Makom Creative Downtown Judaism

Makom: Creative Downtown Judaism is a Toronto community fusing Jewish tradition and progressive values since 2009.

Through joyous spirituality, stimulating learning, and arts and culture programming, Makom creates inclusive space that inspires diverse participants to explore together how Judaism can meaningfully enrich our lives.

We offer a twice-a-week afterschool program for children JK-Grade 5 focused on offering high-quality, inclusive, and pluralistic Hebrew language and Jewish education. We are based out of TDSB schools in three neighborhoods around Toronto (the Annex, Wychwood, and Kensington Market).

Our students come from a wide range of backgrounds, including interfaith, intercultural and LGBTQ+ families, and we embrace all approaches to Judaism.
