Welcome to Shoresh Jewish Environmental Programs!
Shoresh Jewish Environmental Programs (formerly The Jewish Nature Centre of Canada: Torat HaTeva) was established in 2002 to lead the Jewish environmental movement in the Greater Toronto Area. Through educational programs and grassroots initiatives, rooted in Jewish social and environmental values, Shoresh is working to build a more connected and ecologically sustainable Jewish community.
Using food and environmental issues as our lens, Shoresh’s hands-on learning opportunities allow community members to explore and experience Jewish teachings and ethics in real and meaningful ways.
Shoresh means “root” in Hebrew – grounded by Canadian soil, Shoresh is helping community members get back to their Jewish roots!
Shoresh Jewish Environmental Programs is a registered Canadian charity (No. 85335 3613 RR0001).
