UPCOMING Parshat Chayei Sarah By: Rabbi Landsman

EVENTS The significance placed on Jewish burial by the Torah is so great that the first

Although we cannot fathom the true meaning of the parah aduma, perhaps there is symbolism in its

performance that reflects these themes. We are commanded to take the ashes of the parah aduma and mix it

with mayim chayim - water from a "living" source such as a spring. One who just faced death and became impure

may come to view death through the lens of the ashes which symbolize total destruction. The Torah insists

that we take the ashes and mix them with living water, thereby transforming ashes (eipher) to dirt (aphar).

Whereas ashes are an end, dirt is used for planting and symbolizes the ultimate rejuvenations of the body and

the soul.

Avraham taught us the significance of burial. Unlike his pagan neighbors who lived for the present, it

was inconceivable that Sara would be buried anywhere except with those who shared her understanding of the

true meaning of life and death. This lesson has been part of our legacy since the purchase of meorat

hamachpeilah. May we merit to see the day when all of those who truly understood life will return once again on the day

that Hashem chooses to perform the wondrous act of techiyat hameitim. Shabbat Shalom!!

Spotlight on New Faculty

Mrs. Eryn Kaplan is our new fourth grade general studies teacher in class 4-306.
She has been teaching for 13 years in both public school as well as other
Yeshivot. This is her first year here at YCQ and it already feels like home. Mrs.
Kaplan enjoys hands-on learning and tries to incorporate it into her class as much
as possible. When she is not here she can be found spending time with her
husband and two children - Hunter 4 and Sara 1.

LIBRARY ELECTIONS!
Book elections took place over the past two weeks in honor of Election Day, which is a yearly tradition
in the Library at YCQ. Each grade was introduced to an age-appropriate topic as votes were deposited
in a red, white, and blue voting box on prominent display. The following were the majority results:
KINDERGARTEN: CLIFFORD, THE BIG RED DOG
GRADE 1: DUCK FOR PRESIDENT (TEACHER WAS A CLOSE SECOND)
GRADE 2: THE WOLF OF “THE TRUE STORY OF THE THREE LITTLE PIGS” WAS

YCQ’s Annual Girls Shabbaton

This past Shabbat the JHS girls enjoyed a wonderful Shabbaton at the Raleigh Hotel. Upon
departing YCQ the girls were off to Sports Time USA where they enjoyed the day playing
arcade games! Pre-Shabbat ruach was a blast. After Kabbalat Shabbat, during the first Shabbat
meal, everyone heard beautiful Divrei Torah. The girls enjoyed hearing from Mrs. Devorah
Kigel throughout Shabbat. The girls eagerly engaged in a learning program and games with
their counselors on Shabbat morning. On Motzai Shabbat the girls had fun singing and
dancing during their ruach filled melave malka. Thank you to all the morot, chaperones and
students for making this the best Shabbaton ever!

G.O. Elections

This past Tuesday, while all of America was voting, YCQ held its own elections! We voted in this
years G.O. which will help with programing and other activities throughout the year for our junior
high school! Mazel tov to Leah Levin and Yehoshua Goldglancz on being elected President.
Emma Gurvich and Joshua Hedvat for Vice President. Ahuva Shachar and Raymond Tawil on
being elected as seventh grade representative. Olivia Kandinov and Haim Abayev for being
elected as sixth grade representative. Looking forward to an amazing year!

Sunday Morning Learning with Rabbi Finestone
This past Sunday, many of the fifth through eighth grade students and
parents had the amazing opportunity to hear from Rabbi Finestone. Rabbi
Finestone spoke about the importance of seeing how much is done for us
on a daily basis! Thank you so much to Rabbi Finestone for the uplifting
shiur.
