The difference between just looking
and really seeing—that is the Central
Queens Y Early Childhood experience.
Nestled within the most culturally diverse
county in the United States, diversity is
highly valued as a part of our program.
Appearances can be mi sleading. We
want children to understand how
important it is not to make judgments
about people based only on what they
see. Our goal is to open their eyes to
a different way of looking at the world.
In keeping with our philosophy, we
embed special enrichment activities in
the program including swim instruction,
music with “Felt Songs,” Hebrew
language, gym instruction, arts & crafts,
an inter-generational reading program,
special holiday performances and dance.
Weekly Shabbat programming and
Jewish holidays are celebrated too!
Our Staff
Early Childhood staff are dynamic, caring,
experienced educators committed
to your child’s growth. We believe in
ongoing training for our teachers and
maintain the highest standards in Early
Childhood education, striving to provide
the best program in an exciting, creative
atmosphere.* Aquatics and physical
education activities are conducted in our
full-sized gym and indoor heated pool.
*All swimming and gym instructors are certified in
CPR, First Aid and their specific of areas of expertise.

One Family’s Struggle to Help

with his Sexuality
Sunday, May 19, 10 a.m to 12
Bagels & coffee included
$6 in advance, $9 at the door
In 2009, John Schwartz
got a call from his wife.
His thirteen year old son,
Joe, was on his way to
the hospital after a failed
suicide attempt. Joe
had finally mustered the
courage to come out as
gay to his classmates, who responded
with great discomfort. Hours later, he
tried to kill himself. Oddly Normal is a
personal story, written to help other
parents of gay kids — and maybe,
parents of any kid who is different,
who is mistreated by others, or who
just may not accept himself — to
know that they can find their own
way to help their child handle the pain
that comes from not fitting in. John
Schwartz is a national correspondent
for The New York Times.

old-new land, by combining elements from
other dance cultures with the music and
themes of modern Israel. Most dances
were created specifically as a way of
celebrating the spirit of the new country.
Join us as we celebrate Israel by learning
both traditional and modern folk dance!

ORDINARY
NAZIS AND THE
HOLOCAUST
Prof. Mary Fulbrook
Thurs., Mar. 28,
1:30 p.m.
Udo Klausa was an
ordinary Nazi functionary
who helped implement
the Nazi’s policies of extermination for
85,000 Jews on their way to slave labor or
the gas chambers. Despite inner conflicts,
Klausa considered himself throughout “a
decent man”. Klausa’s story is so typical
of countless local functionaries across
the Third Reich. Without the diligent
cooperation of these ordinary men, the
extermination of millions could never
have been realized. Fulbrook had known
the Klausa family all her life, but did not
know Udo’s story until a few years ago.
An award winning historian, Prof. Mary
Fulbrook teaches German history at
University College, London.

THE HANDS
OF WAR:
A TALE OF
ENDURANCE
AND HOPE
Marione Ingram
Mon., Apr. 8, 1:30 p.m.
Marione Ingram grew
up in Germany during World War II, the
daughter of a Jewish mother. In the
midst of deportations, she experienced
the firestorm bombings of Hamburg, the
deadliest aerial assault the world had ever
seen. Presumed dead in the firestorms,
she and her mother escaped the death
camps and survived in hiding, living with
constant fear and hunger. Immigrating to
the U.S. after the war, Ingram became
a civil rights activist, impelled by her
own experiences. During the 1960s she
worked on voter registration, opened a
Freedom School in Mississippi, which
was eventually torched by the Klu Klux
Klan. Today she is a writer and artist.
WOMEN IN
AFGHANISTAN,
WOMEN IN ISLAM
Naheed Braham
Mon., April 15, 1:30 p.m.
Naheed Braham, of NY
Women for Afghan Women,
will discuss the situation of women today
in Afghanistan and the role of women, historically, in Islam. Do the strictures of the
Taliban derive from Islam directly or from
the traditional culture of Afghanistan? She
will also discuss the work of Women for
Afghan Women in Afghanistan. Naheed’s
family left Afghanistan after her mother
was killed by a bomb in Kabul.
THE MEANING
OF LIFE
Prof. Raymond Belliotti
Mon., Apr. 22, 1:30 p.m.
Part of the human condition
is that the questions most important to us
- Why am I born to suffer and die? How
did it all begin and how will it end? - evade
answers and, instead, make us feel our
own limits. Yet, living a full life involves
struggling with the meaning of life. Belliotti
concludes that these questions are best
understood through two metaphors:
telescopes, and slinky toys. Distinguished
Prof. of Philosophy at SUNY Fredonia,
Belliotti is the recipient of the Chancellor’s
Award for Excellence in Teaching, and
is the author of 9 books, including The
Philosophy of Baseball.

THE JEWS OF
BUKHARA
Alanna Cooper
Mon., May 6, 1:30 p.m.
One of the most ancient
Mizrahi communities,
the Jews of Bukhara were intimately tied
to Central Asian culture. Author Alanna
Cooper tells the story of this community
in Bukhara and their struggle to adapt
yet preserve their own culture abroad.
Cooper’s new book makes clear the
tensions inherent in keeping Jews as one
people worldwide over the course of a
long and varied diaspora. Alanna Cooper
teaches at Boston University.
Jewish Life
and Culture
in Postwar
Germany
Prof. Roland Dollinger
Mon., May 13, 1:30 PM
Nearly seventy years after the Holocaust,
what is the nature of Jewish life in
Germany today? Professor Dollinger
will discuss the reemergence of Jewish
communities in the “country of the
perpetrators”, and anti-Semitism in
postwar Germany, looking at how
younger generations of Germans
understand their own past. Dr. Roland
Dollinger grew up in postwar Germany
and is Associate Professor of German at
Sarah Lawrence College.

Koch: The Man, The Mayor,
The Movie!
Film Screening & discussion with
Filmmaker Neil Barsky
Mon., Apr. 29, 12:30 p.m.
Former Mayor Ed Koch was the quintessential New Yorker. Still brash,
charismatic, and hilariously blunt when he died at 88, Koch ruled New
York from 1978 to 1989, a down-and-dirty decade of grit, graffiti, near-bankruptcy and
rampant crime. Often controversial, Koch served three terms as mayor, including an
infamous 1980 transit strike; the burgeoning AIDS epidemic; and landmark housing
renewal initiatives. Through candid interviews and rare footage, Koch chronicles the
personal toll of running the world’s greatest city in a time of upheaval. “Here was a guy
who really represented the rough and tumble of New York. And he was just haunted
and damned by one helluva personality.” Rev. Calvin Butts

13TH Annual Sholem
Aleichem Day!
RECOVERING THE
LOST WORLD OF
EAST EUROPEAN
JEWS
Jonathan Brent
Mon., May 20, 1:30 p.m.
YIVO was founded in Poland in 1925 by
a visionary group of Jewish intellectuals,
including Albert Einstein and Sigmund
Freud, who understood the unique and
largely unrecognized impact of Yiddish
culture on European civilization and were
deeply concerned that the culture of East
European Jewry was undergoing radical
change in a rapidly modernizing world.
Communal activists and intellectuals
worked tirelessly to collect the records
of Jewish communities years before the
Holocaust. Now in NY, YIVO has been able
to recover much of the vast archive stolen
by the Nazis. We’ll discuss this remarkable
history, as well as the continuing influence
of Yiddish culture on other cultures to the
present day. Jonathan Brent is Executive
Director of YIVO.
THE TERRITORY
Film Screening & Discussion with
Filmmaker Dmitriy Khavin
Mon., Jun. 17, 1:00 p.m.
The Territory is an intimate look into the lives
of Soviet immigrants to Israel, who have
made their new home in the West Bank
settlements, today comprising about one
fifth of the settlers in “the territories”. While
some residents move to the settlements
looking for cheaper housing, others are
motivated by Zionist ideology; and all are
influenced by their past experience of being
an oppressed minority in the Soviet Union.
Dmitriy Khavin began his film career at the
Odessa Film Studios in Ukraine and has
lived in the U.S. since 1992, where he works
as a filmmaker.

We’ll explore modern sculpture in more
depth, beginning with early 20TH century
movements such as primitivism, Cubism,
and Futurism, in the context of the events of
their time. Moving through the 20TH century,
we’ll look at assemblage, found art, and how
they differ from carved and forged sculpture.

opinion? Kelly Rae Aldridge teaches Art

ethical writings have for us today, in the 21ST
century? We’ll study the The Ethics of the
Fathers, with interpretations from Maimonides
to modern commentators. Rabbi Goldenberg
taught at Gettysburg & York Colleges.
