For the second year in a row, eTeacher is going to plant a tree in the name of every student who signs up to one of its Modern or Biblical Hebrew courses. This campaign is launched adjacent to the Jewish holiday Tu Bishvat that marks the “new Year of the Trees” celebrated these days in Israel.
Planting trees in Israel is a time-honored tradition that has been carried out since the beginning of the previous century. Trees are planted by people from all over the world, including Israelis, to commemorate a loved one, to celebrate a special occasion, to maintain the country’s green lungs, to prevent global warming and to provide recreation areas for Israeli’s and visitors.
eTeacher, in collaboration with the Jewish National Fund (otherwise known as the Keren Kayemet LeYisrael) is offering this unique enrollment incentive to its students as a way to connect people from all over the world to Israel. Now, people who are interested in learning Hebrew can connect to Israel virtually through eTeacher’s online courses while they are connected also in spirit by having a tree planted in their name.
eTeacher will plant a tree in the name of every student who signs up to one of its online live Hebrew courses and will send the student an elegant tree planting certificate with the name of the honoree.
