On Tuesday, November 30, anti-Israel activists in New York City plan to demonstrate and call for boycotts of stores that sell Israeli products. This action is just one of many organized by the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement aiming to tarnish and delegitimize the State of Israel. In response, members of the Jewish community have designated the same day as BIG (Buy Israeli Goods) Day.
Hadassah maintains its long-standing policy against all forms of organized boycotts, opposing destructive actions in favor of constructive dialogue in order to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and pursue a future of peace in the Middle East.
