An excellent way to respond to Boycott campaigns is to financially support Israel through buying Israeli products. There are many ways to do this: by purchasing items directly from Israeli stores online (see links below), by buying Israeli-made products in American stores, or by ordering Israeli consumer products directly from their American-based vendors. Lastly, a message from Daniel Ayalon, Israeli ambassador to the U.S., brings attention to IsraelExport.org, a Web site launched to boost Israel's economy.
Below is a listing of some of the stores that sell products bearing the label "Made in Israel." This merchandies is manufactured to U.S. standards in factories in Israel, many of which imploy recent immigranst.
This is, of course, a partial list. If you find products "Made in Israel" in other stores, please let us know. Neither JFNA, the federations, nor any of the beneficiary agencies benefit financially from any of your purchases.
