If you walk down the school hallway at Am Shalom, you'll see the Confirmation class pictures all the way back to Am Shalom's founding. As a communal rite of passage, Confirmation enhances the learning that begins with elementary school, continues through the Bar and Bat Mitzvah process, and expands dramatically in the high school years.
Confirmation is an opportunity to affirm not only each student's individual Jewish identity, but also to lift up the value of community within Judaism. Our students bond with each other and their teachers on our annual Confirmation Retreat.
Check out our video below, of our confirmation students from the class of 5775, when they shared their spiritual autobiographies at our confirmation service on May 15, 2015.
