Confirmation

religious school

Temple Emanu-El offers the option of Confirmation to our high-school-age students. Our Confirmation class meets throughout the year, two Sunday’s per month, with Rabbi Davidson and Emma Kate Lindsey, Director of Youth Learning and Engagement, exploring topics related to God, Torah, and Israel.

Our year-long program culminates on Shavout in our Fifth Avenue Sanctuary, as we celebrate our students reaffirmation and commitment to embrace Jewish learning and tradition in their lives. Standing on the pulpit, leading the congregation in worship, and sharing their beliefs with the community is usually a rite of passage they will remember forever.

All high school students whose families are members of Temple Emanu-El may participate in the High School Confirmation Program. To receive a registration form, contact the Religious School Office at (212) 507-9546.
