7th–12th Grade

Our dynamic learner-centered program gives the high school student an opportunity to explore the connection between mitzvot (“good deeds”), and the modern world. By studying alongside their peers, exploring ancient and modern text, and focusing on arts and repairing the world, our teens form a close community of Jewish leaders who find themselves at home at the synagogue and with one another. The Tichon program is open to everyone in the community and we encourage teens from all over Marin to meet, learn, and socialize with each other as participants in this program.

The madrichim program is a leadership program for students in 8th grade and older. The teens work with teachers in the classrooms during our Beit Binah program for Pre-K through 6th grade, as well as helping with other programs both in and out of the synagogue. They attend teacher meetings and trainings to hone their skills as leaders. This is a great opportunity for teens who want to gain universal skills in program development and facilitation, be more closely connected to the Kol Shofar community, or make a few bucks…yes, madrichim get paid! Not only is it a great opportunity for the teens, but they provide invaluable support for the programs that we run.
