Madrichim

In Hebrew, the word Madrich means "teacher" or "leader" and is often used to refer to counselors at summer camps. At Congregation Beth El's Viterbi Torah School, we have created a special leadership training program called Madrichim to both assist our Torah School teachers and to give our teens valuable Jewish leadership experience.

The program begins with a summer training session and continues with each Madrich being paired up with a teacher that they assist on Sunday mornings during school hours. They help with art projects, music, teaching lessons, and put on special school-wide programs. We come to lean on our Madrichim quite a bit!

Our Beth El Madrichim program allows teens in grades 9-12 to gain leadership experience and skills working with children one-on-one, in a classroom setting, and with special school projects as an aid in the Viterbi Torah School. Teens make a commitment for the year and are matched up with a particular class to assist the teacher in class projects and day-to-day activities.

If you are interested in being a part of the Madrichim program, please email Jessie Birnbaum for more information.
