MATH MATTERS (Re: The Great Conjunction, Issue 278) Thank you for your beautiful publication. I marvel at the rich content you manage to produce weekly. I especially look forward to the informative articles written by Y. Blooming. I was wondering if he could elaborate on what he wrote as to “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 Jupiter must pass Saturn…” Which formula was used to get this number? Why can’t this phenomenon occur more than three times in 60 years? An Interested Reader Y. BLOOMING RESPONDS: Thank you for taking the time to write. Let me try to further elaborate: Since Saturn completes only two orbits every 60 years in the time that Jupiter completes five, this means that Jupiter completes three more orbits than Saturn over that period. Each of these three additional orbits requires Jupiter speeding by and overtaking Saturn at some point. That point is a great conjunction. If you want a more math-based breakdown, here’s another way to look at it: An orbit is 360 degrees. Saturn does a 30th of an orbit each year, which is 12 degrees. Jupiter does a 12th of an orbit each year, which is 30 degrees. The latter is 18 degrees more than the former, which means that Jupiter jumps ahead by 18 degrees annually. After twenty years, all these 18 degree advantages accumulate to a complete 360-degree circle (18x20=360), at which point they cross paths again.

(Re: Entering With Awe, Issue 276) I was impressed with how Rabbi Elias tackled the issue of taking young children to shul. He addressed it in a delicate manner and yet gave us all food for thought. I want to add another factor to consider before sending too-young boys to shul with their fathers. When I passed a shul in the brutal cold one recent Shabbos, I was so surprised to see several young boys outside, without coats, spending their time in the cold. It made me wonder whether their fathers knew their whereabouts at all, and it made me fear what else these boys could be up to without their fathers’ knowledge. If you decide that shul is the right place for your son, please make sure he’s safe and under the watchful eye of an adult. A Concerned Passerby

(Re: Buffet and Bar, Issue 175) A really long time ago (it must be at least two years now) I clipped a dairy broccoli soup recipe from your magazine. My husband was on a dairy-free diet at that point, and the picture and recipe just tempted me enough to put it away for the future. I tried it this week, and the rich soup was so comforting and hearty. I’m happy I saved it! You probably wouldn’t believe how many things that make their way to my table actually have their origins in your publication. R.D.

WEEK 14:

FREEDOM OF SPEECH The uniquely rarefied atmosphere of the beis knesses creates a great many halachic implications, many of which we have touched upon previously. Ultimately, though, what truly defines whether our beis knesses will realize its potential and be a truly fitting home for our relationship with Hakadosh Baruch Hu is our personal day-to-day conduct within these hallowed walls. If this is not just a standard room, then it’s not a place for standard behavior. This room is specifically dedicated as a VIP meeting room and should be used only as such. Thus, we have strict limitations on anything that might distract or detract from the distinguished atmosphere of the room. These include restrictions on eating, sleeping and even conversation. Let’s begin with the topic of speech. Looking at the Shulchan Aruch, the matter seems rather straightforward. Strictly speaking, any and all speech is forbidden, except that of tefillah or Torah nature. And yet this seems quite far from the reality in our shuls. Exchanges ranging from casual pleasantries to heated political debates abound. Is there justification for any of this? Before diving into the details of which forms of speech are or are not permitted, let’s back up a step. It is true that the laws pertaining to a beis knesses are rather clear, but one critical piece of information completely alters the equation. Chazal tell us, “Batei knessiyos sheb’Bavel al tenai hein asuyos


— Shuls outside of Eretz Yisroel can be built ‘conditionally,’” and this creates certain allowances. To be clear, the use of the word “conditionally” is a bit of a misnomer. Strictly speaking, a condition does not change the nature of a deal; it merely determines whether the deal will take effect. For example, were I to sell a car on condition that I receive payment in full within 30 days, the condition does not alter the fundamentals of ownership. Either the condition is fulfilled and the sale is a sale, or the condition is not met and there is no sale. It’s an all-or-nothing proposition; there is no half-ownership. With a shul, however, the intent is not to establish a conditional kedusha, but rather to establish an entirely new concept: that the kedusha of a beis knesses is somewhat amorphous and can be created in a limited form. Rather than imbuing a shul with fullfledged kedusha, those establishing the shul can decide at the time of its inception to opt for a more limited, potentially less restrictive, level of kedusha while at the same time maintaining a sufficient degree of kedusha to call it a proper beis knesses. While all are in agreement about the fundamental concept of tenai, there is disagreement as to the extent of its impact. The Mishnah Berurah rules in accordance with the opinion that this does allow for lessening of restrictions, but only when and to the degree necessary, and when there is no readily available alternative. It is important to note that the halacha restricting speech overlaps with a halacha prohibiting kalus rosh — lightheadedness. The concept of kalus rosh is not necessarily indicative of anything inherently inappropriate. Rather, the issue is a lack of koved rosh — a seriousness that comes with the awareness of where you stand. Anything that detracts from that awareness is forbidden. A good illustration would be a business meeting. It’s not lashon hara. It’s not talking during davening. But it’s a conversation that draws one away from focusing on the kedusha of where one stands. This is forbidden according to all opinions, as even the utilization of a tenai does nothing to mitigate the issue of kalus rosh.

Let’s get to some details: A conversation discussing Torah with a friend: Obviously,

this is not only permitted in a beis knesses but strongly encouraged. Torah and tefillah are what it’s all about. Essential Speech: Giving someone an important message? (He’s about to get a parking ticket. His son is waiting outside for him.) This involves any time-sensitive message or information. As standard practice in our shuls is to employ a tenai as described above, essential needs are permitted when speaking outside the shul is not a readily available alternative. This does not, however, allow any kalus rosh discussions, as categorized below.[1] This category is broadened by the poskim to include some level of nonessential talk while involved in learning. Since requiring a person to step outside would incur significant distraction from learning, allowing speech in this regard could as well be deemed essential.[2] Again, this would not permit any kalus rosh. Non-essential but productive speech: The Mishnah Berurah

rules that this category is forbidden, though there are those who find some level of tolerance for this category.[3] “Good morning,” “How are you?” and other basic greetings: This category is not viewed as problematic.[4] Political commentary and analysis: This is completely prohibited, both as a nonessential matter of speech, as well as a serious infraction of kalus rosh.[5]

IN SUMMATION: 1. A shul is a sensitive environment and is a place for Torah, tefillah and mitzvah-related talk only. 2. Using a precondition, talk is allowed when it’s a conversation of necessity, and it is impractical to relocate. Kalus rosh — discussing topics such as politics, business and sports — is forbidden under all circumstances.

December 23, 2020 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 75 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


Imagine... Sharing sports scores, postgame reviews or any other sports matter: As

above, this is absolutely prohibited. Business meetings, job interviews, or discussion of the stock market:

These are forbidden under the prohibition of kalus rosh. There’s nothing wrong with such a meeting, but it’s a distraction, reducing the focus on the sanctity of the shul.

or a board meeting to discuss the upcoming shul expansion, mitzvah needs may be discussed in shul.

Discussing people or general local affairs: Aside from being nonessen-

tial, conversations involving lashon hara, machlokes or any other forbidden speech are worse than normal when in shul. It’s terrible enough to be ignoring Hakadosh Baruch Hu’s commandments; worse still is to do so while standing right before Him. Such conversations are violations of numerous serious issurim d’Oraisa, and as numerous seforim state, they can cause tremendous damage to the entire shul. To be clear, all the above is said when one is within a beis knesses but not engaged in tefillah. During tefillah, a great many additional halachic issues are involved. Turning back to the realities we face, it is clear that although much of our speech is in fact permissible, unfortunately, we often seem to stretch this well past where we should. Suffice it to say that conversations often devolve into those of the very worst nature. What can be done? The first step in dealing with this is certainly to have a cognizance of the issue and a clear knowledge of the basic halacha. Beyond that, it would be helpful to focus on the underlying rationale behind the halacha: that of kavod Shamayim. Understandably, this can be a tall order. How can we picture what it means to stand in awe, where we’re totally attentive to every action we do or word we utter? The course of history has denied us any real appreciation of true monarchies. Parables of kings and princesses have long been relegated to

dusty shelves. But we can, and ought to, find some way to develop an appreciation for this concept. Have you ever been to court, even for a traffic violation? How do you act in front of a judge? Picture yourself for a moment in a private one-on-one conversation with Harav Chaim Kanievsky, shlit”a. What would you say? What wouldn’t you say? Kavod for Hakadosh Baruch Hu far outweighs that of the greatest gedolim, but this depiction can make it more tangible, driving home the idea that restrictions on speech are not a matter of stifling regulations, but rather a way to for us to act with a true appreciation of proper kavod. A final thought: The Mishnah Berurah details how a person initiating a problematic conversation will pay a heavy price. It might be a two-minute conversation, but it gets the ball rolling. The person you spoke to turns around to the next guy, and things get heated. Little by little, the entire shul atmosphere is affected, and it’s impossible to turn back the clock. You need to look yourself in the eye and realize that each action you do matters. You’re only one in a crowd, but the crowd notices. Nobody wants to be different from everyone else. You have the power, even if it’s to raise or lower the level of tolerance in shul by just a small amount. Stand with your ideals, treat a beis knesses properly, and you’ll reap the rewards of the people around you who will also be just a little more respectful. Rabbi Elias is a maggid shiur at the Yeshiva Gedola of Hampstead in Montreal, Canada. Rabbi Elias’ daily halacha/parsha shiur, given at the Agudah of Montreal, is available at www.TorahDownloads.com. For questions or comments, you can write to collectedaudio@gmail.com.

The Aruch Hashulchan wonders how completely mundane talk has become so widespread in shuls. He suggests that perhaps people are employing an extremely wide definition of shaas hadchak — necessary talk. While he does not endorse this, he does imply that there would be some grounds for leniency when something can be defined loosely as a necessity.

With Yeshivah Plans Looming, Residents Vote to Dissolve Village of South Nyack

How Sweet It Is: Monsey Shows Its Appreciation for Ramapo PD Over Chanukah

Four months after a Monsey yeshivah was identified as the buyer for a 107-acre college property located in South Nyack, residents have voted to dissolve the 142-year-old village in its entirety and have it absorbed into the greater Town of Orangetown, which has tighter zoning enforcement and other controls on land usage. The Journal News reported that 508 of 800 ballots cast last Thursday as a significant snowfall blanketed the area favored the dissolution, which would have the village selling off properties, its firehouse and other equipment and leave village employees — including police officers and court, public works and Village Hall employees — jobless. Those in favor of the move said that it would ultimately result in tax savings. They noted that the village has been steamrolled on multiple occasions, having been cut in half more than 50 years ago when the original Tappan Zee Bridge was built and, more recently, when multiple inconveniences were introduced in the village with the construction of the Mario M. Cuomo Bridge. The Nyack College property, which includes the South Nyack campus, land in Orangetown and an Upper Nyack seminary, is being sold to Yeshivah of Viznitz D’Khal Torath Chaim for $45.5 million. Some village residents have been openly critical of village Mayor Bonnie Christian and her team for allowing the sale to go through, with concerns voiced over potential property development and the possibility of a chassidic enclave taking root in South Nyack that could ultimately result in a formidable bloc vote with the power to affect local government and the school system. The yeshivah is expected to have up to 500 high school and beis midrash students as well as on-campus housing, with an on-site elementary school on the property a future possibility. South Nyack resident Mark Dery categorized concerns and speculations about the yeshivah’s effect on the village as nothing more than “fearmongering.” “If residents want to maintain control of their village hall, all they have to do is turn out in sufficient numbers,” noted Dery.

There were multihued glazes, a rainbow of sprinkles, and powdered sugar just about everywhere as Monsey’s Jewish community showed its hakaras hatov to the Ramapo Police Department, with multiple deliveries of doughnuts arriving over Chanukah for our officers in blue. The Ramapo Police Department took to social media last week to show pictures of the goodies, which included two platters of sufganiyot from Hatzolah EMS of Rockland and a Zos Chanukah shipment of Tuv Taam’s finest from New Square Emergency Services. Another photo showed Oizrim’s Rabbi Yisroel Kahan standing between two officers holding a large bakery box, a note taped to the lid bearing the words, “Happy Chanukah from the Monsey Community. Thank you for your dedication to the people of Rockland County.” Yossi Margaretten of Chaverim said that his delivery of over three dozen Shloime’s Bakery doughnuts from Rockland Kosher to Chief Brad Weidel and his crew was very well received. “They were very happy and appreciated that the community recognizes their hard work,” said Margaretten. “We thank them for being there for all of us year round and for keeping the community safe.”

​ l Al Acts Swiftly to Rectify Halachic E Issue Affecting Kohanim Less than one day after word broke that the Karlsburger Rav, Rav Yechezkel Roth, retracted a heter he had given allowing kohanim to travel on El Al flights taking niftarim for kevurah, a high-ranking airline official took corrective action to remedy the situation. Yeshiva World News reported that Rabbi Roth made the announcement on December 16 after being informed by reliable sources that El Al was no longer placing aronos into outer boxes before placing them on the airplane, a long-standing practice employed on flights out of JFK that prevented possible issues of tumah for kohanim. Just hours later, a high-ranking El Al official reached out to Rabbi Yanky Meyer, founder and director of Misaskim, to understand why Rabbi Roth had

rescinded his heter and was surprised to hear that the outer boxes used to create an ohel weren’t being used. After investigating the matter, the El Al official discovered that the airline had run out of the boxes and assured Meyer that a new shipment of boxes would be in place within 24 hours, with a second delivery arriving a few days later. El Al also agreed to store an emergency supply of the boxes in Misaskim’s Boro Park warehouse to prevent a recurrence of the problem, prompting Rabbi Roth to reinstate his heter and allow kohanim back on El Al flights. El Al’s vice president for North and Central America, Yoram Elgrabli, met with Rabbi Yechezkel Roth, Rav Moshe Stern, Rav Herschel Ausch and Rav Moshe Roth on Monday to further clarify all of the applicable halachic issues. The airline will be making it an official policy to place all aronos in an outer box before being loaded onto the plane, with steps taken to prevent the problem at several other major airports as well.

CHAPTER TWELVE RECAP: Ariella

wants to get away for a while. In the meantime, Rabbi Reiness calls Osher’s parents to let them know where their son is. Yeruchem, a young boy from Rabbi Reiness’s yeshivah, is taken away by welfare services, much to Rabbi Reiness’ — and Osher’s — sadness.

Osher

I

opened my drawer and took out a colorful set of linen, the one with the patchwork of squares. Nechemiah sat on a chair near the bed and drank the tea I’d made for him. He watched me stretch the sheet over Yeruchem’s mattress and wave the thick blanket in the air. “So that it should be soft and fluffy and full of air,” I explained as I did it again. I remembered my father waving our blankets in the air when he put on our linen. I can never do it as well, but I’m getting there. “I thought the only way to do it is by banging the blankets,” he said, eyes closed. I folded back the blanket. “Here you go — make yourself at home.” He laughed at my joke, but his laugh was hoarse, clearly the laugh of someone feeling ill. He got up, unsteady on his feet, and then slowly walked toward the bed. He just about fell into it. “Do you want some Tylenol?” I asked. “Yes, thanks. I think there’s some in the kitchen cabinet, right side on the top.” “I also have Tylenol.” I didn’t want to open the door to the Reiness’ family quarters. “Take some of mine for now, and feel better.” “Thanks.” His hand shook as he took the pills from me. “I’m like that,” he said, his eyes still closed. “A little fever puts me away. Maybe it’s because I’m spoiled.” He sighed deeply and then pulled the cover up to his chin. “And the fact that I’m almost twenty-one does not change the fact that I’m the youngest at home. What can I do? It seems to have an effect.”

I didn’t really know what to answer to his very personal remarks. Maybe that’s why I was happy when the doorbell rang. I hoped it was Nechemiah’s mother, who would quickly clear his bed in the house so he could move into his room instead of saying all these strange things that I didn’t really have the right answers for. Only after I went over to the door to open it did I remember that his mother would not wait for someone to answer the door; it was her place, and she would let herself in. And after I saw who was standing there, I regretted opening the door in the first place. “Hello, there!” the Arab said with a huge, toothy grin. He had on a floral shirt in shades of maroon, orange and blue. “Where is your Rabbi Elazar?” “He’s down there,” I said. “No, he’s not,” the Arab said. His smile disappeared. “You’re lying. The carpentry shop is locked.” “Not downstairs in the carpentry shop. Down on the beach.” I gripped the doorknob tightly, waiting for the second when I could close the door and lock it as hard as I could. “You’re one of the boys from his school?” “Sort of,” I said, and a smile escaped from my lips. “And your school is here?” Very impolitely, he peered into the house. “Really? So small? You learn here? And eat here and everything?” “Sort of,” I said again. “So why is your school in such a tiny place? It’s not good to have such small and crowded quarters. Tell your teacher you want a new school building — a nice place, with a board and desks.” I don’t even know why I answered him. “We need place for the carpentry shop, not just for a normal classroom.” “Of course, of course!” he cried. “My children have a big hall for woodworking in their school, and they make wonderful things there. Why do you have this old house? Tell Elazar you want a

90 / THE MONSEY VIEW / December 23, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

new, big school, a fancy building.” Suddenly I sensed someone standing behind me, and I turned around. Nechemiah was there, wrapped in my blanket. It was no wonder he’d heard the conversation; our room was very close to the door. He spoke up. “I’ll tell the owner what you said. Thank you, and goodbye.” He closed the door firmly and locked it. “Why are you talking to Arabs?” he asked me. “Ugh, now I’m all dizzy.” “Why did you get up?” I asked. “Because I saw that you don’t know

When I saw who was standing there, I regretted opening the door in the first place. that you don’t get into conversations with Arabs, and for sure not with Abu Kassem.” “Do you know him?” “No. And that’s not his name. I think one of your friends made up the name for anyone who comes here about the house.” “Huh? My friends know him?” “Either him or the others. You think you’re the first person Abu Kassem is trying to convince to persuade my father to move out of here?” I looked at the closed door, as if I could see Abu Kassem or whatever his name was through it. “Why is he trying to do that?” I asked. “I told you, he’s not the only one.” Nechemiah inched toward his bed, carefully lifting the edges of the blanket. “He’s not the only one?” “It’s a valuable area. Lots of people want it.” “The whole area, or just your house?” But Nechemiah didn’t answer me. He was already back in bed, with the blanket up to his nose.

***** “Ariella!” Her father stood up from his place when he heard the croak through the phone. “What happened to you?” “Just pressure,” she managed to squeak. “Pressure?! In your throat?” “Something like that.” “I guess I haven’t heard you in a long time. Or is it something sudden?” “Both,” she whispered. “You need to go to the speech therapist again, the one who treated you last time you were hoarse like this. Find out why it keeps coming back. That polyp on your vocal chords disappeared a long time ago, didn’t it?” She shrugged, as if to say, don’t know, don’t remember — not that he could see her. “You can’t neglect yourself,” he said sternly. “I know…” She sighed. “What are you doing about it?” “I made an appointment.” She could hardly get the words out. “With the speech therapist? Good. And did you cancel all your private lessons?” “Uh-huh.” “Do you want Shoshi to come and help you out? Or Lakey? Dishes, laundry, whatever?” “It’s fine,” she whispered. Her throat was on fire. “Being hoarse doesn’t affect my washing machine.” “I could have waited until you feel better to hear that pearl of wisdom,” he said chidingly. “It’s not worth exerting yourself to say it. So I’m hanging up now, Ariella. I don’t want you to exert yourself to answer me.” “Wait,” she whispered. “Osher.” “What about Osher?” her father asked. He did not hang up. “What’s the story?” She tried to use the least amount of words possible. “You’re asking me?” “Uh-huh.” “Mommy looked into it, and so did


December 23, 2020 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 91 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


you. I also tried, but so far I haven’t been able to get any information.” He was quiet. “What can I do?” Now it was his turn to sigh deeply. “We’re thinking about it. We’ll probably go to him — Mommy and I — to see who and what this is all about.” “No,” she blurted out. “No? What no? Wait, don’t answer me.” He paused. “We’ll talk and then decide what to do. Somehow, it doesn’t sound as bad as some of the other places he’s landed in those other times.” “Yes,” she said thoughtfully. “I asked you not to answer me! Good night, Ariella. Make yourself a cup of hot tea with lemon, and go to sleep early. And tell your speech therapist that you need to get to the root of the problem. We can’t have this hoarseness coming back all the time.” She obediently hung up the phone and went to boil up some water. B’ezras Hashem, she would tell Rivi, her speech therapist, that she needed something to get to the root of the issue. Rivi would certainly agree with her. The question only was whether the root of the issue was something within Rivi’s ability to treat. That was surely clear to Tatty, as well. He was a thorough person who always tried to get to the root of things. But they both knew very well that the best solution was not always to expose the roots, to drill into them and clean them out. Sometimes roots preferred to be covered and kept in the dark. Ariella stirred her tea. She couldn’t stand tea, but it did provide some relief for her aching throat. True, that was just treating the symptom, and not the real problem. If only she could finally learn to speak properly and utter all different types of sounds, then the problem of her hoarseness would be resolved permanently. That’s what Rivi kept saying. The question was, why, after she’d learned to “speak properly,” was she going back to those same mistakes in how she uttered certain sounds? That meant that the hoarseness was only a symptom. So they would be back to digging around the roots. No, thank you. She did not want to think about the Belgian shidduch she’d turned down, and about how stuck she was, and about Osher, who was just as stuck. The worst thing would be to think about Osher. He was so like her, and all his failings were actually an enlarged reflection of her own failings. She could think about him if she really wanted to, but she would stick to sweet thoughts, like the question of whether he’d taken to Acco the linen that she’d bought him, with the colorful patchwork of squares, and if he was using it, and if he even remembered that she’d bought it for him. She could, of course, call and ask Shoshi to check the linen closet to see if he’d taken it or not, but Tatty had asked her to go to sleep early.

Osher When Nechemiah’s mother returned, he was already sleeping very deeply. She preferred for him to “sleep well, because it’s the best medicine,” so she didn’t wake him up

92 / THE MONSEY VIEW / December 23, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484



to ask him to move to his regular bed. Shlomo and I got into bed very quietly so as not to wake him. Not that we usually shmooze much; we don’t really have what to talk about. But this time we didn’t even say the regular: “Do you mind if I shut the light?” Meaning, Shlomo didn’t say it, and I didn’t reply, “A few more minutes, please.” He just shut the light without asking. So I didn’t say anything either, and just did my own thing: I got up and turned the light back on. Shlomo did not get up to switch it off again; he just gave me a look and then pulled the blanket over his eyes. I sat for a few moments and thought about how disgusting it was that Shlomo didn’t think about me; he’d just shut the light, leaving me to find my pajama shirt in the dark. It had disappeared, as usual. I looked around the bed and thought about how I needed to teach him to be considerate of those around him, even though I’m definitely not the best teacher for this type of thing. Then I got up to search some more. It took me a good few minutes until I found my shirt inside the pillowcase. I have no idea how it got there. I had an urge to keep the light on, just because, but I switched it off. I know how to get dressed in the dark. Shlomo didn’t react, although it didn’t look like he’d fallen asleep. So I decided to stop thinking about him. I lay down and tossed and turned from side to side for what felt like a long while. Finally, I got up and went over to the window. This was unusual. I usually fall asleep very fast; I’ve been doing that since I’m little. My mother says that I live in a very tiring way, and she’s right. I’m usually exhausted at the end of the day, and if I can just manage to lie still for a few minutes, I fall asleep easily. But when something bothers me, I can’t fall asleep. The windowsill was old, painted

94 / THE MONSEY VIEW / December 23, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

in light brown. Something about it reminded me of the Shabbos before Ariella’s wedding. Actually, this whole room reminded me of the apartment we’d stayed in when we went to Yerushalayim for Nosson’s aufruf. I don’t know where Ariella was then; she must have been with a friend or something, but the rest of the family went in for the simcha. We were put up in a small, very tidy apartment, and Mommy asked me not to touch anything. Tatty and Mommy slept in the bed-

But when something bothers me, I can’t fall asleep. room, Shoshi and Lakey in the crowded dining room, and I — who had just turned eleven that Shabbos — got the little room near the bedroom. I think old people must have lived there; to this day I remember the horrible smell of mothballs that kept me from sleeping. So pretty early in the night I was standing at the windowsill that looked a lot like this one. It was in Cheshvan, right after yom tov. I have no idea how Nosson knew it was my birthday. On second thought, it really was just like Ariella to tell him about it. Right after we washed for the Friday night seudah, Nosson asked to speak. He announced to everyone that there was another “chasan” present who was no less important than he, and he began to sing Siman Tov U’mazel Tov. After everyone finished singing with him, he called me over and gave me a gift, a comic book about the meshalim of the Dubno Maggid. Ariella was very excited when I showed her the book after we got home. She doesn’t know that I’ve since lost the book, and I hope she never asks me for it. It’s been a long time since it disappeared; it happened around the time Nosson was niftar. I

was so stunned by his passing. Until then, I hadn’t known anyone who was alive and then died. My grandfather passed away when I was three, but I hardly remember anything from that age, and I’d only met him about four times in my life. There was also the older man from shul who would give chocolate to the kids; he was niftar when I was six or seven, but I didn’t know him that well, either. I remember learning mishnayos for him and wondering if, before he was niftar, he’d asked someone to take over his job of distributing chocolate. Well, either he didn’t ask anyone, or that person did not carry out his instructions, because we never got chocolate after that. So maybe I was a little sad that he passed away, but I don’t know how much of that was because of him and how much was because of the chocolate. With Nosson it was different. He passed away very suddenly. The truth is that it wasn’t so sudden; there were about two and a half weeks between the accident and when he was niftar. But I think that even twenty weeks wouldn’t have been enough time to absorb such a thing. Ariella had hardly had a chance to be his wife. Mommy even told me that there were things they hadn’t yet taken from our house to theirs. Now I’ll have to wait a long, long time, until Shoshi gets married, to have a new brother-in-law. I mean, I guess I could get a new brother-in-law sooner, through Ariella, but I can’t imagine her getting married again. She was a really successful girl once, and I was the one who was stuck, a good-for-nothing. Today she’s also stuck, poor thing, and it’s such a shame. Because at least I got used to it already. But it’s really not my problem. That’s what Tatty and Mommy would tell me if they knew what I was thinking about. To be continued…

Congress Agrees to $900 Billion COVID-19 Relief Bill THE PULSE: Leaders in the House and Senate agreed to a $900 billion COVID-19 relief bill. The bill includes aid for small businesses in the form of forgivable paycheck protection loans, assistance for schools and colleges to help them reopen safely, funding for vaccine distribution, and $600 stimulus checks for American adults and children. The original bill had omitted direct stimulus payments for American families, but an unusual political alliance between conservative Republican Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) successfully pushed for their inclusion. Hawley and Sanders had advocated for a larger $1,200 payment per adult but settled

98 / THE MONSEY VIEW / December 23, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

on a compromise that would be palatable for other Senate members. President-elect Joe Biden left open the possibility for further stimulus checks in 2021 should the economic situation warrant it. THE IMPACT: The bill is a win for bipartisanship. The

congressional bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus was a driving force behind the legislation. Members of the caucus and like-minded senators helped push party leaders to reach a consensus on funding. Congressmen Tom Reed and Josh Gottheimer took the lead in the House, and Senators Bill Cassidy (R-LA) and Joe Manchin (D-WV) took leading roles in the Senate. Manchin said, “Bipartisanship and compromise are alive and well in Washington, contrary to what you’ve been hearing. We’ve proven that.”

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan Named No Labels National Co-Chair THE PULSE: Maryland Republican Governor Larry

Hogan was named national co-chair of the bipartisan No Labels organization. Hogan joins Democratic Senator and onetime vice presidential candidate Joe Lieberman at the helm of the organization. Hogan said that he is “honored to help lead No Labels at a time when our message of putting aside partisan differences for the common good is needed more than ever.” And that “amid this awful pandemic, the people in my state and across our country are desperate for leaders to work across the aisle and focus on solving the urgent problems we face.” THE IMPACT: No Labels is the grassroots advocacy arm of the congressional Problem Solvers Caucus. The current political climate of slim political majorities in both the House and Senate empowers those seeking to work in a bipartisan fashion. The recent COVID-19 relief bill is a hopeful indicator of future successes. Senator Bill Cassidy said, “Republicans and Democrats, neither of us got everything we wanted. Both of us got much of what we wanted.” At a recent No Labels conference, Senator Joe Lieberman called it a “movement to rescue American government from ideological extremism.” Conservative New York Times columnist David Brooks said, “The best policy is not always the middle; it is taking a left-wing idea and a right-wing idea and combining the two.”

Deb Haaland Nominated for Interior Secretary THE PULSE: New Mexico Congresswoman Deb Haa-

land was nominated to serve as interior secretary in the upcoming Biden administration. Haaland’s appointment is historic as she will be the first Native American to serve in a cabinet position. The interior department manages over 500 million acres of government land and includes agencies such as the National Parks Service and the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Former Senator Daniel Inouye of Hawaii once called the Department of the Interior “the most important [cabinet position] because you are the custodian of America’s natural resources and custodian of America’s heritage.” Historically, the Interior Department has had a strained relationship with Native American tribes, and many see this as an attempted reset on an often rocky relation-

100 / THE MONSEY VIEW / December 23, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

ship. Jonathan Nez, president of the Navajo Nation tribe, called it “a historic and unprecedented day for all Indigenous people.” THE IMPACT: Joe Biden promised that his cabinet

would reflect the diversity of America. The appointment of Haaland helps him fulfill that commitment. However, some Democrats fear that Haaland’s selection will open up a competitive congressional seat to a potential Republican challenge and may unwittingly lead to a loss of a congressional seat and a slimming down of the Democratic congressional majority. Adding to this concern is that Biden has also selected Congresswoman Marcia Fudge (D-OH) and Congressman Cedric Richmond (D-LA) for roles in his administration. Democratic Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) said, “I’m certainly concerned by the slimming of the majority. I indicated to the administration very early on that I wanted them to be very careful in terms of the members that they appointed from Congress.”

President Trump Threatens to Veto the National Defense Authorization Act THE PULSE: President Trump threatened to veto the

National Defense Authorization Act, which passed the Senate by a vote of 84-13, and the House by a vote of 33578. Trump is upset that the bill does not remove Section 230 protections for technology companies and that it includes renaming military installations named in honor of Confederate leaders. Section 230 protects technology companies from liability for defamatory comments posted by users of their platforms. According to the law, only platform users can be held liable for their comments. In a statement, Trump said that the bill “must have Section 230 termination, protect our National Monuments and allow for removal of the military from far away, and very unappreciative, lands.” THE IMPACT: The NDAA passed the House and Senate with veto-proof two-thirds majorities. Should the president choose to veto the legislation, he will likely hold off until December 23 to issue the veto, which will make it logistically challenging for Congress to return from their holiday break to override it. It also remains to be seen if Republicans who backed the bill will vote to override a presidential veto. Trump has vetoed eight bills during his presidency. None have been overridden. Trump ally Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) said that he hopes that the president does not veto the legislation.

4 WAYS TO HELP YOUR FEET FIND


114 / THE MONSEY VIEW / December 23, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484


Plucked from ducks and geese who manage to stay warm in frigid temperatures, down has earned its spot at the top of the list of preferred insulators. Let’s take a look at this extraordinary material and how producing down goes down.

rom mountain climbers and cross-country hikers in need of lightweight yet cozy jackets, to everyday folks in search of a warm blanket and a good night’s rest, no material compares to down. Down comes from the feathery insulation of waterfowl like duck and geese, with the former making up about 90% of the world’s down supply, and the latter being of much higher quality. Before discussing down and its almost magical properties, we need to first clarify what down is not: feathers. Feathers and down come from the exterior portions of the same birds, but they act very differently as insulators. Feathers, while warm and lightweight, have a more structured shape, which makes them less airy than the puffy down. Down, on the other hand, is the light and fluffy fiber found beneath the feathers, in direct contact with the body of the goose or duck. It’s typically taken from the underbelly, where it provides critical insulation. These little clusters trap air within them and provide superior insulation that is lighter, warmer, longer-lasting, and more flexible than feathers. Down looks like a ball of cotton candy, with thousands of tiny fibers extending out from the center — a perfect structure to trap heat in a lightweight manner. A clear illustration of this difference and what makes down so remarkably effective and highly sought after, is how the commercial manufacturers in China and elsewhere separate feathers from down. The feathers and down are loaded together into a large, spacious machine, and air jets are turned on to get the materials to fly around in the chamber. When the fans are turned

off, the heavier feathers quickly fall to the bottom while the fluffy down continues to float about for a while before settling. Among the many source countries of goose down, Hungary is universally ranked highest in regard to thermal quality and comfort, with Poland not too far behind. While some suggest that this is due to the colder climates there, it appears that the real reason is Hungary’s long and proud tradition of raising geese — and raising

First we need to clarify what down is not: feathers. them well. While geese in colder regions produce more down, they do not necessarily produce better down, on a pound-for-pound basis. To learn more about the production of artisanal Hungarian goose down items, we spoke with Mrs. Chaya Vitty Weingarten, a chassidish woman from Belgium who founded and operates Hungarian Goosedown. Over the last few years, Mrs. Weingarten’s firm, based in Hungary, has become a top exporter of high-quality, longlasting, handcrafted Hungarian down comforters and pillows. She explained that many down producers in China or elsewhere use exaggerated

or misleading terms to brand their down. Most notable is “Siberian goose down,” which sounds like something that will really keep you warm in frigid temperatures, even though there are no geese — and no down manufacturers — roaming around Siberia. Mrs. Weingarten’s introduction to the world of down came when her family was doing kiruv and educational work in Hungary. She would often buy high-quality Hungarian down items for friends and family back home, and soon realized the great demand for pure, authentic down. A few years ago, she launched her business, with the goal to make affordable down comforters and pillows available to the community. The best down comes from mature and free-range geese — and commercial manufacturers, in their quest to produce as much down as possible, do not provide this in their industrial settings. To get the highest-caliber material, Mrs. Weingarten says, she purchases large amounts of pure goose down directly from rural Hungarian farmers, whose well-treated geese are the ideal source of top-quality down. The pure down arrives clean, but her team washes it again to ensure that clients receive

material that is pristine, with no lingering smell. The products are all filled and sewn together by hand. Each blanket is designed with the “baffle box” method, in which a bunch of little squares are filled separately and stitched together to produce one contiguous item. These separated sections ensure that the down doesn’t migrate to one side, leaving the user with uneven coverage. Additionally, each pocket traps air inside, offering even more lightweight

ries or otherwise struggle with nighttime pain continue to marvel at how these creatively designed pillows provide comfort and, most importantly, a good night’s rest. Since goose down is all about its light weight and airiness, the material is measured in fill weight, which reflects the quantity of the down, and fill power, which measures the quality of the down. Fill power is determined by measuring how many cubic inches are filled with one ounce of down. The higher the number, the more air is trapped, leading to improved lightweight insulation. It is widely assumed that a fill power of 800 or more is far superior to one in the 500 range, but Mrs. Weingarten cautions that these higher fill power blankets do not last as long due to their lack of volume. Mrs. Weingarten’s team does not suction out the air from the pillows and blankets when shipping them to her local warehouse in Lakewood. She explains that, despite the higher cost of shipping, it’s worth keeping the air pockets structurally intact throughout. Her products have been selling

While “Siberian goose down” might sound like something that will really keep you warm in frigid temperatures, there are actually no geese — and no down manufacturers — roaming around Siberia.

insulation. Mrs. Weingarten goes further and adds a six-inch border all around, for greater strength and improved trapping of warm air. For pillows, 100% down might sound cozy, but it isn’t something that works in practice as the sleeper’s head just sinks in. To remedy this issue, Mrs. Weingarten designed a layered pillow with down filling the top and bottom layers, and more structured feathers filling the pocket in the center. People who’ve suffered neck inju-

well since entering the market, with the significantly lower rates an added bonus to the great quality of nature’s best insulator done the right way. Despite a push by top labs to create synthetic warmers that can match the powers of down, nobody has been able to produce anything that combines the warmth, fluffiness, lightness and breathability of this magical material. When it comes to insulation, down continues to be the winner — hands down.

As the winter sets in and grips us with its icy fingers, how thankful we are for the advent of heating and our ability to control the temperature within.

Sometimes the solution is as simple as snuggling under a blanket that is as warm, as light, or as breathable as one prefers. Here we have a look at the different types of warming protections out there — and there are many, each with its distinct features. Turns out that the term “blanket” is not a blanket statement at all.

Blankets The term “blanket” goes back to the fourteenth century, when Flemish weaver Thomas Blanquette presented to the public a tightly woven wool covering that could wrap its owner in warmth. What sets a blanket apart from other warmers is the fact that it’s made of only a single layer of wool, cotton, linen or just about any material. In hotels, and homes where flat sheet sets are used, blankets are part of standard bedding protocol, though the debate rages on as to whether the blanket should be under the comforter when sleeping (to avoid the necessity of frequent washing of the more-expensive comforter) or whether the comforter should be closest to the sleeper for optimal warmth. For our wee ones, blankets are the way to keep them warm, and the variety is endless — cozy, plush, wool, or so very breathable, like the muslins in which summer newborns love to be swaddled. And when it comes to childhood fuzzies, many kids actually become attached to that fleecy, cozy comfort and will prefer to use those blankies until they’re dog-eared and an overall disgrace. The military is still big on blankets, too, and that’s as far as the soldiers’ sleeping comfort goes. Made of 70% virgin wool and 30% synthetic materials, military blankets measure 62 by 80 inches, are fire retardant, and have been around for centuries. Blankets are also great as throws for couches and chairs, and come in every delightful color, material and design. You can choose beautiful chunky or fine knits, chenilles, sherpa or fleece. And come summer, light blankets adorn the beds in many homes where the A/C doesn’t get cranked up too high. Perhaps the latest on the blanket scene are wearable blankets to surround working individuals in comfort and warmth, as well as pocket blankets that provide a deep lower sack for toasty toes on frigid days. Warm

But inevitably, when there are two people residing under the dominion of the same thermostat, one of them likes things toasty and the other needs the temp to dip below 68 degrees for what they deem proper ventilation. What is a family to do in such a case? Who gets to sleep, and who gets to melt — or freeze?

Quilts Warm

Quilts have nostalgia-evoking vibes reminiscent of colonial times, and they also have the distinction of being the first proper bedding, coming after a time when people slept under burlap bags filled with straw. And while we might find the notion of early American housewives frugally patching together fabric scraps charming, the truth is that our country’s first quilts were made from expensive imported textiles and were seen in upper-class homes only. Quilts are legendary for having been used to indicate safe houses in the Underground Railroad during the era of slavery, with different design motifs providing crucial instructions and alerting refugees to the safety conditions of the place. Quilts are made of three layers — the top, the backing and the batting between them — to provide warmth. Many quilts also feature ornate stitching, patchwork and motifs. Today, these quilts serve purposes more decorative and sentimental than functional, since these handmade items are delicate and generally don’t offer all that much comfort and warmth.

Comforters Warmer

Comforters are, in essence, commercialized quilts with more heft and more basic stitching, born when the manufacture of handmade quilts segued into mechanical labor. Like quilts, they have a top, a backing and a filler — generally down or synthetic materials — and quilting to keep the stuffing evenly distributed. They’re more densely filled than duvets, making them flatter, heavier and less delicate — since comforters are designed to be used uncovered and laundered regularly. Comforters are popular as part of a sheet set ensemble, as well as in children’s rooms for their variety of patterns and colors, plus their ease in use and in bedmaking.

Duvets

A Dose of Therapeutic Warmth

Electric Blankets Heated blankets were created for those chilled-to-the-bone, chronically icy-toed fellows who hibernate indoors from the sun’s first dip. Oh, and for shivering sukkah-sleepers, too. A quality electric blanket is designed safely; most turn off automatically after ten hours. Cleaning instructions are to be followed exactly to keep safety at the max. The best overall heating blanket currently on the market, as nominated by Good Housekeeping, is this Sunbeam microplush heated blanket that has a remote with ten heat settings, a prewarming option, and automatically regulates and distributes heat throughout the night. Warmest

Warmer Still

The French word duvet actually means down, a nod to the goose down that filled the first of these cozy warmers. Today, a duvet is a sack filled with insulating material — down, feathers or synthetic fillers. Although the original was a sack without any quilting, today’s versions often have stitching in place to keep the fill from shifting. Duvets are light and warm and among the most comfortable of bedding options. Duvets started out in Europe and then gained popularity in the United States, where many homes have retired the complicated top sheet sets. This probably explains why those whose families hail from Europe know of no other bedding option... Duvets are meant to be used with duvet covers, as they are not to be washed often (some must be dry-cleaned only), and they’re showcased in beautiful linen sets and crisply made beds.

Weighted Blankets

Last year’s most popular item is still going strong (many claimed that InstaPot had to give up its prime spot in the sun for this one). These therapeutic blankets, which are usually filled with plastic pellets or glass beads, weigh between five and thirty pounds. The deep pressure stimulation they provide has a relaxing effect, relieving stress and creating a sense of calm for a good night’s sleep. Many children and adults have found that it alleviates anxiety, insomnia and ADHD restlessness, and brings relief to those with ASD and sensory issues in general. In addition to weighted blankets, there are a variety of other tools that can help those for whom the deep pressure can provide relief, among them weighted “hug” vests, dolls and teddy bears. Safety must be kept in mind when using any weighted products for young kids (and especially when the fill is a choking hazard). In general, the item should not exceed 10% of the individual’s body weight.

Who doesn’t love cuddling up with their favorite book or magazine on a cold winter afternoon? I remember always wishing to do that on one of those huge, fluffy beanbags. I’d flip through catalogs looking for the perfect color and size — only to find out that they’re really expensive! So when thinking of a fun and cozy winter DIY project, I immediately thought, “Beanbag!” Not only is it cheaper to create one yourself, but you can also choose the exact colors and size to match your room! Then you can get to cozy up and have the pleasure of knowing that you made your beanbag all on your own. This beanbag can also be used as storage for all those stuffed animals you have lying around, or for some extra blankets and pillows that need a good hiding spot! Keep in mind that the measurements given are for a child-sized chair. Feel free to adjust accordingly! BY: GITTY KAY

Sewing machine or seamstress Okay, so there’s one catch to this project: You’ll need a sewing machine. Or a good friend with a sewing machine. Or you can do what I did and have a seamstress do the sewing. I still like to consider that a do-ityourself project; after all, I chose the fabric, cut it out, took it to the seamstress, showed her what to do, picked it up from the seamstress, and stuffed it — all on my own!

Fabric

THE PERFECT TIME TO BUILD YOUR SON'S MUSIC SKILLS.

• You’ll need two pieces of fabric, each one measuring 45” x 32”. • Choose fabric that’s heavyweight and has a bit of a stretch to it. • You can use the same fabric for both sides, choose coordinating patterns, or go with a color-block look. I chose a heather gray jersey for one side and a soft blue velour stripe for the other. • Be sure the fabric has a comfortable texture since you’ll be spending lots of cuddle time on it!

Zipper 22” long

Beanbag filler You’ll need 3.5 cubic feet (or 100 liters) of filler. You can use any of the following filler options: • Beanbag filling (have a vacuum cleaner on hand) • Shredded memory foam • Polyester fiber fill • Stuffed animals • Pillows and blankets You’ll also need:

Let’s get started! 1. Cut both pieces of fabric to measure 45” x 32”. 2. Place them right sides facing each other. 3. Fold them lengthwise, with the open ends on top. 4. Measure 6” from the top right corner. 5. Draw a rounded edge, as shown. 6. Cut at the drawn line to round the end. 7. If you’re using a sewing machine, follow the next two steps. If you’re taking it to a seamstress, guide her on how to sew the fabric by following steps 8 and 9. 8. Open the folded fabrics. With the right sides still facing each other, sew down the two long sides and the rounded end, forming a Ushaped bag. Be sure to make the seam strong! 9. Turn the fabric right side out. Refold the open end the opposite way, as shown, and sew in the zipper. 10. Fill the beanbag with the filling of your choice.

Enjoy cozying up! 1

I see things, from behind my tin cup. See the emotions, the tears, the laughter. See the people in the swell of humanity that surrounds me, moving past me, the old woman, a hump of rags on a dirty, busy street. See the curious child, all bright and sparkling eyes and blond curls, with questions at every turn. See the busy mother, always rushing, rushing, rushing. Questions unanswered, voice cut off, the sparkle dims. Places to go, people to meet. See the stressed family, teenagers looking longingly into the window of expensive boutiques, at shoes they will never buy. See the dejected, lonely, poor and weak, all squaring their shoulders, facing the world. And me, I sit there, frozen in time, watching as the world moves past me in a blur of rushing color, to carpool, lunch dates and dentist appointments.

Today was that kind of day, the day that sucks all the energy out of me, leaving me shattered. I didn’t think it would be so hard with my husband out of a job. The endless stream of expenses, and the boiler is breaking, I know, I just don’t want to say it because then we’ll have to fix it with money we don’t have. Noami’s braces, the kids’ clothes, their shoes... Life swirls around me, a never-ending mantra of no money, no money, no money. Nothing to do, nowhere to turn. I wrap my son in his thick winter coat; I need some things from the grocery to make an easy supper before I fall apart. The cold hits me as I step out, a frigid curtain that makes the breath freeze in my throat. So cold, winter swirls about me, the snow moving in a cruel dance before my eyes. Eyes smarting, I trudge on. I forgot that it gets this cold, forgot the frigid iciness of winter seeping into my very bones. I huddle deeper into my pathetic pile of blankets, hoping that the snow that whirls around me will spur people to toss a coin into my rusty cup. But this is not to be. The few people braving the streets step gingerly around the old pile of rags, without even noticing the huddled old woman nestled within. I feel a sudden wetness on my cheeks, feel burning tears stream down my face. I can’t


believe I’m crying. I thought that the years on the street had hardened me dry. Tight as I pull the blankets around me, I can’t find even a modicum of warmth.

Perhaps it is the cold that makes me notice her, the woman who sits at the corner, pitiful, forgotten, alone. I shudder to think how cold she must be; only a few tattered blankets shelter her against the rain and snow that storm mercilessly around us.

winter swirls about me, the snow moving in a cruel dance before my eyes. The biting wind whips at me, icy knives of sleet to my face, and still, I can’t get her out of my mind. How desperate she must be to come to this, I think to myself, and breathe past the sudden thickness in my throat. My heart blooms with a burst of gratitude for the little we do have, because we really have so much. My son runs in front of me, hands outstretched to catch the falling snow. I hear his steps before I see him, the desperate staccato of footsteps on the icy street. He is a handsome child, cheeks ruddy from the cold, huge eyes darting to and fro. A lost child.

how her shaking hands curl pitifully around her tin cup. And suddenly, before my mind can grasp it, I am walking in the opposite direction, crossing the street, marching into the inviting warmth of the cafe at the corner. “One large coffee,” I say to the girl at the counter and watch as she takes a cup and fills it up with frothy brown richness. “Three dollars,” she says, voice bored, nails rapping impatiently on the shiny counter as I fumble with my purse. Three dollars. That’s crazy. You need every penny! a voice whispers rebelliously in my ear, and I hold out the money before I can change my mind. The cold hits me again as I step out. It’s darker already, night creeping in though it is still early. I cross the street, walk until I reach her. I hold out the coffee with a shaking hand before I lose my nerve, see the confusion as she raises her eyes to meet mine. I think of what it must be like to live in a pile of crumpled rags on the street corner, ignored, despised, alone. I know loneliness. I know despair. Perhaps we are not so different after all. “Here,” I say softly, and lean forward to give her the cup. She holds out her hand, trembling, as if in a trance. As our eyes lock, I see a flicker of understanding in her sad gray eyes, and I hope she hears the words unspoken, the thoughts unsaid. And for a moment, the world is warm.

‫בס"ד‬

“Come!” I shout as he tears past me, my voice rusty from misuse. “Come, I’ll help you, little boy!” He turns around quickly, startled, and darts away as soon as he catches sight of me. “Mommy!” he sobs, more desperate than before as tears fall from his eyes, spilling onto his cheeks. I could have been a mommy too! I cry, but the howling winds rip the soundless shout from my throat. My eyes bleed tears that turn into ice on my cheeks, and something inside me breaks and dies.

Where is he? It’s dangerous for him in this cold, and my heart quickens as I imagine him running on the cold, empty street, all alone. I try to run, bags weighing me down on either side, snow thickening around me. Where is he, where could he — And suddenly I see him, turning the corner, small body but a blur in the white. He stops. Is he talking to the beggar woman at the corner? A million reprimands of “Don’t talk to strangers” die on my lips as I think of her, a woman just like me, the only one who noticed a lost little boy. I quicken my pace to catch up with him, see his eyes light up and face relax as he recognizes me. We are standing right next to the woman now, close enough to see how the cold has bleached her fingers white,

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.

BASIC FARFEL RECIPE

INGREDIENTS:

1 __________

small onion ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

1 __________

clove garlic, crushed ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

3 __________

T. oil ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

1 __________

(10 oz.) package of farfel ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

3 __________

cups water ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

2 __________

tsp. consomme (optional) ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

3 __________

shakes of paprika ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

1 __________

tsp. salt ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

¼ __________

tsp. pepper ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

DIRECTIONS:

Finely dice the onion. 1. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Place the pot over medium heat. Add oil and then add the diced onions. Allow to saute for about 10 minutes, stirring every so often to prevent burning. Add garlic and saute for an additional 3 minutes. 2. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Increase heat and add farfel, stirring it while it browns, about 2 minutes. 3. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Add water and spices. Bring to a boil. Lower flame so that the water continues to simmer, and cook for an additional 20 minutes, or until the water is mostly absorbed. 4. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ INSTRUCTIONS FOR PUTTING AWAY THE FOOD:

Allow to cool at room temperature until the pot is no longer hot to the touch, and then place in the fridge, well covered. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ TIPS:

If short on time, you can skip the sauteed onions and bake farfel in the oven: First put the farfel, crushed garlic and the oil into a pan and place it in the oven for 10 minutes at 350°. Then remove the pan, add the water and spices, cover well, and allow to bake for another hour. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ After farfel is baked or cooked, fluff it with a fork to prevent clumps. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ For the farfel to have the right texture, shut the flame before it is entirely cooked through. It will swell some more while the water is fully absorbed. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

If you live in Monsey, you’re probably familiar with, and perhaps annoyed by, the Canada goose. But how much do you know about these waterfowl besides the fact that they’re everywhere and honk a lot? Here are a few tidbits to get you better acquainted with these big, loud birds. IN CHARACTER Even though geese are categorized as waterfowl, they spend most of their time on land. Geese are very social animals, and the relationships that form in a flock are both amazing and amusing to watch. For instance, they have strong affections for others in their group. If a goose gets sick or is wounded, a couple of other geese may drop out of formation to help and protect their injured friend. Where populations are dense, Canada geese commonly form gang broods, which are groups of 20 to 100 goslings from different parents that move around and feed together accompanied by a few adults. This is sometimes cooperative, with families joining up so that some adults can watch the babies while the others forage for food. Often, though, joining a gang brood isn’t voluntary, and in those cases, dominant pairs of geese attack and kill other adults and absorb their broods into their own. Either way, joining a gang brood is good for goslings, since larger families can more easily control the best foraging spots.

152 / THE MONSEY VIEW / December 23, 2020 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

IN FLIGHT In Asia, bar-headed geese regularly migrate over the Himalayan mountain range — and even over Mount Everest at an altitude of 30,750 feet, where the air is thin and the temperatures drop to -60 degrees! Canada geese usually fly in a large V-shaped formation for efficiency, with one bird in the lead and the others trailing behind it in two diverging lines. There are two reasons for this. First, the V-formation makes the flock more energetically efficient, with vortices of air created by each goose’s flapping giving some lift to the birds behind it. Second, the formation makes it easier for the geese to communicate and maintain visual contact with each other.

A GOOSE CAN REACH 32 TO 37 INCHES IN LENGTH AND 8 TO 22 POUNDS IN WEIGHT.

Geese have an average lifespan of 20 to 25 years.

Geese use 10 different sounds, with the differing calls depending on the situation.


By: Esti Greenfeld

Once a year, adult geese will lose their flight and tail feathers. This process, which takes about six weeks, is called molting and renders the geese unable to fly until their new feathers have come in. Geese like to be near water during the molting season to be able to escape from predators.

Geese honk while in flight to enable communication and to encourage the flock to maintain a V-formation.

Some geese have serrated edges to their beaks that give them a toothy appearance, but it is an adaptation to their bill and not at all actual teeth.

THE GOOD AND THE BAD In the 1980s, after decades of poor hunting laws and unreliable habitats, geese were nearing extinction. During those years, less than 500,000 geese populated North American fields and landscapes. Over the past 40 years, however, much to the great delight of goose down–pluckers, geese have grown into a full-fledged society of their own, with over 5 million members of their breed vociferously occupying our landscapes. And we only have ourselves to blame. Over time, we’ve designed and created many spaces — think airports and parks — that possess all of the elements in which geese live and multiply: water, grass and unobstructed views. These prime habitats have turned the geese population into the queen of all nuisances. Aside from dining on our grass and crops and generally making themselves heard, the large size of their flocks mean they are the greatest hazards in airports. To avoid bird-aircraft collisions, employees at some airfields try deterring the geese by playing goose alarm calls, and when that doesn’t work, they often proceed with a ceremony of fireworks...

A GROUP OF GEESE IS CALLED A SKEIN IN FLIGHT, A GAGGLE ON THE GROUND, AND A FLOCK ANYWHERE.

Despite their naughtiness, these large birds do provide us with some benefits: their down. Those in the downharvesting industry remove goose down from the birds’ fur for people to enjoy. It takes the down from approximately 75+ birds (!) to make an average comforter.

‫פרשת ויגש‬

I met your melamed today. He gave me a great report!

So what do you say?

It’s… it’s stunning! What a beautiful stone!

I decided that such an exceptional student deserves a special gift!

Keep it well, son. It’s worth a lot! Make sure it doesn’t get scratched, because that will lower its value.

Yes, Tatty.

Did anything happen? Oy, such an ugly crack!

154 / THE MONSEY VIEW


A day later:

I ordered the best jewelsmiths. We’ll see what they say about the crack. Who knows, maybe they could fix it…

No, Tatty will be angry if I hide it from him. I’d better tell him about it.

I hope…

Even if I will succeed in fixing it, there will always be a sign of the crack. I can’t help you.

No, it’s impossible. It will never be as beautiful as it was.

My sir, I have a suggestion for you: I’d like to emboss beautiful engravings on the stone with your son’s name and special embellishments —

And the scratch will look like a part of the embossment.

Not worth the bother.

Several weeks later:

Let’s hope so.

It’s… it’s unbelievable! It’s much more beautiful than before!

The crack was all for the best!

WHAT DOES THIS TELL US? “I am Yosef your brother,” Yosef said to his brothers who didn’t recognize him. The brothers looked at him in shocked silence. They deeply regretted selling him and were angry at themselves. Yosef told them, “Do not be sad… it was for our sustenance that Hashem sent me before you.” Yosef is saying, “I had a mission. There was a reason I was sold. Hashem — not you — sent me here, and it was all for the best, so that our father and yourselves would have food throughout the hunger.” Everything Hashem does is for the best! (The Dubno Maggid)

I wasn’t careful enough. Tatty warned me about this, and he’ll be upset. Maybe I shouldn’t tell him? Should I hide the stone?
