Formal religious training continues after the Bnai Mitzvah with a two-year Confirmation Class so that our teenagers continue to be involved in religious study and participate in communal activities throughout their teen years. The course of study emphasizes Jewish ethical and philosophical teachings and how these values affect life experiences. Students also study the Holocaust in depth, the saga of the state of Israel's birth, and its place in the world today. Many of the students also are able to have the experience of going to Israel with Rabbi Feferman and seeing firsthand what Israel is like. It is an extraordinary experience for the class.
Some of our teenagers also work as teachers' aides in Sunday School and thus continue their commitment to Jewish study and heritage.
