CANCELLED BECAUSE OF THE WHEATHER: Saturday Feb. 6: Olive Tree Planting at the Bedouin Village of Al `Arakib
The popular committee of Al-Arakib village and the `Hakara` (recognition) forum invite you to join in the planting of olive trees at the village on Saturday, February 6.

Meeting points and times are 9:00 AM at the El-Al terminal near Tel Aviv`s Arlozoroff train station or 10:30 AM at Lehavim Junction heading south. The activity is family-friendly.

Background: after the people of Al-Arakib were driven off their lands in the early 1950`s, the land - tens of square kilometers - was confiscated by the state. Now some of these lands are leased to the JNF for tree planting, even though the residents` ownership claims are still pending in court.

The tree-planting day is part of a joint campaign to stop the land robbery and return the land to its rightful owners.

We plant olive trees in order to nourish.
