Agudath Israel Weighs in On the Ben & Jerry’s Decision to Boycott Yehudah, Shomron and East Jerusalem

The Agudah’s statement is as follows:

The recent announcement by the Ben & Jerry’s ice cream company that it would no longer sell its products in Yehudah, Shomron or East Jerusalem has brought the issue of BDS once again to the forefront of public discourse.

Agudath Israel is on longstanding record opposing BDS as a form of antisemitism. Agudah has advocated for anti-BDS laws across the United States, and has defended their constitutionality in courts of law.

This case illustrates why economic boycott against Israel is so objectionable, and why it is so important to stand firm against BDS. We urge all states that have anti-BDS laws to apply those laws as appropriate in this case. And we urge all states that have not as yet enacted anti-BDS laws to use this case as impetus to pass such legislation.

  1. I’m grateful that q reputable organization came out with such an official statement. I do question, albeit not challenging – just in search of clarification – what legal standing the various kashruth certification organizations have to rescind their certificates from the firm.
