In better times I gave a fair amount of charity. $1,000.00 to Chinuch Atzmai, $1.000.00 to Square Town, $1,000.00 to Oorah, $1,000 a year to each Yeshiva that I went to. Then there was $100.00 to the average meshulach.
Times were good and I had plenty of money. I spent the money on glamorous charities who gave me alot of Kovod in exchange for donations and had exciting promotions. I only once gave Matan B’Seyser a check, that was for four hundred dollars.
It could be said that one is not intruding into the life of another if, out of care and concern, he would like to aid another perform a Mitzvah properly. As one example, we provided cases where the bracha over an item is not well known and one should feel comfortable mentioning this fact and double-checking that his fellow is about to make the correct bracha. A reader commented that the bracha on several of the foods that we noted, is in fact, the subject of dispute among authorities. Accordingly, we provide our most recent brief notes on the brachos at hand:
A. Fiber One. The OU, which gives the Hashgacha on Fiber One cereal, has determined that the proper brachos on this cereal are Mezonos and Al HaMichya. We note that the original determination as to Fiber One was that its bracha was a Shehakol, but that position changed over a year ago [we do not know whether this was due to a change in the constitution of the product].
The Luach Davar B’Ito reminds all that Purim costumes (especially hats from Eastern Europe) may contain Shatnez, and accordingly should be checked in advance of Purim to make sure that the costume is usable. Renting a costume may prove difficult if one is not able to partially open it up to inspect for shatnez. The Luach also advises against costumes that can scare others and also reminds parents to double-check the wearability of a child’s costume to avoid last minute disappointment that the costume does not fit or falls apart.
TLC (To Live with Choice) Meeting. TLC is a Torah based 13 step recovery group for women for compulsive eating. Meetings are being held every Tuesday night. Kaiser Permanente Hospital, 10 Severance Circle, First Floor ENT section, Conference C, 7:15pm – 8:15pm (sharp). Please contact Yehudis at (216) 315-0666 for more information.
