E'rootha mission statement

E'rootha, the Chaldean Assyrian Syriac Youth Union, through cultural awareness, community service and education, is dedicated to promoting the well-being of our community for the betterment of society.


Please join us for a night full of talented artists and performers from our community. On October 14, 2014, E'rootha will be hosting it's 6th annual Evening of the Arts fundraiser. It will be an event you do not want to miss--strolling art gallery, poetry, live instrumentalists, musical performances, and a silent auction in which all proceeds will benefit the Shlama Foundation.

We would like to thank all the artists and we would like to thank our gold sponsor Wireless visions, and our other sponsors for making the 2014 show this year a huge success! We would not be able to put on this event without you!
