A CHATZOS PARTNER EXPERIENCE.

TA L K O F TOWN

Dear Editor,

Dear Editor, I’m enjoying The Monsey View immensely. It’s the first time in fifteen years, since moving from the city, that I feel part of the community. The Monsey View represents its uniqueness and distinction by the content featured. The publication is where we feel connected and informed. It’s about the community. About us. The issues and subjects raised result in a tremendous awareness in so many different practical aspects. It’s where people like me can feel comfortable sharing their thoughts, opinions, and issues in an open forum discussion. Thank you so much for filling this need in our community. ~ An appreciative Monsey resident.

Dear Editor, Thank you very much for a wonderful weekly that we really enjoy. I just wanted to point out that at Shepherd Lake, aside for the boat rentals, there is also a swimming area on the lake that is completely open, and on a nice day is full of people swimming there dressed for the occasion. Much hatzlacha in the future. Thank you.

Your publication is great! From the beginning of the week, my kids start nudging me to bring home The View from the grocery. Since The View made its appearance, Friday afternoons changed from a long, boring, I-don’t-have-what-todo day to being busy with such creative, productive fun activities for all ages. ~ T.S. Dear Editor, One day, a while ago, I had good reason to be astounded, even shocked. Here’s why: A large group of young yeshivah yingelech (presumably pre-1A and/or first grade), together with their two rebbeim, were using my front lawn as a shortcut without having gotten reshus from me, the owner of this private property! Instead of teaching our kids that making use of someone else’s possession without reshus is an averiah, called geneivah, they led their innocent, young charges to sin. And if the above wasn’t enough to keep them away, they also paid no attention to the NO TRESPASSING sign displayed in their full view on a tree ahead. From a practical point of view, the area in question being part of a construction site right now, and not easy or safe to cross (B”H none tripped or fell), what will the mothers think when their little sons come home with very muddy shoes?

#521 REFUAH

It has been ten very medically challenging months since our precious daughter was born after years of waiting and a very complicated pregnancy. She continues to defy medical odds. When our Rav instructed us to make a seudas hodaah with a minyan, the obvious choice was Kollel Chatzos, as they have been learning and davening for Ahuva Bracha for more than a year.

EVERY MIDNIGHT the distinguished talmidei chachomim of Kollel Chatzos gather in locations across the globe. During the darkest hours, when the rest of the world sleeps, they immerse themselves in vibrant Torah learning, bringing zechusim and yeshuos to klal yisroel.

The seudah took place in the Monsey kollel at 1 am with the entire Kollel and numerous guests in attendance. Immediately thereafter the talmidei chachomim continued their nightly learning. It was such a beautiful and meaningful way to give thanks to Hashem! It gives us tremendous strength and hope knowing that the kollel members have her in mind every night.

YOURVOICE In Search of Gluten-Free Products

Has Our Town Turned into a City?

I would like to use this forum to reach out to the Monsey community at large in the hope that we can reach a solution.

I would like to bring up an issue that’s bothering me. As Monsey is growing, I miss the peace we once had. I understand that the population is growing, yet Monsey should not become a city! Throughout the week it is almost impossible to put kids to sleep at their regular bedtime. The noise outside is hammering. And if I dare be the bad neighbor to try get the children quiet, I am surely insane! It doesn’t finish here. If one lives next to a shul or simcha hall you can forget about sleep until 1:00 am. What has become of the norm of yesterday? Has all the menchlechkeit we learned since toddlerhood vanished? If parents were mechanech their children and would yenta less outside - later than they should - then we wouldn’t have this problem with the youngsters! Please, may I ask you all what you yenta all day long? Lashon hara? Rechilas - which will only bring machloikes? Or do you show off what you did, bought, cooked,etc, causing jealousy?

I am on a gluten-free diet, and my children are also gluten intolerant. Coming from the city, I realized that Monsey is lacking eateries and restaurants that sell glutenfree food. I believe that many aren’t aware of the demand for it and that there are quite a number of people on such diets. Changing just a few minor things can make a major d i ff e r e n c e for those suffering from gluten intolerance. Ingredients such as flour can easily be substituted with cornstarch for identical taste and consistency; providing gluten-free pasta, soy sauce, pizza, etc. for consumers is easy, and would be so appreciated. Fish and salad shouldn’t be the only available options for those on a glutenfree diet. ~ Gluten-Free

/ THE MO NS E Y V IE W

Or are you speaking about matters that should be kept private?

Where is our ‘’Ma tovu ohalecha Yaakov?” Has all tochen, mentchlechkiet, and Yiddishkiet drained from us? Is that a good enough reason to drain out all the sleep and energy from those around you with the “insane” idea that at one point day becomes night? What about gezel shina? What about gezel itself? Robbing someone else from the serenity she deserves?

r e g n u TheH c i m e d i ep Your neighbor. Your Friend. Your child’s Rebbi. Can you see their empty stomachs? Can you see the pain in their eyes? There is a hunger epidemic. And it’s spreading.

disappointment stabbed her again. It was still as empty as it was before. Chaya sunk to the floor. She was completely drained, empty of hope. How? How could she continue on like this? She dimly heard her baby stirring awake in the other room, but the haze of pain left her lethargic and slow. And so lonely. It was all on her shoulders. Everything. The apartment, the bills, the job…. Her family lived in Eretz Yisroel and Chaim’s family…. the pain stabbed so sharply, for a minute, she couldn’t breathe. Chaim. Her husband. Her deceased husband. She was a widow. It had all happened so suddenly. One day, he was complaining of headaches, and before she knew it, their lives had been swept up in a whirlwind of doctor appointments and treatments while she struggled to function through the shock and upheaval.

the doctors. And the visits. And the hospitals. It was just her. And their five kids. Alone. With the burden of responsibility. Chaim was an only child. His parents, Holocaust survivors, were quite elderly. They made ends meet but that was all. They had nothing to spare for her. And so she did all that she could. But it wasn’t enough. She negotiated with the schools, asked her landlord for more time, and pushed as many due dates as far off as she could. But the food? She had played all the games and they were done. She had racked up credit at so many stores that they no longer accepted anything but cash. And cash she didn’t have. The front door slammed, as her children piled into the home at the end of their day, knocking her out of her reverie. They ran into the kitchen and stopped short seeing their mother in a small, huddled heap on the floor. Their eyes held so much sadness, so much pain, too much for their few years. They no longer asked the question, “What’s for supper?” But she saw the hope in their eyes fade a little more each day. Pain upon pain upon pain. They were hungry. Everywhere she turned, she was haunted by their precious, hungry eyes. And an empty cupboard.

He had big plans. As a shy boy, he had a hard time making friends, but if he could bring in the

Maybe as soon as Mommy got home, she could take him shopping? The front door creaked opened slowly and he heard his mother’s weary steps. “Hi Moshe’le,” she said, “You are such a good boy, doing your homework already! I am proud of you!”

“d o you know n e x t week’s my birthday? I can’t wait to pick out a cake and toys and nosh. Can we go now? We really need food in the house anyway! The fridge and the pantry are empty!” His mother’s face crumpled a bit. “No, Moshe, we can’t go shopping. Not today.” “Okay,” he “tomorrow?”

We don’t have money for the food we need. I am so sorry, but we can’t buy you anything for your birthday.” Moshe tried to understand, but his brain was really struggling to comprehend. “Nothing?

We will dance and sing and play games… but no cake.” Moshe swallowed his tears. His mother was trying the best she could. But they really had no money. His special day at school, his dreams, his hopes for making new friends, they all vanished and crumbled in the face of reality. His mother would try to make him feel good at home, but he knew that at school, it would be a day just like any other. A very un-special day.

PART 1

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.

Just like in the books, it was dreary and overcast on the day my fate was sealed with a bang of the gavel: twelve years, seven months in prison. My lawyer pleaded for leniency, arguing that all my incriminating actions were erroneously carried out by a naïve young man; but the judge dismissed those claims as groundless. Ignorance is not an excuse for not following the law. If my story inspires even one person to conduct his life and business with integrity, it will be well worth the discomfort of putting my painful story in the limelight. An Unsuspecting Suspect It all began when I got a simple secretarial job at age eighteen. The office was conveniently located, I was learning new and exciting office skills, and the boss was happy with my work. That’s all that mattered to me. For the first three years, it never occurred to me not to trust my boss. Only when I grew older and more worldly did I realize that what my boss was doing was not really legal. I thought that he was looking for loopholes in order to outsmart the law and was treading on what I thought was a grey area of law. He was taking much bigger risks than I would ever dare to take. It never dawned on me that my boss’s business ethics would be my problem. Besides, no one ever got caught with this kind of stuff. Right? Wrong!

/ THE MONS E Y V IE W

About two years after I left that job, I was on a business trip in Louisiana, when a friend called me at 5 am to tell me that my former boss and co-workers were being arrested. I chuckled at his joke, reminded him of the time, and went back to sleep. When my father called me two hours later and told me about the multiple arrests in the community, I realized that my friend hadn’t been joking. That’s when I felt the first twinge of nervousness. I thought about how I would have to turn myself in at the police station when I’d get back to New York. I expected it would be inconvenient and unpleasant.

that I would need a lawyer, but some of the questions seemed insignificant to me, and I did answer them. That was a mistake. The First Few Days in Captivity I stopped feeling innocent at my arraignment. The prosecutor rapidly listed one charge after another and announced the recommended sentence for each until my head began to spin. A quick calculation told me that my total sentence, incredibly, would amount to 240 years! They took me to jail and put a bag of food into my cell. I asked them if they had anything kosher. The officer

Meanwhile, my brother and other activists were working on my behalf. The Aleph organization was able to procure a new microwave for me. “What am I supposed to warm up in my kosher microwave?” I asked the warden. “Tea and apples?!” I wanted so badly to speak to my family, but there were no phones anywhere. The wall clock in my room wasn’t working, so I didn’t even know what time it was. After a day and a half, someone gave me a special form to sign in order to access a phone.

saw Harav Avraham Yaakov Horowitz, shlita, Rav of Djikov–Melitz in Monsey. He placed a yarmulke on my head and had handed me a pair of tefillin. I excitedly grabbed the tefillin and quickly put them on. I had a lot to daven for. At twelve o’clock at night, I was finally brought to my tiny cell. It took two days until I got used to clearing away enough space on the floor so I had room for my feet when getting off my “bed.” On Friday, Erev Pesach, I was awakened at four in the morning and taken down to the “bull pen.” Today, I was told, I would be taken to the courthouse. In the bull pen, we were all squeezed together on the floor, where we waited for them to bring food.

30 / T HE MONS E Y V IE W

When I asked for kosher food, the response was, “What? Kosher? There’s no kosher food here! You don’t want to eat this food? So don’t eat!” I was used to starving by then. When I arrived to court, I was advised by two lawyers that if I cooperate and give them information about my accomplices, I could greatly shorten my sentence. I told them what I’d already told the FBI agents in Louisiana: “I’d love to cooperate and I really don’t want to have to sit in jail, but I will not implicate other people; it is out of the question.” The courthouse was full of family members and good friends. White-haired, elderly Judge Fox presided over the c o u r t session. M y father stepped up to the witness s t a n d and made a passionate appeal for my release. He had to answer all sorts of questions. The air in the courtroom was thick with tension.

The judge left the room for a few minutes, and when he came back, he said, “I really sympathize with this nice family, but I have decided that Chaim should stay behind bars and not be released on bail until the trial.” That was a bombshell. I swallowed hard, realizing that the difficulties I was facing would be even greater than I’d imagined. It was almost Pesach when I arrived back to prison and learned that matzos had been sent for the Jewish prisoners, along with grape juice and everything else needed for a Seder. That night, I celebrated zman cheiruseinu behind bars. It was the first of 14 sedarim that I would sing to myself in prison. On Chol Hamoed, a few special individuals came to visit me. May you never know what it means to be thrilled at the sight of a heimishe face. Speaking to someone who feels for you and sympathizes with you — the feeling is indescribable. I spent about eight months at that facility until the trial began. Every so often, I was awoken at four in the morning to take me to the courthouse for a status hearing.

Slowly, I became acquainted with the system. I saw someone eating something that I hadn’t seen in the jail kitchen, so I asked him where he had gotten hold of it. He told me, “It’s from the commissary.” When he saw my blank look, he explained to me how one needs to get money in his prison account — either by working in prison or by someone from the outside depositing money into the account — and then he can buy from the commissary whatever he’s missing: food, drinks, soap, or clothing. The maximum spending amount varies among facilities. In federal prisons, inmates are allowed to spend up to $290 a month. The Verdict From Lag BaOmer 5762/2002 on, I was taken to court every single day. My lawyer was Vincent Briccetti. The first proceedings ended in a mistrial. At the second trial, my entire future was doomed by the bang of the judge’s gavel. The word “guilty” echoed with grim finality through the courtroom. I was found guilty on fifteen out of thirtytwo charges. I saw my parents cover their faces with their hands. I just closed my eyes, hoping this was all one big,

bad dream and I would soon wake up. But it was no dream; it was a nightmarish reality. The question now was how long my sentence would be. It was on a very overcast day on June 25, 2003 when I was taken to the courthouse for sentencing. I felt an eerie sense of foreboding.

The word “guilty” echoed with grim finality through the courtroom. The judge sealed my fate that day. Twelve years and seven months in prison! You cannot imagine what it is like for a person to hear that he will lose so many years in the prime of his life. From where does one draw the strength not to break down completely upon hearing such a verdict? The feeling is too terrible to put to words. There was no time to even digest it. The moment the verdict was announced, I was surrounded and escorted out of the courtroom.

BECOMINGWEIGHSMARTER Is Fat Good for You?

Yes, you guessed right, it depends on which kind! There is the good fat and the bad fat. Fat Phobia You see, not too long ago, people made no distinction between types of fats. The message was black and white – fat is unhealthy and fat makes you fat. Fat-Free Foods This fear of fat spawned an entire industry of fat-free foods such as cakes, cookies, ice cream, yogurt, and nearly every other food you can think of. We ate these fat-free foods without fear or guilt because we believed it was okay since the label said “FAT FREE!” A very strange thing happened despite the fact that dietary fat was decreased over the past two decades; the incidence of obesity and health problems continued to rise and it still hasn’t stopped. If collectively we all cut our fat from our diets, how can it be that we continued to get fatter and our health deteriorated? The Glaringly Obvious Answer “Fat-free” doesn’t mean sugarfree or calorie-free! What happened over the past two decades is that many people cut out the fat, and simply didn’t

realize that it was replaced with refined sugar. A food label can say “fat-free” and the food can be 100% sugar. Further, if you’re eating lots of sugar, as you learned in our article last week, you know what it turns into – fat in your body! Where did this fat come from? Ironically, from the fatfree food you just ate. Healthy Fats – Saturated, Polyunsaturated and Monounsaturated Fats It’s almost like magic when I suggest for people to add in some healthy fats. They not only start reducing their waistlines, but their energy

by Esty Weiss

Other healthy fats are polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats. These come mostly from vegetables and nuts such as walnuts, almonds, sunflower oil, and avocados. They can also be found in some types of fish. Both of these fats contain healthy essential fatty acids (EFA’s) such as omega-3 and omega-6. Additionally, these fats will help you reduce body fat as well as help you reduce bad cholesterol. Dangerous Fat – Trans Fat Oils are by nature extremely unstable substances that go rancid very quickly upon exposure to air and light. “Hydrogenation” and “partial hydrogenation” are practices that food manufacturers use to prolong the shelf life of their products such as margarine. Some call hydrogenated oils (i.e. trans fats) a manufacturer’s dream because they are a nearly unspoilable substance that lasts a long time. Trans fats are processed forms of

If it says partially hydrogenated vegetable oil in the ingredients, you’re better off leaving it on the shelf! Many nutrition labels will say zero grams of trans fat, but if you read the ingredients you might still come across partially hydrogenated oil. There are tons of products made today to buy instead. If you like baking yourself, get the margarine that has no trans fat or use coconut oil, palm oil, or olive oil. It might be more expensive, but your health is worth all the money!

sitting at the right of the rosh yeshivah. “How much would you pay? How many boys do you have?” “Who are you?” the rosh yeshivah said. My elter zeide was already here with the prushim. I told him who I was.

Stone

by Chany Rosengarten

Recap: Chaya’s store opens, and requires far more time and effort than she expected. Duvid’s story Cigarettes are an economy of their own. There’s a give and take that surpasses currency; the only exchange needed is goodwill. I wish all of life ran this way, because with cigarettes, I’m all set. I was starved. I was always starved, but today the hunger felt like the hand of a thief, sneaking in, clawing. But I could take a puff, and the smoke would rush in and my lungs would fill up with warmth. At the entryway to the yeshivah, I stood, yearning to be part of this world. I could make it work. I could gain a few prutas working within the Torah walls, couldn’t I? So how could I squeeze the last few drops of earnings from the drying up reservoir of a yeshivah? Perhaps if I found a bochur from America to learn with together. One or two had started coming; you recognized them immediately by their larger eyes, polished shoes, and more than just the

regular clothes. Others in my situation took plane rides and settled into lodgings in foreign lands to access American wealth. Could I get some of that American wealth here by giving some attention and tutelage to the boys who traveled here to learn? I drew elaborately on my cigarette and walked through the doors. This one was American. It was clear. His facial hair wasn’t blonde, wasn’t red; it was a rust that only happens in certain climates. I sat down across from him. He looked up. I gave him my hand. “Shalom aleichem. How is it going?”

“Nothing like it.” I thought a moment, wondering how to extend the conversation before launching into my offer. “But the accommodations, how are they? Coming from America, you must be used to better.” “I’m not from America. I’m from Tzfas. An orphan, staying at my uncle’s.” “Oh,” I said. How could I have been so wrong? Not every weird-looking person was American. “So, how is it going?” “Baruch Hashem,” he said, pulling the Gemara closer to his chest and peering inside.

Dismissed, I picked myself up and ambled on. Perhaps I was too exhausted to make a better judgment. My insides shuddered as they realigned I should talk to themselves from starvation to satiation. the administration of the yeshivah. What was my family eating? I went up to the “It’s going well. Toras Eretz Mizrach wall. “What if I want Yisrael.” to learn with a bochur, for pay?” I asked the yungerman “Nothing like it,” I agreed.

“We pay eighty lira a month, for an hour every day,” he said. “We have plenty of parents willing to pay extra so their children will excel. When it comes to chinuch habanim, no money should be spared.”

The per fect Sh idduch :

A ring to go with your bracelet.

“Let me start with one,” I said. They bent close and discussed it. The yungerman beckoned for me to follow and showed me to the far end. A blond boy, thick yellow peyos like two walls, colorless eyes, and so very thin, sat at a table, alone. He was most definitely not American, and he made an impression of someone who could never be built up. “Zugt di heilige Gemara,” I said, sidling up to him on I was starved. I was always his bench. I starved, but today the hunger pointed to the felt like the hand of a thief, top of the daf, giving him sneaking in, clawing. a chance to respond. He started on the gemara right away, speaking slowly, haltingly, in a thin voice. In the spaces of quiet between each of his words, my mind wandered. If I had four boys like these, it would give me 400 lira. That meant four hours of mind-numbing boredom for not much more than the kollel paid. It was all so purposeless. I looked at the time. Not fifteen minutes had passed. I lit up for another smoke. “Please don’t do that next to me.” The bochur had audacity. Then he started coughing. It wasn’t audacity, it was weakness. I was in the beis medrash again, and earning. My mind started doing calculations. This would give me an extra hundred a month. Put away, it would afford us a dirah for

Malka’la within seven years. The boy stopped. I looked at him, his eyes were hurt. He wasn’t an American, on whom I could string false hopes in the belief that one day they would come true. Eighty lira; that’s the most I’d ever get. I’d be helping a boy who obviously needed it. But I couldn’t, because I didn’t have the attentiveness, the patience, which is all anyone ever needs to learn. So this wasn’t right for me. Or maybe it was. Together with Chaya’s new income, perhaps we would pay off the dirah within three years. But that meant borrowing. And by the end of three years, two more of our children would come of age and need a dirah. What had I done to myself? Didn’t I say this clearly, that I wasn’t doing a shidduch before knowing how I would pay for it? I couldn’t make the grade. It says that whoever takes on the yoke of Torah won’t have to serve under the yoke of governance. But not me. For the sake of my children’s lives, I had to sign out of the world of Torah. This wasn’t working. I was too hungry, I could hardly concentrate on the learning myself, and I hardly had it in me to extend my impoverished self to another human being. I could go back to Rachamim. Compared to this bochur, Yosef, who was throwing me wounded looks, it seemed exciting. Dragging boxes, and dropping

“I was wondering how dedicated you are,” Rachamim said. “We’ll pay you handsomely.”

What had I done to myself? Didn’t I say this clearly, that I wasn’t doing a shidduch before knowing how I would pay for it? purposelessness of it all. I needed to go home. Discuss this with Chaya, hear what she had to say. Relate the disaster of sitting down with a bochur on an empty stomach — a bochur more in need than I was, if that was at all possible — to try to give him something. Ask her, between the two choices, what the best way to go was. Watch her face open with compassion as I speak about the boy, harden as I consider the physical labor. How could I tell her about my efforts to increase income when she was working hard on nourishing her dreams about the store? How could I tell her about kollel when we had managed to sidestep this disappointing subject over the last few days? I knew what I needed to do. It was becoming late, three thirty, when siesta hour was over and shutters rolled back up for business. If I was taking the job with Rachamim, I needed to show I was serious. I walked back to his building in the midday heat. The shimmering coos of doves in the sun assailed me as I walked. His was a building with a patch of landscape on both sides of his walkway. I took the stairs.

“Yes,” I said, afraid to let him talk, afraid to confront my wages. “I’m ready.” “Eat something before we go,” Rachamim said. He could intuit hunger, I realized, as if he was familiar, having experienced it himself. He smeared a pita thick with techina and threw on a couple of eggplant slices. I bit into the most heavenly, creamy sandwich I’d had in a long time, feeling like a traitor. My insides shuddered as they realigned themselves from starvation to satiation. What was my family eating? Shouldn’t I leave some over to share?

But it disappeared in a second, and then I was ready to start. Rachamim bid me to lead the way down the stairs, so with heavy footfalls, I walked confidently into my own fate. How to tell Chaya?

FRUITY TREATS to Beat the Heat

Some of the best fruits are ripe for the picking in the summer, and yet somehow, summer eating still gets a bad rap. You can blame the barbecues and ice cream truck - or the abundance of leisure time spent snacking on junk, sugary ices and razzles. However, you can decide to be proactive and take matters into your own hands. I can’t think of a smarter way to indulge than to use summer’s sweet fruits to create fantastically refreshing and wholesome treats to enjoy on these long, hot summer days. The recipes below are guaranteed delicious, healthy and refreshing. They are easy to prepare and easy on your waistline. Enjoy every bite! Miriam

TEVALAND PETTING FARM

E XCURSIONS

Brandt Rd., Hillburn, NY

Tevaland’s motto is “Touch and be touched by nature,” and the description of the farm experience is very apt. Located 15-20 minutes away within Rockland County, Tevaland is a family homestead which aims to create a wonderfully immersive and meaningful way of exploring nature. They offer a uniquely customized experience for children and adults, (which can also be geared specifically toward individuals with special needs).

ABMA’S FARM MARKET, GREENHOUSE, AND PETTING ZOO 700 Lawlins Road, Wyckoff, NJ 07481

Abma’s family farm, located in Bergen County, NJ, is a short 20-minute trip from Monsey. The 30-acre farm dates back to the 1790s; the homestead and outbuildings are well preserved and kept in their original state. The farm is so charming! The landscape is a patchwork of pastoral hills, exuberant bursts of brightly colored flowers, and rustic barns. It has a quaint country feel that will warm your heart. BARNYARD: The petting zoo has a great variety of animals, including ponies, donkeys, cows, calves, sheep, goats, turkeys, pheasants, and rabbits. There is also a chick hut, where you can peek through panes of glass and see countless adorable yellow baby chicks! (If you are in the mood of a pet, you can occasionally purchase baby chicks for $3.50 each.) Children are encouraged to pet and stroke the animals, to feed carrot tops to the rabbits, and crackers to the sheep and goats. If you would like to feed the animals, you may purchase animal crackers from the market- a dollar for four crackers, and bunches of carrots for the rabbits. The petting zoo is free, open to the public year ‘round during Market hours.

54

/ THE MONS E Y V IE W

Abma’s Market sells a tremendous variety of fresh produce and eggs for very reasonable prices. There is also a stunning floral nursery and greenhouse at the farm, which sells a variety of beautiful seasonal blooms-it’s worth a visit, even if you don’t intend to purchase any. There is a comfortable picnic area. We recommend that you bring a simple sandwich lunch from home, and purchase some fruits for dessert. Children love the idea that the apples, nectarines and cherries they are munching on may have been hanging off a tree branch only the night before! Open All Year Monday – Friday 8am – 6pm Closed on Sundays 700 Lawlins Road Wyckoff, NJ 07481 201-891-0278 23-minute drive from Monsey

In a completely private and inspiring setting, visitors can interact directly with free-roaming animals, engage in outdoor activities and learn the ancient tradition of making goat cheese. You can visit Tevaland by appointment only, and the duration of each visit is one hour. The farm strongly emphasizes the customtailored experience they provide for their visitors. They schedule only one family/ group at a time, and devote themselves completely to make the visit a memorable one. Some of the hands-on activities offered by Tevaland include: Milking the goats Natural horsemanship (suitable for non-riders, as well as for seasoned riders) Therapeutic petting…goats, rabbits, horses, and chickens and more Nature-inspired arts & crafts All-terrain remote control car course Archery and wood-skills By appointment only. Admission at Tevaland is $25.00 per participant, and one adult is admitted free as a chaperone. However, it seems the price is flexible, and they easily offer generous discounts, especially for large families. Email or call and they will contact you promptly.

DEPIERO’S COUNTRY FARM MARKET AND PETTING ZOO 3—W. Grand Ave., Montvale, NJ 07645

DePiero’s Country Farm has branded itself as “an old-fashioned farm stand.” The farm cultivates an atmosphere of homespun country charm. The main draw at this farm is their fruits and vegetables. The market consists of 40,000 square feet of fruits and vegetables, and their offerings are something special - luscious and robust, fresh and flavorful. Besides for the huge variety of produce from their own orchards, Depiero’s also imports a vast array of exotic specialty items, from sweet Thai basil to crimini mushrooms. They also carry a wonderful assortment of fresh herbs. When you visit Depiero’s, it’s worthwhile to pay a visit to their huge craft loft upstairs. The

56

/ T HE MONS E Y V IE W

spacious loft is packed with an eclectic array of handmade gifts, cards, and housewares. There you’ll find handmade quilts, hand-stitched stuffed animals, artwork and crafts from local artisans, whimsical kitchen gadgets, and countless other cute tchotchkes. Depiero’s also has a small (free) petting zoo, including a cow, goats, sheep, chickens, rabbits, ponies, and ducks.

Open all week, year ‘round: 7 am to 6 pm 3—W. Grand Ave. Montvale, NJ 07645 201-391-4576 Fourteen-minute drive from Monsey

NOTE:

The three farms featured this week are notable mainly for their close proximity to Monsey, their petting zoos, and for their ultra-fresh produce. None of these farms offer a pick-yourown orchard. We plan iy”H to feature several beautiful fruit and vegetable orchards in our August 26th issue, just in time for the bountiful autumn season. Stay tuned!

PIXEL IN A POCKET Baby’s First Year

Pajama Party | Calendar Count | Apples and Oranges | Chalk it Up | Month to Month | Cards 365

You don’t need elaborate backdrops or expensive lighting equipment to photograph your baby during the first year. A little creativity yields extravagant results. Shoot from the heart and let your intuition guide you. Some basics to consider: babies look best when photographed in soft, natural light. Use reflectors (a white sheet of paper, a small mirror, or kitchen foil) to get catchlights in their eyes or to fill in shadows. A plain painted wall or a piece of mat board from a frame shop work well enough as a backdrop. Always be on the lookout for interesting pieces to use as props. Just this morning, I came across a plank of wood left to the elements…it is going to make a captivating backdrop for somebody’s baby shoot. Although you may be feeling less than creative some days,

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!

take advantage of as many moments as you can to grab your camera. A baby’s smile, her eyes, and the way she holds your finger, the chubby little toes… Here are some creative ways of documenting your baby’s first year in photographs: Pajama Party: Starting the first week of your baby’s life, photograph your little one in a pair of pajamas and do this monthly; same place, same pose, same pjs. This will make for some entertaining photos that show just how much your newborn grew during that first year. Start with a 6-month size pajama. The first half year the baby will be swimming in the photo, and by year’s end hopefully she will be filling it to the seams, or more so. Calendar Count: This is as much fun as it is easy. Buy one of those large desktop calendars and lay your baby down on the current month’s page (August, for those eager to get started today) with “I’m #__ Months” written on the date they turn that age. The poses will progress from a napping baby in January to his crawling prints walking off the page in December. Apples and Oranges: Another way of showing

your baby’s age is to place your baby next to a certain number of objects. For instance, a one-month old would be photographed propped next to one apple, while a 12-month old would be surrounded by a dozen fruits. What a beautiful collage this would make at year’s end. Keep it thematic by using fruits and vegetables, or entirely different items, such as wooden toys, floral species, etc. Chalk it Up: Chalk seems to be all the rage these days. (Check out the chalkboard aisle in Michael’s, you’ll love it!) The use of a chalkboard and an artistic hand make for some adorable monthly baby photos! Take a photo of your baby each month in front of a chalk board with the baby’s current age, stats, and fun facts written on the board. Chalk is forgiving, so if you don’t like what you see, erase and start again. Another chalk-inspired idea is making its strong mark in the business of baby photography. Lay the baby on a chalkboard, and let his natural position determine the pose. At age 3 months he will likely lie with his hands outstretched and his face turned upward. Draw an umbrella near his upturned

hand and chalk in raindrops above his head. Try drawing a different scene every month of his first year. Can’t think of anything to draw? Maybe try using words instead of drawings. Your baby’s adorableness will do most of the work. Month-by-Month Comparison Photos: Choose a blanket and cozy corner to photograph your baby on the first of each month. Lay a stuffed animal, a baby giraffe for example, beside the baby to gauge baby’s size by comparison. You will wonder whether the stuffed animal is shrinking, because the difference in size between months 1 and 12 are that huge! Cards 365: Photograph your baby often and scribble a loving message on the printed image. Sample card message: Day #24- “Today was good, today was fun. Tomorrow is another one.” This is one project that can be so beautifully done. The message can be a loving thought or quote. Each individual photo will be amazing in itself, but the project as a whole is remarkable. Picture how much a daughter will

appreciate having all these photos and letters to enjoy when she’s older. After photographing your way through the first 12 months, here is a perfect way to celebrate the first year> The Cake Smash. 1st Birthday: Cake Smash Smash the cake is news to all… new to some, and old news to others. What is a cake smash? It is an event to celebrate your baby’s first year by giving her a first taste of birthday cake, with a photographer capturing the every detail and expression. Much of the cake gets squished and squashed and not much gets eaten, but that’s exactly the point. Some probably think this is silly, and perhaps it is, but it’s also adorable and creates lasting memories you will always love. Here’s what you will need for this: - Backdrop. A good choice is seamless paper. For $25 you can purchase a roll that is 52”wide and 107” long. There are endless color choices, one for every taste. Bold and bright colors should be paired with neutral colored-clothing, and vice versa. For a very simple budget, you could

even use a bedsheet for the backdrop. Walmart sells such sheets for $7. Both can be taped to your wall if you have nothing to hang the backdrop from. - Decorations. Hang a pennant banner made out of scrapbook paper and ribbon. Use coordinating colors to match the baby’s outfit. A fun element to add is a bouquet of balloons. Hanging tendrils of ribbon is an eyecatching effect as well. - Plexiglass. This is useful for keeping the surface flat and wrinkle-free. Plus, the reflection adds a touch of sleek professionalism. Plexi is available in sheets sized 4’x3’ at Lowes and Home Depot for approximately $30. - Good Lighting. It is always preferable to use natural light versus a camera flash. Try to set up the cake and backdrop near a big glass sliding door or beside large windows. If outdoor light is not available, professional lighting is going to make all the difference. And finally - A Cake! A professionally baked cake will much enhance the cake smashing event. Order a 6” cake. The more colorful and unusual the coloring, the better.

Capture the cake alone in front of your backdrop before you bring the baby in. Also try to have a back up cake in case something goes awry. The cake should be at room temperature so that it will crumble easily when baby takes his first bite. Get down low on the floor and start capturing the action…. Baby eyes the cake hungrily and perhaps warily…moves toward the creamy center and digs in….fingers and toes soon covered in cake crumbs… and somewhere in that glorious mess is a smile to be …. Captured. Note: A cupcake can work just as well as a cake, if you are concerned that the cake will go to waste after the session.

KIDS’ SERIAL

Esther

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 4 In Trouble Recap: Esther, together with the Mima Feige’s chicken she was meant to bring to the shochet, goes to the main street to hear the town crier’s announcement. The chicken escapes.

The village children were hot on the chase of Esther’s runaway chicken. They whooped and laughed each time they nearly caught hold of its wings. They were having fun. Esther, however, was so scared of Mima Faige that it was no fun for her at all. As the chicken headed toward the lake, Esther grew

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 MONS 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.

frantic. She had to catch Mima Faige’s chicken before it got away. As the children continued to shout and run, they frightened the poor chicken into flying out into the lake. Esther, ahead of the rest of the children, ran onto the small wooden bridge that spanned the lake. Suddenly, she lost her footing and slid into the murky water. She came out spluttering and wet with long slimy reeds hanging from her hair. Still, she had no time to worry about her sorry state as she frantically looked around for the chicken. To her utter dismay, the chicken was now so far out in the lake, she could not hope to follow it there. She knew that chickens couldn’t swim very well. She also knew that as soon as the gypsies, who lived on the other side of the lake, spotted the chicken, they would row out on one of their little boats, catch it, and eat it. Then they would sing and dance happily all night for the pleasures of a good meal. They would not think about a little girl who was in deep, deep trouble with

for Esther to pick her up. On tiptoes , Esther crept quietly into Mamashe’s bedroom. Soundlessly, she undressed and took her pajamas from the cupboard. Then she undid her braids and used Mamashe’s big comb to get rid of the long grass still clinging to her hair. On impulse, Esther crawled into Tatashe’s bed. She’d be a lot less noticeable there, than in the bed she shared with Mutche in the big room. Esther snuggled her face deep into Tatashe’s pillow; it smelled of Tatashe. For the first time that day she breathed deeply. In Tatashe’s bed she was safe.

With the fun over, the children quickly dispersed in search of new entertainment. As Esther crossed the yard Clarel and Frimet stayed to the little house, she knew by Esther, eyeing her wet, what she would do. She dirty dress and slimy hair would not allow Mima Faige sorrowfully. “What are to get at her. She would hide you going to do, Esther?” by going to sleep. What a Clarel whispered. Esther simple solution! Why didn’t just shrugged. A puddle was she think of it sooner? She forming around her from would pretend to be sick her wet clothes, turning the and go to sleep.

why she was in bed all day? Was she still safe in Tatashe’s bed? Should she hide under the bed? Esther lay perfectly still. She couldn’t bear to hear what would happen in the big room, yet she couldn’t bear not to hear.

Mima Faige’s voice was sharp and clear, “Where is Esther lay in bed for a long, Esther?” she demanded. “And long time. She heard the where is my chicken?” Mima family sit around the table Faige sounded furious. Esther at dinner. She was hungry. could hear Babby asking But even Babby’s shlishkes something, but her voice couldn’t compete with her was low, and Esther couldn’t fear of Mima Faige. She make out the words.

Will Mima Faige dare to walk into Mamashe’s bedroom? Will Babby and Mamashe call her when they figure out

“I sent that irresponsible child to the shochet with my chicken, and she never came back. What a foolish child! I knew she can’t be trusted with anything. Haven’t I told you countless times, Malka, that you are raising her too softly? Now look at how she behaves.” Esther was shaking under the quilt. How dare Mima Faige talk to Babby Malka like that? “Where is my chicken?”

Mima Faige demanded. Her voice was getting louder. Was she coming to the bedroom? Esther ducked her head under the quilt and willed herself to stop shaking. Her teeth were chattering so loudly, they sounded like drums. Would she open the door? Now Babby and Mamashe knew the truth. What would they do? What were they thinking? From under Tateshe’s heavy quilt, Esther could no longer hear what Mima Faige was saying, though she could hear her shrill voice overpowering Babby’s and Mamashe’s soft voices. After a long time, Esther heard the door to the house bang shut, and she knew that Mima Faige left the house and that she was angry. Eventually, Esther saw that Mamashe was not coming into the bedroom to speak to her, and she finally started breathing again. She lay still for a very long time until she finally fell into a deep sleep. She did not feel anything at all when Tatashe came home later that night and gently carried her to her own bed in the big room. She did not hear when Tatashe asked Mamashe about why she was sleeping in his bed. To be continued... TH E MON S EY V I EW /

IS THIS FINALLY IT? DEBRIS FROM A BOEING 777 FOUND, LIKELY FROM MISSING MALAYSIA FLIGHT MH370 Officials were “increasingly confident” that debris from a Boeing 777 that washed up on Reunion Island, an island in the Southern Indian Ocean, is from the doomed Malaysian flight MH370 which disappeared off the radar on March 8th 2014 with 239 people on board. Since the first discovery of a flaperon, a part of the wing that helps control an airplane’s speed last week , investigators have found what looked like a part of a luggage, as well as a piece of metal that is considered “an object of interest.” The debris has been sent to France to be further analyzed. They hope to confirm that it in fact originated from MH370, as well as how long it had been in the water. The search for MH370 had centered on the Southern Indian Ocean almost from the start, but investigators

For Stuttering Are YOU looking for a technique which really works? I had a stutter my whole life. After going to top speech therapists, with zero success, I did a lot of introspection with myself, other stutterers and non-stutterers. After many tefillos and determination to help myself and others, The Ribono Shel Olam made the ‘Smooth Speech Solution’ crystal clear in my mind. After a few days (that’s right, days), I became a non-stutterer. A few days later I called many Roshei Yeshiva to offer my help… So far the ‘Smooth Speech Solution’ has been very successful for everyone.

THE FHA 203K LOAN: THE SECRET TO AFFORDING A HOME THAT NEEDS RENOVATIONS by Ann Zeilingold When looking for a home, it’s sometimes hard to find the right home, in the right neighborhood and also in the condition that you want to live in. There are homes that are “move-in” or “cream puffs,” but even those homes may need some modification. What happens when you are looking for a home, and you are on a limited budget and a house comes up, but it needs work? This scenario happens often. The clients are ready to move forward, but after paying for the down payment and closing costs they don’t have the extra money to fix up the house. Also, sometimes the best deals are on the homes that need some TLC. Naomi Streicher, broker owner of Realty Teams, has said often, ”A home that smells, just doesn’t sell.” Hedva Dahan, broker associate at Realty Teams, adds, “A home that needs work, even cosmetic work or deferred maintenance, will not sell as quickly or for the same price as another home

that shows better and is maintained.” A family looking to purchase, especially a firsttime home buyer, doesn’t have the resources in most cases for the basic painting, scraping of the floors, let alone possible window and roof replacement. There is a mortgage product which is not used as often as it should. It’s the FHA 203K Loan. This is a loan designed to provide funds for renovations. The minimum renovation cost is $5,000 all the way up to $625,500. This loan offers tremendous flexibility, and it gives the client the funds over the purchase price if needed to fix up a home being purchased. Ricky G. closed on her home in Pomona. She had a minimum down payment (3.5%) and she didn’t even have the money for the closing costs. We were able to structure a purchase for her where the seller paid $20,000 towards her closing costs, and we gave her $30,000 to do repairs. Ricky bought her home with less than $25,000 in total and today, after

completing the renovations of her home, which primarily were of cosmetic nature, she lives in a beautiful home. This loan product involves the underwriter reviewing the work to be completed and the appraiser assessing the value currently and after completion of the renovations. By doing this type of assessment, the bank actually gives a mortgage to the client based on the after improved value; usually this loan is larger than the purchase price. After closing, as the work is completed, the bank releases the renovation funds as needed to the contractor and homeowner, thus allowing for the repairs to be completed post-closing with checks and balances on the cost and scope of the renovation. This loan works well for someone buying a home that needs an addition, someone buying a home that needs just general cosmetic work like painting and scraping, and even possibly a home that needs a new kitchen

A FAMILY LOOKING TO PURCHASE, ESPECIALLY A FIRST-TIME HOME BUYER, DOESN’T HAVE THE RESOURCES IN MOST CASES FOR THE BASIC PAINTING, SCRAPING OF THE FLOORS, LET ALONE POSSIBLE WINDOW AND ROOF REPLACEMENT.

and updated bathrooms etc. It also works for someone purchasing a foreclosure or a home needing a “gut renovation.” It is very versatile. This loan is also excellent for someone who lives in a home that needs renovation, but cannot take cash-out of

their home in a traditional refinance or HELOC (Home Equity Line Of Credit) because the value of the home may be too low. Because this loan uses an after-improved value to base the financing amount, it is a great loan for any minor or major renovations or additions.

In conclusion, this rehab mortgage loan is a great loan for a purchaser or for a refinance. Although it has its pros and cons, like any other loan or decision on how or if to finance renovations, it is an option that begs to be explored more deeply.

NE WS & VIE WS

MONSEYREBRANDED Last week we asked you to share how you add value to your product instead of lowering the price. Here is one of the many replies business owners shared: Can I Trust You?

How things changed

How you can change it?

From the beginning of our lives we are taught to be suspicious. Don’t trust a stranger. Never tell someone that Mommy is not home. When someone is kind to you, you tell yourself that you must be his charity case. We’re constantly suspecting people to want to hurt us, or at least not to want what’s best for us.

In the early days, before the industrial explosion, consumers bought directly from a person; the meat from Herschel, the fish from Earl, the shoes from Shlomo. Shimon was their water carrier, Harvey the tailor. Their providers lived within a short distance of their home. They probably schmoozed in shul over schnapps, met in the park, and shared in each other’s simchas. At the end of the day they were good friends. Buying directly from the person they were acquainted with, they knew they can trust one another to provide them with best quality and prices.

There are two ways to build trust. Time or Honesty

It takes us humans a long time to build solid relationships. It takes us a long time and a lot of consistency to turn our natural suspicion into trust. The foundation of every relationship is trust. Can I trust you to respect me? Can I trust you to look out for me? Can I trust you to continue this relationship even if you know my flaws? It’s all about trust. Not surprisingly, trust is also the binding factor between any consumer-provider relationship. Can I trust that your price is correct? Can I trust that you’re selling me a product that you believe in? Can I trust you that you will not misinform me?

But as the economy changed, the owners of stores and businesses slowly withdrew to the comfort of their offices, their face being replaced by operating officers and then managers, represented by salesmen and customer service employees. Now when you walk inside, you’re shopping from nobody and you are a nobody. You don’t trust.

Known for campaigns that are as memorable to consumers as their profits are to clients, Arrow Group has been one of the leading catalysts to the changes in the Monsey business landscape.

If you can withstand the test of time and remain consistent, naturally the community will come to trust you- but that can take a long time- and you may not have so much to spare. Or you can build it with honesty, by being open and upfront. Honesty is the fast lane to build trust. Which route do you want to take? Ponder that. Next week we’ll discuss the practical applications of how to build trust- fast.

Until next week,

NEWS & VIEWS NEW SQUARE COMMUNITY MOURNS PETIRAH OF VILLAGE MAYOR

Rabbi Mates Friesel a”h, Niftar at Age 91.

newly formed Village of New Square. To his fellow residents he was a person to turn to when in need of assistance, be it of a personal or legal nature. Rabbi Friesel saw his primary role as one of doing chesed for others.

This past Shabbos, the New Square community lost one of its founders and its longtime mayor with the petirah of Reb Mates Friesel, a”h. The levaya was held late Motzaei Shabbos. The aron was carried from the main Beis Medrash in New Square to the Beis Hachayim at the edge of the village. The niftar was 91 years old and enjoyed the rare merit of seeing four generations of descendants continue in his ways. In addition to being counted among the original settlers in what then was an isolated outpost, Rabbi Friesel also served as the village’s only mayor since its incorporation in 1961. Rabbi Friesel was born in the town of Tsanz, Poland in 1924. He was a teenager at the time of the Nazi takeover, and he suffered through the worst of the Holocaust. After arriving in America, he became a chassid of the late Skvere Rebbe, Grand Rabbi Yakov Yosef Twersky, who founded the New Square community. Rabbi Friesel supported his family through a travel agency he owned in Manhattan, while accepting the position of mayor of the

The village was often embattled by hostile elements in the surrounding communities during its early years. Rabbi Friesel’s steady and calm leadership, under the constant guidance of the Skvere Rebbe, helped the village pull through many difficulties. Along the way, Rabbi Friesel earned the respect and friendship of the many politicians with whom he came in contact. The mayorship remained in Friesel’s hands right up to his passing, for a nearly unmatched 52 years. This was chiefly because he ran unopposed in every election. In recent years the mayor’s increasing infirmity led to most of his official duties being taking over by the deputy mayor, Reb Yisroel Spitzer. Rabbi Spitzer describes his relationship with Rabbi Friesel as a warm one. Rockland Emergency Services Coordinator Gordon

Wren Jr., who often dealt with Rabbi Friesel in the course of his work, cited one meeting Rabbi Friesel had with President Jimmy Carter on his presidential airplane as proof of Rabbi Friesel’s influence. Wren commented, “That showed how much political reach he had as mayor of the community to meet with the president of the United States. He rarely spoke publicly. He was a pioneer of the village.” Last week, Spitzer visited Rabbi Friesel in the hospital to bid him a final farewell. He said of him, “He was my mentor. As much as I learned from him, I didn’t learn enough. He gave me a very thoughtful farewell and all types of blessings.” He also described Rabbi Friesel as a “humble person who put the community and individuals first.” Reb Shlomo Koenig, trustee of Kaser Village, said of Rabbi Friesel, “He was a nice man and he had a way of talking to people. He accomplished things in a positive manner, not for himself but to help build his community.” Rabbi Friesel leaves behind a large family with four generations that have all followed in his footsteps. His sons and grandsons count among them several Dayanim and numerous leading Mechanchim in the United States, Europe and Eretz Yisroel. His warm guidance will be sorely missed.
