UPCOMING Parshat Emor By: Rabbi Landsman

EVENTS In the days of the Beit Hamikdash, every erev Shabbat twelve challot would be baked

Candle Lighting: 7:36 in a special shape (“lechem hapanim”) and would be placed on the Shulchan in

Havdalah: 8:41 the Heichal on Shabbat morning. These challot would sit on the Shulchan all week long, and

Sunday, May 13 would be removed the next Shabbat morning when the newly baked lechem hapanim would
Yom Yerushalayim replace them. The kohanim had a mitzvah to eat the removed challot each week
on Shabbat and on the night of motzei Shabbat until midnight. Miraculously, the challot
Mother’s Day tasted delicious as if freshly baked.

Tuesday, May 15 HaRav Hershel Schachter, shlita, Rosh Kollel and Rosh HaYeshiva, Yeshiva
PTO Supperette University, quotes the Gemarah (Menachot 94b) records two views regarding the required

Friday– Monday special shape of these challot. One opinion is that they were in the shape of a canoe,

May 18-21 pointed at both ends and wider in the middle, and the other view is that they were shaped

Shavuot No Sessions like a rectangular carton. The Chazon Ish writes that both are correct and that either shape

Wednesday, May 23 would have been acceptable.
Philadelphia Trip On Shabbat when we recite the bracha of hamotzi at the beginning of each meal,
Seventh Grade
the minhag is that we use challot either in the shape of a canoe or in the shape of a carton.
Monday, May 28 This minhag is based on a passage in the Zohar which states that
Memorial Day the challot on Shabbat should remind us of the twelve challot which were placed on
No Sessions the Shulchan every Shabbat. On Yom Tov, when the challot used
for hamotzi are not reminiscent of the lechem hapanim, many have the custom to use
Wednesday, May 30 round challot indicating that these challot are only to reminisce about the miraculous double
Transition Night
portion of mohn that fell every erev Yom Tov, and not having any connection with the lechem
5th Grade
hapanim.

Sunday, June 3 Based on this passage from the Zohar, many have the practice to have

Celebrate Israel Parade twelve challot on the table when reciting hamotzi over only two. Others have the practice of

Mandatory Attendance cutting both challot of the three meals of Shabbat, adding up to a total of twelve

4-8 half challot to remind us of the twelve lechem hapanim.

Wednesday—Thursday, On Shabbat when we don't go to work or earn any money it is especially important to

June 6-7 remind ourselves of both miracles – the mohn and the lechem hapanim. The mohn was

Washington Trip referred to in the Chumash as “lechem min hashomayim – food from heaven.” Each family
8th Grade would measure how much mohn was brought home each day, and despite the fact that

Monday June 11 some collected much more than they need and some collected much less than their family
Finals Begin 8th Grade needed, it would miraculously turn out that each family ended up with exactly the amount

Literacy Festival they needed for all members of the family. We believe in hashgacha pratit, especially in the
Grades 2,4,5 area of parnassah. Rav Schachter quotes the Gemarah (Taanit 2A), that states
that parnassah is one of the areas that HaShem does not delegate to malachim, e.g. to
Tuesday, June 12
Literacy Festival nature. He takes care of each person's parnassah individually. One who believes that
Grades 1,3 his parnassah is determined in heaven will not feel the need to violate Shabbat to earn more,

Tuesday, June 13 nor to encroach on someone else's parnassah in an inappropriate manner. The Gemarah
Chagigat Bnot Mitzvah (Yuma 38b) states, that in heaven records are kept of each individual, and “everyone will
receive what is due him, and no one can even touch anything that was intended for another
6th Grade Girls
person.”

The miracle of the lechem hapanim extends throughout all generations. The food we

YCQ Family News eat on Shabbat is very tasty even though it was not cooked or baked that day. Just as

Mazel Tov to Rabbi and the mitzvah of the lechem hapanim served as a segulah for parnassah for Klal Yisroel, so
Mrs. Lonner (executive too, our observance of Shabbat not only will it not diminish our parnassah, but will
Director) upon the
engagement of their son! enhance it. The miracles of lechem hapanim and the mohn have followed shomrei Shabbat

Jews throughout all the generations. Shabbat Shalom!

UPK Getting Acquainted Session

This past Tuesday night, the applicants for next years UPK came to see what all the hype at YCQ is about! They
enjoyed many different activities! We made eatable Fruit Loop necklaces, colored, played with Playdough, and
built with Magnatiles and blocks. To end the special event Morah Sharon did a flannel story board. Each child
received a special cupcake and YCQ notebook and pencil! Looking forward to having an amazing student body
in our YCQ class next year! Special thanks to Morah Shana, Morah Ilyce, Morah Peshie, Morah Cindy, Morah
Rachel, Morah Osnat and Morah Sharon for all the hard work!

Mishmar Groups and Sunday Morning Learning Participants Go to Mets Game

All of the grades 4-8 students that participated in the after school Mishmar Program went to a Mets game
at Citifield. These students made a commitment to spend time learning additional Torah in addition to
what they learn during school hours. We are so proud of the learning they do and derive so much Nachat
from our students!

Torah Bowl Southern Division Champions!

YCQ will always be the 2018 Southern Division Champions in Boys Torah Bowl. For the first time in
nearly ten years, the Yeshiva of Central Queens Boys Torah Bowl team advanced to the Championship
Round of the Torah Bowl playoffs! After securing a double bye for finishing the regular season a
perfect 12-0, they advanced to the finals where they battled in a tough best of three series with Ramaz

to claim their place in history as
Southern Division Champions.
Although the boys were Southern
Division Champions, they could not
get past the powerhouse Ashar
(Monsey) in the Tri State Area
Torah Bowl Championships. The
boys were asked one hundred
questions on the entire Sefer
Beraishis with Rashi. However,
they simply could not keep up with
the “fast paced offense” Ashar
runs. We look forward to building
on the most successful season in
YCQ Torah Bowl History. Until
next year! Special thanks to Rabbi
Rosenfelt for all the hard work!

Third Grade Trip to the Botanical Gardens! by Ms. Kessler

This past Wednesday, the third-grade children celebrated the first truly beautiful day of Spring, with a trip to the Queens
Botanical Gardens. The children boarded buses at YCQ and sang during the brief ride to the Gardens. When we arrived,
we settled in under a beautiful grove of flowering trees, and shared a delicious picnic lunch. The children climbed trees,
ran up and down the rolling hills, and even found a tree that had been pecked by a woodpecker! After lunch, we were
treated to a guided tour of the Botanical Gardens. We learned about how trees sleep through the winter and wake up in the
Spring. We saw examples of trees “waking up”, by looking at the wide array of colors and flowers on the different trees
found throughout the Garden. The children had the opportunity to hunt for pollen, each scooping pollen out of tulips, and
rubbing it on their hands (children with allergies did not participate….no worries!). We learned about evergreen trees, the
ones that do not lose their leaves in winter and remain green all year. We all learned so much about the different trees that
grow in New York! We ended our trip indoors the children had a chance to plant their own plant, as a “make and take”.
The children had a blast digging in the dirt, touching the roots of their plants, and communing with nature! We got super
dirty…and that is a good thing! A special thanks to the parent volunteers who gave of their time and themselves to ensure
that all of children had adequate supervision on this wonderful trip. Each child should have received a free pass to the
Queens Botanical Garden, so feel free to go back and visit on your own!!

Class Placement Request Form

We hope this letter finds you well and that your children have had a meaningful academic school year, one of
intellectual growth, maturity and social development. As the school year comes to a close, we will once again
begin the important task of properly placing our children in the most appropriate academic and social
environment for the upcoming school year.

Our Yeshiva maintains a philosophy of grouping students in a heterogeneous setting. The heterogeneous
classroom is rich in diversity; academically, socially, culturally and geographically. Studies have shown that
heterogeneity cultivates a variety of skills that assist our students in each stage of development. Children
learn to adapt to new environments, build social skills, and benefit from exposure to other learning styles.

We are fully aware of how important it is for children to feel a sense of familiarity and belonging as they
begin a new school year with new teachers and a more challenging curriculum. As our Yeshiva is firmly
committed to maintaining strong communication and a partnership with families, we are asking you to
suggest three names of students with whom your child would feel comfortable in the classroom setting.
Please make sure to complete a new form for each of your children. We will guarantee at least one of those
three students, but three students MUST be listed in order for us to help you. Please keep in mind that this
form is for friend requests ONLY. Placement with teachers is made in collaboration with current year
teachers and administration.

This information will assist our teachers and administrators as they work on creating the best possible
atmosphere for each child. When children sense that their parents, teachers and administrators are working
closely together in a sincere effort to best place them, the results are sure to be positive.

We recognize that children grow and develop from year to year. For this and other reasons, we will reassess
our groupings on an annual basis, with continued input and communication. It is important to remember
that when students meet new people and learn in new environments, they are less likely to form inappropri-
ate group dynamics and more likely to redefine their individual roles maintaining their identity.
Please click on the link to access the class placement form http://www.ycqweb.com/ClassPlacementForm to
be completed no later than Thursday, May 17. Feel free to include any pertinent information that will as-
sist us in the placement process. Should you be interested in discussing your child’s class placement please
feel free to make an appointment with Rabbi Landsman, by contacting Hadas Vann at 718-793-8500 ext
310.

Thank you for your cooperation and your patience in this matter. We wish you a safe, happy and healthy
summer.

Sincerely,
Yeshiva of Central Queens Administration
