Plant a tree for the Jubilee

Plant a tree for the Jubilee

Buy a tree and be part of the United Synagogue's first Jewish communal forest.

To mark the Queen’s Jubilee, the United Synagogue is collaborating with the Woodland Trust to plant Jewish communal groves of trees as our gift to Her Majesty The Queen.

We are inviting all of our members and the wider community to buy trees as part of The Queen’s Green Canopy project. Every tree bought by our members will be planted together in allocated groves within a new, Woodland Trust wood, in Norfolk, creating a unique Jewish environmental legacy. The wood can be visited by all and will be a fantastic future educational resource for our youth and wider community.

The Trees, bought online, will be selected, planted and maintained by the Woodland Trust to maximise the ecological benefits. Members from the same United Synagogue community who collectively buy 750+ trees will have their trees planted together in an specially allocated grove, named after their shul. Trees can be bought in any number, as gifts, in someone else's name or as a memorial. Confirmation and a downloadable certificate will be provided for every purchase. 

The United Synagogue aims to plant 37,000 trees over 3 years – one for every US member.
