Hebrew School Help
After graduating from Hebrew School many of our teenagers remain involved with the school as madrachim (aides), supporting and assisting Hebrew School teachers.
Teens are involved in both the Lower and Upper Schools, and in some cases have gone on to lead their own classroom. This bridge from learner to teacher is another way that we strive to keep young adults engaged in the congregation.
Agudas Achim's teen group is open to post b'nai mitzvah members of the congregation. Under the able leadership of Bruce Ganek, the group generally plans one monthly social trip and an overnight trip in the spring. Past events have included trips to a comedy show, the beach, bowling, the drive-in, Six Flags, New York City, and Washington DC.
The goal is to provide a forum for teen members of the congregation to stay in touch. Because our members come from many different towns in southeastern Massachusetts, most of our students only see their Jewish friends during Hebrew School or planned social events. Once they graduate from Hebrew School, opportunities to get together dwindle significantly. While the group does engage in some service learning, its overall intent is social.
If you're interested in joining the group or learning more about it, please contact Bruce at firstname.lastname@example.org
