Sixth Grade Girls Chagigat Bnot Mitzvah

The sixth grade girls had a wonderful experience this past Monday evening as they celebrated be-
coming Bnot Mitzvah. The girls wrote beautiful essays about their namesakes, and raised money for
a girls orphanage in Israel. The girls performed for their guests and ate a delicious dinner. Each girl
received a kreiat shema al hamita along with a pillow that had a grade picture on it and a framed copy
of their namessake essay. Many thanks to Morah Michelle Farbman for all her hard work in making
this evening so special and to all the sixth grade Morot for their effort and assistance.

Seventh Grade Philadelphia Trip

On Monday, June 2nd, the seventh grade students had a wonderful time visiting Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania. They went on the duck tour boat which took them through Philly by land and by
sea. They had the opportunity to see the historic Liberty Bell, a historic shul that is one of the
oldest in Pennsylvania and the National Constitutional Center. The students had an education-
al and exciting day visiting many notable landmarks. Thank you so much to all of the chaper-
ones for taking time our of their busy schedules to join the seventh graders on this most mem-
orable trip.

Celebrate Israel Parade

On Sunday June 1st, YCQ proudly marched up Fifth Avenue along with thousands of other students
from the tri-state area to Celebrate Israel! Our theme this year was “Yerushalayim Shel Zahav” as
depicted on our beautiful shirts. We learned all about the gold crown given to Rabbi Akiva’s wife!
Special thanks to Mrs. Liron Friedman, Mrs. Linda Benson, Mrs. Remona Lubek, Rabbi Hamel, Mrs.
Teichman, Mrs. Golubtchik, Mrs. Tzerel Goldschmidt, Mr. Russel Perlmutter, Cruz, Oren, and Kevin!
May we be zoche to march next year in the parade leading up to the third beit hamikdash in
Yerushalayim Habenuya!!

Eighth Grade Trip to Washington!

On Wednesday May 28th the eighth grade boarded buses and headed for the nation’s capital!
They first stop was the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum including, the permanent
exhibit, Hall of Witnesses, and Daniel’s Story. The students toured the Jefferson Memorial, Lin-
coln Memorial, Vietnam Memorial, and Korean Memorial. The boys than went to The Smith-
sonian Air and Space Museum, while the girls went to the Smithsonian National Museum of
Natural History. The students went to the gift shop, and went to take a picture outside the
White House. Followed by eating dinner at Max’s Restaurant. The following morning the stu-
dents ate breakfast at the JCC of Baltimore, Eden Café, and then went on a guided Tour
through the capital. Then we went to Six Flags Amusement Park, followed by EJ’s Pizza dinner

YU Student Awarded Research Fellowship in Bioethics 
YU Senior Mark Weingarten selected for prestigious research fellowship, credits quality of undergraduate education for the 
By Arutz Sheva Staff 

First Publish: 6/9/2014, 9:59 PM 
Mark Weingarten 
Matt Yaniv/courtesy of Yeshiva University 
Mark Weingarten of Holliswood, a senior at Yeshiva 
University, was selected to conduct research as part of the 
Emily Murray Fellowship at the Hastings Center for 
Bioethics in Hastings, New York this summer.  
The three‐week program began at the end of May and is 
open to undergraduates who are preparing a senior thesis 
in bioethics. Weingarten’s research will focus on two 
projects that integrate Torah, biomedical science and law.  
One will explore the ethical considerations that arise from 
the publication of irreproducible or seemingly fraudulent 
scientific data, in addition to developing systems 
approaches to enhance research integrity.  
The other will examine ethical issues with respect to animals, particularly regarding the controversy over the humane killing of 
animals for food, and the interplay between religion, history, law and ethics in determining policy.  
“I hope to use this research to investigate the broader questions that underlie many elements of the biomedical field in 
general, and the way in which legal and religious traditions engage advancements in science and technology,” Weingarten, 
who is majoring in history at Yeshiva College and also pursuing semicha (rabbinic ordination) at YU‐affiliated Rabbi Isaac 
Elchanan Theological Seminary, stated. “I hope that this study will further my ability to synthesize the knowledge and 
sensitivities that I have gleaned from my rabbinical studies and biological research to address personal and societal ethical 
scientific dilemmas.” He credited his rabbis and professors at YU for their guidance in his research and other intellectual 
pursuits, and for helping him discover new insights and opportunities related to his studies. 
This project represents the next stage of his research with Dr. Yakov Peter, assistant professor of biology, who has served as 
his mentor since he began his journey at YU three years ago.  
“Dr. Peter's mentorship, his caring and dedication to his students, is extremely inspiring and remarkable,” said Weingarten. 
“Under his tutelage, I have been granted exposure to the world of research, and afforded opportunities that have been 
unparalleled learning experiences. Dr. Peter was instrumental as a sparring partner to develop unique ideas for the thesis, and 
in his brilliant and unique approaches to always push the bar higher.”  
“Mark is a friendly, hardworking and highly motivated student,” said Dr. Peter, who helped Weingarten secure a research 
opportunity at a Harvard laboratory last summer to study pulmonary cell biology. “He is determined, quick, resourceful and 
open to new ideas. He has already co‐authored two manuscripts in peer‐reviewed journals, which is a very rare 
accomplishment for an undergraduate student. With the tools he acquired at YU, Mark will now be able to follow his dreams 
in the field of bioethics.”  
Weingarten also acknowledged the mentorship of two Roshei Yeshiva whose wisdom and guidance served as constant 
sources of inspiration during his research: Rabbi Moshe Tendler, Rabbi Isaac and Bella Tendler Chair in Jewish Medical Ethics 
and professor of biology, who first introduced him to the field of bioethics, and Rabbi J. David Bleich, Herbert and Florence 
Tenzer Professor of Jewish Law and Ethics at YU’s Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law and a postdoctoral fellow at the 
Hastings Center, “whose prowess in Torah and bioethics is astonishing,” Weingarten said.  
“I was first captivated by the field of bioethics when taking Rabbi Tendler's course,” Weingarten recalled. “There, I witnessed 
his mastery of the material, and the manner in which he harnessed a variety of viewpoints to present the multifaceted 
elements of each dilemma.” 
In addition, Weingarten has been studying with Rabbi Shalom Carmy, assistant professor of Jewish Philosophy and Bible to “to 
gain the background in philosophy necessary to achieve an enhanced perception of the issues at hand,” he said. He also plans 
to connect with Rosh Yeshiva Rabbi Ozer Glickman later this summer, “to study some of the pertinent legal and Talmudic 
During the fellowship, student scholars research and write a portion of their project, deliver a presentation of their work to 
Hastings Center scholars and are able to discuss their project individually with the Center’s research scholars. “It is an 
incredible blessing and humbling opportunity to now interact with and learn from some of the leaders in the field whose 
articles we discussed and debated in class,” said Weingarten.
