Makom Membership Form

Makom is a Jewish community rooted in collective liberation, the lands we live on, and a wellspring of Jewish traditions. We are anti-Zionist and boldly led by queer and trans people. All Jewish people and beloveds are welcome to join in creating spaces for ritual and practice, joy and celebration, mutual support, and learning.

Who is eligible to be a member?
