(Courtesy of Israel Bonds) The Development Corporation for Israel/Israel Bonds secured more than $60 million in Israel bond purchases during a special appeal on October 16 at the Crystal Plaza in Livingston, sending an emphatic message of hope while Israel is at war.

The event featured remarks from Israel Bonds President and CEO Dani Naveh as well as Aviv Ezra, deputy head of Mashav, Israel’s Agency for International Development Cooperation within the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The investments in Israel bonds came from community leaders and banks.

“The Greater Metropolitan New Jersey community has once again stepped up for Israel in its time of need,” said Noah Marcus, Israel Bonds associate director, New Jersey & Rockland/Upstate New York. “I am honored and humbled to work with such an amazing group of lay leaders, and in awe of how quickly we were able to mobilize and raise much-needed investment in the State of Israel.”

Several days before the event, Israel Bonds and its affiliates announced on October 12 that during the first five days of the war, they had secured over $200 million in bond sales worldwide–including $150 million in purchases from U.S. states, local municipal governments, and the New Jersey-based financial services organization Cross River.

“The extent to which the United States has supported Israel is incredible, demonstrating how this support cuts across partisan lines and is deeply rooted nationwide,” Naveh said. “The response in New Jersey and across many U.S. states was immediate, and demand exceeded the amount of Israel bonds that we were able to sell at that time. At the same time, thousands of Jews from all over the world have been expressing their support for Israel by also purchasing bonds for themselves and on behalf of various organizations such as hospitals, emergency service organizations and an organization supporting Israeli soldiers.”

For 72 years, Israel Bonds has generated $49 billion worldwide, across all Bonds affiliates, in financial support for the building and development of every sector of Israel’s economy. Israel bonds are a smart investment, with strong rates, and are meaningful investments, serving as a symbolic connection with Israel and the people of Israel for Jews worldwide.
