The Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael-Jewish National Fund, through the office of the
Chief Rabbinate, has deemed Israel’s forests kosher for Passover and
“The people of Israel can relax and enjoy the days of Hol
Hamoed [the intermediate days of the holiday] on ‘kosher for Passover’ hikes in
KKL-JNF parks and forests throughout the country,” KKL-JNF said on Sunday. More
than 2 million visitors are expected in the forests over the holiday; KKL-JNF
foresters have been busy preparing the areas.
“KKL-JNF continues to work
to promote the importance of planting and maintaining the forests of Israel,”
said Chief Rabbi Yona Metzger.
