Buying an Israel bond is not charitable giving. It is an investment. Israel has never defaulted on payment of Israel bonds in its 62 years of existence. Each Israel bonds investment matters regardless of amount. When you bless Israel, you bless the world. Israel bonds help develop every aspect of Israel’s economy, such as desert cultivation, immigrant resettlement, new industry creation, export growth, as well as support a nation whose extraordinary innovations benefit the globe!
An Israel bond makes a great gift! Starting at $100, you can purchase a Mazol Tov gift bond for a wedding, a bar or bat mitzvah or a graduation. You can even give them as a donation for your congregation (May be tax deductable; speak to your tax advisor.). Finally, investing in Israel Bonds is smart! Although Israel bonds are not rated, Israel has received investment grade rating from S&P and the bonds are backed by Israel’s full faith and credit. In this global economic crisis, investing in Israel is good stewardship for those who love Israel and the Jewish people! For weekly rates and to order online, go to www.israelbonds.com.
