Malkhut is expanding our work into Long Island City! 

Malkhut has been given a generous grant from UJA-Federation of NY to expand our programming into Long Island City, Queens. That means that in addition to our Jackson Heights and other Western Queens footprints, we'll be focusing on learning as much as we can about LIC, the Jews and fellow travelers who live and work there, and how Malkhut can be of service to strengthening and building Jewish community in the neighborhood. 

If you live in or are connected to LIC, we would love to connect with you, get to know you, hear about your experience of living in LIC, learn about your Jewish or spiritual journey, and find out from you how you want to be supported by a Jewish community in your neighborhood. Please fill out the form below and we will reach out to be in touch!
