Celebrate a Fair Trade Rosh Hashanah
 
Rosh Hashanah is coming early this year (September 8th), and there are many “fair trade” ways to celebrate the New Year!
Add sweetness to your New Year with Wholesome Sweetener’s Organic Raw and Amber honeys. The honey comes from fair trade cooperatives in Mexico, so the farmers also get a “sweet” and fair wage. Wholesome Sweeteners’ honeys are available in a variety of stores; to find a store near you, go to their website: Wholesome Sweeteners: Store Locator. Fair Trade Judaica - Organic Honey
