All post-b’nai mitzvah members of Riverdale Temple are eligible to participate in our High School and Youth Group program. This program combines social activities with Jewish studies that are relevant to the actual life experiences of our teenagers. “Real-time” ethical issues will be discussed in the context of rabbinic opinions and modern Jewish life. The group will also plan social events of their choice (e.g. bowling, apple-picking, etc.) which will be supervised by the High School/Youth Group advisor.
Students who participate in the High School program for a minimum of two years will be eligible to celebrate Confirmation at the end of tenth grade. Students who continue through their senior year will celebrate their graduation during the Confirmation Service.
