At Kids First, we treat stuttering and articulation / phonological disorders in both children and adolescents. We incorporate the Lidcombe program, a behavioral and family-based approach, to treat preschoolers and school-aged children who stutter. To help adolescents/adults who stutter, we administer dynamic stuttering therapy, a program working to reteach the brain to use the same natural automatic speech production process as fluent speakers do.

Yes, 40 fresh and delicious tomatoes. And that’s just for one jar! The lucky fruits get to ripen on vines by basking in the northern Italian sunshine, so they taste sweet and have a full, succulent flavor. That jar may be tough to fill, but you’ll find it all too easy to empty.

LIVE AND LEARN Thank you for the comprehensive and very enlightening article by Margie Pensak on the halachos pertaining to aluminum. It was the first time that I learned that utensils used for raw foods do not require tevilah. I recently purchased cookie cutters, toiveled them, and then was disappointed when they started to rust; I was unaware that it was entirely unnecessary. I also found the halachos of when a bracha is required and when it is not very informative. Enlightened

I really appreciated your beautiful Seder tish pictorial. Everything was exquisite and the divrei Torah gave me something to share with my family during the Seder. As a busy mother, those tidbits were really appreciated. The “Secrets” series of seforim by Rabbi Meisels are really super special. I’ve seen the seforim on other topics and have highly enjoyed them. Thank you again for an inspirational yom tov piece. Appreciative Mother

allowed to go to a place on Pesach where there is chometz: ‫לא יראה ולא‬ ‫ימצא‬. The rest of the attractions are excellent, but I feel it’s important to point out that the pretzel factory is not a permissible destination for Chol Hamoed Pesach. A Reader

PRACTICAL SUGGESTION I truly enjoyed to look through your compilation of Chol Hamoed ideas. The images are so beautiful, and they truly gave me a feel of each place. (Although I must say that Willow Tree Park looks a lot lovelier in the image than it is in real life!) I have just one suggestion that will enhance your excellent guide: An index would be very helpful as reference, so the booklet doesn’t have to be flipped through to find the info of a specific location. Thank you. B.L.

TRASH IT! I visited Van Saun park with my family on Chol Hamoed. I was proud to be part of this vibrant, pulsing experience, full of Yiddishe kinderlach dressed in their finest and spending a beautiful day out with family. On more than one occasion, it pained me to watch young children throwing their wrappers on the ground, and their mothers turning a blind eye. Granted, some of the kids were too young to know any better, but how could a mother allow the trash to stay on the ground in a public area, leaving it for the park volunteers to pick up? Mothers, please make a kiddush Hashem, especially in public areas that are swarming with Yidden. Teach your children to never leave trash on the ground (anywhere). And even if it’s not your child who littered, please bend down, pick up those heimishe wrappers, and show the world what we’re really all about. R.E.

As told to: Basya Lev

EVERY YEAR MY FAMILY AND I look forward to a Shabbaton where we spend the Shabbos with close friends. The fact that we ended up going this year despite all the obstacles that cropped up along the way is a hashgacha pratis story in itself, but for now let me share with you the punchline of how Hashem watches over me... While packing up all the kids for this amazing Shabbos, I couldn't locate one little maroon sock that goes to my little one’s robe. I had been looking for that sock for almost three weeks but I couldn't find it. Therefore, I packed a pair of black socks instead. Finally, we were ready to leave. As we started pulling out of the driveway, I turned my head toward my baby and noticed the lonesome maroon sock next to the car seat ! I couldn't believe it! I had driven in the car plenty of times, put the baby in the car seat, and only now the sock appeared. In a split-second decision, I asked my husband to stop the car so I could run back into the house for the other little maroon sock. I got to the door to find that not only was the door not locked but it was wide open! It took me several moments to recover from the shock! I know Hashem watches over all of us. I thanked Hashem for so clearly showing me just how much He protects me and my home!

THE REVOLUTION BEGINS

While the rest of the world was busy with their heads buried deep inside kitchen cabinets, yellow gloves upon their hands, I was occupied with more than the typical two-step dance of yom tov prep and ongoing family life. My Pre-Pesach mind whirled beyond chometz, luggage and shiny new shoes — as if that weren’t enough! The Supreme Symposium was in the making! There was a hall to book, an ad to design, a hotline to set up, a sound system to find and an endless stream of calls. Truth be told, those calls were actually the precursor to the Supreme Symposium, the catalyst for the big event. And let me tell you, if telephone rings were rain, I’d be soaked. But what choice did I have? So many people are hurting! Only a short while ago my Skin Healing Gemach was founded, based upon information that’s been hidden from the world for the last 30 years. Information that I was zoche to find. Information that is healing thousands. And now, with Supreme Health at my side, this information will be spread even further, b’ezras Hashem. And it’s not just me that has something worthwhile to say; there’s a great lineup of speakers out to change the way we think about our bodies and their care. Dear Monsey, we’re starting a revolution to take back our health. Are you ready to heal?

32 / THE MONSEY VIEW / April 20, 2017 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

“There’s so much information out there that can help people feel better and live longer,” Mr. Chaim Bergman, owner of Supreme Health tells me, the care evident in his voice. “It’s a must to share what we know with the world.” It’s a quiet, but passionate energy that radiates from Bergman, marking him as a man clearly dedicated to helping others live healthfully. I had contacted him shortly before Pesach, and explained to him how my Skin Healing Gemach is helping so many people with damaged skin. I also told him about Dr. Marvin Rapaport, the dermatologist who discovered the reason why so many people are suffering, and discovered, as well, how to help them heal. “The doctor is flying out from LA right after Pesach,” I said. “And I’m seeking sponsorship for an event. There is so much awareness that needs to be raised — awareness that can prevent an untold amount of suffering.” Honestly, I was expecting a flatout “no.” It wouldn’t be the first time I’d been turned down. After all, the information Dr. Rapaport has to share with the world is a bit of a challenge to his colleagues and the pharmaceutical industry, making him somewhat of a black sheep in the medical world. (That always happens with whistleblowers!) And besides, what would Supreme gain from the event? A little publicity and a hefty bill? “No” would have fit. “No” would have made sense. But that’s not what happened at all. “Let’s run with it,” was the answer I got. And run with it we did. Ideas began piling up, one on top of another — ways for Monsey to get the max out of this free event. Dynamic speakers volunteered for the symposium, and like a Divinelyguided jigsaw puzzle, all of the plans just fell into place. It’s as clear as day to each scheduled speaker that the time of revolution has come, the time to share our

messages with the world. And share them we will, thanks to Supreme!

MEET THE SPEAKERS

In this day and age, it’s easy to become befuddled as we try to make sense of what is beneficial to our bodies, and what is to be avoided. Thankfully, visitors to Supreme Health receive great guidance as they navigate their way to better living. Because at Supreme, it’s not just about the product and the sale — it’s about the people that walk through the door, and helping them to feel their best. Over at Supreme, connections are constantly being made between health specialists and the health-seeking masses. Those connections come very much in handy when putting together an event like the debut Supreme Symposium. Years worth of building respectful working relationships mean that the speakers invited to the event immediately clamored aboard with enthusiasm. Here’s a peek at this year’s Supreme speakers:

RORIE WEISBERG

Dubbed by her sister a “health food mad scientist,” Rorie’s all about finding ways to make healthy food fabulous. Founder of Full ‘N Free, and the creator of Rorie’s Gluten-Free Oat Dough Mix, Rorie’s making a major impact in the lives of many. “It all began when life had me re-evaluate my commitment to healthy cooking,” Rorie tells me. “I had experienced firsthand how much ingredients matter, and the transformative effects of wholesome eating made me determined to feed my family better quality food. My family’s favorites needed a makeover, and I was up for the challenge.” It took years of testing, tasting

34 / THE MONSEY VIEW / April 20, 2017 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

and tweaking, she says, but with time, her recipe collection grew — together with her passion. Rorie took the leap and enrolled in the top integrative nutrition and health coaching school with the goal of helping women and teens listen to and understand their bodies’ individual needs. “Today, that’s exactly what I do,” Rorie says, enunciating that Full ‘N Free is not about restrictive dieting. “One of my core beliefs is that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to eating. It is up to each of us to look out for symptoms that clue us in to what our bodies like or don’t.” At the Supreme Symposium, Rorie will share tips and tricks, as well as recipes, for helping women free themselves of the foods that weigh them down. She’ll provide you with the tools to help you get started on making healthy lifestyle choices.

ELIEZER GRUBER

“So many illnesses can be avoided,” Mr. Gruber, founder of Nutri-Supreme Research tells me when we discuss the upcoming event. “There is a vast amount of research detailing how so many illnesses have their roots in bodily inflammation.” A certified nutritionist researcher, Gruber knows well how what we eats impacts our bodies. In fact, he’s prepared a groundbreaking presentation about the effects of modern eating on various body parts, like the heart and the skin. Doctors everywhere are sitting up and taking notice. “This is information that can drastically reduce the amount of people being diagnosed with terrible conditions. We can prevent so many illnesses, with Hashem’s help.” Preventing those illnesses is what makes Mr. Gruber tick. In fact, for over 25 years he’s made it his

mission to help people better their health. By staying on top of the newest developments in health science research, Nutri-Supreme is able to continually update their vitamin formulations, ensuring that consumers benefit from both quality ingredients and up-to-date health knowledge. His goal is to bridge the gap between nutrition and medicine. At the Supreme Symposium Mr. Gruber will share eye-opening discoveries about nutrition’s role in preventing chronic disease and inflammation. You’ll never look at food the same way again.

MARVIN RAPAPORT, MD

Hailing from Beverly Hills, California, Dr. Marvin Rapaport will be heading to Monsey to share with us exactly how to save our skins. A board-certified dermatologist, clinical professor at UCLA, and a Yid with a gigantic heart, Dr. Rapaport has seen thousands of patients diagnosed with severe skin disorders like eczema, psoriasis and seborrheic dermatitis. But here’s the big secret: Many of these patients actually do not have those disorders! Painfully red skin can often be totally prevented. Welcome to the world of medical cover-ups. Over 30 years ago, Dr. Rapaport conducted a study on 3,000 red and rashy people, which lead to an absolutely shocking discovery which he’ll share with us at the symposium. His discovery — had it been allowed to permeate the broader population — could have prevented untold suffering. Now that the information is leaking out, thousands of hurting people are finally beginning to heal. Come hear the truth about cortisone and help prevent the next generation from the suffering of severe skin damage. You never know,


it might be your kid with eczema. Here’s your chance to save his skin!

RUCHY REESE

And then, there’s me. Yeah, me. I’ll be up there, emceeing the event and sharing with you my personal story about working my way through the world of wrongful diagnoses and bad medicine. You’ll join me for the rollercoaster of positive dreams and dashed hopes, and ultimately, healing. You’ll hear how I got started with this Skin Healing Gemach and how I desperately hope that the gemach will one day fold. Because trust me, I hate the calls that come in. Not because they take up my time, but simply because they exist — a verbal testament to lives full of pain. But skin health is an orphaned topic, and through virtue of my incredible story, I just can’t say no when it comes to helping people find the solution to their pain. By hearing my tale, you’ll learn that things are not always as they seem, and that sometimes the solution to any situation is incredibly simple. Join us the first Sunday after Pesach, April 23rd, at 229 Maple Avenue in the old Bais Shifra Miriam building to be part of the first-ever Supreme Symposium. This event is fully sponsored by the generosity of Supreme Health and is free for the community! And as they say: If it’s free, take two! In this case, we’ll give you four: Rorie, Ruchy, Rapaport and Gruber. We can’t wait to see you!

THE SUPREME SYMPOSIUM April 23rd at 229 Maple Avenue Program begins at 12:30 p.m. Healthy refreshments will be served

Mandatory Countywide Rental Registry Intended to Create Better, Safer Housing, Says Day (VIN News) THE FOURTH AND FINAL STEP in County Executive Ed Day’s plan to crack down on illegal housing throughout Rockland County will require landlords of buildings with three or more tenants to register their property in a county database. Day announced the registry at a press conference held in front of a legal multi-family dwelling in Stony Point and said that while for now landlords are encouraged to enroll in the registry, participation will become mandatory, with fines that can range as high as $2,000 per day for those who fail to comply. There is a one-time registration fee of $25 per unit, but Day was adamant that the registry is not

intended to punish landlords and categorized the filing fee as nominal. “I think most landlords would rather pay a one-time fee of $25 instead of $2,000 per day,” said Day. Properties would need to file a copy of an up-to-date certificate of occupancy as part of the registration process, a move intended to ensure that rental properties in the county are safe, both for tenants as well as firefighters, who have long complained that illegal modifications to properties have placed their lives in jeopardy in emergency situations.

Potholes Be Gone: Better, Smoother Roads Coming Your Way (Rockland Daily Voice) AFTER A WINTER OF CONSTANT temperature fluctuations, resulting in a bumper crop of potholes, the New York State Department of Transportation has allocated $1.4 million to improve Rockland County roadways. Senator David Carlucci said that the funding will be coming from three different state entities and will provide tremendous benefits to local residents.

Distributions include: the Town of Ramapo, $165,106.24, the Village of Airmont, $85,921.49, the Village of Chestnut Ridge $96,103.30, the Village of Kaser, $4,552.85, the Village of New Hempstead $55,150, the Village of New Square, $13,283.15, the Village of Pomona, $48,841.03, the Village of Spring Valley, $156,767.16, the Village of Suffern, $112,899 and the Village of Wesley Hills, $58,574.16.

Rockland Property Taxes Second Highest in U.S. (The Journal News) IT IS A DUBIOUS HONOR that no one wants to receive: being ranked at the top of the list in nationwide property taxes. According to a report from ATTOM Data Solutions Rockland County’s property taxes are number two on the list, second only to Westchester. The report, released at the beginning of April, stated that Westchester residents paid an average of $16,500 in annual taxes with Rocklanders paying an only slightly more modest $12,300 per year in property taxes. Experts say that the high tax rate is due in no small part to the whopping costs of both homes and schooling in the Hudson Valley area. Governor Cuomo, a Westchester resident, attempted to put the brakes on rising property taxes in 2011 by initiating a tax cap that limited increases to less than 2 percent each

38 / THE MONSEY VIEW / April 20, 2017 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

year. Over time, New York State has fallen in the rankings for effective tax rate, coming in first in 2014, but currently placing just seventh in the United States. Rockland’s proximity to Manhattan, making it a relatively simple commute for residents to work in the city, is just one reason why so many people have made the county their home, but with that desirability comes a jump in home prices, explained Al Samuel, president of the Rockland Business Association. The lowest property taxes in the country were typically found in the south, where property taxes are generally not used to finance schools. Alabama ranked dead last in the report, with an average property tax statewide of just $776.

The process of building, he learned, is to keep moving forward. Staggering losses piled up. Critical opinions were offered to him like first aid, unsolicited, as if they were a necessity. Not only from where it hurt most, his own household, but also from others, those onlookers who had a lot to say with their mouths while their arms remained notably folded as they spoke.

of their truck, wondering where he would get a crew like theirs, hoping they hadn’t stolen anything from him. They had. The expensive saw they had demanded was now theirs, running away in the back of their truck, even as he scratched his left eyebrow, wondering, wondering, what next. He sighed heavily. Nobody said rebuilding was a war easily won. The houses were now skeletal and donning their colorful and festive coats. Doors were now soldered into place and windows installed. A kitchen, gleaming and wide, enough to put down four dairy pots on the one counter, and a mixing bowl plus five large utensils on the meat side, was installed, too. Floors were laid. “This is real. It’s really real,” he told Henya one day. She was holding Faivel, who was now much heavier, having fleshedout and rounded, his clothing now pinching his little toes. Henya was always feeling one step behind energetic, an exhaustion like an ankle weight, pulling her away from her day-to-day. If words are no indication, actions are a sure way to spot dedication. She had to give it to him. From the day Yosef Yitzchok shared his dream, he had soldiered forward, forever forward. “Tell me more,” she allowed. And he described it to her. Every house has two acres of land surrounding it out front and back. There were forty houses in all, but room to build even more. Which he would do, it was filling up

Chaim Dovid, Aron, Moisha, Yona, Shulem and Berel.” “That’s six,” she said. “And us. And the Rav. We have a very young and chashuve rav. Rav Gedalya Levi.” “Rav Levi?” Henya shifted the baby into her other arm, as her shoulders were cramping into a burn. “An Amerikaner. Not a landsman.” “No. Not a landsman. But a very chashuve rav. He’s coming with his young married son and with a brother-in-law. So, ten.” “A minyan,” she said. “And we, us, are part of the ten.” “Yes.” He looked at her. “You’ll be happy there. You’ll have everything. It’ll be a place to start anew. You’ll heal. The air itself, so pure, will heal.” When she married and moved overseas to a land in which she knew absolutely not one soul, she had done so to rebuild. She promised herself — stepping out of the terrible, horrific dream — that she would rebuild. Here was her son, a testament. Here was her own self, alive, very much alive. Although she loathed that about herself. Still, she was alive. And their family was growing. Yosef Yitzchok was an indefatigable sort, a husband every woman could look up to. “What will you do to make it… doable?” she asked. It almost came out, the words she had thought and nearly said: How will you repay me? For leaving the little bit of joy I have, behind. The names I already know, the people’s faces I recognize. But what a silly question. They were both building. And if his was very different from her way of rebuilding, it was still he who set the tone of the household and she

I’ll be able to learn, to daven, to work, at peace.” The baby picked up his head and turned around, toward her. He rewarded her with his most brilliant smile, all abandon, pure joy.

Whether you’re the superb balabusta who has her mixer packed away by Tu b’Shvat or the supermom who still turns out fresh cakes a week to Pesach, the aroma and taste of these baking cakes will entice and delight your family. The trio I present is basic enough to still whip up on this hectic weekend, yet each of them is more unique than your standard cake.

THE MONSEY VIEW / 49


BROWN AND WHITE CAKE This cake is perfect for those who want to feed a crowd but don’t have a mixer that’s large enough to accommodate an 18-egg cake, because both layers bake together.

BROWN LAYER 9 eggs 2 ¾ cups sugar 1 T. vanilla ¾ cup oil 7 oz. cocoa 2 ½ tsp. baking powder 3 c. flour

LIGHT LAYER

DIRECTIONS: 1. Beat eggs and sugar until light and fluffy. Add oil. 2. Gradually add rest of ingredients. Mix until well combined. 3. Pour into a deep, lined roaster pan. Rinse and dry mixer bowl.

9 eggs, separated 2 ½ cups sugar ¾ cup oil 1 ½ c. orange juice 2 ½ tsp. baking powder 3 cups flour

VARIATIONS FOR LIGHT LAYER: For coffee flavor, use 1½ c. prepared coffee instead of the juice. For pink layer (as in featured image), add 2 tsp. of strawberry flavor, 6 drops of red food coloring and one drop of blue food coloring.

DIRECTIONS: 1. Preheat oven to 325°. 2. Beat egg whites and sugar until snow is formed. Add yolks and continue to beat. 3. Place liquids in one cup and dry ingredients in another cup. 4. Slowly add them into the egg mixture, while it continues to beat on a low speed, alternating the liquid and dry ingredients. 5. Pour white layer over brown layer carefully, distributing as evenly as possible. 6. Bake on 325° for 1 hour and 15 minutes to 1 ½ hours, until toothpick inserted in center is completely dry.

TRI-LEVEL BROWNIE This moist brownie, sandwiched between a chewy oatmeal base and a creamy chocolate glaze is a favorite classic.

OATMEAL BASE

BROWNIE

DIRECTIONS:

1 ½ cups 1-minute oats

6 whole eggs

1. Preheat oven to 350°.

1 c. flour

1 ½ cups sugar

¾ cup brown sugar

⅔ cup oil

2. Beat eggs and sugar until stiff.

¼ tsp. baking powder

1 ½ T. vanilla sugar

⅔ cup oil

5 T. sweet wine

Combine all ingredients and press as thin layer into a 10x16 pan.

4 T. cocoa

3. Gradually add remaining ingredients. 4. Pour over oatmeal layer and bake 50–55 minutes.

1 ¾ c. flour ¾ T. baking powder

GLAZE This is a very delicious basic glaze recipe. If your cake is still warm or at room temperature, it is best to make it a little thinner, by adding a little more water, and then it will spread more easily. 2 cups confectioners sugar ⅓ cup good-quality cocoa 5 T. oil 6 T. water

DIRECTIONS: 1. Mix sugar and cocoa in a bowl. 2. Add oil and mix well. 3. Add water, starting with 4 tablespoons and increasing until desired consistency is reached. 4. Glaze cake.

CINNAMON BROWNIE A cake with a history; forgotten, lost — and found I was introduced to this deliciously flavored and textured cake in the country quite some time ago and was happy to share it with my mother, who always enjoys a new recipe. My mother was so excited to hear about this cake, for she had received this very recipe some thirty years earlier from a neighbor who had moved from Chicago, and had baked this cake many times, until she got bored of it and subsequently forgot about the recipe. Turns out, my mother had shared this recipe with her friend and classmate, who was my country mate's mother.

INGREDIENTS: 10 eggs, separated 3 ½ cups sugar, divided 1 tsp. cinnamon 1 ½ cups oil 1 ½ cups seltzer 4 t. baking powder 3 ½ cups flour 5 T. cocoa

There are many calls that come in on a daily basis to the Skin Healing Gemach. Most of them are from people with burning red skin. Here are just an assortment of calls we’ve had. All of the stories are true and have happened in the last six months. See if you can find a common thread that runs through every story‌

THE CRADLE CAP KID At three months old, little Shloimy Herps* has a burning red face that oozes and flakes. “It started with a case of cradle cap,” Mrs. Herps tells me. “His head was full of oily yellow flakes, so we took him to the pediatrician. She gave us a tube of hydrocortisone and said to use it all over his head and forehead. So we did. The cradle cap is totally gone, but my poor baby is covered in eczema! What happened? Where did my beautiful baby go? And what should we do? The doctor said to use stronger cortisone to get rid of the rash.”

THE KALLAH WITH THE RED ARM

BUBBY HAD HIVES “My mother is depressed because she looks like a burn victim. Her skin is flaming red and skin is just flaking off in unbelievable amounts! She’s 68 years old and has never had eczema before. She did, however, get a weird case of hives seven months ago, and the doctor gave her clobetasol, a super-strong steroid to get rid of the hives. She looked great while she was on it, but now that she’s stopped… You can’t even imagine how much she is suffering! What can we do to help her?”

“She only had a small rash on her fingers, and now up to her elbow is bright red!” the kallah’s mother tells me. “She is getting married in a few weeks!” “What did you do for that original rash?” I ask. “We went to the doctor and asked him what to do. He gave us a cream — I insisted on no steroids — but after eight weeks, my daughter stopped using the cream and her arm is now horrific!” “What was the name of the cream?” I query. “Fluocinonide,” she says. “The doctor tricked you,” I’m forced to break the news. “That’s a very strong steroid.”

ELEVEN-YEAR-OLD LOSING HER HAIR My heart is broken when a mother calls me, saying that her eleven-year-old has flake-filled hair atop a burning red scalp. “They gave her a cortisone shampoo for some dandruff she had. Now she is itching like crazy.” A few weeks later, the mother calls me again. If the flakes and itch were not enough, now the girl’s hair is falling out.

THE IMMUNO MAN

HERBAL CREAM MAGIC

“My husband is covered in terrible psoriasis. He uses cortisone like lotion, every day for years.” “I’m not so sure he has psoriasis,” I say. “Tell me the name of the cream.” I jump out of my skin when I hear the word “halobetasol.” “Your husband is using one of the strongest steroids in the world as lotion.” “I know,” the young wife tells me. “His doctor says he can’t help him anymore, at least not with creams. He wants to put my husband on the immunosuppressant Enbrel, but I’m scared because it can cause yena machlah…” I shake my head, feeling her pain. “I really doubt your husband has psoriasis. What you’re seeing is probably something else. I’m going to get you in for an appointment with Dr. Rapaport. This is a bad situation!”

“So I thought it was magic,” the caller tells me. “I had a rash on my face and used Clear Cream and it healed right away. I used it for a few years, and all of sudden it was pulled from the market for lying about being only herbal. It had steroids. I’ve been managing with a compounded steroid cream from my doctor, but I can never stop, or I become terrible again. What should I do?” MIRACLE DIAPER RASH CREAM Shmoozing with an acquaintance leads to a broken heart when she tells me the following: “So my baby has this horrific diaper rash that won’t go away. The doctor gave me hydrocortisone to use on the rash a couple months ago. It helped at first, but in the last few weeks, it doesn’t work as well anymore. Her skin is swollen, red and oozing. Today the doctor sent in a new prescription, upping the dose of the cortisone.”

NO CHEDER FOR MOISHY “I’ve tried everything. We’ve done Chinese creams, cortisone creams from the doctor, cortisone injections — which he reacted really badly to, and even took a trip to Switzerland where they put some kind of combination cream all over him. My son looks like someone blowtorched him! He’s too sick to even go to cheder!” I cringe when I see the picture of little Moishy; I’m barely able to handle the suffering of such a little boy. But I can help him. I know I can. Day by day I receive phone calls from little Moishy’s mommy, and six months later, we have a different kid on our hands. His skin is stronger now, much less red and flakey, and he’s going happily to cheder!

CHINESE CREAM CLEARING “So I went to a health food store and asked them for something to help my rashes. They gave me a tube of Chinese cream, saying it works wonders. It does! Maybe a bit too good, if you know what I mean... My rashes disappeared like magic, but whenever I try to stop using the cream, I look like a monster! Do you think Chinese cream is to blame?” “Yes,” I say. “Most Chinese creams have very strong steroids. They don’t label it, but you can test it in a laboratory and the steroids will show up.” LADIES AND GENTS, CAN YOU FIND THAT COMMON THREAD? *Names have been changed for privacy

HI EVERYBODY! WE SHOPPED, we dropped, we rolled (rolled out the credit card, that is) and suddenly/not so suddenly, it's over. Pesach is built on memories and matzah, and I, for one, definitely feel myself being built on matzah, but it's always a mitzvah to eat, right? I love mitzvos! So the marrieds came and left the house a... umm, how shall we call it? A delight to clean. Oh, look, Zishe's pacifier is under the bed, the one he's been crying for for the past two days, uh, nonstop. It's almost reachable, just need the broom. Oh there. Almost got it. Oish, the broom pushed it farther away. You gave up, didn't you? Oh well. Next year, 50 pacifiers will grace the home. Just in case. Of course, an extension needs to be added to the home first to make place for it. So what to do with stuff your marrieds left over? No, they were not left for you to enjoy. Not at all. They're meant to take up space in your home until the children come for Shabbos again and forget to take it. Bochurim returning to yeshiva? Not much to worry about there! Nada, really! Just find their socks! Mainly black and white. Don't get confused with the white socks that look black. B"H, we love hosting our extended family. It's priceless. So having souvenirs staying over just comes with the territory of it all. However, here are a few points that might help to not worry about leftover souvenirs, except, of

58 / THE MONSEY VIEW / April 20, 2017 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

course, if it's the brownie truffle: Every night, if you're drooping eyelids allow you to actually see, pick up the strays and put them in a basket. The next day the owner will take it. Hopefully! Of course, depending on what it is, they might just leave it there. As soon as the guests have packed it all, and before they leave, it's up to you to do a search through the home. You can not leave that job to anyone else in the home, ‘cause you are the superhero. Only you can find the mini, tiny piece of Playmobil that six-year-old Shloimy got for afikomen and dropped in between the slats of the steam vent. And you thought the steam vent was meant to look at once a year before Pesach, huh? One year I had a family coming for Pesach. They brought along a new game — the kind that was different and cost a pretty penny. Brilliant, right? So wrong; oh, so wrong. The game, which I'm still thankful for, gave me an amazing workout every day of yom tov. Nope, it wasn’t Rummy or Sorry. It was a game with millions, okay thousands, umm, maybe hundreds of pieces, that yours truly had to clean up three times a day, precisely the time when the men ran out to Shacharis, Mincha and Maariv. Needless to say, for weeks afterwards I still found a piece here and a piece there. Of course, you can put a tracking device on everything your guests bring, and after yom tov the device will track anything they left behind and come out of the hiding place straight

to the owner. I'm sure somewhere it's been invented already. One thing I realized, though, is a pattern that has been repeated time and time again. Nobody, and I mean nobody, ever leaves money behind! Why is that? That's kind of the only thing I would be happy if they don't own up to. So! The ideas are many, but I do what every self-respecting company does. I prepare a box with lost and founds and after 30 days it's either hefker or you can make a garage sale where the original owner buys off their own stuff. Hold off the extension for now. Catch you later, Sara

We organize your home to perfection.

BY: SHEVY HOLLANDER

Overall, public speaking is Americans’ biggest phobia, with 25.3% being afraid to speak in front of a crowd. PODIUM, LECTERN OR ROSTRUM? In the U.S., people are known to have some confusion with the various words used about the spot where the speaker stands.

PODIUM

LECTERN

DAIS

ROSTRUM

The platform on which a speaker and the lectern stand

The stand on which the speaker’s notes are placed

A stage or platform for several speakers or honorary guests

A platform for one or more people

So a speaker stands behind a lectern and on a podium or rostrum.

There are only two types of speakers in the world: the nervous and the liars. Mark Twain

THE SPEECH THAT COULD’VE HAD THE WORST IMPLICATIONS was U.S. President Ronald Reagan’s address in August 1984, at the height of the Cold War, while running for re-election. Taking part in a sound check before the address, Reagan jokingly announced to the technicians: “My fellow Americans, I’m pleased to tell you today that I’ve signed legislation that will outlaw Russia forever. We begin bombing in five minutes.” There’s a very popular misconception that this microphone gaffe was broadcast over the air. That didn’t happen, but it did leak to the general populace and was reported by a major newspaper in Japan. USSR’s reaction wasn’t too pretty.

60 / THE MONSEY VIEW


THE PRESIDENTIAL LECTERN: THE BLUE GOOSE Considering that the most important person in the country stands behind it in the open, the Blue Goose is bulletproof. The presidential seal is not allowed to be attached to a lectern that a president is not speaking from. A Secret Service or military agent attaches the seal each time the president speaks from the presidential lectern and removes it after the speech.

Fidgeting during a speech? The length of focused attention span is maximum 20 minutes in adults. Another reason to include stories in your speech: Facts are 20 times more likely to be remembered if they are part of a story.

WORDS TO AVOID

PUBLIC SPEAKING TIPS FROM THE EXPERTS DON’T TALK RIGHT AWAY

The extra 30 seconds gets your audience’s attention and portrays confidence (even if you’re inwardly shaking). PRACTICE AND PREPARE

Nervousness is normal; preparing will make you feel in control and less nervous. YOUR SPEECH IS ABOUT YOUR AUDIENCE

Not about you. Base your speech on your listeners’ interests and avoid saying “I” or “me.” GRAB THE AUDIENCE’S ATTENTION IN THE FIRST 30 SECONDS

• Filler words like “Uh,” “um,” “like,” and “you know” • “There’s a funny joke” (Even if it’s funny, don't kill it!) • “I’m not a speaker” • “I was asked to speak about” • “So” at the beginning of a word or sentence • “Sorry” • “Bear with me”

This can be done with a thought-provoking question, joke, startling statistic or interesting anecdote DON’T READ FROM A SCRIPT

Nothing bores an audience more than a speaker who’s reading off a paper. Use an outline to remember points. LOOK INTO THEIR EYES

Make eye contact with your listeners, one by one. CLOSE WITH A DYNAMIC END

Leave your audience with something to think about.

DRY THROAT? To minimize throat clearing during a speech:

AVOID

AVOID

LESSEN

DRINK

dairy products before speaking

sugary drinks

intake of salty and spicy foods (especially processed foods and takeout)

plenty beforehand

One of the shortest speeches ever was that of Neil Armstrong when he landed on the moon. “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind,” became one of the most famous lines. Armstrong, though, contended that he had actually practiced good grammar and said “for a man,” but could not be heard. April 20, 2017 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 61 www.themonseyview.com / 845.600.8484

“MA, CAN WE PLAY A GAME?” The voice was a bit eager, a bit hopeful. Miri was already in pajamas, her bare feet padding on the playroom floor, as she carefully balanced the Candyland game she’d received from Bubby as an Afikomen present. “A game?” I glanced at the kitchen sink, piled high with dishes, which I’d planned to tackle that evening — just as soon as I got Miri and her siblings into bed. “But it’s nearly bedtime. Maybe tomorrow.” “Can we just play one game?” she pleaded. “Then I’ll go straight to sleep?” Her innocent request melted my heart, and I turned off the kitchen faucet, resigned. The dishes would wait. Little Miri needed me now. I’d been hoping for an early evening, so I could slip out for a brisk walk later on with my eldest daughter. It’s hard to make quality time for each of them separately, I mused. “Okay, Miri. Candyland it shall be! Who goes first?” “Me!” she squealed. “Unless, Ma, you wanna go first, maybe?” “No, we’ll start from the young-

est,” I assured her, watching her face light up again as she gravely sorted the cards and gave me instructions as to where the gingerbread men should be placed. Judging from her careful maneuvers, this was a high stakes game, one that she was determined to win, at all costs. As if to underscore her deepest desire, Miri turned to me, and confided in a stage whisper. “Ma, guess who’s gonna win?” And with a deepthroated giggle, she pointed at her own pajama top. “Me! I know all the tricks!” “You adorable, foolish girl,” I wanted to explain. “Candyland isn’t a game of logic, where any ‘tricks of the trade’ can help you. It’s just a childish game of luck, where you draw cards at random, and go to the corresponding colorful square. Even if you’d play with your eightmonth-old baby sister, she’d very likely win, depending on how the cards were stacked.” But I said nothing. Why burst Miri’s bubble by explaining the reality of the Candyland game? She’d find out soon enough. Which she did. Sadly, it seemed

as if the cards were stacked against Miri, for she kept on drawing single colored squares, while I picked the lucky doubles, catapulting me way ahead of her on the candy trail. Miri’s pretty face fell as she faced her dose of bad luck and no tricks of the trade could help her progress. As the game continued in its lackadaisical manner, and I stifled bored yawns while slowly inching my gingerbread man along the colorful trail, things went from bad to worse. Miri had the misfortune of picking a Peppermint Forest card, which brought her back to the beginning of the trail, just as she was starting to make progress. Two salty tears formed at the corners of her eyes, and her mouth began to pucker. Poor soul! She had so counted on winning this game, on showing Mommy what a champion she was. “It’s okay, sweetie,” I tried to console her. “It’s only a game. You’ll win some other time.” My voice was soothing, but firm. Gotta teach her to handle disappointments in life. It’s never too early to learn how to handle being a loser.


Now the tears came, thick and fast. “But I wanted to win!” she sobbed, her heart clearly broken. “The game isn’t over yet,” I said, trying to sound positive, while discreetly riffling through the cards. I had an idea. I was going to play Fix-it Mommy, and make it all right. She was still young enough to fall for the scheme. “Let’s see if Miri can still win” I challenged, urging her to pick once more. I had carefully prepared a green lollipop card, which would take her all the way up to Lollipop Woods, three-quarters of the way to victory. “Ma! Look what I got!” she shrieked, drying her tears with a grubby palm. “A lollipop! I’m almost near Candy Castle. I’m gonna win, you’ll see!” And for the next ten lucky turns, as she consistently inched forward, she boasted to all her older siblings who had gathered to watch the rarity — Mommy playing a juvenile board game instead of starting bedtime — that she was gonna win and Mommy was gonna lose. Wait and see! Uh oh. Just as Miri was about to launch her way to victory, I picked a lucky card, that would take me to the coveted Candy Castle just a smidgen before my eager five-year-old. I quickly muttered something about making a mistake and picking the wrong card, before burying it at the bottom of the pile, as my older children smirked. Miri didn’t notice a thing as she proudly inched her gingerbread man into home base and allowed me to escort her into bed, her face glowing with victory. “Ma, why did you let her win?” my ten-year-old whispered, as Miri’s eyes finally closed, and her breathing turned even. “She didn’t play fair!”

like naïve little Miri, that our luck and skill propelled us to the rainbow trail? Do we look with disdain at those who have not been so blessed, whose gingerbread men got stuck on the Licorice Space and who lost an extra turn? What about those floundering in a swamp of unpaid bills, difficulties with parnassa, rebellious children or other festering issues? There are so many players seemingly stuck in the Molasses Swamp, desperate for the magical card that will take them to the house of Candyland. Do we, the gleeful winners, subconsciously pity them for the poor choices they made, the foolish paths they have chosen, while patting ourselves on the back for “picking the right cards?” Or do we realize that they have been placed there by our loving Tatty, who, for reasons we can never fathom, has manipulated the cards in our favor? It’s challenging to remember just Who is in charge as we play life-sized Candyland, reveling in our winning “picks,” Do we subconsciously magnanimously extending pity them for the poor sympathy to the players who somehow got stuck near the choices they made, the chocolate swamp and offerfoolish paths they have ing to teach them the tricks of the trade. chosen, while patting “If you’ll do it like me,” we ourselves on the back for silently whisper, “shop at the picking the right cards?” right stores, send your kids to the right schools, choose the right parnassa, then behind-the-scenes glimpse of the you’ll be a winner, too.

I stopped for a moment, contemplating the casual question, and then I realized there was no clear-cut answer. “Some people figure it out sooner than others, and some never figure it out at all.” “Oh.” And that was the extent of my daughters’ interest in Candyland.

25 CHAPTER

Recap: Rav Shalom is en route from Damascus to Eretz Yisroel.


YESHIVA DARCHEI NOAM HAS CHANGED ITS NAME TO YESHIVA KETANA OHR REUVEN SUFFERN, NY – Yeshiva Darchei Noam, the Elementary Division of Yeshiva Ohr Reuven, has announced that the school will now be known as Yeshiva Ketana Ohr Reuven. The name is being dedicated by the Yeshiva’s close friends, Moshe and Freeda Frankel, former parents and current grandparents of the school. Named in honor of the late Rav Reuven Frankel zt”l, Yeshivas Ohr Reuven has been providing a sterling Torah education to hundreds of students for over 25 years. “Rav Reuven’s dedication to Torah, his mesiras nefesh during Churban Europe, and his tireless devotion to his family, makes it an honor for Yeshiva Darchei Noam to adopt the Yeshivas Ohr Reuven name ‫לזכר נשמתו‬,” says Rosh Hayeshiva, Harav Bezalel Rudinsky. “This change will enhance the achdus in our mosdos, unifying all divisions from “‘Kindergarten to Kollel & Beyond.” Yeshivas Ohr Reuven was founded on the fundamentals of Ahavas Hashem, Ahavas Hatorah, and Ahavas Yisroel, and these lofty principles continue to guide the institution. “Our name may have changed, our mission has not! We will continue to provide the exceptional education that has become the hallmark of Yeshiva Darchei Noam, in Limudei Kodesh and General Studies,” S’gan Rosh Hayeshiva, Harav Benzion Brodie, affirms. In honor of the name change and over a quarter century of excellence in chinuch, a special dedication will take place at Yeshivas Ohr Reuven’s upcoming 25th Anniversary Dinner on May 23rd. The theme of the evening will be “Kindergarten to Kollel & Beyond” celebrating the superior Torah chinuch that Yeshivas Ohr Reuven is renowned for in the community; and its accomplished alumni who embody the values of the Torah.

Real Estate It Is Now Easier to Get a Mortgage THE AVERAGE INTEREST RATES HAVE GONE UP ž% since last fall. The fact that interest rates have gone up is no surprise to the house shopper who has watched the prospective mortgage payments go up. What is not readily known is that requirements to get a mortgage have eased. According to Keeping Current Matters (KCM), The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) quantifies the availability of mortgage credit each month with their Mortgage Credit Availability Index (MCAI) which is a summary measure which indicates the availability of mortgage credit at a point in time. The higher the index, the easier it is to get a mortgage. Here is a chart showing the MCAI over the last several months as rates have increased.

Have mortgage requirements actually eased? Yes. Here are two examples: 1. Credit scores: The score required to attain a mortgage has been falling over the last five months. There are more mortgages being approved with lower credit scores. 2. Down Payment Requirement: the percentage

of the purchase price necessary to place as a down payment on a home. In 2011, 2% of borrowers put less than 5% down. In the first quarter of 2017, 17% of borrowers are putting less than 5% down.

Bottom line: Between the easing of credit scores and the availability of programs for home buyers putting less than 5% down along with the higher FNMA loan limits, whether you are a current homeowner looking to move to a home that will better serve your family’s current needs, or a first-time buyer looking for a starter home, it is easier to get a mortgage today

than it has been at any other time in the last ten years. While this is comforting, what has not eased is the quality control restrictions on loans. Today, because of the digitalizing of mortgage applications and data, FNMA and FHMLC can cross reference data. An example is a client of mine who is purchasing a new home. It happens to be a foreclosure. There were serious questions on the occupancy of the property. What was the basis? The client had bought a foreclosed property 8 months ago and 4 months later sold it for a profit. Today, based on data available, we can find out whether the mortgage application applied for at that time (8 months ago) was for an owner occupied mortgage or investment loan because my client clearly had not moved into the property. After doing our cross-checking of data, we found out that the previous loan was in fact an investment mortgage and all was “kosher.” Quality control is probably the most important behind-the-scenes factor in successful mortgage applications, underwriting, commitments and closing. We will visit that topic another week.
