Madrichim serve as teaching assistants in the classroom and may support our schools in other capacities.
Madrichim support our Religious and Hebrew Schools by working in the classrooms as teaching assistants, providing support to both the students and teacher. Working in this role provides an opportunity for our teens to build self-confidence, strengthen their own Jewish values, serve as role models for the younger children, and begin to learn practical teaching skills. Madrichim are required to participate in a series of leadership training sessions, held several times throughout the year on Sunday afternoons following Religious School. Eighth and ninth grade students serve as madrichim volunteers and may earn community service for their work. Beginning in tenth grade, if a teen has volunteered for at least one year, they are eligible to be paid for their work. For more information about serving as a madrich (male) or madricha (female), please review our Madrichim Introductory Letter and Application.
It is our pleasure to introduce our madrichim for the coming year:
Hebrew School Madrichim: Amanda Richman, Julliana Shaffer
Religious School Madrichim: Hannah Guyer, Owen Guyer, Hannah Leibert,
Naomi Paskowitz, Jake Rabin, Amanda Richman, Allison Scher, Julliana Shaffer
Kristi Link-Crosier will continue as our Madrichim Coordinator. Kristi brings an abundance of skills and experience in working with teens and has been actively involved in the Davis Jewish community since her days at UC Davis as both an undergraduate and law school student. Kristi is also the teacher for our Kindergarten & First Grade Religious School Class. Kristi is very excited to work with our teens and to support them in continuing their own Jewish education, instilling a love of Judaism, and guiding them to inspire Jewish learning in younger children.
