For the first time, Beth Israel is offering Post Confirmation to 10th-12th graders. This program will meet once a month in the Rabbi’s study, where students will discuss contemporary Jewish issues such as the Israel-Palestinian situation; Anti-Semitism on college campuses and other burning Jewish topics. This program meets at 7 p.m. Wednesday evenings throughout the year. A light dinner is provided.
Our Religious School will have a Post-Confirmation class for our 10th through 12th graders beginning in September 2013. This class is an exciting mix of seminar-style classes, mitzvah projects, and cultural opportunities. This program aims to integrate the many ways our teens are involved in Jewish life to build and sustain a true community among this age group.
Rabbi Samuels will meet with the students seven times throughout the year and will lead the class through these activities:
· Discussions on current Jewish/Israel news
· Informal Hand-On Education
· Exploration of God and Spirituality
· Jewish Values and Text Presented with Practical Applications
· Building Teen Community within our Congregation
· Building Teen Community with other Reform Jewish teens
· Experiential Learning through Hands-On Projects
The class will meet on selected Wednesdays from 6-7:30.
For further information about the class please contact Rabbi Samuels at 360-733-8890.
