Our Madrichim assist in the Religious School. They will work with an assigned teacher to plan, lead and reflect on one lesson per semester. Madrichim are required to complete the in-training program which will focus on leadership development, Jewish values, professional development, classroom management, and safety. Madrichim may also attend teacher trainings throughout the year.
