What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
The ability of Rabbi Brous and the IKAR community to embrace everyone - traditional, non-traditional, alienated, newly minted, inquiring, young and old alike, as well as the just curious. This is Judaism in action, not as spectator sport!
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
Extraordinary!! Melissa Balaban, an IKAR founder, is a dynamo, always there, making things work. Maya wears countless hats & is tirelessly devoted to IKAR and its service to the community. All staffers & volunteers are devoted, reliable and passionate.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Establish a pre-school for the rapidly growing population of its members' children. Hire an assistant rabbi (or two) to help Rabbi Brous in her extraordinary work. Expand IKAR's outreach and aid to the homeless, hungry and disenfranchised.
