Karmi David Ingber (born 1962 in Brooklyn, New York) was the rabbi of Knesseth Israel Congregation. He took the position in fall 2007, replacing Avraham Shmidman. His first contract was not renewed and he is now the Rabbi of The Kehillah of Sandy Springs, Georgia.

Ingber's parents are Holocaust survivors from Czechoslovakia. He spent 20 years studying in Israel, and a few of those years teaching advanced studies for rabbis at Ner LeElef Institute. In Israel, he met his wife, also from New York. They have seven children.

From 2005 until his departure, Ingber was in Montreal, Canada, leading an outreach program in that Canadian Jewish community.
