Senior Dinner pedagogical lesson: "Do as I say, not as I do" is not effective parenting.

8th Grade This positive lesson is gleaned by the Chasam Sofer in his understanding of the verse,

YCQ Family News (Shemot 12:24), regarding the laws of Pesach, "you shall observe this matter as a decree for

Mazel Tov to Mrs. Mollie yourself and for your children forever." He notes that only when the example has been set by the

on the birth of a baby
Indeed, the same lesson can be derived from the familiar passage of v’shomru (Shemot

Mazel Tov to Morah 1:16), "the children of Israel shall observe the Shabbat, to make the Shabbat an eternal covenant
Sarah Kehirim (K-102)
for their generations." If Shabbat is positive and spiritually uplifting in addition to restful and socially
on the birth of a

Moshe Feinstein zt"l noted that the generation that sacrificed for Shabbat, often losing their jobs to

keep Shabbat, but complained at the Shabbat table "vi shver tzu zein a yid" “it is difficult to be a

Jew" could not transmit a Shabbat to their children that would be everlasting. Their children, while

proud of their parents, were not prepared to make that sacrifice. When Shabbat is observed with

pleasantness and sweetness, there is greater likelihood for perpetuity.

The first beracha of Birkat Hatorah recited daily speaks of the sweetness of Torah and

asks HaShem for His assistance in experiencing and imbibing this sweetness. What follows next is

the prayer that our children and children's children will be immersed and accomplished in the study

of Torah. The beracha itself provides the best method of insurance: if you show your children by

your studying Torah with excitement and enthusiasm for Torah, there is a much greater chance

they will wish to emulate your ways.

Good Jewish parenting begins with the father of our people, Avraham Avinu. We are told

that Hashem loved him (Bereishit 18:19), "because he commands his children and his household

after him acharav that they keep the way of HaShem, doing charity and justice." "Acharav" denotes

that Avraham taught by example and hence his lessons live on. Have a Shabbat Shalom!

Grade 7 Trip to Philadelphia

On May 23, grade 7 students went on the YCQ annual ‘Philly’ trip. After a great ride on
beautiful Coach Busses, they arrived at the Eastern State Penitentiary, one of oldest prisons
with a Jewish presence. Students then toured Constitution Center, the Mint, and the Liberty
Bell, followed by a tour on the Big Red Pedal Tours. Before returning back to school, the
students enjoyed dinner at the Cherry Grill Bistro. It was both a fun and educational outing
enjoyed by all. Thank you to Mrs. Golubtchik for all she did with the help of all the loving
and dedicated teacher chaperones.

Healthy and Wise

Our Healthy & Wise program has come to an end for this year. The nursery and kindergarten students learned about
the people who help us to stay healthy. They “visited” the doctor, nurse, and eye doctor. The first, second, and third
graders read the Cat in the Hat book “Oh, the Things You Can Do that are Good for You”. This book taught us the
importance of brushing our teeth twice a day, washing our hands to prevent the spreading of germs, and the im-
portance of sleeping 10-12 hours each night to reenergize ourselves for the next day. We learned that these things are
all part of the package to being healthy, along with eating foods from the different colors of the rainbow and all 5 food
groups, as well as exercising to keep our heart healthy, our muscles strong, and our bodies growing. We will see you
all bigger and stronger next year!
