Homepage photoKol 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 7 PM in the Historic Sanctuary of Unity Presbyterian, 303 Tom Hall Street, Fort Mill, SC.  We invite you to add your voice to our congregation!

SHABBATONS COMING TO YORK COUNTY!

Temple Kol Ami is thrilled that we have been awarded a 2016 Impact and Innovation Fund grant by the Jewish Federation of Greater Charlotte. With this grant, TKA will be partnering with the Institute of Southern Jewish Life’s Rabbi on the Road program to bring quarterly rabbinic visits to York County. Each “Shabbaton” will consist of Friday night service, Torah study and cultural programming/havdalah as well as religious school education. The Shabbaton Aug 26-28 was a huge success! Please check back for details of upcoming Shabbaton soon!
