The doctor gave me the wrong type of Iron because it never went up. With your type it went up right away with a fraction of the dose.”

Dear David Nissen, You said that you would help me with my H. Pylori & Thrush. And it did the job. Whereas my doctor’s medication was useless. I am very thankful.”

To Rabbi David Nissen, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for being the right messenger in helping me get out of my problem.”

I’ve been giving my kids as you instructed. It appears the never ending cycle of strep has finally come to an end!

I came to you for help with my Osteoporosis. I followed your regimen for several months until my next bone density test. My bones are completely restored. I never thought this was possible!”

You helped me with my son’s Coxsackievirus. It went away in less than a week!”

Can you tell me why specifically I started feeling better after just one day? Pretty amazing. Which vitamin/s do you think is most responsible for the reduction in fatigue.”

I was so pleased and excited when my Eczema totally disappeared after being treated by David Nissen. I had gone to a top dermatologist who was unable to help me after months of treatment. After only two weeks of D. Nissen’s regimen my skin was perfectly clear.”

...the pains in my shoulders are completely gone. I just had another X-ray and the calcification is 95 percent resolved!”

…the Lyme disease is gone!”

I’m writing to express my thanks and amazement about how my son, age 17, who had quite a severe problem with frequent, heavy nosebleeds experienced an astonishing improvement and cure within a week or 2! We had a miracle through Mr. Nissen’s advice.”

My son was scheduled for ear tubes. I followed your recommendation… the ENT cancelled the procedure!”

After so many attempts to resolve my health issue, I was shocked to see positive results after only one week of being under your care. I feel like a new person, Baruch Hashem! Thank you so much for being the right shliach!”

Thank you so much for a great publication. We all look forward to getting it every week. I’ve been meaning to write to you for a really long time — ever since the issue where potato kugel was featured in the recipe section. I’d like to share with your readership an awesome tip for keeping potato kugel white that has never failed. When making the batter, dissolve a little bit (1/4 or 1/8 tsp.; I never measure) of vitamin C powder (I use the Freeda brand) in some water and add it to the mixture. The acid keeps the kugel bright white and looking super-appetizing without contributing any flavor at all. Also, if you can send me the recipe of the meatballs on skewers that had a Middle Eastern flavor I would most appreciate it. I’m usually wary of making food with new flavors for my kids because they aren’t very adventurous. They like the stuff they know. But this time I made an exception and I’m glad I did! I called it falafel-flavored meatballs and I didn’t have a single one left over! Unfortunately, I misplaced the paper before I put it into my binder as a definite keeper. Thank you so much!

KIDS COLLECTING Now that it is the season in which mosdos send home pushkas and trinkets for children to sell, I think it’s very important to remind mothers that they should know where their children are at every moment. Where are your kids collecting? Whose doors are being knocked upon? Is there a parental chaperone? There is inherent danger in children knocking on strangers’ doors, even here in the heimishe community. Dear parents: Know where your kids go, and maybe even go along with them. Your child’s safety is never a waste of time. A Mother M&S SHOE REPAIR

RE: THE TRUTH ABOUT KOLLEL LIFE Firstly, I want to thank you for your weekly paper. I find the articles very interesting and informative, and many of them uplifting. And now, I would like to respond to the letter in issue #80 regarding kollel life. I grew up in Monsey and was always proud of my hometown. Monsey was a kollel town imbued with Torah values and characterized by warmth and simplicity. Bais Medrash Elyon was actually the forerunner of the many kollelim that baruch Hashem today illuminate America with the glow of Torah. The introduction of kollelim has transformed the spiritual desert lamented by our pre-war rosh yeshivos into a blossoming, vibrant makom Torah! This is why I was so hurt when I read the letter in your inbox. Doesn’t it go against the grain of all that we live for? R’ Yisroel Salanter once gave a powerful drasha on the great zechus of hachaskes hatorah — supporting talmidei chachamim. The townspeople were puzzled. Why did the Rav say that to us — impoverished villagers? We can barely make ends meet ourselves, let alone support talmidei chachamim. To which R’ Yisroel exclaimed, “Ihr kent nisht l’maaseh, darft ihr uber nisht vilen?” If one can’t possibly be a kollel wife, shouldn’t she at least have the zechus of aspiring to such a life?! By attacking the kollel lifestyle, the symbol of devotion and dedication for Torah, the letter writer was undermining the ahavas hatorah of the readers on all levels, not only the kollel families but also those who are trying their best to bring learning into their working schedule! When a wealthy father of a Radimer talmid visited the Chofetz Chaim’s home and saw the poverty calling from every corner, he commented, “This is the life of a ben Torah? How can I let my son follow this derech?” The Chofetz Chaim quoted the mishna: Kach hi darka shel Torah: a life of simplicity, lacking material comfort.

Im ata osa kein: only if you do so, ashrecha v’tov lach: can you feel the joy of a Torah life! A spectator might see only the picture of a harried kollel wife and not feel the inner joy and happiness with her lot! Yet, her children generally do! They grow up with a sense of privilege. They absorb the contentment and satisfaction. Children from such homes are not in any way lacking more than other children; on the contrary. By showing respect for limudei torah, you are instilling she’ifos for Torah in your children and giving them the chance to grow up as talmidei chachamim. As history has shown, many of our gedolim were children of simple folk who loved Torah with their whole being, thereby instilling a passion for Torah. May we all be zoche that: ‫ כלנו יודעי שמם‬...‫ונהיה אנחנו וצאצאינו‬ .‫ולומדי תורתך לשמה‬ C.T.

RE: SAME-DAY RETURNS Thank you for writing about the same-day return store policy. I hope that store owners will take it into consideration. I bought two pairs of shoes for my boys one afternoon. I came home and my husband didn’t like them, so I went back to the store the next morning, not even twenty-four hours later, to return it. I was told that I can only get store credit because I had paid with a credit card, with the excuse that the computer can’t do it. I work in a store too and the computer can refund credit cards easily. I asked someone to use my credit, but the store owner wouldn’t let! Now I have well-needed money sitting in a store for a few months. Please, store owners, reconsider that policy so we should want to shop in your stores again. Another Frustrated Customer

RE: SAME-DAY RETURNS So coming from the other side, I’d like to give you the perspective

of what customers can sometimes do, and why we are forced to put some policies in place. KA”H everyone has large families and many customers want everyone matching. So some people come in and clear out a nice portion of our inventory, and often come back to return everything. If it’s not everything, then they keep one thing out of the whole pile. Why not? It doesn’t cost them anything to do that, because they get their money back, so what’s the problem? In the meantime, we could’ve sold that merchandise to someone else. If a customer is told that the policy is only same-day money back, she will think before she takes everything, and if she is seriously considering it, and then decides to return the stuff, she’ll make the effort to get the merchandise back on time. Now if someone was doing it in a large, commercial store, they have enough stock and enough money that the store can survive with customers who shop in this manner. However, as small Jewish stores, we can’t. Therefore, our policies are much harder and stricter than the large stores. While I’m on the subject, I’d like to point out that everything comes with wash and care instructions and if something doesn’t, then you should treat it with utmost respect and dry clean it, or you use your seichel and treat the spots. If you wash a white sweater with a black sock in the washer, of course it’s going to change colors a bit. If you dry a skirt, of course it’s going to shrink. Why do stores have to swallow the cost of your item because you made a mistake? A Frustrated Saleslady

RE: ADVANCE PLANNER I’d like to share two Pesach recipes for the reader who asked for it. Delicious fruit leather: Peel 12 apples and cut each into four (Cortland is best). Cook them for about

three hours with just a little water. Then blend them with the hand blender and spread a thin layer with a spatula onto a lined cookie sheet. Bake for 2.5 hours. I also make snow kisses for the children: Beat six egg whites and one cup sugar. Then put the snow into a pastry bag with a tip and make little flowers. Bake on 200° for about two hours. Preparing for Pesach

OLD-FASHIONED QUALITY TIME As avid readers of The Monsey View, there are many features that we, as a family, enjoy reading. I especially find the weekly recipes to be practical and family friendly. However, I was disappointed by the standards that your feature “A Monsey Mid-Winter Staycation” with hotel selections presented. Monsey has been founded upon Torah values and continues to be an ihr v’aim b’Yisroel with its focus on raising ehrliche Yiddishe kinderlach with old-fashioned values. We are people with meager means that know how to stretch the dollar and take pride in our simplicity. That makes us a truly unique community. The Monsey mothers I know are thrilled to bake cookies with their children, buy some crafts in local stores, or do some prePesach cleaning in an enjoyable family setting. Let’s not raise the standards of our Torah’dige community. With everyone’s best interest in mind, S.L.

DANGER AWARENESS Lollypops (and hard candy), for little kids are a big choking hazard! My three-year-old son excitedly came home from cheder with an upsherin pekela this week. He quickly unpacked its contents and to my horror there was a hard lollipop included between the nosh. I sat him down at the kitchen table to enjoy his treats. At that moment I also had to bathe another child. Having this uneasy feeling about the lollipop, I told my son to come near the bathroom where I can watch him eat the lollipop. It didn’t take long and my son started crying and choking (yes, you guessed it) on the lollipop. I looked into his mouth and my heart skipped a beat. I could clearly see the whole lollypop (without the stick) situated right in the middle of his throat. I quickly stuck my finger into his mouth (which may not have been the right way to proceed) and b’chasdei Hashem was able to take out the whole lollypop. I shudder to think what may have happened had he still been sitting and eating at the kitchen table and not near me where I noticed him choking right away. Hashem, in His infinite kindness, saved my little tzadik’l from harm. I beg of all mothers out there: Please remember that lollipops are a choking hazard for your child! Let’s not rely on nissim. Let’s be responsible mommies and give our kids age-appropriate nosh. With much gratitude to Hashem, T. D.

As told to: Basya Lev

I AM NOT the balabusta type who wakes up with the birds to cook up a storm or tackle whatever household chores were abandoned the previous night. But one particular Monday night was different. My sleep had been disrupted more than once by my baby, which is not unusual. When I finally settled him at 5 a.m., the unusual happened. My legs carried me to the laundry room and my tired hands threw in a load of laundry. My older son woke me up shortly after with the grand news that he had no shirt. If anyone ever experienced such an episode, they can grasp my joy. I jumped out of bed, transferred one shirt to the dryer and voila, my morning was rescued. No missed bus and he was able to be on time for minyan. I deeply felt the yad Hashem, seemingly simple, but so sweet!

Session 12

A Yeshiva Life of Torah and Health By: Basya Kovacs, Nutrition Counselor

The Long-Term Plan If you have been following this column the past several months, you probably realize by now that our approach to eating well and losing weight is unique in that we don’t believe that “dieting” is the key to long-term weight loss. That’s right — you read that correctly! Nutrition by Tanya’s plan is not a diet! Dieting implies temporary calorie cutting or lifestyle changes in order to lose weight. Rather we believe in sticking to a food plan that is sustainable and realistic, in order to not only lose weight and become healthier, but to keep the weight off long term. This is why we never ask anyone to follow any sort of food plan that cannot be sustained long term. The goal is to find a healthy balance that allows you to lose weight at a steady pace and keep it off, while still making room for real life. Are we really going to live the

rest of our lives without bread or challah, nosh, or without partaking in yom tov treats and special events? Of course not! That’s why working those foods into your plan, in moderation, works better than cutting it all out and going on a “diet.” Over the past few weeks we have discussed exercise, best and worse food options, portion control, how to keep your metabolism running, how to choose well on Shabbos, what to do when you are faced with temptation, how to celebrate yom tov in moderation and other related topics. Instead of thinking of your new habits as temporary, it is good to think about them as your new way of life. Here is a review of ten important tools that should eventually become deeply ingrained habits. 1. Be patient and don’t succumb to fad diets or fast-track plans. They

THE BALANCING BOCHUR: Sruli Englander* Height: 5'8 | Starting weight: 180 pounds Current weight: 162.25 pounds | Weight lost this week: 3 pounds I am so surprised to see that I lost more weight this week than I did during some of the earlier weeks on my plan. I always thought that you lose the fastest at the beginning and after a few weeks the weight loss slows down, but I see that it doesn’t always work that way. I think it’s because it’s getting easier for me to stick to the plan perfectly, and the weeks where I lost less was because some of my choices weren’t great. I am so happy that my weight loss doesn’t have to slow down! This is motivating me to keep going even though this column is finishing!

always backfire. The only real longterm solution is the slow and steady loss that comes from changing your habits for the long haul. Eat regularly throughout the day. Skipping meals is one of the destructive dieting moves. This may even mean eating when you are not particularly hungry. Don’t underestimate the power of vegetables. Most people don’t like the feeling of being hungry, but if you fill up on protein, starches, and fats alone, you are probably eating too many calories. Choose well. Whole grains will keep you full longer than refined grains, and you will end up eating less. Lean proteins, lowfat cheeses and (healthy) sugar substitutes are easy ways to cut calories while staying full. Keep portion control in mind. Just because something is good for you doesn’t mean it should be eaten freely. How much you eat is just as important as what you eat. Work on your Shabbos habits: Partaking in a donut on Chanukah or a slice of cheesecake on Shavuos is very different than going off track every single week. It is not worth it to undo a whole week’s worth of proper eating every single Shabbos. Cheat responsibly. If you are going out to eat or having a “special” treat several times a week, it is very dif-

ficult to lose weight. Make sure your “cheats” are rare, planned well and portion controlled. 8. Stay hydrated and get in some exercise. Doing so will keep your metabolism running at its peak and often helps people make better food choices 9. Don’t give up. If you find yourself off track, get back on as soon as possible, without prolonging the process. Think of it as a small setback and continue eating carefully and choosing well. 10. Make sure you have support. Reach out to people who can encourage you. Explain your choices to friends or family members that may not be on board, so that they become a help rather than a hindrance, or see a professional nutrition counselor if you feel you need extra guidance or accountability. Finally, remember that real change takes time, and good eating habits are not formed overnight. But of course, it’s worth the effort! Good luck with your healthy new lifestyle! Stay in touch!

Ramapo Tax Bills Running Late, but Payments Still Due on Time (The Journal News) A COMPUTER PROBLEM may have prevented the Town of Ramapo from generating its annual tax bills for several weeks, but payments are still due at the end of this month. The lateness is due to a software problem that prevented the bills from being printed and sent out by January 5th, as originally planned. The holdup is estimated to have af-

fected approximately half of Ramapo property owners who pay their taxes online and not through their mortgages. According to information on the town website, bills were sent out on January 18th, with payments due, as always, on January 31st. Despite the late-arriving bills, penalties will be assessed for every day of lateness as

required by state law. Ramapo residents who have not yet received their bills are encouraged to call Nathan Oberman, the town’s receiver of taxes at 357-5100, extension 247 to find out the amount due. Bills can be paid online at www. or in person at Town Hall, with a 24-hour dropbox available to accept payments.

Cuomo Cracking Down on Toll Evaders (Governor Cuomo’s Office) NEW REGULATIONS PUT into effect by Governor Andrew Cuomo will allow the Department of Motor Vehicles to suspend the registrations of drivers who repeatedly fail to pay their tolls. The new policies, designed to encourage motorists to pay up, will affect those who ditch three or more toll violations within a fiveyear period and commercial drivers who fail to pay $200 or more in tolls over the same amount of time. “Toll evaders flaunt the law and

do so on the backs of hard working New Yorkers who play by the rules,” said Cuomo. “This action provides new tools to ensure these scofflaws pay their fair share, as well as support new automatic tolling initiatives that will decrease congestion and modernize New York’s transportation system.” The new rules apply to all New York tolling authorities, including Metropolitan Transportation Au- York and New Jersey and the New thority, the Port Authority of New York State Thruway.

Rockland May Become First in NY to Ban Tobacco Sales in Pharmacies (The Journal News) A MEASURE THAT passed the Rockland County Legislature by a unanimous vote would ban tobacco sales in pharmacies if approved by County Executive Ed Day. The bill was proposed by Legislator Nancy Low-Hogan of South Nyack and would prevent drug stores from selling cigarettes, cigars, chewing tobacco, e-cigs, powdered tobacco and all smoking paraphernalia. Other

54 / THE MONSEY VIEW / January 25, 2017 / 845.600.8484

retailers would still be permitted to sell tobacco and tobacco products. “It doesn’t make sense that a place we go to pick up a prescription or other item intended to boost our health would also be a place that sells a product that can damage our health,” said Low-Hogan. Violators would be slapped with a $2,000 fine for each offense if the bill is approved by Day. The county

executive promised to research the issue in order to make sure that it is legal and would not “cause any unintended consequences or pose an undue burden to businesses.” According to the Centers for Disease Control, smoking tobacco is the number one cause of preventable death in the United States, with almost half a million people dying of tobacco-related causes every year.

Stone Recap: Malka’la speaks to the audience openly and the audience responds in the only way they could, giving her as much money as they possibly can. One member of the audience asks her to speak at another party in the city, but Malka’la just wants to go home. Pessy apologizes to Gella for suggesting the shidduch. “NO. I WAS BLINDED,” Gella told Pessy. “I was so, so obtuse. Because often we are, aren’t we? Especially with shidduchim, and all sorts of relationships. Hakol b’chezkas siman — it’s there. Right in front of our eyes. I’d like you to suggest Heshy for Malka’la,” Gella whispered urgently. “Please. Before she goes home.” She was beyond caring at this point. Dignity was just one thing she hadn’t seen in her guest until

much.” But Malka’la wasn’t willing to stay. The woman in the furs, silks, and fine shoes was still not giving up, trying with friendliness, with bribes, cajoling. “Five thousand dollars. Just one more week. If you stay in the city, people will give. There’s so much more opportunity. I will personally go around to my friends with you, to help you collect funds.” Malka’la looked at the woman

His first wife had been about her. Nice family. Nice girl. And it had hurt her son so much. tonight. Compatibility was another. And… her son. She hadn’t seen him clearly. His motivation in helping this stranger, this woman. How maybe, maybe he was interested in this shidduch, had been all along. His shidduch wasn’t about her. It was about him finding a wife, a home. His first wife had been about her. Nice family. Nice girl. And it had hurt her son so much. Maybe… her eyes were finally opened tonight. “I want her. Very

with those clear, assured eyes of hers. If there had been a battle in her, the lines were already redrawn. “I came here, and I gave myself a certain amount of time. That time is up. It was in that time that all the brachah I needed could flow in — and it did. I’m not disappointed, I’m grateful. I got helped. It’s all the help I can get.” “Raising children is expensive,” the woman said, her thinly shaped eyebrows threatening Malka’la into

giving her what she wanted now. “Raising children is very expensive,” Malka’la agreed. “Being a mother is priceless.” “Can we fly you in? We’ll fly you back in. You go home, and come back.” Another short battle waged in Malka’las heart, but was quickly won. Malka’la laughed. “Your party, too, will earn you whatever it is it was meant to earn. You can fly me in next year. For now, I need another week far less than I need to hug each child, long and deep, and assure them I am there. To stay.” “Let’s talk by phone,” the woman said, resigned. Gella looked on, forgetting why she had donned a plastic apron, to collect plates of melting ice cream bleeding into leftover maraschino cherries. This side of Malka’la; it was new. Pessy neared Malka’la and asked her aside, into the study. The door sang and closed behind them, Gella following them with prayerful eyes. This was the time. Let Malka’la say yes to Heshy. Pessy handed Malka’la a document-sized manila envelope brim-

January 25, 2017 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 59 / 845.600.8484

ming with bills. “It’s more than we expected. And you spoke… better than any of us could have imagined. Thank you. Thank you. There’s over fifteen thousand dollars in there. Well deserved.” Malka’la accepted the gift wordlessly. This is about you, she thought, imagining her precious ones at home. This is about you, she thought, thinking of the loving directing Hand that guided her here, and guided her in her talk with the women of Monsey, and guided her to see herself in a new light, as a brave widow doing her best for the people she loved. This is about you, she thought, picturing Nachman’s face, now hazy and so far and fading. “And I want to give you this linen set, as a gift,” Pessy added. “I won the raffle, but I don’t need it. Gella donated it.” Malka’la lifted the fine fabric, a soft peach with gold flowers. It reminded her of the gift she had given her mother on the night of her wedding. It was so… womanly. So subtle and powerfully beautiful. “Thank you,” she breathed. “Our people are generous. So giving. So pure. If I was able to give back tonight, if just for a few moments of psichas halev, I’m grateful.” “I want to ask something of you. To give back. Gella…” Malka’la looked at Pessy, fear and curiosity awakening. “Sure.” “Gella has a son. He’s a wonderful pers—” “For me?” “Yes. He’s been alone for a long time. A kohen. Have you met him?” “I have.” “And?” “And…” Malka’la repeated. She was lost in thought. Gella. That man who picked her up from the airport; big car, leather seats. Having lived in

the Kahn house for so many nights and days. And… her children. Her family. “He will support you. He will care for your children. He will bring you here, and give you a home, and he’ll be a husband to you. He’s a very good person.” M a l k a’ l a brought her gaze back home, and looked at Pessy. “I would love to say yes, I’ll think about it. That I’ll consider it. I would like to say that,” Malka’la said with a generous heart, her hands folded together in front of her throat. “I’d say it, if only to express how much the Kahns have done for me, and to acknowledge that we truly are family. We will forever be entwined, because we were brought together for a reason.” She looked down for a moment, then back at Pessy. “But I can’t. I promised my parents I wouldn’t put roots down

mix of impressions inside her. The party had been a raving success. The night had been full. The disappointment of Malka’las refusal hurt like a welt to the heart. How surprising. This afternoon, she couldn’t imagine that she’d feel let down by Malka’la’s refusal to meet with her son. It was late, very late. Tomorrow, at dawn, Malka’la was departing American soil. “Heshy will drive you to the airport tomorrow morning. Is that okay?”

Nothing, no words, could thank a person for giving life. Only life could thank life. Living life fully. Perhaps… rebuilding. With Gella’s son. in America. That I was always and forever returning to Yerushalayim. It was a promise I made to them, but it was for myself. To remember my center. To stay true to my compass even while I let myself go far, far away. I only went so far from the center that holds me so I can bring myself back home. I have to go home. My children. My family. My city. My life. I am first and foremost a mother.” “You can meet him tonight. And then you’ll know…” “I already know.” “You don’t want him, then?” “We can meet in Yerushalayim.” Gella drove Malka’la home, a

62 / THE MONSEY VIEW / January 25, 2017 / 845.600.8484

“Yes,” Malka’la said. There was so little time in which to pack her bags, catch a few winks of sleep. Tomorrow, her plane would touch down on the whitewashed land of her ancestors. She’d take a monit through the winding desert roads lined with palm trees. She’d come home, and there would be her children— I didn’t even buy them gifts, she realized. Nothing. It was sad. This trip was nothing like it had been in her fantasy, before she came. There was still so much to do. She sat down to pen a few warm words to her host and benefac-

tor, Gella. She put her pen down. Nothing, no words, could thank a person for giving life. Only life could thank life. Living life fully. Perhaps… rebuilding. With Gella’s son. She placed all of her belongings in her valise. She spent a few short hours tossing, before giving up on her sleep. Tomorrow’s sleep would be in her own bed. Not as comfortable, way more familiar. And at dawn, when the sun rose from its purple blankets, she got into Heshy Kahn’s car, settled onto its toasty white seats, and spoke from her heart. She didn’t know if he would follow her to Eretz Yisrael. But she owed Gella this much, the option, the opportunity, a window. “I bought some things. For your children. I imagine you didn’t have time to shop,” he said, before dropping her off and placing her luggage on a large cart. He placed a large shopping bag, filled with what rattled like wood and metal toys, on top of her luggage. He gave her a bag of sweets. “For your children. Every mother wants to bring something home .” THE END Chany Rosengarten authors columns and serialized novels in leading publications. She can be reached at gchanyg@

Spiced Fish

By Sussy Kraus

The collection of fish recipes below have not only been tried, but enjoyed Shabbos after Shabbos, meal after meal, by our family and guests, neighbors and friends, and I hope that you will enjoy it as well. It also gives you a nice try on all the different spices.



INGREDIENTS: 6-8 slices salmon fillet 1 large red pepper, diced 5 cloves of garlic, peeled and sliced 1 jalapeno pepper, thinly sliced ½ cup oil 1 T. paprika 1 ½ tsp. salt 1 tsp. black pepper 1 tsp. turmeric 1 tsp. coriander ½ tsp. cayenne pepper

DIRECTIONS: 1. Place fish, skin down in a 9x13” roaster pan. 2. In a separate bowl, mix all the rest of the ingredients and spoon over the fish slices. Add water to barely cover the fish and let simmer on medium flame until most of the water is absorbed. 3. Alternatively, you can bake it in the oven (without the water) for 25 minutes. The texture of the fish is very different when cooked or baked, but either way it is very good. 4. Keep this fish on a hot plate or in a warmer until serving. If you have any leftovers after Shabbos or Yom Tov, just pop it in the microwave for 30 seconds and enjoy it for lunch. This fish pairs very well with chummus.

A good friend of mine who’s half Tunisian, half Yemenite shared this recipe with me about twelve years ago. I have shared this with many friends already and it has won first place over many other fish recipes. Even my mother-in-law adopted it as her favorite fish dish.

LEMON-PEPPER SALMON This recipe is one of the easiest ways to prepare salmon fish. It is effortless, delicious and 100% sugar free and fat free.

INGREDIENTS: 4 slices salmon fillet 3 T. Lemon Pepper 1 tsp. black pepper

DIRECTIONS: 1. It is best to ask your fish seller to remove the skin from the fillet or you can skin it yourself with a sharp flat knife. Put the fish, skin down and place the knife between the skin and the flesh. With your fingers, hold onto the skin and start moving the knife inwards very close to the skin until the entire skin is removed. 2. Mix the lemon pepper and black pepper well. Sprinkle the fish very generously with the lemon pepper on both sides until well coated. 3. Bake in a preheated oven on 400° for 14 minutes, then on broil for 4 minutes. If you are baking it on Yom Tov when you cannot change the oven temperature, 20 minutes on 350° is fine too. The longer you bake it, the dryer it becomes, so don’t leave it for too long. 4. Keep it at room temperature until serving. Refrigerated leftovers can be used for a delicious fish salad placed on crusty garlic bread which can be made from leftover challah.

MOROCCAN FISH This recipe was adopted by our entire family as a very welcome change on Shabbos or Yom Tov. It is also very low in sugar and a great alternative to the usual sweet Shabbos fish. It is best served warm or at room temperature so you can take it out of the fridge an hour before serving.

INGREDIENTS: 6-8 slices salmon fillet 1 tall can tomato juice 1 red pepper, diced 1 head of garlic, sliced thinly 1 fresh jalapeno pepper (optional) ½ cup olive oil 2 T. sugar 1 T. paprika 1 tsp. salt 1 tsp. black pepper ½ tsp. cayenne pepper (or more, depending on the heat level you like)

DIRECTIONS: 1. Mix all ingredients, except for the fish, in a pot and let simmer for 15-20 minutes until sauce thickens a bit. Add the fish and continue to cook for another 10 minutes. Optional addition: Add a can of chick peas into the pot along with the fish.

hen you walk through the spice aisle in the supermarket, you see an array of bottles in all styles and sizes of brownish, greenish or reddish powders. Some spices look relatively fresh, while other spices look like they were scooped out of the deserts on Mars and bottled. Unfortunately, this is the only view many people have of spices — mostly uninteresting, used only because recipes call for them. If the appearance of spices were to reflect their real importance in the history of the world, the bottles would look like they’re filled with diamonds, rubies, emeralds and gold. Throughout the centuries, spices have inspired trade, exploration, war and poetry. The ground pepper you liberally sprinkle onto your salads, omelets and steak was once worth its weight in gold; the nutmeg you put into your cinnamon cake once drove a war that gained Manhattan for England. Many records that were discovered in expeditions around the world had detailed information about the practice of surgery and medicine in those eras. There’s lists of cures formed from herbs and spices; many of these are the same herbs and spices we use for everyday cooking. Hence, it is very likely that the most important use for spices in those years was their ability to heal. A very big factor of the importance of spices was the role they played in exploring new territories. Since it was used for preserving foods and healing the sick, they were very important for everyday life and people attempted to get to them even in faraway lands. Ever heard the Yiddish expression, “Gei vee de shvartze fefer vakst”? (In other words, “Get lost.”) that is because people have gone through danger and perils to get to the coveted spices, sometimes with no return… Nevertheless, the adventurous travel was sometimes rewarded in rare and beautiful forms of gold, silver, ivory, spices and new plant forms. Those lucky enough to acquire these precious commodities were wealthy men, men of nobility, royalty, highranking officials and a few very shrewd and clever merchants and businessmen. It is important to remember that

even though spices were exotic and flavorful and sure to open new culinary worlds, the primary reason for searching out those spices was their use as medicine. In the 1500s, when the “Spice Wars” were going on between the Portuguese and the Dutch, and later the Dutch and the English, nutmeg was one of the most important spices. And it was not because the Queen wanted a new dessert; nutmeg was known as a miracle cure for the plague, which killed more than 35,000 people in London in 1603. Spices did more than just increase some people’s fortunes; they were used for many decades as currency. In Judea, the religious people paid tithes (maaser) in cumin seeds. When Rome came under siege, the ransom included 3,000 pounds of peppercorns. During the fourteenth century, in Germany, one pound of nutmeg could be traded

for several oxen. At other times in history, rent would be paid in peppercorns, and a pound of pepper would serve to buy the freedom of a slave in France. Spices also seem to have been hyped for their help in dieting. (Apparently, people have been dieting since the beginning of time.) Clever marketing has also been around since the beginning of time! One other need has been filled with spices, and that was based on their strong scent. While we take for granted the good hygiene habits we have today, people did not necessarily have free access to water in ancient times. In other words, a town meeting would not be the most pleasant experience. Spices served as a way to perfume a room and the people in it. When common folk would have an audience with their king, they would first sit on spices to mask the other odors.

So, the next time you go to shake a little black pepper on your steak, perhaps you will pause and reflect on how you came to be eating what you are. It may come from a plastic bottle on the supermarket shelf, but it took a long, intricate route to get there.

SPICES AND THEIR HEALTH BENEFITS During the winter months and when fresh food wasn’t available,

spices made the same meat and rice palatable night after night, but seasoning food was not the most important role they played; they were used as medicine. People didn’t have antibiotics and cough suppressants; they had cumin and turmeric. In fact, many of our pharmaceuticals today are modeled after the healing properties of plants, herbs and spices. Prices of spices are by far not what they used to be in the trader’s era, but that doesn’t mean that they

aren’t a valuable part of a healthy diet. Many spices aid in digestion and nutrient absorption while adding a pleasing flavor to chicken and rice. It is so easy to have a variety of spices on hand. They don’t take much space in the kitchen, they don’t require chopping or preparing; just a simple shake of the bottle will do. Here are a few spices that are simple to incorporate into everyday meals.


Black pepper


Cardamom is used in alternative medicine to remove toxins. It has also been linked to anti-tumor activity. ›› Use it to make tea, or add it to coffee. ›› Flavor curries and rice dishes. ›› Give meat a wood-smoked flavor with a rub of cardamom, salt and pepper.

As common as we find it today, black pepper was one of the most sought-after and expensive spices during the spice trade era. It has been proven to lower blood lipids and inhibit cholesterol absorption. ›› Grind it onto anything, even sweet dishes. ›› Add it at the end of cooking because it becomes bitter with long periods of cooking.

Capsicum, the active ingredient in cayenne pepper, has been shown to increase circulation and contribute to weight loss. ›› Use it to flavor chilies, tacos and Cajun dishes. ›› Add it to tea or lemonade.

Cinnamon Cinnamon is popular in Chinese medicine for its antioxidant properties. It’s also been shown to enhance insulin sensitivity. HEALTH BOOST: Can lower blood sugar, triglycerides, LDL and total cholesterol in people with Type 2 diabetes. Aim for one-fourth to one-half teaspoon of cinnamon twice a day. ›› Toss it in oatmeal or other whole-grain breakfast cereals. ›› Sprinkle it on sweet potato fries, squash, carrots or other roasted vegetables. ›› Dust it on sautéed dark, leafy greens. ›› Mix it into black bean dishes. ›› Stir it into milk for an evening drink. ›› Boil cinnamon sticks in water to make a concentrated tea for a daily drink to control blood sugars.

82 / THE MONSEY VIEW / January 25, 2017 / 845.600.8484



Traditionally, cumin was added to foods to aid in digestion and the absorption of nutrients. Recently, cumin has been shown to have antibacterial qualities, especially associated with the digestive tract. ›› Use it to flavor chilies, lentil soups, chicken dishes, hummus, falafel and Mexican meals.

Ginger is often recommended for nausea and an upset stomach. It has also shown to have anti-inflammatory properties HEALTH BOOST: Can decrease motion sickness and nausea; may also relieve pain and swelling associated with arthritis. Doses used in clinical trials range from 500 to 2,000 mg of powdered ginger. (A quarter-size piece of fresh root contains about 1,000 mg.) More than 6,000 mg can cause stomach irritation. Ginger can also hinder blood clotting, so if you’re about to have surgery or are taking blood thinners or aspirin, be sure to talk to your doctor first. ›› Combine it with honey for a fresh tea. ›› Sprinkle it into smoothies or fresh juices. ›› Use it to flavor stir-fry dishes, soups and fish marinades.

Oregano Health Boost: A USDA study found that, gram for gram, oregano has the highest antioxidant activity of 27 fresh culinary herbs. ›› To spice up tomato soup, add 3/4 teaspoon oregano to 1 can. ›› Add 1/2 teaspoon to 2 cups pasta or pizza sauce. ›› Sprinkle on pizza and any tomatobased dish.

Rosemary HEALTH BOOST: Stops gene mutations and may help prevent damage to the blood vessels that raise heart attack risk. ›› For a delicious chicken rub, combine 2 teaspoons rosemary leaves with 2 teaspoons seasoning salt and 1/2 teaspoon thyme leaves.

Turmeric Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric “has been shown to exhibit antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal and anticancer activities and thus has a potential against various malignant diseases, diabetes, allergies, arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease and other chronic illnesses,” according to a review in Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology. HEALTH BOOST: Curcumin inhibits the growth of cancer cells. Try to have 500 to 800 milligrams a day, says Bharat Aggarwal, PhD, a professor of cancer medicine at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. ›› Sprinkle it onto cauliflower. ›› Add it to curry dishes, marinades and salad dressings. ›› Mix it with honey to ease a cough. ›› Add it to a child’s milk, which could help with protein digestion, according to “The New Whole Foods Encyclopedia.” ›› Make tea with a quarter teaspoon of ground turmeric boiled in a cup of water and then strained. Add honey and lemon.

STORAGE GUIDE Spices last a while, but they lose their flavor over time, so buy them in usable quantities. The ground versions lose flavor faster than their whole seeds. Seal tightly and store in the dark, away from the heat of the oven, for optimal freshness. Never buy a spice rack with spices in it! Chances are they are not fresh, and there might be ones you won’t use. Choose the spices you desire and look for expiration dates. Shake the spice bottle to see if the spices clump together; choose only the free-flowing spices. If storing the spices in the freezer, do not let them sit on the counter or bring them near a heat source as moisture will form when exposed to warmer temperatures which will make the spices clump together and it becomes the perfect environment for bacteria to grow. Never spice your food directly from the bottle while it’s cooking. The heat and moisture will make the spices stale and will give the spices the status of either fleishig or milchig. Shake some of the spice into your hand or onto a spoon and then put it into the pot.

TRYING SPICES Before using a new spice, it is

84 / THE MONSEY VIEW / January 25, 2017 / 845.600.8484

good to see if you like the flavor it imparts in the food. It is very difficult to taste spices in their raw form. I have found that the simplest way to try a spice and discover its real flavor is to try it with mushrooms. Mushrooms themselves are pretty much tasteless, and take on the flavor of anything they are cooked with. I mix the spice with a bit of oil, coat the mushrooms and stir fry them for several minutes. The mushrooms will take on the delicious flavor of the spices and you can make an educated decision as to whether you would use it on your chicken cutlets. For example, take shawarma spice. Shawarma spice is a mix of paprika, garlic, cumin, turmeric, allspice, coriander and some brands have salt as well. (If yours doesn’t, add salt.) Mix the shawarma spice with some oil, coat the mushrooms and stir-fry in a preheated frying pan. You can do the same with any BBQ seasoning or Cajun mix. Cajun is also a seasoning mix which follows a particular style of cooking. Just like there is French or Italian Cuisine, there’s Cajun style. This style comes from a community in Southern Louisiana, started by descendants of French Canadians. Since people always like to try something new, they’ve also looked into Cajun style cook-

ing. What the Cajuns do, for example with seafood, is mix the spice, spray or brush the fish with oil, dip it into the spice mix on both sides, so it’s heavily spiced and then they fry it. it becomes a very spicy, blackened piece of fish. Cajun style is associa t e d w it h

a bit of a burnt flavor. Since spices burn faster than the fish cooks, it gives it that taste. So, if you ever burn your food, serve it and just say that it is Cajun style. You can make your own Cajun seasoning mix by mixing ›› 6 T. paprika ›› ¼ cup kosher salt ›› 2 T. ground black pepper ›› 2 t. ground white pepper ›› 2 T. garlic powder ›› 2 T. onion powder ›› 1 T. dried thyme ›› 1 T. cayenne pepper Some mixes have 2 T. of oregano and basil as well. It’s pretty flexible. Sussy Kraus is a Food Safety Consultant with a degree in Food Science, trainer for the new FSMA regulations and HACCP certified for Seafood and USDA.

“...I have experienced a strange syndrome whenever I have eaten out in a Chinese restaurant, especially one that served northern Chinese food. The syndrome, which usually begins 15 to 20 minutes after I have eaten the first dish, lasts for about two hours, without hangover effect. The most prominent symptoms are numbness at the back of the neck, gradually radiating to both arms and the back, general weakness and palpitations…” So penned Dr. Robert Ho Man Kwok in a letter to the editor of the New England Journal of Medicine in the year 1968. Worried that one of the ingredients commonly used in Chinese cuisine was causing his mysterious malady, Kwok was quick to question whether he was affected by high sodium content, the ingredients in Chinese cooking wine or perhaps… monosodium glutamate, also known as MSG. Used frequently in Chinese cooking, Kwok suspected that this flavor-enhancer may have been chemically responsible for his strange symptoms. Creatively captioning Kwok’s letter as the “Chinese Restaurant Syndrome,” the New England Journal of Medicine was flooded with a deluge of mail from people who claimed to experience similar symptoms after consuming Chinese foods. Like wildfire, the fear of MSG — and by association, Chinese restaurants — spread through America and Canada. Chinese restaurants began to

88 / THE MONSEY VIEW / January 25, 2017 / 845.600.8484

fall in popularity, prompting many proprietors to reevaluate their food preparation and announce their establishments “MSG free.” Thus began the historic, ongoing battle over MSG.

What Is MSG? Despite being touted as a traditional ingredient of Chinese cuisine, monosodium glutamate was actually discovered by a Japanese chemist named Kikunae Ikeda in 1908. Realizing that his wife’s cooking often carried a savory quality that was unable to be identified by the commonly recognized four types of taste — salty, sweet, bitter and sour — Ikeda was able to pinpoint a fifth sense of taste which he named “umami.” Japanese for “pleasant, savory taste,” umami was able to be traced to glutamate naturally occurring in foods such as tomatoes, cheese, mushrooms, pears and

peas. Imagining the opportunity to enhance the taste of foods through umami, Ikeda set out to isolate the glutamate component of food. Using seaweed, a staple of Japanese diet, Ikeda was able to identify and extract a form of glutamate he proceeded to name monosodium glutamate. Within a year, monosodium glutamate was being commercially produced under the brand name Ajinomoto, meaning “the essence of taste.” The first four years of marketing turned little-to-no profit as restauranteers and commercial food manufacturers looked at askance at the new product. They considered their food to be good enough without use of a new-fangled and questionable additive. The manufacturers of MSG, however, disagreed. Changing their marketing tactics, MSG was presented to Japanese housewives in thin glass bottles, designed to look aesthetic and as if the item belonged in upper class homes. Respected public individuals were quoted throughout the media, claiming MSG to be a vital factor in preparing the perfect meal, and recipes containing MSG began appearing in Japanese publications. Costing the equivalent of roughly ten bags of flour, MSG was purported a seasoning of distinction, and was awarded as a graduation gift to women who had finished schooling in the years between 1922–1937. By 1931, monosodium glutamate had found its place on Japanese tables, similar to the salt and pepper shakers found in American homes. By 1914, Ajinomoto had spread beyond Japanese borders where it was met with enthusiasm by the people of Taiwan. Mainland China, however, was a harder sell, though that, too, picked up eventually. In the time span encasing the mid-1930s–1941, America became the lead purchaser of Ajinomoto. Though housewives couldn’t be convinced to purchase MSG shakers for table-top use, the commercial industry quickly fell in love with the additive. Everything from frozen foods to baby food jars

became laden with synthetic umami. And of course, Chinese-American restaurants cashed in on the MSG craze as well.

The Red Flag Is Raised A revolution was born in 1962 when an American author published a book that pointed an accusing finger at the American government’s allowance of chemical manufacturers to freely use harsh pesticides in agriculture. Pointing to native bird die-out that correlated to DDT (a pesticide) use, the author condemned unregulated chemical use as detrimental to both the environment and human health. All of a sudden, previously trusting Americans woke up and begin to question the use of chemicals in various industries, with emphasis on food production.

gested that MSG in large doses could prove dangerous for human consumption. In a 1969 study, Dr. John Olney subjected mice to larger-than-average doses of MSG and subsequently reported that these animals suffered brain lesions, neuroendocrine disorders and became grotesquely obese. This data prompted him to speak out against legalized use of monosodium glutamate in food production. Though baby food manufacturers voluntarily ceased to use the flavor-enhancer, the FDA declined to regulate use of MSG in any form.

head trauma or stroke. When too much glutamate leaves its cellular habitat, it acts an excitatory agent, stimulating surrounding cells to open their pores excessively, allowing undesired substances like sodium or calcium and water to enter the cells, which causes swelling and shuts off oxygen flow. These cells then die and spill yet more glutamate into the wrong areas of the body. In short, glutamate is a powerful force, created to exist within balance and limitations — just like with everything else in life.

Glutamate in the Human Body

So, Is MSG Safe for Consumption?

Glutamate is naturally found in the human body, largely concentrated in the brain. It is a powerful neurotransmitter that is respon-

The great MSG debate continues to rage to this very day, with supporters of MSG claiming that the average person will never consume enough MSG to adversely affect health and brain functioning. On the other spectrum, skeptics point to studies like Dr. Olney’s, as well as to statements from MSG manufacturers who have admitted that MSG may cause various side effects, chiefly in asthmatics who seem to be frequently aggravated by the chemical. There is currently no definitive answer of how much MSG is safe for human consumption and how often it can safely be eaten. For children, it is highly suspected that the maximum level of monosodium glutamate intake is vastly less than adults’ though a baseline “safe” level has never yet been determined. Ironically, these children are the prime targets of flavor-enhanced snack foods containing MSG. We may never know how much is too much, so please, use your common sense to navigate the world of the fifth sense of taste: umami.

Within a year, monosodium glutamate was being commercially produced under the brand name Ajinomoto, meaning “the essence of taste.” By the time Kwok’s letter reached the American readership, the red flag had already been raised. The citizens of the U.S. demanded answers. In response to public outcry, numerous studies were conducted on MSG. By that point, the manufacturing process had largely converted from extracting glutamate from plant life, to a chemical process involving genetically modified and fermented bacteria — creating even more questions that needed to be solved. Many of these studies were inconclusive in regards to effect on human health, while others sug-

sible for sending important chemical messages throughout the body. Learning and memory, as well as many other bodily functions, are heavily affected by the chemical messages relayed by glutamate. In order for it to positively affect the body, the intensity of its power must be held in check. It is both essential and highly toxic. Much like water contained within the structure of dam, glutamate is held in check within cells, only releasing small amounts of itself to accomplish various tasks as needed. Problems arise when excessive amounts of glutamate are released, such as often occurs in the case of

Going the extra mile!



umans are able to make most of the fats we need. However, there are two essential fatty acids we must get in our diet: linoleic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid, and alphalinolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid. Our body needs these essential fatty acids to make and maintain the membranes that surround all of our cells, regulate our immune and inflammatory responses, promote wound healing and healthy skin and hair, regulate metabolism, and support the structure and function of our brain, nervous system, eyes, and bones. Although an excessive amount of omega-6 fatty acids are bad for. You must have some in your diet. Most people get far too much omega-6 in their diets because so many processed foods are made with vegetable oils derived from corn, safflower, sunflower, and soybeans. Omega-6 fats play an important role in stimulating inflammation, which is extremely important when you are injured or ill. However, too much omega-6 can cause excessive amounts of inflammation, which has been associated with heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis, and worse L”U.



Omega-3 fatty acids have many roles in the body, but one important job is to dial back inflammation. Unlike Omega 6, our diet is woefully lacking in omega-3s. There are three omega-3 fatty acids you should be familiar with: alpha-linoleic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). ALA is found primarily in nuts (walnuts are the richest source), canola oil, flax, chia, and hemp seeds, as well as in Brussels sprouts and green leafy vegetables, such as kale. ALA is the only true essential omega-3 fatty acid—the one you have to get from your diet. EPA and DHA can technically be synthesized in the body from ALA, which is why they are not considered “essential.” However, humans can’t make EPA and DHA very efficiently from ALA. EPA and DHA are equaly important. They are critical to the health of our cardiovascular system, brain, and eyes. They decrease inflammation, reduce the risk for certain Machlos (L’U), are critical during fetal development, and may even help protect us from depression. That’s why experts recommend eating fish two or three times per week. Fish are rich in EPA and DHA, premade and ready for our body to use—no conversion necessary. You can also find EPA and/or DHA in grass-fed beef, and certain seaweeds, and of course through supplementing. Wherever you get your omega-3s, one thing is forsure: You need them! And here’s why. Omega-3 fatty acids, along with omega-6 fatty acids, are key structural components in our cell membranes, where they act to stabilize and protect them from damage. This is particularly important for the cells in the brain, eyes, and nervous system. During the last trimester, neurological development is very rapid and omega-3s, particularly DHA, are concentrated in the baby’s brain and eyes. Studies show that mothers who consumed fish or fish oil during pregnancy score higher on tests that assess intelligence, attention, and visual acuity. DHA may also reduce the risk of premature birth. There is also some evidence that higher maternal intake of DHA may offer some protection against allergies

and asthma in the baby. Children continue to need a steady supply of DHA for at least the first two years of life to ensure the proper development and function of their central nervous system. DHA is added to infant formula, but the level in breast milk depends exclusively on the mother’s diet. Omega-3s for inflammation. Medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen (motrin), or prednisone have long been used to suppress inflammation. It was thought that suppressing inflammation was a useful strategy while waiting for the inflammation to fizzle out on its own. We didn’t know that there might be an “off” switch. Well, it turns out that EPA and DHA are responsible for resolving inflammation, for turning it off and cleaning up any of the cellular debris that remains. Resolvins and protectins are molecules generated from omega-3s that orchestrate the timely resolution of inflammation in our body. The E-series resolvins are derived from EPA and the D-series resolvins are from DHA. These resolvins also seem to be critically important for maintaining our mucosal barriers (such as the mucosal lining of the respiratory tract), and when they are low, we can experience more severe allergies and asthma. Protectins are derived only from DHA and protect our nerve tissue, brain, and eyes; they also interact with our immune cells. This new understanding of omega-3s may help explain why fish oil has shown benefit in patients with rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, and other inflammatory-driven diseases. Much of the chronic disease we are experiencing is fueled by persistent low-grade inflammation, driven by many factors of modern living such as obesity, insulin resistance, a high-fructose diet, lack of physical activity, chronic stress, and poor sleep, to name a few. The term inflammaging is being used to describe the many diseases of the elderly such as heart disease, diabetes, and cognitive decline that are now being seen in younger and younger people. Increasing intake of omega-3 fatty acids, as part of a holisticstrategy, may help reverse or slow this premature aging process. We spoke about how important DHA is during early life. It remains so across our life span, especially as we move into our elder years. Low blood levels of DHA are associated with cognitive decline in healthy elders. A 2010 double-blinded, placebocontrolled study published in the journal Alzheimer’s Dementia randomized 485 people with age-related cognitive decline to receive 900 mg of DHA or identical placebo for 24 weeks. The researchers found that DHA improved learning and memory scores, particularly immediate and delayed verbal recall. Similar effects were seen in a small 12- month study published in Psychopharmacology in 2013 that found fish oil with high concentrations of DHA significantly improved immediate and delayed verbal recall (both are measures of memory). There were no adverse effects in either study. Studies suggest omega-3 is probably most useful as a preventive agent or for those with very early cognitive decline, as the studies using EPA and/or DHA in those with Alzheimer’s dementia have unfortunately not shown any significant benefit. Protectins derived from DHA offer considerable protection to the brain and central nervous system. Emerging science is demonstrating how DHA can help the brain heal after injury or, perhaps even more critical, protect the brain if it should become injured. There is evidence that omega-3s may play an important role in mood. A fascinating 2014 report in the journal Military Medicine found moderate to strong evidence that higher levels of EPA and DHA are associated with a lower risk of clinical depression. They also noted that meta-analyses of randomized, placebo-controlled trials provide moderate to strong evidence that when the supplement contained more than 50 percent EPA, there was a significant improvement in symptoms of depression. They even noted that there is modest evidence of clinical benefit for ADHD.


In conclusion, anyone who doesn’t regularly consume fatty fish twice a week should supplement with fish oil. Also, it is the steady intake of these fatty acids that offers the best protection against chronic disease. The benefits you’ll gain if you start taking fish oil at age 70, while still good, would not be near as great as if you started upping your intake of omega-3s in your 30s. For most people, taking 400 to 800 mg of EPA and 200 to 500 mg of DHA per day, or three to four times per week, is probably sufficient. For some conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, or to lower elevated triglycerides, daily doses of 2000 to 3000 mg of EPA and 1000 to 2000 mg of DHA are required.

For those who are allergic to fish, there are several strategies you can use to up your omega-3 intake. You can add ground flaxseeds to your diet, as they are rich in ALA, dietary lignans, and fiber. In fact, flax is one of the richest sources of dietary lignans, which offer significant protection against cancer. Brown or golden seeds have the same nutritional benefits and contain roughly 800 mg of ALA per tablespoon of ground seeds. Aim for 2 tablespoons per day. Chia seeds also contain ALA but less than flax. They also don’t have those powerhouse lignans. However, they don’t need to be ground, are a great source of soluble fiber, and are easy to throw into smoothies and tea. You can also get omega-3s by adding walnuts and other nuts to salads. Beans, soy, cauliflower, broccoli, and other green leafy vegetables contain small amounts of ALA. Or you might want to consider taking a an omega 3 supplement derived from algae. INTERACTIONS: Stay away from high doses of omega 3 while taking blood thinning medication.

WHAT IS A CLOVE? A dry, unopened nail-shaped flower bud of a clove tree. WHERE IN THE WORLD?

Cloves are native to the Molucca Islands of Indonesia.

Sri Lanka and North India: cloves are an integral part of their spice blends. They are used in spice blends, biryanis (rice dishes) and pickles.

In the U.S., cloves are used in meats, salad dressings and sweet desserts. Clove is a key flavor contributor to ketchup and Worcestershire sauce seasoning blends.

Mexico: Cloves accompany cumin and cinnamon in cuisine. China and Germany: used in seasonings to flavor meats and cookies.



Mosquito repellant


Clove cigarettes a.k.a kretek widely smoked in Europe and Asia.

Dentistry: Clove oil has antiseptic and anesthetic properties. It has been used in treating toothaches for centuries.

DID YOU KNOW? Why do all dentists’ offices smell the same? That’s thanks to Eugenol, a topical used as an anesthetic. Its main ingredient is cloves — 80% of it.

Besamim Dos & Don’ts


Three main exporters of cloves today are Indonesia, Tanzania and Madagascar.

Madagascar cloves rate #1.

Tanzania produces 80% of cloves today.

Cost: About $10 a lb. in international market.

Its tree grows up to 30 feet.

Cloves are the 4th most popular spice (basil, Marjoram and cinnamon precede it), and expensive too!

FAST FACTS The Dutch, who controlled the Maluku islands for many years, protected access to their trees and destroyed any that sprang up anywhere outside of their control.

In the Moluccas, parents planted a clove tree when a child was born.

Clove clusters are pale first. They become green, and then bright red, when they are harvested. They become brown, hard and nail-like in shape when dried.

The clove tree produces flower buds in clusters. The name “cloves” comes from the French “clou,” meaning nail.

Its flavor is pungent and aromatic.

“The clove tree will not grow except within sight of the mountains and within smell of the sea.”

1. 2. 3.

Any naturally occurring aromatic substance may be used.


It is proper to set aside a special container of besamim and to keep it sealed so it retains the smell.

5. 6.

Some have the minhag to use hadasim from the lulav for besamim.


However, the Ashkenazic minhag is to recite “borei minei besamim” at havdalah even if you smell a piece of wood. During the week different brachos would be made depending on if it is wood, flowers, leaves or shrubs.

Do not use man-made substances as besamim. Spices that don’t produce good smells but only remove bad ones should not be used.

Chazal instituted different brachos for different fragrant leaves, grass and wood. For havdalah it is best to take standard spices to avoid a shailah.


Sefardim do not pasken this way. They make the bracha that would normally be said on the fragrant flower, leaf or wood.


Cloves are a splendid besamim choice. They are readily available, retain their smell for a long time and don’t dry out.


The sense of smell is not tangible and connects the physical and spiritual. A good smell uplifts not only the body, but the soul. Smelling besamim uplifts us in a time of mourning the loss of our neshama yeseirah.


According to others, our neshama can smell the fires of Gehinnom turning back on as Shabbos departs and that makes our souls sad. The besamim is to counter that.

Why is this young man alone in the desert? Let’s return to Yemen and to the events that led to this.


The Sharabi children are going to learn with the Mori.

Shalom, one of the Sharabi widow’s sons, was very smart and a big masmid.


As he grew up, he became an expert in all of the Torah.

Yidel and Kalman Klein


By Ann Zeilingold

Real Estate Lemon, sweet spice — and scents that are nice I hit the streets and I asked four realtors the following question: What scents are pleasing and will boost salability when showing a home?

Sharon Kushner from Keller Williams in New City

Sarah Klein of Rodeo Realty, Monsey, NY: It is very important to make sure that there is nothing other than a good scent greeting buyers and agents when they enter the home, as that greatly impacts the showing, and therefore the selling. Bake something fresh the day of a showing, or even easier and very effective is to use the Williams Sonoma homemade air freshener recipe which gives them their classy store scent: The idea is to bring to a boil 2–3 cups of water along with fresh fruit, fresh herbs and extracts. Then simmer it on low and your home will start to smell amazing. You can also do these in a slow cooker. This popular DIY Williams-Sonoma scent smells just like that glorious store!

Moses Einhorn, Keller Williams, New City: There are three kinds of smells. There are “bad” smells, like mold, gas, heavy smoke and lack of cleanliness that will completely turn off a prospective buyer, and they will either not buy the home or offer much less. Other odors, which may be unpleasant, but are not “bad,” will affect the buyer’s decision less, because they are normal and fixable, like sharp, distinct spices, fish, some smoke etc. Then there are the smells which are “pleasant,” like fresh, clean scents and sweet spices, which will make a home more inviting and welcoming to a buyer, and they may even get the impression that this home is better taken care of. A home like this may sell faster and for more money.

Tirtza Beer of Realty Teams, Pomona, NY says, “If you can smell it, you can’t sell it!” Tirtza prefers NO scents at all. She strongly cautions against using air fresheners to cover up unwanted smells as this can make it worse. It’s best to use an air freshener like Zero Odor to get rid of smells.

The safest bet is to make sure the house has no smell at all, or just a plain, mild clean smell.

relates, “When a home has a nice, clean, fresh smell or no smell at all, the buyers can feel comfortable viewing the home. The idea is to do what we can to help the buyers imagine this home to be theirs. If a buyer can imagine themselves living happily and comfortably in the home, there is a good chance they will make a good offer.”

To sum it up, keep the following in mind before a showing: • If the home has a distinct smell that is not the buyers’ taste, they may feel like they can’t stay in the house! If the buyers want to leave the house, since they are not comfortable with the smell, it

will be difficult to get them to make a market value offer on the house — or any offer at all. Be careful with perfumes, scented candles, spray fragrances, scented plug-ins, etc. These may hint to the buyer that you are covering up something. Some people do not go for these smells and may have difficulty breathing in these unnatural fragrances. Some people feel it will enhance the buyer’s experience if the home smells of homemade cookies or apple pie. This can be true. However, make sure you limit the food smell to neutral food scents from baked pastries only, and not from meats, sauces, spicy foods, etc. If the home has a food smell that does not appeal to the buyer, it may disgust them and make them want to leave the house. Remember that what one person likes in a smell another may not. Many buyers may have a hard time imagining the home without the strange or unfamiliar smell, therefore the smell can jeopardize the sale. The safest bet is to make sure the house has no smell at all, or just a plain, mild clean smell.

y son, my 17 year old Iluy, was scheduled to leave for yeshiva in a few short days. Bein Hazmanim with him had been so wonderful, and I hated sending him back away again so soon, but Yeshiva was his rightful place to be. I went into his room to check if he needed any help with the packing and found him sweaty and pale, clutching his head. Concerned, I asked, “Chesky, are you all right?” Through clenched teeth, he responded, “It’s just a splitting headache.” Another headache. He’d been having them off and on the entire time he had been home. “I think we should see a doctor before you go back to Yeshiva, just to be on the safe side,” I gently prodded. In agony, Chesky agreed. Two days later, we had our answer. And wished we didn’t. Chesky had a tumor, right next to his brain, and doctors advised us to do emergency surgery immediately. They explained that it was an 11 hour surgery, with a 50/50 chance of the surgery being successful. It was a very risky operation because of the tumor’s proximity to the brain, but there really wasn’t much choice in the matter. Without the surgery, Chesky wouldn’t make it. In shock, we signed the papers, scheduled the surgery, and sat back to wait… and wait. My husband is a doer, and he spent most of the first few hours, making phone calls and asking people to daven for our Chesky. Listening to him, I remembered an ad I had once seen in a popular Jewish magazine about Tehillim Kollel, an organization that recites the Tehillim each and every day of the year, without fail. I quickly googled and found a link to the number. I dialed, and with a choked voice, gave our Chesky’s name to the operator, signing him up for Tefillos. We waited and waited some more, praying, praying and praying. After the 11th hour, Chesky’s doctor, one of the most skilled and prominent surgeons in England, came out to update us on the surgery. “It was a complete success,” he said, looking a bit bewildered. “I have to tell you that going into the surgery, I knew that there were zero chances of removing the entire tumor. Our best plan of action was to remove as much as possible and schedule additional treatment to eradicate the rest. But somehow, and I can’t explain it, we were able to remove the entire tumor all at once! I have done this surgery countless of times, and never have I been able to remove it all without any complications. You truly must have had someone special watching out for you.” And we did. Thank you Tehillim Kollel, for your powerful support!
