On May 5, 2013, Etz Hayim Synagogue, 1 ½ Hood Road, Derry, New Hampshire held a walk for Israel in celebration of its 65 birthday. It was done in conjunction with the Afikm Foundation’s world widewww.walktheland.org commemoration. At that time we distributed Sunflower Seed from Israel. Each package read: “these Israeli seeds; planted worldwide, symbolize the value that Israel places on life, and the innumerable contributions that this small country has made to all corners of our world. All in just 56 Years”.
` Peggy Tucker planted them in June in our New Hampshire garden and they now proudly welcome the New Year, 5774.
