BUY ISRAEL BONDS
In addition to "political" action, Israel would greatly benefit from "economic" action at this time. One of the best ways to show your solidarity with Israel is to buy Israel bonds. If you have not yet made a purchase of an Israel bond in 2015 please make it NOW! Rates are as high as 3.85%. Limited time only! Please contact our Israel Bonds representative, Robert Lunzer, at 212-446-5835 or robert.lunzer1@israelbonds.com. For current rates visit, http://www.israelbonds.com
