“BUY BUY Israel” is an easy and proactive way to counter those who want to say “bye bye” to Israel by buying locally-sold Israeli-made products. The Birmingham Jewish Federation encourages people to “BUY BUY ISRAEL” whenever they see an Israeli-made good in Alabama. This initiative is The Birmingham Jewish Federations response to those who want to hurt Israel’s economy through the boycott of Israeli-made goods.
The boycott of Israeli-made goods is part of a larger movement called the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement that aims to delegitimize and hurt the state of Israel. The Birmingham Jewish Federation, through a number of different initiatives and through Update, aim to educate our community on the BDS movement. We want to empower Alabamians to take a stand against BDS and buy Israeli-made goods whenever possible.
Part of “BUY BUY ISRAEL” includes educating our community on where they can find Israeli-made goods. If you spot an Israeli-made good locally, please take a picture of yourself with the item and send it to us at The Birmingham Jewish Federation. We will feature it in Update so others know where to purchase the item. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on “BUY BUY ISRAEL.”
