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.
High Holy Day programming at MakomNY includes services, adult learning, quiet reflection, thoughtful discussion and spiritual flourishing, special family activities 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.

High Holy Day Mitzvah Projects
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.
This year, we offer several opportunities to participate in Mitzvah Projects, both for people who are in-person as well as virtual.
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. If you will be fully virtually, you can pick up your bag in Bethpage or at Rabbi Bravo's home in Woodbury (by appointment please).
This year, we are launching a new mitzvah project: #Makom Rallies for Rebecca. As many of you know, our own Rebecca Koltun, daughter of Scott and Audrey Koltun, was in a traumatic accident in March that left her as a quadriplegic. She is making tremendous progress, yet Rebecca and her family need all of our continuing support. To read more about Rebecca's story, please click here. We have created a few opportunities to help support Rebecca and her family, and with a little help from Rebecca, ways to help other individuals like Rebecca who are in acute rehabilitation facilities.

As a new 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.
