Plant a Tree With Your Own Hands in Israel!

Posted on 7/21/2013 by in Israel Israel Today jewish national fund Planting Trees Nachshon Forest

The Jewish National Fund (JNF) has supporters of Israel to thank for much of the reforestation of Israel that donations have made possible. Since 1901, the JNF has planted over 240 million trees in Eretz Israel.

Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael (the JNF) is offering a tree planting experience to adults and children at two planting centers: in the Lavi forest, near Tiberias in the Galilee; and in the Nachshon Forest, in the Judean Lowlands in central Israel. You will also receive an attractive tree planting certificate, and a copy of the special Planter's Prayer. The greatest joy of this experience is the feeling of taking one's place forever in history as part of the reconstruction of the Holy Land.

"And when you come into the land, and plant all kinds of trees …" (Leviticus 19:23)

As always, readers outside of Israel are also able to participate in the restoration of the Land of Israel by planting a tree. You can partner with the JNF to complete the reforestation of the Promised Land. Click here *AND all this summer, Israel Today will match your donation - let us green Israel together!
