Every ounce of our energy must advance a vision of peace. There is no other way to rebuild a society in ruins. Our God, and God of our ancestors. Our God, and God of our descendants. Grant us peace.

“Love your neighbor, and love yourself. That is the whole Torah. All the rest is commentary.” – Hillel

“Love your neighbor, and love yourself. That is the whole Torah. All the rest is commentary.” – Hillel

We believe that the active pursuit of justice and dignity for all is a core expression of our Jewish spiritual and religious selves, and we integrate that belief into everything we do at IKAR. Minyan Tzedek is how we harness the organizing power of our entire community to work toward the world as it ought to be. Our goal is 100% community participation through one of our four paths: Feeding Our Neighbors, Green Action, IKAR Community Organizing, and Global Partnership.

 

Our expectation is that every member of the community participates in the work of tikkun– healing. We invite you to join others who share your passions and interests, and help us bring real, sustainable change to our city and world.

Fusing piety and hutzpah, obligation, and inspiration, IKAR is a dynamic, multi-generational community that fosters a yearning for personal, purposeful, creative engagement in Jewish life, particularly among young and disaffected Jews. Rooted in Los Angeles and reaching globally, we strive to actively and intentionally celebrate the vibrancy and diversity of the Jewish people.
