Confirmation has been part of the HEA tradition for many years. It is integrated into the Mile Chai All-Access Youth Pass. 

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.  

The year-long class includes special sessions with Rabbi Gruenwald while building on their direct relationship with the HEA clergy.  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.
