Confirmation has been a KI tradition since the 1850's (Originating in Germany in the early 1800's). Confirmation was created so that teens could actively Confirm their belief in the Jewish tradition. It’s origins still hold true today.
Our 7th to 10th graders participate in our “Quest Noar” Program - a Teen Quest to explore what being a Jewish adult means in a Reform Jewish Community.
