As it is written: “When you come to the Land, you shall plant trees” (Leviticus 19:23). Since the Jews began returning to the Land, they looked to this verse for inspiration and planted trees.

Now is your chance to make a lasting impact on the Land of Israel by planting your tree in Israel. Fulfill the words of the Bible as you plant a tree, in your honor or in honor of a loved one, by the Jewish National Fund. You will receive a beautiful, personalized certificate demonstrating that you have made a permanent impact upon the Land of Israel.
In the Bible
And out of the ground made Hashem God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
According to the simple meaning of the text in Genesis, God created a lovely garden in Eden for the purpose of beautifying the land for humanity, as well as to provide sustenance and nourishment. Placed in the middle of the Garden is what God called the "Tree of Life". Throughout history, Jewish scholars have interpreted these words to directly apply to the Torah, the Hebrew Bible. In the way a tree can sustain a person's physical life, by providing food, shade or wood, how much more so can God's Torah, which is the source of the richest spiritual nourishment for the soul. For this reason, trees are not only a valuable asset to the Holy Land, giving a means of livelihood through its entire being, but a truly cherished symbol of the Torah as the single most precious commodity since the beginning of time. Adding trees to Israel's landscape is a way of saying "I am devoting my life to God's Torah". Plant a tree today and help Israel flourish!
