Newsletter for March 5, 2021
Shalom ZOA Members, Friends and Supporters of Israel,
We hope that our newsletter this week finds you and your loved ones well. For those who are ill, we wish for you a refuah shlema.
Our Media Action Guide Updated
The Iran deal, the “peace process,” the International Criminal Court, Israel’s upcoming elections, Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria, the BDS movement, false accusations of medical “apartheid” – these topics and more will continue to be in the news media in the weeks and months ahead, and supporters of Israel can make a difference by being in touch with media decision-makers and by submitting letters to the editor. Contact editors and news directors and politely, calmly and concisely explain the fallacies and/or missing facts in their reports. Submit letters to the editor to explain context and dispute claims. And remember to be pro-active also to tout the many positive aspects of Israel or to let the media know about what Israel’s enemies are doing. Both of these are often unreported. Please see our updated Media Action Guide for contact information for dozens of news outlets at:

Buy Israel for Pesach!
If you have been in a supermarket in the past couple of weeks, depending on where you live and where you shop, you have noticed that the kosher-for-Passover foods are available for purchase. Each year (again, depending on where you shop) there is a wider array of goods to buy. Please consider buying as many goods produced in Israel as possible and also please thank the store manager for carrying so many products from Israel. You know about the boycotts that are a pillar of the BDS movement. You can start a “BUYCOTT” among your friends and family and enjoy the bounty from our homeland. If the stores where you shop do not carry goods from Israel, ask the store manager to consider selling them – and then be sure to purchase them.
