Midrasha High: 8-12

It’s true - there is life after b’nai mitzvah!

Don’t worry—at Temple Beth Shalom, there are still many ways to be involved after your b’nai mitzvah. Step one is to join us at Midrasha High, which will meet Sundays from 12:45pm to 2:15 p.m. during the school year. All 8th through 12th graders are welcome.

                  The first day of 2023-2024 Midrasha High is Sunday, October 22 at 12:45pm

The class is quite free-wheeling, and “getting side-tracked” is welcome and even expected. Our curriculum covers many topics related to Jewish life in the modern world, ranging from individual spiritual journeys, comparative religions, the modern state of Israel, and Jewish perspectives on contemporary social issues—to name just a few. It certainly has a place for your questions, ideas, and opinions as a Jewish young adult. Download an overview of the Midrasha High curriculum.

We also take part in special events at Temple Beth Shalom and in the Spokane community, including tzedakah opportunities, Yom Hashoah, special speakers, and the Spokane Jewish Film Festival. Registering for and participating regularly in Midrasha High is one of the requirements for receiving a scholarship to attend USY and Israel programs.

Madrichim Leadership Program

Are you ready to take on more leadership in our congregation?

The Temple Beth Shalom madrichim program is a leadership opportunity available for students in grades 8 through 12. Our madrichim (teachers, guides) are teens who assist and provide leadership in Sunday school and Hebrew school. They work side by side with teachers and act as role models for students.

Interested students please contact Admin Assistant, Cicely West at 509-747-3304 or to receive an application or you can find it here.

Parents can learn more about the Madrichim program by downloading the Parents’ Handbook from the Midrasha Registration page.
