It is the hope of our congregation that all students will continue their Judaic studies beyond their bar/bat mitzvah year. An active Post-B’nai Mitzvah group also meets on Sundays to study what it means to be a modern Jew. Classes runs from 12:30 – 1:30 PM at the temple for 8th to 12th graders, building upon previous education while tackling more mature topics that may be of greater interest to this age group. Class sessions operate in a casual atmosphere and center on group discussion. Class topics vary from year to year. Areas of study include theology, Reform Jewish philosophy, and ancient and modern Jewish history, taught by our Rabbi and another teacher. Confirmation takes place at the end of the tenth grade, and the Confirmands lead the congregation in a service created in part by the class, thereby affirming their faith in Judaism.
