Kashrus Alert

Gluten-Free Resources

You printed a heartwarming story “Esther” which we all enjoyed reading. I just wish to point out that a chicken with a broken wing poses a serious kashrus concern, and should be shown to a Rav to determine if it is kosher or not (depending on exactly which part of the wing was broken). Mime Feiga might have been better off selling the chicken to the gypsies! Although most housewives today do not come across such sheilos on a regular basis, I still think it’s important to at least know such basics. Thank you,

I’d like to respond to the letter that was sent in by a woman saying that there isn’t enough out there for those who are gluten intolerant. I thought I’d share with her and the general public that I recently came across a wonderful website www.goingfo o dglutenfree.com. Although not all products are kosher, many are. You may wish to speak to your rav regarding hashgachos of these items. They have a nice variety of products to substitute the gluten options. Lots of luck in your gluten-free struggle.

A good idea is a good break from the nosh is to help them write down a aisle for a while. Healthy Snacks This can sometimes be a huge struggle for parents. There are many schools that encourage eating healthy snacks, and actually have it as a school rule, like no “shehakol nosh,” which is extremely appreciated and gives the children a chance to recuperate from the summer “junk food syndrome.” Whether your children’s school have this rule or not, you as a parent have a very big influence on what your child should snack on, both during school and at home. 7 Tips to Encourage Your Children to Eat Healthy Snacks #1 You have the control to decide which foods to buy.

Only discuss with them about eating healthy and the benefits that come along with it. Let him know that protein foods will build him strong bones, and get him to ride his bike like a pro. For a girl, letting her know that healthy fats will give shine to her hair

and skin will help motivate her to make healthy eating choices.

#4 Start them young. Food preferences are developed very early in life. Likes and dislikes begin forming even from when children are babies. You may sometimes need to serve a food several times for a child to accept it. It’s worth trying again and again, but never force a child to eat or make them clean off their plates when they’re not up to it. It can have severe effects later in life, like anorexia, bulimia or any eating disorder.

Many studies show that if food is used as a reward to show affection, children may start using food to cope with stress and other emotions. Offer praise, love, and attention instead. #5 Do not reward with food.

#6 Make it exciting. Sending along snacks like cut-up veggies in small cute containers makes it very pleasing and special. Both kids and adults feel more drawn to snacks like cucumbers and chummus that are packed in individual containers rather than placing these same foods in a piece of foil. #7 The following is a “healthy snack list” that can easily be sent along with a child to school: •

Popcorn

Dried fruits

Vegetable chips

Potato poppers

Chips without trans fat

Unsweetened applesauce

Almonds, seeds, raisins, pistachios, etc.

Rice cakes with cream cheese

Homemade mezonos muffins or cake baked with xylitol, spelt, and whole wheat flour

Hard boiled sliced eggs

String / mozzarella cheese

Spelt/Whole wheat pretzels

Spelt or whole wheat crackers

Celery filled with farmer cheese and topped with olives

Cut up fruits, melons, grapes, or cherries

Slices of cucumbers, baby carrots, peppers with chummus or other dips

Edamame beans (comes in small packets in freezer aisle)

Be creative! Add your own list of healthy snacks and get your child involved to make it exciting. They may have some great ideas too.

Chaya’s Story: It was the end of the month, Regina’s day. The month ran by so fast, the landmarks rushing by in a roadside blur. The store, the shidduch, the children, their neglect — all the deeds that make up the day were so tightly packed that I went from leisurely stroll, to trot, to a heart-lurching gallop. If I could turn back time, I wouldn’t repeat things. I would just sprinkle in an appreciation for the simplicity my life has been, when all I had to do was put food on the table and notice the children. But whom am I fooling? The concerns, the reins that pull us back by demanding more, are always there. But I could sprinkle appreciation today. Even though today seems so insurmountable, so challenging, certainly not holding the blessing of simplicity that my nostalgia evokes.

“Chaya,” he said, even though he saw that I was still busy with Giveret Raz, who thankfully was on her last step of the purchasing journey, only requiring that last human encounter where I told her, “Use it in good health. You’ll craft something beautiful out of this piece of fabric. You made a very elegant choice.”

How much did I earn from turning up the heat on my life? What was it worth?

“Share,” I said, and started cutting the bread into thin slices, so that I could give him my full attention, as only distraction could do.

The key slid through my sweaty fingers and sang as it bounced on the floor. I bent down to retrieve it, feeling along the floor for it. My hands came up dusty and black. I hadn’t washed the floor in almost a week, a most uncomfortable situation when the room was shared by so many souls. The walls, too, unflinchingly showcased their neglect. There was a knock on my door. I straightened up and brushed off my knees. A customer, Giveret Raz, a Sephardi neighbor I barely knew because I’d never taken the time to see her as a friend,

What Can a Mother Do?

they resolve disagreements?

A parent who believes that her child is being negatively affected by her class may feel powerless to intervene. She may feel that because she is removed from the situation she can’t change it. This is far from the truth.

And most importantly, how is your child suffering and why? How is she reacting or responding?

Be a Detective Before attempting to intervene, being removed from the scene does necessitate some good detective work. A mother needs to make sure that she has a good idea of what’s going on. What’s the group’s breakdown? Who sets the tone? Who is friends with whom? Is there someone who’s manipulating or bullying others? Listening to the child is crucial. Often, when we take the time to focus on our children and don’t interrupt with judgment or advice, we learn a tremendous amount. Another great way to play detective is to bring the group home. Birthday parties, shalosh seudos, projects, and play dates all provide valuable insights about what’s happening. An observant parent can learn much from listening and keeping an eye. Do the girls make an effort to include others, or are girls being left out? Purposely or inadvertently? Do they speak kindly or rudely? Do they disagree or argue often? How do

Elegant YOM TOV cakes

Pink Rosemary Cake

At the end of every summer, I find it intensely challenging to transition into Yom Tov “prep” mode. I don’t know if it’s the lazy days of summer or just the initial overwhelming feeling towards the tasks that must be completed before Rosh Hashanah. I always find it helpful to take a pad of paper and create a to-do list as well as a basic menu sketch for the Yomim Tovim ahead. Then I like to start stocking my freezer with challah, meats, and desserts – all of which freeze really well. The cakes I present to you this week freeze beautifully. They are festive, elegant, and taste truly special! Make them this week, freeze, and enjoy serving them on upcoming Yomim Tovim in all their glory! (Make sure to read all of the seasoned chef tips before baking your cake…)

Lemon Cake

Wishing you a stress-free Erev Yom Tov and a ! ‫כתיבה וחתימה טובה‬ Miriam

To freeze these cakes so that they remain fresh, place a cookie sheet over the top of the cake and put pieces of tape around its perimeter to keep it in place. Carefully slide the covered cake into a garbage bag and tie it well. Tape on a large piece of paper and clearly label the bag.

Lemon

There’s something so fresh and bright about lemon desserts. This one is especially light and spongy and has a perfect lemon flavor, making it worthy to be served at a special occasion!

Cake

Light Cake 6 eggs, separated 1 cup sugar 1 Tbsp. vanilla sugar 1 Tbsp. oil 1 Tbsp. orange juice ¾ cup flour ½ tsp. baking powder Dark Cake 6 eggs, separated 1 cup sugar 1 Tbsp. vanilla sugar 1 Tbsp. oil 1 Tbsp. orange juice ¾ cup flour ½ tsp. baking powder 1 ½ Tbsp. cocoa 1 Tbsp. coffee, dissolved Lemon Cream 1 ¼ 16-oz. whip 1 Baker’s Choice lemon cream 3-4 bars parve Rosemarie chocolate, curled

To make chocolate curls, use a wide vegetable peeler and scrape the blade against the thin, flat side of the chocolate in a downward motion. The secret to making pretty chocolate curls is using chocolate at room temperature. If your chocolate is too cold - causing the curls to break, leave the chocolate on your counter for a few minutes until it comes to room temperature. If it’s too warm and melts in your hands, place in your fridge for just 3-4 minutes until it’s a bit more firm and workable. Place curls in the freezer for a few minutes before garnishing your cake.

54

Light Cake: Preheat oven to 350°. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. Make a firm snow with the egg whites and 1 cup sugar. Very gently, fold in the rest of the ingredients and pour onto prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 22 minutes. Allow cake to cool and then freeze. Dark Cake: Follow the same instructions as the light cake, however, add the cocoa and dissolved coffee before the flour. When the cake is frozen, carefully peel the parchment paper off and put a fresh piece of parchment in its place. This cake will be your bottom cake. Lemon Cream: Beat the whip until fluffy and stiff and then fold in the lemon cream. Divide in two. To Assemble: Smear one part of the lemon cream on the dark cake. By holding onto the parchment paper that’s still on the light cake, flip it onto the first layer of lemon cream. Smear the second part of the cream on the light cake. Top generously with chocolate curls.

There’s no better way to end a meal than with a rich, decadent dessert. This three-layer cake features a light, spongy bottom, silky chocolate middle, and fluffy strawberry whip on top. A showstopper of a dessert! For a special Sukkos treat, put a tray of cut-up pink cake and lemon cake in the Sukkah for all to enjoy!

Bottom Cake Preheat oven to 350°. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Make a firm snow with the egg whites and 1 cup sugar. Very gently, fold in the rest of the ingredients and pour onto prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 25 minutes. Allow cake to cool and then freeze for an hour. When the cake is frozen, carefully peel the parchment paper off and put a fresh piece of parchment in its place. Middle Layer Melt the baking chocolate, rosemarie and margarine in a double boiler. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the eggs with the sugars for 2 minutes. Pour in the melted chocolate mixture and filberts (if using), and mix gently. Pour this batter onto the bottom cake and bake for 22 minutes. The chocolate layer will be quite puddingy; this is the way it should be. It’ll become more firm as it cools. Allow cake to cool completely. Pink cream Beat the whip until fluffy and stiff, and then fold in the vanilla sugar and jello. Smear evenly on top of the chocolate layer.

It is easiest and prettiest if you slice these cakes when they’re still frozen. Slice the cake and place on trays. Then, allow the cake to defrost completely before serving.

This week’s spotlight is on

AUTUMN HARVEST GOLDEN DELICIOUS DAYS What’s the sweet upside of summer coming to a close? The fact that apple picking season is about to begin. Starting around now and continuing through late October, orchards throughout the Tri-State Area offer families the chance to pick their own apples. Some also host exciting kids’ attractions, like hayrides, petting zoos, bounce houses and mazes. Here, we’ve rounded up eight places to pick your own apples that are an hour (or less!) from Monsey. Before you go, make sure you call ahead to confirm hours, attractions and availability, since those change constantly throughout the season. There’s just something special about walking down aisles of trees with the scent of fresh, crisp apples and dried autumn leaves blowing in the wind. We hope this article proves to be a helpful resource and inspires you to head out for a funfilled and memorable family apple picking day. Note: The first three farms featured here are farther away, and offer a bigger, more wide-ranging experience. The other farms are closer to Monsey, and are generally smaller operations.

$14 +

Och’s Orchard offers the proper pick-yourown experience; they offer way more than apples! From week to week, their produce calendar changes to showcase the season’s freshest, juiciest fruits and vegetables. The fields are vast, and almost never crowded.

LAWRENCE ORCHARDS AND FARM 42 miles away, or a 1-hour drive.

You can choose either a small bag (quarter bushel, or about 11-12 lb.) for $14.00, or a larger one (half a bushel, or 22-24 lb.) for $27.00. Wagons are available for rent and is highly recommended: apples are heavy! You can also rent a grabber, for $3.00 plus a $5.00 security. The grabber is well worth it, since the best apples are at the top branches.

Also, near the farmer’s market, you can enjoy a pick-your-own flower garden. Children love assembling their own bouquets, and the profusion of vividly colored butterflies that flit over the field makes the experience a magical one.

306 Frozen Ridge Road, Newburgh, NY 12550 908-879-7189

Lawrence Farms Orchards is a wonderful destination for a day trip, especially if you are accompanied by young children. The sprawling farm has spectacular views over the Hudson Valley. Throughout the changing, growing season, they always offer an impressive variety of produce. During this late summer/ early autumn season, for example, besides for the standard farm offerings, they have the plumpest, juiciest grapes- a novel picking experience! A recent addition to the farm is the “Little Village”a children’s play area that is reminiscent of an old-fashioned New England farm town. The charming kid-sized village includes a jail, one-room schoolhouse, fire station, post office, etc.

There is a small petting zoo on site, as well as a swanpopulated lake. Other exciting activities at the farm include a train ride and a hay bale maze. They also sell Cholov Yisroel ice cream (although it’s a tad overpriced). Admission is $3.00 per person (children under 2 free). Admission does not include train ride or maze. Also, produce is weighed and priced separately. The farm charges a minimal fee for wagon rentals, and also for the cardboard fruit baskets. Open: 9am - 4pm; Monday-Sunday

• Texture, not color, is the most accurate indicator of an apple’s ripeness. Select crisp, firm, bruise-free fruit.

• If possible, ask the farmer which variety is ripe. He will know because it is calculated from the number of days since the trees flowered.

• Picking apples directly from a tree is easy. Roll the apple upwards off the branch and give a little twist; don’t pull straight away from the tree. Don’t shake the trees or branches.

• As you pick, try to leave the stem on the apples; they will store longer.

• Apples ripen ten times faster at room temperature than if they are refrigerated.

• Don’t wash apples until just before using to prevent spoilage.

• You know the saying “One bad apple spoils the whole

bunch?” It’s actually true. A bad apple gives off ethylene, which will spoil the other apples around it. So remove bruised fruits and eat them first. Potatoes also release ethylene, so never store apples and potatoes in close proximity of each other.

KIDS’ SERIAL

KIDS’ SERIAL Babby Malka, who grew up in the city, did not know anything about gardening. She also refused to go anywhere near the cow. This caused her to be unpopular with her sisters-in-law and the other village women, who thought her a spoiled, stuck-up city girl. In addition, in the village it was important to whitewash the walls each spring, as the walls got black from the oven over the winter. This too, Babby Malka could not do.

GLANCE AT THE PAST

Family Life in the Hungarian Village Selisht in the 1930’s A Sequel to

Esther

Esther treasured the tablecloth and planned to eventually gift it to her daughter. Sadly, the war, which changed so much of how families lived, disrupted this beautiful mother-daughter connection.

The village Selisht, which lies at the Hungarian-Romanian border, housed approximately 75 Jewish families and about 1,200 non-Jews. Like in most shtetles, the Jewish houses were built along the main street, and the gentiles lived in the fields where they farmed potatoes, beans and vegetables, and raised livestock. The village boasted one beautiful shul with a large yard. In addition, there were a few small grocery stores, two watermills, two butchers, a shoe repairman, two tailors, one tavern, two covered horse and wagons with drivers who served as taxis, two public schools and one Talmud Torah. Once a week a doctor would come to visit, and once a week a bus passed the main street and went to the nearest town, Siget. Other than the bus, only horses and wagons rode on the streets. The roads were made of hard mud, which felt cool in the summer to the barefooted children. Years later, the roads were paved and the pavement became too hot from the summer sun, so the children stopped running around barefoot. All village women kept a garden for vegetables and planted fruit trees for fruits. Families that were able to afford a cow or a goat had milk, butter and cheese. Most families raised chickens for eggs and meat. Village women worked their gardens every morning throughout the spring and summer, and spent a great deal of time in the late summer and fall preserving the fruits and vegetables. The fruits were cooked into jams, and the vegetables were pickled, as provisions for the coming winter months.

78

/ T HE MONS E Y V IE W

The women spent much time on embroidery. Young girls worked for years to embroider the bed linens and tablecloths they would use when they got married. These linens were treasured and cared for carefully and often passed down from mother to daughter to granddaughter with love. In fact, when Esther got married, she received a Pesach tablecloth that Babby Malka had embroidered as a girl and had given to her daughter, Mameshe, as a gift when she moved away from Selisht.

For washing, there was one solution that cleaned everything. Behind the oven, used for cooking and for keeping the homes warm during the cold winter months, there was a little box that caught the ash. The ash was cooked with water and then strained. The water was used for scrubbing floor tiles, for washing dishes and glassware and for cleaning windows. Everything gleamed and sparkled after it was washed. The water was also used to wash the white laundry. In those prepamper days, included in white laundry were the baby’s diapers, which every balabusta scrubbed until it was spanking white before she used it again. For other laundry, a piece of soap bought for 10 lei was added to the water, and soap for bathing was also bought in the gevelb. Many families lived three generations together. When a daughter got married, she often stayed to live in her parents’ home. Children grew up surrounded by the love of grandparents, and young parents of many little children had a lot of family support. In addition, extended families often built their homes on the same property. When Mamashe’s sister got married, she lived in a little house right near Babby Malka. She was very much a part of the household, doing all her cooking and laundry alongside Babby and Mamashe. She was a significant part of Esther’s life as she grew up, and Esther always remembered her lovingly. Yet, this set-up of families living very closely together created the concept of a Shvigger. Because everyone lived together and saw each other all the time, daughters-in-law and sons-in-law often did not measure up to the parents-in-law expectations, creating stress in the in-law relationship. Another serious difficulty which many shtetl families faced was coming up with a naden for their daughters. Parents with many daughters lived under tremendous pressure to scrape together money so that their daughters could get married. Poor families watched their beautiful daughters grow old and remain at home, all for lack of money.

When a girl was getting married, there was hardly any spending involved. The linens and tablecloths and bedding were embroidered and prepared years in advance. The wedding took place in the parents’ home with extra tables and benches from the shul set up in the house and yard. All the neighbors and family members helped cook the meal and serve it. The kallah’s dress was often an heirloom which her mother had worn on her wedding day. And the sisters of the bride and the Macheteneste wore aprons over their Shabbos clothes, as they were hosting the event and serving the guests! The only spending was for a new dress or two for the bride. There was no fabric store in Selisht, so mothers would travel to the nearby town to buy some fabric to sew the kallah’s new “wardrobe.” A family who couldn’t afford the trip into town would often ask someone else making the trip to town to buy the fabric for them, thus saving the bus fare.

KIDS’ SERIAL

KIDS’ SERIAL

Children grew up knowing that they must respect their elders. Even at school, where there were non-Jewish children too, the children were always respectful. In Esther’s class there were 60 children, and the teacher was an old gentile. Still, there were never any discipline problems. Children were taught from a young age to behave respectfully toward anyone older than themselves.

Mostly, shtetl people were happy with what they had. They did not need fancy houses, furniture or clothing, and they made do with the food they planted and cooked. Meals were lovingly planned and prepared and served. Families ate at least two meals together each day, with each meal being a family event in which the entire household sat around the table together. Children appreciated their mother’s cooking. In fact, Esther claims there were no picky eaters. The shtetl life continued in the same rhythm for many generations. Most people assumed it would be thus until Moshiach’s day. Sadly, the terrible war disrupted this way of life. The closeness that families enjoyed in the shtetl could never be replicated in New York. Miraculously, Esther survived the war, married a Talmud Chachum and raised a Torah-true family first in Eretz Yisroel and then in Brooklyn. Still, she always remembered her early childhood shtetl days fondly.

TIPS

KEEPING

SUEDE SHOES LOOKING NEW Stains on suede can be difficult to remove, so it’s in your best interests to protect them to keep them looking like new. There’s several ways to protect and clean suede before it becomes permanently stained. FIRST THING FIRST: It’s always a good idea to spray new suede shoes with a suede protection product. It can be found in shoe repair shops and some supermarkets.

Work the suede eraser, which breaks down as you use it, over the stain until it is eliminated. Avoid rubbing vigorously; you could damage the suede.

IF SUEDE SHOES GET WET: Always soak moisture out of the fabric with paper towel or a clean, white towel. Do not dry suede with a hair dryer or other heat source; allow it to dry naturally. Once it is thoroughly dry, restore the nap (the fuzzy texture that easily becomes crusty if exposed to dirt and water) with a brush made exclusively for suede.

TO RESTORE THE NAP: Rub suede gently with a nail file. Suede can also be steamed to restore nap, or cleaned with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Run the toothbrush over any areas where the suede is flat, such as the newly cleaned spot, using gentle, back-andforth motions to lift the nap.

IF SUEDE GETS MUDDY: Use a nail file to remove the dirt. Use delicate strokes. A brush made exclusively for suede can also be used to remove dirt and scuff marks. IF STAINS HAVE DRIED ON SUEDE: Or if it is scuffed, use an eraser to gently clean the area. If stains do not come out, use a bit of white vinegar on a silk cloth to clean. Spot clean any water stains or caked mud with a suede eraser, which is available at shoe or department stores.

84

/ T HE MONS E Y V IE W

TO CLEAN SALT LINES OR MARKS: Use a combination of 1/2 cup cool water and 1/2 cup white vinegar, dampen the corner of a cotton washcloth with the mixture and gently wipe down the salt marks. Allow the suede boots to dry completely in a cool, dark space. Don’t dry the boots with a blow dryer. ALWAYS: Store suede garments in a cool, dry place. Light will fade the color and dampness will cause mildew.


TIPS

Some things are just so annoying, yet so part of life. A run in the tights in one such example; it is never welcome and always occurs when you’re away from another pair. It’s always wise to be prepared beforehand. TRY: Clear nail polish: Dab the polish around the hole or at both ends of the run. Allow to dry for up to 5 minutes. HAIRSPRAY: Hairspray is another quick and easy method to prevent a run in your tights from getting any larger. Spray the area around the hole or run. Let dry; repeat. (Don’t be afraid to be heavy-handed.) Once finished, the hairspray will temporarily stiffen the fibers of your tights. This is a great method to use if you are in a rush, since hairspray dries almost instantly. Desperate measures…

TIPS

There’s nothing like a neat braid to complement your little one’s back-to-school look. When braiding your pre-schooler’s hair, you may want to go with this new twist on the traditional braid.

A PERFECT FISHTAIL BRAID 88

/ THE MONS E Y V IE W

True, it’s very intricate-looking, but you’ll be pleased to see that these fishtail braid instructions are easy to understand and surprised at how quickly you can become an expert by following these five simple steps. 1.

Divide hair into two sections down the

back. 2. Take a small outer piece of one of the two sections of your hair (it doesn’t matter which section you start with). Cross the small piece over and add it to the inside of the other section. This piece you have crossed will now become a part of the other section. Keep your crossed piece tight or hair may start to come out once you’ve finished braiding. 3. Now you’re going to make the exact same cross but this time you will use the other section of hair. So, once again take a small piece from the outer part of the section and cross it over to the inside of the opposite section. Again, remember to keep it tight. 4. Continue crossing small outer pieces over to the inside of the opposing section. The smaller the pieces you cross, the better the braid will end up. Stop braiding once you feel the sections getting too small. This should be around two or three inches from the bottom of your hair. 5. Once you’ve reached the end of the braid, tie it off with a ponytail holder.


TIPS

MAINTAINING

SHARP UNIFORM SKIRT PLEATS Proper ironing is the key to a pleated skirt that looks as good as the day you brought it home. The first tip for easy ironing begins by the washing. If properly washed, the ironing will go much easier and smoother.

PRESS pleats with iron on the fabrics heat setting; do not ‘iron’ the pleats by moving the iron press down and hold.

Either hand wash or machine wash without spin drying, let it drip dry.

LET COOL! This is the one best tip to pay attention to.

Vinegar is great to use to keep the pleats really crisp and sharp. If vinegar seems unappealing to you, try regular starching. Use anywhere from a 2:1 to 10:1 ratio of water to vinegar. (The strength of the scent of the vinegar will depend on how much you use but the smell will fade quickly.) Pleat up the fabric with pins, paperclips, or bobby pins (whatever works best for you) onto each pleat at the hem to hold them all in place while you press. Spray the water- vinegar solution onto a press cloth) and lay the cloth over the pleats.

/ T HE MONS E Y V IE W

HINTS: · You may get away with ironing every so often, if you apply step #2 before drying a washed pleated skirt. Pleat up fabric with pins etc. and hang to dry like that. · Have you ever tried a flat hair iron as a touch-up iron? No time to drag out your iron and ironing board? A straightening iron works perfectly between buttons where a regular iron doesn’t fit, and it will smooth collar creases and minor wrinkles. So you can look perfectly pressed when you’re pressed for time.


TIPS

You’re doing homework or studying for a test, when suddenly water spills all over your notes. Don’t panic. It’s not all lost. The most important thing, upon which everything else hinges, is get the book frozen A.S.A.P. Once the book dries out, the wrinkles and warping are set, and there’s nothing to do about it. But freeze it, and all damage stops. And the book can stay frozen, until you’re ready to handle it. The recovery process is fairly simple: Wrap the book in a U of wax or freezer paper, or in a plastic bag. It’s best to freeze it at -15 degrees Fahrenheit or lower, so if you can get access to a commercial freezer space, it would be a good idea. If that’s not available, a home freezer will do in a pinch, but the results won’t be quite as good. If possible, freeze the book spine down, and supported so it won’t lean or fall over. If you have to lay it on its side, make sure that the book is fully and flatly supported. If you have anything under it smaller than the book, the book can and will mold itself around that object.

Safety 101: Transitioning Our Kids Safely from Summer to School

By: Sandy Eller

TH E MON S EY V I EW /

SAFETY 101

As the Monsey community continues to grow, there are, Baruch Hashem, thousands of children being bused daily to our many mosdos. The importance of bus safety cannot be overstated, according to Motty Englander, transportation coordinator at the United Talmudical Academy. First and foremost, be considerate and have your children at their designated pickup location at the scheduled time in order to prevent traffic jams. Never allow your child to wait alone at a stop other than his own, because children who are nervous about being picked up can often dart into the road to make sure that the driver stops for them, an action that can have devastating consequences. While buses run on the same daily schedule, issues can often arise that may have an impact on timing. What to do when your child’s bus is late? Understand that inevitable delays occur and stay relaxed.

BUSING

“Until ten minutes late is normal,” Mr. Englander told The Monsey View. “So if it’s less than that, don’t call. It places a big strain on the dispatcher when suddenly all the mothers call at once.”

The safety of every single child being transported to school is of paramount importance, and Mr. Englander urges parents not to shift into panic mode if their child doesn’t get off the bus as expected.

It can be helpful to take a phone with you to the bus stop in case a bus is abnormally late and you will need to contact the dispatcher. “Often exactly when you go inside to make the call, the bus will arrive, causing you to miss the very bus you have been waiting for,” explained Mr. Englander.

Never assume that if your bus was late one day because of heavy construction that it will be late the following day, as well.

Don’t make private arrangements for house stops with drivers, because when a substitute takes over the route, your child won’t get picked up. Changes in stops are particularly difficult to arrange, especially in big schools, and are best avoided whenever possible. Be aware that dispatchers are extremely busy, often handling multiple inquiries simultaneously, making it impossible for them to answer additional calls. The safety of every single child being transported to

school is of paramount importance, and Mr. Englander urges parents not to shift into panic mode if their child doesn’t get off the bus as expected. “In all my years of managing the transportation in a big mosod like UTA, there never was a time when a child just disappeared,” observed Mr. Englander. “If you don’t know where your child is, don’t get nervous. The dispatcher can check if he went onto the wrong bus. It could be there was a substitute rebbe, teacher or driver, or that the child was overlooked. When the buses empty out, the child will inevitably be found.” Proper conduct is expected at all ages on school buses so that the driver can focus on his main goal: safely transporting his precious cargo from home to school and back again. “A driver’s job is not to be mechanech, rebbe or teacher or to settle problems,” said Mr. Englander. It is crucial for parents to educate their children on proper bus behavior and a child who puts himself or others in danger may be denied bus privileges. Children should also be instructed to exercise extreme caution in ice and snow conditions, including waiting until the bus comes to a complete stop before moving towards the bus, although it is recommended that parents wait outside with their children when ice and snow are present. No matter what the weather conditions are, children should always wait for a signal from the driver to board the bus, particularly when crossing streets. “Parents, teach your children, especially on major roads like West Central, Route 306, and Old Nyack Turnpike about safety when boarding buses,” urged Mr. Englander. “For the safety of our dear children, make sure they know and practice the rules and laws of boarding a school bus. Don’t be smart, be safe. We often think it is smart to make our lives easier and do what’s convenient, but never when it comes at the expense of safety.”

As the old saying goes, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” and nowhere is that adage more applicable then when it comes to controlling lice in our schools.

As a 20-year veteran checking heads in both Skver and Satmar girls’ schools, Mrs. Rubin has become an expert on the subject of those dreaded, unwanted visitors. Her go-to method for killing lice? Pantene hair conditioner, rubbed onto dry hair. Mrs. Rubin saturates the entire head with conditioner and massages well before combing out the entire head, section by section, as close to the scalp as possible, using either the Assy 2000 or the Nisska comb, dipped in rubbing alcohol. It should take over an hour to complete the process which should be followed with a shampoo and full dry, before doing another visual check to ensure that no lice or nits remain.

It is definitely a timeconsuming process, but remember, if one nit stays, in a week it can become a zoo again.

“It is definitely a timeconsuming process, but remember, if one nit stays, in a week it can become a zoo again,” cautioned Mrs. Rubin.

To further guard against future occurrences of lice or nits, Mrs. Rubin recommends washing hairbrushes with hot water and bleach and spritzing hair daily with a mixture of water and vinegar.

Several professionals in the area specialize in treating those with lice and/or nits including S. Bluming 3563892 and M. Lauber 356-0058 in Monsey and D. Kohl 362-0297 and Z. Braun 354-5134 in New Square. / THE MONS E Y V IE W

Hatzolah Member: Children of all ages need to be taught how to avoid foods and items that are potential triggers. Be open with the school staff, including both the administration and those who interact with your child on a daily basis, and let them know what your child is allergic to, the signs and symptoms of a reaction and what needs to be done to treat the reaction. Any parent who has a child that uses an inhaler should make sure that they take it to school daily and that it is administered on schedule by either the teacher or the child, if they are old enough to do so on their own.

MV: What precautions should parents of diabetic children take when sending them off to school? HM: Diabetes generally does not turn into an emergency situation. Since living with diabetes is such an integral part of their daily lives, children are typically very well trained at managing the disease. MV: What special steps should be taken for children who experience seizures? HM: The school staff must be warned and teachers have to be informed in order to make sure that a child who is having a seizure doesn’t hurt himself. We have seen numerous cases where a child had a seizure and the teacher, who was not aware of the condition, panicked and failed to take control of the situation. Parents need to keep their children’s teachers informed of any medical condition to ensure both the safety and the dignity of their child.


Miri

"Such a long list of supplies to get for school! When could we go shopping mommy?"

The next day, when they went to the store, Miri and her sisters found some of the supplies they needed.

They went to the next store, but were still missing some items. Miri's mother was already getting dizzy from all the shopping.

"No, but I still need to get‌." "I'm still missing a‌." they started complaining. However, when they glanced at their tired mother and realized how much time she spent already, they complied and headed for the exit.

"I'm missing a 75 page spiral." "I'm missing a 3 inch looseleaf." "I still need to get a 3 pronged folder."

"Let's go home. We've done enough shopping for today."

In school, Miri's teacher told the class the supplies they need for the year. She couldn't believe it when she heard that the item she didn't find was actually not on the teacher's list.

ENSURING THAT YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR HOME APPRAISALS You’ve found your dream home. The asking price is $420,000 - an amount you’ve already been preapproved for by your bank. But is the home really worth that amount? That’s the question at the heart of the home appraisal. The worth, or value of the property, will determine how much a lender is willing to give you to buy that particular piece of real estate. A home appraisal will determine if the asking price is lower or higher than the actual value of the property. This all-important step in getting the financing you need is the home appraisal an oftentimes confusing part of the mortgage process in which both buyer and seller must depend on the expert opinion of a stranger. A real estate appraisal is simply that - the expert opinion of a certified, state-licensed professional who determines the value of a piece of property. If your $420,000 dream home is really worth only $320,000, then the home is overpriced.

It protects a decision that is often you from paying too much for a house emotional for the buyer. simply because it was love at first sight. A home appraisal is not the same thing as an inspection. If you’re buying a home, you’ll want to hire an experienced home inspector to point out any potential problems that could turn into costly nightmares in the future. Property appraisers will likely make note of any obvious issues, but they won’t test your heat and air, check the chimney, or determine if your plumbing is up to code. That’s the job of the inspector. What are the methods appraisers use to value property and what’s included in the appraisal report? What are some common myths? For example, will dirty dishes in the sink affect your home appraisal? What about a wet

When you apply for a mortgage, your lender typically requires the property to be appraised by one of their approved appraisers. This practice helps create more consistent appraisals and gives you assurance that the appraiser is properly licensed and certified. Even though the home appraisal is the lender’s requirement, it’s the borrower’s responsibility. You usually pay for it soon after application and it is a part of the closing costs. The cost is typically around $400 but can be more depending on the price of the property. There are two primary appraisal methods for residential property. In the sales comparison approach,

the appraiser compares the property with three or four similar homes that have sold in the area, often called comparables, or comps. The analysis considers specific components, such as lot size, square footage of finished and unfinished space, style and age of house, as well as other features such as garages and fireplaces. The cost approach is used more for new property and is based on reproduction costs. The appraiser estimates the cost to replace the structure on the property if it was destroyed. The appraiser then looks at land value and depreciation to determine the property’s worth. The appraiser gathers information for the appraisal report from a number of sources, but the process often begins with a physical inspection of the property inside and out. Additionally, the appraiser may look at county courthouse records and recent reports from the local real estate multiple listing service.

The appraisal report generally includes: •

an explanation of how the appraiser determined the value of the property

the size and condition of the house and other permanent fixtures, along with a description of any improvements that have been made and the materials used

statements regarding serious structural problems, such as wet basements and cracked foundations

notes about the surrounding area, such as new or established development, rural acreage, and so on

an evaluation of recent market trends of the area that may affect the value

a comparative market analysis that supports the appraisal

maps, photographs and sketches

A common misunderstanding is that the appraisal amount is only for the house itself. In fact, the figure appraises the total value of the home and any other permanent structures, along with the land that the house is built on. This appraisal figure also determines the loan amount you can get to buy the property. If a home appraises for less than purchase price this can cause a problem with your mortgage qualification and approval. If that happens, it should trigger a discussion with your attorney and realtor. A home appraisal is more than just another cost added to the buyer’s bottom line. It’s a protection for everyone involved in the home-buying process. It will help you make a more informed decision about purchasing a home.
