Midrasha offers classes in Hebrew and Jewish Studies, and in elective subjects for students in grades 8 through 12.
The Midrasha Hebrew High School, founded in 1975, is jointly sponsored by Beth Israel Center, Temple Beth El, and Jewish Federation of Madison. The purpose of Midrasha is to provide students with experiences and educational opportunities that will strengthen their Jewish identity and encourage and stimulate their desire to learn about their heritage. Midrasha offers classes in Hebrew and Jewish Studies, and in elective subjects for students in grades 8 through 12, who need not be affiliated with a synagogue to enroll. The curriculum at Midrasha is flexible, constantly evaluated and updated. Midrasha educators are selected not only for their expertise in their subject area, but also for their ability to communicate their knowledge to teens. Classroom teaching relies on a variety of techniques, including audiovisual aids, guest lecturers, as well as interactive discussions. Time for students to socialize both informally and at organized communal events is an integral part of the Midrasha experience. Midrasha is committed to serving eighth through twelfth grade students from a variety of denominational and non-affiliated backgrounds, and all courses are taught without denominational bias. Studying at Midrasha provides our students with an opportunity to develop a strong, positive identity and set of values within the framework of a united Jewish people. Get Foreign Language Credit The Madison Metropolitan School District and many other area school districts grant foreign language credit for the study of Hebrew at Midrasha. Apply for the Midrasha Incentive Award Graduating Seniors who attend Midrasha continuously from 8th grade may be eligible for the Laurence A. Weinstein Midrasha Incentive Award of up to $2,000 to continue their Jewish education following graduation. Join the Student Advisory Panel This year we are asking interested students to serve on the Midrasha Student Advisory Panel. This panel will meet at least once each semester and after that as needed. This panel will have a direct impact on the Midrasha program and is an exciting opportunity for students. Students should indicate on their registration form if they are interested. A Special Note about Confirmation The Madison Midrasha is a community based five-year/ten semester program leading to graduation and a diploma of Jewish Studies. It is not to be confused with Temple Beth El's Confirmation program. Temple Beth El requires Midrasha attendance as part of that program. We suggest you contact Larry Kohn for Confirmation information. Educate young people in the way to go, and even when they grow old, they will not depart from it. ~ Proverbs 22:6
