Give a Gift of Sustainability this Holiday Season
Come purchase delicious fair trade olive oil and tapenade on November 13 & 20 and December 4 during the coffee hour. For centuries, olive trees have been a source of livelihood for Palestinians. UU’s for a Just Peace in Israel-Palestine (UUJPIP) purchased the products from Canaan Fair Trade, which fosters sustainability and economic empowerment among Palestinian farmers organized in village cooperatives. Many Palestinian farmers have had olive groves destroyed by the Israeli Government or Israeli settlers. Israeli human rights groups such as Rabbis for Human Rights have volunteered in solidarity with Palestinian farmers during the harvest.
