“Makom made me realize that life is worth fighting for! It was a light in the deep darkness.” -Makom member
The tagline for Makom is “From Darkness To Light,” which is a reference to “Acheinu Kol Beis Yisrael,” a song about Jews who are in trouble, trapped, and drowning and need our help. The name of God which is invoked in the song is “HaMakom,” – the Omnipresent.
Makom takes our members from the darkness of their lived Jewish experiences and helps them connect to a supportive community of peers. At Makom our members can find a Judaism and Jewish communities full of light and positivity by separating dysfunction and toxic people from religion and the Orthodox community.
