For a contribution of only $15 you can participate in the Dedication of the Christian Forest on Mt.

The Christian Communities in the Holy Land need and want the Christian Communities outside the Holy Land to be with them.  To engage with them spiritually and emotionally.  To care and to show it.  We ask you to think of the Christian Communities in the Holy Land when you, a loved one or friend celebrate Christian life cycle and other events, such as weddings, graduations, confirmations, baptisms, Christenings, or anniversaries for example, and to use those occasions to participate in the Dedication of the Christian Forest on Mt. Tabor.

The event that you celebrate with your support will be memorialized both in a beautiful certificate that we will send to you as well as in a Book of Dedications which will be on public display in the Holy Land.  You can visit it and the Christian Forest you helped to dedicate when you visit the Holy Land.

His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light" [Matthew 17: 1-13].
