Confirmation

confirmationclass200

 

Confirmation is what we call our post B'nai Mitzvah educational program at Beth Shalom. It is a program particularly designed for 8th, 9th and 10th graders. Meeting two Wednesday evenings a month, Confirmation begins with a casual pizza dinner, allowing time for the teens to schmooze, catch-up and just 'hang out' at the Temple. We then break into elective groups, fashioned according to the stated desires and interests of the teenagers. In previous years, our topics have included such diverse subjects as "Jewish Food", "What's Jewish about Harry Potter?", "Jewish Answers to Ethical Dilemmas", "Does it Matter Who I Date?" and "Comparative Religion". Tenth graders spend significant time during the year studying with the Rabbi in preparation for their Confirmation ceremony in the spring. At that time, they lead the service and share their own thoughts about Jewish identity and key Jewish concepts.

Confirmation allows our teens to develop their own Jewish identities and strengthen their bonds with Jewish friends – all while having fun!
