Confirmation (10th Grade)
Confirmation will be instructed by Rabbi Siegel. The Kol Ami Confirmation program is designed to help our students gain new perspectives of themselves and others. This is the age at which teens are seeking individuality and starting to make personal choices about essential issues. Through a variety of approaches, our teens have an opportunity to grow as Jews and to view Judaism as a continuous resource to them. Topics addressed are those which are of current concern to the students and which will become more relevant as they begin their college careers. Some topics might be:
Substance Abuse and Self-Esteem
Jewish Life on Campus
Israel and Me
To Be a Jew in the World
As a culminating event, the Confirmation Class will lead a very special Shabbat service on Saturday, May 19, 2018.
This class will meet 1st semester on Sunday mornings, 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m., on these dates: Oct. 8, Nov. 5, Dec. 3. 2nd semester this class will meet Sunday mornings, 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. on these dates: Jan. 21, Feb. 4, Mar. 4, Mar. 25, Apr. 8, Apr. 22, and May 19.
