Teaming up with the Hampton Synagogue for the Fourth of July weekend, Israel Bonds sold more than $9 million in Israeli securities at a series of exciting and well-attended events. Israel Bonds President & CEO Izzy Tapoohi said it was a spectacularly successful experience and gladly accepted Rabbi Marc Schneier’s suggestion that it become an annual summer happening at the Hampton Synagogue. “In addition to being our auspicious summer debut in an area of extraordinary potential,” Mr. Tapoohi said,”it was one of the single most successful synagogue events we have ever held.”

Co-chaired by Carol Levin and Jeff Weisenfeld, the weekend included a special talk on Shabbat by Mr. Tapoohi, who is a noted expert on the Israeli economy; a Saturday night talent show featuring Broadway entertainers and an invitational Sunday morning brunch honoring Florence and Michael Edelstein for their generous support of the Israel Bonds program. New York State Comptroller Tom DiNapoli was an enthusiastic guest of honor and said that New York State continues to invest substantially in Israel bonds because it supports the only democracy in the Middle East and is a “strong, solid investment.”
