Confirmation Ceremony

7:00 pm | April 19

Temple Beth Sholom

 

Come honor and celebrate with our Confirmation Class as they culminate their year-long course designed to allow for student driven curriculum which  encompassed topics such as human sexuality, God and religion, Israel and Her Neighbors as well as self-identity and Jewish values. Thursday’s special service was written and will be lead by our teens featuring original readings, teen led musical pieces, Torah reading from the 10-commandements and much more. The evening, which will conclude with a delicious dessert reception, is sure to be a meaningful and enjoyable experience for all. (Especially encouraged to attend are our current TBS 9th graders who may be wondering what confirmation could look like for them in the following year.)

His work has been exhibited throughout the U.S. and abroad and can be found in collections including the UM Braman Miller Center for Jewish Student Life, Royal Caribbean Cruises and ForFreedoms.org. His series, I’m With The Banned, focuses on the corrosive power of false narratives in political discourse and raises “awareness about injustices occurring throughout America,” (Miami New Times). Sheldon is currently collaborating with PAMM and PBS on future episodes of Meet Your Makers, the TV project he created to explore S. Florida’s most fascinating artistic minds.
