Post B'nai Mitzvah

8th/9th Grade

The 8th and 9th grades will be instructed by Jennifer Halls. We will engage the students through discussions that will bring Pirkei Avot, the ethics of our fathers, and Torah to the forefront of their lives. We will also include some young adult Jewish book studies and writing from a Jewish perspective. This class will meet at Kol Ami on Sunday mornings, 10:00 - 11:00 a.m., on these dates:   Oct. 8, Nov. 5, Dec. 3, Jan. 21, Feb. 4, Mar. 4, Apr. 8.

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

Social Justice

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.

 

It is important to note that Confirmation marks the culmination of years of study. Students who wish to be Confirmed must complete the eighth and ninth grade classes of The Academy.

 

Brunch with the Rabbi (11th/12th Grade)

The 11th and 12th grades will be instructed by Rabbi Siegel. We will be using a curriculum based on Jewish “middot” utilizing Jewish texts, short films, interesting narratives, and classroom discussion.  High school can be filled with confusing and difficult events and even more difficult decisions. Our Academy program will help to bring Jewish values and perspectives to light which will help to guide them through these times. This brunch will take place on Sunday, once each month, 10:00 - 11:00 a.m., on these dates: Oct. 8, Nov. 5, Dec. 3, Jan. 21, Feb. 4, Mar. 4, Apr. 8.
