Fair Trade Your Chanukah

Chanukah menorah for feature

On Chanukah, we remember the Maccabees, a small band of fighters who challenged the larger culture, and won religious freedom for the Jewish people.

The farmers who grow Fair Trade cocoa, and the artisans who make the beautiful menorahs and dreidels for us to use at Chanukah, are like modern day Maccabees, courageously struggling to build decent lives for their families.  Though Fair Trade, they are able to earn a liveable wage, invest profits back into the community, and create products so that we can celebrate and enjoy our history.
