Schiff Tichon Sinai, will help 8th, 9th and 10th grade teens experience joy in Jewish learning, pride in being Jewish, and a commitment to participation in Jewish life. When our teens are connected to Temple Sinai they learn about Jewish life by actively experiencing it. Schiff Tichon Sinai combines the best of classroom-based and experiential education in a cohesive program that fosters Jewish identity development and community-building.

The goals of this program are to meet students where they are and to provide appropriate challenges for growth, to build leadership among our teens, to give them ownership of their learning; to provide multiple points of entry into Jewish life and to promote Jewish identity formation. Most of all, it will bring our kids together to have fun!

Activities will include: Discussion of ethics and contemporary issues, hands-on/tikkun olam experiences, trips to NYC and a fall weekend retreat.

*10th graders will join Rabbi TelRav for additional Confirmation activities.

FEE: $360

 

 

*CONFIRMATION

Led by Rabbi TelRav

Sunday mornings, 11:00am – 12:15pm

September 27 through June 10

At Temple Sinai, Confirmation takes place in the 10th grade year and is part of our Schiff Tichon Sinai Program. Confirmation studies teach young adult Jews that they are entering “a sacred community” in which they can question, challenge, and debate Jewish questions without being judged. The confirmation model also encourages youth to work together as a community to contribute to the world around them on Friday June 10, at 7:30pm. While Bar and Bat Mitzvah ceremonies focus on an individual child becoming a Jewish adult, Confirmation ceremonies focus on a community of young adults confirming their commitment to Judaism.

FEE: $360
