The Zionist Federation of Australia has decided to plant a Jewish National Fund wood in Palestine in memory of General Sir John Monash, the Honorary President of the Australian Zionist Federation, who died in October. The wood, on which 10,000 Australian eucalyptus trees will be planted, will be situated between Haifa and Megiddo.
