confirmation class

Confirmation marks a young adultโ€™s affirmation of his or her Jewish identity. Confirmation takes place at the end of 10th grade, after students spend a year of intensive classroom study with our clergy striving to define their personal Jewish philosophy and theology. Students in the confirmation class discuss and debate Jewish social ethics and values and consider how these apply to contemporary issues. They also look at issues of identity, sexual values, antisemitism, and mixed marriage, and read sections of Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs, Ruth, and Esther.Congregation Beth Israel
