Lifelong Learning


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.

For more information, please contact Rabbi Chase Foster.

The Hurricane Harvey Flood Fund

Hurricane Harvey left Houston and surrounding areas in a shambles, but the great people of Houston are banding together to help and heal. Your help is welcome and needed. You may send Gift Cards (Kroger, Target, HEB, Lowe’s, or Visa/Mastercard, etc.) to Congregation Beth Israel. They will be immediately distributed to area neighbors to assist in replacing essential items and children’s school supplies.

You may also Donate directly to Congregation Beth Israel by clicking here. All funds will go directly to aid those who need immediate help. These funds will NOT be held to be allocated later. On behalf of our clergy (Rabbi David Lyon, Rabbi Adrienne Scott, Rabbi Joshua Herman, Rabbi Chase Foster, and Cantor Trompeter), David Scott, Executive Director, and Bruce Levy, Temple President, we are very grateful for your kindness, generosity, and help.

Hurt has no shame and no label; we just need to heal one another.

Rabbi David Lyon
