Part of the magic of Israel is our diversity,
our vibrant colors, and the sense of community,
social responsibility and togetherness that we all share.
“Kol Israel arevim ze laza” means we are all responsible for one another
and that is a fundamental truth we rely on.
So… we do our little bit for our community.
In each IsraeliBox we choose an item that is made by a local non-profit organization.
This is our way of giving back to the community and supporting important causes and organizations.
