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.
Watch this JNF Webinar with Hayim Katsman from Kibbutz Holit.
“Life on the Border”
PLANTING TREES TO SECURE ISRAEL’S FUTURE
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.
Many families have joined these Kibbutzim because of the special way of life nurtured there. But safety is always a concern with the threat of attack, 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 shield 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.
Each tree is just $18, and every tree you donate will help safeguard the communities of Holit, Sufa and Kerem Shalom, and contribute towards securing Israel’s future. Thank you in advance for your generous donation.
All donations to JNF Australia are fully tax-deductible.
