Yep, The Olive Tree Forest

There's not much to write about the Olive Tree Forest. Pictures tell the whole story, don't they? - Well maybe thats not exactly true, but these pictures do.

"Rabbi Yehoshuah Ben Levi said: Why is Israel compared to an olive tree? Because just as the leaves of an olive tree do not fall off either in summer or winter. So, too, the Jewish people shall not be cast off, neither in this world nor in the World to Come."
              - Tractate Menachot 51b

The Jewish people are like olive oil - always rising atop. 

Sorry folks, us Jews are gonna be sticking around a long while!
