Confirmation Young Jewish Adults
The Tichon program is designed to provide an avenue of advanced learning for students who have completed their B'nai Mitzvah studies. In addition to a Jewish learning environment, this program provides our teens an opportunity for socialization at Temple Menorah and with a peer group from synagogues throughout the South Bay, as well as those in the greater Los Angeles area.

Through our newly designed program, students will being to explore issues and concepts as they relate to their own lives and blend discussions with interactive projects. Content to be covered in classes includes, but is not limited to, Israel, comparative religion, comparative Judaism, activism, and conversational Hebrew. We strive to provide our students with the opportunity to explore issues of interest and relate them to their lives today.

Students study with our Rabbi and another teacher relating these issues to modern life. The year culminates on Shavuot with a beautiful Confirmation service and celebration.
