Confirmation is an annual life cycle event. It occurs in conjunction with the holiday of Shavuot and the giving of the ten commandments. It is a time when teenagers confirm their personal commitment within the Jewish community. This program and culminating ceremony has always been important at KI. The annual pictures in our hallway and yearbooks exemplify a year of study, activity, and involvement at Keneseth Israel. Religious school life starts when students are very young and their Confirmation is celebrated with pageantry at Shavuot.
