Nosh & Drash Monday Night School

We bring quality learning, social experiences, and a warm, caring environment together to offer Jewish learning on Monday nights throughout the school year. Our program is based on a combination of learning about hot topics in Jewish life and Jewish values through the Chai Mitzvah Jewish values program for teens. This program was formerly called ATID.

Dual Enrollment Hebrew Program

Earn high school and college credit simultaneously by taking Hebrew on Sunday evenings at Adat Shalom Synagogue. This fully accredited program will give you your high school language credits as well as transferable college credits.

Classes meet from 5 to 6:30 p.m. on Sundays, beginning on September 10, and students are also required to complete additional work online each week. Oakland county high schools contribute to some of the cost of tuition each semester, and limited additional scholarship is available.

Earn up to 2.0 high school credits and 12 college credits over two years. Contact Dr. Melissa Ser for more information, or call 248-626-2153.

Madrichim Teen Leadership Program

Be a classroom assistant, and learn what it means to become a Jewish leader through our program of training and practical application. You will be assigned to a classroom or a student as a buddy, and take part in regular training during school hours. Contact Jodi Gross for more information on applying to become a madrich/a. Madrichim may work on Sundays and/or Wednesdays. Eighth graders may receive volunteer hours; high schoolers may opt for volunteer hours, a stipend, or a combination of the two. Space is limited.

Howard Wade Madrichim Leadership Institute (MLI)

Teens who are madrichim are invited to take part in the Jewish Federation’s Howard Wade Madrichim Leadership Institute, which provides in-depth training in working with students. Teens may participate for multiple years, as each year’s learning builds on the previous year. A stipend is provided to participants. More details will be sent to teens by email; for now, mark your calendars for the opening session on October 29, which will be hosted by Adat Shalom after school.
