Mission and Strategy

Fair Trade Judaica is building a fair trade movement in the Jewish community, linking Jewish values of human dignity, self-sufficiency, and environmental sustainability with fair trade standards assuring fair and livable wages, no child labor, healthy and safe working conditions. We accomplish this through outreach/education, and expanding the production, distribution, and sale of Fair Trade Judaica products.

Our Long term Vision

We envision a world where Jewish consumers recognize fair trade as an expression of core Jewish values, seek out fair trade products, and use our purchasing power to build thriving communities of artisans and farmers around the world.

Our Work is Guided by these Values:
