Shorashim-Tailor-Made Programs *
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.
