Plant a Tree in the Holy Land and Enter to Win a Trip to Israel

New York, NY: January 12, 2016 – Plant a tree from the comforts of your home or office and win the chance for a trip to Israel – for free!  

In celebration of Tu BiShvat, the Jewish New Year for trees which will be celebrated on January 25, Jewish National Fund (JNF) is offering anyone the opportunity to win a trip to Israel by planting a tree with the organization.     

JNF has partnered with EL AL Airlines and the Carlton Hotel Tel Aviv for an exciting online raffle to win a trip of a lifetime. When you plant a tree through between January 15, 2016 at 12:00:00 a.m. Eastern Time (ET) and January 25, 2016 at 11:59:59 p.m. ET, you will be entered to win the grand prize of a free round-trip ticket to Israel, courtesy of EL AL Airlines, with a free two-night stay at the Carlton Tel Aviv, breakfast included. A first prize winner will win one round-trip ticket to Israel, courtesy of EL AL Airlines, and ten runners-up will win a free JNF E-Z Tree™ account of 10 trees. You may also enter by calling 800.542.8733.     

Last year’s grand prize winner, Mila Lukova of Chagrin Falls, Ohio, a long-time JNF supporter who often purchases trees for birthdays and memorials remarked, “Planting a tree represents eternal life and that really resonates with me. Israel is like home to me and planting a tree or memorial plaques through JNF is the best way to showcase eternal life in Israel.”       

While in Israel, the sweepstakes winner will have the opportunity to plant a tree with their own hands at the JNF-Harvey Hertz Ceremonial Tree Planting Center at Neot Kedumim, the world’s only biblical landscape reserve.     

Tu BiShvat embodies the abiding dedication to ecology, environmentalism, and conservation that JNF has always championed. Over the years, Tu BiShvat has taken on the theme of planting trees in Israel, creating a special connection to JNF.

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.

JNF is a registered 501(c)(3) organization and United Nations NGO, which continuously earns top ratings from charity overseers.
