"I will put in the desertthe cedar and the acacia, the myrtle and the olive.I will set junipers in the wasteland,the fir and the cypress together,so that people may see and know,may consider and understand,that the hand of the Lord has done this,that the Holy One of Israel has created it." Isaiah 41:19–20
This Tu Bi'Shvat we are donating 5% of our sales to planting trees in Israel. The proceeds will go to Israel365, which is committed to the restoration of Israel in fulfillment of Biblical prophecy. Trees have been a big part of the restoration of Israel historically, and they continue to play an important part today, as that restoration continues. They represent the fact that God has called his people home. And as the roots of the trees go deeper into the soil of Israel, so to do the hearts of the Jewish people connect to their homeland. It's a beautiful picture to see, and even more fulfilling to be part of!
In honor of Israel's 71st anniversary, Israel365 is planting trees in 71 communities across the country. Your purchases for the next three days will go towards that effort, bringing Israel closer to the day when "Israel will bud and blossomand fill all the world with fruit."
