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!

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

***PLEASE NOTE: Although we generally follow the 1st/3rd Friday schedule, there may occasionally be a change to the Shabbat service schedule. In the month of April, there are no Friday night Shabbat services. There is a Saturday morning service on April 6, and the 3rd Friday in April corresponds to the first night of Passover. Please carefully check our Temple calendar for dates of upcoming Shabbat services.***

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 joining TKA for Kabbalat Shabbat services on January 18, March 1 and May 3, 2019. She will also lead us in a Saturday morning Torah service on April 6 (in lieu of April 5 service). Additionally, Rabbi Bonnheim will be visiting with our religious school kids to enhance their Jewish education on the following dates:  Feb 3 and March 31, 2019. 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 is so excited to welcome her to our congregation and we look forward to continuing to grow under her teaching and guidance. Baruch haba, Rabbi Bonnheim!
