What if I’m new?

Welcome! We love new faces and are glad you’re here. If you’re mulling over whether to come to check out IKAR, you should. We know it’s not easy to step into a new place, so we’ll be there for you and make it a bit easier to dip that toe in.

Never been to IKAR?

Start with our FAQs — after all, this ain’t your Bubbe’s shul.

Come to Shabbat services. We’re doing our thing every Saturday morning and every other Friday night. Or come hang out with our TRIBE (20s/30s) cohort, or connect with our Alta Rockers crew. Show up to a Culture Series event or a cozy learning session at a house party. There are tons of different entry points for getting your feet wet at IKAR.

If you want someone to contact you before you come, fill out this form. We’ll connect you with a staffer and help get you acclimated.

Oh, and when you do come by, be sure to introduce yourself so we can show you the secret handshake.
