Confirmation is a religious experience during which students affirm their commitment to Judaism as their cultural and religious identity. The Confirmation class will explore contemporary and relevant issues through the lens of the Ten Commandments. In addition, students will explore American-Jewish history by tracing the roots of their own family history.
The vehicle for communicating the knowledge and feelings about being Jewish is the Shavuot Confirmation Service, which students create as their commitment to the covenant with the Jewish people. This service is written by members of the class in consultation with the Rabbis, Cantor and Temple Senior staff.
The feeling of community, as well as respect for self and others as people and Jews, are integral parts of our Religious School objectives.
The Confirmation Retreat is a requirement for the celebration of Confirmation. In the event that a student is unable to attend, an alternative academic project is required, which must be approved by clergy.
CONFIRMATION SERVICE ATTENDANCE
Another requirement for the celebration of Confirmation is attendance at a minimum of ten Shabbat or Festival Services. They may also be attended at either Orthodox or Conservative synagogues or at another Reform synagogue. Your attendance should be recorded on the weekly sign-in sheets outside the sanctuary.
