About IKAR: IKAR, an innovative model for Jewish engagement, launched in 2004 to reclaim the vitality and relevance of Jewish religious practice and reimagine the contours of the Jewish community. Recognized nationally for its success in engaging young and disaffected Jews, IKAR is a positive and proactive response to the declining trend in affiliation in the Jewish community. IKAR is dedicated to reanimating Jewish life through imaginative engagement with ritual and spiritual practice and a deep commitment to social justice. Fusing piety and hutzpah, obligation and inspiration, we are harnessing untapped energy in the Jewish community –attracting and mobilizing Jews who to contribute their vast intellectual and creative resources to address real-world concerns effectively and unapologetically. Since its founding, we have witnessed exponential growth from a handful of people to a community of 600+ member households – making it one of the fastest-growing Jewish communities in the country. Hundreds of others – both in Los Angeles and nationally – participate in a wide diversity of IKAR programs and services. In addition to establishing a vital presence in Los Angeles, we have also become a leading model of engaging, authentic, resonant Jewish life that is inspiring change in synagogues and communities around the country.
