Israeli building materials are among the most important products of the Jewish state, a new book by a Jerusalem-based company says.
The Israel-US trade pact, which was negotiated in 1994, is seen by many in the Jewish world as a symbol of American support for Israel’s right to exist.
The U.N. General Assembly adopted a resolution calling on the world to support the two countries in their efforts to achieve a peace deal.
It also condemned Iran’s nuclear program.
The book, titled “Building America: The Jewish Story of the World,” by the Jerusalem-headquartered company Israeli Building Materials, has been described as a “must-read” by American Jewish leaders.
“The Israeli-US pact is a symbol for the strength of the relationship between the two nations, and for the Jewish people in general,” said Rabbi Aaron Stein, president of the Reform Rabbinical Assembly, a Jewish denomination that advocates for Jewish nationalism and equality.
“Building America” was written with the blessing of President Donald Trump.
The United States is a leading producer of building materials in the world.
In 2016, it exported $10.5 billion worth of goods, according to the International Trade Administration.
“It’s an interesting book,” said Avi Mayer, a former Israeli trade official and now a fellow at the Brookings Institution, a Washington, D.C.-based think tank.
“I’m glad it was written.”
Building America is based in New York City and is owned by the nonprofit Israel Foundation.
Its sales representatives are paid in the U, U.K., U.A.E., Israel and elsewhere.
The company’s main product line is wall construction materials, which include concrete and steel.
The group’s website says its product is “the perfect material for your home or business, or your community’s future.”
“The best way to understand this amazing material is to try it yourself,” the website says.
It also has a “Wall Building Guide” that covers the history of the Israeli building industry.
Its website says it has sold more than 40 million of the products it makes, including more than 50,000 of the concrete and other materials that make up the wall wall.
The products are sold through its own stores, including a mall in New Jersey.
