Kol Ami Teens

Kol Ami is a place where teens stay involved in Judaism long after becoming Bar and Bat Mitzvah!

Our youth group TAKAY ("Temple Association of Kol Ami Youth") is one of the most active and successful Jewish youth programs the Toronto area. Affiliated with NFTY, the North American Reform Jewish Youth Movement, these Grade 8-12 teens get together regularly to have fun, to participate in programs together, and to engage in social action. They elect their own teen board, and plan programs of all kinds for each other throughout the year.

Kol Ami's junior youth groups bring together kids in the lower grades for fun events and opportunities to be together!

Madrichim (Student Teachers) and Teen Learning

Every Shabbat morning, our teens fill the synagogue with their energy and excitement. Part of their time is spent as Madrichim (Assistant Teachers), inspiring and aiding younger students in the classrooms. They are role models and "Jewish Super Heroes" to the children who look up to them.

The other part of their time is spent actively engaged in learning about Judaism, in ways that are relevant to teen life.

What are my beliefs about Judaism and about God?
What do I struggle with and where can I turn for answers?

Our teens know that it is OK as Jews to "wrestle" with their own beliefs, and that lifelong learning is the hallmark of adult Jewish life.
