As your support starts to reach us in Sderot there is an issue with the customs / Postal authority, that is… any parcel with a value over $69.95 is subject to import taxes which is 29% not only on the package but on the cost of the shipping as well.
We ask that when you send a package that the value not exceed the $69.95 amount per parcel. This will help us avoid paying the tax on these gifts and having to travel to Tel Aviv to pick them up.
The best way to send clothing and hygiene items if possible is to either bring them with you when you come to Israel on tour or send them with a group that is coming to Israel. We will be glad to meet you at the airport on the day you arrive or meet you in Jerusalem or Tel Aviv, which ever is easiest for you. Maybe you might want bring your gift to Sderot yourself and see first hand the reality of life in Sderot.
Thank you for your generosity.
