Shaindy Mashinsky Route 59 Accident Victim Dies

Route 59 accident victim, Shaindy Mashinsky, 18, a daughter of one of the pillars of chessed in the Monsey community, Rabbi Yosef Mashimsky Shlita, Menahel of Yeshiva Bais Dovid in Monsey.

The nifteres was critically injured by a vehicle on Wednesday night and Hatzolah paramedics transported her to Westchester Trauma Center where she has been fighting for her life. 

Shaindy’s mother, Mrs. Breindel Leah Mashinsky a”h, passed away a number of years ago.

Shaindy was a granddaughter of Rav Hershel z”l and Rebbetzin Malka Mashinsky a”h. Rav Hershel was the co-founder of Kupath Ezrah of Rockland County and a longtime rebbi at Yeshiva of Spring Valley who was renowned for his expertise in the field of chinuch and his unceasing involvement in tzorchei tzibbur. Their son, Rav Yosef, has carried on that tradition with his work in the world of chinuch and his efforts in the realm of chesed.
Tragically, he has now suffered the loss of his daughter some years after first losing his rebbetzin.
Shaindy succumbed to wounds sustained in an accident that took place at about 9 p.m. last night on Route 59 in Monsey. She was critically injured and was taken by Hatzolah to Westchester Trauma Center, where doctors fought to save her life. With the guidance of the Skulener Rebbe, the name Alte was added and Yidden davened for Alte Shaindel bas Breindel Leah.
The funeral for Miss Mashinsky is scheduled to take place today at 11 AM at Kehal Avriechim - Rav Schnnebalg, 31 Dover Terrace Monsey.

Nirbarter Tzaddik on the left
The Nirbarter "Tzaddik"  has the largest Hashgacha racket in the entire Frum world. He is the Baal Hamacsher on all Meal Mart meats which is basically the  Alle Processing Corp. 

The Nirbarter also gives hashgacha to individual caterers. The Nirbarter will not allow the caterer to use any products in the kitchen that he does not give an hashgacha on other words all Lieber Products are "chazir treif" ....OU according to him is as if you were eating Hallal, and  he does not allow any product that is under the hashgacha of Rabbi Steimetz or R' Weissmandel, amongst others.. There are 2 Tartikoff Hashgachois and he prohibits one of them, I don't remember which one!

I remember making a simcha once and asking the caterer if he uses Empire Chickens .....
He looked at me as if I just walked out of the Episcopal Church in New City ....
"Empire Chickens?" "they next thing you will probably want is Hebrew National!"

Now the reason I requested Empire Chickens is because it was after the notorious Monsey Chicken scandal .... and I knew that all the kosher food scandals happen only with the "heimishe hashgachois"
and I personally knew at least 15 Shoichtem that worked at Empire .... big erlicaha yidden!

So guess what ...... the Baal Hamachsher of Empire Chickens is none other than The "Holy" millionare ... R' Aron Teitelbaum, the Nirbarter Rav! 
So my friends, those of you who have large families and are living on a budget, go shop at Costco and Shop rite and buy Empire Chickens .... no problem!
And if you have guests at your shabbos table and they should Chas Ve'Sholom, ask "nu! what chickens do you use?"
 You can shock them and tell them ...."Shop-Rite Chickens" 
arn't they tasty?

Mayim Bialik shares advice about " Being A Divorced Parent"

Mayim Bialik, the beloved Jewish actress, neuroscientist and mother of two recently opened up to her fans about the difficulties of being a divorced mom.
Bialik has been co-parenting her two sons with her ex-husband, Michael Stone, for three years. She has faced many challenges during that time, but, until now, she has never spoken publicly about her divorce in order to protect her family’s privacy. 
“I’d like to talk about it in a way that might help some of you who are going through something similar, or might educate people on what divorce can look like in some families,” Bialik said in a four minute video clip that she posted on her website, Grok Nation, and YouTube.
The actress, who is best known for her role as neurobiologist, Amy Fowler, in CBS’s “The Big Bang Theory,”as well as her lead role as Blossom Russo in NBC’s television sitcom “Blossom,” shared her opinion on how to create the healthiest possible environment for children in the context of a divorce. 
The first piece of advice that Bialik had was for divorced parents to do things together with their children. Bialik shares holiday meals with her children, and she makes sure that they all go to synagogue together for major holidays.
“Is it always perfect and exactly what I want? Of course not. Do my kids sometimes complain that they’d rather have Passover at their dad’s house instead of mine? Of course they do,” Bialik said. “But we all end up being together, and that’s literally what’s most important.”
In addition to divorced parents doing things together with their children, Bialik also advises divorced parents to continue being part of each other’s families. She still keeps in touch with her ex-husband’s family, and she makes it her business to send pictures of her children to them and to attend important family events because it strengthens kids’ lives when all of their loved ones are present.
“Divorce isn’t the end of a family,” Bialik said. “It’s the end of a nuclear family, it’s the end of a family living in one house, but we still have responsibilities to each other’s families and to our kids as a family.”
Finally, Bialik said that divorced parents should always model good behavior in front of their children. While it may seem tempting to trash talk an ex-spouse, Bialik advises against it, as mentioned in a article about Bialik’s video.
“Life’s not a dress rehearsal,” Bialik said. “My kids get one chance to be kids, and this is their situation. I have to put them first.”

Israeli BDS supporter seeks asylum in Canada

Gilad Paz
The meshigener,Gilad Paz, a lawyer and human rights activist who supports the BDS movement against Israel, applied for asylum in Canada on the grounds of 'political persecution'; 'I realized that people like me have no place in the country.

"I am politically persecuted in Israel. I realized that people

 like me have no place in the country, so I decided to leave

 before it's too late," Paz said in an interview with Ynet.

Upon landing at the airport in Montreal on August 11 Paz, a

 lawyer dealing with human rights and labor law, immediately

 submitted a formal request for political asylum. In addition,

 he was active in the human rights organization Amnesty

 Israel as well as left-wing political party Meretz.

An independent lawyer, Paz has represented Arab-Israeli

 clients and Palestinians from the territories.

(and just like Satmar, he said) "I haven't believed in the State

 of Israel for a long time," said

 Paz. "I believe that the Zionist idea was a fundamental

 mistake and we are paying a heavy price for it today. The

 original sin was the Nakba, and later the despicable

 occupation of 1967 and the deterioration of the situation. I

 support BDS because I don't think Israel understands any 

other language."

exactly Satmar Ideology!

According to Paz, he decided to leave Israel and apply for

 asylum in Canada due to pressure from Public Security

 Minister Gilad Erdan and Interior Minister Aryeh Deri against

 BDS activists.

 "I submitted the application as a result of the

 declaration by Erdan and Deri to deport and refuse entry to

 BDS activists with foreign citizenship. I decided to turn to

 Canada because they are the most open to requests for

 political asylum," explained Paz.

"Erdan and Deri don't like people like me as much as they

 don't like foreigners, but when it comes to a person like me

, who is a citizen of Israel by birth, they have a legal problem

 which makes it difficult for them to deport me by force,” he

Israel, circa 1900: 115 year old photos of the Holy Land

In 2011, Rev. Stephen White brought to Dublin several old cardboard boxes found in the old Church of Ireland Killaloe deanery in Limerick. He delivered them to Dr. Susan Hood, the archivist for the Church of Ireland's Representative Church Body Library.

Above is what a treasure looks like. Boxes of lantern slides -- the precursor to photographic slides and slide projectors
Dr. Hood understood she had just received a photographic treasure: hundreds of century-old "lantern slides" of sites in Ireland, India, and the Holy Land.
Dr. Hood deserves credit for preserving the images, digitizing them and posting them on the RCB's homepage.

We thank her for granting us permission to publish the RCB photographs.

Last year, Dr. Hood and BBC undertook an investigation to discover the name of hitherto anonymous photographer. They were able to identify him as David Brown, a soap manufacturer from Donaghmore who was also an amateur photographer. In 1897 he joined a pilgrimage led by his brother in law, a Presbyterian minister from Northern Ireland.
