On March 30, StandWithUs and the American-Israel Chamber of Commerce are calling for a BIG - Buy Israeli Goods - Day. Responding to a global anti-Israeli boycott on the same date where protestors will stand outside stores asking shoppers not to buy Israeli products, the BIG Day effort urges schools, campuses, synagogues, community organizations, and individuals to counter the boycott and celebrate Israel by designating March 30 as a day to purchase Israeli goods at local stores.
Linda Slucker, NCJW's President, and Nancy K. Kaufman, NCJW's CEO, have asked us to show our support for Israel by participating in the BIG Day effort by purchasing Israeli products on Wednesday, March 30.
For more than 60 years, NCJW has been committed to ensuring the survival and security of the State of Israel and has been actively involved in contributing to her future by sponsoring programs that foster and support education, promoting the empowerment of women, and bridging the gaps in society for Israel's vulnerable women, children, and families. In recent years, a dangerous and very serious delegitimization campaign has been waged against Israel. Supporting efforts like BIG Day is just one of the many ways NCJW is standing for the establishment of a just and permanent peace for Israel and helping to create a vibrant future for the women, children and families who live there.
So please mark your calendars for Wednesday, March 30, find a local shop that sells your favorite Israeli goods, and join NCJW in support of Israel on BIG Day!
