Inspiring the Next Generation of Hebrew School Teachers

Micah Heilbron is a Brandeis University junior, double majoring in Near Eastern & Judaic studies and education studies, and the teacher leading BJEP’s Madrichim program.

At BJEP, my role is teacher to the Madrichim (Hebrew term meaning “guide” or “leader”), the 8th-12th grade teachers’ assistants. They have the opportunity to discover what their nefesh is, to realize what they have been transmitted and what they want to transmit to the Jewish future.  Learn more about the root of the word Nefesh, and about the Madrichim program here.
