Shorashim, D.N. Misgav 20164

Moshav Shorashim was founded in 1980 as a collaborative moshav. The residents of Shorashim decided immediately upon their arrival that ground to join the Masorti Movement.  And till this day, the community remains committed to a pluralistic approach to Judaism.

The synagogue Moshav Shorashim serves as a point for social activity for Jewish life-cycle ceremonies and holidays.

All activities are carried out on a volunteer basis – there is no rabbi and all the functions of the synagogue pass through the members. About half of Shorashim members are native Israelis and the rest are immigrants from various, mainly English-speaking countries.
