Praying with Our Hearts/ Praying with Our Feet” at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 20 at the Jewish Community Center’s Arts & Education Building, 2 Millstone Campus Drive.

 Brous is the founding rabbi of IKAR, which has been described as “a thriving Jewish community that stands at the intersection of soulful, inventive spiritual and religious practice and a deep commitment to social justice.” 

Both Brous and Ingber have been recognized as one of the nation’s leading rabbis by Newsweek and named one of the 50 most influential American Jews by The Forward
