The beginning of a child’s Jewish education is a celebration for the entire community. A ceremony is held on Simchat Torah eve, when the congregation gathers to celebrate the cycle of reading the Torah each year, to celebrate our children’s entry into formal Jewish education. This usually occurs in the year the children are in kindergarten.



Confirmation ClassTenth grade at Kol Ami is a special year during which the class studies with our Rabbis. At the end of the year our youngsters celebrate a public affirmation of theircommitment to live as Jews. The entire class leads the congregation in worship on Shavuot, the festival that marks the receiving of the Torah by Moses at Sinai. Confirmation does not mark the end of religious school, but is a step along the way toward graduation from Kol Ami High School in twelfth grade.
