Post Confirmation (Grades 11-12)

Post Confirmation is a program open to all 11th and 12th graders – whether or not they have been Confirmed.

Designed to equip students with information and knowledge that will help them in college, the program includes discussions about what is going on socially and politically in Israel and on college campuses today. Participants also have special access to guest speakers and the opportunity to develop leadership skills by serving as junior staff on our retreats and programs. Post Confirmation students also help plan and run “Winter Warmth,” a social action event, in partnership with Friendship Place, to provide free clothing and supplies to homeless individuals to help them prepare for the colder months.

Our Tuesday night sessions, which are held throughout the year, run from 7:00 - 8:30 pm with an optional dinner offered from 6:30 - 7:00 pm. We also hold Sunday evening get-togethers at host homes with dinner included.

Post Confirmation is a great opportunity to stay connected to your friends, enjoy new opportunities and experiences and continue to make an impact on your Jewish and local community! Contact Ira Miller to find out more.

Post Confirmation Service Trip


Post Confirmation students (Grades 11 & 12) will spend an unforgettable weekend in Houston, TX volunteering as that community continues to rebuild from the effects of Hurricane Harvey. The trip will leave Thursday after school and return Sunday night. In between, we will spend at least two full days volunteering, celebrate Shabbat with the local Jewish community, explore Houston and have an amazing time together. This trip is being underwritten by a generous grant from the TOV fund. For more information please contact Ira Miller.

Space is very limited!
