Yom Shishi, 29 Sivan 5777

Temple Israel welcomes new students to the Religious School through a Consecration ceremony. Held on Simchat Torah, the holiday which affirms the importance of lifelong study, this service marks the beginning of each student's religious education. Celebrants receive blessings from the clergy, certificates of consecration, and miniature Torah scrolls.

In the weeks prior to Simchat Torah, Cantor Contzius teaches the incoming group to recite the Shema and sing about the Torah. On the evening of Consecration, the students gather with the clergy and Temple president for a commemorative photograph which will later be hung in our Youth Lounge, alongside dozens of others from all of the Consecration classes in our Religious School's history.
