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.

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.
