Jew Crew (post b’mitzvah)

IMG_0675We work hard to ensure that your teen’s journey in Judaism does not end with the b’mitzvah celebration.  This engaging program consists of two components:

The first component is a youth group, called the Jew Crew, led by Rabbi Mark Melamut, Education Director Melissa Herman, and selected Dartmouth students.  The youth group meets on alternate Tuesdays after Hebrew School from 5:30-7 pm, and does group mitzvah projects, goes on Jewish social outings, cooks Jewish food, does Jewish music and art projects, holds intellectual discussions, engages in Torah and Talmud study, watches Jewish-themed films, and does other enriching activities. We also take the Crew on an overnight trip to a place of Jewish interest (NYC, Montreal, etc.) to meet up with other Jewish youth for shabbat and see/do Jewish cultural things together.  

The second component to our teen programming is becoming a madrich/a (assistant teacher).  Each madrich is assigned to a classroom at the Hebrew school to shadow and assist the classroom teacher in order to gain exposure to teaching techniques related to Hebrew acquisition and Judaic studies.
