YCQ Elementary School (ES) Lag BaOmer Color War (Grades 1-5) was a vibrant success. Four teams in each grade (Red, Blue, Yellow, and White) competed in different categories. Every student had a chance to participate. It was a day packed with relay races, Kahoot trivia games, cheers, hakaras ha’tov letters, dances, games, and a special barbecue lunch to celebrate Lag BaOmer. Each student, class, and team demonstrated their very best effort. Congratulations on the win, YCQ ES Yellow Team!

YCQ Junior High School (JHS) Lag BaOmer Color War (Grades 6-8) was a roaring triumph. JHS students divided into the Blue Team and Red Team. They excelled at banner, stomp, dance, song, games, and sports. There was ruach and achdus. YCQ thanks Mrs. Aliza Willig for arranging all the teams and activities, and to the Generals and Captains for leading their teams. Congratulations YCQ JHS Blue Team!

The Jewish Community Relations Council of New York (JCRC) Celebrate Israel Parade is the world’s largest expression of solidarity with the Jewish state. After a two-year hiatus, on Sunday, March 22, this year’s parade theme was “Together Again – Kulanu B’Yachad.” Together with more than 40,000 marchers, dozens of fabulous floats, marching bands, and Jewish and Israeli musical performers, YCQ showed outstanding attendance and participation when students, family, and faculty marched down Fifth Avenue, cheering and showing support for Israel. YCQ is grateful to the many community members who joined behind our banner and cheered on the sidelines.
