A Word From The CEO
A word that is in
frequent use these days
is "uncertain." Whether
in the context of the
economy, global events
or the outlook for the
future, "uncertain" has
become synonymous with
the times. However, when
it comes to Israel's reliance on the Israel
Bonds organization, the word "uncertain" is
never used. Quite the opposite — the Bonds

The Bonds organization represents an
invaluable, strategic national asset for
Israel, providing vital reassurance that Israel
will always have access to a dedicated,
independent, financial pipeline.
