Avi Kaner is the co-owner of US chain Morton Williams Supermarkets as well as a social media activist on behalf of Israel. When ice cream manufacturers Ben and Jerry’s announced in July that its products would no longer be sold to Jewish communities in the West Bank, Kaner went on the counteroffensive, securing agreement from the Morton Williams Board to reduce the Ben & Jerry’s products it sells in its 16 stores in New York and New Jersey by 70 percent. “You’ll be able to find the product, but you’ll have to look for it,” Kaner told the New York Post.
