Shoresh is the Hebrew word for “root.” Grounded in Canadian soil, Shoresh helps community members get back to their Jewish roots.
Shoresh is a grassroots Jewish environmental organization in Southern Ontario. We exist to nurture a regional Jewish community that sees environmental ethics as a core element of Jewish identity, and is actively committed to responsible stewardship of the earth. We do this through transformative educational programs that link Jewish texts and teachings with experiences of awe and wonder of the natural world; leadership opportunities that invest in the next generation of Jewish environmental leaders; and responsive action including environmental advocacy and the production of sustainable products that enrich Jewish life. We operate out of Shoresh’s Kavanah Garden in Vaughan, Bela Farm in Hillsburgh, and through schools, synagogues, camps, and community organizations throughout the Greater Toronto Area. Grounded in Canadian soil, Shoresh helps community members get back to their Jewish roots.
