IKAR is the most welcoming community where every one feels important. Experiencing the sincerity of Rabbi Sharon Brous is so refreshing and learning Torah from her is enlightening. Learning that praying is hard work and being a part of the prayer experience is so fulfilling. Every member of the IKAR davening team including Hillel Tigay, Ross Levinson, Lizzi Heydemann and others share their skills and talents and allows you to be a participant. IKAR is so apecial, I recommend this community for everyone.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Community and Learning

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Knowledgable and friendly

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Alleviate hunger, improve education, and refurbish or build a new facility that is worthy of the tasks needing to be accomplished.

Whether you are a devoted observer of Judaism or a culturally devoted individual without any knowledge of Hebrew, IKAR is a welcoming place for all. The environment is hamish; pleasing to all age groups. So many young families are involved in the Jewish community by way of IKAR; setting an example for this next generation of Jewish children. The lively services with singing, dancing; the inspiring messages brought forth each week by Rabbi Brous are what you find at IKAR. But what you cannot see immediately is the work that each and every member is doing behind the "scenes" to make our world a better place. Our Rabbi has structured programs giving us the opportunities to make a difference and has given me personally a greater sense of purpose.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

being motivated to do more to help others.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

so devoted to making my experience a good one as well as working to make IKAR the best it can be.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

provide a home (permanent location) away from home for its members where we could meet to study and learn, teach our children and provide further services for those in our community less fortunate than ourselves.
