"General Chauvel Olive Trees Incarnation"


לסיפור "תחייתו" של עץ הזית שנטע גנרל שובל ברחבת בית העם בשנת 1918

During Tu Bishvat 1918 General Harry Chauvel, the commander of the Australian forces, was invited to plant an olive tree opposite the town hall in Rehovot, the town where he had his headquarter. “Know that this is the greatest honor that I have ever received in my life” the general had stated. Later, at the end of the war, he returned to Rehovot to visit the tree he had planted, before returning to Australia.
