Your Holiday Shopping Wish List: Buy Israel!
This Holiday season, whether you’re gathering around the Christmas Tree, a Menorah or a Kinara, you probably have some last minute shopping to do! This December, why not buy a very special present from Israel? While the Holy Land is a perfect fit for this time of the year, there’s a lot more to Israel than Holy Sites and hummus! Israeli products are sold all over the U.S. due to a unique combination of fresh ideas, original design, and their extremely high quality – everything from sterling silver to beauty products and furniture.
Not only is buying Israel going to please your friends and family, but is a great way to show your support for the State of Israel! So how do you find Israeli products? They’re probably closer than you think, as Israel and the United States are huge trade partners, with U.S. importing almost $14 billion dollars in goods from Israel last year. A great new initiative called BuyIsraelGoods.com, or BIG, helps you find retailers in your area that have Israel on the shelves. BIG is a project started by the American-Israel Chamber of Commerce (AICC) and StandWithUs (SWU).
Whether you’re in New York City, St. Louis or Las Vegas, the website has virtually all of the United States’ regions mapped out.
