UPCOMING Parshat Lech-Lecha By: Rabbi Landsman

EVENTS Relocating one's self is a challenging task at any age. Doing so in the later stages of
life is doubly challenging. It is no wonder that the rabbis of the Mishnah characterized

Candle Lighting: our father Avraham’s move from Mesopotamia to the Land of Israel as being one of
5:45 the ten major tests of his turbulent life. Leaving all that is familiar and attempting to
integrate one's self in a new and strange environment is a very taxing experience.
Havdallah: 6:44 We are all aware of the immigrant experience of our forebears, whether in Western

Sun., October 25 countries or here in the State of Israel. The language is different, the streets are
5th-8th Parent unfamiliar, the customs and mores of everyday life are foreign to us and one has a
feeling of being a permanent alien.
Child Learning Rabbi Wein explains that Avraham himself expresses this feeling when, after decades
9-11:30 of successful living and earning the respect of the local population, he describes

Mon., October 26 himself as a mere stranger and a sojourner in their midst. He is not native born, he
New Family speaks the language with an accent and though his inner spiritual self tells him that

Israel is his God-given true home, he nevertheless feels the angst of being considered
Reception a stranger in a strange land.

WEd., October 28 Avraham becomes the prototype for Jewish existence throughout the millennia. Even

8th Grade Parents when returning home to the Land of Israel, it has taken generations for Jews to fully
High School Night realize that they are finally home and are no longer strangers or aliens in someone
else's country.
Sun., Nov. 1 If Avraham had been born in the Land of Israel, perhaps all of Jewish and human

Set Clocks Back history would have been different. The Torah describes Avraham as a wandering
Aramean and so he remains throughout Jewish tradition and Torah commentary.
One Hour

5th-8th Parent Hashem, in telling Avraham to leave his home, does not specify the exact location
where he is now allowed to reside. Hashem promises him that He will yet show him

9-11:30 the new place. Avraham instinctively travels to the Land of Israel and it is there and
only then that Hashem confirms that this is to be not only his place of residence but the
Fri. Nov. 6 eternal home of the Jewish people.

JHS Boys There is an inner drive of holiness within the Jewish soul that brings them to the Land

Shabbaton! of Israel. Whereas it was persecution and the absence of other options that brought
hundreds of thousands of Jews to settle in the Land of Israel in the twentieth century,

inner drive of connection to our homeland to our past and future at one and the same

Preschool Open The rabbis taught us that Avraham’s personal greatness could only be realized in the
Land of Israel even with all its trials and tribulations. The truth be said, the

Sixth Grade Students Visit CHofetz Chaim!
On Friday, the sixth grade boys walked with Rabbi Finestone and Rabbi
Rosenfelt to Yeshivas Chofetz Chaim to have the incredible opportunity to
hear Divrei Torah from the Rosh Yeshiva, Rabbi Akiva Grunblatt shlita. To
properly prepare the boys to beging learning Gemara, the Rosh Yeshiva
spoke to them about the importance of studying Torah and its long term
effects. After the rosh yeshiva spoke, every sixth grade boy had the
opportunity to introduce themselves and ask the Rosh Yeshiva a
question. What an incredible experience our sixth grade boys had!

Kindness Camp

The fifth grade "Kindness Campaign" is in full swing! During the aseret y'mei teshuva,
the fifth-graders learned about how to be a "bucket filler." A bucket filler is someone
who does or says something to make someone else feel good. We are working hard to
bring happiness to others by what we say or do. We are also trying to acknowledge
the nice things that others do for us, by filling out cards for those who have filled our
buckets. For each card, we put a "warm fuzzy" in our classroom bucket. Students also
had the ability to participate in a hands-on activity to demonstrate the power of our
words. They observed that our words can be used to create something beautiful, but
when used to harm others they leave behind marks that do not fade. The fifth-graders
are working hard to create beautiful things with their words and actions. We can't wait
to see what happens when our classroom buckets are filled!
