Why the “Q”?
We like Qs. We like that Q is the first letter of the word “Question.” For that matter, we also like that A is in the middle of the word “Place.” We’re all about Questions and Answers. Q is also the proper English letter with which to transliterate the Hebrew letter quf (ק), as in the words, Qiddush and Qabbalat Shabbat.
Does HAMAQOM | The Place charge membership fees?
No, there is no membership fee at HAMAQOM | The Place. We do charge registration fees for participation in courses, Talmud Circles, and Kevah groups. As a nonprofit, we rely on tuition to help cover the direct cost of our course offerings. We also offer a tiered pricing structure to ensure that cost is not a barrier to participation. Please evaluate your own ability to pay and select the option that makes it possible for you to participate.
