Baltimore, MD - Sept. 11, 2015 - Israel Bonds Maryland and its long-time partners in their 100 percent High Holiday matching campaign, The Associated: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore and Hopkins Federal Savings Bank, welcome two new partners this year to the program: The Haron Dahan Foundation and Sandra R. & Malcolm C. Berman.
Together, the four partners will continue to provide matching funds for all Israel bonds purchased during the 2015 High Holiday season and hope to make this year’s campaign the most successful in Baltimore. The addition of these two new matching partners helps to meet the goal that the 2015 High Holiday campaign will succeed in having last year’s entire $9 million in Israel Bonds High Holiday investments matched, resulting in $18 million going to support and maintain the economic strength of the State of Israel.
“People love the idea that every dollar they invest during their synagogues’ High Holiday appeal will be doubled by the matching partners in support of Israel,” says Alan Dorenfeld, executive director for the Israel Bonds Maryland office.
The matching partner program began in 2006 with Hopkins Federal Savings Bank providing a 50 percent match. In 2008, The Associated became Israel Bonds’ second matching partner for a 100 percent match.
Over the years, this High Holiday campaign has generated investments of more than $58 million for Israel. Last year, more than 3,000 individuals participated.
“We are proud of our long-standing matching partnership with Israel Bonds,” said Marc B. Terrill, president of The Associated. “It provides us with the opportunity to invest in our Jewish future by helping build a strong Israel.”
Development Corporation for Israel/Israel Bonds was established in 1951, and funds from the sale of Israel bonds have been used to support every aspect of Israel’s economy.
