We offer innovative, experiential, and compelling educational programs for children at Temple and JBSC to help them learn about Judaism and develop their sense of Jewish identity.
This innovative program engages students through memorable experiences both inside and outside WHC walls. Pre-Confirmation provides students with social opportunities while helping them develop lifelong Jewish values. Each year, students participate in weekend-long retreats and trips, half- and full-day field trips, and evening programs.
The pinnacle of our Religious School, coordinated by Rabbi Shankman, is our 10th grade Confirmation year. The Confirmation experience affirms our students’ connection to their Washington Hebrew community, while providing a strong foundation in Jewish values and a thorough understanding of Reform Jewish ideology and identity. Among the highlights of this program are a trip to New York City, the Confirmation Retreat, the RAC L’taken Seminar, and the Confirmation service, designed and led by the Confirmands.
Post Confirmation is a new program open to all 11th and 12th graders – whether or not they have been Confirmed.
