Confirmation

Monday evening | 7:00–8:00 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, it's essential. The Fall semester is led by Rabbi Ethan Bair and is centered on middot-character development for mensches. The Spring semester is led by Rabbi Robert Davis and focuses on Pirkei Avot, ethical teachings for every-day life. We have purposefully chosen topics for the 9th grade curriculum, which are both accessible and in line with important questions teens at this time of life are already thinking about. 9th Grade Confirmation provides a "safe space" for our teenagers to explore personal growth and the "real stuff" in their lives with Jewish peers and a rabbi. In these unusual and socially challenging times, we believe this Jewish safe space is even more important. Join us on Monday nights at 7:00 pm on Zoom for a weekly dose of connection, friendship, and learning for Jewish personal, spiritual, and ethical growth.

Confirmation Part 2: Grade 10

Confirmation continues and is led by Rabbi Gayle Pomerantz (fall) and Rabbi Joanne Loiben (spring). This year’s 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 a new version of the L’Taken experience with the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism (which involves no travel due to Covid) and culminates in a beautiful ceremony of Confirmation in the spring.
