What we're about

Malkhut: a Progressive Jewish Spiritual community in Western Queens

Come be a part of a new effort to build a progressive Jewish spiritual community in Western Queens (LIC, Astoria, Jackson Heights, Sunnyside, Woodside) that transforms Jewish people and the world by creating connections to each other, to the One and to our greater community. We celebrate Jewish life through ecstatic, musical, and contemplative prayer, mindfulness practice through a Jewish lens, study of Jewish sources, and social justice work.

Our goal is to create authentic Jewish experiences and a caring and inclusive community especially for young Jewish adults. We welcome Jewish individuals of all ages, seekers and fellow travelers of all faith backgrounds, families, interfaith couples, Jews of color, and LGBTQ folks to add their threads to the communal fabric we are weaving together.

Come learn together about Justice and Judaism through traditional and contemporary texts. This ongoing Shabbat afternoon discussion group meets at Malkhut Members Deva Estin and Sam's Guzik's house. When we meet, we'll unpack the weekly Torah portion, putting it into conversation with traditional and contemporary texts connecting our traditional teachings about Justice to the larger realities of our American context.
