Root Source

God. Jews. Christians. Torah. Respect. Love.

Van Alstyne, TX   |  https://root-source.com/

Mission

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! We address the messianic times vision of Isaiah 11:9: ""...the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea."" Our flagship program brings knowledgeable, authentic Israeli teachers and inquisitive Christians together to study the Jewish texts and concepts that are foundational to Christian faith. As a foundation for all this, Root Source builds bridges of friendship and fellowship between the Jewish and Christian faith communities, in our effort to reverse two thousand years of animosity and conflict.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Root Source's goal is to provide a platform for Christians and Jews who want to engage with each other a space to do that online. We want to give Christians the resources to build their understanding of their faith with authentic Jewish learning and friends. We want to bring more Jews into this circle as well, because it takes two to tango.

We follow every lead that is related to peace and partnership between Christians and Jews, and build friendships with every person who shares that vision.

Root Source is a leader in this field and is focused on learning more about it, meeting more partners in it, and providing resources for more people to enter it.

We have grown from a few hundred interested parties to over fifty thousand subscribers to our newsletter, over one thousand recorded lessons, over a dozen books and related products published, and numerous in person and on line events.
