UPCOMING Parshat Terumah By: Rabbi Landsman

President’s Day that permeated the Beit Hamikdash: The Kodesh Hakodoshim (Holy of Holies) was

Shabbat, Feb 24 endowed with a greater degree of sanctity than the Heichal (Sanctuary), which in

9:00-11:30 In delineating the gradations of holiness the mishna emphasizes that there

Thursday, March 1 daily basis. The practical ramifications of levels of sanctity, are also seen in the

realm of time. Shabbat is holier than Yom Tov and this is reflected by practical

differences such as the permissibility of certain activities on Yom Tov that are

Sunday, March 4 The mishna highlights other halachic distinctions between Eretz Yisroel and
UPK In Session
5-8 Grade Parent-Child the rest of the world. For example The original Semicha, the transmission of tradition

handed from teacher to student dating back to Moshe can only be conferred in Eretz

Sunday, March 7
Parent-Teacher These two halachot point to a third dimension of Eretz Yisroel's uniqueness, its

Conferences primacy as the place of Torah study. Only there can the authentic chain of

UPK In Session Torah scholars of the highest level are given the authority to decide this matter

which affects the entire Jewish people.
Learning Program
9:00-11:30 The fact that Eretz Yisroel, as a place is the pinnacle of Talmud Torah, is

YCQ Family News closely linked to its unique role as being the outermost precinct of the Beit

Mazel Tov to Mrs. Hamikdash. Rabbi Tzvi Sobolofsky, Rosh Yeshiva, Yeshiva University, quotes the
Daniella Leichtung
(1-201) on the birth of a Ramban who explains that a primary purpose of the mishkan was to enable the Har

baby girl! Sinai experience to remain alive for eternity. The luchot were at the center of

Mazel Tov to Avi Beylus the mishkan, and later the beit hamikdash. The mishkan, besides being a place
on his Bar Mitzvah!
for korbanot, was also the center of Torah. It is for this reason that the Sanhedrin sat

in the Beit Hamikdash. If Eretz Yisroel is the outermost area of the Beit Hamikdash,

it is also the outermost area blessed with this unique aspect of Torah. Har

Sinai remains alive in the Beit Hamikdash and, by extension, throughout Eretz

Yisroel. For unique Torah experiences such as semicha and declaration of Rosh

Chodesh, only a place which is a continuation of Har Sinai is acceptable. Eretz

Yisroel, as the outermost precinct of the Beit Hamikdash, qualifies for these mitzvot.

Following the descriptions of ma'amad Har Sinai in Parshat

Yitro and Mishpatim, we are given Parshat Terumah to keep the experiences alive.

To visit the Beit Hamikdash is to revisit Har Sinai. To learn Torah in Eretz Yisroel is

to enter the mikdash and reconnect to Har Sinai. Shabbat Shalom

The Cat In the Hat

This past Monday the Kindergarten and First Grade went to Queens College to see the show The Cat in
the Hat. Everyone had an amazing time. We all loved the music and dancing. Our favorite part was at
the end when our own Shiran Besalal got to ask the actors a question in front of the entire audience.
We laughed and we sang, no doubt about that. We came and we saw him the Cat in the Hat. We
clapped and laughed and giggled right at them; what a great way to start Adar and a Happy Purim.

Digital Citizenship

This past Monday and Tuesday, the administrators and Social Work Department ran the Digital Citizenship program for our
fourth through eighth grade. Nuanced differences were made for each grade level to make the program age
appropriate. The students were quiet and focused as Rabbi Landsman gave over meaningful stories about the importance of
navigating technology in a moral, educational, behavioral and Torah-invested way. The workshop concepts were designed
by Mrs. Michali Friedman. Students are learning how to navigate the fine line between productive technological use and the
negative influence of technological use. There will be a Part 2 of this program in two weeks for fifth through eighth
graders.

YCQ Hosts Yachad Shabbaton

On Shabbat Mishpatim, YCQ hosted a Yachad Shabbaton with over 100
participants sharing together in the ruach of Shabbat. 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!

Sunday Morning Learning

This past Sunday we had a special Sunday morning Parent/Child learning program. The learning was dedicated
in memory of YCQ's good friend and long time board member Mr. Meir Mishkoff a"h.
Mr. Mishkoff's son, Noam, a YCQ graduate began the learning with a dvar Torah and with thanking YCQ for
its many years of friendship. He delivered an important lesson from the Parsha that when doing
something, we need to do it with our 100% undivided focus. Our whole being needs to be in what we do.
Rabbi Finkelstein then spoke briefly remembering Mr. Mishkoff as a friend who always had a warm smile on
his face. Rabbi Finkelstein then presented a shiur about Hashgacha Pratit - we are always in the right place at
the right time. We all can look back at so many parts of our lives and ask "what if one detail would have been
slightly different" - how very different would the story of our lives been?". He then connected it to Purim and
how the story of Purim had many "what ifs".

The International Young Israel Movement (IYIM - Israel Branch) has a number of innovative and enriching
programs that empower and educate Jews in Israel across socio-economic and religio-political divides.

Purim is a major time for positive programming at IYIM and it is with great joy and pride that we invite you and
your congregants to take part in our unique Purim projects. These projects are being organized in memory of
Meir Mishkoff z’l who founded and worked tirelessly on these projects for the last 15+ years.

● 10,000 Mishloach Manot for the Brave Soldiers of the IDF – in conjunction with ZOA Brooklyn,
Yashar LChayal and World Mizrachi. With your help, we are hoping to break the 10,000 mark in this
annual campaign.

Packages are hand delivered in a 5-day operation to bases all over Israel. A card denoting your shul or
congregant’s name will accompany your donated packages.

Price per Mishloach Manot is $18 and any shul donating $500 or above will receive a certificate of
recognition. To participate/contribute please use our web order form at www.yimanot.org.

We would also like to take this opportunity to invite you or a representative of your shul to
participate in the Mishloach Manot distribution on IDF bases - programming uniquely offered by
IYIM. Visits to IDF bases will take place the week of Purim. Please contact us at
[email protected] for details.

● Draw for a Soldier Campaign – Our soldiers love receiving warm letters/cards/drawings from Jewish
children and youth from all over the world. As such we have instituted this special campaign in
conjunction with our Mishloach Manot project. We collect these pictures and letters from schools and
shuls and place them into the Mishloachei Manot that are given out to the soldiers. If you are interested
in having the children of your community participate, kindly inform your youth or educational director to
contact our office for drop-off details and timetables as soon as possible ([email protected]).

● Person-to-Person Mishlochei Manot Anywhere in Israel – in conjunction with the American Friends
of Yisrael Hatzair, Mishlochei Manot can be sent to friends or family anywhere in Israel. All profits from
this project are directed to the educational, social welfare and empowerment projects of IYIM. For full
details or to place orders please refer to www.yimanot.org

We would greatly appreciate your sharing our campaigns with your congregants and hope to have the
opportunity to partner with you for Purim and in the future!

With wishes of a Chag Purim Sameach for you and your yeshiva,

Daniel M. Meyer

Executive Director
