For many of our older teens this year is the best. For 45 minutes each week, the students meet with the rabbi and discuss a wide variety of very interesting topics.

This is a year of growth and learning that culminates in a beautiful Shavuot service during which some of our Confirmands share thoughts about how the class transformed their life and appreciation of Judaism.
