Representatives of Congress joined with Jewish National Fund and Israeli embassy officials to plant a ceremonial tree Thursday at the Faith Tabernacle United Holy Church here as part of plans to name a new JNF forest in the name of Coretta Scott King. At least 10,000 saplings will be planted in northern Israel located in place of trees burned by Hizbullah rockets during last summer's war. The forest will be dedicated to King's legacy of peace and justice, as is a second forest in the name of her husband, Martin Luther King, Jr. that already exists in the Negev.
