Communities in the Jordan Valley will hold a tree-planting event for the holiday of Tu BiShvat on Thursday. Attending the event will be Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon. "With all due respect to the Americans, there are some things that are ingrained in the soul," Danon stated in an interview with Arutz Sheva news on Wednesday. "Tu BiShvat means the land of Israel, and this valley. Abandonment of the Jordan Valley means abandoning the security of Israel," he said.
