9th Grade
Kol Yisrael Arevim Zeh B’Zeh
(All of Israel is Responsible for One Another)

Building off of the success of our Hot Topics program from this past year where our students were able to develop an understanding of the most compelling issues of our day (gun control, immigration, taxation, etc.) through a pro/con discussion, 9th grade will feature an in-depth program exploring with Rabbi Brad how class and poverty underlie each of the issues we confront
today. Broken into two parts, students may choose either (or both!) of the sections to explore. Semester 1 will challenge how we think about poverty and class; Semester 2 will challenge how class and poverty are central to almost every challenging issue in our country.

9th graders are also invited to participate in SCRUFY, our social club for 9th-12th graders and sign up to be Madrichim.

10th Grade
Confirmation provides an ideal setting for students to explore their Judaism together with the Temple Sinai Clergy team. Confirmation allows sophomores to explore the relevance and importance of enduring topics related to Jewish identity such as God, Torah, Israel and more. The Confirmation year includes both an opening retreat in Atlanta as well as a much anticipated class trip to New York in the Spring, and culminates with a special Confirmation service in May.

10th graders may also join SCRUFY, as well as apply to serve as Madrichim (Teaching Assistants) for Noar Sunday and/or Noar Hebrew. 

11th & 12th Grade
Join fellow 11th & 12th graders for speakers and panels throughout the year to discuss and learn more about Israel on Campus, Teen Mental Health, Preparing for College, and more. No advance registration required.

11th-12th graders can further engage with fellow teens at SCRUFY and be Teaching Assistants in our Madrichim program. 12th graders are also invited to apply for our SCRUFY Leadership Board.

Temple Sinai’s Madrichim (Teaching Assistants) Program is for students who will be in 8th-12th grade during the 2019-2020 school year. The Madrichim Program will not only enhance your Jewish knowledge and identity, but also enhance the Noar Sunday and/or Noar Hebrew experience for children Pre-K through 6th grade. By becoming a Madrich/a, you will serve as a Teacher Assistant in one of our Noar Sunday and/or Noar Hebrew programs on Sundays. Madrichim help teachers with daily activities, such as leading small groups, taking attendance, helping with hands-on learning projects, working with students who may need extra attention, and most importantly, serving as a Jewish role model for our kids!
