      Israel Land Fund Calls on Investors to 'Redeem' Western Galilee


      Israel Land Fund (ILF), a non-profit organization fighting to redeem land in Israel for the Jewish people, is actively pursuing a project to expand Jewish investments in the sprawling tracts of farmland in Emek Zevulun, located in the western Galilee.

      The area has been designated for re-zoning by the government, and plans to extend the trans-Israel Highway 6 through the valley are anticipated to turn the quiet farmland into a flourishing residential area with vibrant business development. Adding to these expectations are plans to route a new train from Haifa to Carmiel through the region.
