Machar Youth Group

Grades 3-5

The goal of Machar is to prepare children for machar—tomorrow. This group meets monthly for social programs. We build friendships and allow students to feel a part of the B’nai Israel family. Machar events have included Adventure Park, Museum visits,  a rocking’ Hanukkah party, and much more! Parents are encouraged to chaperone at least one Machar event during the course of the year. Participants in Machar activities must be members of B’nai Israel Congregation.


Erin Willcher is ready for another amazing year as the Machar advisor.  Erin is a former camp counselor, B’nai Mitzvah tutor, and orientation leader.  Erin brings plenty of fun and amazing program ideas to her role as Machar Advisor.


Annual Membership Fee: $25
