Shorashim is a nonprofit organization devoted to building bridges between Israeli and North American Jews. As the Taglit-Birthright Israel provider for JUF, Shorashim has taken thousands of Chicagoans to Israel. In addition,CCP has been bringing high school students to Europe and Israel for 25 years where, like all of our trips, they travel with Israeli peers for a life changing experience. In addition, Shorashim works with MBA programs and Jewish organizations to coordinate their Israel experiences.

In conjunction with the Israel Education Center, Shorashim also runs programs in religious, day, and public schools specializing in the cultural and peoplehood aspects of Israel.

Learning is a two-way process on Shorashim. Shorashim is committed to a pluralistic Jewish experience. Shorashim reaches out to American youth from all the major denominations and to Israelis from the religious and non-religious sectors. Shorashim programs observe Shabbat and the laws of Kashrut.
