UPCOMING Parshat Shemini/Parshat Parah By: Rabbi Landsman

EVENTS This week's parsha contains the first detailed enumeration of all the ko-

Candle Lighting: 6:50 sher and non-kosher animals in the Torah. The two signs that determine the

Havdallah: 7:51 permissibility of an animal are whether it has totally split hooves and whether

Sun., March 23 it chews its cud. The Torah singles out particular animals that one may not

Parent-Child The gamal (camel), despite the fact that it chews its cud, is not kosher be-

Learning Program cause it does not have split hooves. The same is true with the shafan (hyrax)

9-11 and arnevet (rabbit). The chazir (pig) is forbidden because although it has

Tues., March 25 split hooves, it does not chew its cud.

Science Fair Rabbi Frand quotes the Medrash which points out, that with regard to

6th Grade 7PM all four animals, the Torah first mentions its kosher sign, (the fact that it

Sun., March 30 chews its cud in the case of the gamal, shafan and arnevet, and (the fact that
it has split hooves in the case of the chazir), and then mentions the sign that

Anniversary Dinner disqualifies it. Why does the Torah do this? Why not just get straight to the
point? The kosher sign is really irrelevant, given the other disqualifying char-

Wednesday, April 23 billing"?

Pesach Vacation The Medrash comments: Even when the Torah tells us that a pig or

Thursday, April 24 camel is not kosher, it only begins by stating its praiseworthy characteristics.
Sessions Resume When the Torah says something is non-kosher, the Torah still goes out of its

way to present a positive description first.

YCQ Family News The point of the Medrash is that even when talking about an impure

Mazal Tov to Morah Fried animal, try to find something good to say about it. If HaShem sees fit to al-

(5-300 and 5-301) on the ways present a redeeming aspect of the animal first, how much more so
engagement of her should we, when we look at another human being with all of their failings and
daughter, Morah shortcomings, we should make every effort to find some positive things to
say before we offer any negative assessment.
Hadas Fried (6th Grade
Navi and Administrative

Assistant) HaShem is sending us a message. When we look at someone or when
Mazal Tov Gavriel Kaplan we look at a situation, we should always attempt to accentuate the positive
and see the value in the person or situation before we become dismissive.

YCQ Fi h Grader Meets the US Senator from New Hampshire

Fi h grader Yaffa Reichwald had the honor of mee ng US Senator Kelly Ayo e of New Hampshire this
week at the home of Dr. Joe and Karen Frager in Jamaica Estates.
Senator Ayo e was on her way to Israel to meet Prime Minister
Benjamin Netanyahu and made the stop in Queens before head‐
ing to the airport. This is not her first visit to Israel and she is a
strong and passionate supporter. Yaffa showed the Senator her
Western Hemis"fair" board which was about her state of New
Hampshire. They discussed the origins of the pumpkin and the
Senator said that she was surprised to learn that it is a fruit and
not a vegetable. She signed Yaffa's board and told her that she
did a terrific job. The Senator has two children, Katherine age 9
and Jacob age 6. Senator Ayo e
is the youngest of the 20 female
United States Senators. Yaffa
was invited to email the Sena‐
tor and hopes to keep in touch
with her. Yaffa Reichwald said,
"I hope that one day she runs
for President."

4‐305 Brings Persuasive Wri ng “To Life”
Last Friday, 4‐305 welcomed our special guest Ms. Fran Frank, Shiffy’s mom. Ms. Frank is a writer for
Fox News on TV. She spoke to us about how important persuasive wri ng is in her job, because she has
to arouse and keep peoples’ interest, even when the news may not be too interes ng. Some ps Ms.
Frank shared with us for our wri ng was on how to come up with catchy beginnings and how to do re‐
search, as well as reminding us to focus on the 5Ws in the body of our wri ng. We thoroughly enjoyed
asking Ms. Frank lots of interes ng and thought‐provoking ques ons in a brief Q & A session. Thank
you again for sharing a glimpse into the exci ng real life of a news writer, and we plan to incorporate
everything we learned into our future wri ng.
