Celebrating Tu B’Shvat after the Shemittah year!

You planted trees in Samaria!

Each winter we celebrate the Jewish Holiday of Tu B’Shvat, the 15th day of the Biblical 11th month, known in Hebrew as Shvat. It is a time when we all go out and plant trees, setting down roots in the Land of Israel and celebrating the return of the Jewish people to our land. This year was particularly joyous as it marked the first Tu B’Shvat after the Sabbatical year, when we did not plant any trees. On Tu B’Shvat itself (February 6th) it poured rain and we could not plant on that day, although we were so grateful for the blessing of rain that God showered upon us. But one week later, we joined school children from Karnei Shomron and planted trees in a public garden, established by you, our CFOIC Heartland donors, for the benefit of the people of Karnei Shomron.

Thank you for all you have done to plant trees in Israel, for this Tu B’Shvat and throughout the year, for so many years. We will continue to plant trees all year round and with each new tree, we will indeed be greening the Land of Israel. If you would like to plant a tree in honor or in memory of a loved one, or in your own name, please click here. You will receive a certificate for every tree you plant attesting to your participation in the fulfillment of prophecy with every tree you plant. Thank you so much.

Shalom from Samaria,
