UPCOMING Parshat Noach By: Rabbi Landsman

EVENTS The sequence of expression in the opening pasukim of our parsha
is noteworthy. The Torah begins "And these are the offspring of
Candle Lighting: Noach" (Eleh toldot Noach), which would lead us to expect that we will be
5:44 immediately told the names of Noach's children. However, the Torah
first says, "Noach was a righteous man, perfect in his generations". Only
Havdallah: 6:43 after that does the Torah continue, "Noach had three sons: Shem, Cham,
Sun., October 26 and Yafet." It seems that the description of Noach's righteousness is out
5th-8th Parent of place in the narrative. Rashi comments on this unusual sequence
Child Learning and says this teaches that the main offspring of righteous people are
their good deeds. The true descendants of a Tzadik are not the physical
9-11:30 children he leaves behind, but his acts of kindness.

Tues., October 28 This is truly an amazing statement. We are all in this world as a
BJE H.S. Entrance result of Noach. What is the greatest legacy that Noach left behind in the
world? One would say, that the answer is simple: humanity! The fact
Exam General that there are people in this world is the greatest legacy that Noach
Studies could leave. Rabbi Frand explains that the pasuk is teaching us that
this is not true. Noach's greatest legacy (as is the case with all Tzadikim)
8th Grade 1:00 PM were his good deeds! We are commanded to have children but children
are also human beings. They are not eternal. However, there is some-
New Family thing we can do in this world that is eternal and never ceases to exist,
Welcome Reception namely our good deeds! This is an amazing statement.

8PM The Medrash says that the wife of Noach was Naamah, a
descendant of Kayin. We are told about some of Cain's other
Wed., October 29 descendants. One was Yaval, who founded the cattle and shepherd
8th Grade industry. Another was Yuval. He was the first musician. A third
descendant, Tuval Kayin, was the first metalworker. He fashioned metal
Parents High School into swords. All of these individuals died. The flood wiped out their
Night 8PM descendants and their legacies. Naamah, on the other hand, is the only
descendant of Kayin to survive. Why did she survive? Rabbi Frand
Sun., November 2 explains that she was called Na'amah because her actions were "Naim
Set Clock Back u'neimim" they were pleasant and brought pleasure to others.
One Hour
The point is that accomplishments, even creating major
5th-8th Child industries, music, and so forth are all fine and good but they are not
Parent Learning eternal. They do not last forever. The only thing in this world that is truly
Program 9-11:30 eternal is spirituality and good deeds. This is the point of the
aforementioned teaching of our Sages: The major offspring of the
Wed., November 5 righteous is their good deeds.

7th Grade Boys Healthy and Wise Nutrition Program: By: Mrs. Aliza Solomon, YCQ Nutritionist
7PM Our Healthy & Wise program has begun! The nursery and kindergarten students learned a
song called “Today I Ate a Rainbow”, which reminds us to eat fruits and vegetables in all the
Sun., November 9 colors of the rainbow so we can get all the vitamins we need. They also showed off some
YCQ Pre School exercise moves so their muscles can become stronger. The first grade students made healthy
food picnic baskets for our bulletin board to show the healthy snacks we are allowed to
Open House 10AM bring to YCQ, such as fruits and vegetables, rice cakes, yogurt, and cheese. The second and
third grade students played Health & Nutrition Bingo to remember that being healthy is not
Tues., November 11 only about eating right, it’s about exercising, sleeping, and washing our hands too. The
Veterans Day vocabulary word of the month is ‘variety’, which means choosing different healthy foods to
eat throughout the day.

Yeshiva of Central Queens 1962 Alumni Reunion

Over 50 years ago a class of over 60 students graduated from the Yeshiva of Central Queens at that
time located in Richmond Hill. On Sunday, October 19, 2014, more than half of those students got to-
gether for a reunion here in Queens. The event was held at YCQ. The alumni association at YCQ un-
der the leadership of Rabbi Marc Merrill, is working on gathering bios’ from the students of this class
as well as others to not only invite them to future alumni events and programs being planned, but also
to make information accessible to former students to stay in touch with each other. The Class of ’62 is
spread out all over. Many have made their homes in Israel and in various locations in the United
States. It was interesting finding out what people have been doing, where they are living, about their
families and careers, and especially nice to hear that so many have moved to Israel. During the reunion,
the class was treated to a video “then and now,” as well as took time to go around the room with every-
one telling about what they have been doing since they were last together, they just talked and laughed
and enjoyed this time together.

AFTER YCQ STUDENTS HELP THOSE IN NEED, SCHOOL LOOKS AHEAD TO NOVEMBER 9 OPEN HOUSE

In advance of the holiday of Sukkot, the Junior High School students from the Yeshiva of Central Queens (YCQ) fanned out
into the community as part of a “Day of Chesed.” People can learn more about YCQ’s innovative programming at its Open
House on Sunday, November 9 at 10:00 AM.
As they do several times a year in advance of the Jewish holidays, the Yeshiva of Central Queens (YCQ) Junior High School
students embarked on a “Day of Chesed” (Day of Kindness) just prior to the holiday of Sukkot in order to help individuals in
need of assistance prepare for the holiday in a variety of ways. The “Day of Chesed” is one of YCQ’s many novel programs
and innovative teaching methods.
The full range of YCQ’s quality religious and general studies programs will be on display during the school’s upcoming inter-
active Open House, which will take place on Sunday morning, November 9 beginning at 10:00 AM. YCQ is located at 147-37
70th Road in Kew Gardens Hills.
The YCQ students visited Boulevard ALP, an assisted living community in Flushing, Meadow Park Rehabilitation & Health
Care Center in Fresh Meadows, Woodcrest Rehabilitation & Residential Health Care Center in Flushing, Cliffside Rehabilita-
tion and Residential Healthcare Center in Flushing, Margaret Tietz Nursing & Rehabilitation Center in Jamaica, and Atria Sen-
ior Living in Forest Hills, where they hung beautiful decorations for the residents to enjoy, as well as played games and inter-
acted with the residents of the various facilities.
“It felt good to make other people smile,” said Shira Schwartz, a sixth grade student from Woodmere who went to the Cliffside
Rehabilitation and Residential Healthcare Center.
In addition, the YCQ students also visited Masbia, a soup kitchen and food pantry, where they helped prepare meals for the
needy, Bobbie’s Place, a not-for-profit organization that provides clothing to children of all ages throughout the New York
metropolitan area, where they helped prepare the store for Sukkot, and the Hebrew Academy for Special Children (HASC),
which provides a wide range of services to children with special needs, where they made Sukkah decorations with the HASC
students.
“I felt happy doing things for other people and not just for me,” said Rebecca Boim, a seventh grader from Jamaica Estates
who visited Masbia.
“It was great helping people who don’t have as much as we do,” said Gal Levy, a seventh grader from Kew Gardens Hills who
went to Bobbie’s Place.
The students from YCQ also spent time learning about the laws of Sukkot with children from OHEL Bais Ezra, an organiza-
tion that meets the needs of children with developmental disabilities and their families.
“It felt good learning about Sukkot with the Bais Ezra guys,” said Noah Apelbaum, a seventh grade student from Hollis Hills.
“We worked together and you couldn’t tell the difference between us.”
“Rather than limiting our students’ learning solely to classroom instruction, we frequently engage in experiential and interac-
tive programs that empower and encourage our students to perform acts of kindness for others,” said Rabbi Mark Landsman,
the Principal of YCQ. “At YCQ we utilize a broad array of teaching methods in order to instill in our students strong Torah
values and a solid ethical and moral base, which enable them to grow academically, socially, and religiously.”
Rabbi Landsman noted that he is looking forward to meeting with prospective parents at the school’s Open House on Novem-
ber 9 and sharing with them the quality academic and religious programs that YCQ offers to its over 900 students and their
families.
The YCQ Open House will feature guided tours of the yeshiva and a stimulating first-grade lesson for parents, which will in-
clude a session on YCQ’s progressive Hebrew immersion program. While the parents are occupied with the programming re-
lating to the adults, their children will enjoy interactive lessons with YCQ’s Kindergarten staff.
YCQ features smart-board technology in every classroom, a state-of-the-art science lab, two fully equipped computer labs, and
separate classes for boys and girls beginning in fourth-grade. The school also offers an assortment of after-school programs
and clubs, including Mishmar, chess, band instruction, drama, dance, and much more. In addition, YCQ runs an extensive
sports program, including a boys junior varsity basketball team, which won the league championship last year, a varsity boys
basketball team, a girls basketball team, and a hockey team.
Free transportation to YCQ is available from Queens, the Five Towns, West Hempstead, and Great Neck.
“We take great pride in the fact that we are able to regularly incorporate progressive and exciting educational initiatives into
our academic curriculum, while simultaneously building upon the fundamental principles that were established at the inception
of our school 74 years ago,” said Rabbi Landsman. “Enabling our students to achieve a bright future, both academically and in
the context of Judaism, is the hallmark of our school and the guiding principle which motivates us to continue enhancing our
first-rate programming on a consistent basis.”
