March 13, 2006— New York, NY— Jewish National Fund (JNF) is pleased to offer several unique ways to celebrate and prepare for Passover while supporting JNF and Israel.
Enhance your Passover Seder with an autographed soft cover edition of The Moriah Haggadah. Designed by world-renowned Israeli artist Avner Moriah, the haggadah is a stunning visual chronicle of the story of Passover with rich images in blues, oranges, and golds inspired by the landscape of the Middle East. Autographed editions are available for $40 exclusively through JNF, and a portion of the proceeds will support JNF’s important work for the land and people of Israel.
Planting trees in Israel is a meaningful and affordable way to commemorate the Passover holiday. JNF, an organization with a long-standing tradition of supporting Israel’s environment, has improved the land by planting over 240 million trees and providing luscious belts of green covering more than 250,000 acres. For just $18, you can help green the land of Israel while sending a special gift to a friend or loved one.
With each purchase, JNF sends a customized decorative certificate of your choice to the person receiving the gift. The recipient’s name and your personal message are inscribed on the certificate. Choose from a variety of tree certificates including “Trees for Israel,” “Children’s Forest,” “Unity of Israel,” and “Holy Land.” Water certificates are also available.
JNF is continuing our special pricing: plant 2 trees and get 1 free to make a “Ring” of 3 or buy 4 trees and get 1 free to make a “Circle” of 5. For $500, a garden of 100 trees is planted in Israel, a special garden certificate is sent, and the designated name is inscribed in the Book of Gardens in Jerusalem.
Also available are JNF’s all-occasion greeting cards. The “Landscapes of Israel” set features beautiful images of Israel from paintings by Avner Moriah, highlighting Israel’s natural scenery and the diversity of its landscape. Our “Water is Life” greeting cards help increase awareness of Israel’s water crisis and the role of Jewish National Fund in alleviating it. Over the last decade, JNF has increased Israel’s water resources to furnish water to 1.2 million people. Each set of 12 blank greeting cards sells for $30.
All of the above items are available for purchase by visiting the JNF Online Store or by calling JNF’s toll-free number, 800-542-TREE (8733). And remember, we always ship free of charge!

JEWISH NATIONAL FUND (JNF) began in 1901 as a dream and vision to reestablish a homeland in Israel for Jewish people everywhere. Jews the world over collected coins in iconic JNF Blue Boxes, purchasing land and planting trees until ultimately, their dream of a Jewish homeland was a reality. JNF gives all generations of Jews a unique voice in building a prosperous future for the land of Israel and its people.
JNF embodies both heart and action; our work is varied in scope but singular in benefit. We strive to bring an enhanced quality of life to all of Israel’s residents, and translate these advancements to the world beyond. JNF is greening the desert with millions of trees, building thousands of parks, creating new communities and cities for generations of Israelis to call home, bolstering Israel’s water supply, helping develop innovative arid-agriculture techniques, and educating both young and old about the founding and importance of Israel and Zionism.
