DVD Inspires 12 Year-old’s “SLAVERY IN CHOCOLATE MAKING”
|Fair Trade Judaica is excited to bring you this guest blog by Jesse Noily, 12 years old of Oakland, CA. He was introduced to our “Bean of Affliction: Chocolate, Child Labor, and Choosing Fair Trade” campaign at a friend’s Passover Seder. He decided to focus on this issue for a year-end report at school. After watching “The Dark Side of Chocolate” DVD and visiting a local fair trade chocolate company, he wrote this report and made a video (Coming soon!). You can read Jesse's report on our website.

New Weavers Making Tallit
Thanks to everyone who has purchased a MayaWorks’ Fair Trade tallit in the last two years, the demand has exceeded the ability of Lilli Carmen Osario from Comalpa, who has been the first and only weaver of this beautiful tallit. She was honored to travel to another village in the Guatemalan Highlands and train five new women in the intricate design and weaving process.
You can read The Story Behind MayaWorks’ New Purple Tallit on our website.
FTJ Accepted as Fair Trade Federation Member!
|Fair Trade Judaica is excited to be accepted as the newest member of the Fair Trade Federation, the US based trade association of fair trade made handicrafts from around the world. Their vision “is a just and sustainable global economic system where purchasing and production choices are made with concern for the well-being of people and the environment, creating a world where all people have viable economic options to meet their own needs. They seek to alleviate poverty by continually and significantly expanding the practice of trade that values the labor and dignity of all people.”
