The Reform Temple of Forest Hills


Confirmation is a year-long opportunity for 10th graders to expand and explore who they are and how they make decisions as a teen, an American, and a Jew today.

Confirmation program (10th Grade) students are challenged to think about their individual beliefs, and how they can create a meaningful Jewish life in a year-long class meeting with the Rabbi. They build a class community based on trust and clear thinking. The Confirmands are encouraged to challenge each other by asking important questions about Judaism and Jewish values. 

The year includes a class trip to Washington D.C. with a focus on social action and will culminate in a Confirmation Service at the end of the school year. Students exemplify the lessons they have learned through their speeches and their actions. 

Your family will be invited to a meeting with the Rabbi and Educational Leader to begin planning for this wonderful simcha

If you are exploring confirmation, contact Rabbi Mark Kaiserman at (718) 261-2900 or .
