Congrats Jewish Confirmation Candidates!

Congratulations to all the Confirmation kids at the Congregation Shir Ha-Ma'alot community! My coworker, Eric, ask me to make these cookies for 23 young adults who will be celebrating their confirmation at the Family Shabbat Service with a Young Choir and Band tonight in Irvine. Afterwards they will get to dive into these potted sugar cookies in the shape of a hexagram, the Star of David. Due to lack of structural support in the cookie, I could not stick the stick into the bottom point of the cookie without breaking the cookie, so I had to stick it in the inner vertex point of the star, and have the star be tilted. These sugar cookies have royal icing on top to paint in the star and to spell out each of the candidate's names. Although less widespread, Confirmation is the coming of age ritual when a child is 16 or 18. They often replace the bar and bat mitzvah with this ceremony, and takes these young adults further in their Jewish education. So congratulations kids, I know all your parents and family are very proud!

Fun facts on the Star of David:
- In alchemy, the upright triangle represents fire, and the upside-down triangle is the symbol for water. Together they symbolize the unity of opposites.
- It's also a represents the 6-pointed star on the shield that David carried to battle Goliath.
- The number 6 represents balance and beauty.

Once again, congratulations to the newly confirmed! Here are their names:
Sam, Rachel B., David, Rachel C., Rex, Joseph, Jacob, Diane, Mai, Mackenzie, Rachel H., Sarah, Kyle, Sydney, Corey, Richard, Jessy, Mallory, Allison, Brooke, Cori, Michael, and Hannah!
