Growing up, you might have been taught to approach Judaism in a certain way. You may have been taught about an angry and punishing God. Your questions may not have been addressed, or you may not have thought to even ask. Project Makom’s classes offer insight into different areas of of halacha and hashkafa. Please know that hashkafic questions are always legitimate, and that you have a right to seek answers to them.
Past classes have included:
- The Halachic Process
- The Existence of God
- Reward and Punishment
- Science and Torah
Project Makom is not a mental health or social services organization, but we have relationships with many qualified ones. Navigating one’s way toward a different social community is always challenging. Even if you don’t plan on radically changing your lifestyle, these kinds of transitions are fraught and present unique obstacles.
In order to become a member, we are looking for individuals who have a basic stability – including jobs, home, and not currently in a crisis. We believe that it is not appropriate to be involved in religious matters if basic physical and emotional needs are not in place. For individuals who come to us missing these points of stability, we refer them to organizations that can help them get stable.
For our members who have basic stability, but need some extra help with finding a good therapist or dealing with difficulty in marriage, we refer them to qualified professionals.
