Leadership Opportunities

Teen Crew/Madrichim: A special OKC teen program for 8th -12th Grade, Teen Crew, provides opportunities for teens to build leadership skills, learn how to plan activities, and create connections within the community. Teen Crew members serve as role models, and teachers. Working with adult service leaders, Teen Crew members bring the best youth programming to OKC children ages preschool to 7th grade. HERE is the Madrichim Handbook, a document with all the information a teen crew member will need to know about their responsibilities. For more information about teen leadership opportunities, please contact Rabbi Batya Glazer.

Mitzvah Scholars: Mitzvah Scholars usually involves a once-per-month commitment during the school year in 5th and 6th grades. About six times per year, these sessions take place from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM on Shabbat morning at Ohr Kodesh. Parents are encouraged to attend, as our classes are enriched when students and parents are in dialogue with each other. Click HERE for more details.
