Madrichim Registration


Important Information for Madrichim

Temple Sinai’s dedicated teen workers are a true asset to the School of Jewish Life and Learning (SJLL).  Not only do they help the teachers, but they serve as valuable role models for younger students.  The SJLL is delighted that you would like to serve as a madrich/ah this coming school year. 

Please review (and print as desired) the list of madrichim traits included below so that you are clear what will be expected of you.  Completion of the application below will serve a brit (covenant) attesting that you acknowledge and accept the expectations and responsibilities enumerated herein. 

Please note that only students who are enrolled in post-b’nei mitzvah educational programming – Kesher (Grades 8/9), Confirmation (Grade 10) and Bogrim (Grades 11/12) – are eligible to serve as madrichim, and that while service during Grades 8-10 is volunteer, service during Grades 11 and 12 is compensated.

Thanks in advance for committing your time and energy to the SJLL and its students.
