Shabbat Dinner

On the 3rd Friday of the month, get to know the MAKOMnj community in a more intimate way at a casual potluck Shabbat dinner.

Dinner is called for 6:30 pm. We begin with the traditional Shabbat blessings and then a delicious meal!

MAKOMnj will cook the chicken and bake the challah.

You bring a salad, side dish or dessert.  Be creative and be sure to be nut free.​

Shabbat Morning Walks

Start the morning by heading into one of our beautiful local parks or by meeting up at a point on Patriots Path. Spend time appreciating the relaxing and meditative qualities of nature.  Our walks will not be strenuous and will be good for everyone who enjoys walking.  Beginning in July we will be walking together with Bethel AME Church.  This will be a wonderful way to get to know members of another local faith community.


Walks begin at 9:00 am
