TALK OF TOWN

I have to compliment you on a publication that outperforms all others I’ve seen. Every detail is beyond gorgeous. All articles and ads are absolutely amazing. I have one comment or suggestion.  The lettering of the reading material is a bit hard to read. I think the font or color of print MUST be stronger than the background it’s on. I hope I am explaining it correctly. I feel I have to strain my eyes to see all written information. (It may be my age, eyesight, or refusal to wear eyeglasses, perhaps.)

I would like to thank you for your great publication!! The hard work that goes into such a quality publication is much appreciated.

The Monsey View

If I may, I would like to note one issue I have; it’s pretty difficult to read the articles, especially where there’s a photo on the background. I would appreciate if you can make the font thicker and bolder.

YOURVOICE

YOURVOICE Replies to the Tutoring Dilemma:

Dear Third Grade Mom, I was compelled to write to you after reading your letter in The Monsey View. I am a learning disabilities and reading specialist for over 24 years. I administrate a special education department for NYC Department of Education and I work as an education consultant and tutor for our Monsey children. I have, Baruch Hashem, met with tremendous success. Educational support is successful, because when children achieve success they are happy, their self-esteem improves and school becomes a positive experience. All this can be achieved in a fun, loving and supportive manner.   Do not feel bad about giving your daughter that support! She will thank you. ~Yocheved Groll, M.S. SBL  P.S. I love The Monsey View and look forward to every new edition. Dear Concerned Mother, Thank you for bringing this issue to the forefront. I understand your struggle well. I’m awaiting the responses, as I am faced with similar decisions which I would like to receive guidance on. ~ Concerned Too

/ THE MO NS E Y V IE W

Replies to the Garbage Issue: I’ve just read a letter from an old Monsey resident telling the “newcomers” they should remember what garbage they left in the city. As a “newcomer” myself I have to say that in the city you will almost never see garbage flying around! If there’s garbage in front of your house, even a snack bag, you get fined. And there are big garbage cans on every street corner for passerby to put garbage in. I was bothered by the letter because it’s not true. So please don’t put the blame on the “newcomers.” ~Anonymous Dear Editor, I agree with the latest letter writers with reference to the garbage. Please focus on the beauty of our Town. In addition, instead of complaining, do something. For instance, I do not have kids at home anymore, yet my lawn always has wrappers and plates/cups on it blown from the neighbors. So what do I do? I go outside and clean it up. SIMPLE. Next in line is our beautiful Lake Suzanne. Please bubbies zaydies, mommies, tatties and others: when you direct your family members to throw the excess crumbs to the ducks (which actually might not even be legal), please remind them to first take the bread pieces out of the shopping bag. The ducks do not know how to do this. If you pass by the lake and look down, you will see shopping bags full of

food. As funny as this sounds, it is really not funny at all. And even though I can clean up the mess on my lawn, I cannot clean up the lake. Finally, the suggestion of folding the boxes is excellent and that is the way it was originally supposed to be collected. B”H for our children. B”H for our garbage. Let’s keep everything in proper perspective. ~ R. Perl Kudos to the first lady who wrote about the garbage all over Monsey. She is right in every way. We are weekenders from Boro Park and it is true, the garbage there is a disgrace as well. The same is here. There is no excuse at all of any kind - no matter how big Ke”h families are or that they have no maids - for the boxes and bags on lawns and curbs that fill our beautiful town. Yes, we appreciate the greenery and fresh air, but garbage has no right to be a sight to behold. Thousands of nonJews pass our streets and what is the view they have? Each one of us must be a little more careful and bribe a small child with a cookie to pick up litter. Let us keep a clean Monsey and Boro Park. Thank you. ~Anonymous Note: Please be aware that the references to “Route 306” are not a target for residents of that specific street; rather chosen as a main road of Monsey.

We would love to hear your opinion! To reply to a question or to submit a new question, email comments@themonseyview.com or fax to 845-600-8483.

Continued from page 16

Most notably - the deal completely eases any restrictions after a mere number of years - meaning Iran has all its money, and merely needs to wait a few years to chalila implement its oft-stated goal of the annihilation of Eretz Yisrael. And this is if it abides by the deal. If it doesn’t - well, Iran has a period of 24 days from when the international community requests an inspection of its nuclear facilities until it has to allow access. That is more than enough time for it to cover up its nefarious preparations. As well, during the time that the deal was being negotiated, Iranians were chanting on the streets “Death to America” and “Death to Israel.” That has to be significant. The only One Who can protect us is the Ribbono Shel Olam, but it does no one any service to misrepresent the true realities of our present galus. May you be zoche to report on the coming of Mashiach in the coming issue! ~ Tzipora Schiffer

Our News Editor Responds:

To The Monsey View:

Dear Tziporah,

I’d like to thank you for bringing us (the Monsey Viewers) such superquality, informative reading material. Especially the column “Becoming Weigh Smarter” by Esty Weiss, which will hopefully make us “way smarter.” The insightful and sensible info is a big eye-opener to us all. Please continue to bring us such useful information and more.

Thank you for your letter. We always appreciate feedback from our readers and value your opinion. Our intention with the news article was only to report on the very basic details of the deal and let our readers come to their own conclusions. Like you mentioned in your letter, “Lev malachim v’sarim byad Hashem.” Whatever the outcome of this deal is, it was orchestrated by the One Above. May we be zoche to the geulah sheleima before the deal goes into effect. And may these days of aveilus be turned into days of simcha.

Thanks, ~A Monsey Viewer

Sincerely, Ruchel Lebovits

GO SOLAR BY: PEARL STAUBER

At first glance, some perceive it as a modernday, scientific breakthrough. Others may perceive it as outdated. And still others see it as a new-age revolution that will pave the way for the future. Whatever your perception, solar energy has been around for many years, and new innovations in engineering, coupled with great financial incentives, are now bringing this marvelous harmony of nature and technology to the average consumer in rapidly increasing numbers. In fact, research suggests that more solar panels were installed in just 18 months of 2012-2013 than had been installed in the entire 30 years prior. Experts predict that by 2016, someone will be installing solar panels every 80 seconds! At the forefront of this solar technology is a company called SolarCity. Founded in 2006, SolarCity was already the leading provider of residential solar power in California in 2007, its first year of business. In 2013 it was ranked the number one residential installer in the U.S. Currently, one in every three residential solar power systems in the U.S. are through SolarCity. Furthermore, SolarCity is backed by high profile

investors such as Google, Bank of America, and Merrill Lynch, making it financially sound, secure, and highly recognized in the global market. Naturally, a growing trend such as this piques the curiosity of our readership, and therefore, we caught up with Volvy Kraus of Go Solar. With his strong background in dealing with energy suppliers, he has incredibly won a ticket into this solar giant, SolarCity. MV: What inspired you to create Go Solar? Mr. Kraus: I have dealt with many third party energy suppliers over the years, trying to find the best, most cost-effective option for my clients. What I have found over the years, was that most companies either have fluctuating rates, or have a fixed rate for a short introductory period, after which the rates soar even higher than other utility companies. In my quest to find a better solution, I came across the concept of solar energy. What struck me was the low fixed rate in the long term. When choosing solar energy, one locks in a 20-year fixed rate that is lower than any utility company.

MV: How long has solar energy for personal or commercial use been around? Mr. Kraus: It may surprise people, but the concept of converting solar energy into electricity was first discovered in 1839, nearly two centuries ago, by Alexandre Edmond Becquerel. MV: Why hasn’t the usage of solar energy gained momentum until now? Mr. Kraus: The major setback to installing a solar energy system is the cost. It costs about $20,000 to $30,000 to purchase. Eventually it pays off, as there are no monthly utility fees, but many people cannot afford such a hefty investment. Additionally, the purchasing of a solar energy system requires special permits, paperwork and technical know-how. Now, there is a better alternative to buying a solar energy system - leasing it. Through SolarCity, Go Solar now offers to install a solar energy system at no cost, for a low monthly fee that is fixed for twenty years, regardless of consumption. The fee promises to be significantly less than the average utility bill, so going solar is a no brainer!

Go Solar will take care of the entire setup process - permits, paperwork and installation, at no extra cost. Once the system is in place, it is backed by a warranty for the duration of the lease period, and costs for replacement parts and maintenance are all inclusive. Additionally, the company will be monitoring to ensure that the system is functioning properly and efficiently throughout. All the customer needs to pay is the fixed monthly rate, which will be lower than any utility company. MV: That sounds brilliant! How does solar technology save people money? Mr. Kraus: As opposed to conventional utility costs, solar energy does not require delivery of energy. Utility companies require power lines to transmit electricity, a costly process that is completely eliminated with solar energy. In addition to the lowerthan-standard monthly utility bill at the start, O&R Utilities continually increases their rates. Based on projected rate increases, the average consumer will save thousands of dollars by going solar.

Another way to get returns on solar energy is through various incentives, such as tax credits (as much as $5,000), made available by the government in an effort to encourage the usage of renewable energy. Solar energy completely eliminates the toxic carbon emissions and pollution associated with generating electricity, which the U.S. Government is committed to reduce, and creates incentives for doing so. MV: Is there any risk in delaying the transition to solar energy? Mr. Kraus: In fact, there is. In late 2016, the federal government will reduce its subsidies currently paid to solar energy providers, and therefore the cost of installing a new system will likely increase thereafter. It is as good as it gets right now! MV: What happens in the winter, when sunlight is scarce? Mr. Kraus: On a sunny day, especially in the summertime, the solar panels obtain a lot of energy from the sun, often more than what is being consumed. The unused energy flows back to the utility grid, and the meter

literally spins backward! In the winter months, or whenever consumption is higher than energy available, O&R Utilities will give you that energy back. The exchange is seamless and automatic. If at the end of winter you still have unused energy, O&R Utilities will pay you for the value of the energy you supplied them. MV: Have you ever installed solar panels before, and if yes, what feedback have you received? Mr. Kraus: Go Solar has installed many solar energy systems in the Monroe area, and is now expanding their services to include the Monsey area. All of our dealings have been positive and satisfactory, and we have earned a reputation for honesty and reliability. I have recently checked in with one of my clients, who was an ideal candidate for solar energy. He lives in a one-family home with plenty of sun exposure. He reported that his utility bills have been slashed from $400 per month to $200 since using solar energy, and he couldn’t be happier!

You can save as much as $5,000 in tax credits by Going Solar

The sun is always shining; we just need to let the sunshine in!

FUN SUN FACTS: •

NASA relies heavily on solar energy for its space stations to have electricity in outer space.

The Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, FL built a massive, 10-megawatt solar plant on premises that provides electricity to 1,000 homes, in addition to the space center, and reduces carbon emissions by more than 227,000 tons.

The biggest power plants in America produce about 1,000 megawatts of electricity. It would take 116 billion power plants to match the power that the sun shines down on us in one day.

The sun continually pelts the earth with 35,000 times the amount of energy we now use on the entire planet. It is enough to power 2880 trillion light bulbs every hour!

Because our source of electricity is in a power plant miles away, electricity must pass through giant transmission lines to reach each destination. During the process, as much as 30% of the energy generated is lost just by transporting it. At the same time, tons of carbon emissions are created for a portion of energy that will not even be used. Solar power eliminates this waste and is therefore considered supremely efficient.

Calculating first-year savings is fairly straightforward because current utility rates are easy to determine. Projecting long-term savings however requires estimating utility rates over the next 20 years.

BECOMINGWEIGHSMARTER by Esty Weiss

Is “Calories In, Calories Out” the Whole Story? Most people would believe that if you eat more calories than you burn, you will store the excess as body fat, whereas if you eat fewer calories than you burn, you will lose fat; simple mathematics, right? Well, this is not exactly true!

Let’s explore this issue even further - if, for example, you weigh 200 pounds and you want to drop weight, then you might decide to eat 1,000 calories a day for the next year. That would result in a 292,000 calorie deficit, which would equal to a 200-pound weight-loss after the year would you then disappear? A Simple Explanation: When a calorie deficit is first introduced, weightloss generally occurs, just as the numbers would dictate. However, it never takes long before weight-loss slows or stops completely. Why does this happen?

If fat loss is as black and white Thanks to Hashem’s infinite as “calories in versus calories wisdom in the way He creout,” then how do you explain ated us, our bodies have a why some overweight people complex and infallible series eat less than lean people, yet of defense mechanisms to they still struggle to lose an ounce? AddiIt’s physiologically impossible to tionally, how is it pospermanently lose fat with very low sible for some people calorie diets. to eat only 1,000-1,200 calories a day without protect us from starvation. losing very much weight at It’s physiologically imposall, sometimes not even lossible to permanently lose fat ing any weight? with very low calorie diets;

as soon as the body senses a food shortage, these defense mechanisms start to kick in. The Starvation Response: You can survive weeks without food. You may have heard stories about how people were lost in the mountains or wilderness for weeks without food or with very little food (only water). What makes it possible to stay alive under such conditions, is the remarkable way Hashem gave our bodies the ability to slow down the rate of calorie burning so we don’t starve to death.

HE ALTH&W ELLNE SS When you slash your calories too drastically, your body will automatically go into starvation mode. There is nothing you can do to stop this from happening! Your body has no way of knowing if you’re trying to reduce your weight or if you’re stuck someplace with very little food. Its job is to make sure to reserve all its energy and slow down the burning of calories for your survival. 4 reasons I Hope You Will Never Want to Count Calories Again:

1. The first thing that occurs during a calorie short-

age is a decrease in your metabolic rate. The lower your calories, the slower your metabolism becomes. Simply put, when you eat less, your body burns less!

2. As I mentioned last week, one of the most dev-

astating effects of a low-calorie diet is a loss of muscle! Once the starvation alarm is triggered, your body begins to look for ways to conserve energy. Muscle is metabolically active tissue. It’s very easy for your body to convert muscle into glucose (glucose is used for energy). This includes using skeletal muscles, internal organs, or even your heart muscle if needed!

3. Low-calorie diets trigger increased appetite and cravings because, when your body is in starvation mode, it will release the hunger hormone called ghrelin in an attempt to get you to eat more food. The hunger and cravings can become so strong that you become ravenous; you walk around with hunger pangs and all you can think of is food, food, food!

Dini Wigs is having a

lipase (LPL). When your calories are dropped too low, your body will produce “more” LPL and less fat-burning enzymes, which means that when you don’t eat enough, your body chemistry changes and it actually makes it easier for your body to store fat!

I hope after reading this, you will attempt to experience weight-loss without restricting calories, and yes, it is possible to do so with a fat-burning food plan rather than through starving yourself! Have a healthy, weight-less week, Esty Weiss

Stone Duvid’s Story So I sat down at a corner in Karlin, and now I had it all to myself, now that the kollel men have gone in search of a new one. There was an old hat sitting atop a seforim shank; why did someone leave it here? We wear hats until they come apart at the seams. I could see it had been sitting here a few days, based on the thin layer of dust that covered it. So nobody was here with me, even if someone’s hat was. Perhaps he’s one of those people, like my new mechutan, who has enough homes that one hat seems insignificant. I found Turkish coffee, and I made myself a cup of mud. The water couldn’t

So our month is covered, and I know Hashem has my back. Even if His way of working in my life is a check in Bank Hapoalim sent by people who refuse His way. Debt is the worst, and I never want it. Never, even as I marry off the children. My father knew all the gemachim the way he knew the names of his children. I know them, too, but only because I now pay them back for the debts my father could have never paid back in his lifetime, ten lira at a time. by Chany Rosengarten

My children have gone hungry. I can say it with pride and with shame, a mix that precludes just stating the facts and knowing it fully. I couldn’t feed my children.

Kollel had never been more than a plug for the money leak. There was the house, and cheder, and kerosene. And milk and bread. But when it came to providing lunch, and a bite before sleep, every day for thirty days a month, not to mention Shabbos, I didn’t always have. And I would never, ever borrow. But we always scraped by. And the kids might have had a perpetual gnaw in the pit down their throat. This is how they grew. Malka is now fully grown. I’m required to give Malka’la 40 percent of a dirah in Mattersdorf. This is the fact. I just lost my kollel income, which we relied on for the little food we have. Another fact.

RELAX... There were options; the things others have done in my situation were plenty. Some went to America to collect and create contacts, for the next round. Some took on work. Some borrowed, which I wouldn’t. Going to America? It seemed like such an ambitious, difficult obstacle to overcome. Borrow, again, for a ticket. Go there, alone. Schnor contact lists from people who have charted the new continent before me. Find gitte Yidden who would host me. Who would show me around? Who would speak my language? Who knew if I’d be successful? Enough to even cover the exorbitant plane ticket costs. I had never left Eretz Yisrael yet. I would rather work at menial, degrading labor and continue to live the life I’d always known. So that left me with working. Working. When would I learn? Daven? Shmooze? When? But I could work. And someone who needed able-bodied laborers would pay. And the money would go to marry off Malka. Maybe, just maybe, there would be enough to take some off for a chicken once a month.

I raked my hands over the seforim lined up the wall, like I was leaving the succah and kissing its walls goodbye. I’d be back, but never as before. The street was hot. The midday sun sneered at his underlings, who made their way out into a direct encounter with him. I cupped my eyes and looked directly up at the sun, allowing it to warm my nose. Nothing will stop me now from doing what I know I have to, I thought. Ha! How does one get a job? I didn’t know. So I opened the door to the first business I found, a bookbinder. “I’m looking for work. Do you have?” Velvel Benet peered up. “I work fine myself,” he said, his white, long beard unfolding as he lifted his head from his work. “But Rachamim Gal told me he is expanding. People are buying machines.” Velvel’s nachas was apparent as he savored the advances in today’s world. “Talk to him. He’s over at Haturim.” I left the store, and hurried

Rachamim was home when I got to his store, so I went around the building and up the stairs. He welcomed me into his kitchen, where his wife was frying a schwarma of fresh chicken ends. His house smelled spicy and bountiful, so different than the hopes of food that occasionally sent an aroma through my doorway. He was in good cheer when he bid me to sit and poured me a glassful of mint-infused water.

He wasn’t offering me any help here. His face was a façade of well-fed happiness and Sephardi ambition. I thought quickly. I still couldn’t guess. My mind started a shouting fest. “Ask for a lot. Let him negotiate you down. Ask in moderation, if you want the job. You’re a 40-year-old newbie at what Rachamim has done all his life. Do you want to enjoy his success?” “Give me what you would give any Arab, who needs to marry off his Jewish daughter in 12 months but has nothing to give.” Rachamim laughed heartily. His wife smiled. “You’re hired,” they both said together.

“I’m handy,” I said confidently, biting back an “I think.” I thought more. “I’m willing to shlep.” What else? “I’ll do anything,” I told him.

Rachamim told me how people are buying gas ranges, refrigerators. New homes are being built with more and stronger outlets and the old ones constantly rewired. “It’s a new world out there. Now is the time to be selling electronics. Soon every home will run on these machines. If they aren’t already.”

“And how much do you want?”

He took me down to his storeroom and unlocked the

door. There, he showed me around. The new machines, their shiny finish smooth to the touch. Their interior mechanisms found in a tangle on the underbelly of these beautiful items. I looked around for a long time. I would lug these into homes. Sell them. Fix them. Deliver them.

THE SPA

It was one thirty. I told him I’d be back at three. He went upstairs to his royal meal while I trudged home. Bookbinding, tzitzis knotting, seforim printing, tefillin making, I had imagined myself working with the things I knew and loved. But Rachamim hired me, so that’s the work I would do.

THE SALON

Only… I didn’t want to do this work. Passing by Kaminetz, I wanted to go inside. Maybe I didn’t have to do this. My earlier conviction fizzled and turned flat. I took the stairs into yeshivah. Maybe I could find a bochur who needed extra help. Let Rachamim break his own back, then come home to rejuvenate over a hot meal and water chilled in his own fridge. I just couldn’t do this.

This week’s food and family menu serves up some further inspiration for the remainder of the Nine Days. The Nine Days leads us into Tisha B’Av, the saddest day on the Yiddish calendar, the day the Beis Hamikdosh was destroyed. I don’t want to take the focus off the seriousness of the day, but after a twenty-five hour fast, we can all use something light and filling to break the fast on. The recipes that I present to you this week are also ideal for your oisfast meal. I’d like to wish all of you an easy and meaningful fast. May the Beis Hamikdosh be rebuilt speedily in our days. Amein.

Flounder Roll-Ups with Mushroom Stuffing

Sweet Cheese Crisps

INSTRUCTIONS These sweet turnovers are absolutely delicious and disappear with startling speed! Whenever I serve them, I am inevitably asked for the recipe. They are so versatile; use them as an entrée or dessert; when in-laws or friends come over, or when you’re hosting an intimate brunch; for a summer afternoon treat or a winter Melava Malka… they’re always a winner!

INGREDIENTS

Preheat oven to 350°. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. Mix all the filling ingredients. Place one heaping teaspoon of the mixture in the center of each piece of dough. Fold in half to form a triangle and pinch the edges tightly closed. Place on the lined cookie sheets. Brush with beaten egg. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden.

One pack puff pastry squares, package of 36 (preferably Yitzy’s) Filling

Topping

1 ¼ lb. farmer’s cheese

8 oz. sour cream

2 eggs

2 Tbsp. sugar

½ c. sugar

3 Tbsp. milk

1 ½ tsp. flour

Mix the sour cream, sugar, and milk with a spoon. If it is too thick to dribble, add a drop more milk at a time, taking care that it shouldn’t be too runny. Drizzle the topping sauce over the turnovers and garnish with blueberries.

2 dashes cinnamon 2 tsp. orange juice 1 egg, beaten, for brushing the crisps

2 onions, diced

30 Tam Tam original flavor

1 8-oz. container fresh white mushrooms, diced coarsely 2 stalks celery, sliced small

crackers,

scant ½ tsp. salt ¼ tsp. black pepper ¼ tsp. garlic powder

INSTRUCTIONS Prepare the Stuffing Sauté the onions in oil until translucent, approximately 10-15 minutes. Add the diced mushrooms and celery and sauté for an additional approximate 25 minutes, slightly covered, until the mushrooms are totally soft and browned. In the bowl of a food processor fitted with an “S” blade, coarsely crush the Tam Tam crackers. Add the sauté mixture and the spices and pulse until you achieve a stuffing consistency. (If the mixture looks too dry, add a drop of oil until the texture looks right.) Prepare the Sauce

1 ¾ tsp. cornstarch

Sauté the onions in oil until translucent, approximately 10-15 minutes. Add the sliced mushrooms and sauté for additional 25 minutes, slightly covered. Dilute the cornstarch in the water. Pour it into the pan, add the spices, and bring to a boil. Lower the flame to medium and cook until the sauce has thickened, approximately 10-15 minutes.

¼ tsp. black pepper

SEASON

Stuffing

1 ¼ c. water, room temperature

½ tsp. salt

2 tsp. sour cream ½ tsp. vanilla sugar

These roll-ups are gourmet! They do require a bit more time to prepare; however the results are worth the effort. Elegant and scrumptious, I’m sure you’ll receive 5 star reviews. You can prepare the stuffing and the sauce a day in advance and assemble the roll-ups right before baking.

FO OD &FAMILY

To Assemble Preheat oven to 350°. Line a baking pan with parchment paper. Place a heaping spoonful of the stuffing at the end of each fillet and roll up. Spread mayonnaise very thinly on top of each rollup and sprinkle lightly with salt and black pepper. Place in prepared baking pan and bake for 30 minutes. Spoon some sauce over each roll-up when serving.

Tuna Patties

For a perfect supper, serve these simple and delicious tuna patties with a mound of steaming, hot milchige mashed potatoes and a light lettuce-based vegetable salad. This was actually the main plate I served upon breaking the fast of Shiva Assar b’Tammuz, the entrée being the sweet cheese crisps featured in this issue. It was the perfect menu, one which I highly recommend as a Tisha B’av oisfast supper.

INGREDIENTS 2 6-oz. cans solid white tuna 2 6-oz. cans chunk light tuna 4 eggs ¾ cup homemade breadcrumbs 1 small onion, very finely diced 1 heaping Tbsp. mayonnaise 1 flat tsp. salt ¼ tsp. black pepper ½ tsp. paprika oil for frying

INSTRUCTIONS Slightly drain the tuna, and mash very well. Mix it together with the rest of the ingredients. Heat oil in a large pan until it reaches frying temperature. Using a large scoop, scoop patties into the pan and flatten them a bit with the back of a spoon. Fry for approximately 8-9 minutes on each side, until golden brown and cooked through. Yields approximately 12 patties.

How do I build & maintain a healthy credit? 0% APR? Miles and points value?

By: Sandy Eller

Dear Councilwoman Logan, Thank you for providing the opportunity to voice some questions and concerns I’d like to have addressed. Firstly, because I don’t own a car, I walk to do all my errands. Whenever I arrive at the dreaded Route 59 crossing by Evergreen, I become tense and anxious. You see, I have four little kids, and it’s almost impossible to get across the street safely. Even though the light is red, and the white crossing man shows up, cars can still turn, and it makes it very, very nerve-wracking to cross. Instead of only catering to the cars, can you try to make it comfortable and safe for the pedestrians, as well? Also, I live on Decatur, and what goes on there is absolutely crazy. It’s a tragedy waiting to happen! Decatur and its parallel streets are long, straight streets with no lights. Drivers speed down these roads at very high speeds,and there are no sidewalks or speed bumps on these abnormally narrow streets! There has been a huge influx of children on the block due to the new building projects.  Please do something to keep us safe! Thanks, B. Ostreicher

Dear Mrs. Ostreicher,

Over the last few weeks I have gotten calls about everything from readers of The Monsey View. I have been asked about street crossings, garbage pickups, road issues and other problems. I am addressing them one by one, in the order in which they came in. When we get requests involving street crossings, we go to the police department, and they send someone to do a traffic study on the complaint. Coming from Evergreen with a baby in tow and groceries-and then having to cross that intersection safely-can be a concern. I will have to send police out there, so that they can come back to me with their recommendations. Once I have those, I will be able to better deal with the situation. As for Decatur, you are right that there is a problem, because when they were building the housing that is there, they really did not take into account that we would have a community that would walk as much as it does, not just on Shabbos, but every day. Many residents, especially women with babies, walk every single day-and many of them don’t drive or even have a driver’s license. Who wants to use a cab when the weather is nice? You want to

be outside with the children. We are going to come out there and see if we can include the area in a sidewalk project. Every year, the town spends thousands of dollars on sidewalks, and Decatur needs both new sidewalks and streetlights. In the past year alone, we spent about $300,000 on sidewalks on Old Nyack Turnpike and another $500,000 on sidewalks on Route 306 in the Wesley Kosher area. Those improvements were made based on requests from residents. Those are your tax dollars at work, improving our infrastructure. Our most important job is to maintain the safety of our residents and sidewalks, which can only be installed in warmer weather, from the spring through the fall. That is a very high priority to us.

NEWS & VIEWS FROM BONDAGE TO LIBERATION - THE KUPATH EZRAH ANNUAL DINNER

This Sunday Kupath Ezrah feted its 19th Annual Asifa at the Atrium. The event this year was in commemoration of the Kedoshim that died in the Holocaust AK”H. The theme of the Asifa was “From Bondage to Liberation.” Rabbi Feivel Mashinsky, president of the Kupah, opened the event with the large crowd of supporters by sharing the programs, projects and activities Kupath Ezrah is

involved with. Besides for the check stipends to hundreds of families which amount to over $100,000 monthly, Rabbi Mashinsky listed many of their efforts to help the needy families in the most dignified and discreet manner.

Rabbi Y.Y. Jacobson, a worldrenowned lecturer, dean of The Yeshiva Net.org, was the keynote speaker. He mesmerized the assembled with stories of greatness of Tzadikim and simple Jews who risked their lives and limbs to serve Hashem under the most harrowing situations. He quoted the words of the holy Rebbe Rav Klonimus Kalman of Piesetzne HY”D with which he infused in his chasidim and talmidim: “The ultimate purpose in life is to do a favor for another Jew.” Kupath Ezrah personifies that quote. Their burning desire to help a Jew with dignity and compassion is their way they serve Am Yisroel. It is charities like this that bring the coming of Moshiach closer.

Candlelit vigils were held, a makeshift memorial was set up and victims were remembered after four Marines were killed and three injured, one later succumbing to his injuries, in a horrific shooting at a military recruiting center in Chattanooga, Tennessee last Thursday. Witnesses said that they heard dozens of shots as the suspected gunman, identified as 24-yearold Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez, opened fire on

two military installations, sending people running for cover. Abdulazeez, of Hixson, Tenn., was killed in a firefight with responding police officers after the rampage. As a response to the shooting, the governors of at least a half dozen states ordered National Guardsmen to be armed. Security for the recruiting centers has come under scrutiny since the Tennessee shootings, because some people believe they are too vulnerable. This attack has been the fourth in the last seven year, and several

attempts against such centers have also been thwarted. But Military officials said they are not looking to heighten security. Brian Lepley, a spokesman for U.S. Army Recruiting Command, said, “We can’t have barricaded centers. We can’t have places where we recruit young men and women that look like a fortress. We have to have a connection to the American people.” Meanwhile, Tennessee Congressman Scott DesJarla said he has drafted legislation entitled the “Enhancing Continued on Page 66

PICADILLY IN ITALY A Photographic Tour

Ancient Rome | Colosseum

Michelstadt, Germany | Time for Reflection

Visiting ancient Rome is like being dropped in color in a world of sepia. All around you crumbling edifices evoke an age long lost to the annals of time. In the images shown here, a touch of sepia added to reflect the feel of a bygone era. Tilting of the camera for thoughtful reflection, as though lost in thought.

No picture can portray the absolute reversal of time that visiting the resting place of the Baal Shem of Michelstadt awakens in you. You are transported to the pages of stories you read growing up, where traveling by wagon pulled by horse on the cobblestones was the travel of the day. The stones are weathered and worn, but the sun beats down relentlessly, the grass grows nonetheless, the trees blossom fully….such is the cycle of life. I photographed the stones and trees equally to reflect that feeling.

Shul | Tempio Maggiore

Italian Alps | Dolomites

A world over, a generation removed, yet we all follow the path of our heritage. A siddur in hand, seated on a wood-worn bench, sunlight streaming in through the stained glass windows, you marvel how throughout the ages, while time hurtles onward, a shul is and always will be the mainstay of peace and survival. I photographed the nameplate on the seat near me; a connection to a fellow Yid. The bright rays of sunshine washed out the interior photos, but that’s what I will remember. The light.

An artist rendering a portrait of the Italian Alps would easily be accused of taking liberties with his brush. His colors too bright, his strokes too bold… But to behold the beauty before your eyes gives truth to the belief that there is only one Master of the world. It was a challenge to hold the camera and try to do justice to the sheer beauty that surrounds you. A fellow photographer pointed out the opportunities for framing the images. By keeping tree branches in the foreground, it gives some perspective to the view you behold. The rustic fence and unruly weeds give it away; the picture is all too real.

Venice | Grand Canal

Pantheon | Piazza della Rotonda

The waterways of Venice are familiar to all. The gondolas and canals are photographed spectacularly. As a repeat visitor, I endeavored to capture the city in a more mundane way. I saw vibrant flowerpots hanging from windowsills, gondoliers sans cap drooping in the heat, and the blazing sun warming an undiscovered canal. The images are shot while in motion, as the jostling crowds leave little time for perfecting a pose. A gentle blurring in the main photo portrays the vibrancy that is Venice.

The whole of an image is the sum of its parts. Rounding the corner in the narrow streets of Rome you notice the remnants that time has forgotten, a once powerful regime now turned to dust. Cropping these photos to great detail reveals the glory that once was. Keeping the image whole is contrary to the ruin and devastation; showing only parts is more congruent with the feeling of a city broken.

Pitigliano | Little Jerusalem

Postcard in a Pocket | Random Shots

A pocket of a town hidden in the hills of Tuscany. A short visit, but an “oh, so insightful!” revelation. Walking through the narrow corridors of the charming city, my eye was drawn to this story instantly. Steps going up, steps going down. Isn’t that much like life? My favorite pictures of the entire journey.

Yes, it really does lean. Two photos side by side to show the extent of the bend. The upright image of the tower was manually rotated and cropped to enhance the visual of the actual leaning tower. In my exuberance to capture this marvel from many angles, I neglected to experience the lean and climb the tower as countless others did. I’ll have to rely on the adage which says, “seeing is believing.”

NEWS & VIEWS Continued from Page 61 Safety at Military Installations Act” that would repeal bans on military personnel carrying firearms on military recruitment facilities and base. Wisconsin U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson, the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, said he plans to introduce a similar bill. “By disarming the Armed Forces, gun-free policies at military facilities have made our men and women in uniform easy targets for terrorist attacks,” Johnson said in a statement. Although terrorism is suspected, the shooters motives remain unclear. A US Law Enforcement official was

quoted as saying that they had “no information at this time indicating that this incident was either inspired, directed, or assisted by individuals associated with an identified designated foreign terrorist organization. However, the FBI investigation into his activities while overseas and the nature and extent of his affiliation with FTOs (foreign terrorist organizations) is ongoing. We have no information to date to suggest that these trips were associated with any nefarious or violent extremist activities.” The suspect, who has been a US Citizen since 2003, had traveled to Jordan on at least four separate occasions, the latest trip

taking place between April and November of 2014. The FBI continues to urge anyone with information to contact them or state and local law enforcement agencies with any tips.

SUMMER FRUITS

by Pearl Stauber

The famous adage, “Good things come to those who wait,” holds true for summer fruits. Summer fruits undergo a lengthy process of growth and rest, with tender interventions by the gardener to ensure optimal results, only to emerge in the spring and summer months. Although the season for summer fruits is all too short-lived, their flavor and fragrance make the wait more than worthwhile. While each of the summer fruits has unique characteristics and offers its own punch of sweet and savory flavor, many are closely related. The most common summer fruits belong to the genus “Prunus,” which includes around 430 species of trees and shrubs. Some common species of Prunus are: apricots, cherries, nectarines, peaches and plums. During the winter months, the Prunus trees undergo a period of deep sleep, known as dormancy, to save their energy for the intense growing season ahead. The trees awaken in the spring and buds emerge. Once the buds are opened, they reveal flowers belonging to the Rose family (Rosaceae). The open flowers attract bees, who swarm to the flowers and pollinate them. After pollination, the flowers die. The dead pollinated flowers cultivate the growth of fruits in their stead. Apricots - Prunus Armeniaca The apricots are relatively early bloomers. They usually flower in April, but will be ready for harvest in May through July, depending on location and the individual tree. How to Pick:

• Choose apricots that are

• •

firm, yet slightly soft to touch, plump in appearance and possess a deep orange or yellow/orange color. Look for fruit that is unblemished, as apricots bruise easily. If no ripe apricots are available, place immature apricots in a paper bag, fold them over, and store at room temperature to speed up the ripening process.

Uses and Tips: • Their sweetness makes them popular for preserves or may be canned or dried, to be enjoyed all year round. For pre-

serves, sauces or in baking, overripe apricots will work fine, so if they are on sale, do not overlook them. They can also be enjoyed fresh in salads, desserts or in a bowl of cereal.

Nutrition Information: Apricots are rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Potassium, and Fiber.

Sweet Red Cherries - Prunus Avium The cherry emerges from the dead blossom as a hard, green blob. Over the course of three months, the cherry will grow in size. After this growth, its color will turn red. At its last stage, the color of the cherries will deepen, as their sweetness and flavor develop. How to Pick: • Look for fruits with deep, dark saturation. • Cherries should be firm.

Wrinkling near the stem means the cherries have sat at room temperature. They may be sweet, but are probably not at peak freshness.

Peaches and Nectarines - Prunus Persica and Prunus Persica Nectarina Peaches share fundamental characteristics with their bald counterparts, the nectarines. Although they are sold as separate fruits, nectarines are of the same species as peaches. Nectarines vary slightly genetically from peaches. That variation contributes to its smooth outer layer, as opposed to the fuzziness of the peach. Peaches and nectarines flower in early spring, and are typically ready for harvesting in May or June, but as late as September in some areas. How to Pick: • Peaches should have vibrant tone and color. Keep in mind, though, that sometimes a leaf was shielding part of the peach, so there might be parts of the fruit that received less sunlight, making that part lighter in color. Make sure those parts do not have green tones, an indicator that the peach was picked too early. • Squeeze the peach lightly, pressing on the shoulder and tip. If the peach starts to give, it is ripe and ready to eat. Firmer peaches may be preferred for salads, as they hold up better.

Uses and Tips: • Cherries can be frozen. Pit them if you wish, or keep them whole with stems intact. Spread them in a single layer on a baking sheet, freeze until firm, and then place in a bag or container. • Cherries are often used in pies, desserts and drinks.

Uses and Tips: • Because of their mellow flavor and slight tartness, peaches are widely enjoyed in cooking and baking. They add great flavor to salads and other dishes without overpowering the dish. They are often poached or roasted to increase flavor. • The aromatic properties of peaches consist of over 100 chemical compounds. Peach aroma is also a characteristic of some wines.

Nutrition Information: Cherries have tremendous health benefits. They are low in calories and rich in Vitamin C and antioxidants. They also contain Fiber, Potassium, Protein and Iron. They have anti-inflammatory agents and are used to treat inflammatory diseases such as arthritis. They also help prevent cancer and according a recent study, may even help prevent Alzheimer’s.

Peaches are low in calories, only 60 calories for a cup sliced peaches, and packed with nutrients. Peaches are an excellent source of Vitamin A and Vitamin C, and the cancer-fighting antioxidant, beta carotene. Nectarines offer similar nutritional value.

Nutrition Information:

Plums - Prunus Domestica Plums flower in the spring and are ready for harvest in June. Although it is the wildest of all summer fruits, the plum is a delicate fruit. In a good year, approximately 50% of blossoms will become plums. How to Pick: • A ripe plum will feel heavy in the palm of your hand, and should start to give when squeezed. • If the plum is too soft, it is probably overripe. • If plums are hard, they could be ripened in a brown paper bag at room temperature in two days. Uses and Tips: • Plums can be enjoyed fresh or preserved as jam, and is also used in pies and fruity desserts. • Plum juice can be fermented into plum wine or sweetened to make brandy. • Dried plums, or prunes, are known for their laxative effects and are commonly used to treat constipation. Nutrition Information: Plums are an excellent source of Vitamin A and Vitamin C, as well as Potassium and Fiber.

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 2 The Little House Later, when the work was finally done, Mamashe went in to help Babby prepare dinner, and Marishke went to attend to the cow and her calf. Now Esther could finally go play. Esther ran to the

yard in front of the shul with Mutche in tow. She knew she would find her friends there and some little boys for Mutche to play with. Her friends were playing their favorite game, Buttons. “Can I have a turn?” Esther asked her friends Clarel and Frimet. Esther, Clarel, and Frimet were the best of friends. They

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.

70

/ 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.

went to school together in the fall and winter and spent long hours playing together in the summer. Clarel’s home was similar to Esther’s. Her family also lived with their grandparents in one of the village houses, and Esther liked playing there sometimes. Yet, she didn’t often visit Frimet’s house, as there was really no room for visitors. Frimet had five sisters and seven brothers, the youngest of whom was born just four weeks ago.

ground. It made a shiny and pretty floor, but it didn’t smell good. In the winter, the family would bring in their young calf, two goats, and about fifteen chickens to live in the corner of the kitchen, because they didn’t have a barn in which to keep the animals warm. But now in the summertime, when the animals were fenced in in the yard, the kitchen was a lot roomier and quieter. Frimet and her sisters all wore dresses with many patches, and for a while, her mother wore two different shoes, as she didn’t have a pair that was still good. What was most sad was that Frimet had three sisters who were old enough to get married, but who would take them without a naden? A naden was money a girl’s family gave to the couple upon marriage, and every girl had to have a naden if she wanted to marry a worthy boy. Mima Feige had taken a girl without a naden for her son, but that was only because he was illiterate and coarse, and no one else would have him. In Selisht there were many poor folks, but Frimet’s family struggled terribly.

When Esther and Mutche arrived to the Shul’s yard, Esther’s two friends were deeply engrossed in their Buttons competition. With their fingernails, they dug three little holes in the ground. Then, they used a twig to scratch out the starting line. Each girl would try to flick a button from the starting line into one of the holes. Whoever scored, collected all the buttons. Esther fished in the pocket of her cotton summer dress. She always kept her supply of buttons handy.

and flicked really well. She never needed to worry again that she wouldn’t be able to join the game. In fact, once, when Frimet had flicked her last button and lost the shot, Esther gifted her three buttons so that she could continue playing, but not Zeidy’s. When the sun began to set, Esther, Mutche and their friends headed to the little lake that bordered the Deblingers’ yard. In summertime, all the village folk brought their livestock to drink from the lake. What fun it was to watch. There were many cows, calves, goats, and three horses. Only

The little house was always full and busy and happy, and both Zeidy and Babby reveled in the pleasure of having young children underfoot again. tablecloth and sparkling dishes, as if company was coming. Tonight the house had a delicious smell of bean soup and sour cream. On the other side of the big room was the bed where Esther and Mutche slept. There was also a big bunk bed, which was so old and so heavy that it could never be moved, not even when they cleaned for Pesach. Esther secretly believed that when the lake flooded and surrounded the little house

with water, it was the heavy bunk bed that kept the little house from floating away. In early summer, the bunk bed was empty, but as soon as the fruits would start to grow, they would be picked and stored on the bed until Babby and Mamashe would cook them into sweet jam or bake them into mouthwatering pies. Off the big room was the kitchen. The big oven stood against one wall. During the winter, it warmed the entire house splendidly. There was a big work counter on the opposite wall, half of which was for dairy and the other half for meat. Babby and Mamashe spent many, many hours cutting and chopping and mixing and grating at the counter. Esther was good at grating potatoes; she rubbed them steadily against the grater. She also did a great job at turning egg whites into a fluffy snow by beating them for a long time with two forks, alternating between her right hand and her left hand so that they shouldn’t hurt too much. The third wall of the kitchen was screened off with a curtain. Behind it was Babby Malka’s and Zeidy Chaim’s bedroom. Esther had heard many times about how Babby

and Zeidy had once slept in the bedroom where Tatashe and Mamashe and Ruchele now sleep. But then, when Mamashe had grown up, Babby wanted her to marry a real Talmid Chacham, so she offered kest. Kest meant that whoever married Mamashe would get a home and food so that he would not need to work in order to provide for his family, and would instead devote his time to Torah study. So when Tatashe agreed to marry Mamashe, Zeidy and Babby happily gave up their room for the young couple and created a new bedroom for themselves off the kitchen. There was another little room off the kitchen, but because it was unfinished, it was never used for anything besides for the woodpiles. The little house was always full and busy and happy, and both Zeidy and Babby reveled in the pleasure of having young children underfoot again.

RE ALE STATE

HOW MUCH SHOULD I PUT DOWN WHEN CLOSING?

by Ann Zeilingold

Moshe and Esther want to purchase a home. They heard that 20% down is the way to go. They heard that you can find a home for about $400,000. Being that they have $75,000 available, and their parents probably will give them some money too, they feel that they are ready. Boy, are they in for a shock when they find out that they need over $100,000 with the closing costs!! What are their options? And is what you heard always correct? Obviously, they can put less money down to have enough money for their down payment in addition to closing costs, but that will throw them into a payment that includes PMI, Private Mortgage Insurance. This is an additional insurance payment that is paid monthly and is added to the mortgage payment. So the monthly mortgage payment would include the principle and interest, the taxes, the homeowner’s insurance and the PMI. Putting down less than 20% is not a bad course of action. Rebecca F., a homeowner who purchased

a home in Jackson, NJ, told me just this week that had she waited until she saved enough money for a 20% down payment, she would have paid $100,000 more for her home. Instead she is presently enjoying the appreciation of the home and is in the process of having the bank reevaluate her home to see if the PMI can be removed early based on the current appraised value. Possibly, if a family is short on just the money for closing costs, a seller’s concession can be an option. That is an arrangement where the price is negotiated to include the seller paying all or part of the closing costs. When putting less than 20% down, there are three different mortgage insurance options. There are a few mortgage insurance companies to choose from, and the rates vary between one company and the next. There are some lenders, though, that allow only a specific mortgage insurance company, so there is not always a choice. Additionally, this is not a product that the consumer can shop for.

Ultimately, your lender will determine which mortgage insurance company will issue the insurance for you. One can pay monthly. This monthly figure is determined based on the % down, the credit score and overall strength of the file. It does vary from scenario to scenario. One can pay an upfront lump sum. This figure also varies depending on the PMI company and the overall strength of the file. This way the consumer pays a onetime payment at closing and doesn’t ever make a monthly PMI payment One can get Lender Paid PMI. This is the same as the upfront lump sum, except the lender will pay the cost at closing. The lender will recoup the cost by raising the interest rate on the file to create a situation where there is a credit back to the borrower to pay for the PMI. There is another option which involves a “piggyback loan” This is where one will take out two mortgages at the closing. One mortgage

will be less than the 80% LTV (as if you are putting 20% or more down) and a second mortgage loan or a HELOC (Home Equity Line Of Credit) for the remainder. An example is, let us say, that the home price is $400,000 and you want to put down 10%, and get a loan of $360,000. The first loan would be a 75% LTV, $300,000 and the second loan would be $60,000, totaling 360,000. It is important to have a discussion with your mortgage lender to determine which scenario is the best for your family, based on your specific needs. This discussion should involve the monthly cost, the tax write-off potential, and the

There is the FHA and VA loan, two government loans. The FHA is available to everyone and the VA is only for an eligible veteran. There is a state loan called the SONMA loan which we will discuss a different week. Rockland County has a closing cost grant which is limited to a

Going on Vacation?

MARKETING COLUMN

MONSEYREBRANDED

TRAVEL SMART.

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: Hi,

service for mothers after birth.

I just read your Monsey Rebranded article and would like to tell you about the fantastic service we provide here at Tiny Treasures.

For no fee, we will bring a selection of beautiful baby clothing and accessories for the mother to shop in the comfort of her own home.

Our layette store caters exclusively to new mothers and their darling newborns. Our prices are comparable to any brick and mortar store, but we offer an additional, innovative

There is a small minimum purchase requirement, to make the trip worth our time. We provide amazing services, and for that we are not ashamed to charge average market prices.

Sanity for Sale “The Yomim Tovim are around the corner,” is the cliché of the months. And indeed, they are. If you own a retail storefront, you’re probably fully prepared – or even stocked - with your merchandise. (You may even be placing your orders for the following season …) If you’re a service provider, you may be preparing your task force or equipment for an influx of calls.

You may read this, and see it as an advantage that people don’t think and will shop or request services more easily. However, because they are so busy, they will also not take the time to think about which shop or service provider they will use. Whoever is more accessible or memorable will get the business.

Yom Tov time is hectic. When people are as busy as a Jewish family is, readying their home, clothing a line-up of children, cooking twentysomething meals, there is less time to think and reflect on each decision. A family who usually delegates a lot of daily responsibilities to their children will find that during this month they need to dig in for more help. Whether it is sending clothing to professional cleaners, ordering ready-cooked food, using the service of a seamstress, hiring someone to build the sukkah, stocking up on disposable dishes, or calling on the plumber for clogged sinks and dishwashers, they will be outsourcing more than throughout the year. When there’s so much on everyone’s list, people pay for sanity. Branding Because of the chaos inherent in holiday schedules, your brand must be consistent and well-recognized. A true successful brand is one that can withstand a hectic schedule.

So you may be fully prepared for the season, but did you prepare your customers? From today, Rosh Hashanah is 49 days away. How will your existing customers and new potential customers come to you? When the circulars will be double or triple the size, will you try to quickly make your mark, or can you think in advance? Can you begin drawing people in now? Whether it’s a compelling ad campaign, signage, or direct mail - I leave that up to you, but here are the two integral ingredients to be sure to put into the mix:

Unique Selling Proposition This is the time to remind people why they like you or should like you. This is the time when your unique service or product will be well paid for. Because as mentioned before, consumers pay a lot for sanity and convenience.
