West Hollywood Temple Youth (WEHOTY) is Congregation Kol Ami’s teen youth program. It promises to be a really fun venture that will enhance the Jewish aspects of Kol Ami’s teens’ lives and enable them to get to know and create friendships with other Jewish youth at Kol Ami and throughout the city.
WEHOTY gives them the opportunity to socialize with their Jewish peers through fun activities like bowling, roller skating and laser tag; and it also gives them the chance to get involved philanthropically and enable them to give back to the community, all done through a Jewish lens.
All temple youth who are of and post Bar and Bat Mitzvah age, usually 7th grade and beyond, are invited to join WEHOTY.
Our most recent event was a great day at Six Flags Magic Mountian on Saturday Oct. 16 2010.
Sabrina Eisenstadt is WEHOTY’s advisor. She’s been teaching at Kol Ami's Religious School for the past six years and had many of the teens as her students. She grew up very involved with her own synagogue’s youth group in St. Paul, MN. It provided her with lasting friendships that she counts on to this day and has helped her shape and take pride in her Jewish identity. These are qualities that she aims to infuse into Congregation Kol Ami’s WEHOTY.
