Youth Groups

Kol Ami's youth program is strong and active! Our goal is to provide social programming and community for kids from birth through graduation.


Senior Youth Group

The Temple Association of Kol Ami Youth (TAKAY) is a strong and active branch of Kol Ami. Open to everyone in Grades 8 through 12, we have a long history of being one of the largest and most-active Jewish youth groups in the Greater Toronto Area.

While in TAKAY we support our synagogue, our community, and our world with a deep focus on Israel.

We are affiliated with the North American Federation of Temple Youth - Northeast Lakes Region, also called NFTY-NEL. TAKAY is led by a dedicated Executive Board of officers who are elected in the spring of each year. Our monthly activities include: special youth group-led Shabbat services, programs on social action, Israel, leadership, and of course, social events and trips!

For more information on our programs, events and more, please e-mail our advisor, Aron Katz.


Junior Youth Group

Our "TICKY" junior youth groups are open to everyone in Grades 3-7. These events are a great way to introduce our pre-teens to youth group life! The course of the year’s events may include bowling, movie nights, social action projects, and community-building activities.
