The Industry, Trade and Labor Ministry is teaming up with American and Canadian Jewish community representatives to promote the businesses of artists and toy-makers from Sderot on the Internet in Jewish communities across North America. The Web site, www.madeinshderot.com, was conceived by an Israeli entrepreneur as a way of helping small manufacturers from Sderot increase sales, which have been hurt over the last six years as the city has suffered from Kassam attacks. The Web site sells judaica items, ceramics, jewelry and toys -all produced by residents of Sderot.
