June 3: Friday Night Services

Colourful Hebrew letters spelling Shabbat Shalom

Friday, June 3
@Makom – 402 College St

Free – donations greatly appreciated!

Registration Required by Friday at noon – register below.

Please join us for Makom’s soulful, song-filled Friday night services!

As a diverse and inclusive Jewish community, Makom has mens’, womens’, and mixed (all genders’) seating sections. Female, male, and gender non-binary Jews can lead parts of services, and count in our double minyanim of both 10 Jewish men and 10 Jews regardless of gender. At our services, we follow the full traditional liturgy (prayer text).

Covid Precautions

Because Makom’s storefront is so cozy, we’re imposing a capacity limit so that we can properly distance. The open windows and stand-alone HEPA air purifier unit provide good ventilation.

Everyone age 2 and over must wear a mask at all times while in the building. Adults and age 5+ must wear a surgical mask or respirator (KF94, KN95 or N95); cloth masks are no longer acceptable. We will provide adult- and kid-sized surgical masks for anyone who doesn’t have one. Kids 2-4 should wear whatever mask they will wear consistently and fits best.

Anyone who, within the last 10 days, had symptoms of Covid-19 or a household member with a confirmed or suspected case of Covid-19 must not attend.

Vaccination Policy

Adults, teens, and kids 5+ must be vaccinated to the fullest extent eligible* (including boosters), and must provide an enhanced vaccination certificate** with a QR code upon registration. If you have a valid medical exemption you must provide your verified certificate with a QR code.

*In most cases, the “fullest extent eligible” means:

  • Adults (18+) need boosters, or to have received their second dose within the past four months.
  • Teens (12-17) need boosters, or to have received their second dose within the past seven months.
  • Kids 5-11 need three doses, or to have received their first dose within the past two months.
  • In all cases, 14 days must have passed for a vaccine dose to be counted.

Adults and teens 12+ who were infected with Covid within the past four months, and had received two doses prior to this Covid infection, are exempt from the booster requirement. (This is in accordance with guidance from NACI that people infected with Covid after completing their primary vaccine series but before getting their booster should get their booster three months after infection.) If this applies to you, please upload your enhanced vaccination certificate showing two doses and email us with the date your symptoms began (or your positive test date if you were asymptomatic).

If you have questions about our policies, please contact us.

**You must provide your enhanced vaccination certificate with a valid QR code. You can download your proof of vaccination from the Ontario website here. If you were vaccinated outside Ontario, you can obtain an Ontario certificate by first reporting your vaccination information to your local public health unit. For Toronto residents, that form is here.
