The Roots Black Box Initiative is our teffilin program.   When a student commits to wearing teffilin for 6 months ROOTS will give them their own pair of teffilin for free. To date we have over 300 people in this program. At the end of 6 months we hold a black box breakfast celebrating this achievement.  This is an easy way for any student to connect at some level with a Jewish strong Jewish practice enabling them to feel connected.
