Buy Israel Week 2013

February 25, 2013

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.

Learn more and show your support for Israel today!  

Buy Israel Week will take place from February 25 through March 3. For additional information, online deals and listings of Israeli goods visit www.buyisraelweek.com and www.buyisraelgoods.org.

Thank your elected officials for supporting Israel and urge them to maintain that commitment.

Step Up for Israel will be offering free online streaming of the award-winning documentary Israel Inside: How a Small Nation Makes a Big Difference through March 17th. If you'd like to host a screening of Israel Inside in your area contact andrea@jerusalemOnlineU.com

Israelcalendar.org, sponsored by the American-Israeli Cooperative Enterprise (AICE) and a partner website of the Jewish Virtual Library, is also promoting February as American Israel Friendship Month.

Stand with Israel in your community—attend pro-Israel rallies, send letters to the editor, and promote Israel on social media. Hadassah is consistently posting updates that can be shared with your networks.
