Special tree plantings for the Jewish festival of Tu Bishvat have been held in the United Arab Emirates, with which Israel normalized ties in late 2020 in a landmark US-brokered deal.

The event is held to celebrate a year since the establishment of Jewish Educational Campus in the UAE, an organization that educates about 100 children from the fledgling Jewish community.

It is held in cooperation with Israel’s KKL-JNF and in the presence of Israel’s consul general in Dubai Ilan Sztulman, KKL-JNF managing director of the Israeli pavilion at Expo 2020 Nave Shachar, and the leader of the Jewish community Rabbi Levi Duchman.
