JNF’s Green Sunday Campaign is held each year in February to coincide with Tu Bishvat – A New Year for the Trees!

The campaign is supported by an annual telethon – a day of fun, community and solidarity.

In 2022 your donation will save lives in Israel by raising funds for essential security planting.

Trees have become a natural iron dome for Israel’s border communities, protecting them against missile attacks and sniper fire.

The communities of Holit, Sufa and Kerem Shalom need your help

The Kibbutzim of Holit, Sufa, and Kerem Shalom are situated just 1.5km from the Gaza border. Despite being in a highly exposed region, their residents continue to sow the land and raise their children in the true Zionist spirit of Israel.

Over the years, many families have joined these Kibbutzim because of the special life cultivated there. But safety is always a concern with missile attacks and sniper fire a constant reality.

Security planting to save lives

Security planting involves planting strips of trees along roads and around communities so that terrorists cannot see them and fire at them.

Trees can absorb shrapnel and disrupt a missile’s trajectory, directing the explosion away from populated areas of the kibbutz, thereby saving lives. With your help, JNF Australia will plant thousands of fast-growing, hardy trees to protect these brave communities.

It is hoped that this protective canopy, planted with your generous assistance, will enable farmers to cultivate their fields, children to play outdoors, school buses to travel freely and families to thrive in safety, away from enemy eyes.

Thank you in advance for your generous donation. Every tree you buy will go towards protecting the future of these three communities and contribute towards securing Israel’s future.

All donations to JNF Australia are fully tax-deductible.
