Harvey Hertz Ceremonial Tree Planting Center

Harvey Hertz Neot Kedumim


Jewish National Fund invites you to plant a tree with your own hands in the soil of Israel at the Harvey Hertz-JNF Ceremonial Tree Planting Center at Neot Kedumim, the world's only biblical landscape reserve. Located just ten minutes from Ben-Gurion Airport and 20 minutes from Jerusalem, the Ceremonial Tree Planting Center offers visitors the opportunity to plant saplings that will later be transferred to sites throughout Israel.

Each planter receives a special tree planter’s prayer and a commemorative certificate, mailed directly to you. To participate in this time-honored tradition, please follow the instructions below. A confirmation e-mail along with directions will be e-mailed to you upon completion of your purchase.

Hours of Operation:
The tree planting center is open Sunday through Thursday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.

**This Jewish year is a sabbatical of the land, called "Shnat Shmita." During this period, which is the seventh year of the seven year agricultural cycle, the land is left to lie fallow, and all agricultural activity is halted. At Neot Kedumim, we respect the biblical concept of Shmita with its underlying social and ecological aspects. Therefore, we offer a special program for people who are interested in planting during the shmita year. At a scenic enclosed sukkah, visitors will choose seeds of various biblical plants and plant them in special containers. The seeds will sprout in the containers at our greenhouse, and at the end of the sabbatical year, we will plant them in the ground at different locations in Neot Kedumim.Participants will receive certificates testifying that they have taken part in the special Shmita planting.
Shmita planting will end on August 31st, 2015.
