Madrichim is the plural of the Hebrew "madrich" (for a male) and "madricha" (for a female) and comes from the word "to lead." Madrichim not only aid teachers in the classroom, but are leaders in our synagogue by being role models. Madrichim emphasize their role model commitment to their Jewish community through their continued involvement in our school and by passing on to younger students what they have learned.
The Madrichim program is a paid program for high school students to work in classrooms with Yachad teachers and students, and to gain leadership and classroom experience.
