Confirmation Service

You are cordially invited to join us at Temple for the 139th Confirmation service. Confirmation is the ceremony through which we recognize and celebrate the importance of continued Jewish education. It is traditionally linked to the festival of Shavuot when the first fruits were brought to be offered at the Temple.

During their years of study, WHC's Confirmands have developed a stronger connection to the Jewish people, a greater understanding of a wide range of Jewish values, and have come to more fully appreciate the diversity of Jewish beliefs and practices. Designed and led by our Confirmation Class, this special service will recognize the achievements of this year's Confirmands.
