Makom Shalom is the Hebrew term for a place of peace, and aptly describes our congregation. We are a welcoming community, embracing Jews and non-Jews of every color, sexual orientation, and belief. We fly no national flags and welcome divergent views on the challenging issues of our time. We can (and often do) disagree on issues -- and yet we still love, embrace and respect each other. In this space, members and visitors are encouraged to share their experiences at Makom, their beliefs and values, and their own stories. Respectful commentary is welcome.
