Welcome to Temple Kol Ami
IMPORTANT!! TKA Cancellations!!!
It is with an abundance of caution and the utmost concern for the welfare of our congregation that the Executive Board of TKA has made the difficult decision to cancel all in-person Temple events indefinitely. This includes all Shabbat services, Book Club and Sunday school. We will monitor the COVID-19 situation closely and notify everyone once we feel it is safe to resume activities.
VIRTUAL ALTERNATIVE EVENTS ARE AVAILABLE – PLEASE SEE OUR CALENDAR!!!
In the meantime, sending everyone our sincerest wishes for your good health and safety.
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 especially during the summer months. Please carefully check our Temple calendar for dates of upcoming Shabbat services. ***
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
MEET OUR RABBI, ANA BONNHEIM
Temple 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.
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 5th year in a row. With this funding, we will continue to build our Religious School through an enhanced B’nei Mitzvah program. We also intend to use these funds to bring Jewish cultural programming to the community. TKA is so grateful to the JFGC for their continued support of our congregation as well as the Greater York County Jewish community. Please support the Jewish Federation of Greater Charlotte!
