Israel Bonds (December 15, 2023)

Israel and its people need the support of the world today more than at any other time since the Yom Kippur War. One of the many ways our local communities has supported the State of Israel in the past was through bond drives. Below are photos from our archives depicting the different bond drives sponsored by our communities.
