An outreach venture for New York’s 20- and 30-something Jews is celebrating its move into an $11 million Upper West Side home this week with a series of concerts and parties. An amalgamation of coffeehouse, bar, cinema, gallery and house of study, Makor bills itself as “New York’s newest center for culture” and is designed to serve as a national model for engaging the age group that studies say is least likely to participate in Jewish life. Primarily funded by philanthropist Michael Steinhardt, Makor, Hebrew for “source,” also has the financial backing of film director Steven Spielberg.
