Mazal Tov to Eliya
of sefer Vayikra which focuses on korbanot is that the offering of a korban is an expression of humility,
Alcoby and Eitan Danesh
on their Bar Mitzvah! since many korbanot are brought as a kapara for a cheit. The teshuva process which culminates with the

offering of a korban is predicated on the ability to humble oneself before Hashem, in contrast to the

arrogant individual who cannot admit he made a mistake. The korbanot that are brought as an expression

of thanks also require a sense of humility. How so? One who views his success as a result of his own

accomplishments will not acknowledge that it is Hashem who really has bestowed upon him these gifts; he

will feel no need to offer thanks. A korban of thanks to Hashem, by contrast, is the ultimate expression of

the realization that we are humbled by the goodness He performs for us.

Bilam, who was the antithesis of humility, also offered korbanot. Throughout Parshat Balak he

draws attention to these korbanot and prides himself on bringing them. He uses them as a way to demand

that Hashem grant him nevu'ah. Rather than internalizing the lesson of humility signified by korbanot, he

uses them to advance his arrogance as he attempts to further his personal status and wealth.

As we begin Sefer Vayikra, the very first word teaches us about the proper spirit that must

accompany a korban. We look to Moshe as a role model of humility to guide us in how to use korbanot as

a vehicle for teshuva and as an acknowledgement of our complete dependence on Hashem for the gifts

He bestows upon us. Shabbat Shalom and Chodesh Tov!

Mission To Albany By: Eli Canter and JJ Varnai

This past Tuesday twenty-five eighth grade students spent the day at Albany along with
many other schools, advocating for more government funding for non-public schools. They
listened to a number of speakers from the assembly and the state senate speak about the
different ways they plan on solving the issue. Students also had the opportunity to speak
with Senator Addobbo, and ask questions on the topic, as well as advocating for non-public
school funding. Students also spent time exploring the capitol building. They learned about
the history of our state in the museum, and had the privilege of sitting in on a meeting of
state officials. The students had a great time learning and making their voices heard. Thank
you to Mr. Barasch, Ms. Baker and Mrs. Verstandig for organizing and chaperoning the
trip.

Matza Bakery

The nursery and kindergarten classes experienced first hand the process of baking matza
from separating the chaff from the wheat and grinding it into flour, to mixing the dough and
baking it all within 18 minutes. The matza that they baked was then eaten in school but
everyone was given a mini shmurah matza that they will take home and can be used for
Pesach.

Sunday Morning Learning Program

This past Sunday morning a shiur was given by Rabbi Pearl on the topic of “The mitzvah of Hashavat Aveidah”,
returning lost property. A story about how this mitzvah saved a girl from an Indian cult started off the class and
the worksheets analyzed how this law applied to the case of sefarim rescued from the Holocaust. Both the
parents and children came away with a deeper understanding of this important mitzvah. Thank you to Rabbi
Pearl for the insightful shiur!

Science Fair!

On Tuesday, March 13, the 6th grade held their annual science fair. Under the guidance of Mr. Manny Rayburn, 6th grade
science teacher, students conducted experiments and built models to show off their science expertise. Students in grades 3-
5 visited the science fair during the day and enjoyed a scavenger hunt to find different projects. Parents joined us in the
evening for a beautiful awards ceremony. Many thanks to our judges Mr. Dan Benson, Mr. Yoni Goldstein, and Ms.
Miriam Kavian. The following students received Honorable Mention: Jacob Natanov, Haim Abayev, Jessica Barayev,
Gabby Shamalov, Liorah Solemeini, Leah Kalantarov, Eva Bokhour, Leah Miriam Borenstein, Maya Betesh, and Dassie
