Jewish National Fund Blue Box - pushke
We attended a Jewish National Fund Tree of Life fundraiser at the Arizona Biltmore. JNF CEO Russell Robinson described recent activities in the Negev, Beer Sheva and the reforestation following the horrible fires in the Carmel Mountains and Haifa. In the meantime we keep putting tzedakah into the pushke every Shabbat. Our friends Daniel and Sharona Feller were honored with a Tree of Life Award. L'dor v'dor.
Since its inception, the JNF has planted over 240 million trees in Israel. It has also built 180 dams and reservoirs, developed 250,000 acres (1,000 km2) of land and established more than 1,000 parks.
