MakomNY was founded as a New Model for Jewish Community, one with exceptional programming, yet without traditional membership dues or building fund.
MakomNY has brought together many people in the community looking for meaningful, relevant Jewish experiences. While people find us and engage for various reasons, we are united by our roots and in our hopes for a better future.
We offer the highest level programming and inspiring worship. Our Model enables per-program-donations, and offers an accessible monthly donation program that enables us to exist and meet the growing, changing and emerging needs of our community.
