Students Grades 8 – 12

Eighth through twelfth graders attend Hebrew High and are eligible to become madrichim in our B’nei Mitzvah tutoring program and in Temple Beth El Religious School.

Religious School Madrichim are teaching assistants who help out in classrooms and with fun activities around Temple and Religious School and get incredible job experience to put on college applications and resumes.

REQUIREMENTS:

All Madrichim must fulfill the following requirements:

  • Commit to consistent attendance and communicate absences with their teacher.
  • 9th and 10th graders must enroll in and attend Hebrew High for at least one trimester during the year.
  • 11th and 12th graders may either enroll in Hebrew High or actively participate in a Jewish youth group.


Please contact Rabbi Beth Nichols, Director of Lifelong Jewish Learning for more information.

BEEMa is our Madrichim training program for eighth graders interested in serving as madrichim in the Religious School (teaching assistants) or in the B’nei Mitzvah program (tutors). BEEMa meets during regular Religious School hours from 9:00am-11:15am on Sunday mornings.

Participants in BEEMa meet weekly to explore and discuss topics such as leadership skills, child development, discussion leading, and program planning. Throughout the year, BEEMa participants have the chance to try out different grades and program areas, as well as work together on projects to benefit the whole Religious School. The year will culminate with BEEMa running a special morning of programming for the entire Religious School. A requirement of participation in BEEMa is that teens register and attend at least one trimester of Hebrew High.

Interested teens should complete the BEEMa application form. (Please note that this form is different than the form 9th-12th graders will complete to serve as madrichim.)

  • B’nei Mitzvah Madrichim work one-on-one with students who are training to become bar or bat mitzvah. Madrichim are scheduled on a monthly basis to assist during scheduled b’nei mitzvah tutoring sessions. These madrichim train students in the prayer and blessings of Shabbat services and some acquire the necessary skills to train students in Torah and Haftarah cantillation.

REQUIREMENTS:

All Madrichim must fulfill the following requirements:

  • 9th and 10th graders must enroll in and attend Hebrew High for at least one trimester during the year.
  • 11th and 12th graders may either enroll in Hebrew High or actively participate in a Jewish youth group.
