Project Makom, an initiative of Jew in the City, helps former or questioning charedi Jews find their place in Orthodoxy. While we believe that there are numerous valid paths within Orthodox Judaism, not all observant Jews are born into a community which fits them. There are some Modern Orthodox Jews who choose to move to the right, but for some Charedi Jews who want to transition to a more open observant community, they face hurdles that prevent them from doing so (whether cultural, educational, or simply feeling unwelcomed). Some of these people end up leaving religious life altogether. Project Makom gives these individuals another option.
