2 SCHOOL-WIDE SCOOP The Kindness of our Children As we all were shivering outside Monday morning, it took one ques on to students to have them start taking the clothes off their backs and handing them to other students who were colder. The simple request was that if a student had a coat or extra layer on, would they be willing to share with someone who was wearing short sleeves? In an instant zip ups, sweaters, hats, gloves, and any other extra apparel was being handed out to other students. This was done with no care to grade level, gender, or previous friendship. It truly was heartwarming to watch so many students put the needs of others first. What a wonderful thing to witness.

9 By: Rabbi Aaron Leibtag Congregation KJBS Food for Thought )ב( ו י כ ל א- להים ב י ום ה ש ביעי מ ל אכ ת ו א ש ר ע ש ה ו י ש ב ת ב י ום ה ש ביעי מכ ל מ ל אכ ת ו א ש ר ע ש ה: The role of Shabbat is focused around resting. Hashem rested when He did not continue the creation of the world, and we rest every Shabbat. Why is resting so crucial to the creation of the world? Why was the final day of creation, the climax, a day in which nothing happened? How should the resting of Shabbat enhance my own Shabbat and that of my family? Maybe God did create something R Jonathan Sacks, Radical Then, Radical Now, p 130 (adapted from Morasha Syllabus) The Sabbath was a totally new institution in human history and at first no else could understand it What was it that they could not understand? Every religion had its holy days. But none before had ever had a day whose holiness was expressed in the prohibition of work. Greek and Roman writers ridiculed the Jews because of this. They were, said Seneca, Plutarch, and Tacitus, a lazy people who took a day off because they did not labor. Neither Greeks nor Romans could understand the idea that rest is an achievement, that the Sabbath is Judaism s stillness at the heart of a turning world, and that it was this that God had created on the seventh day. Shabbat as a spiritual anchor an ancient tradition When Moshe first comes down to the Jewish people in Egypt the people believed in him. Yet, when he returns a second time it is said ולא שמעו אל משה מקוצר רוח ומעבודה קשה - they couldn t listen to him anymore. What happened in between these two events? R Yaakov Kamenetzky zt l explains that Moshe had negotiated with Pharoh to give the Jewish people one day off. That day was Shabbat, and they used it to anchor them through the entire week, spending Shabbat reading certain chapters of Tehillim. Once Pharoh increased their workload they were forced to give up their Shabbat, and along with that went their day of hope and salvation. Without their Shabbat to renew their faith and dreams, they could no longer believe and listen to Moshe. Emet L Yaakov, Parshat Beshalach Greeting the King Shabbat is about a special kind of resting, a resting that is done to recognize the extraordinary guest that has come to our homes and to our tables. In fact, one of the reasons that our world stops on Shabbat is because our world shuts down to welcome Hashem as our Shabbat guest. Imagine, says R Shimshon Pincus zt l, that a great king has pronounced that he will be visiting a certain town. The town is abuzz with the news they have received the enormous and indescribable honor of hosting the king. As the king nears, the town completely shuts down. Stores and businesses are closed, and everyone leaves their fields and places of work to catch a glimpse of the king passing through the town. Life shuts down for a few moments when the king comes. R Pincus explains that on Shabbat G-d comes to our homes and comes to our places of Tefillah. It s why we turn around during Lecha Dodi, to welcome Hashem. It is also the reason we have a Melava Malka after Shabbat, to escort G-d out of our homes. It is a major reason behind the don ts of Shabbos. Our world shuts down. Our activity stops. Hashem is coming.
10 We re on to Something From CNN.com Dr. Matthew Sleeth is a former emergency room physician. He's also the author of "24/6: A Prescription for a Healthier, Happier Life." CNN: Why do you think taking one day off a week is so important? Sleeth: We go 24/7 now, and I think it's having health consequences. I think more and more, there's a consensus that it leads to depression and anxiety. Sleeth: A "stop day" is a day you really cease from your labors. This really comes in Western cultures from the Ten Commandments. The fourth commandment tells us to remember the Sabbath. The word "Sabbath" simply means "to cease" -- to cease from your labors. Now, the definition of labor has changed over the centuries and the millennia. For some people, resting from their labors might mean resting from the sedentary job that they have, putting on tennis shoes and going for a run. For those who work physically, that would mean coming to rest. In the book "24/6," I don't try to define what rest is for a person, but I ask you to figure out what work is for you, and don't do it one day out of the week. The ספורנו comments that the word וישבת does not mean to rest. He explains (Shemot 23:2) that the ויהיה עסקך כולו לה' אלוק -ך work; you will stop doing your שתשבות ממלכתך is, purpose of Shabbos and your preoccupation should be entirely for Hashem. Our goal is to take one day off to rest. And dedicate some of our newfound time to other spiritual pursuits. Zemirot: Food for our Souls After one particular lecture that Elie Weisel had given, a woman approached him and stated that her father was a bunkmate of Elie Weisel in the concentration camps. She had merely just wanted to say hello but after introducing herself as the daughter of this particular man, Elie Weisel turned to her and said your father saved my life. He explained that it was one bitter wintry day and they were all dragged out before sunrise, exhausted, emaciated and dragged to the woods, forced to chop wood. That particular day it was freezing cold, with biting winds. The beatings that they received that day were more brutal, severe and sadistic than normal. By the time they had marched back to their barracks, they had lost all hope of living. As they came back, there was a certain Russian POW in their barracks. He called out to us all that he had acquired cyanide pills, enough to go around. Everyone lined up, myself included, to put an end to the misery. The only person not to move was your father. He was a Vizhnitzer chassid and began singing ani mamin to a beautiful vizhnitzer niggun. Waiting on the line to receive the cyanide pill, Elie Weisel left the line and joined her father in the other corner of the barracks. Slowly, one by one, each person left the line and came over to the corner where her father was singing. After listening to the niggun, how could one contemplate anything else other than devikus b hashem?! In Judaism, music raises the spoken word to a level which touches on prophecy and gives us a taste of something which is beyond and transforms it into something untouchable. We need to sing because it touches our souls and expresses what can t be expressed; song is food for our Neshama. Singing allows our Judaism to exist beyond just the strict letter of the law and transforms it into a passionate rendezvous with G-d. (R Nathan Lopez Carodzo, Thoughts to Ponder )
