a weekly torah thought

chayei sarah

The Torah describes Abraham’s life in glowing

terms, as we read in Parashat Chayei Sarah (Bereishit

24:1): “Abraham was old, well on in years” (lit.

well on in days), upon which the Midrash comments

(Bereishit Rabbah 59:6): A person could be

described in one of these terms, either old or well

on in years, but Abraham was both - he was old and

he was well on in years.

The commentators explain that it is possible for a

person to be old and yet not to be well on in years,

as the Talmud relates of Rabi Eleazar b. Azariah (Berachot

27b):

The Sages came to R. Eleazar and said: “Will you

consent to be the head of the Academy?” He replied,

“I’ll consult the members of my family.” He

went and asked his wife… and she said to him, “But

you have no white hairs (a sign of old age).” At that

time he was only 18 years old. A miracle happened

and, overnight, 18 strands of hair [on his beard]

turned white.

This raises a question: It seems that these two

descriptions – old and well on in years – are external

qualities. That does not express Abraham’s

greatness. It is written (Ezekiel 33:24), “Abraham was

one,” as he was the only one in his time who served

the One Hashem. He was the first one to illuminate

the world with G-dliness. With him (Avoda Zara 9a)

began the era of 2,000 years of Torah, for Abraham

studied and promulgated Torah in the world. Yet

since the Torah identifies Abraham with these two

qualities, we understand that they underscore the

unique greatness of Abraham.

Our Sages clarify the qualities of zaken, old,

and well on in years, as the Talmud teaches (Kiddushin

32b): zaken means, zeh kanah chochma,

one who has acquired wisdom. “Well on in years”

By Rabbi Abraham Stone

means there was no day in which Abraham did not

observe mitzvot (of the mitzvot in his time, before

Mattan Torah). These two qualities are divided into

two separate categories: The quality of zaken is

connected with the wholesomeness of his soul, the

acquired wisdom of his soul. The quality of “well on

in years” refers to what he accomplished in those

years, every day of which was filled with mitzvot.

Had the observance of mitzvot been significant

for the wholesomeness of his soul, there would be

no difference whether he observed mitzvot every

day or whether he observed all those mitzvot in

one day. Thus we must say that the quality of “well

on in years” is the effect the mitzvot had on his life.

To clarify this:

The distinction between Torah and the fulfillment

of mitzvot is that the Torah is connected to

intellect and spirituality, and when one studies

Torah one acquires wholesomeness for the soul.

Mitzvot are enclothed in material things and their

primary purpose is not so much the wholesomeness

of one’s soul as the illumination of the physical

world, to make it an abode for Hashem.

Therefore, when we speak of the wisdom of Torah,

the term is “he acquired wisdom,” he retained

the wisdom of Torah in his soul. When we speak of

mitzvot the term is “well on in years,” that by fulfilling

mitzvot one causes a refinement in the world.

This clarifies the greatness of Abraham, as he did

both – he acquired his own wholesomeness for

himself and he also refined the world.

Our mission in life is to study Torah and fulfill

mitzvot, and to encourage others to do the same.

In so doing, we elicit Hashem’s blessings for good

health, happiness, nachas, prosperity and the

speedy advent of Moshiach.

Despite Neighbors Objections,

Synagogue Gets Approval to Hold

Services In Home

Congregation Etz Chaim located in Teaneck, NJ, and

run by Rabbi Daniel Feldman, was fi nally granted approval

to run a shul from his home after years of dispute with

the neighborhood, according to The Record.

Neighbors had complained that Etz Chaim should

have applied for a house of worship permit when it applied

for a building permit to expand the home, adding

a family room. Feldman pointed out that a letter was

written to the town’s zoning offi cial, Steven Gluck, telling

him they planned to hold regular services there and they

were granted a certifi cate of occupancy for the room.

Gluck issued a cease-and-desist letter in 2008 after the

neighbors fi led a petition. Etz Chaim then applied for a

house of worship permit and the zoning board held a series

of hearings over the course of nearly a year.

The fi nal resolution approving the permit, which also

includes a number of restrictions intended to assuage the

neighbors’ concerns, was recently passed by the board.

The restrictions include limits on the number and

length of services, a parking plan, a ban on most outdoor

activities and a prohibition on cooking equipment in the

kitchenette. In addition, the board required the congregation

to designate a community liaison to respond to

any issues from other residents.

variety of opportunities for Jewish engagement at this

burgeoning center of Jewish life.

The kollel, under the guidance of Rabbi Yisroel Fried,

brings a quorum of rabbinical students from the Chabad-

Lubavitch fl agship yeshiva in Brooklyn to Chabad of the

Upper West Side’s interim address at 97th Street, four afternoons

a week. The students come prepared to explore

a wide range of texts, from Talmud to Kabbalah, with

their study partners.

With some 7000 Jews attending Shabbat services on

October 29, 2010 - November 4, 2010

the Upper West Side, this Jewish community, brimming

with social and educational activities designed to attract

educated professionals, is ripe for the program.

“We felt that many in the community here are ready

for the next step in their Jewish growth,” said Rabbi Shlomo

Kugel, director of Chabad of the Upper West Side

who founded Chabad here with his wife Rivka, 27 years

ago.

“This kollel is not about hearing a lecture, you’re not sitting

down socially with people who want to promote an

idea—which happens a lot in many of the synagogues.

This is just about people who want to help someone learn

Torah. It’s not about the rabbis, it’s about you and what

you can take away from it—there’s no self-promotion, no

money involved, they’re not asking anyone for money, so

the selfl ess way this happens leaves you feeling that what

you have here is incredible.” (lubavitch.com)

Manhattan Beach Shtieble Dedicates New

Sefer Torah

Congregation Shaarey Torah, aff ectionately known

as “The Shtieble,” has been expanding these past two

years under the leadership of Rav Moshe Plutchok. In

fact, the building itself has been renovated to help accommodate

a kehila that has nearly doubled in size

and continues to grow exponentially. The latest venture

for this growing kehila is a new sefer Torah for the

shul’s exclusive use.

The Sefer Torah will be completed by Chanukah

and dedication opportunities are still available.

$30K Up For Grabs In Jewish

Children’s Contest

In honor of its 30th year of operation, the Chabad-

Lubavitch children’s organization Tzivos Hashem announced

the launch of the fi rst-ever “Power of Jewish

Children” contest, an online-based competition

designed to shine a spotlight on the extraordinary

achievements of children everywhere.

“Every single child is important and this contest will

showcase and unite children from all diff erent backgrounds

and communities,” Rabbi Yerachmiel Benjamin-

son, executive director of Tzivos Hashem, said from his

offi ce at the Jewish Children’s Museum in Brooklyn, N.Y.

With chapters around the world, a membership

stretching back decades and a popular magazine, Tzivos

Hashem aims to inspire children to perform acts of

goodness and kindness as representatives of the Jewish

people. The contest, said Benjaminson, will draw

attention to such acts by awarding $30,000 to fi nalists

in three categories.

According to the rules, children or their sponsors

can submit entries dealing with outstanding acts of

kindness to others or what the contest refers to as its

Heart category; exceptional displays of talent in music,

writing, art, comedy or singing, or the contest’s Hand

category; and achievements in independent study

and research, the contest’s Head category. The deadline

for submissions is Nov. 15.

Judges will select 10 fi nalists in each category and

the public can vote on the submissions on the contest’s

website, www.powerofj ewishchildren.com, between

November 16 and December 16.

After the online voting, the top three fi nalists in each

category will be awarded an expenses-paid trip to New

York City to attend the Tzivos Hashem anniversary dinner

and concert on January 16. Each of the winners will receive

cash prizes for themselves and the non-profi t Jewish

institution of their choice. (chabad.org)

Kosher Diva To Debut Teens &

20-Somethings Cookbook

Self-taught chef Susie Fishbein has become the culinary

heroine of borscht-bored kosher cooks throughout

North America. So infl uential is the home-based

wife and mother of four that Fishbein was invited to the

White House in recognition of Jewish American Heritage

Month. As a feature highlight of the New York area KosherFest,

Fishbein launched her seventh cookbook, Kosher

by Design Teens & 20-Somethings: cooking for the

next generation, aimed at the young and digital-savvy

fast food generation and those who cook for them.

Noting how her family life has infl uenced her career

as a cookbook author, Fishbein said, “When my

kids were younger, I published Kosher by Design Kids

in the Kitchen. They learned to cook simple recipes

news

with me. I have a couple of teens now and their appetites

have changed. This new cookbook equips young

adults with knowledge and skills to create their own

amazing foods – from a quick and delicious snack to

a whole party.”

Fishbein provides clear and simple guidance

throughout the cookbook to help young cooks develop

confi dence in preparing dishes that appeal equally

to the eye and palette. She off ers important tips for

healthy eating, safety in the kitchen, essential utensils,

and menu planning.

Anyone with food sensitivities will appreciate the

convenient sidebar symbols that indicate gluten-free,

fat-free, dairy-free, and vegetarian recipes. In accordance

with kosher cooking requirements, each recipe

is clearly marked as meat, dairy, or parve.

Susie’s sold-out coast-to-coast cooking demos,

along with her appearances on national television and

radio, have elevated kosher cuisine to a more sophisticated

level in the public’s perception.

Sheepshead Bay Islamic Center

Denied Permit

Sheepshead Bay residents have been staging protests

for months ever since they were notifi ed that a

Islamic community center was planned for their quiet,

residential area; well, now most are breathing a sigh of

relief after being informed that city offi cials rejected

the plan.

Property owner, Allowey Ahmed, believes that the

Department of Buildings rejected the building due to

pressure from the community.

The city told Ahmed that the entire plan has to be

reviewed again for “anywhere from one to fi ve months.”

State Sen. Carl Kruger (D–Mill Basin) said the second

review is necessary because of the divisive feelings

surrounding the mosque project.

The protests often became hostile with one side

arguing that residents are discriminating against

their religion, while neighbors claiming that their

objection to the site were mostly due to worries

about traffic, parking spaces and noise from daily

prayer meetings.

FIRST SEASON OF CAMP FOR SPECIAL NEEDS IS BIG SUCCESS!

The Friendship Circle, a project of Chabad of the Upper East Side which was established to extend a helping hand to

Jewish families who have children with special needs, had their fi rst season of camp this summer.

The camp took place at Chabad of the Upper East Side, from August 23-27. The children and their one-on-one teenage

volunteers enjoyed daily trips, karate, cooking, crafts, music and more all within a warm Jewish environment. For

many of the children, it was their fi rst time in their lives attending day camp!

The Friendship Circle also runs programs throughout the year including Friends at Home (weekly visits by teenage

volunteers), Holiday Programs, after school Judaic & Sports Programs, Volunteer Trainings & Social Events and Parents

Networking Events.

For more information on any of the Friendship Circle’s programs call 212.717.4613 x 6 or online at www.fcues.com.

COJO’S PROJECT CARE AND COMMUNITY VOLUNTEERS JOIN TO UPLIFT

HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS

On October 6, 2010, Holocaust survivor clients of Project

Care Volunteer Services attended a Fall Get-Together

at Sisu V’Simchu Hall. Sixth graders from Torah

Temimah Yeshiva sang beautifully and entertained the

crowd; an inspiring lecturer, Rabbi Reuven Ibragimov

of Gateways, entreated survivors to make “a song out

of life” and to think of their lives in positive terms; live

musical entertainment was provided; and a catered

lunch was served. The priceless afternoon gave survivors,

who can’t always get out, a chance to see their

friends, make new ones, and go home with new positive

memories. Lunch, entertainment and transportation

were provided free of charge to survivors. We are

extremely grateful to the volunteer drivers who transported

the survivors. “I have a busy life, but it was es-

sential that I take a few hours to drive these survivors.

It’s the least I can do for them,” stated one volunteer.

This event was generously sponsored by COJO of Flatbush,

Bikur Cholim of Boro Park and the Conference

on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany.

In addition to other services, COJO’s Project Care Volunteer

Services provides friendly visiting, social gatherings

and telephone assurance to enhance the quality

of life of Holocaust survivors and senior citizens in

Brooklyn. To volunteer for any of our services please

call Luba at (718) 627-5619 or cojovolunteers@yahoo.

com . For information on services, call Mrs. Steinberg,

Program Director, at 718-627-5602.
