Passover is one of the most important Jewish Feasts. It is a festival the Lord asked His people to observe and remember—forever.

“Therefore say to the children of Israel: ‘I am the Lord; I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, I will rescue you from their bondage, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great judgments. I will take you as My people, and I will be your God. Then you shall know that I am the Lord your God who brings you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.’”—Exodus 6:6-7

The cups of wine at the Passover Seder tell of the historical redemptive story of God’s chosen people. Wine is a royal drink that symbolizes freedom, as in the Israelites exodus out of Egyptian slavery.

Wine and vineyards are mentioned throughout Scripture in reference to freedom, abundance, celebration, blessings, and restoration prophecies for Israel.

The Passover…
Passover begins on the 15th of Nissan (Jewish calendar). This year it begins at sundown on March 30th and ends the evening of April 7th. It has great historical and agricultural significance. Not only is it a remembrance of the Israelites’ freedom from Egyptian bondage, but also the beginning of their harvest season.

Today, as we look at the story of Passover, we can see the Lord’s faithfulness to protect and provide.

The Four Cups of Wine Represent God’s Deliverance…
The Lord uses four expressions of deliverance for the Hebrew people describing their exodus out of Egypt.

I will bring you out…
I will rescue you…
I will redeem you…
I will take you as My people…
At the Seder meal, each person is given a cup, from which they drink four cups of wine.

Believers Celebrate the Passover Seder…
The cups of wine are drank at specific times throughout the Seder meal and represent different Covenant Promises.

The first is the Cup of Sanctification. “Blessed are You, LORD our God, Ruler of the universe, who creates the fruit of the vine.” This is then followed by questions discussed about the significance of the night and why the traditional foods are eaten.
The second is the Cups of the Plagues. This cup symbolizes the freedom we have from fear of all sickness, disease, and disasters and accompanies the lamb shank and the egg.
The bone commemorates the lamb sacrifice made the evening that the ancient Hebrews fled Egypt. It also refers to the outstretched arm of the Lord, as He saved the Jewish people out of slavery.

The egg reminds us of the sovereignty of the Almighty God.

The third is the Cup of Redemption and Healing Released. A blessing is said over the bread and the wine. “Blessed are You, LORD our God, Ruler of the universe, who brings forth bread from the earth. Blessed are You, LORD our God, Ruler of the universe, who creates the fruit of the vine.”
The fourth is the Cup of Praise. It is a time to proclaim God’s promises written in Exodus 23.
As we remember that wine flows throughout God’s Word in numerous ways of remembrance, we can also look forward to the prophecies of how wine is used in the restoration for the Hebrew nation.

The Lord promises restoration of the land, and also the filling of the desert with vineyards that would provide wine and fruit for His people.

Israel Will be Restored…
“‘On that day I will raise up the tabernacle of David, which has fallen down, and repair its damages;
I will raise up its ruins, and rebuild it as in the days of old; that they may possess the remnant of Edom,
and all the Gentiles who are called by My name,’ says the Lord who does this thing. ‘Behold, the days are coming,’ says the Lord, ‘When the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him who sows seed; the mountains shall drip with sweet wine, and all the hills shall flow with it. I will bring back the captives of My people Israel; they shall build the waste cities and inhabit them; they shall plant vineyards and drink wine from them; they shall also make gardens and eat fruit from them. I will plant them in their land, and no longer shall they be pulled up from the land I have given them,’ says the Lord your God.”—Amos 9:11-15

When we sow seeds of restoration into the Jewish people and their land, we are proclaiming a belief in the covenant promises of the Lord. In biblical times, vineyards were incredibly important to people. It was part of their livelihood. God’s Word show that this act of harvesting will come full circle and that He will plant the Israelite people back in their land.

Partnership in Restoration…
In the book of Isaiah, there is a picture of God clearing away the stones and planting choice vines on a fertile hillside. It is God here doing the work, asking His people to partner with Him.

Because of this blessed partnership, the Lord would bless, sustain, and be a watchtower to His people. He has asked us to partner with Him throughout history and into the future.

Vineyard Restoration Is Part of Prophecy…
The prophecies of Amos 9 are being put into action now. My Olive Tree has been blessed to plant olive trees, and now you have an opportunity to participate in the next part of the convent—to restore unto the Jewish people their vineyards.

God holds His promise to restore all things. Will you be a part of this biblical prophecy, and plant a vine in the Negev this Passover?

During this appointed time of the Passover Feast, you have an opportunity to embrace the symbolic significance and biblical prophecies of grapes, vineyards, and wine.

Israel is a land of promises and dreams. Before Israel became the nation that it is today, the Jewish people dreamed of aliyah to their #Holy land. They spoke their dream in the saying, “Next year in Jerusalem! Next year in #Jerusalem!”

It took 400 plus years to see the growth from Jacob’s family of 70 to a nation of people well over a million. During this time, even though most of those years were under Egyptian oppression, there was always the dream of the return to their promised land.

That dream developed from the promise #God gave to #Abraham, #Isaac, and Jacob, and when the time was right, God raised up Moses to lead His people out of #Egypt.

When they reached the threshold of the Promised Land, #Moses sent out twelve men to spy throughout the land. They came back with an amazing abundance of produce—not only amazing in quantity, but also amazing in size!

“Then Moses sent them to spy out the land of Canaan, and said to them, ‘Go up this way into the South, and go up to the mountains, and see what the land is like: whether the people who dwell in it are strong or weak, few or many; whether the land they dwell in is good or bad; whether the cities they inhabit are like camps or strongholds; whether the land is rich or poor; and whether there are forests there or not. Be of good courage. And bring some of the fruit of the land.’ Now the time was the season of the first ripe grapes… Now they departed and came back to Moses and Aaron and all the congregation of the children of Israel in the Wilderness of Paran, at Kadesh; they brought back word to them and to all the congregation, and showed them the fruit of the land. Then they told him, and said: ‘We went to the land where you sent us. It truly flows with milk and honey, and this is its fruit.’”—Numbers 13:17-20, 26-27

What did they see? They saw forests, vineyards, fruit trees, and much more.

Believers across the world have united to reach out and assist Holocaust survivors in recent years. As these survivors age, they face many trials: poverty, medical issues, lack of food, as well as continued emotional heartache. They remember their difficult past while still faced with an impoverished future.

There is a call to Believers to comfort those weak in spirit…
“I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”—Acts 20:35

Supporting destitute Holocaust survivors does have a sense of urgency. While many have shown support in the past, there are unfortunately still some who ignore the plight of these survivors today. Every day a Holocaust survivor dies, but we have an opportunity to remember and honor these lives now.

Why to join the effort?
Honor their memory. It is our hope at My Olive Tree to give Survivors a lasting legacy in a special part of the King’s Valley by honoring those who were murdered during the Holocaust.
Leave a legacy. Legacy is a deeply rooted part of Jewish culture. The idea of leaving a legacy is common in many cultures, but in Jewish culture it encompasses the idea that tradtions and faith are passed down from generation to generation. When a tree is planted to honor those who lost their lives, it honors the survivors as well.
Fulfill prophecy. When you partner with My Olive Tree you are taking part in physical prophecy fulfillment. You are fulfilling the God-inspired words of Amos and Isaiah that speak of Israel’s prophetic destiny.
“I will bring back the captives of My people Israel; they shall build the waste cities and inhabit them;
they shall plant vineyards and drink wine from them; they shall also make gardens and eat fruit from them. I will plant them in their land, and no longer shall they be pulled up from the land I have given them,’ says the Lord your God.”—Amos 9:14-15

“For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in.”—Romans 11:25

God desires for YOU to be a part of rebuilding Israel’s physical and spiritual restoration…
In Jewish culture trees have a rich history and significance.

Olive trees are mentioned all throughout scripture. They are used symbolically as peace, prosperity, beauty and the relationship between God and His people.

“But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God; I will trust in the mercy of God forever and ever.”—Psalm 52:8

“For if you were cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and were grafted contrary to nature into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these, who are natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?”—Romans 11:24

Consider today how your gift can impact a nation, a soul and leave a lasting legacy for generations.

As many of you know, we are about to enter a time of the #Jewish New Year—#RoshHashanah 5778. At a time when many Believers are on a journey back to their faith’s roots, they begin to discover the #spiritual significance of this new season. What does this year—this time of new beginnings—mean for you?

The Head of the Year, Rosh Hashanah, is marked by a sounding blast from the shofar. The festival is observed for two days beginning on the 1st of Tishrei. This year, we begin our celebration on the eve of September 20th. This is a time to celebrate and remember the creation of Adam and Eve—symbolizing the relationship of man and woman together with their #God.

The Year 5778…

Nothing is by accident, as God’s design is perfect and intentional. This year—5778—we take a look at what these numbers represent…

The number 5 representing “grace”
• The number 7 representing “perfection”
• The number 8 representing “new beginnings”
As Believers, we can look forward to this year of grace, perfection, and new beginnings, as we are born-again and a new creation in Yeshua, just as the number eight represents.

Traditional Observances during Rosh Hashanah…

Bread or apple slices are dipped in honey, expressing a hope of a sweet new year.
Greeting others with blessings, “May you be inscribed and sealed for a good year.”
A special prayer is said called Tashlich, “You shall cast their sins in the depths of the sea.” This is traditionally done near a body of water symbolizing God’s authority and power.
Though these are Jewish traditions, we as Believers, understanding our roots, viewing these customs as a beautiful picture of hope we have in the promises of God and the return of the Messiah.

Rosh Hashanah’s shofar blast is a call of repentance. This is followed by the Days of Awe, which is a 10-day period of opportunity to mend one’s way before judgment is “sealed” on Yom Kippur, according to Jewish tradition.

Tradition also holds that an action of “teshuvah, tefilah and tzedakah”—repentance, prayer and good deeds—impact the decree of freedom. This time of year is a reminder to enter the new year with pure hearts, clean hands and healed relationships.

“Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another…”—Romans 12:10

Start off the New Year with hope and love…

Decree your release of freedom and inheritance by beginning this New Year by sowing seeds of hope and love—as one who desires to lead a reconciled relationship with the Father. The Head of the Year is also an opportunity to sow seeds into the land that was promised to our spiritual forefathers. Together, we can continue to bless the people of Israel and replenish and bloom the Promised Land.

When you sponsor an olive tree you are literally putting your roots deep into the Holy Land—blessing Israel, and claiming that your inheritance will be released and returned.

We invite you to begin this Head of the Year by sowing a special gift into the nation of Israel! Please click here to learn more!

At My Olive Tree we base our entire organization on leaving a legacy for our children’s children, specifically in the nation of Israel. Why is that you might ask?

Why Israel?

It is our belief that the nation of Israel is the apple of God’s eye. We read this throughout the scriptures. For example, here in Deuteronomy it is recorded…

“He found him in a desert land and in the wasteland, a howling wilderness; He encircled him, He instructed him, He kept him as the apple of His eye.”—Deuteronomy 32:10

It is evident that God has always had a special place in His heart for this tiny nation…

“For thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘He sent Me after glory, to the nations which plunder you; for he who touches you touches the apple of His eye.’”—Zechariah 2:8

A Covenant Agreement Between God and Abraham…

In befriending Abraham, the ancient patriarch of the Hebrew people, God made covenant promises with him that He would do mighty things through Abraham’s descendants…

“And I will make your descendants multiply as the stars of Heaven; I will give to your descendants all these lands; and in your seed, all the nations of the earth shall be blessed; because Abraham obeyed My voice and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes, and My laws.”—Genesis 26:4-5

“Get out of your country, from your family and from your father’s house, to a land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”—Genesis 12:1-3

A covenant agreement is a legal and binding promise between two parties that states that the two entities become as one unit, rather than operating as two. This is a serious commitment, and the punishment for breaking that commitment in biblical times was most consequential. The offending party could be put to death, and the bond would be broken forever.

What is so interesting about God’s covenant with Abraham is that He understood the fragility of man. In other words, He knew that Abraham would fail at his end of the agreement. So, God, to ensure that the promises He made would be fulfilled with both Abraham and the coming generations to come, not only took His own place in the agreement, but He chose to stand in for Abraham, as well.

Here in Genesis 15:17 we see as God walks through the ceremonial process alone that typically would have been split between the two parties…

“And it came to pass, when the sun went down and it was dark, that behold, there appeared a smoking oven and a burning torch that passed between those pieces.”

He then went on to say this…

“On the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying: ‘To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the River Euphrates—the Kenites, the Kenezzites, the Kadmonites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Rephaim, the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.’”—Genesis 15:18-20

Yes, But How Does that Apply to Modern-Day Israel?

This is an age-old question. Many church doctrines subscribe to ideologies that replace Israel with the arrival of the Church. And while we do not have time to go into that here, at My Olive Tree we do not subscribe to these beliefs. We understand that God’s Word is living and that it is true. That when God makes a promise to us, or to a given people group, He is NOT a man that He can lie. It’s physically impossible for Him to do so.

That said, the nation of Israel, following the death of Abraham, experienced many hardships. Much of this had to do with the fact that they chose to walk away from the covenant promises of their Father Abraham, away from his God, in exchange for idol worship. There were consequences for those decisions. God never stopped loving the Hebrew children, but He refused to violate their free will.

It All Comes Full Circle…

As we study the ancient Hebrew prophets we see a consistent theme. Although God knew that choices would be made that would separate His people from their promise, He never gave up on them. In fact, God created a plan within a plan to not only bring salvation to the Jews, but to the Gentiles, as well…

“I ask then: Did God reject His people? By no means! I am an Israelite myself, a descendant of Abraham, from the tribe of Benjamin… Again I ask: Did they stumble so as to fall beyond recovery? Not at all! Rather, because of their transgression, salvation has come to the Gentiles to make Israel envious. But if their transgression means riches for the world, and their loss means riches for the Gentiles, how much greater riches will their full inclusion bring! I am talking to you Gentiles. Inasmuch as I am the apostle to the Gentiles, I take pride in my ministry in the hope that I may somehow arouse my own people to envy and save some of them. For if their rejection brought reconciliation to the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead? If the part of the dough offered as firstfruits is holy, then the whole batch is holy; if the root is holy, so are the branches. If some of the branches have been broken off, and you, though a wild olive shoot, have been grafted in among the others and now share in the nourishing sap from the olive root, do not consider yourself to be superior to those other branches. If you do, consider this: You do not support the root, but the root supports you. You will say then, ‘Branches were broken off so that I could be grafted in.’ Granted. But they were broken off because of unbelief, and you stand by faith. Do not be arrogant, but tremble.”—Romans 11:1, 11-20

So Now What?

We at My Olive Tree believe that the prophets of old, empowered through God’s Spirit, spoke out the very future of the nation of Israel…

“And in that day it shall be that living waters shall flow from Jerusalem, half of them toward the eastern sea and half of them toward the western sea; in both summer and winter it shall occur.”—Zechariah 14:8

“‘Therefore behold, the days are coming’ says the Lord, ‘that it shall no more be said, “The Lord lives who brought up the children of Israel from the land of Egypt,” but, “The Lord lives who brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north and from the lands where He had driven them.” For I will bring them back into their land which I gave to their fathers.’”—Jeremiah 16:14-15

Pay Attention to the ‘Untils’…

“Therefore Israel will be abandoned until the time when she who is in labor bears a son, and the rest of his brothers return to join the Israelites.”—Micah 5:3

“They will fall by the sword and will be taken as prisoners to all the nations. Jerusalem will be trampled on by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.”—Luke 21:24

“Therefore Israel will be abandoned until the time when she who is in labor bears a son, and the rest of his brothers return to join the Israelites.”—Micah 5:3

“Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, ‘Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?’ And I said, ‘Here am I. Send me!’ He said, ‘Go and tell this people: “Be ever hearing, but never understanding; be ever seeing, but never perceiving.” Make the heart of this people calloused; make their ears dull and close their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts, and turn and be healed.’ Then I said, ‘For how long, Lord?’ And He answered: ‘Until the cities lie ruined and without inhabitant, until the houses are left deserted and the fields ruined and ravaged, until the Lord has sent everyone far away and the land is utterly forsaken. And though a tenth remains in the land, it will again be laid waste. But as the terebinth and oak leave stumps when they are cut down, so the holy seed will be the stump in the land.’”—Isaiah 6:8-13

“I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers and sisters, so that you may not be conceited: Israel has experienced a hardening in part until the full number of the Gentiles has come in.”—Romans 11:25

“Heaven must receive Him until the time comes for God to restore everything, as He promised long ago through His holy prophets.”—Acts 3:21

“But you, Daniel, roll up and seal the words of the scroll until the time of the end. Many will go here and there to increase knowledge.”—Daniel 12:4

“For I tell you, you will not see me again until you say, ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.’”—Matthew 23:39

“Know and understand this: From the time the word goes out to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Anointed One, the ruler, comes, there will be seven ‘sevens,’ and sixty-two ‘sevens.’ It will be rebuilt with streets and a trench, but in times of trouble.”—Daniel 9:25

Biblical prophecy specifically points to a coming day where the Hebrew children will return to their homeland as a thriving nation. God intended to leave a legacy to Abraham and all His future generations. At My Olive Tree we plant trees in the desert with the expectation that through our efforts to partner with God in this plan, that we, too, are leaving a legacy to our own children and for generations to come.

We plant trees that provide jobs. We desire to bless the nation of Israel and use the proceeds from the harvests of our trees to sow humanitarian aid into the lives of the widow and the orphans living in Israel.

Through this unique partnership with the nation of Israel we can take care of children living in foster care. Through these proceeds these children are ensured a safe home with resources that will allow them a future and a hope. Over 400 Holocaust Survivors are given greater quality of life because of our olive groves. Lone soldiers, who are the sole breadwinners of their families, are offered much needed groceries to help support their families often dire needs.

If you would like to learn more about this unique opportunity to play a part in biblical prophecy, leaving a legacy for your family and those living in Israel, please contact us at My Olive Tree today!

Olive Oil Times recently reported that obesity in teenagers could easily be curbed by simply increasing the intake of foods found within the Mediterranean diet.

This has already been proven true when tested with adults, but very few studies have been done regarding these young adults.

However, Flora Bacopoulou, of National and Kapodistrian University of Athens recently stated, “I vehemently believe that the Mediterranean diet is the best diet possible for adolescents—something already proved for adults on a global level.”

While the studies are few, recent research in Greece is proving that the same results experienced by adults are also true for teens who adhere closely to the Mediterranean diet. The study, “Mediterranean Diet Decreases Adolescent Waist Circumference” appeared in the European Journal of Clinical Investigation. It consisted of 1,610 young people—age range included those between the years of 12 and 17.

The study was made to specifically measure the reduction of child obesity and lasted for a period of 6 months. While a change in diet was a major component, students assigned to the program also committed to regular exercise. Teenagers were educated on healthy body image, along with healthy eating behaviors.

Bacopoulou explained: “For adolescent health, the scientific literature is scarce, let alone the fact that Med diet is constantly being abandoned by young people. Schools are designated places for promoting intervention in order to prevent childhood and adolescent obesity. In our study we placed heavy emphasis on nutritional education, physical activity and body image awareness, targeting all different levels of influence on adolescent health, their parents, teachers, and school/community health staff. Such interventions using a systems-level approach, as well as interactions and relationships between levels, show the greatest impact for primary prevention.”

At My Olive Tree we are greatly encouraged by research like this, as extra virgin olive oil is one of the main components to this nutrient rich lifestyle.

However, a recent study shared by CNBC stated that, “The second study found 17 percent of children and teens are obese and 5.8 percent were extremely obese. Obesity in kids is measured a little bit differently—it’s how heavy they are compared to other kids the same age and height. Those weighing more than 95 percent of kids the same age are considered obese.

“Obesity has decreased a little among the youngest children, the researchers noted, but it’s still going up among teens.”

While evidence continues to point toward replacing the standard American diet with the Mediterranean, many children across the United States continue to struggle with weight gain—without a consistent commitment to changes in eating habits and exercise, the issue persists.

Yet, we know how difficult it can be to make major lifestyle changes when confronted with a busy schedule. At My Olive Tree we’re not only committed to keeping you up-to-date on current olive oil news and events, but we also love to hunt down extra tasty recipes that are both delicious and healthy for the whole family. It is our hope that in doing so, you and your family will begin to see the greater results as you commit to developing healthier habits!

Here is a great recipe that is perfect for the entire family! Instead of that weekly pizza habit… try replacing it with these delicious Caprese Style Portobellos found at

Caprese Style Portobellos


Large portobello mushroom caps, gills removed
Cherry tomatoes, halved
Shredded or fresh mozzarella (although I’ve tried both I prefer the dryer shredded version for this because of the moisture factor seeping out)
Fresh basil
Olive oil

Heat oven to 400 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with foil for easy clean up.
Brush the caps and rims with olive oil on each mushroom.
Slice cherry or grape tomatoes in half, place in a bowl, drizzle with olive oil. Add chopped basil, salt and pepper. Let it sit for a few minutes to let the flavors meld.
Place your cheese on the bottom of the mushroom cap, spoon on the tomato basil mixture and bake until cheese melts and mushrooms are cooked but not overcooked.

In this scripture Jesus tells us that even the smallest faith-like action can be used mightily of God.

“I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”—Matthew 17:20-21

Bearing fruit for God’s Kingdom is all about leaving a legacy. How can we sow our Savior’s love into the hearts and souls of others for God’s Kingdom?

At My Olive Tree we are honored to be a part of a project right now that is doing this very action. We have gathered 227 names of victims of the Holocaust and are making a choice to remember and honor them. These very lives that were thrown aside years ago are so precious in God’s sight. They are precious in ours, as well.

April 24, 2017 is Holocaust Memorial Day. It is our goal to set off this project by having each of the 227 lives remembered and an olive tree planted in the breathtaking area of the King’s Valley in Jerusalem. Your faith can bear much fruit for this legacy, as well as a survivor living today. These precious lives of yesterday longed to leave a legacy in their homeland and could not. You can do this for them!

When you sponsor a tree you also are giving a beautiful gift to a survivor today. A warm winter blanket is given to a Holocaust survivor with your sponsorship. When they pick up the blanket on a cold winter day, they will remember the love and honor that was shown to them and their family from you and your family.

A gift of $177 will plant an olive tree to honor a victim’s memory, provide warmth to a survivor today, and you personally will receive a gift. You will receive a Star of David pendant and a certificate with the name of the Holocaust victim you sponsored.

When we allow our faith to be open to God’s Spirit and used for His purpose, we know that we will see Him at work. Partner with us today to honor these lives and see God’s mighty hand restore the nation of Israel. to sponsor a memory and leave a legacy.

This practical way to bring forth fruit for God’s Kingdom can show others Christ’s love. This is also a chance to tell others of this amazing opportunity to spread love across the globe. Share with others how God has blessed you and used you to bless others.

Plant a small seed and see a mighty tree grown in the Holy Land. [CLICK HERE] to learn more about this legendary project. Thank you for remembering.

The Holocaust was possibly the most horrific event in recent history. Six million plus Jewish people were gassed, tortured and humiliated in ways we cannot even begin to understand. At My Olive Tree we have a heart for the Jewish people. We exist to bring hope, restoration and renewal to the Jewish people and their land, and to give glory to God through the entire process.

The Bible has many references of how and why we should remember events in history. We remember so we do not forget. We remember to bring honor to those lost and to their families. We remember in love, because God remembers and loves us.

“Remember those in prison, as if you were there yourself. Remember also those being mistreated, as if you felt their pain in your own bodies.”—Hebrews 13:3

We plant to remember the past when people like Zigmond Alder, Judith Schwed and Jacob Unger did not have a voice, or a Jewish homeland. We plant for the future of the Jewish nation.

At My Olive Tree we remember Zigmond Alder, a seven-year-old boy born in 1936 in Belgium. He was gassed in Auschwitz. We remember Jacob Unger, who was born in 1871 in Poland. He was gassed at Sobibor at 72-years-old. These Jewish people had families, friends and histories.

As part of The King’s Valley Project in Jerusalem, My Olive Tree has a heart to plant 227 trees in remembrance of 227 Jewish people who were brutally killed. Our heart is to remember these precious lives that were created by God.

If we do not remember true history, a false narrative will be remembered.

Let us not forget friends, that as Believers, we owe our roots to the Jewish faith. God is clear in His Word that He has a place for both His chosen people and those adopted into His family. While we may share a different linage, we all have hope in the One True God.

Yom HaShoah is ‘Holocaust Remembrance Day.’ This occasion is to commemorate the lives and heroism of the six million plus Jewish people who died in the Holocaust between 1933 and 1945. Yom HaShoah is on the 27th day of Nisan, and this year falls on April 24th. We need your help. We want to commemorate the list of 227 names of people to start this special program. Our goal is to plant one tree for each name in the honored King’s Valley in Jerusalem.

Your gift of $177 plants a tree in the name of these victims—leaving a legacy that will not be forgotten. This gift not only leaves a legacy in history, but provides comfort and warmth to a survivor, now! When you give, a blanket will be given to a survivor of the Holocaust. This shows them love, compassion and honor; and that they will not be forgotten.

We ask you to prayerfully consider remembering these beloved lives today.

Bless the #Jewish people and their land and be blessed!

Zigmond Alder was born in 1936 in Belgium. He was gassed in Auschwitz at 7 years old.

Judith Schwed was born in 1932 in Hungary. She was gassed in Auschwitz at 12 years old.

Jacob Unger was born in 1871 in Poland. He was gassed at Sobibor at 72 years old.

These are just three names from a list of millions of victims of the Holocaust.

They were considered inferior. They were a problem that had to be solved.

Slowly stripped of their rights, citizenship and belongings, their segregation and forced assimilation were only the first steps toward creating a greater Germany free from Jews. In the end, annihilation was deemed the only final solution.
