Youth and Family Life

At Hevreh, children are an integral part of our community. Hevreh’s Religious School serves children by providing a Jewish education that includes the study of Torah, Hebrew and prayer, Jewish culture, history and ethics, Jewish literature, music and art, and Israel. Through our Yachad program, family education is a central component of Hevreh’s Religious School.


We seek to create a place that our children and their families will view as their own: a place where they may bring their enthusiasm, their curiosity, their questions and their ideas for exploration. We provide an experience where children and their families learn by doing.


Our goal is to instill in all our students a belief system and the skills that will foster a strong Jewish identity to sustain them throughout their lives.


The Education Team,


    Rabbi Jodie Gordon, Education Director

    Jodie Friedman, Program Associate

madrich/a: from the Hebrew word “to guide” or “to lead”


Hevreh’s Madrichim Program is built for teens who have become Bar or Bat Mitzvah and are looking to continue their Jewish journey as leaders in the Religious and Hebrew School. Our madrichim are students in 8-12 grade enrolled in either the Pre-Confirmation or Confirmation class. Our madrichim not only serve as role models and guides to our younger students, but we in turn guide them in developing their teaching and leadership skills while strengthening their Jewish identity.
