Activists to plant saplings in W. Bank for Tu b'shvat

February 7, 2012 20:30

In honor of the Tu B'shvat holiday on Wednesday right wing and left wing activists plan to plant saplings in the West Bank in areas where they feel it is important to make a political statement.

At the Migron outpost, activists and rabbis will plant and pray, as part of their protest actions against the pending IDF demolition of the community next month. In the Itamar settlement, residents, area settlers and activists will plan trees in memory of the five members of the Fogel family, who were killed last March when two Palestinian terrorists broke into their home.

Rabbis for Human Rights plans to bring left wing activists to the Palestinian village of Al Jeniya, which was recently the target of a price tag attack, to plant trees. By
