What we're about

Interesting in being part of a Jewish community but not in joining a congregation? This is group for you! Singles, couples, families of all kinds-- ALL are welcome! We are the place for people who aren’t *that* religious or sometimes think of themselves as Jew-ish. We look at Jewish traditions in modern ways and each person can decide what is personally meaningful. Looking to feel known, heard and connected? We can't wait to welcome you to MAKOMnj A New Kind of Jewish Community! Visit our website www.MAKOMnj.org for more information.

Torah and Topics: The Environment- What is Our Responsibility?

Discuss current issues that we face in the world and see how Jewish values can guide us during difficult or uncertain times.
