Samaritan’s Corner stands in support of Israel, so it was an honor for us to join with the My Olive Tree project in conjunction with the Israel Nature and Parks Authority and plant an olive tree in the Silwan Valley, or the King’s Valley within the city of Jerusalem. This 10-15 year old tree will produce fruit each year that creates job opportunities for locals. The olives will be processed into olive oil products, and the revenue will go straight into humanitarian aid projects throughout Israel.
– Psalm 122
“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they that love thee shall prosper. Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces. For my brethren and companions’ sakes, I will say now, peace be within thee. For the sake of the House of the Lord our God I will seek thy good.”
