Minister Hershkowitz Plants Trees with Bnei Akiva


Minister of Science and Technology, Rabbi Prof. Daniel Hershkowitz, took part on Wednesday in tree planting in honor of Tu B’Shvat in the Beit Aryeh-Ofarim local council, along with Danny Hirschberg, secretary general of the Bnei Akiva youth movement and about 4,000 Bnei Akiva students.
