New Program! In this safe and creative space we will confront and engage with tough issues, topics and questions that 9th graders grapple with on a daily basis.

Confirmation: Grade 10

Confirmation provides an ideal setting for students to explore their Judaism. Through a year loosely characterized as “T.G.I.C. (Torah, God, Israel, Confirmation),” sophomores will discuss some of the most central, relevant and enduring topics related to Jewish identity. The year includes both an opening retreat in Atlanta as well as a class trip to New York in the spring, and culminates with a special Confirmation service in May.
