What is the Madrichim Leadership Program?

The Madrichim Leadership program is designed for creative and dedicated 7th-12th graders who are interested in gaining new skills, working as role models to younger students, and increasing students' knowledge of and connection to Judaism.

Students in 7th-12th grade have the opportunity to be a leader at Noar Sunday, interact with younger students as a role model, and help shape the program. Madrichim will gain new skills and develop new interests while earning community service hours or a paycheck. They will also forge new relationships with peers, clergy, staff, and the greater Temple Sinai community.

There are three different types of Madrichim, each with clear responsibilities, goals and skill development:
