Ikar at the Alcove

The In-Town Retreat for the Jewish Woman

Tamar Adelstein, Administrator

We are the Jewish woman's In-Town Retreat offering an eclectic mix of classes, lectures and creative workshops built around monthly themes throughout the year.

Modeled after the Chautauqua Institute’s learning vacation concept, our affordable programs cater to small to medium size groups, fostering a friendly atmosphere for learning and gathering together.

Located at 1714 President Street in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, our staff of master instructors are affiliated with the multi-talented Chabad/Lubavitch community.

Ikar at the Alcove shares space with The Juneberry Tree Art Gallery and together host performing artists, musical concerts, lectures and discussions throughout the year.

Meaning the essence of things in Hebrew, 

we hope you will find Ikar an experience that adds 

to your storehouse of wisdom and enrichment!
