Mazal Tov on Beginning the Process Toward Confirmation!
This is our final formal Religious School program, which is the 10th grade segment of our Gesher Program. This class culminates with the Confirmation Tefillah (prayer service). The curriculum includes Jewish ethics and explores contemporary issues from a Jewish point of view. Dilemmas of vital importance to our young people are candidly discussed and explored in a safe and supportive environment. While subjects are discussed from all standpoints, Jewish values are clearly stated. Our goal is for students to develop the tools to make sound choices in all aspects of their lives. Confirmation is taught by our Rabbi Straus and Director of Education Marcy Goldberg.
