Ben-Zion would locate palm species on his trips and bring them to the Land of Israel, but his meetings with the Jewish communities in the different places he visited were also important.

These interesting photographs were found in the albums of Aharonik Israeli, Ben-Zion's son, and we would like to thank him.

Have a look on the photos:
