Rabbi David Ellenson, PhD & Chancellor Arnold Eisen, PhD – March 15, 2019
Open to 8th-12th graders, our Madrichim program is our teen leadership program. Madrich translates as “guide,” and we encourage the teens who serve as Madrichim (the plural of Madrich) to view themselves as guiding our students on their Jewish journeys. Being a part of #TeamMadrichim enables our teens to learn and grow as they nurture the next generations of MBJLC students. Because of the effort and care of our Madrichim, MBJLC students become curious about their faith and find a place where they feel comfortable being Jewish.
Our Madrichim learn how to build relationships, to care for students in need, to teach, and more. Depending on the class and teacher, they assist with assignments, teach classroom lessons, lead activities, read stories, engage students who need help, and whatever else the teacher may need. The Madrich or Madrichah is compensated with either an hourly wage or community service hours.
