At CBI, Confirmation is a 3-year program for post-b’nai mitzvah students in 8th through 10th grade, meeting on Sunday mornings. This class builds on the foundation of earlier learning and is structured to encourage discussion, active learning, and critical thinking on a number of subjects and themes such as ethics and social justice, Jewish history and observance, gender, anti-semitism, comparative religion, Israel and Palestine, and much more.

From midrash to mussar, from holidays to halacha, from pop culture to Jews in the news, Confirmation students continue their Jewish education, delve deeper into various topics, and grow into both role models for younger students and engaged members of the congregation.
