Welcome to Makom

Makom is an information resource dedicated to supporting gay and lesbian students applying to yeshiva and midrasha. We believe that there is and should be a place for everyone to learn in yeshiva and midrasha. As yeshiva and midrasha alumni, we recognize the importance of an Israel gap year in developing avodat Hashem, ahavat Torah, middos, and connection to Israel. Having once been in the position ourselves, it saddens us to think that some people might assume that this opportunity may be beyond them. Our aim is to support every student to find their makom in the beit midrash, their place in the world of Torah. For anyone who is interested, we also hope to start a respectful, non-judgemental dialogue with the yeshiva/midrasha world.
