In the first nine days since Hamas brutally attacked Israel on Oct. 7, Israel Bonds—which supports the Jewish state with its sales, which have totaled more than $50 billion since 1951—raised $200 million. Since then, Israel Bonds has raised four times that amount, raising its total in the past month to more than $1 billion.
“This is Israel Bonds’ highest surge of investment ever, which demonstrates the strong support for Israel of the Jewish communities and Israel’s supporters in the United States and around the world,” said Dani Naveh, president and CEO of Israel Bonds, in a statement.
The new investments have come from 15 U.S. state and municipal governments and from institutions, Israel Bonds stated.
“Jews from around the world came forward to be part of the story that is Israel,” Isaac Herzog, Israeli president, stated in a release.
“In those critical early years, Israel Bonds served as a primary organ of the Jewish people in building the basic infrastructure of our young country,” he added. “It is no surprise that it is there for us now, helping mobilize world Jewry in immediate and urgent action for the State of Israel.”
