High School Confirmation Program
A Jewish journey through adolescence, from Egypt to Sinai...
Temple Emanu-El’s High School Confirmation Program is led by Rabbi Joshua Davidson, Rabbi Allison Tick Brill and Missy Bell, our program director of Youth Learning and Engagement.
We will meet approximately two Monday evenings a month to enjoy dinner
and discuss important questions:
• How do we respond to daunting challenges in the world around us?
• How does God call us — and how do we answer?
The year culminates with a magnificent Confirmation Ceremony in our Fifth Avenue Sanctuary on Shavuot evening. Standing on the pulpit, leading the congregation in worship, and sharing your beliefs with the community is a rite of passage you’ll remember forever.
All high school students whose families are members of Congregation Emanu-El may participate in the High School Confirmation Program. To receive a registration form, please contact the Religious School Office at (212) 507-9546 or download the form. Tuition is $1,350. Scholarships are available on a need basis; please contact the Religious School.
