The gelt we eat on Chanukah is a reminder of the freedom our people won many years ago. Today, however, young children are trafficked and forced into working on cocoa farms with no pay and in unsafe conditions in the Ivory Coast, where more than half the world’s cocoa is grown.
This Chanukah, we can support the 60,000 member farmers of Kuapa Kokoo, a Fair Trade cooperative in Ghana who are co-owners of Divine Chocolate. The organization is democratically run, and their children attend school rather than work in the fields.
Divine Chocolate is donating 10% of all sales to Fair Trade Judaica when you enter promo code FTJUDAICA at checkout, and your name will be entered to win a beautifully handcrafted wire and bead Fair Trade menorah made in South Africa.
