For the upcoming Sukkot holiday, (KKL) will distribute free Sukkah roofing (S'chach) to the public. The distribution will take place in the northern forests of Segev, Carmel Beach, and Ben Shemen Forest in the central region. This is a long-standing tradition aimed at assisting residents in building their Sukkahs. Additionally, it aims to prevent the unauthorized cutting of S'chach, which can harm the environment.

"As every year, Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael participates in the joy of the Sukkot holiday and distributes Sukkah roofing to the public in honor of the holiday," stated Yaron Ochayon, Head of Land Development at KKL. "You are all invited to the distribution points in the northern Segev Forest and Ben Shemen Forest in the central region to receive free Sukkah roofing. This way, we can celebrate the holiday in a kosher manner, preserve the environment, and prevent unauthorized tree cutting in the forests."
