Ikar’s Sharon Brous Featured On Time Magazine’s Norman Rockwell Throwback Cover

    The latest cover for TIME Magazine features Rabbi Sharon Brous, of the Los Angeles congregation Ikar, with a cover story called “Who Gets To Be An American?” The cover is based on Norman Rockwell’s famous 1943 “Freedom of Worship” painting, from his series of paintings on the Four Freedoms outlined by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in his 1941 speech.

    Brous has become a nationally known rabbi for her leadership of Ikar, a growing congregation that is not affiliated with any movement, and for her political activism. She is pictured with several other faith leaders.

    The cover will likely further boost Brous’, and Ikar’s, national profile, at a moment when the community is fundraising nationally for its first building.
