Zo Artzeinu was founded in 1993 in order to help educate people about the importance of the land, trees, fruits, agriculture and the environment, as well as help safeguard and protect the land enabling it to flourish and grow.
Since then we have planted more FRUIT trees than any other organization. The trees not only beautify and settle the land, but provide a living and support for entire communities who work the land and take care of these trees and their fruits. They also give us the opportunity to fulfill numerous Mitzvot, Biblical commandments on the land, the trees and their fruits.
Planting FRUIT trees fulfills the Torah Mitzvah, (Biblical Commandment) to plant FRUIT trees when entering and returning to the land as stated in Leviticus 19:23 ויקרא
The Torah (Bible) also says:
"And I will bless those who bless you"(Genesis 12:3 בְּרֵאשִׁית)Iוַאֲבָרְכָה, מְבָרְכֶיךָ
Planting FRUIT trees brings a Blessing to the People and the Land!
We are endorsed by many prominent Rabbis and leaders.
We run school programs in the USA teaching students about fruit trees, Israel and the mitzvot, plus run community programs in the USA and group planting.
