Dear Neighbor, You called me late one night this week and spoke in a hushed voice. You seemed so unsure of yourself, as you told me that your husband lost his job at the beginning of Corona and hasn't brought in any money in the past 10 months. You told me that your husband doesn't know you're calling, but you can't manage to go on the way things are. When I asked your name, you hung up. Please call back. I assure you that our call will remain confidential. I will discuss it with no one. And I mean no one. Please know that you are not alone, and your husband has done nothing wrong. You can't imagine how many calls like this I receive. Concerned members of the community have given us funds so that we can discreetly help you. As for your husband, can you please encourage him to call us? In the past 3 months, we have Boruch Hashem placed 35 people in good jobs. We may know of the right job for him, but we need to speak to him in order to help him. I urge you to contact me as soon as possible. I don't know who you are, but I'm waiting for your call. Please.

LIFE’S SIMPLE JOYS (Re: Eight Nights of Nostalgic Delights, Issue 277) Reading about Miriam K.’s joy in savoring every one of those Klik balls brought a smile to my face — and, I confess, a longing in my heart to those simple joys of once upon. Which child today would find such delight in a bag of chocolate? Our generation is so spoiled that some of today’s kids are taking bags full of pricey chocolates and snacks to school each day. And it does not make them any more happy; on the contrary. Nothing is a delight anymore. Not even a dreidel filled with candy — they get several of them over yom tov. And it’s the same when it comes to a brand-new toy or game. Just recently, when I was looking for Chanukah gifts for my grandchildren, I overheard another shopper complaining how hard it is to choose gifts for kids who have everything. And she is so right. Can we bring the glory back? We can’t turn the clock back or fight the norms, but perhaps we can keep in mind that overindulging children is only making them more spoiled and less happy.

BITE-SIZE GOODNESS (Re: Flavors A-Pound, Issue 275) Thank you for the wonderful recipes each week! I’d like to share that I used the pound cake recipe to make cupcakes. I made half the recipe, and it yielded about twenty cupcakes. They were delicious with the marble addition and, as written, tasted bakery-worthy! Ah freilichen Chanukah to all. Hoping to see the Menorah being lit in Yerushalayim! C.G.

If your nights wouldn’t have to look this way... Sounds like a dream?

Let’s make it happen!

(Re: Food Section) I had a really busy week recently. Three times it was getting really close to suppertime, and all I had was a defrosted tray of protein. On the first night, when I had some salmon on the counter, Chana Rivky Spitzer’s salmon pizza maker supper saved the day. In 25 minutes it was ready to serve, and it was just delicious. On the second night, my defrosted tray of ground chicken was quickly turned into Miriam Pessy Wercberger’s sloppy joe wraps. They were a great treat! On the third day it was Miriam Pessy to the rescue again, when I quickly grilled the chicken fingers as per her instructions. They were ready before my kids could complain, “Mommy I’m hungry,” and I served it alongside some rice and cut-up veggies. Thanks to these great ideas, I was able to feed my family in style even during such a hectic week. And speaking of your food section, this week’s party, all whimsy and soft, was such a delight to look at! These mini blinis look delicious, and I look forward to trying them. R.P.

KUDOS FROM A CUSTOMER I would like to take the opportunity to thank that kind saleslady from Sock Shoppe for being so caring and going out of her way to deliver my lost order to my door. It was hard to track down since it had a wrong phone number, but it arrived to me nonetheless! Let’s keep supporting our local businesses. There is nothing like shopping in a family atmosphere where store owners and salespeople really care about their customers. Grateful

YOUR VOICE SUPPLY AND DEMAND

As a mother who probably supports taxi companies all on her own, I’d like to tell all those other mothers waiting outside large shopping centers come 2:45 p.m.: I get you. I’m also waiting anxiously for that taxi to show up. My eyes are also glued to my watch, estimating projected traffic and tensely watching the tick-tock of the clock with the hope that I’ll make my children’s bus. And I’m also hoping, hoping that my fellow mothers waiting nearby will be as fair as I try to be and resist the urge to snatch the taxi I called. Please, mothers, we’re all in this together. I called a taxi. Please do the same. And if you didn’t call a car just yet, in the hope of finding one outside, please don’t sit into mine. Racing the Clock

WEEK 13:

ABOVE AND BEYOND A common thread running through millennia of Jewish civilization is the lack of available real estate. Whether Yidden were confined to densely populated areas as a result of either government edicts, the desire to be in close proximity to necessary services, or simply as a result of the townscape, finding large freestanding structures for a beis knesses has been, and often remains, a rather daunting challenge. This dilemma has given us the concept of basement shuls — rooms repurposed as a beis knesses within houses or other multipurpose structures. Although affording a much-needed option, these setups can often be problematic. The Shulchan Aruch rules[1] that we are to be exceedingly careful in how we treat the space above a beis knesses. The reasoning for this is twofold. First, demeaning activity may be a show of disrespect to the shul below. Second, as has been mentioned previously, our shuls are miniature versions of the Beis Hamikdash and therefore have numerous halachos modeled after the Beis Hamikdash itself. Just as the attic space above the main Beis Hamikdash sanctum was imbued with kedusha, it is quite possible that the floors above the beis knesses take on the elevated kedusha of the beis knesses itself. What does this mean, practically? In delineating what is and isn’t permitted, activities fall into three general categories: standard activities, such as random conversation; disrespectfully mundane activities, such as sleeping; and demeaning activities, such as using the bathroom. As per the Shulchan Aruch and Mishnah Berurah, the following guidelines emerge: 1. Standard Activities: It is unclear if standard activities — such as eating, drinking or conducting business discussions — are prohibited.[2] In regard


to this category, the Mishnah Berurah suggests relying on a teshuvah from the Rambam stating that the issue at hand is only in regard to the space directly above the aron kodesh, whereas standard activities over other areas of the beis knesses would be permitted. 2. Disrespectfully Mundane Activities: It is forbidden to sleep on the floor space above the beis knesses on a regular basis. The implication is that sleep would be permitted on random irregular occasions. Other activities in this category, such as doing laundry, are forbidden even on occasional instances.[3] 3. Demeaning Activities: Generally including anything malodorous or repulsive, such as maintaining a bathroom, these activities are disrespectful of the shul below, even if unintended. As such, they are prohibited in any space over the beis knesses.[4]

“shomer nafsho yirchak meihem — one who values his life should stay far from such things.” The Taz writes how he himself suffered tremendous personal tragedy, which he attributed to his living above a shul, and the Knesses Hagedolah writes that his observations have shown that all who did this met with terrible loss. And yet, we have so many instances of such basement shuls. How are these justified? Generally, the answer hinges on the realities of available choices. Often, there simply wasn’t another feasible option. In these cases, there are sufficient grounds on which to rely. As mentioned, residences created prior to or simultaneously with the shul are technically free of kedusha. In addition, we have the aforementioned Rambam that sees the issue specifically above the aron kodesh. Additionally, there are some, though not all, who maintain that only the floor immediately above the shul is subject to these regulations, whereas upper floors are unrestricted. The Mishnah Berurah himself opines that the places that had shuls below residences did so only on a temporary basis. The Steipler, in a letter addressing the historic prevalence of these shuls, writes “Kvar darshu bah rabbim,” that they viewed this allowance as something that had already become a “well-trodden path,” and “shomer pesa’im Hashem — Hashem watches over the foolhardy.”[7] It can be said that doing so is certainly far from ideal and should most definitely be avoided,[8] although if faced with no viable alternative there is certainly on what to rely. Two additional notes:

It emerges, then, that one wishing to reside on the floor above the beis knesses can do so only if there are no bedrooms, laundry rooms or bathrooms (or even diaper changing and the like) above the beis knesses.[5] Furthermore, no activity whatsoever would be permitted above the area of the aron kodesh, except for actual tefillah and Torah study. That said, one important factor significantly impacts the halacha. The potential ability of the kedusha of the beis knesses to affect upper stories is limited to when the beis knesses was the original building occupant. If, as is common in many apartment or office buildings, the upper tenants preceded • Although there are tolerances in certain regards for or even arrived at the same time as the beis knesses, the upper living in the floor above, the roof of a shul carries an floor(s) would not be imbued with kedusha. This would mean that standard activities are certainly permitted. Sleeping and other disrespectfully mundane activities would be permitted Over the past 30 years or so, the Mirrer Yeshiva in Yerushalayim has as well. Still, demeaning activities would undergone meteoric expansion. Under the leadership of Harav Nosremain prohibited.[6] son Tzvi Finkel, zt”l, building after building was constructed, including This is all, however, from a purely halnew satellites in Ramat Shlomo and Brachfeld. These buildings, aside achic angle. Many sources speak out quite strongly against residing above a beis from seating thousands throughout numerous batei midrash, also knesses, warning of serious risk of danger house dining and dormitory facilities. A common feature throughout to those who do so. The sanctity of a shul these buildings is that the dormitory and dining rooms occupy the is a serious matter, and any disregard lower floors. The beis midrash is always on the top floor. can cause tremendous harm. Indeed, the Mishnah Berurah concludes by writing,

IN SUMMATION: 1. It is forbidden to sleep on a regular basis or to engage in any disrespectful activities on the floor above the beis knesses. Over the Aron HaKodesh itself, nothing at all is permitted except learning or davening. However, if the shul did not precede the residences, only truly demeaning activities, such as maintaining a bathroom (or changing diapers), would be prohibited. 2. The Mishnah Berurah and earlier poskim strongly urge avoiding living above a shul whenever possible. Even in a scenario where it is legally permitted, they warn of serious potential for danger to those living there.

entirely different classification. [9] As an open and viewable area, and one easily associated with the shul below, mundane activities are prohibited. This includes spreading things out to dry. • The discussion above pertains to upper floors. What about floors below the shul? Following the model of the Beis Hamikdash, we have our answer. The subterranean areas of the Mikdash, including numerous tunnels and rooms, bore no kedusha. Our shuls, too, will not cause any kedusha to the floors below. It is with this in mind that it is common practice to have bathrooms and/or a mikvah below the beis knesses, even though these fall within the category of demeaning activities.

Coffee Table Used to End Chanukah Rampage Becomes Menorah Stand The marble-topped table that was thrown at the machete-wielding man who turned a Chanukah celebration into a night of terror last December has been transformed into a menorah stand, memorializing a modern-day neis that took place in the heart of Monsey. Yoseph Gluck was hailed as a hero for flinging the coffee table at 37-year-old Grafton Thomas, who burst into Rabbi Chaim Leibish Rottenberg’s Forshay home on the seventh night of Chanukah, ultimately ending the shocking 2019 bloodbath that left four injured and claimed the life of 72-year-old Yosef Neumann three months later. Pictures of the table emerged in news reports after the attack, its pink marble top broken in half and its legs completely detached, but according to Oizrim’s Rabbi Yisroel Kahan, Gluck gathered up the remains of the ruined table last year, determined to turn them into something meaningful. The table was pieced back together and placed into a glass topped wooden frame with triangular-bottomed marble panels on each side, the dreidel motif echoed by the words “neis gadol haya po,” written in gold letters.

The table is currently being used to hold the large menorah on display in Rabbi Rottenberg’s shul in front of the aron kodesh, a poignant reminder of the Chanukah miracle that saw dozens saved from harm.

False Alarm as Target and Bingo Evacuated in Chanukah Night Bomb Scare A Chanukah night bomb scare and hostage situation at the Spring Valley Marketplace Target store turned out to be a hoax. The Spring Valley Police Department reported that they received a call at 5:35 p.m. on the first night of Chanukah from someone claiming to be holding multiple hostages who said they had placed explosives throughout the store. Multiple police officers from several agencies were dispatched to the area, with everyone in Target, Bingo and nearby stores cleared from the scene. Police searched Target with the aid of bomb-sniffing dogs brought in from law enforcement agencies throughout the state, and after finding no evidence of danger of any kind, reopened the store and the nearby area to pedestrians, shoppers and vehicular traffic. Among those who responded to the scene were the Spring Valley, Ramapo, Clarkstown, South Nyack, Grandview and MTA police departments, Rockland County Sheriff’s Office, New York State Police, FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Spring Valley Fire Department, Spring Hill Community Ambulance Corps, and Rockland County Paramedic Services.

A Year Later, Jersey City Massacre Victims Remembered It was a somber remembrance in Jersey City, marking a year since the horrific rampage that took the lives of three people in a kosher grocery as well as a local police officer. ABC News reported that a ceremonial gathering took place on Thursday in the cemetery where Detective Joe Seals was gunned down by 47-year-old David Nathaniel Anderson and 50-year-old Francine Graham. A small granite memorial was placed at the spot where Seals was killed bearing the words “Loving Son, Father, Brother and Friend to All.” A statement released by Governor Phil Murphy noted

that the December 10th anniversary coincided with the first night of Chanukah. “It is my fervent hope that the light of the menorah also leads our work to seek out and remove hate, in all of its forms, wherever it lurks,” Murphy said. “This is not an easy task, but as in our fight against COVID, we can win it if we all work together. Remember that Hanukkah is the story of light overcoming darkness despite insurmountable odds. Its meaning is universal. It is timeless and it is deeply personal. May the memory of those lost on that day remain a blessing.” Attorney General Gurbir Grewal expressed his hope for solidarity in the face of tragedy. “Our hearts are heavy today and with Jersey City as we mourn one of the darkest days in our state’s history and the innocent lives we lost a year ago,” said Grewal. “Let’s honor them and their memories by standing up together against anti-Semitism and hate in all of its ugly forms.”

It was a picturesque moment last week near the Statue of Liberty as a humpback whale swam close to the iconic landmark in New York Harbor, flipping its tail and dazzling onlookers. CBS News reported that the whale was estimated to be approximately 40 feet long and surfaced roughly once a minute as it made its way past the city’s shores on December 8. According to Travel + Leisure, the whale had also been sighted and photographed on Monday evening as it swam the waters near Midtown. The city’s Department of Parks and Recreation posted footage of the whale, noting that sightings have increased in recent years because of improvements in local water quality and a sizable amount of food sources. Just three whales were spotted in the area in 2011, a number that climbed to more than ten times that amount last year.

929-600-9900 TESTIMONIAL I was suffering from severe chronic headaches. I saw many different specialists and tried many medicines but I saw no relief. 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.

CHAPTER ELEVEN RECAP: Osher

admits to Reb Elazar that he has not told his parents where he is and resists when Reb Elazar wishes to inform them of his whereabouts. Zahava visits a discouraged Ariella and tries to cheer her up, and they discuss Ariella’s trip to Belgium.

“A

riella!” Lakey exclaimed. “So good to see you! You haven’t been here for two days already!” “That’s right,” Ariella said tonelessly. “It’s fine — you seem to have managed without me.” “Would you like some tea? You’re very hoarse again.” Ariella looked at her sister gratefully. “Yes, thanks,” she said quietly, and sank into a chair, exhausted. “I’m thinking about going away.” “Going away? Where to?” Lakey hung the milchig dishtowel on the hook. “I don’t know.” “Will you take me with you?” Lakey asked mischievously. “Sounds like a magical place, this ‘I don’t know.’” “You have school.” “And you have work.” “My students can wait a bit,” Ariella said dismissively. “That’s not exactly true,” Lakey said. “You teach about six girls a day, five days a week. So out of all of those, aren’t there always some who have tests coming up? The accordian lessons are one thing; you can always leave the girls some instructions about what to practice when you’re not here. But math?” “Well, they managed when I was in Belgium. They’ll find substitutes or whatever.”

“That was only for ten days, and as it was, it was hard for them. I know for a fact that Shulamis Kovner, who’s in my class, really struggled without you.” “And who told you that it’ll be more than ten days this time?” Ariella chuckled, then coughed. “Maybe I’m planning to go away for just a day and a half?” “True,” Lakey conceded with a smile. “But I don’t know why… your tone just tells me that you want to go away for at least three months.” “Right on target, Lakey,” Ariella said. “I really do want to go away for three months.” The door to the laundry room opened. “Ariella, welcome!” their mother greeted her oldest. “How are you doing? I see Lakey made you some tea.” “Yes, and it’s hot and delicious.” “With half a teaspoon of vanilla extract,” her sister added, revealing the secret ingredient. “Ariella, can you explain something in math to me?” “Sure, bring me the book.” Mrs. Ehrenbaum waited until her younger daughter disappeared into the other room, and then asked in a low tone, “Tell me, Ariella, have you ever heard of Reiness, from Acco?” Ariella looked into her teacup. “Mommy, I really have no energy for this now,” she said quietly. “Oy, sorry, it’s not a shidduch. It’s about Osher.” Ariella raised her eyes. “Oh, I’m so preoccupied with my own life. Reiness from Acco? Hmm… I don’t think I’ve ever heard of him. I don’t think I know of anyone who lives in Acco.” “There’s a small frum community in Acco, but we don’t really know anyone there, so we can’t even found out much about this Reiness person.” “Osher gave you the name?” “No, Tatty received a phone call from someone who introduced himself as Elazar Reiness. He said he has a

small yeshivah for a group of boys, and Osher has joined them. He sounded like a serious person, a shomer Torah u’mitzvos, but he didn’t speak for long, so Tatty wasn’t able to figure out too much more. He must be someone who deals with struggling kids; the question is…” She fell silent. Ariella’s forehead creased. “Did he say anything else?” “That when we speak to Osher, we should not tell him, or even hint to him, that he spoke to us. He apolo-

“It came up as an ‘Out of Area’ call.” “Hmm. Do you think they blocked the number on purpose?” Mommy smiled, with a trace of guilt. “That’s exactly what I did when I tried to call the number I got from directory assistance; I called from a friend’s cell phone, so that they — or Osher — should not realize that I called. There’s something a bit nervewracking about this whole story, don’t you think?” Ariella put her empty cup in the milchig sink and turned on the water. The steady stream of water was soothing on her fingers. “Do you remember my friend Shifra? She lives in Haifa today. I’ll try to pick her brain a little.”

Ariella looked into her teacup. “Mommy, I really have no energy for this now,” she said quietly.

gized for the aggravation caused to us by our not knowing where Osher was all this time, but said that perhaps it would be better if we didn’t call there if it wasn’t urgent, as long as Osher doesn’t contact us and give us all the details.” “In the north…” Ariella whispered. “I called directory assistance. There’s one Reiness in Acco. Elazar and Sarah. I decided that the fact that I don’t know enough details about my son right now is urgent, so I called them myself.” “Nu?” “There was no answer. What’s interesting is that the same name also appears in Haifa, under the same number.” “What does Tatty say?” Ariella asked, after processing for a minute. “That we should try to find out what kind of place it is.” “Did he leave Tatty a cell number?” “No, the whole call was so quick that Tatty didn’t even think of asking him for his number.” “And the number didn’t come up on the caller ID?”

*****

“Sarah Reiness?” Shifra was as to-the-point as ever. “You mean the speech therapist? Speaking of which, I didn’t even recognize your voice until you introduced yourself.” “What? Oh, it’s because I’m hoarse… It gets worse when I’m stressed.” Ariella didn’t know why she was sharing this information. Perhaps because of Shifra’s apparent indifference. “I’m asking about her in general, about her family, her husband.” “Oh, I don’t know them.” Shifra had never been nosy. More than that, she wasn’t the type to be curious about anything that did not directly relate to her. If she was asked about something — curiosity-provoking as the question might be — she generally answered and then moved on, without delving too much into why the person might be asking the question. Ariella was supremely grateful for this; she did not feel up to being cross-examined right now. “And Sarah? Do you know her?” “I’ve just heard about her. She’s supposed to be a very successful speech therapist.” “Speech therapist,” Ariella echoed.

“Can you check something out for me?” “Sure. What?” “If it’s true that the Reinesses moved to Acco.” “Sure, I can check.” “Thanks.” Shifra may have been the indifferent type, but she was also very efficient. A few hours later, she called Ariella, who had just bid goodbye to one of her accordion students. “Hi, Ariella.” “Shifra, how are you?” “Baruch Hashem, good. So, I found out about Sarah Reiness for you.” “Oh, you did? Thank you so much.” Ariella walked into the kitchen to peel an apple for herself. “It seems they did move to Acco. It’s not clear why. But she continues to come to her clinic in Haifa twice a week.” “What type of person is she? This is all l’toeles, by the way.” Where was the peeler? “Well, she’s chareidi. And American.” “Is her husband also American?” “I don’t know, I didn’t ask.” “Did you find out anything about her husband?” “Nothing special. The person I asked said that her husband knows Sarah Reiness’ husband only by face. He’s on the quiet side, it seems.” “Quiet…” Ariella knitted her eyebrows. “Yes. This person didn’t live near the Reinesses, and they didn’t daven in the same place, either. So she doesn’t really know them.” “Does she know if the Reinesses are Litvish? Chassidish?” “They’re Litvish.” “I see. And they still can’t tell you anything about the guy’s personality, other than that he’s quiet?” “No, her husband doesn’t know him.” “And why did they move to Acco?” “She doesn’t know.”


Ariella thanked her friend again and hung up. “Doesn’t sound like much,” she said to her apple, then made a bracha and took a bite. She hadn’t found the peeler, so she ate the apple with its peel. Her mother, who went walking with her late that evening, looked and sounded much more concerned. “Did you find out anything about this Reiness, Ariella?” “Just a little,” her daughter replied. “Me too. From all the phone calls I made, I only got to someone who knows of them a little. She’s from Yerushalayim and doesn’t know them personally at all, but there’s a boy from

her block who went to learn at this Reiness’ yeshivah.” She sighed. “The welfare services just took him away from there, and it wasn’t so simple.”

Osher: Yeruchem left today. He didn’t want to go, but he didn’t have a choice. His family didn’t want him to stay here, and Reb Elazar told him that he had to obey them. I’m not sure who the “they” are, because Yeruchem doesn’t have parents. He grew up with a foster family. It’s a sad story, and I don’t really know too many details, but the bottom line is,

they didn’t give him the right to decide about this. He’s only thirteen and a half. I think he cried a lot before he left. I didn’t ask him anything, or even offer him a tissue, because I know that people don’t like it when others show that they know that they were crying. So I stayed quiet. The guy who came for him, Gad Shimoni, or something like that, spoke to Yeruchem for a little while. Then he spoke again to Reb Elazar, and then he went back to his car and waited there until Yeruchem came downstairs with his little suitcase. Yeruchem spoke to Reb Elazar for a few minutes, and then he went

into Shimoni’s car, and they drove off. And that was it. Obviously, it would have been better if Yeruchem would have stayed here. This Shimoni is secular, and while it’s true that he was just the official proxy charged with bringing Yeruchem back to his foster family, who are fine people, the fact that he got involved in taking Yeruchem out of our yeshivah doesn’t say good things. Because I think Yeruchem was happy here. I am not yet sure if I’m happy here. Whenever I come to a new place, it takes me a long time to decide if it is good for me or not. (Besides the yeshivah I went to after eighth grade; after five weeks there, before I could even decide anything, they already decided that I was not for them. But I’m not angry at them, because I think they were right.) So now it will also take me time to decide. But Yeruchem did like it here very much. You could see that. After he left, we went to eat supper. Reb Elazar didn’t eat with us, though. He just kept walking up and down the front yard, gazing at the sea. He looked very sad and disappointed. I finished eating and went out to him. I tried to find the right words. I wanted to tell him that there were lots of other boys who still needed him. But I couldn’t figure out if it was the right thing to say or not. “Why did they take Yeruchem away?” I finally asked. “Because this isn’t the place for him,” he said quietly. “And they’re right about that. He’s too young, and we don’t have a real dormitory here. Also, it’s not an official educational institution.” “It’s not an educational institution at all,” I said. “Is that what you think?” “It’s not an ‘educational institu-

tion’,” I explained. “It’s not a yeshivah where people learn all the time, or even a cheder that has lessons. We have a Mishnayos shiur after davening in the morning. And after lunch and carpentry, we have a Gemara shiur. And then, in the late afternoon, you teach us Mesillas Yesharim, and a little bit of parsha in the evening. Wow, Rebbi, you actually teach us a ton, but we sit down for such a short amount of time for each shiur!” Reb Elazar smiled. “I try,” he said. “What, to teach us a lot? Or to keep

out for Yeruchem. His family said they will look into it.” Some of the other boys joined us, and we all went down to the water. We sat on the sand and sang a bit with the accordion. I spent some time walking around the others and studying the tracks my feet made in the sand. I drew a whole circle of holes in the sand, and every so often, I joined the singing. Suddenly someone arrived, dragging his feet. “Nechemiah!” Reb Elazar rose to greet his son. “How are you? Is everything okay?” “Baruch Hashem. I just have a very, very, very bad cold.” He sneezed three times. “And I have a little fever.” “I believe you!” His father laughed. “But you need to be in bed now, Nechemiah, not on the beach.” “Yes, but Mommy’s not home,” Nechemiah said. He sounded like a little boy. “And there are lots of her things on my bed, and a new painting that’s still wet. So I came to see if she’s here, because I don’t know where to put everything.” “Mommy is working in Haifa today,” Reb Elazar reminded him. “But you belong in a warm bed, with a hot drink.” Even before Reb Elazar finished brushing the sand off his pants, I spoke up. “Rebbi, I’ll go with Nechemiah. He can sleep in Yeruchem’s bed; I have clean linen for him. And I know how to make very good tea.” I saw Reb Elazar deliberating. He wanted to be a good father to his son, but he didn’t want to leave all of us alone on the beach. “Thank you very much, Osher,” he said finally, as he sat back down. “We’ll be back soon, okay? Don’t worry, Nechemiah — I’m leaving you in very good hands!” “I’m not worried at all,” Nechemiah said, and flashed me a watery smile.

I suddenly felt very sad. For Yeruchem. For myself. For the world trying to put us into boxes, even if we needed to be cut into several pieces in order to fit inside.

the shiurim short?” He chuckled, but didn’t answer. I joined in his laughter. He has this warm, contagious type of laugh. Then I went back to the topic of Yeruchem. “So if they’re right about this not being the best kind of ‘yeshivah’ for Yeruchem, then why did you let him come here in the first place? When those officials began coming and saying it wasn’t the right place for him, why didn’t you just tell them they were right, and send him back to Yerushalayim?” “Because as much as it wasn’t the best idea for him to be here, they haven’t yet found another, better place for him.” “So where will he go now?” I suddenly felt very sad. For Yeruchem. For myself. For the world trying to put us into boxes, even if we needed to be cut into several pieces in order to fit inside. “I don’t know, exactly. I spoke to a friend of mine who has a yeshivah ketanah in Yerushalayim. Maybe there, with special supervision, it will work

Electoral College Votes to Elect Joe Biden THE PULSE: On Monday, the Electoral College convened to cast their votes for the United States’ next president. Electors usually gather in their respective state capitals to cast their ballots; however, due to COVID-19, some states such as Nevada had their electors meet and cast their votes electronically. Arizona did not disclose its Electoral College location due to fears of demonstrators disrupting the proceedings. There were no faithless electors in this election, and each elector voted for his designated candidate. At 5:27 p.m., California announced that Biden had secured its 55 electoral votes, putting Biden past the 270 votes required for victory. In

88 / THE MONSEY VIEW / December 16, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

the final tally, Joe Biden garnered 306 votes to Donald Trump’s 232. Each state will send its totals to Washington, where Congress will tally the vote on January 6. Once the calculations are complete, the vice president officially announces the winner. THE IMPACT: President Trump and his allies attempt-

ed to get state legislatures to appoint Trump supporters as their representatives to the Electoral College. Courts and state officials rejected these attempts. In a last-ditch effort, Texas AG Ken Paxton appealed to the Supreme Court to overturn the results in Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Georgia, and direct the state legislators to appoint a new slate of electors. Even though the lawsuit garnered support from seventeen Republican attorney generals and over a hundred Republican mem-


bers of the House of Representatives, the court refused to hear the case. The court found that Texas did not have legal standing to bring the case. Court challenges to the official election results now appear to have reached a dead end. However, Congressman Mo Brooks of Alabama is promising to challenge the Electoral College vote totals in Congress on January 6. Brooks will need a senator to join his challenge, and should he succeed, Congress will be required to consider his challenge for up to two hours. It is unlikely that any challenge will be sustained as Democrats control the House and several Republican senators have already recognized Biden as president-elect. On Monday evening, the Senate’s number-two Republican senator, Sen. John Thune (R-ND), said it’s time to declare Joe Biden as president-elect.

Representative Paul Mitchell Quits the Republican Party THE PULSE: Republican representative Paul Mitchell (R-MI) announced that he is leaving the Republican Party and will be identifying as an Independent. Mitchell is upset that Republican Party leaders have attempted to delegitimize the election. In a statement, Mitchell said that he supported Trump on policy but that “one must be willing to accept winning and losing with grace and maturity.” He wrote that “This party has to stand up for democracy first, for our Constitution first and not political considerations. It’s not about a candidate. It’s not simply for raw political power, and that’s what I feel is going on, and I’ve had enough.” THE IMPACT: Mitchell plans to retire from Congress at the end of this term, so his action’s impact will be limited. Mitchell recognized that his act was mostly symbolic but said that, nevertheless, “symbols matter.”

President Trump Announces Israel and Morocco Peace Deal THE PULSE: President Trump announced that Moroc-

co and Israel have agreed to normalize relations. This agreement builds on the impressive successes of the Trump administration’s Abraham Accords Peace Agreements. Morocco is the fourth country in recent months to announce the normalization of relations with Israel. The Morrocco deal follows on the heels of agreements with the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Sudan. Morocco was home to a large Jewish population for hundreds of years, and today it still has a small Jewish community of a few thousand members. The king of Morocco retains the service of a Jewish adviser. Morocco has had a long clandestine relationship with Israel. It was helpful to Israel in the run-up to the 1967 Six-Day War, and during

the war, Morocco protected its Jewish inhabitants from angry Arab mobs. (In the 1980s, I would frequently fly Royal Air Maroc on its Montreal-NY route and was always warmly welcomed with a “Salam Alaikum’’ by the pilots and staff.) CONTROVERSY: In exchange for reaching a public agreement with Israel, the United States agreed to recognize Moroccan sovereignty over the disputed area of Western Sahara. The area is contested by the local Sahrawi people who refuse to acknowledge Morrocan control over their region. The recognition of Moroccan sovereignty over Western Sahara has received much criticism as it is considered disputed by the international community. Republican Senator Jim Inhofe criticized the administration’s decision. He said he was “saddened that the rights of the Western Sahara people have been traded away” and that “this deal [could have been made] without trading the rights of a voiceless people.” Inhofe is a strong supporter of the Polisario Front, a rebel group aligned with the Sahrawi liberation movement aiming to end Western Sahara’s Moroccan occupation. IMPACT: Israel, Morocco, the U.S. and the Trump administration all gain from this deal. Israel gains in the diplomatic arena and further isolates the Palestinians. Morocco gains recognition of its claims in Western Sahara, and President Trump gains yet another impressive Middle East diplomatic achievement. The Trump doctrine has proven the value and effectiveness of transactional diplomacy. Trump’s diplomacy has not focused primarily on resolving the parties’ outstanding issues like the Israeli-Egyptian Camp David Accords did. Instead, it grants the parties mostly unrelated gains in exchange for peace. The Trump administration agreed to approve advanced armed sales to the United Arab Emirates. It agreed to remove Sudan from state sponsors of terror and provide it with legal protection from lawsuits. It recognized Moroccan sovereignty in disputed areas. These actions were all agreed to in exchange for peace with Israel. A test for the resilience of Trump’s transactional diplomacy will be Sudan. Many members of Congress are strongly opposed to providing Sudan with immunity from 9/11 litigation. This could put the entire normalization deal in jeopardy. Trump has received praise for the Abraham Accords from the incoming Biden National Security team. However, it is unlikely that they will agree to take positions at odds with the international community to further such agreements. Morocco likely recognized that the Trump administration’s waning days presented the best chance to achieve the deal on terms that they would find most amicable. The work of President Trump and his envoy Jared Kushner on furthering Israel’s diplomatic standing in the Middle East is a true testament to the commitment that this administration has had to strengthen and promote the Israeli-American relationship.

HOW DO YOU FIND THE PERFECT GIFT FUR HIM?


Astronomers, astrologers and even amateurs are all abuzz about the great conjunction that will be taking place on Monday, December 21. What is it, how can we see it, and what, if anything, does it mean to us Yidden? Let us be your guiding star as we explain this rare and exciting occurrence.

BY: Y. BLOOMING Many of the mind-blowing details about the universe can be so beyond our comprehension that they don’t even seem real: Unimaginable speeds, staggeringly high or low temperatures, light years counted with a bunch of zeros at the end, and speeds and forces we can’t wrap our minds around. When we get a chance to observe the phenomena of space with our own eyes — like during the 2017 solar eclipse — we are humbled to catch a glimpse of niflaos haBorei in action, and fascinated to see it come alive in a most relatable fashion. Next week Monday evening (December 21), stargazers all around the world will be treated to a “great conjunction” (called hamachberes hagedolah in seforim). During this time, the planets of Saturn and Jupiter will almost appear as one large shining light in the evening sky, as their orbits cause them to cross very

close to each other from our vantage point on Earth. As we all know, the sun’s orbit takes a year — 365 and a quarter days. But each planet travels at its own speed, and those farther from the sun traverse a much larger circle. Jupiter’s orbit takes twelve Earth years to complete and Saturn’s takes 30 years. Approximately every twenty years, their orbits align, and this is called a great conjunction. Why this happens can be understood intuitively utilizing some grade school math and finding a common denominator: In each 60-year period, Jupiter completes five orbits and Saturn just two. This means that three times in 60 years (or once every 20 years) Jupiter must pass Saturn on its leisurely stroll on the path of its orbit. Conjunctions of celestial bodies are quite common, but when it involves the two largest planets in our solar system it is called a great conjunction. So what makes this year’s event so unique? Well, the orbits don’t happen on a two-dimensional piece of paper, and the planets almost never overlap perfectly from our viewpoint. If we measure the horizon in degrees

92 / THE MONSEY VIEW / December 16, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


of a circle, this year’s great conjunction will see the planets separated by just 0.1 of a degree (about a fifth of the moon’s width). The last time they appeared so close was in 1623, but back then the planets were much closer to the sun, which made observing it difficult. This year is the first time since 1226 that we will be able to see the planets aligned so closely! It has to be noted that the planets will not actually be that close. The distance between them will be over 400 million miles — nearly four and a half times as far as we are from the sun — but in this case, our perspective is what really matters.

HOW TO SEE IT The time to see this phenomenon is in the hour right after sunset before the planets sink beneath the horizon. The joint planets will be low in the sky when looking in a southwestern direction, not far from where the sun sets and lower and to the right of the moon in the evening sky (in Monsey look toward the direction of the New Jersey border). Unlike the twinkling stars in the sky, the light of these planets will be a fixed point of strong light. Since the event is low on the horizon, you will need open space without buildings or other obstacles in order to observe it. Jupiter is slightly larger and much closer, so it will be the larger of the two stars (assuming you are able to make out the two independently with the naked eye or binoculars). We should note that you can already see what the fuss is

all about because the planets are already very close and getting closer. The same will be true for a while after the 21st as they begin to slowly drift apart.

WHAT IT MEANS A number of Kadmonim, like the Ibn Ezra and the Abarbanel, write extensively about the astrological meanings of these great conjunctions. Their primary focus is on where in the sky — under which mazal, or constellation — the event takes place. In the world of astrology there are groups of stars forming patterns in the sky that affect events occurring in those parts of the horizon (the mazal of each month is based on the sun’s path during that time of year). According to these writings, not all great conjunctions are created equal. There are some that begin a 60-year or 240-year cycle that carry more significant meaning; others that kick off a 960-year cycle with even greater meaning; and the greatest of all is the first machberes hagedolah in each 2,860-year cycle (for a more detailed breakdown, see

This year is the first time since 1226 that we will be able to see the planets aligned so closely! footnote below). Each event is a harbinger of change in the world, foretelling the fall of empires or momentous change and upheaval. The Abarbanel writes that the most significant once-in-

December 16, 2020 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 93 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


To better understand the meaning behind these cycles, let us explain how it works according to the Abarbanel’s understanding. Please note that this is a rough and incomplete synopsis, just enough to give readers a basic overview. Each meeting of Jupiter and Saturn takes place in one part of the sky with the next one occurring about 120 degrees away. This means that each set of three great conjunctions (60 years) forms a triangle of mazalos with the points at 120-degree intervals. Each mazal in this triangle represents the same one of the four elements of fire, water, earth and air. This repeats itself four times (for a total of about 240 years) before a slow shift of 7 to 8 degrees per great conjunction adds up to move this whole triangle over to the next mazal (and resultant triangle) for additional 240 years, during which time it represents a different one of the four elements. After four such 240-year cycles, the great conjunctions once again return to take place in the three mazalos representing the same of the original four elements, only this time the order is different (imagine if we were to number the mazalos 1 to 12: the first 240-year cycle would be under constellations number 1, 5 and 9 and after 960 years, they would take place under constellations 5, 9 and 1). After a full 2,860 years when all 12 mazalos have led a cycle of around 240 years, the entire operation would once again return to where it all began.

2,860-years great conjunction took place three years before Moshe Rabbeinu was born, which means that the next such occurrence was to be in the Abarbanel’s days; a calculation which led him to predict that Moshiach’s arrival was imminent at the time. We spoke with R’ Yidel Dancziger, a maggid shiur from New Square who writes and lectures about astronomy, to hear how this year’s meeting of the planets matches up historically with those mentioned in seforim. From a simple reading of the facts, this event does not appear to be among the most significant ones kicking off a major cycle, but there are certain interpretations that indicate that this is the beginning of a 240-year cycle and perhaps even more than that. With American leadership undergoing a striking shift these days, many are finding meaning in the great conjunction taking place right as the election results are being certified. It is interesting to share what an American astrologer pointed out: When a president is inaugurated in the year of a great conjunction, he is likely to die in office. This held true for awhile: William Henry Harrison (1840) died of pneumonia; Abraham Lincoln (1860), James Garfield (1880) and William McKinley (1900) were assassinated; Warren Harding (1920) died of a heart attack; FDR (1940) died of a sudden stroke; and Kennedy 1960) was assassinated. That’s where the story ends though as Reagan (1980) was shot but survived, and all George Bush (2000) did was choke on a pretzel and have a shoe thrown at him in Iraq. Whatever the case may be, we can all hope that next week’s celestial wonder should be a good omen and the stars should align in our favor; or as we say, “Siman tov u’mazel tov yehei lanu u’lechol Yisroel, amen!” Thank you to Rabbi Menachem Silber from Artscroll Mesorah for sharing his time and knowledge in helping us prepare this article.

DIG INTO Sand tray therapy is a combination of play and art. This group approach helps one express their feelings and experiences in the sand. The sand and figurines are used to represent the struggles and conflicts one experiences and help create solutions to problems. Research shows that sand tray therapy reduces symptoms of many mental health issues, including trauma, and increases resilience. Additionally, sand tray therapy is often a pleasurable sensory experience facilitating the natural expression of emotions. Here, participants can sift through their feelings to form new ones.

BOXING-ASSISTED THERAPY FOR MEN

FEELINGS Boxing improves focus, balance, and concentration. It provides stress release, and increases the production of endorphins, the neurotransmitters that create feel-good thoughts. Boxing can be a physical and symbolic expression of stress or anger. In a group setting, it is a safe way to manage anger, release tension or aggression without hurting oneself or others. It also provides an overall mental strengthening which helps work through negative feelings to effectively overcome them. The combination of therapy and boxing, helps with behavioral, psychological, and emotional struggles. We believe this exciting approach to therapy will help give everyone a fighting chance.

China supplies 75% of the world’s toys, and its booming manufacturing industry continues to attract investors from around the globe. “Made in China” is not just a piece of geographical information; it is a movement filling every playroom and every child’s imagination.

THE MONSEY VIEW / 109


Now that children are enjoying their newly acquired Chanukah toys, next on their list is probably Afikoman. While even the most toy-obsessed child probably wouldn’t dare go there this early in the winter, our community’s toy manufacturers are already knee-deep in the busy Pesach season. The bulk of their work is taking place in faraway China, the land of a billion people and even more toys.

The People’s Republic of China is officially a communist country, but when it comes to manufacturing, the capitalist spirit is alive and well. Today, Americans and American companies rely on Chinese firms to produce hundreds of billions of dollars worth of items every year — items that are then shipped across the ocean, where they are sold at a discounted rate. Prominent among the many industries importing items from China is the toy industry, with “Made in China” labeling an overwhelming number of toys and children’s products in our homes. Why China? In this case, the obvious answer is the right one: Lower costs. Labor is much cheaper in China, and raw materials like rubber and plastic are readily available. Additionally, Chinese companies are far more flexible in servicing each clients’ specific needs, whether in regard to timing, volume, custom orders or anything else. Since production in China is to a large extent about cutting costs, it is only natural for people to assume that the items are of a somewhat lesser quality. While this was overwhelmingly true in the past and continues to be the case with some items, especially those that aren’t meant to be long-lasting, China is more than capable of producing products of the highest caliber, and successful businesses contract exclusively with suppliers that fit the bill. Yet regardless of quality level, China has cornered the market as the premier exporter of toys and other children’s items around the globe.

THE PROCESS Every new toy begins as a concept. The international journey from an abstract idea to an item on the shelf takes many months, countless work hours, extensive capital investment, and a commitment to seeing the process through. Some online sellers simply repackage existing items under their own brand label, but the large retailers generally develop their own unique products, which is a far more daunting task. The first step is designing the toy. In addition to the creative aspect, this includes

110 / THE MONSEY VIEW / December 16, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


considerations for safety and how the toy will be enjoyed by the target audience. Will they be able to operate it? Will the pieces be too small for little kids? Is it something that will fall often and needs to be made from stronger material? Details that might seem minor can derail the chances of the new toy ever being successful. Additionally, in order for the new item’s design to have proper legal protection, trademarks are filed separately in China, the United States, the EU and any other place where the product will be sold. Once the design is completed and approved, and a manufacturer has been contracted to produce the toy, the 3D sketches need to be turned into plastic molds before production can begin. We spoke with Yidel Grossman from Dress Up America, part of the Toys4U line, and he told us that “creating molds is very time-consuming, and the tiniest errors need to be identified and corrected before proceeding. This process is very expensive, and it can take weeks or months until it is completed to everyone’s satisfaction.” When the item is ready for production, the manufac-

Will the children be able to operate it? Are the pieces too small for little kids? Is it something that will fall often and needs to be made FROM STRONGER MATERIAL? turing plant will get to work filling the order. Some toys are produced all at once, while others include multiple pieces that need to be assembled. Wrapping and packaging the items is another step before it can be considered ready for shipping. But one major hurdle remains: quality control. The toys need to be checked for levels of lead, phthalates (dangerous chemicals), flame retardants and more. A number of Chinese labs are accredited by the U.S. government to confirm that toys are up to standard.

DEALING WITH THE CHINESE

Every country has its own business culture, and the gulf between that of China and the United States is as wide as the Pacific Ocean separating the two superpowers. Those who have done business there for years instinc-

December 16, 2020 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 111 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


tively know how to deal with their Chinese counterparts, but newcomers are always taken aback by how different things operate in China. Among these cultural differences, Chinese businessmen are, to a large extent, more stoic and serious, and they negotiate with a heavy hand. Agreements and deadlines are merely suggestions, and every attempt at leverage is taken as a personal affront. Gift-giving and tips are frowned upon — “You think you can bribe me, or that I need your pity money?” — and maintaining composure is an absolute must.

Every country has its own business culture, and the gulf between that of China and the United States is as wide as the Pacific Ocean separating the two superpowers. Another interesting difference is that while U.S. companies rush to offer a large refund if an experience turns out to be less than one bargained for, Chinese firms rarely do so, even if it means losing a valuable client. Chinese salesmen are also very aggressive, and it is common for them to continuously follow up in a manner that most of us would consider straight-up harassment.

112 / THE MONSEY VIEW / December 16, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

Another way Chinese suppliers differ from American companies is that credit terms are mostly nonexistent, except at firms where a strong relationship has been established. An initial deposit of around 30% is required to get started, and the balance needs to be paid up in its entirety before a “Telex release” is provided, allowing the shipment to be delivered to the United States. There are financing options available from companies like UPS, but the manufacturers themselves generally require full payment immediately. China itself is a very large country with different ethnicities and cultures, so it’s always a risk to assume that everyone will act the same way. In speaking with people in the industry, a common theme emerges: Always verify, and maintain some level of suspicion. There are many companies that are desperate for business and will promise you the moon but leave you high and dry with a vastly inferior product. Developing a relationship with reputable production companies is something that takes time, and successful importers rely on this edge. A few years ago, a story was told of a heimish business owner who was scammed out of a significant sum by hackers who got into an email thread discussing where to wire payment, and listed their own bank account information instead of the manufacturer’s. Anyone who has done extensive business in China has stories of nearly (or actually) being scammed in one way or another. Mr. Grossman says that he always uses a different communication method to verify any sensitive information sent via email.


TILES AND STYLES

You’d be hard-pressed to find a child-blessed family without little magnetic tiles filling their toy chest or strewn about on the playroom floor. This fun and fascinating toy seems to have a magnetic pull that draws in children of all ages. The magnetic tiles were first brought to market under the Magna-Tiles brand and grew in popularity despite being sold at a prohibitive price. In 2013, when a Magna-Tiles shortage hit the toy market, Toys4U founder Yossi Itzkowitz decided to produce a line of magnetic tiles of his own, under the brand Playmags, and have it sold at half the retail price of Magna-Tiles. This was no easy feat. Magnetic tiles are, at once, both sturdy and delicate. Each magnet needs to be secured in place and be able to withstand the inevitable pounding it’ll take without the magnets shifting and throwing off the mechanics of how tiles attract and interact with each other. The Playmags team traveled to China to source the right-sized magnets for the new toys and find a manufacturer that can be entrusted with creating a durable product that will withstand the test of time. A further hurdle was the fact that magnetic tiles cannot just be churned out by machines; each piece is put together by hand. The top and bottom plastic plates are manufactured separately and then sent down an assembly line, where the magnets are carefully set in place. Tiny rivets then snap the two sides of the tile together tightly. When Playmags eventually made its successful appearance on the market — with lower prices, no less — the company behind Magna-Tiles sued for copyright infringement. They could not claim exclusive ownership to the magnetic mechanism behind the toy’s successful concept so they instead claimed that Playmags took their design by using the same asterisk-shaped diagonal lines running through each piece, which provide the toy its stability and strength. Their lawsuit didn’t go far. Eventually, the plaintiffs agreed to pay for the legal fees accrued by Playmags. As part of the settlement, Playmags agreed to work with their own experts to design a new stability pattern for its tiles. After some tinkering, Playmags settled on its current diamond design, with a horizontal and vertical line running through the diamond for increased support. Stronger magnets were also added to ensure the structural strength of children’s construction projects. In the years since, Playmags has become one of the leading international sellers of magnetic tiles, ranked near or atop every list for quality and strength. Today, the company sells around 20 million Playmag tiles on an annual basis, with the most popular 100-piece sets selling at about 50% less than its leading competitor. With Chanukah just behind us, many thousands of families are surely about to be introduced to these fun little pieces of magnet magic.

TRAVELING TO CHINA

These fun and fascinating toys seem to have a magnetic pull that draws in children of all ages.

Mr. Grossman, in charge of costume production in China, explains why it’s important to spend time on the ground during the production process. Not only does it improve communication and help build a relationship, it also ensures that buyers aren’t being misled and that the quality is up to par. Flying directly to China from New York takes sixteen hours, and coupled with the twelve-hour time difference, travelers lose a full day on the way over. Many frum travel-

114 / THE MONSEY VIEW / December 16, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

ers leave on Motzei Shabbos and arrive at their destination on Monday. Almost a full week of work can be put in before returning for the next Shabbos (where the twelve-hour difference is an advantage.) It should be noted that China is about the same size as the United States, so traveling within the country can also be very time-consuming. Today, hundreds of heimish Yidden travel regularly to all regions of the country. During large trade shows, there are lots of minyanim, and kosher food is widely available. The major cities like Shanghai, Hong Kong and Shenzhen have Chabad Houses, so those staying over Shabbos often travel to one of these locations before heading back out to work after the weekend. Chinese people have little exposure to religion, and the traveling community members often have a difficult time explaining their religious needs. In fact, when seeing someone with a yarmulke, Chinese citizens often ask whether the wearer is Muslim, as Judaism is completely foreign to them. But the U.S. dollar is something of value, especially in China, and as long as they get those, you can bet your bottom dollar that Chinese toys will continue to fill our homes.

It was a dark time. I was weathering many tough storms in my personal life and was in a shaky emotional state. One day I decided to treat myself to a fun and relaxing trip to Woodbury Commons. I set out, heading upstate, and the sun seemed to smile brightly as it radiated its magical rays of light. I needed this so badly. Soon the shops came into view, and I stepped into a large toy store with an extra spring in my step. I knew just what I was going to buy for my youngsters at home. I picked up the lively colored balls for their ball pool and imagined their reactions. They were going to love it! I could just picture my son’s cherubic features lighting up with excitement, and my heart lifted. Suddenly, the day ahead looked even more sunny and hopeful. I knew I could do this. Soon I headed to the checkout. Buyers milled around, full carts snaking along the aisles, and I tried to maneuver my stroller while balancing the huge pack of balls. As my turn neared, I fumbled in my wallet for my debit card. Finally the woman in front of me in line finished checking out, and it was my turn. I moved forward. “Insufficient funds on card,” chirped the cashier. I froze. This couldn’t be happening; we had just checked the accounts! I took out my second card with trembling hands. It was my only hope now. Please, I thought desperately. Not now, I can’t do this. Heat rushed to my cheeks. But the shake of the cashier’s afro only confirmed my worst fears. Behind me, customers tittered, and the rest of shoppers watched the scene unfold with a sort of bemused air. A thick layer of embarrassment washed over me like molten lava, unyielding in its force. I felt my last shred of courage fade away. “Should I put it aside for you?” The girl spoke again, kindness lacing her voice now. No, I motioned. Then I ran out of the store and continued running, finally ditching my sparkling dreams and packages in a messy heap on a bench somewhere. The friendly sun of earlier was now a cruel enemy, taunting me wherever I went, shining in my eyes, reflecting off my shoes. So this is what it feels like to have reached the bottom of the pit, I thought. I felt horrible. I knew Hashem loved me, but confusion blurred my view. Why wasn’t He helping me?

118 / THE MONSEY VIEW / December 16, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


I walked into a different store to gather myself together. My baby looked up at me with a worried expression. Out of my eyes poured the tiredness, the disappointments and the worries. “Hashem!” I cried silently, “I didn’t go buy a chandelier, an expensive luxury — I only wanted to get toys for my kinderlach!” I forced myself to breathe, in and out. I needed to go home, away from my shattered morning. A sudden rustle of movement caught my attention. A tall man with white hair stood, his hands outstretched, holding out a big bag from the toy store. “This is for you, ma’am,” he said. I looked at him. He must have thought I’d left it behind by mistake. “I didn’t pay for them,” I stammered. “Listen.” He looked at me then,

lul Hashem. I reached out my hand tentatively, felt the crinkle of plastic. “The way of the world is that sometimes you give when you see someone in need, and then one day they give when they see someone in need, and then it might still come back to my children,” he spoke quietly, and the words floated in the air until they settled deep in my heart. And then, just as quickly as he had come, he was gone. A wave of emotion filled me. I sensed the pieces fitting together, the joy of the puzzle being completed. Hashem had wanted to give me a true gift, no strings attached. Had I spent my own money, I would have been pressured to see my kids enjoying it; it would have to feel worth the $24.99 that had burned a gaping hole in my wallet. I stroked a red plastic orb. Even if my mother would have bought it for me, I would have felt bad, might have felt obligated to repay her. But this — this was a gift dropped into my hands straight from Heaven. I felt my heart explode with song. My challenges were still there, looming and black, but this morning Hashem had shown me a spark of light. I felt the loneliness recede for a glorious moment, like a young

“Kids need toys — it’s so important.” The bag dangled from his gnarled hand. his eyes gentle and soft. “It’s a gift from me. I understand, I also had kids. Kids need toys — it’s so important.” The bag dangled from his gnarled hand. “Please take it; if you won’t use it, pass it on to someone who will.” His forehead was shiny with beads of perspiration. He had walked quite a distance from our first meeting place. I looked at the bag suspiciously. Was all this a devious ploy preying on my weak defences? Could there be a bomb inside? No, right? He looked at me expectantly, the air between us filled with questions. I couldn’t leave it now; it would be so ungracious, such a chil-

girl walking securely with her father. He was holding my hand. I came home a changed person. Our rav reassured me that I could accept thie gift from the man as long as I knew he had paid for it. I did know that, for he had left the receipt inside the bag with the toys. My children’s faces shone with excitement when they spied the bag. As they rolled and bounced their new toys, I felt Hashem’s love fill my home. I kept this story close to my heart for years. When I began sharing it, the feedback I received showed me that it has the power to inspire. So many of us are undergoing challenges; the future often seems bleak. But sometimes we are privileged to see a ray of sunshine that keeps us going, that reminds us that our Father is always with us. Time passes, the years cruising along the sea of life. We surf over some stormy waves, do some peaceful laps as the sun rises and sets over the glistening horizon. The waters climb and crash, light eclipsing dark. Hashem’s presence, too, is sometimes hidden. Yet the memory of magical balls and a white-haired man keeps me looking forward to the endless vista ahead, as I await more kisses from my Heavenly Father.

Whatever could be the matter? Leah was one of the most driven, successful, and wellliked people in her business, and she had an excellent position as a marketing manager in a large healthcare management company . But here she was, on the phone with me, sounding close to tears. “I’m at my wits end. I love the actual work that I do, but my supervisor makes it impossible for me to actually do my job! I can’t see a way of staying at this job… but I can’t afford leaving either!” Leah shared. “Just today, I walked into a meeting, and again got blamed in front of the entire company for something I didn’t do. Not only that, the Vice President took credit for the successful campaign idea I’ve been working on for the last month.” I listened as Leah shared the entire story, which had been escalating for months. The issue was with her supervisor. Leah was the manager of a team, and was great at her job. She was caring, supportive, and smart, and mentored her employees in a positive, productive way. Suzie, her supervisor (who was also the company Vice President), was exactly the opposite - tough, aggressive, manipulative, and had no issue trampling Leah’s hard work to make herself look better. Suzie’s behavior included shouting at employees, using inappropriate language, and going behind Leah’s back. Instead of consulting with Leah, she’d go directly to her team and give them direct instructions. Having to deal with the backstabbing on a constant basis had worn Leah down to this point, where she felt like there was no way out. The funny thing was though, the exact reason that Leah was feeling so stuck was the same reason that she was so well-liked by others! She was a nice, honest person. The issue was, when dealing with the kind of people who view everyone else as an enemy, being nice doesn’t work. What does work? “Nonviolent Communication”. I recommended a book by that name, by Marshall Rosenberg, which we used as a weekly guidebook. Each week, we would each read a section of the book, and then we’d practice ways of implementing these tools practically at work. (See sidebar for book tools) The most important change was recognizing that Suzie was the kind of person who saw everyone as an enemy. To make things work, Leah realized that she would first have to focus on showing Suzie that she was in fact an ally, without giving in to every demand. Learning new listening and validation skills, how to tune into another’s needs without bending to them, and letting go of personal expectations were all part of the process. One of the best tools that she learned was instead of saying immediately responding with a “No”, she could instead say something like: “I’d love to be able to do that, but unless another project is taken over by someone else, I simply won’t have the time”. After a few months of practicing these new skills, Leah was able to completely change the dynamic at work. No longer was I just heard back from Leah. It’s been a few years, and she reported that after a while, Suzie had left her job, and she had been promoted to Suzie’s role. Leah thanked me for teaching her tools that she was using every day. “Imagine if I had actually quit back then!” she pondered. “It’s amazing that despite being great at my job, what really helped me grow in my career was learning to speak to difficult people!”. I couldn’t agree more.

MAGNA TILES

TETRIS

Originally sold under the name Pythagoras, these magnetic toys were developed by a Japanese math teacher who wanted children to learn geometry hands-on. It was brought to the United States in 1997 by Valtech as the latest STEM toy.

Inspired by a wooden puzzle game that had to be assembled to form a box, puzzleloving software engineer Alexey Pajitnov designed the game “for fun” in 1984 — at the height of the Cold War. And, indeed, while the Tetris industry was lucrative for many, under communist rule, Pajitnov did not earn any royalties on the millions it generated. (He did, however, end up immigrating to the United States and finally earned what he deserved from the games he developed here.)

PLAYMOBIL

This mechanical drawing toy is the brainchild of Andre Cassagnes, who designed it in the late 1950s. Originally called The Magic Screen, the toy made a splash at the 1959 International Toy Fair in Nuremberg, Germany. To date, over 100 million pieces have been sold.

This enchanting toy was invented by trained cabinetmaker and hobbyist of model airplanes Hans Beck, “the father of Playmobil.” Beck spent three years, from 1971 to 1974, developing the toy. He wanted it to fit into a child’s hand, have a child-like appearance, and be flexible yet not too complex. From 1975 until today, Playmobil has been Lego’s fiercest competitor.

MATCHBOX CARS A British school rule inspired this timeless toybox favorite — and its name. Jack Odell’s daughter attended a school that allowed students to bring only toys that fit into a matchbox, so in 1952 he designed a miniature version of a steamroller for his daughter to play with. The original cars were sold in matchboxes, and the first three Matchbox vehicles were a road roller, Muir Hill dumper and cement mixer, all introduced in 1953.

LEGO BRICKS What is arguably the most popular toy of all time was invented in 1947 (and patented in 1958) by Ole Kirk Kristiansen, a Danish carpenter. The Lego company has been producing a line of high-quality toys since 1932 and remains in the Kristiansen family still today. Its current owner, a grandson carrying his grandfather’s name, is the third-richest Dane.

PLAY-DOH

RUBIK’S CUBE

This beloved kids activity actually started out as a wallpaper cleaning product for a failing company in Cincinnati, Ohio. Kay Zufall, a sister-in-law of the owner, read an article about the clay being used for modeling and ran with the idea.

Though he was an architect, Erno Rubik is best known not for his architecture, but for his mechanical puzzles — most famously, the Rubik’s Cube, which he invented in 1974. When he invented it, though, he wasn’t all that sure that it could actually be solved. His other famous puzzles are the Rubik’s Snake and two versions of Rubik’s Magic.

She gathered children round and tried out the nontoxic material with them. The rest, as they say, is history — a history of some three billion cans sold.

CAUTION:

Kids at Play By: Malya Brauner

The million dreams I had for my new apartment notwithstanding, my focus was on this one room. No longer would toys be strewn all over my apartment. No longer would I be scrambling to clear the floor and wrenching Playmags off metal bed frames before putting the little ones to bed. In my new apartment, toys would have a home. A kingdom. Never mind that the entire room measured 10 feet by 9 feet, with a slanted wall that jutted into it to accommodate the neighbor’s stairwell. Never mind that it had a door connecting to their foyer and I would soon learn that in that room, privacy is not a given at all. My mind was an explosion of colors as I designed a cozy little nook where my youngsters would play and release their endless wellsprings of energy. I bought cushy bean bags and matching book racks, envisioning my kids settling in to relax and read on those frosty winter afternoons. Home time would be so peaceful, surreal. Puzzle mats were all the rage then, and I bought a set in coordinating colors to carefully cover the new, unblemished floor. Containers were assessed, measured, purchased, and the toys were organized in them, piece by shiny piece. Lugging my acquisitions to my new apartment even before I moved in, the playroom was the first room I set up, so excited was I about this small piece of utopia where my kids would play, relax, and just be boys.

WE WERE MOVING, AND I WAS GETTING AN EXTRA ROOM — A PLAYROOM, FINALLY.

THE MONSEY VIEW / 129


And on the very first day in our new home, when the kids came home from school, they sagged into their beanbags with an indulgent sigh, opened their books, and I smiled. My dream was coming true, right before my eyes. I ran to get the camera, and then I got them to smile too. It’s a good thing I captured them like that. I was summoned to the playroom to find my floor mat dismantled and being used in the construction of a life-size hideout where the kids and their companions soon hung out, whooping every time the wall caved in, calling for me to reconstruct their dwelling once again. The bean bags? It took just a few days for little experimenters to find the cache of mini white pebbles hiding in their innards and... indoor snow, what a novelty! I taped up the rips and always kept the vacuum cleaner handy — until I gave up the battle and put them out in big, black garbage bags. The bookshelf was soon also repurposed and converted to a model toy display for all those “Don’t break it until you send a picture to The Monsey View/Babby sees it/you buy orange Clics to fill in this side” masterpieces. But it was fine, because books… the baby ate them all, and what he didn’t eat, he tore. Or soaked with the negel vasser that wasn’t taken out fast enough. The indoor swing and exercise bars in the doorframe sat

“MOMMY! CAN YOU HOLD UP THE WALL FOR US? WE CAN’T REACH!”

forlorn. China closets and armoires and cabinet tops are so much higher and more adventurous. And some light fixtures swing! Sensory balls, bouncing toys — fuhgeddaboudit. They collected dust in the basement. Ever heard of mattresses? The dining room table leaf stored away, the one I can’t lift without straining my back, was deftly carried with sheer grit and fastidiously affixed to a bedframe with layers of heavyduty tape. (Where did they even find it?) Now they had a slide! And those sturdy containers over which I deliberated and agonized, wondering if they were worth their price tags? Of course they were. Three kids of various ages each fit into one comfortably. As do their teddy bears, their mike system, their blankets and their pillows. The previous contents were relegated to the playroom floor, in a huge puddle of colored plastic that trickled out to the hallway, all the way to the containerville they set up in the bedroom. Because yes, surprise, surprise, they play in their bedroom. And in the kitchen (it’s the warmest place on Shabbos mornings). And in the narrow, narrow hallway. Because it’s right near the laundry room, and who would want to play out of Mommy’s eyesight anyhow? And then their grandparents bought them an adorable puppet show theater. The frame never saw the light of day in its intended form. Much to my horror, the no-violence law that we take so seriously was neatly discarded when the blue poles were easily converted to little pow machines. Pow, pow! There were gunmen on the loose, and I ran for cover. Tripping over some stray magnets and who-knows-what, I escaped to my bedroom. And there I found another little boy lining up his mentchies on my bed, his Lego tower teetering on the night table. Because... where else is a child to play?

The fact is that molds thrive in damp coastal areas, but can be present wherever moisture collects. The problem is that once mold settles on a home, it can grow on nearly anything, not to mention the ongoing moisture and warm conditions, backyards often result in mold popping up on common outdoor surfaces such as patios, deck and outdoor cushions. The worst of it is that its spores can pose a health hazard. If you notice mold and mildew growing it’s important to remove it by calling Value Power Washing.

Young George Lerner loved to please his little sisters. To that end, he’d often take potatoes from his mother’s vegetable garden and give them to his sisters to use as potato people. He’d fashion facial features from other vegetables so that the spuds would look a little more lively. It was in 1949 that Lerner, seeking a buyer for his prototype, took his idea to the commercial world. Once he took that leap, only about a year passed until a cereal company decided to use his idea. They paid Lerner $5,000 and began distributing plastic features and accessories inside cereal boxes as prizes. A short time later, a toy company purchased the rights from the cereal company, and they paid Lerner royalties on every piece sold, as well as a one-time fee.

The original Mr. Potato Head came without, well, Mr. Potato Head. Kids were expected to supply their own spud. BECAUSE THE FIRST MR. POTATO WAS A REAL POTATO, THE FEATURES HAD TO BE INSERTED WITH SHARP PINS.

The first Mr. Potato Head toy kit cost $0.98. It had plastic hands, feet, ears, two mouths, two sets of eyes, and four noses. It also contained eight pieces of felt for facial hair, eyeglasses, three hats and a pipe. A styrofoam ball, which could be used as the head, was also included in each kit, but it was suggested that a real vegetable should be used instead.

By 1953 Mr. Potato Head had married; his children were named Yam and Spud. 140 / THE MONSEY VIEW

Small plastic pieces and sharp metal pins would hardly be considered suitable for toys nowadays (at least not without a warning), but before the late ‘60s there were no laws about safety in regard to children’s toys. It wasn’t until 1964 that the Hasbro toy company began making hard plastic Mr. Potato Head bodies and larger-sized plastic parts that could be inserted into pre-cut holes.

Aside from the safety issues, many parents considered the spud a dud. It was becoming annoying to frequently find moldy potatoes under their children’s beds and in other funny places.

At one point, Mr. Potato Head underwent a name change. He was actually born “Funny Face Man.” IN 1985, FOUR SEPARATE VOTERS NOMINATED MR. POTATO FOR MAYOR OF BOISE, IDAHO. HE MIGHT JUST RUN FOR PRESIDENT ONE DAY…

Up until 1987, Mr. Potato Head was a smoker. When the dangers of smoking became known, Mr. Potato Head stopped smoking cold turkey, and pipes were no longer included in the toy kits.

‫פרשת מקץ‬

Did you hear? The son of the g’vir is very sick!

Have a look at how many doctors are coming to check him! Is it serious?

My wonder potion will surely revive him. Let me try. Here, one drop... another drop... just another little bit…

It’s the first time my remedy hasn’t helped.

My potion didn’t help.

Let’s try again, one more time. Don’t give up so fast.

This is a special medication. It’s very costly, made from rare herbs. It will help, b’ezras Hashem!

No improvement. I don’t know what’s going on.

I think I know what will help the child, but…

I think — I think tha t—

What?

144 / THE MONSEY VIEW

If you don’t want to talk, then don’t.


But this treatment is so simple. It’s made from common plants that grow right here, in the g’vir’s garden…

The other doctors won’t agree with me. They brought rare and expensive herbs and potions, and here I’ll come with this simple treatment… What should I do?

They must accept my idea! It will save the child’s life!

Sir, there is a treatment for your son’s illness! But… an expert doctor must prepare the potion. It’s extremely delicate!

I know! I’ll go to the g’vir and I’ll tell him about it…

Hmmm… an expert!

Me! Me! Let him choose me!

The herb is called crocadice.

That’s it?

My potion was so much more expensive, and it didn’t help!

I’d better agree with him. Maybe I’ll be chosen as the expert doctor who will prepare the remedy?

That common plant?

Mission accomplished!

I brought a wonder potion from a distant country, and now I’ll waste my time on this? He’s right! How didn’t I think of it?

Of course! I agree!

WHAT DOES THIS TELL US? “And now, Pharaoh will choose a wise and perceptive man…” (41:33) Yosef interpreted Pharaoh’s dreams and realized immediately that the solution for the impending hunger was very simple. Yosef worried: How will the chartumim agree with his plan? They’ll probably think it’s too simple, and they’ll dismiss it. That’s why Yosef first said that Pharaoh should choose a wise man to carry out his plan. Only when the chartumim all hoped for this dignified position and agreed to everything he said did Yosef put out his suggestion of storing food for the years of hunger. (The Dubno Maggid)
