Field Reports, General, Occupied Territories
Please join RHR on Wednesday, February 4th as we plant trees in a Palestinian village for Tu B’Shevat, the Jewish version of Arbor Day.
Already this year over 5,000 trees belonging to Palestinian farmers have been uprooted or hacked down by Jewish extremists.
Show a different, more compassionate face of Judaism to our Palestinian neighbors & help them plant new olive saplings on Tu B’Shevat, the Jewish version of Arbor Day. Not only is the solidarity so important, the trees themselves will benefit Palestinians for generations to come!
WATCH: FOOTAGE FROM LAST YEAR’S PLANTING!
WE ARE ALSO HOSTING A TU B’SHVAT SEDER! DETAILS TO COME!
*For those concerned about Jewish law surrounding the Sabbatical year (Shmita), there are halakhic opinions allowing planting on lands owned by non-Jews. Additionally, we are also happy to have you come and help prepare the trees for planting, but not do the actual planting itself.
RSVP is a must! Transportation available from Jerusalem, Rosh HaAyin and Tel Aviv. Please see the flier for details.
**UPDATE: We have added a bus from Tel Aviv. It will leave from the Arlozorov station (Sixt lot) at 9am!
Can’t make it in person? Donate a tree instead! $10 purchases one olive sapling, and makes a real investment in the future of generations of Palestinian to come. Help us reach our goal of donating 2,500 trees!
