American J. N.f. Urges U.S. Jews to Plant More Trees in Israel

The Jewish National Fund today urged every American Jew to subscribe to the planting of at least ten trees in Israel as a personal tribute to her first ten years of independence and as a means of helping the Jewish State to rehabilitate large areas of barren or eroded soil for agriculture and immigrant settlement.

The call to plant “Ten Trees for Ten Years of Israel” was issued by the JNF’s board of directors from the land agency’s headquarters here. The Jewish National Fund said that every person who plants at least “Ten Trees for Ten Years of Israel” will have his or her name and the amount of the subscription inscribed on a Scroll of Honor to be presented to President Itzhak Ben Zvi of Israel later this year.
