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-day field trips, community service opportunities, social events, and evening programs.

Grade 8

Experiences include participating in interfaith service projects, spending a meaningful day visiting D.C. memorials, helping run our Temple Purim Carnival, and much more. Our 8th graders have two weekend retreats as well as regular Tuesday night programs featuring authors, movies, special programs, and more.

Grade 9

The highlight of the 9th-grade year are the two 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, a D.C. scavenger hunt, and other special events. Regular weeknight programming complements the weekend activities, trips, and retreats
