Who We Are
Yakar Jerusalem seeks to create a sacred space for Jews from all backgrounds and denominations to engage in Judaism with honesty and integrity, in all of its depth and complexity.
At Yakar we come together for deep learning, intimate Tefillah, enriching lectures, and social responsibility.
We believe that true Jewish learning must extend beyond the walls of the Beit Midrash, and be rooted in the complex social and religious realities in Israel.
15 minutes after candle lighting, join us for a lively Friday night Tefillah, a fusion of Chassidic niggunim and contemporary music.
Yakar offers a plethora of classes, lecture series and workshops - - in search of spiritual vitality and intellectual integrity.
