Shoresh (Hebrew: שורש, שֹׁרֶשׁ, lit. Root) is a moshav shitufi in central Israel. Located five kilometres from Sha’ar HaGai in the Jerusalem corridor, it falls under the jurisdiction of Mateh Yehuda Regional Council. In 2018 it had a population of 1,249.
On 15 April 1948, the Harel Brigade captured the Arab village of Saris overlooking the highway to Jerusalem. The strategic hilltop position had been used to fire on Jewish vehicles travelling on the road below. Later that year, a group of immigrants from Eastern Europe founded a kibbutz on the site, adapting the name of Arab village. Four years later, it became a moshav. Today Shoresh operates a hotel, conference center and banquet hall.
In July 1995, a fire destroyed the moshav’s poultry and orchard industries, damaged the hotel, and left over half the moshav members homeless.
