Welcome to Temple Kol Ami


Kol Ami means “All My People”. Temple Kol Ami of Fort Mill, SC is a Reform synagogue that strives to be a voice for the diverse Jewish community of Greater York County, SC and South Charlotte, welcoming families and individuals from all walks of Jewish life. We are a warm and inclusive congregation comprised of Jews from more traditional backgrounds, interfaith couples and families as well as those who may be rediscovering their  faith.  As a community we celebrate and embrace the joys of Judaism through ritual, culture and religious education. We are proud of our thriving Religious School, the largest in York County!

Join us for Shabbat service the first and third Friday of every month at Philadelphia United Methodist Church, 1691 Highway 160 West, Fort Mill, SC at 7 PM. We invite you to add your voice to our congregation!

***PLEASE NOTE: Although we generally follow the 1st/3rd Friday schedule, there may occasionally be a change to the Shabbat service schedule.  Please carefully check our Temple calendar for dates of upcoming Shabbat services. Service schedule for February is as follows:  Feb 7, Feb 21, Feb 29 (Saturday Torah service)***

We are growing!  Our religious school has moved to Walnut Grove Christian School!  Our new religious school address is: 1036 Maxwell Mill Road, Fort Mill, SC 29708



Temple Kol Ami Welcomes Joe Buchanan
Artist-in-residence, weekend March 20-22

Temple Kol Ami is thrilled to welcome musician Joe Buchanan for an artist-in-residence weekend March 20-22! Joe, a Jew by choice, is a rising star in the Judaic music scene and describes his music as Americana with a Jewish soul. He will lead us in a musical Kabbalat Shabbat service (along with Charlotte’s favorite band The Ruach) and perform a concert of his original music on Saturday night. Please check our calendar for locations and times. You don’t want to miss this incredibly talented and inspiring artist!

This event is brought to you for FREE with a grant from the Jewish Federation of Greater Charlotte.


MEET OUR RABBI, ANA BONNHEIM

Rabbi bonheimTemple Kol Ami was thrilled to welcome Rabbi Ana Bonnheim to our pulpit in January 2017 to provide rabbinic leadership for the Greater York County/South Charlotte Jewish community. Rabbi Bonnheim has previously served as Associate Director of the URJ Greene Family Camp in Dallas, TX and Rabbi for Temple Beth Emeth in Sherman, TX. She moved to the area with her husband Rabbi Asher Knight, senior rabbi at Temple Beth El, and two young sons. She will be leading us in Kabbalat Shabbat services as well as an occasional Saturday morning Torah service (please keep an eye on the calendar). For an honorarium, she is available for life cycle events such as weddings, funerals, unveilings, baby namings and b’nai mitzvah. Rabbi Bonnheim is warm, energetic and engaging, and dedicated to Jewish learning as well as instilling a Jewish identity in our next generation. Temple Kol Ami  looks forward to continuing to grow under her teaching and guidance.
