Our religious school is a Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade program with several milestone life cycle events along the way. Confirmation is a special life cycle event, created in the modern era, to mark a time in a young Jewish person’s life where they confirm their commitment to Judaism and the Jewish people. At Temple Israel this takes place for 10th grade on or near the spring festival of Shavuot. In reaching this milestone, our young adults stand symbolically at the foot of Mount Sinai where the Jewish people received the commandments. Confirmation students spend the year studying with our rabbis. At the Confirmation Service, students lead us, together as a group, in prayer and study.
