MAKOMnj is a brand new, independent Jewish community.  We are the place for people who aren’t *that* religious or sometimes think of themselves as Jew-ish.  We offer warm, accessible and meaningful experiences that help everyone feel connected and find meaning in their own way. Spending time with MAKOMnj just feels good. 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. We are so excited to get started! Welcome to MAKOMnj. We’re glad you’re here.


Makom is pronounced mah-KOHM. In Hebrew it means “place.” It is also another name for God.


MAKOMnj is the place where we take the time to get to know one another and recognize the God-like qualities and goodness within each person.


Our Vision: MAKOMnj is a joyful Jewish community where all are welcome!


Our Mission: MAKOMnj is the place where Jewish life is celebrated, relationships are nurtured, learning is engaging, accessible and enjoyable for people of all ages and all abilities, prayer is meaningful and inspiring, everyone is valued, we do good deeds, and help others.
