Congregation Beth Torah’s Weiner Religious School Madrichim Program has been used as a model for other congregations around the country. This program is open to 9th -12th grade students.
One of the most important goals of our Madrichim Program is to expose teens to the challenges and responsibilities of Jewish education by placing them in the religious school, assisting our faculty to make the Jewish education of our younger students a meaningful and pleasurable experience. In addition to serving as a role model and helping our teachers, the Madrichim program gives you the chance to form relationships with other teens at Beth Torah who enjoy being here during religious school hours.
This group knows how to have fun while working! Because these students serve as role models, preference is given to teens currently enrolled in the Weiner Religious School or the Hyman Brand Hebrew Academy or those who have previously been confirmed. All madrichim receive payment in the form of scholarships to be used for Jewish youth group activities (NFTY, BBYO, USY, etc), Jewish camp or an Israel trip or for community service hours.
