Tree Replanting

In the spring of 2014, the Israeli government uprooted hundreds of fruit trees from the Nassar family farm, the Tent of Nations, located south of Bethlehem in the West Bank. In February 2015, at the request of the family, nearly 30 Jewish activists from 4 countries traveled to their farm to help replant fields and sow seeds of creative, nonviolent activism.

Part of our work with this campaign was to ‘repurpose’ the JNF mission, which advances an exclusive and discriminatory approach towards land use in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories. We promote tree planting to enable Palestinian farmers and landowners to protect their private property and to reclaim land stolen by settlers and the Israeli government.
