Shorashim is a cutting-edge non-profit organization that has dedicated more than 30 years to building long-lasting bridges between Americans and Israelis through innovative, immersive adventures. On Shorashim, Americans and Israelis explore Israel, side-by-side, for the entire experience. Our transformational, authentic journeys offer new perspectives, focusing on experiencing the culture, sites, scenes, vibes, variety of stories, and people of Israel, in the way that connects to each participant. The adventure is made, not only by what is seen and experienced, but by the people that participants encounter and the close group formed. Since Birthright Israel's inception, we have worked in valued partnership with JUF to offer tailored Birthright Israel adventures to 18-to-26 year olds in the Chicago community. Shorashim is a leading trip provider, with trips running in December, January and May through August, with all of our Chicago community trips departing from Chicago!

Jewish Enrichment Center

The Jewish Enrichment Center is a laboratory school that raises a child's voice in Jewish learning. Since 2011, we've run an independent Sunday and afterschool in Hyde Park, Chicago, where children are co-creators of Judaism. The Jewish Enrichment Center is recognized nationally as an exceptional model of deep, personalized Jewish children's learning. At the Jewish Enrichment Center, children ask questions, generate ideas, and bring Jewish texts to life for themselves. Using art and drama and clay, children dialogue with peers and with our ancient tradition, simultaneously growing their Jewish literacy as well as skills for critical and creative thinking and compassionate listening. Our environment teaches children to pursue dignity for all humanity. Now open for infant/toddlers through middle school.
