International Contest "My Family Story, Shorashim"
Two of our students awarded with a trip to Israel for the awards ceremony.

My family history  is the name of an important project conceived 16 years ago by Beit Hatfutsot , through which the roots of Jewish families in Israel and in the diaspora are investigated.


This project was expanded dramatically, both in the number of participating students and schools and in the number of countries. In addition, currently, to the research project of the Jewish roots, the modality of the artistic format that accompanies the manuscript has been added.


12,000 students from 76 countries from Israel and from all over the world participated in this edition. Young Israelis come from various locations, from Kiryat Shmona to Beer Sheva. Those from abroad come from: Argentina, Spain, Mexico, Costa Rica, Venezuela, Colombia, Germany, France, Russia, the US, Australia and for the first time, from Canada.


Most schools first do a pre-selection to determine which project is in the competition. The museum received 126 works of which they chose 12 works from Israel and 20 from abroad.

On this occasion, two of our students won an award - Dafna S. (2nd place) and Ilan T.  


On June 13, the awards were given in the city of  Tel Aviv, within the framework of a ceremony and festive act. Our boys and their families traveled to receive this award. Throughout the month his works will be exhibited in the museum.


Thank you for representing us in Israel and honoring the work and name of our beloved school.  A work that speaks of memory and identity. Congratulations guys, for your contribution to the development and success of this work!
