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 a church in Fort Mill at 7 PM (please e-mail us at yorksynagogue@gmail.com for location).

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Due to the current Covid surge, and in an abundance of caution, the TKA Board has decided to switch to virtual Friday night Shabbat services for the month of January and February. It is our hope to resume in-person services in March- please check back for updates! The bar mitzvah scheduled for Jan 22nd will proceed in-person.

***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. ***

Covid safety: Per CDC guidelines, masks are required for everyone over age 2 at all services


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.
