Purchase Guilt-Free Gelt
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 85,000 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.
Along with your gelt order, you’ll receive a table tent with inspirational information and a kavana (prayer) to say before eating the gelt.
Divine Chocolate is donating 10% of all sales to Fair Trade Judaica and T’ruah to support our efforts in ending child slavery in the cocoa fields.
