UPCOMING Parshat Vayishlach By: Rabbi Landsman
EVENTS

Candle Lighting: 4:19 As Yaakov anticipates a dangerous reunion with Eisav, he calls out to Hashem for

Havdallah: 5:18 assistance. He beseeches Hashem to, "Rescue me from my brother, from Eisav". This prayer
appears to be redundant since "my brother" is Eisav. Rabbi Tzvi Sobolofsky quotes the Beit
Sun., Nov. 17 HaLeivi saying that Yaakov was actually asking Hashem for assistance in facing two differ-

Wed., Nov.20 earlier when he was forced to flee for his life. Upon hearing that Eisav was coming to meet

Bat Mitzvah him with an army of four hundred men, Yaakov was presented with a very real threat of

Workshop physical harm.

6th Grade Girls There was an entirely different danger that also frightened Yaakov. After so many

7PM years, perhaps Eisav had softened his position towards Yaakov. Could it be that Eisav was
ready to approach Yaakov as a brother? Such a reunion posed an entirely different type of
Motzai Shabbat threat to the existence of Yaakov and his family. To become too close to a brother such as
Nov. 23 Eisav and expose his family to the lifestyle and values of an Eisav could spiritually destroy
the foundation of the Jewish people. It was this dual danger that prompted Yaakov to re-

These two threats that faced Yaakov would constantly resurface throughout Jewish

Chanukah and Purim, the two festivals instituted by Chazal to commemorate the

The Life of a Frog!
The third graders in YCQ got a delightful surprise visit recently! Tadpoles! Ms. Laffer’s
Class 3-210, Mrs. Cohen’s Class 3-209 and Mrs. Chubak’s classes 3-211 and 3-212 are
working with YCQ’S Science teacher Mr. Bensen to help students understand the life cycle
of a frog. These third graders have become scientists, carefully observing their tadpoles and
jotting down their observations and development. Both teachers and students are super ex-
cited to see the changes right before their very own eyes!

Holocaust Exhibit Comes to YCQ

This past Tuesday, November 12, the junior high students had the privilege of viewing
“When Humanity Fails”, a mobile Holocaust museum exhibit, sponsored by the Afikim
Foundation. Students learned about survivors and their liberators, as well as other ways
America was involved in WWII. Special thanks to Rebbetzin Karen Hochberg for arrang-
ing the exhibit and getting the grant money to fund it.

Ms. Laffer’s third grade class
learned about the history of Veter-
an’s Day. To honor the men and
women who served in our armed
services, Class 3-210 created acros-
tic Veteran’s Day poems! The class
also shared stories about family
members who were or are veterans
and Ms. Laffer even brought in pic-
tures of her grandfathers who served
in World War Two. Her paternal
grandfather served in the U.S. Army
and her maternal grandfather Alex
served in the U.S. Navy. Although
we celebrate Veteran’s Day every
year on November 11th, we should
always remember to honor our
veterans every day!

Safety Kids

On November 12th and 19th we ran a timely and pertinent program on personal safety and concerns. In an effort to educate
and keep the information relevant from the last few years of running the Safety Kids program, we invited Dr. Shloimie Zim-
merman and Dr. Naomi Press to address our students. The students reviewed information learned before and addressed a
broader scope of the issues facing our children in today’s world. In addition, they welcomed questions and concerns from
the children themselves. The students were receptive and mature in hearing about these very important safety tools and were
given information that will guide them in the future should they be faced with any situation that would require these pro-
safety skills. I am sure you, the YCQ family, will join us in this mission of safety and continue the conversation at home
with your children.

Avigail Winkor sent in this poem to “The Holocaust Essay Contest” sponsored by

EMUNAH of America, in conjunction with our Holocaust program in Israel. She won
1st prize ‐ $500. Below is a copy of Avigail Winokur’s poem:




Fallen Crystals


Fallen crystals, A night of crystals,
Drifting slowly, Broken glass,

Capturing the shadows of the night. Waiting. Waiting to be swept and
grasped.

Burning parchment,
Stolen treasures, For all we know,

Orange turning black into white. In ten years time,
The crystals will be far,

Salty water, Like their owner’s cries.
Mixed with blood,

Sucking in the remnants of fright. My fallen people,
Do not fret,
A homeless people, Your crystals have become

Once again, Your redeeming prize.
Learning to turn darkness into light.


Fallen crystals,

Made of glass,
Stars filling the black of the night.




My fallen angles,
Don’t despair,

For no one shall forget
That you were there.


Among the scrolls,

The burning homes,
Broken hearts,
And shattered souls.


Fallen crystals,

Don’t go so far,
For I must remember,

There you are.

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.
