Congregation Kol Ami
West Hollywood's Reform Synagogue
Congregation Kol Ami builds on the traditions of Judaism while respecting and welcoming everyone: lesbian, gay, bisexual, straight, interfaith couples and our children. Together Rabbi Denise L. Eger and Cantor Mark Saltzman create a hamishe atmosphere, safe for spiritual nurturing and connection.
What distinguishes Congregation Kol Ami is embodied in our name, "Voice of My People."
We place special emphasis on our Shabbat worship. Each Friday night and on the first Shabbat Saturday of the month, our worship services reflect a joyous, uplifting approach to prayer and spirituality.
Services are held at 8:00 p.m. on Friday evenings, except for the first Friday of every month, when we encourage families to attend our 6:45 p.m. services.
Shabbat morning worship is held on the first Saturday each month at 10:00 a.m.
Services are led by Rabbi Denise L. Eger and Cantor Mark Saltzman, using the gender sensitive Mishkan Tefilah. Our services combine both Hebrew and English in a highly accessible liberal service. We use traditional prayer, interpretative prayer and at times guided meditations to express our connection to the Holy.
