Pre-Confirmation (Grades 8-9)

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.

Grade 8

Experiences include participating in a challenge course, a meaningful day visiting D.C. memorials, a day of community service, and helping run our Temple Purim Carnival. Our 8th graders have three weekend retreats as well as monthly Tuesday night programs featuring authors, movies, special programs, and more.

Grade 9

The highlight of the 9th grade year are the three weekend retreats, which include programming to help our teens discover themselves as they embark on their high school years –  some of the most important programming any congregation can offer its teens. These retreats are a “rite of passage” for every WHC teen! Other programs include trips to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and Annapolis in addition to many other special events. Monthly weeknight programming complements the weekend activities, trips, and retreats
