Olive Oil Workshop--.jpg

As a group of Maccabees, students will refine the olive oil needed for the Temple Menorah while they:

  • Pit fresh olives and squeeze them with  hand press;
  • Strain and spin the extract in a centrifuge to separate the pure oil;
  • Enjoy a video of an olive factory in Italy, which introduces them to the modern process;
  • Fashion a wick out of cotton for use when lighting the Menorah;
  • Make their very own Menorah;
  • Take home a sample of the oil.
