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!
***PLEASE NOTE: During the summer, as many of our congregants scatter due to vacations, there are no Friday night services at TKA. Our next service will be August 25th when Rabbi Aft joins us for a Shabbaton weekend. We wish everyone a safe and wonderful summer break!***

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 has recently 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 once a month for Friday night Shabbat service on the following dates for the rest of 2017: Sept 8, Oct 13, Nov 3, Dec 15. 2018 dates TBA. 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!

Temple Kol Ami is excited to share the news that we have been awarded a grant from the Jewish Federation of Greater Charlotte Impact and Innovation Fund for the second year in a row.  With this funding, we will continue our  Shabbaton program which was so well-received last year. We are excited  to bring a rabbi to York County for weekends of prayer, study, cultural programming and religious school education on a quarterly basis. Our gratitude  goes out to the Federation for this great gift to the Jewish community of York County, and their support of this very important project. Our first Shabbaton in March was a phenomenal success! Mark your calendars for August 25-27th when Rabbi Bruce Aft returns for our next Shabbaton. Please check our calendar for more details. Future Shabbaton dates are Oct 27-29 and Dec 8-10. All events related to the Shabbaton are FREE and open to the public.
