Chamber of Commerce, this is an effort
to counter the ongoing boycott of Israeli
products by those groups whose goal is to
damage the Israeli economy.
In the past three years, the "Buy
Israel Goods" campaign has successfully
responded to global boycotts involving
protesters standing outside stores, asking
shoppers not to buy Israeli products, such
as SodaStream. A successful company mak-
ing an environmentally sound product,
SodaStream has one of its factories in the
community of Maale Adumin, which boy-
cotters claim is on Palestinian land.
Of its workers, 500 hundred are West
Bank Palestinians, 400 are Arabs from
Jerusalem and 200 are a mix of Israeli Jews,
Druze and Jews from Ethiopia, Russia, Iran
and other foreign countries. They work
side-by-side for equal pay and benefits.
"We must defeat the boycotters who

advocate destructive, instead of construc-
tive measures, who undermine hopes for
peaceful coexistence and whose only goal
is to cripple and damage Israel," said Roz
Rothstein, StandWithUs co-founder and
CEO.
Last year, local Israel supporters were in
many stores, buying a variety of products
and thanking the store managers for stock-
ing Israeli goods. They even discovered
stores they had not previously patronized.
To find such things as food items, wines,
women's clothing, shoes, Judaica, giftware,
books, music, jewelry and much more in
our area, go to wwwBuyIsraelGoods.org .
Look for Michigan in the list of areas. The
Michigan page has a listing of categories of
products and the locations of stores carry-
ing those products.

Israel Goods Week, go to www.standwithus.

take along a camera when shopping and
email pictures and videos of their efforts on
behalf of Israel to standwithusmichigan@

Of Two Minds, a documentary about the
lives and struggles of men and women
living with bipolar disorder, was shown
to a sold-out audience at the Maple
Theater in Bloomfield Township on Feb.
10. Monni and Joel Must sponsored the
movie, donating all proceeds to Kadima's
Miya Jo Must home for young women
struggling with bipolar disorder. This
residence is named in memory of their
daughter who lost her life to this illness.
The film documents the daily lives

of several individuals afflicted with bipolar
disorder and the effect their illness has
upon their personal relationships. Monni
Must and her daughter, Sabrina, also fea-
tured in this film, spoke emotionally about
losing Miya to bipolar disorder. Following
the movie, a panel of five answered ques-
tions from the audience.
For information on Kadima, a mental
health agency that provides psychological
services, residential options, supported
employment and social activities, call
(248) 559-8235.

New Treatment Offered
For Fibromyalgia Patients
St. Joseph Mercy Oakland in Pontiac is seek-
ing volunteers interested in participating
in a research study testing a new treatment
for fibromyalgia, a medical condition that is
most often associated with full-body chronic
pain and fatigue.
The study involves the use of an experi-
mental medical device designed to deliver
therapeutic electrical stimulation to regions

of the brain that are believed to be involved
in the abnormal pain processing and other
symptoms of fibromyalgia.
Patients enrolled in the study will receive
treatment and evaluation at an outpatient
office twice a week for 12 weeks. Only 60
patients will be enrolled in the study.
Individuals ages 22-65 who are suffering
from fibromyalgia can call (248) 254-
6480 or (800) 787-5940 or visit www.
neuropointstudy.com .
