Support Trader Joe's and Israel this Sunday!

Support Trader Joe's and Israel this Sunday!

Dear Friends,

Recently, anti-Israel protestors have rallied at local Trader Joe’s stores throughout the bay area of San Francisco and bombarded customers and store managers with anti-Israel propaganda.

These "activists" have been vandalizing the Israeli products by disfiguring them with labels depicting an Israeli Orange that is half a hand grenade and stickers that read “Don’t Buy into Apartheid; Boycott Israeli Goods.”

This issue has come to light with a highly disturbing video on YouTube “Dishelving Israeli Goods at Trader Joe’s.” Click on the title or the picture below. Please view this video and see why it is so imperative for all of us o act now. This is a deliberate campaign to employ boycott, divestment and sanction initiatives against Israel.

The Galilee Institute echoes the calls of the local Jewish and non-Jewish communities of San Fran to show support for Trader Joe’s and Israel by buying these quality and delicious products along with our regular groceries for the week.

Many email messages have been sent out by the synagogues and organizations on the North Peninsula inviting you and your family to visit your local Trader Joe’s store this Sunday, August 23rd at 11 a.m. and then again on Wednesday, August 26 at 7 p.m. to buy these great products.

We hope to have as many people there as possible to thank the Managers and Assistant Managers for their support and for stocking Israeli products.

The goal is to support Trader Joe’s and to show our deep appreciation as they continue to stock Israeli products and for not bowing to the pressure of anti-Israel organizations and sentiments.

Please join in on one of these very important days at your local Trader Joe’s

1820 S. Grant St., San Mateo,
765 Broadway, Millbrae,
1482 El Camino Real, San Carlos

The Israeli products include:

Harvest Grains Israeli Couscous
Pastures of Eden Feta Cheese
Dorot garlic, cilantro and basic cubes (frozen food section)

Let us stand together as one, with our hearts, our feet and our dollars to help Israel.

With the abundant blessings of Jerusalem!
