UPCOMING Parshat Tzav/ Shabbat Hagadol
EVENTS
By: Rabbi Landsman
Candle Lighting: 6:56
Havdalah: 7:58 The parsha of Tzav more often than not, coincides with the Shabbat preceding Pesach –
Shabbat Hagadol, the “great Shabbat.” At first glance there does not seem to be any inherent
Thursday April 2 connection between the parsha of Tzav , Shabbat Hagadol and Pesach. However, since Judaism
Pesach Vacation little recognizes randomness or happenstance regarding Jewish life, and certainly regarding Torah
Bedikat Chometz itself, a further analysis of the parsha may reveal to us an underlying connection between Tzav and
Pesach. This underlying theme lies in the description that the parsha contains, regarding the
Monday April 13 consecration of Aharon and his sons as the priests and servants of God and Israel. Judaism teaches
Sessions Resume us that freedom equals responsibility. Freedom without limits or purpose is destructive anarchy.
The entire narrative of the Torah regarding the construction of the Mishkan and the institution of
Lice Check public worship/sacrifices came to emphasize to the freed slaves from Egypt their newfound
responsibilities. The rabbis cogently and correctly defined freedom in terms of obligations and
Thursday April 16 study of Torah, as opposed to the alleged freedom of hedonism. The consecration of Aharon and
Special Programs his sons, coinciding with the consecration and dedication of the Mishkan itself brought home to
Commemorating Yom the Jewish people the requirement of community service and national unity.
Look at the freedom movements that have arisen in the Middle East over the past few years and the
HaShoah chaos and deaths of tens of thousands of people that followed in their wake. The inability to create
unity, to develop a moral and tangible national goals mocks all pretenses of positive freedom.
Tuesday April 21 Without Aharon and the Mishkan the promise of the freedom of Pesach would have remained
permanently unfulfilled.
Parents Association Rabbi Wein teaches that part of the lesson of the Great Shabbat is that without Shabbat, Jewish
Meeting freedom is only an illusion. Shabbat is truly the epitome of freedom. The absence of workday
8:30 PM activities, the sense of family and friends, and of the contentment that Shabbat engenders all,
combine to create a vision of true freedom that is attainable and real.
Wed. April 22 The Great Shabbat that precedes Pesach gives it its true meaning and places the anniversary of our
Yom Hazikaron freedom from Egyptian bondage into holy perspective. Freedom to toil 24/7 is only a different
Special Programs form of slavery. When Saturday looks like Tuesday, but only more so since school is out and the
burdens of car pooling and “having a good time” are even greater, then that cannot even remotely
Thursday April 23 be related to true freedom. In reality every Shabbat is the Great Shabbat and the Shabbat
Yom Haátzmaut preceding Pesach is even more so. Shabbat Hagadol represents the miracle that blessed our
Special Programs forefathers in Egypt when they took the Paschal lamb and the Egyptians did not object. But the
true and ultimate miracle of Shabbat Hagadol, is Shabbat itself. It has preserved the Jewish people
YCQ Family News throughout the ages in the face of opposing innumerable odds and challenges. It is in the
realization of our freedom that we are able to properly appreciate and give tribute to Shabbat -
Mazel Tov to Jordan Shabbat Hagadol, the Great Shabbat that we now commemorate so joyfully and gratefully.

Seventh Grade Visits the Museum of Tolerance

The seventh grade had a very meaningful visit to the Museum of Tolerance. Our ELA
unit on Tolerance came alive with the many hands-on exhibits we saw. We began with a
cyber-bullying video where we were able to ask the bullies, the victim and the
bystander questions. We then saw the consequences of hate speech and the plethora
of internet sites out there preaching racism, anti-Semitism and more. We ended the
tour in the Hall of Memory with a touching Holocaust video. The students asked
many thoughtful questions and participated a lot. It was a memorable experience for
everyone. A special thank you to Morah Maisel for coordinating this trip!

Sunday Learning Program Concludes

Sunday, March 22, was the last YCQ Parent Child Learning Program for the year.
Rabbi Finestone gave an amazing talk on how we need to look for Hashem amidst
tragedy. He is always there despite us not always seeing Him. The learning program is
a wonderful experience for students to get to learn on a Sunday morning with their
parents. Eitan Adler, fifth grader, said he loves coming to the program, “I enjoy this
time learning and spending time with my father”. Thank you to Rabbi Bernstein for
coordinating this event!

Names Not Numbers

On Monday night, March 23, YCQ hosted Holocaust survivors and their
families at our annual Names Not Numbers dinner. Students spent time
getting to know the survivors they worked with and interviewed them in
order to create a film that shared their experiences. After dinner, close to
150 people watched the film produced by our own eighth grade students as
they shared a living tribute to the Holocaust. Thanks to our faculty advisor,
Mrs. Ruth Rosenberg, for all her hard work and supervision.

YCQ Hosts Yachad Shabbaton

On Shabbat Vayikra, YCQ hosted a Yachad Shabbaton with over 100
participants sharing together in the ruach of Shabbat. The atmosphere had
an air of camp despite the snow on the first day of spring. At each meal, a
student from YCQ, as well as a Yachad member shared an interesting
dvar torah. Participants, counselors, YCQ eighth graders and staff members
all joined in the Shabbat meals and participated in davening, games, and
singing. It was an amazing, warm, fun-filled Shabbat! Thank you to Mrs.
Ayelet Katz, our Chesed Coordinator, for organizing this event!
