UPCOMING Parshat Vayetze By: Rabbi Landsman

EVENTS At the beginning of the Parsha, Hashem blesses Yaakov with the words "I am

Candle Lighting: 4:25 Hashem, G-d of Avraham your father and G-d of Yitzchak; the ground upon which

Havdallah: 5:24 you are lying, to you will I give it and to your descendants. Your offspring shall be as
the dust of the earth, and you shall spread out powerfully westward, eastward, north-
Sun., Nov.10 ward, and southward..." [Bereshit 28:13-14].
JHS Parent-Child
Learning Program Rabbi Frand explains that the simple understanding of the blessing "Your off-
spring shall be as the dust of the earth" is that Yaakov's descendants should be so

9-11 AM plentiful that their numbers will be comparable to the dust of the earth. The Medrash,

Mon., Nov. 11 however, sees in these words more than just a blessing of being plentiful and bounti-

This is different than the blessing elsewhere that we should be "like the sand
of the sea" (k'chol haYam) [Breishit 32:13]. The phrase "k'afar ha'Aretz" literally

Conferences means like the dust of the ground. The dust of the ground is that which we walk on. Is

There are so many more picturesque similes to use (as we find elsewhere).

Kindergarten Open House A Huge Success

This past Sunday YCQ had an extremely successful Kindergarten Open house. It was attended by
over sixty new families that came from the surrounding neighborhoods in Queens as well as the Five
Towns and Great Neck. While the adults enjoyed a viewing of last years’ Dinner slideshow presenta-
tion and heard from YCQ students, Talia Lisker and Zack Goldberg, Sharon Korn, Rabbi Landsman
and YCQ parent, Rebbetzin Nechama Teitelman, and YCQ PA Co-President Mrs. Jodi Tanzman,
the children participated in music, gym, and visits to the Kindergarten classrooms where they made
craft projects. Numerous people helped make this day such a success. Thank you to Morah Rivky
Huff, Morah Selma Gottfreid, Morah Raina Popowitz, Morah Marion Noble, Morah Janet Koenigs-
berg, Morah Rhona Lipetz, Morah Suri Friedman, Morah Sarah Kasherim, Morah Maxine Lipshitz,

Junior High School Introduces new Initiative

In the past couple of weeks, the Junior High embarked on a new and exciting program addressing Acceptance
And Tolerance. It began with a really powerful program, MIX IT UP, the brainchild of Mrs. Meisel (7th grade language
arts). Mix It Up is a national initiative seeking to introduce appreciation for diversity and address bullying in schools.
YCQ already has one of the most diverse Jewish populations. As part of the plan, the lunchroom was ‘mixed’ around;
cliques and groups were divided up. The students sat with peers they would usually not interact with, gaining an appreci-
ation for those that may be different than themselves– discussing about their different backgrounds, cultures, interests and
looks.

Following the thought provoking program, the Language Arts teachers began a curriculum addressing these top-
ics within their classrooms. We focused on how our differences make us richer. Social media, a force in our children’s
lives, was a highlight of this discussion, especially how it could be used either for positive growth or for great harm.

In the next couple of weeks, we will continue exploring the effects of intolerance and bullying, as well as the
power we have to mitigate bullying. Empowering our students to recognize when others are being bullied, including on
social media, is a primary focus. On social media, comments and posts, often innocent, can reach viral effect – before
anyone even notices how hurtful they can be.

In our digital world, much of the focus of this initiative will include creating multimedia. The students will de-
velop video commercials, comic strips and flyers in their computer classes. Their goal will be to envision their own Tol-
erance and Acceptance initiatives, something that would have the potential to have a powerful impact in the school. We
look forward to seeing what they create! All of the multimedia will be posted on a special page, linked from the YCQ
website. We hope you will check it out!

Election Day

This past Tuesday, the JHS students were able to experience the voting process hands-on as
they sat in their private booths to vote for their YCQ student government. Mazel tov to
Presidents Netanel Kamel and Corrine Azizian, Vice Presidents Coby Kohanim and Adi
Nissanian, Seventh grade representative, Yehuda Levy, Talia Wein, sixth grade representative
Noah Warshaw and Dalya Koller. Thank you to all the participants for a job well done!

Nursery and Kindergarten Rain and Fall Program

This past week the nursery and kindergarten enjoyed a music and
movement “fall” program with Morah Toby. The children enjoyed
moving like the wind, and the leaves falling off the trees. They
played out in the rain and took shelter under rainbow umbrellas.
They used scarves, balls, and “clouds” to enhance the experience.
Everyone had a great time!

Dear Parents:

With Chanukah fast approaching, we are excitedly planning our annual

YCQ Parents Association CHANUKAH BOUTIQUE.

The boutique takes place in the Junior High School Multi Purpose Room and this year is
scheduled for Tuesday, November 19 and Wednesday, November 20 (16th & 17th of Kislev).

The Chanukah Boutique is both a fun and convenient way for the children tochoose gifts
for the chag. It is also a chessed opportunity for the children, as all the funds raised go
towards our school.

The boutique offers something for everyone. There will be gifts available for each mem-
ber of the family, friends and teachers. The cost of the items are very low so that every child
may purchase something (aprox. 50 cents and up).

CLASSES FROM NURSERY THROUGH 8TH GRADE WILL BE SCHEDULED FOR VISITS TO THE
CHANUKAH BOUTIQUE.

ALL PARENTS ARE WELCOME TO COME TO BROWSE AND SHOP EACH DAY AND AT OUR SPE-
CIAL PREVIEW NITE -- MONDAY, NOVEMBER 18TH FROM 7:30 - 9:30PM.

IF YOU CANNOT MAKE IT, PLEASE REMEMBER TO SEND MONEY ALONG WITH YOUR CHILD
ON THE DAY OF HIS/HER SCHEDULED VISIT.

FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE, ALL NURSERY THROUGH GRADE 3 STUDENTS WILL BE RECEIVING
ENVELOPES TO PLACE THEIR MONEY/CHANGE IN.

For the boutique to be a success, we need your assistance! We are looking for some
great volunteers to set up and help us at the boutique. If you can give of your time in some
capacity, please contact one of the people listed below.

We look forward to hearing from you soon.
