Confirmation

Confirmation Class of 2017

Jewish learning continues beyond B’nai Mitzvah! Each year, our Tenth Grade students  participate in a meaningful course of Jewish learning.  They complete the year by leading Erev Shavuot ( Eve of Shavuot) services together as a class, as we celebrate our students’ confirmed status as members of the adult Jewish community.

Confirmation involves our students in an exploration of beliefs and practices that shape the life of the adult Jew. Instructed by Rabbi Gibson, our students struggle with their own theology, learn traditional and creative models of exploring those basic beliefs through prayer, and research the thoughts of others as they develop their own statement about God.

The year includes a powerful Shabbat retreat and an on-going tzedakah commitment. For more information, contact Debbie Haber.

Celebrate Shavuot

Celebrate Shavuot

Shavuot means “weeks.” It marks the completion of the seven-week counting period, the Omer, between Passover and Shavuot. One of the three pilgrimage holidays mentioned in the Torah, it celebrates both the harvest of the first fruits and the giving of the Torah to the Jewish people on Mount Sinai over 3,000 years ago.
