Confirmation

Monday evening | 6:30–8:00 pm

Includes dinner from 6:30-7:00 pm!

Confirmation Part 1: Grade 9

Confirmation begins in 9th Grade as part of a two-year program of high school level Jewish learning. We believe that staying engaged with Jewish friends and Jewish learning all through high school is not only important, but also essential! Taught by Rabbi Davis and Barb Shimansky, the curriculum focuses on text and Mussar, a Jewish spiritual practice that gives concrete instructions on how to live a meaningful and ethical life. 9th Grade Confirmation provides an important safe space for our teenagers to explore personal growth and the "real stuff" in their lives with Jewish peers and trusted adults. Our sessions will be filled with connection, friendship, and learning for Jewish personal, spiritual, and ethical growth. The 9th Grade also enjoys a weekend trip to New York City!

Confirmation Part 2: Grade 10

Confirmation continues and is led by Rabbi Gayle Pomerantz and Rabbi Joanne Loiben. The 10th Grade experience focuses on “Questions Google Can’t Answer: Why be Jewish? To whom should I give? For whom am I responsible? What is family? Who is God?” Students will learn, grow, challenge, and discuss with the clergy and with one another. This year also includes the L’Taken experience with the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism in Washington, DC, and culminates in a beautiful ceremony of Confirmation in the spring.
