Beginning this school year, 2023-2024, Temple Israel's Religious School will join The Center for Jewish Life at Beth David on Beth David’s campus on Sunday mornings from 10 am to 11:30 am. The curriculum engages students grades K-6 through discussions, text-study, prayer, games, music, arts & crafts, Mitzvah days, and, notably, programming for the whole family. Students are divided into age groups and skill levels to accommodate individual learning needs.

Temple Israel Confirmation Program

The Temple Israel Confirmation program is an 18-month program for 8th -11th grade students taught by Rabbi Barbara Goldman-Wartell.
We will explore different ways to understand God, Torah, and Israel so each person can affirm or confirm their connection to some part of the three at the end of the program. We will also be exploring what is involved in being a mensch and the Jewish roots and values of
social justice.

It is an interactive experience that requires us to talk with each other, listen to each other, respect each other, and reflect meaningfully on the session’s topics to benefit from the experience.

We will also be participating in the Bernard and Audre Rapoport L'Taken Social Justice Seminars of the Religious Action Center of our movement in Washington, D.C., in February.

The program will culminate in a Confirmation Service and Ceremony in the spring of 2026.
