanfare was surpassed by the intimate atmosphere that touched down on our home. That first night of Chanukah was magical. The ambience was close and warm, with the world beginning and ending at our dining room table. Our kids, funnier than ever, loved the double delight of being home, plus the exclusivity of their grandparents’ attention. Zeidy’s lap was free for the taking, and he had ears only for their babbles and songs. And Babby’s stash of nosh and gifts — they were solely for our three tots! To the merry strains of Ah Latkele Hupp, I basked in the warmth of just us. We had my husband’s parents all to ourselves, and we were loving every second. While clearing up later that night, I reflected that once my in-laws’ apartment would be ready and they’d be back to hosting once again, I’d miss the intimate experience we’d been treated to. As it turned out, the experience has indeed been rendered priceless. Today I guard it fiercely in my vault of precious memories. Because oblivious as we all were at the time, two months after that Chanukah came my young and vibrant shver’s fatal clash with the dreaded disease. By Purim, my kids were asking where Zeidy was and why he wasn’t coming back. And this year, as I stare into the Chanukah licht and remember the man whose ahavas Yisrael burned so brightly that it kindled the spirits of all those around him, I’ll thank Hashem for orchestrating the gift of a goodbye party for Zeidy.

PREPARING THE WAX
The amount of wax needed will depend on the size glass you are using and on the style candle you decide to make. First, measure double the desired capacity of the wax chips or beads. Then add one or two colored candles to each batch of wax.
Any of the following options work well • Soy wax chips • Paraffin wax beads • Chopped up tea lights or candles
Colorful Chanukah candles Wicks with sustainer tabs Glass votives Make sure the glasses you use are fire-safe
198 / THE MONSEY VIEW / December 2, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
LETâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S GET MELTING!
PREPARING THE WICK Start by dipping the wick sustainer into hot wax, and then firmly attaching it at the center of the glass bottom. You can also secure the wick perfectly in the center by ordering this great wickcentering device on Amazon.
METHOD 1: MICROWAVE
You will need microwave-safe containers with covers (for kashrus reasons). Fill each container with the desired amount of wax and colored candles. Cover, and set the microwave to two minutes. Remove and stir with a popstick.
METHOD 2: DOUBLE BOILER
Use disposable pans (for kashrus reasons). Fill a larger pan halfway with water. Place over a low flame. Wait until the water boils. Add the desired amount of wax and colored candles to a small pan. Place the pan in the water, and wait until the wax turns to liquid. Use a popstick to stir. You may want to use a tweezer to hold the smaller pan as it may get too hot to hold while stirring. For ! Parties
METHOD 3: HOT PLATE
If you are doing this as a group, you can melt large amounts of wax and keep all the colors on a hot plate so they stay melted. This way, everyone can use the amounts and colors they need as they work.
December 2, 2020 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 199 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484
CREATING YOUR CANDLE
1. Use two forks to hold the glass on a tilt. The glass should be â&#x20AC;&#x153;sittingâ&#x20AC;? on one fork, with the second fork there to hold the glass in place. 2. Pour in the first color. 3. Let it cool for at least 15 minutes. 4. Shift the glass so it sits on the opposite fork. 5. Fill with a second color, and let sit until the wax hardens (another 15 minutes). 6. Place the glass on a flat surface. 7. Fill the remaining part with the third color of your choice. 8. Keep the wick in the center by placing a popstick on the top of the glass.

It had been a few months into a new job, and things were not looking up for Moshe. It was strange to him, since he had taken this new job to solve the things that had been bothering him at his last position, which he’d held for over 20 years. Moshe contacted me to help figure out what was going wrong, and see what he could do so that work would be interesting and exciting again. He had a successful history as a financial manager, and was known for his sharp thinking, innovative ideas, and excellent training programs. With his 60th birthday on the horizon though, he had felt like he needed a change. Work was feeling repetitive, and Moshe didn’t like the stagnant feeling that he was getting from the daily grind. He had decided to look into new opportunities, and when a financial start-up offered him a position, he jumped at the chance to work with a fresh, young, innovative team. It seemed to be just what he needed. The position was remote, which had originally seemed to be a blessing. His wife had converted the guest bedroom into an office space, and the commute had never looked better! As the days turned into weeks though, it was not what Moshe was expecting. Mustering the drive to show up and perform was feeling like drudgery all over again. “It’s strange,” Moshe admitted. “It’s exactly what I was looking for - and there isn’t even anything about the work itself that I can complain about. It is exactly what I thought it would be: new, quick-paced, exciting, and a chance to use my creativity again. But, when I sit down in the new leather chair in the corner of my basement, I just feel stuck there. I can’t figure out what’s wrong!” I’ve seen this happen a number of times, and there are many reasons why a seemingly ‘dream job’ doesn’t feel like it once we get it. After a few meetings with Moshe, we discovered something interesting. He was right that the work itself wasn’t the problem, and that the team and company he was working for wasn’t the problem either. In fact, neither had that been the issue with his last job! The issue was what I call the “Engagement vs. Fulfillment Gap”. It works like this: We all need to be engaged at work. Engagement is when the work we do is aligned with our strengths, and our attention is ‘engaged’ with the work we do. But, this doesn’t necessarily mean that the work provides fulfillment - we can be ‘busy’, but with things that don’t personally fulfill us. That is where the Gap comes in, and we’re left with an empty feeling. The tricky part of this is that what fulfills us can change. For example, a Salesperson may get a feeling of engagement and fulfillment from the ‘chase’ of getting a deal. Later on though, the chase may not do it for them anymore, and the same person gets a sense of fulfillment from mentoring others. In Moshe’s case, although the work was engaging him, it wasn’t what was giving him the fulfillment that it used to. On top of that, when we explored further into the other areas of his life, he shared that there were so many other things that he was interested in focusing on. He had grandchildren he wanted to spend more time with, a morning Daf Yomi shiur that he wanted to join more often, and his wife was waiting for the chance to finally be able to travel together. Although he enjoyed his work, at this point in his life, there were other areas that he got real fulfillment from that his job was holding him back from in many ways. Once Moshe came to that conclusion, the solution was simple. He was ready to start easing into retirement, and having more control over his work schedule. Instead of working a 9-5, becoming a freelancer would give him the flexibility he was missing. It’s interesting. The combination of what we do, when we do it, and how we do it is a balance that keeps changing. When we pay attention to the feeling of dissatisfaction that imbalance brings, we’re able to make changes that bring us to living our most joyful lives. Are you feeling stuck or dissatisfied?

False Conductor This game is a riot! The objective of twisting simple answers to nonsense has reduced many a grown-up to tears of mirth. PLAY! PREP LIST:
A list of simple questions that do not require a yes or no answer. Make up your own, or enjoy this list I used at a party: • What grows on trees? • Name a vegetable. • On Chanukah we light the _____________. • Name a U.S. president. • Where do you sleep at night? • How many days is Chanukah? • Name one person at this party. • Name one low-fat food. • How many siblings do you have? • Where do fish swim? • What’s your name? • What was the Beis Yosef’s Chanukah question? • Men are from _____________.
Game objective: Like the game many of us associate with practicing our times tables, blurt the answer first and travel the most seats. Unlike grade school, however, questions in False Conductor must be answered with a lie. The conductor questions two people at a time, both standing. The first person to answer with something that is absolutely not the truth can move to the next seat and be questioned with the person sitting there. Example: How old are you? Blurt 150, and move a seat if you were first! The defeated player sits down and waits for her turn in the next round. The game continues as pairs of players are questioned and the first ones to answer correctly (or in the case of this game, incorrectly!) move seats. There is no limit to the number of seats a quick-witted player can travel; she can continue from one seat to the next as long as she answers first. This game can go on for as long as you fancy! At the end, everyone counts the number of seats they moved to tally up a winner.
• What color is a NYC taxi? • What’s your address? • Where’s a good place to keep a sheitel? • How much does each prize cost in Oorah’s auction? • When Antiochus himself went to war with the Yidden, what animal did he ride? • What do you use to brush your teeth? • How many sons did Matisyahu have? • Name a creature that flies. • What do we pour into the glasses of the menorah? • How many bedrooms does your home have? • Who is currently the richest person in the world? • Name one type of winter outerwear. • Because of the story with Yehudis, we eat _____________ on Chanukah. • How many corners does a hamentash have? • What number president is Trump? • What color is a banana? • How many seeds are there in a pomegranate? • What is paper made of? • What do you do when you’re hungry?

Mad Libs I will always associate this game with cozy winter afternoons and my older sisters. I think it was Glad that used to include these folded up funnies in packs of plastic bags. After we’d open a box, we’d sit around the table squishing our penmanship into the tiny blanks and laughing at the loony outcomes. I enjoyed Mad Libs so much that I’ve recreated them for a host of parties already. They never disappointed!
This may require the wakeup of your inner storyteller, but it’s so worth it! First write a short story. You might want to do a few to make the game last long enough. Then remove key words and identify their part of speech. Put a blank where the key words were, with their part of speech under the blank. If you don’t feel like writing one, you can use the sample provided.

Going around the table, fill the blanks in your story by asking each person for a word to fill a blank. Of course, don’t share the context of the story until you’re done and have a wacky tale to read out loud!

Object Mania Of course, objects. Because that’s how we leave to Chanukah parties, with our ears ringing with reminders to not forget “your blintzes and grab bags for the kids and an object for the game!” In this particular instance you get to bring two objects, give your short-term memory a whopping workout, and take home some extremely random items.
FUR the Love of COzy e s crav per kid the slip ers envy th and mo
Each participant should bring two random objects from their home. Look around your house to find them; they’re tucked into forgotten corners like your laundry shelves and junk drawer. You’ll be giving them away, so be nice. Here are some objects I remember playing with at a party at work: an air freshener (mine, I didn’t enjoy the smell and was surprised to see my workmates hankering for it), a can of tuna, a comb, a scented thingamajig to hang in the car, a mini sewing kit (I won it and still use it), etc.
th dstoo Houn Band ic Elast
Game objective: Remember what other players are holding as the items change hands at a dizzying pace. To begin, one player at a time holds up her items and names them aloud. Once all objects have been seen and named, they are to be held under the table throughout the game except for when they are in transit to another player. Absolutely no peeking. Let the fun begin! Going around the table, each person can request and receive any one item from another player as long as: 1) they remember which player has the item in question, and 2) this item was not requested in the previous turn. Once an item is requested, a turn must pass before it is requested again. If the player requests an item from the wrong person, she is out of the game and gets to keep whatever’s in her hands at the moment. Example: Shaindy asks Ruchie for the comb. If Ruchie doesn’t have it, Shaindy is out. If she does have it, she gives it to Shaindy, who holds it under the table. If Leah’s turn is next, she cannot ask Shaindy for the comb she just got from Ruchie. But Chany, whose turn comes after Leah’s, can.

Pic ‘n Caption If the notion of drawing makes you run for the hills — don’t. Stick figures are modern art, and the worse you are at drawing a straight line, the more uproarious this game is. PREP LIST: PLAY!
Each player gets a pen and paper and writes a sentence at the top with as vivid imagery as they can muster. Seriously, go bananas with this one. Next, everyone passes • Weird scene their paper to the left, and each player should draw a picture depicting the sentence in mind on the paper they just got. Before passing this paper to the left once again, everyone folds the sentence over, leaving only the picture, which the next person must describe with an appropriate caption. Everyone then folds over the picture so only the caption remains and passes it on. All players must now draw a picture representing the caption they got. These steps are repeated until the sheets are full and there are many tall tales to read aloud! • Paper
Candy Facts This game is light, fun and versatile. Use your creativity to come up with really interesting questions! PLAY! PREP LIST:
A pack of sweets. You’ll need a few different colors, but not too many. See why: A question key that the players will follow, corresponding to the candy colors. For example: Red candy = embarrassing moment. Green candy = an item on your wishlist. Yellow = someone you admire and why. And so on.
Pass around the sweets and urge everyone to take as many as they’d like. Then have a good laugh when you tack up the question key and everyone sees how their indulgence pays off! Start going around the table. Everyone must answer the questions corresponding to the colors and amount of candy they chose. So yes, if a player helped herself to five yellow candies, she’d better have admired that many people!
Enjoy your party prep and remember that the less seriously you take yourself, the grander a time you will have. Ah freilichen Chanukah! 212 / THE MONSEY VIEW / December 2, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

SAYING HALLEL The full Hallel is said on every day of Chanukah. There are several reasons given for this: 1) We light a different number of lights every day, just like on Sukkos, when a different number of korbanos were brought each day. Thus, we say a full Hallel every day of Sukkos, and so too on Chanukah. 2) The miracle renewed itself every day. 3) The Torah reading for each day of Chanukah is about the offering that the Nesi’im brought each day of the Chanukas HaMishkan. Since a different nasi brought a korban each day, we say Hallel every day. There is a machlokes haposkim regarding whether women are also obligated to say a full Hallel. Therefore, to abide by the opinions who are machmir, it is best for women to try saying the full Hallel every day of Chanukah. Ashkenazi women can also make a bracha before beginning Hallel, while Sefardic women should refrain from making the bracha and just say the Hallel itself. OBLIGATION OF WOMEN IN LIGHTING The halacha says that women are also obligated in the lighting of the Chanukah lights, because as mentioned above, the neis happened through Yehudis. Also, they too were saved from the decree of the Yevanim who’d take the women captive on the night before their wedding. However, the minhag is that where there are men around, the men light and not the women. The Chasam Sofer explains that since in the time of Chazal when the mitzvah of hadlakas neiros Chanukah was instituted everyone lit outside, they didn’t want to obligate women to go out and light among the men at night since it would detract from the kavod of women. Today, even though we light indoors, the minhag for women not to light remains in place. However, in a house where there are no men around, a woman must light and make the brachos in order to fulfill her obligation of lighting the candles. DAVENING AFTER LIGHTING The minhag in Klal Yisroel is for women to daven after lighting the Shabbos candles to be zoche to have kids who are talmidei chachamim. The reason for this is similar to that of why we say all types of harachamans that ask for things after Birkas Hamazon, which is that tefillos said at the time of performing a mitzvah are more easily accepted. The reason we daven specifically for kids to become talmidei chachamim is based on the Gemara that says that one who is careful with the mitzvah of ner (lighting with good oil, nice wicks, on time, etc.) will be zoche to have banim talmidei chachamim. Rashi on the Gemara says that this refers to being careful with neiros Chanukah and neiros Shabbos. So, at the time of doing the mitzvah for which the reward is banim talmidei chachamim, it is an auspicious time to say a tefillah of that nature. According to this, it is a segulah to daven for our children to become talmidei chachamim after lighting Chanukah candles. It is also a good time for women to daven that their husbands become talmidei chachamim. USING AND BENEFITING FROM THE LIGHTS One is not allowed to use and benefit from the Chanukah lights. Several reasons are given for this: 1) Because of bizui mitzvah. 2) Because it will look like one lit it for his own use and not for the mitzvah. 3) Since the miracle happened with the Menorah of the Beis Hamikdash, the din is like the light of Beis Hamikdash, which one may not use. Therefore, the minhag is to have a shamash so that if one makes use of the light of the menorah, it will be the light of the shamash, which is kept higher. Today, if electric lights are on, one need not worry, since one is using those lights. However, even with our electric lights, there is still an idea to light the shamash according to Kabbalah.
See Beis Yosef, Orach Chaim 683:1 who brings the Shibulei Haleket.
See Sdei Chemed, asifas dinim, Chanukah 9:2; Rav Eliyashiv zt”l (Kovetz Teshuvos vol. 3 siman 105), Rav Shlomo Zalman Auerbach zt”l (Halichos Shlomo Chanukah 17:6), and the Chazon Ovadia (Chanukah, p. 213) hold they are not obligated, while Rav Wosner zt”l (vol. 1 siman 205 on siman 683) and Rav Moshe Feinstein zt”l (Igros Moshe vol. 1 siman 190) and Rav Ben Tzion Abba Shaul zt”l (Ner Tzion 11:21) hold they are obligated. 2.
Shabbos 23a, Rashi “hayu boso hanes.” See Shulchan Aruch 675:3.
See Mishnah Berurah 675:9.
Chasam Sofer on Shabbos 21b; See Eliyah Rabbah and Mishnah Berurah 671:9, who say that the reason the wife doesn’t light is because ishto kegufo; see also Mishnah Berurah 675:9 in the name of Olas Shmuel and Teshuvos V’Hanhagos vol. 2 siman 342 for other reasons why the minhag is that women don’t light where there are men around. See also Mikra’ei Kodesh, Chanukah siman 14 for a summary of the opinions and minhagim on the matter.
Mishnah Berurah 675:9
See Rabbeinu Bechaya on Shemos 19:3. 7.
See Machatzis Hashekel 263:11.
See Zohar that says the segulah of neir is also for husband to become a talmid chacham. See Kaf Hachaim 263:34 for a nusach of the tefillah.
See Shulchan Aruch 673:1 where he paskens that even tashmish kedushah is assur and brings as “yesh” the opinion that tashmish kedushah is muttar (see Biur Halacha there the machlokes achronim if this is also true of tashmish keva or not). 11.
See Kol Bo, siman 44.

At this time of year, nearly every Yiddishe house features at least one wax-dripped windowsill. But this is far from the main association wax has with Chanukah… At the culmination of a victory over the Yevanim, when our forefathers searched for untainted oil to light the Menorah, it was only when they unearthed the jug and saw its unbroken waxen seal that the festivities really began.
Wax has been used for centuries to authenticate sealed products. Most famously, perhaps, monarchs and royal courts would issue official decrees with their waxen seal stamped on the handwritten orders. (Think the signet ring of Achashverosh.) By the thirteenth century, individuals had their own seals, which they’d use on contracts, deeds and wills. This came in handy at a time when many were illiterate and seals were used in place of signatures. The butchers would sign agreements with a seal bearing the image of a cow, while the baker would sign with one depicting a tuna bagel — though, perhaps without the tuna... Because seals were symbols of power and were used to authenticate a person’s wishes, they were typically destroyed after the owner died to prevent posthumous forgeries.
An estimated three billion pounds of wax are used in North America each year. Because wax is such a great sealant, half of that total amount goes for use in packaging materials!
WHILE HONEY MAY GET ALL THE ATTENTION AS A BEE PRODUCT, DON’T OVERLOOK BEESWAX. TO PRODUCE ONE POUND OF BEESWAX, BEES MUST PRODUCE SIX TO EIGHT POUNDS OF HONEY. CONSIDERING HOW MUCH GOES INTO MAKING HONEY, BEESWAX IS A VALUABLE COMMODITY INDEED! BEESWAX HAS SOME HEALING GRAINS THAT CAN HELP HEAL MINOR SKIN CUTS AND WOUNDS. APPLYING SOME ON THE LIPS IS ALSO ONE OF THE BEST WAYS TO PREVENT THEM FROM GETTING CHAPPED.

Old furniture, sliding doors and jammed windows and drawers can all benefit from wax, as it is an effective wood lubricant. Just rub the wood surfaces with an ordinary candle. A light coat is all it takes!
Ever wonder what you are chewing? One of the base ingredients in chewing gum is actually wax! Paraffin wax is edible, kosher and pareve! It is often added to chocolates to give them a glossy finish and to help them stay solid at room temperature. A coat of carnauba wax, which is derived from Brazilian palm tree leaves, is applied to fruits and vegetables to help preserve and protect them and to keep them shiny.
Before postal reforms, the prohibitive cost of sending a letter was a whopping 25 cents, a small fortune in those days (considering that you could’ve bought five pickles with that sum!). Since postage was based on the number of sheets mailed, and an envelope would have counted as an additional sheet, doubling the cost, letter writers folded their letter and sealed it closed with wax to avoid the extra expense. When the cost of postage was changed to be calculated by weight, a burgeoning envelope industry emerged, but the wax was still used to seal the envelopes. The death knell for sealing wax came only much later, in the 1830s, when pregummed envelope and folding machines were developed. With a couple of licks, a letter could be sealed and sent on its way. Today, wax seals are as unnecessary as handwritten correspondence. Yet, like many old traditions, it is pleasurable to practice, and adds a bit of personal distinction and panache to your communication.
MELT THE WAX. Light the candle and give it a moment to burn. Hold the stick at about a 45-degree angle to your paper, and let the wax drip down. Extinguish the candle.
CREATING A WAX SEAL Supplies needed: • Matches • Waxen candle (colored) • Seal/stamp
STIR AND SHAPE THE WAX. Using the end of the wax stick that has no wick, stir and shape the wax puddle to bring out any air bubbles, give it a uniform thickness, and mold it into the shape and size of your seal. CREATE A MOISTURE BARRIER. If you don’t create a moisture barrier on the seal before you press it into the wax, the hot wax can get stuck on the seal. So breathe, lick or dab the seal on a moistened sponge before plunging it into the wax. PRESS THE SEAL INTO THE WAX. Make sure the letter or design of your seal is right side up. Press your seal firmly into the wax, hold it there for five to seconds as the wax cools and hardens, and then gently remove it. If you meet resistance when trying to pull up the seal, let the wax cool further. USE CARE. You are playing with fire here, so be careful not to hold the flame too close to the paper, and be aware of flaming drips of wax that can drop from the stick. Now send your happy letter on its way!

Hey, what’s going on? What’s happening here? Are you all waiting in line for an audience with the sage?
Didn’t you hear? Today we can ask the sage for anything we wish.
Who would miss such an opportunity?
The sage sat on his armchair, and at his side were two advisers — our friends. They explained to him how important my request is and what it would do for me, and he agreed!
Did he accept your request?
What did you ask for? What did the sage tell you?
232 / THE MONSEY VIEW
How didn’t you hear about it until now?
Did you get what you asked for?
Seriously? I’m getting in line! I also want to ask for something!
It’s so nice that they helped you out.
Yeah, really nice!
The moment is arriving. In just a few minutes I’ll be there…
Oh, I’m waiting for my turn with the sage to ask him what I want…
One, two, three… nine more, and then it’s my turn!
With the sage’s permission, would you allow me to ask for your advisers to leave the room so that only the sage stays here?
My turn, finally!
No! My request will be answered if they leave…
I’ll be alone with the sage, sit in his presence a little! This is the greatest gift! Will you grant me that?
WHAT DOES THIS TELL US? “And Yaakov sent angels.” Yaakov Avinu sent before him the malachim that were created from his mitzvos. We wonder: Why did he send them? They could have helped him and advocated for him so he would receive reward for his mitzvos. Yaakov wanted to be alone with Hakadosh Baruch Hu. This was all he wanted. For him, this was the greatest reward he could have ever received. (The Sovraner Rebbe)

Uh… hmm…. The men’s job is to help you. They may advise me to accept your request by explaining to me how important it is… Wouldn’t it be a shame if they leave?
