UPCOMING Parshat Toldot By: Rabbi Landsman

EVENTS The name of this week’s parsha Toldot is taken from the opening verse of the parsha: “these

Candle Lighting: are the toldot, the offspring and generations of Yitzchak”. It is therefore understandable that
the parsha should be named and remembered as the parsha of Toldot since it is the key
4:15 operative word. However, there is an exactly similar series of words that begin parshat Noach

Havdallah: 5:14 these are the toldot of Noach. Yet that parsha is not called “Toldot” but rather it is named
Rabbi Wein mentions that for the sake of consistency either our parsha should be named for
Motzai Shabbat Yitzchak or the parsha of Noach should be called Toldot as well. Rabbi Wein teached that the
November 22 naming of the parshiyot of the Torah teaches us important lessons about life and history.
Intergenerational Both Noach and Yitzchak had righteous offspring. Noach had Shem and Yitzchak had Yaakov.
Both also had offspring that were less than righteous. Noach had Cham and Canaan, and
Melave Malka Yitzchak had Eisav as a son. Yet there was a fundamental difference between Noach and
3rd Grade 7PM Yitzchak.

Sun., November 23 Yitzchak possessed a heritage to transmit to Yaakov. The blessings that he bestowed upon his
son were those that he had received from his father Avraham. It is heritage, family and
JHS Parent- national memory and traditions that create toldot, a continuity and connection to generational
bonding and unity.
Child Learning
Program 9-11:30 Noach was without such a background he was a righteous individual, but still only an
individual, who did not see himself in the role of being a nation builder. He did not possess a
BJE HS Entrance father who imbued him with a sense of tradition, family and nationhood. Avraham on the other
hand was described by HaShem, so to speak, as someone who would create a nation after him
Exam Judaic that would follow HaShem’s ways and commandments.
Studies 8th Grade It was this heritage that Yitzchak received. He was also engaged not only in creating
individuals as was Noach but rather in raising toldot national eternal generations that would

Thur. - Friday continue the heritage and holy tradition that he had received from his father. Thus Yitzchak’s
November 27-28 parsha is named Toldot while Noach’s parsha remains only on his name alone.
The Torah itself emphasizes this point by immediately describing Yitzchak as being the son of
Thanksgiving Avraham whereas in the parsha of Noach, the name of the father of Noach no longer appears.

No Sessions The Jewish people as a whole has toldot even as individual Jews may or may not be so

Tues., December 2 The toldot of the Jewish people are based upon shared memory and historical experience,
PT Conferences Torah knowledge and observance, a sense of mission and a strong national identity. The
thread of idealism, of helping others, of goodness and compassion in short, the blessings of our
3:45 Dismissal K-8 father Avraham, run through the Jewish story of the ages.

We often think that material goods and wealth are the stuff of human inheritances. But that is a

false reading of life’s truths. It is the ideals and beliefs and traditions of holiness and Avodat

YCQ Family News HaShem that are the true heritage of Israel and guarantee that the people of Israel will always
have toldot. Have a Shabbat Shalom!

Goldberg a"h. Beloved Spotlight on New Faculty
mother of our dear Hello! My name is Mr. Daniel Walz. As an alumnus of YCQ myself, I have always
friend and colleague had a strong connection to the faculty here at the school. The teachers that taught me
Dr. Paul Goldberg when I was a student at YCQ have guided me and shaped me to be the person I am
(Computer Teacher) now. They have had such a positive influence on me that I chose to be an educator

Shiva will be observed just like them. I teach mathematics to the Junior High School grades. I enjoy teach-
at the Goldberg home, ing immensely and am excited to watch the students grow. What I love most about
260 Lincoln Blvd., teaching at YCQ is not only teaching the students but learning from them as well!

Challah Baking in 1-201

This past Friday, class 1-201, baked their very own Challot for Shabbat! In Parshat
Chayei Sara, the children learned about the miracle that occurred with Sara's
Challa. Morah Fendel said the Bracha, and the children answered amen! The children
then each braided and glazed their own Challot to fulfill the special Mitzvah of Challah.

Bat Mitzvah Workshop

Last Wednesday the sixth grade girls and their mothers shared a special evening
together in honor of the girls becoming Bnot Mitzvah. The program began with a
Dvar Torah from Rabbi Landsman, followed by an inspiring description of the
entire Bat Mitzvah year from Morah Hadas then Mrs. Golubchik spoke about the
“3 P’s” of a Bat Mitvah (preparation, procedure and party). Mrs. Marcy
Davidovics, led a “Values Clarification Session” with mothers and daughters.
Mrs. Tzirel Goldchmeidt, YCQ dance instructor, led the girls and their mothers in
simcha dancing, Rochelle Winkour gave a beautiful Dvar Torah, and everyone
partook in a delicious dinner catered by “Carlos and Gabby’s”. It was a most
beautiful and memorable evening.

“Tzitzit! Strings Attached! Don’t Leave Home Without It!”

This past Sunday at Parent-Child Learning we had the honor of hearing Rabbi Finkelstein. He shared
stories of inspiration describing the importance of wearing Tzitzit. Rabbi Finkelstein discussed many
of the Halachot of Tzitzit, and he reminded the students that the Tzitzit remind you of the six hundred
and thirteen mitzvot that we are obligated to keep! He also reminded students and parents that each day
when they put on their Tzitzit they should make sure to say a bracha, check the strings to make sure
each strand is separated from the other, and appreciate the opportunity and the privilege that we have to
serve HaShem through performing this most important mitzvah!

Kindergarten Rain Program

In honor of the month of Cheshvan, when we daven for rain in Israel, the Kindergarten
students experienced a hands-on rain program with music, movement and dance. Morah
Toby Jacobowitz, music educator, gave the children scarves and flowers and had them
move to different kinds of music representing the gentle rain and heavy rain falling in
Eretz Yisrael. The children had a wonderful time dancing around the room to the music!
