In working with Arachim, Zalman Silber has continued to serve as a very staunch financial supporter and seminar sponsor for more than 15 years.

In 1979, a group of Israeli scientists and educators joined forces to form Arachim, an organization dedicated to renewing authentic Jewish values. They devised a 3 to 5 day seminar/retreat that uses lectures, workshops, and discussion groups to examine basic questions of Jewish outlook:

Are science and Jewish belief compatible?

What is the secret of Jewish survival, that has kept us a vital nation for thousands of years?

Why are Jews so often in the headlines, even though they constitute less than one half of one percent of the world's population?

The Seminar proved immensely popular. Originally, Arachim planned to hold three or four a year. Today, over two hundred are held annually, on five continents, in Hebrew, English, Spanish, Russian, French, Italian, and Hungarian.

The original Seminar format has been adapted for families, singles, and academics. It is presented in Israel, the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, in England, France, Italy, Holland, and Hungary, in South Africa, and in Hong Kong and India. Another refinement is the special interest Seminar, which may focus on alternative medicine, on the martial arts, interpersonal relationships, or mysticism, or motorcycling – and its relationship to Jewish values.

To date, over 500,000 people have attended Seminars worldwide. Their enthusiasm is contagious. “I never knew Judaism had so much to offer!” says Chayim Katz, an engineer from Tel Aviv. “It’s made my life more meaningful and satisfying.”
