Celebrate Chanukah with Guilt Free Gelt

Our friends at Fair Trade Judaica, partnering with Divine Chocolate, have pulled together a great campaign to celebrate Chanukah and support fair trade. Learn more about Fair Trade Judaica’s Guilt Free Gelt campaign below and be fair this holiday season.

The gelt we eat on Chanukah is a reminder of the freedom our people won many years ago. Today, however, young children are trafficked and forced into working on cocoa farms with no pay and in unsafe conditions in the Ivory Coast, where more than half the world’s cocoa is grown.

This Chanukah, we can support 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.   The organization is democratically run, and their children attend school rather than work in the fields.

Fair Trade Judaica is pleased to be partnering with T’ruah on our Guilt-free Gelt Campaign.  Along with your gelt order, you’ll receive a postcard with educational resources, made available with Truah’s support.

Divine Chocolate is donating 10% of all sales to Fair Trade Judaica when you enter promo code FTJUDAICAat checkout, and your name will be entered to win a beautifully handcrafted wire and bead Fair Trade menorah made in South Africa.
