Lubavitch Yeshiva of Monsey Registration Opens

We are happy to announce the opening of Lubavitch Yeshiva of Monsey (LYM)!

The Mesivta is currently accepting applications for bochurim going into Shiur Aleph (9th grade) and Shiur Beis (10th grade) for the upcoming school year.

The Yeshiva is committed to bringing out the best in every bochur in a warm and chassidishe environment and helping each student reach his potential.

Our goal is to teach every bochur how to learn independently and give him the tools to dissect a piece of Gemara and Chassidus.

Aside from shiurim in Chassidus and Gemarah, the curriculum also includes shiurim in Halacha, Yemei Chabad and more, with the aim of instilling a greater source of knowledge and a more stimulating day.

At LYM we believe that a bochur is driven to learn when he feels and sees his accomplishments and by giving him positive reinforcement. This will be accomplished through our unique program known as Mivtza Asei Tov, a program that focuses on the positive.

For more information or to request an application, please call the Menahel Ruchni, Rabbi Shmuel Rothstein, at 443-525-4212.

Parsha Perspective

By Rabbi Yisroel Shusterman, Dean, Cheder Chabad of Monsey

This week's Torah reading is called Bamidbar, "in the desert" and is always read before holiday of Shavuot. The connection is obvious—after all, Shavuot commemorates the giving of the Torah, an event that transpired in the Sinai Desert.

In the desert there are no towns or neighborhoods--you'd be neither on the right nor on the wrong side of the tracks. There aren't any department stores or grocery stores-- which is why, say our sages, G-d gave us the Torah in the desert.

Had He given it to us on Wall Street, He would have had to decide whom to appoint to the board and who should retain a controlling interest. Had He given it to us in the Holy Land, He'd have had to decide if He wants it in religious Jerusalem, mystical Sefad or hi-tech Tel Aviv. Or perhaps He'd have preferred a Marxist kibbutz or even a neo-Zionist settlement?

G-d wanted no shareholders in his Torah, no corporate structure, no social or political context. In fact, no context whatsoever. Just us and the Torah.

Wouldn't it have been great to stay in the desert?

But as soon as G-d was sure that we'd gotten the message--that we understood that the Torah is not the product of any particular age, environment or cultural milieu, and that it belongs, absolutely and unequivocally, to each and every one of us--he sent us to the cities and the towns of His world, to its farms and marketplaces, to its universities and office complexes. He told us that now that He's done His part, it's up to us to make His Torah relevant in all these places and in all these contexts.

G‑d gave us the Torah there to teach us that our job is to transform a world which is a spiritual desert, lacking morals, ethics and humility, into a world of Torah and peace.

And more personally speaking: At times we find ourselves in a moral Sinai, when our life seems empty and dull, uninspiring, depressing and barren. There, specifically there, the Torah must enter and push us out of the rut.

Torah is not only for the synagogue. It is for the desert as well.

May the literal title of our parshah of Bamidbar and the many lessons it conveys serve as a fitting prelude for the beautiful festival of Shavuot. May we receive the Torah with joy and earnestness so that this important festival will be both meaningful and memorable.

Have a meaningful and uplifting Shabbos and a joyous Shavuos!

Parsha Perspective

By Rabbi Yisroel Shusterman, Dean, Cheder Chabad of Monsey

This week’s  Torah reading of Behar-Bechukosai (Vayikra (Leviticus) 25:1-27:34) includes a section known as the “Tochacha” (Rebuke). It is an ominous warning of the troubles and difficulties that will befall Israel should they stray from the G‑dly path. The mystics teach that even those frightening punishments are, in reality, hidden blessings that cannot be perceived at face value.

Thee is an  interesting analogy on this theme from the well-known author Rabbi Dr A.J. Twerski. A mother takes her toddler to the doctor. The doctor prepares to give the child a vaccination by injection. But the child isn't stupid. He sees trouble coming, so he doesn't make it easy for the doctor. In fact, Mom must hold the child down while the doctor administers the injection, and throughout, the kid is screaming and shouting. Not a minute later the child is suddenly burying his face in Mom's shoulder, desperately seeking solace in his mother's embrace. And the question is “Why?” Wasn’t Mom an accomplice to the crime when she held him down while the doctor attacked him? Why is this child suddenly finding comfort on  Mom's shoulder? She is the enemy!

The answer is that every child knows intuitively that his mother loves him and wants only the best for her child. Even if there seems to be a momentary lapse, he knows it will be short-lived. After the fleeting test of faith, the innate and essential bond of love between mother and child is quickly re-established.

And so it is with our Father in Heaven. Sometimes we may feel angry from what we see happening. Why does He allow all these terrible misfortunes to befall us? And yet, we know that he really and truly does love us. After all is said and done, we are His children. Does the mother in the clinic hate her child? Is she punishing him? G‑d forbid. Does the doctor want to hurt the child? Of course not ! So, just as a child is comforted by his mother, so is the Jew comforted by the knowledge and conviction that G‑d loves us.

To us it may remain a mystery but to G‑d there is a cosmic, eternal plan. The child doesn't understand or appreciate an injection and neither can we fathom the divine "vaccinations" we must put up with from time to time. Nevertheless, we accept in good faith that somehow there is a reason - and even a good reason - behind all our problems. It may not be revealed to us in this world, only in the next. So we do need a fair amount of patience. Personally, I'm prepared to handle living in suspense.

In our moments of misery and days of distress, let us remember that our loving Father in Heaven is surely no less caring than the mother in the doctor's office.

Have a meaningful and uplifting Shabbos!

Lag B'Omer at Cheder Chabad Girls

What a fun filled ל"ג בעומר day we had at Cheder Chabad Preschool and Elementary Grades.

Color War was in the air for every student at Cheder Chabad Girls.  The spirit and אחדות was felt by all.  The teams were – Blue team – “Reaching In” and White Team – “Reaching out.”  After Davening the girls went outside for competition races.  Even the weather was beautiful which made the fun and excitement so much more.

Each team performed a skit, sang their theme song, learned פרקי אבות  and were tested on it and had some more outdoor fun.  The older grades played מחנים while the younger grades played games with their Limudei Chol Teachers.  The fun continued.  Each girl got a cotton candy and a red, White and Blue ices.  It was amazing to see the girl’s involvement in whatever way they were able to.   What a happy way to celebrate the special day of ל"ג בעומר .

What a fun filled exciting carnival we had at Cheder Chabad Preschool.  Each class got a turn to jump in the huge moon walk.  While half of the class was enjoying the moon walk the other half made a special arts and crafts with food.  It looked like a bonfire made out of pretzel sticks for the wood and corn candy for the fire.  They also played some games.  At the end of the carnival each child got a cotton candy.  The special day of ל"ג בעומר  was enjoyed by all.

Nursery had פרייליך day in honor of the רשב“יס יארצייט. We went outside and played with the colorful tent and ran under to pretend we are like the רשב“י hiding in a cave from the Romans. We chased after arrows from the bow that Morah used and we danced to real music!

The UPK class made a beautiful arts and crafts with a bonfire. They collected twigs from outside which they used for the bonfire and pasted dancing people all around.  They also danced to the lively  music that was playing in their classroom.

The Pre-1a  classes made a beautiful  parade.  Each girl and boy made magnificent posters for the parade.  They marched around in the building as well as outside singing and dancing.  It really added to the שמחה of the special day of ל"ג בעומר.  They also made a big bonfire out of logs and crepe paper.  They sat around the “fire” in a circle and sang אמר רבי עקיבא... .  It was so nice.

Thank you to all the teachers and staff for adding all your hard work to the success of this special day.

A Parsha Thought

Compiled by Rabbi Yisroel Shusterman, Dean, Cheder Chabad of Monsey

The Parsha  this week, Emor, presents an interesting Mitzva. “A bull, sheep or goat that is born to you shall remain under its mother for seven days. From the eighth day onward it is acceptable as an offering to G-d" (Vayikra (Leviticus) 22:27). Why does the Torah refer to the newborn animals by their mature names instead of the usual calf, lamb and kid? The Torah wants to teach us  that an animal is born with its entire potential already actualized. It cannot develop into something greater then it already is at this “age”

Its qualities will never erode, but its inherent faults will always remain.

Not so for human beings. Man is always capable of more. Rabbi Akiva, for example, was forty years old before he learned to read Hebrew, yet he became the greatest Torah scholar in history. Every human being, background and affiliation not withstanding, can transform him or herself and thus make great strides forward.

A calf is born and lives for one week. Having completed one full cycle of life, it reaches its greatest milestone: it is ready to be brought as an offering before G-d. There is no sense in waiting any longer for it won't develop into more than it already is. Mankind, on the other hand, lives for one week and only then begins the journey. Circumcision, performed on the eighth day, enables us to begin a process that only intensifies as we grow and mature.

(Though girls are not circumcised they don't miss out on this process. Jewish thought views women as endowed at birth with the inherent quality that men receive only at circumcision. In this sense women begin their process of spiritual growth one week earlier, from the time of birth.)

It is never too late to turn over a new leaf. Life is filled with milestones. Birth, circumcision, bar/bat mitzvah, graduation, marriage, parenting, grand parenting and so on. If physical maturity marches inexorably forward, it follows that spiritual maturity can, and should, at the very least, keep pace.

(excerpts from - Rabbi   Lazer Gurkow)
