Commitment to Jewish Values
Confirmation is a Reform-originated ceremony for boys and girls that is tied to the springtime holiday of Shavuot. It constitutes an individual and group affirmation of commitment to the Jewish people. Confirmation, one of the "youngest" Jewish life-cycle ceremonies, began less than 200 years ago.
Our teens participate in pre-confirmation, confirmation, and post-confirmation programs as part of the Diamond Family Religious School. These programs focus on leadership and a practical application of Judaism in the real world. Our teens will enjoy furthering their Jewish education in a fun and social environment.
The pre-confirmation, confirmation, and post-confirmation programs enable teens to get involved in their community and engage in social action initiatives. This culminates with a trip to Washington D.C. for our 10th-grade confirmation students.
