הנה מה טוב ומה נעים שבת אחים גם יחד - Hineh mah tov umah na'im shevet achim gam yachad.
How good and how pleasant it is to be together in community. (Psalm 133)

Kol Ami is a Kehilah Kedoshah - a Holy Community. Our members are a diverse and active group of people who are interested in engaging in Jewish life in many different ways - through learning, prayer, music, food, community, social action, and much more. Some of our members are just beginning their Jewish journey, while others are extremely knowledgeable about ritual, history, and Hebrew. All of us are committed to building a congregation that is inclusive and welcoming of all - from young families to seniors, from married couples to singles, interfaith, LGBTQ+, and families of all backgrounds.

In line with these values, Kol Ami has introduced a Community Commitment model, replacing our traditional flat fee membership dues. There are many benefits to switching to the  Community Commitment model. “Membership dues” are a transaction; CC is voluntary support of your congregation, to the best of your ability. The Community Commitment model speaks to our value of inclusiveness: there is no Dues Relief process; no questions are asked and no explanations need be given for any level of support.

We would love to have you as part of our congregation.

For more information, contact our office at 905-709-2620 or email admin@kolami.ca.

Community Commitment

Strengthening Together: Introducing a Minimum $500 Membership Commitment

As we strive to build a stronger and more vibrant synagogue community, we have carefully considered the financial sustainability necessary to support our shared vision. By introducing a minimum $500 membership commitment, we can ensure the continuity of our valuable services, educational programs and community outreach initiatives.
This decision aligns with our commitment to providing an enriching and spiritually fulfilling experience for all members, while fostering a sense of collective responsibility in supporting our sacred community. We recognize the significance of this change and remain dedicated to transparent communication, offering flexibility to accommodate individual circumstances, and expressing our heartfelt gratitude for your continued support.


Be a Sustainer!

Did you know that it costs approximately $3,600 per family to fully sustain the yearly operations of Kol Ami?

By supporting Kol Ami as a Sustainer, together we can continue to create a thriving community that fosters spritiual growth, connection, and a lasting impact on the lives of our members.

LEARNING PROFILE

Kol Ami is committed to fostering an inclusive environment, helping each child meaningfully participate in Jewish life. The following questions will allow us to cater our program to the needs and abilities of your child.

 
MEDICAL INFORMATION
NUT AWARENESS POLICY

We have a number of students who suffer from severe nut allergies. Even trace amounts of a problem food can cause a life-threatening allergic reaction.  

Please help us maintain a safe community by keeping all nuts and nut products out of the school (peanuts, walnuts, almonds and all other tree nuts). Even those foods labelled with “may contain" or "traces of" in the list of ingredients can be harmful. We appreciate your assistance in making the school safe for every student.

While we strive to be a nut aware facility, we cannot guarantee that your child will not come into contact with products containing nuts. Every reasonable effort will be made to provide a nut aware environment at Kol Ami. Our Staff, members, and students cannot be held responsible. The ultimate responsibility lies with the parents and student to ensure their safety. It is therefore important that if your child has serious allergies, inform us upon registration, and provide any necessary instructions and an EpiPen.
