A forest in memory of the late Israeli Chief Rabbi Isaac Herzog was planted today by the Jewish National Fund and members of the Jewish community of Dublin where Dr. Herzog was Chief Rabbi before settling in Palestine.

The forest was planted in the Elah Valley where David conquered Goliath. The ceremony was attended by JNF World Chairman Yaacov Tzur, Interior Minister Moshe Shapiro, Religious Affairs Minister Zorah Warhaftig, Louis Sher, head of the Dublin Jewish Community, and Eliyah Sampson, president of the Dublin JNF.
