Madrichim Program






B'nai Jacob School provides an opportunity for its graduates who want to stay involved and give back.

This vibrant, committed group of teenagers donate their time, energy, and skills to the school. Their contributions range from clerical, to creative, to educational; and provide a vital role in the success of a typical Sunday school day. At any point of the morning, you may see madrichim doing office work, selling snacks, tutoring Hebrew, helping out in the classroom, or simply holding a hand. Each madrich commits to a minimum of 36 hours per year and many far exceed that amount. This program keeps these young congregants connected to B’nai Jacob and to Jewish life. We are very proud of this program and all the young people who call themselves madrichim, past and present.
