The Ruach Tovah (Good Spirit) NGO held its 8th annual Good Deeds Day, with the goal of encouraging everyone to do something good for the environment or for the community, through one of thousands of special projects. Several years ago, KKL-JNF joined forces with Good Deeds Day, and got many volunteers involved in activities for people and the environment. About half a million Israelis took part in Good Deeds Day.
The KKL-JNF Southern Region organized an environmental activity in conjunction with the Shaked Patrol NGO and the Bnei Akiva Afikei Eretz Yeshiva, during which volunteers were occupied with clean-up activities and clearing the weeds in the Shaked Patrol Park. Near the memorial in the park, there was a special project for installing a water pipeline for irrigating the new almond grove planted last Tu Bishvat.
Participants in this activity included Negev rural communities and the Shefa Division of the Ofakim Municipality, which contributed tractor work for the installation of the pipeline.
At the conclusion of the activity, Rabbi Adi, an educator at the Afikei Eretz Yeshiva, said, “We were glad to participate in cleaning up the land of Israel, especially in a place as special as the Shaked Patrol Park.
“The students really bonded with the project and the unique location.”
