Shabbat Services

Join us for soulful, song-filled Shabbat services and Torah teachings! We meet every other week, with one Friday night service and one Shabbat morning service every month.

Due to Covid-19 capacity limits, we currently require advance signups to attend our Shabbat services. Register for our next service here.

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, read and be called up to the Torah, and count in our double minyanim of both 10 Jewish men and 10 Jews regardless of gender. Makom services follow the full traditional liturgy (prayer text).

Covid Precautions for Indoor Services

Because Makom’s storefront is so cozy, we’re introducing a strict capacity limit for Friday night, and renting a much larger space for Shabbat morning, so that we can properly distance.

Additionally, the stand-alone HEPA air purifier unit, together with open windows or the HVAC system, provide good ventilation.

Everyone age 2 and over must wear a mask at all times while in the building. Adults and kids age 5+ must wear 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.
