On Friday Israelis will celebrate Tu Bishvat, the "new year of the trees," and local Messianic schoolkids in Jerusalem got an early start on the tree planting that typically accompanies the holiday.
Dozens of elementary-age kids from Jerusalem's Messianic day school, Makor Hatikvah, gathered for a time of worship and tree planting in the Messianic village of Yad Hashmonah on the outskirts of Jerusalem.
The event was organized by the Revive Israel ministry. One of the ministry's leader told the kids that while they get visitors from all over the world, "it is our greatest honor to receive and celebrate with you (the Messianic children of Jerualem)."
Photos of the Makor Hatikvah children planting trees are below.
