Nes Harim’s Newest Olive Tree- Thanks to Israel365!

It was a pleasure to meet Merav and her adoreable son, Tzur in Nes Harim. Israel365 planted a strong and sturdy olive tree right at the enterance of the community of Nes Harim.

The community of Nes harim was founded in 1950 by Jewish immigrants to Israel from Kurdistan. The name Nes Harim comes from the verse Isaiah 18:3 “All you who live in the world And inhabit the earth, When a flag is raised in the hills, take note! When a shofar is blown, give heed!” The Hebrew for “a flag raised in the hills” is Nes Harim.

When this community was founded, its pioneers raised a flag on this mountain as a triumphant sign of the return and the restoration of the Jewish people in the Land of Israel. The tree that we planted in the ground will be a sign of the miracle of the return of the Jewish people to their land and the support that the Jewish people receive from the nations around the world.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the Israel365 intiaitve of planting trees ALL ACROSS the Land of Israel.
