Youth Programs


Ohef Sholom Temple Youth (OSTY) provides an engaging, inclusive venue for teens of Ohef Sholom Temple to meet, participate in and practice our faith. Teens become involved in religious programming, the principles of Tikkun Olam, and are empowered to take on projects in which he/she/ze/they are passionate about. Ohef Sholom Temple provides up to one or two advisors for guidance as an invaluable resource for our teens in the program.


Ohef Sholom Temple Youth (OSTY) is for 8th-12th graders while JOSTY is for 6th-7th graders.

Teen Lounge

OST’s second floor has comfy couches, tables to work, a Wii, big-screen TV and a mini-fridge. It’s a safe space to hang out, work on homework, talk between classes and host events.


OSTY and JOSTY has held events such as Friendsgiving, Lock-ins, Purim Carnival, making lunches for the OST Soup Kitchen, collecting food for the needy, celebrating Israeli culture and each other.
