"Plant trees on which we can hang Jews," was the message that Hanoch Sigmund Titman, chairman of the umbrella organization for the Central European Jews at the time he received and sent to his mailbox in Tel Aviv in 1978 – in response to solicitation for funds to plant trees in Israel. The note was penned by neo-Nazi.

Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael – Jewish National Fund (KKL-JNF) Titman's grandson, Avi Amir.

According to KKL-JNF, the letter was intended for Jewish communities abroad in order to raise funds for KKL, but reach and neo-Nazi organization instead.

"We hope you plant a lot of trees that will be a place to hang all the Jews," the letter states. “Jew, it has come to our attention that you and other professional liars like you want to plant and forest in the Jerusalem hills commemorate your race – members who were supposedly murdered by us.

"The truth is that you are still living in West Germany, and you will find a large enough forest to be found in West Germany, we will come and visit you."

Upon receipt of the letter, KKL-JNF Chairman Daniel Atar said that while the letter was sent many years ago, we are seeing similar anti-Semitic trends today, including the murder of Jews.

"The way to answer antisemitism," said Atar, "is the millions of Jews living today in thriving, successful Jewish state."
