Confirmation (Grade 10)

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.


New York City Trip

From the Lower East Side to the Upper West Side, Confirmands will experience “Jewish New York” with our clergy and staff.

Students will watch a Broadway play, tour the Lower East Side, attend Shabbat services at a historic New York Reform synagogue, enjoy dinner in Times Square, eat at a New York City deli, and see the 9/11 Memorial and Museum.
