Annual Tu B'Shvat Tree Planting Drive to Focus on Southern Israel

1,500 fruit trees for 1,500 rockets! This is the name of this year's annual Tu B'Shvat tree planting drive! Every year, our parent organization, Zo Artzeinu, leads the biggest fruit planting project in Israel. This year, they will be planting the trees in the exact areas which came under attack during the recent "Pillar of Defense" war. Cities like Sderot, Netivot, Beersheva, Ashkelon and Asdod will receive thousands of new fruit trees to signify life, growth and the Jewish people's eternal existence! (Note: Tu B'Shvat is next month!)

Over 50 schools across the USA and CANADA have already participated in previous tree plantings and we urge your school and organization to join us. Every child gets a beautiful certificate and prizes are awarded for the most trees planted. Great prizes such as iPads, Nintendos and pizza parties for hundreds of students! This is a fun and very educational project for the entire family.

Zo Artzeinu's project manager for the Tu B'Shvat tree planting project will be in the USA and will gladly meet all schools to discuss this exciting program. Please call or email Shlomo Walfish at the following numbers: Tel: (516) 371-2474 or email
