Creative Inclusive Innovative Downtown Community

Makom: Creative Downtown Judaism

Makom – meaning place or space in Hebrew – is a joyous, grassroots community, revitalizing downtown Jewish life in Toronto since 2009. Makom creates an inclusive space, uniquely integrating arts, activism, spirituality, and learning in ways that are accessible to diverse downtown Jews across the spectrum of identity, including many Jewish young adults and young families who were previously uninvolved in Jewish life. Having grown tremendously in the past two-and-a-half years on a shoestring budget, we now seek significant investment in Makom to propel our transition from initial start-up phase to growth stage, enabling us to develop the infrastructure necessary to make Makom a sustainable and stable organization that continues to grow and transform the landscape of downtown Jewish life now and into the future.
