  • The 4 years that I went to Kol Ami were some of the most traumatic of my life.
    Due to the divorce of my parents, I went through a little bit of a "goth" faze.
    This lead to open mocking by stereotypical, preppy, spoiled, white girls.
    Having not a single friend because I didn't like dress the same or enjoy hip-hop music seemed a bit drastic.
    The teachers did nothing.
    Also, since the only goal of going to Hebrew School was to get you ready for you Bar/Bat Mitzvah, at least 2/3 of or time was spent learning the Hebrew language.
    However, there was no emphasis place on comprehension. As long as you can properly pronounce your Torah portion no one will notice. The sentiment seemed to be, that you'll only ever need to know how to speak the language again 4 holidays a year.
    In fact my class of 18 quickly dropped to 6 after everyone turned 13.
    At which point the focus changed to why Judaism is a more superior religion to all others. The change of focus towards anti-religious freedom brain washing made me uneasy. I stopped going to Temple Kol Ami, after it was suggested that my gothic make-up and black dresses were inappropriate for Friday night Shabbat services, (which I attended alone every week), and that perhaps I should only come on the high holy days. I was at the same time told my presence at Hebrew High School was no longer required and therefor I should not continue on and go to Israel as I had intended to do.
    This contributed directly to a complete crisis of faith, and a hatred for organized religion that continues on to this day.
    I still can read Hebrew perfectly, I still have little clue what I'm saying :)
    Last year my sister was Bat Mitzvahed.
    She said all the other girls talked about was "what they were going to get", and "how much their parents were spending on their parties." She didn't have the hurdle of going through a goth faze like me, however, she found she had little with the materialistic mean girls.
