Pennsylvania Senate Government Committee passes anti-BDS bill (HB2107) by a unanimous vote on September 27, 2016.

Dear Friends of Israel, 

On September 27, 2016,  Pennsylvania joined the ranks of those states who are actively fighting the anti-Israel, anti-Semitic commercial attacks against Israel by voting overwhelmingly for anti-boycott legislation. HB 2107 prohibits the State of Pennsylvania from signing a procurement contract with any company that engages in boycott, divestment, sanctions (BDS) against Israel. HB 2107 passed the Pennsylvania House of Representatives earlier this year by a unanimous vote.  This legislation opposes economic warfare which would threaten the sovereignty and security of allies and trade partners of the United States, including Israel.


We are proud that our state has chosen to stand on the right side of history and uphold our historic opposition to any discrimination on the basis of race, religion or ethnic origin.

Thank you for letting your senators know that we Pennsylvanians stand with our ally Israel.

We look forward to this bill moving forward successfully through the Pennsylvania state legislature and on to the Governor's desk.

Through print materials, speakers, programs, conferences, missions to Israel, campaigns, social media and Internet resources, we ensure that the story of Israel's achievements and ongoing challenges is told on campuses, in capitols, and in communities around the world.
