    Dear Vues Master:

    Amazingly the world press has largely ignored the burning of Shuls in Lod and Ramle. 200 rockets shot at Jews in Eretz Yisrael. Shuls burnt to the ground. Yet, the IDF is blamed for defending Israel. Jews will continue to defend themselves regardless of what the UN and the rest of the world thinks. After 2000 years of oppression the Jew has learned that we must stand up for ourselves. May the Almighty restore peace swiftly to Eretz Yisrael!


    Vues Master’s Note: Don’t kid yourself Kristalnacht was also widely ignored. The press have their own agenda and us Jews don’t fit in it!



    Dear Vues Master:

    It’s just laughable. Mayor de Blasio announced a summons blitz which will focus on speeding motorists and those who fail to yield for bicycles and pedestrians. This is because his Speed Limit Zero program hasn’t had any significant effect on pedestrian deaths.


    Vues Master’s Note: Don’t you think the name says it all “Vision zero” DeBlas has zero vision! For that matter so too the Squad their vision is impaired!



    Dear Vues Master:

    It would seem like Liz Cheney is My friend, a very respected doctor, told me this week that the COVID-19 vaccines are safe for use in pregnancy and all concerns with the vaccine in general are unfounded. He explained that the reason why people think that the vaccine causes fertility issues is because when mRNA technology was originally introduced some decades ago, there were some fertility issues linked to it. However, over ensuing decades the technology has been adapted and there are no more issues.


    Vues Master’s Note: Has your friend the Dr studied the long term effects? No, because there is no long term yet. Wait till ten years go by and tell me it is safe. I am not saying not to get vaccinated as it will save you from Covid but there is no one who knows what the ten year long term effects it will have. Maybe it is still worth taking the risk but don’t tell me it is safe when you don’t know it!



    Dear Vues Master:

    קוגל בגמטריה שבת There is an old joke where a speaker got up and said . קוגל בגמטריה שבת The listening audience immediately interrupted him that it is not true. The גמטריה of קוגל is 139 and the גמטריה of שבת is 702 way more than 139. The speaker answered back, that this is not a problem, all you have to do is eat more Kugel until it adds up. NO JOKE The יאלוזא םהרבא ’ר תוהגה on the שובל (grandfather of the Chida) writes, אדימסד-אחמק -בלח -שבד (foods eaten on Shavuos) is the Gematria of 613 ( ג”ירת) R.A.A. continues that it is not exactly correct since the Gematria is 614. His solution is, not to eat the whole amount but leave over one so the Gematria will be correct.


    Vues Master’s Note: I think that we should have more Shalom Bayis Kugel! It will be the Gematriya of a long lasting marriage!



    Dear Vues Master:

    After months of negotiation with the authorities, a Talmudist from Odessa was finally granted permission to visit Moscow. He boarded the train and found an empty seat. At the next stop, a young man got on and sat next to him. The scholar looked at the young man and he thought: This fellow doesn’t look like a peasant, so if he is no peasant he probably comes from this district. If he comes from this district, then he must be Jewish because this is, after all, a Jewish district. But on the other hand, since he is a Jew, where could he be going? I’m the only Jew in our district who has permission to travel to Moscow. Ahh, wait! Just outside Moscow there is a little village called Samvet, and Jews don’t need special permission to go to Samvet But why would he travel to Samvet? He is surely going to visit one of the Jewish families there. But how many Jewish families are there in Samvet? Aha, only two — the Bernsteins and the Steinbergs. But since the Bernsteins are a terrible family, so such a nice looking fellow like him, he must be visiting the Steinbergs. But why is he going to the Steinbergs in Samvet? The Steinbergs have only daughters, two of them, so maybe he’s their son-in-law. But if he is, then which daughter did he marry? They say that Sarah Steinberg married a nice lawyer from Budapest, and Esther married a businessman from Zhitomer, so it must be Sarah’s husband. Which means that his name is Alexander Cohen, if I’m not mistaken. But if he came from Budapest, with all the anti-Semitism they have there, he must have changed his name. What’s the Hungarian equivalent of Cohen? It is Kovacs. But since they allowed him to change his name, he must have special status to change it. What could it be? Must be a doctorate from the University. Nothing less would do. At this point, therefore, the Talmudic scholar turns to the young man and says, “Excuse me. Do you mind if I open the window, Dr. Kovacs?” “Not at all,” answered the startled co-passenger. “But how is it that you know my name?” “Ahhh,” replied the Talmudist, “It was obvious.”


    Vues Master’s Note: I believe I can pin point who sent this letter in. I don’t want to go into the depth of the lomdus of how I got to this conclusion so I won’t reveal it! But remember a Gemara Kup can figure everything out!



    Dear Vues Master:

    Greetings, As a veteran matchmaker,I see first hand the adverse effects with picture postings in getting a yes of either gender prospects.Rabbi David Feinstein ztl mentioned publicly that a person has a natural “chein” that is not portrayed in a picture.There is the “YAD HASHEM”that becomes evident in every shidduch.Pictures cause us to trip over a possible “doable” shidduch. I have interviewed many men overweight ,great persons who may have to diet to lose a few pounds.The negative aspects often dissipate after a meeting.Let us nix the pictures for men and women.

    Respectfully, SARA G

    Vues Master’s Note: I get the picture!



    Dear Vues Master:

    I’ve never written to your paper before, but after reading the article by Rav Efrem Goldberg, I just couldn’t push off writing this letter. (I saved the rest for after I compose this important message). Not only was it well written, and informative, but it was also real, relatable and extremely applicable. Rav Efrems points were crystal clear and brought forth a lot of clarity. We have definitely gotten much better at viewing mental illness with the accuracy it deserves, but I still wonder why some of us still buy the idea that one with mental illness can just “snap out of it,” or “get over it.” As a Jewish community of Chessed, we MUST get properly informed so that we can help our family and friends, and give them respect. No, ignorance is not bliss. It’s our responsibility to use the various resources that are available and educate ourselves about the facts. One such crucial resource for those struggling with mental illness is Chazkeinu Organization. Started and founded by Mrs Zahava List, Chazkeinu has b”H been around for 5 years and dedicate themselves to providing support and Chizuk to Jewish women, ages 18+ with mental illness. To reach Chazkeinu, you can call 314-346-7414 or visit their website at www.Chazkeinu.org. Refuat Hanefesh, Ohel and a recent organization CATCH, are both great websites to look through and become informed. Thank you so much for that article and for your amazing newspaper!

    Best, S P

    Vues Master’s Note: Yes! We need to daven and help all unfortunate people! Thanks for alerting us to this!



    Dear Vues Master:

    This past week all our hearts and prayers are turned towards Eretz Yisrael. World media slams Israel as the aggressor, when in fact they were the victims of a one-sided assault of over 1,600 missiles fired on its civilians. The headlines were maddening, claiming Israel had started the conflict and calling for restraint. Carona….Meron….and now war. The non-stop drama is taking its toll on our people. But with the dramatic escalation in conflict comes a surge of incredible achdus, unity, amongst Jews all over the world. Rallies in communities, endless social media posts of support, tehillim are shared and recited…. Why oh why can we not come together when times are good? Why does it always take an assault on our very existence? Hashem please……..


    Vues Master’s Note: As someone wrote Lag BaOmer was not Lag BaOmer and Shavuos was not Shavuos let us hope that Tisha B’Av will not be Tisha B’Av



    Dear Vues Master:

    After a very difficult week in Eretz Yisrael with bombs coming down and everyone running for shelter there are a few things I have learnt. 1. Be proud to be Jewish and/or Supporter of Israel. There are a lot of haters out there from media, celebrities, social influencers, neighbors, and so many other people who say they are loving to everyone but the Jews. 2. Get involved, it’s not good enough to sit on the sidelines and watch people disparage Israel, your brothers and sisters. Go to protests in the street, call your family and friends in Israel to check in on them, daven for them to be safe. Silence is not an option: know your facts and don’t back down. Find your voice!! There is only 1 Israel, 1 place for Jews to call home. 3. If you’re kids want to get involved make sure they know the history and facts. My kids have taken to defending Israel on social media and are not afraid to question, argue, and defend Israel. Ask and engage your kids, primarily your teenagers what they are seeing online. Don’t think they are not seeing antisemitic and anti Israel messages. Be sure to keep an eye on them to make sure they are representing us in the best light. יח לארשי םע!!!


    Vues Master’s Note: Ignorance here will not be bliss! We must learn from History!!



    Dear Vues Master:

    On רופיכ םוי, immediately after הליענ, the Brisker Rav, רב-יסוי יבר, told the ןזח to quickly pray תיברע. Afterwards, one of the םיללפתמ asked ?הז זוריזל וניבר האר המ” ךירצש אוה שרופמ ןיד ירה רמג םע תוהשל םדא “ובלמ קפס אציש דע םוצה The יבר responded: “Yes, they said,ובלמ קפס אציש דע but they didn’t say קפסמ ובל אציש דע.”


    Vues Master’s Note: My heart could not stop laughing from this joke!



    Dear Vues Master:

    Did you see Biden’s speech “It’s ridiculous to say that I use a teleprompter and your pc has run into a problem and had to restart”. If anything is ridiculous, it’s you Mr. President.


    Vues Master’s Note: At least he stayed up the entire time. Must’ve been after his nap! You know why he wants to run over the reporter? He is old and can no longer drive. He would never find his way home! Uch un vey we have an idiot like this puppet running the Country!



    Dear Vues Master:

    Public Service Announcement: Section 8 voucher list is opening from May 17-28 for first time in over 10 years. 15,000 applicants will be awarded a housing voucher through a lottery system. Chap arein!

    PS Vues Master’s Note: Great! Incentivise more people not to work. We can’t find anyone willing to work anymore!



    Dear Vues Master:

    It would seem like Liz Cheney is positioning herself for a white house bid. She is still not apologetic on House floor the night before she faced possible ouster as GOP conference chair: “We must speak the truth. The election was not stolen”. Good grief! Just change your party affiliation. We don’t need such people in our party. LC Vues Master’s Note: What was stolen was the freedom of speech one can not speak their opinion and claim the election was stolen!



    Dear Vues Master:

    Our great Zionist leaders in Israel are our worst enemy. Israel’s Channel 12 reports that Arab intermediaries have conveyed to Israel Hamas’s desire to reach a new ceasefire in the Gaza Strip. However, Israel has refused, with officials feeling the terror group has not yet paid a sufficient price for its attacks on Israel. At what price to our brethren who are suffering under the current barrage of rockets?? Politics as usual.


    Vues Master’s Note: I ask you how many more rockets do we need to have shot into Israel and put our brothers in danger? Wipe out all these terrorists and do not make a cease fire to give them more time to re-stock with Biden’s cash!



    Dear Vues Master:

    Why are we allowing the Democratic liberal agenda to hide behind the mask of a fake health crisis. Kudos to the group of NYC landlords who filed a lawsuit to stop New York’s renewed eviction moratorium, extending state ban on evictions through the end of Aug. This is just another example of the socialism perpetrated by the democrats.


    Vues Master’s Note: What’s the problem? You think the Government can’t take care of you?
