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.

Given the current crisis, we’re offering most of these public programs for FREE. If you’re able to help support Makom, please donate now.
If you have any ideas for other online events you’d like to help make happen, please email Rabbi Aaron.
In Fall 2020 we launched Makom Afterschool Flex: online Hebrew and Jewish studies tutoring for children in JK through Grade 5. For students in grades 6-8, Makom ATID is our innovative approach to serious Jewish and Hebrew learning and preparation for Bar/Bat Mitzvah.
Makom’s Caring Committee, spearheaded by Makom board member Tae Hart, was set up to fulfill the mitzvah of bikkur holim (visiting the ill – virtually) and to deliver supplies to those in isolation. This is a great opportunity to help others and create community.
We’ve had a fabulous response to our call for volunteers and want to thank everyone who has signed up during this challenging time. We’re happily accepting more volunteers; you can sign up here.
We also want to remind you that we’re here to help, from checking in on you via a phone or video call, or assisting you to purchase food or supplies. Please let us know how someone from the Caring Committee can help you, by signing up here.
Please consider giving back to Makom by making a donation or becoming a Makom Member today! We can’t provide meaningful Jewish experiences without your support. Please give generously so we can keep enriching your life with spirituality, learning and culture.
