What is confirmation?

Just, as we mark the beginning of Religious School with Consecration, we observe the end of formal classes with Confirmation. For nearly 200 years progressive Jewish congregations have marked the festival of Shavuot, which comes towards the end of the school year, with this group ceremony of affirmation. Shavuot recalls the revelation at Sinai, so in the season of Shavuot each year (generally in May) a new generation “confirms” our people’s covenant with God through the Confirmation ceremony.
