Do Justice:
Minyan Tzedek


“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.


IKAR Community Organizing
Fighting for social justice, inspired by Torah.

Our current campaigns include fighting for a moral budget, eradicating homelessness, protecting immigrants, criminal justice reform, and getting out the vote this November.  We also host a Know your Reps series, and an Educated Activist book series.

Get involved!
