“coronation Forest” of British Jewry Will Have 250,000 Trees

A “Coronation Forest” will be planted by British Jewry in Israel in honor of Queen Elizabeth and will contain about 250,000 trees, it was revealed today. All sections of the British Jewish community, including those not ordinarily identified with active communal affairs, are sponsoring the forest. Queen Elizabeth is understood to have expressed great appreciation for the honor bestowed on her.
