HIGH HOLY DAYS 2023/5784
Welcome to the High Holy Days at MakomNY. Celebrate the joy and holiness of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur with us.
The MakomNY community welcomes those from all backgrounds to share the High Holy Days with us. We have intentionally created a place to help meet the emerging and changing needs of our diverse Jewish community.
The High Holy Day Experience at MakomNY includes services, adult learning, quiet reflection, thoughtful discussion and spiritual flourishing, special family activities, mitzvah projects and more. Our High Holy Day Services include Hebrew prayers with transliteration as well as beautiful spiritual readings, meditations and insights in English. It is important to us that all are able to follow and participate in the way they find comfortable and fulfilling.
All services and programs (unless otherwise noted) will be held in-person at the Bethpage Worship Center, 600 Broadway, Bethpage.
Masks are optional; vaccinations and boosters are preferred.

High Holy Day Mitzvah Projects
RISE AGAINST HUNGER - PACKING MEALS
On this day as we ask for forgiveness, and as many of us choose to cleanse our bodies and our souls as we fast for the day, we take some time to think about those in our community who are in need.
We will once again make 10,000 meals in partnership with RISE AGAINST HUNGER. All are welcome to join us (children ages 6 and older accompanied by an adult), but this will fill up, so sign up early!
RUDMAN FOOD PANTRY - COLLECTIONS
As in years past, we continue to support the Rudman Family Food Pantry at the Mid-Island Y-JCC. There will be bags available on Rosh Hashanah, and we ask that you bring them back on Yom Kippur filled with your donations.
As a different model for Jewish community, one that does not have a traditional dues or membership model, we rely on the support of our participants to offer the
high-quality programming and services that you expect from MakomNY.
All of those who choose to support MakomNY with a minimum monthly donation as part of our 'Shorashim Donation Program' are able to attend High Holy Day Services at No Additional Fee.
WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO ENROLL NOW IN OUR MONTHLY SHORASHIM DONATION PROGRAM, AND WE WILL SEND YOU A SEPARATE LINK TO MAKE YOUR HIGH HOLY DAY RESERVATION (AT NO ADDITIONAL FEE).

Please know, If you are not able to become one of our Shorashim donors at this time, and solely want to reserve your space for the MakomNY High Holy Day Services and Programs, we would love to have you.
