Those Kosher Green Thumbs...

One cool thing about Israel is that the people (at least the cool ones anyway) are very passionate about the environment. In fact, Israeli's are so passionate that they are replanting some of the trees destroyed because of the previous war with Hezbollah in Lebanon.

(Israel Today) A group of 550 Jews from all over the world gathered recently for a massive tree planting event in the Naftali Mountains forest in northern Israel. A large part of the lush green forest was burned down during the war in Lebanon this summer after being hit numerous times by Katyusha rockets fired by Hizballah in Lebanon.

The tree planting event was the culmination of the "Leading Up North" project, an unprecedented project in scope, where 550 youths and students from all over the world arrived in Israel for a period of 10 days.

I guess when I get the opportunity to travel back to Israel (hopefully sometime this year) I'll have to check out this region, as well as the forests in the area.

Not to mention the falafels. ;-)
