Beach cleanup at the Yarkon River estuary!

December 26, 2010

A beautiful winter day at the Yarkon River

Yesterday Zalul was joined by members of Beit Simchat Torah from New York City at the Yarkon River in Tel Aviv for a beach cleanup. It was a gorgeous day and the participants enthusiasm made it even better! In less than an hour the banks of the Yarkon River looked much MUCH cleaner.

Thank you everyone for a great afternoon and for being so willing to get your hands dirty in the name of clean beaches and rivers!

We at Zalul wish you a happy and sweet New Year!

As one of your New Years resolutions we recommend a more “sustainable and greener lifestyle.”  Rosh Hashanah is a holiday that celebrates renewal as we prepare ourselves to repent for our sins.  The least we can do to begin this new cycle is to make one small green change.  For example, buy organic or local apples and honey to make the New Year sweet for you and the Environment.

Update On Jordan River Baptism Site

August 18, 2010


We just wanted to update you on an issue that we blogged about previously. The Qasar al-Yehud baptism site where Christians believe that Jesus descended into the Jordan River to be baptized has been declared safe by the Ministry of Health. After testing the Ministry has declared that levels of fecal bacteria are below harmful levels.  While this is good for pilgrims and the Jordan River alike, the Jordan River is still far from clean and we should all make efforts to keep it as clean as possible.
