Jewish Children’s Museum
On Wednesday, January 13, 2016 the nursery went on a trip to the
Jewish Children’s Museum. They visited many exciting exhibits
including the floor that’s all about Sefer Bereshit. They enjoyed
crawling through a giant challah and climbing on a huge Kiddush cup.
They even got to shop in a play Kosher Market and got to bring home
a beautiful project. What a fun trip!
The second meet of the Torah Bowl season took place on Monday, January 11, as the students were
asked questions on the Parshiot of Shelach and Korach. They competed against HANC, HALB,
SHAGN, and HAFTR and nearly all games were extremely close. The boys won two of the four games
and were lead by Itamar Besalel who turned in an incredible effort. It was a lot of fun, and they look
forward to the rest of the season. Thank you Rabbi Rosenfelt and Ms. Rosenblum for preparing all the
students so well.
1-201 Siddur Play
This past Sunday, Morah Fendel’s kittah received their very first Siddur and put on a
beautiful performance! We are so proud of them! They worked very hard, singing their
songs, practicing their parts and rehearsing on stage. The play was executed to
perfection and the songs sounded amazing!! They then watched a slide show
highlighting the children learning! Then, each student received an engraved siddur
with his or her name on it! Everyone then enjoyed cake and treats celebrating
receiving their siddurim! Mazel tov to all first graders! Special thanks to Morah
Fendel, Morah Tali and Morah Molly for all their hard work!
Class 1-200 Receives Their Siddurim
Mazel tov to 1-200 who received their very first Siddur and put on a
beautiful performance! The children sang and preformed their parts
beautifully. Every child did a spectacular job! Although the Yeladim had a
great time performing, even more exciting to them is davening each day
from their brand new Siddur! Many thanks to Morah Elana, Morah Elisheva,
and Morah Tali!

volunteers. Many are also receiving scholarships as well
as tutoring, to make their stay in yeshivos possible.
A number of former JEP children have come to YCQ
