Planting Trees at HaPalmach Park for Tu B’Shvat

After the fires in Haifa, Israel, ravaged the city at the end of November, many residents were left wondering how they could restore their parks, trees, and gardens that had been burned.

The Israeli government will cover private damage for residents, but there is no coverage for public parks. Thankfully, The Fellowship will be renovating the HaPalmach Park in Haifa, which was completely destroyed in the fire.

This restoration is just in time for the Jewish New Year of the Trees, or Tu B’Shvat, which celebrates the blessings of nature and teaches us that we must respect and protect our natural world.

Yesterday, in honor of this holiday, which Jews will celebrate this Saturday, Haifa residents, the Mayor Yona Yahav, the Minister of Finance, and Fellowship representatives all joined together to plant trees in HalPalmach Park.

We can’t wait to see what the park looks like after the trees grow and the renovations are completed!
