תהילים פרק ל
א מִזְמוֹר: שִׁיר-חֲנֻכַּת הַבַּיִת לְדָוִד.
ב אֲרוֹמִמְךָ יְהוָה, כִּי דִלִּיתָנִי; וְלֹא-שִׂמַּחְתָּ אֹיְבַי לִי.
ג יְהוָה אֱלֹהָי-- שִׁוַּעְתִּי אֵלֶיךָ, וַתִּרְפָּאֵנִי.
ד יְהוָה--הֶעֱלִיתָ מִן-שְׁאוֹל נַפְשִׁי; חִיִּיתַנִי, מיורדי- (מִיָּרְדִי-) בוֹר.
ה זַמְּרוּ לַיהוָה חֲסִידָיו; וְהוֹדוּ, לְזֵכֶר קָדְשׁוֹ.
ו כִּי רֶגַע, בְּאַפּוֹ-- חַיִּים בִּרְצוֹנוֹ:
בָּעֶרֶב, יָלִין בֶּכִי; וְלַבֹּקֶר רִנָּה.
ז וַאֲנִי, אָמַרְתִּי בְשַׁלְוִי-- בַּל-אֶמּוֹט לְעוֹלָם.
ח יְהוָה-- בִּרְצוֹנְךָ, הֶעֱמַדְתָּה לְהַרְרִי-עֹז:
הִסְתַּרְתָּ פָנֶיךָ; הָיִיתִי נִבְהָל.
ט אֵלֶיךָ יְהוָה אֶקְרָא; וְאֶל-אֲדֹנָי, אֶתְחַנָּן.
י מַה-בֶּצַע בְּדָמִי, בְּרִדְתִּי אֶל-שָׁחַת:
הֲיוֹדְךָ עָפָר; הֲיַגִּיד אֲמִתֶּךָ.
יא שְׁמַע-יְהוָה וְחָנֵּנִי; יְהוָה, הֱיֵה-עֹזֵר לִי.
יב הָפַכְתָּ מִסְפְּדִי, לְמָחוֹל לִי: פִּתַּחְתָּ שַׂקִּי; וַתְּאַזְּרֵנִי שִׂמְחָה.
יג לְמַעַן, יְזַמֶּרְךָ כָבוֹד-- וְלֹא יִדֹּם: יְהוָה אֱלֹהַי, לְעוֹלָם אוֹדֶךּ

Shalom from Israel

Yaldanu Preschool Alumni... Support Rimon1114

Yaldaynu Announcements - October 2nd, 2015 

Alumni Update

This week we are introducing a new feature in our newsletter. Over the past three decades Yaldaynu has been privileged to see amazing children enter and exit it's halls. It is incredible to see how our students grow and develop throughout their years at Yaldaynu, and it is truly remarkable to hear about them as they embark on their futures. 

Yoshi and his dad making hamentaschen at Yaldaynu

Yoshi Gadasi attended Yaldaynu in 1997-1999. Both his mother Brooke (who served as a former Yaldaynu Board President) and his father Tsuri (of Ben Hur Moving) continue to support our school. Yoshi moved to Israel after he graduated from SAR High School and today, is serving in the Israeli Army in the elite Givati unit. Yoshi is still in contact with friends he met at Yaldaynu.

Yaldaynu is overjoyed about the accomplishments of our alumni. We are so proud of Yoshi as he defends our homeland!

Refuaa Shelema to the Injured in Israel

Please read Psalms and pray for Refuaa Shelema to Israel's recent injured.

Psalms Chapter 20 תְּהִלִּים

א  לַמְנַצֵּחַ, מִזְמוֹר לְדָוִד.1 For the Leader. A Psalm of David.
ב  יַעַנְךָ יְהוָה, בְּיוֹם צָרָה;    יְשַׂגֶּבְךָ, שֵׁם אֱלֹהֵי יַעֲקֹב.2 The LORD answer thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob set thee up on high;
ג  יִשְׁלַח-עֶזְרְךָ מִקֹּדֶשׁ;    וּמִצִּיּוֹן, יִסְעָדֶךָּ.3 Send forth thy help from the sanctuary, and support thee out of Zion;
ד  יִזְכֹּר כָּל-מִנְחֹתֶךָ;    וְעוֹלָתְךָ יְדַשְּׁנֶה סֶלָה.4 Receive the memorial of all thy meal-offerings, and accept the fat of thy burnt-sacrifice; Selah
ה  יִתֶּן-לְךָ כִלְבָבֶךָ;    וְכָל-עֲצָתְךָ יְמַלֵּא.5 Grant thee according to thine own heart, and fulfil all thy counsel.
ו  נְרַנְּנָה, בִּישׁוּעָתֶךָ--    וּבְשֵׁם-אֱלֹהֵינוּ נִדְגֹּל;
יְמַלֵּא יְהוָה,    כָּל-מִשְׁאֲלוֹתֶיךָ.
6 We will shout for joy in thy victory, and in the name of our God we will set up our standards;
the LORD fulfil all thy petitions.
ז  עַתָּה יָדַעְתִּי--    כִּי הוֹשִׁיעַ יְהוָה, מְשִׁיחוֹ:
יַעֲנֵהוּ, מִשְּׁמֵי קָדְשׁוֹ--    בִּגְבֻרוֹת, יֵשַׁע יְמִינוֹ.
7 Now know I that the LORD saveth His anointed;
He will answer him from His holy heaven with the mighty acts of His saving right hand.
ח  אֵלֶּה בָרֶכֶב,    וְאֵלֶּה בַסּוּסִים;
וַאֲנַחְנוּ,    בְּשֵׁם-יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ נַזְכִּיר.
8 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses;
but we will make mention of the name of the LORD our God.
ט  הֵמָּה, כָּרְעוּ וְנָפָלוּ;    וַאֲנַחְנוּ קַּמְנוּ, וַנִּתְעוֹדָד.9 They are bowed down and fallen; but we are risen, and stand upright.
י  יְהוָה הוֹשִׁיעָה:    הַמֶּלֶךְ, יַעֲנֵנוּ בְיוֹם-קָרְאֵנוּ.10 Save, LORD; let the King answer us in the day that we call.

Unity Rally In Solidarity With Israel Tomorrow

Unity Rally In Solidarity With Israel 
Thursday, October 15, 12:30pm

At The Israeli Mission To The UN:
Second Ave. Bet. 42nd & 43rd Streets.

Our brothers and sisters in Israel are facing incessant terror attacks. The murder of a rabbi and his wife in front of their 4 children.  Shooting and stabbing on a public bus. Ramming cars into people waiting at a bus stop. From out of nowhere, more and more random stabbings.
We cannot remain silent. We must declare loudly and clearly: Israel, you are not alone - we stand with you!
Said Rav Avi: "This is a time for all Jews - from right to left, for all Americans - Republican or Democrat, for all people of moral conscience to cry out and declare, 'enough.'"

Tefila for Shomrei Yisrael

מִי שֶׁבֵּרַךְ אֲבוֹתֵינוּ
אַבְרָהָם יִצְחָק וְיַעֲקֹב
הוּא יְבָרֵךְ אֶת חַיָּלֵי צְבָא הַהֲגַנָּה לְיִשְׂרָאֵל, שוטרי משטרת ישראל וכֹּחוֹת הַבִּטָּחוֹן
הָעוֹמְדִים עַל מִשְׁמַר אַרְצֵנוּ
מִגְּבוּל הַלְּבָנוֹן וְעַד מִדְבַּר מִצְרַיִם
וּמִן הַיָּם הַגָּדוֹל עַד לְבוֹא הָעֲרָבָה
בַּיַּבָּשָׁה בָּאֲוִיר וּבַיָּם.
יִתֵּן יְיָ אֶת אוֹיְבֵינוּ הַקָּמִים עָלֵינוּ
נִגָּפִים לִפְנֵיהֶם!
הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא יִשְׁמֹר וְיַצִּיל אֶת המופקדים על שמירת חיינו
מִכׇּל צָרָה וְצוּקָה
וּמִכׇּל נֶגַע וּמַחֲלָה
וְיִשְׁלַח בְּרָכָה וְהַצְלָחָה בְּכָל מַעֲשֵׂה יְדֵיהֶם.
יַדְבֵּר שׂוֹנְאֵינוּ תַּחְתֵּיהֶם
וִיעַטְּרֵם בְּכֶתֶר יְשׁוּעָה וּבְעֲטֶרֶת נִצָּחוֹן
וִיקֻיַּם בָּהֶם הַכָּתוּב:
"כִּי יְיָ אֱ-לֹהֵיכֶם הַהֹלֵךְ עִמָּכֶם,
לְהִלָּחֵם לָכֶם עִם אֹיְבֵיכֶם
לְהוֹשִׁיעַ אֶתְכֶם".
