USY Goes BIG ... See MoreSee Less


March 29, 2017, 12:00am - March 29, 2017, 8:59pm

The Boycott Divestment and Sanctions movement, or BDS, describes itself as a “movement for the freedom, justice and equality of the Palestinian people”. In reality, BDS does little for the Palestinian people, and instead demonizes the Jewish state by boycotting its products and the products of those that associate with it. BDS also promotes the withdrawal of worldwide financial support from Israeli organizations and institutions. United as a USY community, we will work to act against this intolerable organization by promoting Israeli products within our community and beyond. On March 29th, join us for USY Goes BIG Day 2017, when we will combat this boycott by Buying Israeli Goods together! Post a picture or video of yourself buying Israel goods with the hashtag #USYgoesBIG to participate. Feel free to contact anyone from the USY Israel team with questions!
