Madrichim Program (8th-12th Grades)

This year the learning that takes place for our 8th through 12th graders is going to be focused primarily on their interests.  While we will guide this process, we are focusing our work on project-based learning with the goal of our Madrichim working in groups of three to present topics to our classes throughout the School of Jewish Studies (SJS).  Depending on the project and subject, our Madrichim will study, prepare and learn how to teach students in the Torah Tots with a Twist (Newborn through 3.5 year olds) through Zayin (7th Grade).  All projects will have specific metrics to meet and will have to be approved by Mr. Sherman, Morah Aviva Tilles, Mr. Allan Arnet with feedback from the teachers whose classes they will be teaching.

Sundays, 9:15 a.m.-12:15 p.m.:

  • On Sundays our Madrichim will spend from 9:15 a.m.-10:30 a.m. in assigned classes or prayer services assisting teachers, practicing Hebrew with students one-on-one or in small groups.  
  • From 10:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m. the Madrichim will do their project-based learning with Morah Aviva and/or Mr. Arnet in Rooms 7 and 9, working on their projects to teach in our classes.  
  • From 11:30 a.m.-12:15 p.m. our Madrichim will have additional choices for how they spend their time.  They will sign up for their choices on a regular basis under the supervision of Morah Aviva and Mr. Arnet.  The choices are as follows: (1) JLab (text learning); (2) Current Events, (3) helping to teach in Omanut (Art) Chug; (4) helping to teach the conversational Ivrit (Hebrew) Chug; (5) helping to teach Band Chug; (6) help to teach Yad Squad (Torah Trope) Chug; helping to teach the Kahoot Chug.

Wednesdays, 4:15 p.m.-6:15 p.m.:

  • The focus for our Madrichim will be helping students in Tefillah, Jewish Studies or Hebrew classes.  There will be a lot of one-on-one and small group work and helping to prepare students deliver D’var Torah speeches from the bimah.  Our Madrichim will be able to help our younger students prepare their Torah readings for SFP and/or holidays
