General, Occupied Territories
RHR has launched a new Indigogo campaign raising funds to donate olive trees to Palestinian farmers. $10 buys one sapling for a Palestinian farmer who has either had his trees damaged or destroyed by Israeli extremists, or lives in an area in danger of being taken-over or expropriated by settlement expansion.
For the last ten years Rabbis for Human Rights has planted olive trees with our Palestinian partners in the Occupied Territories in what has become one of our most notable traditions. As we witness new levels of vandalism against these ancient and precious trees, we see our mission as more urgent and valuable than ever. More than an international symbol of peace, our olive trees also represent the mending of injustice and wrongs between Israeli Jews and Palestinians. Hope coming alive, these trees will one day bear beautiful olives that will benefit generations of Palestinians to come.
