At Temple Beth El, we not only teach our children, we turn our children into teachers. For more than 20 years, our teens have become madrichim (assistant teachers), B'nei Mitzvah tutors, shadows for special needs students, and technology, art and music assistants. What started out as a few interested teenagers helping out has grown into a multifaceted program that engages over 150 teens during the school year.

In affirming our commitment to our Beth El teen madrichim of the past, present and future, we are working to financially secure the program through both our Steven Gainsboro Teen Educator Fund and our Madrichim Endowment. To support and celebrate our Beth El Teens, join us for a meaningful service filled with the music of our Teen Band, Teen Vocal Ensemble, Song Leaders and Jew TuBE reflections. You will see how bright our future looks.
