Partner Programs



IKAR is a spiritual community formed in 2004 by a group of families under the leadership of Rabbi Sharon Brous. IKAR emerged out of a hunger for a Jewish spiritual community that stimulates the intellect, elevates the spirit, and engages seriously and deeply in the world.  From that small beginning, IKAR has grown into a dynamic community dedicated to creating a welcoming spiritual home for L.A.’s diverse Jewish population.

IKAR hosts Shabbat services and dinners, facilitates Torah study sessions, provides a school for children’s spiritual, intellectual and personal enrichment and focuses on doing Tikkun, both in our city and our world.
