|For generations, planting a tree in Israel has symbolized a lasting
partnership with the land and people of Israel. Planting trees serves
as a lasting legacy to someone you love or helps commemorate one
of life’s milestones; a gift of a tree shows you care and believe in the
immutable bond between the soil and the soul.
When the Jewish National Fund was founded in 1901, Israel was a
desolate, barren landscape. More than a century and 250 million
trees later—one tree, one donor at a time—JNF and its supporters
have transformed the land of Israel into a 250,000-acre, green,
Hadassah is the largest organizational contributor that JNF has. A
partner with JNF and Keren Kayemeth L’Yisrael (KKL) since 1926,
Hadassah has played a vital role in making a living commitment
to Israel—a promise that the land will belong to the Jewish
people forever. Together with JNF-KKL, Hadassah has helped
with reforestation, preparing land for agriculture, creating parks,
playgrounds and recreation sites, and providing urgently needed
water conduits such as dams, aquifers and reservoirs.
Hadassah’s newest partnership with JNF-KKL is the Greening of the
Negev Project—a program in which we are helping to fund seven
new communities in the Negev, complete the Be’er Sheva River Park
Project and green army bases in the Negev. The tree(s) purchased
with this certificate will be used in helping to “Green the Negev”.
Planting a tree helps build a prosperous future for the land of Israel
and its people. It is a link in a thousands-year-old chain. If you would
