Shifra & Puah Goes High Tech

Shifra & Puah is experimenting with a free online service called Meal Train with the aim of making the organization of meals for mothers of newborns, and others who are in need, easier for everyone.

On Meal Train a calendar is created for each family who is receiving meals. The calendar includes information like the recipient's address, how many people are in the family, what time they prefer to have the meals delivered by, any dietary restrictions or allergies, food preferences, etc.

Women who volunteer to cook can then see which days and meals are open as well as what foods other people have prepared to ensure variety.

Simply go to mealtrain.com and sign up on the right side of the page.

You can schedule meals now for Dini Bogomilsky and Esty Chein.

To be notified via email when new mothers are added to Meal Train please contact Karen Schild at karenschild@yahoo.com.

Of course, if you are not online you can always schedule meals the old-fashioned way by contacting Karen at 845-354-4898 or karenschild@yahoo.com.

Miracle on Zabriskie Terrace

By Yitzchok and Yehudis Abramowitz

Wednesday morning one could hear the "tap, tap, tap" of the hammer as the mezuzos were once more affixed to their places on the doorposts of every room in our home. The sofer had completed the checking of our mezuzos and tefillin. What a relief to fulfill this mitzvah again in the month of Elul.

A young chosson, soon to be married, dropped by to pick up some of our well-used furnishings to surprise his bride as he plans to present her with a fully decorated apartment. What a nice feeling to give a young couple a jump start in life! After lunch, we all dispersed to various parts of Monsey carrying out our various errands.

Around 3:45 PM, Simcha brought in the mail and settled down to go through the various tzedakah requests, when he suddenly smelled a strong chemical odor. He checked the boiler room, but all was in order. As he neared the back of the house, he suddenly saw a flash of light emanating from the master bedroom. He was shocked to see a small blaze! He immediately called 911 and left the house, not without shouting into the upstairs hallway to make sure everyone was out of the house.

Within three minutes the firetrucks lined Zabriskie Terrace, with volunteer firefighter, Norman Shlissel in the lead. He doused the fire and miraculously the only damage was the DVD player itself, a patch of burnt carpeting and a melted plastic "milk box" and a pervasive odor of burning plastic. Of course, the incident spurred the interest of the neighborhood kinderlach.

No one was hurt. Damage was at a minimum. The firefighters didn't have to force entry into the house. A room fan and the cool weather and open windows helped dissipate the foul smell of burnt plastic and metal. As the soot settled, we all praised the Aibershter for his revealed rachamim. The King was truly in the Field this Elul, casting His smiling countenance upon us. Let us always be there to greet Him.

Large Fire at Blueberry Hill Condos

About 75 firefighters from several fire departments fought flames that ravaged a three-story apartment building this past Monday night.

The fire, which began shortly before 6:45 PM, appeared to have begun on the second floor of building 22 in the Blueberry Hill Apartments, at 200 Route 306. The fire was brought under control by 10:00 PM.

Rockland Deputy Fire Coordinator John Kryger said that a lack of nearby fire hydrants prevented officials from effectively fighting the fire early on.

An Evening of Appreciation to Karen Schild

In a beautiful expression of Hakaros HaTov the women of the community surprised Mrs. Karen Schild last night with an evening of appreciation where she was presented with a generous gift as a small token of appreciation for her amazing work that benefits the community.

Karen, through her chesed project Shifra & Puah, has been arranging meals for many years for mothers of newborns, and other families who may be otherwise occupied, in our community. As the community has grown so has Karen’s workload. Her selflessness and dedication to this beautiful project are a tremendous inspiration.

Thanks to Baila Wasserman for organizing the evening, Devorah Goldstein for hosting it, Naamah Freundlich for the heartwarming poem and to all who brought food and refreshments!

A Wonderful Friend
By Naama Freundlich

We gather here tonight in honor of a special friend
No matter her hectic day her hand she will always lend
She feeds all her friends with simcha on her face
A tremendous amount of toil she will happily embrace
She is our Shifra & Puah a mother, wife, and friend
As if she has the extra time on us she will spend
Whom do we speak about with glory and praise
Karen Schild all of us you constantly amaze
Through sickness, shiva, new home or tired from child birth stuck in bed
With your help we are guaranteed our family will be fed
You know most o Anash by name and number
Collecting your booty of delicious baked wonder
You call, you request, never placing any stress
So that every Kimpetur will have of the best
And if chas v’shalom your food count runs short
Then you always supplement with goodies from your own freezer fort
With an enormous task you continue with such grace to do
We would like to show our appreciation for someone so valued as you
Karen, you inspire, amaze and bedazzle
While looking so lovely without any frazzle
So tonight we unify to say “yasher koach!”
THANK YOU so much from our laiv to our moach
We are so proud of you, you are a true inspiration
A prime example of an Aishes chayil of this nation
May Hashem always bless you and your family with good health to inspire
May your continued mitzvos buil our Beis HaMikdash wall higher
May all of Monsey Anash follow your lead
And with goodness and kindness bring Moshiach with speed!

An Open Letter to the Women of the Community from Bracha Meshchaninov

Hi,

I hope that you are enjoying the last few weeks of summer and that it has given you an opportunity to have fun, bond with your families and get some much needed relaxation. Now that we are in Elul the weather is changing in subtle ways and thoughts of the New Year do start to present themselves. I want to take this opportunity to invite all members of the community to participate in our shiurim that will take place in my home b’ezrat Hashem every Wednesday morning at 10:30 am and encourage you to commit now to making a space in your weekly schedule to do so. The shiur offers not only meaningful, relevant and inspiring learning, but also a great social opportunity to meet other women, exchange ideas and experiences and grow together in a supportive learning based spiritual community.

B’ezrat Hashem, we will be starting off our learning together with the school year, making the first class Sep 1st or the 22nd of Elul.

I am looking forward to sharing Torah learning and growing with you; if for whatever reason you would like to participate in the learning but cannot attend the actual real live shiur on a Wednesday morning, I will be loading the classes every week onto my website: www.womenstlc.com and there you will be able to click on a link to hear the shiur.

Of course, listening online will exclude the possibility of live participation, but you will still get the benefit of hearing the information. Unfortunately the link does not stay effective indefinitely and for that reason last year’s classes are no longer available. I hope to upgrade my technical skills to be able to create an archive of old classes with a better method of access but for the meantime the links are effective for a couple of months.

The website will also be a source of information regarding the evening educational and social events that we will be having, b”ezrat Hashem during the course of the year.

So, mark off your calenders now, making sure to save a weekly Wednesday spot… and I hope to see you September 1st.

Till then, make the most out of the opportunity Elul presents. According to Torah, Elul offers us an unique opportunity for Tshuvah, a return to the inner wholeness, beauty and potential of our own soul and it’s innate connection with the Divine. Tshuvah is the healing and letting go of what keeps us separate from others and from Hashem and from being who we really are. So try to hear the shofar every day and allow its sound to resonate within you and “return to the land of your soul!”

Blessings,

Bracha

Unique Opportunity

Rabbi Mendel Polter, the Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshivas Menachem Mendel Lubavitch of Monsey, has a limited amount of time that he is able to make available to learn with individual 7th or 8th grade students to prepare them for Mesivta level learning.

If interested, please call Miss Rosenthal in the Mesivta’s administrative office at 212-613-5000 extension 5077.

Our Anash Community - A Letter from Rabbi Z.L. Markowitz

Rabbi Zalmen Leib Markowitz
24 Briarcliff Drive
Monsey, New York 10952
rabbimarkowitz@monseychabad.com

ראש חודש אלול תש''ע
Dear Anash, שיחיו

Boruch Hashem, over the last few years our community has seen a tremendous amount of growth. In the last year alone more than 25 Lubavitch families have chosen the greater Monsey area as the place to live and raise their children and a number of new families are scheduled to move in over the next few weeks.

Our community is blessed with many advantages:
  • We have a widely respected Rav of the highest caliber, Rabbi Lesches, Shlita.
  • We have a substantial amount of Bnei Torah, Melamdim, Talmidei Chachamin and talented men and women amongst our Anash who are able to benefit our community by teaching, inspiring, etc.
  • We have a large and diverse group of Baale Batim all of whom are eagerly looking to grow in their Yiddishkeit and Chassidishkeit.
  • We have thriving Shuls - Beis Menachem, Chabad of South Monsey, Tzemach Tzedek, Nusach Ari, etc. - all of which have increasing amounts of young families.
  • We have growing Chabad Mosdos for all ages as well as tzedakah and chesed organizations catering to our community.
Recently many young families have reached out expressing an interest in growing in their Yiddishkeit, both as individuals and as a family unit. Many are also looking to work on improving their involvement in the chinuch of their children especially during these important formative years.

As such, a committee of Yungeleit representing the different Shuls, including Yona Abenson, Aroni Chein, Mendi Labkowski, Avraham Polinger, Yossel Sirota and Avi Weinstein, is forming with the goal of actively increasing shiurim, farbrengens, chinuch and shalom bayis lectures and other inspiring activities to strengthen ourselves and our families in Avodas Hashem, Limud HaTorah and hiskashrus to the Rebbe.

The committee will also be working on activities and events with the aim of strengthening the sense of achdus in our community.

Your input is valuable! Every person's contribution makes a difference! If you have any ideas or would like to get involved in this project please email rabbimarkowitz@monseychabad.com.

Being that we are already in the month of Elul approaching the Yomim Noraim it is a most auspicious time to begin such a great endeavor and I hope to be able to update you shortly with the information of our first event.

May the hachlata itself that we take in doing this, bring us the ultimate results of the גאולה האמיתית והשלימה תיכף ומיד ממש

בברכת כתיבה וחתימה טובה לשנה טובה ומתוקה

Dr. Susskind to Give Yiddish Language Class at RCC

Dr. Yisroel Susskind will be giving a Yiddish course at RCC that is open to the public this October.

Would the ability to converse in Yiddish help you in your professional, personal or religious life? Do you work with a Yiddish speaking clientele, as a health care provider, educator, professional or businessman? Are you a Rabbi or community leader who has congregants that might benefit from such a course?

When I moved to Monsey 10 years ago, I had a rudimentary knowledge of Yiddish. With the help of a dictionary, I could read a religious discourse in Yiddish. Over the past ten years, I have taught myself the basics of conversational Yiddish to the point that I now conduct therapy in Yiddish. When I work with adults, we augment the Yiddish with Hebrew and English. However, when I work with children, for many of them their only conversational language is Yiddish.

I will be offering a 12 hour non-credit course this fall at Rockland Community College in which I share the platform I developed from which I have continued to enhance my Yiddish skills. I expect that the class will be small, perhaps 5 to 10 students, so it will be possible to have a lot of practice speaking in class.

The class will meet on 4 consecutive Sundays in October (the 3rd, 10th, 17th, and 24th) from 1 to 4 PM at the main RCC campus.

Please let me know ASAP at 845-425-9531 if you are interested in participating.

Cheder Reaches 7,770 Votes!

Thanks Zevi Schulman

TONIGHT - Rosh Chodesh Elul Farbrengen for Women

The "winds of Elul" begin blowing tonight.....The King will be in the field....The 13 Attributes of Mercy will be shining ..... all for the entire month! You know it, but the yearly question is 'How do I make the most of it?'

Here's your chance to get fired up, inspired, motivated, ready-willing-and-able to take full advantage of this incredible time!

Devorah Hayman invites all women to a Rosh Chodesh Elul farbrengen with Rabbi Noson Gurary, tonight, Monday, Rosh Chodesh Elul, August 9, at 8:00 PM, at her home, 10 Langeries Drive.

This will be a farbrengen, not just a speaker! Everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate!

Rosh Chodesh Elul

Tomorrow and the following day, Tuesday and Wednesday is Rosh Chodesh Elul. The first Shacharis minyan at Tzemach Tzedek will begin at 6:45 AM and the second minyan at 8:00 AM.

As the last month of the Jewish year, Elul is traditionally a time of introspection and stocktaking - a time to review one's deeds and spiritual progress over the past year and prepare for the upcoming "Days of Awe" of Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur.

As the month of Divine Mercy and it is a most opportune time for increased teshuvah, tefilla, tzedaka, and Ahavas Yisrael in the quest for self-improvement and coming closer to Hashem.

The Alter Rebbe likens the month of Elul to a time when "the king is in the field" and, in contrast to when he is in the royal palace, "everyone who so desires is permitted to meet him, and he receives them all with a cheerful countenance and shows a smiling face to them all."

Specific Elul customs include saying L'David Hashem Ori (Tehllim 27) at the end of Shacharis and Mincha until Hoshanah Rabbah and the daily sounding of the shofar as a call to repentance.

The Baal Shem Tov instituted the custom of reciting three additional chapters of Tehillim each day, from the 1st of Elul until Yom Kippur (on Yom Kippur the remaining 36 chapters are recited, thereby completing the entire Tehillim).

Elul is also the time to have one's tefillin and mezuzot checked by a sofer.
