For Deeper Roots in the Land of Israel: Let's Continue Planting!

Thank you, cherished friends, for having helped us to plant well over 300 fruit trees in Israel.
The "Zo Artzeinu" organization and IsraelTrees.org have informed us that the double offer has been extended until Feb. 12, 2021 because the weather is still excellent for tree planting and next year is Shemitta (Sabbatical) Year when planting is not allowed. Let's not miss this opportunity to sink our roots deeper in the Land of Israel:

A Rare Opportunity to Plant Fruit Trees in Israel

Hashem is so fantastic! Just yesterday, I posted a full-length shiur about the importance of fulfilling the mitzvoth of the Land of Israel, especially with Tu B'Shvat a week from Thursday. After the shiur, I had this gnawing feeling at my heart. As a lover of the Land of Israel and a tree-fruit farmer who has planted hundreds, maybe thousands of trees all over Israel, I can't begin to explain the importance of planting fruit trees in settling our holy homeland. You see, a high-tech professional can work from his desktop or labtop anywhere, but a tree farmer has his hands, heart and entire life here in the Land of Israel. In fact, when you partner with a Torah-observant tree-fruit farmer in Israel, you also partner in the mitzoth of orlah, neta reva'i, trumah, maaser, shemittah and yishuv ha'aretz, settling the Land of Israel.

With amazing Divine Providence, my good friends at IsraelTrees.org, a branch of Zo Artzeinu, contacted me this morning and asked if I'd like to offer people the opportunity to plant fruit trees in the Land of Israel. They had to be kidding! Of course! Right now, farmers in Israel begin planting now for the upcoming Shmitta; you can share in this fantastic mitzva and in the blessing that goes along with it. But I made a deal with them - if anyone comes to them from my recommendation, they have to double the plantings. I don't care how they do it, but they agreed - a deal's a deal, and everyone's a winner. Here's your chance for a really meaningful Tu B'Shvat. When you order the trees, fill in the Promo Code box, "Lazer", and you'll get double the trees to your credit. Hashem says, "I will ordain My Blessing for you" (Leviticus 25:21); double the planting, double the Blessing!

Sharing the Load

By sharing the burden of life's difficulties, we create national unity. By creating national unity, we bring Moshiach and the full redemption of our people. Many people are asking how they can fulfill the mitzva of saying Kaddish for a deceased parent or loved one, when synagogues have been closed down because of the Coronavirus. Here's good news - Rabbi Lazer Brody, who is saying Kaddish anyway for his mother ob"m, will say Kaddish for you and it will count just as if you said it yourself. What's more, it won't cost you a cent. See today's podcast...
