Oil Press and Chanukah Fun!
Participants sort and hand-press fresh olives in an old fashioned olive press made of wood and cast iron, then decant the olive juice with a modern centrifuge to quickly extract the pure olive oil - authentic "Shemen Zayit Zach”. As the olive oil is refined, children hand spin wicks out of cotton and then light the Chanukah Menorah with the resulting oil.
We will also eat snacks, hear PJ Library stories, and sing Chanukah songs. Fun for the whole family!
