IsrACTION DAY 2017 IS DECEMBER 17. SUPPORT ISRAEL AND GIVE BACK TO YOUR COMMUNITY!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Los Angeles, CA, November 9, 2017, 2017) For the second year, StandWithUs is partnering with North West Friends of Israel and Sussex Friends of Israel for the 4th annual IsrAction Day 2017, a global movement with the aim of supporting Israel and giving back to local communities.
Launching this year on December 17, IsrAction Day is an international grassroots movement which encourages support of Israel as well as giving back to your local community during the Chanukkah/ Christmas time of year. This is achieved by purchasing Israeli or kosher goods in local supermarkets and donating them to the needy in your hometown. Purchases can be dropped off at local collection centers or directly to the selected charity.
The movement takes place during the Chanukah / Christmas season, a perfect time for giving back to your community and reaching out to those more needy wherever you live. Photos and videos are uploaded to the IsrAction Day Facebook group and website to showcase the global movement, doing good for Israel and the local communities, together.

“IsrAction Day connects with people’s core beliefs about Israel, about giving back, especially in the time of Chanukah and Christmas,” remarks Winston Pickett, Sussex Friends of Israel. “Everyone can participate and their action will have a direct effect. IsrAction Day epitomizes a simple truth: Go out and do it with the knowledge that the reward of a good deed is the deed itself.”
“From Jerusalem the capital of Israel, literally the city of Peace, SWU is thrilled to join again with our partners on this important day”, comments Michael Dickson, executive director of StandWithUs Israel, “The entire family can enjoy IsrAction Day, and know that they are contributing to the less fortunate in their areas and standing up for Israel. We thank everyone for participating in IsrAction Day.”
Roz Rothstein, CEO of StandWithUs added, “We began StandWithUs in 2001 with the purpose of educating about Israel. One of the things we are so proud of is the Israeli spirit of giving back.
