Rabbi David Kasher

Associate Rabbi

David Kasher serves as an Associate Rabbi at IKAR in Los Angeles. He grew up bouncing back and forth between Berkeley and Brooklyn, hippies and Hassidim – and has been trying to synthesize these two worlds ever since. He received his BA in Political Science at Wesleyan University, holds a J.S.D. from Berkeley Law, and Rabbinic Ordination from Yeshivat Chovevei Torah.  Rabbi Kasher is a teacher of nearly all forms of classical Jewish literature, but his greatest passion is Torah commentary, and he spent five years producing the weekly ParshaNut blog, exploring the riches of the genre – with a book version soon to be released! Check out his new podcast, also on the Parsha: ‘Best Book Ever.’
