Congregation B’nai Jacob in Woodbridge, Congregation Rodeph Sholom in Bridgeport, Congregation B’nai Torah in Trumbull, Beth El Synagogue in Torrington, Temple Shearith Israel in Ridgefield, and Temple Emanuel of Greater New Haven in Orange are among the Connecticut shuls taking part in the 2012 Israel Bonds High Holiday appeals that will be conducted in synagogues throughout the country on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
Bonds President and CEO Izzy Tapoohi said the theme of the appeals – This is Israel –“will encourage worshippers to invest in a nation of heritage, courage and inspiration. At the same time. They will have the opportunity to acquire a dependable investment well-suited for these uncertain economic times.”
During High Holiday services, worshippers will be presented with tab cards enabling them to designate the type and amount of the Israel bond they intend to purchase. The Bonds organization currently offers a choice of fixed rate bonds or floating rate bonds. Available instruments provide a choice of maturities, as well as income-generating bonds or bonds paying interest upon maturity.
Individuals indicating they wish to purchase Israel bonds will have the opportunity to do so online. Since its launch in late September 2011, sales via the online site have exceeded $12.3 million.
