We believe that the active pursuit of justice and dignity for all is a core expression of our Jewish spiritual and religious selves, and we integrate that belief into everything we do at IKAR. Minyan Tzedek is how we harness the organizing power of our entire community to work toward the world as it ought to be. Our goal is 100% community participation through one of our four paths: Feeding Our Neighbors, Green Action, Organizing for Systemic Change and Global Partnership.
Our expectation is that every member of the community participates in the work of tikkun– healing. We invite you to join others who share your passions and interests, and help us bring real, sustainable change to our city and world.
- Disaster Response: While IKAR has teams of members that do ongoing tikkun work, we are also called to respond to natural and human-made disasters close by and around the world.
- If you’d like to show support for local evacuees from the Creek and Skirball fires, you can bring water, food, new socks and underwear to the Los Angeles Donations Management site at Sherman Oaks East Valley located at 5056 Van Nuys Blvd., Sherman Oaks, CA 91403 / (818) 386-9674.
