The Confirmation service at Temple Emanuel is one of the most beautiful, uplifting and meaningful of the entire year. Confirmation occurs during Shavuot in the students 10th grade year and recognizes the achievement of ten years of study and Temple involvement.
Confirmation students symbolically accept the Torah during the service, and lead the entire service themselves. The service begins with a formal processional, with students carrying long-stemmed roses, but the highlight of the service are the informal, personal reflections and reminiscences.
Confirmation focuses on a life-long commitment to Judaism and many of our students continue their Jewish studies in our Elite, 11th and 12th grade program.
Students enter the Confirmation Academy in 8th grade. One of our goals is for the students to visit Israel with our Rabbi in the 10th grade. Temple Emanuel proudly particpates in the Gift of Israel program.
