times - call for "Buy Israeli"
August 9, 2002
Members of Britains Jewish community are being urged to help
Israels crisis-affected economy by buying Israeli-made Yomtov
gifts on the Internet.
A website www.shopinisrael.com was set up earlier
this year in America to help support Israeli producers and manufacturers.
It sells a range of items which includes clothes, crafts, Judaica,
wine, chocolates and flowers.
A spokesperson for the website, Sue Swerner, said: Israel
needs our support more than ever. We can all do something to help
Israel today, by buying Yomtov gifts from Israel.
