A Jewish journey through adolescence, from Egypt to Sinai...
Co-taught by Senior Rabbi Joshua Davidson, Assistant Rabbi Allison Tick and Program Director of Youth Learning and Engagement Missy Bell, the curriculum includes intellectual text study, meaningful discussion, a wilderness hike and other experiential learning activities. As a class, you will pick an enduring challenge facing society and then respond to it through the lenses of Torah, Avodah and G’milut Chasadim.
The year culminates with a magnificent Confirmation Ceremony in our Fifth Avenue Sanctuary on Shavuot evening. You will lead the congregation in worship and study, reconfirming your commitment to Jewish learning and to the Emanu-El community. Standing on the pulpit and sharing your beliefs and values with the congregation is a rite of passage you will remember for the rest of your life.
All high school students whose families are members of Congregation Emanu-El may participate in the High School Confirmation Program.
