Makom Hadash is a hub for the Jewish innovation community in New York, and a residency center for second-stage Jewish non-profit organizations. Combining affordable space and office services with community and opportunities to learn, socialize and collaborate, it enables its member organizations to focus more on their missions, develop more sophisticated organizational infrastructure and collaborate more effectively together. Its programs offer networking, professional development, and opportunities for partnership to a range of smaller Jewish organizations and innovative programs.
Founded in 2010, Makom Hadash now offers office space for up to 27 full-time workers, with the possibility of increased capacity up to 45 seats; a few spaces for resident organizations are available for immediate occupancy. In addition, organizations not requiring full-time office space can join the center’s community as non-resident members, using Makom Hadash to connect with Jewish non-profit colleagues, as well as for drop-in space and office services. Many programs are open to both members and others in the Jewish innovation sector.
Operating on my own without any administrative support, Makom Hadash gave me the tools and inspiration to work efficiently and collaboratively… Thank you for creating this new space in which I can further my mission to engage Jewish organizations in environmental sustainable while being sustained myself. —Rachel Jacoby Rosenfield, Executive Director, Jewish Greening Fellowship
