Today is the start of Buy Israel Week, a project organized by online consumer discount site jdeal.com, several Jewish publications, Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, and the Manufacturers Association of Israel, among others.
Buy Israeli goods campaigns have been launched in response to the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which aims to tarnish and delegitimize the State of Israel. The 9th Annual Israeli Apartheid Weeks will be occurring around the world in late February and early March—including anti-Israel events, film screenings, and BDS initiatives. 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.
