“Virtual” Fair Trade Kosher for Passover Chocolate Bar Now Available!
Although we can enjoy Fair Trade chocolate for 51 weeks of the year, it’s ironic that during Passover, when we celebrate our journey from slavery into freedom, there is no Fair Trade Kosher for Passover chocolate available this year. FTJ is working hard to make this a reality for Pesach 5773/2013. As a gift for your donation to support this work, you will receive your very own “Virtual” Fair Trade Kosher for Passover chocolate bar that you can place on your Seder plate and draw attention to this issue.
For Your Passover Seder
As we celebrate our people’s freedom during Passover, let us remember that others are still enslaved. Fair Trade Judaica has developed several readings that you can add to your Haggadah during your Passover Seder, focusing on the role of trafficked and enforced child labor in the cocoa fields.
And, there are photos of cocoa beans that you can download and place on your Seder plate, symbolizing that slavery is still, unfortunately, a contemporary issue.
