The pomegranate has always been a symbol of beauty; its unique shape is a favorite design element, appearing on the priestly garments and on the pillars at the entrance to the Temple in Jerusalem, as well as featuring in many forms of artwork to this day. The special fruit is one of the seven agricultural species indigenous to the Land of Israel (as seen in Deuteronomy 8:8). Help Israel365 perpetuate the beauty of the Holy Land’s fruits by planting trees and vineyards across the hills of Judea and Samaria. Now when you donate a garden, you will receive a beautiful printed certificate to present to friends and family that you were a part of prophetic fulfillment.

Hello Israel365 Team, I think it’s a wonderful website in every way. It’s vibrant and informative and spiritual too. You certainly know how to reach out to everyone. I can see why we are commanded to pray for the peace of Jerusalem – I do this every day, and pray for G-d’s shalom to be with each IDF soldier, watching the borders, buildings, towns and cities. May the Almighty have that Pillar of Cloud handy should it be needed for another miracle! Praying for positive changes now in Israel. Love and prayers to you all, Shabbat Shalom. – Myriam
