The memory of trees

Click to enlarge
This picture above was just e-mailed to my inbox. The Jewish National Fund/Keren Kayemet invites us all to donate a tree to be planted at the Kennedy Memorial.

The memorial, circled in this photo taken from my village, is in the Aminadav Forest.
I have hiked up to it several times. It is a quiet place of solitude.
It was built in 1966 in memory of President John F. Kennedy.
Please see the close-up picture of Yad Kennedy in my post of last November.
One tree is $18, probably because 18 is the numerical equivalent of the Hebrew letters chet and yod, which together spell "chai," meaning LIFE.
I promise to go up and visit your tree if you plant one.

I'll certainly consider spending $18. Senator Kennedy wasn't perfect but he accomplished much.

That is such a lovely idea.

What a lovely idea!


(the trees I planted as a child must be big by now!)
