Development Corporation for Israel/Israel Bonds secured more than $60 million in Israel bond purchases during a special appeal on October 16 at the Crystal Plaza in Livingston, sending an emphatic message of hope with Israel at war.
The investments in Israel bonds came from community leaders and banks.
Dani Naveh, president of Israel Bonds, and Aviv Ezra, deputy head of Mashav, Israel’s Agency for International Development Cooperation within the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, spoke at the meeting.
“The Greater Metropolitan New Jersey community has once again stepped up for Israel in its time of need,” said Noah Marcus, Israel Bonds’ associate director for New Jersey & Rockland/Upstate New York. “I am honored and humbled to work with such an amazing group of lay leaders, and in awe of how quickly we were able to mobilize and raise much-needed investment in the State of Israel.”
On October 12, several days before the meeting in Livingston, Israel Bonds and its affiliates announced that during the first five days of the war, they had secured over $200 million in bond sales worldwide — including $150 million in purchases from U.S. states, local municipal governments, and the New Jersey-based financial services organization Cross River.
