"I'm very excited at the opportunity to hear from our listeners whom we love so much," said Malkah Fleisher, host of the Eyshet Chayil show on Israel National Radio. "This is the time of year that we get to listen to them, and not just talk."

Tzvi Barish, Arutz Sheva English Internet manager, said, "No matter what amount we raise, this day is a great success for Arutz Sheva. All the show hosts are taking part. I'm psyched."

The theme of the Shevathon is Growth, corresponding to the upcoming Tu B'Shvat holiday, which celebrates the Jewish new year for trees. As such, there will be Tu B'Shvat activities conducted live throughout the telethon, and learning about the Jewish aspects of nature and our role in the world. The Shevathon will also focus on Jewish growth in the land of Israel, with special interviews from Jewish communities throughout the land, especially in Judea and Samaria, where Jewish courage and life in the face of obstacles continues to thrive.

The target for the Shevathon is $360,000, which will be used to help Arutz Sheva continue its quality array of news media services, and grow and expand into new horizons. This target number is a multiple of 18, which signifies Life in Jewish tradition. Donors will be able to contribute via the Internet and by phone, with selected donors going on air live with the show hosts. Special prizes will be awarded, which include meeting with favorite show hosts, Israeli artwork, Arutz Sheva T-shirts and hats, and much more.

Arutz Sheva sees its role as an alternative media source as crucial, in a political and media environment that is increasingly hostile to Israel, from the Goldstone report that targeted Israel's right to defend itself, to the daily and ever-intensifying pressure on Israel's leaders to relinquish the Jewish homeland. Arutz Sheva hopes to continue in its mission to bring the truth to light, and to promote the values of Torah, of a strong Israel, and of a proud Jewish people. All this, through up-to-the-minute coverage of the news online, by email, on the radio, and via video.

The phone lines are open now. To support Arutz Sheva, call 1-800-270-4288 from the U.S., Canada, and Israel. Click here to donate online. Arutz Sheva wishes a very happy Tu Bishvat to all its readers and listeners.
