The eighth-grade program at Beth Emet has several different components, all geared towards developing leadership skills and fostering a sense of community.

The Mitzvah Corps program provides an opportunity for students to put Jewish values into practice through social action and experiential learning that takes teens out of the classroom and into the community. Through monthly off-site experiences, teens volunteer, meet with social service agencies and engage in hands-on learning. In addition, Mitzvah Corps students experience monthly classroom sessions that contextualize experiences and promote engaged Jewish learning. 

The Madrichim in Training program helps students harness leadership abilities as they learn skills necessary to be a classroom assistant (boys: madrich, girls: madricha, plural: madrichim) in our Beit Sefer program. The skills learned in this class apply not only to the synagogue classroom but in a situation in which students may take on leadership roles.

In addition, Conversational Hebrew is offered for seventh and eighth-grade students who wish to continue with formal Hebrew education.
