Peace Oil – olive oil just got even better

posted by Homeshuling

From another former Mosh-nik, David Sokal. Thanks, Judi, for the heads up about this worthy project. (Oh yeah Mosh, you look so good to me…..)
I sell a very special olive oil for Jews and anyone else who cares about peace and Israel: Peace Oil.
Read my Hanukkah web page at
http://www.peaceoil.net/html_1/gift_hanuka.html
Make sure to turn up your speakers to hear the hanukkah music. The music is part of a Flash presentation that appears at the top of the page. The whole idea behind the page is to show how olive oil is a link between Jews and Palestinians, between Judaism and Islam.
Explore the website to learn more about this one-of-a-kind project and product. Let me know what you think:dsokal@peaceoil.net.
I have been selling Palestinian olive since Sept. 2006. I buy it from three fair trade groups two of which are Israelis working with Palestinian farmers. See http://www.peaceoil.net/html_1/israeli_groups.html.
The third group, Canaan Fair Trade, is owned and operated by Palestinians in Jenin. They buy olive oil from 1700 West Bank farmers. They are now the largest exporter of Palestinian olive oil. See http://www.canaanfairtrade.com.
There’s still time to order for Hanukkah (or for gifts for non-Hanukkah celebrating friends, family and co-workers).
Happy Hanukkah!
David

Teaching the Four Questions to young children
One of the greatest privileges of being a kindergarten teacher in a Jewish day school is having the opportunity to teach children to recite the four questions. Unlike almost anything else I teach them about Jewish ritual, this is "real work." The candles will get blessed, kiddush will be recited, an

Guess what's Kosher for Passover (this will change your life.)
I'm not exaggerating. The bane of my Passover existence has been pareve baking. I cook a lot more meat during the holiday than I do the rest of the year, which means a lot more pareve desserts. Which has, up until now, usually meant margarine made from disgusting ingredients such as cottonseed oi

Why I love the New American Haggadah (and it's not just because I got to have a martini with Nathan Englander.)
I'm not a haggadah junkie. I know many Jews whose shelves are overflowing with numerous versions of the Haggadah - from the traditional Maxwell House to the not-so-traditional Santa Cruz - and whose seders are an amalgam of commentaries, poems, and (alas) responsive readings, from these dog-eared, p

Best Hamentashen Ever, even better. And, a Purim opera.
This time of year, I'm always excited when I look at my google analytics and see that people have landed at my blog by searching for "hamentashen recipe". I love the idea of people all over the world making my great-grandmother's fabulous hamentashen, the same ones my mom made with me and that I mak
