Tu Bishvat: Prefer Fruit Grown in Israel

Rabbi Shlomo Ishon of the Keter Institute explains that it is preferable to purchase Tu Bishvat fruit from Israeli farmers in order to support them and reinforce settlement of the Land. Additionally, according to Torah Law, support of Israeli produce is preferable even if costlier than non-Jewish produce, unless the difference will cause significant financial loss.
