Or Hadash Teen Leaders

We offer a variety of engagement opportunities for our teens. Students in grades eight through twelve are invited to join our madrichim program and become teacher aids in Machon Hadash. Students in grades nine through twelve are invited to work as madrichim (teacher assistants) during our High Holiday youth programs. Both opportunities offer leadership training that set our teens apart from all the rest. Through these experiences, our teens gain invaluable leadership skills.     

Machon Hadash Madrichim Program

Do you want to gain valuable leadership skills? Are you interested in working with children? Then the Machon Hadash madrichim program is for you.

By becoming a madrich/a, you will serve as a teacher's assistant in one of our classrooms on Shabbat mornings or Wednesday afternoons, helping the teacher with daily activities, leading small groups, taking attendance, helping with art projects, working with students who need some extra attention, and most importantly, serving as a Jewish role model for our kids!

High Holiday Madrichim Program

Our high holiday youth programming offers children ages four to thirteen the opportunity to experience the hagim (holidays) in a meaningful and age-appropriate manner. We ask our students in grades eleven and twelve to assist in leading our High Holiday youth programming. These high schoolers will participate in training so that they can offer our younger children special and unique hag (holiday) programming. Our young leaders find this work to be extremely significant and important to their role within the Or Hadash community.
