On Tu B’Shvat 1949, parents, brothers and sisters, commanders and friends, planted twenty-eight cypresses in memory of the warriors who fell in the battle for the conquest of the Fortress of Yesha in 1947.
The green, fresh seedlings will rise and become huge trees, the trees will stand as a protective wall for life that will bloom all around and will be a symbol of white testimony, which has grown eternal life for their people.

At the initiative of members and members of the Jewish National Fund, the grove was renewed in the spring of 1999 and young cypresses were planted there to complete the twenty-eighth.
