Who are we?

We believe that all people are equal and have infinite worth, regardless of race, age, sexual orientation, ability, gender identity, socio-economic status, faith, or anything else you can think of. We’re proud that IKARites come from all Jewish (or not) backgrounds, a diversity which only enriches our learning and praying together.

Most of the folks who are drawn to IKAR come because they desire a different kind of Jewish experience — one that stimulates them spiritually, socially and intellectually, and challenges them, in community, to make sense of what it means to be a Jew and a human being in the world. IKAR really is a collaborative undertaking that relies on the contribution of a wealth of talented and dedicated people. Meet our team and learn about our community members.
