What is Tichon?

Tichon is the name for Synagogue Emanu-El's Religious School program for high schoolers.  It concludes in 12th grade at confirmation.  This program focuses on understanding Jewish movements and practices,
tikkun olam, and Jewish culture and values.

This year Tichon is being taught by Rabbi Ravski. 

Our 10th-12th graders will be following the curriculum "Israel...It's Complicated!"

Speaking from the Bima for Confirmation

Each year, our graduating Tichon students are given the opportunity to speak to the congregation from the bima on the Shabbat morning of their Confirmation.  In an uncensored 3-5 minute speech, these seniors are asked to describe their Synagogue Emanu-El moments and memories that they will take with them in their Jewish "toolbox" as they move on to college.

Hearing how Emanu-El has shaped our young adults in personal, moving terms is a testament to our synagogue community.

You can see the 2020/5780 class's speeches on our website.
