While Bar/ Bat Mitzvah marks a personal status in Judaism with an emphasis on the individual, Confirmation marks the completion of a course of study as a class, with a group celebration. Confirmation is celebrated each year near Shavuot with participation in the Main Sanctuary service by the class and sponsorship of a congregational luncheon. Students are assigned parts in the service, teach a lesson to the congregation, and “confirm” their allegiance to Temple Beth Hillel-Beth El and the Jewish People.

Confirmation Class meets weekly during High School. Rabbi Witkovsky and Hazzan Rosner take different responsibilities in the class. Our students meet separately with our rabbi while Adath Israel’s students meet with their rabbi. Day school, LMAHH (Lower Merion Area Hebrew High School) and Gratz students who are interested in participating in Confirmation will set-up special meetings with the rabbis outside of these hours.

Members of the Confirmation Class travel to Israel for two weeks each December, together with students from Confirmation Classes of other local synagogues.
