About Us

A Community of Voices

Kol Ami means "voice of my people," and that's exactly who we are. A warm and vibrant community of voices raised in prayer and song, learning and celebration, compassion and support.

A respected congregation serving southern York Region and Northern Toronto (including Thornhill, Richmond Hill and Vaughan), Kol Ami is a family-oriented Reform Jewish community that values lifelong learning, spirited and musical prayer, Tikkun Olam (social action), and a meaningful, community-oriented Jewish life cycle.

We value member involvement on all levels and invite you to join us for a wide range of services and programs including:

  • Shabbat services and Torah study
  • High Holy Day and Festival observance
  • Robust Jewish education for all ages
  • Festive social events year-round
  • Community involvement and outreach
  • Kol Ami's Judaism is dynamic, blending tradition and modernity. Women and men participate equally in services, and we strive for a meaningful balance of Hebrew and English prayer.

Our Community

Kol Ami is a moderately sized dynamic Jewish community; small enough for everyone to meet and create a sense of family, yet big enough to offer a place for everyone.

Our community includes the following:

  • Religious school with hands-on learning for Jewish literacy, identity, culture and values, with a strong Hebrew component.
  • Shabbat education programs that run parallel with Torah study and Shabbat services for full family engagement.
  • Adult education on Jewish traditions, philosophy, and current events, as well as adult B'nai Mitzvah classes.
  • Commitment to Jewish peoplehood (K'lal Yisrael) and the state of Israel
  • Social and Festival activities, including Coffee House/talent show, Purim Carnival and Chanukah party, Family and Friends ski trips, theatre outings, game nights and much more.
  • Social action programs that inspire members of all ages, to help people in need in our community, including support for food banks, women's and homeless shelters, and more.

 


 

At Kol Ami we acknowledge that we are situated on Traditional Territories and Treaty Lands, including those of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nations and other Indigenous Peoples. As Jews and as a community, may we always strive to fulfill our Jewish value of Tzedek Tirdof - the pursuit of justice in our society.
