Madrichim (teachers’ assistants)

This program develops useful leadership skills through working as teachers and office assistants. The Madrichim will undergo training that will include learning how to work with children and developing professional skills. The Madrichim are expected to act as role-models to the Limudim students, maintaining a professional and respectful domineer at all times.

Social programs

IKAR teens will have an opportunity to attend recreational, social, and social-justice-focused events once a month, which will enable them to create, develop, and foster friendships – as well as deepen their engagement and commitment to the Jewish community. Be sure to follow our emails for a calendar of these events.
