Shorashim, meaning roots in Hebrew, is a cutting-edge, non-profit, educational organization devoted to building long-lasting bridges between Israeli and  North American Jews on multiple levels for more than 30 years. Catering to the variety of interests and  needs of participants and  values of each partnering organization, our bicultural programs are built to allow each individual in any group to carry out their journey in a way makes the most sense to them and  create a relationship to Israel that's meaningful to them. Our pluralistic Israel experience and  tailor-made experiences focus on travel, arts/culture, history, and  new technology. Our innovative and  immersive programs are crafted to the needs of our partners and  participants, which include CFJE (Ta'am Yisrael), CJDl, Solomon Schechter Day School, and  more. Through these programs, we continue to build bridges between North American and  Israeli Jews, ultimately strengthening ties to Israel through strong personal relations and  longlasting connections.
