    Lord Sacks: gets his own forest

    British JNF will mark the Chief Rabbi’s peerage by planting a forest of 25,000 trees in Jerusalem in Lord Sacks’s name, it announced this week.

    Members of the Jewish community in Britain and the Commonwealth can participate either by buying a single tree for £10 or as many trees as they wish, in order to pay tribute to the Chief Rabbi.

    The name of every donor will be inscribed in a specially designed hand-written megillah, a copy of which will be presented to the Chief Rabbi at a dedication ceremony in Israel next February.

    JNF UK chairman Samuel Hayek congratulated Lord Sacks and called upon the Jewish community to join him in the celebration.

    He said: “The award of this peerage to the Chief Rabbi is indeed a great honour for the entire Jewish community, not only in the UK but also worldwide.

    “This project will bring together the whole community to celebrate the Chief Rabbi’s contribution to the Jewish community and society at large, while also helping to meet one of JNF’s key objectives of developing and making the land of Israel green.”
