NEW YEAR FOR TREES (Tu B’Shevat)

Over the past 100 years, more that 240 million trees have been planted in Israel. Israel is the only country in the world to have entered the 21st century with a net gain of trees. History, however, documents that not all have demonstrated love and concern for the land of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

Sunday Meditation (Philippians 4)
