MAKOMnj is a new Jewish community offering warm, accessible and meaningful Jewish experiences that help everyone feel connected and find meaning in their own way. We are not bound by a particular location. We meet in homes, event spaces, and other interesting venues in and around Morris and Essex Counties. Based on a fee for service model we have suggested donation amounts for our events rather than formal dues.

 

Our community offers opportunities to enjoy things we like to do in our secular lives and put a Jewish frame around them.  Saturday morning walks, Shabbat dinner together, learn to bake challah, wine tasting for adults.  MAKOMnj will do community service work and will create opportunities for learning for kids and adults.  Visit our website, MAKOMnj.org for events, dates and locations.

 

The High Holy Days are around the corner.  We have seats for everyone! Come and be a part of MAKOMnj.  Looking for a place to educate your kids?  Check out MAKOMnj’s unique learning program.  For more information visit our website, MAKOMnj.org

 

Why MAKOMnj? American Jews are searching for connection to Jewish community, to Jewish heritage, and to a sense of genuine belonging. Jews of today are looking for community that is open and welcoming, where Judaism feels authentic and joyful. Many Jewish individuals and families are looking for a community that is non-denominational and accepting of all different levels of observance and participation.  MAKOMnj offers all of this and more!

 

“I created MAKOMnj because I want to offer individuals and families and exciting entry into Jewish life,” said Rabbi Ellie Miller, founder of MAKOMnj.  “Today, people like to have choices and options in all aspects of their lives.  Communities like MAKOMnj are popping up around the country, offering Jewish individuals and families another option for finding a comfortable fit into the Jewish community.”
