Root Source is a primarily web based organization that exists to enable, encourage, and enrich relationships between pro-Israel Christians and Jews on a basis of mutual respect and love. What we have in common is greater than what separates us and is plenty to focus on. Our flagship programs bring knowledgeable, authentic Israeli teachers and inquisitive Christians together to study the Jewish texts and concepts that are foundational to Christian faith.
Nations' Ninth of Av is an initiative of Christians who recognize the painful history between Christians and Jews and step forward to repent and take responsibility. They run educational programs, including an annual tour of Israel coinciding with the fast of the Ninth of Av.
