HARVEY HERTZ CEREMONIAL TREE PLANTING CENTER
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 in the reserve where they are needed most.
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 Israel Time (2am-9am EST)
Own transportation is required
