On Chanukah, we remember the Maccabees, a small band of fighters who challenged the larger culture, and won religious freedom for the Jewish people.
Our celebration includes lighting candles, eating latkes and chocolate gelt and practicing Tikkun Olam. This Chanukah, we can collectively practice Tikkun Olam by buying our gelt from Divine Chocolate co-owned by the Kuapa Kokoo Fair Trade cooperative in Ghana. Fair Trade standards prohibit the use of child labor, a significant part of the ivory Coasts’ cocoa farming work force.
This Chanukah, we can collectively practice Tikkun Olam by buying chocolate from the 65,000 member farmers of Kuapa Kokoo, a Fair Trade cooperative in Ghana who are co-owners of Divine Chocolate. Fair Trade standards prohibit the use of child labor.
There are so many ways this fundraiser does good; profits support Congregation Beth Evergreen’s religious school, Divine Chocolate donates 10% of all sales to Fair Trade Judaica and T’ruah supporting their efforts in ending child slavery in the cocoa fields and using Divine Chocolate as our Gelt source, supports the first Fairtrade-certified small-holder farmers' organization in West Africa.
