UPCOMING Parshat Miketz By: Rabbi Landsman

EVENTS Shabbat Chanukah!

Candle Lighting: “At the end of two years, Pharoah dreamt that he was standing by the Nile."
4:12 Pharoah was very disturbed by the dream wherein seven lean cows ate seven fat
cows. None of the wise men of Egypt were able to interpret the dream for him,
Havdallah: 5:13 and this troubled him even more.
Even if we assume that the Egyptian Pharoahs were much more superstitious than

Rav Schwab further points out that Parshat Miketz always coincides with

Chanukah. This is a constant of the Jewish calendar. It is not just a coincidence.

Sixth Grade Talks Chesed

While our students, Baruch HaShem are thinking of what gift they will be receiving
tonight, the girls at Bait V’Tikvah orphanage have other things on their mind. The sixth
grade girls had another visit from Rabbi Thau, the director of Bait V’Tikvah in Israel. They
discussed more possible ways to help the girls during their special Bat Mitzvah year. We
hope to start a skype relationship with the girls so that we can practice our Hebrew skills
as well as make friends in Eretz Yisroel! Thank you Rabbi Thau for coming to speak to us!

Cupcake Wars, Edible Menorot, and Morah Wonka

In honor of the first day of Chanukah the elementary school had a great time making different
Chanukah related food projects! Under the direction of Morah Lubek, the first and second grades
made edible Menorot using wafers, jelly beans, and colorful Cheerios. The third grade
competed in Cupcake Wars, making their best depictions of Chanukah, while the fourth and fifth
grade students made beautiful chocolate lollipops with Morah Wonka also known as Mrs.
Beylus! Thank you for making the first day of Chanukah so memorable, and a special thank you
to Morah Wanka’s Umpa Lumpas, Shira Schwartz, Gilli Richman, Rachelle Winokur, Samarah
Kirschbaum, Dylan Roos, and Tzvi Winokur!

Fifth Grade Chesed Trip!

The fifth grade had an amazing day on Tuesday, Erev Chanukah playing
Bingo at four different senior citizen homes throughout the community.
The students visited, the Holliswood Health Care Center, Rego Park
Health Care Center, Cliffside Nursing Home, and Meadow Park Nursing
Center. Thank you to Morah Fried, Rabbi Rohr, Mrs. Orlanski and Mrs.
Hoffman for chaperoning the trip!

YCQ Parent AssociaƟon Chanukah Chagigah Was a Huge Success!
The YCQ Parents AssociaƟon’s first annual Chanukah Chagigah took place this past
Motzei Shabbat. The event was a huge success. There was food, music, art projects,
doughnut decoraƟng and carnival games. We would like to thank the Junior High School
students who helped by running the carnival booths. It was a wonderful evening and a
great opportunity for YCQ families to get together and celebrate. We would like to thank
the Chanukah commiƩee; Aviva Adler, Tzipporah Laub, Shandi Glaser, Sheryl Varnai and
Simone Zakry for all of their hard work at this event. A special thank you to Lisa Fishbein,
for organizing the whole event. We look forward to other YCQ family events in the future.

2-207 Chumash Presentation

We are proud of class 2-207 for receiving their first Chumash this past Sunday. They
have worked so hard by rehearsing their parts and practicing singing the songs. The play
was about the first days of creation and each child had a part that had to do with each
day. They sang beautifully and acted out their parts perfectly. They had a lot of fun
dancing, laughing and learning about the creation of the world. The children wore
costumes and took pictures for the Chagigat HaChumash. We want to congratulate the
class for doing so well and making Morah Rachel and their parents very proud. The
Chumash play was a success and they cannot wait to learn the Torah from our
new Chumashim. Way to go class 2-207!!!

2-204 Chumash Presentation

This past Sunday class 2-204 received their Chumashim for the very first time at the
annual Second Grade Chumash Presentation. The class put on a spectacular play revealing
just how much Ivrit they have learned this year. After the play, the children were called
up to the stage individually to receive a Chumash with their name engraved on it, a goody
bag and a beautiful framed picture taken with their Morot and principals. Following the
ceremony, everyone was invited to the gym for a collation. Many thanks to Morah Dina,
Morah Tali, Rabbi Hamel, and parent representatives for making this day so memorable!
