Yom Rishon, 23 Shevat 5777

Tenth grade students engage in an intensive study experience in preparation for celebrating their Confirmation. Confirmation class is taught by the clergy and focuses on theology, social justice, and Reform Judaism. The highlight of the year is a class trip to the Religious Action Center in  Washington, D.C. to participate in a weekend retreat on social justice advocacy.

At the end of the year, confirmation students lead the congregation in worship and study at the Confirmation service on the festival of Shavuot. Students are also encouraged to visit Israel on a summer tour at the end of the Confirmation year.
