Kesher’s Madrichim (Leadership) Program is open for high school students (9th & 10th graders should also be enrolled in Confirmation class).
By becoming a Madrich(a), high schoolers will serve as a teacher’s assistant in one of our Kesher groups on Sunday mornings, and/or during Kesher B’Ivrit (Hebrew classes) on Sunday afternoons. Madrichim help teachers with daily activities such as: leading small groups, taking attendance, helping with art projects, working with students who need some extra attention, and most importantly, serving as a Jewish role models for younger children.
Working as a Madrich/Madricha is a paid work position. While madrichim assist teachers in classroom tasks, their responsibilities go beyond the administrative duties suggested by the term “teachers’ assistant.” As madrichim, they guide younger students toward a positive Jewish journey experience by demonstrating their involvement, their skills at collaboration, and their initiative.

Hashiveinu / Return Again:
When a loved one dies, families and friends need comfort and support. The time of bereavement is difficult. Please call the office or Rabbi to set up funeral services, shiva minyans, and unveilings and for the support your family needs during this time.
Rabbi Samuels is here to help you and your family though this stage in life. He will inform you of the various end-of-life Jewish rituals and do his best to accommodate your specific needs. You can download information about Beth Israel’s cemetery fees here.
Beth Israel has an End of Life pamphlet (below), and an online “My Wishes” form, that can help with advance planning. If you prefer to have a printed copy, you can pick them up in the Beth Israel office.
Celebrating First Day Rosh Hashanah in our new building:
Beth Israel has formed its own Shabbat Dinner Crowd — a flash mob Shabbat dinner experience — based on a successful format operating in Seattle.
How it works:
You’ll get an email the Sunday before the fifth Friday of the month, seeking a dinner host. Someone volunteers a location and guests supply the food (a main dish or a side, enough to feed your family). The dinner is casual — buffet style, paper plates and jeans are fine. Just come and enjoy. Dinners can be meat, dairy, or vegetarian. Hosts, please let everyone know what the kashrut status of the meal is.
It’s simple — if you can host, post a note to the e-mail list for your community. If you can attend, then reply to the dinner post so everyone knows.
Want to be part of the dinner crowd, but didn’t receive an email? Sign up here. Have friends who aren’t Beth Israel members, who want to participate? Invite them (and let firstname.lastname@example.org know)! They can signup online.
Any other questions? Call Melissa Schapiro, (360) 738-7182, or email email@example.com
Let’s keep this rolling by having someone host every time!
