UPCOMING Parshat Korach By: Rabbi Landsman

EVENTS The Mishneh [Avot 5:17] says that any argument that is for the sake of Heaven is
destined to have lasting, positive results, and any argument that is not for the sake
Candle Lighting: 8:10 of Heaven (in which people only serve their self interests) will never have positive
Havdalah: 9:18

Sunday, June 17 results. As the classic example of an argument for the sake of Heaven, the Mishneh

Father’s Day sites the disciples of Hillel and Shammai. The paradigm of an argument not for the

Thursday, June 18 sake of Heaven is that of "Korach and his community." Many have commented that
8th Grade Graduation in order to use appropriate, parallel language in the Mishneh, the example should
Practice 1:30 PM be "the argument of Korach and Moshe" (the two adversaries), not "of Korach and

8th Grade Senior Dinner his community."

Tuesday, June 19 Rabbi Frand quotes HaRav Shimon Schwab (1908-1995) who offers the
Nursery following insight. What does the Mishneh mean when it says that the argument of

“Moving Up”Ceremony Korach and his community is an argument that is not for the sake of Heaven? Rav

Kindergarten Graduation Schwab says that when there is an argument for the sake of Heaven, both parties

Last Day of Nursery realize that there is another side to the argument. Beit Shammai may say 'Guilty'
and Kindergarten Classes and Beit Hillel may say 'Innocent', but they are both interested in arriving at the
8th Grade Graduation truth. In order to get to the truth, I must hear the other side. I agree that there is
another side to the argument. I may happen to think that the other side is wrong,

Wednesday, June 20 but I admit that there is another side.
An argument that is not for the sake of Heaven is that of Korach and his
Trip Day Grades 1-6

Last Day of followers. These individuals all believed that there was only their side of the

7th Grade Classes argument. There was nothing to talk about. They were not even willing to listen to

Thursday, June 21 the other side. They were not interested in finding the truth. They were only
Last Day of Classes interested in promoting their side. It was not the argument of Korach and Moshe. To
this community, Moshe did not even exist. He had no 'side' in the dispute.
Grades 1-6
1:30 PM Dismissal We must be tolerant enough and understanding enough to realize that there
can perhaps be two sides to an issue. We must at least be willing to listen to and

willing to consider the other side. We do not need to be willing to agree to the other

YCQ Family News side, but we must at least admit that the other side exists. Sometimes people
become so intolerant and so closed-minded that they are not even willing to admit
Mazel Tov to Mrs. this.
Fried and Morah Hadas
The Talmud tells us, "Just as the faces of people do not exactly resemble one
on the marriage of another, so too their opinions do not exactly resemble one another" [Brochot 58a].
Ronee Fried (2010) to
Just as no two people look exactly alike, so too, no two people think exactly alike.
Jonathan Goldman Rav Shlomo Eiger says that the meaning of the Talmud's statement is that

just as it should not bother me when someone does not look like me, so too, the fact

that someone does not think like me should not bother me.

A person is considered among the disciples of Hillel and Shammai when he is

tolerant and is not bothered by someone disagreeing with him. However, when a

person can not tolerate disagreement with his own opinion and feels that 'there is no

other side', he is unfortunately considered a disciple of Korach and his congregation.

Shabbat Shalom!

Eighth Grade Washington Trip

On Wednesday, June 6, the eighth grade boarded buses and headed for the nation’s
capital! Their first stop was the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. The
students toured the Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam Memorial, and Korean Memorial. The boys
went to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, while the girls went to the Smithsonian
Museum of Natural History. After eating dinner at the hotel, students had a wonderful
night of bowling. The following day, the trip continued with a class photo in front of the
Capital to capture this special moment with their YCQ family. Up next was an enjoyable
day at Six Flags Amusement Park! This memorable trip ended with a pizza dinner
together before arriving back at YCQ. Thank you to Rabbi Landsman, Mrs. Golubtchik,
Morah Beer, Rabbi Nat, Rabbi Kramer, Mr. Barasch, Ms. Baker, Ms. Kavian, Mrs. Orlanski,
Rabbi Howitt for chaperoning and Morah Hadas for organizing this memorable trip.


This past Sunday, the YCQ soccer team took on the HALB Lions in Har Torah for the championship
game. This game was set up for a spectacular finish and it did not disappoint. YCQ took an early
lead after a give and go scored by Tani Leitner. The second half took a while to get some scoring
thanks to YCQ goalkeeper Sam Korman, who ultimately won MVP. Later in the game YCQ took a 3-1
lead after a spectacular pass by Tani Leitner finished with a great shot by Rephael Gemal. Gemal
scored again with only 3 minutes left giving
YCQ a 4-3 lead. This is the second year in a
row YCQ has won the soccer championship!
Honorable mention to Michael Levy and the
rest of the YCQ defense for locking down
the HALB offense. Thank you to Coach Avi
Bohorodzaner who is 2 for 2 in
championships and is truly an amazing coach.
Thank you to all who came to support.

Go Wildcats!!!

Fifth Grade Siyum

Mishnayot Leilui Nishmat Rabbi Rosen zt”l. They ventured to Carlos and Gabby’s for
an amazing lunch. Rabbi Elan Siegelman, Rabbi of Congregation KTT, gave an
inspiring Dvar Torah to our students in honor of their learning of Mishnayot. We
also heard Divrai Torah from Alyssa Adelstein, Sarah Owadeyah, Eli Opoczynski,
and Ariel Shabtai. It was a great achievement by the fifth grade!

Torah Bee!
This past week, our elementary school students culminated their year-long study
of Yediot Klaliot with the annual Torah Bee. Questions were asked to each class, as
the classes competed in an exceptionally close contest. An exciting time was had
by all. Congratulations to all of the students who studied all year. A special Yasher
Koach to all the teachers for their assistance with the program! Special thanks to
Rabbi Ribalt for coordinating this beautiful event.

Literacy/Writing Festival

On June 11 and June 12 students in grades one through five participated in
our annual Writing Festival. Every student had a chance to share their
wonderful writing from throughout the year with family and friends. We are
so proud of every child for all of their incredible accomplishments in literacy
this year. Special thanks to their amazing teachers for putting together such
an enjoyable and outstanding program!

Sixth Grade Girls Chagigat Bnot Mitzvah

celebrated becoming Bnot Mitzvah. The girls wrote beautiful essays about their namesakes,
raised money for the community in Revava, performed for their guests and ate a delicious dinner.
Each girl received a woman’s siddur as well as a framed copy of their namesake essay. Many
thanks to Morah Hadas, Morah Leemor, Morah Stemp, and Morah Engelson for all of their hard

Band Performance

The orchestra and band performed their annual spring concert. The
performance included Hatikvah, Shalom Aleichem and other songs
played on violin, drums and trumpet. The after school music
program offers students a choice of instruments and weekly group
lessons to enforce the skills needed to work towards their goals. The
students enjoyed performing what they have learned for their
families and friends. Thank you to the music teachers and Mazel
Tov to all the performers!
