Tu Bishvat Outpost Tree Planting Festival

The ‘Chasdei Meir’ charity organization have gone planting thousands of fruit trees across Judea and Samaria in honor of the Fifteenth of the Month of Shvat, the festival of fruit trees.

MK Dr Michael Ben Ari explained, “We celebrate our bond with the Land of Israel by decorating it with fruit trees, and in effect conquer the land.” The civil administration does not remove the trees.

The trees are provided by public donations, with each donor awarded a certificate attesting to his participation in the struggle for the Land of Israel.
