If you do not fit into their clique you will be discriminate against I was humiliated outside by the Rabbis Father who did not like the way I was dressed. I am not even Jewish and came in a suit but a group of them insisted that I should come in pajamas. There is class warfare and economic jealously occurring with this group and the leadership. I sensed anger, resentment and jealously amongst some of the members because I do not think they are able to make a living. Rabbi was very polite though. I choose to go someplace else because personally I choose to soar with the eagles rather than run with the Turkeys.

Words can't really express how wonderful i think this community is...i grew up orthodox in England, lived in NYC for six years and finally settled in LA two years ago. IKAR is one of the reasons that i will stay! It feels like the community i have always been searching for...the overall vibe is open and welcoming, a true "by the people, for the people" feel...the music and the soul and the sense of spirit that emanates from services every week never ceases to amaze me and as i'm sure everyone notes, Rabbi Sharon is just a gift of a leader. Her sermons are grounded and real and uplifting and lofty all at the same time. I live in Venice, over a half an hour drive away and there is no question that it is worth the commute. The mix of social justice, intellectual inquiry and soulful singing communal singing and dancing is exactly what i think Judaism is and should be all about. My parents came from Chicago and my grandfather came from England to experience Yom Kippur at IKAR this year and said that from now on, wherever they are in the world, they will always endeavor to come to LA to come IKAR for Yom Kippur. That's how moving and wonderful they found it and i concur!

The Great!
