This year, the holiday of Tu Bi’Shevat falls on January 27–International Holocaust Remembrance Day. In recognition of these coinciding themes, JNF has carefully selected projects with the intention of providing vital assistance to Holocaust survivors and honouring those who perished by revitalizing the Plugot Forest in their memory.
Please consider giving a gift in the name of a family member who perished or survived the Shoah. If able, we kindly ask you to think about supporting this campaign on a monthly basis to help as many Holocaust survivors as possible. Each gift over $100 will be entitled to receive a beautiful commemorative certificate. Or, you can let JNF decide the area of greatest need.
Thank you for your trust in JNF and Happy Tu Bi Shevat.
Please give generously and let’s Build Israel Together!
Help Holocaust Survivors Cope During Their Golden Years.
Many of the nearly 200,000 Holocaust survivors living in Israel today were children during WW2, children who suffered an unimaginable tragedy. After the war, they made every effort to rebuild their shattered lives, but not all succeeded. Many continue to struggle with their traumatic pasts. Over the past years, the number of survivors requesting support continues to grow. As the survivors age and face additional challenges their needs’ grow and their support network becomes more limited.
With your help, JNF will renovate Amcha’s Centre in Rehovot servicing Survivors with psychological and social support. This centre has become dilapidated and is unsuitable for many activities. This centre will provide a rich array of programs, that after a year of isolation due to the pandemic, have become more important than ever. Now is the time to help us honour these brave Jewish heroes and ensure their final chapters are filled with support and happiness.
Plant some trees to attract the bees at Plugot Forest!
This Tu Bishat, we invite you to participate in our most time-honoured tradition and help us renew the arson-balloon damaged Plugot Forest with new, “bee-puller” trees to increase the bee populations by attracting other bees to the area. Bees are central to the functioning of our entire ecosystem by fertilizing which produce 90% of the world’s food.
Located in the Northern Negev close to the city of Kiryat Gat, the Plugot Forest holds great significance in Israeli history as the site of one of the great battles during the War of Independence and includes many other heritage sites and is a wonderful recreational spot for families to spend quality time immersed in nature.
This year, plant some trees to attract the bees!
Let JNF Decide:
Let JNF decide the area of greatest need by helping Holocaust Survivors cope with the pandemic and aiding in food security by planting trees to attract bees in the Plugot Forest.
You can also consider giving a monthly gift to the project of your choice.
