UPCOMING Parshat Vayeishev By: Rabbi Landsman

EVENTS In Parshat Veyeishev, we learn that Yaakov sent Yosef to check on his brothers. The pasuk

says that along the way, “A man discovered him (Yosef) and he was wandering in the field and

Candle Lighting: 4:10 the man asked him, ‘what do you seek’ (37:15).” At first glance, this pasuk seems to add nothing
Havdallah: 5:14 to the narrative. The details of Yosef’s search for his brothers are all left to our imagination
and are seemingly inconsequential, except for this one unremarkable event. The fact that it is

Sunday, December 2 singled out, signals to Chazal that even if the man appeared as a person, he was no less than the
Chumash Presentations malach Gavriel on a divine mission. Indeed, the sale of Yosef would have never occurred if not
for this one meeting. Perhaps Yosef would have continued to wander and return home reporting
2-205-9:00am the unsuccessful search for his brothers. Thus, this moment teaches us, as the Ramban
2-206-11:00am explains, that Hashem was guiding all the events leading up to the sale of Yosef for years to

Erev Chanukah come. Throughout the many times that Yosef would feel desperate and forsaken by family and
by Hashem, he would be able to look back at this moment and be reassured that Hashem’s

Wed., December 5 watchful eye was directing his life’s course. It was this moment of clarity when Hashem
allowed Himself to be revealed that illuminated moments of ambiguity and aloneness, that would
Preschool Chanukah have otherwise left room for doubt of Hashem’s providence.
Presentations
This life perspective quite possibly may have been part of the upbringing of Yosef. His

father’s fight with the malach, according to Ramban, occurred in order to shape the way that

Monday, December 10 Yaacov would view his upcoming meeting with Eisav, much as it should shape our understanding of
Last Day of Chanukah the entire parsha as well. If not for the struggle with the malach one could have easily thought
that Eisav came with good intentions. After all, when they meet, Eisav appears to be a
NO SESSIONS benevolent brother having long buried his difficulties with a paranoid younger brother. In the

midst of all of this uncertainty comes the fight with the malach, the moment of clarity that

Wed. December 12 teaches us the true intentions of Eisav and his four hundred men. Once again it is the moment
Parent Teacher of Hashem’s revelation that interprets the series of events that are to follow.
Rabbi Yaacov Neuberger, Rosh Yeshiva, Yeshiva University, Rabbi of Congregation Beth
Conferences Abraham, Bergenfield NJ, connects this pattern of interplay between the ness niglah (revealed
3:45 pm Dismissal K-8 miracle) and the ness nistar (hidden miracle) showing that it is at the core of the celebration of

Chanukah. Here too the war is the classic ness nistar, as one could have forever questioned

December 14-15 Hashem’s involvement in our military success. It should not surprise us that the Maccabees were
revered for their battlefield skills. “Rabim beyad Meatim” could have been attributed to the
JHS Girls Shabbaton skills of the dedicated Maccabees. However the seemingly unnecessary miracle of the oil was

Sunday, December 16 the ness niglah to show that all that transpired was miraculous even if slightly hidden.
What is the purpose of a ness nistar if one receives the ness nigla in a separate context?
Chumash Presentations What are we to learn from the coupling of revelations rather than the more efficient single
2-207– 9:00am ness niglah necessary to address our needs?
It seems to be that the ness niglah reassures and directs us to carefully analyze all of life’s
2-204– 11:00am events and actively discover Hashem within them. As a result, we proceed to pierce the veil of

Monday, December 17 nature and coincidence, earning the singular privilege of participating in the revealing of Hashem
Parent Teacher and making His presence all the more palpable for all.

Shabbat Shalom and Chanukah Sameach!

Sunday Learning with Rabbi Dovid Orlofsky

This past Sunday, fifth through eighth grade students and parents had an amazing
learning experience with Rabbi Dovid Orlofsky. Rabbi Orlofsky inspired us using
gematria and amazing stories about the significance of Eisav coming to greet Yaakov
with 400 men. We learned about the importance of tefila and the power of our words.
The shiur was incredibly moving and it was a privilege having Rabbi Orlofsky speak at
YCQ.

Kindergarten Trip to the Jewish Museum

The kindergarten went to the Jewish Children’s Museum where
they went to the Bereishit floor and experienced the days of
creation. They also got to shop in the kosher supermarket and got
to be contestants in a Jewish game show. Students participated
in an oil making workshop and made their own Chanukah candle. It
was a great hands-on experience to prepare for Chanukah! The
students learned so much and had such a great time.

Preschool Thanksgiving Program

In honor of Thanksgiving, the kindergarten classes were taught how to read pictographs and
enjoyed a Native American story. All of the classes also learned with their Morahs how
Native Americans communicated and worked to make up a drum language. Every student
even made a beat for their names. At the Thanksgiving program, Morah Sharon dressed up
as a pilgrim girl and reenacted the Thanksgiving story for the Nursery and Kindergarten
students . Morah Sharon also taught the children a Native American song. Following the
program, the nursery enjoyed a corn party and the kindergarten had powwows in their
classrooms. It was an incredible Thanksgiving learning experience for the preschool!

Second Grade Thanksgiving Parent Child Workshop

YCQ celebrated Thanksgiving one day early at our annual 2nd Grade Thanksgiving
Workshop. Each second grader invited one guest to join them in the MPR for an
afternoon of learning, crafts, and treats. Together with their guest, the students
wrote a piece about why their family is special. It was a unique opportunity for parents to
see a writing workshop in action. Each class performed a special Thanksgiving poem and
visited a photo booth with their guest. The room was decorated with Thanksgiving
balloons and those in attendance enjoyed the learning and performances. Thank you to
Mrs. Benson for organizing the Thanksgiving craft and thank you to the second grade
teachers for this awesome event!

Fourth Grade Powwow

“Hakame!” (Welcome!), was the greeting offered to the fourth grade students as they arrived at YCQ’s
annual Powwow last week. Members of the Shinnecock Indian Nation, which is located on the East End of
Long Island, had arrived to model their regalia, perform traditional dances, and teach the boys and girls
about their customs and traditions. The students were awed by the beauty of the regalia that was worn by
three Shinnecock dancers – one garbed in a “jingle dress,” one in a traditional fringed deerskin blouse and
skirt, and one wearing a beautifully-colored, satin “ribbon dress,” designed to resemble a butterfly in flight.
The students were enthralled by the dancers’ performances, and enjoyed participating in circle dances
themselves. The afternoon concluded with a feast of traditional Native American food – corn muffins, apple
sauce, cranberry sauce, popcorn, and apple juice. It was an informative and delicious celebration!

Debate Team
YCQ's Debate team is off to a wonderful start. They participated in a debate at HAFTR
arguing over the idea of compulsory voting for all American citizens over the age of 18.
The students of HAFTR and Yavneh were very able competitors and a challenging debate
ensued. We are very proud of receiving the First Place School award. Aaron Sisser won the
First Place Individual Speaker Award, Eitan Canter won the Second Place Individual

Speaker award. Together
they won for the First
Place Team.
Congratulations to team
members: Meira Beylus,
Rivka Sullivan, Chai

and Natalie Khaimov.
Special thanks to Mrs.
Ben-Habib for coaching
the team to victory and

chaperoning the event.
