UPCOMING Parsha VaYeshev By: Rabbi Landsman

EVENTS Rabbi Wein teaches that in this week’s parsha, our father Yaakov marks a moment of great

Candle Lighting: transition in the story of the establishment of the Jewish people as a national entity. Until Yaakov’s
4:10 family appears on the scene, the story of Judaism and Jews is one of lonely and singular individuals.
Avraham has to break away from the idolatrous home of Terach and wander to fulfill his dream of
Havdallah: 5:10 monotheism and morality. He is forced to make hard choices within his own family circle as to who
his successor in this mission of nation building will be.
Motzai Shabbat, His faithful servant Eliezer is eliminated from the succession contest as is Yishmael and the
December 13 numerous other children that Avraham sired. For only in Yitzchak will Avraham find a successor to
further his ideals, beliefs and value system of life. Yitzchak is also faced with a winnowing process in
PA Family Evening designating an heir to the vision and destiny of his father Avraham.
Though he attempts to somehow salvage Eisav as well, in the end he fully recognizes that only
Sunday Dec, 14 through Yaakov can the mission, of uniqueness and Godliness that is to become the Jewish people,

2-204, 2-207

Tuesday Dec. 16 be fulfilled. Until Yaakov’s family arrives on the scene, the heritage and vision of morality and
Erev Chanukah monotheism is entrusted only to one member of the family while the others so to speak are

Thursday Dec. 18 discarded by the wayside of history.
But Yaakov fathers twelve sons and a daughter. Is the pattern of only one of them being the true
Presentations heir of Yaakov’s dream and mission to be repeated in his family as well? Past family history seems to

Preschool indicate that such a scenario was possible if not even probable.

Monday Dec. 22 This perhaps explains the reaction of the brothers to the favoritism exhibited by Yaakov towards
NO SESSIONS Yosef. The brothers were apprehensive that the mission of Avraham, Yitzchak and Yaakov would
Rosh Chodesh again be entrusted to only an individual only to one of them and the other members of the family
would again be historically discarded. And that chosen brother, judging by their father’s favoritism
Wed. Dec. 24 to him, would be Yosef.
NO BUS SERVICE They also felt that Yosef was the incorrect choice for solely carrying on the heritage and mission that
began with their grandfather Avraham. What they failed to grasp was that Yaakov and his family
Friday Dec. 26 now marked the great transition, from Judaism being the faith and belief of individuals to now

Sunday Dec. 28 being the religion which would be embodied in a people, a society, and a national entity.
Since no two individuals are alike physically, mentally, or emotionally, the people that would
JHS Parent-Child emanate from Yaakov and his family would be made up of diverse individuals and ideas. But the
cement and glue that would bind them all together would be the vision and faith of Judaism that
Program 9-11:30

Mon-Wed. was their common heritage and would be their common destiny as well.

December 29-31 It is much more difficult for a large group of people to retain a special identity and sense of mission

NO BUS SERVICE than it is for an individual alone. The story of Yosef and the brothers that marks the concluding

sections of the book of Bereshith is the supreme illustration of the challenge of molding individuals

YCQ Family News who are inherently different into a common and effective nation. This challenge still remains with us

Second Grade Chumash Presentation

Class 2-205 and 2-206 finally received their Chumashim this past Sunday! For months they
had been preparing for this momentous day. They learned about the Chumash, how to find the
Psukim, and how to read and understand them. They wanted to share all that they do and
learn with their parents and families. They put on a beautiful show about the creation of the
world. After a wonderful and exciting show, each student received their very own Chumash
with his or her name engraved on it. The class learned the first ten Psukim together in front
of their families and friends, and afterward enjoyed some treats and a cake. Mazel tov to all
the second graders! It is so inspiring to see their love for Torah! Many thanks to Morah Reut,
Morah Michal, Morah Rina, Morah Tali, Rabbi Hamel, Mr. Weinstock, Morah Maxine, Rabbi Ei-
senberg and parent representatives for making this day so memorable!

Sixth Grade Visits Yeshiva Chofetz Chaim

On Thursday, the sixth grade boys had the privilege of going to Yeshiva Chofetz Chaim where
they met with the Rosh HaYeshiva, Rabbi Grunblatt. Rabbi Grunblatt inspired the boys with the
story of Rabbi Akiva, listening to the shiur, while on the roof of the Yeshiva. Rabbi Grunblatt
pointed out the importance of understanding the depth of Torah, beyond the superficial
understanding. Then Rabbi Grunblatt answered a few questions that the boys asked. Before
leaving, each boy personally introduced himself to Rabbi Grunblatt.
