4th GRADE WRITING Reflections of the Year
We realize how much we grew this year. We accomplished a lot scholastically. We grew in Math. We started addition and
now we are learning division and subtraction of fractions and decimals. Do you know what else we learned? For examples
we learned spelling and had many Spelling bees. We also learned how to read better. We learned about America and its
people and how America grew from coast to coast. What I will remember is what we learned about neatness, responsibility
and Derech Eretz. We learned about appreciating family. Everything we learned in Mrs. Lerner’s class is like another
diamond in a crown. There are lessons for life!
Looking back at fourth grade, we realize how much we grew this year. We learned a lot scholastically. In Math, we learned
place value and value of numbers, fractions, division and decimals. In Spelling we had Spelling bees which we had to spell
words under pressure. Above all we learned Derech Eretz, Middos Tovos and appreciation of family. I kinow my family
loved the family tree we made. We also sent letters to the President of the United States about Mr. Rubashkin’s jail
sentence for 27 years. I would like to thank Yeshiva Torah Temimah for all their hard work in making this the best year I
ever had. My Hashem bless Torah Temimah to be able to teach kids Torah and Mitzvos and General Studies too!
Looking back at 4th grade, we realize how much we grew this year, either scholastically or in Middos. Scholastically we
accomplished in Math “hard” multiplication and division to fractions, decimals, area and perimeter, etc. in Spelling, we
learned 30 lessons and had many bees. This is only a little bit. There is a lot more. In History we learned from when
Columbus discovered America in 1492 to regions and geography about dams to volcanoes. In Vocabulary we covered 112
words. We learned about famous people such as Albert Einstein, Martin L. K. J. and Yosef Mendelovitch. We also learned the
current events such as Trump freeing Mr.Rubashkin to him recognizing Yerushalayim as Erets Yisrael’s capital. We also
learned how to write an essay and that practice makes perfect. To top it all of, we learned about Derech Eretz, neatness and
responsibility. Three major things in life. We learned how to appreciate family and not to take anything for granted. We
learned how to take a “no” calmly since it’s for our own good. Finally, we learned how to pass the real test of life!

Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky
BY: Yitzchok Chaimovitz
Rabbi Shmaryahu Yosef Chaim Kanievsky
is a Rabbi and a Posek that is living in Bnei
Brak, Israel. He is considered a leading
Posek and a Gadol Hador. He was born
January 8, 1928 in Pinsk, USSR to Rabbi
Yakov Yisroel Kanievsky, the Steipler Rav
and Rebbitzen Miriam Karlitz, sister of the
Many years ago, a young man who was an
orphan as a small child came to Rav Chaim
and asked for him to guide him in life.
Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky inted him to come
for Shabbos meals each week. He said, to
him “from now on I will be your father
and you will be my son”. One Friday night,
the young man fell asleep with all of his
clothes on. Rav Chaim took his shoes off
gently. In the morning, Rav Chaim
apologized for disturbing his sleep and
explained that the Gemara says that one
should not sleep with his shoes on.
We can also learn from this story how Rav
Chaim cared about every Jew and treated
him like his own ch9ild. SO we learn from
this story how one should treat and care
for every Jew.
Rabbi Akiva Eiger
BY: Shimmy Eisenstadt
Rabbi Akiva Eiger was a Gadol Hador of Klal Yisroel in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. He was born in the city of
Eisenstadt, which is now in the country of Austria. He lived from 1761-1837. The age he died was 76 years old. He learned in the
Mattersdorf Yeshiva, and later at the Breslau Yeshiva where he was taught by his uncle Reb Wolf Eiger.
Rabbi Akiva Eiger was a מוהלand wrote many responses in the Halachic and Talmudic topics. He believed that למודי קודשwas
sufficient and opposed the party which favored secular schools. He was strongly against the Haskala movement, which was starting
out in his times.
Rabbi Akiva Eger’s greatness of heart and selfless devotion to his community can be seen from the following event. In the year
1831 a terrible cholera epidemic swept central and eastern Europe. Posen was among the cities stricken with this fatal sickness,
causing entire sections of the city to be quarantined and therefore forbidden to be entered. Rabbi AKiva Eger disregarded the
danger and went into the stricken sections of the city to care for the sick.
Rabbi Akiva Eger was a humble person. He was appointed to be chief Rabbi of Posen. At first he declined the position, due to his
humility, and also not wanting his Torah knowledge to be the source of his income. However, after much persuasion from his
father in-law he agreed to take it on. However, never accepting the official title of “Chief Rabbi of Posen”.
Among the many stories told of his humility, there I s a story told I n connection to his new appointment of Rabbi of Posen. The
whole community turned out to welcome the two great scholars. Rabbi AKiva Eger traveled by coach, accompanied by his son in
law, the CHasam Sofer. The CHasam Sofer thought that all the honors were meant for his illustrious father in law taking up his new
post. So he descended from the coach and walked beside it to join the congregation paying tribute to the new Rabbi. Sometime
later, he looked to the other side of the coach and to his great astonishment saw that his father in law was also walking alongside
the coach on the other side for he was certain that the honor was not meant for him but for his great son in law. All these stories
show that Rabbi Akiva Eger was a great man and someone who influenced generations through his greatness in Torah and good
It happens to be that my grandmother is a Schreiber and therefore I, too am an einikel of Rabbi Akiva Eiger.
