Confirmation is a great way for students to discover their Jewish identity and build community through studying, volunteering, and having fun together. Confirmation provides teens the opportunity to explore different ideas about Judaism and integrate them into their life as they grow into adulthood. They will discuss thoughts and beliefs about God, our traditions, Jewish values, and Israel. Confirmation encourages our next generation to take their places as leaders in our community.

WHAT STUDENTS ARE SAYING!
The Confirmation program was a deeply binding experience for the class. It presented a safe space for religious discovery, and thus a close community through which deep friendships were made.
