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.

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.
