JNF UK have dedicated 70 trees in an avenue in Be’er Sheva in honour of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee.
JNF UK has planted millions of trees across Israel, turning barren wastelands into thriving forests. Our urban forestation projects focus on the planting of mature trees in towns, cities, and communities across Israel’s Negev, beautifying the area, providing shelter as well helping to reduce the effects of global warming.
In 2022 the Queen became the first British Monarch to celebrate 70 years of dedicated and unstinting service to the people of the United Kingdom, the British Overseas Territories and the Commonwealth.
Samuel Hayek, Chairman of JNF UK commented “The Queen has given her blessing and support to numerous projects in Israel over many years, and JNF UK is delighted and honoured to celebrate this extraordinary and historic milestone with a special tribute to her unprecedented and remarkable reign”.
