Shorashim is committed to a pluralistic Jewish experience and reaches out to American youth who are unaffiliated and from all Jewish denominations and to Israelis from all backgrounds.

Our Company/Organization

Shorashim is a nonprofit organization devoted to building bridges between Israeli and North American Jews.

Bicultural programs are the foundation of Shorashim. Americans and Israelis travel and live and learn side by side as they explore Israel. By the end of the program participants are forever changed. North American participants have a deeper understanding of Judaism and Israel - not only because of what they did, but as a result of the people they met.

Israeli participants are dynamic, warm, enthusiastic students and young adults. They are excited and ready to show the Americans the beauty and complexity of their country. In addition, they look forward to learning about Jewish life in America.

Learning is a two-way process on Shorashim. Participants are the heart and soul of our programs. 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.


The Trip Staff Team

Shorashim staff members are knowledgeable, passionate and fun-loving people. They have many years of experience. Because the staff are program alumni, they have lived the mifgash or "encounter" experience and are well-equipped to guide your journey. Shorashim’s staff team includes a highly qualified Israel tour educator and two staff from North America who have extensive Israel experience. Our North American staff members have often led several Birthright Israel trips for Shorashim. For our community trips, both North American staff live in the city of the trip’s origin, attend a mandatory staff training, and are available for follow up after the experience. In addition, the staff group includes a certified medic (who also serves as a guard), and a licensed bus driver. Shorashim takes staffing extremely seriously and you can rest assured that any person who volunteers or is employed by Shorashim has been screened thoroughly.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
