Makom Community is a Jewish enrichment center that creates family-centered Jewish experiences where parents are empowered to build a Jewish life that is personally meaningful for their family, where the noise of children is welcome, and where it is safe for parents to learn alongside children. We cultivate fluency and comfort in Jewish tradition through our inspirational and cutting-edge youth and family experiences. Not only is Makom Community a Jewish community committed to creating a more just world, we’re also committed to building a Jewish community that is truly open to anyone who wishes to engage with Jewish traditions alongside their family. Makom Community provides daily, high-quality afterschool care and Jewish education for children ages 4-11. Makom Community enrolls students in Pre-K through 5th grade. Each student’s learning is project-based and child-led. Learning is immersive and applied daily in our communal setting. Shabbat is a highlight of every week at Makom. Each Friday, families are invited to stay for a family celebration of Shabbat. Our students prepare food and learning to share. We’ll sing, dance, eat together, and enjoy each other’s company!
