Prime Minister Netanyahu Opens Tu Bishvat 2014 at the Grove of Nations

“We are a link in the chain of generations. We returned to our land to stay and to take root here.”

This year’s Tu Bishvat events were opened at an official ceremony at the Grove of the Nations in Jerusalem, in the presence of the Prime Minister, Mr. Benyamin Netanyahu.

By planting a tree here, Mr. Netanyahu joined other heads of states who planted trees in the grove, as a sign of friendship between nations and as a symbol of peace.
KKL-JNF is holding about 200 ceremonies and events throughout Israel in honour of the New Year for Trees.
