Makom: Creative Downtown Judaism is a Toronto community fusing Jewish tradition and progressive values since 2009.
Through joyous spirituality, stimulating learning, and arts and culture programming, Makom creates inclusive space that inspires diverse participants to explore together how Judaism can meaningfully enrich our lives.
Makom’s programming includes soulful and song-filled Friday night and holiday services, Jewish meditation, adult education classes, family activities, and arts and culture experiences. Makom Afterschool is a Hebrew-immersion and Jewish studies program for children in JK through Grade 4, now offered in three downtown neighbourhoods. Makom ATID is our innovative approach to serious Jewish and Hebrew learning and preparation for Bar/Bat Mitzvah for students in grades 5-8.
