7th & 8th Grade Madrichim

Madrichim in Hebrew means leaders.

Our Madrichim program strives to create young leaders within our Jewish community. Our 7th and 8th grade programs keeps our students engaged in Temple life by providing meaningful, innovated and individualized Jewish learning experiences.

This program takes a new approach to Jewish education, using “camp style,” experiential and social learning in concentrated blocks of time. The Madrichim program has a special cadre of teachers and specialists, including our rabbis, working with our students to form bonds and explore Jewish themes in a very focused way, one that includes social action as its centerpiece.

7th Grade: B’tzelem Elohim

Madrichim 7th Grade Calendar 2019-2020

The theme of the 7th grade Madrichim program is B’tzelem Elohim, living in the image of God. Our 7th graders, along with Rabbi Dan, meet twice a month. Through discussion, engaging activities and social events, our 7th graders explore their own Jewish identity and place in the Jewish community as they become Bar and Bat Mitzvah.

8th Grade: Social Action Corps

Madrichim 8th Grade Calendar 2019-2020

Our 8th Grade Madrichim program focuses on social action and Tikkun Olam–repairing our world. The 8th grade Social Action Corps looks at some of the challenges our Detroit community faces through a Jewish lens and dedicates the year to volunteer work. In a fun and social environment, our 8th graders discuss the importance of social action as individuals and as Jews.
