Avodat Shorashim, my roots -  2016

The 2nd ESO students (13 and 14 years old) presented their “Shorashim” projects in a colorful and multifaceted exhibition, thus reflecting the journey made by each of them in these months of work.


The “Shorashim” Project, linked to the Department of Education of the Beit Hatfutsot Diaspora Museum, is already traditional in our center. Year after year, students have the possibility to investigate their family and community roots, roots that they bring from the past and which we try to nurture in the present through school activity and study, so that our students know in the future to continue the Jewish life and being part of the chain of generations.


We have enjoyed a wonderful meeting where the students have represented their origins, their customs, and have paid tribute to their families.


CL coordinator of the project tells us: “It is a work that speaks to us of identity and memory. The family story of each one of us shapes the history of the Jewish People. It helps us to know where we come from, but, above all, where we belong. This project undoubtedly helps to strengthen our roots and therefore our identity ”.

The students themselves live this research process with enthusiasm and carry out their work with great professionalism. They say:


EB: “This project has been an unforgettable experience that is recommended to everyone”.


AG: “I have learned a lot about my family. I've been researching for six months. Sometimes I spent whole days doing the job! "


NC: "I have found it to be a very interesting project and it has helped me to learn more about my family's life."


CS says: “I found it an incredible experience, I learned new things about my roots. I appreciate the help of my parents and my tutor ”.


From the school we thank each of the fourteen 2nd year ESO families for their interest in work, for being enthusiastic with their children and supporting our teaching work one hundred percent.
