Because this is the last planting season before Shmitta, farmers can't plant trees next year and will be planting DOUBLE this year. One of the world’s leading experts on agricultural mitzvot (biblical laws) is Rabbi Yosef Efrati. When he met the leaders of “Zo Artzeinu / Israel Trees” he told them to publicize these words:


“People around the world, who buy fruit trees for farmers to plant in Israel, are considered partners in all of the mitzvot (laws) including Shmitta!”

PLANTING HAS BEGUN! - Order trees & we'll plant them.

The AWESOME Yeshivat Hakotel boys woke up early sun morning, headed to the Judean Hills south of Jerusalem at the crack of dawn said the morning prayer at dawn.

When you come to the land plant FRUIT trees”

Leviticus 19:23 ויקרא

The Torah (Bible) instructed;

"Plant FRUIT trees when entering the land" Leviticus 19:23

The Torah (Bible) says;

"And I will bless those who bless you" (Genesis 12:3 בְּרֵאשִׁית) I וַאֲבָרְכָה, מְבָרְכֶיךָ


Planting Fruit trees, brings blessing to the people and the Land!

R. Yochanan Ben Zakai said over 2,000 years ago;

"If you find out Mashiach (The Messiah) has finally arrived while you are holding a tree, plant the tree first, only THEN can you greet Mashiach.

אִם הָיְתָה נְטִיעָה בְּתוֹךְ יָדָךְ וְיֹאמְרוּ לָּךְ "הֲרֵי לָךְ הַמָּשִׁיחַ", בּוֹא וּנְטַע אֶת הַנְטִיעָה וְאַחַר כָּךְ צֵא  וְהַקְבִּילוֹ

(אבות דרבי נתן ל"א ב)

The Great G"RA from Villna; sent students to Israel in the 1800's and told them.

"If only Hashem would grant me the merit to plant a FRUIT tree in Jerusalem, I can fulfill the commandment {When you come to the land plant FRUIT trees}"
