‘And I will plant them upon their soil, Nevermore to be uprooted’

"We will not break, we cry and it hurts us, but we are strong," said Rabbi Ish-Ran, the grandfather of 3-day-old Amiad Israel, who was murdered when a terrorist shot and critically wounded his pregnant mother.

Join Israel365 in remembering Amiad Israel by planting a forest in his memory and honor in the Biblical heartland. The planting will take place on Friday, January 18.

Terrorists murdered 3-day-old Amiad Israel, whose name means, “My people are here forever,” in fulfillment of God’s promise.

PLANT A FOREST IN MEMORY OF AMIAD ISRAEL IN HONOR OF TU B’SHVAT

A great Jewish blessing is, "May you live until 120."  It is a blessing based on Genesis 6:3: "And the LORD said: 'My spirit shall not abide in man for ever, for that he also is flesh; therefore shall his days be a hundred and twenty years.'"

Amiad Israel had only 3 days on earth. But in that short time, his spirit unified the Jewish people and the world. Now, we will plant and maintain a forest near the site where he was killed and infuse the holy hills of the Shomron with new life.

In response to terrorism, we choose love ... WE CHOOSE LIFE

A pregnant woman was critically wounded and six others lightly or moderately injured in a drive-by shooting attack near the settlement of Ofra, which took place on the last night of Hanukkah.
Doctors delivered the baby of Shira and Amichai Ish-Ran prematurely due to the attack. He died three days later.

The parents named their baby Amiad Israel (My people are here forever).

Amiad would have been the couple’s first child.

PLEASE PLANT TREES OF LIFE IN HONOR OF AMIAD>>

At Amiad Israel's funeral, his grandfather, Haim Silberstein, recalled his joy at being informed by Shira and Amichai about the boy that would be his first grandchild.
"The seventh month and the excitement is increasing," Silberstein said. "Lighting the eighth candle of Hanukkah happily, traveling home and innocently waiting at the Ofra station. And then a bunch of bullets cut off the happiness, the expectation and the dreams. 

"A cruel enemy aimed his weapon at a pregnant woman because he wanted to uproot us from our land," he continued.

But the prophet Amos teaches:

"And I will plant them on their soil, Nevermore to be uprooted"

Israel365 is joining with the community of Ofra, the site of the terror attack that killed Amiad Israel, to plant a new forest - a symbol of life and prophecy fulfilled - in the community. The planting will take place on January 18.

A GIFT OF ANY SIZE  WILL MAKE YOUR PRESENCE FELT ON JANUARY 18, WHEN A GROUP OF LOVERS OF ISRAEL TAKE TO THE LAND AND PLANT THE FIRST TREES.

$120 symbolizes the Jewish blessing that one should live to be 120 years old. 
In the words of Amichai Ish-Ran, "They can shoot us, they can run us over with their vehicles, they can murder our children, but they will never succeed at breaking us."
