Madrachim: Teen Mentors


Our Madrachim are High School age students enrolled in JRC's High School program that serve as mentors on Sundays for younger students. 

Madrachim are a huge asset to our Religious School and we value the role they play in helping to ensure our Sunday program runs smoothly. We view them as leaders at JRC and important role models for our students. Next year, our Madrachim work from 9:45am-12:30pm every Sunday when Religious School is in session.

Madrachim can also choose to serve during our Tuesday session from 4:15-6:15pm. Weekday volunteering is flexible and can be for either night or even a portion of the afternoon from 5:15-6:15. Please contact the Religious School if you are interested in this weekday opportunity.

At the end of this school year, we will know how many Madrachim are returning next year and therefore how many spots we have available. We will review the applications and let you know whether we have a position available for you. Unfortunately, we don't always have enough spots to accommodate everyone who wants to be a Madrich, but we always maintain an active list in case more help is needed, and we certainly do our best to find a role for everyone who wants one.

The Green Synagogue and the Pillars of Chai


In 2008, we built the first platinum LEED-certified green synagogue in North America. The construction required 18 pillars - the number in Hebrew that also means "chai" or "life." 

Now, more than ten years later, JRC has launched the Pillars of Chai Campaign to raise $4.4m to wholly own our beloved building.
