Confirmation —

Confirmation has been part of the HEA tradition for many years. It is integrated into the Chai School program for 8th - 10th Grade.

At the HEA, our 10th grade students follow in the footsteps of multiple generations as they explore another step on their Jewish learning ladder. Confirmation is not the end of Jewish education, instead, it is an affirmation that they will continue on with their Jewish education.

Confirmation is taught by both Rabbi Gruenwald & Rabbi Shulman. Guided discussions mixed with Torah study on topics that they haven't broached enrich the learning process. In June, the class culminates with ceremony and joy at Confirmation for our families.

This year, our 5783 Cohort will use the theme of Confirmation, the Next Step in Your Jewish Journey. The 10 sessions will have a variety of topics related to Jewish Ethics, Mentorship, Comparative Religions and Comparative Jewish Denominations. 

Our Confirmation Ceremony is scheduled for Friday, June 2nd, 2023 with a Shabbat Dinner celebration.
