UPCOMING Parshat Behaalotcha By: Rabbi Landsman
EVENTS
Parshat Behaalotcha is a rollercoaster in terms of the historical events of the Jewish people.
Candle Lighting: 8:02 On the one hand we find Moshe excitedly inviting Yitro to accompany Bnai Yisrael, as "nosim
Havdalah: 9:11 anachnu - we are going". One can sense the enthusiasm as even Moshe is planning to enter the
Promised Land. Immediately after the two pesukim bounded by the inverted nuns, Jewish history
Sunday, June 3 becomes inverted and a rapid decline begins, with the nation bemoaning and mourning its plight. This
Celebrate Israel Parade is followed by the sending of the spies and the rest is tragic history.
Mandatory Attendance
What is especially uncharacteristic is the role of Moshe in the backsliding of the people.
4-8 Moshe throws his hands up in desperation and frustration and responds to their complaints regarding
their unhappiness with the additional laws of morality they were now bound by and their desiring
Wednesday—Thursday, meat rather than the divine diet of man by saying "are they my children? Did I give birth to them?"
June 6-7 "Help Me" cries Moshe, "if not, please kill me and put an end to my misery." In contrast, when the
Jewish people worshiped the golden calf, Moshe rose to the occasion and defended their idolatrous
Washington Trip backsliding. Moshe reminded Hashem where they were for two hundred and ten years, and despite the
8th Grade open miracles they saw and experienced, their being steeped in Egyptian culture could explain and
defend their sin. Moshe had all the necessary patience and tolerance for His people. Yet here, by
Monday June 11 kivrat haTaavah, the same Moshe asks, "Am I their nursemaid?"
Finals Begin 8th Grade
Rabbi Benjamin Yudin, Rabbi of Congregation Shomerei Torah in Fair Lawn NJ quotes the
Literacy Festival Rav, HaRav Yosef Dov HaLevi Soloveitchik zt"l who suggested the following explanation: Moshe saw
Grades 2,4,5 his role as the nation's teacher. As such, he understood that he had to respond to the theological issues
and questions of the students - the issue of tzaddik v'ra lo (why the seemingly good people suffer) is a
Tuesday, June 12 real issue that he must grapple with and regarding which he must guide the people. Moshe assumed
Literacy Festival that teaching them how to navigate the written Torah with the Oral Law, adjudicating their quarrels,
Grades 1,3 were integral parts of his job description. However Moshe did not realize that teaching middot,
developing their character, and shaping their personality to make them worthy of absorbing and
Wednesday, June 13 accepting Hashem's Torah was incumbent upon him as well. Moshe, to his surprise, was in fact now
Chagigat Bnot Mitzvah elevated to the position of omain, nursemaid and molder of character to this nation. By proclaiming
"did I give birth to this nation?" Moshe was saying, "You, Hashem, created them with the genes
6th Grade Girls implanted within them, and there is nothing I can do to change their nature" and hence Moshe's
7PM feeling of desperation and total inadequacy. Hashem, however, instructs him otherwise!

Thursday, June 14 Moshe, who had willingly taught them deot, law and theology, now realizes that he also has
Finals Begin 7th Grade to be a "middot guide" to them. "Gedola shimusha yoter milimuda attending and serving one's teacher
is even greater than studying Torah under him”, as one learns refinement of character from his
Sunday, June 17 teachers every day acts. Moshe now gained an additional understanding of the passuk, "Moshe
Father’s Day descended from the mountain to the people and sanctified the people". Polishing and attending to their
middot as well as what, how, when and with whom they eat are all the rebbe's concern. Moreover, the
Thursday, June 18 primary way to learn the golden mean is to observe and emulate a rebbe. How the rebbe eats, sleeps,
Graduation Practice interacts with others and his calm demeanor are all prerequisites for Torah study and observance.

10AM-1PM The Beit Halevi as a child prodigy noted from a challenging Rashi that the Torah itself gives
Senior Dinner preference to middot over deot. Hashem says, "naaseh adam: let us make man". Rashi notes that even
though the verse could lead to faulty deot by being misunderstood to insinuate that there is more than
8th Grade one G-D, Hashem still chose to orchestrate the creation of man by accompanying his formulation with
Thursday, June 14 a most significant lesson of middot, that the great should consult and give respect to those lower than
Finals Begin 7th Grade themselves.
Tuesday, June 19
Nursery “Moving Up” May we ever be inspired by Moshe Rabbeinu and be cognizant not only of our responsibility
to teach deot to those around us, but even more importantly to demonstrate derech eretz kadma
Ceremony laTorah.

MY HEART IN A SUITCAUSE By: Dr. Judy Stoner
On Thursday, May 24th, the fourth and fifth grade classes watched the performance
by Arts Power National Touring Theatre of “My Heart in a Suitcase,” a one-act play
based on the book by Anne L. Fox. This profoundly moving performance depicted the
Kindertransport and its effect on a Jewish family living in Berlin during the time of
the Holocaust. The students engaged in meaningful discussion after viewing the
performance. Thank you Mrs. Sandra Dua for arranging this amazing meaningful event!

SIXTH GRADE ENVIRONMENTAL SCAVENGER HUNT

Through inquiry, sixth-grade students went on a Nature Scavenger Hunt by
investigating characteristics of renewable and non-renewable resources in our environment.
They classified their findings, used a document camera and Smartboard to share and
explain the objects, as well as comparing and contrasting their findings. Thank you to Mrs.
Muller for organizing this special learning experience!

Mishna Siyum With Rabbi Nat

On Tuesday night, May 29, the boys in Rabbi Nat’s Mishna club made a siyum on Mishnayot
Bava Batra. Every Tuesday evening, select students from grades six through eight stayed after
school and learned Mishnayot on a very high level with Rabbi Nat. At the celebratory siyum,
parents, and children got together at Annie Chans’ Restaurant, enjoyed a delicious Chinese
buffet and had a chance to hear from each and every student as they summarized the entire
mashechet. Mazel Tov to all students and to Rabbi Nat on this beautiful accomplishment! May
they continue to grow in their learning and soar higher and higher.

Grade 5 Transition Night

The fifth graders experienced a slice of Junior High school on Wednesday night, May 30th, at Transition Night!
They participated with their parent(s) in multiple short workshops detailing social emotional changes, programming,
logistics, and expectations. The students asked wonderful questions and became familiar with the new building, their
upcoming principals, and some of their potential teachers. Rabbi Landsman spoke about this special milestone in their
life and we are excited to welcome them at the end of the summer to the next phase in their development! Thank
you to Mrs. Marcy Davidovics, as well as Mrs. Golubtchik, Rabbi Hamel, and Rabbi Landsman for their informative
presentations.

Final Debate of the Year

The YCQ debate team completed a very successful year with its debate at HANC on
May 24. Over the course of the year, our debaters worked diligently and with great
dedication resulting in very positive results. We owe a hakarat hatov to our terrific
team with special recognition going to Aaron Sisser, Michael Gersten, Eli Canter, Tzvi
Bromberg, and Jeremy
Varnai who received
trophies for their
outstanding performance.
Mrs. BenHabib wants to
express her appreciation to
the entire team for their
wonderful spirit, hard
work and achievements
this year and anticipates
an exciting year to come.

YCQ RECEIVES NO PLACE FOR HATE AWARD

On Friday May 25th, the Mix it Up anti-bullying club was invited to a
special Recognition Ceremony sponsored by the Anti Defamation League.
This event took place in Manhattan. Yeshiva of Central Queens is one of
the schools recognized for our hard work and many activities throughout
the year promoting tolerance, respect and inclusion. This is our second
year named as a “No Place For Hate School”. We were also given a spe-
cial honor for our extra effort this year with a gold star on our banner. It
was a moving day that we shared with other No Place For Hate Schools
around the tri-state area. Yeshiva of Central Queens is the only Yeshiva
that is a No Place For Hate school. We felt extra proud many other school
asked us which Jewish school we were from. Thanks to Akiva Sokol,
David Arshadnia, Eva Lalo, Liat Gigi and Talya Katri for joining Mrs.
Maisel on this special day. Thanks to the entire Mix it Up Club for their
tireless work and dedication!
