Our 2018-19 Confirmation class is taught by Rabbi Sharon Mars and will meet every other Thursday evening from 6:30 to 8:00 PM for 10 sessions, beginning in January 2019.  Meeting location TBD.

Class Dates: January 10, 24, February 7, 21, March 7, 28, April 11, 25, May 16, 30.

Confirmation rehearsal will be on June 6 at the JCC.  Confirmation ceremony will take place during Erev Shabbat services on June 7, 2019.

Tuition is $180 for the Confirmation Class.

If you are participating in the Gesher High School program ($425), the Confirmation Class tuition is only $75.

The Confirmation class has historically taken a trip with the Rabbi as part of Confirmation. This trip is generously subsidized by the Shnider Fund of the Temple Israel Foundation. This year's June Confirmation trip is to Cincinnati to visit Hebrew Union College, the Underground Railway Museum, and the Plum Street Temple.  Fun is also on the docket! Any additional costs would be nominal (souvenirs, lunch, etc.)


Jewish education should be scaffolding with which one can build his or her Jewish identity over a lifetime. At The Religious School we include both the what’s and how-to’s of Jewish living that form the planks of the scaffolding as well as the poles that encourage lifelong Jewish learning and commitment to the Jewish people.

Our Religious School (K-7) takes place on Sunday mornings from 9:00 AM to 11:30 AM.  We are temporarily located at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Columbus (1125 College Ave.) while Temple Israel renovates its new permanent home on East Broad (due to be finished in 2019.)

Children in grades 3-6 also participate in a weekday Hebrew School component.  Hebrew School is held on Tuesdays from 4:00-6:00 PM at two convenient locations: Congregation Agudas Achim in Bexley and at CJDS in New Albany.

We have all new Teen Programming for students in 7th through 12th grades!  See the information below for more details.
