Women in Green continues to work to redeem Plot 94 near Netzer for the Jewish people.

Recently the Civil Administration transformed the plot from "Surveyed Land" to private Arab land despite the survey to determine its actual status being as of yet incomplete.

Last Thursday - to celebrate the advent of the Hebrew month of Adar - Women in Green founders Nadia Matar and Yehudit KatSover took a group of Jewish pioneers from Ranaana to work Plot 94 in their bid to redeem it.

Ilan Hirshfeld of Ranaana said, "We've come here to plant trees, to plant vines... the only way you can take hold of Eretz Yisrael is by working the land and being involved in the land."

"And we've come to help Nadia Matar and Yehudit Katzover with what they are doing, Avodat Kodesh [Holy Work -ed]," he added.
