The Monsey View

Dear Editor, Thank you so much for your amazing work! We really look forward to The Monsey View each week. This past Friday we went to Abma’s Farm that was featured in Excursions. We were surprised to see that it was full of heimishe people. When we asked the people around us how they knew of this place, they all said, “We saw it in The Monsey View.” Everyone was discussing the great work you do! We really look forward to more interesting, local places to visit on the long Friday afternoons! ~ Family Wertzberger P.S. The recipes are great! We made the fruit soup and the pizza; they were delicious!

Dear Editor, Thank you, Monsey View, for your magazine -a wonderful addition to our town! I can vouch for the article you featured a few weeks back about Vermont Menucha Vacations. We were recently lucky guests of Vermont Menucha and saw for ourselves that it really is “a jewel of nature.” The location boasts a breathtaking view of majestic mountains that leaves one in awe. The air is fresh and alive. It truly is a place to relax and refresh and is aptly named Vermont “Menucha.” Additionally, we loved the many attractions nearby, an adventure park just a 3-minute walk away, waterfalls, ATVing, alpine

‫פרשת ראה‬

sliding, hiking, biking, museums, and much more in the area! There was not nearly enough time to do it all. Thank you Vermont Menucha for making this vacation available to the heimishe olam: minyanim, swimming pool, trip planner, beautiful accommodations and friendly, welcoming atmosphere. And thank you to the Monsey View for giving us information on great places for our community. Gratefully, ~A Monsey Resident To Whom It May Concern, I received your publication in my grocery order. It is really striking and the advertisements are beautiful. B”H, there are no pictures that shouldn’t enter a Yiddishe home. I’m sure you didn’t realize that some of the letters to the editor contain loshon hora and can cause a chillul Hashem, ch”v. I do agree that we all need awareness in many areas. But there is a Yiddishe way to do it. By venting our frustration and letting everyone know our opinion we will not accomplish much. Maybe the important messages can be relayed baderech kavod to encourage people to be more careful about what’s bothering them. I wish you much bracha v’hatzlacha, and may your publication enhance Monsey b’ruchnius uv’gashmius. Sincerely, ~Mrs. Stern

Private Property Becomes Public Domain

I would like to open a discussion about an important issue concerning our community. As I am on the lookout to purchase a home, I watch the housing market closely. In doing so, I came to the realization that our community is at the verge of catastrophe. The purchase prices for condos already reached over $800,000$900,000, thus raising the prices to purchase houses in Monsey and surrounding area at alarming speed. The high prices to purchase houses, as the buyers need to pay their expensive mortgages, then leads to skyrocketing rent prices, which renters can barely afford to pay. In addition to the high standard cost of living going up year by year, with cost of tuition, clothing, and grocery all on the rise, people will simply break down financially. Most of us are aware of the housing crisis in Brooklyn, which brings many Brooklyn residents to Monsey every year. I feel that Monsey, too, will soon have a crisis where rent and home purchase prices will be unbearable. Something needs to be done about this. I am appealing to Askanim and Rabbanim to do something about it, the earlier the better.

Thanks, ~ A concerned Monsey resident

/ THE MO NS E Y V IE W

Thank you for providing us with this forum, where we can respectfully voice our concerns.  I read with interest the letter you printed last week of the woman whose property was ‘visited’ by a class of boys. I can relate to this upsetting scenario very well. I live on the corner of a main road, and for some reason people of all ages feel the need to cut through our lawn, walk very close by the house, and continue on to our walkway.  For what?  It saves them about three steps that they would have made if they would walk until the end of the sidewalk and turn the corner there.  This is not a shortcut that runs between two streets. Actually, it’s not a shortcut at all. It’s just a diagonal walk through our lawn. I value the little privacy that I do still have, and it gets violated on a regular basis. This is very distressing to me. I sometimes feel as if my personal space is being invaded. We could be eating our shabbos seuda, singing, playing, or just doing homework, and suddenly there is someone passing by right under the window!  If it would be only children I could try to justify this behavior due to their young age.  But when it is also adults,

it reflects a serious lack of respect that is upsetting and quite frankly very sad. I would like to be dan lekaf zechus and say that it could be that because I live in an area that has predominantly multi-family homes, and some people don’t realize that not every property is a commonly shared space. If so, the responsibility lies with the parents to teach and instill their children (and themselves) to have respect for another person’s space. I hope that this letter will create an awareness of this phenomenon, and increase the respect we should have for each other in all areas. Thank you again for giving us a ‘voice.’  May you have continued hatzlocha! Sincerely,

Toby gave her son a hug, as her heart sank. They could barely afford milk and bread. Last week, the store owner had told her that she could no longer make any purchases on account, as the balance was too great, and she needed to pay in cash. How was she going to afford treats for her

Toby tossed and turned, trying to find a solution. How could they go on living like this? Toby felt so very, very alone.

The next day, her son Shmulie came home brimming with pride. “Mommy,” her son yelled, “Guess what, guess what?” A naturally sunny child, his light seemed to have dimmed over the last year of chaos and confusion. Toby was so happy to see him smiling! “What is it, sweetheart?” she said. “I was picked to bring in a special treat for my whole class for our Oneg Shabbos

son’s entire class? Every dollar counted. Every dollar she didn’t have. Tears dripped down her face as she hugged her son. “It isn’t fair,” she thought angrily, “It isn’t fair that we are suffering so much and now I can’t even give this pure, special boy a little bit of happiness. Hashem, please help! Send us a heavenly messenger. I’m trying so hard. But I just can’t do it anymore. I can’t do it alone.” The next day, Toby trudged to the

hOw iT BEgan

grocery after work, with four kids in tow. She hated this weekly expedition. The shame she carried as she carefully picked each item and tallied up the total. She had forty dollars. That was it! She needed to make Shabbos. And she could do it. She’d done it before. But what about the treats? She looked at her son’s hopeful eyes as he perused the nosh. She couldn’t deny him, she decided, she just couldn’t. While her face was burning with shame, her back was iron-rod with determination. Her son needed this. If the store owner insisted, she would have to take away one of her shabbos staples. But she would at least try to buy it all. Standing in line, her heart was pounding. Her children were talking to her, but she couldn’t hear a word. She was praying. “Hashem, please, see this sweet boy before you. Allow him to have some happiness. Allow us to serve you as best as we can.”

It was her turn. Her purchases rang up. $45. That was $5 too much. She handed the cashier $40, and with a shaking voice, asked her to put the remaining $5 on account. Toby held her breath, waiting for her request to be denied. But the cashier nodded, pushed a few buttons and said, “Sure, and just so you know, the balance on your account will then be $130.” Toby was stunned. That couldn’t be right. The cashier must have made a mistake and punched in someone else’s account. She had to speak up. As desperate as she was, she wasn’t going to resort to stealing! “Excuse me,” said Toby, “I think there

A little boy flees, his head down, his cheeks burning with shame. His mother sent him to purchase their week’s groceries, but he was turned away. He had no money. The store couldn’t extend any more kindness. And so, with his dignity in shreds, he fled. In 2004, when Reb Shamshon Krausz witnessed this scene, he decided that no one should have to endure such a humiliating experience and Eizer Lamuzen was born.

Here’s my

“No mistake,” said the cashier cheerfully. “You’re all set. Oh, and there’s a note on the bottom that says you can speak to the manager if you have any questions.” Toby walked away, thrilled but confused. She knew she owed over five hundred dollars. Should she speak to the manager? She was afraid to bring any more attention to herself. What if it was all a big mistake? But Toby was a woman of honor. If there was a mistake, she needed to know. She honored her debts, even if she had no way to pay them! Toby walked up hesitantly to the store manager’s office, timidly knocked on the door and asked, “I had a question about my account?” He looked up the information on his terminal, and smiled. “Yes, I would imagine you would.” And then he gave her the most wonderful news. The words, they were so beautiful. Money. Dignity. Privacy. He explained to her how Eizer Lamuzen works and how her very own neighbors and friends were simply adding $5 to their weekly account to help her and others in need. And how her balance had been mostly paid off already. She would continue to see payments made into her account, but no one but her and her husband would be the wiser! Toby left the store on a high. This wonderful community of loving and caring people were helping her make ends meet. Her son danced home with his bag of treats, his contagious smile lifting her heart. That night, for the first night in a long time, she slept peacefully. For today, her prayers had been answered. She was no longer alone.

Eizer Lamuzen was designed to change the way we give. People suffering from hard times, whether due to an illness, the loss of a family member, or job hardships, shouldn’t have to endure the additional pain of humiliation and shame each time they enter a store. Eizer Lamuzen’s system allows them to nourish their families, while maintaining their dignity and pride.

Each week, Eizer Lamuzen members have $5 added to their grocery orders. This money is accumulated into a main store account and then redistributed to help needy families by placing these funds directly into their personal store accounts. When a recipient of Eizer Lamuzen purchases his items, no one is the wiser. There are no coupons, no codes, and no special cards that a recipient requires. Everything is completed with the utmost sensitivity and care. Eizer Lamuzen is already in operation B"H in Boro Park, Williamsburg, Kiryas Joel and Montreal and staffs a Vaad of Askamim in each community to oversee the entire operation. This administrative board evaluates needy families, determining the amount of each allocation, and ensures that the process is completed smoothly and discreetly. Eizer Lamuzen’s method of charity is unique on many levels. It is private. It is simple. And it also ensures that you are helping people in your very own community, as money that is allocated into a store is always exclusively distributed in the very same establishment. This allows people to see and feel the real difference that they are making in the lives of their neighbors and friends. Now, Eizer Lamuzen is proud to announce its launching in Monsey, your very own community. You too can stop the hunger epidemic and help your neighbors and friends by becoming an Eizer Lamuzen member today!

Garbage Issue Revisited

(Issue #12)

I just want to correct one small detail about the concern that Monsey is turning into a city. I think that in the city people don’t have the opportunity to sit outside and talk that much; it’s the country that lends itself to that type of problem.

We have received letters from readers who were concerned that contestants are using dictionaries to find the boggle words. We trust all submissions are done according to the rules. A dictionary should only be used to confirm a word found on the board and to check for proper spelling before submitting your list.

Grand Ave. in Excursions Issue #12) is 300 W. Grand Ave., Montvale, NJ 07645.

I want to bring to your attention that a large family is not a reason for leaving a mess. On the contrary, it is all the more reason to keep the garbage neat.

We live next to a Chasunah hall and we never had any problems with people coming and going. It’s actually interesting to watch. I think the issue is with your neighborhood and not all of Monsey. Hatzlocha! ~ Family W.

In Jewish life, chinuch (education) is an important focus. Any child over nine years old should be taught to keep the garbage inside and outside of his/her house neat. And when those large families grow up and have families of their own, they need to train their children to keep their neighborhood clean. Otherwise in ten years this problem will be way bigger. Cleanliness is next to G-dliness. ~ Anonymous

VIE W P OINTS

VIE W P OINTS

by Ruthie Glickman

Each year, as late August evening breezes carry a faint chill, it seems almost as though the crickets are heralding the arrival of Chodesh Elul. It is remarkable that all the trappings of the summer, from backyards to bungalows, swimming pools to hiking trails, are penetrated by the gentle, understated call of Elul. In stark contrast to the loud and publicly orchestrated color war breakouts meant to elicit animated reactions, the arrival of Elul is pointed and private, solemnly directed to the hearts and minds of the perceptive. No hype and cheering. All hope and tefilla. The call of the shofar jars Klal Yisroel out of its sleepy, summery mode, urging us out of cruise control to a state of high alert. Yidden, it’s time to take stock of our lives, ponder our positions, and calculate how we intend to reach our destinations.

/ T HE MONS E Y V IE W

Even as we prepare for the awe-inspiring month ahead, we continue to enjoy the summer blessings which Hakadosh Baruch Hu, in His infinite goodness, showered upon us. Yes, it is possible, precisely in the lap of comfort, in recognition of the bounty bestowed from Above, to turn to ‫אבינו שבשמים‬ with ‫תשובה מאהבה‬. Returning to Hakadosh Baruch Hu with hearts overflowing with humility and remorse for our wrongdoing in the year gone by, surrounded with ease and serenity, is not second-rate teshuva. Certainly, tzaddikim and tzidkanios among us represent the nobility whose model of teshuva we can strive to

at this point in our lives, we take heart. There is no benefit in chastising ourselves as we contrast our standing against what we consider ideal. Inasmuch as such comparison serves as an impetus for growth, improvement, and teshuvah, therein lies its value. Hakadosh Baruch Hu is not only our Creator and Omnipotent Ruler, but He is our Loving Father with an intimate awareness of His children’s nisyonos and efforts to overcome them. Every step forward, each small victory - as well as every setback or failure - is known to our Father, as is our trepidation as we embark on a path to teshuva.

Serving Hashem with awareness creates the possibility to rejoice even as we tremble before our Master. emulate. But if we find ourselves falling short of their righteousness and purity

“‫ וגילו ברעדה‬,‫”עבדו את ד‘ ביראה‬ (‫)תהלים ב‘ י”א‬ “Serve Hashem in fear, and rejoice with trembling.” Dovid

Hamelech’s words may appear quite a paradox as he enjoins us to serve Hashem with yirah. While the word is usually translated as fear, it is also defined as awareness. Serving Hashem with awareness creates the possibility to rejoice even as we tremble before our Master. How blessed we are to be the receptacle for Hakadosh Baruch Hu’s eternal goodness and love! How fortunate is Klal Yisroel to receive the gift of Chodesh Elul, to be granted the opportunity to return with our whole hearts to our Heavenly Father, against Whom we have sinned. Our sincere, heartfelt teshuva is never spurned, our tefillos and tzedaka never rejected, and our tears will always unlock Heavely gates. Preparing for the holy month of Elul requires us to delve into our deeds of the past year and make an accounting. We must pay our debts

All hope and tefilla. to the best of our ability, for we have a Heavenly audit to face. We must come forward, not only with words, but with actions which will serve as collateral for the areas where we fall short. There is cause for trepidation. A child was standing along the shore of a vast ocean as he saw a huge ship in the distance. He called out, and waved frantically with a wide circular motion of his outstretched arm, signaling the ocean liner to turn in his direction. An adult standing nearby took pity on the youngster, knowing full well that his wish would not materialize and gently explained, “My child, that powerful ship has a navigator, who is sailing a set course, and will not turn toward you.”

nessed with shock as the ocean liner changed directions, to the child’s glee. The youngster watched the man’s reaction, and explained simply, “You see, the captain of the ship is my father. He promised me that if I stand in the right spot as he approaches, and I signal my request, he’ll fulfill my wishes. With Chodesh Elul upon us, we prepare for the coronation of the King of kings with trembling hearts. We do everything in our power to be found worthy subjects. And we rejoice in the knowledge that the King is our Loving Father.

Is it possible that a child would not like to listen to stories?

Yes!

Can it be that a child that reads age level material fluently, spells adequately, and has sufficient oral vocabulary still fails in school?

Absolutely!

Both of these children may have language processing problem as a result of weak Concept Imagery. Concept Imagery is the ability to quickly create mental pictures for words. This skill is necessary to comprehend both oral and wri„en language. The research based Visualizing and Verbalizing program develops this skill.

BORN TO There’s probably more exciting news exchanged in Blubelle than in any retail venue in Monsey. Every day, bundles of bliss are born to Blubelle, where they share in your simc­ ha like family. The home welcoming of a new baby is a world of joy at Blubelle. The home welcoming of a new baby is a world of joy at Blubelle. As our community is b”H growing and newborn miracles are welcomed into our families, there has become an increasing need for a boutique where mommies and bubbies could outfit their newborns from head to toe.

It’s hard to believe that until recently there was no store in Monsey dedicated exclusively to babies. All that changed with the opening of Blubelle in the Town Square shopping center, the Monsey layette shopping experience was brought to a new level. In this boutiquestyle, attractive shop, the need has been filled. At Blubelle, the primary focus is to pamper your baby. And the pampering doesn’t end at infanthood, as Blubelle now carries upscale children’s wear until size 4, with coordinating options for siblings.

By: Sandy Eller

For owner Chavy Ruttner, Blubelle is more than just a preferred layette shop - it’s about creating the ultimate shopping experience for mommies, bubbies and anyone shopping for a baby.

budget, thereby creating a successful shopping experience for each customer.

Understanding that even experienced mothers can feel overw hel m ed in the days after welcoming their new arrival, the warm, inviting staff makes every customer feel taken care of. Blubelle experts are available to help you assemble a full layette, or just a few fill-in items. Their sales staff takes the extra time to get to know your taste and

Mrs. Ruttner takes personal pride in Blubelle’s unique “shop-at-home” service that’s designed for the comfort and convenience of busy mothers of newborns.

Many customers are surprised to find that they carry everything for baby: from basic undershirts, diapers, and crib sheets, to the most elaborate Kiddush ensembles, bris outfits and accessories. Every bubby and mommy can afford a Blubelle layette.

“Knowing that all it takes is a phone call from the comfort of your bed is priceless,” she says. “Just call Blubelle, and we will take care of the rest. We will guide a new Mommy through her first baby basics, or help an experienced mother fill her entire shopping list! We deliver your order; you pick what you like Every bubby and and return the rest, mommy can afford a Blubelle layette. no questions asked.” In one instance, a customer from Canada contacted the store to put together a complete layette for her two-day-old son.  Blubelle’s experts took on the task with their characteristic patience and care. For several hours, photos were emailed back-and-forth, as Blubelle’s staff dispensed expert advice while displaying utmost care.

the choice ensembles. The customer left soon thereafter with a beautiful layette for the new princess and plenty of time to spare before her flight. This is all part of Blubelle.” Your ultimate gift-shopping destination, Blubelle is a far cry from the typical basement store. Whether it’s a simple stretchy or a Yom Tov outfit, nothing leaves Blubelle in an ordinary plastic bag. Darling little outfits are folded to perfection, wrapped in tissue paper, and lightly misted with perfume, before being expertly giftwrapped and tied with a bow. Mazel Tov! Your new little bundle of joy has just arrived!  Your simcha is boundless, and you can’t wait to swaddle your baby in cozy cottons, velvety stretchies and plush blankets.  You know just where to come.

“From the entire order, only one little jacket came back, and that was because the mother already had the same one at home. “ Because it is a family-run store, unusual requests are often able to be accommodated, as well as after-hour appointments.  “We had a customer who had a flight scheduled for 2 pm to travel to London for a grandchild’s wedding,” recalls Mrs. Ruttner. “She was awoken at 6 AM pre-travel to the joyous news of the arrival of a new baby granddaughter.  By 9 AM, we were in the store, delicately fingering the variety of soft pink ruffles, and selecting

BECOMINGWEIGHSMARTER The No-Time Syndrome: How Is This Connected to Fat-loss?

If you feel overwhelmingly busy and you never have “enough” time, you might think that “someday” on your imaginary eighth day of the week will be the best time to get things done. This imaginary day could be tomorrow or any other time, but in essence it only exists for people who believe they can’t find the time to do what they want to do now. I often tell my clients when they distress about not having enough time for “eating” or “exercising,” the following: You need to decide what your highest value is. For ex: if it’s baking, you will find the time to bake. If it’s shopping you will somehow find yourself in a store. If listening to a particular shiur is important to you, you will somehow get to do that. If your highest value is not health, energy, or loosing fat, then you will find the time for everything else, but for exercising and eating well. Your highest value How can you choose to place your highest value on health? So the obvious Pasuk in the Torah “Venishmartem Meod Lenafshoseichem” is Hashem’s way of telling us: take care of your wellbeing, both physically and emotionally so you can serve Me with joy, clarity, and energy to have the most beautiful and productive life

ever. Why does Hashem have such a burning desire for us to watch over our health? Our bodies are carrying the most precious, priceless gift, our neshama. In order for our neshama to thrive, the vehicle, which is our body, needs to function at its peak. Prioritize your time: We all know how we “function” when we feel heavy, lethargic, schlepped down, not in the mood, or when we are sick. Everything else in your life will be directly affected by the way you feel, including your spouse, children, friends and neighbors. So if you’re

thinking that you have no time to eat, exercise or prepare food; DO YOU HAVE THE TIME TO BE SICK?? DO YOU HAVE THE TIME TO BE WAITING IN THE DOCTOR’S OFFICE FOR TWO HOURS? Everything is ultimately in Hashem’s hands, but He gave us the bechira to choose. You can choose to make the time to “eat properly,” and you can choose to make the time for a workout. So if baking, cooking, cleaning, shopping, learning, being calm with

by Esty Weiss

your kids, spending quality time with your family, is very important to you, then you would make “Health” as one of your highest values, and you will see that you’ll have the time for it. Here are some great tips collected from very successful and productive people that make the “TIME” for what they value most: ~Go to sleep at a decent hour!! We sometimes think we will accomplish more in the darkness of the night, but in reality we accomplish triple the amount when we wake up refreshed in the morning. The best time to actually work out is first thing in the morning, burning the most fat on an empty stomach. The energy it will give you to do other things during the day and all the health benefits for every cell and organ of your body is simply exhilarating.

We grow them with thought, pick them with care, and display them with flair.

~If you feel you need a nap but “choose” to do something else instead, a 20-minute relaxation cd or a weight-loss cd has shown to be as good as a 3-hour power nap ~When it comes to health, energy and weight-loss, taking care of yourself before your spouse and children is paramount. Why? Because if you don’t make time for yourself you might not have the energy to make time for them.

~Make the time to eat; not having time is no excuse. I’ve shown my clients many quick meal ideas, and preparing bulk in advance helps a lot as well. ~ W r i t e down your highest value: “health.” Make a list of 50 or more things that are and will be directly connected to health and wellbeing. This exercise will help you make the time for what you value, because seeing the benefits of what we value will encourage us to make the time for it.

CHOICE! It’s in your power to choose to make time for whatever you value or what’s most important for that time. Points ponder:

to

You will always fi n d excuses for what you don’t believe is too important!

• We all have the same 24 hours in the day. Divide your hours wisely!

• The past does not equal your future!

For example: What does being healthy mean to you? *more energy (so I will get more things done) *clarity *being calmer with kids and grandkids *being more productive at work… After you list 50 or so things, write the following: What does having more energy mean to you? *exercising *accomplishing tasks in less time, freeing up more time to do the things you like: reading your favorite book, preparing your favorite meal, joining courses, etc.

• Living in the present

The choice is yours

Of course, I do understand that some circumstances will call for rest rather that exercise, or eating a piece of cake rather than depriving yourself. Sometimes you will need to sleep later in the morning if your baby kept you up half a night. The difference is YOU make that

My store opened at 7:20 a.m. today. I should post hours, but in the meantime, it’s come-when-you-will. Who sews at that hour? Apparently Chava Stark does, because as I was still in bed, trying to fend off the feelings of yesterday’s failures so I can start my day with a clean slate, there was a knock on my door. Malka, who has taken to davening in the hours not yet inhabited by many, answered the door. She peeked into my room to see if I was awake, and silently motioned for me. Quickly, I slipped into my day clothes and came to the door. Chava Stark was there, her cheeks scrubbed to a shiny pink. “Fabric for a skirt is what I need,” she told me without preamble. Everything in me was still sleepy, and I yawned widely, using one hand for my face and the other to point her to the alcove. She sidestepped a pair of pants and a checkered shirt. Chuna’s.

The rice was still only halfway checked, and I briefly considered cooking only half, but realized that each person would only receive one spoonful of rice, which teases the stomach into even worse pangs. I couldn’t cook them in shifts either, a waste of kerosene. This isn’t working, I told myself silently, shaking my head. The woman finished her purchases and turned to me. A currency exchange ensued. Finally she left. I had been just about holding it together with pinched fingers before the store. Running over to

Chuna kicked the table, and a container of buttons knocked over, spilling all over the floor. “I’m hungry,” he yelled. ALL SHOES ARE DISPLAYED ARRANGED BY SIZE

“Pick those up,” I yelled back, “every single one.” Chuna lay down on the floor and started crying. I froze, the adrenaline still coursing through my body, ready to yell again, but not wanting to. Instead, I went into my bed, buried my eyes into my pillow, and started crying.

And then there was Malka’la, and the beautiful light that had started suffusing her face now. Didn’t she come first, too?

What followed was a frenzy of activity that left me breathless, my left shoulder knotted into a perpetual ache. I also decided to be the adult, soothe my children, push them into routine as much as we could, and provide stability as much as was possible. By night, I was fast asleep before I could even wonder about Duvid - who hadn’t come home even once today - and before I could finish all of my prayers for each of my children. And now, a new day, and it had already started with yesterday’s failures and today’s challenges.

Not too far for a day trip, yet offering a wide range of activities for an extended getaway, Lancaster makes for a well-rounded family destination. It is surreal to drive by Amish Country and see its modestly clad residents leisurely tending to their farms, riding bicycles and scooters, and using buggies as their means of travel. Banks with walk-up entrances, parking for buggies at Target, and stables at the side of homes are a regular sight, one that I couldn’t get enough of when visiting. Gorgeous homes and lawns sans electric wires to mar their aesthetic beauty further enhance the relaxation. It is no wonder that Lancaster, PA, less than three hours from Monsey, is a tourist favorite.

PIXEL IN A POCKET Photography for Life

Upsherin Portraiture | Bar Mitzvah Photography Unlike everyday candid photography, where thrift and creativity are encouraged and even admired, event photography is about capturing a moment that will never be yours again. There is no encore performance for milestone events. Upsherin Portraiture: Studio or Candid? Studio Portraiture captures the mood and expression of the child. Borne of portrait painting, portrait photography can be done anytime, anywhere, and is in high demand for the pre-haircut boy. At times, the whole body or even the background can be included, but emphasis is placed on the face and especially the eyes. Commonly, props - such as a Sefer Torah, a mirror, scissors - are introduced to the picture, a style which is subject to differing opinions. I am in the minority when I say I prefer a portrait session without benefit of any prop at all.

About PICADILLY PICADILLY is a photo shop devoted to the art of photographing and sharing the milestones in life. The joy of working with customers as they celebrate their memories is something we experience every day. The camera captures the moment, and we make it last forever. Photo Prints – Photobooks – Photo Albums – Photo Gifts – Photo Displays – NEW!

Candid Photography is one of the most enjoyed photography sessions, where the child is clueless about the camera or the photographer. The child moves about in his natural elements as the camera captures his movements. Mastering candid photography takes years of practice, which may surprise you, as the best candid shots look so effortless as to be almost random. Candid photography captures all the uniqueness and natural facial expressions and has a very strong emotional impact. If you are traditional in most matters of style and substance, you will be happier with studio portraits for your upsherin boy. For those who are inclined to leap before they look, candid photography is for you. Tip: Spare the dime when it comes to upsherin photography. If your budget does not allow for such expense, do only what you can, but do it well enough in advance of the upsherin day. If it turns out that you are very unhappy with the first round of photos, this gives you enough time to plan for a second set. You won’t ever regret it. Bar Mitzvah Photography: From a designer’s point of view, a Bar Mitzvah is a favorite to work

with. It is a fairly standard celebration, and everybody is in exceptionally good spirits. The Bris and Upsherin have the tears, and the wedding has the fears. Whether you have a family member with a good camera, or you hire a photographer for the event, consider the different styles of photography suitable for the event. Share your thoughts and expectations with the photographer beforehand to be sure he can achieve the look you’re hoping for. What’s fine art to the photographer may be blurry photography to you. I have seen countless customers unhappy with what I thought was award –winning photography, and the reverse as well. Classic Photography: If you want an emphasis on portraits with a more relaxed approach, this is the style for you. Most classic photographers combine portrait photography with a candid style throughout the evening. This approach yields the most  authentic and beautiful  collection of finished photographs of one of the most memorable days in your son’s life. Photojournalism: Throughout the event the photographer will capture all the pride and memorable moments with an unobtrusive presence that puts everyone at ease. The

shoelace, the spilled wine, the fluttering of emotions…. The photographer does not conduct the scene, it gently unfolds as the day progresses. There is very little posing, and certainly not in the traditional sense. This style of photography tells the story through the eyes of both the children and the adults. The ability to perfectly balance the fun and the significance of the event is what will set this style photography apart from another on this special day. Fine Art Photography: Where the beauty of photojournalism is providing a casual portrayal of events, the goal of fine art photography is to render a work of art. Here, the photographer will most certainly direct the scene to accomplish that. Many fine art photographers will have had classical training in photography.  Many fine art photographers also choose to use film instead of digital. True fine art photography is gorgeous, but can be somewhat abstract.  It is also rare.   If you want images that are works of art, and don’t look like anybody else’s, this may be the style for you.  However, if you want photographs that are less unusual, you may want to consider a more traditional style.   Keep in mind that some photographers who consider their style “fine art” may simply be trying

to communicate that their approach is creative or artistic. True fine art is not for the faint of heart.

The Monsey View presents this true story to help spread L’asurim’s message. L’asurim is committed to assist Jewish prisoners and their families by supporting them throughout their incarceration and beyond. As a service to the community, L’asurim will be sharing important information and insights on crime prevention in a weekly column in The Monsey View.

PART 2

Dear fellow Yidden! There are consequences for fooling around with the law! If my story inspires even one person to conduct his life and business with integrity, it will be worth the discomfort of putting my painful story in the limelight.

Life in Prison When I arrived at Fort Dix, the lieutenant barked out a warning to all the newcomers: “Should any of your new chaps [fellow inmates] here greet you, you may not answer. If you do, you go straight to the Hole. Follow me in a straight line!” I’ll describe the Hole later. First, a doctor came and gave us forms to fill out. Then a psychologist came and asked all sorts of questions. Everyone had a file opened for him and finally, after waiting for hours, they gave us something to eat. Once again, there was no kosher food. Each of us got a toothbrush, soap, shampoo, two rolls of toilet paper, a cup, two sheets, and one blanket — and each Jew got a pair of tefillin. We each also got an old pair of threadbare pants. Breakfast every day started at six o’clock. The kosher

76

/ T HE MO NS E Y V IE W

breakfast consisted of two thin slices of whole-wheat bread, two small jelly spreads, two small packs of cereal, a coffee packet, and a sugar packet. The next day’s menu was the same. In fact, this is what we ate every single day of the week for five years. On weekends, we got a generous cupcake added to our menu! At 7:30 in the morning we began our work. Yes, we did get paid for the work; the money went into our prison accounts. The good workers got a maximum of $60 a month. My first job was to clean the bathroom. Later, chores included picking up garbage from the streets, shoveling snow on freezing days, sweeping the stairs, and other menial jobs. I got $6 a month for that!

You might prefer not to know what the Hole was like. If someone did not do his job one day, he could get a “shot,” which is a sort of ticket that later translates into a penalty.

An example of a penalty is solitary confinement in the Special Housing Unit, which everyone calls the “Hole.” The Worst Place in Prison You might prefer not to know what the Hole was like. There’s a separate building with many underground cellar rooms. Each 3-by-6foot cubicle contains a cot with a thin mattress and a lavatory. There is no room to move in this tiny space. This is where a prisoner must sit in confinement for the number of days allotted him for his penalty. He also wears special orange clothing, and of course, he is not allowed to bring anything along with him. Food is brought to the Hole. For one hour a day, the person is allowed to go to a tiny “rec” room for “fresh air” — but that means indoor prison air. At six in the morning, the guard would wake me up and ask, “Do you need breakfast today?” and, “Do you want

the rec room today?” I had to give them an answer at dawn, even if I was still half asleep, because if not, I’d have to forego my “fresh air” at midday. What do you do in the Hole? Nothing. Literally. You sit locked inside day after day, night after night, without doing anything. The monotony can drive a person insane. You sit up and lie down, sit up and lie down … that’s all. There’s no difference between one day and the next. It’s all one big blur of mind-numbing monotony. But I had plenty of time to reflect on what I had done that had gotten me here in the first place. I spent a lot of the time feeling

remorseful for my mistakes. An inmate in solitary confinement is permitted to make a phone call only once in thirty days — if he still remembers how to talk! Letters do not get delivered to the Hole, only newspapers, and I got Hamodia, which literally saved my sanity. Throughout the seven years, I was taken to the Hole four times. The maximum stretch of time I was there was eighteen days. That’s 432 hours, 25,920 minutes, in which I was by myself with only the four walls. Please forgive me, but I just can’t describe what it felt like. I don’t know how I survived it.

always thought that maybe, just maybe, Hashem would hear our tefilos, and through yet one more appeal I would be granted my freedom. One day I was told that there was going to be a new hearing on my case. According to the law, starting from the transfer day, you are not allowed to use the phone anymore. But I, out of curiosity, tried to see if the phone was still working

and got through to my brother. Speaking in Yiddish, I told him that I was probably being transferred that day, and had found that the phone was still working but would be cut off soon. I was immediately summoned to the office. “Why did you make a phone call?” they asked me. I told them the truth — that I had wanted to inform my family that I was being transferred that day. I was taken to the bull pen to await my transfer and special security agents came there to interrogate me about that phone call. They told me that they were going to have my phone call translated in order to verify that I was telling the truth. A few hours later, I watched as all the inmates who were waiting together with me were taken to board the buses while I was left behind.

78 / T HE MO NS E Y V IE W

When they summoned me, I saw them holding that dreaded orange jumpsuit and knew what it meant. They told me that I had indeed told the truth about my phone call, but still, what I had done was a security breach and I would not be transferred that day. Instead, I was sent to the Hole for seven days of solitary confinement, Purim included. I am grateful to the askanim who succeeded in sending me a Megillah. Apparently this was to be my yeridah letzorech aliyah, my last downfall in order to start an ascent; obviously Heaven had preordained that I suffer a bit more before my salvation appeared on the horizon.

Esther

by Ruchel Lebovits

MODERNIZATION OF LAGUARDIA AIRPORT

by Sury Spitzer

Esther is a fictional story based on real people and real events. Esther grew up in the Hungarian village, Selisht, surrounded by her loving family. Esther’s spirit, wit, and unending generosity, combined with the boundless love she received from her parents and grandparents stand her in good stead in this summer story. Although this story takes place in 1933, when life in the European shtetel was still peaceful, these same attributes helped her overcome the terrible trials she faced years later during the war. The author, a granddaughter of Esther, is grateful every day for the deep love she was blessed to receive from her Babby Esther, and is doing all she can to continue her kindness.

Chapter 5 The Tax Inspector Recap: While Esther hides in Tatashe’s bed, pretending to be ill, Mima Feige comes looking for her. Frightened, Esther listens as she talks to Mamashe and finally leaves.

The next morning, Esther dreaded getting out of bed, thinking that she’d have to explain what had happened to the chicken. She was saved quite unexpectedly by the hated tax inspector and his horse and wagon, as they were making their way through the village. The entire village was caught

Esther’s Family Zaidy: Zaidy Chaim cares deeply about his family, and takes great pride in providing for them. He is an honest laborer who works hard to make a living in the poor Hungarian village, Selisht. Zaidy is considered a rich man because he owns a cow and a field. However, the field is owned by several partners who can never agree on selling the property, so Zeidy’s wealth is of no practical use. Babby: Babby Malka is a queen. She grew up in the city and appreciates beauty and elegance. Babby knows nothing of milking cows, growing vegetables or whitewashing blackened walls, which are the basics of a woman’s chores in the village. However, Babby Malka knows how to embroider the most exquisite tablecloths and knit the finest silk socks. Babby’s home is always impeccably clean.

/ T HE MO NS E Y V IE W

Tatashe: Tatashe is a serious Talmid Chachum, who spends his entire day and a big part of the night studying Torah. Zaidy Chaim and Babby Malka are very proud of their fine learned son-inlaw who is a true credit to the family. Esther loves Tatashe dearly. She enjoys listening to his Torah learning, and wouldn’t think of ever interrupting him. Mamashe: Mamashe is gentle and kind. She treats Tatashe, Zaidy, and Babby with boundless respect, as she works side by side with Babby to keep the household running smoothly. Having grown up in Babby’s care, Mamashe is the perfect combination of a city and village girl. She embroiders, knits, and sews clothing that is unsurpassed in elegance and style, and yet she has no fear of the cow, which she cares for with the same gentleness as she cares for her children.

Esther: The oldest of three children, Esther is surrounded by the love of her dear grandparents and parents. At age 10, Esther is a free-spirited girl who is fun loving and daring and has a heart as boundless as the village fields. Yet for all her spirit, Esther is always respectful to her elders, for that is how she was brought up. Mutche: Mutche is a good natured seven-year-old child. He spends plenty of time tagging along with Esther, whom he adores. Esther loves him too, which is why he is always welcome to join in her play. The rest of the time, he sits on a tall stool right near Tatashe who is teaching Mutche the Siddur. Ruchele: The baby Ruchele is at the center of all the activity at home. At age two, she gets into everyone’s way, except when the door is left ajar and she makes her escape. The noise of the chickens and the mooing of the cow alerts Mamashe to go search for Ruchele once again.

up with the action, and all thoughts of lost chickens seemed to be forgotten. The inspector stopped at many homes to collect the taxes that were due. If a family couldn’t pay, he would fold up their pillows and quilts, tie them up with string, and pile them into his wagon. Then, he would look around the house to see if there was anything else that was valuable, and he would take that away, too. Often, he would take the sewing machine. The village women’s sewing machines were old and made a terrible racket when used; still, these machines kept the family clothed. Hopefully, the father of the household would manage to borrow enough money to pay up before night, and then he’d be allowed to collect his family’s bedding. To the village children, the inspector was entertainment; they ran after the inspector’s wagon, recognizing different families’ linens. They made fun of him as they followed the wagon around the village,

Plans are underway for a 4-billion-dollar makeover project to bring LaGuardia Airport into the 21st century. On July 27, Governor Andrew Cuomo and Vice President Joe Biden announced plans to re-haul the Queens airport built in 1939 by creating an entirely new facility. “The goal is not really to repair and rebuild a 1939 airport. We want an airport that is a state-of-the-art facility. We want a globally renowned airport for the next century that is worthy of the name New York and what we’re doing,” Cuomo said. More than 50% of the planned renovations will be privately funded. The first half of the project is expected to break ground next year. The airport will remain open and functional during the construction phase. Along with LaGuardia, Cuomo also mentioned improvements that will take place at Stewart Airport in Newburgh, New York, to accommodate more commercial flights to reduce traffic at LaGuardia and JFK airports.

from the old smelly straw, washed out the mattress liners, and hung them to dry in the sun until they were crisp and smelled of sunshine. Then they filled them with fresh, sweet-smelling straw. They had also filled up the pillows with fuzzy new goose feathers which had been carefully plucked and washed and rewashed until they were soft and fluffy. But as Esther lay on her soft mattress and pillow, she could not help thinking about Frimet, and how all their pillows and blankets had been carried off by the tax inspector.

However, Esther could not join the fun. Although she too followed the inspector around the village, she did so with a feeling of dread. What would happen when he reached Frimet’s family? Frimet’s father worked hard to make a living. He was a cheder rebbe and learned Torah with the village children. Still, he never had enough to feed his family and surely didn’t have anything left to give to the tax inspector.

She hadn’t even worried about the missing chicken all day. But what about tomorrow? The little house grew quiet. Esther could hear Ruchele crying and Mameshe gently soothing her back to sleep. She could hear Zeidy Chaim and Babby Malka murmuring in the kitchen. But Esther’s mind could not quiet down enough to fall asleep. She had to do something to help Frimet and her mother and the baby. Suddenly, Esther knew what she must do. She would take her own bedding to Frimet’s home. At least her mother and the baby would be comfortable and warm. Without further consideration, Esther pulled her quilt off Mutche and rolled it up. Mutche, sat up abruptly rubbing the sleep from his eyes. “Esther,” he complained groggily, “the blanket fell down; could you give it to me?” He buried his face back into his pillow, expecting Esther to cover him warmly, as she did on many nights when the blanket fell off the bed. But as Esther got out of bed, pillow and quilt in hands, Mutche

Can I Trust You? Part 2

Recap: Last week we began the conversation with the idea that people are by nature suspicious and need to be convinced that they can trust you to sell them the best price and product. We also discussed the two ways to build trust; time - a lengthy process, or honesty - the fast way. This week we’ll talk about some practical applications of Trust-Based Marketing. Honesty, though the fast way, is brutal. It means you are ready to put yourself out there. You’re ready to be torn down, and you’re ready to stick to what you believe in. When you’re honest, people feel they can trust you. Here are two questions you need to address honestly: Who am I? The first thing we always want to know is, “Who are you?” By nature, our curious side kicks in every time we meet someone new. The more background information we have about a person, the less threatened we feel. Do your consumers know who you are? Is there a face to your company? How much information about you is readily available to them? Company profiles, interviews, and appearances make your business feel approachable. Can I trust you? Once they feel as if they know you and are comfortable with your name, they want to know if they can trust you. In essence they’re asking whether they can trust that you will supply them with the best price and product,

so that they’re not cheated or misinformed. Three ways to make trust come across in your advertising: Information: Informational marketing is more powerful than anything. When you give people information about your product, service, or related topics that help them make educated purchasing decisions, they feel you’re not hiding from them. They feel you’re not keeping anything from them - because you have nothing to hide. They feel that you are giving them the chance to make an informed choice. Transparency: Sometimesas business owners, we can make mistakes; we may overlook something. When you can be transparent about your changes, improvements, and difficulties, consumers sense the heart behind the business-like façade. In public companies, transparency is key: if you cannot access financial reports or updates, no one will buy their stocks.

Kindness: Many people view business owners as greedy and sneaky. That perception makes consumers hold onto their dollar, since they don’t trust that you have their best interest at heart. Show your kindness. Whether you show it with sponsorships, or charity, or just old- fashioned kindness, show the human side of business.

NEWS & VIEWS REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS DEBATE

by Ruchel Lebovits

Presidential Elections 2016 was officially taken to the next level when the ten top polling republicans running for office (there are 17 Republican candidates in total) faced off against each other in the most watched Presidential Debate in history last Thursday.

their campaigning mostly on early primary states, to establish themselves in front of a national audience and separate themselves from the pack. At the end of the night, some had succeeded better than others with many political pundits giving Rubio the win.

The candidates were businessman Donald Trump, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, Texas Senator Ted Cruz, Florida Senator Marco Rubio, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, and Ohio Governor John Kasich.

The big shocker of the night came when the moderator asked if any of the candidates would consider running for office as a third-party candidate if they lost the republican nomination and Donald Trump raised his hand. A third-party candidate always gives one party a better chance at winning and a Republican leaning third-party candidate would give the Democrats the upper hand. A declaration like that from a Republican candidate might cost Trump voter support.

The moderators did not shy away from asking personal and difficult questions. It was a lively and sometimes heated debate with the candidates going after each other aggressively. With such a large group running and the elections still many months ahead, this was the first chance for the candidates, who are focusing

A separate debate was held earlier for the seven remaining candidates that didn’t make it to the top ten list.

HOW YOUR INCOME AFFECTS YOUR MORTGAGE APPROVAL by Ann Zeilingold There are three basic factors that lenders and mortgage companies verify, analyze, and use as the determining factor as to whether to approve or deny a mortgage application. Those three factors are Credit, Income, and Assets/ Collateral. Borrowers all seem to know that they must have a good credit score, although they don’t always know what the minimum score required is. Despite this knowledge, borrowers ask regularly as to whether they can apply for a loan and get approved for a mortgage without showing income, although they are quick to tell me that they have a lot of assets, either money in the bank or ownership in property with a lot of equity. Is equity, or even liquid assets, enough to get approved for a mortgage? The answer is a resounding NO for the normal, conventional mortgage loan – which is the typical loan for a regular borrower looking to get a purchase mortgage or even

looking to refinance. Even when refinancing, sometimes people may be lowering their monthly payment, may have never been late, and may have liquid assets in the bank, but notwithstanding, rules are rules, and even common sense does not prevail. If you cannot show the proper amount of income, demonstrating the ability to repay the mortgage loan even in a refinance situation, the loan will be denied. Rules are rules, and even common sense does not prevail.

Questions that often come are the following: •

What happens if I get a new job?

What happens if I get a raise at work?

What happens if I am leaving my job and starting a new one in a few weeks?

What happens if I am

purchasing a home and go on maternity leave? •

What happens if I change professions?

What happens if I get a new second or additional job?

What do I do if I have only been working for two months?

What if I work for a family-owned business?

There are more questions that arise when it comes to income, and while some are easier than others to answer - because they are basic guideline questions - others are gray, and the answers are determined by underwriter discretion. What is underwriter discretion? An underwriter is the individual employed by the lender who makes a determination whether a loan should be approved or denied. It goes without saying that every file has to initially be approved through an automatic (computer

generated) approval, and only after that basic requirement is met, is the file reviewed by a human underwriter. And besides for the file qualifying strictly on ratios and assets, they have to make a decision if the employment seems stable - likely to continue and if the credit and income and general stability of the file is one that should be approved or not.

Because the answers to the above questions are not clear-cut, they can’t be answered succinctly. Over the coming months, we will be touching on these ideas and exploring options, but this is precisely why it is so important to work with an experienced and skilled mortgage loan originator. The guidance that he will offer is unparalleled, and it

could make the difference between getting an approval or a denial.
