Thank you so much for the delicious recipes featured weekly! I’m very adventurous and like to try new recipes, so I was delighted when my friend advised me to try the Cinnamon Brownie in Issue #95. The cake was heavenly! Everyone simply loved it, and I want to thank Leah Stern for featuring such a mouth-watering recipe! Thank you for your great magazine. It’s really informative and fun to read.

WORTHY OF MENTION I wanted to share a bit info with readers about the dog attack that you wrote of last week: The security footage that showed the dog attacking the little boy was instrumental in getting the dog removed from that neighborhood. Many people would never think of installing security cameras due to the cost, but many times footage has been able to help remove dangerous criminals (or dogs) or help solve crimes in other ways. While expensive, cameras should be considered an investment in personal safety and that of the klal. Encouraging everyone to install a security camera, A Reader


HOW DO I KNOW? I attended the Supreme Symposium, and I was blown away by the wealth of information shared. There was one point, though, that I need some clarity on. I understand that eczema can lead to Red Skin Syndrome if steroids are wrongly used, but I still am unsure as to how to diagnose and treat real eczema. My one-year-old is suffering from eczema and has never been on steroids. How do I find out if it’s indeed eczema and not a symptom of something else? And what can I do to alleviate the suffering of this poor, helpless child? Will a change of diet M&S SHOE REPAIR

help? And is there a specialist in eczema who can give me a proper diagnosis and treatment protocol? Thank you so much for the help you provide the klal. I am so grateful that this prevalent issue is being addressed. RUCHY REESE RESPONDS: Thank you for your letter. There a few issues that I’d like to address: The symptoms of eczema and RSS are actually different, with RSS being more severe than true eczema. Feel free to call the Skin Healing Gemach to discuss the various symptoms. Many RSS patients (or their parents) are the type who have “tried everything,” except doctor-prescribed steroids. Unfortunately, there are many charlatans who prey upon the suffering, and many creams that are touted as “natural” have actually been shown to contain extremely strong steroids. In general, I always recommend sticking to major brands as they are more closely monitored. Unfortunately, even within our community, “natural” creams have been tainted with steroids and have caused or extended RSS. A full history and symptoms are needed to make the correct diagnosis. Change of diet has appeared to help real eczema, but it will never help RSS — though due to the cyclical flare cycles of RSS many patients have falsely assumed, at times, that food can cause flares. Again, getting that right diagnosis is the important factor, and sadly, many doctors nowadays have lost the art of correctly diagnosing. There are many different opinions on how to heal eczema, from the GAPS diet (as featured in this week’s new series) to sun exposure to herbal drops, but none of them have

We had a very frightening story this week that I would like to share. Our eight-year-old son went to take a bath. After a half hour I suddenly realized that he hadn’t come out. I called his name, and there was no response. I ran to the bathroom in a panic to check on him only to find him fast asleep in the bathtub, the water covering part of his face, but not yet his mouth or nose. I woke him up to see that b’chasdei Hashem he was okay. It seems that he was very exhausted and relaxing in the bath lulled him into a peaceful sleep. The encounter shook us up, and all night we were envisioning all kinds of scenarios. It goes without saying that younger children must be supervised in the bath, but care should be taken also when the older children bathe on their own. Be mindful that they are in the bath and call their name every so often to make sure they’re okay. May Hashem watch over all of us. Shaken-Up

WE NEED OUR SIDEWALKS The summer has arrived and the nice weather takes us outdoors. I, and many others, enjoy walking outside, when taking the children to playgroup, walking to the grocery, etc. Many of Monsey’s roads have sidewalks for the safety of pedestrians, but they have become unusable, as many people are positioning their sprinkler systems to spray on the sidewalks. Your grass needs to grow, not my shoes and stockings. It is often unsafe to step off the sidewalk, and my son, whom I take to playgroup, can’t handle the water. And what about the men walking to kollel? The mailmen? The elderly? It is the inconvenience that bothers me, but even more, the safety. Let’s take the message of sefirah, the tragedy that occurred ‫בפני שלא‬ ‫נהגו כבוד בזה‬, and let’s look out for others. Even the small things will bring tremendous zechusim. A gezunten summer, Beila Rosenberger

RESPECT OUR MINHAGIM I’m writing this letter after a beautiful yom tov spent with my family. It is always a delight to host my children and grandchildren and to enjoy family time together. I love and respect my children and their spouses dearly, and every wise mother and shvigger knows to appreciate every child for who they are, and not to weigh and measure their every action against what we would have liked to see. During yom tov I had some experiences with my married children-inlaw, where they didn’t realize how important certain minhagim, which I have kept to all the years, are to me. It was painful for me to watch them doing things differently than I would have liked in my kitchen and in my home. Please, dear children, even if you are not used to doing things the way your in-laws do, respect their minhagim and make every effort to comply with them when you’re in their home. This is especially true during Pesach

with its myriad chumros. Sensitivity and respect goes a long way in building great family relationships. A Proud Mother and Shvigger EDITOR’S BULLETIN: In regards to the pit bull attack that took place two weeks ago, askanim would like to remind the community about the significance of filing police reports any time a crime or a dangerous situation occurs. When people (or animals) have previously recorded histories of wrongdoing, it is more likely for convictions to happen. If you are victim, ch”v, please take the time to help the klal by filing a report.

HALACHA ALERT I would like to thank the reader who contacted me regarding the proper bracha for the energy bars featured in Issue #96. It has been discussed with several poskim well-versed in hilchos brachos and the consensus was that according to the Shilchun Aruch it’s a shaila if one can make a bracha on a product containing raw oats. According to halacha, these bars must be eaten during a meal to which one has washed for Hamotzi. I will present an amended recipe next week with the correct bracha. Leah Stern

TWO AND A HALF WEEKS BEFORE PESACH I found myself with a free half hour. Since oatmeal is a staple in my house and I was out of it, I decided to quickly run to the store to buy some before I picked up my baby from the babysitter. I realized once I got there that I did not have my Chodesh book with me. I needed to know the dates to see if the oats were still yoshon. I called my mother from the store, but I was unable to reach her. I then tried my sister-in-law. She was home and asked me if I was actually in the store. When I said yes, she told me she had four containers left that she needed to use up before Pesach. She then offered some of them to me. Being that she lived around the corner from my son’s babysitter, I picked him up and then went to her. It was hashgacha pratis that I first went to the store instead of picking up my baby and that I couldn’t reach my mother. My sister-in-law was very grateful that she didn’t have to throw out the two containers I took from her.

Becoming Weigh Smarter Spring-Cleaning Your Lifestyle WELCOME TO SPRING! I hope you’ve been enjoying the weather we’ve all been waiting for. With the beautiful, blossoming trees, hibernation is finally over. Take a peek outside this afternoon, and you’ll see the streets are full of kids, mothers and people from all walks of life taking in the fresh air. Some of you might be excited for summer, while others would prefer to hold on to their jackets — not necessarily to ward off the cold, but to hide the 32 pounds you promised yourself you would lose over the winter. And now, as we spring into the warmer months, you might feel pressure to drop weight quickly. Where does that leave you? First of all, I would like to fill you in on a little secret: There are others like you dealing with the same thing — myself included! Granted, I didn’t gain 32 pounds, but guess what? I’m up approximately seven or eight pounds since Pesach. How does that happen to a health nutrition coach? Well, I’d like to share my story to give you some insight. I married off my first child about a week before Pesach and took a vacation immediately afterward, during yom tov. I stayed at three different locations, but indulged in delicious gourmet foods at each one. And that, in a nutshell, is how I put on weight. I’m not complaining, nor am I upset about it. You see, I made a conscious decision to eat whatever I wanted for a full week, and I was willing to deal with the consequences of a few extra pounds. I made up my mind that right after Pesach, I would get myself back on track. Years ago, I would have dwelled on the extra weight; I would have gotten desperate and begun yo-yo dieting. But now, by making a clear choice and knowing what I would do afterward, I found myself in the driver’s seat. And fortunately, in a very short time, I was back to where I was. Why am I telling you this? Because you might not think a few silly pounds are a very big deal, but they certainly can be — it’s all about your per-

Some of you would prefer to hold on to your jackets — not necessarily to ward off the cold, but to hide the 32 pounds you promised yourself you would lose over the winter.

spective. Over the years, I’ve come to realize that weight gain is a deeply personal matter. Now, when I hear a thin person kvetching about all the weight they’ve gained, I understand where they’re coming from. It’s a very specific feeling that you, and only you, can experience, and no one should be made fun of for it. So now, we’re hopefully on the same page. Wherever you are with your weight at this point in time — stop! Don’t continue overeating just because that’s what you’ve been doing! This is a common habit, but I have no doubt that you can break it. You may be upset about your weight or feel out of control with your eating. Perhaps your mind is even playing tricks on you, and telling you to keep overeating because you’ve already gained the weight. However, deep inside, you know that in a few weeks, you will have to deal with even more weight to lose! Watch your mind chatter away, and see if you can observe and listen to what your mind is telling you without judgment. See if you can springclean your lifestyle in a way that will bring you closer to your goals, and track your results. And no matter where you are with your weight, try following some of these smart tips to get back on track.

Smart Tips • Drink two glasses of water first thing in the


morning. • Go for a walk or hit the gym if you can. • Start logging a food journal, and document every piece of food that enters your mouth. • Stop eating by seven or eight in the evening.

• For a few days, eat protein and vegetables only — that will help you get into fatburning mode. • Enjoy iced coffee made with unsweetened almond milk and stevia. • Have a few pieces of dark

chocolate each day. • Chew your food 20 times before you swallow. Now that you’ve finished your post-Pesach cleanup, it’s time to spring-clean your lifestyle. I hope you have a healthy, happy week.

Proposed Tax Increase in East Ramapo Budget Could Restore 14 Days of Transportation to Private Schools WITH SCHOOL BOARD ELECTIONS just two weeks away, voters in East Ramapo will be faced with a dilemma: choosing between lower taxes or adding additional staff, programming and non-mandated transportation for public school students on select days, all items that were eliminated in recent years in order to balance the district’s budget. Yeshiva parents have been scrambling to get their children to and from school during public school vacations, including winter break and President’s week, ever since 14 days of non-mandated busing that provided transportation to private school students on those days were slashed from the budget. The latest budget submitted to New York State Education Chancellor Maryellen Elia includes a 2.49 percent property tax increase that would put transportation for those days back in the budget and would also be used to hire five new public school teachers and restore certain extracurricular activities, as reported by The Journal News. Currently, a state tax cap allows for only a 1.48 tax percent increase each year, which means that the proposed budget would have to be approved by 60 percent of the voters in the

district in order to be pass. But for taxpayers to even have that choice, the proposed budget would have to be approved by Elia. The commissioner rejected a previously proposed budget that restored five days of non-mandated transportation to private schools because the budget failed to provide funding for educational programs to East Ramapo’s public schools. State Senator Ken Zebrowski blasted the new budget saying that it was inappropriate to include non-mandated busing in the budget until all previously cut public school programs had been reinstated. “Great strides were made over the past year to restore educational opportunities in this district,” said Zebrowski. “To switch course in Year Two and expend significant taxpayer dollars to fund non-mandated private school services is illadvised.” East Ramapo voters will head to the polls on May 16th to vote on both the proposed budget and to elect school board candidates.

New Kosciuszko Bridge Opens with LED Light Show THE FIRST SPAN OF THE KOSCIUSZKO BRIDGE, which connects Brooklyn and Queens, opened last week with a dazzling light show, a taste of the New York Harbor of Lights project which will bring multicolored LED lights to the George Washington Bridge and seven MTA-operated bridges and tunnels. Franklin Delano Roosevelt was president of the United States when the Kosciuszko Bridge was completed in 1939. At the time, the bridge was designed to carry 10,000 cars daily, far fewer than the 180,000 that traverse the 78-year-old structure today. A second span of the bridge is expected to be completed by the year 2020, four years ahead of schedule. Two sections of the existing bridge will be imploded this summer to allow for construction of the second span. Like the new Tappan Zee Bridge, the new Kosciuszko is a cable-stayed bridge, the first to be completed in New York State. According to Governor Andrew Cuomo’s office, LED lights will also be installed by 2018 on the RFK Triborough, Whitestone, Throgs Neck, Whitestone, Henry Hudson, Verrazano, Marine Parkway and Cross Bay bridges as well as the Queens Midtown and Battery tunnels. The bridges will be illuminated for special events and Gov-

ernor Cuomo said that he expects the lighting to bring financial gains to the state. “As we continue to move New York’s bold infrastructure plan forward, we are setting a national model for safe, reliable transportation, while bolstering the state’s tourism industry and driving the regional economy,” said Governor Cuomo. “This remarkable light show across the New York City skyline symbolizes the connection and strength of communities across the region.”

THE AIR SMELLED OF SO MANY THINGS: air, water, salt, dirt, grass, life. Henya vomited incessantly. When there’s pain, even things of beauty hurt. Like a kiss on a wound. And a new estate on Henya’s friends disagree with her decian acre of waterfront land. She didn’t know she’s sion to move. Starting off in the new settlehurting, so used to it was she. In brief moments, she would forget the pain ment is not easy for the young mother. and peer the baby deep in the eye, noting his iris threads weaving together to look, to see, to delight, and she delighted in that visceral experience through the eyes of another. But mostly, she found herself bored, restless, unaccustomed to the plainness of joy. She strolled through the as yet uneven streets with her Silver Cross carriage, the shock springs bouncing at every pebble. The summer day was roping itself in, colors draining out to make room for the nothingness of the night, and the world would go crazy with the colors of magic: purple, a deep rash of magenta, and the swish of gold and orange, and she’d momentarily breathe. Full shudder, deep down to below her rib cages, below the knot of earthworms in Out of all the young families like her her solar plexus, just opening up wide to let the Creator’s joy in. But own who had settled in the city, only then she’d catch herself. Back to her thoughts, her remembrances, fifteen chose to relocate to the end of her story. America, right here by the water. One can say she was frozen over in her own cube of ice, still a child, almost, back in Europe, still young and perpetually afraid beneath that icy veneer, her emotions dulled to below zero in temperature so as not to feel. Faivel grew despite her, cut a tooth, wobbled and stood. He engaged her, and she made silly sounds whenever she remembered. Yitzchok Yosef was often gone. He was sometimes away all day. Still traveling, selling the other homes, showing them to inter-

ested buyers, building the shul, the infrastructure for a Jewish community, meeting the people, talking, talking this dream into being. Coming home, he tended to the gardens, big patches of seedlings he’d planted with his own hands. There were small things already growing, so fast, the vegetables so satisfying. Her husband was putting himself into too many things at once. While she had no friends. In Williamsburg, she’d had Bianca, and then Bianca’s friends: Sura, Blima, all those others from inderhiem, they’d been a balm to each other. But now, here... without someone to draw her out, she was retreating back into the messages that were planted in her early brain, when she’d been much too young to lose parent and sibling and every person in the world she had known. The Nazis’ message was instilled in her for five of her most delicate years, as she worked to de-jewel corpses day after day after day, aiding in the confiscation of Jewish ownership to Nazi possession. You are the scum of the scum. Work the most demeaning and soul-dirtying work to grovel for your life, or it will be over. You are in constant, constant danger. There were fifteen families in this desolate place. Out of

march all the young families like her own who had settled in the city, only fifteen chose to relocate to the end of America, right here by the water. It was like those few had been handpicked and kicked to the curb, to go live chutz l’machaneh. Her new neighbors, too, they were encased in their own ice, and nobody but the ones possessing the warmest of warmth could melt the encasements, nearly invisible in its translucency, yet bending the light as it hit the glass, skewing who they truly were. Mrs. Engelman came to borrow a glass of sugar for her marble cake. Since Lot’s wife, borrowing was never about the need for the item, but to convey relationship. Henya didn’t pick up the cue, didn’t advance the friendship by asking about the recipe, sharing her own, or finding out that Mrs. Engelman served her husband two slices upon his return from work. Mrs Engelman came, knocked, left with her measuring cup brimming, but the words she had on her tongue stayed there, weighing it down, reversing its way back into her brain, reverberating there for hours of imagined conversation. Henya was lonely, but the place was filling up. Only three months, and they’d already grown. Twenty families now. And those five families who joined those who came before them, Henya wondered. Why did they do it? The world was walking on fastpaced legs toward its destiny, and only twenty had chosen to drop out of the city grid, and just enjoy each day, lap after lap of water on the edges of earth, rustle of the leaves, squirrels dancing between them, the manure of cows, the soft earth giving way under heels… heels?

Supper on a Stick

By Draizy Wercberger

Somehow, I find that children will eat supper more eagerly if the food is presented a little differently; especially if it’s threaded onto a skewer and named something unhealthy like “lollypop” chicken. Here I share with you three fabulous recipes that are all served as “supper on a stick.” Behold how simple it is to turn everyday, mundane food into something pleasant to look at and fun to eat! Enjoy!

PREPARING FOR A CAREER In anticipation of the Business Enrichment Course, PCS spoke to graduates from the previous classes. Tell us about your current job.How did the PCS Business Enrichment Course prepare you for your career?

MORDECHAI KLEIN: I am a regional manager for a real estate management company. I manage close to 400 units. The education I received is exclusively from the PCSBusiness Enrichment Course. My computer knowledge—specifically in Excel—is integral for managing my budget. The accounting classes gave me a firm understanding of monetary concepts; I learned how to use money properly in order to make more money. I also learned to appreciate and utilize the Internet for integral marketing purposes that I useevery single day. Without this knowledge I would not have gottento where I am today. Y.T. I am an administrator in training for a nursing home. This course prepared me in many ways. Coming straight out of yeshiva, I knew nothing about the business world. The computer courses, as well as the accounting courses, were very helpful. The marketing and sales classes were also crucial in teaching me how to recruit new patients. The public speaking courses taught me how to- and how not to- talk to clients and colleagues. In general, the various fields and views that I learned about were very helpful in launching my career. For whom would you recommend this course?

M.K. I would recommend this course for someone leaving yeshiva, who is trying to understand the business world and does not yet have a specific goal in mind. This course will give him strong inspiration and direction. The wide array of classes offered in this coursewill help him determine which field to pursue afterward. I would also recommend this course for a newbie in the business world. This course will help him take his skills to the next level and increase his value as an employee. It will also give him the necessary skills to successfully launch a business. Y.T: I would recommend this course to anyone who would like to get to the next level at his current job. Why is it important to receive proper training from industry experts before entering the business world?

M.K. The business world is aggressive and competitive. You don’t have the luxury of making big mistakes. Mistakes can set you back and be very costly. The instructors are here to help us succeed.

ME? A HEALTH NUT? YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING. I WAS THE TYPE OF KID WHO could never have enough Chew Chews (remember those hard squares that came in brick packs?), consumed Bissli by the mountainful, and would be content eating pizza and fries for supper 365 days a year (besides for Pesach, of course.) As a teen and young adult (and older adult…), I would consume cases of instant noodle soup and would always make sure to have a backup stash of chocolate. Now, don’t you judge me yet. I made sure to eat only fat-free yogurt, I managed to down wholewheat bread for breakfast (Mom’s orders), and ate my mother’s nutritious health suppers without complaint (don’t get me started on the kasha, though...). I had an overall healthy balance that tipped a bit more to the sweet side… So, if someone back then would have prophesied about my eating habits and lifestyle at this point, I probably would have had a good laugh and continued fantasizing about my

ice cream-stocked freezer “when I’ll be a mother.” But all that changed when Shiffy was born. Shiffy was born on a hectic Erev Sukkos looking like a perfect angel. Even her sweet little cry sounded angelic. For the first few hours, at least. Shiffy made sure we bonded really well right from the start as she gave me constant reason to hold, cuddle and soothe her. I was comforted by staff and family members that crying is very normal for newborns and she’ll adjust to the real world soon enough. Somehow, I couldn’t remember my other kids having such a traumatic adjustment period… As I was getting ready to go home, the head nurse came to inform me that Shiffy could not leave yet. She had not relieved herself in her 48 hours on planet Earth and they just wanted to make sure

everything was working well. The next few anxious hours were spent biking her tiny legs, feeding her every 30 minutes, and then stuffing her with a Similac bottle (against my usual policy). I guess her little tummy was quite full at that point because at 4:00 p.m. I was notified that all was well and we could finally leave! Whew! Little did I know that it would take another 12 days for that to happen again. The rest of yom tov was filled with song, both in the sukkah and in the baby’s crib. Some labeled her colicky, some unabashedly called her a “crybaby,” and my husband and I took turns dancing around the house trying to rock her into a semi-calm state. She slept at halfhour intervals, waking with piercing shrieks. As the days progressed we noticed a new development. Shiffy had started spitting up. Tiny amounts at first, and full feedings in the next few days. Whatever went in, came out. Nights were a terror. The crying would get worse as we stumbled up and down the hallway with her until the wee hours of the morning. We would

was a wonder med no more. What now? The pediatrician had nothing to offer and even less to say. “She has a very immature stomach. Give it some time.” Her words, verbatim. What can a mother do? I davened to Hashem to protect my sanity and tried whatever I could to make her more comfortable. I fed her while she was lying down, upright and curled up. I tried feeding large amounts four hours apart, and small amounts two hours apart. My days were accompanied by cries and spit-ups. The worst was the constipation. She would shriek, showing signs of terrible pain and discomfort. Every 7–10 days she would go through this laborious ordeal, never really getting comfortable. I cried for her, and with her, as I tried to massage her stomach, bike her feet and coax her along. It was utterly heartrending to watch a little neshamale in so much pain. Then the rashes started. I noticed it on her ankle first. Rough patches of red skin would crack and bleed at the crease of her leg. Then her arms turned rough. As in, steel-woolrough. And then her cheeks! I broke down. Poor baby, did she really have to start scratching her body, too? My tefillos became more fervent as I watched her scratch and scratch and scratch and scratch. The itch didn’t let her fall asleep, and it woke her once she finally fell into dreamland. I tried applying Bacitracin, Vaseline, Mustella, baby lotion, all to no avail. I kept on hearing the

Every single morsel of food caused an extreme reaction the second it only touched her lips!

A quick visit to the doctor confirmed what had been in our minds. Diagnosis: the popular and infamous Reflux. She was started on Zantac, and we finally had some relief. I actually got to sleep 3–4 hours a night! For an entire week! Then it started again. Back to the doctor and home with a new prescription, Shiffy was put onto Prevacid. She actually liked the flavor and gave me a cute little smile as the liquid trickled onto her tongue. I sang to Hashem for this wonderful medication as Shiffy finally started acting like a mentch. She slept better, kept almost everything down and was much calmer during the day. For three whole months I enjoyed the wonderful change and a happier Shiffy. I was glad to be able to tune into my other kinderlach again and got back to keeping house in an organized fashion. As I work from home and have flexible hours, I was glad to tackle a mountain of assignments that had accumulated. And then, one nice morning, it all came back. Just like that. The crying, the constant spitting up, the sleepless nights, all without any prior warning. Thinking the medication was expired, we tried getting a new bottle, upped the dosage, switched pharmacies… Prevacid

word “cortisone,” but somewhere in my tired brain I recalled hearing something about its negative effects, so I didn’t want to touch it. I can write a book with the advice that came pouring in from friends and family: You must stop using Tide! Go off dairy! Quit eating eggs! You must move; get out of your apartment! Go to Arizona! Go to Florida! Go to Honolulu! I know they were well-intentioned, but it was so frustrating hearing everyone say, “But have you tried ___?” People would tell me about their experience with eczema and comfort me that, “You’ll see, she’ll outgrow it one day.” I was really looking forward to that day, but in the meantime, I had a cranky baby and a flying house to attend to. At times it was better and at times it was worse, and I kept on trying every idea in the book. Meanwhile, in my home office, I was trying to tackle a mountain of work with a sad little baby on my lap. (She was expelled from three babysitters consecutively…) She had moments of being happy, but for the most part, she was pretty miserable. Her skin itched and she constantly scratched it. Her nose ran, non-stop, like a faucet. She commonly had a mucousy cough to the point that I

had delayed all her vaccinations because she always seemed sick. The next appointment was with a dermatologist. When I entered the waiting room, I was surprised to see

that Shiffy was one of four (!) babies there for eczema. The dermatologist had very little time or patience and told me simply that my child had eczema and that her skin just “lacked the ability to retain moisture.” When I asked her if she had suggestions for foods to avoid she looked at me like I was speaking Japanese. She curtly told me she didn’t know anything about that and gave me prescriptions for steroid creams. I threw the prescriptions away and never went back for my follow-up appointment. My final visit was to an allergist. He told me, while he felt very strongly that Shiffy did not have any allergies, he would still do the standard allergy workup on her. As he predicted, all of the allergy tests came back normal, with a slight allergy to dust. The allergist told me the dust was most likely the reason for her constant runny nose and that he could give me a prescription for an allergy medicine. All doctors I saw gave me prescriptions to treat the symptoms, but were never able to discover the root of the problem. How frustrating it feels to be practically screaming out to the medical community to help your child and they tell you it’s “fine,” “normal,” or “that’s just how they are,” and then push you out the door. There were moments of happiness where I could see the real Shiffy shining through the pain, but those moments were rare. We felt like we were watching a ticking time bomb. As we started introducing solids, literally everything that touched her lips would make her break out in fiery flare ups all over her face and neck, immediately. Every single morsel of food caused an extreme reaction the second it only touched her lips! Then she became much worse. She started crying all. day. long. If she wasn’t crying she was clinging to me. Often, she would cry even if I held her. Sometimes when I held her, she would fight me. She would scratch my face and claw at me. She would wake up at night in agony, flopping all over the bed. Her screaming was constant for anywhere from 20–45 minutes, while she suffered from the gas trapped in her stomach. On these nights I sat with her, crying, asking Hashem what more could I do? How could I help her? I had tried my best. I said, “Hashem, You can make people sick, and only You can heal them!” I pleaded with Him to show us the light at the end of this dark, sad tunnel. The final straw was when Shiffy’s rashes significantly worsened. She was covered in huge, red blotches with oozing puss and blisters.

Listening to a neighbor’s advice, I went wild in desperation buying organic cotton undershirts, organic cotton crib sheets and an organic cotton blanket (I will not disclose the cost of that shopping expedition…). I paid a visit to three different pediatricians to get a diagnosis. All were baffled. Maybe it’s MRSA? Maybe it’s impetigo? Or maybe staph? One prescribed medication, saying there’s a slight chance it will help. One advised that I should just let it heal on its own. The other brought in a laptop and tried matching up the looks of her skin condition with the images. At that point I had just about had enough. A doctor who needs to refer to images on a screen to treat a skin rash? What do they get their Ph.D.’s for? I can do that just as well without going to college for ten years. I always loved researching, just not such painful topics. Over the next few days I researched and investigated, probed and studied, skipping sleep for nights in a row. I pored over everything I could find until Hashem with His infinite chesed displayed the answer in front of my eyes with such clarity. I found that Shiffy had a condition called Leaky Gut, an autoimmune disorder. Not a single doctor was able to tell me that. And there was a wonderful healing protocol that b’ezras Hashem would cure Shiffy from the inside out: The GAPS diet. As we started learning more and more about Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS), the information we discovered was equally shocking, reaffirming and bittersweet.

Eczema isn’t the only thing the diet was meant to help! With tremendous siyata d’Shmaya, I got in touch with a bunch of women who formed a support group of sorts, doing the GAPS diet together. We kept in touch over the phone, helping each

others with chizuk and recipes. One was in Montreal helping her teen recover from depression. Two were friends from Brooklyn helping their kids through the diet to heal ADHD. A few others were trying the diet for eczema and psoriasis, and there was one who was trying it for Crohn’s. Another woman from London started the diet to help with anxiety. But the most astounding was a second woman in London. She had started the diet for a child diagnosed with autism. After two years of following the protocol her son was off the autism charts! When she came to America for a family simcha I had to see it with my own eyes. I traveled to Boro Park to meet her and her son and I couldn’t help doubting her. How could he have ever been labeled autistic? He was a normal six-year-old! Baruch Rofeh Cholim! My own experience with the diet was going amazingly well, too. Although it was a tremendous under-

taking, and took quite an adjustment in the beginning, we started noticing positive changes pretty soon. After three days, Shiffy slept through the night. On Day Four she displayed signs of her constipation slowly easing. Day Five came with further progress and the condition improved dramatically from there. When she relieved herself two days in a row, it was a miracle for us! By the end of the week she was smiling for the most part of the day and even played on her own for a few minutes. By the end of the third week her rashes were gone. Besides for a bit of roughness at the original spot at her ankle, her skin was silky smooth. A month into the diet, Shiffy was sleeping through each night and experiencing signs of healthy digestion on a constant basis. She had deliciously soft skin which we made sure to kiss at every opportunity, and finally, she was accepted by a babysitter. There was no trace of the runny nose or coughing. And we finally took her off Prevacid. (She had been taking it all along for the tiny amount of respite it had provided.) Although the symptoms were gone, we knew that the road to recovery on GAPS is long. We continued faithfully and slowly with constant tefillos to the One Above. I am amazed at the complete metamorphosis it brought to my home, to my kids and to myself. A miracle truly unfolded. And now, as a way of expressing hakaras hatov to the Hashem, I’d love to share my journey with you. So, join me for the next few weeks on the road to a healthy gut.

Editor’s note: The views expressed in this column reflect one woman’s account and recollection of a medical journey. While many attribute their healing from various issues to the GAPS diet, the GAPS diet may not be appropriate for everyone. Please discuss your personal health with your health practitioner before beginning any diet or drastic change in lifestyle. Please note as well, that various skin (and other) conditions may not be helped by dietary changes, such as steroid damage often misdiagnosed as eczema. Getting the correct diagnosis for any condition is vital.

Perhaps you’ve seen it happen this past week: A school bus stops, the red lights flash and the stop sign opens, but instead of stopping, an impatient driver attempts to rush past the bus in a sudden lunge for freedom… And instead is pulled over by a different set of lights — those that flash both red and blue. Welcome to Operation Safe Stop, a government funded program that puts police aboard school buses or sends them trailing behind in both unmarked or marked vehicles. To better understand the safety issues that spurred Operation Safe Stop, I interviewed one of Monsey’s experienced transportation managers who, though forthcoming with valuable information, prefers to remain nameless.

WHAT IS OPERATION SAFE STOP ALL ABOUT? Operation Safe Stop is a yearly event that takes place all over New York in an effort to remind the public about bus safety laws and common sense. During Safe Stop, the police crack down, hiding and following buses, handing out tickets to drivers who choose to ignore safety laws, specifically in relation to school buses. This year’s Operation Safe Stop began the past Thursday and lasts roughly a week to two weeks, so we are currently in the middle of it. Unfortunately, people are getting pulled over left and right, because they are not paying attention to the safety laws that protect our children.

WHAT PROMPTED OPERATION SAFE STOP? Unfortunately, it’s an epidemic; people are always in a rush and don’t have patience to follow a bus, being forced to stop at every second house while another child boards or gets off. Often, drivers are stressed-out and try to pass a bus, or sometimes they are just distracted and don’t see the flashing lights or other signs of a stopping bus. Because of this, some bus drivers — though technically not allowed — block

92 / THE MONSEY VIEW / May 3, 2017 / 845.600.8484

the street by stopping sideways, in order to prevent those drivers, who are putting our children in danger, from passing. The goal of Operation Safe Stop is to raise public awareness about the very real safety concerns that come from drivers trying to bypass buses.

WHAT CAN PARENTS DO TO HELP THEIR CHILDREN BE SAFE AT THE BUS STOP? Be with your child at the bus stop, even if he is ten years old, because he is still a child, and he needs your eyes and ears there to help him stay safe. Make sure that your children know that they should never run into the street when they see the bus approaching, but instead wait for the driver to give the signal that the children can cross. This applies even if the stop sign is open. The driver has to stop traffic, and because he’s positioned higher up and sees farther in all directions, he can see dangers that perhaps the child can’t. So, teach your child to always wait for the driver’s signal. Don’t even let them step off the sidewalk until that signal is shown! Also, never let a child run after a bus in the street, trying to catch it. Rather, let the kid miss the bus and take him with a car service if you have to, because a child chasing a bus is nervous, not thinking well and

May 3, 2017 / THE MONSEY VIEW / 93 / 845.600.8484

Operation Safe Stop is a yearly event that takes place all over New York in an effort to remind the public about bus safety laws and common sense. not tuned into the surroundings. This can lead to kids dashing in front of cars, behind vehicles that are backing up and the like. At the same time, the driver’s mind is elsewhere, not behind him, and he’s not aware that a kid may dart in front of his bus to grab his attention. It has happened that kids have slipped and fallen under moving bus wheels. The risk of danger is greatly increased when it comes to chasing after a bus. When the bus stops to pick up or drop off your child, don’t try to ask questions from the drivers, bus rebbis or teachers; it throws the driver off schedule, increases his stress, and makes focusing harder — potentially leading to dangerous driving. The same goes for calling a driver on his cell phone. If you’ve missed the bus by one minute, plan alternative transportation; these calls distract the driver, and he needs to be fully focused on driving safely. When it’s raining or snowing, make sure you and your child are clearly visible. Here’s a big one: Parents have to watch their children outside at all times, even when not waiting for the bus! Parents don’t realize it, but drivers experience nissim every single day! For instance, I’ve had it that kids have flown directly in front of my bus on their little bikes, especially kids from families who have driveways or live on streets that are sloped. In one instance, I was very traumatized after a threeyear-old little boy missed my bus by mere inches. The outcome could have been tragic! Parents should also realize that various conditions like traffic, garbage trucks or weather (or parents who throw off the schedule when they try to talk to

94 / THE MONSEY VIEW / May 3, 2017 / 845.600.8484

the rebbis/teachers!) can affect the timely arrival of the bus. Whatever happens, don’t harass the driver!


Bus drivers should take it easy and be in a calm state before driving. I tell my drivers to be at their bus five minutes beforehand, drink a coffee and relax a few minutes before beginning the route. I also remind them that it’s not their problem if there is construction or traffic or snow; their job is to be safe rather than on time. Timing is the manager’s issue, not the bus driver’s.

WHAT IS YOUR MESSAGE TO DRIVERS WHO HAVE TO CONTEND WITH BUS TRAFFIC? We all understand that it’s hard to sit for hours a day in traffic, due to the hundreds of buses on the road. Nobody blames you for feeling frustrated, but we will blame you if you put our kids at risk! Realize that driving a bus is a hard job and drivers are trying their best to drive carefully, safely and keep to their scheduled routes. They definitely have no desire to hold up traffic! So don’t try to outsmart the buses or honk at them, since I can guarantee you that the driver is doing his best! Just wait patiently! On the flip side, it does sometimes happen that a bus driver can be reckless. If that happens, note the school, the time, the location and the bus number, and please call the bus manager. Let him know you’ve seen the driver engage in dangerous driving. We managers typically have a logging system we use to track complaints about drivers. We only want safe drivers on board. Just remember, everyone is committed to doing the best job possible, so try to stay focused, obey the safety laws and remember: It may be your kid on board! Don’t you want him to be safe?

At higher speeds, drivers can be fined $600 plus court costs and receive either eight or eleven points, depending on the severity of the offense. In rare cases, drivers can also be sentenced to up to 15 days in jail. Having a conviction on your record can have other unwelcome consequences: Your insurance rates can go up and you may face stiffer penalties in the event of a future moving violation. Once your case is in court, prosecutors have While in some parts of the state, police the ability to offer a plea deal which could involve an offer of no points, a lesser number of officers seem to give out tickets with points or a reduced fine.

It’s a police car, and maybe, just maybe, you were driving a few miles per hour over the speed limit. If you live in New York, odds are good that you are going to get a ticket sooner or later, said Hershel Goldstein of the Law Offices of Zev Goldstein, which has been defending clients for more than 25 years. “In New York, there are so many officers giving


conviction on the young man’s record. “Meanwhile this young man had gotten a commercial driver’s license and was working as a tow truck driver, but because of the conviction, his license was suspended and he couldn’t work anymore,” said Goldstein “The person he had hired was under the misconception that after 18 months there would be no points if he pleaded guilty but that wasn’t true. Sadly, there was no happy ending in this case.” In an interesting local twist, Goldstein has had cases of drivers who were ticketed and given points on their license for twirling their peyos as they drove. “A police officer a few lanes over sees someone doing that and they see someone with his hand by his ear and assume there is a cell phone,” said Goldstein. “You can claim that the officer was wrong, but it can be very hard to prove.” New York has stiff penalties for cell phone use while driving. Drivers can receive five points for cell phone violations, with new drivers facing a 60-day suspension of their license. “It is not illegal to hold your phone in your hand while you drive in New York,” said Goldstein. “But the problem is how does a police officer know what you are doing with it? You can’t just show phone records to prove you weren’t talking, because maybe you were messaging or looking at your pictures. There is a presumption that if you are holding your phone you are using it, so a driver who is twirling his peyos may be giving the appearance of impropriety.” Another violation that can have devastating ramifications for local families? Neglecting to seat-belt children, a violation that carries a three-point penalty per child. “For a non-Jewish family with one kid, not having them put on their seatbelt means that they can get three points,” said Goldstein. “But for a Jewish family with eight kids, if five kids aren’t wearing seatbelts, that is a fifteen-point violation, which means the driver can automatically lose their license.” The moral of the story? Learn the laws of the road and obey them. One day, you might end up saving yourself a lot of money and aggravation.

Walk in with an appetite, walk out an expert

AS TOLD TO SHEVY HOLLANDER “YOU MUST SLOW DOWN! This is unsafe.” “Do you want to take over the wheel?” I asked tiredly, for what must have been the fifth time since we left the wedding in Monsey. Really, if I would have the option of sitting in the passenger seat right then, instead of focusing on the dark highway, I would be catching up on some much-needed shut-eye. Why did my wife choose to spend those cherished two hours of quiet watching the road — and my every action on it — as if I hired her to be my personal driving coach? And just for the record, I was five miles below the speed limit. A few years down the road, when my key ring had not held anything reading Toyota or Pontiac in a while, I’d remind my wife that she was the reason I bid my car adieu. To be perfectly honest, it was just one of many reasons. Living in Brooklyn, it really didn’t make any sense to put up with the hassle of parking and the expense of keeping up a car. I lived around the corner from my shteibel, a ten-minute walk to work, and there was a grocery, dry goods store, Boro Park’s most popular wedding hall and pharmacy between the two. And on the occasion that I needed to get to a simcha or event that was longdistance, I was more than pleased to relinquish the driver’s seat and the midnight focus on the road and do what my wife had not thought of doing when our marriage was still young: sleep through the ride in blissful oblivion. The years moved on, and when the first hairs in my beard started fading to grey, we outgrew our apartment. And with outgrew I mean that the dining room was already housing two of my boys and we were instituting a number system to manage the line for the shower. Looking for new accommoda-

tions was not something we could push off any longer. We researched rentals, we looked into homes; the numbers were dizzying and totally out of our range. We decided to join the mass exodus to Monsey. With my parents and most of my siblings living in the ‘burbs, it was a decision that was reached without too many qualms. Settling into Monsey life, it was easy to get used to the trees, the grass, the parks, the spacious supermarkets and the country-like summer air; less so, the distance to the stores and the miles of sidewalks between our home and just about anywhere we needed to get to daily. It didn’t take long for me to realize that it was time to reclaim my status as a New York State driver. I pulled out my driver’s license — which had been renewed over the previous decade and a half for the sole purpose of being my ID card and to prove that I was over 21 — and I hit the market for a car. It took a few days to make myself at home at the steering wheel of my Pacifica (a steal of a deal, they told me) as I learned which traffic lights to avoid at all costs, how to make sharp turns and at what speed one cruises up a hill. By the time two months passed, I was ready to venture onto the highway on my own to attend a bar mitzvah in Brooklyn. The night was foggy as I cruised down the Palisades on my way home to Monsey. My eyelids were doing this downward motion and the dark, quiet stretch was soothing my brain into a pre-slumber. I rolled the windows down, letting the cold air slap my face and keep me awake. I turned the music volume up, and then out of pure desperation, called my brother on bluetooth to keep a conversation going.

There were still ten miles to go; ten dark, excruciating, mind-numbing miles. I had to get onto the Thruway fast, before I fell asleep. I pressed down the gas, hard, until I saw red. And blue. And they were flashing. I was being pulled over by a cop for speeding. I was awake in an instant. “Good evening,” the officer greeted me, probably relieved to break up the long, boring night. I returned his greeting and heeded his request to turn over license and registration. “You’ve been driving at 12 miles over the speed limit,” he chastised me. He slapped a portfolio open and started preparing my ticket. “Officer,” I appealed to him. “You are 100% right. I was speeding, and I was wrong. But, officer…” I looked him in the eye. “I have a driver’s license for over 20 years, and in all these years, I never received a ticket. My record is clean. Can I ask you, officer, to look away just this once, and you have my word that I’ll take utmost care not to blight my record?” He didn’t believe me, but he turned around and went to his car to check. I heard him whistle, and he returned to my window.. “Wow.” He shook his head from side to side, with admiration in his eyes. “I’ve never seen the likes of this before. Twenty years and a clean record? I’m just going to let you go. I wouldn’t want to ruin a record like that. Good evening and drive safely!” “Thank you.” I shook his hand warmly, and then I continued on the way to Monsey. It’s 14 months later, and I drive with great care. After all, if an officer decided against ruining my perfect 20-year record, why should I?

The first non-electric, gas-lit traffic lights were installed outside the Houses of Parliament in London to control the overflow of horse-drawn traffic. It lasted all of a few weeks, when a leak in the gas lines severely injured the police officer who was manually controlling the lights.

The yellow light didn’t exist until 1920. Until that point drivers didn’t have a slow-down interval. There was only a warning buzz when the color changed, and it caused plenty of accidents. A Detroit police officer, William Potts, added the yellow light to the traffic light, which is a great thing — even if drivers consider it a signal to speed up and beat the red light.

Until 2013, the Garden State

Parkway had three traffic lights, surprising drivers out of the blue while they cruised at 80 mph. They’d slam on their breaks, or not stop in time, and it led to many fatal accidents.

Traffic lights are typically connected to area power circuits and in a case of a power outage, they just may go black. In such case, drivers should treat each traffic light as a four-way stop, with the driver on the right having the right-of-way. It’s also important to watch out for and obey police officers manning the traffic.

WHY THOSE COLORS? The red and green, for “stop” and “go” respectively, were derived from early train signals, indicating when trains should maintain speed and when they should come to a stop. Red seems to have been chosen for its highest wavelength — the fact that it is visible from the greatest distance.

Here’s what a blinking traffic light means: Red: Come to a complete stop, then proceed when you can. Yellow: Proceed with caution.

In the heart of Prague’s oldest neighborhood there is a street, or rather alley, so narrow that it’s impossible for two people to pass each other in it. Two traffic lights were installed on either end to signal when the street is free or occupied, although most do not take it seriously and they end up colliding with someone from the opposite end.

THE UPSIDE-DOWN TRAFFIC LIGHT There were many Irish immigrants living in Tipperary Hill, in Upstate New York when traffic signal lights were installed at the main intersection. Local Irish youth would throw stones on the traffic lights, objecting the placement of red (a British color) over the green (Irish color). It was such a major issue that the town installed a “green-over-red” traffic light in place of the traditional version, which is still in operation today.

The Traffic Light Tree is a public sculpture in London. At over 26 feet tall and containing 75 sets of lights, each controlled by a computer, it is the most confusing traffic symbol in the world to motorists who don’t know that it’s just an attraction for tourists and locals.

Real Estate Is Monsey for You? ONE OF THE MOST ATTRACTIVE attributes of the greater Monsey community is the safety. Some old-timers will tell you that they never lock their doors. Violent crime is very low, and so my husband says that our policemen have very little to do, so they seem to give out a lot of traffic tickets! Speaking to insurance agent Eric Jaslow from State Farm insurance in West Nyack, NY, educates me that insurance rates for cars and homes are quite a bit less than in NYC. This is because crime is lower here than in the city, and insurance companies calculate that risk in their insurance cost. A comparison between someone insuring a home worth $700,000 in Rockland County versus a $700,000 in Brooklyn (is there such a home?) can be a difference of more than $1,500 a year! The difference in auto insurance is even more startling. A client who relocated from Brooklyn to Monsey told me that his car insurance went down almost $3,000 per year, for just one car! When moving to a new area, the cost of the mortgage payment obviously is key in the decision making. But there are other costs and savings that need to be taken into account. Some examples are: • Utilities: What is the projected cost? • Yard maintenance and snow removal • Home repairs • Bungalow colony— or not? • Insurance: car and life

Sometimes, it’s not only the money.

• Traveling costs: commuting to work and car services if one doesn’t drive or have a second car • Groceries • Tuition • Day camps/ sleepaway camp • Babysitting • Sheitel machers/ clothing And the list can go on. For one person, moving to the suburbs is actually a cost saver and for another it means major additional expenses. Sometimes, it’s not only the money. Just yesterday I was speaking with a woman who asked me if she should officially move to Monsey. She has a home here and she comes every Shabbos. She told me that she was concerned because her children are in excellent schools in Brooklyn. I told her that was less concerned about the kids but more concerned for her marriage, because both she and her husband have demanding careers in Brooklyn. The move to Monsey would mean that children see less of their parents, and she and her husband would see less of each other. Most people who move to Monsey from the city will rave about the quality of life: the space, the yards, the slower pace — but as you can see, this is a very individual decision.
