Plant a Tree and Fly to Israel

Plant a tree from your home and win the chance to plant a tree in Israel—for free!

In celebration of Tu B’Shevat, the Jewish New Year for trees, Jewish National Fund (JNF) has partnered with EL AL Israel Airlines for an exciting raffle. Everyone who plants a tree with JNF between January 24 and February 8, 2012 at 11:59 pm EST will be entered to win two round-trip tickets to Israel on EL AL.

While in Israel, the winner will have the opportunity to plant a tree with his own hands with a complimentary trip to the JNF-Harvey Hertz Ceremonial Tree Planting Center at Neot Kedumim.

Some restrictions apply. Trees may be planted by visiting jnf.org or call 800-542-TREE for details and to enter.

Jewish National Fund (JNF) began in 1901 collecting coins in blue boxes to purchase land and return the Jewish people to their homeland. In over 110 years, JNF has evolved into a global environmental leader and become the central address for partnering with the land and people of Israel. JNF has planted 250 million trees; built over 1,000 parks and recreational areas; constructed security roads; educated students around the world about Israel; created new communities so that Jews from around the world would have a place to call home; discovered new means of growing plants under arid conditions, bringing green to the desert; and built nearly 220 reservoirs and water recycling centers, increasing Israel’s water supply by 12%. Today, JNF is supporting Israel’s newest generation of pioneers by bringing life to the Negev Desert, Israel’s last frontier.

A United Nations NGO, JNF sponsors international conferences on desertification, shares afforestation techniques, and funds research on arid land management. JNF is a registered 501(c)(3) organization and continuously earns top ratings from charity overseers. For more information on JNF, call 888-JNF-0099 or visit www.jnf.org.
